First of all thank you for being here and for having had the guidance to post about my experience with drawing and singing in the lucid-dreaming experience. The experience of collecting the data and writing this was an inspiration in itself. I had the chance to look back in my Dream Journal and see things i didn’t remember anymore. So wonderful.
It all started in a drawing course i was doing of drawing in vegetable paper (also known in English as tracing paper). i love it because it allows several layers to inter-act with one another
Inspired by a dream on the 5th of January, where a friend had a bicycle and a key that was able to open the door at the first try, i felt it was somehow related to entering the portal do dreaming super-lucid (directing the dream and creating it with the power of the heart, in an environment where i can levitate, fly and do things that only happen in dreams).
I’ve done several shamanic retreats in Italy and they have gryphons all over the place - in statues and ancient logos, so i remembered to draw two of them at the gate.
In this period i was taking notes of dream signs on my Dream Journal very intensively. I was also saying affirmations in the hypnogogic state for remembering even more dreams (i was writing 5-6 dreams a night)
I felt i was ready to open the doors
I had learned a beautiful mediation specifically made for dreaming lucid by Charlie Morley - the circle of protectors and I felt a deep inspiration to start drawing them.
first the mermaid (or Yemanja)
I had very vivid non-lucid dreams where i was swirling and singing in water (mermaid?)
The second drawing inspired in my protectors was Kuan Yin
On the 12th i connected with Jesus and the dolphins and saw a beautiful drawing that i did for PURE FUN (i had no sense of invoking them) I love Jesus and the dolphins and loved the drawing - for me it represents that it’s the joy of life that makes it possible for us to walk upon waters
with all the love in the drawings and all the layers connecting with each other, i had my first super lucid-dream where i was consciously flying.
I woke up spontaneously after my first three cycles of sleep and did my first lucid dream plan. It materialized exactly as in my lucid dream plan drawing. i had two frames and the dream had two scenes - those drawn. I experienced my first super lucid dream on the 13th of January 2023. Something inside of me shifted forever. The most significant experience was the consciousness elevation. On that day i looked at a snail’s home and realized how sleeping is directly linked to evolution - the feeling was as if i was looking at it for the first time in my life.
During this period I was singing everyday for almost one hour, having noticed that the dreams were becoming more and more vivid with this practice before sleeping, after a research about the parts of the brain that are activated when we sing: the pre-frontal cortex is one of them, which is also the responsible for dreaming lucid. This also gives a lot of good energy to the dream world.
At the moment i sing only five minutes everyday and keep having spontaneous lucid dreams. And super lucid-ones as well. Lately i don’t even have to do reality checks - i just know I’m lucid dreaming
