Every false awakening becomes a lucid dream when you know that you are still sleeping but if you are not an experienced lucid dreamer then the dream will most probably collapse and you will have a new dream as another false awakening. If you are experienced in lucid dreaming then you can easily turn a false awakening into a lucid dream but if you are not then you will have to make your mind more aware using few techniques that I am going to enlist below these will allow you to detect a dream in other words they will make you to get conscious inside dreams (which is lucid dreaming) hence you will be able to escape the false awakening loop by discerning the dreams one after other till you are actually awake. 1-Reality Checks If have been having regular false awakenings then follow ritual of performing reality check every time you wake up with sincerity.

According to Stephen King the novelist, he explores the similarities between writing and dreaming. He considers the role of a daily routine, something many famous creators use to centre themselves “in inducing a state of self-mesmerism that produces the paradoxical alchemy of disciplining our minds into unleashing their unrestrained creative potential”. Something King called ‘creative sleep’. Just like sleep shapes our every waking moment, he argues this dozing of the waking mind, shapes our creative capacity by releasing our repressed imagination. In Freud essay “The Relation of the Poet to Day-Dreaming” he analysed how poets are able to write the material they do.
Freud believed that content in the unconscious mind could be disturbing or harmful, so our brain protects us from these disturbing urges, impulses and thoughts by repressing them till they are released through dreams. Other dream theories suggest that dreams are simply there to interpret daily events, perceptions and possibly to retain memories. Possibly even to make different connections
Still other scientists think that our dreams are a way of our conscious to deal with the problems of everyday life, and try to figure out solutions for things that are causing us a great deal of stress. Some dream experts even think that dreams are a sort of prophecy to us, and that they suggest things that will come. The only dream they have no idea how it works is the pipe dream. A pipe dream is a dream in which one is vain hoping, or telling a story. When experiencing dreams people visualize vivid clear images.
Dreams are a series of thoughts and images that occur in a person’s mind while they are asleep. One person might believe that these dreams are random and another could think that they are conscious thoughts or foreshadow what is going to happen in the future. In the novel, Crime and Punishment by Fydor Dostoevsky, dreams play an important role as the story progresses. Raskolnikov has three main dreams that show how he changes throughout the novel. They are all pertinent to the murder of Alyona and even the murder of Lizaveta.
A Spectral Exploration “the artist wishes to express himself and chooses only those forms which are sympathetic to his soul” (Kandinsky 56). Collin Davis proposes in "Hauntology, Spectres and Phantoms" two key ideas about how the spiritual manifests itself in narratives. The first is that texts can include phantoms that “lie about the past.” The second is that texts contain spectral elements that “gesture towards a still unformulated future” (Davis 379). Because “‘all forms of narrative are spectral to some extent’” (Wolfrey qtd. Davis 378) and stories can be “the narrator’s [an author’s] unconscious desire to know the story of his own origins” (375), this method of narrative analysis can be applied to Stage Fright alongside a trajectory of Hitchcock’s life to provide a perspective on Hitchcock that has been under explored by viewers and critics alike.
Why shouldn't you move? In meditation you want to "let go" of the world around you, including your thoughts and also your body. You let go off your body, by getting it to sleep (not your awareness, you'll be awake... almost similiar to sleep paralysis). If you move (even just sometimes and only for a short period) you'll stop your body from falling asleep. What will happen if you endure long enough without moving, is that your body falls asleep while youre still wide awake.
1). Woolf lived during a time when an alternative to institutionalization had started to become available. This alternative, the rest cure, allowed the patient to stay at home with family, but on bedrest. The idea behind the rest cure was to build the nervous system back up through rest and food.
