Lucid dreaming is when you are conscious while sleeping. You sleep but you are aware that you are sleeping
Nikkhil
Its good for relaxation actually. But when you are conscious while dreaming, Your psychological ailments may affect your experience. If you are in good health mentally and physically, lucid dreaming can be a wonderful experience.

I've experienced sleep paralysis and it's scary at first. Been too long since I had one. But need to experience lucid sleep yet. Sounds wonderful. Was thinking of trying maruijana to hit it
kamal
wht is solution of sleep paralysis. ?
sejal
Sorry bro. You can't have lucid dream by marijuana. and to overcome sleep paralysis just relax and go with the dream.
Pranav
So how to achieve it
kamal
Lucid dream
kamal
dont listen to pranav wadnere, its not that marijuana cant but if you dont smoke it wont help. also sleep paralysis is more than what we are told, the fact that its called sleep paralysis is to label it as just that, oh its just a little sleep paralysis no biggie. but fight fight fight, dont let in!
Rey
i struggled with it for years, since 2011 and it was so intense i couldnt sleep at night for fear of being attacked by demons/energy that was real and would present itself in different forms. i kept fighting against it untill one day i used my own energy to repel it and end my cycles of paralysis..
Rey
1) Perform reality checks. • habit yourself to check mirror, clock, and written texts throughout day. you can't see yourself in mirrors, can't read time and texts in dreams. • Try passing ur hand through ur palm. u can do it in lucid dreams. 2) Keep a dream journal 3) Practice meditation daily
Pranav
but I hv few experience in my sleep.. tht few animals attacked me and I try to move but I couldn't.. I literally scared to death.. I hv experienced it more often nowadays
sejal
permanent solution?
sejal
So you meant to say that to get in the state of lucid dreams we can use marijuana to achieve it
kamal
Hello to the discussion. When I had those parlzing dreams. I lived in a certian area and when I moved it stopped.
Shannon
They always said if you want to know if you are dreaming pinch yourself. Mirrors, clocks in dreams wow, now thats dreaming.
Shannon
Rey. Even I struggled a lot and so did my mom. But once I just let it in. I allowed the monster in(A female demon). As usual she was trying to choke me. But now I knew this is a dream. so I laughed out loud. The demon was ineffective. And meditation helped me a lot.
Pranav
but I couldn't move my body.. thts the problem.. for few minutes I m stoned ..I need help
sejal
Kamal I would advice you not you use marijuana If u aren't above 25. And such practices may allow u to achieve much better state of mind. but use of drugs can impact your mental stability.
Pranav
are you a frequent lucid dreamer?
Mahesh
Actually i am 29 now but it's been 16 months since I had an accident related to brain and since then I've become a changed personality. All my hobbies have changed even I've stopped watching movies. Must be because of my inability to focus on something for too long post accident. Really don't know.
kamal
you made a bad decision on letting them in😢, thats what the goal is, to go into your life and give you abilities/goods/comfort. the best way to take advantage of someone is to play it nice and offer them a twisted reality of good to keep the person hooked while they are taken advantage of.
Rey
my experience happend because i was becoming enlightened, the sleep paralysis was a fear tactic to shut me down. but instead pushed me to find inner power and wisdom. the last time i was awake and a light was coming out my chest, i pushed the demon with all my force,where it was right in my face.
Rey
after this it never bothered me again, to this day though i still think about what really was going on at the time. i have looked into different possibilities and at other peoples cases. my friends and some cousins have similar experiences but they dont understand what is going on, which is an issue
Rey
i wish to help people with, but what i learned is that its up to the indivisual what path they want to take. personaly i dont believe they are real demons attacking people, but energy that we carry with us from our surroundings and our own output. Pranav i think you found a different way to overcome
Rey
the attacks but not everyone can and shouldnt let them in.. you used your ability to change your perspective, giving you the power from god to denounce the energy and create a new power and wisdom growth, which is necessary for the change thats coming

behavioralists and humanists I presume!
Urooj

Shafeeq
it appears to be a depth check into the internal experience of whom you have found yourself to be, and wether it reflects what some people may have wished to find themselves being. the congruency vs incongruence seems a debate, Taoism vs motivation like "be better than you are!"

Humanistic, humanism and humanist are terms in psychology relating to an approach which studies the whole person, and the uniqueness of each individual. ... Sometimes the humanistic approach is called phenomenological. This means that personality is studied from the point of view of the individual's

as a psychologist we are not study people's mind, we are observed, explained, predict, control,describes. example we describe human behaviour :when we study the human behavior, then it will help us to describe behaviour of a particular person.

Julie
Julie u need to tke proper rest. If u don't stay well u can't tke care of others. U should have atlst 6hrs of slp, pls arrange accordingly.
Anindya
waking reset the norepinephrine and seratonin and the effects of this reaccuring causes many changes to the mind body and physical being , long term is another factor.think of being in war effects
Joni
btw the case studies performed via epidemiological data and many other research is lacking in evidence to say proof is valid in what is or isn't just so everyone gets clear on this.ill enlighten ya but I lack text space
Joni
delerium is an effect that many will struggle through due to this sleep wake scenerio ,many other factors associate as well but no one will experience the same as another as there is no actual process of this happening ,ones beliefs , experiences and insight weigh deep into explaining an outline
Joni
over time and training individual skill can develop increasing or decreasing basic response and reaction,flexibility ,mobility,there is no study that has had people in controlled environment to actually proove these or any of the information thus far and wats needed is an joining of control methods
Joni
joni like what of changes to the body mind and physical as being be specific please..thanks

Hi. Is it a self identification or a clinical one?
Anindya
talk to someone about it and know you aren't alone.
potato
what a problem?
Diferent
there on numbers you can't text if you don't want to call
potato
You can try exercise and cold showers as an immediate solution and then make research on the internet (I would recommend to begin with a youtube chanel called What I Learned)
Do something you like and feel ease? Don't think about things that depressing you! Usually I will fill my stomach with my fav food and will take a nap when I am upset or if something depressing me. Next morning or after waking I will wakeup with smiling and bright :-)

I will Recommend a building internal Believe in your ability and hoping a Better life you deserve with Doing Something Nice like going out side a place you fell depressed and Looking a Comedy Movies with Having a plan to your brighter future and Try to be optimistic as much as u can..
Darbaz
1.you don't live alone. 2.you should be talk to freely with other.3.if you like to play any sports you will do this. when you feel depression you will go to hospital. you understand your mind that I have no problem.Finally you give up your depression.
Md
Depression doesn't have one quick and simple solution such as eating your favorite food or doing your favorite things, depression can make those things no longer fun or enjoyable anymore (speaking from experience). I cope with it by constantly changing up my schedule and trying out different things
Abigail
to keep myself busy. Depression can be a long term struggle, but a therapist can help with the process of getting back to where you want to be, through group therapy and prescriptions. Just don't be afraid to get help from professionals, or switch between them for one you feel more comfortable with.
Abigail
Meditate And you will be fine.

Does nagging causes depression?
Binta
Depression can be caused by constant nagging if it gives the recipient a feeling of worthlessness. Constant nagging can also burn a bridge because the recipient may feel like they can't trust the nagger to provide support and understanding. Hope that helps.
Jake
I myself struggle with depression and have tried many of the above techs but the ones that have helped me the most came from RSD Julien; those are...1) practice gratitude, 2) embrace feeling negative (make it your armor), 3) take care of the basics(masterbation, exercise, healthy food;
juan
communication, friends and meditation) 4) do something for yourself, 5) get to the cause.
juan
Hello Okafor Princess, I will say that when somebody says, "Just be happy", that's the wrong thing to say. But if I may make my own long story short, I was healed of depression six years ago. I know that if God did that for me, then He can do it for you, too. There is hope and support.
Jake
another tip, even if you are not happy the act of physically smiling releases serotonin, dopamine and endorphins.
juan
Juan Roa very useful
Anindya
activating mirror neurons also have the same effect, so look at pictures of other people smiling
juan
You don't have to believe in a diety or other superstitions to get the same euthoric chemical release in you're brain, however, be careful of religious groups telling you to just be happy or that their rituals/belief will be the way out. Please trust medical PROFESSIONALS who have studied for years
Abigail
and have a higher education and understanding then religious groups, of human biochemistry.

Start with writing down when you are depressed, date, time, what you have on ect track as much infirmation of what depression looks like. 2nd write down all the emotions that you are feeling with depression that way you have a written record of what it feels like.

good or bad. just our own baised belief on what benifits us or doesnt. like we think our existence is good but yet its dealing negative affects on our surroundings which is bad so where is the good or bad? its an illusion, just like memory, we create the memory we dont actually remember the moment.
