What Is Lucid Dreaming & Why Would You Do it?

Have you have ever had a dream where you became aware that you are dreaming? That was a lucid dream. The reason people want to do this is that as soon as you are lucid, you can then influence your dream. Designing your own dreams is not easy but many with practice are able to do this. Lucid dreaming is an altered state of awareness that has many other benefits.


What Is Dream Work?

Dream Work (Also known as Dreamwork) involves using your dreams to access information, understand yourself better or receive spiritual messages. Most often people will actively try to have dreams and then interpret them. This mystical process can be traced back to ancient times.

How Crystals Can Help

There are a number of crystals for lucid dreaming and dreams that can help. They work best when combined with other methods. I have personally experienced dream filled nights and fully lucid dreams with crystals. Having a clear intention and focus over a period of time will give you the best results. The world of dreams is related to the astral plane and the subconscious mind. Neither of these is very predictable or easy to control.
The following list of crystals can all be used. As always these are just my recommendations and you do not need more than one crystal. Sometimes you will find that one crystal works better for you so you may need to experiment to find your best dream stone.


A Word Of Warning:

Some of the following crystals are very powerful and if you want a peaceful night’s sleep then you are reading the wrong article!

This green form of Tektite is becoming harder to find and more expensive. Moldavite is not for the faint-hearted. It is highly stimulating for dreams, lucid dreaming and astral travel. If you do not feel good holding or meditating with this stone, then it may be too strong for dream work. It can take weeks or months to adjust to its strong energy.

How To Work With Crystals For Lucid Dreaming

There are many ways to stimulate dreams and have a lucid dream experience. All you need is a tumbled stone or raw crystal. If you have a large crystal then place this by your side of the bed so that it is within your aura (see below). You could also place it under your bed where your head is. Just remember not to leave it there if you want a deep sleep.
If it’s not a rare stone you could use a beaded crystal bracelet which can be easily worn while you sleep. The following bedtime ritual can be used with smaller stones. If you have a large crystal you can just touch your Third Eye with it and do the same meditation. If using a Crystal Point, have the crystal pointing upwards on your forehead.


Be Careful Sleeping With Crystals!

A word of warning with placing crystals on your nightstand, under your pillow or in your bed. If your crystal is fragile or expensive this is highly risky. The chances of the stone being pushed out from under your pillow, bed or your hand while sleeping are very high. If it falls onto a hard floor, it will break or smash into pieces…
Even placed by your bed there is the potential of knocking it while sleeping.  If the crystal is a raw, fragile, rare, valuable or expensive then don’t do this. I do NOT recommend placing crystals under pillows or in the bed in this article for this reason. There are plenty of other safe ways to stmulate dreams with crystals in this article, so please try them.

Lucid Dream Crystal Ritual


1 – Before you go to sleep lay down in your bed, close your eyes and take some deep breaths.

2 – Place a small raw crystal or tumble stone on your Third Eye Chakra. Just above and in between your eyes.

3 – Focus on your intention and visualise it glowing and pulsating with its own light.

4 – After a few minutes remove the crystal. You can place it by your bed if it is fragile or place it under your pillow.


Remember to cleanse your crystals each morning to make sure they don’t carry any negative energies and work their best.

    Another brilliant blog. I love reading your books and blogs and feel they help me so much on my reiki/crystal journey. Thank-you so much.

  2. Sonia

    This is really interesting topic and I love how you write about it 🙂
    I have a problem with Angel aura. First, I’m not able to find its name in my language and second- I cant find where to buy it.
    And its so fascinating crystal for me.
    Have a nice day!

      Hi Sonia, these days this is a very popular crystal. If you can’t find it in your local crystal shop, any good crystal website should have some. If you look on Etsy for example there are thousands of angel aura crystals for sale all around the world. Hope you can get one.

    Thanks Ethan. I’ve been extremely drawn to amethyst of late and have had some wild meditative experiences with it. I’m going to try it for lucid dreams

      1. Isis

        Thanks. I asked because it seems to be a stone that encourages visions. Haven’t experimented with lucid dreaming, will have to try this out actively!

    I have angelite, I believe thats the name for it, its a sky blue color. I leave this every night beneath my pillow; I only sometimes use amethyst at night though because I find it is SO strong, and I most certainly cannot get any rest. My question though is, it appears my third eye is very sensitive; when I go to reiki and a crystal gets placed on my third eye it almost feels like someone placed a brick on it. It’s so heavy, my third eye overall is always very stimulated and constantly feels “on” I guess. I am always told to mediate with crystal placed on my third eye, but as described that always proves quite some discomfort. Anyways, does anyone have any suggestions for to alleviate this?
    Thank You, xx.

      I have had a similar experience and there are lots of reasons why this might be but a very sensitive Third Eye Chakra is likely. In this case I would not place crystals here for long periods of time because you may not need the extra energy and it could unground you.

    Hey, I literally stumbled upon this site as I recently broke one of my favourite moonstone bracelets and I was doing some research before I purchased another.

    I get terrible sleep paralysis ALL the time and because of it I feel I’m in a permanent state of exhaustion. Now I’m wondering if wearing it (I never took it off for bed) could have somehow amplified this?

    So I’m wondering if anyone knows of anything I could use to block this from happening or have a more positive/protective power?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there I am wondering what should the intention be for the crystals should it be something like “I energize this crystal with the intent for it to help lucid dream” thanks also I am using selenite crystal under my pillow
