Is it possible to study while dreaming?

Postby chaosdragoon13 » 30 Nov 2013 11:14

I have a bunch of exams coming up and I was wondering if I learned to lucid dream, will I be able to study everything in one night? If that's the case then I have to learn fast because I am not very good at studying. :cry:

Ive forgotten who it was now but one famous person in history used to do his study by putting his books under his pillow while he went to sleep and he'd remember everything in the morning.

As far as this thou goes for most of us.. well everything you've ever learnt is already sitting there within your subconciousness awaiting to be accessed again. Learning in a LD would be no different (that is IF the correct info is there in the LD!!) then learning and putting it into ones waking conciousness in real life. So sorry, no quick fix for study. :ugeek:

If you can access the information through the subconscious wouldn't it make it easier to access through the conscious mind? Because I thought it was like learning a new skill, you'd become better at it with practice.

Yes accessing subconciousness does become better with practice but most people arent so great at getting info out from their subconciousness. That is why it is "subconsciousness" and not "consiousness" the term used the first place. To access the subconciousness one usually needs to use techniques eg meditation, lucid dreams etc.

Its easier to just to get your study books out again in real life and keep studying from those instead.

One last question, can I enhance my studying and memory skills for school or college?

Anything is possible if u know the right method. if u r new to LD its not going to be an easy ride. LD is learning in mental space. it takes time and lots of efforts. there is no shortcuts. And if u r really think u can do it, sure u can. :)
I see the Truth now.

There are mega memory techniques out there (special ways of helping remembering things. Those can work very well). You may be able to get a book from your library on that and its easy to learn and work with that stuff.

Another way if you did want help yourself by accesses into your subconsciousness, would be to use a Tulpa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulpa (formed from a part of your consciousness/subconciousness) and have that interact with you. You could interact with something like that at school. Im not sure thou if the Tulpa thou that can work well, if is a good idea as many run into issues with those (with their own creation taking over their life etc) and one needs to put into a lot of time to make one in the first place (eg 60-100hrs of time and something which may not ever go away once formed).

Im currently using a Tulpa at times to help me with things eg it helps me find things Ive misplaced, helps me if Im doing an English thing if I consult with it (Im going to later today get it to help me work on doing a book review) etc (but I had a very bad exprience with one in the past. One can get way over ones head when one starts messing with things like that, some have ended up as mental cases by making the subconscious stuff appear real).

Anyway..I suggest you try to get a book on mega memory techniques and try that, that can be of instant help and its sounding like you are needing to get your info in your memory fast.

One still needs to be able to remember what one learnt while in a LD, just like one would of had to remember if one studied the same info.

Hey hey hey, you are in the same case as me. Me too I have exam at the end of year. I never revise my lesson because I’m too lazy but I have good point. You will say ''HOW????''

My method: I remember everything that the teacher is saying very clearly; I have a very powerful memory. For Math, Physic, I am so intelligent that I see all the solution of the problem they give us.

Some of my friends said ''what you do at home to have good point??'' and I reply ''Nothing but I listen in class" So what is my secret; all it is in the brain and belief that all, not so complicate hahaha :lol:
I discovered Lucid Dream by watching the film Inception(2012)
Lucid Dream Count: 31+
Normal Dream Count: +∞
Objective: Make 30 Lucid-Dreams this year(2016).
