I don't pretend to know much about astral projection or meditation or anything of the sort, but it's interesting that I see this thread today,
because the other night I had an interesting experience.
I went to sleep the night before last, very exhausted. I had been up til 3am the night before and had a very long day. On top of it I had a fair
amount of very hot green chile, whish I've heard makes you dream more vividly (spicy food).
Anyway, I went to sleep and started dreaming the usual foggy dreams that make no sense, then I was dreaming that I was being given instructions on how
to have lucid dreams by someone next to me. I was told that it might be kinda scary, but to let myself go. I then (still dreaming) sat upright and
stepped into the most lucid dream I have had in years. It was a dream where everything seemed more real than here. It was real-time, with all the
sounds, sights, smells, but more intense. I could fly in this reality, and seemed to have complete control over my faculties and whatever "self" I
was inhabiting there. The besst thing was - I KNEW I was lucid dreaming.
As I woke up, I felt very disappointed that I was back in my heavy, painful body. I did not want to leave the dream so soon, and I felt like I had
broken some unwritten rule of lucid dreaming by having something to eat there - I know, silly.
I would love to do this more often, but I'm afraid I'd get to liking it more than this crappy reality. Seriously.
