15 ways to prevent wet dreams



How to prevent wet dreams, nocturnal emission or nightfall:

Even though wet dreams or nocturnal emissions are natural but if you're already working so hard by giving up many desires, why let wet dreams ruin your streak and drain your energy?

Below are some steps that you can take to avoid wet dreams, which is also known as nocturnal ejaculation, nocturnal emission or nightfall. 

These steps might be extreme for those who are not practicing semen retention for spiritual purposes. If you're not practicing anything but just want to avoid wet dreams for your own reasons, you can choose your own way of avoiding wet dreams out of the many ways. 

A simple and less extreme way is to just not think about wet dreams and focus your energy and thoughts on something else like a hobby of yours, daily, throughout the day. Doing this will make the mind fixed on one thing and it will not flow towards sexual thoughts even during sleep. But to get established in semen retention forever, the ways listed below will definitely help.


Ways to prevent or stop wet dreams while on semen retention:



Way 1 - Avoid wet dreams by avoiding erotic thoughts.


Erotic thoughts can lead to subtle impressions of desire which will reside in the mind and the mind will try to fulfill them whenever the situation arises. If it does not get a chance, then it will do so through wet dreams. Therefore, avoid any kind of erotic thought at all costs.


2) Avoid sleeping too much.

If you wake up early, just wake up at one go and exercise, run or meditate. Even if you want to do nothing, just wake up and get out of the bed. Don't sleep again because oversleeping will lead to wet dreams. Wet dreams most often happen in the second round of sleep.


3) Avoid eating spicy foods.

Spicy foods generate heat in the body and may stimulate your erotic drive and may lead to wet dreams. But don't worry about it a lot. If you're retaining semen for a long time and your mind is clean, that is free of erotic thoughts and desires, no amount of spicy food can lead to loss of semen through wet dreams. But still, it's better to avoid eating spicy foods if you don't want to lose your hard-earned semen retention streak.

4) Avoid watching porn or any kind of sexually suggestive content. 

If you're serious about semen retention, try to stay away from all kinds of erotic content - mild or not. Even one little peek here and there can lead to wet dreams. While doing semen retention for spiritual benefits, it is not just about saving up the semen. It's a vow that you take for yourself that you will refrain from all sexual thoughts, desires and actions. 

5) Avoid fantasizing about sexual thoughts.

Every thought takes away your energy. Instead of wasting your energy on useless thoughts which are not beneficial for long term happiness or does not benefit you in any way, you can choose to not think about it. This may seem impossible at first, how can one choose what to think and not think? Actually it's possible by practice and a clear mind. If you're doing serious and long term semen retention, no doubt you'll have a much clearer mind and your ability to focus will increase many times than ever before.

6) Keep your mind busy 

Keeping the mind busy on other useful things that might actually improve your life and your future is a great way to avoid wet dreams. It doesn't always have to be something that improves your future. Sometimes, you can keep your mind fixed on simple things like the taste of the food you just ate or the sound of the music that you hear, the starry sky, the beautiful full moon etc.

7) Don't overeat. 

Overeating and sleeping on a bloated stomach often leads to wet dreams. 

8) Don't get stressed.

Avoid situations that can make you stressed. A relaxed and a calm mind will not gravitate towards release of the sexual fluids, even during sleep.

The mind often goes towards sexual release or craves erotic content thinking it will give happiness or it will relieve stress. It tricks you into believing that and that's why people relapse and can't maintain longer streaks of semen retention.

The mind makes you believe that you will become happy and porn or ejaculation will relax your mind. But actually it does the opposite. Instead of  making you happy, it will make you weak and addicted and the circle of unhappiness and turning towards porn or ejaculation will continue. Only you can stop it with your willpower.


9) Relax your mind before sleeping. 

Meditate for longer periods of time. You can use music for relaxing your mind before sleeping. If you are stressed about something, it's better to not sleep without first detaching your mind from the things that are making you stressed. Many people prefer directly sleeping for de-stressing but after you wake up the same thoughts might linger and disturb you. 

That's why it's better to detach your mind from the thoughts and emotions that are troubling you and then sleep. 

10) Take cold showers. 

Cold showers will relax your mind and body and will help decrease the heat in your body. Excessive heat is often the cause of wet dreams, that's why spicy foods and stressful thoughts should be avoided. Cold showers will surely help in controlling heat and it will make you feel relaxed and calm. It also makes you feel fresh and revived and it gives you freedom from laziness.

After the initial days, you don't have to rely on cold showers to avoid nocturnal emissions, your body will automatically remain cool and the mind calm.

11) Don't drink a lot of water before sleeping.

While you can drink as much water as you want during the day, but before sleeping try to reduce the amount of water you drink. Drinking a lot of water will lead to a full stomach and you may get urges to urinate. But during sleep, that same urge may feel a lot like sexual urges and might lead to wet dreams. If we feel thirsty we might drink a lot of water but the days when we don't feel thirsty and sometimes we just tend to drink out of habit is what we should not do and by not drinking a lot of water before sleeping, urges to urinate will reduce to a great extent and it is one of the best ways to avoid and cure nightfall.

12) Urinate before sleeping. 

If you urinate before sleeping, you will feel light and there will be no strong sensations in the genital areas while sleeping or dreaming. By doing just this, you can avoid a lot of wet dreams and it is not even hard to follow on a daily basis.

13) Be careful of temptations 


Even after retaining your semen for a long time, your mind may try to tempt you many times. It may even make you think or believe that all you're doing is useless, but don't give up. Continue your streak with all your willpower. You might have noticed after a wet dream that your energy was much higher before the wet dream. That's why, try to avoid wet dreams as it drains your energy a lot. 

14) Stay satisfied, calm, stable and happy at all times

Staying calm is very important for the mind. To calm the mind, instead of reacting to different thoughts and emotions during the day or at night, just let them pass. If you have recently relapsed or had a wet dream, don't regret but let the thoughts and feelings associated with it pass. Regret will only make the situation worse.

Instead of regretting, you can focus your mind on other activities and stay busy. The way you can achieve mastery over your mind is by practice. It takes time and a continuity without breaking the practice. Controlling the mind will naturally control the semen and it will not try to get out of the body but will stay in the body and will help you by giving energy to improve your life.

Most people report less sleep while doing semen retention. It's because due to high energy they don't feel fatigued and tired. 


15) Meditation - best way to prevent wet dreams

Meditation is the best way to avoid wet dreams. Meditating doesn't have to be forced. You can even meditate while listening to soothing music and calm songs. Or while doing an activity that you love, like reading about something you love or doing some work, you might have noticed that the mind stays focused for a long period of time. That can be also considered meditation. Keeping the mind still and one pointed at a particular thing for a long period of time.

The other way of meditating is letting the thoughts flow and not reacting to them. You can play music in the background while doing this. But the most beneficial way is to make the mind completely blank. It should not be forced. If you let the thoughts flow, at a point your thoughts will lessen and lessen. If you love listening to music, try to focus your mind on the music and merge your mind with it, and get completely absorbed in the music. Doing this practice daily for a long period of time will make the mind free from anger, lust, greed or any other harmful emotions and thoughts which leads to undesirable consequences.



The ways listed above on how to prevent wet dreams will definitely work for you if you believe strongly in it and practice it daily. The key is to practice consistently without breaking your streak. With the excess of energy that you gain while avoiding wet dreams can be used to do productive things like learning a new skill, meditating, studying or for positivity development. 


The energy can be used to cultivate positive thoughts and for removing negative thoughts that makes you feel weak, addicted, depressed and lazy. The thoughts control your life. It sounds simple and easy to control but it is not easy. It is simple, but it takes practice and consistency to cultivate positivity in every step, every day of your life. The thoughts will shape your future and will help you grow to become a better person. That's why try to cultivate positive, stress-free, anger-free thoughts. Long term semen retention will help to achieve that goal along with other advanced spiritual goals.
