The Dreamer Creates the Dream

lucid-dreaming1

Here is one of the fascinating things about the phenomenon of dreaming – you are simultaneously creating the dream and  experiencing the dream as something new and unforeseen.  No matter how many times I ponder this, it still blows me away.

Now think upon these things:

~ how many times have we heard, à la the “Schrödinger’s Cat” thought experiment, that in quantum mechanics it requires an observer to collapse the wave function to bring a potential state into a reality.

~ So just as the dreamer creates the dream,  the Observer Creates the Observed

~ And is this not an exact parallel? How many times have we heard that this world in which we live is either literally or figuratively a dream?

Each observer co-creates the shared dream in which we live.

 

And now add to this these sparkling words of insight from my soul-sister Tania Marie ~

“…the more vibrationally aligned we are with life, the more synchronous experiences we have.”

Are not these synchronicities the collapse of the wave function, the observer creating the observed, the dreamer creating the dream?

Don’t we experience the unfolding of life in same way that we experience the unfolding of a dream ~ you are simultaneously creating the reality and experiencing the reality as something new and unforeseen.

Are not synchronicities the manifestation and the evidence that we are creating our own reality?

  1. So fascinating and, I believe, true. I don’t know if anyone will ever fully step into the full comprehension of the possibilities inherent in this. But I keep hoping 😉 Great post! Peace . . .

    • It seems so simple, and yet I can still barely grasp it. I trust that by writing it down, I can begin to live it more fully. Thank you! and peace to you too…

  2. I had to read this a few times to fully take in its meaning…we create every moment as it happens, and through our reactions to our observations, we have the ability to choose…that is a powerful observation…and yet, as you said, so simple.

    • Well, you’ve added another nuance / dimension, actually, to the discussion. Thank you for that. That is something I have considered over the years, that each circumstance we find ourselves in, we always have a spectrum of choices of how to respond, with at least once choice that furthers our evolution upwards, and others that lead downwards. Many thanks for your comment!

  3. Great post Cnawan, I too am digesting this knowledge as best I can. Alberto Villoldo says “We can dream the impossible into being” and I believe we can because of the choices we make each day. It takes effort to dream the impossible into being but from discipline and practice, overtime, we can have full access to manifesting our dreams.

  4. powerful perspectives to ponder (hey say that 10 times fast!) 😉 love your introspective depth and the addition of your comment on the “spectrum of choices” for response that we have available. there’s such beauty in seeing the collective as dream weavers freely spinning creative webs that are entwined together, building upon each other…and then to take it further and see source split into the dream weavers to execute the limitless joy of creating evolutionary experiences. thank you for this post and for the quote mention. LOVE creating with you! ❤

  5. Reblogged this on Tania Marie's Blog and commented:
    This is a thought-provoking by my soul brother, Cnawan Fahey that goes hand-in-hand with this month’s “Dream Challenge” and dream theme.

    This was my comment to Cnawan when I read his post:

  6. Sometimes when I think back at the older poetry of China in both Daoist and Chan (Zen) traditions it seems these ideas were already sitting there like forgotten music that is once again coming to light in the naturalisms of science. Strange that.

  7. Great post! It makes me think about synchronicity and dreaming in a new way. I had never thought about the simultaneous creation and experiencing of life and dreams in quite this way. I will have to contemplate this more, it’s a bit mind blowing when I think about it. 🙂

    • Thank you, Karen! As I’ve said in other replies, even though I get this, a full comprehension keeps slipping through the filaments of my brain. Difficult to get a firm grasp upon this.

  8. Cnawan, your words ring true, and yes, I have read about this in many a book, yet my brain can barely grasp the concept. We are much more powerful then we will acknowledge, and if we can wrap our heads around that we are in a dream, and that we are the creators of that dream, then anything can happen. I had a repeating “terror” day dream occur, whenever I closed my eyes a few months back. Then one day, I deliberately thought a new way to have this dream while I was having the dream, changing the outcome, the colors, and thereby creating something good. Since then, that dream has not reoccurred and my life, has improved. Now that IS something to really ponder. What exactly did I do? I knew I was dreaming, and I took the initiative to change the outcome because I did not like the outcome. And somehow, even though that dream was symbolic, it seems to have transferred into my “3D life” because life has definitely improved. Just wow!!! Love the way your mind thinks!!! Thank you! Love, Amy

    • So fascinating, Amy. Thanks so much for sharing. Reminds me of NLP methodology – Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Lots of threads to tie together here, and your comment adds another. This is something I want to implement more in my life. Blessings!

      • When we are aware, and take action even not knowing the outcome, what happens, sometimes, just makes my jaw drop. I was so “fed up” with this terror dream I just decided right there it was not going to torment me anymore and I would change it right then. And what do you know? I did! Ask me what exactly I did, I couldn’t tell you. But I know it was real because it is affecting my 3D life. Blessings to you as well, Cnawan!! Have a wonderful day!!! Dream our dreams …. as only we can BE. (smile) xx Amy

  9. Puzzling. I just recently started wondering about the whole creamer creating the dream thing. How do I come up with this stuff? I wonder. And the analogy does help me to understand the quantum Physics thing: observer creating the observed.

    • Have to say, your comment perfectly accompanies your chin-on-hand thinkers pose in your picture. That aside, yes, 1) remarkable how we come up with this stuff and 2) so remarkable, the veil that exists between the part of us that is doing the creating and the part of us that is doing the experiencing .

  10. I’m curious if you believe that everything in a dream is being created by the dreamer? In native cultures all over the world they see dreaming as a portal. A means of connecting with guides and a much larger story we are merely tapping into. Loved this piece and the questions it posed.

    • That’s an important point to make. There are different types of dreams. Certainly some of them are inspired, having a higher source. Thank you.

  11. Reblogged this on The Dream Well and commented:
    I always enjoy being reminded to stop and think about the mysteries we often take for granted… like the fact that we both observe and yet create the dreams we have. I hope you also enjoy these musings…
