I have written few posts recently about a book about being in the flow. I have finished reading it now but I have noticed my dreams are being more lucid – meaning that I know that I am dreaming and can actually direct what happens in my dreams.

It is a wonderful experience that has happened to me a few times in the past. It is not something I can manufacture. I suspect that the process of trying to understand more about how my mind works has something to do with tapping into this amazing gift.

consciousnessI also believe that when we are ready to learn new things, the opportunities are there for us.

    • Thanks Eric. I don’t know what prompts the lucid dreams – wish I could bottle it. I first experienced them at the time I was doing a 10 week course called Philosophy of the Mind. It taught some of the basic principles of mindfulness.

    • Thanks Peter. Interestingly, since I started wearing a mask for sleep apnea I am able to remember my dreams much more clearly. I think that maybe the quality of our sleep influences our dreams 🙂

  1. Wow, lucky you!. If I had that ability I would go over to Scarlett Johansson’s house every night in my dreams. Of course, all we would do is have nice chats over tea and biscuits.
