Earn to dream lucidly because everyone dreams every night Lucid dreamers develop a frame of mind that allows them to recognize when they are dreaming From that point they are free to do as they choose This. I read this book a long time ago and afterwards actually had a lucid dreaming experience Having reread it it s a good introduction I m going to read LaBerge s other books to get insight into developing this skill If you re really interested and want to know that lucid dreaming is this is a decent start if you really want to try it you will want to read One of the nfortunate things about being interested in lucid dreaming is the lack of literature on the topic Actually the lack of intelligent thought out and well written literature On a whole lucid dreaming books have too much of the author s own opinion and not enough research in addition to mediocre writing What I want is a well researched well written and scholarly book that doesn t read like the author s dream journalThis book almost fulfills my wish It is well written The author is scholarly and has spent years researching the subject There are examples of other people s dreams than the author s I read it all the way through However it doesn t break free of my stereotype of lucid dreaming books While its the best I ve encountered in its class it is still in that class It is not scholarly nor is it well researched even though the author himself is those things It is like a conversation with a smart and knowledgable person on the subject rather than a treatise Wikipedia shares information on the subject in a concise fashion If you re interested in the facts Wikipedia shares information on the subject in a concise fashion If you re interested in the facts history of lucid dreaming go there However if you re interested in the opinions and impressions of an intelligent well read and experienced lucid dreamer then read this book If you search Lucid Dreaming on Google within fifteen seconds Stephen s name will ndoubtedly come p He s a major player in the lucid dreaming world not only as an author but as a scientist and researcher Because of the work he and a few others performed lucid dreaming was proven real and not just a trick of the mind It was a cool experiment someone would go into REM rapid eye movement sleep get lucid in the dream and send a signal to their physical body The signal was a distinct back and forth movement of the eyes so the observer would know the dreamer was lucid It worked and the rest is historyThis book is solid It contains a wealth of information for anyone who wants to learn how to lucid dream from the basics writing down your dreams to the practical to recognizing dreamsigns incongruities within the dream that cue you in to the fact that you re dreaming as well as some ideasAS A DREAM IT REALLY GAVE

Noted dream researcher Stephen LaBerge invites the reader to experience the world of lucid dreaming Lucid dreaming means dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming Everyone has in theory the capacity to .
Into your waking experienceIn that context I found the idea of control in dreams very interesting Specifically what it implies vs when you
not have that control and it means to face those negative emotions of fear or what ever Very interesting I also like that he acknowledges that it s hard once you become lucid in your dream to maintain the dream Many other books do not do that I m not sure that it happens for me like he describes but it is a real thing Also I don t think I m ite a novice lucid dreamer as I have been doing it since I was a small child I still do find it a bit hard to stay asleep in CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES OF LUCIDITY IF THAT circumstances of lucidity If that your deal I wouldn t be concerned I do however like the message that many will awaken themselves to avoid the negativity in their dream I have def done that but I don t always think facing what is happening is what you want to do either That said I would take no stars off for that bc it s def something to consider depending on the dream I mean if you know it s a stress dream and what the dream is on about you don t to address it in the dream state you can likely just take care of it in the awake state Anyway a good book on the topic Worth throwing in the mix Read as research for a story I m working on I have never had a lucid dream I have never had a dream where I have flown In all honesty I have never had a dream that pushed the limits of reality a dream where fantastical things can happen Most of my dreams are so reality based that it s almost nice to awaken from them I just want to have one dream where I can fly A short 80 page helpful practical guide on lucid dreaming with a heavy focus on sometimes controversial eastern spiritualityThe first chapter with several reports of the exhilarating experience of being in a lucid dream starts the book as a great teaser It instantly lifted my mood and made me hopeful about the potential for new experiences and adventureVery ickly afterwards one is introduced to techniues to increase the likelihood of lucid dreaming among which is developing better dream recall making a habit of asking yourself whether you dream and "PERSEVERANTLY SETTING THE INTENTION TO DREAM "setting the intention to dream and remember These are very precise and technical as a great practical guide to learning to dream lucidlyMore and then the book drifts to a promotion of often controversial eastern spiritual ideas like recognizing yourself embracing your shadow personality and awakening in life Many of these are interesting some are often given less credit than they deserve awareness blindness to one s own personal weaknessesSome of these ideas and musings however are borderline mystical and naive especially for an otherwise scientifically written book When the estion of the ltimate nature of reality is asked or a 10 line story is suppposed to contain in its interpretations all knowledge the skeptical alarm bell should go off I wonder if with a basic background in philosophy and some philosophical analysis the author would pertain to many of these ideasThis does not keep the book from giving excellent advice on ludic dreaming with good scientific insight If you like me would rather be spared much of the mystical spiritual musings the older and expansive Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming might be a better fit which was recommended to me But at least this one is short at 80 pages and the first few chapters on lucid dreaming techniues are very concise scientific and helpfulIn any case i ve dreamed lucidly before reading this book but i m ever excited to repeat that and experiment with it. Freedom hard to imagine in our highly constrained waking reality is astonishing exhilarating and inspiring The laws of physics and society are repealed The limits are only those of the dreamer's imagination. ,DO NOT HAVE THAT CONTROL AND
