Flash Dreaming (definition by Donna): a state of dreaming where pictures and images flash across your vision. Your eyes are closed during this state and you are in a half awake/half asleep state. Typically happens in the early morning hours (although I’ve had them throughout the night), and you are able to sense your eyes moving very fast behind your lids.
I coined this phrase. I have no idea what these types of dreams are. I have been having these sort of dreams for about 2 years. Most of the time I cannot interpret or recognize anything that I am seeing. I only feel myself in this non-sleep and non-awake state and I can feel my eyes moving very fast as the images flash by. I’ve assumed that these states were a journey that spirit was taking me on. They were meant for rapid shifts in my consciousness and all I knew was they were nothing I could control, so I just hung on for the ride as the images flashed. I was never able to make out any images. When it started, all I could do was stay in that ‘state’ and allow it to happen. I always thanked my guides for whatever was happening on this deeper level of consciousness. Maybe they were clearing out some things for me. Things that I no longer needed or needed to process for that matter. That explanation felt good, so I went with it.
I only knew of one other person who had these. That was my friend who recently passed away. I’ve not been able to find out anything online about these dreams/experiences–then something changed…
About 2 months ago, I started to ask to be shown some of the scenes, to attempt to understand or ‘see’ what was happening. The images are fast, so I had to really concentrate and be more present with the fact that I was dreaming–kind of like a lucid dream. During my most recent flash dream, I saw the picture below. It was something that spirit knew I could relate to and it represented a date for me. Where it would normally show a year at the end of a Facebook page, this time instead of…let’s say 2014…it showed up as 4440. The year 4440!!!
What does it mean? What are they telling me? Was I traveling to that time? Had I already experienced that year? Was I downloading something from that year that could help me now? Help US now?
I have no clue. If you have experienced these types of dreams, please contact me and let me know what you think. If you haven’t had these flash dreams, then ask to have one. And then be present and trust. Leave no room for doubt.
Someone on Facebook just mentioned ‘hypnagogic’ to me. Here is what I found on Wiki and I like it! I’m going to ask for more insight during this time.
Thanks, Jonny Clam!
“The hypnagogic state can provide insight into a problem, the best-known example being August Kekulé’s realization that the structure of benzene was a closed ring while half-asleep in front of a fire and seeing molecules forming into snakes, one of which grabbed its tail in its mouth. Many other artists, writers, scientists and inventors — including Beethoven, Richard Wagner, Walter Scott, Salvador Dalí, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and Isaac Newton — have credited hypnagogia and related states with enhancing their creativity. A 2001 study by Harvard psychologist Deirdre Barrett found that, while problems can also be solved in full-blown dreams from later stages of sleep, hypnagogia was especially likely to solve problems which benefit from hallucinatory images being critically examined while still before the eyes.”
UPDATE October 2016:
I had another one of these dreams the other night. I’ve had a few since first posting this.
There was one where I saw the image of a man’s face many times over the course of what seemed like years, in my dream. The other morning, I had one and could feel it coming on. I immediately fell into a deep sleep for a few moments.
The few days before this one, I was struggling with old feelings of unworthiness. The morning I awoke from this particular ‘flash dream,’ I felt renewed! All was right with my world and I was processing the thoughts I’d been having recently about the origin of ‘feelings’ for the human race.
If you are interested in a conversation with me about what I’ve discovered, email me. DBoyleMedium@gmail.com I have another blog where I go into the beginning of our time as a human race with ‘feelings.’
Life had certainly taken some pretty amazing turns for this soul. How about you?
