Gustavo Vieira – A Talk With a Dream Girlfriend in Lucid Dreaming


I’m in a street. A woman on the other side of the street is looking at me. We know we are very close friends, maybe in a relationship or even married (but I only know this inside the dream, because I do not know who she is in waking life nor am I currently in a relationship).


She is beautiful. Short height, brunette, green eyes, her face kind of looks like actress Zooey Deschanel. We hug. We start talking a bit while walking and I become lucid. I decide to talk about dreams.


Me: “Can I ask you a question?”


Woman: “Yes, you can.”


Me: “Do you know that this is all a dream? You are dreaming too.”


Woman: “Really?”


I notice that she becomes a little disappointed to hear that.


Me: “Yes, you know why? Give me your hand. Count your fingers. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. You have 6 fingers. See?”


She is not very surprised.


Me: “Another question. We know each other…” (Here I notice that she is a bit disappointed to hear the word “know) “… ahm… we like …” (same expression) “… we love …” (she becomes happier) “… and we usually meet in the dream. But sometimes I wake up in the middle of the dream. When this happens I disappear and I’m no longer by your side. Did you never find this strange?”


Woman: “No, I understand. Notice the different cultures around the world. There are countries where when a woman is with a man and he disappears, she stays faithful and waits for his return. There are other countries that do not.”


After we talk a little more, we agree to meet more often in future dreams.
