Dream Incubation is one of the types of interactive dreaming we all can do. This is where you “plant an idea” into your conscious and subconscious before you fall asleep to achieve a desired outcome. There have been many studies that show this technique works over time.
It is believed that we all dream about 4-5 times a night. We remember about ˝ of our dreams due to distraction. Lying in bed for a few moments helps you to remember and keep your mind quiet. We have the capability of remembering far more of our dreams. Once you can grasp onto a feeling or an image it is likely to trigger more images.
Many people use this technique to solve problems of all types. Artist use it for inspiration. It can be used for business and romance.
People tend to limit their thinking during the day with fear. While dreaming the human mind can open freely and allow all possibilities.
How You Can Start
1. Set the intention that you will solve your problem, talk to deceased loved ones or what you intend to accomplish through your dream process.
2. Set a Dream Incubation statement: "I will dream and I will remember my dream."
3. Visualize an image of what you want. A writer may visualize a blank open book; an artist might visualize a blank canvas. You may picture your loved one.
4. Keep a notebook by your bed. Don’t get up immediately. You don’t want to lose your dream in morning distraction.
5. Write everything down. Remember, grasp onto any memory and that should open a flow of memory.
Dream Incubation takes time but has proven to really work. The possibilities are limitless as to what you can accomplish. Believe!
