      Life-Changing Dreams

      In this thread I want everybody to post their life-changing dreams.

      I don't keep a DJ anymore so no colors sorry!


      I was on *coughpandoracough* with people from lord of the rings. [skips irrelevant details]

      [skips more irrelevant details]

      It was in the Flux on a mountain, so being on the floating mountain, there were tons of tiny floating rocks on it, making a sort of staircase where you had to jump up and jump tiny distances. Really cool actually.

      I got to the top and I had a pet. Not a real animal at all, not going to go into the detail to explain it.

      Anyhow, I was laying down on a sort of balcony-peninsula thing that was above the ground with my pet and just having fun.

      It gave me a great appreciation for animal companionship and i've been in an absolutely wonderful mood since.

      Nice topic! I'll have a trawl through my DJ and post a good one. Or, if no life-changing ones present themselves, I'll wait to have one!

      If it were life-changing, you'd remember right now.

      Haha I suppose you're right! I had a look in my DJ and picked out my very first LD. It really was life-changing. The first time I realised there was actually a matrix-like world inside my head which is as real as real life. Its realism actually shocked me, and it led to a whole lot more.

      First Totally Stable Lucid (DILD)

      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      I fell asleep in the late afternoon after having a shower and listening to my ipod for about an hour. I didn't attempt to WILD, in fact I didn't even intend to fall asleep.

      I know there was a dream which led me to becoming lucid, but I can't remember what it was. Recall isn't the best today. The first moment of lucidity I can recall was me sitting in the passenger seat of my mum's car (purple Renault Megane). My mum was driving, and somebody else was definately there, but I have no idea who it was, never turned round to look. We were in a multi-story car park (Castlecourt car park, for anyone in Northern Ireland!) As soon as I realised I had finally achieved being independantly aware in a dream, everything started to fade out. I remembered reading on the DV forums that a good way to stabilise a dream and increase vividness is to handle and feel an object, get your senses involved. I quickly glanced around the car's dashboard and could see nothing. I noticed the car's radio, and desperately pressed the "tape eject" button. To my enormous relief, a gray tape popped out, and I turned it over in my hands for about 30 seconds, keeping me in the dream.

      The most amazing thing about this was that it was a conscious decision to slowly lift and move my arm to the button. I could feel my arm muscles working and all the while I was thinking, "This is amazing, it's like I'm in another dimension, and completely asleep!"
      I felt like it took a bit of mental acrobatics to seperate my awareness of my actual body from my dream body, and moving my arm consciously was slow, like learning to walk.

      The radio then activated itself and "Back in the U.S.S.R." by The Beatles came on. Strangely, this was the very first song (of about 25) I listened to in my ipod session earlier, but it put me in a really positive mood. My mum started to drive towards the barrier at the exit and started talking. Then I saw she had the head of my 14-year-old brother and was talking in his voice. I wasn't having him driving the car! I rotated his head 90 degrees round to me by grabbing its top. I looked at him and shook my head in exasperation at the weirdness that was invading this previously normal situation. I entertained myself by singing along to "Back in the U.S.S.R." and bobbing my head in time.

      I had the first of several false awakenings here.
      I only realised they were false awakenings when I woke up for real at the end- I was then surprised to be sleeping in a different place than I expected from my false awakenings.

      Where I woke up was weird indeed. It was a dingy, underground, but well-lit basement. The bed I was in was slightly above the level of the floor, and there was a kind of computer terminal on the rusty platform beside it. The computer terminal was playing the same Beatles song. I thought I had woken up for real (Weird how the brain makes unfamiliar places seem familiar just to trick you into thinking you've woken up, creating a bizzare dream-within-a-dream scenario.) Another of my brothers was walking around the huge basement room talking to someone round the corner. Since I was still in a deep state of relaxation (in this first layer of dreaming), I was able to fall right back into the same dream. (second layer) This time nothing happened at all and I just listened to the music for a bit, happy that I'd managed to get back in.

      I experienced another false awakening, but this time I had my head under the covers in a totally different position. I wondered, "Should I have been able to have moved in my sleep? Should sleep paralysis not have stopped me?" My brother was still walking around talking belligerantly, and the music was blasting now. I got up, and ate a cake. Yes, straight out of the blue. There was a cake sitting beside the computer teminal. It was small, only about 6 inches across and was full of jam, really sticky. It was absolutely delicious. Best cake ever. Part of me thought "I'm never getting back to sleep", but I decided I would be able to if I had been dreaming that I was dreaming. i.e. loud things in dreams would not stop you sleeping in dreams. Turns out I was right and I went to sleep almost right away.

      This time I went to find a girl I remembered from a non-lucid dream I had earlier. She was blonde and awesome, but of course, completely made up. I'll censor the next few minutes for the sake of decency! Unfortunately, I decided NOT to have full sex with her because I was genuinely worried I would start sleep-thrusting in my bed, and that could be embarrassing if anyone walked in... (I remembered that my real bedroom door had been left slightly open)
      By the way, any readers of this, does that happen??? I'm pretty anxious to know!!

      I had yet another false awakening to the basement room. I must have been nearly ready to wake up for real here because I had occasional flashes of awareness of my own body in bed. Once, I could really feel the numbness of sleep paralysis. To try and anchor myself in the dream-world and avoid unneccessary waking, I climbed around the edges of my dream-bed (which bacame extremely long suddenly :S), feeling the wood which made up the frame very carefully. Not long before I woke up, I opened my real eyes, and I could see an image of my wall on top of what I could see in the dream, which was pretty crazy.

      Can't wait for the next one!

      Hmm...a life changing dream? I don't think I have any....Define "life changing".
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Uh, there are quite a few? My first Lucid Nightmare, the time with the vampires who convinced me to think more about ALL life and not just humans, the one with the woman who helped me create Xildron, the first fight with Nerimeno...
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      Yeah, I'd like to know what the OP means by life-changing too. Any dream I vividly remembered changed my life in some way, though no one in particular changed it drastically.

      Just the aspect of lucidity has completely changed my life and given me a new appreciation for the human consciousness. to know that my brain culd create a dimmension so thoroughly realsitic and beautiful and for it all to exist just within my grasp is a truley enlightening revelation. The sheer beauty of moving my body within the dream world was complete blss. I felt a feeling of contentness that I have never experienced in waking life. I will always be in debt to dreamviews for aiding me to this conquest.

      By "life-changing" I mean something that really changed your outlook on life or something similar. Usually this is the first lucid, but i'd like to see anything after that as well.

      For example, my dream with a pet that I made up sitting in great scenery just gave me a huge love for animals.

      The following is dialog copy-pasted from my DJ. It is a grumpy old man's opinion on politics. This dream basically started my bizarre obsession with politics in LDs.

      Well of course everyone thinks they want one of them two-bit abortions, but they don't know... Right? *Mumble* Everyone knows you can't just make things change. At churches, they should tell you nothing ever changes, or everyone's just going to start doing drugs and *Mumble Mumble* like a Muslim. *Mumble* just like they say in every book. The Bible, the Koran, Oprah. Everyone knows *Mumble*

      I never had a dream that changed my life, but i did have some that made me ponder about them for a day or two.
