    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. 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?

    2. 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.

    3. 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?

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. 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.

    10. Weird

      by , 04-19-2017 at 04:19 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      04-18-17 Sorry team mates. My dreams have been off the wall weird other world stuff. It is beyond my understanding or ability to translate into a proper dream journal entry. On day three I had at least 5 distinct vivid bizarre and confusing epic dreams, but at only one point could I swear it was traditionally lucid. Day 4 I had at least 7 dreams which were pretty normal aboutr something I had been doing in real life. The most lucid I got was simply realizing I was stuck in a dream loop and telling my mind to stop [email protected]$king around and let me sleep.

      The lucid part of day 3 was cool, because the dream control was new and interesting. IRL I had seen a show about oceans and how this weird creature could shoot out this branching tongue like thing almost instantly to catch things. I was able to create the same effect but instead like a Spiderman web shooter. I was able to shoot it out and grab hold of a very large object (cabinet/fridge?) and then fling the object out of my way. I guess that is unspecified power and super strength.

      Day 4's only lucid stuff was just knowing I was in a dream loop, but I did not remember I was in a contest, so I did nothing interesting; Ijust calmed my mind into a better state for sleeping.

    11. Time Control

      by , 04-16-2017 at 10:47 PM (Cities in the Astral)
      04-15-17 DILD My vivid dreams are getting so weird that I can no longer translate much of what is going on into stories that make sense. In this dream many things happened that involved shifting between places and states of existence. My recall has been very very poor on these dreams. I can not put words to them, so I also have to figure out how to recall such things. How do I store them as memory if placing words to them is difficult. One part that I can understand is after my DG (? presumably? a entity for sure) did some kind of adjustment to my head and gave me instant understanding revolving around sequence/time manipulation. I had to focus on adjusting some energy that seemed most like adjusting the focus on a pair of head mounted binoculars. I could focus on tuning this ?thing? and cause the dream to fast forward, rewind or pause. WOW! I am glad I understood at least some of what I was doing for a good part of my night. As far as points for the competition, I honestly can not say. In know way was completing tasks on my mind. I did time control and teleportation for sure.

    12. Nice Little Kiss.

      by , 02-15-2017 at 03:43 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I had a false awakening in which a couple women were in the next room and my bed was in full view. I get up and go in to see them. It is my D.G. and the other person is no longer there. I have fairly deep feelings for this entity and she is far more understanding than either of my prior guides. She wants me to come with her. We go into the next room and she has a bath running. She is now nude and in fairly high definition. She is not acting provocative; she is just checking the water. I know that my biggest short coming in my dreaming is getting distracted by sexual things. I think she is seeing if I can control myself. I decide that trying to touch her would be the wrong thing, and I know she wants to help me. I get into the bath. She is still standing. She is so beautiful. I want to tell her how I am feeling, but worry anything I say will seem sexual. I timidly say what seems safe, " You look very cute." She seems pleased and amused by my choice of words. She smiles and leans over me bringing her face very close. We share a tiny sweet very brief close mouthed kiss. She sweetly says, "I will see you tomorrow morning." A second after this my alarm goes off.

    13. Hypnogic Noise

      by , 02-12-2017 at 09:01 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I had a lucid fade and was in a state with no dream and partial (10%) bodily awareness. I started hearing music by the Beastie Boys. It was recreated perfectly! The guitar was so cool and real sounding. The door bell rang. I have been waiting for a package. I decided I had better wake up and get the door. There was no one there. The hypnogogic noise (door bell) was so realistic I honestly believed someone had rang it.

    14. Jumping a Car

      by , 02-12-2017 at 08:57 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I was lucid for a couple hours. I drifted in hypnogogic stuff between dreams, and even woke lightly a few times. Much of the theme was hanging out with my DG and trying to get close to her physically. Any time I was a bit to 'friendly' the dream would cut short and I would spend a few minutes with no dream. The very best part was near the end. I raced around in my sports car for awhile tearing around corners on a mountain road and such. At some point I decided that I could make the car do Dukes of Hazard jumps over other cars with no ramps. I had a great time racing around and doing awesome sports jumps.

    15. Video Games

      by , 01-31-2017 at 10:19 PM (Cities in the Astral)
      The last two nights of the competition I became aware of my mind playing video games. I did not have a dream body, but was watching the screen from a video game I had been playing IRL. I was able to control what happened just like I was playing the game. Very fun.
