Have you ever wished you could dream of the person you have a crush on? While some of the components of dreaming remain a mystery to scientists, dream control and lucid dreaming are considered to be the most effective ways to attempt to manipulate your dreams.
Keep a dream journal.
Whenever you wake up from sleep you should write the dream in the journal. This will help you recognize the typical patterns in your dreams.
You can also take note of recurring themes or objects in your dreams. These can serve as focal points in your dreams to help you become aware that you are dreaming.
You should keep a notepad or diary near your bed for easier access. This way, you don’t have to look for a place to write down your dreams and get distracted and forget parts of your dreams.
Notice the world around you.
One of the best ways to become conscious in dreams is to become hyper-aware of the conscious world. Ask yourself during the day if you are awake or dreaming. Notice how all of your senses react to the different things around you.
Find items from your daily life that are detailed and focused that you can use as comparisons for the landscape of your crush dreams. These details will be more blurry in dreams, which can help you distinguish between dreams and reality.
Before going to bed, make sure you are in a comfortable environment where you will not be disturbed. Lie down with your eyes closed and relax your body, letting all ambient sounds and smells fade away. Think about the fact that you are awake and trying to fall asleep. It will help you keep your mind aware, even when you fall asleep and start dreaming.
You may not be having a dream right away. You just have to keep looking for the signs of your dreams and recording your dreams. Eventually, you should be able to recognize your dreams and become clear-headed while living them.
You can be pulled out of your first two lucid dreams as soon as you realize it.
Think about them.
Before going to bed, take the time to think about the person you love. You can dream of the kind of scenery you would like to dream of, like a romantic beach walk or a fun date with dinner and a movie.
Just keep them rooted in your head, evoking the clearest mental picture you can imagine of them. This will help them to be more present in your head and to appear more realistic, which can affect their appearance in your dreams.
See a photo.
Now that you’ve thought about it for a while and established what you want to happen in the dream, you can consolidate the whole routine by looking at a photo of your crush. This will give you an even more accurate picture of them in your head when you fall asleep. It will also give you something to focus your mind on as you fall asleep.
