    Hi.

    Previously I wrote:
    Some members here have suggested lucid dreaming dangerous, which I reckon a matter of personal intent.

    My use for such things is as innocent as harmless in that I've trained myself mainly to evade nightmares and/or heighten my creativity, e.g. when in a dark place,

    I find and follow a light that, for my love of architecture, allows not only escape but delightful exploration. What about you? Beyond that I enjoy hearing about the reveries of persons whom are either experienced or new at such dreaming, there are many claims online in regard to peoples’ thereby practicing time travel. Do your dreams take you to other realms and/or times? Or, if you'd like to try to lucid dream, read 3 Ways to Lucid Dream - wikiHow

    Dream lucidity is awareness that you are dreaming. This awareness can range from a faint recognition of the fact to a momentous ...Transcendental dreams.

    Provided the above example of some of my lucid dreams together with my leaning toward theme music, I cannot resist posting a song. I prefer the audio of the original while a cover of it has a dreamier video. So, if you wish, listen to the first audio while watching the second video, muted.

    Herein I want to provide more concrete examples of how to turn common nightmares, e.g. one's being either trapped in a never-ending house and/or chased-- into fun self- discovery. Discovery of self? Yes, structures are said to be symbolic of the inner self.

    I used to more commonly have such recurrent dreams that weren't exactly nightmares. The more fascinating I found them, the more empowering they seemed as my subconscious learned to easily resort to them-- to find refuge in their architecturally complex structures (see descriptions of links to illustrations below). Often, they looked deceptively smaller from the outside and had both huge basements and many secret passages. Frequently, too, they contained unusual contents that were strangely fixating whereupon I chose to focus on their detail. So lost could I become in intricacy that I tended toward hidden exits just in case anything unexpected startled me.

    The promised photographs and links (should the former either be removed or fail to appear) are to serve as indication of how you might use visual aids to steer your dreams, good/intended or bad/unintended, toward select/strategic settings. If a picture is directly above the link, click only the first hypertext whereby to explore below the mini-cabin*.
