What is a Lucid Dream?

During lucid dreams, it is often possible to exert conscious control over the dream characters and environment, as well as to perform otherwise physically impossible feats.” (wikipedia)

Infinity Software for Lucid Dreaming

Download: Click Here to Download!

DreamPort Home Page
Official Description:

“The purpose of Infinity is basically to allow the user to have lucid dreams in the time frame of 1 to 2 weeks. The idea is for people to use this to get out of dry-spells or for new-comers to use this to have their first lucid dream. ”

“It’s a day to day plan where you basically keep adding on more and more activities to a routine that you establish. The idea is to put your mind on over-load so that you have a lucid dream no matter what. By no means will this program give you the ability to lucid dream at will; however, it might put you in the right direction. By using this training software to have much needed lucid dreams, you’ll obtain more motivation and will be much more fit to persue the art of lucid dreaming on your own. Think of this as a powerful kickstart to get you going.”

Note: The Goods must be installed on your computer for Infinity and Paradiso to work. You only need to install it once. You need to have Adobe Flash Player.

DreamPort Home Page
Official Description:

“Have you ever wanted to construct your own dreamscape, full of anonymous objects and pleasures all from your choosing? Not only that, but would you want to have that dreamscape appear whenever you wanted to, whether you were lucid or not? Well, I’m hear to tell you that this task is not an impossible one, but rather a simple and fun one.

As more and more lucid dreamers enter this realm of dreamscape creation, many others are desiring the same satisfaction of being able to construct their own world. The problem is, many don’t know how, or where to start. Thus, I’ve created Paradiso, which provides descriptions, techniques, and advice on how to make all of this possible, leaving the user with one awesome result.

With this, you can create your very own extensive environment, and you can put anything you want in it. You could even put dream characters and signs up that have the sole purpose to tell you that you are lucid. Start the dream out in this environment all the time, then you can guarantee paradise and lucidity right from the beginning!”

Lucid Warp

Download: Click Here to Download!

DreamPort Home Page
Official Description:

Lucid Warp is a seven day training course that transforms you and your mind to allow yourself to Lucid Dream at will. Many people have called this idea the “Holy Grail” of Lucid Dreaming, and to be honest with you, it is.

You learn to believe and expect various things to happen by experimenting each day with new things. Every day builds up on top of the other, and end up giving you the ultimate power to lucid dream. You will also figure out how to control your mind, rather than have your mind control you, which can help you in so many things other than lucid dreaming.

You know what the best part about all of this is? It is that you only have to do this method ONCE. After that, as long as you keep the same state of mind as you did during the 7 Days, you will have a very successful lucid dreaming career; you could even lucid dream every single night if you wanted to!

During this course, all you have to do is believe, and you will be able to accomplish anything you set your eyes on.”

YAD Home Page
Official Description:

“Hi I made this silly little program I call YAD ( You Are Dreaming ) for Windows-XP. When you run it, you will see the words “You are dreaming” moving across the screen, it’s small and gray so you may not notice it at first, it should be near the top of the screen. To change the Y location of it you can edit the yad.ini file, set a different location, and run the program again. To stop the program, double click on it ( it’s a little difficult to hit it because it’s a transparent window, so you may need to double click several times ) or use the Task-Manager to close it. The purpose of the thing is to subliminally put it into your head that you are dreaming.”

    Aha! That is the same dos program I used a while back. Funny to see it still floating around on the internet.

  2. Ben August 15, 2007 at 6:59 am #

    Yea I know! It’s almost as old as the internet itself!!

  3. Zataod August 18, 2007 at 2:13 am #

    Wow! What a list. It would be interesting to an open database with all of these products and give people the opportunity to review them, and also write about their experiences using them.

    I’m going to have to bookmark this post for future reference.

  4. Ben August 18, 2007 at 12:55 pm #


    Since you mentioned it just now, I’ll confess/announce:

    a website with user-generated reviews & experience reports of lucid dreaming software, paid and free, and other products (Are you Dreaming coins, Lucid Dreaming Kit, brainwave entrainment for lucid dreaming CD’s, etc) is actually a project I’m putting together.

    I’ve only gotten so far as buying the domain name and sketching out ideas & designs on paper. Problem is just finding the time to piece it all together, and figure out how to install the infrastructure of the site without installing it over (and thus erasing) this blog (my number one fear!) (PS I am not a programmer.)

    But yea… look for it! 🙂

  5. Zataod August 18, 2007 at 9:50 pm #

    Ben — It sounds like a good idea. Even something that was a comprehensive link to the best ideas, stories, techniques, helpers out there would be a valuable resource.

    I think Del.icio.us serves this purpose in some ways, but it’s a little limited in some ways. Something a little more robust would be better.

    hi nice post, i enjoyed it

  7. The Mad Hatter August 21, 2007 at 2:26 am #

    You are dreaming coins! I forgot all about those. I gotta find mine!

    Which ones of these work on a Macintosh?

  9. Ben October 9, 2007 at 6:43 pm #

    I have confirmed with the guy behind much (all?) of the software at Dreamport that all their stuff works on a Mac. This would include some of the best software on this list; Paradiso, Lucid Warp, and Infinity.

  10. Panic November 7, 2007 at 5:54 pm #

    People interested in lucid dreaming should attempt to contribute to the relevant Wikibook txs…


  11. Rasselas21 December 1, 2009 at 7:53 pm #

    The links to DreamPort softwares (lucid, paradiso, infinity, etc) doesn’t work… try this link instead:


    It’s slow going to download them all… the RapidShare links didn’t work for me, but the MegaUpload links did.

  12. Melanie Zarth July 18, 2010 at 8:19 pm #

    I want to download the training tools, however it gets me to another page where I don’t see how to download them. Please let me know how I can get them. Thank you!

  13. Ben July 18, 2010 at 9:31 pm #

    Hi Melanie! I need to get this page and these links updated. A lot of the dream websites who made this software and had it available for download have since gone offline, thus the current problems! This is on my to do list. 🙂

  14. Hotarustar August 9, 2010 at 11:52 am #

    Yeah.. lol.. I’ve had LD’s since an early age, then they suddenly stopped.. Searching around I did lots of research on it as a teen. And I tried the “Am I dreaming” or “I am dreaming” method…. >.> I gave up once it finally got in my dream and the fact that i was like “oh hey.. i’m dreaming… ” and things went on.. but it was all just a normal dream.. when I woke up i was like “-anime cries face- aw come onnnn!!!”
    I’m trying a few binaural beats now. 🙂

  15. Rinaldo Rex.G February 16, 2011 at 6:59 am #

    I just love your website and it’s posts. But the dreamport’s domain has been expired… From where can i download INFINITY, paradiso, lucid warp, the goods, and all other stuff of dreamport’s website?. Why dont you please share the cached copy of these softwares. Please sir, i need to experience these softwares. Help me!

  16. Tiffany April 2, 2011 at 5:20 am #

    hello there, i am very interested in trying some of this out. when do you plan on updating everything? such a tease! 😉

  17. Ben April 7, 2011 at 3:16 am #

    Tiffany (and others who have recently noted the same issues)
    — I am sorry this page is out of date. I am going to get in touch with the makers of these software programs and see if I can host the files on my site that way these links way get outdated and go missing. My apologies and thanks so much for sticking around and commenting and letting me know you’re interested!

  18. Ben April 7, 2011 at 3:20 am #

    So sorry about these broken links. I am getting in touch with the makers of this software (who were giving it away for free) to see if I can host the files here and share them with people. Until then, these links will not work. Thanks for patience and I really appreciate you coming here to my lucid dreaming blog and checking things out!
