    Lucid Time!

    Begin Again. (LD #137)

    First, nonlucid bits and bobs from this morning.

    A dream about my mom starting a business. She was working with my father and many of the adults in my family to build her headquarters. I was for some reason complaining that the entrance was asymmetrical; it had two different windows on the sides that were different sizes. In fact, much of the building was like this. It was because she was trying to build it without using any blueprints to make a point about collaboration. Google Drive was involved somehow.

    This somehow transitioned to or from a dream about simply driving around a city. All of the buildings look dream-logicy. Some were floating. Others took on strange or impossible shpaes.

    Something to do with a superhero who's power was to give and take superpowers from other heroes. All of the powers would be stored on this ring, like a green lantern ring.
    He gave 25% of his powers to two people and kept 50% for himself. I am unsure of what powers he gave/kept. He said something about power and how when humans have power they don't use it, and when they don't have it, they think they do.
    This hologram on the ring showed that he had created a 'power gap'.


    I was trying to shared dream with S. We got into this thing where we wanted to have a lucid dream battle. S summoned a fire dragon, and I summoned this robot from my comic known as Dream Crusher. We forgot to come up with the battlefield so it was just a white void.
    DC shot all of these chains out of his hand and ensnared the dragon. (An ability he does not have in the comic.) The dragon tried to melt the chains. DC tried to smash him with his hammer. (An ability he does have.) The dragon broke free through strength and began fighting back.


    I did LDs number 136 and 138. So this will be LD 137.

    And a lil background: Night One - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views

    I had a rather long lucid dream where I can't quite recall what was going on. I can recall being in my own backyard and would periodically pull leaves off of trees and fly up in the sky. I can recall changing the clouds to be made of some kind of clay-like material and getting rid of them and I am trying all of these forms of dream control.
    Some of it is working, and some of it is not. I was trying to talk to the dream, or my subconscious or whatever in a polite manner.
    ...
    "Can we get these clouds to disappear please?"
    ...
    "Can we get it to be lighter, please?"
    ...
    "Can we get it to be warmer outside, please."
    ...
    I see a giant picture of Benjamin Franklin with cat ears on the side of somebody's house. I needed something dream-logicy like that to become
    fully lucid.
    I correctly recall my lucid goal was to give Manei the hair clip from my first night of lucid dreaming. I yell her name into the sky and see a black cat with blue eyes, sitting in front of a crystal grid on the patio. And of course she turns and runs the other way (for some reason.)
    I begin chasing her up the side of my house. First things first, I put my hand behind my back, hoping I can manifest it. I feel a little thing drop into my hand.
    And there it was! After four years I almost forgot what the dumb thing looked like. Before it was this huge, and a vibrant bright red. It looked darker and less vibrant than I recall from my first LD, it was also a lot smaller.
    I'm see she is still running the other way. (I don't know, DGs are weird.)
    "Come back, I just want to give you something. Then you can run off and do whatever it is you do."
    She stops.
    "The hair clip! From the first time I LD'd. I realized that I never actually gave it to you."
    ...
    Manei.exe has stopped working. It took her a good five seconds. Then she seemed to remember what I was talking about.
    ...
    "Well in that case, I'm going to have to change the whole story now. Turn around."
    She changes back into human form while my back is turned. We start walking together up around the front of my house. It's cloudy and overcast, and for some reason there are portraits of famous people with hilarious accessories such as MLK with sunglasses and a YOLO cap, and George Washington with headphones on the side of peoples houses. There was some dream-logicy explanation, like a contest or something.
    We sit down in my front yard. The dream that was originally cold and gray seems to be getting a lot brighter now.
    "Here, take this, I have no use for it."
    She took it, still looking somewhat befuddled. I guess dream guides aren't all that used to getting gifts.
    Then I remembered the extra credit homework. I wanted to give her a headband or bandanna, like the one that I wear in WL. I wanted it to have my lucid dream symbol on it.

    (sorry I could only find a picture of it in cyan.)
    "Now, then, if you still want my wardrobe advice..."
    I put my hand behind my back *Le Manifest*.
    Successful again. It's even a tan color, the color I imagined making it. They symbol isn't right though. For some reason looks like this.

    I look on the reverse and see the logo from my Taekwondo studio.
    "Okay, I didn't get the symbols right, but I want you to have it anyway. I think you would look good in a bandanna."
    For some reason my oldest living cat enters the dream (I've had four cats IWL. the oldest one is dead.) . He does this thing that he does IWL where he puts his rear end in the air asking you to scratch near the base of the tail. I start scratching him. I get the dream ending feeling, and just let the thing come to an end. While it fades out, I say something to myself like "Let's begin again"...


    And now it's 1:30am and I am filled with all the giggly feels you get when you accomplish a lucid goal.

    And if she actually wears that bandanna next time, I will have no words.

    A memorable tag for this lucid.

      (⌒▽⌒)☆Congrats on accomplishing that goal of yours! Its sweet how you were able to give Manei the clip from the first time you saw her and the bandanna too. I don't recall you writing that Manei was a cat before but that makes her even more awesome. Cats are one of my favorite animals~lol Also, reading the drunk lucid part and the yolo cap on MLK was pretty funny.> w >

      What's the meaning behind that lucid dream symbol?

      Aye. She can form-change. I mean there is the usual stuff like changing her age to be an old woman or a young child, then there is the weird stuff like her turning into a cat or one time she was Jonny Cage from Mortal Kombat. I can tell it's her through energy she gives off. (In dreams you can sort of feel the energy of someone, are they good, evil etc.)

      What's the meaning behind that lucid dream symbol?
      It's supposed to look like the letters LD for lucid dream. I was trying to use it as a reality check by having it all over my living space (on my wall, on my schoolbooks, my computer desktop background.) The symbol only ever manifested once in my dream after about six months, though. I abandoned the project, but the symbol stuck around. Now it's more of a personal signature than anything else. In my college dorm all my items like toothpaste and books and stuff have that symbol on them.

      As for the symbol that actually appeared, I wouldn't know.

      I find that quite fascinating you've invested all this effort for dreams. Pretty cool, in an unusual and almost creepy way.

      So now the bigger point I find it necessary to mention........ when you gave Manei the bandanna with your signature, it would seem like you were claiming her as you might a tube of toothpaste or your books. Given all that you've learned of her, do you think she would appreciate being claimed as property?

      I suppose I didn't look at things that way. Because, the original meaning of that symbol was to represent lucid dreaming. But no. If I wanted to claim her as property I'd get a branding iron. Having my signature on something that I gave to her was meant to show that it was a gift for me. (And maybe finally get that symbol to appear in a prominent place so that I can become lucid.)
      But the thing is, I enjoy Manei, and I don't want to treat her badly. She might not be the perfect dream guide, but that doesn't stop me from still respecting her.
      Way to make me feel ashamed of a very well-meaning action.

      That's epic. I really wish you'd try this. I mean, whether you fail or succeed wouldn't matter; that'd be hilarious. I'm kidding though, I've heard it's rude to brand people. Doesn't get very good results relationship-wise either.

      I knooooooooow. The gesture was quite sweet.

      Oh heck no, not in a million and two years am I gonna do this, to Manei or anyone else in a dream. One of the things that I noticed very early on is that the idea of no consequences in a dream doesn't really apply. You can't just go around having sex and killing people (well, you can, but it's not the best idea if you want to impress your subconscious.) In dreams, you kind of have to go with the dream world and be positive.

      Not sure if sarcasm or trolling.

      Wait... NO! I know why you're acting like this. That dreaming group you invited me to; they're making you kindle an argument with as some sort of stupid test.
