Psychonaut. The state of lucidity may not be restricted to the unconscious mind so the modern psychonaut has to intentionally actuate a modified state of consciousness. This is necessary to have a deeper dive into the mind, investigate what is in the subconscious, and unravel your truest desires. Different members train to be psychonauts for different reasons: to answer spiritual questions, to make sense of direct experiences, and most importantly, to master the lucid state.
This community explores these alterations in the mental state through the influence of psychotropic medications of different mechanisms. Psychedelics allow them to see a new reality that they cannot see in their normal mental state. It is vital to note that some people are prone to drug addiction and substance abuse so one must take these pieces of advice with care, make sure that you are under the guidance of an expert, and remind yourself that you do this not entirely for the pleasure but also for self-development.
The r/Psychonaut explores experiences under the influence of LSD while witnessing the most important events, a meditation guide for the psychonaut, and first-hand experience of spiritual baptism.
These communities may serve as guides to the modern lucid dreamer. Use these threads as resources for first-hand experiences, techniques, and how-to’s to guide you on your journey to achieving the lucid state.
