    Lucid Dreams

    1. The Dragon Chase - A successful DEILD

      by , 01-13-2019 at 04:59 PM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      I was finally successful with the DEILD methos, and managed to chain two lucid dreams together.

      I was in the form of Stan from American Dad initially. I just caught wind that a dangerous organization was after me and my family. I ran back to my house,which was a decent sized tree house a couple stories up in a tree. My family was the wife and two kids in the Incredibles. We were all frantically packing the things we needed when I started catching wind that they were about to roll up on us. I shouted for everyone to leave immediately. They were on it. They jumped from the back door and glided down effortlessly. My wife lead them on foot through the fields that stretched as far as the eye can see. I started getting that familiar feeling and began to realize I was dreaming.

      I looked out a window and saw a black limo pull up and park beneath my front door. It was them. I shouldered my bag and jumped out the back door, gliding down and then used that momentum to take a couple steps and launch myself into the air once more. It felt like low gravity mixed with being on a hang glider, or Crouching tiger hidden dragon. As I gently descended, I would push off the ground and launch back into the sky at great speed.

      I repeated this process of jumping - gliding - jumping and began getting faster and faster. I was conscious that looking down even when I was 30 or 40 feet in the air didn't bother me. The ground turned to flooded, barren corn fields up ahead. I could see I had almost caught up with my family. As I got within earshot, I greeted them to let them know I was safe and then kept at the rear of the group. We dashed around tree lines that separated the square acres of field and came upon a gas station in the middle of nowhere. I took one last jump and made it on top of the room that hangs over the gas pump. The wife and kids dashed inside for drinks and snacks. I surveyed the area briefly. It wasn't a tiny gas station, but a Sheetz that would get a good deal of business. We all felt it was a safe place to take a rest. I dropped down from the roof and walked inside. My wife approached me and said "Honey, they have a place we can stay for a while. It's a motel." I and everyone else was relieved.

      I woke up and without thinking, rolled over and opened my eyes a bit. I was really hoping to get back into this dream using the DEILD method. As quickly as I could, I got comfortable and began trying to envision those flooded corn fields, walking on the surface of the water, jumping high into the air. And before I knew it this reality faded, and the dream world I was envisioning materialized right before my mind's eye.

      I was standing outside the motel side of the gas station, staring into the wispy blue sky, feeling the cool air calmly blow past me. I thought to myself "Alright, I'm back. But what should I do now?" The ground began to rumble and a deep roar vibrated the air. To my left coming down the dirt road was a dragon, and it was coming straight for me. I guess my dream wanted to make things interesting for me. I took off, pushing hard against the ground and launching myself into the air just as before. But this time there was a real sense of danger and franticness, because this dragon had no problems keeping up with me. As I covered some distance, maybe 1/4 mile, the ground became more and more saturated until it was all just flood water with broken bits of corn stalks poking through. I thought of my experience walking on water in a lucid dream I had a few weeks ago, and found I was much improved. Every time my feet touched the surface, I was able to push off with plenty of force to send me flying. I looked back to see the dragon had gave up running, and is now swimming towards me. And it was MUCH faster at swimming. So much so that he would be on me within a minute.

      I changed course and shot off through a line of trees. I saw the back of a very large building up ahead, what seemed like a mall. I ran and jumped once more, using my feet to push myself vertically. I couldn't take it all in one leap so I pounded up the rest of the way with my feet and hands against the brick. Looking back, the dragon had resurfaced and was definitely slowed down by the tree line, but it was quickly figuring out how to squeeze through. I still had several ledges to climb before I would be out of the dragon's reach. I continued my ascent, leaping 10-15 feet in the air and catching the brick corners, then pulling myself up. On one of the highest ledges, I saw a hole the size of a football in the brick. I tried to peer inside, but I couldn't. It almost seemed like this was here intentionally, like a video game designer put this here as a reward for the curious gamer who explored this part of the map. I opened my palms and gave a mighty shove, yelling "HAH!" The brick exploded back into a hollow cavern that contained and jeweled, stone rabbit and two small treasure chests. I grabbed the stone rabbit by the ears and began running again. I didn't have time to waste with this dragon still hot on my tail.

      I woke.

      It seemed that my lucidity gradually wore out as the dream progressed. It definitely peaked when I was looking at the sky outside of the motel, when I had a chance to calm myself and wonder what to do next in the dream. But the more preoccupied I was with the action going on, the less I was able to think clearly about anything else. However, my DEILD was successful, and that makes me happy and excited to expand upon it!

    2. Biting Ants

      by , 01-12-2019 at 01:12 AM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      I dreamed of helping preparre for a summer BBQ party. I had to run down to the basement of a house I had lived in a long time ago. I walked across the carpeted concrete floor barefoot. I had grabbed a bag of red plastic cups when I felt a stinging sensation in my toes. I looked down to see the floor crawling with ants. A few looked to be fused together, latched onto one of my toes and continually chomping down. I tried over and over to shake them off to no avail.

      ___

      I was in the dairy section of a grocery store. In this dream, for some reason I had a 5 year old daughter I was looking after. I remember keeping a close eye on her as she browsed the items on the shelves and in the coolers. She came upon a rack that was filled with colorful pool noodles, and she seemed fascinated. For the first time in a long time, I thought to do a reality check in my dream. I held my nose and inhaled, breathing in a full lungful of air. I was able to consciously think to myself that I was indeed in a dream, but everything was so blurry and faded I couldn't hold onto any small bit of lucidity. I soon lost what little focus I had and the dream soon ended.

      This is a step in the right direction; I'm noticing my efforts paying off and it hasn't been a full two weeks yet! I have no intention of slowing down, so hopefully it's only a matter of time before I'm fully lucid regularly.

    3. Young Brothers, I can fly

      by , 05-25-2016 at 02:35 PM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      Lucid.

      I was visiting friends- two brothers. They were still young, 8 and 9, but I was the age I am now. I entered through their window on the second floor. They father told them to go to bed for the night but it was only 7 or 8pm. He heard us talking and moving around and started coming up to their room. They told me to hide, because he was going to be pissed. I wasn't worried about it. I turned invisible. He burst into the room, telling them they need to go to sleep and that they had no more warnings. I tried to cling to the edges of the room to avoid him colliding with me and being exposed. In his erratic pacing, he came within inches of me as he made his way back out, shutting the door behind him.

      I uncloaked and went straight for the window (which he shut). My friends told me not to open them, that they were really loud. I didn't listen. I opened a window and popped out the screen. I handed it back to them and helped put it back in before I left. I scaled around the house, climbing nimbly. I almost climbed right out in front of the dad who was sitting on the second floor porch in a lawn chair. Thankfully he didn't see me.
      I jumped off the side of the house and began flying through the air. I propelled myself by throwing my arms back behind me, like rowing through the air. I glided quite gently, but I wanted to go faster. I swung my arms back and forth frantically, picking up speed. I soared over houses and stores and ended up landing about a block away

      I was on a narrow concrete pathway surrounded by overgrown bushes and plants. Dan, Jenna, and Zach were there. I don't remember much else from that situation. I remember thinking it was still really early in the night and I had a whole bunch of time left to dream. I woke up and saw I was only 3 minutes away from my alarm.

    4. A House of Flowers, Piercingly Blue Sky, Subconscious Tattoos!

      by , 01-10-2015 at 06:18 PM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      I dreamed intensely and lucidly. I remember my mom and step dad were getting married. I wasn't too thrilled about it. The house they had was huge and very nice. A blue white color scheme. There were lots of guests and this reception. It was very hard to get through the house because of all the racks of clothes and endless walls of flowers lining the rooms and hallways. My room was untouched thankfully. I took refuge in there and ended up falling asleep on the floor next to a few of my belongings. I woke up, changed into street clothes and packed my things to leave. My parents were asking me how it all went for me and other trivial things but I didn't have much interest in listening. I answered them shortly and was on my way.

      I was outside on a beautiful sunny day. The downtown square of the town where I grew up. The sky was a very deep, gorgeous blue with light streaks of clouds. I could feel the breeze and the sun on my skin. The entire area was empty except for me and someone who I think I met before in school. He was talking to me while I realized I was dreaming. I jumped onto a cool, steel street light post that ran horizontally across the street to hold street lights. I stared up at the beautiful sky and thought "wow, that's the prettiest dream sky..." I jumped down and started running down the street. I thought of techniques I could do to enhance the dream but I felt I would just get corny results.

      I then thought of a meditation book I have and how it used guided meditation that involved going down stairs to guide you to a dream world. I thought of how that could guide me to my subconscious. For some reason, I imagined finding a dentistry office. I found a door to one of the buildings on my right and opened it. Inside were dark, creaky stairs leading down to another door. I didn't even hesitate. I ran down them and burst through the door. I had entered a waiting room. It was quiet except for a light buzzing and whirring sounds of tattoo guns. Beside me was a tattoo artist working on someone's tattoo. The tattoo artist looked up at me, surprised. She had dark rimmed glasses and pink streaked hair tied in pigtails. She wore a black tank top and was covered in tattoos. I immediately apologized for interrupting and went to the counter. I started talking with another female tattoo artist about my tattoo. This one had on a similar black tank top and dark rimmed glasses but she had blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail. I described how much I was quoted on it, the details, the color scheme. She looked really enthusiastic as I told her this. She immediately pulled out a tattoo gun and told me to lay my arm on the table. I did as she told and then piped up, explaining how I never got a tattoo before. She started pushing the needle in my skin. I didn't feel anything. And then I "woke up".

      I was in the back of a car that two of my bosses (and role models) were driving. I was ecstatic about the dream I had and I began to tell Carrie, the one in the passenger seat. She didn't seem very interested in me at all. She seemed distracted. I struggled to remember any details of the first dream for a little while until the colors started flowing back to me. I remembered a part I hadn't originally recalled.
      In the narrow hallways of my parents house, the ones lined with flowers, several marionettes hung by the back of their shirts among the flowers. They came to life and started offering me the candy in their pockets before I was able to get to my room. I had declined and kept walking. Carrie asked me a few questions, prodding for detail, and I was able to answer them. I then woke up for real.

    5. Rainy Day Lucid

      by , 12-08-2014 at 07:48 PM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      As the dream formed I knew exactly what was happening. I knew I was dreaming. I remember looking at my hands which at first were blurry but felt real. I breathed through my nose while holding it, my favorite reality check. The air in my nose felt really strange (another indicator). I tried thinking of my waking reality and wondering if I were conscious of that at all at the moment. I don't think I was which made the dream even more clear and vivid. I saw my two musician friends ahead of me, walking. One had my coat on for some reason. We were in an industrial area. The sky was very cloudy and dismal. We took a turn down a wide alley between two warehouses. I remember watching the ground as we walked. The rough gravel turned into a brown muddiness. I saw large holes in the ground. I thought to myself that those must have been some huge groundhogs or something. Must've been dog sized. I stepped over them, hoping they weren't going to collapse under me. They didn't. By this time it started to rain lightly. My two friends were still walking on ahead. I saw a door leading into one of the warehouses on my left. They approached the door but by the time I got to them the dream had faded.

    6. Ego Trip

      by , 11-11-2012 at 09:25 AM (Re-entry: The Atmosphere)
      Last night before I slept, I sat on my bed and listened to some music before shutting my computer down. I thought to myself random bits of things I've wanted to do in a dream. And then I went to sleep..

      As soon as I entered the dream I was aware of exactly what was going on. I was dreaming. I was in a vivid thought full of perception from each of my five senses. This was real.

      I was walking down the main road I used to live on by a Circle K. Everything seemed to become fuzzy and blurry. Like the air was thickening. I looked down at my arms and at the scene before me and willed it to become more vivid. It happened. My will power was law in this world. I felt strong. I felt powerful. I felt unstoppable. I remembered something I thought of before I went to sleep. Something I've always wanted to do in a dream. I felt this energy rising up in me, and I extended my arm out and pointed it across the road. I forced the power to expand and grow until it shot through my arm and burst out of my palm in the form of an arc of lightning. It hit a car across the street and it was like the dream itself exploded. In that moment I thought that I forced this to happen, that it wasn't natural and not as good as if it were to happen naturally. And in that moment, the dream was blown to bits and went black. End.

      This was a complete ego trip and it was pretty darn cool!
