    Leave the crate

    A great deal of strong vivid dreams (alas no notes for all taken or reviewed)

    Nld frag: Some sort of cool TK practice and one of the DCs asks me how I have achieved such proficiency. My reply - I have practiced this a lot in dreams.

    Mini wbtb: dreams were cool, so I had the desire to just sleep but forced myself to repeat a few mantras and reviewed the tasks.

    LD: At our old home with mom in the corridor. There are little bugs that mutate into flies and we try to hunt them. After a while I leave the place and am in an unknown location with Chinese mint candy that is the cause of all the bugs. Once I open it, a little bug comes out and runs away to mutate.

    There's a Chinese guy sitting next to another DC and I go to him to explain what happened before that.

    Memory gap and scene transformation. I'm in what's supposed to be a dream version of a slightly familiar neighborhood. I greet a number of praying people, while flying around the corner. I continue on my way in this now nicely looking neighborhood, my awareness is gradually increasing to lucidity as I continue gently flying forward and up and down. I recall a recent conversation about flying and think about that for a moment.

    Then I remember the totm about finding a pile of leaves and jumping in it and look around. There is a beatiful blossoming purple magnolia tree and lots of petals on the ground. Could that do? No, wait! It's supposed to be fall right now, but oh the tree looks great and a version with petal jumping would have been awesome too. I decide to scan the area for any proper for the season vegetation and see some leaves on the ground and a few piles of them. As I approach one of the piles, it diminishes in size, so I turn to another pile that is neatly gathered in a wooden crate.

    At this point, I begin to feel the dream thinning so rush forward and jump into the crate. I fall inside with the leaves and the dream nastily generates a number of metal pieces where I hurt myself. I find myself in a fallen semi seated position thinking about all this. This has been one of the very realistic experiences where you actually jump, fall and hurt yourself. It feels very physical, with great proximity to real life sensations and aching feedback from all body parts and your position. The pain is more towards dull, but equally realistic. In this moment, I hope that the amount of sensory information would help stabilize the dream as is often the case, but the dream comes to its natural end.


    I'm happy about totm, but feel sleepy and do a rather quick mental review.

      Ouch! Nyx, I am sorry that happened. Do you remember thinking about anything that might have created the metal pieces before jumping in? I am also really interested that the sensory information was so true to life, especially the pain. Have you had other painful experiences in past LDs? Congratulations on completing the basic, though!

      EDIT: Oh, and very punny title! Missed that the first time

      Thanks Threecat! I don't remember (or perhaps better to say that wasn't aware of my thought process at the moment of falling), but yeah, I agree that in general if something happens to be there, it is because we have thought about it consciously or unconsciously.

      I recall one other ld where there was a very strong pain sensation. It's in the beginning of this ld:

      Wow, so much near- and semi-lucidity in this series! Wow. I liked that you were able to convert that so readily into full lucidity. I have had many unfortunate experiences where I go around a NLD scenario where I am in a dream, yet I'm non-lucid. It's a little silly! And I very rarely (almost never?) jump from that to full lucidity as you did here, so great job!

      Ohh yeah that would have been awesome! It's funny, just a couple of hours ago, Wife and I were standing under a magnolia tree and I asked her, "Hey, but where are its flowers?" Oh man! Your dream-brain thinks more quickly than I do in waking life!

      Congratulations on Task of the Month! Sorry about the unfortunate surprise, but great job getting it accomplished!

      @ThreeCat - Ha ha, good eye on the pun! I missed that the first time!

      Thanks! I wish we could convert more of these situations to lds. Still, I'm hopeful that one day we will crack the case and accomplish it.

      Really? That's cool! By the way, I saw a tree blossom by mistake about a week ago. It was really worth an RC.
