Learn to Lucid Dream: Powerful Techniques for Awakening Creativity and Consciousness Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Follow your dreams and discover your inner self - a beginner’s guide.
You’re the stuff dreams are made of - or rather, your subconscious is. Learn to Lucid Dream teaches you how to deliberately explore and manipulate your dreams (called “lucid dreaming”) to gain insight into your inner self. You might even learn to conquer your nightmares - or just enjoy the dreamy freedom of flying.
This methodical introduction teaches you both the science and spirituality of dreaming. You’ll practice developing dream awareness and apply the discoveries you make while sleeping towards improving your waking hours. Lucid dreaming can help you heighten your focus, prioritize your core values, and be more observant.
This guide to lucid dreaming includes:
- Step-by-step plan - Follow each chapter’s research-based lessons and techniques to develop and hone your lucid dreaming skills.
- Personal accounts - Hear the author’s firsthand anecdotes of lucid dreaming - and the positive effects their lessons have had on her life.
- Dream sequence - Solidify your new skills in a 24-hour lucid dreaming practice sequence, including exercises for morning, daytime, bedtime, and nighttime.

Fortunately, this book now offers what I was looking for. The chapters cover the following material:
CH 1: A Brief Overview of Lucid Dreaming – what lucid dreaming is; explicit awareness; creativity, not control; benefits ( be free, improve creativity, resolve nightmares, overcome problems and fears, have fun, know thyself, transcend); Tibetan dream yoga; the beginner, the experienced, the proficient & the expert; pioneers of lucid dreaming; Stanford Sleep Lab; dream science (why we dream, why we forget dreams, dreaming and reality are the same to the brain, meaning?)
CH 2: Preliminaries to Lucid Dreaming – 4 stages of sleep (REM, light N1, intermediate N2, deep sleep N3); sleep paralysis; good sleep habits (sleep hygiene, relaxation, looking forward to dreams); dream recall (plan to remember, notice awakenings, write dreams down, lie still, jog your memory, set the alarm); dream journaling; set lucid dreaming goals (plan specific tasks, save room for spontaneity); “big dreams”
CH 3: Methods of Induction – dreamsigns (identify, intend to notice, categories); Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD) (setting intentions through the 3 Rs, practical tips); reflect on your present state (Am I awake?, rereading state test); how advanced lucid dreamers become lucid; external reminders; waking dreamsigns; the sleep interruption method; galantamine; Wake-Initiated Lucid Dreaming (WILD) (the wake to REM sleep transition, how to induce WILD – mantras and counting, meditation, visualization, sleeping position)
CH 4: In Lucid Dreams – remember your goal; postpone awakenings; don’t forget you’re dreaming; endless possibilities (exercise control, increase positive emotions, skill rehearsal, creative problem-solving, dream sex); transforming nightmares; self-integration (dream archetypes and the “shadow”, real-time dream interpretation, conciliatory dialogues, healing dreams); the people in your dreams; spiritual awakening; out-of-body experiences
CH 5: Growing Your Practice – nightly experience log; dream incubation; embrace mindfulness; lucidity in waking reality (parallels, “if this were a dream I would…”, set and carry out intentions, take more responsibility; letting go of fears (is lucid dreaming safe?, is it addictive?, will I feel pain?, will it make me tired?); common mistakes (moving too fast, getting frustrated, lacking motivation, distractions, unreliable techniques)
CH 6: Practice Sequence – daytime, bedtime, nighttime, critical dos and don’ts; continuing the journey
If lucid dreaming interests you, I don’t think there is a better book out there to guide you, whether you have never experience lucid dreaming before, or, like me, you have but want to increase your skills and learn more.
But that’s JustMe.
