ATTN: You might want to read MY OTHER POST
before reading this one.
I had another lucid dream last night. My 3rd documented/remembered LD to date, when attempting to LD.
This time, I was dreaming about something, but I don't remember much until the lucidity started. I believe that I was in a building, talking to a friend that I graduated high school with. I think the word "lucidity" came up in the conversation, but I didn't realize that I was dreaming, so this had no effect on my lucidity. Anyways, I fell/jumped through a window. It may have been on accident, or on purpose, but I think that it was on purpose, because in another post on this site, someone told me to jump out of a window next time I LD, so that I could fly (Credit to Summerlander
). It shattered, then I fell to the ground and got up without any pain/injury, and I said, "I must be dreaming, because there's no way that I could have survived that if I weren't." I don't think that I was lucid until I finished the sentence.
At that point, I rubbed my hands together, and shouted (in my mind) "Increase clarity" once or twice, and my same friend is standing a few feet from me on the ground. I now think that this person was this dream's guide, because when I saw my friend on the ground, it I had a strong feeling to rub my hands together and shout. (I have "programmed" my brain to place a "dream guide" in most of my dreams. I haven't programmed them with what to do, but I think that my subconscious realizes that whenever a guide is in my dream, that it places a kind of "Help Center" or "Dreaming for dummies" in the guide to help me out. This is the first time that a guide has mentioned "lucidity" and it actually actually effected me). At this point the dream goes blurry/fuzzy, and everything slows down, kind of like a mental power surge, but then only a few seconds pass and I regain lucidity. The best way that I know how to describe this feeling is when you highlight a bunch of icons on your computer and press the enter key, and the computer slows down and lags/stutters while trying to open all of the programs at the same time. That's what happened to me in the dream, but it was my brain instead of a computer.
So, after this very brief stop, I feel an overwhelming sense/feeling that behind me, I had created a vast array of different objects. I don't know if I created it consciously, or if my subconscious placed them there. It was like all of the "programs" that had just been loaded during the "glitch" I had in the dream, and they were all behind me. I had such an overwhelming urge to turn around, and when I did, all of the scenarios, objects, people, and buildings (even the insides), that I had visualized before while trying to LD, were there. I don't remember much of what I saw because my brain was trying to process everything that I was seeing at once. There was A LOT of stuff going on, so much so that I could hardly observe it all and focus on being lucid at the same time. This is the point where my mind started to slip from lucidity. Then all of a sudden, I see my friend from afar, and called out to her, and when she turned around, she had a distorted face like the one shown below. It was really weird, and it startled me so badly that I lost lucidity, and I think that is where I woke up. But in the dream, she acted like nothing was the matter, and she was saddened that I was afraid of her.
The face was like this: Her left eye (from my view; her right eye to her.) was where it was supposed to be, but her other eye was placed directly over it. Then she had a large oval/square shaped eye beside it where her other eye was supposed to be. See the attached pic of more info.
Anyone have any clue as to what this could mean? I think that it may have just been that my brain was so overloaded that it "corrupted" my friend's "file". (Yes, I like to think of my brain as a computer. It sort of helps me trick my subconscious into thinking that I can reprogram it to my will.)
Thanks for reading.
