Take Control Of Your Dreams: Learn How To Lucid Dream (INFOGRAPHIC & VIDEO)

Did you ever want to control what happens in your dreams? Do you think that’s possible or just a fictitious idea just too crazy to believe? Well, this crazy idea might be not so crazy after all and controlling your dreams could be easier than you might think!

What is a lucid dream?

According to the site World of Lucid Dreaming, a lucid dream is:

Any dream during sleep in which you become aware that you’re dreaming.”

Being able to lucid dream can make it possible to:

  • Have more vivid dreams where everything seems more realistic.
  • Fulfill any fantasy you might have like flying, changing appearance, time travel, etc.
  • Overcome any personal problems like fears, phobias, past traumas, etc.
  • Get in touch with your inner creativity like creating music and more

To have a better understanding of lucid dreaming watch the video below, created by Asap SCIENCE, where they explain it with colorful and explicit illustrations. It makes it a little easier to understand since the concept is a bit abstract.

Is lucid dreaming scientifically proven?

I was reading somewhere that everything appears to be “scientifically proven” these days. So I am not saying that all of this is true, but it seems that there are several scientific studies corroborating the authenticity of lucid dreaming.

The researchers working on justifying the existence of lucid dreams have used brainwave, blood flow and eye movement data to confirm that at the time of lucid dreams, higher levels of consciousness are reached.

Lucid dreaming was first scientifically proven in 1975 by British parapsychologist Dr Keith Hearne through his ocular-signalling technique. However, this concept has been the subject of numerous scientific studies ever since.

The last one to date was in 2014 by Dr. Ursula Voss of Frankfurt University. She has found a way to induce artificial lucid and semi-lucid dreams in 77% of all cases.

How to control your dreams infographic

I know I showed you a video explaining the concept of lucid dreams, but I also found this infographic below and I couldn’t choose which one was the best. So I decided to present you both of them.

This infographic, created by BedroomWorld, demonstrates a lot of fascinating information about lucid dreams and the stages of sleep. You’ll find in it:

  • The stages of a sleep cycle
  • How to lucid dream
  • Reality check
  • Getting to dreamland
  • And more

I find this infographic to be the perfect complement to the video above to really understand the notions of lucid dreaming.

Over to you

What do you think of this theory? Do you believe it could be possible? Whether we, believe it or not, this phenomenon is beginning to be well known such as astral travels.

When we talk about paranormal phenomena like lucid dreams and astral travels, not everyone is on board, but in my opinion, these studies are still interesting. Either way, I think this would be really cool to be able to control what happens in your dreams. Don’t you?

  1. Wow Nataly, this is a very interesting infographic and video.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve had a dream. Or maybe I did but don’t remember it. 🙂

    I didn’t know such exercises existed for our lucid dreams.

    I’ve always been facinated with dreams. When my grandmother was alive I would tell her my dreams and she’d interpret them for me. Now I do that when my kids tell me about their dreams. They give me a look and all I say is “that’s what my grandmother said” LOL

    Thanks for sharing this with us! Hope you’re having a great week! Hope all everyone is doing well :).

    1. Hi Cori,

      Wow, it must have been great for you to have your grandmother interpret your dreams. And I think it’s wonderful that you share with your kids all your grandmother’s knowledge about dreams.

      I personally dream a lot and I often have very weird dreams. I didn’t know either that we could have lucid dreams and be able to learn how to do this.

      I am glad you liked it. At first, I was a little hesitant to write about this because I know that many people don’t believe this, but I found the concept of lucid dreaming so interesting that I decided to write it anyway.

      Hope you’re having a great week too! The hubs and I are doing better, thanks for asking. Take care, my friend! 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this post, Nataly! I’m a lucid dreamer. I can wake up and remember my dream, at least 1 or 2 of them. I’ve even been known to resume a dream the following night. Weird, right? I love being in my dream world. The past 2 nights have been about vampires. It’s always a battle between humans and vampires. 2 nights ago, the King of the Clan fell in love with me. 🙂 Last night, I was fighting them off with swords. Crazy I tell you, but I love my dreams as they always tell me something. Oh yeah, definitely been known for flying. I just flap my arms and up I go! 😉

    This is great so I’m going to bookmark it. Thanks girly!

    1. So glad you liked it! Like I said to Cori, I wasn’t sure if people would be interested in this since it’s a little out of the ordinary. Personally, I find this kind of stuff fascinating and that’s why I wanted to write about it.

      I am also able to lucid dream and remember my dreams. I just didn’t know it had a name and that you could learn to do it. I can resume a dream if I wake up during the night. Not the following night like you, though! 😉

      Thanks a lot for reading this and happy Hump Day, gf! 🙂

  3. Hi Nataly, this is such a cool theory and the infographic makes it easy to follow. I definitely have had lucid dreams. The moment I realize it’s only a dream is usually when I awaken. I keep a dream journal and there is definitely a pattern of events that recur. Also, recently i had a marvelous dream that I could fly. It was incredible. I’ve had that before a few times and the feeling of flying was amazing. Hope I don’t sound too weird here, LOL.

    1. Hi Lisa, I also like the idea of being able to control my dreams. And you’re right, the infographic helps us understand this theory a lot. I always wanted to know the feeling of flying, you’re really lucky to dream that! And no, you don’t sound weird at all. Not to me anyway! LOL! 😉

      Thanks for stopping by, Lisa and have a great Sunday! 🙂
