A personal exploration of lucid dreaming through various studies, techniques, interviews, and collages.
Dreams have always had a special place in my heart. They provide a space where my subconscious is able to explore hidden realms that my conscious mind is often too busy to think about. I have always had incredibly wild and intense dreams that are too abstract to try and analyze or tie back to real world experiences. In high school, a friend brought up the phenomenon of lucid dreaming. For her, when she dreamt something so bizarre that it couldn’t happen in real life, she became conscious inside her dream. I became so fascinated by the idea that one could become aware of dreaming within in a dream, that I decided to teach myself how to lucid dream.
