I think lucid dreaming is soon going to be the most exciting hobby in the world.
There is so much to be explored and I think it’s going to blow up big time.
I’m getting pretty excited about sharing my new book with everyone because it’s going to dramatically increase the amount of lucid dreams you can have each week.
Now that you’re going to become lucid all the time there is so much you’re going to be able to do regularly.
My extreme version of the future
Have you ever seen the movie, Demolition Man? It was pretty popular and starred Sly Stallone, Wesley Snipes, and Sandra Bullock, so you’ve maybe seen it. The story isn’t important, but the way they had sex was.
The film was set in the future and they discovered a new way to have sex. In order to stop the spread of disease, if you wanted to have sex you had to sit opposite someone and both of you would wear a piece of headgear that simulated sexual feelings.
I know you’re probably thinking what on earth future sex has to do with lucid dreaming, but it wasn’t the sex part I was interested in. It was the fact there was a new way to do something that everyone in the world thought was normal.
When I first started this website my dream was that one day lucid dreaming would be like futuristic headgear sex. Everyone in the world would be doing it and they could also do it whenever they pleased.
I hope, and I’m confident, lucid dreaming will become something that everyone does, not just to fly around and have fun, but to improve their life in many different ways.
My handstand experiment
Before I talk about the future, I should give you an update on the experiment I set out to test. I wanted to see if it was possible to learn how to perform a handstand in the dream world.
I don’t have much to tell you because to be honest I haven’t put in the effort that was required. I only practiced it within the dream world a few times and it was only because I was thinking of something to do and I remembered about it. I don’t think I actually set my intention to do handstands at all.
I do remember 5 attempts I made in the few months after I wrote the article and the results were as follows:
- Twice I was able to perform a handstand and hold it
- Twice my forearms crumbled and I couldn’t do it
- Once I held the handstand then got lifted into the air by some unknown force
I’m going to start dedicating a little more time to it. Because it’s more complicated than I first imagined it would be, I’d prefer to perform it about 100 times before I attempt a handstand in the real world. I really want this one to work, so rushing it isn’t the right thing to do.
I’ll have the final results sometime later in the year. In the handstand experiment I’m only practicing in the dream world, but when I experiment with skills in the future it’s going to be a mixture of dream world and real world practice.
I don’t see why you would want to learn something solely in the dream world, but instead you should use the dream world practice alongside your real world practice to help you improve your skills quicker than ever before.
Exciting times lie ahead
What other exciting things can we expect to see over the next few years? Where do you think lucid dreaming is headed? I’m ready to perform hundreds of experiments over the next decade and beyond, but I wanted to discuss some crazy ideas that are sitting inside my head at the moment.
Please comment below and let me know whether or not you think they are possible. Some of them might not be impossible, but they are my visions for the future and I’m at least going to test them.
Have you ever had a dream, lucid or not, that has seemed to last forever? It’s one of the best feelings in the world and I don’t think it happens by accident.
My plan is to find a way to manipulate time so you can stretch the amount of time you spend in the dream world each night.
I’ve already spoke about this when I mentioned overcoming my fear of heights. I took a job where I was working on high roofs every day and I was petrified. After experimenting with height in my lucid dreams I became much more confident about working up on the roofs.
I strongly believe you can reprogram your thoughts inside a lucid dream and in the future I’m hoping it will be able to help people with:
- Anxiety disorders
- Confidence issues
- Eating disorders
…Plus a whole load more. I’m basically hoping (and quietly confident) it will help anyone fix any mental problem they might have, or at least the ones that can be cured by changing your thoughts.
Learning new skills
We hear a lot about learning new skills inside the dream world, but there are not many examples to showcase. I plan to change that by experimenting with a few of my own:
- Learning to draw
- Learning to sing
- Learning to speak a new language
- Learning an instrument
Those are just a few examples and the list could go on forever.
Some of the other lucid dreaming benefits you might hear about are:
- Problem solving
- Creative thinking
I think it’s amazing when I hear someone tell me they’ve thought of a great idea inside a lucid dream, and I’ve done it myself. When you wake up you really think you’re going to change the world. It’s also amazing when they tell me they’ve solved a big problem.
You might hear about things like this, but it’s usually just a random comment someone makes. I hope to go into a dream specifically to think of ideas and to solve problems then I’ll come back and report back to you.
Increasing your strength
This is just a hypothesis I made last year and I didn’t have any intention of experimenting with it until after the handstand experiment, but I do believe it will be possible to increase your strength inside the dream world.
It probably won’t be of any use to you, but I think it will help top-level athletes increase their lifts by a few kilos. I’m positive it will be part of the training program athletes follow to train for the Olympics in the future.
That’s not all
I won’t bother listing everything, but just know the experiments will never stop. They will consist of some you might expect, plus lots you wouldn’t have even thought of.
Lucid Ability results
You won’t really know if anything I tell you is the truth, or if I’m just making stuff up inside my head. When you hear about the results from some of my experiments it might blow your mind. You might not believe them, or you might just be very skeptical.
Everything happens inside my dreams and I can’t do anything about that.
The proof from my experiments will come from trying things yourself. Lucid Ability’s (plus my own) reputation is based on the articles I share with you. That means you can guarantee I won’t write about anything I’m not confident you could easily do yourself when you become lucid.
Your success is the Lucid Ability’s success, so please try to have an open mind in the future and test things out for yourself.
