One of the fascinating things about dreams is that everything is possible to them. Their convoluted nature allows for an endless array of possibilities. One moment you’re walking on a tight rope, then next thing you know you are talking to a cat while the sky is falling above you. Dreams are bizarre, trippy, and intriguing in nature.
Fortunately, believe it or not, experts have finally verified a new technique to initiate lucid dreams. For those who don’t know, a lucid dream is a type of dream during which the person is aware of dreaming. During a lucid dream, the person dreaming, to some extent, has some controls over the dream.
Experts have finally discovered a way to control your dreams.
According to the reports, their trials managed to allow a surprising number of the participants to dream lucidly, and they even did not use any form of an external process like electrical stimulation. One of the processes they used is reality testing which involves the participants to check their state of awareness consistently in order to make sure that they’re awake.
Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD)
Another process is called Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD). MILD process includes set alarms for the participants in order to wake them up every five hours. During these waking moments, they had to recite “the next time I am dreaming, I will remember that I’m dreaming.”
The results were a bit underwhelming at first. However, when combined, the results were pretty impressive.
Dr. Denholm Aspy, a scientist from the University of Adelaide is currently toying with the idea of combining more techniques in order to increase the chance of success. As of now, some of the new methods require advanced equipment since a few of them are still a bit unpredictable in some regards.
According to Aspy’s reports in the journal Dreaming, the reality testing was a bit lacking in regards to its results. However, when they combined it with MILD, more than half of the participants managed to have lucid dreaming.
This breakthrough is fascinating. Right now, experts believe that lucid dreaming could be a powerful tool for trauma patients as well as other behavioral problems.
