There are so many reasons why you should start learning how to lucid dream right now. Below is a list of 5 of the most important reasons to start lucid dreaming today.
We spend 1/3 of our life dreaming, if we say an average person sleeps for 7 hours they are spending 49 hours a week sleeping and about 2500+ hours sleeping every year. We could be achieving, experiencing and learning alot more in this time by using lucid dreaming. We can experience time differently inside a lucid dream which can be a great benefit as some people have had lucid dreams that have felt like they lasted for months and even years.
As we can directly communicate with our subconsious whilst lucid dreaming, you can learn alot more about yourself deep down. You can also practice any skill you want safely and effectively inside a lucid dream, the skill might be something that your trying to develop in waking life or it could just be a random skill you have just decided you want to try and learn. It is also possible to tell your subconsious that you want to change in certain ways, you could tell your subconsious that you want to stop drinking, smoking or anything else you wanted. In a way this is very similar to hypnosis.
The amount of fun you can have inside a lucid dream is practically unlimited, you can do absolutely anything you choose, such as; doing your favourite hobbies, doing things you’ve only wished about doing, fighting, travelling, experiencing the world or something else you would like to do.
