consciously directing attentions to Gratitude
during transition from Waking reality to Dream space
will create a bridge allowing intentional exploration,
and passage to enlightening adventures.
here is how:
1. tonight, as you lie to rest, focus on Gratitude.
2. imagine this symbol over your heart.
3. with each peaceful beat calming waters within,
feel a drift into sleep,
flowing knowing going is NOW -
resting on a ring of Gratitude,
leisurely floating Rivers of Abundance.
rest. soak. splash.
explore shores for treasures galore.
prepare to wake in Gratitude.
to activate Will during sleep excursions,
summon a symbol of Gratitude.
You will immediately connect with choice, awareness, and power!
plus - flying remains an exhilarating option.
" Lucid dreams are also symbolic--yet in quite a different way,
...Their symbolism takes the form of beautiful landscapes
--different luminous phenomena, sunlight, clouds, and especially a deep blue sky.
In a perfect instance of the lucid dream I float through immensely wide landscapes,
with a clear blue, sunny sky, and a feeling of deep bliss and Gratitude,
which I feel impelled to express by eloquent words of thankfulness and piety.
Sometimes these words seem to me a little rhetorical,
but I cannot help it, as it is very difficult in dreams to control emotional impulses ...
Sometimes I conceive of what appears as a symbol, warning, consoling, approving.
Flying or floating may be observed in all forms of dreams,
except perhaps the class of general dream sensations;
yet it is generally an indication that lucid dreams are coming. "
- excerpt, A Study of Dreams by Frederik Van Eeden
