From dream warrior to author, Mike Saxton spins the first volume of a three volume post apocalyptic tale based on four years of lucid dreams. Saxton first discovered this “conscious dreaming” to combat chronic nightmares that plagued his childhood. It would later manifest as a “window” into the world turned upside down.

When Saxton began his lucid dreams, it was out of necessity. “I had night terrors as a child which later on diminished into nightmares that occurred several nights per month. The difference was I remembered the nightmares after waking. I had no choice but to figure out how to change my dreams,” says Saxton. Though he learned early on that he could not control the dream, he could influence it. He found that he could fly away from danger, grow into a giant and stomp out “dream monsters”, etc.

During the summer of 1994, Saxton began to lucid dream where he was an observer in a chaotic world in ruins. These dreams continued for almost four full years, building a scenario of a world turned upside down. “What I saw would forever change the impact my dreams would have on my life,” says Saxton. Over the following eleven years, he organized what he had seen and began writing in the summer of 2009. The first book of the three part series, 7 Scorpions: Rebellion was published in 2010 by Eloquent Books.

With the release of the 2010 science fiction blockbuster, Inception, the interest in the concept of being “aware” in the dream state, aka lucid dreaming has escalated. “In the late sixties and early seventies, researchers investigating the unique phenomenon … were operating on the fringe of science … Today, a web search for ‘lucid dreaming’ or ‘lucid dreams’ returns nearly one million results,” says Daniel Oldis in his book The Inception and Conscious and Lucid Dreams.

The ability of one to enter a state of awareness and consciously interact with the dream world has been scientifically proven. Robert Waggoner, in his book Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, says this, “For more than thirty years, I have practiced lucid dreaming … During this time, I have had approximately 1,000 lucid dreams ….”
