      Sensory Awareness Meditations: They are any mental practices were you try to stop the mind form thinking about things that are not taking place in the present moment, and instead truly feel and experience in various senses. By closing your eyes and paying close attention, you come to realize that your brain has been ignoring most of the world around you. The benefit to LDing is that you become keenly aware of how being awake truly feels, and you will then notice when any subtle thing is not right in a dream, thus increasing the effect of a reality check. Also, when in an LD you will have increased the amount of detail your brain can process, which leads to more vivid and life like dreams.

      Visualization Meditations: This type of mental exercise involves developing the portion of your brain that is used in reproducing a real life sense in a dream or in meditation. The most straight forward type is called a guided meditation. In these a narrator describes a basic scene and helps you relax and imagine the scene. This is very effective at training the imagination and can lead to truly seeing the scenes described. More advanced visualization meditations involve learning to actively harness the ability to recreate sensory stimuli by intent. Visualization meditations are very useful in LDing as a means of mastering dream control and changing the scene into one of your creation. They are also very useful in WILD attempts, as visualizing can take the place of thinking, to keep your mind aware, but not over stimulate your waking mind.

      Mental Discipline Meditations: In this type of meditation you learn to keep the mind from wandering. The type of discipline worked on can vary from trying to only think about a single subject or word, to trying to avoid thinking at all. The benefit to LDing is the ability to eliminate the random aspects of your dream, such as annoying DCs and events you did not consciously choose to create. It is also very important in WILD attempts, as you will be able to stay aware, but avoid thinking about the stresses of your daily life.
