Silent Lucidity

Like many abnormally creative people, I tend to experience vivid, bizarre dreams. Of particular note in my case:


  • Serial Dreams (where settings and characters from a dream resurface in successive nights, almost like a television miniseries - telling an extended story that can stretch across the course of a week or so)


  • Advice Dreams (where I dream of conversations with a sarcastic, vodka-swilling thirtysomething-looking woman who calls herself my guardian angel (who first appeared to me when I was about 22) and we banter through dilemmas I am facing.)


  • and most disturbing ...

  • Oracle Dreams (where I dream of specific events that haven't happened yet - which at times I've tried to deliberately subvert, only to witness the events play out exactly as I had dreamed it.)



Will write more about this a bit later - but I am curious about your experiences.
