    Caffeine storm

    by , 02-09-2015 at 12:16 AM (743 Views)
    Almost skipped wbtb, but woke up had around 80 mg caffeine double espresso, 500mg lecithin and spent some time reviewing the goals but not too much.

    I feel some pressure in the bladder and make a note that preferably need to go before lds start. I'm in the process of falling asleep and I begin to see this picture more clearly, it's useless as a scene (drawn face open mouth), but just concentrate on it to focus, it begins to move inside like a tunnel. Scene change ethereal layer, running backwards, then new scene.

    Finally, a bed scene, very realistic and with full body, got integrated in the body really fast, ready to move, carefully get up from bed. Move around a bit. My old room, head towards the balcony. Old doors, closed but not locked, open them. I go outside, it's magical. The sun is shining, the sky is clear blue, very vivid colors. I can feel the warmth of the sunshine and also hear a happy song coming from far away. The change in colors and light from the darkness in bed the moment before is impressive. I can also feel a very pleasant breeze and notice the plants to my side and remember one of my goals to interact with them.
    The dream thins out and I wake up.

    I pay a short visit to the bathroom and review the dream.

    Soon after I fall asleep, find myself back into our old place again. This time I face a dark room but decide to go inside. There is a sofa right in front of me and I roll it over, thinking super strength it becomes very light. Beneath it another sofa covered with clothes. I recall my clean up goal (try to bring order into ld, see what happens) and start throwing clothes to the sides, cleaning up the sofa of objects. Some more appear but I am almost done, finally I sweep the last clothes to the side and just observe if anything will happen (but with blank mind). The dream thins out.

    I find myself in the living room of the same place, parents here walking around, we talked about something (rather made some comments). Everything is super vivid, bright and colorful again although the definition of objects not as good, rather blurry. I walk around the room and look at as many objects and furniture as possible, noting how orderly this room is. Everything seems at the right place and the furniture is more or less the same. The only objects not quite from this room originally are a buddhist medallion and a large chunk of amethyst crystal on the floor. I tk it up and dad catches it.

    I recall the storm task and head towards the balcony. I'm thinking, ok, how am going to change the weather which is bright and sunny as can be perceived inside the room to bad weather. By the time I reach the window, the sky is fully covered in clouds and it's already raining. Well, that's quite convenient and I take a moment to think how my thought manifested so quickly. The only thing I need right now is some wind and I want to add a few tornadoes too. I stare at the horizon which brings the memory of many storms and alien invasion dreams and this facilitates the creation of more stormy conditions. I tell dad to help me with this, more as an act of self assurance, then twist the clouds a bit till I form a tornado and another one just next to it. I look to the side and see a huge one has appeared very close to where we are now. I think briefly about this, then the dream fades.

    I find myself back in my old room, thinking that I've been having all my dreams in our old place today. Mom and dad are still here too, they come and start hugging me while I'm watching our reflection in the window. I remember the candy store task and decide it's time to leave the building, heading over the balcony. Mom is overly concerned about this but I go ahead and stretch/climb down and then jump the last part of the distance. Some slight instability but the dream is still here. I walk around and move my eyes from object to object trying to simulate and stimulate REM as I feel the dream slipping away. I think about where I am headed, my instinct is to go to where there are some stores down the street, though that feels too far for me to make it. I wonder if just turning right the other corner wouldn't be a better idea. Still decide for the original stores. All this contemplation leads to the place changing and something that looks like a street pops up where there isn't one, I examine it to see if there are any stores but it's more like residential buildings.

    I continue down the street where there are some scary looking guys with guns. There is another group fighting them, later the two groups mix. The whole street changes and while I'm trying to evade them I lose lucidity.


    Wake. Review.

    Other dreams I can't recall. Short ld moment where I watch my reflection this time in a tv. I make myself float up in the air and then plank while floating. My reflection does the same, perhaps even better than me. I'm excited because I realize that I am also manipulating my reflection's movements.

      Cool dream series as always. You seem to be on top of your tasks. I seem to forget mine unless I DEILD or WILD. It's weird how that works. I was impressed with how you made the tornadoes. Storm dreams always fascinated me. Maybe it's because I secretly want to see a live tornado (from a safe distance). I also notice how, especially on a galantamine night, I end up in the same place or have a common theme to most of my dreams. I guess it's just that we're unconsciously recalling previous dreams and bringing parts along. Interesting.

      Very interesting series of Lucids NyxCC!
      I very often find myself in dark rooms when lucid, so being right from the beginning in a bright, Magical place is awesome!

      Thanks! Caffeine + wbtb seem to make a big difference for my task recall.

      Hey, didn't you recently fly into a tornado yourself? That was pretty bold! Still something for me to try out, if I have the guts.

      Cool observation. Maybe different supps evoke different moods and the corresponding places. I often dream of my old place, especially in lds but having so many one after the other was weird. I think maybe take advantage of this for future teleportation experiments.

      Very nice lucids Nyx!! I want to do the storm task and I like how you worked it! I also liked this:

      I walk around and move my eyes from object to object trying to simulate and stimulate REM as I feel the dream slipping away.
      Congrats!!

      Great job, Nyx, congratulations on Task of the Month! That 80mg of caffeine is a pretty substantial dose, and it seems to have worked great for you here!

      I liked how your dad was in there with you helping on the storm task, adding some dream control of his own. That is a great idea! Especially if I'm hanging around a DC that's also a lucid dreamer, what could be more natural than to pool your efforts with that person for extra dream control.

      The idea to bring more order to the dream scene was interesting too! Where'd you come up with the idea for that experiment?

      Thanks Canis!

      Yes, the amount was close to my insomnia tolerance limit, but luckily I managed to fall asleep without much trouble. It seems, I need to recallibrate the dosage once again, as I have been more sleepy recently so a slightly higher dose may be ok.

      The idea to bring more order to the dream scene was interesting too! Where'd you come up with the idea for that experiment?
      I've been having some thoughts about objects in the dream world, chaos vs order and also trying to see if there is some difference between the real world and the dream world with regards to that.
