There are a HUGE load of benefits you can get form lucid dreaming, way too many to cover in a simple blog post, but I’ll try. Here are the top lucid dreaming benefits I’ve found, I’m sure there are more though!
There are many benefits to this…
And if you’re just getting started, you’re probably wondering why you should try and learn lucid dreaming, right?
Well, there are lots of reasons.
There are many PRACTICAL reasons to learn, as well as exciting BENEFITS.
This post is going to talk about the benefits of lucid dreaming, meaning the things and the results you’ll get. The feelings you’ll experience and why they matter to you.
Let’s get started…
Top benefits of lucid dreaming
In no particular order, here are the best benefits of lucid dreaming.
By the way: If you can’t lucid dream yet here’s what I’d suggest doing/reading:
- Lucid dreaming bootcamp: A super effective lucid dreaming course I created to FORCE beginners to have their first lucid dream as quickly as possible
- The top lucid dreaming techniques: A comparison and explanation of the most common lucid dreaming techniques
1: You can decide WHAT to dream about
You can decide WHAT to dream about.
This could mean exploring a new planet, a new country, or even just trying a new type of food without worrying about how it will taste. You can do all of this without worrying about what could go wrong, because you KNOW it’s in your head!
This means you’re able to choose the things you dream about, before even going to sleep. You can even decide what to dream about WHILE you’re in the dream. If you decide you want to explore a jungle, you can!
2: Discover your inner creativity
Get back in touch with your inner child and boost your creativity.
Lucid dreaming lets you tap into unlimited sources of inspiration. Your subconscious mind is capable of imagining and experiencing almost anything, and with lucid dreaming you’re able to do just that.
3: Reunite with lost loved ones
If you’re sadly lost a friend or relative in the past, one of the best benefits of lucid dreaming is you can reunite with that person or people. You can summon them up in your dream, and interact with them as if there were really there.
You’ll wake up with beautiful memories of that person, as if you had JUST been with them. This is a great way to say goodbye to someone if you never got the chance before. Doing this is fairly easy as well, but that’s a topic for another blog post!
4: Remove fears from your mind
One of the most powerful benefits of being lucid is being able to REMOVE fears from your mind.
That phobia you’ve had since you were a kid? GONE. I wrote a guide on removing fears and the steps are really simple. There are only 2 steps to removing fears!
5: Talk to your subconscious
You can talk to your actual subconscious mind through a lucid dream.
This lets you communicate with the inner level of consciousness that is almost always hidden beneath the surface. You can’t do this when you’re awake, because your subconscious mind is too powerful and too complex to even tap into but in a dream, you can!
6: Practice and improve at REAL skills
Did you know that you can actually practice REAL life skills in a lucid dream, and REALLY improve at that skill in waking life.
This was a very surprising benefit I discovered a while ago, when I was learning to drive. I used to do my lessons, and then practice what I’d learned in my lucid dreams.
The result was learning to drive in a fraction of the time it would have normally taken me. This saved me money, time and it meant I became a better driver faster! You can practice many skills in a lucid dream, and improve at them in waking life.
7: Better and more restful sleep
One of the best health benefits of having lucid dreams is that you’ll experience a better, deeper, and more restful sleep as a result. This is great if you’re not a good sleeper, as learning just a few key skills can improve your quality of sleep a huge amount!
8: Have a LOT of fun, for free every night!
This is probably one of the most attractive benefits: Having fun! Lucid dreaming is one of the most fun things you can do. Think about it, you can do ANYTHING you’ve ever imagined, with no fear of it going wrong, or harming you.
Skydiving, climbing a skyscraper, having sex with whoever you want, time travel, epic battles with dragons, it’s all possible. Not only is it possible, but it’s very fun to experience!
You’ll wake up with the beautiful dream memories. There are so many different things you could do in a dream.
9: An unlimited source of inspiration
Inspiration is something lots of people struggle with. It seems elusive and especially people who need to be creative such as artists, marketing directors or writers this is a great way to get inspired.
Lucid dreams provide an insight into your deep levels of thinking. The things that you don’t even know you’ve experienced or remembered are all stored in your subconscious mind, and are all right there for the taking in a lucid dream.
10: No more nightmares!
Do you suffer with nightmares or bad dreams?
Not any longer, because with lucid dreaming, you can stop having nightmares fairly easily. It doesn’t even take that long and you can turn those nightmares into beautiful lucid dreams.
11: Experience things you never would have
Through lucid dreaming, you can do things you NEVER would have been able to do otherwise.
- Climbing a skyscraper
- Flying around like a superhero
- Having crazy sex with celebrities
- Becoming various animals and living their life
And many more crazy things. In fact I wrote a post talking about over 100 different things you can do in lucid dreams. The potential is limitless. It’s like a video game where you can do ANYTHING.
And the best part?
Because it’s all in your mind, it all feels incredibly vivid, and real. Your memories of these things will be the SAME as if you’d actually done them. To your brain, you HAVE done these things.
12: Sleep paralysis is no longer scary
If you know a little bit about lucid dreams and sleep, you’ll know about sleep paralysis.
Sleep paralysis is when your muscles become paralysed, ready for sleep. If you wake up DURING this process, it can be very scary and you’ll see things like the paralysis demon.
With lucid dreaming however, you don’t.
Or I should say, you can more easily CONTROL this process, and turn it into a lucid dream. So if you’re someone who suffers from scary sleep paralysis, lucid dreaming can help you avoid that.
13: Manifest your dreams (lottery numbers)
Many people search online things like ‘how to use lucid dreaming to predict the winning lottery numbers‘.
And it’s NOT possible.
You can’t do it, BUT if you click the link above, you’ll read the article I wrote about it. Because while you can’t predict the ACTUAL lottery ticket numbers, there are ways of using lucid dreaming to manifest your wildest dreams.
You can use lucid dreaming to achieve ANYTHING, including becoming a millionaire, and living on a private island. That blog post tells you how and why it works.
14: Prepare for scary things
Scary things are going to happen in life.
- Being embarrassed in front of your family
- Giving a speech in front of strangers
- Having to confront or argue with someone
- Maybe having a physical fight
- Going to a scary job interview
- And so on…
And even more scary things will happen if you travel to other countries and do daredevil type activities.
But you can prepare for these things with lucid dreaming, and make them LESS scary. By practicing things in a lucid dream, you can actually remove those fears from your mind.
It’s based on a very common psychological technique for removing phobias, and that is to visualise them, and get used to interacting with them. By dreaming about things like spiders, for example, you become LESS scared of them in real life.
15: Get more TIME in your life
Think about this:
We’re all going to be asleep for a third of our lives.
A THIRD. That’s a huge amount of time, and you’re going to sleep during that time ANYWAY.
So why wouldn’t you want to experience crazy things in those dreams? If you’re going to be sleeping for that time anyway, it makes so much sense to just learn how to CONTROL those dreams, right?
The most important benefit of lucid dreaming
The best benefit if that you become the best version of yourself.
You’re spending your time in a GOOD way whether you’re awake or asleep. You’re not wasting your time, and you’re doing the things YOU want to do in your life. That’s worth any price.
I know it sounds like a sales pitch but these are all REAL benefits of lucid dreaming and they all work! It’s such a fantastic skill but loads of people don’t really think about it. It’s easily dismissed as being ‘fake’ or not worth learning.
There are lots of GREAT benefits and reasons to want to learn, so what are you waiting for? I’ve created a study guide in the form an ebook just for beginners who want to get started with all of this. There are lots of things to learn at the start, and you’ve got to practice in the right way.
How to make sure you lucid dream
If you’re really serious about learning to control your dreams and you REALLY want it to happen, you need to build up the HABITS you’ll need to lucid dream. These are very important, and learning the wrong things will mean you’ll waste HOURS.
I created a highly effective step by step Lucid Dreaming BOOTCAMP course that FORCES you to lucid dream. If you don’t lucid dream within 2 weeks, you can get your money back.
Here’s some of what you’ll learn in the bootcamp course:
- Exactly what to practice, which techniques, reality checks, exercises and ideas you should do on specific days for 30 days (and how to do them) so you can just save loads of time
- It’s like I’m taking you by the hand as if I were there coaching you personally (which would cost several hundred dollars and take lots of time). Many students love the bootcamp because it feels like I’m personally helping them do all of this, and making it less confusing!
- Learn why lots of people read lucid dreaming books but can’t ACTUALLY have a lucid dream because they don’t build up the habits they need in the right way. They practice the wrong things that actually stop them being able to lucid dream! (Plus a lot of common lucid dreaming books teach stuff that doesn’t work, you’d be surprised)
- Some simple and effective ways to set up your dream journal properly so you can easily refer back to old dreams, and a simple trick you can use to make sure that you always know what works best for you (Almost no-one does this for some reason)
- The strange but powerful meditation technique you can do to have more lucid dreams every week (and it only takes 30 seconds)
- The most common reality checks and how to do them so you can test whether you’re awake and naturally lucid dream most nights (Even when you’re not putting in much effort, or haven’t been practicing)
- The weird ‘island visualisation’ technique I created to help you drift into a lucid dream much faster than normal, and stay in your lucid dreams for much longer than most people!
- Specific lucid dreaming induction techniques and the BEST way to practice them (This includes the Wake back to bed, The Wake induced lucid dream, the Mnemonic induced lucid dream and lots more, but with my unique TWIST to make them more effective!)
- A way of talking to yourself that will give you lucid dreams and ensures that you KEEP having lucid dreams. It’s almost like you’re training your own brain to have MORE of the experiences you want!
- Exactly WHEN to practice each specific thing! I’ll tell you on each specific day, what techniques, ideas and methods you need to practice or think about on that day to lucid dream. It’s like I’m personally coaching you and making SURE you have a lucid dream!
- And remember, you can do these exercises and techniques in as little as 3-5 minutes per day (Of course, you could spend longer if you want, it’s up to you and how much free time you have, but it can and will work with just 3 minutes per day)
Get the step by step Lucid Dreaming BOOTCAMP course that FORCES you to lucid dream. This will work for you, even if nothing you’ve tried before has worked. Don’t take my word for it, read the huge load of reviews on the page.
