oHi guys, I was wondering whether you guys feel like you're more likely to get lucid within a postive or negative themed dream, or whether it has no influence?
In my own experience, most of the dreams I have tend to be neutral, although I dream about things that COULD be construed as negative, I very rarely have a strong emotional reaction to them, so I consider the overall theme neutral. However, the emotionally themed lucid dreams I can remember tend to be negatively themed. Of course, that could just be a bias because our dream content tends to be more negative anyway.
In addition to this, from most of the reports I've seen from "natural" lucid dreamers or people that started learning to lucid dream from a young age, it's usually as a way to overcome nightmares.
So, I wonder if negative dreams are more likely to produce lucid dreams compared to postive dreams, or whether it just seems that way due to the fact that our dreams are more likely to be negative.
