      Biker bar shenanigans

      I am in a biker bar that is dimly lit
      There were other instances before this that blurred together
      I am looking around at the neon signs and people sitting around the bar
      All of their facial features seem blurred and misshaped
      I immediately know that I am dreaming
      Looking at my hands, yup too many fingers and two thumbs per hand
      I try to remember my dream tasks and decide to summon
      Swinging my hand out and back in I have a gun in my hand
      Nope, did that already, I de-summon it while looking at it, just fading into nothing
      Remembering I’m in a bar I decide a beer would be nice!
      A bottle slowly phases into my gripping hand while I look at it
      The DCs around me are staring(through their deformed eyes)
      I gather I am putting on a magic show of sorts for them lol
      Hold the beer up to drink it exaggeratedly and feel the liquid going into my mouth
      It tastes like nothing, like no carbonation or anything, almost like drinking air that has volume to it, I am let down because I wanted to drink something in a dream
      It seems to be hard to remember the whole list of tasks from the competition
      I remember thinking about telekinesis (this used to be my most reliable dream sign but had the thought the other day I haven't had any TK dreams in quite some time)
      Reaching out with one hand I levitate all the bottles sitting on the bar
      People sitting around stand up and audibly gasp
      Oh boy now I’m causing a scene
      I drop them all at once and hear some glass breaking
      I walk around the bar just taking in the details
      It seems dimly lit and not as clear as I would prefer so I say in my mind loudly “CLEAR”
      The picture snaps into focus and brightens some, good enough
      I then remember thinking how I’ve never made a portal in dream and that would be interesting
      Holding my hand out with two fingers extended like Dr. Strange I start drawing semi-circles in the air
      Greenish sparks start coming out of my fingers and I can see the outline of the portal forming
      I’m unsure where I want to go, the portal seems to be fading in and out
      It is now a large human-sized oval greenish portal like from rick’s portal gun
      I sidestep into it without a clear idea of where I’ll end up
      The dream pauses/does that screen shake thing that happens when you walk through a portal in VR chat
      The dream destabilizes and I lose lucidity as the next dream locale boots up


      I befriend a younger couple, and the girl has eyes for me
      I attempt not to be disrespectful but the guy is constantly leaving us alone
      It feels like a survival situation
      We have a hole with cargo nets in it we can hide in to be safe


      of a war game/outdoor airsoft match
      I throw a grenade through a window a great distance away, and hear the enemies yelp before it goes boom


      I am with my friend who has started a fire in his backyard to keep us warm
      He started the fire inside a dilapidated shed with no roof and missing a wall or two
      I worry the fire could spread
      Some time elapses and I go back to his backyard to check on things
      The fire has completely engulfed the shed as it was mostly all dried aged wood frames
      He doesn't seem to mind much because they were going to have to clear it away anyway
      I am slightly concerned at the size of it and people might notice
      Then we hear the news playing from inside his house
      They are reporting a house fire seen from miles away
      They describe the location as being exactly where we are
      I think, oh boy here we go
      The dream fades while we talk about how to deal with the tall flames

      Cyberpunk Chase & Planet Mu

      I am in a suburban neighborhood at night
      One of my old friends is with me we are exploring different homes along the way
      I gather we are also being pursued by some unnamed force
      Random things keep happening, streetlights are changing shapes in front of me
      I have an umbrella that has a tv antenna coming out of the end, it keeps getting longer like 15'
      Try to show my friend next to me and he doesn't realize what's wrong
      I look back and there is a pizza box-looking object now on the end of the umbrella
      I wonder why nothing I'm looking at stays the same as we're exploring
      We are at his friend's house with his friend sleeping on the couch, we try to be quiet to not wake her up and I wonder if they will be mad we just walked into their home
      We go from building to building just exploring the street
      The scenery turns into a cyberpunk-type city
      Dingy streets with neon storefronts on the street level with high rises surrounding me
      I realize I am trying to get a job maybe
      I am very dirty like a vagabond with a dirty face as well, they are all put of by how I look
      Entering a storefront that almost looks like a bank, I am applying for a loan and they turn me down without a second's hesitation
      My friend is an alien now with an orange leopard face and time cop fatigues
      The employee of the store are all alien cops coming after us
      He shoots them with a red phaser-type alien weapon as we are in a shootout with different colored lasers flying all over the place
      He tosses me an alien gun
      I catch it midair and begin shooting the guys coming for us
      The shape of the gun is compact like a toy with red accents and a short barrel that shoots red pew pew lasers
      Seemingly ineffective with a single shot and gather I need to hit them multiple times for the stun to be effective
      It feels like we are robbing the bank maybe
      I notice other weapons on desks as we make our way through the office space
      Grabbing one with my free hand it is larger, boxy, and gray with blue beams
      So I'm dual-wielding laser weapons shooting our way out
      The room opens up into a quite large atrium with many types of aliens scattered about almost like the MIB headquarters
      We are on the 7th or 8th floor overlooking the open area with everyone down below
      I somehow am able to change shape into an alien being while I hide
      As we're leaning against the guardrail hiding the alien cops are still looking for us
      I overhear one of them say to the other
      "Tell me why the number one wanted delinquent kid in the city spends his entire time in virtual cafes"
      I understand now I am VR-hopping to escape and can choose whatever I experience
      The entire dream before makes sense now as reality keeps shifting right in front of me
      My friend changes into another alien which is ~3' tall chubby gray with smooth features and large cartoonish white eyes with black pupils
      Noticing all the changes I say to them "This has got to be a dream"
      He responds "Well, yeah?"
      I am instantly lucid but also frustrated because this is not what I wanted to experience
      I say "I want the Pearls, I want to be on planet MU"
      And he replies "SURE LETS GOOO!!" while waving his arms up with a magical motion
      As I turn around the entire scene dissolves and in its place a very scenic ocean landscape manifests itself
      All the dozens of aliens that were around us turn into variants of the pearls though none were shaped exactly like them
      I see the bright beach in the distance with house-sized shells and a tropical shoreline
      We are all in the ocean traveling that way as a group
      Realize even more strongly that it's a dream I remember my lucid goals
      First, to summon something, I think of summoning the phaser I had earlier
      So I swing my arm out of vision intending the alien gun to appear feeling the weight of it in my hand
      I swing my arm back and it's there, spinning it like a cowboy I laugh and toss it away
      Also remembering I need to fly as well
      So I pick up two people on either side of me as I slowly levitate out of the water and fly over the crowd of other beings
      We are all still going toward the island now at greater speeds
      I am above everyone moving quickly and remember I need to manipulate some elements as well
      Tossing the people I was carrying forward I lift both arms from waist-high palms up to shoulder height watching the ocean in front of us swell into a massive quarter of a mile-high stationary tsunami
      We are all rising up with the wall of water
      People are caught up in the water but I am flying parallel straight up to the top
      I fly over the crest of the wave which feels incredibly high up
      Doing a sort of backflip turn in the air similar to the way a pole vaulter clears a jump
      Feeling the mist of turbulent water on my face from the top as I cross with the water to my back, I am looking upwards towards the dark starlit sky with a bright sun still illuminating the setting
      I feel the dream destabilize some so I turn my head to get the beach and shoreline back in my field of view
      I am overcome with emotions and a pleasant sensation washes over my body as I freefall head-first down the face of the tsunami toward the island
      There are several alien pearl beings on the shore along with pearls around me in the ocean
      There is no violent crash of the water as the wave levels out with the ocean calmly again
      We are all now just wading water a few feet from the shoreline
      The dream fades as I take in the scenery completely overwhelmed with the realization that I finally had my lucid dream
      It's beautiful and picturesque, just a sunny day in paradise

      Filipino Journey

      I have just arrived in the Philippines with a few friends
      As we get checked in there is a guy who gives us all of our paperwork/visas
      They are printed on transparent acetate cards that are oversized which fit into my loose pants pocket only barely without falling out
      We are in an area similar to a large cafeteria almost, partly looks like an abandoned k-mart with bare walls and busted fluorescent lights
      There seems to be food waste all over the floor with some kind of brownish orange sticky sauce smeared all over the place like someone was mopping with oriental sauce
      The floor is very sticky and I'm trying not to walk on it as I explore where we are
      I'm just kind of amazed that I'm in a new place
      My friends are moving very fast and not really taking things in, they are also boisterous and I worry we may be drawing too much attention to ourselves
      We adventure around the inside here, I notice children scattered playing in the corners, and people generally waiting around like a train station of sorts, though I am surprised at how dingy and worn down everything is
      We go through a doorway to another room and I notice a giant block of butter maybe 3 feet high on the other side, I take up a chunk and eat it
      My friends all laugh, I notice there are businessmen and other random people coming in and out of this concourse
      One guy in a suit coming through the doorway sees me eat it and laughs too but it's all jovial and lighthearted

      When we finally leave the area we are in a very busy marketplace-type bazaar roadway that seems like a back alley connected to other streets
      It is very busy with people coming in both directions, vendors shouting and even the odd motorbike whizzing past, it seems very populated
      I tell my friends we should probably find someplace safe because I know not everywhere around here is safe to be as a tourist
      We are dodging in and out of alleyways eventually meeting a friendly looking american

      He leads us to his permaculture farm which seems very interesting
      I notice there are other americans living there in a commune-type setting
      G is with me now, it seems my friends have gone in a different direction
      As we're walking through this permaculture farm I notice that it's nestled around/built into a wooden framed house, going through the different rooms I realize that we accidentally just walked into their home
      I see the main guy who owns the place in his bedroom
      He is a farmer and also a chef, he is very friendly and incredibly kind, a relaxed soul
      We apologize that we're in the bedroom and he walks us back out giving us a little tour of the permaculture farm along the way and the little community center where everyone is hanging out
      I notice there are a lot of very earthian healthy looking people but they all seem like-minded and hospitable
      It is picturesque and comfortable here

      He's describing a dish they're putting together, it's very similar to falafel
      He asks if we know how to form them with a wood dowel concave mold he is holding and if we would mind helping them prepare a large batch for the community
      We agree, I'm very happy to learn about a new dish in a new place, I am amazed to be in a new country and that there are so many like-minded souls here
      I notice that I’m wearing these very shiny brown leather shoes and the floors are very smooth terracotta tile
      I slide over the tiles very easily as if there is a layer of oil on the floor
      To the point where I don't even have to walk or lift my feet to move around
      It sort of feels like I'm ice skating and I tell them how weird it feels to be able to move around They watch me and chuckle as I kind of slide around the room without really moving my feet much
      We walk outside together and I ask him if there are many permaculture farms around here
      He says no, I respond that I'm really surprised I thought that there will be more permaculture farms like this in the Philippines
      He says there's a couple but it's not very popular with the locals

      As we're walking I notice practically across the street from the farm there are many other similar types of people wearing tan leather-bound medieval armor and some of them are riding horses
      There's some kind of grand activity going on that seems like a medieval game of sorts
      I'm just amazed at everyone’s coordination and the varying outfits
      They're very excited to be involved in the activity, and everyone besides me seems to know what's going on
      I talked to a random girl with black hair as I am walking into the group
      I now have leather armor on my shoulders
      I'm watching the horses ride and do stunts as they're also manipulating different weapons and staffs in a LARP fashion, it reminds me of a renaissance festival
      G is with me now so we walk in the other direction away from the permaculture farm and notice that we're very close to the beach now

      The ocean is to my left
      I am in a video call on my phone with the main chef guy from the farm
      Describing what I'm seeing, the beach is very close to the road so I walk over
      Excited because I've never been in this ocean before, I stand with just half of my feet in the water
      I see the waves gently crashing, the sand is incredibly white, almost pearlescent
      Though the shore is only two or three feet deep along the side of the road which is very close to the water
      The water is turbulent, not really wavy but I can see peaks
      The water is also darker than I expected, it looks different than other seas or oceans I've been in
      I'm very excitedly explaining on the phone what I'm seeing and I'm so happy to be in a new place with G

      As I'm looking around more I see almost what look like high-end villa sort of enclosures
      They all seem like streamlined verandas of organic shapes terraced multiple levels high and built into the hillside all facing the ocean
      There are random pieces of furniture scattered about and little curtains hanging around doorways
      I'm wondering if maybe these are timeshares or if people live here
      I don't see any place for beds or anything so I'm really confused as to the layout
      We're just kind of adventuring around different passageways
      I seem to go inward too deep and through a curtain there's an older woman wearing flowing clothes who is obviously staying here, she comes out to meet us but doesn't say anything
      Apologize turning around we walk back out towards the sea

      I am walking down the road by myself now
      I seem to be wearing some traditional garb that fits loosely, like multiple layers with the outer layer covered in decorations and a vibrant blue color
      As I'm walking I notice a group of people almost like a religious gathering in the street
      They are walking towards me slowly like a meditative walk
      As I get closer I see it's mostly younger children with maybe a half dozen adults in the center
      They are all wearing matching garb of blues and reds, which also match my outfit
      They're playing chimes and flutes while walking in a very specific way almost like a dance
      So I step to the side to let them pass but one of the men in the group sees the way I'm acting and shouts “Continue walking!”
      Saying over and over again “Just walk straight ahead with your hands at your side, just walk straight ahead with your hands down, just walk straight ahead don't stop!”
      I gather I have done something culturally improper and he is correcting me
      So I continue to walk forward just looking straight ahead and walking through them as they pass through around me
      I see now they all have ornate decorations all over their shoulders and down the front
      They all have hats on which almost look oriental, flared up on the sides with a round top with colors that match the rest of their outfits
      The feeling as they pass me is almost mystical as I purposely attempt to not look directly at any of them

      I am in my parents' house now and I understand this is before we left for the Philippines
      Getting ready to go pack up and I’m told someone is at the front door for me
      It's not the person I'm expecting as I glance down the stairwell from the second floor looking out the front door I only see a pair of very tan very long legs
      Coming down the stairs closer I notice it's a woman in a red dress with blonde shoulder-length hair and bright blue eyes
      I recognize her immediately as Tricia Helfer from battlestar
      Stepping out to meet her I remember when winning the trip to the Philippines I randomly messaged her inviting her to come on the trip with us, even though I knew it would be a long shot, there was no way they would respond but here they were on my front door to go on this trip with us, she seemed excited too
      Complimented her on how good she was in battlestar and told her that I loved everything she brought to the character and how impressive it was that was her first acting gig
      Also that I understood why she hasn't wanted to try to revisit the role or just try much more in Hollywood since then because it was so popular, she tells me about how she wrote a film called Invertigo but it never got made
      The dream fades as we’re laughing and just generally chit-chatting on the front porch


      I am in a music store that seems to be having some special release party
      It’s locked to the general public and we’re all vibing inside
      There are maybe a dozen people and I only recognize a couple
      Christina Ricci is sitting in the corner with some friends
      The dream fades with the general murmur of layered small talk and chill music playing

      UFO Pizza Ghosts

      I am outside some building that feels like a sonic
      It is nighttime, I see lights in the sky in the distance
      The more I look the more the lights resemble cartoonish-looking flying saucers flying in pairs
      There are probably close to a dozen scattered across the sky
      I attempt to point them out to the people near me

      Later I am in the building and it feels like a pizza restaurant that is closed for the night
      I gather we are in here to retrieve something for the owner
      My friend wants to snag a free pizza while no one is here
      The streets outside are also empty

      The inside where we are goes almost misty with a pinkish hue
      There are pink colored orbish like odd shaped beings floating through the restaurant
      They are dripping with some pinkish ooze
      They don't seem threatening at all but it feels ominous and somewhat eerie

      Somehow my friend now has a baby in a carrier he says we should take with us
      I don't mind he's carrying and he seems to recognize the kid
      We go outside and my friend is now in a 60s-style convertible waving me in
      He has the baby's cradle fastened in the backseat
      There is another random guy there smoking cigarettes
      I am disgusted and begin voicing my opposition to him smoking so near an infant
      The dream fades

      Fragment about getting a package in the mail, I am surprised it arrived several days before I was expecting it

      Fragment about seeing someone close to me going down the stairs, they fall face first and I race down the steps to see they are unresponsive. I turn them over and pull them level onto the ground while trying to wake them up
      non-lucid , dream fragment

      Gun Game

      Firearm situation with teams of people against each other
      I am with friends it is very tense like an action sequence
      Arming myself with various weapons and matching clips/ammo
      Have long x-ray scope I can snipe with, on some random rifle
      Take out two of the other team on the rooftop of the opposite building
      One enemy is in our building
      He casually walks through the door of our hotel room wearing a silver vest and smiling, he looks like liev schreiber
      I unload both clips of the auto pistols I have that look like pez dispensers
      He seems fairly unaffected and I instantly think he's cheating
      He shoots me a bunch with his auto but they feel like bbs or airsoft pellets while saying he messed me up really bad
      He has also stolen several pairs of my colored glasses and pulls them off his hip and hands them to me, I note they are colours I don't normally don't have like white and several brighter shades of green
      (Note: I hardly play fps games and do not own a firearm)


      I am in a dark large house on the second floor that has banisters wrapping the walls covered in fancy paintings
      A toddler maybe 4 or 5 runs at me shouting a play name for me "Nooooowwwwiiiiieeeee!" and they hug me like they are glad to see me after some long time. I say thanks I really needed that and the dream fades

      White Carpet

      The room becomes a very nice house
      I arrive out front of a very open all-glass wall seated in a rock wall with the front door wide open
      I realize I just woke up on the driveway with my head on my pillow
      There is a man who looks like Anthony Fauci sitting in a small round car that looks like a jetsons car with wheels, he is watching me stand up slowly
      I pretend to be ready to work, so I wave as I carry my pillow inside
      The foyer is all glass and opens to an ultra-wide stairwell leading down into their home
      The wife is in a flurry is getting ready to leave for work
      I tell them the service guy is here because I don't know what work I'm doing
      Now realize I am doing contracting work for a friend
      Long open floor concept spreading three of four rooms across and she wants all the white carpet ripped out
      I say no problem as she leaves for work
      I go outside to call Chris to double-check he's coming with the truck
      I am transported to the work warehouse and I'm hanging onto the back of the truck while talking to two other female employees
      One is obscured by a forklift
      We are back in front of the house
      The woman is finally leaving the driveway
      It is a very ritzy neighborhood and I see other fancy cars driving by
      For some reason, I ask her if the Bidens live up here
      I go back inside and start ripping the carpet up
      It is double layered and I realize it will take twice as long
      It's also double-sided with a black suede flowers pattern on the underside
      I now notice there is a difference of off-whites between the carpet in the kitchen and the carpet in the middle room as I haphazardly start to rip it up with a pair of scissors I found
      Realize I don't have any of my tools or kneepads and it's going to be a long day

      WBTB- Drank some blue lotus stamen tea, awake around 30-40 min
      Dream is nonsensical and a mishmash of the previous locations and people I interacted with. Did not get it written down

      Fragment of trying to journal my dream on my phone with little success
      Continually delete what I typed and tried several times to just get a single word to input correctly
      The dream fades and I wake up realizing I never journaled my dream
