      Dannon's Journal of dreaming.

      It all started last night as I lay in bed with my mind wandering like a tumbleweed through an old ghost town. After a while I start focusing my mind into a point while relaxing my face, my jaw and the rest of my body.
      I start sinking into deeper levels of relaxation. I become aware that I am in a hypnogogic state when I notice I am watching a pickup truck driving down a driveway, kicking up dust. So I focus on my dream task, which is to dreamshare with CNDR.

      I am on the verge of WILDing and I sense many possible dreams to step into all swirling around me. I am invoking CNDR's energy and feeling for it. Then I see glimpses of her: her arm, her hair, her silhouette against the moonlight coming through the window. I smell her and her hair. I hear her saying "Is it working?" or "It is working!" Or something very similar. Keep in mind I am not in the dream, but trying to completely fall asleep and enter the dream. But my monkey-mind starts getting excited and I try to calm it but the swirling wheel of dreams recedes a little. I can no longer see or hear or smell my dreams but I can still feel CNDR with my feeling sense. But eventually my mind comes back and starts wandering as the dreamtime slips away.

      Organic Mechanic
      I go hang out with a musician friend of mine (Greg) and a friend of his at a hotel lobby. Greg's friend wants us to stay and watch Emerson, Lake, and Palmer play a show. I don't think that I will stay, it costs to much and I am not a fan. But Palmer is a good drummer.
      I notice that Greg's friend is vacuuming my car. He is vacuuming pieces of broken glass and I notice my windshield has a hole in it. Damn! He tells me he saw some shady guy break into it. I take the car to an auto body shop and ask them how much it will cost to fix it.
      Mechanic: "What happened here?"
      ME: "Some asshole broke my windshield"
      Mechanic: "Don't worry about it. We'll take care of it. There's no charge"
      They started working on my car. Hey that is very nice of them to fix my windshield for free! I am going to recommend this place to my friends. But how can they afford to fix it for free. Surely they will have to charge me for at least the cost of the new windshield. I get the bill back and it is $500! I start talking to the guy and he says:
      Mechanic: "This is how much it would have cost if I had charged you. This is for my hourly rate, as well as the hourly rate of the guy who made the windshield and the guy who delivered the windshield and the guy who made the glass for the windshield. You see, when you pay for something you pay for everybody who had anything to do with it, and they are all taking advantage of you because they are motivated by profit. But if they all realized like me that there is no such thing as money, the world would be a great place."
      Me: "Hey, thank you! I will definitely recommend you to my friends"
      Mechanic: "I am the Organic Mechanic

      KAUA'I DREAMING

      I am in Kaua'i swimming in the ocean! The beautiful tropical sun is tanning my body and the sea breeze is filling my lungs. I hear the sounds of surf and the smell of coconut and guava. The white sand beaches are brightly reflecting the sun. I am kayaking around the island with Kayak Kaua'i (In Waking Life I used to Work for Kayak Kauai). We are out on the part of the ocean that goes around the corner of the Kalalau valley into the Polihale.

      Kalalau:


      Polihale:


      The current is strong here and the fish are gathering. I become lucid. The owner's son, who is one of the guys with us, is a real asshole, and has always been an asshole to me just because he thinks he is the shit because his Dad owns Kayak Kauai. So I summon a shark to get him. A shark comes and heads for his kayak. He starts screaming and I am laughing. But then I remember to love my DCs so I decide to turn the shark into a dolphin. Now we have dolphins all around our kayaks out there in the ocean. But I am feeling a little mischevious so I turn the dolphin back into a shark and the guy freaks out agian. Then I cahnge it back into a dolphin and the guy relaxes. But he had lost his oar! He couldn't paddle his kayak and he starts drifting out on the riptide. I throw him my oar and I use mind power to power my kayak. It is like a motorboat or a jet ski, but all mind power! I get very involved with flying through the ocean on my kayak with the dolphins all jumping and spinning and racing me! I love dreaming!

      Pickle Frog Song

      A little while later, I am back on land in some Hawaiian town hanging out on the lawn in front of some grocery store. This is not lucid. There is a little boy singing a song and picking his nose. The song goes:
      "Pickle Packle Peek-a-boo, Pickle Packle Peek-a-boo"
      but maybe it sounds more like "Picko Packo Pee-a-Boo"
      I really like the song. CNDR comes up and I say "He is singing about his pet frog!" And CNDR starts laughing and we are both laughing joyously. The kid is very cute, picking his nose while he sings. His sister comes up and they both are chanting "Pickle Packle Peek-a-boo"
      CNDR and I go into the store to buy some pickles but the owner tells us that they are all sold out since those kids started singing that song.

      What a nice dream character! Yeah, let's get rid of money

      KAUA'I DREAMING

      That is so pretty! It's mind-blowing actually. For how long did you used to live in Hawaii?

      LOL! Well that was a good attempt anyways.

      "Pickle Packle Peek-a-boo, Pickle Packle Peek-a-boo"

      That is so random! Try to say that really fast.

      I lived in Kaua'i for a year. Best times of my life so far, but I had to watch my back much of the time so I didn't get beat up or killed.

      Made in the Shade

      I am in a hot city with Spanish moss hanging from the trees. It is somewhere in the South. I am driving a car and I am wondering how the heck I got all the way over here. It is dusk and there is a lot of bars and music and nightlife.
      Now I am walking by a river that goes through the city that is kind of underground, but open at the ceiling so I can still see the sky but there are pedestrian bridges going over the river. There are a lot of restaurants and bars outside so I don't know if I'm inside or outside. And drunk people celebrating joyfully. I can't tell if I'm in San Antonio or New Orleans.
      I go around the corner and there is an old black blues guitarist sitting on a stool smiling at me. He has a harmonica in a harness around his neck, a tambourine under one foot and a rattle sticking out of his shoe. He has a hat on and transparent sunglasses. He looks kind of like Jiminy cricket.
      He says to me: "Looks like you got it made in the shade!"
      Me: "Made in the shade?"
      Him: "And having fun in the sun>"
      Me: "Well, I feel like I'm too rattled to shake and too stoned to roll."
      Him: "Well I'm gonna give you a piece of advice, but I'm gonna let it out slow and lay it on you easy, so you can dig it. You got it made in the shade but you don't know it. You gotta be like rubber man."
      Me: "Rubber band?"
      Him: "You can be like a rubber band if that's your thing but don't stretch yourself too thin. Then you can bounce back."
      The whole time he is smiling so much and looking at me over his sunglasses that it is contagious and I start feeling real good.
      Him: "You see, everyone's got their dues they have to pay and you always pay yours on time, so I came here to spread a little sunshine for you so you can see your way."
      He kind of sings this last line while playing his guitar and then he goes into playing "I Feel Good" by James Brown. And he is stomping on that tambourine and stomping his other foot with the rattle and it is some good music! Then he starts blowing on that harmonica.
      Him (singing): "You're one of us now, so rise up singing. Spread your wings and fly!"
      Later Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray jump out from behind a wall and they are cops. "Freeze!" Yells Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd handcuffs me.
      "Hey! Aren't you Bill Murray?" I say. "Shhhh. Don't tell anyone" he replies and then he lets me go. It seems like they were only testing me to see if I would recognize them. We're all good friends and laughing.
      I woke up this morning feeling all good and singing "I Feel Good" all day as I drove for 8 hours. I just got back home and now I write this down.

      Ahh, that is too awesome! Billy Murry and Dan Aykroyd? You sure Sigourney Weaver wasn't around the corner some where? So which city do you think you were in? San Antonio or New Orleans?

      Well, I didn't see the Alamo, but it wasn't quite New Aawrlins. I don't know, but wherever it was it was fun!

      Thank you! I am not being modest, or proud, but I am in a state of ordinary dreaming compared to how I dream most of the time.
      This dream helped me, because last night I was very whelmed by my ex blaming me for all of her anger towards me. I started to react, but caught myself, and tried to listen to her without being defensive, and without speaking offensively, but it didn't help calm her down. It frustrated her even more because I wasn't taking on her blame for her emotional confusion, but still it affected me because I care and she couldn't see that. She thought I was being aloof. But really she wanted something from me but as far as I am concerned I am done trying to be responsible for her happiness or misery, because the relationship is over. But still I went to bed thinking "Am I really a total asshole?" "Am I really a bad person?" But it is easy to say "No, she is a crazy bitch!" but I don't want to think that because I have loved her for a long time and I want to let her go from my karma but with no bad feelings. I want to remember her fondly. So I had to think about all the relationships I have been in that didn't work out and why they didn't work out and what my patterns are. And I came to recognize that nobody else ever told me anything like she told me I was. It would be one thing if everybody said I was an asshole, then I probably would be an asshole in reality. So she is crazy, because the consensus reality is that I may be eccentric, but I am not an asshole! Lol. I love these forums! I like the forum on consensus reality!

      So this was on my mind last night and this dream just wiped it away. I want to write a song about it
      .
      So my waking life is not very conducive for focusing on my dreamlife at this moment. Because I am moving and taking extra hours at work and paying taxes and taking my cat to the vet and worrying about ifs ands and buts and trying to resolve things with my ex that we couldn't resolve when we were together. Why bother? She is a big girl, she can work out her own life. I am not her Daddy. Yet I still try. All the energy left over for my dream life goes to just remembering them, which does go a long way. I think just remembering your dreams is 90% of the work.

      So, when I devote all my energy to dreaming they become very inspiring, at least to me! I should get out some of my journals and post some down one of these days. But I feel like I am on my way back to those exalted states of inspiring dreams. Dreams that cannot be put into words, just pure shades of emotion and vibes.

      What I really miss is my daytime dream practice! I talked a little about it in the thread about coincidences, but I don't think anybody understood it. It is hard to find someone who understands me. That is why I love Dreamviews! I wish I knew people like you in waking life. Life gets lonely for a lucid dream wizard in the Bible Belt.

      Man! I drove to Atlanta and back today and I only have a radio in my car. And it is easter weekend! I was pressing seek and scan and every station was "Jesus died for your sins" and "Jesus this" and "Jesus that" and right wing christian fundamentalists ranting about God and Man and Law and Obama the Antichrist and country music singers whining about how they found Jesus after their woman left them and their truck broke down and their dog got the runs while I am driving past white crosses and Dixie flags in the orchards of the otherwise magnificently beautiful blue ridge mountains. And the rednecks who eat too much lard and pork and bacon and ham until they start looking like mutant pig-humans drive by leering at my wizard hat poking out of my sunroof.

      Luckily I found a good station that had an old-time and bluegrass show called "Across the Mountains" that was the perfect soundtrack for my drive across the mountains. I never actually liked that kind of music before I been to a few contra dancing jamborees down here and got a little moonshine and sweet tea in me. And the station also played Bob Dylan's "I Aint Gonna Work On Maggie's Farm No More" which always makes me laugh. And a great version of "Cold Rain and Snow" by Tony Rice!

      Hah!! The end of that had me laughing out loud for real!

      Yeah, you seem to be very spiritually advanced, you understand about the ego not being the core of a person, whereas it sounds like your ex doesn't get it. Then again, even a very spiritual person can lose it and start the blame game at times. I can't say anything about her one way or the other, because I don't know her at all... but I;m just saying, at times of emotional stress even someone who normally 'gets it" can crack and become a bitch.

      And I just had a small epiphany a few minutes ago... thinking about that picture of the knife-edged mountains you posted reminded me of a lost fragment from last nights' almost totally forgotten dream.

      I love bluegrass... especially instrumental. Usually the singing kills it though. Them down home boys really do know how to sling the fiddle though, don't they?

      Hell yeah they do! That is what inspired me to pick up the fiddle! This time last year I was hanging out under a willow tree during the full moon just slapping my knees and stomping my feet and sipping some moonshine to some people jamming out! I always thought of Oldtime and Bluegrass as some cheesey nostalgic white-boy hillbilly music but it wasn't until that night that I understood that it can be ecstatic trance music! Even the singing, which you're right that it can kill it, but when it is not a parody of itself but real authentic mournful expression, it touches your heart like only a hillbilly can. That is one reason I love Bob Dylan, he pulls it off, or he used to, that folk singing that sounds so bad but feels so good.

      Yes, even a spiritual person cracks. And I have played the blame game just like her. Even if I said that "I" understand about the ego not being the core of the person, and that my ex "doesn't get it" would be subtly playing the blame game. Everyone in our lives is a dream character and we bring out the good or bad in each other that is within us. She doesn't understand what I do, but I don't understand what she does.

      But anyways!!! I have been over it for a while!!! Our karma is cleared!!! She is free to be her and I support her, and wish her luck and good riddance!!! I have already dealt with all this. This is from the distant past! Ancient history! She just felt she still had a thing or two to tell me still out of the blue.

      This is a dream journal, not my personal rant journal. Goodnight y'all and comeback tomorrow to hear about the adventures I had tonight!

      Yeah they are, because they have not allowed life's betrayals to close their hearts or turn them bitter. They have lived and loved and suffered all kinds of tragedies, but rather than let it break their spirit, they turn it into grist for the mill, and express it with their guitar. Through their craft they transmute suffering into wisdom and happiness.

      THE BUZZING OF THE BEES TANTRA

      I am walking down a path in the woods with some people. I am excited and want to show them something even though I don't know what it is. Then it is just me and this girl I know walking down the path and hopping over fallen trees in the path. We arrive at this old shack or cabin. It is old and barely standing.

      I go inside, now it is just me and I'm naked. I go inside the cabin and the whole inside is one giant bee hive. All the walls are beehive. There is sun shining through the cracks in the slats illuminating lots of honey. The honey is dripping down the walls and from the ceiling I am eating it up! I am licking it and scooping it with my hands like a Pooh Bear. There are big happy honey bees flying in and out of the cabin.

      Presently the buzzing gets real loud. A loud droning coming from everywhere. My body starts buzzing as if my atoms are turning into energy (too much sugar?). I am vibrating blissfully. It is quite a sexy feeling. I am getting turned on. And then I hear the sound of drums. There is a drum circle somewhere nearby.

      I use my Xray vision to look through the walls and see that there are a bunch of tribal people wearing bee masks surrounding the hive and playing drums. I continue eating honey amongst the loud drone of bees and the primal beat of the drums.

      As a lay me head down last night I went almost immediately into a hypnogogic state. I started traveling through wormholes in my soul/space. Very realisitic aliens and mermaid and mermen also. I want to draw some pictures and post them. The alien had a laptop where the screen could be projected into my mind and the projection could come back to the laptop with pieces of my mind. It was like the alien was copying and pasting my mind. It would have been scary if I didn't know that it was just sleep paralysis and hypnogogic hallucinations (I hope).

      That's awesome...I love it when hypnagogia is so intense and vivid, sometimes it's even more fun than a normal dream. I always tell myself, "I must draw that!" but I always have trouble finding the time or motivation. I would love to see some of your HI inspired artwork though if you get around to drawing it.

      The tribal bee dream is awesome! It might be fun to actually replicate the bee mask. (I love masks)

      It would have been scary if I didn't know that it was just sleep paralysis and hypnogogic hallucinations (I hope)
      One time I woke up screaming telling the aliens to leave my head alone! Then I had no idea why I said that and I didn't have any recollection of the dream to why I was saying that. At least, I hope it was a dream

      This is so true. Blame can be really subtle. You know you're blaming someone for something if you're still angry at them

      But anyways!!! I have been over it for a while!!! Our karma is cleared!!! She is free to be her and I support her, and wish her luck and good riddance!!!
      One of my favorite phrases is "I now forgive and release (name). We are both happy and free!"

      oops..I'll be quiet now

      "I now forgive and release (name). We are both happy and free!"
      I like that! I wish compassion came as naturally from me as it seems to come from you.

      My Reiki teacher taught me this one:

      You are not here to take on my issues, and I am not here to take on your issues, but to be a channel of Universal Love and Light!
      I decided to include the ranting and whatever is going on in my life as it gives context to the dreams. thanks to cygnus for pointing it out.

      This is a dream from last year:
      Flying Cats
      I am by a small tree in a meadow near the edge. I am sitting under the tree trying to figure out a rubik's cube but just when I am about to solve it all the colors are all messed up again. I notice a shadow fall on me so I turn around and look into the tree. There is an owl sitting on the branch looking at me. Then it swoops out of the tree and turns into half-cat in midair. As it lands it turns into all cat. The cat comes up and rubs against my legs and I pet it. It is purring. Then another owl jumps out of the tree and turns into a cat and comes over. Pretty soon there are about five owls jumping out of the tree turning into cats and jumping back, turning into owls and landing back in the tree. They keep doing this. As they land they roll around on their backs like happy cats when they get high on catnip. They are like little owl/cat griffins.

      Another dream from last year:

      The Story Time Cafe Presents: A Night In the Faerie Kingdom
      I am with Mieko one late full moon night in a park. I give her one of my magic potions. We share it actually. It is Datura and Mushroom tea I want to show her a little bit of my world, you know? Because she has never known anything out of the ordinary.

      We walk around and we walk up to a large oak tree. There is a wooden door in the side of the oak tree with a brass knocker on it and a doornob and wrought iron hinges. "Watch this!" I say and I knock on the door. An old elf lady answers the door. She is about four feet tall and wearing a shawl.
      "Come in, come in!" She says. Mieko seems apprehensive so I smile at her as if to say "It's alright, come on." And we walk in down a spiral staircase. The old lady is very happy to have us there. The stairway opens into a large living room/kitchen. It is dimly lit. She introduces us to her husband who is an old hippie elf. He looks like he had a hard life smoking pot so he decided to retire, relax and smoke pot, you know the kind? He smiles at us but seems too stoned to talk.
      The wife offers us some cookies (elves make the best cookies) but I politely decline and I give Mieko a look as if to say "don't eat food from this world if you want to come back." The wife says that the cookies used to turn out better when they used wood to burn in the oven, but the park rangers made them switch to gas. I think that is funny that 1. the park rangers even know you guys are here, and 2. They could make you change from wood to gas.
      Together the husband and wife lead us back to the staircase which goes deeper into the ground. I can see that there is a whole world down there! Or a whole underground city village full of little houses like this. The husband says "Won't you go deeper?" I want to go but Mieko wants to go home and fold laundry.
      So we don't go. We climb back up the stairs and out the tree trunk and there we are next to the old oak tree again. The breeze blows the branch aside and a beam of moonlight lands on me and when it does, I see that really I am all alone burying a toad under the tree! It is kind of like in the first pirates of the Caribbean movie when the moon shines on the bad pirates you see who they really are: skeletons. But in this case I was really alone burying a toad, not with Mieko! I felt confused like I was having a Datura flashback.

      Anyway, that lasts for only a second and Mieko and I go into town to a place called "The Story Time Cafe". This is a place parents can bring their children at night with their sleeping bags and pillows and leave them there while the employees read the kids stories all night so the parents can go out. All the parents are going to this concert so we go also.

      At the concert I wander away from Mieko and run into the old hippie elf! He has some more hippie elf friends with them and they ask me to be in their band! They like the way I play music. I say "Well, I'll have to think about it. I don't think I can make it down underground for practice that often."
      "That's OK!" said the hippie elf. "We can come up here to practice, but we will have to play shows underground." "Alright!" I say.

      I run into Mieko again and I tell her about it but she says that I won't have time to be in a band because I have to mow the lawn everyday.

      Then I am on the stage at the Story Time Cafe telling this to the kids. It was all a story I was telling! I am sitting up in a sleeping bag on stage.

      Wow!! Both awesome dreams!!

      The part where you're burying a toad under a tree sounds very Tom Sawyer to me... Tom and Huck taking a dead cat out in the woods at night to a tree stump full of rain water... something to try to make magic I think.

      I want some Owl-cats to come play with me!!!
