Lucid Dreaming has been the topic of much debate in the last 5 years or so, with the rise of it’s popularity on the internet, but is it safe? It’s a fairly old skill, people have been doing it for thousands of years across all types of Civilizations, so what are the facts?

Is it a dangerous thing to do? Is lucid dreaming bad?

There are a few small dangers, but they’re not really dangers in the same way that diving with sharks, climbing a tree, or train surfing are. It’s a very tiny risk/danger, but if you’re interested in knowing what the dangers of lucid dreaming are, here they are for you.

Dangers Of Lucid Dreaming


Is Lucid Dreaming dangerous?

Well, it’s hard to say, but it’s certainly not as dangerous as a lot of other things you do every day. The ‘danger’ so to speak, is a tiny danger that you’ll enjoy it too much, as well as a few other things. We’ll cover these here.

Difficulty distinguishing between reality and dreams


It can become a little difficult to tell the difference between dreams and reality. Not in a literal sense, but, for example, forgetting whether a memory was in a dream or in fact, real.

If you explore a city you know well in a dream, and find something, or talk to someone and nothing is unusual about the experience, you may then remember it as having actually happened.

Is lucid dreaming dangerous?

This is not a major problem, but as long as you actually write down all your dreams in your dream journal, you can always go back and check if you’re not sure about something.

With time, you’ll get used to telling the difference, and you’ll be able to remember the context of the experiences, but if you’re relatively new to Lucid Dreaming, this is a small danger.

You might get addicted to dreaming


This could mean you’ll want to wake up later and later in order to keep going back into the dream world. This is probably the worst danger, but if you have a job or other commitment, you’ll have to just get up anyway, and wait until the following night for another dream.

In all honesty, it’s not that addictive, and will be more of an active hobby/fascination as opposed to an addiction. It is exciting, and you’ll want to keep having Lucid Dreams, but if you ever wanted to stop, it’s possible.

Just stop doing your reality checks and writing your dreams down. But why would you want to stop? Dreams give you such an interesting insight into your mind that it would be silly to give it up.

People may find it weird that you Lucid Dream


Lucid Dreaming is not something that is accepted by everyone yet. There are lots of people, (usually the less intelligent) who don’t believe Lucid Dreaming is possible, and will criticise you for talking about it. If you try and explain the skill to someone who’s never done it before, they likely won’t believe you and may think you’re a bit weird.

This is not something that is your fault, and it’s not really a danger, but it is something to consider before you share your latest Lucid Dream. There are lots of places to share your dreams where you can get support and a decent conversation, because if you tell anyone and everyone about your new skill, you may freak them out a little bit.

World Of Lucid Dreaming

Lucid Dreaming for All

Meeting with spiritual beings?


One of the most widely known ‘dangers’ of Astral Projection and, supposedly, Lucid Dreaming, is meeting spiritual entities.  Now, this is all down to your beliefs, we here believe that Astral Projection is entirely possible, although the degree to which it’s possible is not known yet.

For all we know, Astral Projection could just be a very vivid and focused Lucid Dream that starts from you focusing and performing a W.I.L.D. It’s impossible to know. It needs to be mentioned as one of the dangers of Lucid Dreaming though, because some people claim to have a Lucid dream and become really scared by their experiences and claim to have met spiritual entities who caused them harm in the dream and distressed them in reality.

There is not any widely accepted proof or documentation of such happenings, rather individuals commenting on forums, for example, sharing their bad experiences and warning others about Lucid Dreaming. Controlling your dreams in this way can be scary, but that doesn’t mean it’s dangerous. It’s important to remember that everything that happens in a dream is in your mind. It’s not real.

At this point in time, there is no evidence to suggest that anything like demons, possession, or any other Lucid Dreaming ‘dangers’ are real. It’s not something to worry about and you shouldn’t let it put you off. A few people will tell a few stories about their experiences which may scare some, but in reality, the skill is not dangerous, in fact, it’s quite the opposite.

So, Is Lucid Dreaming Dangerous?



Lucid Dreaming is not dangerous.

Although some people would like you to believe it is, maybe they’ve had a bad experience, or maybe they weren’t even in control of their dreams to begin with. It’s not dangerous, and you have nothing to worry about when you try to Lucid Dream. There are some things to be wary of, as with anything, for example it can be scary.

This being said, Lucid Dreaming is not dangerous and Astral Projection shouldn’t be considered dangerous either. It’s all in your mind, whatever you think or believe will become real in the dream, therefore the only thing you should consider is how much control you have over your mind and thoughts.

Enjoy your Lucid Dreaming adventures!
