      Robbing a Bank (Non-Lucid)

      With out really considering how I got into the situation in the first place, I am at a bank with my friend Kyle with the intention of robbing it. We are wearing suits and carry bags that contain guns and will later contain the money while we get away. Kyle apparently has been planning this for a long time and we are waiting until all the employees are in the right place. We put on masks and take a worker hostage so she can take us to the vault. No one has sounded the alarm or realized we are robbing them yet. We get in, get a block of money worth $1 miillion and stuff it in our bags. After that all we have to do is get out. Only as we are leaving does the alarm sound. We steal someones car as a get away vehicle and then several miles away steal another to get them off our tail.

      This is where I start to wonder how I got into this situation. lol I am happy atleast to have gotten out safely but now I am a criminal! We go to our hide out which is in a basement under an abandon bar. Now we start planning how we will escape capture since it appears they know who we are on the news. I call my girlfriend and tell her whats going on and that we need to come up with a plan. lol

      I woke up here and should have written down the dream because I would had remembered a lot more details. After going back to sleep I sort of picked up where the dream left off but can't remmeber what happened.

    2. Speelbee2 Competition Night 8-14

      by , 04-28-2017 at 10:44 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I have succeeded at getting a consistent sleep schedule but my recall has gotten horrible. :/ I have had a lot of fragments though which is good but nothing to write home about. I did only one proper WBTB in the past week but I should be able to get more in before the competition is over.

      I am playing a cool isometric video game. It is like an RPG but you can't leave this really big dungeon but there is lots of treasure to find there.
    3. Spring Competition Night 1

      by , 04-15-2017 at 09:12 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      This morning is the start of Spellbee2's lucid dreaming competition and I wanted to start off with a bang so I did a WBTB late in the morning before taking 8mg of Galantamine and trying SSILD since that almost guarantees I will get some sort of lucid. Now that I got some points built up I feel comfortable focusing on personal goals or TOTMs rather than sheer number of points. Tomorrow I will probably have to forgo WBTB all together to ensure my sleep cycle remains on track after taking so much galantamine.

      Magic Ninja Assasin Jutsu (Non-Lucid)

      I am in my home town as a ninja assasin targeting some other ninja. He is only a teenager and does not stop running to confront me. While running I contemplate the strange riddles from my previous dream and wonder if they have something to do with how dream magic works despite not being lucid. I remember the riddles more clearly now. The first line, the fibonacci sequence, has to do with the golden ratio and the sacred geometry of the symbols used to activate magic spells. The rest of the riddles have to do with the different types of spells which could be described by their primary elements Water, fire, earth, and air. There is more arcane knowledge hidden in these riddles that I don't fully understand and I don't remember the riddles themselves. I remember that, in the dream, I felt like I did more water ninja magic and that fire magic is used mostly by warlocks. I don't remember if I the other ninja and I actually used any magic jutsus or anything but we did run really fast. haha

      I get to a highschool where the teenage ninja disapears into the crowd. They are having some sort of end of the school year carnival which is conventient for him isn't it. I walk around now more cautious not to draw attention. Eventually I see him hoping a fence thinking I am distracted and the chase continues until I wake up.

      Let's Get Some Points! (SSILD)

      I feel REM kicking in quick from the galantamine and SSILD so I roll over. After a minute or so I try to get up but my muscles are locked tight. I wait a little longer and try rolling out of my body but even that doesn't work. Next, I try imagining walking to the bathroom with my eyes closed with out actually doing anything. I feel the sink faucet in my hand Which now I realize I was imagining all wrong . I open my eyes and I am fully in the dream. I nose plug and start brushing my teeth. I feel how the brush feels against my gums and lip and contemplate my goals. Once satisfied that I am fully stable i unplug my phone from my charger and run right through my front door, phasing strait through it. Thats one of three tasks down. I am in the hallway of my appartment complex. I hold up my hand and create a spark between my fingers that grows into a small fire ball. Its honestly a pathertic fire ball but it counts for my second three step task. I waste no time and fly straight up out of my appartment, phaseing through a full story of rooms. I land close to my old college campus down the street.

      Students are walking around everywhere. I hear someone yell "MadMonkey" from a car behind me. I am struck by the fact they said my ussername rather than my real name and turn but I don't know which car they are in. I run to each parked car and don't see anyone I recognize. It was probably a team member or Juliana so I might as well just summon them. I reach back and grab a female hand. "Hi Juliana." I say. "Hello Matthew." They reply. I can tell I am taking this all a bit to fast and I start to feel the sheets of my bed and loose visuals. I remain calm and try and renter the dream.


      I am back on the same street where I left off but not lucid. I wonder why I am in public with only my boxer briefs on and my phone in my left hand. That's right, I'm dreaming. haha I open my phone to see dreamviews open with this very dream journal entry half typed except this paragraph instead contains a conversation I would have had with Juliana. I don't remember much of it now but I was asking her how dream magic works. I get a phone call and a man with a thick russian accent asks for me by name. He says he found me online and now is hacking me and I must work with him or bad things will happen. I hang up and see now on my phone a group text chat with the same number and other people who have been hacked. Not long after this I wake up.

      Galantamine Fragments (SSILD)

      I am in the hallway of my child hood home contemplating why I am so confused and why this magic stuff keeps occupying my dreams. I go back to the void and wait for another dream to form.


      I am in an Itallian resturant with my girlfriend. A kid comes up and steals some food from out plate and walks back to his parents. I remember I am dreaming and throw food at the kid and then run from table to table eating what ever food I want!


      I am in some random appartment with a random youtuber I watch. Apparently he is going through really hard financial times and we are roommates now. I use telekinesis to help him bring his luggage in. We sit down on the luggage and talk before watching a move together.

      I am in a warehouse. I can see through the high windows that it is night time and raining. The light of a single hanging lamp falls on my girlfriend and I. A bald super villain leans on a catwalk above and monologues. A mook enters and the super villain commands him to kill us. I become lucid and punch the mook in the face. The super villain points at us and yells. A lightning bolt crashes through the ceiling and nearly misses us. I fly into the super villain and crash both us through the corrugated metal of the wall into the rain. He floats now and I realize my mistake as he laughs and points at the sky. I look up and brace for the impact of another lightning bolt and wake up.
    4. The Fibonacci Code

      by , 04-15-2017 at 05:48 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I still feel really behind on sleep which hopefully means I will hit REM rebound tonight. I had two dreams that connected together after waking up for a short moment. It was clearly inspired by watching the davinci code last night. I knew it was a weird situation but I sort of reacted sarcastically and went with it.

      The Fibonacci Code (Non-Lucid)

      I have been summoned to a museum by a catholic bishop and priest who need me to decipher a code for them. "Isn't this basically just the plot to the davinci code?", I ask. "Yes, but this time it's real.
      There is this sequence of numbers at the top that we have never seen before. Thats as far as we could get." They show me a piece of paper with the first fibonacci sequence followed by about five lines of cryptic riddles.
      "Have you guys even seen the movie? This is clearly the fibonacci sequence. Can I go home now?" I honestly got really bored with this dream pretty quickly but for some reason I kept following them around this museum solving basic riddles for like an hour. I eventually woke up laughed about it with my girlfriend yet fell back into the same dream for another hour without becoming lucid.

    5. Random Witch Cats (04.06.2017)

      by , 04-10-2017 at 06:49 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I have had pretty inconsistent recall lately but a ton of spontaneous lucids and semi-lucids. I only consider lucids that I write or type toward my lucid count so I feel like I am letting myself down by not dream journaling a lot. I'm not really in a dry spell but I need to focus on dream control goals as that is how I make the most progress. I will be preping for the upcoming Spring lucid competition and next month I think I will foucos on TOTMs for a while.

      I may transition entirely to using the DV dream journal system but I am pretty determined to completely fill my paper journal. We will see how it goes.

      This dream was a spontaneous lucid I had a couple days ago but it had witches in it so I feel it is worth adding to my DV journal.

      Random Witch Cats (Semi-Lucid)

      I am at some sort of lunch party with my girlfriend. We are on a large balcony filled with lots of people mingling and drinking mimosas but I don't really remember where I am or why I am here. A couple girls start talking to us although now I have no idea what we talked about. After we finish our conversation I turn to follow my girlfirend but then I notice the two girls transform into cats and disappear into the see of legs. Based on my previous dreams these are clearly witches and I do become lucid for a moment but I don't make the connection until long after loosing lucidity and waking up. My girlfriend and I enter the building. She needs to go to the bathroom so I wait outside the door. A black cat and an orange cat walk by but I think nothing of it. After my girlfriend gets out of the bathroom we rejoin the party in another room and the two girls are there again I become lucid again for a moment but I don't have any goals in mind so what should I do? "These girls are pretty hot I guess I should just make out with them", I think, as I loose lucidity again. Yada yada yada, everyone makes out with everyone else until I wake up. lol

    6. Earth Moon

      by , 02-13-2017 at 10:06 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      It has been a couple months since I have been able to focus a lot of effort on lucid dreaming. I have had some lucid dreams but nothing worth sharing. I am graduated from college now so in theory I should have plenty of time. However, the stress of finding a job seems to be just as bad as actually being busy. lol

      I think I will make it my goal to fly to the moon. I definitely can fly fast enough to get there now. I just have to get past some mental blocks. I might try just crashing into the moon next time. Might be easier than landing.

      Moon (DILD)

      It is the first day of a college biology class. I had to order three books for this class and only two of them have arrived in the mail yet. That's probably okay though because there is rarely homework in the first week of a class.

      Later that week I realize there was an online quiz that I forgot to take. Shouldn't hurt my grade to much though. When I arrive in class I see everyone turning in short essays. Now my grade might be pretty bad and I am getting stressed.

      I am at home and I have a box in the mail. I pick open it up and its the thirds book for the biology class. Wait, I don't have a biology class. In fact, I graduated last semester.
      I am dreaming. I do a nose plug RC and the breath goes through my fingers much more smoothly than normal. That is because I am lying on my side when I normally sleep on my stomach. I look at my hand and I have 6 fingers. I smile and make my hand have a dozen or two fingers. I stabilize and remember my goal is to fly to the mood. I walk out the front door and look up to see the earth where the moon normally is. I guess I will fly there instead and see what life is like there. I jump up and fly. I block my view of the moon with my hand and the horizon leaves me. I look at the earth moon but it fades away. Dang it. I see it again in a different direction but it also fades away. I wake up.

      After going back to sleep I had a non lucid that jumped between the perspectives of a few dream characters sort of like a novel. It got interesting when one of the dream characters started remembering my memories from the other characters. He/I then got caught up in the drama of the other characters who where his acquaintances.

    7. Hylian Shield?

      Hylian Shield? (DILD)

      The begining of this dream is rather x rated so I will let you use your imagination for that part. I spontaneously become lucid. I decide to do something useful rather than continue the shenanigans. I miss Juliana so I summon her but I summon someone else who is way to short and squat. I un summon themm and try again. This time it is her and she hugs me. She points out that it has been a while. I ask her if we can go on a mission or something and she says it would be better to train. I say I wan't to try the evil witch mission from DHL but she thinks it's a waste of time to get ahead of ourselves and walks off. I remember that I summoned the master sword and want to show her. I chase after her and say that I have made some progress since I last saw her and summon the Master Sword from behind my back. "The master sword huh?" She says. "Maybe there is a mission we can go on. Grab my hand." I grab her hand and we are teleported infront of some building.

      The first time someone else has teleported me. Cool.

      There are bouncers in front of the door. She says to just act cool. We walk past the bouncers and they don't stop us, even with me carying a sword. I use a touch of mind control to make sure they can't notice. There is a party going on. Mostly there are 20 somethings eating food. Juliana sits down at a table and munches on some snacks and says the Hylian Shield is somewhere in this building. I look into the kitch and see cooks working. I look down another hallway and see a few more party goers security guards patrolling. I go back to Juliana and ask her where I am suppose to be looking. She says that the person who owns the sheild will probably be ariving soon and to follow them. I suddenly wake up though and don't feel like I can DEILD
    8. Water and Earth Bending

      by , 10-23-2016 at 01:28 AM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      This was actually a dream from last week but I haven't had time to copy my journal over until now.

      Water and Earth Bending (DILD)

      There are spiders everywhere in my room so I have my cat come in to get rid of them for me. Right as she rears back to pounce I notice that the spider is a black widow. I don't want to risk her getting bitten so I stop her. When I look back the black widow has changed into some sort of red bug. There is a second red bug ontop of its back like they are mating or something. I think all of this is strange so I do a nose plug RC and become lucid. My mom walks in and tells me I owe her money. I pull out my wallet and see it is filled with cash! I give her the $10 I supposedly owe her and wonder what all I can do with dream money.

      I am suddenly on a beach in Mexico. I go to an outdoor bar and order a double sized margarita and pay for it with the dream money. It doesn't have salt on it so I wave my hand and salt appears on the rim of the glass. I am back at the beach and my mom is taning by the water. The tide goes out very far and a large wave forms. It is going to hit us for sure so I use tekinesis to hold it back. I stop it before it hits us but the energy of it slides my feet back in the sand. I realize I have never tried water bending like in Avatar so I experiment with pushing the tide back and forth and making big waves obey my control. I then try earth bending. I stomp and rais my hand and 3 rock pillars shoot up through the sand.



      I loose lucidity and can't remember this part as well. I am in some sort of fort and it is flooding. A woman tells me I am making it flood somehow. Scientists study me to understand how I am affecting the water.

      Master Sword (DILD)

      There was an earlier section to the dream but it was a bit personal and I don't think I should share it. I realized it was a dream but by this point lost a bit of lucidity. I am in a casino in Vegas. My mind is wandering, not really paying attention to my friends playing roulette. I see my girlfriend walking over and I get happy she is back and then become lucid again. I remember that I wanted to try summoning my the master sword from Zelda again so I reach back and feel a sword in my hand. I pull it forwad and it is the master sword! I swing it around and wonder if I can do the engery blast attack. I swing and yell hiya and the sword glows blue and releases a blast at the peak of the swing. I try and see if I can get more accurate aim a few times. I run over to my girlfriend and her friends and try to show them that it's magic but can't seem to do it properly while they are watching. I let go of the sword and swing it around with telekinesis and they finally acknowledge the magic.



      The dream changed at this point and I loose lucidity. I am in a Lego video game of some sort. It is like a spy adventure game and I can make tools to help me. The game has every lego piece ever and you can make what ever you want which I find very impressive.

      Hanging Out With Juliana 2 (DILD)

      My bedroom is the bathroom of a fair grounds??? I am try to sleep but I see people waling around outside. I get out of bed and look in the mirror. I notice that I have nipple piercings. WTF? I put on a shirt and do a nose plug rc and become lucid. I summon Juliana. She has long red hair again and I tell her I like this look best on her. She is wearing a red button up shirt with short sleeves, a black tie, skirt, and coat with a short cape attached to the shoulders. We go outside and I forget that I was going to ask for my next magic lesson. I mention the fact that I have never seen her cat form and ask her to transform. She says there are to many people around and she has something to show me first. We run for about 30 seconds to the other side of the fair where there are food places. She says to get this one thing on the menu. I see that it is $30 and don't want to spend that money. I had lost a lot of lucidity I guess. Dream money doesn't matter! I ask her to use a spell to make the workers not charge me so much. She pulls out a wand and waves it around and says it worked. I go over and order it. I momentarily loose stability while they make my food. It is a hot dog with pulled pork and nacho cheese and other things on it. It also comes with fries and a large cupcake. It is friken amazing! I start to wake up again and can't find Juliana so I stick my hand back. She takes hold of it right away and points to some other food I should try. I remember what my actual goal was as I wake up.

    11. Hanging Out With Juliana

      by , 09-08-2016 at 09:48 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      Since my last journal entry I have had very bad recall and been very busy with the start of school on top of that so I took a little break to figure out my new schedule. This morning I woke up and realized it was a good time to get started again and did MILD.

      Hanging Out With Juliana (MILD)

      I am Supermans side kick or something. We are fighting Lex Luthor I think. There is an old lady crossing the street and Superman says to help her while he fights. I go and fly her across the street to her hotel and help her find her room. I get a sense that this is a dream and wonder if I will become full lucid. I finish walking her down the hall just to make sure I feel I finished that dream plot and do a nose plug. I think specifically about how I shouldn't fly out to superman and continue the fighting. I fly out the window and fly around Hollywood. I land and find myself in front of a 5 story building. I remember my goal is to just have a nice talk with Juliana so I stick my hand back. I feel her grab mine but it takes some focus to make it feel vivid. I say hi twice and then she responds. I look back and this time she has a buzz cut! It looks pretty good actually. She and I start walking and talking into the building and I say, "Wait. Every time I see you we start walking somewhere urgently. We don't have to go anywhere today let's just hang out and talk." "Okay, but lets go right inside here and sit down." She says.

      We go in and it's a hospital. We go in one of the rooms and sit on the bed. There is another patient in the bed next to us but they don't mind. I find on a table two giant delicious chocolate chip cookies and we each take one. It is really good! I say to her, "Could you show me more of your magic. Like something flashy and cool like the fireworks from last time." She says, "Sure!" and snaps her fingers and there is a bright blue flash surrounding her hand. "Cool!" I say. "How about something even more creative! What else can you do?" She says, "Okay. Look at that trash can." She points at it and a spark flys from her finger and into it. Two eyes and a mouth emerge from the front of the trash can and it starts talking in jiberish! "Cool! What happens if you make it inanimate again? Let me try." I have finished my cookie and stick out my finger to give it a try. The garbage can looks scared and pretends to be normal but I can tell it is just faking. "Here." Juliana says and sends another spark that makes it go back to normal. I start to destabilize and wake up or have an FA, I don't know, but I DEILD.

      I am in the loby of a hotel and skateboard out the door. Strange, I don't know how to skateboard well. I skateboard and follow someone on a bike. We fall into a pool and people try to help us out and I destabilize again.

      I am in a residential neighborhood and very unstable still. I walk up to a car and feel it. There are flowers growing out of the engine. I am stabilized now and decide to summon Juliana again. This time she has a brown pixie cut. It is much easier to summon her this time. We go for a walk and talk. "Do you know Androx?" She starts to think. "He is a talking cat, or a witch or something." She says she thinks she knows who I'm talking about and that it isn't supprising he found me. I say he sent me to fight evil witches and she starts laughing. "What? Are you an evil witch?" "No it's not that I just don't think there is such a clear line between good witches and evil witches. It just dosn't work that way in my opinion." "So you arn't a good witch?" She shrugs. "Well I guess you are a neutral witch then and I am okay with that.", I say. We pass by some people who are playing music loud. It is like metal mixed with drum and bass. As we walk away Juliana uses magic to make it louder. At the drop we can't help but start dancing to it. We can't really tell if we should be head banging or dancing like its electronic. haha I eventually wake up and decided to write this down before I forget it.


      I keep falling asleep though and eventually have a dream that I am Purple Man's pawn like in Jessica Jones.
    12. Magic Lesson Two: Sword Fighting

      by , 08-24-2016 at 08:55 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I woke up naturally for my WBTB and ate some breakfast and took some galantamine and alpha gpc. I did some SSILD and when it felt right started WILD.

      Vividness Potion (SSILD WILD)

      I find myself standing in my room. I was doing WILD so this must be a dream! I do a nose plug and confirm it. I look at my hand and it does have five fingers even though the dream isn't very vivid. I take some time trying to get the dream more vivid but it just won't get to where I need it to have fun.

      I wake up and wait for a false awakening to form. I get out of bed and it is still not very vivid. I summon a vividness potion. It is a small cylindrical bottle with red liquid. I drink some of it and it is strawberry flavored. The dream gets a bit more vivid and I read the bottle. The first words that form are "he he ha ha". Another lable says "Suck this down. This is a dream." Or something like that. Things are more vivid but it doesnt really feel realistic at all. I summon a stability potion. It is green and triangular like before. I drink it but its a lost cause.
      I wake up and my nose itches so much I can't DEILD.

      Magic Lesson Two: Sword Fighting (DILD)

      I can't completely remember the begging. It is prohibition still or maybe the early 1940s. My father is a prominent person in the sale of alcohol. The first thing I remember is being on a train with him and my fictional family going through Italy. We are going to meet Benito Mussolini. At some point my perspective changes to that of my father. There is a broken part in the track ahead and we have to stop. We are close to the palace though so we get off the train to walk. I see a group of men on the hill next to the track taking a break and drinking. I walk over and become lucid. I realize there is not much I can do for my goals here and I would rather follow the plot. I feel like I will have a chance to be fully lucid later so I go along with it. I talk to them for a bit and ask if I can have some of their drinks. The assistant that is suppose to bring me says we will be meeting Mussolini in minutes and I say I will just have a sip. I drink half a shot follow the assistant. We get a room in the palace and Mussolini is going to meet us here. I split of from my dad somehow and become lucid again. I explain that Mussolini is going to be on the wrong side in the coming war and we should stop him. Out of muscle memory I summon Juliana. I think it's her at least. Mussolini comes in and is mad that I am here. My dad hides in the bathroom. Juliana and I beat the crap out of him. I point my fingers at him and do some sort of entanglement spell that wraps his hands in vines. Juliana sits down on the bed. He trips and falls and I try to throw a dresser on him but it hits the bed instead o him. The vines fade away and I feel I did a crappy job on the spell. I tell Juliana to knock him out and she does a spell that knocks him out. I ask what now and she shrugs. I say let's mess with him and tell her to give him diarrhea with a spell. I sort of loose track of what is going on. Juliana says,"You really need to work on your sword fighting." My dad comes back out and I try to calm him down and I loose lucidity and my memory skips for a while.

      I am walking through a street in a town and see a fancy looking McDonald's. I go in and the guy I had the drink with is there. There is a second story with a balcony for outside dinning. I go out there and become lucid. Wow, this is a perfect time to do my second magic lesson! I stick my hand back and feel a hand I look to quick and it is my girlfriend Chiara! Yay that is not a bad way to mess up. I hug her and tell her I have to summon Juliana but I am glad she is here and can meet her and watch my lesson. Chiara takes a few steps back and I stick my hand back and feel another hand. I ask Chiara if it is Juliana and she says she can't see anything yet. I say, "It should be a tall sexy lady in a witch outfit." Suddenly her eyes light up and say it is her and she is pretty. I look over and Juliana is there! She has pink hair this time and her witch hat this time. She walks over and says hi to Chiara. I walk over and compare our heights. Based on how I compared our heights with our fingers she is 6 feet tall although that is with heels. I loose some vividness so I feel her sides and then her boobs to restabilize. I look at Chiara and I raise my eyebrows as if to say wow look at the size of these things. I look at Juliana and realize what I am doing is not very polite at all! Her face does not look happy. I say, "Sorry I am just trying to make sure I remember what you look like." She takes her hat off and walks away a bit. I ask,"Hey Juliana. How are you doing. What have you been up to? She still looks a bit down and says,"I havn't been so great. I am still recovering from some side effects from a potion I took yesterday." I say,"Oh, sorry, well, I guess we should start with the less. What will the lesson be this time?"

      She thinks and then says something but I somehow can't hear or remember what it is. It doesn't seem very magical. I say,"What about fireballs!" I try to summon a fireball to show her but realize I still don't know how yet. She says,"Fine. Give it a try." I say,"I don't know how. Could you show me?" Chiara walks behind us to stay out of the way and I can't quite see what Juliana does. She throws a little spark and a couple second later it crackels into a blue sparkly firework. "Wow, cool. Could you do it again though? Chiaras head was in the way?" They both look annoyed at me and I wonder why everything I am saying is coming across so rude. Juliana cups her right hand for a moment and then throws another spark that bursts into a firework over the balcony. "Swirl the energy in your hand to build it up and then throw it.", she says. I do so and then throw. I get a tiny spark but it fizzles out. "Do I have to think about it exploding." I ask and she nodes. I think about what it is going to do a few seconds after I throw it while I am swirling the energy in my hand. I toss the spark and it bounces of the wall and back at us! I guide it with my mind the other direction and it makes a blue firework!

      I look over and Juliana'a hair has changed and now it fades from white at the top to red at the bottom. I make several more firecrackers until I have the hang of it and then try it with both a hands! I look over and now Juliana's hair is short and blue. I ask, "Juliana, your hair keeps changing. Are you okay?" She says,"No I'm not okay. I'll be happier when you treat me like a person instead of just some dream element." Her hair turns all sorts of different colors. I apologize and explain I didn't mean any disrespect. "You keep dismissing the things that I teach you as not magical enough but you aren't even ready for fireballs. I told you right now you should learn sword fighting." "Oh, sword fighting! I remember that now from the previous dream. That actually sounds awesome!" I notice there is now a box full of foam weapons next to us. "Juliana, I am sorry. You need to trust me that I trust you too." She looks a bit happier and I notice her hair is purple and shoulder length now. She pulls out a sword and says,"On guard." I pull out a sword too and we get into stances. Chiara looks through the weapons and plays with a shield. Juliana and I start sword fighting and I realize this is hard even in dreams. I have experience with martial arts but no real experience with swords other than what I saw in youtube videos. I can't seem to hit Juliana. She easily blocks everything. She manages to break through my guard and land an attack to my chest. We start over and I think about the strategies I heard online. I have to hit her sword out of the way, get leverage over her sword, or get in behind her range. I pary one of her attacks with the lower part of my sword and realize that gives me the control. I slide my sword down hers and rotate it to boop her head. She says,"Good job!" and we continue. She is making it harder now and I think I see an opening. I strike at her head but she slices at my stomach before mine hits her head. Dang I thought I had that. We continue for a while and I still can't get past her but I am learning. We take a break.

      I am talking to the worker from the earlier dream. Juliana talks to Chiara. He shows me a tiny rubiks cube and I say even though it's cool its really hard to turn smoothly. He asks why I never added him on facebook and I say, "Well, I think your a dream character so I don't really know how to add you. Would I even be able to find you when I wake up?" I realize I am about to wake up and turn to say,"Thanks for the lesson." to Juliana but wake up and find myself saying it in my own head.
    13. AndresLD Rematch

      I went to Las Vegas for a few days so my recall has been pretty bad. haha I forgot a lot of this dream but I do remember the good parts! I didn't have a chance to upload this yesterday but I am sure AndresLD will want to read it.

      AndresLD Rematch (MILD)

      I don't remember how the dream starts but I am at a school and sit down at a table where some people are talking. I notice one of them looks like AndresLD and become semi lucid. I say hi and that I am MadMonkey. I say we should fly to the city that is over those mountains so we do. We get to the city and it is on the coast. At the time I remember it being the same as in an earlier dream but I don't remember the dream now. We fly over the water and there are a bunch of boats floating around. One boat has a gun looking thing that shoots fireworks. We land and talk to some DCs. One says, "To bad it's so dark out." I say,"If only someone could do something about that." and I look at AndresLD. We use our powers combined to raise the sun in the sky and make it really bright. We keep going and make a second sun come out! I couldn't have done that on my own.

      I don't remember a section or possible the dream skips to a different section.

      I am part of a super hero team. AndresLD is on the team too and is in his Fierce Deity Link form. I think SnowStrider's Dusk form might be there too. There is also a guy who can use water and fire, an Australian guy with unknown powers, and a guy who can sense people telepathically. We are on a small island with an abandoned factory on it. We go inside and find the super villain there. We tell him to surrender but then a second bad guy comes out. He is similar to purple man in that he can make people do his will. He tells one of us to tell him the code for the super weapon and they do. We start fighting them and water/fire guy and I fight the first villain. We knock him into a vat of acid but he says that only makes him stronger because that is how he got his powers. I don't remember much else but we win.

      We are outside and I am saying good buy to some of the heroes. There is a Nick Fury -esque character there overseeing things and some guys carrying the superweapon out of the factory. It is a laser cannon turret thing. Suddenly, AndresLD runs up, nocks the guys away, and takes control of the lasser. "No!" I yell and he fires the laser at the moon which is visible in the sky even though the sun is still out. The moon blows up completely and leaves a cloud of debris in orbit. I get very mad because AndresLD always seems to destroy the moon. Another perfectly good dreamworld wasted.




      I realize I am not actually mad at him and that this is a dream. I remember that one of my goals is to fight him so this is a good opportunity. I punch him and he flies into the wall of the factory and makes a dent. He runs back at me and we both punch. Our fists connect and stop for a second. I push harder and he flies several rooms deep into the factory. I guess I am stronger than him, probably because of my anger fueling me! He runs back out and I punch him into the ground, making a AndresLD shaped hole. I whale on him but he gets some control and is better at wrestling than me. I realize I will loose if we stay on the ground so I use my better position to get some leverage and throw him back into the hole in the factory. I chase after him and grabs some pillars from the broken walls and throw them at him. He runs deeper into the factory so I fly after him. He end up going outside the other side of the factory and I fly out. I see he is hiding in the pipes. He sends a energy blast at me so I dodge it. I find a chain and whip it around his legs. He almost breaks free of the chains but I use telekinesis to wrap them tighter. I swing him over my head and slam him into the ground several times. He breaks free and gets flung into some pallets of boxes in front of the factory. I fly after him but he shrinks down and hides in the boxes. I throw the boxes around with telekinesis but it's no use. The hero who can sense people runs up and says I should have let him help and that AndresLD has escaped. That's okay it was a great fight and I wake up.

    14. Magic Lesson One: Rock Climbing

      by , 08-17-2016 at 10:55 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I woke up naturally at 6:45AM for my WBTB which was nice. Couldn't quite remember my dream. My non lucid recall has been sort of shitty for the last week. I took 8mg Glanatamine and 600 mg Alpha GPC with some fruit. After a half hour of listening to anime soundtracks and setting my intentions I did some SSILD and tried WILD. I got some imagery that wouldn't stick and eventually got out of bed but the dream never stabilized so I won't bother putting an entry for that. I kept waking up and doing nose plugs but they weren't false awakenings. Eventually a dream formed but I had lost most of my lucidty.

      Magic Lesson One: Rock Climbing (SSILD)

      I am in a final fantasy style RPG on a game boy advanced. I remember playing this game before in a different dream and wan't to speed run through it to get back to where I was before. I set up my character and complete the first area to receive my sword. I then attack some enemies with it. I get to the overworld and make my way to where I can get my first companion which is a warrior guy. I then go through the overworld to a mine where I can start leveling the mining skill. I forgot though that you have to talk to this mole man NPC first to get access. I go to the first dungeon and also get a mage girl companion. We defeat the boss of the dungeon and I wake up a bit.

      I am a semi lucid now and in my own body. I am at the edge of my college at night. I want to keep playing the game so I pull a GBA out of my pocket and wonder how to get back into it. I start running around while I look at the GBA and thinking about how to turn the mechanics into a real game. I realize I don't have a GBA and remember that this is a dream.
      This is my chance!

      I stop running and actually skid because I am going so fast! It is dark but there is a street light so I feel comfortable. I see a DC is jogging along the sidewalk. I walk out into the street and remember that I wanted to try a stability potion first. I put my hand back and summon a bottle. It is triangle shaped with a small cork and green liquid in it. I pull the cork off and drink the entire bottle. The dream destabilizes for a second and then completely restabilizes. It isn't the most vivid dream but I feel like it will last a long time. Another random DC runs by. I say out loud, "Juliana, I am ready for my lesson." I flow energy through my hands and stick them out. "I now understand the importance of body, mind, and spirit!"


      Anime -esque flash back time! Previously when I asked Juliana to give me my lesson she told me to read some books first. I started with Journey to the West and read the chapter titled "Monkey King studies magic" The Monkey King (the character in my avatar) went to study with a sage to learn to be immortal. After 7 years he had to choose which philosophical discipline to focus on but was disappointed to learn that none of them would teach him immortality. The sage took him aside and told him he could learn the secrets of body, mind and spirit which isn't a formal discipline but the forces that hold the universe together. This is how The Monkey King gained immortality and a bunch of other magical powers!

      From there I knew the other books would relate somehow to the body, mind, and spirit. The book on astral projection is related to developing the energy body. The book on zen is related to focusing the mind. The other books where the Vedas and I learned more about the Ātman, the "true self". I can do energy flow simulation to work on my body schema and I can do zazen meditation to work on my mind but I couldn't find any meditation to work on the spirit. Considering I don't believe in a literal soul stuff like transcendental meditation seems like complete bullshit. I ended up realizing that just listening to good music is a great way to meditate on spirit! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaJoDAXkSMw Now, back to the dream!


      I imagine Juliana appearing in front of me in a puff of smoke. Nothing happens. Hmm. Well, it was worth a try. Another random DC runs by and startles me. What is with these DCs? I stick both my hands back and feel someone take hold of them. "Hi Juliana." I say. "Hey Matthew." she replies. I turn around and it's her. I hug her and notice she has dark hair again and her witches hat this time. "I'm ready for my lesson." I say. She looks around and takes in the environment. "It's dark here. Let's go somewhere with more light." and she points to one of the buildings at the college. We walk over there and I ask,"Hey Juliana, I'm curious, what is your natural hair color. I've seen you with red hair and dark hair." "My natural hair color?" she says. "Oh, it's grey but I'm always changing it." I say, "Grey? Are you sure? Okay." She looks at me with wide eyes and says, "Matthew, I want to ask you where you come from." I am a little taken of guard and say, "Haha okay. I want to know a lot more about you too." "Ya, but you sort of popped up out of no where and now I'm your dream guide but we hardly really know each other."

      We get to the door of the building and she opens it. It looks nothing the same on the inside. There are students everywhere in white uniforms. There is a staircase even though it is a one story building from the outside. We walk in and I see a door at the end of the hall with light coming through the window. "You did it! Let's go through there." I say. There are so many students I get destabilized a bit in the commotion but because of the potion it is really easy to stabilize again. I look back and see that Juliana has changed into a guy with aviator sunglasses on. She looks like Dave from homestuck but I can feel it is still her somehow. I take her hand so we stay together and we go to the door. "Let's make it a basketball court." I say as I open the door and go through. It really is a basketball court on the other side and it's day time! There are DCs talking and playing and there are tall buildings around the park.

      "Okay, let's start the lesson. We walk over to a bench and she sits down except now she is an indian boy. "I did the research on body, mind, and spirit." She nods and smiles. I go on,"Body I can develop with energy flow simulation. Mind I can develop with zazen meditation." She looks happy that I figured this stuff out. "Spirit I had a hard time with though." She looks concerned. "You see, I don't believe in spirits" She is about to say something but I explain myself. "Well, I believe in spirit, but not souls. In my mind, spirit is the essence of a person. Their passions, feelings, and relationships. I don't think there is a metaphysical thing determining those things. Not in the waking world but I would imagine souls are real in the dream world." Juliana looks very confused. "Waking world? What is that?" I say, "That's where I go when I wake up. You don't know about the waking world?" She squints at me and says, "So that is why there is something different about you." I ask, "So where do you go when you go to sleep?" She says, "Another dream world." I ask,"Haven't you ever woken up before?" She replies, "Not Really. So what happens when really wake up?" "Look." I say. "We should get to my lesson. Contemplate this and we can talk more about it some other time. Also, why do you look like an indian boy?" "Oh, sorry." She says and gets enveloped in a white light as she transforms. I stand next to her to help her get the height right. I ask to see the red hair this time. She looks like herself again with the red hair.

      "Okay, your first lesson." She points at some kids playing on the side of the court. The kids around here like to get them selves in all sorts of trouble. They go in places they aren't suppose to and do dangerous things." We walk down the court. "See all these tall buildings." I nod. "They like to climb up the walls and do graffiti way high up. The adults just can't climb up there to clean it but the kids never fall." We stop at the end of the block. "Your first magic lesson is to climb to the top." I ask,"What's magical about rock climbing?" She explains,"I know it isn't extravagant but it will teach you all the principles. Go ahead and choose a building and get climbing."

      I choose a building and start pulling myself up on the brick and engravings. I get up a ways and find myself at a difficult spot. "Look at 11 o'clock." I look up and a bit to the left. I see a flourish decoration that will make a good handhold. "Thanks Juliana!" I say and keep climbing. "What is this dreamviews thing on your phone?" she says. I look down and I am higher up than I thought. "Hey, what are you doing with my phone?" I shout. "Don't fall and wake up or you will loose your cell phone!" she says. "Even if I wake up I won't loose my phone." I say and keep climbing. "So what happens to your stuff if you wake up? Doesn't it disappear too?" she says. "Ha ha that isn't how it works." I say. "When you go to another dream world you don't bring your stuff. If you are inexperienced that is. Hey, who is this Chiara girl? Is she your giiiiirfriennnnnnnd?" she giggles. "Yes, that's my girlfriend." I say. "Your waking life girlfriend? Let's go through your texts!" I am very high up now but there is an over hang. I am starting to get the point of all of this. While I was distracted by Juliana I climbed much faster and easier. If I am just confident and go with it I can do anything! I make it over the overhang and can see the top now but I start to destabilize. I think about what I learned and use it to just go with it and stay anchored to the dream. I imagine myself holding the top ledge and the dream restabilizes. I pull myself to the top. Juliana is just a little dot now. I give out a victory yell and jump off. I float gently down and as I am landing near Juliana I take away her phone. I see that she has her hat off so I take that too and plop it back on her head. She looks a bit guilty but happy. I start to wake up and while I have more to say to Juliana I feel like it is time. After all, I have a lot of dialogue to right down before I forget it!


      So my feeling was right! Juliana does know it's a dream but I am surprised she didn't know there is a real waking world. I look forward to continuing that conversation and my magic lessons.
    15. FireFlyMan and DreamCafe11

      by , 08-13-2016 at 11:22 PM (The Dream Adventures of MadMonkey)
      I read AndresLDs entry during my WBTB and was super happy he ended his dryspell and was able to fight me in a Pokemon battle!!! This gave me encouragement so I did some quick SSILD and tried WILD.

      08.13.2016
      09:00 AM
      FireFlyMan (SSILD WILD)

      It doesn't take long and I am feeling mild vibrations and getting flashes of potential dream scenes. I think what the heck, I'm probably fully dreaming now, I might as well just get out of bed. I am in my hometown for the weekend so of course that is where I am in the dream. I do so and do a nose plug and confirm I am dreaming. It doesn't feel as vivid as I would like but I don't think it will be a problem because my visuals are pretty good. I stick my hands back and realize I don't have space to summon anyone in my room so I go into the family room.

      I see a man there with dark hair and eyes. I guess FireFlyMan is already here! "Hi FireFlyMan. You said you have a beard. Let's fix that.", I say. I stick my hand out and imagine his beard growing. "I don't wan't a beard." He says but I manage to grow an inch long beard anyways. "It is suppose to be a bit longer.", I say but he says,"This length is fine." so i leave him be. "Take my hand so it is easier for me to imagine DreamCafe11's hand." I say and he grabs my left hand. I wake up and feel like it's a good opportunity for DEILD but for some reason it takes a very long time to get any visuals and I lay there half awake, half asleep for about a half hour.



      I journaled the dream and realized I had about half an hour before I had to get up. I thought I might be able to squeeze in one more WILD. I set my alarm forward an extra 10 minutes just so I could wake up more naturally.

      08.13.2016
      010:35 AM
      DreamCafe11 (WILD)

      I am laying in bed and I hear a knock on the door. My mom says it is 10:30 and I have to get up. I am semi lucid and get out of bed and walk into the family room. Some random family members are there and realize I am starting a dream. I walk back into my room thinking I want to have a false awakening. I realize this is sily and my girlfriend comes into the room. I realize I miss her even though it's only been a few days and this was probably incubated my reading AndresLD's dream about seeing his girlfriend. I hug and kiss her a lot and tell her it is a dream. I let her know I have some goals to do this time but next time I see her she can join me on my adventure.

      We go into the family room and I stick my hand back to summon DreamCafe11. I feel a smallish hand take mine and I say,"Hello DreamCafe or should I call you Song." I get no response so I look over. She is a girl with brown hair, about 5'2". She isn't in her Song form this time I guess. "Are you DreamCafe?", I ask. She shakes her head yes and smiles. I hug her and introduce her and my girlfriend. While I know I don't have much time, I feel like I don't have to worry about waking up. "Do you know where the bomb is?" I ask. She says that she doesn't. I was sort of relying on her knowing where it was. That's okay we can figure it out.

      We go out front of my house and see two DCs walking by. "Do you know about the bomb threat?", we ask. They say they don't. This is a suburb so there's not much likely hood of a terrorist attack here. We should go to the mall. I see an expensive looking silver sports car in my drive way. "I know exactly where to go! Hop in!", I say. "Is this your car?", DreamCafe11 asks. "I guess it is now." I back out fast and shift into drive. I get up to 55mph in no time and already have to make a turn. I skid into the sidewalk and nearly take out someones fence and mailbox. Haha, oops. It is a very accurate representation of my neighborhood. I am on a strait away so I floor it and we go really fast. I wake up though and really wan't to get more out of the dream. I can still feel my left hand and that is it. I will my other hand onto the wheel and push my imaginary foot into the pedal. My visuals come back and the dream is vivid again! I hope that DreamCafe11 didn't notice! haha

      I drive another two blocks to the strip mall by my house. We park next to the big fountain area at the center. As we walk up I realize we are both still in our normal forms. I tell her to transform into Song and she says she hasn't figured out how yet. I say,"It's easy, you just have to watch Sailor Moon!" I stick my hand up in the air and shout,"Tatsumonki, transform!" I spin in place with my arms out and imagine the sleeves of a cloak appearing. I have a black coat now with long coattails. I still have my dark grey shorts on and some black shoes. I feel that my hair is longer and curlier now and ask DreamCafe if it is green. She says it is so I must have transformed!



      Note, I was still 5'10" as Tatsumonki. I would have been the same height as DreamCafe if that changed so I need to update the drawing.

      We walk up to a crowd of DCs by the fountain and I say,"This is the Dream Hero League! Have any of you seen a bomb or suspicious activity?" The DCs just shrug. DreamCafe and I ask around but know one knows what we are talking about. "You there! What are you hiding under your shirt!" I use telekinesis to lift up his shirt and he is just fat. I search a mans backpack too but there's nothing but books. "What are we going to do DreamCafe?" I ask. She says, "Well, I think as long as the dream characters are safe it is better if we can't find anything." I think she is probably right but I fly around to keep searching.

      I see a man with a very large padded black bag and ask him what is in it. He looks worried and runs away. That is incriminating enough for me so I use telekinesis to bring him back to where DreamCafe is. I accidentally bump his head and he seems unconscious. Oops. I place him and the bag down and see someone making out with an attractive guy. This is awkward. They look up and it's my girlfriend! "Hey!" I get angry for a second but then remember this is a dream and then I'm totally fine with it. After all, I make out with DCs all the time. It's only fair!

      DreamCafe11 walks up and I say I found the bomb. "Use your wind powers to make a vacuum around the bag." She starts spinning the air around the bag but then stops. "I still don't fully understand how to do that." She says. I feel that I am starting to wake up and I am satisfied with the dream. Sure, we didn't defuse the bomb or even confirm there was one but we got to meet each other and had a good time
      Besides, I woke up right on time without needing the alarm!
