As readers of this blog know, I have been trying to talk to a deceased friend in a lucid dream. Last night I was drifting off to sleep, just watching strange thoughts float past. Suddenly I realized that I was dreaming and told myself, "Find Akash, go talk to Akash." Unfortunately, I was so excited that I woke myself up at the same time. When I fell back asleep, my focus was gone.
I am very hopeful that one day soon I will talk to Akash in a dream. Not only would this experience give me the joy of talking to him again, but it would confirm that I am beginning to develop my ability to have lucid dreams. Have any of you ever tried lucid dream challenges or talking to a friend in a dream?
