    1. Single Dream

      by , 09-03-2018 at 06:04 AM
      Let's start at the beginning. I took new nightly medication and fell asleep reasonably quick. Upon waking (around 2:00am), I took an 8mg galantamine extract pill -- which, years prior, barely assisted in dream recall. As I drifted off to sleep, I managed to WILD.

      The sensation of sleep paralysis was hardly as bad as it had been before. I’ve found myself stuck in it far too long when I try to WILD. This time was different. To get metaphysical, those physical sensations I felt lying on my bed dissolved away to a blackness as my perception turned inward. I could feel my subconscious take over my breathing, and instead of feeling an uncomfortable stiffness in my limbs, I felt waves of relaxation wash through my body.

      From this blackness, I wanted to create the universe. So I did. I was cheeky about it too, narrating it Attenborough’s voice as I watched galaxies form, then planets. I commented about how Earth was my favorite life-bearing planet (and the only life-bearing planet I knew of). For some reason, I felt really clever saying that. I then found myself next to a black hole. Around me roared clouds of stellar gasses, red hot. I felt fear as I watched (what my mind’s eye perceived as) this black hole.

      Next thing I know, I am walking down a dimly lit hallway made of ancient stone. It was very dungeon-esque, interspersed with iron bars that seperated the hallway parallel to my own. A man was pounding on the bars. He turned and looked at me, yet his face was distorted -- much like flesh-toned static. The man uttered to me in a deep and equally distorted voice. And like that, a rush of water broke away the stones as it sucked everything down into a whirlpool behind him.

      I must have flown off, because next thing I remember was tasking people with saving warring nations and attempting to de-escalating their war. After awhile though, I settled in a desert. I was at the top of a mountain with another guy -- he was my father apparently. His voice kept changing and so did mine. We both commented on it, but continued talking. He was building a windmill to power something at the bottom. Each time an addition was made, the man grew older. I had constructed a generator powered by a mini-black hole by the time he was done.

      There’s a huge blank spot between this and the next dream. I was piloting a spaceship as a robot, delivering Chinese food to some guy. As I approached the asteroid, I realized he was being pursued by bounty hunters. I avoided their bullets as I docked. The guy immediately pulled me out and tossed me inside and set my ship to self-destruct to fool them. He closed some blast doors and we heard the explosion. When he asked for his food, I told him I didn’t grab it out of the ship. He wasn’t happy.

      There was another dream about a teacher losing her job because of underperforming students and another of a mega-building called “Decadence”. It was a self-sustaining building that provided everything free of charge (food, drinks, room), but there were only three ways in: Invitation for the famous, by being exceptionally skilled and working there -- or interestingly -- by sneaking in. Anyone who managed to get past their tight security could live there.

      I woke up from this at 5:00am feeling as though got a full night’s rest, despite my mind being so active in the dreams.
    2. Stormy Dream

      by , 07-11-2016 at 05:56 AM
      I can't quite remember where the dream starts, other than that I was leaving work and heading back home. My roommate was in the car with me as we navigated through winding roads and across hills. We happened to drive up a hill to meet with my parents. They had just purchased a house in a close-knit neighborhood surrounded by pueblo houses. The neighbors were out and about, talking with each other when I looked at the base of the mountain and saw black billowing clouds contrasting against the sunset. One of the neighbors walked up to me and explained that this was going to be the biggest storm yet and everyone was preparing for it.

      Nighttime was approaching, and the clouds stopped moving towards us and settled down into base of the mountain. I rushed with my roommate back into the main town, where the close alleyways didn't permit us to drive far. We went into a rundown bar to try to hide from the coming storm, but it was already packed, and we wanted a place to ourselves - since most popular hiding spots were charging a fee. As we traveled down some stairs outside, we found an old abandoned cleaning closet that also housed some piping. Nobody was in there, so that's where we hid, and right when the storm approached too.

      Before I could see any action, however, I immediately woke up.
    3. Three Disjointed Fragments

      by , 07-08-2016 at 02:46 PM
      I traveled to L.A. with a couple of friends of mine. I don't recall much other than that we had visited a business plaza surrounded by eateries and clubs. We went to one club, but promptly left since it didn't actually appeal to us.

      It was nighttime and I was in an open air plaza once again. This time there was an assortment of cart vendors and people wandering around. I vaguely remember something about robots and orcs - or other such mythical creatures, but not much else beyond that.

      I was doing a delivery with an older lady to an elementary school. I realized after we had arrived thar it was my old school I attended. As we went inside, I tried hard to examine all the students and teachers for folks I knew. There was one little girl in particular that seemed familiar, but I moved on.

      I went to the cafeteria for an old reuinon, and saw a great deal of older adults. None of them I recognized, but many of them were successful looking. I felt envy, but soon woke up.

    4. Dream Fragment: Traveling

      by , 07-08-2016 at 05:46 AM
      I was grocery shopping with my roommate, looking for a specific cut of beef to use with a gravy and noodle recipe. For some reason, I was secretive about it, not wanting her to know. Later on though, a few of our friends happen to show up with us, and we discuss our plans for the day. I end up hitching a ride with one of my friends rather than riding with my roommate. As we loaded up the car, she told me to be careful with the eggs - and like a scene out of a sitcom, I quip back with, "I know what I'm doing," and roughly dropped them into the trunk. With a loud cracking noise, I look down and see the eggs broke all over my clean laundry. Feeling defeated, I just rush inside the car and we get going.

      For some reason, we decided to visit my grandparents house on our way back. It was a quaint neighborhood, completely different than what my grandparents actually live in. There were chain link fences holding back barking dogs, and the backyards of the modular houses were unkempt and messy with weeds and grass. Once we arrived, I was greeted by a man who told me I needed to take some sort of test on the computer. Before I could take it, however, someone I work with showed up and was taking it with me. Strangely enough, the modular home shifted to an old, dark Victorian styled house, and the test became a logic puzzle on a child who had died on the property. We needed to know how, and when the child died. If we failed, we would die. I knew the answer before the test started, but I wanted to show my work and set myself to solve it properly. I promptly woke up before the dream proceeded, though.

      First Dream
      Not much to this one. I was with a group of people at a pool. We were throwing these strange foam objects into the water, but I can't remember why. I remember checking a Doppler radar on my phone and saw a storm approaching. It also picked up on sea monsters lurking beneath the pool. A person approached me to discuss something, though I woke up before they could.

      First Fragment
      I recall being with a group of people traveling along some area. There was, however, another person who joined us -- someone that I wasn't particularly fond of for one reason or another. All I really remember is going to great lengths to avoid them.

    7. Deforestation

      by , 02-13-2015 at 06:22 AM
      First Fragment

      In this fragment, all I remember was travelling down a road through a lush forest and arriving at a construction site. Some people were accompanying me, and we began cutting down more of the forest. Finally we began digging far down to the point there we hit the aquifer. I woke up shortly after though.
    8. Hazy Dream

      by , 07-25-2014 at 10:42 AM

      I don't remember so much as an introduction to this dream, but I recall having set up some sort of fleet in space. There was a red colored wormhole of sorts that lingered in the area, but no actions were taken. I hardly can recall anything occurring in this dream, as is to be expected, given that I am just now attempting to get back into the swing of things when it comes to lucid dreaming. Additionally, my current sleep schedule is unreliable as it stands, and steps must be taken to correct this. In short, changes are necessary; without a doubt though, I am looking forward to my return back into dreaming.
    9. One Dream

      by , 01-08-2014 at 08:21 PM
      First Part

      I am on my way to class for finals and catch a bus. This part is more of a fragment, so I all I remember is that there were some logistical troubles. After that, I was given something and started jumping off some ledge onto the floor below in this strange area. A couple people caught me and scolded me for being dangerous, so I left the area. I ran into an old friend of mine and we decided to leave the area/campus, thus transitioning to the second part.

      Second Part

      I'm at some huge indoor area. It's almost like a shopping center, but has hotels and houses in it. I stand a few levels above the spacious courtyard and watch an ensemble perform Ode to Joy. I notice some guy standing next to me and share hellos. He laughs and snidely remarked that he's heard better as well as expressing his curiosity as to people's obsession with that song. We both descend downwards and talk to conductor and pianist. I can't remember how the conversation went, only that a few Bach pieces were thrown out and partially played.

      The conductor had left, and we relocated to a small plaza surrounded by some shops and a smoothie stand. I read a poster they had which talked about how the only sugar the add is all natural, organic brown sugar and sugar extracted from various fruits. My attention then turned back to the guy and the pianist as they continued their discussion. The pianist started saying strange things though, so we did our best to get out of there. I don't recall what happened next, but the dream transitioned to its final stage.

      Third Part

      It was rather abrupt, as after the pianist debacle, I instantly remember the dream shifting to a group of four people. It was a contest of some sorts, in a VR I think, yet still in the same "location" so to speak. As the dream progressed, the group formed a team, but was then approached by whatever set up the contest to begin with. In its loud, booming voice, it said that all the points that they decided to each individually head to, were actually traps set up by a traitorous team member. Each trap ranged from being crushed to death, to being held until starvation. When confronted about this, she burst into tears.

      It gets a little hazy, but I remember there coming out a victor, and that once that was all done with, there were criminals skulking about; nothing stands out however.
    10. Two Dreams

      by , 01-07-2014 at 07:24 PM
      First Dream

      I was at some party, but I can't recall what for. The house that the party was hosted at was still under construction. Later on I had the urge to use the restroom, so I set off to find it. After finding what appeared to be the bathroom, I noticed it was still under construction and nothing functioned. I ran into one of the hosts and asked her to show me to a functioning bathroom. As we made our way across a field, we passed through a ramada occupied by a few people. One of them was me, I gave a nod and continued following the lady. I figured I was a time traveler from the future, and if I had stayed any longer then bad things would happen, but then I woke up.

      Second Dream

      I'm at a parking lot getting ready to get in my car when someone tries to rob me. They tell me to bring my stuff over to their vehicle. I comply, but grab a pistol that came out of nowhere on the passenger's side. As I bring the things they wanted to their car, I see a man who had the same thing happen to him. As I give the robber the stuff, I pull out the pistol and aim at them. They clearly don't know what to do at this point, as they set their weapon in the car to move things in their trunk. The man sitting in the back then leaps out and light them on fire using a spray can and a match. We call the police and gather our things and I wake up.
    11. Few Fragments

      by , 12-15-2013 at 06:53 PM
      The first dream I remember was a borderline nightmare! I was in a standard apartment with my friend, though it was abandoned. I explored the medicine cabinet and found an oval box belonging to the woman who lived here prior. I opened it up and it just had a few rings and some jewelry in it. As I closed the medicine cabinet and gazed into the mirror, a shadowy child-like figure stood at the entry way. I looked back and it was nowhere to be seen, that is, until I looked at the mirror again. This time, it inched it's way closer.

      Nearly paralyzed with fear, I called my friend over, who was none the wiser about the shadowy thing. I told her to look into the mirror to say if she saw it and that's all I can remember.

      The second dream starts with me driving in a bus full of people I know (like a field trip or something) to some city in California. However, as we approach a bridge, the driver is hesitant to cross it because of the nature of disrepair it's in. He went on to talk about how many accidents happened at this site because of the terrible state it was in. He also wanted to wait up for another group of people who couldn't fit on the bus and had to take their own vehicles. However, an earthquake struck and we were already partly on the bridge, so the driver floored it and narrowly made it to the other side. The bridge crumbled behind us.

      So we decided to stay in this town for a few hours/days to rest up. It rained more than usual, according to the townsfolk, and the place was flooded. I remember seeing a few people using a downwards slope as a sort of slip-n-slide.
    12. Fragments: Science Facility, Alternate Dimensions

      by , 12-11-2013 at 07:15 AM
      Can't quite recall the how it all started, but I do remember certain pieces of the dream. I don't think I was myself, as I was watching others attempt to solve a puzzle in another dimension. After experimenting with what I can only assume was portal technology, they sent a lone man to investigate was was on the other side.

      In this realm, there was a lone floating structure, where everything else was a uniform grey color. The structure itself varied between lighter shades of grey, and a black, and was composed entirely of cuboids, as there were no rounded or curved edges. It also didn't follow any conventional mechanics, as walking down stairs would take you to the roof, and turning left would take you down a level, as the man had found out. He deducted, that if had another person accompanied him, they would end up in two vastly different spots despite their best attempts to remain together.

      Soon enough, however, the man found an opened area with a lone jet black monolith. Slots were in it, as though the entire structure was actually some sort of machine--a machine that needed tuning to reactivate. The man visually located the necessary objects, as they were the only colored things in this realm, but had difficulty retrieving them. Before I could witness him reactive the machine, I either woke up or the dream cut away to something else, as I do not recall what happened next (much to my disappointment).

      Though, I do remember seeing him again, but this time in a lab. He was at the entrance of the deactivated gate (which was fairly small), but was holding onto the edges of the device as the other scientists and lab assistants tried yanking him out. It looked as though he were trying to escape--biding his time until the device turned on so he could be whisked away. There were meteors striking the area I think, or a war maybe? I can only seem to recall parts of the building being destroyed. The man wasn't trying to escape the dangers that lie outside, but rather protect some sort of knowledge from falling into the wrong hands. Perhaps what he saw in the alternate dimension could be weaponized?

      Regardless, he gave up on the machine and bolted outside the room. He came to a parking garage in ruins underneath the building. Strangely, my attention shifted from the man, to a scientist who snuck out after him. They met, despite the place falling apart, but the dream ends here.
    13. Tenant Complaints

      by , 12-08-2013 at 08:21 AM
      Don't really remember much except a fragment of some guy shouting at a group of people about how poorly planned the skyscraper he lived in was.
      Because of poor planning, the residential floors commingled with private offices, inevitably leading to a bunch of noise and break-in because of it.

      There were also these lizard beings that had landed on Earth, and mechs were thrown into the mix too I believe. Either way, not the best recall I've had.
    14. Two Failed WILDs, a Short Semi-Lucid, and One Long Dream

      by , 06-09-2013 at 03:55 AM
      First WILD
      I woke myself up four hours after resting to attempt a WILD. For the most part, it worked, as I slowly felt paralysis overcome me. Thereafter, sounds of static enveloped my hearing. Finally, I began seeing the sound, if that makes any sense. It was as though a spectrogram was hooked up to my vision, yet in all of this I still couldn't move.

      So I sat here in static land, vaguely aware of my body just waiting. I obviously wasn't thinking because rather than engage my sense of feeling and try and actually move my dreambody, I decided to take myself out of paralysis. If its anything that this WILD taught me, it's patience and that I should always attempt to think my decisions out.

      Second WILD
      After I got out of paralysis, I figured I might as well try another WILD after thinking over the last one and began relaxing myself back into it. This one had more waiting to it, as I just laid there. This time, sleep paralysis didn't come around, and there was a momentary blackout period that I went through. At this point, I must had fallen asleep, due to this large, square game board with buildings on it.

      I was still waiting for sleep paralysis to roll around as I watched (and did not question) these two entities play on the board. Judging by the conversation going back and forth, it was a father and his son playing a game on it, as they had no body. The game consisted of throwing a large ball at the right buildings to do as much damage as possible. The father taunted his son for he had the highest score as his son tried to beat him.

      But then I heard a new voice, that sounded muffled, like as though it were coming from a walkie-talkie. I somehow developed a body and flew underneath the board as the voice started guiding through relaxation and sleep paralysis. My vision shifted back to a first-person perspective. It was then that I once again felt and heard vibrations. A tunnel developed, and the voice cautioned that I should stay calm. Breathing perfectly and right as I was about to travel through it, the most peculiar thing happened.

      In an instant, my chest felt like it dropped as I was no longer in control of my breathing, and from my toes all the way up to my head, a quick wave traveled in me. Simultaneously, I heard a deep, roaring sound that can only be described as the crackling heard after lightning. But all this happened because I woke up. It's like when you're dreaming and someone suddenly shakes you out of it. Disappointed that the WILD failed, I decided to just try and get some sleep.

      Short Semi-Lucid
      I don't know how it happened, but after falling asleep I found myself in a pitch black area. I knew something was up and came to the conclusion I was dreaming. So I decided to do a few things. First on the list was to create a spaceship. I turned around and saw only part of this huge behemoth I created. It was clear, too clear. I could see every detail in it and if I kept looking at it I thought I'd go mad. But when I averted my gaze, I found myself in the rings of what had to have been Saturn. Huge asteroids began flying towards me, and rather than stabilizing my dream, I woke up. It was all very brief and probably only lasted around thirty seconds.

      Defending the City
      Once again, falling asleep, I dreamt I was in large metropolis of some sorts. I was on the roof of a high-rise surround by other, taller buildings. The technology and architecture looked like it was in the future, with computers and holographic displays. Judging by the large amounts of people, there was a celebration going on. Two people, a hefty guy who looked like he was in the military and a shorter, younger guy with his hair up in a ponytail stood out among the crowd. I was chatting with them when out of nowhere an earthquake shakes the entire place. After it ended, a few people gasped as they looked out onto the ocean off in the distance. Some Lovecraftian horror began shambling forth. It was indescribable, yet I felt no fear.

      I know that the two guys and I had fought it, but I have no recollection of the weapons we used. Apparently, every week some creature either emerges from the sea or flies down to terrorize the city. Why that was, was not known. "Weeks" in my dream passed like minutes, as we fought more and more of the huge creatures. The last one came once again from the sea. It swam around the docks before morphing into a gigantic, destructive 'thing'. But once we killed it, there were no more.

      I went to the intelligence department of the city where everything was recorded and archived and pulled up the footage of the last creature. It had spoken about why it was attacking the city though I vaguely remember the message. It had something to do with the expansion of the metropolis.

      Through a Portal
      After I heard the audio clip, my dream began to develop more surreal qualities about it. I went through some portal and watched a few medieval peasants build a village, then, out of nowhere, I was stopped by a dentist and told my wisdom teeth are coming through. I felt the back part of my gums with my tongue and confirmed that I indeed needed to get them removed. It was there that my dream ended.
    15. Just a Fragment

      by , 06-04-2013 at 08:50 AM
      Memory One

      Don't really remember much other than I'm playing God and flooding towns with water when I hear my mother calling me for some odd reason. I quickly leave the town to go attend to whatever it was that I was needed for.

      Memory Two


      This one is a bit more detailed. I was exploring a fairly lush city. The architecture reminds of some of Syd Mead's lighter and brighter works, with whitewashed towers and green parks in between. Out of nowhere, I get this need to rescue a few people and escape the area. One was a little old lady, the second was an engineer of some sorts. The engineer, ready to commit suicide, needed persuasion to escape with us. There were more people in my party, but I can't quite recall who or how many. I was on the verge of getting the engineer to come with us when I woke up.


      It's a start, and certainly something I wish I had remembered more of.
