This pandemic and the subsequent lockdown over the last year has led to a lot of time for introspection and personal growth. With all of that introspection of the areas I’ve become more interested in over the last year has been the impact that dreams have on my waking life, and vice-versa.
To that end, I decided to start writing all of my dreams down in a journal and analyzing them so I could better understand myself and areas of my life I’ve left unresolved. I originally started out just tracking my dreams, but then quickly grew interested in how I could spend more time interacting with my subconscious while asleep via lucid dreams (and I’ll be honest, having dreams where I can decide to become a superhero is a big bonus.)
For those that are unfamiliar, lucid dreaming is defined as “a type of dream where the dreamer becomes aware that they are dreaming. During a lucid dream, the dreamer may gain some amount of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment; however, this is not actually necessary for a dream to be described as lucid.” (Source: Wikipedia)
