In my life I have had the joy of experiencing vividly beautiful dreams, uncanny out of body experiences, and truly insightful hypnagogic visions, but the lucid dream experience had always eluded me … that is, until now. The other night I was blessed with a taste of such incredible human experience, and although it lasted for only a few minutes, I am still so happy and mystified that it happened at all.
This infinitesimal moment of lucidity proved to become the catalyst for one of the most astounding spectacles I have ever witnessed and it bestowed such gift I shall be forever grateful for.
So, here is my wonderful one-moment-lucidity dream story or actually dream vision from my Dream Journal!!
OCTOBER 23, 2013
I was having a normal dream, which was getting more and more boring (don’t even remember it well). For some reason, the me inside the dream got really, really fed up and at one point shouted out loud:
“C’mon!! Show me something beautiful !!”
Just as I said this, the image changed completely.
I am now looking at the blue ocean from somewhere above. And in front of my eyes there is an incredible seascape. On the left I see the shoreline with a beautiful sandy beach, and on the right is the blue ocean.
Now on the left area of the ocean I see a beeline of whales basically `standing` with their bodies half out of water and spraying water up in the air from their mouths. There must have been 30, 40 of them, more maybe. They were all standing in this position half body out, and spraying water upward at the same time.
More on the right, I see another row of whales (but of another type, these were humpback whales), and the first whale is jumping out of the sea on the right side, thumping the ocean surface with a massive splash . I can see the surf surging upwards. Then next whale, this time doing the same thing but on the left , and next whale to the right, and the next one to the left, and this goes on and on, right, left, right , left for some 20, 30 whales if not more…
A kind of synchronized swimming in order to make this exquisite dance of water sprays.
So from up in the sky where I am, I see on the left side of the ocean this row of standing whales spraying water upwards, and on the right this row of whales jumping one after the other out of the water alternately on the right and left. It is an out-of-the -world view to behold ! all this beautiful water show of sprays ! and all these beautiful creatures ! Then as I zoom up on the `standing` row of whales on the left, I can see their faces from closer and realize that the first 20 or so were whales indeed, but the second half were dolphins, although they were almost as big as the whales .
Can you imagine this picture ??
This magnificent extravaganza of whales swimming, jumping, splashing, all the time making huge sprays of water, either from up their mouths or by jumping/falling onto the water, and on two different rows and going on for miles !!! a sort of synchronized water-dance show displayed for my benefit, and it seems at my request !!!
I couldn’t believe my eyes. To say that my dream-jaw dropped is an understatement!!! I came back to normal consciousness too soon indeed, but woke up in pure euphoria and gratitude for this incredible spectacle and performance they put up for me. After all, I had requested `something beautiful `, right??!!! And they gave me more than I could have imagined or ever hoped for!!!
Too bad that it lasted only for a few moments and that even after this inspiring experience I can`t yet say I have had a full-scale lucid dream – at least to this day.
Nonetheless, we get what we get, and let`s be happy and grateful for what we receive, and graceful about it 🙂 !

A beautiful experience, and I can’t help but wonder if you are now more motivated to speak out against Japan’s shameless policy of harvesting whales and dolphins – “for research” – when it is simply for the greed and taste of a few wealthy individuals.
Shameless is the right word, Marco ! and even prior to this dream, whales and dolphins have been my steady companions in dreams so very many times i can hardly count, one actually licked my face as a dog would 🙂 . So they do have a special place in my heart.
Although i am not generally a big `speak-out ` person, i have been signing any petition that came my way, and i cant yet bring myself to watch the Cove ( am sure i may actually puke…).
Until a few years ago i think that few Japanese knew about it at all. Thanks to the foreign press the problem has been pointed out and the general public is finally moving. But it will take time also because the livelihood of a whole town is in the balance and the government should find another way to let the fishermen feed their kids . This is not an easy problem and i am afraid it is going to take a while yet.
I daresay that almost any Japanese would say they are against it and at any rate it is not so popular nowadays to eat whale meat anymore, so things are yes definitely on the move, but am afraid it will take a few years. 😦
Such beautiful imagery! It reminds me very much of a ballet.
Since I now know more than even a few yeas ago, I am almost ashamed to say that I have enjoyed sea mammal shows since I was a child. It has been claimed that the leaps, etc. with which they entertain us are natural behaviors; it’s their method of capture, along with the limits of their “homes” which make it so wrong. Still, they are a joy to behold, but even more so in the wild.
Thank you for bringing these images into my mind. Rose
Yes, Rose, me too, I did take my kids to see those shows. I dont know whether i should regret it or no. I just know that we loved them despite the fact of knowing (but not really realizing) that they were being held captive.
So all the more so this spectacle in the wild (or maybe Astral 🙂 ) that i was granted was extraordinary and just simply STUNNING !
I must say again, how i love the world of dreams !!
Thank you so very much for stopping by, Rose ! ❤ so appreciated !
i have figured out the meaning of life, the whole ball of wax, the answer that everyone seems to be looking for with regards to why we exist and all the rest. trouble is that it is useless information to anyone but myself. lol this is because each and everyone one of us has to discover that out for themselves, by themselves to make it real for themselves. all i can do at this point is point out the direction i took and they have to walk it but it will look different to them, feel different to them, be different to them, but it is the same direction i took. it is supposed to be this way, all i can assure others is that yep that experience is similar to one i had, yep i learned that lesson too but i got this from it instead. etc. so that is what i am going to do, just point and support all who try, who at least walk the walk, and assure others that if it feels right to them, then it is right for them, it will not be the same for someone else though, but this too is okay because they will find the same destination going the same way, by their own way and time. i am appreciative and grateful for Lori to put her dreams in a journal and share it with the world, perhaps one day all will do this as regular as brushing your teeth or putting out one’s clothes the next day, or preparing a meal, as part of ones natural habits of the day. the lessons/messages in our dreams can be for one person or 100. but all will have their own way to interpret the dream lesson/message. this is because we are all unique, individual creations of God. (God’s children) so we will experience all in our own unique way. enjoy the lessons, dreams which are our gifts and schooling. remember if you do not get it the first time, the lesson will keep coming until you do get it and then the next one comes up. look at it all as and adventure and the end of the adventure is Paradise for all to enjoy
Spoken like the Buddha.
Each of us is unique indeed and it is so true that no two life-experiences are the same. I always tell myself that whatever I believe , or think i believe, is basically only a story in my head 🙂 lol, the story i need to cope and make sense of what life brings to our doorsteps !
Thank you for your comment Michael and fortunate you are !
