    Flying Over a Montain Range

    Flying Over a Mountain Range [DILD]

    The setting in this dream was odd, I was at home but I was also in some kind of school class working on a project. There was a decent chunk of this dream that was non-lucid, but I can't really remember much of it now. Basically where my recall comes in is when I became lucid and decided to go for a change of scenery.

    I had decided to try walking through some doors instead of phasing for once, but then I remembered a thing I read where it said that walking through a door is enough to disrupt short-term memory and decided against it. I phased out through the backyard door of my house and flew over the fence and across other peoples' yards. The main thing I remember is that in this yard immediately behind mine, which looked nothing like it does in real life, there was a naked woman sunbathing that just caught me by surprise so I thought it was funny.

    Next thing I knew the area around my house had completely changed, and I was flying high over a bunch of fields and a mountain range. It was extremely vivid and lifelike, I think it may have been the most realistic flying scene I've ever had in a lucid. I was just in awe of all of it, especially the trees, some of which were hanging in the air. They actually had very similar designs to these plants we have hanging from our living room ceiling, so I'm betting that that's what inspired them, but they were much larger, more complex, and very beautiful and natural-looking. The whole view was just incredible.

    Anyway... I started thinking the name S, which I've known lots of people named, and landed somewhere in a field by this compact trailer home. I looked around and saw this girl who was one of the people with that name, this girl SS I knew from acting classes in middle school, and ran up to her and said hi. She pointed out this tornado to me that was in the distance, and either she told me or I just suddenly knew that she was training to be a wind witch and I told her to try to change its path. She wasn't really able to though, but it did pass right by us in a very unrealistic fashion without even creating any feeling of gust, it's more like it just phased out of existence by getting closer to me in my vision.

    After that SS and I just sat down and I wrapped my legs around her, but then
    I woke up.

      Sounds like a wonderful LD. There's just something about flight, isn't there? Love the scenery and setting, plus the casual "not-even-trying" summon at the end. That's really the best way, isn't it? Name pops into your head, and you just assume "they're around here somewhere". And guess what? There they are.

      Congratulations on the LD!

      What a great dream! I love flying, it feels amazing.
      That thing you remembered about doors, did you really read something irl or that was a dream memory? My surroundings change quite a bit when I go through doors, even if I don't intend it.

      Thank you! Flying is pretty wonderful. And that really is the best way to summon, or go about pretty much anything really. =) If only we were all used to casually expecting all kinds of crazy superpowers to manifest, we would have it easy in the dream world.

      Thanks! Yeah, isn't it great? The door thing is real. They did a study on people and found that walking through a doorway actually did mess with their short-term memory, I would presume because once you enter a new room you suddenly have to deal with a new set of surroundings. After reading that I thought back to many lucid experiences I've had where walking through a door destabilized the dream, and I decided that it probably was in my best interest not to do so anymore lol. I don't need them, anyway.

      That seems contrary to the logic of a lot of stabilisation techs where the principle is to force the brain to generate more dream content (spinning etc.)

      Don't forget the role of expectation, if you think that walking through doors will destabilise then it likely will.

      Awesome dream, anyhow, flying is one of those things that's just gets better each time you do it.

      Oh, the part of being overwhelmed with lots of new info makes sense for messing up with memory. I noticed I have trouble recalling conversations with unfamiliar DCs and concluded something similar. About doors, I think it still is a good scene changing tech, but it may require a greater level of control. Changing the scene involves letting go for a while, and then holding on to the dream once again so that it doesn't slip away, and it takes at least in my case lots of practice to learn to do that properly.
