Lucid Dreaming, Part 1: Your Lost Six Years

You've probably heard of lucid dreams (knowing you're dreaming), but most of us don't have them very often, if at all. Yes, lucid dreaming is a skill that can be learned, but why bother?

The average person spends about 25 years of their life asleep, and about 1/4 of that time is spent dreaming. On average, you will spend six (6) solid years dreaming. That might not seem like a big deal to you, but suppose the doctor told you you have one week to live, but if you do a few simple things, you will live for six years instead. In addition to this, he tells you that during these six extra years, if you're lame, you will be able to walk; if you're sick, you will be able to feel well; and sometimes you will be able to go wherever you can imagine, anywhere in the universe or beyond.

Would you be interested in the six extra years? I sure would, and I think you would be too.

If you answered "yes," then you are actually very interested in learning how to lucid dream, even if you didn't realize it before.

When you learn to lucid dream, and you progress beyond the lighter levels of lucidity, your dream world will become as real as waking reality, except with time, you can go anywhere you can imagine, do anything you want to do (including flying or breathing under water), and create any reality you choose.

If you're facing a difficult problem at work or need some creative insight, you can often find amazing answers inside your dreams. If you need a vacation or just a little escape from waking reality, you can find it inside your lucid dreams.

For most of us, after we go to sleep, we wake up. We lose all that time. But after you become an Oneironaut (Oh-nay'-row-naut: lucid dreamer), instead of losing all that time every night, you will spend much of it having amazing adventures and learning incredible things about yourself and the world around you.

My next few blog posts will be about this subject, and I look forward to hearing about your experiences in the land of dreams!
