      Task for the Month of July 2008

      Introduction:
      This topic is for the Lucid Tasks that are assigned by me or voted on by experiences 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.

      • 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 limitted access forum for people that complete the lucid task each month.

      Fireworks dream

      I became lucid in a dream this morning and I was inside a house where there was a large tv and the screen was like a mirror. I watched it and ran up to it, but the image of me ran backwords. I ran backwords and the image ran forwards. I remembered the fireworks task and tried to shoot fireworks out of my hands. At first nothing happened, but I kept trying and then I looked at the tv and fireworks were coming out of my hands on tv and exploding on tv. It was cool

      I finished both tasks about an hour ago. Yay for WILDs!

      Basic and advanced task:

      I was inside a house with a friend of mine, I was exploring the rooms and looking at everything. There were some beautiful painting in there that I wished I could bring into real life. I then remembered the beach task. The house was already located by the coast, so I could see a beach from the balcony. I walked right through the wall, onto the balcony, then flew down to the beach. The beach was boring and rocky, and it was really windy with high waves. I summoned sand in my hand and threw it around me. I decided to do the fireworks task instead for now. I reached my arm towards the sky, then let a small rocket shoot out from my hand. It went up, and exploded in purple colors. It was daylight, so it wasn't too visible, but I was still pleased. I did this a few more times, shooting off more than one at a time. After that, I woke up.
      A few WILDs later, I had finally managed to get to a nice beach, and I had to go to California for that. It had white sand, palm trees around, and not many people. I was carrying a bag which I dumped onto the sand, then took off my tshirt and shorts, revealing a bikini underneath. I love to swim when at the beach, so I ran into the water, and started swimming. I then went back to the beach where I talked to a DC, and realised that I was suddenly topless. He didn't seem to notice, so I didn't care.

      I want to try this task again. I think I may have done it while the poll was still open, so it might not count. I love going to the beach, so I will definitely be back again this month!

I try to apologize to her, and explain that I have no idea how I got here. As I explain waking up in bed unable to move, I remember that this is a dream. I look down at my hand, and see that I have only four fingers, and no thumb. I can still feel my thumb, and can wiggle it. It is just invisible for some reason.

      I look back up at the woman, who is standing silently in the middle of the blue tile bathroom with a creepy grin on her face. I tell her, "Stay calm, this is a dream." She looks....wrong. Her eyes and her grin are growing more monstrous by the minute. Sort of like when you stare at yourself in the mirror for too long. I start to get frightened and creeped out. I say, out loud, "I am going to close this door, and when I open it, it will lead to the beach. This is how you teleport in a lucid dream." I close the bathroom door, tell her to shut her eyes, and then I open it. The door opens into a sandy beach. I have to lean into the door to push it open through the sand.

      The beach looks like a cartoon. The colors are all too bright and plastic looking. It looks like the beach in Adam's long exposure photographs. I walk along the sand, and am amazed by how the water levels do not seem right. I think I am on a sand bar that is floating with the waves on the open ocean. I see other people on the beach. I walk by a young black man in his 20s or late teens. His casual, comfortable manner makes me think he is a native on this island. He is sitting on a low stone wall, calling out names. I continue walking past him, but soon hear him yell out my name. I stop dead in my tracks, and turn around. He is about 100 feet behind me, and staring right at me. I point at myself, and he silently mouths the word "Lucid?" I nod my head, yes. He waves over a group of girls who just got out of the ocean. The lead girl is an attractive Latina wearing a white tank top and jeans. He speaks with her briefly as I stand there watching like an idiot. The girl runs over to me, shakes my hand, and introduces herself...

      Basic Task

      I was on my doorstep with my sister. I realised i was dreaming and that she was real. I started thinking about how everything around me was not real. This gave me exfellent control and i was able to fly brilliantly. I flew over the houses, telling myself that there would be a beach. It took a while but i found a small, 10ft stretch of sand beside the water with 2 sunbeds and 2 men on it. I landed on it, and nothing really happened. So started hitting the men. They didnt move.

      End. Boring dream, but whatever...

      Hey i thought i would let you know that i completed the go to the beach task, the Ld was very short, heres how it goes.

      I did it through a DILD which is very odd because i have only been doing WBTB with WILD, i was at the beach and there was these Dune buggies, the beach was very odd because the sea was in the middle surrounded by hude sand hills, like the ones in the desert.
      All of a sudden i realised it was a dream, i attempted to climb one of the sand hills but all my strenght was gone for some reason.
      So instead i jumped right to the top and what i saw was pebbles, lots and lots of pebbles with a sailing boat in the middle.
      Then i woke up which was annoying because i wanted to fly.
      But hey there is always next time....

      I come to camp and go into the shows. An orange ghost is seeping out of the shower head (trust me, this dream gets weirder), and I run. I run from the shower, I run from camp to the river/ocean/beach I will mention later. By the time I get back, everyone is gone. I get scared that the ghost will attack again, but I see the dining hall. I go to it, seeing its lights are on, and there they are, the whole camp is in there eating. There was spaghetti sauce with parmesan cheese on it, and spaghetti noodles. Somehow we all get done before I can eat anything, so we go back to camp and get the tents flipped over to air them out. We flip over the CONCRETE showers to dry on the grass (at my house)House worked in, and I get scared the ghost is in there. It turns out to be a sleeping cot. (In real life, last week, they were green).
      The next day, we all go windsurfing (if that is what its called, using a sail to go surfing) at the beach/river/ocean, and I borrow a friend's, who I will call J (who is, in fact, a real life friend), I get pushed down near a building, and download (please, don't ask, it was a weird dream) a gene modification program, whos tagline is "Waiter yourself, Serve yourself, the third is msunderstood in several languages". to get back at them. I never do. Then I go to the water to get the windsurfing board from J, and get major air and really good speed (odd, since I have never even been surfing), and do several jumps, I try to jump off some rocks, and land in the water with my lungs half full with air, with a slight sinking. J takes away the windsurfing board, "Sorry, it's mine", and I struggle to get to the surface. I cannot, and I let go and breath in, not water, but air. As I am in total blackness from sinking down, I realize, "Holy crap! I am in a lucid dream!", but it is too late, I wake up just as I realize I am lucid.


      Woohoo! And, I actually saw the beach, which I didn't last post of mine.

      I couldn't for the life of me do last month's task, and they didn't even seem hard. I either forgot them when I went lucid, or just couldn't do them. But last night I remembered to do the fireworks one, although I failed, but it was so much fun to try.

      I woke up at around 2am, and went to the couch to try a WBTB lucid. Next thing I know, I "roll out" of my body.

      I walk toward the front door, and open it. The sky is dark, but from a distnce I see little white flecks, which seem to be the lights of a far off city. I start to make myself float toward it, but remember the advanced task for this month.

      So, I look at my hands and push them forward (sort of like Spiderman does when he shoots his webs). Nothing happens. I try it again, and say to myself that fireworks will shoot out. Nothing happens. I try it again, and small orange sparks come out of my hands, like cigarrette sparks, like when you're driving down the highway at night and some idiot flings his nasty cigarrette out the window, and little orange sparks light up the dark, like that.

      I clap my hands together and try it again, but then I start loosing lucidity,
      and the icemaker in the kitchen wakes me up.

      Okay. I don't know whether this counts, but I certainly tried.

      I'm in my Primary school in my dream which triggers lucidity. I head out into the playground, where there's a large group of people floating. It looks like synchronised swimming, but in the air. I remember the task and try to shoot fireworks first. I look down at my had and it's growing a lump. The lump grows and grows and then I shoot it off and it turns into what I know is a big box of fireworks. I try to make the fireworks go off, and the synchronised flying team join in. We're all stood (or floating) there yelling 'BOOM!' but it doesn't work.

      So I decide to try and find a beach. I fly up to get a better view of the surrounding area, and sure enough there are two beaches within flying reach. I try and fly to them, but for some reason I can't. It's like trying to push two positive magnets together. Instead, I land and try to walk but end up in a swamp. For some reason I just can't make it to a beach. So instead I pick up a convenient cat (grey and very cute and soft. I remember asking it what it signified but it didn't answer.) and start writing my dream up on dreamviews. Whilst in the dream. On a magic laptop that just appeared. I remember that all the posts had pictures of the person's dream for example, them as a mermaid on a beach. I then woke up.

      Ta-Dah!

      I'm so excited. This is my first successful Task of the Month. In my dream, I was standing outside on the porch of a house that I didn't recognize. It was twilight. I realized I was lucid and decided to try the task of the month. I started shooting white sparks out of my fingers. My fingers tingled while I was doing it. But I realized that I didn't exactly do the task since it called for fireworks and not sparks. So I tried again and raised my hands toward the sky. Fireworks came out of my hands and into the sky. These fireworks were white too. It got a little bit darker so I was able to see the fireworks. I love watching fireworks. I've seen them twice already this week (in person). I remember smiling. I started to think about the first task... going to the beach. Then I woke up. I never did get to the beach...

      The type of fireworks aren't defined as part of the Task. So I think if what comes out of your hand/finger resembles anything that you can buy at a firework stand, then it should count. The first one of yours sounds like a sparkler.

      I actually did it pretty similar....also out of my finger...and I also had a very real sensation as I did it. Mine, I would say, most resembled large fountain fireworks.

      I also think it's cool that some of us got it done on the 4th.

      Here is my dream (I almost got the Task wrong. I'm glad I realized it and moved on to the right one):


      Lucid Dream:

      I was in a new house that was supposed to be in Flagstaff AZ. A lot of things happen here, but one thing that I remember is suddenly worrying that I have never watered my front lawn yet, and I was so worried that it would be dead. I went outside to look and find that it is very green and nice. While I am out there, the sprinklers go on. and I'm greatful that they are automatic and that that's what kept the grass alive.

      At some point in the dream I gradually become aware that I am dreaming. This is not a sudden thing. I almost don't do anything about it. But then I realize what this means. I think of all the possibiliteis of what I could do.

      The first thing I decide that I want to do is to finally try the hand RC...while in a dream. I have always done this in real life and never in a dream. So at this point I feel that it would be wise to actually try this out while in a dream so I know the difference of how this feels when I do this awake and when I do it in a dream.

      I point the finger on my right hand and press it into the palm of my left hand. At first there seems to be no difference between this and when I do it IRL. Then I look at the back of my left hand. I can see a place start bulging out where I am pressing my finger. I press harder. The skin on the back on my left hand turns white as it it now sticking out about and inch. I wonder if I can actually get it to break the skin. I push harder. Finally my finger appears and I can see the details of my fingernail. There is no pain, only the feeling of pressure.

      I pull it back out and do it again. The results are similar, but it breaks through the skin faster this time. By the third time the finger comes through fairly quickly. At this point I'm satisflied and feel that I know what the finger RC feels like now.

      I then decide I want to try the DV Task of the Month. I try to remember what it is. Then I remember. It has something to do with eating pizza. I look around. I'm still in the kitchen. I open the fridge and see a frozen pizza. I pull out the box and open it. Since it was in the fridge and not the freezer, it's very soft and tears easily. As I hold the cold piece of pizza, I notice that in my other hand I have a slice of hot pizza. I first take a bite of the hot pizza. I enjoy the taste and then decide to compare flavors. I then take a bite of the cold pizza. It has a different pizza flavor, but it still good in spite of being cold.

      As I am chewing, I suddenly have doubts that this was the Task. I then remember that someone had used eating pizza as an example task (not true IRL). So I tried to think again about what the real task was. Finally it comes to me. I'm supposed to shoot fireworks out of my hand. I look out the door. It's daylight outside. Since I'm indoors, I decide that I will just stay there and give it a try.

      I look down at my right hand as I point my first finger out towards that other side of the room. I wonder how hard this will be. I concentrate. At first nothing happens, and I'm disappointed that I'm not able to do this. But then I think about all the other things that I have been able to do in LDs and I gain confidence. I point my finger out again and concentrate. Finally a spray of sparks comes out of the end of my finger. The sparks look a lot like the kind that come out of the fountain fireworks you buy at the fireworks stands. The colors are mostly red and gold. They shoot out in a jet all the way across the room.

      I stop and try it again. Another stream of lights comes out from my fingertip. I notice as I do it that my finger tip is getting hot, but not so hot that I'm in pain, but the sensation of heat was very real. I look at my fingertip and notice that my fingernail is glowing red from the heat.

      I don't remember what happens after this point. I think I have a FA and try to write it down. Finally I wake up for real and write down notes.

      i went to my favorite beach in a recent lucid.
      if any one knows it on here you will agree it is an awesome place to go.it is old orchard beach in maine except my favorite part is the northern end called pine point.there is a huge sand bar and the sand is clean and white literally no trash in sight.no seaweed either and it is mica sand so it is sparkly too.there is a breakwater also between the river and bay.when it is the full moon you can walk at least two miles out on sandbars and if anyone on here has been there they know i'm not exaggerating at all.it is awesome...i haven't been in about two years... *sigh* oh wells, thank god for lucid dreams! .in my dream i was with my dead doggie sadie and we went out on the sandbars because it was the full moon.we changed into mermaids and swam together for a while i guess it was more of a memoryish dream more than anything actually happening.it was nice though.

It took a while but i found a small, 10ft stretch of sand beside the water with 2 sunbeds and 2 men on it. I landed on it, and nothing really happened. So started hitting the men. They didnt move.

      End. Boring dream, but whatever...

      This sucks:

      I was in a McDonald's eating a huge pile of hamburgers by myself. (Weird because I don't eat there much in real life and I never get hamburgers.) I tried to take a drink of my soda but it was empty. I go back to the fountain to fill it up but no soda comes out. Suddenly I realize, I'm dreaming! (Electrical stuff never works in my dreams.)

      I try to remember the task of the month but only the basic task was coming to me. So I picture the McDonald's right next to the beach. I walk outside and am unsurprised to see it off in the distance. I start running toward it, but as i do, it slides further and further away. I stop, and try to summon a horse.

      It worked and one galloped at me and stopped at my side. I got on and started riding toward the beach. When it seemed like I was about to kill me the horse stopped and flung me off toward it. I hit the ground and woke up.

      I'm hoping to do the tasks tonight. Coming on here and reading other's experiences is always a good way to incubate the tasks. Last night I just couldn't remember the beach one...

      Wish me luck!
