Around 7am, the sound of a podcast seemed to wake me up. I lay in bed seemingly awake, but in the trance-like state of mind awake/body asleep. I lay there listening to the podcast which was about astral projection
Studying our thoughts and selves in a dream can help us understand our waking selves. Learning to control and manipulate our dreams when lucid can help us become more lucid while awake and learn to better control our own psyche and perspectives.
After having different kinds of experiences with dreaming, lucid dreaming, astral projection, hypnosis, potential sleep paralysis, meditation, and whatever else, I’m beginning to wonder what is the connection between them.
I notice the change. That I was pushed, now I seem to be flying. The whole thing feels surreal. A quiet thought drifts by in the back of my mind – this is a dream.
I’ve begun to notice one of the signs for me that I’m slipping into this in between state is a fuzzy feeling. Where I feel I’m beginning to achieve the separation of physical and astral self…
I still feel like I wish I had more of a life purpose and would like some direction if possible. I thought maybe I could meditate on this is in the dream. I also think it would be kool to be an ant and experience the world through being one
Whether dreams reflect our current situation, give insight into the past or future, or can be key in overcoming fears and obstacles, I’d also argue the dream world can teach us a lot about the waking world.
A huge problem is for all the sex talk everywhere, all over TV and even kids cartoons containing a love story, no one actually talks about sex and relationships. When porn is accessed with the click of a button, yet no one feels comfortable actually talking about the act…

I was with my friend Kate. She had been doing some energy work on me because I wasn’t feeling great. We recorded the session with a video camera
I slipped into a trance like state. A place where I am still fully aware of my surroundings and feel like I’m awake, but at the same time everything has a hazy dream like quality
I’m curious about how other people dream, 1st person, 3rd person, etc. And what makes a person dream a certain way?
Success at last with initiating an OBE and engaging the dream space. Definitely top 5 most incredible dream like experiences.
Somebody comments about this. Criticizing. I go off on a long tangent. “Do you never get that feeling of overwhelm? Of needing your own space?” She said she does feel that way sometimes and I said I do too. I said if we all feel that way sometimes, it seems then none of us should ever have to feel like that.

I kept waking up slightly from this dream and would then reenter back into it. Everything kept repeating itself like the movie Groundhog Day. Only there would be slight shifts each time and added fear. It felt like the dream had a hold of me. Each time I would enter back into the world of the living, feeling the comfort of my mattress below me, the dream would steal me away. Grab me and thrust me back into the throws of darkness
I’m lifted off the chair and flung across the room. I’m terrified. I can’t see the presence of anything, but I’m assuming the ghost or whatever it is has taken control of me. I’m thrown against the wall, but not hard, it doesn’t hurt. Then hurled across the room in the opposite direction into the other wall. I try to scream, but no sound comes out.
A bit later, I felt myself waking up from a dream. Wait, what? I thought I had gotten up? I guess I had a false awakening, but I don’t remember any of my dreams. Apparently, during the alleged sleep paralysis I was asleep on some level. If I had been thinking about it, I probably could have had an out of body experience
I awoke from this dream at 10am I’m with my friend Molly and a guy, maybe her fictional boyfriend. We are in a concrete building. Like a…… Read more “My Car Gets Lost in the Dream World”
I’m in a long tunnel cave with a river going through it. The cave is fairly wide open and light is coming from somewhere. Beyond the river there is also dry rock at the base of the cave. It appears to have many winding channels and open rooms.
There was a male god. All powerful. Potentially god of the ocean. Then there was a human woman. Maybe she was drowning and the god saved her or maybe they just met. They fell in love. A child was born. A male child. I was that kid. I’m 2 years old.
Dreams and reality seemed to be existing simultaneously. In my dream I was all contorted and confused. I didn’t know where I was or what was happening. Everything was dark, but I had a sense of my body and surroundings. I felt the sweat dripping off of me, but I didn’t register it as sweat. Each drop turned into a small block. The blocks began collecting around me.

He asks why I was nice to him before and now we’re not friends. I tell him its because before we were just friends. Then he started hitting on me and I’ve told him I’m not interested. Now he only hits on me and it’s annoying.
Finally it hits me. This is super weird. Maybe this is a dream. I think to test it by flying. But then I just KNOW it’s a dream and I don’t need to test it.
At first we didn’t realize it, but then Stephanie was hurt. Something had happened to the left side of her stomach. Then later she couldn’t breathe or she was really struggling to breathe. Also, her stomach started hurting even worse. We had to rush her to the hospital.

Then I say in 2014, after my dad had been dead for 3 years, he just reappeared. I started crying as I told this. It felt very traumatic to me. My eyes welled up with intense emotions. And the tears slowly spilled down my cheeks. I wasn’t embarrassed about this. In fact, it felt good to get it out
