While looking through the Psychology textbook I came across Chapter 5: Consciousness. This chapter starts to deal with the mind and other forms of consciousness such as dreaming. I found the section on dreaming especially interesting because the other night I had a lucid dream in which I was in control of what went on in my dream. These types of experiences are one of the weirdest yet exciting feelings imaginable. Being able to control what goes on, how things act, and people behave in your dream is one of the coolest feelings that you may encounter. Not only that but being able to disregard the laws of the natural world you are able to access a different type of creativity in your dreams that cannot be replicated anywhere else. Another part of this section that I found interesting was the section on insomnia. This section relates directly to me as I have mild insomnia and currently prescribed sleeping pills to keep me on a regular sleep pattern. By taking these pills it causes me to enter a deeper REM sleep and I have found that my lucid dreams dramatically increase when kept in this deep REM sleep. Being able to experience these lucid dreams on a bi-weekly basis has resulted in me sleeping longer, waking up feeling refreshed every morning, and improving my mood overall.
