    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. Innertube

      In a lucid dream there was a very fun bit where I summoned a big river rafting innertube and sat in it and floated like levitation about two feet off the ground and used it to get around the dark city streets. I just decide which way to go and floated there as if I was on a river. I had listened to Huckleberry Finn that day so the idea of leisurely floating along appealed to me. At one point I am dreamily floating at night down a lonely neighborhood street and I hear footfalls coming from behind me kind like from a jogger. I turn and it is a young female jogger. She looks worried about me. I decide not to allow that thought to flavor the dream. I decide if I ignore her and go about my business it will put her at ease. I can hear her jogging along beside me and start talking with her. We go on a short adventure together and travel under a mountain through a tunnel the whole time her jogging and me floating along leisurely in my tube. I remember pointing out to her that the graphics in the tunnel made no sense when we went down a staircase. It looked to me that I was floating both only a foot off the stairs and a about two feet below the ceiling, that would make the tunnel no more than 4 feet high, yet she looked about normal height and had a few feet above her head.
    2. Flying a Van and Summoning a Aircraft

      This started out when i found a small ferret outside a store like it was a discount rack. It was in a plastic bag. I also found two baby skunks. I figured they would be thirsty but then the ferret's bag was half full of water and had a goldfish in it. I realized it must be a dream and did an RC by trying to levitate. Sure enough I floated up and became highly lucid.
      Later on in the dream I ran into a DC of my mom and she was driving a van. I went for a ride with her. I told her that this is a dream and we could actually fly the van to where ever she was going. It worked well and I created imagery from 3rd person of the van floating off the ground and go flying. Then back in 1st person I was flying the van from inside of it. We had a scene change and were on the ground in a park. She mentioned that the van was gone. I assured her that no problem existed and just pretended the van was still there and was about to levitate us knowing the van would just reappear if I refused to acknowledge the lack of the van.
      The DC who was now my wife said she refused to go flying in an imaginary van as it was too silly. I asked her what she wanted to do and she said "summon us each a Tomcat Jet Fighter and we can race them." I decided to use basic summoning (aid from a plot element) rather than try to instantly create that much detailed imagery. She asks where they are and I say "here they come, see the com trails," knowing there would be com trails and I could then slowly develop the imagery as they landed. Sure enough I look up and there are 2 com trails but I am floored, as my brain created a vivid space scene with stars and such and a line of 3 giant satellites bigger in image than low flying blimps. "Right there behind those satellites," I say surprised. the trails get close and when in view it is some sci-fi double engine passenger jet/hover craft with fun exciting detail and apparently a whole flight crew. I decide not to fight this and just say, "this is better than Tomcats as we can land it anywhere." We go to get on and the flight crew leads us up a boarding platform and wants to ask us Covid-19 related screening questions and discusses if we still need everyone to ware masks. they ask me to take a pill that will prevent spread of Covid. I feel like forcing the dream forward but am working on o trying to control every aspect of my dreams, so I just let the scene play out. We went up on a observation deck made out of metal mesh.
      That was the end of the sequence.
