You have to help the subconcious to overcome 'it's fear.
The point is who are you in a dream? Who is in control in your dream?
As I read here somewhere and also can confirm myself you can act in a dram like you would never act in real life because it's against your wake
nature. Sure it is your subconcious but it is acting like another person and it somehow does and has own experiences and most importand does not have
your wake knowledge. At least not the full one.
So you can kind of teach it.
And here is where lucid dreaming is very very helpful. Once you learned within a concious controlled dream that there is no real danger in a dream the
subconcious learns it with you.
The change in the view of the nature of a dream also changes the experience in the subconcious the way that the danger is seen a lot less dangerous
also in normal not concious dreams.
What you usually would experience as nightmare can turn into just a normal dream or even into the oposite into a kind of action movie you just enjoy
like you enjoy watching it on tv with the exception that you enjoy it even more intensive because you are playing an active rolle in it and
subconcious know there is no danger.
to the op:
if you can not do lucid dreaming than you need to seek another way to get your subconcious the confident that there is 'no real' danger within a
The way how you can do this is what is your task to find out.
Eighter this or you can try to find a root in real life causing you this dreams. (byway it migth also be physical ..you said the wave hurt?)
Often, but by far not everytime there is a root cause in real life for nightmares. If there is none then this is a non successfull path
Dreaming is a playground and once you overcome the fear component it is one of the most awesome things you can experience
I got the impression that you are a bit too selective and fix in believeing what is possible for you to archive and what not and what is helfull to
overcome this and what not. There is no do this and it is fixed solution.
You'll have to find your way and make your experience. You best can do it by not limiting your options too much in ahead.
