    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.

    1. Fight! ★★★★☆

      by , 05-02-2013 at 06:03 PM (Zödra)
      Yay! Awesome Lucid fighting!

      I am going to the Dollar General outside town and I run into my sisters. They tell me to go back home since they are buying things for Laura's Baby Shower. I leave and go back. This time my parents are there and tell me the same thing. I leave, but when I get to the Parking lot I see a bunch of my spy gear laying out. I crush all of it since I can't use it except for two gadgets. I go back and give them to my dad. He is the only one that can direct us home using that now. He puts a blindfold on and the gadgets over his eyes, he can now see what is really there and can get us away from the "enemy". I walk with him for a few minutes and fall through the ground. I am in a parking garage basement. I now know that it is a dream I see about 50 people coming towards me, there is no cars to block their way, so I just start fighting. Since I told someone yesterday to try and fight without dream powers I decided to just go hand to hand without a weapon. The people are acting like zombies, but they look perfectly normal. Three of them charge at me while the others are encircling me. I jump on one and tear his throat out, punch another one in the face while trying to slam his head on a pillar. I get grabbed from behind and am surrounded

      BAM! I land back where I was before fighting. It seems that time in this dream jumps backwards if I die. I run backwards and get two people away from the crowd. I slam one into the ground and jump on the other one, pulling his heart out (Been watching Once Upon a Time and they do that a lot in that show ). I keep running and get surrounded, it looks like the only exit is through the 50 people.

      Bam, land back with the time jump. I run through and try not to grabbed and there is a line of 5 people at the end after running through them. I try to jump over them, but one grabs me, I land and tear his throat out. Someone grabs me again.

      BAM! Time jump again. Screw this I think. I teleport outside of the garage and set the place on fire, five of them make it out alive and I make a barrier around them and remove them from existence. One of them didn't disappear and jumped at me. I reach my hand up and stop her in mid air with telekinesis. My dad is near because he was part of the dream before and was waiting for me to come out of the parking garage. I look at the girl in mid air, she is trying to jump at me, the extras must have stolen her mind and changed some DCs to being nothing more than mindless Zombie-like people. I tear her soul out and her body falls to the ground and dissolves. I then wake up.

    2. Dream Army Base ★★★★★

      by , 03-03-2013 at 06:54 PM (Zödra)
      Date: 3/3/2013
      Total sleep: 9 hours
      Daytime Techniques: ADA (my version), meditation (visual, 20 minutes)
      Lucid Techniques: MILD
      Fell Asleep: 11:30
      Dream Title: Crazy fun
      It is a pretty normal dream, but then I decide to go to sleep and try to WILD. I lay down and instantly teleport to the Dream Army Base (at the time I thought that I had WILDed, but then I realized that I had not. This is actually just a variation of how I teleport and how I WILD, which are similar enough for this to happen in my dreams)I go outside to the forest and travel through to a town. The sky is red, and I am pretty sure that it is night, and the sky is that way so I can see and so that I know that it is dangerous around there. I travel and a cat-girl meets me. Extremely cute. I think for a second that she is an extra, but she doesn't have that vibe. She tells me that she is going to show me a safe place and takes me upstairs. I ask her how the town got ruined and she says that a different girl like her has ruined it. I know that the girl must be an extra.

      Dreaming: Right vs. Left Brain-anime-girl.gif
      Awake: Not really sure
      Vividness: 12
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 20 minutes
      Emotions: Holy awesome crap!

      Fell Asleep: Not really sure
      Dream Title: Extremely dangerous
      I wake up and lay still and DEILD. I am not sure if I actually woke up or if it was just going back to the other layer of my dream (I know that dreams don't actually work in layers, but if you fall asleep in a FA, and then wake up later you have a higher chance of another FA IMO). I appear away from the cat-gal. I am in the streets. There are not many people. I go into a grocery store and hide there. There is a lot of people in a room up the stairs in the back and they are hiding. The catgirl comes in. This is a different one than before. I create a barrier to save all the people I am with out of a red ribbon about an inch off the ground (2.54 centimeters). I step in it, but only have the barrier part, not the teleportation part activate. I ask her what she wants and she says that chaos is the only fun she can have. I step out of the barrier and teleport the people back to the base (sorry, they were all clean. I take them away later). I attack the girl and she dodges. She runs away from me and I chase after her. I force shove her as she is running and she almost gets knocked over. I can't seem to throw a fireball, so I think of another thing that will work. "Incendio!" I cry. It shoots fire and she dodges and get burned a little. She disappears behind some houses. Drat. Almost had her. Awake.
      Awake: Dunno
      Vividness: 12
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 15 minutes
      Emotions: excitement

      Fell Asleep: impossible to tell
      Dream Title: Make sure everyone is ok
      I do the same as last and I still don't know if I woke up. I will count it though. Back at the Dream army base. I notice all the people are gone I must have teleported them away. I thought. I jumped into the red ribbon and appeared at the grocery store. The good Cat-girl was there.
      "You shouldn't leave the ribbon because it is too dangerous." She says. Her smile never falling from her face.
      "I am not afraid of anyone out there." I say. I know that I have to treat dreams as real as possible to keep them realistic, so I don't say why.
      "It is much more powerful," she says "they are not happy with you."
      "Are the people alright?" I ask.
      "I led them home." She replies.
      I watch the city through a window. It has somehow gotten darker and more evil looking. I want to save the city from this darkness, but I also want to take the advice of the local. She doesn't know what I am capable of, but I know that I should limit myself before I demolish the other catgirl.

      Awake: Not sure
      Vividness: 13
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 15 minutes
      Emotions: A little creepy (these aren't really emotions, but it is the general feeling of the dream.

      I think about writing down my dreams, but decide that it was too fun to forget. I RC and go back to sleep.

      Fell Asleep: Forgot to check
      Dream Title: Crazy neighborhood
      I feel the same way I did the last few times like I WILD into it, but I do not realize it is a dream. I do not know how, but my dream got me to think that I was in a video game instead. I am in a different place. It reminds me of my parents neighborhood. I run around and the idea of the previous dream lingers a little. I am fighting an army and I need to win. I do not know why though. I run into a leader and he lets me know that wolfmen (opposite of cute catgirls) are running around and we need to defeat them. I spend a long time going over lame strategies with him that make no sense. I wake up. I am in a room with some friends of mine and telling them about the "game" I was just playing. They said that they are in it too. I jump in and out of the dream multiple times and talk to my friends. Nothing big happens till the end when I get out of the dream and am talking to someone when all of the sudden I feel something behind me. I turn around and I automatically know that it is one of the strongest wolfmen (They look more like wolves, but walk upright). It has a bat and swings it at me. I dodge and it hits a door frame I was standing in. I kick at him and grab the bat. Spin around and while peeling it from his claws I swing it and hit him in the head. A little confused about how he got out of the game I wake up for real.

      Dreaming: Right vs. Left Brain-werewolf.jpg
      Awake: 8:00 AM
      Vividness: 10
      Awareness: 9 (I was really really close)
      Length: an hour or more
      Emotions: a bit scared, mostly having fun

      Notes: Google search that image for a full size image of that cat-girl. It is uncanny how similar she looks to the dream girl except the dream girl wasn't animated.
