Lucid Dreams


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/02/lucid-dreams/

Most often in Lucid Dreams, the person knows that he or she is dreaming and controls the dream.  This is also called conscious dream.  Dreamers often manipulate their experience while dreaming and actively take part in the dream.  These dreams can be vivid and seem very real, depending on the self-awareness level of the dreamer.

There are two kinds of lucid dreams.  The first kind starts off as a normal dream, and then the dreamer becomes aware that he is in a dream.  This is called DILD or Dream Induced Lucid Dream.  The second kind is called WILD or Wake Initiated Lucid Dream.  In wild, the dreamer goes from a fully awake state to a lucid dream without an apparent lapse in consciousness.

Lucid dreams are well researched and documented.  People who suffer from nightmares are said to benefit from lucid dreams.  Training the mind to be aware that it is in fact just a nightmare saw a reduction in nightmare frequency.

Because of lucid dreams, researchers have gathered ways to differentiate dreams and reality.  These methods include pinching ones self, or pinching your nose, looking at the time or mirror and picking up books while dreaming.  Studies have shown that while dreaming, there is no “real pain” and that images and time distorted, pages in books are most often blank or change contents.  These findings help us distinguish reality and dreams.
