Additional Capability (Copied from another website)Edit
People often ask me if, apart from the obvious fun aspects of lucid dreaming whether or not there are more practical benefits.
Learning to lucid dream can have quite an impact on your everyday ‘waking’ life in more ways than one. Apart from the obvious feeling that you have a special skill that ninety percent of the people around you have no idea exists or how to learn it, lucid dreaming has many other practical uses.
Here are a few.
Some people have found that lucid dreaming is an excellent way to combat re-occurring nightmares. The main problem with people’s nightmares is that they are usually a victim.
Whether they are running away from a monster, being threatened in some way or re-living a traffic accident and seeing themselves or a loved one come to harm, they are always a ‘victim’ in the nightmare with little to no control over how the dream pans out.. There is always a negative element that is oppressing them.
Lucid dreaming can help here because in a lucid dream it’s you that is in control. If you don’t like the nasty monster then wish it away and it will go. If you can become lucid whilst in the middle of a nightmare you can literally take control and end the negative aspect.
Much of the fear in a nightmare is that of being hurt or coming to harm. You cannot be hurt when you are dreaming. That knowledge and empowerment gives many people the edge they need to finally put their nightmares to rest.
Many people have problems with confidence in social situations. Facing those situations in a lucid dream can sometimes help because your actions have no consequences.
Are you afraid of public speaking?Edit
Public speaking can be a nightmare for lots of people. Does the thought of giving a speech at a wedding or an after dinner party make your blood run cold? Lucid dreaming is a great way to overcome these obstacles.
Experiencing these situations, although only in a lucid dream can give you added confidence in the real world. Practicing time and time again in a safe little world of your own where nobody can ridicule or harm you can have astounding benefits.
Imagine standing in front of an audience of thousands and then getting up and talking. You can do this because you are in your world and in your world you can do ANYTHING!
Enhance Your AbilitiesEdit
Improve your musical skillsEdit
As any musician will tell you ‘practice makes perfect’. As you will see later in this book, when we lucid dream our brainwave patterns are very similar to when we are fully awake.
This gives us the opportunity to practice things within our lucid dream that will carry through into our waking life. The same mental processes will take place just as though you were practicing in real life. This gives you a much larger scope for practicing because you are not restricted by ‘real life’ hindrances.
When you are lucid dreaming, there is nothing to stop you practicing a new instrument or trying to master a particular difficult piece of music. The very process of performing in your lucid dream will help you in the real world.
If you have a musical recital approaching, you could play a piece of music to a large audience in a lucid dream. The possibilities are limitless.
Practice a martial artEdit
As any martial artist will tell you, repeated practice of a martial art is essential if a high level of competence is to be achieved. Your brain needs to learn the various different forms and movements so that you can react to a given situation instinctively and without thought.
What better way to go through your different fighting styles and movements than in a lucid dream? In fact there is nothing to stop you fighting with an opponent to improve your sparring skills.
When you become proficient at lucid dreaming there will be nothing to stop you fighting with Bruce Lee himself!
The ability to summon people into your dreams is covered later.
Losing weight is something that almost everybody would like to do at some point in their life, both for health reasons and for self image.
One of the main problems with trying to lose weight is that eating for many people is habit based and not purely because they are hungry. Keeping the brain ‘satisfied’ as well as the appetite is an important part of weight loss.
This is where lucid dreaming comes in. Food cravings can cause people to eat unnecessarily. This excessive calorific intake is what causes weight gain in the first place. Fending off these cravings can help reduce calorie intake and therefore reduce weight.
When you have a food craving, simply tell yourself that you will be able to eat whatever you desire, but it will be later. Then when you have your next lucid dream, you can gorge yourself on as many cream cakes, doughnuts, hot dogs or anything else that you can think of. The trick is to make your brain think that the craving has been satisfied.
When you wake up after the dream, you will not feel ‘full’ physically, but you will feel ‘satisfied’. This technique has proven to be very powerful in helping people lose weight.
Creative problem solvingEdit
One of the more powerful uses of lucid dreaming is creative problem solving. There are numerous techniques that you can use to solve everyday problems whilst lucid dreaming.
Some people are even able to solve complex mathematical problems within a lucid dream whereas others often solve difficult electrical or mechanical design problems.
One very powerful technique is to use a dream character as a doorway to your subconscious. More on this later in the course.
As you can see, the benefits of lucid dreaming are far reaching and limitless. Those that do not know how to lucid dream are missing out on one of life’s greatest experiences.
Before we move onto Step1 of the lucid dreaming process, just to whet your appetite here are some of the things you will be able to do when you have acquired your newfound skills. You will learn more about these skills later.
• Learn how to fly.
• Creative problem solving.
• Sexual encounters.
• Magic powers.
• Walking through walls and windows.
• Traveling into space and exploring the universe.
• Meeting people who have passed away.
• Meeting famous people.
But why stop there? By the time you have completed the steps in this guide, you will be able to do anything that you can imagine. A whole new world will open up to you. A world in which you can do anything your heart desires!

The Power Of The Divine:Edit
If the user has true powers of his/her dream land, they can even contact or communicate with spirits,people,fairies,vampires,werewolves, and other magical beings or beings. the user may even enter powerful worlds and perhaps even use their for-underseen powers, some even may visit the enchanted world, and access themselves to enchanted abilitation,foods,people,items, and perhaps even statis themselves,. the user if has full power can access the power of the divine, the ability to emit powerful rays and shapes of light, which have their own kinetic and varied effect. Oneiromancy is a very easy power to obtain but even extrordinaringly hard to aquire the divine powers. the divine can magically heal or organicly help others in anyway,. In the realm, Inidasium the user may walk over to any source of water, and cause it to glow, once the user drinks this they will be healed in their physical self, and also their astral self (dream self). the divine can have powerful access to ruins,chambers, hidden places, and has atleast three other astral powers like beacon demission, or telepathy . many other theories are unknown to this power, but it is most likley an air or energy guardian can domain this power.
A unique exemplar of a book of dream-interpretation survives from pre-Hellenistic Egypt, the so-called "Ramesside Dream-Book", the surviving fragments of which are translated into English by Kasia Szakowska.
- Jacob dreams of a ladder to heaven (Genesis 28);
- his son Joseph dreamed of his future success (Genesis 37) and interpreted the dreams of the Pharaoh of Egypt (Genesis 41);
- Solomon conversed with God in his dreams;
- Daniel interpreted dreams (in the Book of Daniel);
- the Magi are told in a dream to avoid Herod on their journey home (Matthew 2).
- Joseph, husband of Mary, was directed to flee to Egypt (Matthew 2);
- Paul was told to go to Macedonia (Acts 16).
Dream divination was a common feature of Greek and Roman religion and literature or all genres. Aristotle and Plato discuss dreams in various works. The only surviving Greco-Roman dreambook, the Oneirocritica was written by Artemidorus (2c.). Artemidorus cites a large number of previous authors, all now lost.
Oneirocritic literature is the traditional (ancient and mediaeval) literary format of dream interpretation. The ancient sources of oneirocritic literature are Kemetian (Aegyptian), Akkadian (Babylonian), and Hellenic (Greek). The mediaeval sources of oneirocritic literature are Āstika (Hindu), Persian, ʕarabic, and European.
The only pre-Hellenistic oneirocritic MS hitherto discovered is the Raʕmeššide (19th dynasty) dream-book.
This was a section of the extensive omen-literature.
Here, dreams about specific numbers or about reading specific chapters of the Qurʔan are among the chief subjects of prognostication. The most renowned of the ʕarabic texts of oneiromancy is the Great Book of Interpretation of Dreams.
Achmet is an adaptation of an ʕarabic book to the tastes of a European readership.
Derived from older literature, modern dream-books are still in common use in Europe and the United States, being commonly sold along with good-luck charms.
The indigenous Chontal of the Mexican state of Oaxaca use Calea zacatechichi for oneiromancy.

Sleep and creativityEdit
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaScene From A Midsummer Night's Dream, Titania and Bottom by Sir Edwin LandseerThe majority of studies on sleep and creativity have shown that sleep can facilitate insightful behavior and flexible reasoning, and there are several hypotheses about the creative function of dreams. On the other hand, a few recent studies have supported a theory of creative insomnia, in which creativity is significantly correlated with sleep disturbance.

In a study on cognitive flexibility across the sleep-wake cycle, researchers discovered that when woken from REM sleep, participants had a 32% advantage on an anagram task (when compared with the number of correct responses after NREM awakenings). This was consistent with the hypothesis that due to the lack of aminergic dominance in REM sleep, this particular sleep state is highly conducive to fluid reasoning and flexible thought. Interestingly, participant performance after awakening from REM sleep was not better than participants who stayed awake, which indicates that in REM sleep, there is an alternative (but just as effective) mode of problem solving that differs from the mechanism available while awake.
Participants in a study were asked to translate a string of digits using two simple rules that allowed the string to be reduced to a single digit (number reduction task). Out of three groups of participants (those who slept, those who stayed awake during the day, and those who stayed awake during the night), participants who got eight hours of sleep were two times as likely during retesting to gain insight into a hidden rule built into the task.
Some participants in a study went 32 hours without sleep while the control participants slept normally. When tested on flexibility and originality on figural and verbal tests, the sleep-deprived participants had severe and persistent impairments in their performance.
Under hypnotic-induced sleep, participants were much more likely to produce paraphrases of jokes that they had heard before and to spontaneously create new jokes (when compared with their performance while awake).
Recent studies have also shown that sleep not only helps consolidate memory, but also integrates relational memories. In one study, the participants were tested to see if sleep helped in this aspect (Ellenbogen et al., 2007, as cited in Walker, 2009). The subjects of the experiment were taught five "premise pairs", A>B, B>C, C>D, and D>E. They were not aware of the overall hierarchy, where A>B>C>D>E. The subjects were split into 3 separate groups. The first group was tested 20 minutes after learning the pairs, the second was tested 12 hours later without sleep, and the third was tested 12 hours later with sleep in between. The groups were tested in both first degree pairs (A>B, C>D, etc.) and 2nd degree pairs (A>C, B>D, or C>E). The results were that with the first degree pairs, the first group only performed at around chance levels, and the second and third groups had significantly better performances. With the 2nd degree pairs, the first group still performed at around chance levels, and the second group performed at about the same level as in the 1st degree pair test. However, the third group performed even better than before, gaining a 25% advantage over the group without sleep. The results of this study showed that sleep is a significant factor in integrating memories, or gaining the bigger picture.
Creative insomnia refers to the idea that insomnia can actually spark creativity.
- Marcel Proust wrote most of his À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time) while staying awake in the night due to a chronic illness. In Sodome et Gomorrhe, he suggests that "Un peu d'insomnie n'est pas inutile pour apprécier le sommeil, projeter quelque lumière dans cette nuit. [A little insomnia is useful for appreciating sleep, for projecting some light into this night.]"
- Film-maker Alan Berliner made a documentary on his lifelong insomnia and its complex role in his creative process.
- "Insomnia is almost an oasis in which those who have to think or suffer darkly take refuge." – Colette
- "It's at night, when perhaps we should be dreaming, that the mind is most clear, that we are most able to hold all our life in the palm of our skull. I don't know if anyone has ever pointed out that great attraction of insomnia before, but it is so; the night seems to release a little more of our vast backward inheritance of instincts and feelings; as with the dawn, a little honey is allowed to ooze between the lips of the sandwich, a little of the stuff of dreams to drip into the waking mind. I wish I believed, as J. B. Priestley did, that consciousness continues after disembodiment or death, not forever, but for a long while. Three score years and ten is such a stingy ration of time, when there is so much time around. Perhaps that's why some of us are insomniacs; night is so precious that it would be pusillanimous to sleep all through it! A 'bad night' is not always a bad thing." – Brian W. Aldiss
- Acquainted with the Night: Insomnia Poems (edited by Lisa Russ Spaar) is a collection of over eighty poems by famous poets and writers like Walt Whitman, Emily Bronté and Robert Frost, all inspired by sleepless nights. Fifteen of the poems actually have "insomnia" in the title.
- "Si les insomnies d'un musicien lui font créer de belles oeuvres, ce sont de belles insomnies. [If the insomnia of a musician allows him to create beautiful pieces, it is a beautiful insomnia.]" – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
- Vladmir Nabokov believed that insomnia was a positive influence on his work. He once remarked that "sleep is the most moronic fraternity in the world, with the heaviest dues and the crudest rituals."
Although no studies have actually shown a causal relationship yet, various studies have suggested that the positive relationship between sleep and creativity is more complicated and less clear-cut than previously thought.
- One study with children (ages 10–12) in New Zealand demonstrated a correlation between insomnia and creative thought. This study looked at the incidence of sleep disturbances in thirty highly creative children when compared with thirty control children. The hypothesis was that there would be a higher incidence of sleep disturbance in the highly creative children than in the control children. Results showed that there was a significant difference between the two groups, with the creative children reporting more sleep disturbance, therefore suggesting that creative ability may indeed affect an individual's sleep patterns. More specifically, out of the sixty children tested on a standard creativity test, seventeen of the highly creative children indicated that they had higher levels of sleep disturbance (compared to only eight of the control children).
- In another study that examined the interactive relationships between sleep, fatigue, creativity and personality, participants were given the "Sleep Questionnaire", the "Fatigue Inventory", the "Remote Association Test" and the "Probabilistic Orientation Test". The researchers found that arousal measures of sleep and fatigue were meaningfully related to one another, but not to measures of thinking and of attitudinal orientations. Most importantly, they found that creativity was not significantly related to any of the dimensions of sleep.
- In a series of three studies that analyzed the link between creativity, dreams, and sleep behaviors, researchers discovered that: (1) participants who were classified as "fast sleepers" (those who fell asleep quickly) were more likely to score highly on a creativity test, (2) participants who scored highly on a creativity test were more likely to solve their problems through dreams and to fall asleep quickly, and (3) adults in creative occupations have significantly more dream distortion, visual mentation, and regressive dream content.
