Brain research has found that lucid dreaming acts as an intermediate state between sleeping and being awake. Consequently, lucid dreamers can manipulate their dreams to a much greater degree than those who are simply aware during the REM stage of sleep.
Lucid dreaming is not always easy to achieve, but if you make it a habit, it will grow easier over time.
Here are 5 incredible benefits that come with lucid dreaming, and bonus diet tips for you to help induce them easily.
- Lucid Dreaming Enhances Your Awareness
Although lucidity isn’t related to the quality of your dream or how real it feels, it does factor in a lot with how much you are aware while dreaming. Awareness here is referring to consciousness and awareness of the dream world as if one were living in that reality. Lucidly means being conscious or awake; a full understanding of an activity, situation, problem, choice, etc.; acting with intention and confidence; mentally sound (as applied to mental disorders), and being highly self-aware.
Lucid Dreaming results in improved self-awareness both during dreams when one realizes they are not awake and while awake because there is increased focus on their thoughts when active within the dream world.
- Lucid Dreaming Can Help Your Conquer Fears & Phobias
Lucid dreaming has the power to help you conquer your fears and phobias because it gives you a chance to face them in a simulated mental environment.
One of the first things that people notice when they enter a lucid dream is how real everything feels. If there are any situations or issues that give you nightmares, then facing those scenarios in a lucid-dream state can help you devise a sub-conscious coping mechanism. You can conquer your fear, or at least learn to co-exist peacefully with the worst form of phobia.
Many people have overcome their anxiety and stress triggers of real-world fears (like fire, insects, relationships, etc.) by experiencing these scenarios in a lucid state.
- Lucid Dreaming Can Boost Your Creativity
Lucid dreaming is a great way to be more creative in your dream world. You can create, design, and even engineer objects and buildings you want to see become a reality.
When you are lucid within your dream, you have the ability to mold it into whatever you desire. You can do anything that comes to mind! If there is something or someone that seems out of place in this world, just change it. There’s nothing holding you back from making changes for sanity’s sake.
Lucidly creating conversations with characters and beings always leads to some sort of revelation which oftentimes will stimulate creativity further than before because you learn and acquire new information during these interactions.
In fact, many painters claim to have been inspired for their greatest works by lucid dreams.
Want to start practicing conscious dreaming right away?
Here is our bonus diet tip to help you dream lucidly. These special diets regulate our biological processes to help trigger waking awareness within the dream.
Caffeine: Caffeine is an element that helps to make your mind alert during the daytime. It energizes you and gives a power burst while working at night as well. In the case of sleep apnea, caffeine can be consumed regularly for preventing it from happening while sleeping.
Cheese: This food item is known to contain Tryptophan which converts into serotonin when digested in the body which can drive away sleepiness and induces Lucid Dreaming sleep cycles naturally.
Vitamin B6: Another source of natural lucid dream inducement. It helps to convert Tryptophan present in nutrient-rich food items like cheese, milk, eggs into serotonin that induces lucidity during sleep.
Pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds are a good source of Zinc and Magnesium that induce a Lucid dream state.
