My name is Tadas and I am an MSc student in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University .
In my dissertation project I am exploring possibilities of creative problem solving in lucid dreams and I am looking for experienced lucid dreamers to join this study.
AIM: To explore possibility of creative problem solving in lucid dreams with the help of dream characters.
METHODS: The study will be carried out over the period of 10 consecutive days. Each night before going to sleep the participants will be given a creative task/problem to solve. They will be asked:
a) to memorise the problem before going to sleep
b) to induce a lucid dream (using preferred technique)
c) to find an old wise man/guru/spiritual guide figure in the dream
d) to ask him or her for help and ask for an answer to the given problem
e) to wake up and record the answer
PARTICIPANTS: Two groups will be used: lucid dreamers and a control group of non lucid dreamers. Participants should be 18+ years old.
Of course, I do not expect that the lucid dreamers will be able to have a lucid dream every night for 10 days in a row
If you could have a lucid dream in 5 out of 10 nights, it would be fine, 3 would be OK as well.
There is a lack of scientific evidence in the area of lucid dreaming and I believe this could be an important and groundbreaking study and you could make history in lucid dreaming research!
So please do not hesitate to sign up!
If you have any questions please post it here and I will be more than happy to answer!
