      Could be. But at least they have to remember that they met and what they talked about. That doesn't happen.

      I've tried to share dream with my husband a few times. I found him in my LDs, told him it was a dream, stayed beside him, asked stupid questions. I did everything to get noticed and to wake up his mind. But every time he told me that he didn't even see me in his dreams... Don't know what to think. And he has very vivid dreams and usually remember his early morning dreams.

      That's a good idea!
      No, they haven't tried that yet. I'll tell them.
      Thank you

      Do you sleep at the same time to share dream?

      Yes, but not that easily! Let's use the two examples we have so far, the ficus tree, and the Tower.

      The banyan tree excerpt from my lucid DJ:

      I also looked at my hands saying, "Look at your hands. This is a dream. Make a tornado."

      Tornado Dream #1:
      ( Third person perspective ) I am inside my dream house, a living house made from a banyan tree. I sleep in an egg shape made of banyan tree roots. The banyan tree is on a steep mountainside in Hawaii. I look like a creature in that movie Wizards, or a character by the graffiti artist Katch 1 whose art I just looked at on Saturday. I stick my head out of my egg/room and see a giant dark grey almost black tornado on the plain.


      A friend who is a bit of an American sadhu, and I came up with the idea for a living house. This is something I want to grow in waking life. I thought of this in order to have a place, a kind of jumping off point for all my dreams.

      When I started having shared dreams with Raven Knight, the jumping off point became the Moon.

      When our dreams kept getting interrupted by the revolting Mr. Tooth, we simultaneously desired a fortress on the moon to keep out unwanted entities. I think she mentioned it in her DJ, but I was already thinking the same thing.

      The Tower appeared, and to my delight, my living house appeared beneath it. I think it has to do with the idea of having a jumping off point, a place to meet to begin dreams, though the Tower was her idea and mine (given to us by the one she perceives as Q), and the tree was my idea, but got transferred to the moon.

      I myself try to share dream with others, but, unfortunately, without any success. It could be because my partners weren't lucid at that time or I use a wrong technique. Besides I've never tried to share dream on the Moon... May be that is the right place!

      Do all of your shared dreams happen on the Moon? Have you tried other places with the same success?

      A couple people from my Russian Lucid Dream Forum have been trying to share dream for a long time. And no luck! They get lucid, look for each other behind doors, find, talk. But later they discover that both of them saw different dreams. Nothing was shared. Do you guys know what the problem is? May be Raven Knight as the most experienced among us can give a clue?
      We tried Stonehenge once, but, I got intercepted my Selene, and when Raven looked for me, I wasn't there. At this point I didn't know it was Selene. We probably could meet somewhere else, but now the Moon is so ingrained in our minds, so familiar that it gets easier every time.

      Maybe their dream was shared but they don't realize it. I'd need more detail to form an opinion.

      You will be able to do that easily, because you think it's badass. So do I! If and idea doesn't excite or interest you, you probably can't do it. Example: I had a harder time doing the simple task of the month because it was boring to me, while the advanced one was easier, because it excited me.

      But the differences between each dream are always related in an archtypical manner.


      WakingNomad, could you include links to RavenKnights DJ so it will be easier too find the corresponding dream her her DJ? I've having trouble synching up your dreams.
      Yeah. I just thought of that today.

      Quote Originally Posted by DreamIsLife View Post

      The only thing we all can do there (on my forum) is to see in a dream the right appearance of the person we've never ever seen (even on the photograph). In our LDs we find each other, remember the appearance (age, height, hair color, eyes color, etc), then wake up and compare. In most cases the found DCs look like those persons that we intended to find. So, we find the correct persons and they don't remember it!
      Probably, the reason for this lays in weak lucidity. When one is lucid, another is not lucid. It's hard to get lucid at the same time. But anyways, we remember not lucid dreams too. Why are those "supposed to be shared" dreams not remembered? This situation is kind of strange and disappointing.
      There are many possibilities. Lack of recall may be one. A lack of lucidity may be another. Another thing is apparently you are coming from the paradigm that your dream body looks like your waking life body. I have never seen a picture of Raven Knight's physical face. It doesn't matter. We recognize each other by energy signature. I always see her as a woman dressed in a white tunic, pants, and leather boots, wearing a cape and cowl, with a sword on her hip. I tried to focus on her face once, and I couldn't see it clearly.

      Instead of trying to see the person, and get there physical characteristics, I think it would be easier just to try and go to the same place, and do the same thing with them.

      Are your husband's dreams lucid? If not, he may not recognize you. I don't think we always share dreams at the exact same time.

      Man of Shred and I have had one non-lucid shared dream, but he recognized me, but I did not recognize him, or Selene. I had another lucid dream of him, that he has no recollection of.

      Again, not trying to be rude, but the logical, scientific part of me is breaking out again. How can you two be sure you don't just have dreams with one another, and your mind pieces together a probable solution to the dream? For instance, maybe you're just predicting what Raven would do in the dream scenario based on what you know about her... actually, the shared dream theory makes more sense, but can you still be sure?

      Ask away...

      Question away... it's not rude, it's a way of learning and discovering. I suppose there is no concrete way to prove we are sharing a dream aside from our similar dream journals. As for predicting what the other one would do in a dream, I don't think we've known each other long enough for that to happen. If that happend with best friends I would agree that it is possible we could predict each other's behavior. But we just met on this forum only three and a half weeks ago! He has done things in the dreams that I would have never thought of him doing and I have done things he didn't known I could do. These things would indicate to me it is a real shared dream.

      I don't get offended by people being skeptical of what I know to be true. People only get offended they don't know if their "beliefs" are true, because then they have to question something they base their life on which may be a lie.

      Please, you don't need to apologize.

      Anyway, these dreams are waaaaaaaaaaaay too complex to be pieced together by two subconscious minds. I could see maybe if two best friends dreamed about doing something simple as eating pizza, but we are having shared dreams repeatedly with long involved plots.

      You just gotta try it man!!! It's amazing! But, it's also very sobering. Once you realize you are sharing a dream with a real person, you realize you can negatively impact them, and it's not some kind of imagination-land all in your head where morals don't exist.

      Then, once you realize that you must be open to the possibilities that other entities you encounter in dreams may be real, and that the dream world itself may be another dimension.

      We are all magical beings. We Lucid Dreamers have just scratched the surface of mastering ancient magic. Funny thing about magic: you can explain it in scientific terms, and it may very well be proven by science one day, but it exists regardless if you believe in it or not.

He chuckled and said no, this is literally a dream. He said to wake up and become lucid. I looked into Spike's eyes and realized I was dreaming…

      Spike and I were on the moon. Nothing else seemed to be going on. I spotted a woman. She saw us and came over. She asked if we had seen Nomad. I said no. I said he had probably been delayed by Chicken-Wuss. I said Chicken-Wuss is a glutton for punishment. It seems he just can't get his ass kicked enough. I said Nomad would make quick work of Chicken-Wuss and he should be here soon. As if on cue a portal opened and Nomad came through. He wasn't alone. He was being followed by three strange creatures. One looked like a giant bird thing. A second one looked like a dinosaur of some kind. The third one looked like a giant squid. Nomad landed near us. I asked him who his friends were. He said they weren't friends. I said I hadn't figured they were… I said I had the dibs on the flying type! I was thinking about pokémon battles and was certain flying type would be weak against lightning. I jumped into the air and took flight. I used the song Battery by Metallica to summon a bolt of lightning on the bird creature. The lightning hit the bird right in the face. The bird squawked and fell to the ground. It immediately righted itself and darted at me. I blocked the bird's beak with my Witchblade armor. I formed it into a sword and charged the sword with electricity. I attacked the bird again. This time I flew up on top of the creature and drove my sword directly into its head. I pulled the sword out of the bird's head and sliced through its neck to make sure the job was finished. My sword went about half way through the bird's neck. Spike was on the other side of the bird, also with a sword. He sliced the bird's neck the rest of the way through, effectively decapitating it. The bird's head fell to the ground and the bird fell over dead.

      A foul odor reached my nose. I wondered if the bird thing had a foul odor when dead. I was thinking there seem to be a lot more instances where I would rather forgo dream smelling than instances where I enjoy it. I held my nose. That did no good. I turned just in time to see a huge Nomad slice what appeared to be a puking Chicken-Wuss in half once and then again. Chicken-Wuss exploded in a rain of goop. Nomad landed on the ground and made a small crater. I went over to where he was. His energy was wrong. I had the idea his energy was unstable. I asked if he was ok. He seemed to be in a trance. He finally said Chicken-Wuss had followed him. He looked really pissed. I figured he was just frustrated with Chicken-Wuss. I thought maybe we could get his mind off of that. I asked if he wanted to see his new space ship at the tower. He perked up immediately and said yes.

      We teleported to the landing bay. There was a sleek silver ship there next to my Fire Valkyrie. An entry melted into the side as if the silver was fluid. I smelled a foul odor. It was coming from Nomad. I was about to ask if he had cut one when I looked and saw Nomad was covered with slime. Spike was also covered with slime. We had all been slimed. I used a wave of energy to clear the slime off of us. I thought that must have happened when Chicken-Wuss exploded. Now we went into Nomad's new ship. The entrance melted closed behind us. The interior looked like the ship on Flight of the Navigator. Nomad took the controls and we flew out of the landing bay at high speeds. We were zipping around on the moon making all sorts of cool maneuvers. I was thinking it was more fun than any rollercoaster. I happened to look at Nomad. He was wounded. There was a cut on his arm that was maggot infested. I asked Nomad what had happened. He said he hadn't seen that injury. I focused on healing it. Nomad responded by changing form. He transformed into a giant minotaur. His new form ripped right through the hull of his new space ship. I could tell he hadn't done that deliberately. I used Of Wolf and Man by Metallica, directing the spell at him to transform him back to his normal form. I asked what was wrong. He said he couldn't control it. The ship started repairing itself and was soon back in one piece.

      The voice of the ship spoke. It told Nomad to go into a scanning pod. He did and it began scanning him. His energy was definitely unstable. There was a strange growth where it shouldn't have been. The computer highlighted that. Nomad asked what it was. The computer said it was a parasite that feeds on negative energy. It said it could remove it but Nomad would have to be careful or it could come back. Stay calm for a while and it won't return. A small laser focused on the growth and burned it away. I asked Nomad how he felt. He took out a plant. I didn't recognize the plant. He said it was for healing. He set it down. I looked at the plant for a bit. Nomad said he felt better. He said he wanted to find more dream warriors. I was losing the dream. I said I would be back if I could, but now I was about to wake up. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.
      Dream Warriors (WILD)

      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      Damn you, Chicken-Wuss
      As I fell asleep, I focused on the moon.
      I was in outer space. I knew what this meant: Chicken-Wuss was going to attack me. "Dammit!" I thought, "I am so sick of this bastard!"

      I created a portal in front of me. I felt one of Chicken-Wuss's tentacles wrap around my ankle.
      "Gaah!" I cut it off with my green lightsaber, and went through.


      missing time

      I had other dreams, woke up, went back to sleep, focusing on the moon.

      Monster Battle

      I fell through a purple vortex portal, and landed on the moon. Three giant monsters fell through after me. There was the red demon from my dream before, some blue bird-like thing, and and a greenish black monster like an octopus with short tentacles, and one huge eye. "What the hell?" I thought. I knew that Raven, Spike, and Selene were there, and were going to immediately attack the monsters.

      I didn't bother hesitating either. I leaped up on top of the octopus monster, and plunged my lightsaber into its eye. Then, I jumped back down, and ran in a circle, around it, cutting off all its tentacles. I turned on my force field, and flew right through it, with my lightsaber in front of me, creating a huge hole in it. The monster turned into a bunch of little green worms, and tried to crawl into the cracks in the ground.

      I summoned my golden dragon, and he breathed fire on all the worms, burning them to crisps, then he disappeared.

      I saw the others fighting giant monsters in a city in the distance. "What the hell is this? A Godzilla movie?" I thought to myself. There were two monsters, the demon, and the bird-thing. Raven and Selene were whizzing around in the air, shooting bolts of fire and moonlight at the monsters, and Spike was running back and forth between them at superspeed, wielding two short swords, slicing them up, leaping up on to them, stabbing them, then flipping off.

      I morphed into Otherme. I was wearing jeans, shirtless, and barefoot, instead of my usual white desert nomad clothes. Long red spikes protruded from my body. I put my arms out at my sides and closed my eyes. Dozens of cute little blue parakeets landed on my arms.

      The red demon turned and looked at me. "Oh, that ol' gag?" he laughed. I launched the parakeets into the air, and they morphed into an impossibly huge sky blue blade, floating horizontally in the sky. I could still see the parakeets inside the blade, wings spread, perfectly still, looking straight ahead. I felt an inner rage come over me.

      I morphed in a giant minotaur, and grabbed the handle of the blade. It was so huge, at first it was hard to tell it was actually a great sword. I ran at the demon, roaring with a dark fury. I raised my sword, and brought it down slicing him in half vertically. I spun around, and sliced the other monster in half. His pieces turned into a bunch of little demons. I multiplied myself into dozens of small minotaurs, leaping down on the little demons, and stabbing them in the crown of their heads.

      I somersaulted out of the city, and the buildings faded and disappeared. Then, I sensed Tooth (aka Chicken-Wuss) above me. I turned on my force field. He rained down a torrent of something disgusting. It was like he was vomiting maggots on me. His maggots just bounce off, and slid down the side of my force field. I looked at him above me. He had jet boots on his feet, and was slowly descending to the surface of the moon. "A zombie with jet boots? How ridiculous!" I thought. My minotaur eyes glowed red with anger. I had enough of him interfering in my dreams.

      I jumped straight up at him. He was surprised by my fury. I sliced him in half with my budgie sword, then again horizontally. He changed into a bunch of little worms. I summoned a swarm of ravens, and they gobbled up all the worms.

      Raven walked over to me. I changed back into my Nomad form, but I was still holding my sky blue sword, breathing heavily. My eyes glowed red, and steam rose from my skin.

      Raven Knight clapped me on the back, "So, when did you become such a- Nomad?"
      She looked at me concerned. I was gazing off into nothingness. "Nomad, are you okay?"
      "Huh? Yeah. I just..." I shook my head, and turned back into my nomad self. "I'm fine. Thanks."
      "Okay," she said, doubtfully. "What the hell was that?"
      "I guess Tooth followed me... but he was here afterward. Those monsters, I think we are attracting them as our powers increase. Maybe they are his little friends."
      "Hmm," she pondered. "Let's go to the tower."


      We teleported into the control room.
      "So do you want to see-eyew!" said Raven. "Look at us." We were all covered with slimy ectoplasm. Music came out of her, and a healing fire came from above, burning all the slime off of us. "Mm, that's better," she said. "So, do you want to see your spaceship?" she asked me.

      Losin' It
      "Hell, yeah!" I said. We immediately were inside a silver spaceship. The insides of it were perfectly curved and smooth, with no straight lines. I sat down in the pilot's chair. "Like in Flight of the Navigator!" she smiled.
      "Right!" I laughed. "This is the kind of the Greys have."

      I started flying the ship telepathically, spinning it around, and making it do all kinds of crazy maneuvers. I looked down at my right arm for some reason. There was a big gash on my forearm, with little green parasites squirming about in it. "Gyaah! What the hell is this?" Raven looked at the wound, and did some type of fire spell on it. I was freaked out by the maggot things. I started shapeshifting uncontrollably. "Nomad, what's going on?"

      "I can't-"
      "Focus!" she yelled at me.
      Her voice sounded strange and distant, my vision blurred and faded. I felt like I was going insane.

      RAAA! I morphed into a giant lava minotaur, bursting through the skin of the ship. "What is wrong with me?" I roared. Raven shot a beam of purple flame at me, glowing orange at the tips. I shrunk down, and returned to normal.

      I went back down into the ship, and the hole I made instantly closed, as if it was healing itself. Selene's face was pale. She was freaked out. Spike looked mildly annoyed.

      "Go to the back of the ship," said the ship in my head. I stepped on to a glowing lavender circle, that looked like it was glowing through the deck. I changed into my energy form. The ship's energy started moving all around me, like an energy shower. I saw my nervous system in my energy body. For some reason, I was a lavender color, though previously I was always green. Lightning came down, and flowed through me. I saw a little green worm in the back of my skull.

      "What is that? Can't you get rid of it?" I asked the ship.
      "No, only you can. That is your rage. Do not fear it, and it will weaken and disappear in time," said the ship to me in my head.
      I morphed back into my nomad self. I knew at that point that I was okay.

      I summoned a cannabis plant. "What's that for?" said Raven.
      "Good medicine!" I smiled
      . "I'll just keep that for later use." (Gauntlet reference.) She laughed and shook her head.
      "Ah!" I sighed. "Now, I am better! So where shall we go? Let's visit the alien greys! No, let's have a space adventure! No, no. Let's find other dream warriors like us. I think it's important."
      "You're right," said Raven seriously. Selene smiled, and Spike smirked as I sat back down in the pilot's seat.
      "Here we go!" I said. I focused on finding other dream warriors, and kicked my ship into warp drive.

      Very interesting to read. Makes me want to show more respect to the dream characters in my dream as they may be real people from time to time. I'll look for you guys but I rarely make it to the moon. Been there once, maybe twice. And when I did I never saw anyone else on it. To comment further: One reason it may be difficult to share dreams is that people may be dreaming in/of different alternate universes. I know I've told my friends in dreams that it's a dream, remember it, wake up and write it down and tell me you remember it tomorrow if you do. Never works I never get anything from them the next day. One thing you 2 might be doing is that you've managed to enter/be concious of the same alternate universe through intent.

Spike said to make sure the second seat was open… he was coming over. I said fine. Spike appeared in the seat behind me in my Fire Valkyrie. He leaned over the seat and kissed me on my cheek. I asked Spike where we were going. Spike said Q had located a colony of dream warriors here. He said we were going to check it out. That triggered me to set my sound system to play Dream Warriors by Dokken. It just seemed appropriate.

      Note: Somewhere my lucidity slipped to semi-lucid...

      We soon arrived at the outpost of the dream warriors. They had an amazing city set up. The city looked like something that would be seen in a dream. We flew to a small area where we were able to land our ships. Spike and I got out and I saw Nomad and Selene get out of the other ship. A strange man came over to us. He was tall and slender, not human. He said he had been told we were interested in dream warriors. He showed us to a strange silver building. We went in through the door. I saw him saying something to Nomad but I didn't hear what.

      The room in the building was round. There was a chair in the center of the room. There were some people sitting around the edge of the room. I noticed the individual at the center chair looked like Yoda from Star Wars. I did a double take. I had not figured Yoda to be a dream warrior. Yoda called Nomad forward. They were talking for a bit and then Nomad left. Yoda turned his attention to me. I went over to him. He said here I would learn the ways of the dream warrior. He looked at me strangely and told me to gaze into a bowl he had. I looked in. There were images flowing around. It looked like a pensive from the Harry Potter books. I saw some images of me briefly and then it went hazy. Yoda looked a bit puzzled. He looked at me again. He said there was clearly more to me than the bowl was ready to show. He said all would be revealed in time. Spike came up next. It looked like Spike had to work hard not to cop a serious attitude with Yoda. Yoda seemed to ignore that. They spoke momentarily and then Yoda spoke with Selene. Yoda said now it was time to see what we have.

      The next instant the four of us were in an arena. There was a large rock golem. Nomad immediately transformed into a large minotaur and charged it. He ran smack into it with a CRASH! It looked painful… for Nomad. He fell to the ground and I could practically imagine stars and birds circling his head as in a cartoon. I told him to try attacking the enemy with blunt weapons other than his own head. Witchblade formed into a large mace. Spike pounded the ground and created a shockwave worthy of the Hulk. Nomad hit the golem's leg with a hammer. The golem tried to crush me under one of its hands. I dodged and hit the hand with my mace. Selene was halfway up the creature. When she got to the top she ran a sword into one of its eyes. Spike sent another shockwave and the creature collapsed into dust. The scene around me changed…

      I was in a graveyard now. I wondered where everyone else had gone. The ground was shaking. A large crack opened in the ground and a large hand reached out. Fire was erupting from the crack. I wondered what was happening. A large ugly thing came out. It's face looked a bit like Freddy Krueger. It was obviously a dream demon. Aside from its face it didn't look like Freddy. It looked like a giant insect. A ten foot cockroach with Freddy Krueger's face. I formed Witchblade into a sword and went at the dream demon. I sliced it right through the middle. It split in two… and then it formed two giant cockroaches. Both of them had Freddy's face and were laughing. They both grew to ten feet in height. Both of them spoke at once. They said they could not be killed. Strike them down again and there would just be more of them. I used Damage, Inc. to throw fireballs at one of the insects. It blasted apart… into 5 pieces… and formed 5 more giant cockroaches. Ok… this was getting a bit out of hand. I needed to drain its power. It was a dream demon… so I needed to be a dream warrior. I focused on the song Dream Warriors by Dokken. I could hear the song playing. As the song was playing the giant cockroaches didn't seem to like it. They were covering their Freddy Krueger ears with their insect legs. The giant insects began to shrink down. I focused the song on draining them even further. Finally I was facing six cockroach sized dream demons. I stepped on one of them and it made a satisfying crunch. And this time it didn't reform. The other cockroaches ran for cover. I threw a small fireball at each one and it was incinerated before it could reach cover. None of them reformed.

      Then I was back in the arena with Yoda. Yoda looked at me closely. He said I had obviously done this before. He asked why I was really here. I said I was just there to fight dream demons. He eyed me closely. He said he could see that was the truth, but it was clearly not all of the truth. He asked what I saw him as. I said Yoda from Star Wars. The Jedi master. He nodded thoughtfully. I asked if that was his true form. He said he has no true form. Everyone perceives him differently. I didn't question him further.

      Nomad was saying he wanted to show us his tree house. I said ok. I opened a portal to get back. Nomad asked what about our ships. I said Q would bring them back. I didn't know if I could hold the dream long enough to get back to the moon by space ship. On the other side of my portal we were in a strange room. There were lots of plants there. I didn't recognize them. Nomad said it was his greenhouse. We teleported again. Now we were in a large room. It was a comfortable looking room. I said it was nice in there. Nomad said he wanted a joint. I asked what is the point of smoking a joint in a dream. I said I had to go wake up. He said goodbye. I saw Selene snuggle up next to Nomad just before I woke.
      Planet of the Dream Warriors
      We landed on a planet in a beautiful city. There was a small landing pad, with stairs going down it. We stepped out of the ship. It looked like we landed in the center of a park. The place was full of colorful plants, and strange pastel towers reaching to the sky. There were people milling about. Before us was a beige walkway. There was a small group of people that clapped and waved at us as we stepped off the ship.

      A tall alien in a long white robe, with long sleeves and a tall hat, with some cloth hanging at the sides, stepped out from the welcoming committee and greeted us. He had wrinkled pink skin, a long face with no cheeks, a small mouth, no nose, and small intense eyes.

      "Why can I see his face so clearly, and not Raven's?" was my first thought.
      "Welcome," said the alien, "to the planet of the Dream Warriors. We have been expecting you. Come with me."

      As we followed him down the path, I looked around at the city. There were all types of races milling about. Some looked at us curiously, some gave us no heed. "I feel like I'm on Oa!" I thought. I instinctively morphed into a Green Lantern.

      Our guide turned to me and chuckled. "Yes, this is like Oa," he said, "but this is not. Keep that ring." I looked down at the Green Lantern ring on my finger. "When your imagination is too great to use to become a form, channel the power into your ring, and use it to defeat your enemies.
      "
      I morphed back into my nomad self. I noticed the others were also walking around wide-eyed.

      The alien walked quickly ahead of us on the path, then suddenly morphed into a giant metallic spider-like structure. It was startling.
      "Do not be surprised," he said, "you are in the land of dreams. Now, step into my mouth."

      We walked into his mouth, and were suddenly in a dome shaped chamber made of stone, dimly lit by firelight. There was a group of people sitting in a semicircle on wooden chairs. In the center of the circle, was a stand with a pool of water.

      There was a creature sitting in the center chair, who looked like the Devil. He had smooth red skin, goat legs, the face of a man, and bull horns. "Step forward, Dream Warrior," he commanded Raven Knight. She stepped forward and stood before the water. "In your world, you are a Queen. Now you are an Apprentice. Gaze into the water." She looked down, and her eyes grew huge.

      I looked around the room. "I can't believe this is happening. Is this real? Are we actually in the realm of the Dream Warriors?" The devil person said something else to Raven, but I wasn't paying attention.
      "Step forward, Dream Warrior," he commanded me, "In your world, you are a king, here, you are an Apprentice. Now, gaze into the water."
      I looked down in the water, and saw scenes of past lives, torment, pain, anger, rage, love, war, death, agony. It was overwhelming. I saw future lives where I will be non-human races. The future life scenes were blurry and obscured. Then, I saw a great lemniscate in outer space. All the Dream Warriors that have ever lived, and ever will live, were making up the great lemniscate. I felt they were all moving through me, and I was moving through all of them. I felt pain, joy, and anguish. Everything was getting smaller and bigger simultaneously. We were all infinite.
      I looked up at the devil man. "What did you see?" he asked.
      "Everything and nothing," I said. He almost imperceptibly smiled and nodded.
      "Step to the side," he commanded me. I stepped over to the side, and two people placed some type of cloth over my shoulders, which draped down over my chest.

      Next he called Spike who stepped forward sneered. The devil-man seemed as if Spike's contempt didn't bother him.
      I didn't really pay much attention to their exchange because I was still thinking about what I had seen in the water.

      Then, the devil-man called forth Selene. "Yes, Father," she said.
      "Father?" I thought, "this is getting too weird. Is that a title?"
      Again, I didn't pay much attention to their exchange, so overwhelmed I was by everything.

      "Here you will commence your training. And now we battle!" said the devil man.

      Training in the Dome
      The four of us were suddenly in a great dome with a dirt floor. A rock giant made of boulders stood before us. I morphed into a minotaur, and charged it. It was like slamming into a wall.
      "Use blunt weapons!" yelled Raven.
      Great hammers appeared in the hands of Raven, Selene and I.
      "We should use earth attacks!" I shouted back. Spike was already wielding great metal fists, pounding the ground, sending shockwaves at the monster, and it wavered. I slammed my hammer into its right ankle with a loud crack!
      Selene ran up its leg, and on to its back, going boom boom boom on the way up with her hammer. She got to its face, then plunged a sword into its right eye. It roared in pain and anger.
      ShhK-BOOM! ShhK-BOOM! Spike sent shockwaves at the rock giant. His right ankle broke and crumbled, then his left, and it fell to the ground and disappeared.

      A great fire elemental appeared before me, hissing, with a devious grin on its face. I looked around for my friends. They were gone. "Are you afraid?" a disembodied voice asked mockingly. I ignored the voice, and morphed into a water elemental, then charged at it. Its heat changed me into steam, then it laughed at me.
      I summoned my water dragon, and now it was full grown. It looked like an Eastern dragon, with a Western dragon's head. I merged with the water dragon, and we wrapped ourselves around the fire elemental, like a constrictor serpent. It was contained, but not defeated. It tried to turn us into steam, but we were too powerful. "What else do I need to do?" I thought, getting frustrated.
      "Aha!" I saw a little pile of fuel, like charcoal that it was coming out of, like a genie coming out of a lamp. I separated from my water dragon, then, as a water elemental, I sliced through the fire elemental's tail with my hand. I morphed back into human form, and stomped on the fuel.
      The fire elemental screamed for a second, then disappeared, and my water dragon was gone.

      A lightning elemental appeared in front of me. "I know how to handle this," I thought. I became a water elemental again, and as he tried to shock me, I channeled his attacks right back to him, but it did nothing. I changed into a mountain, and tried to do a physical attack against it. It just kept shocking me. I changed into a great tree, and it split me in half. "Why am I doing this?" I thought, "this didn't work against Zeus."
      I changed into a giant rubber ball. The lightning elemental seemed confused. It's attacks did nothing to me now. I opened up a mouth slowly, and swallowed it. I could feel it bouncing around angrily inside me, then it dissipated.

      The devil man appeared in front of me, towering above looking terrible and evil. His eyes glowed yellow. He chortled. He flexed his fists, cracking his knuckles. He picked me up, and swallowed me. I let my rubber ball self roll down his throat, and when I got to his stomach, I started bouncing, bouncing, bouncing, harder and faster, until I broke through his flesh. I bounced harder and faster off the sides of the dome, until I was bouncing as fast as a bullet, putting holes in him from all directions. His eyes bugged out. OOF! He gasped, and the battle was over.

      He returned to normal size. Smoke rose from his skin. "So why do you look like The Devil?" I asked.
      "Because you're a fool!!!" he answered derisively, then disappeared.

      Going Home

      We were back in my silvery spaceship, as it attached itself to the tower.
      Raven looked at me. "Wow," she said quietly. I nodded. For the first time, i saw Raven's face. She had a kind heart shaped face, gentle eyes, that were slowly changing color, from blue to grey to hazel to violet. Her shimmering hair hanging down at the sides was ash blond, with streaks of lavender, pink, and pastel blue. She had fair skin, and light freckles across her cheeks, a small pointed upturned nose, and a small mouth.
      My cannabis plant sprouted little legs, and walked over to me, and nuzzled up against me like a dog.
      "What the hell?" she laughed.
      "What? It likes me." I pet it.

      We were standing back on the moon, looking at the tower. Now there was a black wall around it, made of a shiny black stone, with Tesla coils built at intervals. The Tesla coils made a dome-shaped force field over the Tower. We walked in the front gate. Near my ficus tree was a mango tree, a starfruit tree, and other plants growing around it, spreading across the ground. "A biodome," Raven whispered.
      "Yeah!" I smiled. "Hey, let's go look at my house!" I said.
      We teleported into an indoor greenhouse, shaped like an egg, its wall made of living wood. "And this," I said, "Is my greenhouse!" as we walked between rows and rows of cannabis plants. Raven laughed again. "You are ridiculous." I broke a flower bud off of a plant.

      We teleported into the Great Room, the room with the couch going around it. "Wow, it's really beautiful in here," said Raven.
      "So..." I said, "anyone want to smoke a joint?"

      "No!" laughed Raven, "you know I'm not into that stuff!" I looked down in my hands, sat down, focusing on rolling my joint. Selene grinned at me.
      "It really is pretty in here," said Raven quietly. "Thank you," I replied.
      Raven disappeared.

      "I don't really care for that shit, but I could use a cigarette, mate," said Spike. I summoned a rolled cigarette and handed it to Spike. "Thanks, mate," he nodded, with the cigarette already in his mouth. He withdrew a lighter from his pocket and lit up.
      He looked at me, and barely smiled, then disappeared.

      I took a lighter out of my pocket, and lit the joint, taking a good puff. Then, I handed it to Selene. She took a puff, smiled and handed it back. I leaned back in the couch, and put my arm around her. I took another puff. "Ah, dream weed," I thought, "I actually feel high. Haha!"
      Selene snuggled up next to me and sighed. I looked up at a window, and saw moonlight pouring in.
      "Life is good," I said half to myself, half to her. "I want to stay in this dream for a little while longer."
      "But, I don't want you to forget it," she said, as she caressed my chest.
      The dream faded, and I awoke.

      That's been a dream (no pun intended) of mine for a while. A living, growing house... THAT'S where our millions of tax dollars should be going. You could make a sustaining environment- water collected from the roots, fruits from the tree. Think of the millions of lives that could benefit from having clean fruit, water, and shelter. You, my friend, have a beautiful imagination. As for the weed... nice touch.

      Also, you said you could potentially negatively impact someone in the "dream realm". Is this that secret magic you mentioned learning from your DG? Personally, I don't want to know how I could harm someone, but rather how to protect myself from danger. I don't know if you want to discuss it on the public forum, or even with me, but maybe send me a technique to protect myself over PM, if that is indeed what you meant?

      Growing houses, yes, that is my dream. To do it myself, and to encourage other to do it also. A living house will have a foundation and structure that gets stronger every year, and be 100% green. No building materials needed, only time and supports for the roots to grow as they come down from the branches to from new trunks.

      I don't know what you mean by water from the roots. A cachement system? Unfortunately banyan trees do not have edible fruit, but other trees actually grow inside them.

      There are many ways you can negatively impact someone in the dreamworld. It's based on energy. If you want to see two examples, look at what I did to Selene trying to make her lucid, and creating a near paradox by my selfishness. And then, a couple nights ago, my rage infested me, and I flipped out, and blew out of my ship. You can hurt other in the dreamworld with such negative things as rage and selfishness, just as you can in waking life.

      The secret magic is another way to battle enemies in emergencies.

      I do know how to cause pain, but I don't want to ever do that to a person, just as in waking life.

      The best way to protect yourself is to have purity of spirit. You will be given all that you need for free.

      I was on the moon. I wasn't lucid. I looked around to see where I was. It didn't seem at all odd for me to be on the moon. I started walking on the moon. I wondered when the Earth would rise. I wanted to see the full Earth in the sky. I hadn't walked far before I heard something odd. I turned and looked behind me. I was being dive bombed by a giant bird! A giant bird on the moon?! I threw myself to the ground to avoid the diving bird. It swooped over me and I felt the wind as it passed. Wind on the moon?! That didn't seem right, either. I got up after the bird passed… and I was almost plowed down by a charging dinosaur. WTF? I watched the dinosaur after it passed me. A man was coming now. It was Spike!

      "Snap out of it, luv!" he yelled as he ran past, "You're dreaming!"


      Spike jumped up and landed on the back of the rampaging dinosaur. I saw a woman was in the sky and she came down on the dinosaur's head. I realized the woman was Selene. I saw the giant bird was coming back. It was a flying type. I should use electricity to attack it. I used Battery by Metallica to summon a bolt of lightning to hit the bird directly in the head. The bird did a face plant into the moon dust. Spike landed on the bird's back and buried a sword in its head. I saw Selene drive a sword through the eye of the dinosaur. Turning around I saw Nomad standing next to what could only be described as a pile of calamari.

      Something was descending from above. I looked up and saw there was a person in the air. My mind immediately told me it was Tooth. He was huge. Nomad drew his sword and prepared to attack. Spike was standing next to me watching. Selene was next to Nomad. I wondered what was going to happen now. I remembered wanting to try healing Tooth. I was thinking about what healing spell might work best. Tooth saw Nomad's sword and stopped in mid air, hovering. He looked over in my direction. He said I'd said I would help him… heal him… he said he was sick and couldn't control it. I thought this might just work even easier than I had thought. I had a brief thought of intruding Templars… I pushed that thought out of my mind. All I needed was to inadvertently summon Templars to join us! He shrunk to a normal size and stood in front of me. I looked at the filth and decay that was still oozing off of him. He still looked more like a zombie than a person. But that could just be on the surface…

      I focused on the song Touch My Heart, it is off of the soundtrack to the anime series Devil Hunter Yohko. The song played through. Golden energy seemed to be penetrating through Tooth. It looked like it was dragging something out of him… it was separating him into two individuals. The separation process looked difficult and unpleasant. I switched my tactics. I switched to the song Come Out and Play by the Offspring, focusing on the lines "Gotta keep 'em separated" and "come out and play" to split the second individual away from Tooth. Something hideous was being pulled out. It latched on to Tooth with tentacles of some kind. It wasn't going to let go. Spike charged in and pulled Tooth out of the creature's grasp. The both of them fell to the ground about ten feet beyond the creature. The creature was taking a form recognizable to me now. It looked like Freddy Krueger. If I was seeing it as Freddy that probably meant it was a dream demon. I saw the others were attacking the dream demon. Instead of going in as well I used the song Dream Warriors by Dokken to drain the dream demon's strength. Nomad was grappling with the dream demon. Selene ran her sword right through its side, right through the chest area. Spike grabbed onto the dream demon and sucked its energy in. The dream demon didn't last long. It was soon nothing more than a glowing vapor which Spike absorbed.

      I went over to Tooth. He was sitting on the ground now. He looked a bit disoriented. There were still things growing off of him. Maggot infested wounds. Rot and dirt. But it wasn't nearly as bad as before. "You had a dream demon," I told him, "and you might have another… or something else. I don't think dream demons usually partner up. Let's go somewhere safe so we can do some more healing."

      Nomad suggested we go to the tower. I agreed and we teleported to the tower. We were in a room that looked like sick bay on Star Trek. I told Tooth to lie down on one of the examination beds. He did that. The computer scanned him. It then spoke. It said it had detected an unknown parasitic presence. It said the presence was energy based and could not be cured by medical means. Nomad now suggested we take Tooth to the healing glen. He opened a portal and we all went through.


      Note: From past dreams I read in Nomad's DJ I know I have been to this glen before, but this is the first time I remember being there. It was the most beautiful forest glen I have ever seen. I was so taken in by its beauty that I lost my lucidity…

      We were all in the beautiful glen. Nomad, Selene, Spike, Tooth, and me. I was looking around at the beautiful scenery when Tooth began having a fit. A convulsion of some kind. There were tendrils of golden energy extending from the trees, flowers, insects… from every part of the glen… and probing into Tooth. I wondered what they were doing to him. I instinctively knew they meant no harm. That was healing energy. This was a place of healing. But that didn't change the fact Tooth was in a serious convulsion. He called out for help. I know nothing of how to handle convulsions except to keep the person from hurting themselves. Selene had already grabbed one of Tooth's arms. I grabbed the other, and Spike sat on his legs to pin them down. As Tooth had the biggest convulsion of them all a form actually came up and out of him. It looked like Freddy Krueger. A dream demon? Somehow it seemed like a bad rerun. The dream demon glared at Spike and said he was a pathetic excuse for a… BLAM! His head exploded. I saw Nomad behind Selene with a large double-barreled shotgun that was still smoking at the barrels. The dream demon turned to energy which Spike absorbed. I couldn't help but laugh at that. A pathetic excuse for a what? He hadn't even finished his insult before he was dead! A pathetic excuse for a dream demon…

      I looked back at Tooth. He tried to get up. He couldn't do it. I told him to rest. He'd had TWO dream demons inside him… not a common thing. Dream demons don't usually get along well enough to team up… I noticed he looked a lot better now. He still had a couple wounds that were maggot infested, but they appeared minor. I could see his true form now. He looked like a child. I am not very good at guessing ages, but my guess was around 12. He looked so pale. I heard something coming. I looked up. I saw a large something emerge into the glen. It looked like a rock golem, but it was made out of beautiful crystal instead of stone. It was being very careful of the vegetation. It had a pleasant look on its face. A warm and caring look I would not have thought a golem was capable of. He leaned over and gently scooped Tooth into his arms like he was carrying his own child. He said he would take care of the child. He disappeared back into the foliage and was gone. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.
      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      As I fell asleep, I thought about how Tooth kept intercepting me somehow on the way to the Moon.

      Truce

      I created a purple vortex portal directly above my bed, and I found myself on the moon. For some reason, the same damn monsters from the night before were there, but they were already being defeated by Raven, Selene, and Spike. I saw them back in that bizarre faux cityscape again, amongst skyscrapers. It seemed like the squid thing was the last one remaining. Again, I leapt up, and plunged, this time my white sword, into its, eyes, ran around, cutting off all of its tentacles, and sliced it in half.
      The cityscape disappeared. I felt a presence from above. I saw a giant Tooth descending. He had on some type of power boots and gloves, and jets were coming out of his boots. "What the hell? Is this guy mimicking me now?"

      I raised my sword.
      "No, wait," Tooth said, "I don't want to fight. You can help me. I'm... I'm sick."
      I sheathed my sword. He landed on the moon in front of us. Spike looked suspicious. Selene seemed curious to see how I would react. I noticed then he looked more like a real person, with a gross infection, than an actual zombie.
      Raven smiled at him, and said, "We can help you with that." She looked at me, and I nodded to her. "Come here."

      Tooth shrank down to normal size, and stood in front of her. He kind of looked like a kid wearing a Halloween spaceman costume. Raven began singing. She closed her eyes, and lifted her arms. Something like wind came out of her, and she opened her eyes. Her eyes were glowing a golden color. Something was being blown out of Tooth. It looked like a ghost.

      Tooth's face and body began to shift uncontrollably. Spike leaped upon him, knocking him to the ground. A dream demon stood before me, its feet in Tooth's chest. Selene drew her sword. I tackled the dream demon, pushing it forward, and held it on the ground. Selene plunged her sword into its head, and it turned into vapor and vanished. Raven kept singing.
      Spike let go of Tooth, and he stood up. He seemed disoriented. He looked like a green crystal. I could see he had glowing green parasites in his body still.

      "Hmm, where should we take him?" said Raven.
      "To the Tower?" I asked.
      "Ok," she said.
      We walked past the wall. Tooth looked around at the plants and fruit trees beginning to carpet the ground. "Oo!" he said.

      We were suddenly in a room in the tower that I had never been in. I felt like were on the third floor. A medical droid appeared and scanned Tooth. A woman's voice, the voice of the Tower computer said, "Parasites detected, unknown presence detected, illness beyond capabilities."
      "I know where we can go," I said. I created a portal, and we went through to the Glen of Healing.

      We were in a beautiful forest glen at the base of a great mountain range. All the tall grass was bluish. There were little insects flitting about. Tooth looked around. He began shifting uncontrollably again. "Ah! Help me!" he whimpered. He fell to the ground and began convulsing. Selene grabbed on arm, and Raven grabbed the other one, and Spike grabbed his ankles.

      Another dream demon stood in front of me, and said, "You call yourselves dream war-" CH-CHKBOOM but was interrupted from a blast from my one-handed shotgun. As it dissipated, it cursed at us.
      We let go of Tooth, and he tried to stand up, but he was too weak. The parasites began crawling out of him. It was revolting.

      Raven raised her right arm, and purple and orange fire came down from the sky, on to all of us, burning all the ectoplasm off of us, which for some reason we always got covered with after fighting dream demons and nightstalkers.

      Tooth was whimpering softly. There were still a few stubborn parasites left in his gut, and his head. The frost giant appeared, pushing the trees apart. He blew healing herbs on all of us, and the crushed leaves went right to our scratches and wounds from the previous battles, and on to Tooth also. The frost giant picked him up, and put him over his shoulder like one carries a small child.
      "I'll take care of him," he smiled, and walked away.

      I woke up from the previous dream and went right back to sleep focusing on Alicia. I had the idea that if I didn't hurry the night would be over before I could complete my healing session on Alicia. I didn't make note of the time when I woke up, so I don't know how valid this concern was… I tried for a WILD but I got to the moon in a semi-lucid state.

      I was on the moon. I did a double take. I hadn't figured on coming to the moon. I wondered why I was there. I looked around and I spotted Nomad. Spike and Selene were with him. I pulled an internal Homer Simpson (D'Oh!) as I consciously remembered I was going to take Nomad with me this time. At least my subconscious had remembered! I asked if Nomad was ready to go. He said yes. I opened a portal focusing on getting to Alicia's room. For an instant I had the crazy idea that Nomad was going to say 'meow' like a cat… I looked at Nomad. I couldn't think why I would expect him to do an imitation of a cat. The four of us went through the portal.

      On the other side we were in Alicia's room. It was dark. Alicia was asleep in her bed. I told Nomad I have been trying to help her fight off a chronic illness that seems to be centered in her digestive system somewhere… but the doctors have yet to get a fix on what the problem is. I said I would do my healing spell again, and any healing he could add would be helpful. I focused on the song Voices from the Macross Plus soundtrack. Nomad started playing a strange instrument that I didn't recognize at the time (it was a didjeridoo, a wood wind instrument originating in Australia). He was playing it in harmony with my song. It sounded really good together. Healing energy flowed around and through Alicia. A couple of different colors of healing energy intertwined with each other to make beautiful patterns as the light flowed through her, washing the illness out with it. I used my song a couple of times and Nomad played along with me. After the song was finished for the second time I told Nomad that should do it for now. I thanked him for helping.

      I got a thought. I asked if anyone else was curious how Tooth was doing. Nomad was. I opened a portal to the healing glen where the crystal golem had been. We all went through it. Not far from the glen was a large cave. The interior of the cave was mostly stone but it was dotted with beautiful crystals in it. I admired the crystals for a bit before I noticed the crystal golem. He was in the back of the cave with a child… Tooth I assumed. Although I have come to know Tooth as looking like a zombie. That child looked nothing like a zombie. The child was drawing on the wall with something. The kid looked up at us when we entered. He smiled.

      "He's teaching me lots of cool things," the boy said. He looked over at me. "You said you wanted to know my real name. It's Joseph."

      "Like my pet," Nomad said, "His name is Joe." As if on cue a big black dog came bounding into the cave and went over to Joseph. The dog licked the boy on the face and the boy laughed. I took a liking to the dog immediately. I went over and pet the dog. He wagged his tail in response. I saw Q near the entrance to the cave. I went over to him and asked if he thought Joseph would be ok. He said it is all making sense now…


      Q Explains Tooth / Joseph: Q said it looks like Joseph has a natural ability to travel. So he started doing it, exploring the ability. Unfortunately there are evil forces out there who will try to prey on anyone they perceive as vulnerable. A couple of dream demons got hold of Joseph and quickly made their home there. Of course this enhanced his ability to travel to other people's dreams. Unfortunately, since the dream demons are evil and have a lot of negative energy (hate, rage, anger, pain, etc.) they infected Joseph with their energy. Q said it looks like Joseph is really a decent kid, but no one would be nice to be around with all of that negative energy in them! He said now that the dream demons were gone his new friend was telling him ways to defend against dream demons. Q said the kid is a fast learner. He smiled and disappeared.

      I remembered at the last minute that Nomad had wanted to talk to Q. Too late. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.
      Healing Magic
      I was on the moon again, standing beneath the tower. Raven was right next to me, creating a portal. "So, you're coming this time, right?" she said. "Yes, I nodded." Spike and Selene were standing behind me. We went through. We landed in the bedroom of a sleeping woman. Raven sang, and beautiful blue energy surrounded the sleeping woman. I also did Tuvan throat singing, and a pinkish lavender energy floated around the blue. I played my didjeridoo, pointing it at the floor underneath her. Large spheres of energy came out of it, like bubbles, and she was floating on them. I noticed she had some kind of astral parasites in her, so I stopped playing and made three medium sized vortices, like little purple tornadoes, and they moved back and forth through her dream body, sucking them out.
      Spike and Selene watched us placidly.
      "Thank you," said Raven, "that's good for now." She made another portal, and we returned to the Moon.

      In the Frost Giant's Cave
      "Let's check up on Tooth," she said. "Ok, good idea," I said.
      We were in a cave on a mountainside. The frost giant was in the back of the cave with Tooth. A small fire was burning. The frost giant was watching Tooth draw on the wall. Tooth looked at us.

      "He's teaching me things," he smiled.
      "Good," I said.
      "And, my name isn't Tooth, of course. It's Joseph."
      "That's like my pet's name, Jo." Jo, my astral pet appeared in the form of a big black dog. He ran up to Joseph, and licked his face. Joseph giggled. I then realized he was just a kid. I don't know how, but somehow he had learned to be a Nightstalker. He would release his rage and anger at night in dreams.

      I could understand how I would be amazed at that as a kid, and I may have even been cruel to people myself if I had that ability at that age.
      We went to the edge of the cave, and waved goodbye to Joseph and the frost giant. I summoned my sky blue dragon, and my golden dragon, and Selene and I got on one, and Raven and I got on the other one.
      The dragons took off, and flew over the countryside. It was so beautiful, I felt like crying.

      Yes, I do mean a cachement system. Perhaps a tunnel down to the roots, a sunk-in bowl shape with the taproot in the center, and a gash in the root, allowing water to seep out? Of course, this would probably be a very slow collection process, but it's a start.

      Also, good job on the very productive dream last night, guys! My prayers go out to Alicia, that she may rid herself of the disease that ails her, and also to Joseph, in hope that he may learn to use his gift to help others (and have a kickass time doing it XD) and never be bothered by dream demons again. If only WILDs liked me. =P Do you guys always have these every night?

      Interesting idea, drawing water from a root.

      These? Do you mean WILD's? Yeah. It's pretty safe to assume so. (I had a very hard time last night, though.) Shared dreams, no, not always, but we are getting more and more consistent. Sometimes we are in each other's dreams, but one will forget the dream. I am pretty sure it happened in that case, like in my Vampire King dream. That was a long epic dream that Raven has no recollection of.

      I felt no resistance between the moon and I. Tooth did not exist anymore. Only Joseph. Good. I created a portal above my bed anyway, just to be on the safe side. I tumbled out of it, on to the moon. The same three monsters, the squid thing, the bird thing, and the scaly demon tumbled out after me. I was getting sick of these clowns. I became a great red minotaur with a demon face, and summoned my sky blue budgie sword. My eyes glowed yellow. I sliced up the monsters in a calm manner.

      Fragment
      I was on the moon. My friends were fighting the three monsters in the faux cityscape. The bird thing and squid thing were defeated. I leaped up, and plunged my silver sword into the back of the great demon's head.


      Damn Parasites
      Fragment
      I was in Alicia's room with Raven. Something felt wrong. Something was on my back. I somersaulted out of her room through the wall. I reached on my back, and ripped off a crab like parasite that was feeding off of my energy. I stabbed it with a dagger, and it dissipated.
      I went back into the room. Raven was working healing magic, but it was not very effective due to the parasite thing on her upper back. "Raven, come here," I said calmly.
      We stepped out into the yard. "What is..." She felt the thing on her back, and ripped it off. I knocked it out of her hands, to the ground, and stabbed it with my dagger. Raven did her fire-healing spell on us. It helped, but I had a feeling it wasn't enough. I still felt sores in my back. "Maybe we should go back to the tower," she said.
      "You're right." She created a portal, and we went back to the tower.
      We were in the sick bay. The tower computer scanned us. Spike and Selene were there. "Parasitic wounds detected. Ectoplasmic toxin detected." A medical droid appeared, and two beds.

      The droid gave me a red glowing liquid to drink. It said it was pomegranate juice. I drank it, and felt healing energy course through me. I lied down on the bed, and the droid wheeled me away to another room. Spike wheeled Raven away, led by another medical droid and Selene followed me. I peeled off my shirt, and lied down on my stomach. The droid poured some kind of liquid into the puncture wounds, then bandaged me up, and told me to rest.

      Fragment
      I was lying in the Glen of Healing on my back. I felt the grass lift my body up. I was floating on it. Selene was stroking my hair.

      Fragment
      I was in the cave of the Frost Giant with Raven, Selene, and Spike. Joseph was in the back of the cave with the Frost Giant. Joseph smiled and turned to us. He saw the bandages on Raven and I. "Dream demons, huh?" he said. We nodded.
      "Hey, look at what I can do!" he said, as he walked to the entrance of the cave. He lifted up his right hand, with a thick leather glove on it, and whistled. A beautiful peregrine falcon landed on his hand. He gave it a strip of meat, and stroked its head.
      "Isn't she a beauty?" he asked.
      "Yes," I smiled.
      I fell asleep with my light/sound machine. I focused on doing a WILD to the moon so I could pick up Nomad before going to heal Alicia. I found myself on the moon. I looked around to see if I could find Nomad. I didn't see him at first. I was thinking he might not be asleep yet. I then kicked myself and said it had never mattered before… why would it matter now? I started looking for Nomad. I finally saw him come out of a portal. A giant squid, a giant bird, and a dinosaur followed him out. I pointed at the creatures. I said he had brought some friends. He said he was getting sick of those clowns. He transformed into a giant minotaur with a huge sword and sliced them up rather quickly. It was just a chore that needed to be done. He seemed rather bored by the activity. He transformed back to his normal form and waited in front of me.

      "My friend first?" I asked. He agreed so I opened a portal to Alicia's room. Alicia was on the bed. I went over to her. I started using Voices from the Macross Plus soundtrack. I noticed that Nomad didn't join in. I was too focused on the song to think about that. I didn't sense any danger. I thought maybe he had just awakened. I didn't think he was in any kind of danger. I continued my song. I heard Nomad saying my name behind me. Why was he interrupting my song? I shot him a dirty look for interrupting my song. He was motioning to me. He looked concerned about something. I went over to him. He went through the window and into the yard. He pointed at my back. I reached back and groped. I found something. It felt like a giant cockroach. Gross! I pulled it off of my back and threw it on the ground. It tried to scurry away but Nomad stabbed it. I wondered what the f**k that had been. I used a brief healing spell to bathe both Nomad and me in healing energy. I figured it couldn't hurt. Nomad still had some injuries. I couldn't tell if I did. Nomad said we should go to the tower. I said ok. I opened a portal to get through.


      Note: I'm not sure when, but somewhere in here I slipped to semi-lucidity...

      On the other side we were in a Star Trek style sick bay. The computer scanned both of us. A droid (like in Star Wars, R2D2) gave Nomad a red potion. He drank it. I wondered what it was. The droid led Nomad and Selene from the room. Spike was beside me. He said he liked this setup. He said he was sure getting to see a lot more of me! He smiled. The droid examining me said I didn't have a parasite, but I do have a problem with negative energy.

      "No shit, Sherlock," I responded to the droid.

      Spike told me to be nice. The droid indicated I should go to a different room for cleansing of the negative energy. Spike and I followed the droid into another room where there was a shower. Instead of water, however, I was bathed in blue and white energy. It felt wonderful. It was sooooo relaxing. I was relaxed into a state of complete non-lucidity. I was bathing in the energy. Shortly after I lost lucidity I woke up.

      The four of us were on some Outer Lands adventure that Q had concocted for fun and practice, so we couldn't get hurt. We were all Dark Elves. We had dark skin, like coal with a purple tint, yellow slanted eyes, small fangs, and black hair. We were riding on horses through a forest at night. I was wielding the staff that was created with the stone we stole from the Vampires, softly glowing blue-white in the darkness. I had a sword on my hip.
      "Am I Gandalf?" I thought, confused. I saw Selene on my right firing white arrows at unseen enemies behind us.
      Raven and Spike both had swords and shields.
      "What's with the Gauntlet archetypes?" I thought amused.

      missing time
      I was standing on the forest floor, waiting the approach of the enemies pursuing us, humans wearing the armor of crusaders. They had large red crosses on their breastplates. I slammed my staff on the ground, and moonlight burst from the stone as the enemies approached. The horses spooked, and some of the riders got thrown off their horses. The ones that fell stood up and charged me, while the ones on horseback pursued my friends. I drew my sword, whirling, thrusting and shooting bolts of moonlight at my enemies.

      missing time
      We rode to a great dark castle. Bats were flying in and out of it. "Ah, the Castle of the Dark Elves," I thought with a grim delight.
      Note: the Dark Elf deams disturbed me, as if I was reliving a past life.
      I was in a strange place. I looked around to see where I was. I wasn't lucid. I saw I was in a forest of some kind. It was a rather dark forest. I wasn't alone there. There were four horses there. Three of the horses had riders. I recognized the riders. Nomad was on a black stallion. Selene was on a flame red stallion. Adult Link (From Legend of Zelda) was on a brown mare. There was a white mare with flam red mane and tail standing next to me. She nuzzled me affectionately. Q appeared amidst us. He looked at me and told me I was dreaming. I tried to fly and found I could do it. I landed beside my horse.

      Note: Sometimes Spike will take an alternative form. Tonight he looked like adult Link from Legend of Zelda. He looked like Link does in Twilight Princess.

      Q snapped his fingers. We all now looked like elves. Link didn't change at all. Q handed Nomad a staff with a glowing crystal on it. He said to deliver that to the mountain king. A simple straight forward quest for now. He added that we weren't the only ones who wanted that gem, though. He disappeared. I climbed onto my horse. We started heading in the direction Q had indicated. Nomad was looking at his staff. He said something about Gandalf. I said he was an elf… Gandalf is not an elf. I heard something behind us. There were enemies coming. Selene started firing arrows into the trees. I didn't see the enemies yet. We were in a closed in area so we rode farther along the path until it opened up to a point where there would be room to fight. The enemies exploded into the clearing behind us. They were all on horseback. I did a double take at them. Templars?! WTF? I heard Q talking to me telepathically. He said not to worry, they weren't shadow Templars. Just DCs in the training area. Energy came from Nomad's staff and knocked a number of Templars off of their horses. Some of the Templars went after Nomad and Selene. Somehow Link and I got separated off from them… and a bunch of Templars followed us.

      Link was riding next to me as we led the Templars off to the side. He asked me if I had decided to bring my own enemies today. We came to a stop and turned to face the enemies. Link used his sword to create a wave of force. That wave knocked all of the Templars off of their horses. The horses freaked out and fled. A couple of Templars got trampled in the process. Link jumped off of his horse and into the middle of a group of Templars where he did a spin attack. He cut down four Templars with that move and made several others back away from him. I jumped off of my horse and got into a sword fight with a couple other Templars. My Witchblade armor blocked any attacks coming at me and I quickly returned attacks and cut down Templars. I pulled my sword out of a dying Templar just in time to see Link dispatch one other Templar. All of the Templars were now gone. Some of their horses could be seen grazing on the grass.

      Link and I met up with Nomad and Selene. We were all back on our horses. We headed farther up the mountain. I noticed Nomad's horse no longer had a rider. I did a double take. I thought maybe he had woken up. His horse was still following us. We were almost to the top of the mountain. There was a castle at the top of the mountain. The castle of the mountain king. I saw Nomad was back. I thought the castle actually looked kind of creepy. It was dark and had a lot of bats flying around it. I wondered what kind of person this mountain king was. I wondered if we should give this mountain king that staff. I thought that might be bad. Maybe this quest wasn't quite as straight forward as Q had implied. A little plot twist. Nomad was staring at the castle. He disappeared again. I wondered where he had gone this time. The dream was slipping. I told Link I was leaving. He said he would see me back home then. He leaned over from his horse and kissed me. Everything faded to black as I woke.

      I said to Raven, "How about a superhero adventure?" I asked. "After all, we are kind of like the Justice League," I said.
      "Okay," she laughed. She looked up and to the side, and I could tell she was talking to Q.
      We were in the Justice League moon fortress. I was the Green Lantern. Spike was Batman. Raven was the Scarlet Witch. Selene was Psylock. "Psylock?" I thought amused. "She's not in the Justice League." For some reason, Raven changed to Wonder Woman for a second and said, "Reports indicate that Doomsday is back on Earth again, in North America." She changed back to the Scarlet Witch, and began creating a portal.
      We were in a city park. A giant Doomsday, had some people in his hand. He was destroying things, and making a general mess of the park. When he saw us, he dropped the people. I formed a giant hand with my ring, and caught the people. My ring started telling me their medical status, and vital signs. I saw Raven/Scarlet Witch doing something crazy that was making reality bend. I had to look away because it was disorienting. Spike/Batman ran up Doomsday's back, and was punching him in the back of his neck with spiked brass knuckles. Selene/Psylock was teelporting around Doomsday stabbing psyblades into his flesh.

      I began flying to a hospital in the city, then I thought I should take them to the sick bay in the tower. When I got there, the computer said, "DC treatment unnecessary. DC's are for training purposes only." The people evaporated.
      "Oh, right, duh!" I slapped my forehead and laughed.
      I was back in the park again.
      Suddenly Juggernaut ran out of nowhere, and tackled Doomsday to the ground, then punched him in the face, cracking all his weird face bones.
      Then, Juggernaut stood up, and took off his helmet. "I'm a good guy now."
      "What?" I said.
      "Yeah. Xavier healed my crazy brain." His face looked strange. It disturbed me. "What a weird crossover!" I thought.

      Fragment
      The Scarlet Witch had created some type of tiny black hole in front of Doomsday's face, and it was slowly stretching toward the black hole. He was resisting it with all his might. Batman had plunked a grappling hook into Doomsday's head, and was swinging around him, binding him with cable. Psylock appeared on top of Doomsday's head, and plunged a psi-dagger into his left eye. He roared with fury, but all his energy was focused on resisting the black hole.
      I formed a giant green Super Mario hammer with my ring. "Stand back everyone!" I said, as I got a good grip on my hammer, and BAM smacked Doomsday toward the black hole. He got sucked in, wailing and cursing as he went, and it winked out of sight. We put our hands on our hips and started laughing, like how they always do at the end of Saturday morning cartoons.
      My astral pet, Jo, ran up to me, in the form of a big black lab. "And don't you come back," he barked. "This is just like a cartoon!" I thought, and I laughed even harder.
      I do not have any memories of the Justice League dream...

      I didn't hear Q say to bring the staff to the castle! Next time you just have to tell me what he says. Hahaha. The only time I ever heard him was in the collose..... DOH! I do remember him telling me that now, but I immediately forgot about the whole thing. Just like how you forget someone's name after you meet them....

      He was sitting in lotus in a cloud and he handed me the staff. I was so entranced by it, because it's the same one with the gem that Selene stole from the Vampires. I was staring at the staff too long, and I lost lucidity and totally forgot the mission.

      Man, I need a lot more training. It was a fail, but it was a EPIC FAIL!!!

      Too bad you don't remember the JLA dream. It really kicked ass.

      Smooth, Nomad.

      Don't mean to get you guys off topic, but since you guys are apparently experts...

      I've never performed a full WILD. The first time I had a great start, but pulled out of it because of the intense vibrations (a helicopter went by and amplified them about 10X what I normally feel). I also started one about 2 weeks ago, but A: didn't see/hear/feel any hallucinations, besides feeling like I was in some sort of spirit form free of my body (best. feeling. EVER.) and B: waited for about 15-30 minutes for hallucinations to come but pulled out once again when my patience ran short. I never learn. XP I can usually get into at least SP, but tried three times last night and today and no dice. Do you two have any techniques that you use to pull them off every night?

      Haha. Yeah. Well, I am learning. I have learned so much recently Royalpeach.

      You do not need hallucinations to WILD, but they help. You were experiencing you dream body. Good job. Next time, stand up, and start flying around at that point. What I like to do to get into SP, is wear a sleep mask, earplugs, and lay on my back in shavassana (yoga corpse position), and take long deep yogic breaths. (If you want to learn how to do yogic breathing, just google it, a little hard to explain.)

      I had a feeling that was my dream body! When I opened my eyes, it was odd. I expected the feeling to end, but it didn't. That should've been a big hint that I was dreaming -.-' Never thought of the possibility of WILDing without hallucinations, and I guess I had a false awakening. D'oh!

      As for getting up and flying around, I did try that. I envisioned myself first falling through the bed, and that didn't seem to do anything. Then I tried to imagine floating up from my real body. No dice. That was pretty early on in the dream-body state though, maybe I didn't enter a stable dream until about 10 minutes later when I opened my eyes. Thanks for the help!

      You could just try standing up, and walking out your front door. Then do an RC.

      I missed these three replies earlier. Sorry guys!

      I've tried to share dream with my husband a few times. I found him in my LDs, told him it was a dream, stayed beside him, asked stupid questions. I did everything to get noticed and to wake up his mind. But every time he told me that he didn't even see me in his dreams... Don't know what to think. And he has very vivid dreams and usually remember his early morning dreams.


      That's a good idea!
      No, they haven't tried that yet. I'll tell them.
      Thank you

      Do you sleep at the same time to share dream?
      Same night, not necessarily same time.

      I think it would be much easier if your husband made himself lucid.

      Wow! Sounds like a kickass place to go. Got a link to the DJ entry?

To comment further: One reason it may be difficult to share dreams is that people may be dreaming in/of different alternate universes. I know I've told my friends in dreams that it's a dream, remember it, wake up and write it down and tell me you remember it tomorrow if you do. Never works I never get anything from them the next day. One thing you 2 might be doing is that you've managed to enter/be concious of the same alternate universe through intent.
      Fascinating theory. I also think it helps to try and meet at a specific place. Imagine if you tried to meet a friend in waking life by just saying, "hey let's hang out tonight," and that's it.

      I found myself on the moon. That didn't really surprise me. I am so used to going to the moon that it just happens automatically. I wasn't lucid. I hadn't placed a whole lot of emphasis on staying aware as I fell asleep. So I was just standing on the moon trying to relax. I stared up at the stars. So many stars. So clear and sharp without the interference of the Earth's atmosphere. So beautiful… I was staring up at the stars when a portal opened. Nomad came through. My first thought was to leave. I was thinking my negative energy could infect those around me. I don't want that to happen. I turned to leave but Spike was there. He said I don't have to go. I saw creatures come out after Nomad. It seemed familiar. A huge bird, a giant squid, and a dinosaur of some kind. Now there was a chance to get rid of some of my negative energy. I formed Witchblade into a sword and prepared to attack one of them. Nomad was indicating to not attack. I wondered why. I waited even though I wanted to attack something. Nomad pulled an Alex Mercer (Off of Prototype game). He went to each of the creatures in turn and consumed them. He absorbed them into himself. I thought that was really strange. I thought I felt the dream slipping. I felt disoriented. Everything faded to black, but I felt myself in Spike's arms…

      Lone Journeys (excerpt) (WILD)

      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      I tumbled through a portal on the moon. An giant squid, a great pig-man, and a huge bird tumbled through after me. My friends were about to attack. I told them, "No, these are my 'aumakua, my totems. For some reason I didn't recognize it before. They are part of me, in a sense, manifestations of my rage. Do not fight them. I need to merge with them."

      I absorbed he'e, the great squid, the great octopus, Kanaloa, the god of the sea. I absorbed Pueo, the owl, the one who sees. I absorbed pua'a, Kamapua'a, the boar-man demigod. I felt their power in me.

      Glowing blue-white transparent tentacles came out of me, and I grew huge, morphing into a great red minotaur. My eyes glowed yellow, and steam rose from my skin.

      "AAh! I feel their power!" I said with a voice like thunder, then I was my crystal energy self, glowing green on the moon.

      "So Raven, do you-" but I was interrupted by her fainting in Spike's arms. Selene, Spike and I teleported into the sick bay at the Tower with Raven Knight. A medical droid appeared and a gurney. Spike laid her down on the gurney. The Tower said, "Diagnosis: _______ "


      Note: The Tower said: Depression, but I withheld that for Raven's privacy.
