The other day, I started asking my daughter about her ability to control her dreams. She said that she can always dream what she wants--it's not a sometimes thing. After all these years I finally started taking her more seriously. Maybe she really does have this ability!
I was also curious to see if there was any connection between lucid dreams and Melatonin. We give our daughter Melatonin to help her sleep at night. Otherwise, she has a hard time turning her brain off and can stay awake all night. Interestingly, there seems to be a connection between lucid dreams and Melatonin. Many people who pursue lucid dreams actually take Melatonin to help them. From what I researched, many people believe you need to already be able to lucid dream, but the Melatonin increases the frequency of lucid dreaming.
I don't know if my daughter had lucid dreams before taking the Melatonin. I can't remember when she started talking about these dreams.
I'm definitely taking her claims more seriously now. I also wish I had the ability to control my dreams. I would probably spend every night dreaming about eating the most amazing desserts while I was nice and thin. Then I would fly all over the place. Because I could!
What would you dream about?
