Tilting my head back, I raised my eyes to meet the stars and felt the entire night sky whoosh past me in one fluid, super-fast motion.
I had been listening to an audio guide that helps activate lucid dreaming experiences when I became part of the night sky and was flying faster than I can even describe. The closest thing would be to compare it to watching a movie in a 3-D IMAX theatre.
The rushing feeling happened so quickly, in a split second, and then it was gone. But it felt awesome. Blissful.
Unfortunately, I jerked awake almost immediately from the intensity of the feeling.
I’m hoping that as I practice lucid dreaming more, I’ll become accustomed to the full tilt of the experience and be able to stay in it without waking myself up.
About twenty minutes later I was able to fall under again and this time as I looked up and to the left I saw a flock of birds in my peripheral vision and almost as soon as I noticed them I felt the sensation of being swept up and I was flying.
I was one of the birds. I feel like I know exactly what a bird feels like when it flies. The sensation was so real.
Again, this only lasted maybe a split second before I startled awake again.
I was trying to explain the feeling to a friend tonight and she said, “All that flying around, you must be an air sign.”
And I am. I’m an Aquarius 🙂
Have you ever had a lucid dream? One where you’re in the dream, but you know you’re dreaming and you can control what happens?
Tell your story in the comments. I’d love to hear about your experience.
