Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is being aware you are dreaming while in a dream. Lucidity usually begins when the dreamer realizes that the experience is not occurring in physical reality, but is actually a dream. Often this realization is triggered by the dreamer noticing something that is either impossible or extremely unlikely in real life.

If the average person spends 8 hours a day sleeping, and lives an average lifespan of say 75 years, then they have slept nearly 25 years of her life away. Can we get more out of all those years than just rest? With lucid dreaming that's a very real possibility, but before being able to control your dreams you have to be able to recognize that you are dreaming. Once you are aware you are dreaming you can alter your dreams and dictate what happens.

Lucid dreaming is an amazing skill, it gives us direct access to the vast unconscious mind, the collective knowledge and experience of our entire lives. Whether you've always wanted to sit on top of the pyramids, take off like superman, or maybe just having some time to yourself to sit back on a tropical beach with a cocktail in hand, literally anything is possible in a lucid dream!

Lucid dreaming also provides an environment that allows you to explore and develop your mind, to overcome fears, and is a great tool for enhancing your learning. When hearing about lucid dreaming for the first time, people often ask, "Why should I want to have lucid dreams?, What are they good for?" If you consider that once you know you are dreaming, you are not restricted by the rules of society or even by the laws of physics, but only by your imagination, then the answer to what lucid dreaming is good for is either extremely simple (anything) or extraordinarily complex (everything).
