Waking up in different 'reality'
#1
Has anyone ever experienced this?

I had a dream about a week and a half ago, can't remember exactly what it was, but when I woke up, I felt like I was really in a different 'me', than the guy who'd gone to sleep the previous night. My reactions to things were not what I'd been consciously trying to practice in my day to day life, and I had different 'mind patterns', as in not even caring about what I was interested in previously, as much or not at all even. It was a distinct feeling of loss too, as if I knew I had work to do, to get back to the desirable state of being previously (at least that is something I was thinking about). It may be more accurate to say that overall, I woke up a stranger to myself. Not completely drastically of course, but a definite sense of 'something isn't quite right'.

Any thoughts? Or am I just going a bit loopy!

We create physical reality by projecting it through our consciousness. We perform this feat of 'frame selection' from an infinite number of sources (parallel realities) billions times/sec and we are, literally, new after each change. Two things occur.

One is that we select frames that are so alike that we don't notice the change or the new You. Just not enough contrast. Then we have what happened to you.


You made a profound change that you are finding easily recognizable vs. your 'old' world. Contrast was noted. There you are, somewhere, literally, else. Now the fun begins. See who has not changed, or what has not, your room? House? Car? Friend(s)? Your or their physical appearances? I like to write this down which reinforces the fact of the change.

Enjoy and congratulations!
Existence is not subject to time; time is subject to Existence.

Sounds like you've been on a journey.

If one ignores the circumstances you described, and focus only on the outcome, those sorts of changes can and do happen after real-world experiences, whether going on holiday, or going to visit someone, or going on some work- or education-related trip. On returning to one's previous existence, the after-effects of various excursions can have either a temporary, or sometimes a permanent effect on our existence. Thus one might infer that something similar occurred during your 'dream'. Whether one should consider this as a 'real' excursion, or as one of the imagination only, may be a matter of interpretation - perhaps there is no difference in any case.

I had a somewhat parallel experience. I once woke up feeling I was in a different life and briefly I could access the memories from that life which were extensive, full and vivid and completely different than my present waking life.
It faded quickly.
Also I can recall whole dream series from this life and when I'm in the right state they seem to extend back through all the dreams I have ever had like a file drawer that opens up 
yeah we are probably a bit loopy Smile

Did this feeling go away and if so how long did it take?

As of today, it is not really noticeable. I suppose it took a week for it to not negatively affect me at all. It was mainly the suddenness and contrasting difference in my experience of reality, to a depth that made me question reality itself. It really did feel like a shift into a parallel reality. I guess you could say that now, it has become normal and I've forgot the 'patterns of reality' that my mind identified with previously.

As an aside, I've found that sometimes alternate personalities can come through suddenly, as if a switch has been thrown on, when in select circumstances. For example, a certain bunch of people together and their dynamic, along with a song, can shift one into a different place.

Not particularly! Actually, if they did, I don't remember now! I wonder if that is typical, as per your explanation? Maybe I'll remember something later.

I did have an experience a couple of years ago that was interesting to me. I was reading about something called dimensional jumping, and I found it all quite exciting if not absurd at the same time. The basic premise is that everything exterior to you is an imagination space, and you can pattern it to your liking. For example, I tried an experiment which the group recommends if you are skeptical. I can't remember exactly how I done it, but the results were very interesting. The simplest way of describing the technique was that you imagine that you will see something in the 'decision space' around you, and then you go about your day, not even thinking about it, when it will start to 'appear' in your life, as a pattern.

I basically didn't believe that there was anything to it, what ever 'it' was. So in doing my own experimentation into it, I choose a ridiculous and highly unlikely thing . I choose a dinosaur. So having done this and went about my day clearly not believing that a dinosaur would just randomly start to appear in my reality, I sat down in my own leisure time to watch the movie 'Inception' (quite apt actually!). I'm sure most of you have seen this movie because the subject matter is all about reality.

Well, we got to the last scene. The one where the totem is spinning. And remember the totem is the thing that the protagonist uses to determine if he is dreaming or if he is actually awake in reality. I'm watching the totem spin in this specific scene with a specific context and meaning and what do I see to the left of the totem? A bloody T-Rex dinosaur toy! Of all the scenes in the movie for that to happen, it was that specific scene, because it was the end of the movie and we never got to see the totem stop spinning to determine if he was really dreaming or not!

Now, whether that was really a 'hit' or not, it did make me gasp at the time. I'm not quite sure what to think of it now, other than another fascinating experience that I've had in my life so far.
