Lucid Dreaming

Lay down and go to sleep (this works best if you are extremely tired). Lay on your back with your arms at your sides and close your eyes. Remain perfectly still! You must also stay awake. Your brain will begin to send signals to your body to see if you are ready to sleep. These signals include some of the following - getting an itch, changing your body’s position, wanting to blink or move your eyeballs (remember, your eyes should be closed). You MUST ignore all of these impulses. After about 20-30 minutes, you will feel a weight on your chest; you may even hear weird noises. You are now in Sleep Paralysis. If you open your eyes, you will begin to hallucinate (dream with your eyes open) and you will not be able to move your body. Your body has fallen completely asleep. Now that you are aware you are dreaming, you can shut your eyes and begin to be lost in your dream immediately. You will be fully aware of what it is you are dreaming and can now (with some practice) control your dreams.
