Lucid dreaming is one of the most fantastic experiences that anyone can have. It is something truly unique, and like so many other things, nothing that can be remotely adequately explained with words. It’s possible to discuss, study, contemplate, and theorize over lucid dreaming, however comes close to the experience of conscious dreaming.
Lucid dreams fall on a scale of foggy, vaguely aware and limited memory type lucidity, to pure, hyper-real, HD quality awareness. Over half of the lucid dreams that I have ever had, have been ‘more’ real than waking reality. This is usually a difficult possibility to grasp, as after all, what could be more real and clear than reality? Imagine taking say an intoxicant such as a mild sleeping tablet four times daily. This half real, drowsy experience would be come the real and stable baseline. Now imagine then waking up one morning after a year of this regime back to clear thinking and normal waking reality. How different would it be? How real would it be? How would you explain it to a word full of sleeping tablet addicts? What words could you use that would even come close to explaining the reality that you now lived in?
The number of times that I’ve woken up in the morning after a crisp clear lucid dream to think, wow this is dulled down. In lucid dreaming, you can do absolutely anything you wish. If you want to fly, just imagine it, and bounce into the air. If you want to see someone, just focus on them, imagine them behind you, and then just turn round and they’ll be there. In the first stage of dreaming you are in your own private universe. The only physical laws that apply are the ones that you insist on assuming have to apply from your usual waking reality. The only limitations, are those that your conditioning and upbringing dictates must limit you.
