I am apparently going into a lucid dreaming period right now. This just happens sometimes, and I always really enjoy it when it does.
When I start to have lucid dreams, I always get "lessons" in how to do things there. There is a narrator voice, but I have never seen a form or body
associated with it, and for some reason, do not wonder about that at the time.
So last night was pretty active, a lot of dreams... some dreams within dreams (where you think you woke up, found out you weren't, then woke up
again, many times).
This time I was having a dream that was not so lucid, and I laid down to go to sleep in it. I began dreaming, but then was lucid! I knew I was
dreaming, and that I had control of things. I was even going around to people in my dream and telling them that I am lucid dreaming. I saw various
family members and told them this, all the while knowing it is not REALLY them, only a version from my subconscious.
Saw some cool stuff, like a giant eagle atop a tower, that was somehow me, though I could see it from outside It was like I was analyzing my dream
while I had it and knew everything I saw is supposed to be an aspect of myself.
Anyway, the lesson for today was to see if I could see myself in a mirror! I don't know why, but the voice suggested this is some important type of
skill, that would mark an important development, if I can do it.
I found a corner with a mirror and when I first approached, I saw no reflection at all!
I had the impression, in fact, that there was another world on the other side, and I tapped on the glass, trying to call my reflection up. Then I saw
a face on the other side, but I had trouble getting a good look. It wouldn't look up at me, had it's eyes looking down, was moving, had hair getting
in it's face.
I began using my mental force to try to stabilize the image, and got to see it a bit more, but it wasn't me!
It was a womans face similar to mine, but looked like it had been beat up, or sick... dark puffy circles under the eyes and stuff. But it wouldn't
look directly at me.
I decided I needed to concentrate on making more ressemblance, and began focusing and repeating "heal", "heal", "heal". The face start to
transform and look more healthy... but then it went into a face that was way off from my own- it was a red haired girl, rather big boned, with
freckles. She seemed let down that I was being unsuccessful. I did not recognize the girl as anyone I know.
But I could not get this reflection to look directly forward, nor to actually look like me. She eventually left the mirror altogether.
So now I am wondering why it is important to learn to do this in a lucid dream?
It could actually be interpretted many ways, I am aware.
Has anyone ever heard anything like this? About being able to see yourself in a mirror while dreaming?
