    1. No Outside

      by , 08-01-2022 at 11:56 PM
      20-50 residents, including my mother, lived in a building with no windows. The residents were more than roommates, operating as a small community within these walls. In what appeared to be a converted commercial building, they constructed their lives as if none had ever considered venturing outside.

      It was cozy, despite the makeshift bedrooms being sectioned off by curtains instead of walls. Multiple families shared each wing.

      The strangeness I witnessed didn't stop at the building or living conditions of its residents. As I interacted with the residents in my discrete human form, I realized how out of touch they were. They had never seen a stranger before, and yet they had little interest in where I came from. There was no one in charge of this group either. No bosses, no landlords. The more I interacted with them, the more they seemed to me like children.

      Even my own mother, a fiercely independent woman, needed assistance keeping warm at night with a blanket and space heater.

      Something wasn't right.

      I wandered from room to room, finding a portal in one of the hallways that transported me to an almost identical, but clearly separate alternate universe featuring the same building and families. These people existed across a multiverse with minor differences between each one.

      In my exploration, I also found an exit. It led out into a parking garage with no cars. Empty, except for the robotic drones patrolling the parameter. They appeared like hovering disks with cameras below their rims. The way they stopped and stared at me gave me the impression that I should not get any closer.

      I went back in and asked the residents about these drones. They told me not to go beyond the garage. The drones would have to shoot you dead for attempting to leave. This information was casual and lighthearted, of no concern to anyone. These people were born there and content to live out the rest of their lives as such, from what I gathered. They couldn't comprehend a world outside this building, nor did they desire to. They explained to me that the drones protected them.

      The drones also kept the utilities and computers running, provided essential food and items distributed through a credit currency system, and enforced laws to keep the community safe—even though there was no crime within the community. Criminal activity was rare, since the group was small and there were plenty of resources to go around. Everyone was, for the most part, happy.

      Going back to the parking garage, I transformed into my dragon to deal with the drones. I turned itself invisible and flew over them. The drones spotted me in spite of my cloaking and fired powerful shots, but my dragon absorbed them without taking any damage.

      I rounded a corner to lose the drones, and made my way down the stairs to the exit of the parking garage. When I got towards the bottom of the stairs, I found what was beyond it... The thing that the residents claimed to be protected from, and which kept them trapped here. Even though they had never seen it before, they were right. Halfway down a flight of stairs was a bright white abyss. The world ended here, and there was nothing. There was no "outside" for them to yearn for, nothing for them to comprehend. No wonder they seemed baffled by the prospect of an outside.

      As the dreamer, I can see the abyss. If I touch it, an electrical shock goes through my spine and I wake up, often accompanied by sleep paralysis (though I've been learning how to avoid it).
      The residents can't see or comprehend it, and will dissolve into nonexistence if they touch the abyss. For them, it's lethal.

      There is a group of more powerful entities who can see the abyss and travel through it. They've hunted me before. No doubt they created this place, and are running it. I had a feeling they were using these people (and these facilities) to speed up evolution, though I don't recall how I knew.

    2. Possible lucid dream with a discovery about stabilizing

      by , 05-20-2022 at 04:52 PM (Nef's dream journal)
      It all started with me doing something that I knew I couldn't do in real life
      or so the sense of limitlessness was the main hint for me

      So when I came to, I tried my usual routine of trying to stabilize
      I was at home ofc, and it didn't work, the dream started to fall apart, the usual "fog" started to take over
      That's when it randomly came, Instead of tactile I focused on visuals, the colors and the detail around me
      And it all came back
      and for the first time in my dream-life , I left my house
      And it tried to fall apart 2 or 3 times until I got to the streets but I did the same again, and it worked
      after that things got blurry for me for a minute or a half, and somehow I was at a meat factory that was supposedly in the next street
      I met my old friend there, he was working there, and he was younger now, looked totally different than irl, more like when we were in high school
      I was like "man , this is a dream ,this is not real, stop for a moment look at me, this is a dream", he was kinda suprised and a bit annoyed, as if I'm hallucinating or something
      then we went out, I observed the streets , it was night, the sun was about to rise, but the stars were still shining bright, I looked at the cars passing by, it was kind of vivid.
      That's when I woke up, after 4-5 minutes of time I bought with this trick, the fog now took over, and I felt that I have to wake up now.



      note: potential discovery is that focusing on the visuals around you might stabilize dreams or bring it,and yourself back from the waking process
      although I can't tell if that was a full dream or a very late morning hypnagogic session, it was over 10 am so I can't tell if it would work in a mid REM dream the same way
      also somehow I just can't seem to find the ideal time to try lucid dreaming, in teh morning, whether I wake up at 4-5-6 am, I'm just always unable to go back to sleep if I dont completely let go of myself
    3. Low level Lucid

      by , 05-19-2022 at 06:54 AM (MoSh's DJ: The Best Dream Journal in The Universe.)
      Jamie

      Just a dream where jamie is saying, " I'll always be there for you." Can't tell if she was telling me this or someone else... no context.

      lucid?

      I was lucid in a strange room. There was a circular walkway with glass like windows. Decided to teleport through the windows. I pushed my hands on the glass until it flt wstery and i kind of pushed myself through. On he other side I ws walking down a road. Lots of Elk And Moose were in this area. Two blonde women I seemed to know were behind me.

    4. My successfull WILD attempt

      by , 05-16-2022 at 12:10 AM
      Hi, guys!

      I've been out for some while, but I still practicing my lucid nap dreams[1] and had some little progress at the meanwhile.
      And today I'm gonna tell you my best WILD attempt!

      As a Sunday, I realized I could sleep more. So after I Woke up at the 9am to drink water, I got Back To Bed

      My body was really relaxed and after about 10min I wasn't feeling my body anymore, but just my head. My mind was awake and I was not having any other hallucination.

      I stayed in the position for more 10min to relax my mind, but I wasn't getting nowhere, so I moved without opening my eyes and slowly turned my belly down.

      At this position I could feel my mind relax easily. My body was out again and suddenly I started hearing a typical noise that I hear always I start to feel asleep. It's like a TV out of signal and this noise start to get louder and louder then I just heard a plunger on my ears. This repeated for 3 times in about 5min. Just don't know what is this, but it was funny hehe.

      Then, after the third plunger sound I was on my kitchen with a know Brazilian nun on my side. Her name is Coen nun, I'm leaving a video link from her at the bottom of this post[2]. She was guiding me on my dream and talking things like: "Calm down, you need to move slowly to not wake you up! Move only your legs first." And I moved just my legs up and down. I moved really slow because I could feel my body both on the kitchen standing and lying on my bed.

      So I blinked and I was lying in my bed, but I realized I was still dreaming because I saw I was with a blurry vision. I was still hearing the nun talking to me to move slowly then I did it. I was with my belly down then I just moved up my left arm, then slowly my right arm. At this time I was confident to get out of bed really slow. Then I did it!

      Now I'm sitting on my bed and looked out my window. I saw the green from the trees and it was really beautiful. Then my vision started to blurry very hard, but I forced I talked loudly that I wanted to continue in the dream and after some attempts I did it again and my vision was back again.

      So I opened my window and just exited my room by it and started to climbing the wall like the spider man!

      At this time I heard the sound of my door opening then I thought somebody was about to wake me up and I woke up myself.

      When I woke up, my heart beating really fast I don't know why. I was feeling I was breathless, but it normalized soon.

      That's it!

    5. Overcoming Sleep Paralysis (if you already have it)

      by , 04-05-2022 at 07:22 PM
      After some careful consideration, I've decided to put my experiences of SP out there. It may be controversial and not a simple fix, but I hope this will be helpful to people who experience it.

      I had SP for over 20 years. The first remembered one happened around age 5-6 and it wasn’t particularly scary, but I had typical nightmare demon ones later.
      I sought treatment from psychiatrists and other professionals for underlying issues, but continued to have SP even after the treatment and recovery from mental issues. I eventually got rid of SP using dream control, incubation, and other tools learned from the LD community (you guys are a life saver!).

      I'm not professional. This is not medical advise. If you have a condition or medical issue, seek professional help. You may need treatment of underlying conditions.

      So if you have SP already or are scared of getting it some day, good news ahead! Read on and I’ll explain how it can be dealt with, and turned into a not-problem.

      Some misunderstandings seems to arise from confusion between hypnagogia and sleep paralysis, but these are two different states. The key difference is that you aren’t paralyzed for hypnagogia.
      There's also a difference between waking sleep paralysis, and having dreams about sleep paralysis. You can dream that it happened, but this isn't the same thing as having it when waking.

      If you're having dreams about SP though, the stuff below should still be helpful.

      So here's what you can do to deal with SP:
      - Know that it isn't real. All sensations are created by your mind. I've changed sensations in the moment, causing uncomfortable sensations or even the paralysis itself to fade away. It's controllable with your mind.
      - Know that you have control over your mind, and these hallucinations. I've used dream control and expectation to have friendly SP characters.
      - Practice relaxation with body and mind. You can use meditation, or just think about being comfy and wanting to LD.
      - Go to sleep from SP. This is an opportunity for WILD. You can enter an LD from SP.
      - View SP as an opportunity to do whatever you want.
      - Incubate ahead of time and plan your future experiences and intentions to have positive ones. I spent some time training my mind before bed to practice these things and get into the mindset, changing the way I previously viewed SP.
      - You can also practice SP in dreams. I summoned an SP demon in a lucid dream and turned it into a positive experience with incubation and dream control. We had a nice time.
      - Practice going to sleep inside LDs, and the results you want to get. I trained myself to use falling asleep as a teleportation method. Any time I go to sleep in an LD, I can teleport to another dream scene. I use this for both SP and LD nightmares, or even just mildly unplerasant LD situations.

      There's also another trick to getting out of SP, which I see a ton of people on Facebook, Redit, and elsewhere using—and that is to wake yourself up from SP with some kind of sudden movement. I did this consistently for years and it used to be my solution, but I've since discovered the items above are even more consistent and effective, so this is just another option. You can also yell or call out for help (and yes it can be heard by real people, if you sleep next to someone). I called for help and my SO woke me up from one before.
      But the list above is more thorough. Combining all these things, I haven't had any bad SP experiences in ages. I still get some bizarre experiences, but they tend to be exciting and positive.

      Good luck everyone and have fun!

    6. Robot Attack and Blind Driver

      by , 04-04-2022 at 03:31 PM
      Dreams from 04/01/2022

      ---

      I was in a house showing some DCs that everything was my dream. i could turn a plush cat into a real cat as a demonstration. The plush cat got up and started walking around after I willed it into life, morphing into a realistic cat as it went. I could talk to him, too. I don't remember the DCs reaction.

      There was fire outside though, so I walked out to look. Smoke billowed up into the sky and everyone was running in the same direction. The city was under attack. Robots were being used as weapons, shooting civilians as they ran.
      Somehow, I knew that these robots were just automations and our enemy was watching from somewhere else.

      I turned into my dragon and shielded DCs from gunfire as they safely ran past. Then I attacked, rising into the air and breathing a green beam at the machine. I don't know what this breath ability was but it seemed to slow down the machine.

      I was hit me a few times too, though. Didn't hurt, but I was slightly stunned each time. It then started scanning me, which forced me onto the ground, and I was completely paralyzed by the scanner (not SP, just in dream). I realized that it knew what I was (the creator of this dream) and was scanning me for information. It was getting closer too. I was about to get caught. I decided to flee by relaxing and going to sleep on the ground, which teleported me to another location (no longer paralyzed).
      Note: This came from longterm practice of going to sleep from sleep paralysis and entering LDs that way, or going to sleep in dreams to change things.

      I reappeared in some other part of the city that hadn't been destroyed yet. Me and a lucid dreaming buddy, Skyfall (who is blind), wanted to leave and he wanted to drive. He insisred that we were only going in a straight line, simple route, so it should be fine for a blind guy to drive.
      I agreed. Figured alright whatever, it's a dream anyway. So as he drove the car, it immediately veered off the road and i was like "Yeah, that’s what happens."
      So I helped drive the dream car with my mind, using telekenisis to keep it on the road while he steered. He did most of the driving work, i just kept it from veering.

      Woke up naturally in morning afterwards.

    7. Dream character cries about the nature of her existence.

      by , 03-31-2022 at 07:41 PM
      This is a cross-posted dream journal entry I originally posted on another site on Feb 10, 2022 10:11 PM.

      ---

      I just woke up from this lucid dream and thought it might be worth a post.

      DC = dream character.

      A DC wanted to borrow my phone to use eBay. As she got started, I saw she used her own account and asked her why. “Why didn’t you use my account?”

      She said “I don’t know” and seemed like she wanted to avoid the question.

      I asked her, “don’t you know my password?”

      She looked scared and shook her head no furiously.

      I told her, “Go ahead and tell me, I think you know it. What’s my password?”

      I figured this would be an interesting experiment.

      She shakily told me my password. It was correct, except one or two letters off. But she started breaking down and crying.

      I told her she did good and asked her what was wrong.

      She cried and told me it was horrifying, that she’s not her own person, that I’m inside of her brain like some kind of parasite.

      I sat down and told her “Nooo no no no. Look, you’re a part of me, that’s normal. I’m also a part of a collective, the human race. We’re all just a part of something.”

      She was really freaked out though, my attempts to comfort her didn’t work, and she ran off.

      I looked over at another DC who was standing there having seen the whole thing. I asked “Those parts of my password she got wrong… she knew them, didn’t she?”

      They nodded and said yes… She had purposely given part of the password incorrectly, because it scared her that she knew it.

      I walked outside and eventually woke up.

    8. How to Create A Persistent Realm

      by , 03-31-2022 at 07:36 PM
      What is a PR?
      PR stands for Persistent Realm and refers to plots, narratives, places, characters, and other elements that "persist" from one dream to the next. It's like creating a save file in your dream and resuming it the next time you go to bed. You might see the same dream character twice and eventually learn her name, frequent the same beach, or wear the same time-traveling watch in multiple dreams.

      Using PRs, you can create a whole world, cast of characters, and powers/devices, plots, and scenarios that you return to anytime you go to sleep! Ever wanted to go on an epic adventures with a genie? Journey to the center of the earth to look for treasure? Get abducted by aliens? Or have a dream family? You can with PRs. We spend a third of our lives dreaming, so we might as well be living it to the fullest extent!

      Lucidity and PRs
      Lucid dreaming is not required for PRs. You can start developing a PR any time even if you don't know how to lucid dream using prospective memory planning.

      Lucid dreaming is a great addition to a PR, though! It allows you to have greater control over your PR in the moment. PRs can also be used to facilitate longer lucid dreams, so the two go hand-in-hand.


      How to Develop a PR
      Developing a PR can be done either inside or while you are awake. You can either develop things from scratch, or work off of existing things.

      Dream Initiated PR Development
      In-dream development of PRs can be done with lucid dreaming simply by using dream control and engaging in whatever it is you want to do. If you repeat the same activities in multiple dreams, they will easily become habits that repeat naturally over time.
      Note: Wake-initiated PR development is still recommended for kickstarting your ideas, especially if you want specific things to happen in your PR (see below).

      If you're not lucid, wake-initiated PR development is recommend (see below). You can still develop PRs from within dreams, but not as deliberately. Going with the flow of your dreams and letting them unfold over time can result in natural PR-forming. The act of simply practicing dream recall, journaling, thinking about dreams, and increasing your awareness in dreams tends to result in more naturally recuring PR elements.

      PRs also develop naturally from paying attention to particular elements in your dreams, or doing the same things until you form consistent habits/routines. The more you pay attention to certain things in dreams, the more likely they are to naturally recur. Use this to your benefit by focusing on the things you want, and putting less attention onto the things you don't want.

      Wake Initiated PR Development
      What if you don't want to just wait around for something you like to appear? Say you want to give that dream character a name you picked out, find buried treasure on your recurring beach, or give your watch space-travel powers, too. This is where planning out PRs comes in.

      Prospective memory is a powerful tool for actively plan your PRs and make specific elements recur. You can choose to see a specific dream character in your next dream, or revisit a location you've been before. Sure, you could do this on the fly in a lucid dream, but we often don't have access to the same memories in dreams that we do while awake, so planning it ahead helps to ensure you will remember what you want to do and enhance your dream control (especially in the case of more complex goals).

      Before going to sleep, think about the setting you want, characters you want to meet, and things you want to experience. Imagine being in the dream you want while awake, and set your intention to have these dreams. Walk yourself through them before and after, how you'll get to what you want, and what you'll do with it. Make connections to strengthen your plans, walking yourself through narratives that "make sense" and have as much logi cohesion as possible.


      PR Development Strengthening
      - Connect what you want (your goal) with something you already have. Connecting scenery, characters, and other elements from can create a more cohesive structure that makes you more likely to revisit the PR.
      For example, if you want to set up a persistent area where you can go eat chocolate cake, think back to a previous dream you had with any building in it. Now imagine that there's a bakery with cake in that building. Imagine walking inside and meeting the chef, who wants to give you unlimited free cake! There's never any lines, and everything you want is on the menu.
      - Connect elements that 'make sense' to you. This will strengthen dream plans into something believable that you will have an easier time dreaming about. For example, it makes more sense to find chocolate cake in a bakery than under the sea. So if your goal is to eat chocolate cake, take the path of least resistence and create a persistent bakery in a city or town, not underwater.
      Disclaimer: You CAN create fanciful things like underwater bakeries! If that's your goal, it's absolutely doable. I just recommend, as a general rule, sticking with things that "make sense" unless you have a specific other goal in mind, simply because it's easier.
      - Associate a feeling. In addition to imagining your senses, you can also imagine the feelings in dreams to help form connections and create PRs based on those powerful emotional connections (which can have incredible influence over our dreams).
      For example, a small town bakery might elicit a feeling of old-timey personalized cakes with homemade frosting and higher prices, as opposed to a city bakery where you might have a greater selection of decadent premade cakes at lower prices.
      - Take advantage of pre-existing consistency. It's okay to deviate from previous plans, but staying consistent helps strengthen your PR. Personally, I go into PRs with a "don't fix it if it aint broke" mindset. This gives the PR a much more consistent framework (80%+ of my PR formed naturally, and I don't change things unless there's a reason to change them).
      - Set intention! Intention to do something in the future is a brilliant tool when put towards dream planning. When you tell yourself x is going to happen, it is surprisingly effective at making x happen in dreams. Have you ever anticipated waking up early to do something you're exited about, and then found that you woke up naturally before your alarm? Even if you aren't a well practiced lucid dreamer, people have a natural sense of intention and follow-through that naturally transfers into dreams.
      - Use repetition. The more you think about dreams and develop your PR, the more likely you are to succeed. You can even do it during the day.
      Note: repetition that is mindless and devoid of your thoughtful presence is not as helpful. If you are doing something like a mantra, make sure you're being mindful and not just repeating empty phrases.
      - Consider details. As you go through dreams in your head, include as much or as little details as you want. You don't have to think in great vivid detail for it to be effective, though you can if you enjoy doing so! Considering details can help reinforce your intention. Be aware that what you focus on now, is what your dream will likely focus on later.


      Frequently Asked Questions

      Q: Can I change something that already happened?
      A: Yes! Even if something already happened, you can change the past, present, and future of your PR. For example, if there was an FBI agent out looking for you in your PR, even if this has been going on for years, you can change it with logical plot twists. Maybe he was looking for someone who looked like you, and realizes the mistake in your next dream. Convince yourself of this new plot twist, form ideas around it, walk yourself through it, and it will occur.

      Q: What if I create an ongoing nightmare?
      A: The nice thing about dreams is that you have control over them. If there's something from a previous dream that you don't like, you can change it at any time whether during the dream itself or in the next dream. You're never forced to keep the same narrative going. Unlike waking life, persistent dream realms are your creation. You have complete control over it. YOU decide what continues, and what goes away.

      Q: ]But I don't want to control everything?
      A: Good point! I personally only plan about 10-20% of my PR. When you develop your PR either inside the dream or when awake, feel free to skip over/gloss over anything you don't want to control. You can set the stage for things as much or as little as you want. For example, you can plan to activate a portal to a magical realm without planning where it goes, and have the magical realm be a surprise.

      Q: Why does planning PRs while awake sound like MILD?
      Mwahaha! That's because it is. Planning PRs works similarly to MILD technique for lucid dreaming, but instead of becoming lucid, your goal is to trigger, engage, or modify your PR. Here's a guide for MILD that you can convert to your PR goals: https://skyfalldreams.net/guides/skyfalls-mild-guide/

      Q: How do I start lucid dreaming?
      A: Lucid dreaming is outside the scope of this guide. To get started, I recommend reading a recall guide:https://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/ner...l-guide-94405/
      Then, pick a lucid dreaming methodsk like MILD or WILD and you'll be set!

    9. 22-03-03 First LD in Ages

      by , 03-03-2022 at 09:07 AM
      Finally (without making any special effort) had a brief lucid episode. It was early in the morning and I was struggling to fall asleep again after a period of insomnia.
      I was daydreaming with my eyes closed, which turned into real dreams. Don't remember what happened, but at some point I was lying down (as if in bed, sleeping) in the middle of a street. I looked to a crossroad with another street, which was blocked off. There was a guy wearing a "Heroes" (TV-show) T-shirt. I remembered looking at some behind the scenes pictures of that show earlier that day (this really happened), and I figured the odds of that happening + a guy wearing a shirt of a show from 16-12 years ago were astronomically low. I decided to do a nose pinch reality check, and it was negative! My vision was very dark, though. I felt like it was all very fragile and unstable and trying to get up would probably wake me up. I tried to detect my real hands but couldn't. As the seconds ticked by the stability reduced further to the point where I just decided to open my eyes and return to reality.

    10. First DJ, 20+ Years of Lucid Dreaming

      by , 02-13-2022 at 03:57 AM
      Been meaning to start a journal here! Hello everyone.
      I've been lucid dreaming since about 1999-2000 (somewhere around then). Last year or so was my first time learning about the lucid dreaming communicaty. Very exciting! It's nice to see there are many others who are into something I've enjoyed for so long. I especially enjoy my 'persistent realm' (didn't know other people had these, or that there was a word for it until recently).

      Anyway, I shall jump right in with one of my recent lucid dreams! Dated 02/10/2022.

      DC = dream character.

      ---

      A DC wanted to borrow my phone to use eBay. As she got started, I saw she used her own account and asked her why. “Why didn’t you use my account?”

      She said “I don’t know” and seemed like she wanted to avoid the question.

      I asked her, “don’t you know my password?”

      She looked scared and shook her head no furiously.

      I told her, “Go ahead and tell me, I think you know it. What’s my password?”

      I figured this would be an interesting experiment.

      She shakily told me my password. It was correct, except one or two letters off. But she started breaking down and crying.

      I told her she did good and asked her what was wrong.

      She cried and told me it was horrifying, that she’s not her own person, that I’m inside of her brain like some kind of parasite.

      I sat down and told her “Nooo no no no. Look, you’re a part of me, that’s normal. I’m also a part of a collective, the human race. We’re all just a part of something.”

      She was really freaked out though, my attempts to comfort her didn’t work, and she ran off.

      I looked over at another DC who was standing there having seen the whole thing. I asked “Those parts of my password she got wrong… she knew them, didn’t she?”

      They nodded and said yes… She had purposely given part of the password incorrectly, because it scared her that she knew it.

      I went outside and continued with other less interesting things and eventually woke up.

      I haven't kept track of most of my dreams over the years, usually only the ones that seem noteworthy. That's it for this first entry!

      I have been trying to get back into lucid dreaming for a while now and I think it's starting to pay off because I had a profound and long lucid dream this morning. My favorite part is that my girlfriend was in it with me the whole time because I summoned her early on.

      I should note about my dream guide Juliana that she is also my tulpa now so we communicate nearly everyday. It has been wonderful! You can read more on how that happened here https://www.dreamviews.com/beyond-dr...ml#post2245163 Another thing is her appearance has refined a bit and she's not so tall. Just average height for a woman. Just mentioning that since I saw she was 6'2 in that potion dream with her.

      For the last 3 months I have been dreaming of being in the virtual reality simulation the Oasis often. It comes from Ready Player One and it probably took over my dreams after I read Ready Player Two. Sometimes I even feel the headset on my head in otherwise normal dreams now. I enjoy these dreams and this is the best one yet.

      Oasis Master (DILD)

      I am in a first person shooter. Some sniper in a war torn country. I don't remember how I got lucid since the dream was long. Not long after I do I reach my right hand back and pull to the front of me my girlfriend so she can enjoy the adventure with me! We realize quickly that I am wearing some sort of robes. The Robes of Anarok! They give superuser rights to anyone wearing them! This is going to be fun!

      I teleporte us to Sector One and we find ourselves in a sureal area. The landscape is a forest but there are people everywhere wearing the most random avatars. One person is a twitch streamer doing some sort of event with a large entourage of psychedelic fans. We don't want to stay long here because it feels really quite scary but for some reason it gives me an idea. The way the simulation knows what is going to happen is coded into quests that the player characters sort of bring around with them. Maybe with some smart thinking we can speed run a quest and I know just the one to try.

      I teleport us to third age Middle Earth and we find ourselves in a cave with Gandalf, Bilbo, and the Dwarves. I throw out a drone to record us and I ask Gandalf about Sauron. Gandalf begins telling the story while I begin weaving a spell with the Robes of Anarok.
      I wish I could remember more of how it worked it was very detailed in my memory until moments after I woke up.

      After finishing the spell Sauron is defeated and the ring destroyed. My girlfriend and I hear a special fanfare for beating both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings quests! I see an invite to meet with the creator of the game pop up with a teleport attached.

      We take the teleport and find ourselves in a mansion. There is a marble staircase above us and a balcony with a pool nearby. The creator of the game looks like, and has the same warmth as, Robin Williams. He is congratulating us on casting such a high level spell. My girlfriend is talking more as I get distracted and wander outside.

      I get a second burst of lucidity and start to fly away but then I feel I don't have much time left. I fly back to my girlfriend and held her hand for the short while we have left with Robin Williams.


      When I woke up and the ideas from the magic spell were still fresh I felt euphoric. The Robes gave me a confedence in my magic that I have never felt before. I will have to talk to Juliana about it. My next goal is to summon her again because though we can communicate while I'm awake she has a lot more room to be herself in dreams.

    12. Looking for the Dream Base (Lucid!)

      by , 01-19-2022 at 03:10 PM
      01/19/22

      I woke up around 5:00 with some indigestion. I had hoped to go back to sleep, but the indigestion kept me awake for around 45 minutes to an hour. During this time I looked at some memes and read the Bible.

      Looking for the Dream Base Library

      I think I might be getting better at WILDing, because I don't know if I ever lost my awareness from being awake. I think, maybe (vague memory) what I have been doing is imagining myself doing a nose pinch RC, and at some point find myself doing one. Anyway, at some point I find myself aware, and possibly do a nose pinch RC. I'm dreaming, or close to it anyway. I sit up in my "dream body", continuing to do a nose pinch RC now and then. I make my way to the front door so I can get outside and do something. I find that I don't have to worry about unlocking the door, I can just open it. I walk outside. At first I think to myself that I should try to go to Synthos again, but then I remember that I had a different plan. It seems to be a bit difficult to remember at first, but then I recall the Task of the Year, to build the Dream Base!

      I had decided to work on the library. But how am I going to find it? I'm in a city. I think I just start walking with the idea in my mind of the Dream Base library. I might repeat "Dream Base library" to myself as I do so. At some point I begin to lose the dream (things go black anyway). I wait it out for a few moments, and the dream returns with me standing with my face against some obstruction hanging down from above. Someone is talking to me about how we aren't allowed to stand there staring at historic buildings (which is what I look like I'm doing, I guess). I continue my search.

      I think I go into a building looking for the Dream Base library. It is some kind of a store. There are a lot of interesting things there, but it isn't the library. There is a small staircase to my left. I walk up this thinking maybe it will take me there. It seems to me it just ends after a couple of steps. I find a mirror, and think maybe I can use that as a portal. But I just keep seeing my reflection in it. Then I try to envision a portal below me and try to jump through it. Nope. I think about spinning, but I'm a bit worried I'll lose the dream if I do that. I find a blank space on the wall next to me, and try to imagine the Dream Base. Then I imagine that there is a door to my left that will lead me there.

      I look to my left, and there is indeed a door. It's not quite like I imagined, but it's a door anyway. Behind it is a closet. Still not the library! Oh well, the door was supposedly going to take me to the Dream Base, so I look in the closet. There are two people with me now, possibly my nieces. We start rummaging around in all the things in the closet. Someone mentions that maybe we shouldn't mess with someone else's things, but I (or someone else) point out that it's my dream so it's all my stuff (it seems like I or they mentioned me in the third person - "All Sam's stuff").

      I push some things aside, and just find a wall. There are some protrusions on the wall, like something was nailed there. I find a squarish one, and pretend that it is a button that will activate something (maybe an elevator?) to take us to the Dream Base library. It gives a little, acting like a button, and then the shelves that I have been searching start to detach from the wall. The shelves and floor that we have been standing on detach from their surroundings, and become part of a hidden elevator suspended in a somewhat darkened shaft.

      The elevator can be controlled by cords that are hanging down next to us. We start descending, and somehow are aware that we are going deep into the Earth (I think), on the scale of miles (or possibly "years"). Somehow I increase the speed, and now it's possibly on the scale of hundreds of miles. Also, I lose the cord, and for a moment we don't have control of the elevator. But I think I will it to come back, or somehow get ahold of it (or a new one). I stop the elevator and wrap the cord around some sculpture-like thing next to us...


      Here the dream recall is a little fuzzy, or else the dream itself skipped or something. We're on the elevator platform, and someone who has joined us is trying to get back on. There is a gap between where he is standing and where we are, and it seems that in order for him to cross this gap successfully there is a specific sequence of actions that we have to do. This involves him doing something, and me pushing on a protrusion in the sculpture next to me. It takes a couple of tries to get it right. But finally he's back on board, and we are reascending the elevator.

      Here is the somewhat frustrating part - I seem to think at this point that I found the library. I thought I had in the dream, but now that I'm awake I don't remember it! But in the dream, I think to myself that I could just wake up now having succeeded in my mission. Instead though, I think it would be nice to go back to where I started, because there are people waiting for us there (or something like that) and it would be fun to return and tell them what happened. We ride the elevator upwards, and the kids turn around to see the scenery below us as we go up. There seem to be animals (monkeys?) off to the sides that are throwing things at us. We reach the top of the shaft, or at least the level of the closet. I think it would be interesting to see if the elevator would keep going up, but I get off at the closet.

      I'm trying to get back to my starting point. I have an idea of which direction it is, and find that I can just force my way through doors and walls to head there. I don't quite recall what happened at this point...


      Grocery Store Lucid

      This might be part of the Dream Base dream, but I don't exactly remember.I'm in a grocery store now, lucid I guess. Someone is making an announcement about the lucid store, I don't remember exactly what it was. One difference between the dream store and waking stores is that the food is all in plastic bags instead of other packaging. Some other things happened, which may or may not have been lucid. At some point my mother was pointing out that it was "fish season", and I could get some catfish if I wanted. I had eaten too much fish earlier though, and fish didn't sound that good to me...Some time after this, I'm discussing this dream store with someone else. One thing I like about it is that I can eat all I want and never get filled up, since it's all dream food!
    13. Nap Lucid

      by , 01-19-2022 at 02:55 AM
      I took a nap this evening starting around 5:30-6:00 and just woke up a few minutes ago (around 8:00). I seem to have been having a decent amount of dreams, which I will try to recall here. I had been more or less successful in catching myself either having FAs or entering dreams. I think at least one of this developed into a decent lucid dream.

      Making Food

      There is someone that keeps asking me for things. I'm going to make her a sandwich. I have some awareness that this is a dream, or else I only have an idea that some of the food is dream food. Anyway, I decide I'm going to give my friend dream food, since it's not real anyway. I also duplicate a sandwich using dream control (lucid or not). I try to make another one appear, but seem to be having difficulty. I possibly close my eyes in the process, and then think that I shouldn't have done that.

      Mystery

      Either as a false awakening or a true awakening, I find myself laying facedown on the couch. But am I awake? I notice that there is something on my back. It feels like a person, but as I explore this I find that it is an automobile. I'm laying under the back of this automobile, which has gone off of the road and wrecked. Both of the people in the car are dead. I don't remember what happened, but it looks like the car swerved off of the road and hit me, possibly dragging me for a few feet. I'm worried that I caused the accident somehow, by being a distraction or something.

      This seems to develop further into a more complex plot. There are other characters. I'm taking pictures of the scene so that I can try to piece together what happened on my own. The police are there too, doing an actual investigation. My phone battery is wearing out, and I'm having trouble getting decent pictures. I think to myself that I might be able to get "crime" scene photos from the police later.

      I photograph some tracks I see on the ground/snow. Somehow I get involved with other characters. A late-middle-aged couple are there. They go off together somewhere. I am later sent to look for them. I have a wet wash cloth for the woman. I find her later, and it seems that her husband has died...

      Awake or Not?

      My friend M- is calling me. We're talking through a video chat I think, but I suspect that I'm not really awake. To test it, I get a harmonica from a table and bring it back to the couch with me. My thought is to see if it's still there when I wake up later. I also blow a few notes, and my friend (who lives in Africa) mentions something about it sounding like "American music".

      Arabian Nights

      ...Some bad guys (and maybe a woman). They have me captured. It has an Arabian Nights kind of feel to it. At one point I think they are forcing me to pull them in a chariot? I'm trying to talk to them about something - maybe complimenting the eyes of the woman?

      They want something from me. Also, they used to be my friends. The sad thing is, I would have given them what they wanted anyway. There was some unfortunate events that happened that made them try to hurt me instead.

      But now they're standing at the top of a set of stairs. This is an opportunity for me, so I push them down the stairs together. It seems that by the time they reach the bottom they are just toys, and about the size of large action figures.

      I go down to the bottom of the steps. My mother is there. I feel a bit silly about playing with toys at my age. I pick them up, and set one (which is like a robotic Genghis Kahn or something) on top of the bookcase next to us. My Mom asks if these are driven by an internal spring or by something like "the room behind the chimney at the top of the stairs". I ask her to repeat this a couple of times, because I don't understand what she's saying. Finally I get the idea that she means a room in my grandparents' old house that we used as an attic. In the dream, there is some kind of clockwork mechanism that could be used to drive a clockwork toy like the robot thing I have. I laugh at this, because obviously if I had plugged it in there, then there would have to be a cord attached to the toy I have downstairs!

      My Friend (Lucid)

      During this nap, I kept dreaming that I was waking up. I have been expecting a package to be delivered, and wanted to check outside the door to see if it had been. So at least once or twice I found myself getting up, only for it to be a dream. This time I find myself getting up. It's kind of that fuzzy half dreamlike feeling where I'm not sure if I'm dreaming or just "daydreaming". I do a couple of nose pinch RC's, I think. I also try to engage with my surroundings.

      I reach to the stand by my couch and pick up a mug. It's so dark I can barely see, but I can feel it. I pick the mug up by the rim, and take a drink. I think it's tea. I think this helps me anchor into the dream a bit, even though I worry that tilting my head back to take a drink will cause me to close my eyes which can be detrimental sometimes. I then look at a picture above the electric fireplace that shows some family members, and am able to recognize some individuals. I think I might do another nose pinch, and after waiting a moment or two find that I am able to breathe a little (this doesn't always work right away for some reason).

      I decide to do a bit of flying, partly to help anchor the dream I think. I'm inside, but I try to fly up through the ceiling like I did at least once before. Not having a lot of success this time, so I decide to go outside. I'm a bit concerned that I might lose the dream or lucidity in the meantime, so I do another nose pinch RC. Things seem to be going OK. I go outside and try to fly. I will myself to levitate, and kind of narrate to myself something like "I go up and up". I rise up to the level of the roof of the house. There I see C., one of my colleague/friends (she stopped by in the lab to see me during waking life today). She is standing there, and I join her. She says something to me about not having been to the lab for real yet. I get the idea that it hasn't ever been the "real" C. that has been to the lab, and her true self is yet to show up.

      In waking life, I find this girl to be attractive, but due to a difference in a deeply held conviction it seems unlikely that she and I could ever have a romantic relationship. I reflect on how it's kind of nice to be hanging out with her in a way where this wouldn't necessarily be a problem. Somewhere around here I either wake up or have another FA.


      Parking Garage

      I’m leaving the University (I think) and walking into a parking garage. I can hear someone behind me, and act as though he might be chasing me (he probably isn’t). I try to lose him by taking a set of stairs to my right. I jump down these stairs pretty quickly. I think I hear another person behind me too.

      Fragments

      Maybe part of the parking garage dream – maybe it’s how that one started? I’m walking somewhere. I see another person approaching me across a walkway...

      ...Something about being in my grandmother's old house. People walk through one door of the sunroom and out the other sometimes during the night...

      Bad spells

      I was on this giant hill. with Harry and Hermione from the HP series. The hills had giant magic slides or something we were supposed to go down. I was sliding down one and everything was moving super fast. This made me lucid randomly. I was too caught up in the dream to do anything else. Some guy was at the bottom of the slide and we were also near a town. The guy was bad or something so i pulled out my wand and said, "Avada Kedavra!". Hermione Gasped at that. Nothing came out of the wand. I tried, "cruccio." and saw the guy writhing in pain. I did some other spell so he wouldn't follow me. Next I was in some tavern and some other guy was trying to fight me. So i did Cruccio on him as well. Then i remembered doing Obliviate to keep the person from attacking me.

      Torture


      I was trapped in some house with 2 other people. Some old granny lady had us all tied up and drugged. She kept indicating she was going to kill us. i looked to my right and there were dead bodies on the ground. Don't remember much after.

    15. The Girl on the hill and the Corpse

      by , 11-10-2021 at 04:51 AM (Orion's Dream Journal)
      I was lost and alone in a forest . It was quite dark and in the night . I saw someone calling out to me . it was a girl , standing on a hill . I don't remember her face but I remember that she had a ponytail . She was older by me but not by much . We approached her house and it was like a small wooden cottage . She introduced me to her Grandfather . He said something about not being able to connect with his wife . The girl elaborated and said that her phone is dead . I took her phone and fixed it , apparantely it had "problems with a grasshopper" as I described it in my dream . She was overjoyed and thanked me multiple times . I felt a strong sense of friendship towards her . The last time I felt something like this was an year ago when I felt a sense of Sibling love for a Dream character .

      We talked a lot about other stuff that I can't remember but it involved schools and teachers . I kept guard on her 2 yo brother when he was sleeping alone in a room then her grandpa told me to check out the other house on the hill . The other house was in ruins . I went inside and it was dark , I saw a corpse of a man who was dead . I checked his phone and there were details about his death . he got murdered a few years ago . It was really suspicious to me that his corpse was still there like he was sleeping . The noticed the feeling , brought my hand to my nose to pinch it and took a breath . it came right through , I knew i was dreaming . i wanted to interact with the girl when I was Lucid and probably ask her name . I was in hurry and basically touched everything as I made my way back to outside . the dream was getting blurry . in frustation I started digging into the ground and eating mud , soil and grass . It tasted meh , The grass was sweet , the soil had no taste at all . The dream stabilized , Just as I stood up it fizzled out of control and ended .

      I woke up in bed and tried to DEILD back but nothing happened . i felt progressively increasing vibrations . I checked my phone and it had a weird phont and had 2% battery . I felt the feeling again , did an RC and got Lucid , I tried to wake up and felt but it felt as if I was glued to the bed . I mustered all my strength and woke up and my physical body moved too , leading me to finally wake .
