So last night after about 4 hours of sleep, I woke up and did a few little things, went to the bathroom, lit some incense, and then went back to bed. As I was falling asleep, I started to observe dream images coming in and out of my awareness. Once I felt that one was strong enough, I just got up and fell off the end of my bed. I was now in lucid dreaming.
I was in complete darkness, which happens to me a lot when I exit my body, and so I started deepening techniques untill I could see. Here’s the interesting part: I’ve been wanting to do an OBE “test” for a while, and so before going to bed that night I had shuffled a deck of cards and put one high up in my room where I couldn’t see it (I hadn’t looked at it). As soon as I could see after deepening, I climbed up and looked at the card. What I saw was the 8 of diamonds.
After doing this I jumped out my window and explored a “lucid dreaming” garden. Two alien-like creatures drove up and pulled out guns on me, but I disarmed them quickly. I stole their car and drove around crashing into things for fun. Then I had a false awakening. I was back in my room, but had woken up in a standing position, and I so instantly knew I was still in lucid dreaming.
This time, I decided to try something else I had wanted to try. It might sound a bit crazy, but I spoke to the plants in my room, I made them grow huge and they filled my room. It looked spectacular. Then, the spirit of the plants manifested as my bag, which was strange, and he spoke like an old English man. I don’t really remember what he said.
Shortly thereafter I woke up for real, and it took me a little while to remember what I had done in lucid dreaming, but once I did I jumped up and checked the card to see if I was right. It turned out to be the 8 of clubs, so I got the suit wrong but the number right! I was still pretty happy – even though I didn’t get it 100% correct, it was close enough for me!
