Lucid dreaming is a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming while you are dreaming. Like a personal virtual reality, lucid dreaming’s potential for creative play and joyous pleasures seems infinite. You can fly through space, have dinner with historical figures, cast spells like Harry Potter — all in the safety of your inner dreamscape.
And the potential of this unique state of consciousness goes far beyond simple, curious fun!
Lucid dreaming can be used for deep personal and spiritual growth — in fact, some forms of Buddhism see the practice as one of the six pathways to enlightenment. Proponents use lucid dreaming as a tool for inner knowledge and problem solving, to support the experiences of waking reality, to overcome emotional blocks, to direct healing intent to physical ailments, for rich personal creativity, to explore the Self, and so much more!
