      Dream 369 A - Business Attire On Demand
      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, it was night time and I was with a group of Killester students on a random beach. Ms Los. was the teacher and she was telling us the line up of activities. She mentioned something about business wear, which I realised I didn't have on me and so I was worried. We were standing in the shallow part of the water when I told her I forgot to wear business clothing. She said something back to me but I forgot what it was fully; she mentioned an incentive for when I did get into some business wear.

      I entered the cabin area and spoke to some of the girls in there. BK was also in my cabin and so I was talking to him. I then went over to my suitcase to see if I could find anything suitable to wear. After a while, things weren't looking promising and eventually, I came to the conclusion... I had forgotten to pack any form of business clothing altogether. BK was standing nearby and so I gave him a look like “Damn it... Forgot... God help me...”. I then had an idea; although I did think that maybe BK would give me strange looks for doing it and then question my methods.

      Regardless of any conflicting thoughts, I marched up to the front door of the cabin, slid it open, walked onto the balcony, leant on the rails, looked up into the night sky, and yelled, “Dreamy WB! I forgot to pack some business clothes!”. Out of nowhere a very feint hologram of Dreamy WB in her Oktoberfest outfit appeared and disappeared; then a light blue pencil skirt came plummeting out of the night sky and I caught it.

      When I got back inside the cabin, no one was in there anymore, I was now by myself and when I looked down, I now saw myself wearing cream coloured ballet flats. I tried to put the skirt on but it wouldn't go past a certain height on my legs, and so another conclusion was made. I'm thinking to myself, “This isn't big enough to fit over my tush”. Inside the cabin, I yelled, “Dreamy WB, the elastic's not big enough!”. I looked down and indeed the skirt's top elastic had extended itself by a centimetre or two, moving itself right in front of my eyes.

      So now I was able to slide on the skirt and then I put on a plain white t-shirt over the top. The next thing I was looking for was a jacket, so back I went onto the balcony and I yelled, “I need a jacket!”. This time there was no hologram. I was standing patiently, anticipating when the next garment would come. After a few short seconds, a lime-green coloured jacket came flying down at me from nowhere and once again, I caught it.

      Back in the cabin, I put on the jacket and then judged the outfit. “Hmm, I don't like the skirt”, I thought, “it doesn't sit well on me”. Outside I went again; “Dreamy WB, can I have a skirt to match the jacket?”. What looked like a plain lime-green coloured rag got thrown down at me but when I caught it, it became the shape of a skirt. When I opened the skirt up, I looked up at the sky at disbelief and thought “Dreamy WB what the...? This is too short!”. I was imagining being really harshly told off as the teacher looked up at my tush.

      For the fourth or fifth time, I went back outside but this time, the dream didn't show what I was asking for. When I came back inside, I had felt a sense of satisfaction which means that Dreamy WB must have gotten the outfit complete for me this time. I was wearing the lime-green jacket on top of a yellow t-shirt, along with a flaring red skirt with a yellow pattern and some yellow shoes.

      The dream then skipped to the end of the camp. Kids were going to go home by an aeroplane unless their parents came to pick them up early. It was what I dreaded, my parents came for me but not only that, they were looking really angry and there was still two or three days remaining on the camp. I said to them that the camp wasn't finished but they demanded that I come home with them now. I felt weak and helpless and so drooped off after them.

      In the next scene, it was day time and I was back at home. I was in the backyard and my parents were full-on and yelling really horrible things at me and top volume. In my head, I thought, “Call out for Dreamy WB before it gets worse” but the dream energy would never push me to do so, and so I was oblivious to act in that manner. Instead, I remained quiet and tried my hardest to block out their yelling while they carried on at full steam... The dream made me think that the best approach was to make it look like I wasn't trying to ignore them.

      The next scene played in the driveway and there was talk about the preparation my dad had to do for his colonoscopy procedure. As much as I wanted to help him, my mind was still set on the previous yelling and so I thought to myself, “you don't deserve my help”. My dad was also speaking in a tone like he was still upset with me. So basically, we still had resentment towards each other. That's all I can remember for this dream.

      Dream 369 B - Playgroup Pandemonium
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in this big place that looked like an American Wall-Mart store but the giant room was empty and it was also carpeted. The floor was divided into smaller squared areas, the boundary indicated by a strip of red carpet and the inside of the square boundary was plain grey carpet. I was holding some food and so wanted to find a place to sit and eat it. I decided I would sit in one of the squared areas and so I sat there with my back against a wall and ate the food.

      All of a sudden, these little kids started to sit in the square with me but I didn't know why. This young lady with a heavy American accent came up to us and said something like “okay guys, it's time to go back into playgroup”. I grew a look of the biggest shock on my face and I thought to myself, “Shit... This is the playgroup's area...”. I initially didn't think this area belonged to anyone, so I didn't know. I made signs to the lady like I wanted to leave but she wasn't having any of it. She treated me like I was one of the kids and actually physically dragged me into the playgroup classroom when I refused to go myself.

      The lady then introduced all these kids toys to me and I didn't look the least bit happy. She said something to me like “Now, you've got to count and place all these nine dominoes in a sequence for me”. In the slowest, most frustrated voice, I said “One...”, placed it on the floor “Two...” placed it on the floor, all the way up to the ninth one. I thought the lady would then be done but she wasn't; she was going to get me to do something else after that.

      I decided I would try and make my exit but change my nature to be subtle about it. I asked her, “Um, can I just go and do something? I promise I'll back, alright?”. I could tell the lady was going to get ready to tell me off but before she could say anything, I called out back to her, “I'll be back, I just need a break” as I was walking towards the door. After I dealt with her, I thought to myself, “When they see her, boy they're gonna feel like melting”... The image I had in my head though was of literal melting.

      I then thought, if I called out for “Dreamy WB”, they'd become suspicious and know something's up. I decided that instead, I would call for “Miss T” so it sounded like another teacher. I then stuck my head out the door and yelled, “Miss T!” as loud as I could. It felt like a few minutes but nothing happened. So then I went even louder, “Miss T! Get me out of here!”. The dream then showed me sitting on the floor again with the lady, childishly torturing me while I muttered “Miss T... Ugh...”. The dream soon ended though.

      Dream 369 C - How Christmas Should Be Decorated
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was supposedly in the underground car park of Chadstone Shopping Centre, although it didn't look the same as it does in real life. To start off with, I was walking with Sly, in his Sly 2/3 appearance, and something was going on regarding various disguises. Sly would quickly change in and out of these various disguises but there was mention about me not being able to do disguises or something like that.

      I then went over to Bentley, in his Sly 2/3 appearance, and walked with him next. We spoke about how he was going to be cut into pieces of some sort. To make it as painless as possible, I told him to turn to a 90 degree angle. At a certain pole of the car park, these little knives were coming towards Bentley and so that's when he followed my instructions and turned to a 90 degree angle. Indeed, he was chopped up into all these little turtle steaks but after a second or two, he reverted back to his whole figure.

      “Hmm, I'd better go and find Murray”, I said to Bentley. I then saw Murray walking towards me from the other end of the car park in his Sly 4 appearance. We greeted each other and then I walked with him across the car park, with him holding my hand (he wasn't wearing his gloves in this dream), and then into the shopping centre.

      Inside the shopping centre, Murray was now following behind me and I was leading the way. I took him to the second floor of the shops and I told him “look at this!” at the same time, thinking in my head “you stupid...”, while pointing to the big Christmas tree sticking up from the first floor. The decorations were everywhere and in just about every single colour. The baubles were in blue, purple, pink, red and orange and then there was this red tinsel carelessly wrapped around the tree in a completely non-orderly fashion... I knew these trees were Murray's doing.

      Murray now had a look on his face like he was completely shamed and embarrassed by his previous efforts. There were many other trees in that area of the shopping centre, decorated in the same fashion and so I told him off big time. There was one tree though that really stood out. It was a darker pine and it was beautifully decorated in a silver and mint colour scheme with no messy tinsel. I pointed to that tree and said to Murray, “Look at the one that Dreamy WB did”. I can't remember anything else about this dream.

      Dream 369 D - Fly With Me
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in Springvale in front of the Daniel's Donuts shop. There was also Mr G from my primary school and he was talking to some year 12 Killester girls about their upcoming exams. He said arrangements for most exams would stay the same but the biology exam had to be changed because something had happened to the biology teacher. I can't remember what else happened in that scene.

      In the next scene, I was now on the grounds of Camelot Rise Primary School which in the dream was a high school. It was after school time, classes had finished and so I was looking for WB. I thought I'd go to the side entrance first because that's where the buses usually come but I couldn't see her. I then realised that she may have been at the front entrance and so I rushed in that direction before she was due to leave. When I got there though, she wasn't there. In fact, everyone except her was there and they were all giving me dirty looks.

      The scene changed to me being in this unknown area but it somewhat felt close by to Jells park. I attached this yellow cape to my back and started flying around on the surrounding roads. I could soon feel the presence of the real WB nearby and so I slowly transformed into a giant and greeted WB when she came. She was as tiny as an ant in this dream. I invited her to hop onto my back so I could fly her around for a bit. As she was getting onto my cape, sitting on it like a hammock, that dream ended.

      Dream 369 E - Ridiculous VCE Curriculum
      I don't remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, my brother was in an unknown area and he was talking to no one in particular. He said that his workplace had given him a pay bonus, allowing him to re-enter year 12 VCE for a short amount of time so he could try for a better ATAR. Apparently, he elected to do his second attempt of year 12 at Mulgrave Primary School, which in this dream was a co-ed prep to year 12 school.

      The next scene occurred when he and I were home and I walked past him doing his art homework. I asked him about his year 12 and he said that he had so much homework. He stated that he couldn't pick the subjects and rather the school had picked them for him. He was doing Art, Vis Com, Math Methods, Further Maths and English. In my head I'm thinking, “Two folio subjects...!” He said that he had too much to do on his Vis Com homework. I asked him who his Vis Com teacher was and he said Mrs Parr.

      The last scene took place just in front of the school but he was talking to me this time rather than to nobody. I asked him if he was going to finish the whole year but he said that he couldn't; his workplace would only allow him to do one month of VCE. I thought that was logical otherwise the workplace would never get him back. The dream ended there.

      I am not joking when I say that it took me about 4 - 5 hours to write this all down properly. In case I lag in activity on DV (being only a few days mind you), my computer crashed almost 10 times yesterday, so I think it's almost time for a new one (this HP is 11 years old, older than my cat!). This is really weird, I only remember dreams 369 A, C and D this morning. I remembered B a couple of hours later and then I recalled that E existed only 1 hour ago!!

    2. Dream - Pretty In Plush Pink

      Date of Dream: MON 2 JUL - 2018



      Dream No. 365 - Pretty In Plush Pink

      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, I was at my house and next to me, a gigantic plush toy version of Murray appeared; his features were very accurate. At first, weird things were happening and I would throw Murray around carelessly. Eventually, I decided to go downstairs to my brothers bedroom.

      I was doing something with the plush Murray in my brother's bedroom but I have forgotten the specifics. I then walked to the area of the stairs and there was Minecraft water starting to accumulate on the tiles, intending to flood the bottom floor. I realised that wherever I threw Murray, he would change the direction of the flow of water based on wherever he landed. There was a specific way I wanted the water to go but no matter what I did, the water would not go in that direction.

      Eventually, I felt that I was treating Murray slightly harshly, so I bounced him off the tiles and attempted this time to grab him while standing on the stairs. It took a few tries but eventually, I grabbed him and pulled him up, then cradling him and carrying him up the stairs. We then ended up back in my bedroom and I was holding him tightly in bed for a while. I then woke up due to my dad's alarm going off in the dining room.

    3. Dream - Confidence Vs Vulnerability & Music Mongrels

      by , 06-29-2018 at 07:20 AM
      Date of Dream: FRI 29 JUN - 2018



      Dream No. 362 - Separated Sections

      Dream 362 A - Confidence Vs Vulnerability
      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, me, Sly and Bentley were in an unidentified area, in the safehouse. Sly was supposed to do a mission but as it involved interacting with someone, I was to come along as well. Apparently for the gang, I was the civil social expert. So I was standing behind Sly, who was smaller than me in this dream. I forgot what we said or did though. All characters looked and behaved as they would in Sly 2. The next job that Sly had was one that he did by himself.

      Then there was a job for Bentley. At first, he was going to do it independently but when I read that there was some interacting involved, I bolted out of the safehouse to join Bentley as I thought he'd need me for this one. Just as Bentley was about to start talking to the NPC, I stood and waved at the NPC. I could tell that if I wasn't there, Bentley would have struggled as he began with stuttering. After a few seconds though, I started to feel off in some way. I noticed that Sly and Bentley were smaller than me and so I didn't feel protected in any way.

      Although I trusted Sly and Bentley, I still felt physically vulnerable and exposed to the environment. I became anxious and tapped Bentley on his upper shell. As he turned around to face me, I said in a whispering tone, “I'm worried... Without Murray around, I don't feel safe”. For the first part of the dream, Murray was completely missing from the gang and there was this empty energy that I perceived throughout all dream scenes so far to prove this.

      The next dream scene though skipped straight to Murray doing a job on top of a blimp complex which somewhat resembled Arpeggio's Airship but wasn't exactly. His job was to silence some exterior alarm horns and while he was running around trying to locate the horns, the dream showed him carrying me around, securing me in place with his arms. I was pressed up against his chest with my head perched and looking backwards over one of his shoulders. Murray being physically bigger than me influenced my dream energy so that I now felt restful, protected and in peace. That's all I can remember for this dream.

      Dream 362 B - Music Mongrels
      I don't remember much about this dream. From where I can remember, I was in some completely unknown area. In fact, it felt like we were in my house but it was single story and Mr H was taking a VCE music class but with a lot more students than in real life. The class was arranging who would sing in the choir for the upcoming music competition. There was singing auditions and at first, my singing was actually terrible in this dream. But then I decided to sing Mamma Mia from ABBA and everyone looked spellbound, especially WB who looked really animated and had her jaw completely dropped wide open.

      Despite the good singing finally, everyone was going to sing in the competition... Except me. On the paper and clipboard, names were being written down in pencil. At first I thought to myself, “Alright...? I might be written on close to the end” but when I saw WB's name go on and not mine, that's when the odds seemed grim. I then saw the names go on in the reserve section who would only be singing if members in the first section were sick. There were four reserves and my name wasn't even written there. That's all I can remember for this dream.

      I was right about the fact that my mum would be constantly telling me to do things, therefore writing down dreams would be difficult; thankfully, I told her, "I'm on holidays, so I need some days off".

    4. Dream - Pinned To The Ground & We Almost Had Him & Return Of The Elements

      by , 06-26-2018 at 07:06 AM
      Date of Dream: TUE 26 JUN - 2018



      Dream No. 361 - Separated Sections

      Dream 361 A - Pinned To The Ground
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, the whole family was paying a visit to the newly renovated Glen Shopping Centre and this time, all the stores were open. I don't particularly remember all the stores we went into though. I can recall that the family had lunch there and we checked all the corridors.

      When leaving, we didn't take the car and so had to head over to the train station. The layout of Glen Waverley was distorted in this dream and so was the look of the train station. Although there was easy stair and ramp access, my parents were making out like there was no other option but to take the lift. My dad was forcefully declaring that I take the lift but I was having none of that, so I fled from the family.

      I was now in the air, hovering when I heard Dreamy WB's voice. She was telling me that Logan was nearby and to stop him from going any further. I thought to myself, “I'm gonna get him now”. I saw Logan in his typical yellow Jeffy T-shirt, walking alongside this other blonde guy. He didn't even notice me as I picked up speed in the air and then went down for an aerial tackle. The other guy gained a shocked facial expression and ran away in fright.

      Meanwhile, I had Logan pinned to the ground while waiting for Dreamy WB to physically show up. I placed both my hands on each of his shoulders, looking him in the eyes like “you're not going anywhere”. At first, he tried to move his head upward slightly but eventually just gave up, having a look of emptiness, embarrassment and defeat on his face. The dream ended before Dreamy WB could appear.

      Dream 361 B - We Almost Had Him (Lucid Dream 21)
      The dream started and I had appeared in the driveway of my house. For some reason, I was aware of my environment straight away although no reality checks were performed (I don't use WILD in waking life either). I said to myself, “I almost had him!”. The first thing I did was to immediately call out for Dreamy WB as I started walking down the court. I stood just in front of the neighbour's house as I called so I get could get a good view down the hill.

      It didn't take long before I caught sight of Dreamy WB walking up the hill. She was wearing her real counterpart's school uniform. Her physical appearance was clean and accurate, her hair styled straight and in a low bun, only her hair was more red than usual. As she came up to me, she had her arms spread out and she gave me a tight hug. We then released each other but after a few seconds, I felt like I wanted to hug her again. I spread my arms out and she gently put hers around me.

      When we released the second time, I said to her, “We almost had him!”, based on the fact that I consciously remembered the last dream. In a soothing tone, she told me that she would take me up to the oval near the school and we would catch him there. Just as she was getting into position and I was getting ready to board her lap, I woke up.

      Dream 361 C - Return Of The Elements
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in this random, unknown suburban area. Apparently, it was some kind of program for socialisation and slight amounts of spiritual training. I would explore the streets of the suburb but as I got further and further, the streets looked different and I got lost at some points. The group ended up at their first camping site down the hill in a slanted front yard of some random house.

      A boy there had a cauldron cooking over some wood but there was another boy further down the hill that couldn't turn his cauldron on. I went down there and I said to him, “there is another way to turn on the stove, hence I will demonstrate the element of fire that I possess”; the boy was quite shy and didn't really say anything. It felt like I was just breathing a constant stream of invisible, hot mist but I could see the flames appearing on his cauldron and soon, it was at hot as the other one was with the cauldron surrounded by a full, raging orange fire.

      In a later part of the dream, I had asked some of the kids in the group if I had shown them all of my elements. I then remember I had already shown them fire via the cauldron and also electricity by powering up the pole. I then looked up to the roof of the house and on it was some weird spinning decoration. It would spin for a while and then it would slow down and stop, the process would keep repeating itself.

      I said I wouldn't demonstrate ice as it would immediately stop the spinning object and shatter it. I said that even if spinning at top speed, earth would slow it down and grind it to a stop. I went just below the ledge of the roof and breathed the earth element upwards, releasing green pulsating energy. As the object was slowing down, I asked the group, “do you any of you notice an affect?”. One of the boys said they didn't and so I thought to myself, “damn it, I must have matched the sequence too much”.

      I was then in the car with my mum and we were driving back towards home but still in unfamiliar areas. She asked me how I felt about the school holiday program. I said to her that it was good because they let you by yourself and do whatever you want rather than bossing you around all the time. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      I'm on holidays now and so I can fully focus on achieving dream tasks. I decided to get a move on and start looking at Dreamy WB disciplining Logan as first proposed a couple of months ago. I spent a really hard slog over the few days, writing heaps in my diary and reciting catch phrases before going to sleep. Then the dream decided to get in the way by prohibiting me to summon Dreamy WB. Before bed last night, I used a technique that I've used before; writing a letter to the Awareness Behind The Dream (ABTD) and it worked, I saw progress (as seen in Dream 361 A and B). It was fun to write the end of Dream 361 A, I find it absolutely hilarious how the dream had set me to fly and then ambush him myself, honing in on him like a missile!

      I'll either work towards getting him done in by a dream guide, which is the next step to complete the penalty. Or I'll work on sending a dream guide to pay Dawn a visit, talking to her and checking to see if her in-dream self says she's okay. Only Dreamy WB can execute Logan's penalty. Either Dreamy WB or Murray can go and see Dawn.

    5. Dream - From Venice To Melbourne & Lost In An Array Of Buildings & Brother And Sister At University

      Dream No. 360 - Separated Sections

      Dream 360 - From Venice To Melbourne
      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in Venice with the exact same graphic settings as in the game of Sly 3. I was looking for the Cooper gang but I forgot what attached intention I had. There was some little cat and owl guards near by and as I look down, I discover I'm holding a little plush toy of Murray. I leant the plush Murray between my shoulder and the side of my head, cuddling up to it that way as I attempted to replicate the real Murray's punching techniques on these guards.

      From this scene onwards, if felt almost as if though I was living in waking life. The next scene took place at my house, starting off in the bathroom. I have the hair iron out and I'm trying to style my hair as well as having a bunch of clothes on the towel rack, working out what to wear. I look in the mirror and my hair colour is slightly lighter than usual. The clothes I was wearing was a burgundy dress with a light yellow belt and a mauve coloured cardigan on the top. I was actually doing all this stylish stuff in the bathroom because Murray was due at my house any minute. My idea was that even if he turned up, I didn't want him seeing me until I was completely ready to shine!

      The next thing I did was going to look at what sandals to wear. My dad called out to me all the way from the stairs, “Karla! He's here!” and I was thinking to myself “Okay... Better hurry up...”, I was far from ready. I looked down at the sandals and they were plain brown chiffon sandals; I was hoping for the same type but with white polka dots on them. Since I didn't have much time left, I just put the plain sandals on. I then thought to myself, “Forget this iron”, and instead, furiously brushed my hair into some orderly do.

      As I walked out, I found out that Murray was waiting for me in the front room, talking to my dad. Murray was sitting on the armchair next to the window and oddly, he wasn't a hippo. Instead, he was a real human who had his speech converted into an Aussie accent. He still did have a large frame though. His appearance was a light brown medium haircut but all his hair was spiky and sticking up. He was wearing thick, black, square-framed glasses which I consciously knew represented his usual square goggles in hippo form. For clothes, he was wearing a thick black coat over a plain white t-shirt as well as black jeans; I've forgotten the type of shoes.

      Murray wasn't the only visitor. I looked to the fireplace and standing there was a human replica of The Guru! Murray must have brought him along as company. The human guru had dark skin, black short hair... Not too short, only slightly shorter than Murray's. He wore a different black coat with a white t-shirt underneath, and dark blue jeans. He resembled some middle-eastern looking guy.

      Back to what was actually happening in the dream, I walk over to Murray, sitting on the armchair and we shake hands. In this dream, I was very informal and distant towards him, treating him more like a communal family guest rather than a personal dream guide. I then waved to The Guru over at the fireplace and he said hello back to me. For a short while, I sat on the armchair next to Murray and we spoke about various different topics. In one topic, we mentioned something and I knew that The Guru was all for these acts of humanity, so I said something to him like, “it can save the environment!”; I could actually feel my eyes light up as I said that. After talking for a while, my dad came back into the room and he ended up talking to Murray, so I went out to see my mum about the food preparation.

      We ended up in my bedroom and I could see weirdly that my mum had the big birthday cake for Murray in glad-wrap, on a plate, stored on top of my bed sheets! My mum originally told me we weren't going to have Schnitz but now she said she got the days wrong; it was Saturday today and so we were going to have Schnitz tomorrow (being Sunday). She then told me that as well as Murray's, we were also going to celebrate my dad's and my birthday now because they would stop selling the sticky date cakes in September. She told me to take the cake to the fridge in my study room.

      I went to the study to open the fridge and I got the shock of my life... A cake was missing out of the previously perfect tessellation! There was only one guess that came from my mind; Murray had come in here and taken an entire cake when no one was around. I thought to myself, “Although he is this informal, Aussie human, some things just never change”. Then I thought to myself, “How am I supposed to put the birthday cake in there when he's gonna come and take that as well? I might as well just put it in a few minutes before we're supposed to have it”. I then devised a solution; “Actually, I might as well just stay in here for the rest of the day and protect the fridge”. The dream then showed me typing at my computer (just like what I'm doing now in real life!).

      I was then on the couch in my sitting room but still keeping an eye on the study when my dad came up to me and started talking about what I might want to sing for Murray later on in the weekend. For once, I actually felt lost and didn't know what I wanted to sing. We went through a list of songs but for some reason, I didn't like any of them. I then said something like, “I wasn't prepared... Unfortunately I might not be able to sing anything this time around”. Although I was the one who said I wasn't ready, I was still slightly gutted.

      For the next part of the dream, I was still in the sitting room but I was talking to my mum in the kitchen. I said something like, “Hmm, dad and Murray, I think they're finished”. My mum was like “Good I'm glad, it was so annoying hearing them all the time, it's just that he talks too much (she was referring to Murray)”. My mum emphasised a few times in this scene that she thought Murray talks too much. It was only at the end that I started to agree too that he was a chatterbox.

      The family were now at a shopping centre but neither Murray nor The Guru were there, I thought to myself that they must have elected to stay at home. We sat on a big table in the food court and my and brother and I went off to find some lunch for ourselves. We went to this so called Mexican place where my brother got some fajitas or tortillas but I saw some chips with gravy poured on them. When the lady put the chips in the cup though, there was a ridiculous amount of gravy poured on top of them; the chips were literally submerged under. I also got the minimal amount of salad with one lettuce leaf sticking out of the gravy.

      I walked back with my weird cup of gravy and when I got to the table, my mum's friend AV gave me a really dirty look and walked away in a huff for no real reason. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      Dream 360 B - Lost In An Array Of Buildings
      I don't remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, I was in this building that was claiming to be a nightclub but didn't really look like a nightclub and it was day time as well. I was in the foyer and I could see WB's friends heading into the main front room for a party. I was waiting for WB but she never turned up and so I left the building to try and find her. By the way, I was flying for this scene.

      When I was outside, I was on the ground and walking. There were so many buildings around these streets that it almost felt claustrophobic. I was walking around but saw no signs of WB anywhere. Eventually, I tried heading back for the so called nightclub building but the buildings in the surrounding area would keep changing on me and so eventually, I felt like I was lost. I said to myself to keep walking though and that if I ever truly got lost, I would call for Dreamy WB.

      I ended up in this nature-like area, reminding me like I was up in the grassy mountains somewhere. As I was walking on the stone track, I came across TAFE classmate CJo and I was weirdly thinking “what the heck are you doing here?”. I was then on my own and thought to myself, “This area looks so nice, I should call Dreamy WB so she can come and see this”. So I called out for Dreamy WB but as I was doing so, the most annoying thing happened. The dream would make these really loud noises at me, like the clanging of pots and pans, in an attempt to stop me and waking up. I stop for a while and then decided to try again. Still, the dream made this really loud clanging noise which this time woke me up.

      Dream 360 - Brother And Sister At University
      I don't remember much of this dream. From where I do remember, I was enrolled for a degree at Monash University in Clayton and it was my first day. I had yet to attend the seminar, it would start at 12:15 PM. I thought to myself, “Who cares if I'm a bit late? I'll probably turn up at 12:30 PM”. The next time I looked at my watch, it said 12:40 PM and so I said to myself, “Stuff it, I'm not going”.

      I walked into this communal area and I saw my brother sitting on ledge, eating his lunch. An Indian lady approached me and told me that my brother had applied for rest breaks in the middle of the seminar but he had to sign out with her in order to do so. That's all I can remember for this dream.

      Dream 360 A was really fun to write. As I stated in the dream description, a lot of Dream 360 A flowed in a very relatable and almost exact sequence to real life. My house wasn't distorted in any way and a lot of the things my family did for Murray in-dream, we do with our guests in real life. Like earlier this month, my brother's friend and his twin brother visited us and we gave them an early birthday cake as well as me singing for them. The only difference is that RK and BK didn't hack into the fridge when I wasn't there!!

      I spent an entire day yesterday (I'm not joking when I say entire) using techniques to try and get a dream task done. It's been nearly 2 months since I placed the intention for Dreamy WB to do something to Logan in order to indirectly penalise him for his YouTube content (In-fact it will actually be 2 months tomorrow). I recited it endless times last night. It always happens... When I finally have the motivation to do something, the dream stops Dreamy WB from showing up, it's damn annoying. So now I have to plough through multiple days, undergoing a recovery period with Murray to get her back.

      IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Plans have changed for me. I was originally going to start my Bachelor of Accounting in July but instead, I have decided to defer for six months; just don't want to be with the current sour classmates anymore. So that being said, if spellbee2 or other DV users aren't running big comps, I might keep rolling them over just to keep the forum active if anyone wants to work towards any goals.

    6. Dream - Stubborn Dream Laws

      by , 05-17-2018 at 04:52 AM
      Date of Dream: THU 17 MAY - 2018



      Dream No. 334 - Stubborn Dream Laws

      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in the suburb of Endeavour Hills. My mum and I were driving to the shopping centre but all of a sudden, the car stopped and wouldn't work anymore. I got out of the car and started pushing it along the road but as I did so, a massive amount of traffic was coming at me. There was this small dirt path at the side of the road that I decided to go down instead. It was an interesting sight because this path actually took me through a lot of nature and there was a big playground along the way though. I eventually reached the shops though.

      The next scene also took place at Endeavour Hills but it was taking place as a sub-scene. There was this holographic board in the sky like a selection roster for a custom Super Smash Bros. Tournament. After I looked through all the characters, I found out that Murray wasn't there. I decided that I wanted to replace Wario because he had this smug look on his face like he would cause some trouble towards me. There was a problem though; each time I placed Murray on, Wario would come back, Murray would be removed and Wario would laugh.

      Eventually, I worked out what was wrong. I actually clicked on Murray's icon which was in a separate area and it something like that I had to customise it. I opened the customisation menu and a few options came up; all the options made Murray look really distorted though. I picked one and he was finally, permanently placed on the roster. I discovered that Sly was already on the roster but now there was an extra spare spot, so I thought I'd go and put Bentley on as well. In the dream, Bentley's image wasn't too distorted. The only change with him was that he had a big black moustache in the shape of Ned Flanders from The Simpsons.

      Later on, my mum and I were back at our current house. I looked down at my phone and saw that Murray had left me a message, his ID picture was of his Sly 4 appearance. He said something like “Thanks to you and your mom for rescuing me earlier”. Note how he used the American spelling in his message and that he not only thanked me, but my mum as well. That's all I can remember about that scene.

      In the next scene, I was at a version of my TAFE that looked absolutely nothing like it does in real life. My friend JS was one of the big grassed areas with her teacher aid MK and they were playing a game of mini cricket. I then walked passed one of the classrooms and saw SHig teaching a class. I forgot what else happened in that scene.

      I then left that Chisholm campus and moved to another one to suggest that I was now due to start my bachelors degree in accounting. The first thing I thought to myself was “oh no, there'll be nothing but lifts”. I went to examine the back of the building and I was pleasantly surprised, there were two staircases glued to the outside of it. I then went into the building and saw that there was not only lifts but a ramp as well.

      One of the staff came up to me and greeted me; a middle aged lady with medium length, bleached blonde hair. We ended up in the bathrooms, on the way to the classrooms and there were these three boys in there. I could tell that they were causing some trouble as they were standing on the lower step and the lady was on the higher step, yelling at all four of us. But I stepped up to the same level as her and innocently smiled at her. She then said to the boys that they should follow the example of the “lovely young lady”.

      The lady then walked all of us towards the classroom and I eventually was stopped by a sight. Taking a lift was compulsory to get to this classroom. Just as the lady was about to open it, I hesitated and then said, “please wait while I try and do something. I promise I'll be quick”. I then looked around carefully and said something like, “Dreamy WB or Murray, could one of you please come and take me in the lift?”. Neither of them responded.

      I became scared and vulnerable and said to the lady, “Sorry but I can't attend classes today”. I then left and walked out the building the way I came in. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      My dreams are giving me a run for my money at the moment. No matter how hard I try, the stupid dream won't let me have access to any dream guide! It's time I wrote a letter to the Awareness Behind The Dream again and got to the bottom of whatever's going on. At first, I thought it was just tricks on Dreamy WB but now it's Murray as well? That's just poor... And he's even just barely joined the dream guide team!

    7. Dream - She Sings On X Factor & Finding A Friend (+Side Note)

      Date of Dream: SUN 15 APR - 2018



      Dream No. 310 - Separated Sections

      Dream 310 A - She Sings On X-Factor
      I don't remember much of this dream at all. The only scene that I can remember is being in some random unknown place and seeing this huge parade of people walking past in the building. I caught sight of WB who was dressed very eccentrically. I made an attempt to catch up to her before she left and it was a success, as I caught up to her parading beside EGor as her line partner. Although she was the real WB, she had behaviour patterns more common to Dreamy WB.

      Her hair was styled really dramatically with her afro being multicoloured... More specifically, patches of aqua, white and then this gold glitter sprinkling over it. I asked her what she was doing and she gave me a lengthy explanation on how she got onto X-Factor, I forgot specifically what she said though. She was very friendly towards me for this scene. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      Dream 310 B - Finding A Friend
      I don't remember much of this dream either. From what I can remember, I started off in my bedroom of my old house. I remember that I was doing something and my parents would keep catching me out, I forgot what exactly it was I was doing though. That scene repeated a few times with a few different variations of me running away from them.

      I then ended up in the backyard of my old house. I have completely forgotten the intention of this scene. Faintly, I recall that there was this character that I know nothing about, which was going to my ally for the first part of this scene... Classified as the first world (reference to areas from Mario games). Once I had completed the tasks set for me in that scene, it was time to move onto the second world, which was weirdly though sill taking place in the old house backyard

      For the second world, I received another animated character as my companion but yet again forgot who or what it was. After completion of the second world, I spoke to myself for a short while and within that speech, there was a tiny bit of reference to getting Murray back. I eventually figured that I couldn't get Murray back yet at this time and there were no stranger characters coming to help, so I thought to myself, “what do I do?”.

      The next world I went to wasn't in my own home and rather was somewhere completely unknown. There characters as I said before weren't appearing anymore and it wasn't the right time to get Murray back yet. I decided that it was time to call Dreamy WB for assistance in this world. As she was appearing (in her Oktoberfest outfit), I woke up.



      Dream Trophies Achieved:
      - None



      I've been having some very inspiring thoughts over a couple of nights and have even done some slight planning if the idea does come to fruition. I'd like to host a competition for the month of May; it still rewards lucid dreamers more but it is also friendly to non-lucid dreams and is mainly the focus on encouraging consistent recall and increasing overall quality of dreams. It's one where everyone will be able to score decent points and people are not heavily disadvantaged if they can't get lucid over a long period of time. (criteria is for instance, the same task but a lucid dreamer might get 6 points for it, whereas a non-lucid/standard dreamer gets 3) I am thinking, there will be teams for this and there will be the Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced leagues based on lucid criteria to keep with the DreamViews competition tradition. May will be my chance (June as a last resort) because I will be busy with a work experience placement at the end of June and first part of July. Then after that, my university degree starts which will gradually cram my free time as the term progresses. I'd really love to do something like this... Tell me what you think.

    8. Dream - House Full Of Magic

      Date of Dream: WED 4 APR - 2018



      Dream No. 304 - House Full Of Magic

      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, I was at my house in the dining room. I forgot who it was but I was showing someone that I could make things appear and disappear. At first, the dining room table had nothing on it but then when I clicked my fingers, this weird vine-like thing appeared on the centre of it as a supposed decoration. I then clicked my fingers again and it disappeared, meaning that there was now once again nothing on the table.

      Yet again I clicked my fingers but this time, the situation became ugly. A small, light-green coloured balloon appeared in the right-corner of my vision and gradually swelled in size as it sat glued onto my cheek. This balloon had a negative effect as when it increased in size, I found my breathing to become more and more difficult. Eventually, I ended up really badly gasping for air as I tried to express a general call for help.

      The response was that two small men appeared in the back corner of the dining room, looking half-way between a real life person and a cartoon character... I found out that it was Mario and Luigi and they were the size of approximately my drink bottle. Luigi had a concerned look on his face as he and Mario literally jumped of the cabinet they were initially on, landed on the table and started their attempt to pry the balloon off my cheek. As they would pull though, the balloon made it so that I would almost stop breathing and so getting off without me suffocating would be a lengthy process. Eventually though, Mario and Luigi did get the balloon off.

      I was by myself again when I continued over into the kitchen. When I was there, I saw an old man that looked half-way between my deceased grandfather and Luigi with grey hair. The old man was slightly bigger than taller than me, bending over to pick me up and hold me in a hugging position, my feet dangling off the ground. I ultimately predicted to him be to be approximately a third bigger than me.

      The dream felt like it was missing something which I soon figured to be the atmosphere of Dreamy WB's presence. I imagined as if though Dreamy WB was in place of the old man and that's when something interesting started happening. The figure holding me would physically alternate between that of the old man, and then Dreamy WB (in her Oktoberfest appearance). After a few alternations, ending with Dreamy WB, I wake up.

    9. Dream - Flying With The Traffic

      by , 03-29-2018 at 02:59 AM
      Date of Dream: THU 29 MAR - 2018



      Dream No. 301 - Flying With The Traffic

      I don't remember most of this dream. Of what I can remember, my family and I were in the car park of Stud Park shopping centre. Our extended family was over as well because it was Easter. We were going to go back to our house for dinner. My dad said there wasn't enough room for everyone in the car and so I said that I could fly home. Both my parents gave me a funny look but then I showed them by getting into a “hoverboard” position. I was standing upright, knees slightly bent, like I was on some invisible hoverboard.

      They went for their car and that's when I decided to start heading for home. Although I was flying as my own self, my travelling methods felt like that of a car. I would always aim for one lane of the road, which at the start, I was flying in the left lane. I was afraid though that I would be too slow for the traffic and that a car would come up and hit me, potentially knocking me down and running me over.

      At one point, all these public transport buses were appearing and starting to hog the left lane. I could have stayed in the left lane but then I felt I would have been going to slow. So just like driving, I checked the other lanes and then went over into the middle lane to overtake. That's all that I can remember about this dream.

      Type of Dream: Non-Lucid
      Dream Guide: None
      Emergency Team: None
      Eligible For Competition Points: Yes

      Points:
      Non-Lucid Fragment (0.5)



      NOTE 1: I figure I've actually still been doing points incorrectly; a full lucid dream is 1.0 isn't it? So I've got to go back to some of my previous dreams and fix the points for them. Total points won't be calculated in this journal until I go back and fix my previous ones.

      NOTE 2: TAFE is done but I am sadly in the middle of a massive dry spell, therefore hindering the potential of competition scoring. Dreamy WB has been absent for a lot of dreams! Dreamy WB's absence has unfortunately also increased my general vulnerability in real life. Now that the tests are done, I need to work hard to get her back, or at least have another dream guide place me on dream-life support until she gets back.



      As of 1:12 PM (AEDT)

      Total Points Overall = 43.0

      Maybe in order to get Dreamy WB back, I need to go to Murray again. You guys haven't heard from him in a while... Because he screwed me over when I had a mid-term Advanced Diploma test. I thought I'd experiment with what it was for him to take me into a test, so Dreamy WB was there but she just sat back while Murray was being the little voice in my head. Unfortunately when I got the results, I found out I only just passed with 53%. So when I got back home, I "told" Murray to not come back until Advanced Diploma was finished for the term and that was actually a good choice I think. Dreamy WB had me independently for the rest of the term, just like it was at the start, and I got back to getting 70s and 80s. Murray's personality isn't altered at all, so it was the principle of that he's the brawn of the gang and therefore the least brainy. But now that Dreamy WB's gone missing for a whopping third time and I've got a massive dry spell, not being able to recall a lot of dreams; Murray may need to come back now because he was good as acting as a substitute in the past... Just not sitting tests with me.

    10. Dream - The Dangerous Coast & Disgrace Of A TAFE Teacher & Birthday Girl (+Side Note)

      by , 03-16-2018 at 06:28 AM
      Date of Dream: FRI 16 MAR - 2018



      Dream No. 295 - Separated Sections

      Dream 295 A - The Dangerous Coast
      I don't remember how the dream started. From what I can remember, I was in some grassed area, like a simulation of World 1 in the Mario games but forgot what I was specifically doing. There I saw some Mario characters; I specifically remember Waluigi and Bowser. I also forgot what they were doing. I did eventually realise altogether that I was in a game myself.

      I then did some exploring by myself and eventually met up with my mum. We ended up in my version of World 2 which ended up being the beach. We walked down to the coastline and the water there was the bluest you'd ever see, almost like the colour of some gel aqua toothpaste. At first the waves were calm but as the dream progressed, the waves started getting bigger and bigger and for the first time in the dream, I was feeling scared.

      It felt like the waves were going to come up to me and wash me away. So as the waves were getting increasingly bigger, I would inch more and more backwards, while my mum did the smart thing and was already standing on the grassed area. The waves did reach my mum though and all her personal belongings went spilling out of her handbag. I managed to save some stuff but the most important item, her purse, was now washed very far out and I was panicking.

      For the first time in this dream, I screamed out “Miss T!” in the distressed, most loudest voice I could. A holographic version of Dreamy WB appeared and she stretched an arm out, actually elongating it in this dream, and literally reached under, swatting my mum's purse out of the water, it flying sky-high and then landing on the grass in front of my mum. I have forgotten what else happened in this scene.

      My mind is blank on how the next scene started but I can recall what happened in some parts of it. I was planning to go somewhere but had come across a huge hill that I didn't want to expend my energy on. Once again, I called out “Miss T!” further explaining to the awareness why I didn't want to take myself up the hill. I had to call for her a few times this time before she appeared.

      Eventually, Dreamy WB did appear in a holographic form, slightly larger than me, but it was a male equivalent (so this must be a Mr. T instead). He gave a smile in the same shape like the female Dreamy WB would and his teeth were in the same neat arrangement. Also, his eyes, nose, and every other feature of him were in the same position and the same shape of the female Dreamy WB. The only thing different about him was the men's haircut, the manly prickles of his skin and the fact that he put on just a little bit of weight. He was wearing a red chequered shirt with plain blue jeans and brown casual shoes.

      The male Dreamy WB acted really nice and gentlemanly towards me. I noticed that when he spoke, it was the same speech patterns of the female Dreamy WB, only his voice was different, like some deepening audio filter was in effect. He patted his hands on his thighs twice, inviting me to come and sit on his lap. I climbed up onto him and parked myself, only sitting on one of his legs as he was larger than I thought... So theoretically, a second person could have ridden on him as his left leg was still available.

      It was interesting because this time, he didn't use his arms to lock me in place. He did talk to me a for a bit while we were still at the bottom of the hill but I forget what he said. I do remember though that he laughed and rubbed his hand on my shoulder (the one that was furthest away from him). Then he started to ascend and I think the reason for him not locking me in place this time is because he was going very slowly, I never fell off him though and rather stayed pretty still the whole time. Part way through ascending, he looks at me, smiling again, and says “It's just like an elevator”.

      I think he was referring to how Dreamy WB is always helping me face my fear and he, as the male version, retains the same memories and thoughts of the female Dreamy WB. They are the same person but the dream just placed a gender effect upon them. So he was hinting how he was ascending just like an elevator typically would, the only difference being slant-ways up a hill and not vertically via a shaft. Just as we got to the top of the hill, that dream ended.

      Dream 295 B - Disgrace Of A TAFE Teacher
      I don't remember how this dream started. From where I do remember, I was at my house but I forgot what I was doing there. The dream then changed so I was at this random house, supposedly for a TAFE class but the instructor is no one that I know of in real life. The class is taking place in a bedroom with many beds in it. One person I remember well was JLy and she received some sort of face mask that had writing on it, apparently it was the things that identify her strengths. It said things like “Chinese”, “Works past required hours”, “High grades”, “Sleeps well”, etc.

      I picked up another mask and I knew it was talking about my strengths. The things that were written on my mask were things like “Beautiful figure”, “Very prayerful”, “Powerful mind”. As I was about halfway through reading what was on my mask, the teacher comes and whips it away from me at the speed of lightning. She has this aggravated look on her face and says something like “You don't deserve that mask. The only thing you'll be seeing is God's shadow” and in the dream, I knew that she was talking about a dark side of God.

      I was shocked at what she did that I decided to walk out on her at the class; I now thought that was evil and that she was a creep. As I was just outside the bedroom, I whispered to myself, “Geez, I may have shown some disrespect towards God in the past but that is just the lowest of anything I've seen!”. I was out of that house as quick as possible so I wouldn't get into trouble by anyone in there. I thought to myself, “I'd better get out of here before they know I've gone”.

      When I was out of the house, I flew past the windows, only to discovered that the red-haired teacher lady was violently peering through one of them, which gave me the fright of my life. I knew she was after me now and so I started calling “Miss T!”, as I scampered away from the property as fast as possible. No matter how fast I went, I always had this internalised fear that the lady would be coming after me. I called for Dreamy WB/Miss T quite a lot of times but nothing was happening.

      It felt like I was in my local area when I was outside the lady's house, so I knew which streets to go down to try and get away from it all. I went up the hill towards the school, still desperately calling “Miss T!”. Someone appears but it wasn't who I thought it would be. It was a little chubby girl, still African but I could tell she was a different person, in fact she was just a child! She had her hair tied back in a ponytail, all set in tiny braided strands and she was wearing thick black glasses. She goes to me, “She isn't available at the moment, I'm Miss M” (Miss M was her actual name, not an abbreviation) as she spread her arms out to hug me.

      There was some relief in having Miss M appear to help me but after I continued on my way, the problems weren't gone. It subconsciously felt like the lady was hot on my tail again. Although I didn't want to, it felt like I was going towards the vicinity of the house again. Once there in the front yard, the lady was violently looking at me through the window again. Again, I screamed “Miss T!” as I quickly changed direction in an attempt to fly away as fast as I could.

      I was dog-paddling in the lower heights of the sky. At one point, I thought I was getting away. I was only flying in one direction but for some weird reason, I was coming towards the house again... Kind of like the idea of the endless stairs in Super Mario 64. I was now screaming louder than ever, “Miss T!!!!!!!”. Still nothing but I am not giving up. Still not being able to escape the perimeters of the house, I scream, “Miss T! Give me a greater distance!”. This time, she actually appears but as she does, I am on my way to waking up.

      Dream 295 C - Birthday Girl
      I don't remember much of this dream. From what I can remember, my family and I were shopping somewhere in Ferntree Gully but I forgot what we bought. The dream then moved to my other grandparents' house where we were having some sort of family gathering. There was some sort of competition taking place over there where we had to make something original and my dad was the official judge. I made something weird with a lunch container, some foil, and a few strips of plasticine clay. At first he said it wasn't original enough but when he saw the clay, he accepted my entry.

      We were then all in the sitting and I thought to myself that I wasn't dressed as well as I could be... I looked a bit scruffy for my usual standards. I decided what I was going to wear and it ended up being a pine-green dress with a cream coloured belt and some green earrings. I went into one of the bedrooms that had a mirror to put my earrings on.

      My grandma from my dad's side came into the bedroom to see what I was going. She mentioned something about my birthday but I forgot exactly what it was. She then put a little bag next to me and it was presents from the grandparents. When my grandma left the room, I started to examine what was in it. I was amazed with what they gave me. One present was this entire rainbow pack of jewellery making beads that they had found at Coles. I can't remember what happened after that.



      Dream Trophies Achieved:

      - None



      I have signed up for the Lucid dreaming competition, which will be starting from the next dream. During the space of the 2 - 2.5 weeks (how ever long the competition runs for, there will be a counter at the bottom of my journals to help with points and just basic aspects. NOTE: This dream is not a part of the competition period but here is a counter below for this dream as a sample:


      Dream 295 A:
      Type Of Dream: Non-Lucid
      Dream Guide: Dreamy WB/Miss T
      Emergency Team: None
      Eligible For Competition Points: No

      Dream 295 B:
      Type Of Dream: Non-Lucid
      Dream Guide: Dreamy WB/Miss T
      Emergency Team: None
      Eligible For Competition Points: No

      Dream 295 C:
      Type of Dream: Non-Lucid
      Dream Guide: None
      Emergency Team: None
      Eligible For Competition Points: No



      Below is just a general sample counter not relating to any of my dreams so far but what it would look like in the time of the competition:

      Dream xxx:
      Type of Dream: Lucid
      Dream Guide: None
      Emergency Team: Sly
      Eligible For Competition Points: Yes



      Just a bit of an insight (as this is my first competition) as to how my in-dream family are going to help me out. I have selected a panel of three dream guides and a panel of three emergency members. The dream guides will act as normal and will be able to gain points if there are any special tasks for dream guides. The emergency team members can act like dream guides, however, they cannot score points for me when it comes to any dream guide tasks. The main role of the emergency team is to help me out if I am facing a "sudden death" or "no turn-back scenario" and none of the dream guides are available. My self journal rule is that I am only allowed to call one (or more) of the emergency team as a last resort.

      Dream Guides:
      1. Dreamy WB/Miss T
      2. Murray
      3. Noah

      Emergency Team:
      1. Sly
      2. Bentley
      3. Logan

      So for instance, with the summoning task: If I am in a dire situation and I call out "Dreamy WB!", that's 10 points (only if she successfully appears). But if I am in a dire situation and I call "Logan!", he can help me but his contribution will only score 5 points as per a normal DC. In summary, the emergency team are there for when things go horribly bad, even with matters outside competition scoring parameters. Think of the emergency team like Technical Support.

      In the future, during the competition, I may improve the counter the show points and other side aspects but for now, the above counters are how they'll be formatted for my initial run.

      Now, my fellow team-mates, since I don't know anyone from DreamViews very well, tell me some aspects of your real life appearance or I'll just assume an appearance for you if I do complete any team challenges.

    11. Dream - Shopping Centre Scramble & Confusing Instagram (+Side Note)

      by , 03-11-2018 at 02:48 AM
      Date of Dream: SUN 11 MAR - 2018



      Dream No. 291 - Separated Sections

      Dream 291 A - Shopping Centre Scramble
      There isn't much that I remember about this dream. From what I can remember, I was in some unknown shopping centre with my dad and my brother but I forgot what we were doing there. There was discussion about going to stay at a family friend's place from my dad's side. In some parts of this dream, there was a sub-scene that was playing that suggested that we were living at our old house and on some occasions, Dreamy WB would be there to help me with something. I do remember her appearance but not what she did in the sub-scene. She her had hair down and straightened and she was wearing a charcoal coloured zipper jacket and tracksuit pants, as well as black canvas shoes.

      It was near the end of the dream when we were driving to the family friend's place which was somewhere in the countryside. My brother was the main person in this scene but once again, I forgot what specifically happened. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      Dream 291 B - Confusing Instagram
      I can only remember a bit about this dream as well. I was lying in my bed, scrolling through Instagram on my phone. As I scrolled through, I saw some pictures from WB's account. The next picture I saw really caught my eye as it was a beautiful, glamorous version of WB, not only that but she looked so pure. When I looked at the account name of where that picture came from, I soon realised that Dreamy WB had an Instagram account as well. Dreamy WB's appearance was her hair a bit shorter than usual but straightened with a slight waviness to it. She was wearing some dark pink, sort of pale lipstick as well as this multicoloured gown in a pastel colour spectrum, including white.

      I then continued scrolling down and the rest of the pictures were from the real WB's account. I had to look twice at this picture as well because the furniture in WB's living room (in the dream) was exactly the same as mine. The only difference was that the living room was laid out differently. The photo had shown all her friends (but not her) sitting in a circle and that's all the details I can remember.

      As I was scrolling through Instagram, once again, a sub-scene was playing where I was rehearsing singing the song “Mamma Mia” by ABBA. I had repeated some lines of the song a few times in order to get the technique right. The only problem was that with one of the lines, instead of making it better, the dream was distorting it. Then in the sub-scene, I started writing on a piece of paper, lines like Bart Simpson would write if he broke the school rules. The repeated lines I wrote were, “Have Dreamy WB chasten YouTube over Logan's losses”. Half way through writing one of the lines, I was woken up due to excessive noise in the house.



      Dream Trophies Achieved:

      - None



      I haven't been recording many dreams lately because they're under a dry spell at the moment. Dreamy WB was missing for the past few nights, I just got her back last night. About 3 days ago, I set myself a dream task and the description/instruction I wrote was in fact "Have Dreamy WB chasten YouTube over Logan's losses". I'm always looking at what SML posts and unfortunately, there are many videos where he states that YouTube is wrecking him at the moment. First of all, I'm not the type of person that likes spamming pages with complaints and petitions. Secondly, I'm all the way at the opposite end of the globe so I'm not close by to support him. And thirdly, helicopter parents means no possible actions in real life or risk a war. So I've found a way around all three inhibiting factors with the addition of no real life harm being induced. I thought it would be an extraordinarily radical idea to see what disciplinary marvel Dreamy WB can cook up. Unfortunately, when I set the task on the 8th, that's when the dull, dry spells hit me. I only regained some control last night, so I need to stay dedicated so Dreamy WB can reach the YouTube HQ in time, before Logan's channel is actually cooked and beyond repair in real life. I reckon, if this dream is epic enough, I might actually publish the relevant section extract to Logan or Chilly, just so they can have a laugh.

    12. Dream - Bail Operation In The Grove (+Side Note)

      Date of Dream: SUN 25 FEB - 2018



      Dream No. 286 - Bail Operation In The Grove

      I don't remember much of this dream. From what I can remember, I was in my old but I forgot what was going on in there. My mum wasn't happy with me for some reason and do she ended up locking me up inside a big cage in the front yard. In the cage with me were all there random plush toys that I thought could come to life when I spoke to them. For most of the dream, I was trying to find a way to escape as well as saving the others in the cage with me.

      There were four plush toys in the cage with me, I said to them that I was going to take the two baby plush toys when I escaped and I would come back for the adult ones later. The two baby plush that I picked up resembled the appearance of WB a lot. So I got out of the cage as fast as I could and then shut the wire door again. I then ran all the way up the street of the grove before my mum would gain suspicion that I had escaped.

      No matter how fast I went, I was still worried that my mum would detect me and so I called out for Dreamy WB to come and help. I said something like, “Dreamy WB! We still need to save the adults. Don't let her see that I've escaped!”. Dreamy WB did appear but I have actually forgotten her appearance and what she did this time. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      Attn. Fellow Dreamers!!
      I'm thinking of putting this quiz I created onto DreamViews for a bit of fun. It's based on all my dreams in the DV journal and I'm not joking when I say that the quiz is massive. So here's where I'd like some user opinions. I can put it all in one slab on a thread, or approximately 3 sections at a time in my journal every two weeks (but it would still take up a lot of space in my journal because there would be like 10+ entries). Let me know if you'd prefer it within the journals or in the threads. If it's in the threads, then maybe give me a suggestion of what the appropriate posting category would be. Then when I put the quiz up in the threads or journals, there'll be instructions on how you guys can participate.

      Thanks,

      Karla

    13. Special - KarlaB18's Dream Trivia

      by , 02-11-2018 at 11:56 AM
      After having approximately 280 dreams in the journalling system and some spectacular ones in there, I thought I'd compile some fun and amazing facts about my dreams. Some things you may have picked up already from reading my general entries and other things, they may have been a complete surprise until now. I'll update the facts every now and then so they're up to date. So without further ado, let's begin!



      Waking Life Journalling:
      - As of 13 May 2018, dreams have been recorded into the journal over 330 nights.
      - With dreams each night being separated into A, B and further letters, there may be nearly 600 dreams.
      - The highest letter reached on the journalling system was F, which means that there were six dreams remembered in one night.
      - The first dream to be officially documented into the computer system was in 2012.
      - As of 13 May 2018, a total of 18 lucid dreams have been recorded.

      Dreamer Identity
      :
      - No one has ever called me by my name in a dream.
      - Most dreams between 2012 and 2016 took place with my wearing my school uniform.
      - My dreams have never heavily distorted me.
      - Besides dream guides, I am the next most powerful and intelligent character in my dreams.
      - In the real world, I am 19 but in the dream world, I am still 18.

      Abilities:
      - My elements are an exact replica of Spyro's set. What's different about them is the kind of attacks I perform as well as other abilities that Spyro does not have evident in games.
      - My primary element was ice, but in more recent dreams, this has been shifted to earth.
      - If I put my mind to it (literally), I can control an occurrence for any other dream character.
      - Controversially, I am stronger in non-lucids and weaker in lucids.
      - In one dream, I stopped Murray from falling to death by using my earth element to create an anti-gravity field around him.
      - In an encounter with flying robotic enemies, the electricity element had caused them to malfunction and the result was that they fell down, ultimately being destroyed on ground impact.

      Dream Guides:
      - There have been a total of 12 dream guides (9 males and 3 females) in the dream time-line.
      - Dream guides weren't formally recognized until Dreamy WB's début in Dream No. 76.
      - Initials of the current dream guide were originally supposed to be Dreamy WT but this was changed to reflect the comparison of identity to her waking life counterpart.
      - Dreamy TH, Noah, Dreamy NN and Murray are substitute dream guides for when situations do not allow the current assigned dream guide to be present.
      - As of 9 May 2018, Murray has graduated from a substitute dream guide into an official dream guide.
      - Murray was not supposed to be a dream guide and rather, I was supposed to be his dream guide; but uncontrolled actions by him tended to replicate Dreamy WB's methods.
      - Murray is the only dream guide that has not had his personality altered and rather, he keeps the personality that he has been given in real life (in the games). The only difference that has been applied to Murray is a brain enhancement.
      - On serious occasions (in his first set of appearances), Murray results to consulting me in my bedroom, preferably while having a hug with me under sheets.
      - Murray has the ability to recall events from past dreams and re-address them if necessary.
      - Murray is the only dream guide that isn't human.
      - As of 31 January 2018, Dreamy WB has appeared in dreams over 81 nights.
      - Dreamy WB is the only dream guide with an alternate name.
      - Even though not in dreams together, dream guides must know about each other as Dreamy SW appeared when there was a crisis with Dreamy WB and she wasn't even asked in the first place.
      - Noah is the only dream guide that hasn't been thought of in waking life.
      - Dreamy WB is the most intelligent dream guide.
      - Dreamy WB is so advanced that she can pass on and teach techniques of guidance to other dream characters.
      - Dreamy WB's default race is African but she once appeared as European in Dream No. 216 B.
      - Dreamy WB is the only dream guide to be messed around and potentially bullied by the "Awareness Behind The Dream".
      - There is such a thing as an aggressive dream guide, Dreamy JSe was one of them.
      - Since Dream No. 231, Dreamy WB has developed the ability to appear even without request from the dreamer.
      - Dreamy WB is the most gentle and affectionate female dream guide.
      - All male dream guides after Dreamy WB in the time-line are equally as gentle and affectionate as each other but in their own unique ways.
      - The dream guide with the shortest amount of service time was Dreamy TH who only interacted with me when I was at one of his singing events.
      - As of 16 April 2018, Dreamy WB is the only dream guide that has helped someone not related to me.

      Dream Characters:

      - The most aggressive dream characters are my parents.
      - All immediate family members have appeared in at least one dream.
      - Most unknown dream characters seem to be quite strict and cold in their personality.
      - My brother is the most "pushed around" character in my dreams.
      - My cat is portrayed as ferocious.
      - LB is the weakest character, at least thought of by me in dreams.
      - Most teachers tend to have negative associations attached to them.

      Character Relationships:
      - I rely on my mum a lot in dreams where she is passive.
      - Dreamy WB has helped my mum out of trouble in two dreams to date so far.
      - In one dream, Dreamy WB and Murray worked in tandem to calm me down after an upsetting situation.
      - As of 9 May 2018, Dreamy WB and Murray have worked together in 2 dreams to date.
      - There was one dream with a DreamViews user in it but their identity was not revealed.
      - I am only ever severely bullied by male characters.
      - Although they have never met, WB and Dreamy WB are aware of each other (As of 9 February 2018).
      - As of 10 February 2018, WB and Dreamy WB have met but they do not get along with each other.
      - As of 31 January 2018, Dreamy WB had successfully disciplined my parents in 3 dreams.
      - On rare occasions, I have had to provide discipline to Logan (SML) although he is older than me.
      - Even I work with them, I am not a part of the Cooper Gang, nor do I want to be labelled with such description. Rather, I am their realm leader; without me, they would not be able to perform well in the dream world.
      - My deceased grandfather used to be a nightmare but through stong-willed techniques in the waking world, he has been transformed into a passive but friendly dream character.
      - I am always standing up for my brother in dreams where he isn't sided with my parents.
      - In real life, WB is shorter than me. In dreams, WB is shorter than me... But Dreamy WB is taller than me.
      - There was one dream where Dreamy WB appeared to be shorter than me.

    14. Behind The Scenes - Dream No. 251

      by , 12-29-2017 at 02:01 PM
      This dream addressed a lot of the technique that I did right that night before going to bed. Although the dream was weird in some ways, the method of response was amazing and quite intriguing.



      Dream No. 251 (B)

      Before Going To Bed
      The quality of my dreams was frustrating me and what was getting to me the most was the fact that my dream guide is getting progressively harder and harder to summon. I took the situation literally and decided to troubleshoot it. For a focus technique, I used my journal to physically write a letter titled to "The Awareness Behind The Dream" (ABTD for short).

      The things seen in the dream that I addressed in the letter were, in these exact words:
      - "Stop toying with my dream guide!"
      - "But no weirdly transformed dream guides or wacky school teachers!"
      - "A lot of my recent dreams have been weak and have had barely any meaning"
      - "I stress this, bring back Dreamy WB, bring back my dream guide now!"
      - "I do not have 5 fingers; I have 6 of them on each hand"
      - "The most accurate environment in my dream is my house; the rest may change as pleased"
      - "And in case you do listen and decide to bring back Dreamy WB... It's a she!"
      - "I will know when she is near, you cannot fool me. Although I may be dumb in a dream, I realise it when I wake up and I will track it back to you, the ABTD"
      - "You can change some of her facial features and I mean only SOME... I must be able to recognise her in order for that to qualify".

      My House
      The back of my house was resembled as in real life but as it got closer to the front of my house, the dream took this quote from my letter last night "The most accurate environment in my dream is my house; the rest may change as pleased" and bent that rule a bit. The first sign of an inaccurate appearance was in the kitchen. In fact, the only accurate rooms in the house were the bedrooms, the rest was all messed up.

      Dreamy SW
      She was a past dream guide but she only ever appeared in a dream once and her role was so insignificant and I ended up helping her instead. In hindsight, I'm actually grateful I got extra help in the dream and what's really amazing is that she fully supported me getting to Dreamy WB.

      What intrigues me is that Dreamy SW had such a strong foundation when I've had barely any connection with her in the recent past.

      The Office Scene
      In the dream, it was an ordinary scene but on further analysis, it's the most meaningful and powerful scene in the dream. I think that the circle table is supposed to represent equality and conferencing, that the dream guides are literally a committee and a team.

      In the letter before I slept, I addressed the ABTD as a mysterious, mischievous, trouble-making figure and I could see that in the boss... The boss was a literal representation of the ABTD and the chain of command. It really is the ABTD you're calling out to when you want to summon something, isn't it? What really created that sense of darkness and mystery for me was the all black attire, the dark hair and most importantly; the sunglasses covering the eyes. Is it true that the eyes are the window to the soul? This figure was using sunglasses as a blind to the true identity.

      Then there's Dreamy WB; I'm going to elaborate on her in a separate topic but what I want to elaborate on here is that wristband. The boss said to her "your wristband's flashing"... What does this mean? My question of curiousity would be that do all dream guides have a wristband equipped like this? It was so cool when I realised the fact that my dream guide actually has a wristband that activates when I call them, alerting them to the scenario. I wonder whether Dreamy SW had one as well but I couldn't see it as she was wearing a long-sleeved jumper. Another thing is, I wonder if that wristband was just for this dream or whether a similar principle would be followed in subsequent dreams.

      Dreamy WB
      This has got to be the most disturbing aspect of this dream, which was how she made her first appearance. The letter quotes I think the dream addressed were "But no weirdly transformed dream guides or wacky school teachers!", "And in case you do listen and decide to bring back Dreamy WB... It's a she!" and "You can change some of her facial features and I mean only SOME... I must be able to recognise her in order for that to qualify".

      With the quote of "You can change some of her facial features and I mean only SOME... I must be able to recognise her in order for that to qualify", I reckon the ABTD was trying to test me and see what I would accept and wouldn't accept. Was the ABTD trying to think of the worst possible version of her? In her first appearance, the dream had distorted everything... It made it so absolutely no feature was recognisable.

      The second appearance feels to me like a correction by the ABTD saying that my letter has been understood and interpreted. The second part felt like I was more in control overall. I did also state in my technique letter that the most flexible thing to manipulate if the ABTD wanted to would be her clothing. I reckon the men's tuxedo was the aspect of the ABTD where as the hot pink colour of the tie as well as the hot pink energy barrier around her was it affirming to me to I would only stand for her true identity as female.

      I think the reason why the dream played in extra slow motion when it was parting Dreamy WB's hair was to show me the last aspect to having full control; once her hair was in place, I was fully satisfied with her and the unique differences that the dream had given her.

      Intentions
      I had more intentions in this dream but my time was wasted as the whole dream was taken up with troubleshooting the identity of Dreamy WB that the ABTD had completely messed up. I wasn't expecting the identity correction to take as near as long as it did. I had a solid intention on completing a DV TOTM and I was going to progress to it once I had Dreamy WB helping me.

      What was problematic is that once the identity had been corrected, I was whisked away to another bedroom scene where the false awakening occurred. I think I know what my next correction technique will be; distinguishing the difference between a false awakening and a real awakening so the dream can't trick me anymore (or at least it will be harder for the dream to trick me).

    15. Dream - Flaming Fire Fury (+ Side Note)

      by , 09-13-2017 at 02:23 PM
      I didn't post on here for ages. I'm studying a diploma qualification at the moment and the last weeks of term are always so busy when it comes to any type of studying. The schedule has really messed up the quality of my dreams but now that I have a three week holiday... Hopefully the opportunity arises to get my dreams and contact with my Dream Guide back on track. Just wanted to tell you where I was in case anyone was wondering for the past month or so:

      Date of Dream: THU 24 AUG - 2017



      Dream No. 184 - Flaming Fire Fury

      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember; my family, JO and JH were getting ready to go out somewhere. Some family friends were over at my house and so I was keen to show them the dress that I was wearing. The dream scene went to me looking in my bedroom mirror. I was wearing a short, light blue dress with black straps and some lavender coloured jewellery.

      Then there was a different dream scene altogether, in a different location. It was in some random garage-like room and I was wanting to change into a lavender dress to match the jewellery. Interestingly enough, the dress was going to be in the exact same style, just in a different colour. So I was taking off my light blue dress when this random silhouette of a lady appears on the other side of the curtained window... The voice is constantly yelling at me to hurry up.

      She yells at me so often that I eventually forced to stop what I am doing and so therefore, find myself continuing a portion of the dream naked, or as I felt it, at least top half naked. I go to the other side of this garage room, where the door to the outside is. As it opens, the lady that was yelling at me comes forth from outside. I ended up getting really cross with her and telling her off for what she had done. I find that my temper is actually getting higher and higher and I soon also get hot. I clearly stated, in anger, that I was going to let out the most awful fire fury.

      I end up taking a deep breath in and literally, I see flames blasting out of my mouth at the lady. The flames had really affected her but I wasn't done. I shifted my elemental powers to only a bit of ice, which was not ice itself but rather really cold air... It had paralysed her movements, made her helpless and shoved her out the door. I then turned around and noticed that some invisible wall was up to where I planned to go back to. I whispered to myself “the room now seems to be guarded by fire” and then I said to the invisible barrier, something like “allow us access, do not deny us”.

      I felt this energy as if the fire barrier was letting me through. When I got to the other side, my assumption of fire guarding the room became true as I got extremely hot and started to sweat. All throughout the dream, I did manage to find some time for Easter egg hunts and in this room, I found a whole heap of Easter eggs laying in a bowl. I thought that there were the eggs that my little cousin collected and beat me to. I tried to remove the wrapper off one of the eggs but it was melted from the heat that the excess of the fire element was creating. That's all I can remember for this dream.



      Dream Trophies Achieved:
      - Snowed In (use your ice abilities in 1 dream)
      >> Paralysed the lady with a blast of cold air and then shot her out the door.
      - Burnt To A Crisp (use your fire abilities in 1 dream)
      >> Breathed fire on the lady and afterwards, the room became surrounded by the remaining energy of this element.
