Lucid dreaming, i.e. dreaming with full awareness, is one of the most ecstatic experiences open to human beings. Yet creating this state of bliss has traditionally been difficult - the naive approach of autosuggestion produces only very low success rates.
In "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming", Stephen LaBerge discusses far more efficient techniques, including one pioneered by himself - MILD, or Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams. He explains how to create conditions conducive to lucid dreaming, how to prolong a lucid dream once one has one, and how to use lucid dreams for creative problem solving, health, entertainment and spiritual growth.
I should point out, however, that there is no miracle method for having lucid dreams instantanously. The techniques that this book offers still need to be exercised, patiently and diligently over a period of weeks if not months before results will start to materialize. But if you are willing and motivated to invest the necessary work and effort, this book will be one of the best guides there is. For those readers who prefer a simple, step-by-step approach, I would also recommend "Lucid Dreams in 30 Days" by Keith Harary and Pamela Weintraub.

THE BEST AVAILABLE GUIDE TO LUCID DREAMING!
Although this inspiring book presents a new model of dreaming and consciousness, its approach is primarily practical, covering methods for inducing lucid dreams, and a variety of applications. LaBerge also includes a brief history of his scientific research; all is presented in an engaging and comprehensible manner. Reading the book gave me an appreciation for his dedicated pioneering in the field of mind/body mapping and the ingeniousness of his lucid dream induction methods and devices.
This book offers the most extensive collection of step-by-step techniques for increasing consciousness during sleep. It also includes accounts of what a variety of lucid dreamers have done with their dream lives. For me, the most important point was how the same skills and mindfulness developed through learning to lucid dream can also deeply enhance one's waking life.
Why sleep through dreams (and sleepwalk through waking life) when lucidity is a learnable skill? This excellent, easy-to-follow guide is essential reading for dream explorers of all levels of experience.

I purchased this book at a vunerable time in my life. I had never heard of Lucid dreaming but it sounded interesting when I accidently stumbled upon it so I thought'why not?"

Well half way through the book I had my first lucid dream. AMAZING!

I began writing down my dreams in the morning. Even a sentence or just a word I could remember from them at first. After a few days I started rememberng more details. I wrote them down for a week. Then I wrote a page of common links I kept seeing in my dreams (ie: rejection) It was always common. And a page of things I wanted to do if I ever became lucid. I re-read all of these things often and would say to myself outload many times a day " Am I dreaming?" If I was not, I would follow up with " are you sure?"

So I layed in bed one night and tried the W.I.L.D technique. I started seeing vortex swirls and colours with my eyes closed but still awake. I was then thrust into a very life like dream. I asked myself if I was dreaming. I replied to myself that 'no! Of course I wasn't" I asked myself Are you sure? And suddenly I looked around and said "Oh my god, I am dreaming". Everything suddenly changed!!! I felt like I was not in the dream but in real life. I was lucid!!

Immediatley as I looked around, the room I was 'standing in' fell away like it dismantled itself and the floor dropped away from under my feet. I was falling in pitch blackness and I could see a red light.

I was yelling in my dream that I was awake, and I was so excited and then I woke up. So dissapointed but I felt euphoric for days afterwards.
I have only had 1 other lucid dream. I realized I was dreaming, became lucid and woke up instantly from the excitement.

This has to be one of my favorite books. Everyone needs to buy and read this book. If you are not familiar with the concept of lucid dreams, this will answer all your questions. This is based on scientific research and not a lot of the hokey new age concepts you find in other lucid dreaming books. This is also NOT about dream interpretation but rather a simple, easy, and clear strategy to control your dreams. The "MILD" and "WILD" techniques can get you started the first day. This influenced me in ways that I never imagined, and I have since influenced others based on its concepts. It's also a good strategy to tap into some of the creative aspects for people who are artists, writers, and engineers. This is a must read and a must try.

Actually, I bought and read this book a few years ago and picked it up again three weeks ago.

I followed the advise and started a dream journal, doing reality tests during the day...etc. Only thing I do additionally is listen to a "Hemi-Sync" tape everyday on the web.

Had my first lucid dream last night after about three weeks after rediscovering the book. Totally cool! I've had them before, but it's the type of thing that is so cool it doesn't lose it's novelty! And it really defies satisfactory description. Absolutely fantastic altered state of reality!!

Another tip. Stare at your hands during the day and before going to bed. I did so in last night's dream and I was missing a thumb. So I knew "this is it!". Looked at my hands later in the dream and one of my fingers was bent really funny.

Get the book!
