How to have lucid dreams and change your destiny
Lucid dreaming may occur intentionally or quite by accident. Many often have a lucid dream by
accident and realize they can control the destiny of their dreams. A lucid dream occurs when the
dreamer realizes he's asleep and dreaming and takes control of the dream. It may be to solve a
problem in waking life, control a problem within the dream or simply direct the dream to an
enjoyable experience. Athletes, actors and dancers often practice their avocation during a lucid
Everyone has had a lucid dream at least once in a lifetime. Some people learn very early that
they can control their dreams and later use them for problem solving, control of nightmares or
visualizing a course of action for the next day.
One subject realized early in life there was a possibility of lucid dreaming. As a child, a
reoccurring nightmare plagued her when she slept. One of the nightmares involved a scene from
a battleground. Hundreds of people, men women, children and babies were trying to escape the
battlefield but they had to climb a steep icy slope to get to safety. Night after night, she watched
in her dream as people would almost reach the top and slide back down the slope to the bottle.
She'd awake in tears, beads of perspiration speckling her forehead as she saw babies attempt to
climb to safety and slide back down to the abyss of danger as their parents, grappled and ended
in the same fate.
After almost a month, she decided to create an ending for the dream that saved the people. Up
until that time, she was the omniscient viewer. Now, it was time to take an active participation in
the dream. The dreamer created an ending to her dream. One where she joined the people, had
planes awaiting that dropped lines to pull the people up and away from the war. She actively
participated in the dream and after several nights, the nightmare no longer occurred. At that
point, she learned to control other nightmares she had and eventually use dreaming as a problem
Most people don't record their dreams immediately upon waking. By the time they've had their
morning shower, most of the details of the dream are fuzzy at best. People who use lucid
dreaming as a method of solving problems, however, are different. Often they implant the
problem in their mind before they go to sleep and tell themselves they'll find an answer.
They direct their dreams to the problem at hand; look at the solutions provided in their
subconscious and upon awakening, immediately record the results of a dream. While the first
attempt may not bring an immediate solution, it often brings them closer to their goals. The
dreamer may not control the dream but simply watch, fully aware that it's a dream and use the
information during the waking hours.
Lucid dreaming can occur without previous training. At some point in the middle of the dream,
the lucid dreamer suddenly realizes he or she is in a dream and there's nothing to fear. From that
moment, the nightmare ceases being scary or the pleasant dream becomes even better. People
learning new physical or mental skills often use lucid dreaming to practice routines, learn the
material or solve problems they couldn't during waking hours. It is a tool everyone, with a little
practice, can use to improve his or her life.
