Last night before I went to bed, I had the intention to practice Dream Yoga stage 4 (fear practice) summoning a fire in the dream, and then walking into the fire.
Laying in bed, I imagined being at one of my favorite places to camp, a very secluded spot out in nature. There I decided to imagine my self collecting firewood, and then building a fire.
I fell asleep.
In the dream,( which I almost forgot about after waking, and came as a flashback to me midday), I was in a Ukrainian Government building which had had its power supply cut off, no lights, no heat, and in the center of a very large open room, I was helping teach the people there how to build a fire there!
It failed to prompt lucidity. At one point the fire kept on dying back, because one of the people there was trying to help by putting rocks around its perimeter, but the result was it was drowning out the wind/air flow the fire needed to grow.
I have not had success with dream incubation in the past, so this partial success was a big win in my eyes.
Later on in the night I had a dream that i was in a different building talking with @Dream_Hacker about lucid dreaming. I could feel that I was close to becoming lucid in that dream, but in the end the lucidity did not take hold. Interesting synchronicity, as that same night produced an actual lucid dream for @Dream_Hacker.
Tonight I went to that same building, and read in the lounge area TWRs book. On a whim, I ended up reading chapter 7. It resonated deeply with me, not just because of the importance of the material, but also becuase over the summer, the first day I got his old edition of the book from the library, I ended up reading this same section, and it hit home big.
Forgot about reading it. The part that stuck out most was when TWRs teacher had given him instructions on doing a protection prayer diligently, and then the rock that ended up saving his life, and the lives of many others. Very powerful stuff.
