Can "natural" lucid dreaming be genetic?

Postby esilemc00 » 24 Mar 2014 02:56

I start lucid dreaming in third grade, and I have several siblings, and my youngest sister in third grade told me about the dream she had a couple nights ago, her first lucid dream! She doesnt know that theres a name for it yet, but she acually tried some pretty cool stuff for a third grader, like trying to change wall colors, and better yet, managed to get punched in the face by arguing with a DC about whether or not she was dreaming. xD

But do you think lucid dreaming naturally can be like a trait that runs in familes?

On my opinion,either is genetic or it goes naturally for kids.i had sort of lucid dream when I was young and my 11 years old sister have LD few times a week,and sometimes almost every night. It likely that kids can get lucid easier than adults, kids are much more aware of everything,they're all about exploring and observing their environment, why wouldn't they do it in a dream?so,I think it has to be a combination of both,they probably need to be the "asking questions" kind (has to do with the genetic and environment they live in) and the explorers which most kids are.

I don't know about genetics per se, but it's definitely true that there are certain people who have a gift for it.

Some are better than others at most things... I am more of a nurture vs nature for most everything. Even LDing.

maybe if almost every human being was LDer it would become part of our DNA :)

Ive no idea. I dont recall a study ever being done on that. Some people certainly are more natural at it then others.

If LD is talked about in a family and believed, it would make it far easier for other family members to do or just experience esp the children.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
