Visitor's Post: 'The dream starts normally with old friends playing basketball but then someone, in my dream, starts to come after me. I try to wake up by opening my eyes but they will not open. I use my fingers and forcefully try and open my eyes but they will not open. I know I'm dreaming but I cannot wake myself up.'

Hi Stu,
the presence of the old friends suggests whatever it is trying to catch up with you might be from the past. It would seem your attempt to escape from as much means you do not open your eyes to the issue being presented. Given there is an element of lucid dreaming going on I would suggest next time you have this dream dont try to wake up; just see where it takes you.

This thing about the inability to open your eyes or even the ability to wake yourself up and being aware that you are dreaming may possibly mean you have left your body and your spirit/soul hasn't fully re-attached itself to your temple/ your body I know this because I do this several times a month and through self-guided meditation prior to falling asleep I explore my mental abilities and strengths where in later dream times I can solve many conscious and subconscious issues I have within myself and about current situations in reality. it's scary at first but once you can be calm and be aware it actually becomes very intreging experience but be carefully you must always find your body and know where it is located because if you cannot find your way back you may put yourself in a comma... not fun and even scarier experience. I wouldn't attempt this alone.

Can't open eyes but right eye will open if I force it NEW

This was a very lucid dream, more realistic than any dream I recall. I won't go into the entire dream but what I found was interesting was that I was napping in my dream and could not open my eyes. Two or three times I forcefully, using my fingers, opened my right eye. Is there any significance to this being my right eye?
In the napping of when I was in the dream I felt I needed to go to the restroom. I was living in a home that wasn't my home in real life. Upon walking to try to find the bathroom with my eyes still closed, I came upon a mens prison adjacent to the basement that I never knew about. I saw the male prisoners in orange jumpsuits and simply went in there and washed my hands and went back out into the basement of the home I lived in. All the while my eyes we're shut but yet I knew where I was walking to. The part of the prison being there and forcing my right eye open is what I'm trying to figure out means.
