Have you ever been aware you’re dreaming? Perhaps even controlled what happened in your dreams? If so, you may be a lucid dreamer.

Researchers have proven that lucid dreamers are aware while dreaming. It could affect your sleep—and ultimately, your health.

In part 6 of our neuroscience expert series with Ben Rein, a neuroscientist at Stanford University and a social media science communicator, we learned about these lucid dreamers. Rein tells Pop Mech video producer Ken Kawada that early research on them has revealed some compelling data.

The idea of controlling your dreams is definitely enticing, Rein says in the video (above). “Because who wouldn’t want to be existing fully conscious in a world where you can control everything and you can fly and do whatever you want? The most common way I believe that people achieve a lucid dream is they get in the habit of asking themselves,‘Am I dreaming? Like right now? Am I dreaming?’”

Most of the time, the answer will be no, because you’re asking yourself that question while awake. But if you get into the habit of asking yourself if you’re dreaming, then eventually, you might ask yourself while you’re in a dream. As a consequence, Rein says, “then you realize, wait a minute, I am dreaming, and then a lucid dream ensues.” To be fair, this method is a bit speculative, and we don’t really know it works.

What we do know is that lucid dreaming can be detrimental to sleep quality. Because it’s a conscious process, your brain is not truly resting during a lucid dream. “So it could be detrimental to the therapeutic properties of REM [rapid eye movement during dreaming that’s crucial to a good night’s sleep], the healing properties, the restorative properties,” Rein warns. Very little research has been done so far on the effects of lucid dreaming on sleep and health. Scientists don’t know exactly what’s going on in the brain—at least, not yet.

However, a study published in Current Biology last year made some headway. Four separate research groups across the world examined people who were good lucid dreamers. They replicated the same setup, hooking up the participants to an electroencephalogram machine (EEG) to measure brain activity. They also hooked them up to a device that measured eye movements. The researchers asked them to move their eyes back and forth three times once they were in a state of lucid dreaming. And the participants responded positively, which was confirmed via the EEG signals from the brain. “This person actually was in REM sleep, and their eyes moved back and forth three times to say, hey, you know, I’m here. What do you want me to do now?” Rein says.
(That just means that they were able to use their brain while in REM because they were practiced a Lucid Dreaming.  It does not prove anything about whether that ruined the natural benefits of that particular sleep period. Nor does it prove whether or not lucid dreaming is detrimental in other ways.)

Researchers then asked the sleepers a simple math question, and the dreamers moved their eyes back and forth the correct number of times to signify the answer. “It’s a step in the direction of us now being able to study lucid dreams from the inside and actually ask a person a question while they’re in the middle of a lucid dream,” Rein says.  This is VERY DANGEROUS!  Those participating in the experiments are allowing someone outside get into their mind and affect their subconscious.

While this study doesn’t yet explain the full neurobiology of lucid dreaming, it helps crack open a window to understanding what a lucid dreamer is experiencing. In particular, pairing sleepers’ answers to questions during lucid dreaming with their brains’ EEG signals starts painting a picture of what the brain is doing, Rein explains. “In lucid dreaming, I think, you know, the big question off the bat is, is the brain activity signature of someone in a lucid dream identical to someone in a non-lucid dream? And I think understanding that would would start to get at that warning that I gave before, is it harming the properties of REM sleep?”

Aside from the absolute fascination of being both conscious and dreaming simultaneously, the most important practical concern, says Rein, is whether this contradictory state is impairing the lucid dreamer’s quality of sleep. He hopes to see more research that can answer this question.  Typical scientist…so let’s just continue to mess with our subjects/victims and see what we can do to them.

In the following articles you will see that those who practice lucid dreaming recognize that is a spiritual exercise.  But, not the kind of spirituality you want to develop!!

Nov 18, 2022 Lucid dreaming can help you harness your dreams. It can empower the healing forces of your subconscious mind and the spiritual connection is the most captivating aspect of it. The connection between lucid dreaming and spirituality cannot be ignored. With proper guidance in lucid dreaming, you can get in touch with your spiritual sideand become a more centered person..
Buddhist monks believe that spirituality is the essence of lucid learning. Lucid dreaming has the capability of merging the two worlds. It is a bridge between both parts of your brain that helps you connect to something much greater than your actual life.
Empty promises and lies.  That is all the enemy has to offer.  If a deeper spiritual life is really what you are seeking this is not the place you want to find it.  The spirits you will connect to using these methods are EVIL SPIRITS.  They come as spirits of light to deceive you. The only one that can bring you to spiritual truth and true fulfillment is GOD.  He CREATED YOU with purpose and HE is the ONE who will give you the desires of your heart, if you choose HIM.
Aug 14, 2022 It takes time, perhaps a lifetime, to balance self-control with the dream’s own energy. I am by no means as master of this, even after 20 years of lucid dreaming. Lucidity is flighty by nature. What all lucid dreaming spiritual practices have in common is that no matter how high they fly, they touch the ground of compassion.
The percentage of lucid dreamers may be greater in various cultures and groups who practice spiritual traditions such as shamanism – a form of American Indian Medicine, Taoism, Buddhism, Tibetan dream yoga and specific disciplines aimed at developing the ‘witnessing consciousness’ of enlightenment.
(The spirits that they want to connect you with are the spirits of the Fallen Angels and their progeny.  Those are the gods and goddess of ANCIENT Relgions/Paganism.  Spirituality of this nature will only lead you to HELL.)
The topmost spiritual benefits of lucid dreaming are learning the state you are in actuality. Mastering the lucid dreaming helps a person to understand that he is dreaming and whatever is happening is not true. In other words, we could say that he could decipher the hidden codes of dreams and go to an awakened state.
Spiritual Impact Of Lucid Dreaming The most important spiritual impact of lucid dreaming that every person who seeks spirituality stresses upon is how to be present. Living in the moment is all what spirituality is about. Being present and aware has numerous advantages where people can identify and observe many incidents.
(That is the focus of EASTERN RELIGON.  PAGAN RELIGION, not the true Worship of the Creator God. One cannot connect to GOD via any contrivance.  The only way to get to GOD is through the Blood of Jesus Christ.  Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, THAT is what we are seeking… To return to EDEN, to walk with GOD.  ANYONE can do that, just by receiving the free gift of salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.)
Ominously enough, the US military has done extensive research into remote viewing, which is the application of deep imagination, trance or dreams to discover information about a place, person or event. Shamans call this technique soul-flight, and it’s also known as out-of-body experience and astral travel.

 Altered States of Consciousness: 7 Perception Doors

Why bother with altered states of consciousness?

Aldous Huxley famously said – – “Our brain is a reducing valve”. That is, our brain acts as a reducing agent for the information that the world presents  to our senses. This especially seems to be the case as we grow older. Remember how wondrous and beautiful the world seemed when you were a child?

Now Aldous Huxley’s quote was in the context of his experience with the use of psychedelics and how it expands the mind to more sensory data than usual, and recent research seems to be confirming it. However, it is my contention that psychedelics isn’t the only door to perception other than our normal waking state of consciousness that could be used for strong, potent experiences; although psychedelics is the only (one) that doesn’t require prior mastery — (you) just consume it. 

We seem to have 7 other tools at our disposal to access states (of consciousness) and pieces of information both in the subjective and objective world, which would otherwise be filtered out from our perception in our normal, waking state of consciousness. 
(Yes, filtered from our perception by the mercy and grace of GOD.  There are many things in the spirit realm that are not for humans to see for our own protection.)

I’d like to submit here, that every human being must master, or at the very least, make use of these 7 tools to have a complete experience of being human.  (That is a LIE straight out of the pits of HELL!)

Mastering use of these 7 tools is a sure way to help us navigate our own psychocosm and inner worlds to its fullest. But not only that, mastering it will also help us perceive our objective world at a more finer detail, if not at the time of perceiving (as in the case of psychedelics), but at least at a later date.
(REMEMBER the person writing this article is a servant of the devil and only able to deceive.  Altered States of Consciousness opens you up to demonic influences and even demon possession. People who participate in these things cannot see or know TRUTH.)

The best part about tackling all of them at once is that working with one will almost always help with treading the other paths easier. For example, instead of only working with psychedelics because they are potent and “quick” will not be nearly as rewarding and useful as knowing the terrain of your own psychocosm with other methods of inducing altered states of consciousness.

I am not convinced that Psychocosm is even a word.  I could not find it anywhere except in New Age and Magic articles.  

Mastering the Basics of Magick – Jeandre Gerber | Storyteller …
The “Psychocosmwhich is a “mental map” of the world around you. One of the key principles that any magickian needs to understand is that “There is NO DIFFERENCE between what happens in your mind and what happens outside of your mind.”. We are subjected to the illusion of “There and Here” when in reality “Here is There and There is Here” simultaneously.
Blurred Lines, that is what they are trying to create in you.  Do you remember the quote earlier in this post where the man saidMy daytime experience became increasingly dream-like”?  As you “practice” this lucid dreaming your mind begins to struggle to keep a sense of what is a dream and what is not.  Soon you will not be able to distinguish imagination from reality.  They keep telling you this stuff will help you gain control…but the truth is each time you practice it you are surrendering control to demonic spirits.

The following article is the biggest bunch of NEW AGE hooey I have ever read.  What follows is just a small piece but enough to give you an idea of the garbage they are selling.

Mind in Universe, Universe in Mind
Nov 13, 2019

As a psychocosm, with the universe and self united as a whole, there may be a relative, partially subjective as well as a partially objective feedback system from the minds place within the universe and back from the universe itself, as an open, ever-changing system around where the two can evolve. This open system of where the mind and universe correlate may take on the form of knowing or remembrance of where is that we belong. Knowing that we have a much larger place and home to call our own, we have some control over matters that may seem at first to be out of our own hands. The ability to learn and adapt to constantly changing worlds is one of our most sustaining abilities. Despite many major influences and powers that may go on, we may always be able to change out outlook and perspective of where it is we are. 

Even when it comes to meditation, which is of course the holy grail and the elixir to achieving the ultimate state of consciousness (union with the universe), it can be easier to have yourself to let go, drop your mind and meditate if you have experience working with the other 6 methods in the first place. The goal of Hatha yoga, for example could be seen as a rough example where sense withdrawal comes into play.

Hatha yoga has eight limbs (Ashtanga) where the third limb is Asana (physical postures), fourth limb is Pranayama (breath work) fifth limb is Prathyahara (sense withdrawal), followed by Dharana (concentration) and Dhyana (Meditation) Each limb is mastered before tackling the next.

Another example would be the Tibetan dream yoga or Milam.

Therefore, you might want to work towards unlocking more than one one door of perception at a time, to achieve faster results with each door of perception! (Each door/gate of deception?)


Lucid Dreaming

‌Lucid Dreaming


Lucid Dreaming is the conscious form of dreaming. That is, you are aware, inside the dream, that you are dreaming.

It is perhaps one of the more easier form of altered state of consciousness that you can experience, and you may already have experience with sleep paralysis, lucid dreaming and lucid dreaming induced out of body like experiences. However, it is a skill that definitely will take some time to master and experience reliably and repeatedly, and the techniques for mastering it can be various and deep.

Once you have reached a certain level of control within the dream, you will enjoy the benefits of exploring vast landscapes within which all five of your senses participate. Imagine for example, exploring your mind’s version of the Amazonian jungle while hearing the birds, feeling the trees, smelling the flowers and tasting the fruits. The limits are endless. (VAIN IMAGINATIONS!!  They are entrapping you! YOUR FIVE SENSES are gateways to your spirit that DEMONS want to get through.  The bible warns us.

The five senses; taste, touch, smell, hearing, and seeing, all report to the carnal mind – which is the enemy of God. These senses are what Satan uses to tempt us! The lust of the flesh includes tasting, touching, smelling, and hearing. The lust of the eyes is seeing.

The Lust of the Flesh, the Lust of the Eyes, and the Pride of Life

For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world (1 John 2:16).

We live in a world saturated with sin; “the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John 5:19). The wicked one uses every possible means for his “fiery darts” (Ephesians 6:16) to burn the Christian mind. The apostle John warned against the dangers of the spiritual battlefield—the world. In his first epistle (2:16), he divided worldly seductions into three categories:

  1. The lust of the flesh is everything that appeals to carnal and physical appetite. Although natural body desires are not inherently evil (e.g., the need for food, drink, and sexual fulfillment), the devil can use these licit desires (licit within their own limits) to enslave man (cf. 1 Corinthians 6:12). In this category of temptation, Satan uses internal licit desires to produce illicit carnal passions (e.g., gluttony, fornication). The Israelites succumbed under this type of sin when “[t]he people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play” (1 Corinthians 10:7; cf. Exodus 32:6). The devil tried to tempt Jesus by the lust of the flesh when he urged him to turn stones into bread (Matthew 4:3).
  2. The lust of the eyes is everything that appeals to the eye’s insatiable demands (Ecclesiastes 1:8). In this category of temptation, Satan uses external attraction (whether inherently good, as a desire for a house or a car, or inherently bad, as a desire for a neighbor’s wife) to produce covetousness. Eve (Genesis 3:6), and Achan (Joshua 7:21) succumbed to this type of sin when they coveted what was prohibited. The devil tried to tempt Jesus by the lust of the eyes when he “showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, ‘All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me’” (Matthew 4:8-9).
  3. The pride of life is everything that appeals to haughtiness, arrogance, and pride. In this category of temptation, Satan uses contemplation of personal achievement, e.g., popularity, academic success (or spiritual enlightenment), to produce an anarchical self-sufficient attitude. When a person falls prey to the pride of life, there is not longer a battle against the flesh; the wicked one has won the sensual and intellectual battle. The Israelites succumbed to this type of sin when they “acted proudly, hardened their necks, and did not heed [God’s] commandments” (Nehemiah 9:16). The devil tried to tempt Jesus by the pride of life when he “took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple”, and urged Him to defy God (Matthew 4:5-7).

While we deal daily with this world’s attractions, let us remember that “the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17).

Lucid dreaming is not simply limited to such things, either. As bizarre as it may sound, it can be a doorway to a world unknown to even your subconscious, beyond a point.

Similar experiences are usually only accessible to people who take high doses of psychedelics, get into a state of deep meditation, hypnosis and other forms of accessing altered states of consciousness. Some call it a form of lucid dreaming induced out of body experience. Whatever it may be, it is a skill that requires a lot of practice and mastery to replicate reliably. The goal of Tibetan Dream Yoga or Milam for example appears to be this very thing.

Now, folks use your cognitive thinking.  Neither Satanists, Magicians, New Agers, Scientists, Researchers or Medical Doctors can tell you what this stuff is or how it works.  They don’t have a clue.  Just like no one can tell us what AI is or how it works.  WHY??? BECAUSE IT IS ALL DEMONIC.  Spiritual DARKNESS that we cannot possibly understand.  THAT IS WHY!spacer



Cultivate Honduras
There is such a thing as Christian meditation (thinking on the Word of GOD), which is good, but there is also meditation that amounts to a blending of Eastern religion into Christianity, which is of course not good. Before you try something, you need to be sure what it is you’re getting into. I would caution you against seeking these things out on your own. Ask the Lord about them – see if he will provide you with a mentor or a community to help you in your search for these deeper things and keep you safe from what amounts to playing with fire..Our motivations for spiritual seeking must be to know God and hear his voice so that we can obey him and spread his kingdom.
This may not be the sort of thing that Christian Traditions/denominations from the more liberal end of the spectrum will teach on one way or the other; but for those of a more fundamentalist hue, it’s the kind of thing that is likely to send up a red flag and here’s why:

While there is no explicit prohibition in the scripture against lucid dreaming, an inference can be drawn that the related practice of controlled dreaming is not beneficial:

Some dreams are evidently a gift from God and should be received by faith after the exercise of appropriate discernment. If on the other hand, there is an attempt to control this as it’s happening, the lucid dreamer could be engaged in a form of Simony:

Acts 8 (NIV)

18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money 19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” 20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. 22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. 23 For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”

Simon wanted ‘control’ of the gift of the Holy Spiritthis attitude revealed an underlying lack of repentance and bondage to sin. Wanting to control a dream given by God would be an attempt to pervert the gift of God similar to the way of Balaam.

One may argue thatWell I would only try to do this with my own dreams”, but this would require you to despise receiving dreams from God as it’s impossible to exercise the required discernment while you’re asleep.

Dream control has some commonalities with divination and witchcraft as they all seek to exert control over circumstances through so-called ‘spiritual’ practices. It is therefore a likely path towards demonisation.

…do not give the devil a foothold (Ephesians 4:27 NIV)

UPDATE: Added 12/23/22

These practices of Lucid Dreaming, Out of Body Experiences, Binaural Beats, Meditation, etc… this is where you get the crazy idiots who buy the lie that we are living in a simulation.

Though I know that AI is working like crazy to change our environment and the way that we perceive things.  We MUST holdfast to TRUTH and REALITY.  Don’t let them take your minds CAPTIVE!!
