    Thank you GOD...Success!

    Ok, you may think that I am over reacting, but I have been in a (dare I say it out loud?)...dry spell. I was dreaming that I was walking around someone's house and I did a RC to see if I can go through a wall and I did! I calmed down and stabilized the dream by focusing on my surroundings. I came out of the wall still in the same room as on the other side. I wanted to remember my task regarding how the wall felt so, I went back through the wall, but this time slowly. My task is to described how it felt and the only thing I can think of as a comparison is attempting to go through a wet sponge...not really wet, but there was some type of thick resistance. My next goal was to fly so I imagined I was Superman (arm pointed upward and all ) and told myself to fly. I did fly, but I didn't go far and I slowly floated back down like a feather and I started to wake up from I guess all of my dream movement. I did go back into my body, but I DEILD myself back out. Once out my mind started to go everywhere (as far as what can I accomplish now?) and I tried to stay on task. I looked around my surrounding for stabilization and grounded my dream on paying attention to this old fashioned gold scuba helmut sitting on the floor...weird? For some reason this reminded me of the TOTM to ask a DC the meaning of life. Just my luck there was no DC to be found! I looked and looked and I even tried to make the scuba helmut magically turn into a DC to ask the question...but nothing. Frustrated, I made an attempt to fly out of there but I woke up again. "Okay you," I think to myself. "Third times the charm!" I DEILDed my way out and was just floating right above my physical body and couldn't do a damn thing anymore so I gave up and woke myself up!

    Note: I'm thankful for this experience. Every fail is a potential an opportunity to learn!

      Awesome job, bemistaken! Great DILD and series of DEILDs to follow it up! I'm really glad that you got to experience some flight... this will only be the beginning now that you've tried it, I think. Flying rocks.

      When you got to the part with the scuba helmet and trying to turn it into a DC, for some reason I thought you might wind up with a DC of one of the "Big Daddy" characters from Bioshock.



      Congratulations on the LD and all those sweet, sweet competition points!

      Hello CL and thanks!

      That is exactly how my helmut looked in my LD...all gold and shiny...but just the head was visible. I'm not good at all at flying, I have flown before a couple of times, but if I try too hard, I will end up in space. If I try too little, I will really just float there in the ambiance...so I have to learn how to find a happy medium!
