After a fairly long, mostly forgotten dream, fading in and out of lucidity, I woke up in a small, dumpy bed in a shabby, flop-house-like apartment. My first prurient thought was the bed would be too squeaky for sex because it would probably wake up the neighbors. Then, however, due to the apartment‘s unfamiliarity, I realized I just had a false awakening and became lucid again.
I wake up in the middle of the night, I go to the bathroom and go back to bed. While I’m getting back to sleep, I start to feel vibrations. It’s another WILD experience I’m having, those OBE-like ones. I start to detach from my body and I get out of bed. Here I am, inside a dream, already perfectly lucid. I do what I always do when this happens: I go to my bedroom window, open it and see what landscape is in front of me.
This was my second ever lucid dream experience. The first one was a couple of years ago, and lasted only a few seconds: I realized I was dreaming, and let myself become very excited; I was overwhelmed by what I might do now that I was lucid (I’d wanted to see the earth from space), and the dream collapsed, leaving only ‘fuzz,’ like the snow on a non-transmitting television channel. I don’t remember what I was dreaming when I became lucid.
(WILD reentry into dream.) I arrive in dreamland sitting crosslegged on the floor, fully lucid. Rising, I exclaim, ‘This is all a dream, it‘s all in my head!’ and marvel at the realism of the dimly lit room I‘ve been transported to. With strong focus, I ghost through the door, emerging outside under a canopy of stars. I gaze upwards and intend to visit the heavens, but my flying abilities sputter after some minor levitation. Time to switch gears.
I began this Wake Initiated Lucid Dream around 9 AM and found myself in a hotel lobby, already with a rather decent amount of awareness. I began in front of an Information desk, and routinely rubbed my hands to stabilize the dream, repeating to myself that “This is a dream.”
I find myself lucid, as if in mist, surrounded by trees, although I can only see the smooth and sinuous gray trunks of a single tree directly in front of me. I want to go up above the trees so that I can study them, but I feel rooted to the spot. I close my eyes, and will myself to be high up in the sky. I’m feeling frustrated, because there’s no reason I should have to literally fly up there since this is a dream; I should be able to will myself into the sky.
I created a dream plan on the 28th of March 2015 (one of the tools I learnt on Charley Morley’s lucid dreaming course). I had never practiced lucid dreaming before, my 1st dream course was in March, but my plan was ‘in my next lucid dream I would love to explore and harness my creative mind and see through ‘reality‘s boundaries.’ On the plan I wrote this, and drew a pictorial diagram and had a short statement of intent.
During a period of many difficulties, including the end of a relationship that had resulted in 3 kids, and the death of my Saami shaman teacher and friend, I stayed at a friend‘s house. This was one year ago.
My dream body doesn‘t always manifest resembling a physical body, and I have experienced several different forms in dreams over the years. The forms seems to relate to the type of awareness I am wielding at the time. Here’s a recent example of a different type of dream body:
I was standing on a rugged mountaintop, no vegetation, the rock was a reddish color. I found my hands by instinct and became lucid.
This was not a lucid dream, but rather an out of body experience. After leaving my body, I decided to move outside through the balcony door. Outside, approximately 6 feet away from the house, a curtain hung down from the sky, more like a network with holes, approximately 3-4 inches in size. I noticed other similar curtains further away. My surroundings were hazy; the sky, the air, and everything else was a rusty brown colour, although in various light and dark shades.
I shape shift a lot in my dream time, have been aware of my sleeping body multiple times while dreaming and most recently about a month ago I had a simultaneous dream experience for the first time.
