    task of the month dreams

    1. TotM August 2017 - Basic I

      by , 08-06-2017 at 07:12 AM
      For context, this was a DILD from an FA and was the dream that finally broke my 1 month dry streak!
      I wake up and do everything as normal. However, when I am dressing I decide to do a RC. IT checks out so, as usual I start do see everything blurry. I try to stabilize but it doesn't work too well... A then decide do head down the stairs. When I reach the bottom everything turns dark for a few seconds and then I see clearly for the first time in the dream!!
      I head to the kitchen to try to eat something, but I decide to do the "Google Search" task instead. I grab my phone, which was, somehow, in my pocket, and turn it on. It shows no signs of abnormal behaviour. I open Chrome and search "dream lucid". The first three results are videos and the first is titled "OMFG - Lucid Dream". Then there are a few links to webpages with LD induction methods and one link to Wikipedia that says something about oxygen, nitrogen and 23 years... After that I wander a bit and lose lucidity

    2. TOTM August - advanced i

      by , 07-31-2017 at 01:24 AM (Journeys through Spacetime)
      I have five fingers, but something isn't quite right. I look at my watch and I can make no sense of it! I look out of the dark retreat and see the moon shining brightly. I remember the Task of The Month and try to turn it blue. At first takes on a purple tint, but eventually it turns a stunning iridescent blue. I fly out the window and the rest is in my private DJ.

    3. Came close to viewing my own birth, was very lucid.

      by , 07-19-2017 at 11:58 AM
      Dark room lucid dream where I had a false awakening and was able to do the nose pinch reality check. Most of the dream was me in my own house and trying to turn on a light switch. None seemed to work. Eventually I go outside and look up to see "Star man" who is a reoccurring character in my dreams who is the outline of a man in the sky formed from stars. I go back inside and decide I want to try the jump into a painting challenge, but when I jump into a painting in my living room, I wake up instead.

      I go back to sleep and manage to have another lucid dream. This is another false awakening and already know it's a dream. In my room I see a "Goosebumps" book that doesn't actually exist called Escape from Werewolf Camp" with a picture of a wolf standing in front of a cabin. The rest of my room is being packed up. I find my dad watching an episode of the simpsons where the kids are giving reports on various generals. I see a painting nearby and look at it, trying to imagine what jumping inside it will be like. It's a grassy hill with a few houses on it, and in the background are these skyscrapers. The dad dream character says it looks like a metropolis. I jump into the painting and find myself on the grassy hill for about a second before I wake up.

      I then go back to sleep and have a gambling dream where I am playing a sort of memory game but the cards keep getting mixed around. I then realize that it's a dream because I'm not on the internet playing a game, that I'm playing this game on the street somehow. I decide to just start walking down the street while talking about how I knew I was lucid since I'm talking to people online but without a mic or even wifi.

      I go from running to me rolling down the street on a skateboard and I was still lucid and decided that instead of continuing the painting challenge for literally the fifth time I would instead watch my own birth, and that in the playground I was headed for would be a time machine. When I reach the playground I see this piece of a jungle gym that's shaped like a car rolling around and I declare that's my time machine and I need to catch it. I chase it around before finally catching it and find the environment around me slowly changing into the front of a hospital. I approach the hospital and see that it is called the "Ethnically Hopeful" hospital, meaning racial harmony. I don't know the name of the hospital I was born at so I figure this might as well be it. I go inside, down a hall to a waiting room and tell the woman at the front that I'm here to watch a birth and she asks "Oh you're (my full name) here for the birth of (my full name)? I realize that my future self must have done this for me, and that it will be fun to go full circle and do that in a dream. I take the ID she gives me and take an elevator up to the twelfth floor. Unfortunelty I woke up when I actually reached the floor, but not before sharing the elevator with a Dream character who I had to keep from messing with the stop button on the elevator. I asked her what her name was because I remembered that was a challenge but instead of replying she turned to me and I recognized her as a character from a short story I read about a large woman in an elevator who scared a boy who had a broken leg and had to use the elevator. That's how I knew she would press the stop button.

    4. TOTM advanced 1

      Relevant part:

      My dream guide calls me and takes me to the interior a large white cube. He reprimand me and suggests I try my synesthesia exercises. There is a liquid mirror surface, which I can manipulate. I use visual manipulation along with auditory to produce magic!
      At first I produce a surreal forest, and I receive beautiful orchestral music with tasteful hints of trumpets.
      I now jump in and find myself in a forest, which seems to be quite alien indeed...

    5. Summary of last week | Two bonus ToTM attemps

      by , 06-27-2017 at 08:30 PM
      Here's the summary:

      Total:
      Dream: 985
      LD: 93
      SP: 30

      This (last) week:
      Dream: 17
      LD: 0
      SP: 1

      (That sleep paralysis wasn't scary or anything, I just couldn't move and that was it)

      I finally got lucid dream again, and not just one but two and for the same night, too. I tried to do the bonus ToTM (flipping the world upside down) twice, but I didn't succeed. I'm dumb because I was supposed to do the others first, as they're easier and actually possible for me, but okay then... It was fun tho. Here are the dreams:

      #1The dream begann non-lucid. I was in some underground cave. It was full of water but I could see and breathe just well. It looked like Minecraft... I was swimming (diving?) around and tried to find exit at some point. I started controlling my actions more and more until I just thought that yeah, this is a lucid dream now. I tried to do the world flipping thing but I got something horribly wrong because I flipped MYSELF, not the world. But the world seems to be upside down on my perspective, so it counts, right? No (or does it??). Okay, I guess it could have worked in some way actually, but it didn't. I tried to keep that pose for a while. It was interesting. Then I woke up.

      #2 I got another dream right away (DEILD? Was it?). I was in the same world (I just knew) but not in the water this time. I tried to do it on ground. I didn't have that much control that time, but it was still a LD.

    6. Log 784 - June 2017 TOTM Basic Task II

      by , 06-24-2017 at 03:58 AM (Dream Logs DWN-12)
      Created Thursday 22 June 2017

      Honestly, I should be posting here more often... Anyway, I've got a DILD to note, of which, as noted above, I bagged a basic TOTM. There's also a few fragments.

      Dream 1 - June TOTM 2017 Basic Task II


      Scene 1 - Falsely Delirious Tyrant Awareness
      The visuals were pretty clear. I was watching Dragon Ball Z on a big screen. Overheard my sister, Andrea, and nephew, Euclid talking in the background as well.

      This starts in a dirt road cutting through a plains. Kid Trunks is walking down the road, when Master Roshi (noticeably lacking his shades) dives in from nowhere and attacks. Fast paced sparring ensued. Goten soon arrives with a most unusual package on his back: the tyrant Frieza! His alarmed peers questioned if he'd any clue whom that was. Turned out an accident caused Frieza to lose his memories and most of his sanity. Between maddened rambling, the villain mentioned of going to a certain place. And so, Goten elected to take him there.

      Cut to them walking around a suburban area. Once there, Frieza revealed he'd faked his insanity, though he assured no hostility. Still, he urged the others to bring him where requested.

      I manifest at that point, and take a good look around. On seeing a familiar nearby, I realized this was my neighborhood, and so quickly gained lucidity. There were some differences, though. Namely, a forest replacing both the shopping centers and homes immediately across the street. I fly up to get a better look, and find an empty plains in the horizon. Very curious. I start making my way there, only then, things begin deteriorating into a blue void. No prob. All I needed to do was remain calm, rub my hands, and wait til a scene formed. Immediate transition.

      Scene 2 - Rock Nut
      The visuals started hazy, but became progressively clearer. I was in a beach, standing elevated above the shore during a sunny day.

      People were abound, but it seemed that despite the clear water and weather, no one was swimming. When I went down for a closer look, I soon discovered why. After only getting ankle deep, a 12ft+ tall rogue wave immediately formed ahead of me, sending me tumbling off the ground a good 10 meters back. Stranger yet, the water overlapped over me without leaving even a drop on me.

      Woozily, I made my way back uphill and to an unkempt forest. Soon, I found myself in the middle of a party within a rickety picnic area. Just remembered some TOTMs. Perhaps Basic II would be a good start. I looked around in the sand, finding some shells, conches, and pieces of glass. Not solid enough, probably.

      After some digging, I finally found a rock, definintely a winner. My brother, Crispin then appeared behind me. He was in a chatty mood, a typical distraction. I told him I'd be with him shortly and commenced the task, ignoring his confused gaze as I bit the stone. Noticed my teeth felt especially brittle and plastic. Still, I chomped on. The rock eventually gave way, where I found some kind of nut inside. A raw almond, specifically, as I soon realized by eating it. Besides a bitter aftertaste, this tasted and felt as the real thing.

      After that, I thought of some other tasks. I remembered TOTM task II, though without visible stars, that didn't seem likely. Advanced Task I, mayhaps? I headed back down to the water in hopes of seeing my own reflection. But then, the scenery faded, and I awakened.

      Scrap Group 1
      Alone in an empty room within an unknown home. I'm imagining having shadow powers for a later dream. When I entered the bathroom, I realized such abilities were already in my grasp. And so, I commanded the inky darkness to sweep through the walls and sinks of the house to melt any verminous insects dwelling there.

      In the bedroom of an unknown home. I overheard Euclid and Andrea talking about Ed Edd and Eddy. There was an unusually funny (within the dream) joke where Ed utters the line "I have the soul of an echidna." Later, I sit down to watch TV along with Crispin, my nephew, and my sister. There was an ad for a made-up D&D 3D cartoon. Just from that brief glimpse, I already knew the show was going to be lackluster, its generic action/comedy backdrop as uninspired as its characters.

      Driving on the highway and to a city at night. Mom, dad, Crispin, Andrea, and Euclid were there as well. On our way there, Euclid noticed a poster designed as Bash terminal. Some forgotten meta-humor was printed on it, which I had to explain to my nephew. We stop and walk around for a bit. On returning, we find Andrea was still somehow still inside the vehicle. An accident had occurred beforehand, and she was ticketed heavily for such. What's more, she'd sustained a serious injury on her left foot, then mangled beyond recognition. So we rushed her to a local hospital. While checking her in, I noticed I hadn't any shoes, of which I was oddly more concerned than the previous horror.

      Vague memories of being in a museum, where expensive copies of a masterpiece were being sold. Then something of walking down a dirt road, and later, playing a keyboard.

    7. 6/23/17 - Hobos and Star Spray

      by , 06-23-2017 at 10:31 PM
      Iím at this very low-scale housing complex. Itís apparently part of some city project to provide low-cost houses to homeless people so they can stay off the streets. However, most of the houses are in serious disrepair - many have giant holes in the ceilings, one or two are missing doors and windows, and one is missing an entire wall. The people there arenít exactly the best-looking either - I spot one woman smoking a crack pipe, and another guy is pacing back and forth uttering ďno door, no doorĒ repeatedly like a madman. I finish whatever errand I was sent there to do and hop back in my car, which some guy I apparently know is driving.

      We head off down the road and continue for a few minutes. After a while, I look over to say something to the driver, but heís disappeared! I grab the steering wheel from the passenger side and try to keep the car on the road, since it seems to keep accelerating for some reason. I quickly realize this isnít working, so I try to climb over to the driverís side and regain control. It takes some maneuvering, but I manage to plop down in the seat and look up - just in time to watch as I pop over the curb and into someoneís yard. I slam on the brakes and turn the steering wheel to the left, hoping to veer away from crashing into the house, but my momentum is too great and I slam through the wall of the house.

      I quickly realize Iím fine, but turn to look at the huge hole Iíve created in the brick wall. I start freaking out, worrying about paying for the wall, paying for the car repairs, and probably getting my license suspended. This canít be happening, I think to myself. I instinctively plug my nose to RC,
      and much to my relief, I realize Iím dreaming. I get out of the car and stabilize a bit while I walk. I notice the previous driver now standing at the curb - he waves at me and decides to accompany me while I walk, but I donít say anything, since Iím focused on the TOTM that Iíve had in mind all month.

      I imagine shooting stars falling from the sky, and soon enough I see one falling and landing somewhere. I try willing one to land closer, and eventually one lands on the other side of the street. I walk over to the landing site and pick it up. Itís shaped like a star bit from Super Mario Galaxy, and itís made of semi-transparent plastic, so I can see something else is inside. I pry it open and inspect its contents - a small perfume spritzer with a white feathery top. I spray it on my arm to smell it - the scent is fruity and incredibly pleasant. In fact, it smells so good that I decide that I have to taste it too, and I quickly spray several times into my mouth, finding that it tastes quite fruity as well. The guy following me asks me if he can look it, so I hand it to him, and he continues to spray it all over my body. The smell starts to be a bit overpowering, but itís still quite nice. He stops, and I look down to see that my skin is glowing, and all over my body is a distinct tingling sensation. I feel my body start to lift into the sky, but I soon wake up.

    8. June Bonus Task attempt (Fail, but fun)

      by , 06-22-2017 at 03:39 PM
      Wake back to bed. Read a little about lucid dreaming before getting sleepy. MILD technique.

      So, I found myself walking towards my backyard when I became lucid for no particular reason. It felt like a Deja-vu, even though it was the first lucid I had that night, it didn't feel like it. Anyway, I felt ecstatic. I realized that I had never laid on my hammock while on a lucid dream, so I did! As I lay there, it struck me: the tasks of the month!

      Getting up from the hammock, I tried to turn the dream upside down, right there in my backyard. But I just woke up... or did I? Actually, I was now reappearing in some sort of outdoors courtyard with some tables and chairs in it... but I was upside down! Or was I? It felt like it for a moment, but obviously I'm not falling down towards the sky or anything. So, I thought, "what's the difference between being upside down or being upright when the laws of gravity seem to be working correctly?" Either way, this time I did wake up.

      I maneged to 'chain it up' inducing a DEILD in the form of an OBE-like exiting of my still-sleepy body. I got out of my house through the front door, and I quickly realized that there was some sort of pool party in my front door neighbors. They were actually two pool parties going on! One with a fake blow-up pool, and the other one with a real pool (that obviously isn't there in real life. I could hear sick music coming out of these parties! There were dream characters all over.

      I decided to climb some sort of wall/fence that was dividing both pool parties to jump to the big pool. Climbing up, I felt the hot summer lucid dreaming Sun in my back. It felt so warm and vivid and awesome! Anyway, instead of jumping into the pool, I decided to give the task another try. Feeling that the easiest way to turn the dream upside down was to fling with my feet the wall/fence I was standing on (as if I was doing a backflip with a skateboard), that's what I decided to do.

      Long story short, it didn't work. The dream quickly turned into a hallucination-blob and I woke up. Needless to say, I had fun trying.
    9. Advanced TotM (one fail and one success, I think)

      by , 06-21-2017 at 04:54 AM
      So, after reading a little bit about lucid dreaming and going 'back to bed', I soon found myself in a familiar state. I was lying in my bed listening to a Podcast... but realized that whatever Podcast I was listening to, obviously wasn't real. I was lucid.

      I induced what I call the vibrational state and slowly separated from my body OBE-style. My sense of touch came before the visuals. I found myself in a replica of the house I was sleeping in, and quickly I set out to do the tasks. It wasn't a particularly vivid lucid. But, for some reason, the laws of physics were on point (in a lucid that I was supposed to change myself in the mirror).

      Looking at myself in the living room mirror, I tried hard to put some abs and more muscle in my body or something like that. But nothing. After trying hard, the only thing I managed to do was: make myself more tanned. (and even that, took me some mental acrobatics).

      I thought that, maybe, if I went to another, less familiar house, it might be easier to change my appearance I flew to some house in my neighborhood (that, for some reason, was near the beach now). I tried to do the same thing in the mirror of this imaginary house. But, as I was taking off my shirt, just at the moment when the t-shirt covered my vision, I lost visuals and woke up...


      PS: After flying to the second house and attempting once more the advanced task #1, I looked up at the sky to see if I could attempt advanced task #2, but it was cloudy and no stars where to be seen... I thought about clearing up the sky and attempting the task... but, I thought: "yeah, if I couldn't give myself abs, I'm not clearing up this sky and making stars fall unto Earth anytime soon." Lol, so I didn't even attempt to do it.

      All in all, I had fun.

    10. Basic ToTM #1 and flying

      by , 06-16-2017 at 02:18 PM
      At first I was outside near my house and there were random people there. For some reason, they were a threat to me. I can't really remember this part. However, I realized it was a dream (there was no particular reason how I knew) and flew away. I wanted to fly to my crushes house, but one of the people at my house wouldn't let me and made me return home somehow. It was a boy, and one of the "cool kids" (or teenagers). I flew faster and then he couldn't do it because I was so far away already. While on the way to my crushes house I stopped because I realized I could do one ToTM, the recalling one. I succeeded. It was cool. I didn't know I could do that. I also looked at my environment and sky just for fun. The houses there looked cartoonish. The sky was boring. It wasn't even blue. I continued and realized I could fly faster if I was heading down rather than up. There were trees. Finally (this sounded like the trip was long but it wasn't) I got to the house. I made myself small and used some hole instead of a door (????logic) to go inside. I saw though the walls and felt uneasy. Rooms were small. My crush, his sister and his brother were there. I talked to his sister. Then the dream ended.
    11. Deild

      by , 06-05-2017 at 12:04 AM
      The past few weeks,I've been awaking a lot during the night,after dreams. So I've been making small attempts at Deild. I hadn't made any major attempts,because I typically can't recall my non lucid dreams too well after many interruptions during my sleep cycle,aswell as I have trouble going lucid when someone else is in the room. However,I actually managed it somewhat. Was a Deild into Dild? I awoke,kept my eyes closed,set the intention and hung onto my consciousness but fell asleep,luckily I still began aware within my dream. I was in a room that wasn't mines. Pretty small. A bed with brown,reddish covers. A wooden dresser with old school vantage mirror top. I think that's what it's called,and a door. Seemed like it would belong to an older woman. I decided ide do the Totm. Which ones I could remember. First I attempted to recall successfully my waking life information. Name,age,parents,waking body location,etc. after this,I stopped myself and rubbed my hands together to increase stability before moving onto biting something. First,I bit into the bed coverings taking a chunk out of it. Lol Tasted like fabrics,I tried once again,but a piece of thread got stuck between my teeth. I couldn't recall any other tasks,so I went to leave,but took a chunk out of the door. It had no taste,but I was able to create a pleasurable taste of a burger,but remembered I'm a vegetarian. Lol and changed it to specialty fries from a local restaurant.

    12. Lucids (completed both basic TofM's)

      by , 06-03-2017 at 04:59 AM
      Date of dream: June 2, 2017

      I found myself lucid (not sure how) in some random dream I was having around 4:00 AM. I was outdoors, just outside the house I was sleeping in. Quickly, I remembered about the tasks of the month I'd just read before going 'back to bed'. I thought about biting the first solid thing I happened to see (basic taks #2), which happened to be the branch of a tree. Unfortunately, I wasn't stable enough and failed this first attempt. As I went to bite the tree, it dissolved into nothingness, I lost visuals, and I woke up...

      Somehow, I didn't wake up completely and found myself getting lucid in just the beginning of a new dream. This time I was indoors, in the exact room where my sleeping body was. I was chatting with my little cousin's DC when I regained lucidity. Again, I decided to bite the first solid thing I saw, which this time happened to be a metallic doorknob. Ouch! Just the thought of it made me uneasy... I already knew that pain was possible in lucid dreams. Either way, without thinking it too much I lowered my head and took a bite to that round probably-bronze doorknob. At first it felt very weird and a little painful, but I then got myself in one of those "mind over matter" mindsets and took a bite right off of that metal doorknob... I then proceeded to swallow the chewed-up doorknob piece, it gave a realistic metal aftertaste.

      Before I proceded to get out (OBE style) of the house... for some reason I decided to try the task I just did one more time. Lol. It was just such a weird new experience... This time it was a new door (the door to get out of the house)... the doorknob was very different... not a round one... this one was more like a "handle"... I took a bite clean off! And to my surprise, this one didn't taste like metal at all... it actually tasted like lemon... or more like lemon starbursts.

      Walking up the street, I suddenly found myself in a place that doesn't exist in real life (as opposed to the familiar neighborhood replica of the "OBE" style dream I was just in). The place looked really clean. There were buildings all around.
      I was in an almost oblivious state, when it struck me "the TofM!!" I quickly decided to try basic task #1 after stabilizing for a moment. More stable, I started to recall everything that the task requested: name, where my body was, where I go to university, etc... And to say the least, it felt very weird -as I expected it would. Here I was, recalling stuff about "myself", when I was not even exactly in my body... I got one of those "the universe is truly stranger than we can suppose" feelings. Just wow... to contemplate your life from that unfamiliar state...

      Anyway, I decided to get into one of those self-created buildings that were all around me. Feeling contemplative after this task, I kept recalling stuff about myself... I started to see how much I've changed over the years, from elementary school until now... "I used to be an ignorant little kid," I thought. "And now? I'm a f*cking mystical journeyer of the dreamscape, man!," I concluded, feeling elated.

      I continued doing random stuff for a while. It was a nice little lucid.
    13. first lucid since back -2 May TOTMīs

      by , 05-26-2017 at 10:50 AM
      i finally managed to get lucid in a low effort way since i am back from india. the last days i even had problems remembering dreams at all...
      even tho the lucid was nothing too special it felt like coming back. "wow i can do everything again, what to pick...?!"

      after several awakings this morning where i was struggling with recall i finally had a short clear dreamlet after waking with which i could work. i evaluated the dream and what was odd and where i should have become lucid and felt asleep again:

      i find myself in a car ride. the driver uses a headset that is connected to something similar like a walkman but more futuristic and fancy. i assume he is learning a new language and listening to lectures. but he doesnt repeat or say anything. we park in a garage and i ask him what language he is learning. he tells me the name and i dont know the language at all. i talk to someone else? who tells me it is exactly the same language like English? or something. i move away and find myself in a building.
      i pass a Pinboard and notice our workplan. i pin it off the wall and wonder why it is here because i am in a unknown place in a different city or something? i approach a guy and talk shortly about the piece of paper i hold in my hands. he says something odd and goes away. this triggers my lucidity and i do a nosepinch. i turn around and have the TOTMS immediately in my head.
      first i want to find my smartphone. i move around a corner and expect the phone to be there. just 2 feet away from the first place i look i notice my phone on the floor. i pick it up and do the standard waking move: turn on the display to see the time. the display turns on and it looks like my typical background but where normally the clock would be there is just empty space. it doesnt bother me. now i need someone to call me. i shortly hold it in my hands and see if someone calls but i dont try hard enough because three girls approach me. for some reason i just ask one of the girls if they could call me. she nods. but then the thought strikes me... "you need my number right?" i take her phone and dial my number. at the end there is no button call but continue. i hit that button and give her phone back. at that point i already think that this might not be the right approach to get the task done but i go with the flow now.
      i feel like it would be stupid to stand next to her so i walk away around a corner into a room. on the way i notice some other rooms. they look like offices but for some reason there is a lot of women cloths like bras and underwear and stuff. so i move into a normal looking room and then hold the phone to my ear. i hear no ringing. for some reason i feel like jumping of the balcony head first straight down to the ground. i enjoy the feeling of acceleration. i still hold the phone to my ear and suddenly hear a voice. we talk shortly some nonsense like: "hey whats up" and "i come back to you". i start flying and fly up back to the balcony. i enter the building again and now one girl is standing around. i cant tell if she is one of the three from before. we walk back and i ask or tell her that i found it weird that there is so much cloths stuff in those offices? we approach one and there is a hot babydoll. i ask her if she could wear it and she agrees in general. i think that it might need to long to change her cloth that i would loose precious dreamtime but on the other hand there probably would be a shortcut for this. for some reason we agree on not changing cloths and i remind the other task i want to get done.
      i tell her i look for my glasses and start looking around on the ground. i also put one hand in her pocket to see if it is maybe there. i see something similar like my glasses on the ground but its just a pattern of the floor what i find interesting because it looks like a optical illusion. i continue looking around and shortly after i find my waking life glasses on the ground. i notice that i already wear a pair of glasses (i can see a light frame around my visual field) i put on the glasses and i have slightly the feeling of seeing a litte sharper than before but the effect is maginal. [sadly i expected this effect already because i wear glasses in waking life so for me glasses make me see better. i might test this with a different pair of glasses like sunglasses or a "special" pair of glasses] . i see a guy standing on a closet. he says something. i approach him and intend to push him thru the wall behind him. i push him and he phases thru the wall the feet still on our side. i explain to the girl that it was nothing bad and that it didnt hurt him. that is cool i can not only phase myself thru stuff but also others, good to know.
      now there are no goals left. so what to do? i find myself on a street. i think about to visit a desert and some pyramids. i had some medium success with flying and phasing thru several buildings and with this "teleport" or change the dreamscenery completely. i think about if i really need to want to visit a special place or if i just can make one up and fly there. i look around and see a plane. i remember some old TOTMS and decide to fly in direction of the plane. i pass thru some trees with not too much space in between them and i worry what might be behind them. and fair enough behind the trees there is only dense fog and nothing to see. i decide to fly straight to the ground and fly through the earth and come out on the opposite side. i cant see anything so i concentrate on the sound of acceleration and the feeling. everything gets darker and at some point i feel like i should be through and flying "up" again and suddenly i see some buildings around me. i walk shortly and decide to fly on a balcony. while i start flying and feel slightly problems with flying i feel like waking up but i dont fight it
      and just awake happy with my latest lucid dream that hooked me again to invest a little more effort in getting lucid and doing cool goals.

      Task of the Month

      I'm with some people in the basement of a big house and we have some work to do here. While we are working there's a big screen on the right and a movie of a snorkel trip is being played. I wonder why my grandfather and Franz happened to have this trip together as I see Franz floating with two black suitcases in his hand. My grandpa still sits on the boat and wears big, colored sunglasses and then jumps into the water. When I stand up I think that all this is kind of strange and make my RC by pluging my nose. Since I can breathe normally, I know that I'm dreaming, but to make sure I keep the nose pluged for a while.
      Then I want to attack the target with my mobile phone and I think that I have put it outside on the cellar stairs. I rub my hands together to stabilize the dream. When I leave the room I see that the staircase is empty and I turn to a long chest of drawers behind me. Again, I try to convince myself that I have put my mobile phone here and this time I see an old little cell phone lying on the chest of drawers. It is not my current mobile phone but one that I had many years ago, it even has keys, but for the task I'll have for it it will suffice. I pick up and look at the mobile phone while concentrating and clarifying to myself once again that it is all a dream. Then I loudly command the mobile phone to ring and a second later the mobile phone actually rings. On the small screen a confused composition of letters and numbers is displayed, which makes no sense, but still I answer the call quickly to not waste my chance. I answer with a simple "yes" and a voice on the other side of the line welcomes me and asks how I am. First of all I want to find out who the man is and I ask "who is there". The voice says something as an answer which I can not understand and I say that I have bad reception and I did not understand. The next words I can clearly understand and the boy tells me his surname and adds that we where supposed to do a science project together back in the days. Now I remember and greet the boy with his first name, which has come back to me by now and then I ask him how he is. During the telephone call, I walk around the house and look around, most of the doors are locked and especially those that lead outside are blocked by heavy objects. I'm standing in front of the kitchen and my counterpart no longer responds. Surprised, I put the phone aside and see Lisa cleaning something in front of me in the kitchen. I go to her and ask her where the trash is, but then simply open the right flap under the sink and throw the cell phone into the garbage. The trash almost goes over and I have to push down forcefully.
      I tell her that the trash is quite full and then look at her more closely, she is still a little girl and has hardly aged a day since I last saw her. Since I have fulfilled my goal now I am satisfied and look around the house. Again, I stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands together. I am once again fascinated how real everything looks and then go to a small baby that lies on a couch. I touch it on the arm and am fascinated by the sensation. As the baby almost loses his blanket, I pull it up again and wake it up inadvertently. While the baby cries, I go over to the other side to cover it, but it only cries for his mother. That is strange as the baby is way to young to talk. I see that the blanket is attached to the child with strange black belts. As I look to the left, I see Lisa standing there and she just looks at me, then I lose the dream and wake up.

    15. Spring comp. TOTM Bonus (May)

      by , 05-01-2017 at 12:16 PM
      Dreams from 30/4/2017

      5.40- 7.10am

      Weird office. A woman is trying to set permissions on a set of files. I slide in a folder from the side of the touchscreen. She tells me to press the red button. My arm is now stuck down to the side of me and refuses to move. I try clicking a button, pretending to be holding the mouse, but it doesn't seem to work. It is toggling something else on the screen - a record button.

      The woman leans in, blocking the screen. I try putting on a pair of headphones and start hearing what sounds like a horror movie soundtrack.

      Later on I carry some purple curtains through the office and put them down. Things seem off. It's a dream. I touch the walls to stabilise/RC. The walls are rough, painted brick.

      Remembering the new TOTM bonus, I declare out loud that this room is in a tower of my mind. There will be an elevator behind me. Turning around there is now a door, but it leads to a bathroom. Another attempt and an elevator door appears. It is shut and there is no button to open it. I force my fingers into the tiny gap and prise it apart.

      Several other DCs join me in the shiny, mirrored, stainless steel interior of the lift. There are only two buttons, up or down. One goes to press the up button. "No. We're going to the lowest level." I command him. He steps back. The doors do not close but the elevator starts to move down.

      We pass through several different levels, including a scenic landscape and then others that are dark. Lower still. The lift stops at a scene of a construction site. Everyone steps out of the elevator and starts looking around. There are a few motorbikes riding around the half finished buildings and frames of others waiting to be built.

      I start flying over/ through the frame of what will be a large building. Further away a biker stops and a white van pulls up, blocking him in. A bunch of guys jump out and try to lift the bike into the van. I land and run over to them. They yell at me not to interfere, drawing guns.

      Fucking bike thieves... uncontrollable rage fills me. They try to shoot me. Easy to ignore. There is no pain, just anger. I grab the closest thief and throw him to the ground. Then I grab the motorbike, lift it with inhuman strength and throw it at another guy standing by the van. It crashes into him, pinning him to the ground.

      The other thieves try to grab me and hold me down. My pulse is racing and I am losing control. Realising this, I make an attempt to fly away and calm down, but wake up instead.


      7.30- 8.30am
      Don't recall the non-lucid part. Felt like a really long dream.

      Already lucid... I call down a bird that is flying in the sky. It looked small but when it lands on my head it is about the size of a cat! I transfer the bird to my hand. It is a large brown, fluffy, baby blackbird. It chirps at me and I move the bird to sit on my shoulder. (There is a baby blackbird with an injured wing in our back garden in RL. It will not fly. The neighbours' cat will probably kill it soon. Not much we can do.)

      Then there is a section inside a building... I climb up large steps and phase out of a window.

      Outside on the porch, a small helicopter is waiting. No pilot inside, so I climb in and take off. A woman climbs into the passenger side. It is rather cramped in here. We fly over a landscape filled with criss-crossing bridges with trains on them. There are other helicopters, some of them get very close to us. We narrowly avoid crashing with high speed trains. Finally I land in a street.

      A car nearly crashes into us. I shove it away into a building using super strength like the last dream. The family from inside the car get out and start following me around. Kind annoying. I couldn't really think what to do, so started looking around for ideas. The woman following me is dark skinned and beautiful.

      I start paying her some attention and kiss her, right in front of the guy who is presumably her husband. He doesn't seem to care. I ask her to perform a sexual act on me. At first there is a bit of communication error, but after some coaxing she gets the idea. However, it's not great. It is not long before I've lost interest.

      After this I start thinking about what to do next and remember the bonus TOTM, that I completed in the previous lucid, but decide to have another try. The woman follows me into a building and we get into an elevator. We go down in the elevator for a long time. "Is this it?" I ask, seeing only darkness outside.
      "This is only floor 16." Says a guy who just appeared in the elevator with us.

      I want to keep the dream going, realising that this has been a long dream and the beginning is already forgotten. Finally we step out into a street filled with houses with sold signs outside. People are standing in a crowd in the street. The unknown male DC talks about them being nazis and jews, trying to "sort the whole thing out." I think how unlikely that is.

      I start flying over the street and land in a market. They are selling a weird variety of stuff. One stall owner tells me they are all moving out, and need to get rid of things.
