Letters to The Natural Dreamer
By Sr. Oalimn
Time seems to always be an issue when you're working on a special project for yourself. I can suggest a couple of techniques for you to practice; perhaps they will work for you. Try these exercises when you are eating lunch by yourself, sitting on the toilet, taking a shower or while engaged in any activity that does not require a lot of your attention.
Start by getting focused. Relax your body, slow your breathing and concentrate on a daydream. You can daydream about anything! Sex, vacation, food, romance; find a subject that is good for you. Start by visualizing yourself as playing a role in the daydream. It is no good if you are an observer looking in. You need to be involved in the action. Start to control your actions; do what you want to do and make the daydream go your way. One might think of this as fantasizing as well. Practice this technique whenever you can and build your dream skills. Practice flying, breathing under water, self-defense techniques, or whatever supernatural power you want to achieve by working at them in your day dreams.
If you build your skills, this newly acquired ability may transfer to when you are dreaming while sleeping. The most important matter is realizing that you are dreaming. You can mentally get ready by telling yourself out loud that you will have lucid dreams. If that does not work, write it down on a piece of paper a few times and put the paper in a special place. Ask your Angels or Gods to help you, or maybe a deceased ancestor could lend a hand....
Sit down and think about how you will reach your mental being, then: give it a try. I know many people who have used these techniques with success. Remember: it takes 21 days to start a new habit.
I have been working on my own pre-cognitive dreams for years. It can be frustrating but hang in there and you will start to see results. One technique that I use is lucid dreaming. I now have a good strong hold on lucid dreaming and this helps me with my pre-cognitive dreaming. Most of my precognitive dreaming is in a form of a natural disaster.
For example, I have dreamt about a tornado. (I am not usually in these dreams, but am observing from above or wherever.) In my dream, I can remember screaming at people to find out where we were. In the past, the only information I could get out of the people was garbled and was not spoken in English. So I thought, 'maybe they are speaking to me in Enochian.' But I finally beat the language barrier by using my lucid dreaming technique. Once I know I am dreaming, then I can ask a direct question and get an answer. It was a little scary at first because I didn't expect them to talk back to me. So I am still learning to deal with it. But now, if I have a dream about a tornado I ask the people 'what city are we in?' Then, I can check out weather conditions in other cities to see if they had a tornado, or keep a record to see if the dream comes true in the future.
Unfortunately I don't have this mastered yet, but I can tell you from my own experience that the time frame between dream and incident has shortened itself a s I continue this experiment. Sometimes a natural disaster would hit six months to a year down the road from the dream, so my timing was way off. In my dreams, I am now asking for more information besides the place, and I am now in the three to six month range. So hopefully as I continue these exercises I will be get better and better at pre-cognitive dreaming. It is a skill that must be developed over time.
I am sharing real experiences with you in the hopes that it will help you figure out your next step into the wonderful world of dreams. Any great mystery is worth solving if you have the patience and endurance to do it. What may seem weird to others may be quite natural for you. I never let that get in my way. Keeping an open mind is important when it comes to different techniques with dreaming. If I had to stand on my head for two minutes every night just so that I could have a lucid dream you bet I would be doing it!
Sweet Dreams for now,
