Some of the characteristics of the Mirror Dream are:
- Your Elder Shield and Mirror Dancer have created a doorway to the fifth dimension which allows you to leave your body.
- You are within the context of the dream and all your senses are at work. In other words, you are a part of the dream and you can taste, smell, feel, hear and touch in the dream.
- You are in the dream as an act of power and your psychic gifts are present and active.
- Your recall is 60-80 percent stronger within this dream.
- Frequently, a dream teacher will work with you and teach you something about the reason for your existence in this lifetime.
- The windows of prophecy are open.
During Mirror Dreaming, your body temperature rises, and you look dead and will not respond to the calling of your regular name. However, you will respond to a sacred or medicine name. Frequently, you will wake up in a bed wet from perspiration.
