      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 Iím 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 Iím 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 ďCLEARĒ
      The picture snaps into focus and brightens some, good enough
      I then remember thinking how Iíve 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
      Iím 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 rickís portal gun
      I sidestep into it without a clear idea of where Iíll 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


      Fragment

      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

      Fragment

      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

      Fragment

      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
      My friend responds "I TRIED TO MAKE IT SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE, WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!?"
      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
    3. A Month in Review

      3/2/20

      I am in my godmother's house with her many kids
      I am baking
      She gets frustrated by my spilling flour
      I tell her I will clean up
      When I'm done I wipe it all up
      The bread is a small breadstick someone asks me about
      They compliment me
      I notice the house is dirty
      I spend maybe 30 minutes cleaning up their living room of debris and paper left from the kids playing
      My godfather is very surprised and pleased at the end result
      He mentions having a special time on certain days where we can clean like that, as the whole house is disorderly
      I am fine with it because it's superficial cleaning and wouldn't take any time at all

      Transitions to walking down a street with old highschool friends/church friends
      There are several youth group bands set up all singing the same music along the street.
      I have a rolling table stand I am leaning on and roll it over to watch the groups play in unison
      Suddenly a band behind everyone starts playing their own music
      It's not bad it's just not what other people are playing
      The other bands stop and seem confused so they turn around and watch the new band play
      I stand with friends and lean on my pummel horse type stand table while watching

      I am walking down the street with friends again
      My buddy Nate decides to hit on some girls we are walking by
      He tells them he wants to show them something
      We all get on a shuttle/bus that has a sound system
      We all have headphones we plug into their sound ports
      He is playing some song for them he wants the girls to listen to
      I am confused because the music isn't that great
      He then tells one of the girls that she looks just like the lead singer of this band and he thought she would think it was cool
      People are somewhat impartial
      We all now take turns playing music for each other to listen to
      I tell the group it would be cool if we randomly played a song and had the group guess who was the one who selected it as a game
      People like that idea
      We only get a couple of songs in
      One is apparent because it's a sappy hills CW type song that is definitely this helpless romantic girl sitting in the front who used to have a crush on me

      I now notice that I have two small fuzzy very very newborn baby birds sitting on my head
      They seem incredibly premature and I'm not sure they will make it
      I carefully remove them from my head and place them down on a counter
      They are both still alive but I gather they will need some serious care
      I am in a run-down market like a dollar store with no attendant so I start rummaging around looking for materials to build a nest/make food/administer it to them
      I've only seen a few videos of people taking care of birds this young and small
      I get some soft towels and find some creamy soup I wonder how I will keep them warm and look for a hot water bottle
      The attendant comes out and looks confused
      I tell them the situation and show them the birds, they are relieved and sympathetic to my cause


      3/05/20

      Driving w mom in a smart car
      She drives off the road, on a log, and almost over a cliff
      I carry the car backward and turn it around by hand

      I am driving through a winter storm with an older woman in the car
      It is a 50's classic now
      The controls are two levers
      It is tricky but manageable
      Highway speeds but tons of snow and ice on the road

      I am kidnapped by a larger bald man with glasses
      He takes us (myself and three siblings) to some old house in the middle of nowhere
      He has an incestuous family
      His kids don't wear clothes and they are all dirty
      I escape with my sister
      We make it a town over before he finds us
      He takes me in a car to a meeting
      The meeting is in an old dim looking pool hall/bar
      They are having a sacrificial service
      They are burning a toddler
      I don't want to be there
      It is a celebration for them they are all dressed up and communing like it is a holiday for them
      I am disgusted and try to leave several times
      Each time he walks me back in and forces me to watch
      It is smokey in the room
      I escape and make it to my car while everyone is leaving
      I call the police to report what is going on
      It occurs to me there were many firefighters and police there and They may be everywhere
      The guy on the other end of the phone seems unphased
      I hang up and key into my car and start to drive away


      3/06/20

      Being given a tour of the space shuttle that is a mix of Saturn v
      There are a few of us standing on the core up high
      There is a screen that simulates the heights and I stand to the side because it is almost disorienting
      Just then the top opens up and we are lowered down the sides almost like a ride
      We each have a chest strap holder like a roller coaster and we line the inside of the craft facing each other
      I wonder if Starship could hold people like this

      I am in a classroom with people I went to high school with
      The math teacher seems hip
      He has long dark hair with some grey streaks
      He also wears black-rimmed glasses
      He has a unique sense of humor and the students like him
      There is a note taped to the front board talking about how his wife left him
      It seems like it's meant to be a morose joke
      A kid I went to high school with is singing/beatboxing a song and everyone is listening to him
      I have the sudden realization that I am too old to be here
      It frustrates me
      I say out loud realizing it is a dream
      'why am I even here? I am too old to be in school!"
      Everyone stops and the teacher looks at me
      The teacher begins talking to me directly
      I don't recall everything he says but he tells me something along the lines of "because you want to learn" it is true, I have been asking to be taught by my dreams
      I just didn't expect it to be so literal
      He explains a few things to me and his voice becomes jibberish
      I begin to wake up
      I remain still and focus on the dream and talking to him
      The dream reappears around me exactly as before with fewer students in there with me
      This happens a few times and I am able to reform the dream and reappear in the same classroom always with the teacher
      The last time I reappear the colours are off in the room
      I ask him why things look different now
      It is almost night time and there are no lights
      I manifest small flames in my right hand and intend them to go along the wall in the back of the classroom, with each one the room gets brighter
      Once they line the back wall they begin to dim and flicker
      I intend them all to be brighter at once and they do
      The room is brightly lit now
      Our studies continue

      I am in the back of a department store mixed with a chemical facility it seems
      There is an invisible person wrestling with me
      I ask them to help me carry cans of a beverage out and they oblige
      I see a girl I used to know hooking up with one of the guys in the bathroom
      They are shocked I walked in but I don't care I just have to urinate really badly
      I set up to pee and go for what seems like minutes
      The guy looks over at me amazed that I am going for so long
      The relief feels amazing
      My penis hangs down past the knee of my shorts when I am done, I don't care

      I am in a gas station/head shop
      I purchase a large water pipe and a smaller rig for oil that looks like the nectar collector but more convoluted
      For some reason, I throw a small weight through a Pepsi machine and it puts a hole in the front of it
      Whenever someone uses water on the beverage station, pop spews out the hole
      I find the water cut off and switch it off to fix the problem
      I find the water hookup to the machine that was broken and unplug it
      I am now able to turn the water back on and other dispensers work


      3/07/20

      There's a taco truck part of a cultural festival thing
      The tacos are super cheap and we buy a few to eat
      Like a dollar apiece
      I have a backpack full of money

      In a friend's house, it is super big with many gadgets and an expensive computer and a voice-activated shower
      I am the rich kid doing some promotional tv spot
      I am walking on top of a telephone booth and something else that is mostly glass
      It breaks with my step and I crash through it falling to the ground
      Broken glass is everywhere
      I am bloody and covered in thousands of small glass shards
      My stomach is cut up too
      I can walk fine but everything stings
      I go to the large house and tell the shower to turn on
      It is a large walk-in room attached to the bedroom
      The water is at the perfect temperature
      I try to clean myself but some glass still remains
      I am picking glass out of my skin the entire dream
      I notice several cars driving down the long driveway from the bedroom which is on the second story
      My friend's siblings have all arrived
      They are all older
      My friend offers me some shrooms to take for our trip
      I eat one to microdose but never end up feeling anything
      They are large like baby bellas not small like normal shrooms
      He turns everything off in his room but tells me to leave his windows open
      The screens are still in place
      We go downstairs and meet his siblings who are all of various ages much older than us
      One of his brothers has a hang drum he is playing on the stage in their front yard
      I want to play it but never make it onto the stage


      3/12/20

      Driving see a circle of sunlight on the moon that fades in a minute or two
      Parked at a campground that is also the parking lot of the spa
      Kevin is giving me a tour of the new facilities
      Everything is updated and newer futuristic looking
      I am crying because I am back
      I pack up and go to leave the parking lot
      Drive down the street before I realize I forgot things on the ground by my campsite
      A necklace and a few more things
      Drive back and there is another car parked in the lot
      I pick up my things slowly and a guy walks up to me and asks me if 73-year-olds can float
      We talk about the tanks while I walk up to the spa with him
      I tell him I was just leaving but I'm happy to talk to him
      He is impressed with my knowledge and glad to talk to me
      I tell him to tell the people in the spa about me
      Mark is standing in the other room talking to other employees

      Fast forward
      I am in a camper/RV
      I am looking at my body and it looks like someone else's body
      My ribs pulsate and roll like a fish out of water
      My elbow has an exposed joint like a puppet
      I am made of a flesh coloured plastic material
      My arm is many mechanisms
      Someone is shocked I don't look human
      I may be an alien
      I say oh, those? Those are just my tubes


      3/14/20

      Some kind of political action event in a long hallway
      People are lined up to hear different other people talk at certain intervals
      There is a woman in a chair trying to talk to people but no one is listening because she isn't official
      There is a man reciting the Hare Krishna
      Everyone joins in and sings
      There is a dance troupe of guys doing a pre-rehearsed dance routine
      I join in for the fun of it but I don't know the dance
      He tells me for the next segment I need a pair of boots
      I don't have any
      They have a special shoe with a brick on one foot
      It is like a stomp routine
      Later he asks me why I didn't dance as tight as them
      I told him I'm not a dancer but I like to dance
      I have no formal training
      He is sitting at a computer
      Upstairs there is a girl who has an amateur bakery in her room
      Her oven is a wood stove made of plywood
      There are tons of fresh baked bread rolls and sourdough in forms
      Everyone seems to be really impressed with her
      She is surrounded by older men trying to court her
      I wait until fewer people are there and begin talking to her questioning about the oven and how it's constructed
      I tell her I wish my parents let me have an oven in my room when I was younger
      It is all a sort of historical reproduction now
      There are hundreds of smaller birds that I thought were moths at first
      They are tiny like the size of cicadas
      They obviously are there for the crumbs
      I ask her who eats the birds
      And a cat appears and catches one on the floor
      She says see, a perfect ecosystem
      We have a conversation about historical reproduction and how someone a hundred years ago would never imagine that we would be baking bread the same way but then jump in our car and go a hundred miles an hour down the highway
      She turns down many gentlemen callers
      Our conversation is pleasant


      3/15/20

      Elon tells me to collect foliage
      They capture a dinosaur and take it across the street
      I have a special calculator that is an mp3 player for Victor
      Nikki falls weird while trying to snowboard down a mountain with fresh powder
      We rescue her and she is embarrassed

      I'm in a large airport terminal/arcade like a futuristic dave and busters
      I am taking a trip overseas with Guy with Ginny too
      I realize last minute I don't have a clothes bag packed and go back to pack clothes
      I'm walking through the terminal and can't find my clothes anywhere
      There is a leak from the ceiling and a couple of small pools of water on the floor
      A worker middle-aged woman tells me not to step there and I don't listen and slip slightly but maintain my step
      She gets mad at me and tells me she is going to get me in trouble
      I ask her if she is a middle school teacher because she's bad at ordering people around
      A cop/guard comes over to me later and is annoyed the woman bothered him for such a stupid reason, he mocks her in front of me


      3/16/20

      Sitting at a four-top table with three other middle-aged women
      They are silently bidding on fancy plates to eat pizza with a fork and knife on
      The woman I am paired up with tells me she only puts one slice on a plate at a time
      We all put our heads down to bid
      I don't understand the process and they are all seasoned in it
      I look at my phone and swipe away a few messages
      The lady across from me chastised me for not paying attention and looking at my phone
      I look up and begin to yell at her and tell them that they are all petty as fuck and this whole process is stupid as hell and I walk away out of the store

      Down the street, I see Nikki by a large tree next to a river
      We hang out and it is a pleasant rekindling
      I am suddenly large and cut like Karl urban we begin to hook up but I am also watching it happen
      As the intercourse progresses there is a power-play between who is in control
      Her face gets blood red and pulsed like she is lifting weights and she grows a beard as she becomes more forceful
      The me I am watching asks her why can't I just love you like I used to, and she shrugs

      I am in a Halloween store with my mother and there are workers in costume just casually walking around
      I go to the makeup section to browse
      There is an upstairs loft that isn't too populated but has a guy sitting at a desk
      He is selling laser-cut temporary tattoos that literally burn complicated designs into your skin but shed within a day or two
      He shows me some demos and I am impressed
      It looks like it hurts but he assures me it's quick and painless, he also shows me pictures of how quickly it fades, I think it's a great idea
      There is a small snack shop connected to the costume store that has three mini sliders for sale
      They have 3 of them put together to show the workers on a shelf up high with a mirror directed to show the reflection
      They seem tasty but I don't try any
      There is a drive-thru

      I am suddenly in a Mexican restaurant of sorts back in the kitchen
      I gather I am a server but hanging out with the cooks
      I see one of the cooks eating his lunch real quick
      There is a paper towel dispenser which is full of long flat tortillas rolled up
      His burrito is half hanging from the ripping part as he eats the remainder
      I take both hands and pull out the last bit and ask him if I can have it while it's already in my hands
      He shrugs and I realize I should have asked before grabbing the food with both hands
      I apologize and begin to eat it.
      It's dry but flavorful

      I am a cowboy in the western 19th century
      I am with a troupe who take over some ritzy plantation with force
      We threaten with guns but aren't overly violent
      The slaves are all worried at first but I assure them they are all free now and don't have to worry about anything
      They are all african american women in their 20s and 30s and they are surprised and happy to be freed by us
      The plantation owners aren't very pleased but go along with it
      We all sit down to have a meal and serve ourselves family-style dishes
      I have huge portions on my plate of coleslaw green beans and potato salad
      It all tastes really good and I talk to the people around the table about how southern food tastes so much better when you're in the south
      There is someone in my troupe who is severely prejudice against army soldiers and there is a soldier who is in the room too
      He tries to fight him and wants to kill him outside
      More army shows up and there is a large explosion

      There were several episodes to my memory recall. But it picks up. And I am in a homie warm large cottage, that seems like it's at a summer camp or something. Surrounded by people that are there at the camp and they are familiar to me like festival.

      There seems to be a kind of war. For the battle between the two sides, one is a red side one is a blue side people are dressed like pirates, but also like festival ware.

      I talk to a guy who has multiple large sticks/logs, and one of them looks like a didgeridoo. I ask him if it's a didge and he says, I don't think so but it might be and I ask him if there's a hole in the center. I take it from him and begin to look and notice that the log is larger than I thought it was at an off angle and there is a hollow hole through the center of the trunk, but there are many cobwebs and debris inside of it and I don't feel like putting my mouth on the end to see if it reverberates like a didgeridoo.

      At a certain point, there was a female companion with me who felt very warm. We were connected in a way that we knew each other prior to this experience. We spent time alone away from the group, we were inside of almost like a hanging woven wooden egg-shaped chair we sat in together and there was a spell put on the chair so that no one else could see that we were in it even while standing next to us. There was this overarching theme of magic. Like maybe we were magical creatures or we were hanging around magical creatures.

      There are some memory gaps and it transitions to me exploring the outside area and there are multiple buildings all connected with a flat black asphalt pathway, that is almost as wide as a road and is very smooth and glossy. To move quickly. I put rocks under my feet and I'm able to slide down the hill very easily almost like I'm ice skating.

      I see someone else pass me on the other side of the walkway only they are riding a flat disc-like sled. They look at me laughingly and are curious at what's on my feet as they pass me by going the opposite direction. I go to the far edges of the area and there's an older building that doesn't really seem to be used anymore, but there is a small family out front and I gather that he is making fake bigfoot plasters imprints And they are worried that I will catch them in what they are doing, but I pretend not to notice and ask them questions about the building. They say they will open the doors for me but no one is in there, so I don't really care. I end up walking through one of the glass panes into the building and it's like a science museum child's education center. With cartoonish graphics on the walls amongst other things but it is barren and no one is in there. I walk out and tell them what's the point of having a lock on the door if their windows are open, I continue walking around the campus.

      I am suddenly in a theater/arcade area where everything has neon lights. They are low lit like pink neons and green neons and everything feels retro almost like from the 80s. I don't recognize anybody anymore and there are many older games that are being projected on a movie screen in a theater that people are playing. I ask a guy sitting upon a stool playing an old box arcade game what year it is and he says, it's 1980 I say, oh shit I must have time-traveled again. Now realizing that I am stuck in another time. I can't figure out how to get back, so I just wander around and explore the area trying to get to where I came from. Every new opening seems to lead to a new area. None of which looks like the place I was in before.

      There's a big open midway. That seems like the opening of a movie theater with many different doorways going in different directions, it almost feels like a science museum. But more like a theater and everything is still retro colored and the people even are dressed in the style that was popular in the eighties.

      I am in India
      There is a strong current river next to the town I am in there is a long tube wave down the length of it
      I befriend a young girl who identifies as a boy but she looks more androgenous
      We venture around the markets of the town and they seem quaint and simple, yet familiar
      I have one day left in India before I have to travel back and I am trying to figure out where to go to spend it
      I have a conversation about which part of India is more Muslim and which is more Indian traditional
      We are taken to an Indian temple that hosts pagan rituals
      There are several guys in the group who seem like posers to me
      They want to be baptized in pigs blood
      They are lowered into aquariums full of blood and act super affected by the ritual
      While this is happening the temple is lit with a green glow, it is night time
      I begin coughing hard and a long bloody hairy mess comes out of my throat
      I cough up this bundle of blood and hair and feel incredibly relieved when it is all out, it takes a minute or two to drag it out
      I am annoyed at the white guys who paid to have the faux ceremony and gather it is a service the locals provide to tourists who don't know any better

      We are at a convenience store and the guys are being rude and rambunctious
      I have painstakingly baked a cheesecake from scratch and one of the guys found it and ate it all
      I am pissed off because I have to shave
      I grab his mouth and press the remaining cake out of his mouth and smear it on my face to shave with
      I wipe it off with napkins
      We find a snack dispenser that has reusable plastic bags under it of different sizes to our snacks in, I am trying to do the bat conversion to figure out if I have enough money left over to buy some

      There is a large overweight man who comes into the store and pushes over a girl in our group
      I start hitting him with pipe pieces on the floor and he is shocked
      He claims innocence and was just trying to get her attention
      He walks back into the kitchen and asks for hours to work, they put him to work


      3/20/20

      Cooking school under one chef she is female
      We are in blue and red teams
      She asks me to make chocolate ice cream with thousand island
      I spend time walking around looking for the recipe folder
      My friend from my last restaurant job is in the crowd and wants to talk about aliens but I am busy trying to put the recipe together
      It ends up looking like a hamburger bun with ice cream in the middle
      I ask the chef if they are macaroons
      She says no that would be cream on cream
      we take a field trip to Tel Aviv to sample traditional food
      I am excited because it looks very authentic and the restaurant is filled with locals
      We file into booths along the wall
      There are mostly females and I am one of the few guys
      We look at menus and I order a coconut shrimp appetizer but don't remember ordering my main course
      The restaurant seems to be meat-based
      After we place our orders we are ushered next door to a warm springs spa where we can relax and get massages and general pampering
      It is very relaxing and the water feels great
      We are all in our bathing suits
      After some time we finish as a group and begin to congregate in front of the restaurant next door for our meal
      One guy in the group is trying to complain/make a joke that we should all be in our trousers to relax, but he is wearing a long traditional dress and so am I. He says "everyone is wearing their trousers come on", I reply slyly, "Oh really? Everyone huh?" Sarcastically, people giggle at me and the teacher next to me laughs at my observation that he is not in trousers
      We sit in new tables this time that are rectangular heavy wooden tables with wooden chairs all around
      There are maybe a dozen such large tables in the hall
      Just as people around us are getting their food a very large crowd of maybe 50 Muslim men arrive in the open-ended restaurant all cheering clapping and singing
      They go from table to table one at a time lifting every chair and table up to shoulder length while chanting a certain prayer or blessing very loudly
      When this happens I notice the women lean backward and throw their heads back and the men lean forward and bow over their table
      I want to watch but an obese man at the table next to me grabs my neck/head and holds it down during one of the blessings
      When they get to our table the food is already on it but we all stand up and let them lift our chairs and table while we stand by and attempt to sing along with the blessing
      Once they finish the whole crowd departs as quickly as they arrived singing and clapping getting quieter as they leave the area
      The whole experience was energetic and mystical almost otherworldly
      We are now sitting at our table looking at the food which has been sat in front of us. I don't remember what main I ordered but I am sure I don't have the right food, other people's meat looks really good but I think I may only have an appetizer
      The dream fades as I look around the table at everyone's entree, wondering if this is family-style or if we are only allowed to eat what we ordered.

      At a rodeo wearing a long tan coat
      There are many people there
      A native american girl keeping giving me weird looks
      A guy tries to sell me his run-down jeep cherokee for $400
      Jake Neely runs around like a wild beast chasing a cow
      I have a sniper rifle


      3/22/20

      Purple electrical storms
      5 tornadoes/dust devil's
      Eat waffle house to go
      At a school after hours hanging with a teacher

      A large america festival with thousands of people closely packed in
      Run by a company that sells fake underwater experiences using fish tanks and backdrops

      At some underground party/festival and hear a band playing in the basement
      I see a guy who looks like weird al there is no one downstairs watching
      The band sounds awesome like electro-funk and they are wearing costumes like cybertronic spree
      Lasers and light effects and smoke, it is an entrancing show
      I watch and groove for a while and a couple of people show up and are super surprised that I didn't come specifically to see the band and don't know their names
      They both are wearing cybertronic spree t-shirts
      they go back to the band manager and tell them I am living in 2015 and don't know anything but that they need promo people and I might be useful

      Something about Bin Laden coming down a river in a boat to see me
      I have two books I take with me
      We sit in the boat, it feels Egyptian
      We talk for a while
      Afterward, a guy who works for him tells me he is impressed that I talk to girls every day

      Going to Wayne's house for shamanic group
      There are many people I don't recognize
      A lot of them are young
      Gin is with me
      We watch a pixar movie about a dragon that changes colours
      There is a balloon made of glass in the room
      The shamanic practices never start
      I gather he doesn't practice anymore
      His wife left him and he lives alone

      I am trying to get to Wayne's house and driving the car through some shopping mall that is also a restaurant
      People are shocked I have a car on the walking path
      I ask a woman how to get to a certain address she tells me to follow her
      She leads me to another woman who starts to get a table for me
      I tell her I asked the other woman how to get to the address on this paper I have
      She rolls her eyes and walks away
      I decide to use my phone and google it
      I was close, his house is through a shop at the end of a corridor

      I leave Wayne's and walk down the block
      I am in Kettering by a large field
      I see Jack with his drum and many others showing up for an event
      There are maybe a hundred people there
      Jack tells me it's drum day, he asks me to move a garbage bin to the edge of the road so the smell doesn't blow into people while we play
      I am amazed there are so many people gathered.
      I am suddenly upset no one has masks on and everyone is pretending it is like before with no precautions
      I decide to go back to Wayne's to tell him about the drum circle
      He has no idea but is surprised by the coincidence
      He doesn't want to leave the house

      There is a cafe in the mall outside his house with a stage
      There are many musicians who gather to make music
      I have my guitar with me in its soft case but I don't play
      One of the musicians has a rattle that is many hands that clap when you shake it
      He has some monologue about how making tools to congratulate yourself stunts progress when you self reinforce without external checks
      A larger vehicle drives by that he made with dozens of the same rattles automatically shaking and cheers playing through loudspeakers
      It's like a mobile cheering and clapping crowd. But no one is clapping
      I am missing my guitar and go around the stage looking for it, I see several cases that are the same as mine but have other equipment in it
      I realize I left all my stuff in my car
      Someone has my possessions in a felt purse they put aside for me
      I jokingly ask if I can keep the bag and they say no
      I walk back to my car, a child asks me if I am looking for younger people, I say no I'm leaving now, everyone says bye to me

      I'm in a classroom that feels like a mix between an art room and a cafeteria
      I look at myself in the mirror and I am a younger blonde girl with odd shapes painted on my face like Bowie
      I get into a verbal argument with a table of obese african american girls sitting in front of me
      They were making fun of someone close to me and I began questioning them and telling them off
      One of them got up and started walking towards me
      I mock their actions asking them if they were going to hit me because they disagree with me
      I am on a roll and they don't know how to respond because everyone around them is astonished they are being told off by a little girl
      A bigger girl who looks trans begins to get an attitude with me, I tell her off just the same
      People are on my side because I am standing up to horrible people who are known bullies
      She eventually gets fed up and walks away
      People are happy for me
      I make a comment about something big as she walks away because I notice she is a head taller than everyone else
      People go ooooooooh and I feel like I have won the day

      *NSFW*
      Spoiler for NSFW:


      3/26/20

      Road trip south to Florida w family
      Get there and realize Gin isn't with us
      They say she's not invited and I get angry and yell
      It's a white house kinda run down I think it may be my uncle's second home
      We stay on the first floor
      I go to the basement to explore
      It is dark and cavernous like a dungeon
      Cody is with me as we venture from room to room
      There is water under the floor
      There are tons of red jellyfish looking creatures in the water
      I Google them on my phone
      I slip into the water once but they don't bother me
      Cody helps me up
      We go into a larger room that has metal bars all around the windows like a prison and a very large almost statue-like dagger/feather hanging diagonally from the ceiling through the room
      The whole room is musky and rank with cobwebs all over and vines hanging from the ceiling
      My mother's brother shows up and flips on the light switch to the room
      The lights flick on and everything looks normal now, flat white walls and tile floors
      I am shocked that it looked so crazy before and wonder what the effect is
      I pull out my flashlight on my phone and turn the lights to the room off again and shine it
      I see now the effect, the light shines through the thin walls and shows the bars in the other side of the windows and such
      The large feather dagger hanging from the middle of the room is gone
      I try to describe it and mention I have seen it before, I've been here before

      I am with a group of friends in a post-apocalyptic scenario
      Many people are migrating at once and there is chaos
      Large crowds of people walking down the street congregating at certain waypoints to meet with others
      At one of the waypoints I see a girl I used to know, only she looks slightly different
      I glance at her name tag and it says Elizabeth though I know her IRL name is Savannah
      I say loudly, Elizabeth eh? As I walk out of the crowded room with her to my back
      She is with one of her friends and calls out to me when we get outside
      I go back to her and we talk
      She looks different but still familiar, slightly rougher as if life has been tough for her
      She mentions she has a place where we can sleep for the night if we need
      My friends are very interested because we are nomadic survivors now and will take anything we can get
      It skips to the house where she offered us to stay
      We are all in one room and there are three beds in it
      The sheets are made but it feels like an old person's house
      I realize that people have died in these beds and there are towels on the floor at the end of the beds with fluids on them
      There is that stale putrid smell in the air
      I ask if it's true and she says yes, the place she works at deals with body removal and she gets to use whatever is leftover
      I am immediately bothered by the situation
      I cannot sleep in a bed that someone just died in
      Someone in the room questions me as to my hangups and I tell them
      "The fabric of space-time, the literal three-dimensional space is torn or altered by the transition when someone dies. This place is tainted by death"
      The person struggles to listen to me and kind of rolls their eyes at me
      I don't care and leave

      There is a fragment where I am with a large hispanic family
      One of them has started a food truck and is catering a party they are having
      Everything is free and laid out like a cookout
      People have their fill and there is still plenty of leftovers I pick through
      Some 7 layer taco dip
      Some chips, some tacos, and a tres leches cake with white icing
      It all tastes very good but I don't have any utensils and eat with my hands
      The icing goes everywhere

      I am on some gameshow with several over thieves and criminals
      We all take the same tour bus around town
      I gather the theme is something about who can steal the most without getting caught
      We are given nothing and no help
      But everyone must be secretive and no one really talks to each other
      At the store, one guy tries to take a large pallet of rolled quarters but is immediately caught by security
      I bend over to help and hand the stack of rolled quarters back to the guard
      While doing so I skim two rolls of the top with my fingers without anyone noticing
      Sweet I am broke and hungry as hell
      We are all walking around a grocery store trying to figure out what to buy to eat
      Everyone else is looking for packaged processed food
      I go to the fruit isle because it is the cheapest and best nutrients for the buck
      I buy some lemons and avocado with my change
      I go back to the RV we are staying in and make a pitcher of lemonade and eat the avocado
      Someone else was caught trying to steal something
      I go back out and attempt again
      We are by a casino that has large golden letters on a sign
      I take one and wrap it in a towel and barely make it back to the RV
      It is then revealed to me that I have been caught and the whole show was secretly being filmed about us, not about what we were told
      I manage to escape in a bathrobe with my pitcher of lemonade in my hand
      I am with someone else who is older and reminds me of my mentor Doug
      We steal an armored RV which belongs to the security following the show
      They are not pleased and shoot at us as we drive away
      We crash through a gas station and stop for some reason
      Doug asks me if we want an assistant
      There is a younger asian boy who wants to join our adventure
      I am appalled because it is dangerous and I don't think we need to have a child involved with this
      He asks the kid if he wants to come and he says yes so we let him on board
      We drive away speedily while being shot at by the pursuers
      The windows and the car are bulletproof
      I find an assault rifle loaded in the back, I cock it, take off the safety and proceed to try to shoot back, all the windows are barely cracked but not open really
      As one of them starts to drive up close to us on the back right I stick the nozzle of the gun out the crack and shoot out one of their tires
      We are on the highway going very fast and they immediately wreck into the sidewall
      We lose our pursuers and continue driving along
      I begin searching the RV for any supplies
      It seems brand new and not stocked at all
      I find a mini-fridge and go through it
      Nothing but an empty lunch bag in it
      But I pull a cover from the back and discover a boatload of cookie dough of various flavors
      I hand some off to Doug and the kid
      We munch on cookie dough while driving away to freedom, the dream fades


      3/28/20

      I am in a bigger white house sleeping in a bed with gin and another couple
      They are older and the woman looks kind of washed up
      I had seen another couple in the house cleaning that looked just like the other couple and the woman told me it's her sister who is now with her ex. He looks like the other guy but they are not related
      I gather we own the house now but they still live there as cleaners
      They also have kids who are running around
      I am not very amused and find the whole thing rather unprofessional

      I am suddenly in another house which is like a small studio
      There is a guy with a shaved head and hair on the front of his head only and glasses
      He is showing a custom washing machine he built which fills itself with a container of soap and starts itself at a tap, he is proud of it
      He leaves and his girlfriend begins to give me the tour/introduction
      I am in an Airbnb of sorts but it is very small
      It is rustic and in the middle of nowhere in the forest
      The bed I will be sleeping in is in the same room as their kitchen/laundry room and she tells me she will be coming into the room to do things but she won't bother me
      I am fine with the arrangement because there isn't a lot of space
      I venture around the land and it is very green
      There is a small stream running parallel to the property and there is bright green moss all around the base of the many trees
      I see large spiral snail shells in the moss and amazed by their size

      I am suddenly in a post-industrial landscape with a large cathedral-like manor that houses an orphanage or church I am unsure
      I was once part of the community but now gather things have changed and I am different
      They have a prophecy of a dark one I may be fulfilling
      I begin flying around the many rooms in circles high in the air
      I am dressed as Santa Claus
      I continually shout Merry Christmas as I fly by people
      The kids all point and laugh but the adults are cautious and lead them away
      I feel several loose spiral shells in my mouth and spit them out to look
      My hands and face have gone dark
      I am eating a slushy from a paper pack and slow down by an adult, they take the trash from me
      They make a comment I am acting like a child now and laugh though most of them still fear me

      Lucid fragments

      I am laying in bed and G pops her head around the corner and asks me if we have a t-shirt with the word NASA on it. Cause someone is here who wants it back. I know immediately this is a dream and tell her no one is here because I am dreaming. I nosepinch and affirm it.

      Several times I start to wake up and partially open my eyes to see my bedroom and re-enter the dream with a nosepinch.

      One of the times I pop back into a bedroom which is larger than my own and I gather I am in a large house. There is a girl in the room who looks like Amanda Seyfried who is fawning for me. I understand I am not supposed to be there and her father is in the house looking for me. So I wander through some rooms and find myself in a large walk-in closet, the dream starts to collapse several times so I rub my hands together to bring it back. I am in the closet so I reach out to feel the clothes hanging up to get a tactile sensation making the dream more anchored. I notice there is a makeup vanity set up in the corner of the dark walk in closet. She slips in the closet and kisses me a few times as her father draws nearer, she then walks out to distract him while I hide in the large dark closet.

      Starting to wake up again I nosepinch and re-enter another dream. I am in my bedroom again and there are 2 random people in the room. I know this isn't real because I'm quarantined and don't have company. They disappear and I sit up to start talking to the dream. I say 'I am aware I am dreaming', I nosepinch again and the dream gets clearer. Everything is very bright crisp and the layout to my room is slightly different than IWL. I say out loud 'I know I am dreaming right now, I am listening, show me what I need to see' I look around and partially notice a couple attachable lamps/mini electric devices hanging from my bed frame. I say again, 'I am listening, show me' and suddenly the two devices light up with life and begin buzzing around my head like small single propeller drones. One of them hovers inches from my face looking directly at me. I am cautious in the first instant but immediately calm myself acknowledging this is the dream communicating with me.

      It is a white plastic device which has a rounded cone end like the tip of a rocket and buzzing propeller blades which keep it aloft. I calmly watch it for a few seconds while the second one buzzes around to the right of me. I say 'Hello, show me what I need to know' it hovers bouncing inches from my face for almost 30 seconds with no indication of changing. I repeat again, 'I am watching, show me' I feel the dream start to collapse but maintain the awareness by feeling the sheets in my hands without changing my vision. It flies over to the second one on the right of me. I look down my bed and see the two of them circling each other like small bats in flight. They are pointing towards my stack of books at the foot of my bed, flying towards them then away in a "Look here" type manner. The dream fades and I awake in my dark bedroom.

      Note: there are ~50 books stacked against my bookcase at the foot of my bed from a library sale last year, perhaps my answer is in here?

      Kostas the Grecian baker is showing off a pumpkin plant growing on the wall of his bakery, talking about keeping the roots on the wall because it is so beautiful. I think he wants to harvest the blossoms to cook. I agree whole heartily and take some video for him.

      I am walking down a hallway in a school going to class, all other classes have already begun. No one minds that I am late to the room.
      I sit down at an open desk with my backpack. Everyone is already going over a test or homework.
      When I sit down the desk is small and I fall backwards with the desk attached to me doing a roll, everyone kind of laughs but nothing is too disrupted.
      I realize I am 32 and have been out of school for quite a while. I shout 'hey everyone! This is a dream!'
      They cheer and start to get up, the teacher looks defeated. I say out loud that this should be obvious because I am older and have been out of highschool for over a decade, so this is definitely a dream.
      I tell the whole class to pinch their nose and breathe to prove they are dreaming. Some are confused, some do it. I do it together with them and prove that I am on fact dreaming. It's a great feeling.
      I leave the classroom, there is a group of students standing in the doorway blocking my way. I ask them if this is a door, because it definitely looks like a door. And one by one they move out of my way begrudgingly. The dream destabilizes multiple times in the hallway so I drop to the floor and feel the cool tile with my hands to re-stabilize the dream the hallway comes back into clarity and I begin walking again.
      This happens several times in the dream I always drop down and feel the ground or rub my hands as I feel the dream start to collapse and with some focus it rematerializes around me.
      While outside I fly around with ease, not as much effort as I remember it taking. I have a sort of iron man pose.
      The school is now a 1800's military academy and I see rows of students/soldiers carrying bayonets.
      They are scared of me, one of them throws their bayonet and almost hits me as I fly over. I fly higher into the air and over the pond. It's an old campus with a large pond in the middle and many older trees like southern live oaks.
      The dream starts to crash again so I land and feel the grass through my fingers,I pay attention to the sounds of the water and the street nearby. The scene comes back but the soldiers are gone. There are creatures now moving faster than vision almost.
      I reach out my hands and control one that has gone by me and is almost on the other side of the water.
      I intend to control its movement and wind it back like a toy. I see it's movement slow. It is like an animated toyish looking trex that belongs on a playground spring but it is moving around very fast, it moves backwards and forwards and I am content with my control so I let it go.

      I tell someone close to me that I am dreaming and they tell me to come with them, we all get in a car and they tell me I have to meet Theodore Roosevelt, they tell me that I'm gonna love Teddy.
      He is showing me his collection of cars, one of them looks like a pre-model T but it's combined with a wooden boat. Without saying anything I help him take it down off a rack and fold the wheels down to drive. I complement the antiquity of the collection and tell him the oldest one is my favorite, Teddy is much more informal than I am expecting as he is wearing swim shorts and a safari hard hat. His mustache is large and pointy.
      We go into an army bunker with other officers and the dream starts to collapse again. I drop down and feel the cool floor, then the windowsill and start to take in all the details and senses. The dream comes back but the men are gone. There is a redhead now who looks similar to Lucile ball. She is sitting on the edge of a desk in an all khaki military dress.
      She is pleased to meet me, I ask if it's really her and she nods. I am so pleased to see her again. I wrap my arms around her lower half and just embrace her. I tell someone else in the room that this is the Prime Matriarch. She is my guide, I have been looking for her for literally months. It is an immense relief to be finally close to her so I just breathe it in for a few minutes.
      There are several props and maps around the room she begins trying to show me things while explaining, I don't grasp the meaning of anything she says but the warmth of her presence is comforting.
      The dream destabilizes again and I rub my hands together quickly and feel the walls of the barracks.
      I hear talking and can feel sensations of the walls but my vision hasn't returned yet. I imagine where I just was and intend to step back into the barracks.

      I am now with a couple old friends in their apartment. They show me a collectable figurine they have from one of the Batman cartoons. He undoes the box in a meticulous way to show me the figure inside and puts it all back before going into the other room.
      The box falls forward and I grab it to put back on the shelf. Everything has become shifted in the box and I attempt to put it right. But nothing fits the way it was. I try to fold the box back up the correct way and am unsuccessful, I know they will be displeased that I messed up their collectable. They are leaving to go get ice cream across the street I tell them to wait for me while I struggle with the box
      I finally give up and admit defeat, I have the thought that they will think I was trying to play with the toy rather than admire the collectable. They go ahead of me to the ice cream place anyway.

      I am now in a 50's style diner, it's packed with classmates and people I used to know, they are all at different tables having their own conversations. I gather that I am still dreaming but don't intend to change anything.
      I see the girl with blue hair and I tug on it as I walk by her but don't say anything. She follows me around so I talk to her in passing, then a girl I used to date runs up to me like an excited puppy and tries to derail my attention. It works and I give her the drink I have in my hand. The dream starts to crash so I drop to the floor again to re-stabilize.

      The diner disappears, I am now in a highrise corner new york flat with large windows looking out to the night time city and only one other guy in it. He looks identical to Mark Sheppard. I tell him that I am dreaming and he agrees with me, I go through several periods of almost waking up but always come back into this room. Maybe 4 or 5 times. He is impressed but attempts to get my name. When he speaks details it is gibberish and the same with me, so he tries to write it down. They look like wingdings combined with korean characters. I describe very clearly what I see.
      He tells me he wrote his name. But I cannot read it. He is very amused that we can have normal conversation but certain details seem to be 'edited' in real time from us. He tells me to find him when I wake up.
      I write my name down in permanent marker but he tells me it just looks like random gibberish to him. We are both amused that we can't seem to share each other's name. I do manage to piece it together one of the times I phase back into his apartment after partially destabilizing. He says his name is Marc Bilit. I need to find him when I wake up. He is also surprised when I come back into the room. Apparently when I destabilize I just disappear from right in front of him, and when I come back I just pop back into existence. He is very tickled by this occurrence. Marc Bilit. Remember Marc Bilit it's very important that I find him when I wake up. We are working to understand cross communication between dreams.
    6. Revolution and Aurora's Concert

      by , 12-06-2020 at 05:02 AM (Oneironautic Escapades)
      12/5/20

      Some large slave revolt where we all kill our masters/bourgeoisie.
      There is a large sword battle at some plantation just after arriving with a large group of tradesmen. It is spanning the outside and indoor docking area. At a certain point I am struggling against an older bald man while holding the bendy blade of a long thin rapier which bends like a fencing sword. Everyone was dressed like revolutionary times though it feels kind of piratey.
      There is a family left after everything dies down who are kind of deranged, the father looks like Andy Garcia.
      They are making jokes at the end about having an affinity for toes and fingers. The father is almost yelling at the family, but still going along with it in a joking manner.
      There is the main master dead or dying pinned to the wall, they exact their revenge in grotesque fashion.
      Talking to the daughter about how she likes her french toast afterwards. She mentions wanting to be charged for peanut butter on it but she wants to cook it for herself when the time comes and to let her know.
      It feels like I'm at a waffle house now.

      I have walked into a neighbor's house down the street for help handling a bunch of things. Including a giant raw turkey on a cutting board. They are mourning the loss of the head of the household who is Dimebag Darrel. The wife is very friendly and she helps me get all of my possessions under control. I leave the turkey outside for a duration of time and when I come back it is missing and someone is complaining that it was just sitting out in the open so they got rid of it. But someone else had donated an even larger turkey so that was very kind. I befriend the daughter in the process who ends up being Aurora. She asks Ben and I to help her perform in front of their church later on. While preparing for the event we realize we don't have any music or lyrics to prepare with. At a certain point I become lucid and tell everyone around me. 'Its ok! I am lucid dreaming right now! It will be fine, we don't need to prepare, I am lucid dreaming it will work out fine when the time comes!' I continue the dream plot to the concert and gather we are doing a sort of 'battle of the bands' style competition. The other duo are doing Christian mumble rap and we are doing a techno-country style. At some point we are dressed up in costumes and have glam makeup on. I have on thick winged eyeliner and a black bob wig. I don't think we ever performed with Aurora but she hung out with us afterwards. She was relieved we did well and she asked me to give her a massage. She sat in a low to the ground gaming L chair. I reached over the shoulders and massaged her shoulders/back for a while. She really enjoyed it but then got self conscious about enjoying it so much. I gather that Ben has left me with all of these people who are kind of like Aurora's posse. No one drives and I am across town not close to my house. I see a Meijer in the distance but it is not the one closest to my house. I decide to start walking back. There are groups of trannies all hanging around outside a dimly lit bowling alley. I gather people think I am a girl.
    7. The Other Me, and the Elemental Queen

      by , 08-17-2012 at 12:18 AM (Oneironautic Escapades)
      It all began while I was in the living room of my parents home. Things looked fairly familiar and normal, only their behaviour was off. They told me that I needed to sit down because they had something important to tell me. I was more wrapped up in figuring out why things seemed odd in the upstairs, there was a blanket hanging on the wall that was never there before, and our kitchen appliances were mixed around, though they were the same models. My parents kept telling me they had to tell me something important, but I went outside on the back porch. I noticed our small pond (that is usually there) had been expanded to the whole width of the backyard, it looked fresh and I noticed one of our neighbors who does our landscaping exiting the backyard through the fence carrying a shovel. I realized that though my backyard was the same, the differences were outstanding. Coupled with the living room observations and the kitchen, it occurred to me I must have slipped into a parallel dimension. Logically it made sense, everything being similar but slightly skewed fits right into my personal beliefs of parallel dimensions. I was back in my living room, my parents told me to sit down, I sat and told them I already figured it out, they told me I wasn't supposed to be there. I asked them if this was a different dimension and they both nodded. It occurred to me that if they were here, then 'I' must be here as well.
      I suddenly started hearing loud metal music coming from the basement, I ventured down the stairs with wonder if I would see myself. As I turned the corner I saw 3 guys, one with his back to me who was built curling a barbell, one spotting him, and another sitting on a weight bench just talking to the other two. The spotter saw me first, throwing him off his spot as the lifter slipped one hand and the barbell clanked down by my feet. He turned around and I saw him. Me. I saw me, looking him straight in the eyes, he looked exactly like me, with 30 more pounds of muscle. I was stunned. His friends were somewhat speechless as well. We spoke, but I lost the words, I must have told him I was from somewhere else far away yet very close to here. I began to speak of dimensions and I could tell it was over his head, he didn't have thought for metaphysics or theology, 'Great' I thought 'My other self is a meathead'
      As I went back outside I was greeted by a woman with short spiky hair with several facial piercings. She was familiar and I knew immediately she knew who I was and where I was from, she told me to come with her. I sat in the backseat of some vehicle while I watched my other self walking to another vehicle 50 feet in front of us or so. I commented to the person I was sitting next that this was too real, looking at my hands and all the details of the inner car I thought to myself it was too real to be a dream. I told the one next to me that I lucid dream all the time, and that if this was a lucid dream I would be able to control things. So I looked away from my other self who was wearing a blue shirt and I spoke, he is wearing a PURPLE shirt. When I looked back his shirt was purple. Oh, well that settles it I guess I am dreaming, yet I continued down the dreamplot to see where my venture would take me. It was explained to me that this realm was governed differently than my own. What we consider to be mythic lore and magic are their science and sentient species.
      Several jumps and skips, I am shown a catacomb-like city with odd transports which float on air. And many different beings. The evil queen discovers that I am in their realm and must be hunted down. She sends elementals after me/us. My spiky-haired guide has been with me all along though most details escape me. I do remember a being made of brick, only able to travel through the brick walls which are rooted all through the city. His form only manifests where he chooses to step out of the brick, but his travel is still heard through the walls. One of the elementals is on our side as he tells me of their powers and limitations. My last memory from the dream is of the queen who looks surprisingly like Maleficent mixed with an elf. I am awaken by my phone ringing.
    8. Carnival Islands, dino-babies, and a church prom

      by , 08-03-2012 at 11:12 PM (Oneironautic Escapades)
      So last night was my first night on brain sups.
      Picked up some Melatonin, Choline, and B6, took one of each about 30 min before bed.
      Initial core sleep 11-7 was latent with fragments, no recollections though
      Laid awake for almost an hour attempting a WILD or some visualizations to no avail. Turned off my sleep tracker on my phone and checked my messages, after I felt tired so I rolled over and fell back.. into the fun.

      Standing in some large grassy meadow I realized I was no longer in my room and must be dreaming, looked at my hands to stabilize and decided to take to the air.
      Feeling the wind rush past me was an exhilarating feeling as I gained altitude. Thinking there must be some kind of civilization around I found a small village which looked french from 200 years ago or so. I circled the town but then decided I would stay airborne and continue to explore the island I was on, as I climbed I played with willing my speed faster and slower. As I am fairly new to sustained flight I figured I needed the practice. Some lucidity was lost as I sped up because I was looking down and my mind couldn't keep with the details of the passing ground. I remembered this happening in a previous dream so to establish more control I focused on the distance. It was then I saw several other islands connected to the one I was flying around. Their design was somewhat colonial mixed with the bright colors of a carnival, there were 3 other islands tied together in kind of a line, each with varying size and infrastructure design. They were far in the distance and I remember thinking how amazingly detailed everything was, pondering how wonderful my mind was that I could dream such magnificent things. In trying to decide if I wanted to visit the other islands I got caught up in the details of the ground again, I lost lucidity and the dream faded as I fell.

      Not certain I fully woke up, as most of these were Deilds. I relaxed back into a dream and I was suddenly surrounded by african americans. We were at a wedding. There was much joy for the celebration but it seemed it was located at a fair ground of sorts. Dusty ground and the smell of fried food in the air. I was wondering through the crowd when I noticed a friend of mines brother in a doorway to a small shack, he signaled me over. As I approached the door he took a drag of his smoke and stepped inside, it was a dark room with somewhat cramped furnishings. He kept telling me how awesome his flat screen was, when I looked at the wall it was on it was a tube, with a flat screen, probably 12 inches diagonal. I smiled and decided to go back out to the gathering, there was a woman on the PA system making some announcement. Every time she finished talking I would shout 'Dino-Babies!' into the crowd from behind something. The dream faded and I transitioned.

      Now in a large house there were exotic women all around. I was lucid for most of this one as I phased through many walls and windows. The details escape me as most of it was me running from woman to woman and making out with them. Some smiled, others were taken aback by my sudden inappropriate action. Settling more into the idea that I was dreaming and most of the DC here were for my amusement , I continually rubbed my hands together to stabilize the dream if my excitement started to get the better of me. It almost seemed as if there was a meeting going on, yet I was too overwhelmed by the estrogen in the air to come to full awareness. Towards the end I had a petite woman sitting on my lap who was straddling me, caressing her arse I decided to slip a finger into the warm spot. She was soft and slightly humid, could not believe how tight she was just on my finger. The excitement lost me my lucidity and my alarm rang just as I was beginning to get mr. member's tip in.

      Suddenly I am standing in a large group of people, we're all wearing tux's and gowns as it seems to be a prom of some kind. Recognizing most of the people from the church I used to go to as well as my old private school. Realizing I was dreaming I decided to seek out an old childhood crush, everytime I think I see her in a group of friends I turn her around and its someone else. We're in a large cabin type center that has wooden support beams and a soft mahogany furniture everywhere. Wondering to the back of the hall I see an old friend who is wheel-chair bound hiding in the corner with her face turned. I approach her and her turns to me, she's been crying.
      'Emily?! What's wrong? Why are you crying?'
      'They are making fun of me because I keep beating them in cards'
      'How can they do that? Its just a game..'
      'I know, but they say i'm not normal'
      'No one is normal Em, what did they say?'
      'Because I've spent my whole life in this chair I have developed a sort of ESP, all games are very easy for me, especially cards, they fear what they don't understand'
      'That's amazing! How could anyone get mad at that!'
      'I just want to be like everyone else'
      'No, don't say that, you're special. You're like this for a reason, you should support your abilities and stand proud. You have purpose in this life, I don't doubt'
      'I guess, thank you so much Noah' she smiled
      I smiled back 'Here, come back with me'
      She nodded and took my hand as we rejoined everyone else
      It was obvious everyone was now looking at me with her as we approached a group of old friends, getting sideways glances and whispers. I found the friend I was looking for before and she gave me odd looks now that I was with Em. We were all sitting at a table when I noticed a guy at the table behind us speaking loud enough for us to hear
      'Its just not right! People like that shouldn't be allowed to live..'
      I turned back to him, death glared, and began a very poignant monologue on the validity of all humans. Details escaping I remembered the very last line
      'People are people no matter who they are.'
    9. Holy Mother of Lucidity!

      by , 07-04-2012 at 12:47 AM (Oneironautic Escapades)
      Thankfully!
      Finally had a wonderful string of lucids last night/ this morning! SO AMAZING
      it has been well over a month since any clear lucidity was had. And finally 3-4 times just in one night I was able to become lucid in dreamscape! Whew what a rush, I don't even know where to begin. Most certainly these arose from increased reality checks, my plan to teach as many people as possible to reality check while awake. Though in my dream I never did my rehearsed check. It was always realized by either lack of gravity or something being out of place that cued my awareness.
      Every time I realized I was in a dream I was focused on jumping great distances, running as fast as I could and jumping miles at a time. I was so exhilarated the majority of the dreams I was just laughing hysterically. Of course I wasn't content with just the speed and agility, I am bound by no physical perimeters! I am going to fly! So I took to the sky, traveling fast and slow I traversed from city to city, eventually crossing the globe. The feeling was so exquisite! Several times during the dream I thought to myself, "This is why dreaming rocks, need more!"
      Completely amazed at the ongoing experience the excitement dulled my lucidity in place of dreamplot. Several times I would "Snap back" into the reality that I was dreaming and continue exploring. I feel as though I spent a prolonged time in the dream realm, noting that I had been dreaming for a while whilst in one of the last dreams. My recall has been below par recently so the details escape me. But the experience far rejuvenates my desire to rejoin the non-physical.
      Here's to many more, clearer, longer, and more insightful adventures
    10. Grand Mansion

      by , 02-11-2012 at 02:13 AM (Oneironautic Escapades)
      One of the most vivid beginnings
      WILD combo'd SUNEYE method
      Walked directly into dream of complete crispness and reality
      An outdoor oasis connected to a grand building
      A hall of greats, or more like a commonground of all men of old
      I felt humbled by a shared presence of beings
      My guide ushered me in, helping me into this new plane
      When confronted about his true identity as a character in my dream
      He responded "I am the guy who invented gravity"
      His appearance shifted with his will to express himself
      He was a young Hispanic looking male, then an older sage looking professor
      Sir Isaac Newton was my dream guide, and I was on cloud nine
      The majority of the experience I felt aware that I was inside a dreamstate, though it began as a crisp solitary landscape I believe I succumbed to the plot of conscious desires
      I 'fell' from the crispness of higher plane existance and began an inter-weaved trajectory of fragmented situations and impression based conversations
      My hands were my ground. Anytime the dream began to collapse, due either to longwinded interactions with dream characters or a hazy intention, I looked at my hands to realize the silhouette between flesh and flood was a mass of squiggles. Reminding me of the current dream and situation I demanded clarity and moved forward with what was taking place.
      I was in a great hall, once led by Newton he had departed from me once I began to entertain the frivolous dreamplots. There were many familiar yet distant faces and impressions. I conversed with DC to see what my SC wanted to inform me of. We spoke of mastering flying and how true intention only comes to fruition if absolute belief is had.
      I was jumping while explaining my difficulties with sustained flight.
      With increased altitude I attempted to fly to a nearby floating oasis in the sky, only to free-fall halfway there.
      Dissapointed byt not frightened while watching the platforms I was once on fade above me, I manifested a new scenario and instantly appeared in a room with all wood furnishings and a classic Victorian fireplace.
      She was pointing a gun at me-- shaped like a shotgun only somehow steampunked with a technospin-- at me.
      She told me I wasn't supposed to be there.
      Whomever was responsible for my presence would be punished, for I was not ready to experience what I had been presented with.
      Delving back into dream plots and ill faded fictitious meanderings, I practiced levetation, increased vision, manifesting specific people, and conversations with DC
      Lucidity was about 75%
      Reemerging back into the dreamscape from waking 3-4 times.
      But the time came to a close when all I could dream was on a projector screen in my head frozen mid-action.
      Finally releasing the state I rejoined this reality and awoke.
