To start, I have had a realization about the personal challenge I have recently started on. The challenge is to keep my anger in check. There is more detail on that in the previous post. The realization I have had about the challenge is that some anger leaves about as quickly as it arrives. That kind of anger does not seem worth analyzing really. That is the kind that is a natural response to being annoyed or inconvenienced. For example, it doesn’t take a genius to realize why I am getting pissed off if the cat keeps running across my keyboard while I am trying to watch a video on my computer. I can make this anger short lived by simply shutting the cat out of the room until I am done watching the video. Problem solved and anger in check.
Now to a different topic. I have been watching a YouTuber’s videos about lucid dreaming and astral projection. I don’t recall with certainty if I looked up the topic or if a video was recommended. Either way, it was relevant. I sometimes have annoying dreams in which In experience several false wakings. I will realize I am asleep and try to wake up. I will wake up several times in the dream before I wake up for real. These false wakings are tricky because I can feel my toes move or myself sit up. Then I realize my body has not moved and I was feeling the movement of my astral body. In these dream experiences it is like my astral body is having trouble anchoring into the physical and keeps slipping out while I am trying to wake up. It can get quite frustrating and cause me to have some difficulty grounding for a while after I wake up physically. I suppose a word to describe the experience is “disorienting”. I asked the YouTuber if she had experienced such dreams. She said she had. It was nice to know that somebody could relate. I wonder if this kind of dream experience is fairly common or a sign of anything.
That’s all for this post except to say that I hope you are all doing well.
