I was sleeping in a room I had never seen before.
A twin bed tucked on one of the walls in the tiny room and right across from it a painting with light shinning on it.
It was as if the light was there just for me.
The painting was mesmerizing, you felt it in your veins as soon as your eyes traversed across it.
Rocks with brush strokes so invisible that you could mistake them for real life rocks.
The painting on the wall brought back my love for painting again.
I felt the desperation inside my chest and knew I had to do something.
In that moment a man with dreadlocks who was supposed to be a rapper walked in and said he was the painter of the painting.
“I want to paint again but I have been so busy, I have not had any time.” I said to him immediately as he sat down on the chair next to the door.
“These are excuses. Here is a class you can take at the town next door.” he said and proceeded to write down the town which I have never heard of and the phone number which started like this 457- 789 but can’t remember the rest of the numbers.
You see this was the dream I had last night.
A dream so real that feels like a memory.
The dream didn’t end there.
I walked out of the room and into the main area of the house.
The view was of a body of water with gigantic rocks.
On the right hand side, the Golden Gate Bridge was hanging but it was not the color red, rather a pale white.
I remember thinking in the dream that I was so grateful to have this view every day.
I woke right at that moment.
Here in this reality it was still dark and raining outside.
My mind immediately came back here from wherever we were.
I got up to go to the bathroom.
And life was once again back.
But the dream was so real, as real as life itself.
I know for a fact that you too have had many vivid dreams.
I have dreamt every possible type of dream you can imagine.
Lucid. Visitation. Flying. Terror. Remote viewing.
The list is long. Someone asked me the other day.
“Do you think you can write one of your Star Letters about dreams?
I have seen my husband in my dreams once since he died.
I want to find a way to see him again. How can I do that?”
Dear anonymous, I believe that there is a way to call on someone who has passed and have them visit us in our dreams.
I think we could potentially control our mind just before we go to sleep and request a specific dream.
A dream may be part of the life of another you in a parallel universe.
Maybe in that other universe your husband is alive and can visit you.
I know this sounds strange and in ways very very hard to believe, but according to Biocentrism it is possible.
According to the author Lanza we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist.
Lanza also believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously.
In one universe, the body can be dead.
And in another it continues to exist.
This means that a dead person ends up in a similar world he or she once inhabited, but this time alive.
And so on, infinitely.
Imagine if that is true.
According to an article on Psychology Today hypothetically it could be possible that dreams are about what is happening in the alternate world of my duplicate self or as others refer to my doppleganger.
If this is potentially true then our dreams are portals to one of the parallel universes.
But I don’t think we can ever get to a place where we can be certain of these thoughts and possibilities. People who have had experiences of visitations, lucid dreams and out of body experiences while they are sleeping know how true all of this is and no physicist or scientist can have a true say in any of this.
As Osho says, ‘All that can be experienced is not necessarily explainable, and all that can be explained is not necessarily experienceable. Mathematics can be explained easily, but there is no corresponding experience. Science can be explained easily, but even the greatest scientist is not transformed by his knowledge.’
We are transformed by experience and experimenting. Not by theories and mathematics.(click to tweet)
So today I want you to do a very simple experiment.
This experiment can work immediately or it might take a few times.
Please don’t lose hope or patience.
Also you can email me directly with your results here.
The Dream experiment.
- Turn everything off. Tonight when you go to sleep turn everything off, your phone, your computer and your television. Take some deep breaths until you feel your body relax as much as possible.I know it is much easier to fall asleep with a book or the tv but we want to allow your mind and body to relax.
- The Immersion Now, remember a special place you went with the person you lost and a memory you had there together. Find a photo to look at if you have one. Spend a few moments looking at it. You may even have a video clip from that memory. Spend a few minutes watching it. Try and remember the details. The colors. The feelings you had. What was said. What was your favorite part. How did you feel to be with them.Immerse yourself in that memory however difficult it is.Find a way to be there without the sadness but the happiness you felt when you were there.
- The Conversation Now make sure your eyes are closed. Imagine yourself with them. Feel their hand touching yours. Talk to them in your imagination. Tell them things you want to say to them about your day. Imagine that they can hear you. Be in this new imagined memory with them as if it is really happening. The key here is that you relax as much as possible, so much so that you fall asleep. We want your conscious mind to carry this person with them in the unconscious mind and beyond. Beyond this world. This is when you will hopefully fall asleep.
- The Remembering When you wake up in the morning try and stay in bed in the position you were when you were sleeping to remember your dream. Write down on a piece of paper what you can remember. If you can’t remember it get up for a few minutes go to the bathroom and come back to bed and go in the same position for a few moments. There are many reasons as to why this helps remember the dream but I don’t want to go into them here. Just know that a dream can be remembered when your head is positioned the exact same way it was when you were dreaming.
- The Repetition If the first time the dream experiment doesn’t work get into the habit of doing this a few times each week. Turn everything off, immerse yourself in a memory, have a new conversation with your beloved, and in the morning record the dream. The key here is to believe that this is possible and to also go deep in the immersion.
I know this may sound hard to believe but it should not be.
After all, we live in a cosmos full of human beings dreaming about many unbelievable things every single night. For a reason I cannot explain we find dreaming normal and logical when there is nothing logical about it.
I have also read a lot about Freud’s interpretation of dreams and even though there is a lot of truth there his work is incomplete and very boxed in.
Dear anonymous I hope you got more than just an answer to your question.
Whether you experiment or not you need to know that your beloved is outside of this physical reality. And you will connect with him/her again one way or another. There is an aspect of our self that travels beyond the physical world, religion tried to explain it. Science tried to prove it. What we are doing here is not religion or science it is experimenting with the best instrument there is, the human mind.
Can’t wait to hear all about your experiments.
