      The different ways that I have screwed up my lucid dreams.

      sloth:
      Time with Dream Views: Four weeks
      Number of lucid dreams attempted since joining: Four.
      Number of lucid dreams experienced since joining: Four.
      Number of lucid dreams ruined for stupid, stupid reasons since joining: Three.

      HORRIBLE FAILURE #1: The first one was nice and clear. I fell right into the dream, and found myself in a wooden room. Everything in the room was wooden. I thought it looked nice, but I didn't like it inside. I wanted to go outside, so I walked through the various rooms, looking for the door. I found it down a hallway. Outside was forestland. The forest reminded me of home, and I instantly became homesick. I got sad, and bailed out...

      HORRIBLE FAILURE #2: Again, I fell right into this dream. Everything was nice and clear. This was one of those powerful dreams that you don't get everyday.
      I was standing on a hill. I looked around, and I could see for miles. I was impressed with my dreamscape, and stood, admiring it for several minutes.
      On one side of this hill was a very large cliff. At the bottom of the cliff, I saw a small twinkle.
      I figured that my dream was trying to show me something, so I turned around, and dove backward off the cliff, letting myself fall until I was nearing the bottom, where I took control, and glided down softly. I usually have fun with my flying.
      The twinkle was a doorway. It occurred to me somehow that on the other side of the doorway was waking consciousness... the real world. I thought, 'Wow, if I go through this door, and enter actual consciousness, while in a dream, I will be able to move things with my mind when I am awake AS WELL as when I am asleep.
      I stepped through the door to waking consciousness, and well... woke up.

      HORRIBLE FAILURE #3: Happened yesterday morning.
      This one started out blurry. I was dissappointed, but decided to try to make the best out of this dream. I started working on making things clear, and I was losing the battle. I knew that I was looking at a rug, but it was terribly blurry. I tried commanding everything to become clear, but it didn't work at all. I became frustrated.
      Suddenly, I heard my girlfriend yell out, 'Brent!'
      To which I responded, 'What?'
      'Are you ready to open up the dog?'
      'No. I'm trying to lucid dream right now. Leave me alone.'
      I became so angry about being interrupted that I woke up, to find my girlfriend comfortably asleep beside me.

      ...Open up the dog!? WTF!?
      ...and what made me think that I was acutally shouting across the house while in a dream?

      I'll keep this post updated with all of my latest FAILURES.

      LOL...open up the dog

      Those are pretty funny. Seriosly, though, I don't think there's something to complain about. I still haven't really gotten control at all (well, I fllew once, but that was before i knew what LDing was, and I forgot about it being a dream after like 10 seconds. I've only had 8 LDs, and I don't have recall of 4. I think instead of being pissed at failing, bbe happy your LDing. Look on the bright side.

      EDIT:

      failing looks almost as fun as succeeding. LOL. Can't wait to have some ridiculous LDs (or any good ones at all (with control)).

      ooh. I'm not really pissed about it. I am taking it with humor. Over time, I have become comfortable in knowing that I can do it again, any time that I have time to.

      At the same time, I get used to them. Before I found this site, I took them for granted. At this point, it's like when you drop your pencil, and it's really no big deal, but you're really annoyed by it.

      Anyway. I still think it's more funny than anything. I've just had a bad streak lately.

      That last one really made me laugh. Rofl....Open up the dog. I can't wait until I fail some of mine. It will be a really good learning experience.

      I had a kind of random one too last night. I won't share the whole dream, but I will share the part where I got lucid (to see the comple version read my DJ)

      I am walking with a couple friends at the bottom of some mountain. Suddenly I get ultra-pissed, and take this jar I am carying against the ground. The top flies off, and this little baby pops out of the jar (wtf). I think oh shit, I think I just killed the baby. I then go over to the jar, and take the top and bottom. Inside that is a little grenade like container (not a grenade, just same size/shape/general design). I twist it open, hoping it really isn't a grenade, adn desperately wishing that the baby is in there, but he isn't. Then, out of no where, I realize "I'm dreaming. Time to go have some fun, but first I need to put the baby in its jar." I look down, saying that when I look up a bit, the baby will be in front of me, but when I look up it isn't. I try again, but it fails. I then wake up.

      2 questions arise from this. 1.wtf is the baby doing in the jar in the first place? 2. why the heck didn't i try to stabilize the dream?

      Just so you understand, I love little children, and would NEVER stuff one in a jar or do anything else cruel and torturous to a baby, but in the dream this seemed totally normal. It might make more sense if you read my journal entry (which I haven't put in yet, give me 20 minutes). Anyways, just felt like sharing this dream, as it felt on topic.

      isn't that a good idee?

      I should have done that from the start. Is it possible for some nice admin to merge the two posts?

      Puhleeeeeez?

      I don't think that's possible. We are able to split topics, but there's no mod option (that I can see) to merge them. Sorry.
