    False Awakening

    1. Spellbees Comp Night 1

      by , 10-15-2016 at 03:59 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      DILD #1-I was sleeping and something felt off I guess because I did a nose plug. I could breathe. I couldn't quite believe it so I did another one and this time became lucid. I opened my eyes and saw I was in a dark, empty room with a closed door. I leaned my side against the wall and slowly phased through it into a hallway. The hallway was lined with several closed doors on each side. It was quiet and peaceful. I tried to make the dream under water but couldn't. I went outside into the backyard where it was nighttime and overcast. I tried to breathe fire but couldn't. I noticed a lion cub sleeping and checked it out. I tried to make it rain but couldn't. Looking for something to do, I jumped up to fly. I made it a bit higher than the second story of the house before I woke up.

      DILD#2-I was talking to somebody and did a nose plug for some reason and could breathe. The dream was wobbly and unstable. I went outside into my grandmothers sunny backyard. I tried to stomp on the ground to create an earthquake but this woke me up.

      DILD #1-I woke up and remembered my intention to do a nose plug. I did one and could breathe. I decided to go down a hall instead of outside. The hall opened up to a big open space with glass ceilings. I quickly found a clock and started rotated my forefinger counterclockwise while saying "time back". As I did this, the hands on the clock went back from 7:00 to 4:00. I noticed the sun stayed in place though. I wanted the sun to go down while I was turning back time as prove I was controlling time and not just the clock. I noticed a couple of ladies doing administrative work who must have been pretty annoyed by some loon nearby spinning his forefinger while commanding "time back time back time back time back time back" Eventually I finally got the sun to lower significantly, turning day into morning. Satisfied, I stopped and woke up.

      DILD #2-I woke up and looked at my alarm clock to find the numbers looked weird. Also, I heard some sort of radio. I did a nose plug and could breathe. I went outside, jumped up in the air and tried to transform into a dolphin, but couldn't. I flew over a creek and woke up.

      DILD #1-I'm staring at my closed eyelids but can see my room. I wonder whether my eyes are really closed or not, so a do a nose plug and can breathe. I look around and see a screen door to go outside. I phase through the wooden door frame. I say hi to Brad (from Luann comic strip), as he walks past me. I walk to the street and put my hand behind my back to summon a bottlenose dolphin. I feel a beak, turn around and it's there. I float beside it to check how big it is and find it's about the same size as me. I wake up.

      DILD #2-I wake up and find that I'm on the floor in my grandma's family room. I'm under a sheet and struggle to get out of it. I try to phase through the floor while sitting down which works. While I'm in the void, I try to imagine being under the ocean. I start moving forward and my grandmothers family room appears again. I go into the backyard. I go into a tight corner to try to summon an orca, but I'm optimistic it will work. I put my hand behind my back but down feel anything. I turn around and watch a bear about 8-9 feet tall fade into view. Its teeth are all bloody. The bear says "You'll help me find the exit, right?" I say "Sure!" I struggle to decide what to do. I wake up.

      DILD#1-I'm in my grandmas family room with a bunch of kids. There's a boy staring at me whom I find annoying so I decide to try to scare him by making myself bigger. I grow myself, the ceiling raising as I'm growing until I'm about 20-30 feet tall. I decide to go outside, so I crash through the walls to go into the backyard. I see the many kids going through the hole outside. I find I've shrunk back to normal size but am in the air. I find the house has repaired itself and decide to fly back into it. I end up on the second floor, where there are many adults. I see a pretty woman and get intimate with her for a few seconds until I wake up.

      DILD#2-I wake up to find myself in a red, fancy living room of a mansion. This is confusing because I hear the laundry that's being done IWL. I do a nose plug and can breathe. I jump through the floor in an effort to teleport but end up in a duplicate room. I inadvertently rise into the air but say "No. I'm lowering." which makes me drop back down. I walk around looking for way to teleport and see a restroom. I go towards it, hoping I could flush myself down a toilet. I open the door and see nothing but a dirty looking sink. Disappointed, I look around some more and wake up.

      DILD#1-As I'm falling asleep I imagine an alligator being captured and flying out the window. A strong wave of energy rushes into my body. I'm able to push some energy out but some comes back in. After fighting the energy for a bit, I notice some kids walking around my room. I try to move but my body is heavy. I try to talk to the kids but it's hard to talk. I give up and just watch the kids. They're saying something but I can't understand what. I wake up.

      DILD#2-At a reunion with some of my former co-worker friends, I discover I forgot to wear pants and underwear. I'm embarrassed by this and try to cover up with my t-shirt. I wake up and see people I don't recognize, a couple of middle aged pacific islander people, one man and one woman. I just want to hug the women, which I do. I wake up.

      DILD#3-In a building, there's some sort of water show going on below. A DC dares me to go down a slide and into the water, which I do. I escape and start flying. I phase through a window and outside. I fly around and explore for a bit before I wake up. I look around and see I'm not in my room. I get up and successfully summon a wooden board. I'm not able to summon the blanket, though. I put the board down, but before my eyes it disappears. My body gets heavy and it gets difficult to do anything. I wake up.

      DILD #1-Upon waking up, I look at my alarm clock to see that two numbers are missing. I do a nose plug and I can breathe! I wake up.
      DILD #2-I wake up to what sounds like a lawn mower, which is unusual. I get up and do a little jump and I can fly! I phase through the sliding glass door into the backyard and land. I wake up.
      WILD #1-I'm trying to fall asleep when I see a dream form in front of my closed eyelids. I'm in a living room of a different house. I try to move but my body is very heavy. I jump into the void under the dreamscape after I fall and land but the same dream scene forms again. I jump into the void again, trying to imagine myself on a slide, but the same thing happens. I wake up.

      DILD#1-I know I caught a FA. The next thing I remember is that I was flying through the air trying to transform into a dolphin. I found a dolphin and was trying to phase into it but nothing was working. I woke up.

      DILD#2-I woke up and walked to the kitchen to get a drink of water. Something seemed off, though so I decided to go into the backyard into the night and jump as a reality check. To my surprise, I flew. Looking for solid objects to phase through, I flew to the roof of a building. I found an interesting checkerboard wall that had squares of see through wood. I made sure it was solid by knocking on it before going through. I then flew into a nearby bay where I saw some dolphins before I woke up.

      DILD#3-I woke up and did a nose plug to find I could breathe. I went outside and starting thinking about how I could control time. I went out the door and rotated my forefinger counter-clockwise to reverse time which worked. I then rotated my finger the other way while leaning backwards. This caused me to speed out the door without any effort. I flew to find a nice open are by a pool. I put my hand behind my back to summon a dolphin, making sure it was big enough. I ended up summoning a sort of dolphin-eel hybrid. It was plenty big, about 10-15 feet in length. I woke up.

      DILD#4-I woke up and tried to breathe through my nose but couldn't. Still, something seemed off so I got up to go to the kitchen to find the layout of the house was different. I see a person who sees me and says "Okay. This guy has been sitting here with a match all day long." I was trying to figure out what he meant by this when I woke up.

      I wake up at night and get out of bed. When I look at the time, I notice my clock isn't there. I do a nose plug and can breathe. I have the feeling I'm dreaming so I go outside and try to jump in the air to fly, which I do. I'm surrounded by high rise apartment buildings. I look for a spot that's well lit so I could see the DC I want to summon. I find a nice spot over an intersection. I put my hand behind my back and call for Destiny, the whale shark from Finding Dory. I feel a toothless mouth, and when I turn around, she's there. She was pretty dead on in terms of appearance, although I didn't take the time to look past her head, which was big. She has some sort of package on her head which I brush off. I ask her what her favorite dream was. She sounds like her as well, although she sounded depressed rather than energetic. She says her favorite dream was when she tore her elbow while protesting. Kind of a weird thing for a whale shark to say. I woke up.

      My dreams have been a bit dark lately but they're getting better.

      In case you're wondering about the DC I summoned, she shows up in the video below from 0:48-1:06. You can see why I thought it would be fun to hear a story from her.

      DILD 1
      I was at an intersection with my sister. It looked like there was a fire over the hills. We see what looks like a huge rocket fly into the sky. We look at it in awe as it flies around, gradually getting closer to us. We find it's actually more like a car as it almost hits us. I start to think "what if I'm dreaming" and realize I'm dreaming. I decide to attack the car by punching it. "Die! Die! Die!" The scene suddenly changes to me looking at the ground. I see some minty fresh gum, and eat it. Very minty! I jump up to fly but can't go too fast because my body is heavy. I look around and it's very overcast. The landscape had sort of an end of the world look to it. I woke up.
      DILD 2
      I wake up to the sound of a television. I don't have a television. I realize I'm in my grandmas house and stumble around, feeling dizzy. I remember my dream goal to summon a book and read the title. I put my hand behind my back but feel a hand instead. I spin around to see who it is and wake up.
      DILD 3
      A young lady and I are racing around a house down some stairs. I realize the house isn't mine and that I'm dreaming. I go outside and put my hand to my side and summon a book. A felt a hefty book and looked at the title. The title was in big letters and was short but I still couldn't read it. I turned the book upside down and could read the title. It read: Old Bot Book. I put it down and tried to summon paigeyemps but couldn't and woke up.

      I woke up in my bed when I found I had trouble moving. I tried to move and ended up flying out of my bed using my stuffed dolphin. I flew outside in the morning light. I noticed my shadow was that of a dolphin but when I looked at my body it was still human. I saw a freight train moving along. I like trains. I put my hand behind my back to summon a dolphin. I felt it's beak and turned around to see a nice full size bottlenose (about 8-10 feet long.) I tried to grab it's dorsal fin to ride it but I couldn't move fast enough and it ended up flying away. I turned my attention to time control. I saw the train let to a small city with some cars on a road. I first tried pausing time and fast-forwarding time which both didn't work. Then, I rotated my forefinger to rewind and fast-forward time. All of the cars went backward then forward respectively with the direction I spun my forefinger. I was trying to think of my next task when I woke up.

      I woke up and noticed that I could see through my closed eyelids. I got up and towards the back door to go outside into the night. The moment I stepped outside I dropped and fell though the ground into a void. My body was being forced around, first gently, then suddenly shifting me in another direction, before taking me hard and fast. I could feel the G forces being pressed on my body as I looked at the dreamscape passing by, going too fast to identify anything. I waited to stop and feel solid ground. I finally did...directly in front of a guy standing on top of his head doing the spits. I walked around and noticed it was now sunny and I was at a fancy hotel pool party. The many DCs were middle aged and elderly, all in formal attire. There was some light dance music in the background. There was a big curvy pool that caught my fancy. I jumped in and began to swim around, enjoying the atmosphere. Then, I remembered I had dream goals. I scrambled to get out of the pool but woke up.
      I was delusional. I had no idea where I was, or what I was doing. I tried to figure out how I got in this confined space at my Grandma's house but couldn't. I was thinking I was having a confusional arousal. This reminded me of dreaming which prompted me to do a nose plug. I could breathe. I got up out of the room though a small door which bumped into a car in the front driveway. I looked for a nice clear area and found one. Finally! No distractions! I got this! I put my hand behind my back and called for paigeyemps. I felt a hand, turned around and it was her. She was perfect. I greeted her enthusiasticly but she didn't look at me. She had a blank stare on her face, looking at something beyond me. I knew this was trouble, she was preoccupied. "I have to go" she says. I tried to stay in front of her but can't go fast enough and she walked away. I desperately cried for her. "No! No, Paigey! Come back! I love you! I love you! I love you!" I woke up.

      Revenge of the DC
      I wake up and notice I could sort of see with my eyes closed. I get up and go to the front entrance. I decide to try my trusty jump into the void RC which has never failed me. I jump but don't go anywhere. I look through the glass front door and see two postal workers approaching. They unlock the door and open it. From behind them, a man in a Dominos Pizza uniform approaches me and takes two dollars out of my shirt pocket while saying "My money." I wake up.
      I'm walking upstairs with my dad when I randomly start thinking "What if I'm dreaming?" I recall the failure of my last RC and try to float in the air this time, which I do. My dad says to see what the cable cars outside. I fly downstairs to look out the front but don't see any cable cars. I could hear them though. I fly back up to my dad try to figure out what's with the cable cars. I wonder if I should call somebody to figure it out. I wake up.
      I'm staring at the back of my eyelids while falling asleep when I notice some random text popping up in the darkness. I watch the dream being created. I get up from bed with the dream still a bit unstable but I hang in there. I put my hand behind my back with the intention of summoning a random female from DV. I feel a hand and turn around to see an attractive young lady that I don't recognize. I ask her for her name and she says it's Naiya. This throws me off because I don't know if it's Naiya because I don't know what she looks like. I know she's attractive though so I decided to make out with her. She's not into it at all, though. She's just standing there like dead weight. I back off and see she's turned real ugly, sort of like an alien. I'm like fine, be that way. I'll just summon another lady from DV. I put my hand behind my back, feel a hand, turn around and see a clone of the other girl. I ask her why they look alike and she looks at her clone as they both shrug as if to say "Well I dunno!" I've had enough of this and go away to try to summon just a random young lady. I feel a hand, turn around and see an old lady who looks like one of my Grandma's friends. She says greets me enthusiastically and comes up to kiss me. I wake up.

      DILD 1-
      I woke up to these two big guys invading the house. I tried to stop them but couldn't. I woke up in my bed. Frustrated I forgot to RC again, I did a nose plug. It sort of felt like I could breathe through but I wasn't sure. I got up and walked to the kitchen where I saw a former male co-worker of mine. I went outside into the night and jumped up to fly. I only got a couple of stories into the air when I saw a couple of kids leaving the house, one with money in his hand. I found that he was walking towards me so I lowered myself to the ground. I approached him and grabbed the money from his hand, which amounted to like, two dollars. "My money! My money! My money!" I thought. Then, it hit me that I had dream goals that I intended "What's my dream goal?! What's my dream goal?!" I thought. I woke up.

      DILD 2-
      I woke up in my bed to find that I could see though the blanket that was over my head better than usual. I got up to walk around. The layout of the house was similar yet seemed a bit different. I tried to do a little jump into the void as an RC. I jumped into the void. I tried to imagine the ocean but the house I was at faded back into view. I remembered to phase through a solid object. I saw the front door and tried to phase though it head on but couldn't. I grabbed the door handle and pulled it towards me until I was able to phase through it. I went outside into the daylight and shifted my attention to summoning a dv member. I tried summoning Ginsan in my eyesight but couldn't. Then I put my hand behind my back and started callin for a random dv member, growing increasingly frustrated that I couldn't summon anybody. I woke up.

      I woke up from a dream and noticed I had a steak knife in my hand. I figured that's what incubated my previous dream about an infomercial for a steak knife sharpener. I remembered my intention to do an RC when I wake up. I did a nose plug and could breathe. I looked around and saw that my room was in a different layout. I got up and jumped into a void. From the blackness, I tried to imagine the ocean in order to create one. Instead, I ended up in another room. I tried again and got the same result. I called for a book and reached out to the side to be handed one. It was a somewhat hefty hardback book which had the title "If you're trying to figure out the science of what you're trying to do, slow down. I noticed I had lost my balance and was spinning all over the place. Undeterred, I tried to read the book but it was all too blurry and confusing. I woke up.

    15. Ld #1000

      by , 12-20-2015 at 07:33 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      I had 4 LDs last night to reach #1000!

      RelaxAndDream asked about this LD so I'll share it in case anybody else is curious about it.

      I woke up from a dream and heard a child in my room screaming some nonsense. The little (Caribbean?) girl came up to me to where I could see a part of her from under my blanket. I tried to get up but could barely move. I asked her to pull the blanket for me so I could see. She pulled the blanket to reveal a male adult dc beside her covered with white make-up it seemed. I asked his name out of curiosity and he said something I couldn't understand. I asked which country he was from as he spoke with a bit of an accent. He said he was from France and Costa Rica. I woke up.

      So, yeah, my 1000th LD was less special that I was hoping it would be. That's okay, though! I had plans to summon and eat a cake and then summon and ride a dolphin in search of a cave to explore, but barely being able to move and being distracted by DCs made a dent in those plans.

      5 more LDs and I'll be up to 365 for the year. It's been about 3 in a quarter years since I joined Dream views. When I joined, my LD count was at 20.

      As far as LD technique, I've gone back to simply setting my dream control intention and then staring at the blackness behind my eyelids until I start dreaming. With this, I had and caught 3 FAs last night. I've had multiple LDs the last few nights after a dry November and start of December so I'm excited about the future. I really want to get better at dream control and stabilization, though. It's kind of frustrating!
