      Another nap dream which was longer than needed because I had two hours of sleep today and set an alarm for the nap, but fell back asleep. Glad I got my eight hours sleep anyways

      In my dream I spontaneously traveled to the Netherlands to go to the cinema with my best friends from high school (coincidentally asked me to go to the film today) we get to the cinema and joke around, there's this goth-alt looking woman who looks like a woman I worked with before at a tech festival as well as the woman who works at a bar in Berlin who's slightly disturbed and annoyed by our behaviour and takes me out of the group because she trusts me the most. We go to a private room and she tells me she's giving me access to the projectors in the building which are big television screens with her face on it, I get to access them when her eyes on the photo are at a certain position. I get on my phone and edit the settings of the projection, having access to a bunch of trip-hop music videos she's made.

      I walk back to my friends with a smug look on my face as if the woman took me to a room alone with her to make love to her, my friends all walk up to me like "What did you do???" before my friends are being brought home by a parent, around this time I got a bit aware that things weren't adding up as 1) my friends can drive and 2) it suddenly hit me that I traveled to the Netherlands from Berlin with lord knows what money and had no idea how to travel back. I go to my family home in the Netherlands where my mom meets me normally as if I still lived there saying "Where did you go??"

      Then moments before I woke up a "scene selection" screen appeared before my eyes that looked like like this:

      • -----
      • -----
      • cinema kino
      • family home zuhause
      • -----
      • -----

      As if I hadn't "unlocked" the other locations
      I then suddenly woke up and wrote all of this down here, that scene selection screen unironically is making me wonder if maybe we really are living in a simulation or matrix as it seemed like I was placed in a scenario, which I technically was lol

      Dream was in Dutch.

      Edit: this is what the "scene selection" screen looked like:
    2. Nights of Saturday 3/25/23 and Sunday 3/26/23

      Lost the recall on these, but I definitely had some content upon waking. Still haven't invested into finding a good solution for being too lazy in the morning to record. They seem to fade so darn fast. To be fair, we had some pretty busy evenings this weekend, so I can hardly blame myself for this result. But still. Wish the recall was better.

      Hypnagogic Sunday afternoon nap, I don't remember what time I woke up or fell asleep.

      Basically, I walked into some sort of city council museum type of building. The interior was made out of large sand coloured stone bricks, but not necessarily in a brutalist architecture type of way, more like those museum interiors. Kinda like the backrooms, but in larger rooms made out of stone.
      As I was walking through the hallway, I walked past an indoor playground which had no children playing. I then walked up this stairway, a black woman wearing a light salmon-crimson coloured tracksuit caught up to me and walked up the big stairway. The weird part was that the stairs just led up to the ceiling, like it ended into the ceiling you couldn't go up. The woman in front me had walked up the stairs, and when I looked away she was suddenly on the ground again besides the stairs. As if she jumped off or simply walked through them.

      At this point it clicked for me: I was dreaming! I quickly remembered this hand movement that the YouTuber IamLucid always does to check if he's dreaming and my hand went through my other hand!
      Using this rare opportunity of being aware that I was, in fact, dreaming but had not yet awaken I finally tried use this opportunity to explore the dream world. I'm pretty sure this isn't officially a lucid dream, but I was definitely concious.

      This is kinda cringe, but when I was younger, I had this imaginary friend called Elise. Now that I was able to control my dream, I tried to use this opportunity to get in touch with her and meet her physically.
      I walked back to the entrance of the "museum" and there she was! For whatever reason she was taller than me, but it was her! She walked to the washing line that was hanging behind her on the entrance and I even saw people walking by in the street outside. She grabbed a white bedsheet and wrapped it around me, then hugged me from behind before pressing me against the floor. Feeling her apply pressure to my head and back as she pressed me deeper into the floor I could physically feel the floor against my face as welll as her body against my back. I then slowly felt myself waking up.

      I refused to wake up, though which led me to keep my eyes closed in the same position hoping I could return to dreaming, it didn't work unfortunately.
      Just laid there for maybe ten minutes just visualising dreamlike images but I was too awake to dream again.

      Funny thing was that when I was pressed into the ground lying on my stomach, I woke up in the exact position, but lying on my back.

      It was nice to experience, though.

      I sat in a Dutch train while complaining about remakes of movies, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for example, but the idea of Zoey 101 and Victorious remake or a shot-by-shot, movement by movement remake of Iron Man (which I haven't seen) with an Iron Woman instead.

      The train kept randomly stopping and the announcer said that it might take three hours instead of the normal 30 minutes. I was getting claustrophobic feelings because you couldn't exit the train and every random moment the train stopped riding it felt like it was standing still for longer. To the point I started to get worried it will get hit by other trains on the same track. I started figuring out ways to leave the train.

      There was a man doing announcements in the train who looked like a Somalian comedian from Instagram, we joked that it was his voice that brought bad luck.

      Luckily I woke up!

      Black void with nothing but a cigarette floating in the center and experience burning pain in my lungs.

      I've never smoked in my life, by the way.

      Possible backstory, I went to the club the day prior from 11 pm until 5 am and was awake for 24 hours at some point as I wake up at 5:30 for work. The club bad people smoking indoors and I was also hanging out outside where people occasionally smoked, sometimes the smoke blew in my direction so I probably accidentally inhaled some of it.

      And I have been coughing all week, it wasn't anything new.

      idk my dreams have been a little boring lately, or just dreamless as a whole.
      A few days ago I woke up and couldn't even remember going to sleep, it was just a long vague hazy blur before my alarm clock went off.
      My other dreams have been about my job, boring 9-5 stuff.
    6. Night of Friday 3/24/23 [WILD Success!]

      by , 03-25-2023 at 05:28 PM
      My girlfriend SB shows me a new type of thread she is working with. It is layered type of thing. There is red material inside a main branch of thread and it can be stretched. I'm playing with it and she asks me to stop so I don't ruin it. She is working on new home project.

      I get up and take the Yuschak primary trigger. I stay awake about 10 minutes and prepare my DJ. I re-read some old dreams, go to the bathroom, and then head back to bed. I lay for awhile and the vibrations come pretty quick. I get through one cycle of them, no images. I get a second one, and then I see a white flash, then more vibrations. I think about how last time I "missed the bus" at the end. This time, I imagined a first person view of my hands in front of me, similar to a FPS game. This visual formed at the end of the tunnel. Next thing I knew, I was standing hands outstretched exactly how I visualized. My first full WILD. Nice!

      I'm lucid in a place that looks like my Grandma P's bedroom. My girlfriend SB is there. I stabilize by rubbing my hands together and touching things around the room. I talk to SB for a bit but I forgot the conversation. Also, spicy content occurs but I forget the details. I lose lucidity for a bit. Later, I'm lucid in a place that looks like my friends AG and HS' old apartment. There was some conflict here but I lost the details.

      Some time later I've lost lucidity and my brother A and I are in my car. We are outside a house on a sunny day. I'm yelling at him about something. I recall feeling how hoarse my throat felt. He broke something near the drink holder on my car, and is still arguing with me and trying to give me a stack of bills. I'm frustrated cause I'm trying to fix the drink holder and my hands are busy. He doesn't care.

      I probably should have gotten up to record the lucids sooner. I know I lost a lot of details here, but happy I got another lucid. Seems like the supplements work for me. It's also possible that weekend extra sleep time might be doing the trick. Might be worth it to isolate those conditions and find out. I also woke up after 5 hours this time instead of the usual 6. I may have WILD'd into the end of a sleep cycle instead of the beginning, leading to the instability. Next time, 5.5 hours before waking might be better. I think the 10 minutes awake seems to be good though.

      No recall.

      Definitely had something more than usual today. Maybe multiple fragments or a short dream. But it faded very quickly. Maybe I will look into using a mic to capture these dreams. Maybe I just need to plan waking time in better alignment with my REM cycles.

      Adding this link to my DJ for reference. Very interesting so far. I was able to focus on about 3 sounds at once before losing focus on one or more of them. These are fun and give me a goal to aim for during meditation.

      I'm walking through the second floor of production at work with MM. There is a stressful situation and they need my help to solve.

      There is a marching band show happening in a stadium. My view is from above. The formation is a large spiral shape and it takes up most of the football field.

      I'm in a race in a sunny grassy place. Dream feels light-hearted and happy.

      Really hoping for some better recall soon. Getting tired of these fragments! Been practicing awareness during the day, reading a ton about lucid dreaming, meditating 4 times a week, getting 7+ hours of sleep, plus I woke up without the snooze today. Still crap recall...

    11. School times, Asian city ritual

      by , 03-21-2023 at 07:33 PM (Oneironautic Escapades)

      At highschool walking around
      I see a math teacher I had in middle school
      We talk while walking down the rotunda
      He's talking about one of his classes
      I ask him specifically how he is doing
      He is surprised and I can tell pleased by my interest in his well-being
      I notice my reflection in the windows and see my hair is styled like it was when I was a freshman
      It is the last day of school so everyone is very informal as the day ends
      There are large groups of my peers gathered by the exit taking pictures of each other
      We all burst out the doors at once into the parking lot
      I notice my current car parked on the street right by the entrance
      As I approach I notice my car has been broken into, one of the windows is forced down and one of the side doors is slightly ajar
      I'm put off but not too worried because I keep no valuables in my car
      I shout, Ah man! Wtf! Someone broke into my car!?
      People notice and a small group go into a frenzy of "oh wow, nice! This is YOUR car???"
      A few of them circle the car with me assessing the situation
      A mutual friend climbs into the driver seat before me and pretends to start it up
      I jokingly ask him "lol dusty you gonna drive my car huh?" He exits the vehicle
      When I sit down I notice everything is torn up like the thieves we're looking for something
      My passenger seat had been ripped up, glove box broken, center console opened and papers everywhere
      I sigh at the violation and start the car to leave

      I am with Sunny in a major south east Asian country
      It feels like a metropolitan south Korean with tall city buildings and ancient temples/sites peppered between them
      I am in complete awe with the amount of details around me
      The traffic feels alive, we are walking with a group it seems but I can't stop looking around at the odd angles the highrises have balconies and extravagant walkways between them
      I gather we are going to some special ritual put on by the people here
      We have to travel to the place together and it seems like the crowd is growing the closer we get
      We have to make our way up a very tight very old tower with rustic stairs and a somewhat medieval aesthetic
      I notice how packed the stairs are as we get higher and high
      It occurs to me I'm in a country with fewer building codes and collapses are somewhat frequent
      The whole structure is swaying with the movement of the procession up the never ending staircase
      I get worried about being caught inside this thing if it tumbles so I tell sonny I can't go this way and need to leave while running back down the stairway opposite the torrent of people coming up
      We get back to the street level with no issue and continue the general direction towards the ritual but along the street this time
      I am still amazed at the detail and just how foreign everything feels
      There are planters with unique plants all along the buildings storefronts we pass
      Everything is very well lit and feels fancy in this part of town
      We pass an attraction which is kind is ride I gather
      There is a little car shaped like a streamlined spaceship on the sidewalk, it is a very shiny bluish gray colour with a single point in the front, and two points at the back
      I reach for my phone to take a picture and feel 3 different phones stacked in my pocket
      I keep telling sonny how amazing this all is because I've never been to Asia before
      We arrive at our destination which feels like a large hotel lobby with a massive bar/atrium area inside hundreds of people are elbows to elbows standing around
      Everyone is wearing orange and white
      We are in a line and a they are handing out what appear to be white kitchen towels with an orange corner folded into an armband, one for each person
      We are told to put the band on our selection and that would signify which one was special
      There are thousands of bottles of alcohol and deserts of all shapes and colours on every surface of the main gathering area
      They are already going through other people's selection's, making an announcement everytime they pick one up declaring this is the item they will provide this year
      It feels important as there are chimes and incense and chanting, the ambiance feels spiritual
      I put the armband on and begin to survey the selections, there are too many options to consider
      I stand to the side taking it all in as the dream fades

      I'm washing dirt from under my nails. I'm wondering where the dirt came from since I haven't been outside recently.

      I'm thinking about a habit that has been stressing me lately. I'm feeling guilty about it.

      I've been feeling s little sickish and could feel that in my dream as well, I had a dream about work, and although I cannot legally disclose what I do at my job (9 to 5 office job), this dream felt like an official "first day" where I'll br doing yhe first thing by myself, but in the canteen. While talking to all other worker who exactly found myself at the same place I was standing at.

      I also moved to Austria and I met my only friend from Austria, or at least a version of him generated by my subconscious.

      I had this moment where I thought "I'm going to work and I'll be the greatest I've ever been at it" and that's when my alarm went off.

      It's almost as if they felt my brain waves lol
    14. 23-03-18 Kamikazes & Eagles

      by , 03-20-2023 at 10:32 PM
      I don't recall where it started, but I took off from somewhere. I flew over what could have been dunes, or desert shrubland. I noticed a bunch of beheaded kamikazes from Serious Sam down below, so I wanted to kill them. Once again I struggled with mid-air controls a bit, things like changing direction and stopping inertia. Anyway, I landed and attacked the kamikazes. I wanted to use a power on them but I think it didn't work, so I had to kick down a dried-up (dead) tree and use its trunk as a spear. I impaled a kamikaze on the tree trunk, which was satisfying. In a later scene, I was in a MASSIVE underground cave, still flying, fighting Voldemort and his massive army of giant eagles (from Lord of the Rings). I attacked them by ripping the feathers from their wings, and causing them to crash to the ground. I had acquired a letter of sorts. This letter had to be destroyed to "complete the plot" and vanquish evil (consider it a stand-in for the One Ring). I knew it was someone's mission to destroy it, but now that it was in my possession, I figured: "why can't I do it, and do it much faster?" So I got the letter, and dove down some kind of empty elevator shaft (still flying). I smashed the letter into the bottom of the shaft, and this supposedly "destroyed" it. However, I had a part of it still in my hand, and the text on it had changed into a message aimed it me: the letter could only be destroyed at the right time and in the right place, and presumably, by the right person. No shortcuts. I couldn't just skip three 3-hour movies and finish the whole plot in 10 minutes. Someone else had to actually complete the entire journey.

      One last scene involved having to make out with a girl who had questionable mouth hygiene, and a few other details I don't care to write down here.
    15. The night lovers

      by , 03-20-2023 at 05:32 PM
      Tonight I remembered 3 dreams, but I’m a lazy bastard so I will write down the most interesting one. Anyway, it passed a lot of hours so I have holes in my memory.

      I don’t remember the beginning of this dream. I was with pretty woman (she was my friend but I don’t know her from real life) on unspecific place, probably in some kind of city in middle of night. She ran forward maybe 20-30m from me.
      -Hey, wait for me! – I said
      She looked at me and gaily smiled. I approached to her.
      -You know… I very like you. Very – she said.
      -I feel same way to you. You are very special for me.
      I looked at her smiling face and grabbing her shoulders. She had long light-brown hairs and thick eyebrows. I saw streetlight reflecting in her blue eyes.
      -What do you think about date tomorrow? – I asked
      -It looks great!
      I started to feel weird, very strong and nice feeling and my rushing heart. “Wow that must be a feeling of love. I never felt that before” I thought. My girlfriend grab my hand and we climbed on nearby hill. To the end of dream I was observing this new feeling.
      The most interesting thing in that dream is that I was very aware of my feelings. It wasn’t a lucid dream nor even half lucid. But I was aware of that strong feeling. I almost started to meditate.
