Do you remember your dreams? Do you pay attention to them? Our dreams bring us messages as we sleep. There are themes in our dreams and a deeper meaning, if we take notice.
What if you could dream more vividly and remember your dreams? This is where it starts to get really exciting. And it all begins with an evening routine that promotes lucid dreaming.
Lucid dreaming is when we are aware of what is happening in our dream. When we really can delve deeply into the dream and bring back messages that support our everyday life.
Here are my top 10 tips for an evening routine that promotes vibrant dreaming:
- No caffeine after lunchtime
- Don’t drink alcohol or take any recreational drugs
- Switch off the news, TV, radio etc – anything that is just ‘NOISE’ and fills your mind with junk
- Read positive and beautiful affirmations that promote abundance as a way of life
- Eat dinner at least two hours before you go to bed, have a light snack before bed if hungry
- Don’t eat any spicy, rich or heavy food at dinner time – save this for your lunchtime meal
- Make sure you have a set bedtime routine where you follow the same steps every evening
- Wear comfortable clothes to bed
- Set your bed up in a way that faces nature or a natural environment – having a nature view through the window really changes your perspective
- Use relaxing music through headphones to set a scene for your night time dreaming
- BONUS TIP: Keep a notepad/pen by your bed with a fresh page open. Write out positive affirmations as you are going to sleep and winding down. It is amazing how much this sets the tone for your night time dreaming
