    1. Shared Dreaming Dream. non lucid

      by , 06-19-2015 at 07:26 PM (Zödra)
      semi-lucid with miau
      I had a dream that I was in our world, but DV was a super popular place and we all met all the time. happy sad times. I then got a message from someone on DV saying that it is happening at there house tonight. YAY Shared dreaming attempt. I end up at Miau's house and no one else shows up. She says that everyone else is going to be next door and we will all be trying to SD. There is simply not enough room in her house and her dad only okayed one LDer to spend the night. We go up to her room and talk about LDing a bit and get on the chat. Chat is just filled with people, including the people next door (Next door was actually Dreamer and Canis and they were on chat). We all decide that it is time to sleep, and because this is something that we all do all the time, it isn't this super exciting thing that makes us all have trouble sleeping. Also, me and miau sleep in the same bed, looking back on it, it seems weird, but in dream it seemed normal. We all four meet and we are at a darker version of this world and are hanging out in some back alley... We all knew we were dreaming, but this part is pretty hazy I know that we ate and we showed eachother some powers. I wake up and me and miau start talking about the dream and decide to write it down. I have to leave shortly after writing and I wake up.

      had a couple fragments, but nothing special.
      During WBTB:
      I decide to watch The Matrix Revolutions and watch about half of it during my last WBTB of the night. I then am pretty tired and not sure if I can sleep. I close my eyes and the room is spinning.
      WILD transition:
      My thoughts pretty much go like "I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, HOLY CRAP I AM DREAMING!" and I jump into the dream too soon. I don't have and stability before stopping my character. I let him go and it stabilizes. I jump into the air and I have no control. I am jumping in and out of buildings, the ground, the clouds, and people. I try to stabilize while slipping off of the world, but I have no luck and wake up after about 3 minutes of that.

      I then had another dream that I was playing YuGiOh! and this video game based on Rurouni Kenshin and Dragons!!! It was awesome, but then I beat the first level and it wouldn't download the second level even though I bought it. I was unhappy.

    2. [Long and detailed lucid!] Desert jumping, wife summoning and weird dream character antics

      by , 05-01-2015 at 12:52 AM (The Erratic dreams of StaySharp)
      This must be the longest and most stable lucid I ever had! Not just that, it's the 3rd lucid in a row! I'm really hyped and pumped up about that as I really seem to be getting my old strengths back.

      I'm not quite sure where and how exactly it started but the first thing I remember was in the desert.
      I lucidly observed a guy meeting his father in some kind of shop and the father looked in utter surprise, and that surprise was utterly and ridiculously emphasized by the fathers face and eyes constantly expanding and morphing. The guy was called something like Abbot I think, and the father was called Akbarra or Akharra I think. Not really sure but all the names start with an A at least. The village I was in was called Aldiba, I'm a bit more sure about that at least.
      (The names were likely inspired by the system names of Space Rangers HD)

      Then I was outside, still observing in 3rd person. The story now revolved about a man and his wife, who were sentenced to death by starvation. They both were bound to small walls, and the were covered by a rugged piece of cloth, like half a tent, preventing anyone in the village to see them and vice versa. However the man had his brain and with that his essence/soul/whatever implanted into another person, that was also visibly shown by the person at one of the walls having an opened head and no brain inside.
      (Mind you the scene was not gory, the art style was... unique, hard to describe. There was no blood and a much more purple color to the bodies.)
      His wife however died without being rescued, and he only managed to extract her brain and took it with him. The dream did not state whether it was possible to revive her from that, so for all I know maybe it would've been possible in that dream land.

      At this point I took on the perspective of that dude, albeit the actual plot the dream followed so far was pretty much dismissed. The new body was behind the wall the man was chained to, and I had to get away from the village (Aldiba). Behind the walls the desert started, so getting away was only a matter of 200m or so without being seen. The village seemed mostly empty, however there was a wandering merchant entering the village from the left but I managed to get away unseen. At this point I jumped my way through the desert, with the jumps almost being equal to flying. There were a bunch of annoying black dogs all around who intended to attack me when I came close. The first one followed me but I jumped down a steep cliff, being rather sure that the dog would very much dislike the impact, unlike me who didn't care in the dream. Not completely sure if it followed me but I think it tried, and then stopped following for obvious reasons. I think at this point a saw a forest bordering the desert to my left.
      The next dog that tried to attack my felt my annoyance through a sand fountain propelling it very high in the air, for a certainly more than just unpleasant impact. The 2 or 3 next ones got the same treatment, albeit the fountains I called then were not as strong.
      Then there was a lost dog trying to attack me. I jumped up and raised the sand along a bit, essentially burying the dog. Now I was standing on the border to a new territory. There was fertile earth and a few plants here and there. I felt the dream fading but stabilized by taking in all the details of my surroundings, mainly by moving further, watching the plants and loudly wording the details I saw. Eventually I think a reached a point where the earth kind of was on the roofs of buildings, a rather weird but interesting sight.

      I went into a building at some point and here a lot of stuff happened of which I'm not completely certain in which order it happened.

      I was in a staircase, and there was an elevator door, it was a normal single metal door which a big piece of glass allowing to look through. It looked somewhat dark and sinister. I considered breaking in and using the elevator or the shaft to get around but decided against it.
      I'll describe the staircase structure from the point standing in front of the door. In front of me is the elevator, directly left to that were stairs leading down, directly right of the elevator were stairs leading up. 90° right and left from me were hallways to the rest of the building I think.

      I was on a in between level and there were a bunch of dream characters. For some weird reason I thought about turning that place into a living space which... didn't make very much sense.

      Eventually on that level I decided trying to summon my wife for shared dreaming. The dream actually gave me an interface, listing her artist name. The interface obstructed like 80% of my view. I looked at it and eventually found a summon button on the far left. After clicking it a piece of color was gone from the button, stuck to my finger as a small piece of paper. I consciously took notice that the dream basically giving me an interface made out of paper, which I found funny and interesting. As nothing happened yet I clicked the button again. Eventually she was summoned in a very fiery and somewhat flaming form, albeit the dream/my subconscious/something realized that it was not possible to actuall drag her into the dream and the avatar was replaced with... Samus Aran in her Varia Suit, albeit a somewhat more gray variant. I followed her, instinctively knowing though that I didn't manage to summon my wife. We ran past a bunch of people and my mother, or at least her voice asked me about the severe injuries of someone. That someone had his butt injured (butthurt pun? I wasn't butthurt myself though so no clue what or who...) but I didn't particularly care and responded that I knew about it, but didn't care, not intend on getting dragged into the pace of the dream characters and their weird antics. Eventually though the dream faded and this time I couldn't stabilize it again.

      However it felt like a good 30-40 minutes of lucidity all in all, which is amazingly awesome.

      3 days in a row I sleep with Chakra aligned minerals beside my bed, and 3 days in a row do I get lucid. Did the minerals help? I have a healthy amount of skepticism, but the results really speak for them self and the speak is more than just a bit statistically significant. Whether they 'purify my energy' or just cause a positive psychological reaction, I'll believe in the positive results.
    3. 1985

      by , 04-09-2014 at 02:23 PM
      Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

      Lucid #199: 1985

      I’m hanging out with my friends “Leroy”, “Captain Kirk”, and “R” in a hotel room. I’m explaining to them that if we all think of the same time period at once, we’ll begin a shared dream that transports us to that time.

      “Think of 1985!” I cry excitedly. Everyone gets a look of concentration on their faces and
      I become lucid as a “shared dream” of 1985 begins.

      I spy a bin full of socks nearby. “Everyone wear their socks like they did in 1985!” I say, and everyone grabs a pair of long socks and pulls them all the way up. (I don’t think people really wore their socks this way in 1985, but oh well.)

      I yank my socks up to knee height. “It’s hip to be square,” I say, and the DCs laugh at my awkward 80s reference. For some reason I think this is hilarious, and Hip to Be Square starts playing faintly in the background. (Not released until 1986! )

      We walk outside of the hotel room to a nighttime scene at a gas station. “Captain Kirk” points toward a nearby Bronco at a refueling station and says, “We need to put some gas in the car.” We all walk over there and he starts filling up the tank. (I don’t recall him paying in advance with a credit card.)

      Leroy suddenly looks worried and says, “We lost [The Schwartz]!” (“The Schwartz” is another friend who hasn’t yet appeared in this scene.) I have a false memory of The Schwartz being in our group earlier and think we’ve lost him. I know that the disappearance of a DC isn’t anything to get worried about, but I agree that we should look for him.

      There’s a brick building nearby. Leroy and I enter it through a metal doorway and we wind up in a huge room that’s clearly bigger than the building itself. It looks like some kind of trap-filled dungeon, complete with a large pit of bloody spikes and stone walls lined with torches. On a ledge maybe fifteen feet above, we see The Schwartz gripping a rope and preparing to swing across the pit like Tarzan.

      I’m still aware that this is a dream, but I’m not sure that I want to see how this plays out. Leroy and I implore the Schwartz to come down from the ledge and not go swinging over a pit of dream-spikes. Noticing us for the first time, he waves down to us.
      The dream ends shortly after.
    4. Fake shared dreaming experience

      by , 12-29-2013 at 07:37 PM (My smashed up joy ride of dreaming)
      I was done with most of a test when it asked why some random video game character didn't use both hands to lift heavy objects. most everyone was chatting about how he had superpowers when I remembered he was born in a superpower family, no superpowers for himself. About two seconds away from the time limit I remember the answer: he never puts his weapon away. Then my History teacher said "the final answer was Weapon"

      (waking)Earlier in the month I had this:
      I somehow plugged myself into a magical program that ran off of my computer that let me plug into a shared dreaming server. The hub room was made out out birch wood planks straight out of the default Minecraft resource pack. It started out in a crowded square room with slabbed off windows also very Minecrafty. It apperared people could buy classes from a shop run by my friend. So I bought the exploration class.It was a buetiful network. There were stairs from the entrance foyer to four warp points. I went into the purple one first. It was a zombie infested carnival with a purple path along which my group and I walked through. I knew but knew not how I knew there was a Captain America shield. Now here is where all the video games enter my dreams. I had the Captain America shield (okay that's a movie but I think there is a game for that, but I have not seem more than two seconds of gameplay) that I used to easily block the attacks coming from a blob monster out of Epic Mickey and counter with my Wolverine claws. Oh and the Captain America shield popped up in my square-divided bar that looks like it came out of Minecraft as well after I noticed a white box showing me the shield and naming it. That design also happens to come from a game. I won the fight but my avatar was a bit tired so the whole crew headed back. actually now that I think I magically just took another warp without thinking about it magically The next level was controlled with a 360 controller where you press the back button to stop moving along a predetermined path. It felt ripped straight out of a storybook sonic level. Wow another game. The controls were absolute shit on cheese filled buttermilk buiscuits. Yeah I thought another game (review) reference could be fun. Anyways after slogging through that mess I entered my own house which just happened to be a level. I went upstairs and saved a supposedly-super-evil demon. Anyways he was actually quite nice for a second. He then told me to "run from the beam," so I did. I got out of my corridor which was twice as long as it normally is.I asked
      "What happened?" to my friend running the class station
      so we both flew up to the hub which was warp-able via the ceiling of a bathroom in my house. I started wondering when I would wake up and had trouble putting the thought away.
      My dreams usually last about five minutes and this one lasted half of an hour. I started getting worried if I looked like a video game character but nobody paid attention to me so I assumed I was fine. Then I saw a white light fill the middle of my vision and wake.
    5. Meeting at the tree shared dream attempts and meeting a random guy!

      by , 12-01-2013 at 08:42 PM (Floatinghead's dream adventures)
      meeting at the tree wtf!?

      I go straight into a WILD, I plan on meeting my daughter at the tree and leave the house straight away, she comes with me from the house, but, nope, this is not her - her face is not her, it's a dc. DC's are always shifting from one form to another. It is getting easier to tell the difference between a DC and a real person (YES!!) As I reach the tree I wake up. urgh

      I go straight back into a dream and head for the tree again, this time from a different location. Again, just before I arrive (it is like a second away) I wake up. F**k!

      Really annoyed I am determined to get to the tree, so I go back under and head to the tree. AGAIN. As I reach the tree I realize that my daughter is not there, she has not been here for any of these times, I just know it. But, even if she is not here why can't I still not get to the tree? I start to faze out, NO!, I grip onto the dream rubbing my hands together, I stay in the black void for a few seconds but cannot help it and wake.

      As I wake up I think about why it is I cannot go to the tree, over the last few weeks she has been adding new additions to the tree and I have been contributing less and less. I think the tree has now completely gone over to HER dreaming, and it only is around, or accessible when she visits it.
      When I talk to her she confirms what I already suspected - she could not go to the tree that night!

      Unexpected encounter

      I give up trying to find my daughter and instead go with the intent to find flowmysoul, although when in the dream I am a little confused and start to try to find Raven instead. I start to form a portal but my powers are not working correctly. urgh. I wonder how I am supposed to find her when I have so little control at this time.
      **time missing**
      I am talking with someone, a dc - I tell him to make a portal for me. Nomad is with me, or a dc of Nomad, not sure. As he starts to talk to me I can see he is not a dc. wow, that's embarrassing!
      'Sorry about that mate, I didn't realise you were a real person!'
      As I look at him at I take note of his appearance. solid, not shakey or morphing. He is medium height, quite chunky (though by all means not fat, just a little overweight) his hair is dark short and wavy.
      'I walk around the dreams allot, in and out - all over the dreaming - though I don't usually like to create portals as they create too much unwanted attention'
      Wow, this is the first I have heard of this.
      'the first thing we need to do is create a symbol to use as the source of power for the portal to appear from' He takes out a sheet of paper and starts to sketch a chinese style Dragon onto it. This then appears on Nomads arm. 'I have used features of his arm and incorporated them into the tattoo design' At this he indicates a large mole on Nomad's right arm which he has used as a more prominent scale on the dragon. I am amazed at this whole explanation and that I have randomly came across another dreamer. I wonder how he sees me and Nomad, and if he sees me as real dreamer and Nomad as a dc
      'what do you see when you look at us? Do you think we are both real dreamers?'
      I feel myself drifting and think I will probably wake soon. Need to hurry. I stop him before he can answer.
      'can you create the portal now instead? I think I will wake up in a moment' I really want to see his technique through to the end.
      But no, I am forced awake.

      Who was this guy?
    6. 1st Shared dream lesson, a dream within a dream, training a dream character. (old dream) 03/05/11/

      Green means notes

      You know the drill. As always, enjoy!

      Dream #1 Walking down the highway.

      Im walking down a highway on the sidewalk, a bunch of cars are passing me by. I noticed a billboard with a list of movies. (i forgot the list of movies that were listed)

      Dream #2 Paper or plastic?

      Im now in a supermarket,with this elderly russian man. He looked to be in his 40's or 50's. I was helping him shop for things such as Pickles, eggs, bread, milk, and prunes. The casier looks at us and says...paper or plastic? Plastic (i say)

      Dream #3 Dream cue from the Hawk.

      Im riding a motorcycle (don't have one in real life) holding a yellow flag racing against other people. (im guessing we had to set the flag down at some random location) I hear a high pitch whistle and look up at the sky, ITS A HAWK! I stop in the middle of the road and i noticed, im all alone. I look up at this sign, posted on a billboard it read...(FOR LET HE WHO HAS EYES SEE, AND LET HE WHO HAS EARS HEAR. MY CALL WILL AWAKEN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO SEEK THE TRUTH) Hmm..I reach in my pocket and pull out my totem. I look around how did i get here? what did i do a hour ago??? Ah, im asleep in my bed right now! Im rubbing my totem, the dream snaps in focus. Im focused, i put it back in my pocket and decide its time to have some fun.

      Having fun with mirrors.

      I take my finger, and make a mirror in the air in front of me. i turn around for 5 seconds and say when i turn around, i expect to see my female subconscious self. When i turned back around, it was a huge square shaped mirror. I noticed that i am no longer a male, but i am now in fact, my female counterpart. I am still my complexion, caramel skin, i have long curly hair, full lips, a slight slant to my eyes, my eyes are bigger and more of a hazel colour. With C cup breast and a bit of a curvy waist, i am now wearing a pink dress and black strappy sandals, a toe ring with a french pedicure on my feet. I look very beautiful i say to myself. I now summon a purse to put my totem inside, just in case i need to stabilize the dream a bit more. I dive thru the mirror and end up at some bar.

      Dream #4 Heads or tails? Pick one.

      I walk into a bar. This bikerman looks at me, i give him a dirty look. I walk up to the bar ask for a glass of wine. I spot my cousin drinking at the bar, i get up and walk over to him. Mind if i join you? Sure. Whats your name? (I try and change the subject) Don't you know who i am? Uh...nope sorry you don't look familiar. I tell him, what if i told you that with one flip of a coin, i can snap your mind into a different world. I would say you been drinking a lil bit too much of that wine baby. (I reach in my purse) I pull out my hawk coin totem. Heads? or tails? (i ask him) Lol tellin you girl that alcohol getting to yo head. I will say this one more time. Heads? or tails? Aight aight i'll play along. Heads. I flip it in the air and catch it, then look at it and show him. It landed tails. Hey wait a min...why am i in a bar? Come with me. ( i take my glass of wine with me) I take him in the mens bathroom. I sat my purse on the sink. Do you know why we are in here? Uh...no. Why are we in here? Because it is time for you to go to sleep. Huh? I slipped something in your drink while you were looking at my coin. In exactly 1 min, you will be passed out. and when you wake back up, i will explain it to you in another form got it? Wha what? WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME!? Relax. you about to go into a different layer with me. (He passes out on the floor) I look in my purse and take this white pill and drink my wine. I look in my purse to find my celphone and set my beethoven music to go off in 60 mins I set it on the bathroom sink and fall backwards to the floor.

      Dream #4 A dream within a dream.

      I now wake up in my 2nd home. I look around for my cousin r. R, you in here??? I walk into the bathroom and say alright when i stick my arm thru this mirror, im gonna pull out my cousin r. I take my right arm and stick it thru the mirror and pull my cousin thru it. I just had a dream that some girl with curly hair was talking to me at a bar, and..showed you this? (I hold the coin up) Yea, just like that. Wait min..how did i just get here? Because i pulled you here, and this is still a dream by the way. Whoa whoa whoa, what do you mean still a dream? Like i said your still dreaming. Na man, thats impossible! Tell me then, why are we standing here at my old house then, instead of my current house hm? I i..i don't know. C'mon, its time for your 1st lesson. Here (i hand him my totem) Look at it. Now when you wake up in the real world, im gonna test you to see if you will remember how it looked. Stare at it until It is imprinted in you brain. Yo, im dreaming!? I nod my head. Relax though..because you are getting overly excited. I can't believe im dreaming!!! (He starts fading away) I knew that was gonna happen. (I fall backwards)

      Final dream: Your just a projection of my subconscious.

      I wake up in the previous dream on the bathroom floor. I get up and notice, im my female projection of myself. I project back into my normal self and grab my celphone and notice i have 5 mins of lucid dreamtime remaining. I exit the bathroom and talk to random dream characters about their abilities One young boy says he can manipulate the weather. This one man said he can eat 500 slices of pizza. I then notice a interesting looking young lady who was attractive. I asked her what her abilities were, and that if she showed me something interesting, i would hire her for my next dream job. We were in a gas station, she was looking for some chips. I said you can do anything just make it unique ok? She nods. Oh, so your not much of a talker i see. well, what if i told you that your just a projection of my subconscious. I don't care. You mean you don't mind being created by me? No not at all. In fact im I want the job watch this. She begins telepathically moving everything around in the store. Not bad, not bad. (i say) Alright let me ask you a question. Ahem, whats the easiest way for me to become lucid in dreams? Pay attention to your surroundings. Oh and also try a start re entering your old homes, so you can remember how you got there in the 1st place too. And aslo if someone wants to fight you, that should increase your lucidity more. Thanx. Whats your name? Roselyn.

      Hmm..Roselyn. Ok, you got the job! (Right here i here my beethoven alarm goin off) I wake up and record the dream.

      Notes: Did wbtb at 5:30 am. I did my reality check with my totem for about 15 mins and headed back to bed. I woke from this dream at 7:45 am. could not fall back asleep cause of a job i had at that time. had to be there at 9:30 am. Oh and my cousin ended up remembering a dream of being in a bathroom with a woman with curly hair. hehe wonder if he knows that was me. Shapeshifted as her that whole time. Ah, me and my dreaming abilities.
    7. Walking on the Moon and an Interesting conversation

      by , 01-12-2012 at 01:59 AM (Burke's Nightly Escapades)
      I was sitting in my living room watching some T.V. with a girl who I seemed to be rather intimate with. We were sitting next to each other "cuddling" while watching something on T.V. After a couple minutes we headed up stairs for some reason and went into my room. Once inside we stood at the foot of my bed talking with each other. "So... do you want to?" I asked hesitantly. I could tell I was blushing a little bit. She just smiled at me and slightly nodded her head.

      At this point things started to get a little fishy. I walked into the other room for a second and thought to myself, "Wait a minute, that's my ex-girlfriend! We broke up last year!" It was true, I was with my ex with whom I was no longer with. I did a checked my hands real quick and my right hand had 6 fingers while my left hand was missing a pinky.
      My suspicions were correct, I was dreaming! Just to be safe I preformed a nose plug RC and it worked! I could breathe through me nose.

      Immediately the TotY popped into my head but I couldn't think of which one to do. I summoned a dart board with 8 spots for each task that wasn't done. I grabbed a dart from the dresser next to me, closed my eyes and threw it. It had landed on the '60s. Awesome, to the moon! Knowing that I had to beat Neil Armstrong down the ladder I couldn't just teleport to the moon, I had to go up with the space ship and everything. I snapped my fingers while picturing the rocket about to take off in Florida.

      In the blink of an eye I was standing in front of a massive space shuttle. It was even bigger in person! I started to walk over towards it when I heard "T-minus 10, 9..." I knew it was about to take off so I ran as fast as I could towards it. Right as I was about to get on the platform the rockets ignited and massive billow of smoke and fire came over me. It felt just like the last TotY dream. I immediately jumped up as high as I could and was out of the fire. I looked down at the space shuttle and aimed right for the window. I dove down feet first this time and crashed right through it into a small holding tank type room. There were 4 other people in the room with me. Neil, Buzz (Aldrin), the third guy nobody really cared about, and then there was one more. The pilot from my last lucid.

      WTF! I thought I had gotten rid of him! "Long time no see, eh Burke?" He said, sarcastic as always. "Well look who it is. I thought you left after the hindenburg dream." I said back, equally as sarcastic. "Now now, this is no place for fighting. We have a job to do." He sounded just like he did last time. "What do you mean we?" I asked. "Hey, we're one in the same, remember? Now be quiet, the shuttle's about to take off and we have to let these three do their jobs." "Hold on--" But before I could finish my sentence the shuttle lifted off from the ground with immense force, pushing me down to the floor (which was really the wall).

      I couldn't really breathe nor talk due to the force from the take off, but after about 10 seconds we were floating in space. "Wow, that was fast," I said. Normally these things took several minutes just to leave the atmosphere. "We'll be there in only a few minutes," The person whom I assume is Neil said. "Now, in order to see who goes first, I say we draw from a hat." "No, no, no, you'll cheat! You always cheat!" Buzz said. "I vote the new guy holds a number behind his back and we guess it." "Doesn't matter to me," I replied. "That sounds good," The third guy chimed in. This whole time the pilot from my last lucid just sat there, silently, staring out the window.

      "Alright, I'm thinking of a number between 1 and infinity. Neil, you go first." I said. "Umm, zero." He said. "You dumbass, zero isn't between 1 and infinity." Buzz chimed in. "It's my choice and I'll make it however I want." He replied. "Guys calm down, just pick a different number," the third guy said. "Oh, a wise guy, eh?" Neil said. At this point it escalated into a 3 stooges type fight where they kept smacking each other on the back of the head and poking each other's eyes. "Hey guys," the pilot said a little nervously. "Not now, we're in the middle of some--" Neil said, interrupted by a smack from Buzz. "Seriously, you might want to stop." He persisted, but they paid no attention to him. I looked out the window and noticed that the moon was coming up fast. Really fast.

      There were bits and pieces of arguement flying all over the place until finally a huge force knocked us all up against the ceiling. "What the hell was that!?" Neil demanded. "I warned you guys," the pilot said. I looked out the window and noticed we were on the surface of the moon, the shuttle still in one piece. "Me first!" "No, me!" "I called it, move out of my way!" They kept bickering even after crashed. "Hey! Idiots!" The piloted shouted. "You're not going anywhere unless you put your space suits on." After hearing this they all ran as fast as they could to the corner where the suits were kept. However, there were only two. One person was meant to stay back and moniter everything. They started fighting again, arguing over who should go out.

      Getting rather annoyed by this I snapped my fingers and summoned another space suit so they could all go out at once. The pilot then looked at me as if he was expecting something. I had no clue what he was thinking and just stared at him while the other were putting their suits on. *Snap!* "Oh! The TotY! Thanks man, you're the best!" I said. I had to beat Neil down, why would I help them out? I walked over to the door, opened it up and jumped right out. The others, who had just finished putting their space suits on, saw me get out and all sprinted towards the door to be the 2nd man out. If they weren't first, they sure as hell weren't going to be last.

      Once I stepped out I looked over my shoulder and saw the earth rotating slowly, just like in the pictures. The three astronauts got out and, once they finally shut up, looked up and around in amazement. "Wow... it's... beautiful..." One of them said. "Yep, quite the sight, isn't it?" I replied. "Hey buddy, how come you don't have a suit on, yet you're just fine out here?" One oft hem asked me. "Oh, umm. Well, you see..." I stuttered, trying not to tell them I was a dreamer for some reason. "Wait I know why. It's 'cause you're one of those alien thing-a-ma-jigs I've heard about!"

      Wait, what? He thought I was an alien? The pilot at this point burst out laughing, obviously humoured by the comment. "What's so funny?" I looked over at him. "Hey now, don't be asking obvious questions!" I was a little irritated, but knew to keep my cool around him after flipping out for a tiny little insult before. "Yeah yeah, I know... Say, isn't this where that one guy from the forum had a base or something?" "Oh, you mean Nomad and Raven, yeah, but I don't think it's open right now." He replied. "What do you mean by 'not open'?" "Don't worry about it. Now, shouldn't you try another TotY?"

      "I guess... but where are you getting at by saying 'don't worry about it'?" I asked. "Seriously, I said don't worry about it, yet here you are, worrying." He sounded a little annoyed, oh jeez . "Alright alright, I'm sorry." I tried convincing him. "No you aren't, don't try and lie to me." "I wasn't lying--" "Yes," he interrupted, "you are. Do you not learn anything? What did I say last time?" I thought for a second, "Umm... as I recall you said 'it's time you learn your place' and then proceeded to kill me." It was true, he did say that. "No you dumbass, about you, and me? Us?" "Umm... that we share the same-" then it hit me. We both share the same mind. He knew what I knew and what I meant.

      "Exactly. God, sometimes I swear I have to beat the sense into you!" He disappeared. Next thing I knew
      I woke up. Damnet, he woke me up again. He didn't even give me a chance

      Oh well, it's all in my head, right? *Braces for him to pop up out of nowhere and hit me* At least I got one of the tasks done.
    8. 16th Shared Dreaming Attempt - Joshdamighty

      by , 08-09-2011 at 12:30 AM (International Oneironaut Shared Dreaming Journal)
      Joshdamighty's Dream
      Started at home in my old house when I was in my early childhood. There were a lot of people over.
      After some socializing with the rediculous amount of people that were over at our house, I realized I was dreaming through my glasses. I don't know how but my glasses were fogged and I took them off and my vision stayed the same.
      Made stuff float to test dream control.
      I remember before trying to teleport I saw this odd mustached man with a monocle who was cuboidal shaped like minecraft.
      I tried to teleport countless times by spinning in a circle and using doors to get to the temple
      Finally a door worked and I was transported to a facility with space shuttles there (didn't count on that)
      I go and try to teleport again with all the doors but nothing works
      Then i find a room fool of mirrors and try those but still nothing.
      I then think maybe I can take a space shuttle
      I ask a dude how long until the launch he says 11 hours
      I then go to the terminal and can't find out how to get into a shuttle
      I then see this guy who tells me I shouldn't be there and I decide to try and teleport again and it works!
      I am teleported to the myan temple and then see lots of jungle around me.
      I finally see the temple and decide to fly up to it when I see the odd mustached man again
      He said your journey ends here.
      I fly around trying to dodge him who is now shooting fireballs at me.
      I fly behind a floating building (odd because there were many floating buildings above the temple including the tajma hall).
      He flew into the building and died and fell to the earth.
      I flew back to the temple and got to the top of it and looked all around and saw nobody. I laughed I was so happy I made it. I then started to realize my objective and started to light the beacon when I woke up.
    9. Winter Flight and Fragments for July 8 2011

      by , 07-09-2011 at 06:13 PM (Sailing the Noosphere)
      1. I forget under what circumstances it happens, but I do the nose pinch reality check and realize that I'm dreaming. I do the standard hand rub to stabilize, then see a window to the side of me. I have nothing better in mind, so I jump through it with ease and emerge on the other side into a winter scene. I start to fly and surge upwards through a cloud of snow. I realize that it's really rather cold, so I focus and summon a pair of gray wool pants. They appear in my hands with proper texture, and when I put them on they feel very soft and warm. I think about going into space, and as I look around I see a balloon ship. I fly over to it and fire up its engines, continuing to rise all the time. I try to change my clothes into a spacesuit, but I feel myself losing control...

      I false awaken, and emerge into a scene where my mom and I are baking, with flour strewn everywhere. I ask nonchalantly if she was in the previous dream, and she responds that she's skilled enough to manage her own control. I talk excitedly about the concept of shared dreaming, admitting that it's probably "metaphysical bullshit."

      2. I'm with some girl in a room that seems almost like a temple. Around a central altar, where we both are laying, are twelve pillars that correspond to the signs of the zodiac. She is initially very aggressive and defiant, but I calm her down and it seems like we go through a relationship in superfast motion with stages informed by zodiac signs.

      3. I'm playing a game of hide and seek (using parkour to maneuver) on the Havana map of Call of Duty. My team has my brother and a couple of professional wrestlers, while my mom's team has her old friends. I eventually manage to track their last team member down and deliver the tag in a room from my own house.
    10. Lucid Dream #40

      by , 06-14-2011 at 07:20 PM (Warbenifit156's Lucid Dreaming Adventures)
      Lucidity: 7/10
      Vividness 10/10
      Length: ~5 Min.

      I became lucid all of a sudden at the map Highrise from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 without doing a reality check. So I started walking towards the building to my right and jumped on top of it, there was another 10 floors so I jumped on those as well. When I found a door so I could try to find my friend Javier's mental dream body and attempt to make him lucid, I held on to the door knob and said "When I open this door Javier will be behind it!" and attempted to open it, when I did, it just opened up into the next room. So then I closed the door and rubbed my hands together to increase the dream time. But then for some reason I started to walk away from the door and I walked up some stairs, thinking it was real life.
    11. Lucid Dream #36

      by , 04-29-2011 at 11:01 AM (Warbenifit156's Lucid Dreaming Adventures)
      Lucidity: 8/10
      Vividness: 9/10
      Length: ~20 Min.

      I became lucid and started to talk to this girl, I wanted to have sex with her, but she said "no." She said that she was also lucid. I was very excited. Then, after that. I was holding a camera, walking around listening to other people's conversations. Then all of a sudden I was in a lab where they use a divice that makes you lucid dream. For some reason, some guy was upset that I was there. But let me proceed with the lucid dreaming thing anyways. Then I was walking in a large room with Zach. While we were I was thinking about my body for some reason while Zach was looking a bushes. Then I was vs. some guy, I believe it was Saskae from Naruto. I was slower than him, he was gaining speed each corner. I was suprised. Then I found out that I was in someone else's dream. Then I was trying to send a post card or something to myself. I didn't understand why. But some people wanted my flash drive for some reason. Then I was in a large building and someone grabbed my flash drive from me and started tearing it up. It contained information of lucid dreaming. Then I had the flash drive again for some reason and was blocking a door from somebody. Someone set up a timer for me so I would wake up. It said 17:03 and counting. I really wanted to wake up for some reason. I had a false awakening. I thought I was on my computer and was distributing the data from the flash drive onto the computer. I asked my dad if they could stop it and he said "no." It was about 70GB or more. But it worked, I could view pictures and videos as I'd like. But then I was dreaming again and desired some pussy. And for some reason I couldn't find a girl to fuck. Then I woke up. Trying to DEILD but I believe failed.
    12. Dream Graduation '(again) + Lucid Awakening + Fragments

      by , 04-11-2011 at 02:57 PM (the Dream Almanac)
      Dream Graduation

      I’m in school. Graduation is getting set up RIGHT NOW. Hallways are empty except me and a few other “left overs” who can’t graduate for whatever reason. I have a bottle of wine in my hand and start running and screaming: look at me! A cup manifests and I pour it, chugging the bottle and then the cup, bottle then the cup until I’m in the rotunda, drunk and everyone’s looking at me.

      I follow some other left overs through dusty abandoned hallways so Mrs. L doesn’t see us and find us out. We all have this plan to graduate anyway so we go way up into the theater storage attic and try our best to hide ourselves. Me under a big blanket with someone and I’m drunk and my eyesight is like that of when I’m so tired I can’t keep my lids awake. So for most of it I do have my eyes closed and just listen under a blanket stacked on top of theater props so I almost touch the ceiling.

      Someone tries to peep into the hallway and a little Asian girl who ate all her hair off (really) is the “hall monitor” for graduation sees that someone. She sends in this bulky girl, a real bully. She’s got a trick. She pulls the first kid she sees to her and licks that student’s lip, touches it and then taps her temple. She screams and falls down, not dead but just painful. She does another little trick to someone (pulls their lip ring over their nose!) and says she won’t tell Mrs. L. She’s gonna leave but first wants to show off another trick, looking for someone she pulls me over to her! No way, I hate pain (who doesn’t); she spins my chin into a tight spiral and every time I un-spin it a little, shit it hurts. But someone tells me there’s a trick to her trick and just un-spin it all at once: I do, and I feel just a little tug and I’m okay.

      A few of us go further into the attic and we find that there’s a desk and under the desk is nothing, it’s a free-fall to the ice arena where they graduate so you can watch the whole thing. They’re almost ready! A teacher, Mrs. Smith (4’7 or something small!) sees us peeping and comes marching over. We all run out of the attic, oh too late, and Mrs. L is standing waiting for us.

      She’s a lovely lady sometimes and says we can all graduate, so everyone puts their gowns on. I don’t have one. At the final door to the ice arena, its time to graduate, I don’t have a gown, but there’s a box with a white Freshman gown. I’m a sophomore in my dream (hey wait, why were all the different classes graduating instead of just the seniors!) and our color is green, so I’m a bit embarrassed. We walk out and I run over to Autumn so she can take my picture (it’s mandatory). When I get over to my class, they’re all wearing white and I’m the only one wearing green.

      Lucid Awakening

      I’m downtown, walking in a little drizzle. I plan on going to the community market to volunteer when I see a little nook between buildings with a candy store built in. It doesn’t have a door or a cashing machine, it’s just a bunch of glass jars with a ton of bright colored candy. I’m pretty delighted but wait! We don’t have a candy store downtown. And why is downtown so tiny? I’m lucid. I walk into the center of downtown (as I said, everything is tiny and compact, like 50 feet). I look around and notice:

      This feels real. This is REALITY to me. Everything is solid and I am perceiving it just as I do waking life.

      (This single lucid fragment has created something in me that has helped everything I've been doing dream-wise DRAMATICALLY. I understood before that dreams=reality while waking life=hazy and unreal while you're dreaming, but I never FELT and EXPERIENCED that completely. Now that I have, something has clicked. My reality checks take up to five minutes or more, not because I feel that more time is necessary or anything, but that's how long it takes me to discern my reality. REALITY has a new meaning. I become lucid more often (though write more in the hard copy of my dream journal, less on here). I thank my subconscious for letting me explore this feeling.)


      I make a sandwich for myself "when I wake up"- WHY WASN'T I LUCID?

      Autumn and I are being obnoxious in school, so Heather leaves without saying a word to me. Crushing.
      NOTE: Autumn told me today that she had a VERY SIMILAR dream, of her and I and Heather (who she has never met or talked to) all in a classroom.

    13. Halloween Party + potential shared dreaming

      by , 02-27-2011 at 03:32 PM (the Dream Almanac)
      Shared Dreaming

      Halloween Party

      Heather, Tyler and I live in my old house. It’s early morning, like three a.m. or so. Tyler and Heather decide to go outside for a walk and a little adventure. I am getting some layers on because it’s cold out but they’re already out the door. I yell at them and they don’t stop, so I have to run up to them to catch them.

      We are walking around and it seems to be Halloween. There are kids everywhere and a stop sign has a plastic decorative ghost-stop sign decal taped over it. I want to make the O of it into an eyeball, so I take a permanent marker out of my pocket and “grow” tall enough to vandalize it quickly. I can’t “ungrow” so I’m tall for a long time. (Heather dreamed that there was a person that was very tall all throughout her dream).

      We discuss which way to go and we think about downtown which in my dream-mind’s eye looked how it does when I dream of it, as if the area is semi-static on the dream plane.

      There is no transition that I remember, though both of these fragments "feel" as if they are part of the same dream.

      I am dumpster diving behind Tyler’s apartment with Marilyn Manson as a teenager. We go through one of the back doors of the restaurants that line the brick wall of dumpsters. On the other side is a big house party. I feel completely lost among Marilyn Manson fans and gothic kids. I walk around the place and the living room is Heather’s living room.

      Heather is laying on her couch taking up two spaces; Adam is sitting on the third space. I go over and lay on Heather, so relieved to have her here when I thought I was alone. She gets red and starts getting up, pushing me off of her. She’s embarrassed to be with me in front of Adam.

      I’m sick of that feeling so I walk into the kitchen and start eating cupcakes. Dylan, my ex-boyfriend is at the party. I decide to take revenge on Heather by telling him we can go out again. He is ecstatic, to a point where I am annoyed. It’s not worth it. The whole time I am at the party, he’s trying to say things to me to make me really love him again.

      I take him outside, where it’s still dark out (though hours have seemed to pass).

      “I can’t two-time Heather like that,” I say. I try to break up with him and it’s really difficult, only because I know that he will feel like shit after I do. I realize he’s in college and get weirded out for some reason, so it’s easier. I break up with him again and go back into the party.

      It’s mostly over, as if I had been gone for a long time and it’s now morning. Almost everyone’s gone. Marilyn Manson is yelling at his mom, and I give her a sympathetic glance. I “know” that he used to be nice to her but started to be mean as his persona grew.

      I walk over to the second living room (not Heather’s). There are giant seats that sink in a lot. I sit in one and find a gold key that Heather wears. Instantly, I know that Heather made out with Adam in this chair. I text her “found your key”, which will let her know that I know what she did. I’m upset.

      I look around the room. Everything is being picked up. A girl is throwing these giant cellophane carrots away. An extremely young version of my grandmother is picking up most of the trash and stuffing it in a trash bag.

      She gets really upset that the girl is throwing the carrots away and starts yelling at her because they are full of “goodies”. I remember that my grandmother is a highly spiritual person and wonder why she is getting so upset, losing her temper over a trivial thing. She goes into another room to clean up there.

      A few guys sitting around the breakfast table are talking about the newspaper mascot, Happy. It’s a black dog who is severely depressed.

      “Never try to make Happy happy. Everyone knows he’s sad so it’s insulting to him,” one of the guys says. He gives me a page of the newspaper. I held the paper out about a foot in front of me. An article had been strangely bolded and unbolded and when you can see all of the words, the boldness of the letters reveals a black ink dog made of words. His tail was the darkest part.
      I throw it into the trashbag. I see a few Jenny Lewis calendar posters, really quality black and white, thick paper. I start taking them out. A woman sitting in one of the deep comfy chairs starts talking to me about Waterville’s mascot, a parrot named Waterlou. (Heather had a dream about mascots.)

      My grandmother walks out of the room and smiles at me. I see that her temper was very in the moment and she was easily brought out of it.
    14. 1/11: Shirt, Shat, and a Stare

      by , 01-12-2011 at 02:50 AM (Alone With my Mind)
      Recolored (frag)
      My mom set down the folded clothes on my bed. My new T-shirt, which had originally had faded out logos, had been un-faded out and are now white. I ignored it and just put it away.

      Gross Garage (frag)
      I walked into the garage to get a soda and as I pulled it out of the fridge, I realized my dog, who had spent the night in the garage, had shat on the floor. I called my parents so they could clean it up.

      Look (lucid)
      After her lecture, my science teacher handed the class an indecipherable worksheet to do for homework. I asked my friend sitting next to me, "Hey, do you get this?" "Yeah." "Well, why can't I read it?" He shrugged. I walked out the class, but realized I just walked out of my MATH class, not my science class. And the worksheet wasn't legible because, well, it was a dream. I became lucid, and the worksheet became readable. It read on how to triangulate a location somewhere west of the school. I put it away in my backpack and walked toward that direction, maybe something was there. I noticed Justin, Rachel, and Nick were walking separately in the halls. They were all common characters in my dreams, so I decided to check to see if they were actually dreamers. I sent out a thought to Justin. 'Look at me. Now.' He suddenly turned and locked a hypnotized stare on me as I walked past him. I stopped looked around and he was gone. Rachel was in front of me, and I sent the same thought to her. Another creepy stare. I walked past her, and saw Nick resting by one of the classrooms. Yet another thought, but surprisingly no response.

      Just a thought back. 'Why? I'm gonna listen to my iPod.' He pulls out his headphones whiched looked a helluva a lot like mine. He didn't have an iPod, so I dismissed him as a DC too. I ran up one of the walls, dropped my backpack, and ejected my wings. I stood on the end of the building, ready to jump, when I noticed my science classmates arguing about where to go as directed by the worksheet. "Hey!" I yelled. Many turned to my direction, dumbfounded. I pointed somewhere to the west. "It's over there!" They all looked, and I jumped off and took flight toward that direction. I was now flying above a grassy hill. Below me I saw a mansion that had occured in a dream I previously had about three months ago. It was the EXACT same thing. I flew down to it and pulled in my wings, but I couldn't control my landing as well as I thought. I flew to fast and undershot the location of the ground, and I fell face first into the dirt, knocking me out.
    15. (12/20/10) - A Nightmare and a Shared Dream

      by , 12-20-2010 at 10:24 PM (LiveInTheDream's DJ v2.5)

      Well, I've kind of been absent from this DJ for a while again, but hopefully this time I'll really for real be coming back. I keep on saying I'm coming back but then stuff comes up, I know

      Anyway, last night I had a really vivid lucid dream, that, although not very epic, was rather interesting. For one thing, it's the first truly lucid dream I've had in a very long time...one where I actually stopped what I was doing and examined my environment, amazed at how realistic it was, but fully aware that it was all completely non-existent.

      The dream began as a nightmare-ish experience. I was in my house, but everything was darker than is natural for just being night-time. I could hear screams and the sounds of what I knew would be hideous-looking beasts in the distance. Watching. Waiting. For me.

      But then I looked down, and saw that I was not myself, either. I was one such creature, with leathery, tar-black skin, and a voice that mutated and sounded creepy when I spoke. Instantly I realized it was all just a dream, and I decided I would get the heck out of there before something attacked and woke me up. Besides, I didn't like being an ugly monster anyway . I walked up to the nearest wall and tried to phase through it. Having been a while since my last lucid dream, I didn't immediately have enough sense of dream control to move through, but eventually I managed to force my way through the wall and out to the other side, where I suddenly was caught up into a vortex and sucked away from the house into pitch blackness.

      I wasn't waking up, however, and I knew it. I was simply moving to another, better place in the dream world. I watched as the leathery black skin peeled away, revealing my 'real' self beneath. My voice returned to normal as well. Next thing I know, I'm falling into a large gray box of a building, and it was basically empty to begin with. I tried creating a few things in it, but I was frustrated to find that I could barely control anything. Whatever I changed would erase itself and just fade away to the way it was before.

      "What's going on here?" I asked myself.

      My answer was approaching fast...literally. My sister flew up overhead, creating things to fill in the space around her as she went.

      "Oh great!" I called out. "How'd I end up in your dream?"

      She just laughed and kept on flying.

      "I don't know, but have fun!"

      I shook my head and began to fly off, wishing I had a totem like the one in Inception that I could use in other people's dreams. All of a sudden, though, I fell to the ground.

      "What was that?" I asked my sister, who was still flying around.

      "I just made a rule." She said. "To fly in my dream, you have to be in a sitting position."

      "That's stupid! Why'd you do that?"

      "If you're going to be in my dream, I might as well have fun with you."

      "Yeah. Real funny."

      I flew off (in a sitting position) and basically just explored the area and talked to the DC's in my sister's dream. It was interesting to carry on a conversation with DC's that weren't from my own subconscious. They spoke very differently than I'm used to having DC's speak, and often didn't make any sense to me at all.

      In spite of minor annoyances it was an enjoyable night, overall. Plus I think I've got something going with MILD now, so hopefully my lucids should return to being much more frequent.
