Pendulum Divination

IMG-2990I can make no claims about the credibility of pendulum divination but I find the idea of it interesting and I’ve dabbled with it occasionally. This morning I got out my pendulum and posed some questions. I can’t say for sure that the answers I got came from deep within my unconscious mind or were wishful thinking but some of the answers were unanticipated.

I started with general questions about my efforts to have lucid dreams. My divinations with the pendulum indicate that I may very well be having lucid dreams but not remembering them because I’m unconsciously blocking or repressing the memory of them.

Further questioning indicated that I believe my dreams to be important and I want to remember my dreams and that my conscious mind wants to remember them as well. Another line of questioning inferred that this blockage may go back to unresolved repressed memories of childhood nightmares which set in motion a pattern of repressing dreams and creative endeavors. It may even be possible that I could be having unremembered recurring nightmares.

I’m hoping that through this divination process I’ve opened up a dialogue with my self to allow myself to have (and remember) a lucid dream in which I can resolve the issue and be more open to remembering my dreams.

All this brings up a couple of questions. Is it possible to have a lucid dream and not remember it? Could I have a lucid dream where, in the dream, I’m fully aware that I’m dreaming but, afterward, my memory of it is blocked or repressed?

  1. Interesting post.

    I think that’s possible. Especially if the lucid dream is early on in the night. It’s hard enough to remember dreams, especially if we have to carry the memory all the way through the entire night and through other dreams we have afterwards. I recently listened to a podcast that suggested this exact thing (not the repressing part, but that seems possible as well). It was more on astral projection and the possibility of consciously having an astral projection experience or lucid dream, but then being too tired to wake up from the experience afterwards in order to remember it. The podcast suggested making attempts at these things after 4 – 6 hours of sleep in order to have a better chance at recovering the memory.

    Good luck!

    1. Thanks. I sometimes remember dreams from early in the morning but if I don’t write them down right away, they’re lost. Just about everything I’ve heard or read about WBTB says to do it 4 to 6 hours after going to bed so that most of the deep non-REM sleep is out of the way. That makes sense and waking from a dream after a WBTB it would probably be much easier to remember.

      I’ve started working a part-time evening shift a few days a week which allows to to sleep a little later in the morning and wake up naturally. Still I often wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning either from a dream or to use the bathroom so I use the opportunity to try WBTB/WILD. I haven’t been staying up for more than just a few minutes before going back to bed. I should try to stay up longer, maybe the next time.
