    1. Terrifying Fall

      by , 02-02-2017 at 01:59 PM (Letaali's Dream Journal)
      I was climbing a mountain with my brother and dad. We were in the northernmost part of Finland. I grab some snow and it feels like really fine sand. "This can't be sand. It should be snow." I think and the confusion causes awareness to rise. We are almost at the top of the mountain, when I fall into a crack in the snow. I'm scared to move, so I ask dad to help. He comes back, but doesn't grab my hand for some reason. I wait for him to help for what feels like minutes. He just stares at me with a sad expression.

      The huge piece of snow I'm standing on breaks off completely and I fall with it. I see a straight wall of ice and snow, like I fell from the top of a glacier. Below me I see a freezing ocean. I think about how I can survive. The water will be freezing and my many layers of clothing will make swimming difficult. There's also nowhere to go once I'm in the water. I'm still falling and my mind seeks for a way out. "Please let this be a dream." I pray, but my mind is still entangled, believing this is real. A few more seconds of falling. In my mind I'm screaming "STOP!!!" and I finally force the dream to stop. The short pause midair is followed by waking up.

      I guess I was lucid for a second there, but not gonna count that as anything.
    2. Crash Landing in another Universe

      by , 01-01-2017 at 12:31 PM (Letaali's Dream Journal)
      Happy 2017! So, I've just been focusing on getting lucid. After Caiocontieri talked about wanting space dreams on IRC, I decided to incubate some too.
      Autosuggestion worked nicely.


      Crash Landing in another Universe
      I am the commander of my own space station, just like I visualized before bed. The station is massive and capable of travelling from a universe to another.
      We are orbiting a new planet with alien life. I want to be part of the first party to land on it. I take two crew members with me to a spaceship with three seats.
      The ship looks like a bit like the one in Star Wars. The ship Luke flew when taking down the AT-AT. We get in and the ship is slowly being lifted out of the hangar.
      We are on a ramp and we see space, the planet and part of the station in front of us. The locking mechanism is malfunctioning and our ship starts sliding down the ramp.
      "Oh fuck!" I yell as I look at the part of our station we are falling towards. It's at least 1km until we hit the station and several kilometers below that is another level that we might hit.

      We hit the station and start spinning out of control as we fall towards the planet. We are still picking up speed. This is going to hurt.
      I try to calmly put on my seat belt, which is difficult thanks to the ship spinning. After I get the seat belt, all I can do is wait and hope for a miracle.
      Maybe we land in an ocean or something.

      The ship softly stops just before hitting the ground. A large red alien man with tentacles used telekinesis to stop our ship. We are in an alien city.
      The atmosphere is denser and deep blue. It's also toxic to humans. We hold our breath. A lot of humanoid aliens rush to help us.
      I try to communicate that we need air. My crewmate tries to draw this on a piece of paper in a way they could understand.
      I also tell them that we came from another universe. I take a few breaths as a test. Breathing doesn't hurt, but I still believe it's toxic.
    3. #233 - Collapsing building

      by , 04-18-2016 at 04:56 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      My dreams usually hard to recall the second night after going to sleep late, it was still a cool dream from what I can remember.

      I recall being in a warehouse building, it was quite big and there was some emergency going on. I get the impression that we (me and whatever faction I was with) were on the defense. At some point I remember grabbing an automatic rifle from a weapon rack. There was a large space rocket in the building, we hopped inside and launched it. I remember the power of the engine propelling us up, it was really intense. The building was collapsing all around us as we shot up, the ship then tilted and started navigating around the falling debris. We just managed to duck out of the building and into the open sky, and then had to pull straight up to avoid a tall wall or something. Because we were going up at too extreme of an angle, the ships engine sputtered and stop, at this point the spaceship is now a helicopter instead. The helicopter blades stop spinning and the it starts to free fall. There's massive panic, we're trying desperately to start the engine, but it's a damn helicopter, even if we do will it stop the fall?!?! Right before we hit the ground the blades spin into action, instantly the helicopter slows and then shoots off forward in a very non-helicopter-like fashion.
    4. Epic Airboat Run

      by , 07-25-2012 at 05:32 AM (Epic Dreamscape)
      ~This is what happened after a transition from the scene in my last post. (where it gets fun ^.^)

      Consciousness of the scene slowly faded in to me, and I saw that I was at a pool party with several of my friends. I went to get one of my buddies to swim with me, but he walked up to me before I even started to search, so we dove in. Once we were under the surface, the scene shifted again (but not much) to show that I was now underwater in the ocean, among many small fish in the murky water. I swam around with super speed for awhile, chasing fish and enjoying being able to breathe freely underwater, but eventually I decided to go back to the surface. The closer I got to the surface of the water, the clearer the water became, until it was simply shimmering air to my eyes. I broke out of the water, and I saw that I was now at the beach with the same person I had chosen to go swimming with, and two other guys that seemed familiar. There was also a crowd of people standing a few feet away from us, looking on as if they expected something to happen soon. It was then that a rather large airboat with only four seats drove itself up beside us, and the two guys jumped in the front seat and the passenger seat before speeding away, nearly knocking me down with the power of the airboat fan. As they sped away, a RC car controller flew out of the backseat and landed at my feet. I picked up the controller to see what it controlled, and as I turned the wheel and squeezed the throttle, I discovered that it controlled the airboat. I played with the two guys on the airboat for a few minutes, terrorizing them with high speeds and sharp turns, but eventually I brought the boat back so that I could get in too. Once in the boat, I drove off at a slow speed in the direction of the open ocean, increasing my speed as I went until I was going so fast that the boat would have flown if I hadn't kept it down. (This is where my control starts to catch up with me.) I continued to speed along until I decided that I wanted something extreme, so I simply pictured a giant tidal wave appearing, and a massive wave rose out of the ocean. It could have easily drowned a couple Sears towers. The airboat shot up the tidal wave, and when it reached the summit, it continued on, flying into the air, up, up, until gravity caught up with us and took us on the adrenaline-pumped descent.

      And that was basically the end to that dream. I drove around on the airboat for a few more minutes, but I woke up after that. By far the coolest thing about this dream was the free-fall that I went through on the way up and down on the airboat--it was like one of those rides at an amusement park that takes you up and then drops you back down, except faster, and I wasn't buckled in xD BEST FALL EVER!!

      Last thing! This dream was also really exciting for me because it's showing the increased amount of control that I'm having in Lucid dreams since learning these techniques and being on this site. I wasn't expecting much improvement in control this soon after being on this site and learning these techniques, but they've clearly already made some progress, so I'm happy ^_^
    5. Lucid Dream 226: The Land of Judgement

      Lucid Dream 226: The Land of Judgement
      Series: Tartarus of the Dream World, Episode 1
      around 8:00pm

      I woke up from my previous dream and got something to eat. I watched some t.v. for a bit and still felt tired. I decided to WILD. I performed my technique and soon SP set in.

      I started to slowly spin around in my bed and then floated around the room. I heard some muffled conversation and a few screams here and there. Finally, the dream settled in and I stood up. I noticed there was a man standing in my room. He looked familiar. I shouted, "Where the f*** have you been?" The old man turned around and I noticed it was Merlin the Wizard...my "dream guide." He spoke up and said, "You haven't needed me, but I have always been watching." I thought that was a little creepy, but replied, "So, what brings you here now?" I noticed Merlin was wearing a long brown traveling cloak, and held a large, white magical staff with a blue crystal on the end of it. His long, white and grey beard matched up perfectly with his long hair. He looked at me and said, "It is time for you to uncover the secrets of this world." I was very amused and intrigued all at the same time. I performed some quick stabilization techniques as Merlin began to chant.

      After a few moments a portal opened up and he ushered me into it. I dove head first into the portal and found my self in some sort of weird water slide. I was sliding head first through a strange purple tube. The texture was soft and very slippery. It reminded me of a frog's skin. The tube was many shades of purple and the more I observed it, the more it felt like I was inside the intestines of some strange creature. Luckily, there was nothing gross about it. It was an extremely fun water slide that twisted, turned, and had several awesome drops. Finally, i came to the end of the slide which was suspended over a massive lake. I fell around 100 feet from the end of the slide/tube and landed in the lake below.

      I plunged underwater and looked around. I could see several other DCs swimming around in the lake with me. I also noticed that the bottom of the lake could not be seen. The lake water was clear as crystal, but below me was nothing but a dark abyss. I freaked out a bit and kicked hard for the surface of the water (I have a slight fear of extremely deep water). I broke the surface and noticed everyone was swimming in a single direction. I figured I would follow. Suddenly, the person to my right was grabbed by something and drug under water. Splashing occurred all around me as demon-like beings began grabbing people and pulling them under. I sprang up out of the water like a dolphin and took flight. I flew to the shore. Several others made it to the shore and many seemed to be surprised by my flying ability. I told them all that we were lucid dreaming right now. One of them laughed and said, "Yeah...so is everyone else. You still shouldn't be able to fly down here!" You must be one of the chosen ones, eh?" I pondered the thought for a moment and then asked where we were. He replied, "We are in Tartarus of course." I looked around at the area I was in. The walls and ceiling were all made of crystal. The crystals and lake reflected a purple and blue light. The room was absolutely stunning. The DC warned me not to lust over the lake or it would draw me in. He also told me that this was, "The Lake of Judgement," and the unworthy would be dragged to its depths.

      After talking for a bit, we all walked through a large white gate. There was a group of about 30 of us and I just casually walked along with the crowd and tried to take in the environment. We made our way through many maze-like rooms. There was blood scattered all throughout the place as well as many dead bodies. After a bit, demon-like creatures began attacking. I easily fought these off with super human-lucid strength. I found a spear and began stabbing demon after demon. It appeared that most everyone in the group struggled fighting off the demons. Many died and were torn to shreds. After battling off the demons, I noticed the DC from before was still alive, but breathing heavily. He seemed amazed that I was able to use so much lucid power. I asked him for his name and he told me it was "Ash." We all began sliding through the same type tubes as before.

      This time, I landed in a large forest. Many of the trees had sinister faces and branches that looked like claws. I took off running through the forest and the rest of the survivors followed suit. Many were snatched by the evil trees and ripped to shreds. Whenever I came close to one of the evil trees, I placed my hands on it, focused, and set it ablaze. Once I made it to the end of the forest, there was a huge field. The sky was incredibly dark and I could see the silhouette of an enormous castle in the distance. Me, Asher, a hot female in ninja-like gear, and a native american man were the only four people left alive. The native american guy was actually a teenage version of Nightwolf from the video game series, Mortal Kombat. The female ninja was the teenage version of Jade from Mortal Kombat. Nightwolf said, "We have finally reached the land of judgement." I asked them who's bad ass castle that was and they told me it was the kingdom of Thanatos and the god resided in the castle.

      I was pumped and wanted to go battle Thanatos. I told them to catch up later and I took flight toward the castle. Once I got about halfway there, I noticed something flying at me from the distance. it was a dark silhouette and I knew it was Thanatos. Music started playing int he background. I could barely hear it at first, but as Thanatos approached, it got louder. It sounded like battle music. I decided to try and summon my keyblade. After a couple of attempts, I managed to summon a solid black sword. I decided that it must be my Zanpakutou (weapon/sword from the anime bleach). It was all black like Ichigo's sword, but the blade was much thicker and looked more like a claymore.

      I started to get excited as Thanatos approached. His face seemed human, but it was solid white. He was holding two large scythes, one in each hand. Each scythe had multiple black blades and at first it appeared as if he was actually holding about 20 of them. I swung my sword and he blocked it with one of his multi-bladed scythes. I landed on the ground and held my arm into the air. I shouted some nonsense that I can no longer remember and a stream of fire blasted from my hand. The dream became unstable at this point. I continued to battle Thanatos even though the dream was blurry, but I couldn't manage to keep the dream going. I stopped and tried to stabilize, but it was too late.

      I shall definitely be battling him again. This dream was one of my favorites so far. It felt like I was in some sort of bad ass anime-type story/plot.

      Lucid Dream 198: Who's Driving?
      Series: Friends, Episode 7
      around 1:00pm

      Category - Exploration

      I am partying at some random person's apartment. Apparently, a couple girls had invited us there. Me and Mike are playing pong against these two cocky bastards. They kept talking about how good they were and how they hadn't lost all night. Me and Mike asked them if they wanted to put some cash on the game. We agreed to play for 20$ a cup. We straight up spanked their ass 6-0 and one of them got pissed off and flipped the table. Our remaining cups spilled into the floor, as well as the bottom of my jeans and shoes. I got pissed and called the guy a bitch. He started talking trash saying that this is his apartment and he can do whatever he wants. I said, "Yeah, but when you are knocking sh*t over and spilling it on my shoes, we have a f***ing problem. He reached out like he was about to touch me and I calmly said, "You better not f***ing touch me." He took a step forward and said, "What are you going to do about?" I knew exactly what he was going to do. It was almost like slow motion. He slowly stepped toward me with his chest pooched out. As soon as he made contact, I threw a quick uppercut with my right and caught his chin. It wasn't powerful enough to knock him down, but it stunned him. I then came across with a left hook as he was stumbling backwards and laid him completely out.

      The guys partner takes a couple quick steps toward me and Mike layed him out before he even had time to react. Suddenly, six or more other guys came at me and Mike. We fought them off for a moment. Realizing we were in trouble against this many people, I shoved through some innocent bystanders and made a path to the front door. Mike followed, as we fought off the crowd. The doorway slowed them up a bit and we had separation. I don't run from fights, but I'm not stupid. 2 on 6+ is not going to be good. We hauled ass toward the parking lot.

      The next thing I remember, we are in a car riding down the road. Mike is in the passenger seat, I am behind the driver seat, and Chad B was now randomly with us as well. He is sitting in the back seat to my right. Mike was talking about the NCAA tourney and I suddenly noticed that there was no driver. The car was going down the road, but there wasn't anyone driving. Having had several of these dreams before, I immediately became lucid.

      We were coming up on a turn and I sat calmly and half wondered if the car would crash or make the turn. As expected, the car turned perfectly and continued along the road. I looked at Mike, who was still talking about who he picked in his bracket and said, "We are dreaming right now!" He looked confused and didn't believe me. I asked him who was driving the car. He casually replied, "No one." I laughed and said, "How is the car driving perfectly down the road without a driver?" He looked at me confused and said, "Because of the spark plugs." I looked over at Chad and he agreed with me. I told them to watch and I began flying the car with my mind. Mike still didn't believe me even though we were flying around in a car. I opened the door and rolled out of the car. I entered a free fall and could feel the cool wind rushing by be. I had been falling for a really long time when I noticed that there were clouds below me and above me. There was no sign of the ground or any footing whatsoever. I flew around for while seeing nothing but infinite sky. I awake during the search for land

      June Adv. ToTM Completion (DILD)

      My body lifts into the air as the elevator plunges into a free-fall. Alright, don't panic. I can control the speed of my decent via Flight.

      Oh, right, that means I'm dreaming. So, enacting my plan, I Fly down in tandem with the elevator. Unfortunately, the pull of gravity turns out to be a little too strong, and now I have less than a second to right myself before the inevitable impact. Luckily, I pull it off, and my feet and legs take the full brunt of of the blow.

      Prying open the elevator door, I walk out into the lobby. High profile contractors are still streaming in through the sliding-glass doors. What was my goal for tonight again? Pyrokinesis, wasn't it? Yeah, that sounds about right.

      My plans set, I raise my hands to either side of me. Then, pulling from my Heroes archetypes, I create a good sized orange flame in each one and begin to light the room ablaze. Jettisons of fire expelled from my palms and caught on the walls and ceiling. The DCs didn't really seem to notice.

      After the room was burning sufficiently, I felt the need for higher levels of destruction. Waving my arms around as if I were Fire Bending, I manage to increase the size and strength of the fire on one wall. Heading over to it, I bask in the heat of my creation. I say something along the lines of, "It is not the fire that warms me, it is I who warms the fire." Then, I take a bite out of a nearby sandal. It was delicious.

      Green Grass, High Tides, and Tall Drops (DILD)

      Looking down at her finished painting, I smiled at the stick figures it had taken her five Fast Forwards to complete. It was a rough depiction of a hilled cliff-side, and each person in the piece was crudely labeled. Well, let's see what I can do. I grab her hand.

      "Hold on tight."

      I Teleport.

      The world around us spins as it fades almost instantaneous into blackness. Remembering the painting of the supposed future, I reach my other hand down into the void and feel the cool dew-covered grass that was going to be beneath us momentarily. Sure enough, we reach our destination.

      Vivid blue skies with their whiter than white clouds lined the green-hilled cliff-side. In the distance, deep-blue shining oceans met the lighter colored skyline. The beauty of this place was both surprising and awe-inspiring. A little ways below us were a few of the characters from the painting, lounging on the edge of the cliff. I let go of the painter's hand, and she immediately took off.

      Wanting to really bring the picture to life, I started rolling down the hill. Spinning, spinning, ever faster, alternating blue skyline and green grass--oh the wonder of it all. And then I ran out of ground.


      As it was, my current trajectory would land me face first into some rocks protruding from the cliff-face about a hundred feet down. Not fun. Turning mid-fall, I powerfully kick off from the side of the cliff, netting me just enough distance to have nothing but air between me and the water 300 feet below. Tumbling downward, I couldn't help but think, Hitting the water at this height will be like hitting concrete.

      Thanks rationality, you're a real life-saver.

      Not wanting to take the easy route out and fly away, I let myself drop, picking up speed every second. Almost at the water, I brought my feet below me, pointed my toes downward, and crossed my arms in front of my chest. Below, several groups of people were already in the ocean, enjoying the relatively calm waters. Almost there. . .


      The sensation as my feet broke the surface and my body shot down into the refreshingly brisk water was beyond words. A blue universe surrounded me, and I didn't have a care in the world. Floating there, weightless, pumping cold liquid though my lungs, I relished the experience. I didn't want to wake up.

      So, I didn't. . .

      Not for awhile anyways. >.>
