Instant Lucid Dreams Review – Day 4

instant lucid dreamsInteresting content in the Instant Lucid Dreams course today. Apparently we have a part of our brain called the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex. This area of our brain is responsible for certain cognitive processes, such as comparing a current situation with past memories. This is an essential function in waking life that is absent in the dream world because this part of our brain is inactive during sleep. This explains why in waking life if you found yourself talking to your deceased grandmother in a grocery store you would most likely be confused or alarmed (unless your accustomed to talking to the dead), but in the dream world you might not think nothing of it.

Instant Lucid Dreams Review – Day 3

Instant Lucid Dreams Review – Day 1

instant lucid dreamsToday I’ve started Day 1 of the Instant Lucid Dreams program, in which the author, Nick Madge, guarantees you’ll have a lucid dream within 7 days if you follow his guide.

Day 1 involved reading the the appropriate section for this day in a PDF, listening to a MP3 visualization designed to assist you in letting go of old beliefs related to the difficulty of learning lucid dreaming (I really liked the metaphor of the stream running through the meadow), getting together your dream journal, and setting your alarm and intention to wake up every 90 minutes of your sleep cycle to record your dreams.
