The issue is, I once had a semi-lucid dream where I accidentally found some dream personifications of personal traumas (those things are mental constructs that are part of my inner belief system and keep my from acomplishing pretty much anything), wich brought to mind the question:
If I call up my subconscious mind within a dream and, instead of asking questions, ask it to ERASE those constructs/beliefs/whatever, would it work? would it have any sort of colatheral effect?
please, share with me your opinions (or maybe experiences) on the subject.
<EDIT>Maybe "erasing" those things is too harsh and I should listen/convince them to change (or go away). Anyway, please share your toughts.</EDIT>
I dare say this could work in a lucid dream!
what actually happened when i 'met' with my subconscious was far more of a priority than what i had planned. In fact it was trying to tell me a very important message for that particular time in my life.
This is the dream:
About a month later i was diagnosed with depression, lol.
This experience however is likely to be unique for me and each person who tries it will get a varying response from their own subconscious.
I've read journals where people have communicated with their subconscious in various ways, some call up old memories, others call up old dreams to relive, i still haven't read one about giving tasks.
You know what's funny, i first read the title of this thread as "Giving Thanks to your subconscious" and thought wow that's a unique idea!
Maybe we should give thanks to our hard working subby every once in a while
I once had a nightmare, in which I was being flung by a dark pointy figure up and down a narrow hallway. I wasn't lucid at first, although I was conscious enough to feel pain and each smack really hurt. After two or three smashes I had the conscious insight to ask whether I was dreaming. Of course I was. I didn't waste any time; I marched up to the silhouette man and grab him by the shoulders.
"WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME!" I shouted. His aggression immediately turned to sadness and childish frustration. "I can't reconcile this," he said, and shoved a notepad in my hands. He has scrawled the words "be loved, love yourself", referring to a philosophical debate I had been having earlier that day: Is it more important to love yourself, or be loved by someone else?
Clearly, my conclusion was at odds with my unconscious. There was absolutely no symbolism required. My inner child was acting out with a massive tantrum - and demanded my attention. Yet it is only when lucid that I have the opportunity to resolve such issues face-to-face.
Instead of fearing the pointy figure or wanting to banish him, I now felt empathy for him. He hadn't understood. So I explained my reasons as if he were a child. Draining away both physically and emotionally, the creature left and I woke up in awe of the childish element that arose from my subconscious self.
I guees this means a "It probably would work".

Yeah, I heard when we read, we don't read every letter, and our brain fills in the blanks. After I read your post, I looked at the title quickly again, and in a flash I saw "thanks" as well. If I induce a lucid dream, I'll be sure to give thanks, hah!
Also, today, talking to my friend, I was wondering if you could ask your subconscious for help, if you have something important coming up, like a big test for example.
I read a book called The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, which talked about ideas like giving your mind a task before bed, doing affirmations, etc. I don't believe it ever mentioned doing it in your dreams, but I wonder -- if you interact consciously with your subconscious, then maybe it's not your subconscious at all. Just another part of your conscious?
I don't know if that makes sense. I admit it all just sounds like semantics when I put it like that.
We have persons we hate alot... If we could only try and give them love trough lucid dreams it would be alot easier to evolve spiritually this way. You emmediatly brighten up the darkest corners of your subconscious. It is great. Spend energy on precious dream character interaction time here for more fruitful results.
if you want to know more information's about subconscious mind i suggest you to see this..
