My Quest to Lucid Dream

This may be the most random post I will ever write. Just a warning.
A while back, I read an article about lucid dreaming. If you haven’t heard of it before, Lucid dreams are dreams where you recognize that you are in a dream and then have complete control over what you do. You can read more about it here. Yes, it is as cool as it sounds. I picture it being like a video game that walk around in and have complete control over.
As someone who rarely remembered her dreams, I was intrigued and super envious of people with such a skill. I read a few articles that said you can train your brain to remember your dreams by writing them down. So last November, I began a dream journal. This page also tells you more about some of the methods to begin lucid dreaming.
At first, each entry was weeks apart because I rarely remembered what I had dreamt about. As time went on, my entries got closer and closer together. These days, I have about one vivid dream every few days.
The idea is that if you can have very vivid dreams on a nightly basis, that eventually you may be able to realize you are in the dream and assert control. I’m still working on it and I know it seems like a crazy (and slightly silly) goal but it’s on my 30 before 30 list. 

Can you lucid dream? Do you have vivid dreams?
Do share!

And a Happy Mother’s day to all the Moms out there! 

  • Found this through a blog wormhole: Bri’s post to your 30 before 30 list to this post.

    I have vivid dreams every night, and I always have. I can remember most of my dreams in great detail every morning. I used to lucid dream all.the.time when I was a little girl, but lost that skill as I got older. Would love to regain!

  • I’ve always wanted to lucid dream! I was obsessed with all things mystical as a child and it seemed like lucid dreaming was a gateway to magic. Please tell us about your progress!

    Oh, and “Jessica Who?” sent me. 🙂

  • It’s not crazy at all! Or maybe it is, and I’m just crazy too; but I’ve always loved the idea of lucid dreaming!!
