I was having this dream last night at about 4 am cause that’s when I fell asleep. And I was trying to call my ma, frantically to tell her something and I was like struggling like my right hand and side of my face felt numb like I had been sleeping on it all night ,
and I was like scared, and then I heard like rain start to pour outside and I tried to turn the light on in my room and I remember thinking, What is the difference between dreams and reality…and i was like wait i’m in a dream and then I was like oh shit I can lucid dream so i let go of my suppression I was feeling and It was kinda scary all I saw was black and I felt like I was falling in 6 diff directions, and then I “woke up” from my dream but I didn’t open my eyes,,,,,, And I swear to god no bs, I saw this profile of a face, that looked really similar to my own like in a gold florescent outline and it turned towards me, and all I saw was her eyes and they were like looking at me seductively and it looked like my own eyes lol. and I was like whoa, and opened my eyes and then shut them and saw like faint shapes of the same florescent outline and I then just turned on my light.
It was super cool, yet weird I was like looking at myself. Ha
@thedao, the crazy part of you responding to this is I just got done watching The Waking Life. You most deff should partake in watching that tid bit haaa. Dude dreaming can not be regularized or like controlled, there’s no modifying what you dream about. It just fucking happens. Its so crazy. life is so crazy….
@cristinelizabeth, That was a wicked arse dream.
If I saw that image of myself I would imagine that what I was experiencing was a viewing of my external self in the grand sense of how I am perceived by all points of view – an honest expression of who you are.
Something different from how you can see yourself yet it is the reality, although no one can perceive that reality except for the very core of your being.
It is of utmost importance to emmanate that soul if you’re at all interested in connecting with the other beings around you.
Yeah, life IS so crazy.
@danfontaine, It was intense. It’s like, did that really happen to me? When I read it again it doesn’t even sound possible, if someone else wrote this i’d be like they were probably still dreaming when they saw that, but I was completely awake and aware my eyes just didn’t open..
But how does one see themselves looking at them? And what do you mean to emanate that soul?
It truly is, beautifully mysterious and mind blowing x)
Well I believe it. Never had something like that but I’ve had weird phases into some sort of cosmic understanding of myself and the nature of how it is that I even have awareness on nights where I have been laying in bed, attentive but relaxed, occupying my mind with none nonsense.
How does one see their self looking at them?
Well, I feel that the healthy mind is expansial and definite enough to comprise an accurate image of oneself, I think of it like an avatar or a familiar – guardian angel type deal, your own personal Jesus.
The problem is is that this meaningful being that we can feel that we are is drowned out by so much static that we hardly recognize it – it is so ecstatic when we find it.
In saying, emanating that, I mean for to be preciously aware of your majesty and to wear the crown at the same time
@cristinelizabeth, Weird.. I just had a similar experience.
WEIRDEST LUCID DREAM EVER.
So this morning I had like 4 lucid dreams cuz I woke up and fell back asleep like 6 times. It was awesome! I’ll share the best parts.
I became lucid in a field. I began to fly across the long green, grassy field. I spawned a black hole in front of me and flew threw it. I ended up in deep space, flew around a galaxy, spawned another black hole, flew threw it, ended up again at some random field. I flew around and suddenly, as I am flying, as I think of wanting to talk to someone, the background slowly fades into a jungle-like beach area. I fly down towards this woman. She said she is dreaming too (I think) and we were supposed to meet each other and be here right now(that part I know for sure). I felt a long lost connection to her. (also for sure)
Everything then faded black. I felt my room around me for a second and my body which was numb. An energy was flowing through me, vibrating, and increasing each second in intensity. For 2 seconds I was scared, but I embraced it and just accepted it. I began to feel pure bliss and starting laughing hysterically. As this was happening I was having the most psychedelic experience to date. Crazy weird things were in my vision. All I can remember and ATTEMPT to describe was these stacked, slim rectangles that kept hopping over each other and the one at the end had a face on it.
@blankey, Whoaa hahah.. I’ve had a lucid dream where I flew in a field too, and then flew to my family and like talked to a bunch of them, and i’ve had dreams of me flying through the universe and like exploding with it…
But this is crazy because I felt intense when I was trying to turn my light on, that’s when it hit me I was dreaming ( Which is also weird cause I just watched The Waking Life and the dude in there says to turn a light on to see if you’re dreaming). And I felt scared when I felt like I was feeling the intensiveness and then I let it go and accepted it and I saw weird shapes after I saw my face look at me.. It sounds like we had the same fucking dreamm!!!!! maybe I was the girl on the beach. haha
@cristinelizabeth, Some of the most far-fetched insights and amazing experiences come late at night when you’re all alone. Dreaming goes right along with that, finding yourself lost in the difference between waking and dreaming life can be absolutely wonderful.
As Alex already noted, you really should try to reduce the frequency that you use “like” in your writing (and speech), I’m sure you have great ideas to share and the quality of your expression should match!
