    1. 8-13-14 Swimming

      by , 08-13-2014 at 11:35 PM
      This is from this morning, after a natural awakening at 4 AM:

      I'm going on a field trip with a bunch of kids from school. I'm very unaware of what's going on until we get to our destination: a massive, half-indoor, half-outdoor pool. The only way to get into the pool is a giant metal slide. My boyfriend is with me until we get to the slide, and then he seems to vanish. I don't notice until I'm in the water. My awareness spikes at this point, and I think gleefully, It's great to be swimming in a deep pool again! (I haven't been to a pool in years.) I am particularly delighted at not being able to touch the bottom of the pool. I spin around and notice a ladder to get out. I also notice my boyfriend's disappearance. I decide to go look for him, and I swim towards the ladder. A wave of newcomers sliding down the slide blocks my way suddenly. As they move away, I swim forward again, only to find that I can't move. It feels as if my kicking and paddling is accomplishing nothing, and I give up for a moment, confused.

      Pretty sure I woke up at this point.

      My dream this morning:

      Started out on a roller coaster. I was strapped in, holding onto the shoulder harnesses, and I asked my friend beside me, "Are there any upside down sections?" (First off, I don't really like loopy roller coasters, and second, I was watching a show on TV about them yesterday.)

      "No," my friend said.

      I didn't believe her for some reason, and I got a sudden birds-eye view of the coaster, and the loop that was halfway thru it.

      "Yes there is!" I said, slightly annoyed with her. But then I got caught up in the ride, lost my awareness.

      I ended up in my school after that. Again, I had some sort of assignment to complete, and I was alone. I was having trouble with it, and a friendly teacher found me and took me to her office to give me some advice. I can't remember what she said but I remember being half awed and half confused by it. After I spoke with her I went to join the rest of my classmates in the gym, where everyone was gathered for some reason. I woke up soon afterwards.
    3. 7-6-14 Spirit Ships

      by , 07-07-2014 at 04:54 PM
      Woke up out of this dream yesterday. I can't recall the beginning of this dream, but I ended up in my high school, a camera in hand and a nerdy, annoying friend at my side. The school resembled a museum; it was full of strange and awe-inspiring artifacts. I was supposed to be taking pictures, but my friend kept reaching over and knocking the camera out of my hand, forcing me to repeatedly pick it up and fix it.

      We started at the top floor and worked our way down. When we finally reached the bottom floor, I saw a security guard standing beside a strange, glass door. The glass was double-paned, and there were hundreds of tiny little bottles with even tinier model ships in them, all fit perfectly into the glass door. Some of the ships floated on sand (mostly white sand, but there were a few ships that rested on colorful sands; one ship in particular was on purple sand, and it reminded me strongly of a pirate ship) while others floated, seemingly unsupported, in the middle of their bottles.

      "What are they?" I asked no one in particular. The little glass bottles and their caged ships were beautiful. They each seemed to have their own essence, or aura. I wanted to look at each and every one of them.

      "They're spirits," my friend told me. (He meant ghosts, I thought.)

      The security guard started to speak, but I woke up before I could make anything out of it.

    4. 7-4-14

      Part of the dream I had this morning:

      I am at the barn with my dad and my friend D. I walk outside with my dad, as if to leave. We get in his truck, and he starts to back out of the parking spot. He backs the truck up so that it's facing the opposite direction we need to go. I don't pay any attention to him, assuming he's just going to circle around the end of the parking lot. We drive past another car, and we see the driver fall out of the car onto the pavement.

      The man is thrashing strangely, his face blank. I get a bad feeling about it, and look around at my dad, expectant. He says something about getting out of there fast, and then he swings the truck around to face the curb of the parking lot. Before us is the steep hill that leads down and away from the barn, to a two-lane road at the bottom, and a forest beyond the road.

      "Don't tell anyone," my dad says, and then he drives over the curb and down the steep hill. We reach the road, and the truck is bouncing and jerking around.

      "I've had enough roller coaster dreams!" I say, but I am grinning, and my dad laughs. (I evidently realized I was dreaming, but it lasted for about 5 seconds, and I was maybe a 2 on the lucidity scale.)

      We continue driving along the road, but it's no longer the road I thought it was. It takes on a very roller coaster-esque look; there is nothing but blackness surrounding the road, and the road itself looks worn and broken in places. I watch it flash by under us, fascinated. (I must've retained at least some lucidity, because I was under the vague impression that nothing could go wrong.)

      One of my WBTB alarms woke me up out of this dream this morning:

      I am standing in front of my boyfriend, A. He's holding a journal, and talking animatedly. I don't pay much attention until he mentions dreams; he says he's been writing his dreams down in his journal. He flourishes the journal he's holding, and offers it to me.

      Here's where my memory gets hazy: I am very surprised at what A said, and my attention focuses on the journal. It looks identical to my own DJ. I look back at A, and he hasn't moved.

      *Then my alarm goes off. I drowsily turned it off and went right back to bed, I think. Didn't write the dream down until about two hours ago.
    6. Bees

      by , 06-30-2014 at 05:09 PM
      This is a dream I had quite a while ago:

      I am in a playground. The ground is covered in mulch and I'm sitting on a swing. I swing back and forth a bit, and then I notice something. A flash of yellow. Suddenly, there is a giant, man-sized bee next to me, on the swing beside me. At first, I'm alarmed. But this bee seems friendly. The yellow on his body is indescribable, and I am intrigued by it. It seems to have depth. We sit in companionable silence for a short while, when the sound of angry buzzing reaches us. Two more giant bees appear. The first bee flies off of the swing, and tries to stop the two angry bees. One of them is coming at me stinger-first now. I panic, but I can't seem to move. The first bee is struggling desperately against the one that is trying to sting me. Behind me, the other hostile bee has one of my arms in its grasp, and it is struggling to pull me off of the swing.

      I wake up just a few seconds later, after seeing the stinger of the hostile bee, hovering just over my legs.

    7. Fragments

      by , 06-24-2014 at 06:01 PM
      Dream fragment #1:
      I am walking around the side of my house with my friend D. There is a flash of bright light and the scene changes abruptly; where the side of my house should be, I now see many white, delicate flowers, illuminated brightly from behind by golden sunlight. The flowers hang from the branches of a little tree. The sight of them stops me, and I sense my friend turn to complain about why I'm not following her. I feel overwhelmed by the beauty of what I'm seeing, and I ignore her.

      Dream fragment #2:
      (3rd person view) D and I are in a giant, deep pool. We are swimming along the side of the pool, which resembles a dock. (Switches to 1st person) I spot a little island of concrete out in the middle of the pool. It's pretty far, but I want to get out of the water, so I start for it, but D grabs my arm, and points to a ladder that she had been heading towards. For a moment I see the pool from a 3rd person view again, this time with a ladder. Then the scene seems to fast forward, and I'm climbing up the ladder behind D.

      Dream fragment #3 (from 6-22-14) - this was a very vague fragment, and I had very little awareness:
      Against a black background a see a table, surrounded by five or six horses. I only really see their heads and necks. One of them stretched it's neck out, pointing its nose to the center of the table. One or two others copy the first. I think vaguely of gambling. The scene starts to change before my eyes, to something greenish. (This last dream makes me laugh... The way the horses moved was like that kid game Hungry Hippos.)

    8. 6-20-14; Demon

      by , 06-20-2014 at 05:35 PM
      Had this dream this morning:

      I am in a car with my boyfriend, A, and we are driving on the road to the barn. Once we are there, we see his mom, and an ambulance. There is screaming and someone is crying. I don't see her, but I know A's sister is in the ambulance. There is a general feeling of oppression and fear around the place. The EMT's figure out that A's sister was possessed by a demon, and they "fix" her.

      The scene switches to the inside of a large building. Everything is dimly lit by a source-less, blue light. A has disappeared, and now there is a blond-haired girl with me. She has a very sinister look to her, and I know right away that the demon found a new host. There are some other people around, and the demon-girl tries to convince us that we're safe here, all we have to do is listen to her. I argue otherwise, and say outright that she is a demon. Everyone gets really scared, but the demon-girl keeps her cool.

      The scene changes again, and me and the other people are standing in front of the girl. We're in a very similar building, but it looks more ominous, and older. She is explaining something to us; a challenge of sorts. She tells us that we can leave if we can find a way out. I don't think she mentions what will happen if we can't find an exit. It seems pretty obvious.

      I go off with one or two other people, looking for a way out. The two others with me disappear after a short while, and I find myself in a underground tunnel system. It looks eerily like the inside of some giant monster's intestines, but I feel confident and reassured now; I know the exit is near. No one else is near me, and I haven't seen the demon girl for some time. I'm safe.

      I wake up just as a purplish light comes into view at the end of the tunnel.

    9. Hovering in my room

      by , 06-08-2014 at 05:42 PM
      I wake up, and sit up in bed, as if to get up. Something makes me hesitate. My room should be dark, but it's lit up slightly, with a blueish light. I feel off. "I could be dreaming," I think. "I can fly!" I tilt my head back and imagine myself lifting off my bed and I float up towards the ceiling. The ceiling seems to waver, as if it isn't actually there, and I think to myself that I'll fly right through it and outside.

      The dream either ends or completely changes at this point. Can't remember anything else.

      This dream is from this morning. It was vivid, but my memory of it is very patchy.

      I'm in a gigantic space ship. There is a lot going on, lots of people are around. I am supposed to be going to investigate a planet/moon with one or two others. Some DCs help me get on a high-tech, fancy space suit, and the captain of the ship shows up. Next thing I know, I'm sitting before a wide, thin computer screen, and the planet we're going to is shown on the screen, along with all sorts of numbers and percentages off to the right side of the screen, and some other things to the left. The captain is telling me about the planet as I look at it on the screen, and I know that my partner(s) are getting the same briefing. I feel as if I've been doing this for a long time, but it's all somewhat new, too. The planet looks like its tinged with greens and purples and blues. It's the last thing I see before the dream ends.

      This is a dream fragment from this morning. Been a while since I dreamt of the beach.

      I am standing on a sand dune overlooking the ocean. My dad is beside me. The dune is maybe 5 feet high, and it's damp. The sky is dark and cloudy, as if it's been raining or is going to. I decide to go down the dune to stand on the beach. I look down at my feet as I go. I'm barefoot, and it's high tide; the water is right there at the bottom of the dune. It's clear and cool, and a few inches deep. I wade around for a little while, and then I climb back up the dune - not noticing that my footprints from before are gone - and I rejoin my dad.

    12. The Wave

      by , 05-25-2014 at 04:50 PM
      I can't remember exactly when I had this dream. I had it on three seperate occasions, but by the last time I'd learned what to expect and I woke myself up before anything happened.

      The dream: I'm at a water park. It's on a sandy cliff beside the ocean. There is the entrance building, and then you see the main pool. Behind the main pool is a really interesting structure; thin wooden stilts hold up other pools, water slides, diving boards. The diving boards and water slides lead directly into the ocean. The pools are all full of people, some with floaties and some just swimming. There are even more people down below, on the thin beach at the bottom of the cliff and in the water. A set of wooden stairs is built into the sandy cliff wall. I find myself on the beach, and I go into the water with some friendly DCs. We swim out as far as we can, and we lose track of time. Our attention is abruptly brought to the water by one of the DCs. A massive wave is visible in the distance. It's like looking at a mountain, and it is getting bigger. The DCs around me are swimming frantically towards the shore, some of them shouting. We can see people streaming up the stairs to get away, but we're still ten or so yards out in the water. Things seem to fast forward then, and the DCs I had been with were in front of me, pulling themselves onto the stairs. I look back for the first time, and the wave is right there. The water is electric blue with tinges of green. It slams into us. I make a grab for the stairs, and my fingers brush the wood, but it feels slimy, like it's been underwater for a long time. I can't hold on. I feel the water surging me around violently for a few seconds, and then I wake up.
