Lucid Dreaming and Meditation

  • “Conscious awareness of imagery is vitally important during wakefulness, meditation, & dreaming. Visualization meditations, in which you are focusing not on a stark, quiet environment, but focusing on the breath while you use your imagination to envision a happy, pleasing place (a garden filled with vibrant flowers, a beach with the tide coming in, a childhood favorite place that you always think of nostalgically), improves your mental imagery. And when you improve your mental imagery (which is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it becomes), the easier of a time you’ll have with dream recall and lucid dreaming.” From Lucid Dreaming and Meditation.
