    Alone in the House

    by Tiktaalik on 01-21-2022 at 01:53 PM
    Alone in the house
    01/08/20
    Lucid #15 - DILD

    Iím laid on my old childhood bed in the dark. Everything feels completely normal and Iím simply relaxing and scrolling away on my phone when I see an image of the actor Donald Glover wearing a red suit and shades. I remember dreaming about him recently and decide to do a quick routine reality check. I do this with no real suspicion of my reality and Iím convinced this is waking life. I decide to try my vanishing ring check as the text change failed last time I tried. I close my hand and as I reopen it Iím astonished to see my fingers have become stubs and are twisted and bent in a mangled way. It is a dream! I canít believe it and I had no doubt I was awake before! I count my fingers to double check and count 6! Iím rather excited as it came as a complete surprise.

    I jump from my bed and walk onto the upstairs landing and feel a sort of rumble run up my back? The dream is trembling around me and it feels unstable and on the verge of collapse. I remind myself to stay calm and engage my senses as planned. First I listen and hear a faint noise in my ear like wind is passing by. I realise it must be my bedside fan which I remember I have on in waking life. I then try to turn the light on, not expecting it to work and sure enough it doesnít. I try again and this time the light does flicker on dimly. I keep twisting the knob and gradually it gets lighter and lighter but with a struggle. Things feel more stable now so I head downstairs slowly and feel the smooth, wooden banister as I do. Itís dark in the house and I appear to be completely alone which gives it quite an eerie atmosphere as if at any moment something scary is going to jump out at me. I see the light is on in the kitchen and I head toward it, wondering if the dream is trying to guide me there for some reason. The kitchen is also quiet and empty but I see cereal has been spilt and scattered all over the floor? I look around for an explanation but there isnít one? Itís as if something had happened here long before I arrived and maybe what did it is still lurking somewhere nearby. Again, it gives me the creeps so I decide itís time to get out of here.

    I head to the front door to see if I can use it to change the dream scene. I decide what I want to see on the other side and really focus. ďI will see a forest, I will see a forestĒ I repeat and really try to expect it is behind the door. Iím ready and just about to open the door when... Iím shaken and wake up in bed. My wife has just turned over and shaken me awake! I manage to keep my eyes closed and hope I can get back into the dream but I am too awake now and unable to do so.

    The House Tsunami

    by Tiktaalik on 12-13-2021 at 07:48 PM
    The House Tsunami
    26/07/20
    Lucid/ 14 - DILD

    Iím stood in a large living room in a spacious, modern house. It looks like a show home and all the rooms are empty and in pristine condition. They have high ceilings, bright white walls and the wooden floors have a polished finish. I walk through the room slowly and feel like Iíve been here before? As I reflect upon my surroundings I casually become aware that this is all a dream. I know I should stop and reality check to make sure but my mind is still wrapped up in the dream and I want to finish what Iím doing first. Itís then I stop myself and realise how silly that is as none of this is real and I donít even know what Iím doing here in the first place! My lucidity grows stronger now but I donít feel overly excited as I usually would and instead feel rather calm.

    I walk across the living area and turn on the light. Though they never usually work in my dreams Iím surprised to see it comes on as normal with no struggle? I then look around the empty room for something else to do but feel a little uninspired. Not wanting to waste the whole dream trapped in this empty house I decide to pursue a dream goal and change the location. I find a door to the right which I can use as a portal and stop to think about where I want it to take me. ďSomewhere peacefulĒ I decide on the spot. ďMaybe a forest with a nice gentle stream running through itĒ. With that decided I reach for the door handle but notice water is gushing out of the cracks in the frame? I look down and see itís starting to flood the room and has created a small stream across the floor like the one I imagined on the other side of the door. Iím a little hesitant now to open it as clearly a lot of water is on the other side. I look across the room and find a second door at the opposite side I can use instead but when I reach it I see water is also spraying out of the frame! Before I can react the door is blown off itís hinges and the walls collapse as a cascade of water comes bursting through! ďOh noĒ I think as it comes crashing toward me. With no time to escape the thundering waterfall, I simply turn my back to it. The foamy water hits my back, wraps around me and sweeps me off my feet. Iím taken forward by the fast torrent and then thrown high into the sky by a large wave.

    I see now the rest of the house has gone, washed away with the tsunami and now Iím hurtling through a dark abyss with a vast, roaring ocean below me. I feel completely helpless, with no control over the dream and suspect my unconscious mind is behind this and trying to expel me from the dream. ďWhoa!Ē I yell out as I reach pinnacle altitude and begin to fall down towards the large, rolling waves. Iím glad the water is there to break my fall but at the same time I believe the impact will surely wake me up. It doesnít and instead I plunge into the ocean like a projectile and torpedo through the dense, dark water until suddenly, I land flat on my front on a solid surface?

    I peer up and see Iím no longer underwater but laid on a wet, stone floor in some kind of cave? The space is dark and vast and I can see some grand structure in the distance. It looks like some kind of ancient, underwater temple carved from stone and reminds me of something youíd see in a Tomb Raider game. I only glimpse this for a brief moment and then my vision turns to complete darkness. My sight has gone but I can still feel the floor below me and cling onto the surface, hoping my sight will return. ďStop now! I want to keep going!Ē I plead with my unconscious, believing itís behind all of this. I wait for a response and I soon get one in the form of a thundering wave which I can hear rushing toward me. A powerful surge of water throws me across the space like a rag doll. It consumes me and Iím left disoriented and spinning under the water, my hearing muffled and my limbs thrashing. I try to breath in oxygen but instead I gasp and choke, unable to breath! Iím drowning and the sensation feels scarily real. Unable to breath, I hold my breath instead and drift under the water helplessly. Thankfully the ordeal doesnít last long and soon the dream ends and I wake up with a choke and take a much needed breath of air.

    Analysis: This was a strange one indeed. Never have I felt so out of control and at the mercy of a dream whilst lucid. At the time it truly felt like my unconscious was working against me and trying everything it could to stop me and wake me up as if it really wasnít happy with me been lucid. Of course, upon reflection my expectation that the dream was trying to stop me is probably what made it feel this way. Perhaps that niggling doubt that lucidity is somehow unnatural and interfering with the natural dreaming process triggered this idea. The water coming through the doors was probably triggered by my desire to have a stream in the forest but the tidal wave that followed felt completely out of my control though it was suspiciously reminiscent of that opening action sequence in Inception where water obliterates the building and wakes up Cobb and may have been what influenced the events. The vast ocean was impressive to see and made me think of that famous quote about the dreamer been able to control the dream as much as a sailor controls the sea and this may also have influenced the events. I wish I had time to explore the temple at the end as it felt like a special place and somewhere I was suppose to end up. Sadly the dream worked against me again and that final wave felt like the final word from the dream. The drowning sensation felt very realistic and was rather alarming to be left gasping for breath. Holding my breath at the end was probably what woke me and I was kind of relieved it did. A fascinating experience overall and I hope I can experience more weird and wonderful things like this.

    The Fruit Tiles

    by Tiktaalik on 11-29-2021 at 09:00 PM
    The Fruit tiles
    25/07/20
    Lucid #13 - DILD

    Iím sitting on the sofa in my parents living room watching TV with them. I notice some familiar tiles on the programme Iím watching, theyíre white kitchen tiles and have images of different fruit on them. ďI recognise those tiles?Ē I say unsure where from. I then notice something to my right and see the wall next to me is also layered in the exact same tiles? Iím confused by this odd coincidence and it triggers me to RC. I see random scribbles of text on each tile and do a text change check. I look away, not believing it will change as Iím sure Iím awake right now but as I look back the text has indeed changed! Iím in disbelief! So much so that I donít believe it and do the check again. It changes again and again a third time. I canít believe itís a dream and I was so sure I was awake! I think I must have fallen asleep just now whilst watching TV and this was some kind of false awakening (In reality I was simply asleep in my own bed).

    I get up and walk across the room and through the door which randomly leads straight into my brothers old bedroom. I believe thatís where Iím currently sleeping and think it would be cool if I went in there and somehow found my body asleep in bed! I open the door, itís dark but sure enough under the covers is the outline of my body. I dash in and start shaking my body. ďRise and shine!Ē I yell with glee. My body isnít waking up though and I start to realise itís just an inanimate dream character instead. The dream then fades away and I enter the void. I remember to try spin to see if that can re-stabilise the dream but without a body I just feel a dizzy, spinning sensation in my head, as If my consciousness is spinning in circles. It doesnít lead to anything and I wake up.

    Lucidity: Low
    Trigger: Oddity
    Reality check: Text change
    Length: 1 minute (approx.)
    Goals: None
    Lucid count: 13

    Analysis: Very low level lucid. Clearly wasnít thinking straight as I was half believing I could interact with my sleeping body in bed. A successful RC though and it was good to see that I remembered to try spinning even though it didnít work. The fruit tiles were actually from an old flat I used to live in for a short time.

    Summon the T.Rex!

    Summon the T.Rex!
    23/07/20
    Lucid #12 - DILD

    Iím walking through my childhood neighbourhood at night, talking with a group of friends I used to have but havenít spoken to in a long time. One of them playfully tackles another onto the grass and they start play fighting. Iím tackled as well and grab hold of my friends coat to wrestle with him. I suddenly realise the coat is weightless and as I lift it up I find itís empty? Heís gone!? I look around and see now everyoneís gone!? Not only that, itís now day light?! ďIím in a dream!Ē I realise!

    I try to remain calm as things feel a little blurry and unstable. I quickly grab some kind of concrete post and feel itís rough texture to ground myself and engage my senses. I then see some leaves on a tree and pluck one from a branch and inspect its veins. Iím then distracted by a car coming down the road and remember my goal to go along with the dream plot like an actor in a movie. I run in front of the car and yell ďstop!Ē The car stops and I go and bang on the window. Not knowing what the plot is I decide to make up my own and say ďthereís a T.Rex coming, let me in!Ē The couple in the car donít react and remain eerily still, looking forward like emotionless A.I. characters. They then drive off down the road and Iím left disappointed by their lack of participation. Suddenly I hear screams and see people running around the corner and up the road toward me, followed by a giant T.Rex! Iím amazed that I managed to summon a realistic dinosaur but Iím also a little nervous as it stomps toward me roaring.

    I either forget the next part or the dream jumps as I find myself hiding behind a wall and the T.Rex is stomping around and looking for me. I go in a large crate hoping to find a shot gun but itís empty so I pretend I have a shot gun instead. The dinosaur finds me and I pretend to cock my imaginary gun and shoot it whilst making the sound effects with my mouth like I would have done as a kid. It doesnít do anything so I run away as fast as I can up a tight spiral staircase with the T.rex hot on my heels. Itís become like a video game and each time it catches up I turn and shoot it with my imaginary gun hoping it will knock it back. The staircase seems to be going on forever and Iím a little scared the T.Rex will actually get me and hurt me even though itís a dream. Thankfully I see Iím a few steps away from the top and going to make it but my relief is followed by blurred vision and a sudden wake up.

    False awaken & Fly!

    by Tiktaalik on 09-26-2021 at 08:39 PM
    The guide on the scaffolding
    18/07/20
    Lucid #10 - DILD

    Iím entering a large city building block and heading up some wooden stairs. I enter a large room with layers of scaffolding and multiple wooden platforms rising up to the high ceiling. I see a friendly older lady stood on one of the platforms above wearing a suit and glasses. She smiles at me as if sheís been waiting for me to arrive. I climb a ladder up to the platform sheís stood on and as I reach the top she starts explaining something to me but I canít remember what it was. I wonder if sheís some kind of dream guide? (At this point Iím aware itís a dream but Iím not yet thinking clearly) She says a word that I donít recognise. I ask her what it means and she uses an analogy to explain it. It makes sense and I make a mental note to check the word when I wake up (annoyingly I forgot what it was!)

    It all gets a bit vague here but the next thing I remember Iím sat on one of the higher levels of the scaffolding with my legs hanging over the edge. Iím looking around at how real everything is and think Iíve been in this dream for a while now, maybe even 20 minutes (upon waking I donít believe this is correct) Iím quite impressed and the realism is uncanny to real life. After, I pull out a tube yogurt and start eating it. The room suddenly changes and Iím stood in the middle of a colourful, racing game track, like Mario Kart, with little cars racing toward me. As I keep eating the yogurt the dream keeps changing to different scenes like flicking through tv channels. Most of the scenes are racing car related though. I think it must be the sugar in the yogurt having some weird side effect on the dream? Everything then fades and Iím left in the blackness of the void.

    Iím only here for a few seconds before I feel acceleration, like Iím been pulled back into the dream. Itís similar to the sensations Iíve experienced during a WILD transition. I think I say something to myself like ďHold on, hold on!Ē as Iím pulled in. Whilst still in the dark I feel a floating sensation followed by an intense spinning like my whole body is spinning like a tornado. I worry my real body is doing this in bed and suddenly I awake on the floor in my childhood bedroom. I think I must have fallen out of bed and luckily I didnít hurt myselfÖ

    False awaken and Fly!
    18/07/20
    Lucid #11 - DILD

    I awake suddenly in a strange bedroom sat up in bed next to my wife. Iím over the moon as Iíve just had a lucid dream! I tell her about it and explain I nearly had a WILD. I then get out my phone and Iím eager to write it all down. ďWhy are you writing it down, thatís weird?Ē she says. I ignore her and open my dream journal. Just then a random lady comes in through the door wearing a face mask. Iím surprised to see her and wonder why sheís just walked into the room? She holds a phone in her hand and comes up to the bed as if ready to take a photo. Iím really confused. She then asks permission and starts pulling the covers off my legs. ďNo!Ē I say and pull them back. It all feels very bizarre and then it hits meÖ Am I still dreaming? I lift my hands to do a finger palm reality check. I know it rarely works so I try to really focus and start stabbing my finger into my palm relentlessly. At first it doesnít do anything and I get annoyed. ďCome on!Ē I grumble and just like that my finger starts to feel like itís prodding clay and soon my finger makes a small hole. Itís a dream! Iím in shock and there is no doubt. The lady sighs and does a Ďdamn it!í gesture with her arm as if sheís disappointed I figured it out. Iím not happy and a bit annoyed she was trying to trick me. I jump out of bed and exit through a door next to the bed straight into a back street. ďSee ya!Ē I say, delighted to be free.

    I walk outside and see ahead of me a pleasant looking suburban neighbourhood, with some grass and a big tree. I look up and see blue sky and know the conditions are perfect to fly. I donít waste any time and do as I planned. I stand straight, look up at the sky, put my fist in the air like superman and push off from the ground. I instantly begin to float upwards and Iím excited itís working but itís very slow, like Iím been pulled up by a slow tractor beam. I reach the height of a house but then feel like my body is weighing me down and gravity pulls me straight back to the ground.

    I try again and this time I float up steadier and I am pulled up past a house and a tree and watch as they get smaller and smaller below me. It seems Iíve got the hang of it and look back to the sky and see the clouds high up that I want to reach and keep my fist firmly pointed toward them. I feel like Iím getting really high now so I look back down again and see a birds eye view of rows of houses from far above. I should be frightened by the dizzying height but Iím not and think itís so cool! I look back at the sky and pass through wisps of thin cloud and then through a big thick grey one. This makes everything go a bit blurry and as I look around all I can see now is clouds and what could be the faint blue glow of the earthís atmosphere. I wonder if I should keep going and attempt to reach outer space but I decide not to over do it and enjoy this experience instead but just then all fades and I awake (for real this time).

    Waking Notes:

    Interesting overall experience with some dreaming firsts. The first dream was very low level lucid and I wasnít thinking as clearly as Iíd like and forgot a lot of the details. Things got rather confusing after as I experienced a WILD/ DEILD kind of experience and lost lucidity along the way and had my very first false awakening though it wasnít set in my real bedroom. Thankfully I noticed the strangeness of the new dream and was able to regain a higher level of lucidity. I remembered my dream goal and took off from the ground as planned for the first time. It wasnít quite the exhilarating flying experience I had imagined but a great first step. My focus on flying upward toward the sky was maybe why my flight was so linear.
