Lucid Dream Center

Chapter Two - Here is the key to your lucid dream center.

Each night, we spend about one and a half to two hours dreaming. We dream about once every 90 minutes of sleep.

The time you spend in dreams becomes longer throughout the night, from about 10 minutes to around 45 minutes or slightly longer.

But what happens when we sleep?

The dreaming we remember is from this REM sleep period.

Here is the key to your lucid dream center.

There are five stages of sleep: four stages of NREM (Non-REM) sleep, also called SWS (Slow-Wave Sleep), and one stage of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. The most vivid dreams, and therefore the ones we remember the most, occur during REM sleep (though we dream in other stages too). One sleep cycle is roughly 90 minutes long. While in REM sleep mode we are in our dream center.

(NREM1) The first stage is a transition state between wakefulness and sleep. This is the stage that hypnagogic imagery occurs in. It usually passes into stage 2 within a few minutes.

(NREM2) During stage 2, the body gradually shuts down, and brain waves become larger.

(NREM3) Stage 3 usually occurs 30 to 45 minutes after falling asleep the first time. Large, slow delta brain waves are generated.

(NREM4) Stage 4 is often called “deep sleep” or “delta sleep”. The heart beats the slowest and there is the least brain activity. It is during this stage that sleepwalking usually occurs.

After stage 4, the NREM stages reverse and move back through stage 3 to stage 2, and then into REM sleep – the dream's center.

(REM) During REM sleep, some parts of the brain are nearly as active as while awake. In this stage, your eyes flicker rapidly (hence the acronym Rapid Eye Movement). Your body is paralyzed, probably to prevent you from acting out your dreams. Very vivid dreams and some slight conscious awareness of the dream is known as lucid dreaming. 


After the REM state, (also known as the Alpha Mind state) you sometimes wake briefly. This is usually forgotten by the time you wake up in the morning. If you don't wake up, you go to stage 2.

Questions And Comments About The Lucid Dream Center


But I never dream! Surely I can't lucid dream? - by Awakened Spirit

  • Incorrect. You might not think you dream, but you do. You dream at least five times a night, however most people simply don't remember their dreams.

Lucid Dream Shadows - by Bonnie (Scotland)

Ever since I was little could lucid dream. In one dream I felt odd and I felt someone was in the room so I forced myself to wake up. I knew something was wrong and something told me to look up. So I did and I saw a shadow floating above my head, like a silent raven circling above my head. It did no harm, but my friend has told me I have seen an entity. I've been telling myself these weird things are just hallucinations, as they are always when I wake up. But I’ve been told by many spiritual people I should just believe in what I am seeing. I no longer feel or see them so much, is it because I had lost faith?
