First, it was so real and so vivid. The type of dream with all five senses intact.
I "appear" on the scene.
It's a large, crowded swimming pool with a fair amount of people having a fun day out in the sun. It actually wasn't outside, but the ceiling was hundreds of feet high and the top was all glass (kind of like the Wave Pool in Ottawa) and you could literally feel the warm sun on your skin.
It's a lucid dream--SCORE! I immediately think,
Yessss I finally get to get to SWIM!!!!
and then I just f-ing Naruto-ran and cannonballed into the water. It was heavenly! Just the right temperature and even though there were people around nobody was too close to me and I was really enjoying it. That feeling of weightlessness...you can't beat it. Nothing is like it.
So then, remembering again that I'm in a dream, I thought why not do that trick where you quickly swim to the bottom and then you slowly release all the air in your lungs, so you can literally lie down on the bottom? That was always so weird and cool.
So, I do it! And it is just as fun as I remember. I feel that tightness in the chest--gimme air--and kick my way back up to the surface. Big breath. Everyone is having a great time around me and the vibe is so good! I think, why not do it again?
I repeat the process, except this time while I'm chilling on the pool's bottom, I decide to close my eyes and enjoy it.
Do not do this in a dream--this is bad??
In about three seconds' time, I felt my body physically DROPPING. Falling falling falling SO FAST falling falling and I just kept thinking,
That was at least eighty storeys...I HAVE to open my eyes...
I just kept hearing that in my head.
I opened my eyes, highly disturbed now, and then used my feet to push off the bottom and speed-swam to the top, and you know what I realized once I got up there? My lungs weren't tight.
I could now breath underwater.
I spent the rest of the night frolicking like a mermaid.
(ethereal_waves I patiently await your analysis, specifically. *LOL*! <3)
