Realistic Dreams, The Good and the Bad
I’ve made two posts today about really realistic dreams that I had, one of which was a real nightmare, and the other was just strange and unsettling. I don’t like those kinds of dreams at all. Thankfully, I don’t have too many of them.
What I like are the good ones. Of course, I don’t have too many of those either, in the super-realistic sense anyway. But when I do, wow! They can be so much fun! I once had a dream about Publisher’s Clearing House coming to the door and awarding me that big check, and I really felt every bit of the excitement of it. When I woke up and I was in my bed rather than in the living room holding a large cardboard check, I was a bit sad. it had been an amazing dream though.
I’ve had a few other really good dreams, ones so good I almost hesitate to share. I’ve been dreaming about a mystery man for many years, and I’ve had a few dreams that left me to wake in… well… let’s just say a very intense state of physical and emotional joy. If you can’t read between the lines on that one, ask someone to explain it to you. [grins] Those dreams are pretty fabulous, and I wouldn’t mind having more of them.
I have tried over the years to do more lucid dreaming, and I have worked on techniques to increase the intensity of my dreams. It has its up sides and down sides, obviously, but I think overall it’s a good thing to do. I’ve worked on it so that I can visualize better, and hopefully manifest more effectively. I’ve slacked off in my practices lately, but the recent vivid dreams make me think I need to get back to it.
There are actually quite a few techniques out there that will help you improve and control your dreams. One of the things I need to get back to working on is reading in my dreams For most of my life I have been aware of words in my dreams, but I was never able to read anything, even a street sign that I should have recognized. I started working on it and was actually able to begin reading wirds on signs and in books that appeared in my dreams.
Do you now, or have you ever, done any exercises or used any techniques involving dreams? do you work to have more vivid dreams/ Have you taken steps to avoid nightmares? Can you remember your dreams?
