How to train your dreams for problem solving

Do you have a problem you can't seem to find a solution to? Do you have to make an important decision but feel stuck and can't make up your mind?

Believe it or not you can use your dreams to solve a particular problem and find creative solutions to your dilemmas.

Intentionally trying to dream about a particular problem is called "dream incubation". This technique was used once by the Ancient Greeks to try and find cures to their illnesses. In modern times Western Psychology uses it a bit differently, here's how:

  1. Summarize your problem in one sentence and write it down on a piece of paper or notepad.  Put the piece of paper on your bedside table.  Keep a pen and paper handy together with a flashlight.
  2. Optional: if you have  any objects associated with the problem put them on your bedside table or somewhere you can see them while lying down. 
  3. Before going to bed read the piece of paper and concentrate on what you want to solve for 5 minutes or so.
  4. Once you're lying down in bed visualize the problem as vividly as possible and condense it into one single visual representation / image
  5. Optional: picture yourself dreaming about the problem , waking up and then writing down the solution on your notepad
  6. Tell yourself aloud 3 times that you want to dream abut the problem and then repeat in your mind as you drift off to sleep.
  7. When you wake up lie down quietly before getting up. Write down whether you remember any trace of a dream and if so invite more details to return. Move as little as possible from the original position you woke up in. Write down any impressions. 
  8. Repeat this procedure every night. You should get results within 1 week.
