Shopping in a Lucid Dream
I was chatting to my housemate one eve and she asked me if when I next went shopping I could buy her some coconut yoghurt. I didn’t think so much about the idea but a couple of nights later I was in the realm of dreams and at some point I had that ‘hang on a minute’ moment and realised that I was dreaming, before me I saw a container that looked a bit like a yoghurt carton. I began to use my imagination to coax into a different form. I felt it becoming coconut yoghurt and I saw the form begin to transform. For some reason it retained a kind of coconut crunchy texture, perhaps in the universal mind each thing has a certain form… and in that universal mind coconut has this kind of crunchiness, rather than a creamy fluid form like milk yoghurt. I took up the carton and began to lick and eat what was in inside and it was delicious! It’s incredible the things that occur to the lucid dreaming mind. Although we may have certain things on our lucid dream ‘to do’ list… Rather than seeking into a deep question or researching a matter of deep soul substance, it occurred to me to use the experience to do some dream shopping for my friend. It is probably a good thing that we allow ourselves to sometimes play in the realm of lucid dreaming, as this encourages softness and fluidity of mind. Sometimes our dreaming mind may be caught up into a great wave of soul narrative, but then at other times we may descend to much more simple domestic concerns. The next time I saw my housemate, I told her “Oh I did find some coconut yoghurt for you.” “Oh yeah” she said. I continued “but not in this physical reality, I found you some in the world of dreams!”.
