    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. TOTM Ring of Power

      by , 11-28-2021 at 12:17 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I was in a nice lucid and had a female companion DC which was of one of my college girlfriends. We ran around exploring on a date. In one scene we had gone through the lobby of a fancy restaurant and sampled types of food, then we exited through a side door. It led us to a balcony on the side of a giant pyramid but everything was upside down. It looked similar to the Escher drawing of stairs that defy logic. I stared at this for a while but was unsure what to do, just being amazed. We went back inside instead.
      Eventually lots of exploring had been done and a fun date had been had. I told the DC that the date has been good and that my dream could end soon so perhaps we should fool around. She starts to please me orally and it causes me to wake. I swiftly DEILD and am back in the dream. I worry that sex will destabilize the dream and the girl is still there just as things were when I woke. I decide to try and do some sort of task. The only TOTM I had focused intent on enough to recall was the ring of power one. I explained it to her. I summoned a big solid box and wanted it to be a furnace for forging the ring. I focused on igniting an inferno in the box. Various visuals suggesting magic force and energy start dancing around and half ass images of flames splash across the image. I focus more and do not get a sustained furnace effect, but just more magic force/ energy visuals and splashes of fire. I decide this entire box is a sealed canister like when forging Damascus steel and that the ring has been forged inside of it from all the magic force, I put into it. I tear the box open and sure enough there is a really big and very gaudy gold ring. I pick it up and show it to her.
      I put the ring on to see what will happen. I look around and nothing has changed. I look at my hand and the ring is gone. I decide it has absorbed into me and that like Gladriel's, rings of power cannot be easily seen when worn. I wonder what power the ring could give as I basically have total mastery of the standard super powers when in a vivid lucid. Just doing something I can always do seems against the spirit of the task. Ah ha! I cannot always have sex without it disrupting the dream and even when I can it takes lots of stabilizing during the act. I decide the ring of power has given me the power to have my make out time with this girl undisturbed and without stabilizing. She goes back to pleasing me and it works! well for a few minutes it works, then the scene randomly shifts. Well, like most men it seems, my dreaming self is a bit of a pervert.
      In the new scene I am standing on top of a van. It is outside Grandma's house. I start steering it with TK and park it in her yard. The dream goes through a whole sequence where I cannot keep the van stable. It appears on the other side of the fence. I TK it back but it is now a food truck. I try to turn it back to a van and now it is sitting an a mound of garbage. I TK the mound away and now it is a mini version of the food truck. I lose interest and go do other things.
    2. Forging The Ring- Fail

      Yesterday my two kittens died. That night in a dream I was in my front yard and my step dad had moved some rocks. He found the bodies of the other 4 kittens. I looked at the bodies and one of them opens its diseased eyes. this was straight out of a horror film. In fact it was so shocking that I did not believe it. I remembered that the other four kittens had been adopted out, so this must be a dream. I decided to fly and it did not immediately work. My step father tried to tell me I was not dreaming or I would be able to fly. I pointed out that I was currently floating at least three feet of the ground, so I clearly was dreaming. I flew around and eventually thought I should try to do something useful. What was the task of the month? I remembered that I was supposed to forge a ring of power and see what it did.
      I decided that I would role play out this whole thing rather than just summon a forge and do a quicky thing imagine a ring and have done. I was still picturing the area around my house so I went into my shop. There is a wood stove in there so I lit it with my mind. I look around and come across some rings. I also find a can to melt the rings in. This seems like a good start. Perhaps these are magic rings and good material for a ring of power. I put 4 or so magic rings in the can and go to place it in the fire. I notice that smoke is coming from some place other than the fire. This led to me trying to put out a few shop fires and then I woke up suddenly. Nice vivid dream, but failed TOTM.
    3. Long Adventure with Many DEILDs Dip in River, Naked in Snow.

      by , 11-05-2021 at 06:44 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      11/04/21 This thread has me playing with DEILD of two sorts This sequence lasted for what seemed like two plus hours but likely was around one hour. Highlights include: Serious sexual scene with my wife and another lady that eventually reached climax. I checked later, not IRL, just in dream. It was very stable which is uncommon for a sex scene. A flight down the middle of my local river where I would dip in and out of the water. Walking naked outside in the snow and having it be very detailed and realist with frost and seeing my breath. A scene where I was supposed to fight an alligator at something like SeaWorld. I said I would hug their gator but not fight it. They had a big eel for me to fight but I made it a little eel. It went and hid and I pulled it out by its tail and showed everyone and then let it go. There was a scene at the university where the buildings were amazing and wonderful and the DCs acted like I was a king. One woman who was kneeling gladly preformed a quick sexual act at my merest thought and then something interesting happened. I felt the presence of a Dream Guide/ entity and she called out. "I am going to report you for this." I saw her for a moment but lost track of her. Telepathically she implied I was wasting my practice time on folly and my old perverse ways were as strong as every, and she would tell on me. I raised up into the air like Magneto and called out something like this, " I have been very sure that this was inside my own head and not in a realm. The ape body I inhabit causes this stuff to be very important to me. This is the kind of thing a male ape fantasizes about. I need time alone in my own head for such things and do not feel bad about it!" I then ignored if she was still there or not and continued my adventure.
    4. Bathroom Window.

      by , 11-05-2021 at 06:21 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      11/02/21 In a dream I was getting drunk with people from work at a private residence. My work space was there but different. I kept messing up my work. I realized it must be a dream. Suddenly I am waking up in a strange bathroom as if I passed out. I decide to go out the window a and fly about. As I go out the window it seems so real with gravity (my weight pressing into the seal and having to control not toppling forward that I doubt myself. If I am just drunk the fall will hurt. I decide to go back in. I examine things and am definitely dreaming. I go for a peaceful fly through dark streets until I come to a scene with people partying on a balcony. They offer me weed, which I do not smoke, but as it is only a dream I join them and have some. It does nothing.
