“Our results indicate that self-reflection in everyday life is more pronounced in persons who can easily control their dreams”
It does seems kind of obvious, that awareness in daily life would lead to awareness in dreams. That's certainly been my experience, not that I'm a "super" lucid dreamer or something. But since I've "gotten the meditation thing done", the lucid dreaming has definitely increased from close to nothing to not uncommon. I think it's particularly useful to closely examine one's environment in a lucid dream, and also to meditate within the dream.
