    False Awakening

      Spontaneously got lucid when I was walking down a corridor with a dark carpet (can't remember what happened before). From the distance a well-known person from my field of work was talking to me, offering a closer collaboration on one project. As I got closer I came into a large, strange room like a foyer but all surfaces were glossy white with only some brightly green accents. My colleague was standing there, looking different than in reality. I thanked her for the offer and agreed on her plan, then I walked on towards the entrance.
      I went down some white stairs and thought of trying to meditate in the dream, with the TOTM in mind. So I sat down cross-legged but I hadn't considered the slippery, tilted floor that made me slither towards the doors. I moved a little to the side and tried again, simply sitting down and focusing on my breath. As soon as I did so, things got intense fast. My surroundings dissolved almost immediately and I started spinning in all directions through space and time. Next I focused onto my feelings, and all I felt was a strong sense of certainty.
      Then I was back in bed, seemingly awake as everything was far too real. Of course I was still dreaming.

      Woke up after ~8 hours of sleep but still felt tired. While falling back asleep I made a half-hearted attempt at WILD but didn't succeed directly. What followed was a sheer chaos of dreams, false awakenings and short lucids. In one dream I was at a beach I've been to several times. It was warm but very windy with high waves. I was heading towards the sea when I suddenly went lucid. The dream got unstable rather quickly and I couldn't see my surroundings anymore. I kneed down and touched the sand around me which I could still feel though it wasn't as warm as I expected it to be.
      I woke up, still feeling close to dreaming. I turned onto my back which was probably a bad idea as I fell into SP almost immediately. This was the first time I've experienced sleep paralysis related to lucid dreaming and only the second time ever. It wasn't exactly frightening as I managed to remain calm and didn't hallucinate any dark figures etc. But breathing felt difficult and my body alternated between seemingly sinking down and being lifted upwards. After some time I felt my dream body separating completely and I could get up. It was pitch dark, so I tried to turn on the lights but the switch wouldn't work (no surprise here). I was at my parents' house, so I left my bedroom and went through the house. The other rooms were brighter with the sun shining through the windows. I got into the kitchen were my mother was standing. We had a small conversation with me having trouble to speak in the beginning. She asked if I came there to fetch her. I wondered what this means and asked: Should I? Shen then told me that it was R.'s birthday (a friend) after all. This surprised me quite a bit and while still trying to figure out what's going on I woke up.

      After some weird non-lucid dream I found myself lying in bed with the radio playing in the kitchen. That was kinda suspicious as I don't have a radio in the kitchen. So I figured this must be a dream and got up. The room was only dimly lit and the dream started collapsing but I remembered to stabilize by interacting with my surroundings. I touched everything close by (floor, walls, a blanket, a suitcase) which felt utterly realistic and listened to the radio (there were commercials). Thinking that jumping out of the window on the third floor would probably still wake me up I decided to leave through the door. I went there, still touching the walls on the way. As I've done this before I wanted to pass through the door without opnening it but both my body and the door appeared to be too solid. I was determined to make this work, so I went back a few steps and focused intently on the door. By doing so, everything became much clearer and my lucidity increased, too. Then I jumped through the door though I got stuck a bit and had to fight my way through. On the other side I got into the staircase.
      Walking down the stairs I remembered the TOTM, stopped and imagined a rope before me. As soon as I grabbed it, it appeared before my eyes. It was just a thin string but that didn't bother me and I started climbing up (forgot that it shall pull me somewhere). It was well fastened so I got quickly up to the roof. Suddenly the rope loosened and I fell back down onto the stairs. I pulled on the string; it got longer and longer until the thin part changed to a thick rope. Then it was stable again and I started climbing up once more. I got to the roof which was dome-shaped. Somehow I thought the rope would just reach higher into the sky. But when I climbed outside through an open window in the dome I saw that it was stretched in this height across the landscape, all the way I could see until the horizon.
      I grabbed the rope again and climbed along into the distance. Soon I got to a meadow in front of a forest. Looking down I realized it was crowded with small living creatures. Of each kind there was a couple so I was reminded of Noah's ark (btw I'm not religious). When I looked even closer I realized that these were some strange creatures. There were two oversized brightly yellow ducks, a pair of raccoons with christmas caps and a couple of garden gnomes amongst many others. All of these were clearly alive. Over this astonishing sight I forgot about the rope, sank down to the meadow and felt the dream fading.
    4. Parking Lot Problems DILD

      by , 01-31-2020 at 09:13 PM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      I was driving in this parking lot where this guy blocks me from reversing. It was the only way out as there was a building in front of me. So I look in my car view mirror and saw two guy's in hoodies with their hands in their pockets approaching my car. I immediately got out of my car and tell them what's the problem. I kept backing up and realize I am in a dream and was trying to change the dream scene by falling flat down to the ground.

      However the scene would keep going back to the two men pointing guns at me. I laugh and told them you still have guns with you. I decided to try to wake myself up which resulted in a false awakening.

      Dream Fragment:

      I was at my old home or some version of it. I was at the entrance hall and it was a bit dark but still daytime, suggesting it was the time just before sunset. H was there, but H looked like this actress from a TV show instead. She was crouched up in the middle of the room, in front of the dark stained wardrobe and I crouched next to H and started to cuddle, giving her a kiss and feeling how different her body was compared to what I should remember.

      There is a transition and I'm outside, it's daytime but probably more around noon now. I remember walking by a few places that were altered from how they should be, namely D's building and its entrance. There were quite a few people there and I remember making small talk for some reason, but no idea what about.

      I kept wandering the streets of my home town and eventually after going through a few streets that don't exist and a wall turning into an open street, I started to become sort of pre-lucid and gained some dream-control, not consciously thinking about it. There was a square or plaza of some kind, surrounded by short two or three story buildings, as expected, and people were just going about their business. But I wanted to feel alone and solemn in this place for some reason, so I snapped my fingers and most of them disappeared. A woman and her young boy didn't.

      I snapped again, wanting rid of her from the scene. She wouldn't go. She walked up to me and started becoming antagonistic and asking why I wanted her to go. I didn't explain myself (perhaps I didn't know why either) and I eventually conceded and said "fine, if you won't leave, then I will", so I walked away across the plaza and into a small tunnel lit with fluorescent lights and as I did, she paced up quickly behind me, pushing me against a corner, hurting me, and twisting my right arm and gripping my bottom.

      She said something that I can't remember word for word, which basically summed up to be about how I often am careless with caressing and cuddling H (making me cause pain by complete accident), and despite the pain she was inflicting on purpose, I laughed at its irony. In that moment, I felt a dire need to go to the bathroom, and I falsely woke up, then getting up from bed and going to the bathroom, and just as I sat on the toilet, I was in bed again, as if that was only imagined, but the urge to use the bathroom was suddenly gone.

      Then I woke up truly and double checked how I felt, realising it was all just very realistic dream sensation.


      Some notes:


      • This dream wasn't particularly vivid in terms of visual clarity but the physical sensations were quite strong overall.
      • The woman who wouldn't go was some sort of anima manifestation. Often it isn't so antagonistic but her look was distinct from previous appearances, mostly marked by her shoulder-long hair being black this time. Her face was more chiselled, too. It was simply a more raw and aggressive look in general; ironically enough, what I would expect from my home region.
      • Though I had some dream control, it was completely non-lucid. I could feel myself having some sort of pre-lucid thoughts but they didn't rise up enough for me to start gaining lucidity.
      • The woman's young boy reminded me of myself when I was younger, but his role in the dream seemed to be minimal. He seemed to be there pretty much just to characterise the woman as a mother, as he pretty much just went off playing in the street without a care for what was happening.
    6. Well.

      by , 01-18-2020 at 05:15 AM (Awake to take in the view...)
      I wrote in my dream journal a lot this week, but did so in poor lighting, with poor posture, and while half asleep so I can't read most of it now.

      So this is what I can gather, from this week. I had quite a few vivid dreams for some reason.

      - Some sort of Star Wars like dream. There was a "ghost wall" or invisible shield, and a desert on an alien planet. I was an intergalactic warrior of some sort, I think. Or traveler.
      - I had a dream about lucid dreaming, which was pretty cool. In that lucid dream, I flew over the ocean. However, I had somewhat of a false awakening after that; I think into a previous dream?
      - A dream about Brandon Sanderson (who I am currently taking a class from!), which involved horror, a false awakening (possibly the same one as before?) and a boardwalk!
      - The boardwalk had a very cool looking thrill ride, with two huge spinning cars. A friend of mine was there, and my brother.
      - I dreamt that the local amusement park had moved closer to me, so I could walk to it! I could also fly.
      - something about the Little Mermaid? lol
      - something about a creepy mirror
      - season pass to something (maybe the boardwalk or amusement park?)
      - Dreamt that I was falsely accused at work for making obscene jokes. This is funny because we do this all the time at work and no one cares.
      - Two other guys I knew from the past, "Dylan" and "Maz", as I'll call them, were...working? I can't read my handwriting.

      I swear I normally have nice handwriting. Just not when I wake up at 3 AM to write a dream down. D:

      I'm still gonna count that false awakening one as lucid, though!

    8. GrandMother Of The Dreams DILD

      by , 01-05-2020 at 10:25 PM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      I found myself in a false awakening and awoken again. I got out of my bed and was began talking to my grandmother who decided to check on me. She asked me would I like to eat any chicken and I replied with yes. She then ask me would I like anything else with that and I told her no. She insist on asking me again and I was like nah. So she made herself out the door so i could get myself together and head out of this crib.

      As I got myself out of bed and walk in to the living room. I could see my father in another room and saw my grandmother in the kitchen. I went in to the restroom in the living room. I began to look at myself in the mirror and notice my hair was definitely a mess after sleeping for so long. I began to put water on my hands and tried to slick my hair back but it wasn't doing anything. So I began to feel funny about all of this.

      I started to question stuff like who am I and what have I been doing all this time. That's when I didn't really trust where I was and the idea to check my fingers came to mind. I could hear my grandmother voice walking pass the door I am in saying the food is done in the kitchen. I look at my fingers to see it's all distorted and bent like. That's when I knew I was in a dream and that I needed to do different things.

      I got out of the restroom and could see my grandmother going up the stairs. That's when I ran to the door and phase through it and was outside. It was night , all of sudden I could hear my grandmother feet walking down the stairs and began banging the front door. She knew I was awake and I could her presence getting closer to me. I decided to try to fly but I felt it failed and I lost my concentration. That's when I experience another false awakening.
    9. Giving birth and other dream fragments

      by , 12-23-2019 at 08:40 PM
      As a man this was a particularly strange dream. I first remember being at the hospital and going into labor. When I looked in the mirror however I looked really skinny and didn't feel pregnant at all.

      Nevertheless, I was rushed into an operating room. I wondered how I would give a birth without a vagina. I think I actually grew a vagina at this point and my stomache had a weird feeling in it. Then I felt like I was going to have an extreme bowl movement.
      A huge push and release and then out came the baby with all sorts of disguisting vile and feces. Additionally, there was this huge alien rock looking thing that came out as well. The doctors immediately took that away and gave me the baby.

      Then dream skips a bit and I am at a department store lying on the ground wondering where my baby is. I face timed some strangers and they put my baby on there. They were taking care of my baby. I felt angry about this but too scared to ask for my baby back. I lied on the floor of the department store sobbing and weeping hoping someone would help me get the baby.

      In the next part of the dream my sister and I were going to a music festival. There was some guy in our house who seemed to be using us just to get a ride their and back. I told him he could find his own way home.

      Later I was watching a spy movie and got absorbed in it. There was a scene involving an office with a bunch of spies sitting around. An authority figure said he had a new top secret mission but would only accept the best of the best. All the spies started going around the room referring to themselves as "The gardener" and then a number (indicating rank) and bragging about their achievements.

      It turned out this secret mission was a trap to lure all the office spies into a torture chamber. The authority figure apparently that they were double agents from russia.

      There was an establishing shot of torture devices on the wall such as water picks, drills and so on. Gyms often have metal bar contraptions with ropes attached to them that people used to do rope and body weight resistance exercises. This is what the victims were attached to. Every victim was wearing what looked like extremly tight green
      latex type material, but the front of their head looked like a tight version of a mask that a fencer might wear. The torture master poured water onto the mask of one of the victims who started struggling. There were many spies just hanging their life less on the bars. A new victim was brought in begging to be let go and even offering to give information. He was forced up a latter and into a coffin like device but in the shape
      of a human body with a little face portion for his head. The head portioin was covered with small nails and two large nails for where is eyes would be. He begged not to go in but the closed the coffin on him and he screamed "my eyes my eyes".

      I then remember him being removed and stuffed into one of those green latex suits left hanging their to be tortured further.
    10. Tay K 2 DILD

      by , 12-15-2019 at 02:50 AM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      I'm with Tay K and another rapper we were with in chicago got shot and killed not far from us. I became lucid for a brief moment and knew I was dreaming. I then lost lucidity while walking around the block in the snow. So I decided to direct him to a near by store telling him how much of a mistake it was to bring him here. That's when we started chilling at the store looking at random stuff. A girl then approach me and we began talking. I pulled out my phone to get her number and to keep her as a contact. I then became lucid again and realize that I had to be dreaming.

      I wonder where Tay K was and had a false awakening afterwards.
    11. Stuck in the Shadow Realms

      by , 12-13-2019 at 12:40 PM (Break the code, break the node)
      It all started with a brief paralysis I had. I woke up from it so I thought no LD today either, and went to sleep normally.
      The coming dream is hazy for me so I don't remember much. But I know that there was this girl whos presence brought me some kind of peace and for this I started to speculate
      that this girl may be god or a form of a higher force, and that I may learn something important from her , so I tried to get near her to talk to her
      That's when it started
      I found myself at home, figured I woke up , then I went to look out the windows and saw that there are no streets anymore anywhere,
      just endless heaps of trash, and endless amount of trash men picking up stuff. Also there was a mild fog .
      I didn't become lucid yet, but I found it weird that there are no streets. Then I woke up again, I don't know how many times I woke up, but things got more creepy and grotesque and darker.
      And then I ended up in what I call the shadow realm. I kind of became lucid because I realized its morning in real life , but here there was total darkness.
      the lights in teh whole house were flickering , giving a deeper orange faint light with a reddish hue , I felt like theres a dark presence in the dream the whole time but nothing turned up.
      I went to door to check out the street, it was like in real life but all the lights were off ,so it was just total darkness with a little bit of a faint red light coming from the sky, I could barely see anything.
      But I saw that there are shadows 'dancing' all over the street, but none of it attacked me or anything. I quickly closed the door and went back in. I didn't know what to do.
      I said that I guess I'm like Alan Wake , stuck in a dream, never knowing if I actually got out or if it's another dream.
      𐤏𐤄𐩤𐤐 𐤁ߣ𐩤ߖߖ𐤏 𐤓𐤏𐤓 ߡ 𐤓𐤁𐤓 𐤅ߡ 𐩤ߖߖ 𐤂𐩪ߖ ߡ 𐤓𐩪𐤉ߖ𐤄

      I entered the room laid down and tried to wake up
      from there on my recall gets bad again
      I woke up a few times in another instances of my home , once I woke up for real and then slipped back into the shadow realm then at a point I thought I'm done for, and prayed
      and then
      I finally woke up

      It was my first instance of being unable to wake up, it was really weird and scary...
    12. The Next Stage BB+DA+WBTB+GA+MILD+WILD

      by , 11-24-2019 at 11:58 PM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      As I continue laying in my bed beginning to lose the feeling of my body. I all of a sudden get suck in to a dream scene. It was night I could feel myself grounded now and ask myself did it work. I look at my hands and look up at the sky and said yes I'm here. There a was guy getting in to a light tan car. It was nighttime, the sky had a blemish northern light appeal to it with some random orange to it. I thought it look very beautiful. I began walking on the side walk and remember to try to stay stabilize in the dream.

      I began rubbing my hands together and focus on the idea that I was indeed dreaming. As I continue to walk I did feel a little nervous just knowing I was in a dream which is uncommon for me. I then not too long after felt someone tap my shoulder as I walk. I turn around to see who it was but it was no one there. I then attempted to continue walking but all of a sudden the shorts I was wearing got pulled down with some force.

      I tried to get it back up but instead something started pulling my entire leg down and made me hit face first to the road. This made me panic a little as I tried to stay in control of my awareness. The force was pulling me inside to the road and when I completely went through it I lost my awareness.

      I found myself waking up on my bed and assume I had truly woke up and didn't bother doing an RC. This was my mistake as it was truly a false awakening.
    13. Video Game into lucid

      , 11-20-2019 at 03:02 AM
      Me and W are listening to music on a tablet. She leaves the room and I start looking for a different song to put on. She comes back in and tells me she wants to show me something cool on a video game. She hits something on the tablet and things start coming out of the ground. All of a sudden the area we are in is much bigger than before. It's like we are inside the video game. I see this giant monster and I shoot it with a rifle that puts this large metal ring around the monster, basically tying it up and slowing it down. I think to myself I need to hurry up and kill it before it gets free. I go to shoot but I'm out of ammo. I swap weapons but it's out as well. The monster breaks free and morphs into a blue rhino. It charges at me and W. I realize that me and W are about to cornered into this room it's pushing us to. I take my rifle and push it against the rhino's horn and try to hold him back but he's way stronger than I am. As I'm struggling against him, he's slowly moving us more and more into this room that I'm trying to avoid. Then I think to myself, just imagine pushing him is effortless and so I do. I push as hard as I can while imagining he's weak and weightless. The rhino goes flying out of sight like a rag doll. I'm excited by this and I start low gravity jumping and flying around the building we're in.

      I'm no longer worried about being out of ammo cause I know I can handle whatever comes my way. I exit the building thru these barn like double doors. Once outside I jump about three stories into the air and I can see on top of the roof to the building I was just in. I kinda linger in the air for a sec and it hits me that this is a dream. I think to myself oh shit, ok stay calm…what is it that I want to do. Before I barely finish the thought I lunge forward into the air flying. But then I remember that I've had problems with cutting my lucids short in the past by going straight to flying and so I land and take a breath. I start with some little low gravity jumps and then transition into some low altitude flying. This seems to be working and I'm actually able to enjoy flying without immediately having the dream fade to black. However, I'm having trouble staying steady. As I fly my altitude is going up and down. I accidentally go thru the street, as in underground and then pop back up into the air, but I think because of going underground I expected darkness. Which caused my dream to start fading. I tried to hang on by looking at my hands, which kinda worked for a second but then the dream shortly faded.

      I thought I had woke up. I was in a dream version of my bedroom. I realized W wasn't in bed and I heard a noise in the hallway like the gate at the top of the stairs opening. I went to go into the hall to check it out, but then I found there was a gate inside the room before the door (which isn't there irl). The door and the gate were getting caught up in each other and I couldn't get the door open…Wake

      lucid , false awakening
    14. 12 Nov: Department store and false awakening

      by , 11-12-2019 at 03:23 PM (Lucid-schizo-dreamer)
      non-dream dream semi-lucid lucid false awakening

      At a department store. Going through different sections, checking clothes, then latest electronics and end up in the music and film area. Not looking for anything specific, but remember to take a look for Björk albums, since I don't buy cds for years. I find a cd which I didn't know, and check the inlay booklet. Looks nice, but I think it is one of those Björk albums which I don't particularly like and I wonder if I am willing to pay whatever it costs. But there is no price tag, so I need to go to the check-out with it.


      Then I have a FA and think I am in my bedroom. It is very dark, but once again I see this little purplish orb moving around the room. It is beautiful, but it also makes me feel uneasy. Since last time my teacher told me to swallow it, my first instinct was to do so again. So when it got near the bed, I opened my mouth widely and swallowed it. It went totally dark and then I woke up or entered a dream, I am not sure.
    15. Wow.

      by , 09-03-2019 at 03:30 AM (MoSh's DJ: The Best Dream Journal in The Universe.)
      in my last entry I dreamed of Vampires in an apartment building. Came across this on DV: https://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/lyd...-worlds-87650/ Was it shared?

      Jamie

      As if in response to my last entry. Jamie showed up in a dream. We were working together somewhere like a restaurant. I said it was time for my smoke break or something. She looked sad at that as I left. (Don't give up keep trying for the dreams).

      Wound up Walking down a street that was similar to one in didsbury. And older drunken man in a green jacket threw a can at me or something. I got mad at him but then he started trying to give me sage advice or something...

      Vacation gone wrong

      I was a part of a family that wasn't mine. We went to some secluded vacation resort. I was in a room and watching a TV and I saw that the family who owned the resort were planning to kill us. Why this was on the TV I don't know. I gathered everyone and confronted the Father dude. He transformed into a killer robot or something and killed us all. The dream rewound and I fought him again. This time doing a kung fu like sweep kick on him and I had him on the ground and broke his arm. He looked pissed but couldn't do anything about it.
