Didn't sleep too well last night. As it would turn out, I had a pretty good 2 hour nap late into the evening, so come bed time later that night, I really wasn't all that tired. Therefore, the night was spent sort of sleeping but frequently waking up, much to my dismay. Luckily enough, I was able to recall multiple dreams, but on the downside, they're all basically fragments. Here they are anyways:
I was eating at Olive Garden, when all around me the customers and waiters and waitresses all started going crazy, dancing around like lunatics, throwing things at each other. I huddled up further into my booth and continued to enjoy my breadsticks. Clearly my dream self has important priorities!
I was in this huge house with a lot of my family as well as complete and total strangers. The front side of the house was open to the outside street, where multiple houses alongside it were selling goods. Not much of note here.
I was in a small room that looked like something out of Homestuck, and on the wall, projected, was a cool looking animation of David Strider and Jade Harley. This fragment may have been a part of the same house dream just before it. Funny I had Homestuck appear here, as I've not been into it in a couple of years now.
I was on an alien world, and everything was blowing up. ......
My ex and I entered into a contract of sorts, and we were living together and going about our day-to-day pretty happily. Still learning to get into the habit of reality checking when she's involved, as she's basically the biggest dream sign I have.
Since starting back in my lucid dreaming practices a couple of weeks back, I've recalled quite a few dreams, almost one every night, barring a few days, but I've yet to put any of those in here. With that being said, here's this morning's, in which I recalled two pretty sparse fragments and one non lucid dream.
My dad was insistently questioning me about shower curtains. Literally all I've got on this one. What could it mean? Are the shower curtains symbolic of the walls we put up around ourselves? 6deep8me.
I was in a very ritzy looking cafe, enjoying a cup of coffee and browsing my phone, looking at various pictures of a girl I thought was cute. Again, just a fragment. Unlike the strange nature of that first fragment, however, this dream had a nice, fluffy, happy feeling to it. Now, for the actual full non-lucid:
I was in some sort of ruins, and could see a sort of heads up display that looked like No Man's Sky's HUD. Lately, it seems like NMS has worked its way into my dreams in subtle ways. I was exploring these ruins on some sort of vague quest, gathering up materials and items. Eventually I found my way into a big building, which looked like something straight out of the game The Witness. It even had a similar puzzle inside of it that I was required to solve. Floating above the ground was a chrome-colored monolith with a red tree insignia on it. Touching the monolith made it dive into the ground, and several huge, red trees sprouted up around me. A river of orange-ish colored water began flowing between the crevices in the floor. How would I solve this puzzle? Unfortunately you get the cliffhanger that never ends on this one, as that's all I can remember.
I recall a fragment in which I was drinking a cheap beer. It was somewhat horrible, it tasted like it was pure toxic chemicals instead of usual beer.
I recall only a short fragment. I was heading to my toilet - there was an utter mess, trash lying around, bare walls with all the plumbing and wiring visible. I was going there with a plunger.
Dream - Lucid
I don't quite remember the setting, but it seemed dark, like night was falling or had just fallen. I was pregnant and about to have my new baby. There were people with me, but I don't think it was anyone that I know.
I then had the baby. I was holding my new baby, which actually was my daughter now being "reborn"; she wasn't a newborn, but she wasn't quite as big and strong as she is now IWL. She had more teeth than she does now though, even a few in the back of her mouth. She was clothed in only a diaper, and I wanted to breastfeed her. I put her to my right breast, which was exposed, and she began drinking, though she only took a few sips before she didn't want anymore; she wanted a faster return and my boobs weren't cutting it. I was disappointed.
I then was no longer holding her, and my shirt, a night shirt I wear often IWL, was half-soaked in breast milk from the breast she didn't nurse from. Shoulda thought about that; I know better.
IWL I do want to breastfeed our next child longer; circumstances were chaotic when my daughter was born, so I only got to breastfeed for 6 weeks...wasn't even really breastfeeding, but pumping as she didn't want the breast; like in the dream, she didn't get a fast enough return.
Can't wait to get my recall back up. This is a dream I had this morning so it was easy to remember. I dream so vividly every night, all night, but my recall has slipped due to life circumstances. I'll work my way back up!
I got really sunburned yesterday & did a lot of yard work for my elderly mother-n-law, so my body is very unhappy w/ me. I had a dream that I was in an auditorium, one I've never seen before. The dream was too erratic to explain. The scenes were constantly jumping around. Maybe it was due to the pain I'm having. I did notice that the people in my dream were mostly from my childhood which makes some sense. Lately I've found a couple of my childhood friends & talked to some others that I've stayed in touch with... Tomorrow should be a better day since I don't have any obligations & my husband will go back to work per usual after the weekend. Also my sunburn should be a little better & my pain level should be better. Today I am working on a dreamscape that I would like to have. I'm going to meditate about it & try to get a good visual.
So this is recall of last nights dream, fragments of it at least.
One fragment includes me walking down my road in pjs that were not my own, they were pale blue and flannel type. I was kind of sliding about rather than walking really. At the corner of my road was a poorly built shelter and it was raining. In the shelter was a stand with my parcel on it (last week I had ordered some things from Amazon) it was the last one to arrive but it had already been partially opened and looked as if it had been wrapped back up in brown paper and tie cords.
Another fragment or 'event' happened in what looked like a decent sized motel room. Everything had a sort of old western aesthetic to it, the floor was carpeted and worn down. The bed that folded out from the wall was a queen size and had brown bedding. Opposite the bed there was an old radiator which looked to not be in use and was being used instead as a jewellery stand (because that makes perfect sense). Behind that was a wall vent, with the fancy designed metal so it didn't look boring in the wall (at least I assume that's why people did that). In the dream I actively took pieces of jewellery from it to inspect and recognised some as my own, it was all themed with the old western aesthetic again, leather cord, animal teeth, wooden beads of primary colours and aboriginal design kinda thing.
Then I went to inspect the wall vent and it turned out to be storing stuff. I found my BuckyBalls (tiny magnetic ball bearings that you can make cool geometric shapes out of) with some of them in a smaller container beside. I remember scolding myself in the dream about "that's where the others have gone!"
One very short fragment I recall is when I found out I was in the blue pjs, I was sliding down something and that's it...
I only remember fragments of this dream. I went outside with some friends.
I dreamt that I was with my brother and my cousin and we were on one of the 'Fire Emblem'-Stages from SSB4. I still have this image in my head of seeing me in third-person-view when I noticed that I WAS DREAMING (1st LD)!!!! BUT then I wanted to rub my hands to know how it feels and the moment my hands touched I was kicked out and woke up. I WAS SO UPSET! IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN AMAZING DREAM!
Bed around 11:30 pm. Went to yoga, was exhausted and my body was/still is aching. I notice on the days that I am super tired, I don't recall my dreams very well at all. And...many activities deter dream recall, I am noticing....
I was working on something with a group of people. It was harmonious, no turbulence. And it was actually a first person dream. That's all I can recall.
In my dream I didn't see anything, rather it was all feeling and hearing. I was laying down somewhere, probably in a bed. My arms were around a man, I could feel his hands around my waist and back. We were enjoyably pressed together. He said something and I nibbled either his jaw or part of his shoulder or even his neck. He held me tighter and said something along the lines of,"You're getting smarter doing things like this to me." I'm not really sure about the dialogue though, honestly I wasn't focused on it at all.
1: I was going around the suburb where my school is checking out real estate (fragment).
2: I was playing hearthstone and instead of picking your class for arena I could pick different heroes who had already had certain number of wins. The first time I did it I picked one which would get 25-75 wins, so I ended up with 53 or so and Gold ridiculous amount of gold. I showed this to my friend at school and he couldn't believe it, as he kept on only getting ones with 2-3 wins. This was a rather odd dream, particularly as when I was actually playing the game I got transported to a New York style city.
3: I remember fragments about someone vomiting and a few people being in an all terrain vehicle.
I'm sure I remembered more but I have forgotten a decent chunk, lazy wakings hehe.
*Tried to WILD+WBTB again last night, with no success at all. I've reached the conclusion that I cannot attempt to lucid dream until the weather gets cooler. Even with the air conditioner on, it's still painfully hot and uncomfortable upstairs, keeping me from being able to relax properly. I'll have to wait until it gets cooler, or until I get a new fan, because my old one broke. For now, I'm going to focus on improving my dream recall by writing all my dreams down here.*
I did have 2 small dreams last night. The first one was this:
I think it involved being near my school, but the only thing I really remember was boarding a really cramped school bus, and sitting next to someone whom I've probably never seen before. I don't remember their face, it was odd...
The second one was:
The next one involved me being far away from a hill that had a wooden gate that was open. I was at the bottom of the hill with a sniper rifle picking off "bad guys" that really looked like they belonged in Far Cry 3. I've been playing a lot of that game lately, so I guess this was bound to happen eventually. My parents were near them for some reason, and I was defending them I suppose.
I don't remember much else, so I guess that's it. It sucks that I need to wait for the weather to get better in order for me to try to LD, but it shouldn't take too long since it's already September.
I had a long and loopy NLD, it was entertaining so I thought I would share .
1: I am on the tram with my brother, about to leave for school. We are talking about this fountain of youth or something that had just been discovered. Suddenly, a man with white hair comes aboard, and he started zooming around so fast he comes a blur. What on earth is going on? I think to myself as he dashes around the tram, but I soon realizes in horror that he is taking us prisoner. He stops in front of us suddenly, and says his name is Rabbit. He has tied up most of the people in the tram by now, and he embarks on a long winded monologue about what he is doing and why. He apparently stumbled across the fountain as well and managed to steal a drink from it, but it gave him super human speed and strength, not the 'youth' everyone else thought. He commandeered the tram and drove us towards the school, not stopping at any of the normal stops.
Scene transition, and My brother and I and two friends have managed to sneak off the tram and are trying to find the source of Rabbit's power, the well, to stop him. We walk into a warehouse sort of place, and inside it is similar to n airport security sort of place. We know that Rabbit is likely after us, so we hurry through the security area and I manage to get through a side curtain/door to the warehouse area. The others follow and we find ourselves sneaking through the warehouse, past workers and guards, until we reach a square panel in the floor; the entrance to the fountain. The four corners of the panel have a sort of straw plug in them keeping it down, so my brother and I set to work removing them with Allen keys. I slowly manage to tease out the first corner, and quickly settle two others, but my brother has screwed up his side and I try to take over and salvage it. We get the feeling that Rabbit is on his way, and we need to act as fast as possible. The dream dissolves from there (I don't know if we managed to get the panel open )
I am sure I had some other dream fragments but it has been a while since I woke up an can barely remember them. I think it had something to do with Physics and my dad, some secret of the universe.
Not too much detail for this, but this one involved being in either a dark room or an alleyway, and I remember it could be an alley because there was a police car circling the area. Maybe police being in my dreams is a representation of guilt? But I don't feel guilty about anything super important, so that's strange.
Another fragment of a dream from last night is where I seemed to be in a dark building's entrance, passing by my parents, and going out into a big bright room with other people I know. ...This one ended up getting a little sexual, but that's not the point. It appears that the sexual portion was a result of mild lucidity, so that's a good sign I suppose.
Both dreams from last night weren't very memorable and were small, but I need to write them down here regardless.~
i saw a small, black rabbit with wings in my room. i thought it was cute and fluffy, but when i held it in my hands its skin felt like sandpaper. i dont remember anything else
