Have you ever wondered about your dreams or why you don't have any control over them? Well I came upon an interesting method of using your dreams to your advantage.
Lucid dreaming is the method of training your brain to make it realize that what ever is happening to you in a dream isn't real. Once your brain realizes its just a dream, you can take full control of your dream.
Imagine having the ability to dream up anything you like. Other people that have reached that level of lucid dreaming said they were sometimes late to school or work because they prolonged their own dreams. In there dreams, they could use their imagination to no limits and experience things they never could in the real world. It's even said that you can use lucid dreaming to resolve real life problems in your dreams.
So how do you train you brain to lucid dream?Well one of the steps is to write down every detail about your regular dreams as soon as you wake up. Since it's fresh in your memory, it is recommended to write everything down write away because later in the day you will forget it. Another step is to pinch yourself during various time of the day, and make sure to tell yourself that you are awake. This way your brain starts to realize what is real and what isn't, and give you more chance to taking control of your dreams.
The reason people cannot realize they are dreaming while they sleep, is because the logical side of the brain is shut down completely, while the creative side takes control and hallucinogens are released by your brain in order for you to think anything you are seeing or feeling is real.
This is just a brief description of lucid dreaming, and much information can be found all over the web. Anyways, happy dreaming!
