I’m on a dark featureless field, in charge of a force of people, many of which are turning against each other. I yell as loudly as I can, commanding them to stop, urgently and with great authority, cutting through the aggressive confusion. The duels cease and I order everyone to fall into place.

My lucid dream began with me asleep next to my girlfriend who at the time was pregnant with our son. In the dream we’re asleep in bed when we were awakened to a violent beating on our bedroom door. I hid my girlfriend in the closet and said, ‘I will protect you both.’ I opened the door. A black mass tackled me to the floor. I became aware that the black mass then shape-shifted into a dark doppelganger of myself.

Towards the end of a long dream, I found myself walking around an older neighborhood with many, ivy-covered brick buildings that had been transformed into trendy restaurants and bars. [It reminded me a little of the Washington D.C. Georgetown area.]

Laurance – Past-Life Request  in Lucid DreamingPast-Life Request

I began having lucid dreams about a year ago. At the time, I was not aware that this is something that people try to do, it just happened to me. First of all, the experience was very frightening. On many occasions I became aware that I was dreaming and tried to wake myself up. In the process, my body would not move even though my mind told it to.

Lately I’ve been looking into Astral Projection and OBE’s hoping to have my own so that I know what it feels like in comparison to lucid dreaming. My dream felt like a mixture between the two, because I felt as if I was looking in on the dream rather than being a part of it.

I’m strolling down a country road, not one familiar to me in waking reality. It’s a broad unpaved road. I’m alone. I’m walking close to a shoulder-high stone wall on my right. The lighting is luminous yet subdued. I sense open fields, a very soft green, stretching out beyond the wall. On my left is a dark forest. I’m perfectly relaxed, absolutely convinced I’m awake and out for a long, meditative walk.

I am on the couch trying to sleep when I decide to peek at the time. All I see is the number ‘3.’ Nothing else. I quickly conclude I am dreaming. I roll over, but as is often the case during my first lucid of the evening, my perceived motor control sucks. I flounder around, trying to relax and pick myself up. I eventually do.

 Gustavo Vieira – Philosophical Conversation in Lucid Dreaming

 

Lately, in my lucid dreams, I tend to ask about various things. On a recent lucid dream, while I’m watching my hands all deformed, two children come to me. They are bald, and remind me of Tibetan Buddhist children. But their eyes are very small and too close to each other for a normal human. I then ask some philosophical and religious questions. This is the conversation:

 

Me – “Who are you?”

 

Child – “I am me. I’m a being that exists’… etc. (Here he says such philosophical stuff that I do not remember, unfortunately.)

 

Me – “What is the purpose of life?”

 

Child – “It’s to live a life after another.”

 

(I then rephrase the question)

 

Me – “And what is the meaning of life?”

 

Child – “It’s the same thing.”

 

Me – “Then, when we die, do we go to another life?”

 

Child – “Yes.”

 

Me – “Does Heaven exist?”

 

Child – “Yes. Heaven is the interval between one life and another.”

 

Me – “Does God and Jesus exist?”

 

Here comes to me a priest, speaking fast and with religious and philosophical terms about being prophets, but unfortunately I do not pay much attention because I feel I’m about to wake up and am concerned to try to keep on dreaming. Oh well. I’ll try again next time.

I’m part of a small group of people in a large room waiting for the speaker, a spiritual figure reminiscent of Gandhi, thin and old, and so frail he has to crawl across the floor. I am closest to him and when he looks at me I promptly lift him in my arms and set him on top of a platform from which he will address the sadly scant gathering. I stay close to him, sitting on the floor, in case he needs me. I don’t remember what he says, only that he imparts a single vital truth.

Maria Isabel Pita – Asking My Dead Grandparents Questions in Lucid DreamingAsking My Dead Grandparents Questions

I wanted to share an interesting lucid dream I had Saturday morning 04/13/2013 before waking up. Initially I was in or under some kind of window. I pushed the window up and could kind of get my head out. There were other people around and I spoke with them but can’t remember what we said. I wasn’t scared but felt confined and somehow worked my way out. In hindsight it looked like a row of green house windows or something you could pivot up.

This dream is from a few years ago (I was 18) and had a profound impact on me and is what really peaked my curiosity about dreaming, lucid dreaming in particular.
