    1. Lucid? dild

      , 06-11-2018 at 12:55 PM (Turquoise Dreams)
      I'm waking up a lot last few nights. So I thought maybe I'll get a lucid out of it.

      I'm in something looking like a doctors office. But less formal. Maybe like some people getting together and one of them would do procedures. Like a tupperware party or something.

      Some people are half naked. Person who does the procedures is kinda looking at me, if I want it done as well. But I'm just waiting for someone.

      I look in the large mirror. I'm wearing a black t-shirt. I look at my face closely and I'm surprised that I don't see eyes. Then I look closer and I see that they are shut tight. I wonder how I see with eyes closed. I open them and I can see the same clear. That's when I become lucid. I look at the person and I'm thinking if I should go with the dream plot or do something else. I kinda want to see where will the dream take it next. As I'm thinking that, I feel my lucidity slipping and I wish it didn't.

    2. Random DILD; Badass subC

      , 01-12-2018 at 05:13 AM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Few days ago. So happy to remember an awesome dream again. 3 in one night, in fact.

      1. My subC is such a cool BADASS

      I'm in a car. There is some presence. It flies out and is flying at me towards the back window. I remember my thoughts from daytime, that you have to stand up for yourself. Don't let anybody bully you or scare you, or enslave you in any way.

      (I had to watch Insidious and there was a scene where a demon had some souls enslaved, and another soul fought and beat his ass. And I remember thinking that that's how you have to approach situations in dreams.)

      So as it was flying at me, about to scream at me to scare me, I punched it square in the chest, expecting to be hit back far harder. But no. No retaliation. So I hit it again and kept punching until I was satisfied that the danger is over.

      2. Cigar and a DILD
      Very low lucidity. Suddenly I just have more awareness and I'm "thinking". There is a cigar in front of me on the table. Not even a whole one. I think "why not". I don't smoke and never had, but I figured what a better place to try, haha. So I light it up and take a puff. We keep passing it between me and my friend, noticing how the smoke tastes and such. I'm not hating it, but I don't like it either.

      When we are done, I decide to go for a flight. I take off and hover over the area, flying like a hummingbird. Horizontal when flying, vertical when hovering. I am SO HAPPY to be flying again. The feeling is unmistakable and out of this world elating. I feel good from this for next 2 days.

      3. VR reality
      Somebody has VR goggles. I ask if I can try them, then I keep borrowing them when not in use. I put it on and I'm on a dusty walking path somewhere high in Andes. Peru comes to mind. I don't think it's in the past, but I know it had been used by Incas.

      When I look through the goggles, I can see the scenery, but also the edges of the goggles. Like when you put on a snorkeling mask. But after few seconds, I kinda lean forward, the goggles disappear and I'm fully immersed in the scenery. I walk up to the edge of the precipice by the wooden handrail and expect to be able to see it only from the distance, since I know I'm not really there. But the scenery comes closer to me and any divide between me and the scene disappears. Just like when I'm WILDing and at first I'm just looking inside the dream from the outside (level of my eyes), then I get transported inside, sucked in, and I'm in the middle of it, in 3D environment. It was awesome to realize all this.

      We come up on some orphanage, right there on the path. I tell them to hang on, and I return to my "base" and I rummage through the food supplies, gathering up everything I can find to take it back to the kids. It takes a long time, and other things happen. Long and detailed.

      I woke up very happy from all these dreams. This is what I call interesting dreams. THANK YOU, SUBC <3

    4. DILD - talking to a DC

      , 05-20-2016 at 02:28 AM (Turquoise Dreams)

      Bed at 11pm. Alarm at 6:15 to go to a 8am gig at my second job, but woke up from a DILD at 5am.

      I'm in a room and everything has green tint to it. I wonder out loud "why is everything green"? And I answer to myself with big grin "Because it's a dream".

      Scene changes and now I'm walking down a busy street. I quickly decide I finally want to talk to a DC and I turn to a guy walking next to me with a question "Whats your name?". He gets confused and he clearly has no idea, all he manages is "uhmmm and errrr". I think to myself I should find a DC who is not just in my mind but who can think for himself.

    5. Lencois Sand dune lakes in Brasil

      , 02-01-2016 at 07:13 PM (Turquoise Dreams)

      Last night shift from 5-10pm

      Slept from 2am-9am

      [Yesterday I read a book about Just Paying attention. So I was doing it most of the day, trying to keep my attention on what I was doing. For ex. I was carrying a box, so I would say: I'm looking at my hands, I have black gloves on, I have a box, I'm walking, looking around, there are people, are these DCs, HI DC!, ... and just basically noticing things around me and acknowledging them.]

      Woke up with memory of a DILD.

      I am with some people when I realize I should be dreaming and lucid. I count my fingers but I decide I'm not dreaming. Immediately after that I KNOW I am ALWAYS dreaming and lucid so I recount.

      I count one by one, all the way to 12 on my left hand, to make a show for those people. I'm amazed, because every one of my fingers is dressed in pyjamas. Light blue with some toys and teddies like a baby's soft flanel pyjama. When I come to 12, people are also amazed.

      I walk to the window and tell them "Now I'm gonna do what I always do when lucid. I'm going for a flight". And I jump out the window.

      I'm flying superman style (I normally fly in standing up position, kinda like a hummingbird) over some sand. I realize I wanted to see the Lencois Sand Dunes in Brazil.

      So I bank left and there they are.

      One lake is more beautiful than the other. All different colors and shapes.

      Turqoise, green, blue. I can hear myself go "uuuuuu" and "aaaah" and I'm surprised and amazed at such beauty.

      Little further down, also in sand dunes are some low, elongated openings to the underground. It seem to me that those are the ends of lava tubes where lava was coming out from. Not sure why, because they don't look like it. (I have been to a real one on the Big Island of Hawaii).

      After all this I write down the 12 fingers, the lakes and I feel especially important part is how I realized that I am ALWAYS DREAMING. I knew I'm writing this down in a dream but I was hoping it will help me remember after I wake up. (This is second time I done this)
    6. Pink bunny, pink bunny, what do you see?

      , 05-26-2015 at 06:48 AM (Turquoise Dreams)

      bed 11:20 am - 9:45pm with 3 or so potty breaks

      First time in a while I remember dreams from the whole time I was asleep.

      I'm walking on a street and I see a pink bunny, no fur, walking on his front legs, upside down. I stop in my track and stare at him. He asks me something like "what you looking at?" and I say "are you for real?". He just looks at me as it is for me to figure it out. I ask him "am I dreaming?" and I look at my hands. I say "yes, I am dreaming" and I remember how just that night before bed I wanted to get lucid.

      I don't remember any strong happiness. But I didn't have that in some of my later DILDs either. So I immediatelly leave the scene and start climbing up on the outside of a house. It's like from fairy tales. Lots of wooden design on the house so it's easy to find a foothold and grab something with hands. I easily climb to the top.

      I look to another house adjacent to this one. That one is modern, concrete and glass. I stick my head in the open window and say :hello, anybody home?" while I know they are home. I look down and I'm 3 stories high, so I know it will startle them. I start talking about how I like their light colored furniture that has some dark streaks in it. They tell me they could pick that one on one with pink streaks, but I lose interest and leave.

      Not sure if still lucid here, probobly not. But me and my dad are building a flying machine out of kitchen chairs. Just attaching 2 behind each other, powered by dream power. I think we actually take it for a spin, or I just describe to him how it would be to be flying.

      NEXT dream
      I'm with many people. One of them is my friend from school, with some elements from Ophelia. I'm asking her if she still has the "wow" moment when she gets lucid, and she says yes. I'm still trying to figure out if I the previous dream was lucid. We talk about lucids for a while. Someone is giving a lecture while we sit at the tables and talk some more.

      There were more dreams, but I only commited these to memory.

    7. DILD, DEILD, OpheliaBlue

      , 12-05-2014 at 06:59 AM (Turquoise Dreams)

      Last night bed around 9 coz soming down with something.

      Woken up at 3am, spent 30 min on comp, then bed. Woke up at 5:30 from LDs.

      Not sure how I got lucid, if WILD or DILD, but proly DILD. Next thing I know, I'm walking down the street, happy as can be and singing and old song, one of my favorites. I realize I can sing nice and loud so I start really singing from top of my lungs. It feels GREAT. I have the lyrics right and I carry a tune.

      The dream fades, I see my hands and I realize I'm still dreaming, because a thought crosses my mind that I always am. No transition.

      I'm ourside, between 2 buildings. I want to fly up, but there are boards like a scaffolding. I'm pushing them aside and telling myself its easy.

      I'm on the street again I think and I manage half of the same song, again happy as fuq, before dream fades.

      Not sure if still lucid here or not, proly kinda aware but not lucid. So I go look for OpheliaBlue which I know she is in that corridor. I find her and I'm all excited telling her that I just had a DILD and a DEILD.

      Woke up ecstatic.

      Why can I sing in dreams but not IWL?

    8. Morning DILD

      , 05-19-2013 at 02:53 PM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Sunday 5/19/13

      Last night bed 11:30pm - 5:50am

      Had some dreams before. I think related to Burned Notice Marathon I was watching IWL.

      Got up to potty after 4am. Woke up from a long and detailed non-lucid and DILD at 5:50 am.

      Non-lucid DR: I'm sleeping in my room in NZ. I can hear through the wall some girls talking shit about me. Taunting me. I know they don't live there. As I ley there, I can see my balcony through the courtains. It's dark outside. We have a common balcony with the neighbour, but it's separated by a wall. Now I see some movement at the separator. At that moment, I can feel her on my back and hear her. I ask her how she got there and try to squirm away. The touch on my back is uncomfortable.

      Later on I walk over to the neighbor. Now it's not an apartment anymore, but a huge, 2 story house. Very bright, lots of light, white walls. I want to talk to the lady, but we are expecting intruders. She arms the alarm so we can hear them come. I look for weapons and decide on some fireplace tools.

      I'm tryin to secure the sliding door. I look outside, and there is a guy charging up the hill towards us. But a goat that's grazing there attacks him. He runs away.

      Then the girls are coming up the stairs and I stand at the top waiting for them. As soon as I see the first one, I start dropping chairs at them. A little boy is there and I'm sending him away from danger, but he wants to help.

      DILD: Now I'm someplace else. Looks like a tiny factory control room. I'm telling someone that if I can do something, I will get lucid. I start to lift off and I get lucid.

      I immediatelly turn left on the metal corridor and walk out the door. I stand on top of the exterior metal stairway, that goes on the side of a huge, barn shaped metal building. I grip the metal rail and note how cold and smooth it is. I exlaim 'how beautiful". Lady next to me asks "really?". I keep touching the rail and I lean over to touch the wall to stabilize, but i don't want to think about it too much.

      To my left are some sheep in a pen, all huddled together. Grass is nice and green and I'm thinking I'm in Australia or New Zealand. I ask "where is the ocean?" and look in the direction behind the building. There it is. Dark blue waves breaking on the beach.

      I walk down the long stairs. I keep walking and Halle Berry walks by pushing a stroller. There are three guys that look like they are down on their luck. I ask them "was that hally berry?" and one of them says "nope, it was [?]. I don't remember the name, but he repeated it a few times.

      Guys are sitting underneath a tarp. Like a big tent, but it has only the roof. Behind them is a gift shop full of slovak hockey shirts and other slovak mamorabilia. I hear Olympic anthem played in the distance, in the large building. I ask the shopkeeper "olympic games?"

      I keep walking (decided to walk and not fly) on the dirt and patchy grass road. I end up in some town. I think it's NZ, but only because of the layout and I can orient myself. But houses are completely different. Almost alien like. Small, crammed next to each other, no space between them. Lots of people on the street. They seem to be shorter in average.

      I look to my left and I see a synagogue. It's dark and ominous. Behing it is a humongous memorial statue. It scares me, it's so huge. I look up and it goes high to the sky.

      I remember that I rarely look ap to the skies in LDs. So I look up, expecting to see something enexpected, something cool. But all there is are some white clouds on otherwise clear skies. I start walking to the right. I keep saying "my guide, if you are present, I'm asking for your help. Only entities with my or above my level of development may be here". (Interesting, that I remembered to call my guide and to remember the phrase of protection from WL) (I decided it's time to meet my guide. Not the dream guide, but the spirit guide. What I forgot, was that you don't call him directly. I should have just have a thought "it would be nice to have help with... But I didn't really needed help. I want to ask for help in learning to navigate in the astral, so I remember that for next time)

      As I'm walking, I feel something big coming from ahead, but I can't see because of the bend in the road. But the small man with beards start closing their small wooden doors. I try to walk into one for protection, but too late. The door is shut. I make a step back to another door, which I feel is closing too. But as I turn and walk up the 3 small cement steps, I see that it's opened. There is a string from door to the wall. I guess a pull-string for closing the door. Now the owner is there. Small guy. Can't see his face clearly, but when he walks inside through second door, I see something grey on side of his face. I thought its a beard, but it looks more like some desease.

      I sit down right behind the door, in a small and narrow ante-room. The guys goes inside the house. The doors are all wooden, arched at the top.

      Suddenly I'm inside. It looks guite modern. I sit on a chair in front of a coffee table. The guy is opposite to me. He eats chinese takeout. What he doesn't finishes, he pushes over to my plate, even when I protest. I try to speak chinese to him and I'm not sure if he understands me. But after dinner he speaks to me in my language, but I have no idea which one is it. Feels like it was some kind of a test, since he first didn't speak to me and pretended not to speak my language.

      I tried for a DEILD, but nothing happened. Didn't really wanna get up to write this down, but I'm glad I did.

      Everything was very clear, not foggy at all.

      Afternoon nap WILD
      I'm coming in and out of sleep. I'm seeing this very, very colorful ice rink. Yellows and reds and whites. Or maybe it's a basketball court, like Lakers. it's coming closer to me and I say "I am there". I was almost lucid even before I said it, but lost it all as soon as I approached.

      non-lucid , lucid
    9. DILD long

      , 04-12-2013 at 08:44 PM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Friday, 4/12/13

      I woke up at 6:30 am and went back for a nap at 8am.

      I was going to WILD, but for some reason, I didn't get any indication of it.

      Turned to my left side and fell asleep. When I woke up, I was sure I had a DILD, but didn't get uo, went back to sleep. Next time I woke up, I wasn't so sure about DILD anymore. Until I started to write down snippets. I was trying to recall, if I got any surprise or happiness when I realized I'm lucid, but I didn't remember any. Until now. Now I clearly remember telling someone "ok, I'll count my fingers, but it's pointless, I'm not dreaming". Then I counted 6-7 fingers on my left hand. I was completely surprised. I counted again and again, in awe, showing someone how many fingers I have. So DILD is confirmed.

      Snippets for DILD and non-lucids mixed in my memory:

      - I walked into my parents house. My dad had my mom's haircut and he was blond. With thin wire glasses. (just now I realized, he resembled the russian spy from The Americans show in his blond wig). My room looked the same way I had it when I was a child. I discovered, that my closet is haunted.

      - My brother with his wife and child are visiting. I want to know when they leave, so I can go out and come back before they leave.

      - I'm flying in controlled flight. Happy.

      - I'm taking a cab home. 2 other passengers. We go by my house and I want to get out, but cabbie says it has to be in order we got in. So we go to two other places first. I decide not to give him a tip.

      - I walk into a room and it's an interrogation room. A guy is behind a desk. (I was watching the show Revolution before bed)

      - I'm escaping through the roof, but each time I break through a layer, there is another, different one behind it.

      - I'm diving into a lake, wanting to swim in tropical sea. Water is dark and dirty, like a polluted river. I'm trying to make it brighter and it's getting brighter and I'm starting to see gravel on the bottom.

      I suspect there was more, but don't remember it.
    10. DILD + 5 DEILDS on one night

      , 04-01-2012 at 06:16 PM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Saturday 3/31/12 5-HTP at 10:15pm, bed at 11:50pm didn't practice awareness
      DR 3:47
      WBTB 3:47 - 4:21 didn't fall asleep till 5:20 (cat going potty)
      Woke up at 7:15 from DILD + 5 DEILDs Each about 5min long
      For WBTB WILD I visualize being at beer pub with mom, dad, and two others. I recall the tables, people, green leaves on a tree, glasses with beer.
      Then I fall asleep and have a DILD.
      At home on RD10. I'm hugging and kissing my parents. My dad's cheek has a 5o'clock shadow. We are in a hallway, light are on. Then I'm on front balcony looking out (or maybe through my brothers room window). It's at night and everything is shining under moonlight, as if it was covered by ice. (EDIT: I thught for long time what it reminds me of, and I figured it out today - it has colors, beauty and misticism of Hyu's avatar pic.) I trick my mind into making everything more focused by saying 'Look how is everything so detailed', although it wasn't. In that moment it gets very vivid and focused in shades of black, grey and blue, shiny with ice surface. beautiful.
      I'm on my balcony. It's daytime. So crisp and focused, I think it's WL. I do a bunch of RCs. First time I do 'nose plug' RC, although I have never practiced it. I can breathe. But I'm not 100% sure. Doesn't stop me from jumping off the balcony to fly.
      Not sure if this is the same LD or a separate one. - I'm on balcony to a street. I know that in my previous LD was daytime and I wonder, why is it night. I say it and in little while the sun is coming up. I'm trying to go to the moon from the backyard. I find it on the skies and take aim. I think I wake up.
      DEILD 1
      I'm on a sidewalk of a major city. I see tall modern buildings on the left. Bunch of DCs. I ask two of them, one man and then one woman 'Excuse me mam, sir, what is this town, err, city?' I'm so nervous talking, I fumble with words. One of them says Philadelphia.
      A bus pulls up to the sidewalk. I'm so scared as it's turning towards us, because its huge, like 3 buses on top of each other. Menacing, white metal, heavy looking. I walk on a sidewalk among lots of DCs. From the left is an exit from a bus depot? Big machines are coming out of there from behind big black rubber flaps, so you don't see something is coming until you are close to it. I'm scared to walk by, so I don't get run over.
      Note sure if this is the same LD or another one. >> I'm in a building. Me and another person or two plus our guide are hovering on top of some very tall furniture - couple of stories high. He is shoving us this so we can decide, what kind of a tour we want. I see a window, open it, pull away the screen and fly out. I feel so free. Not sure if it was here, but at one point I jumped off a tall building although I was not sure, that I can fly. Just inches from sidewalk my fall changed to a glide above ground.
      ***I wake up, (was I sleeping on my back and right shoulder) and remember not to move. I wait to enter another LD.
      DEILD 2
      I'm on a river bank. Decide to swim across. Water is yellowish. Someone else is in the water. I get out on other side. There is a area fenced off by chain link fence. Some bikers are watching two of them fight, as if in a rink. I decide to try my powers and take the place of one guy to fight the bigger one. The ground is slippery from spilled beer. I think they are pouring beer at each other. I ask where is my beer. One of them brings two big, classical beer glasses filled with what looks like lager. But he takes a drink from them so I say to forget it. I don't know how to fight this guy. >> I'm in a building/shack next to this fight field. I ask a cute biker if he wants to have sx. He says sure and we start to undress. We are almost there, but I wake up.
      DEILD 3
      I'm back with the biker. He doesn't want to go on, because he doesn't want to wake up again. I walk over to a group of 2-3 bikers, one is a cop in blue uniform and tell them I just broke up with my boyfriend, if they want to continue where he left off. Things start to happen, but I wake up again.
      DEILD 4
      I'm flying inside the museum. Lots of rooms and people. I realized a few moments past by and suddenly everything is focused. I realize, this is what people mean about dream getting focused after a minute or two. Looking for a window to get out, but can't find any. I realize, I can get out by getting lucid by looking at something moving towards me. I find a boy sitting on a floor playing with a train. I sit down and we pass the train between us, while I stare at it when it's coming towards me.
      DEILD 5
      I'm hovering over a street with other DCs. I ask out loud to see my grandma. One DC separates from others and flies to me. She is smiling, but her face is changing from a mummy to a girl of maybe 20 years of age. I ask her if it's really her and she assures me yes. But I'm pretty sure it's not.

      ***In one of the LDs I was able to only whisper. Rest of them I was shouting***
      ***In one of the LDs I signed my full name without any problem and then was able to read it***
      ***In most of them, I kept saying to myself loud 'I'm dreaming' to keep myself aware***
      ***First time 'nose plug' RC. Feels great to breathe through pinched nose.***

      Each transition - when woke up from LD - was the most awesome part of the whole thing. I realized, I can get a headrush by looking at something moving towards me and then tilting my head forward or back. (This head tilt is recurring thing from couple weeks ago, when I realized in regular dream, that I can get lucid this way.)
      So I looked at the street hoping for a car to come by - and it did, looking at a toy train when playing with a boy, looking at starfield in hyperspace on TV. When this field was going sideways, I made it change direction so it flies at me. Also was able to recall smell from previous LD to help induce another one.

    11. 2 DILDs - through kitchen sliding door and beer pub (5-HTP)

      , 03-19-2012 at 06:07 AM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Thursday, 3/15/12 5-HTP 11:15pm

      I slept from 12-4:55 without waking up.
      WBTB 4:55 - 5:34
      DILD 1 at 6:56am
      I'm at home in NZ. Getting ready to sleep in a bed in living room, where my parents are still watching TV. I realize I'm sleepy and should go to sleep. I'm reading a book about LDing. As I'm closing the book, I see, that the last pages (30) are all drawings and pictures of dreams and how to draw dreams. There is a picture of an old fashion sail ship (like pirate ship) in different stages of drawing - I guess it shows you in steps how to draw it.
      Then my dad pokes his head in the door and yells at me for reading by insufficient light. I look at my lamp and seems fine to me. He is putting on a coat and so he can go to help a neighbor. I ask him, when was the last time, he had something nice to tell me.
      I fall asleep and dreaming of being in the kitchen by the glass door to the balcony, talking to dad. I decide to walk through the glass door and I do so. Here I realize, I'm dreaming. I jump up on the railing and yell at my dad, who followed me outside. I yell: 'Look at me'. He looks, but I yell again. This time I can tell by his expression, that he sees me as a spirit in a lucid dream. I fly off. There are some tall trees and I decide to stabilize by looking at their leaves. Having little trouble with controlling my flight, trying to grab on the branches, but give up. Building right behind the trees is a church. I see a smoke rising as if from a cigarette through the open window. I decide to not go there. I turn around and float through the street. In panic I realize, I don't know what to do. I decide to fly higher and see where I'm. I see the city below me, at night, with streetlights on and also some windows are lit. In the distance, I think I recognize the Big Ben. London it is

    12. Maze to shifting landscape - Lucid End

      , 10-21-2011 at 07:08 AM (Turquoise Dreams)
      Regular Lucid dreamsigns
      I was commuting from work to shopping center, when front tire of my scooter got a flat. So I was walking around this typical California style shopping center with stores lining a big, square shaped parking lot, looking for a tire repair shop. Sometimes I took a shortcut through some nightmarish buildings, where bad things were waiting for me. I was throwing sleeping grenades at bad things so they don't wake up and attack me from by back. I tried to imagine the smoke from the grenades, but no joy. So I backed out from these buildings and continued my search for a tire shop. I met two former classmates, that were not willing to give me a ride and a really rude sales person in a shop.

      Then I find myself in a huge 1-story hangar-type building. There are thousands of people - looks to me like we are all kids, maybe 15 years old. There are exits on one side of the hangar, so we form lines to exits. But when we get to exits, they are actually corridors like a maze, that if we do it right, will lead us out of this place, where I felt we were not safe. We follow the kids in front of us but loose site of them. Now we don't know how to get out.

      Finally we come to this door. Look out the window and see some grassy landscape. But the view outside starts to move to the right and our landscape is now lined up with an exit to the right of us. In front of us is a wet landscape with mud, lots of wood piled up. We exit and approach what looks like remnants of a firefight. Burned out car and such. Right there is a building that looks like a barn and it doesn't have a front wall. Inside is light up by a lamp and there are military type rucksacks and from the ceiling hangs a sigh that says "Your Employer" and some red and blue military badge. From this I understand, that my group of people were put in this dream scenario, where we are supposed to act out the scenario for someone's amusement.

      I see in a distance group of fighters, their uniforms look British, but not modern. Maybe from era when they were in India. They are coming closer to us and we start looking for weapons to protect ourselves from them. There is a bunch of weapons on the ground. I pick a sturdy looking sword and something heavy to hit with. Then they come to us and we realize, that we are the new guys for their unit, the replacements. I suddenly realize, that This is a dream. I look at my left hand, it's all grey and my middle finger is much longer than it should be. I try to make it even longer and it stretches out to more than 10 feet. I start to touch my clothes and leg of a soldier to stabilize the dream. I yell stabilize lucidity, increase clarity. It's getting brighter, like at sunrise, but clarity is not much better. Then my mom wakes me up IRL.

    13. Lucid #2 (but only half way there)

      , 10-10-2011 at 04:17 AM (Turquoise Dreams)
      [Woke up after 6 1/2 hours of sleep (8pm-2.30am, stayed up on PC about 20 min, went back to bed, thought about LDing, meteor shower and my upcoming class reunion, did some "Am I dreaming" and looking at my hand and saying my mantras. Fell asleep shortly after 4am). Woke up immediately after getting way to LD at 4.45am].

      It's at night and I'm at my class reunion. I'm talking to my friends for a little while. Then I'm in adjacent room with big wall full of windows. Suddenly I see a huge bolide streaking through the skies from right to left. It's beautiful. I see some hills on the left and I know if I don't get higher, I will loose this meteorite behind the hill. Suddenly I feel as I was on a see-saw. I'm slowly lifting in the air without any effort and slowly coming back to ground. I do this couple of times. Then instead of coming back down, I keep going higher. Feels good but I'm surprised and I look up asking myself "wow, how high is this ceiling?". "I'm dreaming". My hand comes into view and looks almost normal, except mi middle finger is little longer than it should be. I realize that from this point it could go either way - turn lucid or continuing with regular dream. So I start willing my finger to stretch longer while repeating to myself "I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming." I'm still high all the way to the ceiling.
      I get scared of the dark and wake myself up. Man, I wish I wasn't such a scaredy-cat.

    14. My first LD

      , 10-03-2011 at 08:38 PM (Turquoise Dreams)
      [MILD induced DILD]
      It was late evening, dark. I was with another person (male) and 2 kids on a shore of a long lake, with small lit-up houses/shops on the right. (In the morning I realized it reminded me of a shoreline of Avalon on Catalina Island in California, where ocean is to your left, there is a walkway with simple guardrail and shops/houses right across the street on the right side).

      We were all dressed in pants, t-shirts and windbreakers. We decided to go to an evening outdoor concert. I realized that it's colder than we thought and I had to go to get some more clothes. So I started walking by the handrail towards the houses on the other side of the lake, when I decided to fly there. I hopped up on the guardrail and jumped up and flew quite fast over the lake, with arms spread out, like a Superman.

      (Now, I did fly in my dreams quite often, but always with trouble, never been able to fly high, mostly just climb on a tree and flap my arms really hard, or jump in the air couple times while flapping my arms like a madman and take a flight, but only few feet of the ground).

      In a middle of the lake I thought to myself "This would be great time to have a dream". Two things happened at the same time. I got a very strong feeling emanating from my abdomen area, something like great joy and I KNEW that Lucid Dream is coming, and my right hand lifted in front of me. It was all distorted, fingers like waves, flat, kinda like geckos toes, and seemed to be more of them than five. This view of my hand freaked me out a little bit.

      I asked myself if I'm dreaming and with grin from ear to ear I answered yes. I forgot all about getting clothes and thought about what to do now that I'm lucid. I figured let's fly someplace.
      (I love flying dreams.) Started flying around but everything was dark. Got kinda disappointed and woke up.

      [Went to bed around 12.45am, woke up from a dream at 2.53am.
      Before bed, I read for couple hours about LD, practiced nose pinch and finger through palm RC and saying that "Next time I dream, I will RC and realize I'm dreaming".

      Didn't really practice the looking at the hand and counting fingers RC, just a few times, much less than other RCs. But when in bed, I did my mantra and looked at my hand and asked myself if I'm dreaming as I was falling asleep for about 15 minutes. And yet, the hand RC showed up and got me lucid.]
