    Flying in the cold

    WBTB, reviewed goals, recall prior to that quite poor. Late dinner is not a good idea.

    I'm at a non-existent apartment with bf. We are getting ready to go to bed on time when his friends come and stay for a while, making it impossible to do so. I am upset, smash a potato on the floor and then decide to leave - go to my old place to sleep.

    As I go out on the streets my awareness increases and I realize that I'm dreaming. My thinking is still clouded. I recall I forgot the keys in the previous place, but conclude there is no need to worry about that because I can just summon them. I try to take off flying with some initial difficulty launching. I briefly contemplate that I have been using this sort of flying in my dreams lately - slightly pushing towards the ground, something like a jump launch and then superman style.

    I am quickly gaining altitude, trying to orient myself above what I consider to be my home town. The scenery changes with lots of unknown streets and gets extremely cold. I feel the cold is hampering me from flying properly, the snow and people on the ground become a distraction. I decide to land in a snow-covered yard.


    My awareness diminishes as I go to inspect what's ahead. In the building ahead is an administrative refugee help center. Looks like it was founded a long time ago, there are 4 traditional Chinese characters on the wall. The place has gotten a lot of attention from the locals with journalists and a few unknown celebrities waiting to go inside. I excuse myself, remembering that I was originally headed home and leave.

    As I walk down the streets I see the stadium and know I should be near. I choose a shortcut by climbing a few buildings. As I climb this weirdly looking structure, with lots of metal shaped in strange forms, my awareness increases again. Finally I reach the top of the structure, which faces a well supervised office. I don't think passing through should be a big issue as I can technically go as I please. I sneak in and look for the door out. There are several doors, one of them has a female security guard talking to another DC. No matter which door I chose, she is going to notice me. Oh, well that doesn't really matter, does it? I decide to ignore all that and just exit the building. I know the DC has seen me. I know she finds this weird and would probably want to go after me. But I intend that she does not. She just looks at me and ignores me. At the same time, a feeling of regret overtakes me. I feel I have ruined this scenario by meddling with the natural course of events and now the story feels incomplete.

    Memory gap. I find myself at my old place. There's a minor leftover of awareness upon looking at the weird balcony and room being merged. The dream takes over my consciousness. I hear squeaks and other noises coming from the neighbours and see the neighbour kid playing on the balcony. He hasn't grown up at all, I think. Couple of minutes later, as if it's a game, he jumps off the balcony and hits the ground. I am terrified as I see his imminent death but even though he seems injured, he gets up and hurries into the building. I call his grandma (DS) to make sure he gets an examination as soon as possible.

      Hey, Nixy! It's been a minute. Good to see you got some lucidity. Congrats!!! I have been struggling so hard lately; I had lucid moment this morning but nothing to bother posting.

      I notice this interrupting DC scenario you had quite a bit in my dreams when I try to get lucid. I wonder if that's common in a lot of people and where it comes from. Maybe it's just the struggle that manifests?

      And the flying... Do you think that it gets difficult because maybe we aren't used to such things? Again I have very similar problems. I'm glad I'm not alone in this haha.

      Hey! Good to see you too ! Ahh, you should have posted anyways. I think it's helpful for the mind to go over those lucid and close to lucidity moments. It can bring more lds later on!

      Hmm, in a way I can relate it to our mind being conditioned to constantly follow some storyline whether awake or asleep. If you think about it, there's always something going on, whether it's at work, during games, tv, dreams, your mind constantly looks for a plot to follow. And those distracting DCs are a manifestation of that. If only we could get into the habit to pause every once in a while and have this moment's pause transfer to dreams...

      Yes, I think so. The switch from walking to flying seems more difficult these days. And yes, while we may have flown in a lot of dreams, it's not like we properly learned how to fly or get everyday practice.

      Good point. I didn't even write it down. I've been really lazy on the non lucid DJ lately. It just gets hard to wake up enough to record anything. Got to work on that. I actually have a whole lucid that I never posted from a few weeks ago. The memory is faded now.

      Makes sense to me. It's usually a good sign that I'm close and it sometimes leads into one of those in-dream-WILDs.

      Ah yes. Mindfulness. I was getting fairly decent at that at one time. Those daytime practices really help!
