Dream Incubation Experiment - A Mermaid Dream

For this Dream Incubation Experiment, I am going to attempt to incubate a dream where I experience life as a mermaid. I have chosen this dream theme because I was obsessed with mermaids when I was a child and collected mermaid memorabilia and paraphernalia. 

John William Waterhouse, The Mermaid (1901)
Elisabeth Jerichau-Baumann, Mermaid (1873)
Edward Burne-Jones, A Sea Nymph (1881)
Edvard Eriksen, The Little Mermaid (1913, Copenhagen, Denmark)
Disney, The Little Mermaid (1989)

  • Every night, before sleep, I will use a mantra - 'I will have a mermaid dream and remember it when I wake up'. I will recite this repeatedly in my mind as I am laying in bed, falling asleep. This will focus my intention on dreaming about being a mermaid.
  • I will periodically and regularly think about mermaids throughout the waking day and try and expose myself to as much mermaid-themed material as possible.
  • I will use two cues/prompts - a written reminder (which will be read each night before sleep and will be kept under my pillow) and an image of a mermaid which I will save on my mobile phone and look at periodically throughout the day.
  • Every day upon waking I will reflect on my dream memories and then record/interpret and analyse each dream, both on this Blog and in regular Youtube video uploads (Wild Vlogs).

Here are previous Dream Incubation posts & Dream Incubation Experiments I have undertaken on this Blog:
