This is the burning question. I believe so…
Please take a look;
I’m usually pretty lucid. My level of self awareness vary. Fevers are fun! haha. I’ve found that there’s a pattern to how lucid I am and how self aware I am, when I’m not choosing to be anyway. Sometimes for months I’m completely self aware in my dreams, without previously choosing so. And then eventually that changes off and my dreams get vague, sometimes to seemingly not dreaming at all. (and of course, that can be changed by choise). I’ve also found my consumption of coffee probably had a lot to do with my states of non-dreaminess!! So I’ve moved to one cup in the morning and soon I’m going to cut that off.
I’ve had a few of the ‘spirit guide’ type dreams; had a long insightful talk with one of them. But I don’t remember the conversation at all. It was one of my most lucid dreams, I had the best popcorn I’d ever tasted >_>. And I also remember him telling me not to follow him when he left and came back. What we talked about still hasn’t surfaced. It’s been a few years since that dream. Also I remember I couldn’t see him very well even though I was looking at him for most of the dream. The shape kept changing. I had some image of him in the dream, but when I remember back to the dream, there is no image for what I was looking at.
I’ve also had (possible) OBEs before. One OBE I had I was blind for most of it. I had a strange sense of feel in it thought. Like, I could feel my whole room as opposed to seeing it, though I would get glimpses of sight. I went through a wall into another room, I couldn’t see, but I could still feel. I couldn’t make out what I was feeling very well. I was feeling for a door against a wall and couldn’t find it. But I could feel a depression a little further up and to the left. I gave up and went through that wall to the outside. It wasn’t until I had snapped back(after trying to teleport, didn’t work out, haha) that I realized that I thought I was in a different room than I actually was in. I thought I was in the room across the hall, I really don’t know why I thought that, but I did. The other room had the door was I was looking for. Interestingly enough, when I went outside I was where I should have been, I was in front of the window in the room that I thought was a different room.
Ahhh I love lucidity ^_^ (specially in dreams).
@inner breeze, i love your dream and your obe. sounds amazing.
lucidity.. yes at times im super clear, there have been times i have been able to communicate with ghosts. one time during about 6 months i worked with a spirit like that who lived in a chateau, she had no legs. she had been tortured in the middle ages. i helped her to release into the light , but it took such a long time. at first she was so very frightened! but then slowly …
but most of the time im my foggy old self. and like inner breeze i can remember my dreams for months on end, with out trying to and then there comes a period of darkness, indeed as if i have none. that is irritational. but then if i start to read my dream journals at nite and tell myself , you will remember at least one detail.then slowly they start to come back.
last nite, speaking of coffee. i dreamed i was washing dishes and i said to my daughter, hey make me some coffee and then when she did i poured it down the drain, and when i woke up i was all speedy as if i had drank the coffee. i stopped actually a few weeks ago with my cleanse. strange i dreamt this!
Anyone ever have a lucid dream where once you realize you’re dreaming, the visual aspect of the dream disappears and everything’s black but you can feel your body sensations? For example I had a dream where I was driving, and the car suddenly lost control and started flipping, and mid air I realized this can’t be real and I must be dreaming. Instantly the scene went black and I was trying to decide what to do but could only induce sensations (the sensation of falling or shooting into the air for example).
That’s really neat Ellie. I’ve had dreams of blackness before where there was little sensation. And I’ve broken dreams similarly, but I decided to fly upward at top speed(with intention of escaping the dream). The dream shattered around my like glass into sand. I felt like I was passing through myriad of my thoughts, but I didn’t try to control sensation, just kept moving. From here I went into a light sleep paralysis, some stuff I don’t remember, the I fell back into another dream.
@ Stonedragon Were her legs cut off? Or just missing?
I’ll have to try drinking coffee or something while asleep, see what happens! I took acid once in a dream. (never took it irl). Things went a little slowmo and there was slight ‘hallucination’. Just ripples in the air, like the space in the air was making deep waves. And then after that it was just kinda weird in a social manner. I certainly didn’t wake up to anything strange!
