    28 March - Dreams, Daydreams and FAs

    Finally, some time to catch up with the DJ here.
    No lucidity this time but I am including this because the dream - daydream confusion is somewhat important to me.

    O and a lake
    A dream about my friend O and a frozen lake. Trying to cross the like and worrying about the thickness of the ice.

    A&P
    My friends, A and P, have a bunch of rings, some are their wedding bands, some are other rings, we talk about them. There is a stone, blue and gold, with a labradorite-like effect, very heavy. I like that.
    In this dream, I think it is a daydream and not a dream. Later, I realize this was a dream.

    Grandmother
    I am with my grandmother, in her garden. There are some weeds. I am thinking about possible spaces for planting roses.
    I think this is a daydream and not a dream.
    Then we go inside and I log my previous dreams (O and a lake, A&P) in my DJ.
    For some reason, I don't wear any top. Some girl wants to see what I am writing but I tell her it was personal. But I show it to her anyway.


    Gravel road
    I am lying on a gravel road, trying to sleep. I decide there is no point in trying to sleep. I decide to log my dreams.
    Then I go down the road.

    And again, I think this is a daydream!
    There is a blanket and my husband and I sit next to him and think about my dreams. I remember I forgot my DJ up on the road but forgot it after a moment.
    Right next to us, there is a house and a door and I get inside with some female DC. It is a house of someone rich and important but they don't live there anymore and artificial intelligence is caring for the house. The girl DC let them to serve us and care for us. We are there for days or weeks
    (it doesn't feel like that but it the knowledge behind the dream).
    Then we are outside again and they catch us and someone is surprised by our behavior.
    I slowly wake up from this, struggling to believe it was a dream, but remembering that I already logged my dreams twice!



    And another one on 3rd April

    I am trying to VILD. I imagine drawing numbers and colouring them. Then I daydream about being an apprentice of a master of drawing. But it doesn't last long.
    I slip into a mi of short daydreams turning into dreams. I feel awake and aware of my surroundings but I don't realize that some daydreams fully turned into dreams.

    Sex
    I am in a room with some people/friends. I am wearing my nightie only. T touches my breasts under the nightie. I tell him that I don't mind him doing that but that I don't like not having control over it (basically, that I want it and he should continue but I don't like him not asking).
    I snap my fingers and all other people in the room disappear, it's just two of us.

    I love that. I think how cool it would be to have this skill in a real dream, but this doesn't count because it is only a daydream.
    Then we start kissing... and other things.



    Notes
    I don't know why I struggle with this. Maybe because I like to daydream and my morning daydreams with closed eyes can be vivid and look the same as dreams - at least to my half-asleep brain.
    About the differences:
    Visualization - completely conscious, needs to be maintained with a lot of energy, needs to be micromanaged.
    Daydream - telling myself a story, it can be with our without a narrative over, usually with good visuals. It's part me, part subconscious. Me steering the whole thing but micromanaging isn't needed. It stops if I stop.
    Dream - 100% subconscious, running on its own.

    I used to think that when anything happens in my daydream which I didn't put there (a new object, a new scenery) that it means that it is a dream. But in fact, it is not stable at that point. It needs more to become a dream.
    When daydreaming during hypnagogia, a lot can happen. My dreaming mind is usually trying to distract me by changing the scenery and changing things in my dream. It is OK to let it rather than trying to keep the focus... but it is then hard to stay lucid. This often leads to semi-lucid dreams. With a good chance of regaining the lucidity later.

    One more note: My FAs are never in my bedroom. It can be a hotel room, random room, or just trying to sleep anywhere, like on the road. Fragmented low-quality sleep causes this type of FAs for me.
