Imagine a world where you can conquer your biggest fears, travel to any location on the planet, and live out exciting, unbelievable adventures. Experience all this and more when you learn how to lucid dream.

A lucid dream is any dream during which the dreamer is aware of dreaming. 

Is lucid dream dangerous? Not at all. Here is a better understanding of how you can benefit from practicing lucid dreaming. 

7 Benefits of Lucid Dreaming

1) Access your subconscious

Imagine a computer that has billions of files with every piece of data about yourself, but 95% of those files are protected by a password.

This is the land of your dreams and if you’re not lucid dreaming, you’re not experiencing most of what is happening in your mind! Imagine what will happen and what you can achieve if you unlock and know all the passwords.

2) Interpret your dreams

Do you feel lost in the symbology of your mind? A falling dream might just be about your fear that you’re losing control of your relationship and a flying dream may be about your desire to be free from that relationship. How do we know what these confusing symbols mean?

Lucid dreaming lets you take a front-row seat to those dreams and experience them in real-time. Learning how to have a lucid dream gives you the password to your subconscious mind and lets you actively seek to understand before your conscious mind has an opportunity to interrupt and confuse you.

3) Conquer your fears

Your subconscious mind wants to help you and creates the “fear dramas” during your sleep, but if you’re not present to witness them, meaning you do not see it it’s hard to really get any benefit from it.

When you have a lucid dream, you get to experience and process those fears right at the moment your mind tries to sort them out.

Many people find a relief from their anxiety and depression after a lucid dreaming experience.

You can even train yourself to have a higher pain tolerance. When you begin feeling pain in dreams, that is a sign of being able to control your dream and manipulate your reaction.

Lucidity is powerful in the dream world.

4) Stop nightmares

We are so afraid of nightmares because we aren’t aware, we are dreaming when we experience them. But imagine, what if you were able to lucid dream during a nightmare experience, you’d know that all of it was in your mind and none of it was real. You would never be afraid of nightmares anymore.

5) Have fun

Lucid dreaming isn’t just about deep, dark and scary stuff. It can be a lot of fun!

Your wildest “dreams” can come true and you can experience them using all of your senses. You can do whatever you want in a lucid dream, and many people study lucid dreaming to live out their wildest fantasies.

6) Practice for real life

Once you learn to control your dream atmosphere, you can practice and rehearse for anything.

Have a big presentation at work? Ready to confess your feelings to someone

7) Solve a problem

Speaking of problem-solving, imagine overcoming your writer’s block or solving a complicated equation during your sleep.

Your brain can work out some incredible stuff while it’s sleeping, but if you’re not there to witness it, you may forget it ever happened.

So go ahead and understand how to have a lucid dream 🙂
