Why Lucid Dream or Dream at All?
Every night that we sleep, if we are not dreaming or lucid dreaming then we forfeit up to 8 hours of our life to state of “Sleep Induced Amnesia” denying ourselves the opportunity to participate in one of the greatest virtual reality simulators nature can provide. By becoming lucid and taking control of our dream content we add new experiences filling in this void with epic adventures and rich sensory content.
In my book, “You Are Dreaming” pages 28-30 discusses time in sleep and factors how much time we lose consciously by entering into a dreamless sleep. Nearly a third or more of your life is spent sleeping. The fact is, dreaming is one way to add conscious content that you lose from sleep.
When you learn to dream and also control your dreams, suddenly you have new experiences and vibrant new realities that spring forth filling in this void during sleep. You add content to your life that is both equal or even greater than what you will experience in waking reality, but also open doors to new experiences that our physical world will never provide. Dreams bring your imagination to life allowing you to be the writer, producer, director and star of your own micro-cosmic dream universe. They can be absolutely wonderful experiences, a true gift when you harness the power of your own ability to dream.
Do you often feel that you are missing out on something truly amazing if you do not remember your dreams when you wake up? You are right. You are missing out on a grand adventure where you are a dreamer creating dream realities during sleep as an extension of yourself. Our society often places dreaming in a taboo where we “throw the baby out with the bathwater” missing out on something really incredible and wonderful in the works.
You were born with the ability to dream, which means you can create a world that has 3rd dimensional space, engages all of your sensory perceptions. Why wait for science to invent a virtual reality simulator or a holodeck when you are equipped at birth with natures finest dream generator?
If you think poorly of your dreams, your are thinking poorly of yourself as the one who dreams them. They are an extension of who you are and when you are in control, what you can create will rival anything you have seen in Movies or played in video games. Dreams bring our imagination to life and why anyone would miss out on such a grand adventure means they just don’t know how great the world of dreams can be.
Only you will know the value of your own dreams, and you hold the key to having exceptional dreams. For more resources on dreaming and learning to control your dreams, visit Free Dream Resources
