In our waking life, we normally experience several levels of consciousness. We could be fully self-aware, aware, partly self-conscious, or unconscious. As in waking life, there might be different levels of consciousness in dreaming.
The objective of lucid dreaming is to develop the capacity to become aware enough in a dream to be aware that you’re dreaming and to socialize with your dreams to influence desired outcomes. Having the ability to lucid dream generates positive effects on your waking life of feeling more empowered and self-confident to interact with the content and process of residing in your everyday life. Here are a few of the tools for lucid dreaming and a self hypnosis procedure you can use to plan to have and trigger lucid dreaming skills. You will unite these new abilities with the fundamental skills of doing dream job.
Lucid Dreaming Skills
The first skill of lucid dreaming is mindfulness. It starts by asking yourself if in a dream, “am I dreaming?” Here are a few specific things you can do after asking the question, “am I dreaming?”
Look at a watch, and look again. In dreamtime the amounts or face of the watch could be have odd numbers, images or be twisted. Or, take a look at your hands. In a dream they might not be familiar as your own. Or, look at a pool of water, a mirror or window to see your reflection. In a dream that the symptom is often distorted, blurred or unrecognizable. Or reading something in a dream may have writing or content that changes as you read.
You may prearrange and hypnotically practice by means of a symbol in your dream as a sign that you’re dreaming. One dreamer, Betty, uses her power animal, a butterfly, as a cue to realize that she’s dreaming. An experienced lucid dreamer, Chris, utilizes the sound of his favourite instrument, a flute, as a hint to become aware that he is in a dream. Choose a signal or cue for yourself and practice reacting to it on yourself hypnosis for lucid dreaming.
If an anomaly occurs in your dream, you can use it as a sign that you’re dreaming. As an example, experiencing your body is flying; dressing a bear; exploring Saturn at a convertible; or playfully swimming in a pool with sharks; could be great indicators that you’re having a dream.
The second skill of lucid dreaming is having the ability to recognize dream signs that allow you to know that you’re dreaming. One way to recognize your dream signals is to look closely at your previous dreams for themes or patterns, things that commonly re-occur on your dreams. As an example, do you have dream topics of performing activities like talking on the telephone to someone who has passed cleaning house, or arranging a course you will teach, or playing catch at a certain beach? Recognizing your dream signals can allow you to remember your dreams and could be a cue to ask yourself ‘am I dreaming? Practice asking yourself this question through the day to become more lucid in your wakeful condition and you will condition yourself to ask the identical question and become lucid in your dreams. By comparing your wakeful perceptions to those in dreams, you will start to notice distinctions, intrinsic to wakeful versus fantasy reality.
Sometimes dreamers wake up from a lucid dream.

The next is to spin your dream body to engage the mind in sparking rapid eye movement which could stretch a period of rapid eye movement sleep, the condition of sleep consciousness most directly associated with lucid dreaming.
