First few dreams induced by your mere will to have the experience is only the beginning and this is the technique to start learning what you do not know.
First and the most important is to look for experiences and articles from other people advanced in lucid dreaming. But there is a simple solution if you do not want to trust other people, that they might be fantasizing on a subject. It is to create your own dream guide once you have succeeded to awaken inside your dream.
What is a dream guide?
From the occult point of view, it is called a servitor. It is an entity which manifests from the will and action of a person. It is even possible to create your dream guide while you are physically awake. But that is another subject that will be covered in occult articles, specifically about the sigils, servitors and other entities.
In lucid dreaming terms, a dream guide is something that is manifested inside your dream and helps you with the information you did not know beforehand. This entity appears as a familiar figure, an animal or anything that resembles importance to you. It could manifest itself as a jester if it helps you to listen more clearly, depending on a situation and your own being.
Dream guide will be using your subconscious to take the information you have known, but have forgotten during this life. It also allows you to connect to collective unconscious of other people and pull out the important information regarding your desire, or a goal whilst having a vivid dreaming experience. To get a proof that it is true, you have to go not far, but to ask yourself. How is it possible that something inside of you that resembles a known figure, knows about you more than yourself?
So there are multiple tests to prove yourself the legitimacy of the phenomenon. While reading other people experiences you will not get the answer. It is because it is a personal experience to the extent, that it appears depending on your behavior, your thoughts and your own being in this life.
How to summon a dream guide?
Congratulations on having your first willful lucid dream! But now you might be stuck as to what you want to achieve next? Sometimes when we are awake in a dream, it is hard to find the scope of attention for detail. As long as you are holding yourself in that state, it is important to have set of goals before you awaken in your dream. This would help to proceed for further exploration on the topic and that is where a dream guide becomes handy.
Instead of flying around in chaos, casting spells and summoning buildings or planets in the sky, take the responsibility of your actions. It is very easy to summon a dream guide and here is how.
When you awaken in a dream, look at your hands and focus on the motion of the touch. Touch both hands and begin to rub them together. This will help you to gain focus over the thoughts and then you will have to think and ask for a dream guide to appear behind a wall. That is because it is easier for the logical part of our brain to summon something from behind a wall as it would not appear out of nowhere.
You can even give him or her a name, body features or think about some famous person that resonates with you personally. It will be much easier if you can think about a person who is friendly and helpful to you. Dream guide will appear in an instant, behind a wall and might just say hello to you as you greet the entity.
Help you can receive from a dream guide
It is advised to have a ready set of questions before you go into the dream state, because it will clear the confusion and help with your focus of attention. From that point it is very easy to have a conversation with your dream guide as long as you keep your dream vivid enough.
Ask anything and everything, you will get the answers. Some of the answers will be known to you, but some of them will make you question if your dream guide is an external being communicating to you. Experience becomes the proof that known can become unknown and it helps to expand your horizon and research into the subject more in depth.
The subjects can vary: if you want to know how to fly, summon planets, learn to sing or find love in life. These questions will be answered in a manner. Sometimes symbolically, or in an abstract philosophical sense. You will have to work with your dream guide multiple times until you learn the language.
It is a direct access to your unconscious world, which consists of any information that is collected through the human history. Depending on the scope of a situation, you might even meet some relatives as your dream guides and they might tell you the secrets you have not known prior to the attendence of their spirit.
A few more tips working with dream guides
You can have multiplicity of dream guides, following you through the experience. You might even get the chance to experience the conversation between the two dream guides. This will allow you to reach beyond the understanding of what forces define them.
To get to know your dream guide and have it appear more often, ask the questions:
- What is your color? Green is a helper type, red is your passion and conqueror, blue is the color of a scientific helper and yellow helps you with the ideas. There are more colors you will have to learn by experimenting.
- What is your name? If it is obvious to you who it is, and it says a different name, you can learn to shapeshift your dream guide to fit its personality. It will help you to bring out more out of the experience during the contact.
- What is your intention? It is like talking to a summoned demon or an angel. You might never know what have you succeeded in summoning. You might be surprised to know that it is an entity from the astral world.
Experience is the key in everything you do. These are the listed points that are very common and follow the pattern. You will not lose anything by asking the important questions getting to know your dream guide. It is possible that you will build a relationship and receive help during your awakened life.
