No Longer Lucid

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new here. Although, I've been watching the youtube show since the beginning. 

I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or had some insight for me. 

I have been lucid dreaming for quite some time now. Most of the time when something disturbing happens and/or scary in my dreams I become lucid. I know that I'm dreaming, can change the environment, and do pretty much whatever I would like to.

Recently, I have been having some distressing dreams, but instead of becoming lucid I just change the dream. I'm not aware that I'm dreaming, or at least, I don't think I do. However, I know I'm able to fly/move through walls/change the environment. This has happened to me a few times now. How can I not know that I'm dreaming but I know I can fly away!? 

I was wondering if anything like this has happened to those of you who journey. Perhaps I journey enough that my mind thinks I can fly most of the time? Haha. This is a new experience for me.

hi SacredBridge,

Lucidity in dreaming isn't necessary to have shamanic dreaming movements or follow a dreaming intent, for example, to not be afraid in dreams, or to change them when things happen.

Sometimes, moving more intently in dreams in a direct manner will actually decrease lucidity in dreaming because the energy is moving in a way where the mind doesn't become involved. Lucidity is often more a mental awareness or consciousness thing than a dreaming thing. 

You can "know" you're dreaming in a dream but not rise to consciousness in a lucid manner because they are two separate things. When our dreaming self "dives" into the dream, lucidity is a process of that dreaming state partially moving into normal awareness from the dreaming side. However, the energy in dreaming can also follow other paths, where we direct it through dreaming intent, emotional energy, etc., and it can be even more effective than lucidity. (Although maybe less cool)

While a lot of dreaming practices or books or sites emphasize lucidity in dreaming, in my view it's not necessary to move your energy. If you pay attention to how the dream "moves" and your energy is moving in the dreams, how you feel, you can find awareness of dreaming even if you're not conscious, and that works just as well as a trigger.
