In 1867, Librairie d'Amyot, Paris published a book entitled 'Les Reves et les Moyens de les diriger: Observations Pratiques', written by the French Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys. It is the first serious book on dreamprocesses, and the ability to be conscious during dreaming is also described.
By lack of an integral English translation of this remarkable work, I decided to do it myself.
I want to emphasize that I am not a professional, and that nor the French nor the English language is my native one!
SO... NOW THERE IS A FREE OF CHARGE E-BOOK!
Anyone who becomes interested in dreams gets amazed at the number of books about it that appears, has appeared. One after the other seems to have the urge to publish a scripture on it. Usually it is a repeat of moves. One would expect to discern a solid theoretical model in this pile of literature. None is the case. Since the publication of my book about lucid dreaming in 1990, an 'industry' has arisen around this topic. For example, dream machines, nutritional supplements, training courses, dream catchers, seminars are promoted. Use your common sense, and don't give away your responsibility. Because when it comes to dreams, you are yourself the expert. In fact, you don't need anybody or anything for your dream journeys, only some basic knowledge how to handle things. I recommend:
1) Ann Faraday - 'Dream Power' and/or 'The Dream Game'.
