I have been testing my own lucid dreaming experiments that generate inspiration and ideas for my artistic expression, this one solely relies on incubating a dream situation which I have had great success with in the past.
Last night I successfully achieved some of the intentions I made before going to sleep, the main intention being that I find inspiring art books.
In my first dream I found myself in a Japanese landscape full of huts, once I became lucid I knew that one of these huts would be an art room which would contain inspiring work and books for me to look at.
The first hut I went into contained various canvases which contained amazing pictures but I was more interested in the books on the wall. I started looking through the covers and found two books by Dali and Bosch, but I became over excited to perceive the details in the books and started to lose lucidity.
In a later dream I was in a huge library and had to write a dissertation about art history (which is funny because I have started to broaden my knowledge of art history in real life) I then suddenly remembered to look for books of art which sparked my lucidity. I made the mistake of gathering books on a table without actually looking through them first. One book was on Da Vinci and had the title Hiddenism with sacred geometry on the cover. The mistake in this dream is that I started losing lucidity before looking through the books.
I have had better success in the past, I probably need to work on my stablising and prolonging lucidty techniques! but it was still a very inspiring night
