There wasn't much of a story. I believe the bells inconsistent volumes made it difficult to relax sufficiently to attain a deep sleep. I lucid dream every night, all night, and as you might imagine, get little sleep. I had hoped the bells would improve my experience, instead I believe they actually hindered me.
Not from Lucid Dreaming. From the bells, possibly.
Again, the inconsistent volume level were distracting. Loud, sharp noises are not conducive to restful sleep. Sounds should be soft like clouds, marshmallows or maybe pillows. The bells produced sounds like a doorbell, which leads one to get up and answer the door. Being led through a dream scape may have been helpful.
look for another audio book.
Tradition states that the dream state lasts only for a few brief moments at the end of the sleep state during REMs. I have noted quite different results. If I sleep. I dream, whether it's for 3 minutes, 5 minutes, or 15, if I've been asleep I've been dreaming. And it's been a dream where I've been in control if I've wanted it. Most of the time, I just watch to see what will happen like a movie. Sometimes I direct if things get boring.
I mostly enjoyed the author's enthusiasm and lighthearted delivery. The text moved along quickly enough to not be boring.
Sure, I would listen to more of Cathy's writing. She uses an everyday tone of voice that should relate well to most listeners.
My biggest takeaway was her suggestion that aspiring writers need to find other writers with roughly the same skill level and attitude as their own, and her reasons for doing so.
My suggestion for Cathy in response to this is to pen another title explaining exactly how to find like-skilled, like-minded writers.
