      Got my book! It made it all the way to South Africa. Have been keeping a dream journal for about a week now and the dreams are definitely becoming more vivid and easier to remember. No lucidity yet, but all in good time. Thanks for the great work, guys!

      Hi there! I received my book -- thank you! However, I do have a question. I ordered the hardcover edition and it said it is supposed to come with a "compass totem." What exactly is that, and has it already shipped or is it supposed to be coming later? Because the only thing I've received is the book and I was expecting something else...

    5. Thomas 2-time creator on July 3, 2012

      @ Ernesto: Alright, Congratulations! So you were able to stabilize the dream by saying "stabilize" or by doing other stabilization techniques? How incredible was being lucid? After getting lucid just once, you know how profound these experiences can be. I'm sure this is only the beginning of many lucid adventures for you. Congrats Ernesto!

    6. Ernesto Provencio on July 2, 2012

      Forgot to ask, when is the social web site going live? Loved to share ideas and questions with the lucid community of Oneironauts.

    7. Ernesto Provencio on July 2, 2012

      I had a Lucid dream last night! (this morning) - even got to use "stabilize" a few times before I lost control. It was amazing and I remember how odd it was to ask myself if I was dreaming and become lucid when the answer was "yes, I am dreaming." wake back to bed didn't quite work... this time.

      So I guess this means we get to bug you with the second pertinent question.

      When is the site going to be up? :)

    27. Thomas 2-time creator on April 12, 2012

      Hey you fabulous lucid dreamers! The book is finally out of our hands and we are waiting for over 1000 books to arrive on our doorstep. (Wonder what a box of 1000 books will look like...) We thank you so much for your patience, and are so excited for you to receive it. The book looks great and we're so happy with it. We will take some pictures as soon as this large box arrives and send it out.

      If you have changed addresses recently please let us know. If you have already sent us your new address no need to send us another email, we modified your address and you're good to go!

      If you haven't had a lucid dream before, we're pretty confident that after reading the book your mind will change on how simple and easy it can be. We can't wait to hear all of your stories and experiences!

    32. Andrew C on November 26, 2011

      Still on track?

    33. Thomas 2-time creator on October 3, 2011

      For those of you who may be moving to a different address, hold off on sending any updated information. Before we send the book out, we'll make sure to ask everyone for their final address. Thanks!

    34. Michell Green on October 2, 2011

      As it looks like from your last Update that you won't be shipping until the end of the year or start of next year, how do I go about updating my shipping address? I'm not sure if I'm going to be at the original address I used for much longer. And I'm sure I will not be the only one in this situation...

    39. Michael McGregor on July 14, 2011

      beast of a survey finally completed. really psyched for this, but bummed i wasnt able to grip a totem at the film fest....i was stuck in the DJ tower

    40. Ernesto Provencio on July 13, 2011

      I can't wait for more! I started practicing waking up properly and it really improved my recall dramatically. I want to get a dream journal started and I found this other project that makes custom bound journals. Maybe we Oneironauts can vote them to include a map of the lucid dream state? Check them out

      Hello there. I tried to fill in the Reward Survey, but without success. I always get the message "error: Please enter a response for all questions.", no matter whether I just fill in my address, or all the additional answers below that.

    42. Thomas 2-time creator on July 5, 2011

      While we might not be able to film at the festival, we will definitely be taking pictures. We will also be writing up a post about the experience as well as out interaction with other lucid dreamers (or those who want to lucid dream).

    43. Steven Garcia on June 30, 2011

      For the ppl not able to make it to the KS festival in NY can you post a update video of ppl that your helping in their journey of lucid dreaming. so we backers not in NY aren't missing out?

    44. Espen Mathisen on June 22, 2011

      I also read what you said about the shipping, so I threw in a "couple" of extra dollars. Let me know if it's not enough!

    45. Espen Mathisen on June 22, 2011

      Got kind of nervous when I got the reminder e-mail, but I just decided to go for it. Wouldn't get this chance again. Now a happy and excited backer!

    46. Steven Garcia on June 13, 2011

      one way i always have dreams is sleeping on a uncomfortable area.. the floor or the couch that isnt comfort try it out and having a cold room
