Why would it be insulting to say it was a dream?? As a lucid dreamer I know for a FACT that dreams are confused with both reality, oobes and so on due
to how realistic these dreams can be. Take for example our senses.. In lucid dreams these senses can be more vivid than waking life, but yet you now
get insulted if i say i think it was a dream.
Personally I think you were both awake and dreaming at same time. Sometimes when you suddenly wake up from a dream you might see both dream world and
real world for a few seconds, which means that dream parts will appear as hallucinations.
Oh, I've lucid dreamt before. Some of the greatest and most moving images I've ever known have come from lucid dreams. I have experience in ALL of
that. There was one time, I was looking at a stained glass window, all the different colors and patterns. I got woken up so suddenly that when I
opened my eyes, it took a full 2min before the colors went away. It was like they were still stuck in my eyes. I was looking around at my room, and
there in the center of my vision, was the piece of stained glass I'd been looking at.
I find it insulting BECAUSE I know the difference. This. Was. Reality. Plain and simple.
i guess you can inspect the spot where this shadow was standing, see if any windows or doors were left open, maybe ask around to see if anyone around
your way has had the same experience?
but this site is abotu denying ignorance, and there still allot of mystery with dreams and the human mind, what we've learned so far hasnt even
scratched the surface yet on a medical level.
i just dont like the idea of "I dont know what happened but dont say its a dream or i'm going to get mad". Even when you your self admit to being
half asleep, mumbling something then going back to sleep.

I meant insulting in general. I've already met with loads of skepticism today. Everything from "What'd you eat before ya laid down honey?" to
"Wow...I wish my imagination were that vivid!".
I have a college degree, I write novels and read quantum physics in my spare time...not to sound egotistical, but I know myself well enough to
distinguish reality from any form of dreaming or imaginative creativity, no matter how realistic. You know?
The fact that you were having a dream about a home with a lot of windows tells me that maybe your dream was getting ready to "show" you something
that something else didn't want you to see and interrupted your dream.
I was standing in the front yard looking up at the house (it was maybe 3-4 stories up), and a little round window on the second story from the top
started rotating...like there was a spindle in the center of it. I was going to look it up on my dream interpretation website this morning, but I got
busy with other stuff.
Actually, my thoughts are a little different on the meaning now that I know that you were on the outside of the house looking up at it versus being in
the house looking through the windows to the outside. So, yes, that changes things a little. If I come up with anything from your new description,
I'll let you know. In the meanwhile, I'll be curious to see what you've found out on your own when you get time.
Either way, it still appears to me that something was trying to keep you from finishing your dream. Just a little less sure as to why.
Crap, I didn't describe that right. I'd been in the house before I woke up, talked to whatever-it-was, and rolled over. When the dream picked up I
was in the yard, looking up at the house.
The inside of the house was polished wood...y'know, thinking about it now, the only way i can accurately describe it would be to say that it
resembled a smaller version of the Winchester Mansion! Bright colors, lots of different sized windows (one that spun)...very whimsical.
The only thing I can come up with right off the top of my head is that this middle round window that is rotating represents the window to the soul,
since it also appears to be towards the middle of the house based on your description.
Are you confused about something relating to your soul?
Isn't everyone? I think a lot about this life. Reality. What it's for, what WE'RE for. The book I'm reading now on my kindle is a book on quantum
physics, NDEs and human consciousness. The author is a physicist who's had multiple NDEs.
Here's another tip that I have failed to do myself.
In the last couple of weeks I had two specific dreams that stood out enough to make me wake up and tell myself that it was important that I remember
them, unfortunately, I didn't write them down right after I had them and I forgot the message by the time I woke up!
For some reason, both dreams came to me in the form of writing. The messages were written down for me to read, they weren't actual events that I was
supposed to remember. I wish I had written them down!
I absolutely believe that our dreams can receive outside interference, the question is trying to figure out who, what, if and when it's happening.
Sometimes outside noises can interrupt them, but then again, I've had dreams revolve around noises I've heard while I'm sleeping too.
However, I would personally have a problem with some figure or shadow having interrupted my dream. That one just doesn't make a lot of sense to me
unless there's intentional outside interference taking place. Obviously, you were meant to have the dream anyway!
