I have decades of experience lucid dreaming discipline. In order to do it, you need tons of energy. You can wake up exhausted from a full nights sleep. But it has certain advantages. Mainly in learning about the unseen & unknown. Sometimes if you are trying hard to find solutions to life’s advanced trials, it is indespensible. I guess it’s my form of meditation. I worked so long at it that I produced a double that could be seen & heard. I guess I got carried away. When that happens I have to discipline myself not to lapse into dreaming state while I’m awake. It happens. God only knows if I’ve been seen distantly while asleep & really projecting full force?
