This to me is a sign that you are maturing in your dreaming. Teaching the other dream characters how to fly and so forth. Just about anyone in the
real world that I am around somewhat often and have conversations with... they have been in my dreams at least once. Practically everyone I know by
now has been in my dreams at some time.
There has even been an ATSer in my dreams, not that I got the way they looked right, but I knew that this person in the dream represented them. And
some people I online gamed with, though I didn't get the way they looked correct, I know it was a representation of them cause they said "yes,
that's who I am, I can't believe we run into eachother." And so forth. (This really goes against the idea of parrallel universe, because if it's
a parrallel universe then how would it be a big deal for me to run into them, the circumstances require the situation that is going on in this
universe, unless my dream had a near impossible coincedence in a parrallel universe as well)
It makes more sense in this situation to assume that it is the mind (I also like to call it the self now) at work, though I do not totally go against
the idea that some dreams are taking place in a parrallel universe.
Apparently it is a reflection of yourself, yes, but strangely the dream characters have a personality that goes along with themselves in real life.
It really is amazing how accurate dreams can portray the world and the people in it. Now some girl may be in love with you in the dream but in the
real world they aren't, anyone may be a friend to you in the dream when they aren't in the real world... But realizing that under different
circumstances, the base of who they are and what they represent, they could very easily have a great relationship with you "in another world." Or
under different circumstances.
I've had a few where I told the dream characters they could fly. Usually I just tell them they can, and they will, I say "Just try it." The other
night I had one where I was walking down the sidewalk and it rang true that I was dreaming. Across the street there were people, but on my side of
the road there was nobody. So I crossed the street by jumping over the road, and as I jumped a speeding car flew under me missing my feet by half a
I would just walk by and among these people, they'd say hey how are you? I'd say doing good, it's just a dream, see you can fly. Interestingly,
they only floated up for about 3 seconds, hovered for a second, slowly floated back down, and then went back to their normal walking. Walking as if
nothing had happened. I did this with about eight people before the dream faded into greenish whiteness and I woke up.
Another thing to try obviously, if you haven't is to tell them it's a dream. I used to do this in an abrasive manner, yelling at them that it's a
dream and they will never believe me this way. Instead, respectfully ask them, do you dream? If I ask them in a guarded, careful way, they almost
always say, "of course I have!" And then I say, "well you know what, this is a dream to me." "Somewhere right now my body is fully asleep and
here I am." And they just sort of nod and take it in.
