“Life is a lucid dream & when we die, we wake.” – A.T.
Have you ever been asleep…dreaming…and you suddenly realize you’re dreaming? When this happens one of two things can happen next: either A) something alarming or frightening happens & you wake up B) you stay calm, gain control over your environment & start creating.
Now a lucid dream is simply defined as any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. In waking life, most of us reside in the 3rd dimension. This is where Earth realm exists, though Gaia is in the process of ascending. Dream space occurs in the lower levels of the 4th dimension. The 4th dimension is also the space in which the “place” that people discern as Heaven/Hell exists (on higher levels, of course that we do not usually reach until we die). The 4th dimension is a lot more fluid than the dense 3rd dimension and therefore allows for quicker creation. What you imagine literally comes to life, immediately. This is why sometimes, when you realize you are dreaming within the dream, a crashing wave (or something of that nature) will immediately appear out of nowhere and cause you to wake. This is because that split second of fear caused you to manifest something fearful, which shocked you awake. If you can remain calm in this second, you can begin to manifest wonderful things and begin exploration of the 4th dimension. (sounds flippin’ awesome, right?!)
As I said before, in waking life we generally reside in the 3rd dimension, which is a much denser, less fluid dimension. However we possess this same power of creation in the dimension as well. The process just takes place more slowly! This is why it is so important to constantly fill yourself with positive thoughts and influences, because, even in waking life, the things we think and speak, WE CREATE. What immense power lies in this knowledge!
This is why I liken life to a lucid dream. Our entire reality is subject to our perception. The more positive our outlook, the more positive our lives become. We, through our perception..thoughts & speech…shape the very world we live in. Just as in a lucid dream, if you become fearful, negative, or disheveled these thoughts manifest in the form of seemingly unconquerable challenges. In the 4th dimension its a crashing wave. In the 3rd it may be losing your job. However, when you remain positive, open, and faithful these thoughts manifest as favorable blessings that truly open you to the beauty and positive possibilities of life. The more you practice this and take note of it, the quicker the manifestations begin to happen. God has given us the power to literally create our own heaven or hell.
