      The House

      I am in "The House" again. Someone is with me and I want to show them the dead children in the room that's hard to find way upstairs.

      There are two rooms up there that are hard to find. One has children playing and laughing in it. They've been there for hundreds of years. The other person in my dream finds that room first. I am waiting on the landing below. I tell her to look in the other room. I point the way. She goes up to look, she says the light is turned off, she will turn it on. I hear some older lady scream "no" in a ferocious voice. The light is turned on anyway and then there are gun shots and I flee the scene... scrambling downstairs, running for my life and abandoning the other poor person.


      Chased

      I am being chased again. I'm running and running trying to get away. I climb up a tree to avoid the person chasing me. He is now in a car trying to run me down. Suddenly I realise I'm dreaming. I shout "I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming". I'm still slightly afraid because I may not be able to control this dream and stop it or wake up.

      I drop down from the tree knowing I am dreaming and I must try to stop or control this dream. I close my eyes and wait for the car to hit me. I try to envision a pretty scene, a golden corn field.
      I wake up.


      No Privacy in the Bathroom

      I need to use the bathroom. I go in and there are many toilets but there are no cubicles or privacy of any kind. I remember the embarrassment of being seen on the toilet before.

      I leave that room and find another. There is a girl leaving the bathroom and she washes her hands at an outside tap. I walk in and see there is more privacy in these toilets. Then I realise they're not toilets, they're cooking facilities. Where did that girl go toilet? On one of these? Yuck! I can't do that. Then I see at the very end, there's a toilet.

      The Example

      I'm watching an advert or demonstration. "What if you had a plain white block? You'd be disappointed. But what if it had numbers on it? You could play games with it. Like a domino." I feel like this is an example... like a parable.


      The Gun

      I'm upstairs in some house. I live there with my family. I have a gun and some matches and bullets. I have to light the match in order to load the gun with the bullets. It's dangerous and I could have blown up the whole house... but the gun is loaded now. I hide it under my mother's bed. I'm in a hurry because she's coming. I'm trying to push it near the centre of the bed so she doesn't kick it with her feet when she walks around it.


      Robocop???

      My dad and I are being chased by a bad man. We run to some offices and then I am merely watching as my dad's about to be caught. The scene replays again and this time I remember my dad is Robocop. As he's about to be caught I yell at him "why aren't you turning into Robocop?" I know he has a yellow shell-like armour he can wear if he turns into Robocop.


      Chased

      I'm being chased by a muscular black man. He toys with me, he lets me go and chases me again. Up stairs, down stairs, in and out of buildings. He is far too clever and none of my efforts to lose him come close to succeeding. It's hopeless.


      Illness

      My mother's sister is fatally ill. She will die soon. She is sick because she stepped in cow manure and dried cow urine as a child. My dad stepped in cow urine too. Why isn't he sick? Her son is ill too. He is about twelve and has straight,short blond hair. He has been unconscious. He is barely conscious now. He needs an operation on his eye tooth. It will mean being unconscious again. He bravely chooses to go ahead with the operation. He is in recovery and must stay in bed. I look at his surroundings and remember when I've been in bed for long periods and have studied every inch of every pattern of the curtains, pictures, wallpaper etc.


      Walking with my Mother

      My mother and I are somewhere near my grandmother's house. We are walking along a path and there is water and rocks and even a waterfall. It's beautiful. My grandmother told us we could cross over to another area if the water was just right. My mother looks around and has no idea what she meant. She is irritated. I look around and point across some water that may be shallow enough to cross. There is lots to explore, it's all so beautiful. My mother shakes her head. She doesn't think that's it. She is not enjoying this.


      The Invention

      A guy is trying to impress me. He has a little envelope of pink moisturiser. He tapes it shut but leaves a tiny bit untaped. He gives it to me so I can tape it to my bicycle handlebars. Then when my hands get dry or sore I can squeeze the package slightly and moisturiser will come out.

      Microwaves

      No real idea what this dream was about. Just a line of microwaves, lots of them. I was looking for a 32 litre one.


      Friend from the Past

      I'm laying down on the grass in a rugby field. I can see a friend flying for fun above me. He sees me and comes down closer. I tell him I miss him. He seems surprised and says "really?".

      My mother approaches, I tell him he better go and he does.


      Mission to Mars

      I'm excited. I am packing a month's worth of clothes for my trip to Mars in a huge hexagonal balloon. I have a mattress. I have a cell phone. I can't find the charger. I'm in a hurry. The balloon is leaving soon. I have 17 pairs of underwear and 18 pairs of socks. I need a month's worth. Will we be able to wash our clothes in the balloon? How will we get them dry?

      I go shopping for underwear. Everyone is sold out. There is only a horrible skimpy pair of red extra large ones left. I don't want them. Some other woman tells me I can't have them because she wants them. That's fine with me.

      I race back to my stuff and start throwing it all on board the balloon. I go to climb on board and my stuff is all gone, someone has put it all away for me. I see my parents. I look around and it seems too small for everyone to have somewhere to sleep. Then I notice this is just one social area, there are rooms beyond. This balloon is totally huge.

      My dad tells me where my room is. He's sitting on a mattress in the middle of three other sleeping areas. Mum is sitting behind him. It's a bit too communal, not private at all. I ask him if my room is there with him and mum. He says no and points.

      I walk in the direction he is pointing. I walk past lots of rooms and look for my stuff. I see people have even brought along wooden dressing tables and television sets. Some rooms look quite fancy. I feel a tiny bit embarrassed about the gear I brought along because it's very basic.

      I finally find my room. Nice and private.

      Next I am back with a group of people. We are floating up in the balloon. We are heading for Mars. It's going to take a very long time. It will be very dangerous. We will run the risk of being burned up as we leave earth's atmosphere. The seams of the balloon must be flawless. We should be wearing clothes with elasticated cuffs to protect our skin. But that shouldn't matter as long as the seams of the balloon hold up.

      Suddenly something's not right. The balloon has stopped floating upwards and instead has slowly floated downwards! We have hit water. The landing legs of the balloon are dragging through the sea. The balloon starts to fill with water. This is it. This is how I am going to die. I am about to die shortly. I don't believe it.

      People swim/run to the right hand side of the balloon and try to roll it up out of the water by pulling the sides down with the flat of their hands in a rolling motion. They then race over to the left hand side and repeat the process.

      It's futile. It's gone dark. There is only a few feet of the balloon above water and it has collapsed in shape so it's like I'm in a dark tunnel. Everyone is gone. Only the odd person appears fleetingly before racing away ahead of me.

      Suddenly the balloon is crashing onto a shore. It causes a tidal wave and I am riding that tidal wave. It goes on and on. I see the shore is a huge construction site. I am afraid I will hurt myself when I land.

      I land safely on some machinery. But the people here are angry and not happy at the intrusion of the surviving crew from the balloon. Someone chases me with a chainsaw. I come across a woman who helps me, she has a chainsaw and she gives me one too. I am not adept at wielding chainsaws. We fight other people using our chainsaws like swords.


      Mission to Mars 2

      We are going to try a mission to Mars again. This time the balloon has been designed with the gap between the inner and outer layer reduced so that we should float upwards a lot faster. This time the trip should take two days there and two days back.

      We float away and begin our trip.

      I watch a man talk about outfits with elasticated cuffs. Again, these won't be necessary if the seams of the balloon hold. The man describes the pain you will feel, starting in your feet, if a hole were to appear in the balloon. The pain will be like hundreds of tiny bits of your flesh leaving your foot, pick, pick, pick. I ask the man if we should not tear a larger hole in the balloon and totally destroy it if that should happen... speed up the process so we die in one large sucking burst of flame rather than suffer slowly and fearfully. The man says a definite "no".

      I guess he's right, after all, I remember during the last mission it seemed hopeless but some of us survived it.

      I examine the seams of the balloon, there are gaps all over the place. I am horrified. The dream ends.


      Mission to Mars 3: Abort

      I examine the seams of the balloon before leaving this time. I'm angry. I have no faith in the balloon or the people who made it. I really want to go on this trip but if we go in this balloon we will die! There are faults in the seams everywhere! I'm not sure of myself. Am I being overly paranoid? I show the faults to others. Nobody pays much attention, reinforcing my feelings of paranoia. It makes me more angry, I'm sure these seams are unsafe. I'm sure of it!


      I wish I had become lucid during "Mission to Mars". What a blast that would have been. What scope for fun! Darn it.

      Wow, a great start to your online dream journal! I notice you seem to have a lot of dreams where you have 'dream memories' or knowledge that is just there in the dream. The one with the waterfall sounds right gorgeous.



      ...and yes, I'm stalking you.

      Mission to Mars sounds like a pretty epic dream. Did you wake up between each part? Or did they just happen one after another? Were you trying to reenter the dreams?

      I woke up between each part and I wasn't consciously trying to re-enter each dream, however I had read earlier that day about the "FILD" technique and I was doing that in the hopes of becoming lucid... I wasn't thinking of anything except the fingers, was too tired to think of anything else. I must have re-entered the dream because that's part of the FILD technique, but I didn't become lucid.

      Previous LDs

      Just going to insert previous Lucid Dreams here so I can preserve them. I was thinking of my best fully fledged (correction, ONLY fully fledged) LD earlier today and realised bits were fading from memory.

      So here's some I remember:

      1. I look at my hand. I realise I'm dreaming and immediately wake up. Darn it!


      2. I'm in my bedroom. I look at my hand. I realise I'm dreaming. My hand looks exactly like I have been on acid or magic mushrooms. It looks like is has its own aura. I move it backward and forward and it shimmers and "trails" like a hundred images of the same hand.

      I'm excited. I can do whatever I want. I decide to go outside. I leave my room, walk down the hall and grab the handle to the front door.

      But my hand can't grasp the handle, my hand passes through it. It's not me that has no substance, it's the door. So I walk right through it. Suddenly I am concerned the door is locked and I won't be able to get back in. Then I laugh to myself for being so silly... I'm dreaming and I can do anything I want. A locked door is not going to stop me getting back in. I am delighted with this little joke.

      I decide to go flying. Flying is easy, I hover and fly over my neighbours. They're gathering around and having a barbecue. I yell out "hello neighbours". I'm happy and smiling. They don't take any notice of me and I'm not bothered about that, I don't expect them to. They don't know I'm there.

      I enjoy some more flying around and then the dream is gone. The euphoria lasted for a long, long time.


      3. I'm having a nightmare. I realise it's just a dream but I can't wake myself up and I can't control the dream. I scream at myself to wake up to no avail. Finally I throw myself through a large glass ranchslider. It smashes as I fly through it and I wake up in a state of fear and shock and wonder if I'm hurt.


      After that dream I began to fear that you could really hurt yourself in a lucid dream. What if you really threw yourself through some glass while asleep? Now I realise sleep paralysis prevents that, thankfully.

      There have been other, brief lucids where I realise I'm dreaming but can't do anything about it and then I wake up. Now I'm hoping to get better at it by using the resources on this forum.

      Driving, Butterflies - Fragments

      Driving past car dealership. I'm in the way of someone wanting to turn into the dealership.

      A man is talking to a girl on the street "We cannot drive any of these cars unless they are registered. Are you able to come up with more than $48 deposit?".

      $48 is all the girl can come up with.

      Two men debate the benefits of one steering system over another and discuss how it's bolted on.

      They fill the back seat with $48 worth of butterflies.


      Appalling dream recall last night. Disappointing. Maybe trying too hard. Lots of hypnagogic imagery.

      Fragments

      In a building with a friend. Each driving something like a fork hoist, doing a task. I'm nearly finished. We have a long way to travel afterwards. My friend wants me to wait until she is finished.


      In a supermarket. Flirting with someone else's boyfriend. I don't really want him but I am toying with him. I tell him he wants to kiss me. He denies it, but then tries to meet up with me in the next isle.


      Diesel Engine Boat - Fragment

      A friend and I are at someone's house dropping something off. While there we see two men working on two boats.

      I go back home and comment to my friend that I liked the diesel boat. I get a phone call and it's the man who was working on the diesel boat. He tells me to come and view it, indicating he might sell it to me.

      He describes it on the phone; it runs on diesel, it has two skinny chimney type pipe things, both two metres high. It has an electricity generator. You can live on it. It takes two people to pilot it.

      I am excited to go and view it and wonder how much it will cost. I wonder if my parents will think it a foolish waste of money. But I really want to buy it. I want to live on it and escape on it.


      An Accident - Fragment

      I see a young man fallen, dangling off a railing, all tangled up in some harness. He is angry with his job that has landed him in this predicament. He cuts the harness away and scrambles back up onto the railing and onto the ground.

      Him and I feel ignored by the people standing nearby. We are both dangling off some railings. Swinging along them, up and down and along, like they're monkey bars. We swing down to the ground and because we are angry that we are being ignored, we steal a bunch of white plastic utensils or pegs of some kind.

      We are now in my diesel boat, crouching down, putting the white plastic things away in a cupboard where some cups and coffee etc are.

      I am talking to a higher being, "how do I pray?" The answer is "All of creation is to your left and to your right. Look down and ask your friends, your loved ones..."


      Again I'm disappointed at the lack of recall and lack of details and story flow.

      Each time I woke up in the night I did a reality check. One time I was so busy congratulating myself on doing a reality check immediately upon waking that I forgot what I may have been dreaming about prior to that.

      However, I am hopeful that my instinct to do reality checks all through the night is a sign of progress.

      Bus Trip

      I'm in the back of a bus. I am with some old school friends. I have just finished my period. Some of my clothing is ripped and laid down on the seat. (x rated scene)


      Pretty Stream

      I am running away from some people. Not really scared, just want to be alone. They think I'm insane/not all there.

      I head to a lovely sunny bank next to a stream. Other people are sitting on the bank here and there. I try to find a nice private place to sit. There are small young trees throwing small patches of shade. I smile like a retard, I feel like a retard seeking out a simple, quiet place to sit down and look at the pretty stream.

      I find a lovely spot but am driven to keep looking for a better spot.

      I finally find myself right in front of the stream. I look in and there are all kinds of lizards, beautiful green lizards about eight inches to a foot in length. I look at them in delighted wonder and again feel like a simple retard.

      I follow the stream along and there is a room at the end of it. I walk in and there are pretty aquariums in there.


      Glass Tower and an Elevator

      I approach a glass tower. There is a man in a business suit approaching it too. He says he wishes the tower was not made of glass. I just wish I wasn't going up in it at all. I'm nervous.

      What if there's a thunder and lightening storm? How do people live here? They must get so frightened during a storm.

      I go inside and step into an elevator. The other man goes somewhere else. I rise up in the elevator to the fourth floor. There are many, many more floors above me. An Asian woman wants to come in the elevator too. I seem to have stepped out and stepped back in again, I've gotten in wrong somehow. The doors are trying to close on me as I walk in backwards.

      The Asian woman can't get in at all and she waits for another lift.

      I press a button to go up higher in the building but because I got in the elevator wrong I end up going down instead of up. I am now on the third floor and have no idea how to go up any higher.


      Computer Trouble

      An office across the road is having trouble with their computer since installing the Microsoft Office package she purchased from the company I work for.

      I go to our receptionist and find out how much they paid for the package. She shows me a spreadsheet. I look at it and there are four entries (word, excel, outlook and one other)... Each entry has $380 in the cell next to it and there is a total at the bottom.

      I know this price isn't right. I delete one entry so there are only three entries with $380 written next to them but the total at the bottom doesn't change. The receptionist hasn't used the "total" function in excel properly.

      Also I realise that $380 per office program is way over priced. I give up and decide to fix the computer problem the office across the road is having.

      I tell my fellow workers and the office lady across the road that I will uninstall Microsoft Office, clean the registry and then reinstall Microsoft Office and that should resolve the problem.


      Before bed I read some of Stephen LaBerge's Book, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming. I read a technique which I then tried.

      I counted "One, I'm dreaming, two, I'm dreaming, three, I'm dreaming etc until I reached a hypnagogic state. Then I realised I had stopped counting, and was dreaming but still awake, the dream would disappear and I would begin counting again...

      This happened about three or four times until I fell asleep. I think I need help/advice with this technique. I don't know what to focus on or how to step into the dream instead of realising I'm dreaming and beginning to count again.

      Other times I tried the FILD technique. This resulted in more hypnagogic imagery and falling asleep.

      I also noticed this morning that my forefinger felt like it was in a clamp while doing FILD. Could be nothing but wanted to record it.

      Animals up the Chimney

      My friend and I hear some scratching, fluttering sounds coming from up my chimney. I'm not too worried. I think it's just some birds making a nest or something.

      My friend is more concerned so she opens a cupboard that reveals the contents of my chimney. huh? lol Some ash falls to the ground.

      I look up and I see a seagull and two black and white cats. Then my dog Hustler appears up there! She must have gone up to see the other animals. Then I see my other dog, Daisy, too. I call to Hustler to come down. She's my beautiful sweetheart, I love her dearly.

      She jumps down. It's a really long way and I want to catch her so she doesn't hurt herself. She is 14 so she is very old. I manage to break her fall sufficiently and she is safe.

      I call Daisy down and she jumps too. She is bigger and heavier than Hustler but I break her fall and she is safe too.

      I try to reach up for the seagull next. I look at it and keep thinking it should be a cockatiel, not a seagull. I own two cockatiels But no, it is definitely a seagull. I reach up, knowing that the seagull will not hop down onto my hand like a cockatiel would, but I try it anyway. The seagull is frightened and squawks and flutters at me.

      Now my mother is there and she decides to climb a ledge thing to try to reach the seagull and the cats. The ledge is too fragile and will break. I think I should get a ladder but my mother goes ahead and tries to get up on the ledge anyway.

      Sure enough the ledge starts to give way and exposes the nails as they pull from the wall. She hops down and proceeds to break the ledge off completely and pull the all the nails out.

      I don't want her to do that, I want to fix the ledge. I tell her to stop it and that she should ask me first as it's my house!

      She continues pulling it all out anyway. I'm furious and upset. I yell at her and she yells back. I'm crying and angry beyond belief. I hit her and she hits me back. I have never hit my mother.I tell her she should apologise and she is shouting something back and we both finish our sentences together in unison:

      "You're in the wrong!"


      The Foreign Guy and the Car Ride

      I am walking in the alley way behind the house where I used to live as a child. I see a guy who is looking for his girlfriend. I ask him if he has his eftpos card. He says he doesn't. He has an accent, he's a foreigner.

      If he had his eftpos card we could tell if there was no money and that would help in finding his girlfriend.

      I ask if he can phone his home. He says he can't because he bought some phone cables from Retravision I work there two days a week and they are the wrong ones. They are overseas cables not New Zealand ones.

      I tell him to return the cables and get his money back. He is too afraid to because if people find out his name, address and phone number then he will be forced to leave the country and return home.

      I tell him to return the cables next time I'm working and I will give him his money back myself.

      I then ask him if he would like a ride home. He is pleased and accepts.

      I have to shuffle the cars around in our driveway. My motorbikes and my parents cars are all in the way. My old car that I no longer own is finally able to be driven out so I climb in. Then instead of it being my old car, the interior is a different car, a small hatch back type.

      I reverse the car out and I am concerned of bunny hopping or embarrassing myself with poor driving skills. I get the car out ok and then I try to continue to drive it but the three pedals are soooo close together my foot can't brake without hitting the accelerator as well.

      I realise I have driven this car in my dreams before. But I do not become lucid!


      The Camcorder

      I am sitting in a chair opposite a young man and I have a camcorder in my hand. I am proving to him that if you don't put a tape in it, if you keep the tape in your hand instead of in the camcorder, you can film someone and the filming will not be on the tape.

      I take a brief recording without the tape. Then I put the tape in and hand it to him to view the contents of the tape. He is satisfied.

      Then I take the tape out very carefully. I am close to dropping it and I am trying not to damage it.

      Week Two:

      The Husband and Wife

      I'm watching a live show. A young woman is home from the navy and her young husband is brought onto the stage to welcome her back and he gives her a hug. The body language between the two of them suggests something is not right and I comment on this to the person I'm watching the show with.

      They are not hugging with the front of their bodies pressed together like you would expect.

      Someone in the crowd makes some sort of comment and everyone smiles and the young man says "yes, we can do it every night now". The inference is sex.

      The show switches to a movie now and I'm watching the young man and his wife in a car. A chauffeur is driving, the woman is in the passenger seat and the man is in the back.

      The driver is on "P" and has become enraged and dangerous. The woman tries to discretely reach in the back for her purse where she has a gun. The chauffeur notices and touches his brakes hard enough to make the car shudder and the woman loses her grip on the purse.

      The husband discretely kicks the purse under the passenger seat in the hopes of retrieving it later.


      The Husband and Wife Continued

      I see the husband and wife and their chauffeur on a small row boat with a few other people. They are relaxed and enjoying themselves.

      I sense danger as I know the man is about to become enraged on "P" again. How will they escape this time?


      Sorting VHS Movies

      I am on the floor going through some large cases of VHS movies. My friend is on a chair nearby. I am trying to find good ones that we haven't already seen. I want to give her some to take away to watch later.

      There is a young girl of seven or eight sitting on the floor. Her dad is on a chair nearby. Her father tells her to go to bed. I continue sorting through my tapes. The young girl just sits there on the floor ignoring her father. Her father tells her again to go to bed. Again the girl just sits there refusing to go.

      I think to myself, "No wonder parents have to beat their children like my parents beat me. How else do you get these kids to do as they're told? This child will not obey the parent. She will simply do as she pleases because she is not afraid of any consequences."


      Girl Verses Snake

      We are in a lounge room with wooden floors. There is a girl being attacked by a snake.

      Her father approaches and gives her a stick. He says "There, that increases the odds four to one."

      I think that makes sense, as she has four limbs.


      The Job Interview

      It is after 5pm and my mother and I are heading to her work because she has forgotten something.

      We reach her building and ring a door bell. A woman comes to the door and my mother and her exchange a meaningful glance of shared animosity. My mother is not at all pleased to see her. The woman tells us to go to the building next door and my mother says she is glad to.

      We go to the building next door and ring the door bell. A woman comes to the door, I shake her hand and she summons me inside. She is expecting me. My mother waits outside.

      I go up the stairs with her and we head to a seat. There is almost room for two people to sit on the same seat and the woman comments on this. I let her sit down first and I find a seat that is two steps down. I look up at her and we have a conversation.

      During this conversation I realise this is a job interview. I wasn't expecting a job interview. Did my mother set this up with this lady? I don't feel nervous at all. I'm enjoying the conversation with this woman who is the boss.

      The lady leaves the room and goes downstairs and outside. Another lady enters. I shake her hand. She is the manager. Again I immensely enjoy the conversation. She tells me some other people are coming in. She apologises. All the other applicants are managers. (More qualified than me.)

      Four other people walk in. They work here too and they are here to meet me. There are two women and two men. I shake one woman's hand. I go to shake the other woman's hand and my hand is rejected. The manager mumbles something like "oh yeah, don't offer your hand". Then the woman that rejected my handshake offers me a hug. I realise that we are supposed to hug each other, not shake hands. I feel ok.

      I then shake the hands of the two men. They are wearing black leather and I guess they are motorcyclists. I ask them if they ride and they say yes. I say I do too and they ask me what I ride. I tell them I ride a ZX10R. I don't, I ride a VTR1000, I think ZX10R was easier for me to remember.

      I am hugely enjoying myself at this interview and I really like the other women who work here. I really hope I get the job. I am so relaxed and just know I would love working with them all.


      Working at Retravision

      Colin has sold a stereo to some guy. I put the sale through for him. The stereo is $2300 but when I put the sale through it only goes through for $2000.

      I show Colin while the person buying the stereo is still there. I leave it with him and continue with my work.

      Colin tells the boss and the boss comes up to me and says I type so fast and the ring on my finger hit a neighbouring key and I entered the code wrong and that is why we lost $300 on that sale. He said he wanted me to know that before I go to his funeral.

      I say sorry and think to myself that I will check that out when he is not looking. He turns away and I enter the stereo code into the computer and again the price comes up as $2000.

      I tell Colin and I can see the look on his face. I know he already knew I hadn't entered the code wrong and had let the boss think I had. I'm furious and upset. I prove to him and the boss that I entered the code correctly, Colin continues to look guilty and the boss looks like he couldn't care less.


      Working at Retravision 2

      We have a new product to sell. It's a white portable DVD player. We need to put it on display. The packaging will go on display and the DVD player will be locked away so it doesn't get stolen. The girls want to display the free DVD movies that come with the player as well but I am protest that they will get stolen.

      I carry on serving other customers then come back to the girls. I see they have displayed the free movies and I worry to myself about them getting stolen.

      The DVD player hasn't got a code in the system yet. Normally new codes are created by head office and entered into our computer by them. But we need a code now. The girls worry that if we enter the code into the system and then head office try, they won't be able to because the code already exists.

      I tell them not to worry and point out that head office enters the code with the supplier's initial in front and then a forward slash before the actual code so we can enter the code for now and it won't interfere with head office's code.

      The Yellow Car

      I have a brand new yellow sports car. It's beautiful and I'm immensely proud of it. I drive it to a parking lot near work and I am careful not to hit anything. I know everyone at work will see my lovely yellow car and I'm so pleased.


      Biscuits

      I'm counting some biscuits. There are sixteen of them spread out on a tray. I need to eat (or otherwise get rid of) four of the biscuits so there will be ten left. For some reason there needs to be ten on the plate, not sixteen. And sixteen minus four is ten? Hmmm.


      On the Run

      A friend and I are in a car and are on the run from a group of bad people. We can't even trust the police in case they betray us. We're even on the news.

      We need to ditch the car because the police will be able to forward our license plate number to the bad guys.

      We call into a car hire place. My friend organises the new car. I ask her if she wrote our old car license plate on the application form and she says she did. I'm angry and frustrated. They can trace the new car with that information. We will need to fill out another form and hire yet another car. This time I fill out the form. It costs $60 to hire the car and I only have $30 and some coins. My friend needs to make up the difference.

      We drive off and carefully avoid police attention as we head to her house (about two hours drive away).

      No sooner do we arrive at her house than the bad guys arrive. My friend tries to pretend we are just the house sitters but the bad guys are not fooled. They push their way into the house.

      They sit at the table and do drugs. I dial 111 (emergency services in NZ) on my mobile phone and disguise the sound of the operator by holding the phone against my leg. I hang up when I feel I have had it on long enough for the police to trace the call. (For some reason the police are trustworthy now.)

      The police don't turn up but my friend tries dialing 111 on her phone. She manages to secretly speak to the police.

      A short while later two police vehicles show up. My friend and I race outside toward the safety of the police. The police already have the bad guys in hand cuffs.


      Sense of Evil

      My friend and I are at her house. She is eating her goldfish. She suspects there are some evil spirits in the house. She asks if I have seen any half fish. I haven't. I think to myself that it is a shame I can't get my parents to come over. They could cast the demons out of the house.


      Runaway Toddler

      A man puts his two year old daughter out the window of his dining room to have a play outside. When he calls her back over to come in she says "stay here?" and won't come close enough to the window to be lifted back inside.

      He comes out of the house to get her and she toddles away laughing.


      Disobedient Teens

      I am in a bedroom watching two teenagers. They are being punished for something and must lay on their beds facing the ceiling. They must not touch anything or play with anything. Just lay there until the punishment is over. Like time out.


      Fetching my Dog

      I have to get my dog Hustler from the back of my yard. My friend is with me. My friend is frustrated because I have to go the long way around to get my dog and she didn't know I had a long way around.


      Organising my Yard

      I have a huge back yard. I'm trying to position everything in it to make the most of it. I have an area where the ground slopes away for a few hundred metres. I want to put my swings at the top of this slope so when you swing it feels like you're swinging over a huge empty space.


      I remember at least twice in the night doing a RC and realising I was experiencing hypnagogic imagery AFTER a dream while waking up. This is the first time I have been aware of HI while waking up instead of while going to sleep. Again I am pleased with myself for doing a RC in the middle of the night. Both times I simply came fully awake.

      The Clubhouse and the Forest

      I'm in a clubhouse. The tables have all been knocked over and the place is in disarray after a night of boozing. I believe we need new tables. Someone else says we just need to pick up and tidy the existing tables. I demonstrate how flimsy and fragile the existing tables are and how they will be knocked down again the very next time someone bumps into one.

      A group of us take a long run through the forest. We're heading to another clubhouse. I'm not sure if we're going to look at the clubhouse and see how it's furnished and set up to get ideas for our own clubhouse or if we're going to adopt it as our own. I'm thinking if we're going to adopt it as our own it's going to be a long way to come to meet in it.

      I'm enjoying the run immensely. I have lots of energy and am stable up and down the track and over obstacles. I'm wondering where my father is. He finally shows up and says "sorry". I worry that his apology is ambiguous. People might think he is "sorry" for messing up the clubhouse, but I know he didn't do it. He then adds "... for being late" and takes up the lead at the front of the pack.

      I turn to my mother and tell her I am enjoying this run. She tells me that is because I have good soles on my shoes that prevent me from slipping and sliding. I think to myself that I agree, I DO have good soles on my shoes but I am enjoying the scenery and it brings back warm and happy feelings of cross country runs from my youth.


      Beach Scene

      I'm in a house looking at the beach that is only about a hundred yards away. My mother comments in surprise how lucky this window is right here otherwise we wouldn't see this one particular portion of beach. I agree, it's beautiful.

      I move to the next window and I can still see that portion of beach. I move to the next window and I can still see that portion of beach. I continue to move across and find myself outside right in front of that portion of beach.

      I'm looking at a family sitting in the shallows of the water having a picnic. I almost wish I was sitting there with them, then I realise it must be very, very cold after sitting there a while.


      Car Ride and Lollies

      I'm in the back seat of a car. My parents are in the front. Someone else is in a seat behind me. There are three bags of lollies, Jaffas, Snifters and Cool Mints. My mother mixes them all into one big bag and offers me some.


      My dreams are badly fragmented and recall was difficult. I had difficulty getting to sleep and when I woke up in the middle of the night as I normally do, I had difficulty getting back to sleep again.

      Just had a nap... or tried to anyway.

      Laid down for ages. After a long time I realised I was vibrating. I immediately wondered if it was the start of something. It felt like my entire upper body was vibrating to the beat of my heart.

      Then my mobile phone rang and wrecked it all...

      Dogs' Breakfast

      My friend had steak for dinner and there was heaps left over on a plate on the bench. I saw it and thought it would make a nice breakfast for my dogs.

      When I got up this morning I actually looked for it and when I couldn't find it, that's when I realised it was a dream.


      Sleep Paralysis and Pain - No Dream

      Woke up with sleep paralysis and pain. When I'm in sleep paralysis, if someone is hugging me or touching me in some way it hurts intensely.


      Colin and the Bag of Lollies

      I have a large mixed bag of wrapped lollies. I take them to work to share around. After serving a customer, the customer offers me some of what he's eating and I want to offer him some lollies. I go to reach down and get some and they're missing.

      I know Colin has hidden them so I tell Colin I have offered some lollies to the customer and I can't find them. He points to some stock high up on a shelf indicating they are hidden up there.

      I go and get them but the customer has already left. Colin gets angry. He asks why I bought such a large bag anyway. I told him they don't all have to be eaten today! He doesn't listen and keeps asking why I bought such a large bag, like I'm greedy or something.

      I pick up HIS bag of lollies and tell him his bag is also large and he IS likely to eat them all in one day! A girl I work with agrees and laughs.

      The next time I notice my bag of lollies it is significantly depleted. Now I'm worried Colin will think I am eating all the lollies in one day. I need to find out who ate all my lollies. I suspect it's a girl who works upstairs. How do I discretely find out without seeming like I resent her for taking them? I don't mind that she took them, I just need to know WHO took them.


      Work - Fragments

      I'm sorting through some mail I have to deliver for Retravision. Someone else seems to have some of the mail I'm supposed to deliver. Nobody else is supposed to get that mail except me. It's my contract. I pretend I'm not bothered but I am.

      I see someone has 50 Telecom envelopes to post. This is nothing to do with my mail delivery. Just something extra this girl picked up. She will get 17 cents for each letter. I calculate that isn't much. My thought process is that if she got 20 cents per envelope they would get $10 so since they're only getting 17 cents they're not even getting $10. But it doesn't take long for the girl to post them and she was being paid for her normal work anyway so it worked out ok for her.

      I am looking for a company credit card, a QCard. I'm supposed to carry one when I do my deliveries. I go outside and look in the brand new station wagon that was supposed to be my new company vehicle. But the other woman who got my mail contract has been driving it. I am entitled to look in it so I do. She acts like she's not bothered and shows me some extra compartments to look in.


      Picking up Computers

      I'm picking up some computers that need to be repaired. The guy offers to pay up front and goes to look for the money. I tell him not to worry, I don't take payment until the job is complete.


      To be continued... I have to go to work at Retravision this morning

      Just got home from work. While at work I saw a wrapped lolly on a desk. It was the same as the ones I dreamed about. I picked it up and asked Cassandra who the lolly belonged to. She said Colin bought a large bag of them yesterday and he ate the lot and made himself sick. This lolly was the only one left.


      A Man, His Dog and His Banjo

      I am working in some outdoor plant shop. My uncle works there too. A contractor delivers some stuff then asks if he can rent the place to live there. My uncle says he can't be bothered organising rent contracts and dealing with all the hassles. The man says he only wants to stay one night so my uncle agrees.

      The man sits in the back of his ute (truck) with his dog and his banjo. Everyone wishes he would stop playing the banjo because he's not very good at it.

      We come back to work in the morning and the man and his dog are gone but the ute is still there and it's totally littered with empty beer cartons. Someone comments that his boss will not be happy.

      Kings, Queens and Treachery - Fragment

      This dream was so vivid and such a great story and I can't remember it.

      I can see a huge mountain-like mound. The dirt and mud is scraped away revealing a huge castle. It's intricate, vivid, beautiful and amazing.

      A narrator is telling the story of the castle and the kings and queens who lived in it. He tells stories of great treachery and murder.

      At some point in the dream I'm falling. I'm falling down beside the castle, falling past its levels. I spin as I fall in an attempt to land at the correct level... to land at a specific point in the story.


      Can't Afford $40

      Some women from work are taking up a collection so they can buy groceries for some people in need. I think this is a good idea. Then one woman decides we should buy ourselves some groceries too. I start to get a bit nervous.

      I have a power bill that I can't manage to pay and I don't mind donating a bit of cash for some people in need but I don't want to put in some money for groceries for everyone to share at work as well because I really can't afford it.

      The woman that suggested we buy ourselves groceries gets all excited and mentions buying some badger honey. Now I'm getting mad. Badger honey??? I'm not eating honey made from badgers!

      I don't protest though, I just ask how much money they want from me. A woman says $20, so I give her the money. Then it occurs to me to ask "$20 for both lots of groceries or $20 each? She says it's $20 each.

      Now I'm really mad. I can't afford $40!

      I need to deliver a mattress to a house on a certain street. The house number is 105.

      I find 104 and joined to it is a janitor type building, then joined to that is 105. A rubbish bin belonging to house 105 the size of a very small bucket with a lid is sitting in front of the janitor building. I pick it up and carry it with me while I knock on the door of 105.

      A shortish young Irishman with dark hair opens the door. He has no accent but I know he's Irish. He seems a tiny bit simple, not quite simple, just a little weird. I place his rubbish bucket down and he and I walk to my van to get his mattress. He refers to the bucket and thanks me for emptying it and says it's very heavy and wonders how I managed it since he can barely manage it himself. I think to myself that I didn't actually empty the bucket... perhaps I should have... I don't say anything.

      We carry his mattress inside and I see what he has been sleeping on. He has used two single mattress side by side. This large mattress is a slight improvement I suppose.

      His wife appears and she is quite attractive. I wonder what an attractive woman like her is doing with this guy. She examines the mattress (which is now suddenly laying on a bed base on top of another mattress. She thinks the mattress I've delivered is too soft. I feel a bit put on the spot and act like I don't know what she means. She tells me to feel it and I do and I admit it is a little soft. I suggest she puts a blanket over the mattress and sleep on top of that to firm it up a little. She looks at me sceptically.

      I look at their house. The walls are all a cold concrete. There is no door to the bathroom, just maze like walls to give a little privacy. The walls are a pale prison green colour. There is a bare sink attached to a wall. The lighting is poor and it is a depressing and desperate place to live.

      I go outside and sit on their steps. Photos of their family are on the outside walls of the building. There is a young blonde girl and an older black girl. Then I see four boys who all look identical but range in age from about ten to eighteen. I am amazed how identical they all look.

      I look at the pictures again, there's a picture of the young girl, the black girl and the mother. And another picture of the four boys and their father. The picture frame of the boys and their father is too small to show them all at once so it moves around like a movie and they all move in and out appearing in random sequences.

      I wonder how the hell such a large family lives in that one bedroom house that has no doors... just cold concrete walls.


      Jealousy

      I meet a guy and he is pretty handsome. He is interested in dating me. I'm not sure if I want a relationship but I don't say no outright. I just maintain a friendship with him.

      He owns a lot of kayaks and I'd like to go kayaking. He doesn't have any kayaks that are suitable for the two of us to go out in though.

      We sit around chatting instead.

      We casually see each other on and off for a few days.

      I am going on a date with him and I select my prettiest white bra and matching underwear. They are very dainty and flattering.

      I over hear my friend telling this guy all about some other girl and singing her praises. I get angry and tell her off for it. She knows this guy and I might be starting something with each other so why is she deliberately getting him interested in someone else?


      My Old Bible

      I'm sitting in a foyer of some sort. There is a procession going on outside and bagpipes are playing. Someone is looking at a trophy board and asks me if I would donate it so it can be used again. It's my old trophy board and I say "Yes, of course."

      The trophy board is taken away and then I notice a bible on a coffee table. It is my old bible. It has a leather protective cover on it. I look at it resentfully. I do not want it.

      My father walks in and I hope he doesn't mention the bible. I don't want to talk about it. He walks past the coffee table, approaches me and then moves to the other side of me. There is a large picture book on a table on the other side of me.

      It is opened at a picture of a large ship. At the front of the ship is a huge golden statue. People on the ship have ropes attached to the statue and are trying to bring it down. It is large and heavy and the people are heaving and straining. A huge golden statue of David's head is sitting on the water in front of the ship.

      My dad looks at the picture and says "I know what bible story that is without even looking it up." I look at it and struggle to recall the exact story. I'm thinking of David and I'm thinking of the statue with feet of iron and clay. But I'm sure the statue with the feet of iron and clay has nothing to do with David so I struggle with remembering which story it is. I say nothing.


      The Prison - Fragments

      I am a prisoner. I want to go to the toilet and have a shower. I find a cubicle and have a shower. When I get out I go to put on my deodorant and a fellow prisoner warns me not to. She tells me if I use my own deodorant I will be punished. I'm to choose a deodorant from the bowl of them on the table.

      I defy her as I think it's nonsense. I use my own deodorant not believing anything bad could happen because of such a petty reason.

      Female prison guards appear from down the corridor. They grab me and take me away to conduct experiments on me.

      I try to pretend to fall asleep so they will stop but they don't.

      Tried another nap:

      Body Slid off the Bed

      Laid down and tried to WILD. Pretty sure I remember experiencing both the body vibration and the buzzing sounds but I'm not 100% sure. Was disrupted a few times by my phone ringing but I ignored it.

      I was trying to concentrate on how my body felt. I was pretty sure it was paralysed but not certain of it. Then my body began to slide off the air bed I was lying on. It's only a drop of about eight inches to the floor. My body continued to slide slowly but purposefully all the way off the bed until my body was laying on the floor next to it.

      I thought that was pretty weird but ok, if that's what my body wanted to do then fine. I just went with it and felt myself laying there comfortably, waiting for the dream to come. I was quite sure I was awake and not dreaming yet.

      Some time later I woke up and was on the bed and realised the above was just a dream. Darn, darn, darn, darn!

      A Chat with Pam

      I had a conversation with Pam, a woman I used to work with a few years ago. I wanted to know what had happened to some of the other people who don't work there anymore. I had recently looked up their website and noticed some people were gone. In particular, the boss's wife!

      She told me the boss's wife had run off with her female gym instructor.

      As I was talking to Pam I got the impression she worked with me at my current job. I was struggling to understand how I was talking to her about the old job but she also worked with me now. I knew this wasn't correct and I just couldn't get it to make any sense.

      Perhaps I was close to picking up it was a dream sign.


      Lunch Shout

      I walked down a street and into a local shop selling sandwiches. It was my birthday shout. I ordered all sorts of different sandwhiches, beef, ham, vegetarian. I wanted everyone to have something they would like.

      I also ordered some custard squares and some caramel slice. Yum!

      I handed my money over to the shop attendant. I handed over a $20 bill but it was purple instead of green and the "paint" was flecking off of it.

      I assured the shop keeper the money would be accepted at the bank and wrote my phone number on it so he could call me if it "bounced".

      We compared the $20 with a $40 note. Missing dream signs everywhere. That was purple too, but the paint wasn't flecking off.

      He seemed satisfied. I asked him to look after my purchases while I went down the road to find more variety food to add to my birthday shout.


      Motorbike Breakdown

      I was riding my motorbike on a road more suited to a trail bike. I was in front and others (including my parents) were behind me in cars.

      My motorbike started to cough and choke like it was out of gas. Then it broke down completely and I needed to drift to a stop very carefully. I am short (5'4") and my motorbike is large and heavy and I don't want to drop it.

      I pull over and another old fuddy duddy dude comes over to me and says my bike is dangerous and is badly broken down.

      I am irritated at his intrusion. I look down and see the choke is still all the way out and I have been riding it like that for ages. I point out that this is the cause of my break down and it is only a minor problem.


      Chocolate Kiss - Fragment

      I was hiding in a building. There are nurses. Guns are involved.

      A woman (that I am not at all attracted to) puts chocolate in her mouth. She chews it up, then without swallowing it she comes over to me and kisses me passionately so there is chocolate and her tongue in my mouth.

      It was disgusting and most foul.

      False Awakenings, how frustrating to be so close!

      Man, your recall is kicking butt. Cool how you categorized all your dream signs. I need to do that.

      Dream about Lucid Dreaming

      Can't remember anything about it though. Not even a fragment. Brilliant, lol.


      The Boy and his Vicious Pigs

      I'm watching a boy of about seventeen years old. He has some pigs with dispositions and behaviour more like lions. He works with them, like a lion tamer.

      One of the pigs is badly injured. He takes it to hospital in his ambulance. He hangs meat from the ceiling of the ambulance to keep the pig occupied during the trip. The pig lays on its back and viciously attacks the meat.

      The boy lays on his back in a bunk bed next to the pig. He has his hand resting on the pig in a loving gesture. His other hand is on his forehead. He has bandages around his head.

      The pig suddenly rages out of control and gets violent. The boy tames him down using strength, body language and loving discipline.

      In the next scene I'm watching the boy is with two pigs in a fenced in area. The chainlink fence is about two metres high. The pigs are viciously attacking the boy. He's bleeding and the pigs chase him relentlessly.

      The boy moves swiftly around the area. He throws himself up the fence and around the "ring". He is being cut from the fencing wire but he continues to move quickly up and over and out to safety.

      I think to myself "That is survival. If you want to survive you have to push through the pain of your efforts to get away. If you can't push through the pain of escape, then you'll have to put up with the pain of the animals (or whatever it is you're running from) tearing you apart.


      Brignal at the Grocery Store

      I line up at a checkout counter at a grocery store. I have only boring (healthy) things in my trolley. I want some chocolate. I can't quite find the right thing that I fancy.

      I see Brignal ahead of me. He only has a few items and they are hidden under a tea towel. There is a girl in line after him and then me.

      We leave the grocery store and meet outside.

      We are moaning about the price of groceries. Brignal is indignant. He thinks we have no reason to complain, he paid $60 for his and he can survive the week on that.

      We are waiting for rides. Him and the girl hop in a vehicle and I cross the road to wait for my ride. Their vehicle nearly runs me over but I am not at all worried, I saw it coming and though it only missed me by millimetres I was in complete control of the event. He apologies and I am embarrassed and brush it off. He doesn't realise I was in control of the situation.

      I catch a bus and ride away.


      The Bus, the Catty Girls and the Exam

      I'm on a bus with a whole lot of adult female students. There is a clique.

      Some are not in the clique. One girl makes a phone call, intending to talk to another in the clique about someone not in the clique. But she accidentally phones the girl not in the clique. She hangs up irritated.

      I gather my exam papers and start filling out the answers. Some girl in a seat up ahead has filled in some of the answers on my sheet. I'm annoyed. I can do this myself and now the tutor will think I cheated.

      I show the workings in my answers in an effort to show I understood the questions and to explain how I arrived at my answers.


      Looking up the Boy and His Pigs on the Internet

      I am at a computer and googling the boy and his pigs so I can show my mother.

      I think he's amazing.

      I can't find him anywhere on the internet.
