A dream within a dream: It’s still a dream!
Have you ever had a dream within a dream? It is possible that yes since it is not such a strange phenomenon (but it is incredible to experience it). It is possible to have a dream within a dream and within a dream, within a dream … I love sharing dreams and teachings. In fact, in this entry, you can better understand the different types of dreams. Dreams are great, and when there are situations like this one, it’s even more enjoyable.
However, I want to share my story here with you guys, since someone in a lucid dreaming community challenged me to do “Inception” and go four layers worth of dreams within dreams. It produced quite a remarkable dream. They required me to use WILD to induce the dream and also every single dream layer, so here it goes:
The Moon wipes me out from a dream within a dream, within a dream, within a dream.
Layer 1. Lucid Dream.
Initially, there is a long fragment worth of non-lucid dreaming. Once I turned lucid, I woke myself up to do this challenge. Upon awakening, I did the WILD technique. A few seconds later, I had a false awakening in my room. The dream was fuzzy, so I decided to make my dream stable. It was night, and it was beautiful. I felt a flight would be helpful before doing anything, but I just flew into my room to go back to sleep, in my room, to induce the next layer.
After a few seconds of flight, the dream was pretty stable, so I decided to lay down in my bed to try to perform WILD within my lucid dream to go into another lucid dream. Firstly, I laid down in my dream bed and focused I wanted to WILD within the dream to enter another dream. I almost woke up, but I moved my eyes, and the dream became stable again. I attempted a second time, with success and without waking up.
Layer 2. A lucid dream within a lucid dream.
I had a False Awakening in a different room. It was in a big house, and my bed also looked different, it was greenish. I did not have any specific feelings, other than my normal feelings from being lucid. Neither, I felt like I was in a deeper connection with my self. Here I am at the second level of a dream within a dream. The dream was stable, so I attempted a second WILD. Once more, I laid down in my dream-dream bed and felt a shock around my entire dream-dream body.
Layer 3. A lucid dream within a lucid dream within a lucid dream.
I had another False Awakening inside a pyramid. I was still lucid, and I wondered why the hell I was inside a pyramid. My “bed” was the lid of a sarcophagus from some pharaoh who I had no idea who was. My dream was still stable, and I realized I was on the third level. They asked me to do a waking WILD and three WILDS more in the LD, so I had one more to go. However; I still had the same feeling, control, and personality from previous dreams, with perfect waking recall and also recall from what I have been doing since lucid. I laid down in my dream-dream-dream bed and focused on entering more in-depth into the dream.

I had another False Awakening in another room. I checked my hands to make sure I did not blow the progress. My index finger was skinny and long, so I succeeded. I was at the fourth level, completing the challenge. I was still myself, with my same personality and my same dream body. Any changes? I did not feel more rooted nor connected with myself; but felt like a regular lucid dream.
I decided to look for a friend, a fellow Oneironaut. I exited my room hoping to find her. Instead, I found someone who was pissed at me for no reason and threatening. I knew he was a dream character and I was aware that my psychic gifts were more significant in a dream, even with extra ones!. I was in a big room, and he started to ask me a lot of questions. A female dream character also began to ask me questions to see what was wrong with me that I did not get along with this jerk. I did not feel like wasting valuable time in the dream.
I never lost the awareness that I was sleeping in the physical world. The fact that it was a dream within a dream did not confuse me.
I exited my house, along with a couple more dream characters. It was night, and suddenly the moon turned red and threw a fireball at us. I decided to follow the dream instead of controlling it. I wanted to see where my subconscious was going to take me. Someone told me that I belonged in a different dream, so the moon was going to try to make that happen.
The moon obliterated all the Dream Characters that were with me. I saw the moon turning green. When the moon was green, it would poison me. Also, the moon turned blue; if you made eye contact with it, you would become paralyzed. The moon could turn black, and a big whirlwind appeared from it, sucked you into it and brought you to the previous dream. I explored this strange dream world while the moon was randomly changing within these colors. Sometimes it turned on its natural color, which made it harmless.
It was the most beautiful.
I suddenly got to a place where I could see a lot of people. They were for an event for some sort. I wondered what my subconscious had for me. So I jumped the line, and a guy asked me for my member card. I thought if I opened my wallet, I would pull one, so I did. He also asked me for my ID. I tried to search for my ID while the moon was aiming at me and turned red. I did not want the moon to hit me, so I ran from there.
However, the red colors were very intense, very bright and then, a cloud of fire approached me. I ran and hid somewhere. All the Dream Characters did not seem to care. I entered a small kiosk; it was not more significant as a voting booth. I realized it was a Gamestop and I could purchase video games swiping my card in a machine. A few video game characters appeared painted next to the keypad. I wondered what games my subconscious made, but I could hear fire from the moon, so I left.
As I was walking, I avoided a fireball in the last second, when I witness the moon turning green and throwing me a cloud of green poison. I saw the cloud of green poison on me, I jumped to hide in a plant, and I could see how the poison killed the plant. I was fine, so I left the place. The moon was white, looking normal. I saw from the far distance the moon changing, but it was not attacking me. I observed how the moon turned black and absorbed someone.
An incredible feeling is coming. Could this be the magic of a dream within a dream?
I was flying by a lake. I am confident it was the Michigan Lake. It looked like it, like if I was in Chicago. Suddenly, I saw the reflection of the moon in the lake. It was a blue reflection, and I looked at the moon. I believe it was impossible for me to imitate what I saw on Photoshop. It was extremely beautiful and shiny blue. It was bright as the light, but it was blue. The color was also semi-transparent. I was amazed for such a beautiful moon my mind created.
I wanted to enjoy this moon with my friend, so I tried to summon her. While I started thinking about her and staring at such an amazing blue moon, I realized I was paralyzed and recalled that eye contact with a blue moon induced paralysis. I tried to regain control of my dream when suddenly, the moon switched to its black, absorption mode.
A colossal whirlwind came from the moon and hit me in a split second. I traveled at high speed towards the moon. I wiped out.
Going back to the previous levels. Level 3. If it is a dream within a dream, you should go back to the previous levels.
I had a false awakening in the pyramid, the previous place I was before WILDing to a more profound dream. However, now there were people with me. I entered a chamber, and I had my Tarot Deck with me. Someone wanted to see it. She also had a Tarot deck, so I asked to see hers. I tried to channel and ask the Tarot a question; however, I do not recall the question. I cannot remember the first card, but the second one was called, “Bent Spoon and Fork.” The image of the card was a lot of bent spoons and forks, bent with psychokinesis. I tried to channel and figure the meaning of the card without realizing that I was looking at the card too much.
Climbing to layer 2.
I had a false awakening in a weird room, a room where I did a WILD on previous dreams. Left the room, and the quality of the dream was decreasing dramatically. I went to the restroom and tried to make the dream stable. However, the dream started to collapse.
Climbing to layer 1.
I had another false awakening in my room. I was back at the first level. My dream quality was terrible, and I doubted I would have enough time to meet my friend. I felt I was not going to recover the dream at all. I tried to focus on Astral Projection within my lucid dream, but I woke up. (Level 0, awake). I have been able to notice that this has been a dream within a dream because the return was by the same path as the one.
And this is all, deep down, this is a single lucid dream. The whole theme of the levels is dreamt, although it really can be very intense. But since you have asked me several, I will share another dream in levels, but this time starting from an ordinary dream, and alternating between lucidity and no lucidity … this one that confused me a bit! But you have a wait until next week. See you next Wednesday!
Much Love & Light.
Lots of blessings and abundance your way!
