How Lucid Dreaming Can Change Your Life | Charlie Morley
“Lucid dreaming is about making friends with the subconscious mind.”
Who here has ever had a dream where you go, “aha! I’m dreaming!” while you were actually dreaming? Or have you ever had a nightmare where you’ve gone, “I’ve gotta wake up!”? If you’ve experienced one or both, then congratulations! You were lucid dreaming.
Dreaming lucidly is essentially experiencing the most powerful VR stimulation ever. Imagine Ready Player One meets Inception.
With lucid dreaming, you’re in a 3D projection of your subconscious mind. You can literally choose what you want to do in it. Be it training to be a better athlete, overcoming a phobia, or even finding answers to life questions, lucid dreaming is a powerful tool to use to enhance your life.
Now, while Steven Kotler talks about how to enhance your life during your waking state (a.k.a., the two-thirds of your existence), bestselling author and lucid dreaming teacher Charlie Morley delves into the other one-third － the sleeping state. In this inspiring podcast episode, you’ll learn a great thing or two from Charlie about what lucid dreams are and how to safely experience them.
Our Favorite Moment: Charlie’s comparison of how controlling lucid dreaming is like a sailor trying to control the sea.
How To Get Everything You Want By Asking The Right Questions | Mark Victor and Crystal Hansen
“Once you get the right question and you go in the right direction, you go fast.”
The names, Mark Victor and Crystal Hansen may not ring a bell, but for many of us, their work was a big part of our childhoods in the 90s, inspiring self-love and personal growth through motivational stories and essays. Mark co-created the popular heartwarming book series, ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul.’
Fast forward to 2020 with the release of the new book, ‘ASK! The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny,’ co-written by both Mark and Crystal.
It’s one thing to design and manifest your dream life. Asking the right questions in order to live it is another. After all, the Bible verse does say, “ask and you shall receive.” But are you asking the right questions?
In this Superhumans At Work episode, the Hansens sit down with host Jason Campbell to take a closer look at the power behind asking the right questions and giving yourself permission to want it.
If you’re a huge fan of the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series or if you’re asking and not receiving, it’s time to plug in your earphones and crank up the volume because the Hansens are about to tell you how to master the art of asking questions.
Our Favorite Moment: Mark shares a story of when he and Jack Canfield wrote ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’, the Universe decided to test them.
