This is Part 68 of the big “Hi I’m New Here” topic.
Keeping all the intros in one topic prevents us from having thousands of individual “hello, I’m New” topics and keeps the forum from getting cluttered up. Anyone is welcome to post here , new and old members. So don’t be shy , we don’t bite .
(please remember to not carry on long chatspeak conversations in here, we have a wonderful private message system, chatroom and playground for that ) [/mod]
So a little about me… Well I’m a very open-minded Christian who is struggling with depression and who has managed to make a number of improvements to himself. But things keep weighing me down, keep trying to draw me under, and it’s hard to stay afloat.
I discovered the 150.00 section at my library and found ways of improving my brain power, dealing with anger, and of course having Lucid Dreams. Mark McEllroy’s excellent book, “A Beginner’s Guide to Lucid Dreaming” was my first book on the subject. I had my first Lucid Dream a few days after reading it, and my last set of 4, 3 of which I remember , a week after that. Been blocked since and will post a thread concerning this elsewhere.
I’ve been recording my dreams for 20 years intermittently, although recently, since McEllroy’s book, I picked up the habit again. I’ve started to learn how to translate and listen to the messages in my dreams. I’ve found some encouragement in Robert Moss’s work, although some things like invocations and the like push the limits of what I feel I can do as a Christian. I’m not about to summon up anyone or anything. But I figure I could substitute an invocation with a simply prayer to God for guidance.
This whole world of Dreams and Lucid Dreaming in particular is like finally finding the magic I’ve been looking for in the world, which usually is just a cold, gray place to me. Of course I guess it doesn’t help I live in the Northwest! So depending on the kind of community I find here you guys might be seeing me around for a little while at least.
