    LUCID: Toilet in Wrong Place, Stabilize, Dissolve DC, Flying!

    by , 07-23-2013 at 11:10 AM (1180 Views)
    Despite being a DILD this was also a WBTB because I got up around 3:30 am and made myself a warm milk with honey, and thought about dreams, and intended to lucid dream.

    At the start of this dream, I was outside with my mother. The area was not at all like my home's surroundings - lots more grassy open spaces for one, but in my dream I did not notice. All of a sudden I needed to pee bad. I ran for my home (or what my dream mind considered my home). When I got there, I realized that I forgot my purse somewhere outside, but luckily my door was open. As I was stepping inside the house, someone was after me, so i closed and locked the door. but they tried to get in, and then i realized it was my mother, so I opened the door for her. I said: "I forgot my purse somewhere close to the bushes, but now I really got to pee!" My mother said "So you forgot your purse," as if it were not a big deal, "so go pee."

    I went into the bathroom, and saw that the toilet was not where it usually is. My first thought was to try to rationalize it, maybe the toilet is broken. But then it hit me: it's a dream! As I turned to what used to be my mother, (s)he transformed into a strange man, and there was another strange man there now. But I knew it was a dream, and I did not care. In fact I out of some reason sat on the lap of one of the two men on the floor in the hallway in front of the bathroom, and I grinned, and he grinned back. I knew he was not real.

    I exited the bathroom and hallway area. The home now was our current home: same layout and look. I remembered that I had to stabilize my dream, so then I looked at my hands. They started shaking, but then stabilized. I don't remember any more how the first man disappeared, but I do remember looking at the other guy (this was not the guy whose lap I had sat in, but the other one), and thinking "why are you still here? I don't need you." So I stared at him, and he faded slowly out of existence, until there was just a transparent shape, and then completely gone.

    I remembered that I was supposed to have dream goals. I couldn't clearly remember then, but I remembered that some were specific to the dream competition, and I remembered that had just ended. So I decided to go with the tried and true generic goal: flying. I exited the house by the door, but then started flying.

    At first I had trouble and was flying upside down and did not see things well. But then my flight stabilized, and I was at a height that was close to roof tops. I was flying through what seemed to be a little European style town, very different from where my home really is. The buildings were all somewhat unique looking, but not artificially so - it fit the European small town look.

    Then while still dreaming, I heard and became aware of my husband shifting in bed next to me. I knew I was about to wake up. I looked around at the houses in flight a bit more, but then I did wake up.

      I just realized that this dream starts with a sense of urgency and forgetting something important, and that may be my urgency to become lucid and having forgotten that it is a dream. Also both the non-lucid and lucid parts of this dream seemed to play with the notion of the familiar versus the unfamiliar: mother to stranger to sit on lap, home and neighborhood different versus familiar.

      Congratz on the lucid dream! I think I might try dissolving someone in my next dream.

      You know, I am not sure how I feel about the dissolving of a DC myself, I still don't really know why I did it, because while it is true that I didn't need this guy, but he wasn't bothering me. Personally I prefer to act decently toward DCs at least that's how I plan for it in waking life, but apparently when I am dreaming when I don't need a DC I dissolve him - go figure. I don't really feel guilty over it since I knew he was not real, and still know that, but I don't think I would plan for it that way. If I could redo this dream, I think though that I would prefer to ask that DC why he was there, and see what answer I got, because even though I did not think of any reason why I needed him there, maybe my subconscious had a reason to include him after all.

      After I wrote this a possible reason for why that DC was there occurred to me: maybe at some point in the dream there needed to be three of us, me plus two DCs, because three is a meaningful number to me. I had a dream once in which I dreamed that three is complete. So maybe after I became lucid I felt complete, and so there were three of us, but once I stabilized the dream, I realized that now I did not need those DCs because I was now fully complete all by myself. Hey, I like that idea.

      Congratulations on the LD, Joanna! Sounds like some beautiful flight time.

      Thanks!

      Oh, and since I am having as much fun with dream interpretation as with lucid dreaming, here are some more ideas about my dream: I found my mind more open than I had expected, and my own open mindedness scared me, since I realized strange ideas might come in, so I briefly closed my mind again, but then I reconsidered and decided the ideas I thought to be strange were actually very familiar, so I let them in. By the time I discovered that the ideas were strange after all and more than I thought, I did not mind because by then I knew they were all in my own mind already internalized and thus safe. The open grassy area at the beginning of the dream is like the open door. The European small town may be about my European origins, or the uniqueness of the homes may be about uniqueness of ideas or of human minds that are all individual and different.

      omg! i got a chill and a very uneasy feeling when reading about your flying.. I too was over a European/ french style town..it had like a stone road, and the roofs were the old red ceramic roof shingles, like half cylinders..
      crazy
      i was over the roof too, like maybe a foot or three over the tops of the houses, but never any higher than that

      I don't recall the shingles any more, but yes, I was not much higher than that from roof tops. It is interesting indeed how similar the dream you discribed in your dream interpretation entry is to mine. I do not get uneasy about it though, just intrigued. You know some people have joked in the past that DV members have similar dreams because we are developing a hive mind.
