Hi, you’ll find here a comprehensive, unabridged and entirely independent review of the materials available through the World Of Lucid Dreaming Fast Track.
I’ll cover all angles in appraising the World Of Lucid Dreaming and test the 60 day guarantee that promises a lucid dream for anyone that signs up. I’ll do the review here, and record the outcome of the test in the form of a 60 day dream journal that will form a separate page on this site. The journal will continue for as long as it takes for me to have three fully lucid dreams within the 60 day period. Testing the course should be fun, as I obviously have no way of knowing what may manifest during my dreams and will honestly record what arises. Hopefully the guarantee will not be required and at the end of the 60 days I’ll have mastered the technique of lucid dreaming; giving you all the evidence you need before grabbing yourself a copy of the World Of Lucid Dreaming Fast Track.

So, what exactly is included in the World Of Lucid Dreaming Fast Track.
Well, the guide is aimed at beginners who are looking to develop a better understanding of lucid dreaming, those people wishing to learn some techniques to aid the process, and people with an interest who would value a lifetime of updates and expansions aimed at keeping the course as current as possible. Everything you’ll need is included in the course, and a heap of stuff that hasn’t even been discovered yet. The lifetime of updates are impossible to value, but simply having the willingness to make this part of the package speaks volumes of the author’s commitment to the project.
The world Of Lucid Dreaming comes in three parts:
- A comprehensive 111 page e-book called The Art Of Lucid Dreaming which covers the history of dream research, techniques of lucid dreaming, practical lessons on dream control and a selection of challenges aimed at perfecting the technique.
- A second ebook called The Guided Meditation Handbook which instructs the reader in the link between meditation and lucid dreaming, offers guidance on night-time meditation and provides some visualisation and advanced dream programming advice.
- The Lucid Dreaming Hypnosis MP3. A recording designed to be listened to during the first stages of sleep and which it is claimed helps to induce lucid dreams and altered states of awareness.
Taken as a multi-layered introduction to lucid dreaming the material is in my view more than equal to the task. The books are informative, well structured, and well written. They are neither too academic nor too descriptive, and in fact showcase a nice balance between including recent research in neuroscience and the essential direct and practical instruction that the reader desires.
Believe me, countless shelves of books on dreams have been written from within the paradigms of the numerous psychoanalytic schools of thought, each dissecting and using the dreams recorded during analytic sessions to support a particular view of the world. They are interesting in their own way but not one of them would bring a person closer to actually mastering the techniques of lucid dreaming. Fortunately, for those wishing to achieve this end, The Art Of Lucid Dreaming does not fall into the trap of becoming a book of interpretations. Other than a glancing nod in the direction of Freud, Jung and dream symbolism The Art Of Lucid Dreaming remains unfalteringly focused on the subject of inducing lucid dreams.
I won’t go into the various techniques discussed in the first book of the World Of Lucid Dreaming, partly because they will be mentioned in the dream journal pages of the site, however suffice to say that the techniques are those developed in specialist dream labs and those that have been handed down from generation to generation by monks from within the Buddhist meditation tradition.
The book is well worth the read, and in fact rewards a second and third read, as it contains a rich blend of information and guidance. The only quibble I would have is with the illustrations, they were not particularly to my liking but were not intrusive to the read so their inclusion is hardly a problem.
I would therefore award the first part of the World of Lucid Dreaming a score of 8/10. More could have been included on recent lucid dream research, but there is plenty on the phases of sleep, brain imaging and the recording of electrical brain activity to partially satisfy my academic tastes. For the average reader I would say the author has got it just about right.
The second ebook in the World Of Lucid Dreaming package is the book on guided meditations. Now this is something I am less familiar with in a critical sense but have quite a lot of experience with as a layman. For several years of my life I lived on a barge and wiled away my hours in silent meditation. I practised a number of mantras and anapanna meditation, and even attended several Vipassana Buddhist retreats where absolute silence was maintained for the duration of the stay. During this time an unsteady mind was slowly stilled and I developed a state of consciousness that I unfortunately do not enjoy today. In fact the meditation was so intense that I actually experienced one of my most vividly numinous and luminous dreams during this time, and it is this in part that has inspired me to revisit the world of lucid dreaming.
The Guided Meditation Handbook and the Lucid Dreaming Hypnosis MP3 are companion pieces that work together to explain how meditation can be used to induce a lucid dream. The book is informative and offers a template text on which the lucid dreamer can create their own meditational landscape. The MP3 is a recording of a version of the guided meditation template with ambient music in the background but, if anything, I found it to be distracting rather than relaxing. I am not a great fan of guided meditation but the quality of the MP3 is high and therefore to be applauded if only on terms of its production values. Whether or not the recording has an effect on my dreams will be revealed within the dream journal.
I would score the second and third parts of the World Of Lucid Dreaming Fast Track a satisfactory 7/10.
In summation I would suggest that the World Of Lucid Dreaming Fast Track is well worth discovering. The lifetime update ensures that a supply of guided meditation MP3s and the latest scientific findings are regularly available and the 60 day guarantee offers the kind of safeguard that even the most cautious person would find hard to criticise.
