Oneiric Health and Oneiric Lucidity
The study of the relation between mental health and oneiric lucidity is an important part of the research on lucid dreaming. Perhaps because most of the researchers in this area are psychologists, and the possibility of using a new and efficient tool for psychotherapeutic practices is important to them. We know the evidence for a relation between lucid dreaming and psychic equilibrium is circumstantial. Some subjects, with strong psychological problems, dream lucidly, regularly, and spontaneously, while apparently, well-balanced subjects do not succeed in their attempts to induce lucidity. The contrary is also true. This leads us to the following remark: lucid dreaming is not in itself an indicator of mental health. Nevertheless, we know that it can contribute to the recovery of one’s psychic equilibrium, by following an appropriate method.
