The beginning of what I remember started with me working in my shop. There was one regular employee and two who I'd never seen before. The one was
doing her regular job and the other two were hanging up a grommet strip, I don't know why.
The regular said there was a mountain lion in the shop. Sure enough, it was just wandering around and about the size of a collie. I told everyone to
get up on the tables and I opened the door to let the mountain lion out.
Before I could climb up on the table the mountain lion walked out the door and joined a small herd of other animals heading south. I distinctly
remember black rhinos in the herd and I though it was like a zoo escape. Then someone said there was another mountain lion in the shop. It was about
half the size of the first one.
I thought to myself, "This makes no sense. I must be dreaming." Then in my dream I "woke up" on the table. The two employees were still hanging
the grommet strip. Then I started to worry about my little dog. Had she been attacked by the mountain lions? I called for her and she appeared on
But it wasn't the dog I called. It was one that had died about 15 years ago. That's when I knew I was still dreaming and the lucid part started.
As soon as I realized it was a dream, I wanted to fly. I flew around the shop a little, I flew outside, and then I flew up into the night sky.
That's when things got a little strange (because up to that point, it was all pretty normal.)
As I flew up to the stars, I began to glow with a soft, warm white light. As I got higher, I noticed small lights the same color dotting the night
sky. Somehow, I knew they were people, just like me. I flew closer to them, and there were so many the inky blackness of night was replaced by these
warm white beings. There was no darkness at all.
This made me nervous, so I started flying back to Earth. The white lights receded and were replaced by the usual night sky. I landed in my back yard
near my koi pond. One of the fish broke the surface of the water and seemed to be trying to speak to me, but no sound. Then the fish started dancing
around for me to watch.
At that point, my phone rang and woke me up for real.
Too bad. I was having a good time.
As a side note for anyone who may be interested, lately I've been playing a 528 Hz tone while I sleep. It really messed up my sleep schedule at
first, I overslept every night for about a week. Things are a bit more normalized now.
