This is a Lucid Dream from a few months back where I was staying at my parents in the country.. the moon was massive and the air clear.. I stayed about 5 days and had a large amount of LD’s and dreams of different types and lengths.. following is the one with the most awareness and control..
I’m in a dream which starts to get quite vivid.. I’m in a hotel or similar type environment.. It seems like I’ve just been to the toilet or something.. The dream gets more vivid and eventually lucid after someone collapses on the floor while I’m returning (to somewhere) from the toilet.. Being a health practitioner and a holder of a first aid certificate I feel compelled to help this fellow collapsed on the ground.. I go to him and while doing so I raise the alarm that someone is down..
I’m about to start the D,R,A,B,C during which he pops up and seems OK… Weird! I was thinking he collapsed due to being drunk so how did he just get up again so quickly being fairly normal? At this stage I have this information given to me (kind of like in the form of a narration in a movie – but it could have come from another dream character not sure) – the info stated – This fellow had collapsed because of ice (the drug)?? Lucidity kicks in strongly following all this weirdness..
I walk with this fellow back to a table where he’s smoking ice every now and then.. My lucidity wanes periodically while sitting here with him.. At some point I decide to move on… I find myself flying into a city environment. There are HEAPS of people.. More people than I have ever seen in a dream in one place at one time.. I’m fairly lucid and here I kind of ALLOW myself to be pulled toward the area I am needed to go.. I land and this woman starts talking to me.. not sure what about but the scence starts to break down and I am required to consciously maintain lucidity (I wish I could describe for newcomers how I prolong dreams by maintaining consciousness when it waivers but best is to suggest it is much like increasing conscious awareness in waking life via conscious effort).. My lucidity is maintained and again I simply ALLOW myself to be PULLED.. this happened earlier and I consciously allow this to happens a few times in this dream.. It just feels like a pulling sensation lifting me upward and I move with this power that lifts me and places me down in another area..
Here it gets really interesting.. I’m pulled up and placed down and an old girlfriend comes up to me.. I recognise her and think “Wow, this probably a good opportunity for some healing”.. Thinking if I was pulled here it’s probably healing more for her as I don’t really feel I have issues left there to deal with.. My feeling is she has some issues as she feels bad for breaking up with me but I don’t have any hard feelings toward her.. She says my name “Dean” and as we get closer together she tries to kiss me.. I move away from the kiss and instead hug her.. I’m put off by the kiss attempt but the hug feels fine, like I’m hugging an old friend I still care about.. She then pulls out of the hug and decides to go do something else.. No idea where she has gone.. I wait a few to about 10seconds or so then decide to leave via the ALLOWING/PULLING upward method..
I’m pulled into another scene.. (I should say that in this area where I am there are dozens and probably hundreds of scenes playing out virtually a few feet from each other but all very different and seemingly quite independent.. each in their own bubble or similar).. I’m pulled over to another woman who is quite upset, I seem to know her, I don’t know where from but I recognise her.. I try to comfort her saying “it’s OK” etc.. There are broken/smashed champagne glasses sitting on a table.. The woman suggests she doesn’t know me but still is kind of blaming me for something.. (I’m thinking maybe there was a possibility to meet her in the future but the way my life worked out with my current partner meant this wasn’t going to happen).. I move to a very nearby scene but don’t remember how..
I find myself standing at a table that has a group of young men sitting around.. When I cast my eyes in at the table there are small boxes of marijuana and I am offered some.. I say something to the effect of “No thanks guys I haven’t done this stuff in a long time and don’t really feel like doing any”.. The buds are large and white and I remember thinking they reminded me of chunks of cauliflower with a fleck of green.. Even though I didn’t want any.. something in me decides that it may be good to take some for the future and I stuff my pockets with the stuff.. (???) .. I remember that I was supposed to go back to my old girlfriend to talk and see if there was anything that needed taking care of (healing)..
At this time I just made my way back to the scene and saw her but felt a pull to come back to my physical body and the scene started to go black and I found myself in bed looking at the back of my eyelids.. I tried to stay still and go back in but the desire to move was like a bad itch I had to scratch and I decided to wake up for the day..
In this experience interesting things were:
- I was able to move around by ALLOWING myself to be SHIFTED/PULLED when I desired to move
- The earlier time the scene was breaking down it was breaking down into a white fuzz. In contrast the later time the scene was getting hard to hold onto it was going black/dark and I had trouble seeing before I found myself in bed.
I’m beginning to wonder if the different colours in the example above mean different things because these colours seem to relate to different things.. White when the scene is breaking down but lucidity is easier to maintain and black before finding myself in bed looking at eyelids.. The scene turning black may be an early indication that we are about to come back to the physical body and therefore may allow us to prepare for further OBE exits earlier than we would if we fully come into the physical body and feel the body’s density (which can be followed by vibes and exit).. but for me sometimes this maintaining stillness/waiting for vibes is fairly uncomfortable and I often HAVE to move..
