where do you want to go tonight…

tags: , , ,

Lucid dreaming is apparantly quite rare.    Excel has told me that the  10 friends and family who replied to my emailed question ‘do you lucid dream?’ were all wildly over educated, regularly creative (musicians, poets, designers, teenager), and all except 1 are either  not-married  or over the age of 30.   More specifically:

5/10 people do Lucid dream,  including:

  • 2/5 males
  • 3/5 girls
  • 3/3 immediate relatives

It’s fun,   I’d highly recommend it if you don’t already indulge…

    Lucid dreaming is actually part of Tibetan Buddhism and Indian mysticism – the Wikipedia entry you link to has some info on this under the Cultural History section. See also Yoga Nidra, and Ösel and Milam (part of Six Yogas of Naropa).
    Step one for me is probably spending some time getting back into meditation and then seeing if that leds to lucid dreaming.

    I honestly thought that everybody has lucid dreams. I usually enjoy them but I get frustrated at the ones where I’m dreaming that I’m in a lucid dream. They take so much unravelling once you think you’ve woken up. Then realise that you haven’t.

    I don’t remember most of my dreams. That or I don’t dream much, which I’ve been told can’t be. The dreams I do remember though all seem to be lucid dreams.

    I thought only a tiny number of people had lucid dreaming. If anything happens that I dont like, I can go back, and dream something else, or If I get woken up during a good dream, I can find my way back to where I was. Both of my siblings talk in their sleep, but I dont seem to.
    for the stats: Male w/No immediate relatives. ( I have asked them all ).
