    1. Turtles in Red Square

      by , 08-18-2019 at 10:58 PM

      I'm traversing the little-known border between the eastern U.S. and Russia. In the distance I see Tsarist architecture with two statues of angels in a courtyard. Between the angels stands a statue I think might be Lenin with his standard outstretched arm, but I'm not quite close enough to make it out. Then I notice yellow traffic turtles on the pavement and other barriers and fear I may have strayed onto Russian territory without crossing the border legally, so I beat a hasty retreat.

      Walking down a corridor I become lucid, close my eyes and ask to see the Lenin statue up close but nothing happens.

    2. 18 Aug: Meeting a long lost love

      non-dream dream semi-lucid lucid false awakening

      Somewhere with family members and a few acquaintances. My uncle Zé is there, still living. Zilla is also present. I am trying on a dress she absolutely loves. It's a tight, red polka dots, no shoulders dress. People gasp seeing me in it. She asks where I bought it. I think C&A but we check the label with and it says some other brand. Anyway, she is sad she missed the chance to have one just like it.
      We walk to some shops with dresses on their windows. She points to a few dresses, asks my opinion, I dislike all. She gives up, we part ways and she heads to her car.
      Meanwhile, I spot Matos, who just saw me and heads towards me. He looks super thrilled for seeing me, tells me so and invites me for a coffee. I hesitate. He asks if I'm married. I say no, but that I have a commitment. He argues we left something in mid-air in our past, recalls our deep connection and asks if we could restart from where it was left as he never stopped thinking of me. I recall our teenage love with sweetness. But I am through with it.
      I telĺ him my car is in the opposite direction he is heading. Suggest him we should treasure the memories we have but move on with our lives. He insists it was unfair, that we shouldn't have lost touch, that our connection is one in a lifetime. I tell him he was special alright, but that at best he is maybe the 3rd option on my backup list. Not even true, he is no longer on the list. He is heartbroken. I feel sorry but just wanna go away and say goodbye to him.

    4. Acceptance into.......

      by , 08-18-2019 at 12:58 AM
      This is my first post here....even though I have kept a strong DJ for the six months or so that I have been training. This dream felt....very important.

      I should preface this by saying that have gravitated toward some of the more esoteric tenets of Dream Yoga, even as I work hard on my LD techniques pretty much every night. My goal in all of this is to improve who I am and how I live my life by adding a few hours every day to the time I have left to improve. I am 67 years old. I tend to use lucid dreaming as a strong tool toward that end but my daytime practice is very strong on establishing a solid presence in every moment in the hope that that true presence translates into the dream and, in turn, further translates into my daily life. It is working, btw

      This dream came a few days ago on a Thursday night after SSILD at 2:00 AM. I get up every day at 4:00 AM to start my day.

      I entered the dream at the entrance of a room. I looked around a bit and was greeted by a man who indicated that I needed to be humble and was not allowed to stand as I entered. I looked at him and identified him as a DC. I was not humble as I entered. Instead I entered in suwari waza style...knee walking (google that). I an an Aikido Shodan from my younger years. I took a strong seiza posture in the room and looked at all of them. In front of me was a woman...sitting up high, with a number of men to her right (my left). She had shortish hair and was smiling at me right from the start. She was defintely a person of power and authority and the men were subservient to her but still very importanat.

      They were discussing me as if I was not there and they were amused a bit by my attitude. She spoke to me about that attitude and I just smiled and looked back at her. To her left was a tall bookcase filled with books. I brought my perception closer to it and read some of the titles but I have not been able to recall those titles.

      They spoke among themselves....she was smiling as if slightly amused but possibly impressed. As the dream began to dissolve a slip of paper was put into my hands that had numbers on it as if it was an order for material...the numbers were large. I work in sales in my days and this felt immediately like a massive gift....or on a deeper level like I had been accepted into their circle.......as the dream continued to dissolve around me.

      I'm not big on dream interpretation. I would rather understand where the dream comes from within me. An interesting side noteis that on Friday night I had planned to work on HI and WILD toward morning, knowing that I did not really need to rise early. At around 2:00 AM I woke from a dreamless sleep and got up feeling incredible clear and awake. I always have dreams..always. I generally remember at least two or three. I stayed up for a short while and the went back to bed. I put my body to sleep fairly quickly but there was no HI. Instead I experienced an amazing calmness as I remained awake for two hours or so....more, as I think back. There was...a white light instead of the usual HI colors. At the end I fell asleep briefly and awoke feeling incredibly rested and invigorated.

      That was last night. Looking forward to tonight's dreams.....
