The Universal Peace Covenant, a document of great importance, states that “Living Peaceably begin by Thinking Peacefully”. This brings the idea of lucid dreaming – being consciously aware of what you are thinking in the day and in the night – alive. What came to be called the “Peace GLiDE” revealed the impact that walking the walk and talking the talk has. Dr. Barbara O’Guinn Condron, GliDE director, reports: On September 6, 2009, I witnessed a unique opportunity to explore the human potential for dreaming peace – in the day and the night. This 3-step experiment included 100 people from four countries and fourteen states in the United States.
STEP ONE: The experiment began when participants awoke on Saturday,September 5th. They were instructed to concentrate on the thought of PEACE throughout the day. Each participant defined his or her own perimeters. No limitations were set by researchers. At the end of the day, participants journaled their thoughts and experiences from the day.
STEP TWO: Instructions for dream incubation focused on meditation andvisualization. Dreamers prepared for sleep in their usual fashion. Then, participants incubated the following thought: “Living peaceably begins by thinking peacefully” by handwriting the words 100 times. Following this, participants were asked to draw a picture of this thought. Then, participants were instructed to go to sleep.
STEP THREE: Recording/submission of dreams 09.06.2009 along with dreamer’s comments and/or interpretation of their dream experience.
While a quarter of the 100 dreamers participated from their homes, most were attending a National Teachers Conference at the College of Metaphysics in Missouri. This added the element of group experience to the experiment. To examine how thinking about peace during the day impacts the following night’s dreams, we extracted data collected from 38% of the participants. These dreamers completed all three required steps. The following dreams, images, and stream of consciousness journal entries were part of the documentation from this group of dreamers who followed all protocols for this experiment. These 38 were students and teachers from the School of Metaphysics. School of Metaphysics study includes a graduated and ever-deepening series of Tesla-like “mental operations” for developing concentration, meditation, and visualization skill. These are practiced daily by each student for the development and realization of the Self. SOM students log, study, interpret, and respond to their dreams daily. On September 6th, 29 of the 38 remembered a dream. That’s a 76% recall compared with 15% recall for the nonstudent participants. Of the remaining 62 dreamers who fulfilled partial experiment requirements, 9 remembered dreams. These and other findings are included in a paper called “The Peace Freq: How Lucid Dreaming may be a Key to a More Peaceful World” that Barbara is presenting at the International Association of Dreams 2016 Psiberdreaming Conference. The paper, which includes the complete findings, will be posted here November 1st.

I was in a store like a Wal-Mart. I was walking down the pet food aisle and there was a rancid smell. I looked in a trash can at the end of the aisle and there was murky water in it. (It was near the fish tanks). I alerted someone who worked there. I continued to shop and not very long after that I walked back and the can was clean and I turned down another aisle there was a dead squirrel on the floor. It had been dead a long time and was stiff. I thought “What is a dead squirrel doing in here? I was dreading having to tell them of another problem. When I turned the corner, a man was sweeping under stuff getting a lot of hidden dirt out in the open. I realized that was how the squirrel became exposed into the open.read more

I was in and at the College of Metaphysics. Tents went up and down. The song of “One Voice” was playing in background. The violin part was stronger than rest. It was like a movie playing of the peace event. I noticed in the dream that the music of the violin was dominant like it was a different song. I even thought it was a different song then realized it was a part of the “One Voice”.read more

Last night I dreamt I woke up in my tent and water was dripping down in a steady stream onto the middle of my blanket. I looked up to find a hole torn in the top of my tent and it was raining. When I looked for the cause of the tear, I noticed a dark shape stuck in on the top of the tent, so I kicked it off (from inside the tent). I looked out the tent flap to see a vultures/eagle like bird dead on the ground. I knew it’s talons had caused the tears in the canvas.read more

Upon further investigation we learned the dreamers heard about dreamschool from either their school or teacher. Using reasoning and [...]read more
