196) Triggers to Lucidity and Helping Rafael
I had another short experience last night that I wish to share, as it shows that there are souls who are in need of ‘conscious dreamers’ to help them realize a change is needed.
One of the key points I try to use when getting out of body during a dream is the ability to realize that something ‘isn’t right’ or very unusual, which will make me stop and question my physical status. These triggers to lucidity generally take the form of unusual events or dangerous situations I find myself in. When that happens, I stop and assess my ‘physical’ status. If there is ANY question at all whether I’m awake or dreaming, then I know I’m dreaming! (Because when you are fully awake, there is NO DOUBT that you are!)
This experience started with me back in my prior hometown walking down the road and finding an entire freeway built above the country road I was on. I realized this had to have been built overnight, and puzzled as to how this could be possible! Still, I did not question my status (as I should have) at this time and continued on with my ‘dream’ life. Walking into a home I am familiar with on that road, I was again surprised to find myself sitting on loose gravel, near the edge of a very deeply dug hole that was in the basement of this house.
Usually a dangerous situation is a strong indicator that I am dreaming, but once again, I did not heed the situation and assess my status and kept moving on, climbing to safety, wondering why there were stone tunnels under this house, and then entering into a room upstairs in the home.
Again, I can remember ‘physically’ feeling the eye mask I was (actually) using to sleep STILL on my face while I’m in the dream, another key point that should have made me more conscious of my dreaming status. I dropped something, made a loud noise, and heard from another room the homeowner asking ‘who’s there?’
Initially I was concerned, but then answered, ‘No worries, it’s just me” and moved out of the house. It was on the steps as I was leaving that finally the unusual situations I was just in made me conscious of my dreaming status, and I knew I could get out of body!
I jumped high to confirm my status, and was thrilled to once again find myself flying and zooming over the countryside. I can remember thinking how crystal clear my thought processes were now, being totally conscious of all that I was doing!
I just wish I could explain the elation and joy one feels when totally free of the body and physical density. I asked to ‘go where I needed to be’ (as I always prefer to have the Universe decide my best travels)
I found myself watching in horror the collision of two large trucks from high above, as semi-trailer and a gasoline/oil truck at an intersection. The oil truck completely T-boned the semi-truck and there was chaos and confusion all around.
I watched as the driver of the oil truck got out and attempted to put out some flames with an extinguisher – and yet I knew it was all in vain.
My next memory is of meeting this truck driver as he stood in front of me, looking very confused. I asked him his name, and clearly I heard, “Rafael”. I remember talking with him at length and at one point saying ‘I’d like to get to know you better’.
He became anxious, stating ‘no, no – you can’t ‘ and the knowing I felt (as much as not in words but feelings) was that he had a bad experience with another woman who he allowed to ‘know him better’.
I eventually realized that he was living his last moments over and over again, confused and afraid, unaware that he had passed over to spirit during this truck accident. As an out-of-body traveler, I knew that I was ‘visible’ to him because of his continued ‘perception’ of being alive and connected with the denser physical realm. He was unable to see those around him of a higher vibration who were trying to help, and I can remember asking him to ‘look around’ and see those with him, which he couldn’t.
After a long talk (of which I have little recall for the specifics), I only remember asking him the general question, ‘Well, do you think it’s possible that someone could be dead (passed over) and not realize it?” He stopped and thought for a long time and finally said, ‘well, yes…I guess it can be possible” at which point there was a very bright light and what felt to be an ‘ending’ of a movie. He faded out and I found myself back into the dream life I had just come from.
I was in this half-conscious dream life for a while before I realized consciously that I had to waken and get Rafael’s experience recorded. Already I had forgotten much of the experience but recorded what I could recall.
It is so difficult at times to pull enough conscious awareness into your dreams, even with triggers, hence this fragmented experience. However, the idea that you can be of service with your astral travels is what’s important to know from this experience.
Although I will never truly know what became of Rafael, I do know that because I helped him to open up his perspective to another possibility for what he was experiencing, that he could now ‘see’ his spiritual helpers. I sent him love and peace, knowing he was now in good hands.
