I remember standing in a gravel car park outside a pub. A pub I had just been inside to look around that was full of real people, drinking, and laughing.
There was a car in one of the spaces. I’m not good with cars so I’ll not even guess what kind it was, but it was just lying there, waiting.
Because I was lucid I knew I was going to jump in and drive it. The car was in my dream, so officially, it was mine.
After a few circles in the car park I got 5 minutes down the highway causing carnage on the road before I suddenly felt my consciousness shift from the car to my bed.
I don’t even have a car
I got rid of my last car a long time ago, but that didn’t mean I couldn’t drive one in my lucid dream. It didn’t stop me from driving a hovering car over the water a few months previous before jumping out and flying away, just because I could.
That’s one of the most exciting things about lucid dreaming.
Level playing field
It doesn’t matter if you’re poor, rich, young, old, smart, or not. Once we’re lucid we all have the power to do anything we want with things we couldn’t dream of in the real world.
Poor people couldn’t get near a fast car in the real world, but in their lucid dreams they can drive one as fast as they like. They can eat a feast, or they can go anywhere and see anything the world has to offer.
Millionaires can pay all the money they want, but they’ll never be able to fly while looking down at their feet dangling below them as the wind blows in their face. In a lucid dream they can fly like Superman and so can anyone else.
What do you give the person who has everything? Teach them about lucid dreaming!
We’ve all got an equal shot
The person(s) who put the most work in will reap the most rewards. If you don’t put the work in you might have a few lucid dreams per week, or month. Put more work in than everyone else and you might have a few lucid dreams per night.
What you need to realize is that you can have anything you want, no matter what you have right now. When you go to bed and close your eyes at night you can travel to anywhere in the world, universe, or your imagination (pretty mental worlds, some with giants carrying hammers).
Once in the real world
But you can’t really guess what something will feel or taste like in a dream. If you’ve tasted the greatest ever spaghetti bolognese in real life you can eat it in your dreams (I prefer cake).
If you’ve never tasted spaghetti bolognese in the real world your brain can’t guess what it tastes like. Your mind is great at recreating things, but you should really experience something once if you can.
Or do you need to?
I was once on a ship and it was sinking, so somehow I ended up in this little helicopter and I became lucid before I took off. It didn’t look like your standard helicopter, but I still got great pleasure from flying it away from the ship and through the sky.
I’ve never flew a helicopter before and it still felt real to me. It’s a memory I’ll cherish because it was so cool. Don’t get too hung up on never having tried something in the real world before you lucid dream it, but it’s better if you do, within reason.
I’ve also never jumped out of an airplane on a snowboard, but after tumbling about in the sky I still managed to land on the mountain without breaking any dream bones (I then lost lucidity and the rest of the dream was just crazy).
The power is in your hands
There are millions of you out there and we can all do things that defy belief in the future. We can all become great lucid dreamers together and have the time of our lives every night.
It doesn’t matter where you come from, how much you earn, or what you believe in. You need nothing except a willing mind and hard work (plus if you’ve tried things at least once it always makes for a more realistic lucid dream).
Anyone’s life can be made a thousand times better – starting now!
