The following review of DreamCatcher Project is written by the developer, Jesse Frye.
Keeping a dream journal is an important step in learning how to lucid dream.
Lucid dreamers need to be able to remember their dreams often in order to consciously interact with them. When waking up from a dream there is a short period of time before our waking mind takes over, so most of us have a short window to log our dreams before the details are lost forever.
With traditional dream journal methods you might grab your glasses, turn on a lamp, open your journal and start hand writing your dreams. This method is perfectly valid and has worked for years but I'd like to introduce you to a simpler method that might help you increase your dream recall and expand your dream journal.
The DreamCatcher Project is an iOS app whose goal is to simplify the way you record your dreams. The app lets you set an alarm that will wake you with a pleasant sound and a notification reminding you to record your dream.
When you open the app you can click the microphone icon and simply speak your dream into your phone and the app will transcribe it to text, then you can fall back asleep and attempt a lucid dream or start your day.
Being able to use your phone with your voice instead of a pen and paper should help you remember more of your dream. Having a notification that wakes you up and immediately reminds you to log your dream should also help you log more dreams.
Altogether we think this makes for a pretty helpful dreaming app and suggest you give it a try and let us know what your experiences are.
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.

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.
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?
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...
