    But that doesn't mean I'd worship, in fact I'd probably rebel even harder. : P

    I lucid dream all the time & vividly recall several dreams a week... but this caught my attention because for years I had reoccurring dream (or nightmare really) since childhood about a serial killer (which varied a lot, but that was the basic theme), and in the dream the main fear was becoming/joining the serial killer. But in a lucid dream once some years ago I was able to catch and kill the serial killer & never had the dream again.

    It's strange because I know what the dream represented, and whatever triggered it can still occur in life (just like stress, being overwhelmed, etc), but simply taking control of the dream got rid of it.

    I'm not sure what your "boogie man" was triggered by, but I always thought you get rid of nightmares by dealing with the REAL issue your subconscious is brining up via dream, but it seems we ended these "messages" by telling our subconcious to shut the hell up

    Okay, thread hi-jack over....
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I hadn't thought much about the real stressors that may have caused the nightmares.

    My lucid "battle" escalated, I'd adapt something into my dream and use that against "it" and it would then adapt to my adaptation. Eventually, not only did I know Kung Fu like Bruce Lee but I could run really fast like the 6 million dollar man, lmao, amongst other powers. Anyways, at the time the only thing that I knew and could conceptualize, that really "ended" something was a nuclear bomb. After I nuked "it" I immediately stopped having nightmares with "it" in them.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

    I'm fucking curious.

    Peter Steele, like Peter Steele of Type O Negative ?
    I thought he died of a heart attack !?

    @greenfairy I don't do it on purpose, either. It just happens.
    I think psychic ability is just finely tuned and developed intuition, and anyone can develop theirs to the point most people would call kind of psychic. Some people have it more naturally developed than others, like a talent, so they could either get farther with it or just not have to work as much at it. I do think Ni dominance helps a lot.

I believe that just because I'm not good at something or don't understand what it's all about is a very foolish reason for discounting something, although many people seem to do this.
    Yes, in this you are very unusual. In a good way.

    wasn't it drug overdose? He died of heart failure, I think as a result of too many drugs. Maybe it wasn't an in-the moment overdose, but a long term thing. When i asked why he died, several people have said 'drugs.' Oh well.

    With that being said, I've heard many of you have lucid dreams, or even have obscure beliefs about the universe, some bordering on supernatural.

    With my imagination being what it is, my book is a 2nd reality to me when I REALLY get into it. So my question is, am I just wading feet deep into a puddle on the roof of a skyscraper? Is there a whole other realm I haven't journeyed into yet that I'm missing out on?

    Well let's start with lucid dreaming, because there are few topics that piss me off more. Why, you ask? Because most people legitimately have no idea what lucid dreaming is. It's become this trendy "oh, mhmmm totally lucid dream like it's my job", thing. Like it's positive or something?!?! Friends, let me give you some background to my annoyance before you all think I'm...something I'm not.

    I am Narcoleptic. I was diagnosed when I was fifteen and lived seven years of my life as a zombie (without the blood-lust). Narcolepsy is another word most people have false definitions of, so bare with me: Narcolepsy is an abnormality of REM sleep and a Neurological disorder. The most current theory about Narcolepsy is that the cause is complete lack of the neurotransmitter Orexin. Before I tangent like crazy, the reason I'm including the loaded detail about myself if because real lucid dreaming is a product of extreme exhaustion. Tons of people have vivid, crazy, screwed up dreams but lucid dreaming (dreams in which you can control the scenario and that actually feel like you could be awake) are not healthy because they are caused by lack of the deep, restorative levels of sleep. I spent 7 years of my life struggling to maintain wakefulness during the day because my brain lives in REM the vast majority of the night. Enough months (or years in my case) of that will first produce extreme exhaustion and then lucid dreaming. A normal sleep cycle should only have short time periods of REM, with the majority of the time spent in restorative Delta sleep.

    Five years ago I finally found a medication that has allowed me to function like a normal(ish) human.

    Lucid dreaming isn't fun or cool, and you've actually probably never experienced it. End Rant.
    -----

    Onto the imagination and obscure supernatural beliefs. I suppose I do have spiritual beliefs that cause unease in others at times. I actually believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, and that as a follower of Christ it lives in me and can do crazy things through me. I also believe the opposite is extremely alive and well, Satan and demonic principalities. Spiritual Warfare is something that goes on every day, and the more ignorant I've been to it the more I've been manipulated and deceived by it. Which is why I prefer to be aware. Even in my life story, Satan has tried to sabotage my life (the Narcolepsy is a great example) because he knew what God had planned for me. God's plans have beautifully prevailed though, because he knew my pain would only bloom into beauty.

    You mentioned a book you were getting really into, I do that...waaay too much actually. I get a little fixated and actually talk about stories like they are real life sometimes. I started reading the series The Wheel of Time in 7th grade and the final book just came out last January, I must have read the series through at least 12 times (there are 15 books). This does play into the depth of imagination quality of INFJ (though I think that is a largely 4 trait as well), stories and characters have always been so tangible to me. In truth though, I've seen the depth of my imagination have negative side effects too, so don't fret too much about your imagination not swallowing you whole. Until I was probably 21 not many people took my ideas or thoughts seriously (you kind of can't blame them) but I've been learning how to tame my imagination to produce actual real ideas that can give others a glimpse.

    ok I see. Could very well be. He definitely looked as if he had some issues

    RIP
