The Biggest Myth About Lucid Dreaming

I'm still not quite sure how I feel about this realization. I mean once I thought about it, it all makes sense. The myth is that the lucid dreamer is in control of the dream. What the dreamer can do is make suggestions, requests and give directives yet there's no guarantee that it will manifest. And even when if it does manifest, who is deciding the way in which it is revealed?

Another great way to conceptualize this is to consider the helmsman of a ship. While the helmsman has the ability to steer the ship they are not in control of the weather pattern and the nature of the environment around them. 


Leave your speculations in the comments below and share this post with someone who loves lucid dreaming.

This myth of the lucid dreamer having full control of the dream was brought to my attention while listening to the audiobook Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self by Robert Waggoner. There are many speculations of what or who this dream controller may be such as the unconscious self or spirit guide. Personally, I can't say for sure but from my own experience I could entertain the idea that there may be more than one controller and that controller is dependent upon the nature and purpose of the dream.

Naturally, with this contemplation fresh in my consciousness I had a lucid dream in which I relentlessly attempted to control it but alas I surrendered to the Sky God. I looked up to the sky in my dream and requested to be shown something of importance. What do I need to know right now?

The complete dream shift was a big surprise and a bit a intense. After deeper reflection I actually really enjoyed their dream as oppose to the direction I initially wanted to take. I would love for you to read it and leave a comment about what you think. If you're someone who dreams about ex-lovers often you may really enjoy this one!

Ps. I invite you to share your dreams in my forum as I intend it to be a sacred space where we connect, share and learn from one another.
