41. Mia Lux: Transforming Fear Through Lucid Dreaming

Season 2, Ep. 41

In this captivating episode of Stay Grounded, Raj Jana speaks with Mia Lux, a oneironaut and recovering lawyer who has dedicated the last 7+ years to mastering the art of lucid dreaming. With extensive training in both modern psychological and neurological approaches, as well as the Tibetan Buddhist lineage, Mia shares her expertise in teaching practical and effective methods for meaningful lucid dream practice. What began as a personal quest to overcome her crippling fear of death has evolved into a powerful pathway for Mia's own psychological integration and spiritual development, and she now guides others on this transformative journey.


Key takeaways:

  • Lucid dreaming is a powerful tool for psychological integration, healing, and personal growth, allowing practitioners to confront their fears and shadows within the dream space.
  • The unconscious mind is highly intelligent and creative, offering personalized guidance and insights through dream symbolism and interactions.
  • Tibetan Buddhists view lucid dreaming as a practice for preparing for death, recognizing the dream state as a reflection of the dying process.
  • Cultivating a healthy relationship with death can lead to a more authentic and purposeful life, as it helps individuals prioritize what truly matters.
  • The fear of death is often rooted in a deeper fear of non-existence and the dissolution of the ego, which can be confronted through lucid dreaming and other spiritual practices.


This episode serves as an invitation to explore the vast potential of lucid dreaming as a path to self-discovery, healing, and spiritual growth. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or new to the concept, Mia's insights and expertise will inspire you to approach your dreams with a newfound sense of curiosity and reverence. By embracing the wisdom of the unconscious mind and confronting the shadows within, lucid dreaming offers a profound opportunity to deepen your understanding of yourself and the nature of reality.
