Through lucid dreaming, we have the power to generate any experience we desire. Recently, upon realizing I was dreaming, I chose to physically fly through the city in which my dream took place. I jumped and took off into the air, soared between the buildings, experiencing everything in full colour and first-person, feeling the air rushing past my skin and clothes. It was one of the most breathtaking experiences of my life.
For those who would like a more detailed description of the above dream, here’s one:
I was in the midst of a dream taking place in a vast city, which somewhat resembled the nearest metropolis to my house, Montreal. I was talking to some strange man about something or other when it suddenly occurred to me that I was dreaming.
Seizing the opportunity, I decided to try something I had always wanted to experience: flying. The dream was in first-person and full-colour, and to fly, I simply held the intention to fly in mind and then jumped into the air. Immediately, I shot into the air, seeing the ground leaving my feet and the bus booth getting ever smaller beneath me.
The realism of the experience blew my mind; I could feel the wind rustling my clothes and moving along my skin. I could smell the aromas of the city. I flew between the buildings, soaring, rushing past them in pure bliss… the excitement, the rush of joy, the feeling of having a “dream come true,” to put the matter somewhat playfully… it all washed over me and amazed me. I landed, and as I did, I woke up. I lay in my bed for a few minutes in the afterglow of the experience, feeling truly fulfilled and happy.
Even though this experience took place in a dream, it was one of the most meaningful and breathtaking experiences of my life.
