Description

Have you ever wondered what secrets your dreams hold? Do you wake up with just the briefest memory of your dream and you want to learn how to remember better? Do you want to know what your dreams mean? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then this book is for you.

Man has always been fascinated by the world of dreams. For thousands of years, dreams have been important to many cultures. They are how we can get in touch with ourselves, to learn, to grow and to overcome. However, how can we fully explore our dreams when they fade as we wake up? The answer is lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is when we know that we are in a dream state and therefore, we can look at our dream elements and find the meaning behind them.

Everything that we see in our dreams is produced by our own minds; lucid dreaming allows us to be aware of what we see in our dreams, helping us to learn and to remember what we have seen.

Introduction
There is a lot of diversity among mankind. We eat different things, we dress differently from each other, we do not all speak the same language but one thing that we all hold in common is that we sleep.
When we sleep, we dream. No matter where we live or what language we speak, we will all need to sleep daily and we will usually dream.
Sleep, although necessary, is not widely understood by most people and our dreams are even more baffling. What does it mean when we dream of falling or why are our dreams so unusual?
A lot of people think that they do not dream because they do not remember their dreams, why is that? Some dreams though, the lucid dreams, we are aware that we are dreaming and we have a measure of control over them but what causes them and how can we learn to control our dreams better?
These questions and many more will all be covered in this book. You will have a full understand of your sleep cycle, how to know what your dreams mean and you will learn how to control your dreams through lucid dreaming by the time you are done with this book.
What Happens When We Sleep?
Sleep; we all do it. What really happens when we sleep though? Our bodies and our minds go through changes when we sleep, which is why sleep is so important. We need sleep, it is when our body heals itself, when our systems refresh so to speak.
Unfortunately, most people skimp on their nightly amount of sleep, and that causes problems. This chapter explores what goes on behind the scenes when we sleep.
How much of our lives are spent sleeping? If we are getting the correct amount of sleep, we would be asleep for roughly one third of our lives. That seems like a lot, but really, it is just proof positive about how necessary sleep is to our health and well-being.
If we do not get enough sleep, it affects us when we are awake. Not getting enough sleep can sap us of our energy so we feel drained and tired all day, even lethargic.
Other things that suffer when we do not get enough sleep is our emotional state, our ability to be creative, our ability to focus and concentrate so as a result our productivity suffers, our mental sharpness declines and lack of sleep can even contribute to our weight.
We sleep in stages that cycle. There are four stages of NREM sleep and then one stage for REM sleep. REM stands for rapid eye movement and this is the stage in which we dream.
We go through all of the stages and then after REM sleep, we go back to stage one and the cycle continues. On average it takes us about 90 minutes to go through all five stages of the sleep cycle and with each sleep cycle, the REM stage longer than it did for the cycle right that preceded it.
For example, during the first sleep cycle, your first session of REM sleep will last for about ten minutes and by the fifth or sixth time that you go through the cycle, your REM stage of sleep will last anywhere from forty-five minutes to an hour.
Stage 1 is the first stage of our sleep cycle and it is the lightest stage of sleep that we experience. Often, during this stage, we will even say that we have not fallen asleep when we have because we are that lightly asleep; it is the stage where we are on the brink of sleeping or of being awake.
During this stage, our eyes move slowly under our eyelids and our muscles become less active. Our brainwaves will go from Alpha waves to Theta waves. It is very easy to wake up somebody from a stage 1 sleep. This stage lasts between five to ten minutes.
Stage 2 is when we actually fall asleep and we will be in stage two sleep for about twenty minutes. Our muscles go slack, our body temperature drops, our heart rate slows down and our eyes are still under our eyelids. Our brainwaves continue to go slower, going into Beta waves.
Stage 3 is when we are on asleep, and about to go to a deep sleep. Our muscles continue to stay slack, our eyes are still and our heart rate continues to be lower. Brain waves begin to go even slower, going from Beta to Delta waves.
If you are woken up from stage three sleep, you will be hard to awaken and you will be disorientated when you are woken up and groggy; this will take a few minutes to pass before you fully awaken and are fully aware of your surroundings.
Stage 4 is our deepest sleep and this is when our body repairs itself. Our breathing slows down, our muscles go very lax, our blood pressure drops, our bodies increases the blood supply to our tissues and this is when the most cell growth and repair happens.
It also revitalizes our mental and physical energy. Not getting enough sleep in this stage can make us feel mentally and physically worn out. Our brain waves stay at Delta for this stage.
