    False Awakening

    1. Night of 7/14/24

      by , 07-16-2024 at 06:28 AM
      LD:
      My partner and I are outside somewhere at a wooden banister/railing. There is a 70s style purse/fanny pack that a woman left on the banister. An imposing man in pink tank-top walks up to grab the purse, but I get to it first and hide it in my hoody. I know the man wants it for himself, and I知 keeping it safe for the woman. To distract him from the purse, I have him become interested in me instead. At this point I realize I知 dreaming and the scene shifts to my bedroom with the man. I extricate myself from the situation in order to explore lucidity in other ways. I snap my fingers for a new setting, and I知 transported into a Minecraft-like world. I first try mass telekinesis and lift a bunch of large car sized blocks off the ground and throw them in front of me. Next, I try and practice deity yoga and attempt at becoming a god. I imagine myself floating and filling with cosmic energy, but quickly deflate and fall back to the ground. I then ask the dream space if I can become a god. In a matter of moments I feel myself shine brightly with cosmic energy and I fly up through the atmosphere and into space. On the way up I try telekinesis again and am able to lift mountains. Once I知 in space I cannot see Earth or other planets so I try and summon them into being. After a moment, planets and cosmos whirl by. My lucidity starts to fade and I find myself shifted back into my bedroom and into a false awakening, which I catch with my hand reality check. Interestingly, the poking hand method fails and seems to be real, but I catch that I still have 6 fingers. The dream is dim now, so I try and spin and lick my hand to stabilize but the dream quickly fades

      NDL and fragment:
      I知 a young woman on a road trip to Scotland. Along the way I stop at a glass blower stall who only sells local/always sold out online (website is mostly red). There is a small chest full of simple glass rings of many colors and also earrings I think. The main purpose of going to Scotland was for some sort of fashion project. There痴 almost a slideshow of dress designs/final outfits, switching between green and purple. The purple outfit was the final one. It was a pleated long dress with tight bodice. There was some sort of purple face covering, like 3 thick bands of ribbon. An array of curly beard, 鍍entacles hang from the chin. A hat with furry rim and flat top. There is a song playing in the background, Last Days by Yasushi Yoshida

      My partner and I are packing to leave someplace. I also needed to shower but couldn稚 find one in place we were staying in.
    2. Night of 7/9/24

      Lucid Dream:
      I used MILD, reviewed my dream signs, and what I was gonna do lucid in that dream. Song “Hiraeth” by Clemens Ruh from prior dream kept playing through my head. Took me a while to fall asleep so I tried SSILD, which turned into WILD and I slid into light sleep paralysis. I asked for lucid dream, but nothing seemed to happen. I was super tired and felt awake in my bed. I assumed it didn’t work, but I worked up the energy to do a RC by looking at my hands. It took a lot of energy to move my hands through the sheets and lift my head. Lo and behold I had extra fingers, making this one of the most convincing false awakenings.

      I immediately spring out of bed, and rub my hands to stabilize the dream. Everything is super vivid, however it feels like I have one eye closed so I spend a moment trying to regain depth vision. My first task is to control the elements. I’ve worked with water and wind before, and wanted to try fire for the first time. I lifted my hands in front of me and willed flames into being above my palms. It was really faint at first, but I imagined using my body heat/energy to ‘heat’ up the flames and they became more stable. Still fairly subdued, so I’d like to try again at some point. At that moment, a hyper-real, very physical/sensual man walked right up to me. I do not recognize him from waking life.

      It was hard to deny his physicality and I could feel the warmth of his body and pull of his attraction. We chatted for a while and he wanted to engage in "things". We chat briefly about how it feels so real and physical, and if because of that it counts as much as in real-life.

      At various points in our conversation I try to sneakily summon a wall that I can walk through since it is on my list as my second task, but unfortunately a wall doesn’t appear and the man is still a distraction haha. The scene shifts and I notice that the man now has the head of animal. This reminds me of my third intention which was to transform fully into an animal. I know it’s out of intended order, but seemed relevant for what was happening so I gave it a try.

      I think of the leopard from my prior dream and feel myself morph onto all fours. I look down and see bright orange leopard paws and claws. They are little deformed and too bright so I spend a moment dulling the color and getting the shape right. At that moment I notice there is a wall in front of me. It seems like there are blue stained glass windows in the upper half, and I immediately think now's my chance to practice phasing through. In leopard form, I leap through, but realize I closed my eyes at the last second passing through so it doesn't count. I turn around and try again, but this time the wall almost flips aside like it’s a made out of flimsy plastic. I try one more time and make sure to keep my eyes open and focus on phasing through the wall fully and it works.

      The whole time I’m doing this, the now animal-headed man is looking very confused and is trying to follow me back and forth through the wall. He ends up getting stuck on the other side after I phase through.

      I end up landing into another false awaking, and do another reality check, but didn’t catch it that time so ended up slipping into a non-lucid dream.


      NDL #1:
      A group of us are setting a trap for the “enemy” but something about our plan fails and they find out. However the entity we’re up against plays “dumb” for us and sends someone to trip the trap anyways. This person turns out the be a friend. The trap is elaborate and involves him interacting with many different parts. I’m watching him from underneath some furniture so he cannot see me. Once he finishes setting the trap knowingly something changes - There is a brief moment where he is shown as a leopard running (in a new scene). Behind the scene I hear the song “Hiraeth” by Clemens Ruh distinctly playing and I wake up.

      NDL #2:
      I’m playing fiddle on the promenade next to a beach. I’m playing a slow Irish Air and a middle eastern family comes up intrigued by the tune. The handsome adult son walks up to me and says sounds it sounds like Afghan 'prison' music (not trying to be rude…more it’s just a lament and prison is a sad place to be). A friend pops in to say it’s Irish but originally probably British. Scene shifts to riding in the back seat of a car with the middle eastern man. He wants to play music so he brings out his instrument, which looks like a hammered dulcimer, but played with a short bow. He also brought a violin he can play. A friend is also in the car, and ends up borrowing the violin. I start playing S Bheag, S Mhr, and both the middle eastern man and my friend join in beautifully. He says this song is brighter than the first one I played, and I reply that is because I never got to the higher octave play through when he first heard it. Scene shifts and we’re driving through random parking lots. My sister, is in front of me now.

      NDL fragments:
      In a reoccurring area where conflict happens. Usually there are wooden arenas and hills in the area. In this particular dream I’m escaping a pursuer in a rock garden with a lot of cacti and succulents. I try and hide in the shadows to escape from the bright sun.

      Advanced combat teams in circular looking submersibles are in a water combat course. They work their way up river firing projectiles from the submersible.

      My mom is doing some sort of performance art in her office at home. There is a large crowd in the room so it’s hard to see the end, but her final act in the performance is to feign death. The crowd applauses at her performance and afterwords she goes with me to the buffet to get her sandwich.

      NLD #1

      Some game and/or tv show and/or soap opera adds a character named after "Luis van Guido" and they have just revamped his character portrait sprite. He has X confirmed kills (or 4 hours to first confirmed kill). My "grandmother" is excited about the news since it's something the hip young ones would also be interested in and is trying to pull up his sprite on her phone to show us but is only getting the old one. I go on the internet to find it myself. He is a handsome looking man with short dark hair and a beard.

      NLD #2

      Some guy is streaming painting some plushies which each represent various internet people. Before he starts, he takes pics from an old flip phone to show chat. This includes an artist I follow. At some point he also video calls someone who cheekily answers while in the middle of driving which is alarming. During one point in the call they turn around in the driver's seat briefly and we're like "please watch the road!"

      LD

      FA? I'm in my bedroom and become lucid, nose RC to confirm. With some effort I get out of bed and leave through the window. But before I do, I figure I should look around since I rarely do that. My bedroom is an older style bedroom this time with dark wooden panel wainscoting and frames hanging on the walls. The dream is pretty fuzzy, not very vivid, but I don't think to try and fix this first.

      I head out and try to remember what I need to do for the LD comp. I end up on the roof of some building in daytime wracking my brain for some memories. I eventually remember about teleporting. I try to find a door nearby, going down to street level in this dingy alleyway, and see a door that's more like a wooden closet door. Briefly, I consider making my own door/portal because that would count as a personal goal but I figure I should start simple instead.

      I open the door and crawl inside. It's empty, there's a shelf near the top, and it's cramped. I close the door behind me and first imagine the outside changing, but then I figure this could be like Narnia instead. I imagine the back of the closet receding and feel around for a second door. I don't have a specific destination in mind, so I open it and end up in what looks like a Muji, with products on display and all.

      I am a little disappointed. I try to think of a specific setting and decide on Harry Potter. I find a properly sized door and go through. I find myself on this flight of dark wooden stairs. I squint (everything is still fuzzy and dreamlike) and try to reason if this place could be related to Hogwarts but it looks more like a regular university, like a old New England-style building. I vaguely imagine an auditorium-like setting in my head and keep moving. I don't remember what Hogwarts actually looks like, which doesn't help.

      I end up in a dollar store or bookstore with aisles of items on shelves. Instead of worrying about it further, I look around for some magic wands on the shelves and at first see something that might be it, but turns out to be some plastic toy bubble maker. Screw it, I'll make my own wand. I hold both my hands out and mimic "pulling" a long piece of wood out of thin air between pinched fingers, like stretching taffy, until I get a long wand. The surface of it is bumpy and uneven. I try to Wingardium Leviosa something nearby but it doesn't work at first. I remember I need to actually "craft" a magic tool for the competition and try "enchanting" it by imagining a dark spiral pattern onto it and pressing some purple symbols into the wood. There is an older woman behind the front desk that reminds me of McGonagall who gives me some advice about the gesture (down and up).

      (after this point I'm not 100% sure I'm still dreaming, though I don't think I feel my physical body in bed?)

      I feel a wave of something that might mean I'm waking up at this point and am ""daydreaming"" instead. Feeling a sense of urgency/doubt, I follow the woman's advice and try to levitate a product on the counter and it works (? unclear)

      I go outside after and think about what else I can do. I'm not sure if I'm actually dreaming or imagining things right now. I call out for A. just for the hell of it as I walk past a dimly lit construction site through an underpass, the right side of me blocked off by a blue wall. He actually appears around the corner, holding a plate with a slice of cake and a strange two-piece umbrella where the handle detaches. I'm surprised and glad that he's there. I feel the pulse of "something" again. I ask him about the umbrella and he says something about needing to allow or not allow some other people from using it? Unclear, but it's a mischievous vibe. I realize the cake is gone. I want to ask more but then I'm 100% awake.

    4. Night of Monday 7/8/24

      by , 07-09-2024 at 11:05 PM (Dreamlog)
      Fragment:
      I'm hosting a party with my girlfriend's family. There is water saturating the carpet and I'm concerned that something is wrong.

      Odd Pressure:
      I hear my alarm go off and I reset it to snooze for 20 more minutes.
      I wake up again and I notice that there is something wet on the floor. I go back to sleep again.
      My alarm goes off again and this time I get up.
      I go through my normal routine, and start brushing my teeth.
      I feel an odd pressure on my left side. I realize that it is actually my girlfriend's body up against me on the bed.

      I realize that I'm dreaming, and I don't feel the pressure anymore.
      I quickly grab some toothpaste and swallow it, realizing that I could get competition points for that.
      The taste is close to how it normally should be, but somehow drier. Blueberry-ish flavor.
      The dream fades quickly, but I'm satisfied that I managed to do something before then.


      Tot Gym:
      I'm at the gym with some people from my 'Tots' friend group. H is there and also M.
      The gym resembles the Crunch Fitness I visited some weeks ago.
      There is a high-tech looking machine that requires a top-level membership to operate.
      I'm worried that my friends are going to be lifting heavier than me.

      Death and Pterry

      I'm in some classroom with bluish lighting, either playing a game or actually physically there. I see a couple of small black bunny statues on top of the hanging fluorescent lights and remember I'm supposed to click/collect them to get points. Between some of the bunnies I see a miniature Death from Discworld talking with a mini Pterry - I accidentally make both of them decade or two younger because I use something like a magnifying glass on them. Someone comments that they've never seen that before. I guess Death isn't a skeleton in this case? I get concerned and try to reverse it but it eventually doesn't matter.

      There's more to this but I don't remember.

      FA Chain LD

      (some of this might be out of order because there were quite a few FAs but should be roughly correct.)

      I wake up sometime in the night and try to WILD. Eventually I do the nose check and yup I'm dreaming. I get out of bed and open the window and leave. As usual the window is accessible compared to IRL where I have a desk in front of it. The window slides upwards instead of to the side.

      Somehow I find myself indoors in some vast shifting building. I try to remember my DV LD competition goals and recall one about hobbies. I find a whiteboard on a wall and take one of the dry erase markers nearby and start drawing. There's already a bunch of writing and some doodles on it shifting around. I see a doodle of an anime face on it and try to do the same. It's difficult because with every stroke the dry erase marker changes color and the drawing "wiggles", turning into something almost but not quite the same. I manage to finish a very unimpressive drawing. I think it's the face of a girl with two small hair buns.

      At some point I try to fly but gravity gets in the way as usual and I slowly fall down, though this time I'm decently bouyant.

      Next I look around and think about trying climbing. I try to manifest some climbing walls as I scale upwards but all I get are sections of mall-like areas / food courts, dark blue and orangish. I'm pulling myself up the walls that I can reach -- they're made of some soft netlike material and are not quite vertical. Some sections are more like stairs. The indoors is more like an escher painting with nonsensical architecture than a regular building. I don't get anything more done when I wake up.

      I'm disappointed that my LD was short as usual. I decide to write down my dream on my phone before I forget in my usual notetaking app, which is correctly in dark mode with purple highlights, but there are weird outlined blocks of text that keep reappearing in my notes even after I delete them and I can't make much progress writing it down. I think this is a bit weird. Shortly after, I try RCing and it's actually an FA. I pull myself out of bed and exit through the window.

      I decide to make my way through the city like Spiderman. I make the web shooting sign with my hand and shoot webs to swing around a couple of buildings/skyscrapers and remember possibly talking to a friend about being able to do so in an LD. It's pretty fun though not as vivid as it could be. Eventually I find myself in some city streets.

      I call out in the street for A. (one of my characters), and some stocky latino guy with a buzzcut comes around the corner. He asks for my name first and I tell him. He says his name is Emilio [something]. I ask if he knows if A. is around and he says no, unfortunately not (with the implication that he's not in the dream world at all). I say it would be nice to get to chat with him. As we talk, I spiderman up a building and he follows, hauling himself up a metal awning with pure physical strength. I'm about to ask him further, but I wake up.

      I do the nose check again, realize it's an FA, roll out of bed. This time I grab the handset of a corded phone on a desk next to the window, or pretend to do so with the phone hand sign up at my ear. I don't call anyone specific, but an older woman responds. I ask for A. as I leave through the window and she says, one moment, can you put yourself on mute? I pretend to do so by "pressing" a button on my fake phone and making a "beep" sound. I have no idea if it works. It occurs to me (absurdly) that if I take a corded phone outside, the cord would get caught on the window and have a distance limit, so I switch to pretending to hold a smartphone instead. I walk around while waiting for the woman, ducking under some scaffolding. It's nighttime. I wake up again before I get an answer.

      it's another FA. I try to pause this time before leaving to try and stabilize the dream. I don't think it really helps but I look outside the window and it's a busy city street at night, with a bunch of residential brownstones across the street. There's an ambulance traveling backwards, possibly floating. The air is cool against my skin. I glance to my left and right -- I'm a couple stories up in some red brick apartment building. I half expect some other person to be leaning out their own windows at the same time, but there's no one in the adjoining apartments. I call out for both A. and E. (another character) but don't get any response. A group of people pass by below me and one of them is N. (an IRL friend) with longer hair than usual, his hair half up. I hop down and talk to him and say that I like his new hairstyle. He's about to respond when I wake up for real.
    6. Blindsided DILD

      by , 05-12-2024 at 01:42 AM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      My dream had ended and I got off my bed to go to my bathroom. I brush my teeth and began to put water on my face afterwards. When I came to my room I felt strange. I started having trouble seeing as if my eyes were being forced shut. I kept trying to open them but nothing I did work. I then began to think this must be a dream right now and I haven't truly woken up yet.

      Since my eyes were shut, I tried to use my hand to feel the walls of my room to eventually phase through my window. I wanted to see if that would cause my eyes to reopen. But as I kept trying to go through the window I lost lucidity.
    7. Exploration (LD)

      by , 05-02-2024 at 12:11 PM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      WILD sp

      I'm in bed and I notice something off. I open my eyes and see the distorted version of my room again; I can't move. I decide I don't want to explore directly out of SP because it tends to be very unstable. I close my eyes and begin playing a made-up song on the air guitar, paying the intense sensations no mind at all.

      DILD nose pinch

      I wake up in my parents' house and I'm now walking around. I attempt the nose pinch RC and I can still breathe through it. "Weird." I think as I continue walking around looking at the house. I do around two more nose pinch RCs and still don't realize I'm dreaming. I'm trying to reason with myself why it's not working. "I'm just not pinching hard enough." The 4th nose pinch I try to make sure that my fingers are actually closing my nose all the way and I'm pinching extra hard. I can still breathe.
      "This is a dream?" I think to myself. The house I'm walking around in looks identical to the one I grew up in. Everything starts to fade.
      I begin spinning. I notice the hallway leading to the bedrooms, then the living room, back to the kitchen. "Wow, I never thought it could be this real." I span a couple more times in awe about how everything was exactly where it should be.
      I get a bit excited and go down the hallway leading to the bedrooms. I throw open a door to see my brother J3. I turn the light on and that wakes him up, he looks kind of annoyed. "Don't worry J3, this is a dream!" He smiles and starts walking to me "Oh yeah?" He gives me a huge bear hug, picking me up. once he sets me back down, he tells me to follow him. He's walking down the hallway back to the kitchen when the dream fades completely to a brown/tan static, I think to myself I want to spin to stabilize but there's nothing to see, I must be waking up.


      Waking?

      I'm in bed again and my limbs feel weird, I think I'm awake and try the nose pinch, it works but I still feel off. I lick my finger and start tapping my nose. It all feels more or less how I would expect it to feel minus the strange vibrations. So, I close my eyes.

      Cat outside


      I wake up in my apartment to see my cat outside the window. *I've had the windows open because the AC isn't working* I run over and try to help her when I realize it's a random cat outside and it's trying to get inside the apartment. I'm not really sure what to do and I'm just watching the cat. Eventually the window screen comes loose, and the cat jumps inside, landing on the windowsill. My cat runs up to look at it and I get a bit worried and shoo the cat back outside. I close the window fully. The cat sees that and now has a human like scowl on its face, I find that hilarious and try to call for my brother J1 to come and look.

      I wake up.

      Note: Finally completed my goal of exploring a "real place" I really didn't want to believe I was dreaming because of how real it was, not just the house but my body as well.
    8. 16 Apr: Meeting family in the past and alternative timeline

      by , 04-16-2024 at 03:07 PM (Lucid-schizo-dreamer)
      non-dream dream semi-lucid lucid FA / AP

      False awakening in my teenage bedroom at my mom's. I check the time and it's 4 am. My mom is awake watching tv on the sofa and I find Riverstone sleeping on her bedroom for some reason. But I don't disturb either of them. I go back to my room and try to close the door silently. I feel strangely awkward to be here. But then I hear my grandpa's cane on the hallway and think "Oh, in this dream reality, grandpa is still alive?". So I open the door and I see him heading to the bathroom. My mom is helping him and surprised to see me awake. I decide to come out and say I'm happy to see them and ask them what year is this. They look at me as if I lost my mind. I insist and tell them I am not who they think I am, that I am a different version who comes from the future and is just dreaming this. They think I am mocking them and start to be upset, but still reveal that it's before 2020. So then I proceed to tell them what is going to happen, especially the pandemic, but also some natural catastrophes down the pipe, as proof I'm from the future. But of course, this will only prove correct when it actually happens.
      Then I notice some things don't fit exactly into my own timeline, so maybe this is a different timeline where those things don't happen. The house is in fact different. The laundry room doesn't exist, there are different rooms in different places, then I check the kitchen's window and realize this is a house on the ground floor and not on the 4th floor. Also, there is a forest outside covered in snow.
      Then i see in the distance that there is a forest fire, despite the snow. The fire is gaining strength and coming towards us. it is so intense that it is melting the snow and turning it into a torrent of water also coming towards us.
      I yell at my family that the house will burn in a fire and for them to pick up whatever is most important and leave. Then remember "Are there any pets?" and they proceed to name them and bring forward carriers to put them in. Some new aunt I never had IRL comes up with some small dogs and puts them in the carriers. Three go on the carriers and a 4th has to be carried by hand. Then someone says "Bring the monkeys!" and they come with a cage with two monkeys. Then I notice I am just in a t-shirt and underwear but there is no time to dress anything else as we exit the house. We take shelter in a huge hardware store in town.
      We stay there for a while and some pervert uncle I now have starts making advances on me, first offering me gifts and grooming me, then later cornering me in dark places of the store, trying to grope me. I avoid him and he starts chasing me. Although the store is working and people shopping in it, no one offers to help, it's as if we don't exist. I climb on top of shelves and let stuff fall on the ground, but everything is business as usual in the store. I take a run for the door through a long corridor and manage to lose him. Then cross some bridge over a river, not walking it through, but instead by hanging myself from under it as if it's monkey bars, because I don't want him to see me. On the other side I land in the middle of a group of students making plans to go to a concert and they invite me to go with them.
    9. Limb Manipulation, Minecraft (LD)-Night of 4/14/24

      by , 04-16-2024 at 02:52 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      Cyborg Hunt

      A couple of scientists were really sad when they found their cyborg was dead. After scanning it they, thought the "living" parts were counterfeit. Meaning that the alive half of the cyborg escaped. The DNA was very important to them. Eventually they found the living part and shrunk down to the size of cells. They were surfing on a glowing blue metal thing hitting corrupt parts of the flesh with a rod. The rod triggered an immune response and the surrounding tissue stretched out, forming tendrils that attacked the spots.


      Limb Manipulation

      I hear my brother call for my sister "J, come!" I'm facing a wall I know I didn't fall asleep looking at. "Ah I'm dreaming." I begin closing my eyes and twitching my fingers for a reality check, as I open my eyes, I'm floating in-between many false awakenings. I begin rubbing my hands together until eventually I stabilize in a void. It's different than normal though, it's hard to explain but it had depth to it. When I started flying up, I could sense that I was traveling through a three-dimensional area if that makes sense. "Minecraft, I want to visit Minecraft. What does Minecraft look like?" I began thinking to myself.

      Then all around me I began to see the World forming, bright, vibrant and blocky. "Time to experiment" I thought while bringing my hand up to block my left eye. Just like IWL I saw double, there was a transparent section followed by a solid more defined section of my hand. Satisfied by the results I brought my hand back down. The only thing was that only the solid portion of my hand was in my control. The translucent portion stayed behind and solidified as a large object next to the tree's that were in the background. "Maybe I can use this."



      I start heading in a random direction. "Cursed arm summoning." I imagine my arm reaching through the ground in front of me. I see it reach out and I can control it like my normal arm.



      I continue walking summoning more arms under my control. Spontaneously, I decide to try grabbing things with the arms and pulling as a way to boost me forward faster, it fails.

      "I can try to summon a husk for possession at this rate" I look at a distant mountain for the husk and find it. The arms are reaching out of the ground and it's pulling itself upward. It's now just standing still, it resembles an armor stand with missing textures. "A perfect blank canvas."



      I think about possessing it, then my body begins moving in 4 quick forward zooms, as soon as I'm about 20 feet away I finally fully possess it. I turn around to see the husk I left behind, it's now running straight at me. I hold my hand Infront of me and dismiss it into the abyss below, it falls.

      I start looking around the top of the mountain and hear a Girl talking.

      "You wouldn't believe how much a chunk with a Lemon and Apple tree cost me, zero!"

      "This is my chance to talk to a DC," I started thinking to myself about what I should say or even how I should talk. "Just say something, idiot." I focused.

      "Oh my dear, that must have been expensive!" My words came out delayed, and I noticed I sounded extremely posh and had a British accent.

      "Didn't you hear me?" she questioned. "It cost zero!"

      "Oh well, I seem to have misheard what you said. That's fantastic!"

      "It's simply horrible! On top of that, I have to live next to the river where I can go boating anytime as well!"

      "Now, now, don't want to get too exuberant about the river now, shall we?" I quipped, breaking a few blocks in the chunk as we spoke. The sarcasm was nice, and she seemed to be happy.
      I saw some artwork hidden in the blocks I was breaking.

      I wake up.

      The day before this dream I was car-pooling with my family to my sister's 40th birthday in Dallas, it was a 4 hour drive and I was using active imagination for some spells I could cast in a dream.
      I thought my spells could link to something I already know how to control, like my arm moving I thought. So I came up with a few spells. Here are two.

      Cursed Arm Summon:
      Summons an arm out of the ground that I can control. The arm can be grabbing an object as it comes out, such as a sign or tree and use it to swing around.

      Cursed Husk Summon: First summon the arm, then imagine it's pulling it's self out of the ground fully. The idea is have it do something that you want, or possess it for short range teleportation. It's important that the summoned arm is under your control. *My brother suggested that possessing a husk should leave a body behind, and it would attack me.*

      I basically had around 8 hours of active visualization imagining what it would look like.

      Besides that I wanted to try and put my hand in front of my left eye to see what would happen in a dream.

      Just open your eyes WILD
      I'm in the void as I enter the dream, I start flying upwards and let myself drop and begin falling, I decide that I'm just going to open my eyes.
      Like the last time I tried opening my eyes in the void I see that I'm in bed unable to move, but instead of closing my eyes and trying to wake up I imagine moving, it works. I begin rubbing my hands together to gain some stability but fail. I'm now stumbling through a dark distorted version of my room again there are lots of burst of ringing, I attempt the nose pinch RC and I have no hands, good enough. I see some rags or paper on the ground and remember my first three step task and banish them. They just blink away revealing the floor.

      I wake up

      Note: I'm not sure if this is me turning SP into a dream, a false awaking, or something else.

      I slept pretty well.
      All of my LDs thus far have been through WILD.

      Although I am able to get LDs fairly easily I'm still relatively new when it comes to lucid dreaming, before the contest I just let myself naturally have them when I could "sense" I was able to have one.

      I have this fearful feeling like "wow, I'm going to lose my mind." But I know I'm not losing my mind, I'm just becoming aware of it and feeling afraid.

      Uncontrolled Drifting: WILD
      I'm drifting through this building. Floating up through the ceiling from one floor to another. I'm rubbing my hands together in an attempt to stabilize and gain control. The dream clarifies a bit but when I go to land back on the floor I just phase right through it to the floor below.

      *I wake up and remain still*

      School to Minecraft: WILD

      *Before I enter this dream, I'm telling myself I want to visit school.*

      I enter a school; the hallways are long and dimly lit. Everything is stable and I'm able to walk around for a while. I'm not really trying to do anything, and I get bored.

      what on your computer desk-dimschool.jpg

      I begin to fly at high speeds into the wall. I phase through it an now I'm in Minecraft and everything is bright. I remember my last three step task, Mass telekinesis, I see about 10 mobs and beckon them, they begin floating. I continue flying beckoning every mob I see, causing them to float and follow me. I see a hallway leading into the school I was just in and turn around to see them still following me like balloons and dismissively gesture the mobs.

      what on your computer desk-mass-telekenesis.jpg

      I turn back and land in the hallway, back to reality, I see someone and begin chasing them, it felt natural for some reason, they begin running away from me. I see them turn a corner and open a door, I jump into the air and attempt to stop them from closing the door by slowing down time, unfortunately that slows me down too. The door closes and I'm now frozen in time. I look around and see a monitor about 20 feet away, it has Minecraft on the screen, I'm able to control and play it from a distance. I stop after about 3 seconds though as I feel the dream ending.

      "Don't be fooled by a false awakening I remember last time"


      False Awakening?

      My eyes open and I can sense I'm not actually awake. Attempting to move my arms fails. "Sleep paralysis?" I've already decided the next time this happens I'm not going to close my eyes. Everything is very dark, moving like normal doesn't work so I imagine getting up and walking. It works, it doesn't feel like walking though, it feels like I'm just seeing through the eyes of someone I told to walk, it's very slow and takes a lot of will power to move.
      I'm now standing and I'm fighting back fear. The room I'm in looks like a distorted version of my room. The door to the living room here is much further away then it should be and there's no bathroom door. Continuing my struggle I open the door and can actually hear the creaking. I see the TV already has YouTube on it.


      *I set an intention for this exact scene, the next time I wake up in my apartment I'm going to get up and watch YouTube on the TV*


      The living room looks very distorted, and everything is misplaced, movement feels more natural now, I go to sit down on the couch and read what's on the screen, "wok", "mill" and something else. It's just gibberish and I don't know how to play any videos.


      I wake up

      Note: I'm very close to completing my personal goals, I feel like I overcame my fear of retaining awareness after a false awakening, but I wouldn't consider this to be exploring a real place or watching YouTube.

      Also maybe I shouldn't chase helpless DCs if I want to talk to them.

      I was too anxious from the FA to fall back asleep; I considered stopping lucid dreaming I was so disturbed. My terror and dreams are separate things however, they can happen at the same time but they're not causally related.
      I'm not going to stop because I was afraid!

      It's around 4:15
      While laying down relaxing I'm imagine myself walking in the dark. It starts to feel very real; I continue on and soon after each step I take gravity weakens until with a tap of the toe I'm sent into space. I float for a few seconds, "Well, why not visit Minecraft?" accepting the fact that I dream of it so often, I hear the sound effect of falling into a body of water.

      I still don't see anything so I imagine pressing a space bar on an imaginary keyboard so I can float up, just then I can see that I'm in a body of water. I make it to the surface and then float above the water. "What was my task?" it feels like the dream world is fading as I ask myself this question, I land then begin focusing on the tree's and notice some tall green Mario pipes with a 2d image of Kirby on them. Everything stabilizes.



      "Element control!" I turn back to the water and command, "Rise water, rise!!!" I bring my hands in-font palms facing up and raise my hands. A medium portion of the water is reacting but only lifts about six feet into the air, never disconnecting with the body of water.



      Satisfied I turn back to the Mario pipes and think about what else I can do, I phase through the Mario pipe to look inside, in the center of the pipe where the ground meets, I see another 2d image of Kirby.



      I fly back up in the air and circle the area just taking in everything. The dream begins to fade.


      *I think I wake up, I want to grab my phone after the lucid so I can record an audio file.*

      I sit up in bed and hear a swooshing sound and feel off, I reach for my blanket and when I grab it, I immediately notice that I can't actually feel anything. The blanket moved so realistically, I'm filled with a sense of terror, "Is my brain messed up?" "Am I awake but my body is asleep and that's why I can't feel anything?" I'm questioning my sanity at this point and simply decide to lay back down and close my eyes.

      I wake up.
      I should have known it was a false awakening and remained calm, the light was on, I heard strange sounds, I couldn't feel the blanket.
      This was my first time moving around while fully conscious in a false awakening and it really caught me off-guard.

      lucid

      I used wild to enter the dream.

      I felt my body floating as I transitioned into sleep, it felt like I was floating upward as visuals started to appear, it was Minecraft again. The terrain was unnatural and there were layers of floating land masses that were built using a single layer of dirt at various heights.

      Music?-minecraftld.jpg



      There was an unrecognizable song playing as I was floating, I couldn't control the melody, but I was in control of the vocals. It was euphoric. "I will remain calm" I injected into the song's lyrics. I didn't want to wake up from excitement.

      I landed on one the highest floating blocks and began running forward, jumping to new blocks I looked down and could see my legs, they looked like my normal legs I noticed. I could feel my excitement growing as I continued running. I wanted to calm down a bit more, so I decided to turn around and see what was there.

      As soon as I did though, everything went black, and I could now feel body hallucinations as I became aware of my body. I opened my eyes and could see through my eyes as I was lying in bed and couldn't move, I thought this was a false awakening because the light was on in my room and I left it off, I was still disturbed because I couldn't move and closed my eyes again to finally wake up.


      Note: I need to stop derailing my dreams before they become grounded.

    14. Answering Jamie's difficult question.

      by , 03-19-2024 at 11:08 PM (MoSh's DJ: The Best Dream Journal in The Universe.)
      Cold has finally started to go away, Yay!

      The other night. Asked for Raven's help again to break Jamie out of the jail thingy I dreamed about.

      Shove

      I'm walking in a crowded city I'm crossing a street. At the corner there is a tall display, displaying some advertisements and media. Someone nudges or shoves shoulder and keeps on walking. I see it's the back of Jamie walking away she kind of looked back at me for a second and kept walking. Well that was rude! Reminds me of Highschool, when people didn't like you, They'd "accidentally" shoulder shove you from behind.

      Demon


      Me and 3 other people are chasing a demon at night. It's short, pale, and has gremlin ears. We corner it in a car wrecker place. It vanishes and I see it's latent image down various rows. "It's slowing time." I tell everyone, "It's playing out every possible scenario we can throw at it." My memory fades after.

      Speechless


      I'm walking outside a bar in a small town. Street reminds me of the Didsbury bar stretch with two bars on opposite sides. I'm on the JD's side Jamie is standing outside by the door, and walking past nervously. Some other girl standing outside starts talking trash to me. I can't remember what she says. Jamie grabs me and pulls me close and tells the girl. "Robert is the sweetest, most patient and caring man I've ever known." the shock of hearing this wakes me up. If Jamie ever gave me a compliment like that IRL... I would die!

      Last night

      big house

      False awakening, I'm in a large house and have to pee. There are various rooms and people all over. I can't find a bathroom so I go downstairs. I wake up for real of course.

      bed

      I'm sleeping in the same bed as Jamie, she is sitting up and I am lying down. She says to me, "Slip it on." Okay. Isn't it more like ,"Roll it on."? I woke up there.

      Jamie's question

      I see Jamie in the familiar black space, she is staring seriously at me and asks, "Are you having a relationship with me in your head?"

      I don't even begin to know how to answer that. but I will try as truthfully as I can. If she means by in my head as in dreams? Thats already been stated. If she means by talking to a voice in my head that sounds like Jamie. Short answer: For the past two months or so, Yes. That's what her voice in my head has stated. I'll ask her voice, "But this is crazy! If I see and talk to Jamie IRL, am I to talk about this?" To which she will answer, "We are to discuss everything.". This is why i'd really like Jamie to talk to me, to get clarification. If I should be seeing a psychiatrist, I'd really like to know. I'd like to get past this stuff, with or without her. Do I believe it's really Jamie? I don't know. I've been stuck with this voice for the past several years. I've tried to pray it away so many times among other things. After a certain amount of time, It's now just a thing that is a part of my current existence that I live with. If one is to do a google search on: Hearing my twin flame's voice in my head. It will lead you to loads of Quora articles where people do indeed experience this phenomena. some of them confirming with their partners that: Yes both of them will experience something like a telepathic conversation in one another's heads. Now, what I want to know is why is Jamie asking this? One possibility is that: She reads my dreams journal and reads dream her is talking and acting like we are in a relationship, she's also read that I hear a voice like her in her head, She puts two and two together and decides to use dreams to ask me this question. or, She's asking because She experiences it too. So I could equally ask her the same question. In any case I would like this to be resolved soon because this is becoming a complicated mess. I will still try to be patient tho.
    15. Training Psychological Fortitude With a Demon

      by , 02-12-2024 at 10:52 PM
      Disclaimer: This dream journal is about sleep paralysis/demon encounters. I want to clarify that sleep paralysis and intense nightmares like mine aren't normal, nothing about this is normal. I don't recommend that anyone attempt to do this. I've been dealing with SP and demon encounters for over 20 years. It's not something to take lightly or recommend, this is just my own very personal dream life that I'm sharing.

      I also want to point out that there's a lot of misinformation in the LD community about LDs causing sleep paralysis, despite how useful LDs are at combatting SP. lucid dreaming didn't cause my SP. Rather, lucidity is the way I've learned how to get out of SP/nightmares and this dream shows how.

      Anywho.

      As I fell asleep consciously, I felt a demon's claws sinking into my back. Its nails brought an uncanny electrical sensation through my spine, as if a poison was being injected into my spinal cord directly, shooting straight through my nervous system to the rest of my body. This caused waves of pain with occassionally intense spikes, growing more and more intense by the moment. It was dreadful.

      The demon was standing behind me (I normally sleep on my side). I don't know if I was paralyzed because I didn't try to move. My goal was to combat this mentally through calm meditation, not physical struggling.

      I already know how to break SP with physical movement, and that's not what I wanted to do here. This was a planned encounter. I invited a demon to induce SP.

      "This is fine. Keep going." I thought in my mind, wanting the demon to continue as I practiced my mental fortitude to combat the feeling, mentally wrestling with it and pushing it out of my mind. It was overwhelming, but I kept going.

      The demon cranked the pain up a tenfold. I started getting severe spikes of pain going through my nervous system every few seconds, increasing in frequency. I stayed calm and still didn't react despite the pain.

      I've been inviting this demon to come visit me in my sleep for a few weeks now. Why? Because I'm stagnating, I've exhausted my the resources of my personal dreamwork and I can't figure out how to push myself any other way... I need to grow, I have to keep going. My life is a mess right now and I'm desperate to become stronger so I can deal with it.

      The demon stopped after a while, since it wasn't breaking me. I felt its energy fade, and I too was fading into a dreamed version of my bedroom. The color of the walls, lighting, and layout of the house slowly changed in the emergence of the dreamscape. I was still technically my house, just an altered version of it.

      I felt an uneasy presence in the room and knew the demon was still standing somewhere nearbby watching me, invisible and waiting.

      I decided to walk out into the livingroom. This part I'm not going to share because it's too personal, but one of my insecurities manifested in the next dream scene of loved ones yelling at me, and it quickly snowballed. My calm demeanor slipped as I felt my mind spiral out of control from the insecurities. I was upset. In that moment of clouded thinking, I actually lost my lucidity.

      This was not normal. It's rare for me to lose lucidity when I'm upset. This went on for a few minutes before I regained my lucidity. Being upset normally triggers lucidity for me, so I got it back pretty quickly.

      I felt the demon laughing at me, though, and realized it did that on purpose. Impressive, I thought, but I was still freaked out. I realized that this demon had found one of my weakness. It couldn't get me with sleep paralysis and pain, so it had (successfully) targeted a psychological weakness instead.

      Challenge accepted.

      I quickly walked into another room, intending to change the dream scene to get myself out of that negative emotional state. If I could calm down, I could regain control and prevent the demon from weakening me any further.
      This was kind of thrilling, I have to admit. I like playing these mental games, and learning from my mistakes.

      I suddenly woke up for seemingly no reason, which is unusual for me. I typically always have a reason for waking up, whether because of an alarm, the natural end of a dream, a nightmare, or my own intention to awake... I don't just 'randomly' wake up from my dreams.

      So I sat up in bed, unaware that this was a false awakening, which is AGAIN unusual for me. I haven't fallen for an FA in a while, yet this time, I really thought I was awake.

      Now nonlucid dreaming, I walked back out into the livingroom and ANOTHER one of my insecurities manifested. Some of my personal embarrassing text messages were revealed to people I didn't want to share them with! Thinking it was really happening, I was mortified. But then I became lucid again (since negative emotions normally trigger lucidity for me) and was incredibly relieved that this embarrassing moment wasn't actually happening.

      The demon was laughing at me pretty hard though. I knew it had tricked me into having an FA and being nonlucid.
      I suddenly woke up again. The demon was trying it's trick a second time.
      "No. Not this time~" I told myself, laughing maniacally.
      Fooled me once, shame on me...

      I was kind of unsure though, so I did a reality check and it failed. My hands were solid.
      Whatever. I don't trust reality checks anyway, so I wasn't nonlucid just yet.
      I tried to use dream control next, going to fly upwards towards the wall. Normally my dream control works, but this failed too.

      "Huh... " I thought, starting to believe I might actually be awake...
      Reality checks and dream control can fail, though, I thought, so I still wasn't fully sold on this being waking reality. I was really thinking hard on this one.
      Could still be a dream.
      I was determined to not be tricked again and I was pretty sure that my uncertainty meant this was for sure a dream.
      What a puzzle.
      I normally ALWAYS know when I'm dreaming, so this was... really weird.
      The weirdness of it alone made me even more suspicious.

      I proceeded to have several more false awakenings, over and over again. Sometimes I knew it was a dream, and other times I wasn't sure, but I felt like the demon was flipping a light switch back and fourth repeatedly trying to break my lucidity.

      "Mother-" I cursed and laughed.

      Normally I'd be fine continuing this game, it was fun, but I knew I had to get up early in the morning and didn't want my sleep quality to be obliterated tonight (lucidity doesn't affect my sleep quality, but nightmares like this can when they go on for too long).

      So I decided I was going to end this by waking myself up.

      First, I found an alter for the demon in the dreamscape (which had offerings on it). "Thank you, that was impressive. No hard feelings~" I said to the demon as I destroyed the alter, shoving the whole thing off the table and breaking the artifacts.

      Then I woke myself up (for real). I checked the physical reality clock and realized... That whole thing only lasted an hour?!

      It felt like 4+ hours had gone by, so I was shocked. This is also unusual of for me, since I've specifically trained myself to not experience time dilation (I don't like when my time perception in dreams doesn't match waking reality).

      I reached for the protective pendant I keep on my desk (which keeps demons away, but I had intentionally taken it off before bed as an invitation). It was shoved under my photography lightbox for some reason, kind of wedged under there (not where I put it, but ok). I was going to put it on when I realized the chain was torn off.

      This was in waking reality. I searched high and low for the necklace chain. I found the chain on the floor and put my pendant on, did some other protection stuff in the room, and went back to sleep.
      Had normal dreams for the rest of the night.

      Final note: this dream happened the night before last.
