      Why do you want to LD?

      aside from pure fun and entertainment.

      personally, i really enjoy writing and drawing (even though i suck at drawing) and i just want to use lucid dreams for more creative ideas.

      also, if i get really serious into it, i wanna use it to help with my BDD. it's worth a shot. therapy costs too much anyway.

      Relaxation, and a little introspection. Also, writing my lucid dreams keeps my mad writing skillz sharp.

      Fantastic Question,
      It is one of the most important things to LDing.
      Mine is the thrill of LDs and to test my own boundaries of my mind and self.

      And usually doesn't work anyway.

      My answer: why the heck not?!! It's the coolest thing ever in the history of anything, ever. Even if my real life is as boring as jazz music, at least I can get up at 5 in the morning, sneak into my bastard neighbour's house (by walking through the window), then smash up their glassware and sew pimento olives onto the wife's cardigans (as I did a few nights ago). Now who'd say no to that?

      And yeah, there's also the therapy bit. That's a new and exciting frontier (though I'm not quite advanced enough yet).

      As a tool to explore my unconscious and the inner universe.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      My reasons for lucid dreaming are many and I could probably write several pages worth of content about it if I wanted to, but I'll try keeping it short:

      Perhaps the most important thing I want to LD for is to gain a better understanding of myself and how my own subconscious works. There are so many things I'm unsure of and I'm positive I can rid myself of that doubt through lucid dreaming. I know my subconscious knows the answer so it's up to me to dig it up.

      Another reason is the immense feeling of freedom I get from having a lucid dream. Having an own little world free of social barriers, the morals and opinions of others and peer pressure - what more can one ask? Only in dreams can one truly express themselves without the opinions of others influencing one's own opinion at all.

      And now, ignoring all the deep, philosophical stuff - naturally I also want to LD just for fun. What better playground is there than a world that is completely your own? With enough effort, you might very well be shooting fireballs from your hands or catching a glimpse of that elusive three-headed monkey tonight. Ever fell in love with a place you saw in a picture, or perhaps the location doesn't exist outside that movie or video game? No problem - you'll just have to trick your brain into getting you there. All of us dream every night so why not get the most out of them?

      And that, in short, is my reason for lucid dreaming.

      My reason is some curiosity...fun and enjoyment, but mostly I like the idea of being able to control something in my mind that most people just look at as random and have nocontrol over. Its something to explore that really hasno boundries. People take up hobbies and what not to keep themselves busy throughout life and I say why not chose something that once youve mastered you can do any other hobbie that people spend years doing in a night?

      i like to learn and experiment, and lucid dreams are definitely a very fascinating tool to learn of the mind, memory and the unconscious.

      I think its because people enjoy the feeling of being in a dream. I think a friend of mine put it best, when I asked her why she smokes grass she said something to the effect of "the feeling of being in a dream, is a good feeling, and smoking cannabis can produce that effect, more or less.

      First of all I want to do it for the challenge. I don't remember ever being aware that I'm dreaming, so having a lucid dream would mean that I have learned something I have been unable to for a long time.

      It also frustrates me how I seemingly ignore the obvious signs that I'm dreaming (flying, just to name one).

      Challenge aside, what better way to have fun? In a world where you choose what happens, and when. No limits but your own imagination (and the inevitable waking up). I want to explore places I can only visit in my imagination, and perhaps meet people who only exist in fantasy. And! I want to fly in a dream, and not fall to the ground in the end. I want to experience something other than reality and my chaotic, uncontrollable dreams.

      Besides, why waste a whole night? You might as well do something fun while you lie there.

      Well, I look at the alternative... I'd much rather basically be living another X amount of time each night and being able to do whatever I want than just sleeping, having bad recall, no control over what happens, and the other things that make lucid dreams so much greater than having regular or no dreams.

      Why?

      Dreaming is the other side of the mental coin. While awake, perception takes cues from from sensory input. In dreams, it is perception of the mind's inner workings. This throws a wrench in the concept of reality. What is out there and in your head must manifest in your perception. Lucid dream can explore the difference between these realms.

      I believe that the mindset necessary for Lucid Dreaming will also cultivate waking perception. A synergy between these realms can give a deeper understanding of how we are bound to this existence. Rather than an escape from reality, LDing can explore it deeper.

      I too love to write and draw (But I suck at drawing and I rush my stories so they have no back story, only a really epic fight) and I would love to use my LD's to explore fantasy-like worlds and do things that you can't do in real life. I want to use it as a stress reliever as well. Too many times throughout the day I feel like punching someone in the face and now I have a chance to do it! Only this time, there's no consequences and I can some add super sweet effects to it. I mean, you can't honestly pass up the chance to literally punch someone's face off, can you?


      Also, I secretly want to talk to myself. See what's on my mind.

      Because, Normally i hate sleeping, because all I have to look forward to is waking up to an alarm clock going off 6:00 AM in the morning to go to school -.-. NOW i get to look forward to flying,Being invincible, and anything else that comes to mind.
