Subject: Profound Lucid Dream I'd Like to Share--Did I meet a spiritual teacher?
Date: February 3, 2005 at 11:49 am PST

I often have lucid dreams. In years past I've experimented with flying, shape-shifting, passing through "matter," and problem-solving (by asking direct questions to my intuition), all within the dreamscape. Well the last time I had a lucid dream I decided to try something different. Here is what I remember:

I found myself in a house that looked unfamiliar. I realized I was dreaming, so I yelled "awareness now!" a few times to really impress upon my mind to be conscious (a technique I often use) so I could take control of the dream. I sank into the lower floor of the house and felt a low-vibrating presence nearby, although I could not see the person?/thing? that I was detecting. The vibration seemed to be trying to talk to me, but I got the sense that somehow it's vibrations were too low for me to understand--that the presence was not on my level. I apologized to it and told it I was unable to understand it. I yelled "awareness now" again and rose high above the house into the sky above.

Now that I had control of my dream-reality I thought about what I'd like to do. I decided: "I want to meet my spiritual teacher!" I said aloud.

Next thing I knew I was in a building which appeared to be a public library. There was a seating/meeting area in which many people were both seated and standing. They appeared to be waiting. I took a seat among them and waited too. Then, an elderly gentlemen dressed like a humble farmer came in. I just remember his face was heavily lined and he wore a red plaid flanned shirt. He began to speak and everyone listened attentively. I wasn't even listening at first because I initially felt disappointed: THIS was my teacher? I expected a one-on-one encounter with some incredible being--not to attend a group event where we all sat around and listened to an old white guy!

Then I began to listen, and my opinion started to change. He was really saying some important things. I can't remember all he said--only one thing he said that I really liked: "In order for the doors to be open to everyone, the disadvantaged must go through first." After I heard him say this I repeated it to myself over and over so I wouldn't forget.

Soon the talk/meeting was over and everyone disbursed about the library. I wandered over to a hallway where a rack containing several different pamphlets was displayed. I noticed that all of the pamphlets were for events happening at "The Other Place," as if "The Other Place" were an organization, school, or group.

So, that was my dream. I feel like I met/listened to someone important, but am not sure if I truly did meet a teacher or if he was a dream-manifestation of some part of my own psyche.
