Releasing Anger Through Lu...

I had a series of dreams last night. As usual, they were largely semi-lucid dreams.  One particular dream stood out from the others and was among the more lucid of the set.  In this one, I got a chance to totally unload any rage, anger, and disappointment I had built up in me. I found myself in a music classroom setting.  I’m not sure what lead me there, but the dream just sort of started with the...

Is Lucid Dreaming A Sin?

I have a personal interest in lucid dreaming and so I do my own research and experiments.  I like to share my findings and give my opinions and get into discussions about this topic.  I recently ran across a question asking, “Is lucid dreaming a sin?”.  My immediate reaction to this question was disappointment and frustration. To me, this question is very annoying.  There is no way to answer...

Is Lucid Dreaming Real?

I see this question asked from time to time and it always kind of puzzles me.  However, I can understand why someone would ask, “Is lucid dreaming real?”.  To someone who has never experienced it and has heard someone describe it, it must seem pretty unbelievable. From my own experience, I can tell you that, yes, lucid dreaming is absolutely real.  You don’t have to take my word for it...

Using Meditation To Induce...

Meditation can be used as a type of lucid dreaming induction. To become better at lucid dreaming, it is necessary to focus the mind to some degree in order to be prepared prior to dreaming.

Is Lucid Dreaming Dangerou...

The short answer is “No”, however, it also depends on your definition of “dangerous”.

Lucid dreaming is merely the realization that one is dreaming. That alone is not dangerous. People sometimes confuse lucid dreaming for other sleep activity such as astral projection or out of body experiences (OBE’s). Venturing beyond lucid dreaming may be considered as having more of a risk, but that is for another post. For this post, let us focus on lucid dreaming.

Active vs. Passive Lucid D...

There are two main types of lucid dreaming. Active Lucid Dreaming is when the dreaming takes control of a dream and makes decisions that alters or guides the dream. Passive Lucid Dreaming is when the dreamer realizes they are dreaming, but continues to remain at the whim of the dream. In other words, the dream does not attempt to control the dream, but rather just witnesses the dream.

Smile To Keep Lucid Dreami...

Smiling can help you to stay in your dream and allow you to keep lucid dreaming longer. It is something that has worked for me for years. Smiling releases endorphins and serotonin into the body which are “feel good” chemicals that help you relax. Sometimes the content of dreams can cause the dream to become afraid or excited which releases adrenaline into the body which can easily cause the dreamer to awaken.
