    Lucid Time!

    Manei tries to summon the Angelic Dwarven Guardian (LD #121), Destroying the Lucid Barrier (LD #122)

    Well... good night last night. Took me an hour to type this up.

    I was driving along in a mountainous region supposedly on some family vacation with my parents. The sky looks to be a very deep shade of blue and I think there were some planets in the sky. The mountains we are on don't look very earth-like either.
    The mountains are made out of a light brown/tawny rock and covered in moss that seems to flow over them like water. Exotic fern-trees grow in some of the more level areas but the mountains are fairly jagged.
    The road we are driving on is narrow (two lane) and built up on this really high end, futuristic looking bridge. Eventually I saw that we were coming up on a settlement in a valley.
    It was a very small settlement. Two houses, one of the houses is very modern with a big glass wall on the front and a solar array on the roof. The other one looks older, being made of bricks with a circular drive out front. There is also an old fashioned well and a park with swings and a play structure.
    My parents said that we had been driving for awhile and that we should pull over and eat lunch as a family in this park.
    ...

    This somehow led me to becoming lucid. I ran into Manei, who had taken on a youthful form, she was about 8. She then turned and ran and I came after her. I chased her across the playground structure and she went down the slide.
    "Come on! Go down the slide!"
    "mmm... Ok."
    I go down the slide, trying to rack up a little bit of dream stabilization along the way. I recall the slide being a reddish color, and having scuff marks on it. Before I reach the bottom, she says something else.
    "When you get to the bottom, don't stop!"
    I slide down and when I come off the end of the slide I go forward a little bit because of my momentum and land on my butt in the wood chips. For some reason I seem to sink into the wood chips.
    "Good, I had to make sure you were still (able to act like a child). The Dwarven Guardians who run this place really like that."
    "...?"
    "I'm going to summon the Angelic Dwarven Guardian now. Now you won't be able to see him because (He exists across the fourth dimension), but (He will be standing right in front of you) you will be able to communicate with him through thoughts."
    Manei changes into her base form (goes through puberty in a couple of seconds) and begin concentrating on summoning him. The dream begins to shift, I have a false awakening, or a scenery change, can't remember. Anyways, I'm in my bedroom. The wood chips I was laying in have become my bed. I lose some lucidity.

    The dream scene changes again. I am now in the basement of my house, standing. Manei continues concentrating for a minute or two and then all four of our family's cats (including the dead one) show up. Our youngest cat is particularly interested in whatever she is trying to do. He meows and rubs against her leg.
    "Rrrrgh! No! (Facepalms) That's not what I meant to do!"
    The dream carried on for a minute as Manei became frustrated in her attempts to summon this being, and I just sort of stood there patiently waiting to see what exactly was going to happen. I began to feel like the cat, the young one was somehow a representation of the being we were trying to summon. I tried to lock onto the cats energy and he and I engaged in a staring contest. I could feel something else in there. I could see it in his eyes. I was about to tell Manei that she should change her approach when I woke up.


    5:10. Let's go back.

    I had a dream where I had gotten a job at a superstore, like Target or Wal-Mart. I was the Janitor and my job was to clean the interior windows on the office walls in the back. My boss (a grouchy, short, fat, black haired man) gave me a toilet brush that had been dipped in soapy water.
    "Get your ass moving now!"
    I walk into the back of the store and begin scrubbing the windows. I haven't been told that I have to dry them or anything, and wasn't given a towel, so I just scrub them clean. The first office is really easy, but the second office, for some reason, someone has splattered a muddy brown substance on the window. I couldn't tell if it was mud, chocolate, caramel, or *shudders* something worse.
    Regardless, I'm the Janitor, and I guess they have to put up with stuff like this, so I just push past it. I start scrubbing but my brush gets contaminated with the muddy substance. I'm not really cleaning anymore, I'm just moving the dirt around. I decide I will go back to my boss and tell him that I'm going to need a bucket of soapy water.
    I start walking back across the store floor to the front where my boss is; in the front. I don't get very far until I come across my mom who is shopping. She tells me that I really should put on some pants if I want to impress my boss, and I realize that I am wearing a shirt and briefs.

    Lucidity hits me like a brick wall.
    There was this weird part though where the scenario repeated itself semi lucid. I was in a library this time, and my boss was a female, but no less grumpy. I went through scrubbing the windows, but there was this extra part where I was trying to clean the brush off in a drinking fountain in the back of the library.
    ...
    Regardless, I had a false awakening. As my eyes started to open, I could tell I was in my bedroom.
    My lucidity was clear enough to remember that I had gone to sleep in my college dorm room. I did a nose pinch.
    "Yeah! Just what I thought! A false awakening!"
    Something felt odd about my bedroom, like everything was reflected to the opposite side.
    I started to get out of bed and I took note of how dark everything was. I decided to turn on the lights. The dream glitched here and I was instantly over at the door, facing as If I were walking into my bedroom. I flicked on the light-switch and nothing happened. I flicked it up and down two times, and nothing happened.
    "Wait... don't light switches not work in dreams...?"
    The light flashed on blindingly bright for a fraction of a second. I heard a loud scream, then everything was black. I could feel myself falling for a few seconds.
    ...
    I false awaken. After one false awakening, I was ready to catch the second one, especially if it was to be in the same place as the first. I was in my bedroom. It was dark. I looked at the floor to see that it had been extruded down about 20 feet and filled with water back to the level of the original floor. The weird part was, all the furniture was sitting in place on the surface of the water.
    I recall the water being dark and murky, and seeing a large shark or predatory fish of some sort in the water.
    I must not have been fully lucid because I felt trapped by it. Eventually a blurry-faced dream character in a tiny yellow inflatable dingy came in, rowing with a wooden paddle. When they came up to my bed, I pushed them into the water and stole their little boat.
    I rowed into the guest bedroom for some odd reason and the clarity and mood of the dream picked up significantly. I thought that I was in a surreal painting or something. The water here was very shallow, six inches at the most, and clear. There were brightly colored fish in it, and the carpet flooring had been replaced with wood.
    There was a waterfall flowing from a bottomless pitcher suspended in midair, down a wooden desk, then onto a wooden chair into the floor below. For some reason, there was also a coat rack with a couple of bird cages hanging from it, with brightly colored birds in them. Some of the cages were open and a couple of exotic dream-birds were circling around the room.
    There were vases of flowers everywhere and lily pads in the water.
    I saw a turtle in the water. The turtle had mosses and grasses growing on his shell. I asked the turtle if he would protect me from the shark that was in the other room. He then created this little explosion of bubbles and a tiny fish appeared. It was black and brown with yellow spots. He told me that the fish would protect me.

    I turned back and looked around the room. My lucidity was slipping and I had to remind myself that this was just a dream. I decided to go outside. I began walking out of my house, and the water floors were fading away now.
    ...
    I open the door and take one look. I couldn't help myself.
    Holy S**t!
    The dream world was so bright and realistic. I could make out every leaf on every tree, blowing in the wind. I could see a full, white moon rising in the daytime sky. The sky still had that look that it had in the first dream though, it was a darker blue than it should have been. All of the colors seemed to pop, though.
    The trees in our yard were not quite right though. They seemed to be of different species. The one that is right out the front door was replaced with this one with millions of tiny bright green leaves. And where our pine tree was was a palm tree that started with a single base and split into multiple tops. Another tree was replaced with a giant red and white mushroom.
    As I looked more closely at the sky, I could see a structure in it. I couldn't really describe quite what it looked like in words, but it was made up of these circular nodes. Each one had a rune symbol on it. The rune symbols were connected by large beams with small white lights along the edges. Between those larger beams were smaller intricate spiral and radial patterns, sometimes centering around the nodes. The structure arched across the whole sky.
    Although I couldn't quite tell what it was, I could tell that it was solid, probably made of stone or metal, and that it was at least a few miles up. It had a sort of technological look to it, like the surface of the death star would. But also a very mystical, design. There were a couple of clouds in places obscuring parts of the structure.
    I was a bit taken aback by all this scenery. I almost lost the dream.
    "Keep it together (Jade)! It's just a dream... A very very good lucid dream."
    Then, just when I couldn't taken any more, we got planets. Two of them. Somehow visible past the barrier. Both of them looked earth-like, with atmospheres and oceans. One was larger and looked pretty flat, mostly land. The other was much more topographically interesting with craters and oceans.
    I had to contain myself a second time. I tried to think of something I could do. I then thought of the "Lucid Barrier" and thought that perhaps that huge structure in the sky is my lucid barrier. I should fly up and destroy it!
    Okay, usually in very stable, vivid dreams, flying can be a bit of a hassle. I try not to think about the fact that there is a massive structure hindering my lucid dreaming ability right above me. I start running from my front porch, toward the road. I try projecting my energy out of my hands to generate lift. I can't feel any energy flowing. I look upwards, at the house across the street and try to imagine myself being pulled toward the second floor.
    I jump, and notice that I don't seem to be heading back toward the ground. I feel the energy start flowing from my hands, and my little hand rockets ignite. Classic.
    "Haha! Yeah!"
    All of the sudden I hear a horn. I am now in the middle of the road, and only a couple of feet off the ground. A large white van careens toward me. I get struck on the left and side of the van and spun around by the impact. But it doesn't really hurt, despite the fact that I was hit at a fairly high speed. I try not to let the spin destabilize or change the dream environment.
    The van fares a little worse though, it careens off the road and hits one of the neighbor's trees. The dream character; a black man with dreads gets out.
    "Hey! Watch it! I... You're flying... He's flying!" The dream character yells.
    Something made me realize that the huge structure in the sky was not my lucid barrier. I decide to manifest a physical representation of it and destroy it. I turned around, and in the middle of the street was my lucid barrier.
    It was made out of rings of a pink polished stone, like a target, with a white four pointed star, also made out of polished stone. There was a ring of grey polished stone that connected into a pedestal and a crescent of more white polished stone along the inside of the outer ring. It was actually a beautiful sculpture and I felt a little bit bad for having to destroy it.
    I started to fly at it. For some reason, my flying was a little bit awkward and I was flying feet-first. I wanted to turn myself around, until I realized this was actually perfect. I kicked into it, knocking out the white crescent and breaking the outer ring ring of grey stone. I looked back to see my work, and a little less than half of the wall was gone.
    I felt my lucidity get clearer. Then I realized the reason my lucidity was so clear, and that my mind was so awake was that I was actually waking up.


    Hopefully now that I started tearing down that lucid barrier my LDs will increase.

      The Dwarven guardian sounds cool;I can't help but think he is part dwarf when i see the name though. XD And its great how your recall and lucidity is really up there now. Maybe breaking that barrier caused you to wake up but if it motivates you more I guess it can help. ^w^ Oh, and it's cute how you were able to play with Manei in her child form. X3

      Yeah, Manei can be a real charmer. She's clearly cut from a different cloth than the usual dream guide. I'm still looking into why she appears so much. But she does have a vice:

      She's weird. She doesn't explain things. She does things that don't make sense half the time. ^Prime example. She wants to summon this Dwarven Guardian Angel so that I can have a telepathic communication. Why though?! A little explanation why I have to talk to this character would be nice.
      Same goes for the lucid barrier. That was actually put there by her, because she 'didn't trust me'. That didn't add up, since she's done nothing but trust me since the day we met, so I figured it had no reason to be there (See ya, stupid lucid barrier). And if it was supposed to be there, her mistake for not making it Jade-Proof.

      Yeah, I see what you mean. :3 But I have a question. What is a dream guide to you? Are they like spirit guides or just characters from your subconscious that appear to be smarter than the others DCs? Lol Jade proof. Every time I read that its funny.xD

      I've always been very middle-of-the-road with the idea of spirits and what-not existing, never really fully taking one side or the other. I'm open to the idea that dreams could be a spiritual connection but just as open to the idea that they are nothing more characters from our subconscious. I guess I lean more on the side of spirit though, because there really have been some things that go beyond what I think can be explained from a 'scientific' standpoint.

      For example:

      -I saw Manei in my dreams before I even became a lucid dreamer or knew what lucid dreaming was.

      -Manei has eluded once or twice to 'the other guy' ; there was some lucid dreamer before me that she was a guide for.

      -Perhaps the biggest one. I once found myself in a very realistic dream, and found that the nose pinch reality check did not work. Manei attempted to convince me that it was not a dream but an 'alternate reality'.

      Oh okay. ^^ I sort of had a feeling you leaned more on the spirit guide side. Its interesting that she appeared in your non lucid dreams a lot too but was this other lucid dreamer someone you knew? I guess your third point could be a convincing point because there are certain dreams that are really vivid its hard to validate whether its real or not. However, there are times when others try a reality check but it doesn't work in the dream too. Don't you think it could have just been a dream fluke? If it wasn't working after Manei told you perhaps it was because Manei was trying to convince you in the dream and the power of thought came into play. These are just my thoughts on it but you know more about what you experienced.

      Yeah. In fact, sometimes you'll read about a dream character named Marcus, who I guess is a representation of my more scientific side; him being an engineer/scientist/inventor/programmer, where as Manei is more the artist/adventure kind of person. I guess in some sense those characters are representative of my right and left brain.

      I promise I'll get caught up on you and Krista's DJ's this weekend.

      That is a interesting/cool way to view them. I never thought of it that way before. Okay but I didn't write a thing in my dream journal yesterday and I don't recall any of last night's dreams.Maybe tomorrow I will write something.
