Title: It’s all Games & Wars, until someone gets lucid #5
Post by: nmdias on April 14, 2019, 03:10:05
I seem to be moving fast […] I’m exchanging fire with an alien entity! It’s an open, Mars like environment. There are shades of red all around. I feel like I’m in a game, with game characters, like it’s a first person shooter of some sort. I can move around quickly, and dodge long distances while in confrontation.

Everything looks close to waking reality now

There seems to be a sudden blank in my dream recall […] I’m in a new environment and it no longer feels alien. Everything looks close to waking reality now, very much real, and yet, there is still this feeling that I’m in a game.

I’m going down the stairs of what appears to be the inside of a building. At my left there is a soldier. I think he is with me. As we turn right, to the next flight of stairs, another soldier appears. He is coming up, and we immediately engage in physical confrontation!

I die, right then and there.

Out of nowhere, the soldier by my side betrays me! He draws a knife and stabs me with it. I die, right then and there.

Again, I’m going down the stairs […], at my left there is a soldier. As I turn right, to the next flight of stairs, I notice a soldier coming up… “This is odd”, I think to myself. I feel like this has happened before. I must be dreaming… This is a dream! As soon as I realize that I am dreaming everyone freezes, and the tension and struggle felt in the air fades away. The soldier to my left now stands still, erect, with an empty look on his face, like someone who is staring at infinity…

Noticing this, I slowly place my left hand on his right shoulder. For a brief moment, I’m in awe of how real the fabric of his uniform feels in my hand. As I do this, he momentarily jumps scared.

I now try to speak, and notice I’m unable to do so. Intuitively knowing that I can instruct myself to overcome this, I try to do so, when suddenly, the dream collapses, and I’m shifted to waking reality.

notes:

I’m no more awake now then I was before, and I feel very excited to have had another lucid dream, knowing that my skills in reaching this state keep improving.

Is this a daily blog type site?
I'm interested.  :)

It’s just my website, far from a daily entry type thing, but I thought it could be interesting to publish some lucid dreams as a way to encourage more of them.

I think that it is beneficial to write about your lucid dreams in order to encourage more of them. That and the results are a good sign that this is working for you.

I think that this LD is a good sign of progress.

I will offer a few observations on some possibly different perspectives you might consider about certain aspects in this experience. This is not definitive, just some ideas I offer for you to consider in this and future experiences. Within my own experiences, this is part of the change in thinking that I realized about certain parts of my LDs.

First, you realized the ‘game’ aspect which tells you something. It’s not a ‘game’, rather you recognized the ‘artificiallity’ of the event. It was being manufactured for you. This is what we recognize as a Simulation, a teaching event. Good; now you know the ‘feel-think’ aspect of the experience and what to look for in the future.

Having realized that, the Simulation was shifted to the next lesson and you experienced that ‘blank’ moment...the scenario switched to the next event...and you recognized the shift from the ‘alien’ environment. Another good recognition, and although you didn’t fully recognize what was occurring, you dealt with it from both a cognitive and emotional level; are you beginning to see just how well you did on an almost subliminal or subconscious level?

Then you were killed...but that didn’t automatically blow you out; you dealt with it from a NP level and re-started the LD; you utilized a distinct NP ability: re-starting and re-configuring a dream sequence. This is not a simple thing. Nice. You recognized the fact and this kicked your awareness up a notch.

The details of the next dream scenario are almost unimportant except that they served to offer a chance at full lucidity which you achieved- you realized you were dreaming. Additionally, you reached out and felt the texture of the fabric of his uniform and the fact of this kicked your awareness up another notch. What I want you to realize now is that all of these seemingly subtle realizations are actually very significant moments towards your progress in developing your Non-Physical Personality or Awareness. These actions are apparently parts of many dreaming recognition moments that are required to progress, and you realized many of them in this event, even if at a very subtle level. Kurt Leland describes these ‘dreaming levels’ very specifically in his book Otherwhere, so I can recommend that as a resource if you want to look for it.

This is how it works and it is a really cool process. You did really well in this one, so in your quiet moments be thankful and grateful and receptive for more experiences. Give thanks to those who are supporting you. Nicely done!

This is quite an insightful analysis, thank you for that. Really!
