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.

On the surface, this seems like an odd question to ask. Everybody feels like they have their own free will - whether it's a big decision like choosing their life partner, or a minor call like whether to keep reading this article. But when you break down the neurological process of conscious decision making, there is a distinct lack of evidence for free will. Scientific theories on cause and effect - and philosophical theories about the self - frequently rule out any need for a conscious decision maker at all.
If you saw the Christmas edition of Charlie Brooker's awesome Black Mirror [spoiler alert] you would have watched Jon Hamm mentally and emotionally torture an innocent woman living inside an egg. Ok, back up a bit. She wasn't really a woman. She just thought she was. One week earlier, Hamm's technical team implanted a 'cookie' into a real woman's eyeball. The cookie was an artifically intelligent computer chip. And over the next seven days it learned the personal preferences, thoughts and emotions of its female host. It even took on her life's memories.
Dream herbs are used to induce lucid dreaming, which, most accurately is described as an awareness that you are dreaming to the point that you can control dreams. But, on a more basic level, dream herbs also seem to be linked to increased dream recall or simply an awareness that you are dreaming even if you cannot control the dream. Today I'm going to summarize the best dream herbs for lucidity - as well as where to buy the seeds, how to grow and cultivate them, and what effects that have on your dreams.
My dream life is pretty intense. It always has been. And over the years I've categorized my dreams into five broad types. Here's how to identify the nature of your dreams and how you can turn any of them into lucid dreams. Studies reveal that the average person daydreams for a whopping 70-120 minutes of their waking day. Daydreaming is an important part of dream research. As with all types of dreams, you enter a kind of hypnotic trance and allow your unconscious thoughts to rise to the surface.
I'm half-asleep in bed, aware of fleeting dream images behind my closed eyelids. I start saying "I'm dreaming" in my head and shape the hypnagogia into a view across a lake. I place every detail in my mind's eye: the stillness of the water, the distant trees on the horizon, the twilight of the sky. I imagine my whole body in this space and it soon "pops" into existence and becomes a lucid dream. I cement my lucidity and breathe in the night air. It is beautiful. I must be somewhere in Scandinavia and this gives me the idea to summon the auroras.
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?
