This thread got out of hand I can see. I guess everyone has their reasons.
First off, I don’t often post anymore. Why? I get too much criticism sometimes or sometimes I just feel that I will get abolished by the mere mention
of something. It wasn’t like this a few months ago but then again I have changed a lot. Unfortunately I don’t have much to offer to you bet555, though
I feel the need to share this experience with someone other than myself.
Now through my dreaming experience I have had lucid dreams and all sorts of other things though I have never really used the power for flying or
anything spectacular like that. No, my lucid dreams were brought on by nightmares, as was mentioned earlier. I remember my father told me that if I
realized that they were fake and harmless than I would be able to control them. I was able to do what he had said and I found it to be greatly
rewarding although I was too young to realize its true potential. As I grew older this experience became less and less common and it would seem that
it pretty much disappeared. The problem was in a few years the problem came back with more oomph than before. Too my recollection I have died multiple
times in my dreams. The latest one, which happened only about three weeks ago, was rather odd to say the least. The thing is, every time I die in my
dreams I can feel it. And this time was rather gruesome. In this dream I was a great fighter and my weapon was not only my technique but my awesome
sword. Unfortunately I was soon to be beaten. I had not been defeated in battle before, as I was still alive, however that record was soon to be
destroyed. I encountered another fighter who greatly surpassed my skill and I was impaled with his sword and it slid smoothly into my stomach.
Naturally I toppled over only to have it pushed further into me. The thing that made this dream weird was the pain that followed. After being sworded
by this exceptional fighter, the pain lingered, in real life, for several minutes to follow. This was not the only case that the pain has lingered
after death, no. Several times I have awakened to feel the pain of my dreamed death.
What is the point? I too wonder about what connection dreaming has with ‘reality’. The thing is though it is reality that affects the dream not the
dream that affects reality. When I was impaled in my dream it was because I was already feeling the pain in reality. So, my dream decided to take the
pain and turn it into a form that I could see. To this day I am not sure about what exactly caused the pain but being the kind of unrevealing person I
am I did not go to see a doctor about the pain. This relates to the peeing the bed scenario. Often times I will dream about going to the washroom
although since I have experienced this scenario multiple times it has become a trigger for me to wake up. It is because I had to go pee in real life
that I had the dream about going pee.
Anyway, I grow tired with this post. For anyone who wishes to criticize I would first point out that I have read all six pages of this thread as well
as all the posts included, and have based my post accordingly.
