Being held down by physical appetites, material ambitions, worldly philosophy. Weighted down by worldly experience.

I had a very fun dream last night. I was in a dimmed lit room with others(only recognize one person, someone who is like a little brother to me) & the room itself looked like it should have an indoor pool. The ceiling was slightly domed & it looked like a galaxy(stars everywhere & space of lavender/pink/deep indigo). I was grabbed by a force & I began to float around the room, going around in circles from the top of the room to the bottom(never hitting the ground). It almost felt like I was swimming, while I had little control over where it would take me i could move around in directions a little. I was speaking to those who were with me & they were all frightened but I told them I had been thru this before & while I was unsure of the enegry I knew we would be safe. At the very end the other people I was with started to float around too, then the scene changed.

    Laura – An expert floater with little control – that is something to be proud of. But it needs explaining so you can perhaps extend 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 gave us life and continues to express as spontaneous movement in dreams, in our breathing and heartbeat – our life. This I have given the description as the Life Will.

    While we sleep our conscious self is largely or totally unconscious, and while we sleep and dream our voluntary muscles are paralysed – therefore 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 in everyday activities; but the second will takes over when we sleep.

    This Life will can move us to speak, can spontaneously move our body, and in fact do things that we cannot do with our Conscious Will, all that while we sleep and dream. 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

    This allows for a little recognised phenomenon which, while awake also I dreams and in a passive state, allows the dream process to break through as spontaneous movement, sound and emotion, exactly as with dreams. In the past, and still in the present, this spontaneous movements and speech are all things that happen when this dream process breaks through into consciousness. Things like Seitai, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, Shaktipat, Pentecostalism, and Reichian therapy, where spontaneous movement is practiced by thousands of people.

    This allows the process of homeostasis (self-regulation or self healing) to work more fully than while in normal waking mode.

    But as you said, the others were frightened, which often happens because most people do not realise they have both a Conscious Will and a Life Will. But you have experienced it before. To learn more about it see
