I have been partially successfully lucid dreaming for a few years now, they never seem to last more then 2 minutes. In most of my Ld's i realize i'm dreaming in the highchool i graduated from a few years ago always in the same class room. In about half of these dreams I'm having an argument with an old classmate (always one of four different people) that usually ends up in combat. Here is the incredible thing, During the last fight i did something i had never done before in real life, not a crazy flipping ninja technique that would be impossible in real life, but a very practical move from laying on my back that gives me one more option when fighting in real life. If i could stabilize these lucid dreams for longer i believe we can teach ourselves things that would actually me MORE difficult to learn in real life, like fighting with weapons. In another dream i had i was fighting with a large Mace (spiky ball attached to chain hanging from stick) and i was fighting a class mate who had a sword. The mace was very heavy as anyone would expect and i realized i would have a great speed disadvantage so i stretched my arm out to its full length and lifted the mace above my head planning to use the weight to drop down and deflect and attacks my classmate could make. The technique worked and may even save my life if i'm ever in a mace fight .
I believe understanding of lucid dreaming can allow you to better yourself in a million ways while you are awake. Thanks for reading
~Too many Lucid Dreams to count~
I imagine creating a sparring partner could be useful, especially if you have a problem getting hit in the face etc, but the practical application for dreams seems infinite - it's a matter of maintaining awareness of that infinite space is the problem.
The dream yogis of Tibet also state that a minute's meditation in the dream world is equivalent to several days in the waking world, maybe because it is such an intensely conscious act that it hyper focuses ones' awareness beyond anything they'd be capable of at that time with their physical body. Perhaps the same is true for martial combat - muscle memory may be considerably more efficient, for example.
I had another similar combat dream where I was being attacked by a man. I wasn't even scared. He seemed so slow and even though I didn't feel very strong in my dream, I overtook him and he met his demise. It gives me confidence that if I'm ever in that situation in real life, I'd be able to do it again.
I would think that if you can do certain moves in the safety of your dreams, you'd be more confident in your actual ability to do it.
