Here’s my full review of ‘Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreaming‘ by Stephen Laberge. This is a great book that covers almost every aspect of lucid dreaming, and it’s well worth a read.
This book has meant a lot to me, and I’ve read it a few times. So much so, that I’ve highlighted several parts of it. I find highlighting parts of books helps me to understand what I’m reading.
Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreaming
The book starts by talking about the authors experience of lucid dreaming, and gives an introduction to the ability and how it can be used. It shows you things like how the mind works in lucid dreams, and how it ties into social life as well.
It then quickly gets into practical tips and techniques that you can start using today. It shows you no-nonsense ways to induce lucid dreams. For this reason, it helped me to learn a lot about the subject when I was first starting out.
It contains lots of little ‘technique boxes’ showing practical things you can test out for yourself whenever you’re ready. I love these little boxes!
What You’ll Learn
Exploring the world of lucid dreams will teach you everything you need to know about lucidity. It teaches it from a practical viewpoint as I said, but the techniques you’ll learn are incredible.
I’m not just saying this either, there are so many really interesting techniques and ideas in here that I’d never heard of before reading it.
Things like –
- 61 point relaxation
- ‘Power of resolution’ technique
- ‘Reflection – Intention’ technique
- ‘Dream Lotus and flame’ technique
- And loads more..
I won’t go into any more because that’s for you to read when you buy the book, but there are some really interesting unheard of ideas in there, and they’re all great! Not only that, but it covers in detail the most common and well known techniques as well, such as –
- The Wake Induced Lucid Dream
- The Mnemonic Induced Lucid Dream
- The Wake Back To Bed
- Stabilization Techniques
- Overcoming Nightmares
- Problem Solving
- And much more.
Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreams is a manual for controlling your dreams. It dives deep into the dream science, and proven techniques and tricks that really do work.
Who’s it for?
Well, I would say it could be for beginners. It could also be for advanced lucid dreamers. It has a mixture of simple and complicated ideas, meaning whatever your skill level, this is the book for you. The chances are very high that you’ll pick this book up and learn at many new things. I learned several.
What’s bad about it?
The only thing I don’t particularly like about this book is the lack of diagrams and illustrations. This is something I’ve found to be an issue with most of the lucid dreaming books is that they lack pictures and diagrams.
For example, when it’s talking about a lucid dreaming technique or a reality check where you look at text and then look away, it wouldn’t hurt to have a little picture in there.
It’s not really a problem, as books are meant to be read, not looked at like pictures on Instagram. That being said, I think most of the lucid dreaming books could be improved a little with pictures.
Final review of ‘Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreams’
I love this book and I would suggest that anyone interested in lucidity and the art of controlling your dreams should at least read this once. It’s only a couple of dollars on Amazon now and it’s well worth that and many times more. It’s one of the best books on lucid dreaming for good reason.
It shows you many things that would otherwise take ages to work out for yourself, and there are large parts of the book that give you years of experience and knowledge in just a few hours of reading time. To get a copy of this book now, head on over to Amazon to check out the latest prices.
