    1. Thought Battles

      by , 07-09-2019 at 02:12 PM (Random Awesomeness with Drop Therapy)
      I was writing a script for a documentary about my life after leaving the band I'm in. I was suffering from something called "thought battles" which plagued me constantly. Essentially, it was just fancy terminology for me being too mentally active to do anything and that eventually leading to pretty bad short term memory loss. I put my notebook down and started wondering around my room for ~5 minutes. I then went downstairs to see if water could help. When I got to the kitchen, I saw a kitten no more than a week or two old pass me, and then I started crawling on the ground. From down the hallway I could hear me grandma talking to her self, saying that she was from a location in real life that she doesn't actually live in. (keep in mind this is at around midnight). She then spots me and shouts "Hey!" at me. I am paralyzed.

    2. The Most Efficient Way to Delete the Universe

      by , 07-05-2019 at 04:04 PM (Random Awesomeness with Drop Therapy)
      I remember entering my room. On my computer there was an AI program that teaches itself to physically delete things. I turn it on with my peak nihilism in full swing and it starts.
      It starts as unrecognizable, but eventually I start seeing physical items be deleted, so I type !detention, and that pauses the program or at least makes it unable to operate. I unpause it and I get the most menacing "you" on my monitor screen possible, seeing as the list of items that are deleted goes up to the 12,000s. I try to type it again, but my keyboard was deleted, so I grab another one, but my struggles to plug it in were to no avail. All the while, pop punk/post hardcore-ish music was playing in the background.

      Trouble sleeping. Mind going haywire again

      Searching

      I go to look for Jamie but she's in a different town. I go there and she's in this dream where she's living a different life as some skater teen or something. She's too cool to even acknowledge I'm there. she takes off somewhere and I was going to look for her But I get caught up in other dream characters and their story line.

      fortdumb


      I keep dreaming of fortnite a lot where I keep getting wins. IRL I really suck at the game.

      Not again

      A dream audio only. A woman is saying like a newscaster that Jamie took her own life... Please no more dreams like this.

    4. Fever dreams | [18.06.2019]

      by , 06-18-2019 at 04:13 PM (Draeger's Dream Journal and Documentation)
      Side note: I was really sick when dreaming these and the dreams I get when I'm sick are often very vivid so I usually recall them easier than my other dreams. I seem to have forgotten a lot about these dreams, though.

      Slenderman survival w/ a friend
      I'm outside along with a friend. We own a mansion for shelter which is in the middle of the forest with paths leading around from the mansion through the forest. The next thing I remember is that we see static and start sprinting into any direction in the forest. As the static grows more intense, I remark that I don't want to play this 'game' anymore and that I don't like horror like this, before the slenderman popped out in front of me. I ran back towards the mansion, going in before my friend closes both doors, then swearing and quickly turning on the lights in the entrance hall. It's night now. We wait and I am scared of the fact that the slenderman can come out of the darkness and that the mansion is mostly dark.

      Next day, I go out wandering for some reason, before later on my way back hearing strong breathing coming closer. I don't know what it is, but luckily it's staying in the bushes for now. Shortly before the entrance to the mansion, my friend tells me that what I heard is something which has a generic male name which I don't remember.

      Skip to the monster running towards the house now. I run to the front door and quickly close it in third person view, using a cursor to close the doors. It's lagging so it's hard for me to hit the door, but I manage to do it, relieved as the breathing is right in front of the door but nothing came through. Though then I remember the side door left of me and also try to close that, but this time, it's lagging too much so I back away to a small table with a light on it. I think about going upstairs to hide, but it was too late. The breathing reveals itself to be a creepy dog-like creature which suddenly storms towards me, then I wake up. Soon after this, though, I fall asleep again. I don't remember the dream I got then, but when I woke up from that, I fell asleep once again and I remember that dream in many fragments.

      Fake lucidity, false awakening
      The next thing I remember is that I am in a strange place, a tiny bit of water seemingly flowing between two sidewalks, surrounded by brick walls running along very far. I do a reality check with my hand which doesn't work, so I try a nose reality check and I breathe through my pinched nose. Though, for some reason, I don't get lucid, I just dream about being lucid. I try controlling the dream, but nothing happened. Then I get a false awakening, before reentering the previous dream scene. I see another person who tells me something, while I try to control the dream again. I then end up in a sort of Subnautica scene, and then I don't remember anything else.
    5. Recurring False Awakening

      by , 06-17-2019 at 04:33 AM (What Will Lisez Today?)
      I had an inordinate deal of trouble getting to sleep last night... for some reason, I was insanely excited to LD, far beyond the motivation I normally feel, and so my heart was racing and I couldn't go to sleep. I tried every trick I knew -- reading, mentally reciting various text, meditating, random yoga poses, etc. -- but my body refused to relax in any way. I eventually fell asleep sometime around 4 AM, over four hours after I had gotten in bed.

      I awoke in my bed facing the wall and tried to turn around but found I couldn't move. I felt a strange burning/throbbing sensation in the back of my head. I was eventually able to turn my head painfully slowly towards the rest of my room, and after a minute or so, I was finally able (with considerable difficulty) to rise from my bed and walk towards the door to my room. Before I could reach the door, I "awoke" back in bed again. This repeated at least twenty times; in the dream I seemed to think that by the end I had been through the ordeal four hundred times at least.

      When I finally "woke up" for good within the dream, I found myself in a large single-room house with an assortment of relatives I barely ever see: my maternal grandparents, my uncle, and my old High School History Teacher (not a relative, but she was there for some reason). A few of my siblings were also there. We talked about some mundane topics for a few minutes. Then something happened involving a woman who had engaged in "activism" of some sort by making a video game about freeing animals from zoos. But this was all cut short when...

      I had the recurring FA again! It happened at least another ten times, all the way up to the possible seventy-six I believed had happened within the dream. On one of the FAs toward the end of the cycle, I grabbed hold of a chair in my room as I got up and knocked it over, hearing the loud sound it made as it hit the floor, and said to myself, "That's proof that I'm up for real this time!" It was not, since I rapidly went back to the FA. The worst part was that I didn't do even a single RC, owing to the dream-paralysis that made me unable to...
    6. Chest Pain

      by , 06-13-2019 at 08:00 PM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      I was walking along side my cousin and was showing her around the area. My captain at work was behind me for some reason and told me to follow him as he had something important he wanted to show me. I look back to my cousin and wave bye to her as I told her to go back home. As I am following my captain we enter an abandon warehouse and I notice only one light was lit. This look wrong to me and I began to enter a flight or fight mode. That's when a man in a hoodie and wearing a protection glow vest came out from the shadows. He held two guns both in each of his arms. Pointed at me and my captain. I look around for an exit and ran. I bust down through one of the doors and jump off a building not sure where I would land. I woke up from a nightmare and found myself unable to move on my bed. I notice everything in my room was darker than normal. And my bed was at the end corner of the wall. My eyes look up at the ceiling and my mouth was then force open completely by an unknown force.I became lucid and I started trying to close my mouth to no avail. Then the blankets around my neck started tightening. It began to crush my throat and I felt myself having trouble to breathe. I began choking in till I woke up again.
    7. Prisons and Precognitions

      by , 06-03-2019 at 04:12 AM (What Will Lisez Today?)
      Prison Complex

      I am in a large underground prison complex. I have been arrested and sent there for absolutely no reason; the people running the prison even admit this, but they're apparently doing some highly unethical tests on human subjects and wanted me for some kind of chemical experiment. (This is very similar to a book series I read when I was young, "Escape from Furnace"). I am chained to a small metal lift platform in the center of a giant hexagonal steel-lined shaft, and one of the guards presses down on my hand, which is bound in a cuff just above a red button, causing the button to be pressed and the lift to descend.

      We arrive at some sort of "junction level" containing a large number of dormitories and various common areas such as dining halls and bathrooms; this is the last "normal" level of the prison, and below it are the "laboratory levels" where the experiments are done and which are home to strangely deformed-looking beings. I remember one in particular that was purple and consisted of a torso with four legs coming out of the top and four legs coming out of the bottom, all at right angles to each other. (I once saw a sculpture similar to this IRL.) I will be shipped down for testing tomorrow; for the time being, I have to clean myself up and find a bed to sleep in for my last night of normal existence. The dream leaves off here.


      Dream Machinery

      I have received a primitive computer-like device running a rudimentary operating system similar to Windows XP. This device will somehow help me "tap into my dreams." I fall asleep while holding the device and pass into a "deeper dream" where it is powered on. It seems I have "one hand in a dream and the other in a nightmare" (remember the "Prison Complex"?) -- there is a diagram of a clock to illustrate this, showing the hour hand and the minute hand at right angles (either 3:00 or 9:00, if I remember correctly) -- which means I'm seeing or am going to see a vision of something that actually happened in real life.

      A calendar application pops up on the computer; I need to use it to count the number of days that have passed since the subject of the vision actually took place. I'm having some trouble doing so because this calendar is labeled in a bizarre fashion; last month was apparently called "Mercury (HL)," and the month before that was "Mercury (HG)." I eventually click a button that has the computer count for me, and I discover something strange -- this is a rare precognitive vision. I am currently seeing exactly fifty days into the future. I also happen to see that it is the twenty-first of the current month in the "real life" timeframe of the dream. I am about to click a button to "enter the vision"... but then I wake up (a little after 8 AM)!

    8. The creepy monster sang me a song! And then killed me.

      by , 05-24-2019 at 01:45 AM (Awake to take in the view...)
      Two nights ago, I had a dream about a creepy monster. It started out as an orange snake, female. Then it turned into an evil monster. Apparently, it was called a "ground Shrek", and despite the reference to a kid's movie, it was actually quite terrifying.

      It had glowing yellow eyes, and a mouth that was filled with sand. It sang a song as it began eating/killing everyone, and it went like this:

      "...And we shall be appointed view
      Of earth's eternal sleep."

      There were a few lines before it but I couldn't make them out. It kept singing this creepy ditty over and over again as it killed people, and its voice was now deep, masculine, and hollow. The song had a tune similar to a church hymn that I know, "Go Forth With Faith", which for some reason makes it even creepier.

      It raced towards me, and I couldn't get away in time. The last thing I heard inside of its mouth was this song, and I fell into the sand that fell even further into a black void. At that moment, I believed that I was facing death, and I would finally see what the afterlife was like, if it existed. Then I woke up. Terrifying, but cool.
    9. A lot of pressure DILD

      by , 05-22-2019 at 09:41 AM (Inner World حلم Gamma Waves)
      I got out of bed and the strong urge to check under my bed occured. I check under my bed and say a man body underneath the dark corners of my bed. I felt shock and suddenly out of no where a hand comes and grabs my ankle and starts pushing inside the bed. The shock causes me to gain lucidity and I tell myself there's no way this can be really happening. So I tried to wake myself up but instead the dream scene changes. I still have lucidity and can see myself in a dark hallway where I saw on the wrote something about incest. I decided to run up the stairway and see no way to cross over. I then hear something behind my and decided to jump off a high point in the stair way to the bottom of the floor. Once I hit the bottom after feeling the gravity bring down. Everything went black and then I woke up and check my phone. My phone showed that the only friend I ever had deleted me and this caused me to feel a sense of dread. I then wake up again

      Dream No. 587 - Money Multiplying Madness

      Nightmare!


      It was night time and I was driving around the area of Dandenong; I somehow met my brother there. We approached a fenced area and came across an old Asian man that gave us two $50 notes. Once I left the fenced area, I found two $5 notes as well; my brother asked me if we should give those back. At first we didn’t need to but after some hesitation, I thought we would go and give the $5 ones back.

      We arrived back at the fenced area to find the man but were met with a very nasty surprise. Cortex was violently chasing Crash and Coco but we ended up being chased as well and now, Cortex was particularly after me. At one point, I managed to hit him, repelling him slightly, but he would always catch up and be even worse than he was before. After a while of chasing, the dream moved scenes.

      It was still pitch black at night but I was now by myself in the study room of my house. I still had the money in my hands but something felt off. I could actually feel the money in my hands but rather being fascinated by this, I was rather concerned and actually freaked out. I decided that I would try to find 18-Volt and ask him if he could give some insight as to what was going on. I went past the front room and heard my mum snoring in there. At the same time, I tried calling for 18-Volt but my voice was very restricted.

      I walked into my parents’ bedroom and I actually see him sleeping in their bed. I tried to stay as quiet as possible as I slowly lifted the blankets and then got in under them to cuddle up next to 18-Volt. At first, as I lay down on top of 18-Volt, he felt like a teddy bear and I was starting to relax; but this feeling didn’t last long. I actually felt his body start to morph in an unusual way and this made me get alarmed. I quickly threw off the blankets and ran out of the room, slamming the door, thinking I had avoided the disaster to come; oh how I was wrong…

      The door opened again and out came 18-Volt but he was not himself. He was in his realistic Game & Wario appearance but wearing his shorts only and no glasses. The dream had somehow transformed him into a ginormous muscular zombie, having these incomprehensible growls, whose disposition scared the living daylights out of me. What’s worse is that the possessed 18-Volt was actually now coming towards me and it almost felt like he wanted me for dinner.

      At the corner of the stairs I am yelling something like “18-Volt! Stop!” but he didn’t seem to take notice. I now I had no other option but to defend myself. I attempted to push him down the stairs but he would not budge at all. Then out of frustration, I yelled, “Change to an accurate appearance!”. After squealing three times, I woke up from fright.

    11. 15 May: Feeling trapped, weirdo victorian musem and enemies at a foreign land

      by , 05-15-2019 at 02:08 PM (Lucid-schizo-dreamer)
      non-dream dream semi-lucid lucid false awakening

      At my mom's apartment, something happens and I need to escape. I run for the door and in the stairway I jump all floors through the empty space in middle of the stairs. I expect the chasers not to be able to do so and gain some time with that. But it is one of those recurrent dreams I have in which the ground floor has no exit to the outside and I just hide in one apartment that had the door open and a key inside. I lock the door behind me and look for a window. I find an enclosed balcony but then I open a window and jump, just to find I am inside another balcony and this repeats several times until I decide to control the dream and focus that when I exit the window I am really outside. Funny though, I am back on the top floor and not ground floor, but I fly away and hide behind nearby buildings so my chasers don't see me in the distance. Then I fly to the mountains nearby. I reach them at dusk and find a weird place covered in stone ruins and some people walking among them, like pilgrims, they don't seem dangerous, but they all are a bit mad. They let me be, but some are a bit too curious and pushy and I need to stay flying above them because I don't feel comfortable when they approach me.

      Then I am with Zilla and some other friend on a cruiseship, when we're hit by a huge storm. The ship gets dragged to the coast, enters a canal, ends up in the city of some foreign country. We are in our cabin, getting dressed to go out. It's night and it is a hostile place, but we chose to leave the ship and hide on land. We hide on some hill and we are found by a couple enemy guys. They are armed and I make a bit of a theatre that we are "defenseless confused little girls so please don't shoot us". Instead, they decide to have fun with us. One of them, a big guy, gets on top of me, but I punch him in the throat, then kick his balls, slightly slide down through his legs and apply all my force to throw him over my head and we manage to escape them.

      Then we are ok and safe and visiting a museum related to the Catholic church and full of Victorian things and morbid things related to death, all in silver and lots of lace and velvet. There is a section with a dead mummified dog in an exquisite coffin. It smells like a crypt.

      Me and the girls have settled at a home and we are living in peace. But one day we hear strange noises and we think we saw some guy moving around the house. Suddenly a very old police car stops at our door but the cops are dressed as prisoners with striped jumpsuits. We first suspect of them but they say they came to protect us as they claim to have followed a hired assassin that came to kill us and then we believe them.
    12. Worst nightmare I've ever had.

      by , 05-04-2019 at 07:53 PM (Awake to take in the view...)
      Non-lucid.

      This tops the nightmare I had about the haunted church with the demonic shrieking choir, and the dream about the wasps crawling out of my ears.

      In this dream, my dad was forced (by some evil people, if I recall correctly) to shoot a group of people. This included my brother, my sister, my aunts and uncles, some of my cousins, and others. Then, he had to shoot himself.

      My mom and I were spared, for some reason, but we were forced to watch as our relatives stood there and my dad pointed the weapon at them.

      I woke up before it got violent, thankfully. But holy hell my subconscious must hate me. Took me a while to fall back asleep after this one. Awful.

    13. getting back into it

      by , 05-02-2019 at 07:16 PM (Awake to take in the view...)
      I keep getting back into lucid dreaming and then falling out of it whenever things get too busy. This is bad. I am really trying to be more consistent from here on out.

      I used to have such good recall. last night was faint, and I recall two nightmares: I had a dream about a creepy guy and his daughter, apparently. Then, I had another dream, this one about a playground for all ages including adults that was haunted/menacing. It was loosely similar to the current horror novel I'm writing. It's cool to have nightmares about your creative work; hopefully that means I'm actually creating something spooky. (:

    14. Three Dream Night: Infiltration, Incineration, and Intoxication

      by , 03-24-2019 at 03:55 AM (What Will Lisez Today?)
      Children's Song Task Force

      I had been recruited for some sort of "task force" to carry out a tactical operation. Excluding the "commander," there were maybe four other people on the force, all with wildly differing appearances and personalities that mostly aligned with what would be expected from a generic "fighting" TV show (e.g. GI Joe). We were in a large concrete "prison-esque" compound full of bookshelves that was our base of operations. Each person was supposed to bring a book with them on the mission that would act as a helpful tool/source of power (it wasn't clear which, since we never ended up using them for anything).

      I decided on taking a small hardcover book with an image of a country landscape on it. Before the task force officially assembled, I became distracted by a small CD player of some kind that had the words "Dance Hall -- One-Step Music" written on it. Intrigued, I decided to give it a listen... and was rewarded with some low-quality children's songs sung by three different Antarctic-themed characters: a penguin, a seal, and a whale. You could choose which one of the three you wanted to sing each song by "switching the track." After a while, I got bored and went to join the rest of the force.

      Upon arriving in the room where everyone was presenting the books they had chosen to the commander, I realized I had forgotten to bring mine with me because of my preoccupation with the CD player. However, I had a trick up my sleeve. I pulled a small orange copy of the Bible out of my front left pocket (I always keep one there IRL with the exact same appearance as the one in the dream) and presented that. The commander seemed confused for a moment, but then he seemed to accept it and moved on to giving us our mission, which is where my recall cuts off.


      An Unsanctioned Journey

      I wanted to go on some sort of trip to another country (Canada, if I remember correctly), and I thought I had gotten permission from my parents to go. I got into a car with two people who were exactly like my parents in every possible way, except that I knew they weren't actually my parents, and we began driving there. We were supposed to reach our destination in "around three hours." It was very dark out and raining slightly, and the roads we drove along were thickly forested despite running through the center of a large town.

      My brother was now in the car somehow, and he asked me if we had actually gotten permission to go on this trip. I told him to call our parents and see, and a minute later, he told me that my mother had frantically picked up the phone, yelled "Fire! Fire!" and then dropped the receiver, through which he had heard some crackling sounds for a little while before something disconnected the line. Permission or not, I decided that we needed to get back to the house as quickly as possible... so I could save some rare sheet music from the early 1900's that I had in my closet from being burned up. I have the same rare music IRL as well; I even remembered exactly which pieces I had already scanned and backed up online and which pieces I hadn't and were thus in danger of being forever lost.

      Unfortunately, the people driving the car refused to turn around, but they agreed to just let us out of the car where we were and have us walk the rest of the way home. I thought this was an insane idea, but then I realized we had barely been driving ten minutes and were only in the next town over from where we had started. I got out (my brother had disappeared again somehow) and began walking along the side of the road. I passed a museum dedicated to the study of Antarctic marine life (sound familiar?) and kept walking, during which my recall cut off at some point or another.


      Japanese Death Arcade

      I was in Japan and trying to enter some sort of arcade tournament. I was chewing copious amounts of blueberry-flavored gum for some reason -- I think it was to "help me concentrate." Getting to the tournament involved descending stairs a number of times -- I arrived in a mall, went down the stairs, came to a subway station, went down the stairs, entered the arcade, went down the stairs -- and by the time I got there, I was deep underground. I looked at the list of tasks to complete in order to win the tournament, and I realized that they almost all involved winning a game after having drunk a large amount of a special kind of beer.

      After discovering this, I declined to participate in the tournament, but I quickly realized that anyone who entered could never leave, since you could only go down each flight of stairs and not up, and that I would be stuck there until I died, leaving no sign that I had ever been trapped there unless I managed to win one of the challenges and leave a warning alongside my name on the leaderboard for future contestants. I also realized that drinking the beer allowed you to die quickly and not have to waste away for days on end, slowly going insane as the dehydration caused you to hallucinate.

      Upon thinking this, I got a vivid image in my "mind's eye" of one such hallucination, which was quite disturbing. It was similar to a scene from David Lynch's "Rabbits," which I had foolishly watched the previous day due to a recommendation from an acquaintance. I do not handle horror well, and I had made it through all of twelve minutes before deciding to quit watching out of fear. I settled on trying to finish one of the few non-beer-related tasks and seeing if I would be able to leave if I did.

      I also found myself rather strongly desiring to have sex; this was unusual considering that I normally don't get such urges in real life. However, there were no women around, and none appeared as a result of my brain subconsciously trying to indulge the desire, so I couldn't do anything about it and just waited for it to pass.

    15. Dream - From Cat To Alien

      by , 03-23-2019 at 12:04 PM
      Date of Dream: WED 27 FEB - 2019



      Dream No. 550 - From Cat To Alien

      Nightmare!


      I don’t remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was at my high school, back in year 12, and apparently I found out that all the year 12s had failed as a year level. What made it worse was that rather than only doing one year, we had to repeat years 10, 11 and 12. There were no arrangements made about re-enrolling yet though. That was it for the first scene.

      The next scene took place in the kitchen area of my old house. My grandma was there and she was telling me that she saw someone I knew from primary school at the local shopping centre. Apparently, the girl had been trying to get in contact with me for many years but wasn’t not aware of the new house phone number. She wanted to ask me about help with choosing what to do for her university studies. My grandma told me that her name was Faila. I spoke with her over the phone but only after a short while, she got very aggressive towards me.

      The cat was then in the house and at first, she was just causing a bit of trouble towards my grandma. When the cat stopped though, we thought nothing of it and my grandma actually showed some affection towards her. Here is where things got weird; the cat started to morph into a different shape. Then all of sudden, her eyes grew awfully big and like something I had never seen before. She pounced on me and I woke up in a sweat.
