    Building of the pyramids / Dream Journals are important

    So here's a tip:
    If you ever find yourself with no time to lucid dream, do NOT stop updating your dream journal. :/
    I stopped updating mine for a few weeks, and when I tried to LD again I noticed my dream recall was nearly nonexistent.
    It took me the past two weeks to have a moderately long lucid, and going through this after having had sort of regular lucids is quite a frustrating experience.
    So yeah, dream journals seem to be quite a bit more important than I thought.
    Anyways, enough rambling.


    I'm taking a bath. The water is very soapy and I'm sort of lost in thoughts.
    Somehow I feel that it is weird that I have a bathtub, I used to have only a shower.
    But I make up some excuse to justify the presence of the tub and continue idling.
    I think about a girl I met a few days ago for some reason, and suddenly I notice that someone is with me in the bathtub.
    There's a naked girl right in front of me, though not the one I was thinking of, I don't know her.

    I don't really realize that this situation is weird, I even sort of ignore the girl until I feel the urge to touch her arm because I have the impression that it's supposed to feel weird.
    I touch her arm and gently brush over it with a finger, and I notice that it feels extremely realistic even though it shouldn't.

    Wait... why is it supposed to... oh!
    Am I dreaming?
    I look at the girl, whom is smiling at me and she proceeds to vanish into thin air.

    I am now certain that I am dreaming, but I feel the urge to RC, I feel like I need the shock of awareness.

    As I do the nose pinch RC I remember that I haven't RC'ed like this in a long time.
    Usually I just become aware that I am dreaming, or I realize inconsistencies as to how I ended up where I am.
    I think I stopped doing 'standard' RC's after WakingNomad had suggested other forms of increasing awareness on these forums.

    The RC succeeds and I get quite excited that I finally induced an LD again, and I immediately feel the urge to do something with the limited time that is given to me.
    I jump out of the tub ready to search my house for anything exciting.

    Stop! What am I doing?
    I haven't stabilized the dream, I'm running around aimlessly, this is bad!
    I try to calm down and attempt to stabilize the dream.
    That was close, my surroundings had already darkened quite a bit.

    I try to open a portal on a wall. I have no destination in mind, I have no goals and just seem to do the first thing that crosses my mind.
    As I walk through it I wonder why I've bothered with a portal when I can just teleport with my wings, plus I'm assuming the portal won't work
    because I haven't set a destination... but it does!

    I find myself in the desert, on a sand dune.
    This is odd, usually my dreams are dominated by cold colors and watery landscapes.
    This is pretty much the exact opposite.
    I see some construction work going on and approach it.
    As I look at my surroundings, I realize that I must be in the past, considering what people are wearing and the kinds of buildings that exist.

    This place seems oddly familiar though... and then I finally get it.
    They're building the pyramids! I'm in Egypt!
    Of course! I've been here before in waking life, how interesting!

    "It is, isn't it?"
    "Yeah..."

    Huh? It's the girl from the bathtub again, except she's dressed now.
    She's wearing some sort of white gown and her hair is braided.

    "You're the girl from before!"
    "Yeeees... ?"
    "Do I know you?"
    "... are you fucking serious?"
    "Err... oh! Faye?"
    "Yes Faye! Dude!"
    "I'm sorry... haven't had a lucid in a while, I feel like I've forgotten everything"
    "You'll be fine."
    "Yeah this is good, if I remember this dream it'll boost my confidence."
    "Good good, time to wake up now."
    "Huh, why?"
    "Your phone is ringing"


    I wake up and sure enough, my mobile is ringing.

      It's so true about the dream journals--I haven't been journaling much lately and my recall is pretty much crap...I miss my lengthy lucid adventures! Gotta try to get my recall back up to par.

      Cool dream! Glad you're journaling again!

      Yeah, it's very frustrating if you try to LD but it doesn't work, and you know exactly that it's your own fault for not keeping up with your DJ. :/
      Good luck with fixing your recall!
