Thread: lucid dreaming vs reality

    lucid dreaming vs reality

    I just finished reading Robert's experience of a WILD in Astral Dynamics and I am confused
    about the differences between lucid dreams and reality.

    When lucid dreaming there are certain things that differ from reality right?
    This is the reason we do reality checking right?

    What would you say would be the major differences?
    Could you really confuse between the two?

    Re: lucid dreaming vs reality

    A lucid dream is a different reality, created by your subconscious, or by the collective unconscious.
    Material reality (also thought of as objective reality) is what you see in the material world.
    When you dream you are in a subjective environment, created by mind. It can be the collective mind, and it can be given shaped by the individual mind.
    When you become lucid (and in this instance, lucidity is simply knowing you're dreaming, clarity is irrelevant) you can perceive beyond your self creations and see what the collective mind has created. It cannot be the same as material reality, because imagination is creative and equally represented, but there is usually a correlation between experience and imagination.
    Does that make it any clearer?

    Let me just add- you could rarely confuse the two- but it did happen to me once- when I got out of bed knowing it was the real time zone but it felt exactly like in the physical. I had to wake myself up just to check, lol. Turned out I was right And also in false awakenings you do that alot. Hence the reality checks (but also to get you lucid during a regular dream).

    Re: lucid dreaming vs reality

    When you're having a lucid dream, you know you're dreaming. "Lucid" means, in this case, "aware".

    It can be tricky at times and with certain kinds of experiences to recognise reality, but some people recognise and experience reality as a kind of dream, so there's also that... (Yes, I'm muddying the waters. What I wrote may be meaningless to you. That's okay. One day, it will mean something to someone, anyway, if not to you, now.)
    May the light surround you, may you be blessed. May the light surround us, may we be blessed. May love and light surround us all, and may we all be healed and blessed. And so it is, and so it shall be, now and ever after.

    ButterflyWoman, it seems like you were right- it applies to me, now mainly because it is possible to effect reality so immensly by changing ,my own vibration... Which is something I learned and applied this year (reality is kind of a "heavier" feeling and moving lucid dream- to me). And what you said defines it in words... I don't know if this is what you meant, but this is the way I see it, anyway

    Re: lucid dreaming vs reality

    Both are reality and both are illusions hehe

    But both are basically the same thing just a different counciousness.

    It happens that we confuse between them cause we don't imagine that a lucid dream or a oobe van feel that real.

    Many of us have oobe and stop then cause we think we are awake.

    For me I went to the bathroom and thought why I'm a here? Let's go sleep again laying back in the bed just to wake up and realise that I never went to the bathroom.

    U can mix them up but both are reality
