Our dreams may be a representation of our psychological and physical state.
But most people tend to forget or not pay attention to their dreams. Dreaming has an exceptional power to make us completely self-aware. It is very important to try and analyze your dream visions, your actions and the reason you encounter specific people in your dreams world when you are awake as it can help you discover secret aspects of your current situation.
Lucid dreaming happens to almost everyone at least once in their lifetime. In order to understand its power and develop the skills to make it happen regularly, one has to practice experimenting with consciousness. When we are experiencing a lucid dream a small part of ourselves is awake and aware of the fact that we are dreaming. And so, we can have total access and control on the structure of the dream but also to the dream narrative. Here you can read 5 facts about lucid dreaming that can help you understand yourself to a deeper level.

1. Dreaming is a thing. And so is lucid dreaming.
As we say, simply believing in dreams and their power could change a life. Could be yours. Could be someone else’s, if you tell them your dream content. Could be…anything in your wildest dreams. Carl Jung, Edgar Cayce, and Freud will all say, “Yes, dreaming is a thing.” What you do with that information now, that is all up to you.
Lucid dreaming is a thing too. Now we know that everybody dreams, and just about anybody that you speak to will testify to that and say “Yes, I remember a dream where such and such happened. It happened as a child and I don’t really remember my dreams anymore.” Every human can recall an anecdote that provides enough scientific data to explain that yes dreams a thing. Lucid dreaming is too, but we as humans get caught up in trying to over-understand the concept, and thus we experience this magical event less often than we do our every day or every night dreams.
2. Everybody dreams a lucid dream.
Lucid dreaming is the act of dreaming, and knowing that you are dreaming. So you are having a dream, while you are asleep, but you aren’t really asleep. You are “lucid” enough to know that while you are “mostly unconscious”, a higher level of cognition has kicked in and you are also somewhat “conscious” at least to the extent that we call lucid enough to realize you are dreaming. There’s a very small part of you that is awakened, that realizes what is happening. And because you are lucid then yes, you can then control certain elements of your dream. That’s why it is so exciting!
And yes it happens to all of us if we really want it to. A study of 2004 undergrads in Germany revealed that 82% of the dreamers reported a lucid dream experience at least one time in their life. Researchers like Cayce and Jung would say, knowing that it’s happened is the first step in making it happen again, and more frequently. Japan replicated the results of the 2004 study with 2008 undergrads with another alarming finding. At least 19% of those participants reported they were lucid dreaming at least once a month! Being open to the possibilities is the first step in replicating those results in yourself as well.
3. Lucid dreaming is not actually a rocket science.
It is a science no doubt. Decades upon decades of peer reviewed studies suggest that it is a science indeed. And because it involves the brain, it is not an exact science by any stretch. That being said, there is enough data on the shelf to suggest that every human does it. Some are simply better at recall for whatever reason. They may be studying lucid dreaming and experience it more via day residue exposure more.
Or some people may just be more open to all experiences and find lucid dreaming simply a matter of fact, because that’s who they are. They lucid dream a bozillion times a month, and those are the lucid dreamers the actual rocket scientists want in their labs. For research purposes. But you don’t have to be one of those to experience it. It doesn’t matter who you are. If you study it, if you don’t, or even if you don’t care. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to lucid dream. Basically, you just need to want to, and that begins to send the brain signals and the higher vibrations in motion…
