      Memories

      If you have memories that are very vague, will they be vivid in a lucid dream? If so, how come?

      That is certainly possible. When you are in a lucid dream, your mind is in a special state where your concious and subconcious exist at once. There are endless opportunities to call up forgotten memories and to examine some of the stuff that is going on downstairs in your subconcious. It's really a great opportunity for self reflection and even self help.
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      I agree with Seeker but I caution against relying too much on data present in a dream. Even if they seem to be reliable memories, they may be distorted beyond the realm of pure, actual memory and contorted into an amalgam of ideas and concepts - both remembered and synthesized.

      It's like with hypnosis: it can help spur a forgotten memory back into the conscious mind but it can also impose suggestions and biases onto the memories, if you allow it to.

      I wish there was somewhere i could find out more about this because this sorta stuff is what is getting my sis into lucid dreaming so she can visit memories, i too wouldn't mind revisiting past moments and maybe twisting the tale, would be very cool.

      I agree. Revisiting some memories is very welcome, especially when you can twist the tale into something even more special and memorable.

      A few weeks ago I had a meaningful "meeting" with a good friend of mine who passed away this past December. It was a wonderful way to "say goodbye", even given that it was completely manufactured by my mind. Even better is that seeing him made me immediately become lucid. Then, a night or few later, I saw him in another dream and became lucid.

      Sorry to hear about your friend, but this is just it, with our lucid dreams we can talk to them asthough they are not gone, meeting them in lucids i think is a great way of remembering them and cherishing the memory.
