So, I had a mega long lucid dream early last night. Unfortunately, I can’t really remember too much of it… I have a bunch of jumbled, seemingly random scenes playing out in my head right now that I’m having trouble reconciling them.
I do remember having what I call “Lucid Awareness” throughout it, meaning that I didn’t know much else beyond the fact that I was in the non-physical. So, unlike my previous conscious experience, in which I had “Astral Awareness” (aka, I was FULLY awake in the non physical), this experience wasn’t quite there. This tells me that this entire experience took place in Focus 2, mostly because of all the dream imagery involved.
I do remember flying around a lot… and strangely enough, I remember blowing up buildings. I was demonstrating to the person who was with me by pointing to a building in the distance and splitting it in two. I’ve tried to do this kind of thing in the past, but had very little success… I think it was good this time because I wasn’t fully aware at the moment, so my subconscious was still semi in control of things. If I had Astral Awareness it probably wouldn’t have been so easy. With that said, I also wouldn’t have had some very strong dream imagery either… as my subconscious mind was still in full swing fueling my scene.
This entire experience felt like it took place over a good hour or so. I do remember slipping back into the physical roughly 3 times throughout this non-physical adventure. Each time I felt it was happening so I managed to keep my eyes shut as I woke, so it was quite easy to stay still and shift back to the non-physical within 10 – 15 seconds. I can’t tell you enough how good this particular technique is to remaining in a non-physical environment.
And now that I’m thinking about it… I was reading some more of John Magnus’ book “Astral Projection and the Nature of Reality” right before bed… and I remember reading something about that very thing. I remember a point where he was saying to use an affirmation of, something along the lines of, being able to wake up slowly so that I could keep my eyes closed. I guess my mind decided that the best way to do that was to become lucid in the non-physical so it could initiate that “eyes closed” thing. This would account for the rare “early night” lucid dream that I had.
Anyway, the last thing I really remember was shifting back into the Lucid state then immediately entering a false awakening where I was riding my bike by some reservoir thinking to myself, “Wow, what a strange lucid dream I just had”… at that point I had shifted back into a Dream Awareness so I didn’t realize I was STILL in the non physical. I find it funny that I didn’t make the connection that I was JUST having a Lucid Dream, and now I was outside riding my bike… LoL
This was, quite possibly, the longest non-physical experience I’ve ever had and considering that the longest up until this point was only about a month ago… I’m left wondering what this means. We’ll see what the future has in store. 🙂
