We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, on average. This is a huge chunk of our lives that many of us neglect to utilize. Did you know when you have a lucid dream you may be “awake” in your dream, but you are still getting extremely restful sleep? People who regularly lucid dream report feeling rested and recharged the next day. So if you are experiencing grogginess and fatigue most mornings, you may want to try lucid dreaming.
Beyond gaining restful sleep, lucid dreaming can be used to work through stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, and any other struggle you are experiencing. Many avid lucid dreamers are so proficient in their skill that they regularly use their dream-world to overcome daily stressors. Imagine, going to sleep knowing you will wake up in a world that your mind has created. And in this world, you can generate any desire, do the impossible, overcome your fears, and these experiences will manifest into your waking hours.
Once you have become skilled at inducing lucid dreams it is now time you take advantage of this euphoric and other-worldly experience. With each lucid dream, you will become more in-tune with your subconscious and your subconscious will begin working for you. Take risks, face your fears, and will your mind to bring everything and anything you want in this dream. With practice, you will find yourself manipulating aspects of your dream that you never thought possible.
You must give the same amount of gravity to your dream-world that you invest in your waking world. This is not to be confused with the experiences within your dream-world that you could not control. Instead, learn to treat your lucid dreams as the psychological tool that they are. Each dream is an opportunity to grow, learn, and experience your true desires.
