You have answered this in your previous post :)

I always lucid dream i love it. You can explore your subconscious mind indepth if you learn to pick out the symbology in them.

This is from Wikipedia:

'A lucid dream is a dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik (Willem) van Eeden (1860–1932).[1] In a lucid dream, the dreamer can actively participate in and manipulate imaginary experiences in the dream environment[2]. Lucid dreams can seem real and vivid[3].

A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness.'

Enjoy dreaming!

Im crying right now. I HAVE LUCID DREAMS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT AND DAY (naps). for the past FIVE years and i thought i was going crazy, i didnt know that there was a name for this other than Vivid. Does this mean something? What might have made this come about? Does this mean that I can also Astral-Project? because i believe ive done that many times without knowing these terms. Oh my God, WOW

It's quite exciting when you realise other people have similar experiences and you thought you were on your own! My take on it is people that have experimented with hallucinogens or are on some kind of spiritual journey/awakening, seem to experience this kind of thing perhaps more than others. In regards to Astral Projection, I get this too. It has happened for about five years for me aswell. I didn't know what it was but i spoke to a friends mother and she said she commonly practices Astral Projection. You might want to do a bit of research as I know there is skepticsm over the dangers of

yes lucid dream is being aware that you are dreaming! as for me i think the spirit travel when we sleep! and even when yopu are lucid dreaming there is many level of dream! dream as creation of your mind! prophetic dream over time! dream of life line of other people!(meaning what is going to happen for them in the next fee year) dream that you are in the future seing event that are set! dream because people think about you and you pick it up! dream where your conscience is split in 7 at the same time and you see different place in space time merge in 1! etc. the dream place is so complex and full of possibility! have fun experiance and enjoy!
