    7-8-13 Dream Journal Basic TOTM I

    by , 07-08-2013 at 10:32 PM (526 Views)
    I had two good lucids last night. I have been using the SSILD technique and the more I practice it the more I enjoy it. I use it as I am falling asleep to help me relax and sleep well. Then in the morning the same technique sometimes leads to WILDs or really vivid non lucid dreams.

    This morning I woke up and was very relaxed. I new that if I stayed still and cycled I could probably get a lucid dream so I gave it a shot. In less than a minute I was in a dream.

    The transition was very natural and extremely easy, I did not force anything.

    I am hovering over a large city. There are many skyscrapers on the horizon, and they all have red tile roofs. I realize that the dream is unstable and I don't have a dream body yet.

    I try to stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands together and focusing on my senses.

    Immediately I am teleported to the ground. I guess getting my dream body meant that I wasn't supposed to be hovering anymore.

    I am standing on a red tile roof. It is not a skyscraper though, it is just a regular house in a neighborhood.

    The dream feels pretty stable now so I start running along the roof. When I reach the edge I matrix jump to the next house. I realize that there are no DCs at all in this city. I am completely alone.

    I keep jumping from rooftop to rooftop looking for some people. I try to remember one of the TOTM, I might be able to earn my wings if I can remember what they are.

    All of a sudden one of the houses that I am about to land on slides out of the way as if it is trying to avoid me and I land in a crowded alley full of DCs! Just then I remember that I was supposed to hug a DC and describe their reaction.

    I see a women walking to me through the crowd. She is tall and very fit. She is wearing a red Star Trek uniform and has three small horns coming out of her forehead arranged in a vertical line like the girl Naomi Wildman from Star Trek Voyager.

    She notices that I am watching her. It was kind of obvious because the crowd has started to part and flow around me because I was standing still just starring at her.

    I realize she would be a great person to hug

    Stupid dream control or powers or whatever but right when I thought to run and try to hug her she knew what I was about to try and starting shaking her head no. I looked at her smiling and started shaking my head yes...

    Then I started quickly walking towards her. The crowd was parting around me (thankfully not getting in my way and blocking my goals). She was still shaking her head no but was not making any movement to try to get away.

    As I draw near to her I slow down and approach her very cautiously. Then I slowly raise my arms out to my sides and make the last step to bring her into an embrace.

    She is no longer shaking her head no but she raises her arms up and folds them across her chest as a reach my arms around her.

    I just give her a quick friendly hug and then release her.

    She shrugs her shoulders as if to say that wasn't really that bad and then turns around and walks away.

    As I watch her go the dream fades.


    Yay Basic TOTM I Done!

    Then I had another lucid but I am running out of time so I am just going to short hand this one.

    As I wake up from my last lucid I still feel tired so again I lay still and start to cycle. Within a minute I see another city scape start to form in front of me.

    As I try to form my dream body I am teleported to a beach. I run into the water imagining that it is very cold and that I can feel it clearly. It works and the dream stabilizes.

    I start walking the beach people watching. There are a lot of sexy women out on the beach sunbathing and I am not shy about enjoying the scenery.

    I go back into the water and am playing in the waves. They get bigger and bigger until one is large enough to hit me in the face.

    In anticipation I close my eyes, big mistake. That is the first time I have ever closed my dream eyes before, a very trippy experience!

    I am now in a black void and I don't know how to get out. I am not afraid at all. I just am disappointed that I lost the dream.

    I try to visualize the beach were I just was and start cycling using the SSILD technique.

    It works and I am back on the beach. I am underwater being rolled against the sandy bottom by the big wave that just came in.

    I stand up and want to try to complete another task. But I can't remember any more of the TOTMs. I do remember a task of the year though about going to the Colosseum in Rome.

    The dream is starting to get foggy now and my recall is crap so I'm not sure what happens after that.


    Oh yeah and this.

    I have a lucid fragment, I'm not sure what dream its from.

    I am walking down a street and notice that a building is on fire. I can see the flames through the broken front window.

    I decide to try and use a dream power so I throw my hand up and imagine a swirling blizzard coming out to put the fires out.

    It works! I see like a tornado of cold wind and snow come out of my hand and slam into the building. It puts the fire out very quickly.

    I walk up after to inspect my handy work but now the building looks brand new like nothing has happened at all... Hmmm disappointing.


    I just wanted to mention that because it is the first time I have tried to use a dream power like that.

    Also, Dang I could have so easily done basic TOTM II! I was on the beach and everything! Oh well...

      Awesome lucids, and congrats on the TOTM! Quick question: when you're doing your SSILD cycles, are you also making an effort to remember lucid goals or TOTMs? Just curious, because I do that when I WBTB and I think it helps me remember them better. I say that, and I could only remember 3 of the 5 this morning lol. 3 seems to be my limit

      Anyway, I love it how that one house was all "Oh hell no, you ain't jumping on ME" Funny.

      Hi Ophelia!

      Thanks for the response! That house really cracked me up to, and I have no idea where my brain got the idea for it. The things the mind can come up with are just amazing right!

      When I am cycling I can't think of anything at all without snapping out of it. At first I would try to remember goals, or try to visualize the dream I wanted. But something about the effort always kept my mind to awake to actually enter the dream. I would get to the verge of transitioning to a dream and then ruin it by analyzing it or trying to remember something.

      I have learned that at least for me right now I have to just go with the flow. When I cycle now I try to be perfectly okay with whatever happens and wherever I end up. It is very difficult not to try to control things!

      I actually like it better because whatever happens it is always a surprise And I am always amazed that I am inside my own head, AMAZING!

      As for remembering goals in the dream it appears that one is my limit
