Lucid dreams are what we experience when we sleep, but which we know are not real.
They are usually more common between the ages of 10 and 19 and decrease as we become adults. In fact, adults can rarely have these kinds of dreams.
Awareness of dreams
Has it ever happened to you to dream and, in the dream itself, to know that nothing was real? Being aware that you are dreaming in a dream is what is called a “lucid dream”.
There are two different levels in which we can experience lucid dreaming. In the first, we know that we are dreaming, but we cannot identify what is happening. In the second, we are totally aware of the dream and are even able to control it.
Being aware of your dreams can bring many useful benefits in life.
They solve the problems of everyday life
Many of our daily problems appear in our dreams tormenting us and reminding us of situations that we would like to forget during the night.
What we don’t know, however, is that dreaming of these problems can help us find the best solution to solve them.
Lucid dreams allow us to reflect on how to proceed with regard to the problems of our daily life, evaluate how we should act and the results we want to achieve.
Lucid dreams become an indispensable resource to be able to choose the correct option with the aim of putting an end to all the problems that torment us. But is it possible?
Lucid dreams force our brain to train, therefore to imagine. The mind becomes more active and is able to find solutions to various problems that previously seemed unsolvable.
We can say that these dreams increase positivity. For this reason, we are able to see the light in the dark.
They increase your self-confidence
As we have said, lucid dreams will help you solve your problems and have more confidence in yourself and in life. This will have several positive effects such as the following:
- Increased ability to concentrate
- Memory is strengthened
- Creativity is stimulated
- They reduce stress and anxiety
All of these positive effects will help you achieve everything you set out to do and feel happier with yourself for having fulfilled your dreams and solved your problems.
Your work and your creative ability will greatly increase thanks to these dreams, which will also help you reduce the stress and anxiety that often oppress you.
If you have lucid dreams assiduously, for sure you identify with the kind of people who always get up full of energy and satisfied with life. Unfortunately, that’s something we can’t control.
They allow you to sleep better and overcome your fears
Contrary to what it may seem, lucid dreams can help you sleep better by helping you relax while you are dreaming.
This is because in the dream you are able to solve problems that torment you. When you think and find a solution, then you will be able to sleep better.
Furthermore, by sleeping better, you will wake up even better, as you have been able to make the most of your sleep hours.
But what happens with fears? There are many situations that scare us, such as phobias, past traumas or other issues that are beyond our control. Nothing lucid dreams can’t solve.
Lucid dreams can help you face and resolve your fears.
Let’s imagine that one of the dreams you have had is about a person who persecutes you and tries to attack you. A dream that can be recurring and that can manifest the insecurity you feel. How can lucid dreaming help you?
Since you can freely reconstruct and orient your dream, if you have decided to face that person who is attacking you and you succeed, then you will have overcome your fear. A personal fear overcome in the dream can help you overcome your insecurity.
These are just some of the benefits that lucid dreaming can bring you. If you are lucky enough to dream and be aware of it, congratulations! This will allow you to have a happier and more fulfilling life.
