Whatever your style
from Hapkido to Choy Li Fut, you may practice at the dojo and you
could find others practicing already.
It might be that you step
into the dojo and find yourself alone. For many this might be what you
wish, to be able to concentrate on your style without interference from
If you do find yourself
alone and want either an opponent or help in your art try turning
around, relax, focus your mind and when you turn back someone will
be there. Dream characters can be very varied, some are good talkers
and can offer good advice on your technique. Many will be silent
but very good at martial arts and demonstrating technique. This
technique will "most likely" have been gleaned by your
own mind from real life lessons, books, tv programs, films etc but
there are many theories.
most likely to appear in your martial arts lucid dreams are members
of your own dojo, below my own sensei and a senior black belt face
each other. There is even the scientifically unproven possibility
that you could meet another dreamer here in the lucid dojo, although
it might be difficult to spot who's a dream character and who's a
dreamer. The only way to be sure would be to use the method described
on the Lucid Crossroads science
said that you if you meet a person that you may know in waking life
they might still be asleep and not conscious they are sharing a
dream with you. It might be possible for you to wake them up into
lucidity (providing they know what the state is), to find out more
about mutual/shared dreaming visit the lucid
could very easily walk in on a class that's already underway, don't
make the mistake I do when I lucid dream, that is to rush upto dream
characters shouting to them about "I'm lucid dreaming what do
you think of that then" and such like.
your brain is trying to interpret the world around you as if it
were real and if you really went upto someone like that they would
treat you as a nut.
walking in on the scene above, this group are warming up for a session
of dynamic Aikido, you need to have the same mind set you would have
in waking life. The older of the two guys in the black and white robes
looks like the master, bow to the group and walk round so you can
speak to him.
but firm (he is likely to be your dream character after all) ask
him to help you with some technique or if he would he be willing
to spar against etc. Walking into the center of the ring and shouting
"come on then I'll take you all" will most likely just
get you disdainful looks. If you behave like real life its more
likely to feel like real life when you practice.
So there may be no-one
or many people, sometimes there could be different types of martial
artists training at the same time. If on occasion the room is too
full, use one of the doors to find some other space, or alternatively,
go up the stairs to the Lucid Crossroads and practice in the large
Lucid Crossroads ~
you turn around and face the stairs..... .
