Hi Rain - It is good to meet you here.
I was interested to hear of your lucid experiences, and would like to hear any description of them. But something that has fascinated me has been the waking lucid dream. It is when we learn to allow the dream process to break through into waking consciousness.
It started when I was trying to understand what makes us or allows us to go to sleep. I saw that to go to sleep we need to allow our thoughts to become random, and to surrender our will and self to sleep. So by surrendering my will and thoughts I could allow dreams to occur while awake. But the quality of them was so much better. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/the-waking-lucid-dream/
I have explained this at some length elsewhere but here is some of it:
In life and sleep we have two powerful actions working in us. The first is our waking experience based on having a body, its limitations, vulnerabilities and a particular gender. Our second is the power that gives us life and continues to express as dreams.
• While we sleep our conscious self is largely or totally unconscious, and while we sleep our voluntary muscles are paralysed – so another will or motivating force moves our body. So we have a Conscious Will, and what I will call a Life Will. The first one we have experience of as we can move our arm or speak; but the second will takes over when we sleep.
• This Life Will can move us to speak, to move our body, and in fact do things that we cannot do with our Conscious Will. As Freud pointed out this inner will has full access to our memories. It can do so many other things that are described else where – See ESP in Dreams; Edgar Cayce.
• This Life Will or motivator has been active for millions of years and we see it working all the time in animals. We are partly split in half because we are often opposed to what our Life Will in us wants. So the only way to express what is good for us is in dreams when our conscious will is largely passive.
• Life Will created your body and pre-existed you as a person you know today. It was working in you prior to your ability to speak or know in the way you do now. But of course it has fantastic unconscious wisdom and skills, as can be seen in animals.
