Feeling Far Away From My Sleeping Body

Postby Summerlander » 10 Feb 2015 13:43

Last night I dreamt about being a spy like James Bond on the trail of a corrupt industrialist (I read about Marc Rich before bedtime) when I became lucid.

I appeared to be in a strange European town at nighttime. I remembered that I needed to wake up early in order to take my eldest son to a pre-school literacy club. This is where my logic was slightly amiss. Despite knowing I was dreaming, I felt myself to be miles away from my physical body and took off in flight over the dreamscape, searching for my house in order to wake up.

Suddenly, I found myself at the bottom of my street, slowly flying just above the trees on either side of the road. I couldn't speed up and thought I would be late taking my son to school. Eventually I woke up at 7 am to the sound of my alarm.

Then I realised how silly I'd been. I could have just wished to wake up. Feeling out-of-body whilst lucid dreaming is only an illusion. This is reminiscent of Alan Worsley's "bizarre thinking" in lucid dreams (posted in Dream Science).
