Does my sub-conscious know more about myself than I do?

Postby Fred » 26 Aug 2012 06:31

I'm new to lucid dreaming, but I was wondering; If I become lucid, and I ask my dream questions, will it know something that I dont?
For example, if I asked "Who do I respect most?" Is it possible it will reply with an answer that I did not expect, and is the reply always true?
Just interested, as I can't wait to become Lucid and be able to ask my dream questions like these.

I think your subconscious DOES know more than you. But that's just my opinion

I do think that your subconscious can give you answers you might not expect or be willing to admit consciously. But I wouldn't say that your subconscious is always correct. You will have to do a bit of exploring to find out how exactly it works for you. :)

Yes, I believe that the subconsious knows more than the concious "you" does. There is a theory for this:
You, the person sitting at the computer reading this post is the concious part of you, the ego. The ego wants and desires, knows much about real life, and has experience with social interations. But the SUBconcious doesn't interact with others and the outside, it only focuses on you, the ego. There for, while your at school, eating, talking, etc., the subconcious is going through your memories, like files, deciding which stay, which go. That is why your subconcious knows more about you, than you! The subconcious is constantly goes through memories, making desicious, and with lucid dreaming, you can tap into that info, and find out more about yourself. Hope this helped! :mrgreen:
