Lucid Dreaming Programzzz.....

The Lucid Dreamer Assistant: The author describes his program as follows: Lucid Dreamer Assistant (freeware) - Darius Heydarpour/Datamind Works on every IBM compatible PC with any type of videocard/processor ..

LDA is a tool which you 'run' on your PC after waking up earlier than usual. It contains exercises, based on several 'reality checking' techniques, which you do for aprox. 10-30 minutes. After that you return to bed and fall asleep. If all goes well you will find yourself sitting behind your PC running the 'dream-version' of LDA. But.. the exercises will fail to work properly, your monitor flashes on and off, words morph into other words, etc.. and suddenly you realize.. I am dreaming !

my review: I wasn't too impressed with this one, but maybe you'll like it, and it IS free  :)

Click here to download The Lucid Dreaming Assistant (about 55K)

Lucid Dreamer: a reality check reminder...

The version here is 1.02. The program uses your PC to emit a sound to cue you to do a reality check.

CHANGES SINCE VERSION 1.01: A few bug fixes and improvements.

Brainwave-Related Programzzz......

CoolEdit:  I have been experimenting with the Cool Edit program for about a year.  It is a sound recording/editing program that you can download for free on the internet, and I believe that it is a valuable tool which can be used to alter one's state of mind, literally, by entraining one's brainwaves to a particular frequency.

for my review of CoolEdit and Instructions for using it, click here

To download Cool Edit or for more information about it ,click here 

The Brainwave Generator.  This is a program that has an assortment of pre-set brainwave frequencies for you to choose from: Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta....and listening to them is as easy as pressing a button, and having some headphones.  Not as advanced and individualized as CoolEdit but definitely easier.  

my personal review: I personally don't like the Brainwave Generator compared to using CoolEdit because the tones seem a little grating and too overpowering, there's a limited selection of pre-sets, and most importantly if you don't purchase it you can't listen to them for longer than fiftenn minutes ata time, I believe.  They limit the shareware program hoping you'll by it.  It's worth downloading and checking out, but for a real program I suggest using CoolEdit, but you be the judge...

To download The Brainwave Generator for free, click here

the Binaural Beat Creator:  Just recently, The Monroe Institute has a free program available to create your own binaural beats. I am sure it is very similar to CoolEdit and I have not yet used it, but I would bet that it is a good program, considering the source.

to go to the page to download or get more info on this program, click here

The Flasher Brainwave Stimulator:     Another free download is that uses the same principle of entrainment but used light flashes instead of binaural beats.  By flashing light at different rates, those corresponding to particular frequencies, your brain will synchronize its brainwaves due to photic entrainment (light ).  People who have a history of epilepsy should not use this product because the flashes may zap you into a seizure, but for the majority of people it is perfectly safe.  

..."Flasher allows the user to experiment with brainwave stimulation. Select flash rate, color and pattern to induce alpha, theta, or delta brainwave stimulation. Put on some mood music, turn off the lights, close your eyes and enjoy! You should be able to perceive the pulses through closed eyelids."

Dream Journal Software...

DreamUp version 2.0:

A program that allows you to record, catalog, analyze, and work with your dreams.

Subliminal messagezzz.......

MindPower: This program allows you to type yourself a message of affirmation and then program how often and how long it flashes on your screen.  Whether you are using a text, word-processer, or some other applications, it will flash your message so it can be perceived consciously or subconsciously.

To go to the page to download MindPower 

MindPipe:  This program flashes subliminal messages on your computer screen.  The message appear as brief flashes but may help engrain the idea into your subconscious.

..."A simple subliminal message flasher for self improvement. MindPipe is named for its function: it acts as a pipeline into your subconscious mind. It flashes a set of messages on the screen every few seconds, too fast for your conscious mind to read. But, as the theory goes, your subconscious mind sees the brief messages long enough to absorb them, maybe in bits and pieces at a time but with repetition and time they become part of your subconscious. You can include your own messages as well."

my review: I had little success running this just didn't work?!?!? but maybe it isn't for PCs???

Beyond the Illusion Archives:

a HUGE archive containing 26,000 downloadable files including hundreds of files related to Altered States of Consciousness: dreams, mind-related, subliminals, brainwaves, etc...

The only problem is that there is little or non descriptions of the files aside from their names so it is quite difficult to get idea of what the file or program actually is or does, but there are lotzzz of good ones that I have noticed.
