You now you're fully lucid when...

Postby berggg » 03 Jan 2016 14:05

You know you're fullt lucid when you're able to just leave your 2 year old child in your dream to have some fun.

I dreamt that I was holding my 2 year old son when i suddenly became lucid. I then thaught: I don't want to spend my time in my lucid dream taking care of my child. So I just left him and flew away. I was not easy, but I think it was the right thing to do. It was just a dream! Not that I don't love my child, but I want to do other things in my lucid dreams. And being able to do it meant that I was pretty lucid.

Any opinions on this? Anyone with common expreiences?

I know exactly where you're coming from. Just the other night I became lucid in a dream and found it hard to just let go of my non-lucid plot. It felt like 'unfinished business' abandoning the dream delusion; but I knew I'd chosen the liberating path by staying lucid and flying over a dreamscape, carefree, rather than allowing a fake reality to deceive or trouble my mind.

Lucid dreaming is akin to meditation in the sense that you experience the liberating clarity and realisation that you have been dreaming, thinking, or ruminating all along. Such states provide you with a realistic perspective because they are mental conditions that really show you what's happening within consciousness. All you are getting is qualitatively distinct percepts and you needn't identify yourself with them.

Thanks for sharing! :-)

I had a dream like that just recently (read my post, "My Dad's 'Ghost'/Baby-sitting with my mom and a young Victor Borge"). I was mad because all those kids were in the room, and I was "getting the hots"! I didn't mind that my mother was in the room, though!

Fortunately, we don't need to pay babysitters for our non-lucid children in such cases! ;)
