    Lucid Dreams

    1. 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.
    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    6. Liminal lucid-night of 4/6/2024

      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.

      what on your computer desk-dimschool.jpg

      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.

      what on your computer desk-mass-telekenesis.jpg

      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.

      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.

      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.

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

      what on your computer desk-screenshot_20240403_061255_samsung-health.jpg what on your computer desk-screenshot_20240403_061303_samsung-health.jpg

      *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.

      -poor sleep, way too excited about lucid dreaming to fall back to sleep on time.
      -fell back asleep around 5am woke around 5:40am

      Fragment
      I was trying to pee at a urinal when someone walks right up the urinal next to mine and starts peeing, mind you this is a very small restroom and there's no dividers. After a few seconds of awkwardly standing there, I start to pee as-well.

      Fragment
      I see three brothers, one skinny, one skinnier, and one skinniest.
      Skinny pats skinnier on the back and says "I'm skinny all thanks to my bro!" Skinnier says the same thing to Skinniest and pats him on the back too.

      Weight Lifter
      There's a large exercise room where there's probably around 25 women and they just got done with an intense exercise. One of the women who completed the exercise no problem was approached by a slightly chubbier women who was struggling a bit. "You had such as easy time, you've been lifting since you were ten right?" The chubbier women asks. "You have no idea how hard it was! You've never tripped!" the fit women says as a cut scene plays showing her as a child tripping.
      *I think to myself, what does that have to do with anything?*

      Smooth Lucid *It's around 5:30am*
      I hear faint smooth jazz playing, I'm floating in a void, I'm lucid.
      Everything is black but attempting to control the music proves fruitful. I'm in full control of it, it's hard to explain but, I feel like I'm in total control of every beat of the drum, the saxophone, lyrics, guitar and other melodical instruments. It kind of sounded like smooth operator. I'm the most relaxed I've ever felt before, I wish I could float here forever. I spend about 2-5 minutes playing with the music and lyrics, which I can't remember because it was highly improvisational. I get a bit exited and start adding energy to the music, I decide it's time to start tunneling,
      *Tunneling is what I like to do to transition out of lingering voids, it involves me flying forward as fast as I can while imagining traveling through a worm hole to an unspecified location, I let my brain come up with where I end up*.
      I can feel my body accelerating extremely fast as lines begin to shoot past my vision.

      Suddenly I hear a cat meowing, It's Arthur begging for food. As I'm going down the tunnel I become aware of my body lying in bed and wake up.

      Note: I stopped letting my cats sleep with me and Arthur, the big baby, meows under the door constantly. Maybe that's why I had a hard time falling asleep. Time to wear ear plugs!

      I used wild to enter the dream.

      I felt my body floating as I transitioned into sleep, it felt like I was floating upward as visuals started to appear, it was Minecraft again. The terrain was unnatural and there were layers of floating land masses that were built using a single layer of dirt at various heights.

      There was an unrecognizable song playing as I was floating, I couldn't control the melody, but I was in control of the vocals. It was euphoric. "I will remain calm" I injected into the song's lyrics. I didn't want to wake up from excitement.

      I landed on one the highest floating blocks and began running forward, jumping to new blocks I looked down and could see my legs, they looked like my normal legs I noticed. I could feel my excitement growing as I continued running. I wanted to calm down a bit more, so I decided to turn around and see what was there.

      As soon as I did though, everything went black, and I could now feel body hallucinations as I became aware of my body. I opened my eyes and could see through my eyes as I was lying in bed and couldn't move, I thought this was a false awakening because the light was on in my room and I left it off, I was still disturbed because I couldn't move and closed my eyes again to finally wake up.


      Note: I need to stop derailing my dreams before they become grounded.

    12. Cats in the driver seat. LD

      by , 03-23-2024 at 02:57 AM (Book of Cursed Dreams)
      I woke up from a non lucid dream, all i remembered was i in my underwear fixing something for some reason. I could sense that i would be able to enter a lucid dream, remaining still I ignored the bursts of ringing and eventually my body begin to drift

      Visuals begin to appear as i remained drifting and floating, I was now in a large square corridor with a wooden roof and tacky wallpaper. Im close enough to the ceiling so i reach my hand to feel the roof, to my surprise my hand passed straight through it, like in vr. I then poked my head through the ceiling. It passed through as well, my head clipped through it and i could see through the ceiling as if looking through a texture out of bounds in a game. I lowered my head back down and continued to drift for a short time.

      The dream began to fade out and instead of worrying about it I imagined a song I like, focusing on the music made the dream stable again and i could now see the end of the corridor, it led to a dark outdoor parking lot.

      I was empowered with confidence as i floated outside. I descended to the ground and began strutting towards a car I saw moving.

      They stopped the car when I looked at them, I couldnt make out any figure driving as it was too dark.
      "Show me the dream navigator!" I gesture point and swinging my arm for them to get out of the car. No response, i pull the door open only to reveal my two cats in the driver seat. Amused and laughing I enter the car.

      They jump into the passenger seat and I reach over to close the door
      I see duplicates of my cats outside the car. As soon as i close the door the dream fades to black and i wake up.

      Note: the "dream navigator" is my attempt at making a Dream character who is aware of me dreaming and can tell me where to go or what to do. So far I'm unsuccessful.

    13. Lucid Minecraft to SP

      I entered the dream using WILD. With my eyes closed I began to feel a very comforting flowing and swooshing sensation over my whole body. I thought to myself it felt like I was drifting through water. Pixel art of a waterfall engulfed my vision and I immediately felt myself falling under water. Looking up I could see small land masses made up of cubes. "Oh boy another Minecraft dream..."

      I was still falling and sinking deeper in the water and I began to look up and down 3 times to confirm that the dream was stable. I willed myself to float upward, just below the surface of the water now looking directly at the underside of the blocks I imagined what it was like to walk on grass blocks and I just as I imagined, I floated up to the land and then onto the grass finally.

      I had to contain my excitement as I could see some wood logs, they were probably 4x the normal texture of Minecraft wood, the water was now gone leaving only land. "What if I just play normal Minecraft in my dream?" I began to mine the blocks, once the log brock the a image of the block replaced the one I broke, like a recursive screen shot every time I broke it, it got smaller. I still got the wood though. "Alright let's make a crafting table"

      I attempt to open my inventory but instead I opened the menu of the game and I could see some text about this being a mod-pack. "What am I even doing, playing Minecraft in a dream isn't even fun.." I began to fade and I could now sense my body, suddenly I felt swooshing body sensations along with a pressure in my chest. I imagined putting my finger in my mouth and it felt real, but when I opened my eyes, I could clearly see my hand wasn't there and I was staring at the wall I fell asleep looking at. I closed my eyes and let the sensations pass and woke.

      Note: anyone know how to make gifs work?
