Lucid dreaming is a technique that is induced or used in training the mind at the conscious level to be aware of what is being dreamt and that we can wake ourselves up from an unconscious level electric dreamscape.
- There are three types of consciousness:
We spoke about repressed memories and how they play out in our panoramic mind or dreamscape and how nightmares are part of our memories and repressed memories is part of this unconscious mindset. Horrific experiences may or may not be repressed in our memories and it looks as though we are having an amnesia episode when we repressed the memories that are horrific to us. Our mind-brain sends out an electrical impulse that is a mechanism to save us from horror or fright that is too much for our minds to handle. Hypnosis can draw out these memories by word association.
Word association and/or hypnosis are also used in Lucid Electric Dreamscapes where we can trick our own minds into thinking and we can control our unconscious state of mind in the electric dreamscape. What is profound is in this suggestive state what is automatic and linked to the word associated with the lucid dream or even repressed memory is an unconditional and uncritical acceptance by each unique individual of what we experience in the world.

(People suffering from nightmares can sometimes be treated by training them to dream lucidly so they can consciously wake up.
An influence in regard to the word association at the time of our experience or belief systems is what we perceive as our reality.
Here is an article about suggestive, preconscious, and/or unconscious level of mindset.
In most cases this influence is thought to occur at either the preconscious or unconscious level. A famous scientific example of suggestive influences occurred at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1903, soon after the discovery of X-rays — a previously unknown type of electromagnetic radiation that was invisible to the human eye — an eminent French physicist by the name of René Blondlotdiscovered what he called N-rays, named after the University of Nancy, which was where he worked. According to Blondlot and his colleagues, N-rays increase the brightness of things. For example, they claimed that N-rays cause electric sparks to appear to be brighter. Blondlot also found evidence that N-rays are emitted by any glowing object, such as the sun or candle flames, and that certain substances absorb N-rays and then emit them later. Because the fluid within our eyes is one of the substances that does this, Blondlot claimed that when N-rays are beamed into people’s eyes, they become better able to see in dark rooms.
In the case of N-rays, a number of physicists became very skeptical after they were unable to replicate the findings. In trying to understand their failure to replicate the findings of other physicists, they pointed to a basic problem in the research: Blondlot and the other researchers judged by sight (that is, subjectively) whether or not the brightness of an object increased. The skeptics argued that suggestion alone — that is, the belief that N-rays were hitting an object — affected researchers’ perceptions of the object’s brightness.
How could we test the claim that suggestion affected the perceived brightness of objects in these studies? The only way to do this would be to use deception: we would need to make observers believe incorrectly that (a) N-rays were being beamed at an object when they really were not and (b) were not being beamed at the object when they really were.
The study is part of what the observer deems to be reality or what is perceived to be, in other words they perceived the object were brighter. (Suggestive)
Many of our experiences in our lives are suggestive and are at the conscious level of our reality. So naturally our electric dreamscapes can be fused or mixed with either the suggestive or what we viewed, for example a horror movie (Could become a delusional belief).
But, this is not to be confused with living a horrible experience in any way shape or form.
Our electric dreamscapes have four stages of dreamscapes. They are: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. The different sleep stages were mentioned in a previous article and it is measured by our pattern of brain waves or electrical activity in our mind-brain.
Scientists from the Max Planck Institutes of Psychiatry in Munich and for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig and from Charité in Berlin have now studied people who are aware that they are dreaming while being in a dream state, and are also able to deliberately control their dreams. Those so-called lucid dreamers have access to their memories during lucid dreaming, can perform actions and are aware of themselves – although remaining unmistakably in a dream state and not waking up. As author Martin Dresler explains, “In a normal dream, we have a very basal consciousness, we experience perceptions and emotions but we are not aware that we are only dreaming. It’s only in a lucid dream that the dreamer gets a meta-insight into his or her state.”
