      Gaurdian Genie?

      Hey guys, last night I had an LD in which my lucidity was personified as a gaurdian genie. I would sout commands at it and it would carry them out for me. I said things like "I want to fly over there!" and it would fly me over to the place. Has anyone else experienced such a personification of self?

      What makes you think of it as a Guardian, when it seems only up till now to be a Slave?

      Believe me, when you get a real Guardian, you won't be shouting at it. And it won't be fetching for you.

      Now, if I am wrong, and it IS a Guardian, then you have been being most rude, and should apologize to it at your most expedient opportunity.

      I agree with that. I don't think it was as much guardian or dream guide, as a manifestation of your subconscious in the form of a genie in order to assist you in controlling your dream, though that in itself is odd, as generally your subconscious resists giving you control. This conclusion is especially fortified by the fact that it was a genie. Aren't Genies generally the ethereal buff dudes in tunics which pop out of a lamp and give you whatever you with for. But who cares, it's great that someone here has their subconscious on their side, actually helping them in their Lucidity.

      NO no no. It wasn't some sort of subconcious guide. It was the mechanism through which my partial lucidity was being active. I wasn't lucid enough to realize that I was the one making the things happen. Save the metaphysical hokum for another forum.
