I wentout shopping/coffee with Jackie and while ordering coffee I put a kerrs toffee in my mouth and started chewing then the lady came for our order at first I ordered a small coffee with cream then realized I would have broken my challenge of no cream, sugar, processed food snd ordered a black mediu one. Then I told Jackie about my what I was doing and she said you just ate a candy.
I am concerned about following my healhy 4 life challenge while going out to eat with frineds. I went out twice for eating out and stuck to my diet. Once with my family and ordered a shrimp salad without dressing and gave the bread to my family. Then I went out with my friend Shannon and had a steak salad and said no bread or dressing. It’s my Birthday next week and Michele and I will probably do lunch and I hope she doesn’t make me a cake or decide to make me lnch at her house because I dont want to eat bread, treats or anything unhealthy. In three weeks I am going away with my sister for three days and we are doing to our other sisters too and I worry about when the food choices are in someone elses hands. I am going to bring oatmeal there and hope I can go to the store for afew fresh veggies or fruit ect or go out for meals and order exactly what I want. 0 seconds ago 2 weeks ago
In my dream last night my husband fell overboard on a cruise ship while taking a photograph. Also in my dream I was running a race in the trails it was a full marathon and I was half way through it and I asked an official which way to go and I took their advice and ended up at the end and only completed the half.
I am running a full marathon in three weeks and wonder if I am trained enough for it. 3 weeks ago
I dreamt that I visited a temple without walls on a mountain top. When I entered the temple I knelt in front of a statue of a smiling Jesus, when I started praying the statue began to glow and to grow and Jesus smiled at me. I woke up with a feeling of peace and joy. 10 months ago
How I did it: I used to be extremely interested in lucid dreams and astral projection around the age of 13 (yes, I was a strange little girl!)... I read lots of books and it got to the point where I could easily remember 5+ dreams a night but I never quite achieved a lucid dream. I may have had a few non-incubated lucid dreams though. As for astral projecting, I could quite easily leave my body physically, but mentally I never got over the fear of leaving my body. I probably made about 30 attempts to have an OBE but none were successful.
Recently I've been re-exploring my spirituality because it's been a part of my life that had been neglected. I've been skimming through old books on wisdom, emotions, self-esteem, meditation, yoga, buddhism, wicca, - even scientology - (yep!) - to see if anything spoke to me. And I re-read a book about lucid dreaming, nothing too extreme. Just a clearly written guide on lucid dreaming and the methods used for achieving the lucid dream.
I believe the reading of this book planted a seed of awareness in me; the mind is a powerful tool and I believe a part of me, even while asleep and dreaming, remembered that I should remember my dreams! So this morning I woke up (err afternoon, I've been having my normal vampire all-nighters again, my default sleeping pattern it would seem) with a cloudy brain, and something that felt juuuust out of reach. As I turned on the computer and checked my emails, some of my dream visions came back to me and I rushed onto 43things with excitement - time to re-start my dream life!
I'm going to purchase a small spiral notebook, decorate it with beautiful images and use it as a dream diary - the act of actually writing using a pen (or feather quill!) and paper is a powerful tool of habit and remembrance. Excellent for getting into the habit of recording dreams. And I record ANYTHING I can remember no matter how small, disjointed, strange. Even just feelings or emotions I wake up with.
Once I start remember lots of dreams, I will set aside a night or two every week to work on incubating dreams. After I successfully incubate dreams, I will work on incubating LUCID dreams. Read how I did it… 22 months ago
I remembered two dreams of last night
(1) I am in a bar of some sort, in a mall of some sort. There are round circular bar stools and tables and brown leather (pleather?) couches. I am waiting to have a job interview. I am sitting on the outside edge of the large bar which appears to be in a shopping centre, so I have full view of the mall too. I am sitting playing with my phone when three guys my age come up and start hanging out with me. One of them (a big guy) appears to be quite drunk. One of them is tall and is flirting with me, asking me about school etc. I realize I am in London Ontario and I talk about how I was at Fanshawe college 2 years ago (“but went backpacking in Mexico instead” which he seems quite impressed by) and now at University.
(2) I am locked in the bathroom of my childhood home (hideous yellow linoleum and all) and my sister is freaking out at me. She’s screaming at me something. She’s telling me she’s happier when she’s alone and feels good about herself when Im not there. Grandma is visiting and she makes a comment but I cant remember what it was. I talk to my sister face to face and I can see that she is intoxicated on alcohol or drugs. She is swaying and wearing a weird shiny dark green dress.
(3) I am in the bathroom with the computer on my legs, on a social networking site. There are two different sites I’m on (or two different laptops) both allow you to update your current ‘status’ and I update mine with a complete personal (VERY PERSONAL) history of my depression/anxiety/family issues etc. I panic when I see the status but cannot find the link to delete the status no matter how hard I try.
I for some reason am trying to remember Scotty’s last name and cannot.
/all I can remember, but since I haven’t remembered dreams in such a long time – this is a great start! 22 months ago
