‘Awake’ is Sometimes Too Vague #2 - Inaccuracies?

An English translation of the German lucid dreaming blog series by Alexandra Enns.



Inaccuracies(?)

Dear dreamers!

If you have already experienced lucid dreams, you will probably agree that the dream always has a surprise for the seeker.


In my opinion, these lucid dreams are the best since you often have to reconsider your views or your behaviour afterwards and therefore the tide of your potential for growth is not stemmed. Besides, you might discover there is a “secret zone” between expectation and the actual outcome; the dream does not always meet your beliefs or connotations!

Read about an unexpected lesson I learned in this entry:

Nothing happens(?)

I wake up shortly after a lucid dream and then slip right into the next (DEILD).

Now I stand in complete darkness, at a window, one hand pressed against the glass.

Why not pursue my goal now?


So I announce confidently:


"Show me the formation of a star from the perspective of a hydrogen atom!"

Contrary to my waking ideas, "to be transported somewhere and to be tossed around with other atoms in a solidifying gas mixture”, nothing happens, except for the direct illumination of numerous stars on the dark horizon.


I look at the bright sky in wonder until I wake up ....



Comments:


In retrospect, only after regular journaling did I notice that the dream had not been wrong at all! I had already classified it as “ineffective” when I wished the ground would open and swallow me up!


Although I had secretly wished for a “spectacular result”, the dream had chosen an alternative (but also a correct possibility).


What was my request again?


"Show me from … a hydrogen atom ..."

Where is hydrogen available?

I should have known better while awake. (1)


Of course in a gas mixture that surrounds us (air)!

Then, of course, the molecular hydrogen in our body ... What a “dramatic perspective” I've chosen here ;)


No way - no nebula in space!. Keep it simple - without changing the location!

And if you want another solution ...


Reformulate your goal, and keep on playing with your expectations, so you (probably!) achieve your “overwhelming outcome” or simply accept the result (as I did).


By the way, the dream heaven was fantastically beautiful, so I felt more than remunerated ;)

Dream mindfully and lucidly!

1. In my mind, I heard my chemistry teacher say: Alex, how could you do that! (And his favourite comment immediately afterwards: Do not roll your eyes! - after hashing and rehashing 'simple chemistry topics’ in class ;)


Scientific Background


In our Milky Way stars are formed in dark densities of gas and dust; one of the best known is the so-called "Orion Nebula". For the first star generation, only hydrogen and helium were available.
