Did you know that in the same way humanity has made progress in the fields of medicine, transportation and communication that progress has been made in inducing and stabilizing different states of consciousness?
In the past it took a lot of time and effort to gain success in the practice of lucid dreaming. These days, thanks to research in modern dream laboratories in the USA and Europe, and thanks to the invention of state-of-the-art lucid dreaming devices, the path to lucid dreaming is faster and easier than ever before.
Some years ago two devices, the DreamLight and the NovaDreamer were created and marketed in the USA. Both used advanced technology to help their users achieve lucid dreams. These devices sold for anywhere from US $700-$1000. At the present time, manufacture of both devices has been discontinued.
But now a similar (and in some ways superior) device has been produced in Europe, costing just 147 Euro. This new device, the REM-Dreamer, features new technology not available in the NovaDreamer to help you recognize and stabilize lucidity in your dreams. REM-Dreamer also contains LCD display, which was not available in the NovaDreamer. Thanks to LCD display working with the REM-Dreamer is very easy, much easier than with the NovaDreamer.
The REM-Dreamer uses infrared sensors to detect when you are in REM (dreaming) sleep. At that point the REM-Dreamer gives you sound and light cues (beeps and flashing lights) to remind you that you are dreaming. Thus, external world stimuli are transferred to the world of your dreams, and it becomes easy to achieve lucidity.
In their work in dream laboratories researchers discovered that external world stimuli reach the dreaming mind but are "reinterpreted" within dreams in order to enable the dreamer to remain asleep. In this way the dreamer is protected from frequent awakenings.
For example, if a dreamer's face is sprinkled with water when he or she enters REM sleep, the dreamer might report rain in their dream. Or, if a dreamer is exposed to perfume, the dream might include a dancing partner and a ball.
The REM-Dreamer uses this technique of reinterpretation by providing the dreamer's mind with preset visual and/or audio cues (flashes and beeps) which help the dreamer understand that they are dreaming. For instance, when the REM-Dreamer displays a flashing light the dreamer may dream of sunlight reflecting in a window pane, an ambulance with its lights flashing, or a camera's flash. The dreamer learns to recognize these signs in dreams, and these signs become the dreamer's gateway to lucidity.
The REM-Dreamer now features a new method of inducing lucid dreams. Our newest model enables two-way communication between the sleeping person and the REM-Dreamer. Researchers have confirmed that, while sleeping and dreaming, people move their eyes in the same directions that they do in their dreams. This fact helped inspire the creation of the TWC (Two-Way-Communication) technology. The TWC technology enables communication between the REM-Dreamer and the sleeping person during the dreaming state.
For instance, when the TWC feature is turned on the REM-Dreamer begins to generate a series of cues of increasing intensity when it senses that dreaming has begun. When the level of these cues has increased sufficiently to reach the dreaming mind the dreamer has the option of signaling back to the REM-Dreamer by moving his or her eyes in a predetermined manner (within the dream state) and, on sensing that movement, the REM-Dreamer will stop generating cues.
When the TWC feature is turned off the intensity of the cues is pre-selected by the user and does not change throughout the night. For some users, this meant that the intensity of the cues was too weak to reach the mind, or too strong, resulting in the dreamer being awakened.
When the TWC feature is turned on the intensity of the cues can be adjusted from the dream. Thus, the chances of lucid dreaming are increased much.
The REM-Dreamer is the first lucid dream induction device in the world, which uses this technique and technology. In addition, the newest REM-Dreamer still includes the simple and easy-to-use settings of inducing lucid dreaming without TWC. Both methods can be used.
The REM-Dreamer can enhance dream recall and shorten the time needed to learn lucid dreaming. Many people have used the REM-Dreamer as their primary method to learn lucid dreaming. As their abilities in lucid dreaming increase, the TWC technology can be utilized to enhance and deepen the lucid dream state.
The REM-Dreamer kit comes with a very comfortable sleeping mask with a small printed circuit board tucked inside that detects REM sleep, giving cues in the form of flashes or beeps.
The REM-Dreamer board includes LCD display, which allows the user to adjust all settings very easily. The user can use any of several simple presets, or can customize the number of sounds and light flashes, their volume and brilliance, frequency per second, and duration. In addition, the REM sensor can be set to accurately track your personal REM eyeball movement. The device comes with the user's manual (36 small pages).
The REM-Dreamer has given many people the opportunity to experience lucid dreaming, and the opportunity to use this natural state of consciousness to program their subconscious, influence their behavior, explore the world of the mind, and work with habits of body and mind, depending on their own needs and desires.
The REM-Dreamer is available for just 147 Euro (free shipping). We post by international registered airmail. It is usually 3-12 business days.
