As another year draws to an end, I realize there are still tons of things on my "someday" list. Things that I'm passionate about doing - someday - if only I focused my time and energy on them. But until this happens, the years slip by and those dreams disappear.
For some people, lucid dreaming can easily slip into the someday list.
To help you on your lucid dreaming journey I have poured all my knowledge and experience into an online course called the Lucid Dreaming Fast Track.
The course, which is accessed by logging in online, is designed to teach you everything you need to know to induce lucid dreams and use them, not just for escapism, but to enhance your waking life too.
The idea behind the LDFT is simple. Every day, you log on and read through a new lesson, which takes about 5-10 minutes. You can do this any time of day. Then you put the lessons into practice at night. This way, you take on core lessons in bite-size chunks that together contain the power to bring your dreams into conscious clarity.
The LDFT started its life back in 2009 when I published an ebook called The Art of Lucid Dreaming. People loved it. And as I developed my teaching style through the website I discovered an even better way to convey my lessons. And so in 2011 the Lucid Dreaming Fast Track was born.
I've continued to expand the course every year and all my students - past and present - get full access to everything forever. Most recently I've added new meditation audios, which you can listen to as you fall asleep at night while practicing tried-and-tested lucid dream visualizations.
The LDFT has helped many thousands of people "wake up" in their dreams. Conscious dream exploration is my passion and I still get a rush whenever I become lucid. I wake up in a world where anything is possible. A world which is devastatingly realistic. A world which is completely liberating. I find it euphoric on multiple levels.
I really hope you set your mind to lucid dreaming in 2016 and get to experience the thrill of a waking dreamworld. Grab your copy of my bestselling lucid dreaming course here. Good luck!
A lot has happened in the last 5 months. But how did we go from business as usual to changing the face of the entire lucid dreaming supplements industry? It’s a story that I think will interest you – and you might even learn a thing or two in the process. When I was first taken on-board as Chief Lucidity Officer in 2016, one of the first things I was tasked with was taking a good look at our operations and giving things a bit of an overhaul.
What is reality? How can we define it - fit it into a box - so that whatever experiments we throw at it, our definition always holds true? I consciously observe the lucid dream world. It is real to me because the firing of neurons in my brain stem are interpreted as real sensory data by my brain. I could argue that lucid dreams constitute part of my reality.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
Years ago, before I had my first lucid dream, I had a very specific idea about what a lucid dream would feel like. I thought it would be intense and magical and a little bit spooky. This turned out to be a pretty accurate representation. Becoming aware in the dreamstate is like entering another world. One where physical laws can be manipulated (there is no spoon, Neo) and your fantasies can come true in an instant. There's definitely something magical about that - and it's as if the lucid dream world is a living, breathing organism that can react to your very thoughts.
It is estimated that these wise and wily Indians have been using mugwort in their healing and ritual practices for 13,000 years, where it is known as the ‘dream sage’. They use the herb to promote good dreams, which they consider an essential aspect of normal human functioning! But that’s not 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?
