In most of our dreams, our inner eye of reflection is shut and we sleep within our sleep. The exception takes place when we seem to awake within our dreams, without disturbing or ending the dream state, and learn to recognize that we are dreaming while the dream is still happening.

Stephen LaBerge

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

Lucid dreaming has considerable potential for promoting personal growth and self-development, enhancing self-confidence, improving mental and physical health, facilitating creative problem solving and helping you to progress on the path to self-mastery. Stephen LaBerge

Lucid dreaming is somewhat controversial because it sounds "New Age-y," like reading crystals or undergoing color light therapy -- things not everyone believes in. There's science behind lucid dreaming, though. One study monitored subjects with electroencephalograms (EEGs -- a test of the electrical brain activity) as they slept. The participants motioned with their eyelids when they were in the middle of a lucid dream. The EEGs confirmed that they were in REM sleep while they signaled their lucid dream state [source: LaBerge]. The fact that people can have lucid dreams isn't under dispute. The question is whether or not people can control their dreams. Some scientists claim an enthusiastic yes.

 

Stephen LaBerge (born 1947) is a psychophysiologist and a leader in the scientific study of lucid dreaming. In 1967 he received his Bachelor's Degree in mathematics. He began researching lucid dreaming for his Ph.D. in Psychophysiology at Stanford University, which he received in 1980.[1] He developed techniques to enable himself and other researchers to enter a lucid dream state at will, most notably the MILD technique (mnemonic induction of lucid dreams), which was necessary for many forms of dream experimentation.[2] In 1987, he founded The Lucidity Institute, an organization that promotes research into lucid dreaming,

Lucid dreaming has been mentioned in the study of sleep since the time of Aristotle. The layperson may be surprised to hear this, because few people know about or experience lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming, also known as Lucidity, is defined as consciousness during sleep, in which the dreamer realizes he or she is dreaming. Stanford University sleep researcher Stephen LaBerge coined the term “awake in your dreams” to describe lucidity (LaBerge 2). It is a difficult definition to understand, and can be easier to grasp through quotes of lucid dreamers. Lucid dreams tend to be more vivid and often very peaceful or spiritual compared to regular dreaming. Although few are aware of the existence of lucid dreams, it can open many new doors to scientists and the layperson alike. When a dreamer opens the world of lucid dreaming their life can be dramatically altered. Consciousness during sleep can improve the dreamer's life physically and spiritually.

Lucid dreaming is a state of consciousness where the dreamers are fully aware that they are asleep, and that what they are experiencing is a state of reality completely manufactured by the dreaming mind. At its best, lucid dreaming is a completely conscious state of mind where the doors to the conscious and unconscious minds are fully open to each other -- available for exploration, examination and to be fearlessly embraced.

Around 350 B.C.E Aristotle said, “often, when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which declares that what then presents itself is but a dream” (quoted by LaBerge 19). In this quote Aristotle implies that he or someone he knew regularly had lucid dreams.

People often ask me if, apart from the obvious fun aspects of lucid dreaming whether or not there are more practical benefits.

Pause now to ask yourself the following question: "Am I dreaming or awake, right now?" Be serious, really try to answer the question to the best of your ability and be ready to justify your answer. ~Stephen LaBerge

Learning to lucid dream can have quite an impact on your everyday ‘waking’ life in more ways than one. Apart from the obvious feeling that you have a special skill that ninety percent of the people around you have no idea exists or how to learn it, lucid dreaming has many other practical uses.

Benefits of Lucid Dreaming

“ 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, and exhilarating. People frequently consider their lucid dreams as among the most wonderful experiences of their lives.

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.”

Stephen Laberge, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming,

Some people have found that lucid dreaming is an excellent way to combat re-occurring nightmares. The main problem with people’s nightmares is that they are usually a victim.

The Stigma Surrounding Lucid Dream Therapy In PTSD

Whether they are running away from a monster, being threatened in some way or re-living a traffic accident and seeing themselves or a loved one come to harm, they are always a ‘victim’ in the nightmare with little to no control over how the dream pans out.. There is always a negative element that is oppressing them.

Lucid dreaming can help here because in a lucid dream it’s you that is in control. If you don’t like the nasty monster then wish it away and it will go. If you can become lucid whilst in the middle of a nightmare you can literally take control and end the negative aspect.

“If you are having a dream and you think it’s real, it can get very scary. Say you are dreaming you are tightrope walking across Niagara Falls. If you fall off, you plunge to your death. So you are walking very slowly, very carefully. Then suppose you start lucid dreaming, and you realise it’s all a dream. What do you do? Become more cautious and careful? Noo, you start jumping up and down on the tightrope, you do flips, you bounce around, you have a ball – precisely because you know isn’t real. When you realise it’s a dream you can afford to play.

The same thing happens when you realise that ordinary life is a dream, just a movie, just a play. You don’t become more cautious, more timid, more reserved. You start jumping up and down and doing flips, precisely because it’s all a dream, it’s all pure Emptiness. You don’t feel less, you feel more – because you can afford to. You are no longer afraid of dying, and therefore you are not afraid of living. You become radical and wild, intense and vivid, shocking and silly. You let it all come pouring through, because it’s all your dream.

Life then assumes its true intensity, its vivid luminosity, its radical effervescence.

Ken Wilber, The Essential Ken Wilber: An Introductory Reader., Page: 33

Lucid dreaming is NOT just a load of “New Age hippy crap.” Neither is it the work of Satan.

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: Psychophysiological Studies of Consciousness during REM Sleep

•Improved 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 significantly.
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.

The consciousness of lucid dreaming is a cultural evolution. It's something that we are talking about and learning about, not biological evolution. Stephen LaBerge

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...

•Enhanced creativity: Lucid dreaming allows a person to go directly to their inner source of creativity to stimulate ideas and solve problems. Your subconscious mind is the source of creative inspiration. Many artistic geniuses — Salvador Dali, William Blake, Paul Klee, Mozart, and Beethoven among them — say they came up with their best ideas while asleep. By establishing direct, unfettered access to your subconscious mind and then learning how to manipulate it your capacity for creative thinking will explode.

Conscious dreaming is an exceptionally powerful way to improve your creativity. Salvador Dali, William Blake and Paul Klee created famous artwork inspired by dreams.

What is consciousness? Our brain simulates reality. So, our everyday experiences are a form of dreaming, which is to say, they are mental models, simulations, not the things they appear to be.Stephen LaBerge

Mozart, Beethoven and Wagner - pointed to dreams as the source of their inspiration. In fact, some of the most beautiful music ever heard takes place in lucid dreams. They reveal our most creative side because of the free-flow of ideas arising from the subconscious mind.

To improve your creativity in lucid dreams, you can follow this avenue. First, make an announcement in your dream: "show me something amazing!" Your subconscious will respond in unpredictable but often deeply inspiring ways.

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.

Greater 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.

Lucid dreams 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.

• Greater 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 of peace

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.

• Greater 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 behaviours.

Hypnotherapists 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 response to take place as if the event were actually happening.

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)."

• Fewer nightmares: Nightmares are dreams where YOU are the victim. But when you control your dreams, you are no longer the victim. You can turn Freddy Krueger’s knife gloves into harmless butterflies and chase him away with a baseball bat, should you so choose. And if you have a recurring nightmare that has plagued you for years, you can choose a different ending for it and finally exercise the night-time demons that have been haunting you for so long.

Nightmares and Night Terrors: The Horror Movies of the Mind

Public speaking can be a nightmare for lots of people. Does the thought of giving a speech at a wedding or an after dinner party make your blood run cold? Lucid dreaming is a great way to overcome these obstacles.

• Improved 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.

• Better, 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.

Lucid dreaming lets you make use of the dream state that comes to you every night to have a stimulating reality. Stephen LaBerge

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.

What are the Advantages of Using CES for Lucid Dream Induction?
The majority of users who have tried the CES method have found it to be similar to Galantamine in terms of lucid dream inducing capabilities and at times superior in terms of recovery of full cognitive ability. It does not seem to stimulate the cholinergic system and hence has no tolerance with Galantamine, Huperzine-A, Nicotine etc ... It does not exhibit tolerance with itself from night to night and actually appears to have a reverse tolerance effect if used frequently. Most importantly, it appears to potentiate AcH boosting supplements. Finally, it does not cause insomnia like Galantamine can. The CES method in concert with supplements is about as close as anyone has come to what a lot of people are looking for. Lucid dream induction on demand. It also represents a viable alternative for those who have developed an inter use tolerance to AcH boosting supplements, but who want to continue to experience multiple lucid dreams per week

•Higher 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 10).

Lucid Dream Therapy As A Treatment For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder:

Face Your 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.

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. From skydiving to spyders *(Why not ask that spider what he represents? He may give you an astonishing response that finally allows you to rationalize your fear) you can face your fears and reprogram your subconscious reactions, knowing that absolutely no harm can come to you.

 

Practice a martial art As any martial artist will tell you, repeated practice of a martial art is essential if a high level of competence is to be achieved. Your brain needs to learn the various different forms and movements so that you can react to a given situation instinctively and without thought. What better way to go through your different fighting styles and movements than in a lucid dream? In fact there is nothing to stop you fighting with an opponent to improve your sparring skills.

Break the bonds of reality. We live in a world full of rules. What’s acceptable and proper, what’s allowed or forbidden. Lucid dreaming lets you live in a world run by your rules, so let your imagination run wild.

• Learn how to fly in Dreams.
• Creative problem solving.
• Sexual encounters.
• Psychic powers.
• Traveling into space and exploring the universe.
• Meditate like a Zen momk

Dreams can carry over feelings into the waking world – just as a nightmare can induce stress into your daily life, an inspirational dream can keep you happy and motivated throughout the day. Many people use lucid dreaming techniques to give themselves that needed kick to jumpstart their day.

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 it?"

Dreams look real, but they're in your mind, so you realize that the physical world is also a construction, which shows that the mind can affect reality in more ways than you can imagine. Stephen LaBerge

Conscious dreaming is a fascinating experience. The realism is amazing, yet you are in a completely safe and controllable environment. It's against this background that you can face your fears, enhance your creative problem solving skills, improve your confidence and practice new skills.

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.

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.

From early childhood, I was interested in understanding how the world worked, and assumed I would be some kind of physical scientist or chemist. But the truth was, I didn't know there was another kind of world, the inner world, that was just as interesting, if not more relevant, than what was going on in the outside world. Stephen LaBerge

The REM-Dreamer consists of circuit board tucked inside the mask. The REM-Dreamer board includes LCD display. 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).

REM-Dreamer Pro

REM-Dreamer Pro is a new version of REM-Dreamer which can record and play voice messages. The only cues in the REM-Dreamer are flashing lights and beeps. In addition, REM-Dreamer Pro can also play voice cues with recorded message, for instance: "You are dreaming". This type of cues is much more effective than just flashing lights and beeps. REM-Dreamer Pro plays voice cues after generating flashes and beeps in the REM state.

REM-Dreamer Pro has its own small speaker which is located on the board. REM-Dreamer Pro can also be connected to an external speaker for louder volume of audio, to a set of headphones or to our special flat headphone designed for sleep (which can be placed close to your ear). Thanks to that, you will hear voice message without waking your partner.
