I have a fairly straightforward quest. In my dreams, I would like to dream through the eyes and actions of a bird.
However, it does not seem to be quite as simple as it sounds. While dreaming, lucid or otherwise, I will take on certain aspects of my bird of choice, but have not reached a point where I can say I was dreaming that I was something else entirely. I need to figure out how to abandon my current definition of self, and surrender to the idea that I am something else. Anytime I assert an aspect of a raven, my mind or subconscious rejects it, or sometimes produces an odd blend of man and beast.
I have dreamed myself to be a different person before, but never anything quite this drastically different.
Does anybody have any experience with the like, dreaming yourself to be something else entirely? Perhaps we can share a few ideas here all together?
I will bounce back here from time to time and share my progress and anything I think helps in my quest. I think I will start tonight by trying meditation and a bit of self hypnosis.
