    The Dream Timer; Tribal Elixirs; Purple Portal to the Dream Sanctuary
    The Dream Timer
    I begin to see light through the back of a car window appear. I’m aware as images start to form in the slight bluish light. There appears to be some kind of machine to the left which looks like a box of some sort – possibly a microwave. The shapes then becomes two cars. I get excited as I recognize that a dream is beginning to form and calm myself slightly so as not to make the dream fade. I begin to gently move my dream body ensuring that my physical body won’t be affected. I begin to make my way out of the back window and realize that I’m good to go! I’m struck by the sheer vividness of the dream. I exit the back window of the car and begin to slide down a small metal bronze platform on the back of the car. I consider dream goals and think back to the summer competition. I don’t want to puruse the dream sanctuary due to risk of having the dream collapse; I want it to last a while. I then remember that eating/drinking something was one of my personal tasks. I anticipate a chocolate bar being in my left hand as I raise it, yet nothing appears when I do. I slide a bit further and there is a glass with what appears to be a small amount of red wine and I have some, yet there isn’t any taste. I float farther down the dream scene, down an area of what appears to be a wide alleyway with rooftops converging two stories overhead to shelter the area from the sun. It appears to be a bazaar of sorts with muted brown colors and some reds and greens that pop out. There are a few female dream characters on the fringes as I glide down the alleyway. I shout “Aware!” as I want to raise the vividness and clarity. I think back to a podcast and continue to move my eyes around the dream scene so as not to fixate in one area and collapse the dream. The alleyway converges into a large square forum area of sorts with additional colors and the presence of some foliage. I begin to hear a ticking from behind me and interpret this to be a timer of sorts counting down to the end of the dream. I attempt to counter this my counting backward from ten, progressively more slowly, in order to dilate dream time. I make my way down from ten, yet the dream goes black.
    I begin spinning within the dark scene, along with streaks of gray, motivated to hold awareness. I begin seeing a bluish scene form, but decide I don’t want a blue dream scene, and attempt to change it to green.
    Tribal Elixirs
    I emerge into a dream scene roughly 20-30 feet in the air. It’s an exilerating feeling an upbeat song begins to play within my mind, reflecting my excitement. I consider the dream goal of consuming a magic elixir. I look below and view a very vivid body of water resembling the pool in M street. Small red-tinged plants are growing out of the water which resemble plants in Serrano. I turn in the air to my right and notice a very tall narrow wooden pole, almost like a tree trunk, ascending into the air. The surface is covered within intricate white and yellow flowers, somewhat resembling orchinds. I begin to ascend the ‘totem’ in search of an elixir. At the top I find a very small thimble of sorts, but decide this won’t suffice as the elixir. I turn to my left and take in the view of a simple village consisting of huts, some with roofs, some without. There don’t appear to be any DCs at this time. To the far right appears to be a area strewn with several mats for sitting with a somewhat elaborate color schemes and adornments. I decide this must be the dwelling place of the tribal leader and the perfect place to look for the magical elixir. I approach the center of the area and a tray has several glasses and a goblet – two of the glass have liquid in them: one with wine and one with appears to be a champagne of sorts. I drink the one with the lighter liquid and it has a very bland taste – it’s not the elixir. I continue to fly in the heart of the village toward structure with simply a wide wooden base yet no roof. I female DC character is laying in this area and appears to be very life-like. I look at the DC briefly, taking in the detail, but quickly move on in order to move farther into the village. I make my way in a bit farther, but the dream begins to fade.
    I am once again in a dark void with swirls of gray. I insistent on maintaining my awareness as I swirl.
    Purple Portal to the Dream Sanctuary
    A scene rapidly appears, yet appears to be very cartoon-like. There are orcish/penguin looking figures adorned with spiked armor in an area which appears to resemble the foyer to the castle in Mario 64 mixed with the design theme of Orgrimmar. I begin to focus intently in order for the dream to become more vivid and life-like, and have a degree of success; the scene becomes slightly more realistic. The area maintains it’s orcish theme, and I float to the upper level of a walkway to the side of the main area. I turn and notice that behind a wall with large opening lays the heart of the city – a central area to the orcish stronghold which resembles the central gathering area of Orgrimmar. I fly into this area and notice two large structures. I decide not to stay in this dream scene and begin to consider finding a portal to go through. I find my way to a nearby wall and start to phase through. My vision begins to go black as my head enter the wall and I realize I may lose the dream. I re-emerge from the wall hoping that the dream will sustain – it does. I move forward a bit and notice a small half-sphere of what appears to be purple crystal, with fragmented portions containing dream scenes inside. I reflect that this would be the perfect way to find the dream sanctuary. I begin to phase into the center of one of the fragments and the scene expands into a small clearing with an earthen tunnel at the end. Inside the tunnel sits what appears to be a hut in the forest. I enter the tunnel and suddenly find myself within the hut structure. It is an earth-hewn cavernous room which extends down in a sort of tunnel-like shape. The area to the left begins to rise up to a sort of half-story area. I want a meditation area, so I imagine one around the alcove approaching on the left. I also want it to be more adorned and ‘homey’. I enter the alcove and notice a large stone tablet protruding form the well with roughly seven circular stone button in an arch. Each circular stone button is correlated with a symbol, two of which I remember as a moon and a crystal. I decide I want the sanctuary to morph into the ‘moon’ phase. I press the button and sense that the dream reacts. At this point the dream fades
    and I wake up.

    *After review of the dream journal, entry to the 'Moon Phase' of the dream sanctuary is something I'm eagerly working toward. This will be essentially a hub where I will work on Dream Yoga stages. I hope to have a mediation area, a portal area which shows locations I may venture to (using the crystal phasing technique used in the 3rd portion of this trilogy so as not to collapse the dream), as well as a precipice to ask questions directly to the dream (subconscious mind).

    I remember another dream fragment in which I'm speaking to my mom about going into enforcement. We then find ourselves in a car and there's a screen in front of the center console depicting an officer. I have my work radio attached to me.

    WBTB Success: 2
    First WILD: 10
    Eat/Drink Something: 5
    Fly: 5
    Hand Through Object: 5
    Phase Through Solid Object: 10
    Complete Old Personal Goal: 10 (Counting it as old although this is the first legit looking sanctuary)
    *Not going to count time control since I can't determine if it truly had an effect
    Non-lucid Fragment: .5
    Total: 47.5

      You are very good at lucids, wishing to regain your level

      Were the lucids chained or were there long gaps while awake in between? You gain points for chaining(Chain a Lucid Dream - 2 points (Max. 10 points), but if there were long gaps(A DEILD chain is over once you are awake long enough to write down the dream.) then you score all the dream control again for seperate lucid dreams. Also RC/stabilization gives you 1 Point/per dream/chain. Let me know!

      Impressive! How will you know when you find the elixir you're looking for?

      Maybe I should try this. What podcast were you listening to?

      I attempt to counter this my counting backward from ten, progressively more slowly, in order to dilate dream time.
      Has this worked for you in the past?

      Good question! I'm basically going off of what it feels like in the dream. I believe I just found it last night as I was anticipating it on a table, and it just felt right. The idea is that it would help me become lucid. Well, I drank it in the first LD of the night and had another right after!

      I've been getting into Andrew Holecek's work lately as I'm becoming really fascinated by dream yoga. I just finished his book "Dream Yoga" and became part of "NightClub" online which has a massive archive of dream yoga stuff!

      I actually haven't played around with it too much! That was one of my first times trying it. I do find it interesting though that it was my first attempt and it was definitely one of my longer LDs up to that point. I'm definitely going to play with it more. I tried slowing down the hands of a watch about a week prior, but it collapsed the dream right after - I believe it's because I was staring at a fixed point which caused my eyes not to move around sporadically as is typical in REM.
