Have you ever been dreaming and then suddenly become
conscious that you were in fact dreaming? Well this is
what is considered lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is
AWARE that they ARE in the middle of a dream.
Imagine you’re having a lucid
dream. This means you’re lying in bed having
a dream, and while still within the dream world, you
become conscious and aware that you’re dreaming. Sometimes it can be as simple as taking control of
a situation within the dream and making it play out
the way we want. Other times the entire dream world
can completely transform around us and mold itself
into whatever we imagine. This is called lucid dreaming
and it is something that everyone experiences in varying
degrees from time to time
“ But why are people
interested in learning to be conscious in their
dreams? According to my
own experience, and the testimony of thousands
of other lucid dreamers, lucid dreams can be
extraordinarily vivid, intense, pleasurable,
People frequently consider their lucid dreams
as among the most wonderful experiences of their
If this were all there were to it, lucid
dreams would be delightful, but ultimately
trivial entertainment. However, as many have
already discovered, you can use lucid dreaming
to improve the quality of your waking life.
Thousands of people have written to me at Stanford
telling how they are using the knowledge and
experience they have acquired in lucid dreams
to help them get more out of living.”

Solve life challenges Problem solving is definitely possible in conscious dreaming.
In a lucid dream, you can get rid of traumas, phobia,
anxieties, and a number of other disorders; you can
develop new skills, travel to fascinating places, and
so forth. Needless to say, conscious dreaming is the
best way to ensure that the subconscious part of your
mind works for you.
Lucid dreaming is something that occurs naturally while
we are dreaming, that,causes us to become completely
self aware and in control of things within the dream
world. It usually happens at random and only appears
to lasts for a very brief period of time. It is usually
quite an enjoyable experience for most people and they
find that they can do extraordinary things like fly and
move objects with their mind.
Even while you’re lucid, you probably can’t control everything,
nor would you necessarily want to, but the knowledge that you’re
dreaming gives you a fascinating new perspective on your in-dream experience.
You can interact with the dream reality on a whole new level.
Shamanic lucid dreaming is
well known in South America, as well. Chilean
anthropologist Rosa Anwandter suggests that there
are over 20 dream-honoring societies in the Amazon
basin and another half-dozen in Peru. One clear
example is the Guarani peoples, who meet regularly
in circle to share their dreams. The Guaranis
of Paraguay also recognize lucid dreaming, and
are said to move their villages based on dream
warnings of future floods

societies in South America. Presentation for
the annual conference of the International
Association of the Study of Dreams. July 12,

To most people lucid dreams may seem like
a rare commodity, but what few people realize is that
lucid dreaming can be done at will. Not only can we lucid
dream at will, but with practice we can schedule specific
lucid dreams upon going to bed. The main difference is
that you become virtually fearless, since you know that
nothing in the dream world can hurt the real you — the
dreamer who’s having the dream
Along with peacefulness and joy, lucid dreams
can provide mystical and transcendental experiences
to their dreamers. In this example a subject
recounts a profoundly spiritual lucid dream:
" Lucidity faintly pervaded the initial
stage of the dream, was lost, but then returned
with brief but devastating clarity… I
wandered off the road into an open space where
multitudes of people were assembled. Then,
somehow, sense of time and self were lost… and
I couldn’t bear to leave that bliss…but
inexorably I was waking up (Green 51)."
This exhilaration is characteristic
of most lucid dreams, and can be therapeutic
to the dreamer. The next example illustrates
a subject releasing stress in a dream; annoyed
by a person she was having dinner with:
" I realized with the
utmost clarity that I was dreaming and could
do exactly what I wanted…The scene changed
and I found myself in another room, walking
toward this woman… and we hugged each
other (Green 134)."
Research has shown that people can actually
practice things like musical instruments while they are
in the lucid state and their performance will actually
improve. The same thing has been shown for people who "study" for
tests while lucid dreaming.
By practicing lucid dreaming on a regular basis, you
can actually lengthen the amount of time that you spend
in the lucid dream state. It is similar to exercising
a muscle. Your ability to lucid dream strengthens over
time with practice.
"Your body is asleep but in your
brain your mind is bright and awake and awareness
is now in your brains own created dream world."
is NOT just a load of “New Age hippy crap.” Neither
is it the work of Satan.
Do you realize we spend 30% of our lives
sleeping and dreaming? Now we can put that time to good
use. While awake our lives are pretty much the sum total
of our habits and programming. This programming happens
to us all the time via TV, Radio, Newspapers and especially
from those close to us - friends and family. Even though
they are well meaning some of their fears and limitations
have been programmed into us which cause limit and lack
in our lives.
"Once you reach this level of lucidity, everything
changes. You’re still experiencing reality — it
doesn’t simply stop – but because you
recognize it as a dream, you’re able to interact
with it on a whole new level. You will still experience
pleasure, pain, and fear as you react automatically
to in-dream events, but because you know you’re
really the outside dreamer who cannot be truly harmed
by anything within the dream, you begin to relate
to life from a state of inherent fearlessness. " Steve
If you want more in your life you need
to become more by changing the way you look at things,
attitudes that in the past have held you back. Now, as
most of us know it's hard to have the determination and
willpower to change our habits even though we really
want to. The reason it is so hard is because there is
a momentum or inertia in the way you have been doing
things. In order to change that it will take an extraordinary
amount of focusing in the desired direction to cause
a change. Most of us are tapped out at the end of the
day and don't have the personal power it takes to cause
permanent and lasting change.

Lucid Dreaming was
perfected thousands of years ago by our ancestors,
and are still practiced today in dozens of indigenous
cultures around the world. Lucid dreaming is actually
a shamanic skill, a method of heightened awareness
in the dream that allows healers, medicine men and
soothsayers access to information, insight and energetic
powers. Now there are amazing Systems to help you reach
these incredibly spiritual mind states,
Lucid dreaming is quite simply the ability
to achieve lucid awareness while dreaming. Numerous scientific
studies have shown that lucid dreaming confers significant
mental and physical benefits to the practitioner. Here
are some the ways in which conscious dreaming has been
shown to improve people’s lives:'
Lucid dreaming is usually
quite an enjoyable experience for most people
and they find that they can do extraordinary
things like fly and move objects with their mind.
problem-solving skills: Lucid dreaming helps you process much
of the subconscious “babbling” in your mind
that distracts you and prevents you from being able to
concentrate on a task at hand. When you quiet these voices
your ability to think critically and solve problems increases
Scientists understand the benefits of lucid dreaming; some have used
it to enhance their problem solving skills in extraordinarily creative
ways.Take Friedrich Kekule's discovery of the structure of the benzene
molecule; Otto Loewi's experiment on nerve impulses; and Elias Howe's
invention of the sewing machine. These dream-inspired inventions highlight
the stunning power of the dreaming subconscious mind.
Once you learn the basics of lucid dreaming,
you can solve problems on demand - and on a whole new
level. That's because you are not limited by your logical
conscious brain. Instead, you can solve problems creatively
in a 3D environment, or by drawing deeper insights directly
from your subconscious mind. Just ask any question to
your lucid dream and wait for the answer..
energy levels: This one follows naturally
upon the last… If you are sleeping better at
night then you will be better rested during the day.
Not to mention that when you’ve spent the whole
night fighting off supervillains you will wake up
feeling supercharged and ready to take on anything
the waking world will throw at you!
One dreamer, after having a lucid dream
said that she was left with “ 'a feeling of bubbling
joy' that persisted for a week or more” (LaBerge
Fears The benefits of lucid dreaming
are far-reaching? Conscious dreaming allows you to
face your fears in a controlled setting. If you are
afraid of heights, why not jump out of an airplane?
In the alternate reality of lucid dreams, you can
slow down time for a controlled fall, and float gently
to the ground. Once you have done this at 10,000
feet you will be surprised how you feel about heights
in the waking world.
self-control: Do you suffer from
addiction issues? Looking to lose weight, perhaps,Losing
weight is something that almost everybody would like
to do at some point in their life, both for health
reasons and for self image.or quit bad habits and
pursue a healthier lifestyle? When you control your
dreams, you can enter into a self-hypnotic state
in which you can retrain your own mind to adopt healthier
self-confidence: When you control
your dreams, you can face your fears head on and
learn how to overcome them. These triumphs will carry
over to your waking life and will empower you with
a new sense of self-confidence.
Do you lack confidence
in the waking world? If so, you can use conscious
dreaming to release your inhibitions and be totally
free in a realistic dream world. If you want to improve
your public speaking abilities, you can rehearse the
event in a lucid dream. Having practiced your speech
in a realistic environment, you will find you have
more confidence when it comes to making the speech
in real life. Remember - practice makes perfect.
self-awareness: What are the deep-rooted
anxieties that fill you with unease? You can confront
them in the safe environment of a lucid dream and
understand what you need to do in your waking life
to resolve this issues and attain a higher level
The benefits of lucid dreaming are far-reaching.
You can take on a new life in lucid dreams, free of all
your fears and inhibitions, confident that you can do
absolutely anything. This has a real positive impact
on your waking life.
are a playground for experimentation. You
can try out any concept imaginable - from business,
to sports, to relationships - anything you like.
By rehearsing a situation or simply toying with different
outcomes, you can improve your confidence in any
number of waking scenarios.
You can practice new skills
in lucid dreams. In Exploring The World of Lucid
Dreaming by Dr Stephen LaBerge, there is a testimony
from a surgeon. Before going to sleep, he would
review his surgical cases for the next day. Then
he would practice them in precise detail in lucid
dreams. He has a solid reputation as a surgeon
because of this, being able to refine and polish
his techniques and perform procedures much faster
than the average surgeon.
memory: Do you ever wonder
where all your forgotten memories go? They’re still
in your brain — they’re just so deeply buried
your surface mind can no longer access them. But when
you lucid dream, you can relive those memories and greatly
expand your powers of recall.
more restful sleep: Sleep
issues are often the result of residual stress and anxiety.
But when you learn how to lucid dream, you can resolve
the issues that are causing that stress and anxiety.
Not only that — when you spend your nights having
incredible experiences such as flying, exercising supernatural
powers, shape-shifting into whatever animal you want — you
will be excited to go to sleep each night because you
will be so excited to embark on your next nocturnal adventure.
Fears and nightmares can devastate people to the point
that sleep becomes a painful association. With lucid
dreaming, you can face these fears and nightmares knowing
that you are safe and cannot be injured. Imagine also
being able to change elements of your dream in order
to help you defeat those nightmares.
recognize the value of dreams for
revealing information from the subconscious mind
and venting blockages and frustrations as therapeutic
change occurs. They know the power of an active imagination
in hypnosis and the waking state. Think how much
more powerful that active imagination can be in dreaming.
Dream content is as vivid and rich as perception
during the waking state-in fact, even more so. The
dream world is multi-dimensional, multi- textural,
and so "real" that studies have shown physiological

How does it work? One
explanation is that dealing with a worst case scenario
in a positive way creates new neural patterns in your
subconscious mind. Reinforcing that belief with more
experiences that seem real can dissolve the fear altogether.

Solve life challenges Problem solving is definitely possible
in conscious dreaming. In a lucid dream, you can get
rid of traumas, phobia, anxieties, and a number of other
disorders; you can develop new skills, travel to fascinating
places, and so forth. Needless to say, conscious dreaming
is the best way to ensure that the subconscious part
of your mind works for you.
But that's not all...
Transcendence: Lucid dreaming demonstrates the fact
that the world we see is a construct of our minds. It
forces us to look beyond everyday experience and ask
the question, "If this is not real, then what is

yet you are in a completely safe and controllable environment. It's
against this background that you can face your fears, enhance your

That's not to mention the enormous fun that comes from
playing within your own virtual reality dream world and
how it relates to your own subconscious mind. Soon you
will see it is all interconnected - conscious and unconscious
- enabling you to use this playground for profound personal
growth and insights.
Lucid dreaming is a skill that anyone can develop with
motivation and effort. The enjoyment and benefits are
well worth it. What could you do with the third of your
life that is spent sleeping? How could you use it to
benefit the other two-thirds? Through lucidity the line
between the dream world and the waking world begins to
blur, providing unique opportunities to interact consciously
with your subconscious mind.
Some years ago two devices, the DreamLight and the NovaDreamer
were created and marketed in the USA. Both used advanced
technology to help their users achieve lucid dreams.
These devices sold for anywhere from US $400-$1000. At
the present time, manufacture of both devices has been
But now a similar (and in some ways superior) device
has been produced in Europe. This new device, the REM-Dreamer,
features new technology not available in the NovaDreamer
to help you recognize and stabilize lucidity in your
dreams. REM-Dreamer also contains LCD display, which
was not available in the NovaDreamer. Thanks to LCD display
working with the REM-Dreamer is very easy, much easier
than with the NovaDreamer.
The REM-Dreamer consists of circuit board tucked
inside the mask and LCD display connectable to the
board. There are two lines in the LCD. Upper line
shows menu entry (for instance: 1. Delay time), lower
line shows value of parameter of the menu entry (for
instance: 00:10:00 of the delay time).
There are 13 menu entries on LCD display:
1. Delay time.
3. Flash brightness.
4. Sound volume.
5. Cue length.
6. Cue frequency.
7. Length of series of cues.
10. REM detector test.
11. Generated series of cues.
12. REM detector sensitivity.
13. Turn off the REM-Dreamer
The REM-Dreamer uses infrared sensors to detect when
you are in REM (dreaming) sleep. At that point the REM-Dreamer
gives you sound and light cues (beeps and flashing lights)
to remind you that you are dreaming. Thus, external world
stimuli are transferred to the world of your dreams,
and it becomes easy to achieve lucidity.
In their work in dream laboratories researchers discovered
that external world stimuli reach the dreaming mind but
are "reinterpreted" within dreams in order
to enable the dreamer to remain asleep. In this way the
dreamer is protected from frequent awakenings.
For example, if a dreamer's face is sprinkled with water when he or she
enters REM sleep, the dreamer might report rain in their dream. Or, if
a dreamer is exposed to perfume, the dream might include a dancing partner
and a ball.
The REM-Dreamer uses this technique of reinterpretation
by providing the dreamer's mind with preset visual and/or
audio cues (flashes and beeps) which help the dreamer
understand that they are dreaming. For instance, when
the REM-Dreamer displays a flashing light the dreamer
may dream of sunlight reflecting in a window pane, an
ambulance with its lights flashing, or a camera's flash.
The dreamer learns to recognize these signs in dreams,
and these signs become the dreamer's gateway to lucidity.
The great Taoist master Chuang
Tzu once dreamt that he was a butterfly fluttering
here and there.
In the dream he had no awareness of his individuality
as a person. He was only a butterfly. Suddenly,
he awoke and found himself laying there, a person
once again. But then he thought to himself, "Was
I before a man who dreamt about being a butterfly,
or am I now a butterfly who dreams about being
The REM-Dreamer now features a new method
of inducing lucid dreams. Our newest model enables two-way
communication between the sleeping person and the REM-Dreamer.
Researchers have confirmed that, while sleeping and dreaming,
people move their eyes in the same directions that they
do in their dreams. This fact helped inspire the creation
of the TWC (Two-Way-Communication) technology. The
TWC technology enables communication between the REM-Dreamer
and the sleeping person during the dreaming state.
For instance, when the TWC feature is turned on the
REM-Dreamer begins to generate a series of cues of increasing
intensity when it senses that dreaming has begun. When
the level of these cues has increased sufficiently to
reach the dreaming mind the dreamer has the option of
signaling back to the REM-Dreamer by moving his or her
eyes in a predetermined manner (within the dream state)
and, on sensing that movement, the REM-Dreamer will stop
When the TWC feature is turned off the intensity of
the cues is pre-selected by the user and does not change
throughout the night. For some users, this meant that
the intensity of the cues was too weak to reach the mind,
or too strong, resulting in the dreamer being awakened.
When the TWC feature is turned on the intensity of the cues can be adjusted
from the dream. Thus, the chances of lucid dreaming are increased much.
The REM-Dreamer is the first lucid dream induction device
in the world, which uses this technique and technology.
In addition, the newest REM-Dreamer still includes the
simple and easy-to-use settings of inducing lucid dreaming
without TWC. Both methods can be used
The REM-Dreamer can enhance dream recall and shorten
the time needed to learn lucid dreaming. Many people
have used the REM-Dreamer as their primary method to
learn lucid dreaming. As their abilities in lucid dreaming
increase, the TWC technology can be utilized to enhance
and deepen the lucid dream state.
" Starting the FIRST NIGHT! It has been getting
easier each night to choose what I want to dream about"
-Joe G, Colorado
The REM-Dreamer kit comes with a very comfortable sleeping
mask with a small printed circuit board tucked inside
that detects REM sleep, giving cues in the form of flashes
The kit also includes LCD display, device connectable
to the REM-Dreamer board, which allows the user to adjust
all settings very easily. The user can use any of several
simple presets, or can customize the number of sounds
and light flashes, their volume and brilliance, frequency
per second, and duration. In addition, the REM sensor
can be set to accurately track your personal REM eyeball
movement. The device comes with the user's manual (36
The REM-Dreamer has given many people the opportunity
to experience lucid dreaming, and the opportunity to
use this natural state of consciousness to program their
subconscious, influence their behavior, explore the world
of the mind, and work with habits of body and mind, depending
on their own needs and desires.
You might believe that dreams are the random sparks
produced by chemical processes in the brain, or symbolic
worlds in which we continually replay and re-examine
the experiences of our waking life, or gateways to a
multi-dimensional universe our feeble human minds can
barely comprehend. Whatever your thoughts on dreams,
there’s no denying that establishing a stronger
connection to your subconscious mind can result in huge
benefits to your waking life — benefits you would
be crazy to ignore.
anyone do it? Yes, some take longer than others
to achieve lucidity, it can come with the first
dream or it can take more practice. Sometimes when
you've been trying so hard for so long, you give
up and it just happens. I personally think that
some people have the right brains for lucid dreaming,
its a bit like being good at the guitar, everyone
can learn but some do find it easier than others.
And using electronic Lucid Dreaming devices just
males it that much easier
Is it safe? Well you cannot be harmed in your lucid dreams, you are the
dreamer, you and only you are in control.
Once you learn the basics of lucid dreaming, you can
solve problems on demand - and on a whole new level.
That's because you are not limited by your logical conscious

a 3D environment, or by drawing deeper insights directly

When people experience their first lucid
nighttime dream, it’s normally a very exciting
experience. I can describe the feeling as one of exhilaration… like, “Wow!
I’m dreaming. This is absolutely amazing.” Once
you get a grasp on that perspective, it’s such
a wonderful feeling you never want to let it go.
