Salvador Dalí in collaboration with Walt Disney.
Did you know that Salvador Dali worked on an animated film for Walt Disney? The film Destino was started in 1946 but never finished by Dali. It was only in the last few years that Walt’s grandson became involved and brought it to completion. It was released on a DVDs special features in 2010. Watch by clicking: http://youtu.be/1GFkN4deuZU
Q:Hypnosis anon here! I recorded a guided fantasy script for relaxation and then a script for dream recall using Strategic Self Hypnosis by Roger A Strauss and Instant Self Hypnosis by Forbes Robbins Blair. I listened to it before going to bed, then used the intention "I will have total and amazing recall of my dreams." It worked really well! These past two nights I filled about 1/8 of a page of my dream journal, but with hypnosis I filled 4+ pages with vivid detail. Would definitely recommend!
Wow! That’s great! We’re glad to hear it worked so well. We’re definitely gonna have to give this a try. Thanks for letting us know how it went.
Q:Hi! I'm pretty new to lucid dreaming and I was having some trouble with intentions.However, hypnotism for relaxing/goals has worked for me in the past. I was wondering if you had any recommendations for combining hypnotism with dream recall and having lucid dreams? As in, any specific scripts or strategies I could follow? I have a hypnotism book with a script for dream recall and lucid dreaming, which I'm planning to use, but I would appreciate deeper insight and recommendations!
Intentions can definitely be tricky, especially with sooooo many distractions in our world. One of the ways we like to look at setting an intention, is to naturally “program” our brains. If we’re setting an intention to have better dream recall, we’re essentially telling our brain, that it needs to do a better job in remembering our dreams. If we were a programmer of sorts, we would be “writing some code” for our brain to carry out.
Now we haven’t really had any experience with hypnotism, but how you’re describing it, definitely makes it seem like it could assist with lucid dreaming. If hypnotism is there to first relax your brain and then focus it on a specific action, we don’t see why the specific action couldn’t be lucid dreaming.
If your book has a script for lucid dreaming, definitely go for it. And if you get a chance, please write back to us and let us know how it went.
Thanks for writing in!
We got a new video for you all! In fact it’s two videos!
It’s a brand new experiment that we’re trying out to see if watching a particular video during a WBTB will help induce a more vivid lucid dream. Check it out part 1 here:

Q:Loved your book, Why is this stuff not on TV? The whole world should know about lucid's. When is your next one due out? I just got today Stephen LaBerge's, and Robert Waggoner's as well. I think people wouldn't turn to drugs if they knew about this first. From the book store not available in the library. That I found so surprising. My Mother is getting The Field Guide. I've gone on so much about it. Love you guys!!
Thank you so much! It definitely should be on TV! The lucid dreaming community is getting bigger and bigger everyday and it has started to weave it’s way into pop culture. Though we’re not fully there yet, hopefully a day will come where more folks are talking about lucid dreaming in the same way they talk about what they did over the weekend.
LaBerge and Waggoner always put out excellent stuff. Some of the OGs of the modern lucid dreaming community.
We agree. While lucid dreaming can’t solve all the troubles in the world, we feel that it can have a truly positive impact on millions. It could help people deal with anxieties and depression (which sometimes steer folks towards drugs) as well as assist in over coming nightmares.
That’s awesome that your mom is getting the book! Thanks for being a fan! Love ya!
