    Dream Signs

    Spoiler for Warning Long List:
    Carbie Playa Beach Resort

    This is famously the first dream sign that I ever Identified as being a dream sign. It is the beach resort that my family stays at every year when we go to puerto rico. Unfortunately, it seems as though most dreams of this location I will either arrive already lucid or never think to reality check.

    I also notice that usually upon visiting the place in my dreams, I find that it is larger/more developed. I often see a large glass enclosure restaurant quite often. Sometimes I find that the beach has been polluted.

    This dream sign can sometimes generalize to any beach/tropical location. I have dreamed of a variety of different beach and island locations.

    Why I dream of this:I used to think that it was simply because I liked being at this place, but I think there is a little bit more to it than that. This is where my first LD took place, and I seem to have a connection to the place and return to it quite frequently.

    Sand Dunes

    This was another dream sign that I noticed fairly early on. I found that it would blend in nicely with the previous dream sign, because beaches are sandy and so are sand dunes. Though sometimes the sand dunes I see are just there without a beach in sight. I find it similar to when my parents drove me to northern Michigan when I was a kid and the soil was sandy and there were huge sandy slopes in the middle of the forest. I suppose it could simply be generalized as sand in any context.

    Why I dream of this: I can't say so for sure. It does connect nicely with several other dream signs in this category, and as a child, I did enjoy playing in the sand...

    Big waves/Drowning

    This wasn't the first dream sign that I picked up on when learning to lucid dream, but it was one of the first that I had as a child. It basically goes as such: I am in a lake or ocean or sometimes even a pool, and tremendously large waves are coming down on me, as though they are attempting to drown me. I've been having these dreams rather frequently since I was a child. I sometimes find that the waves have odd shapes such as being completely vertical or square.

    Why I dream of this: I don't know to be honest. Other people who interpret my dreams believe the waves to be symbolic of something else, since as a child, I loved to play in the water/waves whenever my family went to the beach, and drowning isn't one of my fears, since I am a good swimmer.

    Overly green/lush plant life

    This one is quite common in a wide variety of environments. I've seen it take over familiar environments such as my own neighborhood or town, or sometimes outside environments that I do not recognize. And, as the title suggests, the plant life takes on an unreal quality of vigor and clarity, often being more vivid than other elements of the dream around it. Sometimes the plant life doesn't have grounds in reality.

    Why I dream of this: I can't say so for sure. I've never been particularly interested in plant life. It could be reminiscent of El Yunque (The rainforest from Puerto Rico) or the other tropical environments that my dreams are trying to portray.


    This one goes hand-in hand with the previous dream sign, and I often see the two of them together. There is a logical association between the two. Lots of rain and humid weather is good for plants and can cause them to grow. But it can exist independently. I pick this one out not so much because I find that it occurs in my dreams a lot, but that it seems like the weather is exceptionally vivid in comparison to other elements of the dream. I don't get a lot of rain surprisingly, but there is a lot of thunder/dark clouds, as if there is always a storm brewing.

    Why I get this: I don't know for sure. As a child, I went through a phase where I wanted to be a meteorologist or storm chaser, but I've moved past that long ago. There might also be association with Puerto Rico in the lush plants and moist conditions are not unlike the rainforest we would visit when we traveled there every year.


    I've talked about this one before, how I actually made my dream guide into a dream sign, because she occurs in my dreams more often than most. As for why I associate her with the other dream signs involving my family going to Puerto Rico? In her character she was born and raised on a tropical island. I find it very odd how sometimes I can be talking to her, but not actually be lucid.

    Why I dream of this: Manei's frequent appearances were justified by her as simply doing her job as a dream guide.

    Being a character in a movie

    This is a very unusual dream sign, because I actually consider it a layer of lucidity above being a simple non-lucid dream. The dream sign being that I find myself being aware that I am a character playing out a story, acting in a movie, on a reality tv show, inside a virtual reality simulation, or in a book. Because of this, my take on the world is often different, in that I am aware that what I am experiencing is fake, but not in the sense that I am aware that it is a dream. In the case of the virtual reality, I often find that it is a sandbox style game where I am free to roam and experiment rather than having a specific objective.

    Why I dream of this: Being a writer who works on comic books might account for some of it. I never considered a career in drama/acting, and, from what I've experienced in arcades and demos, I'm actually not very fond of virtual reality, I find it disorienting and difficult to navigate. My best guess is that it is actually semi-lucidity making its way into more of my dreams.

    Space Travel

    These next four dream signs all go very well hand in hand, but I've noticed specific themes from all of them. These dreams generally involve space travel, with some element of science fiction involved. They often feel like realistic or near-future spacecraft and actual experimental technologies. (For example, referencing several countries working together to build a spaceship that uses ion engines to go to mars.) I've had these dreams since I was a young child. I used to get a lot of going to the moon as a child, but recently, I seem to be getting a lot more mars missions. Though any dream that involves spacecraft launching, docking, orbiting, traveling or landing counts toward this dream sign.

    Why I dream of this: I always figured it had something to do with how dreaming and space travel are similar in the regard that they allow exploration of something that is unexplored. (In lucid dreaming you explore the depths of your mind, in space travel you explore the depths of the cosmos.) I also recognize that

    Solar System Tour

    This dream references another specific dream situation. I find myself having a dream where I am viewing an alien solar system and being taught the names and positions of all of the planets by some entity. Upon awakening, I have generally forgotten a great deal of what the entity taught me, only having a basic memory of the layout of the system. (Suns, major planets, etc.) Generally speaking, the solar systems have fairly logical and realistic organization, but I have seen weird things such as black holes and stars that are green/purple/black/ or other unnatural colors.

    Why I dream of this: It is one of my more cryptic dream signs, and I am unsure why these dreams occur.

    Dream Skies

    This references all of the strange occurrences I see in the sky, including but not limited to seeing multiple suns or moons. This has caused me to become lucid on more than one occasion. However, I sometimes see even more exotic phenomenon; for example, the rare occasions where there is simply a massive gas planet filling up half the sky or a swarm of unique moons. This can overlap with the solar system tour.

    Why I dream of this: This might be from the other dream signs about space and planets/stars leaking in. Therefore, I assume that my tempered interest in space and science fiction causes this one to occur as well.


    While this one does not occur quite as often as the other dream signs in this middle layer, contact with extra-terrestrials is common enough to be listed. It ties in with the other dream signs involving spacecraft and near-future travel. A healthy fraction of the time, the extra-terrestrials are hostile, though this is not always the case. I find this one tied in a lot with the 'living a story' dream sign.

    Why I dream of this: Same rhetoric as the other dreams involving outer space. It is probably simply due to my fascination with the subject and the idea of contacting a race of aliens.

    Breaking my computer

    This one requires basically no explanation whatsoever. I often dream that I have broken my laptop computer.

    Why I dream of this: This occurs probably because I dropped my laptop once in real life and lost all of my data because my computer was broken...

    Middle/High School

    The funny thing was that in middle school, I dreamt of high school. I still dream of it now, being in college. The dream generally has some excuse that I forgot to take a class or go to graduation. I seem to get a lot of the gymnasium for some reason.

    Why I dream of this: Probably just temporal dissonance, disconnects between past and present.

    Ski Resorts

    I often dream of being at a skiing resort. I find this a stark contrast to my dreams of being on the beach or in a tropical location. I also find that the ski resort often has a confusing layout and/or a lot of chairlifts. I don't know why this a recurring dream though. I did my share of skiing as a child, but it never lead to any particularly impactful moments.

    Family Fight (Depreciated, no longer have this one)

    Like most families, mine has fights, and I often find myself skipping these dreams when it comes to journaling them here. Sometimes, the fights can be about something stupid and meaningless, just like in waking life.

    Eating Contests/Big Food Items
    (Depreciated, no longer have this one)

    This one requires little explanation. I dream a lot of DCs eating large amounts of food and participating in competitive eating events. Sometimes, like in a cartoon, their stomachs will get really big and round. Generally, I am not a participant, because, like in waking life, I tend not to have much of an appetite. This dream sign could occur because most of my friends are big foodies, though.

    Swords (Depreciated, no longer have this one)

    I used to dream of this one quite frequently, but it is what I consider a dormant dream sign. I used to wield a sword a lot, lucid or not.

    Roller Coaster Disaster (Depreciated, no longer have this one)

    I used to often dream that I was riding a roller coaster and the restraint was broken and I was holding on so that I would not fall out of the seat. Unsure of why this one occurred, I never liked riding roller coasters.

    Amputation/Medical Condition (Depreciated no longer have this one)

    I used to often false awaken in a hospital bed to find that my limbs had been amputated or that I had some horrible medical condition.

    Missing Sister

    This one occurs very rarely but I've always had it since I was a small child. The dream takes on a wide variety of plotlines and variants, but it always seems to center around the concept that I have a sister that I have not known about or met until now. Sometimes she was seperated from me at birth. Sometimes she was overseas and I haven't seen her since I was little. Or sometimes she died during birth. There are many variants on this plot.

    1. Yet another dream about going to Mars. This one involves a talking loaf of bread.

      by , 03-02-2015 at 03:18 AM (Lucid Time!)
      I had a dream about this giant ice rink that had been built out of snow/igloo blocks at the edge of my subdivision. Something to do with my dad, grandfather, hot cocoa and skating around the inside. It was lit up on the inside.

      For some reason, I find it hard to stay invested in this NLD. It was sort of lacking content.


      Something to do with being on a train, somehow connected to this dream. I do seem to dream about trains an awful lot given I've only ridden one a couple times in my life.

      I was with a crew undergoing a manned survey of Mars. Our lander touched down not far from [One of Mars' largest volcanoes]. We had a crew of six people total. I don't recall any names, genders, etc. Just that there were six of us.

      The lander came equipped with both an Ariel surveyor plane as well as a mobile analysis lab. Each one of these vehicles could hold two people, and the remaining two would stay with the lander.

      I got put on the crew to fly the airplane. Now the areal surveyor was launched from some kind of rail cannon on the lander so that it would have enough speed to fly in the thin atmosphere. But when It launched us there was some kind of malfunction and we had to land asap.

      I saw that we were going 411. Miles per hour? Meters per second? I don't know. I tried to gently nose the plane down. I was somehow able to see third person perspective and see that the landing gear was about to touch down in the red sand.

      We touched the ground briefly before flying off a sand dune like a ramp. I saw that our speed was now 123. We hit the ground, but one of the landing gear hit a rock and we rolled over. The air surveyor was destroyed, but me and the other astronaut somehow survived.

      But we had a new problem. We now only had the life support in our space suits to support us. Even if the mobile lab drove at full speed, they wouldn't be halfway to us by the time we were long dead.

      I actually became a little bit lucid here, and remembered that I had the ability to summon Sir Chuggingloaf. (Read this ancient dream to know who that is.)

      I don't know why I was thinking of that character, since he has only appeared one other time and it was over 10 years ago, but sure enough, I saw him fly down from the upper atmosphere. Only, in this dream, he wasn't a train, but rather a spaceship. Rather than a train gondola, he had a rocket booster and wings. He also had windows in his side.

      A ramp opened up. Somehow, I was now with a large party of astronauts (10+ of them) and we were all getting inside of the flying bread spaceship. I didn't get in.

      I also remember him looking like a cartoon superimposed on what had thus far been a very realistic looking dream. He smiled and flew off into the sky with everyone inside of him.

      Interpretations: Any dream that involves talking bread spaceships is beyond my ability to interpret. I do seem to dream of being on Mars a lot. I wonder why that is.
    2. Spaceship Crash-Somewhat Lousy Recall

      by , 10-28-2014 at 12:11 PM (Lucid Time!)
      Something shocked me into remembering many a more details about this dream.

      Something to do with some comedy movie that was mocking character tropes and cliches.

      I was exploring the outer reaches of A solar system with a large, highly advanced spacecraft.
      If I can remember correctly it was a single star system and a subsystem of binary gas planets, a green one and a milky white one. The green one was much smaller. Each one had an inner system of moons in its own gravity and there was an outer system of moons orbiting the common center of mass that both gas planets created.
      Eventually I found a moon with earth like conditions in a tight orbit around the green planet.
      I entered the atmosphere and intended to land near the ocean at the north pole, but as we were coming in near the shore, there was some kind of malfunction and we were coming in way too fast. I think the ship had wings but they were malfunctioning and not generating any lift. Landing there was going to be impossible, there were all these black rock towers amid the sandy beach area. My only choice was to turn the ship completely around and use the main engines to push us the other way. Two of them struck a rock tower as we came in and the ship 'landed' on its rear end with two less engines than it started with.
      Me and the others got out and saw how bad the damage was. Pretty bad. Two of the engines were completely gone, and the ship was pretty banged up from the impact. The hull entire hull had bent about 10 degrees, so we basically had no hope of every flying again.
      We figured it was good that everyone had survived and that at least we were on a planet with earth like conditions. We made contact with 'base' and asked about rescue.
      I began looking around at the different plant life on the planet. There were these fern-like plants with green and pruple pineapple like fruits on them. I asked one of the scientists if it was possible that we could use those as food; I didn't know if they were poisonous or not.
      I recall this scene were everyone got out of the spacecraft. It was very strange because there were only like twelve of us and the spacecraft was huge.
      The atmosphere became foggy and grey.
      I should really draw the ship we were on. It looked really cool...

    3. LD #101, The moon gets destroyed. More Planets

      by , 07-31-2014 at 12:18 PM (Lucid Time!)
      I am in my school's courtyard, but it feels different, like everything is facing the wrong way. S and A are there, along with a huge crowd of students. I think that my grandparents were there as well.
      I've gotten sick of dreaming up these scenes and not becoming lucid, so I began preparing specifically for them. And this time I actually wound up
      S, A and I are waiting for someone else. (C?) Upon becoming lucid I forget the plot of the dream and decide to manifest my dream guide. I think I saw her somewhere in the crowd for like a second. I decide to try and text her for some reason. I take out my phone and open up my contacts. Sure enough she is in there.
      I look in our text messages, and most of them are messages that she has sent to me. Some of them are written in an illegible language. She messages me something.
      I don't know why but I want to reply 'lol' to it. Now comes the hard part. Text messaging in a lucid dream.
      So sure enough I try several times to write a message, but it always changes. Eventually I just commit. I just look at the keyboard, type 'lol' and hit send before the words can change. Woot! Text messaged in a dream!
      I wake up moments after sending the text.

      Me and some friends are traveling on an escape pod from a much larger vessel in space. We had gone far out below the plane of the galaxy. Apparently we had been in cryo-sleep for hundreds of years, that being the reason for our desolate location.
      Upon awakening I took to the controls and tried to correct our course to return us to the galaxy. Took some doing given the fact that I couldn't tell what direction our ship was facing and only had some sort of galactic compass to help me.
      We went back into cryo for another few hundred years and when we came out we found we had returned to the galaxy. We began flying past a solar system and the dream changed. The plot about the escape pod was lost. I was taken out and the presence appeared.

      The presence showed the orbital arcs of the planets in a solar system. There were dozens of planets in this system, far more than our own solar system. Most of them were orbiting in the same line as the galaxy, but maybe five or six were orbiting 'vertically', going up over the poles of the star.
      The presence began explaining that this solar system (It was called the Var system) was the result of two solar systems colliding. We fly in close to the star and see that this in fact a triple star system. There is a large blue star, a medium sized yellow star, also orbiting vertically and a small red star farther out.
      The presence explains to me that this was the result of two solar systems colliding with one another. Their centers of gravity merged. It also explains that it is very dangerous because the planets in polar orbits could collide with the planets in regular orbits.

      And then, I'm back at my house. I look outside, and rising in the east is the moon, but it looks different... Holy @#$%...
      New cool experience for me!!!-oblivion157.jpg
      Something like that only the moon looks as though it's actively being destroyed. The entire moon is 'smoking' and explosions are erupting out of the surface. It was by far some of the most vivid imagery I have ever seen in a dream. About half the moon was gone when I saw it.
      Everybody is outside, watching in awe at the destruction. Then, what was left of it exploded in a massive blast, as if the death star had just done a test run there.
      I waited 10...15...20...25...seconds. After about a minute a wall of high-speed meteors slammed into the earth's atmosphere. Debris of all sizes impacted. One was even close enough to cause a sonic boom and take out the windows in everyone's houses.
      I run inside. My parents say to get my things, we are evacuating. I run upstairs and get my computer. I think to check the news and see why the moon exploded. No, no time. I get my computer, a '25' dollar bill and my crystal that I use for meditation. For some reason it looks like I wrote all over it with a black magic marker.

    4. Flying though space

      by , 03-29-2012 at 02:22 AM (Lucid Time!)
      I actually had this dream a few days ago and forgot to write about it until now. Writing about my dreams seems to impact my dream recall, so it's important that I write about dreams that I've had every chance that I get.

      I was watching a spaceship fly though a galaxy. I can remember the ship looking a little bit like a sports car with rocket boosters on the back of it. The ship was made out of cheap-looking metal plates and had a bluish glass over the cockpit.
      The spaceship finally arrived at what seemed to be it's destination. A yellowish-white star with several planets around it. I can remember being able to see all of the planets in one view.
      There was a rocky planet, probably about the size of earth very close to the star. But it was red like mars. Then there was a planet a little further out that looked like the moon.
      The spaceship arrived at two gas giants. One of them was green and had two rings around it sort of forming an X. The other was purple and had a large moon that I think was covered in ice. This seemed to be the planet that the spaceship was headed to but the dream ended at this point.

      I've had dreams like this before. I'm not sure what they mean.
