It was probably the most vivid and clear lucid dream I have ever had. I was totally aware that I was dreaming and when usually the dream characters are trying to convince me otherwise this time they accepted it. I was in an apartment and I was looking out of the window. It was late October or so, the trees didn’t have leaves, but then I was thinking that it should be September, and how much nicer that would be, the trees suddenly had colorful leaves on them. The colors were so bright and sparkling. It was so beautiful.
Then I left the apartment and walked to some other place (someone had erased the city centre that should have been on my way, and I was wondering that in the dream) where I met other people. There was this girl who had accidentally colored herself from head to toes. I was still aware that I was in a dream and I talked about that with others. Then I started to loose the control and waking up. It was so hard to keep my eyes open in the dream, it was like I had my contact lenses on and they were starting to dry and itch. (Usually I see myself in third person in dreams, but not this time). I tried to keep up with the dream and not lose it, but the final kill was when my boyfriends alarm clock rang.
It was a nice lucid dream even though I didn’t have that much chance to alter things. I guess I really didn’t want to, I just wanted to see what the dream has for me. 4 days ago
I think I was a bit sleep deprived. I dreamed about wheels that were not round and needed to be replaced. About one of my co-workers (who has a shaved head) wearing a wig. About a restaurant with some very yummy Italian food. About my fried Giusy and her family. Also about a ceramic stoneware tablet, it was a decorative item, with a wooden stand. It had strange markings all over it and drawings, and little model animals which were removable (I think I remember a giraffe and a crocodile). A piece of the tablet got broken off. 3 months ago
gonna have to back off my pursuit of this for a bit because of the new job. Not completely, but some if the tactics I was using are just too distracting while I am concentrating so much effort on learning the new job. I will continue trying to trigger my waking and sleeping response to the sound of crickets, because I have an alarm I can set in the night that sounds like crickets. It will be a good trigger, when I can work on it, but I can’t set the alarm during work anymore right now, it is just too distracting (for me, no one else, and there are no rules against it at this job).
I will resume more aggressive trigger practice after I am more focused and confident at work. 3 months ago
I dreamed about President and Mrs. Obama and their daughters last night. I am not especially fond of them, but he IS our president, so I was gracious and welcoming. My house was a wreck! LOL, I said to the president, my Mother always told me that I should keep my house clean, because you just never know when the president will just drop in on you!
They seemed like very nice people (I guess you don’t get the be president by being an Ass hole… right?). The visit seemed very informal and personal. I had my picture taken with Mr. Obama.
Crazy… I have NEVER had a dream like that before…
There was more to the dream… but the other stuff was just normal dream stuff about losing keys and cameras and kids being in danger and me rescuing them. Kids refusing to do as they are told, and me pulling rank to get them to obey. 3 months ago
doing some of the stuff suggested here:
Especially, set my clock for 5 hours after bedtime, stay awake for a bit while thinking about lucidity, then go back to sleep using the “MILD” method.
Also mark a large a on my hand to remind me to challenge my awakeness off and on every day. When I do this I will look into a mirror, or jump into the air to see if I am dreaming. 4 months ago
Well… I am sleeping better, dreaming more, and remembering my dreams more reliably (though last nights dreams really weren’t worth writing down).
I believe it is time to start doing the daily exercises that will help me reach lucidity in my dreams.
Guess I better read up again on what those exercises are, I remember some, but have forgotten some too. 4 months ago
this is going entirely the wrong direction right now. I know I dreamed, and I have a foggy recollection of dancing naked women with colorful swirling patterns painted on their bodies… nice! but I don’t remember much else except locking up my very large house and worrying about forgetting some of the door. This is a dream that recurs with me a lot. LOL There was also something about driving, like four wheeling or something like that, but I really don’t remember.
Didn’t sleep too well last night, nose was stuffy. 4 months ago
Dreamed that the place I work (and I am unemployed in real life right now) was having a miniature car race, which they do every month, and apparently this was not my first. Today I was driving a miniature green Miata (though it looked more like an old Saab or Volvo). I was winning and the little car was pulling all the hills way better than anyone else’s, but I took a wrong turn and ended up finishing last. Afterwards we all got together for refreshments, it was all in good fun.
In another dream last night I dreamed I stole several hundred dollars (I am really a very honest person, and would NEVER do such a thing!) Dreams are so weird! 4 months ago
I don’t remember as vividly as that last one. I know I dreamed that I was in a trailer house in Naturita and there was a flood caused by an overflowed irrigation ditch. the flood could have been avoided if the water control people had opened the flood gates, but they did not. It made me angry (that theme seems to be recurring lately). I dreamed I saw the water coming, it broke through the windows and doors and swept me away. I thought I was going to die. The water was putrid and dirty like sewer water. I wanted to leave, but I had to do my laundry before I could. There were bras in my laundry. After I did my laundry, we left and went up the valley to a friend’s house to get away from the flood. 4 months ago
Of reconncting with a childhood friend. He was 2 years older than I. We were reminiscing, he was teasing me about an incident wherein as children he had asked me the names of a mares vulva, and at age 5, I didn’t know. I was 5 and he was 7, but he didn’t know so he asked me. He however remembered this as happening when we were 18 and 20. We also remembered, how as Children,we thought that God watched us from above, and wondered how God could hear our prayers from way up above us outside our house?
I also dreamed that my neice was angry with me so she was sitting on my doorstep because of her anger and would neither leave nor come inside. I dreamed that My Sister-in-law had a retarded foster child that she would send to Angelo’s house to play sometimes. Although I didn’t live there, I was visiting for a few days. I answered the door and let her in, then I closed the bedroom doors and put away the paints that the other children had been using, so she wouldn’t get into them. I remember feeling annoyed about having to entertain her. I didn’t really want to.
Then I dreamed that a friend was having a party. Apparently I was not invited, but someone asked me to go over there at the end of the party to see if anyone needed a ride home. I was annoyed at this also. When I got there, no one wanted a ride home even though they had been drinking, and I had not. After they left, my friend asked me if I wanted to eat. She had roasted a duck and a goat. I took a duck drumstick. It was very fatty. I asked why no one had eaten any of it. She said they were mad at her, because she had only paid the man $65 (or $69 I don’t remember now). They had given her over $120 to pay him for the animals but she had struck a deal and was proud of herself for saving them the money which she returned. They were angry with her about it. They said that now the man would have nothing to eat because she paid him so little. 4 months ago
And actually dreaming nearly every night! I believe my next step is to keep track of my dreams, practice remembering and journaling them. I will start journaling my dreams here. I will try to do this every day. 4 months ago
