I have difficulty remembering my dreams. Actually, I have yet to remember a single one. With one exception. If I sleep without an alarm clock, just wake up naturally, I tend to wake up semi-lucid in a dream. At that point, I can make it last for hours if I want to, as long as I don’t get too active. Why semi-lucid? I have to obey the laws and rules of the story I wake up in. Like the Matrix, I can bend the rules, but I can’t break them. I can guide my story into the direction I want.
For the past weeks (possibly since I started using subliminals again) I’ve been waking up in an epic story. So epic, I’ve been writing parts down in my someday-I’ll-be-a-writer-book under the heading Eden Chronicles.
Every day, it’s a new chapter. But for the past week or so, I keep waking up at the same spot. It’s like my dreams are having writer’s block and are expecting me to provide resolution to this particular plot point. I’ve tried all kinds of things, but every time the effects to the story are undesirable and I wake up like Groundhog Day at the same point in the story. It’s starting to get frustrating.
Has anybody ever experienced something like this? Where dreams are expecting you to give them an answer of some kind and keep repeating until you do?
