I am not someone who has ever been able to master lucid dreaming, however I've had many instances of becoming aware that I'm dreaming over the
course of my life. A few have been really odd too. For instance, one time a shaman was telling me to open my eyes, and I replied, "they are open,"
and he said, "no, your other
eyes." And then I did, and I was laying in my bed staring at the wall, while still also continuing to
simultaneously dream about the shaman in his hut (for lack of a better term for it.) He then said, "See, you can be in two places at once."
Anyhow, I've always had strange dreams like that. But this one was absolutely hilarious. I found myself in a field. It was beautiful, peaceful,
placid. I realized I was dreaming. I told myself, "Okay.... you're fully aware. You know this is a dream. You have the power to do anything you
want. You'll never be more fully in control of your own consciousness than in this state. So create or do whatever you most want!" Suddenly, I
somehow forgot what I was doing, and found that I was a fuzzy muppet-like... thing... with horns. And I bent over and stuck my horns into the dirt.
I quickly realized this was happening, pulled my horns out of the dirt, stood back up, and said, "No, no, no. Stop getting distracted and dreaming
random stuff. Create something amazing! Try flying up into space and seeing the world from above!"
*Horns in the dirt.*
*Stands back up.*
"NO, me! Come on! Cooperate! You can be a horned muppet if you must, but at least do something awesome. Create a portal to another universe and step
through it. This is a dream. You are in control..."
*Horns in the dirt.*
This whole inner dialogue was going on, and no matter what I told myself, or how aware I was that I was dreaming, I found myself with my muppet horns
back in the dirt.
Finally I said to myself, "Okay fine then, if you won't do what I say, lets wake up at least," and woke up right then and there. Then I started
laughing because it was hysterical in retrospect.
Anyway, just thought someone might get a chuckle out of this.
