    City tour

    Entry 1/2

    Wbtb: did a shorter than usual wbtb from a natural wake where I had 1/3 latte. Did a quick goal revision and couple of mantras, felt asleep within a reasonable amount of time.

    Had about 3 vivid dreams/fragments, then the ld.

    The beginning of the ld's hard to recall. I'm on a street that looks familiar and we comment on this with a female dream friend, some remarks about journalling too.

    One thing that is very peculiar about the place is that all the buildings' colors are extremely soft, chalky color. Each one is in different color but very pale. They look extremely beautiful. I am aware that this is a dream, but have somewhat lower level of lucidity. Vaguely remember how we went to this other part of town.

    My lucidity and rational thinking sharpens as we go on our way. We are a group of people and someone is leading us (I can't see who at the moment). This is a pretty good arrangement since it keeps me busy and my secondary ld goal is exactly to walk around, see as much as possible for as long as possible.

    This is the city center now and I catch a glimpse of a gothic cathedral behind one of the street corners. It is also colorful with the same pale chalky colors and material. There's the overall impression that the whole city center colors are like this. At the same time the quality is extremely high, everything is very 3D, stable and vivid. I spot a female classmate in the crowd on the square, which I assume is part of our group. I am happy about that and say something to her, but she starts laughing and replies with some weird sounds, her eyes look as if she's wearing lenses too. Not a smart DC I conclude and lose a bit of interest.

    It's almost like a scene change as we keep walking down another street. I cross the street and examine the ground below my feet and it feels so detailed and real, there's a piece of mini-trash I try to identify, a scaffold area in front of me. I get distracted by a small white dog that I pay too much attention to and it sticks to my leg, trying to bite me. I try as much as possible to be indifferent and get rid of it, but it sticks, so I have no choice, now I want to break its front teeth to deactivate it. I take it with my hands and imagine I am super strong, trying to break the front teeth that look kind of weird too. Not much success so I swirl around and throw the dog away.

    I feel disgusted and start rummaging in a dream bag of mine, hoping to find wet wipes to clean my hands, which I do. I feel like I have messed up, being distracted by the dog instead of following the group. This has caused the surroundings to change and we are in another part of town, lots of green trees can be seen. The group leader is now walking with my classmate further down the street, while I am trying to catch up with them together with a blond girl, also at this point part of the group.

    They slow down and I face the group leader/our guide, a woman in her 40es. She seems very sympathetic and lively and I feel it's time to ask her some questions. As I speak, I notice and think about how easy it has been for me to speak and act in this dream, how stable everything has been and for such a long time. I ask her a number of questions, to give me some tips in general and also regarding my meditation practices. Unfortunately, she gives me an answer that doesn't make much sense, about some guy bringing her here. I feel somewhat disappointed as I thought she might be a useful dream guide, she has been guiding us on this city tour all along. The dream fades.

      Congrats, Nyx! Nice vividness on this one. And of course, a little swig of latte at WBTB to give it that extra punch. Very nice.

      It sounds like you weren't pleased with how things went with the dog but I actually think you handled it better than you might realize. We know that the right thing to do is to ignore problems, think of other things, and let the bad stuff just fade on its own... but the problem is that this is so much easier to think about than to do sometimes! If things don't go well and it comes down to a little scuffle, throwing (or force-pushing!) the adversary far out of sight seems like one of the best of the "non-perfect" options.

      I'd love to have the calmness of an enlightened, meditating yogi in every lucid dream, but unfortunately for me... most dreams I don't.

      Too bad about the tour guide not turning out to be the dream guide. I think you had just the right idea though!

      Well done.

      At least the dog didn't cause the dream to end, etc. It would be nice (and inspiring) to find a meaningful dream guide during the dream.

      The Caffeine seems to help with ld I have found, providing I take it at the right time.

      Thanks for the encouragement. Indeed, it is still good that I got rid of it one way or another and managed to catch up with my fake dream guide.

      I think it's high time for me to start learning how to repel things so that they simply don't get stuck like this, have a magnetic or anti-gravity shield. Then I would automatically be force-pushing before any intruders even have the chance to come near.

      @ CL, Highlander

      Yeah, those lattes really rock!
