Why Do I Have a Bruise After Lucid Dreaming?
i am not an expert when it comes to lucid dreaming, I have been able to catch myself dreaming and interact with my environment such as changing colors on the wall or continue to fly in the air when I feel like I’m falling. I can tell myself no this is my dream and I want to fly and will get back into the air.
I have had re-occurring dreams and have been able to change the dream around based on what I remember from last time. Recently, I was able to go back into a dream- I remember an empty bedroom and a blue light from the TV illuminating the room a little. I heard a voice yell HEY and I woke up scared. I told myself to go back and I DID- this time I tried not to move and just opened my eyes in the dream to look around. Then I felt a phone drop next to me and go off with lights and sounds and again I woke up. The third time I went back in and this time I heard the voice behind me say. “are you kidding me?” and I realized I was late for work. I have heard voices and seen shadows of people but never interacted. I just took on a watchful approach and left when I was scared.
One night – I remember a buzzing in the air getting louder and faster and then almost like an pulse I found myself dreaming and heard a women say “He’s in! I can hear him now!” Not being used to interacting with energies or spirits I was scared and woke up. This time I wanted to interact a little more and was able to catch myself dreaming again, except this time it was different. I couldn’t remember what my room looked like! I kept waking up in the dark in my old bedroom as a child when I would have nightmares a lot! I kept trying to bring myself back to my room but I couldn’t so I tried to wake up and was hit with sleep paralysis going in and out of my room and my old room if that makes sense?
I was finally able to pull free, I took a deep breath-envisioned a bright light around me and went back in. This time there were more shadowy figures ( I dont know if I cant see their face because I don’t want to or not ready for it yet?) They started talking to me and approaching me. I again became scared and tried to wake up but sleep paralysis made it difficult a second time. I was going in and out and could see snaps of shadows getting closer and one managed to grab me. I yelled and tried to pull as much as I could but couldn’t break free so I relaxed a bit to think and the next think I remember was feeling this hot powerful pulse build up inside me and I looked up at everyone and yelled LEAVE ME ALONE! They all disappeared and I woke up in my own bed.
I looked for things that belonged in my current room to assure myself like the carpet, the dresser, the tv etc. Long story short I now have a bruise where I was grabbed on my arm. It doesn’t resemble a hand more like a blotch of spots, that is tender to the touch.
I also want to say I don’t bruise easily which is why I am concerned. I have gotten hurt many times but never had the appearance of a bruise. What do you think this could be related to or am I attributing something to that place? I don’t remember running into anything and my partner mentioned I was tossing and turning more than usual but nothing out of the ordinary? Any guidance would be appreciated.
