A very good read for anyone interested in dreams in general or on the topic of dreamwalking. The layout flows nicely from chapter to chapter in an order that allows the reader to progressively expand their individual understanding along with what's presented in this book.
If you open the cover it will take you on a journey of the mind and it will lead you as far as your subconscious mind will let you. At the end you will have extensive supply of food for thought and meditation techniques, which you can continuously improve.
The book has a combination of references to the metaphysical beliefs, personal experiences and scientific research in the area of psychology. It is written in a way that is easy to read yet the language is not oversimplified and presents a rather unique structured and grounded approach of the hard-to-grasp concepts.
This could be your missing piece of the puzzle that would enlighten you in many ways and provide answers to questions regarding astral projection, lucid dreaming and out of body experiences.
I enjoyed the episodes Belanger presented about her childhood and later events related to her dream-walking. I thought they made the book feel more personal. For those who are more interested in theory and techniques to practice, that's in this book too.
I was annoyed that she said she couldn't find much on dreamwalking on the Internet besides what she'd written herself. She must not have looked hard enough or maybe didn't try looking for "dream walking", "psychic dreams", "shared dreams", "shamanic dreams" or a whole range of other phrases that will eventually lead one to realize this activity has been going on from the beginning of human civilization. Native shamans dreamwalk as part of their spiritual work. Robert Moss (another author on extraordinary dream practices) mentions doing it too. Since Belanger says in this book that she attended an Association for the Study of Dreams conference, she should display a better knowledge of the researchers and practitioners of this ability, and she should have put some of this background into her end notes or bibliography.
(Edit note: Belanger does not say or imply that she attended an ASD conference. That was my mistake. Please see the comments to this review.)
That said, however, I think this book is invaluable for those who may be both dreamwalkers and vampires, because no other book I know of looks at dreamwalking from the perspective of a psychic vampire and gives advice not only on how to dreamwalk, but on how Not to dreamwalk when you think you might end up feeding on someone you don't want to feed upon. This is a good book for anyone interested in this subject, but it's especially important for some people who may already be practicing this ability, consciously or subconsciously.
With that being said one may expect a certain amount of eccentricity to tangle itself in the webs of her writing. However I have found this notion to be quite the opposite. She is well-grounded and respectful in her approach to the paranormal, including the topic of psychic abilities/ experiences, what this means to oneself and how to go about growing within this realm.
Michelle has written several books, most of which I have in my collection because I had such a positive experience with this read. (She also created the newly-published Watcher Angel Tarot Deck, a decade-long project with talented artist Jackie Williams.) There is a refreshingly simple eloquence to her style of writing. As interesting as it is informative, Psychic Dreamwalking will empower you with the mindset and tools needed to embark on or further strengthen your travels to your own dreamspace and even that of others.
Michelle explains the preparation, actual journey, and other relavant information regarding dream walking in intricate detail, drawing from her past and her own experiences. She truly renders the subject approachable to all audiences, encouraging us to adapt the techniques she has found useful to their own style to those that feel most comfortable personally. With great attention to detail of all facets of the subject she is also careful to explain and explore the ethical relationship between the dreamwalker and those involved.Read more ›
