      Lucid Day Dream Technique

      Let me tell you about something you can do that is very cool. Did you know you can activate the portion of your brain that creates dreams while your are still awake? I always called this a dream trance while studying dream yoga, but I like the term lucid day dream more. For those of you who do not know, you can learn to visualize most of your senses to a point where you can actually perceive the thing you are visualizing to some degree. Look through the Dream Yoga course and read about visualization skills and creating a sense of motion. When you have developed these skills you also enhance the portion of your brain that can create dream imagery. What you are wanting to do is sit comfortably and focus on some internal imagery you have gotten good at. One that works very well is feeling energy flow which you can learn in one of the lessons. For me I do kundalini which is a energy manipulation involving feeling energy move through you. It is possible to simply feel energy because you are good at visualization or if wanted expand this into actually controlling energy. I do not discuss kundalini openly in this class, but in terms of raw visualization I will feel energy course up my spine and then spread out into angel wings. I then feel them spread and slowly fan the air. Much simpler internal visualizations will work, so as soon as you can do any of the basic ones you can try this Lucid Day Dream technique.
      What you are going to do is use the lesson suppressing emerging thought to ignore the world around you. Basically keep your mind internal and not thinking about stuff that is external. You sit comfortably and start visualizing something like a triangle, which if you have practiced you should get some degree of mild imagery, or you do a tactile visualization such as trying to feel an imaginary hand move, or as stated above visualize energy flow. What you are doing is getting the brain to actually be interested in what it is experiencing when it looks internally. If you succeed at this stuff you will start to have almost no focus on your real body or surroundings.
      As you relax into this internal world of visualization you start to allow yourself to imagine something simple such as walking down a street. If you are advancing in your skills you should actually kind of feel as if you are in a dream and walking despite the limited visuals. When you have reached such a point you simply start to daydream. By daydream I mean allow your inner fanciful self to imagine things. Imagine you have walked down to the river perhaps. Imagine you see some birds. If you do this correctly visuals will start to form "in your minds eye." By this I mean much more than simply imagining but a clear step down from a dream in full REM. You can get quiet caught up in an internal fantasy where you do have dream like experiences such as feeling yourself flying and seeing vague images that add to the experience. The visuals, with practice can reach the level of simple animation. The tactile sense of action and motion can be fairly impressive, and if you go deep enough the day dream may even take on a life of its own creating random events for you to react to.
      This state can be as good as a lucid dream with the exception of the graphics being only about 20% of what a REM dream can create. You can use this state to learn dream control skills and in fact the very act of doing these Lucid Daydreams will increase your ability to use dream control with in a true lucid dream. You can in fact forget all about the world around you but in a sense you are still awake. You can stay upright for instance and if someone tries to get your attention you will hear them.

      I see that this is some sort of advanced daydreaming, but what about energy, do you a have separate thread for that?

      A pretty advanced subject for any one thread. I might start a DVA class separately for that. I will say that I consider all the stuff in this class to be good pre-requisites for that material though. There is a thread in this class that would serve as an intro to energy if you look down the list.

      Anybody is free to attempt it. I recommend reading the related lessons first, but I guess anyone could give it a go with no prior skills learned. It kind of is a culmination of a few skills, so at least reading the lessons is where I would start. It is worth it though and can be very entertaining and great for building WILD skills.

      I know that there are a number of members here who probably want to try it out but, for those who have poor visualization skills or Aphantasia, this would probably not be for them, right?

      I would only assume you have bad visualization skills if you honestly tried the stuff in earlier lessons for over three weeks and made no progress. I believe the premise of Dream Yoga is that through disciplined exercise you can build up all the needed skills and then start combining them. Skill earned through practice. I would say it is worth the effort considering it will improve most aspects of this hobby/art.

      Sivason, in your practice did you find any other uses for the above technique than to entertain oneself? Anything that is considered beyond.

      Aside from getting very good at LDing which can lead to astral, it is a state I used to see past lives, do remote viewing and putting my energy body into other regions. So yes, this state is also a tool to even more esoteric stuff.

      Are you missing some steps of the technique on purpose, because of the dva class for the above uses, in other words a demo version or this is the full version for all uses. What do you mean by that "putting my energy body into other regions", what region mean for you?

      Here, in this form, it is only addressing Lucid Day Dream. It is a base state of being where the outside world is not a large part of your awareness and even thought can be suppressed by focusing on visualizations/ energy. In that state esoteric things are easier and energy is not divided as much (between that and out side world). Other uses would still get to the state of decreased outward perception (a state closer to sleep). By other regions I mean if I wish to affect things a great distance from me. One approach could be to expand the energy body to encompass thousands of miles, but then it would be very diffuse. Instead you can remove awareness of your current state and focus on the region you are attempting to affect. Say I want to travel to Hawaii. Many effects such as weather control should be started days before travel as weather responds to large things that take days such as pressure fronts. As there is no distance between any two points I can move most my energy to that region to start the process. While their I will want wonderful random chance to cause exciting or amazing things to occur during the trip. That also should be started days before travel. This is really much more advanced stuff and off-topic for the thread but I don't mind a little sharing.

      I see that we are getting totally off topic, so any other energy related questions I will ask them through PM!

      Great thread so far and the energy stuff is also quite interesting. May be more suitable for expansion in another thread if appropriate to share for more people to learn .

      Sivason, I wonder if you also use such visualization in order to heal yourself or others if needed? Or let’s say to build a certain mood?

      You could certainly get into a deep state of visualization and use the day dream to see your intended goal such as yourself in a state of healing and then you fully healed. If you do this while focusing energy into the damaged area (including mental health) it should be helpful.
