    1. Dream or prank?

      by , 05-03-2016 at 09:31 AM
      I had a doctor's appointment. The recepcionist game me a key for a locker where I could leave my things. The hospital was like a maze, I had a hard time finding the locker.

      On my way back home, I realized I had left my jacket and phone in the locker, so I went back, only to see the hospital had become an asylum. I asked the whereabouts of the locker again to the recepcionist, but they were all crazy people, so I started running. At some point I noticed one girl looked like she knew what was going on, which made me stop. I said out loud: "alright guys, this is either a dream or a prank". For some reason, I ruled out the first possibility at once, deciding it was just those guys playing a prank on me. They admitted to it, which made me very angry because I had had a bad time. I demanded they gave back the things I had in the locker, and before anyone could notice me, I took off in my car so they had to come back on foot.

    2. Tunnel of dreams

      by , 08-25-2014 at 01:54 PM
      I was with a few people, probably family members, in a kind of dark room. I was sitting on the floor in front of a magic tunnel slide, I could see a lot of flashing images coming from it. Apparently, it was a tunnel of dreams. I decided to throw myself into it and as I was going through it I saw a ton of images, like an endless sequence of pictures from dreams passing before my eyes at full speed, but I didn't get to stay in any of those dreams.

      This was the last REM cycle before waking up and it was hard for me to tell which of those images were from this weird dream and which were fragments previous to this one.
    3. Research about lucid dreaming

      This is a non-lucid dream I had tonight, but it boosted my motivation.

      I was at my house, sitting on a couch, reading some newspapers. Some articles published in them caught my attention. Each paper had an article which talked about studies that have been done about lucid dreaming. They all came to the conclusion that people who have lucid dreams often, see their intellectual habilities enhanced, while also being happier than people who don't have them. This was supposedly due to the fact that lucid dreamers have a higher level of awareness and self-awareness in their daily lives and this seemed to create new neurological pathways in the central nervous system. Interesting.

      In the dream I was glad such things were being published because maybe it would encourage other people to take the journey, but deep down I knew mostly everyone wouldn't pay much attention to it.

      I have heard lucid dreamers say they feel more intellectually capable since being into it, but I don't know this for myself. What I have felt though is that I more easily feel happier because of it. By making lucid dreaming a background thought in my mind, I always feel I'm making steps forward to better myself, so to speak. And as for the neurological pathways thing... I don't really know where I've got the idea from, maybe I read it somewhere but I don't remember. But casually, I'm studying the nervous system in a Physiology subject at uni, no perhaps it's not so much of a coincidence.
    4. Help me out here.

      by , 08-08-2012 at 08:01 PM (Mysteries of my subconscious)
      Okay, keep in mind that I am 16. And that lately in order to become aware, in my dreams I would just KNOW that I'm dreaming without a reality check, and sometimes don't even use a reality check. (which I know, is bad.)

      So, it started out as me being in school one day. My friend that I kinda avoid hanging out with sometimes asked me to hang out with him, and I kind of avoided it. I rescheduled anyways. Then I went into my classroom that I was supposed to go into. It was my CAD classroom (which is a 3d computer design class). Then my teacher showed us a new seating chart, and I went to sit in my seat. Moments after I got there I appeared in this courtyard at my school that wasn't my actual courtyard.

      This is where it starts getting weird...
      I was in a dream scene that I had been in previously that night for an entirely different dream. I believe it may have been in a dream of mine last night too.
      So i hear people chanting something about dreaming, and then I quietly chant that "I will have a lucid dream tonight" I kept chanting it to myself and I only did a small reality check to ask if I was dreaming. I didn't catch myself one bit.

      Later on into that dream, I felt as if I woke up in waking life, and then rolled over in my bed and the scene changed again into a water world that was portrayed as a video game world in my head. I WAS the character in the game though, and I WAS actually scared of the feeling of drowning. At one point, I came into realization that I messed up in my last dream. That I didn't do a reality check. Then I was telling myself I have got to start looking at my hands more and really focusing in on that stuff, no matter what. I didn't do one reality check I believe.
      I carried on just thinking that.

      And then, I felt as if I kind of woke up. I felt myself roll over in my bed, keeping my eyes closed, and affirming myself that I would become aware. I continually did that. Then I felt some shaking, and I heard another bed shaking inside my house, and I feared something might be happening to my mom, and then I was focusing in on that. I felt my cat lift it's head up and jump off my bed. Then I rolled over, opened my eyes, and was in my room and all the shaking stopped. My door was closed [so a cat couldn't have been in my room].

      What was this for me? Was it vibrations and those vibration noises? Because like I said, I felt my cat jump off my bed. Could that have been my dream guide as I was entering into the dream? I didn't feel any sort of sleep paralysis, because and I was able to just roll over twice and open my eyes within those few seconds.
      I sort of thought that this sensation was awesome though. I thought it was exhilarating once I woke up. I simply loved it. I thought it was a great dream, even though I only reached layer 0 minor in the layers a lucid dream.
