Yves – Unexpected Voice of the Dream in Lucid Dreaming
Last year, I decided to manifest a certain amount of money within a week’s time, by using a metaphysical technique that had worked for me in the past. I was totally committed to this objective, totally believed I could do it and even regarded it as already achieved.
I was briefly woken up the next morning, around 5 or 6AM, and went back to sleep lying on my back. I experienced a brief lapse of consciousness, then Engaging the Awareness Behind the Dream 22 Lucid Dreaming Experience suddenly became aware of powerful vibrations running up and down my entire body. I welcomed the vibrations and relaxed fully into them, all the while repeating quietly to myself, “This is a dream.”
Without warning, I was teleported, fully conscious, into the living room. It looked somewhat different; I saw my younger brother and a few others sitting on chairs. But I didn’t pay attention to them, as I was mesmerized by the fact that I was fully awake in a dream. As I walked across the floor, I concentrated on the sensation of the ground pushing against my feet, amazed at the solidity. I kept repeating to myself, “This is a dream.”
Suddenly, everything started fading, losing color, going grey. I mentally shouted, “FULL CLARITY NOW!” and everything became brighter, more vivid, than when I ‘arrived’. The room itself looked different, but before I could take in details, an idea suddenly occurred to me – now that I was in direct contact with my Subconscious, I could give it instructions without interference from my doubting conscious mind!
I instantly remembered my money manifestation project, then with total confidence, I verbally affirmed at the top of my lungs: “I AM GOING TO MANIFEST A WINDFALL OF MILLIONS OF FRANCS BEFORE THE END OF THIS MONTH!” As I finished the last word, a commanding voice boomed out of empty space (on my left): “IT’S NOT GOING TO WORK!” I was considerably surprised; both by the phenomenon of a voice talking to me out of nowhere – and by the unexpected, negative response.
I decided not to give up. I would give the command again, this time with more intensity. I took in a deep breath, inhaling energy. Just as I was about to scream out my affirmation again, much louder than the last time, the whole dream instantly collapsed and I was back on my bed in the waking state.
Apparently, my Subconscious had prevented me from carrying out that final attempt. Would my money goal have materialized if I did? Did my Subconscious mean that the technique I was using to manifest the goal was the wrong one, or that the goal itself was wrong? When the voice spoke, I intuitively sensed it referred to the latter. Nevertheless, I resolved to persist with my goal in waking life, believing that I could override my Subconscious through willful application of metaphysical principle. It didn’t work (as predicted).
(PS: I had never encountered the phenomenon of the ‘dream voice’ before, nor heard of it. I took it to be the voice of my Subconscious. About a month later, I verified this assumption to be correct, after reading about it in the book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self.)
