Lucid Dreaming And Motor Skills

A lucid dreaming is a kind of dream in which the dreaming dreamer becomes aware they are actually dreaming. During a lucid dream a person can have some degree of control over his or her dream environment, story, or characters; however, this all is not really required for a lucid dream to be defined as a lucid dream. Lucid dreams are believed to occur when a person is asleep and visualizes something that is not ordinarily found to be occurring in their waking lives. In fact, most people who have lucid dreams report that their lucid dreams did not happen while they were sleeping. This is called “dream recall.”

Situational Lucid Dreaming

People who have had a few lucid dreams report that their dream experiences frightened them, though others did not have such an experience. This can be due to many things. Some may remember waking up in the middle of lucid dreaming and running, while others have said that when they woke up they saw that they were back in their sleep, but no recollection of the dream occurred. Lucid dreaming can also cause a person to have amnesia, but this too can be caused by other factors. Some have even reported that lucid dreams caused them to remember specific dreams.

For people who have had several lucid dreams, there are many stories about what occurred during those times. The most common one involves a person who is afraid of falling, so he or she awakes in a reclining position. He or she then begins to see himself or herself lying on the ground, being surrounded by trees and flowers, with a “cloud” floating by. Waking again, the person sees himself or herself standing in front of a desk with a bookcase in front of him or her, but does not remember falling or being in a dream. This kind of lucid dreaming is called situational lucid dreaming.

Determine Whether Your Memory Is Truthful Or Not

There are ways to determine whether your memory is truthful or not, and to know if you are having recurring dreams that lead you back to reality testing. The best way to do this is to consult a professional dream doctor, who has been certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. These professionals are able to tell you if you are experiencing unusual behaviors or dream problems, and can tell you whether you are in a normal waking state or in a dreaming state. This is also a good way to determine if your dreams are real or not. You can use the American Dreaming Association’s guide to determine your levels of awareness.

It is very easy to “dream” without wetting yourself during your dreams, so it is important to do reality checks whenever you are about to enter a lucid dreaming session. It is recommended that you take a ten-minute break every two hours. If you fail to do this, your mind will probably wander to your past experiences in your dream and try to slip into it. This could actually have the opposite effect and make you fall deeper into the dreaming world, so it’s always important to keep track of your time and set aside a few minutes each morning, so that you can come back to reality.

People Have Recurring Dreams Is As They Have Poor Or No Motor Skills

Some people also have a difficult time realizing they are dreaming while they are doing their lucid dreaming exercises. In order to fix this, you must relax in a dark room for about twenty minutes. Another way to prevent yourself from being woken up by nightmares is to do breathing exercises several times each day. You should also try to keep yourself very still and very relaxed while you are practicing lucid dreaming.

One of the biggest reasons people have recurring dreams is because they have poor or no motor skills. Lucid dreaming could help you develop strong motor skills. It would be beneficial to strengthen your body before you get into the REM stage of your dreams, so that you can then practice controlling your movements. Remember that in lucid dreaming, you will be moving and flying through the air, so you won’t be moving through real life like you would when you are waking up. However, if you don’t have any control over your movements in the dream, it may be easier to simply concentrate on doing them in your waking state. You might also want to do some motor skills exercises before you try lucid dreaming.

Summing Up

A lot of research has been done on the connection between poor memories and poor brain function. While lucid dreams seem to have a lot to do with the prefrontal cortex and memory loss, it is not proven. A much better way to find out if the link between poor memories and non-lucid dreams holds true is to perform brain scans of people who have lucid dreams. If the scans show that the prefrontal cortex and memory loss are the cause, then there is no need to worry about developing poor motor skills in the non-lucid dreams.
