Increasing Dream Length

March 19, 2010

This is going to be a brief post; I hope you’ll tune in anyway.

One common problem with dreamers is that they will get overexcited and wake up in the middle of a pleasant dream. Sudden emotion interferes with the dreaming process, so the optimal solution would be to stay calm at all times… but this is obviously not easy, as dreaming can be exciting (especially when lucid!), and it’s not a foolproof solution as there are many other reasons for a dream to suddenly stop (including boredom, surprisingly).

Next time you wake up abruptly in the middle of a dream, visualize the end to which your dream was going and the desire you held with that. Act out the situation in your mind as long as you would like to, since the moment it ended, but as if it had never ended. This simple exercise will, before long, increase the length of your dreams and help you stay in the dream state despite any sudden excitements you will hopefully come across.

Happy dreaming,

Adriana D.
