I probably would have remember the previous part of my dream if the after part hadn't been so familiarly strange. Actually, I do remember the last part of it, which led into the sliding part. I was in a car driving down a highway, and I remember that as I was driving along I was passing turns to get off the highway that were to the left (but I don't recall seeing any that were off to the right). I kept feeling like I should take a turn sooner or later because something told me that sooner or later there wasn't going to be anymore. After passing what seemed like 20 or so exits, I realized that I'd missed the last one to either turn left or turn around. I think what made it seem a risk was the fact that as I was continuing down the highway I began to speed up so turning would have flipped my car, but after I passed the last turn I started to worry and now things were start to go from daytime to dusk and then dark in only a few moments.
In desperation I spun the steering wheel hard left and caused the car to spin into a 180 which left me facing the other way but the moment my car was facing the other way it began to speed up again going the opposite direction. And now that I was in the dark heading the other way there was a sinister feeling I got the further back I traveled and the furthered I traveled the more intense it got, like there was some final destination which could only lead to a confrontation.
And now the sensation changed. Everything was dark and though I was previously in a car in the dark traveling down the road I was now what only be described as, sliding along my belly on sand. It reminded me of when I was young and I would lay on the beach at the edge of the surf and wait for the final ebb of a wave to softly pick me up and drag me back towards the ocean. Only now the feeling was that of moving forward along an unseen road at an accelerated speed in the opposite direction I'd just come.
And there was a feeling. An all to familiar feeling of what approached/what I was moving towards.
In previous lucid/dreams I've had moments where I've woken up and been completely conscious but had my body be completely frozen. And though my physical body is unable to move I can sense and sometimes see things in the room, only that which is there isn't that which is perceivable by my physical eyes. And depending on the situation and presence I feel what can only be described as a feeling of hatred and/or wrath which emanates from said presence as a tangible emotion.
As I was progressing down this dark road and approaching what I felt, I suddenly became away of a presence. By sheer strength of will I slowed myself down and tried to turn around but whatever force was drawing towards it wouldn't let me go. Know what was coming was inevitable and in many ways has happened to me all my life I decided to confront it and fight it.
The reason this particular time was memorable was because in all my previous experiences of confronting this it, I was never strong enough to fight. I was always frozen and immobilized. But this was different. I was angry and tired or always being scared or frightened beyond physical words. And I imagined two swords in my hands (which I've tried to do many times before but never could) and suddenly now, there was manifested in my hands two blades coming out from my hands but a part of me. And I let my anger (a more righteous anger then hatred kind of anger, sort of like final justice) strengthen me. I was still scared as crap but now I was just ready for it to come. Of course mind you, all the while I'm still trying to wake myself up because, swords or now swords and control or no control, I still didn't want to be in this situation and finally at the moment before impact, I awoke.
As always, I was exhausted, like a drained sort of tired, not a physical tired and tried to shake off the experience. I started to fall back asleep in a moment and soon found myself being slowly pulled back to that moment (even though I wasn't in it yet, I knew it lurked there beyond consciousness) and forced myself awake again and turned on the light next to my bed and stayed awake till the feeling passed.
For those of you who may subscribe to the thought that there could be other existences out there besides ourselves, you may be able to fathom what I was experiencing. If you do and/or have any thoughts please let me know. I have countless other instances to share in detail along with my own very unscientifically based conclusions and thoughts.
