  • What It's Like to Be a Natural Lucid Dreamer
    of them recurring One of my frequent dream characters is oddly a college professor of mine from two years ago I forgot all about him until he started showing up the end of summer 2014 in my dreams He is actually the man who I questioned about his sweaty pores He is my friend and tends to just be there with me Next is the woman in Honduras I only saw her that one time but I feel she was trying to explain or teach me something though I don t know if it worked The last one is this glowing orb when I was in a world of just light and energy and glowing orbs It was the most love I had ever felt in my life I was drawn to a blueish glowing orb and I somehow felt deeply loved After the glowing orb world where I wish I could go back to I was sent to a shopping mall in human form a human world type dream It was so sudden I felt completely abandoned I was screaming the name of the glowing orb like a nutcase in the mall until my throat hurt and was raspy But the screaming in my dream woke me up in my bed I felt devastated Though having the experience of being a glowing orb and feeling such love was helpful it also caused me great sadness and I can t get over feeling as if I lost something Dreams like that can be real game changers they can affect the way you view reality forever Do you meditate in waking life or practice any kind of exercises in mindfulness I was meditating for a bit in the afternoons but it quickly begin to confuse and drain me Reason being I felt like I was being put in different realities where I couldn t remember this life I have here The feeling right before going into another body another life was like if you were to go down a roller coaster that feeling in your stomach and head like you are falling For example I suddenly was a man with blond hair in a living room watching the news on televison I just knew I was waiting to see my face on there because I had committed a crime Surely enough there was my photo flashed across the news My whole being at the time felt like warm water had been poured over me I knew my life was over and I was going to prison It was just a waiting game until the police caught me I was thinking there has to be another way out referring to my thought on just killing myself seeing as I didn t want to go to prison Then wait I know I have brown hair I thought though I couldn t remember this life I closed my eyes and tried my best to remember whatever I could of this life As I started

  • Interview with Bill Murphy, Creator of DreamNET
    using the technology offered by DreamNET if your goal is to improve your chance at recording your dreams We re still advocates of self discipline to improve dream control and recall We saw a growing number of dream mask and headband technologies on Kickstarter in 2013 Can you tell us where the market lies today and where DreamNET fits into this There have been a number of items that appealed to the fascination of dreams and popular movies certainly fueled this trend However we also see that most claim to induce lucidity and use external cues to do so Lights and sounds that make their way into the dream environment can be interpreted in a number ways and the possibility of disturbing a sleeper is more likely than inducing a lucid dream We know that statement runs contrary to the claims of some but we focused on detecting lucidity rather than claim to induce it DreamNET has been designed by and for lucid dreamers Our wish is to provide a sensible means of gathering and sharing sleep research data This could lead to discovering correlations between dreams and environmental factors such as the amount of daylight a person is exposed to each season diet induction methods and more that could influence the ability to achieve lucidity So are infrared REM detection masks a thing of the past Are EEG headbands where it s at The infrared REM detection masks are designed to react when the eyes are moving under closed eyelids but they are unable to detect specific frequencies that may indicate when an actual lucid dream is occurring DreamNET has proper electrode placement and the software allows for the filtering of the different frequencies generated by the brain Only DreamNET has been designed to detect when a person has likely become self aware while dreaming with selective filtering of brainwave frequencies and adjustable duration of how long the selected frequencies are maintained before gently awakening the sleeper which provides an opportunity to record the experience What other features will DreamNET develop in future An important future capability that DreamNET is developing is a new research platform with the option to stream live data There have been some features that people have wanted that we can implement but we prefer to do so in software to keep the headband as small and light as possible People still want the option to explore the use of external cues and that s easy for us to do thanks to Bluetooth controllable lamps and speakers We can easily trigger flashing screens for those that want to test if that can trigger a cue for the dreamer to become lucid We also have the ability to detect muscle movement but need to remind users that electromyography EMG detection results in a signal that can add electrical noise and cause interference to the faint EEG data being monitored But the feature exists now in the software we support for those that want to explore its

  • Interview with Peter Maich
    and in some ways the more isolated you become as you reshape your own view of reality I needed to allow myself time to accept each dream and any new experiences I might have had and allow these times to integrate into my view of the world For me the dreams concerning the void and light energy are more recent and of a nature that makes me question even more what reality is They have been so profound and as life changing as lucid dreaming itself There are a lot of views on what and where the dreams are taking place and as I have no belief in religion or many of the spiritual practices I needed to cement my dreams in my mind in a way that allowed them to be pure experience and not taint them in any way Even with experience there are times when it is hard to accept the reality of lucid dreaming and I needed to get over some fears Supplement induced dreams for me are almost indistinguishable from waking reality in detail while in context they can be vastly different At times I still question the dream and below is a severe reality check I Hope I am Dreaming I was facing a lady with a skill saw in her hand She would not let me go past her and I walked up to her and said this is my dream and you can t hurt me I then put my hand into the saw and was thinking that I really hope this is a dream as it s going to hurt if it s not Well it did hurt bits of finger went flying and then I held my hand up to her it healed and she smiled I feel that at times like this the dream character is testing you for reasons of their own What thoughts or ideas helped you become more accepting of fears And did you find this changed your lucid dreams I thought about the dreams and how I felt after them and realized that a lot of the time and in different ways each dream was a progression on the last The dreams were starting to have energy appear or states where I was body less but with awareness and that was quite profound In my mind at times I existed as pure energy with awareness and no sense of self or body and this just stunned me At the same time I wanted to access more of these states and explore them if I could I came to believe that whatever part of me created the dreamscape would allow me to explore further as my skills increased and so I started to treat the lucid dreams that were similar to waking reality like a school where skills were developed in preparation for other tasks These skills were to make correct judgments increase the ability to focus and retain the state of awareness and interact with the dream characters in a respectful way Some of the dream characters are more aware than others and seem to be pleased at times with my actions Wheelchair Dream with Old Lady I was riding my bike and went past a group of people standing on the side of a street Across from them was an old lady in a wheelchair who was looking at me I rode past her and then decided to go back I picked her up and carried her across the street to where the other people were waiting she was very light and small and her body changed to that of a baby while in my arms I carried her across to the other group and they all looked very happy and pleased with me Each dream went a little deeper and left me glowing afterwards with feelings of wellbeing and so I started to believe that I would not come to any harm I started to enjoy some of the states more and then began to look for them in my dreams I was also starting to see the energy and void dreams as beyond dreaming in some way but could not define how or what I meant by this but was very keen to pursue this line of thought and see where it might lead Sometimes lucid dreamers feel unusual sensations Can you can share a lucid dream where unusual sensations felt prominent What did you make of it One of the more unusual dream entries was in a WILD attempt In this one I got to the stage of experiencing hypnagogic images and from there I was shunted backwards through what felt like an electric field This was accompanied by a very strong jolt and I had no idea what was happening to me I ended up in a dream and that was fine but I had not felt entry sensations as strong as that before or since There are times in a dream where I will be in a place normally a room and it gets very quiet and I will sense a presence and get feelings of dread that something awful is about to happen If I am brave enough to go with these feelings I will be sucked or pulled along in a burst of energy and end up in another dream or in the void I suspect that I may have been getting an attack of sleep paralysis from within the dream but am still not sure about this There are also quite often in the dreams a Mandala in the sky that seems to be a boil of energy They are normally round and seething with color and energy and they start to draw me in I have not allowed them to take me yet but will do so at some time in the future The Lady in the Market I recall one incident in which a lady in a market was teaching me how to smell flowers correctly I went to catch the scent of a flower and the flower turned into one of these balls of energy and I was sucked out of one dream into another Since this LDE issue focuses on encounters with spiritual god like dream figures or energies in the lucid dream state have you had any encounters with powerful dream figures which surprised you What did you make of that The encounters with figures of this nature are rare for me and I can only recall one small part of a dream that might feature a spiritual figure I don t have any belief in religion or in god like beings so most likely my mind is not seeded to create any of them The encounters with energy are becoming more common and are a nature that suits me better I think of these dreams of light and energy as being more than a dream more of a contact in some way Lady of Gold I am in a room and looking at a little boy playing on the floor He is in the room by himself and the scene changes to a lady sitting in a lotus position in the void She is golden and raises her hand and blows stardust of gold onto the boy This boy then appears in the middle of her tongue and he is made of sparkling crystals of gold You almost have to be an experienced lucid dreamer to truly understand the impact of light and energy interactions in the lucid dream state They can be surprising especially when you find yourself being blasted by light What kinds of light encounters have you had The first dream was about 15 years ago long before I had any real understanding of lucid dreaming White Light I was in a hotel and lying down in the afternoon and was in a familiar space in my mind observing small spots of light appearing in my eyes I knew this was the start of going to sleep as I was good at getting to this state and then going to sleep or falling into a dream I had been thinking about my health for some reason and associated these blue spots with healing and blue as a healing color or energy I was observing these spots and got this rush or sensation of speed I just went with it scared but also curious I was in a tunnel of light and moving at an unbelievable speed along it There was no sensation of me with a body but I knew it was me being sucked along this tunnel and it seemed to go for a long time but may have only been a few seconds The color was just pure there was nothing I had ever seen that even came close to the purity of it It was more like it was a living form than simply color After this rush along the tunnel I exploded into a white light just a massive blast of white light and I think along with a good loud bang in my head At the time I had no idea what had happened and of course not a single person to talk to it about This kept me puzzling for years and also many years later lead me to ask for blue light in a dream and treat blue light as a healing color Blue Light Dream Before bed I dwelled on the concept of energy as light and decided I wanted blue light or energy to come to me in a dream I relaxed and drifted into the awareness that the supplements seem to bring on and went into a set of OBE type body feelings you feel your energy body floating out in bits and at times parts get stuck and the feeling is of the stuck bits being plucked out to join arm and legs In time I got out of my body and found I was still in my room and in bed My room looked about the same but the color was different and one door too many The dream went for a long time but the bit of major interest is how the blue light appeared as two beams of focused but vibrating light They snaked across the room entered my hands and became part of my body The first time this happened it was spontaneous and I called for the light again and experienced the light and feeling four separate times I had no fear and the feelings are very hard to describe the light enters you and floods your body energy dream body and becomes a part of you or you become part of it The light makes you tingle and vibrate and a peaceful warm feeling overtakes your body Do you give any symbolic importance to the color of the light Or the type of light for example a light beam versus a jagged vibrating light I recall one lucid dream of two strands of light being shot into my left eye One was a white thin beam of light while the other was a jagged vibrating orange colored light I don t think the color of the light in the dreams is that relevant but it is more the fact that if you leave it to the dream as in the rainbow tunnel it will give you a few colors While if you are trying for a new effect and ask for a color it will be there This may be the way the dreams give some comfort to you and also the illusion of control There are times when you can ask for the dream to surprise you and the colors will be random In my blue light dream the light appeared as snaking beams of energy and they entered my body through my hands in another I was holding a rock just looking at it and the rock started glowing and then entered into my hand and filled my body In both cases it was a smooth form of light that filled my body with vibration as it moved through me I wonder if most of the dreams are made of this energy as placing a hand into a DC dream character or yourself or into a solid object has a similar feeling but not the same intensity or effect on you Who Are You I Asked I had one lucid dream in which I asked a very aware DC who he was He replied that he was me We talked a little and I suggested that we meld together to see what happened and we tried about three times to do this His energy went into me a little way but was rejected each time It was a funny feeling as he could not fill me or even go through me but was bounced out with the same feeling that a magnet produces when it repels itself So what do you make of light in lucid dreams Do you consider it an expression of energy or awareness or incipient matter or what I think the light is the energy that forms our reality physical matter and the content of our dreams and may come from different sources in the same way we have electricity generated in different ways but it is essentially the same product To me the light is pure energy and we can either call it up and have it shaped by our will or experience it in a more pure form and bathe in this It makes no difference if you conjure up a green pill to cure a headache in the dream or ask to bathe in a glowing ball of green light What you believe will work is what will work So the light is the basic fabric of reality and may be the building blocks of all reality I am really keen to experience this energy in as pure a form as I can and feel that if we can get tuned into this we may be able to explore beyond our own minds in a new realm Like computer code this may be a common form of exchange between all matter and be a type of consciousness itself This might be the interface with which we make contact with any other beings if they exist I am not sure if we generate the energy add to the total amount of available energy or tap into other sources of this energy possibly a mix of three might be closer to the correct answer If this is the case it becomes very interesting as the next step in identifying and tracking the sources of any external energy The most amazing dreams are where you are contacted by the light and it comes to you in a form that is just not expected and in ways that are foreign to your own way of thinking Does being in the lucid dream state make the experience of light or energy more intense Why do you say that Yes the deeper you are into a dream and the more you get comfortable with accepting this energy into yourself the better the experience Just like needing to keep emotions in check to keep the lucid states the more experience with this energy the more you can observe and make judgments about the experiences The first time I called for the energy or light it was so strong and so invasive I recall thinking that I hope I am the same after this and How will this energy change me It was so intense and just filled me but I also had no fear of the light I just wondered how I could be the same afterwards Like some lucid dreamers you have spent some time in the Void Tell us what you mean by that In some of my early dreams I would ask for a new dream and then find myself in a space that contained nothing It was a dark but comforting place and would contain flashes of light or streams of energy I used to think this is what was described as hypnagogic images and they may be the same This interested me and I found that in time I was able to stay there a little longer and observe these forms I used to say I was observing pure thought or energy before it became anything I would put my awareness closer to the forms and try to observe the color and structure that I was witnessing One dream goal is to attach to a thread of energy and just see where it goes I termed this place the space between dreams and then the void but it s not empty as the word void suggests but more of the place that contains our dreams Do you have any lucid dreams that show how one gets into the Void stays lucid and what happens there There are several ways that I access this state from within a lucid dream and they are not difficult From within a dream I will ask for a mirror and then with thoughtful intent ask for the space between dreams to be beyond the mirror It s the oddest feeling to be part way through and have dream feet on the floor of one dream and be struggling in the grip of a mirror but also have part of you emerging into the blackness I can ask for this place or state anytime and also have gone to it on the other side of walls So really it is by intent that you can call it up and after getting used to the feelings of being there prolong the state if you wish The Great Spin I was in bed and attempting a WILD after a small dose of galantamine When the feelings of an OBE started to

  • Interview with Dylan Howard on King Of Oneiros
    main story came from the idea and experience of finding true love in a lucid dream from my own experience I feel the essence of dreams really does reflect the real world and at times find that same meaning as when I wake to experience life They are very precious memories I cling to that give great joy I hoped to put these concepts into the film and have people experience their own imagination like a visual mediation Other films inspired my work and style such as non verbal narratives like the award winning Baraka and Samsara by Ron Fricke also Tree of Life by Terrence Malick also Enter the Void by Gaspar Noé These films allow the audience to not follow a general narrative but in a way create its own context during the experience I consider it to be like a stream of consciousness a montage of dreams in all directions random yet we can create a link between them What s your favorite lucid dream scene in King Of Oneiros My favorite scene in the film is when he realizes he s dreaming He goes through a schoolroom chalkboard to find his love in great underground temple with 3 000 candles lighting a pathway to her as she expresses her love for him It s my favorite because it features everything I love about dreams in surreal environments that reflect the moment and emotions that are taking place within the characters which is their passion It s also my favorite because I consider it to be the most visually striking and beautiful scene that I had in my mind before doing the film It was an amazing moment to film that scene having a direct film connection from my mind s imagination to being right before me Recreating a dream in real life is profound even if it s just a film set What are you most proud of about the film I am proud of certain facts in making this film I made this 36 minute film in just 6 days due to time constraints and budget I made the film for under 15 000 and with a lot of donated time from cast and crew I m proud of the passion and creativity we all put into the piece knowing that it s different than most films out there during this time I m proud to call this film mine It s a film that I myself can watch over and over and get something new out of it Do you plan to make any more films inspired by lucid dreams In short I have many more dreams to tell on the big screen Receiving all this attention and excitement alone has empowered me to continue to share my dreams in this format The amazing thing is everyone has amazing dreams to share and at some point I d love to do a dream series where people send me their dreams and I choose them
