      Lucidity in the Time of Covid-19

      How has all this covid stuff affected your lucid hobby? Have the dreams started to have covid related things in them. So far I do not see DCs with masks on.

      Weird... I was just thinking about this when I first woke up this morning?!

      Since I started lucid dreaming during the height of it I canít really say if itís affected my dreaming. I donít get out and about as much as I would like given weíre in lockdown 3 in the UK so I do wonder once all this is over and some normality returns will my dreams become more interesting and varied given I will be doing more and seeing more again. Thereís very little for me to RC about given Iím mainly at work and home all the time as well. So I wonder if this will be different when I go more places and see more things that might remind me to RC.

      COVID themes pop up in my dreams sometimes but itís not something thatís on my mind constantly. They usually pop up after reading or watching something before bed on the subject. I heard on the radio recently though that apparently people are experiencing a higher volume of vivid dreams during this pandemic and a ďdream expertĒ said that itís most likely due to an increase in anxiety about the subject and people having more restless sleep. Could be an interesting study!

      I have some Dream Sign related to The feeling that I forgot my mask and gloves or being in places that are very crowded, like the streets of NY. Or even LIFE before Covid-19. Prompts, an RC.

      These are some of the techniques that I tried while we were under lockdown. Not all worked for me but, I tried.

      I had one dream that seems related, and this was back in early March last year. I was with a girlfriend (unknown to me in physical reality), and she told me that in ten years she would develop the disease COP-19. I knew instinctively that it was a lung-related disease.

      This is a wee bit strange for two reasons: 1) normally it takes years before stuff from the physical world makes it into my dreams, and 2) COP-19 was actually an international conference held back in 2013, but it does sound rather close to COVID-19, which name started to appear in the news media around the time of the dream.
      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      Not much. I had one dream back in the spring about accidentally catching COVID. Otherwise... nothing. I think I have low anxiety about it?

      Did you have to change your Lucid routine in some way? Like instead of Plugging your nose, you RC when you washed your hands or something like that? I think that some of us also dream of you family members more often than we used too? For me, I would have dreams were I'm back in time type dream.

      Also, I've had this dream. :https://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/hum...11-2020-89246/

      I had a weird dream. I had a dream that I was fighting some bug, it was a shape-shifting Alien bug that stung me during the fight. Don't worry, I was helping Hope with fighting this DC. In fact, she would have gotten stung if I didn't get in the way. Everything happened so fast. I felt the sting when it happened then we killed it... Sometime later, in the middle of the night, in the dream. I woke up. I felt sick in a strange way. I went to the bathroom and I looked in the mirror, at first everything was fine. Then all of a sudden I looked down at my stomach and my stomach look swollen like I was pregnant. I recall that I had no shirt I was half-naked. I looked at my nipples and they were lactating. However, it wasn't milk that was coming out, it was a like silkworm web, sticky liquid? It was weird and I looked in the mirror looked like I was all messed up... Nothing didn't scream, you are dreaming at this point... I know... Then at one point, I felt like I can't let my mom see me like that. I don't know? It's like that species of parasitic wasp that eats victims from the inside out. Adult members LIKE the alien thing in my dream, like this species Dolichogenidea xenomorph, inject eggs into live caterpillars or even I believe they also do it to other bugs too? Its singer is like a long needle-like injector known as an “ovipositor.” Their offspring then slowly devour their victims from the inside out before bursting out like the creature from John Hurt’s chest in “Alien.” When I did wake up though, my eyes were red with some weird red ring around my eyes. We are dealing with an Alien bug in a way, AKA Covid19... Stay safe everyone!!
      I got better in catching these type of dreams though.

      I don't think my routine has changed much other than it got me focused on dream stuff more. I do not get much interaction with people and I think my dreams are becoming more solitary, like just me walking around and almost no DCs. Last night it was not real dreams but more the endless loop short anxiety dream snippets that happen sometimes like when you get a new job. It had to do with the vaccine and such but had no real content other than general stuff but it kept repeating despite me being aware what was happening and demanding my mind stop it.

      Strangely, my dreams still represent the old world, as though there is no pandemic. No DC has worn a mask yet!

      Question? Have anyone here seem to have more or fewer Nightmares because of the Pandemic itself?

      Barely got anything Varus related. There was one dream where I acknowledged the peculiarity of crowded shoppiing centers, and a few others where I mildly questioned my being present in a (since closed) restaurant. I ended up shrugging off both.

      Furthermore, I don't seem to pay attention to masks in-dream, not on myself nor on others. Which is odd, given how careful I am with that, and how (silently) annoyed I get when I see passerbys not doing their part.

      well it finally happened. I had a dream where I dropped my face mask and had to go back for it. I was concerned that people would be mad I was not wearing it.

      Oh, I had a funny one last night:

      I was living in a commune and someone was being tormented by visions of cruel men wearing masks and he feared for his and our lives. I myself could see what he was seeing so I believed him. Interestingly, these men would rush out from the shadows but once in the light, their mask and evil intents would disappear instantly and they would just walk past. One was simply busy in front of a mirror in a washroom across the hallway, doing no one harm. I thought it would be better to reassure him first before I investigated the haunting so this was my attempt:

      "That man, he was wearing a mask... [I realize wearing a mask is normal] That's normal! We all wear masks since the pandemic [I realize none of us in the commune is wearing a mask] Well, we're not wearing masks, but that's just because this is a dream... So let's just ignore the fact that this is a dream and latch on to what's important: we're all supposed to be wearing masks. Nothing special there"

      It's kind of both an insect joke and a covid joke. My brain did that... It makes sense.

      Had a dream last night that I was at the race track, In a race car, getting a vaccine again because there was a strain that mutated and people got sick. (Major of the population WHERE I LIVE.) There was another lockdown.

      I had an appearance of Covid stuff in my lucid last night. I was fully aware of it being a dream and had lots of control, but the dream randomly tossed in Covid stuff. This is the entry.

      Usually not, but there has been a few times masks involved.

      I recently had a zombie apocalypse dream that was definitely Covid influenced. Just with the pandemic, around here, people acting like the threat is completely over and all caution has been forgone. In my dream, it was like that, a lul in the infection and it seemed the zombie virus was under control. But then, all of a sudden, it wasn't. People started turning again and it spread faster than ever, lock downs went back into place but it was too late in the second round, the full fledge apocalypse began.

      You know, at work, we have gone through the entire pandemic without anyone being sick (Aside from the few that caught mild cases of Covid from family members and had to be out for the required period.) But not a single person caught a regular cold or flu all winter long. But now that the masks are coming off, several people getting bad colds, and going home puking with the flu lol. I'm one of maybe three people at the work place still keeping the mask.

      I recently had a zombie apocalypse dream that was definitely Covid influenced. Just with the pandemic, around here, people acting like the threat is completely over and all caution has been forgone. In my dream, it was like that, a lul in the infection and it seemed the zombie virus was under control. But then, all of a sudden, it wasn't. People started turning again and it spread faster than ever, lock downs went back into place but it was too late in the second round, the full fledge apocalypse began.

      I had something like that in October of 2019. For a while felt bad about this dream. Although, mine seemed more like the black plague/ Zombie.
      I recall that in the dream: the following message is transmitted at the request of my State Police Department. The mandatory twenty-four-hour curfew remains in effect for Cook County. All residents are ordered to stay in their homes until further notice. The National Guard continues to monitor the safety of all neighborhoods, deliver food rations, and provide transport to CDC Quarantine Zones.
      In the southbound lanes, a convoy of four camouflaged Humvees speeds by.
      The threat of contagion remains high. Initial symptoms include fever, severe headache, and muscle pain. If you believe that you or anyone in your home is infected, display a red piece of cloth in a street-facing window. If anyone in your home is deceased, display a black piece of cloth in a street-facing window.
      And then you watch as someone you know died in front of you. Tears and blood running down their cheeks. I gave them a shot. The dc almost smiles, then says, their words thickening, “I know I’m just hallucinating this, but you’re my angel. You came back to me. I was so afraid to die alone in that house.”
      I apparently, died? But, I didn't. I was also with Spellbee2 in the dream, stuck in a house.
