      lucid dreaming as self-therapy

      Does lucid dreaming enhance your sense of well-being and happiness? If so, then how? Is it because the enjoyment of the experience carries over into waking life? Or perhaps sometimes (per the depth psychology models re: dream interpretation) by resolving internal emotional conflicts?

      Do you feel you know yourself better by paying attention to, and even controlling, your dreams? (And is that a good thing?) Do "shadow contents" (the things that scare or otherwise disturb you) pop up, so that with your lucidity you're able to deal with and resolve them?

      What problems do you think people can overcome by learning lucid dreaming? Can they repair low self-esteem? Resolve a longstanding grief issue? Learn to be more calm if they’re generally anxious persons?

      Does it happen too infrequently to be therapeutically valuable? Is it, in the end, just some good fun?

      Thanks!

      Yes Yes YES!!!!! FINALLY, SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!!!!!!


      I'm of the opinion that lucid dreaming can serve for a ridiculously huge amount of therapeutic purposes. Curing phobias, grief, pains associated with limb loss, loneliness, depression, nightmares, stress, god you name it but no one will take it seriously

      I wouldn't really call it self-therapy. I think it has the potential to go further than that.

      *Infrequent, only when you are learning. If you manage to really master it, you could easily be having 3+ a week, even every night if you learn to WILD/MILD proficiently.

      The most successful hypnotherapy utilises visualisations to reprogram the subconscious mind. It seems that LDing could be used the same way, since it is subconscious visualisation. We also know that practising complex tasks in dreams can help with one's skills whilst awake. So, for example, a person who had a lousy upbringing and no strong parental figures to affirm them, could potentially visualise supportive, affirming dream parents and have this affect their subconscious in a way far more powerful than hypnosis.

      Examining the content of our dreams while conscious of them can also be very powerful. Cary Grant did a variation of this by taking LSD under the supervision of a shrink and observing what his hallucinations contained. He claimed it worked wonders.

      This is the most exciting aspect of LDing for me because frankly I am a basket-case.

      That's interesting. I always thought it was possible and that Lucid Dreaming was actually helpful in the waking world contrarily to what my mom has been trying to make me understand...

      When I was younger I used to dream lucidly my nightmares, and I can tell you, that LD helped me to stop dreaming nightmares. Following this, you have nice chance to cure yourself from, for example, any phobia or some easy physical illness. Ofc. nobody will give you hundred percent of sureness, because it all depends of each people.

      And how about happiness... Yes, just like learning of any other skills, Dreaming Lucidy can make you happy. Always when you are learning new skills, and you can see progress, you are happy, aren't you? It's like lessons of driving a car, you know... the way to learn it is not so short, and if you will finish your lessons, you'll noticed that you can drive a car, and you are happy because it opens for you "window" for many new possibilities...

      Anyway, it is always a huge pail of joy and fun !
