    Hi Jesus Lover, I suppose I should first ask what you term as lucid. Are you in fact attempting to discern or interupt your dreams as having revelance to your life, and/or others? In another thread you mentioned a friend being in the occult, and I hope not influencing your actions here as you say you have control of participating or not in that activity. Your dad may have an insight to your dreams that you don't. :shrug

    Count me in same as wanting to know as Eugene said.

    'Lucid dreaming' is a new one for me. I just done a quick read up of it after Googling it, but if you could explain it in relation to you, that would be great.

    A lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer is aware of dreaming. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment. And if you are wondering i got the information from this website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucid_dream

    I have dreams where I am aware that I'm dreaming but this is only a recent thing. It's usually the case that I'm dreaming and am not aware, at least that awareness isn't revealed in the dream. I have lots of dreams and they are similar. I don't try to analyze them but I suppose they are telling me something of my deeper conscious thoughts. Lots of my dreams have to do with trying to get somewhere, being lost, going the wrong way, and never arriving. Other dreams where I'm late for teaching my class and students are missing. When I get there, I'm totally unprepared, and the class is total chaos. Parents are in the room watching. Then those dumb dreams where I am being attacked and I fight back with my expert karate skills. I've kicked the dog, punched my wife, and once kicked her straight in the knee cap and she cried for a long time. I guess I got her really good. She was mad at me for days.

    I guess it would depend on where you steered the dream.
    Regular dreaming is considered by many psychologists to be necessary for normal functioning. By directing your dreams, you may be interrupting the body's natural processes.

    Thank you, Jesus lover. I did actually read that bit but there were heaps of other articles as well which made me think there were lots of ways lucid dreaming could be used and I wondered what you had been experiencing. Like if you do lucid dreaming and spirit guides come to your then that means big trouble. It means you are being targeted by demons who seek to deceive you. Since I have had to cast out a few demons I can assure you they do deceive, they do get inside to varying levels, they do mean you harm. In Christ we have power but we do not open doors to the enemy. I am not saying you do this with lucid dreaming but I was wondering.

    As Jim Parker said above, it is what lucid dreaming is used for that makes the difference between good or bad.

    It appears from the science of it that lucid dreaming itself is rare but natural. And not so rare for those who work on practicing it so can do it more often. One article for example: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-to-control-dreams/

    My personal take on it, after reading about it, is that it is unlikely in its natural state to be of the devil. But a person who is using it unwisely, I believe, could bring themselves great harm. Like electricity, it is a good thing but do not put your finger in the power socket, it can kill. There is a problem with all of this: If you live at home and your dad don't want you to do it then I think it best for you to do what ya dad says. I do not know if you can have discussion about it with your dad. Sort things out. Are you able to ask him, nicely, to help you to understand why he has that view on it? Are you able to show him articles from the 'net that talk about the science of sleep and how lucid dreaming seems to happen naturally from time to time? Maybe you can, maybe you can't. Living with parents can be a strain at times.

    Dreaming seems to be the way the brain dumps short-term storage. So maybe not so good to mess with it.

    I notice that I seem to have the ability to change a dream that goes in a direction I find disturbing or otherwise objectionable. In my dream, I make a certain hand gesture, and I get a reset. But since one only remembers dreams one has shortly before waking, it might be a sort of halfway state that lets me do this.

    Lucid dreams are from the devil. I pray that you are freed from your curse.

    You’re under heavy spiritual attacks from learning the occults. Lucid dream, astral projection, out of body... these are from the demonic realm.

    Email me as I need to ask you some personal question and I’ll try my best to assist you on this issues. You don’t need a priest! Have NO fear, Jesus are setting people like you freed 24/7.

    The only fear you need to have is fear the Lord.
