I haven't had an awesome dream experience in what seems like forever... until last night.
Have you ever been asleep and heard the phone ring and answered it, started to talk and then it rings again and you realize you are still asleep?
This is kind of what happened to me last night which is kind of wierd being that I can usually recognize when I am asleep and dreaming.
I sat up on my bed (I was sure I was awake) and started to get up to go to the bathroom. I looked to my right and saw myself lying asleep on the bed.
When I saw myself I realized I was asleep and dreaming.
I tried to contain my excitement so I wouldn't wake myself and get slammed back into my body. Fortunately, I was able to do this and remain in a
I stood up and remembered that people had asked me if I could travel through walls while lucidly dreaming, I decided to try. Keep in mind that I was
in a 100% Lucid dream state at this point. I went (I was floating smoothly more than walking) to the wall next to my bedroom window and tried to stick
my face through the wall and look outside. My face went into the wall, but no matter how far I pushed it into the wall it never came out the other
I walked over to the window and tried there. When I did this I went right through the window and found myself outside my house in the front yard. I
couldn't believe it. I had a great feeling come over me and a great sense of freedom and power.
Generally in these dreams I can fly, but this one was a bit different. While I would claim that the others seemed to be real, this one was different
in that I was truly, truly 100% aware of my surroundings and everything matched with real-life perfectly, I could even see my body. It was just as it
is in real-life, except that it was like I had a bit of a glow and seemed to be less dense - if that makes any sense.
It was like I was a rookie and I had to learn how to fly. When I first tried I wasn't going that fast or that far. The more I tried the further up I
got until I was so far up I could see the landscape below as being very small, at this point I could fly very, very fast as well.
I tried to go to a place I used to live, but I couldn't find my way from such a height, in the dark - I used to live in a different state.
I went back to my house, I was floating above it and I went in through the roof. It was amazing, because as I entered I went through roof, into the
attic space, and then into the house, evrything was exactly as it is in my waking state, from the insulation in the attic down to the picture frames
and pictures inside.
I left my house, went to my parents home, and flew in; I wanted to see if my mom could see me like this and what she thought of it. When I went in I
could see the alarm clock on her bed-side. It read 4:17a. She was asleep on her bed. I tried to wake her by touching her shoulder, but she wouldn't
wake-up or move. When I made contact with her I had an incredible feeling in my hand and up my forearm. It was a good feeling - like a connection,
really, I don't know how else to explain it.
When I realized she wasn't going to wake up I left and flew back to my home. I flew around the back yard for a bit, just experimenting with what I
I was still very excited and I went down to the ground to see what else I could do. I dipped my feet and legs into the pool and could feel the
sensation of the water, but my feet and legs didn't get wet. I moved around like everything was normal, except I didn't walk - I seemed to float
effortlessly where ever I went. Then I went into my house through the back door, without opening it. When I was inside I wanted to try and turn on the
faucet. I could grab the faucet, but I couldn't move it. I tried to open a cabinet door, but I couldn't. I could pass my face and body though any
object and see what was on the other side, but I couldn't physically manipulate anything. It was like being invisible. I went back to my room and saw
myself still asleep in bed.
I sat at the end of my bed, where I originally realized I was in a dream state, and looked around my room with a feeling of sheer euphoria, a giddy
feeling, like being excited about getting something you have always wanted or felt like you couldn't have (like having a crush on someone you think
is the Bees Knees, someone that was just out of your league, then finding out they feel the towards you). It was a great feeling.
I laid back down into my body and when I was almost all the way back into my body I felt the jolt that I refer to as being "slammed" back into my
body. When I felt this I knew I was back and I woke myself up and looked immediately at the clock to see how long I was asleep, it read 4:30a.
This was a welcome experience after having had nightmares the last couple of times. I have had Lucid dreams throughout my life, but none seemed as
accurate and as real as this one did. I hope I get to have similiar experiences many more times throughout my life.
I also hope each and everyone of you, if you wish to, get to have an experience like this - if not just once, many times as well.
These experiences make you realize the complexity of our minds and the world we live in.
Do any of you have any experience in interpreting dreams? What do you think of this dream?
Some believe that dreams are actually based in reality almost like us operating in another dimension. This could be true, but not for all dreams, as
some of them are obviously created by the mind.
Lucid dreams are not like a traditional dream. You are aware of the surroundings like when you are awake and you generally have complete control of
yourself and everything around you. You also remember them just like you would remember something you did while awake yesterday.
Does anyone have any opinions on Waking or Lucid dreams? Or an opinion on my dream and what it could mean?
I don't mean just the general theory of dream interpretation, but what these types of dreams could mean in reality, and if they are based in reality,
not the sub-concious.
Some believe that we have guides that help us during our dream state, what do you all think?
