This dream has been viewed 3472 times.At some point I become lucid, and decide now would be a good time to look further into a recurring dream theme that I recently thought might have a connection to a past life. I have not had the dream since considering this and meditating on it, but sometimes I just don't have the dream for a few days, so I haven't ruled out the possibility that I made a mistake or the connection isn't from that life. As soon as I tried I felt myself waking up, and I try to relax to stay asleep. Unfortunately my cat chose THIS time to noisily groom herself. I was still seeing images before my eyes....but I kept hearing my cat licking her fur in the background. That become overwhelmingly distracting, and I woke up. However, I soon go back to sleep and I try this again. I mean to look into this particular past life, and immediately I feel like I am flying. I am looking down on a bunch of very small island and on each island is an enormous and very beautiful tree. The islands are very close together and there seems to be a nice even mix of islands to water ratio. I try to land on an island but I over shoot them quickly. I wake up again.
After falling asleep again I try one more time, and I am in total darkness. I try to command myself to look into a past life. Nothing happens, just darkness. I touch my nose, which is one of the things I have been trying to remember to do, as it helps me identify myself...as sometimes I don't seem to have a body, and touching my nose make me aware of myself. I forget how, but I thought somehow my nose was not the right shape.
Additional Comments:In a recent meditation I encounter a guide and she takes me to a place that I would describe as a very old forest full of huge trees. She tells me that each tree represents one life time. When I touch a tree I get an impression of something about that life time. I think the trees on the islands is a variation of the trees from my meditation. Maybe the island trees, however, were someone else's forest, because of all the water. I am not sure. I am just guessing. I don't think such a landscape exists anywhere.
