People always wonder, what is Lucid Dreaming? Lucid dreaming means dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming or allowing the person to control their dreams. “Lucid” is the sense of mental clarity. Lucidity usually begins in the middle of a dream, when the dreamer realizes that the experience is not occurring in the physical reality, but is a dream. This can be often found by the dreamer noticing some impossible or unlikely occurrence, like flying or meeting something that no longer exists. Some techniques of lucid dreaming is to keep a dream journal, it will help you to recall dreams. So every time you wake up, write down what your dream was, write what you remember. You would also need to perform reality checks too.
I chose this topic because when I first heard about ‘Lucid Dreaming’ I didn’t know a single thing about it, I didn’t even know that Lucid Dreaming existed. But when I started researching about it, I thought that it was very new and unique. Also, lots of people could’ve not known what Lucid Dreaming was, so I wanted to try to introduce this new topic to everyone so that they can also learn about something new that they never heard of. My brother, who is in college, also did a project based on Lucid Dreaming and he tried to do it. I’ve always wanted to learn more about what he was doing and try to research about it. Lucid Dreaming worked for him, he was able to control his dreams too. It took him several days to make the techniques to Lucid Dreaming as a habit. I also had some unusual dreams, where I was flying and meeting deceased people and I wanted to find out more about it.
I learned a lot about Lucid Dreaming and how it’s worked. I never thought of controlling dreams or doing reality checks, it was a really fun topic to learn about and research. Since Lucid Dreaming was a fun topic, I am now more interested in Wellness more than I used to be and I know that there also lots of other topics that are interesting to learn about. I am going to try to follow the steps of Lucid Dreaming and try to see if it can work for me, it can possibly work for everyone!
