    1. Short lucid, testing things out

      by , 01-14-2024 at 11:05 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      I had a lucid dream. It was fairly vivid.
      I was in the middle of a dream when it started to shift and I realized whats up. Then It shifted and now I was infront of my house, late evening. It was getting dark, I looked around asking questions for some reason.
      I looked back, the buildings looked a bit different as I expected, I couldnt see clearly.
      Anyhow, I tried to manipulate the dream and tested this invisible keyboard, cause I theorized that associations are the best sources to manipulate dreams, but it didnt work, I wanted to make it daytime again I think.
      Then I tried to fix my vision, it was like I had no glasses on, so I tried another association, I imagined there is a focuser on the side of my head, and turned it and I almost got a good focus, but then it also stopped working and reverted to glassless focus.
      And then I woke up.


      So I theorized that associations are the best sources to manipulate dreams. Which partly worked, the first attempt didnt, then the second one kinda did, but then it stopped working.
      I'd like to look more into it, come up with new experiments.

    2. Escaping from feral beasts

      by , 01-14-2024 at 10:58 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      Another wild dream
      Me and my dad were in some suburbs trying to escape, it was some kind of survival world, overcast weather.
      But the danger were animals, like they got wilder and changed even, they were a lot more aggressive, I've seen whole lot of breeds of dogs that would tear apart anyone on sight.
      Somehow we could outrun them, or just go past them by pretending to be relaxed, then once I saw a pack of dogs tearing away one dog behind fences.
      It was night, and we got followed by a pack too and we pretended to be relaxed so they followed us but didn't attack.
      Then I saw a small way between two fences to an open field and I started to walk there but dad wandered off, idk why...
      Anyways I started to pick up the pace when I saw wild squirrels but now they were darker, and has messier fur and were more aggressive and could jump up like 2 meters or so.
      And those started to get on me too but then I started to levitate and evade those things.
      Then once I got to the open field I started to fly and I was really good at it, and now it was daytime. Sunny weather.
      I flew to the other side of the open field where a safe camp was in a forest, then flew back to dad somehow I knew his location.
      He just made out to the open field but was being followed , I speed at him and take him up a high hill and drop there I almost fell off .
      We were in front of a hospital, I saw parents carrying their kids here and there...
    3. Busride, tornados, a weird guys house

      by , 01-04-2024 at 11:41 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      It was me and a few other people and someone lets call her F, idk what she was doing there, traveling like all of us probably
      We were in one of those travel buses have this big spacious entry where you walk up to the long row of seats
      We were somewhere in germany, going between hills and villages, when suddenly the weather got pretty stormy, and suddenly abnormally fast and violent tornadoes popped up randomly, sized randomly, I saw one that was a whole lot faster than our bus, but we havent got any serious ones near us, just little dust devil like ones that only nudged the bus a bit
      Driver got really panicked, we barely ran out the violent tornadoes that seemed to be mostly behind us, we got to a shopping centre of some sort in middle of the plains, the driver wanted to park there and think things through
      but it kept coming, the driver moved the bus around back to the road, I told him where to go to guide him, soon we got out of it somehow....but now apparently, it was of a survival setup, we werent travelling, we were surviving, the whole set up of the dream was of a survival one... anyhow while we were fooling around on the bus, F started to look like man so I was like dude you look like a man, then she shifted back to her original form but this time had a different hairstyle... then the bus stopped near a neighborhood, we continued the road on karts with engines, that had an odd shape, basically it was fully covered, like a car, but kart sized...
      actual cars were all over the place, we were avoiding them, then some sort of situation happened again, and we looked for a house to break into, and there was a house that was barricaded by cars stacked on eachtoher by the road, we got past that with some maneuvering, then got in to the door, we got in with ease, I went in first, there didnt seem to be anyone, I went in the living room, thats where i met the owner of the house
      this guy was odd, had this strong blue facepaint or mask on him and these funky sunglasses that had this red-purple chrome reflection, he took of the mask and introduced himself
      so I was like we came running away from storms and stuff, and he was like he saw us but let us in since we werent careful enough to inspect the place, almost like he set us up
      I was like oh no, I shouldve been careful, this couldve been a big mistake to make, anyhow
      he seemed to be friendly, didnt attack us from the start, but something was off about him, his looks and his manners, he clearly didnt mean good for us in the long run, was kind devious
      then he went to take a look at the team, F was fiddling with something in the other room, then the guy was like I'm gonna beat you up
      then I got mad I warned him if he does anything I'll see him be dealt with, and thats when I woke up

    4. A weird dream with its own world and history

      by , 12-26-2023 at 07:57 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      It felt like I'm in the middle of a Konami game, think resident evil
      I remember we were preparing for Christmas when we got warned that some sort of paranormal army of zombie like monsters emerged due to a catastrophy of some sort and we only have just ten minutes left to hide, somehow censuring any sort of human information mattered, somehow this isn't the first time it happened, at a point I chosed a character, it was a brunette woman with mid-short hair but halfway I was still me, kinda like in a different body as a player idk, some chaos ensued in the streets while some characters of a crew of some kind came to help me and my family prepare,, they had weapons too, so i grabbed my boots, and coat, when i started to hear one of the enemy approaching having some sort of evil monologue about how they will find all of us and we can't hide and about the event in the world that made things the way they are, regarding the catastrophy
      So we bolted for an attic some sort, my house and street was different this time there were some sky reaching structures there, so we entered an attic a very big and tall one basically a tower, in there it was dark, on a large wall of weird wooden ladders we started to climb up just when the enemy came in it was scary as shit, somehow we had fleshlights, as we went up I started to see all kinds of weird murals , dragons and idk what kind of entities on a large rug holding something with many colours that pours water out idk, and I saw little notes on the walls hanging too and I thought those are the stories of the life of others, or at least pieces of them, then i remembered that the catastrophy somehow affected the stories of everything, hence the world setting, then we eventually got up on top of a tower that's pretty much s skyscraper , then i got separated from my character again, i just looked around, more there were guns, it was like i was on the tutorial part, but then my supposed character started to argue about the right for a normal life with the crew, it didn't lead anywhere, she cried, and then i guess we started to get used to the new way of things,
      At this point idk what happened but a little bit later everyone returned for Christmas shopping but this time the main information on pretty much everything was blanked out with white paper, I was in Tesco, it was dimly lit now which have the whole place even more of a Christmas vibe, I got in a talk with a woman there about the whole event, how they shouldn't let us in after this recent event and how blanking out "human information" really does nothing, which supposedly makes raids like this less likely to occur and that's basic procedure made by the gov for safety,
      And then I woke up
    5. Gory dreams again

      by , 11-25-2023 at 10:10 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      I dreamt I was in the middle of some crazy military chaos in some densely populated city
      Spoiler for gory:

      but it was really fucked up, hard to watch, idk how I didnt wake up then



      Then I was in some sort of band , me and a 3-4 others , we were friends sort of
      we got out of somewhere, a brawl or something, I only had a hammer, each of the dudes had different similarly not too good weaponry
      my shirt was teared apart...
      It was night, were were walking somewhere on a road, in the middle of nowhere, plains, trees and lots of bushes and grass, only the moon lit up the scene and maybe a few lamps
      I was singing a viking song , we talked about the lifestyle
      suddenly we were ambushed by 4 or so similar guys, one of them had a spear, the others idk
      I fought one or two off, got them on the head with the hammer, the spear guy came, tried to stab me but couldnt, I deflected it with a hammer somehow, always missing only by inches
      the other guys were killing the rest of the enemy, I was trying to make an opening
      then I made distance , and he threw the spear, he missed, then ran towards the other guys, he apparently had a sword, I picked up the spear and ran
      just before he could cut them down I pierced him hard , he fell
      one of us took out his phone and turned on the flashlight on it
      apparently two of my friends were cut, one was already dead, the other was bleeding out fast but I couldnt see where,
      while one hooded guy, the enemy was writhing in pain on top of them,
      idk how I felt, but I wanted to do something for these two, honor the dead, with the blood of the enemy
      Spoiler for gory:

      I tried ask my friend where was he hurt, maybe he could be saved, but I couldnt see, but he said it's ok,he seemed to be smiling...
      and I just had to watch him starting to fade out
      and then I woke up
    6. In the hotel... again

      by , 11-17-2023 at 04:36 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      I was in the hotel...again, I came to know this by remembering through dream memory, I've been there before.
      It felt more like a level Ive completed already.
      For some reason in finland, I was lost in this large hotel, it had all kinds of rooms and halls, it was quite ornate, think 17 century french palaces, but a bit less fancy.
      Idk what I was looking for, quests I guess...but I knew that there were layers to that realm and I had to switch by them... at one of the doors I encountered the echoes of an enemy or something hostile that took the form of a man, but it couldnt hurt me now, only saw and heard its monstrous echoes...
      I went to some sort of dining hall, there were people down there, eating, while I was up there on some sort of balcony, near the ceiling, that was really high, like 200 meters.
      There was a girl there, I wanted to ask her for directions but then I woke up.
    7. Chilling in a swamp

      by , 07-03-2023 at 10:57 AM (Nef's dream journal)
      I got lucid after going back to sleep
      I kind of were subtle about realizing I'm asleep, carefully checked my hands, then just going on, I thought the dream is against me being lucid
      I went out then everything turned into nothing
      then I tried to stabilize because there was nothing infont of me really, just sludges of colour
      I thought then I guess I can try imagine a scene, then it kind of came to me
      now I was in a house, looking out of a window with no glasses
      a swamp formed in front of me, there was.... water was everywhere, calm water, and green trees and a blueish lightish fog not too thick, made me feel like I'm in a closed comforting space
      I heard some birds in the distance
      I just stood there and absorbed the landscape, just chilling, it was really nice

    8. A s c e n d

      by , 06-13-2022 at 11:51 AM (Nef's dream journal)
      It started with a normal dream of going to work, me and me dad and his friend got off of a train, it was some kind of futuristic train station, we were going to work
      Then went downstairs where the stairs were empty at times
      But I was always lucid somewhat
      When we got down there things were different it was like a scene from my old school life blended in
      That's when I started to dig down into my negative feelings, mostly of how I didn't get a girlfriend in school in high school etc. I started to hear and see alternate stories of the same things, I became my alternate selves, re living their bitterness, or that was my dream memories, and just got deeper and deeper until I accepted death wholly or something similar to that
      And then I was at home , or at least at some kind of level, with no hope and kind of consumed by hopelessness, I went out and the sky was covered in storm clouds, like multiple thick layers of cumulo nimbi only lighted by a light source high up in the sky, it was like a painting, it was beautiful,
      Then I was ready, for the unknown, usually I don't engage with scenes like that in a dream or so that's what I thought, but this time I didn't give a damn
      I knew there was something there, the place represented my mind my whole being I think I'm not sure,

      So then I said hello? Come on take me. My voice was weak but it echoed everywhere.
      And as I embraced the sky I rose up into the sky and started spinning slowly , and my whole body was overcome with this feeling of healing and comfort, and I heard an upbeat kind of ambient music and I started to have some kind of monologue about the death of the suffering, and how I set it off and someone named mark
      The sky cleaned up and it was a warm blue sky and I floated there, marinating in healing energy
      And then I heard my mom's voice, but it wasn't real because she is still sleeping

      side note: my feet need cold water, they heat up a lot and causes me to wake up, but some cold water calms my nerves down like nothing else in the world and then I sleep like a baby
    9. unknown language??

      by , 06-01-2022 at 10:39 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      Idk if I even dreamt it , or maybe it was a nap dream??
      but anyways, I think I dreamt of one of those language demonstrating youtube videos
      all I remember is that the word for "what" was "a" and I tought to myself "how strange"
      and left the video

    10. Possible lucid dream with a discovery about stabilizing

      by , 05-20-2022 at 04:52 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      It all started with me doing something that I knew I couldn't do in real life
      or so the sense of limitlessness was the main hint for me

      So when I came to, I tried my usual routine of trying to stabilize
      I was at home ofc, and it didn't work, the dream started to fall apart, the usual "fog" started to take over
      That's when it randomly came, Instead of tactile I focused on visuals, the colors and the detail around me
      And it all came back
      and for the first time in my dream-life , I left my house
      And it tried to fall apart 2 or 3 times until I got to the streets but I did the same again, and it worked
      after that things got blurry for me for a minute or a half, and somehow I was at a meat factory that was supposedly in the next street
      I met my old friend there, he was working there, and he was younger now, looked totally different than irl, more like when we were in high school
      I was like "man , this is a dream ,this is not real, stop for a moment look at me, this is a dream", he was kinda suprised and a bit annoyed, as if I'm hallucinating or something
      then we went out, I observed the streets , it was night, the sun was about to rise, but the stars were still shining bright, I looked at the cars passing by, it was kind of vivid.
      That's when I woke up, after 4-5 minutes of time I bought with this trick, the fog now took over, and I felt that I have to wake up now.



      note: potential discovery is that focusing on the visuals around you might stabilize dreams or bring it,and yourself back from the waking process
      although I can't tell if that was a full dream or a very late morning hypnagogic session, it was over 10 am so I can't tell if it would work in a mid REM dream the same way
      also somehow I just can't seem to find the ideal time to try lucid dreaming, in teh morning, whether I wake up at 4-5-6 am, I'm just always unable to go back to sleep if I dont completely let go of myself
    11. Crazy Train dream #n

      by , 05-16-2022 at 10:49 AM (Nef's dream journal)
      I have a very mildly recurring type of dreams
      its always about a train trip to somewhere
      the first ones were ok, nothing really unusual
      I saw some plains, steppes, it was nice

      This time it was different
      I was going to Vienna for some reason, some kind of event idk
      but I didnt book at any hotel , so I thought I'll have to survive on the streets for like few days
      anyways I got on
      it turned into something like a rollercoaster but with trains
      there were jumps and hoops sometimes
      one particular case I remember was that the train went under a bridge
      made a jump the an ollie, the whole train was gliding on the tracks sideways
      then went back to normal
      I was really scared for a moment
      the train conductor didnt even flinch, like if that's a normal part of a train trip

      by , 03-22-2022 at 06:14 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      I was hurrying somewhere by the road into the city centre, its a long one
      I wanted to get to something, i dont know what
      the weather was already but, but it quickly got worse
      a big storm came, things turned night time dark, rain started getting heavy

    13. Ritual

      by , 08-21-2021 at 01:11 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      I was in a valley that had huge platforms and the army was coming monthly to ritually transfer raw materials to the people there(edited)
      And I was able to fly kinda
      On the way there at night some **** kept annoying me so I tied her up and threw her down a mountain and she rolled into a giant oven to which the entrance was a large platform of almost melting hot steel and she burned alive in that(edited)
      I kinda felt guilty and condemned because I already killed a few innocent people in my dreams
      Then I saw the transfer ritual , a bunch of people and trucks on top of eachother just circling in a weird way and I only heard loud scratching noise of iron or something rusty idk
      After that I was babysitting a little girl who was kinda sweet , really interested in the world, and we and some people went to a Berber village , and I had a slingshot thing that made getting to rooftops easy, and I was in an assassin robe for some reason, hood and all
      I was kinda relieved when I woke up and realize that I didn't kill anyone

    14. The Matrix engulfs all

      by , 12-25-2020 at 11:48 AM (Nef's dream journal)
      barely remember the dream
      I dreamt about the matrix engulfing all space and time
      it was like a green static wall from the outside
      everyone was becoming part of it
      but I did not become one with it, even if I entered
      I left

      felt lost ,no way out , everything will be swallowed by it

    15. Tornadoes again

      by , 12-14-2020 at 10:18 AM (Nef's dream journal)
      I was going home from the cellar again, when small vortices formed, I panicked and ran further down the hill.
      The city was quite different now. There were very tall trees covering the sky , but a tornado formed there too...
      I don't remember the rest
