Scientists Discover The Most Effective Way To Induce A Lucid Dream & It Works For Everyone

Published

on

Lucid Dreaming is a state of dreaming where you can control your dreams, and sort of create as you go. It is a fascinating topic, and has long been spoken of in the realms of philosophy. But in recent years as scientific technology has developed, studies have allowed humanity to view what’s happening in the brain while a lucid dream is occurring. Now, this doesn’t mean that activity in the brain is responsible for lucid dreaming, although it’s not uncommon for conventional scientists to view activity in the brain as the cause of an individual’s experience, rather than a consequence of it. But indeed, there is evidence that our emotional states that are caused by something else can trigger different areas and activity generation in the brain.

It boils down to the question of consciousness, and whether or not it’s something that comes from our physical brain, or if consciousness exists as a separate entity outside of the brain. Based on quantum physics, neuroscience, and especially declassified and emerging studies within non-material science and parapsychology, I believe that there should be no question that what we call consciousness originates and exists as something separate from physical reality. It’s time to acknowledge the existence of non-material reality.

Studies Of Lucid Dreaming

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Lucidity Institute investigated how chemicals known as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) could induce or help promote lucid dreaming. The new method used in the study, according to psychologist Denhold Aspy from the University of Adelaide in Australia, one of the researchers, helped them “to be able to properly do research on lucid dreaming,” he told  New Scientist.

Lucid dreaming is a remarkable state of consciousness in which one is aware of the fact that one is dreaming while continuing to dream. Based on the strong relationship between physiological activation during rapid eye-movement sleep and lucid dreaming, our pilot research investigated whether enhancing cortical activation via acetylcholinesterease inhibition (AChEI) would increase the frequency of lucid dreams and found AChEI to be a promising method for lucid dream induction. (study)

They point out how a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine could help modulate REM sleep, and this group of chemicals (AChEls), could help by releasing a certain enzyme that in turn activates this neurotransmitter. They noted that a common drug used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, galantamine (an AChEI) could be used to induce lucid dreaming, and it worked.

These results show that galantamine increases the frequency of lucid dreams in a dose-related manner. Furthermore, the integrated method of taking galantamine in the last third of the night with at least 30 minutes of sleep interruption and with an appropriately focused mental set is one of the most effective methods for inducing lucid dreams available today.

Participants took higher doses of the drug each night, but when combined with cognitive therapy (a more natural way to induce lucid dreaming), things really started to speed up. But the study shows how increased dosage of the drug every night, combined with the steps, really did something. When the dosage was increased to 8 mg from 4 mg, lucid dreaming rose from 27 to 42 percent.

Impacts of Lucid Dreaming

Science Alert Points out,

In addition to helping people enjoy fantastic dreams where they can help control what happens, the research could also help explain the links between lucid dreams and consciousness, and help people to confront their fears and process trauma while safely asleep.

A  study conducted in 2009 at the Neurological Laboratory in Frankfurt shows how lucid dreamers produce the fastest brainwave frequencies ever recorded, gamma brainwaves that operate at 40Hz +(source).  This suggests that lucid dreamers are more self-aware, and are more conscious in this state than compared to a normal state of wakefulness. We don’t operate anywhere near that frequency (with regards to brain waves) when in our normal wakeful state, and we operate at even lower frequencies during other sleep states.

Some researchers suggest that the existence of gamma brainwaves indicates a totally conscious experience, so the experience of being awake within a dream is a very real phenomenon. This begs the question, which state is actually real? Could what we perceive as being fully aware and awake be the real dream? Or are these just different aspects of reality that we are jumping to and from?

Questioning The Need For Drugs

Not to be forgotten is the fact that potentially harmful drugs were used in this study. Although they are said to have minimal side effects, prescription drugs kill many people all over the world every single year, and they are not needed as much as we are made to believe they are. There are many other methods available, but the medical industry is a separate topic in itself.

When it comes to Lucid Dreaming, the cognitive method has given many people tremendous success. This includes getting a good night’s sleep, and being able to record every single dream you have in a dream journal. You need to practice how to remember your dreams to start off with. Before you go to bed, do some affirmations to yourself. Tell yourself that you are going to have a lucid dream, and ask yourself throughout the day, “am I dreaming?” Visualize your dreams. Here is a list of 6 essential things you could try doing.

For scientific purposes, this study is interesting and could certainly help advance knowledge in the field:

As one of the challenges for conducting scientific research on lucid dreaming is its relative infrequency, making the state more accessible would increase the efficiency of the collection of larger datasets, which would greatly facilitate research in this field. (study)

But while this particular study was done under controlled conditions by people who knew what they were doing, it’s still important to mention that other natural methods like the ones mentioned above are giving a lot of people success.

A Simple Trick To Unlock Determination & Focus

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a world filled with distractions, the ability to lock in and focus has become harder and harder to master. But rather than looking outside of yourself for a solution, the key may just lie within.

  • Reflect On:

    How many notifications do you receive daily? Are there any Apps that rather than always receiving notifications from you could instead just check at certain times?

A recent study revealed that in the United States, the average smartphone user receives 45.9 push notifications per day, and many of us exceed that number. From Facebook to Instagram to Twitter to WhatsApp to Gmail, everything is constantly vying for our attention.

As a result of this overload, we’re experiencing a collective inability to focus at our highest potential and a reality where the majority of us are consistently fighting off some sort of urge to do something else.

(Fun Fact: Even as I’ve just started to write this article I’ve already seen my phone light up twice with notifications. I’ve now followed my own rules and have turned it over to lock in on the task at hand–more on this later.)

Even if you are part of the dying breed of individuals who have sworn off social media, although you finding and reading this article suggests otherwise, we all seem to be having an incredibly difficult time staying focused.

And with every useless scroll through our Instagram news feed and with every endless YouTube video rabbit hole we fall into, we only further shrink our attention span and strengthen the programming that convinces us that this is normal behaviour.

advertisement - learn more

Assuming that part of why you clicked on this article is because you do have something that you ideally would like to focus on and ultimately accomplish, I’d like to share with you the best tactic I’ve personally found (and some bonus ones) to “lock in.” Believe it or not, this tactic is not a specific exercise, but is instead designed for you to realize that you still have an incredible ability to focus within you. It hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s just been misguided.

In fact, it’s likely getting more use than you could ever imagine.

The best way to explain this further is by using an example. Think of the last time you either: A) lost your phone, or B) forgot to bring a charger and realized that your phone was about to die.

The moment that either of those realities kick in for most of us, we immediately enter a state where nothing else matters. In scenario A, we search everywhere possible, call it from any other device we can get our hands on, and seek out the assistance of everyone available. In scenario B, despite being an introvert on the daily, we suddenly find ourselves engaging in conversation with everyone by asking for a charger, and if one can’t be found we start planning our exit no matter how much fun we’re having pre-low battery.

We’ve all experienced and have seen this before. When assessed like this, it likely sounds like a form of insanity–and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is–but from a completely different perspective, it’s actually fully “locked in” determination.

You see, we all have the capacity to focus on one particular thing and give all of ourselves to it, it’s just that our auto-pilot has become the opposite because of the sheer number of distractions we are exposed to and have become addicted to.

So rather than looking outside of yourself for some practice or technique that’s going to help you focus and finish writing that book, completing the homework, or finally send out those wedding thank you cards, look within and realize that you are still a determination powerhouse just waiting to be re-guided.

Bonus Tips: 1) When working on something important, put your phone on silent and either put it in another room or face down on your desk. 2) Consider turning off notifications and instead just check certain apps at particular points in the day. I’ve personally turned off all notifications from Facebook, Instagram and all audible email pushes.

Indigenous Leaders Share the Prophecy of the Reunion of the Condor and Eagle (VIDEO)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Indigenous cultures from around the globe all share a prophecy about the time we are living in now. It states that the people of Earth will unite in some sort of spiritual awakening with the common goal of peace on Earth.

  • Reflect On:

    Think about how much human consciousness has changed within the past 10 years alone. We are starting to see through the lies and deception, we are starting to realize that it's really time to change things here on our planet. We are in the process.

Indigenous cultures today struggle to remember their teachings. It doesn’t help that the western world portrays them in a certain light, but the fact remains that indigenous cultures were extremely advanced. They understood how to live in harmony with the Earth, and their teachings were very profound, insightful and spiritual. You don’t need to look far to see how knowledgable they were, and their knowledge of our planet, the cosmos, science and mathematics still baffles experts today. How they were able to acquire certain knowledge and build various structures is still a mystery, as many of these things would be difficult to replicate even using modern technology. We see this with the pyramids built by various indigenous cultures throughout history, pieces of artwork, and several other anomalous artifacts that really don’t receive much media attention. These people were highly advanced, but unfortunately colonization and the arrival of the Europeans changed all of that. I still get upset when I hear people interpret these cultures as very ‘primitive,’ as if they just lived in forests. That interpretation is very far from the truth.

Scholars have estimated that, prior to the ‘discovery’ of the Americas by Europeans, the pre-contact era population could have been as high as 100 million people. American anthropologist and ethnohistorian Henry F. Dobyns, most known for his published research on American Indians and Hispanic peoples in Latin and North America, estimated that more than one hundred twelve million people inhabited the Americas prior to European arrival. (source)(source)(source)

When these cultures were wiped out, so were their teachings, knowledge and wisdom. It was replaced with religious indoctrination, and indigenous cultures throughout the world, especially in North America, have since struggled to regain and retain the knowledge and teachings that were lost.

But things are changing.

These cultures also had prophecies, and many of them speak of a time when all of this knowledge would be lost, but then would eventually return to Earth. Prophecies speak of indigenous cultures and bloodlines reuniting. We’re living in a special time right now because that ancient indigenous prophecy wasn’t just referring to the ‘spiritual awakening’ of their own people, but of the entire planet, and this is the process we’re going through today.

It gives me chills just thinking about it. The time has come where many desire a cleaner, greener, more cooperative human experience where everybody can thrive. Humanity has the potential to live in peace and meet the needs of everyone easily. We can live in harmony with nature and work with it, not against it.

Here at Collective Evolution, we refer to this time as the shift in consciousness, and we are currently living through it. The ‘darkness’ is being exposed, and this ‘darkness’ has primarily relied on the manipulation of human consciousness. Our thoughts, feelings and perceptions about what is happening on our planet have been completely altered by the same forces that once sought to wipe out indigenous knowledge and implant their own ideals. Just as the surviving indigenous after European arrival were brainwashed and indoctrinated, we too have been brainwashed and indoctrinated.

Today, we live in a society that manipulates our consciousness in order to justify wars, wars based on false premises. We are made to believe that, even with all our technological advancements and potential to provide abundance for all, that this is not ‘economically feasible.’ We’ve been made to believe that our medicines are helping us, and that we can ‘out-do’ nature and rise above it. So many of humanity’s actions are not in harmony with the planet and all life on it.

Thankfully, this mass spiritual awakening is here. Not only is humanity becoming aware of the fact that we can change the human experience to one that resonates with all, but we are also realizing that we’ve been manipulated, that we have the power to change, and that a world beyond our physical material world exists. Non-material science is becoming stronger, and awareness of the metaphysical world is becoming the norm.

Many activist movements are growing, and truth movements and campaigns have been gaining attention and popularity for years. We are no longer sitting idle, we are raising our voice, we are acting, and we are bringing about a shift in consciousness and a spiritual awakening that was prophesied  long before we were even here. It’s a beautiful time to be alive, and the best way to bring about peace, love, unity and cooperation is to embody these qualities within ourselves.

Below is a video of indigenous leaders and elders sharing and explaining the current transitional time that we are living in.

There have been wounds of injustice, of oppression, of colonization, of greed, of superstition, all those things which injure the human heart. At the same time there’s been no way for this to be expressed, it’s been held inside. So this ancestral wound is this wound that’s been carried on from generation to generation to generation, this intergenerational trauma. But it was also prophesied  and promised that after a period of 500 years that a great, great spiritual spring time would emerge with such power and such intensity that all that had been covered in the cold bitter snow would be revealed and cleansed and purified. And that we would emerge galvanized, reunited as not only the reunion of the Condor and Eagle, but a reunion of the entire human family. This time is now. (This quote was taken from the video below.)

The Takeaway

We are truly living in an apocalypse. But that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world, but rather a disclosure or revelation of knowledge. A lot of truths are being exposed today within several different subjects, be it food, politics, health, etc. We are being presented with knowledge that severely contrasts what we’ve been indoctrinated to believe. Having our collective belief systems questioned and challenged is not an easy process, and many are still fighting to hang on to old ways and belief systems. This is all part of the current spiritual transformation/shift in consciousness that the human race is experiencing as a collective. It’s all part of these ancient prophecies.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Plan To Raise Their Child ‘Gender-Fluid’; Part Of A Bigger Agenda?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Meghan Markle is among several high-profile women coming out these days saying that her child will be raised 'gender fluid', 'genderless,' or 'gender-neutral.'

  • Reflect On:

    Is this simply the 'empowering, modern parenting style' the mainstream is making it out to be, or could it be a small part of a larger and more sinister agenda?

It’s a good time for us to take a step back and try to examine what exactly is going on in our society today with regards to gender identity, especially in the way we are dealing with children too young to be able to make any informed choices. It’s a tricky subject, to be sure, but as with many other issues, the devil is in the polarities.

We come from a past in which only heterosexual men and women were considered to be of value to a society, while any deviations from this norm were muted and hidden, shed off as outcasts and relegated to the dark shadows of social standing. Any sign of deviation from the gender stereotypes of assertive, action-oriented men and submissive, child-rearing women was a black mark not only on an individual but on the individual’s family as well. As a consequence, children were not only encouraged, but compelled, sometimes under the threat of disownment or even death, to fit themselves into the established norms.

Pendulum Swing

We can certainly be proud that, as a society, we have moved away from this extremity. We have generally developed a much higher level of acceptance, certainly in the Western world, for many sexual and gender preferences that differ from the norm. But are we actually pushing it too far now, and waging an all-out attack on an old extremity while promoting a new one?

In this Vanity Fair article, we are told that ‘Meghan plans to pursue an empowering, modern parenting style,’ based on the following information from a source:

“Meghan has been talking to some of her friends about the birth and how she and Harry plan to raise their baby. Her exact word was ‘fluid’. She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes.”

This means, among other things, that the nursery might not be filled with toy trains and cars, even if rumors that a boy is coming are true. The Sussexes have already planned a gender-neutral nursery and opted for whites and grays over conventional blue and pink colors. While these particular choices don’t seem extreme, their relationship to other promotions going on, such as Celine Dion’s creepy launch of gender-neutral clothing, should give us reason to pause.

Tremendous Influence

We need to notice that there is a kind of forced righteousness in the discussion of a ‘fluid approach to gender’ and the denigration of ‘gender stereotypes’. I personally believe the remnants of gender stereotyping in the West are no longer at a level where we need celebrities making right by their children by declaring they will be raised as ‘gender-neutral’ or ‘gender fluid’. In raising my own five year old, I never gave a thought to ‘gender stereotypes’ simply because it wasn’t important to me whether or not my son acted in ways that conformed to a certain stereotype. I am simply ready to accept my son as he is in all regards and encourage him to have the experiences he wants. But at the same time I’m not going to run out and buy a dress every time I buy him a shirt and pants and continually ask him what he wants to wear.

A Royal couple making a simple declaration to take ‘a fluid approach to gender’ can plant a subtle seed in the minds of millions of people. The words of celebrities can have a similar effect. The same article talks about Kate Hudson wanting to raise her daughter ‘genderless’ and Angelina Jolie aspiring to raise her children without stereotyped ideas about gender. While any particular comment from one person can be taken at face value, the confluence of opinions that are knocking traditional gender identification cannot be ignored. It seems like subtle suggestions are being put out to millions of parents to encourage and highlight their children’s ambivalent feelings around gender while avoiding the reinforcement of identification with traditional gender norms.

Here’s the problem with that. Children need positive reinforcement about their identity and sense of self. They cannot be expected to make all the choices themselves about who they are, as though they were the adult in the room aware of what it takes to build self-esteem and confidence. However, the soldiers of this ’empowering, modern parenting style’ march on.

A Bigger Agenda

I have written in the past about how gender confusion is being manifested in our society as part of a much bigger agenda. In my article ‘Illuminati Pedophilia: Attempts To Normalize Sex Between Adults And Children (Part 1),’ the discussion centers around how ambivalent feelings around gender within children are being heightened and exploited through a sinister campaign that involves not only the Royals (Bloodline Families) but the government and Education ministry. Here’s how Joachim Hagopian, who worked with abused children as a licensed mental health therapist before becoming an alternative media journalist, puts it:

Former President Obama and his minions pushed Common Core and his LGBT agenda down our throats through his federalized public education system, willfully harming our children right out of the kindergarten gate with developmentally inappropriate, sexually explicit dogma that’s been damaging, overloading and confusing recent generations of young Americans toward gender identity issues that commonly manifest as confused gender roles, sexual acting out and interpersonal relationship barriers that reflect a normalized cultural and sexual pathology and dysfunction. Obama’s statist attack on both family and parental rights along with religion is but part of the elite’s massive mind control operation to further its sinister agenda. (source)

It should not come as a surprise that the latest en-vogue Royal couple to get pregnant should take center stage in soft-pedalling child-raising strategies that can lead to dysfunction, and not only because of the tremendous influence that their opinions on child-raising have in the public domain. As detailed by a former Illuminati bloodline family member in ‘Svali Speaks’, child abuse is in-bred in Illuminati bloodline ‘Royal’ families, an essential part of their Satanic programming that they believe has helped them retain power in the world over countless generations. And these are the very people behind an enslavement agenda that is advanced by an increase in gender confusion in our society.

The Takeaway

At the highest levels, I believe we are all souls that are not tied to a particular gender. That being said, in healthy, vibrant civilizations, the Divine Masculine And Divine Feminine are seen as the source of life. These are great energies that are to be aspired to, not denigrated and emasculated. Thus, while we can fully agree that there is no point forcing people into stereotypical ‘roles’ that don’t suit them, and that every single individual in society has equal value, that does not mean we should suddenly discourage men from being masculine and women from being feminine. Any efforts to do so are likely grounded in an agenda to destabilize a society for the purposes of controlling it.

It is important that we consider that this new vogue trend to raise children as ‘gender fluid’ may simply be one branch of ‘the elite’s massive mind control operation’, one that has already led to an increase in gender confusion and emotional distress among our children. Using our own instincts and discernment about what is best for our own child’s health and well-being, rather than paying attention to new and dangerous parenting catch-phrases promoted by public figures, many of whom are a part of an enslavement agenda, is the best way forward.
