      Dream Prompt Thread

      Hi all! There are a lot of threads here for completing lucid tasks, so I thought it might be a good idea to create a thread for dream prompts, or dream incubation prompts. Rather than setting a goal to accomplish while lucid, try setting up a scenario to incubate either lucidly or nonlucidly. Exploring stories, plots, and environments is one of my favorite parts of dreaming, and since most people still dream nonlucidly more often than lucidly, let's help motivate each other to exert some control over the rest of our dreams.

      How this thread works:
      1. Post a prompt. Set the stage for the dreamer as if you were directing a play or movie. Describe the environment, the people, and the action, and really lean in to the details! What does it sound like in the giant cave? Which of the dream characters are angry, or elated? How cold is that pool of water? Go crazy!
      2. Attempt to incubate one of the prompts provided. If you're able to do so in any way, or even if you're unsuccessful but trying, reply to that post. Tell us what method you used to incubate the dream, whether it was lucid or nonlucid, what your experience was like in the dream. Spare no detail. Did it differ significantly from the prompt? What interesting things did you find? And by all means, you can attempt your own prompt after posting it and report your findings here.

      I'll start with a prompt of my own:

      Go forth and incubate!

      You feel the cold wind brush across your face and arms as you look out on the voluminous and highly energetic storm on the grassy hill with some flowers and a large mammoth tree, reaching for the sky, surely very old. You sit on your comfortable chair. You hear nothing, and are overcome by an eerie feeling as the storm approaches slowly but surely, nothing able to stop it. You smell a slight hint of flowers, but in the face of the impending storm, you are not interested in this. The low hanging shelf cloud starts enveloping the entire landscape in a darkness not far from the same kind of darkness that night causes. A shiver goes up your spine. Then, suddenly, a flash of light beams across the country, and just as quick as it came, it was gone again. But then, your ears are attacked by a harsh roar of thunder, startling you. You take your chair, quickly fold it together, and run to your car. What a great construction foldable furniture is, you think, nervous, as you approach your car. You look back at the storm for just a second, but that second was enough. The wall that is a shelf cloud was now right behind you, and you nearly trip over in awe over it's size. You're now at your car, and open the trunk and quickly throw in the chair. It landed in a way that you'd break it if you closed the trunk, so you quickly knock it deeper inside and slam the trunk shut. Then you feel something hit you, a sharp pain on your shoulder, as well as the feeling of cold at that spot. You touch that spot, and you grab a piece of ice cold hail, about 4 centimeters in size, you estimate. You quickly drop it and run to the driver's seat of your car. You face the mammoth tree. Then, suddenly, your senses are attacked by a sharp snap and an unbelievably bright light. The next thing you know is that you see the mammoth tree, smoking, burnt to a crisp and the leaves burning. Then, suddenly, you see suddenly what seems to be a piece of it slipping away... no, wait, the entire half of the tree is cleanly cut in half, and it's all falling! You quickly start the car.

      Went a bit crazy, but this is a dream I'd find cool to be lucid in. Maybe all the detail is hard to remember, but I don't know, I never incubated a dream. I'll do my first attempt if anybody writes a more calm dream to incubate, since a wild dream would probably wake me up if I got lucid.

      This is great, I love the imagery! There's something really majestic about a single sequoia in a storm. Makes me want to go storm chasing.

      I think it's a great level of detail. Even if the resulting dream doesn't follow every point, your description sets the stage really well. Unfortunately I only got 5 hours last night, but over the next week I'll be trying to incubate both of our prompts before bed & at WBTB to see if one or both of them come up in my dreams.

      Wow, thanks Didn't expect my prompt to be that good. I'll be happy to see if it works.

      Cool

      I saw this thread way back when you started it and thought about writing something then, but wasn't quite sure what. Before, I felt like I might make it too long, too. But even so, it's been a while, so I think I should give this a shot. I'll try to keep it generic so anyone can appreciate it.



      Spoiler for Impromptu sci-fi adventure:


      Let me know how that sounded.
