    Regular Dream Characters

    Dream Characters

    -Manei: My dream guide. Apparently her full name is Maneimonei Qui Tarr, but

    -Marcus. A dream character that I befriended and became a recurring dream character. He seems to be an inventor who creates sci-fi technologies within my dreams. He seems to have left, but he's referenced a lot in my earlier DJ entries.

    -Jack. He was a dream character that seems to have left. He used to be like my dream guardian, but he was never really needed so he faded away.

    1. Almost a WILD.

      by , 03-27-2012 at 08:47 PM (The Quest for Nightly Lucidity)
      I was lying in bed, falling asleep. I had no intentions of WILDing or really having a lucid. I was just tired and wanted to go to sleep, so I was letting my mind wander.
      I started to enter sleep paralysis, something I'll admit I'm starting to get used to. From here, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and try to WILD. My main concern was breathing, because the last time that I tried SP, I gave up because I was concerned with not feeling myself breathing. I tried to settle in with deep slow breaths and calm down, but I was FREAKING OUT.
      I decided to focus directly on incubating a dream, with hopes exiting the sleep paralysis as soon as possible. I chose to incubate the dream in a desert. I'm not really sure why I chose a desert. I suppose that I assumed that it would be a blank canvas and I could later change it into whatever dream I wanted.
      I conjured an image of a desert into my head. I could see rolling sand dunes and sparse clouds. I tried to imagine myself there. The sleep paralysis faded, and I woke up. The entire experience, though, only lasted what seemed to me to be about 20-30 seconds.

      I really hope that this weekend, when I can afford to lose some sleep, I can attempt a WILD after waking up, instead of doing them directly to bed.
