I'm half-asleep in bed, aware of fleeting dream images behind my closed eyelids. I start saying "I'm dreaming" in my head and shape the hypnagogia into a view across a lake.
I place every detail in my mind's eye: the stillness of the water, the distant trees on the horizon, the twilight of the sky. I imagine my whole body in this space and it soon "pops" into existence and becomes a lucid dream.
I cement my lucidity and breathe in the night air. It is beautiful. I must be somewhere in Scandinavia and this gives me the idea to summon the auroras. I shout: "Show me the Northern Lights!"
They fade in slowly at first, then grow intense blue and green as I point my finger at the sky and start sweeping the colors around like a canvas. It's difficult at first so I say my intention out loud: "I'm painting the sky!"
It becomes much smoother and easier to control.
I imagine my finger contains the light of a star and I shoot brilliant white light into the sky like firing a proton gun from Ghostbusters. The starlight melts into the auroras, now a permanent feature of the heavens.
Finally, with my starlight finger I create a bright white wormhole in the sky to teleport me to the next dreamscene.
