    1. #268 - Ripping through reality

      by , 09-07-2016 at 08:49 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I woke up during the night, rolled over and checked my phone, 4:50. My alarm goes off at 6.. I wasn't sure if I'd get a full sleep cycle in but rolled over and headed back to sleep... I was kind of horny though, images started forming and I was just imagining things - then all of sudden I noticed the slightest sensation as if I could feel something. I decided that I'd turn this into a lucid, and promptly did. I WILDed into my room and reality check, sweet it worked . It's quite dark here though.. Darkness in my lucids tends to mean a weak or unstable lucid, so I attempt to stabilize. Me and my dream buddy Emnition have a challenge atm to see who can make a lucid last 5 minutes and I was really keen to try. I do something similar to the method I used in my last lucid, teleporting to a more stable place. I decide to make the 'portal' and reach out to pull apart the fabric of reality (imagine trying to pull apart elevator doors). The darkness splits, a tear cracking through the space in front of me to reveal a bright light shining through. I leap into the light and appear back in my room, it's light but it rapidly fades to darkness, then I wake up.
    2. #266 - Water ball challenge complete :)

      by , 08-23-2016 at 09:06 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I'm a student studying Archaeology.. I'm in a cave area that's been excavated, there's a sort of ledge which I'm sitting on to look at stone engravings. The cave is apparently on a beach where an old civilization may have once existed. The engraved stone looks like sandstone. I notice how the inscriptions depict the missing civilization of people that apparently uprooted their lives to move to a special location, except that's not what the official record is. Apparently someone else interpreted it as these people moving to spread themselves throughout the world, but I believed differently. My professor walks in, I mention my thoughts and say that it makes no sense for them to 'spread throughout the world', it was a hypothesis at best and was mentioned (without proof) that these people were the most advanced species at the time, being the first to discover fire and develop basic crafts --- they were trying to say that by spreading their genes they allowed other humans to evolve their intelligence and also discover fire.

      Eventually the dream changes, I'm walking with a couple guys to the alleged location that the missing people moved to. It seems like there's a special hot spot of energy... Apparently there's apparently some event that occurs every 10'000 years that will be happening soon (and marks the time the mysterious race of people disappeared). There's some dream backstory about how they stopped demons from invading by fighting them off at this energy hot spot. It's dark outside as we walk...

      At some point, possibly prior to heading to the energy hot spot there was an event where there was an old lady in a car. I think I was in the back seat and we could see heaps of birds suddenly migrating in the same direction. Then this old crazy lady called 'Grey Cash' by the village went hurtling by, as if blown away by the wind. This apparently meant that she could sense the same thing driving the birds, a catastrophe.

      Back to the dark night where we were walking.. We come upon a house in a forest, it resembles my parents place. I think we decide to go inside. Before going inside I spot a girl walking around, about my age. She has a spotlight and seems to be looking for something. It's not safe out here, the screeching sounds are getting louder and I have a feeling something bad will happen if she stays outside. I talk to her and she says she has been looking for the voices.... They come from no where, she says. I take her back to the beach so she's safe before I head back to the house in the forest. On the way there's a girl I meet who's called 'The Rat'. She isn't ugly or anything (quite the opposite), she's called that because of her skills in infiltration and hacking. She wears a hooded tight jumpsuit and there's something 'futuristic' about her. She takes me somewhere and the place is somehow not of this world... This part of the dream was a bit difficult to recall and even more difficult to describe.

      I'm in the house with the other 2 guys, it's dark outside and the room resembles my moms old kitchen before we renovated it. 'Grey Cash' is also there, she is apparently the mom of one of the guys I'm with. Grey Cash apparently needs to go outside and get something from the beach. Wait, what? That's like 30 minutes from here. She leaves though before I can rationalize anything. It's so dark and menacing outside though. I tell the other guys it's not safe outside, they agree. I say "I'll go out and get her. Well.... Not alone of course. That would be dumb" (knowing full well that there's only 3 of us and that the person on their own in a horror movie is usually the one to die). I'm basically trying to edge a second person into thinking that the logical thing to do is join me . I leave the room briefly to enter the lounge (can't recall why) and then return to the kitchen. Grey Cash is back and smiling as if she'd never left. What the? That's not right... My immediate thought is that something is wrong (like she's a ghost or something) and that she shouldn't be able to do that in a dream.
      In a dream? Uhh... Then I think "oh right this is a dream. Duh." I do a reality check and succeed, I'm still in the kitchen with the other people around me. I immediately try to do the water ball challenge that me and Emnition are doing. Heading over to the sink I cup my hands, planning to manipulate the already-present water droplets in the sink to coalesce into a ball. It works on the 3rd attempt. The ball of water floats between the space of my hands bobbing up and down. Grey Cash was spooking me out in the background as she still had the "Oooo I'm a ghost" dream plot going, threatening to make a nightmare out of a good dream. I turn to her and said 'Fuck off' casually, then flick my fingers at her and she went 'poof', disappearing instantly. Hot damn I'm good. I wake up, pretty happy I did the challenge
    3. #264 - Mutated animals

      by , 08-23-2016 at 08:14 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      I'm watching TV and it's a news channel reporting on a man who does tourist boat rides down a New Zealand river. He seems to be a bit 'out-of-control' because the boat is skimming against the rocky cliff on one side. He then rams the boat into a rockface, though I'd have expected more of an impact so I thought he put the brakes on or something..

      Next thing I know, I'm at the location and the story has progressed. He is wading the water, I'm with a news team and we're watching him as he struggles to dislodge his foot which is stuck. He gets free and continues walking off towards and orange life jacket that's wedged between a crack in the rockwall. Apparently that's why he was driving crazily as he was searching for it. Pretty dumb reason.
      I'm kind of the camera in a sense, so what I'm seeing is being conveyed back to the TV. I look down and see HUGE eel heads, there's heaps of them poking their heads out of the rocks in the water. It's incredible because it's a species that is endangered (shortfin silver eel or something)... I hop out of the water immediately, kind of shocked and grateful they didn't bite me. I hear some kind of news person talking into a camera about how we're at the site for the siting of the worlds first fresh water kangaroo. Yes.. FRESH WATER KANGEROO. What the hell? I turn to see a funny looking kangaroo doing a severely retarded paddle-jump through the water. Huh, guess it must be true. I then spot a few more kangaroos, but they all look like different species. Why are there so many different mutations in kangaroos occurring? But then my brain completely tricked me because the next time I look around there's a bunch of mutated seals. I didn't even notice the swap. There's a 4 eyed alien looking seal staring at me.. There's one that looks like it has the face of an asian. Then there's also one that looked almost exactly like a dog which barked at me, I ran away and it chased me. I then decided maybe it wanted me to pet it so I reached out, but someone nearby who had a real dog said that it was a seal and that I shouldn't pet it. I reeled my hands back as she said this, I see my hands in front of my face. Hmmm..
      I'm dreaming aren't I? I do a reality check by pushing my finger through the palm of my right hand, it stretches through.

      I'm in my room now, definitely dreaming. But this isn't my current room, it's my room from when I was a little kid with a few differences (colour of the room, bed positioning, bedside table and general room content). The dream starts to go dark, fuck. I better stabilize. I make huge force of willpower by straining my brain to hold the dream stable. It's like I was trying to forcibly shut off whatever mechanism causes you to wake up and it only managed to slow down the darkening. As I'm doing this I know it won't work for long and that I needed another course of action to follow it up with, something to restabilize the dream as it wasn't enough to just stay asleep. I decide to 'relax' and release the tension, the world must have been shaking before because everything seemed still all of a sudden. The room got a little bit lighter and less grainy. I look at the bedside table and see a mirror, except inside the mirror is a brighter room. I walk over, pick it up, and then push myself through head first. Half of me from the waist up is in this newer, brighter version of my room, the mirror is caught on my jeans. Damn it. I kind of convince the dream that this didn't happen and climbed into the room properly. Phew. My clothes are inside out though, and the room has a sort of inverted appearance, but the exit and windows are all in their normal places. I should probably do something... I decide to do the waterball challenge me and my dream buddy Emnition are trying. Man this is a long lucid. It feels like a very down-to-earth lucid, as if bending physics would be quite hard unless I did some tricky stuff. I try anyways, I cup my hands in the air as if to summon the water into a ball. I'm facing the open doorway at this point and the background kind of throws me off.. I turn around and re-attempt, facing a lighter and less cluttered background of my rooms wall. Then I say "Now I just need to condense the vapour from the surrounding air", I imagine how this would look in my mind... Particles flying towards a centre point between the space of my cupped hands.
      Oh look, I'm awake. I woke up very fast :/

    4. #255 - Sky beam / Force field

      by , 07-08-2016 at 09:04 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream - Sky Beam
      It's a post apocalyptic dream set in a scifi futuristic setting. I remember a part where I have a vision, a scene where I can see Earth from space and a huge beam of energy erupts from the Earth. It's a premonition about the end of the world which will occur in a few days. There was some kind of war against aliens which is why it's post-apocalyptic.
      I'm in a place that resembles my parents house, there's a bunch of survivors here and they're grouped together having some kind of discussion about how to live from now on. I walk up on top of a huge boulder and address the crowd, knowing that they won't believe me if I tell them we have to leave Earth. "I know you won't understand now, but in a few days time it will all be cleared' (I said something like that in a very heavy tone, it felt super intense). I also spotted in the distance a large beam of a different colour shooting into the sky, I knew it wasn't the same as the one in my premonition.
      There's a crashed old spaceship from the war with the aliens that we can escape on, but we need to work together to rebuild it.

      Dream - Force field
      I only remember a little about this dream.. It was a similar setting except by an arid cliff wall with the sun beating down on me and a group of people. There was a force field protecting our locale, I had to throw some kind of force field grenade outside it or something, can't really remember this part.
    5. #249 - Free the ghost and burn the bridge

      by , 06-20-2016 at 09:39 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      The dream begins with me and someone else running towards a house at night. We're trying to free the ghost of a girl who was murdered, she haunts the house we're heading to. We go inside and walk around for a while, I can't remember how but we avenge her spirit. I'm in the lounge with the ghost while my friend heads off somewhere. She looks about 17-18 with medium length Egyptian style black hair, she's quite attractive but I'm nearly 5 years her senior so I have an 'eh no thanks' thought going through my head. I sit down on the couch, it's a pretty simple square room which has either a beige or light yellow wallpaper to colour. She wants to thank me for helping her, so she flicks the lights off... It's pitch black and I can feel her getting closer to me, she kisses me but I have a feeling she's up to something. I turn the light back on and tell her I'm not interested, I say something like "I'll go check to see if my parents are ready to leave yet". I still felt some kind of evil about her, I didn't want to fall for her seductive ruse.

      I head into the next room, it's a lounge that resembles the one in my parents' house. My mum is sitting on the leather couch with my dad sitting on the arm of the chair, between them is a damply lit lamp that sets a heavy tone. It feels like they were talking about some adult problems before I walked in and interrupted. "Are we leaving soon?" I ask, "yes we're just about to head out" my mum replies. I get changed into my pj's, they have dinosaurs on them I think.. I feel like I'm a little kid and we're heading home after being out camping for a week. We're in the car now, I'm sitting in the back seat, my parents are in front with my dad driving. It's still dark outside, though not completely. There's a torrential downpour too... The road we're on is coastal, to the left is a rocky cliff rising up high while to the right is a rocky seawall with big waves lapping up against it. We drive around a bend on the road and an epic scene awaits, a huge shape bursts from the water. At first I'm unsure about what it is, but I recognize that it's something from Avatar the Last Airbender (it isn't...). I think to myself that it must be a multi-legged bug monster or the evil mecha episode, except it's happening live (it strikes me as odd that it's only just happening yet I've supposedly seen the episode). I get a closer look and realize it's the evil mecha episode, oh fuck. I remember how in the episode it gets chased by a good mecha and they collide near the bridge crossing, breaking the bridge. Fuuuuu... It would take forever to get home if the bridge broke :/. "DAD! Speed up! We have to get across the bridge!" I yell, hoping that I've convinced him despite knowing that I'm a kid and that no one believes kids.. He speeds up though, we're flooring it and the evil mecha is accelerating with a huge gush of water jetting into the sky from the speed its going at. We come to the turn at the bridge, my dad does a turn and break to skid the car to a stop (no easy feat with slick of water), we bump into a side wall slightly before accelerating again. The evil mecha has arrived at the bridge and turns around to face the approaching good mecha. Our car crossing the bridge, the torrential rain pelting the roof, the huge mechas shrouded by a thin mist as they charge towards each other. Everything happens in that moment, the mechas collide as the car touches the otherside of the bridge, a huge force explodes outwards and obliterates the bridge behind us. I'm thrown out of the car as it skids to a halt by the edge of road. I fly through the air and land in the ocean, there's something else that flew out with me though and I try to swim and get it. Fuck, it's too far... There's a dinghy nearby, I'm anxious about the water depth so I swim over to it. It's almost completely submerged, but atleast I put it under me to ward any sharks away. There's a rope attached and my parents start pulling me back to shore.

      There's a minor scene change, instead of heading back to the shore I'm in the water again. My parents are in the dinghy and I swim over, my dad wants to show me what to do in this sort of situation and is being all like "Oh so just in case this ever happens to you and you're on your own I'll show you what to do". He was just inferring it was good time to practice. The dreams ends here .
    6. #240 - Oh so powerful

      by , 05-10-2016 at 10:42 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Surprised how much I managed to write down in the morning.. I typed it out on my phone before I got up, it didn't feel like much to remember though. This will probably be the only way for me to write my dreams up now, since I'm rising at 5:30am and then I'm hustlin' and bustlin' around to get to work.

      I'm outside where there's green grass around, there's supposedly 3 classes (there's 3 of us). 2 of us are running around chasing the one another, they resemble Sterling and Lana from the show 'Archer'. They're just being goofy, I kind of see things in 3rd person next to the other class character. There's something about a hedge wall they're running around, it shifts and moves places which doesn't make much sense to me. I forget how, but 2 of the classes die and I'm the last one remaining. I think how silly it is, I'm not even the strongest. The other guy was super powerful and talented for his class but I ended up being the one to live (I seem to miss them or something).

      I'm in a cave now, there's a huge tombstone sized book latched across my back. I swing it off and plant it upright on the ground, then kneel before it. It has 'game-like' options displayed on it, oddly enough. Is it really a book? I'm quite powerful at this point, having gone a long way since my friends died. I'm trying to get some sort of power from here though.

      Now I'm at a place that resembles my old primary school, I'm brawling with this ginger white guy but he's not really a match for me (I don't think there's anything 'power' or 'magic' related going on either). We fight 2-3 times without really going hard enough to have a 'winner'. The guy is also a real douche, like SUPER douchey.

      I'm now in my house, just randomly sitting on the toilet in the bathroom with the door open (NO I'm not doing anything, the seats were down, I might have been brushing my teeth and too lazy to stand I think?). The mother of white ginger guy comes in, she's super hot and beautiful dark skinned woman, but a bit older than me (in her 30s I think? But still really hot). She gives me a bag of pills, it's supposed to be medicine for helping with my eating. Apparently she thought I had vomited because there was a bit of pumpkin in the sink. I have to explain to her that it was from when I rinsed my bowl, since I made a red curry with pumpkin in it (the bathroom is right next to my room, I don't do this but it's really plausible in RL). It's considerate of her to do that, she's nice. Much nicer than her douchey son. I get up and we walk out into the hallway, we're talking by my room and I kind of head her in there. She's in the doorway in front of me (I'm still in the hallway). I say how it's kind of her to give those to me, then say "But I'd much rather have you". She gets all bashful and blushes, I lead her further into my room intending to tease her. There's people in the house and it's broad daylight and we know we really SHOULDN'T, but it feels naughty . I start kissing her, we're in my room now and the door is wide open. We're still safe since I can't hear anyone down this end of the house. I sit on the bed and pull her onto my lap so she's riding. Kissing her again, she turns away shyly so I can't see her blushing. I make her turn back look at me, she's really pretty. We start having sex *somehow* through our clothes, enough to make us really want it but we have to stop before someone passes by. I then wake up.

      Sooo yeah, from goofy start to adventure, street brawling and sexy time. Twas good.
    7. #229 - Dream fragments

      by , 04-14-2016 at 12:57 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream fragments
      1- I remember being outside my house on the lawn, we just seeded the ground with new grass seeds IRL so the whole thing is actually just a wasteland of dirt currently. In my dream me and a friend had just walked there and all the grass was fully grown. It looked really cool and I was actually pretty happy with the results.

      2- I remember being on a stage where we were doing a play, the stage was lit and the audience area was completely dark. I apparently hadn't spend much time studying my lines, why would not study them? I was annoyed that I hadn't made better use of my time preparing for this.

    8. #214 - Ankh-Morpork / Kitchen anger / Lucid in the village

      by , 03-22-2016 at 05:47 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream 1 - Ankh-morpork
      I was in Ankh-Morpork (from Terry Pratchetts Discworld novels) and I was joining the Thieves Guild. I remember wandering the streets not far from the Mended Drum.

      Dream 2- Kitchen Anger
      I'm my parents house, in the kitchen. I'm really annoyed at my dad, he did something or said something frustrating as hell. Me and my mum are making breakfast as we talk and she's talking to me about not getting worked up over it, I go to the fridge and, with a spoon, get a gob-full of cream and eat it. It's the same kind of cream they have at the top of non-homogenized milk, but it's just sitting on the fridge shelf without even being on a plate.. And there's a lot of it, like tower of cream.
      My dad comes into the kitchen to make his breakfast, me and my mum finished whatever it was he was going to eat. He starts making bacon and eggs, geeze.. for breakfast, really? I think at some point he was done and I turned on the stove and he puts his hand down without looking and burns himself. FUUU damn it dad! I try turn the stove off quickly, what an idiot. At this point the flattee from downstairs is in the kitchen for some reason, and he has two friends with him. My mum is insinuating to me not to get annoyed at my dad in front of them because it would be embarrassing or something, though I feel the same way.

      Dream 3 - Lucid in the village
      I'm in the town area of where I live (it's part of the city, but there's so many trees out here that you wouldn't know it) and I'm walking by the bird cafe. There's people milling about and I start to tune into the fact that I'm dreaming... It comes slowly, the awareness building in me until I attain lucidity. Everything around me is crisp and detailed, really vivid. I can feel my arms clearly, I decide to walk forward and as I do so I notice a decreases in stability. Hm, I focus on the sensations in my arms which are intense.. Like all tingly and fuzzy. I start trying to think of what the TotM is but just can't seem to get access to my memories. I think I've stabilized enough now, I continue onwards and think about the TotM more. Eventually the feeling in my arms fades and I lose stability again, I then wake up.

      So close Emnition! Was a pain to be lucid and not be able to remember anything. It was really good for a lucid though, lots of detail like there was an old granny sitting on a chair by a table outside the cafe. Also there were people passing by in front of me to cross the road. Anyways, next tim
    9. #212 - Deck wars

      by , 03-17-2016 at 09:00 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      It all happened in my parents house, there were 2 teams split by the top deck and the downstairs. Also, the stairs which lead downstairs from the outside deck were in the old place (they've been moved since last year). I was on the top deck team, I kept my guard up as I had a feeling we'd be getting attacked soon. I hid in a corner by the door and just as one of the enemies approached the door I slammed my hand on the window of the door, right where his face was looking through. He gets jump scared and dashes backwards, I chase after him and in his panicked state he jumps off the deck to the bottom of the stairs and break his ankles. I won! Yay! But then I realize that I should probably get help.. I go call for my dad and he comes down the stairs in the wetsuit he uses for surfing.

    10. #200 + #201

      by , 02-14-2016 at 11:53 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      What an awesome dream to have on my 200th DJ, it was really stable and quite long. I entered that old 'cave-man mode' once I couldn't think of anything to really do.

      #200 - Telekinesis is a wonderful power
      I was in a hallway during day time, I followed the hallway until it led me to the back entrance of the building I was in. Ahead of me was a kid, I don't think we were supposed to be there since there was a wedding event going on or something and only the staff were allowed back here. A waiter comes out the back in the standard dark trousers, dress shirt and lower waist apron. I wrap an invisibility cloak around me and the kid, the waiter is suspicious though and gets some dust to blow into the air. He's trying to detect us, we hold our breath until he gives up and leaves. Phew!
      I talk to the kid a bit about how invisible people can be really difficult to fight, "I'll teach you a spell just incase you need to use it on invisible people" I say. I raise my wand (where did I get this?) "Ignitus!" I say with force, a bright blue flash radiates out in a delicate fashion, I show him twice I think. I talk about how invisibility is easily countered otherwise it'd be a real pain to deal with, many mages have come up with ways of dealing with people who use it, the spell I taught him is just one of many. I think I walk outside a bit and sit on the grass, there's a gravel driveway for cars to come up to the building nearby. I turn around and head up to the entrance to the building, as I go inside I notice that it's night time.
      I'm aware enough to become lucid and I turn around and head back outside. I'm in a botanical garden with the sky dark above me, there's some white-lighting from a lamp in the garden. I decide to give telekinesis a go for the dream challenge me and Emnition have going. I look to the side and see four chairs lined up (I assume they were for the aforementioned wedding gig), raising my hand I will them to lift up... Obediently they all fly up a metre of the ground, I'm a little amazed at how natural it feels and how stable the dream is. I swiftly swing my arm left, hurling the chairs with an intense force directly into the brick walls of the building I came from. Next I look at 2 nearby large green rubbish bins, raising both hands they rise before me.. I scrunch my hands into fists and the bins crumple and compact. I release them and they fall to the ground as a plastic heap .
      Next I look at a wooden park bench + table nearby, once again I telekinetically lift the object. This time I want to rip it in half. Using both my hands I make a ripping motion, but instead of getting torn in two the bench has this strange glitch effect. The two halves I intended to split kind of rolled outwardly without separating or tearing in any fashion. Bah, whatever. I decide to move on from telekinesis and find something else to do in the dream, it's been going for at least a minute already and is quite stable, though not the most exceptionally vivid (still really good though). I decide to try summon my first ex girlfriend, intending to complete that old dream goal which I no longer care about (though at this point in time I thought I did). I call her name and walk around the edge of the botanical garden, I round a corner expecting her to be there but no luck. I try again, calling her name twice more before rounding the other corner. I see a figure up ahead, success! I run on up to her, her back is facing me. I swivel her around and start flirting + kissing, she's really receptive and things progress instantly Things got sexual pretty quick as cave-man mode consumed me, it was a little more vivid at this point which is great for obvious reasons unfortunately like in most sex-dreams I woke up before getting properly satisfied.

      Dream 1 - Candy store lucid
      It's night time and I'm in a small well-lit candy store. I turn to my right to see my friend Daniel and his gf Josie bouncing around in an action that looks like they were having sex. They weren't, thankfully, otherwise I would have felt pretty awkward. Apparently it was some new dance craze O_O I head over and start talking with them, there's so much candy around us. I think Josie and Daniel both work here since they're behind the counter. I seem to realize that I'm dreaming, upon this realization the dreamscape changes dramatically but I don't even notice. The light in the room goes out and beside me is a cute chick but she isn't very busty. I'm pretty much in cave-man mode as I instantly decide that I want her, since it's a dream I decide to enhance her bust with my omnipotent dream potential, I place my right hand on her left breast and will it grow . Unfortunately the dream wasn't particularly vivid or stable, I had intended for both breasts to become really nice but instead only one grew... And pretty weirdly. It kind of just shot out, it was longer and harder than it should have been. I became aware of how dark the room actually was and looked up at the the girls face, she really is quite skinny. There's a certain evil feeling coming out of the dream that I tuned into."Ugh, well if I get her other boob to grow then take her shirt off I can just rely on the dream to correct the weirdness" is what I thought. But before I could give it a go I ended up 'waking up'. In real life I was lying on the couch and when I woke up I was the wrong way round, I had this feeling that I was drooling intensely and was slobbering everywhere. I then checked my phone and saw a message from my ex saying "Hey! Hows it going? I really love you and your fossilized wood stuff ..." there was more to the text but I can't remember it. I had told her about all the fossil wood and stuff I had found on my recent trip, which is actually true in real life. But I stopped as I read it and was like "Uhhh what?! O_O", I was confused about why she would say 'I love you' in that sentence and found it a little inappropriate. I had a feeling that she meant it as a friend but it still felt weird, I didn't manage to click to the fact that it was a dream.

      Dream 2 - Baby crazy
      I remember looking after my daughter, she was just wandering around in my parents house and it was when she was quite a bit younger than she is now. We entered the kitchen and I was practically hover handing to make sure she didn't fall over, she wandered into the kitchen cupboard and my mum came in and distracted me somehow. I was really annoyed because it was somehow inconsiderate and I wasn't able to talk with her because I had to look after my daughter. I turned back to look at my daughter but she was gone. I instantly freaked out and we started looking for her, at this point I looked around at my surroundings and saw my cat Peaches lounging around, as I looked around I kept seeing lots of her. I rounded the corner and looked down the stairs fearing that my daughter had fallen... I was really scared. I look down and saw at the bottom of the stairs... My cat peaches O_O. Lying on top of another Peaches, there were so versions of my cat.

      I woke up and next to me was my cat sitting there sleeping...

      Dream 3 - Old friend
      I must have had a dream much earlier on in the night where I had discovered my friend Aaron, it was insinuated somehow that he was dead and I made a burial for him (thought there was no body I think).

      I'm in an institute in what I think is post-apocalyptic (non-zombie, possibly nuclear). It was a concrete facility at the bottom of a deep crater. I have a feeling there was a water on one side. I can't recall what I did while I was inside this facility but I remember that there was a doctor who decided to break the rules and tell my I had to GTFO. He punched a button and sprinted, dragging me and throwing me through an opening outside, then jumped to follow. A door slammed down behind us and we high tailed the hell out of there, it was really intense. I think they were planning on capturing me unawares and using me as a guinea pig (I have a feeling they experimented on lots of animals too). We made it to the top of the crater and sat side by side... It was a calm moment, the person next to me was no longer that doctor, but instead it was Aaron. We talked, I hadn't seen him in so long. Then it dawned on me... And I punch him really hard. "I thought you were dead!!" Tears instantly start flowing and I'm consumed by this extreme sadness, I'm holding him with one hand while the other is on the ground keeping me stable during my emotional fit.
      I wake up, a little stunned by the intensity of the dream.

      True SC1
      I woke up and had some small memories of dreamlets but nothing solid enough to put on paper. I did a WBTB to let the cat out of my room and also to eat some apple crumble (because why not? )

      I don't usually wake up at this time so this is the first I've woken up for the 1st sleep cycle of the night.

      SC2) 02:32
      Dream - Boar hunt
      I was in my house, yet it didn't exactly resemble it at first. It seemed that we were on a camp (university camp?) and I found out there was a huge pig/boar running around in the house. I decide to deal with it, it's in a small room that has a refrigerator and other food stuff in it. I knock the boar unconscious somehow and wonder if I should put it into the freezer and let it die that way? Hmm oh well I'll leave it for now. I decide to go ask for help, I head outside and on my way out of the small room I see a stack of bagged pig meat and blood and guts. When I get outside I see 3 guys and maybe 4 girls all sunbathing. The guys have their shirts off and the girls are bikinis, they're all lying on beach towels on the back deck of my house (though it's clear it's not my 'house' if that makes sense). I also remember one of the guys who was called Alex Sigley. I speak up and ask if someone wants to go half with me on the boar I just killed, 3 of the guys say yes but none of the girls want any. One girl then gets up with a sigh as she knows how to deal with the boar (butchering it or something) which is what I wanted, I have no clue how to deal with this thing.

      My current WBTB alarm is set to 02:00 and I need to set it to 02:30 I think, as that seems to be the right time to wake up.

      SC3) 04:18
      Dream - Bomb shelter
      I'm on a road near where I live there the road forks off. There was quite a few people here on the road with me and we were chatting (though I don't remember who they were). We must have been doing some sort of roadworks. Things were pretty happy during most of the dream but towards the end a train arrived. It turned the corner out of one of the roads that forked off and headed onto our road (this is impossible, and also there's no train there in RL). We alert each other to the train and head over to the pavement, I have to pull along a retard who was clapping his hands. There's a person doing the announcements, he berates us and I notice we're missing some people. The missing people had been 'dealt with'. "Keep away from the manhole cover!" the announcer announced angrily. I can tell he's evil. The manhole cover he spoke of was a sort of 'time capsule' for the rich, so they could be protected in the case of nuclear fallout (Fallout 4 reference I guess). There's a bunch of rich folk (who look like they're from the 1950s) streaming out of the train I think, but they had also supposedly just exited the manhole, but they were walking towards the manhole (rather than away from it), and also seemed to be walking past it. (Poor dream logic but I didn't catch on so no lucid ).

      SC4) 05:58
      Dream - Balding
      I'm in the bathroom looking into the mirror, WHAT THE HELL. My hair has bald patches all through it! Ugh, oh no... This can't be real? I have a FA and I'm in the bathroom again, but this time my hair is normal. Phew, it was just a dream . I keep looking at the mirror just to make sure, my reflection is quite accurate. But as I look at my eyes... My iris' don't seem right, they look like solid green disks with a black pupil that isn't quite in the center. Hmm??? It changes a couple times, why is it doing that? Oh wait, I must be dreaming. It all seems so obvious now. I take a step back and my vision is that of a severely drunk person, why can't I see well? I decide on going straight to doing telekinesis on the toilet. I raise my hand and will the toilet to float but to no avail. Meanwhile I'm still seeing the world in a sort of drunken state. Geeze maybe that's why I can't do telekinesis? Oh! It must be because I went cross-eyed looking at my reflection earlier? ( best dream logic) I 'uncross' my eyes and the dream becomes less shaky. That's better. I walk out of the bathroom and to my room, I try to do telekinesis again but my vision kind of becomes a bit drunk once more and I'm unsuccessful at telekinesis.

      SC5) 07:00
      Dream - Restaurant
      I remember being in a restaurant and I think I'm an employee. The restaurant has a dark wooden texture and has an appropriate dim mood-light setting for dining out. I'm at the checkout talking to an Indian girl who is a fellow employee, I think we're talking about something and she might be teaching me how to work here. Her face is next to mine, side by side with a bit of a gap between us. She says something and it's a bit flirtatious and she moves in to kiss me. Our lips touch and I'm like 'Oh shit, have I just cheated on my gf? Well... I'm in the middle of the kiss, I'll wait until it's over' (for some reason I thought this was the only option ). The kiss was very vivid, I remember closing my eyes to it and feeling the texture of her lips, they soft and have a smooth feeling which made me think it wasn't quite right for how kissing should feel. She gets into the kiss, I wake up before it finishes.

      I tried writing this down but all I wrote was 'Kiss in restaurant, I'm an employee'. I must have really struggled to stay awake O_O

      Dream fragment - Disgusting Toes
      I'm in the living room at home and see that my mum has just gotten home from work. She's taking her shoes off as I go and talk to her about my toes. They have these absolutely revolting, putrid, disgusting bubbly veruca wart growths on them, mostly on my big left toe, the bottom of the toe next to it and a couple other toes. My mum doesn't take it seriously enough, can she see how disgusting it looks? I'm a little stressed and anxious about the whole thing. I remember that I may have gotten them from an earlier dream in the night where I was running at night time with a couple people. Something happened and there was broken glass on the ground which had the blood of someone else I was with on it. I got a few shards in my toes and that's how my foot got infected it seems.
    12. #182 - Home / WILD

      by , 12-18-2015 at 05:56 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream - Home
      I'm at home in my room, yet outside is the back deck rather than the front deck and sitting at a round wooden table are two girls drinking coffee. I'm trying not to be caught I think, as I think me and another girl are doing 'things' in my room. Are the deed is done I think I clean up my room a bit, and I remember that the 2 girls outside had vivid outfits, one I think was wearing blue and yellow gym gear and the other was wearing red and blue. The curtains (which were drawn so no one could see into my room) were the same as the ones I had when I was a kid, with little animals and stuff on it. I think my cat Peaches was in my room too.

      SC2) 04:50
      Dream - WILD
      After waking up from my last dream I didn't manage to get back to sleep. I had done a WBTB and must have woken myself up too much. After rolling around in bed for over an hour I ended up getting visuals and sensations but I didn't manage to fully transition to a dream. Eventually I realize I'm in a dream right as it started ---> I'm at home in the family room sitting on the sofa, there's a few people and everything is very realistic. Someone says something which slightly deviates from what I remember to be the truth which spurs me to do a RC. It succeeds and I'm a little unsure, this is so real, how can it be a dream? I reality check several times and confirm that it's definitely a dream so I walk on outside and try to stabilize (even though it's actually quite stable already) by shouting "Stabilize!" loudly, yet it isn't as loud as it should be. I try this several times, I'm hoping to boost the stability and depth of the lucid dream but it backfires as I end up destabilizing the dream.

      by , 12-15-2015 at 02:14 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      SC1) 02:02
      Dream 1 - Future
      I remember that it was like I travelled to the future and my name was 'Shin'. This is the exact storyline from a light novel I'm reading, 'The New Gate'. After arriving it turns out I have been a leader or something which is why I was so strong.. I think? Most of this is learned through observations while being guided around town, I'm trying to stay on the down low.

      Dream 2 - Avalanche
      I'm on a snowy mountain walking by a wooden hut on my left, to my right is a valley that rises up into more snowy peaks on the other side. Some kind of loud noise (maybe?) goes off and I immediately think that the other side of the valley will have an avalanche. Sure enough, cracks in the white snow start appearing but they spread, "oh ****". I originally thought I was safe on this side, but the cracks spread out in front of me. There's going to be an avalanche... I turn tail and run, trying to get beyond the collapsing slope but I'm just not fast enough. I'm sliding on the snow down slope and I start running atop the snow in an attempt to not get swallowed up by the snow. Even this fails me, and the snow soon consumes me as it roils downhill. I've stopped and I think I'm a couple metres beneath the snow, I won't be able to breath.. I need to do something! I end up waking up.

      SC5) 06:56
      Dream 3 - Survivor
      This dream seems heavily inspired by Fallout 4 at least in theme.
      I'm in my hometown in the basement of the arts building (though the basement doesn't exist like it did in the dream). The basement was dark with stone walls, it continued for some distance like it was some sort of tunnel. The place was dark, dirty and damp. There had been some kind of apocalypse event and there were maybe 3 others in the basement with me. One was an dark skinned old man, another was a crippled white woman in a wheel chair, I can't remember the last person.. Oh and I also had a little white dog. I was in third person, the person I was looking at (me) was the dad from 'Mr Robot'. He was in what can only be described as an empty mining shaft or elevator shaft. I/He was unconscious and there was a ladder behind him. There were people on the surface world who were kind of like the orchestrators of the apocalypse, they end up doing some douchey things. They act like we need to be quarentined, and they end up killing my little dog. They send down this machine via the elevator shaft, it descends and looks like it will crush me but as it descends it gets caught on the ladder which crumples slightly beneath the pressure. So close, the machine is only an inch away from the unconscious me. I wake up around this point, I think I had been tied to a chair or something, and managed to get out. While I'm still sitting a saw blade swishes past my head but can't get me. I decide to move now, and start climbing on the machine (it's really big height-wise, which reaches all the way up to the top of the shaft). This part is quite difficult to describe, I remember the details of climbing up through this place quite well but it'd be too hard. I remember when I was close to the top that there was someone else with me, another guy about my age, I think it may have been Daniel. We're at the top and look around us at our home village... It's night time and there is a kind of festive vibe to the lights around. There's a bunch of cars passing by on the road in front of us, I remember the red tail lights looked very vivid as they passed by. I think me and Daniel may have spoken, but we didn't need to say much. We knew we had to run or we'd be caught, so we ran across the road and started heading off in different directions. I woke up as I reached the other side of the road

      by , 12-02-2015 at 08:42 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream - Driving about (woke up at 3:00am)
      I'm in my parents house, I think I somehow made the alarm go off and it's wailing loudly... I punch in the code to turn it off but nothing happens. Argh, I must have put the wrong code in. Everyone is waiting outside. Why is the alarm going off anyways?
      I remember there being a Tuatara at some point...
      Later on I'm in the car with my mom, she's driving and we turn into a house to pick some people up. The house looks simultaneously like my neighbours and our house combined. We're waiting for my dad and some other person to hurry up, they should already be ready by now. They must have forgotten we were heading out, there's no lights on in the house at all. It's already 9pm.. Geeze :/. We beep the horn loudly and my mum is impatient now, she's driving in circles in the driveway of the property. I look up at the window of my dads room (it's not his room anymore) and see that the light suddenly turns on. Finally, I think to myself that they now know we're here at least. I tell my mum that they've noticed us. We start talking and discuss her going back to university. She wants to study some ecology papers as she's found that she's interested in that field of study. I tell her that I can help her review her essays if she needs me to.

      Dream experience: 5 (pretty vivid and the dream felt long. I remembered it pretty clearly and I didn't wake up feeling foggy, which usually leads to me forgetting my dreams).
      Dream awareness: 1 (not enough to be aware that I was dreaming, but there was some definite conscious thinking involved)

      I think my cat woke me up from this dream... She jumped on top of my face.
      After I woke up I decided to get up for a while, so I spent 40 minutes researching random stuff and then reading a comic before heading back to sleep.

      I also remember a really strange WILD last night where I seemed to naturally just slip into a dream consciously. But the whole thing felt delirious and uncontrollable, I had visuals at first but they disappeared. The interesting thing was that I was more involved with other sensations like touch and sound (the sound was more like a humming noise).

    15. #164 - Plane spinning

      by , 11-24-2015 at 10:43 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Once again I was too busy during the day and didn't get the chance to write this up until now (~10:30pm)

      Dream - Plane Spinning
      I was at my parents house where there was some sort of test going on, designed to determine your 'spirit power' or something. I remember walking from the kitchen into the lounge and I'd finished the test in this moment, my spirit was apparently the best. This high spirit meant I could qualify as a teacher which was what my friend Zac had wanted to be. Though, I wanted to be a bounty hunter which a high spirit wasn't really necessary for. There were other 'skills' which you needed to get these jobs too but I don't recall there being any specifics.

      Some time later I think we must be outside on the deck by the lounge, we're listening to something about bouncy balls. I look above me and peer at the sky, seeing a powerful stream of air flowing visibly in the sky. This part stuck out to me visually as I don't think I'd seen anything like it before and it was pretty intense looking. Besides me is an old school mate, Jeff. I alert him to the air streaming above us but he isn't interested, he just wants to learn about bouncy balls. Suddenly there's a big plane which flies in from that air stream in a nose-dive. It pulls up and levels out but the entire plane is spinning very very very fast. I remember thinking that even if they stopped spinning, the passengers would be dead from the intensity of the spin. Its wings look munted and it soars over my house (within like 20m) towards a tree. If it can't pull up the plane is screwed I think... I feel like there was a bit of dream glitch here, the plane collides with the tree and breaks so branches, somehow it stops spinning but then it's further back and it has to pull up now and go over the tree. Like it had two chances?..
