“Lucid Dreams and Consciousness”
“If you were to say, I want to become a lucid dreamer, how should I go about it? The first lesson in there is about how you develop dream recall. After you’ve got a sufficient level of dream recall you start studying your dreams for the dream signs; what’s dream-like about them? You then start doing exercises that use your focus in your mind on your typical dream content, becoming more reflective and developing your ability to have specific intentions that you carry out in the future and so on.”
This is a program I recently facilitated at the Pillar Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Lucid dreaming may have a very significant role in the future awakening of consciousness. To dream lucidly simply means an awareness while dreaming that you are dreaming. The "flying dream" is an a type of lucid dream. The Awareness and the dream itself are the two polarity players. Similarly, in waking life, awareness (the recognition of "I am") and the external reality form the polarity. These relationships are basic to the meaning of consciousness, and at the individual level involve nothing more than an intention and persistence!! Stephen LaBerge is a pioneer in this field, and other names are Robert Waggoner and Robert Moss. These persons and their works are easily found on the internet...
