Can Lucid Dreaming make you psycic / increase your IQ?
PostPosted: Thu 21 Aug, 2008  Reply with quote

I think it's lucid dreaming, for some reason I think I've become a tiny bit psychic. I'm not seeing dead people or anything like that, it's just my decision making and instinct has lead me to choose the right decisions more often than usual on a daily bases. Like for example in decision making, I know it's very small and to be fair it is rather small, but there's a gambling machine/game on Pokemon Gold were there's a prize in one square in a square grid, I forgot how many are in the grid but if you've played Pokemon Gold and you've played the square grid gambling machine, you know the one. Anyway, you get a few tries, and my instinct directed me towards selecting a specific square and it was right, so I got that square the first time and I got lots of whatever the prize was. That's only a little example though.

Another example is that often when I'm playing Final Fantasy XII on the PS2 downstairs, almost every time I have a thought about levelling up or think to myself "Why do I have to urge to think it's now?", I kill a monster and then I level up. It's strange.

A real life example was when I told my brother that I thought I was a little psychic, and he gave me a load of "What hand is this in?" questions, and I got them all right using my instinct and basically asking my subconscious to direct me towards the answer. He then picked up a ready meal package and asked me what this sentence said, he then told me three sentences, one being real and two being made up. I didn't know what the food was and I'm really hopeless about cooking knowledge, but yet again I got it right using the same method I used for the other questions.

Reason why I mentioned IQ was because I've found myself more knowledgeable about the human mind and knowing how people feel inside, which often leads to me giving people expert advice and me basically being a good friend to lots of people.

Also, I think I predicted was SSX3 on PS2 would look like before it came out. I used to day dream about what it would be like and properly fantasize about playing it or just watching the intros and FMV's and such. Turns out my day dreams were near enough correct and the host on the DJ that plays throughout the game sounded just like how I imagined him to sound like.

I know by what a friend told me in the past that people that lucid dreaming and give help are generally nice people (Dream Views being a fine example, just look at the difference between On Topic and Off Topic).

I've always been too embarrassed to tell people about lucid dreaming when they ask me how I know all this stuff (which happens to be correct). But is all what I just said true?

eh

Jdeadevil, I believe that Lucid dreaming may be a factor because it increases your focus. However, intuition may be the way to go here, I use my intuition a lot to find an answer, and that has sort of given me a Psychic-ness.

Heh, intuition on Wikipedia. I'm guessing it means "understanding without apparent effort, quick and ready insight seemingly independent of previous experiences or empirical knowledge."

'Cause that's a word I've never actually heard before meh

Exactly. Listening to what your intuition tells you is a way of being psychic in my understanding of it. My intuition is sometimes connected to my lucid dreams.

This is a complicated subject whatsthat

I've had 5 of them, although sometimes it's difficult to tell whether it's a psychic dream or just a dream. shy2

Meditation helps wink

Everybody phycic and using lucid dreams to increase phycic power is something I'm really excited on experimenting on. Like a cheat code to by pass having to train your a** off. Yes I believe it is possible. Mainly because you are much more in control in your dreams. It is one of those unexplored areas of lucid dream, just like using LDing for out of body experiences. I myself am going to see what I can do with phycic and lucid dreaming

It's an interesting topic, I myself have spent months trying to gain LD's and Psychic dreams, with varied successes. I find that concentrated strongly on the subject that I wish to have a "vision" about, the possibility of such happening increases.

I do consider myself psychic ^^

I just need to rely on this little skill more in waking life itself. It would help me out a lot. :D

It takes a bit of concentration, meditation and focus, especially if one is trying to gain a psychic dream.

Isn't there any way to remove the phycic barrier you have in your waking life in your dream? At any rate your Intelligent won't be increased but your ability to gain more intelligence will. Since your mind is more expanded your ability to understand is too.

No offense, but maybe you should lay off the video games a bit? I would be inclined to think lucid dreaming can increase your IQ, but not if all you dream about is fighting monsters and leveling up. You can get better at say playing guitar, but only if that's what you choose to do while lucid. It just seems like every example you wrote about in that first post was about games. Maybe its not that your psychic, but that you just play these games so often that you have subconsciously learned about how long it takes to level even without checking your experience? I've done that lots of times - not to mention in FF games someone levels up around every ten minutes or so spent fighting. How many times did the characters level WITHOUT you predicting it? If the answer to that is more than fifty percent of the time its probably nothing . . .

I don't know about becoming psychic, but lucid dreaming can definitely open your mind to new possibilities.

Thats not very nice neutral

If he likes playing his PS2 that much, there's nothing anyone can do about it.
To each his own..

Anyways, developing psychic powers can happen spontaneously by doing something without noticing it or simply by focusing your awareness on specific things or whatever.. The point is that it can happen without you trying to get it.
Keep in mind, we are all "psychics", that's why it's called supernormal powers etc..
They are all natural human abilities that we lose because of the society, the training and education we go through etc..
Our subconscious is the source to all of this. If we glanced at our mind's full potential, we would be astounded. Your SC is of course easily capable of telling which hand your brother is holding and those kind of things and probably do much more than you can think of. So, heightening intuition and developing other psychic powers are first derived from tapping deeper into your own SC. You also need to balance and develop the chakras, perfect your physical and mental health, focus and more.. All depends on what you're trying to achieve. What you're talking about is very simple indeed and almost any person who will simply meditate once a day will start feeling this way after a couple of weeks.
As to whether LDs can increase psychic powers and the IQ. LDs are adventures in which you are consciously exploring your own SC, so it connects you to yourself and gives you (if you use it correctly) a better view on yourself and your life, and that will of course, make you be more in tact and focused, which could result in an appearing increase in the IQ level and psychic powers. It's very different for each person but the benefits are profound in any case, once you have mastered this ability of course.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Edit:
by the way Peridot, what do you call a psychic dream?
