Feeling “tired” leads to lucid dreams (and more)
A lot of times for me, when I feel “tired” for an extended period of time, what it really means is that if I lay down for a while, I will experience lucid dreams and OBEs. As just one more example of this, I noticed yesterday that I had that feeling, and when it persisted until today, I decided to take an extended nap this afternoon. For about 2.5 hours I then got to have all sorts of fun in lucid dreams, and a little while after I woke up the “tired” feeling was gone.
For a lot of people feeling tired like this may just be a normal state of not getting enough sleep, but I’ve had plenty of sleep lately, so I knew this was something else.
FWIW, the way this usually works is this:
- I lay down and fall asleep. Not much happens.
- I wake up and roll over, or I wake up to go to the bathroom.
- When I fall asleep the second time, the special effects — lucid dreams and OBEs — start. I then let them go as long as they want/need to go.
I don’t know why these things work the way they do, but some time within the last three or four years I picked up on this, and when time permits, I do what I just described. It doesn’t cost anything, and it’s always more fun than going to the movie theater. :)
