    Zödra

    Please read before checking out Dream Journal

    Thank you for clicking my DJ. I am currently working on a more sophisticated way to read it, and any comments would do a lot to speed up the process, since I am not lacking time to do this, just the willingness. If you have any questions regarding specific dreams, please ask in those specific entries and like the dream (this will let me know that there is a new comment here and is actually pretty much dream journal etiquette).

    You can read my DJ any way you want, but this will outline a more chronological way, other than just “When I felt like writing it”. If you have any specific requests or questions about techniques, feel free to PM me or check out some of my started threads.

    My dream world is Zödra (ö = ALT+0246) and was put together from my collection of dream memories as well as some persistent dream characters. I believe that the majority of the continuity in Zödra is due to the fact that I connected all the ideas in waking and believed them to be connected. Now that I believe that, I can alter it during waking and change a few easy rules in waking at will so that I will have a more fun experience there. A persistent dream world is something that has been used by countless dreamers and the idea of persistence has been in effect for hundreds of years. I was getting ready to give up on lucid dreaming until I ran into this:
    Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views - Hyu's Adventures - Dream Journals
    Specifically this post:
    Persistent realms and other lucid dreaming techniques I use. - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream ViewsIt talks about a world that is always persistent and actions have consequences, and if you die, you can’t come back. After finding it, reading it, and loving it, I redoubled my efforts to LD.
    My realm is very important when reading any of my dreams ever, because after I found out about it, and establishing the rules, every dream I ever had became important. Here are the rules that haven’t changed since the beginning:

    Zödra is a persistent dream realm, it is not a persistent realm
    This simple addition of a word means that the DCs are DCs, not persistent characters, the places are dream places, not persistent. The persistence comes from specific individuals.

    Anyone that realizes that it is a dream while in Zödra becomes persistent, and their actions also become persistent. This includes actions taken without knowing it is a dream.
    So any other DC that realizes that it is a dream will become persistent and with each place that it goes, that place becomes persistent. While knowing it is a dream, it is possible also to go to a place and it not be persistent, but that takes actual work, default makes it persistent. Also, since I have been lucid before in Zödra, then any dream that I can remember is also persistent, including dreams from childhood before I lucid dreamed. I actually learned this as opposed to making this rule, by accidentally visiting places from childhood dreams, and by talking with persistent characters.

    Any abilities you learn inside Zödra stay with you and cannot be lost, though they can be suppressed by other items, people, abilities, or if you springboard off of Zödra into a different realm.
    Long description is self explanatory.

    If you tell a DC that they are dreaming, then this does not make them persistent, they have to find it out on their own.
    Found out through trial and error. If I tell a DC that it is dreaming, then it won’t be the next dream that I meet it. If a DC knows that it is dreaming when I meet it, then I will more than likely see them again. This should be superseded by the ability that one persistent evil character I know has, but I have yet to try it, he can change someone’s awareness levels if they are not actively protecting their awareness.

    So these are kind of the observed rules. They lead to a lot of fun times, and other conclusions, but moving on! Not all the dreams I want on here are on here yet, and I have gotten a lot better at dream goals, so I am expecting most of these to be updated often. Also, there are stars… you know, for you. ☆★☆★☆★☆★

    As you can see, I don’t have many links yet. Haha. Will be adding these as soon as possible. A lot of the Zödra dreams have been written in some weird places and will have to be scavenged and written in the DJ added to the chronology and its category. Should be pretty cool. I am hoping to have a DJ entry for each one of these sometime instead, but we will see.

      DEILD back to a dream.
      I leave a huge store and see a lake. It is getting dark out, I find a family camping. I see two little girls (ages 7 and 10) and ask them if one of them is Nyxcc, and they both answer "no".
      I follow them to a water slide and their dad is watching me. I slide down and before I hit the water I float back to the slide so that I land perfectly at the edge (shouldn't be possible. the older girl is amazed, the younger less so. I look at the amazed girl and say.
      "You definitely aren't Nyxcc." Look at the other and say " but you are!" She smiles and nods. She looks like she is about seven and has brown hair. I can't remember eye color, they seemed bright.
      "This is a dream." She says.
      "What is your next dream goal?" I ask as I grab her hand so I don't lose her.
      "I want to visit old central America."
      "Ok... I am having trouble remembering anything from central America... That is like... Mexico and can't remember much else."
      We walk into the tent where I see a TV. I go to the TV and change to the history channel. I try changing the words on the screen and fast forwarding and rewinding. I can't seem to get it to say anything except prehistoric turtles and all. I give up and look at Nyx.
      "I got it, close your eyes." She says and puts her hands over my eyes.
      I close and she takes care of the imagination and old Mexico appears. It is a place filled with ruins of native Americans. There are ziggurats as well as things that are and never were a part of Mexico. The place we are in is a bit of a jungle. Nyxcc looks my age now, still brown hair, but lighter brown and bright eyes, she stands at about 5'6. I tell her to get on my back so we don't get lost. We run around for like 10 minutes. I notice that the ruins are hot enough that some of the animals are being cooked as we run around. I pick one that looks like a huge snail, in the middle is meat (makes no sense whatsoever). I take a small bite and hand it back. She jumps off and seems to run away. The dream ends.
      Looking up pictures right now it seems like it was a mixture of aztec ruins, amazon rainforest, and animals that are bigger than they should be.
