Long Lucid Dream
I had many dreams about being asleep at work. Fortunately, none of them involved my real workplace. I also dreamed of being a trainee cop who simply needed to patrol a neighborhood in a squad car. This is interesting in that when one first encounters one's HGA in a dream, it is often as an authority figure and very often it is a cop. Mine was. So, now that one dreams of being a cop. It seems a logic step in the chain. Though, a bit misplaced. I have no like authority.
I can not recall what triggered awareness. Though, I was in a hardware store at the time. The trigger may have been some slight floating. I willed myself higher. I intentionally drew the attention of another shopper. He looked up at me in touching the ceiling with surprise but indifferently returned to his shopping.
I descended and look at the floor and recalled that I read somewhere that if you looked closely at physical objects on the astral they looked like they were made up of tiny dots of light. I noticed no such phenomenon. I decided to repeat my Hod experience only I was going to get past the guardian this time. So, I ran through the names in my head and I couldn't recall the archangel! Damn. Well, let's try Yesod. Double drat dram! I couldn't remember the archangel their either. I tried to come up with a certain symbol associated with the paths leading up to Hod but couldnt' do so. Netzach? Those names I knew. Instead of just saying Netzach which worked for getting to Hod. I vibrated the Hebrew god-name. I traveled but I didn't feel that 'wind' sensation I now feel is an excited astral body rather than wind. Wind never made sense to me but I couldn't figure out what to call it. I found myself in a very green park-like setting. There was a building that looked like a museum with tall columns. So far so good. I looked into the window and saw some bric-a-brak on shelves. I focused on one. It was cupid! I thought this was positive. Though, Cupid looked a little mean. I looked again and he morphed into the puppet from a "dead terrorist" comedy bit I watched on you tube yesterday. I dismissed this and walked around. There was a path leading to a pool. In the pool there were three very young girls that had just finished having sex. The odd part was that one never came up from under the water. I have no doubt she was alive. The girls treated my appearance with indifference. I can not recall any more of the dream. Focusing on the girls was a mistake. They may have been a subtle form of guardian. I have learned focusing on anything even mildly erotic in a lucid dream ends the experience for me.
The odd part is that immediately upon waking, I recalled all the names I could not remember in the dreams.
This didn't take long to write-up but when combined with the work place dream and trying to recall the proper names of archangels felt like it really took a quite some time.
