What is lucid dreaming? Here's a Simple Explanation ...
In Eastern thought, cultivating the dreamer's ability to be aware that he or she is dreaming is central to both the Tibetan Buddhist practice of dream Yoga, and the ancient Indian Hindu practice of Yoga nidra. The cultivation of such awareness was common practice among early Buddhists.
Dream lucidity is the awareness that you are dreaming. This awareness can range from a faint recognition of the fact to a momentous broadening of perspective. Lucid dreams usually occur while a person is in the middle of a normal dream and suddenly realizes that they are dreaming. This is called a dream-initiated lucid dream. A wake-initiated lucid dream occurs when you go from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness. In either case, the dreams tend to be more bizarre and emotional than regular dreams. Most importantly, you will have at least some ability to control your "dream self" and the surrounding dream.
Keep a dream journal. Keep it close by your bed at night, and write down your dream immediately after waking, or the emotions and sensations you experience right when you wake up. This will train you to remember more of your dreams, which is important for lucid dreaming. Plus, there's not much point in controlling your dreams if you forget the experience before the morning.
Alternatively, keep a recording device by your bed.
You might remember more of your dream if you stay still for a few minutes concentrating on the memory before you start writing.
Repeat "I will be aware that I'm dreaming" each time you fall asleep. Each night as you fall asleep, repeat to yourself "I will know I'm dreaming" or a similar phrase until you drift out of consciousness. This technique is known as Mnemonic Induction to Lucid Dreaming, or MILD. Mnemonic induction just means "using memory aids," or in this case using a rote phrase to turn the awareness of your dreaming into an automatic habit.
Some people like to combine this step with a reality check by staring at their hands for a few minutes before they go to sleep.

Brainwave Mind Voyages arose from a thirst for experiential wisdom and a hunger for sharing mind-expanding tools with other like-minded people such as yourself. Shower the seeds of self-empowerment with some modern audio technology, and voila! ....N'Joy
Your brain operates much like a resonance chamber or a tuning fork. When you hold two similarly tuned tuning forks together and strike one of the them, the other will also vibrate at the same frequency. The vibrational rate or vibratory frequency determines the tone. Our brain produces waves of currents that flow throughout its neural pathways. The type of brainwave is defined by the frequency at which it is pulsing, and this particular rate of pulsation determines our respective state of mind at any given moment in time.
There are four common types of brainwave patterns, but due to the complexity of our brains there are often several patterns interacting at one time. It is the predominance of one particular brainwave frequency that determines our state of mind. For example, if you are in a beta state, there may be trace levels of alpha and theta but they would minimal compared to the dominating amount of beta present. All of these brainwave states have been scientifically studied and categorized by the subjective states that each range will produce. Below is a simple chart containing the four common types of brainwave frequencies along with their characteristic features and associated mental states. The frequencies are measures in hertz (Hz) which is roughly translated as beats per second or cycles per second.
BETA waves 13 to 30 Hz the fastest waves, most commonly found during our waking state, associated with outward awareness, engaged mind, arousal, actively perceiving and evaluating forms of data through the senses; also present with fear, anger, worry, hunger, and surprise.
ALPHA waves 7 to 13 Hz associated with non-drowsy but relaxed, tranquil state of consciousness, less engagement and arousal, pleasant inward awareness, body/mind integration, present during meditation and states of relaxation
THETA waves 3 to 7 Hz associated with increased recall, creativity, imagery and visualization , free-flowing thought, future planning, inspiration, drowsiness, present during dreaming and REM states
DELTA waves .1 to 3 Hz associated with deep dreamless sleep, deep trance state pituitary release of growth hormone, self-healing, present during deep levels of non-REM sleep.
Your brain is always producing electromagnetic brainwaves that have a measurable frequency and magnitude. The characteristics of your brainwaves at any given moment determines your mood and state of mind. The frequency range and magnitude identify whether you are aroused, alert, asleep or anywhere in between these states.
We are always expanding our knowledge of how our brainwaves can be harnessed to create peak states of consciousness. For example, the best moments of creativity, those Eureka! flashes, occur mostly when theta waves are predominant. The hypnogogic state verging between waking and sleeping is characterized by theta brainwave activity. This explains why we have such great ideas before falling asleep. It is noted in history books that this "border-zone" time period has been utilized by many scientists and other great thinkers who have had flashes of insight while experiencing this holistic state of mind.
Einstein came up with the theory of relativity in this state, and likewise, one of the Watson and Crick pair conceptualized the double helix of DNA in this highly visualistic mind state successfully cracking the illusive architecture of DNA. Time spent in this "border-zone" can be time very well spent. All this information about brainwaves is a preamble to the matter of entraining your brainwaves to specific frequencies.
You can now use the process of brainwave entrainment to tune your brainwaves to any brainwave range. You can experience theta, alpha, delta or even combinations of ranges using multi-layered frequencies that blend several brainwave ranges into one synergistic brainwave pattern like the Awakened Mind Brainwave Pattern. The breakthrough occurs when we use this principle of entrainment to synchronize our brainwaves to specific chosen frequencies. We can do this easily by using binaural beat audio technology and monophonic entrainment tones, as you will soon learn, but first some more background information.
THE TWO HEMISPHERES OF THE BRAIN
Our brains have a left and a right hemisphere. The left hemisphere is linear, logical, practical, and time orientated. The right hemisphere seems to be much more non-linear, abstract, creative, holistic, and non-logical. We tend to use one hemisphere at a time, or better said, we will favor particular hemispheres depending on what we are doing. An accountant probably uses less of his right hemisphere than an artist would during the course of his workday. If you are doing math you would be using more of your left side. If you are painting a picture, you would have more right hemispheric activity.
Obviously, it is not that simplistic because both hemispheres are constantly interacting and both can be in use at the same time. These hemispheres are connected by the corpus callosum. It serves as a conduit or a bridge between both sides. This bridge can literally be exercised and strengthened until it is physically larger and more capable of transmitting data, thoughts and feedback between hemispheres. The famous clairvoyant healer Edgar Cayce was found to have an unusually large corpus callosum, but could it be that everyone else simply has not developed this hemispheric bridge?
By merging both hemispheres and allowing them to work together we can increase our mental fitness and enhance our cognitive functioning in general. It is basically like having a faster computer processor capable of working at faster speeds. Increased integration creates better performance. By using brainwave entrainment technologies, you can increase your hemispheric synchronization. By simply listening to any BMV CD, your brain naturally synchronizes to balance hemispheric activity and adjusts brainwave activity to match the embedded brainwave carrier frequencies. This audio-induced hemispheric coherence produces an optimal state of holistic whole-brain synergy.
