Dreams in general are pretty fascinating topic but the magic of lucid dreaming might be one of the most awesome things our brain is capable of doing that we know of.  To start with, lucid dreaming is defined as a dream during which a dreamer is aware of the fact that they are dreaming.

Suicide Forest in Japan

Image
The forest by the name of Aokigahara or popularly known as the suicide forest is located at base of Mount Fuiji in Japan. The forest is special for a very high density of trees, two caves (the Ice Cave and the Wind Cave), the lack of wildlife which makes this forest a very quiet place and, strangely, the number one spot for suicide in Japan. Besides Japan, Aokigahara is among top three of the most popular suicide spots in the world. These statistics and the quietness of the forest both created the idea that the area is haunted.
There have been so many suicides in this forest that it is not a shocker for the innocent walkers to discover skeletons. According to mirror.co.uk police retrieves dozens of bodies every year from the forest and the authorities believe there are numerous undiscovered corpses lying underground. The exact number of suicides is unknown although in 2003 it was made public that 105 confirmed suicides took place in Aokigahara. Some evidence suggest that the dark histo…

Events took place in the middle of the 20th century to my friend’s family. It was evening when parents put their daughter to sleep and soon they went to bed as well. In the middle of the night, parents were awoken from their sleep by their daughter.“I’m scared” – she said. Parents brushed her off probably thinking their daughter had a nightmare or that, whatever it is she was afraid of, was nothing but child’s imagination. Therefore they did what majority of parents would have done.“There is nothing to be afraid of. Go to sleep” – they said.The girl listened to her parents and went back to her bedroom. The entire house fell asleep again. However, soon after parents were awoken from their sleep by their daughter one more time.“I’m scared” – that’s all she said once again. Parents tried to convince her that there is nothi…
