YB, do you have lucid dreams?
Ones in which no matter how scary the dream, you aren't scared because you are in control of the dream? Like you're the screenwriter in your own movie.
One way to have more lucid dreams (or start having them) is to go to sleep focusing on what you can hear. Become aware of every sound around you, slowly bringing your awareness of sounds closer and closer until what you are listening to is inside your own head. It's hard to describe, but you'll know it when you hear it. Hindu Rishis refer to it as the sound of the universe, the sound of it's energy, your
energy. ... or sinusitus...
By focusing on this sound you can then get closer and closesr, with your awareness, to the exact moment of falling asleep. With practice it becomes easier and easier and you will then be able to enter the dreaming world in full control of your experiences in it, yet still able to watch and observe what the 'dreaming' is telling your subconscious.
If you need answers to something in your life, before you go to sleep, drink half a glass of pure water, thinking of your question as you drink. Even if you forget the dream (or that you even asked a question) drinking the other half when you wake up will trigger your memory and help you to remember the dream with the message, or at least seal the message into your subconscious where it can work away on your feelings and emotions and get through to your conscious world anyway.
