For many centuries, people would think of dreaming as curses or blessings that we can not fend off or operate. Lucid dreaming, a dream in which a dreamer is aware that he or she is dreaming; they may be able to control the dream by exert amount. In this dream stage, we perform superhuman features that would be impossible when we’re awake. While a person dreams, these wonderful things become a temporality reality. Researchers says that a average person dreams four to six times a night(insert). Many people dream every night without even realizing that their dreams can be controlled. Others might not give too much care about the dreams that they might experienced. Lucid dreaming can turn scary dreams into happy dreams, or happy dreams into more relaxed ones. This method of dreaming can provide the dreamer endless ways to control their subconscious which can provide enjoyable experiences.
Dreaming, although a substantial component of our nighttime lives, remains somewhat of an enigma due to the fact that it occurs while we are unconscious. The inaccessibility of the unconscious mind weakens full analysis and comprehension of dreaming which researchers have been attempting to accomplish. However, over the years many researchers have elucidated many mysteries about dreams, such as when we dream, why we dream, and what we dream about, in order to bring forth an understanding of dreams as well as identify
As we lay ourselves down every night to put our bodies to rest, our brains begin doing something extraordinary. It begins piecing together images, creating scenarios, simulating sensory perception, and adding in emotions and fears. They can make us wake up with a smile on our face or in a cold sweat. Dreaming is such a strange and often inexplicable phenomenon, but something we all do just about every night. People have theorized the process and the utility of dreams for centuries. However, much of the accepted knowledge we have a bout dreams today is still only theory. In fact, hardly anything about the dreaming experience is concrete because it is an experience
When I was doing my research it was a little hard to find good sources that are centered on the science behind dreams. A lot of the information seemed to be pretty old and outdated. That was when I found the dreaming brain by J. Allan Hobson. This author takes a look at the
Relate to Audience: This information may help someone you know or maybe even yourself if you’ve ever wonder about lucid dreaming. IV. Speaker Credibility: I have extensively researched this topic through articles, scholarly journals and websites. V. Preview Main Points: Today I will talk about dreaming and its history, lucid dreaming and teaching oneself how to learn it, and how it has had a positive effect on people.
In (Spoormaker, V.I. et al., 2003), it was their primary goal to investigate the effects of lucid dreaming on nightmares. Therefore, their hypotheses states that lucid dreaming would decrease nightmare frequency along with their other variables, trait/state anxiety, and improve quality of the participants sleep. In this experiment it was found at the 2-month follow up that nightmare frequency had indeed decreased, while quality of sleep had increased only slightly. As for state and trait anxiety, there were no changes. Within this study lucid dreaming seemed to be effective in reducing nightmares however, how effective it was is not clear since it did not change the other variables quite as significantly. Interestingly, the effect of lucid dreaming as a treatment for nightmares was conducted once more three years later by
One of the main reasons that people choose or try to lucid dream is to experience new things. In lucid dreams there is absolutely nothing that you cannot do. Flying, walking on water, traveling to other planets, breaking the law, it is all possible within a lucid dream. In a story told by K.M. Rathdrum, she explains her lucid dreaming
I have always been interested in learning and interpreting dreams every since I was in high school. Out of everything I learned about dreams over the years, the one that really resonated with me the most was that dreaming is our way of dealing with problems from our waking state. For that reason, I chose an article called Relation of Dreams To Waking Concerns by Rosalind Cartwright, Mehmet Y. Agargun, Jennifer Kirkby, and Julie Kabat Friedman. It captured my interest because it goes into depth about how your waking concerns effects your dreaming state. It also goes into detail about Slow Wave Sleep (SWS) and Rapid Eye Movement (REM) and what they have to do with dreaming.
In this post we will see how to lucid dream tonight easily using few simple techniques. Many programs may try to trick you by offering one key method to induce lucid dream but I urge you understand the fact nothing can make you to lucid dream except your own efforts and strong intention.
Dreams are often liberating experiences, fantasies that take people away from the demands of the waking world, especially if they are lucid dreams. Lucid dreams are when someone is in a sense, awake in a dream. The person knows that they are dreaming and can sometimes even manipulate the very fabric of the Dreamscape. Dreams are a very important part of life, humans spend over one third of their lives asleep, but it is all too often that dreams are forgotten or muddled. This study was conducted in order to investigate a possible way to remember dreams more often and to have them be clearer instead of vague and blurry.
Sleep is often accompanied by the hallucinogenic state of dreaming comprised of lucid thoughts which can often seem like real life. Recently recorded studies and experiments have exposed the world of dreaming to physiatrists. Dreaming parallels many life experiences and is unique to each individual person. With the recent observations of lucid dreams and the studies of the REM sleep, this field has vastly improved its understanding and knowledge.
