Brian Selva – Autumn 2008 in Lucid Dreaming
Unfortunately, I am not one to keep track of my dreams in such things as a dreaming journal, but just last night I am pretty sure that I experienced a simultaneous dream.
When I woke up from my dream(s) last night, I was aware, and can still remember three separate, distinct happenings, although I cannot recall what they were. While I was dreaming, I also noticed that my physical body was tossing, turning, and feeling on edge (as much as a sleeping body can be) more than I’ve ever noticed before while dreaming. I think this can be attributed to the fact that as my mind was playing these three separate dreams at once, my body was trying it’s best to work with my mind through them. I’m not sure if that makes any sense.
I also recall while dreaming a sense, as was mentioned in the article, Multiple Awareness in Simultaneous Dreaming,* where “Several thoughts go rushing at super speed through my mind.” At some point, the thoughts and the body movements were all just too much for me to handle and I had to force myself to wake up (although I am unsure as to why I was holding on to those dreams for so long in the first place).
I hope this e-mail is helpful to you at the LDE.
