So before I tell you guys how to meditate let’s go over some of the benefits meditation reduces stress and many studies show that it improves your mental health meditation also enhances your self awareness Causing you to develop a stronger understanding of yourself higher self. Awareness is also really important if you’re trying to lucid dream Meditation will also lengthen your attention span, which means that you’ll get bored less often Meditation is known to help you fight addictions control pain decrease your blood pressure and Improve your sleep and speaking of sleep Meditation will boost your dream recall which means that you’ll be able to remember your dreams Easier and it will also strengthen your ability to control things inside of dreams Which is really important if you’re serious about lucid dreaming something that I find really cool about meditation Is that you can do it anywhere and you don’t need any equipment to get started? There are many different ways to meditate you can lie down. You can sit on the floor or on your bed You can even hang upside down Well, maybe not that but you get the point it’s really just about what feels comfortable to you for lucid dreaming the best Time to meditate is right before you go to sleep. So once you’re comfortable and once you’ve gotten rid of every distraction Sit upright on your bed and close your eyes now You may notice that I’m telling you to sit upright and the reason for that is because if you lie down There’s a greater risk of accidentally falling asleep If you think that you can handle it, then it’s completely fine to do this lying down But again for beginners, I recommend sitting upright as the goal is to stay both relaxed and alert Falling asleep isn’t always a bad thing if your goal is to achieve a lucid dream But it’s better to finish the meditation and then go to sleep because the longer you meditate the better now, you may be wondering Can I listen to music while meditating? The truth is music can be distracting and I recommend trying this meditation routine Without listening to anything, but if you are going to listen to something make sure that it’s very subtle for example, you can listen to nature sounds or Waves on the beach this can help later on in the meditation with visualizing things Although it’s still a good practice to learn how to meditate without music because it might not always be available Okay, so now it’s time to meditate for lucid dreaming. There are two main types of meditation concentration and mindfulness Concentration is when you listen to a voice Visualize the dream that you want to have or just spend time focusing your mind on a specific thing Mindfulness is when you clear away all of your thoughts and just sit there in. Peace Both types of meditation are great for lucid dreaming and we are going to use both of them in the following Meditation routine so get in your position become as comfortable as possible and then do the following One close your eyes and focus on your breathing Focus all your awareness on the breath going in and out of your lungs keep it natural and just notice how it feels if your mind wanders off and you think about other things just Bring your focus back to your breathing. It may take a while to get used to pushing thoughts away But over time you will get better If you catch yourself feeling bored Then you’re probably waiting for the meditation to be over rather than actively engaging with it Steer your focus back to the breathing and the single goal of not thinking about anything else Do this for five to ten minutes? But don’t actually keep track of time just relax and move on to the next step when you feel ready to Now you want to concentrate all of your focus on visualizing something a good Visualization for lucid dreaming is a natural setting like a beech forest or garden Which will create a relaxing stress-free environment? For a few minutes focus on all of your senses except sight so for example if the place that you’re imagining is a beach then Focus on the sound of the waves in the ocean and the feeling of a cool breeze on your face when you feel ready Open your imaginary eyes and look around you can even imagine yourself standing up and walking through the environment that you created Spend as much time as you want exploring your surroundings It should feel like you teleported to a new place and that you’re not in your bed at all And then when you’re done finish your meditation by opening your eyes for real The cool thing about this second stage is that if you try this in the middle of the night There’s a chance that your body will fall asleep physically and you will enter a lucid dream directly Simply by becoming immersed in your new surroundings. This can be difficult and you shouldn’t force it to happen but if you do suddenly pop into a lucid dream while meditating at Least you’ll understand why if you do become lucid It’s important to know how to control things in the dream so that you can have much fun as you can I made a video all about how to control lucid dreams and I recommend watching it if you’re serious about lucid dreaming So that the next time it happens to you, you’ll know exactly what to do, but that’s about it for today’s video I hope you learned something new about meditation This is such a great way to achieve amazing lucid dreams and if you haven’t tried it before I definitely Recommend giving it a shot If you want weekly videos about lucid dreaming and things related to it then hit that subscribe button and turnout Notifications so that you know when new videos come out.
