Lucid Dreaming Fast Track

Why Aren't We All Lucid Dreamers?

by Eric via Email

My question is why isn't the idea of controlling your dreams more widespread and more talked about? I mean it's an amazing idea! The possibilities are endless! Or have I just been under a rock all this time???

PS - You did a great job on the awesome site it covers a lot of interesting stuff. And all this seems too cool to be true, learning to control your dreams and induce them...

Rebecca says: You're right in that not enough people know about lucid dreaming, and I plan to change that! However, it does take commitment. Unless you are a natural lucid dreamer (ie, you've been doing it every night since you were a kid), it takes time to learn how to lucid dream. Once you do it - you're sweet. But until then, lucid dreaming takes effort and practice. And most people are just too busy in their lives to pursue lucid dreams - no matter how amazing they really are.

You raise another interesting point - why aren't we always lucid in dreams, if lucidity is simply a case of recognizing the dream state? To many people, lucid dreaming IS natural. So why is it so unnatural for others? I recently wrote an article exploring this subject: Why Aren't We Always Lucid in Dreams?
