4. Integrating the above skills into a mindfulness practice
Mindfulness promotes awareness of the mind, self-reflection, and recognizing when we have become lost in thought.
During sleep, we are completely lost in thought – we’re lost in our dreams without realizing that we’re dreaming. That is, unless we regain awareness during the dream and become lucid.
Mindfulness provides the perfect framework for practicing lucid dreaming wisely.
Lucid dreaming enables conscious awareness within our own subconscious mind. This is a profound method for self-exploration, creative experimentation, and having truly transcendent experiences.
Lucid dreaming is a safe, natural practice which opens many doors to self-discovery and self-integration.
Our dreams are full of insight and wisdom. By lucid dreaming, we can embrace that insight and use that wisdom rather than ignoring it night after night.

You sleep for one third of your life
Research shows that people dream about emotionally significant content. In other words, we dream about what matters to us.
Also, given all the benefits we are seeing from millions of people practicing mindfulness and paying closer attention to the nature of their mind... why are we neglecting the dreaming mind?
We can get more familiar with our dreams by writing them down and reflecting upon them. And more importantly, we can become conscious while we're dreaming. Through these simple lucid dreaming practices, we can integrate and bridge the gap between our sleeping and waking minds.
