      Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

      Lucid #245: The Third Arm

      I’m sitting next to Wife at a little craft table, both of us working on our laptops. I don’t know what she’s doing, but I seem to be writing some code for the game. My iPod is laying on the desk next to me, and I try to cue up some music on it. I swipe and poke randomly at the screen, and a song starts playing. Horrifyingly, the performer in the song is me! I’m braying out some horrible-sounding song that’s a cross between “Tribute” and just random squawking.

      I desperately stab at the screen to try to make this stop. Now some British synth-pop is playing instead, much better. I note how strange the screen appears, and I remember to
      look for the dream. I stand up, and find that both Wife and the craft table appear to have vanished. I remember my intention to summon Dreamer and attempt the bonus Task of the Month (to find and play a musical instrument that doesn’t exist in waking life.)

      For some reason, I have this very strong belief that the dream is taking place in my childhood home and that it’s completely empty. I affirm that Dreamer is already here in the room with me but I don’t believe it. I walk from room to room, saying things like, “[Dreamer], you’re right around the corner…” but never quite believing it.

      I look down at my hands and say, “[Dreamer], you’re walking right beside me.” As I say this, a third arm extends right out of my chest, lining up its palm with my own palms. The upper part of the arm is covered by the sleeve of a purple polo shirt. I wonder whether this is Dreamer’s arm…? The purple sleeve seems really promising, but the arm kinda has a man-hand that looks more like mine. I think about what I can do with this to complete the summon, but can’t quite figure anything out before the arm vanishes.

      I proceed into the den, saying out loud again that I’m expecting to find “[Dreamer]” here (using her waking life name.) I say something about her being “purple”, and expect to see her. As I turn my gaze around the room, I spy a purple director’s chair in the corner, but no Dreamer sitting in it.

      Again I expect to see “purple” Dreamer, but instead I summon a purple trampoline, leaned up against the wall! And now look, there’s a purple wall hanging over one of the windows. I peer through the window, seeing only darkness beyond. I feel like there’s no certain dreamworld beyond this house right now, and even though I consider the idea of leaving, I feel nervous about trying this.

      Maybe I just need to try calling her “Dreamer” instead of using her waking life name. I try this for a while, too, but I’m having a terrible time shaking this idea that the house is empty. I sense that I’ve let myself get stuck and that I should be able to think my way out of this. I call out a few more times, noting that I’ve actually had quite a bit of dream time. I worry that I should have done more with the third arm or that cool-looking purple trampoline. It isn’t long before
      the dream ends.

    2. Physics Class iPod

      9/28/2013

      Dream 1:

      I was in Physics class (which I took last year). I was sitting next to a blond, Caribbean girl. I was trying to make small talk with her. I also brought my iPod to class, along with the dock. I played it in Physics class. The whole time it was there, I was afraid someone would steal it. That is all.

    3. Murders in Graveyards, Presentations in School

      by , 12-31-2012 at 03:51 PM (Exploring My Mind)
      Remembered two dreams this morning. The first one involved...DUNDUNDUN MURDERRRRRRRRRRRR.
      Suddenly, there was a murder. I didn't freak out about it or anything. My family and I decided to stay at a nearby hotel, just to be a little safer. While at the hotel, I caught wind of a rumor about some ace-detective-turned-pastor who would be going to the crime scene in the nearby graveyard to solve the clues. Out of no where, I was watching the pastor investigating, almost like a cutscene in a video game. He didn't investigate for very long. Probably found what he needed to.
      This is when I decided to go to the graveyard myself. I felt a little spooked, but I brought my iPod with me and listened to MCR while walking around the graveyard.
      Should've used that as a way to go lucid, I was listening to a song by MCR that didn't even exist.
      I got to the back part of the graveyard to find a weird looking bug in a black shell. The shell popped open, and a scary looking, browin-ish colored beetle crawled out, screeching. I screamed and fled in terror, and looked behind me, seeing the beetle take to the air with vibrant colored wings. I ran as fast as I could out of the graveyard, and made it out, but not before feeling a stinging pain on my shoulder...
      Now for the other dream.
      For some reason, I wasn't in my body, but instead in the body of a police officer with a mustache. I was hiding from this extremely nasty guy in a sumo outfit, and when his back was turned, I jumped out and made him sit on a chair so I could interrogate him. Sadly, I forget how that conversation went, but I do recall it being very short.
      I stepped out into the nearby hallway, and suddenly, I was back in my body again. I found some friends of mine who aren't actually my friends irl, and we went down this hallway called 'The Troubled Kids Hallway'. It looked like a normal hallway, but anyways. We made it out into this auditorium that resembled my old lunch room from middle school, and kids were lined up getting ready to watch a presentation. I found my girlfriend, and she waved at me, but her expression was one of unease. Her hair was dyed red-orange in color, unlike the black color she has in real life.
      For some reason, I wasn't allowed to sit next to her, so I found a seat far away and sunk into it, saddened that I couldn't be with her.

      And that was that. I have a little fragment of me using Assassin's Creed-styled parkour climbing to travel around a city, but I think that was a part of the murder dream. I think.
    4. Weird iPod

      by , 08-30-2012 at 08:52 PM
      Only one dream fragment that I can remember, and not a very detailed or interesting one…

      I’m in a school cafeteria––some weird mixture of my middle & high school cafeterias. I’m sitting at a table with some of my friends. At least, I remember Abby and Christopher (two of my best friends) being there, and some other random people.

      Christopher has an iPod with him, and Abby and I steal it (or, you know, just take it away from him temporarily––not like we’re taking it from him forever). We start messing with it and making some weird playlist. His iPod has some weird feature where you can like, make a playlist within a playlist. So, our playlist actually has like four parts or something. It’s pretty neat.

      (I guess it would be kind of pointless, but it would be cool if it actually existed seeing as I tend to make such long playlists... Haha.)
    5. Old Sturbridge Village, Library, Family Reunion, and Hunger Games

      by , 08-21-2012 at 04:25 PM
      I recall four dreams from last night:

      DREAM #1

      I go to some village with my family... I guess it's kind of like Old Sturbridge Village or something. We don't have long to be there because it's about to close. They make everyone take out their phones and iPods and leave them at the front entrance on top of a blanket. I felt self-conscious because my iPod looks really small compared to everyone else's.

      In the village place, we go to a bookstore. I dance around in the bookstore singing a song about Pinkie Pie. ... Yup.

      DREAM #2

      I'm at a library, and I'm helping a woman return her materials. But then I'm not sure where to return the CDs because I can't find the slot for audio/visual returns. Suddenly there are like a hundred different return slots at the library desk and I can't figure out what any of them mean. So I just leave the CDs lying around and hope one of the librarians will find them. The woman I helped sends her son to find me, and he gives me a card with money in it. Then I go outside and my dad is there to pick me up. I'm still worrying about the CDs.

      DREAM #3

      Brief dream about some kind of family reunion, I think at my grandma's house. My mom is complaining about how she doesn't like one of her cousins, which I find shocking since I thought they were friends.

      DREAM #4

      I'm being forced into a Hunger Games type of competition, where a bunch of kids have to fight with each other and one kid has to kill everyone else. Except, we all have to wear ridiculous outfits while we're fighting. We each have some kind of personal assistant who shows us what we're going to wear. My assistant is this kind of chubby bald guy, and my outfit is this ridiculous Victorian-looking yellow dress with a lot of buttons up the front and a tiered skirt. Then I have to wear a yellow leather jacket over it.

      We all get changed in the same room. I change next to Fiona (my sister), because she is also in the competition. She has to wear a purple dress. The bald guy is in the room with all of us, but he politely turns and looks at the wall so he doesn't see everyone naked.

      I'm already starting to plan how I'm going to kill anyone who tries to attack me. Apparently I will have a sword for my weapon, and I plan to throw it at anyone who comes near me, and I think this is a totally foolproof plan.

      Later on, I'm doing my hair next to some girl with pale, short blond hair. For some reason I know her name is Juliet, and I'm convinced that she used to go to Hampshire (where I go to school) but then dropped out, even though she doesn't exist in real life. Anyway, she says something to me like, "Everyone who dies will be a ghost. And the person who wins will be a monster." And in my dream I think that's the deepest thing ever.

      Afterward, we all get a last dinner with our families. So I'm sitting at a table with my family, but I'm still thinking about what Juliet said. Fiona is like, "I have so much energy right now!" And I'm like, "But Fiona, we have to kill people!" And that's about where the dream ends.
    6. Zelda Songs

      by , 08-08-2012 at 12:07 PM (Fennecgirl's Collection of Dreams)
      I had a dream last night that my friend Lizz and I were listening to Zelda songs (from the game soundtracks) on my iPod. I was trying to guess the songs, I think. Also, I think we were on a train for some reason. Anyway, one song came on, and I said, "You can skip this; it's from a cutscene." The song was The Revival's Completion from the Spirit Tracks OST (i.e., the part where Malladus is revived). I looked at the iPod and realized that it wasn't anything from Spirit Tracks; it was music from the new Zelda game (not Skyward Sword; it was a Wii remake of the original).
    7. Doctor Who Dreams/Second LD

      by , 07-23-2012 at 01:36 PM (Fennecgirl's Collection of Dreams)
      I went to bed around midnight (kinda late for me) and woke up at some point during the night due to a thunderstorm. I fell back asleep not long after it passed and had the first dream I remember from last night. It was about the Doctor (the Eleventh Doctor, to be specific). I was watching in third-person, by the way. Anyway, he went into this weird, cartoon-like place. It became realistic fairly quickly, and then there was some epic battle I can barely recall between the Doctor and some guy I'm assuming was a bad guy.

      I woke up again at 6:30 and decided to go back to sleep. This time, I dreamed that I WAS the Doctor... and I was just outside at my church. I went around to the side of the building (which is actually my friend's backyard; she's the pastor's daughter and lives next door to the church. Their backyard essentially doubles as church property) to find the TARDIS and Amy Pond. I found the TARDIS right where I expected and entered it. Unlike on the show, it was NOT bigger on the inside. Anyway, for some reason, I got mad at Amy (who had apparently been allowed to fly the TARDIS) for leaving it out in the rain (I'm not sure why; besides, it was barely even raining).

      (It's not really surprising my mind would dream up something like that, seeing as I went to church yesterday and then watched Doctor Who later. Well, it is a bit odd that I was the Doctor, though... I'm almost ALWAYS myself in dreams.)

      I woke up to find it was only 6:45. I drifted off to sleep yet again and woke up without recalling any dreams... or so I thought. I noticed a big Pikachu bead sprite on my wall and couldn't remember it ever being there, so I looked at my hand to see if I was dreaming. I counted five fingers, concluded that I wasn't dreaming, and picked up my iPod to check the time. Well, whatever the time was, it wasn't 103:53. Now, I knew I that I WAS dreaming after all. After the two attempts it took to unlock my iPod (it glitched up the first time), I noticed that I had some apps I don't have in real life as well as a different background. The background was bright orange. Upon closer inspection, I realized it had a picture with rather a lot of text over the top (also in orange, but in a different shade). I tried to read what it said but discovered that it was all in gibberish.

      I put my iPod down and sat up, ready to try some dream control. Despite having full (or, at the very least, a lot of) control over myself, it didn't occur to me at the time that I had immediate LD goals (i.e., completing the TOTM and meeting my dream guide), so I just decided to do the first thing that came to mind. I closed my eyes. 'When I open my eyes, I will be in... Skyloft!' I thought to myself, naming the first fictional place that came to mind. I opened my eyes, a bit disappointed that I was still in my room.

      I remembered that some people unintentionally wake up when they close their eyes, so I checked my iPod again to make sure I was still dreaming. It still said the time was 103:53. I was still dreaming. Being one who likes to sleep in in the mornings, I laid back down and closed my eyes, finding myself back in reality shortly after.
    8. 17.06.2012 - REM rebound, semi lucid dream and several non lucid.

      by , 06-18-2012 at 12:44 PM
      Date: 17/06/2012
      Place: Spare Bed in family member's house (a familiar bed I often sleep in)
      Time of getting into bed: 12.25am

      Dream 1 - Collection of a few dreams, 1 x Semi Lucid rest are non lucid.

      As I fall to sleep, I instantly start dreaming. Possibly REM rebound? The dreams are nothing special, I am watching friends talking in their living room, it lasts a few seconds and then I wake. This happens perhaps 4 or 5 times. The 5th time I do remember thinking 'I'm already dreaming but I just fell to sleep? Is that possible?' Hence a semi lucid dream. However I woke up instantly after thinking this.

      Dream 2 - Non Lucid

      I am in an old fashioned orphanage, which is an all boys orphanage. The boys are young and scruffy, looking like something from Oliver twist. One of the bigger boys tells us to leave as we are going to be chased by some other boys. We don't leave as we are eating. Our plates are filled with glitter of all different mixed up colours, I watch another boy as he is eating the glitter.

      Dream 3 - Non Lucid

      I struggled to remember this dream.
      I am in a big market stall, farmers market type place. It is big and people are walking around. I have been told to work on a stall, cutting up meat. This disgusts me and I am very unhappy and complain about it. Some friends are with me, maybe they also cut up meat but they try to support me. I do it anyway, but cutting up the meat is so traumatizing I try to put my Ipod on to take my mind off it. I never press play. The meat is large, circular and has arseholes in it.

    9. Damaged Ipod charge cable, dream fragment (01 June 2012)

      by , 06-02-2012 at 12:23 PM
      Key:
      {Curly brace & blue} .... Relevent waking life details before entry, if appropriate

      Black .... Dream body/narative text

      (Standard braces & dark green, bold) .... Dream notes, lucidity, time. method etc

      ************************************************** ***********************************

      {This one is from last night.... (02 June 2012).. Recall of fragment only}

      (Non-Lucid ... No induction technique tried..)

      I check the USB/charge skinny connector is plugged into the bottom of my iPod, wondering why it wont charge.
      I notice that a couple of inches further down the cable, the outer sleeve is damaged & that there is bare copper showing..
      .. I think "Ah, thats why. Its going to be REALLY expensive day, I'll have to buy a new one (cable) today"
      Dont get the logic... In waking life, ipod cables are not expensive

    10. Yay, more fragments .-.

      by , 04-22-2012 at 12:13 PM (~Cookieh's Land of Cookies~)
      Bwah.

      [COLOR="#483d8b"]- Some couple fighting in a store.

      - I had just left the schoolhouse, it was 2pm and I suppose Tuesday. I was walking to the parking lot, but before that some of my friends wanted to talk to me. There was L and E, even though irl I had just met E, she was pretty friendly.
      Okay, then I could proceed to the parking lot only to see that I had missed the bus again. I walked til the end of the small road, checked the time on my ipod and when it was a few minutes past 2, I was sure that I had missed it and started walking to my mom's workplace. Then I woke.[/COLOR]

      Can't recall anything else right now.

    11. School on fire.

      by , 04-02-2012 at 12:03 PM (~Cookieh's Land of Cookies~)
      [COLOR="#483d8b"]I was in class. The teacher was looking at me >:C, cause I was laughing and not paying attention. Suddenly some security guards entered the classroom. They told us that there's a fire on the first floor and then they left. We were all still in the classroom, some calling their parents, some just not understanding what's happening. I snuck out and went to see where the fire is. I was on the first floor, when I saw some of my friends going up the stairs. I followed them.
      There were very many people on that floor and I didn't exactly understand, why were they all still there. I quickly went back to the first floor, when I saw some of my old classmates about to join the people upstairs. I tried to warn them and tried to convince them to just go outside. They just rolled their eyes and kept on going. I said quietly to myself "whatever, they were bitches anyways..." and went out of the house. I went to the bus station to catch a bus.
      I am now sitting on the bus, taking pictures through the window with my ipod. The bus disappears and I am walking on the street. There's this bum, who asks me about potato and cheese prices in the store (w...t..f?). "Is it true, that potatoes cost 38 min/kg?" (believe me, I lol'd when I woke). Images of my local store flash through my head, I see the price of cheese and I say "No."
      Okay, nvm the bum, I kept walking after that. Even though I *should* have been pretty far, I could still see the bus station in the distance. I am still taking pictures every once in a while.[/COLOR]

      ---

      This one is short, [COLOR="#483d8b"]I was in class again. My classmates were suddenly rather bitchy towards me, telling me I should get out of this school. Then the teacher came and she told me that I put others in danger and they want me to leave this school. I was like, dafuq is this, what did I do?
      Also, I had a piercing in my nose in that dream :D...it was a quite large safety pin.[/COLOR]

      That's it, I guess?
      Seeya.

      Does it matter if I don't add tags? I just hate them.

    12. A group of...stalkers?

      by , 03-30-2012 at 11:07 AM (~Cookieh's Land of Cookies~)
      So, okay, first DJ entry here, not sure how often I'll start using this.

      [COLOR="#2e8b57"]lucids[/COLOR], [COLOR="#483d8b"]non-lucids[/COLOR]

      It's a non-lucid, which could've turned into a ld so easily, but nah.

      This morning I missed the bus, so I sent a text to my teacher saying I missed the bus and will come later. I had 3 hours til the next bus, I decided to sleep.

      [COLOR="#483d8b"]I was sitting on my bed and I had just sent that text. I got a weird reply from my teacher's number, when suddenly someone called me (from the teacher's phone). They were already talking at a high speed while I am just sitting there wondering who is this. I'm like f this and I end the call (it was 13 seconds long). Then suddenly the same number starts sending me some weird app-kind of stuff (on my ipod O_o). I tried to remove whatever they were (slide my finger on it and a remove button should show up) and a red button came. I thought it was a "remove" button but..it was a red "like" button. I had already pushed it when I realised that. I pushed it again to unlike but nothing happened. I jammed the button a bit. There was this counter that said I had pushed it 8 times. Then I logged on fb to remove the like. I had logged in and then thought "What if they hacked my ipod? They might have my password, I use it at quite a few places" (the pw in the dream WAS my real pw :D). Then they tried to call me again, but I didn't answer. I turned on the computer to start changing passwords. At startup, there were suddenly colorful texts among the white. It was turning into an irc chatroom :'D (my kvirc has that black theme irl). There were several people talking to me about "what she did" and "we're gonna find you". I had no idea what they were talking about, but I was scared.[/COLOR]

      I can't remember atm, was there anything else before I woke or not.

    13. Kitchen Musical

      by , 11-15-2011 at 12:59 AM
      I was in the kitchen that I know think might have been the kitchen or some room from a ranch I visited some time ago. Me and my mom were there and on the table was a huge Disc Jokey(DJ) thing. It had two giant record type things and I think some ports and stuff for iPod and discs and stuff. I remember my mom leaving and I stayed there to try and figure out the system and I remember getting annoyed that I needed two iPods when I only had one so I couldn't mix songs. Soon after that is when I woke up I think but It was annoying because it was my alarm.
    14. The iPod Shuffle

      by , 10-26-2011 at 06:05 AM (Roving the Dreamscape)
      In my dream, my father told me to load songs to his iPod Shuffle(my dad just received an ipod shuffle recently so that must be the cause why I'm dreaming this). So I got it form him and started to walk in my brother's room and opened my laptop. Aaaaaand, that's about it . Well here's an image of what his iPod looks like(I don't really know what's his iPod Shuffle's generation, but I think it's either the 2nd or 4th) :

    15. zoo

      by , 09-03-2011 at 11:27 PM
      really weird one on thurs (01/09) where i was riding around on my bike alot. eventually i realised i was just outside the zoo. its great because it always feels the same with different parts of some zoos but always based around the most local one. you can see alot of the animals by just going by outside but the ones where you actually get into the zoo are pretty amazing but never done it lucid yet.

      i was just outside this massive lion field and i had to go back for my bike just incase i had to make a getaway. as i was coming back up the hill i saw the elephants in the back ground which were the size of houses almost like something from a dali painting. this almost got me lucid but i didnt quite make the jump.

      the other odd bit was that i had these riding shoes that also seemed to double up as some kind of ipod type thing. this got me thinking about dress sense and it was odd because i remembered having certain different clothes from previous dreams yet still didnt get lucid. i remember thinking that i had lots of good bits of clothing but never really coordinated. then i realised that i didnt care at all
