      Smile Change of Scene!

      What method do you use to change your dream setting? My personal go to is opening doorways. Any place I want to go, I imagine it behind a doorway, open it up, and BOOM! I'm there! Please share, I am very eager to hear all of the innovative ways people achieve this

      Generally I simply turn around, with a clear idea of the next "place" I want to be. But sometimes, when I'm in a particularly odd mood, I get a bit more dramatic, like when I make a "clean sweep" of sorts: I whisk away the existing scene, to be replaced with a new one ... The best example I have of this was during a dream that took place at a bar, and I had had enough of its plot and DC's. With a gesture, the whole scene swept away, as if blown by a hurricane; in a cartoonish moment, everything was gone, except for a beautiful woman perched upon a somehow surviving barstool, her red hair and long dress blowing in the gale. She stared at me, smiled, and then simply vaporized. I guess you had to be there, but what a moment!

      Another fun way to change scenes is by lifting the scenery as though it were so much 2-D fabric: I simply grab a (conjured) edge of the scenery -- usually near its base -- and lift it up, as if peeking under a stage curtain. There is invariably a new dream hiding behind the scenery I pulled away, but the funny thing is whenever I've done this I arrived in a place I was in no way expecting.

      Oh, and for some reason flying away never works for me, though I seem to try it a lot during low-level LD's: When I fly I generally just continue along above the same scenery, often with the DC's I just left flying in formation at my sides. Of course, this is just me; your results may vary.

      I think, though, that ultimately the best way to change scenes is by simply changing your mind.

      Very cool! I like the idea of lifting the scene up like a curtain, ill have to try that.

      Another one that I like to do is walking through a mirror, i'll look in a mirror and see a completely different scene within it and I can then either walk through it or simply turn around. If I'm in a creative mood ill just simply melt through the floor im standing on into another scene.

      Usually, I can't. I have done it once, a spinning teleport into my bedroom, which was epic.
