    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. Worlds Collide

      , 02-15-2012 at 02:19 AM (Hyu's Adventures)
      It's been quite some time since my last DJ post.
      I'll try to be more active on DV again, and I'll probably post some of the dreams I had during my absence.

      Random music for no good reason:

      The day before this dream I had surgery on my foot.
      Nothing serious, but I still needed a massive bandage and pain meds for the healing process.
      This made it rather uncomfortable to sleep, and sure enough, after just ~6 hours of sleep I woke up.

      The pain wasn't bad as long as I didn't move... however that's exactly what I wanted to do.
      I must have slept in an awkward position because my left leg (where I've gotten surgery on) was very tired.
      I didn't want to move though, because I knew it would hurt.
      The pain meds were on my desk where I left them, out of reach without getting up.

      I just wanted to go back to sleep, but it just didn't seem to work.
      The strain on my left leg kept me awake, just barely... I kept drifting in and out of consciousness.
      This was coupled with random thoughts that didn't make much sense.

      I kept trying though, and after some time, in a brief moment of clarity, I noticed that I was feeling vibrations all over my body.
      I knew this feeling all too well, because it happens quite often when I attempt to WILD.
      I haven't done that in a while, but for some reason I thought that because of this I could now transition into a dream.
      (I wasn't really thinking clearly)

      I try to levitate out of bed as a means to separate my dream body from my physical body.
      At this point I can clearly feel the existence of both.
      It seems like the stronger the vibrations, the less I feel my physical body.
      Attempting to levitate seems safer to do, because I don't run the risk of moving my physical body.

      I slowly start to drift upwards.
      There is no more gravity and the blanket is gone.
      I land on my bed and start rubbing my hands in fear of loosing the dream.
      It is only then that I realize that I've just cheated my way into sleeping... sort of... well not really, but I'm asleep, that's all that counts.
      I check my foot and it's all normal. No bandages, nothing.

      It's rather dark. I was hoping rubbing my hands would fix this, but it didn't.
      I flick the light switch in my room, but nothing happens.
      Meh, would have been too easy.
      Afraid to see myself in bed I leave by jumping out of the window.
      (Seeing myself makes me uncomfortable and has woken me up in the past.)

      I land softly and walk into the street in the hopes of the dream being lit up by the streetlights.
      But it doesn't help.
      I don't want to wake up, I want to stay asleep as long as possible.
      This is why I'm afraid to try spinning, or use other techniques to change the scene... if I fail I could wake up.

      I rub my hands again.
      "Oh come-on, work already!"
      It doesn't.

      I try to make it rain with my mind, thinking it won't work because the dream is unstable. (dark)
      But for some reason it does.
      I feel the rain drops on my skin, and as the feeling becomes more intense, the dream finally becomes properly lit.

      (Rain has been an amazing tool to keep my dreams stable in the past. The constant feeling of raindrops keeps my senses focused in the dream)

      I decide to slowly walk through the street and see if I find something interesting.
      I'm too afraid to attempt to teleport somewhere else. If I mess it up and wake up there's no way I'll be able to fall back asleep.

      Suddenly, I realize that I have changed location.
      I am now in Germany, in front of a friends house.
      How did that happen?

      My friend C. comes out of the house.
      "Can't sleep either huh?"

      It's weird hearing him speak perfect English. We talk German with each-other in waking life.

      "What are you talking about? You're not making any sense, this is a dream."

      He looks confused but shrugs it off.

      "I have to show you something, follow me."

      I follow him into his room where he points at his tv.
      There's a newscast... something about another dimension merging with our's.
      It's rather confusing. It quickly becomes apparent that it's about the dream plane though.
      It is merging with the waking world.

      This confuses the hell out of me, I'm fully aware I'm dreaming, but the whole situation is built around being awake.
      Then I spot Faye on the couch. She makes me a sign to stay quiet, not to tell that I know about the dream plane.

      "Can you believe this? This is so weird! Do you have any idea what this is?"
      "Ehhh, haha, yeah... it is weird, isn't it?"

      Probably the most unconvincing thing I've said in my entire life.
      I wonder why Faye wants me to stay quiet about this...

      ... I am now at the location where the tv broadcast is occurring.
      It's in some sort of park, I don't think I know this place.
      There's some sort of spatial disturbance in the air, and I can see spirits from the dream plane trying to cross over.
      It's a rather surreal experience. (at this point I actually believe that this is really happening.)
      I try to spot Yuya on the other side in the hopes that she can cross over but I can't find her.

      My friend is there again, rambling a bunch of nonsense... that we're all going to die among other things.

      Spirits are now crossing over and materialize on our side. Some politicians have appeared and are greeting them,
      and welcoming them into our world.
      Other people are protesting the situation, waving signs with the word "Spirit" crossed out.

      "Faye!... What?"
      "Snap out of it!"

      The scene freezes, except for Faye and myself.
      She grabs my hand and drags me away.

      I realize that I drifted out of lucidity.

      "I thought you were trying to stay asleep, what the hell are you doing?"
      "Err... yeah. I nearly lost it there."
      " "nearly" huh? "

      We arrive at some sort of cafe and we stop at a table.
      Faye looks like she's about to scold me.

      "I know, I know... constant awareness."
      "That's right."
      "But it's difficult right now, I have an injury in the other life."

      A waiter brings us a coffee and Faye hands it to me.

      "Drink! This will help."

      I drink the coffee and it feels like the caffeine rushes directly into my head.
      I am now thinking clearly and my vision is perfectly fine even though it's still night.

      I walk down the street with Faye and we talk about a few things.
      She's trying to keep me asleep.
      After some time I realize a minor oddity.

      "So... technically I'm talking to myself right now eh?"
      "I've told you before, it's quite a bit more complicated than that."
      "That's quite an understatement. I know you've tried to explain it before, but I still don't really get it."
      "You have a good idea, that's enough."
      "But I want to know more."
      "You don't understand every detail of the universe either, yet it doesn't prevent you from living in it just fine."
      "It doesn't prevent me from trying to understand every last detail of it either."

      She smiles.

      The street abruptly ends. There's nothing but darkness behind it.
      I turn around. Darkness is catching up with us, there's maybe another 10 meters of street left.

      "End of the line Hyu."
      "Aww, I don't want to wake up."
      "It's alright, you've been asleep for a long time, it's nearly time to get up anyways."

      That makes me feel a lot better.

      "Bye bye, Hyunkell-san"
      I reply in a funny way:
      "Goodbye, dreamguide-o-saaan"

      She sticks her tongue out in a cute way and laughs.

      I wake up. It's been over 7 hours since I went to bed, so I decide to get up.
      To my surprise, moving my foot doesn't hurt nearly as a bad as I thought it would.
    2. Another encounter with the Succubus

      , 02-02-2011 at 04:13 AM (Hyu's Adventures)
      non dream - lucid - non lucid

      It's late in the evening, I'm super tired because I studied for an exam all day long.
      I can't think clearly anymore and take a break listening to "Two steps from hell".
      I lean my chair all the way back and close my eyes for a few minutes.
      I'm just really tired, I don't even think much.
      At some point I notice HI. I didn't even try to WILD, but I certainly didn't move either.
      I decide to just keep going, like I'm too tired to open my eyes and do something else.
      I don't try to visualize anything, I don't try to go somewhere specific...

      I feel odd, like I'm not alone in the room. I assume this is related to SP.
      But then I hear someone moving VERY close to me and it scares me quite a bit, even though I know I don't need to worry.
      Still, I'm uncomfortable and I open my eyes.
      Everything is wrong. My pc monitor is filled with void and the corners glow in a purple color.
      Even though everything on my desk seems to be where I left it, I cannot see the walls of my room.
      My desk is properly lit, but the further things are away from it, the darker they are.
      And then I see her, right to my left, a girl from e previous dream: Encounter with a Succubus
      She's wearing some sort of corset and long gloves, it's a rather seductive outfit.

      I do not feel any immediate danger so I decide to wait and see what happens.
      She pushes my chair back a bit and sits on my lap facing me.
      Her face is very close.
      She starts inhaling my energy. It moves slowly from my mouth into hers.
      I notice that the amount energy she's absorbing is ridiculously small though.
      It isn't dangerous whatsoever, she isn't hurting me.
      However, I do want answers.

      I put my arms around her, so she can't get away, and interrupt the energy transfer.

      "We meet again, young succubus."

      She's scared, but she doesn't try to escape.
      Her disguise vanishes. I can see small wings on her back now, and some sort of horns on her head. (Not the pointy devil's kind, more like animal horns)
      She's young, I'm guessing about 16-18, assuming she ages the same way we do.

      "I don't understand... why do you know?"
      "Because I'm a dreamer, obviously."
      "... but... even dreamers don't know..."
      "That you are a succubus?"
      "That I am a succubi, that I charm them... everything..."

      So I was right, she is a succubus... but what exactly is a succubus?
      I don't think she's actually trying to hurt me, so I keep my voice calm and try to keep the conversation going.

      "Why do you steal my energy, young one?"
      "What do you mean? ... I need it ..."
      "What for?"
      "To live? ... I don't understand... why would you not know..."

      She's about to cry, I believe she thinks that I'm about to kill her.
      I look deep into her eyes, feeling her thoughts to see if she's telling the truth.

      "Calm down. Explain to me what exactly it is you're doing.
      You steal energy because you need it to survive, but you seem to take very little?"
      "Of course!!! If I took more I could hurt people."
      "Wait... what? I thought you were a demon?"
      "That doesn't mean that I'm a bad person!
      Not all demons are evil!"


      She's being absolutely honest, I can feel it.
      I can sense that she's never hurt anyone.
      She cannot regenerate her own energy the way I do, so she needs to take small amounts from other people.
      The amount of energy she absorbs could never hurt anyone.
      I let her go.
      She is very surprised.

      "You're telling the truth, so I shall let you go.
      Next time instead of sneaking up on me, just ask alright?"
      "Yes... sorry... thank you..."

    3. Pregnant Girlfriend - Becoming a Father

      , 10-05-2010 at 10:17 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      Date: 04.10.2010
      Vividness: High
      Induction: WILD (WBTB)

      Real/Comment - Non Lucid - Lucid

      This is my second successful WILD. The problems I had last time persist, I get into SP very easily, but I have a very hard time moving on from there.
      I zoned in and out a lot. I often felt like I was about to enter a dream, there was a scene although it was not quite clear,
      but I had basic knowledge what it consisted of and which DCís would be there. This usually only lasted for a few seconds at most though.
      At one point my whole body started to tickle stronger and stronger by the second.

      Suddenly, my dream body was shot away at high speed, like a ball from a cannon.
      I couldn't see anything, but I could feel that I was falling ďback to earthĒ. Although I had no vision, I knew when to expect the impact,
      and I knew it wouldn't hurt. I was hoping very hard that I was finally entering my dream and that my vision would be restored, and so it was.

      After a rough landing, I found myself in the garden of an old neighbor of mine. (I used to live in that street over 10 years ago)
      The landing didnít hurt whatsoever. Since there was no doubt in my mind that I was dreaming I skipped the reality checks (I completely forgot they exist).
      I tried some stabilization techniques next. First I rubbed my hands together. The sensation was strong, but slightly different from real life.
      I started to move out of the garden, whilst touching everything I could find. I was very impressed how strong the sensation of touching things was.
      At one point I accidentally touched a bee that was sitting on a flower. It buzzed, but did not seem to care.

      I decided to go with the dream this time, and just see where it would lead me. Since I found myself in front of the house,
      I proceeded to the door and wanted to ring the bell, but some old guy already opened the door.

      At first he had no idea who I was, but that didnít prevent him from handing me a cup of champagne.
      I didnít know him either at first, but suddenly he seemed to hate me. My presence annoyed him so much that he just walked away.
      At this pointÖ for some reason, I realized I knew him for a long time, and I knew we werenít getting along.
      I drank the champagne, it tasted exactly like its real world counterpart; it was a good French one too.
      Since he left the door open, I entered the house and found a young girl just standing there.

      She was not the one I was looking for though; I was looking for her older sister: my pregnant girlfriend.
      The whole sensation was absolutely amazing. She was sitting on a couch, possibly looking at TV.
      She was immensely happy to see me, and she was very cute. Her belly clearly showed that she was pregnant, although it wasnít very big yet.
      The love I felt for the women and my future child at that moment was so strong and so impressive.
      I couldn't imagine living without this girl or my soon to be born child.
      We gave each other a long hug and decided to go for a walk outside. Unfortunately, and very suddenly...

      I felt a "click" in my body, like flicking a light switch, something had changed...
      I was back in my real body, in SP, and I could no longer move my dream body. The dream started to fade away.
      I wanted to try spinning to prolong the dream, but I couldnít since I was stuck in my real body, and I couldnít move due to SP.

      I decided to end the SP and take notes of the dream as long as I was still able to remember it clearly.
      It is only then I realized how impressive that dream really was.
      Right now, having a child would be absolutely horrible for me.
      I donít really get along with young children and I have no interest whatsoever in having a child right now.

      However, in the dream, I was clearly able to experience what it would feel like if I wanted to have a child and possibly get married, and I enjoyed it a lot.
      This is the first time I knowingly had "false memories", I couldn't imagine that they would be so strong.
      I was quite sad that the dream had ended early, but thought that Iíd be looking forward to experience other sensations and emotions that I am currently unable to have in real life.
