Lucid and Controlled Dreaming
I decided to learn to how to recall my dreams after hearing endless dream stories from others. I would hear people describe their dreams in incredible detail. Their descriptions were so animated and contained so much detail and emotion. It seemed like everyone was dreaming...except me.
I knew I was dreaming like everybody else was, because it is widely known that we all dream. Even with this knowledge, I could not remember anything from the dream world. After doing some research into dreaming and dream recall, I decided to get a lucid dream mask. I chose one that used flashing lights and programmable sounds that were activated when the sleeping subject enters REM.
These lights and sounds are designed to alert the sleeper in a subtle way that they are experiencing REM sleep and potentially dreaming. My results were immediate and almost overwhelming. I found myself in a place that was so unfamiliar to me. The rules of nature were nonexistent and I knew that I was experiencing the elusive dream world for the first time.
I awoke after a few minutes and began writing down everything I experienced in this new landscape. At first, I could not get enough. All I wanted to do was sleep, dream and see what was in store for me in this alternate reality. I had fun! In my dream state, I would say bring it on, and go with whatever was next.
Additional research revealed that there is much more to experience in the dream world than simply being aware of the dream. I learned to control my dream environment...without the mask. I could become aware that I was dreaming whenever I wanted to, and do anything I could come up with without limitations. My imagination was my guide. The memories of my adventures frequently seemed more real than reality. Waking life seemed heavy, slow and boring compared to the freedom I experienced while asleep.
Controlled lucid dreams have helped me to answer some of my deepest questions, and led me to some unlikely research sources. When I am not looking for answers in my dreams, I become the architect of my dreamscape. I close my eyes in my dream world and I WILL the environment to morph into whatever I choose. The laws of physics do not apply. While dreaming, I can control every aspect of my surroundings and everything and everyone I create. It seems so damn real!
Here's why I posted this: Members here have expresses their beliefs and/or knowledge that we are actually living in a hologram or matrix, and that beings can enter our reality from other dimensions. Can our ability to experience and create alternate realities that are so incredibly real, help explain the nature or our physical world? Are we in something resembling the lucid, controlled dream of someone or something else? I don't know.Filed under: Spiritual, Dreams, Lucid Dreaming
