Lucid Dreams: Understanding and Risks
A lucid dream is a dream in which the dreamer is aware they are dreaming while they are still in the dream. In a lucid dream, the dreamer may have some control over the characters, narrative, or environment, but this is not a requirement for it to be considered a lucid dream. Lucid dreaming has been a subject of interest for many years, with prominent figures from various historical periods seeking to comprehend its causes and purpose.

While lucid dreaming can have positive effects on different aspects of life, some potential risks have been noted. Those who have never experienced a lucid dream may be taken aback by the sensation, causing feelings of stress, confusion, or worry. On the other hand, some individuals may feel empowered by the newfound control they have over their dreams. Regular lucid dreamers may become isolated from others due to their unique experiences, and those with certain mental illnesses may struggle to differentiate reality from the dream world.
Sleep Paralysis vs Lucid Dreams
A small percentage of people may confuse sleep paralysis with lucid dreaming. Although the two conditions may appear similar, there are differences that distinguish them. Sleep paralysis occurs when a person partially wakes up during REM atonia, a state of partial paralysis that prevents movement. Sleep paralysis may also be accompanied by hallucinations, which can be frightening but do not cause physical harm. Common hallucinations include the presence of an intruder, a crushing feeling on the chest or back, and the sensation of flying or levitating. Approximately 7.6% of the general population has experienced sleep paralysis at least once. To exit sleep paralysis and fully awaken, one can focus on a part of their body, such as a finger, and start moving it, gradually working their way through the rest of their body.
