There is still a great deal of mystery that surrounds dreaming. It seems that it may play a major role in memory consolidation as well as event rehearsal, but the jury’s still out on the exact mechanisms at play here.
You may have heard the term “lucid dreaming,” the ability to recognize when you are in a dream and even control what happens next. For those skeptical of such claims, lucid dreaming has in fact been proven in the lab, as subjects were able to deliberately communicate with researchers while in a dream in a predetermined manner.
In my own personal exploration of this space, I’ve become lucid in dreams and experienced flight in a way that felt completely realistic. Practiced meditators tend to become conscious in their dreams more often. Why? The increase of metacognitive awareness throughout waking life carries over into sleep, which is just another form of consciousness.
