My Christian Counsellor asked me if I would inviite Jesus into my DD. My character isn't a christian, or actually, religion just isnt a part of what goes on in my mind when I DD. It's always been my own personal space where I can do what I like and it's safe. I've always thought that if God knew what happens there (and of course He does) He wouldn't like it at all.

But anyway, my homework was to invite Him into a DD. I tried it last night. And I guess it wasn't what I expected. Actually I don't know what I expected to happen. But there He was. Dressed in modern clothes of course. He said hello. I said hi. Then He said the most profound thing...

"Who are you?" Then my DD stopped. He was actually talking to me. ME. I know Him, you see. Can He really get to know the character in my DD? And is it important for Him to....I'm thinking not.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts for now. I wonder what my counsellor will say about this. I'll have to have a think on these things. Thanks for reading. xo

Thanks Roxanne. I'm sure He knows all about my DDing, I just get the feeling that it's like an idol to me. Will talk more in "Inviting Jesus into my DD - part 2".

I am really interested in knowing how this progresses.  

@Bibby, I also imagine that I am sitting at Jesus' feet during the Sermon on the Mount.  I just read Pope Benedict's book on Jesus and it gave me much the same feeling - like I was right there.

 Jesus said over & over that we should not be so hard-hearted.  I see so many here being really hard on themselves.  I use pictures of Jesus that seem ethnically correct - it always bothers me when they picture him with light coloring.  Semites were dark skinned with black hair & brown eyes.   I like to look at these when I pray.  Saint Teresa of Avila advises us to do this when we pray as a way of talking right to Him.  He doesn't care if we drift off into DD's.  He knows this is our tendency.   Sometimes I talk with him as the "real" me & sometimes as my DD persona - I am sure He doesn't care.  I find that sometimes  if I just persevere, regardless of which persona I am starting with, I am able to just focus on Him.  Even just for moments.  It's a real feeling of being loved.  And that is all He wants to do.

Thanks for your encouragements. I see my counsellor today. Will be in touch as to how it goes. I'm back to DDing normally. But getting tired of it. Does anyone ever get tried of the same old, same old...?

This is interesting.  I read the Bible daily and I often find myself daydreaming that I'm there in that time experiencing what is being described.  One of my favorites is Matthew, Chapters 5,6,&7, which is the famous Sermon on the Mount.  DDing that I'm there listening.  It's cool.

Wow...I'm not at all religious...But your counselor really asked you to do so?? How did you feel about your counselor asking you to do such a personal thing?

This is really interesting as my biggest issue with dd is when I am praying, in my religion we pray 5 times Adam and in preyer my mind can never focus on the preyer I am constantly drifting into daydream and then consciously bringing myself out throughout the whole sequence of preyer. which makes me feel bad as I don't mind dd affecting any aspect of my life but not my relationship with god. However in my preyer I felt myself begin to drift to dd I thought of this blog. In my religion god does not have a particular shape or face so I began to think of gods presence watching me and my thoughts and immediately my focus turned back to the preyer and remained there. I then came across a saying of the prophet that we should prey in the knowledge that god can see us even tho we can't see him. But with my imaginative skills I can feel that presence. Thankyou for sharing this it helped a lot xx
