Thanks. They are the best and most
complete set of instructions
I have seen and will help me greatly.

I am associated
with a group of people that formerly were associated
with Carlos Castaneda's Tensegrity group. I think what
you have written here in your manual is much more concise
and clearer than what Carlos ever wrote. Your material
seems to be much more straight-forward. Had we had your
insight into lucid dreaming six years ago I would probably
be a much better dreamer today. But that was yesterday,
so today we move on. Let's talk. I think I can probably
sell your book to many old members of the Castaneda
group. Some already are interested.
just finished reading your book and I found it great!
What is incredible is that, though I already knew many
of the informations in it, it is as if now I'm learning
these things .Plus there's a lot of great stuff I didn't
find elsewhere.I collected a lot of informations over
the internet but I couldn' get a clear idea of the whole
process.Well, that's just what I found in your book
; different informations , different traditions (shamanic,
scientific...) are all put toghether completing each
other.Now I feel ready to begin working methodically
on lucid dreaming.
topic that I found absolutely life-changing ,aside from
its benefits for LD, is the mindfulness/self observation/lucid
waking area.I'd like to study it more in depht but on
the bibliography I didn't find anything regarding this
(maybe something about Gurdjieff ?),can you give me
some more precise informations ( books, websites...)?
I have to thank you once again for sending the book
before receiving the money (you might say it' s just
a matter of few dollars; well, I think few people would
have done the same). So tell me good luck
I'm going to begin my journey! : )
As I have results I'll let you know.

had my first lucid dream since I started to practice
on having them today! I have only been keeping my dream
journal for two days only, so I am VERY pleased with
this. It may have something to do with that I've had
lucid dreams about two times before or something. Maybe
this have strenghten my believes that it's not impossible.
This was many years ago, BTW.
I had those first two lucid dreams they were very short
because I was not very well educated in how to maintain
lucidity then. I didn't even know the term, lucid-dreams,
back then. When I heard about lucid dreams a while ago,
I thought it was just some new-age kind of thing (didn't
know I had experienced it myself!).
a week ago, I decided to look what lucid dreams were
all about, and I realized that this was something to
begin developing (since I remembered how exiting my
first one was).
want to thank you alot, Bird, for your splendid help,
both with the introduction and the Six Basic Stepzzz
(it must have helped alot, since I haven't had a lucid
dream in years, and because I had one only two
days after beginning to follow your advices!!!).
lucid dream was alot different that the others I've
had before too, because I knew what to do to maintain
lucid for a longer time. For example, I told myself
to calm down. I guess that it also was important to
have a goal (which was flying). :). One of the best
experiences I've had for a long time I may add!!! :)
and thanks again Bird!
i decided to try bird's method of getting up and going
back to sleep yesterday, and it worked! im excited about
it since i haven't had a lucid dream in well over a
year. i began with an 8-hour sleep. then I woke up for
an hour and went back to sleep for an hour. in that
hour of sleep my dream flowed into a deep level of awareness
and peaked out when i spoke aloud "im lucid" and the
sound of my own voice called me out of my dream. i suggest
this method to EVERYONE!
a beautiful day to all, doug
imagine myself becoming weightless (like in the manual)
and take off gleefully to a beautiful glass-domed environment.
Iím flying along having a great time and decide to notice
my method of flight as discussed in the L.D. manual.
As soon as I start thinking about it, I stop flying
naturally and start doing the breaststroke! I wake up
(for real), but am determined to return to the lucid
flying dream. I go back to bed and do the induction
(one Iím dreaming, two Iím dreaming) and boom! Iím back
flying in the same domed environment as before (first
time Iíve been able to return!) My visuals start to
get freaky. I try to remember Marcís suggestions (speed/altitude
ratio adjustment, the commands to stabilize visuals,
etc.) The only thing I can remember is ďHeighten lucidity
now!Ē For a brief second before waking, I was aware
of heightened lucidity but my speed/altitude ratio was
so screwed up my brain couldnít handle it. Anyway, Marc,
Iím here to report some firsts and a somewhat qualified
success within 3 weeks of reading your book."

e-mail is to thank you....
tell you why...
been looking for obe's and lucid dreaming info about
two years on the web, collecting a lot of stuff...,
but nothing seemed to work. I continued trying
but with no results. I really don't know why.
I had read Stephen LaBerge's Exploring the world of
lucid dreaming but tried everything. So that night I
decide to follow your advice. And the main one that
caught my attention was: "YOU HAVE TO GET OUT OF YOUR
BED!!!" when you wake up in the middle of the night.
let's do it! At this very night I had two lucid states
during my Dreams!!!! They were short but clear. Undoubtely
your suggestion(s) worked for me at that time. I was
more pacified, my heart was not bleeding so much anymore
and it happened!!!!
I had again two short LD in the middle of the night
and I had about 6 in the last 10 days.... Great isn't
it? -Now I'm trying to stabilize (sp?) in the lucid
state and then go OBE.
the results are amazing!!!!
day, during all the ocasions I can, I've been making
reality tests - every day, all day.... Even now: Am
I dreaming I'm writing this e-mail to you? Are the letters
stable? Is ther anything impossible happening? etc etc...)
The feeling is that it will be no more difficult to
become lucid. The point now is how to get stable..-I'm
also following your suggestions regarding this point...-I'm
pretty sure I'll succed - I'm certain....
I had some contacts with my wife who recently passed
away where she told me it was lacking very little to
me to get "there"... we have a lot of work to do together...
as we always did... helping people who is looking for
help.... This was the way we found each other here,
got married and worked together for about 21 years of
the happiest life you can imagine until she passed away...
now we're beginning again....
THANK YOU... THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTITUDE of sharing
your experience and to motivate others to try it with
themselves... Part of my happiness today and while looking
to the future is due the existence of you....
and Terezinha ....
