    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. 12.2.2014 my first and hopefully last war

      by , 04-27-2014 at 07:35 PM
      This is a non-lucid dream but by far one of the most realistic longest dreams I have recently had (it felt as if lasting 2 days). In order not to insult anyone I will just call the country that the place I live at got attacked by "Country X".

      It all starts out in my living room. It is just a casual day as I sit on the sofa with my Mum and Dad watching TV. Everybody is quite calm, but my mood is a little bit excited for some yet unknown reason. I suddenly stand up, apporach the window and see an old city center a few hundered meters away (that's not the view I normally see when looking out of this window!). Between the old buildings which are built of wood and clay right on a cobbled road there are many soldiers dressed in their dark green and brown uniforms. Everyone of them looks quite young and they are all armed. Using my binoculars I recognise that they are from Country X as they start running towards our town. I become totally scared as the army approaches, but my parents' mood doesn't seem to change as they just tell me to keep calm. I can't believe that they are not worried as I suddenly here people shooting. A few seconds later two of my best friends and a couple of neighbours appear at the door and want to come into our house. I can see the fear in their eyes as they have obviously heard the shots as well. We talk about the situation as all of a sudden a biting and disgustingly horrible smell a bit like chlorine seems to enter our nostrils. It dawns on me that we are attacked with phosgene which is a poisonous gas used in World War I. The feeling of this gas slowly increasing in its concentration is overwhelmingly real and I become extremly sick and feel like having to vommit. We all take some tissues in order to reduce the amount of gas that we breathe in (I suppose that in real that would be totally useless) and we all start running away towards the fields and forests near my house. Luckily there is not any poisonous gas yet and the sun shines down on us just like on a hot but peaceful summer day. Other people are just casually going for a walk in the forest. When I talk to them they assure me that there is no war, but I tell them that I have seen it and my friends confirm what I have just said. However the other people keep calm so we decide to move on. I soon encounter another friend of mine who seems to be informed of what's going on so he tells use to come with him. He brings us to the apartment of his girlfriend where we supposedly are safe as there is plently of food and water. My father suddenly appears there as well and tells us to go to a nearby supermarket in order to get even more food just in case we can't leave for the next few days. He decides that he himself goes to the supermarkt whereas I go back to my house to get some important things. When I arrive there nothing of the poisonous gas seems to be left, but right in front of my house there are huge white trucks driving by at a slow pace of 5 km/h. On their cargo area they are packed with different weapons and assembly parts to build a hangar. It dawns on me that Country X seems to be planning air strikes as well! Next to the huge white trucks heavily armed soldiers are marching. I pay close attention to one of them. He is wearing his uniform and a grey helmet. He has blue eyes and his look is very serious. He stares back and I feel as if he is piercing me with a fierce look full of hatred - but obviously he is not allowed to hurt me since I am a civilian, but he still looks as if trying to tell me that I shall fear this war. Totally enraged by this event I enter my house where my mum and my neighbour try blocking the doors with old tyres (seems useless...!). I gather important things and as I leave the house even more trucks arrive carrying massive weapons and troop supplies. As this view increasingly shocks me I slowly wake up drenched in sweat...

      ... Even though I am awake now this totally convincing dream in such familiar surroundings made me believe that there actually is a war going on and it took me a few minutes to actually realise that all of this has just been my imagination going crazy within my dreams.

      All in all a very interesting dream that I honestly don't want to go through again. However I am still amazed by the details and especially the way this furious soldier made me feel just by staring at me as if wanting to shoot me on the spot!

    2. my first time in the USA

      by , 08-20-2013 at 04:33 PM

      I am in a hotel room in some foreign country. I somehow have this feeling that I am in Canada very close to the US border so after having some smalltalk with my parents I decide to take the car and drive across the border just to get an idea of what things are like "on the other side". My mum told me to get a map so that they can go hiking later. So as soon as I cross the border without any problems I encounter a sign on the side of the road which limits the speed to 77 km/h. I notice this, start to brake and wonder... 77? Very strange speed limit. However my subconscious reacts immidiately as if not wanting me to become lucid and puts another speed limit sign 100 meters further down the road which says 60km/h (~ 37 miles/h) which makes a lot more sense than 77. After a while I see that some parts of the road are cobbled so now it makes total sense to limit the speed... my awareness seems to be satisfied and doesn't question the dream anymore (sadly). I encounter a few tractors since this is quite a rural area.

      After a while I arrive at a small town. I stop at the next petrol station which also has quite a large supermarket in it. Somehow a friend of mine appears so we go inside together. I really want to get some American sweets and try them so I buy some sort of marshmallow cookies/waffles with chocolate (strawberry and hazlenut flavour), the map my mum wanted me to get and some other cool things. I also wanted to buy some things from the deep freezer, but I don't want them to melt in the car so I leave them where they are, however I marvel at some of the ice crystals in the deep freezer because they are extremly large and have a beautiful blue tint.
      After putting all those things in my shopping basket and going towards the cashier's desk I notice that I only have 75€ in my wallet. I ask the cashier (in English of course. Before this I was talking in German the whole time) if he was able to change 15€ into US$. He says that this was no problem. However I think that 15€ are not enough so I give him another 10€ that he should change into US$ as well. For some reason I tell him how many US$ I get and that he still needs to scan the things in my shopping basket. He replies: "Oh calm down. I'm good at math". I then reply "How am I supposed to know? I just wanted to make sure that you do everything correctly.". It takes him quite a while to do all those things which is why quite a long queue builds up.
      However I soon leave the store with my friend and some really luxurious cars are driving by. We note that there must be some VIPs in those cars. We decide to leave our car where it is and go for a walk towards the city centre.
      The town is really pretty and for some reason I am extremly happy and totally delighted. Everything I see makes me happy. That is probably the case because I absolutely adore travelling. We cross a few streets, turn right and find my mum, a good friend of mine and her mum walking on the pavement. I don't question how they got there; instead I'm happy to meet them and we stroll along the streets towards the city centre where we can see skyscrapers in the distance (quite strange for a small town) as the dream fades away and I wake up at 5:55am 5minutes before my alarm is supposed to go off.

      All in all, quite a long, extremly vivid and lovely dream. I can even remember some scents and many sounds (which not so usual in my dreams since the sounds are always a bit off or the background noise is missing). Nothing exciting or crazy happened, but however I am still very happy with this dream as I really enjoyed its atmosphere.
