This kind of things is happening to me too. Since I started to work on my spirituality, I meet more and more people who work on it, including getting
back in contact with people I haven't talked with for years.
It's either a part of a "higher plan", so that more and more people meet and enrich each other with their views, or mere probabilities coming from
the fact that I keep on meeting new people but just started noticing those who have a strong spirituality.
This "dreamuniversity" is something quite weird to me. A few years ago, I've been playing to that game Nights Into Dreams, where a boy and a girl
met in their dreams and shared great adventures. For some reason, I liked, I mean LOVED this idea. I mean, it felt so natural to me that I adopted it
and been using it in some of the poems / novels I have written. I actually fell in love with a girl I knew but never really noticed just because of a
dream in which we were talking to each other. I used to remember less than five dreams a year, so each one of them meant a lot to me, especially the
people I meet. Now, since I'm working on lucid dreaming, I remember all my dreams, and most of them don't make sense : they're just dreams about
random subjects or about things that I have in mind. But some of them are different, somehow seem to mean more to me. And in most if not all of them,
there is allways the same person, a girl, whose face I can't remember. I know I don't know her in my daily life, but still, when I meet her in my
dreams, it's as if we knew each other for a very long time, a much deeper complicity than I ever got with anyone else. Maybe I'm exploring this
dreamuniversity without knowing it. Or just some fantasy to please my romantic mind... ! Anyway, I've been talking to much about this subject, I'll
make another thread about it later. Let's get back to the main subject, inner realms.
To OP : I also have been exploring these realms, either by meditation or by what some other people would call daydreaming. I could even say I spend
more time there than in the material world. This actually caused me some trouble : I tend to talk alone, to forget myself in public places, or just to
make tons of blunders just because I don't "pay attention". Most of the time, it's light, but when I get in there really deeply, I just forget
about everything else around me.
This realm, since I have allways been a imaginative boy, is filled with ideas and sensations (I actually tried to build a whole other world in it, so
that I could make the stories in my novels more "real" by giving them some place to exist). But when I manage to calm myself, then I see it's true
nature. Just space, as described in a higher post. Black without being dark (I mean, it's black as if it could have been yellow or purple, it's not
some dark and freaky place), and every single thought is like thunder getting through it at light speed, and making waves as a arrow would do if sent
in water. Seeing it this way actually helps me a lot when I come to visualisation, I mean real one, when I not only see the things, but also FEEL them
(quite funny sensation actually, I once have really gone wtf since the feeling of having something heavy on my chest seemed VERY real).
Well, this was my (big) grain of salt to the subject. I hope I haven't been too far off-subject. If I did, just make me notice, I'll be more
disciplined in the future.
