The best books about lucid dreaming on Amazon, right now in 2016.
Amazon is my favorite place to buy books on all topics but they have a great selection of lucid dreaming books. If you’re looking to increase your knowledge, or just read about lucid dreaming from other authors, then books are a great way to do it.
I have my own range of books on Amazon, by the way.
Books are the thoughts experiences and teachings of a person drilled down into an easy to read (most of the time) collection of interesting pieces of paper. I’ve learned a lot about what I know through books, specially regarding lucid dreaming. Here we go!
1 – Dreams Of Awakening
Dreams of awakening was written by Charlie Morley. I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but the cover art on this one is incredible!
The content is GREAT as well. Best of both worlds, and looks great on your bookshelf. Anyway, that’s beside the point. The book shows various lucid techniques and ideas. It shows you lots of little stories and tips. It’s very personal but at the same time informative.
It has little ‘Charlie Says’ boxes, which is where the author Charlie gives you little tips relating to the current subject or technique. It makes it more personal, and when I eventually write a paperback lucid dreaming book, it’s probably the same sort of style I’d write it in when I bring out a paperback.
Great read, and much like ‘Exploring the world of lucid dreams‘ (Stephen Laberge), it explains techniques in a simple and easy to understand way. That being said, it’s not the same as Stephen Laberges book, and there are unique insights to be gained from both of them. Check it out here.
But what about supplements? What about using substances to induce lucid dreams.. Well there’s a book for that as well. Introducing..
2 – Advanced Lucid Dreaming (The Power Of Supplements)
This book goes into detail about the way you can supplements for lucid dreaming. It explains the science behind it, and how you can get started without downing LOADS of pills! There are just a few select supplements you can start with, and then try other ones as you see fit and when you feel ready. You can get it here.
This is the only book I’ve seen so far that focused this much on supplements. Other books mention them and explain how you can use them but THIS book really dives deep and shows you how you can combine different types of supplements to get the best results, and how they actually work. If you’re into advanced stuff, this is WELL worth a read.
3 – Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreaming
This book is a practical guide. Written by Stephen Laberge, it teaches you how to physically have a lucid dream in a way that isn’t confusing or boring. It shows you exactly how to do various techniques, and this book has a collection of the most unusual AND most common techniques.
It teaches the basics, the most commonly known techniques but it also goes into some other techniques that I’m sure you’ve never heard of. Small techniques for meditation and playing with hypnagogic imagery. This is a lucid dreaming book well worth having on your bookshelf!
I actually have a full book review of this one if you’re interested.
4 – Lucid Dreaming (Gateway To The Inner Self)
Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the inner self is a fantastic read. It teaches about lucid dreaming in a way that goes beyond the normal ‘control your dreams and fly around having fun’ sort of thinking. It’s advanced, and I LOVE It for it!
It goes beyond that and into the realm of uncovering our inner consciousness, talking to the dream and interacting with a consciousness greater than our own. It teaches how to do all of this, combined with some of the most interesting lucid stories and experiences I’ve ever heard. Learn more here.
5 – A Field Guide To Lucid Dreaming
This book is beautiful. started by a crowdfunding campaign which was wildly successful on kickstarter, this lovely little book was born. I love the cover, and the contents are great. It explains lucid dreaming in a way that isn’t confusing, which is where a lot of books fail these days.
It explains nightmares in a clear and helpful way, and shows you how you can stop having them by learning a few basic lucid dreaming ideas. It opens potentially everyone up to the idea of lucid dreaming, and that’s always a good thing. Learn more here.
What is the BEST lucid dreaming book?
To be honest, I don’t think there can be a ‘best’ one. They all talk about different aspects of the subject, and lucid dreaming is one of those things that can always be experienced and looked at in a new way. There will always be a new technique, or a new way of doing things that we need to know about.
It’s also always interesting and useful to read about the various lucid dreaming author’s experiences, because by understanding how others lucid dream, we can better understand how we lucid dream. In the process we can learn more about what’s possible, and what ideas are fun or worth trying out.
If you’re interested, I also have a handful of books on lucid dreaming available on Amazon.
