    That pretty much sums me up....everything else is on the table(:

Posted 01 August 2019 - 08:03 AM

I recently decided to journal my experiences for my daughter in case I am not able to relate them myself when she is old enough. This was the case with my mom. Dying when I was 10. Ive been thankful that various family members have shed some light by telling me of some of her experiences, but I can easily see that having these conversations with her myself would of filled in more blanks. Not having talked about my experiences with many and keeping most to myself, I see my daughter would be in the same lack of information situation or worse. This is a snippet of my first entry. IF ANYONE HAS HAD A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE, I WOULD SURE LOVE TO READ IT. Thank you.




"My first experience that I recall was a significant initiation to what has been a life largely filled with high strangeness.
I was 5 and it was the very first time my mom allowed me to stay up instead of laying down for a nap with her. My nephew, who was also my age, stayed up as well and we were told we had to play quietly in the living room, or we will also have to take a nap. I remember we both had blankets tied around our necks. He was Superman and I was Superwoman, naturally. We took turns standing on the arm of the couch and then jumping off as if to fly, landing on a quilt piled on the floor to soften our landings. It was the second time I jumped off the arm of the couch when I realized something was different this time. I did not land. Instead, with my feet directly behind me, I in fact “flew” the length of the living room which was 17 feet and into the kitchen where I began to descend and landed on the floor with a somewhat soft thud. Two things I experienced while in the air. First, I will say, to date, this is the only weird experience I have had that FELT positive and not menacing. Second, the unusual feeling of having my reality changed forever. I could almost feel the instant rewiring of my young brain to entertain the idea that I just did something supernatural.
I stood up amazed and my nephew, running up to me, met my enthusiasm that I had discovered my “ability” to fly. (Side note: Funny also, within a year, his favorite movie was The Dark Crystal was released, jabbing me at the theater when Kira stated matter-of-factually to Jen that of course he didn’t have wings. He was a boy.)
Our reverie of my newfound talent was interrupted by my mother calling crossly from the other room asking what happened. Apparently, my landing was audible, or she felt the vibration or possibly both. We ran in her room excitedly informed her I could fly and recounted the whole experience. My mother then did something out of character. She denied this happened and abruptly turned her head, dismissing my story and telling us to keep it down. I remember feeling so hurt as if being called a liar. It took years of experiences as well as hearing the family’s issues with dark forces for me to realize why she had reacted this way. I have actually found myself reacting the same way in the past when I was not ready to deal with certain phenomenon or when it was coming at me so fast I had to decide what to address at that moment and what to leave on the back burner. A kind of ‘Not Today’ mentality had to prevail for the sake of sanity, sometimes. Or at least it felt that way. An attempt to control what you “could not”.  Again, this I can say, was my ONLY positive experience with the weird as I do recall being enveloped in a distinct feeling of love, I have not experience in the same manner again, as if it were a tangible substance. This first experience was the strange beginning to what has been largely a strange reality.”

The only time I had the feeling that I could fly was while dreaming and it is a common dream among children; also driving a car!

So what do you believe it was? Was it your ability to fly or do you think the loving feeling was a spirit helping you in your childhood game?

My sense of flying comes in dreams. People regularly have that included during their nightly coma. Flying can represent freedom, a new perspective or a sense of personal power.

I cant say for sure. If I was neutral to the whole idea of flying, which allowed me to fly, my mothers comment afterward immediately solidified the belief this was not possible for a human, unaided. The last couple of years, the whole situation really had me contemplating how beliefs affect our experiences. I have tried to remember if I felt the sensation of hands on me but I have nothing except that intense feeling of love. I guess I would have to say there was something there that was amused by our child's play��

That would be cool. I have never once dreamed I could fly (that I recall). I used to fall from high places in my dreams a lot and jerk myself awake. This usually happened when I was really tired. I remember one time I fell off a building about 20 stories and hit the concrete sidewalk even though I remembered in the dream that this was a dream but apparently it wasn't lucid enough of a dream for me to choose to fly instead of fall, lol.

I've only managed this a couple of times but if you can mentally look at your hands during the dreaming process you have the ability to "direct" your dream and somewhat control the outcome. Some also say that if you die in your dream you may not wake up but I've fallen a couple of times and things went black but I've always (to date) woken up. A little shaken and with a raised heartbeat but still alive to tell the story.

For the most part, I've found my dreams are subconscious reflections of real life insecurities when they border on disturbing. It's really difficult sometimes figuring out what lesson is being told. I think in many ways it's personal interpretation. The first step is to know yourself which has become increasingly more difficult these days with fast paced lives with subliminal distractions.

How true. In fact, I have taken steps to devote the month of September to analyze where I am at, what I want, and where I want to be. I am looking forward to unplugging from the day to day.

As far as lucid dreaming....I did not know that about the hands. That's cool. I lucid dreamed heavily between the ages of 18 and 20. I went to sleep with the intention of doing so, to have fun with it. And to see faces I hadn't seen in a long time. I got married for the first time at 20 and being a working wife with more responsibilities, I guess I let it fall by the wayside, turning my attention to other things.

Dreaming seems to morph for me every so often. When I was young, I would dream about things that would happen the very next day. Events, conversations, etc. It was unnerving. It stopped about the time of this experience of flying. There was a phase for some years where I don't remember dreaming a thing. Most recently, I'm coming out of a phase where for the last 4 or 5 years, I dreamed but never recognized one person in my dreams. Every face was new to me. I'm not even sure I was me in the dreams. I've described it as dreaming other peoples dreams. The whole topic of dreaming is fascinating.
