George M – Some Lucid Dreaming Experiences
I have had about a dozen lucid dreams this past month. I‘ve done a lot of flying in my lucid dreams. I would swim through the air sometimes, and then fly like Superman in others. Sometimes I would take off in a lucid dream and then not be able to direct where I was going. With practice though, I have developed better flight control and this does not happen much anymore.
It may sound strange, but I have actually enjoyed leaping great distances, like the length of a football field. I enjoy this even more than flying, sometimes. Flying and leaping have been the most exhilarating experiences of my life.
When I was in high school, my mother told me that if I ever became aware in a dream, I should look in the mirror. I don‘t know why she said this, since we didn‘t talk about dreams very much. She died a couple of years later. Anyway, these past few months I have started looking into mirrors in my lucid dreams on account of her recommendation.
At first, the mirrors were fuzzy, and the images didn‘t really look like me. I have seen myself reflected as my 12-year-old self for example. Once, the image had no head. I have also seen the reflection showing an Asian person, even a woman. It‘s funny that the first issue of the LDE that I received was about mirrors and lucid dreams. The synchronicity is beautiful.
