Am I Awake Right Now?
One of many methods of entering the lucid dreaming state at will and experiencing these incredible possibilities is the method of stopping and questioning Am I awake right now? What sensations am I feeling right now actually give me this proof that I’m awake?
Challenge your reality at different stages of a day, different locations, different household chores we may be performing. These reality challenges are a great lucid dreaming capability method that can raise the chances of lucid induction exponentially.
Treat this as a numbers game, as we don’t expect results in day 1 or overnight to occur. Try these over a week to cover all bases, as we lower ourselves into deeper levels of sleep, all at very individual rates and changing patterns night after night.
Some nights will be easier than other nights as our levels of awareness vary and our emotions, alertness and imagination differ from night to night. We stop for a brief moment in our perceived waking lives and ask, is this the dreaming world? Is this waking world? Look for proof. Which of our five senses came first in proving this? If I am in a dream right now, what would this meal taste like, what does this morning health-cocktail taste like if I’m dreaming?
These are the Awareness Exercises and can only improve our day to day awareness of ourselves and of others around us. As byproducts we can further develop our people skills in empathy and being more in tune with those around us.
All these side gains we will experience on our sure road to lucid dreaming. We consciously connect so we can subconsciously connect higher and vice versa, we brighten our subconscious minds and so many byproducts enter our lives. All these day to day reality checks and consciousness-sharpeners will become easier and deeper inducing of our awareness will become our only nature.
The Breakthrough: this is the golden moment we have been working and waiting for. Spontaneously this point in time will be with us and it will be truly magical if this hasn’t been experienced before. It is to be sharpened and mastered. When we find ourselves in the lucid state, stop and take it in, ask ourselves where this world came from.
Can I create more? Can I talk to somebody? Can I look up at the sky in this dream state? What does it look like? Can I leave the ground and float? These are all obligatory lucid sensory exercises for training and purely also for fun but let’s not stop here. Over time we may want to explore our lucid state and start to push the envelope and create new worlds…
