    1. Swimming and flying in the void - night of 7/14/24

      Flying in the void (WILD)
      Transitioning into the dream state felt extremely satisfying this time around, usually there's resistance or other strange sensations but this felt right.
      I was in the void flying around to different points. I saw a grid of blue dots appear in front of me, I flew closer to one of them to examen it. The closer I got the further away the other dots became, but the size of the dot I was moving towards remained the same size as it was when I was further away. I fly away from them and move towards some pink lights trying to imagine them being something, "I get a bit bored. In order to get any tasks done I have to be somewhere." I think.
      "To my room!" Instantly I feel my body in my bed and I'm in my dimly lit room, "I'm still dreaming" I think as I stand up and take several steps, I begin to feel a repelling force that sends me straight back to the void with the colors again and wake up shortly after.


      Swimming in the void (WILD)
      As typical from doing WILD for me, I entered the void in this dream.
      As I enter the dream I think to myself, "Why fly?" From head to toe I start doing a sort of wave motion like a fish swimming. I zoom out to look at myself and through the darkness of the void I can make myself out as an even darker shadow, I look just like a free diver.
      I bring it back in and look around, I see colors and lights in the distance and swim towards them. The closer I get to the light the louder and more clearly I hear a woman singing in a language I don't recognize. "It's probably gibberish." I think to myself as I'm trying to understand her. The last thing I remember her saying was "China man." All of the lights and colors in the void start becoming more intense and begin transforming.
      Now I'm in a pitch-black room with a huge high window and two large metal supports crossing it in the center. Outside the window I can see snowflakes and a soft blue light entering the room that illuminates about 50 penguin toys that are hanging from strings on the ceiling.



      I fly upwards to get a better look outside , I see that one of the support bars is impaling a speed limit sign at the base that reads "SPEED LIMIT 24". Everything goes black for a second before lighting back up again.
      Now I'm outside of the room on a balcony and there's a thick layer of snow everywhere. I think of doing my first of three tasks, banishing something, and look off the edge. There're a few dumpsters on the ground outside and I say "Disappear!" while closing my fist and looking at one of them.
      It doesn't go away instantly, instead I have to look to the left then back at it for it to work.
      I start thinking of what else I can do, and I turn around to try and find a pencil to draw a stick man with. The dream begins fading away as I'm walking, I start clapping my hands and I can even feel the slight sting from it. It brings the dream back and I continue walking and spinning around to try and keep it going for longer. Once I enter a hallway the dream disappears for good, and I wake up.

    2. Locking the gates into missing car adventure (LD)

      by , 07-11-2024 at 02:52 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      **for clarification the below is a dream, I don't own a new property or house.**
      I'm in a newly acquired home and I go outside to lock the main gate. I own a huge yard and I look outside the gate and see a mother with two children. I attempt to lock the gate, but the lock is broken. I go inside to retrieve a new lock and when I go outside, I only see the mother now, thinking the kids could have walked into the property I decide to leave the gate unlocked to avoid problems. I go back inside and want to become lucid, so I lay down and close my eyes.

      I'm in the void floating around and the only thing I want to do is drive my car somewhere strange. "I want to find my car!" I shout into the void. Instantly the dream world begins to materialize and I'm in an unknown house. I have a normal dream body and decide to open the door to walk outside, the outside world bursts to life. I hear a really catchy retro video game music playing, it's nighttime but the streets and building are lit up with the orange shine of the streetlamps, there's probably 100 people walking around the sidewalks and cars everywhere.



      I see a waypoint and I know it's telling me my car is there somehow. I follow it around the corner of the parking lot and find a floating empty white dotted outside of where my car should be. A mysterious jingle straight out of a detective show plays and I see in my upper vision a quest appears with the text. "Find your missing car."



      At this point I'm in disbelief of how alive everything is, and I never imagined this scene playing out like this. I just wanted to get in my car and drive somewhere...I turn around and just take in the scene.

      I watch one car turning the corner and as if a glitch or hitting a speed bump the car flies into the air for a moment. The driver inside goes limp and dies from the bounce. "Well, I found my car!" I cross the street and just as I'm about to enter it two people come bursting out of the adjacent building. One is my boss, and the other is an owner of a company I know of. "Jeremy!" he demands my attention.

      "Yes?"

      "Do you have the prints to c4?"
      (c4 referring to section c on the 4th floor of the building he just exited)

      I've never seen this building before, and I don't even have a phone on me. I look in my hand and I'm holding a phone now.

      "I don't have them." I tell him and he looks disgusted.

      "Does my breath smell bad?" I cover my mouth. I catch myself drifting off and decide this isn't worth it so I turn back to the truck and to dismiss them I say out loud "I quit" When I turn back, they're both gone, I get into the car and start driving. There's some construction material in the way of the car but I don't care and just drive straightforward.

      After driving for a bit my mind begins wandering and I catch myself losing lucidity once again but it's too late, the dream visuals have now frozen, and I can't make anything out and I wake up.

      **I've been trying to direct my dreams and walking outside and driving was a scene I played out in my head a few times so i was really caught off guard when the dream turned into what it did.

    3. Isaac's escape and forest recon

      by , 07-08-2024 at 02:16 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      Escape Mom's House

      I was playing a game where the main character was the Isaac from The Binding of Isaac. I found myself walking around a building going from room to room. The game was more of a 2D platformer like Mario rather than The Binding of Isaac.

      I found a hole in front of me and sort of just walked into it on accident. I thought I died, but then the screen scrolled down revealing that there was a floor below me that I could now explore. I eventually found a way out and when I exited the home the game changed to 3D. I could now see Isaac desperately running on all fours to get away as fast as he could.

      *Thinking back I don't know why I thought I died, in The Binding of Isaac that's how you go from level to level.*

      Forest Recon

      *This felt like one of those dreams that was close to being lucid but just ended up being extremely vivid and fun instead.*

      I was with a group of soldiers in the forest. We spotted in the distance a large group of enemies and we were now at a standstill. We both knew each other were here and the only option now was to wait for something to happen.

      Taking initiative I climbed up a tree and began throwing myself from tree to tree like an ape. I was swinging at high speeds to get behind the enemies for intel. A hill, probably about 100 feet tall, stood in front of me. To get around, I had to climb it. So, I did.

      When I reached the top I found what appeared to be a wooden deck. I started walking down the wooden path when I discovered that it was connected to a trail. There were a lot of people walking it so I tried to play it cool, like I was always just around the corner enjoying the view and didn't climb the 100-foot drop. No one suspected me and I walked the trail long enough to finally find the enemies.

      *Beyond this point I don't remember too much.*

      I found one of my brothers with the enemies asking me to fix something for them. I was guessing the distance for a measurement saying something about it being 35 feet.
    4. Unknown Weapon

      by , 05-04-2024 at 01:07 PM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      Me and a group of 5 people were trying to escape some sort of underground bunker. It was dark and there were two ladders that led upward, one closer and one much further away.
      The one closer to us had a camera next to it and a trap door under it. One of the people in the group approached the ladder and went up a few steps. "What is the weapon that causes disassociation?" the camera spoke. "A flame thrower?" the person on that ladder answered. A red light turned on and the trap door opened up, sucking him down. "Wrong!" The next person gave a similar wrong answer and got sucked down as well, leaving only 3 of us left.
      One of the members decided to make a run for the ladder on the far end, I followed. We climbed up the ladder and opened the hatch revealing daylight. Unfortunately, we were still trapped. It led to a room with iron bars at every wall. The person giving the test was visible. "What's the answer!?" the guy I followed asked. "There is no answer, it's what you make of it." he said with a smile on his face. We climbed back down and made our way back to the other guy that was still in line for the ladder, I started thinking to myself about how isolation could be the answer. "Isolation causes disassociation." The guy in front of me heard what I said and climbed the ladder. "What is the weapon that causes disassociation?" the test giver asked again. "Isolation!" the guy said, stealing my answer. A green light lit up and the hatch above opened allowing him out. "I shouldn't have said that out loud, I have to think of a new one now." I began thinking "maybe apathy and fear?" I climbed the ladder, and he asked the question again. "Apathy and..." I was answering as he interrupted me. "Hold your phone up to the camera."
      I pulled my phone out and it had a circular spinning loading screen with other intricate details that somehow identified me. I hold the screen to the camera but it's having a hard time registering because the ladder I'm on is swinging back and forth in an unpredictable manner. I countered the swinging motion with my arm, sort of like a chicken's head when you pick it up and move it around. A sound played that told me it was successful. He then gave me a complicated set of instructions that I couldn't understand. All I knew is that he wanted me to open up a certain app and find something he made to hold up to the camera. I opened the app he made. I see a snake with a metal shiny black and red patterned skin, the texture and colors of the snake was moving from tail to head. "Cool." I thought as I continued trying to find what he wanted. I started clicking around and an isometric game opened up. I kept clicking around and before I knew it there were around 10 layers of different screens opened up on the app. I was having difficulty navigating the app. I remember seeing another image of something with a metallic texture moving across the centered object.

      Note: Strange long dream, there's details of how we got trapped that I can't seem to remember. The day before this I was thinking about how feeling emotions is sort of like disassociating from them, and when you feed into them, it only strengthens them.

    5. Exploration (LD)

      by , 05-02-2024 at 12:11 PM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      WILD sp

      I'm in bed and I notice something off. I open my eyes and see the distorted version of my room again; I can't move. I decide I don't want to explore directly out of SP because it tends to be very unstable. I close my eyes and begin playing a made-up song on the air guitar, paying the intense sensations no mind at all.

      DILD nose pinch

      I wake up in my parents' house and I'm now walking around. I attempt the nose pinch RC and I can still breathe through it. "Weird." I think as I continue walking around looking at the house. I do around two more nose pinch RCs and still don't realize I'm dreaming. I'm trying to reason with myself why it's not working. "I'm just not pinching hard enough." The 4th nose pinch I try to make sure that my fingers are actually closing my nose all the way and I'm pinching extra hard. I can still breathe.
      "This is a dream?" I think to myself. The house I'm walking around in looks identical to the one I grew up in. Everything starts to fade.
      I begin spinning. I notice the hallway leading to the bedrooms, then the living room, back to the kitchen. "Wow, I never thought it could be this real." I span a couple more times in awe about how everything was exactly where it should be.
      I get a bit excited and go down the hallway leading to the bedrooms. I throw open a door to see my brother J3. I turn the light on and that wakes him up, he looks kind of annoyed. "Don't worry J3, this is a dream!" He smiles and starts walking to me "Oh yeah?" He gives me a huge bear hug, picking me up. once he sets me back down, he tells me to follow him. He's walking down the hallway back to the kitchen when the dream fades completely to a brown/tan static, I think to myself I want to spin to stabilize but there's nothing to see, I must be waking up.


      Waking?

      I'm in bed again and my limbs feel weird, I think I'm awake and try the nose pinch, it works but I still feel off. I lick my finger and start tapping my nose. It all feels more or less how I would expect it to feel minus the strange vibrations. So, I close my eyes.

      Cat outside


      I wake up in my apartment to see my cat outside the window. *I've had the windows open because the AC isn't working* I run over and try to help her when I realize it's a random cat outside and it's trying to get inside the apartment. I'm not really sure what to do and I'm just watching the cat. Eventually the window screen comes loose, and the cat jumps inside, landing on the windowsill. My cat runs up to look at it and I get a bit worried and shoo the cat back outside. I close the window fully. The cat sees that and now has a human like scowl on its face, I find that hilarious and try to call for my brother J1 to come and look.

      I wake up.

      Note: Finally completed my goal of exploring a "real place" I really didn't want to believe I was dreaming because of how real it was, not just the house but my body as well.
    6. fist bump (LD)

      by , 04-30-2024 at 12:23 PM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      DILD

      I'm sitting down in my parents bed, just relaxing looking at a ceiling fan. I have an extreme sense of calm and control. "What if I'm dreaming?"
      I begin floating up to the ceiling confirming that I am. I land back down to the ground and begin walking to the door. I reach to grab the door nob but missed and couldn't open. "what if I can't open the door?" I dismiss the thought and succeed with two hands. I notice that my arms and hands look brighter than they should be considering how dark the room and living room are.
      I see my brother J2 and Dad watching TV. "If I act positive I will get positivity." I think to myself shaking off a sliver of fear. I begin walking towards J2. "What's up bro!?" I kind of sounded like pewdiepie. "Huh?" he seems confused. "Fist bump!" I say as I hold my fist out. He meets it with his own fist as
      I wake up.

    7. The Blanket Dimention (LD)-night of 4/20/24

      by , 04-22-2024 at 02:19 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      The first thing I remembered was my mom offering me a vegan beef jerky stick. I accepted her offer and took a bite. It was very tasty and juicy. After taking a few more bites, I noticed that there was a green slime all over it. I began scratching it off and thought to look where she grabbed it from. It was next to a window AC unit and there was slime and mold all over the other jerky sticks.



      Starting to get nervous, I searched google on my phone what would happen if you ate slime mold.

      • You will experience extremely vivid lucid dreams.
      • If more than a drop is ingested, you will die."



      "Oh no" I thought as I start pacing around and as my vision begins to fade, I feel extremely tired and find a place to fall over. I hear my mom say something about needing to keep me awake so I don't die.
      Everything is black and I can sense my body free floating in the void. "I ate a lot more than one drop, I guess this is the end of me." I accepted my fate.


      "Wait, that was a dream, I didn't eat any mold." glad to be alive I began flying upward into the void, seeing different images of worlds and places as I flew. What solidified was a world where the ground, walls, and sky were made up of an enormous blanket.



      "Time to skydive teleport"
      *This is a task I made up where I look at an object on the ground that has similar color to a place I want to teleport to. I dive into it and imagine that I'm actually skydiving into the place I want to go to.*

      I see a tan rectangle in the blanket and attempt to visit a desert, instead of shrinking down and skydiving like I wanted, I'm just moving downward, and the blanket is being pushed down with me. I start swinging my arms around feeling the blanket as I look up and attempt to speak to my subconscious mind. "You and me are going to have a lot of fun together!" I began flying back up. "Could you create a dream character that represents you?" I plead. "Okay." A very quiet and meek sounding voice responded. "Did you agree to do it?" Not sure if I actually heard anything or not. "Yes!" it responded a bit louder but just as meek. I look around and see a huge muscular black guy. He starts rapping.
      "Some people think they're all that, but they only good in the hood."


      I lose lucidity at some point listening to him. I can't remember the rest of the rap, it was very good though. It had to do with people who think they're really good because the people around them are bad.
      I wake up.

    8. Limb Manipulation, Minecraft (LD)-Night of 4/14/24

      by , 04-16-2024 at 02:52 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      Cyborg Hunt

      A couple of scientists were really sad when they found their cyborg was dead. After scanning it they, thought the "living" parts were counterfeit. Meaning that the alive half of the cyborg escaped. The DNA was very important to them. Eventually they found the living part and shrunk down to the size of cells. They were surfing on a glowing blue metal thing hitting corrupt parts of the flesh with a rod. The rod triggered an immune response and the surrounding tissue stretched out, forming tendrils that attacked the spots.


      Limb Manipulation

      I hear my brother call for my sister "J, come!" I'm facing a wall I know I didn't fall asleep looking at. "Ah I'm dreaming." I begin closing my eyes and twitching my fingers for a reality check, as I open my eyes, I'm floating in-between many false awakenings. I begin rubbing my hands together until eventually I stabilize in a void. It's different than normal though, it's hard to explain but it had depth to it. When I started flying up, I could sense that I was traveling through a three-dimensional area if that makes sense. "Minecraft, I want to visit Minecraft. What does Minecraft look like?" I began thinking to myself.

      Then all around me I began to see the World forming, bright, vibrant and blocky. "Time to experiment" I thought while bringing my hand up to block my left eye. Just like IWL I saw double, there was a transparent section followed by a solid more defined section of my hand. Satisfied by the results I brought my hand back down. The only thing was that only the solid portion of my hand was in my control. The translucent portion stayed behind and solidified as a large object next to the tree's that were in the background. "Maybe I can use this."



      I start heading in a random direction. "Cursed arm summoning." I imagine my arm reaching through the ground in front of me. I see it reach out and I can control it like my normal arm.



      I continue walking summoning more arms under my control. Spontaneously, I decide to try grabbing things with the arms and pulling as a way to boost me forward faster, it fails.

      "I can try to summon a husk for possession at this rate" I look at a distant mountain for the husk and find it. The arms are reaching out of the ground and it's pulling itself upward. It's now just standing still, it resembles an armor stand with missing textures. "A perfect blank canvas."



      I think about possessing it, then my body begins moving in 4 quick forward zooms, as soon as I'm about 20 feet away I finally fully possess it. I turn around to see the husk I left behind, it's now running straight at me. I hold my hand Infront of me and dismiss it into the abyss below, it falls.

      I start looking around the top of the mountain and hear a Girl talking.

      "You wouldn't believe how much a chunk with a Lemon and Apple tree cost me, zero!"

      "This is my chance to talk to a DC," I started thinking to myself about what I should say or even how I should talk. "Just say something, idiot." I focused.

      "Oh my dear, that must have been expensive!" My words came out delayed, and I noticed I sounded extremely posh and had a British accent.

      "Didn't you hear me?" she questioned. "It cost zero!"

      "Oh well, I seem to have misheard what you said. That's fantastic!"

      "It's simply horrible! On top of that, I have to live next to the river where I can go boating anytime as well!"

      "Now, now, don't want to get too exuberant about the river now, shall we?" I quipped, breaking a few blocks in the chunk as we spoke. The sarcasm was nice, and she seemed to be happy.
      I saw some artwork hidden in the blocks I was breaking.

      I wake up.

      The day before this dream I was car-pooling with my family to my sister's 40th birthday in Dallas, it was a 4 hour drive and I was using active imagination for some spells I could cast in a dream.
      I thought my spells could link to something I already know how to control, like my arm moving I thought. So I came up with a few spells. Here are two.

      Cursed Arm Summon:
      Summons an arm out of the ground that I can control. The arm can be grabbing an object as it comes out, such as a sign or tree and use it to swing around.

      Cursed Husk Summon: First summon the arm, then imagine it's pulling it's self out of the ground fully. The idea is have it do something that you want, or possess it for short range teleportation. It's important that the summoned arm is under your control. *My brother suggested that possessing a husk should leave a body behind, and it would attack me.*

      I basically had around 8 hours of active visualization imagining what it would look like.

      Besides that I wanted to try and put my hand in front of my left eye to see what would happen in a dream.

      Just open your eyes WILD
      I'm in the void as I enter the dream, I start flying upwards and let myself drop and begin falling, I decide that I'm just going to open my eyes.
      Like the last time I tried opening my eyes in the void I see that I'm in bed unable to move, but instead of closing my eyes and trying to wake up I imagine moving, it works. I begin rubbing my hands together to gain some stability but fail. I'm now stumbling through a dark distorted version of my room again there are lots of burst of ringing, I attempt the nose pinch RC and I have no hands, good enough. I see some rags or paper on the ground and remember my first three step task and banish them. They just blink away revealing the floor.

      I wake up

      Note: I'm not sure if this is me turning SP into a dream, a false awaking, or something else.

      *Need to go to sleep earlier, I could sense if I laid in bed longer I would have a lucid but sadly I have to work!*


      J and I were in a Walmart trying to buy some bread that was on a quick spinning display. It was frustrating because every time we tried to grab it other products would get knocked over. The time window to grab it was less than a second.

      We ended up getting frustrated and decided we needed revenge by robbing the store of random stuff. we started making an escape when we realized we didn't have a car. We stole a really old, rusted metal bodied car and took off.

      J was driving and I was somewhere in the back feeling a hole in the vehicles exhaust, it was blasting air out and was sparking.

      Some time passed and the police caught up to us, pulling us over. As J pulled over, he got out and ran to the back of the vehicle "Watch out a snake!" he pushed a stolen inflatable snake that was hanging out of the trunk and slammed it shut, hiding the stolen goods. "We need to search your vehicle!" demanded the officer. "Show me a search warrant first!" J retorted. The officer looked annoyed and told us to stay put as he walked back to his car.
      We knew we were in trouble so we booked it while he wasn't looking. We got pretty far away and found a large wall camouflaged like the surrounding area, it had a door we decided to go through.



      I wake up.

      I slept pretty well.
      All of my LDs thus far have been through WILD.

      Although I am able to get LDs fairly easily I'm still relatively new when it comes to lucid dreaming, before the contest I just let myself naturally have them when I could "sense" I was able to have one.

      I have this fearful feeling like "wow, I'm going to lose my mind." But I know I'm not losing my mind, I'm just becoming aware of it and feeling afraid.

      Uncontrolled Drifting: WILD
      I'm drifting through this building. Floating up through the ceiling from one floor to another. I'm rubbing my hands together in an attempt to stabilize and gain control. The dream clarifies a bit but when I go to land back on the floor I just phase right through it to the floor below.

      *I wake up and remain still*

      School to Minecraft: WILD

      *Before I enter this dream, I'm telling myself I want to visit school.*

      I enter a school; the hallways are long and dimly lit. Everything is stable and I'm able to walk around for a while. I'm not really trying to do anything, and I get bored.

      I begin to fly at high speeds into the wall. I phase through it an now I'm in Minecraft and everything is bright. I remember my last three step task, Mass telekinesis, I see about 10 mobs and beckon them, they begin floating. I continue flying beckoning every mob I see, causing them to float and follow me. I see a hallway leading into the school I was just in and turn around to see them still following me like balloons and dismissively gesture the mobs.

      I turn back and land in the hallway, back to reality, I see someone and begin chasing them, it felt natural for some reason, they begin running away from me. I see them turn a corner and open a door, I jump into the air and attempt to stop them from closing the door by slowing down time, unfortunately that slows me down too. The door closes and I'm now frozen in time. I look around and see a monitor about 20 feet away, it has Minecraft on the screen, I'm able to control and play it from a distance. I stop after about 3 seconds though as I feel the dream ending.

      "Don't be fooled by a false awakening I remember last time"


      False Awakening?

      My eyes open and I can sense I'm not actually awake. Attempting to move my arms fails. "Sleep paralysis?" I've already decided the next time this happens I'm not going to close my eyes. Everything is very dark, moving like normal doesn't work so I imagine getting up and walking. It works, it doesn't feel like walking though, it feels like I'm just seeing through the eyes of someone I told to walk, it's very slow and takes a lot of will power to move.
      I'm now standing and I'm fighting back fear. The room I'm in looks like a distorted version of my room. The door to the living room here is much further away then it should be and there's no bathroom door. Continuing my struggle I open the door and can actually hear the creaking. I see the TV already has YouTube on it.


      *I set an intention for this exact scene, the next time I wake up in my apartment I'm going to get up and watch YouTube on the TV*


      The living room looks very distorted, and everything is misplaced, movement feels more natural now, I go to sit down on the couch and read what's on the screen, "wok", "mill" and something else. It's just gibberish and I don't know how to play any videos.


      I wake up

      Note: I'm very close to completing my personal goals, I feel like I overcame my fear of retaining awareness after a false awakening, but I wouldn't consider this to be exploring a real place or watching YouTube.

      Also maybe I shouldn't chase helpless DCs if I want to talk to them.

      Sleep was good but I still feel a bit tired from the poor sleep from before, didn't attempt lucid dreaming for sake of sleep.
      My problem is I know how to get lucid but the way I get lucid needs to be refined.

      Hotel
      *This was a very long dream, all I can remember was seeing a toilet full of poop. :/*

      Fingers
      My ring and middle fingers were stuck together and they got separated somehow. From where they met there was now a red fleshy area left over, I could see three mirrored splinters on each finger.
      *a lot of stuff happened that I can't remember.*
      My injured fingers began glowing with blue sparkles as I walked in a dark area.

      Gaming
      I was playing an online game with C and B. We were under attack non-stop by a cross-dimensional bug, it was way too strong for us to be fighting at the level we were at, it would send us to different areas of the game we couldn't handle and eventually we all died. We decided to start a new game, but we had concerns about the bug. "Don't worry we won't be seeing it again" C said. Confused by his answer I asked him how he knew. "The bug was because I forgot to change my armor, last week there was a contest to see who could die in the stupidest way." he takes his satanic helmet off, it was contrasting his priest outfit.
      *the contrasting armor set was an easter egg that spawned the bug.*

      I feel like I'm sacrificing sleep for having lucid dreams, maybe I need to sleep earlier.

      Car Theft

      I was sitting outside my apartment when suddenly I guy ran up and broke into my car. I get up and start trying to walk towards him to confront him but I'm in crutches for some reason, so I can't get to him in time. "This ain't your car!" the thief said to me as I continued limping to him. "Is it?" He starts driving away when I see a huge black truck entering the apartment complex "Stop him!" I wave down the big truck gesturing at my stollen car. The huge truck drives right in front of the guy, blocking him from driving.

      Visions


      I felt myself enter the dream, I have no dream body, I saw a pixel art game in black and white, but the character you play as is a knight wearing neon rainbow colored armor. "I want to play Rainbow Knight!" I attempt to control the dream.

      The art of the game fades and now see that I'm in what appears to be some sort of party room, there's purple and yellow walls, I'm uncontrollably drifting through the room, I see a cartoon character with a football shaped head looking at me.

      I tunnel to a new scene.(I'm not in control of this or any tunneling throughout this dream)

      I'm now orbiting 1000 feet above a stadium; it has a huge swinging spotlight that points from one end to the other.

      I tunnel to about 2 more scenes, I can't remember what was in them because they were so fast. It's like I'm a camera and as soon as there's a 3d render of a place I go to the next.

      As I'm in one of the scenes I think to myself. "Will this ever end?" a memory hits me, I asked myself that same question in a similar dream as a child.

      As I begin uncontrollably tunneling to a new scene I image putting my fist in the direction of the acceleration, pretending to be superman, then a white flash appears as I'm doing that, my whole vision is nothing but pure white. No more acceleration, no more imagination, just mild vibrations. I'm left with an eerie and confused feeling.
      It fades back to black and I begin tunneling again.

      This time I'm above a city in the dessert. It has tall beautiful skyscrapers.



      As I'm uncontrollably orbiting it like before, I notice that this scene is playing much longer than the previous ones. I attempt to look around and it works. I begin flying away into the dessert at high speeds. I find a hole in the ground and decide to dive into it.




      I wake up.

    14. Minecraft To False awakening-Night of 4/3/24

      I was too anxious from the FA to fall back asleep; I considered stopping lucid dreaming I was so disturbed. My terror and dreams are separate things however, they can happen at the same time but they're not causally related.
      I'm not going to stop because I was afraid!

      It's around 4:15
      While laying down relaxing I'm imagine myself walking in the dark. It starts to feel very real; I continue on and soon after each step I take gravity weakens until with a tap of the toe I'm sent into space. I float for a few seconds, "Well, why not visit Minecraft?" accepting the fact that I dream of it so often, I hear the sound effect of falling into a body of water.

      I still don't see anything so I imagine pressing a space bar on an imaginary keyboard so I can float up, just then I can see that I'm in a body of water. I make it to the surface and then float above the water. "What was my task?" it feels like the dream world is fading as I ask myself this question, I land then begin focusing on the tree's and notice some tall green Mario pipes with a 2d image of Kirby on them. Everything stabilizes.



      "Element control!" I turn back to the water and command, "Rise water, rise!!!" I bring my hands in-font palms facing up and raise my hands. A medium portion of the water is reacting but only lifts about six feet into the air, never disconnecting with the body of water.



      Satisfied I turn back to the Mario pipes and think about what else I can do, I phase through the Mario pipe to look inside, in the center of the pipe where the ground meets, I see another 2d image of Kirby.



      I fly back up in the air and circle the area just taking in everything. The dream begins to fade.


      *I think I wake up, I want to grab my phone after the lucid so I can record an audio file.*

      I sit up in bed and hear a swooshing sound and feel off, I reach for my blanket and when I grab it, I immediately notice that I can't actually feel anything. The blanket moved so realistically, I'm filled with a sense of terror, "Is my brain messed up?" "Am I awake but my body is asleep and that's why I can't feel anything?" I'm questioning my sanity at this point and simply decide to lay back down and close my eyes.

      I wake up.
      I should have known it was a false awakening and remained calm, the light was on, I heard strange sounds, I couldn't feel the blanket.
      This was my first time moving around while fully conscious in a false awakening and it really caught me off-guard.

    15. From the Void to Minecraft-Night of 4/2/24

      *I didn't wake up at 12 like normal, probably from the poor sleep yesterday, instead I woke up around 4 am and laid there for a while. I'm just trying to relax and imagine things. Soon they kind of take on a life of their own which tell me I'm ready to enter a dream.*

      *around 5:30am*

      Suddenly I'm in a void, I can fly in different directions. I try not to get too excited while flying and yet not too frustrated at the lack of visuals, I try to focus on what's already there. I see a purple blob and begin flying towards it, it transforms into a purple dragon as it flies away from me. I'm beginning to see where I am now, Minecraft again, it looks like I'm underground in spectator mode.

      what on your computer desk-underground.jpg

      Remembering one of my tasks I hold my hand in front of me to attempt summoning a huge ball. *This is something I've visualized while awake*

      what on your computer desk-summoning.jpg

      It's about the size of a small pebble, "It's too small" I think to myself as I toss it away and continue to fly up to the surface. Everything it's crystal clear now and looks just like Minecraft. I see a huge mountain and decide to fly straight through it, as I'm passing through it, it's like an image of the mountain just before I hit it is stuck in my vision for a second or two before I finally pass through it. I start looking around trying to not over fixate on that. I see two mountains and a village in the far distance. I start flying there looking at the ground and noticing my shadow. I start fading and wake up.
