    1. I'm not broken anymore!

      by , 07-04-2017 at 12:03 AM
      The best dream I've had in awhile! The beginning is a bit fuzzy, but I found myself in a beautiful version of my city - it was sunny and warm, white clouds. I became lucid. At first I called out to my mother - I do this a lot but I can never find her - then I remembered that, and decided to try to find people from this site, and that castle I have read about here. I was absolutely stunned at how solid everything was. At some point a guy and a girl were helping me. I told them this was a dream. I kept looking up at the bright blue sky amazed at how real it all was. I was literally yelling out ' Is there anyone from the Dream Views site here?' I was also asking random people if they knew of a castle. My awareness was incredible, in all my years of lucid dreaming this was the most stable dream I have ever had. And I noticed when it was losing stability, and I would somehow focus it back. At certain points I became aware of the real world - noises like my dog barking. But somehow I knew how to push that away. Anyway, the guy that was helping me pointed at the sky behind me. I turned and saw these dark clouds forming into a tornado. (Tornados are a repetitive dream of mine) It was right in front of me. I thought 'OK this thing is going to suck me up, then I will fall (another recurring dream: falling from great heights...my fear comes from hitting the ground because I know if I see it happen my brain will create the pain, even though I know its not real, I will still feel it) Still fully lucid, up I went into the sky, I remained calm and waited for the fall. When I started to fall I closed my eyes knowing that if I couldn't see the ground, I would never hit it. I worked! I opened my eyes and I was standing on the ground. This gave me even more confidence of the control I had. I knew that I needed to stay extremely focused on what I wanted. It was almost like the dream was trying to distract me or something...the equivalent of mind wandering when your awake I suppose. Another thing that was very different from my regular dreams: there were people everywhere. One thing that I was having difficulty with was the fact that I was in my city....it was everywhere and I was slightly doubtful about finding a castle here. But then I found this big, tall building. It didn't look like a regular castle. But I was thinking that it might be it. So I went inside, asking the many, many people if this was the Dream Views castle. Again there were a lot of people and it was all kind of hectic. It was more like a school than anything. I found myself in a library of sorts. I was rather frantically looking at everything - pictures on the walls, books - anything that could tell me what this building was, and trying to remember everything so i could recall it when i woke up. I also knew that anything with writing might not be very helpful because in my experiences writing or numbers keep changing resulting in nonsense. Some of the books had symbols. There was one book that said a recognizable word: Focus. Then I found myself in a courtyard. This was when I remembered how I couldn't fly in my last lucid dream and I just knew that I would be able to do it now. So I took a running start and flew up and around. Its been so long since I've been able to fly...it was amazing. Something else that was new was that I would find my eyes closed and I would be worried that by opening them, I might actually open my real eyes and wake up. But everytime, I remained in the dream. There was a point were everything started to get fuzzy and distorted, but I was able to focus the dream back. At one point I even tried to call out my daughters name - in real life - with the intention of bringing her to where I was sleeping to talk to her about what was happening in my dream. But as usual, my voice probably didn't make a sound. What finally did wake me up was my dog barking. As the dream began to fade I was trying to open my eyes but I geuss SP was still in effect because it was extremely difficult. Then I opened them, and remembered everything. It was such a good feeling...I'm not broken anymore!!
    2. something new

      So last night I had this strange thing happen. I was sleeping and woke up. I turned over and lay there. You know how as your falling asleep your thinking these random things...well I was doing that - and falling back to sleep - when I realized I was starting to see what I was thinking of as a dream. It was a strange feeling. To be aware of it.
    3. looking for someone while lucid

      by , 06-15-2017 at 02:52 PM
      So I was having this crazy dream that started with me at a dance recital with Abby from dance moms (lol), that turned into an alien invasion. As some point I realized I was dreaming, so of course I ran to the first person I saw and told them this was my dream. They just looked at me with a blank expression. I calmed myself, and noticed how solid and stable the dream was. Then I decided to try to find my mom (my mother died when I was 2 so I don't remember her, and I never dream of her. Trying to find her is something I often do when i'm lucid....but I never do.) I knew I wouldn't find her where I was - at the top of an extremely high hotel - and I knew I didn't have a lot of time. So I decided to jump off the balcony but I couldn't climb up on the railing. So I decided to take the slides down. At some point on the way down I lost lucidity and woke up.
    4. an accident

      by , 03-27-2017 at 02:57 PM
      So, I was driving through this tunnel (there are no tunnels where I live, its a small city) and just as I come to the end there is an accident that just happened. The vehicle closest to me was almost completely verticle with its rear caught up on a guard rail or wall. I could see someone's arms hanging there so I got out. The guy was dazed and coming around. Then I saw the german shepard buckled in the passengers seat. I think he was hurt, but not too badly. So I went and got him out, and I was carrying him in a blanket and trying to keep him calm. I think I forgot about the person. Then I woke up.
    5. nightmare-ish

      by , 03-24-2017 at 03:33 PM
      This was a strange one and I barely remember it. There was this dark evil entity causing chaos and death, so I tried to stop it, but she put me in a state of sleep paralysis. it was such an odd feeling, I could sense my body, but it was like it was far away or something. I don't think I have ever dreamed about SP, and when I do have an episode its always the same: It takes place where I went to sleep, and I am always aware of the room I'm in and anyone else who is in it.
    6. That was fun

      by , 03-06-2017 at 07:21 PM
      I found myself running through a forest. Actually I wasn't myself, I don't know who I was, but there were others with me running. Anyway, then I saw wolves and I thought the other people were turning into wolves, so I better do it too. So I did, and it was awesome! We were running so fast, I think we were chasing something...then its all a blur.
    7. Too much

      by , 03-05-2017 at 07:01 PM
      Wow what a mish-mash of dreams I had. Baby animals (kittens, lizards, puppies..), video game characters (I was in the game), relatives, small rooms, outsmarting evil psychopaths, ugly dresses...geez
    8. Alice in wonderland

      by , 03-04-2017 at 11:29 PM
      I had a semi-lucid dream running around this office building behaving like a child, messing around with people. There was someone with me and it was like we knew something that nobody else did and we thought it was hilarious. We found these little cookies in the shape of stickmen/stickwoman and they would make you shrink or grow. I grabbed the shrinking one and took a big bite and shrunk so small. It was too much so I had to eat a bit of the other one.....
    9. Funny stuff

      by , 03-01-2017 at 04:14 PM
      Whenever I try to use a telephone in a dream, either I can't quite remember the number I'm trying to call or the numbers on the phone keep changing. So frustrating!
      I had this dream where I was with my daughter, who was about 6, in a fairly busy area of our city when not too far off in the distance I saw the stay-puff marshmellow man - huge like in the ghostbusters movie. He was reeking havoc, my daughter wanted to go see him, which I refused, then without a thought I ran to a nearby payphone, grabbed the phonebook and proceeded to look for the number for the 'ghostbusters'. It all seemed so rational at the time.
      Dreams are awesome.
    10. recurring dream

      by , 03-01-2017 at 03:11 PM
      Last night I had one of my many recurring dreams. I was walking with my son, talking then all of a sudden there was a very big bear about 20 feet away. I just stopped. My son started to turn to run, but I grabbed him, and told him not to. As we took a cautious step back, keeping our eyes on the bear, of course it saw us. It started to come towards us, so I stepped in front of my son. We moved backwards faster, then I took a quick look behind us to see where we could get to that the bear couldn't. Then we were running...then I woke up.

      The recurring part is the bear. Sometimes I'm with my daughter, or alone. Classic 'monster chase' I guess....
    11. Past dreams

      by , 03-01-2017 at 02:28 AM
      I have always had vivid dreams - especially when I was a teenager. Lots of LD, and even some precognitive. Unfortunately the older I got, the fewer 'meaningful' dreams I experienced. I still have LD quite often, oh and the dreaded SP which always makes me panic! I'm gonna try to write some of these, short form, here...past dreams.

      This one LD has always stuck with me because its kind of funny: I found myself in my room - where I went to sleep, and I immediately realized I was dreaming. I looked at my window and I really wanted to go jump out and fly. But I stopped myself because I was worried that I might actually be acting out the dream, like sleepwalking...lol

      This dream was beautiful:
      I was sitting on the back of a large turtle as he swam through the ocean towards a beautiful beach. I was amazed at how vibrant and clear everything was. It was as if I had spent my whole life looking through foggy glasses that were now removed. It was like being one of the first people to experience an untouched brand new world. There were only a few us here. We were being taught how to live here without damaging anything, like plants or animals.

      This was a SP:
      I was in my bed and couldn't move. The air was strange - like dark stuff floating around. Beside the bed were 3 dark hooded figures(lol so generic SP figures). They brought what I think were dogs over to me, and it rested it's head on my stomach. Then they left!
      Although I experience SP quite often, I rarely see anyone/anything.
