So Now that you know the advantages to Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming compared to other Lucid Dream Induction techniques, its time that I show you exactly how to do in 5 simple steps! (Keep in mind this method is a little bit harder than the others, so it may require a bit of practice to get it right, so don't be disappointed if you don't get it right at first!)
STEP 1: Go to sleep
STEP 2: Deep Relaxation
So to do this you want to again, be comfortable, then you want to lie completely still if possible. Next you want to try to empty your mind. Just focus on the blackness under your eyelids. (For me personally, this is where Binaural Beats would come into handy, just a little tip.) If any thoughts find a way to enter your mind, just try to empty them as quick as you can. Just let them slide through your mind if you will, don't focus on them.
STEP 3: The Hypnagogic State
At this stage, you may start to colors and/or patterns that take over the darkness. You may also hear various sounds or singing voices along with bodily sensations of floating, falling, etc. You'll know when you are in the Hypnagogic state when you experience it. You will feel as if you are in a state of Euphoria, and everything will feel very dream like.
When you feel yourself starting to leave, this is when you can start with some affirmations. Tell yourself and confirm in your mind that you are dreaming. Its important that you still remain still and do not move. If you have to move or itch, them quickly do it and then go back a retain your state of deep relaxation.
Also another question that is frequently asked is,"Can I swallow while in this state, or will it mess up the process?" The answer is yes and no. You can swallow if its bothering you, but keep it natural. Don't force it or make a note in your head, just do it and don't think twice about it.
STEP 4: Create your Dream World
We are going to exit the state of Hypnagogia and enter the dream world, with a technique called Visualization. This part is as simple as using your 5 senses to create an imaginary world. I would start with your strongest sense first then slowly add more sense into your visualization. The key here is to not try to hard to force a dream world to appear, it should come naturally.
If you are having a hard time, just try to imagine a recent dream that was very vivid to you. Imagine that you are back in that dream. Try to recreate the sounds and the scenery all over again. Along with the visualization, use affirmations to aid you. Tell your self, "I am in a Lucid Dream."
You should feel your body start to fade away until you are suddenly in your dream. Once you are in your dream, Preform your reality check of choice, just to make sure. Just try not to excite your self too much when you pass the reality check, otherwise you might accidentally wake yourself up!
