Creating a Gift Out of Thin Air

Brenda Liv

I was still new to lucid dreaming and practicing how to stay lucid longer when someone suggested that as soon as I become lucid I just sit down for a minute. So that's what I did. 

I ‘came to’ inside of a home decorated in everything ‘70s, as if I had traveled back in time. It wasn't just a few ‘70s themed things, it was down to every detail. As I was sitting down trying to stabilize (the dream) I saw one of those old TVs with the rabbit ear antennas. It was on and was broadcasting the news. I didn't feel like watching the news so I turned it off. It turned back on. I thought, 'OK, I think I've sat for long enough,' and went to explore.

I could hear people coming from upstairs. I felt like I wasn't supposed to be in their house, so I hid behind the couch until they passed by and then I went upstairs. Things were different upstairs, it wasn't ‘70s, but futuristic. There was a hallway with several doors. I felt drawn to the one closest to me. As I was about to enter, a woman appeared behind me and told me not to go in there. I didn't feel like arguing so I just accepted it and kept walking down the hallway.

The door at the end of the hall opened up to a large bowling alley. There was a lot of people and everyone was very happy bowling, eating pizza and chocolate cakes. I felt it was someone's birthday. I saw some chocolate and tasted it - it was the first time I had tried eating in a lucid dream. It was pretty good, but I didn't have time to try more of the food because I could feel myself waking up.

I went onto the hallway again and felt I should probably leave a gift. I closed my eyes and visualized a crystal candle holder shaped like a lotus. I have one in real life, so it was easy to picture. This very bright white light appeared in front of me in the dream and slowly went down to the floor, the light disappeared and in its place was the gift I had pictured. It was the first time I had managed to create something out of thin air in a lucid dream.
