Waking Dream: I get out of work late at night, and call for a cab. I call about a dozen times before I get through. Then instead of telling me the usual “it’ll be about 5-10 minutes” they tell me to go inside and stay warm and they’ll give me a call. I start to think about how I don’t want to wait forever in the cold–going inside not being an option. Then I remember to imagine what I want to happen, instead of how crappy it’s going to be. I imagine a cab zipping up to get me and then instantly zipping up to my house to drop me off. About 2 minutes later a cab pulls up and drives me home fast enough to do justice to the profession.
Dream: Nighttime, just getting done with some kind of get together near the UI Credit Union and gearing up to go home. I raise up off the ground to fly home, but I am not focusing and so drop my computer and cell phone. I go back to the ground to pick the stuff up. The cell phone battery falls off and breaks in half. Hopefully the computer is okay. I raise up off the ground again, more carefully, and fly home quickly in a standing position. I am thrilled that I can finally levitate and fly in a standing position while awake. (Although somehow it seems like I’ve done it before.) I fly really fast and try to land slowly, I want to come down through the edges of a big beautiful leafy tree–it looks awesome under the orange streetlight–so I can enjoy it a little more. I end up coming down a little fast, landing in a crouch.
I cross the back yard and go into the front room, which is open to the outside on two sides. All of our hang out and computer stuff is there on the table. There are some other people there. They leave and I put the computer on the table. I wonder that nothing has been stolen from the area since it is wide open, but apparently it’s been fine so far. I go inside.
We are all constantly manifesting our realities. I was reading some awesome stuff on dreams here, and am very intrigued with the idea of having the dream self analyze the waking dream. There was also a lot of talk there about asking specific questions of the dream space. I really enjoy just going and receiving whatever experience that happens, or using the dream space to work out something that is sticky in the waking world. But, perhaps experimenting with questioning/being directed would be helpful.
