This book effectivley taught me how to control my dreams and act out any scenario I like. Its the natural form of virtual reality and its only limited to your imagination. Feb 11, Mia Parentheses Enthusiast marked it as to-read. Feb 06, Ryan rated it it was amazing.
If you are self-disciplined enough to follow the very specific steps to lucid dreaming in LaBerge's book, you will experience the transcendent and life-changing states of lucidity. It's worth the effort. The research on the subjective is extensive, and Eastern spiritual traditions are presented alongside the very Western scientific approach. For someone obsessed with dreams and the dream state, this is a must-read. Jul 25, D rated it it was ok. This book has a step-by-step method for learning how to have and use lucid dreams.
One component is targeting dreamsign categories. These include: You can practice looking for dreamsigns while you are awake, too, by making a habit of examining your day for events that fit under your dreamsign category. For example, if your target category is action, study how you, other people, animals, objects and machines act and move. Once you are familiar with how t This book has a step-by-step method for learning how to have and use lucid dreams.
Once you are familiar with how things usually are in waking life, you're prepared to notice when something unusual happens in a dream.
The Afghan Sufi master Hakim Sansi observed years ago: If you want the mirror to reflect the face, hold it straight and keep it polished bright.
To the extent that your thinking is distorted by fear, greed, anger, pride, prejudice, or faulty assumptions, you cannot tell what is really reflected in your consciousness.

Therefore, assume the best. When you meet a monster in your lucid dream, sincerely greet them like a long-lost friend, and that is what it will be. This seems to be a recurring theme: The less we identify with who we think we are, the more likely we are to discover who we really are. Idries Shah describes our situation in the following story: The Men and the Butterfly Once upon a time on a hot summer's day, two tired men who were on a very long journey came to a riverside where they stopped to rest.
Moments later, the younger man had fallen asleep and -- as the other watched -- his mouth fell open. Can you believe it when I tell you that a little creature, to all appearances a beautiful miniature butterfly, then flew out from between his lips? The insect swooped onto a small island in the river, where it alighted upon a flower and sucked nectar from its cup. Then it flew around the tiny domain which must have seemed huge to an insect of that size a number of times, as though enjoying the sunshine and the soft breeze.
Soon it found another of its own kind and the two danced in the air, as if flirting with one another. The first butterfly settled again on a gently swaying twig: Several minutes passed.
Idly, the wakeful traveler threw a small stone into the water near the little island; and the waves which this created splashed the butterfly.
At first it was almost knocked over, but then, with difficulty, it shook the droplets from its wings and rose into the air. It flew, with wings beating at top speed, back towards the sleeper's mouth. But the other man now picked up a large leaf, and held it in front of his companion's face, to see what the little creature would do.
The butterfly dashed itself against this obstruction again and again, as if in panic: The butterfly's tormentor dropped the leaf, and the creature darted, quick as a flash, into the open mouth. No sooner was it inside than the sleeper shuddered and sat up, wide awake.
He told his friend: I dreamt that I was living in a pleasant and secure castle, but became restless and decided to explore the outside world. I drank deep, from a cup of ambrosia as much as I wanted. I met and danced with a woman of matchless beauty, and I disported myself in endless summer. I played and feasted with many good companions, people of all kinds and conditions, natures, ages and complexions. There were some sorrows but these only served to emphasize the pleasures of this existence.
Suddenly and without warning, there was a catastrophe: I was drenched and I very nearly drowned. I found myself hurtling back towards my castle, as if on wings; but when I reached the entrance gate I could not get in.
A huge green door had been put up by a giant evil spirit. I threw myself against it again and again, but it did not yield. No sooner had I spoken it than the great green portal fell away, like a leaf in the wind, and I was able to enter my home again and to live thenceforth in safety.
But I was so frightened I woke up. Now it is said that you, as you may have guessed, are the butterfly. The island is this world.
The things which you like -- and dislike -- are therefore seldom what you think they are. Even when your time arrives to go or when you think about it you only find distortions of the facts, which is why this question cannot ordinarily be understood.
But beyond "the butterfly" is "the sleeping man. Given the right opportunity, "the butterfly" can learn about these things. About where it comes form, about the nature of the "sleeping man.
There is more to life than people are ordinarily aware of. This is an inspiration to seek a guide who knows the way. Mar 25, Christopher rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent beginner's guide for the curious.
I read this in the 's when I was fresh out of high school and enjoying exploration of the world of dreaming. I also have a fond recollection of the book as it represents a time in my life when I slept long and deeply and had time to journal about such things as one's dreams.

How to potentially resolve problems in your dreams In terms of 'why to's of this book I think Laberge makes some interesting arguments about the benefit of lucid dreaming and I think it's definitely worth trying. I mean otherwise you're just wasting all of that time sleeping, right? Even if the only thing you get out of this book are ways to relax or recall your dreams I think this is worth reading and definitely a topic you don't come across every day.

Since its a good guide for starters, it has reviews and notes to remember the info. I knew most of it already so the reviews seemed redundant. Taking up space with already stated information. Still it's a great book with a good Excellent guide for beginners to Lucid Dreaming. Still it's a great book with a good overview of what LDing is about.
Apr 21, Ethan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Anyone interested in or even vaguely curious about Lucid Dreaming should begin with this book. Stephen LaBerge is one of the world's leading authorities on Lucid Dreaming and draws upon decades of research conducted at the sleep laboratory at Stanford to lay the groundwork for anyone who would like to learn how to consistently have lucid dreams.
The book is very thorough and comes in at over pages, but the potential benefits are well worth the time. Dec 31, Gabriel J.
Clark rated it it was amazing. This is apparently one of the first western books widely available to the public which provides detailed instructions on how to lucid dream.
It was published in , nearly 30 years ago. This is quite old in the world of scientific research, but this book is still very relevant. Feb 25, Dean Tsang rated it it was amazing Shelves: Stephen LaBerge introduces and explains lucid dreaming nicely, taking a simplistic approach in explaining the techniques and benefits of conscious sleep.
This book explained everything I could have asked for, and have no qualms with it. I definitely recommend this for anyone who has thought of taking up lucid dreaming.

Oct 01, Eva rated it really liked it Shelves: A lot of the practical tips in this book can be found online, but for more background information on lucid dreaming research or the way people apply lucid dreaming, this seems to be the best book out there.
Nov 17, Ryan rated it really liked it. Good introduction to lucid dreaming, the bible for lucid dreaming. Aug 01, Ben Nesvig rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fascinating topic and book. It took me a year to get half way through another book on the topic. I read this in a week.
While I haven't had a lucid dream yet, dream recall has picked up. Aug 26, SundayAtDusk rated it really liked it Shelves: I was quite surprised Stephen LaBerge's book was so readable. Since he is strictly a scientific sort of guy, I feared the book was going to be slow and dry. Fortunately, it was just the opposite.
There are lots of first-person accounts, and the book never bogs down anywhere. LaBerge thinks there are no such things; you don't travel out-of-body at nights, and you can't "raise the dead". No, you are supposedly just talkin I was quite surprised Stephen LaBerge's book was so readable. No, you are supposedly just talking to yourself, if you encounter a departed friend or relative in a dream. He doesn't come across real authoritarian on those matters, however; he just says those who believe in OBE's and ADC's are "naive".
I think it's the author who is "naive" about those things, but who really knows? In addition, I've never understood the logic or the attraction of the idea that everyone in a dream is actually you , or some aspect of you. If you saw the waking world like that, you would be considered either extremely self-centered or downright mentally ill.
Likewise, if you just spent all your waking time talking to yourself. Yet, supposedly, according to experts like Dr. LaBerge, you are suppose to see all your dreams in an exclusively self-centered way. Nevertheless, regardless if you agree or disagree with the author, this book should be a great read for anyone wanting a dream book to enhance their dreaming. Even if lucid dreaming is not your target, I'd still highly recommend it. Sep 28, Liz rated it really liked it.
This book could be shorter too many personal examples , but the techniques are presented clearly, and they work. The author spends a fair bit of time discussing psychology, brain imaging studies, and meditation traditions particularly the dream yoga of Tibetan Buddhism.

I have slacked off on practicing, but when I was following the methods described dream journaling, techniques for "state checking" practicing asking yourself throughout the day if you're awake or asleep, and figuring out what signs indicate one or the other , and inducing lucidity , I had a couple of lucid dreams. For example, in one I was talking with someone I never see in real life, so I realized it was a dream and decided to take off and fly over the cityscape of the dream.
This is an accessible book to start with if you are interested in lucid dreaming, i. Oct 30, Ana rated it it was amazing. I'm not typically a big fan of nonfiction books, so I was understandably very apprehensive before I began reading.
I didn't expect to enjoy it, but this book proved me wrong. I've always been fascinated by the science of dreaming, and a few years ago, I learned about Stephen LaBerge. Many people look at dreaming as a religious or spiritual experience that is inexplainable. Seeing it from a purely scientific perspective was very refreshing, and taught me many new things about the topic. I started reading it on Dec. It took 26 days of using the book workbook-style, going through a chapter or so a night, and following the instructions.
Started a dream journal the first night. At the beginning I never remembered my dreams at all. And just 26 days later I had my first LD. During the following month, continuing to finish the book during this time, I had 30 total Lucid Dreams, sometimes in a single night. I haven't focused on my dreaming for quite a while, but there have been a few times during the years when I wanted a refresher, and I always go back to THIS book.
I have actually read the updated versions from LaBerge, and they are simply not as good and concise and as easy to follow as the original. I started reading the book in mid January and had my first Lucid Dream after 2 weeks. For other novices like me, I highly recommend this book! The first few chapters give a detailed step by step, how to proceed in order to learn how to have lucid dreams.
For those who are interested, but have not yet started, I should state that this is not something you can simply read the book and start having lucid dreams. It takes a lot of work, and you have to consistently do the exercises and not get discouraged if you don't succeed right away.
I was initially disappointed that I did not have a lucid dream after a week of working on it. But, I continued to do the exercises and finally, after 2 weeks I succeeded in becoming aware that I was dreaming!
Very exciting! Without the book, I would have had no idea of what to do or how to proceed. I can't promise that it will work for everyone, but it did work for me. I've had lucid dreams occasionally ever since I was five. Read his first book soon after it came out. Interesting and inspiring at the time, but this book has the benefit of years of research. Whenever I had a lucid dream, all I could think of to do was fly.
Sometimes a wonderful experience, but lately I was even having trouble with no-effort flying. Happily, I ran across Waggoner's book, which readily explained my struggle bringing physical concepts into the dream and made me aware of some exciting pursuits other than the usual flying. Inspired, I moved on to this book to keep my focus. It isn't as fun and easy to read, but it's packed full of worthwhile information, especially tips for having more lucid dreaming experiences, even at will.
Slower reading, I got a bit bogged down with some of the exercises and suggestions, and am only a third through the book, savoring it. So much there, best to try only what especially appeals to you.
Opens worlds. I read this years ago after having lucid dreams naturally.
I didn't know that the dreams could be induced. Until I had read this book, I thought that such phenomena were random. This book worked so well for me that I have been buying it over and over again for friends. It's not a new age book. Lucid Dreaming is actually a distinct phase of dreaming which has been verified. Read the works of Allen Hobson and you will get to know a bit more about what happens when you sleep.
Even though I continually read more books on the subject, this first book worked so well that I choose this one when buying as a gift. This book has a strong grasp of the subconscious. It tells many misconceptions about dreams. Shows that although dreams can have deep meaning and lead to enhanced understanding, they don't always have to. Some dreams are a means of maintaining your mental architecture. Some dreams are fantasies.
Some do have deep meaning. Some are how the mind heals itself. It explains many mental triggers. Shows how imagery affects perception. How to deliberately build dreams and how those affect the waking state. This book can help readers gain a stronger connection to their dreams, and learn to treasure their dreams.
While I was reading this book my dreams began to become longer, more vivid, and more frequent.
I would write them down upon waking up, but eventually my dreams became so detailed and lengthy that I would spend up to an hour journaling them. While I enjoyed dreaming every night, I stopped recording them as much because it honestly became too time consuming! Now I only write down a dream if it feels particularly significant.
It takes some persistence to maintain. I used techniques in the book that really did help me transition a normal dream into a lucid dream. I plan on re-reading again soon: See all reviews.
