    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #194: Bold Talk

    I have a false awakening where I really need to pee and I head into a darkened restroom with urinals along the wall. It looks like something that you’d find in the lobby of a nice hotel or a fancy restaurant. I remember that I fell asleep at home, so this all seems really odd, but when you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.

    I start using the urinal for a bit when it occurs to me that I might be dreaming. Everything feels oddly realistic, so I stop, suddenly afraid that I’m wetting the bed. There’s a single sink in this restroom with a mirror over it. I walk up to the mirror and see my bleary-eyed self staring back. I bring up my hand for a nose pinch and so does my double. When I breathe right through my pinched fingers,
    I’m finally sure that this is a dream.

    I walk out through the restroom door into a sports stadium that seems to be made up of a bunch of crisscrossed steel girders. On the outside of the stadium I can see huge red letters that are backward (from my perspective) and seem to spell out something like “B E A R S”. I look closer and now the letters are oriented to face me and spell “M E T S”.

    Taking a glass door leading outside brings me to a large, covered pavilion filled with DCs standing around chatting and holding fountain drinks. I decide that I want another crack at Task of the Year, so I try to take command: “Listen up everyone!” They all stop what they’re doing and turn to face me. “You will all help me do task of the year.”

    I get this sudden feeling of paranoia and add, “And none of you will attack me!” Agh, shut up, man, nobody’s thinking of attacking you! The DCs return to going about their business and walk past me, the pavilion area quickly thinning out until there are just a handful of people in there beside me. I start trying to work a magic lamp summon for the Aladdin Task of the Year but
    the dream collapses before I have any success.

      Well done CL on taking advantage of the FA.

      It's amazing what random thoughts can cross your mind during a lucid dream.

      These are not random thoughts, this is the amygdala screaming!

      (yes, finally using terminology!)

      Heh heh, exactly Nyx, my amygdala was doing a little speech rewriting there at the end.

      Congrats catching the FA!

      Do you have a mantra or any day practice that you think contributed to this realization?

      Thanks, fogelbise! I should have a day practice that helps with this but I really don't. I do use a mantra as part of my MILD, which is probably helpful for keeping sleep and dreams on my mind.

      Daytime practices have been pretty weak for me lately. Life just hasn't left me the space that I'd like for that kind of thing!
