I’ve always been a bit of a crazy dreamer – as in the actual, lay head down on pillow,cruise past the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th stages of sleep and slip into the ole REM and wait for the images and scenarios to appear type dreams.
I remember at high school the girls in my group used to ask many a morning “Meagan, what was it last night, what did you dream of”. It became a bit or a morning show and tell – or rather vision and tell. I walked them through my dreams. I could/can more often that not remember smells in the air, colours of clothing, hair, eyes, I can describe my surrounds in fine detail. As soon as I start telling it, every details floods back into my mind.
I have always loved dreaming – it’s a bit of an escape for me – its just this other world that I have. That may seem rather odd, but wait till I tell you why…
Not only can I remember every detail, I can LUCID dream – and this happens A LOT.
Now what this means for me is – I can chose to do what I want in a dream, I can rarely pick the place that I am but I can always do what I want within whatever scenario appears in front of me.
Sometimes I’m dropped into these whack situations where I am being chased by a complete nut job trying to hack me into pieces with an axe – but I know its happening and I can RUN and I can JUMP and I can go faster than you can imagine. And I know I’m dreaming – so I just roll with it and try to get away.
Sometimes I am put on an island surrounded by sand and palm trees and beautiful aqua water – and I just go for a swim and laze around hoping I don’t wake up too soon.
When I was young I always remember wanting to be able to back flip, some of my friends at school could do this and I was always so envious but, try as a might, I could never master this. So when I found out I could lucid dream, guess what I did everywhere I was.. that’s right. I BACK FLIPPED. Every. Single. Night. No matter where I was. This was pretty awesome for me and which led me to the thought that surely after doing it so many squillions of times in my dreams, I could definitely master this in real life. Well, guess again. I was/am sill as unco as ever.
I’m yet to master being able to change the place I am though, surely this should come to me as I get older as a prize for always being the “crazy girl who can flip everywhere she goes and relay the finest details of her dreams”.. that would be ULTIMATE!
Last night I dreamt I was on some sort of space battleship with a group of people and it was some crazy outer space version of “The Hunger Games” in which we all had to ‘blast’ one another with our super charged space lasers. Trust me, I’m thinking “what the” as much as you are.
We all had this common area where we went for lunch and no one could hurt anyone and then straight after lunch BANG, back into the game.
I remember the ship going upside down and I could see the sun blazing in the far distance, this giant fiery ball and I remember how it looked and I was thinking WOW that’s pretty neat. Ha ha, completely random? Yes, I concur!
There is a downfall to all this dreaming business though – I’m always TIRED, mentally. Now this may be coincidence but I honestly feel it’s due to the fact I am so active in my mind of the night. Constantly on the go, running from baddies, sipping piña coladas on the beach. Its tough you know.
C’est la vie though, I love my dream world!
Do you remember your dreams?
Any suggestions on what I might be able to try in my next Lucid dream?
