    5-10-13 Dream Journal Basic TOTM I and II and Advanced TOTM I

    Technique: Total sleep time = 8 hours. I was woken up unusually by my Dad coming and asking me if I wanted to play golf. I went back to sleep for a ten minute snooze before waking up to play and had an amazing lucid! I seem to have most of my lucids late in the morning, especially when I am snoozing before I actually get up.

    Dream One: Humpty Dumpty

    I am in a car driving down town. I remember my Dad had just come over to ask me to golf. How did I get into the car already?

    I start to think maybe this could be a dream but I’m not sure. I look around... everything is so realistic and I just can't tell if I am dreaming or not. (I need to remember to RC in these situations!)

    I decide that this MUST be a dream because in real life it wouldn't be so difficult for me to tell if I was awake or not. I accept that I am dreaming.

    OH NO I think, this is just going to be another short FA so I will probably just wake up in another minute, not really enough time to do anything…

    NOOO I WILL NOT WAKE UP! I remembered my technique to engage my senses in the dream to stabilize. I focused everything on the dream, I tried to deny that there was any reality outside of what I was experiencing. I was not afraid of waking up because there was nothing to wake up to, what I am experiencing is RL now. It worked!

    The dream stabilized, it became so vivid!

    I stop the car and get out in the middle of the road. I was going to yell at someone to see if they were real or not but was afraid I would look stupid (For some reason I am afraid of my DC's judging me. Like they will see me doing something silly and think I am acting foolishly. I need to get over this). Oh well! This is a dream!

    I remember I wanted to do the TOTM!!! And I am finally having a stable enough lucid to try them!

    I remember the one about telling a DC that this is a dream.

    I raise my arms and stop a car, it is a man on his way to work in a suit. I yell at him:

    "Your in my dream, this isn’t real!"

    He looks at me like I’ve lost my mind.

    Oh well... did the task don’t really care about his response.

    A man walking across the road grabs my attention. I decide to follow him to keep the plot moving while I am trying to remember the other tasks... I cant remember the other tasks…

    He goes into a breakfast dinner. There are some other people in there. I still couldn’t remember the other tasks. This is such a good lucid I could have done an advanced task!

    I remember something like I wanted to turn a DC into Humpty Dumbty? And have an adventure with him, was that a TOTM?

    Oh yeah! I have to lay an egg! I remember I was going to lay an egg, and then pretend it was Humpty Dumpty and go on an adventure with him!

    I reach around me and act like I am wiping my butt and pull out an egg!

    I am now holding in my hand an egg I just pulled out of my butt... everyone in the store is looking at me, did you just pull an egg out of your butt?

    I decide the egg isn't good enough to turn into Humpty, I look at the DC I followed into the restaurant and yell:

    "Bam! you are Humpty Dumpty! ... Nothing changes... BAM!!! You are Humpty Dumbty!"

    Oh well not working…

    I decide that the egg is going to have to suffice for my Humpty Dumpty and because I am getting board because my dream control isn't working I am going to keep our adventure nice and short.

    I hold Humpty up and throw him at the DC who refused to change. It cracks on his face and he falls to the ground wiping egg off of his face.

    I decide that is adventure enough. Yay TOTM DONE!!!

    Moving on

    As I was leaving the dinner I did a restabilize attempt because I wasn’t sure what would happen when I left the building. When I refocused my senses on the dream again I started to have one of those moments when everything because SUPPER HYPER FOCUSED and you spend a bunch of time looking at something that seems amazing in the dream but is just stupid in real life. The grout in the tile started to glow orange and the whole room started to almost, glow, with vividness. I didn’t want to get stuck looking at the dinner, I was ready to move on, so I ran out

    I run through the door to get back outside,

    I want to try to get to a “real world!” like Hyu!

    I wanted to try his teleportation technique of imagining your leaving the world you are in, and going to a new one that is “real”. One of my dream goals is to have a persistent realm with recurring DC characters.

    I try to fly upwards to leave this world, nothing. I am firmly planted to the ground.

    Oh wait! His technique does not actually involve flying, you just see your conciseness rise out of your body, like an OBE, and fly away.

    So I start looking down like I am going to float upwards and see my body bellow me.

    It doesn’t work… but I do start flying upwards really fast!

    I fly all around for a couple minutes, I am trying to gain altitude to leave this world. I still am trying to teleport.

    But I realize I can’t gain any more altitude without a point of reference, so I start expecting to see the whole world bellow me like I was in space.

    Dream transition

    I don’t know how I got down but I am back outside the dinner still trying to teleport. All I managed to do by trying to concentrate on leaving the dream is to destabilize the plot and I can tell the dream is starting to fade. I try to restabilize again but it doesn’t work.

    It kind of felt like I was about to teleport for a while, but I was unsure and my doubt was causing it to fail.

    I remember my most important dream goal! I want to meet my dream guide!

    I can feel the dream fading quickly now, I yell out:

    "DREEEEAAAAAM GUIIIDE!"

    And right when the dream is failing I here someone in a car across the parking lot shout back:

    “Yes?”

    I want to see her! It was a women! I want to see her so bad! But it is dark around her car and she is taken by the instability and the dream fades.


    I wake up and can’t believe I just had such a good lucid. I immediately right it down! That stability technique was amazing! This was going to be one of those thirty second FA experiences but I was able to turn it into a full dream!! Go me!

    Analysis: Expectations play such a strong roll in dream control for me. Next time I am trying to teleport, rather than focusing on what I am trying to leave I am going to focus on actually going where I am trying to get. Also, after reflecting on it I am sure that if I had been able to meet the "dream guide" that answered me in the parking lot it would have been just another boring DC. I need to change my expectations that when I meet my dream guide they will be smart and act like a "normal" person would!

    I am SOOOOO happy that I finally managed to have a decent lucid!
