Have you heard of lucid dreaming and wondered what it was? Well, this article explains it in great detail. The act of lucid dreaming is the ability to be able to consciously take over your dreams. What this means is a person who is in the act of lucid dreaming can “wake up” and take over their own dreams.
Lucid Dreams Feel Extremely Authentic
When you are in the act of lucid dreaming, your dream feels extremely authentic. This means that everything you see, feel, hear, and taste in your dream feels very real, but you are actually in a fantasy realm. The ability to do this allows you to explore your dreams like they are your own personal virtual reality. Sometimes these tangible dreams provide you with better awareness than you have in your actual life. For instance, during this dream state, you may experience 360-degree vision or be able to exist in two different places at the same time.
No Physical Laws while you are Lucid Dreaming
During a lucid dream, there are no physical laws. This means anything you can conceive during this time has the possibility of coming true in your dream. You can fly like your favorite superhero, have a relationship with a sexy actor, or relive a special moment from your past. However, this type of dreaming isn’t merely wish fulfillment; instead, it is a chance for you to interact with your subconscious.
How Lucid Dreams are Different than Regular Dreams
Lucid dreams are different than regular dreams in several ways. First, the environment, themes, symbolism, plot, and characters in a regular dream are created by your unconscious mind. These images are created by conceptual form and experiential memory. Whereas lucid dreams are created by willfully creating desired actions in an unconscious setting.
