    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. Spellbee Spring Competition Night 8

      by , 04-22-2017 at 04:31 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      WILD #1-I was trying to fall asleep when my peripheral vision seem to expand outwards and I felt some light vibrations. A scene of a room formed. I saw a DC with a camera. I realized I was on tv! I said hi to the camera. I could see myself being filmed on a screen. I looked like an elderly person. I woke up.

      WILD #2-I was trying to fall asleep when my body lifted up off of my bed. I got back down and found an open area. I turned my hand back to summon an orca and felt a mouth. I turned around and a full size orca was floating there. I got on its back to ride it and told it to go outside. It was going slow for some reason so I told it to hurry up. It seemed frustrated. I woke up.

      DILD #1-I woke up in bed and noticed that the numbers on my alarm clock didn't look right. I got out of out bed and found an open area. I turn my hand back to summon an orca and felt a mouth. I turned around and there was a large reptile of some sort, about 12 feet long. It was like half turtle and half crocodile. A turtledile! I told it go away it walked away. It went around the corner to go down a hallway. Happy I finally banished something, I jumped through the floor into a void to teleport. I kept falling in the void as I waited for a dream scene to form. I saw I was going to fall into the ocean, right next to an orca. I figured it was the same orca from my last LD, so I stopped myself midair to float above it. I sensed that it was not happy with me because of how I demanded it to hurry up. I asked the orca if it was mad and it aggressively blew air through its blowhole. I figured it was no use running away from it so continued towards it to let it eat me. It opened its mouth and I went through it. I phased through the back of its mouth. I was now underwater as I swam through past some sort of organs which looked like white kelp. As I continued, I was no longer underwater and instead was in a cavern. I heard some sort of Latin dance music playing. I woke up.
    2. Spellbee Spring Competition night #1 and April Advanced ii TOTM

      by , 04-15-2017 at 05:16 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      DILD #1-I felt my body being moved by a force in a dark room. It came to me that I was dreaming. I waited to see where the force would take me. I approached a door with a lighted sign that said "The End". The door opened to a sunny outdoor square in a town, where I was no longer being forced around. I looked for a large object to phase into an saw a large wooden black desk in the square with some papers and a laptop on it. I phased through to the middle of the desk to see if the papers had anything interesting on them, but there wasn't. I finished phasing through the desk. I faced my hand behind me to summon a dolphin and felt a beak. I looked to see if the spinner dolphin floating there was big enough for an advanced summon, but I estimated it wasn't because it was only about 6 feet long. I faced my hand behind me again to summon a T-Rex and I felt a mouth. The T-rex was definitely big enough at about 20 feet tall. I got on the T-Rex's back and chased some DCs who ran away screaming. I woke up in my bed. I noticed that there were several spiders above me. They started to drop towards me and which scared me. I woke up.

      DILD #2-I woke up and noticed a middle aged lady who I could not recognize. I was pretty sure I was dreaming, but got out of bed and attempted to jump into the void to make sure. I jumped into the void. I fell and waited for a new dream scene to be formed. I landed in a dark building of a transit center. I saw that there was a street light outside so I went there so I could see. I put my hand behind me and called for a large fantasy creature. I heard heavy breathing and a sucking sound became surrounded by a large cloth. I could still hear the heavy breathing so I assumed the creature consumed me. I demanded that the creature go in front of me so I can see it. The clothed was removed as the creature did this. I got a good look at the creature. It was like a snow man, only it was made of dirty cotton. It had sticks for arms. I asked it what it was called but it did not answer. I woke up.
    3. Competition night #2

      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.

    4. Was a dolphin in non-lucid dream

      by , 08-14-2015 at 04:51 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      I was in a somewhat typical suburban house, swimming around as a dolphin. At one point I briefly observed my dolphin body. I felt like a dolphin. I don't remember having a beak, though. Swimming around, I notice all of the decorations were dolphin themed. I knew enough that I could pass through walls. I end up in the kitchen where I saw some untoasted peppermint pretzel sticks that looked pretty good. A DC told me I could toast some in the toaster oven. "It wasn't our best gift", she said. I woke up. I never saw the dc but I assume she was a dolphin, too. I probably would have become lucid had I tried to pick up the pretzel sticks as I had fins rather than hands.

      I've been finding it a bit easier to imagine myself as a dolphin. This dream was likely incubated from my imagining. I think I might have turned a corner.

    5. Doggies, kitties, and girls; oh my!

      by , 11-08-2014 at 06:55 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      I lie in my bed recalling my former dog in my previous dream. I think about how dogs and cats have been the monsters of my nightmares for a long time now but this one seemed calm and at peace. I hear something moving in my room and look around. Shit! It's a dog, my sisters Chihuahua mix, Bella. I feel a sense of fear. I know this is not good which makes me even more anxious and fearful. My anxieties have anxieties! The dog runs around the room like the Tasmanian devil. She approaches me and bites off my left hand! I wake up.

      I lie in my bed trying to go back to sleep. Somehow I start thinking about cats. A cat quickly fades into my vision and attacks me. As I wrestle it, I recall that dream characters are like puppet characters, our emotions being their strings. I hug the cat and try to feel love for it. It's getting smaller! It's working! I put it down and start to walk away but the cat quickly transforms back into it's original size and aggression. I hug it and feel love for it again until it was just about gone. I walk away again. With no cat following me this time, I gleefully go to the backyard at nighttime and jump up to fly. I turn my attention to the basic i TOTM, jumping into a pile of leaves. I look down to look for leaves but instead see dogs following me. Dozens of dogs. Big, black, labs and great danes. I hope they don't fly up and attack me. Thankfully they see something else that interests them and run away. I look around again for leaves and spot them. Lots of leaves! Multiple red baskets full of leaves on a lawn. It's so perfect! I land and look and start to approach the leaves. I wake up.

      I'm in a classroom. A former crush of mine, a short blonde girl, is leaning back on me. I'm okay with this, just trying to go with the flow. The teacher calls out, "Girl, you'd better pay him! Without him, you'd fall on the floor!" The teachers attention turns to a student who doesn't have a desk. I stand up, forgetting about the girl, and offer my desk, again trying to be polite. Standing up, I realize I don't have any pants on! I look around, trying to recall where they were...I wake up.
    6. 10/1/2013 dreams

      by , 10-01-2013 at 03:56 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      Non Dream

      I've written out the nighttime routine I created. I'm trying to set it in stone, so to speak.

      1.Fall asleep trying to think about as little as possible.
      2.Upon becoming lucid, make sure the dream is vivid. If it's not, make it vivid by rubbing hands, looking around and focusing on details while saying "stabilize". Try to remember to keep it vivid during the dream.
      3.Upon waking, attempt to DEILD by making the ringing in the ears as loud as possible.
      4.If DEILDing fails, stay still and mentally back track as far back as the dream could be remembered.
      5.Write down the dream in as much detail as I can going forward. Assess whether to get a snack or drink.
      6.Repeat 1-5 until it's time to get up.
      7.Type dreams in online Dream journal.

      I'll keep a dream count going for the entire month to see how well the routine works. It seems to work well for me. I'm going to try to write down all of my dreams this month. My goal for the month 75 dreams, 20 of them lucid.

      Dream #1-I was walking through a suburban neighborhood towards a somewhat elaborate one story home. I walked through the backyard of their house, through a side door, and through a quaint kitchen to find my niece and nephew. I asked my nephew how his trip to Santa Cruz was. He seemed to enjoy it. My attention turned to the television in the living room. On it was what looked like a commercial for a baseball glove. It showed a second baseman making great plays would the glove. He described the glove as being a 12 (out of 10, I suppose). The end of the commercial turned to slapstick comedy as it showed the second baseman and the glove quickly growing proportionately. Then the player threw another player through a distant mountain. I found the stupidity of this amusing. I woke up.

      Lucid #1-I was in my bed when I felt something brushing me. I tried to do a nose plug but I couldn't move my arm. "Obviously, I'm dreaming", I thought. Next thing I know, I'm flying in the night on the broom that was brushing me. I quickly found that I could fly higher if I brushed the broom downwards. I saw a pool complex that looked familiar somehow, but I decided I wanted to fly to the ocean. I flew a bit higher and looked from it. I conveniently found I was just about flying over it. I dove into the moon lit water. Immediately I could see dolphins swimming around as usual. My plan was to ride one and transform into it. Out of the corner of my eye a spotted one that looked like it was going to pass me. I reached out my right hand and grabbed it's dorsal fin as it passed by. I got onto it's back and hugged it to hold on. The feeling of it's silky skin was incredible. I started to lose the dream at this point but could still feel it's skin. I tried to hold on to the dream like I was holding onto the dolphin. All of a sudden, the dolphin started biting me, it didn't like being held. My dream logic told me maybe if I let the dolphin eat me, I'll transform into it. I let the dolphin bite my arm off. The next thing I know, I can't move my arms or legs. Completely spent, I wanted to wake up. The scene changed to me being in a Japanese arcade. I was taunting a couple of kids at a game, explaining to them I wanted to wake up. I woke up.

      Dream #3-On a hilly open field next to an amusement park, there was an explosion which started a fire. Fire trucks rushed to the scene to put out the blaze. As I was watching this near the fence, a camel walked by. Since it was on higher ground than I was, I was a bit concerned it would poop on me. Next thing I remember, I was in the amusement park with a new backpack watching a mine train roller coaster. A boy asked me if I could guard row 8 for him. We then decided we would ride together. I woke up before we got the chance.

      Non Dream

      Dream 1-I was at a high school field I think when an army with bayonets charged and started shooting shots. My job was to defend the general. I had a big pole that I used to deflect attacks by the enemy with their bayonets. It was a nightmare but I wasn't scared because I thought I was helping film a movie!

      This was one of those nights that I just didn't remember much. I had a couple other dreams as well but I couldn't remember them well enough to write anything that makes much sense. Tonight should be better!

    8. Lucid #205-Typical flying lucid

      by , 07-27-2013 at 04:06 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      Dream 1-All I could remember was a female co-worker's voice saying "After my vacation, I only have one boyfriend. My parents won't recognize me anymore as a bilium boy fraternity member. They'll call me a bilium boy blem blum."

      Dream 2-I was riding a couple roller coasters.

      Dream 3-I was at a very crowded beach. The tide went up real high and sent everybody scrambling up the beach. I had to apologize to 3 old ladies who didn't like how I ran into a couple people.

      Lucid #205-When I woke up from dream 3, it was unusually dark outside. I did a nose plug and could breathe. Yay! I went outside and decided to fly. I didn't seem to have much control of my flying so I decided just to explore. I was over a medium density city with lots of Monterey cypress trees, similar to Southwest San Francisco or Daly City. A couple notable things I saw was a large tree house and a lady waving at me with two hands. I woke up after 30 seconds to a minute of flying.

    9. 7/24/13 Dreams

      by , 07-24-2013 at 04:01 PM (dolphin's dreams)

      I want to try to get in the habit of posting my dreams in my dream journal every day. I think to do that I'll summarize the dreams into a sentence or two, that way it doesn't take much of my time.

      Dream 1-The power plant of a city on top on Mt. Diablo was on fire! A co-worker and I were driving up there to save a female co-worker who we thought was trapped up there.

      Dream 2-I had a burger and was being driven down Crow Canyon Rd. Mom accidently went a way she didn't like and my burger fell out the window, much to the amusement of my sister.

      Dream 3-I walked by a pool party in an apartment complex, walked into a house and turned on my nature sounds cd. Then I decided I wanted to listen to Mozart but couldn't find those cds.

      Dream 4-I was giving likes to golf pictures a friend was posting on facebook. Then, I got a sundae.

      Non Dream

      My dream recall was poor/fragmented tonight. I had to wake up early and am more excited to go to Santa Cruz for a couple days! So, I sort of took the night off dreaming.

      Dream 1-I was watching something similar to a cartoon/tv show. I couldn't remember enough of the plot for it to make any sense. There were many characters and it seemed like they were after a bad guy of some sort. At the end, a fat little kid pointed at some dirty lunch tables and asked "Can I sit there in church?"

      Dream 2-A male co-worker was about to give me a ride home from somewhere (a hospital maybe; don't know). We walked into a cake shop where about 20 very elaborate, fancy, 5 tier cakes were being prepared on an open air assembly line. Upon seeing this, my co-worker said "It looks like we can only afford one"
    11. A Taste of Death

      by , 03-19-2013 at 08:29 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      After a routine awakening I tried to go back to sleep. After a few minutes, without warning, a bat flew across my head and screeched. I noticed that I was now completely paralyzed. As my vision faded to black, I thought that I was dying. Instead, I woke up with my head under my sheets.

    12. Almost there!

      by , 09-23-2012 at 04:22 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      I almost had success but ended up not having any last night. Counting my breaths helped me become completely relaxed and still while also keeping my awareness level where it needs to be. My first dream I was instantly aware I was dreaming. The only problem was I was also half awake! I realized this as I was started to stabilize and ended up just waking up. I found it tough to sleep as I couldn't find a comfortable position and I believe I was anticipating the dream too much rather than going to sleep naturally. Regardless of this, I still managed to enter sleep paraysis to enter another dream! I was not lucid however because as my dream started, my tv (which was turned off) was blaring loud with baseball commentary. I immediately rushed to turn the tv volume off and therefore forgot to stabilize which quickly ended the dream.

      So, I make some adjustments-

      Adjusted technique-
      1.During my day, practice all day awareness and work on my visualization when I can.
      2.Wait until I naturally yawn to go to bed. Review my dream goals in my dream journal.
      3.Lie in my bed and clear my mind. Once mind is clear, take 10 deep breaths while mentally counting each one.
      4.Lie on my side, close my eyes, take 10 more deep breaths while counting each one.
      5.Take 290 slow breaths, trying to relax my body and mind more with each one. Count each breath as well. If I lose count, I get up from bed, work to increase my awareness and start over.
      6.Think,"The next thing I see will be a dream" and go to sleep normally. Think, "The next thing I see will be a dream" if my mind starts to wander.
      7.When I enter a dream, look at my hands and say,"stabilize now". Increase clarity if neccesary by saying "increase clarity".
      8.Say, "This is my dream, I'm in control, and anything's possible."
      9.Stabilize every minute or so by rubbing my hands and saying, "stabilize now, anything's possible".
      10.While in my dream try to keep control of my emotions.
      11.When I wake up, lie on my back with my eyes closed and mentally gather all the details of my dream. Slowly get up and write down dream in dream journal.
      12.Repeat steps 3-11 if still tired. If not, go back to step 1 and repeat.

      I also need to work on finding a comfortable and consistant position to sleep in. Working on these adjustments, I'm sure I'll find success tonight!
      non-lucid , side notes
    13. No lucidity but better recall

      by , 09-14-2012 at 04:24 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      Last night as expected I had better recall but I'm sorry to said my adjusted technique failed again. Even when repeating my mantra in between slow breaths, I found it difficult to go to sleep as I was repeating it. In the middle of the night though, I came to the realization that all I'm trying to do is to wake up thinking "I'm dreaming" so that I'm immediately lucid as I enter the dream. I think it might be possible to train myself to think "I'm dreaming" every time I wake up though the power of suggestion. If I can be able to do this I think I will have mastered my lucid induction technique.

      I originaly said that I would only post lucid dreams but I have enjoyed the process enough to write about my non-lucids as well. I also had some visualizations or dreamlets as I was going to sleep.

      -Before my first awakening I had the strange feeling that I was dancing while holding hands with others in a chain. Perhaps it was the very end of a non-lucid dream.
      -While going to sleep I had the visualization of the crowds at a baseball stadium. (The SF Giants pennant race is on my mind)
      -I had a random visualization of taking a picture with a few others at the lookout at Grand View Park in San Francisco.
      -A visualization of me starting a work shift as a waiter.

      Non Lucid 1-
      I was at some sort of store and customers were buying these game boards. (You know, the ones places sometimes give out as a promotion like the Monopoly one given out by McDonalds). There were a couple different types given out. One had only 13 squares, another was a chute and ladders type board. I had a visualization arcade style of a figure going up and down a chute and ladders type level before the end.

      Non Lucid 2-
      A parade like performance by a french artist (I presume) was about to be performed on a city street. I reluctantly agreed to join a random partner of mine as I was afraid I might be late to work. My partner sought out one of the shows stars and got their autograph. He explained to me his idea to get another autograph of the same person impersonating somebody else. I remember hearing something like "merci beaucoup" near the end.
