      Scary-ass lucid dream last night.

      This is the last post I'm making before leaving on a short hiatus. *Eyes signature* Just going to improve my LDing abilities and stuff. Try other hobbies out, etcetera.

      I have a tendancy to get a spike of DILDs when I fail to WILD, and fall asleep. Last night, I had a dream where I WILDed (felt spinning and falling sensations) and then rolled out of bed, going out into the street and changing the scene from dark to light by making the sun rise.

      When I woke up from that dream, I WILDed by trying DEILD. I fell half-asleep in the process because I wasn't aware enough, but when I raised my head and checked the alarm clock, I realized I successfully WILDed. I got up, sat up, and suddenly there was this black tentacle/claw-like thing coming up from the side of my bed (my bed's against the wall), and it scared the crap out of me.

      I found out earier that saying, 'no!' like with a dog when it does something bad, works. I also pointed and flicked my finger at it. It worked, and it went away. I swore I heard a 'sorry', too, but I can't remember what it sounded like. I continued on with my dream, but then I started to think about the tentacle coming out of anywhere again...

      And I was swarmed right then and there, and I woke up. ;~; My heart was beating twenty miles a minute.

      How can I forget about a scary or creepy event like that, within the dream?

      Just say and repeat to yourself, 'I'm dreaming, nothings real' and sooner or later it will go away, you just have to know that its not real and the fear will eventually go away.

      Are your dreams always filled with dark humor?

      Sounds simple enough. Wish there was an easier thing to do than that, though - it could take a while.

      Seems like it, now that you've mentioned it.

      In Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming, Laberge devotes a good portion of the book to nightmare resolution. I think you would do well to read it.

      In it, he describes a lucid nightmare dreamt by Paul Tholey (out of all of the dreams in the book, this one was my absolute favorite). It goes:

      Quote Originally Posted by Paul Tholey
      I became lucid, while being chased by a tiger and wanted to flee. I then pulled myself back together, stood my ground, and asked, "Who are you?" The tiger was taken aback but transformed into my father and answered, "I am your father and will now tell you what you are to do!" In contrast to my earlier dreams, I did not attempt to beat him but tried to get involved in a dialog with. I told him not to order me around. I rejected his threats and insults. On the other hand, I had to admit that some of my father's criticism was justified, and I decided to change my behavior accordingly. At that moment my father became friendly, and we shook hands. I asked him if he could help me, and he encouraged me to go my own way alone. My father then seemed to slip into my own body, and I remained alone in the dream.
      So, what Laberge talks about mostly is not trying to control your dream monster or escape it, but to face it. Don't fight it, but confront it. Ask it who it is or what it wants. Learn about it and hear it out. Laberge said that every single time there's a conflict in his dream, he considers it his duty to see it resolved as his first priority. I think that's an awesome way to continually evaluate and make piece with all the stuff going on in our subconscious minds.

      I have read in someones dreamlog to do the same thing. In addition you should demand a gift from the dream monster, after you confronted it. That is a very astonishing thought.

      Come, thick night,
      And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
      That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
      Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
      To cry, 'Hold, hold!'
      -- Macbeth, 1. 5

      When I was little I had a lot of nightmares quiet frequently, I am talking about almost every night here. It was like a bully that kept picking on the kid at school and I was the kid. It didn't help that I loved the book series Goosebumps and I had the scary blankets to go with it. I always stayed up looking at my closet then sleep and the nightmares begin, they where amity ville horror style dreams and always in darkness, pretty freaky stuff that went on for years. You know what mainly did it in for me with those nightmares? I finally got sick and tired of it and beat all the monsters and freakish things up in my dream and threw them off a speeding train.

      Guess what then? they never bothered me since. I know things can get pretty freaky like this one time I woke up to see this ore floating at the end of my bed and floating towards me and made a scary face. I was still dreaming but that only happened once. I hope this doesn't happen to you too often. I never had a tentacle come after me in my dreams, maybe because I love octopuses. If they are bothering you too much just kick there butt like I did.

      When it comes to faceless dark-themed horrors, I've found that the best way to deal with them is to (in some way, shape or form) accept them as a part of you. Rather than seeing them as an external force to defeat or even confront, start using the tentacle/claw-like things as extra arms. Alternately, absorb them and their energy. Yum, dark energy...

      YMMV, though. I've had people tell me that absorbing dark energy is bad for your health. But most of the good things in life are.

      I pick up a half-eaten copy of a book by Neil Gaiman, and decide this is all his fault.
