      Dream incubation: easy?

      First of all, Dream Incubation (DI) is a way to influence/select what you

      will be dreaming about. Usually within 0-5 days from the incubation you

      will have a dream, related to the incubation (if you can recall it).

      there are various techniques used to incubate dreams, they produce very

      different results.



      I always thought that DI is a very hard method, and not worth the effort.

      However, I noticed that even a single thought can be reflected in a dream.

      (I always summon handguns in my dreams, so I decided to change it and

      summon an Uzi next time. For like 20 seconds I thought of it, then

      straightened my hand, imagining how an uzi will feel/look.

      Within 2 days, I had a nonlucid dream, where I had 2 uzis...)


      Is it a coincidence or a general law :/

      Can some people with good recall try to incubate the dream in a similar

      way and tell me if they had success?

      I did attempt to dream incubate about a week ago, I pictured a specific environment as vividly as I could for about 10 minutes while I was meditating. I dreamt that I was in that environment when I went to sleep. I can't, for the life of me, understand why I haven't exploited that method since

      my girlfriend says she can think about something she wants to dream about before she goes to bed and she just dreams it straight away. it sounds like an amazing ability, I can never do this.

      I think that dream incubation is a very straightforward and simple process. Being mentally clear yet and then merely pondering the desired dream are essentials. That's pretty much what the expert do, right? hehe.

      Oh ya, mentally imagining the desired dream or re-enacting past dreams as vividly as possible seems to improve the detail I collect in later dreams.

      my dreams always wander too fast to use dream incubation...if i do manage to make myself dream a particular something thru this method, i usually lose it/forget about it as fast as i got it...i think this process works better for those people who can remain on a subject for prolonged periods of time...

      What Ev said originally about the Uzi reminded me of one time when I was little. I was playing a game with my brother and we pretended to shoot fireballs and shape magic to destroy each other. Lo and behold, I had that ability in my dream that same night... It was kinda weird.

      Could never get this right... which annoys me, cos I consider myself to have pretty good visualisation skills.
      Might be the same problem as Werburn...

      From what I wrote down I have been able to decide where my dream would be, more or less anyway. My first lucid dream was a WILD and during the WILD I kept thinking about the dream i wanted to be in school. I pictured everything in my head, tried to imagine everything, all of the senses. I pictured it as vividly in my head as i could and soon enough i found my self fully lucid in school, you can imagine where it went from there.

      The other non-lucid dream that I created was basicly done the same way. I think that i was attemping WILD and pictured everything from the dream that i wanted. I did this untill falling asleep( unsuccesfull WILD) and soon enough i found my self in the dream i had pictured earlier. I wasn't lucid so it kind of went off from the imagined dream but it was basicly the same thing.

      By the way, I havn't been able to create any other dreams this way, that i remember anyway, and both times i successfully did it, it was during a REM period that i woke up during(WILD). So its probably easiest to think about it and imagine it during this period, because very soon after you fall asleep you will enter into the REM period, hopefully with your dream still in your sub concious mind, ready for you to dream.

      I can't do it all the time, but I do it semi-regularly, maybe once or twice a month or so. The funny part is that when I successfully incubate a dream, I know that I've done it before I fall asleep. It's like I have this weird feeling before I go to bed where my imagination is dialed up to 10. I can't reproduce this at will.

      Somtimes My HI (Hynogogic imigary)get very vivid and once the images beigin to manifest into more vivid images I can manipulate the scene into a dream which will incubate into an LD. It then takes no time at all to incubate a dream. People underestimate (HI).

      I tried something similar a few days ago, it's supposed to help you notice that you are dreaming. You wake up during the night, play a song, then sleep again. The memory of the song should be active and incubate a dream, which will make you lucid once you notice that.

      Hasn't work for me yet. I am trying it practically every day with different songs however.
