    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. ☆★☆★☆★☆★

    1. Wrong Work - ~Dreamer~! ★★★★☆

      by , 07-23-2015 at 03:45 PM (Zödra)
      I am walking in to my old work and I start realizing that I don't work there anymore. I am getting a little embarrassed and then I stop and remember that I had a dream at this work the day before. I know that this is a dream now, but RC anyways due to the amount of vividness being trippy and what I was planning on doing next was gonna be weird. I look up in the sky and notice that it went from morning to night very quickly. I see the moon and it is bright and silver and beautiful. I close my eyes, but the sight of the moon doesn't go away. I "fall asleep" and the moon slowly changes to the earth and starts spinning quite fast and then slows down. I think that this is awesome since I was talking about seeing the earth in the sky yesterday.

      I notice that there is a break in the sky and that it looks like legoland on the other side. There are all sorts of buildings and things. I fly around a bit and look in it, but it seems pretty far away and I had other plans. I go inside and go to sleep again, trying ~dreamer~'s way of having super long LDs. As I fall asleep I notice that I have a big ball in my hand. I focus on it as I fall asleep and then wake up outside. this time I am near a bunch of businesses and I can't seem to fly at all. I am quite confused and I decide to mess with gravity. I flip upside down and just float there like there is zero gravity. Then I start walking on the underside of the awnings with gravity flipped (Some DCs watching me a little here). I remember that I have a goal and I go off "into the distance" until I find something interesting. I notice a vending machine and stop there. I see a bar on the bottom that looks awesome and instead of trying to just summon money I open up the vending machine. I notice a lock and I phase it through and off. I grab the crackers and read the package. It is super clear and doesn't change, but it doesn't say anything about LDing like I was trying to get it to. I stop caring about this because dreamer is there. She doesn't say anything at first, but we decide (somehow) that we are going to try and find the right thing in a house near us.

      We fly onto the roof and phase through. As we are doing this I feel like I have 3 different dream bodies, the two sleeping and the one awake. It makes sense to me that this would make a dream last longer, but I don't know how. I think about how all 3 different places exist at the same time as opposed to it just being a scene change. I land in a different room than her and I start checking the living room... I see dreamer outside somehow.
      "Try and remember this when you wake up" She says "but you probably don't remember who I am."
      "You are ~Dreamer~, I'll remember, I am very aware. You make sure you journal as soon as you wake up." I say. she is fading. I try to jump through the glass but end up spidermaning all over it.

      I decide to continue with the lengthening of the dream and head to the kitchen. I open the fridge and realize that a drink in the fridge would make the dream last longer. I find one and put it to my lips... and wake up.

    2. DG Summer Home. ★★★★☆

      by , 02-10-2015 at 11:39 PM (Zödra)
      I am in a snowed over city standing near a road... hmmm... I am dreaming. my goal is... dreamer! I look around for a flash of purple against the white. She is standing in a crowd. I run over and say the line I had rehearsed.
      "Dreamer, take me to the upper league and to where time moves slower."
      "No, the competition is over, I do have something to show you though."
      "Take me there." She grabs my hand and we start running through the city. at first at normal speeds, but then we start moving faster than possible and people are looking at us funny. I want to laugh at the DCs, but I am too busy being pulled by dreamer. We are reaching the outskirts of the city and it seems to end abruptly and there is a huge lake and a big house near it. It reminds me of a lake house that we rented back when my Grandpa was still alive. This didn't seem to be the same though, since it wasn't in a wooded area.

      "What is this place?"
      "A place for the Dreamviews Dream Guides to come for relaxation and an awesome place to hang out!" She says. I notice now that she is in a bikini. I morph my clothes into board shorts and I look down at the water and see dreamy, percy, and NyxCC flying above the water and dipping into it. Dreamy keeps going higher and higher and then just falling into the water and then flying out. Dreamer tackles him during one of his falls and they disappear into the water. I scan in the house and feel ThreeCat meditating in there. I do a bigger scan and notice that there is someone moving towards us quickly from the sky. I look up and see canis waving. What an awesome dream... Don't know if this is shared dreaming, but one can hope.
      I fly into the water and create a huge water vortex and shoot it at canis as he is flying in. It shoots him higher into the air and then he rushes back in at me. Percy runs inside and tells ThreeCat that we are all there, and we all stay outside for what seemed like hours, on, in, and around the water. I realize that canis had been missing for a while and I scan for him inside. He seems to have been doing some lucid cooking and he beckoned me to get everyone inside. I grab everyone with scan and teleport them inside. We all sit down and eat at the table. I don't remember much of what we ate or talked about. I don't know if I had lucidity the whole time, but the feelings were there, I was a little sad the whole time thinking that they might all be fake, but I knew that it didn't matter and I should just enjoy the time I had. I woke up a little after dinner as we were all sitting on the roof watching the sunset.

      I am in a snowy city at night... wait a minute, I look to my left and realize that my brother in law is driving, but I know this city... I am dreaming! I take control of his body through scan and force him to drive like a maniac on the ice (very easy to drive awesome on ice when you decide when it is gonna slide and when it is not). I jump out of the top of the car as we get close to the house and there is a huge spaceship next to the lakehouse. It seems like only Percy is there. I wander where the others are, but then I realize that time has passed since I came there and that the one day that we had was at least a day ago and we all had gone back to our normal dream lives. Percy is standing on the roof and challenging the leader of the ship. An old man that comes out that reminds me of Hades:

      I suddenly realize where this lake house is at. I do scan to check it out and we are at Dreamer's Reach, the whole city and lake are on top of the island. I land next to Percy and say "It is up to us to stop him, really shouldn't be that hard."
      He looks down at us laughs and puts his hands together like he is doing Grimoire Law

      I scan teleport next to him and summon a sword at the same time, with one swipe chopping his arm off before I even fully am teleported there. I look across Hades arm and see Percy has chopped of the other arm. He puts a hand on his back and is getting ready to teleport him somewhere else, but I stop him.
      I create a barrier in Hades heart that will stop it from working if he ever gets near Dreamer's Reach again. I then let him know about this and Percy teleports him and the spaceship away. I don't know if he did this and then came back or if he just did it by touching it. It was quite impressive. I flew down to the house and we talked a bit about how awesome it will be when there are more dreamers there all the time. He mentioned, though, that the lake house should be reserved for DGs and I thought that that seemed pretty cool.

    3. Are you fryingman? ★★★★☆

      by , 08-25-2014 at 01:44 PM (Zödra)
      I woke up around 530 and did a micro - WBTB, woke up to my alarm and decided to take another 30 minutes of sleep since I felt like I was almost there!

      I wake up in my room and step outside. My friends are gonna give me a ride to work. I don't understand how I can do my work without a car. Hmmm... RC. Awesome. I see a DC nearby and am about to go all caveman. I notice the dream becoming unstable. I take my hands and rub them together. I have an important mission. I step away from the girl and yell:
      "Fryingman!" I see 3 men across the way. I fly over and as I get close one disappears. I point at one that seems to have the right description.
      "Fryingman?" I ask, and he shakes his head and takes off running. I look at the other one. Too short. Too young. I turn away and turn back. Still looks pretty young, but a dream person isn't really gonna have a set age anyways.
      "Yes! You found me!" He says. I shake his hand.
      "You are dreaming!" He looks confused, maybe he didn't hear me "you are in a dream. You are dreaming." He walks away and I grab him. I need to show him some dream powers, that should awaken him to the dream.

      I look around. It looks a bit like Texas would have looked in the 1800 had it been in Europe. (European 1800s style house, Texas landscape). I see a mansion about a 100 yards away.

      "ill teach you energy manipulation!" I say "gotta get in the right pose" I pose like I am doing a Kamehameha wave. I focus on the core and moveit to my hands and then in between my hands in a ball. I am floating a few feet above the ground for fora proper Kamehameha wave. I release and go flying back. The wave didn't seem to destroy the house either. That was weird. I am lying on the pavement and I can't find fryingman anywhere. I wake up after a minute or so.

      I wake up in bed and my in laws are giving me a ride to work. I am thinking about the previous dream as I get ready for work and my alarm goes off.

    4. NyxCC in the Challenge #2. ★★★★☆

      by , 07-04-2014 at 02:39 PM (Zödra)
      Getting up frustrated about no LDs. i realize that I am lethargic and can barely see. I keep trying to fix this, but can't. I wake up

      DEILD back. I get frustrated that I couldn't get back in the dream and get up. Something attacks and I can't even move. It drops me to the floor. I want to get up, but it wakes me.

      DEILD back. NyxCC
      I get up. I fly outside really fast and calm down. Dream goals... NyxCC I think, and look around the street, I see a figure getting into their car. I fly there quickly before she has a chance to drive off. I grab her hand before she gets out of the car. She is inches shorter than last time, and wider.
      "Come with me, got somewhere to explore" I say, since she seems to be losing interest.
      "Ok, I know where we are going, I have a way to get there. Just got to grab something fist." She walks around the car and disappears. Dang it. wake up.

      DEILD back. Enemy attacks again.

      DEILD back. NyxCC
      I try to make it out of the house, but my dream body isn't working very well. I lay down and teleport out of the house. I see a lot of cars wrecked in the road. I notice that it is probably my fault, since I am standing right in the middle of the road. I realize that there is no one in any of the cars. Touché dream. I slow down... I try to think of a creative way to find her. I see a body in the wreckage and walk to it and see that it is just legs, not what you normally think of when you think "legs in wreckage", but more like a pair of legs that were made to be that way. On to option number 2, I turn to the sky and don't see what I am looking for, but there are plenty of clouds to conceal it. I decide to just head there. I send out a message to NyxCC on my phone to where I am going (I just touch the phone to send it). I think of where I am wanting to go and direct the wind that way. I start floating over there and realize that I need to fly faster and higher. I walk up a few steps and it sends me from about 5 mph (8 kilo/hour) to about 100 (160 kilo/hour) and about 100 meters up. I notice that I am not alone and I turn around to see NyxCC behind me flying along. She is flying like a DBZ character and looks back to her normal self (normal from what I have seen of her in dreams).

      "Try and keep up!" I yell and speed up to double my speed. She flies above me and I turn around and fly upside down. She pushes me down and I start falling. I can see the water coming at me, smell the ocean. I keep going at that speed and pull myself up at the last second before I hit the water. I can feel the water splashing on my back and I lift my head up to the sky. NyxCC is a few inches away from me and smiling. She shoves me down again, but this time I fall into the water. I go down a bit and then float back up. NyxCC is laughing and I start laughing too. I imagine a small island behind me and start swimming towards it. It is a small floating child's playground. I climb on shore and step up to the playground. I try to imagine a ladder to the place I want to go in the sky, but can't seem to find one. I find a small place under a slide and try to imagine that it is a teleportation device. I make some buttons on the bottom of the slide and hit them. Nothing happens. I decide to just apparate and get there. I can see the place in my mind. I grab NyxCC's hand and turn, nothing happens. I imagine it in my head more and more and am in a limbo between both places. NyxCC's hand makes it more real back on the play-island. I try to do this about six times and it wakes me up on the sixth time.

    5. technique: uncomfortable wife ★★★☆☆

      by , 05-26-2013 at 08:49 PM (Zödra)
      So my wife is 37 weeks and pregnant and apparently very uncomfortable at night time. So when she goes to bed she has been keeping me up for an hour or two lately (note a bit of cold streak). Last night I kept falling asleep and she would wake me, this probably happened 10 times. When you do this it normally puts you in some FAs. So here is how they start.

      Laying in bed for 10 minutes and then the light turns on. I look around and can see, but my eyes are closed. I start to open my eyes and think that I will wake up and just go around the room with my eyes closed. After I leave the room I wake up.

      RC. Back to sleep.

      I am in a castle. dreaming again. I see some kids playing baseball in the courtyard. I jump down and see an old man teaching them.
      Old man: you can't just go around doing whatever you want in dreams.
      Me: yes I can.
      Old man: these kids are better than you.
      Me: I can hit any pitch they throw
      (apparently not very understanding right now) I hit 2/3 pitches and then I grab one of the children (age 1-2) and it is a little boy.
      Old man: I am better than you.
      Me: you raise one. I raise the others. Mine will be better.
      I take off in the air and fly into outer space really quickly. The scenery outside of the castle is all just clouds (unexplored territory on a map. Castle is really freaking huge. Not on earth, but a flat land that goes on really far, even from space I couldn't see the whole planet.

      Wake up. RC. Back to sleep.

      I had a few more false awakenings i think. Didn't catch them.

      I am in the castle again. Aparently I didn't bring the kid with me, but I was infiltrating the old man's castle. Apparently he had been training the kids to be ninjas. I am walking through an arcade and I realize that none of the games are real and I am dreaming. I know that there are about 11 ninjas hiding. I decided to not use dream powers, except foresight. I all of the sudden knew where each of the ninjas were and how they would attack me depending on how I go (read blink for more info). I step across a game and a ninja with two swords attacks. I jump to the side and grab his sword. Twist it around and he loses his hand and head. I drop the sword, I would die with it. Two jump me with curved knives. I ducked and kicked one of them onto the other. Stole one of the knives as he flew over. The two of them got up and attacked me at the same time. I slipped between them and stabbed them both in vital places that would drop them. I kept walking down the hallway to the bathroom. The rest of them were in there. I jumped into the stall and kicked the toilet out. As soon as two jumped in they got blown away by the water shooting out. I grab a bomb out of the dead ninja and drop it back into the pipes. I grab three more ninjas and throw them into the stall. Run out of the bathroom and the dead bodies fly out as I exit around the corner. I then woke up.

    6. 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.

    7. Moon Sharing. ★★★★★

      by , 11-04-2012 at 07:33 PM (Zödra)
      Hey, I had about 3 or 4 LDs last night, and halfway through them I had this awesome epic LD. When I was in it I was pretty sure it was shared, but now I am not so sure.

      I keep having things to do in my dreams that I am told will "make me lucid" it has become a dreamsign for me. I was told that if I plug a USB into it, then I would become lucid. I plugged it in and I started moving things with telekinesis, but I wasn't really aware that I was in a dream. A leprechaun unplugged the USB and "made me not lucid" in the dream, he handed it back to me and told me to put it back where it belongs. I told him I would, but then I decided not to worry about it and get lucid.

      As I plugged it in I felt like it was going into my right ear, it hurt really bad, and when I had finished it felt better and I realized that it was unnecessary to become lucid and knew that I was in a dream.

      I looked around at my environment, the same place I had been in my previous dream that was also lucid, but this time it was more vivid, and I didn't want to go with the dream this time, I wanted to mess around! (my last dream was bungee jumping without a harness with my friend and acting like a superhero)

      There was a crappy house with broken brick lying on the ground everywhere, I picked it all up with my mind and started moving it. I looked at the moon, the night was ending and I wanted to go there. It was right over some mountains. I jumped in the air and nothing happened. Grrr... I can do this, just imagine flying, and believe you can do it. I started floating through the air and flipping my feet around in order to move towards the horizon. As I passed the mountain a man told me to come with him (seemed like the same man from piqued interest) and we both started flying faster and entered "the moon" which wasn't even out of the atmosphere.

      Inside was a bunch of people landing on the moon, there was also a front desk that told me to sign in and to go through the program.
      "What is this for?" I asked.
      "The moon in dreams is used for shared dreaming." She said. I signed in and believed everything she said. I don't think now that this was a shared experience, but in the dream I believed completely that I was surrounded by oneironauts. A lot of stuff happened inside, and they told me not to tell, they said that you can't talk about what is inside except in dreams.

      Tell me similar experiences, and if this was a shared dream please tell me. telekinesis

    8. Ghost Concert. ★★☆☆☆

      by , 10-27-2012 at 11:28 AM (Zödra)
      I am going through on a computer and this weird lady that is supposed to be my mother is showing me things. She pulls up something that is supposed to be my future baby, and I am looking down at it and ask "is this real?" she replies "no, this is a dream."
      I look around, trying to stabilize first. I am somehow in my parents house even though the dream started out in a different random open house and I want to just fly out the window, but it didn't work because of the glass. Screw it, I'll go out the door." i go out to the hallway, walk down the stairs, around the corner and realize that the dream is fading. I start looking at all my surroundings and shaking my extremities. It is dark outside, but it gets brighter, it looks like it is a full moon outside. I open the door to go outside, but then I start switching to a semi-lucid state. I tell myself that I can't leave the door open to my parents house, so I stand outside and "wake myself up." I walk back in the house and go to the top of the stairs and "fall back to sleep" I am now transported outside.
      There is a guy outside that wants to hear my band play, he is showing his friends how the guitar at his neighbors house plays itself at certain times of night. I let the guitar stay on the ground and I rock for about 10 minutes. I realize that I don't have to follow with the dream anymore after about 2 minutes, but the other 8 I am in a lucid state and just enjoying my own dream concert that only I can hear
      The whole dream lasted 15 minutes (That is how long I told myself that I had been in there right before I woke up)

    9. 3 LDs. ★★☆☆☆

      by , 10-20-2012 at 02:15 PM (Zödra)
      I wake up and write some small things about my dreams down. Sad I missed another layer 0 clues (In my dream I was talking to people from this forum IRL, and they were giving me loads of advice on LDing). I then decided to chant (like a mantra, but a little different since it is changing almost every time I go to sleep) that I would RC next time something weird happens. I go back to bed.

      Lucid 1

      I am talking to someone on the phone. I look up at the sky. There is a huge black hole in the sky (only way to describe this is a rip in dimensions like Bleach) I stare at it for a minute, and then it closes. The clouds go back to normal around it somehow. I think about it and decide to tell the person on the phone that no one even knows what causes the big black tears in the sky, but then I remember that I need to RC more. I look at my hands, they are blurry (my hands are never missing fingers, they are normally just short fingers or hard to see). I know that it is a dream now! I start to stabilize and start seeing everything become more stable, but then I try to feel more of what is on my body, and it feels like a blanket. I start feeling it more and I wake up.

      I RC and write down part of my dream and go back to sleep.

      Lucid 2

      I am walking down an alleyway similar to the last one in my dream. I suddenly become lucid. I check my hands and they look normal. Try to put my finger through my hand, but it is solid. I plug my nose and I can breath. (I was pretty aware at this point, so I knew I should RC first). I start stabilizing and can feel no wind, which was going to be my way to fly. I finish stabilizing.
      I look around at the landscape. I am behind a school. There is a tree with low hanging fruit about 20 feet up. I am not great at flying, but I decide to fly. I run backwards a bit and feel some wind, I try to use that to give myself an idea how to fly. I try jumping, but fall on my back (this unstabilizes me for a bit). My sister walks up and asks me what I am doing. I reply that I am going to fly, but pay no attention to her because she is a DC. The dream fades.

      I wake up, RC, write down a few things and go back to sleep.

      Lucid 3
      I am in about the same place. I suddenly think Reality check! I perform a reality check and wake up.

      I wake up in my old room, walk over to my old window and start writing down my dream. I spill some stuff on my hand, wash it off and then go back to bed.

      I am about to merge onto the highway, I have been on this highway before. I know that it is a dream. I forgo RCing, and take my car up the on ramp, it just keeps going up and up and up. There is a random girl DC next to me and she tells me to slow down. I tell her I know what I am doing. I lift the car off the road and fly around for a while, going really high! I am pretty excited. I do an RC and stabilize, as I do this the car starts getting wobbly. I decide to jump out. I am not the best at flying, because my confidence in it was shaken a while ago, but I know I can do this (didn't realize that had I not flown I would have done task 2 ) The ground is flying towards me. It is just like skydiving (I was really high in the car). I look at a point and decide that I will stop there and look at the houses. I stop in the air suddenly. I flew around the city for a few minutes and then woke up.

    10. Lucid for the Competition. ★★★☆☆

      by , 10-16-2012 at 11:20 PM (Zödra)
      I was in front of a mirror, as soon as I saw it I thought I don't want to look in that. Why am I afraid of looking in mirrors? This is a dream! I picked it up and saw myself with a full beard, which I thought was the funniest thing ever. I dropped the mirror and turned around, then I was standing in a backyard! I don't even think about doing a reality check, I know that it is a dream (I forgot that there are points for it ). I have run through my head what to do over and over, but it is very hazy. Stabilize! I barely remember. It doesn't seem like a dream at all, it seems like I am just being an idiot in real life and looking at my hands, listening, and trying to feel the breeze around me (I always forget to look around more to get that stabilized). I didn't look around to see my surroundings much, but there is nice grass under my feet, and I am in the back yard of a four story mansion. I can feel it now though, I am in the dream, I almost take off running, but what I wanted to do rushed into my mind. I have to summon something! I reach in my pocket, and nothing is in there, I knew that would happen, so I went on to plan B for summoning, I closed my eyes and thought Of course it is not in there, you left the Red Bull in your back pocket. I reach back there, and pull out a small Red Bull can, it is about three inches high. I pop the top and start drinking. It tastes a lot sweeter than Red Bull, I don't really like Red Bull anyways, but Red Bull gives you wings, and I want to fly.

      It takes about thirty seconds to down the tiny can. I look around at the back yard and I am floating, I do not have wings though, but I am floating! I am above the four story house almost at the tops of the trees that I will be trying to go over in a second. One eye messes up and everything looks less clear from that eye. I completely forget how to stabilize
      and wake into a false awakening into the same back yard that I was just in, but I am completely absorbed in the next dream.

    11. Crazy Town. Non Lucid - Flying

      by , 10-16-2012 at 11:19 PM (Zödra)
      When I was younger I had some dream experiences that went with the laws of physics being thrown out the window. Very cool times and both of them I even questioned reality. Here are two old dreams:

      Age: 5

      It was night in the city. There was a huge building that I wanted to climb and on the outside I could see these floating red things. I went into the building and it looked a lot like a Zelda dungeon, but I had never played Zelda before, it took me a long time to get to the floor with the red things floating outside, and when I got there I realized that it was red couches. 3 of them, with people filling all the seats but one. I float over to the couch and began talking to the people there. I don't remember the conversation, but it seemed amazing. Very good time, but then I flew down to the ground and attempted to get back up to the couches from inside the building again. I make it back up after a long amount of time, but it seems like the distance from the building is farther and the ground farther, and like such a long time since I first flew. I started thinking that this might be a dream, but they told me to fly to them and I took a leap of faith (like a little Boss) (I was very much in control at this time, before it seemed like I was just doing the first thing that popped into my head, now I was thinking). I woke up when I hit the couch.

      age: 14

      I was standing on a building next to my friend (he is my brother in law now) and my sister was telling me how awesome he was because he could do this. She pointed to him and he jumped in the air and floated away. "I can do that!" I said, and jumped and floated away. I started flying everywhere, but the more I landed, the harder it was to get in the sky, at first I had to jump, then double jump, and then I had to jump off of high heights. I flew into my window and walked to the stairs, 19 stairs. I knew that if I jumped I would be able to fly, but my rational side of my brain started working. That was a dream that you were flying, you woke up now and you can't fly. you'll kill yourself. then the other side of my brain I have been flying all day, I haven't woken up yet. I stared at the stairs, not knowing if it was a dream or not until I woke up.

      I was very much into dreams at this point, telling a lot of people about my dreams, but I had never heard of them before, so I didn't know about them at this time. The stairs that I was staring at I can imagine and looked exactly like my parents actual stairs that they still have, so there was nothing there to give me the idea I was in a dream. I did not know what a reality check was. Had I realized I was in a dream, I might have been an oneironaut sooner in life.

      age: 16

      I was going to my friend's house for a party (the same one from the story above), which was really weird since he hated large groups at the time. It was an entire block party and I was going around socializing when all of the sudden it clicks that "I can fly!" I flew around for a while really high, then went back to the party hoping to talk to some gals. (this was right before I started liking my wife). As I landed I did a bunch of flips accidentally before I hit the ground. These flips alerted me to the fact that I was only wearing boxers and I was in the middle of a party. I didn't really care about the embarrassment, but I spent the remainder of the dream looking for clothes.
