    Lucid Dreams

    1. Air-bending practice

      by , 08-16-2011 at 11:12 PM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      I didn't get much sleep and all I can remember from last night's dream is a small fragment. I was walking through the Back 40's at night and listening to some smooth jazz on my iPod. I had a joint in my hand and I was about to light it but someone called my name so I paused. I saw Devon walking towards me and he was saying something but I wasn't listening. I realized I was dreaming (since Devon was killed in real life) and immediately began practising my air-bending like they do on that show Avatar: The Last Airbender (which is a surprisingly good show btw). I'm getting pretty good at it, I can make small tornadoes and change the temperature of the wind now, but I'm still having a little trouble with flying. I can only get a few feet off the ground, if I try to go higher, I just fall down and usually end up hurting myself. Still, I'm improving so I guess I just need to keep practising.

    2. Rollercoasters, Aggressive DCs, Cupcakes, and Anderj101

      by , 05-11-2011 at 08:58 PM (Nude Pictures of Myself)

      Non-lucid: There was a rollercoaster in my backyard and all of my cousins and friends were over for some sort of party. We hopped in the seats and rode the rollercoaster for a few minutes before I hopped off to grab a sandwich. I hope back in with sandwich in hand ate while on the ride. A loop-de-loop was coming up and someone noticed that something was wrong with the track. As soon as we reached the top of the loop-de-loop, the cart came off the tracks and we fell. I got out of the ride and went for a walk.
      Lucid: I was running from a DC that kept chasing me. I was lucid and I tried to tell him to leave but he ignored me. I tried killing him but no matter how many times I snapped his neck or stabbed him, he got back up. I tried to change the setting and tone of the dream by the Winter Wrap Up song from MLP: FiM (sounds ridiculous, I know, but it usually does the trick in nightmares). It worked for a few seconds (night became day, friendly DC's appeared, etc) but then the other DC came back and throw me to the ground. He kicked and stomped on me a couple times and then tried strangling me. I tried fighting back but I couldn't so I just laid there pathetically flailing my arms while he beat me. It was pretty painful, especially when he started stomping on my stomach but there wasn't anything I could do about. It last a while too, most of the time I wake up quickly if I'm in pain but this beating seemed to last forever. I eventually woke up when the phone rang. I felt a little sore for a few minutes upon awakening.
      Non-lucid: My cousin and I had just shared a blunt and we decided to go to this bakery that was close by. Once inside, he went off to buy some food and I ran into Erin (a friend of mine). She was telling me something about her little sister but stopped once she spotted her ex. She wanted to leave so we stepped out, my cousin came out soon after and he had a tray full of cookies, cupcakes, muffins, etc. I grabbed a cupcake that kept changing colors and offered Erin another but she wasn't hungry. Not sure what happened next but I remember we ended up in an airport soon after. I can't remember the rest of the dream.
      Semi-lucid: I was on DV and I posted a link to a song I like (Demons Surround Me) but anderj101 said he didn't like it at all. He then called me a faggot and logged out. I tried to reply but someone had locked the thread already. It didn't seem like something anderj101 would post so I did an RC by counting my fingers and realized I was dreaming. I was about to go explore the dreamscape but I got distracted by a new private message. I woke up before I could read it.

    3. A DC Named Courtney

      by , 04-21-2011 at 10:54 AM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      Very clear, detailed dream - hence the long journal entry.

      This dream began with me talking to a friend on the the phone. She mentioned something that caught me by surprise because I didn't remember telling her anything about it. I did an RC by checking my hands and noticed one didn't have as many lines on the palm as it should. I became lucid and took the time to anchor myself to the dream by chewing some gum (Trident Spearmint <3).

      I decided to try and find Catie (a DC that represents my subconscious/dream guide/whatever you wish to call it). I didn't want to walk all the way over to the front door so I opened a window and decided to jump out of it instead. The moment the window was opened, a crow flew in my room and told me I should look for Courtney (an irl friend) instead. I wasn't sure why it wanted me to search for Courtney but I thought I may as well since it was the first time a crow had spoken to me without being asked a question first.

      For some reason I went downstairs and went out the backdoor of the basement suite instead of the window. Once I opened the door, the fox (I really should name it soon) appeared and followed me out. It didn't do anything to attract my attention so I just ignored, I've grown used to it showing up randomly and following me around. I'm even starting to like it's company, except when it makes me lose focus by yipping, yelping, barking, or whatever you call that sound. Anyways, instead of being in my backyard, we were in the street of some residential area that seemed strangely familiar.

      We went down a couple houses and stopped at one that I somehow identified as Courtney's (although it didn't look like her's). I knocked on the door and, through the window, saw someone making their way over to answer. A girl opened the door (or woman I should say, she seemed to be slightly older than me) but it wasn't the Courtney that I'm friends with, just some DC. An adorably cute one, mind you, but a random DC nonetheless. Her face did seem familiar however but I'm not sure why. I've probably seen her in another dream or maybe seen someone who looks similar at the mall or something.

      I was happy to see her and I soon got the impression that she was supposed to be my girlfriend in this dream. She was even happier to see me and greeted me with a hug that literally seemed to last hours. I noticed the faint scent of black jellybeans (which are awesome) so I guess she was wearing perfume or something. Do they even sell perfume/cologne that makes you smell like jellybeans btw? I should Google that. I managed to do a couple reality checks and a few stabilization techniques before she finally let go. It was at this point that I realized the fox had left to do something. She then kissed me, which also seemed to last for hours. I didn't need to do anything to stabilize the dream during those ''hours'' though, she had (spearmint flavored <3) gum or something in her mouth so the taste was enough to keep the dream from falling apart. We eventually made our way to her bed and did the grown-folk. =P While we were lying in bed, she started telling me something that she felt was important but I couldn't pay attention because the dream was destabilizing. I "woke up" soon after.

      I was back in bed and checked the clock to see how late I had slept in. When I saw it had odd symbols on it, I realized it was only a false awakening. I did several reality checks to make sure I was dreaming, then I went back out the basement suite's backdoor (the fox didn't show up this time), and headed towards Courtney's place again. This time she was wearing a blue slip dress. Normally I don't remember what DC were wearing in my dreams but this time I did so I guess my recall's improving. Hurray for progress. We sat down on her couch and started talking about something but I can't remember what was said. The dialogue seemed to have been significant to the dream but I've never been very good at remembering conversations, I'll have to focus on improving that. The dream fell apart soon after.

      I woke up and checked the clock, this time I really was awake. Turns out I had only been asleep for just under two hours but the dream felt like it lasted much longer than that.

      I don't know if this dream means anything but if it does, maybe I still have feelings for Courtney (my friend, not the DC). We never really had a full-on relationship but we had something going on between us; for a short while at least.
      I need to remember to ask that fox a couple questions next time I see it, like why it's been following me around lately. I've got to come up with a name for it too since simply addressing it by ''the fox'' sounds weird. Also, I just had the strangest feeling of déjà vu déjà rêve (since it feels like I've dreamt of this before) while typing this out. ._.

    4. Web-slinging and Being a Horrible Brother

      by , 04-20-2011 at 09:34 PM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      I woke up today some time around 5:00 AM, got a glass of water, and went back to bed. The dream began with me walking down a street near my house. As I was walking, I saw some kid having trouble with his bike so I decided to give him a hand. While doing so, I noticed him wearing a digital watch that read 99:99. It struck me as odd so I did a reality check by counting the fingers on my hands, I had all 10 but one was shorter than it should have been so I knew I was dreaming. Once I became lucid, I began to swing around the city like Spiderman for a while. Didn't do much else but it was fun nonetheless. I kept letting go, intentionally free-falling, and then swinging away at the last second before hitting the ground. Way better than any rollercoaster I've ever been on. I eventually woke up and then went back to sleep.

      I'm not sure what happened prior to this but I remember being in a big argument with my sister. I tried to keep my cool but I eventually lost it and started yelling. She kept laughing while I yelled, annoying me even more. I'm not sure what I said but she eventually gave me an odd look and I could tell she was about to cry. I shut up for a few seconds and tried to apologize but I woke up before I could. I wasn't lucid during this dream.

    5. Stalked By A Fox

      by , 04-20-2011 at 04:41 AM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      *Originally posted here*

      Lately I've been seeing a fox (or maybe multiple foxes, they all look the same to me ) a lot in my dreams. It's a bit of a long read so bear with me.

      When I become lucid, while doing whatever it is I do in my LDs, I tend to keep an eye out for crows. I can always ask them a question and they'll answer it, or at least lead me to someone who can.

      A few weeks ago (the beginning of March maybe?), I saw one and asked it to show me where Catie (my subconscious/dream-guide/whatever you wish to call it) was since I hadn't seen her in months. It led me to a sparsely wooded area and I thought I saw her walking down a trail. I called her name and followed her for a little while until I saw something orange streak passed. I remembered seeing something similar happen in a few earlier dreams but I had always ignored it. This time, I focused my attention on finding it and after I few seconds I noticed a fox sitting atop a rock.

      At first glance it looked more like a wolf with fox-like characteristics (like fur pattern) but after a bit of focusing, it started to look like a normal fox. I realized I was wasting time with the fox so I went back to where I last Catie, hoping she'd still be there. She wasn't so I sat down and tried to call another crow to help me find her. While doing so, I herd a noise behind a few trees and got a mental image (I didn't actually see it with my eyes, just had the thought pop into my mind) of a bear walking in direction. I woke up after that.

      That was the first time I really noticed the fox. Ever since then, it's been showing up in many of my non-lucid dreams and every lucid one. Usually I'll see it in the corner of my eye hanging around where ever I am, sometimes when I'm watching tv, sometimes in a picture, and once in a while it'll just walk up to me and try to get my attention.

      A few nights ago I had a lucid dream where I noticed the fox and tried to run away from it. It isn't threatening in the slightest, it's actually pretty friendly, I just wanted to see what would happen. It tried to follow me but I noticed it was limping so I went back to check on it. I scooped it up and began carrying it before waking up. I'm not sure where I intended to go, I just picked it up and started walking. It seemed to be happy about that and it started fidgeting. The more it moved, the hotter it got until I eventually woke up with this burning sensation all across my arms and chest.

      Those are the only two times I can recall where the fox played a significant role in the dream, every other time it's just been a random dream character that's just there. Had been keeping my dream journal up to date, I could have gone into more detail about each instance but, unfortunately, I haven't jotted anything down in it for a while.

      I'm not particularly interested in foxes nor have I ever seen one in real life. I haven't even come across anything as of late that would get my mind to focus on foxes either. These dreams just feel... significant or important for some reason and it can't be shear coincidence that I keep seeing this fox, can it? Is this my subconscious trying to tell me something? Any help is appreciated it. If you take the time to read this post - or at least skim it - and try interpret it, I'll give you the most amazing thing you could ever imagine. It'll even come gift-wrapped with a shiny ribbon.
    6. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic =D

      by , 03-18-2011 at 04:59 AM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      I went to bed last night after watching an episode of MLP: FiM (don't judge me, it's a good show [ask Marvo *here* and he'll show you the error of your pony-less ways]) and drinking a glass of apple juice (which can cause vivid, albeit weird, dreams) so that probably had a hand in last night's dream.

      I was taking a walk in the park like I usually do when I saw a horse walk by. It was white, had a blue mane with cyan streaks, and was wearing sunglasses like the one in Blackberryfox's avatar. I did a couple reality checks but they failed, I got annoyed at that because I knew it couldn't possibly have been a real horse. I must have said it out loud because the thing called me a "neighsayer" and left with a snort. I instantly became lucid and began stabilizing/anchoring myself to the dream by eating an apple I found on the ground. Everything became so damn vivid and life-like at that point that I started to think it was real.

      I reassured myself that it was just a dream and headed home so I could get to my computer - which is what I usually use when I want to be transported to some far off place (woo for Google Maps). When I got there, Firefox was already running and open to a Youtube video - episode 20 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (fuck yeah!) I clicked play and eventually lost lucidity. By this point the dreamscape had changed from my bedroom to Equestria and everything became all cartoon-ish. I was in Applejack's orchard and saw her and Twilight talking. Applejack noticed me, got all excited, and called me over but when I finally got close enough to greet her, Rainbow Dash came in flying and crashed into me. The dream started destabilizing and I heard Applejack say something like "remember to email (or maybe it was just mail?) me when you get home." Then I woke up and my chest felt sore for a minute or two.

      Confound these ponies, they drive me out of lucidity. D:

    7. Possible SD

      by , 01-19-2011 at 02:01 AM (Nude Pictures of Myself)
      More notes for myself:

      - Attempted a WILD by visualizing a landscape (a forest) then I visualized myself looking down at my feet as I walked and recreated the sound of footsteps.
      - A minutes or so into it I was dreaming but I had no control of the dream or even a body, it was like watching a movie.
      - I had to follow two girls, I couldn't turn away when I tried.
      - I could read the mind of one (who turned out to be my dream guide, Catie) but not the other (her name was never mentioned so I'll call her DC2).
      - Catie seemed to know this was a dream, which struck me as odd since most other DCs never seem to. DC2 didn't.
      - Catie was like the "main character" of the dream, DC2 was just there to tag along.
      - Catie did several reality checks and then start looking for someone.
      - DC2 pointed at something and Catie turned to look.
      - It was me, or at least a projection of me. Since I had no body and was simply observing the dream, I had no conscious connection with this "other me."
      - They tried to get the attention of the "other me" but it didn't see them. It looked like it was looking for something.
      - I tried to project myself into the "other me" but it didn't work.
      - The "other me" teleported away (several teleportations a few feet apart, the way I usually travel in dreams).
      - DC2 swore and said something about "him fading away again."
      - I woke up.

      Don't exactly beleive in "shared dreaming" but given the experience, this might be as close to one as I've gotten. Maybe. Idk. Probably not.
