A – Z Challenge ~ L is for Lucid

Lucid: characterized by clear perception or understanding; rational or sane: a lucid moment in his madness.
Silent Lucidity is a great ballad by Queensryche (a very great band out of Seattle, WA – long before the grunge era).
Have you ever had a lucid dream?  A lucid dream is one of those dreams where you are dreaming but you know you are dreaming and therefore have the ability to change the outcome of the dream.
I have lucid dreams a lot. I am not sure why this is. I remember two.  In one I was shot.  In the other one I was on a train on my way to 54th and Woodland in Philadelphia and I was on my way to meet someone.
In the dream I was shot in, I decided I didn’t like the outcome of the dream and I rewound it to begin again.
I actually plan on doing some research on Lucid Dreaming  when Crazy April is over.
Lucid: Crystal clear.

Reflection Questions: Are your goals crystal clear?  Are you lucid when you are evaluating your life and mapping your road to success?

  1. I’ve had a few lucid dreams, although only two come to mind.

    The first was a horrific nightmare in my teens. I told someone I hated her and everything turned nightmarish. In the end, I thought, “My only chance of ending this dream well is apologizing.” Which I did, leading to the sudden disappearance of all things awful. The other is much fuzzier in my recollection. I recall only thinking, “Oh, this is a dream. I remember that red scooter from the last time I dreamed it.” Everything seemed a lot less sinister afterward.

    AH! Actually, I remember the most recent one. It was the most horrible nightmare I could imagine, but I didn’t allow myself to feel the worst of it, thinking, “The only place this could happen like this is a nightmare. I’m apt to wake up any moment now.”


  2. Usually when I feel like I am on the right track, I have flying dreams and it always seems so easy. Just let go and fly. 🙂
