Welcome susie.tong. I have never attempted to meet my inner self in a lucid dream. Mostly, I just try to have fun. :-) I have most of my LDs posted in the "share your lucid dreams" section. I wish you the best of luck with your lucid endeavors.

My advice is to not try at all. Your inner self is not some form of anything you could imagine. It's a twisted maze of self awareness that your subconscious keeps hidden. And with good reason. To truley lucid dream freely you have to resolve any issues you have in life. Your first step to lucid dreaming and this should apply to anyone is to seek out a psychologist for counselling.

Think of it as a safety net to dipping your foot in a large lake that could swallow you up. If you have a natural ability or have been opened up to lucid dreaming via some near death experience or a bardo, such as Heart surgery or a car accident, that's the stuff you need to sort out first.

A psychologist can bring to the fore any lurking history that may leapfrog the ID and disregard the superego entirely. You're then just left with the ego stumbling about trying to make sense of it all without memory recall backup.

I've discussed this topic with dream study clinicians and sleep specialists. Lucid dreaming is not the best way to find any enlightenment unless you are fully prepared first. I suggest before anything, that you are capabable of strong meditation techniques, conscious de-catastriphying through CBT ( cognitive behavioural therapy ) and deep sense of mindfullness.

If it's inner self you are looking for this is NOT the first step. Lucid dreaming is either induced, fallen over, naturally occurring (rare) or takes years of practice.

I know the idea sounds inviting, but this is not a course of action you should take lightly.

I highly recommend -

Book - "Lucid Dreaming: Gateway To The Inner Self - By Robert Waggoner


Website - "Past Issues/ Lucid Dreaming Experience Magazine" - dreaminglucid.com

Book - "Memories, Dreams, Reflections" - by Carl Jung

Also books about dream work by Jeremy Taylor

I think that non-lucid and lucid dreams can provide highly valuable insights regarding all aspects of consciousness, from daily life concerns to deeper archetypal and core spiritual levels. It is very helpful to keep a dream journal, and also, make drawings or other creative expressions of important dreams. Dreams often communicate in metaphorical language. Try to make personal association to the meaning of symbolic dream objects, characters, and situations.
