Meditation is a powerful tool that has been used for thousands of years to cultivate inner peace, enhance focus and concentration, and promote overall well-being. It involves training the mind to achieve a state of calmness and clarity, often through techniques like focused breathing, visualization, and body scanning.

Nowadays, meditation has become more popular than ever before. From reducing stress and anxiety to improving sleep and boosting creativity, the benefits of the practice are numerous and well-documented.

There are numerous sources to pick up meditation practices. One of the easiest ones is through mobile applications. However, as you may have guessed, there are countless apps available on the market. Which one should you choose? Even though the convenience of any particular app will vary from person to person, we have chosen and reviewed five of the most prominent ones. In this article, we will lay down the arguments for why they are good (or not) in four aspects:

  • The user experience
  • Content and features
  • Community
  • Cost



User experience.

Headspace's style corresponds quite nicely with the entire idea behind the app. It could best be described as ’’Simple and minimalistic’’ – and what more can you want from a meditation app, really?

As you fill out the introductory questionnaire about your experience and goals, you are then presented with a unique personalized plan for the day. It’s very clear to use and follow. Those who want to get more from the experience can switch to ’’explore’’ and find basically anything and everything related to meditation. The interface is eye-catching and beautiful as well as seamless to follow.



It was a great relief to find a disclaimer in the app that I should drop the expectations of something profound happening right away. I believe it’s a great introductory statement to people who wish to start meditating only because they expect amazing results right away. As is with most things in life, a meaningful meditation experience requires time and practice.

The app also allows you to easily track your progress, which provides both motivation and encouragement to engage with meditation as often as you can.

However, as you go to explore everything the app has to offer you about meditation, you can easily get lost. Even though, in essence, there are only 4 categories for content in the app (Meditate, Sleep, Move, and Focus), it’s not at all clear how they complement each other and interact with each other. There’s little education regarding meditation, and for someone who got into the app for a clear and concise experience, the notion of navigating through hundreds of different meditations for different purposes can be overwhelming, if not counter-productive. In other words, for an app that’s supposed to bring me inner peace, tranquility and oneness with myself, it’s rather scattered with no clear indication of how to bring all the pieces together.

Another aspect that’s worth critiquing is political pandering. I’ve come to the app for meditation, not education on the world's injustices. Therefore, I find the notion of politics in an app that’s supposed to offer tranquility and freedom from the world's worries rather distasteful.



There’s no community that you can interact with.


Cost ($69.99 for annual, $12.99 for monthly subscription)

Headspace offers its users a 14-day trial before they have to decide whether or not to keep using the app. In the context of other apps which usually offer up to 7 days trial, it’s quite a treat. However, the price range is rather high considering the fact that you’re paying for something you can do for free on your own. Additionally, the app has no free content – everything is locked behind a paywall once the trial period ends.





User experience.

Calm offers a very similar user experience to Headspace – there’s the personalized page aimed to cater to your needs, wants and goals according to the questionnaire you fill out after downloading the app; and then there’s the ’’discover’’ page, offering various content related to meditation. Finally, there’s the ’’Profile’’ page, revealing one’s progress and stats as well as offering a little extra in the form of a personal library, history, and various check-ins.

The app can feel a bit overwhelming and it will certainly take time to get used to in order to navigate it successfully and productively. It’s clear that the rule ’’less is more’’ was forgotten when creating the interface for the app.



When it comes to content, the app has a lot of stuff to offer – and that’s mainly where all the problems lie, for me, at least. For an app that’s called “Calm”, it certainly doesn’t feel that way when you browse all the different content, features, and categories. For example, you can discover content on the app according to these categories:

  • Dailies
  • Meditation
  • Music
  • Soundscapes
  • For Work
  • Sleep
  • Wisdom
  • Kids
  • Movement
  • Mindful Tools

Each offers countless practices and even more categories within the chosen category itself. Although some might find this useful to get precisely what you want, others will argue the app lacks clarity and will confuse a distracted mind rather than bring it to calmness as desired. Additionally, you can browse by your goals, desired timeframe, or discover featured collections. However, the app lacks educational content to get to know meditation a little better through theory.

All in all, it feels like the app wants to do and have everything – and it’s certainly not a perk for a mind that’s looking for calmness. On the other hand, if you’re chasing that perfect meditation practice and want to discover and experience as much content as possible, “Calm” will be an excellent fit for you.



The app has virtually no community around it. In essence, you can share your progress on social media and that is all – no interactions between users, no forums to discuss ideas.


Cost ($69.99 for annual subscription, $399.99 for lifetime)

The trial for “Calm” lasts only a week. After it ends, you can’t access anything without a subscription, except for the introductory courses. The price is the same as with “Headspace”.





User experience.

Aura is easy to navigate through the different content that the app provides and there’s certainly a lot of content in there. Just as with the previous apps, it is rather easy to get lost among the various features that the app provides. However, the structure of the app saves the day, making the navigation that much easier when compared to ’’Calm,’’ for example.

On the other hand, the main page of the app feels way closer to mindlessness rather than mindfulness – you can scroll to no end, similar to how you’d do it on social media. For an app built around meditation and mindfulness, the developers made a tragic decision to make the main page of the app a never-ending scroll of content.


Content and features.

From the very beginning, it seems like the app wants to know as much information about you as possible, just so the experience could be catered to your needs accordingly. However, it seems rather pointless as only a small fragment of the app’s content corresponds to the questionnaire you fill out at the start of using the app and is called “Programs For You”. If you stick to that, you will probably find the experience rather pleasant.

On the other hand, the amount of content on the app is truly overwhelming. For someone who has never tried meditation before, it will be extremely difficult to know and find exactly what they need or want.

To conclude, “Aura” offers an enormous amount of content around meditation. To those who know exactly what they need, it will be easy to navigate and find precisely the practices to cater to those needs. However, most people will find the experience overwhelming, especially beginners. The app’s layout is similar to that of a social media app and it gives out the same kind of feeling – any one practice within the app loses its value in an endless sea of content characterized by a mindless scroll.



Aura has quite a lot to offer in terms of community when compared to previous apps. There are various podcasts, personal couches, online lectures, etc. All of this content gives you a feel that you’re part of a larger community, especially when you register for a course that has other users signed up already. On the other hand, there’s a lack of interaction between the users.


Cost ($59.99 for annual subscription)

Similarly to other apps, Aura has a 7-day trial period and after it ends, the content is locked behind a paywall. You can still scroll through to find what you’re missing out on, though!



Healthy minds



User experience.

From the very first step after downloading the app, it stands out as truly caring about the user’s well-being. Rather than inquiring about what content you wish to find on the app (as the previous apps did), Healthy minds instead provides you with a long questionnaire focused on your health and well-being so that it can track your progress over time.

The Healthy minds app is smooth, clear, and easy to navigate – just the way a meditation app should be. Contrary to many other meditation apps, it is virtually impossible to get lost in the content of the app, even though it offers a similar navigation structure to its competitors.


Content and features.

The content on the Healthy minds app is structured in a concise way which makes it a pleasure to navigate.

The home page for the app is called ’’My Path’’ and includes 5 different categories on which you can improve yourself:

  • Foundational skills of training your mind
  • Awareness
  • Appreciation, kindness, and compassion
  • Insight
  • Deeper motivations and core values

The categories are structured clearly and offer a limited number of lessons and meditations. You can either improve yourself through meditation by focusing on one of them or doing all simultaneously. Every category adds to each other and together they create a path for improving one’s life, health, and being.

Contrary to other apps, the ’’Explore’’ option provides far less content. However, it is structured in a much better way and is much easier to navigate through, even if you’re a beginner and don’t know what you need exactly.



It would be great to share one’s progress with others or discuss the various aspects of the path. However, similar to other apps, the community aspect of Healthy minds is non-existent.



The Healthy minds app is completely free to use, although users can donate to the cause. 


Mindfulness app


User experience.

Mindfulness app probably feels the closest to meditation out of all the apps reviewed today. Additionally, it is seamlessly navigated and offers a beautiful design that corresponds to the notion of tranquility associated with meditation. It’s seamless to both find exactly what you’re looking for and discover something novel on the app.


Content and features

Mindfulness app offers a lot of meditations, yet the app never feels overwhelming. It offers the perfect balance between the quantity and distribution of the content within. Everything is easy to find and navigate, complementing the experience within the app as well as radiating the calmness and tranquility that one seeks to find in a similar app.



There’s no way to interact with other users. However, you can share your progress with your loved ones or on social media. Additionally, the app provides you with a number of people that are currently using the app for meditation, which brings a fuzzy feeling of interconnectedness.


Cost ($59.99 annual, $9.99 monthly subsciption)

The app’s trial period is 7 days. However, many features within the app are free to use, and there are other ways to access additional content without subscribing to the app. However, for the full experience, one will have to subscribe eventually – but you’ll be sure that you’re paying for something profound.

Lucid Dreams Therapy

Lucid dreams therapy uses nightmares and lucid dreams to heal different impairments of a person. Many scientific reports mention the clinical applications of Lucid dream therapy or LDT for treating mentally exhausted people. Psychiatric Journal, from the University of Ottawa, conducted research that explains that lucid dreams therapy ameliorates the intensity, frequency, and stress of nightmares in a person.

However, the use of Lucid Dream Therapy relies on the self-determination and experience of a person. If a person has the powerful insight of lucid dreams and is willing to use LD for improvement, he can reap more benefits from LDT. In his research, Dr Denholm aspy, from the University of Adelaide in Australia, mentioned that the practical application of LD helps treat nightmares. He further added that using lucid dreaming therapy for psychological healing can improve the quality of life for people.

What is the Central Philosophy behind Lucid Dreams Therapy?

LD therapy differs from the conventional psychological techniques which work on dreams. It is a modem therapeutic process that asks a person to induce LD and use it for meditation. However, the remnants of ancient eastern philosophies have also influenced this technique. Some people quote that LDT got inspiration from the old Tibetan Buddhist Dream yoga. Whatever the origin may be, lucid dreams therapy also gets backend by modern-day researches.

How Lucid Dreams Therapy Works?

Lucid dream therapy works by allowing the sleeper to control his dream. A lucid dreamer is aware of his LD. So, when he experiences a horror dream or a nightmare, he knows that it is not a reality. This awareness of the dream condition can solely console the person. Moreover, he can alternate the events of a chronic nightmare with a pleasant storyline. In this way, he not only gets rid of his dreams but can use LD for productivity. In this way, lucid dreams therapy also helps to treat patients with PSTD.


What is the Neurobiological Mechanism of LDT?

Lucid dreams therapy operates through the activation of the frontal lobe that automatically inhibits the limbic system. LD also stops the production of certain neurotransmitters in the limbic system. So, in this way, the refrainment of this system eventually decreases the frequency of nightmares. Further explanation of this process is available in the research conducted by the Sleep research society of Oxford.

What are the Advantages of using Lucid Dreams Therapy over other Therapies?

According to the Lancee, following are the advantages of using LDT over other techniques,

  • Lucid dreams therapy can treat nightmares with high intensity. It is because the sleeper acquires control over their dreams due to LDT. Unlike it, IRT deals with only low-intensity dreams.
  • The second benefit is that lucid dreams therapy is more helpful for people who suffer from nonrecurring nightmares.
  • Another benefit is that during LDT, the dreamer knows that it is a mere dream. And it has no concern with reality.

The endnote is that lucid dreams therapy is a more powerful self-nurturing technique. Moreover, the ability of the therapy to bring changes in one session makes it more demanding.

Lucid dreaming vs Shifting

There has been hype on TikTok regarding shifting this year. There were 22.4 billion views on the videos related to the hashtag #dracomalfoy. The tiktokers claimed that they visited the Harry Potter world by switching into the other parallel realm of the universe. The TikTok practitioners claimed that switching to another parallel universe of your choice in the real-time world is possible.

Peoples often get confused about whether lucid dreaming and shifting are the same or not. Although, LD and reality shifting seem similar. But keep in mind that reality shifting is more realistic and original.

Experienced Legends quote that LD involved the events happening in the sleep of a person. In lucid dreams, nothing is a part of a realistic world. Contrary to it, reality shifting is something more vivid and reality-based. It involves transferring your consciousness to another realm for the period you wish.

How does LD differ from shifting?

Lucid dreams and reality shifting have entirely different objectives and scenarios. Let’s delve into these differences to get a better understanding of both techniques:

Different objectives

People practising LD or reality shifting have entirely different aims. For people, reality shifts involve a technique of moving your physical being from current dimensions to another dimension of your choice. On the other hand, lucid dreams are a way to imagine your fantasies.

Difference of state

LD revolves around a dream world. However, reality shifting is about travelling from one timeframe of the waking world to another.

Scientific approvals

A plethora of scientific researches support the concept of lucid dreaming. The Health line on Lucid dreaming reports that about 50% of the population experience LD. In short, LD gets backed by scientific facts and reasoning. On the other hand, reality shifting does not owe any scientific findings. A book, Quantum jumping by Butt Goldman, offers some practices of the technique. Moreover, there are no stats available regarding how many peoples can practice it.

Method of induction

Lucid dreams are inducible only after sleeping. However, you don’t need to sleep to practice shifting. All the methods to perform shifting like the Raven and the Alice in the Wonderlands work while awake.

Meaningful technique

Some psychologists quote that reality shifting is more meaningful than LD. It provides you with the perception of your natural world, and it may help you understand the other realms. However, LD enables a person to do anything he wants. Reality shifting always has some productive intent, but lucid dreaming does not. People may perform LD without having any specific intention.

Can lucid dreaming help for shifting?

Some Reddit users claim that LD helped them shift to another reality. Arsy Sangster, a Wattpad user, quoted that the lucid dream method is more helpful for experiencing shifting. He said that waking after one hour of your bedtime will compel you to sleep again. You can use this situation to shift to another reality. Try to induce lucid dreaming while being sleepy and imagine a staircase to switch to another universe. You will feel like you are moving to another dimension.

Is Shared Lucid Dreaming Possible?

The concept of shared lucid dreaming or mutual dreaming is common among people. The movie inception portrays this concept in which the two dreamers have a mutual dream and visit the dreamscape of one person. Freudian dream analysis conducted by Sigmund Freud mentions that sharing a common objective or dream telepathy is possible. Mutual dreaming, dream mesh, and dream meeting are other terms used for this concept. There are different paranormal descriptions for this concept. Some people comment that through telepathy, one can project into the dreamscape of other people.

On the other hand, some would say that dreams are a separate reality and artificial intelligence or artificial stimulation can help people. Scientists are hoping to use this concept for checking the authenticity of dreams, and they believe that a dream meeting can help investigate the existence of dream realms.

Is There Any Evidence that Shared Lucid Dreaming is Possible?


A very experienced practitioner of lucid dreaming, Stephen Laberge, had been working on the phenomenon of shared dreams. He had conducted several case studies since 2019, but he had not succeeded in drawing any logical inference. The only paranormal evidence is that some dreamers claimed that they experienced the same dream. However, there is no statistical evidence for this concept. A perception is that the two people encountered the same situation in the day, which led them to a shared dream at night. It means that similar circumstances can cause the same imagination and subconscious thinking at night. Another hurdle in instigating shared dreaming is that LD can only occur in the rapid eye movement sleep cycle. So for two people to have a dream meeting, both must experience the REM cycle simultaneously. This phenomenon appears a little bit absurd in actuality, and no scientific findings have proved this fact.

Why Do People Want to Have Shared Lucid Dreams?

Scientists like Dr. Stephen Laberge mention that group dreaming can help understand the genuine reality of dream worlds. Another study made in 2017 says that people want to have shared dreams to develop their emotional connection with their loved ones. Separation of lack of intimacy among two partners can also become a solid reason for the shared ideals. 96 % of the dreamers having a group dream were friends, spouses, or relatives.

What Are the Ways to Have A Shared Lucid Dream?

A shared lucid dream is possible in two ways:

  • Meshing dreams
  • Meeting dreams


Both of these cases can be preplanned or unplanned. Both of the participants can talk about a shared event before sleeping. Discussing such an event can become a source of having a shared dream. Meshing dreams depend on coincidences, but dream meetings are more upgraded. In this two, people can preplan a dreamscape and make a conscious effort to visualize their dreams. Upon waking, they will have enough standard information to share.

So, the final thoughts are that people believe in having a shared dream and want to use it positively. However, the lack of scientific study makes this effect a paranormal activity.


Lucid dreaming can act as a healthy practice to sort out your problems. You can implement your new plans in a dream and interpret the results. Lucid dreams are a great way to check the efficiency of a solution because you don't have any concern about the end. Patrick Bourke, a Senior Lecturer at the Lincoln School of Psychology, researched to find a link between Lucid dreaming and problem-solving. He found that lucid dreamers can solve their problems 25 times better than non-lucid dreamers.

However, the actual correlation between the two aspects is further investigable. Experts say that the rapid eye movement sleep cycle fosters integration and creative skills while dreaming. This integrity and concentration help a person to solve the problem during dreams.

How Do Lucid Dreaming and Problem Solving Relate to Each Other?

As we know if a person takes healthier and sound sleep, he enjoys good mental health. Moreover, consistent lucid dreams are a great way to get rid of your psychological issues and nightmares. All this positively impacts the dreamer's personality and enables him to be wiser while solving problems.

Another link between solving problems and LD is that lucid dreaming can identify hidden mysteries. So, it can provide you with an insight into your issues better than the waking world. So, a dreamer can translate the veiled spots of his waking life into a dream world and find a solution.

How Does the Brain Solve Emotional Problems Using Lucid Dreaming?


Working as the president of the international association for the study of dreams, Robert Hoss said that the human brain uses dreams to solve a person's emotional issues. Keep in mind that The problem-solving regions of the brain work during dreams. So, if a person is giving up in an intense situation, his brain recalls his past incidents to give him a pushing force. Your brain presents a vivid video of your desperate past events having the same issues. In this way, a person gains power and determination to solve his recent problems. You may experience that the dreamscape presents the same emotional scenes you are going through. It is a subconscious effort of the human brain to solve problems.

How Can You Use Lucid Dreaming to Solve a Problem?

Here are the three steps to figure out your problems in a dream:

Visualize your problem. If you have any emotional concern with a person, place his photo on the side table. Worried about your half-completed Science project, visualize it before sleeping.

Try to think of your problem as a video in your dreams. Avoid any distractions or astray thoughts and stay concerned about your issue.

Don't wake up immediately in the morning. Lay on your bed and think for a while about your dream. It will help you revive your whole dream and get rid of your stress.


The endnote is that solving problems in dreams is not a myth now. Several artists, dramatists, and painters use dreams to discover their creativity blockage.

Reality checks during lucid dreams

The clash between the dream and the waking world enables the lucid dreamers to judge whether they are dreaming or waking. Somethings being ubiquitous in lucid dreams help you to investigate your consciousness. For example, take a hand and see if you can poke a finger through it. If you can pass a finger through your hand, you are dreaming. But you can’t do that in real life. Similarly, flying in the air is possible in LD but not in reality.


However, some reality checks may fail due to a lack of control over the LD. So, lucid dreamers must line up different reality checks for apprehension. Researchers also investigated the correlation between LD and reality checks and found that observing strange objects makes a person lucid instantly. It means that figuring out reality and lucidity often enables a person to do these checks in the dreams. So, this way, a dreamer can trigger a lucid dream more easily.

What are some reality checks to do?

Counting your fingers

Looking at your hands is a great way to test whether or not you are dreaming. When you are in a dream, and you figure out your fingers, you will usually have six or four fingers, and your hands in the dream world often look different than in real life. So during the night, you will notice that your hands do not look perfect, which means you are lucid.

Plug your nose and try to breathe

Take your fingers and put them over your nose, and when your fingers are holding your nose shut, try and breathe through the nose. You’ll feel that your nose is blocked, and you can’t breathe through it. But if you are actually in a lucid dream, you’ll feel like breathing through open nostrils; it will help you realize lucid dreaming.

Reading text

While dreaming, if you read something like a clock or a poster, and then you look away, and you look back at it, it will change every single time. So when you are in waking life, and you want to do a reality check, just read a sign or something, or look somewhere else, and shiny analyze the board. If it changes, it means you are lucid dreaming.

What makes a good reality check?


If you think, where are you? Can you see? How did you get there? What is your plan?; To apprehend a lucid dream, it will not work. These things are very fuzzy and challenging to understand in the dream world. So, trying to do something omnipresent in the LD means that the reality check must be defensive because the human brain cannot draw logical conclusions. Moreover, if a lucid dreamer practice reality checks in waking life, he will succeed in judging his lucid dream.

What is the perfect time to do a reality check?

The best time to do a reality check is the onset of the rapid eye movement sleep cycle. A REM cycle starts after 90 minutes of sleep. So, you can do your first reality check after 1-2 hours.


The endnote is that don’t practice a reality check more then 15-20 times a day. Moreover, frequent checking eliminates the ubiquity of a process, and you fail to analyze the reality.

How to start lucid dreaming?

Have you ever felt in the middle of your rest that you are dreaming? It is called lucid dreaming, and most people experience it from time to time, seemingly by accident. However, there are several things you can do to stimulate lucid dreams if they seem attractive to you. Read further the best tips on sleep and dreaming of starting lucid dreaming. Lucid dreams may occur naturally, but there are several ways how to start lucid dreaming more likely?

Following techniques help you to start lucid dreaming:

Check reality often

Take the habit of asking yourself if you're dreaming during the day, or even try to swipe your palm or launch yourself into flight.

In most cases, you will instantly recognize that this is the reality of waking, and you cannot climb into the air at will, but it will give you the habit of doubting your state of consciousness, which will increase the likelihood that you will do so in your sleep.

Sleep more to make dreams more likely

Of course, to achieve lucid dreams, one must reach REM sleep.

Avoid alcohol and other substances before going to bed that may inhibit dreaming, observe your sleep schedule, etc.

Use the power of suggestion.

When lucid dreaming was first scientifically confirmed, the suggestion seemed to be one of the most common practices to induce lucid sleep. To do this, clear your mind, relax and repeat one of the following statements to yourself until you start believing in it:

  • Tonight, in my sleep, I'll understand what I'm sleeping and become conscious.
  • Tonight in my sleep, when I see something strange, I realize I'm sleeping, and I recognize it.
  • I'm continuing to be more decisive of myself in my sleep today. When I notify something strange, I realize I'm sleeping, and I'll become aware.

Identify recurring ideas or signs in your dreams.

Do you have a recurring character or sleep theme that keeps popping up? You can use it as a trigger to become clear. "When you fall asleep, you can tell yourself: "The next time this well-known event happens in a dream, or I see this character who often appears, I realize I'm sleeping."

Take a nap

Sleep is usually easier than what we experience at night to contribute to clarity. When you fall asleep, "try to keep your mind awake and present in the dream world when you start to enter REM sleep," she says.

Think about your previous dreams

Mnemonic induction technology of lucid dreams (MILD) is a memory technique used to stimulate lucid dreams. Start by remembering your dreams, whether it's the night before or the one you just woke up from.

Think about the anomaly that occurred in a dream.

Visualize or imagine yourself returning to sleep, seeing this anomaly, becoming enlightened, and doing some action or the next step in this dream in a state of enlightenment.

Bottom line

Lucid dreaming is undoubtedly a fascinating and, for many an eye-opening experience. Although there are those, who are better off avoiding it, if you are at peace with your life, you may well try this practice with the right goals. Happy dreams!

Developing your habits in hours or days is not feasible, and having a lucid dream is like adopting a routine. You need to train your mind, body, and brain to lucid dream. There is no magic to happen; you need to keep patience and show your dedication until you achieve your first lucid dream.

So, firstly, you must know that if you've only been trying to have a lucid dream for about one week, that's not long enough.

You will learn in this article about the time it will take to have your first lucid dream and some factors that will help you achieve it.

What Does Science Say?


According to some research, this process can take up to six months or even longer. That's not something many of you want to hear, but that's just the truth.

It can take a long time to build up these new habits. If you're dedicated and apply to yourself (whatever you learn), do as much effort and research and practice as you can. You can have lucid dreams up to a month from when you start. But usually, it takes six months or more. Now obviously, if you would like to have lucid dreams after a month of practice only, you need to understand its factors.

How to Achieve Lucid Dreams Quickly?

Beyond that one week, all you need to know is not a lot of time expecting to have reliable lucid dreams. There are multiple factors behind this, and some are inevitable; like having a good grip of invention recalling or reducing distraction in lucid dreams with the help of meditation is equally mandatory.

Why Does Dream Recall So Necessary?


Usually, people find it hard to remember what they did the last night or dreamed. If they can't even remember they're normal dreams, they have no chance of having a lucid dream. So always, the first step is to practice your dream recall. You can achieve this through maintaining a dream journal to remember them. Because by actually telling your brain that you want to remember them, you want to train yourself to recognise them more, and eventually, it becomes like a snowball effect.

There are many tools to achieve it, but an essential one is practising meditation, and it works nicely and helps rapid induction of lucid dreams.

Now, what meditation does? It is like tuning you out from the noise of the world and focusing on your mind only. You put yourself back in your head; it's the way to a place where your thoughts aren't in control of what you're doing.

It's all about your dedication, patience, and consistent effort towards achieving a lucid dream. There is no magic, but sincere efforts can do wonders for you to experience your first lucid dream.


Galantamine has a wide range of medicinal uses and also induces lucid dreaming. It acts as a memory enhancer which in turn helps to trigger lucidity. The effectiveness of the Galantamine pill increases when used in combination with an integrated induction protocol.
