Thanks for sharing. It's been suggested that much of what dreams are 'trying to tell us' has to do with the feeling you are left with upon
I myself place a particular bit of importance on specifically worded messages, names, book titles, etc. when they are vivid enough to carry over into
my waking life. I usually don't remember such details, so when I do, I give it some extra thought. For instance, I visit a town called "Pnell"
(pronounced "Thnell" (???)) in recurring dreams, and once met a really cool king named "Leoben".
Lately I've been waking up with absurd phrases or sentences in my head. The most recent was "Thirty blank cartridges, I counted them myself. Thirty
blank cartridges. Thirty."
But I digress. The description of your dream is all very positive, and you obviously must've felt good (if a bit puzzled) when you woke up. Are you
in love? Are you generally happy? Did something in your life recently bring that up a notch? Did you recently help someone, or do something positive
for the environment?
The main thing I gather, as generic as it sounds, is that you're trying to tell yourself that you're doing something right/on the right path, and
that the planet adores you for something you've done, or have the capacity to do.
Also, next time you notice the breeze on your skin - awake OR while dreaming - look at your hands and ask yourself if you are dreaming. I believe our
subconscious selves WANT us to become lucid in our dreams. I believe lucid dreaming is a state that takes the combined efforts of our conscious and
subconscious minds to achieve. And I believe that all dreams contain clues - something that if we look at just right, given the right amount of
attention, that INDUCE the awareness: Aha! I'm dreaming!
But if you get into the habit of performing a little ritual (looking at your hands, questioning whether dreaming or awake) frequently throughout the
day, eventually you'll do it in a dream, thus triggering a lucid dream.
I must say, this only worked for me a few times, then it was like my dreamworld 'wised up' and I did my little ritual - only to remain convinced it
was "real". Upgrades?
