sami said:Maybe to the channeler that's true, but to generalize it for everyone else is outrageous.
Stephen LaBerge, a sleep scientist will disagree (that lucid dreaming is mainly for entertainment) because according to his research a lot can be gained from lucid dreaming:
1- Overcoming Nightmares
2- Overcoming Phobias
3- Creative Problem Solving
4- Practice & rehearsal for unlimited events
So I guess the C's are wrong on this one
Hi sami. Bear in mind that one of the things that the Cs have been saying repeatedly since the start is that 'all there is is lessons'. In an absolute sense, then, it is true that one can learn with lucid dreaming - like with anything else! But that was not what the question was about, nor the response. It was more about how useful it could be for growth and spiritual development, and the answer "not really" means that it is not very useful.
It's like asking "how useful is TV for learning?". The answer is "Not much, really'. And then a third person says "But wait! The other day I watched this very good show and it got me thinking, so I guess watching TV is good for learning after all!" Well, yeah, everything has potential for being a learning experience, even if just a little. But that's not really the point here.
More to the point: It may be that some people find it easier to manage phobias through lucid dreaming, but I really doubt it would help overcome the real problem, of which phobias are most probably just the symptom.
