Can a Lucid Dream Help You to Discover Your Life Purpose?
At first I was dreaming that I was in a car and I was sitting in the backseats with two people. The man who was driving the car was my uncle. It was night and suddenly my phone rang, I answered the the call and it was from someone from the company where I work. He told me that there was a problem and he wanted me and my coworker to come now (my coworker was in the car with me).
Then after I finished the call, I turned to my coworker to tell him that we have to go to the work but before I talked to him I noticed a strange thing when I looked out the car window. It was the morning! And I was shocked because I remembered clearly that it was night before the phone call.
Then an idea hit me and I thought it may be a dream. I did my realty-test closing my nostrils and tried to breath and I suddenly realized that I can breath normally with my nose closed. Then I looked at my hands and my finger looked very strange.
Then for first time in my life I realized that I am in dream. I was so so so happy I said to myself “finally I did it!” Then I remembered that I can do anything. I thought about flying so I decided to jump from the car and to try to fly.
I opened the door then I jumped but instead of flying I fell. For moment I thought that I might hit the ground but suddenly I found myself sinking in a void. And the scene started to disappear and the vision became unclear. Then I remembered my goal which was to see my higher self and to know my life purpose (the goal of meeting my higher self l learned from William Bulhman’s book: Adventures Beyond the Body).
I started to repeat mantra “I want to meet my higher self and know my life purpose.” I repeated it continuously, then the vision started to become clear again, I found my self in a calm room. The room was semi dark but it was beautiful and looked familiar.
There was a big picture in front of me in one of the walls and it looked like a mandala. Beneath the big picture there was another picture but it was small and there was an Arabic word wrote in it.
Then I sit down crossed legged in meditation posture and I closed my eye and continue to repeat:
“I want to meet my higher self and know my life purpose.” Then suddenly I start to see the room even though my eyes were closed and I resume my meditation and repeat mantra “I want to meet my higher self and know my life purpose.” I was hoping that I might got the answer but while I was doing my meditation my little brother came and opened the door of the room. He said to me, “you still meditating? You’re wasting your time” (In real life he always says that) then he closed the door.
Then after his interruption I resumed my meditation and I closed my eyes. It was dark and there nothing to see so I said to myself, “I’m afraid that I will be awake soon,” then suddenly I opened my eyes to find my self awake in my bed .
This really awesome I finally did it!
