I just now had a pretty weird experience. Didn’t know where to post it. I’ve been lucid dreaming since I was a teen and this wasn’t a nightmare gone lucid but a lucid dream becoming an out of my control nightmare. I’m well aware that your unconscious can manifest bad stuff when lucid dreaming but this wasn’t that. I have had that happen before but I found ways to deal with that. This felt like someone hijacked my lucid dream.
I was lucid dreaming and suddenly I found myself in a different scene, inside a glass box that was filling up with water fast, I was in some sort of round chamber like in a castle or temple. I saw cloaked men in a circle around me. I was well aware I was dreaming but I wasn’t able to assert control. I tried to manifest something completely out of context, an irritating happy song (hollaback girl ) but it sounded all far away and distorted and didn’t change anything. The water came higher and higher until I started drowning and I felt my chest cramping and it hurted so bad. I thought to myself, this is how seemingly healthy young people suddenly die in their sleep, I’m gonna be one of those people, I can really die. Brilliant thought. That’s when I really panicked. Next thing I know the glass explodes. I start to crawl while gasping for air and realize both my feet are chained to the floor. The people that were surrounding me come slowly closer and I’m trying so hard to assert control and when they almost reach me I am suddenly flying away from them and realize I turned into my spirit animal the magpie. I’m flying in circles above them desperately looking for a way out of the chamber, trying to manifest a way out. Suddenly a tiny little window appears, I go through and wake up.
But that wasn’t it, I didn’t actually wake up, I ended up in loop and each time I “woke up” a cloaked man would be in my bedroom coming toward me. Now the weirdest part, after “waking up” for the 4th time he finally reached me and then kissed my forehead and I woke up for real that time. When he leaned over I smelled musk. I know because it’s one of my favourite fragrances in the world. This is the weirdest thing ever happened when lucid dreaming and I know it wasn’t my unconscious. Someone was constantly fighting me for control. Was this an attack? I know you can enter people’s dreams. I have done it. But to battle someone for control in their hijacked lucid dream is something that has never happened to me before. Please some insights, thank you.
