3 control your Dreams
Andrew Smiley, creator of the Aurora lucid dreaming headset, helps you count sheep 1/ Choose your dream signs. Short, unique, memorable sounds coupled with slow pulsing light tend to work best for inducing lucid dreams.
2/ Wear the Aurora (US$ 199, iwinks.org). As you fall asleep and pass through sleep stages, the Aurora will monitor your brainwaves and determine the ideal time to present your dream signs.
3/ Recognize dream signs. Sometimes they become incorporated into the dream. The sky might begin to pulsate with a strange colour.
4/ Become lucid. This doesn’t necessarily mean complete dream control. Beginners should focus on remaining aware of the dream for as long as possible, then begin pushing their imagination.
5/ After waking concentrate on recalling as much as possible. Log what you remember in the Aurora app, and it will adjust settings for the next night.
