Your dreams are your internal therapist. They will bring up anything you need to address I life or business you need to complete. When it comes to lucid dreaming tasks and missions, Emotional regulation matters, and Your mindset matters, when trying to summon or create something in a dream, any doubt or belief that you will fail can manifest. Try not to get frustrated and have fun with it. Eliminate the word “problem”. Words have power and if you believe you cannot have a lucid dream that will affect the experience you have. IF you tell yourself “I can’t get lucid, I suck at this, I can never fly in a dream” That is what you will see. If you have not gotten lucid in a while, remember that even droughts have something to teach us & it is all a part of your journey. Even the most experience lucid dreamers have periods of inactivity.

Do not give up on your dream work and you will soon get lucid again! Do not overthink, compare yourself to others or stress yourself out. Let go of fear, and have fun with your dreamwork practice, embracing anything it has to show you. Remember, it is easy and simple and it is your dream world! Lucid dreaming is encoded in all of us naturally, and that should be what you tell yourself. Your subconscious is always listening.
When it comes to trying to become lucid, be patient & be careful not to beat yourself up for missing obvious signs, or not acting this way or that way in the dream—that’s key. It’s not about blame, but about noticing our patterns, and knowing there will be another opportunity to make a different choice the next time we lay down to sleep. Dreamwork is a consistent game played over time, with results coming from consistency and trial and error. It is more like a career mode or story mode VR game, rather than a one time attempt pass/fail. Mind body connection allows the mental problems to manifest themselves as physical symptoms. The mind is in our body and directly tied to every conscious and unconscious move we make.

In the Mnemonic Induction Lucid Dream (MILD) technique, one rehearses a dream and visualises becoming lucid while repeating a mantra expressing the same intention, such as: “Next time I’m dreaming I want to remember that I am dreaming.” For best results, it should be performed while returning to slumber during the Wake-Back-To-Bed (WBTB) technique, whereby one sets their alarm clock to one or two hours before their normal waking time, gets up for a few minutes, and then goes back to sleep.
