Lucid Dream Challenges Progress: Who Would You Like to Meet in a Dream?

I am still working on the "to infinity and beyond" challenge.  It has been more challenging than I thought, but I'm beginning to realize that maybe there is something I'd be more interested in doing with my dreams.  I think I could use my dreams to help myself heal.

I've been having a very tough time with the feelings I've had following the death of my friend Akash.  He died nearly four years ago, but I still miss him.  He was probably the only reasons that I completed high school.  He had a lot of problems, but he had such a good heart and was always so positive.  One of the last things he said to me before we both moved away from our hometown was that he just wanted to be happy and find someone that understood him.  Isn't that what everyone wants?  I don't know if he ever accomplished that goal before he died.

I am thinking that I would like to talk to him again in a dream.  Really, I'd like to give him a hug because I think he probably needed it.  Over on The Lucid Dream Exchange, the author talks about conjuring a specific person in a dream.  I'd love to meet with Akash and talk to him again.  In some ways Akash was so wise beyond his years, and I think if I could talk to him, he would share some very important wisdom with me.  Maybe talking to him would help me accept the fact that he's gone and help me finally stop mourning.  I'm curious to see what would happen.  Even though I think about him all the time, I haven't dreamed of him in years.  I want to see what will happen when I dream about him now.

If you could talk to anyone in your dreams, who would it be and why?  Have you ever successfully conjured someone in a dream?  What was the experience like?

Dreaming is often the projection of one's own subconscious desires, hopes, fears etc. In a sense all that we see and experience, is a projection of our mind- Buddhist and yogic practices help us to realise these 'illusions', to enjoy them but not to get drawn into them, especially things such as dreams, visions etc.

Do you need to dream to evoke a person now absent from your life? Sending them positive energy, love and light may be more effective - I guess we'll never know until we too pass.
