#480 - WILD/DILD - 4:38AM
After some time of trying to WILD (about and hour), I feel as if I am sitting more upright that I should be in the recliner. I feel as if my head is bobbing forward and to the side like I am consciously falling asleep. I worry about the headset falling off, but I try to relax and just go with it so I don't mess up the WILD. I quickly realize that I am probably not sitting this far forward and decide that I am already in the dream state. I wait a moment and begin to notice very mild vibrations in my body. I don't waste anytime here and think about getting up out of the recliner. When I do, my body effortlessly surges forward with a strange gasping/sucking sound; I wonder if that sound is just my breathing. I have the sensation of opening my physical eyes and worry about waking up, but my vision corresponds to my dream environment so I do my best to ignore the feeling. I walk to the kitchen. The room is dark and everything looks as it should. I decide I am in the dream far enough to give the left-right eye signals. I then turn and walk back across the room while doing the block-push-motion that I had practiced with the headset before bed. I am excited and curious if the computer picked up my dream actions, but I try to stay in the dream a little longer. I see Remy sleeping on the futon as he is in the waking world. The area around him seems extra dark and it's hard to tell what he looks like. Not having any other goal, I decide to wake dream Remy and see how he interacts with me. I as I move toward him my excitement of the experiment wakes me up.
A lucid dream.
It all began in this huge highschool trip to this escape. A large, wonderful and fun place with a cloudless sky and lit by a beautiful sun. From what I can gather, there was mini restaurants, water parks, and dance studios in this place. I was walking with my friends from high school, 2 to be exact, and soon I was taken away by a highschool girl named Jonet. A pretty girl who wore a lime green summer dress and was holding me by my waist; I did the Same.
We walked upstairs into this complex, walked through the social rooms with many people in it, and into this small window lit room. I laid down and she got on top of me with a belt if some sorts and began to strangle my dick.....why? I struggled to get up due to the pain but successfully did. Soon afterwards, a man came who looked like a doctor said they were trying to do a procedure that will help fight against a horrible disease/infection that causes inflammatory responses all over your body and horrible things to happen to your package.
I escaped the first time but was bought back by Jonet and they tried to do the same thing. I pushed her off and got up from the bed. While they were talking about me I looked out the window and did a reality check by plugging my nose; I became Lucid. I sat up and ran out in a rather quick manner and they were shocked by the speed. I was outside while they were chasing me and I began to jump fast and high to avoid them. I looked down while I was in th e air and soon half of the place became a map similar to a game called DUST 514. It was a Warzone
One section of the escape had a large warehouse building similar to the game. I landed and picked up a weapon called a combat rifle. I began fighting green scouts with shotguns and SMGs and soon noticed people with my weapon were helping me It proved rather difficult but was exhilarating seeing lasers and projectiles flying through the air and sounds whizzing pass your ear. It was getting more vivid the longer it was happening. However, soon it became difficult to hold the dream and I woke up.
Finally broke my dry spell! I've put off this wonderful activity for a while but recently started again. I finally have time to post entries so those who may read my dreams, expect a large influx.
I am having a dream and at one point I am sitting in a circle with some friends and family. There are a lot of people so I look up to see who all is here. Then right that instant I am on a beach at the ocean. The sun has probably set (not a lot of light left). My mom and dad are in front of me, and we are walking. I continue to look around to see who if the people are still around. No one is around except for maybe some people far off in the grassy sandy lot.
The next instant I am at a walmart. I am walking behind three people I know from high school. I know I am dreaming. I'm not sure if I just felt it, or if I knew because of the sudden transition. I didn't have any conscious thought as to how I knew I was dreaming.
I am walking behind these people and they are pushing a baby stroller. I do not notice a baby in the stroller. One boy is waving a baby bottle in the air and I make a half-hearted attempt to see if I can get the bottle to fly out of his hand. It doesn't. I notice that all of the visuals are realistic. Just like real life. However, I don't feel anything, including my body moving, and I don't remember hearing anything. All these thoughts are in my head and my dream begins to become shaky. It's about to collapse so I try to rub my hands together. The second I go to move my arm I wake up. I maybe even ended up moving my real waking life arm.
🌠 A Dild runs in to 3 Deild's 🌈
Spend time today really giving time to my Mild daytime work - regularly stopping and RRC and then RC & looking for a few things to focus on in the space around me to hone in on and see what my space would look like as a dream -
Got my flash visualisation of me riding a giant wave as a water bender going through a tunnel and out the other side inorder to be at the very top of the wave and STOP and look and take in my surroundings- awesomeness 🌊
Any way did some Mild befor bed too- 10 mins and went to sleep with Mantra
" I am Lucid now - I am Lucid dreaming "
Woke up a few times in the night and set my app for monitoring sleep too - which woke me up Wonderfully and as I hit the snooze button gave me such joy to listen to the relaxing music -
Talking to someone- I was suddenly thinking " Hey I was in bed just a little time ago...but this couldn't be .... NO Wow- is this a dream?"
I walked towards a table and reached out to touch something on it almost scared as this was obviously WL- but wow I couldn't believe it - THIS IS A DREAM!
I was the most shocked and stoked ever that it was a dream coz it felt so much like my usual WL reality...
Lay still and went back to the dream space - kissing out of the corner of my eye I saw my dad walked by it doesn't matter as I am dreaming
Lay still and Kissing again 🌸 Z kissed me and said " Hallelujah " then we laughed!
Lay still and ina dream where a white bug thing is trying to get in to our room - its a dream so I am gonna go fly outside - I go and jump into the sky superwoman style 🌺 I pick a point on the horizon to fly to - I fly towards it but the place seems to keep morphing into different places - like first it's a beautiful grassy place then it's a lake then it's some other place - darkness starts to surround it and in my vision the place becomes a small circle with all black around it - oh well - not this time - it seems I witnessed some kind of implosion. Something to work in seeing through on my next
#474 - DILD - 4:45AM
Summary: I am out to lunch and when I notice the time is incorrect I become lucid. I decide to eat other people's food and really enjoy the No-bake cookies. I talk with a coworker, but he turns into someone else. Oneironaut Zero comes out of nowhere and punches me awake.
I have some unusual wakefulness for almost an hour after 3am, so I spend the time focusing on LD and meditating as much as I can. I mantra that I will do a nose plug in the next scene I am in as I fall into sleep.
I am at work and about to leave. I am looking out some window thinking that I remember the gas light being on in my car. I have confusion because I remember getting a full tank last night (IWL). I assume that someone has siphoned my gas and I have some anxiety about this, but eventually let it go as there is nothing I can do about it.
It's lunch time and I decide to go out to eat. I get in my car and realize I drove the other car and that's why my gas is low. I ignore it though and quickly find myself at some restaurant. It didn't seem fast food, but there is a woman behind a counter and a very empty looking menu board with some guy taking off to the side. I ask the woman how long it will be for a "Country Basket Meal" and, after some thought, says about 15 min. Ok that should do, but how much time do I have left to get back? I pull my phone out of my pocket and see the time go random and then settle on 3:48PM. WHAT? I should be off work not a lunch! I do a nose plug and, to my delight, realize this is all a dream. I now remember that this is exactly what I was trying to do and kind of feel dumb for not noticing all this sooner.
I turn and see a large pane glass window and almost phase out of it. I stop when I realize it's way too dark outside and very rainy. I don't want to deal with that so I turn and head into the main dining area. I look over my shoulder at the woman and yell, "That's OK. I don't the need Country Basket anymore. I've changed my mind." The woman doesn't look up at and I worry that she didn't hear me. Then I chuckle when I remember that none of this matters anyway. I continue on.
When I see all the people sitting at round tables eating various foods, I feel a little disappointed that I didn't put my order in after all. Guilt free eating is the best! Naturally I go ahead and decide to just start eating off people's plates at random. I interrupt some lady about to take a bite of some food and grab a handful of chips out of her plate. I feel the social stigma of doing such a thing in waking life bearing down on me, but I forge on reminding myself that there are no rules here. The chips have very little crunch and absolutely no taste at all. I move on. I have another thought that this would all be terrible if I had somehow fudged up my nose plug and all of this was actually the waking world. No I'm really certain this is a dream. The woman just smiles dumbly at me as I turn away. In fact, I notice the entire restaurant is staring at me. OK all eyes on me. I am the star of this movie!
My work buddy Jon is sitting at one table alone and I see a plate of no-bake cookies piled up high. I take one and Jon looks shocked and pissed. I say, "Dude, relax. This is all a dream. None of this even matters." He too smiles dumbly at me. I take a bite and the taste is so vivid and very delicious. I take time to enjoy all the realistic feelings of eating those cookies.
I remark, "Fucking hell, Jon! You have the best food!" Jon starts to get up to leave, but I tell him to come back and remind him this is a dream. Now, I notice a half eaten chicken breast sandwich will all the fixins. I go ahead and try a bite of that but it's exactly like the chips. I grab another cookie before walking away.
The restaurant now merges into a version of work and I see Brandon. I give him half the cookie and tell him to try it. He hesitates and I tell him it's really good and to just try it. We eat the cookie halves together, but I've mostly forgot to notice the taste now. Still I say, "See? Pretty good huh?" Brandon just gives me the same drugged up smile as everyone else and it's getting old now so I try to ignore it. I continue, "I'll probably tell you about this dream when I come to work today. That should be pretty weird." Now Brandon's hair grows out and turns black and his skin changes color. He looks a lot like a Mexican and I find him morphing and changing face to be a little uninteresting.
I turn to leave and head another direction. Suddenly, I see Oneironaut Zero looking real pissed and quickly heading my way. He throws a jab a my face and my vision distorts. I made effort to dodge it, but I think just he hit me. There was no sensation of getting hit, just my vision is distorted and I am disoriented. I try to focus, but I feel myself waking up now. The dream ends.
Also have a near lucid just before this dream. I was camping with my wife and we kept hearing this loud growling. I sleep and dream in the dream that I am a little girl and they find my half eaten bloody body in the woods. I wake up back to camping and find myself on a dark path. I hear the growling behind me and I am very frightened. Some how I get a vague sense that its a dream and I should face the monster. I know that if I do it will become something nice. I turn to the growling and find a large friendly dog with blue and black diamonds in his fur. I think I called him Diamond. I get him to follow me and my wife falls in love with the dog. We decide to take him home but we have to do something about all his fleas! I go back to sleep in the dream and have another dream where the dog is talking about planning to steal all our coffee with another dog.

I'm beginning to get the hang of this, I think...!
This was a short one, but while I was in the dream, it still felt like I had a sense of time. I think this was the first DILD I've had where I felt like I was actually there, as if I used the WILD technique.
I'm not sure when, but I became lucid for no apparent reason in the dream. There was no obvious trigger that made it happen... But nevertheless, I was with my dad outside a store at night and I remember him leaving me at the store, but then I was hiding and I saw him get out of the truck and walk somewhere. I tried to stay hidden behind a fence as I watched him walk into a house.
This dream was a lot longer than it may seem here, though...
Does anyone have any tips for the DILD technique, other than the really obvious ones?
HOLY SHIT, what a weird night. I must have had about 6-8 dreams, and I do remember most of them, but not enough for each to have its own entry.
Instead, allow me to talk about the first DILD I had with control.
It was pretty great.
It basically just involved me standing in the middle of a road, with oncoming cars, and each time a car got to me, I would just smash it in some way, or just straight up throw it off the road. It was honestly so much fun.
I'm not sure when I realized I was in a dream but I knew I wasn't in a lucid one before the car smashing started to happen.
There was one car that I think was a drunk driver, and he sped straight into me, but I stopped the car in its tracks, and then smashed and threw it.
Each car felt like I was smashing air at first, so I remember thinking "This doesn't feel realistic enough" so I was somehow able to add that I could feel the impact of each hit eventually.
I think this is the most control I've ever had in a dream now. I didn't do anything else because smashing cars was too much fun, I suppose, eheheheheh... I knew I was in a dream for sure though. I could feel myself about to wake up, but I ignored it and stayed in the dream.
I hope I have another one of these again.

I was wandering aimlessly in the swamps of the Zone, avoiding anomalies and mutants. I checked my inventory and saw that I'm low on ammo. I entered a building in an abandoned village. It was dark everywhere, I could only see the entrance. The building had wooden floor. Suddenly I became lucid. I told myself "This is dream." and proceeded with a nose-plug RC. It was cold, there was something wrong with that place. I wanted to leave it quickly, so I phased through the wall, but instead of coming out from the other side, everything went black. Shortly after I have awakened.
YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS FINALLY. I had a DILD for the first time ever, really.
I remember there was even one time a while ago where I was talking about lucid dreaming with my dad in a dream once and I still didn't become lucid, so I'm starting to feel a bit more confident now.
This one ended up being a bit sexual, so I'm going to spare most of the unnecessary details. Now, it also didn't feel as real as I'd have liked it to feel, I still had that sort of disconnected feeling, which is why I've been trying the WILD method, but this was still an LD so I'm happy about it.
At first, I was in some basement with maybe 1 or 2 other people and I don't remember exactly what was happening, but out of nowhere, some visual trigger popped up which caused me to go lucid. Go ahead and guess what it was. You won't guess it correctly. Go on, guess.
I'l tell you what it was.
It was as if it was on my laptop screen, brightly illuminated. It seemed like a hologram at the same time though. It was a snippet of information from THIS website. It looked like it was a thread/post with some information. I immediately recognized the dark blue style, and realized it was from here. Then it clicked. I was in a dream.
I almost woke up, but I managed to stay asleep.
Next thing I know, I'm outside of this building on the street following two... very attractive (Japanese?) women somewhere. No they weren't wearing anything.
Yeah. I said it got sexual. But at the same time, I'm unsure about my level of lucidity from here on out. But I'm pretty sure I was at least somewhat aware.
One of the women became separated from the other and I stayed with one and did some... questionable things. IT WAS GREAT. Nothing really too good though. All that I can really say is that her skin was really unusually soft and smooth. Pretty strange really.
I remember her saying something like "I like shorter guys." for some reason.
I was shorter than her though, so...?
Either way, this was my first real DILD ever.
Lucid dreaming is becoming a staple thought in my mind again, so this could help me have more LDs in the future.
But I'm going to mainly focus on the WILD method.
My house have turned into a huge castle. I was inside it with my siblings. The living room has changed into throne room, and my brother was a king. He told me that I must leave, being banned by him from his kingdom. When going out of the house, the trapdoor to the attic opened, and someone jumped down, landing in front of me. It was a young female. She had red hair and she was wearing a blue dress. Looking at her face I saw that she is a vampire. I immediately ran back into throne room, and told everyone about the vampire. The king immediately ran after the vampire. I followed him outside. Everything got a film grain and browny shades. I saw my brother running after sister, and thought "Back in time?". I opened the doors to castle and went inside.
Suddenly I found myself in a city. It was a warm summer noon. I was in an alley surrounded by tall buildings. It was leading to train station. I recalled that I was in that city before. It was a city from dream "Siege", which I have visited at the date 2015-08-23. I have attained lucidity. I made a successful nose plug RC, and ran towards the train station. It was place near the sea. Having no idea what should I do, I decided to finally learn flying. As I started to fly, I had a weird feeling. It was like I felt gravity working upon my body. I thought about a good way to fly, and I've got an idea. Position of my legs was controlling the height of my fly. When I had the legs straight, I was flying forward, slowly loosing height. When I lowered my legs, I was flying up, and when I bended my knees I was flying down. I was also flopping my hands like a brid does with it's wings. I made a few barrel rolls, flips and other evolutions. The dream slowly started to fade away, and I have waked up.
#465 - 4:12AM - DILD
I have a long dream segment where I am at some version of my first job ever; Long John Silver's. I am revisiting as my current self and watching the manager cook. I join in and fry some fish.
Now I am riding in a car. I see a Sonic restaurant that is totally black with huge billows of smoke coming from it. I watch as we get closer and I can hear some theatrical and dangerous-sounding-music. Suddenly, the scene dims for just a fraction of a second. Then, I hear a short fart (lol) and some happy sounding music as I find myself riding in the same car, but in a very normal looking neighborhood. I notice the Sonic building is completely gone, and because of this, I instantly become lucid. I look at the driver and see my wife. I tell her how weird that glitch was and how this is all a dream. She keeps her eyes on the road with both hands on the wheel and only smiles in reply.
I continue, " So we can fly. Go. Fly us away."
The car lifts up into the air, but I lose visuals at this point and find myself floating in a bardo. I recognize this for what it is and try to stimulate some feeling by making swimming motions. After a few seconds, I begin to feel like the air is thickening into water. I see something... some movement. An animated electric blue outline of a shark emerges from the darkness and opens its jaws. It all looks very psychedelic so there is no fear. Instead of moving away, I pretend to be the bigger fish and open wide ready to bite. I wake up before we collide.
So first, I dreamed my cousin, her friends and I were at a toy store when we were younger. Apparently, in the dream, my aunt (who lives in Hawaii) was living in our neighborhood. I asked her if she wanted to come along to the store. She says "Sorry, I can't be in this dream, I'm busy." For some reason, I didn't realize I was in a dream, even after she said that! So we went to the toy store. Stuff happened, Blah blah, and I woke up to sleep paralysis. I think. Or a false awakening, in a drem... But everything was so in detail, but blurry. I saw one of those things that hangs up pictures. I thought it was a little hole. Anyway, I couldn't see my hands, because I couldn't move. But I felt like I could move my hands. So I did a couple of reality checks. I tried to push my finger through my other palm, and it felt like it worked, But I wasn't sure. So I closed my eyes, plugged my nose (or felt like my hands were plugging my nose) And closed my mouth. Apparently I could breathe, and I tried to move my head. I sorta figured out how, for some reason a voice in my head said to "Imagine my head is a disc, and a DJ is moving it". I tried it, and I guess it worked! I turned into a dog, and my sister into a cat, and I don't remember what happened. Then, I turned into a Zayn Malik- looking guy, and after that, I lost lucidity.-

it's been a while, goodness. i haven't even been all that busy. but onto some dream stuff!
i'm going off to college for the first time this saturday so recently i've been having a lot of college dreams, as well as dreams about senior year events. as many as i've had it's been hard convincing my subconscious to take these situations as dream signs, so! lucidity hasn't happened in a school dream yet
but i did become lucid last night in a dild fashion! it was a ridiculously simple dream. i was just sitting on my bed when i suddenly felt the need to look at my hands. without my glasses they looked normal, but with my glasses on they seemed to have only three fingers each (maybe because i wear my glasses nearly every moment of the day?). i wasn't able to change the dream scene, but i did change the time of day to night, which made it easier for me to think clearly! not very eventful, but definitely a valuable experience in trying to command my dreams.

Wurlman visits. This never happens, but I'm sure its not a dream. I nose plug out of good practice. I have a hard time believing.
I am in hovering in the sky in some sort of Minecraft world. I see pixelated trees and cliff down to an ocean. Although I am high in the sky, I seem to be walking on a solid surface. I turn, look up, and see Wurlman next to me. I am now in a bedroom of my house though the floor still opens up to Minecraft. We start a conversation that I only recall bits of. I jokingly ask Wurlman, "What have you been doing? Jerking off in my parents bed?"
We both laugh at this and he makes some reply. We then start talking about lucid dreaming for a while.
I suddenly realize that we always talk of meeting and hanging out, but never have. I decide to make note of it.
I say, "Hold on. Now that we are together we should make sure this isn't actually a dream." I feel certain this isn't a dream, but decide it's just good practice to follow through with it. I do a quick nose plug and to my amazement I blow through. Oh wait. What? I nose plug several more times becoming more and more stunned that I am actually blowing through. After a moment, I fully accept this is indeed a dream. I tell Wurlman about it, but at that moment the dream break up and fades to black. I forget to notice this is merely a bardo nor do I remember to try to DEILD.
I am a baseball star. I am the teams all star hitter. We practice and I since no one wants to pitch to me I toss one up myself and smash it. A player throws back, but I can catch it. Now I completely have a hard time with any hand-eye coordination. The coach comes out to talk to us.
#459 - DILD - 2:25AM
I feel that I have been lucid a long time as I wonder around the dream environment. I lose some lucidity and play with a large bubble of water that causes a gigantic flood.
I forget the begging of this dream, but I recall being lucid and yelling something rude at someone through a window. I feel bad for a second then think, It's ok. This is MY dream. I shout, "THIS! IS! MY! DREEEAAAAMMMMM!" I think that I have been lucid for a really long time and I am amazed by it. I have no real goal at the moment and just wander around the dream environment.
My lucidity drops a lot, but I have some general sense that this is a dream. I find myself still outside next to some shed in a wooded area on a hill. There is a bush and a tree with a huge bubble of water attached to it. I poke at it and it flexes and bounces a bit like jello. I then smooth my hand over one side allowing the water to flow with it. This unleashes a torrent of water as if the hillside is at it's very peak of capacity and I put it all out of balance. I expect to feel wet for a second, then realize that I shouldn't. Although I have a feeling it doesn't matter, I still take my phone out of my pocket and hold it up out of the water to protect it from getting damaged. I ride waves down a massive hill into a small village. I feel butterflies in my stomach from the strong sense of falling. I shout, "Look out everyone water is coming! It's a tidal wave!" After I say this, I see another massive wave of water converging on my location. I am quickly washed farther down hill then land in a dry area near a metal shed with a garage door. I still have momentum and I slide through the doorway with some tall, bald, and muscular man. I immediately try to leave, but the man shuts the door. I am confused what has happened and have lost all lucidity now. I feel out of place here and try to push past the man, but a woman barges in the door. I try to slide past them, but they just block my way. The man and woman argue over something and the man says, "No. I have a visitor. See?"
I make a hand gesture signalling that I just mean to leave, but the man is very insistent that I stay and not blow the lie.
He goes on, "We are talking about weed and stuff." I ignore all of this and continue to search for a way out. I wake up.
I am to be executed by electrocution. I tell another prisoner that I don't care. They can't kill me. In fact, it will only make me stronger. I know that if they kill me here, I will come back as a god. I will enter into the internet and control everything like some all powerful AI. I do note that this is hurt very bad and be very scary. I tell myself to think of it like I am having an OBE and to slip out of my body into the network.
I am led away into the public execution area before a crowd. The man with a mic asks me if I am Jesus Christ. I tell him, "Some say this is true, but I do not." The crowd erupts into an uproar and the man belly laughs. I fell no shame only trepidation. However, I bodily step on the stage waiting for it to all go down. I actually laugh with the man and make some joke of my own. I wake up.

Was in my work place with a college he was asking about my brothers (who are married now) as if they were still boys - I looked at him pondering and then said" this is strange, I must be dreaming" - I became Lucid
As I stared at him aware he was a DC he changed from being a college into a strange man and his face kept changing..." What do you represent to me?" I asked
He didn't answer but his face started to melt. I repeated the question loosing lucidity for a bit as I did so - but then then I noticed small spontaneous fires starting up in quite a few spots across and around the room ( a sewing room so there is lots to burn!) This made me realise I was dreaming again although I tried to put the fire out at first ha ha. I turned back to the DC and he was laughing at me wildly " Tell me what you represent!" I shouted - I can see I got a bit too involved here and ended up back in my physical - I am not Usually so interested in DC's but this one really hooked me in- lol
A few false awakenings this mornings also but only realising after - one where I had a good bit of awareness tho ; a little girl playing nearby to where I lay " can you see me?" I asked
" Yes - I can see you " She answered
I had asked because the boarder wasn't clear as to whether I was awake or asleep...could still feel my physical world but also knew other world was close by by hearing it - not seeing.
After she had answered I tried gently to turn my head to see her in an effort to join the dream world but my physical body was woken then too much!
