    Crystal ball

    Late bed and ealy wake, no time to wbtb

    I find myself in a large room, looks like a mix between a shop and a bar. My awareness gradually goes up and I know I'm dreaming. I recall the task with the crystal ball and head over to the guy behind the counter. There are a few crystal balls that look like empty snow globes, but they are in the distance so I have to walk around a labyrinth of counters. I tell the DC working there to bring me the crystal ball, so that I don't have to maneuver myself all the way there. He is very uncooperative and refuses to do so. By the time I reach the counter those particular crystal balls pop out of existence.

    The dream becomes very dynamic, I almost lose all lucidity while some DCs next to me fight over which cakes they want to eat. There are a number of delicious cakes everyone wants to try. I get hold of one very tasty and start eating with my hands. I contemplate on that and my awareness goes up again, after all it's a dream, so I'm free to eat any way I want. I remember the crystall ball task again, this time the (same?) DC leaves a large crystal sphere next to me and I examine it. It's a very beautiful crystal ball with no stand, and little lines and cracks in star-like shapes can be seen inside. I make a mental note about those, then proceed to see the future. I look inside but it doesn't show anything, just becomes a little blurry. I decide to cover it with my hands, concentrate and then reveal it again.

    On and beyond the blurry surface, some objects become slightly more visible. I am still unable to fully understand what exactly it is showing but now it's almost as good as becoming part of another scene, while still being here in the bar/shop. Finally, I see a number of objects neatly arranged, like they are put on sale, on a sunny bright day on the street. Pretty much what I make out of the scene is that it shows some kind of a street stand with souvenirs or so. The zooming in almost transports me to the scene, but not quite. I interrupt the action and stop to contemplate on it for a while and review the task.

    Frag: Another later part of the dream/other dream where I once again think about completing the task and not doing a wbtb, and about using this techique as a teleport.

    Also, looking at my image in a mirror, dream ends soon after.

      Nice job, Nyx! Congratulations on getting the crystal ball Task of the Month!

      I totally felt your pain when you were blocked from that first set of crystal balls by those annoying counters rearranging themselves into a big, LD-impeding maze! Your prospective memory was completely on point throughout the dream, though, from the beginning all the way to the point at which you finally got that uncooperative DC to bring you what you asked for.

      It was interesting, too, how throughout the task it was almost like you were holding back a teleport. You know what I mean? It seemed like you would have naturally flowed into the new scene if you had given yourself a slight push in that direction.

      Very cool to think about, so I completely agree with the premise of the subsequent dream fragment you had that played on the same premise!

      Congratulations on the lucid. I'm glad you pulled it back together when you lost awareness.

      Thanks!

      Right, I was. This was partially because I didn't want to mess the task completion and partially as it wasn't something I was expecting and prepared for. It may really pay off to let go in such cases and see how things work out. Still need to work on my teleporting skills. Recently started watching "The tomorrow people", and I hope it will help solidify the schema in my mind.

      Thanks! I have to admit it's not the first time I lost lucidity around dream food either. Good thing I came to my senses after the tasting experience.

      Awesome! Congrats on the advanced TOTM! That must have taken some great control and a clear mind to stay in the scene and not be pulled into a new scene. That was the task that sounded most interesting to me...I gotta try it!

      Thanks! Yes, this is a great task, definitely give it a try whether this month or another time, it's totally worth it. Actually, I'd like to redo it in some future ld.
