Ah, to Lucid Dream

I had never had a lucid dream before last night. I had heard about lucid dreaming and it sounded like a similar phenomenon to a drug trip experience with the consciousness altering disruption of normal reality. Lucid dreaming is where you have a dream in which you are aware that you are dreaming. The huge mega bonus thing that is also true is that sometimes you can control what you are doing in the dream. The dream doesn’t just happen, you create it. The more I think about it, the more it sounds like the account of someone who has taken psychedelics and for me (not having had that experience) equally unrelatable…Until my dream last night.

It started off like a flash of awareness, almost like a time transport flash. Then, bang I was in it. The scenery wasn’t exactly clear, lucid, as I’d expected…I won’t bore you with the details of the dream, they are not important. Let’s just say it was pretty hedonistic and really freakin’ ecstatically incredible to behold. In that state, you are literally writing the script as you are doing it. It’s magical. And, it is crazy sounding, but you could do anything: fly, eat a pound of fudge without getting sick or full or whatever, have a day in the life of Taylor Swift, or climb the Eiffel tower like spider man. What possibilities.

The thing about lucid dreaming, the best part about it is not actually what you do it’s the fact that you could do anything. Yeah, I know it sounds crazy. It was crazy to me too, until I had the experience. Like I said, the events themselves are not really the best part. The best part is the feeling and then the experience that you can do anything you imagine; it’s very surreal and orgasmic. The experience also reminded me of how our perceptions of our usual reality may also be skewed, like I wrote about here: Virtual Reality

With lucid dreaming, it’s like you’re instantly living whatever you imagine. Although I guess that’s what we do to some extent anyway through our decision-making process (except within the laws of physics). I hope that one day you experience a lucid dream- from what I have read most people do in their lifetime- though they are still poorly understood. When it happens, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity; for once you truly will have no limits on what you can do. The saying is true: if you dream it you can do it.

    “The thing about lucid dreaming, the best part about it is not actually what you do it’s the fact that you could do anything.”

    Oh, yes. ” “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.”
