Find the most frequent questions about lucid dreaming
Yes, it is! It was proven multiple times.
In 1975, the British parapsychologist Dr. Keith Hearne prooved it scientifically, for the first time.
Afterward, in 2009, another study found that lucid dreams enable us to tap into even higher states of consciousness than waking reality!
There were even more researches, so if you are interested, find out more about it here.
The benefits of lucid dreaming are quite extraordinary. Some of the greatest uses:
Lucid dreaming it’s not dangerous. However, there are some small risks, that you might take into consideration, including:
As a beginner, you should start with a few essentials:
After you are habitually doing all of the essentials above, you can try a lucid dreaming technique, such as:
Sleep paralysis is a normal and natural process. It happens every night to keep us from acting out our dreams. Lucid dreaming itself doesn’t cause sleep paralysis.
However, a very powerful technique, called Wake Initiated Lucid Dreams (WILD) can involve sleep paralysis. It is a very effective way of becoming lucid, since the technique keeps your consciousness awake while your body is falling asleep.
A lot of people experience this state, simply because it is quite normal.
While we sleep our body enters in REM atonia. REM atonia is crucial for healthy sleep!
This state keeps our body to stay still, while we sleep and dream.
The truth is that sleep paralysis is the IDEAL ”portal” to lucid dreaming.
The best thing you can do is to INFORM yourself:
Anyone who dreams can learn how to lucid dream!
The truth is that even if you don’t remember, we ALL dream, each and every night, multiple times!
(with rare cases of people, struggling with some sleep problems and suffering from specific conditions)
Lucid dreaming is a skill, so with the right approach – anyone can learn it! The point is to train how to recognize when you are in the dream world.
It will work differently for everybody! To give you an estimation:
The truth is that it really depends on you!
Maybe you will have your first lucid dream the first week, or perhaps you will experience it at the end of the 4th week!
Different factors will play a huge role, such as:
Similar to the previous question, there isn’t a straight answer. It will feel different for everyone. In general, it is very exciting and extremely empowering!
At the beginning, some of you might have very vivid lucid dream, but for others, it can be not that clear.
Or some might have control over the narrative, while others might be just aware that they are dreaming, without having any control.
Becoming lucid in a dream, and feeling stuck inside the dream is something that you shouldn’t really worry about.
Being trapped in a dream forever is simply science fiction, possible in the movies, but not in real life.
Usually, feeling tired after you wake up is due to the fact that you didn’t have enough sleep.
As a matter of fact, some people report that when they lucid dream, they feel tired in the morning.
It is possible that if you have long, multiple, very vivid and active non-lucid dreams you would wake up drained. Especially if they are emotional or anxiety-producing dreams.
People often confuse lucid dreaming with dream control.
Lucid dreaming does not necessarily mean that you will be able to control your dream.
Yet, you can LEARN to control your dreams, by practicing and being consistent!
Of course – sexual lucid dreams can feel extremely real.
To experience such a dream, you will need a basic level of dream control and the ability to remember your dreams.
In a lucid dream, your mind produces experiences from the real world.
Such dreams are possible, however it is not the easiest thing and it is a tricky action.
