I enjoy sleeping much more, and I get better sleep. I used to have insomnia, but learning about the sleeping state and different techniques for relaxing allowed me to overcome it.
Dreams are a playground - even when I don't become lucid, I enjoy remembering them in the morning, and it improves my mood.
It's helped me connect with people and feel like I have contributed something meaningful to their lives. I love to teach people about lucid dreaming and help them out if they're struggling.
Am I Dreaming?--------------------------------------------------------- ?gnimaerD I mA
I've heard of others using it to practice public speaking, overcoming fears, and many other things like that. I haven't used it for those purposes yet, but I think it's a good idea.
It's also a form of escapism. Some people see "escapism" as a bad thing; your real life must suck if you have to escape it... but that's not what it's really about. Why do people bungee jump or skydive - they want to feel something different - something impossible maybe. That's what flying dreams are for Lucid dreamers are adventurers.
I also like talking to my subconscious inner self and probing for answers in my dreams. Like a live dream interpretation, only more powerful because you can ask for specific information. I feel like I can verbalize inner feelings which were on the tip of my tongue, but somehow unable to acknowledge. It's made me think more deeply about my own psyche and patterns of behavior.
In future I have plans for my lucid dreams too. There is so much to explore! I want to focus on finding a reliable Dream Guide who I can call into existence whenever I need, and also visit more real world places in my dreams to see how they match up - maybe try to re-experience childhood memories and access my child mind and talk to her, to change how I think now as an adult.
I have also had a few vivid dreams in cartoon (watching The Simpsons helps!) and I want to see how this changes when I become lucid. I was once in candyland in cartoon - wish I had been lucid then!!
I also think the dreamscape is like an interface to something more interesting waiting to be discovered and that is what really attracts me.
I would be very sad without LD and not feel complete
