    1. A WILD ride!

      by , 04-27-2016 at 08:30 PM
      I did an unintentional WBTB this morning. I had woken up and was having trouble going back to sleep. I laid in bed for a couple hours and was pretty much ready to give up, when I noticed that I was I was starting to have little dream snippets.

      I was in a small space ship in the Star Wars Universe. It had crash landed on a snowy bank. The space ship continued to slide, and to my horror I noticed that we were going off the edge of a cliff. I had R2D2 on my craft and he was able to slow us down to the point we stopped right on the very steep edge. It was so steep, however, that I had no idea how I would get out.

      Then the dream skips to the point where I am face to face with a guy that looks like a Jedi. He was young with long blond hair. At first I thought he looked like Obi Wan (in episode 2). But then I notice he was younger and was a different person. For some reason I had my light saber out and I was ready to defend myself.

      Then the dream skips to the point where I must have passed out and was laying in the lap of this Jedi and he was stroking my hair.

      At that point I pop awake. I was disappointed because it had felt so peaceful to just lay all safe in the Jedi's arms and let him touch my hair. I wanted that to go on and on.

      I was also disappointed because I felt that because I had fallen asleep for that short time that I would never get back to sleep so I could lucid dream.

      But since I had some time before I had to get up I decided to give it another try. I got as comfortable as I could while laying on my back. I had ear plugs in and a shirt over my eyes because the light was starting to stream in my window. I willed myself to relax. Totally relax and let go. Let go... Let go...

      I suddenly found that I was hearing a great roaring noise. I immediately knew that I was starting to transition. I was having a WILD. It had been a long time since I had had a successful WILD. I was pretty excited about this. But I made myself lay still and let it take me for a ride.

      I was starting to see a visual that went along with the roaring. I was in what looked like a huge room. It was bigger than anything I had experienced. It reminded my of a hanger in a Star Destoryer, but bigger. I was being pulled through this feet first (because I was laying on my back in real life) at quite a fast speed. I watched the rust colored metal walls rush by me. As fast and noisy as this was, I felt quite safe. I was curious where this would take me.

      Suddenly I was spit out into outer space. I was going so fast. I was passing by stars and planets. Finally I decided that I was solidly enough in the dream that I could try to control it a little. I decided to try to slow down when I passed the next planet. Not a chance. I quickly passed it by. I tried again. I was still going too fast. Finally I saw a planet that looked just like Earth. I forced myself to slow and aim right at the planet. And I was able to drop down to the ground.

      The dream was so long (it felt like well over an hour). I remember several things that I did, but I'm not entirely sure of the order, so I will put them together the best I can.

      At some point I was at my grandparents' house. this house shows up in so many dream of mine. I think I went semi lucid at this point. I was cleaning it up and found all this really old food, like M&Ms and was eating them. I remember thinking "these are the old colors. Maybe I should save them." I also remember old cheese and wondered how safe it was to eat.

      Then I was in a large store. I had a crowd gathered around me. I had remembered that I wanted to create my halo (from Poet Anderson). I had done this in a previous dream, but decided to do it again. I guess I was going to show off to the crowd what I could do. I held up my hand and willed a halo to appear. Slowly I could see a golden tan line start to form. It swirled around forming a ball. I was proud of myself for being able to do this so easily, that I wanted to make it even more impressive. So I made it grow bigger and bigger. Soon it had a diameter of a couple feet.

      Then It suddenly got solid and fell to the floor with a thud. I felt a little embarrassed since the crowd was still watching me. I decided to be dramatic and dive into my halo and disappear. I did so and was nearly successful. But I realized that all of me went inside the halo but my feet. So much for impressing the dream characters. I climbed back out of the halo and picked it back up, and flew away.

      I remember another part of the dream where I was flying a plane. I was alone and realized that I didn't know how to fly a plane. But I told myself that since I was dreaming hat I could control it with my mind. I didn't have to know what the buttons and levers did. I did a fairly good job flying it, but my control was always a little delayed. I felt like I was going to crash into things but would barely miss at the last minute.

      Then I was flying (without a plane) around a nice neighborhood in the snow. I noticed how each house had a really nice porch. I then flew to a mall. I passed a mirror and realized that I had no make-up on. I was a lady at a make up counter and asked if she could do my make-up. So I sat there as she put eyeliner and eye shadow on my eyes. The nit hit me that I was totally wasting my time. Why did I need make-up in my dream anyway. I looked in the mirror again and saw that the make up was very minimal. I shouldn't have bothered.

      And that's all I remember. Perhaps more will come to me throughout the day.
    2. Ten Awesome years!

      by , 04-20-2016 at 11:01 PM
      First off, last night is my 10 year anniversary for my first lucid dream. Ten years ago today I joined Dreamviews (4-20-06). Also, something strange: I woke up this morning and looked at the clock at exactly 4:20. Conincidence? I think not.

      I remember a few dreams from last night, though I don't remember a lot of details from each of them. But I want to write them down so I can get back in the habit of recording my dreams every day. Life's better that way.

      Dream 1: I was with my sister getting ready to go in a plane somewhere. I don't remember much of this except her holding my hand in excited anticipation. I don't know where we were heading.

      Dream 2: I was in a car with Daniel, and he was driving way too fast on these crazy windy dirt roads that went along desert clifs and mesas (inspired by a video I watched before bed.)

      Dream 3: I was watching my friends who had taken a houseboat/kayaking trip to Face Canyon without me. They had kayaked to the end and were trying to figure out how to exit the canyon so they could hike. The water level was low. (inspired by a real trip to Face Canyon last year)

    3. Dream about (Almost) Shared Dreaming....and Other Dreams

      by , 08-24-2015 at 05:11 PM
      I did have some interesting dreams last night--which I will record in an attempt to make up for dropping the ball while traveling. In one dream I was talking to someone about lucid dreaming. In a way those are frustrating to wake up from, because there I was discussing lucidity....and never becoming lucid.

      In the dream I was at some sort of "natural living" convention. I was in a discussion group that started out talking about eating a healthy raw vegan diet. A husband and wife lead the discussion. Then it went on to how we should change our ideas of what a bedroom looks like. Instead of sleeping on a flat mattress we needed to create these burrows to sleep in. That idea fascinated me, and I asked a few questions about how to make that happen.

      Then the discussion turned to dreaming. Lucid Dreaming. The lady started sharing a lucid dream she had recently had. She talked about how she first went through a wall, and then she made a certain object come to life. And then she said something else she did (which I no longer remember). As I listened to her dream I realized that I had had a lucid dream where I went though the same actions--in the same order. I was amazed. I raised my hand and asked her, "Did you do this next...and this next?" And she was surprised and said, "Yes."

      I said, "Wow, we're having the same dreams. It's almost like a shared dreaming experience, but without both of us being there in the dream."

      We talked about it some more and decided to do some experiments to see if we could continue this and take it to the next level.

      I also had a dream about meeting up with an old high school friend Mark and going on this long backpacking trip. The dream took place the night before we left. We were still getting everything ready and hoping we could get some sleep before the big day. It seems like my mom was there part of the time.

      Then (and I don't know if this is connected to the previous dream), I was in the mountains. I had a small private helicopter and was flying from peak to peak and exploring (the obviously lazy way).

      In another dream I was with my friend (who in real life just had a baby on Saturday), and I think I was helping with the baby. I don't remember a lot from this dream.
    4. New Apartment/Bullies

      by , 06-08-2015 at 03:19 PM
      No lucid dreams for me last night. Also no epic adventure dreams. Back to regular dreams.

      In one of my dreams my friend Sherri and I were moving into this apartment together in Hollywood. The apartment not only had a loft but had three levels. I was telling Sherri that I had never seen an apartment this big (dream sign: big or unusual houses). I told her my plans on fixing up the loft area really cool with these little lights.

      Later, we were walking around the huge pool that was part of the apartment complex. We were looking for some clean towels, like they have at hotels. As we walked we started singing Scarborough Fair. We got some good harmony going and sounded good, so I wasn't embarrassed singing in front of all the people at the pool.

      Then we saw a group of guys surrounding a younger guy. The younger guy was skinny and looked about 16. The older guys were all picking on him and being really mean.

      I couldn't stand it. I needed to do something. I wasn't lucid, so I didn't know I had super powers. So I did the first thing that I could think of. I pushed my way past the bullies to where the younger guys was, and I put my arm around him and glared at the other guys. "What do you think you're doing to my boyfriend??" I demanded.

      They all stopped and looked at me...then at the younger guy...then at me. They had a look of disbelief on their faces.

      I wasn't sure if they were surprised because they thought I was too pretty or too old to be with this guy. Or maybe it was because I was glaring at them like I would kill them if they did anything else to him. Slowly they all walked away. The skinny guy smiled at me. He looked quite surprised himself, but also grateful. I felt glad to have been able to help.

      I can't remember where the dream went from there.
    5. Five Stressful Dreams

      by , 03-18-2015 at 05:57 PM
      No LDs last night. Just stressful dreams.

      In one I was asked by a lady I didn't know to do the decorations at her daughter's wedding. I had no info on exactly what was wanted. Not sure of the date or colors, etc etc.

      In another I was with a guy who was stealing materials from this site. I was with him, but I didn't want anything to do with stealing. I was just wanting to disappear.

      In another dream I was somehow back at this wonderful park of my childhood (in retrospect, it wasn't a real memory). I remember standing there looking over everything and feeling such strong overwhelming nostalgia. But then these teenage boys came and chased me off.

      In another I was going up the stairs to what was supposed to be my college dorm, but the stairs were messed up and I would have to jump across this really big gap....or fall three stories. To make it worse I was feeling kind of dizzy and was carrying a bunch of stuff. I think a cute guy might have come and helped me. But I don't remember much of that part.

      In another my friend and I were listening to a song from a favorite childhood band that had reunited. There were 3 of the original 5 members, and they were all old now. They had changed the band's name to something with the word "Order" in it. This dream seemed relevant somehow.
    6. WILD Attempt

      by , 02-19-2015 at 05:42 PM
      Well I was awake in the night and decided to try to WILD. I laid there and counted and told myself I would lucid dream. I got to the point where you start getting the little snippets of dream voices. I had been thinking about Tom DeLonge's interview before I started the WILD, so at some point at the latter end of my counting when I am feeling like I am transitioning I start hearing Tom's voice. I can't understand what he is saying. He was just chattering along as if to someone in the next room. I have the brief thought that his voice was like the chattering he told about in his interview. The other thought was "Cool, maybe this means Tom will be here when I fully enter my lucid dream."

      I also remember seeing little ripples of light move across my vision from left to right like little waves lapping the shore.

      But, unfortunately, that was the end. I didn't stay conscious enough to enter my dream in a lucid state. And I faded away to non-lucid dreams.

      But it wasn't a complete waste of time. It had been a while since I had attempted to WILD, and I can say that I successfully made it to the hypnogogia stage. I really need to do this more often.

      Quote from Tom's interview:

      I woke up right around three a.m. My whole body felt like it had static electricity, and I open my eyes and the fire is still going, and there's a conversation going on outside the tent. It sounded like there were about 20 people there, talking. And instantly my mind goes, OK, they're at our campsite, they're not here to hurt us, they're talking about shit, but I can't make out what they're saying. But they're working on something. Then I close my eyes and wake up, and the fire is out and I have about three hours of lost time.

      I get everyone up first thing in the morning and go, "Did anybody hear all the chatter last night? I couldn't move my body, I was stuck there. I couldn't hear anything." And one of the guys I was with goes, "Yes! They were all around our tent, they were talking. I told you!" And the other guy slept right through it. He had no idea what we were talking about. [laughs] It sounded like English, but you couldn't make out any words. You knew you weren't threatened, you couldn't move your body, but you were very aware of the conversation going on for a period of time.

    7. Missed Lucidity: The Stupid Mana Bar

      by , 01-22-2015 at 07:38 PM
      I just had one of those "Stupidest Ways You've Missed Lucidity" dreams. I always wake up frustrated after I have a dream where I am discussing lucid dreaming with someone and don't catch that I am dreaming.


      I am in my grandparents house with my mom and sister. I also see Marie walk by with her new Japanese friend. They are all dressed up. I am on what I think is the treadmill, but it seems to have a computer on it and I am reading from a lucid dreaming website. (I don't remember anything about it being Dreamviews specifically). I remember reading a post where someone is suggesting using a "mana bar" to help them with dream powers. I think about my World of Warcraft character, and how she uses a mana bar for her spells to work, and I think, "What a stupid idea!" In fact, I decide to rant to my mom and sister about just how stupid I think that idea is. I remember saying something like, "What...like I am supposed to make this mana bar over my head while I fly and stuff. And what happens if I run out of mana? Do I crash to the ground? That's just so dumb. I don't need mana to have my powers. I'll never run out. I just need to believe." And I think I went on a bit longer to my poor dream mom and sister.

      Then I remember sitting down at the kitchen table and asking my sister to pout me a bowl of cereal. She poured cereal into my bowl and what came out of the box was just marshmallows and chocolate chips. I said, "Whoa, I can't eat this." And she started scooping it back into the box. I said, "Wait, you can leave a few chocolate chips."

      And then my sister tells me about all these coupons she got from a cereal company by commenting on their website.

      Of course when I woke up I realized that it was my own subconscious that came up with the dumb mana bar idea. And that I missed a chance to become lucid, as well.
    8. Forgotten Dreams

      by , 01-15-2015 at 04:47 PM
      I found a paper by my bed. On it was a list of dreams that I had about a month ago. I had written down brief notes. Now if I had gotten them written up in my DJ here on the day that I had the dream I'm sure I would have remembered them. As I read through my notes I was a bit sad when I realized that I really didn't remember much. A few sort of rang a bell and I remembered a slight image from that dream, but with no detail. Other dreams on the list could have been dreamed by a stranger-- they were that forgotten. This is a huge reminder to me why journaling is important. Immediate journaling. Dream memories fade way too fast.

      But for fun I will list the notes here anyway.


      1. Rappelling in hotel

      2. Grandma's house/bathrooms/Christmas present/shirt from Elden/bows

      3. Weird bathroom/naked/kids in backyard/medication

      4. Looking for food with friend Marie/shop/clay bowl in class

      5. Talking with ladies/Jan Y/bed/quilt

      6. Lady/joke/dress-up

      7. Ghost/cave

      8. Cathy/letter

      9. Camping in gravel parking lot with Angela/worried

      10. Living room with Robert's kids

      11. Huge Fish tank in living room/lots of plants and baby fish

      12. Taking care of Mexican baby Malinda

      13. Baby Daniel talking

      14. Having a baby on the Rez/Paul B

      Ooo....I really wish I remembered the ghost/cave dream. I wonder if it will come to me if I really think about it.
    9. The Voices....

      by , 01-14-2015 at 10:02 PM
      I'm posting something from back in October 2006. A comment by Verre (about my recent micro nap dreams) made me think about this and go look it up again. I have heard "the voices" quite a few times in that transition between wake and sleep. But I don't think I have ever had it happen as much at one time as it happened this particular time.

      Here it is:

      I had another night with a blur of dreams. I woke up a little disappointed. But I decided to lay in bed and try to squeeze out one little dream before I got up. It ended up I wasn't tired enough to go fully asleep and have a full dream. But I got to the stage where I was hearing "the voices". I'm sure most people know what I am talking about--that stage where you think you are awake, yet you get funny little snips of conversation that you know were not part of your conscious thoughts.

      Well, I decided to write them down. After each, I lay back down and did it again. I got a funny little list of these "voices". Here they are:

      Someone talking about an invisible roommate: "You won't see her, 'cuz that's what's expected of her."

      "Your brother is so weird."

      Ladies voices:
      Lady #1: "Your mother said no DNA."
      Lady #2: "Your mother told me, too."

      "The kids and the military will be glad to be back."

      Old man's voice : "I can't believe you're not going to give me a cent."

      Many voices together: "It's gone!"

      Four black ladies sitting around a desk talking about my friend: "He wants to split the groups..." Laughing....

      Girl's voice: "And if you're lucky, let me know."

    10. Spilling Tiny Fish

      by , 12-03-2014 at 11:02 PM
      I need to start doing better again at recording my dreams. I have now had so many dreams that are lost forever.

      Last Night's Dream:

      I had some potted plants that I had sitting in a casserole type pan with water in it. I decided to move the plants. I was about to dump out the rest of the water from the pan when I noticed a baby fish in the water. I looked closer and saw another fish. I suddenly realized that the pan was full of tiny fish. I decided to pick up the pan to take it to my pond and let the fish out. As I picked up the pan I had trouble holding it steady and ended up dumping a bunch of the water out. I saw little fish all over my rug. I very carefully tried to pick up each tiny fish. When I thought I had them all, I tired to move the pan again. And again I splashed out a whole bunch of water and fish. I had a styrofoam cup. I tried decided to put some of the water and fish in that cup, so the pan wouldn't be as full. I kept picking up fish off the floor, soon my cup was full of dozens of little fish of all different kinds.
    11. Meeting Oneironaut Zero

      by , 11-13-2013 at 10:42 PM
      I wish I remembered more details, but I had a dream with Oneironaut Zero last night. He invited me over to meet him and his extended family. Apparently they all lived together in this very large house. Everyone was rushing about and were very busy. I briefly talked to O before he had to go do something. I remember setting my pillow down in a bedroom and waiting to have a chance to talk with O, but I woke up before I got to.

    12. The DeLonge's Giant Sloth

      by , 04-30-2013 at 04:53 PM
      Dream 3:

      I was going to go on a hike with Tom and Jennifer DeLonge. I went to their house to pick them up. When I got there I realized that I had never been there before. I came into their entry and was in awe as I saw they had a giant sloth skeleton set up. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen in anyone's house before. As Tom, Jennifer and I started our walk, all I could do was to talk about the skeleton and how cool it was and how I wanted one in my house now.
    13. My PE Teacher--Tom DeLonge

      by , 12-10-2012 at 04:57 PM
      "Oh no, it happened again.
      He's cool, he's hot, he's my friend er...PE Teacher"

      It was the first day of school. I wasn't looking forward to my PE class. I walked into the gym and joined the group of kids that were in the same class as me. The teacher walked in...and what a surprise to see that it was Tom DeLonge. I instantly decided that PE wasn't going to be as bad as I had originally thought. He was wearing a golden yellow T-shirt and long black shorts.

      He told us the first thing that he would be doing would be to teach us a bunch of short exercises that we would need to do everyday. He told us to take notes. He demonstrated each exercise, then we would do it, then we would write it down on our papers. I remember one particular exercise I had trouble getting right. It was called something like Jump Back. We were supposed to jump backwards into a squating position and from there jump up into the air. For some reason I kept trying to go down into a push-up before the jump. I had to repeat this several times to get it right. I hoped Tom wasn't watching me mess up, but part of me was hoping he'd notice how good I was as push-ups.

      Finally he told us to turn in our papers. He said he hoped we had taken good notes, and that he expected at least 3 pages worth of notes from each of us. I looked at my paper. I had filled only half a page. I had no idea that we were supposed to be turning this in. I had thought it was for personal reference only. My writing was a mess. I had two places I had scribbled out whole lines of writing. I hadn't really written much besides the name of the exercise and a few stick figures to remind me of the few exercises I wasn't familiar with.

      I decided to go talk to Tom. He was with a group fo people, but I worked my way in and stood by him until he acknowledged me. I held my paper to him and told him that I hadn't known that we were supposed to be turning these in. He looked at my paper. I told him that I knew most of these exercises already so I didn't write much down. He knodded as if that made perfect sense. And he smiled at the stick figures that I had drawn. I asked if it would be better to turn it it now as it was or if I should take it home and write it up much better. He told me that it would be fine to take it home and do what I felt I needed to do to it. He then smiled at me, and I could tell that he was glad that I was in his class. It made me happy.

    14. Going Back to work at the Preschool

      by , 11-03-2012 at 06:39 PM
      I had been taking a walk when I came to preschool that I used to work at. I was curious to see how everything had been going since I had stopped working there. I walked in the doors and saw Daron there with a bunch of kids. Suddenly these feelings came over me. Oh, how I missed this place. Daron saw me and said hi and asked if I had talked to Cathy Catowski yet--that she would be so happy to see me. I told him no and went to find her. She was coming out of the office and saw me. She was thrilled to see me and gave me a big hug. She told me how much she missed me working there. And then she got a hopeful look on here face and said, "You're coming back, right? That's why you're here."

      I wasn't sure what to say since I had ended up coming here sort of by accident. She told me that I wouldn't have to worry about any paperwork--that I could start anytime I wanted to, and she would make everything as easy for me as possible.

      Even though this was so sudden, I really wanted to be back. I knew this was the best thing in my life right now. I was going to do it.

    15. LD: Flying vs Kissing

      by , 10-18-2012 at 01:08 PM

      Lucid Dream:

      I forgot to write down this dream I had a few nights ago.

      I was with Jim at some kind of amusement park. Everything was miniature, yet people still seemed to be able to get on the rides. At one point I saw a two year old child behind the roller coster, and he seemed to tower over it.

      Suddenly I become lucid. I immediately forgot the amusement park. Part of me must have remembered that LD I had a little while back where it was my goal to kiss guys. Out of habit I leaned over to kiss Jim, but right as our lips touched I realized it felt wrong, so I then just took off in the air flying. I remember thinking, "Why would I even want to kiss anyone in an LD when I can fly...this is way better than kissing."

      I remember feeling the wind in my hair and that feeling in my stomach as I would swoop down close to the ground before pulling back up and into the sky again. This didn't last too long, maybe a couple of minutes. But it was really nice. At one point I was flying over water, either a lake or ocean.
