10 Steps to Lucid Dreams is a free Android app which offers detailed tutorials for beginner lucid dreamers. Based on my 17 years of lucid dreaming, it teaches the fundamental skills required for increasing your dream recall and dream intensity, and producing vivid, conscious awareness in your dreams. With training, everyone, in theory, can learn to control their dreams this way.
This simple and user-friendly app is designed for beginners as an entry point to the marvelous land of conscious dreaming, breaking it down in the most straightforward way possible. Here we use 10 illustrated tutorials which create a clear path to launch your lucidity training.
The 10 steps are, in various forms, available in scientific literature and on the internet for anyone to learn how to lucid dream.
However, this information can be dense and complex (or otherwise over-simplified to the point of losing all meaning) and until now, lucid dreaming has been seen as a niche pursuit; something to which only Eastern yogis or highly dedicated individuals can aspire.
I'm here to deliver the clear light of lucidity: to breakdown the seemingly complicated techniques of visualization, meditation, memory cues, and falling asleep consciously, and show you how lucidity can be attained by any one, given the right lucid mindset.
Here are the 10 steps that will launch your lucidity quest:
In each step, I explain exactly what to do to develop your ability to have lucid dreams. Sometimes this means dedicating 10 minutes of practice before bed or when you wake up in the morning, and sometimes there are special tips on going back to sleep lucidly if you wake up in the night.
I'm not pretending this is a magic pill for lucid dreaming - we all know that developing a new skill as meaningful as this will take some commitment - but it may well be the best quick-start guide to learning dream control available today.
This Android app is suitable for all ages and the most basic level of experience - even if you don't currently remember any dreams. These intensive practices are based on my own extensive research and experience in the realm of lucidity, which is why I believe it could change the dream lives of hundreds of thoughts of dreamers around the world. See you on the other side.

For centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have been working on waking up in their dreams, so that they can "wake up" at the moment of their death. They also believe that whatever cultural assumptions you have during life will become true upon death. Can lucid dreaming prepare us for the dying process? What might happen at the actual moment of death? Why are we scared of death and how might bodiless lucid experiences help to reduce our fear? In this interview, Dr Clare Johnson and Dr Keith Hearne dive into the lucid void, Tibetan Buddhism, and lucid dreaming as an emotional and spiritual preparation for death.
Does this face look familiar? It should. This is the result of image averaging - a technique in which multiple headshots are averaged out into a single face. In this case, our composite guy was generated by psychology student and photography enthusiast, Bill Lytton. Lytton averaged out 32 attractive male celebrity faces. To avoid personal bias, he referred to Maxim's Hot 100 and other opinion polls. He also averaged out a bunch of unattractive male faces for comparison.
It's a myth that you could exhaust yourself having a great big run in a lucid dream. After all, your real muscles are paralyzed during sleep. Your body isn't really running or burning up energy. So why would you feel depleted? So, in terms of physical energy depletion, there's really no logic to this argument. But what about dreams being mentally or emotionally tiring? The best way to test this is to survey lucid dreamers themselves. Go ahead, take our poll. My intuitive response is no - and that's based on my 17 years of personal experience. Lucid dreams aren't tiring for me at all.
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
