This book assumes you are already knowledgeable about how to lucid dream (LD). You practice your LD techniques but morning comes and again you wake up realizing you sleep through the night without becoming lucid. What went wrong?

Answer: possibly your brain chemistry. Neurotransmitters control your sleep cycles, memory, and communication between brain cells. If you boost the availability of certain neurotransmitters in the brain you can have longer, more vivid dreams with better retention.

While there is no magic pill that will make you lucid, there are natural supplements that boost the amount and availability of these key neurotransmitters. Mr. Yuschak has given us his personal roadmap on how to use these supplements to enhance your dreaming experience.

I am a lucid dreamer. I have used several of the supplements mentioned in this book and yes they did work to make my dreaming more vivid and more apt to trigger a lucid dream. I found this book to be well written and I recommend it for those who would like more information on using supplements to enhance dreaming.

I am 23 years of age, I have been attempting lucid dreaming since the age of 17 with very limited success. In those years I probably had 4 successful lucid dreams and that really is a low percentage.

I bought Thomas' book, and this really is something unique.

Yes it does work, but it is not a miracle 'cure' you still need to do your part as well.

Words of advice: make sure Galantamine is available in your country without a prescription, I am from South Africa and I could not get my hands on it. I ordered it from overseas and it did reach my doorstep though... *cough* ... Places like Advanced Dream Nutrition will be a good place to order--if you have this problem

Also, I and others make mention of some of the supplements in our posts, it is not advised to use these supplements without reading the book first, as your chances of success will be limited as well as potential danger to your health if not used correctly.

Thank you Thomas for sharing your research with us, it was selfless.

Anybody struggling to learn lucid dreaming should read this book. I have tried every imaginable approach to learn how to have lucid dreams with very limited success. Then along comes this book with a method based purely on neuroscience and I start having extremely long and vivid lucid dreams right out of the gate. A very sincere thank you.

Format: Paperback
[I am amending this review for the 3rd time, as I'm now reading this book for the third time in 2 years and am once again totally blown away. To the praise below I really want to add and emphasize here that this is, in my opinion, the single most important book ever written on lucid dreaming. I can't say I've read them all by any means, but I'm sure I've gone through all the 'classics' and most influential books by Green, LaBerge, Godwin, Waggoner, Garfield, and so on. Many of them are great but no book achieves the sheer practicality and authoritative position Yuschak's does. The lucid dreams these other authors describe and can lead you to are like Disney Land, compared to the interstellar voyages these techniques can provide... Please take this book very seriously. And if you take yourself seriously as a lucid dreamer, you cannot afford to ignore this work or the supplements described, even if ultimately you decide they are not for you.]

This book is very well organized and packed with useful information - it seems hardly a word is wasted. I tried the supplements personally (in particular, galantamine and the extra choline supplements) and the effects were so powerful I am still wondering about it all 2 years later and am almost afraid to try them anymore. The effects reminded me of a high dose of psychedelics: everyone claims and feigns interest of some sort, but once you're really there and beyond that veil, terror seems a constant companion - followed by awe and reverence.

The book contains a lot of references to neurotransmitters and the neurophysiological basis of REM (dream) sleep. I studied neuroscience in school and worked in a psychology dream/sleep/nightmare lab, and as far as I can tell, all the information checks out.

I highly recommend this book because it explains a great deal about the best way to achieve LD's on a regular basis, which can be a difficult obstacle to overcome when it comes to wanting consistency in your results from all your dreaming attempts.

I've followed Thomas's suggestions with 3 of the supplements and can corroborate his theories on correct use of the suggested supplements, with powerful, consistent results that are currently changing my life. Galantamine is just the best!

Thanks Thomas. ;-)

Let's start with the book itself:

It is very well written, not too technical, not too amateurish, everything is explained in a clear fashion, easy to understand, so there is really nothing wrong with the way the material is presented. Still, there is a hidden danger so I'll just start with my personal experience.

After getting this book and reading it, I was quick in getting the main supplements as suggested and started experimenting with. I have to say the intensity of the dreams were amazing, it was easy to wake up and stay lucid for quite a while inside them, there were even a couple of OBEs as well.

So, you ask, what is this danger you speak about?
Well, any true Toltec path threader, or any serious lucid dreamer will tell you of the dangers of attaching your success rate to an external factor, and let me tell you, I was *truly* scared/disheartened when I realized that I was unable to LD anymore without taking these over the counter medications, as a matter of fact it took me nearly a full year to be able to LD again after I ran out of the first and only batch of supplements, and I had been consistently doing it for 10 years.

Do yourself a favor, research on the myriads of techniques for developing your LD ability without attaching yourself to anything mentioned on this book. And if you are interested in the Toltec path, research even more, because there are causes and consequences to LD which do not pertain to this review but that will be affected by this kind of practices.
