Have you ever watched a movie that completely blew you away?
Once it finished you couldn’t speak because it took your brain ages to process what you had just experienced. You might even say it changed your life.
For me it has always been science fiction movies, but none of the extreme stuff.
The Matrix is definitely my favorite movie of all time. It became a cult classic as soon as it came out, but why? It was just a movie about some computer hacker who jumped inside a bad guy at the end. The bad guys weren’t even anything special as far as bad guys normally go.
We all loved it because we wished we were Neo. I definitely wished I was Neo, but so did you. The storyline felt like it could be real and we all hoped someone would come and wake us up.
Are you ready to become Neo?
Now that you have access to the dream world you can be Neo. I guess I’m trying to say you can control everything. You could become, The One. Not in some cheesy way, but in the manipulate anything kind of way.
There is a problem that can get in your way. You can’t just become Neo straight away. It’s hard work and you have to learn how to master your mind.
I thought I could be The One within days of becoming lucid, but I’ve faced some difficulties throughout my time and I want to share them with you so you’ll know the messed up stuff you can go through.
I got attacked by a monster
I’ve not come up against very many bad guys in my dreams, but this one bad guy was definitely someone you would meet at the end of the level in a computer game.
Let’s just say he was like one of those hybrid dudes from Alien vs. Predator. He was tooled up with blades, which were probably his arms.
I was Neo and nobody could touch me. I was lucid therefore he was going to suffer the consequences. It definitely didn’t turn out that way, because he attacked my stomach with his blades and I woke up instantly. I wasn’t scared, but I did subconsciously react to him attacking me.
Can you learn how to become so relaxed you don’t react to anything?
Fighting gorillas and lions
This one was a little different because I was being attacked but I didn’t wake up. It was actually pretty enjoyable in a weird kind of way, so in keeping with the dream I lifted a rifle off the wall rack and I was ready to go outside the door and face them.
Then I realized instead of having super-duper dream bullets my rifle bullets were made of cork. Cork! I’m about to fight wild gorillas and angry lions with cork bullets. The rifle couldn’t fire straight to save its life, so I just flew away because I was bored.
Do you have to know precisely what you want instead of letting the dream handle everything?
Firing laser beams from my eyes
I became lucid inside a supermarket and was trying to decide what to do. There was a trolley full of milk in the distance, so I decided to fire a laser beam from my eyes to destroy the trolley.
A grey beam of light came out my eyes and hit the milk, but nothing happened. I can see Cyclops shaking his head in disgust.
I decided to imagine the laser beam was red and sure enough something did happen this time. It definitely wasn’t the explosion I was expecting. The red laser beam just made a tiny hole in one carton of milk and a trickle of liquid fell to the floor.
Do you need some conviction in your commands?
Being Neo is hard work
It seems having the power to do anything is hard to achieve, at least for me anyway. You can do anything you want, but sometimes the subconscious mind tries to screw you around by changing things a little.
It reminds me of that film with Brendan Fraser, Bedazzled when he gets to make lots of wishes. He wants to be rich and he ends up becoming a Colombian drug lord with a cheating wife.
Or he wants to become the president, so he gets sent back in time and assassinated. The subconscious mind messes with you just like Liz Hurley.
Anything can be manipulated
It gets easier. You’ll still make mistakes, but that’s a good thing because you learn from them. That is why I love making mistakes. I just hope my subconscious mind buck’s up its ideas soon.
Imagine you’re standing in a big huge massive humongous ginormous city. There are cars driving past and buildings at either side of you. What is the one thing you can do to prove your ultimate power?
I decided I would create a strong hurricane that would push everything away. I stuck my hands out and tried to push everything using telekinesis. I was channeling the energy through my mind and out my hands.
Within a few seconds the wind was blowing like crazy and it was pouring with rain. Buildings and cars started blowing about and everything was getting pushed away. It was like the dream was being ripped apart. To witness something like this in real time is weird and magical.
A challenge for you
I’d love for you to try the same thing during one of your lucid adventures. Just so you can learn how to manipulate something so extreme using the power of your mind. The next time you become lucid just stick your hands out show the dream what you’re made of.
Keep trying to manipulate something each time you become lucid. You don’t need to go crazy all the time because even the little things will feel special. I once brought my favorite childhood dream to reality in one of my earlier lucid dreams if you want to check it out.
Don’t let anyone tell you your wildest dreams can’t come true, because they’re wrong. You will eventually have the power to do anything. You will become Neo.
