The promise and peril of fear, how to work with it, and how to use it for growth and more.

In this interview with Clare Johnson PhD, reknowned lucid dream author and researcher, Andrew and Clare explore a deep dive into the world of lucidity. This wide-ranging conversation begins with a close look at the promise and peril of fear, how to work with it, and how to use it for growth. The discussion then moves into a look at dream sex, dream violence, and a “code of ethics” in terms of how to relate to dream characters – which are essentially aspects of your own mind. Dreams are the “children” of your mind, treat them with love.

Clare then shares her remarkable experiences with lucidity in deep dreamless sleep, and the luminosity that shines below all dreams. She advises us to look for the beauty and luminosity in our dreams and in our life, and to move towards that light. The conversation then turns to a discussion of how lucid dreaming not only leads to lucid living, but to lucid dying. The nocturnal practices have removed all fear of death for Clare, and she shares why. This interview with Clare Johnson closes with a look at how to work with discouragement, and Clare’s “go-to” methods for inducing lucidity. Dr. Johnson is a shining star in the world of lucid dreaming, and this conversation will show you why.
