      Daniel Love's Lucid Dream Portal and the Nightly Forest DEILD

      Date: 01/04/2021—02/04/2021

      Awakening: 11.55pm
      Return to bed: 3.45am
      Method: indirect
      Attempt: successful
      Awakening: 11am
      Phase experience: nightly forest Okorogheye

      DREAM STATE

      Me and my family live in a strange neighbourhood and there are reports of a murderous monster at large who breaks into people's homes and kills them. At night, we are all lying on the floor and aim to remain still as it is understood that, like a tyrannosaur, the creature is unable to see stationary objects. We have a black cat that won't stay still and keeps meowing. We worry about the animal.

      I pull the blinds of the kitchen window down in the same strange house that I take to be my normal home. I serve mashed potatoes and corned beef and quickly run upstairs to tell my wife dinner is ready. Upon returning to the kitchen, I notice that the corned beef is missing and wonder who stole it. I leave the house to get more corned beef but can't find the shop, so I head back to the house, but before I can reach it, I wake up.

      WAKING STATE

      I jot down the dreams I recall and watch a program on TV about police officers arresting criminals. Before returning to bed to sleep, I use the loo and watch an episode of the Lucid Dream Portal podcast about living a lucid life. It's a brilliant Q&A by Daniel Love about lucid dreams and the concept of lucid living. Quite insightful eloquence that starts by mentioning a young and depressed generation currently subscribing to flimsy, fairy-tale tosh of shifting their focus to alternate realities as they access hybrid phase states of the brain which are often responsible for autoscopic hallucinations and lucid dreaming.

      Despite being the target of fierce vitriol by the online community of 'reality-shifters', expert lucid dreamer Daniel Love shows compassion for these misguided youngsters, making it incumbent upon adults to teach and guide them in order to safeguard against worldviews divorced from reality which might ultimately prove to be harmful—especially once such beliefs are hijacked by cultish, charismatic and self-interested individuals seeking to form esoteric movements for personal gain and distinction (as we have seen with New Agers and the 'astral projection' concept).

      Once in bed, I toss and turn for a bit and finally lose consciousness laying on my side. When I come to, I realise I haven't moved and make out strange sounds.

      PHASE STATE

      At first I think it's raining outside, but as the sound grows louder, it starts to resemble strong static in my head. 'I must separate from the body!' I think to myself. It appears that I'm laying on my stomach, so I use my arms to push against the bed in order to rise up, but get sucked back down. I almost give up, but suddenly I realise that I could just roll over and out of bed, so I do exactly that to stand in a dark replica of the bedroom. There is moonlight coming from the windows and I open the balcony door and get ready to jump and fly away. Just as I'm getting ready to propel myself from the railing, I pause in doubt: 'What if I'm awake and about to jump to my death?'

      I turn to the open door and push against it with my fist in order to see if I can make my arm go through its white surface like a ghost. My arm slides through the object with little resistance, proving the surroundings to be phantom in nature. I waste no time in jumping off the balcony to quickly acquire a bird's-eye view of neighbouring houses under an ultramarine night sky. I fly well beyond the River Crane to find that, unlike the real world, the landscape is defined by forest all the way to the horizon.

      I land amidst trees, feeling grass and twigs beneath my feet, as I consider the possibility that this out-of-body experience might provide some clues on how to find Richard Okorogheye, a young man with sickle cell disease who has been missing in the real world for almost two weeks. I walk through the woods but neglect to maintain the phase, which leads to falling asleep, vague dreaming and finally waking up.

      I guess I'm just a bit critical that's all. I see Daniel as more of an 'influencer' with a cult type following.

      An analogy would be the Kim Kardashian of the social media world, rather than someone with academic standing like Stephen LaBerge.

      I hope that answers your question.

      P.S. Apart from the DL speil I thought your dream was quite interesting.

      Yes, I get it. I found his portal entertaining though. I guess I described him as an 'expert' having learned that he was endorsed by Keith Hearne and seeing Andrew Holecek on his show, too. I've never read his book so I can't really comment on the depth of his knowledge about lucid dreaming. I come from Michael Raduga's School of Out-of-Body Travel myself, the only thing I can personally vouch for as having improved my practice over the years—apart from LaBerge's Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming. Cheers, mate!

      Yes I remember reading one of Hearns' books back in the early '90s. It got me hooked on the idea of lucid dreaming and related technology. Personally I do need to read more, although I have got EWOLD which I can recommend.

      BTW, pleased to meet you and good luck in your lucid endeavours.
