Before I leave the woods today to head into the city, I wanted to share a thought with you all.
Universe is so Amazing!
I know, nothing new in that statement…..lol
The reason I say this is because of the synchronicity of seeing a post on Seeker Project 4 Spiritual Exploration’s Facebook page today. They shared the following……..
“I catch a glimpse of a dream as I awake, and I realize only then that it was just dream. I write it down in my journal, because it is interesting. I wonder if that is what it will be like when I awake from this dream called life? Are we dreaming within a dream?” ~Guru Tua
The reason I find this so synchronistic is because just two days ago I had a thought of writing a few words about the use of Lucid Dreaming as a tool for teaching us how to better Consciously Co-Create in our Daily “Real World” Reality.
Lucid Dreaming is the ability to be aware of the fact that you are dreaming when you are in the Physical Sleep/Dreaming State. Learning to “Wake Up” in your dream is the first stage of Lucid Dreaming. In the Advanced stages of “Lucid Dreaming”, you can direct the course of your dream and its outcome. In this Advanced stage of Lucid Dreaming you basically write the dream as it is occurring.
There are many good books, videos and web-sites dedicated to the Art of Lucid Dreaming, so we won’t go into the steps of learning this process now. Just know if you are interested in learning more about Lucid Dreaming and how to do it, there is much help available.
Now back to the sharing from Seeker Project 4 Spiritual Exploration.
I would have to say…… as for waking from this Dream we call “Reality” it is very possible we have a larger Dream Journal in another Dimension in another Reality in which we will/are writing the details of this Dream. I also see this question as an impetus to spur the use of “Lucid Dreaming”.
The use and mastery of Lucid Dreaming has the ability to show us exactly how it is we can Create our own daily Reality in a much more Conscious manner. For when you see and understand that you can control where and how you move, react and even what you dream about in your sleep, and then make the correlation that the Reality of what we call the “Dream State” is no less real than this “Waking State” we term “The Real World” you easily make the cross over into understanding Creating “Reality” in the waking “Real World” state works the same way.
I want to share an excerpt from a book I have been writing for the last ump-teen years! It is entitled “DragonKrone”, and is the semi-autobiographical story of my journey into opening to and assimilating Multi-dimensional Aspects of Self into a more cohesive whole.
I really think my Guides have spurred me to begin sharing bits and pieces of this book with others in an attempt to prod me to finish it. But that is fodder for another article for another time!
At this point in the story, Niecey, the main character, is at the home of her newly found mentor; an old woman (Noni) she meet when she accidently discovered her house deep in the woods while hiking.
Niecey has been telling Noni about dreams she has been having and how they leave her with a disconcerting feeling.
“But the dreams, they all seem so real. And it’s even more than just that. When I wake up from these dreams it takes me forever to figure out where I’m at, and who I am. Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong in my own body. My dream life feels more real than this life does. I don’t really know how to explain it any better than that. It’s just an odd feeling, and sometimes it scares me,” Niecey explained to Noni. “Sometimes I wonder if I woke up in the right place, as the right person; how weird is that?”
They continued to walk the garden in silence as Noni deadheaded spent flowers. For Niecy the time passed as an eternity, but still there came no response from the old hag. Indeed Niecey began to wonder if Noni had even been listening. A few more steps, a few more seedpods stuffed into the pockets of her tattered apron, and the old woman reached for a nearby bush and plucked one of the beautiful white, sweetly scented flowers from its perch at the end of a glossy green leaved branch. Handing it to Niecey she asked, “Do you smell that?”
Raising the angelic bloom to her nose, Niecey inhaled the fragrance emanating from the flawless blossom. Its scent so enchantingly sweet and pure, the essence of its aroma seemed almost spiritual. Closing her eyes and taking in the delicate perfume a second time, she rode the waves of contented bliss into her own center to a safe and peaceful place deep inside.
“Do you smell it?” Noni asked again.
The sound of the old woman’s voice jerked Niecey out of her inner world. “I’m sorry, what did you say?” she replied.
With a telltale grin on her face broadcasting to Niecey she already knew the answer, Noni repeated, “Do you smell it?”
“Yes, it’s wonderful. Gardenia, isn’t it?”
“Yes,” Noni answered, nodding her head. “Let me ask you. Is it real?”
“Is what real?” Niecey asked a bit confused.
“The flower… is it real? Can you see it? Can you touch it, and hold it, and feel it in your hands?”
A bit dumbfounded by the obvious answer to the question, Niecey answered, “Well, of course it’s real.”
“And the aroma… is that real too?” inquired Noni.
Raising the flower to her nose and inhaling the intoxicating fragrance once more, Niecey answered, “It smells real to me.”
Turning back to her task at hand, the old woman resumed deadheading her flowers. With loving hands she reached for another seedpod and carefully plucked it from its drooping stem and gently placed it in her apron pocket alongside those already safely stashed there. Running her hand along a large feathery fern leaf, she asked Niecey, “Then tell me… how is your dream different?”
Bewildered by the question, Niecey asked, “I don’t understand. What do you mean, how is it different? Dreams are… just that, they’re dreams. This is real,” she said motioning with the flower in her hand.
Pausing again, the hag turned and faced Niecey. Staring her straight in the eyes she asked, “In your dreams, what do you see? If something grabs your attention, can you focus on it and see it in detail?”
“Yes,” answered Niecey.
“In your dreams, can you pick an object up and hold it?” Noni continued her questioning.
“Yeah,” answered Niecey timidly, feeling a bit unsure of herself.
“And in your dreams, can you feel the object you’re holding in your hands? When you find yourself in the Inner Sanctum in ritual… can you smell the incense?” asked Noni.
“Yeah… I can,” Niecy answered, amazed at the thought.
“Then please, explain to me how that is any different than holding and smelling that gardenia in your hand right now,” Noni challenged her.
You can see by Niecey’s experiences how the Dream State Reality and The Real World Reality are really no different. The only real difference is our perceptions and beliefs of there being a difference.
Well, I have to go get ready to head to the city now, but I hope this little sharing has given you something to think about and helped you to begin to see that Co-Creating our New Future Reality really is a possibility that grows closer to manifesting into our Physical Dimensional Reality ever day, in every moment.
Check into the use of Lucid Dreaming as a tool to move these two Dimensional Realities closer in proximity. Maybe it is a tool that will work for you.
