Believe it or not, I used the techniques in A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming: Mastering the Art of Oneironautics by to successfully have a lucid dream. Two, in fact. In the first, I knew I was dreaming but just kept on waitressing; as I remember thinking, “Well, I’d better get back to work; these people are waiting for me.” In the second, I decided to stop what I was doing and fly. I got about nine feet before I woke up. If I wanted to devote a bit more time to it, I’m confident it could be a regular occurrence.
The Main Idea:
Lucid dreaming is the ability to know you’re dreaming while you’re dreaming. This book teaches you how to reconnect with your dreams; how to have a lucid dream; and what to do once you’re lucid.
