I’ve recently come up with a holistic training plan for myself that involves lucid dreaming. This plan started out as my training schedule for my long distance running training. I’ve since developed it to incorporate much more than just running. I was hoping to get some feedback from you, especially regarding the lucid dream induction phase.
The biggest focus of the plan is that each day has a specific chakra for that day. Monday is the 1st Root Chakra, Tuesday the 2nd, Wednesday the third and so on. I incorporate meditation and issues dealing with the day’s chakra into my runs, for example on Monday I try to run in the trails to feel connected to the earth. On Wednesday I do a hard track workout and focus on a very strong core and feeling the energy flow up my spine. I keep the chakra focuses in mind all day, and especially when I’m working out.
Here is where the lucid dreaming comes in. (I’ve come up with this method based on the typical LD literature as well as some topics from this board, I understand it not entirely original, and I am eternally grateful for those that have sparked ideas in me).
Every night I’m going to listen to a recording of myself reciting a lucid dream induction scenario. Each night is different and deals with the next days chakra focus. For example when I go to sleep Sunday night I will listen to a recording of myself saying I’m standing in a large field, gathering energy from the earth. I’m going to mention something that incorporates all senses -> I FEEL the grass under my feet, I SMELL the fresh air, I SEE trees, I HEAR birds etc. I have come up with an entire story, it is pretty basic, I start standing in a field gathering energy to my root chakra, then begin running as the energy moves up my spine. I’m hoping with some practice these scenes will become so familiar I will realize I’m dreaming and this will be a tremendous benefit to my practices in waking life.
This is a very broad outline, if anyone needs further specification let me know.
Any and all comments/advice would be appreciated. Anything you guys can think of to make this work.
Thanks and happy dreaming.
