Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self
Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self.
While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to act and interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer - the apparent Inner Self - within the dream. At first this seemed shocking, even impossible, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Subliminal Self, the Center, the Internal Self-Helper in vague and theoretical ways. Waggoner came to realize, however, that aware interaction with the Inner Self was not only possible, but actual and highly inspiring. He concluded that while aware in the dream state, one has both a psychological tool and a platform from which to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man's psyche as well. Waggoner proposes 5 stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to a new level.
Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the definition of reality.

The person I need to thank the most is the person who chal- lenged me the most,
Ed Kellogg, Ph.D. More than any other lucid dreamer, Ed pushed me to search
deeper, examine lucid awareness more thoughtfully, and question the apparent
limits of lucidity. I found his expertise and insight, particularly in the areas of lucid
dream healing, mutual lucid dreaming, and lucid dreams of the deceased simply
unparalleled. This book, and chapters 13, 16, and 17 specifically, exist, in large ...
show that his theory contains fact. Like Hilgard's “hidden observer” in deep
hypnosis, lucid dreaming also shows an inner observer with whom the lucid
dreamer can relate. In part two, I explore the limits of awareness available to a
lucid dreamer. I show examples, both mine and others', of numerous conceptual
explorations as well as attempts to procure telepathic and precognitive
information while lucid. And, with the help of research from lucid dreamer Ed
Kellogg, Ph.D., I delve into ...
Fifth, as lucid dream researcher, Ed Kellogg, Ph.D., has described, the memory of
a long OBE experience seems crystal clear and easily recalled in a linear order,
while memory of an equally long lucid dream seems less detailed and more
difficult to recall precisely and in order.8 Many lucid dreamers, myself included,
report this hampered memory with long lucid dreams, though my long OBE
experiences seem comparatively clear, memorable, and detailed. Sixth, OBErs
usually report ...
