      1: Surfboard and a truck
      I’m walking towards a beach in The Netherlands. It doesn’t actually look like any beach I’ve ever been, but it’s perfectly normal in my dreaming mind. I’m walking on a path and the beach starts on my left. I am carrying a surfboard (which I’ve never used in WL) under my left arm. There’s three people sitting on towels on the sand right in the corner of the beach. I walk towards them and I think I ask them whether they would watch my surfboard while I go do something else. They agree very kindly (at which I am slightly surprised) and I lay down the surfboard and walk away.
      *Now 6 hours or more have passed; all I remember from these 6 hours is that I regularly think “I hope they’re still there with my surfboard” *
      Once again, I am walking towards the beach, wondering whether the surfboard will still be there. Just before the corner where the beach starts and the people were sitting, there is a truck with a small trailer on the road. I fumble in my pockets for keys, find them, and get in the truck. While driving it, I decide I have to turn it around, so I am looking for space to perform this manoeuvre (I have never actually driven a truck in WL). I manage to turn it around partly, and get out. A man with a ring of keys in his hand walks up to me and asks me whether the keys are mine. I search my pocket for the keys I need to unlock the surfboard that suddenly appears besides me, and find them after a while. I tell the man that I have my own keys, and he walks away. Here the dream ends.
      2: Game of Thrones video game

      I am playing a game that is supposed to be about GoT but doesn’t resemble it in the slightest way. It is a colourful platformer. At first, I think I control a female character, walking through rooms and jumping on mushrooms. The idea is to land on the mushroom with the most spots on it without falling to the ground. I succeed marvellously, and then my sister walks in. I explain to her what I am playing and feel a little embarrassed for liking such a childish-looking game. I start again (or the next level?) and I control a chicken or a duck now. It can fly a little, but not long, and cannot walk up steep slopes. This adds a nice difficulty to the game (the level has changed completely). I first send the bird from one cliff to another which is lower and I barely make it. Then I fly down to a riverbank, but it is quite steep and I have some difficulty keeping out of the water. Then I wake up.
      3: Pissing

      I am standing at a row of urinals in a bathroom, supposedly of a school of some kind. To my right is Emiel, to my left is Mauro, both of whom I haven’t seen in years. There’s some chatter between us I can’t remember. I wake up with a desperate need to go to the bathroom.

    3. 11/03/16 - 12/03/16: Planning to move to France

      by , 03-13-2016 at 01:50 PM
      I went out friday night, so I didn't expect much and didn't get much, but what I got was actually very interesting.

      Went to bed: 02:30
      Final awakening: 7:30

      Daytime techniques: Practicing self-awareness using state-checks.
      Nighttime techniques: None

      1: Planning to move to France

      I'm with my parents and little brother, sitting at the dining table. We are looking at a map of a part of Europe, including The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Spain. On the map you can see city names (I remember Brussels and Paris in particular) and a train route going from Amsterdam to the east of France, the border with southern Germany. In the east of France, at the far end of the route, there is a picture showing some rollercoasters (really small, as if looking at them from an airplane). We are talking about where we should go or something, but it also has to do with me moving out of the house (since I attend university now). My brother becomes very enthousiastic when he sees the rollercoasters, because one of them is apparently the biggest of the world. I look closer at the train route, and along the route are tags on which you can see whether the train stops at every station or only at large cities. Also, along one of the lines, the words "LUCID DREAMING" are written, and I notice them, but don't pay any further attention to the words. I say something like: "Oh, they're all really fast trains so I might even go there and back home every day!", jokingly, and we all laugh. Then I wake up and feel really stupid,
    4. 10/03/16 - 11/03/16: Exam stress, two men sailing the streets, playing in the toilet

      by , 03-13-2016 at 01:28 PM
      Really weird and uneasy night, resulting in nice recall.

      Went to bed: 22:00
      Fell asleep: 22:30 ?
      Awakening 1: ?
      Final awakening: 5:50

      Daytime techniques: Regular state checks as self-awareness practice
      Nighttime techniques: Water method

      1: Exam stress, 12 themes

      I'm sitting behind my laptop scrolling through YouTube, looking for a particular video I had watched in waking life that day, and everything looked like the right thing but nothing was quite it, leaving me very frustrated. I look at the clock regularly, because I have to be taking an exam this day.


      I'm at the place where I should be taking the exam in about 6 hours. My father is standing there, and I am panicking because I have no idea what should've studied for the exam. I ask my father and he tells me I should be familiar with the 12 themes. In the dream this makes sense, but I haven't the slightest clue what this actually means.


      I'm home again and I look at the clock. It is 11:30, apparently (which doesn't make any sense if you realise how much I had been doing already. I try to plan my route to where the exam will be taken, but get distracted every time. I look at the clock again, it still reads 11:30, but now I realise (falsely remember) that the exam would start at this exact time and I have to travel for two hours to get there. I stress out completely, get a huge surge of adrenaline and wake up.

      2: Sailing the streets

      I don't have a body in this dream and just watch 2 men in a motorized boat. They are moving through the streets of my hometown, since the streets are completely flooded. On some spots there's still some ice (seems like Ice Age: Meltdown) and the men talk about being lucky that there isn't much ice left.

      3: Playing in the toilet

      One of the strangest dreams I've ever had. I'm sitting in the toilet at home, and I am flooding it completely. Somehow the water can't get out of the toilet so there's a 30 cm layer of water on the floor. I am sitting on the floor, in the water. All around me are small, floating black and white rubber balls of different sizes, and when I touch them they multiply. Meanwhile I am playing a game on my laptop which I only remember being really difficult.
    5. 09/03/16 - 10/03/16: Danish woman doesn't like Trump

      by , 03-13-2016 at 12:34 PM
      So, I've been slacking with my dream journal the last few days, only managing to type up some short notes in my phone. I'm going to update it now, but I don't really remember bedtimes and awakenings that well.

      Went to bed: 22:00 ?
      Fell asleep: 22:30 ?
      Final awakening: 6:45

      Daytime techniques: Practicing self-awareness using state checks very regularly.
      Nighttime techniques: ?

      1: Danish woman doesn't like Trump

      I'm cycling down the path between the lines of trees near the train station (I cycle this route every day). I look behind me once and I think I see a girl I know from high school. I slow down so she can catch up. As she does, I say 'Hi!' before really looking at her again. When I do, I see it is not her, but an older woman with similar hair. I say 'Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else (in Dutch)". She replies, in German: "I don't understand you, I am Danish." We then have a short conversation in a mixture of Dutch, German and English. I don't remember what it was about exactly, but in the end the topic becomes Donald Trump. I remember exactly what I had to say about him (I was surprised about how clear my mind was when saying this): "He feeds the nationalist feelings of the American people with his bullshit talk."Then I woke up.
    6. 08/03/16 - 09/03/16: Nothing recalled

      by , 03-09-2016 at 07:29 AM
      Okay, so I've been in a bad spot with recall the last few days. I'm gonna get out of it tonight using a mantra "I remember my dreams" before sleep. Last night was especially bad because I only got 6 hours of sleep because I just couldn't get to sleep at first.
      Let's just hope for the REM rebound tonight!

      Went to bed: 22:00
      Fell asleep: 00:30
      Final awakening: 06:40

      Methods, techniques and supplements used: water method, light visualization in bed

      Daytime techniques: Regular state check, a lot of time on DV

      -- No dreams recalled at all
    7. 07/03/16 - 08/03/16: Brief lucidity and some other dreams

      by , 03-08-2016 at 08:34 PM
      So, I've been really stupid. When I woke up this morning I remembered getting lucid, and two decent non-lucids. The lucid dream (although very, very short) stuck with me throughout the day, but the others have slipped from my mind (usually they don't that easily ).

      Went to bed: 22:00
      Fell asleep: 22:30
      Awakening 1: 06:00
      Fell asleep: 06:05
      Final awakening: 06:45

      Methods, supplements and techniques used: water method, apple juice.
      Daytime techniques: Regular state checks

      1: Lucidity at my old house

      I am standing in the house I grew up in, but no longer live. I become lucid without any particular trigger and don't need to reality check either. I am pretty excited, but my level of awareness is really quite low. I instantly decided to try telekinesis (which has never really been a goal of mine yet). I tried to make a bowl rise above the table it was lying on using my mind only. I believe it worked, but it messed up stability instantly. Somehow a stabilizing method I have read about a couple days ago came to mind: rubbing my tongue against the inside of my teeth. It worked really well, but I don't remember anything after that.
    8. 06/03/16 - 07/03/16: Brother's watch, I'm the new chairman, Revealed Recordings

      by , 03-07-2016 at 08:45 AM
      Tonight was a bit restless, but it ended up in a couple nice dreams that weren't very long but I recall them in more detail than I usually do.

      Went to bed: 22:30
      Fell asleep: 23:30
      Awakening 1: 01:45
      Fell asleep: 02:30
      Awakening 2: 05:30
      Fell asleep: 05:31
      Final awakening: 06:35

      Methods used: apple juice, water method

      1: Little brother checks on me, his watch turns into a ring

      It's 01:30 or something and I'm sitting on the toilet. I can hear my little brother speaking to my parents in the attic (where my parents sleep). They are saying that my brother should go check on what I'm still doing up. So, as I walk out of the toilet, he comes down the stairs and follows me into my room. He asks "Why are you doing homework this late?". I don't really answer his question I think (at least I can't remember).
      I look at him and I see a silver watch on his wrist (he doesn't have one IRL) with a glowing pale blue LED light on it. I ask about it and he tells me he just went out to buy it with my parents. As he raises his wrist to show it, it becomes a ring around his thumb similar to the ring an ex-girlfriend of mine used to wear. He shows that it isn't very easy to put it on and off his thumb and I think about my own ring (which I don't really have) and how mine is a lot easier to put on.

      2: I'm the chairman, oh no I'm not

      I am going to university because there's supposedly an event from my study association. It's raining like hell and the world is dark and grey and gloomy. As I arrive I look at my watch and see that I have only three minutes left. Then I remember I am the new chairman of the association and I stress out a little because I have no idea what I should say to the other members in my speech. I run into J, an old friend, and he greets me. I stop for a moment but cut him off when he wants to start a conversation and say "I'm the new chairman so I should hurry. Oh no, no, I'm not the chairman, just the financial administrator!". Neither of these things are actually true IRL.
      Next I run into someone who I recognize as someone in charge of the association. Another member is there as well. We are supposed to run some sort of obstacle course which involves running and jumping but also licking a plastic table. After running for 10 seconds the guy who's in charge tells us to stop because the weather is just too miserable. We walk past a building, and through the windows I can see some people who I think belong to a different association in a sauna, sweating their asses of and looking terribly unhappy. We all laugh at them.

      3. Revealed Recordings

      This dream is pretty vague. I'm in some camping-like area. I'm standing in front of a tent and there's a string spun in front of it with 6 large T-shirts hanging from it. The shirts are identical and all have the logo of Hardwell's music label Revealed Recordings on the front. I look at the sizes and I am surprised to see that even though they are all really large, they're all size Medium. My mother is there as well and all of it has to do with me starting my own company. In one instant I think to myself: "When the hell did I decide to start my own company? I have no time for this shit!" and then I just ignore it.

      There's also a fragment in which I am posting here on Dream Views and I read posts from some members and have some sort of discussion, but I was half-awake, half-asleep all the time and it was just a restless, frustrating experience.
    9. 05/03/16 - 06/03/16: Party at the Panama, sleeping in the shower

      by , 03-06-2016 at 08:30 PM
      Even though I had a long night of potential sleep I couldn't really sleep well after 7 hours of sleep or so, which really messed up my recall a bit. Still, there are some vague dreams, fragments and conversations I half-remember.

      Went to bed: 23:00
      Fell asleep: 23:30
      Awakening 1: 06:00
      Fell asleep: ?
      Multiple awakenings at random
      Final awakening: 09:30

      1: Party at the Panama

      It was late at night and I was in Amsterdam. I was standing in front of a nightclub called Panama (which I have been to a few times in real life). I was waiting for my friends N, R, S and J to come but I had no idea where they were. I decide to go inside.
      There's a fragment of a dark staircase that I walk up.
      I am now sitting at a long table. M is sitting across from me. A girl walks over to our table on the right side (far side for me) and sits down. Another girl walks over to the left end to the table, to which I am sitting close. I introduce myself to her as M, my friend, for some reason. I start laughing and say: "Oh no shit that's not my name, I'm Eddie! (not gonna share my real name here) M is the name of my friend over there!" while pointing at him. M doesn't really respond.

      2: Sleeping in the shower

      I am lying on the floor in a changing room, halfway into the shower area, in my sleeping bag. Next to me lies R, a friend of mine, also in his sleeping bag. There are many people in the room, some of which I know and some of which are barely or not clothed (no details on the Internet about this ). A girl steps over me into the showers. I am just completely confused about everything in this dream, but I don't think about dreaming for a second.

      There are some more images and things I remember but they are too small and vague to put into words.
    10. 04/03/16 - 05/03/16: My father is a recall master

      by , 03-05-2016 at 07:40 PM
      First I had some end-of-the-week drinks with my study association at my university, and then I went to my hometown to have drinks at a local bar with my friends, as I do every friday. I expected nothing at all from this night because of the alcohol (no overly excessive amounts, but being tipsy already ruins recall completely for me) but I actually managed to get one fragment this morning.

      Went to bed: 02:30
      Final awakening: 07:15

      I'm having breakfast with my family and remember I haven't yet told my father about my amazing recall from 2 days ago. I say "you know one night this week I remember 7 dreams!", expecting him to be at least a little surprised or impressed. Instead, he looks at me nonchalantly and with a little arrogance. Then he said "well I once remember 35 dreams in a night". Afterwards he looked really proud, especially when I was just speechless.
    11. 03/03/16 - 04/03/16: I am a crocodile

      by , 03-05-2016 at 07:16 PM
      So tonight was similar to last night. I recall at least 3 dreams (it isn't very clear what belongs to one dream or is a different dream) but only short fragments of them.

      Went to bed: 22:00
      Fell asleep: 22:30
      Awakening 1: ?
      Fell asleep: ?
      Final awakening: 5:50

      Techniques used: water method for natural awakening.

      1: Apricot marmelade

      Not much recalled, but I was sitting at the table in the living room having breakfast when my mother told me the apricot marmelade I was about to put on my slice of bread is carcinogenic (WTF!?). I immediately put it back, but then she says it might just be the lid.

      2: N''s pictures, T in the gym

      N from college is showing me pictures she has taken recently. There are some beautiful sceneries, sunsets and then something from an indoor zoo. As soon as she shows me the zoo picture I am 'teleported' to the location in the picture. I walk around the place and it is not really a zoo, at the time I knew what it was and what I was doing but I cannot recall it. I had special privileges, being able to go through doors normal people couldn't go through.

      At one point I go into a room and it turns out to be a gym, with 5 rows of weight training machines. In the middle of the third row I see T on a machine. I'm only mildly surprised to see him, even though he never goes to a gym IRL and I haven't seen him for like 6 months. I greet him, say something like 'hey, it's been a while!' and that's it.

      3: I am a crocodile\

      This is, hands down, the weirdest dream I've ever had. I am a crocodile, lying in the sea, about a mile from the coast. I can see the shore, and there are a few buildings there. Suddenly it all explodes, multiple mushroom clouds arise and everything is burning. I turn away from the shore for a while and see the most stunning sunset I've seen in my life. It was just mesmerizing. I relaxed completely and thought to myself: "I could just relax here and drown in peace now". Then I started thinking about whether I should try to swim to shore. I'm afraid to get mutated by the radiation from the bombs, but after some thinking I decide to go anyway. As I start swimming I turn into a human again (I see my arms while swimming) but I still feel/think I am a crocodile/don't realize I am human. As I swim I wake up.
    12. 02/03/16 - 03/03/16: 7 f'ing dreams!

      by , 03-03-2016 at 08:51 PM
      Alright I'm actually really excited about this. I've never had such good recall even though the dreams were all really short, it was really amazing to remember so many different things. They had a particular order but I didn't write down my tags in that order so I don't remember it now.

      Special methods: water method

      Went to bed: 22:00
      Fell asleep: 22:15
      Awakening 1: 04:00 (I think, not sure)
      Fell asleep: 04:01
      Awakening 2: 5:50
      Fell asleep: 6:00
      Final awakening: 7:15

      1: Blue Mediterranean

      I was at the (supposedly) Mediterranean coast (probably Spain) with a girl. The water was bluer than any water I've ever come across in Europe, it looked more like Curaçao waters or something. As I walked to the shoreline, I looked over my shoulder and it wasn't a girl anymore, instead my parents and siblings were there (huge disappointment ).

      2: Flirting with R

      So I was in a classroom like one from high school but the people in there were from college. I was sitting at the back of the room when I caught R's eyes. She looks absolutely stunning, as always, while smiling at me. After another one of those looks I walk over to her (she was sitting in the front). As I sit next to her, she looks at me intensely and grabs my arm. Then she starts talking some nonsense about how we made eye contact and for some reason she was really intrigued by that.

      Animation show with a girl doing shrooms

      This must be one of my weirdest dreams ever. I'm watching some kind of animated tv show. Even though I realize I am merely a spectator in the story, I am completely immersed in it. It starts out with this girl who can't be older than 15 who takes mushrooms in her bedroom. Then she starts going completely mental, throwing things around her room, smashing her television to bits and pieces and dancing on the table. Then she is suddenly outside and she is wearing some silly costume (I don't remember what) and she is dancing on her parents' car. Then, her parents come home. They see her acting like that and don't really know what do to. Then she changes into a robot costume suddenly and dances in front of her parents. I remember thinking something like "oohhh how stupid can you be!?". Then her parents do get angry and drag her inside.

      Watching tv with my parents and an amazing song

      So now I'm sitting on the couch at home with my parents. We're watching tv and the show is about a girl on some climbing/playing equipment for children. My dad comments that he finds the show extremely stupid and useless with a very annoyed tone. Then the show appears to end and as the credits start rolling a song starts playing as well. The title of the song is displayed but I can only remember the name "Vince". In the lyrics he sang something about 2001 and then 2003 and the song was really beautiful. Upon waking I could remember the melody, but I forgot it during the day (I wouldn't have been able to put it in writing anyway).

      Lastly there were two fragments. In the first I was doing dishes with 3 other people. They had already started and I wanted to help but it took me some time to figure out what I could do. I ended up rinsing the dishes before the next person washed them. The third would then dry and the fourth would put it away.

      From the other fragment I only recall a single image of a girl (I do remember I felt amazing about her) standing on a platform that was attached to the outside of a moving train in which I was sitting.
    13. 27/02/16 - 28/02/16: supermarket, old colleagues, bananas.

      by , 02-28-2016 at 11:14 AM
      So, tonight I had a long night of sleep and I hoped to have a nice amount of dreams to write down here. Unfortunately, I do not remember much; only one fragment. I realise now that the moment of waking up is far more important than the amount of sleep I get for my recall. I am going to plan my wakings a little better by setting alarms.

      I'm walking in the supermarket in my hometown, where I used to work. I see B, one of my old colleagues, but he doesn't appear to recognise me even though I greet him. Then, I also see W and C, who are also old colleagues, and WJ is carrying crates with 3 large round pieces of fruit (the size of coconuts, but looking soft and greenish).

      Supposedly as a joke he lets the crates topple over, trying to drop the pieces of fruit on me. It fails miserably and everything just falls on the ground. I say something like "Nice try, C. Uhm, I mean W." They both laugh a little but ignore me mostly. I walk towards some kind of desk and buy 3 bananas. Somehow, they are flat on one side, but apart from that, they look like high quality, perfectly ripe bananas.

      In the dream, I wonder how I paid for these and try to recall doing so, but I can't and decide to ignore it. I walk into a small cubicle where someone I don't know is sitting on a chair. It is a middle aged, dark skinned man with a thick Surinam accent, who actually (when I think of it now) resembles the father of a friend of mine whom I've only seen once or twice. He hands me a weird, thick banana with a lot of brown spots on it. He looks jealously at the bananas I bought and says something indicating they are really expensive and high quality. I tell him I don't need the one he handed me and hand it back clumsily, almost dropping the ones I bought.

      I then proceed to walk out of the supermarket, and the exit looks like the exit of my new job. To my left is a room that looks exactly like the office from my new job, but it is completely empty (no furniture). Inside is just a motorized scooter and M is standing next to it. I am not surprised to see her there.
      Then I wake up.
