You have probably heard of Yoga, you probably think of flowing movements that balance your mind, body and so on. Yes indeed there is dream yoga (sleep meditation) this form of yoga belongs to one of the six subtypes of yoga, as described by the Tibetan Guru Marpa.
The old way of practicing dream yoga is still carried out by monks today. Dream yoga consists of six phases.
The monks used the sleep time to make contact with the higher, deceased loved ones, the soul, the base and ancestors and / or wise older and inspiration predecessors.
The art of dream yoga (sleep meditation) is to make good use of your "Sleep Time". You can think mindfull, learn, study, grow, develop, find balance, calmness and get to know yourself without crossing your limits. The Tibetans believe in the "sleep of ignorance", a state of sleep in which there is no consciousness.
By entering a clear state, you are enabled to grow and develop as a person, your soul, your base and at your core. There is more to this deepening thought. In addition to growth and development, a connection is made with your dream world and how this is shaped - How would your dream life unfold ?.
By learning to look through the illusions and shadows of your dreams you can shape and develop understanding on the awake world (waking life); through which we can put life in a new light and see. In other words, by becoming aware of your dreams, you are able to see the awake life differently and, above all, to interpret it differently (awareness of the fact that ...) The nice thing about dream yoga is that you can do it lying down, you can fall asleep and you can get to know yourself and discover yourself from your deepest core.
The old Tibetan Buddhist exercise 1 (7 steps) is there to awaken your lucid dreams.
To meditate, communicate with your ancestors, the higher, deceased loved ones, the soul, the basis and ancestors and / or wise older and inspiration predecessors. Become Clear and that means the following: Being consciously experienced between dreams and waking life Lucide Dreams !. It is relaxation through the focus of consciousness, focused on balancing your energy and current that arises - the in-between situation that becomes clear, insightful and tangible.
You can try this exercise in a sitting meditation posture, but you can also lie down and (even fall asleep) because that's what it's all about - letting go of control and inner boundaries. As human beings we value products "we have attached a feeling to it, this means it to me and so on", learning to let go of this piece is the first step to initiation, spiritual awareness; the highest spiritual knowledge and insights that you can experience as a soul.
The 7-step exercise was created by Dreams & Visions and is therefore not original from Tibetan Guru Marpa, but accessible to us as Western people.
Make the firm decision before you go to sleep to stay conscious during your dreams, keep this image and feeling well until the last minutes before going to sleep, focus on the subject you want to dream about or want to see.
Provide a quiet sleeping environment where you are completely at ease and relax yourself, taking care to ensure that you do not have a cell phone or other steam device in your area for example. This causes interference during your sleep and your dream status.
Take the time to increase your skills such as meditating, visualizing and daydreaming during the day. Try to focus on awareness, the third eye and seeing images, feelings, stimuli, sound etc.
Remember again and again that it is an image, a dream, a visual response from your soul (your subconscious). A dream, visual answer in which everything is possible and in which there are no limits or limitations. If you let go, let go of control and let everything flow, it is very possible that your dream will become lucid.
The most important step: You must be completely fearless about any dream image that appears to you. These can be fun, crazy images; but also images that have to do with soul lessons and always come from your own mind - for this you can use the dream dictionary to explain it! You are the author of the script, you decide where you go and how it forms. You can see yourself as a king or king on the throne of your own world - the more you are yourself in the night, the more conscious you are during the day. The more you grow and develop spiritually.
Write down your dream immediately after you wake up; so that you can understand your dream state. It is important for you to know that everything has an underlying message. That which you experience during the day can affect your dream state; it is basically the same but also has a symbolic meaning or meaning with a spiritual underlying message. So put everything in one go and explain it at ease. You can find consciousness by exposing yourself and giving yourself the opportunity to grow and develop - to let your soul speak.
Also focus on what you want to dream about during the day. Feel, think, see, hear, smell and taste but above all experience from your soul what it is like to dream about this. Let your pure self speak and give your soul the opportunity to quietly learn to communicate with your ego-brain. Daydreaming helps with this, meditating, visualizing and making great strides towards lucid dreaming, not to mention they strengthen the bond between your soul and your brain. By focusing your entire day on this topic, you increase the chance that you will dream lucidly about this topic.
Practice a lot and try and yes we can do it all, the keeper wins!
The old Tibetan Buddhist exercise 2 is there to overcome all the fears of your dreams.
Teach yourself that nothing in your dream can hurt you. That you have control over how the dream goes and / or how it ends. A Tibetan Buddhist example of this is putting out a fire with your hands so that you become aware of the fact (prove yourself) that there is no reason to experience danger and pain. You learn that there is no difference between the dream, sleep status and your waking life.
It's just how you look, it's just what you feel. In other words you learn that dreams are just as realistic as your waking life. Visualization and meditation is a major learning experience.

The ancient Tibetan Buddhist exercise 3 is a meditation to make you aware that your dream world and your waking world are equal.
You become aware of the fact that life is just as realistic and / or illusionary as your dreams - this is because nothing is fixed, carved in stone. There is no such thing as this must be - the journey is not described the way you get there and / or what you encounter in life and / or in your dreams. Or you write the manuscript, you write your dream diary yourself, you decide how it develops. Visualization and meditation is a major learning experience.

The old Tibetan Buddhist exercise 4 is awareness of the fact that objects in your dream world have no content.
Now that you are aware of this, you can take steps to manipulate and control things, manage them, adjust them and adjust them to your own preferences. Start with small things such as a light feather or lighting a candle in your dream. Imagine you are dreaming that you are shopping, you are buying something but in reality this item that you have purchased has no content; it has no value, it is a feeling that you have created. It only reflects your feeling that you have chosen humanly - "the value that you have given it as a person". Visualization and meditation is a major learning experience.
