    Snuggling in ‘The Void’, and Giving our Daughter a Sandwich Hug - Mar 31, 2015

    I went to bed around 10:00 Pm and woke at 3:30 for Wake Back to Bed (WBTB). Read some dream journals, and did some written and spoken mantras (to visit with my daughter while lucid), and then I went to bed and meditated to state where I was consciously awake with my body asleep. Unfortunately, I did fall consciously asleep, and I ended up in a dream where I was driving a snowmobile down a mountainous gravel road during the summer. I was pulling a co-worker on a bobsled, and we were travelling dangerously fast, so she said, “Hey, slow it down a bit!” It sounded like a good idea, so I pulled into a parking lot to take a break. The road just seemed to end in the parking lot, and I found that a bit strange, so then I questioned myself if I was dreaming or not. Yup, definitely dreaming, I’m lucid! I then woke from the excitement and I was back in the void.

    I was lying in bed with my mind consciously awake and my body asleep for a short period of time. Then I felt somebody crawl into bed behind me (I was laying on my left side), and then they reached around and hugged me with their right arm. I moved my dream arm carefully, so as not to move my physical arm, and I gently held onto the person’s wrist. It was definitely my daughter’s wrist, because she has very small delicate wrists. We laid quietly for about 5 minutes in ‘the void’, and then I decided to try and speak with my dream voice, “I love you!” It worked! I was able to talk without using my physical voice. I then felt ‘the vibrations’ happening, but I didn’t want to OBE exit because I was perfectly happy just lying there with my daughter. Soon afterwards ‘the vibrations’ ended, and then I heard a lamb go, “Baaaaah!” in my right ear! Little did I know I was false awakened.

    I sat up in bed unknowingly in a false awakening, and I saw my wife, son, and my son’s friend, all standing in my bedroom. My bedroom actually appeared as my bathroom, with my bed in it. I could hear rocks rolling around somewhere. I told everybody to get the heck out because I was trying to lucid dream, and they all just laughed at me. My wife passed me the I-pad, but it looked totally different, and I couldn’t get the dang thing to work properly, so I passed it back to her and she closed it like a laptop. All these dream signs and I still didn’t realize this was a false awakening. I was getting real angry with everybody being in my room, so I laid down in bed to fall back to sleep. That’s when I woke for real! Darn, that would have been an awesome lucid dream. Clarity was picture perfect!

    In this next dream, I was at a shopping mall talking to a pretty quadriplegic, black haired girl (in her 20’s) who was painting with her mouth. I asked her if she always paints with her mouth, and she replied, “Sometimes I paint with my hair”, as she grabs the paint brush and sticks it in her hair. So I smile and say, “Oh, you’re not paralyzed?”, and she nods ‘yes’ at me. So I sat down beside her to watch her paint, then she sat on my lap. I felt a bit uncomfortable with this, but I was willing to go with it. Then my wife walked up and pushes lightly on the girl’s back to get off me! Trying to avoid trouble, I stand up and walk off with my wife. I reflected on what just happened, and I figured out I was definitely dreaming! Lucid again (DILD)! I then put my hands on my wife’s shoulder and said, “We have to call for our daughter to come!” She momentarily looked puzzled, and then she caught on! We both started calling for our daughter to join us in this dream. We walked up a flight of stairs to a landing, and then my wife became distracted with something. Then I put both my hands on her shoulders and looked her right in the eyes and said, “You must stay focused. Keep calling for our daughter until she comes.” My wife had the strangest looking glowing bluish eyes. She agreed and we continued up to the 2nd storey of the shopping mall.

    Suddenly I heard my daughter say, “What? What’s going on? Huh? How come mom’s there?” BTW, there were tons of people in the shopping mall. Then I saw a little girl walk by, I thought maybe that was my daughter, but no, she walked right past us. We continued calling for our daughter. Then my daughter came running up the stairs and towards my wife. She was really young, maybe 5 or 6 years old, with curly blonde hair. My wife scooped her up in her arms with excitement and they hugged and kissed! I ran around to the other side, and together we gave our daughter a huge sandwich hug! That’s when I woke from all the excitement. I wish I could have stayed longer to see what happened next.

      This reminds me of the time I saw someone on the news painting with their tongue....or was it something else...I'm not sure if they were paralyzed though But its pretty amazing what paralyzed people can do just to live a normal life. : D

      Hi DawnEye11, Thanks for checking this out! No doubt it's amazing what paralyzed people can do! Being paralyzed certainly didn't stop her from moving around in the dream, but she seemed to think and act like she was paralyzed. My wife got a little jealous in the dream, hehehehe, lol, Btw, doing a WBTB right now.

      This is so beautiful, Tihiti.
      I think I might have said this last time, but I am so glad that you can put your LDs to such great use and be reunited with your daughter.

      It's also great that you still ended up having DILDs, even when the WILD and FA didn't go to plan.
      I'm all too familiar with those non-lucid dreams where I'm trying to shoo people away so I can have a lucid dream.

      I'm not sure how recently you started using those mantras - have they had a noticeable effect on your lucidity/memory?

      Hi ~Dreamer~, Thanks for reading this and commenting! I use the mantras primarily for attaining lucidity. My dream recall and memory are pretty good, mostly cause I use a voice recorder and wake up lots during the night. My mantras is always, "I will realize when I'm dreaming, and I will be lucid. I will realize when I'm dreaming, and I will____(dream intent)____." For me my intent is most often to visit with my daughter. I write this mantra out 3 times, and then repeat it over and over as I'm falling asleep or doing a WILD. If I'm driving out to the cabin in the evenings, then I repeat the mantras over and over for an hour. This usually gives me tons of lucids. If I don't do the mantras, then the lucids are few and far between.

      Thanks for the detail, it's really encouraging to hear that the mantras have such a strong effect!
      I must get back into autosuggestion, it's such a powerful dreaming aid.

      Hi Tihiti!

      It's moving to see your joy of reuniting - even for a while - with your daughter!
      I know it's not just a dream - you truly connect with her in a deeper level. lucid dreams have wonderful applications from entertainment to healing at multiple levels - this is one of the most valuable ones!
      My mother in Law has also lost a young daughter and I see everyday the devastating results that the grief has in her life. I strongly believe that if she knew how to LD, she could be much better now - but she is old and unwilling to try such things...
      Keep on being with your daughter and sharing these precious moments!

      Hi SearcherTMR, Lucid dreamers are a very small group of people, and we're very fortunate to have this ability when it's needed the most. Thanks for reading this journal!
