10 Quick Quotes On Life and Living To Inspire You

Kids always seems to have so much fun. They are masters at being in the moment, and masters at living.

Sure, they don’t have many of the responsibilities that most adults have, but maybe there’s something more to it. Perhaps in addition to not having the responsibilities we have, they are also missing the ego that makes us care what others think, the jaded mind that prevents us from taking chances, and the cautious heart that stifles our ability to truly love.

Maybe.

The great thing about life and living is that we can initiate change in any given moment.

4 Steps to Lucid Dreaming for Your Dream Life

Guest post by Adam Palmer

For many adults, dreams are little more than vague memories that quickly fade after they awaken. Many believe they don’t even dream at all! The vivid dreams we enjoyed as children have all but disappeared, mostly due to stress, alcohol, caffeine, and a society that places no importance on dreaming. Lucid dreaming can help bring back the return of those childhood dreams.

What is Lucid Dreaming?

A lucid dream is a dream in which you know you are dreaming. While you may not always be able to control the dream, you are able to say, beyond a doubt, “This is a dream.” With practice, you can learn to control your dreams. When that happens, there really is no limit to what you can do!

Lucid Dreaming Formula for Success

Step #1 – Stop Destroying Your Sleep

If you want to lucid dream, you need to get quality sleep. This means avoiding things that can interrupt your sleep cycle. That evening cup of coffee is going to have to go, along with cigarettes, alcohol and sugar. You don’t have to give them up completely, but definitely avoid them before bedtime.

Once you’ve cleaned up your sleep time, you’ll be ready to continue with the next steps.

Step #2 – Dream Journaling

Dream journaling builds a powerful foundation for lucid dreaming. Even if you don’t remember your dreams, they are occurring. Journaling not only helps you remember bits and pieces of your dream, it also tells your subconscious mind that you want to be more aware of your dreams. You don’t need a fancy journal to get started; a pen and paper works just fine. However, if you can sometime soon, get something nice that inspires you to commit to the process.

Each morning, as soon as you wake up, stay very still. Keep your eyes closed and try to remember every part of your dreams, even if it’s just a vague feeling. Once you commit it to memory, write it down in your dream journal. Read your journal every night before bed and try to “relive” your dreams. After a few days of practice, you’ll start noticing that you’ll remember more of your dreams.

Step #3 – Reality Checking

Reality checks help you get in the habit of questioning your environment. When you do these checks in real life, you’ll soon find yourself doing them in your dreams as well. This helps your mind become aware that it is dreaming. Reality checks include pinching your nose while trying to breath, looking at your hands to see if they appear normal and trying to push your finger through a wall.

Step #4 – Depth and Stability

At first, lucid dreams are very short and unstable. The excitement of finding yourself in a lucid dream can shatter the awareness and cause you to awaken. You’ll need to practice to increase the depth and stability of those dreams. Daily meditation can really help with that.
Once in your lucid dream, if you feel yourself slipping, focus on your hands. Take a peek at your environment, then go right back to your hands. This helps you stay grounded in your awareness. If you feel the dream fading, try spinning around. No one knows why it works, but it does!

Questioning your surroundings also helps you increase the depth of your lucid dreams. Try to notice the differences between your real-world surroundings and those in your dreamscape.

Creative Uses for Lucid Dreams

Manifestation

Manifestation is one of the best parts of lucid dreaming, as you can conjure up anything in your imagination. It takes practice though. Start by conjuring up small objects. If your mind won’t allow it to appear, imagine it appearing behind you. Visualize it in detail. Then turn round, and you might just find it there!

Once you’ve mastered objects, move on to conjuring full dreamscapes. Take that vacation to the beach, travel to fairy-tale lands, live in your dream mansion – the possibilities are endless. The key is to really live the experience rather than just visualizing it. This sends a message to the universe that maximizes the possibility of manifesting in waking reality.

Creative Problem Solving

Using lucid dreams to solve problems helps you work out all the details before you attempt to solve it in real life. Once you’re in a lucid dream, try issuing a command to your subconscious. For example, tell your mind to show you how to realize your dream job or to show you what is holding you back from changing your career. You can even go vague and just say “show me what I need to see right now.”

Next, spin around and see how the dream changes. If that doesn’t work, imagine a glowing portal, then step through it. Use what you learn from the dream to make changes in your life to realize your full potential.

Whatever you may believe about dreams and sleep, lucid dreaming has been exhaustively proven in science. Whether you see the lucid dream world as your own imagination, your subconscious, a spiritual experience or an alternate reality, don’t magnify or subtract from the experience. With practise, the work pays off and the results are very real and immensely powerful.
