The Number Eleven Putting anything over your eyes, such as a bandana or an eye mask, is a form of reality changing. Then, while envisioning yourself walking up to your DR self, listen to white noise. Then imagine the two of you merging and becoming one. You should awaken in your DR after falling asleep. If this doesn't work, try again later.
As previously said, some of the shifting techniques require you to sleep in order to function, while others require you to stay awake. Obviously, if you use a sleep technique before sleeping, you will wake up in your DR.
The results revealed that three consecutive night shifts shifted the brain's master clock by around two hours on average. Previous study has connected shift work to obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic problems, all of which can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Transliminal experiences, for example, "occur while awake and are more prevalent when the mind is in a calmed state—for example, before awakening and before going asleep," she notes. "As a starting point, the 'instructions' [for shifting] that abound on social media include being half asleep."
Doing something you know will change your reality but doesn't count as waking life, such as playing a video game or reading a fiction book. Research shows that these activities can have a transliminal effect on the brain—that is, they can produce some of the same effects as sleeping.
Here's how psychologist Michael Thaler describes transliminal experiences: "People who have them report feeling less anxious or stressed when they wake up in the morning or before going to sleep at night. They also say they feel like they've had a good time even though they were fully awake during the experience."
So, yes, changing your reality with your mind is sleeping.
Lucid dreaming techniques teach your mind to become aware of its own consciousness. They're also intended to assist you in regaining or maintaining consciousness when you enter REM sleep. To the WBTB:

How to Sleep Soundly While Retaining Clarity
As you go to sleep each night, you may play yourself a simple guided visualization or series of affirmations, which the subconscious mind will pick up on and adopt (or as Maxwell Maltz says, the "servo-mechanism.") As you sleep, the subconscious mind is doing its thing while you sleep, so yes, you can reprogram your mind while you sleep.
What's more, neuroscientists are starting to understand that our brains function differently when we're asleep vs. when we're awake. Memory formation is one area where this difference has been well documented - we learn new information better when we sleep than when we don't. The brain is also better at remembering things when we're asleep than when we're wide awake. This may help explain why dreams seem to contain so much more information than ordinary waking thoughts.
Finally, research shows that simply thinking about changing a behavior can lead to actual physical changes in the brain. Studies have shown that people who think about stopping smoking actually reduce the volume of nicotine in their blood. People who think about eating healthier foods eat more of those foods and exercise more often. As you can see, sleeping well allows your brain to work on solving problems, creating memories, and changing behaviors... all key elements in achieving greater happiness.
