Submitted questions:

  • I’m curious about physical pain in lucid dreams. I’ve had a couple dream scenarios where things have attacked me while I was lucid, and I feel actual physical pain. Not a crippling pain but enough to wonder about it inside the dream.

  • May I ask you following question our dream circle is still pondering on: In case we experience a sudden death and doesn’t recognize that we just have died – how can we find out that we are dead and in a bardo state, given the possibility that we might recreating our existence through the power of the unconsciously mind and/or old habits? What would be a way out of this mind-trap?

  • What would be your advice to your average lay practitioner who is still quite dedicated, but would like to advance their practice (given responsibilities/time constraints etc.).

  • I recently had an unsought lucid dream. In the dream I was trying to pack a large amount of luggage in order to make a flight on time. I then decided “I really don’t need this luggage” and the dream was immediately replaced by a rush of energy that lasted a long time. I have experienced an increase in energy in general since this dream. I have not discerned what the luggage represented. Any suggestions on how I can find out what part of my life the “luggage” represented?

  • I’m curious about the nature of samaya, and how to move on to study with another main teacher - whether that constitutes a break, or not.

  • I think I have some form of what is called aphantasia – inability to create visual images in the mind, or difficulty doing so. I think this may make it difficult to lucid dream. What do you think? I cannot, for example, recreate a reality check in a dream since I don’t see details – I never see my hands, or any part of myself, for example.
