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
I was at my house. Something about "pride and prejudice" and Mr Darcy.
Shattered glass on the floor.
This dream, which I meant to write down yesterday, is a fragment. I recalled some of it yesterday (Thursday) morning. I recalled a more vivid dream this morning which I'll post later in a separate entry.
I was at a factory, where loads of people were shopping at various booths, almost like a convention. At this place were the four Best Friends Zaibatsu, whom my girlfriend and I hung out with, watching video games and anime.
Not the most exciting dream, but I jotted it down nonetheless.
1. Zombie apocalypse underway. Military is leaving as they feel their job is done but many zombies remain. High atop some buildings someone who was asleep does not believe there are zombies angers a crowd of them and I shout "run!!!" I am on a patrol with two others. We walk past some prostitutes, they accost us and put their hands in our pockets, trying to steal our wallets. I point a rifle at one and we move on. A big burly body guard comes after us and racially insults one of my companions. We are going into a subway tunnel, there are soldiers by the entrance. I load my rifle, an m-14. Clearly cycling the action and removing the magazine. I ask army guy for 7.62x49 ammo, he says he gave his last few rounds away. I tell him I would like a .223 when military leaves, he describes it's virtues for zombie elimination .
2.At the farm with some girl, just hanging out. Talking about staff at work. There is lots of photo equipment lying around. We just talk and eat some food. Think about swimming, but realize "the water will be cold." My uncle arrives with some other sales type guy. They are outside talking. I go to the kitchen sink and peek out the window. I see them talking. One has a purple car parked near where they talk. I go back and we clean up the equipment and mess from eating. Other family members start arriving to do some work on the pool/house.
3. am at work (in a different building) mrs. x tells me supervisor was looking for me, I ask why she is telling me this, another staff member tells me "because he never knows where to find anyone!" I realize that earlier mrs x had asked me to get a candy bar, which I give her, then I walk away. I remember the wrapper, and return to give it to her, saying " this is yours too." Then there is a radio contest and wife wins a fanny pack from morning comedy DJ.
fragment: Flying in a helicopter over woods at the farm. They have flooded with a dark brackish water. I see many alligators lurking in the water. I point out 2 large alligators in a spot near the old woodpile/firepit.
I arrive at a large tan colored warehouse building. There is a high chain-link fence around its perimeter. Inside the fence is a paved area all around the building. I am on a bike or motorcycle? I notice several small green peacocks strutting around. I admire them and think they are quite beautiful. One takes notice of me and starts coming in my direction, after just a moment I can tell its pissed off. I notice another heading my way, and then more. I get my vehicle moving faster and they start to fly, swooping in toward me, I'm scared, their beaks look very sharp. I am surprised by Their speed. I make it to the warehouse enter able and there are some other people standing around. The dream shifts and I am riding passenger in my new car, an old friend is driving I warn him to slow down and he looses control, Narrowly missing a series of deadly obstacles, fire hydrants, trees, and parked cars. We are off road and the car is sliding and spinning full rotations. It comes to a stop on railroad tracks. I look out the back window and see a train coming. I warn my friend and he pulls of the tracks just in time. The train is red and silver, a passenger train.
Fragment 1: a girl I knew from high school is at my house conducting a survey or completing some report. I consider asking her out?, but notice huge diamond rings on every finger. I assume she is married.
Fragment 2: another new car dream. I spin a complete 360 and come to a graceful stop at the top of my driveway
I'm walking around with featureless faces. Some black, some white. There's a distant song playing. I think it's the whole reason why I'm here, so I continue to let it pull me. I remember me wondering why am I following the song, but no answer comes. Suddenly the music stops and I do too. Then I hear a screeching noise. Then I see a face of someone I see at school. He just stands there, staring. I sense he's giving me a message but why won't he just talk. I ignore it and continue to wonder why the music abruptly stopped. Somehow I'm moving without it and after this I'm drifted into another dream-state of mind.
I'm walking the hall and I see my cousin. I go over and speak to her and she smiles and grabs my hand. She asks me what i'm doing here and I don"t remember responding. We come in contact with the student body of my school and we start running away from them. I shout "IT'S A STAMPEDE!" and we (my cousin, some guy, and I) start to sprint down the hall and I fall and reach out my hand for help but they keep running and I'm left in total abandonment. I look behind me and see hundreds of students running towards me. I close my eyes and open them and see some guy giving me his hand. I take it and we run.
I'm suddenly near more students but this time I'm alone and have tons of confidence. I walk into this round-about and reach some steps and walk down them. There I am accompanied by a weird sensational silence and as I start to leave the steps behind me collapse to nothingness. After that I cannot recall very much more.
I'm loading books into my locker and look to my left and see a guy looking at me. He stares with such wonder and promise and I look away in nervousness realizing it's the guy I like.
