    1. #193 - Shopping / Shannara

      by , 01-23-2016 at 06:39 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream 1 - Shopping
      I remember being outside of the mall chilling out on a seat, I believe I had a bag of stuff I had bought. I noticed my ex girlfriend shopping in a Pagani shop for clothes. There's also a group of random girls (maybe late high school) that she gets annoyed about because she doesn't want to talk to them or something? They're outside and my ex has to wait until they go before it's safe to leave. Mean while she continues to change clothes while I just chill, every time I look back at her I see that she's wearing something new. Short shorts (hot damn), jeans, etc. The group of girls walks into the Pagani shop too now, my ex looks through the window and sees them entering and looks at me showing how frustrated she is with the girls. I decide I'll go walk in and say hi properly.

      Dream 2 - Shannara
      I remember that I'm in the world where the Shannara chronicles take place. I watched the first episode of the tv series yesterday and it seemed to effect my dreams . In the post-apocalyptic scenario I was traveling with Allanon, the princess, the rover and maybe the half-elf Will. Something happens between the characters, there's another group where I think Allanon had travelled with the leader for a time. One of the leaders underlings got upset when someone passed away and blamed it on Allanon. The place we were in at the time was this huge abandoned underground base that was built to protect people from nuclear attacks. One of the characters showed the blue elfstones to another character, who acted stunned and said 'I need some fresh air'. Only, that person then secretly took the elfstones and left.. The underling who blamed Allanon at this point had a hissy fit and set a nuke to rain down on us. Alarms start ringing and the doors to the base close up. There's a certain "Oh no! That person is still outside!" (the person with the elfstones). Allanon looks up at the closing doors, he's flabbergasted.. The idea that so much life will be destroyed saddens him. I also remember a 'space-view' of the weapon launching the nuke, it had these huge hangar doors much like the ones we were being protected by in the base. We're all wondering what to do now that we've noticed the person stole the elfstones. Apparently the rover girl switched them by covering the real stones in black soot and handing the girl 3 other stones. This part confuses me as I was pretty sure it'd be hard to make any pebble resemble an elfstone :/. I don't catch on that it's a dream though.
    2. #174 - The Mall / Animal Alarms

      by , 12-06-2015 at 08:28 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Dream 1 - The Mall (02:00)
      I remember sitting at the mall thinking that I had a chance to be chosen for something. There seemed to be limited spaces (about 4) and they were selected by a god-like figure. I think the area I was sitting in was the outside courtyard in the new segment at the mall. There were some emotions of anxiety I think about whether or not I'd be selected, I knew I had a chance, but I was still nervous because I wanted to be chosen.

      Dream 2 - Animal Alarms (07:00)
      In the same courtyard as the previous dream I'm at a meat restaurant that me and my parents went to yesterday. My mum was to my left and my dad was in front of me (the same as the seating was in RL). We had asked someone about these animal shaped alarm clocks and they went to get someone to explain it to us. Hmm? A little girl comes up and explains everything to us, she starts listing down the different colours and shapes of animals available. I think she had to do it as like a learning thing for her school or something, but I was impressed by how she memorized so much. I only recall 2 of the different animals, the beetle and the giraffe, but there were many others. I don't think I was listening properly and zoned out when she was talking and then zoned back in when she was finished.

      I think the animal alarms dream happened a bit earlier in the night but I managed to remember it when I was getting out of bed. Also my dreams seemed to be restricted to the mall, probably because I spent almost my entire day having to meet people there. I had a few beers which affected my recall too ^_^. The intensity of waking up and writing a full dream out on paper is a bit strenuous on the sleep cycle, but it seems to be working really well.

      I didn't manage to get 3 dreams (it was the last night needed to complete my dream goal) so it's reset again.
    3. #140 - Gym / The law

      by , 10-26-2015 at 08:58 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)

      Dream 1 - Gym
      I remember being on the pathway near the gym and looking out over the nearby green grass rugby field. There are the typical huge trees that are spaced alongside the walkway, but I don't recall actually doing anything

      Dream 2 - The law
      I forgot the better part of the dream and only remember the ending. I seem to be running after someone in the mall. I think I might be a girl? O_O. There is someone who is with me and while we're on the chase we pass through a clothing store. The store clerk is a young person who does something rude (like purposely gets in our way or pushes us).. This pisses me off, there are apparently laws against people like me hitting people like him (possibly sexism related?). My partner thinks we should just leave but I get this sudden 'I ain't taking shit from you' attitude . "Let's get him for that" I say, and trip up another young guy (he had a surfer kind of blonde afro hairstyle and a few pimples) who was just walking into the store. The guy stumbles forward and slams into the store clerk. The store clerk is on the ground in front of a changing room so I step over and casually open the door, slamming it into his face brutal. Apparently if a shop door hits someone then it isn't the fault of the customer, it's the store clerks fault ^_^ there are some weird rules in this dream. I seem to be a guy again (phew) and I need to go toilet. I'm with a few friends (John, Dave and another guy called Fraser) and I tell them I'm going to the restroom. I use the urinal and the others decided they need to go to, they all come and take a leak. For some reason I keep on going for ages, I started first and finished last ^^ such a weird dream.

      non-lucid , dream fragment
    4. #132 - Landslide / Horrible Scream

      by , 10-17-2015 at 10:45 PM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)

      Dream Fragment - an ex
      Seem to remember being in a tent or something, a girl I knew in high school that I hooked up with once was there. Her bf was around and I remember thinking that I would have to reject her or something?

      Dream 1 - Landslide
      I'm at my parents house (I think this scene is coming up more because I'll be heading home in a month), and I get the feeling the house is unstable. I was looking at the house and the wooden support beams seemed so weak, I thought of how we would need to add more support to counter the chances of it sliding downhill. Then something crazy happens, it's like the dream doesn't even know what it wants to do. The house apparently undergoes a landslide, but it's more like the lawn has been ripped up in a strip parallel to the house. The apple trees are on this strip of lawn too. Me and my dad immediately jump into action, we absolutely have to push this strip of land back uphill. He's on the far left and I'm on the far right. We lift it up and push as hard as we can, this thing realistically must weigh more than a couple elephants. So strong O_O. It's weird because when I look over to my dads side we've reached the top of the slope around the middle of the lawn, but the apple tree is still where it originally was on the lawn. We have to push the apple tree on the lawn strip over the apple tree on the lawn itself... We have two apple trees in RL but this still doesn't make sense. My dad shouts to roll the lawn over the top of the tree. It's an epic struggle but we succeed. My mum is apparently stressed out and having a glass of wine inside the house to calm down . We have such rotten luck apparently (in RL my parents got charge some several thousand for some screw up with a company that wasn't their fault) and my dad says that we must be cursed. When he says this I think of Japanese customs and how in our western culture we don't pay respect to house gods. The dream scene changes, now there is a little house god (I seem to be thinking of it as a little childs ghost) next to me who I interact with, I seem to be inside too. The place doesn't look like my parents house and has a nice wooden floor. There is another child ghost that intrudes into the house gods territory which it isn't supposed to do. This ghost has black hair.

      Dream 2 - Horrible Scream
      Argh... This dream I woke up from with this horrible scream echoing in my head. I was at the mall in Auckland and my daughter and dad were with me. I was looking after my daughter for the day but anytime that she got upset she would let out the most annoying cry, it was more like the most frustrating alarm clock sound. It was a shrill pulse-cry that wasn't even slightly like how a child should cry. Anyways... We were around the entrance to the mall after having been driven there by my dad. My daughter was upset because she wanted to be with her mum. I remember feeling the sudden gaze of the people around being drawn to the public display of my crying child, I've mostly grown to ignore this kind of judgement in RL. I comfort my daughter and let her know she's okay, she still cries a little bit though. I see a baby walking past behind her, it stops, looks in our direction and its face starts contorting into a crying face. My god, what the hell? I absolutely can't let my daughter see this as I think it will make things worse. My mum (my daughters grandmother) shows up and my daughter calls her "Kora" which is supposed to be her mums name with a weird accent. I don't click to the fact that she called her by the wrong name. My mum seems to be able to calm her down a bit. This dream was somehow nice but stressful ^_^
    5. #99 - lots of familiar people

      I had a lot of dreams last night... At one point I was helping some friends who got their kayak stuck in a river, I jumped around acrobatically and reached it, then pushed it down towards them. There was a wooden deck with a roof next to this river which we sat down on, my daughter sat on my lap and began singing to me while we were all just hanging out.

      Another one is where I was with my close friends Sam and Daniel, I can't recall much but I think we were in a mall and were walking around into shops, I saw my mum there too while she was looking at jewelery..

      A lot of familiar faces last night

    6. #53 - Wandering the school-mall

      Last night I nearly had a WILD, felt myself going into the dream and then I was like "Um what do I do" since I haven't got a clue how to WILD and it kind of just happened by accident. I got caught up in a conversation inside my head with my girlfriend and I thought she was there with me (she is in another town atm) so I tried to tell her that she was distracting me. I then got really fidgety, I need to itch and scratch my arms and neck and hair, then I felt like I had to roll over and in less than 30 seconds with all this occurring I had completely lost it
      So I still haven't had a WILD yet :/. Also I had terrible dream recall last night, only recalling the last dream I had.

      Dream 1 - Wandering the school-mall
      I'm in school and it's lunch time, I saw my friend leave before me and decided I'd try find him and hang out, since I'm a transfer student and he's my only friend. I seem to remember him having tanned skin and short black hair but I never saw his face. I walk upstairs and see a group of people I'm familiar with, they're playing ball, I continue on up another flight of stairs. Now I'm in the mall, which is a part of the school apparently. I walk through the mall, it's got calm yellow lighting and the scenery is quite nice looking, like it's been polished or something. As I'm walking I meet a couple of guys who want to play ball, and I seem to be holding 2 balls, 1 is a basketball and the other is some other kind of ball that I didn't want to use. I throw the ball to one of the guys but he couldn't catch it and it went behind him and crashed into a shop. He runs and picks it up, then throws it back, I catch it then throw it to the other guy and yet again it crashes into another shop. I no longer want to play the ball game, since I don't want a teacher to tell me off. The guys are annoyed at me and say something like "We want to keep playing!", I turn around and see a teacher where we had just been playing so I continue on again and ignore the 2 guys. As I'm walking back down the mall to the stairs, I pass by a window where I realize my friend is in, catching a peripheral vision glance at him. I think that he's having dinner with his girlfriend so I don't want to intrude and continue on (this time the friend looked like my flatmate O too, instead of the randomized classmate at the start of the dream).
    7. #38 - River, rain, and a cave/In my robe at the mall

      Black: Non-dream

      Red: Lucid

      Tried SSILD again last night, set my alarm for 3:25am. I rolled around in bed a while trying to coax myself to get up, 20 minutes later I did.

      Dream 1 - River, rain, and a cave
      I'm inside a cave, the ground has dryish dirt on it, it's pretty dark inside because there isn't a light source and it's a rainy day outside. I walk to the exit and look outside, the entrance is blocked by a flowing shallow river (knee-thigh deep). I apparently decided I wanted to leave the cave, and headed into the river which had rounded rocks on the bottom, making it hard to wade through. The river only spanned a short 10 metres wide. I looked back down the river and at the cave behind me too, the cave I was in was apart of a large rocky wall, it looked almost unnaturally hollowed out. I managed to cover about 8/10th of the river and was about to reach the riverbank but woke up.

      Dream 2 - In my robe at the mall
      Me and my close friend D are at the shopping mall walking around. I suddenly realize I'm in my robe! I head to a nearby store and buy a blue shirt, some shorts, and a red unbuttoned flannel shirt. For some reason this dissatisfies me, and I tell my friend D to go on without me while I go get some 'cool' clothes. I head off to a different clothing store, this one has nice wooden floors and tall wooden shelves, the shop is quite big. I see to my left a bunch of shirts on sale, but they look like they're for kids, so I go further into the shop and keep searching. I either forgot the rest or woke up.

      2 exams are over and I got 2 weeks to go until my next one, I started doing RCs again today and will be firing up my determination too
