Here is where I might lose some of you.
Long before marriage, children, career, and home ownership. I used to have hobbies and interests. I know right?
And one interest can be considered a little weird.
I was fascinated in the subconscious mind; Lucid Dreaming, Astral Projection, and O.B.E. (out of body experience)
Lucid dreaming is the ability to become aware that you are in a dream while dreaming. If you are good enough at is you can manipulate your dreams.
Astral Projection and O.B.E. was essentially the same thing. The act of separating ones mind/consciousness from your body to explore other realms. We will take that down the road
Still with me? OK.
This month I start working on my goal of achieving Lucid Dreaming. It can take some time so I wanted to work on making the process a habit. I know that result can take longer to accomplish.
So one resolution is wear my sleep mask. I purchased a sleep mask last year called the “Remee – REM enhancing eye-mask” (REM stands for rapid eye movement. Which is the part of sleep cycle where dreaming occurs)]
The Remee is basically a blindfold with a few circuits inside. Under the blindfold it “emits light patterns that can appear as visual amonalities in your dreams to trigger lucidity”. That means that if you see these patterns in your dreams it should help you realize that your dreaming.
Imagine if you could control your own dreams. What would you do? Where would you go.
It kind of like being the “One” of your own “Matrix” When Morpheus says to Neo, ” When the Matrix was first built, there was a man born inside who had the ability to change whatever he wanted, to remake the Matrix as he saw fit”
Would you fly away? Would you swim under water? Would you practice tennis ? As one lucid dreamer reported doing.
So far his month I have practiced wearing the mask over night. It takes a little getting used to. Now that I am used to wearing it. I will work on my ‘Dream Recall”. Step one is to keep a dream journal as soon as I wake up
I will keep you posted on my progress
