Hello world, this is me

Postby pluginmango » 17 Dec 2013 11:55

I bet I got you singing that part, right?

Hi everyone!
My name is Amina, 21 years old and located somewhere between french fries and waffles in the ever so boring country called Belgium. I first had a lucid dream a few years ago, where I walked down a street at the city where I live and noticed something different about it. That's when I became aware that I was dreaming. After that night I became more interested in dreams, and lucid dreaming in particular. I've had 4 or 5 lucid dreams since, some were REALLY scary and exciting at the same time. Meeting my grandfather who passed away 11 years ago, for example. I really believe there are there are things which are yet to be explained.

3 years ago, I suffered from extreme anxiety disorders. I had to take serious medication and had tried everything in order to get better (doctors, specialists, massages, reiki, psychologistst), but nothing seemed to work until someone told us about a woman with a weird gift to sense other peoples pains and misery. I felt quite sceptic about it, but she actually helped me get through it! (If you want to know how, or what was so special about her I'll tell you, but for now I don't want my introduction to be half a book, so let's just leave it as it is). I'm meeting her again tomorrow :)

Anyway, I'd really like having more lucid dreams because I honestly think they could help me find some new inspiration for drawings. In my most recent lucid dream, someone actually told me to write a book.

Thanks for reading!
I hope to meet some interesting people here :D

Not really. I imagined you to be a smirking Kevin Spacey lookalike with a voice and accent like that of Frank Underwood in House of Cards, saying in a cold monotone: "Hello world, this is me..." - just kidding! :mrgreen:

I really believe there are there are things which are yet to be explained.


No doubt. The "yet" is very appropriate in your statement. It's not even a matter of belief. Scientists are humble enough to admit that they don't have the answers to everything. The hunt for a theory of everything (or a theory of anything as some would put it) continues. :ugeek:

Interesting! Do tell us about this woman. How did the meeting go? I'm asking so you can reveal the details now. ;)

Wow! You know what? I'm writing a book about lucid dreaming. And I'm an artist too who uses lucid dreaming as inspiration. Some of my lucid dream art is displayed in this Forum! To me, lucid dreaming is a godsend because now I never run out of ideas. The artist's block never occurs now that I know there is so much to unlock within my mind. Creativity never ceases as mind stuff constantly evolves. :)

Thanks for the reply, Summerlander! :D

So to tell you about the woman.
I had never met nor spoken to her before, so she didn't knew who I was until I went to see her. The first thing she asked me to do was to stand before a white wall so she could read my aura. I had to close my eyes, because she felt awkward staring at me like that :p She's a very warm and kind woman, rather small and in her mid 40's. Anyway, as I stood there, she said to me "You're a very kind person, really good with people, but you underestimate yourself. You don't feel confident enough, though you shouldn't be because I believe you're really creative and you should explore your creativity a bit more. I also believe you get a lot of help from "the universe". I didn't really know what that last part meant, but I didn't say anything until suddenly she said: "Oh, there's someone next to you" and I thought "Heeeeeere we go. Some vague paranormal bullshit." She continued: "He's a tall older man, very charming and very caring about you. I feel some kind of family bond. Do you often feel a pain in your left ear?" I said yes and then she told me it was because of him. Apparantly, he was constantly trying to reassure me that everything would be okay and that he was there for me. Then she said: "He says his name is Maurice." I was shocked, 'cause that was the name of my grandfather who passed away 11 years ago. I totally believed her then.

She told me she could feel other peoples pains, emotions, previous lifes by just putting her hands on you. She would first take a look at someone's chakra's to see if they were still fully functioning (mine were all blocked or twisted) then she tried to channel the negative energy into the earth and positive energy back into your body. While she was doing this to me, I felt really warm, dizzy and my stomach was making all kinds of weird noises (though I had just eaten :p)

I'd love to read your book and see your art :D My drawings are rather basic, though. Just some sketches, but I'd really like them to be more vivid.

Anyway, nice meeting you, Summerlander! :D

Nice to meet you too! ;-)

About the woman. You should be suspicious about anyone who makes vague statements which could in fact apply to anyone. You should especially suspect those who ask questions and then "confirm" something with an answer.

Often these people are quick to confirm the hits while skilfully dismissing the misses. They can be very obervant with excellent mental acuity. You'd be surprised at how they can guess which part of someone's body is in pain just by observing body language.

Tricks of the trade that you'd be unaware of. Tell-tale signs are questions followed by info that you are apparently unaware of. This woman is probably twice your age, lived, and experienced in trickery. Beware of cold/hot readers, the Forer and the Barnum effects.

As for white walls and seeing colours around peoples heads. Just tricks based on human anatomy and the sight mechanism where wavelengths of light are concerned. Nothing paranormal. You can even read your own so-called "aura." Get yourself a mirror and sit against a white wall. Stare at your forehead or between your eyes for about a minute (sometimes just over 60 seconds) and with your peripheral vision notice the colourful halo that emerges. For best effects do it in dimly lit places.

Chances are that she someone obtained the name Maurice without your knowledge by conventional means or she had a major coincidental hit. Think hard about how she could have got it. Look back.

In essence, as much as we want to believe in communication with the dead, be careful is all I'm saying.

Sweet lucid dreams, my friend! :-)

She hadn't asked me any questions yet, nor did I tell her anything about myself or the problems I was having. As far as body language concerns, I don't think anxiety disorders can be traced through body language. In fact, people who didn't know me, wouldn't ever have guessed that I was ill. Anxiety is a pure mental problem and I was trying hard not to let anyone notice I wasn't feeling my happy cheerful self anymore. The only people who knew, were the ones closest to me.

Throughout my "healing process", as she liked to call it. I had to lay down, under a blanket while she layed her hands on top of my chakra's, so all this time she couldn't really see my body.

Scheme or not, this woman is the only one who was capable of helping me and I will forever be thankful to her :)

You would know the details better than me. There are many skilled frauds out there who can spot when people are stressed even when they try to hide it. Because of facial expressions, some individuals can even know what your subconscious gives away better than you.

Many frauds out there. Sure, this woman isn't necessarily a fraud, but she could also be deluded in her craft. I'm sorry if my scepticism is a little aggressive but experience has taught me to keep my guard up.
