I see the topic of lucid dreaming come up every now and again. I only learned about it maybe around 5 years ago. But upon learning about it….I realized that I do it.
I don’t remember my dreams all the time and I don’t have lucid dreams all the time, but of course the difference between the two is being able to realize that you are in a dream and having control over that dream. I haven’t been able to control characters in my dreams – but then again, I never try. My dreams are also always in color and sometimes I am able to wake from a dream, go back to sleep(within 5 minutes) and continue the dream.
Some report that their lucid dreams experiences are very powerful and some even traumatic. I haven’t had lasting effects from my dreams but I do remember a couple that were particularly emotional. I was just wondering if anyone else has had experiences like this before.
