Dream question

What is lucid dreaming and what is it used for? Who developed this concept?

Lucid Dreaming is the experience of being concious that you are dreaming when you are dreaming. A guy named Stephen LaBerge (thats an approx spelling) wrote a book- you can find it at amazon. You can also buy these glasses from “mind/brain” stores on the internet that train you to lucid dream. they are goggles that read your REM to determine when you are beginning to dream, then they emit a red flash into your eyes that hopefully is subtle enough to be a cue that your dreaming and not so intrusive as to wake you up. There are various methods for inducing lucid dreaming on your own. One method detailed in the book is to ask yourself every half hour or so (best idea is use an hourly chime on a watch) if you are “awake.” The key is to be honestly critical of the situation, the idea being that if something is sufficiently out of whack, it will clue you in to the fact that your dreaming. I tried this for a while and ended up with a funny result. After a while of asking myself whether I was dreaming, I slowly became completely uncritical of reality and just said “yea yea of course i’m awake.” I actually remembered ex post facto that I had had a dream where I asked myself the question and blew it off like I did in real life. If you do decide to do this, be sure to be actually critical - and it will definately work. Then you have to work on staying lucid without pulling yourself out of a dream. I’ve had many lucid dreams and they are amazing. Once you get good you can begin to chg things in dreams for fun. I simulated what it might be like to be on acid, had sex with Cindy Crawford (she loved it), and constantly flew around- which was the best of all. I highly recommend training yourself to do it. You can find the book on amazon.GL

Sorry, here is the book at Amazon:

Dream Manipulation

Lucid Dreaming means dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming and allows you to guide your dreams. I wish I could learn to do it.
