    Hyu's Adventures

    I've been lucid dreaming all my life. But it is only in late 2010 that I was introduced to what lucid dreaming actually is,
    and that it is possible to induce lucid dreams. Soon after, I discovered Dreamviews.
    These are the adventures and the curiosities I experience in my dreams.

    ~ Recurring Locations ~

    • The Beach (Image)
      A place I often end up in if I get lost, or if I use a means of teleportation without thinking of a destination.
      It is always dusk whenever I am there. Usually the beach is empty, but occasionally something of interest can be found.
      The beach is a place of serenity. A place where I can be alone and safe.
    • Teraluna - Riven (Image) (Image)
      Teraluna is an inhabited moon within a binary star system.
      It is orbiting a blue gas giant. It is only sparsely lit by both suns, which are quite far away.
      Riven is a hidden sky city, hovering over the seas of Teraluna.
      It is a safe haven to all it's inhabitants, and home to Yuya.
      The city is lit entirely by colorful bioluminescent plants and creatures, giving the place a rather surreal and vibrant look.
      Riven is my favorite place to visit whenever I am lucid.

    ~ Recurring Characters ~
    • Yuya (Image)
      She has been in my dreams ever since my early teens.
      Formerly a goddess of water, she now lives in Riven.
      She is my spirit guide (although she does not like to be labeled as such)
      The connection I experience with her is incredible.
      She is my friend, my companion, my love, my ecstasy, my guide and my teacher.
    • Faye (Image)
      She is my dream guide, and often changes her appearance.
      But for some reason she has recently turned evil, and now haunts my dreams.
      She is no longer the same person, and can seemingly no longer be reasoned with.
    • Silver (Image)
      A character from childhood dreams.
      He used to be my rival, but is now my dear friend.
      He is not a man of many words, and I do not encounter him very often.
    • Liv (Image)
      Liv is a succubus, a kind of demon.
      She is young, inexperienced, shy, but immensely kind and compassionate,
      even though at first glance she looks demonic and dangerous.
      Nowadays she lives in Riven. Yuya and I guide her on her path towards adulthood.
    • Shinave (Image)
      Formerly a goddess of ice. She is a wise and intelligent person.
      She is Yuya's mother.
    • Ifrit (Image)
      Formerly a god of fire. A being of terrible force and power, but also incredible wisdom.
      He has lived for many hundreds of years, and still upholds old and conservative ideals.
    • Selene
      A character from childhood dreams.
      She has fallen to the templars a long time ago.
    • Templars
      A vile force of darkness that has threatened my dreams in the past.

    1. Helping someone to face her nightmares

      non dream - lucid - non lucid

      My dreams start getting more vivid again, even though I'm still quite stressed and I don't have enough time to sleep properly.
      I didn't believe that my dream recall would improve before I have more free time, but I am very happy that it seems to do so.

      I am walking through the city. I become lucid for no apparent reason, I just know that I am dreaming.
      For some reason I feel the urge to use some form of dream control.
      I look up into the sky, there isn't a single cloud. It is a very nice day.

      I point my right hand at the sky and command it to rain with my mind.
      It starts raining, even though there are no clouds.
      The DC's around me realize what I have done and become pissed.
      I don't really care about them and just start dancing in the rain whilst creating background music for the dream.

      I am quite impressed how easily I can control the dream, it is so stable.
      Some DC's approach me with an angry look on their faces.
      What do they want?

      "Go away."

      All DC's around me cease to exist. This is an intriguingly good feeling.
      I should probably do something more productive though, even though this is a lot of fun.

      "Excuse me."

      What the hell?
      I turn around. There is a women standing in the rain. Didn't I just remove all DC's?

      "Hello friend, what brings you into my dreams?"

      (I have no idea why I feel the urge to talk like this, but it is not the first time this has happened.)

      "I'm sorry, I do not mean to intrude."
      "It's quite alright."
      "I need your help."

      I look at her closely. I'd guess that she's in her late 20's, maybe early 30's.
      She has natural curly red hair and very dark eyes.
      I approach her with confidence.

      "What is it you need help with?"
      "There is darkness within me, darkness which I cannot face alone."
      "I need help Hyu, I need help facing this darkness."

      "Do we know each other?"
      "You do not know me, but I have read many things about you."

      I feel the sudden urge for an adventure.

      "Lead the way, friend."

      She opens a portal, using the hand flicking trick I have used before.
      I find it somewhat impressive, then again, why would she not know?
      I form an energy shield around myself and follow her through the portal.
      Somehow I just understood that using a shield can prevent some of the portal trouble I have encountered before.

      We are in a very big room. It looks absolutely amazing.
      The architecture is absolutely blowing my mind, everything is so detailed.
      It is a blend of old japenese, victorian but also futuristic design.
      The neon-stripe lighting and the heavy usage of glass gives it a bit of a Tron-look but for some reason it blends very well with the older elements.
      The windows are very colorful, like in Christian churches, except the drawings are clearly not religious.

      I realize I'm getting distracted. I follow this women over a marble path.
      There are doors to the left and right of the path, but they don't lead anywhere.
      There are no walls or anything, just doors.
      I get the impression that I am in the dreams of this women and that she created all of this.

      "This is highly impressive!"
      "Do you like it?"
      "Absolutely. Have you created all of this?"
      "I have indeed. I'm an architect, I have let my inspiration run wild for a few weeks, and this is what I ended up creating."
      "Wow, this is really impressive, so you can create persistent scenes?"
      "Yes. If I want to keep a scene I save it behind one of these doors."
      "Wow... I'm speechless."

      She seems to be very experienced with dreaming.
      She laughs.

      "Says the guy who can step through the fabric of space."
      "I'm an architect, this is what I do, it's not really that hard for me."

      "I see..."

      The marble path ends before another door, but this one is very different.
      All other doors were white stone with beautiful carvings, this one is pitch black.
      There are many Japanese seals attached to the door.
      I've seen them in manga before.
      Some of them look very recent, others slightly older. All the older ones are destroyed.

      "This is where I have sealed my nightmares... the darkness."

      She sealed them away? I didn't know anything like that was possible.

      "I can no longer contain them, I need to face them and destroy them."
      "I have no doubt that I will manage to destroy them, but I am too afraid to face them alone."

      I was wondering how I could possibly be of help to someone who can do all of this.
      But I suppose this makes sense.
      I power up and draw a protective energy bubble around us using my phoenix wings.

      "Let's do it."

      With a wave of her hand all the seals disappear and the door opens.
      There is nothing visible inside, it's just darkness.
      But even though I cannot see it, I can feel it, VERY clearly.
      Fear emits from this room, just pure fear.
      The women starts shaking.
      I grab her hand.

      "You can do this."
      "Yes... SHOW YOURSELF!"

      The yelling was unexpected.
      A ball of pure darkness comes out of the room and hovers in front of us.
      She grabs my hand strongly and I reinforce the protective bubble even further.


      Her voice is very powerful, I can feel it resonating in my body.
      She then speaks some sort of incantation in Japanese which I cannot understand.
      The darkness catches on purple fire and disintegrates before my eyes.
      As the last bit of it disappears, the Door that was housing it turns into ashes.
      How impressive!

      The women drops to her knees.

      "Are you alright?"
      "Yes, now that the darkness is gone, I truly am."
      "Thank you for you support young dreamer."
      "You're welcome."

      She summons a small engraved stick of wood and hands it over to me.
      It is immensely detailed and very beautiful.

      "A gift for your troubles."
      "Thank you!"
      "I am very sorry, but you must leave now."
      "I don't usually let others into my dreams, please understand."
      "Of course."

      To be honest, I don't, but it would be disrespectful to say otherwise.
      If these are truly her dreams than she deserves privacy whenever she so desires.
      I draw my phoenix wings and prepare to teleport to Teraluna.
      I feel that I am no longer welcome in this world, I will not be able to visit it again once I teleport away.

      "Goodbye friend."

      I step through the fabric of space and the dream ends.
    2. Help from my Dream Guide

      , 03-29-2011 at 03:29 AM (Hyu's Adventures)
      non dream - lucid - non lucid

      I am in the countryside, walking up a path which leads to my house. (I have never seen this place)
      The path leads up to the top of a small mountain.
      The area isn't very populated, so I don't encounter many people on my way up.

      I finally reach a small street, my house is at the end of it.
      There's a few more houses, maybe 12 or so and a water fountain in the middle of the street.
      For some reason I am attracted to the fountain, it is very beautiful, but I don't really know why.
      As I approach it I start to question my surroundings and quickly realize that I am dreaming.

      I am happy to have become lucid, but the feeling quickly vanishes.
      In front of the fountain I find a dead wolf. He seems to have died because of a deep wound on his neck.
      I feel odd. Seeing the dead wolf makes me kind of sad.

      It starts to rain. Has it ever rained in my dreams? Does it rain because I am sad?
      The sky starts clearing up and it stops raining, rays of light start poking through the clouds.
      A small bird emerges from the light and lands on the fountain, looking at the wolf.

      I have seen this bird before! It is the same as in the Dr. Who dream!
      The bird looks at me for a few seconds.
      Then he switches his attention back to the wolf.
      He spreads his tiny wings and they start glowing in all kinds of colors.
      Some glitter emitted from his wings lands on the wolf.

      The wolf comes back to life and looks at the bird. They exchange a few thoughts, the wolf is thankful that the bird saved his life.
      He runs away. I am amazed by what I just witnessed, but I still feel somewhat weird, although in a positive way now.
      The bird takes off and lands on the hand of a girl.
      I recognize her, It's Faye!
      She looks different than last time though, but her aura is clearly the same.
      She has long brown hair now and shimmering green eyes.

      "What have you learned from this experience?"

      I remember that WakingNomad has asked me this question a few times.

      "He's a phoenix..."
      "Yes, he is, so what does this mean?"
      "I don't know... what does it mean? We are in my dream bubble aren't we?"

      Faye gives me an affirming nod.
      She acts very mysteriously. Yuya sometimes does that as well.
      I kind of like it though, I've always been a fan of mystery.
      She wants me to keep thinking, I'm supposed to come to a conclusion.

      "So this phoenix, he is part of my imagination?"
      "A projection of your subconscious the people on your forum would say."

      I think this is the first time a DC has made a direct reference to DV.
      Faye talks about how in my dream bubble, everything that I don't actively create is a projection of my subconscious.
      I already knew that, and she knew that I did, but she's trying to make a point.

      "So where does this idea of a phoenix come from?"
      "That is the question. Knowing the question is half of the answer."

      I really like the way she is speaking, it is so mysterious, yet it is very clear that she is leading me onto the right path.
      I look at my left arm and spread my own wings, which I use to navigate the dream plane.
      I remembered correctly, the wings on my left arm do look exactly the same way as the wings of the phoenix.

      "When I use these wings to teleport, that is actually a phoenix ability."

      I say this more as a realization than a question.
      And after saying it I know that I am right.
      I can use these wings to move through the fabric of space and easily navigate the dream plane by doing so.
      I can also heal other beings, but the ability is far too complex for me to do anything major.
      I could never revive someone, not even a very simple being, such as an insect.
      The sheer amount of energy this would require is beyond my imagination.
      I remember that I have used these abilities many years ago in my dreams.
      My vision is blurry, I assume the dream is about to end, I feel like I should thank her before it does.

      "Thank you, I have indeed learned many things from this experience."

      I say this quite awkwardly, I am a bit shy.
      Faye approaches me and whispers into my ear.

      "I am your dream guide you know, this is what I do, maybe you should ask me for help more often..."
