The Art of Lucid Dreaming
Lucid dreaming involves becoming aware that you are dreaming while still immersed in the dream state.
Lucid dreams allow you to be the director of your own narrative. You can shape your dream landscape, interact consciously with dream figures, and even defy the laws of physics.
Exerting control in dreams provides avenues for introspection. You can safely examine your inner emotional world and potentially gain insights into your waking life.
Lucid dreaming can serve as a rehearsal stage. Whether refining skills or problem-solving, the brain’s ability to simulate scenarios helps you prepare for real-life challenges.
