Lucid dreaming is the art of becoming more self-aware in our dreams. Often when we realize we’re dreaming, the dream becomes clearer, and colors more vibrant. We’re aware, alert, and we know that ours is a dreaming landscape. The sheer joy of it often lifts us off our feet and we float into the sky, looking down at all of the dream’s creation. The rules are different here.
This is a common plant from Mexico, where they smoke a joint of the dried leaves while drinking a tea made from more leaves before going to sleep. They ask for guidance in dreams and have lucid dreams that help them in times of difficulty or uncertainty. Smoking the joint is neither good nor bad, as long as you get used to the harsh smoke, but the tea is terribly bitter and difficult to gulp down... I've had a fair amount of semi-lucid dreams with it and, despite my special fondness for entheogens from Mexico, I would say that the next plant is a much more effective and simple way to pursue your lucid-dreaming objectives. This is a tiny, white root from Xhosa, Africa. Shamans mix a little piece of chopped root with cold water with a wooden spoon until (allegedly) it starts to foam, then he takes some of the foam until he feels his stomach swollen, and then he goes to sleep into a lucid-dream.

Has anyone ever heard the term “ lucid dreaming ”? Has anyone ever seen Inception ? It’s the same basic concept.
January 6, 2008 on 2:13 pm | In Dream Books , Lucid Dreams | 2 Comments Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D., popularized the term lucid dreaming back in the early 1980s with the success of his best-selling book, Lucid Dreaming. He is not the only lucid dream researcher, and as we have seen with the Tibetans, he is certainly not the first. But LaBerge is the most successful at communicating the idea of lucid dreaming in a way that people in Europe and the United States can understand. LaBerge gets people excited about trying lucid dreaming. Since the original best-selling book, LaBerge has written several others on lucid dreaming.

Dream Library - Non _interpretive Dreamwork - Lucid Dreaming, Mutual Dreaming, Dream Psi, Intentional Dreaming...Lucid dreaming has rushed to the forefront of the dream world and has unfolded a whole realm of its own. It has its own teachers, its own research and laboratories, its own books and manuals, its own institutions, its own technologies and Web sites, newsgroups, its own priests, shamans , distracters, critics and newsletters. For those of you who have never heard of all this, lucid dreaming is dreaming where the dreamer is aware that they he/she is dreaming and yet does not wake up. Although the ability to do this has been noted throughout history and at times consciously sought after, it wasn't popular in our culture until around 1985 and the publication of Steven LaBerge's _ Lucid Dreaming _. (Though it was gaining popularity in the dream underground since the sixties) Now it is accepted by the scientific community as well and has growing support around the world.
Lucid dreaming is a state of consciousness where the dreamers are fully aware that they are asleep, and that what they are experiencing is a state of reality completely manufactured by the dreaming mind. Just about everyone has experienced a flash of lucid recognition during a dream -- knowing that they are in fact "just dreaming." However, lucid dreaming as I am defining it here is a more intensified and sustained state of dream realization. At its best, lucid dreaming is a completely conscious state of mind where the doors to the conscious and unconscious minds are fully open to each other -- available for exploration, examination and to be fearlessly embraced. Imagine the value in being able to ask a dream character or image: Who are you?
Source : ABC News For many of us, dreams are a strange other world -- puzzling, terrifying and beyond our control. But some psychologists now say, under the right conditions, we can control our dreams to have fun or to learn from them. One way to do that is through lucid dreaming, in which you choose what happens in your dream. You can fly through the air, swim with dolphins, tame the monster in your nightmares, speak to a dead relative -- anything you want to do, all the while aware that it's a dream.
Home > Dream Control > Tibetan Dream Yoga Tibetan dream yoga is the original form of lucid dreaming. It is a philosophical practice created in Tibetan Buddhism at least 1,000 years ago. Just like lucid dreams, the aim of this is to awaken the consciousness in the dream state. However, Buddhist monks have more esoteric goals in mind... Their aim is to harness the power of the lucid dream state and then complete a number of set tasks to take them to the next level.
