After a few lucid dreams, many people experience a drastic alteration in their
perspectives—they realize that there is much more to reality than what they currently understand.
Some are no longer afraid of death! Many say that lucid dreams are the best experiences they’ve had in their lives.

1. Adventure and Fantasy

Many people begin lucid dreaming because of the desire for adventure and the allure of doing the impossible. Flying and having sex seem to be the first activities of the novice lucid dreamer. Film director Michel Gondry told The Guardian that when he becomes lucid, “I generally end up having sex with the first girl I can find.” Since physical laws and social boundaries don’t exist in the dream world like they do here, lucidity provides the perfect playground for your fantasies to run free. Leap up a giant mountain, run into some magical creatures, chat with a dead celebrity, shrink down a few sizes and see the world from an ant’s perspective, or picnic on top of a locomotive steam train. Why not?

2. Nightmare Facing

For some people, nightmares are a real problem. Ambushed at night by their fears, many people avoid their nightmares by forgetting their dreams altogether, a kind of safety mechanism. But if you become lucid in a nightmare, you not only have the power to change the plot of the scary story of your subconscious, you have the power to heal and find the source of what’s plaguing you. So seize this opportunity: Face your monsters and defuse your nightmares, rather than running away from them.

3. Inspiration and Creativity

Dreams are a creative person’s wonderland. By becoming consciously aware in dreams, you’ll be able to tap into incredible amounts of knowledge and inspiration. If you’re writing a book, talk face-to-face with one of the main characters. Get Einstein to explain to you the theory of relativity, compose music, write a speech. If you believe that the dream world is created by your subconscious mind, then it is the ideal location to let your creativity run wild. Free of limitations, you can create pretty much anything you want.

4. Problem Solving

Lucid dreams can be used as a testing ground, a way to try out new skills. Imagine giving that quarterly presentation to a room of people in your dreams first, where you feel in control and relaxed. If you play sports, imagine winning that upcoming race, scoring that goal, beating that record, before any of it happens in the physical world. Got a problem that needs solving? Look to your dream for advice. Asking dreams for guidance is an ancient practice and a great way to find insights into everyday problems.

5. Healing

Physical ailments can sometimes result from an emotional or spiritual imbalance. Dream healing has been around for millennia, beginning with the ancient Egyptians. Got an illness, a broken bone, depression, abroken heart? In a lucid dream, you can heal many aspects of yourself. You can become happier and more whole.

6. Self Knowledge

Dreams often act like mirrors, presenting you with a “reflection” of yourself. By becoming conscious in your subconscious, you’re able to explore and deepen the connection to your own inner world. Who are you? What do you want? Lucid dreaming can be a practical tool for soul-searching, a way of getting in touch with your deeper self.
