Keeping A Dream Journal Can Help You Learn To Lucid Dream

Lucid dreaming, the act of being aware of and in control of your dreams, is something that has been practiced and studied for many years. In fact, lucid dreaming has been traced back to Hindu traditions since before 1000BC. These beliefs spread to Tibet where Bonpo Shamanism claims that they have been utilizing lucid dreaming in their meditations for the past 12,000 years. Around 350BC, famous Greek philosophers like Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato all believed that dreams had a solid foundation in philosophy. Aristotle wrote, “when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which tells us that what presents itself is but a dream,” in his book On Dreams. The concept of lucid dreaming continued to spread, and in 415AD, the first written record of lucid dreaming was reported. However, Judea-Christian cultures were extremely skeptical of this practice, as they believed that dreaming came from demons. Some Christian groups today continue to believe that lucid dreaming is an act of witchcraft and satanism, and most of the population won’t acknowledge the validity of lucid dreaming. It wouldn’t be until 1978 when scientists would begin to explore the possibilities of what lucid dreaming is and what it could achieve.

Other men draw a larger circle and bring within their brothers and sisters.
But some men have a great destiny. They must draw around themselves a circle that includes many, many more.

Which character can you just not stand, no matter how hard you try?

  • I don’t really like Tavros in the webcomic homestuck, he’s alright I guess but he doesn’t do much (up to the point I’m at, at least), and he lets people push him around too easily. He just kind of annoys me in that way that you can’t explain when you dislike something.

  • Hufflepuff! I’m more of the type of person to support someone and just be friendly and relaxed. I’m not that studious, I prefer not to be cunning, and I can be brave at times I believe, but that’s not what defines me.

If you had the ability to jump into fictional universes but could only pick two, which would you choose?

  • One where I could be a magical girl with my own land that I could escape from normal life to designed and customized based on my personality traits and inner workings. Oh and the school I’d go to there would def have to be like fumizaki academy from 'baka to test' 
  • If I had to choose a world to escape to if the world was ending, I would consider playing SBURB if I had such a game, I’d hate to cause the end of the world out of boredom and curiosity D:
