Wake up and dream.
Imagine experiencing all the things that happen in dreams, but with one extraordinary difference: You are “lucid”––consciously, joyously in control. Not just an adventure (yes, you can fly), a lucid dream is a time ripe for creative thinking, healing, inspiration, and self-knowledge.
This lively dream guide shows step-by-step how to become lucid, and then what to do once awake in the dream world. Here’s how to reconnect with dreams, and the importance of keeping a journal and timing REM cycles. How to use simple reality checks to differentiate between waking and sleeping states. How to incubate a dream to solve a problem.
With every dream we are washing up on the shores of our own inner landscape. Now, learn to explore this strange and thrilling world.
