    Cities in the Astral

    I have been LDing sinse 1988 and have had maybe 2000ish. I am starting this dream journal on 02-19-12. Many of my dreams involve otherwordly concepts, such as dream cities that are real and have many perminent inhabitants. I have interacted with some many times, so if the entries I make seem to refer to strange things like 'the 3 women' or 'the monks' just assume they are reoccuring DCs for before this journal starts.

    1. Childhood rage

      by , 01-29-2019 at 05:51 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      This was non lucid but vivid. My sister who is now 50 was young and so was I. She maliciously tore a poster on my wall. I start yelling about this being the second time. The image of her tearing it replayed in the middle. She said something to push my buttons and I was in a rage.I felt like pushing her hard, but controlled myself sort of. I used my knuckles and rapped on the top of her skull twice, about as hard as knocking on a door. I then left. Now 2 female DCs are following me and yelling for the police. I told them all I did was knock on her head and it could not have her her much. One of them joyfully said she had been recording me admitting I did it. The dream faded. I woke up angry.
      I did have problems with my much bigger sister picking on me, but that was long, long ago. I love and respect my sister and enjoy spending time with her. Very odd that feelings from childhood came out in the dream.

    2. Replay Attempt.

      by , 01-27-2019 at 06:46 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Remember very few details, but it was an interesting lucid in that I had watched a sequence and then attempted to steer the dream to allow me to experience the scene in person. The attempt sort of failed. I did manage to create on of the DCs and get the city to kind of conform to the layout, but when I attempted to walk from one place to another I just kept walking expecting to arrive at a lake. Someone mentioned the lake was that way, but I never got there.

    3. Vampire Lucid

      by , 01-27-2019 at 06:39 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Long crazy dream where I sailed along a cliff and found a tiny tunnel. I wormed my way through the dirt tunnel and came out in a tomb like church. I eventually end up across the street in a two story house. Lots of interaction with DCs until I figure out they are the thralls of a vampire. I was lucid by this point and created two big guns and had to defend myself. Later the actual vampire came in. A female wrapped her arms around him and told me to fire. This involved shooting through her. Some how I knew that her blood blasting into his body had killed him because of her self sacrifice. The weirdest part comes where I am in the front room but had to just watch through the eyes of the person I had been playing. A woman came in and he did not know if she was part of the bad guys. She approaches as I watch through his eyes. He is terrified and pointing both guns at her begging her to not make him shoot her. She says something soothing and gently pushes the guns aside and hugs him. He breaks down in tears.

    4. Mercedes.

      by , 01-27-2019 at 06:24 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I was talking with a female DC when she became a girlfriend from 30 years ago. She sat on my lap facing me and was topless. I was lucid by this point and did not touch her sexually. I was more interested in the warm feeling of friendship and closeness. She kept giving me signs of affection like tiny kisses on the cheek.

    5. Strange lucid games.

      by , 01-27-2019 at 06:17 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I went through many weird sections of some kind of adventure/puzzle game with a DC of a friend. In one part I was out on the side of a high rise standing on a ledge. We used TK to drop things off. I TK'd a DC off the edge and they fell and landed fine at the bottom. Inside the building one scene involved a women who was deathly ill. She was bloated to the point of popping. I decided we should wrap her limbs in in plastic wrap but that just caused blood to come out of tears in her torso.

    6. Fantastic Hawaiian Afternoon.

      by , 01-27-2019 at 06:10 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      01/26/19 This dream went on and on. It was all in a tropical setting that I knew was Hawaii. I explored a city up and down hill sides, found a balcony and looked out to the sea over tree tops. I road around part of the coast in a bus. It went over a bridge and I looked down into a place where a bay met the sea. I could see moving water of different densities and also see the land and coral on the bottom. Can not describe how real and fantastic this visual was. I appeared in a boat down on that water. The dream had so many portions and I did not write anything down, so can put little down here.

    7. Seeking Fight.

      by , 11-07-2018 at 04:28 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      A sequence with a party and it is supposed to be in my house thrown by someone who has no right to do so. The image is a man from my younger days. I am sort of lucid and decide a fancy kung-fu battle would be fun. I challenge him and he disappears into the crowd. I try to morph the features of a stranger to match the guy I want to fight with, however they change into my sons features. I wonder if there is some meaning behind this?

    8. Giant Fish

      by , 11-07-2018 at 04:23 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I see into a lake and a shape raise from the depths. It is a giant cat fish. I look from a new angle and am amazed. Next I see a giant fish that is like a groumi. Now the view shifts to a man swimming out in the lake and a colossal fish like a grouper comes up from underneath to eat him. It breaks the surface and the man balances on one side of of its open mouth. When the fish is as far out of the water as it can get the man dives off into the lake. This happens one more time. The fish goes after another person and it catches a lady in its mouth but she falls out onto the shore. I go and examine her and she has huge cuts. I decide to catch the fish and then wake up.

    9. 6 DEILD with False Awakening for each.

      by , 11-01-2018 at 04:09 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      10/30/18 Very strange. Each time I DEILD I would find myself in bed waking up. I would figure out that it was fake due to something such as being on the wrong type of bed (waterbed) or being able to TK things, or being in the wrong house. Each time someone in my family was in the room. I would get up and marvel at the life like nature of the dreams. I can recall that the imagery was dream like, but inside the dream I had trouble finding details that were not perfectly rendered, including tactile presence like proper texture. I had a few minutes of exploring between each and had a beautiful time flying through mystical clouds. Why did each of the 6 dreams start as a false awakening?

    10. Mystic Coulds

      by , 02-11-2018 at 05:01 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      02-10-18 Recall is coming up a bit, but I still should start working with write or recording key words. This was a WILD chained by 2 DEILDs and it shows how time distortion can take place. When I stopped I told my wife I had some amazing lucids for the last hour. She corrected me and said I was only out for about 25 minutes. The sweetest high point was I levitated laying on my back like in a recliner and lifted up past the power lines and into clouds. I then cruised forward at a pace but kind of casual and just enjoyed floating through the wisps of cloud which were amazing to look at. I also had a portion where I seemed to be recovering memories from early childhood. I felt as though the block I was exploring was representative of some place I had know as a young kid. In one part I floated up to the top of a church and climbed in to an attic area. I then looked down into the church where someone was playing an organ. In another part I saw two DCs running as if in play and a park was on one side of the road. Then a cousin of mine called me over to a picnic. We walked to a house and while there I could hear helicopters and one landed in the back yard. Everyone wanted to leave because they were afraid. Then we were in a car and I was the driver. There were way to many people in the car and my shows were gone. I dropped them off in a parking lot and summoned shoes. I had a whole pile and examine them, liking the 3rd pair and keeping those. I lost those latter though. In the very first part I went around and messed with DCs by using TK to make them do silly stuff like spill their drink on there head.
      The recall needs much work to get me back to functional LDing at my normal level. I am just getting tired of knowing I had two or three amazing LDs and by noon not being able to recall anything much. This was a good first step. I am writing this 10 hours after the WILD and got lots of it, but the sequence is mixed and I know sections just disappeared. This was maybe me 5th day of trying to get recall back, but only using auto suggestion and focus. I need to go old school and DJ for awhile, plus use a key word recall with a voice recorder.

    11. Energy Entities.

      by , 02-04-2018 at 10:19 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      02-03-18 I seriously need to work on recall. I should keep a voice recorder again and journal. Last night I had wonderful deep meaningful lucids in about 4 sessions spanning perhaps a half hour or more. During the dreams I was sure I would remember the details. I clearly remember having a very long awesome LD broke by 3 partial awakenings. Guess what? I remember almost no details. Use it or loose it! That is the deal with recall. I find it so funny that I have so damn many LDs and I am to freaking lazy to work on my recall. I may ask what good are all those LDs if I do not record or remember them, however I know I enjoy the hell out of my nights sleeping, I just don't retain the memories. If I put effort into it for a few weeks it would fix the problem. End of rant. The high point of what I do remember is talking with a small group of astral beings and two of them were actually columns of colored fire. It did not seem odd at all to me at the time that a couple of my companions were columns of energy/fire. I do remember they were not the same color as each other. What a shame to have forgot such deep weird stuff.

    12. Crow and the Pigeon-Vulture

      by , 09-05-2017 at 05:52 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      09-04-17 Reality checked by trying to move objects with my mind. Became lucid when I could in fact do it. Went on an adventure. At some point while flying through tree branches a large crow lands on my fore arm. I ask it if it is my Father. I sense the spirit of my departed father in the crow. That was his totem in real life. That is what he intended to inhabit until his wife passes, so they can be the same age next time. It communicates with me on some telepathic level. Another bird has landed on my other arm. It looks unlike any real bird. It looks much like a small vulture, but has the iridescent coloring and feathers of a pigeon. I sense I know this being, but can not tell from where/when.

    13. 3 LDs

      by , 04-30-2017 at 05:50 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Over the last half of the contest I have had a terrible dry spell compared to normal.

      I succeeded in two WILDs but could not develop them far enough to have story lines. In the first one I simply flew through a void of pastel colors. In the second I summoned images in a shimmering background and changed things such as placing a unicorn horn on a dog's head. I also had a DILD but it did not go far. I had lost a tooth. I was surprised and reached up to check and now was missing many teeth. How did this happen? Inner voice "head butted in Jiu-jitsu." That does not make sense, we are all on the same team, no one would do that. I wonder if this is a dream. Stop and RC. Lets look for distortions in the visual field. I look around and have an image of looking in my mouth and seeing the busted teeth. RC complete! I clearly can not actually look inside my own mouth without a mirror. Ok, stop and stabilize. I look in a mirror and grow my teeth back. I freaking wake up, so it was not successful as a stabilization method. Not really doing enough to promote lucidity and recall.

    14. Storm

      by , 04-25-2017 at 05:28 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am realizing that with recall, it is sort of 'use it or loose it.' I am listening to my taped words from the morning I had this one, and only now am recalling the dream. I do not journal my many lucids most the time, and honestly I need to. How many great adventures will I never remember because I did not journal them? This lucid was very long, very detailed and had interactions with DCs and on awakening I could only remember wisps. Well, here it goes, straight from the voice recording.

      I had been standing in a crowd when someone approached me and asked if I was dating a women he indicated in the crowd. I vaguely recognized the person indicated and replied that I was not dating that women. He said that someone had lied to him. Around this point I become lucid spontaneously. I am soon hanging out with 3 entities. There are two girls and a man. I think it was my dream guide and two others, but in this case I am not sure like I am sometimes. She often has different faces, but often sticks to a certain look. I assumed it was her. ---recall gap--- I am at the train depot and decide to have fun with physical powers. I run with super speed and turn the ground slick and do power slides across the surface like an ice rink, and other things including dancing and martial arts rolls. The male comes up to me and says we are going to take the ladies some where, and it is time to go. We go to a house where there is a man working on something mechanical. A small crowd is pushing in around him to watch. I am part of the crowd suddenly and try to back away as it is uncomfortably crowded. I see that there is oil all over my boots, so I look around for a rag. --- recall gap--- All four of us go into a building through the back door. We are in what appears to be a shop. We here a car pull up behind the building and we decide we should sneak out the front door. We quietly leave the building ---recall gap--- We are now going into a field where there is a food truck and small crowd. A man tells me about something that just happened to a guy in the crowd. ---recall gap--- I am alone now and wandering around when I come upon my old grade school. I go inside and there is an assembly. I am suddenly lay down on a table watching the assembly. I am shushed by my 4th grade teacher. She comes up and asks me questions about things like, "what ever happened to so and so." I recognize the person she is talking about, but do not have answers for her questions.
      I leave the grade school and finally remember the Dream Views competition. I take off flying. I start ascending and descending while I flew trying to decide what would make it super flight. I summoned sky scrapers, and took of like superman and went from the bottom to the top of a tall building in a fraction of a second. I landed on the top of the building and looked around. It looks like Las Vegas. I decide to control the weather and gather all the clouds in front of me forming a massive storm. I played with making it rain and then pour rain and finally froze the rain so it was now a terrible sleet storm. ---recall gap--- I walk into a building and it is a large store with fish tanks. I know suddenly that this is my father's lab, but he has died and his wife is trying to run the place. I hear an overhead voice that sounds recorded and it is saying sorry for anyone who lost their such and such organism and they will be replacing them. I feel a little discomfort with the subject of dad's wife and decide to leave. I go walking through the building and look at random odd things displayed there. By the exit is a largish idol in kind of a Polynesian style. I had a weird idea and summoned 3 more idols. I wanted to make them animated and under my control. I was able at first to get them talking. I floated them around (mass TK) and imagined them becoming animated and singing. It worked. They all came to life like a Disney movie and as I floated them in front of me they break out in song. It was so cool and very Disney.
      I left through that exit and am outside the building ---recall gap--- I am walking in a vivid nature scene of flowering meadow. I come to a house with a nice deck which I go out on and see a road and a fenced with a park beyond it. There are now people around me and we are talking. My car keys make noise and someone notices and says I must have a Mazda such and such. I said no I have a Dodge Challenger, and that I though it was a very masculine sexy car. Someone starts talking about how time passes there. He said people will come months apart and expect things to have changed. However, things were always the same and no time had passed. He goes on that that heard of deer (now there is one out there) is sometime here sometimes there (points) but it is more or less always the same.
      Someone comes walking up to me. It is the girl from before (DG?) and she wraps her self around me and sensually licks my face (one big long lick, from lips to eye brows) I do think the dream went on but that is last thing I recall.

    15. Day 5 ; Low end WILD

      by , 04-22-2017 at 05:14 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      TYried a WILD somewhere near morning. Fairly quickly got to a relaxed state and let parts of my bodily awareness fade. Nice and numb, about 10% of normal conscious awareness hiding in the background. Got to that stae by allowing bodily inputs to fade and not thinking, but paying attention to what ever inputs would still be there. Sleep, dream state: I am in a black void. Not like that was part of a story, or mystical; simply no color, depth, or form existed aside from the object in front of me. I feel as though I am looking down at about a 30 degree slant and someone is kneeling in front of me. The rendering is poor, using simple animation and only giving color to the lines in that animation. There was a subtle static in the visual field that made an electric neon (but subtle) haze around the person. I have no body. I picture him as a dog. He transforms in a dog. I feel an interesting pulse of energy, but as I have no body, I feel the pulse move as a wave through open space. I think that is curious. I know it is a dream as I never lost consciousness. I have not felt this exact sensation tied to a dream control task like changing the guy to a dog. Picture how the woman in I Dream of Genie does the magic by a swift head motion; now picture if you could see the magic (like seeing genies aura or something) come off her each time she bobbed her head. So the wave started somewhere in my center although I am disembodied and traveled out in response to my wish. I can feel the energy as if I have sensory organs experiencing what ever that part of the "space" has happen to it. See, this kind of dream experience is hard enough for me to find words for, that is why I can not journal a lot of my recent dreams. I play with this experience/power. I make different people and dogs flash back and forth, the image changing as I feel the wave of energy hit that part of the visual field. Now I experience a spinning sensation while still having the image in front of me. After perhaps 12 times of changing the graphics back and forth, I experience having legs and the sensation of gravity. I feel the softness of my bed. I loose the dream and come back to about 50% bodily awareness.
