Remember, we can feed through a touch, but our spirits extend
far beyond the limits of our body. Long-distance draws that are
just as intimate and intense as feeding flesh to flesh can be
When you are starved for energy and no opportunity to
adequately sate your needs has arrived, you may find that you will
send yourself out in dreams. This is much like astral travel,
although it is largely an unconscious activity. You will dream of
someone close to you. This can be a family member, a good friend,
a current or a former lover. This person need not be located
physically close to you, as the subtle reality does not know
distance as we know it in the physical world. Your body may be
confined to your bedroom, yet your dream-self may wander hundreds
and even thousands of miles away.
The dream will seem unusually vivid. It is very likely that the
dream will also be lucid, and you will realize at least in part
that you are dreaming, but that this other person is somehow
actually present in the dream. In the course of the dream, you
will have an exchange with the target person. The exchange can be
overtly vampiric, or it may manifest itself in an erotic context.
The person who you have visited this way will wake up tired and
worn just as if you had fed directly from them that night. Often,
they will recall the dream as well, and if it is possible to
compare experiences, you will find that certain elements of the
dreamscape were shared by both people involved in the dream.
With practice, you will come to be able to distinguish between
your ordinary dreams and these dream-walking experiences. The
process does not always have to be unconscious. You may gain
mastery over this ability and dream-walk at will. However it
remains a survival technique inherent in the vampiric nature.
Therefore, especially in periods of dire need, you may find your
soul wandering regardless of your personal control.
