Lucid dreams, or spinal dreams, are dreams that we experience when we are asleep, but at the same time we are aware that we are dreaming.
Lucid dreams are most common in people aged 10-19, and they usually decrease as we get older. In fact, adults rarely get to enjoy dreams like this.
Awareness in dreams
Have you ever dreamed, but at the same time realized that nothing in your dream is true? The phenomenon in which you are aware that you are dreaming is called lucid sleep.
Lucid dreams can be experienced on two different levels. On the first level, you know you’re dreaming, but you can’t recognize the event. At the next level, you are fully aware of your sleep, even to the point that you are able to control your sleep.
Being aware of our own dreams can be really helpful and it can also help us in our real lives.
Dreams can help you cope with everyday problems
Many of our everyday problems appear in our dreams. They cause us pain and they remind us of situations we try our best to forget. However, it is not known that dreaming of these problems can lead us to the best possible solution.
Lucid dreams can help us see the problems we face in our daily lives from different angles. Those dreams can help us approach our problems and understand what we need to solve them.
These dreams can thus become an invaluable tool for finding the right path , towards a solution to our problem. But how do Lucid dreams happen?
Lucid dreams encourage imaginative thinking. The mind becomes more active and is able to find solutions to many different problems that have previously seemed impossible to solve. So it could be said that such dreams also increase positive thinking because they allow us to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Increase your self-esteem
As we have already stated, lucid dreams can help you solve your problems and therefore can also increase your self-esteem. This, in turn, has many useful consequences:
- Better ability to concentrate
- Stronger memory
- Creativity is growing
- Relieves stress and anxiety
All of these positive aspects can help you achieve your goal. They allow you to be more satisfied with yourself as you have managed to accomplish things and resolve problem situations.
Such dreams support your professional and creative abilities. They also help relieve stress and anxiety.
If you regularly see lucid dreams, you are definitely one of those people who wake up feeling energized and happy.
Thanks to dreams, you can sleep better and get over your fears
Even if you don’t immediately believe it, lucid dreams actually help us sleep better quality sleep because we are more relaxed when we see those dreams.
So when we are able to reflect on our problems and find solutions to them through our dreams, we can sleep more soundly at night.
Also, if we sleep better, we will feel better when we wake up. So we are able to get the most out of the time we get to sleep.
But what about our fears? Many situations can make us afraid. These can be phobias, traumatic events, or situations beyond our control. Lucid dreams also help solve such problems.
Lucid dreams help us face and overcome our fears
Let’s imagine you’ve seen a lucid dream where someone who would like to attack you is chasing you. Maybe you’ve seen the same dream more than once, and you feel insecure in your sleep. What can we achieve with such a dream?
Because during lucid dreams we are free to shape and control our dreams ourselves, we can, if we wish, give a face to the person who is chasing us, and then we can overcome the fear it represents. If we are able to overcome personal fear in our dreams, we will be able to more easily overcome the uncertainty it causes in our real lives.
These are just a few of the benefits of lucid dreams. So if you are aware of your dreams, we can only congratulate you! You are helping yourself to have a happier and more fulfilling life!
