      Task of the Month for December 2012



      Introduction:
      This topic is for the Lucid Tasks that are assigned by the Dream Guide Team or voted on by experienced dreamers. Please attempt one or both of these tasks throughout the month.

      Report back in this thread, even if you didn't successfully accomplish the task, your efforts should make interesting reading! This is required in order to get credit, it is no longer sufficient just to say that you did it.

      When you complete a task: go to your control panel, then to permission groups, and request to be in the group that applies to the task that you've done. Of course you still need to post the dream here because we check.


      Whoever completes either of these tasks gets the following goodies until the end of the month:
      • Your name will be displayed in ORANGE in the online members list at the bottom of the main forum page.
      • You will receive a special title and badge.
      • You will receive access to the "Lucid Task Club" which is a limited access forum for people that complete the lucid task each month.

      Tasks for this month:
      Basic Task i - Sing a Christmas Carol. Get the lyrics correct.

      Basic Task ii - Change the weather by making it snow.

      Advanced Task i - Locate the aurora borealis, fly into the atmosphere and find out who or what is creating it. Create an aurora borealis of your own while you're up there.

      Advanced Task ii - Find the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future and experience what they have to show you.

      Those are nicely creative Advanced Tasks. They sound like they'd be fun to explore.

      I sing and play music in dreams a lot, so I'll probably be a good bet for the first one. The snow thing could be a challenge since I don't normally exert a lot of control, but who knows.

      I'm the same way, singing isn't too hard. And I have alot of bad luck with weather control, and even some environmental control in general. So that one should be some good practice for us!

      Can't wait to try these out! Hoping to get one down
      Check out my DreamViews Podcast with OpheliaBlue!

      The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary.

      No sailor controls the sea. Only a foolish sailor would say such a thing. Similarly, no lucid dreamer controls the dream.
      Like a sailor on the sea, we lucid dreamers direct our perceptual awareness within the larger state of dreaming.

      The tasks are nice, but they have a religious theme. Not every one is christian here in dreamviews. I might sound a religious fanatic but it's not the case. The problem is that I don't celebrate christmas, I don't know what aurora borealis means nor do I know any christmas carole, so these tasks seems boring to me. I might try the second basic task but it just feels like a lame task and I don't feel like wasting my lucid time on it. Again I must say that most of DV know these stuff and it will be a fun experience to do them and I'm not trying to say that you have to change the tasks or anything. I just wanted to make myself clear on why am I not going to try these tasks.

      The Aurora Borealis are the Northen lights. They can be seen any time of the year in northern countries like Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Canada or ever the UK if you're lucky! They're a very pretty natural phenomenon that produce bright lights and colours in the sky if that helps at all.

      These are really really cool task, especially the Aurora Borealis one but once again my sciencey mind would ruin the task for me as I already know what causes them! But to me those are pretty awesome tasks.

      Okay, I think that I achieved the Basic Task of the Month! (making it snow) I was actually just repeating a mantra to remind myself to make it snow, but this alone caused it to happen a little earlier than I expected.

      Great tasks this month... looking forward to trying several of these. (And probably this one again, since I didn't get to play in the snow like I'd hoped!)

      Spoiler for Task Details:

      Yea I think you're right Xanous and Wishfulthinker. I thought Aurora Borealis was something else. But the northren light's, that's great!

      The second basic task reminds me of something I did in a lucid dream once. Here's a little excerpt from my dream journal:

      "I'm a king sitting on a massive throne made of gold, ruby and diamond. The world bows down as I tell my second-in-command that I will grant these loyal servants great weather conditions for the entire year. He agrees to my decision and watches as the Earth goes from frost to an endless sight of grass."

      Jingle Bells is a non-religious carol, and I hardly consider songs about Santa Clause to have any religious connection.

      Think making it snow is boring? Weather control is an awesome skill. You could make a wild winter blizzard and that does not sound boring.

      The one about the ghosts, just means being shown moments in your past and future. It is from 'A Christmas Carol'. You would have a ghost come and show you a defining moment in your past, how it effects your present, and a possable future event. That again does not have any religious theme that I can see.

      I noted to OpheliaBlue last month that many of the tasks were Thanksgiving based, and that people outside of the US didn't celebrate it so the tasks weren't that appealing to everybody. I think this month she's done an excellent job at selecting a wide variety of tasks that can appeal to everybody. Plus, remember that there's 2 of each basic and advanced task. Choose the one that appeals more to you!

      And, if you really want to do the "Sing a Christmas Carol" one, it doesn't have to necessarily relate to Christmas. There are plenty of holiday songs that relate simply just to winter.

      Thanks RareCola, you beat me to it.

      And I forgot to mention, summoning even one of the ghosts will get you basic wings. Why not. It's Christmas Thanks for the idea Canis Lucidus.

      Aurora Borealis!!! Best task ever, I’m so excited for this one!
      I became lucid on the night of December 1st but the tasks hadn’t been posted yet (Australian time zone) so I decided to have a guess at what they might be! I was way off, but I thought I’d post my dream here anyway:

      I thought the task might have something to do with meeting Santa, so I conjured a small Santa toy in the bedroom where I was standing. He was dressed like Santa but had a short black beard, so I looked away for a moment, and when I looked back his beard had grown and turned white. I then used telekinesis to lift the toy in the air, and made him grow into a life-sized toy. When he finished growing, he turned from a toy into a real-life man. I was so excited to see Santa that I leapt towards him and gave him a huge hug. We fell back onto the bed and (much to my surprise,) he rolled me over onto my back and started having sex with me! I was totally weirded out, but I closed my eyes and thought, “young, hot Santa... turn into a young, hot Santa!” I opened my eyes again but he was still the same old overweight white-haired guy... I drew the line and bailed when he started using his ‘jingle bells’ to caress my body. I will never think of Santa the same way again!
