  • Charlie Morley on Dreams of Awakening
    theatre scene that I was involved in at the time This meant that I approached writing the book as I would writing a play The most obvious manifestation of this is in the three act structure of the book Ground Path and Germination and the fact that I have tried to thread my own stories in throughout the book to allow for something of a narrative arc throughout Gosh that sounds a bit pretentious actually I guess I just wrote the book from the experience that I had which was writing for theatre Yeah that sounds a bit better Oh and I thought the book was finished about a year before it actually was because once Hay House got hold of it they really encouraged me to go deeper into the research and practices so that the book stood tall academically as well as practically There is a lot more mainstream interest in lucid dreaming nowadays Will your book appeal to everyone or just hardcore lucid dreamers Charlie Morley I would actually like this to be the book that brings lucid dreaming into the mainstream I never thought I would say that because I have always been quite an alternative person but I feel that so many in the mainstream public are hungry to learn more about lucid dreaming and so we should be happy about that and look to work more into the mainstream This doesn t mean that we water down the practices or commercialise the underground lucid dreaming scene but it does mean that we speak more openly about lucid dreaming and help to make it more accessible to everyday people What response has the book received so far Charlie Morley So far I have actually been a bit embarrassed by how good the response has been Certain organisations and journalists got sent press copies two weeks ago and so far we have had reviews saying stuff like This book is life changing and One of the best books on dream work that I have ever read So I guess they like it but maybe they are just saying that because I sent them a free copy Anyway I will definitely be careful not to believe my own hype because although it s the journalists who write the reviews it s the lucid dreamers who visit your website and who read this interview who really count So I truly hope that they like it too and that it will help to expand their practice Have you got any more books in the pipeline Charlie Morley Yup I literally just signed the contract for my second book with Hay House yesterday The second book is much more of a beginners guide to lucid dreaming because it s part of their Hay House Basics range but it will be a great introduction to lucid dreaming for people who perhaps aren t so into the deeper spiritual aspects which we explore in Dreams of Awakening Oh and I also have

  • Am I Crazy? My Dream Was So REAL!
    lucid dreamers have these kind of intensified false awakenings and I believe you were semi lucid because you DID stop to ask yourself if you were dreaming Yet you logically refuted it because of the lifelike level of detail in essence this was your failed reality check So you were lodged in a unique state of false awakening unable to become fully lucid yet parts of your conscious brain were activated as they would normally when you wake up for real But this isn t a normal state of dreaming I m fairly sure it is an anomaly in the brain far stranger than most typical lucid dreams and that s saying something And as you know false awakenings tend to happen more when you lucid dream but this is a special kind which is especially exciting or shocking One solution is to habitually perform foolproof reality checks when you wake up rather than arguing with yourself which is unreliable because the dreaming mind doesn t argue so rationally anyway This will free you from the confusion and allow you to explore the false awakening in more detail as a lucid mind I have used these vivid false awakenings to become lucid and after that point of acceptance the dream can become just as surreal as any other It is no longer bent on mimicking your real world to the point you can t believe the woman simply was never there Fun stuff I m sure you ll remember this dream vividly for many years and though it shocked and scared you initially for its ability to mimic reality this just reveals how powerful the mind can be You are not crazy I think you ll come to be in awe of this experience and relish the time it happens to you again Share email facebook tumblr twitter reddit google pinterest Your Gateway to Lucid Dreams Some people dream to sleep Others sleep to dream Start now About the author Rebecca Turner is the creator of World of Lucid Dreaming where she offers valuable first hand insights Learn more about Rebecca Take her home study program Connect with her on Facebook Twitter and the lucid dream forum Latest Extraordinary fantasy art by Jeremiah Morelli Jeremiah Morelli is a whimsical fantasy artist and visual storyteller He places conceptual fairytale creatures in vivid dreamscapes to capture the imagination He s also a school teacher and amazingly finds the time and motivation to create this huge gallery of artwork Such light and dark fairytale paintings make beautiful places to visit in your lucid dreams Latest 12 awesome Inception style dreamscapes Inspired and named for the notion of Flatland artist and photographer Aydin Buyuktas has created a series of works where a space of surprises creates a space that creates surprises Based on photos of Istanbul Buyuktas explains We live in places that most of the times don t draw our attention places that transform our memories places that the artist gives another dimension

  • Are Lucid Dreams Tiring?
    if you have a hectic life and already have to get up at 6am to go to a stressful job I wouldn t recommend waking yourself an hour earlier to practice lucid dreaming If you suspect you aren t getting enough sleep which is 7 9 hours for most people then you are probably already sleep deprived These lucid dreaming techniques will only exacerbate that problem Instead I would recommend using techniques which encourage relaxation such as meditation self hypnosis and Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams 2 Perma Lucid Dreamers A very small fraction of the population are perma lucid dreamers They lucid dream every night and have been doing so for as long as they can remember Some of them don t even know that conscious dreaming is special they assume everyone does it They just started lucid dreaming naturally as children and it became the permanent way of dreaming to retain a waking level of consciousness during their night time hallucinations These people often complain of feeling engulfed by their lucid dreams unable to shut their brains down at night They say lucid dreams are tiring So what s going on here This is a truly under researched area so we don t have any good scientific answers True perma lucid dreamers are always conscious during their dreams but why would 100 extra minutes of consciousness at night make them feel so frazzled Is it the sheer larger than life lucid dream intensity Possibly but I can t say I ve ever felt negatively overwhelmed by lucidity like that Perhaps there is an underlying sleep disorder to be identified here If the effect is purely sleep lost to a conscious dream then we re talking about a difference of 60 90 minutes of lost sleep compared to a casual lucid dreamer or 100 minutes compared to a non lucid dreamer That s because REM dream sleep is divided to a handful of phases totaling about 100 minutes every night Your dreams are scattered with the longest ones later in the morning In no way do you dream for 8 hours every night If you can shed some light on the why some perma lucid dreamers wake up feeling tired please share your thoughts at the lucid dreaming forum or in the comments below I am not a perma lucid dreamer myself and would love to have more insight Final Thoughts Lucid dreams are beautiful and joyful and inspiring affairs which give us positive life changing experiences in contrast to the mental chaos of anxiety dreams or nightmares Could they also be tiring It s not a complaint I hear from your typical lucid dreamer Rather it s a projected worry from people who have never lucid dreamed before This makes it one of the great misconceptions about lucid dreaming Share email facebook tumblr twitter reddit google pinterest Your Gateway to Lucid Dreams Some people dream to sleep Others sleep to dream Start now About the author Rebecca Turner

  • Can You Confuse Lucid Dreams with Reality?
    simultaneously being aware of both locales In a lucid dream daydreaming of a beach would most likely result in me appearing there and the living room scene being left behind In this thought driven reality thoughts drive the behavior of the physical dream world And of course the big giveaway is in a lucid dream I can do impossible things like push my own fingers through my hand see reality check However this is typically used to distinguish a dream from reality and not the other way around Indeed 95 of the population goes to sleep every night and fully accepts their dreams as reality It s only when they wake up they realize it wasn t real In this sense you can confuse normal dreams with reality can you not But there is no concern for a sane mind to become locked in the belief that they are lucid dreaming when in fact they are awake The Memory Exception Have you ever recalled a memory of something trivial then realized it wasn t a real memory but a recollection of a dream For a moment you were fooled Why Memories are tricky They are blurry and subjective and emotionally rooted You can t critically analyze them in hindsight and so it s easy to confuse snippets of dreams with real life memories By the way we re talking about mundane memories here a snippet of conversation perhaps not jumping off the Empire State Building False Awakenings A final word on false awakenings aka dreaming of waking up These can be exceptionally realistic dreams like the most vivid kind of lucid dream and yet you still don t know you re dreaming Because you dreamed of waking up you naturally assume you are now awake Confusing much A false awakening has all the characteristics of a lucid dream vivid intense self awareness without realizing you re dreaming or taking conscious control It is a good example of a scenario where you can confuse a dream with reality based on it s tangible and realistic nature The worst case scenario in a false awakening is you get up get dressed eat breakfast head out the door for work only to wake up back in bed again This next awakening can be a false awakening too And so it can be a frustrating cycle The answer is to perform a reality check when you wake up Often this transforms a false awakening into a lucid dream And while for some people the experience may frustrating as it plays out I don t believe there is really any doubt of reality when you finally do wake up for real Objective thought will reveal whether you are dreaming or not and the only reason a false awakening persists in the first place is because dreams lack objective thought This is the key to distinguishing your reality for what it is and it s automatically provided by a healthy human consciousness Share email facebook tumblr
