    NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID FALSE AWAKENING PRECOG

    Iím a bit disappointed with my dream recall and LDs lately. My boyfriend didnít use to wake up when I was taking notes, but now he wakes up all the time and complains Iím making noise or that the light disturbs him (I have a pilotís pen with LEDs, that can lit the whole room). This is inhibiting me as I donít want to be the cause of his bad nights of sleep.
    On the other hand he also keeps waking me up, disturbing my LDs, efforts to WILD or OBE. I mean, itís good to have someone by your side, but it definitely messes up with the sleep and dream practices. Sometimes I feel jealous of you single oneironauts out there: enjoy your single bed while you can
    My boyfriend and I are seriously considering that I go sleep on the couch. LOL Really!

    Escaping a complex long building
    Iím with a group of friends in a very strange place. Itís almost like a long, long tunnel housing complex. It includes a bit of everything, from a kindergarten somewhere in the middle and a gay/travesty bar in one end. And all these places are interconnected. Weíre having some fun at these gay bar at the end and some of these guys in the group are like politicians and public figures and some of them are with heavy make-up and travestied, but no one is really gay, they are just loosen up trying to have some serious fun.
    But then a bunch of police like a swat team is coming. Thereís a lot of panic around, we donít know exactly what, but apparently thereís something illegal going on this place and we were caught in the middle. My friends freak out, because although weíre not involved, it would be quite a scandal if their fun party would become public. So we decide to escape by the back, through the interconnected series of buildings behind. They have no time to undress so we just need to be very discrete and avoid being seen by anybody Ė if someone sees us and the police then questions people, they will still get to us and specially become suspicious with our escape.
    So as we go (weíre quite a large group Ė maybe 6-7 people) we really struggle not be seen. Thereís a funny scene, when weíre crossing the kindergarten area Ė a lady sees me in the kitchen and asks me what I am doing there. Luckily she didnít saw the others who were squatted behind some furniture. I distract her, trying to luck totally normal and filling up a glass of water and saying Iím new there and I am just coming to get a glass of water for some kid. She is not really convinced but immediately gives me some errands to do. As I distract her with this, the others use the opportunity to continue forth, still squatted and manage to go to the next building. As I also get rid of the lady and go after them we then meet at this kind of passageway between two buildings and someone sees us. But fortunately is my friend Hugo and he decide to help us. He checks the path and tells us when itís clear. Then we have to cross a yard and although there are some places to hide (now we have to crawl behind some bushes), thereís also a lot of people passing by and at some point I need to run back, as I risk being spotted. And I guess this goes on until we finally reach the other end and get out of this complex... but donít recall anything else.

    Attack of the big mad elephant
    Iím in what seems to be some of my home town streets, near the river. Thereís some festival going on and at some point everybody starts running in panic because an elephant is on the loose and he is not friendly. As I see the elephant coming I prepare to simply fly away and get into safe ground but I see all these people totally vulnerable and feel like helping. I try to gather them all and we run to some parking lot of a supermarket (something like that), which has fences around. The elephant still takes some time to get there as he is distracted along the way with other stuff/people. I coordinate people to help me close the gates and secure the fence, but I realise it is quite weak and in some places it is even broken. I know an elephant can simply step on it and enter, as if it was made of paper. But these people need hope and I play along. My father is also there. He hands me his watch. It has a leather bracelet and he tells me it can be used to close the gate. I actually think itís quite a great idea, even if it wonít make any difference.
    Then I spot this warehouse behind us, which is actually also very weak, but could give us a better chance and I tell everybody to get inside.
    We close all doors and barricade in there. The elephant has finally approached and we sense him outside. He is huge and he is mad. I sense itís no ordinary stressed elephant, he is on a mission and wonít let go of it.
    He actually yells (yeah, the elephant speaks!) to us that heíll be watching us and weíll eventually need to go outside and heíll be waiting for that moment. People feel upset but also in a good mood because they escaped so far and thereís a chance if they come up with the right plan. Thereís a young couple with their kids and they plan to take some shower (apparently we even have showers on the warehouse, I wonder if thereís also food by any chance) and take the kids along. Then at night people make a bonfire and sing and dance. They are really in good mood, but the future is uncertain.

    On the churchís attic
    Iím inside some old building which Iím not yet sure what it is. I see some stairs going up, like to a tower and I want to go up there, but thereís tape saying ďconstruction siteĒ on it and meanwhile a guy yells at me that I canít go there, that it is dangerous. I say ok and keep exploring the ground floor. I see this corridor with arcades on the sides that leads me to a big central nave and I realise it is a church. On this central nave there are stairs leading to a higher platform, not really another floor, but an intermediate floor. The same guy who yelled before, now yells that I can climb to that one. And I say ok again and climb the stairs. I find myself in this platform, not at all interesting, but with a very old wooden floor, that squeaks and bends down. Some guy that looks like a junkie tells me ďHave you seen this floor?Ē, ďYeah, so what!Ē, ďIt was restored recently and itís totally safe to jump on it!Ē. And I see many people just walking around and jumping on it. I feel no confidence at all on this floor and just decide to go down again, when I spot some more stairs leading to some attic. I go up there and I find this wonderful room with kiddie furniture and toys and such a cozy warm ambiance. I wonder whoís living there and then I see my two cousins S. and J. They are living there. I say hi to them and how good it is to see them again. Then I say this place is amazing and I am so happy they finally have a nice room just for them (theyíve always been poor and sleeping on really shity houses, with no room of their own. I tell them they deserve to finally have such a nice home. But somehow they are not looking very happy. I notice they have this ball pool and a smaller room on a corner which is a playing house. Then I look through the window (which is a skylight on the inclined roof) and I see a beautiful view Ė green lush mountains and the ocean.
    They still look unhappy and I wonder why they look so young. They should by now be twenty and twenty-something years old, why do they appear as kids.
    But I donít get lucid...

    Tsunami in Japan
    Then Iím kicked to this outside landscape I was seeing through the window and Iím by the sea. On my left side is a river flowing into the sea. Iím with a group of girl friends. And weíre in Japan! Weíre just relaxing by the water when I notice a strong wave hitting the quay on our left. The wave is about a meter high, but it is so straight up and strong I sense something abnormal. Then I see a second wave like this and I tell my friends I think itís a tsunami. And if it is, these were just the warning waves and we have just a few minutes until a big one comes. They could say I was crazy but the fact is although not entirely convinced, they decided to play it safe and depart with me. A friend is driving a tiny red car and we go through a road that goes side by side with the river. Current is now upstream and water is starting to rise. They realise I was correct and I tell them to turn on the left to a road that goes up, instead of staying on this road that is quickly being flooded.
    As we go up, we see other big waves hitting the shore and covering the land. On top of this hill we find a village and people are running away. We ask two guys if they know whatís going on and they tell us there was a warning on the radio that had been a big quake on the sea and a big tsunami was expected and that the big waves were still going to come. They told us it wasnít safe to stay here, we had to go to higher ground as everybody was doing. Half the hill was already covered by water and it was surrounding us, because this hill was only connected to mainland through one side. We asked him the way out and he just pointed vaguely to the road in front of us and then left. We saw 2 or 3 cars going that way and we followed them. Then we arrived at this bifurcation again, on some square and we didnít know where to go now. We first went left but the road was going down and half of it was already covered by water. We were getting scared and yelling at that guy who didnít offer to guide us out of there Ė was every man by itself. Now driving really quickly we turned back and went to the right and kept going up.
    Then I woke up. [Letís hope this is not a precognitive dream, because next week Iíll be going to Japan...]

      Escaping from big, complex places can be a lot of fun. Not sure if it would be the same dragging half-a-dozen people around, though.

      And churches are always fun to explore. I find that they're a lot more dangerous in dreams, though.
