Extremely Vivid Dreams Explanation
If you’re unsure that what you had was a lucid dream, chances are you didn’t. When a lucid dream happens, you’ll probably spot some very distinct signs about it. Let’s look into the tale-tell signs indicating you may be having lucid dreams.
First, let me point out that I’m not a medical doctor, nor is my formation medical related, so you should read this text only in the sense of one possible explanation for this phenomenon. Please visit your doctor If you believe you have had a health condition associated with intense dream experiences. Such medical conditions do exist and may be related to infections, vitamin B6 overdosing, diabetes, bipolar disorder, Narcolepsy or others.
Much has been said about lucid dreaming and I don’t think to be an expert on the matter, far from it. I’m just sharing my experience. Maybe everyone’s take on the subject will get us all closer to understanding what a lucid dream is.
From my experience, the person experiencing extremely vivid or lucid dreaming will spot distinct differences in relation to the “normal” dreams.
Signs Pointing out to Vivid or Lucid Dreams Being so Real
- Extremely Graphic
- Very Detailed
- Extremely Vivid
- Information Seems to be Coming From Somewhere Outside The Mind
There’s usually no fuzzy or smoggy images going on.
It’s common those dreams have very intricate plots, events, machinery or locations. Things going on in them are somehow different and strangely extremely detailed. Sometimes they are even full of revealing truths.
The sounds, feelings, smells, interactions and events are really well defined.
When applicable, the information conveyed to us in the dream does not seem to come from our amazing mind’s ability. Certain things in those dreams seem too outlandish for our amazing subconscious mind to think. Somehow, some information seems to be coming from somewhere outside ourselves.
The Difference Between Vivid, Lucid Dreams And The “Normal” Ones
In my case, I’ve had occasional lucid dreams, but I almost absolutely know the difference between a vivid and a “normal” dream. They are two distinct things, and my mind seems to spot the differences during and after the dream.
They are very different on so many levels that it becomes evident to distinguishing them out. In my case, extremely lucid dreams can come and go, but when they do, they happen multiple times in one night or multiple consequent nights. This happens rarely. When I have lucid dreams, they may begin shortly after feeling that groggy, sleepy feeling before falling asleep. Most times when they happen, it’s one dream after another, as if watching several movies in a row during the entire night. Sometimes, there is a whole “story” that run across the different dreams. When having lucid dreams, I typically feel tired in the next day.
The bottom line is, during lucid dreams I feel like going into another dimension, whatever that may mean. I say this because what usually happens is I wake up right after the dream, think about it and find it weird. Then I fall asleep again, and “emerge” into another dream (same “story” or another).
This waking and sleeping process usually repeats itself during that same night. It’s like a dimension shift roller coaster you embark on, from time to time.
One thing I notice is when the dreams are extremely vivid and lucid, the places, events or situations are too out there, too outside our reality, or even too outside what I believe to be the capacity of the mind to think them out in such detail and different paradigms-
In contrast to the “normal” dreams, weird things may happen too, but it’s a different kind of weird. For example, let’s say that kind of dream when you’re walking naked on the streets, that’s a regular kind of strange, something your mind could usually think about.
But when in lucid dreaming, things get into a new strange. It’s stranger than strange when things seem too out there, too outside the way things would usually go. It’s almost as if lucid dreams were too outside of this world.
The walking naked example dream could be related to fear or shame. You don’t expect to start walking naked on the street, but it’s strange you can relate to and inside the realm of what your mind could think. It’s something our subconscious mind can easily be saying to your conscious self during the dream.
In lucid dreaming, important things seem to be revealed to you, the most amazing conversations happen, the most revealing things get discussed, events and happenings seem too real, too graphic, too colorful, too outside the “box.” Plus, all the events and interactions are completely outside the normal perception of the world we’re used to when awake. It’s as if absolutely everything in that dream is surely coming from everywhere, except your mind.
Things like: walking into elevators that turn into some vehicle that’s operated mechanically by its occupants. Things everybody in the “dream” use and you find yourself going like, – OK, I’m not going to freak out over this because apparently this seems normal to everyone else here.
In a lucid dream, it may sometimes happen that you’re in bed watching things roll by in the room. We may talk to or be seeing things. It seems that I’m maybe sleeping with the eyes closed and seeing things through the third eye (Pineal gland) alone. Maybe when the gland is activated, somehow we’re allowed to see things our eyes alone can’t.
It’s my understanding that those dimensions are always there, and not for our dreams only. They’ve their workings, particularities, and events. Possibly, these realities may be open for us to see and participate, but we somehow haven’t found a way to access them outside dreaming. Reality may, in fact, be stranger than fiction.
The multiple dimension theory (Multiverse) and the things outside of this world
The multiverse theory is not new and many scientists seem to support it and finding other supporting confirming theories.
There seem to be multiple universes that hold similar to completely different worlds to our own. In theory, it may be possible to interact with them since they’re all part of the same system. Maybe we just need to find ways of doing so.
Ideas that that point out to parallel dimensions and realities outside this world
- Physical repercussions resulting from the vivid dreams
- Lucid dreams seem too real or strange even to our subconscious mind
People often report finding parts of the body aching as if they had been in a fight, working out, running or having intense physical activity. But interesting enough, some people sleep together with their partner and they don’t seem to notice any activity during the vivid dreams. But for the person experiencing it, it seems real and may have physical repercussions on the physical body.
It may suggest the activity during vivid dreams can happen on some non-Newtonian paradigm or at least the mind is making them real.
Lucid dreams are too real to be just dreams. People often report the smells, events and people interactions to be a little bit too real. Some people say they don’t believe what happened in the dream to come from the mind alone.
People often report they don’t know how lucid dreams can create such incredible scenarios and architecture that they have never seen before in movies, real life or wherever. The “scripting” and the emotions of the lucid dreams are always so intricate and so well defined they can’t grasp where all this information’s coming.
For me, what happens is once they get aligned with these other dimensions we have access to them (possibly just possible during sleep, because we haven’t found another way yet).
The real revelation to me is all those dimensions, times, worlds exist regardless us dreaming them or not, so they may be happening at the same time we’re living our waking life. We may be in constant interaction with it, even when awake, but we may not be aware of it consciously. We may be blocking that information deliberately for being too outside our perception of reality. Ultimately, it’s up to us to explore and understand it.
For those experiencing vivid dreams, we can’t exclude the possibility of people living a life besides their normal waking life. The fact is they are living a pure Newtonian life during the day and a spiritual/non-Newtonian/other dimensions/remote viewing life during the night. They may both be real, and science is even supportsĩng the notion (Quantum physics, entanglement theory, string theory, etc.) so it’s up to us to try and understand what they are, how to interact with and what they may mean in our lives.
All the possible causes of this phenomena I can think of could include other dimensions, outside Earth intelligence and worlds as well as yet unknown (or poorly understood) energies in other realms like human ancestors, universal wisdom, collective human knowledge, and others.
Science has been studying this phenomenon outside the strict Newtonian “eyes” and each time diving more deeply into the energy / spiritual / non-Newtonian realm. Opening up to new possibilities may allow us to see the bigger picture and get closer to the right questions and answers.
Are lucid / vivid dreams happening to you? I would love to read your explanation and experience regarding them.
