As a general rule, I don’t discuss dreams. Yes, it might have been exciting. No, I don’t think it would make a good plot for the next Star Trek movie. Your dreams mostly star Amanda Tapping for one thing.
So normally I wont tell you the boring details of my dreams, for fear of having you reciprocate. But last night I had my third lucid dreaming experience and it was very fun.
Well last night, as I raced my office chair down a hill, I hit a bump that launched me high into the air. As I fell, I recognised that I’d been in situations like this before and I usually wake up very soon. This time, instead of crashing - I flew. Like Nathan Petrelli from Heroes. And I could fly wherever I liked.
I woke up then - stupid dead arm - so I never got much further than that, buy boy was it fun while it lasted. I woke up grinning!
I don’t think I can strictly call it lucid dreaming yet - as I only ever fly, and I always wake up very soon after I start. But before those seconds are up, the feeling of freedom and control is amazing. Now I’m off to re-read how to lucid dream. Are you gonna join me? Or have you already done it yourself?
