lucid-dreamingIt doesn’t matter if we remember our dreams, one thing to keep in mind is that we all have many dreams during our 6 to 10 hours of sleep a night. What we can say about the dreams that we experienced is that they come in all shapes and forms and can go from the day to day things in our lives to the most interesting and extraordinary ones. Sometimes these dreams can even be on the nightmarish side while other times they can be the most fascinating and exciting and even erotic. Most of the time however, our dreams are just too trivial to remember. How to lucid dream is something that almost anyone can do.

In case one is wondering what is the purpose of having lucid dreams, well one of the benefits is that you will be in control of these so called lucid dreams. You can do whatever you want with them, in order word you are in control. The only limitation is the one that you put on your dreams, or the limit set by the imagination. If you have ever seen the movie “Total recall” where the actor goes to reKall and has the chance to be anything if ever wanted. Lucid dreaming is the same where you can be all you

ever wanted to be in your dreams.

Another name for lucid dream is conscious dream. This is the part where the dreamer is aware that he/she is dreaming and can control the dream and make it go where he/she wants it to go. As a matter of fact, the lucid dreamer is a willing participant in the dream, much like an actor can see himself in a movie or you can see yourself in your own video where you are playing out all the fantasies that you can imagine. Lucid dreaming can become so real and depends greatly on your self awareness while having the dream.

Most of us have had lucid dreams when we were children and realize that they have become harder to achieve as we get older. It is definitely an ability that we had and have lost and can regain through training albeit some people will find it harder to achieve as they get older. There are many techniques on the market that are designed to train you or help you in your quest to attain or experience lucid dreaming, you only have to find what works for you and keep at it.

Lucid dreaming can be used to have fun but it can also be used to improve memories, connect with friends and family that you haven’t seen in ages, act out scenarios that haven’t yet happened, see yourself in a situation that you will eventually be confront with or just plainly be like the kids in Harry potter having all kind of powers at their disposal that they can use as they see fit. When you go to bed tonight don’t forget to make yourself available to the beautiful dreams that you’ll having. It is easier said that done but you will see what we mean. How to lucid dream is about happy dreaming!
