    Bedroom Mirror

    Lucid #172: Bedroom Mirror

    I either DILD or WILD into a scene where I'm walking with my oldest son E across a parking lot. There are only a few cars here but there are a huge number of DCs wandering around. It looks like the parking lot is immediately adjacent to an Olympic pool that's surrounded by a high chainlink fence, so I decide to head that way.

    As we're walking along, I spy my friend F. He and E haven't gotten to see each other in person for a while, so I think it'd be fun to have their DCs interact. "Hey F!" I say. "We're heading for the pool. Walk with us."

    "Sure thing, man!" he says and immediately bolts off ahead of me, hopping around like a kid. Each of his "hops" have him bounding around about 6 feet up in the air. Meanwhile E stays obediently close by, and I find the role reversal amusing.

    Walking all the way to the pool takes a distressingly long time and I start feeling like I'm overcommiting to this one scenario. I see it through, though, and when we get to the pool, E and F start running around. There are a lot of people here and the two of them are quickly lost in the crowd. I think I could find them again if I put my mind to it, but I decide to just flow into a different set of goals. I notice a football stadium a ways off past the pool, so I fly over to that to investigate, thinking I can make the switch of stadium to Colosseum for Task of the Year.

    I land in a broad, grassy field near the stadium. The crowd's even thicker here but one extremely attractive woman catches my eye as she walks past. She's Asian, about 30, and strangely dressed, wearing a long, purple, velvety coat that reaches down to her knees. For a moment I return to my Colosseum idea but just can't get the DC off of my mind, so I decide to spend some time with her instead.

    When I turn back she's still, looking at me with a bit of confusion. I explain what I have in mind and she nods slowly, her eyes narrowing in concentration as if it's really hard to make sense of what I'm saying. But eventually she gets the picture and approaches me. We make out for a second and then we fly off together to get away from the crowd.

    Somehow we wind up in a huge, elegant, marbled bedroom and very vivid sexytime begins. After about a minute or so of great fun, I notice that there’s a large, angled mirror on part of the wall, and I check whether I can see us in it. In the mirror I see another couple doing the same thing we’re doing, but they’re completely different people (an Asian male and a totally different Asian female.) The woman from the mirror and I stare at each other in shock and amusement for a moment.

    I notice another mirror on a different part of the wall and when I check it I see an entirely new scene -- it’s the same couple from the other mirror, now grown old and sitting together on a bench, their hands clasped together. The old couple shares a laugh and look into each other’s eyes as
    the dream ends.

      Congrats on the lucid.

      The Matrix - Neo - the blonde in the red dress (in the crowd) funnily springs to my mind!

      Sounds like you had sexytime too!

      The mirror image of the Asian couple later transforming into the older couple who are still together I find quite comforting considering this so-called modern age.

      Ha, you're right! Totally fell for the woman in the red dress! I remember thinking that Neo would only fall for that because he was such a newbie... but in dreams it is so hard to avoid distraction! Really, really tough.

      To be fair, the DC was very, very good-looking, and I am so very, very low in IQ in lucids.

      Neo is the dogs B*llocks when it comes to oneironmancy!

      Yeah Ophelia and the team should make the woman in the red dress a task - we would both never fail to get wings.

      I don't think it's an IQ issue (more of a test.) Maybe a flood of testosterone - but like Neo, we are all human after all.

      Nice DC dream control to get your DCs to come along and very funny how they switched roles and your friend was bouncing in the air.

      The mirror thing was really crazy, especially the first part and the second scene I found intriguing. Like you followed the story of their life.

      Ha ha, you teach me so much new lingo. So does the "dogs b*llocks" mean he's good? Like "the bee's knees"?

      Yeah, dreams feature very, very low impulse control, PLUS a completely consequence-free environment. Even in the Matrix they didn't have that going against them!

      Thanks, fogelbise! Yeah, the mirror visuals were a great surprise. Even if you're focused on something completely different, it seems like dreams are still always full of surprises. I love that about them.

      Yeah, Nyx, thanks! It was feeling like hard work wrangling them both, particularly my supposedly grown-up friend F, who I could barely stop from bounding through the air. I enjoyed the mirror a great deal as well, particularly since each transition was just such a surprise. Dreams are cool!!

      @ CL.

      Exactly. 'The Bees knees' would be an exact substitute for the context (usually 'the best.')
