How do I know it's not made up by my mind? It was different from all of the other dreams. This one, I felt everything. The wind blowing, the birds chirping, I touched the ground, I could smell the flowers, everything was beautiful and had a glow to it.
The sky was dark, full of sparkling stars. I was walking down my street and saw a lady in a white, loose toga. She looked almost like me, except, she looked more Asian/Native American. Her skin was a light tan that glowed close to golden yellow. Her hair was black and silky. Her eye's were brown has a perfect face. Her hair moved as if she were to be underwater(but wasn't). She was waiting for me by a tree, it wasn't far. I asked her, "Are you my higher self?"
She said, "Yes."
I asked if I was allowed to ask more questions about her. She said I needed permission from...I forget who. Then she said I have to meditate and something about chakras. I think she said something about balancing them.
Then something about my roots being Japanese. Then she mentioned the word 'Okami'(Jap. word for wolf). Then vanished.
I'm not asking for a dream interpretation, just wanted to know if lucid dreaming is a reliable way of contacting not only your higher self, but other unseen forces/beings.
