Experiencing vivid adventures while you sleep, or triggering lucid dreams? Actually, there are ways and techniques that can help influence your dreams! Before we delve deeper into influencing dreams, it’s good to know what dreams really are. While you may not have complete control over your dreams, there are techniques you can try to influence them.
Our dreams are a natural part of the sleep cycle and usually occur during REM sleep, which stands for Rapid Eye Movement. At this stage, your brain becomes more active and alive. Dreams can take different forms, ranging from realistic scenarios to absurd fantasies. By the way, you don’t necessarily have to be asleep to have vivid adventures! The fascinating substances in psychedelics can take you on an incredible journey into the depths of your own imagination, more on that in this article as well!

Techniques to influence your dreams
When it comes to influencing your dreams, one of the first steps is to keep a dream journal. By regularly writing down your dreams as soon as you wake up, you train yourself to better remember your dreams. This can help you notice patterns and themes in your dreams, making you more aware of what is going on in your subconscious.
Another technique you can try is to perform reality checks during the day. This involves asking yourself if you are dreaming while you are awake. By asking yourself this question regularly, you build a habit that you can also follow in your dreams. If you then ask the same question in your dream, you can become aware that you are dreaming and you can exercise more control.
One more commonly used technique is visualization and intention. Before you go to sleep, imagine what you want your dream to look like. Imagine vivid scenes, such as flying through the sky or exploring exotic locations. By mentally preparing yourself, you increase the likelihood that you will dream about what you would like to experience.
Live adventures while awake
From time to time, we all have those days when we are stuck in our routine. The same work, the same obligations and the same view. Psychedelics can help you escape that monotonous rut: when you start daydreaming with psychedelics, whole new worlds come to life.
Just imagine walking through an enchanted forest full of colors and shapes, while fairies dance around you and the trees talk to you. Everything becomes more intense and magical, allowing you to experience reality in a completely different way, and you don’t even have to sleep for it!
Psychedelics are psychoactive substances that alter your perception of reality.
They may produce visual hallucinations, changes in thought patterns and deeper levels of consciousness. Psychedelics such as psychedelic herbs and magic truffles allow you to open your mind to new ideas and perspectives, making daydreaming an unforgettable and completely unique experience.
If you allow yourself to daydream with these special substances, a flood of new ideas and inspiration will emerge.
Psychonauts have frequently reported becoming extraordinarily creative during their trips. When painting, writing or making music, psychedelics can help you discover new perspectives!
