There is a state of consciousness in which any human being
could experience anything imaginable. Each of us holds within
us infinite possibilities. How many of us ever have the opportunity
to taste even a hint of them? If we speak of our fantasies
of wider vistas of life, we talk of our "dreams." In
our dreams, we are free.
Lucid Dreaming is not a modern discovery. Even though it
has only come to the attention of the general public in the
last few decades, even as early as the fifth century people
were having lucid dreams. In fact, it is in the fifth century
that we have the earliest written evidence of a lucid dream
- in a letter written by St. Augustine in 415 A.D.
" I had my first Lucid Dream my second night!
Now I'm exploring whole new worlds!"
- Tracy, New York
And even as early as the eighth century, the
tibetan buddhists were practising a form of yoga
designed to maintain full waking consciousness while in the
dream state. These ancient dream
yogis possessed an unequivocal understanding of dreams, which
is equal to, if not more advanced, than the knowledge we now possess today.
The dream yogis retreated more and more deeply into themselves
until they started to dream,
and they did so without ever losing conscious awareness.
According to the Tibetan Book of the
Dead, the yogis had almost total control over broad aspects
of these "waking dreams."
A significant figure in lucid dreaming history is the Marquis
d'Hervey de Saint-Denys. He was
one of the greatest nineteenth century pioneers of lucid
dreaming, an industrious and dedicated
experimenter who recorded his dreams from the age of thirteen
In 1867, he first published his book Dreams and how to Guide
Them, in which he documented
more than twenty years of his own research into dreams. In
the book, the Marquis describes the
sequential development of his ability to control his dreams,
first increasing his dream recall,
then becoming aware that he was dreaming. Lastly, he tells
us how he became able to awaken
from his dreams at will. The Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys
was probably the first person to
demonstrate that it is possible for anyone to learn to dream
Next came the man to who we owe the term "lucid dreaming",
a dutch psychiatrist and dream
researcher by the name of Frederik Willems Van Eeden. He
coined the term "lucid dreams" to
those dreams where the dreamer knows that they are dreaming.
Though he was interested in all
aspects of dreaming, he found that these lucid dreams aroused
his keenest interest. At first he
presented his ideas in a fictional book entitled The Bride
of Dreams, because the fictional guise
allowed him to freely deal with delicate matters. Then, in
1913, he presented a paper on lucid
dreams to the Society for Psychical Research reporting on
352 of his lucid dreams collected
between 1898 and 1912 History
of lucid Dreaming
Lucid dreaming is dreaming while being aware that you are
dreaming. Lucid dreaming advocates strive to control and
guide their dreams. Some desire to avoid recurring nightmares.
Others desire fun. Some New Age lucid dreamers, however,
believe that lucid dreaming is essential for self-improvement
and personal growth.
With lucidity comes an astonishing, exhilarating
feeling of freedom -- the knowledge that you can
do anything, unbound by any laws of physics or society.
One of the first joys of many lucid dreamers is flying:
soaring like a bird, freed from the restraints of
gravity. From there, people can go on to discover
the vast power of lucid dreaming for transforming
YOU Can Master These AMAZING Skills...
Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D., claims that lucid dreaming is a
priceless treasure that belongs to each of us. This treasure,
the ability to dream lucidly, gives us the opportunity to
experience anything imaginable -- to overcome limitations,
fears, and nightmares, to explore our minds, to enjoy incredible
adventure, and to discover transcendent consciousness.
Can Lucid dreaming be proved? ~ Yes, it was first
scientifically proved by the scientist Stephen LaBerge
and his team. When you sleep your bodies main muscles
are in paralysis to stop you hurting yourself. One
of the few muscles not to be effected are the eyes,
the REM (rapid eye movement).
To prove lucidity LeBerge used himself as the first
subject. Whilst in a lucid dream he signaled with a
of eye movements the moment when he had achieved the
lucid state. When he was lucid they recorded his brain
waves and conducted various experiments
Can anyone do it? Yes, some take longer than others
to achieve lucidity, it can come with the first dream
it can take more practice. Sometimes when you've
been trying so hard for so long, you give up and it
I personally think that some people have the right
brains for lucid dreaming, its a bit like being good
guitar, everyone can learn but some do find it easier
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
I've never heard of anyone who's felt real serious
pain in a lucid dream. Also the old wives tale goes
you die in your dream you die in real life! Well
I've heard lucid dreamers say they died in the dream
and they woke to tell the story
Did you know that in the same way humanity
has made progress in the fields of medicine, transportation
and communication that progress has been made in inducing
and stabilizing different states of consciousness?
"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."
In the past it took a lot of time and effort to gain success
in the practice of lucid dreaming. These days, thanks to
research in modern dream laboratories in the USA and Europe,
and thanks to the invention of state-of-the-art lucid dreaming
devices, the path to lucid dreaming is faster and easier
than ever before.
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 discontinued.
" Now instead
of wasting up to Eight Hours Every Single Day with normal
sleep, by mastering the art of lucid dreaming I am now
able to enjoy truly mind blowing experiences every night!
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,
am I now a butterfly who dreams about being a man?"
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 generating cues.
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.

easier each night to choose what I want to dream about"
