    1. Antelope Canyon

      by , 05-11-2016 at 10:42 PM

      I was going to Antelope Canyon with my friend M. I had driven us there and now we were waiting for our tour guide. Suddenly we see V. She tells us she had just gotten off a tour but wanted to come on our tour with us. I looked at M to see how she would react. I knew she and V had an unspoken competition going on for the number of times going through Antelope Canyon among other things. M was keeping a straight face so I couldn't tell what she was thinking.

      Suddenly the tour guide came. I realized that I hadn't put my hiking boots on. I also had a pile of things that needed to go back in the car. I didn't want to keep everyone waiting, so I told them to go on and I would catch up. I quickly got my boots on and took the stuff to the car and locked it. As I headed to find the others I noticed that I had left another pile of things I needed to put in the car. I picked them up and went back to the car...only to find I had locked the keys in the car. What would I do now. I couldn't take all this stuff with me on the hike. But I also couldn't leave it behind unprotected.

      I finally found that one of the car doors hadn't shut all the way, so I was able to get in and get my keys and lock it again. I rushed off to find my friends.

      Typical dream problems...
    2. Eight Dreams

      by , 04-21-2016 at 08:44 PM
      I had a bunch of dreams last night. The most I have remembered in a while. I think it really helps that I told myself the night before that I needed to remember them so I could write them in my Dream Journal. None of them were particularly long or vivid. But I'm glad I remembered what I did.

      Dream 1:

      I was in my old childhood neighborhood. I saw a nearby house (one East of the school) had burned down. Then as I watched I saw a big truck some barreling down the street and smash in to the house next to it. It was quite shocking I hoped the people inside were okay since the truck took about a third of the house down.

      Later I am in the house next to the two that had been destroyed. I am with a former roommate Bonna and a few freinds. I told them I had a really bad feeling about staying in this house. I was sure that this house was next to be destroyed. I finally convinced them to evacuate. It was then like a treehouse because we were climbing down a ladder. I'm pretty sure that I noticed a fire in the house as soon as were were down.

      [This was inspired because I had looked up my old neighborhood on Google maps before bed.]

      Dream 2:

      I was walking down the street in a neighborhood near the church I went to growing up in LA. I suddenly realized that I could fly. I don't think I was lucid, yet some of my actions were similar to things I do while lucid. I flew slowly straight up in the air. I started to have trouble getting very high. I knew my trick for flying was to not push myself higher, but to make the scenery move around me. So I focused on the scenery getting lower and lower around me, and I saw that I was getting quite high. But then I found myself under some power lines. I've heard that this is a problem for some lucid dreamers, but I've only had this happen once before. I realized that I was very close to the energized lines. I could hear a buzz and feel my hair start to stand up on my head and arms.

      [This was also inspired because I had looked up my old neighborhood on Google maps before bed.]

      Dream 3:

      I don't remember how this dream started but I found myself in a large room. I had no pants on. I think I was doing laundry. But then these guys started coming into the room to play video games. I think Kasey, Daniel, and David were there. I tried to get my pants on quickly before they noticed. I should have gotten lucid on this one.

      Dream 4:

      I was in a Japanese store buying what was called "noodles" but it looked more like a crumbly cake. The Japanese man who ran the store asked if I were traveling. I said, No, I was local.

      Dream 5:

      I went in this large kitchen. I was barefooted. I noticed something on the ground right in front of the fridge. As I looked closer I saw that someone had stepped on a tarantula. Its body had been squished, but it was still alive and trying to walk and pull it's mangled body with it. it was a horrible sight. There was a huge amount of white paste-like guts coming out the back of the spider. I wanted to kill it and put it out of its misery, but I had no shoes on and couldn't step on it. But I didn't know if I could have anyway.

      [This was inspired by an incident that happened earlier that day where I found a big black widow and tried to kill it with a shovel. I only hit it's body the first time and had to give it a second whack. Hate when that happens.]

      Dream 6:

      I was trying to sleep. I realized that my bed was in a crowded mall or airport. I was in a smaller room that was just off the main area, but the head of my bed was right were the opening of the room connected. It gave me a weird feeling to have all these strangers walking within a few feet of my head. I thought of trying to move my bed further into the room so I wouldn't be as close. But then I started hearing what I thought was hypnagogic audio hallucinations. I could hear a man's voice clearly talking in my head. I remembered the times that I had been able to write down some of those weird things that were said in hallucinations in the past. I wanted to start writing down what I was hearing. I carefully found a pencil and paper without waking myself up completely. I started to write down what the man was still saying in my head. I no longer remember what was being said.

      Dream 7:

      I was starting a hike with friends. I realized that I wasn't as prepared as I thought. I didn't have on my hiking boots. I had on sandals with a pair of socks. I tried to remember where we were hiking. This could work if we were hiking through water.

      Dream 8:

      I was sitting with my family. My dad (who passed away many years ago) was there talking to the family. I remember feeling happy about this, but at the time I didn't realize why.
    3. Dream about (Almost) Shared Dreaming....and Other Dreams

      by , 08-24-2015 at 05:11 PM
      I did have some interesting dreams last night--which I will record in an attempt to make up for dropping the ball while traveling. In one dream I was talking to someone about lucid dreaming. In a way those are frustrating to wake up from, because there I was discussing lucidity....and never becoming lucid.

      In the dream I was at some sort of "natural living" convention. I was in a discussion group that started out talking about eating a healthy raw vegan diet. A husband and wife lead the discussion. Then it went on to how we should change our ideas of what a bedroom looks like. Instead of sleeping on a flat mattress we needed to create these burrows to sleep in. That idea fascinated me, and I asked a few questions about how to make that happen.

      Then the discussion turned to dreaming. Lucid Dreaming. The lady started sharing a lucid dream she had recently had. She talked about how she first went through a wall, and then she made a certain object come to life. And then she said something else she did (which I no longer remember). As I listened to her dream I realized that I had had a lucid dream where I went though the same actions--in the same order. I was amazed. I raised my hand and asked her, "Did you do this next...and this next?" And she was surprised and said, "Yes."

      I said, "Wow, we're having the same dreams. It's almost like a shared dreaming experience, but without both of us being there in the dream."

      We talked about it some more and decided to do some experiments to see if we could continue this and take it to the next level.

      I also had a dream about meeting up with an old high school friend Mark and going on this long backpacking trip. The dream took place the night before we left. We were still getting everything ready and hoping we could get some sleep before the big day. It seems like my mom was there part of the time.

      Then (and I don't know if this is connected to the previous dream), I was in the mountains. I had a small private helicopter and was flying from peak to peak and exploring (the obviously lazy way).

      In another dream I was with my friend (who in real life just had a baby on Saturday), and I think I was helping with the baby. I don't remember a lot from this dream.
    4. Singing to the Anasazi

      by , 05-30-2014 at 10:39 PM

      I was hiking with Susan E and Marsha in Coyote Gulch. We see a side canyon and decide to explore it. We had been looking for old Indian Ruins. As we start up the canyon we suddenly see that there are signs of Native Americans. But instead of old ruins we find that we have stumbled upon living Anasazi Indians. I was uncertain whether we have transported back in time or if we had found a civilization that has been undiscovered by modern people until this very moment.

      I pause. I don't want to disturb anyone. To continue on we would be walking right through the middle of their village. But Susan keeps walking past some of the dwellings and to an alcove in the side of the canyon. I cautiously follow and so does Marsha. Suddenly Susan starts singing. It is a haunting Native American type song. It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.. Marsha then pulls out her Native American wooden flute and starts to play along. I then kneel and use my legs for a drum. The Anasazi people seem just as enthralled as I am with the beauty of the music.

      The brief thought goes through my mind that I wish I were recording this with my camera.

      This dream was inspired by a recent trip to Coyote Gulch where were visited old Anasazi ruins.

    5. Fragments from my kayaking/camping trip

      by , 06-10-2013 at 04:17 PM
      I just got back from our annual house boating/kayaking/camping trip on Lake Powell. I had really wanted a lucid dream while I was out, but we played really hard, and I slept very hard. We were up by 4:30 every morning, which also doesn't help in having LDs since most of my LDs occur after that time when I have a chance to sleep in a bit. I had a few dream fragments. One was about one of my friends from the trip. Two were about Tom DeLonge (apparently I can't get him out of my head). I'm pretty sure others dreams involved kayaking or hiking, but I didn't write any of them down, so they have pretty much all faded.

      Now that I'm back I have got to work at doing the Task of the Month.
    6. Hiking the Grand Canyon

      by , 05-25-2013 at 02:24 AM

      I was hiking the Grand Canyon rim to rim in a day. I was alone but met up with Danny R somewhere in the middle. At one point the trail got so steep it was almost vertical. I wondered if I would ever finish in a day if it were like this.

    7. Hiking

      by , 05-03-2013 at 05:31 PM
      This dream is a little fuzzy, but I want to get back into the habit of writing down all my dreams.

      I was with a group of friends hiking. Our group had split into two. I was with a group that was going sooo slow. I was frustrated. I know the other group was going to see so much more stuff. We were back in a canyon that reminded me a little of Willow Gulch but drier. Finally I could see the other group ahead and I hurried to catch up with them.

    8. Scary Hike

      by , 04-30-2013 at 04:53 PM
      Dream 4:

      I was hiking with friends. We came to this deep but fairly narrow chasm we had to cross. I remember being really stressed out and not sure if I would be able to do it or not.

    9. The DeLonge's Giant Sloth

      by , 04-30-2013 at 04:53 PM
      Dream 3:

      I was going to go on a hike with Tom and Jennifer DeLonge. I went to their house to pick them up. When I got there I realized that I had never been there before. I came into their entry and was in awe as I saw they had a giant sloth skeleton set up. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen in anyone's house before. As Tom, Jennifer and I started our walk, all I could do was to talk about the skeleton and how cool it was and how I wanted one in my house now.
    10. The Wave

      by , 10-18-2012 at 04:52 PM
      All I remember from last night is talking to Bodhi about going to The Wave, and he said he couldn't go with me because he was going to the Second Wave. I asked him if he was going to leave his ropes, but I was awakened before I got an answer.

    11. Two Dreams: Creepy guy and Hiking

      by , 11-12-2011 at 02:50 PM
      Dream 1:

      I was traveling somewhere with Jeff and Tito. We had stopped at a large motel. We had parked around on the back side. We had to walk up a little hill to get to the building. As we walked my feet got caught in all the burrs in the weeds on the hill. It was like velcro. I could barely walk. But I somehow managed to yank my feet up and make it to the motel. I also felt this awful dark feeling. I felt something was wrong and that something bad would happen.

      I think we talked to someone in the motel (this part is fuzzy). We had these little toy things that could transform when you took them to this special place. This motel had one of this places. We got two of the toys transformed, but then I said that I felt we needed to leave. The guys also felt this. So we walked back down the hill where our feet kept getting stuck.

      As we were almost to the car I could see that this creepy guy was following us. We ran to the car, but the creepy guy was able to jump inside the car. Jeff took off driving down the street. The door on the creepy guys side wasn't shut. I reached around and kicked at him with my feet. I told Tito to also kick at him since he was next time him. We finally kicked him out of the car. I look back and saw his body flying arcross the road and hitting a light pole. I wondered if he had survived. I asked the guys if they thought we needed to call the police and tell them what happened. I was worried that we would be reported by the bystanders who didn't know the situation.

      And that's all I remember.

      Dream 2:

      I was at this resort at the base of this mountain. I knew that there were some amazing hikes that started right behind the resort. I wasn't prepared for a big hike, but I wanted to hike just a little of the trail and then head back. I followed this girl. She had a little trouble getting up this really steep part. I felt a little proud that I got up it with no problem. I followed her for about a half mile or so. She stopped to change a shirt. I stopped and talked to her. I asked what her plans were. She told me that she would hike til dark, then make camp. I looked at saw that her backpack was tiny. There was no way she had a tent or sleeping bag or any camping gear of any kind I that pack. I told her that it woud be getting really cold, but she didn't seem to be worried. I didn't know if I should try to talk her out of it or not. I didn't want her to freeze to death. But she seemed so confident that I let her go on while I turned aruond and went back.

    12. Hiking in a Slot Canyon

      by , 11-08-2011 at 06:58 PM

      I was hiking with a group of people through this narrow wavy slot canyon. It wasn't very tall, and it seemed to be located in a much larger canyon. I went back and forth through this slot canyon several times.

      It reminded me a little of this canyon:

      There was much more to this dream, but this is the part I remember.

    13. Hiking mountains and bad bathrooms

      by , 10-19-2011 at 04:00 PM
      Yesterday's dreams:

      I had climbed to the top of this huge cliff/mountain. I was alone and I got tired so I fell asleep on this little ledge next to the highest steepest part of the cliff. I "woke up" and saw where I was and freaked out. I was so scared that I couldn't move. I noticed my cat was now with me sleeping by my head (as she was in real life). I noticed she was right my the edge. I was a little worried for her. I didn't want her to fall. But I knew cats were pretty sure footed, so I started worrying about me again. I had no idea how I was going to get off this cliff when I was so terrified I couldn't move. So I just laid there.

      Finally this man comes to me. He looked about 45 or 50 years old and Mexican, but spoke with an American accent. He told me his name was Journel. He was very calm and confindent. He convinced me to take his hand and stand up. Once I was up I started getting my confidence back, and I knew I would be able to make it down the montain.

      Dream 2:

      I was excited to start this long hike. It was something I had wanted to do for a long time. I had gotten all this stuff ready for it. It seems like there were things distracting me from getting started, but finally I was off. But when I looked at my watch it was 4:00 in the afternoon. I had wanted to leave by 6:00 in the morning because this was going to take about 12 hours. But I decided that I was just going to go anyway. I was with Susan at this point, and Carl, I think.

      Dream 3:

      Another bad bathroom dream.

      I was in a large group of people. I think it was by a mall of sorts. I needed to go to the bathroom. I wanted to go in the mall to my sister's Salon. I had to wait in a line to get into the mall. And then I found that I had to have some kind of pass to get in. But I convinced the lady that I knew the person in the Salon.

      When I got to the restrooms I was that they were really just four toilets sitting out at the side of the store. There was a curtain that was supposed to pull across all four. I watied until there was a spot open and sat on the toilet. I couldn't get the curtain to pull across. I looked out and saw that the store was full of guys. I felt really embarrassed. But no one was paying too much attention to those of us on the toilets, so I finally just went.
