    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. Black Market Trade

      by , 09-07-2018 at 05:26 AM
      I was in a formal dress at a big meeting where there were rows and rows of seats. I don't remember anything about the meeting except that this was one of my dreams where languages kind of mixed randomly and people would switch between Korean, English and Spanish with no rhyme or reason.

      After the meeting a shady looking white guy in a trench coat asked me if I would hand over an "item" to one of my Korean friends for him. I don't really know what was going through my head but I agreed and took some weird black package he had stuffed in his trench coat. I found my old friend in the hallway outside the room where the meeting was held. We said hi and stuff, and suddenly he showed me a big open envelope for me to put the package in. I understood the gesture despite him not saying anything, and I attempted to put the item in the envelope. I was a little clumsy, though, and I fumbled with the package and then dropped it on the ground. When I went to pick it up some government officials, who were big men in suits wearing sunglasses, introduced themselves to us and then told us in English that they knew what we were doing (funny because I still didn't really know what I was doing) and that we would need to come with them. My Korean friend deliberately only spoke Korean to them and eventually they gave up on talking to him, but they took me into a dark room with a single spotlight over an interview table.

      They started asking me for my name and identification papers (I didn't have whatever those were supposed to be), and they interrogated me about the package. I woke up before we really got started though. Or maybe my recall just fades off at that point. I'm not really sure.
    2. Going to School

      by , 05-27-2018 at 02:01 PM
      I had a dream that started with me looking at a poster with the moon on it. I think it was a historical thing about the moon landing. I was talking to my parents about it. We needed to get to a destination from the school we were at and someone gave us a map. My mom took the map and showed it to my dad and myself. As we were looking at it we saw that there were several paths leading to our destination, and while most were marked with a little flag picture with the letter B, some were marked with A. A lady told us that if we went through the areas marked with A and avoided the ones with B we would get extra points. So that is what we did. I talked to my dad about some TV show as we went.

      When we arrived we were in front of a big hospital. My dad was saying that this pile of dirt in front of the hospital was a great place for what we were planning (I can't remember what we were planning). A fire started in front of the hospital and we were tasked with finding someone in the hospital that can help. I remember asking my mom why we didn't just call the fire department.

      After searching for a bit we couldn't find the person we were looking for and so my dad made an announcement to everyone in the room about the fire and who we were looking for. This caused everyone to panic and run around in circles. I walked outside and an old friend was telling me to jump in his car. I walked toward the car about I guess I was too slow because my friend got out and three girls got in the car with the driver and drove off. Two other boys I knew from a long time ago, one from high school and one from when I was very little, found us and we all started walking to the school together.

      I saw the boy I knew from when I was very young pull out a plastic bag with Nintendo DS cartridges in it. "You still play Nintendo DS?" I asked him.

      "Yeah, these are just the games that I like." He told me.

      "I never really got into those," I replied, looking that the games he was sifting through, "but that is awesome for you. You should do whatever you want."

      At this point the boy I knew from high school started talking about how much fun he had had playing pokemon. This started up a conversation wherein we all discussed our experiences with the game. They were both astonished when I told them I never really played a pokemon game until high school.

      When we arrived at the school I had trouble getting through the front door because I was apparently wearing a really big, overstuffed backpack that I hadn't noticed until this point. I crawled into an open window for some reason.
    3. Corrupted police working with the yakuza

      by , 05-11-2018 at 11:08 PM
      In this dream there were a lot of flashback type moments and fake memories, and I wasn't always sure whether I was in a flashback or a current timeline in the dream, so it is hard to write in chronological order.

      I was working as a detective with the police in an american city that I didn't recognize. My partner was a man that you might think of as the stereotypical cop, big muscles, slightly overweight, very serious about his job. We worked out of a station on a new york-esque street and we each worked in the front of the building. The room was horizontal parallel with the street and had glass windows covering the entire wall kind of like you would see in a downtown clothing store. As we were looking over cases on the computers my partner got a call for us to check out the crime scene of a homicide. We immediately got up and left for the scene. It was raining hard and it was already dark outside. I got in the passenger seat of the car and we talked about the call as we drove out of the city and into the countryside. I got a call from a friend who apparently ran a crime organization or something, I think she was a weapons dealer or something like that. She told me that the cops were in coalition with the yakuza again. She said "aren't you glad that you joined that corrupt organization?"

      Then there was a flashback type event where I remembered a point before I became a detective. I remembered the yakuza in the city controlling the streets and the police looked the other way. The robbers and murderers from their organization always "got away" because no one did anything about it. I remember vaguely someone getting stabbed in an alleyway.

      Apparently this was in the past, the connection was eventually uncovered, and the corruption was supposedly purged.

      As we were driving we got a call from the chief of police saying there was a criminal organization compound discovered and there all units were to report for an immediate raid of the compound with "assistance". I knew the deal behind it, that it was my friend's place and the yakuza were raiding it, but I didn't say anything to my partner.

      My memory is a little vague for a while but when we got there it was in the middle of a almost canyon like place, and down into a big (maybe 30m wide) hole in the ground with water at the bottom (maybe a spring?) there was a walkway into a big metal door in the rock on the side of the hole.

      I must have snuck away from the pack of police and yakuza gathering at some point, because I was on the other side of the hole spying what was going on hiding on the branches of a dead tree. No one seemed to notice me even though thinking back I should have been plainly visible in the situation as it was morning now and light out. The police stayed on the high ground to apprehend any escapees, and the yakuza entered the compound. I figured that even though my friend was a criminal, the right thing to do would be to help her and her gang, since the yakuza would probably kill or torture them. After the yakuza had all stormed inside I ran in through the front doors. At first I tried to be stealthy but in the narrow steel hallways I was soon found and I started sprinting through the hallway which occasionally had sets of stairs going up.

      The group that saw me first were unable to catch me as I ran deeper into the compound. When I ran into another group of yakuza on the next set of stairs I beat one to the ground, and then I grabbed another guy and threw him into two yakuza girls to keep them from following me as I ran up the stairs. (As I was in complete police uniform I had a holstered gun but I don't recall ever using it).

      When I got to the next group one guy had a katana and tried to fight me with it but I was able to take it out of his hands and knock him out with a punch to the jaw. I kept fighting but my dream ended there.

      This was a violent dream, wow . I wonder what happened to my friend?

    4. Buying Souvenirs

      by , 05-06-2018 at 02:32 PM
      This morning I found myself at Gyeongbokgung palace again. When I got to the entrance I realized I was just in street clothes, and I remembered that I was going to try to show up in hanbok from now on so I crossed the street and found the store from my first dream about the palace. Luckily everything was the same and I was able to get the same dress without paying for it.

      As I waited in front of the palace I lost my lucidity. Eventually some girl came up to me and asked if I wanted to go shopping. I said yes, and we went into one of the palace's museums and starting looking at and buying souvenirs. Somehow I had a purse that I didn't have in the beginning of the dream, and inside it I had a lot of Korean money. The money was really detailed and accurate looking. I bought some hanja writing pens (basically pens with little paintbrush tips), a cute notebook, a puzzle, and some multicolored chopsticks with Korean written on them. I don't know what the other girl bought.

    5. Cafeteria Joke

      by , 04-30-2018 at 01:49 PM
      So I was at a school and I was going to eat with this guy who apparently was my friend. The place kind of looked like my middle school cafeteria so maybe I was in middle school? I was wearing jeans and a t shirt.

      So as we are in line for our food we are waiting and out of boredom I start talking and I make this joke that has practically everyone in earshot laughing, except my friend. My friend just had this sad look on his face. I guess the joke must have been an offensive one, I feel like maybe it was making fun of boys.

      Anyway I guess I got really popular but I felt really bad after seeing my friend's reaction. The dream showed me this list, it was kind of like a pause screen or a spreadsheet I guess. The list had all the people around me and described their reactions. Most of them thought I was hilarious, a couple of them laughed along because they wanted to fit in, but what really got me was the report about my friend. "You really hurt him with that joke. It might take him a while to get over this."

      The joke must not have really been that funny since I can't remember it.
    6. Gyeongbokgung palace 2

      by , 04-29-2018 at 02:30 PM
      This dream memory is very vague and non lucid.

      I remember standing by the entrance to the palace in the same hanbok as last time (maybe this could become a way for others to recognize me? ). I had somehow got myself to the palace for the shared dreaming experiment without having a lucid dream. At some point someone came up to me and asked "What are you doing?"

      "Waiting on a friend", I told her or him.

      We talked longer but I don't remember the words.

    7. Badguys in the Orphanage

      by , 04-28-2018 at 07:17 PM
      The first part of this dream was like a movie - I didn't control or embody any of the characters I just watched. There was this lady and this man working at an orphanage. I think they made medicine or something, I'm not sure. But both of them would sneak out of the orphanage to sell stuff that they brought out. They had all these secret passages out of the orphanage going through air ducts and laundry chutes. One day as the woman was sliding down a laundry chute and then through an air duct she was caught because there were construction workers working on the air ducts. The boss talked to her and she admitted that she and the other man were selling the medicine (or whatever it was I am just guessing) illegally. So she and the man were reprimanded, but did not get fired. As a last ditch effort they both took everything they could carry and ran away from the place. The police were chasing them but they got away.

      I started doing something after watching the movie but I can't remember what happened.
    8. Alien fishing

      by , 04-18-2018 at 09:56 PM
      So my family and I were all together fishing in the mountains. It was a cool temperature, probably 50F or 10C. It was a lake that we used to visit often when I was little in the mountains near my hometown. I was wearing jeans, sneakers, and a dark blue hoodie.

      We were fishing for alien fish. I don't know how we knew they were alien but they definitely looked strange. They had huge black eyes and dark green scales, and they made this weird squaking sound when they came out of the water. I was sitting on a rock next to my dad. Toward the end of the dream he looked at me and said, "You know, some people think that it is wrong to fish for aliens when you don't need food, and they think that it is just killing the animals for pleasure. But really that's not true at all. Since they are visiting our mountains they don't understand what is safe to eat, and catching and releasing actually helps them to survive longer."

      The way he presented his train of thought was very typical of my dad, but the situation and the specific words were really strange
    9. Giant bananas

      by , 04-17-2018 at 07:38 PM
      In this dream me and my brother were running around a kitchen, but we were like a couple inches tall. We were looking for bananas for some reason. They were hidden in random parts of the kitchen and we had to be creative to figure out how to get up on counters and into cupboards and such. When we found a banana we would high five and look for more. It was a really strange dream.
    10. Earthbending soccer

      by , 04-14-2018 at 04:34 AM
      So I took a nap and as I fell asleep I tried to focus my thoughts on my favorite TV show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, to get a related dream. Most of the environment and clothing, etc. was typical to that of the Earth Kingdom in the cartoon. The whole dream felt like a weird, semi lucid state, where I kind of knew I was dreaming but it never really crossed my mind.

      I woke up in a small room with a bed, a hole in the wall for a window, a closet, and a mirror. I went to the closet and put on a green skirt and a white top. I found some green flats as well, they were really simple looking shoes but they had no laces. I looked in the mirror and saw myself, I was a lot shorter than I am in waking life and I was a darker-skinned asian. I started doing my hair when I heard my mom: "Misun, I made breakfast!"

      That was my name in the dream. "Coming!" I called back as I did my hair and put on eyeliner. When I was finished I went out into the dining room. We must have been relatively poor, our house appeared to be made of clay or something, and there was little furniture, just a small table with some chairs. I saw my family. There was a lady and a younger girl, the lady was my mom in the dream and the girl was my younger sister. Both were similar looking to me, but mainly different in age. My sister's skin was a lighter shade than mine.

      I sat down and ate toast. After I took a bite, my mother started talking to me while she washed dishes in the kitchen using a faucet and bucket. "Misun, I need you to pick up some milk on your way home from school today" (I must have been high school aged and I think my sister was probably a couple years younger than me).

      "Alright, I can do that." I replied. My sister made a silly face at me and I smiled at her. After we finished breakfast my sister put on a backpack and I picked up a shoulder bag thing and carried it like a purse. It had a couple books and supplies in it. We said goodbye to our mom and left the house. Most of the houses outside looked pretty similar to our house and the street was smooth stone, about 8 feet wide. My sister and I talked about a lot of things while we walked to school together. Among the things we talked about, I remember talking about schoolwork and cooking. "Can you help me cook fried rice this afternoon? I want to learn how."

      "Sure.", I told her.

      "Oh, and some of my friends want to play 축구 on lunch break today. Do you want to play?" (축구 is the Korean word for soccer)

      "Yeah, that sounds like fun." I said. As we approached the school we entered a gate with the earth kingdom symbol overhead, a circle with a square cut out of the middle. I parted ways with my sister as we entered different doors to the school. I walked to a locker and opened it, putting some of the books in my locker. Someone approached from behind and I turned around. It was a tall guy with dark hair smiling at me. I must have known him within the context of the dream's story because I didn't think it was weird at all. "Hey Misun, do you want to go eat at the dancing dragon tonight?"

      "Sorry, I'm teaching my sister to cook tonight," I told him, "but thanks for inviting me." I closed my locker and went to my classroom.

      When in my classroom the teacher handed out scrolls to each of us. This is the only part where I have evidence for the dream possibly being lucid, because I remembered that people speak English and write Chinese characters in the world of Avatar, and I was excited because I remembered talking with DawnEye11 about reading foreign language in dreams. The teacher started talking but it was kind of like a charlie brown cartoon where I didn't pay attention to a single word she said. I opened the scroll and found it was written in Chinese, just as I expected. Most of it was unrecognizable to me, and was probably fake Chinese since I can't read many of the characters, but I read two characters that I did recognize,中國, which I read as 중국 which means China. Funny, I always connected Earth Kingdom culture and symbolism with that of China.

      After class we went outside for a break. I found my sister and we started playing that earthbending soccer game you see in the cartoon. So my sister and I and another earthbending girl played against these three boys. I have earthbended in dreams before, so the motions and the feeling of force came pretty naturally to me. It is one of my favorite things to do in dreams. It's like a whole new skillset to learn that is not even possible in reality. (although you technically could learn the martial art it's based on). We only scored once, and high fived each other, before either the dream ended or my memory faded, not sure which one.

    11. Nerf Gun Surprise and Awkward Love Triangle

      by , 04-12-2018 at 02:45 PM
      So in the dream I was in the military at basic training or something similar. There were a few dozen of us and we all had decided to play a prank on the sergeant. We were all wearing military uniform, we had camo face paint on, and we all had nerf guns. As the drill sergeant came around a nearby fence we all started shooting him with the nerf guns. He was mildly amused but made us all do push-ups for doing the prank.

      In the dream I had three friends, two guys and a girl. The guys were both constantly flirting with the girl, and they both liked her, but I knew the girl well enough I knew she only liked one of them. She would act very nonchalant about everything, which made them flirt with her more. It was a little amusing to watch because I knew which of the guys she was into, and that they were both flirting with her, but they both thought she liked them and had no idea that the other was going for her too, despite us all being friends.

      On a bit unrelated note, the dream ended in some sort of class that I had with one of those boys. None of us in the class were paying attention and most of us were pretty bored. My friend asked this other guy if he can go get him a hot dog and asked if I wanted anything. I said I would go for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So he wrote something down saying "just so you don't forget what to get us", and then handed him a note. When the guy came back he had three pbj sandwiches made with hamburger buns on a plate in one hand and a hot dog on a plate in the other. He handed us our food, I said "thank you", and then he put down the note that my friend handed him on the table. The note said "Justin is a man, Julie is a woman". I am guessing that Justin was the name of my friend, but I didn't know what this note had to do with getting us food. I took a bite of my hamburger bun peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It tasted pretty good, basically what you would expect a well made sandwich with good peanut butter and jelly and really soft white bread to taste like. I don't get to taste things in my dreams very often, so this was a treat.
    12. Barefoot at the clothing store

      by , 04-11-2018 at 07:10 PM
      I had a false awakening, and I opened my closet to find nothing but a single black dress. My logical decision was to put it on and go buy more clothes. So I went to a clothing store barefoot in this black dress, and some people looked at me weird but nobody said anything. I ended up buying a lot of clothes, but I don't think I ever bought shoes despite that being the more pressing need at the moment. Most of the dream is hard to remember.
    13. Save the research facility

      by , 04-08-2018 at 04:00 PM
      This dream was really long and probably had a detailed story, but sadly I don't remember most of it.

      I was in some sort of large yard with lots of special buildings in it, and the buildings had lots of computer and technology stuff, so I am calling it a research facility. I was wearing a white skirt and shirt, and I had a denim jacket on. I believe I was the leader of this organization because I kept telling people what to do and they would do it. Most of the people who worked there were guys and girls I knew from high school. Everyone was dressed for their job except me, I guess I could do what I wanted since I was the leader .

      At some point I became aware of some bad guys running around planting bombs on the buildings. I was running around frantically trying to disable all the bombs, and I was telling people to go and find these bombers and such. I told some people to build more buildings as some of the buildings were getting destroyed, and I told one guy to go check the security station and call me back and tell me where all these intruders are. I remember thinking that as long as we kept some buildings long enough someone would come save our facility. Eventually I found the people bombing our buildings, but I didn't do anything to them, I just followed them and disabled all their bombs while telling people to build stuff as far away from the bad guys as they could.
    14. Recurring dream about a baby

      by , 04-07-2018 at 02:52 PM
      Well, it is sort of a recurring dream, but some parts of it change. I have dreams where I am a mother and I have a baby in my arms and I sing the baby to sleep. There is always a lot of emotion/love in the dream, and I know I am the mother of the child, but the rest of the details tend to change.

      In this dream I was sitting in my dad's chair, which is too big for me (I am actually pretty tall, but my dad owns this huge reclining chair where only he can touch the ground, he is 6'4"/194 cm). I am wearing a light blue dress/night gown sort of thing. I am holding a baby girl in my arms and I know she is my daughter. She starts crying so I rock her in my arms and start humming Epona's song from the Legend of Zelda. Usually my hearing is not spectacular in dreams, but in these dreams I always hear the singing or humming very clearly, and this sounded very much like the music in the game. Maybe I have perfect pitch in my dreams .

      If someone is really curious what it sounds like:

      As I hum it the baby quickly stops crying and then slowly starts smiling. Then, after about a minute or so, she falls asleep. The hardest part to describe is the feeling. One of the greatest feelings of love. When the baby starts smiling I just experience joy. The dream is too short, and I want her to be real .

    15. Restaurant with friends

      by , 04-04-2018 at 02:11 PM
      I walked into a fast food restaurant late at night in a dark-colored dress. Walking felt kind of awkward - maybe I was wearing heels too? There was no line, so I walked up to the counter right away and looked long and hard at the menu. The staff there sounded like they were getting bored, so I just ordered the first thing I saw, which was a hot dog. They told me to look at this touch screen and select the options I wanted. There was a peaceful beach background on the screen and orange boxes with black text popped up when I There were lots of options and whenever I chose something the staff would immediately do it. For example, I chose medium or large and the workers behind the counter would immediately get out the size bun and start cooking the hot dog of the size I chose. The last choice had two options: one said "crunchy" and the other said "I'm not hungry". I had no idea what crunchy meant, but the people that worked there were getting impatient and I definitely felt hungry, so I chose crunchy. When I did so one of the workers immediately went to a machine and put my hot dog under it. She pressed a button and the machine dumped salad and ranch on my hot dog, something I definitely did not want, and gave me the hot dog. I was too tired to say anything about it and I suppose I did choose crunchy, so I just took the tray with the hot dog.

      I looked around for a place to sit. I thought I saw a guy I know from church, so without saying anything, I walked up to his table and sat across from him. When I sat down, though, I noticed that the guy was a complete stranger. I started to panic until I heard a friend say "Hey Julie, how's it going?". I looked at her and then looked around to realize the other people sitting in the area were a bunch of my girlfriends. I was relieved and I responded to my friend, then grabbed my cup and when to the fountain to get myself a pop. The hunger is a weird feeling to remember, especially since I was not hungry when I woke up.
