So a couple nights ago, I had this incredibly mushy dream. It was romance galore.
Then I woke up and had this rare moment of detachment from myself. I was on the sidelines watching my thoughts, and from there, I began to think about Ni id.
I started to ponder how I can’t really recall any times my conscious mind has encountered the deep and dark Ni id. I experienced the whole Princess motif, but knowing that there was another layer to Ni id I wasn’t seeing was something I quickly wanted to remedy. Seeing as this probably wasn’t happening any time soon, I thought maybe some musings I had on it could come of use to someone else. As a result, I shared some of my musings on the Ni id in this post.
But still, it didn’t make sense. I felt that the Ni id was deeper than that. How deep? Where do I look?
Hidden in plain sight.
I have always had an imaginative mind. I daydream so deeply to the point that I am always startled when I return to reality. 5 minutes in my mind is a couple seconds in reality. Sometimes I slip into a daydream without any intention of doing so. You can see how this can cause some problems when in class or doing important work.
My dreams are like a strange concoction of the past, present, and future. They warp and intermingle, just to have a sprinkle of want added. Good want, bad want. Nothing is too taboo that I couldn’t see it. Honestly, I have done and seen some terrible things in the dream world. Sometimes I can tell when I am dreaming, but other times I have screamed to be released from them, thinking that I have been thrown into some alternative reality I could not escape from. I have seen some good things there, but the bad stuff is really hard to stomach.
After considering these things, I am tentatively concluding that this is where my Ni id resides. The dream world. The intersection of reality and fantasy. The subconscious. Seems fitting.
What about you guys? Do you think your id has free reign in your dreams, or is it more palpable to you? Do you think Ni id can manifest very powerfully in dreams or daydreams, or it is in some different realm of the mind?
Let’s see if we can figure something out on this!
