Best Lucid Dreaming Books

Updated on December 11, 2013

The Top Books On Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming has been practiced by Zen masters, monks, shamans and other spiritually inclined people for centuries. And it has been randomly "happening" to regular folks like you and me as well.

The main difference is that under normal circumstances we can't control WHEN lucidity occurs in our dreams and HOW to make it happen. Not unless we study the proper lucid dreaming techniques.

There are countless lucid dream books these days to read and learn from, but let's face it, who has the time to read all that. Especially with the fast moving life where we are busy right until we go to sleep, we should read only what is relevant to our pursuit of achieving lucid dreams without any fluff and unneeded extras.

This is why I have put together for you a list of the best lucid dreaming books that will teach you how to reach a state of being awake (in mind only) and lucid during your dreams.

This will in turn help you do anything YOU want in your dreams, meet anyone you want, have fun, explore, get creative, create new works of art and literacy. The dreamworld is now yours to explore!

Maybe the most authoritative work on lucid dreaming, this book by Robert Waggoner is the dreams account of an extremely well versed lucid dreamer who really knows what he's talking about.

If you've ever been interested in recall during your dreams that you are in fact dreaming, this book should get your juices flowing and your energy channeled in the right direction. Highly recommended.

Stephen LaBerge

Stephen Laberge Lucid Dreaming is probably the best work on the subject ever. He has written the most authoritative book on the subject of lucid dreaming and he is the one who coined the terms WILD Lucid Dreaming (WILD - Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming), which stands for getting to a dream state and lucid without first falling asleep.

WILD has truly revolutionized the entire lucid dreaming world and ever since he read this book, more and more people have been achieving WILD states than ever.

You can use lucid dreaming to improve the quality of your waking life.

Thomas Yuschak

If you're already somewhat versed in lucid dreaming, this book takes it to another level. Did you know that there are natural supplements that help with achieving lucid dreams easier? It's all in the brain chemistry and Thomas Yuschak shows you in this book how to make the best out of your dreaming nights.

Becoming lucid when dreaming is not all that difficult - and if it is, then it can be easily helped.

Especially recommended for those who have only sporadic lucid dreams, but they can't have them or control them at will.

Active Dreaming: Journeying Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom

Robert Moss

Great book filled with inspiring stories, Active Dreaming is all about learning how to "community dream", to bring out your consciousness in the dream group. Full with exercises to practice, it is an invaluable source for anyone wanting to learn to lucid dream.

I like the way he puts it in his book - basically he says that we don't have to go to sleep and then become conscious during dreaming - instead we can enter lucidity right from the start, at a state that is between waking consciousness and sleep. It's interesting because this is one of the ways to also induce astral projection - another very similar technique that I am discussing elsewhere on my pages.

The Art Of Dreaming

Carlos Castaneda

Carlos Castaneda is invariably one of the most discussed writers and spiritual teachers of our times. He is also one of the most controversial ones. He was way ahead of time in his concepts and philosophy and he has, single-handedly, introduced more fundamental concepts into the contemporary mainstream of shamanic studies than anyone else I know.

This book is a classic on lucid dreaming, one that every serious student or anyone interested in the subject should read. While the book does read like a fiction (which is one of its strong points when it comes to lots of people reading it, it does have, in fact, a lot of real valid material that can be used in dreamwork.

Michelle Bellanger

This is a book I've just finished recently and initially I was not sure it was about lucid dreaming at all. In fact, even now I'm not quite sure, simply because it is so much more than that. Here lucid dreaming is a prerequisite for dreamwalking - for entering other people's dreams. The book touches on lucid dreaming, astral projection and even near death experiences.

It is full with the author's stories of how she grow up in an environment that fostered her love for the occult, and she gives lots of examples on how she learned dreamwalking.

A fascinating story, one that anyone interested in lucid dreaming, astral projection or the occult in general should read.

      @Linda BookLady: That's exactly the right way to go about it. With reading books on the topic you infuse your mind with this so it concentrates on this very topic right from the start. I also have a dream journal that I use every time I wake up in the middle of the night and recall my dream, which I jot down to not forget.

      I have Stephen LaBerge's book, "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming" - but would like to read the others you featured here. I find that my dream recall increases when I (1) read a dream book prior to sleeping, and (2) write down all dream memories every morning.

      I just heard of Stephen LeBerge today on NPR: the interview awoke a sleeping interest in lucid dreaming I have. (Sorry couldn't resist) Pinned to my "Dreams" board.
