Control your dreams (ebook)

Anyone can learn to have lucid dreams, and this ebook tells you how. Lucid dreams are those dreams where you become aware you are dreaming, and can even begin to control the reality of the dream. Adventure, problem-solving and consequence-free indulgence await! And for those interested in the mind, lucid dreams are a great place to explore the nature of their own consciousness. The ebook is written as a sort of travel guide, telling you what you need to take on your journey and what to expect when you start to lucid dream. It finishes off with a quick review of the scientific literature on lucid dreaming and links and references for further reading if you want to continue your exploration of lucid dreaming.

I wrote this with friend, and lucid dreamer, Cat Bardsley. My wife Harriet Cameron provided some beautiful illustrations which you can find throughout the book (and on the cover you can see here). The book is Creative Commons licensed so you can copy it and share it as you will, and even modify and improve (as long as you keep the CC licensing). It’s available on smashwords on a pay-what-you-want-basis (and that includes nothing, so it is yours for free if you’d like).

“Control your dreams” is my second self-published ebook. You can also get “Explore your blindspot” from smashwords (which is completely free, and also CC licensed). The wonderful folk at 40k books published my essay The Narrative Escape last year (and after doing all the formatting and admin associated with these two new ebooks I am more and more in awe of what they did).

Sweet Dreams!

    What perfect timing, I’ve been trying to get into Lucid Dreaming recently without much luck.

    I have always had the ability to lucid dream occasionally, but with no control. It was a random, enjoyable occurrence. However, after a quick read I scored 2 lucid events in one nights sleep. I can’t imagine what real practice would allow me to accomplish.

    I’m not particularly lucid even when awake, but cheers for the e-book and Happy New Mind Hacks year, all the same!

    I’ve been an occasional lucid dreamer for most of my life, the first one being when I was around ten years old and I had a recurring nightmare which I finally became aware of and was able to end it differently. I look forward to reading this. Thanks!

    Is it possible to get a paper copy of The Narrative Escape? I am resolutely without Kindle.

      You can buy a PDF off, and a bunch of other, kindle-independent, formats
