    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. Lucid, Video Game on Phone

      by , 02-16-2021 at 05:59 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am walking with some woman along an industrial fence line. I have a false memory that Jason S. has told me about living here (Russia) in the past and not enjoying it because of the poverty. The woman says it must have been after 9/11. We round a corner and I find a very beautiful area outside of what appears to be a college. I go into a classroom section and someone gets me to sign up for a phone app where we can play poker against each other. I do that for a bit both winning and loosing money. The poker hands were montaged and not detailed. I then find a video game app that is kind of based off sonic but also has a RPG type set up. I actually play that through three short levels and it is fun and vivid. I am approached by a female professor who thinks I am someone else. She keeps telling me things about myself that clearly have to do with her mistaking my identity. She gets real close and touches me through my clothing provocatively. I move away from her as this seems likely to end up a distraction from the dream and anyways I do not want to play a scenario where I am tricking anyone. I see a building that must be a student union. In the atrium is a crowd of youths talking about their frisbee club. Someone wants to know if I would like to join. I ignore this as a dumb distraction and attempt to go into the building. One of them is blocking the door. I think he is just being rude. He says I can not go in there. I tell him to leave me alone and push my way past him and go inside. A security guard comes up and says they are trying to close up and why did I come in through the closed door. I have to leave. When i leave there is a teller window and they give me twenty dollars I am supposedly owed from the phone app earlier.
      The dream shifts to plot being revealed in a cut away. The guys I played with are doing some sort of criminal activity involving cutting some power. There is some sort of reward of 3% for catching me. This supposedly centers around me getting on a phone while I was in the Student Union. The cut away is happening while in another view (duel reality running at one time) I am walking down the sidewalk away from the building. At this point my alarm wakes me.

    2. Random stuff

      by , 02-12-2021 at 03:49 PM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am with Laura and we are planning to go camping. I ask her about equipment. We go to a store to find a amp or book about camp sights. A man tries to show me a book about fish. We meet with some men to get a flack jacket for her. They hand it over and she wants to examine it, but we are at a food court. She wants to get $5- back in change and I tell her I will pay it. Later I am trying to figure out horse race betting. I loose $50- right away.

    3. Random stuff

      by , 02-11-2021 at 02:27 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am walking around Morris Hill and go into the condos that over look the park. I am walking along a terrace when I realize it is scaffolding not a terrace. I am on a very dangerous and narrow section. I carefully make my way back. I go down some stairs and find stairs that seem to lead to a basement. Large sections of stairs are missing and slide like. I get down to some under ground parking area. Someone appears and tells me to go a certain way to get back out. That leads me out onto Crescent Rim.
      Later I am in my grandma's old house and have a large fish tank set up there. It is making noises like crashing ocean waves. I see the water is splashing back and forth and at risk of getting out. I look at the back of the tank and the overflow actually has two whirlpools sucking down lots of water.

    4. Cliff Fight and More

      by , 02-08-2021 at 03:29 PM (Cities in the Astral)
      Seems me and Tammi stayed for some reason at my ex's mom's house. Her mom says ex will not see us. Good to see me and respects me, but we have half hours to leave. Later we are driving and some man on foot takes off running to cut us off. We race along winding mountain road to try and get ahead of him. The car goes off a cliff and we are left hanging from side. I can see a super powered villian down on the next area. She is a hot woman in leather (not much leather. lol) Have hero battle with her and win. We end up making out after.
      Later I am at Laura's house. She is leaving. I am in a bed at her father's house. I realize there are cameras everywhere. Three of them pointing at the bed.

    5. Naked in the Park

      by , 02-07-2021 at 06:12 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      We were travelling near the river and came to a large gate across the bridge. We sort of phase across the river and are now on the Boise Green Belt. I notice I am now totally naked and many people are around. I think,, "why do people always have dreams of being naked in public, sheesh." I half heartedly cover my stuff with a hand and walk forward to a bin I know will have clothing in it. It does and I start looking through it trying to summon clothes that look cool. Someone mentions that I should not wear clothes out of a bin as they probably are infested. Hmmm, makes sense I guess. They offer me some clothes but it is an old style night gown. What ever, I put it on.

    6. Many missed opportunities to become lucid.

      by , 02-06-2021 at 07:42 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am needing to bring my recall back up, so I used a voice recorder to help me remember my dreams last night. In some parts I know it is a dream, but do not have that moment when I would seize true lucidity, even though I had intended to. So many missed chances!
      -I am in a night club and go into the bathroom but the light does not work. I find the urinal but am concerned this is sort of a seedy place and I need to be careful (thought- just a dream don't worry: did not pull full consciousness, missed chance). I go outside and it is night time. I do not see my car where I think it should be. I see a blue Challenger (mine is red) and people are near it. A couple members of Motley Crew are over there, I some how know (missed chance). I do find my car but it is not parked in a marked stall; it is in the middle of a lane (missed chance). I notice I feel very drunk! I stop and evaluate my perceptions. I do not feel normal at all! (missed chance) I wonder that I do not remember drinking and why did I get trashed if I have to drive? (missed chance). Suddenly cut away view of many cocktails on a tray and it represents earlier in the night (missed chance). I consider sleeping in my car, but do not want to be arrested. maybe i could pull it around to the back of the building. cut away and view of back side of building (missed chance). No I should not get in the car at all because I am barely functioning and having trouble focusing (missed again). I wonder if there is a restaurant i could go eat in and wait to sober up? I get out my phone but nothing makes sense and the internet is all screwy (missed). Oh hey, there is a restaurant right there and I can see a waitress through the window (was not there a moment ago= missed). Find out it is not a walk in place but a drive through (was not a moment ago= miss). Oh hey, a Mexican walk up place next door (suddenly? miss). I can not figure out the big overhead menu, I seem so messed up I can not read (miss). Maybe it is in Spanish since I am in Nampa a town 16 miles from my home of Boise (why am I at a bar in another town? miss). Maybe I could drive home drunk? It is a straight shot down the freeway. Cut away to view of route home (miss).
      In bed with red head I would never be in bed with (miss) and I am eating a giant cucumber (miss) but she wants me to put it away. I say I am going to eat it real quick and crawl to hang over side of bed. I peel it with my teeth and it is all drippy. Some how this morphs into me chewing on a very hair thick rat tail like thing. Thought- don't mess up my dream, imagine it is say her arm, seems more like a tail but pretend and move close to the girl, yes an arm, there it is (failed to pull full awareness so I could go on a lucid adventure-miss). Now we are walking through airport doors. We have been in Denmark (why across the world with no back story?(miss) For some reason we had needed to get married to avoid legal troubles but not wanted it annulled.
      -out drinking with my sister and the bar is on other side of overpass. We will need to run along the freeway under the overpass (really?-miss)When it comes my turn to go I get down and see I will be with in inches of cars if they come, and I can see headlights. Better hurry. I run but the sheet I am all wrapped up in might trip me (sheet?-miss) I get through and there is a fenced off area blocking my way back up. I worry a police might see me so I crowd into a corner and put the sheet over me like camouflage. I can tell a wild cat is rushing me and jumps onto the sheet all angry making growling noises. I make grunting noise to scare him and flip the sheet at him. I actually wake up physically making snorting noises.
      -Golf scene I need to chip onto the green out of rough, wife is near by but others are too. We have to wait our turn. As my turn is coming I am lost try to find my club. I have been holding a clownishly large driver, then I find one but the head is off the shaft. I want any chipper at this point but find a head like a meat tenderizing mallet (miss). During this time others have moved ahead of me. One person on their swing through out a weird giant hot wheels track ahead of them and then threw their ball that way.(final miss)
      On the bright side a couple lucid moments in there and not bad recall

    7. Work on Recall! I Mean It!

      by , 02-03-2021 at 05:17 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Long fun adventure. I guess. Woke up part way through and thought I should grab the voice recorder, but decided "no, this stuff is so vivid, I will remember it." Damn it. This is all I got to keep. Playing in the canal on Rose Hill with DC mom and John. The bottom is all soft and spongy. DC of Dom dog is getting tired and swims to me. She needs help staying above water. Blurry stuff. We are at the mall. Ex from 15 years ago is coming up to us. She has a black eye. God I don't want her in my dream. She probably hit herself in the face and is going to make people think I did it. What is the theme I am sensing. We had a kid. No suppress that. Not going to have that stupid theme in my dream. Blurry stuff. Lots of adventure. Well hell! While I love a good long lucid adventure, if I do not build my recall back up it seems like a night out drinking where you half black out. Fun at the time, but you do not get to keep the memories.

    8. Hero

      by , 02-02-2021 at 05:38 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I wanted to become a hero. Went into a phone booth and came out costumed Spider Man with eight large spider legs coming out of my torso.

    9. Lock Pick

      by , 01-30-2021 at 04:56 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Me and Todd were screwing around flying up to the top of walls and running along the top. It was night and the area was sort of like an abandoned warehouse. I decide this should be some sort of underground adventure like Dungeons and Dragons. We find a stair well and go down. It shortly has a gate made of wire mesh and a strong lock. Todd examines the lock and I can see a close up of it despite not being by the lock. he suggests I just use dream powers and say rip it off the wall or phase us through it. I decide that would not be as fun as figuring out what to do. He says he has an idea. We go outside and he takes me around a corner and there is a gas station. He takes me inside and tells the owner he wants to buy one of those lock picking tools you see on TV. We get that and go back outside but never make it back to the gate. i get distracted by some people and end up flying around and land dramatically on a stretch of dirt road by a impoverished area of housing. All of this is definitely happening at night. that is a consistent theme through out.

    10. Jumped Completely out of Bed

      by , 01-27-2021 at 06:16 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I was having a cool vivid dream when I came upon a snake. I was outside and walking with an old friend. We went down some stairs when I huge rattle snake came out of no where. I was fascinated with how realistic it looked. The head was almost as big as my hand. I noticed even small scales could be seen on its head (much of the body was blurred out, but the head!) I tried to back up and not go near the snake. It came at me and I decided to jump over it. The dream got weird and I knew the snake was right up against me. In slow motion I flipped over it and it was right on me. Was it going to bite? Stop thinking about that...
      Ouch! What the hell?! I am on my knees in the dark, my calf hurts and I am on the ground. For some reason when I leaped in the dream my actual body tried to leap and I jumped out of bed, banging my calf and slamming down on my knees. Not cool!

    11. Creepy Men and Fear for my Wife.

      by , 01-09-2021 at 05:01 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      Me and my wife are walking along a dirt drive and near our house. There is a small shack that should be abandoned but men are in there using drugs. My wife starts yelling angry things at them. I am upset telling her not to. Two men come out and I apologize for her hostility, telling them we live in the house there and don't mean them trouble. They are lustily examining my wife's chest. They mention "oh, so she is going to be sleeping in that house?" I am afraid and angry now. I am trained in fighting, but maybe they will gang up on us or have weapons. I become semi lucid and force the dream to move away from this uncomfortable setting.

    12. False Awakening Fail

      by , 12-30-2020 at 04:51 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I was involved with a random lucid when I wondered if I was over sleeping. I woke up (FA) and checked the time. I suspected a possible FA and decided to examine things. I walked into the front room thinking I will see if anything is odd. I thought everything looked normal (No. It was washed out and the color was towards a grey spectrum. I get into the front and some stranger is looking at my fish. They commented that they fed them. This made me mad. I totally forgot about the chance of an FA. I focused on who this guy could be and so on. Opportunity missed.

    13. Bubble shifting

      by , 12-13-2020 at 06:29 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I became lucid at some point in the night just because things got confusing so I RCd by rising up into the air like Magneto. Sure enough. Later there was a phase where me and DG are laying back in a weird bubble energy. It was like floating in shifting beads. Slight variations in frequency would shift the stuff to warm fluff like clouds. It was not an experience I can put in words and was some sort of training on subjects too foreign for me to understand on the physical world. We later walked for some time while she told me things. It was a decent amount of talking and made sense. Darn if in waking life the contents of the talk are not translatable, so come across blank.

    14. Can't get above the ledge.

      by , 12-12-2020 at 04:49 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      In a lucid I am flying fast through narrow streets at night. Ahead I see the Idaho capitol building. I go Spider Man and shoot an energy line out and reel myself in super fast to the building. I can not get above the fancy stone work ledge. I stop and try to fix what ever is wrong in my thinking/expectations. I am doing everything right but can not move higher up the building. I decide to physically climb the stone work. It teeters and threatens to collapse on me. some form of hidden barrier?

    15. I Did What? Astral

      by , 12-12-2020 at 04:40 AM (Cities in the Astral)
      I am in a confusing dream and my friend is asleep on the floor which seems wrong. I sense I have somehow ended up in some one else's house. I wander around and my friend wakes up and agrees we should not be here and could get in trouble. There is a woman there. and I talk to her. No of this makes sense so I decide it must be a dream. I RC by attempting TK, which works. Lucid now. I go outside to explore and he comes with me. We fly along a dark street in the rain. he says he is hungry, and I tell him to just visualize food. Up ahead is a burger restaurant. We go in (first door is locked) and he wants to order. I am suddenly thinking this feels like I have gone astral and am in one of the cities. I worry that if he orders and they serve him actual astral food he will be expected to pay with some form of actual astral wealth. I assume he has none as I certainly never have any form of currency, in fact it being made clear in the past that i do not have clothing (I just imagine I do.) I do not want to get people angry, so decide to find out if these people are real and if this is indeed a real place not just inside my head. I sit down calmly and call out into the ether asking for someone to explain where I have found myself and if there are any rules I need to know about.
      Before long someone real (entity) does approach and asks me to follow them. They take me out of the building through the back. Some other entities are out there. I can hear them talking/ thinking to each other. One is saying they are confused as to did I honestly just peacefully turn myself in? What? Am I wanted here, or something? I certainly have screwed up and run amuck in many more than one area of the astral. Wow, but if I want to be welcome in these places i must face what ever local law enforcement wants to deal with me and hopefully move forward with fixing my disturbing past. They bring me to a building and say my powers will be dampened in there while I am interviewed (like the prison I was sent to in the large every time I showed up for months.) It is ok, I know in a worse case I can force my consciousness back to the physical realm.
      Inside the building is a woman who interrogates me. I am accused of treachery. I supposedly acted disloyally in some setting that harmed the interests of this group. Images of space ships are projected as if that should remind me of the crime. I explain to her that I do not remember anything about the situation if it happened. I explain that I am a dreamer and am rarely in the astral. that when I do make it there my cognitive function is impaired much like being drunk, so sometimes I screw everything up. I am unaware if I have an existence there when my life is taking place on Earth, but that blaming me (this awareness) for things some avatar of me does when "I" am not there would be confusing to me. I am at a huge disadvantage in dealing with there legal system.
      She seems pretty pissed off and not impressed with my excuses. I panic and decide to get the hell out of the dampening field incase i need to protect myself. I force my way out the door. I make a run for it and take off flying. She chases/follows me and amazingly can match my every maneuver (uncommon in most cities.) I can not get away and decide to force myself back into my body.
