: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical April 20, 2008, 02:14:16 PM
I actually prefer to log my dreams in writing. However, I thought it would be cool to capture some of my more interesting dreams here. This one was just this morning.

The Dream:

I had a number of false awakenings this morning. In 2-3 cases, I looked over to the clock on the VCR and it showed as 5:06 am. The first 2-3 times I didn't catch it as a false awakening. By maybe the 4th time, I looked, saw 5:06 am and realized this was a replay of the last several dreams. I walked into the kitchen to double check the time on a different clock - 6:20 am. This time didn't line up with the other clock. Additionally, it was too dark out to be 6:20 am. I'm now lucid. The next thing I realize is I only have a T-shirt on and I'm naked from the waist down. I question if it's crucial to find my pants and determine it's just not important.

My intention given a FA or WILD was to open a space/time portal, go back to the room my high school band practiced in 20+ years ago and find my old band mate. He's presently in an LA band making a living putting out CD's and touring. I thought it would be interesting to tell him I'm from the future and play a song he would write 20 years later.

I kneel down in front of a wall, put my hands on it and work at dematerializing it. I have some trouble but ultimately succeed. I push through the jello-like wall. I close my eyes and visualize our practice room on the other side. Sometimes I succeed brilliantly at this. Not this time. First, I find myself bathed in bright pure white light. The experience is like what people describe in near death experiences. When I do open my eyes, I'm hundreds of feet in the air. I'm high above a dense forest, soaring at a high rate of speed being pulled by an invisible force. The tree canopy is very thick and I cannot see to the ground. There are greens, yellows and burgandies indicating a fall like scene.

The force pulling me along is allowing me to fly better than I can under my own mental power so I just go with the flow. After a minute of soaring up and down across the forest at high speed I realize I'm approaching a branch of a tree top. I do nothing to avoid it and instead ready myself for the collision. I hit it, deflect off and change coarse. I start to consider the relevance of the dream and wake.

Upon waking, I pondered whether the near death like experience transitioning into a wonderful flight was an example of tapping into a past incarnation of my conscious awareness.

It's actually faster for me to type out my dreams, but it's easier for me to do so in Thai. So in the end I always have to stick with my writing. However I'm just too lazy nowadays...

This has been a good month of LDing for me. Maybe it's the MM energy.

I promised to document my more interesting dreams. I had this one just last night. I've been working on summoning DC's. For what ever reason, this has been a challenge for me. Just to make it fun, I thought I would work on summoning the model 6 cylon from the new Battlestar Galactica series. Many of you will get that straight off. If you're unfamiliar with the series and want to know who I'm talking about, I'll save you the google search:

I had taken some galantamine and choline around 3 and stayed up till 4. I had a number of lucid and non-lucid dreams and woke to notice the sun starting to come up. I rolled over to get back to sleep. I felt some mild/short vibrations about my head. This is an unusual sequence for me but I was pretty sure I transitioned back into my dream space. I sat up with that usual disoriented feeling. I saw my dog on the odiment of the couch, and another copy of her on the floor. I'm now lucid.

I told myself I would find model 6 in my music room upstairs. I head that way. I have a very light feeling and my body wants to float rather than walk. I reach for a counter top and pull myself in the desired direction. I rub my hands to ground myself which works well. I walk past the 1st floor bathroom. The door is closed and the light is on. I wonder if she's in there? Rather than get distracted I head upstairs.

As I appoach the room, I imagine model 6 in her slinky black dress from last fridays episode. I visualize her sitting on my couch. I anticipate the surprise I will feel when I peak in and she's there - I anticipate beiing almost startled. Sure enough, I walk in and there she is, sitting on my couch. I say something like "you're here". She's responds with "Hi J".

OK, you can surmise where this is heading. I sit next to her and we kiss briefly. Her character is very take charge. She stands and starts unbuttoning my shirt. She then focuses on taking off my shoe. She has some trouble so I help. I then get impetuous and gesture to her suggesting we should kiss again. We do. Rather than give me a nice "swirly french kiss", she sticks her tongue as far down my throat as she can. I somehow feel compelled to do the same. We both gag a little and laugh.

I get distracted at this point and wake.

Yeah, I have a little work to do here. But this was one heck of a breakthrough  ;)

I noticed Moonbeams slip - I was wondering who was going to mention it.

Moonbeam - the breakthrough for me was the strong emotional reaction. You know the feeling you have when you walk into what you believe will be an empty room and there's someone there? You're surprised and a bit startled, right. That's the reaction I tried to anticipate (if that makes sense).

Now that I've succeeded once, I should be able to reproduce this pretty easy. I'm not completely done with 6 (you know, I'm going to get info on who the 12th cyclon is - that's what I mean here  :angel:)

I'll try that!  I never added that feeling to it.  Maybe that is the key.

I told my BF about your dream, and suddenly he sees how lucids might be actually be fun.  ::) After all the things I've told him that I do in dreams, it takes summoning Model 6 for him to realize the potential. :shakehead:

Yeah, I tried to explain a co-worker about lucids and he didnt get it or understand. Then I told him you can sex with any girl you wanted and his eyes lit up and wanted to know more!!!!! :angel:
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical May 02, 2008, 10:24:36 AM
I had a few lucids last night - none of which were that interesting. I thought however that I would share the continuing story of summoning model 6.

After 5 hours sleep, some galatamine/choline and an hour awake, I tried to get comfortable on the couch and drift off (the couch is my designated lucid dream spot). After 20 minutes I got a series of vibrations but failed to transition properly. A few minutes later, more head/shoulder vibrations of varying intensity, followed by a feeling of lifting out of my body and being quickly pulled back in. I realized I was dreaming at this point and got up, slightly disoriented.

I had predetermined that if I have a WILD and find myself on the couch that I would head upstairs and once again, imagine model 6 in my music room - but this time naked.

I make my way to the stairwell and notice the bedroom light is on. I head up. My wife is reading in bed. I give her an acknowledging glance but otherwise ignore her and head to my music room. As you might guess, I was sufficiently distracted by her presence that by the time I peeked into the target room ... there was nobody there - crap!

At this point I take the pragmatic approach and figure I'll at least get something from the wife. I'm stymied again though. As I make my way to our bedroom the dream becomes unstable and I wake.

Oh well. I know all the unmarried people are going to be like "serves you right".

Can I ask how you typically transition out of the vibrational or SP state?

Thanks!
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical May 02, 2008, 11:03:05 AM
Yes, I can explain how I WILD but I think it's atypical. Not sure why I'm special.

This is much easier w/ galantamine but I can occasionally do it without.

I simply let my mind drift off. Sometimes I focus my mental energy toward my 3rd eye area or above my head entirely. I transition very quick. There is no prolonged sleep paralysis. I start drifting off and feel very strong vibrations at the back of my head. Usually there is a medium strength wave, a pause and then a strong wave. Negotiating this process correctly means submitting to the feeling and drifting with it rather than focusing to much attention. At the end of the 2nd wave if I did it correctly I usually have a translation feeling (floating, rotating etc ..). When I get that feeling and the vibrations stop I'm dreaming.

I think most people have more traditional WILD experiences (imagery forming around them and they step in).

Oh, BTW last night I visualized walking into a room and touching things right before the vibrations started. That may have helped. There's a post to that effect on DV's presently.

Bummer, Doc.  I wonder how your wife managed to get between you and Model 6.   Seems like you might feel a tiny bit guilty in your subconscious.  You shouldn't, you know--she's not even human!  :lol:

Yep - the psycho analysis on this one is easy. I suppose I feel a tiny bit guilty. I would have invited my wife into the target room where I was expecting Model 6 - but that would have been a disaster too. Even in my wildest imagination I know my wife would balk at a threesome. I'll just have to change the target room to something on the first floor. There's a solution to every problem

: DrTechnical May 06, 2008, 01:45:43 PM
I had an odd night of lucid dreaming. It ended on a good note. I suppose this is worth sharing. There was also one interesting discovery I made quite by accident. My accidental discoveries are often very useful ...

I was asleep by around 9:30 and got up at 3:00 to take my galantamine/choline. I watched TV, sleeping for a few minutes here and there and waking at 3:58 (galantamine always wakes me at the 1 hour mark when blood levels peak).

The next hour was frustrating. I found myself unusually wide awake and could not resume sleep. I was stressing a little because the first hour is optimal LD territory. I kept waiting for my usual series of vibrations and transition into my dream space. I found myself undecided on what to do when I became lucid and focusing too much on my position and physical self.

My mind started to wander. I started thinking back to a scene in high school hanging from a rope and swinging around in the gym. Then BAM - vibrations. I concentrated a little too much and did not transition though.

It dawned on me that perhaps the daydreaming of swinging around and being a little physically disoriented helped me to lose perspective on my physical self and start to fall asleep.

I repeated this a number of times. I would imagine swinging on a rope or being on an amusement park ride, and when I lost a sense of my physical position I would quickly transition into the vibration stage of a WILD. I was so amused by this that I lost sight of making it into the LD itself.

Finally on the 5th go round, I transitioned into a dream. I found myself effectively where I started, on my dream couch. I felt paralyzed and had major trouble moving. I wake. Disappointing.
Then I again relaxed. This time I had a more traditional WILD where dream imagery engulfed me and I found myself stepping into the scene. Again however, I had trouble getting up and aclimating to the dream scene. Within 10 seconds I lost control and woke.

I was getting pretty disappointed at this point. Again, I relaxed and ultimately fell asleep. I found myself looking at a house reminiscent of the one across the street, except it was missing some siding and had cinder blocks instead. I found that odd and realized I was dreaming. I realize I'm in an alley of several large building. I'm still having a little trouble walking so I resort to using my arms as well (sort of walking on all fours). I see two teenagers in a doorway about 150 feet away (don't read into this the wrong way - I'm sure she was 18 or otherwise of legal age  :angel:).

I make my way over there but they duck in before I arrive. I walk in the hallway making a turn or two and find them on a couch. She's now with two guys. The guys see me and decide to leave. She conveniently has no pants on. Sex wasn't my main goal last night but I'm not one to turn down an easy opportunity either. We go at it for a few minutes. It feels very real, though I never really get close to climaxing. I wake.

My lucid last night was interesting, if not a little confusing.  I got up at 3:30 to head to the couch and put on my REM dreamer for a change. As I hadn't used it on months, I was a little uncomfortable and couldn't sleep. Around 4:20 I gave up, took it off and rolled over. At some point I woke up without remembering any dreams, repostioned a little and decided to try to WILD.

I thought I would experiment w/ the approach I used to induce WILDS last time. I hadn't taken any galantamine which puts me at a major WILD disadvantage. But it was worth a shot. I focused my conscious awareness at/into my crown chakra. If you've ever read Rinpoche's "Tibetan Yogas of Dram and Sleep" you know what I mean. I let my mind lose physical awareness of my body. Then within seconds, I started to feel my usual head/neck vibrations. I relax, trying to drift with it rather than control it. After the second wave, I get up a little disoriented pretty convinced I'm dreaming.

I check the VCR time. It's washed out but says 5:10. I go in the kitchen. The microwave says 4:15 and the hand based clock on the wall says 1:30. I go back the the VCR and it now says L01. OK - I'm definately dreaming.

My goal given a WILD was to open a space/time portal in my usual spot, visualize a 1000 ft cliff overlooking a beautiful blue ocean ... and jump off. That's got to be interesting.

This was one of those lucids where my mind kept throwing up roadblocks though. First, the basement door next to my portal is open and the light is on. I try to close it but there are books jammed in the hinge area. I resolve that. Then I notice the light in the room is now on which needs to be turned off. I walk a mine field of books and toys and deal with that. Then as I kneel in front of my portal, my dog jumps on my chest and starts wrestling with me. Now she's 55 lbs and I'm benching about 300 lbs. My instinct is to throw her off. She's way too strong though ???. I try a diffferent approach. I explain to her she can follow me throught the portal when I open it. She relents.

I put my hands on the wall to dematerialize it. I then hear my wife and daughter yelling and getting upset at one another. They're on their way downstairs. Now don't get me wrong, I know to ignore dream characters if need be. But I also know this will be a huge distraction. I hurry through the wall. In my haste I didn't visualize the scene on the other side. This has random consequences. In this case, I try to open my eyes but they're glued shut. I use my usual solution to this problem and try to see through my eyelids. A scene starts to manifest. I'm in a field with tall trees on the perimeter and it's night time. Everything then gets dark again and I slip into some non-lucid dreams.

When I wake, it's much lighter out than the length of the dream sequence would have accounted for. Now I'm asking myself the question, did I really WILD, or did I dream I had a WILD and it was effectively a DILD. I can't say for sure?

Of course 300 lbs free weight  :P

DrTech has been to the gym a few times. Now if my 40 year old body could only put up with 4 hours of hard work in the yard - that would be good. I was going to do some GM last night. I woke at 3:00 am in way too much pain, and decided to put it off for tomorrow.

Lol, Awesome lucid DrTechnical.  It's amazing how much stronger and disoriented things can get in dreams sometimes.  After visiting my dog in an obe once she came up and joined me in bed with her spirit.  Although it felt like it was her physical body next to me in the bed I knew it had to be her spirit because she was way too big and old to be able to jump up on my bed.  But her spirit was able to though.  Maybe that was your dogs spirit that was wrestling you.  Sounds like your dog has the spirit of a lion.  :D 
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical May 11, 2008, 07:29:32 PM
Yes, to your point Iadr - my dog has the heart of a lion. Everytime we have deer in the yard she freaks and charges at full speed. You have to figure a deer weighs 400 - 500 lbs. Fortunately they get a 200 foot head start and they hop the fence before she gets into trouble.

I had a pretty cool lucid last night. It was galantamine time! Usual routine, slept about 5 hours and popped 8 mg G/ 400 mg C. Stayed up till 4:00. Last night though I had major issues falling asleep. I had one wave of vibrations and didn't ride it properly to lucidity. I gave up at 5:37 and figured it would be more comfortable to go back to bed (I always LD on the couch).

The bed was a nice change of pace and more comfortable. Before long I had a powerful series of vibrations. When they were over I looked at my clock at the time was " -- -- -- ". Lucid.

I try to get out of bed but can't get my feet out from under the sheets. I dive down hands first to the floor w/ my feet still trapped. I take my time and unwind the beddings. I get up and head to the stairs. I am almost floating as I head down stairs. I planned to re-try my goal of conjuring a cliff scene at a beach and jumping off. I was tempted to go out to fly. Normally when I float that easy it's a sure sign that flying will be easy too.

Instead, I stick w/ my plan. I head to my favorite wall. There an odd night light device in a socket. I notice it's making a frying sound. Then it starts to smoke. I take it out of the wall and check it out - my mind keeps throwing up distractions. My dog follows me and I become a little concerned she will interveen again. I make it to my wall, kneel and dematerialize it w/ my hands. I imagine a cliff on the other side leading to a beach and ocean. I push throught the wall. I break through. I hear sea gulls! I open my eyes abruptly ... and wake. Crap!

Opening my eyes too abruptly always wakes me. It's my mechanism to escape LD's if they become unpleasant. So note to self ... open eyes slowly when conjuring a scene.

When I use my technique of going through a wall I close my eyes. It's all conceptual really. I think of the wall being a hole in hyperspace. When I approach the wall, my eyes are open. I put my hands on it, close my eyes and envision the target location on the other side. I pass through and assume I will get there. I then open my eyes.

This has worked well for me a number of times and it's a very profound experience when it does. It works the best When I imagine travelling INTO this wall and OUT OF a wall at the target location.

When I keep my eyes open, it a very weird psychadelic-like experience. After all, what does it look like to travel through hyperspace anyway?

What a crazy night of lucids. None were phenomenal, but most had their moments.

First a little background. I thought it would be cool to purchase a magic wand as a conceptual aid in my lucids. The idea is to leave it on the kitchen counter, WILD and expect to find it waiting for me on the counter. I would then use it to aid in whatever task I had at hand. I wound up having one custom made. If anyone wants a recommendation shoot me a PM. It turned out really cool.

My first dream was early in the evening. I found myself on our porch with my magic wand and somehow realized I was dreaming. I walk outside and notice a mirror standing up in the yard about 100 feet from the house. I walk over and notice that the mirror has a liquid look to it - kind of like in the movie Stargate. With wand in hand, I focus my mental energy and push my arm into the mirror. 1/2 way it I gets stuck. I eventually pull it out. I continue walking and my mom (who apparently is visiting) yells something inaudible from the porch. I wake.

My next dreams were all WILDS later in the evening on Galantamine. They get progressively more interesting ...

WILD -1: I transition into my dream and have trouble getting up. I stuggle to get to the kitchen counter. My eyes are obscurred and I'm seeing poorly. I reach and find the wand and make my way toward the front door for flying ... but wake.

WILD -2: Same. Get off the couch, find the wand and head outside. Again, I am not seeing well but flying usually helps that problem for some reason. I flap my arms to get a little altitude and my vision clears. I point the wand in the direction I want to go and it pulls me along. I don't get this 100% perfectly as this is a new technique. I find myself combining my traditional flying techniques w/ the conceptual aid of using the wand.

WILD -3: By now it's light out so when I transition into my dream - as usual it starts right were I left off, the TV room and the sun is rising. Again, I go out to fly. This time I do a little better. I take a running start and extend my arm and wand and visualize the wand pulling me toward some tall trees. This helps. I'm starting to get the feel of how to use the wand for this application. I fly for a few minutes before waking.

WILD - 4: I transition and hear some noise upstairs. I go up to investigate. I find my wife completely naked in bad. I climb in and join her. We go at it for a few minutes. Pleasurable, but as usual I don't climax.

WILD -5: This one is kind of funny. I transition, get off the couch and head to the front door. I notice the clocks all have a reasonable time of 6:15 and 6:20. That makes me second guess whether I'm dreaming. I hear vacuuming from upstairs. I go up to investigate. My wife is in the hall with the vacuum. Her entire lower half is embedded in the floor. OK, definately dreaming - no way my wife is vacuuming at 6:15 am  :P. I peak into my music room to see if anyone else is around. No one. I go back to my wife who is now above the floor in her entirety. She's wearing a slinky gold/blue tight outfit. I pull her pants down around to her ankles and help her onto the floor. She gets my intention and says "Honey, I have a headache and I'm really tired - so I'm not into it right now". I repsond "well, I don't know how to tell you this but you have no emotions or physical sensation, you're a dream character. You're nothing more than a projection of my mind". This goes back and forth a few times and she starts to become more convinced she's not real but I wake before reaping the benefits of winning that arguement.

The last WILD is hilarious ahahaa.  How frustrating though, unlucky.

With the eye opening to quickly stuff, do you ever seem to open your real eyes slightly while continuing to dream.  Im not sure if i did that in a lucid, or if it just seemed to happen.  Is it possible?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical May 16, 2008, 01:04:09 PM
So...did you actually leave a wand out?  Or is that just a dream-wand?

Congrats on the lucids.  Kind of like my last Gm night; a bunch of short ones, but for some reason I couldn't into one and make it last.

Yes, I left the actual wand out on the counter. When I WILD I always start where I left off. Everthing is exactly where I left it. This is how I pull items into my dreams. So the real wand allowed me to pull a dream wand into the scene.

I think your eyelids are immobile when you dream. Certainly your eye balls are not - and that is why lucid dream masks work. I am guessing you partially opened your eyes during a FA or something like that?

It's going to be difficult to avoid turning this dream report into something which is NOT suitable for Penthouse forum. I will try. The dream also gets very weird at the end.

My wife and I were in bed Sunday morning sharing some time together. We got on the subject of fantasies. Now fantasies are just that - very often they are not something you would actually pursue for various reasons. Now I've known for a while that she has a fantasy about being with myself and one or two of her previous guys at once. I'm cool with that, if that's what turns her on. When pressed for some additional detail however, she revealed yesterday that in those fantasies she sometimes thinks about getting it in an "alternative location"  :o. Well that was news to me, and later that day I told her I would need to use that data point in my lucid dreams that night  ;)

It was galantamine night and I was expecting one or more WILDs. I had my first series of vibrations about 90 minutes after taking it. Medium followed by strong vibrations. I sat up and felt like I didn't transition. The clock was reasonable, I wasn't disoriented in any sense. I change positions on the couch (head facing south instead of north) and try again. Next time I have my vibrations I am certain I transitioned. I have trouble sitting up. I'm disoriented. I notice at least two copies of my dog on the floor and I try to avoid her. I get enough momentum to get off the couch and start walking. I have the usual floating feeling. This all subsides within a minute as the dream stabilizes.

I make my way to our bedroom. I get in and notice my wife tossing and sighing. I figure she can't sleep? On closer inspection I realize she's naked under the sheets and she's playing with herself (yes, my mind always makes it so easy). I take my pants off. They get somewhat stuck around my waist. I take my time and succeed. I get under the sheets. We kiss for a while and I make my way down a little lower. I then reach over to the nightstand for some lube. I can't find it after a thorough search. I then realize I have a handful of the stuff which has just appeared from no where. I apply some to the necessary locations  :angel:. My wife is totally into it. I tell her to turn over and get on her stomach.

OK, I'll omit a few of the details here. It was actually very hot and went on for a long time. I remember thinking I was in total control of the dream and there was no reason to wake from it. That worked well.

Here's where it gets weird. I finish and roll over. I'm just relaxing when I look over to my left and there's another woman standing there. I say "who are you?". Then I realize, it's my mom when she was in her early 20's or so. I tell me wife, "honey do you see that woman"? She doesn't. She walks over and walks right into my mom and gets absorbed by her (sort of melds into and disappears). My wife then backs out and comes back to bed. This freaks me out a little and I wake.

Interestingly, I find myself in my original position (head to the north) which leads me to believe the first series of vibrations lead to a FA and that the 2nd series of vibrations occured while I was already dreaming.

Anyhow, that was a hot dream. On the subject of fantasies, I of course shared mine with my wife as well. As data for my future lucid dreams, I gave her a choice of 4 woman from the gym she could be with. She didn't seem thrilled but did give me a "well, if it was going to happen, I would probably say L". Never enough goals to pursue in my lucids. I would have picked L too  ;)

I had a couple of fun lucids last night. They get progressively more interesting as the evening goes on ...

I took some galantamine and choline after 5 hours of sleep at 3:00 am. Stayed up till 4:00 then ultimately fell asleep around 4:40.

My first lucid was my typical galantamine induced WILD. Head vibrations for about 15-20 seconds, only one wave though. It stopped and I was unsure if I transitioned into my dreamspace. I get up and look at the VCR clock which says 4:45 or something otherwise reasonable. I look down and up again and the time is just garbage characters. I'm pretty sure I'm lucid. I proceed to the kitchen. I decide to try to float over the floor as a lucid double check. I float, then position my body face down and ultimately do a forward flip in mid air. However, I lose dream stability and wake.

The second LD was the longest by far. I find myself in a building with large glass windows and doors. The scene is discontinuous, I can't quite place what happened previously. My daughter is w/ me. I ask her "A, is daddy dreaming?". She responds "You're dreaming daddy". That's enough to covince me since she is only 3 and doesn't fully understand the concept yet. I go outside to explore. It's a beautiful day w/ blue skies. I leap in the air and start to fly. After soaring a little I simply close my eyes and enjoy the floating sensation as the wind pulls me along and I'm bathed in sunlight. I start to feel like I'm losing the dream. I open my eyes and descend to the ground. I find myself on a bicycle trail with a female rider going by. I stop her and help her off her bike and onto the ground. She has tight little shorts on and a small red sports bra. It's obvious to me that my subconcious has provided me a "present". We have sex. It's very good and she's up for anything. I never quite finish though (any of you ever have the experience where you wake a little before climaxing and your hips are pumping away when you wake?).

My final lucid was entertaining. I have another WILD. I have one series of vibrations and open my eyes on the couch. My wife comes down and I'm again unclear if I'm actually dreaming. I know one thing, interacting with her right now will only complicate things. I ignore her presence in the kitchen and head outside. I realize I'm very light and sort of floating. So I'm clearly lucid. I decide to float to the top of the big austrian pine in the front yard. It's about 50' tall. Last time when I was at the top of this tree I wanted to jump off but was hesitant. This time I get to the top and decide to jump, just for fun. My wife steps out and I say "Hey honey, check this out". I jump. Now typically when I fall in a lucid I get sort of a "matrix effect" thing going. I reach the ground, slow up and the ground sort of streches down and becomes elastic. I bounce back up all the way back to the top branches of the pine tree. I do this two more times. My wife doesn't seem to care. Then I notice the 20 something year old guy next door. I yell "Hey asshole prick next door - watch this" (we had a little altercation last year, police came but no one got arrested  :angel:)  Again I fall, get absorbed into the elastic ground and bounce back up. He doesn't seem to care either. I wake.

I had a very cool lucid last night, though it didn't involve sex or flying :o

I was in a car with my parents driving along a country road reminiscent of rural Pennsylvania or perhaps upstate New York. The car itself had beige bench seats. My folks were in the front with my daughter on my moms lap and my dad driving. My daughter started to complain she was feeling sick and might need to vomit. My mom offers her an ice pop and that seems to quiet her. I then see my brother B in the front seat as well in the middle between my mom and dad. Now B is 36 years old. I realize he's just a child of 4 or 5? I recognize this peculiarity and realize I'm dreaming. I study the situation. My brother is the perfect picture of what he looked like at that age. I recognize the car as our 1973 chevy Impala. This puts the scene at 1976, give or take.

Rather than take control of the situation in any sense, I decide to keep a passive role. I realize that my parents are not as young looking as would be appropriate for 1976 though they certainly look younger than present. A motorcylce passes us very quickly and I then hear sirens. I wonder if the police are looking for us or the motorcycle. My dad was a cop back then so being pulled over by the police was pretty much a non-issue. He was a liuetenant so they would typically kiss his ass. As it turned out we carried on and the police pulled over the motorcycle.

We continue to a gas station. It's very old fashioned. Something compels me to ask a very juvenille question. I ask ... "Dad, are we almost there". He scold me for being impetouous and tells me to be quiet. He gets out of the car to gas it up. I decide to make a break. The seats are now green bucket style seats. I pull the lever behind the drivers side, fold the front seat forward and leave the car. I look around to insure no one has noticed. I leap in the air to do some flying and lose the dream right at this point. I wake.

Last night I had an absolutely wonderful lucid. If you read my post in message passing you may know that I am working on a message passing idea that is rather specific. I am trying to find other copies of myself at a specific point in my dreamspace. This point is a large rock on a beach in the town where I grew up. There are several layers to the experiment, the first of course is consistently finding myself on that beach ...

I was trying to fall asleep when I started to get rather coherent images forming around me. I was on a bed in a room I was unfamiliar with. This is not how my WILDS typically flow but I do know what to do in this scenario. I tried to get up and "step into" the scene. I made a split second decision to keep my dream eyes closed and to open them when the scene stabilizes and find myself in a specific location. I stuggled to sit up and climbed out of bed creating the physical sense that I was now in the dream. I imagine myself in my bedroom in the house I grew up in. I walk over to the door and open it. I open my eyes.

Sure enough, I'm looking into the hallway of our old house. The dream is still unstable though. I walk down the stairs. My present dog runs up to greet me. I acknowledge her and continue. At the base of the stairs I stop and just focus on dream stabilization. After 30 seconds I have a better sense of control and sensation. It's stable. I head outside. I go 30 feet in front of the house to take in the scene. The house itself looks the same. The garden has been poorly maintained and I think to myself that if this represents what the house looks like now, the new owners are taking lousy care of the place. There are layers of leafy weeds 18" high. The weeds have small red flowers. I head to the street. There's an old fashioned green bicycle I check out. I start heading to the beach. I am having a little trouble walking and decide to apply a typical non-lucid trick I use when I get the "walking through jello" sensation. I get on all fours and use my arms as well as legs to traverse the street. This works better. For some reason there are large clumps of grass all over the street? I think to myself - if someone sees me on all fours like this will they realize I'm dreaming?

I realize it will just be more efficient to fly. The beach is only 5 houses and one cliff away. I leap into the air and powerfully flap my arms. I make good progress. Now in reality, New York city is 20 miles west of our old home. In  my dream however it's different. As I gain altitude I realize Manhattan is about 3 miles to our south. As I get higher I have a fantastic view of the east river and sky line. The details of the buildings are extraordinary. The water is a crystal blue in color. I proceed North to our beach. As I get to the beach line there are more buildings which are out of place (our old town is residential by the way - lots of small houses and trees). I see a number of buildings which remind me of London on my left. To my right are other building I don't recognize. Then I hear the most wonderful sound. Waves crashing against the shore. It's been so long since I was able to appreciate this sound I was once so familiar with. It's quite windy so the waves are kicking up. The sound and sensations are so real. I decide to fly along the coast to try to find a copy of myself. I pick up very good speed as I cruise the shore.

The sensations are so euphoric that I'm tempted to close my eyes and bask in the sensations. I do. I lose myself in the feelings. The scene behind my eye lids is dark. But then, a light starts to form at a distance. It gets brighter and brighter. The scene is something like what people sometimes describe in near death experiences. It finally gets almost blinding in brightness. I then open my eyes for real and wake in a well lit room.

Interesting how you "saw" the light getting brighter to wake up in a well lit room. I wonder if thats your brain becoming more and more alert as it wakes up and therefore could see more of the light ?

I tried 5-HTP for the first time last night. What a fantastic experience. I will probbaly write a post in lucid aids ...

I did my usual G/C routine w/ WBTB. The only difference is I took 150 mg of 5-HTP 6.5 hours before my LD attempts. My first LD was a WILD. I had a prolonged series of vibrations about my head. After some 30-40 seconds they subsided. I was convinced I had transitioned into my dream space. I sanity checked the time on the VCR which was simply blank. I decided to try to open a time/space portal in the wall. I usually do quite well at this. My target location was a beach near wear I grew up. This time however I had no luck decomposing the wall. I gave up and went outside. I leap in the air and start ascending. I keep going up until I break the cloud cover. I pause and then continue. I climb hundreds of feet above the bed of clouds. It's a wonderful sensation and view. As is usually the case, I close my eyes and relax in the blissful sensations. I wake (FA). I look at the end of the couch and my daughter is there. I turn away for a moment and look again. She has transformed into a small pudgy cheeked chinese girl. As try to ask who she is but can't speak for some reason. My next instinct is to throw a pillow at her. I realize I'm in the middle of a FA and decide to ignore her. I go upstairs to find my wife. I find her reading in bed. There's a big lump next to her about the size of a person. The blanket is over the lump. I wonder if her friend L from the gym is hiding under the blanket. Sure enough, I lift the blanket and L is there. Still standing I pull down my pants. L jumps out of bed, gets on her knees and starts to uh ... service me. This goes on for about 30 seconds. My wife continues to read somewhat unconcerned about what's going on. L's technique is quite good. A little too good  - I wake for real this time.

I find myself on a college campus and relaize I'm out of place. I'm now lucid. I decide to enter a dorm to find a cute girl. I enter a room and find one. She's on the phone and asks me to wait. She's discussing some photo shoot she needs to do. I get impetuous and move on. I continue through the dorm and walk through a door which takes me to the living room of my childhood home. Excellent. My target location is the beach. I head north on the street. It's dark out. I have some trouble moving so a get on all fours and use my arms as well. I see a white light in human form heading my way. I say to myself "look, a specter". That is a weird word choice, since I would never use the word specter over ghost. (I looked up specter in the dictionary, it seems completely synonomous w/ ghost, does someone know of a distinction between the word usages here, it's too weird that I would use that word?). The ghost passes by wo/ giving any interest in me. I get to the cliff to the beach. It's about 75' high and a 45 degree incline. That's how I remember it. But there are new features too. The cliff has fist sized rocks blanketting the hill. There is water flowing in many locations creating a very pleasing waterfall effect. A jetty was built to create a lagoon. Many boats are moored in the lagoon. I reach the beach but wake.

I find myself in a city reminiscent of Venice. The streets are very quaint. The canal is a little large for Venice with various sailboats travelling along the water. I realize I'm dreaming. I take in the view. I realize how much I miss living on the water. I get a little emotional and actually cry a little. I regain my composure and carry on. I enter a building. The furniture in the room is very small. There is a miniature crib, a mini bunk bed, a mini door leading to outside. I squeeze throught the door and find myself on the beach in New York I've been trying to reach. However, I'm several miles west of the target location (a large rock my friends and I used to party on when we were teenagers). I jump into the air and begin to fly in that direction. I make reasonable progress. I get within a hundred yards and notice the tide is very low. I decend. I see my target rock and one other. The other is a large boulder. I see a person near that boulder. As I get closer, I realize the person is me. I'm wearing jeans and a blue polo shirt which I haven't worn in quite some time. I have sun glasses on as well. I get excited. This is exactly what I've been working toward, finding myself at this target location and trying to pass info to the version of myself from the relative past. As I make my way to myself, I get over anxious and wake  >:(

This is a very cool sequence.

Emotions not taking you from your Lucid.  Mine don't necessarily take me from them either.  Emotions can be very strong in LD/OBE

Seeing yourself at a younger age.  Very cool 8) 8)

I have found that it seems when I have less control over the environment it means I am in a collective environment. That there are others also who have an agreement about what is so and we all have to change it.  I have left the confines of my singular imagination.  Great job. :)

I had a few decent lucids this morning. I guess they're worth sharing. A little background ... when I went downstairs for my WBTB the sink was full of dishes and I was pissed that my wife didn't follow through on her promise to deal with that.

150 mg 5-HTP at 9:00. Sleeping by 10:00. Up at 3:00 for G/C WBTB. Tried to sleep at 4:00, up till 5:10 or so - couldn't sleep.

I had two seperate waves of vibrations but concentrated too much. I had another wave and just relaxed this time. I transitioned into my dream space. I sanity checked this with the VCR clock which showed me 3:16 am and the kitchen nightlight which was left on but was now off. Definately dreaming. I go to my favorite wall to open a space/time portal. I haven't done this for a while and I'm out of practice. I move the speaker away to make more room and kneel. I put my hands on the wall. I imagine the wall getting soft and wavy under my hands. I imagine my target dreamspace location - a beach I'm trying to get to. I succeed. I start pushing through. I'm now in the wall. It's very dark. I am trying to get through a large hole - trying to get my leg high enough to climb in and get some leverage. I fail and get somewhat trapped. I wake.

I feel myself slipping down the couch head first. I eventually slip all the way to floor. When I sit up I realize I'm a little groggy, a sure sign I'm now dreaming. My wife comes down and heads over to the kitchen sink. I ignore her and head to the living room window. A sight catches my eye. It's snowing. The sky is blue to the east and an ominous black sky is heading from the west. I say to my wife "look honey, it's snowing in June". I walk back into the kitchen. She's doing the dishes and pans. I come up to her from behind and rub my crotch into her behind a little (I know, very slick move). I consider asking her if she wants to go upstairs and get it on w/ her friend L. For some reason I feel very uncomfortable asking this. Don't know why. I shouldn't have second guessed things. I wake up.

I wake and sit-up. All of the teeth on the lower RHS of my mouth feel loose. I move my tongue that way and they pop out. I spit out about 5 teeth. Dreaming! I head to the front of the house. I hear sounds upstairs that suggest my wife is about to shower (shower curtain being drawn). I head up. The lights in the bathroom are off. She's naked. I say to myself ... "cool, a little impromptu shower sex". I head in and caress her a little. She gets on her knees and starts to service me (don't know why my DC's are so compelled to do this lately). I don't resist ;) The lights are now on and I'm watching the scene from different mirrors which is kind of cool. After about 1 min I'm pretty close to climaxing - when I of course lose it. I wake.

LOL - yeah perhaps.

My wife and I have been together for about 10 years. Truth is, we have a pretty decent physical relatinship. We're both cool with a little fantasy and the like. she's had occasional lucids. But I don't think she fully appreciates how real this all can feel. If she did, I'm not convinced she would be so cool with it. Something tells me that she and L might see a little action yet. ;)

I had a curious lucid this morning. A little background. Since most of my lucids start with me in my dream house, I figured I would leverage a new idea to change the dream scene. I have a shed in the back. If lucid in my dream house, I would go out to the shed, close the door, visualize my target dreamspace location and open the door to that locale.

After being up for a while 6 hours into my evenings sleep cycle, I was going into and out of sleep. I had lucids and WILDing on my mind and I was trying to pay attention. WILDS for me are tough wo/ G/C. I started to feel vibrations at my head and neck. Just one wave which carried on for a long time, perhaps 20 seconds. I just relaxed and let it happen. When they finished I was pretty sure I was lucid. I sanity checked the time on the TV clock at it was unreasonably early. I knew I was dreaming. The odd thing here is my overall awareness and reasoning was low. I found myself in my childhood home but that fact never really struck me.

I walked into the kitchen. I realized my mouth was full and I spit out some bright red vomit into the sink. I felt otherwise fine and considered this further proof I was dreaming. I make my way to the living room. There is a very thin and oddly shaped grandfather clock in the middle of the room. My mom comes down the stairs. She's in a G-string. She's thinner in this dream than in real life but she's still not G-string material - for lack of a better way to put it. She explains to me that this used to be her work uniform. Now mom was a hair dresser by trade, so this doesn't make any sense. I head to the kitchen. At this point my dad comes down too. I love my folks, but there's no way I'm dealing with both these crazies right now. I head to the back door and leave the house.

My intent was to get to my target location on the beach. I could have simply walked or flown at this point. For some reason I felt compelled to use the shed/time-portal idea. My shed is in fact in their back yard. I head over. As I'm doing this, my daughter exits the back door. Again, I love my daughter dearly, but I saw this as a complication at the moment. I then realized that it might be nice to take her on a flight. She's 3 and she's just starting to notice dreams - though I'm sure they are confusing to her. I decide I'll take her for a flight, like in her Peter Pan video. At this point the dream becomes unstable and I wake.

I usually only document my lucids here.

It's worthy of note though, that last night I had the most intense non-lucid sex dream. I had taken 400 mg (I think that's the LD dose) of Mucuna Pruriens (sp?). I have never had luck helping my lucid dreaming w/ this substance. It's basically a source of L-Dopa, a precursor to Dopamine in the brain. It's supposed to have an effect on HGH release when sleeping as well. I was taking it for the latter effect since I'm trying to cut down the body fat a little. I figured I would just use it up.

Last night, on my 3rd REM cycle I had an awesome sex dream. Whether the MP played a role, not sure. I don't know if I can go into the details really. Suffice it to say that my wife and I were at on orgy with a lot of hot people. No one seemed to have any inhibitions what so ever. Use your imagination on that one.

I look forward to using up the rest of my MP.

I had totally forgotten about my lucid dream last night until you talked about this dream.   I don't know who else was there but I was with three great women ...blah blah blah.  Thank-you for sparking that memory which was really both hot and very wonderfully lucid.  The sex did bring me back to my body.

To be more precise, each cap is 400 mg 15% L-Dopa. I took 8 caps which is roughly 480 mg L-Dopa. I took it at 10:00, sleeping by 10:30 and woke out of this dream at 3:00. Sincethe half-life is 1.5 hours, less than 20% should have been still active. Maybe it's the return to baseline which had an effect? Don't know.

I do know I have a lot left, it was a big bottle  ;)

So did anyone get the LST challenge yet?

I have had an aweful week and a half as far as lucids are concerned. I did a WBTB last night with this task on my mind. The intention was to find my wife and her gym friend L upstairs in bed and to join. The dream which followed was not lucid, but very odd and amusing:

I'm in bed w/ L. She's naked and I have pants on. I have my head between her legs and I'm servicing her. I do this for a minute or two - she seems into it. I then get up and complain that my back hurts a little. I lie flat on the bed. She gestures that I should finish getting undressed. I have a little trouble getting my pants and underwear off but succeed. I realize I'm not aroused yet which concerns me a little. She climbs on top of me and her naked body feels wonderful against my own. I'm waiting for her to take a little initiative with the aforementioned issue  ;). I start scratching her back a little. She tells me "hurry up, I'm tired and want to get to bed". I pause wondering if she's kidding. She then says "oh, I'm just kidding, isn't that what K would say about now?".


At this point, Ed Asner walks in followed by one other woman I don't recognize. I realize I'm now very aroused and the second woman comes over to me and puts by "member" on a single piece of white bread. At this point a few more people enter the room. I say "Alright, this is ridiculous, I'm dreaming. You are all dream characters and you can leave now." Funny thing is, I didn't know I was dreaming and simply felt compelled to offer that up. I suppose I was about 1/2 lucid at that point.

The unwanted people start to leave, including the woman with the bread. One guy can't find his way out. He heads to the closet pretending to be confused. It's clear he just wants to film us. I tell him precisely where the door is. Now it's just me and L. However, she is now a completely different person. She's very thin and wearing a bandana which suggests to me she might be a cancer patient. I wake at this point.

Alright, tomorrow is G/C time - I can do better than that  >:(

LST challenge accomplished

If you're offended by slightly unnatural sexual circumstances, you can stop reading now.

I head downstairs at 3:00 am, popped a few G/C caps and turned on the TV. I've had a lot of problems falling asleep on this mix lately, I missed the last two times which is bothersome. I might need to add a little Melatonin to the mix if this continues.

By 4:53 I was distracted and pissed off that I was about to miss for the third time straight. I give up and head upstairs. I figure I have a better chance of falling asleep in a more comfortable environment. I hop into bed w/ my wife.

I start to relax (probably because I gave up on the LD thing) and begin to get some good HI. I open my eyes and it's very dark in the room - too dark. I realize I'm dreaming. I get out of bed. As is sometimes the case for transitions staight into a dream, I am having trouble moving about. I can barely get my second leg out of bed. I try to relax and go with the flow of the situation rather than fight it. I make sure to touch a lot of objects to get better incorporated into the dream.

I make my way to my music room hoping to find L sitting on the couch - no such luck. I head downstairs. I figure since I'm so light, a little flying is in order. I slowly make my way to the door, open it, head out and jump in the air. I do a sumbersault and fall on my head. This is going poorly.

The outdoor scene is actually completely different than reality. I don't recognize the scene. Then I hear two female voices next door. It sounds like they're partying in the back yard of the house next door. OK - back to the LST task. I head back there. They are both in swin suits. There's a girl in a lounge chair. She has dark hair and skin. She looks to be native american. She has a white bikini suit with some black trim. Her friend is at a table a few feet away, also sitting. Her friend is fair skined with light brown hair. They are both very cute and I think a little drunk.

I say, "hey girls, are you two up for a little threesome?". They give an acknowledging glance. I walk over to the girl on the lounge chair and help her out of her bikini bottom. I then proceed to uh ... warm her up orally. Her friend who was sitting gets up, takes off her bottom and still facing toward me squats over her friends face. Needless to say, before long all I'm thinking about is intercourse. I get on top of her and we go at it that way. We're both getting very worked up when I realize her friend is no longer around? We're both getting very loud, which is when I made my grand mistake - I started to worry that I would be making noise in bed next to my sleeping wife. I wake. Oh well, it was fun anyway.  ;)

Since I have the torch (OK, still figuring out how to paste it into my signature) I guess my thread becomes LST central.

I'm open to ideas. Actually, I think a fun idea would be to find the person you lost your virginity to and get it on with them. If you're a virgin, find the first person you made out with and go all the way.

This is pretty challenging since you need to conjure a person AND have sex.

Or maybe sex in public, that would feel liberating? Too many options.

The other thing that's cool about sex in public is you have to completely dismiss the wakeful instinct to be alone with that person. That could turn out to be harder than you think.

If it's sex in public, then I don't think sex in front of one other person counts. I'm thinking a typical example might be in a department store, a supermarket aisle, that type of thing.

Woohooo, you did it!
Congratulations! Great description and a very nice setting.

I like the challenge of conjuring a special person to have sex with, but I'm not really into 'first one' since that involves my not-nice ex, who's been around in my dreams already too often  >:(
Sex in public would be cool, especially if you describe the looks of those people as well :D

Here's the link for the torch: hey, damn, now I lost the torch....

Wooo, LST central has moved :D congrats DrTechnical.

So the next one is just to do it somewhere public with a bunch of spectators present? That'll be fun!
Could be a little difficult too, not so much for my own inhibitions, but the reactions of others. I remember one dream where I tried to pick up a girl in front of my Dad... He didn't react kindly.
I just need to have a good lucid where I can think straight!
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical July 07, 2008, 12:48:47 PM
Thanks Sara, damn those keywords.

Hiros - Yes, sex in public seems to have momentum. Can we officially agree or are there other thoughts. I agree that this could be more tricky than it first seems. I can easily see myself on the floor of some shopping mall, half way into the task - when some old lady comes up, blowing a whistle, yelling for the police and hitting me with her handbag. "Leave that poor woman alone!".

Let's not make the tasks too challenging, just a good idea for a nice dream will do, so we all have a chance on completing the task. Looking at the other people's faces would be hard enough if you're concentrating on something else in the meanwhile ;)

Good luck everybody, I'm off to bed! :P
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical July 10, 2008, 08:23:02 AM
I've had the worst time with falling back to sleep on G/C lately. I did change the routine a little last night. I'm starting to wonder if the 5-HTP at bedtime is hindering my ability to fall back to sleep 6 hours later. This 5-HTP strategy lines up pretty well with when I started having challenges, though not exactly. I'm also on a bit of a diet, just trying to expose a little more definition. That can't be helping. That does correlate exactly with this problem.

So last night, I took 1500 mg 5-HTP at 9:20 pm and went to bed. I slept mediocre and got up at 3:00. I took my usual dose of 8 mg/400 mg G/C and about .3 mg or so of melatonin. Oh, one fudsicle as well, since the let down from the sugar makes me sleepy in about 1/2 hour. By the time 3:50 rolled around I am wanted to go to sleep again, I was pretty relaxed and a little sleepy. I got comfortable, reviewed my goals, etc ...   My mind was relaxed and clear and I just tried to drift off. Nothing. By 5:00 I got up and did the only other thing e all know makes us sleepy  :angel: OK, BTB.

By 5:41 I had totally given up and I just wanted to fall asleep. At some point around 6:00 I started to feel my usual shoulder/head vibrations. First one wave, then another and finally a 3rd. After the third I had a floating feeling which is the clue that I transitioned.

I get off the couch and head to the VCR clock. It says 7:04 but it's way to dark for that to be correct. I go to the kitchen and retrieve my magic wand, which I had left on the counter top - sort of a conceptual aid. It's right where I left it. I put it in my pants pocket for later. I realize I'm dragging a blanket around at my feel. I try to shake it ff several times but fail. I finally reach down and decouple it from my foot. I head out via the back door which leads to the porch, then out the porch door. I stop for a moment to appreciate to wonderful detail of the scene my mind is fabricating. Then my next challenge. My sweat pants are so damn tight it's hard to walk. I stop and take those off, and put the wand in my mouth. I start walking more freely, actually walking around in he back yard in my underwear isn't bad.

I get to the shed. My intention was to walk in, walk out and fabricate a scene I walk into upon leaving the shed. I notice the leaves are off the bushes and tress implying a winter scene, but the temperature is comfortable. Someone has cleared out all the buckthorn weed trees that are now 10' tall from what used to be our garden, how nice of them. I enter the shed somewhat expecting something weird to be in there. A giant groundhog perhaps? But it looks exactly as I would expect, just mowers and tools. I enter and close the door. I wave the wand and visualize my target location. I close my eyes and open the door  - I wake.

I don't know how many times I have to trip over the same mistake before I learn, never close my eyes for an extended time and open them - that almost always wakes me up.

Anyway, next time I use G/C, I'm avoiding the 5-HTP and going straight back to bed instead of doing the WBTB thing. We'll see how that goes.

5-HTP didn't do much for me that I could tell either. 
Putting the G/C combo into orange juice (broke the capsules into it) and drinking it helped me get back to sleep and not be so tired in the morning.  Don't know why it made a difference but it certainly did.

: DrTechnical July 13, 2008, 01:46:01 PM
I had a short lucid last night. I'll document it here not because it was very interesting, but rather because it came as part of a little experiment I've been meaning to get around to.

I have some experience with a special compound we'll simply refer to as S-A. If you're actually reading my journal AND you're interested I can share the detail over PM. Some of you can probable guess anyway. Since this substance does not work on the cholingeric system, I am quite sure there is no possibility of cross tolerance with G/C.

This compound creates a short inebriation which seems to break down the barriers between the conscious and sub-conscious minds like nothing else I've experienced. I did play around with this a while back using small doses and auto-suggestion to see if that had an effect on lucidity. No great luck.

Rather than use a small dose, I used a large dose this time, roughly 4.5 hours after initially falling asleep. I fell back to sleep maybe 45 minutes later. I did nothing more than affirm my intention to become lucid and review a few possible scenarios and goals. The dream ...

I was at work talking with my wife and my deceased uncle T. My wife is boasting about how much she has on her plate and how much she is accomplishing. I say to her, perhaps she can put off one or two of those tasks and find a little time for "scratching" (a reference to foreplay/sex). She rolls her eyes and doesn't seem to agree. I get up with a mad look on my face and storm away, looking for some attention. She does get up and follow. For some reason I take the rather childish position of hard to get and start running. She chases after me and nearly catches me. I'm now about 1/2 lucid and decide that I should fly away because she doesn't know that trick. I jump in the air and flap my arms. I wonder if I can make it through the roof into the floor above. I succeed. I'm now lucid and find myself on top of some furniture, or perhaps a big commercial refrigerator. A number of people are looking on.

I realize I have avoided my wife, but I have the new problem of all these people starring at me. I want to reach the floor but for some reason am hesitant to fly down. I've leaped from higher distances and know how to negotiate those types of falls, but a 6' fall while all these people are staring at me makes me feel uncomfortable. I start to get concerned that if I jump, I will fall on my head and it might hurt? This is a weird sequence of thought process as I'm usually pretty fearless in my lucids. As always, excessive fear of anything works against me and I wake.

Anyway, tonight is G/C time. I am certain I'll have my usual strong response with that combo, independent of last nights experience.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical July 14, 2008, 01:26:52 PM
My intention last night was two fold. First, try to get to sleep more easily on G/C. Two, not be so ambituous in terms of goals and sort of go with the flow of the dream to improve LD duration. If lucid in my house (i.e. - typical WILD) I would go upstairs to find model 6 for the LST task if I heard any thing going on upstairs. Else, I would open my door and try to step onto the porch of my childhood home and get to my target beach location.

Final point of set-up, I was thinking about Moonbeams challenge with sleeping on G/C as well and wondering if she was doing any better.

I took nothing upon going to sleep. I woke about 5 hours later and took G/C and 0.5 mg of melatonin + ate one small cup of ice cream (hoping for a sugar let down and improved sleep 1 hour later).

I got comfortable on the couch at 3:50 and reviewed my goals and tried to relax. My mind was a little busy but I did manage to transition around 4:40 or so. As usual, my first lucid was a WILD preceded by two waves of head vibrations. When I got up I had a floating sensation and knew I was dreaming. I make my way to the kitchen and grab my magic wand. I don't hear anything unusual upstairs and forgoe the model 6 thing. I skip and float in the air doing a few mid air spins just for fun. I like the feeling of being suspended in mid-air. I make my way to the door and visualize the porch of my target house. I open the door but instead walk into my own front yard. My visualization excercise creates a sort of fogged out scene, and my eyes take 5-10 seconds to get clear again.

So I decided to just go with the flow, which seemed to warrent flying because I was so light anyway. I leap in the air and get some good altitude, hovering over the trees, soaring down and back up a few times. It strikes me the flying into space might be cool. On the fly, I think about how that might be done? I figure I'll soar down and push off the ground as hard as I can in order to get maximum momentum. I do this and actually approach face first. I get a good push with my arms and start soaring up again but wake (my dog repositioned herself on the adjacent odiment and disturbed my sleep). Crap!

I had a follow-up dream which was interesting. I was in my living room talking to someone who I believed was Moonbeam but as a teenager. I have only seen one picture of her I vaguely remember. It was a present day photo swimming with two dogs (I think it was in her DV profile). It hits me that MB being in my living room clearly means I'm dreaming. My minds projection of MB as a teenager is medium build with long brown hair. More on the full coarse side (as opposed to thin/silky). Her hair is about 9-12 inches past her shoulders pulled back in two or more places with a hair tie.

She then says to me the oddest thing. "Time hasn't been flowing normally for you since 2006". I somewhat ignore that comment. She then says she has to find Tom. I suggest we go outside because he's certainly not here (maybe MB having read too many of my dream journal entries thought I was going to make a move on her  :o). We wlak along my front walkway and get to a large bush I recently trimmed. She points it out and says "what happened here". I tell her that it's fine, I just recently trimmed it. I then take a closer look and it's about 3/4 bare and dying. This becomes a rare instance where I lose lucidity. I get so caught up in my failed bush trimming experiment that I lose sight of the fact I'm dreaming.

I believe I next experience a scene change which has me overlooking the white house as a large alien ship lands. Cartooninsh looking aliens run out as soon as the ship stops. It's an invasion of some kind. Another scene change. I'm in a supermarket gathered with a large group of people getting ready to fend off the alien attack. I reach down to a holster and find they've supplied me with a 7 shot (?) revolver. I get pissed that I don't at least have a semi-automatic. I wonder what kind of damage 7 shots can do to these aliens? I wake.

The time flow observations is confusing to me at first, but it dawns on me what this means by mid morning.

Moonbeam says:  I don't have any trouble sleeping, I just am not getting lucid.  I'm going to wait one more week for somebody else to test out that bottle (been open for a year), then if it doesn't work, open a new bottle.  If it does work, I'm bummed, cuz that means it quit working for me.

How long are you waiting between trials?

Dally I've been waiting at least a week!  I don't know what's going on.  I think I'll know soon, when somebody else tests that bottle.

I don't think that it would be unheard of that you might need to stop for a couple of weeks or a month. Everyone's bodies are different (viva la difference) but I sometimes wait that long.

I used 3 mg Melatonin to get to sleep earlier and did WBTB 5 hours into the evening. Took 200 ug Huperzine-A and applied a 7 mg Nicotine patch. I had two lucids and several non-lucids, one non-lucid I'll share as well. I was going to focus mostly on the LST challenge and conjure Model 6. I was a little anxious and had trouble getting back to sleep, then had a short non-lucid.

Non-Lucid:

I'm in front of my computer and pull up the MM web-site lead page, with the tree graphic and Lucid of the month. There are two new features added. On the L and R side of the tree graphic are the words KING  and QUEEN in a script font. These are both hyperlinks. I figure Queen is probably Moonbeam since she is so active on the board. I figure I'll see who the king is. I hit the link and up pops a picture of a mans face, attached to a deformed baby's body. The whole gross entity is in a clear slimy goo. I wake.  I'm actually glad I got to sleep a little, since that's means I'll start my lucid window but this first H/N dream freaks me out a little.

Lucids:

I'm trying to fall back to sleep when I feel a subtle shift. I know I have transitioned even though I didn't feel any major vibrations or anything. I get up and open my eyes but I can't see. This happens from time to time and I figure it will pass. Blinded, I make my way to my upstairs music room to find model 6. I pass through the kitchen and Dining rooms, up the stairs, around the bend and into the target room. I still can't see. I lean against the wall believing that a nice soft pair of cylon hands will make their way up my body. I wait ... I wait some more. Nothing. I give up and figure I'll go out to fly. I feel my way down the stairs and head outside. For some reason, jumping in the air and flying always resolves any vision issues I have (expectations perhaps). This works again. I'm in the air and I can now see just fine. As always, my flying experience is a combination of soaring up and down, hovering in the air over trees or houses, etc. I then try a few differnet things. A sumbersualt or two. The I put out my arms and spin along my torso, which would have the effect of my arms looking like an airplane prop. That was really cool. After a nice 3-5 minutes of flying the dream looses stability and I wake.

Much later (maybe 3.5 hours after my initial WBTB) I had a more typical WILD. I started to feel my head vibrations. Jusy one wave but it lasted a long time. Maybe 20-25 seconds? The intensity was modest, less so then when I take G/C. When it stops I open my eyes. I immediately notice a picture on the wall of me from High school that used to hang in my parents house. I know I'm dreaming. I head upstairs to find Model 6. I make my way up the stairs and peak into the master bedroom. I see two bodies in bed. Oh - Model 6 and my wife. Well that works for me. On further inspection, I realize my wife and daughter are sleeping together. The bed frame is gone and only the box spring and mattress are there. There is a mess of clothes and papers scattered all over the place. I make my way to the music room. I peak in but Model 6 is no where to be found (maybe my daughters presence weirded me out a little). I turn around to see my wife getting up. She only has on a sports bra and is naked from the waist down. I pass up the opportunity though given the company. I head outside. Then a very nice thing happened that I tried in my last lucid, but failed. This time it happened wothout me consciously willing it. I open my door to step out and I step out of my parents old home in New York. This is great since my target beach is a 10 minute walk away. I head into the street and start walking. The dream is nice and stable and I'm relaxed. I chose to walk to not complicate things. The sun is out and it's a beautiful summer day. When I get to the cliff overlooking the Long Island Sound the tide is low, maybe 50 yards further out from the expected low tide. Conneticut is more like 1 mile away as opposed to the actual 7 or 8. I can see people on our beach as well as the conneticut shoreline. The jetties look different then I remember them. A little longer. It's quite windy and the water is full of white caps. I make my way down the cliff which is about a 45 degree slope. I get to the beach and make my way east to my rock to find "myself". This is all going well until I relaize that I didn't lock in a message should I meet a version of myself from the past. Normally, I pick a news event to share but I didn't go throught this mental excercise before my lucid attempts. I tell myself I'll just wing it and hopefully meet myself rooted to the future instead. My over thinking the situation makes the dream unstable. It fades and I wake.

: DrTechnical July 21, 2008, 06:55:09 AM
The LST torch is mine ... maybe. Sexual content follows, though I try to keep it "cleanish".

I guess this one is open to interpretation. My plan was to WILD, find myself where I started on the den couch and to go up and find Model 6. I figured I would try a different strategy though. I planned to head upstairs and yell up "OK, which one of you cylon cuties is upstairs waiting for me?". If you watch BSG, there are a few, not to mention the unresolved issue of model 12. A model 3 for instance would have been fine  ;). That's it - make the models jealous of one another. (NOTE - this is all just a little fantasy and I do have a life, really).

As always, I had a hell of a time getting back to sleep. When I did though I had two very powerful waves of head vibrations. I got up convinced I was dreaming. I head to the stairs and find my wife up early working in her office. I ignore her and head upstairs. I feel self concious enough not to yell up to whoever was waiting. I turn the bend and enter my music room and ... no one.

By now, my wife has come upstairs and she's in bed. OK, we know where this is going. She's on her stomach reading. I pull down her pants, then take off my pants and underwear. I stuggle to get these off. I help her out of her panties and climb in bed. Being that this is a dream, I figure I'll go for a little something I don't get IRL. I lube her up a little and enter her rear. She lets out a dainty little "uh". We go at it like that for a minute or two.

I realize that for a sex dream, it's VERY stable, which is good. I start to think this position is akward. While still inside her, I roll us over onto our right hand sides. I then realize it's no longer my wife, it's Sharon - one of the other cylon models. Here's a pic of Model 6 and Sharon if you're not familiar with the BSG:

http://entertainment.webshots.com/photo/2859036420100313232IQZgvX

Sharon is the asian girl. I just go with the flow and try to not get over excited to maintain dream stability. Within a minute or two I'm close to climaxing but get a little concerned what that's going to feel like in this hyper sensitive mental and physical state. I lose the moment. I decide to change positions again and we did it missionary for a while. By now, we've been at it for at least 5 minutes, maybe closer to 10. I figure I should finish, but I'm not that close. I pull out and just try to get myself off. Then who walks in ... Model 6. I swear I'm not making this up!

Maybe I feel a little weird jerking off on Sharon, so I instead go back inside her. I wonder to myself, what is 6 going to do?

Well the answer as it turns out, is nothing. I wake.

So this one is open to interpretation. I planned to find 6 and didn't get her. I did get Sharon, who is arguably less a celebrity - though she does have a new show on A&E. Your call guys.

That's a good question MB, what happened to your sex dreams?

I find WILDS the best because I always start from a known location, my couch. I can pre-plan to a certain degree.

BTW, I did a google search on Grace Park who plans Sharon on BSG. The producers of BSG have her a little uglied up. There are some seriously hot pictures of her out there. If I had seen these previously, I might have picked her straight off.

She was the one I chose straight off. I think she's way hotter than 6, even in her BSG makeup. Of course, I have a thing for asians anyway.

I don't know if it was even part of the challenge to call who it was going to be. Just that it had to be a celebrity. I guess it kinda turned into that with everyone saying who they were going to go after.

You know, I did leave one small detail out of last nights dream. It was how it actually ended. It's weird how I am projecting unpredictability onto Model 6. The first time we met, she rams her tongue down my throat. The second time (last night), she did something else quite unpredictable. She comes up behind me, and does something I'm not expecting at all  :boggle:  I might be done with 6. I can't keep her in check.

OK - so I'm very open to ideas. I didn't give it much thought yet. One thing which jumped to mind was to find a DC to make a home made sex film with. That's kind of interesting, though it would be tough (find DC, find camera, set it up, have sex ....). I don't know. Maybe too complex?

Other ideas?

I like that one almost as much as find a celebrity. I'd love to get with Holly again. :love:

Of course, it would be nice if I could even get lucid to try for it. :-\

People with no past could have an alternate challenge, like find the hottest person from your high school.

Although, are there really any of us that are actively trying for the LSC who are that young?

So I am seeing:

1) Make a home made porno - maybe
2) Find a person from your past - maybe not?

I had a rather obvious idea. How about sex on a beach? I had this once IRL and it was nice. Hint, bring a very large blanket.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: unseen wombat July 22, 2008, 01:22:55 PM
Now after I suggested that I don't know if I like it.  There's a reason they're in the past.
I only have nice memories of *most* girls in my past. I just choose not to think about the others.

Isn't there anyone you have good memories about?

I would say "Sex on a beach". I think the celebrity thing was difficult. If we choose another difficult task people will start losing interest.

Besides, if you haven't done it on a beach yet you should!

I had a pleasant lucid this morning. I had used Huperzine A and Nicotine per my description in the Lucid Aids thread earlier today.

After some sleeplessness and a number of very short non-lucid fragments, I felt myself transitioning into sleep and began to feel my usual head vibrations. The vibrations were very prolonged and of medium intensity. Afte maybe 20 seconds they ended and I knew I was dreaming. I got up from the couch and headed toward the front door. I was trying to envision leaving a different house all together, as I have had some success with dream scene change with that method, but it didn't work this time. I step into my dream front yard. I jog a few feet, turn and leap backwards in the air, I start to gain altitude. I watch as I rise above my house and toward the large trees in my yard. It dawns on me that in my lucid dream flights in my front yard, it's usually fall. The leaves are turning and there are many yellows and reds which don't belong in a summer scene. As I flap my arms, I get very powerful thrusts and rise above the trees. I envision almost a thrusting effect coming from my palms as my arms make their way to my side. I think to myself that my long term task of exploring space would be nice. I continue and try to fly even higher. For some reason, I have trouble flying in a direction without a perspective on objects I'm trying to approach. I stuggle with this some and wake.

It turns out to be a FA though. I see the toaster oven has been moved to the den and a bagel is toasting. I go to the kitchen. All the lights are on and a small TV is sitting on the oven. It's on but only static is playing. I head outside. Before I leave, I hear more static coming from upstairs? I go out and again run and leap forward into the air, visualy pulling myself toward a large tree across the street. I get there and hover besides it. I make my way to a small branch and wonder if it would support me. IRL, this branch would never support my bodyweight but in my dream it does. I hang from it for a while and simply enjoy the view. I again wake.

Another FA. When I sit up and look at the time it's 4:38. I know it's at least 5:02 because that's when I last got up to pee. I feel very sluggish but force my way toward the front door. I open it and head out. I start to lose my visuals, and eventually get somewhat blinded. I try to jump in the air which for some reason normally resolves any vision problems ...  but not this time. I force my eyes open very quickly and wake for real on the couch with my eyes wide open.

Good job on catching the FA's.  Any idea how that happened?

I feel very sluggish but force my way toward the front door.

What was your sense of why you were so sluggish?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: unseen wombat July 24, 2008, 02:40:54 PM
That was great that you realized each time it was a false awakening. I hate when I do that and then think it's reality.

I also often have vision problems. Especially when WILDing. Usually just waiting it out with my eyes closed resolves it, but if I try to force my eyes open, I end up opening my real eyes. I hate that too.

I'll have to look into that lucid aids thread. I've been failing alot with my Galantamine lately. I thought maybe it was just the season or temperature or something. It's probably time to try something new.

How often are you /have you been taking Gm? And for how long?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: unseen wombat July 24, 2008, 03:41:36 PM
I started using Galantamine in about January or February, I think. Before we left for vacation on July 3rd, I was taking 8mg on Saturday and Sunday mornings, along with 250mg of Choline. Now I've started only taking it one day or the other, but it's still not working.

It may be that I'm not taking enough Choline. When I used to use Galantamind, it had choline already in it, and B5 too, and I usually took one extra 250mg Choline. This weekend I'll try 500mg. I really don't want to increase the dose of Galantamine, because it's more expensive, and because I feel 8mg is already a lot.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: dallyup52 July 24, 2008, 03:46:16 PM
A one or two month break would probably help at this point also.

Increasing to 12-16mg might work but it is a spiral.

I found the the added choline was helpful.  You might add ginseng if you don't want to take a break and cut back to once every two weeks.

UnseenWombat - well everyone is different. I use G once or twice a week. Most people can't get away w/ more than that on a regular basis. I wouldn't use it two days in a row. The half life is too long to get away with that and desensitization will surely ensue. Read Yuschaks book. He explains how Piracetam can be used right after a G/LD attempt to minimize tolerance.

Dollyup - the sluggish thing seems to occur in WILDS and I guess is a consequence of the brain being a little confused in the sleep paralysis state. Even for a FA like I had, did I really wake for a brief moment and re-WILD? Hard to say. I think the transition from sleep directly into dream occasionally has this slee[ paralysis phenomenon creep into my dream body.

Yeah, I didn't think that using it 2 days in a row would hurt because I took a whole 5 days off then afterwards. I guess that was wrong though.

Friday night I'm gonna try it with 2 cholines, or maybe Alpha GPC if I can get to the vitamin shop tomorrow. That LST will be mine. :D

What do you think about Hup as compared to Gm?  I thought it made for a very clear, vivid dream with less bizarreness than Gm, but without the aphrodisiac effects.

Speaking of which, I hope I can get the torch this weekend.

I get all the aphrodisiac effect I need from my high testosterone levels (for a middle age guy anyway).

Good luck w/ the torch task. My next G morning is Sunday or Monday - you've been warned  ;)

I had the most bizarre non-lucid dream last night. I guess I would call it a nightmare. very freaky ...

I am paying for a movie ticket. I've gotton seperated from some other family members I am with including my mom and dad. I have a bag of potato chips in my hand and offer the cashier one large ruffled potato chip as payment for the movie ticket. He seems disatisfied with this and gestures for me to hold the bag closer to him. I do and he reaches in and takes two more. He seems satisfied and I get my ticket. I enter and he yells something over to me. I didn't quite hear him and ask him to repeat. He says that my PortaPocket is on crooked (you can google on this, I'll get you a deal if you want to order one before they "take over the world", I know the owner  ;) ).  I reach down to my ankle and straighten it out. I wait on the side to rendeavous w/ my folks. Scene change ...

I'm in bed with my mother in law. Not in a sexual way, we are both clothed and simply trying to sleep. The room is round, indicating that this part of the house might be a turret? I start to hear voices. They get louder and louder. They are coming from my left. I reach out to my left and there's a semi transparent wall which has formed right next to the left side of the bed. A hand comes out and hands me a small card of some kind. I get up and decide to enter this wall, thinking it's a portal of some kind. I pass through it. I'm now in another location which I believe to be somehwere in New York. I can still see through the transparent wall into the room I was previously in, some 900 miles away. I decide to again pass through and go back into the bed. The wall disappears for good. I ask my mother in law what the hell that was all about. She explains that people sometimes hear voices or see apparitions in this room. This freaks me out and I can't understand why she would stay. I get up to find somewhere else to sleep. Scene change ...

I'm at work and our director is again changing some product requirements and deadlines. He know this will piss me off and that I'll try to explain why this is not implementable or an otherwise bad idea. So rather than talk to me himself, he asks Mark to. Mark was with the company years ago. He's a very personable guy. Mark comes over and explains the situation. I tell Mark that this kind of bad judgement is exactly how we got into trouble in the first place. I tell him that he can go back to J and tell him to go screw himself, I'm quiting. I storm out, reflecting on the ramifications of what I just did (i.e. - now how do the bills get paid?).

I had the shortest plain old DILD I've had in a while. No WBTB, no supplements. It shows how helpless I am in my dreamspace without at least WBTB ...


My wife, daughter and I are in a hotel. We peer out to view a huge rainbow which has formed over a valley. I ask my daughter if she sees it and whether she notices the "interference patterns". These are little zig-zag segments of white light along some of the higher frequency bands like violet. She acknowledges she sees them. I then notice and enormous Helium balloon coming our way. There are at least 20 people riding in the "basket". Half are in blue jump suites and half in yellow. I realize we're somewhere in South America some 20 years from now. It's some kind of post terror and world war aftermath situation. I look out another window on the opposite side of the room since I hear rumblings. This window faces a street, and I see a huge transport (much like the Jawa transport from Star Wars) make it's way down the road. The leader of the blue/yellow jumpsuit cult is riding on top of the vehicle. He is in a brown robe and is holding onto a tall wood walking stick. He has white hair and a white beard.

I run outside and get in a bus and give chase. I ask my wife if she sees their leader? The leader notices me and makes a hand signal. This causes another bus to drive into the street perpendicular to our direction and stop. This is meant to cut us off but we plow right through it and the stopped bus gets hurled 100's of feet. I realize I'm dreaming. We continue down this road chasing the "Jawa transport".

There's a scene change and I lose lucidity. I'm in a movie theatre and I'm simply watching the happenings I just described. I get up to stretch because my back hurts. When I return to the theatre people are getting up even though there is 30 minutes left to the movie. We are told we need to practice the final scene since the last group got very wet? We all head outside and it's raining. My wife and I find a dry spot on the pavement as we all get into a circle on the ground. Once in a circle we're asked to stand and put our hand on the shoulder of the person to our right. I do. We are then asked to squeeze firmly. At this point my alarm goes off for my 3:15 WBTB session.

Yes, that WAS a lame lucid. spontaneous DILDS are actually very rare for me.

Edit w/ post WBTB DILD:

I am in my fron yard when a guy from next door comes into  my yard and starts pounding one of my yard waste trash cans with a sledge hammer. He's doing very little damage. Eventualy the lid pops off one of them. He returns to his own yard. I look at the can and there's no real damage, but the can is empty. I filled 7 cans with pine tree pieces yesterday (IRL) and that shouldn't get picked up till Friday. I'm lucid. I decide to make my way down the driveway and find the guy who was pounding my can. It's not my real neighbor, but someone else. I feel like teaching him a lesson. When I get to the head of the driveway I briefly consider turning left and heading to the lake, to try to turn it into a full fledged beach and pull off the LST task. I decide to wait till tomorrow during my G/C try. I turn right and head to my neighbors house. I don't see any adults. Just a few kids playing catch. I feel the dream becoming unstable. I look for something to touch but I'm in the street. I kneel down and touch the pavement. This helps. I stand again and see a factory two blocks away. This doesn't actually exist in my town so I figure I should check it out. Again, the dream becomes more and more unstable as I slowly fall to the ground. The scene darkens and slowly pulls away from my field of vision. I wake.

Interestingly, putting off the task is what got me in trouble I think. To Dallyup's question - why the instability?

As soon as I started second guessing whether I should pursue the LST challenge and concluded that now is not the right time ... I thinkk I broke my confidence. This LD stuff is all a mental game. Break your confidence for even a moment, and it impacts you immediately or perhaps even down the road a minute or two.

I have wrestled with this a lot and not come up with an answer that completely satisfies me.  I have broken my mental game before and the experience remained strong and other times like you, everything went south.  It may be an energetic game more than a mental game.  At least for me that seems true. I have been in one of these experiences and nothing seemed to get me out of it. And other times I am out in a flash at any sign of trying to change anything.

IDK what it is lately, either we are all convincing ourselves it's impossible to sleep on G, or the summer is screwing up sleep cycles, or some combination?
I got up at 3:00 having slept 4 hours or so. Took my G/C and about .4 mg Melatonin. I had a bit of a headache from a too few bourbon yesterday afternoon but decided to LD anyway since my next practical chance is Thursday. Up till well after 5:00 am. Two decent lucids worth sharing, a few clunkers and lot's of non-lucids, all within 45 min or so ...

I'm driving on a highway in my jeep grand cherokee. It all feels a little surreal and I realize I'm dreaming. The highway is more a north eastern scene, it reminds me of pennsylvania. The terrain is a little more rugged and the highway very winding. To insure the dream is stable I grip the wheel a little tighter, change direction in and out of the lane some and insure I have control of the scene. I figure that since I can't hurt myself, I'll have a little fun with the car. I speed up another 25 mph or so and swirve in and out of the lane some more violently, I almost tip over. Then I see a good oportunity to go offroad. I head to the HW edge and abruptly turn off and into a mound of dirt. Rathan than get projected up and get airborn which is what I expected, I hug the mound very tightly and enter a rugged piece of land. I just have fun going way to fast, swirving L and R, going over large bumps and getting slightly airborn - all with complete immunity to injury.

I see a development of houses. They all have very nice lawns. I figure I'll do something very juvenile and do some donughts on their lawns. I make my way toward the development. I approach two houses and I'm heading into their backyards. There are no fences and I enter the propoerty easily and drive through the space between the houses. I turn quickly on one of the front lawns and roll over several times. It's actually kind of fun, knowing full well I can't get hurt. After a few rolls it get very bright and I wake.

I am trying to get back to bed and start to feel head vibrations coming on. I relax and let the feeling take over. Behind closed eyes I see a horizontal line of stars shimmering and forming a slight sinewave pattern, then disappear. I'm sure I'm dreamnig. I get up from the dream couch wondering if my back will still be in a funk even in my dream. The answer is yes, which makes me question things a little. Then I notice the time is 5:07. That's too early so I'm definately dreaming. I head to the front door and leave the house. I planned to go to the lake down the road, through the trees and envision the woods and beach on the LI sound where I grew up. I planned to go through the woods and change the scene. Once on a beach, I would try to message pass to myself, or pursue the LST challenge if presented with an easy opportunity. I am having some trouble walking and decide to crawl? It's pretty light out and  feel like I don't want my dream neighbors seeing me. I hear construction across the street and realize the guy across the street is haviing his house torn down. There's a bulldozer ripping out trees and the house looks to be next. Actually, the house appears to be a house that WAS torn down last year.

I decide crawling is too time consuming and turn my attention to flight. I get up and leap in the air and flap and easily propel myself to the lake shore. My aim is not to good though. I get to the area devoid of trees. As I'm landing, a car pulls out and out comes a woman. She begins walking to the lake as well. Her outfit is very goofy, black skirt and top both with orange trim along the edgings. She has orange/red hair. She's over made up but you can tell she's cute, even if she does have this weird hooker look going on. She walks over to me, takes my hand and says "this is going to be really good". She seems excited for herself. OK - who am I to fight my sub concious mind? I go with the flow. We get to the embankment and she lies down. I remove her panties but not her skirt and begin to warm her up a little. This carries on for a minute or so. I think about how well certain senses are replicated in LDs. I wake up.
BTW, oral at a lake is not sex on the beach. I'm not counting this one.

I broke my streak of failed lucid attempts and had a few last night, though the first two were disappointing (and odd).

My first was a typical G induced WILD. I had vibrations for what seemed like forever. Medium followed by very high intensity. When they stopped I knew I had transitioned. As is sometimes the case, this WILD leads to a paralysis type of state. I have a lot of trouble rolling over and sitting up. I first try to relax as struggling won't help. I then try to swing a leg over. The dog is in the way, but she doesn't seem to mind that I'm climbing over her with all my weight. I get half way off the couch before I wake.

Again, another WILD. Milder vibrations which don't last as long but when they do stop, I have a "floating" sensation. This is an obvious indicator I'm dreaming. Same problem though. Paralysis. I wonder why there are so many roadblocks to a decent lucid lately. This time I force myself to sit up and swing off the couch with a great deal of momentum. That works and I land on the floor. But the scene is losing cohesion. I try to mentally stabilize it but it falls apart. Rather than wake though, I have a very bizarre experience. Everything goes black. I have a drifting/floating sensation and no sense of any physical presence, dreamspace or realspace. It's almost like I am stuck somewhere between the two. I feel like my exisitence has been reduced to sheer conscious awareness and nothing else. This lasts for what seems like a very long time, though it's probably closer to 20 seconds or so. I wake.

Upon waking, I wonder to myself if this was sleep paralysis creeping into a waking state at the end of my dream, and I simply couldn't open my eyes, hence the blackness. I don't know? But why the lack of physical sensation?

My next dream is a DILD. I am doing some work several houses away. It's an outdoor project of some kind. My wife comes over to tell me about a free-lance marketing job she obtained at our gym. Apparently they are doing some type of Egypt themed promotion and the manager asked her to assist. I find this very boring. She then starts walking away and suggests I come home and play. I assume this to be a sex reference so I follow. She starts running. I run after her. She's way faster than I am. By the time she's 200' away I figure I'll leap in the air and fly superman style. I do so. I then realize that since I'm flying and hugging the ground so well, I'm obviously dreaming. The flight pays off, I catch up with her on the lawn outside our house. She again distracts me with trivial matters, telling me that "it turns out Russ wasn't on the bus after all". I ask her to repeat this and it turns out it's a different message that only sounds that way, but is still rather meaningless. I climb on top of her and we start having sex. She starts some really nasty dirty talk and it's a big turn on. I think to myself that maybe I'll get off while still in the lucid? I wake (FA).

I am face down on the kitchen table of the very first house I lived in. I vaguely remember waking and putting on some eggs to boil at 8:00. I look up and it's 11:10 am. I hear a popping sound from the stove. The water has evaporated from the pan and the eggs are starting to explode. I turn off the heat and realize someone had already removed 8 of the 12 eggs? Odd. I leave the kitchen and wonder if this was a FA. I start to remember the previous dream sequence and realize I'm in our old home. I head upstairs toward my old bedroom. When I get there, I enter and it's my present day room. My wife is in bed. I figure we'll continue where we left off. I remove my pants and underwear. She's fully clothed, wearing white panties and a short white skirt. I climb into bed and simply pull her panties over and enter her. We start going at it that way. This is nice and it goes on for a minute or so but the dream fades and I finally wake for real.

There's an informal "lucid sex task". That's what the torch with LST on it signifies. The last challenge was sex with a celebrity. I accomplished it first, hence I have the torch.  I'll hand it off to the next torch bearer when someone has sex on a beach. Of course I might win that one too, though the august advanced challenge sounds like a good one - I've made a note to try to pick that one off.

You might see some vague references to the LST here and there. You're welcome to join. I don't think you're ever going to see a formal challenge on this one.

I sometimes have this paralysed feeling in lucids too. I don't know why, but it's like I'm very tired in my dreams.

Lots of sex again, but no beach, so now it's time to hand over that torch to me. I had sex ON the beach, WITH a celebrity :D (finally :D)

Well, here's a good pickup line that I learned the other night when some lady used it on me.  She told me I had been chosen to have sex with her.  :chuckle:  How could I turn that down.  I had been chosen.  After waking up and thinking about I realize that she had been the one doing the choosing.  She was very nice though and gave me a ride back to the hotel I was staying in, and even drove me right up to the door of my hotel room.

I've been trying too hard to have lucids lately. So of course, last night I made no attempt at all (no WBTB, no supplements etc ...) and had one. Given this recurring dream, my long term intention is to eliminate this karmic thread by recognizing it as a dream and dealing with it more appropriately. I didn't get to far ...

I'm on my old high school grounds. I'm being herded into the building with hundreds of other kids. Someone mentions to me some jobs being applied for in Australia. I acknowledge that I applied and the person asks if I name dropped to get special treatment. Then he mocks me a little ... "oh, it's JK - I should get special treatment". Then many other people take notice and also mockingly call out my name. I realize I haven't been here in a long time and it's questionable if I should come back at all.

I enter the building and try to remember my combo, 36-18-28? I know that's the combo to something? I head upstairs. The stairwell is very narrow and the paint on the stairs is slippery. The second floor is a great deal higher than I remember. I get to the top and think to myself that I need to go to Miss Novacks english class first period. I'm embarresed to even show up. Won't she just kick me out for blowing off her class all year? I get into the class and a secretary asks me how I feel? She has my laptop there and mentions it was left on but powered down a long time ago. I realize they think I've been sick, so I should just play up that angle. (BTW - they sure as hell didn't have laptops back then).

In my laptop case is a notebook with a schedule taped to the inside front cover. I read it to confirm and memorize the schedule. The times don't make sense and I try to rationalize what this all means. I sit at a table and the kid next to me asks if I'm done vomiting bile? A male teacher starts talking. He says he's going to start some Audio/video. Nirvana's "Smells like teen spirit" starts playing. The video comes on a short while later and it's just a pyschadelic display synced to the beat of the song.

It finally hits me that I'm dreaming. I'm sitting there wondering what I should do. I know I had some intention if I found myself back in HS, but can't quite place it. The song ends and one of the students who's about 50, starts expounding on the significance of that song. He also starts discussing the different AV equipment we have and technically how the video was projecting in this case. I get caught up with this discussion and lose lucidity.

I then think to myself whether going back to HS is really my best strategy? Maybe I should get another degree in a different area? Just then, a discussion commences about some different programs at my old University. Each program is represented by a different waffle style, all four of which are displayed on a poster board. I wake.


You can see why I want to get rid of this recurring dream. What I was trying to do was remember my goal of standing up in front of the class and telling everyone they are DC's and that HS is not important to me anymore since I have several college degrees anyway. Furthermore, I was usually pretty well prepared in HS and would have never found myself in this situation IRL.

You might see some vague references to the LST here and there. You're welcome to join. I don't think you're ever going to see a formal challenge on this one.
Thanks for informing me about the informal lucid sex task DrTechnical.
I may give that one a go next month, although I'd probably have little chance considering the experts I'd be competing against. :chuckle:

Well basically. It's fear of disappointing my parents.

Now I have to spend the next several decades trying to undo this. Interesting how it's always a HS setting and usually english class. NEVER college - since I was on my own by then - or at least decoupled from their day to day affairs.

My brother has this same basic dream too. At least I have a hope of eliminating the thread eventually. He's not proficient at LDing.

I'm at a small 2 person table having dinner with our vice president. He starts complementing me on the nice job I did driving todays inter-team meeting with a well thought out agenda. He then raises a concern or two about pushing a little hard on the issues. I'm surprised he's aware of any of this since he didn't attend the meeting? He walks over to me with some notes so I can have a look. I'm still seated and he leans over on me. Our VP is not a thin guy, and I start getting pushed to the floor. I then realize that this is a dream and it's still a little unstable. When I hit the floor, I try to step into the dream better. Upon stepping in and up, I find myself sitting up on the couch (sort of a FA). I get off the couch and sanity check the VCR time which is showing nothing.

I am moving a little slow. I grab a wall and pull myself toward the front door. My intention is to go down the road and turn our lake into the Long Island Sound and get to my target location. I get to the door and hear rain. I'm wearing socks which gives me temporary cause for concern but I realize it doesn't matter. When I step out the front light is on and the rain has actually stopped. It's still quite dark out. I start walking to the street. I see something which looks like a person or perhaps a ghost? I sneak up on it to startle it just to have some fun. As I get closer I realize it's just the neighbors mailbox. I continue walking. I realize flying will be quicker so I leap in the air and flap. I make some progress but the air is very thick and foggy. I soon wake (another FA).

I look to the clock and it says 3:31 which seems a little early. My head is facing south which is not how I started sleeping. I then hear a power saw coming from the front yard. I'm obviously still dreaming. OK, I figure I'll try something easier. How about the LST task?

I start to head upstairs to find my wife. I take off my T-shirt and head upstairs. I get to our bedroom and remove my shorts and underwear. I climb in. She's already completely naked and half asleep. I rub her arm a little and say "hey honey, it's time we try that food challenge thing. Why don't you get some syrup, or ice cream or something like that?" She says "OK", and hops out of bed in a very motivated fashion. To insure she doesn't go far, I remind her that she left some stuff in the bathtub  ;).

After she goes to the hall I get myself aroused and wait patiently. She grabs a few items from the bathroom then peaks into our daughters room and starts chatting with her. Oh crap - this can only screw things up!  She finishes with her, closes my daughters door and returns. The dream is a little unstable so I'm hoping she moves along. She grabs me and pulls out a bottle of maple syrup and holds it about a foot higher than the "target" and slowly starts dripping maple syrup on me. I'm starting to lose the dream and wonder if it will count if she at least licks some maple syrup off? I of course wake at this point  >:(

Wow you are really getting lucid a lot!  Well congrats on almost doing the LST.  We might start having to give you a handicap, you're getting too good at this.  Soon it will just be you and Sara passing the torch back and forth.

Yeah, this is getting too easy. It's funny how I have such fantastic control of my wife in my dreams. Not as true IRL.

I'm personally giving myself an LST handicap. It only counts if I come. I've had lots of lucid sex dreams, not too many orgasms. I need to work on that.

Well I don't think I'll be able to compete any more if that's the qualification. I've only had an orgasm in a lucid once. :(

Actually, lately I'm lucky if I'm able to do anything other than say "Hey, I'm dreaming" when I get lucid.

Thursday was a G/C morning. I didn't need to wake too early today and figured I would try an independent approach. I took another shot at using my NeuroTrek to try some unexplored higher frequency ranges. Last time I couldn't sleep and was up the rest of the morning. This time I took an L-theanine before hand. I watched TV from 3-3:50 (dozed a little) and put on the NeuroTrek for the next 40 minutes. I couldn't fall asleep though I was close. I took it off and turned over to sleep.

My first dream was non-lucid and quite detailed. I'll omit most of the detail here, but I was at a Danzig show at what looked to be a High School auditorium. The introduction was very cheesy. The band sounded good though. I remember thinking that music has kept Glenn Danzig looking very young, though he looked totally strung out. I felt bad about that.

I wake and try not to move too much. I focus my attention toward my 3rd eye which helps me to WILD when I'm on G/C. Sure enough, within a minute I start to feel vibrations. Not as intense as when I use G/C, but very perceivable. I relax and decide to see where this leads. I feel my body rotating counter clockwise. I think to myself I'm supposed to stay still, but realize it's probably only my astral body and relax. When the vibrations subside, I sit up pretty sure I'm dreaming. I look to the clock which shows a few different times upon looking and turning away, looking again ...

I have that light floating feeling and walk toward the front door. I open it and step outside. It's raining very hard. I start walking to the lake. I realize I'm only wearing a T-shirt and briefs and think to myself that one of these days, I'm going to step outside half dressed thinking I'm dreaming, the cops are going to arrive and haul me away. As I continue to walk the air gets very thick so I decide to walk/crawl on all fours for a while. The detail is incredible. The blades of grass, the imperfections in the asphalt, the sign on a neighbors lawn indicating some chemicals were just put down. I get up again to walk as I'm making better progress.

I get to the lake and leave the road. It's very muddy and my bare feet are sinking into it. I try to find a place in the line of trees that reminds me of the scene I'm trying to conjure. None really do. I simply get to the lake shore and envision a different scene. My eyes fog over into white scene. I hear some waves crashing. I try to relax and let my eyesight return. It does. When I can see again, the scene to my left is unchanged but the scene to my right has the lake forking out wider and wider and leading to a larger body of water, perhaps an ocean. This is not the scene I was hoping for, but it's progress.

Rather than explore this some more, I decide to return to the street and try something else. Flying comes to mind. Oh - the LST task. I think to myself that finding a girl AND food right now will be tough. How about just sex and working on the orgasm thing. OK. I turn around toward the lake again and my mind has conveniently fabricated a girl lying on a blanket. It's lighter now, perhaps dawn. I walk over and kneel down. I caress her legs and work my hands up the outer theighs toward her knees. I wrap my hands around her knees and open up her legs. She's wearing white shorts and a sports bra. She's very fit with nice firm abs, not ripped but very athletic looking. Her hair is blond and pulled back and she has a very girl next door look about her. I don't feel compelled to explain my exact intentions, after all - she should be able to read my mind, I guess? I simply ask her if she wants to help me with something and give her a little sly look. She says "OK, sure". I get up and ask her to take off her shorts. I start removing my underwear. while she's taking off her shorts.

Of course I wake at this point  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

LOL MB. You don't need to feel sorry for me. Like everything else in life, I will keep picking away until I succeed. I'm really glad my control and duration is picking up. If I stopped jumping DC's they would go on longer.

I tell you what, since we both have our relative strong points. I'll make you a trade. You send an astral O my way, and I'll send 2 lucids your way, fair trade? (you can probably negotiate me to 3 or so).

The NeuroTrek is interesting. A couple of basic observations:

1) tons of people have tried brainwave entrainment in the Theta and Alpha ranges and no one has hit on anything relevant, best I can tell. I think everyone is looking in the wrong place :o

2) When I take G/C, I get lots of swirly lights HI. I get the same effect w/ gamma and hypergamma entrainment.

3) I am NOT a natural WILDer. I can count the number of WILDs I've had wo/ G or Hup-A on one hand.

4) Supposedly, Tibetan monks have a lot of natural activity in the higher frequency ranges due to mental training, etc ...   

I already shared a few other thoughts over PM.

This is the only usable data point I have thus far since I had issues sleeping before. That's probably always going to be the case, since we are talking about frequencies associated with conciousness and wakefulness in general.

I'll be playing around in this area once or twice a week. I suspect I can do this without any cross tolerance with my AcH impacting supplements

DrTech,

Can you elaborate on these points?

: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 08, 2008, 03:23:30 PM
Simply put, I've read a lot of references to people using brainwave entrainment in the theta and alpha ranges since these frequency ranges are quite active during dreams. That doesn't mean however that entrainement in these regions will make you lucid.

Yuschaks paper was interesting. He found a lot of 9 Hz bursts in the brainwave data he captured and considered this to be a defining factor of dream lucidity. I personally don't have any tools to effectively create bursts of 9Hz activity every 3-5 minutes. There's no proof it would work anyway?

I've been focused more on the gamma and hyper gammae regions. I think there is a lot interesting things going on there.

Since the notion of geting areas of the brain to talk to each other is a radically different approach than that of neurotransmitter biasing, I would speculate that the LDS approach has no cross tolerance to brainwave entrainment techniques in this range (just a reasonable guess).
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: unseen wombat August 08, 2008, 03:45:55 PM
What about BWGen? You can set it to create 9Hz bursts as often as you want.

The detail is incredible. The blades of grass, the imperfections in the asphalt, the sign on a neighbors lawn indicating some chemicals were just put down.
That sounds awesome. I love it when dreams are so real like that. It's just mind-blowing to realize at the time that it's all just something that your mind is making up.

Shame about losing it right before the good part. That always happens to me too. :( If the dream is super-realistic and I'm really aware, it does. On the other hand, if the dream isn't so great, I don't wake up and am able to go through with it, but it's not good. I can't seem to win either way.

No G/C. That would completely bias the experiement. I know I can get lucid on G/C every 3-4 days.

The BW entrainment stuff is something I'm investigating in between.

I may need to take back what I said about WILDS yesterday. I actually had one this morning just before waking wo/ supplements again.

I slept in which is unusual (I almost always wake early to eat/workout, or do WBTB and try to LD). I had lot's of NLD's. I woke out of one around 6:45 or so and quickly closed my eyes again and just stayed still hoping to directly re-enter my dreamspace. This actually worked for me this time. Straight back into REM!

I had extended and very strong vibrations across my entire body that seemed like they wouldn't stop. When they eventually did, I noticed our bed was higher than normal. Some bearded guy comes to my side and looks at me. I ignore him. I get up and head downstairs. For some reason, I am not thinking 100% clearly, I guess because there was no WBTB or LDS's involved. I feel compelled to sanity check some clocks. They are all saying slightly different things like 10:45, 11:00, 11:15. I also become a little disoriented because some aspects of my house look like my folks old house in NY. I decide to find my watch because I trust it. I reach in the draw and it says 10:00. Now I'm really confused. I start doing time conversions between CST and EST, etc ...

I decide I better just go outside. The front is deeply snow covered and I conveniently find myself in winter clothes. My dad comes over and complements me on how well I've dressed for the weather. I open the door trying to change the temp but fail - still cold. I head out and exit my parents house. This total scene change finally 100% convinces me I'm dreaming. I walk out and around the cars on the driveway. The snow is quite deep and it's hard to walk. My dad comes over again and mentions how cold it is. I tell him it's really not cold at all. I meant this as a reference to LDing and wanted to see what profound reaction my dad would have to that claim. He says ... "OK".

I start heading to their beach. I think to myself I should have started from the back way since it's a little closer and all this snow sucks. I figure I'll get to the start of the woods and fly over them to the beach. At this point the dream becomes unstable and I wake.


EDIT - I remember one other relevant fact. My wife was sleepless at 3:15 or so and I woke and couldn't get to sleep either. I decided to meditate for 20 minutes or so to get sleepy and perhaps induce a lucid. I used my hypergamma disk and meditated for 19 minutes before I become uncomfortable in that position. I went back to bed around 4:15 or so. Hard to say if this contributed in any sense?

I posted my meditation technique a while back in the lucid aids section. It's still there on page 3.

Normally, that position is fine but my back hasn't been the greatest lately and it stiffens up even more at night.

I think meditation, especially w/ brainwave entrainment supports my LDing a great deal. But it is a commitment. You need to find at least 20 min a day to make progress.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 10, 2008, 08:05:42 AM
I'll offer an anecdote only because it's relevant to the dream control I applied. The other day, I'm at the gym and our hot friend L walks over to me and pays me a compliment. I said to her "you know L, you're making me feel like a still have a little something going on". She responds "you know you still have a little something going on, and K knows it too". The chat turns to more blatant adult discussion  :o

Now most guys would use this to convince themselves they could get that person IRL. I convinced myself that I can pull her into my lucids at will considering the obvious sexual tension. (BTW - I actually like my wife, my child and my bank account too much to pursue the RL thing. I have yet to see anyone pull that off long term).

2:45  200 Ug Hup-A, ~ 6 mg Nicotine patch.  200 mg L-theanine.

4:13  I get pissed I'm wide awake and vow never to use N w/ WBTB again. Remove patch and take 1 mg Melatonin.

4:45  Start to have some dream fragments.


The dream:

I feel like I'm drifting off and apply my focus to my 3rd eye region. This immediately induces head/neck vibrations which continue for 10 seconds or so. As soon as I truly relax and submit to the sensation, it stops and I know I'm dreaming. I remember my intention to not let myself get stuck or slowed down in any sense w/ paralysis sensations. I easily get up and head toward the dining room. There is moonlight coming in and it's lighting up a portion of the floor. The detail in the grain patterns of the hardwood floor is stunning. This is always one of the favorite parts of my lucids, how things can look realer than real.

I head upstairs convinced that L is waiting for me. I get to our bedroom and first see my wife on her side of the bed. I then notice another body. On closer inspection it's L. She and my wife both sit up and I make some reference to fooling around a little. My wife complains that she's tired and not into it. I look over to L and in the suave way I typically have with my DC's I ask "how about you L, you wanna F now?". She acknowledges and I take her hand to help her out of bed. She's wearing one of her typically revealing gym outfits - very short cut-off jeans with a low cut tight top. I figure if my wife isn't into it, then staying here doesn't make sense. We head to my music room.

This is where I made my only mistake. We get there and I start focusing too much on taking off my own clothes and not concentrating on her at all. By the time I'm naked from the waist down, I look over and she's gone. I figure that she might have went into the bathroom (where there's lot's of mirrors  ;) ). So I head that way but she's not there. OK, maybe I should just get myself off. I lie down on the tile thinking it's going to be cold but it isn't. I get a little busy with that task. This goes on for a while. It feels fine but I don't really get that close. Maybe it's because I was more focused on that physical task instead of fantisizing a little? OK - I guess that's two mistakes.

I head back into the bedroom to see if my wife is interested yet? I scratch her arm a little and make some reference to having sex. She's still not into it claiming she got a lousy sleep and her back hurts. She gets up to get some ibuprofen. I follow her to the bathroom. At some point, the nightlight falls down and I pick it up and decide to head downstairs to try something else. I start to get confused. Should I leave the nightlight on the floor? I do. I head down. I look outside and it appears to be snowing. On further inspection, it's actually a very heavy hail. I head to the back door but wake.

I'm actually not frustrated by this dream since I did pull off another specific person conjuring and the dream went on for about 30 min or so, even if it's not obvious from the description. This might have been my longest lucid yet, so that's cool.

That's great, you really are lengthening your dreams!  Maybe the nicotine worked for you; there was enough in your system by the time you took off the patch.  Too bad L disappeared.  Oh that's another cool thing; how you are using your lucids to do stuff that you shouldn't do IRL.  Perfect use for dreams, if you can manage to do it, which you seem to be!

Yeah, I agree. I'm sure I had some N left in the system which helped. As I said in the Hup/N post, I'm not down on N per say, just using it at WBTB. It's too tempting to keep trying something that works, and I have fallen back to sleep before w/ Hup-A/N and WBTB. But I've had as many problems as successes. So in the future, I'll just go BTB and be done with it.

And yes, playing in my dreams is lot's of fun. Of course bumping into my wife and L at the gym gets a little weird  :P
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 11, 2008, 08:12:05 AM
Slept about 4 hours and woke kind of restless @ 1:50.

2:00 - 200 mg L-theanine and a few spoons of butter pecan ice cream. watched some bad TV.

2:45 -put on my NT to hit some gamma level entrainment.

~3:15  -  sleeping?  NREM, no dream recall

3:43 - woke and removed the NT. Got comformtable on my RHS.

I start to feell myself drifting off w/ very subtle vibrations starting. I focus my eyes and awareness toward my 3rd eye and the vibrations increase in intensity. I feel very comfortable with this and let the sensations pick up. 1 ~20 sec wave. When it ends I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. I get up and go to the kitchen where I notice the time is quite reasonable. That's makes me second guess the situation. I go back to the TV room to check the VCR time - it's simply blank. OK - dreaming.

I don't have anything pre-planned but decide to go outside. I head to the front door and close my eyes slightly and open the door. Closing my eyes is a tricky thing. When I exit the house, it's light out but the scene is somewhat fogged out and not cohesive. I relax and wait for that to subside. The next thing I know, my sight is perfectly clear but it's nightime again. I head out to the street and turn left. I get the urge to try flying into space and look for the moon as a target. I can't find it. I decide to run and aim for a tree branch and fly superman style. This is something I'm not particularly good at. I failed this time as well. As soon as I leap, I fall like a rock.

I then look around and notice a few lights on in the houses. I think to myself maybe I should find a neighbor to have sex with. Then I realize that makes no sense at all since there aren't any good candidates. Just then, a huge wind comes along and propels me in the air. I fly up and over and just get sucked into the swell. It's so strong and consistent that it keep me up and pushed through the air for at least 30 seconds or so. It's actually really cool to just let something else facilitate the flying for a change.

When I land, I hit the ground and wake (FA).  I am convinced I have woken. I look up and notice a middle age woman w/ short hair leaning over to read something on the refrigerator. I get confused and look again but she's gone. I get up to investigate. I enter the kitchen and put on the light trying to startle her but no one is there. I then see a section of the kitchen we've long forgotten about (???). It's a round portion of the room that must be part of a turret. I see the space is unused and think to myself that we can put some of my daughters toys there. I walk over and realize there's appliances as well, including two sinks. I get concerned that we've been in this house for 9 years wo/ running the water. I figure the iron from the well must be clogging things up horribly so I run each faucet for a while. The water out of each is actually nice and clear. I wake for real.

Looked over to the clock ... 4:06.

Crap, that sucks that you lost it for the FA. I hate when that happens. At least you got some nice flying in though. Maybe next time you'll get the moon.

How does your gamma level entrainment work? Do you ramp up to that level, or down, or what is the playlist like? How long are the spikes? I'm looking make a new program for my meditation engine on my PSP.

Hi UW:

I don't want to ignore you're query so I'll answer the basic question. I've been doing a lot of experimentation and I'm optimistic I may have hit on something interesting. At the moment I'm keeping the details a little close to my chest.

I'm leveraging the NT to hit a particular brainstate, but it's the relation of the brainstate to the carrier that seems to be interesting. That type of implementation can only really be done w/ a tool like the NT.

Basically though, I'm playing around with frequencies around 40 Hz. I haven't tried binaural beats in this range. I've mentioned this to a few people already.

If you use 40 Hz for meditation you might have a nice experience. I do this from time to time and it's very focusing.

Good luck.

It does seem like you must have hit on something, you are lucid more frequently than I've ever seen anybody, I think.  :goodjob:

:boogie: Go, Doc, Go!



 :paranoid:

All kidding aside, I have hit on something which seems predictable for me. You probably didn't notice, but my positive entrainment experiences have been the day after a LDS success. Normally, I like most people have lousy recall on that day because I shot my proverbial load on the LDS effort the night before. So the entrainment method seems to have no cross tolerance with the LDS stuff.

More data required.

My next LD attempt is Wed morning, though I will be trying the Yuschak 16 KHz file. Scot was good enough to forward it to me. I can in fact hear the 16K tone, so that's a positive.

The Dream:

I'm on the couch trying to get comfortable to WILD. I realize I'm at a 45 degree angle to my usual position. A small child or baby crawls up and onto one of the couch pillows. I re-orient to face my head north. Upon re-orienting, I realize the TV is on. Actually, it doesn't appear on, but it has a sound track playing. It's a Slayer song. I wonder why Slayer is playing on TV and realize it must be over my Sirius radio, which I must have plugged into the TV? Then there are some flashes of picture on the screen. I start to float off the couch. Dreaming!

I get up quite happy that my new method has worked again. The dream is a little unstable but I don't really make any special actions to resolve that. I head to the kitchen and notice the layout of some of the items on the counter top make no sense. The toaster is missing completely. I have to choose, fly or sex? Flying is tempting but I choose sex. I head upstairs hoping to find my wife and L in bed again. I'm somewhat half hearted in this attempt, but remind myself to explain that I'm here to collect on Moonbeams orgasm that she sent my way.

I get to the bedroom and it's empty (as you all know, half hearted intentions never pan out). The bed has some books in it and a flower vase with some flowers. I think to myself that this is what it must feel like to get divorced (a friend of mine is and it was on my mind. Getting along just fine with Mrs.T BTW). I look out the door and our daughters bedroom door is open which can only mean that she's gone too. I decide to head out to investigate but lose the dream at this point. I wake.

I'm naked driving in a car approaching our office. I'm speaking with a doctor. He/She (don't recall which) is explaining to me that when a man is gettinig sexually stimulated, it's best to continue straight to the end, rather than start and stop - which leads to semem backing up and getting stuck. I pull into the office and though the lot is not very full I pick a spot quite far from the entrance. I get out and hop into the air and fly about 4 feet off the ground toward the doorway. I do what's the equivalent of a backstroke but in mid air.

It strikes me that I'm naked and flying. Lucid. I continue to the door and land. There's a guy outside the front door smoking. He immediately notices that I'm naked and begins starring at me. I tell him it really doesn't matter, it's just a dream anyway. I enter the building but the lobby looks very different. It's much larger in scale with high ceilings and marble floors. Of course there are people everywhere. Slowly but surely everyone takes notice of the naked guy. I choose not to make eye contact which would be making too big a deal out of it. I feel like I should explore a little without putting my will on the dream per say.

I decide to head upstairs. The stairs are very ornate. Marble floors with gold handrails. I use my hands along the rails to pull myself up the stairs, using my feet very little. I realize that this dream seems very stable and I'm optimistic I can stay here for a while. I turn the corner and see a room which is open. I get the sense I should enter. There's one guy there who seems to be the point of focus. There are several other guys and two woman. I enter. I realize the guy is pushing steroids. He looks over to me and I hope he's not going to use me as an example of how good his product is. Sure enough, he looks over to me and boasts about how wonderful his steroids are. One girl makes brief eye contact with me and then looks away. I think to myself that she must be a little attracted and I should make eye contact again. I look over hoping she will pay attention again but at this point I wake.

Yep, all natural (except for that little androxin experiment back in '94 - OK, the effect and the statute of limitations has long run out on that one).

When I go through my little WBTB ritual and no supps or other lucid aids I get lucid about 50% of the time. That's the control and it's pretty well estabished.

Last night was actually gamma meditation before bed and CaleaZ + nicotine at 1:00 am. No WBTB, since I needed some sleep. This lucid was around 4:30 am or so. This was just fun, not a usable data point.

When do the rest of us get to know what this awesome lucid inducer is? Will we need to get a neurotrek to use it?

I wish I had something with a consistent 50% success rate.

You really are dedicated. I couldn't WBTB during the week.

I'm still in the early data collection phase. Yes, right now you would need an $800.00 NeuroTrek. However, that's only because the NeuroTrek is so versatile. If you built a small device that did the specific setting's I'm using it wouldn't be so pricey (hmmmm, where the hell is DrT going with that?).

Last night I did WBTB 45 min, NT/gamma for 56 minutes and fell asleep at some point with the NT on. I woke and removed it. I got comfortable and had tons of HI, mostly bright lights in whatever direction I looked. I may have fallen back asleep?   The dream ...

I'm on the couch in an odd position. I sit up and notice the remote control on the arm of the couch. I could have sworn I left it on the TV. Then I realize I'm still wearing the NT. I take it off and it hits me. Dreaming! I'm a little sluggish and struggle to get off the couch. I relax and take my time. I succeed. The room is unrecognizable. I enter a hall and realize it's my parents old house in NY. I briefly consider if I should explore what the new owners have done with the place. I choose not to and head outside instead. I feel very light and do the obvious thing - jump in the air and flap. I quickly gain altitude. It's dark out and I direct my flight to the beach. My eyesight fogs over and I become more or less blind but I continue. I hear waves and seagulls and just keep flapping. When my eyesight returns a minute later, I am now over a vast ocean. I'm several hundred feet in the air and there is no sign of land. The view and sensations are blissful as can be. I continue for a few minutes.

Eventually I reach land. I reduce my altitude to check out the scene. I'm somewhere in the middle east. The buildings are older style construction, with sand bricks, mud and tree limbs sticking out of the roof structures. Some of the buildings are a few stories tall. I fly through the town, down streets occasionally flying up to a tall building and hovering for a while before I continue. Eventually a tall buildings roof top catches my eye and I fly up to it. I reach out with my right arm and grab it. I pull myself over and sit on the roof. I then take greater notice of the street scene. It's a busy market like setting. I decide to fly down and interact with the people a little.

I enter a building. There are four cloaked men sitting at a table. I get the sense that the place is a brothel. I reach into my pocket for money. I find 10 cents. I put it on the table with a look on my face like it will probably suffice. The left most guy takes the coin and replaces it with an object he puts on the table. I'm guessing it's a ticket? I look over but there's nothing there. He points but I fail to see anything. I shake my head up and down trying to get an acknowledgement that I may proceed. He let's me through.

I figure at this point I'll be treated to a line-up of scantily clad belly dancer types. Instead, I enter what appears to be a western style disco and bar. How disappointing. If there's one thing I hate it's bars. I walk around for a bit and the dream becomes a little unstable. I enter a small room with two woman at a table. I reach over to one of the women and touch her belly to gain dream stability. Her stomach is very warm. She takes this as an advance. I'm not interested as she's not too appealing. I think to myself that I should wake at this point. I consider opening my eyes quick to induce that. Instead, I wake without even trying.

Second dream an hour or so later ...

I'm in my car and notice an old Camaro SS next to me. It's a light metallic blue and its been well maintained. We're a a stop light and I try to get a look. I realize the car is very high (out of proportion). The light changes and we continue. I tell myself the dream feels very "dreamlike". It then hits me that I'm dreaming. I just sway the car back and forth speeding down the road with no concern about hitting anything. I wake after a minute of this activity.

Hopefully to production of a prototype putting out only that frequency to test on his friends, making them lucid, then the formation of a company that he allows them to invest in which produces the cheap, affordable, wildly popular device, making us all rich beyond our wildest lucid dreams.  ;) JK, I'd settle for you telling me you know for sure that this particular frequency is what is getting you lucid, and it's not due to any of the other factors specific to you.

It seems to me that your dreams are getting longer and longer, too.

Haha, I know. If you need any help programming, I've just learned how to program the AVR microcontroller. I'm going to be buying a programmer and some chips to make my own (second version of a) lucid mask in the next couple weeks. (I made one with all analog parts and IC already, but haven't tested it too much because the battery life is atrocious).
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 18, 2008, 08:38:37 AM
G/C + 0.5 mg Melatonin + 200 mg L-theanine (the last two items really are helping me a lot, more even transitions and more dream stability I think)

BTW, I think Moonbeams theory about Galantamine might be correct  :o. I figured I would try to do the LST task (with Orgasm handicap) if I WILDed. The dreams get more intense as the evening progresses  :angel:

I start to feel my vibrations. The dog is cleaning her paws and making a lot of noise. I wonder how that will effect things. The vibrations are one even wave. When they stop the dog is still licking but I assume I've transitioned into my dream. I double check that the VCR clock and nightlite are messed up. Dreaming. I head to the frig and grab a big bottle of hersheys chocalate syrup. I make my way upstairs and find my wife in bed. I pull my pants and briefs to my ankles and hop in.

I wake my wife and explain it's time to try the LST task again. I'm already aroused and drip a generous amount of syrup over myself. She positions herself accordingly and leaving "everything" horizontal, starts licking the syrup starting from the base, around both sides and working toward the top. This turns out to feel really good, very erotic actually. I get too into it and wake.

Again, vibrations - one wave. I get up and check the clock and nightlite. Both are disfunctional. I figure the syrup is still upstairs and make my way. The kitchen floor looks totally different. We have wood floors but in the dream they're lenolium (sp?). There's a pattern of glowing rectangles all over the floor. It looks very psychadelic and I admire the trippy effect. The library is very dark and I feel my way around. I wake.

I'm in a room at what appears to be a family gathering (not mine). I immediately know i"m dreaming. There are many people at a table and one woman who's about 50 wearing only a skirt. She's reaching down to something that may have fallen? I notice that she still has really nice perky boobs. When she sits back up I head over and help her to the floor. She's totally naked now and assumes a position on her hands and knees. I kneel behind her and warm her up a little. I then get up and try to get my pants off but struggle to get them around my feet. I wake.

Another WILD with vibrations. I get up. This time the pants won't be a hinderance. I stand and pull my sweat pants down - only to find another layer. I walk into the kitchen and sit on the floor. I pull down my next pair and find another layer underneath. Now I notice I'm wearing sneakers too. Crap! I pull down one more pair and get to the end. I slowly wrap the whole mess over my sneakers and remove it. I then take off my sneakers too.

It's dark in the library again and I feel my way around. I head upstairs knowing that the syrup should still be there from last time. I hear the shower running. I enter the bathroom and find my wife just outside the shower. She's wet but the shower hasn't been turned off yet. I walk over and caress her and we kiss. I suggest we finish the LST task. She's not into it. I then say to myself "OK, she's just a DC". I reason that I'll use an insight I once heard (and please, no one get the wrong impresssion). There's a theory that says women often have a fantasy about being "taken" by their BF's or husbands. With this mindset, I walk her over to the vanity and bend her over. I put her arms out and place them on the backsplash for support. I reach into the main draw looking for some vaseline  :o. Oh, it's in the top left draw, OK. I find it and apply a generous amount. I enter her and I'm a little over zealous. She complains but quickly gets use to it. Then we totally get into it. She's moaning and her hair is flailing back and forth. I'm watching the whole scene in the mirror and it's a total turn on. I get very close but start to get this weird tunnel vision effect and know the dream is about to end. I slow up to stabilize things. I forget the exact sequence here, but she somehow vanishes. I try to finish up myself. It's not nearly as hot as the previous scene and I can't seem to finish. I give up and wash up.

I start thinking to myself that I've been trapped in this lucid a long time. I look to the tub/shower and it's oriented the wrong way (flipped around). It's otherwise exactly as expected. The room is much longer than IRL and the vanity top is a cheesy see through plastic with hammered finish. What horrible taste I have in my dreams. I wake.

Goes to show you that 40 years later, I still don't know crap about women. Hmmmm, my second guess on this one is authority figures ... bosses, etc ...

I like to use this whole RL fantasy mechanism to make the LD fantasy more obtainable. Just a little mental trick I stumbled upon at some pt.

I have a direct report who is attractive, but talk about something that would feel so wrong. That one isn't going to happen.

Oh, I could have been more clear I guess. I'll elaborate in part because the dream control I'm applying may be of value to others.

Take my wife for instance. I know she has certain fantasies that are a turn on to think about, but that she wouldn't feel comfortable with IRL. But I can easily leverage that to explore the fantasy in a LD knowing full well that deep inside, she's very turned on by it.

Or take our friend from the gym. While I wouldn't explore it IRL, knowing that there's some sexual tension between us, it's easy to pull her into my LD's and explore since I know she's kind of interested.

In the case of the woman who reports to me it's different. First, I don't get the vibe she's interested. Second, it's so fundamentally wrong (she's married, I'm married, I'm her boss ...) that I probably couldn't succeed in pursuing some fantasy situation w/ her in a dream because there's no RL experience to leverage.

I'm in the middle of a WBTB w/ G/C, but had a DILD toward the end of my 2nd sleep cycle (~ 3 hours in):

I'm at a gas station filling my car. I get the sense I'm in Las Vegas. An old fraternity brother of mine JH walks over to me to check what's going on. At roughly this point, I realize I'm dreaming and that there's some way to rig the pump to get free gas. I'm cautious not to let JH see me do this as he's now a Major in the US army, last I recall. He would probably get pissed. He goes back to his car without saying hi.

At some point, this seen morphs into my bedroom in my childhood home. I haven't lost lucidity yet. I'm well aware I'm dreaming. I figure I'll do some lucid O practice. I reach under the dresser and sure enough a small stack of adult magazines are right were I left them like 25 years ago. I take one and head into the bathroom. Some lotion is conveniently on the countertop (by and large, my subconscious works w/ me quite well). I get busy with that task. It feels very real. I start thinking to myself that I'm really sleeping in bed, curled up on my RHS, but here is my astral body engaged in this task. The thoughts about waking screw up the scene of course and I lose lucidity.

I don't wake however. I'm on a couch in my present house with a friend from the gym. We're discussing an old girlfriend of mine who is staying with us. She's sleeping in the guest room. Neither me nor my friend can believe that my dad can't figure out that she's different ( she decided she was a lesbian about 2 years after we broke up - BTW, that's a weird thing to find out IRL).

OK, I'm letting the G/C settle in. I'll almost certainly be back.

UPDATE: I tried to fall back asleep thinking of a good task. I gave myself insomia in the process but developed an interesting goal. My wife was inquiring about job opportunities at my work for her friend La who is quite cute. Based on the female insights offered above ( :paranoid: MB) I came up with a little fantasy about being able to help La if she was willing to get it on w/ my wife, and then me  :o.

I have my usual head and neck vibrations. The G is wearing off so the waves are modest in intensity. When they stop I have a rolling over sensation. I get off the couch and check the VCR time which is fogged over. I head to the kitchen to find a small terminal server monitor on the counter top. It has some text on it and my first reaction is that it might be there to tell me something profound? In reality, it's just an ordinary boot up screen.

I head upstairs. I hear some noise which is encouraging. When I get to our bedroom, my wife is there in an unusual dress. It's white with big flowers on it. It looks like a southern style sun dress and is not her style at all. She sees me and wants to fool around. I tell her that "you should go get La now so I can watch you two get it on". She says "OK, but first why don't you take off your clothes and play with me a little". I didn't argue the point. I think to myself that the dream is nice and stable right now. I start getting undressed and so does she. I get to the point where I'm removing my final article of clothes and remember how problematic this has been lately.  I wake.

Oh well, it's a cool fantasy and my dream wife already said it was fine with her. Maybe this weekend?

Yeah, well even though there's a lot of physical stuff going on in my lucids, I do try to keep the descriptions clean. It's not like this is penthouse letters. I leave a lot of the nasty language and descriptions out  angel

I had one very short lucid this morning. It's interesting how emotions can be lucidity killers sometimes.

8:30 3 mg M, 2:45 WBTB 45 min; gamma entrainment 45 min (no sleep), try to sleep ...

I'm on the second floor of our local mall which is slated to be torn down. I look around and it's quiet and dark. I look over to an escalator and notice a small girl jump over an obstruction on one of the stairs and make her way down. I walk over to take a closer look wonderig if the escalator is even working. It's not. The obstruction is a big pile of metal a few steps down and about 3 feet high and I consider the danger of getting over it. I wonder how the girl got over it when I realize "oh, this is a dream of course". I take one big hop over the pile of metal and continue walking down the steps.

The scene is very surreal. The lights are dim and most stores are closed down. I start to walk. I then think about how sad it is that the people who recently purchased the mall and put all kinds of money into it, couldn't straighten out the profitability of the place. It makes me feel bad about the store owners who were working hard trying to make a living, and other people impacted by the lousy economy.  At about this time, I lose my lucidity.

I continue walking. One store catches my eye. it's a huge Hallmark card and gift shop. I start walking that way. It's clear that there's an entrance from the mall, but also a drive-up access from outside. The store is very big and well lit. I walk over and realize it's not just a card store but they sell lots of books as well. I puruse a large childrens section of books through the window. I wake.

Weekly galantamine sex romp ...

I do my usual WBTB and find it hard to fall back to sleep. 45 minutes later I have some very coherent HI but can't transition. Then my vibrations start. I'm glad they've arrived and I just relax. When they end I try to get up. I realize I can't. I try to sway one way then the other with little luck. I finally get enough momentum to get up and onto the floor. The scene is not 100% stable (I've come to realize this is true of my first G inuced lucid of the night). I stumble to the refrigerator and reach in. I can't see well but feel around for the chocolate syrup. I find it and head upstairs. My mouth is very dry and I stop in the bathroom to drink a little water - it feels very thick. I head to the bedroom and wake my wife. Before hopping in bed, I figure I'll remove my shorts and briefs. My recurring underwear problem returns ... the waist band is too tight to remove them. I do eventually succeed. I hop in and wake my wife. I ask her "so honey, do you want to try the LST again, or do you want to go to the bathroom and get your friend your hiding in there and bring her in so I can watch her go down on you? She thinks about her options for a moment and gets up and heads to the bathroom. YES! it worked. I get over excited and wake.

I wake but just lie there still as can be. Within 20 seconds or so the vibrations return and so does my dreamspace. I get up and realize this dream is starting much more stable. I sanity check the VCR which has a blank clock. I go to the refrigerator and open it. It's dimly lit and the syrup is right where it should be. I guess I'll bring it up again. I head up and reach the bedroom. My wife is restless. I rub her thigh to let her know I've returned. Again, I have issues getting my damn underwear off, but manage a little quicker this time. Again, I ask if she wants to bring in her surprise friend. She says, "but what would we do? She wouldn't poop through her shirt, would she?"  ???  I explain that she wouldn't and that I just want to watch a bit and then join in. She agrees and gets up. I hear some noise which makes it obvious there's more than one person in the bathroom. I get over excited and wake.

Same thing, I lie very still. Vibrations quickly return and I transition. I get up. The scene is so perfectly coherent. The dog gets up and tried to wrestle me to the ground. I ask her to give me a break, we'll go out soon. The fact that she's so tall and strong convinces me I'm dreaming, no more RC's required. I head up. More difficult underwear. Again, I ask my wife to round up her friend. She quickly agrees and hops out of bed a little more enthusiastically this time. I wait patiently. Same thing, more sounds of multiple people, someone pees and flushes. Then the door opens. I only see sillouettes. The first person is my wife obviously. The second person is also naked, but I can't identify who it is, it's too dark. It's definately not L ... too tall. I wake.

I'm in a house at a family gathering, not my own, There's a woman on the floor. She's on her stomach and her hands and feet are tied. I realize I have no idea how I got here. I then realize it's my grandparents old house. Dreaming. I do the obvious thing, ignore everyone and head over to the woman. She has some stretchy pants on and I pull them down. I start licking her from behind. I close my eyes for a moment. The next thing I know, we're both naked and she's now on her back but I'm still servicing her. She gives me a look like she's ready. I get up and give it to where she's not expecting :o . She's totally startled by this, but doesn't ask me to stop. After a minute things get very intense and she's obviously into it. I feel like an orgasm is building. The scene starts to darken a little like I'm losing the dream. I center my visual attention on her face and pick up the pace. That helps for a bit. But after 30 more seconds, the scene slowly gets darker and darker and fades to black, even though I can still feel everything. The tactile senations fade too - I wake.

It's 5:30 by now and almost time to rise. I consider giving it one more go? Then I hear my wife stirring upstairs. OK, dreamtime over  ;)

My subconcious like to throw up challenges. If this continues much more, I might have to go to bed without underwear. I had the same issue with blankets at one point. Couldn't get them off. I no longer sleep w/ a blanket when I LD. Problem solved.

These dreams are incredible man. How do you do it? It really is almost every night now.

This was just my typical G/C night. I do seem to have pulled together a large enough bag of tricks that I more or less get lucid when I try.

Really I'm working on the dream control. Other than all the physical stuff, there's a number of things going on here which other people might find helpful in their dreams:

1) Give a DC several choices and let them choose. But word it and use a tone to convince yourself and them that one of the options is definatley do-able,
2) Ask a DC to go to a specific room to retrieve something. This works well.
3) When it comes to sex, "warm up" the DC. I find that otherwise, they're not "physically ready" if you know what I mean, nor are they into it.

Now if I can only hold out till the end. Concentrating on her face helped a lot. I think this will work even better next time around.

Who's we? I need to practically give my wife a full body massage before we get busy.

Oh and number 4 ...

(4) when getting the wife involved in a threesome, let her pick the other woman. (she has so many cute friends at the gym it wouldn't matter. Now that I think of it, I definately know who the other woman was since her hair was very similar to my wifes. Good choice honey!)

9/FM/R - Pre

A brief lucid. the non-Lucid part is more interesting to be honest ...

I'm on an away mission with Commander Data from Star Trek TNG. I get the sense that I have some authority. We're on a well lit alien vessel which we believe to be abandoned. We're searching a room for something. I get a communication and the sender calls me "captain". He warns Data and I that two men are in the hallway and heading our way, they'll be here momentarily. I scold the message sender for not giving us more advanced warning. We both move away from the doorway and deeper into the room. Within seconds the two men pass and nearly disregard us. At the last moment they notice us and turn back around. I pull out my phaser and fire, but it only emits a red gas which travels 2-3 feet.

I run up to one of the men (they're humanoid) and again fire the phaser hoping that the gas is at least poison. It does nothing. I figure I'll take a new approach and apologize so the guys don't get pissed and blast us away. At about this time, I realize the ridiculous nature of this scene and become lucid. It's such an odd circumstance that I'm not really sure where to go with it. I look around and notice that the room egresses to a second hallway 180 degress from the main door. This second hall is a tube which heads slightly to the right and descends at about a 15 degree angle. I figure I'll take that exit and explore. I unfortunately wake.

It did nothing but piss off the other two guys. Then when I woke, I got pissed because I wasn't thinking more clearly. I missed an obvious chance to get transported back to the Enterprise and order an intense counseling session with Troi.

2 G/C, 200 mg L-theanine, 0.5 mg Melatonin

Unfinished business, threesome and/or orgasm

I figured I would pick up where my wife and I left off. She had retrieved one of her friends. They were both naked and I couldn't see who she was bringing in. Later that day, I figured out that based on the silouette (height, body type and hair) that it was T from the gym. The dreams ...

I finally have some vibrations and relax until they end. I have a floating sensation when they do. I easily get off the couch but become stuck when I get to my feet. The visuals darken and fade some. I reach for the couch and nearby chair with my two hands and just feel around and orient myself based on those tactile sensations. The dream stabilizes and I continue. I go through the doorway from the kitchen to Library but have to squeeze through what is normally a 3+ foot wide opening. I push through and head upstairs. I hear my wife stirring. She was restless at 2:00 am IRL and it strikes me that maybe I woke up in the process of stabililzing the dream? I can't just go into the room and ask my wife to go get T if this isn't a dream! I figure I'll do another reality check or two when I get in the master bedroom. I wake.

Like last time, I try to chain my WILDS. I lie perfectly still and wait. I have a few modest vibration starts but nothing strong. Then I get a nice consistent wave. I open my eyes slightly and see the wall in my parents house (their den has wall to wall dark red brick). I wonder if I will enter my dreamspace in that house? The vibrations subside. I get up in my own house. I look at the clock on the VCR and it's 2 something - too early. I go to the kitchen and sanity check those clocks as well which also give me bad times. OK, definately dreaming. I head to the library which has an arched wall and notice several kitchen rags hanging from the arch and drying. There are also very fine spider webs hanging from the arch. The webs almost look like christmas icicle lights. The light is on at the base of the stairs. I head up.

My wife K is in the bathroom in a cute aqua nightie (hmmm  - totally not her taste). I head up and notice the shower curtain is drawn mostly open, hence T can't be hiding there. I say "honey, why don't you go get T now". I get an unexpected response "what do you mean go get T" giving me a really pissed look. K walks into the bedroom. I follow. I remind her that last time she seemed cool with it and that she even picked T. I tell her that it's just something that would be a real turn on for me and that we should try it just once. If she doesn't like it, we don't have to do it again. She settles down and seems to agree. I head to the hall and yell out "hey T, why don't you come on in now". I'm not quite sure where she is so I yell pretty loud. Then I hear steps on the hardwood floor below. I look down and first see a shadow of a person headed this way and then sure enough ... T walks over with an anxious look on her face. She starts climbing the stairs. I head back to the bedroom and remove my sweat pants (I left the underwear off prior to sleeping to avoid that snafu). I start unbuttoning my shirt when I get totally enthused about again conjuring a specific person into my dreams - and one who is very hot BTW. Of course I wake at this point. FUCK.

Oh well, I get a little closer each time.

My WILDS always work like this. My mind remembers were I left off in my physical space and starts me there. I know this is not unique - Clairity describes the same exact thing in her WILD tutorial as I recall. It's like groundhog day. You can keep picking away at a goal until you get it right - not the worst situation to have.

Actually, one goal of mine is to get good at imagining myself in a different location before the WILD, and transitioning into my dreamspace at that point. That would be a great skill to have but I haven't given it much practice yet. That's why I took note of the different scene (my parents wall) when I was transitioning. It's kind of on my mind.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy

...but very uncommon.  That is such an interesting skill.

One time in college I woke up from sleep, thought about my morning classes, got up, and then saw myself sleeping in bed.  It scared the total **** out of me.  Too bad I couldn't handle it as I would have loved to have been able to walk around and explore a bit.

Hopefully I will get the chance again.

9:30:   Sleep
12:20:  Wake and take 2 10X CaleaZ caps and apply ~ 8mg Nicotine patch
3:50:    Wake and try to WILD
4:20:    Wake out of WILD

Two caps seem to have been too much, or maybe I took them too early in my sleep cycle. Regardless, I woke every half hour with very mediocre dream recall. At 3:50 I got on my LHS and tried to WILD. I maintained this position for about 10 minutes before some very mild vibrations kicked in. I repositioned a little and they subsided but restart. Eventually I hit a long drawn out vibrational state feeling my entire body vibrate back and forth. It finally tapers off instead of the abrupt stop I get with G/C.

I look over to sanity check the clock next to my bed. I see two clocks, one dim and one well lit. I look away wondering if it's just a visual trick and try to imagine both have gone away - and all I see is one faded clock. I get up and realize my eyes are stuck shut with "sleep". I feel around and make my way downstairs convinced I'm dreaming but in need of a resolution. I eventually feel my way to the kitchen sink and decide to use some water. The last time I had this issue, splashing water in my eyes woke me. Instead, I run the faucet and use only a little water cupped in my hand to slowly clear the eye sticking. This works great and I can now see fine. I decide to go out to fly.

I leave the house and the backyard is overgrow. Not only are trees and branches on the yards perimeter, but also throughout the yard. There are several branches down from a storm. I choose an open path and run. Picking up speed I leap forward in the air and flap for thrust. It works great. I hear several guys in the yard behind and to the right. It sounds like they're doing yardwork, clearing branches. I try to fly high enough so they can see me to warrent a reaction, but I can't quite make out where they are. I'm at about tree height now and decide to do some maneuvers. I fly down at a 60 degree angle swooping until I get near the ground and then fly back up. I do this several times and then decide to try to gain more altitude. But getting about the trees (an obvious point of reference) is tough. I get a little higher, not much.

I then remember my goal of message passing to self. I figure I'll try an alternative approach. I fly to the house and hover outside the bedroom window. The window itself is different than IRL. There's a small outer window which swings open, and in inner window. I peak in. The bathroom light is on and my wife is not in bed. In this sleep position, my physical head is pointed at the window in question. I can see mysef perfectly fine - no sheets on, lying on my back with my legs off the the right a little and my right arm resting on my stomach. I can only see my hair from this position. I figure I'll tap on the window, to either wake up the version of me in bed, or at least get my wifes attention which might yield an interesting result too. But tapping to wake the physical me turns out waking the astral me.

I actually had a FA here but didn't catch it. I wake for real.

It's all persistence and experience, nothing more. I am slowly getting my dream control closer to where I would like it to be.

I fail too .... after my lucid I had a dream about being in a tattoo parlor watching a friend (who I haven't seen in about a decade) get a big back piece. It finishes up in like 2 minutes. He gets up and has this ugly blue banner piece across his chest. The artist says he works cheap and it will only cost $21.00. Then the artist and I start talking about lucid dreaming and how it's realer than real and so totally cool to fly.

Talk abut an obvious miss. Some dreams are just not meant to be lucid I guess.

How long have you been at it, Dr. T?

I first tried to learn about 10 years ago based on EWOLD with limited success. I tried to learn again in the spring of '06. I've put a lot of time and effort into it since.

On one hand, I consider myself to be on the boarder of being a natural. I realize now I used to have WILDS when I was a child and didn't know what the hell they were. But on the other hand, I do put a lot of effort into trying different approaches some of which are quite original. Lord knows I've given up a heck of a lot of sleep in WBTB sessions in the last two years.

I really do think it's mostly about persistence and confidence. It builds on itself.

Most of my tricks are spelled out pretty clearly in DJ entries and various posts. There isn't much I haven't shared  :paranoid: ;)

4:45     Woke from NREM sleep, remove NT

I had a few interesting experiences, one I guess I'll call a LD though it was such a unique exprience I handled it rather poorly.

Near WILD 1

Am I trying to relax and I'm experiencing a variety of HI. Some swirly light stuff, some full blown 2-D images, etc ...  Suddenly I find myself in a 3-D scene driving along a country road. A colleague is in my car and we discuss how on the old HW platform we used to bit map flags into control words to save memory. I put a pencil in the cup holder which is empty (I usually keep my work badge in one of the cups). I never really catch this transition into my dreamspace nor do I try to control it in any sense. It becomes incoherent and I lose it.

WILD

I'm lying on the couch trying to relax. I get an occasional sense of sleep paralysis which is unusual for me. Then I hear a small radio next to me. I can clearly hear Moonbeams voice and it appears to be an audio version of a Mortal Mist interview. She starts discussing OOBE's and how it's impossible to see yourself in a LD/OOBE. I start thinking to myself that her voice sounds more clear and realistic then I could have possibly remembered it based on conscious memory. I realize I'm dreaming but I'm quite mesmerized by the quality of the voice  ??? She goes on to say that she realizes DrTechnical would tend to disagree with that theory since he recently had that experience, but that she will be changing my avatar to fix that problem. The voice trails off and so does the dream as I feel a subtle transition back to my physical space.

Trying to WILD from a NLD.

I'm at work and I decide to curl up on the floor with a blanket and pillow and try to sleep/LD. Others are there but I disregard them as well as the inappropriatness of this action. I relax, close my eyes and start getting imagary. It becomes very coherent and I try to step into it - but I feel somewhat paralyzed. I relax but lose the image (so I'm still in a NLD with eyes closed). I then start to feel vibrations which lead the dream me to believe I'm transitioning into my dream space. The vibrations stop and I have actually transitioned from my dreamspace into my physical space (i.e. I woke up). NOTE - sometimes I feel vibrations when leaving a dream as well.

Last night was a G/C night and it was pretty close to a wasted opportunity. I think I'm trying too hard. 1 Lame DILD, one brief WILD.

Set-up: Since I tend to get a lot of WILDS with G, I figure I'll work on the threesome with wife task. Since she seems to be fine with T from the gym, I figure going upstairs and conjuring T is a wasted effort at this point. I'll transtion, head upstairs and listen for who is moaning. That will set-up the precise seen and I'll take it from there.

Scratched up floor

I make my way into the library and notice the hardwood floor is completely scratched up from the dog. Not just scratches, but guages that go so deep there are little bits of wood laying around. I get livid. I start yelling for the dog. I head to the family room but she's not there. I head to the kitchen but she's not under the kitchen table. I go back to the scratched up floor, thinking about how I'm going to need wood filler and a well matched stain. Then I notice a pattern. I'm not sure what these are called, but sometimes when counting to 5, some people use 4 vertical lines and one diagonal then move to the next set. Well there were about 6-8 of these sets. My dog is smart, but not that smart. I realize I'm dreaming. It's such a tremendous relief that it's only a dream floor that I pause and relax for a moment. The come down is such a change in emotions that I wake.

Advanced conjuring

After several missed WILDS, I finally get a nice even wave. I feel my body sway back and forth even though I'm sure I'm not physically moving. When it ends I'm almost certain I'm dreaming. I expect to feel a little sluggish since it's my first WILD but I get up easily. The clock says 5:37 which is reasonable. I'm still pretty sure I'm dreaming but need more confirmation. I head to the kitchen and mentally disable the microwave clock. Sure enough, I get in and it's blank. Tricky WILD. I start heading toward the stairs. As I get closer, my plan comes to fruition. I hear something going on upstairs. As I get closer, it becomes clear that my wife is getting some and she's very close - a repetitive uh ... uh ... uh ...   OK, that's the best possible scenario, T is busy w/ my wife and I can get busy with T  :angel:.   The obvious thing happens. I wake.

Frustrating, yes. But will I at least make it upstairs to watch next time, probably.

Slept about 6 hours.
Took 1 CZ cap to see if it would help stabilize things.
45 min WBTB
58 min NT w/ GE - some REM, some non-REM, some time up. Remove and try to LD
Woke out of a LD 16 minutes later.


Trapped by a vine

I have a series of brief NLD scenes. At one point my lower body is rising off the couch. Then my dog is where my feet normally are and I need to curl up to reduce the overall length I'm taking up on the couch. Then my father comes over and starts fussing with a blind on an adjacent window. He feels it's in the wrong position and I just want him to leave it alone.

The precise sequence here is foggy. I think the scene starts fading and I realize I'm dreaming. I try to step into the fading scene and it continues to become unstable and I wake. Upon waking though - I don't have the fully grounded feeling I normally have when in the physical. I get the sense it was a FA and get off the couch. The VCR clock is blanked out giving me that confirmation. Dreaming.

I head over to the counter top and grab the magic wand I have left out. I pass by the stairway and listen for any "activity". This was somewhat half-hearted as I figured I would take a break from that goal. I hear nothing. I continue to the door and leave the house. I figure I'll fly to the lake and try to walk on water, or perhaps conjure my friend S who I spoke with a few days back. I run a few feet with the intent to leap in the air but don't have the normal light sensation which helps me fly. I don't bother leaping and keep walking. The sun is just coming up and I notice a huge branch down in the road which leads me to the lake. I make my way to it. The scene is very stable and I question for a moment if I'm really dreaming? I think to myself that one of these days I really WILL embaress myself.

Before getting to the branch itself, I notice a small pond at a neighbors house which is not there IRL. There are small stones in the water and a tree growing out from the pond. A small animal scurries about, looks at me and hides behind the tree. The animal appears to be a cross between a squirrel and guinea pig and it has pointy ears. I pass by the branch and get caught in it. I realize I'm now wearing a backpack and a vine emanating from the tree has somehow become entangled with my backpack. Rather than do the obvious thing (remove the backpack) I try to untangle myself. I can't as it's impossibly made its way through the shoulder strap itself. I put my wand in my pocket and use two hands to twist the vine, weaken it and ultimately break it in half. Now I'm freed from the main branch, but there is still the matter of the other half of the vine which is still stuck with a smaller limb of the downed tree. I start unwinding the remaining vine piece from the backpack and almost succeed. But I lose the dream at this point.

Yeab Abulafia, I don't get the reference either? I found a nice write-up on Wikipedia. It was long winded and I started scanning some, but it wasn't obvious what you were referring too?

Your description of the floor in your dream reminded me of a scene in that book...that is why I wondered if you had read it.

 I think to myself that one of these days I really WILL embaress myself.


This really made me laugh because I was thinking this very same thing right before I read it.  Your dream is so subtle is lifelike, and the fact that you always seem to start them in your own house.  I recall that when you first started using your magic wand, it would not always cooperate and be in the spot where you left it.  Now, it seems like your furniture and your props faithfully mirror their physical counterparts.  You are really blurring the line between reality and dream.  Thanks for keeping and sharing such a great reckoning of your experiences. 

Just make sure to come back to us in the morning.

As it stands, I seem to be in no jeopardy of not making it out of a LD and back to reality in the morning. While I'm getting lucid on demand at this point, I'm having a lot of unnecessary challengs (tight underwear, trapped by a vine, etc ..).

It's clear where this is all coming from. My job has me dealing with problem, after problem, after problem.

I need to affirm before my LD attempts that my real world challenges will not bleed into my dreamspace. I seriously need to get this under better control.

Advanced Task Attempt

I'm dreaming about being on the couch trying to WILD. My wife and child are creating a commotion. My wife manages to get our little one upstairs. At about that time, I either briefly wake - or dream about a WILD transition ... I feel vibrations while I'm still listening to their voices trailing away. My pelvis rolls over one way and then returns to it's normal position. The vibrations stop and I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming though that whole sequence was odd.

I look around for a few clocks and they all give me reasonable times. I look into the front yard and the front light was left on - that's unusual. Then I realize it's just a passing car. I return to the kitchen and try to levitate. I seem to stay in the air a little, but again no absolute confirmation. I figure I'll go out and fly, that will confirm one way or another.

As I leave the house, I think to myself that maybe the advanced task would be interesting. I get on all fours with the intention of becoming a big cat of some kind, perhaps a panther. I start crawling around. I feel an odd metamorphasis. I take on the instincts of a panther ... the way I move, the way I growl, etc ... I start roaming the yard. Then it strikes me that my upper body has taken the shape of a panthers upper body but my lower half is frog like. My legs bow way out to the side like a frogs would. So I'm this weird human/panther/frog hybrid.  As quick as this realization begins it ends and my physical form and instincts are back to normal.

For some reason I still question whether this is a dream. I run with the intention of leaping and flying but I feel heavy and give up before I leap. Then it strikes me that it's light out now. OK - I can now say with 100% certainty I'm dreaming. It's a very pleasant fall scene with blue skies and falling leaves. I figure I'll head back to the house, find the wife and work on the orgasm task. I make it to the porch door which now looks like a door to a Nissan Sentra (better late then never for the goofy dream signs). I wake.

Chained WILDS, conjuring attempts, sex ...

Vibrations and WILD transition. I sanity check the clocks and they're disfunctional. I get excited - more conjuring attempts. I head to the stairwell hoping to hear K or T moaning. I hear a radio with some light jazz - that's a good sign. I head upstairs. My wife is in bed naked. I walk over and caress her a little. I ask her where T is? She says "again with T, you've got to be kidding me, give me a break". I don't go into a dissertation or anything, I simply explain she was into it last time and will be again. I call out for T. I hear her respond in a soft voice from downstairs. I head down believing she's in the first floor bathroom. I go in and she's not there. The toilet flushes by itself. Then it flushes again, and again and again ... Alright, I ignore the broken toilet and head upstairs. By the time I get back to my nakes wife, I wake.

I lie perfectly still and just relax. Within a minute vibrations return and I get kicked back into my dreamspace. I head to the stairwell but hear nothing. However, there's three pairs of ladies shoes scattered about the stairs. A good sign. I get to the bedroom and there's one person in bed. My wife I presume? I remove my pants and find I'm wearing underwear (IRL, I left off the underwear due to the tight briefs problem a few times back. That worked last time but my SC has adjusted) I hop in and realize she's still fully clothed. I get on top of her and we somehow lose stability and fall to the ground. I'm still on top of her and she still has clothes on, but it's now someone else. Short blond hair, kind of cute. I do the obvious thing. I begin pleasuring myself. I'm not aroused yet but it feels like I'm ready to come - an odd sensation. She's giving me a look like it's fine if I make a big mess all over her. I get myself aroused and get close  but wake before finishing.

Same thing. I lie perfectly still and wait. I easily enter my dreamspace once again. I try one more time. I head to the stairs and hear some light music again. I go up and my wife is naked in bed. I remove my pants and underwear (which again has crept into this dream though I'm not wearing any IRL). In my haste, I only pull these to my ankles and hop into bed. I turn my wife on her side and ready her a bit. I enter her from behind. She starts getting into it. This goes on for a minute or so. I think to myself that losing myself in the moment will probably help with dream stability (rather than worrying about waking). That seems to help. at some point I remember being in this position when I turned my wife into Sharon from BSG a month or two ago. OK - I can't resist. I imagine I'm with T since she and my wife are roughly the same size, have similar hair etc ... This works brilliantly. I'm giving it to T from behind now and I'm very close to climaxing. I wake.

I would think I should go outside and do some yardwork or something.

Affairs and threesomes don't work in practice, best I can tell.

I sometimes bump into our friend L at the gym while my wife is chatting with her. It's momentarily weird, but I get over it quick.

No supps last night, but I did drink too much from 5-7 pm. That probably caused a little REM rebound + I got to sleep many hours last night.

Bon Jovi, NT settings and looking for JM

I wake around 3:30 and affirm my intentions to become lucid the next time I dream. I am quite confident I'll succeed. Sure enough, I have a FA sometime later and look to the clock, it says 1:20. I'm almost certainly dreaming! I get up and it's very dark. I find the door but it's so narrow I can hardly make my way through. OK, definately dreaming. I pull my chest in and relax and squeeze through. I then realize I'm in my parents old NY house. I head down believing everyone else to be asleep. As I make my way to the back door, I notice a light on in the 1st floor bathroom. Before I leave the house, my dad exits the bathroom. I haven't seen him in a few months, but his presence in my dream can only complicate things so I'm not thrilled about it. He starts asking me how I feel and makes a reference to a lump I have under my arm. At some point, I get distracted by his conversation and  lose lucidity.

I then make my way into a room that is not really part of this house. There's an old fashioned blackboard and three people - Our director J from work, Jon Bon Jovi and a woman I don't recognize. I start explaining the frequency domain characteristics of my NT settings. I explain how the brainstate is up shifted by the carrier and how the decrease in duty cycle actually spreads the frequency energy over a wider band. Then Bon Jovi buts in and starts explaining exactly where the secondary spectral peaks would be. I playfully punch him a few times since this is my presentation. He gets upset and walks away. J leaves as well.

I ask the woman, "what, is it something I did"? I then realize once again that I'm dreaming. I ask her if she knows where JM is by any chance? She says no. I'm about to leave when I realize how cute this girl is. She's still sitting in a chair and I'm standing. I can't resist. I pull dwon my pants and walk over. At about this time, I hear someone come in from the back door and they're approaching this way. The woman starts servicing me. The 3rd person gets closer and closer and peaks in ... it's "long haired" Starbuck from BSG. Too many things going on here and I can't maintain stability - I wake. I then refelect on why it is that I can't keep my cock out of my DC's  :? It always shortens my lucids. (EDIT: Maybe I should make that my new signature)


Asking T is she knows where JM is?

I don't recall the preceding parts of the dream, but I find myself outside of a building looking at T (from the gym). She's dressed in more business oriented clothes. Her breasts look much fuller than IRL. I realize I'm dreaming. I walk over to her and ask if she knows where JM is? She says no. I'm about to walk away when I notice how nice she looks. I give her a brief kiss. She seems fine with it and we kiss more deeply while I fondle her left breast a little. We start making our way closer to the building so we're not out in the open space of the parking lot. I then ask if she has any idea who's buying our product line? She gives me a non-sense garbled answer. OK - T knows nothing, why would she?. We kiss a little more and then I wake.

G night. Not my best, but interesting ...

Lot's of Music, flying and searching for JM

I'm in my music room. There's loud rock music emanating from somewhere else in the house - the bedroom I think. There's nothing in that room that can play music so loud and I realize I must be dreaming. I try to proceed into the hall but get stuck by an invisible force. I try to relax and move but it's no use. I barely reach out to the wooden hand rail around the stairwell and try to pull myself out of the room. I pull as hard as I can but fail. I wake (FA).

I realize I'm not grounded in the physical. I've become much more aware of that subtle feeling. I get up and notice the VCR clock blanked out. My eye sight is a little fogged over. I make my way to the porch door hoping to find JM waiting for me on the porch. I open the door and my dog follows. My eyesight gets worse and I have to feel around for the chairs hoping to find a woman in one of them, however they are both empty. I exit the porch and go out to fly. Flying usually improves my eyesight.

I leap in the air and start flapping. It's still dark out and my eyes quickly improve. I start heading south east. I get decent altitude and continue to flap at a steady pace. It's a very blissful flight. I start to hear music that reminds me of one of my meditation CD's. The music makes the flight that much more pleasant. After flying for a few minutes I decide to land and see if I can conjure JM.

I start to descend. As I do I hear more music. Maybe because I'm coming in pretty quick and a crash is possible? But I start to hear White Zombies "More human than human". Rather than let this get me too pumped, I relax and have a nice light landing. I see a small convenience store and an adjacent house. I walk over to the house and knock on the door. For some reason I now have winter clothes on and I decide to remove my gloves but they're stuck. It's a very ornate wood door. There's no bell so I knock. I wait for a minute but no one responds. I see some fogged out small windows in what must be the bedroom and a red light is on in that room. I figure something interesting is going on but don't think to fly up there. Instead I try the convenience store.

I enter the store. It turns out it's not a convenience store at all. There are lots of desks and stacks of paper like it's an accounting office. It's very dingy. One lone worker notices me but carries on with his business for a moment. I think to myself that he won't know where JM is so what's the point. I'll have to make up a story about being lost or something. He then acknwledges me and asks what he can do for me? Then he says "You are Mr K****, aren't you?"  I'm surprised he knows me. I say "yes, I am". "There's some information you can help me with, though I'm not sure what I can give you in retrun?". I'm about to explain that the info I need are the whereabouts of JM. I realize my mouth is very dry and it becomes hard to talk. I wake (my nose is a little stuffy and my mouth was wide open and dry IRL).


Cumbersome blanket

It's a little cool and I decide to put a blanket on. Sometimes I have trouble getting these off when I WILD. Sure enough, in a few minutes my vibrations kick in and I transition to my dreamspace/dreamcouch. During the transition I heard an old Who song coming from the kitchen - lots of music today? When I stabilize in my dreamspace I try to toss the blanket off of me but it's stuck at my feet. OK, I need to just take my time. I hop off the couch and try to decouple it from my feet. I eventually get my right foot out but can't get my left out to save my life. At one point I lunge in the opposite direction and force a scene change.

I'm now free of the blanket and I'm in the foyer of my parents old NY house. Everything seems wonderfully real. I just stop and take in the scene. The grandfather clock has been moved to the dining room. Everything else is the same. I ponder what I should do. Well, no reason I can't find JM in NY - why not? I'll get up and see where this leads. I head to the kitchen but lose stability of the dream. I wake.


Don't rush me at the sink ....

I'm in a public restroom waiting to wash up at a row of sinks. The guy in front seems done but he's left several small bottles of soap/shampoo on the counter. I realize he musty be done so I go in and wash my face. The guy behind me must have gotton impetuous and he tries to creep in and use the sink simultaneoulsy. I block it off to defend my sink. He then gives me a nuggy (sp?) from behind. I get very pissed. I turn around and it's an Indian guy who reminds me of someone at work. I realize I'm dreaming. What to do with this rude guy? Maybe it's the conversation I had about Hannibal yesterday? I walk over and take a bite out of his nose. I start chewing. It's rather tastless and very chewy. Maybe I got too much cartiledge? Hmmm, that's an odd thing to do ... I start to feel a little bad about it, afterall I was lucid.  I wake.

It sucks to get old(er). I'm going to include my last lucid in it's entirety. Not because I'm showing off or trying to turn this into penthouse letters. But rather to express my frustration :mad: At 40 my libido and virility are just fine. But man does it take a while to get off sometimes. This problem is in my dreams as well, which makes sense I guess. You can stop reading if you find intense sex dreams offensive.


Work/porn fragment

I'm at work. A TV and DVD player is setup in someones cube. One of my female coworkers stops and takes a look. We'll call her X. One of my subordinates and I walk past. He doesn't care and goes about his business. I take some interest. X however is very interested, fast forwarding to get to the "good parts".


Lost WILD

I have extended vibrations. I relax, focus on my 3rd eye area and transition. I get up and feel like I'm definately dreaming since I feel quite light. I do a double check and look at the VCR which says 5:07. That time is reasonable which makes me second guess things.  I wake.


Trying to find X in bed

Again, extended vibrations and a transition. I'm sure I'm dreaming and head upstairs. I try to see if I can find X naked in bed. I know this is inappropriate but since she made her way into my non-lucid earlier, perhaps my subconscious is telling me something. I make my way upstairs a little excited. I get to the bedroom and the light is on. My wife is in bed folding laundry. She seems uninterested in me. I remove my pants and underwear and hop in and straddle her  but wake.

@DN

RL stimulation before LDing. You mean have an O in RL before hand. To be honest, sometimes I resist the temptation figuring that it would interfear with drive or ability to get off in the LD itself. I would help me get back to sleep though  ;)

@MB

Yeah, I guess it's all in the mind. I think it's an expectation problem. I guess the best thing to do is try to decouple my real world and lucid dream world and not assume that a RL phenomenon should not manifest itself the same way in a LD.

The other alternative which would work ... but it might not be worth it? Abstain for a few days (maybe 3-4, if that's even theoretically possible) and try to have a sexual LD. I suspect that the body and mind would be more desperate to achieve that state and it would be easier. Of course your giving up RL experience at that point. Not sure if it woud be worth it?

IRL, I did a 45 min WBTB, put on the NT and dozed for a few minutes. When I woke, 34 minutes had transpired with the NT and I removed it.


Lame attempt to find a virgin

I find myself in my garage listing to some guy talk about one of our products at work. He mentions that it's having some problems, but that another vendor put their equipment in and had the same issues. He thinks it's not a product issue but more an environment problem. I leave the garage and start programming my NT. There's a guy on a chair about 15 feet away and he asks what I'm doing. I put the NT down and walk over to him. I explain that I use it to coax the brain into a state conducive to LDing. I mention that I can't share the details, but think such a device could be made much cheaper if it only did the settings I use for lucid dream applications. He only seems moderately interested, and I get self conscious about the possibility that he considers me a little flaky.

I go back to my NT. A small boy of about 5 walks over and says "hi daddy, mom is looking for you". I realize I'm dreaming. At about this time, my wife comes out the front door and is heading this way. I say to the kid "go tell mommy that she needs to find a virgin for me". He runs away but I'm not convinced he understands the message. I decide to go explore the neighborhood some. I start walking away from the house and realize my pants are falling down and it's quite uncomfortable. I try to pull them up and wonder if my RL pants are getting a little pulled down based on my sleep position. I get concerned that the physical sensation won't stop in that case. I wake (FA). I have the NT on and look at the time. 56 minutes left means I've been wearing it for 64 minutes. I role over and have some more non-lucid dreams. I wake for real and realize I missed the FA.


Bad CEO + Does she really want it or not?

I'm at a marketing presentation for the new product. I am watching a video ad for the new product and it's less than impressive. The marketting woman claims that it will resonate with customers because the star in the video is older just like our customers. The firm who made the video also has a data base for potential customers to search and find our stuff. It seems like wasted effort to me.

Then a few people start discussing our product melt down in Kentucky. Apparently, the product failed and it somehow had an impact on the space program. This became very high profile and quite embarassing. I'm asked what I think about this. I want to tell them it's inevitable because our India team which supports that product is incompetent. I pull back on what I want to say and simply offer that I only care about our new product which roles up to my team.

A short while later I bump into the CEO. He scolds me for bad mouthing the product and fires me. I say "whoa ... I did no such thing. I simply said I care about the new product." He doesn't care and walks away telling me the vote is on and that the two liberals are not invited (not sure who the 2nd guy is? - also the first time I've ever been called liberal?). Our CEO walks into a lecture room with the stage and whiteboard at the bottom of the room and rows of seats that get higher and higher as they get further from the stage. I walk in a minute later and see our CEO. I realize I'm dreaming. I leap and fly superman style toward him and grab him by the neck. I pull him up into the air and twist his neck around more and more violently trying to hear a "snap". I only hear a little grinding but it's clear he's dead. I drop him and fall to the floor. No one seems to care. I head outside.

I'm now walking in a street full of many people. An attractive young woman walks by. I intercept her and give her a kiss. I suggest that we have sex. She seems a little hesitent. I get the sense she really wants it but is playing hard to get. I walk her over to the grass at the side of the road and help her out of her pants and panties. She's still resisitng but I'm convinced she really wants it and it's her fantasy to say no but be taken in front of everyone. Two more guys walk over and I'm concerned they won't get it and interveen. They just watch. I ask one to hold her arms. I start playing with her manually. I start to question whether she really wants it ot not. She seems to genuinely not be into it at this point. So the situation turns from something fantasy oriented to something just plain weird/wrong. I think the presence of the other guys is not helping either. I tell her I'm done, get up and carry on. The other guys seem to want to continue with her. I start walking away but wake.

Model 6 - but not what you're thinking ...

I'm having a conversation with a model 6 from BSG. It centers on the fact that "they" didn't use the beat up base station to travel were they needed to get but found an abandoned station which was in good mechanical shape. I have a pillow in my hand and I start walking away.

I start flipping the pillow in the air like a frisbee, run and catch it. I do this a few times making forward progress along a street near my house. After a few tosses I drop the pillow on the ground and start kicking it along the street like a soccer ball. It's a pleasant fall scene. There are leaves in the street and it's sunny. It's a nice balmy 65 F or so and there's a slight breeze. I reflect on what I'm doing and say to myself "hey, I'll bet I'm dreaming". For confirmation I jump in the air and start flapping.

I start to gaiin altitude which confirms I'm dreaming. The flight itself was OK. I was flying past some trees, did a few sumbersaults etc ... I couldn't get any really good momentum going so I landed. I just waked along the street marvelling at how real everything seemed. I never get bored with that level of observation. I start to consider my options. I see a neighbors house and get the urge to jump up and onto the roof. I take a running leap and jump forward and higher than the house itsef, then control a nice soft landing. My first thought is to jump from house to house. The roof is small though and doesn't allow for a good running start to the next house. I'm not convinced I can do it without the running part? Instead, I take in the scene for a bit.

I then notice that there's not a single person around. This is preferable to me since I'm not in the mood for any weird DC interaction. I leap down onto a car and it makes a slight crunching sound when I hit the roof. I jump from car to car. A car with a person drives by. The driver sees me but quickly looks away. When I'm done leaping from car to car I resume my walk along the street. Again, I just take in the wonderful simulation. I walk for another minute or so and then wake.

I then notice that there's not a single person around. This is preferable to me since I'm not in the mood for any weird DC interaction. I leap down onto a car and it makes a slight crunching sound when I hit the roof.

Dr. T, I don't ever recall having a lucid dream where there weren't any DCs around.  :P

I love how you said that the car's roof made a slight crunching sound.. I could actually hear that sound in my head when I read that.  :content:

Actually, I usually have to search out DC's - especially when I WILD since those typically start on my dream couch.

Yeah, I like the way expectations project into your lucids, like the crunching roof sound.

Hang in there. There are a lot of very experienced LDers on this site. Just keep reading, trying and learning. You'll get there. And BTW, having sacrificed for my company for 11 years give or take, if the CEO fires me on bad info he somewhat deserves what he got  ;)

As I get better at LDing in general and more in touch with my dream world, I am finding that I have a lot of low level lucid dreams which I barely remember when I wake. They tend to be in the middle of the night after 3-5 hours of sleep. It's not the same as doing a full blown WBTB, repeating intentions etc ... They are fleeting experiences and it's usually hard to put the pieces together so I rarely document these. Last nights dream was a little easier to remember and personally meaningful ...

I'm in a large room devoid of furniture. It has very nice hardwood floors. I am having a conversation with my deceased grandmother. She passed away in 1982 if I recall. I don't remember the precise details of the conversation but at some point it strikes me that I'm dreaming. Once lucid in this odd situation, I try to think about what I should do or ask. I look over to my grandmother again and she looks different. Her appearance is a combination of what she looked like in her seventies (my last recollection)  and what my mother in law looks like now. It's a strange melding of people. I realize it still represents my grandmother though.

I ask her the obvious questions .... Who are you with now?  Can you tell me about what's going to happen to me?  Various paranormal themes.  Since becoming lucid however, she has a very lifeless look on her face. She looks more like a wax figure, frozen and rather expressionless. It doesn't dawn on me that I should try to re-animate her. Instead, I start looking around the room. Since it's an otherwise boring environment, I decide to try to change my scene. Rather than spin around, I decide to run around the room. I do this several times over, get dizzy and fall to the floor. I somewhat enjoy the dizzy feeling and liken it to the feeling I have when I'm just about to doze off and I'm trying to WILD. My overall control of this is poor however, and I lose my awareness.

Last night was a bit odd. I learned that BW entrainment + my usual G/C dose seems to be too much. I got into a vibrational state at least 8-10 times but for the most part could not ease into the dream state from there. I did twice but was further hampered by sleep paralysis or a tangled up blanket  :mad:

I knew that the entrainment and supps would slowely wear off though and I tried to remain patient, dozing once or twice wo/ lucids. Then I had a few:


Finally, lucid ... hurry up!

I finally have a wave of vibrations which I negotiate correctly. Based on my physical sense, I know I'm dreaming. My mind throws up another hurdle though. My dog is lying across my left foot. With my right foot I move her up and scoot under and free myself. I get up but the dream is very unstable. I franticly look for stuff to touch to stabilize things. The kitchen counter is available and I concentrate on those tactile senses and the dream stablizes nicely. My primary task was to see if my wife had any female company in bed  :angel:. As before, I walk to the stairwell and simply listen. She's up and walking about. It sounds like she is alone. I wonder if it's even worth going upstairs - perhaps I should fly? Well, I'm here so I head up to the bedroom. When I get in the MBR however, she isn't there? I start looking around  but wake.

Flying through a forest and over a lake

I am in the family room at a large conference table. I find myself in a slightly confused state. I look up to a clock on the mantle (not there IRL) and it says 3:28. I'm thrilled to see this because I have another 2.5 hours of lucid dream attempts left. Then it hits me. Last I looked at a clock it was 5:28. Dreaming. I double check the VCR clock just in case and it's fogged out. Again, I head to the stairs to listen for any activity. Nothing but some snoring. OK, time to head outside. I figured I would head to the lake and try to turn it into my target beach location in NY.

I head outside. It's dark and balmy out. No point in walking. I run and leap in the air. Flying is something I'm finally getting half way good at. I have a wonderfully acrobatic flight through the neighborhood. Lots of swooping up and down, twists in the air, good velocity, etc ... As I approach the wooded area before the lake it looks thicker than IRL. I'm approaching at a high rate of speed wondering how I'm going to negotiate the sharp turns and spaces through the trees. It's just like "Return of the Jedi" when Luke is on the speeders being chased by the stormtroopers. I'm wipping through the trees and at one point I'm on a collision coarse. I can't make a correction and fly right through the tree (it just sort of dematerializes). I'm now over the water. The lake is much larger than expected. The water is crystal clear and I can see several fallen trees through the water. I have an awesome flight across the lake hovering inches from the water. Reflecting on it now, perhaps my mind was pulling from some old waterskiing experiences? It's an exhililerating experience but I probably got over-excited. I wake feeling very satisfied.

I swear it felt like I was whipping through the trees with you as I read this.. I actually felt my body internally swaying from side to side!  That was cool how the tree "got out of your way". :D

Finding King Tut

I'm at an archeological dig in Eqypt, deep in a cavern. We have found an item of singificance. The size and shape suggest it's a coffin but it's covered in mud. The coffin itself is standing up and it's tucked into a cutout in the wall of the cave. No one wants to disturb the coffin too much for fear of damaging it. It's late in the day, and my fellow researchers call it a day. I guess they figure it will make more sense to bring in some scanning equipement tomorrow.

I stay behind and take the uncharacteristic approach of going the unconservative route. with everyone gone, I grab a wet towel and start wiping away the encrusted mud. It comes off quite easily. It turns out that the mud was on top a layer of glass. Behind the layer of glass is King Tut's sarcaphagus (sp?). I stop and pause at the detail and stunning beauty of this piece of art and history. Then it dawns on me. I just uncovered Tut's tomb, I feel rather disoriented and can't figure out how I got here. Dreaming. At this point, it's unclear what my next move should be. I am undecided between exploring the coffin or looking around foro other treasures? Getting stuck for the next thing to do doesn't help  - I wake.

Obviously - when I reflect on this in bed the next logical move was to break the glass and find the mummy. Perhaps re-animite him? Major missed opportunity!

I had lucid dreaming very much on my mind. It was a G/C evening. I also wanted to visit the Mortal Mist Tree. I called a friend of mine S, who has a passing interest in LDing. I suggested I find the tree and expected him to be there. I told him to bring some decent pot (not that we ever did that when we were kids  ;) ) He liked my idea and wished me well - asking that I call him if I succeed.


REM Re-entry Success

I wake from a non-lucid dream and identify that transition immediately. I lie perfectly still. I am hoping to fool my mind into going directly into REM upon going back to sleep. Within about 1 minute I get a modest wave of head and neck vibrations. They subside and I feel like I have transitioned. I get up from my bed. It's very dark. I enter the hall and feel around for the hand rail. I make my way downstairs. I notice but don't completely consider the fact that the hand rail is round with abruptly cut ends and the stairs turn right rather than left. When I make it to the bottom of the stairs I'm in my parents old house in NY. I look out a window and notice there are many leaves down and they're being blown around by a strong wind. I lose lucidity at this point having been sucked into this new fantasy. I get the feeling that the house is going to be threatened by someone or something. I wake.


Finding the MM Tree, Attempt 1.

I have a whole bunch of missed WILDS. Vibrations but no transitions. My G/C regiment isn't giving me quite the same response anymore? Eventually I have a wave and feel like I've transitioned. I manage to deal with the initial sleep paralysis like sensation and get off the couch. I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming but check the VCR clock anyway. It's perfectly clear and says 6:10. Hmmm, maybe I'm not dreaming. I double check vs. the microwave clock. It says 5:49. OK, that's too big a gap. I think to myself I should check a watch. I consider putting on the light and finding a watch but decide it's overkill, I'm clearly dreaming. I go back to the kitchen for my magic wand and proceed to the front door.

My dog follows me and I figure "what the hell" she can roam around too if she wants. I head to the street and start walking. A 90's style mustang comes down the road. I don't want to seem out of place and get noticed so I simply start jogging. The people in the car ignore me and I continue. I start yelling out S, T are you guys around? I barely hear a response. I continue down the road admiring the details of the dream trees and their turning leaves. I yell out again and get a faint response. Again I yell and get another faint response which confirms the direction. It's definately S, I can make that much out. I'm going the wrong way though. He sounds to be about 200 yards S/SE from my house, not N of the house which is where I am.

I start walking trying to imagine precisely where he must be. The air becomes a little thick and I decide to walk/crawl. This goes on for 100 feet or so before  I wake.


That's progress though. At least I know the general direction of the MM tree in my dreamspace - relative to my house. This will only take another dream or two to succeed  :D

: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical September 24, 2008, 06:27:17 AM
I had done some WBTB and BW entrainment. I got comfortable on the couch fully expecting to LD. I was also mindful of any subtle shifts into my dreamspace. For example, I've noticed that sometimes auditory hallucinations creep in which seems to mean I've WILDed, though no obvious transition has taken place.


Was that A, or my brother B?

I'm standing at the kitchen sink late at night. Only a nightlight is on. I hear the sound of a young boy crying behind me. Instantly I realize there are no small boys in the house and I'm dreaming. I turn around and he sees me. He's about the size of my little girl who turns 4 in November. He runs away and behind the kitchen table. I'm intrigued by this DC so I figure I'll investigate. I go around the table and sort of flush him out from the other side. I take a good look at him. It's dark, but I can make out enough detail to realize that this DC is my brother B when he was about 3 or 4.

He seems very shy and a little scared. I kneel down and hold out my hand in a gesture which is meant to comfort him. He gives me the classic 3 year old "I don't want to" expression - squints his eyes and turns his head away.  I say "come on B, you want to go outside with me? Would you like to fly?". Again, I don't get a positive response. I tell him "suit it yourself, I'm going out to fly now". I realize the dream is slightly unstable but I'm prety confident things will improve. I walk over to the kitchen counter and look for my wand. For the first time ever, it's not where I left it when I was awake???  I reach over and successfully grab it from the anticipated location. It's like it was first invisible, but visually appeared when I reach for it. I start to head to the back door to fly to the MM tree having determined the rough location of it in my last lucid. I consider the whole weird invisible wand sequence for a moment and it somewhat throws me off. I wake.

I notice that you mention your "wand" in your lucids.  Have you always used a wand and do you now just instinctively go to get it?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical September 24, 2008, 11:36:15 AM
Hi clairity:

Yes, my brother occasionally makes his way into my dreams, usually as a child for some reason. The last time he entered one of my lucids as an adult, he was doing a slow morbid sort of walk and was carrying a skull in both hands  O_O

My wand is a cool conceptual aid I like to leverage. I always put it out on the kitchen counter before a LD attempt. If I WILD or DILD and start my lucid in my house, my first step is usually to grab my wand. I get better flying results with it. I need to figure out how to make it shoot lightening bolts or something  :D

It's all about expectation. I expect to find it on the counter and it's always there.

Oh, good question.

It's one I had custom made by an artist who specializes in several querky areas, including wand making. So it's one of a kind. Did you know you can pay $700.00 for a magic wand? Mine wasn't nearly that expensive. I'll have to take a digital photo one day and upload it here.

Check out www.whirlwood.com

If you find the link on his private collection, my wand has the bullfrog shape (exactly) but a totally different color scheme (purples with some green and red highlights).

Goal: Find my friend S at the MM tree.

Spotting the MM tree, still no S:

I'm in the den looking at a number of large bugs crawling on the wall. Several centipedes, and a few bugs I can't identify. I walk over and they all run to the window and crawl under the gap in the wood between the window and window frame. It's dark outside, but I hear someone using a weedwacker. It's very loud. None of my neighbors are so motivated to weed wack at 12:00 in the evening. I realize I'm dreaming. I head to the front door to see who it is and to find the MM tree. The dream becomes a little uncohesive. I have trouble seeing and feel my way to the front door. I open the door and feel physically stuck. I hear my water sprinkler on the side of the house and this distracts me from my dream cohesion challenges. I get better control and proceed through the front door. It's dark out and a little foggy. The sprinkler is making sound but no water is coming out? I don't see anyone weed wacking and proceed to the side of the house to enter the back yard. Last I yelled for S, he was about 200 yards behind my house, hopefully at the MM tree. I run and jump in the air and start to fly. The superman style flying is only going OK, so I resort to my more reliable flapping and backstroke style flying. This works fine. But again the dream starts to fade. I wake (FA).

I'm again lying on the couch and notice a man outside the east window. He is working on my neighbors house at night. I can barely make out the scene. I peak out the window and notice him working on a wire dangling from their roof. I realize this is unreasonable and must still be dreaming. I walk to the kitchen to check the time which in fact is fogged out on the microwave display. I open the back door and head to the porch. My dog follows. I tell her to stay in a loud voice, just in case I'm not dreaming, and also to alert the DC next door of my presence (I don't want to deal with him, he's not part of the plan). I enter the back yard and run south looking at the tree line. With the perspective of the trees as a target I leap up and quickly gain altitude. As I gain altitude the scene changes to daylight. I am now flying superman style across the yard and toward my expected location of the MM tree and my friend S.

I fly into the yard of the house behind us. I change my flight more to hover mode. I'm hovering over a summer party of some kind. There are about 20-30 people there. I start yelling "S, are you here? S, where are you?". I can't see him. Interestingly, very few DC's take notice even though I'm yelling at the top of my lungs. I can't find S so my next instinct is to find a cute DC. Then I question whether I should try to conjure Sarah Palin  ;) ( OK, which one of you guys is not at least a little hot for Sarah?). Then I realize that while S doesn't seem to be here, that I had the other important goal of finding the MM tree. OK, Sarah can wait. I start looking east which is where I thought it was based on my lucid from a few days ago.

I start looking for a large or otherwise special tree. I don't have to look very long. About 300 feet away is an enormous tree. It has a thick base, perhaps 7-8 feet wide. It's about 40-50 feet high and just as wide. The branch pattern reminds me of a silver maple, so there are more branches than the graphic on the front page and the branches are very dense. Normally, the leaf cover would obscure any ability to see past the foliage. In this case, it's obviously fall and most of the leaves have fallen (perhaps 80%). The remaining leaves are a brilliant yellow. Now ... the most unique feature. It's rotating on it's base. The rotation is counter clockwise. The speed is such that it does one rotation about every 20 seconds. So given the size of the tree, it's whipping around pretty quick. I'm completely mesmerized by this scene. I watch the tree rotate perhaps twice, then wake.

I had finished up some WBTB and BW entrainment and fell asleep in the final 20 minutes of the entrainment part. I had a brief dream about storming a room with a friend of mine and beating up two equally large guys who where in the room. It was actually a pretty brutal beating. I'm not sure where that came from per say?


Nice try dream cops

I am sitting in a bar with my wife. Two cops walk in and sit next to us. They put on their best authoritative look and explain that they need to talk to me about the fight I was in earlier today. I stop for a moment and say "wait, that fight was only a dream". Then it hits me and I blurt out "you know what, you two are dreams as well, fuck you both". I get up and leave. I head outside hoping they don't follow with guns drawn or anything. I have no idea where I am when I reach the parking lot so I jump in the air and start flapping. I get decent altitude but my eye sight gets fogged out. The flight feels pleasant, with the nice sensations of flying and a cool breeze, but I can't see. I'm on my back doing a backstroke through the air and decide to imagine my NY target beach under me. I decide to flip, open my eyes abruptly and try to summon that scene. I implement that plan but upon opening my eyes I wake (FA).

I am face down on a bed or couch. I appear to be in my very first bedroom in a house we lived in in the 70's. I get up and upon further inspection, the room is actually my present day den. That's a little disappointing. I'm clearly still dreaming though and easily catch the FA due to my body position being 180 degrees incorrect when I woke. I head to the kitchen. The clock is too early and the nite-light has malfunctioned. I decide to try to conjure our hot friend L from the gym. I head to the stairwell hoping to hear my wife and L getting it on. Her office which is right next to the stairewell is emanating music which is distracting. I mentally will it to stop and it does. I listen. Nothing but snoring. I give up and go to my secondary task.

I open the door, exit and consider if I should close it (you know, just in case I goofed and I'm really awake). I close it and head to the back yard. A car pulls up next door. Several cars actually. Out come 7-10 cute high school age girls. They are dressed somewhat business like with nice skirts and blouses. They head my way and take notice of some vines next to the garage. At about this time, I realize I'm wearing my CD player belt I use at the gym. I feels like it's full of lead and it pulls me down to the ground. I remove it and one girl walks over to me. She's very pretty and I wave her over to come closer. She has braces. I say something flirty which I don't remember now and she responds positively. For some reason though I'm not into the scene. Maybe because she's young, maybe because her friends would be watching? I get up and continue to the backyard to visit S at the MM tree. I wake.

I had time and need to get some decent sleep last night. I decided to try something less intrusive to my sleep. I woke after 5 hours and took 1 CaleaZ extract cap. Then another after 7 hrs. Rose after 9 hours having had tons of vivid and interesting dreams. A few obvious missed dream signs. One low level lucid at the very end.

Oz, and an unwanted surprise

I'm driving in a car along a local road listenign to a Woody Allen interview on the radio. It's raining and the roads are slick. I can't decide whether I want to spped up and pass the car in front of me or slow down as get behind and the lanes converge to one. I speed up and almost get in an accident with a car ahead of us that was stopped for a turn. I continue to drive and drive over a bridge with an adjacent house that butts up to  a huge waterwheel. I somehow leave the car and project in the air and across the street. I find myself swinging on a rope attached to a pair of high trees and somehow swing to the very top of one of them.

The trees are narrow and very close together, perhaps 3 feet apart. I look at what used to be a rope and it's now a thick vine. I start climbing down not using my feet at all but rather my hands on the branches of the trees to the left and right of me. I realize that I'm doing this effortlessly and it strikes me that I'm dreaming. I get to the ground and the scene which had been very rustic takes on a completely different look. Everything is very pastel in color and the scene looks like something out of the Wizard of Oz. I'm lucid, but not thinking 100% at this point and somehow the scene changes to the inside of a mansion with a very busy hall and room layout and again very pastel color choices.

I start walking around anxious to see what I'll find. I walk through a few rooms. They tend to interconnect to each other rather than a hallway. I finally find a much larger room. I figure I'll look around for an attractive girl. I continue through this large room and out of the corner of my eyes are two naked people. I head that way. The dream is nice and stable and I'm looking forward to some lucid sex. I get there and have a bad surprise. It's two guys. One is sitting on the couch, the other is kneeling on the floor servicing the him. :mad: You've got to be kidding me sub-conscious - that's all you have for me right now? I get pissed and move on. I wander for another minute before I'm awoken by my wifes stirring in bed.

G/C night and another attempt to conjure my childhood friend S.

Goals:

1) Conjure S
2) Note what he's wearing and report back to S
3) Ask him for a decent name for my product idea
4) Have some good stoned conversation

Successfully conjuring S

I have a really hard time getting back to sleep. After 2.5 hours I have a bried non-lucid, wake and then have several WILD opportunities. One wave of vibrations leads me to my dreamspace but more or less paralized. I quickly wake.

The next wave of vibrations is moderate in intensity and very long, maybe 25-30 seconds. When it stops I'm fairly sure I have transitioned. I get up and check the clock which is fuzzy. I head to the kitchen only to get caught up in the blanket I left on the floor. I trip over it and realized it has snagged me again! Even when I remove this thing prior to sleep it seems to get in my way. I am determined however not to let this hinder me. I lift my right foot out of it, pull the blanket out from under my left foot, roll it up into a ball and throw it across the room.

Even though I beat my first challenge, I realize I'm now very sluggish and have trouble getting to the kitchen to retrieve my wand. I pull my self in part using my hands and reach it. I use the ridges on the wand to introduce some specific tactile sensation. This seems to stabililze the dream and allows me to proceed. I head out the back door onto the porch. It's very dark and I can hardly see anything. I continue to rub the ridges on the wand to strengthen my presence in the dream. I leave the porch hoping to find S sitting at the table on the patio. No such luck. I start to head into the back yard. I decide not to yell for S while just outside the house for fear I would wake my "dream wife" who would then ask "what the hell are you doing out there".

I walk about 50 feet and start yelling for S. My eyes have adjusted and I can see reasonably well at this point though it's still nighttime. "S, where are you, I know you're back here!". After 3-4 such attempts I hear him respond from my neighbors yard to the east. "Dude, hold on just a second, how do I get to you?". I tell him to just hop the fence and find a hole through the trees and bushes. Sure enough, in about 10 seconds I spot him heading this way.  S is walking due west and rather than walk straight to me he continues to walk west until he aligns with my position then due south to greet me (kind of like walking along the side and base of a triangle rather than its hypotenuse (sp?) ). He holds out his hand and we shake.

His appearance is unexpected considering that IRL he rejoined the army about 4 months ago. His hair is long on top, he has a small loop earing in his left ear. He is wearing jeans and a short tan T-shirt. He looks to be in good shape, thinner than I remember when I last saw him. I notice that a table with umbrella and two chairs has conveniently appeared. We start walking over. I tap him on his arm and say "wait, I need to ask you what to call it". He says "oh, your dream thing? Uh ... 3 .... D?" I think to myself 3-D, that's a sucky name. We walk over to the table  but I wake at this point.

NOTE: Get stoned first, ask for name ideas second

I called my friend S to tell him I successfully conjured him and told him he wanted to call the invention "3-D". He pondered this and asked me not to think of it so literally. He suggested it would be an acronym or concept and to conjure him again and ask him for clairity.

No need. Sitting in my bathtub w/ a bad fever going on and feeling a little loopy, it hit me:


DrTechnical's Lucid Dreamscapes

Lucid Dreamscapes by DrTechnical


Probably the latter.


This means I can forgoe conjuring S again and work on Angelina Jolie  ;)


: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical October 02, 2008, 07:58:47 AM
It was an odd night, having slept 2.5 hours, then up for another two with fever and uh ... digestive issues. I dozed watching TV and woke from a nearly lucid dream. I repositioned and figured maybe I could WILD given my neurotransmitter balance was probably a little wacked.


Conjuring, was that Angelina Jolie?

I relax and use my WILD method I discuss under "Lucid Techniques" on MM. I feel very subtle vibrations begin. They gradually become more and more intense until they are at a nice strong and steady pace. When they finish, I feel I've transitioned. I check the clock which is too early by 15 minutes or so. Dreaming. Everything is nice and stable for a WILD. I open the door and head to the porch, telling my dog not to follow. I imagine nice balmy air hitting me instead of the 50 degrees F which it probably is IRL. I walk out to the area where I conjured S previously. I start yelling, "Hey Angelina, you F'in little hottie, where are you". I somehow believe she'll be flattered by calling for her in this way. I yell once or twice more and look over to where S appeared a few days back. Sure enough, out from the bushes comes a figure. Yes, success! She starts walking over.

I pull down my sweat pants just enough. I look over to her while she's approaching. It's not Angelina Jolie, but some other woman who is very attractive. She seems vaguely familiar though I can't place her. She walks up to me and without saying a word, gets on her knees and starts servicing me. This lasts for about 10 seconds, but I seem to be out of lucid sex practice. I wake.


Dream re-entry 1

I lie perfectly still upon waking and wait for vibrations to return. They quickly do. I get up and head to the place I keep my wand. It helped with stability last time. I retrieve it but I'm distracted by a feeling of nasal drip and mucussy slimy crap lining my mouth. I remove a big wad of slimy crap with one hand and throw it in the sink. This virus sucks. I'm about to drink a little water to be more comfortable, when the dream weakens. I drop my wand and leave it next to the sink. I wake.


Dream re-entry 2

Same thing. Lie still and wait for vibrations to return. They do and I get up. Again, the dreamscape is nice and stable. I sanity check the clocks which are messed up and head to the kitchen sink which is where I last left my wand in the previous dream. I go out looking for Angelina (or for that matter, the other DC from earlier). I go fairly deep in my backyard and notice our neighbor B next door. I hear some pleasant music playing. I don't get along with B so well and I briefly consider flying into his yard and kicking his ass. I resisit the temptation though since dream violence is something I'm not really into. I look over to the place where S and the other DC appeared. I assume someone else will now appear as well. Sure enough, a figure starts walking out from the bushes. This is too easy! But I get overexcited  and wake.


NOTE: It's really nice that I've found a new space/time portal to pull people from. How convenient.

Well, if I can pull people from the space/time portal in my backyard, the obvious next step is to go into it myself ...


Entering the portal in my yard

I took some G at 3:00 but was sleepy enough to doze a little and woke around 4:30. I rolled over and had a non-lucid dream. Upon exit from that dream I lied still hoping to transition back to my dreamspace. Sure enough, I felt strong vibrations within seconds. I feel my astral body rotating left and then right with some cool shimmery light HI. When it stops I'm sure I'm dreaming. I get up easily enough and head to the kitchen for my wand. I look at the microwave clock which is red in color and says 9:46, further confirmation. I head to the porch door imagining nice warm weather and open the door. It's a pleasant summer evening of about 75 degrees (rather then the RL case of rainy and about 45 now). I plan to use my wand both as a tool to help fabricate the desired dreamscape on the other side of the portal and use the ridges on it for tacticle sensation to keep the dream stable - which appears to be a nice technique for me. I realize I'm wearing shorts and a T-shirt and a winter hat. I have a key and ID card on me which I decide to tuck into the fold of the hat.

I walk through the yard on route to the portal. I somehow feel compelled to get on my hands and knees and sneak up on it. The grass is wet with dew and a little on the long side. It feels so real. There's lot's of bird activity. I realize the sun is just starting to break and it's no longer completely dark, more like an early dawn scene. I get to the portal hoping it leads to a specific beach in New York. I get close. As I approach, I realize the portal leads to a scene which is daylight, and the scene is about 20-30 feet beneath ground level on  my side of the portal. It looks like Cold Spring Harbor in New York, near where I grew up. How cool! The harbor runs into a channel that stretches maybe 20 feet by 50 feet. The channel ends just under the portal from my perspective. I'm not sure how deep it is but it doesn't matter. I jump through the portal, fall 20 feet or so and land with a big splash. The water is deep enough and the feeling of diving into it is perfect, the feel, the sound etc .... The water is very cold but not uncomfortable. The impact makes me lose my hat and wand.

I start to backstroke along the channel into the main body of water. There are DC's along the beach. I realize the scene has changed. The channel leads to a major city. I review the skyline but it doesn't look familiar. There are lots of cranes working on a number of medium sized and tall buildings. The channel actually runs into what would normally be a street making this section of the city sort of like Venice, but modern looking. I notice two 2x4 pieces of wood and use them to float throught the water street more easily. I notice two helicopters having a sort of dog fight in mid air. I wonder what that's all about but it passes. I get to the shore and boost myself up to the side walk. I start looking around. I see a block of wood which I pick up to continue my tactile sensation excercises. I'm still in awe of the details of this city which my mind has fabricated.

I continue to walk along the street and notice a really attractive DC. I put on my usual sly expression and get close enough to wisper to her. "Hey, you want to suck my c***?". She responds "sure" with a big smile on her face. (:angel: It should only be that easy IRL) We walk off to find some privacy. The best we can do is a bar that is not too busy. We walk to a booth and I rest my behind on the table and pull down my shorts and underwear. She tells my to put my hand under my balls and to push my penis into her leg and say "Sssssssssssssss", like I'm giving her an electric shock or it's a snake or something. I do this twice to satisfy her request. Then I say, "OK, are you going to start sucking". With a number of people in the bar who are seemingly unattentive to our activities, she gets on her knees and starts working me. I'm still working the stupid block in my hand hoping to keep the dream stable. This lasts for maybe 30 seconds and  I wake.

Yes, that was a weird request. But my walking up to a DC and so blatantly propositioning her is a little weird too. Since she was so agreeable to my request, I figured I owed her one.

Friday night has become 8-9 hours of sleep w/ Calea Z extract in the middle of that cycle. That's a nice combo for me, typically leading to tons of good dreams and usually a lucid at the tail end ...

What the F is a Cephalon?

I'm at work. We get hurded into an unfamiliar room for an all hands meeting. People are high fiving each other because they know pieces of the company will be sold and our time with this company and each other is limited.

I get a standing only spot next to the CEO. I'm quite uncomfortable, trying to balance on one foot in front of a monitor while not getting in the way of it so other people can see. A video goes on to explain the new company we'll be working for and their key product. The video shows a mechanical alligator. It has small mouths on the side of its body and they nip repetitively. As the Gator walks along the grass, the tiny mouths have the effect of cutting the lawn. The next application demonstrated is the gator's ability to demolish things. It walks into a shed and topples the whole thing over like it was made of cardboard. The gator is called the "Cephalon". People seem very excited by it.

There's a scene change. I'm near a house by the spot where I located the rotating tree last week. I look to a house that has small evergreen bushes along the perimeter of its driveway. I hear a radio broadcast and see a satellite dish on the front yard of this house. It explains a customer problem we're having. It sounds like an automatied response that is only smart enough to repeat the problem and indicate that if there's a workaround, the severity of the reported defect can be lowered to P3. I think to myself how pathetic it is that this device has replaced the job of some service engineer.

I look away and back again to this house and notice that the line of bushes now extends across the street to the next house. Duh ... dreaming. I walk closer to inspect. The house across the way catches my eye. Since I didn't do any WBTB or goal reflection, the only thing which comes to mind is sex. I enter the yard of this house and call out for a girl we'll call C. "C, where are you, I know you're here somewhere?". My dreamscape is barren of people. I enter the house and continue to call out for C. The house like most in my dreams, becomes a maze of small rooms that inter-connect in no logical way. I beging to float through the house, propelling myself by pulling my body into a doorway and shooting across the room. This carries on for a minute or two. Very realistic feel to the dream but no luck conjuring C. I wake.

One of my rare, no supps, no WBTB, no BW entrainment lucids - early evening ...


Ouch, that must have hurt

I find myself in my childhood home and I'm naked. I realize I'm dreaming. No one is around and my first instinct is to conjure an attractive girl. I realize there's some activity in the laundry room so I head that way. The door is cracked open slightly. I imagine E behind the door waiting for me  ;). I open the door but no luck. I head outside. The next obvious goal is to get to my rock on our private beach which is only a few hundred yards away. I start to run with the intention of leaping in the air when I notice Mr A in his backyard. He's staring at me wondering what the hell I'm doing naked running in the backyard. His look is so demeaning that I feel a little self concious and turn like I'm just jogging in the yard and head the other way.

I am approaching the trail which leads to the beach but figure flying is stilll my easiest route. I notice a boy of about 13 with his mother. The boy is doing mid air gymastics. He leaps in the air and does various flips and spins. He does this a few times but ultimately lands on his head. I think to myself that must have really hurt. Then I realize he's motionless. His mom is not frantic or anything, rather composed actually. But it's clear he has broken his neck. He's only a DC so I'm not too concerned either. I wake.


Later that evening w/ G/C

Who plugged up my portal?

I'm trying to relax and sleep on the couch when I hear a radio, similar to the volume and quality of my clock radio in the bedroom. I sounds like it's right next to me. Even though I don't remember drifting off, it's obvious to me that I did and I'm dreaming. I get up, grab my wand and head outside for round two with the portal. I'm a little over anxious having had some a great lucid last time. I do my tactile sensation excercises to keep things stable. As I approach the portals location I see only blackness. I get up to it and realize there is a thin layer of black plastic over the portal. The material is pliable, sort of like a black plastic garbage bag material.

I wonder how I should get through this? My first instinct is to pass through it like I can pass through walls. I place my hands on it but my wall trick doesn't make sense, since that relies on mentally softening the walls under my hands and pushing through. The plastic is already soft so replicating that sequence is not correct. Then I have an idea. I stab it with my wand and start ripping in a downward manner. This is working fine, but I wake prematurely.


Lucid Fragement - reverse surfing

I'm again in my childhood home at the edge of the bay on a tall structure. A huge wave is coming, perhaps 50 feet high. I realize I'm dreaming and I've already commited to sliding down this structure on a plastic board and riding into the wave head on. I continue. The people behind me cheer me on. I slide down and into this huge wave. I ride up it and get flung another 50 or so feet in the air. I enjoy the sensations of air, water spray etc  ...  I wake.

If I'm being honest with myself, I think I had more natural lucids prior to exploring LDS and other technology crutches. I would attribute that to doing more mental excercises like dream yoga, a little more consistency with my meditation, etc ...

There did seem to be a little residual spontaneous lucidity from my new technique, but that will need to be reproduced.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical October 14, 2008, 01:36:57 PM
G/C night. A little odd ... mostly DILDs and mostly obtained lucidity based on sound cues.


Back to the Portal - try #1

I find myself in my bedroom and I'm fussing with the alarm to set it to 3:00 in order to wake for a lucid attempt. The clock is blank and I wonder if the power went out? I start to float off the floor. Dreaming! I head downstairs taking a big leap down the stairs. I stop by the counter for my wand and a big knife (last time the portal was covered up w/ a black thick plastic). I head outside. The dream is a little unstable and it's exhausting to move. I move a few feet, get tired and stop. I repeat a few times but wake before getting to the portal.


Back to the Portal - try #2 (success)

I am on the couch trying to resume sleep when I hear some music playing on the stereo. It's a beautiful accoustic guitar piece. There are several layers to the compostion. I realize I'm dreaming as I didn't leave the stereo on. My first instinct is to just sit and listen. There is no way my conscious mind could produce an accoustic piece of this complexity. After 30 seconds to music gets too loud and I search for the remote. I can't find it and decide to move onto the portal. I grab the wand and knife.

This dream is quite stable and I move easily over to the location. I find a mud wall about 5 feet high. I look over the wall and find a scene about 50o feet down. It's like I'm looking from a tall mountain overlooking a desert city, perhaps Las vegas. I have two choices ... fly or fall.

I have never jumped off of anything tall so I figure .. what the hell. I struggle to boost myself up to the top of the mud wall and stand there for a moment looking down. Then with complete immunity from harm, I jump head first. I feel the falling sensation iin my stomach. I close my eyes and relax. The falling sensation is quite real and pleasant in a weird sort of way. The ambient light gets darker and darker and I wake before hitting the ground.


Back to the Portal - try #3

I am trying to fall back to sleep when I hear someone peeing next to me (like a guy peeing into a toilet). There is no toilet next to the couch and I realize I'm dreaming. I get up and again grab the knife and wand. I head outside. There is snow on the ground even though the temperature is a pleasant 65 F or so. The snow feels very realistic against my bare feet. I make it to the portal.

The shrub cover is thicker than in real life. There is a hole in the bush cover large enough for me to crawl into. That's an obvious invitation. I get on my hands and knees and start crawling through. I hope to find my target beach in NY on the other side. The brush gets thicker and thicker as I get deeper in. I struggle to make progress and  I wake.


Portal ... nope, diverted by physical needs

I again find myself on the couch and hear some sounds coming from my wifes office. I realize someone has turned on the kitchen lights. This is unreasonable as my wife is a sound sleeper and certainly not working at this hour. I get up and consider the portal task. I decide to give it a rest and head to the office to see what she's up to. I enter and my wife is at her far desk. She looks over to me. We were planning to find "time" for each other in the morning anyway. I walk over and drop my pants. Without saying a word, she starts working me. Not so much sucking, more like this odd twirly tongue thing (where the hell did that come from?). Not bad actually. This goes on for a minute or so and I wake before finishing.

G/C night. I had a few potential goals in mind and planned to play it by ear. I was intrigued by a DJ entry I read about someone (?) having some gender changing experiences during sex  :o


How about sex as a woman, with a woman?

I'm watching TV and I'm surprised that the scene in question has two woman engaged in some hard core lesbian activities. I watch for a minute or so and then sanity check the channel. It's NBC which surprises the hell out of me. I didn't realize the FCC had relaxed the obscenity standards to this degree? The blanket we keep on the couch is in the way and I pull it out from under the dog and toss it to the side. It then hits me ... I had left the blanket off the couch before my LD attempt and NBC will NEVER have porn on at any hour. Dreaming.

I take off my clothes and start heading upstairs to the bedroom. I have a plan. I hop in bed and wake my wife. She's sleepy and not in the mood but ultimately complies. I say "honey, why don't you lick me as if you were licking another girls p****?". She starts stroking me which completely misses the point. "No, like you're doing it to another girl". "Are you serious?" she asks. I confirm. She starts licking at the base and a little below that with a motion much more like I was expecting. It's actually very erotic and I just relax and try to enjoy it. I try to visualize a physical change to myself.  Maybe I was trying too hard, because I wake soon after.


What a great place for a mirror

I'm on the couch watching TV when I notice the snack tray butted up the the couch. I don't remember leaving it there and presume I must be dreaming. I get up and walk over to the microwave which has a bogus time in the wrong color. Dreaming. I decide to give the sex as a woman thing another try. Again, I get naked, hop in bed and rouse my wife. As always, she's not into being woken in the middle of the night but eventually gives in. I make the same request as before. This time, she ignores my request and seems to be on a little personal mission of how deep can she go  :angel:. Who am I to argue with this direction? She's gagging away, doing the best she can. After a short while I find the position uncomfortable. I help her onto her stomach and enter her from behind.

After a while, I realize there's a mirror behind the headboard. This gives me an idea. Without decoupling, I help her up onto her knees so we are both more or less vertical. We start doing it this way so we can see the scene perfectly in the mirror. We're both getting off on watching ourselves, it's very hot. After another minute or two, I get a little tired of this. I help her back onto her stomach and lube her back-door a little  :angel: (no full blown lucid sex romp is complete without it). She complains that she's not into it, but as always once I enter it she starts to get into it with lots of moaning. For the first time in this fairly long lucid sex experience I start to feel like I'm close to climaxing. I don't want to over think it so I focus on my left hand and fingers (don't know why). As always, overthinking it leads me to wake.


Zombie girl

I'm at a work scene in our old building. There are several people near me and I realize I'm dreaming based on the scene. A girl walks by and I wave her over. I pull down my pants and gesture for her to service me. This is something I never do in front of other people (DC's), but hey ... why not. She walks over and starts playing with me manually a little. I look over and she has this very lifeless zombie look going on. Her face is totally devoid of expression. I'm a little pissed that my control of this DC is not working. I'm as blatant as I can possibly be. "How 'bout it zombie girl, start sucking". This seems to give her some direction and she complies. I think I must have felt a little self conscious in front of everyone else however. I wake.


Portal and dreamscape change

Upon waking from the zombie girl scene, I was mindful enough not to move. I figured I could do a re-entry into my dreamspace by WILDing. Sure enough, within a short while I feel my usual vibrations kick in. Moderate intensity but strong enough that I'm sure I'll be dreaming when they stop. When they stop, I head to the kitchen to sanity check the microwave (blurred out) and grab my wand. I hear my dream wife stirring but I have different intentions in mind at this point, enough sex. I head outside. It's raining and I only have socks on. The water feels very realistic as it quickly soaks my socks. I have a little trouble walking so I resort to walking on all 4's which never fails me for some on reason. I get to the portal area.

The garden is devoid of foliage, and there are several boxes of hay around the perimeter of our fenced in garden. That's odd. I stand and break out the wand. I imagine energy starting at my shoulder, working it's way down to the wand and attempt to shoot it from the wand as I call out the name of the town I am trying to conjure. And then ... nothing. No lightening, no energy discharge, nothing. I'm a little disappointed. Then I notice that the scene on the other side of our property is completely different. It is in fact a beach and water scene. Not the exact location I was trying to conjure, but similar to some degree. The scene on the other side of the property line is unstable though. I try to mentally stabilize it,  but I wake.

I think the more profound question is how the mind fabricates an experience like flying or sex as the other gender.

I am sure if we were speaking to a buddhist, especially one who practices sleep or dream yoga they would offer the obvious ... past life regressions.

If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that we don't fully understand the capabilities of the human mind.

The sex as a woman attempt was actually very interesting. I'm surprised I hadn't tried it yet.

I know exactly where I went wrong with this too. Rather than rely on visual cues that I have somehow metamorphasized, next time, I'll just look away and concentrate more on how it feels. Obviously there are things you can do to a woman that you simply can't do to a guy. I know precisely where I'm going with this next time  ;)

I had intended to do WBTB w/ G/C and had one singular goal. Have a WILD or FA, go to my portal and travel to my target beach. During my first REM cycle I had a dream I was fishing on a jetty about 300 yards from the target. I considered that to be a good sign


Target beach, close but not quite

I'm on the porch of a house with several other people. We're having a conversation. There is a cement walkway that leads from the porch to the street. The street is moderately busy, much like the main road of a small town might be. There is a police officer making his way up the walkway toward us. There are one or two more walking in the steet. All three cops then stop and move backwards retracing their steps but in reverse. Then they go forward and the forward/backward pattern repeats itself several times. I ponder this and come to the obvious realization. Dreaming!

I don't recognize the precise scene and I'm not sure how it's going to lend itself to getting to my beach. I see several planes in the sky. They are also doing the forward/backward thing and my first instinct is to fly up to one of them. I start jogging using one of the airliners as a point of reference. I think about how jogging in lucids never makes me out of breath. I'm about to leap in the air when I realize that around the bend of some tall bushes is a beach. How convenient. It's very reminiscent of a location about 2 miles from where I'm trying to get.

I give up the goal of flying to the plane and jog to the beach. As I get to the edge of the road, the beach slopes down about 20 feet to the water. While I was jogging just fine, once I stop and get near the water, I have trouble moving. I do manage to get to the water however and crouch down to touch it. It feels very cold. I think to myself that the dream is nice and stable and my brand new Galantamine should help keep it that way. I start walking into the water. The slope of the beach is very shallow and I manage to walk about 20 feet and only get knee deep. The dream begins to get unstable and my instinct is to leap head first into the water. I do but it doesn't help. I wake.

I had a lot of success last night with G/C. All DILDS. I had so many lucids that I think the details probably were lost to a high degree. I didn't take notes until now. I did use 150 mg of 5-HTP 5.5 hours before taking the G/C. Maybe that helped? Oh ... and I am seriously out of lucid sex practice :?


Trapped by a blanket ... again!

I'm on the couch having a non-lucid. I somehow expect money to shoot out of the area between cushions much like an ATM. The couch starts making an odd sound. It hits me that this weird audio and expectation is not reasonable. Dreaming! I get up but realize the blanket (which I had purposely left off) is trapped around my feet and prohibiting my motion. The dream is stable so I relax and sit down. I slowly get it around and off my left then right legs. Trickier than it sounds as it re-wrapped itself several times. Eventually I get it off, crumple it into a ball and throw it as far as I can.

I open the door and head to the porch. My dream dog follows. The sound of her nails on the wood floor is strikingly realistic. I close the porch door behind me since I don't want her complicating things. At around this point, my vision becomes somewhat obscured. It's dark out, and now I can see almost nothing. The time proven remedy for this problem is flight. I lean back and flap. As I gain altitude night becomes day and I can see just fine. However I wake.


Another portal attempt

I'm on the couch and notice audio coming from the TV. I know the TV is off and this is impossible. Dreaming. I get up and head outside. The ambient light is a little better. I can see OK. I'm doing my all-4's crawling thing. I get to the portal area and notice a small opening in the bushes. I figure I'll crawl in and see where it takes me, assuming that it will be the target beach. This doesn't work as well as I had hoped. The brush is very dense and I have a great deal of trouble moving things out of the way and making progress. Eventually I find myself at the top of a large hill overlooking a community of houses which I don't recognize.  The dream becomes unstable and I wake.


Getting some from the angry wife

I'm walking through a house in the dark and realize I don't recognize it at all. Dreaming. I feel my way around and find a stairwell. I figure I'll go to the master bedroom and see who's there. The stairwell is very wide and turns 180 degrees half way up. I see a light on. I head that way and enter the room. I enter and my wife is reading in bed. I realize we're a little at odds with each other IRL, but figure she's just a DC. Couldn't hurt to try. I hop in bed and pull down my pants gesturing that she take care of me. She rolls her eyes and crouches over just a little. I start scratching her back so she will feel like she's getting something out of the deal. She complies  :angel:. She starts giving me a little oral. It feels very good. She then let's out one unusually large exhale (you know, from her nose) which also feels really odd but good. I wake.


Random girl at the mall.

I find myself in department store at the mall. I realize I'm dreaming. I start looking around for an attractive girl. This is no easy task. Lots of woman, none are very appealing. I finally happen upon a really cute girl. I'm about to make my move when I realize she's about 8 months pregnant. Uh .. .moving on. I finally find a cute girl. I take her by the hand and walk her over to a dressing room. She gets on her knees and start servicing me. It doesn't last too long though. I wake way before finishing.


Trip to Puerto Rico?

I'm in a limo that has a very low roof. I can't even sit up. I realize I'm dreaming. As soon as I realize this, the dimensions of the car become more reasonable. The driver is driving very recklessly and I just sit back and enjoy it ... who cares, can't get hurt. eventually he stops and let's me out. It's a Puerto Rican community. I figure that perhaps I'm somewhere in Florida? The streets are very busy with people. I start to believe that it's not anywhere in the states, but probably really is somewhere on the island. I enter a restaurant and look around. Even though I believe it's late afternoon, the restaurant is empty. I assume it's more a nightlife area and that people must eat late like in Spain. I mill around and finally leave.

I figure I'll make one last attempt at the lucid sex thing. I walk around for a minute or two but can't find any good candidates. I enter another restaurant/bar establishment. I find a really cute girl and walk up to her. I take her hand and tell her "you're the one". I have no idea if she even understands me, but she clearly gets the point. We try to find a more private area and need to settle on one in which we could easily get caught. Same deal ... she get's on her knees and starts servicing me (why do all my DC's think I like this so much :angel:). Her technique is very good, but I am way out of lucid sex practice. After 15-20 seconds I wake.

Wow, lots of lucids.  I'm getting my sex thing back again, sort of.  I guess it comes and goes.  I've been sick and contagious IRL, so I'm being avoided--that probably helped me get one.

We're trying to revive the LSC, so don't forget about that; maybe that can inspire you.

Yeah, the LSC kind of fizzled out. I think we need to be careful not to  make them too challenging.

I'm being avoided, and I'm not even sick  :sad1:  Thank god I'm getting a little in my lucids.

It's interesting where this lucid came from. Worthy of note is the fact that I spent a few minutes watching an info-merial last night during WBTB about a new excercise routine. The other point is my slight facination with certain theoretical concepts in physics - such as the hypothesis that all possible outcomes happen during any event and spawn/drive an infinite continuoum of realities. Wouldn't it be interesting if we discovered proof of that theory and that dreams were a gateway or manifestation of such a parallel reality?


What? I'm a girl? And where the hell is my brother?

I'm in a large aquarium swimming pool. My daughter "A" and I are swimming. She has red colored gogles on. While she is only 3 and has never swam before, she is doing wonderfully with long dives under water and so forth. At one point she comes up to me and playfully dunks me under water. She seems heavier than she should be and I start to struggle since I'm short of breath. But she relents and I rise back up.

We leave the aquarium pool and dry off and head down a long hall and into a room. This room is planned as a new workout facility and only some equipment from a large gymnasium has been moved in. I decide to do some weight training with a set of dumbells. A is naked at this point and roaming around the carpetted gym floor. No one seems to care that she's nude. I guess everyone finds it cute? I finish lifting and we leave the room. We somehow find ourselves on a cart being pushed from behind from someone? I close my eyes and when I open them, both A and the pusher are gone? I continue walking down this long hall and notice a bunch of young children headiing my way. As they run up to me they all want to give me high 5's. Around this time I realize I'm dreaming and also realize that the dream is very stable.

I continue walking and enter a room on my RHS. There's a woman who is only moderately attractive. She's wearing a black baseball cap. I figure, why not ... let me see if she wants to fool around. I say to her "oh, you must be the soccer mom?". She doesn't answer. I give her a suggestive look like I'm expecting her to drop to her knees and service me. She doesn't get it. I push her down a little to get her started. She takes offense to this and walks away (crap - my DC's never turn me down  :mad:). I realize this room boarders the outdoors and there are tall glass doors that create an exit. I think about flying and I'm about to leave.

I then notice a phone book on the floor. It says "1979 - Glen Cove and nearby areas" or something to that effect. Hmmm, we moved to an adjacent town in early 1979, I wonder if I can look us up? I open the book to the precise page on the first try. I find the entry. The text is a little jumpy and I have trouble focusing but it says "G. K., wife and daughter, address and phone # ...)". Wife and daughter? My dad had a wife and two boys? It hits me that this could be a manifestation of a parallel reality (kind of an intense thought to have while dreaming). I tear out the page and head outside.

At this point I have a FA and lose lucidity. I get out of bed with the page in hand and head to my music room on our 2nd floor. I drop off the page and head dwnstairs. I realize I'm in my underwear and that my pants are around my ankles. I pull them up and think to myself "much better". I wake for real.

2 mg Melatonin at 8:15; Calea extract at 3 during a brief WBTB and 3.5 hours more to sleep. Good formula - tons of interesting dreams and one lucid ...


I can fix that for you

I'm in an old convertible car, perhaps from the 1950's or 60's. The  steering wheel is on the right hand side and my friend D is in the front right seat. However he is only controlling the gas and breaks. I'm sitting directly behind and I'm on the edge of my seat reaching forward and actually steering the car. I can just barely reach the wheel. I'm having too much trouble and eventually tell D to stop the car. He does. He swings the wheel over to the left hand side and gets in the adjacent seat. I hop up into what should have normally been the passenger side and we continue.

We make a turn and the scene is very reminiscent of the creek area in my hometown. D brings up the subject of Dave Wyndorf from the band Monster Magnet. He speculates that Dave is rich and doesn't need to be in music anymore. I question this assumption. I tell him I like the band a lot but the appeal of stoner rock is limited. I theorize that he just likes the music and attention, not to mention he probably needs the money.

There are a few kids on dirt bikes who ride up a ramp and fly into the water. It looks very dangereous. When I look again they are obviously in trouble. Two of the kids are helping a third to his feet in some shallow water. He looks very shaken up.

The scene changes to my wife and I in the same car and we pull up to a store. The store itself is layed out like our local Target. Three kids enter and I assume it's the kids who got hurt doing that dumb stunt. However, the hurt person is a girl. I think this was the cue which actually leads to lucidity. She looks to be in tremendous pain and has a broken arm. I figure since it's my dream perhaps I can help.

I ask her to show me her arm and where it hurts. There's a horribe looking black and blue (and green) on her left outer arm. I take it in my two hands and gently feel around. I've never healed anyone so it's unclear how to proceed. I cup the upper arm in both hands and imagine the shattered bones gravitating toward each other and fusing together. I close my eyes to enhance the effect. I am convinced it's worked. As I open my eyes  I wake (I don't know how many times I'm going to trip over that problem ... close then open eyes = wake up).

Two low level lucids last night. The 2nd was interesting but somewhat impossible to describe. I'm simply not getting the usual bang for the buck with G/C anymore. I sure as hell can't go 3 days between uses even with Piracetam.


Flying at work

I'm heading up the stairs to our 2nd floor office space. There are many people in front of me and behind me. I feel light on my feet and levitate off the stairs and simply pull myself up with my hands using the handrail. I enter our space and walk down a hall. I turn to enter of corridor delineatinig two major cube areas. An ex employee YL, is in the middle of the aisle. I realize he's not getting out of my way and I also realize I must be dreaming. It's not a true 100% lucid feeling but I do make the connection. I chose to fly over him and fly around the office for a few moments  before waking.


Odd dissociated experience between dream and wakefullness

I'm at my parents old house in NY. They have a new dog who is buzzing around me trying to get me to take her for a walk. It doesn't sound like a bad idea so I grab a leash and head to the backyard. There is a large evergreen that my parents have decorated with little wolf figurines. I see three other wolf like dogs on leash but they pay us little attention. The path through the woods is much longerr and wider than IRL and we start walking. It somehow circles back around and re-enters my folks development. I decide it would be nice to run. I start running at a medium tempo at first and then faster and faster insuring the dog can keep up. I'm running faster than I can IRL and I'm not winded at all. I realize I'm dreaming.

I continue to run and as I enter the street parallel to the water I decide to fly. I leap in the air and gently close my eyes. I then fall into a state that is somehow between the dream and wakeful worlds. I get to this state once in a while. I feel myself floating at first and in short order I can feel nothing. I have no physical sense at all. Only pure mental awareness. It's actually quite blissful. I do have visuals though. It's sort of like very intense HI I get when on G. Lot's of shimmery lights and waves of trippy patterns. After some period of time which felt long but probably wasn't ... I wake (FA).

I'm now back where I started. I regain my physical sense having lost lucidity and go down the brick path to the beach. I tell the dog we're only going to look. It's dark out and the path leads to a cliff overlooking the beach. Someone has gone through a tremendous among of trouble to gather one foot round rocks and spell out several short sentences on the beach. One says "Irish are the best". Another was a derogatory statement toward Italians. It's low tide and there is someone fishing at my jetty. His pole is unusually large. I think to myself it's too rough for the striped bass to be in this close to shore and that he has no hopes of catching anything. I wake for real.

Last nights lucid didn't involve WBTB or supps of any kind. These tend to be a little lower level.


Why am I worried about the dream police?

I'm in my jeep driving along a road when I realize I'm in Syosset New York. This realization along with the fact that I can't really remember how I got there allows me to conclude I'm dreaming. Some traffic clears and I continue driving toward an intersection and left turn arrow. I proceed through the turn and figure I should have some fun with the car.

I start picking up speed. The limit is around 40 mph but I quickly make my way up to about 70. When I look down to confirm my speed the next thing I notice is a police car parked on the opposite side of the road. I'm unsure if he's seen me. Even though I'm fully aware it's only a dream I feel compelled to flee the scene. I just don't want to deal with getting pulled over ... even if it is an insubstantial projection of my mind  ???

I drive another 1/2 mile or so and pull into a small complex of businesses. There's a restaurant which catches my eye. It's noon but there doesn't seem to be any activity? I get out of the car and poke my head in the door. The lights are off and the building is empty. As I turn back outside I notice someone in the restaurant heading my way. I decide not to stop, there seems to be nothing to gain. I gingerly walk around trying not to be noticed just in case the cop is driving around trying to spot me. I don't see him anywhere. The dream starts to feel unstable and I just tell myself I can stay here if I choose. The dream instantly feels more stable.

I get back to my car and notice that the only key on my key ring is my old trunk key from my 1976 Dodge charger. It somehow fits perfectly into the ignition of my jeep and I slowly drive away. I wake.

I went 5 days without G/C and took some last night. This revived my WILDS so that's good. But I am out of practice with WILDs and lucid sex.


Brief WILD, it's been a while ...

I'm trying to get back to bed when I remember my trick of focusing my eye position upwards a little and placing my conscious awareness at that point. This works almost immediately. I feel head and neck vibrations of medium intensity. I welcome the feeling and just relax and flow with it. The singular wave stops in about 10 seconds. I get up and notice the VCR clock is unreadable. Dreaming! I have a very light feeling. As I start walking toward the front of the house I can barely keep my feet on the ground. I have the intention of conjuring a particular DC. My guess is that she'll be waiting for me in the bedroom  :angel:. Before I can even get to the stairs however, I wake.


Let's try that again ...

I'm clear minded enough that when I wake, I refrain from moving and again focus my eyes and mental awareness upwards. In short order, I feel another moderate wave of vibrations. Again, it's such a welcome feeling. I relax and ride it out. When they stop, I have some trouble moving which is a good sign. When I do sit-up and realize the VCR clock is blank and the nightlight is out. Dreaming! I head over to the kitchen counter and grab my magic wand, if for no other reason to facilitate some tactile sensation.

I head upstairs hoping to find "DS". I enter the bedroom and realize my wife is in bed and she's tossing and turning. As ask what's wrong and she says that she has a stomach ache from eating some bad apple. I tell her that I'll hop in bed and see if I can help her out. I conveniently remove my underwear before hoping in. I position myself and her such that I can scratch her back and comfort her a little, while she's uh ... taking care of me orally. This goes on for maybe a minute and I wake.


Is it worth trying again?

Same deal. I sit still and wait for the vibrations to return. I don't have to wait long. When they cease I sit up and notice the night light is off. Dreaming! I make my way to the stairwell. I over shoot the kitchen counter and briefly head back for my wand. I grab it and proceed. I'm not 100% into the sex and/or conjuriing thing at the moment. I figure I'll walk to the stairwell and listen if anything is going on. I do and there's not a peep upstairs. Since I'm quite light again, I figure some flying is in order.

I head to the front door and exit. As always, I leave the door ajar just in case I goofed and I'm not really dreaming. I run full speed up the front yard and into the street. I take off. I only develop a reasonable coasting through the air. I turn around on my back and resort to my time proven back stroke method. I struggle to put my wand back into my left pants pocket for potantial use later. This works better. I have a brilliant view of the tree tops with their changing leaves. It's still dark I think to myself that I should look east and try to find the sunrise. I flap and get higher and higher. At some point I relax and perhaps close my eyes.

When I open my eyes and regain perspective, I am still flying high in the air but it's daytime. The scene has completely changed. I'm in a rural area with moutains and a vast countryside. It reminds me of rural Pennsylvania. It's still a fall scene. There's a construction crew working below. I have a great view of the construction site from about 300 feet in the air. The detail of the trucks and heavy machinery is awesome. At this point, I am simply floating through the air with no extra effort on my part. I continue to take in the scene for another minute or two before waking.

Last night I was on the phone saying hi to the folks. My mom mentioned her interest in that HBO show about Vampires (True Blood?). I personally haven't watched it much but she was raving about it.

I'm up for some WBTB right now but just had an intense lucid I should document now. I'll add to the list later if appicable:


Vampires are good in bed

I'm in a poorly lit room. There's a woman in bed who is very attractive and completely naked. By her posture and behavior, I realize she's a vampire. I playfully put my wrist in her mouth waiting to see if she'll bite it. I then realize I'm dreaming. Oh, I'm naked too!

Instinctively, I'm a little forceful with her (can't be too careful with a lucid vampire). I help her onto her back and enter her very abruptly. We start going at it. She's very into it. She doesn't say a word, but it's clear from how she's bucking back that she's very lustful. This goes on another minute or two. I think to myself how nice and stable the dream is. We change positions with her on top. She's riding me wildly when I realize I'm close to climaxing. The dream starts to destabilize. I control that nicely and re-stabilize things but I lose the moment. This patterns repeats 2 more times over the next few minutes.

Finally, I lose lucidity when my brother walks in and mentions that we have to go back to the planetarium now. He closes the door. I'm alone in a room that has a 3-D model of the planetarium and campus (there's a lot of outdoor stuff too). I'm still naked and decide I should please myself. This doesn't go too well as I'm clearly distracted with the family waiting for me. I get dressed and head outside.

I meet my brother and we enter an outdoor restaurant and pub. C from the gym is running the place. He seats us at a table meant for two. I remind him there will be five. He changes tables. He also provided two tapped beers. He realizes that was a mistake too, as we wanted Bass and he gave us Bass Ale (yeah, makes no sense). I wake.

Getting it on w/ that vampire was so fun, I figured I would continue the sex theme. I had a specific person and conjuring goal in mind. As fate would have it, I got lucid twice more and my wife was easily available each time. I'm such an opportunist. We seem to have better LD sex than actual these days anyway  :?


In the shower, then a hotub in public

I'm on the couch trying to LD when an hispanic woman walks in with a small baby. I immediately realize I'm dreaming. By the time I hop off the couch and stabilize the dream, the woman is gone but the baby remains. I do have some fatherly instinct in me ... I walk over and coddle the baby. It's a boy and it's very reminiscent of my side of the family. We walk to the kitchen. I don't want to abandon the child, even if it is just a DC. It seems needful.

Not long after, I hear the shower running upstairs. I head up with baby in hand. I enter the bathroom and my wife is showering. I gently put the child down and remove my socks, pants and underwear. I pull the curtain open and get in. The tub itself is almost full as the drain appears plugged. We start going at it. Before long, the rest of my clothes disappear and I'm on the bottom of the tub with her riding me and I can hardly keep my head above the water line. We reposition some and I find a more upright position but she's still on top. I realize the scene has changed completely. Where still in the tub, but it's more like a hot tub scene. The tub is on a porch of a house. Behind my wife is a small building, about 10 stories and to our left is a 2 story apartment complex. It's nightime out.

We continue for a bit and I figure I should do her from behind a little. We get up and she bends over the tub railing with her hands outside the tub on the porch floor. I enter her that way and reposition her so she's not leaning over so far and the angle is better. We're doing it that way when someone comes out of the complex. I figure he'll see us immediately and wonder what his reaction will be. I find the whole situation completely amusing. He nevefr does notice us however.

At this point, I lose lucidity  and have a sequence of forgetable of non-lucids.


Stop F***ing up my lawn + more sex!

I'm in my house when our old lawn service shows up and they pull out this tool and start digging a trench across my yard. I'm livid. I run out and start yelling for the guy to stop. The machine is very loud and he doesn't hear. Eventually he sees me and stops. The scene is no longer my front yard and I realize I'm dreaming.

I figure I'll first head into then house then work on the sex thing some more. As fate would have it, my wife is there in a cute pair of black slacks. She's talking on the phone. Without hesitating, I pull down her slacks and enter her from behind. She's still chatting away more or less ignoring me. I repostion us to be on hour right hand sides on the floor still giving it from behind. I start to feel a little taken back that she's still talking so naturally on the phone. I uh ... pick up the intensity a little. Now she can't ignore it. She's slowly gets into it, moaning a little and hanging up the phone. Then an old woman walks over and says "that's all she has time for". My wife gets up and heads to a bathroom. The old lady doesn't say another word and walks away.

I think to myself "that's bullshit". I storm in the bathroom and have at it again. This time I get a little something I don't get IRL  :angel:. I guess I'll leave out the nasty details. As is typically the case, I get close to climaxing once or twice, but never quite get there. I wake.

You know me, I get into occasional lucid sex mode. Then I spend my next few going through portals, etc ... The sex thing comes and goes.

Why wouldn't my DC's comply? At least I'm in complete control of my mind. Maybe you need to set your expectations differently. Expect them to be more comliant.

Hey, I'll bet you have some more good lucids soon enough. When is the NT arriving? Any word?

A G/C night ...


Flying and Weird Trees

I'm on the couch trying to LD when I think I hear my daughter coming downstairs. She's 4 and has no business being up at 4:oo am. I listen carefully and instinctively pretend to be sleeping. She walks up to me and says "daddy"? I get up and take her by the hand and tell her she can go in bed with mommy, but it's too early to be up right now. She agrees and we head to the stairs. A calender is on the stairwell wall and it catches my eye. My wife has written her daily events in very small print. When I look down, my daughter has disappeared. I realize I'm dreaming.

The first thing I do is listen for any activity upstairs. My wife has a girlfriend coming over today, and perhaps they're naked and fooling around in bed? Nope, nothing. I decide to head outside. My vision starts to become very obscured. The dream is stable but my vision is crap. I feel my way for the door, and walk out. I'm barefoot and can easily feel for the end of the walkway and grass. I run and leap in the air and flap. I gain altitude and hope my vision will clear. I tell myself "clarity now!" expecting that to help. It doesn't. However my technique of flying to clear my vision ALWAYS works and this time is no expection. Suddenly, the scene clears. I'm about 25 feet in the air and I see a medium sized brick school. I look the other way and see my house (which doesn't make sense IRL). I fly higher and toward a number of tall leafy trees. I glide under the umbrella of leaves, trying to touch the leaves and branches. Though the flight is effortless, I can't quite reach the tree with my hand.

I decide to fly higher and in doing so notice that the tress get taller as I get higher in the air. A pine tree catches my eye. It must be about 1000 feet high. To my left, I see another tall tree - but it's suspended in mid air. The entire first 100 - 200 feet of the tree is missing. I fly over to the pine and decide to fly as high as I can. The clouds are not very thick, so there's really no cloud cover to go through which is what I really had on my mind. I just fly higher and higher and enjoy the floating feeling and the warm sun on my body. I soon wake.


Psychic Orgasm (not what you're thinking)

I'm apparently a police officer and I head to a shower and locker area that's only for police. For some reason the entrance is in a mall next to a McDonalds. I enter and there's a basket of free pretzels at the front door. I grab one and continue. The locker area is busy and I have trouble finding one that's not in everyone elses way. I realize I don't have a lock and I'm self conscious about leaving my stuff unprotected. I realize I don't have a gun with me which seems odd. I start taking off layers of clothes. Everytime I remove a piece, I realize another piece is underneath. This is very frustrating, as I'm sweaty and just want to clean up some.

Scene change. I'm in an apartment with two woman. I'm getting undressed. One girl says "why are you getting undressed?". I tell her that I thought we were all going to fool around a little. I have the same problem as before, sort of. I remove my shirt and start working on my pants when another shirt re-appears. Girl 1 says she's not really into it. I finally realize I'm dreaming based on the goofy problem with my clothes. When I realize I'm dreaming, that problem goes away and I strip to my shorts. I say to girl 1 "well maybe your friend is into it?. I walk over to girl 2 and start kissing her a little, making my way down her neck. I'm just trying to get a sense if she's interested. She obviously isn't. Then she says something odd. Girl 2 says "don't force me". But she says it in a weird way, suggesting that maybe she wanted to do some fantasy/role play type stuff. I didn't really pick up on that nuance just then however. Instead, I tell her I wouldn't do that. I get up.

Girl number 2 then says, "what about that psychic orgasm thing I heard about, let's try that". She gets up, strips naked and gets on the floor. She's very heavy. I can't seem to win in this dream. I decide to inject a little humour. I say "I think it would be easier to have a psychic orgasm with my cock in your butt". She jumps off the floor in a panic. Her friend starts laughing her ass off and repeats my comment like it's the funniest thing she's ever heard. I think to myself "OK, I'm not getting anything off of these two". I wake shortly thereafter.

LOL, life at the technical house is majorly boring. This is one of the reasons I have my little lucid fantasy world in the first place.

Yeah, there's lots of trees where I live. I find that they help with my flying a lot. They provide a point of reference. Simply flying up without something to focus on is difficult for me. I can usually only get so high.

Dreams are Weird (like we all didn't know that)

I'm in my old house in NY. I'm trying to LD and I just finished a brainwave entrainment cycle with my NeuroTrek. I get up and decide to use the bathroom. I figure I'll put the NT on for a few more minutes while I use the bathroom. I exit and notice my wife in the adjacent room. There's some kind of commotion about some friend of my brothers doing something bad, like being a spy? My wife is naked from the waist down. I head to the bathroom and pee. I exit and realize there's a family gathering downstairs even though it's only about 7:00 am. My dad walks by, also naked from the waist down. I tell him I just spent hours entraining my brain and I need to LD right now. I complain it's too damn loud to sleep. He doesn't respect this problem at all and basically tells me to just deal with it. I get back to my room. The family has quited down some at this point. I disable the NT and try to LD.

 Nested dream (start):

I find myself in my present day neighborhood walking along a nearby road. A small carnival has been set-up. I realize this would be a nice event to take my daughter to. I'm looking around, scannng for things she might like when I bring her here. A young asian woman gets in my way, and I get pissed that she isn't watching where she's going. I continue. I see a screened in tent where children are going around a table chasing balloons. They look like they'e having fun and it's something my daughter would like. I continue and the same asian lady gets in my way again. I again avoid her but get pissed that she's not paying attention. I see my wife. I head over to her. To my right is a movie theatre, or mall entrance - unsure which. I think a mall with a theatre. My wife says something about being on a drug because she thought I had given her AIDS ( ??? uh ... probability 0). The asian lady walks over to us and apparently she's a friend of my wifes. Her boyfriend is supposed to rendevous with us soon. (Note - I didn't realize it then but the asian woman looks like Grace Park from SciFi's BSG). We enter the building. It's completely devoid of people. My wife and her friend are talking and I get bored and decide to sit on a bench in the Malls corridor. I realize I'm dreaming. I think to myself - "great, it worked again - let me just try to stay here for a while". Upon thinking this, the scene starts to fade. It's my common obscured vision problem. I figure I'll fly to resolve the problem. I start flapping and have the usual sensation of rising in the air.I do this for 10-15 seconds and nothing more than a vague outdoor evening scene start to manifest. Then the oddest thing. I feel my arms against the bed I believe I'm lying in. I flap, I feel like I'm floating - but I feel like my arms are scraping a bed and pillow as I flap. I wake - FA.

 Nested dream (end)

Sure enough, I'm in bed. It's dark and I'm initially disoriented. Then I get my bearings and realize the room has been arranged like my very first bedroom in our house that we moved from when I was eleven (house which predates the house in the first part of this dream sequence). Then it hits me ... I AM in my original bedroom from 30 years ago. Holy shit  O_O. I never get to this house, it's too old a memory. I wake  :mad:. I'm on the couch IRL with the NT pulsing away.


NOTE - it's obvious now that my wife and Grace Park in a secluded location was a gift from my subconscious mind, if you get my meaning  :angel:

A Rare, Traditional WILD - Sorry Turtle ...

I'm on the couch having lots of shimmery lights HI. I'm very relaxed and close to dozing off. Just then, a scene starts to form around me. I'm in a car driving along a highway. It's three lanes and fairly busy. I notice a turtle on the outside of the car climbing up the passenger side window. The dream is not 100% cohesive, I feel very light - almost like the car and my body are floating. I instinctively change lanes moving one to the left without checking my mirrors. I don't hit anyone, but the lane change shakes the turtle off the car and it hits the pavement. I'm concerned for the turtle, even if this is only a dream. I look in my rear view mirror wondering if it will at least fall in the middle of a lane and have a chance. Instead, it falls right along the portion of the lane where the right tires of a car will crush it. Within seconds, a car comes along and does just that. I expect to hear a sound for some reason but don't. I wake,


I Can't Escape my Real World Challenges

I have a prolonged series of head and neck vibrations. I relax and flow with the sensation. When they end, I can sort of see through my eye lids. I see a brick wall similar to the one in my parents den (NY house). That vision fades and I open my eyes and find myself on my couch. I'm a little sluggish and pretty convinced I'm dreaming. I look at the VCR clock ... 6:42. Hmmm, too dark for 6:42. I check the microwave and cell phone and they same the same thing even though I wil them to be different? The dream is so stable and such a perfect simulation of reality. OK, I'm pretty damn sure it's a dream though. My daughter comes downstairs and I chose to ignore her. I grab my wand and head outside imagining warm weather. That goes fine which confirms it's a dream.

I start to have a little trouble walking and do my usual walk/crawl thing. I head to my portal location. My ability to move frees up. I get there and realize it's suddenly very cold with a modest amount of snow on the ground. I crawl under some tree branches to find ... nothing unusual. Just the next door neighbors yard and a chicken wire fence that isn't there IRL. No point in hopping the fence, nothing interesting to pursue. I decide to create a portal by putting my hands on the fence and trying to dematerialize it, like I do to walls sometimes. The fence is not sturdy however, which makes for a poor analog to my wall technique. I give up and head back inside, maybe Grace Park is waiting for me? I get in and my wife is doing the most bizarre thing ... cooking O_O. She has on panties and a pajama top. I suggest we fool around. She's not immediately into it. I tell her she's ony a dream, so she should be. She seems to see the logic here and I drop her panties to the floor. I bend her over when ... my daughter comes down looking to watch one of her videos.  :P - I can't even avoid disruptions in my dreams. My wife gets all subconscious and covers herself and takes our dauther into the TV room. I'm standing there aroused, and decide to finish myself. I start up and within seconds I'm close to climaxing. This of course is like a dream ejection button and I wake.

A short lucid I will capture here ... for it's bizarreness factor:


My Daughter is Watching too Much Wizard of Oz

I am in the kitchen of our house when I realize a flying house is headed our way travelling northbound. I think to myself "that house should be much higher, I think it's going to crash". As it passes over our house I am expecting a shock wave of some kind to rattle the house due to all the air being pushed. Nothing. It flies over us and I run to the front of the house to see if it will indeed crash. It get's lower and lower and nearly crahes into a neighbors house before turning and gaining altitude again.

I run outside to further investigate. Suddenly it's dark outside. I hear a helicopter due NW. I look around and see some lights hovering in the sky. I presume it's a news helicopter and perhaps it's over a crash or fire? Then I realize it's not a helicopter at all. It's an array of very bright lights. There is a horizontal line of lights, perhaps 10 of them. There is a steel structure that binds them all and the whole massive device is hovering in the air. The lights start to turn my way and I get the sense they're looking for me. I quickly hide behind the Austrian pine in our front yard. The light array starts floating my way. It seems determined to find me. I start running for the house when I realize ... "this is ridiculous, I'm dreaming". Moments after coming to this realization, I get kicked out and wake.

It's so funny to me that your thought was that the house should be flying much higher.. not that the house shouldn't be flying!  :D  The fact that seeing a flying house didn't cause you to become lucid is truly maddening!

Like most dreams, I can explain where many of the dream images came from. The house if from my daughters incesant watching of the Wizard of Oz. I also watched the show on Discovery channel called "Destroyed in Seconds" that evening.

Now aliens is a bit of a recurring theme and that's a whole different matter. I was able to eliminat ethe karmic thread that had me coming across aliens within my dreams (e.g. walking into a room and finding aliens). UFO types of phenomenon still loccur for me though (NOTE - dreamspace only).

Show me Something Interesting

I'm on the couch trying to WILD. I miss a few chances but again encounter a wave of head/neck vibrations. It starts very moderate in intensity. I focus my awareness on my 3rd eye and let it intensify. Soon I feel my astral body rotate and rise off the couch and moments later get sucked back into what feels like my real body. I know that experience. Dreaming.

As usual, I have some trouble moving at first. I gather some momentum and rotate off the couch. The VCR clock and nightlights are all dysfunctional which further confirms my dream state. I start walking toward the kitchen. I'm very light on my feet - it's almost like a moon walk effect. I realize the dream is not 100% stable yet. I grab my wand from the counter and use the ridges for some tactile sensation as I make my way to the living room.

My goal given a WILD was to conjure our friend L from the gym  ( we somehow got on the topic of girl-girl sex yesterday and she admitted making out with a girl not long ago. Then admitted a few prior events too  O_O ).  My concern however is that the sex goal is too ambituous right now given the lack of stability. Unbelievably, I chose to skip the sex thing and head outside. When I open the door the dog comes running but I ask her to stay inside. As I make my way to the street I remember another goal of mine. To ask my dreamspace to "show me something interesting". Repeating this in my head once or twice I make it to the road. It seems to be early morning and no one is around. Then I hear a garbage truck coming this way. It's about 3 times the size of a normal one. It comes barreling down the road and I figure I'll just jump over it as it heads my way. I comes on too quick however and I have no time to leap. I hit the pavement and it safely drives over me. weird.

I then walk for a bit but there's nothing going on. I decide to fly. I realize I have a large walking stick in my left hand which has appeared from no where? I drop the stick, run and flap. I have trouble getting decent altitude. I make it to a power line and grab the line. It has a lot of play in it and I decide to use it like a trapize artist might. Swinging back and forth and perhaps trying to do some flips up to a tree. I swing a number of times getting more and more momentum but wake before I get to do the flips.

Finally ... Lucid in my Childhood Home!

I'm in the basement of our old NY house. My brother and mom are with me and look much younger in age. More consistent with what they would have looked like when we all lived together in that house. They direct my attention to an area of one of the walls where my dad has a lot of his police memorabilia. I start reading a piece about how the Port Authority has supreme control of everyone's lives. I recognize this as a goofy thing to be claiming. Wait ... dreaming!

I look over to my mom and brother once again and I'm somehow compelled to say "you dummies". I guess this was in relation these DC's sending me over to the weird article to begin with. In fact, I should have thanked them. I have one goal in mind. Get to my favorite rock on the beach.

The dream is nice and stable and I'm quite convinced I will be here for a while. I head upstairs to the first floor. There's someone in the kitchen but I ignore them. I head to the den and the sliding glass door. The door itself opens the wrong way ... with the latch in the middle of the frame and the door sliding into the wall. Who cares. I open it and find the screen portion opens normally. I head outside. Fly or walk? Here's where I may have gotten into slight trouble. I choose to fly of course. I walk into the neighbors yard since a portion of fence is down and his yard is more open for a running take off. I run and leap in the air. At first I only manage a hover, but with some flapping quickly gain altitude. Their old house in 4 houses from the edge of a 75 foot cliff which lead to the Long Island Sound. When I get about 30-40 feet in the air I have a magnificant view of the water. It's very windy and there are white caps everywhere. Luckily the wind is blowing east which is my desired direction. All I need to do is lie on my back and kick a little with my feet using my arms to guide my flight and let the wind do most of the work. I quickly clear the houses and I'm directly over the beach line.

I look to the west and see several fishing boats. They are all listing very badly, having a hard time managing the rough seas. As I continue flying, I only have a perhaps 1000 feet to go. The problem however is I've never seen the beach from this perspective and the view my mind has fabricated doesn't quite make sense. It's absolutely beautiful, but not correct. Also, the storm has driven the waterline all the way up to the shore and low lying houses. So my rock would actually be about 15-20 feet underwater. Crap. If I had walked to the rock, I may have done better since I've done that walk many times.

I pass an area along the shore which looks like the desired location, but alas, the water is covering the rock. I continue flying and see a police commotion of some kind. There are police cars and sirins flashing. It looks pretty serious. I decend down to beach level and while still hovering in mid air a litttle, make my way to the commotion. It's a small business, a liquor store I believe. Many people are gathered looking at the scene. I figure if there's a robbery or some bad event in progress, maybe I can kick the perpetrators ass? Whatever happened however, the event itself is over and there's nothing to see. One guy, the business owner I guess, says to me "that was a very decent and brave thing you did here today". I think to myself "but I was only thinking about helping". I wake.

Oh yeah, the relative nature of time in my dreamspace. I did it already  ;)

Nice, DrT.

My parents, their home and neighborhood are by far my most prevalent dream signs.  I am apparently still so mentally and emotionally comfortable there that I almost never remember to do a reality check while asleep.

I wonder if it is those memories being at such a "base level" of our experience, chronologically speaking, that makes them so ubiquitous.

Hi DrTechnical.

Looks like some great stuff here! I've just started reading.

I'm on the couch trying to WILD. I miss a few chances but again encounter a wave of head/neck vibrations. It starts very moderate in intensity. I focus my awareness on my 3rd eye and let it intensify. Soon I feel my astral body rotate and rise off the couch and moments later get sucked back into what feels like my real body. I know that experience. Dreaming.
Is this a technique you regularly use? It sounds very similar to something I've been trying (get into WILD from a meditative state.) I get the beginnings of a floating sensation, but that's it. Your technique is exactly what I want to do, anyway.

I'm in the basement of our old NY house. My brother and mom are with me and look much younger in age. More consistent with what they would have looked like when we all lived together in that house.

Ah, the old house. I (my dreams) love it so much, that's it in my signature! Sorry you didn't get to your rock, but it was a great dream anyway. Some easy to please DCs there too.  :chuckle:

Why are my Parents in the Fireplace?

I have a series of vibrations which stop rather abruptly. When they finish, I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. As is often the case with the first WILD of an evening the dream is not stable. I don't feel well grounded and the entire scene is washed out. I'm in our den but the fireplace is on the wrong wall. I vaguely see two people behind the glass door of the fireplace. While I can't see them perfectly, I become convinced the people trapped behind the glass are my parents. I make a selfish decision. I choose to ignore them  :o (they're only DC's you know) and decide to head outside to stabilize the dream. I figure flying will help. I make my way outside and the dreaming is fading more and more. I can hardly see at all. I leap in the air to try to recover the scene. I have the usual pleasant sensations of floating and gaining altitude, but this time it does nothing to hep with stability or scene formation. I wake.


Trippy Flying Dream

I'm on the couch trying to WILD. I'm on my left side but in an open position (kind of a hybrid between left fetal position and lying on my back). That position sometimes facilitates vibrations. Sure enough, I feel a wave coming on. It hits a peak in intensity and stays there for a very long time. Within about 15-20 seconds I see what looks like a black tunnel. Green numbers start flowing from right to left. The sequence of numbers is hard to make out. I focus on them figuring it will keep the vibrations stable until they are ready to end naturally. The vibrations decrease in frequency but not power and eventually stop. I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming at this point. I'm a little sluggish and manage to sit up. The VCR clock says 5:15 which is a little too early. I walk over to the kitchen counter for more confirmation. First, I realize that I have small pieces of cotton in each ear. I remove them (this should have been sufficient dream confirmation). I get to the counter and the nightlight is on. My wand is where I left it. The fresh cornbread is there. Wait, my special electronic device is not where I left it. OK, definately dreaming.

I head to the porch. Task 1 is to insure that the weather outside is pleasant. I open the door expecting nice balmy air to hit me. It does. I leave the porch and step onto the patio. It's very dark. My new goal is to conjure a UFO and hitch a ride off this planet. A low flying 747 flys past our yard. It's only about 150 feet in the air. There's no noise what so ever and the plane itself is just a ghost like image. Weird. I'm about to call out for the aliens when I realize I can hardly move my mouth or speak (a consequence of a RL dry mouth due to a head cold). Since I can't call out for a UFO I figure I'll head up and try to find one.

It's very windy so I figure I'll leverage the wind and just let it direct my flight. I leap in the air and mentally push the ground away from me and within seconds I'm several hundred feet in the air. I think to myself that flying just never gets old. What a cool sensation and view. I'm on my back just letting the wind push me along, directing a little with my arms and legs. I start looking around. Here's where it gets odd. The scene below is very dense with leafy trees. By and large I can't see to the ground itself. But every 100 yards or so there's a break in the tree cover - more like a hole in the forest. Even though it's nightime in the dream, it's like daytime in each of the holes in the forest. I'll fly over one and there's foliage, but not of a midwestern variety. For example, the first hole is well light and full of massive hawaiian trees and foliage. The next hole I fly over was more tropical rainforest in nature, like a scene out of Costa Rica. This pattern of flying over little well lit microcosms continues for about 5-6 scenes. Evetually, after a few minutes of flying I wake.

Here's the oddest thing. I wake in a fetal position on my right hand side. So what I thought was a WILD transition from wakefulness to dream was actually part of a non-lucid dream itself. My mind is very tricky  :).

DISCLAIMER:  If you're offended by drugs, violance, sex or nasty family disputes and rude language ... you can refrain from reading todays DJ entry. With that said, it's only a dream you know.


White Flower Petals do Strange Things

I'm at the office sitting in the dark. I think how pathetic it is that they've taken to turning off the lights to save a few cents. I decide to get up for coffee. I get to the corridor and become lucid. More like half lucid. I realize I'm dreaming but my thought process is not 100%. I fly to the coffee machine. I pull the lever on the hot water tap expecting coffee but get ... duh ... hot water. I get pissed. I'm in no mood for Tea. I go back to my cube via a corridor that doesn't exist IRL. I wake (False Awakening).

I'm now on the floor of our Den trying to WILD. I get a wave of vibrations that settles into a medium intensity and goes on forever. Like 1 minute or so. I begin to lose patience when they finally stop, abruptly. I get up a little disoriented and believe I'm dreaming. I look at the VCR which says 5:56 am. I go to the kitchen clocks and will them to be different. However they say 6:01. That's all reasonable but I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. I decide to head out. I realize I'm in a sweat shirt and briefs and realize I need to insure it's warm outside. I open the porch door and keep my dog from running out using my leg to stop her. I close the door to prevent her escape. I walk over to the screen door which leads outside and open it.

When I open that door it's suddenly daytime outside and very colorful, almost like pastels. The transition from night to this artificially colorful daytime reminds me of the Wizard of Oz (when Dorothy first leaves her house). The back yard is completely transformed. To the right is an open meadow. To my center is a huge pine tree. To the left is a garden. A particular plant immediately catches my attention. It's beautiful. Each one is about 6-8 feet tall with a single white flower on top. The petals number around 6 per flower and they are curved and rather thin, such that they look almost most thick eye lashes. I feel compelled to walk over. By the time I get there the flower petals are denser per flower and have some pink in them. A line from an old Black Sabbath song (Behind the Wall of Sleep) hits me ... "deadly petals with strange power". The next step is obvious. I wait for the breeze to push the flowers down, leap up and grab a hand full. I take one petal and put it in my mouth. It's tasteless but has an unpleasant texture. I manage to get it down.

Scene change. I'm in a room which appears to be a school classroom. I exit and enter a hallway. Then the oddest thing hits me. All these guys who are into killing their DC's, what's that all about. What am I missing? Maybe I should try it? I walk around looking for a DC to kill. It's very quiet but eventually a middle aged guy walks around from a corner. He must be the principle. I walk up and hit him with a left right combo squarely to the face. It does no damage. He pulls a gun from his right pants pocket and shows it to me briefly. I apologize saying "man, my punches aren't what they used to be, huh?". In retrospect, that wasn't really an apology. I carry on.

I decide to find a woman. I walk past a Men's room and figure the Woman's room must be close by. I'll bet I find some woman there  ;). Sure enough, I find it and enter. There is one woman in there washing up. She's attractive but about 30 lbs overweight. Even though I'm a guy who just entered the Woman's washroom she doesn't pay much attention to me. I reach around and start unbuttoning her pants and bluntly ask "you wanna fuck?". She asks "are you sure?. I confirm. She drops her pants, I lube her up a little and enter her from behind. She's looking at me in the mirror and asks "Do I know you?". I tell her "no, I don't think so?". After getting a little momentum I get the urge to lie on the floor, still in her from behind with her on top (yes on odd thing to do on a public bathroom floor). Without decoupling we do just that. She only seems mildly into it so I take her left hand and put it on her clit and ask her to play with herself. I figure it will be more of a turn on if she's moaning a little. She does momentarily but seems a little shy about it and stops. I realize that she's a little too heavy for this position and suggest a position change. She suggests the one from before so she gets up and bends over the counter top again. This carries on for another minute or so. It feels fine but I'm not that close to getting off. I ask her to get on her knees.I figure I'll just get myself off. While I'm taking care of that she does the oddest thing. She starts rubbing just to the right of my cock. It feels very good for some reason and I'm about to come. The sensation subsides. I'm thinking I should ask her to rub under, not to the right but feel self conscious about asking. The dream looses cohesion and I wake (another FA).

I'm on the couch and my wife is explaining to me that she's leaving for a business trip and won't be back for 5 days. I'm livid. How can she drop this on me at the last minute like this and expect me to take care of everything? I start yelling and screaming. My mother in law yells in from the kitchen, "stop yelling alcoholic". I yell at the absolute top of my lungs "FUCK YOU". There's a lot more to this dream. It gets nastier. I'll leave it at that.

Weird sequence  ???

I think to myself that flying just never gets old.
Agreed, and well put.

When I open that door it's suddenly daytime outside and very colorful, almost like pastels. The transition from night to this artificially colorful daytime reminds me of the Wizard of Oz (when Dorothy first leaves her house). The back yard is completely transformed. To the right is an open meadow. To my center is a huge pine tree. To the left is a garden. A particular plant immediately catches my attention. It's beautiful. Each one is about 6-8 feet tall with a single white flower on top. The petals number around 6 per flower and they are curved and rather thin, such that they look almost most thick eye lashes. I feel compelled to walk over. By the time I get there the flower petals are denser per flower and have some pink in them. A line from an old Black Sabbath song (Behind the Wall of Sleep) hits me ... "deadly petals with strange power". The next step is obvious. I wait for the breeze to push the flowers down, leap up and grab a hand full. I take one petal and put it in my mouth. It's tasteless but has an unpleasant texture. I manage to get it down.
Really great scene! Too bad you didn't find out what the strange power was...
Surprised the dream didn't end when the sun shines in.  :goodjob:

She only seems mildly into it...

Oh but I did determine the strange powers of the flower petal. It was clearly psychoactive.

This whole dream was a weird LD trip. The immediate scene change upon eating it. The violance (actually very unusual for me, honestly I don't really get off on killing DC's, it was some kind of weird Id based impulse). The sex with a stranger (uh ... not uncommon at all) finally the tail end sequence with such a discontinuous flow that I lose lucidity (also unusual for me). There was stuff I left out of this one too.  :o

Given the chance to eat these petals again in a lucid dream ... would I?

You bet.

They were kind of like your wand, with powers that you gave to them.  Hey, whatever happened to your wand, did you lose it?

Lost it? No way. That was my birthday present to myself last Feb to celebrate my middle "agedness". I'll bring it back just for you  ;-D


Trapped Between Worlds, Again.

I'm in an unfamiliar living room doing some brainwave entrainment with my NeuroTrek. It doesn't seem to be working right. I don't feel any pulsing at the ears. I start pushing the function key to review the settings. Everything looks OK except the brainstate setting which is too high. That shouldn't make it malfunction though. The electrode port is actually on the side of the machine and the jack is a small petruding port off the main device. I check the connection and it's OK. Then out of no where I get zapped with a pretty good shock. At the same time, I see an icon on the screen which looks like a battery icon (sequence of long and short dashes on top of each other). Is it a battery problem? Then it hits me ... Dreaming.

I remove the NeuroTrek and look around. This was not the experience I was hoping for but I search for my wand none the less. There's a console on the wall to my right and sure enough my wand is on it waiting for me. OK. Time to head outside and see if I can conjure a UFO. The room I'm in in quite bright and when I exit through the front door it's very dark out. My eyes can't adjust this fast and I see nothing but darkness, I have no point of reference at all.

Then an unwelcome thing happens. I lose touch with my dream world completely. I'm just floating in the dark void. I start to get some shimmery light stuff going on like early HI I sometimes get before WILDing. It's pleasant to watch, but not the result I was after. I wake.

A Blunt DC Proposition

I'm at a mall just milling about. I think to myself that if I can't fall asleep soon, I should just get up and start my day (a left over thought from when I was last trying to fall asleep and LD). Then it hits me ... I'm dreaming.

My goal if I were to find myself in an arbitrary indoor location with lots of DC's was to find a cute one for sex. I don't have to look very far. There's an attractive middle aged woman walking with a guy. She has long straight blond hair and just has a look like she would be up for some fun. I walk over to her and pull her over to me. Her male friend just keeps walking. She looks at me and says "Do you want to F me now?". I give her an acknowledging glance and help her over to one of the stores. She gets a little ahead of me and enters the store first (she seems quite anxious - only in my dreams, huh?). I enter the store having lost sight of her. It's a fancy mens clothing store with suites and various dress clothing. The store is completely devoid of people and I can't find her.

I start looking around. Then I have some problems moving, probably due to the anxiety of having such an easy opportunity only to lose it just as quick. I relax and manage to move a little better. I still can't find her. I figure I'll call for her. "Where are you?". I hear a faint response of "over here". I start walking in the direction of the sound  but wake  :mad:

Last night I had LDing on my mind. I planned to sleep in a little and wake at 3:00 for G/C. I watched a show on parallel universes and worm holes at 7:00. As fate would have it, I had a rare no WBTB, no supps, no BW entrainment lucid.

I'm up for WBTB now and will write up this off the cuff one, since it was pretty good. I was about 90% lucid the whole time. I knew I was dreaming - but my critical thinking was not 100% ...


Opening a Portal to the Beach:

I find myself lucid in a dream. I forget the exact how and why? With portals on my mind, I decide to open one and head to my target beach. The only thing I find to dematerialize is an old car. I walk over to it and kneel down. I put both hands on it and imagine the car softening under my hands. I push into it and start crawling through the nebuluous thick jello like substance. Within a few seconds it starts to feel more like a very heavy tarp is over my body and I feel compelled to find the end of the tarp and escape it. I'm convinced that my target beach is on the other side. I become very anxious with anticipation. I find the end of the tarp, toss it over me and ... sure enough - I'm at the beach.

The beach itself is not the exact location I wanted, but it's conceptually very close. It's a rocky shoreline. I see Conneticut about 10 miles away on the other side of the LI sound. It's early evening and there is various activity to my right along the coast. I decide to jump along some small jagged rocks and find an easy path along the beach. I manage this and get to an unobstructed piece of the beach. As is typical of the north shore of Long Island, there is no sand, just small pebbles that you sink into slightly with each step. The smell of salt water is overwhelming and I think to myself how nice and stable the dream is so far.

I walk east along the beach and notice two attractive girls. Distracted, I walk over figuring I could get some. I'm about to sit next to them when I realize I have white pants on. Since I'm not 100% mentally, my instinct is to not sit for fear they would get dirty  :?. One of the girls gets up and starts to give me grief about my appearance. She points out that my flip flops are on backwards (left flip/flop on right foot, etc ...) and tells me how poorly manicured my toes are (which IRL is not an issue). I start to get caught back into the dream fantasy at this point. Somehow I know a few things about her. She's apparently famous and I fire back with her jaded past, and the incident she recently had with Madonna  ???. I wake.


Looking for a UFO

I have a brief awakening, look up and check the time. I feel like I'm ready to fall back asleep very quickly. Within seconds of lying back down, I feel vibrations which start subtle but pick up in intensity very quickly. Toward the end of the vibrations I first hear a smoke alarm, which then morphs into the sound of my wind-up alarm clock. The vibrations stop (hmmm, were the vibrations just part of a dream too, unclear). I get up quite convinced I'm dreaming. I quickly grab my wand from the counter and head outside. I'm very excited about finding a UFO somewhere in the backyard - I'm jogging, more like frolicking toward the back (I do this when I'm very excited in lucids sometimes). I hear several woman in the yard next door. Nope - I won't get distracted this time. I ignore them. I start to have trouble moving and briefly sit to regain my composure. I soon get up and continue, walking just fine.

I look to the yard to our right and see nothing out of the ordinary. The yard to our left is more obscured by trees and bushes. I'm convinced that if I can get a view of the yard I will locate a small flying saucer like UFO. I make my way over to the perimeter, only to find ... nothing. Crap! I was so sure? I decide to try the house to the back. I jog up to the yard and hop the fence. I realize I had dropped my wand at some point but disregard that problem. Again, I find nothing unusual in the yard and begin to question whether this was a good conjuring strategy?

I wake. NOTE - I forgot to listen for the UFO. I think listening for it and heading in that direction might be better?

I have many FA's over the next 2 hours and finally catch one ...


Is My Wife in her own Lucid Dream?

I wake on the couch. Some guy is there and suggests I put up a few more Christmas decorations. I grab a box and head to the tree. I put up one just to satisfy him and realize I'm dreaming. I decide to head upstairs and see if my wife wants to fool around. My only concern is that our 4 year old hopped into bed with us and is likely to be in our dream bed right now. Well, she's only a DC.

I climb the stairs and realize that it feels like a mask is on my face, much like when I used to use the REM Dreamer. I pull it over and there is some residual sensation but I feel better. I get to bed and rouse my wife. She sits up. She hops out of bed and sits on the floor out of sight of our daughter. She starts telling me about a dream she had.I pull down my pants and assume a kneeling position. She gets the hint and we start playing around. She then says the oddest thing ... "wow, this is so vivid and real". I realize this is something she might say in her own lucid dream - surprised by how realistic everything is. She continues to explore her lucid world. Playing with me manually, she comments ... "look, it's so smooth and rubbery". Huh, OK thanks for the compliment I guess? I wake at this point.

Portals are lots of fun, but unpredictable.

I've managed to get exactly where I intended a few times, I mean within a foot or two. Other times, I get trapped and can't find my way out. I used to do the portal thing a lot more.

Yeah, I am sure I lose lucids all the time. I sometimes wake in the middle of the night with that vague "I was just having a lucid feeling". But those early evening lucids are fleeting unless you wake right out of the middle of them while 100% lucid.

That is a great surprise. I'm thinking the same thing about lost early lucids, especially after the other night.

Yeah, I am sure I lose lucids all the time. I sometimes wake in the middle of the night with that vague "I was just having a lucid feeling". But those early evening lucids are fleeting unless you wake right out of the middle of them while 100% lucid.
And that feeling is the main reason for it. I've also lost many because I was too lazy to get up.

I'm very excited about finding a UFO somewhere in the backyard - I'm jogging, more like frolicking toward the back (I do this when I'm very excited in lucids sometimes).
It's ridiculous, isn't it? I'm guilty of frolicking too.  :shakehead:

Trying to Fly to Find Daylight (during BW entrainment)

I'm outside and realize I'm dreaming. It's a rather automatic conclusion. I get the urge to do some flying. It's dark out but I get a sense that if I fly up high enough I might find daylight. I give it a shot. I start flapping and quickly gain altitude. It's very dark and this is usually problematic for me. This time is no exception. I lose more and more vision until I can't see much of anything. I still have thhe floating and flying sensation however. I decide to roll over a few times as that will give me different perspective and views and perhaps allow me to recover. This is fun (sensation wise) but doesn't help. I wake.


Lucid at Work (post BW entrainment)

I'm in one of the labs at work. Everyone has been requested to change lab location and we're all pretty pissed about it. I'm bored and tired and decide to just sit and lounge. I feel a little self conscious about that since as a manger, it's not the greatest impression to make while everyone else is hard at work. I get up and leave this lab. At a lab coat rack, there is a huge empty plastic bottle of champaign. I get a sense that our team had a few drinks before the task here.

I enter our "secure lab". Our director is having a meeting with a number of people. He sees me and asks me to rope off the corner where the equipment rack used to be. I tell him I need to get a knife to cut the rope which just happens to be at the table. When I return everyone is gone. I look at the clock and the time is 2:55. Hmmm, that makes no sense since the last I knew it was well past 3:00, actually past 4:30 when I stopped my BW entrainment. I look at my cell phone and it says 3:25. Still to early. Plus certain icons on the phone are flashing. Oh, of coarse ... Lucid!

I'm still in the mood to fly. I walk over to the heavy glass windows and ponder how to get through them. I push my hand up to one and it gives a little. I push harder and it now feels like plastic and splits horizontally along the mid section of the window. It still has some spring and wants to return to a normal position, so I need to step on it while pushing my body past the top flap. I leap in the air and start flying. My momentum is limited so I coast over to the top of the building and kick off of it for better flight velocity. Now I take off nicely. I soar away from the building at a nice speed. It's such a wonderfully detailed view, and it's nice and warm  :D. I enjoy the flight for a minute or so when I see a number of people on the ground. I wonder if I should swoop down on an attractive DC? I start looking around for a good candidate, but wake.

MB, if anyone is privy to my LD dream secrets ... it's you  ;)

No, I am not obsessed with lucid dreaming. I don't do reality checks all day. None of the above.

Yes, occasionally - I get that "dream feeling" you mentioned and get lucid that way. Generally not. Dreamsigns typically do not get me lucid.

By and large, I notice unreasonable or impossible things. End of story. I think my ability to apply logic in my dream space in a little better than most. That's what I rely on.

I think the only things you and I do differently are two fold:

1) I know I leverage WBTB a little more than you do. My wake periods tend to be longer.

2) I may be mixing techniques a little more than you are. I think your supplement regiment puts a little more stress on your AcH receptors than mine does. Hence I probably get a bigger kick when I do use G or Hup-A.

I don't think I'm special in any sense. Where's Iadr - how the hell does he get lucid so often. You may be asking the wrong guy  :D

Galantamine is pissing me off a little. Last night I did my usual G/C dose after a 4 day hiatus. I had nothing but false awakenings, I don't know how many. I caught 3. But my mindfullness and ability to apply logic was not great. Lucids 2 and 3 were almost identical so I won't bother writing the 3rd.


What the Hell is Strapped to my Head?

I wake on the couch (FA). It feels like something is strapped to my head, much like the REM dreamer sometimes used to feel when I used  that device more often. I feel around and lift off a cotton head and ear warmer of some kind. Moments later, the sensation returns and I do it again. I realize I'm dreaming. I remove it again and try to will the sensation to stop, but moments later it again is covering my eyes. I realize my physical body must have my head against the pillow in an odd manner and that sensation is bleeding into the dream.

I figure my best strategy is to "see through" the garment. I decide to head outside to fly. That might allow my eyesight to return. I feel my way from the TV room to the front door and exit. I leap in the air and start flapping. I get a flying sensation but no return in eyesight. My frustration on the matter leads  me to wake.


Where's the Horn Section?

I wake on the couch. I get the sense I might still be dreaming. I check the time on the VCR and it's faded out. Dreaming, no doubt. I get up and sanity check the microwave clock, same thing. For some reason I have completely forgotton about my goal of conjuring a UFO. Instead, I have more flying on my mind. I head to the front of the house. There is big band music emanating from upstairs. It's quite loud and sounds live. Again, for reasons unknown I choose to ignore this oddity and think about how annoying it is. I open the front door and leave.

I want to fly superman style and start running. I'm mindful of the fact that I'm running top speed with no impact to my breathing or stamina. I hear a number of teenage boys about 100 feet away. I continue running in their direction. When I see them they are dark ghostly looking figures. I determine I will run up to them and then leap in the air and fly over them, trying to freak them out a little. I do just that. I never get a look at their faces as they remain in a ghost like form. I start to soar a little but can't get very good height. Maybe I'm too caught up with the ghosts and what they might do next? I wake.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical December 13, 2008, 08:40:21 AM
Wow, I took 6 days off from G/C and bam ... hyper lucidity.

I bought a book on the topic of astral sex. It got me thinking about two other things. One - perhaps my approach on lucid sex is poor, maybe I should look fr more intimacy in my lucid sex. Two - what if dreams were part of the infinite possible threads in the universe - possible outcomes that you don't belong to because you made certain decisions that didn't fork in that direction - who might be a sex partner in that thread?


OK - Maybe More Intimacy is the Trick?

I am lying on the couch hoping for a WILD. I don't wait long. I get a very strong sequence of vibrations. Usually my vibrational transition starts me in my dream space where I left off in the physical. On the couch. This time, I had a translation. When the vibrations stop, I'm conveniently in bed. I'm confused by this at first. I look over to the High Boy and realize where I am. I feel a woman next to me. I wonder who it is? Could be anyone along the infinite sequence of threads? I turn over and realize it's my wife. We start kissing very intimately. I'm just taking my time, kissing and running my hands along her body. It's very nice. But this dream is way to unstable and I wake.


Still too jacked up on AcH

More vibrations. When they end, I am certain I'm dreaming. I head over to the VCR clock to confirm and it just shows three vertically placed red dots. I'm excited I'm lucid again and promptly  wake.


Some Pleasant Flying

I find myself on the floor of what appears to be a bathroom. I realize I'm dreaming since I can't remember how I got there. When I get up the room looks more like my kitchen but somewhat mis-shapen. I start heading to the bedroom but my eye sight starts to fail. I decide to head out to fly which normally resolves this problem. I feel for the door and exit. It's wonderfully balmy. Very humid and maybe 75 F. A full 65 degrees higher than reality  :D. I leap in the air and start flapping and kicking. Soon enough my eyesight returns. It's very dark and the view is mediocre, but the flying sensation in so peaceful. I wonder if I should fly into the bedroom? I don't seem to have great directional control however. I get the oddest urge to dive bomb and hit the ground. I try but for some reason I always slow up before hitting the ground. This time is no exception. I wake soon after.


Taken by My Wife

So much for intimacy. This one is a little weird - I'm not sure if I'm willing to share with the general population here?. It went on for a long time and I remember it in good detail. Suffice it to say that I assumed a very submissive role. I have to say, it was actually quite erotic. Odd what you can find out about yourself in a dream.


Returning the Favor

I'm on the couch but get the sense I'm dreaming. I sanity check the VCR time and confirm. I head upstairs. I wonder who's waiting for me. Again, it's my wife. Same deal as before. This one went on for a long time and was very detailed. But I was more in control. Very hot. But I don't know if I'm ever going to have another lucid orgasm again. I've had a few, but they seem so difficult now  ???


Super Fast Running and Non compliant DC's

I'm outside along a road and realize I'm dreaming. I get the urge to drive recklessly and try to imagine myself in a car. This fails. I decide to try to run super fast instead. This works amazingly well for a first try. I start to run and simply speed up the imagery in my mind. Within moments I'm running a good 50-60 mph. How cool! I see a scene up ahead. There are various cop cars. I can see one cop is being held at gunpoint by a bunch of others. I decide to head straight for the scene. I slow a little and when I get there I use my arm to hook the bad cop around the neck and drop him to the ground. I stop.

I'm looking for an acknowledgment from the good cops. Maybe a thank you or something? They ignore me. I say "Hey DC's, guess what, I'm going to fly now". They continue to ignore me. I decide to walk away. There's a lake about 50 feet away. A couple is walking that way. I think to myself that a threesome would be interesting? I walk over and take the woman by the hand. The guy dismisses himself. Now it's just me and her. I come up witht he most suave one liner ... "hey cutie". She looks at me and says "well you're not that cute, your teeth are too big". I've never been accused of this  ???. "What do you mean my teeth or too big". At this point I think I out right ask her if she wants to fool around a little. She doesn't seem interested. I pull her arm a little more forcefully thinking she wants to be a little forced into it, but she totally rejects that approach and pulls back. I'm clearly not going to make progress here. I tell her to have a nice day and go the other direction. I wake soon after.


Final Chance with the Wife

I'm on the couch when I hear our 4 year old coming down the stairs and toward the TV room. I realize I might be dreaming. She ultimately comes right up to me. I roll over and open my eyes and there's no one there. OK, obviously dreaming. I head upstairs. It's an early morning scene, but the light has an odd translucent grey quality to it. Almost like a scene in a black and white movie. I make my way to the bedroom. My wife and daughter are sleeping. The clock says 2:50 which is clearly impossible. But jumping my wife with our daughter in bed is too weird even for a lucid. I try to rouse her so we can go to another room. She stirs but I lose the dream and wake.

I took my normal dose of G/C last night after a 6 night rest. 8 mg G and 400 mg C.

I have never upped that dose to try to deal with the tolerance issue. I think that would be counterproductive for me.

I have a series of strong vibrations. When they end I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. I sit up and notice the VCR numbers are distorted and red. Definately dreaming. I try to get off the couch with great difficulty. I manage but my coordination and motion is completely dysfunctional - almost like I'm drunk. I figure I'll do my best and try not to stress out. I run to the door to get some momentum and succeed. I open it and the dog runs out though I'm trying to prevent this. I go back in momentarily for my wand. I leave the house and mentally alter the temperature to a nice 70 F. It's quite dark out and I can't see much of anything.

I start walking in the back yard, doing my tactile sensation excercise on the ridges of the wand to keep the dream stable. I'm looking and listening for a UFO. I'm peaking through some bushes to the yard next door hoping to find something. Instead, I realize my motion problems are creeping in again. I decide not to fight it and just sit down. Then it dawns on me that I should have some "orgasm practice". I wip it out and start playing with myself. After a minute or so I realize my dream cock is about twice its normal length.  Hmmmm. That gives me an idea. I start sucking on it (something that occasionally creeps into my non-lucids - I know I'm not the only one). It feels pretty good, who knew I had this talent? This goes on for another minute or so when I realize that I don't question the auto-fellatio at all, it's just a dream. But if I do get off, huh ... what the hell is that going to be like? I put concern to the side and carry on. I then realize there are lots of lights on next door and wonder what would happen of my neighbor came out and saw me with my cock in my mouth? This freaks me out more than the act itself. That coupled with the fact that I can't seem to climax anyway leads me to move on.

I am moving better now and make my way down the yard, listening and peeking into the adjacent yard for a UFO. The dream carries on for another minute or so this way, but becomes unstable and  I wake.


Surprise Party?

I'm with a guy driving back from the supermarket. I get the sense he's being deceptive. I ask where we're going and he tells me a street he's looking for. It sounds unfamiliar. He mentions he might not be able to find it and turns at another. We drive up to a building and get out. We enter and the rooms of the building are empty and dark. At any moment I get the sense that people are going to jump out and surprise me for some reason? I continue looking around and he leaves. I then realize I'm dreaming.

Since it was daytime out the UFO task makes no sense. OK, more orgasm practice. I pull down my pants and start playing figuring I'll carry on where I left off. I'm having a little trouble getting aroused. Then a disturbing thing happens. Some other guy walks into the room. Then, in even more disturbing fashion, he gets on the floor and starts blowing me. At first it's all teeth, and I pull back. He realizes his mistake and tries again. OK, it's just a dream and I'm not sure what to make of the situation. But why not? I let him continue. His technique the 2nd time around was very good. I can't say I'm turned on by the fact that I'm getting it from a guy, but it feels good enough that I go with the flow. The 1st guy then calls for his friend, and the guy who's sucking me leaps up and leaves.

I decide to take a walk at this point. I'm now completely naked and I leave the building. I see an attractive middle aged woman about to enter her house. I walk over ( I love DC reactions in these types of scenarios). She looks me up and down and says "ooooh, very nice! But I can't play right now".  She enters her house. I continue walking but wake shortly thereafter.


UFO Conjured.

I'm in our den at night and my mom and dad are there. My mom is telling my dad how pathetic it is that there's so much porn in his office. This is totally unreasonable and I realize I'm dreaming. I decide to forgo the mom/dad interaction and head outside. Like IRL, there's plenty of snow, but it's nice and warm. I try a different conjuring approach ...

Looking into the night sky, I start yelling "OK you guys, I know you're up there". "Where are you, come on down". I don't have to wait long. I see a ghostly dark figure of a plane. No, it's not a plane at all. It's a UFO. It has a long shape somewhat like a 747 or other large plane, but it's much more complex in design and detail, like something out of star wars. I yell some more and start waving my arms but they fly by without stopping. I decide to look around the yard and adjacent yard for any pods or other alien activity. I listen and look for anything unusual and eventually make my way to the back. I'm about to crawl under the bushes into the next yard when I notice how odd the snow feels. It's snow, but it feels more like dirt. Very odd? I decide to head to the front of the house instead.

I get up and start making my way. My lips are dry and I use the snow still on my hands to moisten them. This is a huge relief, it does the trick. I enter the front and realize there's a very large and ornate snow man across the street. There's a small snow house in our yard which I did not build. There's a huge ornate multiple room snow fortress across the street. How cool. The it happens again. Even though it's now light out and I've given up on the UFO, it reappears in the NW sky. Again, I wave my arms and yell for them to stop, but nothing.

I decide to walk over to our neighbors yard to see if her husbands not there  ;). I'm able to "conjure" a lack of his car on the driveway and hers is there. However, it's full of 3 other passengers. I get the sense they're waiting for her to come out. I don't think this is going to go well and I move on. The house next door has a cop or some oher authoritative figure there. I don't stay to chat and continue walking around. I wake.

:o Those were some crazy dreams. But I wish I had your ability to get lucid.  :?

Weird that you would be concerned with what your neighbors thought, since you were lucid. It happens all the time though I guess.

@UW   Yeah, it's not that I don't realize it's just a dream and I should do whatever I want, including ignoring the neighbor. The issue is that unwanted DC's tend to screw up situations. Take sex ... it's still easiest to relate to 1 person at a time. If there were several others watching, those DC's would no doubt do something unpredictable in my dream. Their unpredictability is tough to control

@MB    I'm not super concerned about what goes into this journal. I try to keep it half way cleanish though. Some details get censored. I did read your dream night before last with the extended FA. Very interesting. Hey, who doesn't have that stupid pink vibrator. Of course to accidently find it inside yourself  :D

Last night I had a rare Galantamine miss. Not that the G didn't do it's job. I simply couldn't fall back to sleep. I did have many dreams prior to my WBTB session. One is worth sharing. The message here comes full circle ...

Oh, adult themes:



The point here, is I am definately trying way too hard sometimes. Whether it's trying too hard for lucidity and keeping myself up thinking about tasks, or trying too hard with sexual goals and consistently waking before I finish. Hmmmm, there's a lesson to be learned here.

I'm glad, but still trying to assimilate the fact that it was with T. We doing even like each other, not really.

I've tried to remain more passive in dreams before. In principle that's a good strategy. My personality tends to get in the way of that however  ::)

Finally ... I see my deceased uncle T in a dream and realize I'm dreaming! Also interesting was the fact that I wasn't trying to become lucid at all, not even a WBTB session.


Where Have You Been Hiding Him?

I'm in a scene in my parents house in Arizona. IRL, we just showed up today for a Christmas visit. My dad and I are chatting about some topic, when out from the corner of my eye I see my deceased uncle T heading this way. This surprises me as I didn't realize that T moved out to AZ as well? As he passes by I playfully pat him on his belly for some reason. I ask my dad where he's been hiding T all this time? Then it hits me ... T is dead ... I'm dreaming!

I'm not really sure what to do with this opportunity and since this was a totally random lucid my thought process is not 100%. My uncle sits at a table and offers me a drink. My dad continues with his conversation like everything is quite normal. I don't want to be rude to either DC. But it dawns on me that here's my easiest chance to fly over the desert at night. I slowly make my break from the scene while my dad continues talking and T pours some coffee liquor. I open the screen door and exit. They have a huge patio and I get a good running start. I leap and start flapping. The flight is troublesome. I am having a great deal of trouble getting altitude of any kind. Eventually I get high enough to appreciate the desert to some degree. At some point I believe I close my eyes.

When I open them, the most unbelievable scene change had occured. I am now about 1000 feet in the air, flying through sparse cloud cover over an ocean. There is nothing but water everywhere I look. It's very windy and the water is choppy, full of white caps. I am slowly decending toward water level. Occasionally when I have these types of experiences, it dawns on me that they might represent past life regressions - momentary windows into a previous existence I enjoyed. I reflect on that possibility as I hold my arms out wide and enjoy the sensation of wind along my face and body. When I get to water level I start flying parallel to the water, perhaps two feet above it. There are small fish sticking their heads above water here and there. I use my hand to graze them and sort of pat them on the head to acknowledge their precense. This goes on for at least another minute or two. The flight is so intense that I become too oblivious to the greater scene around me. When I pay attention again, I realize I've flown into a channel of some kind. There are boats coming in and out of what appears to be a fairly busy boating lane.

At this point I begin swimming. I miraculuously avoid getting hit by any boats but start bumping into large underwater tanks. Bumping into stuff underwater always concerns me. I also see tubes coming out of the water and speculate that the tanks and tubes are used for refueling. I decide to get out of the water and find my way to the land. I reflect on how long the dream has been so far and what I should do next. The only task which jumps out at me is sex.

I walk into a house with a screened in porch since I hear a TV playing. A small girl is watching TV. She asks what I want and whether I want to see her daddy? I tell her no and that I'll simply come back. I continue walking. I figure my mind will conjure a hot willing babe quickly enough. I don't have to wait very long. I turn the corner and there's a woman putting some stuff in her car. She has on tight little shorts and a tight shirt both of which server to show off her perfect body. I walk over and just start fondling and kissing her. She seems into it. I help her onto the ground and remove her short. I start making my way down between her legs. I get to her clit and two seconds later she jumps up startled! She explains to me that she ate too much spicy food last night and it burns horribly. I have trouble assessing the connection and lose lucidity. The dream carries on non-lucid but gets boring.


NOTE: This could be nothing more than coincidence. But I seem to have the most beautiful off the cuff lucids when our 4 year old is sleeping in bed with us. She rarely does - but I often get lucid during those events and they're always very beautiful thought provoking experiences, like the flight fragement above.

Yeah, some of my best lucids are the ones that just happen naturally. They tend to be more stable.

And yes, Ohare was a bitch yesterday. I keep swearing I will never fly during winter time again, and I keep getting sucked into it.

Escaping the Romans

I'm near a building which has a large parking lot. I'm with several other people including a small girl. There's a man in a roman soldiers suit. We all believe him to be Caesar. We have poison darts of some kind and we're trying to find an opportunity to render him helpless with the darts. He turns away from us and I notice his uniform is designed to expose his butt cheeks. The little girl has a rock or small ball of putty that I guess had been diped in the poison. She runs up to caesar and rubs it into his left butt cheek. Then one other person has a similar ball but with a needle on it, also presumably dipped in poison. He runs up and nails Caesar in the opposite butt cheek. Caesar is stunned and groggy. I walk up to him and punch him in the face. With his last bit of energy he calls his troops. Off to my left is a cliff and forest. Roman soldiers start running our way. I run to escape them, heading toward a different part of the forest.

When I get to the forest border I realize the cliff is quite steep, maybe 60-70 degrees. I see my high school friend BL and tell him to run this way. He ignores my suggestion. There are many fallen trees and I have trouble making my way down the cliff. I chose the fly down the cliff instead. It instantly hits me that I'm dreaming. I continue to fly down the cliff and realize that the bottom of the cliff is a shorline of a large body of water. I look for a solid object to kick off to change direction toward the ocean. I find one and push in that direction. I start flapping and look for a hole in the dense forrest for me to fit through. I find a y shaped tree and fly between the upper branches. I'm now clear of the forest and over a large body of water which reminds me of Oyster Bay Harbor in NY. After 10-20 seconds of flying the scene starts to fade out. It fades to black but I don't wake. I get somewhat trapped in that in between state. I'm floating in a void somewhere between sleeping and awake. I actually like this state, it's very blissful. I start rotating very quickly and wake.

I find myself on a couch (FA). The TV has a hard core sex scene going on. I look up to the TV channel and it shows 903. I wonder when the hell cable started showing hard core sex? I wake for real.

I took my usual G/C dose after at least a week or so off. Holy crap - what a strong response. I had about 6-7 lucids in about a 90 minute period. Here are the more interesting ones:


Still Looking for That Damn UFO

I have very subtle vibrations and feel like I've transtioned. I get up off the couch and the VCR clock shows 1:30. That's too early and confirms I'm dreaming. I head to the back door and the dog follows. I scoot through without her getting out. I enter the back yard and start looking around. Nothing. I figure I'll fly around and see if I can intercept one. I leap in the air, flap and struggle to gain altitude at first. Then I start to get a little momentum. It's a pleasant flight, especially as I get above tree height and pass over the tops of some very tall trees. They all still have their leaves which makes for a more interesting view. After a minute or so of flying and not finding a UFO, I figure I'll land and just loook around some. I land on a side walk. While I haven't flown very far, the scene I find myself in is not like any area I'm familiar with nearby.

I start walking along this side walk. It's still quite dark out. A young woman starts walking my way. She has on a tight light green blouse and very tight/high dark green shorts. She has blond hair and is very cute. She walks up to me and I hold out my arm to stop her. We start kissing. It's more of an intimate type of kissing, that goes on for at least a minute or so. I wake.


Trying to Fly Through the Clouds

I'm lying on the couch and feel a very subtle shift into my dreamspace. I get up a little disoriented and quite sure I'm dreaming. I head to the counter and grab my magic wand and go to the front door. I have to force myself to make progress as sleep paralysis has crept into my dream. I do manage to oget to the door and open it. It's very balmy out, at least 75 degrees and very windy. Once outside, I can move much better. I head to the street looking for a UFO. I take the "hitch a ride" description of the task literally and hold out my two hands with thumbs extended. I'll try anything at this point. I then notice several bushes at the end of the driveway. They're not there IRL. They have the most beautiful flowers ( I just now realize - I should have eaten one - crap!). The flowers are clumped together similar to a lilac bush. But the flower shapes are larger and more ornate. Some clumps are red, some are grey, some are yellow and some are orange. I think to myself what a cool thing this is for my mind to fabricate.

After appreciating the flowers and failing with the UFO, I decide to fly. The wind gusts are at least 25 mph. I love flying in strong wind. I jump int he air and start flapping. I quickly gain altitude and fantastic speed as I get pulled along by the strong wind. I fly higher and higher until I realize I'm approaching cloud cover. My goal becomes obvious. Fly through the clouds. I realize that if I hold my arms at my side and rotate my arms in a tight circle that it creates a jet stream effect. I continue to do this. I enter the clouds. I'm expecting the cloud cover to be 50 -100 feet thick. I continue flying higher and higher but find myself trapped in an infinately thick cloud. I never do get to the top. After some frantic and exhausting flying I wake.

Reaching my Target Beach

I'm on the couch, trying to LD having finished up some brainwave entrainment. I feel like I need to pee so I figure I'll get up and deal with that. I see that only 16 minutes has transpired since stopping the entrainment, so I have more time to LD. Just before entering the bathroom through a  very dark hallway I bump into my dog. I simply let her pass under my legs and make my way to the toilet. I flip on the light - nothing. I try again and the switch feels a little stuck. I manage to flip it up and still - no lights. Oh ... dreaming! I'm pretty sure anyway. I make my way back to the hallway and head toward the front door. The temperature outside will be the final determining factor. I open the door and imagine a pleasant temperature and that's exactly what I get.

As I make my way down the walkway I feel like something is on my face, perhaps a pair of goggles. I also have a tunnel vision effect. I pull something off my face and the tunnel vision is gone but my eyesight is fogged over. I know how to fix this. I leap in the air and start flapping. By the time I'm 20 feet in the air my vision is clear and it's more of a daytime scene. I start flying north doing my usual backstroke technique. I'm not too mindful of my direction however and nearly crash into the big tree across the street. I decide to fly up to it and notice it's recently been pruned near its upper branches. I wonder how a tree trimmer coud have even reached these branches? I grab one and take a rest. Looking down from this persepective is a little scary. Then I remind myself it's a dream and go back to my more comfortable flying. I gain a little more altitude when I remember my original goal for the evening. Open a portal and get to my target beach. Too late for the portal ... but perhaps I can fly high enough to conjure the beach and spot it from a distance? Sure enough, after flying up another 20-30 feet I spot a large body of water. It's about 1 mile away. The water is very rough with numerous white caps. I start flying that way.

When I get there and land, the scene is of my parents old beach (shared among the homes in the development) and the tide is very low. My rock is a few hundred yards away. My old jetty is about 200-300 feet in the opposite direction. I decide to make my way to the jetty. Next I look, the scene toward the jetty has changed some. There's now a parking lot reminiscent of the lot at the public beach in that town and an old fashioned life guard chair on the beach. The jetty looks like I remember it. I feel uncomfortable around the waist and notice I'm wearing a weight training belt. I remove it and unzip my jacket. I feel better. I start walking to the jetty. There are numerous small kids playing and I am intrigued by the detail in their clothes, little flower patterns, etc ...

By the time I get to the jetty, that too has changed. Rather than a pile of jagged rocks extending out 120 feet or so, the first 30-40 feet is a nicely formed set of rocks creating a staircase. There are handrails along the rock stairs as well. I'm out of breath from all the flying and walking. I think to myself that this dream is so stable. I reflect on whether someone like the lucidity institute should do a study on whether physical activity helps wth dream stability? I get to the end of the stairway. There's a dip in the rocks. The jetty continues 6-12 inches underwater for about a 5 foot stretch. The rest of the jetty is jagged and above water. I need to get past the dip in the rocks. The kid ahead of me leaps onto an underwater rock and skips to the necessary location. I see exactly what he did but have a little trepidation over it, knowing full well that the rocks tend to be slick with sea weed and other organic substances. I gingerly try to step on the under water rock - but the dream becomes unstable and  I wake.

Hmmm ... NT leftover? No supps, no WBTB.


Random Girl at the Gym

I'm at a gym. I see M and L from our usual gym, but this setting is different. I notice that M has an odd look about him. He looks exactly as expected with the exception of some goofy 1970's Star Trek side burns. I look over to him several times trying to get a better look without his noticing me. Then it hits me. I must be dreaming? It's a low level lucidity. The fact that I'm in some strange gym I can't identify should be enough to 100% convince myself I'm dreaming. But I look for more. I walk up to M and say "Do you know you're nothing more than a projection of my mind?". He refutes this but not very convincingly. I leave him and start walking around.

As always, I take in the complexity of the scene. Sounds, sights ... it's all so real. But at the same time, I consider the fact that this is all in my mind. What to do? I start looking around for a cute girl  :angel:. There aren't any great candidates. I finally spot a girl who's cute, though with her loose black nylon pants I really can't get a great view of her body. She seems fit. I walk over and take her by the hand and help her over to an aisle behind some stairstep machines. (here's the adult part, I'm leaving out the freaky stuff anyway)



At this point, the dream get's too weird. Even for this DJ (Suffice it to say we're part of a reality TV show). I remember seeing Brittany Spears at one of the patio tables, sitting reading a book in a tiny little green dresss - minding her own business. I was thinking that for once, Brittany is the only normal person in the bunch.

G/C night. 4 days between uses. Only a modest response last night. Once decent WILD.


Blinding White Light Flight

I have a series of head and neck vibrations. Modest in strength at first and then a much stronger wave. When they stop I have my usual slightly disoriented feeling. I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. I get off the couch and notice the scene is nice and stable though - a little unusual for the first WILD of the night. I look over to the VCR clock for some more confirmation (perhaps a goofy time). The clock reads "PF". The only clock in the house with this feature to indicate power failure is the microwave, so I'm clearly dreaming.

I get up and make my way to the front door. I ntoice that the light in the bathroom is on upstairs and wonder what my wife is doing. I stop and look up. She walks over and sits on the top stair, without saying anything. I tell her "Honey, I think I'm going to do some flying now". No response. I figure her precense means something and come up with another suave suggestion ... "Unless you wanted to F*** now?". No response. OK, flying it is.

I exit via the front door and as always, it's nice and warm. I run a few feet and leap in the air with a powerful jump and easily shoot hundreds of feet in the air. My first thought is to get some momentum and dive bomb just for fun. Then I realize I can't see very well. There's a very blinding white light from the NW direction. No matter what I do I can't really avoid the way it's obscuring my vision. I try a few things including imagining a new scene - to no avail. I decide to give up and simply land. I'm a couple hundred feet from my house and jog over to it. I had left the front door cracked open and have no problem re-entering.

I hear my wife talking to someone upstairs. Hmmmm, this might get weird. I wonder who she's in bed with? I make my way upstairs and it turns out she's simply on the phone. She's wearing a sports bra and panties and she's having a business conversation of some kind. She has numerous documents scattered around. The dream starts to feel unstable so as I make my way toward her I rub my fingers to palm to create a little tactile sensation/distraction. This stabilizes things. Her call is not helping me, so I decide to distract her. I walk over and start licking her stomach and belly button. I think it starts tickling her some as she starts to giggle. She tells the person on the other side that she has to go now. She hops out of bed, gets on her knees and services me a little  :angel:.  I wake after a minute or so.

I fell asleep with my NeuroTrek blasting away at a frequency associated with conscious awareness and PSI precognition ...


Premonition Dream?

I'm having a chat with our divisions Vice President. He mentions that corporate was going to wait another week or so to see how things flush out, and would make a decision and let us know by next Tuesday. I wake (FA).

I realize I've woken and decide to look at the NT display to figure out how much time is left. Even though I'm pressing function keys, the backlight is not working. I vaguely see additional words on the display that don't belong there. I'm, confused as to why this is malfunctioning. I hear someone has entered the kitchen. It sounds like it might be my mom and I'm startled by this. I don't want her to realize I'm here  ???. I hit the power key and remove the device. However, I still feel it pulsing away on my ear lobes. Oh ... duh. Dreaming!

I feel quite disoriented, though I can move fine. My goal was to pass through a wall, though it's unclear if I'm up for that task. Maybe just a little simple flying. I make my way to the front door. The dream is becoming increasingly challenging and I'm concerned I'm going to wake. I reflect on something Clairity said not long ago that "even a short lucid is better than none" (or words to that effect). In feeling around I nearly knock over a chair. I gently help it to the ground as I don't want to wake any DC's upstairs. I'm just not in the mood to deal with DC's. I eventually make it to the front door and open it. I'm now making better physical progress, but  ironically wake.

Last night I asked my daughter what she planned to dream about. She said bears (standard answer). I told her I would try to dream about bears too. You would think that this dream would have gotton me lucid  :?


Bear in a Flannel Shirt

I'm in the backyard of a house and enter it from the rear sliding glass door. I realize I'm intruding. I hear a noise and casually toss a glass in the sink to try to look non-chalant. I've nearly exited the house before the owner sees me. He looks very hung over and unconcerned about my presence. I recognize him as Sasha Baron Cohen, but he's grown out his hair and has dred locks (sp?).

I then see a bear in the backyard. He's wearing jeans and a flannel shirt. He has a leather hat on with fake fur lining. It looks like he's drssed to go hunting. I say "Look, there's a bear in your back yard" to further create a distraction from my intrusion. The bear is just standing there not doing much. He's rather expressionless.

I then realize that Sasha is up to something illegal and I must be here to help him out. Maybe we're supposed to be trafficing drugs or something? I further realize that his day job is as an IT guy at my job and we start talking about a computer problem I'm having. I wake.

I found a video of my target beach and rock on YouTube. When I finally make it there, I'll share the video. Another attempt, pretty cool ...


Let's Try the Portal Thing Again

I have a very brief dream sequence. I first get the sense I'm on the floor with my legs up on the kitchen table, then there's a scene change and I have a view of an unfamiliar room. This stops and I realize I've woken. I lie still hoping to WILD. Sure enough, I get some decent vibrations and transition. Usual scenario, I find myself on the couch. My goal in this scenario was to open a space time portal in the wall and climb into the basement of our old house. I did this once before.

I get up and I'm very disoriented. I fall back down to the couch. I think to myself, "all these lucids, and I keep having the same dumb problems". I just relax and reset. I make my way to the wall. I turn the speaker 90 degrees and move it closer to the TV to open a nice space. I haven't done this in a while. I get on my knees and put my hands on the wall and try to feel the wall decomposing under my hands. I try for a minute with no luck. I then rest my head on the wall to take a rest. I feel the wall get soft under my head. I use my head to start pushing through, just going with this opportunity. I climb into the wall. The inside is huge blobs of thick gelatanus material. I push it and continue to try to find the exit. I determine it would be easier to be on my back and rotate that way. I finally find the exit. I realize my eyes are closed and decide to slowly open them when I'm out. Upon exiting, I'm pretty sure I can conjure the desired scene. I open my eyes ... bingo! I'm in the basement by all the weight lifting stuff.

Everything looks as it did with with two exceptions. The weight bench had its old red and white pads (we had it resurfaced black ages ago) and two paths in their finished basement had been sheetrocked over. I get excited and make my way upstairs. No one is around. I hear a dogs collar and briefly consider seeing who it is? I'm very focused on getting to my target rock however and forgo that excercise. I exit the house. The sun is to the east creating a shadow in the front yard just like IRL. Must be morning. I jump up and start flapping. I briefly hover toward a tree top to inspect the foliage. I continue toward the beach. The flight is about 1500 feet or so, maybe less. My mistake however was to fly on my back. In doing this and appreciating the sensations and view of the sky, I lost continuity with the scene under me. When I looked down again, I was somewhere else entirely. Some miscelleous stretch of beach. I enjoy the flight a little more and wake.


Couple in the Bathroom

I'm trying to WILD and feel some subtle vibrations. This experience is different though. I get a strong image of a girl. I decide to mentally reach out to her and caress her. This imagined tactile sensation stabilizes the scene and I find myself immersed in it (very unusual for me). There's a man and a woman. I get the sense they're together. But it's a dream and I don't care  ;). The girl is very cute. About 20, with long straight brown hair and bangs. She's wearing a light sweater and a short skirt. I ignore the guy and start caressing and making out with the girl. I can tell she's into it but feeling a little weird, I guess because of the guy she's with. Eventually she says "well, I guess I can give you a BJ". OK  :angel:. She starts getting undressed and I wonder why. I ask kher what the other guy is going to do ... watch her? Do her from behind? Hmmm, this might be interesting. By this time however, he's nowhere to be found.

I lean against the counter top. She's trying to find a comfortable place on the floor. There are newspapers and magazines and I figure she would just rest her knees on one of those. By now she's totally naked. She's trying to find a decent position and is on her knees bent over facing away from me. No way I'm not taking advantage of that, it's only a dream you know. I join her on the floor and use my finger to warm her up a little, though not where she's expecting  >:D. She's totally startled, as they always are. In short order I try to enter her and she keeps squirming around. I manage to get inside and when I do she's totally into it. This goes on for a while and I eventually lose lucidity.

The last thing I remember in the dream is her on top of me facing the other way. We're going at it that way and she eventually gets up. I look down and there's cum all over my stomach and chest. She rests her head on my upper chest to cuddle some. Man ... I didn't remember that orgasm at all  ???

This one is interesting only in the high level thought process which made me lucid ...


My Wife's a What?

I'm in my parents home in the family room on the south most couch. I'm looking into the hallway and notice my wife on the floor. She seems to be napping. She gets up and I realize she's naked from the waist down. She and I both seem to be concerned about the same thing? What if my parents notice? She peers around the corner and into the kitchen and must have spotted them, because she runs the other way and up the stairs, presumably to get some clothes on. I admire her butt as she jogs away.

I look over to the floor in the same spot as before and my wife is on the floor napping again. I think to myself that I just witnessed a forking point in the space time continuum. I then realize that's impossible, why would I be a constant with time wrapping and forking off like that? I must be dreaming? My wife gets up again and walks over to me. I'm completely startled. This time around she has on an Arab style turbin and is wearing a bushy fake black beard. My wife's an Arab  O_O?  I wake.

5 days between G/C uses. Good response. All of these were WILDS or DEILDS


Trying the Wall Thing Again

I feel like I'm dozing off and focus my mental energy at my 3rd eye. Immediately vibrations start. They remain subtle but steady for about 30 seconds. They end and I believe I'm dreaming. I do my usual VCR clock check and it's blank. I decide to try going through the wall again, but imagining my target beach on the other side. I move the speaker and make some space. I remembered my other useful trick I used to use and apply it here. While on my knees I have my hands on the wall. I imagine the wall getting soft underneath and gently rotate my hands, almost massaging the wall. This works well and the wall gets like jello. I push in. I'm in this void between my previous location and the target. Lots of soft gelatin like blobs to push through. I get to the end and lift the final blob. I'm in a dark forest like area (there are woods right before the beach) but the scene decomposes. I wake.


Flying and an Odd Ending  ???

I'm on the couch and fell like I may have transitioned. I look over to the VCR and it's blank. It feels so real though. Well, one way to find out is to go outside. If it doesn't feel like -5 F ... I'm dreaming. I open the door to the porch imagining a balmy pleasant temperature and that's what I get. I run and leap in the air. It's windy which makes for my favorite type of flying experience. I decide to make my way north to see if I can conjure the beach. It's a pleasant flight but I can't spot anything unusual. I decide to land. On making my descent there's a DC waiting to greet me. I figure I'll see what he wants. He explains we met when I first moved here and asks if I remember him. During the conversation my daughter some how shows up and is walking next to me. The conversation gravitates toward one of extortion. He seems to have some bad info on me and wants payment to stay quiet. He suggests that he'll find and hurt my father if I don't. This pisses me off. There's one more guy at the intersection, his partner presumably. When I get there I agree to his terms. He goes over to his buddy to tell him. I use this opportunity to take off the heavy shirt I'm wearing to better free up my arms. I walk over to him and as he turns ... pop him in the face. He bends down in pain and I deliver two more right upper cuts. I bend over and bite his nose off (the first bite didn't get enough so I took another). The other guy looks over to me but wants nothing to do with it. I wake.


Wall, One More Time

I get off the couch convinced I'm dreaming and head to the wall. I have some trouble moving the speaker again but manage. As before, I decompose the wall and crawl in. I feel like I'm in a tunnel. I hear the ocean which is a good sign. I'm pushing and looking around. At one point I see what looks like a picture of a naked woman from stomach to neck. I try to imagine the picture more 3-D but fail. I wake.


Hmmm, Who's Sleeping in My Bed?

I'm on the couch and believe I've transitioned again. It's dark in the room and when I open my eyes my wife is on her computer and my daughter is playing on the floor. I walk over to my wife and kiss her and suggest we go upstairs. She says she's too busy with work. I ask again but get the same answer. Then it dawns on me that perhaps I can just conjure someone else if she isn't into it. I head upstairs and become convinced that one of our hotty friends from the gym will be there. I have 3 or 4 preferences  :angel:. I make my way upstairs and can see into the bedroom. There's definately someone in bed but I can't make it out from here. I get over excited and  wake.


LB from High School

I look to the clock andd it's 7:00 am which is reasonable, but the clock has red numbers? Hmmm, dreaming? Same deal, I head outside to confirm. It's very nice outside which convinces me I'm dreaming. I try to prevent the dog from following but she does anyway. I head toward the front yard. My dog starts barking and chasing some oherr animals. I let her be. There's a modest amount of snow on the ground and a misty rain coming down. It's early morning. I enjoy the serenity of the scene and the feeling of the light rain. I decide to fly and run along the driveway to gain speed but have trouble. I use my hands to pull myself along the driveway and leap. I do some low level flying.

Eventually I gain better altitude and find myself staring up at the sky. It dawns on me that if I imagine a rope hanging from the sky I might be able to pull myself up? I try this and it works only marginally well. I start descending and there's a scene change. I'm in a building and there's a small table with two guys sitting there. They seem to want payment for something and I hand them a piece of paper hoping they'll be faked out by my gesture. They seem content. I leave that room and enter a large room which has a fraternity house feel to it, lot's of lounge chairs, very messy, etc ...   An asian guy starts talking to me about patents. I have a hard time understanding him but think he might have something important to offer? I ultimately explain to him that if you're doing one for a company you work for that you won't get much benefit from it. By now, many other guys are seated at the table listening to us. I feel the dream getting unstable and tell them I must go now. I wish them well and say goodbye telling them I must leave this world now. I exit the room and enter another.

This new room is a bar. It's very busy and there's a fair number of woman  ;). I decide to find an attractive one. The search is not an easy one ::). I finally find a waitress who looks like LB from high school (age appropriate looking but still cute). I take her by the hand and we enter a small booth and close the door. It's understood that she's going to service me and I ask if I should sit or stand. She suggests that I sit. I pull down my pants and underwear and do just that. She starts playing with me. I'm a little distracted with the noise from the bar and the possibility that we might get disturbed. I'm not aroused yet. Then she says something more troubling. "Look, there's something inside it". I tell her that's just where the pee comes out. She then starts telling me that she might have cancer. I start scratching her back to comfort her and to try to get the dream back on track. She starts doing this swirly tongue thing around the head of my penis and that feels really good. I get very aroused and I'm enjoyng it. However, I wake at this point.

 :chuckle: God bless you MB. You make me laugh. And yes, blowjobs are the answer to most problems.

Hey, on a different note ... I just received a shipment of some African Dream Root. You ever try? I haven't done it in a while. The dreams it facilitates are just epic. I'm interested to see how it jives with the BW entrainment method. I think that will be really interesting. I'll keep you aprised.

Which root are you taking and what is your source?  I got some African Dream Root, Silene Capensis and I had no experiences with it. 

I crushed it and put it into water.  Stirred vigorously ... (froth was supposed to come up but didn't) and drank.     Did this in the morning and nothing that night.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical January 16, 2009, 10:53:54 AM
Yes, Silene Capensis.

Use 1/2 teaspoon on an empty stomach in the morning. Do this three days straight. The alkaloids slowly build up. Exceeding this dose or number of days leads to poor sleep when too much is in your system.

By the second or third night you will start to have awesome dreams. Very stable, epic type of dreams.

It doesn't do much for lucidity though I have had lucids on it. But it's an awesome tool for dream enhancement. I have another technique I'd like to combine with it.

Is That Kid Yours?

I wake while wearing my NeuroTrek. I realize I've been sleeping for a while and decide to check the time. 45 minutes remain. I figure I've done enough and decide to remove it. I get a very subtle feeling that I might still be dreaming. I look over to the VCR clock as a quick reality check. There's just one green vertical line. Hmmm. I remove the NT, get up and take a closer look. The numbers are all washed out and very faint. I decide to use my usual wintertime dream confirmation method - I head outside hoping for warm weather.

I exit and it's a wonderfully warm night. I lose sight of my preconceived goal and decide to just do some flying. I make my way to the driveway, run and leap in the air. I get caught on a bush and it stops my progress. I then see a small pocket of snow coming down. It's restricted to a radius of about 20 feet. It's only snowing in this one spot. This is very interesting to watch and I'm reminded of Moonbeams comment about how there are lots of weather events in my lucids. I run and try again and this time get some altitude. It becomes quite windy and I get tossed around and just let the wind dictate the flight for a while. At one point I'm approaching some power lines but use my arms and legs to guide myself over them without a collision.

As is usually the case, I get a little lost in the blissfulness of the sensations. When I look down again I'm over a city street which reminds me of NYC. One guy is handing out flyers. I swoop down and grab one with my feet and hover over him just enough so he can't reach me. I'm looking for a reaction (disbelief, anger ... ?) but never really get one. I get to an area where different street vendors are selling stuff. A cute girl catches my eye. I sw0op down and land. She's got tiny little short shorts and a little belly shirt on. I say to her "hey, that's nice". She looks over to me and says "that's nice too". I then notice a small child of about 5. A little boy. I ask if it's hers and she says yes. I get a little weirded out by hitting on this kids mom while he's around. Not to mention where this is all no doubt going  :angel:.  I wake.

I look down at the NT and there's 45 minutes remaining.

Supplemental:

I wanted to describe the dream that lead to the false awakening above. First some backgound.

I have a friend J would sent me a resume to apply for a job where I work. They decided to bump up one of the internal people (CS) and he never did get the job but I held onto his resume. The dream:

I'm back at my old fraternity house and I'm a senior. I drew top pick for rooms and I'm moving into the only bedroom on the first floor. It's bigger than I remember it. Very spacious. I'm taking a bath and the door is wide open. CS happens to be there peering in. Things were always very casual in the house and I'm not too concerned or self conscious about her seeing me naked.

Here's what interesting. Call it a coincidence if you like. This morning, my wife had to borrow my car because hers wouldn't start. This left me car less and unable to get my usual saturday morning workout in. It hit me that maybe I should call someone? I remembered that my friend J usually works out about the same time but I didn't have his number or even his last name. Then it hit me. I have his resume. I pulled up my work e-mail, retrieved it and gave him a call. He was happy to cart me and my daughter over to the gym.

While I was working out, it hit me that it was such a weird thing for CS to be in one of my dreams. I rarely see her. I'm not attracted to her per say? Then I realized the connection to looking up my friend, who lost a job opportunity to her.

Coincidence? Perhaps?

Supplement to the Supplement:

Hey MB. Isn't it a little weird that I saw street vendors in NYC selling stuff. Much like the street vendors in that wacky detachable penis video?

You Never Know What's on the Other Side of the Wall

I break out of a brief and non significant dream. I realize I've woken and simply stay still. I focus my awareness at my 3rd eye.  I get a nice wave of head vibrations going and ride it out, transitioning back into my dreamspace. I roll off the couch and sanity check the VCR which has a washed out time. Definately dreaming. I'm about to open the door to go flying when I remember my main goal. Space time portal to the beach. I head to the kitchen to grab my wand. I then realize I have some metal piping wrapped around my legs and I cant move well. I relax and take my time finding my way out of this contraption. I enter the kitchen and find my wand. It's actually not in the precise location I left it which makes me question who moved it? But I do find it and put it in my pants pocket and put my shirt over it for safe keeping. I head to the wall.

I move the speaker and notice 5 small pictures arranged in rows of two and three. They are right where I need to put my left hand. I ignore them and carry on anyway. Within moments, I have the wall decomposed and I push my way in, imagining the beach I'm trying to get to. Once I'm in, I briefly have a visual of the beach at night, but then that image fades. I'm soon trapped in this black void of nothingness. It's that weird state between my dream and waking worlds. Some would be frightened by this state, but I actually quite like it. It's very peaceful floating in black nothingness. I figure I'll soon wake.

Rather than waking however, I soon feel a large blanket over my body. I liken it to waking and pull the blanket over to expose myself. I open my eyes and I'm in an unfamiliar room. Then it hits me. This looks like the room in the very first house we lived in. I'm trying to rationalize this and frankly the transtion to this place confuses me a little. I wake.


Weird Visionary State

I again wakek from a dream and stay still. I focus on my third eye. I feel some subtle vibrations. But more interestingly, I see a bright white light. The light gets brighter and larger until it's consuming my entire field of vision behind closed eyes. It then lifts up and to the left. A scene starts to form. It's an open field. The sun has replaced the white light and there's a rainbow to my left. There are trees several hundred yards away creating a perimeter. I realize my eyes are closed and this is more like a vision than a dream. I wonder how I can help it along and turn it into a full blown WILD. I slowly open my eyes ... but this wakes me.

I'm not even sure what to make of this. The second dream is the significant one (though the first had an interesting element). I will say upfront that my dog seems to be fine. I've already been on the web and it appears she had an epileptic seizure. This is characterized by passing out, then flailling around and having breathing problems. Finally a very rigid state where arms and legs are extended and stiff. She developed a good deal of foam at the mouth. She was disoriented for about the next hour and very nervous. We did the right thing which was simply comfort her. Apparently there isn't much you can proactively do. I'll take her to the vet this morning.


Hanging at the Fraternity House  (woke at 12:45)

I'm behind the bar and Mike K makes a comment about my appearance. I look in a mirror and my hair is pretty disheveled. He makes a joke about this and then asks when I'm going to get old? I make my way over to the pool table and decide to hop up onto it. The conversation with Mike K continues. He suggests that you really need to enjoy your job. I confide in him that I don't ever see that happening. I get up and notice another pool table that has several levels to it, like a multidimensional version of billiards.

I make my way over to a few other people. Sharon and Mike C are there. Mike is onrolling one joint and working on making one larger joint. I figure I'll hang around since I'm sure they will offer some. There's a scene change at this point. We're on top of a skyscraper and Mike C is still there. He hands me some binoculars and asks if I want to look at the buildings. We're both checking out the new trump building. I then notice another building which is quite beautiful and almost as high. It is a weird hybrid between and asian style and a more Chicago modern style.

Another scene change. I'm in India with my childhood friend Mike S (mike had cerebral palsy and had very rigid legs and poor control of his body and coordination in general). We are walking along and come to the edge of a road. There's a 5 foot drop to another road. Mike jumps from the higher road taking a huge chance. I'm very concerned for his well being and think to myself that he's taking a huge chance. He's disoriented but manages to get up. His legs are still stiff and I think to myself that perhaps he's dying and he just wants to try to live a normal life (for whatever is left of it)? We continue walking up this second road. There's an Indian festival of some kind going on. Lot's of partying and dancing. I see my daughter up ahead. She's with strangers but I trust the situation completely. She's also dancing, spinning around and seems very happy. I think to myself that we'll have to remind her of this trip later is she's too young to remember it later.


My Dog is Sick (woke at 3:15)

I'm working at my laptop at the kitchen table. My dog starts getting sick. First a repetitive heaving of her stomach which is a precursor to puking. Then she vomits a little but it's mostly foam. I get up to clean it. I'm a little pissed. I notice several other spots of dried vomit on the carpet and hard wood floor. My dad is here and trying to help, but he apparently doesn't notice any of the spots which further pisses me off. They're so obvious.


My dogs seizure was at 3:55

That is very strange.  Was she sleeping with you when you had the dream?  Do you think she was acting weird and you somehow sensed it?  Was she acting normally up until the time of the seizure?

I hope she is OK.

She was not acting weird at all. Sunday was normal. My wife and I were sleeping in bed and she was sleeping on her dog bed a few feet away.

She's never had this happen before. She's almost 9. I hope this is an isolated incident. It's been 3 hours now and she seems 100%, but apparently that's normal.

UPDATE: Right now our dog couldn't be happier. Perfectly normal. Teh concern of course is that this might be the start of a more serious problem. Bloodwork and urinalysis in progress.

Early evening low level lucid ...

In an Asylum

I'm in what appears to be an old abandoned asylum. I make it to the stairwell which has multiple levels. There's lots of furniture and other crap blocking the path and I'm trying to find the way out. I finally manage to exit the building. While the building was in disrepair, the grounds are very nice, almost like an well kept english garden. Just by the overall sense of how I'm moving and my depth perception, I realize I'm dreaming. I see a chain link fence and figure I'll hop over it and leave the grounds.

I run up to the fence and decide to leap over it. I just barely make it, momentarily grabing onto the barbed wire at the top and letting myself fall to the other side. What to do next? Just then, Captain Picard from Star Trek TNG runs this way. He's still on the other side of the fence and wants to escape the aslyum as well.

Scene change + lose lucidity. I'm at work and I'm having "the" conversation w/ MA our HR lady. She doesn't literally tell me I'm being let go and explain to me all the HR related ramifications. Instead she simpy explains I probably shouldn't buy a new house anytime soon. She then starts explaining to me that she loves me and is very concerned. She pulls out some information on anorexia. I'm like "you know M, there aren't too many people who have a better handle on their body and control of it than I do". I tell her not to worry.

Another scene change. I walking along the hall at work. I realize I'm dreaming, again based on the way I'm moving (kind of dragging my legs) and the weird depth perception where eveything looks a little longer than it really is. I see a girl about 100 feet away. I decide to walk over to her and grab her to stabilize the dream, but I wake before executing that plan.


High level lucid on G/C, but 7 days between uses was too much. I couldn't sleep at all after waking from my first G induced lucid:


Just Some Nasty Sex

I'm on the couch trying to sleep. I realize that all the lights are on in the TV room and kitchen. No wonder I can't sleep. I get up to turn them off. While in the kitchen I note the time as 4:20. After turning off the kitchen light I realize the LR light is on as well and make my way to turn that one off too. However I notice that the room is longer than it is in reality. Hmmm, dreaming again? I go back to the kitchen and confirm the time as 4:13 and the clock is in red. I head back toward the front of the house and hear the shower running upstairs. I decide to investigate. The door is closed and I'm not sure what to expect. I remove my pants and underwear and try to remove my shirt but there are several layers and I'm slighty sweaty. I figure this is too much work and just enter the bathroom.

I'm kind of hoping it's AL from work. This way I can kill two birds with one stone (sex and pump her for info on what the hell is going on - yes pun intended). I pull the shower curtain ... and it's my wife. I kiss and fondle her a little. I help her out of the shower. I then warm her up with my finger a little, it's very tight and I wonder how the hell I'm going to get in there. She gives me the "oh no, not again look". I enter her from behind while we're still standing. At this point the shower curtain has conveniently become a mirrored shower door and we're watching ourselves. She usually gets into it eventually and today is no expection. She starts working herself manually and I tell her it would really turn me on to watch her come. This goes on for about 5 minutes or so. Nice and stable.

Eventually we get tired and just lie on the floor. The dream is still quite stable and I ponder the question of what the hell dreams even are. At this point I'm looking for attention again and ask her to finish my orally. By now she's someone else entirely. Who cares? I direct her head in the appropriate direction  :angel:. This goes on for a bit more but I wake before finishing. As usual  :'(

Hey DrTechnical.

I'm almost a little embarrassed to say it, because I don't think it's possible to know the future, but I get these weird things like that too. The resume dream you had is a great example. For example, I'll dream I'm talking to a particular person while there's a certain thing on TV. Usually about 2 days later, I'll be watching TV, the thing comes on, and then I hear from the person. Something weird like that. And when it happens there's this weird déjà vu feeling. I don't know, I'm probably imagining it.

Man, that's really strange with your dog. I really hope she's ok. I know some dogs live otherwise normal lives with seizures.

: DrTechnical January 23, 2009, 06:57:58 AM
My Dog is fine, perfectly normal. But most possible causes of the seizure have been ruled out. A brain tumor is one likely scenario left, which is disturbing given my dream logic that my friend Mike S may be dying?

: Clairity January 23, 2009, 04:39:24 PM
I will say upfront that my dog seems to be fine. I've already been on the web and it appears she had an epileptic seizure. This is characterized by passing out, then flailling around and having breathing problems. Finally a very rigid state where arms and legs are extended and stiff. She developed a good deal of foam at the mouth. She was disoriented for about the next hour and very nervous. We did the right thing which was simply comfort her. Apparently there isn't much you can proactively do. I'll take her to the vet this morning.

Dr. T, I came downstairs yesterday morning and found my 18 year old dog laying on the floor in her own urine having a seizure. She couldn't see, she couldn't hear, she didn't know where she was and when she finally got up.. she kept walking in circles or into the walls.

I finally realized that she'd had an epileptic seizure and gave her one of her phenabarb pills. I stayed home from work to watch over her, called the vet and she confirmed that it probably was an epileptic seizure and to just see how she does the rest of the day.  My dog had been on medication for over 10 years and my new vet wanted me to ween her off of the pills.. which evidently triggered the seizure.

I was soo freakin' scared and sad when I found her that morning.. I thought I'd have to make the decision to put her down and I am just not ready to face that yet.

Thankfully she seems to be back to her normal self.. no residual harm done! I'm so glad your doggie is alright too! :hug:

Oh, and I put her back on her meds.. she's too old to have to deal with withdrawal and possible seizures (which I had mentioned to the vet when she told me to ween her off). :?

Day 2 of another ADR cycle. My recall was pretty average for a weekend night. I decided to sleep in and not try to LD. I woke at 5:00 and couldn't get back to sleep anyway. Pretty odd dreams though.


Am I in Heaven?

I'm in an office building. It appears to be a multi-story building with outer offices and an inner core where there are labs, etc ... I'm at a job interview for a Proj Management position and someone is showing me around. The inside of the building is pure white. The walls, the floor, the ceiling and so forth. It's almost like a scene on TV where they would be representing heaven. The walls are bare - perhaps pictures are not allowed? I open an office door and there's someone inside. I apologize and close the door again. I then realize that the door and everything else in here is made of styrofoam. This strikes me as odd but not impossible.


1100 Hz Spike

I'm in a classroom and a teacher walks in very vigorously. He draws a picture on the chalkboard of a spectral response with a huge peak agt 1100 Hz. The plot goes out to about 2000 Hz or so with some small high and low band energy. He write "late breaking information". I then recognize him as LT, one of my old bosses. He starts up on a very philosophical discussion on his existence, quoting various buddhist concepts. He starts talking about how the data showed evidence of a complex conjugate. The mathematical orthogonality seemed to imply a parallel or dual existence of his being. (NOTE - 1100 Hz jumps out at me as a fax caling tone, the on/off cadence a calling fax sends at start up).


Pork Sandwhich

I'm hanging with several friends I believe to be from college. We're at one of their homes and his mom is fixing me something to eat. She offers a tiny cup of vegtable soup and a small cold pork sandwhich using a half eaten role. It's very unappealing but I pretend to appreciate it. Meanwhile, she is making toaster tray after toaster tray of food for herself, going through a fair amount of trouble in the process. There's an ad cut-out from a newspaper. The ad is for a billiards hall but there's a vague reference to other services. They explain to me that it doubles as a brothel and that's where we're going tonight.


Porn Fragment

I'm watching some porn and my wife walks in. She decides to have a seat and watch as well. It's a girl/girl scene. They're not to far into it - just some kissing and breast fondling. My wife asks "so if I brought another girl home, this is what you would want me to do with her?". I acknowledge.


Dancing Rainbow Lights

I'm outside and see a beautiful rainbow pattern of lights in the air just above the middle of the backyard. There are discrete blocks of light arranged in rows and columns, but the pattern is not rectangular. At random times, one or two blocks will break from the pattern, fly away in an arc and return to it's original position. Each block is perhaps 3' x 6'. It's dazzling to watch. I then realize it must be coming from the projection TV. I wonder how that light projection is leaking from the TV set?

I used it about 1.5 - 2 years ago, originally. I do remember the response diminishing when I used it more frequently. I also definately remember poor sleep if I used it too many days straight.

I think every 3 weeks or so for a 3 day cycle would be fine. I used it agan this week because I uh ... simply couldn't resist  :).

What a crazy night of lucid dreaming. Usual G/C dose after a 4 day break. What I had would best be described as a chain of lucids that lasted about 45-60 minutes, can't say exactly. No segment was more than 5-10 minutes. But every time one would end, I would have a DEILD or WILD into another. My WILDS were more the traditional kind with imagery forming around me and an immersion into the scene. I lost awareness once or twice and had DILDs very quickly. The only problem here is remembering 45 min+ of dreaming without significant wake periods and locking in what happened.

The only noteworthy point is that I used African Dream Root Thurs morning - Sat morning and no doubt still had some in my system. Dream highlights in rough order:


- Standard WILD transition with vibrations. I have a goal in mind but I transition and find my wife on the couch too. She follows me I realize she's probably not up for passing through walls and teleporting in space time. So instead we have sex in the kitchen  :angel:.

- I'm in a small office trying to doze. I realize I'm dreaming. A woman walks in and won't leave me be. She's too busy trying to get work done. We have sex  :angel:.

- I'm in a room with a half done puzzle. It has perhaps 100 pieces. My daughter is with me and we decide to work on the puzzle. This lasts for a while. The whole time I'm mesmerized by the complexity of this lucid task. The way the puzzle pieces fit together and the way they form an actual picture was just incredible. It was a nature scene.

- I find myself in a large house and head outside. It's a warm evening and I decide to fly. I realize upon getting altitude that I'm over a beautiful old fashioned European village. I enjoy the village scene and surounding mountainside as I fly for a while.

- I'm apparently a director of a movie. We're doing a scene with a woman who looks like a young Sophia Loren. She is doing a poor job and we break. Apparently I decide that it would help her relax if she got on her knees and serviced me in front of everyone ( sex in front of a lot of other people and not caring is a milestone for me). After a while one of the female set crew joins in and it gets very kinky  :angel:.

- I find myself in my parents old house and decide to fly to the beach to try to get to my rock. It's a very dark evening. As my flight progresses I'm along the beach and the scene becomes very pastel and pyschadelic, for lack of a better way to describe it. I ultimately find myself over deeper water and an aircraft carrier comes by. I shoot up to a platform and climb aboard. Scene change. I sit at a table with some strangers and they offer me some wine. After having a few sips I excuse myself. I start walking around and it dawns on me I haven't been with a black woman yet in my lucid dreams. I'm walking along some quiet city corridors when thinking this, and in no time a very hot black gal walks over. Uh ... we have sex  :angel:. (another milestone)

G/C night. My first lucid was a new experience. First time I pulled that one off (A WILD were I determined the scene I wanted to find myself in apriori).


Creating a Scene

I'm settling in with my G/C levels around their peak. I'm trying to sleep and get some serious HI. At one point I have a very brief non-lucid dream. When I wake I have more HI, more like full scenes than just lights or discrete images. First I'm in my parents house with that scene forming around me. It subsides. Then I recognize the living room in our old house. I reach out and touch the furniture. I lose the scene. I then run that scene in my mind purposely. I imagine myself walking around the living room table, touching the chairs and table. The scene forms around me once or twice but I lose it again. Finally ... the scene forms and stabilizes. I'm immobile during the transition, but can move again once I'm engulfed in the scene.

I'm still not 100% mobile. I decide to head outside and try to fly to my target rock. The flight itself is not spectacular. I lose my vision and lose the dream pretty quick. But cool transition none the less.


Just Some Really Cool Flying

I'm on the couch and find a bag of dog poo of all things. I grab it and toss it over to the kitchen counter. Then I ask the obvious question. Why is dog poo on the couch? I look over to the clock and it's blank. Oh, dreaming. OK, my goal is to go upstairs and open a space/time portal in the bathtub wall. I make my way to the stairwell. When I get there my wife is clearly in the bathroom, a complication I didn't need. Of course I could go up and have sex with her (I was hoping that if she was up she would have brought a friend  ;) ). Unfortunately, she's complaining about how stuffed up she is and cursing up a storm. It's so real. If I'm dreaming, I don't want to deal with the situation. If I'm not, I'll be equally unwelcomed. I head back to the Den to open my space time/portal there.

When I try to new location, I can't decompose the wall for the life of me. I try it kneeling and then standing. I start to question if I'm really dreaming or not. I head back to the stairwell. K is still up there bitching away. OK, all of my preconceived plans are dead in the water. I decide to go out to fly. I exit from the back door and I'm greated with nice warm weather - at least I'm 100% sure it's a dream now. I leap in the air and flap and gain nice altitude. I change flying style to more of a superman style and make my way around some. I look up to the night sky. It's full of stars. I'm at about the height of the tree tops at this point and the overall three dimensionality of the scene and realness of the scene is mesmerizing.

Eventually, I make my way over to an office buidling. There's a worker on a stairwell. I hover over him looking for a reaction. He ignores me. I ask him whether he thinks it's unusual that a guy is flying in the air just a few feet from him? He tells me it's not that odd  ???. I contuinue flying for a while and finally wake.

IDK MB. I think your WILDing abilities are roughly equivalent to my own? Didn't you pull off some visualization stuff recently like imagining you're flying and that worked for you?

It seems important to do the touchy/feely stuff too. I had forgotten when I wrote up my dreams, that I almost pulled off another tactile induced WILD prior to the one I describe. I need to work on this method. It seems promising. It seems like the trick is to not force it. You sort of need to go with the flow of the scene creation. My instincts are to fight my way in once I'm close. That doesn't work.

I had no specific goals in mind. I just felt like playing it by ear last night.


Weird OOBE

I just left work and I'm walking to my car. I have nothing on but a pair of shorts and a T-shirt, not even shoes or socks. I left the car in the north lot and it's a sizeable walk. Something seems wrong and I double check that I have my keys and wallet. In the meantime, I keep steping on what seems to be frozen goose droppings. It kind of hurts. I close in on the car when it hits me that it's very warm out. Maybe 75 F or so. Dreaming! I start looking around and realize it's too dark to see much of anything. I decide to simply fly. I start flapping and gain some altitude. It's still quite dark and I'm wondering when my sight will improve.

After flying in the dark some, the strangest thing happens. There's a scene change but it's gradual enough to see the scene sort of form around me. I'm now floating at the top of my TV room, directly over where my physical body would be sleeping. I have very poor control of the floating and try to turn several times to see my body and/or the supposed silver cord that might be attached from the back of my head to my physical body. I finally manage to turn and the couch is empty. Neither my dog or I are there. I start to gain some control of the flight and manage to get to the doorway that leads to the dining room. I hook a leg around the wall trying to gain control of my position, but in stuggling  I wake.


Gardens of Versailles

I'm walking in my house from the kitchen to the dining room when it simply dawns on me I must be dreaming. My mom has just gotten up and says good morning. It's still dark out. I don't find it unusual that she's in the house but still get a sense I should pay reasonable attention to her just in case I'm not dreaming. Then I notice a small digital clock with red numbers on the desk - another obvious dreamsign. I decide to forgo chatting with mom and leave through the front door.

It's very dark out and I need to feel my way around. I reach out and bump directly into the crab apple tree. I make my way to the driveway and drop to my knees. I touch the pavement and use my sense of smell to help the scene stabilize and become more pronunced. It does. I continue toward the street. Again, I start to lose the dream and try the same approach. This time, the scene becomes a daytime scene with lots of brilliant colors. I look east and there's the oddest tree at a distance of 1000 feet or so. It's bare of leaves which is normal but the shape is very unnatural. It then breaks apart and falls to the ground. Then there are a sequence of scenes where the clouds quickly role by and cover up the sun, only to continue on and create sunny skies again, as quickly as they came. The next event is odd. There are a series of fireworks explosions which form patterns which look much like the tree I describe earlier. I ponder what this vision means and I get the sense it's a premonition that there will be a terror attack during the Obama inaugaration (No, it doesn't dawn on me that the event is past tense). 

After the interesting visuals stop, I turn to the west and start walking. There's a complete scene change. I'm now in a huge contemporary house. It has a very high ceiling and skylight. I decide to fly through it but my angle is wrong and I miss. I then fly to the other side of the house and right through a glass window without any glass stretching, breaking or other odd effects. I realize I'm now flying over a beautiful garden which reminds me of the grounds of the Versailles Palace in France. After taking in the view some, I decide to land and chat with a DC. I'm looking or a good candidate when I realize there's a weather beaten cement statue of a frog playing a horn of some kind. It looks very lifelike. I then notice the frog moving some. It's not actually playing music but it's definately alive. I get excited that I have a chance to chat with a statue. But at this point I wake.

Failed Attempt at the Feb Intermediate Task

At some point I start dreaming that I've woken in the TV room and need to get back to sleep to try to LD. Some Queensryche is playing on the stereo but I leave it on since it's not too loud. As soon as I hit the couch I feel vibrations and a lifting feeling. When those sensations stop I figure I'm dreaming. I do my usual sanity check of the VCR clock and it's all washed out.

I have two ideas for this task. For the first one, I slowly reach down into my pants in an attempt to morph myself into a woman. I get to the crucial area imagining I would find a clit. Nope, just the usual equipment. Out of pure instinct I play with it some but realize I can do that later. I move on to my next idea.

I go into the refrigerator and pull out a pear. I was going to use my magic wand to turn it into some other fruit. Then it dawns on me I could turn the pear itself into a magic wand. My thought was to roll it like a piece of play-doh and form it into a magic wand. Anything is possible in a dream, right? I start squeezing the pear and it's not very pliable. I imagine it getting soft in my hands and that works to a degree. It now feels over ripe. But in squeezing it, pear juice starts flying everwhere. I bring it over to the counter to contain the mess, just in case I'm not dreaming. Before long, there is pear juice dripping from the cabinets and a puddle on the countertop. I walk over to the sink and let it drip. I take a bite. It tastes exactly like pear. I ponder what I could have done differently, but wake.


Do you Like my ****?

I'm in my parents new house and need to use the bathroom. I enter the one in the hallway. There's cabinetry over the toilet and it's hard to get the seat down. The seat is also way too high. This strikes me as odd but not impossible. I finally manage.

At some point, I look to my left and there's a man sitting next to me on a chair. I'm no longer in my folks bathroom. It's more like a public restroom and his presence makes me a little uncomfortable. I then look up and forward. I appear to be in an airport. I look about 100 feet forward and there's a sign to a mens room. I'm not even IN a bathroom! I'm at the end of the terminal at the final gate, sitting on something that isn't even a toilet anymore. There are numerous people walking around. Then it finally hits me. Dreaming!

I stand up. I have on a shirt but no pants. I figure I'll walk around some and try to get a reaction. The first person I come to is a guy. I ask him "do you like my cock?". He just walks away. There are two cute woman about twenty feet away. I make eye contact with them in an alternating fashion and neither wants anything to do with me. I make my way over and converge to the unlucky gal. Same question ... "Do you like my cock?". Against her seeming better judgement, she looks down. She says "Ooooo ... it's so big, but sometimes it's not good when they're too big".

At this point, I've had enough and go out to fly. I note a doorway and make my way over. The dream starts to become unstable. When I get to the door I take a good feel of the texture of the door and take in the smells of the outside air. There's another DC staring at me but I choose to ignore her. I take a running start and leap in the air. I get altitude and then do some nice leisurely back stroke flying. It's a scene which reminds me of Pennsylvania. After a few miniutes of flying I wake (FA).

I'm in my old college fraternity house but it's been fixed up some (in PA, that's the connection). There are a bunch of female cooks preparing a banquet since we have a formal tonight. I decide to forgo breakfast right now and look for my laptop so I can write up my dreams. I also might take some ADR. I go upstairs bummed that I'm back in college and not with my wife and daughter, but figure they can attend the formal. I wake.

ADR cycle - noteable dreams (long, contiguous, thought provoking for some reason, etc ...)

Day 1

I enter NG for a job interview. The woman at reception asks why I changed my phone number and I explain I was layed off. They seem happy to see me and I'm lead to a room. I sit down and the first interviewer (a woman) hasn't really spent any time reviewing my resume and takes a few minutes to read it while I wait quietly seated at her desk. I look out the window. We're on the first floor. There's a small parking lot and a main road, perhaps 2 lanes in each direction. The distance to the road is modest at about 75 feet.


Day 2

I'm in my house and my wife has a jar with some brain material in a fluid of some kind (meant to preserve the brain pieces I guess). I ask what it is and she tells me it was my cancer that was removed. She then asks if I don't remember that event. I tell her I have no recollection of that what so ever. When I reflect on this it's actually very frightening. I feel my head to see if there are any imperfections in the skull or odd hair growth due to surgery. There aren't any. I'm baffled by this but I do believe my wife and figure whatever portion of brain was removed, took my memories along with it. I look at the jar again and it's a pretty big portion.

**********

I'm in a yard and run to avoid a tiger. A while later I come back. There are two baby tigers who seem quite helpless and I feel sorry for them since their mother is going to have to be killed. You can't have a tiger roaming around like this. I walk to the other side of the house and see the tiger again. I hope she didn't see me. I walk back toward the babies and the mother did in fact see me and comes running. I climb a tree and figure that should provide some safety. The tiger climbs up and nearly gets me. I grab it's paws and roll the claws of the tree branch and throw the tiger off the tree. I hear a big thud and assume she's dead. Later, I return to that spot and ask my wife where the tiger is. She tells me she can't believe that I killed my pet. I told her there was no choice - the tiger would have killed me if I didn't defend myself.

NOTE - it hit me much later that the brain cancer dream along with killing my pet, taken together, is a potential reference to my dog who coud potentially have a brain tumor which might have caused her seizure a few weeks back.

We're in wait and see mode. She's been fine for a few weeks now. Most of the potential stuff was ruled out via the bloodwork and urinalysis. Tumor is a pretty good bet at this point.

We could do an MRI and spend a few thousand in the process but what do we do with that info? Spend god knows how much trying to remove something with little idea what the outcome would be?

If she has another seizure, I'll put her on medication. Supposedly it does a pretty good job of controlling the intensity of such events. But then they need to stay on it forever.

Day 3 of my ADR cycle + NT. In short ... too stimulating. Every dream I had from the time I fell asleep with the NT on, to finally starting my day was very short. I kept dreaming, waking, dreaming, waking ...   3 non-spectacular lucids:


More College Dreams

I'm in college and I am getting ready to take a shower. There's a shared bathroom on the dorm floor but it only has one bathtub and nowhere to shower. I exit the room a little confused. There's a complete scene change at this point and I'm walking toward my parents bathroom to return a towel. I drop it off and think to myself that I need to remove my NT now. I look down and 28 minutes remain, that's enough. I remove it and leave their room. I'm pleased that I had a lucid with it on and then can't remember what the hell I dreamed about? I get the sense it's about 5 in the morning and it's odd my parents weren't in their room? It finally hits me. Dreaming! As soon as I realize this, it strikes me that I'm in their old NY house and I start to float. I grab the hand rail of the stairs and try to make my way downstairs. In trying to gain stability I struggle too much and wake.


Predator Attack (Inspired by watching 10 min of Alien vs Predator Late Night)

I'm watching a scene which is supposedly a live broadcast of a Predator creature attacking a building. He keeps firing waves of energy at the base of a 20 story building. Each blast does a fair amount of damage but I'm unclear why he's aiming for the base. The scene then changes and my perspective is right next to the Predator (almost like I've taken the creatures body, but not quite). I then realize what he's doing. He's trying to get the building to collapse. As soon as I realize this, the building starts to shake. We both look away knowing what's next, but not compelled to watch. At this point, we take off in the sky flying away from the scene at an angle and speed of flight consistent with a helicopter - but of course there's no helicopter. I realize I'm flying and hence dreaming. But the scene is a little unstable. It's a very odd circumstance. I don't really have phyical form. It's more like my conscious awareness has been tagged to the predator and this scene. As we fly away I recognize the buildings and overall city feel as being Brooklyn, not far from southern Manhattan. I try to figure out how to stabilize the scene or get my body actually immersed in it but to no avail. I wake.


Mom at the Movies

I have a view of a scene that looks almost like a movie screen in a theatre. It's squared off and far away, with nothing but darkness surrounding the picture. The movie itself is some old footage of my mom. I get the sense it dates back to the mid 60's or so. I realize I'm dreaming but again, my body doesn't really have any presence in this dream. I just watch for a bit. I am hoping there wil be sound and she'll say something interesting. As I continue to watch I realize there is no audio. Her lips are moving but there's no associated sounds. I then wake (maybe a FA). I'm lying on the couch and lie still. Quick enough I feel vibrations and I relax and ride them out. I keep my breathing even and figure they'll end and I'll wake on my dream couch. The vibrations last for a good 20 seconds or so, enough time to conclude that I'll pursue some lucid sex when I enter my dreamspace. The vibrations stop, I roll over ... and wake again  ::).

Background: I'm at the gym yesterday with my wife. We finish and she's having some final conversation with La (who I rarely see but I've always been hot for). I say to my friend S "look, K is chatting with La and setting up my birthday threesome as we speak". He looks at me and says "yeah right, in your lucid dream fantasies". Yep  ;)

Anyway, lot's of WILD attempts and lots of WILD problems. Most were hampered by bad paralysis once my vibrations stopped. Only two are worth writing up.


More WILD problems

I successfully get vibrations going and ride them out. When I get up, I'm moving a little better than the previous two attempts, but my vision is crap. I figure my best bet is to go out and fly. I feel my way to the door and exit. I jump in the air and flap. Uncharacteristically though, my vision doesn't really improve. I'm enjoying all the sensations of flying, but I still can't see. After a while it strikes me that it would be fun to do some sumbersaults in mid air. I do and this clears my vision. It's now a daytime scene and I flip over in mid air, over and over again. It's quite fun. The scene then becomes unstable and I believe I'm waking. It goes dark. But rather than find myself awake on my couch, I sit up in my back yard on the grass. I'm initially confused by this transition. I then hear a few female voices next door. I try to call them over but can't get much voice projection going. I hear them again and clap instead, trying to get their attention.  I wake.


Getting Closer

Same thing, vibrations and entering my dreamspace where I left my wakeful world, on my dream couch. This dream is more stable and cohesive though. I make my way upstairs. It's dark and I'm hoping K and La will be in bed fooling around, that would be easiest. I hear a moan and I'm encouraged. When I get there however, it's just K in bed and she's tossing restlessly. I pull down my pants and hop in. She doesn't seem too interested and somehow falls out of bed and onto the floor. Not yet discouraged, I walk around, work her pants down and enter her from behind. She slowly gets into it.

I then ask her "why don't you call La in now, you know she would be turned on by watching you get F'd". She yells "La, you can come in now". From one of the far bedrooms I hear her response, something about how she'll be right there. After a half minute though, nothing. Then I try, "hey La, we're ready for you, why don't you come in now". Again, a response and claim that she'll be here momentarily but no visitor.

At this point, we decouple and I get up to retrieve La from the other room. I'm pretty sure I'll find her but  when I enter, nothing. I look in the other bedroom, same thing - no one there. I start thinking about what I could have done differently, but wake at this point.

Select people. My friend S confides in me. He told me his wife was banging some other guy and that's the reason they're getting divorced. That's more personal than some LD fantasy. Besides, every guy in the gym wants to give it to La - I'm sure it ain't just me.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical February 12, 2009, 10:41:04 AM
Neither of these were great. Just writing them up for completness:


Driving at Night

I'm driving along a side street that I usually use as a short cut to get to my gym. It dawns on me that there's no reason I should be on this road in the middle of the night. I realize I'm dreaming. I stop the car and try to get out. My legs get stuck on the drivers seat itself. I struggle a little and manage to decouple from the car but wake (FA).

I then find myself in a room that's laid out like my TV room (where I started my WBTB and entrainment session) except the couch is a bed and there are some other small differences. The scene begins to fade and I start feeling my way around. I manage to walk way further than I should have based on what I remember the room looking like. I wake.


Spying on the Neighbors?

I wake from a dream and lie still. I feel vibrations across my body and ride them out. Just shy of the vibrations fully stopping, I sit up and get off the couch. I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming. The clock says 5:15 which I'm almost certain is too early. I check the kitchen clocks and they say 5:20. That's weird. I go to my desk and pull out a watch. I hold it up to the window and it's very fancy and hard to read but I think it says 6:30. It doesn't even dawn on me at the time that I don't even own this watch. There's a light on in the hall bathroom and I get the sense that my mom might be in there. I don't really like dealing with my dream parents. Too unpredictable. Instead I leave the house.

It's balmy and wet outside. I have some trouble getting a decent grip on the driveway and decide to flip on my hands and push off the ground with my arms in order to traverse the driveway doing flips. This works only marginally well. I then see a car across the driveway. It looks like my wife's Beamer except it's a darker grey. It doesn't appear to be occuppied. I then see a break in the bushes and an opening to my neighbors yard. I investigate. There's a small pond in their front yard which doesn't really belong there. I wonder what I should do? Look through the windows and spy on them? Start a fight w/ B? I think about the options but feel weird about both of them and exit via the path I used to get here in the first place. I start making my way up the driveway toward the street again but wake.

Yup, I do that too.  I think it's good discipline and I certainly find it helps me appreciate the diversity of dream material.
Was it 5.20 IRL?

Not sure I understand the question? A lot of my lucids start in my house, on my couch in particular. There's where I go to lucid dream. I use clocks as a sanity check of my state. Usually clocks will be faded out, give wacky times or disagree with one another. Just a RT, nothing more.

Maybe Healthcare?

I'm sitting in a classroom setting but it's non traditional. More a long table were students are gathered around and a teacher is at the head of the table. The teacher is walking around reviewing homework assignments. I believe it to be a math class. However, there are two students who are nervously studying what appears to be a biology text of some kind. I take a look and they're both on the same page which shows a cross section of the upper GI tract. I consider this odd and figure they must have an exam next period and they're doing some last minute desperation studying. They both flip their pages and the next page looks like a page out of Mortal Mist. It has my Avatar and it appears to be one of my posts. Oh .. dreaming!

I do nothing but take in the scene for a bit. I then ponder what the dream means while still in it. Did I screw up studying math and science all those years and a health care track would have made more sense? Yeah probably. I wake (FA).

I'm on the couch and figure I'll get up to pee before resuming more lucid dreaming. I get up and once in the kitchen I feel my NT pulsing away at my ears. Residual effect? Oh, I must still be dreaming - I think? The scene is so vivid and coehesive though I'm not 100% convinced. I walk to the living room and look out the window. It's soaking wet outside. There are puddles everywhere. If I'm not dreaming I dont want to get soaked for real and make an ass out of myself. I feel light and try to float for further dream verification. This goes only moderately well. I walk to the bathroom. I see my dad sleeping on the living room couch. This further confuses my and I lose whatever lucidity I had. I enter the bathroom to pee. The toilet is about 5 times its normal size and my wife has deposited left over or defective PP packaging in the toilet. I get mad that she would do this and not dispose of things properly. I start peeing anyway. She'll have to deal with the mess later, it's her fault anyway. The toilet is on a hinge of some kind and I pull it up so it's more like a urinal. I wake for real.

This is what I get for watching BSG right before bed ...

Fighting the Cylons:

I'm outside on a brick structure of some kind fighting off a cylon attack. There is a non-stop flow of cylons approaching from the left and right. From the left, they basically look like the newest models. From the right they look like the new models but they are colored white, making them look a little like storm troopers. I have a gun which seems to be able to obliterate them easy enough. However, they are coming so fast that eventually I won't be able to maintain this pace. One gets very close to me and I shoot him. His head lands right next to me. There's a complete scene change at this point.

I'm now in our family room and my daughter is eating a red ice pop very haphazardly. She starts spilling melted ice pop all over our beige carpet. I become infuriated. I run inside to get some cleaning items. My wife is there and I ask her to help but she's disinterested. This makes me even madder. In my haste, I spill a big cup of water all over the floor. Again, I ask my wife and daughter to help but they're not budging. I throw down some paper towels and head to the carpet.

I get on my knees and my wife comes in and says "holy crap, I didn't realize it was this bad". I respond something to the effect of "why do you think I'm so mad?". I start cleaning the first of about 10 stains. It disappears as soon as I work it with soap and water. Completely gone. Oh ... dreaming!

My reaction at this point is uncharacteristic. I'm like "F this!".  I wake myself up mad that I had such a sucky dream.

Overly strong G response last night:


Working on my Birthday Present

I feel myself entering sleep and I make my way into my dream void. It's not cohesive in any sense but I get a vague sense on my my knees in front of the couch. I run with this and imagine myself touching it and standing up - this actually works very well and helps form the dream. I'm still not moving easily but slowly make my way up to our bedroom hoping K is in bed w/ L for a little birthday threesome. When I eventually make my way up there, there are two woman in bed under the covers. I have huge trouble getting my pants and underwear off but finally manage. I burn up so mcuh time and energy with this task that by the time I hop into bed the dream breaks up and  I wake.


BP#2/BP#3

Two more just like the first. Each were DEILDS. Both times I had lots of problems getting undressed.


BP#4

Another DEILD right out of BP#3. This time I'll try to keep it simple. I'll try to conjure L in the first floor bathroom. Maybe the shower  :D? By the time I get there I hear light music upstairs and there's no one in the 1st floor bathroom anyway. OK, suckered in once again. I head up and find K and L in bed. They're both naked and sleeping, apparently knocked out from playing with each other earlier in the night? I do a little better with my pants and underwear but can never get the bundle of clothes over my right foot. Who cares? I hop in bed. L's ass is facing my as she's sleeping on her side. She spends a lot of time in the gym and it's as nice as I would have imagined. I figure I'll wake her abruply. I get myself aroused and ponder which hole to take  :angel:. Of course  I wake at this point.


I then have a few cool flying dreams. Fun, but nothing worht writing up at the moment.


Finally, my Birthday Present Arrives! (seriously, if you read the spoiler, things get pretty intense, don't blame me, blame my sub-conscious  :D)

I'm in some guys apartment. He had a chair that's a VR simulator of some kind. It looks like the cockpit of the millenium falcon. I play with it a little, checking out how it rotates and moves in any desired direction and appreciating some of the graphics on a screen in front of me. I get out and there are several kids, one with a radio. I feel like I should follow them. We go down some stairs that are vertical (more like a ladder) and I realize I'm dreaming. I recognize the house as similar to my granparents home on Queens NY from several decades ago.

We leave the house and get to the street. It's three lanes each way and we have to wait to cross traffic. All the kids are going to some location on the corner. I break off as a seemingly empty building catches my eye. I enter it and it's very quiet. There's a hall with an office that has a light on but I don't get the sense it will be productive if I enter. I think to myself, wouldn't it be great to find a hot babe or two in the back room?

@Lumi: Yeah, I can easily play amateur psycologist on this one. I know my wife would never bring home another girl, and in reality I wouldn't be confortable asking her to do something she wasn't into. So my sub-conscious throws up a bunch of road blocks.

@MB: Yeah, sometimes I get a little sexed up w/ G. But I always seem to be looking for a few girls at once. You seem to be picking your guys one at a time  ;)

Nightmare With a Nested Lucid

I'm on a college campus, LC I believe. There's a gunman on the loose and he's killed quite a few people so far. I spot him and believe he may have seen me. I frantically run and search for a hiding spot. There's a bushey tree and I decide that's my best bet. I climb in and get in a fetal position to minimize my body size. I wait. Since I'll be here for a while I close my eyes and try to relax. I start to dream (within the dream).

I'm along a city and river. It reminds me a little of the east river in NY, but the skyline is too new and too small to be Manhattan. I'm still in a fetal position on my right hand side and I'm flying north bound up the river. There's an invisible force just pulling me a long. I realize the flying as a DS and understand that I'm dreaming. I don't however feel compelled to try to control it in any sense. This goes on for a few minutes. It's a very pleasant flight with a very cool view of this city. I wake (back into the nightmare).

Hours have passed and I realize the tree is now in a girls dorm. K from work and V my friends wife are there and walk up to me. I ask what's going on? They say the gunman has killed 25 and hasn't been caught yet. I get down and we head to their dorm room. I have firm reason to believe that the gunman is mad at me and wants to single me out. This makes me very nervous. K gets to the room first and V and I follow. When I enter, K is preparing two pipes with a leafy material. This surprises the hell out of me, but then I realize it's not pot. It's some type of incense and it's not meant for human consumption. I am offered a seat and take it. I then realize I have nothing on but a small black pair of underwear. I would feel uncomfortable if it weren't for the circumstances. Just then, a large group of people start walking into the room ( I recognize some but can't remember the details now). They just want to come in and stand around and don't say hi to any of us. I wake for real.

G night but had lot's of problems getting back to sleep. Had FA's after each lucid. The 2nd lucid had 3 such events and was the oddest experience.


Finally, Spring Arrives

I finally start dozing off and feel a series of vibrations. I relax and transition into my dreamspace. I get off the couch and look over to the dog to see if she wants to follow, but she seems disinterested. I note the time as 6:37 but it's way too dark for that time so it doesn't make sense. I figure the final confirmation will be stepping outside and insuring the temperature is pleasant.

I open the door and sure enough, it's a nice 65-70F. I walk up the driveway and do a few forward handspring flips (which I've taken a liking to lately). It's early morning and very quiet out. I'm a little stuck for a task. I briefly review the neighbor list, but no hotties to conjure. I just start walking. It dawns on me a minute later that all of the trees have new leaf growth. It's odd though, mostly yellows, where in reality most of our trees are shades of green. Who cares? It's wonderful to take in a spring like scene and enjoy the newly budding foliage. I decide to fly. I make a couple of attempts to flap and gain altitude but it's not working too well. I finally get in mid air but  wake (FA).

I look over to the clock and it says 6:37. Hmmm, what a weird coincidence. I try to go back to sleep, and finally wake for real.


Taking the Dog with Me

After waking from the previous lucid, I moved a little and a DEILD seemed unlikley. But I did quickly transition back to my dreamspace in one weird swoosh like sensation. I have some trouble sitting up. Again, I figure I'll take the dog but she's way ahead of me. She runs to the front of the house like she hears something. I follow. The lock mechanism on the front door is not working properly but I finally manage it and open the door. S bolts. I'm fine with that, she can't get into any trouble. I walk out as well. The neighbor to our corner yells to me "S is headed your way". I see her whip past me and run back to the house. I let her be and continue.

Again, my one track lucid mind reviews the neighbor list for a possible "encounter". What about the 16 year old babysitter girl from around the corner? She'd be about 19 now? Somehow this all seems more trouble than it's worth. I decide to fly. I run as fast as I can and jump trying to fly superman style. I take off crooked and head toward a house. I use my legs to kick off of it and straighten my flight but proceed with my more time proven backstroke method. I love the view of the ground and trees moving away from me as I gain altitude, this time is no expception. The flight is short though as the scene fades and I soon wake (FA).

I wake and feel a little hung over. I have a small glass of leftover bourbon in my hand and appear to be in my senior year room from my fraternity house. It's daytime and I try to piece together where I am and what's going on. I wake (FA).

I'm in that same senior year room. It's now dark and storming out with massive amounts of rain hitting the window. The window shade rolls down by itself about 12 inches and I wonder how it did that. I then get very confused. Where the hell am I? I'm semi-lucid and realize something is not right but can't quite place it. The scene is very cohehsive and very real. I can't figure it out. I wake (FA).

I'm on my couch. I think about that werid series of FA's. I hear water dripping. It sounds like the rate at which the humidifier drips into the sump, but I'm nowhere near there. I again ponder what the hell is going on. I'm more confused than I should be. I wake for real (finally).

Day 3. Evening CES protocol. No supps, WBTB etc ...


Where to Get the Invisible Unicorn?

I'm in my old home in NY. I'm having a conversation about MB's proposed invisible unicorn tattoo. I'm yelling into the next room on the subject but not with her. I'm looking at the picture and realize there's a very faint unicorn picture embedded in the symbol and determine that the tattoo artist will need to be very good. I tell her I got mine at a place that specializes in portraits.

I walk into the den and it's not MB, but MG from high school. Why did I tell her I had a tattoo? I've thought about it but never have. MG says she didn't know I had a tattoo and asks where? I reach around to my upper left shoulder and then change the subject. I say "you're getting really skinny". She looks at me weird. I mean "skinnier ... it's meant to be a complement". She's OK with that.

I walk to the front of the house and my mom walks in. I look out the LR window and it dawns on me that I'm dreaming. I just relax and take in the scene a little. I look to the grandfather clock and it says 11:30 am. I try to recall where I am in my sleep cycle and hence how much LD time I might have? I think to myself it must be 11:30 pm and this is my first REM cycle. I better move it along. I walk to the kitchen unsure what to do next? I realize I have on pajamas that are unbuttoned and a wool winter hat.

Well, when in doubt ... fly! I get very excited, toss off my heavy hat and open the back door. I'm still very concerned about waking though. I decide to fly to my rock and take a running start -  but of course wake up.

I look to the clock and it's 5:50 am - actually very late in my sleep cycle.

Peanut Butter Induce Lucid  :D

I completed a WBTB session and I was trying to sleep. I almost WILDed several times but kept losing it. I try something that almost worked one more time. I visualize myself walking to the kitchen and touching the counter top, following it along to the draw where we keep the butter knives. I keep feeling my way and open the draw and grab a knife. I reverse path and head to the pantry to grab the PB. By the time I've grabbed the PB, the scene has become sufficiently cohesive and I've been immersed into it.

I toss the PB and head to the front door. I'm not completely grounded and find myself floating somewhat uncontrollably. I get near a window and kick myself up toward it tryng to pass through. The window becomes flexible and stretches without breaking. I keep pushing and it keeps getting more and more stretched. I use my nails to rip through it and proceed outside. I have no specific plans. I decide to follow-up on a quirky thought from last week - I decide to spy on the neighbors. I quietly start crawling toward their house. I'm mindful to be very quiet just in case I'm not dreaming (don't want to get my head blown off or anything). There are lights on and I hear some conversation, but most of the windows are not transparent and I can't surmise what the hell is going on in there. I decide to hop the fence back to our yard.

I leap in the air for some flying but it only goes moderately well. I land and consider my other options. Maybe conjure someone? My friend S? How about a hot babe? I look over to my usual conjuring spot and call out "OK, which one of you hotties would like to play a little". Nothing. I walk over to inspect further, but no one is there. or presumably interested. Oh well. I leap in the air for a little more flying,  but wake soon enough.


Backyard Geiser

I wake (FA) and it's broad daylight. I figure I've overslept. I sit up and notice something peculiar. There is a column of steam rising out of a spot about 70 feet into the backyard. I figure there must be a sewer manhole and the steam is rising due to the difference in temperature. I try to remember if there is such a manhole or not. It dawns on me I must be dreaming. I make my way to the front of the house and open the door. There is no screen door to be found - further proof I'm dreaming.

I take a running leap and start to fly. It's such a beautiful day out and it's a pleasant flight. I eventually make may way over to an enormous tree. I grab a branch and park for a bit. I'm just dangling from this branch. I then hang from one hand and swing wildly back and forth, switch hands and repeat. I'm hoping a DC might be somewhere below and get freaked out by how dangerous this would look. However, no one is around. I ponder if I should free fall or resume flying. I choose to kick off the tree and fly again. This goes on for another minute or so before I lose my sight and the dream begins to fade. For some reason there's always a delay before waking when I lose my dream in mid flight. This time is no exception. I just fly though this weird void between my dreamspace and wakeful space for another 10 seconds and  finally wake.

I'm Rich!

I'm in the basement. Someone has removed the layer of concrete which covers the floor and I'm digging. I uncover all sorts of valuable looking artifacts, gold coins etc ...  I get the sense that these items were hidden here as buried treasure. I rush upstairs very excited.

It somehow hits me that I'm dreaming. To confirm this, I decide to float off the floor. This goes well, a very nice controlled floating experience. I float upstairs. I figure I'll tell my dream wife about the bruried treasure. But I wake before reachign her.

Birthday Present - Reprise (adult content)

I'm on the couch trying to LD but I'm quiet restless and anxious. I almost doze once or twice but it's very fleeting. I figure I'll get up to pee. I look at the clock and it shows an unreasonably early time. I then notice that there is light coming from the living room. It appears to be from my wifes office. The bathroom is that way anyhow, so I investigate. I then realize it's a little hard to move. Oh ... I've been dreaming all this time!


I'm glad the orgasm didn't bleed into RL. I get up and note the time. It's still way too early which confuses me. I then wake for real.


I'm inclined to call this a lucid dream, though it was a very odd experience:

Weird Vibrational State

Not long after the 1st lucid I start to doze off again. I feel some head and neck vibrations come on. They start slow but gradually intensify. Within 10 seconds they are very intense. At about this time I hear a radio broadcast of a baseball game. It's muddy, but I make out something about the Cardinals. I then see a flash of densly packed sqiggly green lines - just a really odd/trippy hypnagogic image. That disappears but the audio and vibrations don't stop. I know if I try to stop them and just get up that I will simply wake. So I relax and try to ride it out. This seems to go on forever, but it certainly must have been 30 seconds or so. I then feel my legs roll over and my body float off the couch. The vibrations stop and I figure I'm in my dreamspace. But upon getting off the couch it's clear that I've simply woken up. Weird.

Mom's Comb

I'm in bed and wake from a dream. The last thing I remember is grabbing one of my moms combs. I think these are kind of out of style - fine teeth and a long narrow stem. I feel a little off. I get out of bed to assess things. I realize I have her comb, still in my hand. No way I materialized something from a dream, I'm obviously still dreaming.

I make my way downstairs as I'm in the mood for some flying. It's still very dark out. I get a little stuck and leap to the door. My hand lands perfectly on the door handle and I open the door and exit. It takes a moment for my sight to adjust, but when it does it's broad daylight. I leap in the air and begin to fly. Somehow, the scene outside my house is unexpected. It's a mountainous scene. Beautiful sprawling mountains covered with trees and lush bushes and flowers. The flight takes on a mind of it's own. I'm not really in control at this point. Rather I'm getting pulled along travelling backwards. This gives me a wonderful view of the scenery. In the several minute flight I pass a mountain side and a sparkling blue lake. After enjoying this flight for a bit  I wake too soon.


My Friend S

I sit up on the couch and get the sense I'm dreaming. Again, I had just awoken but something is not right. I look over to the nightlight and it's turned off, a pretty sure sign I'm dreaming. I exit the house. I start to have a little trouble moving. I fall to the ground. There's about an inch of snow and I expect it to feel warm and slushy like it has in previous lucids. Instead, it feels exactly like snow, cold and fluffy like the dry snow we got last night. I briefly second guess whether I'm dreaming.

I hear a commotion up the road. There are three people arguing and headed this way. I make my way to the road to intercept them. Two of them depart and one heads towards me. What should I do? My first instinct for some odd reason is to start a fight. But my better side rejects that idea. He walks up to me and I ask "can you tell me what important event is going to happen today?". He responds but it's not insightful. As the scene continues I realize he's morphed into my friend S. He doesn't seem to recognize me, but I certainly recognize him. I slap him on the stomach (he's put on some weight) and say "hey S, you have a little pot? Let's go in the back and get high". He tells me that of course he does, and seems very agreeable to the suggestion. He clearly now recognizes me.

We walk to the backyard. However, the scene loses cohesivenss  and the dreams ends before we get a chance for some lucid/stoned conversation.


Swimming Through Air

Same basic pattern. I find myself having awoken and sitting up on the couch. I feel like I'm still dreaming. I go to the kitchen and the clock is a wacky time with numbers in bright red instead of green. I'm clearly dreaming. As I leave the kitchen, I see the entire kitchen basked in bright red light. It looks a little ominous and I choose not to look back.

I exit the house, run and leap in the air, trying to use a tree as a point of reference to mentally gain altitude. This works mediocre and I need to flap as well. After I get stable in the air, I choose to do a breast stroke, much like if I were swimming. I begin to effortlessly swim through the air. The scene around my house is again a surprise. But this time it's mostly dense forest. As I traverse the forest I come to a beautiful lake. It's only a few feet deep but several hundred feet in length and width. The water is crystal clear and I can see all kinds of plant growth within the water. At about this time I finally begin to feel tired from all the arm and leg motion. I change stroke and tell myself there's no reason to get tired in the first place.

I continue flying for another minute or two, mostly flying over the lake checking out that scene. I wake.


Leaping from the Empire State Building.

I wake from the previous dream and mentally visualize that previous flying techique. I simply play it out in my mind in an effort to review the previous dream. In doing this, I immerse myself into a new scene. I'm again flying using a breast stroke. The scene however is radically different. I'm approaching the Empire State building in NYC. The scene is not exactly correct, The building has more layers to it and the surrounding buildings are too short, but it's a reasonable facsimile for a dream. I fly to the very top of the building an cling on. What to do? The only thing which jumps out at me is to hold my arms out as far as possible and fall backwards. That's exactly what I do and  I wake before hitting the ground.

I had the oddest dream last night. I haven't used african dream root in a number of weeks and decided to give it a whirl again. Last night was night 1, of what I plan to be a 3 day cycle.


Am I Dead, or Just in a Vegitative State?

I drive up to the Gainesville Gym, where I used to work out at the Univ of Florida some 17 years ago. The owner is leaving in the mid afternoon. I just miss him. I enter and there is absolutely no one there. I feel odd being all alone and figure I'm not welcomed without management around. I turn around and leave.

Later that day, I re-enter the gym. It's the late afternoon and it's quite busy. I sit on a bench and remove and adjust my shoe. Something doesn't seem right, and I'm somewhat semi-lucid. Why would I be here again? I haven't been here in years? I then have the oddest sensation in my middle back. It feels like a small animal crawling around in there, perhaps a mouse or other rodent. It's not painful, just really weird. It stops. Then I double over in pain as I get a similar but more intense sensation at my lower back. Again, it feel like a creature crawling inside but the sensation is sharp enough to make me keel over.

I then have the oddest thought sequence. What if I'm dead, and my life as I know it is just a projection of my mind? Or maybe I F'd myself up somehow and I'm sitting in a hospital hooked up to machines and my awareness is pulled into this visionary world? I get the sense it might be the latter and think back to a real world event that must have lead to this state. That weird crawling sensation? I guess it's just a glitch - much like in the Matrix.

I then think to myself ... even is this isn't true, that premise would make a decent movie. I wake.


Of course this premise was basically a movie (Jacobs Ladder) and the animal crawling in my back was my daughter kicking me from behind (she had a rough night and wanted to sleep w/ us).

Night 3 of an ADR cycle. Very long/complex dreams. One such sequence with some lucidity early in the evening:


Rabid Coyote

I'm in my house and my wife is doing some kind of product demonstration in the bathroom. There are at least 5-6 people in there making it quite crowded. I try to get a word in and I'm ignored. I leave. I enter the bedroom and think to myself that I'll take off my outer shirt and reveal my tank top - this should earn me more attention. Before I do that however I notice a big pile of dog vomit on the floor. I get really pissed off that the dog puked on the carpet again.

For some reason, I make my way into my daughters room to check in on her. The garage catches my eye and I realize that both garage doors are open. It's very late and this seems like a security risk. I then notice that my wife's BMW is missing. I look for my jeep and it's not there either. Instead, there's an old lincoln parked in my spot. I'm confused by this at first. It finally hit's me that it's a little like dad's car, but of course that vehicle is 2000 miles away ... dreaming! As soon as I realized this, my eye sight fogs over a little. I relax and tell myself that the stability of this dream should be really good with the help of the ADR. I make my way downstairs and my eye sight and ability to move freely return to normal.

I get to the kitchen and it is decorated much like a little girls playhouse. There are little plastic tea cups, dishes and place mats etc ...  The entire scene feels very cartoonish and surreal. I notice my wife on the couch watching TV. I then realize that our dog is humping her leg. I had no idea they had this level of intimacy  O_O. I walk over and the dog jumps off. I ask my wife if it's my turn. I whip it out and start playing with myself a little. She doesn't seem into it and moves away. I position myself so I'm right over her head. She doesn't find this playful or amusing at all and gets up. OK, if she's going to play hard to get I'm going outside.

Upon leaving the house I realize it's still nightime. I start roaming the yard and  lose lucidity. I happen upon a school yard with a small play area that has a wood roof. I notice a pile of hay and our daughter sleeping on it. I'm put off by the fact that my wife would leave her here. I then notice animal legs sticking out from the hay. I investigate and realize that it's actually a coyote sleeping on it's back w/ it's legs up. As soon as I notice it it gets up and starts growling. My daughter is now our dog and I'm fearful for her since she doesn't have the same fighting instincts as a wild coyote. I pull her away. The coyote attacks us. I fend it off my countering it's lunges with punches to the face. I would rather kick it and do more damage but my leg control is poor. I become concerned that I'm ripping up my hands and they might become exposed to the coyote's saliva and/or blood. It starts to give up and I grab my dog and head away.

We eventually find our way back home and enter the porch. I then notice the coyote has returned. I conveniently find my old wooden softball bat and head out with the intention of ending this battle once and for all. The coyote runs up to me and I clober it over the head and neck breaking the bat in half. I take the thinner end and chase the coyote some more (it didn't really seem that hurt from the main blow to the head). He finally gives up and I return to the porch. I wake.

Not that unusual really. I have plenty of confrontational type non-lucid dreams. This one was early in my sleep cycle (no other supps or WBTB). Without the bias in AcH levels, I sometimes lose lucidity.

But this is a good example of the more epic type dreams I have w/ ADR. You just need to understand what you might or might not get from that substance. I could have written up a few more that were just as detailed. That's the main benefit. Long dreams and good recall.

Too many days between G uses. I almost couldn't fall back to sleep at all. When I did, three rather brief/unstable lucids:


Swimming

I start to get some good HI and just run with the scene in my mind. Next I know, I'm immersed into the scene. I find a stairwell and head down. It reminds me of my grandparents old house in Queens NY. I turn the corner and head toward the playroom and backyard. When I get close to the sliding glass doors the light is very blinding. I allow my eyes to adjust a little and exit to the yard. The yard is an unexpected scene. There's a nice in the ground pool in the center of the yard. The perimeter of the yard is wide open and I can see into all the adjacent yards. No one is around. I figure I'll dive into the pool head first. The water is cool and the sensation of the water swooshing through my hair feels so real. I do a lap or two with a nice relaxing back stroke  before waking.


Failed Attempt at the Intermediate Task

I reposition on the couch and realize my lower legs are on top of the dog. She doesn't seem to mind. But that corner is not her usual spot. How did she get there at all? I figure I might be dreaming? Sure enough, when I sit up the VCR clock is blank, a sure DS. I head outside and the dog follows. I figure I'll try to walk up the side of the house.

I walk to the brick wall and put one foot up onto it. I relax and try to lie back and float horizontally. This starts to work but as I become horizontal and my visual perspective changes, it's something I'm not used to. The stars above are very beautiful which also catches my eye and becomes a bit of a distraction. I lose my momentum. Then I walk away and run up to the wall trying to run/scale up it. This also fails.

I lose interest in this task and decide to fly for a bit. It's nice but doesn't last too long. I wake.


Show me Something Evil and Frightening

I wake from the previous dream and lie still. I have a moderate wave or two of vibrations but don't get the sense that I've transitioned back to my dreamspace. My wife and daughter come down making a bit of a commotion. My daughter walks over and sees me trying to sleep. I give her a brief hug and she tells me "good night daddy". I then wonder whether this is a dream. It feels too real but it's worth the RT. I sit up and sure enough the VCR clock is blank.

I get up, grab my magic wand and head outside. I have a quirky idea. It might require an ability to shoot defensive lightening bolts from my magic wand  ;). I run and take a flying leap into the air. I then say out loud ... "OK, show me something very evil and frightening". I'm intriguid but what kind of heinous monster my mind might be able to conjure. I wait patiently, but nothing. I don't feel like beating this task to death either. Some other time. I fly for a while and  soon wake.

True, I could get a delayed response.

I actually had a pretty freaky nightmare early on last night. It was some kind of battle inspired by BSG. There were definately cylons. The only thing I remember well was a witch who was able to shoot lightning from her hands. The lightning bolts travelled very slowly, but were devistatingly powerful. She was shooting them over my head at a target behind me.

I don't have too many stressful dreams, but that one was a little distressing.

What a weird ass night of dreaming. Two off the cuff brief lucids. Tons of bizarre non-lucid dreams, a few of which I remember and will post:


Childhood Bedroom

I find myself in a bedroom. The furniture is exactly that which I had in my bedroom when I was young. The exact shape of the room and orientation of the furniture are off however. I realize I'm dreaming. What to do? Without supps or WBTB my instincts take over. It hits me that there are probably a few good adult magazines under the dresser. I'll pull one out and play a little. I then think about how stable this lucid is so far and get concerned that I might wake. Of course  I wake at this point (really a FA I think).


Questionable Supps

I walk into my music room and find 1/3 of a nicotine patch still on its backing. It's on top of the bass amp. I'm not really comfortable with this just laying around so I decide to put it away. I realize there are a few more questionable items in close proximity and that someone has taken notice of this all. I get initially stressed out, but then realize I'm dreaming. I have no good instincts on what to do here. I wake shortly thereafter.


Hgh School Fish Tank

I'm having a meetng with a HS guidance counselor. She needs to speak with the other person in her office in private and we agree that she will call me on my cell when I'm ready. I leave the office. I only have on a long yellow shirt and a pair of briefs. I pull the shirt down to get some coverage, since I feel very self conscious.  I eventually get the call back and tell her I'll be there in two minutes.

On walking back, I'm side tracked by the old physics room. The teacher is lecturing. There is lots of math on the board and a sketch of a flying saucer. I interupt and ask for the formaldahyde. He points me to a large container that is white and more or less opague. There's about 5 inches of brown fluid and surprisingly a large number of fish swimming about. I leave with the container. When I get to the hall I'm concerned that the fish will suffocate. I spill the entire contents out onto the floor. I fill the container with water and start picking the fish up. I'm surprised how many fish there are. Some are dead, but most are alive and some are very large. A few are prickly and I need to carefully pick them up. It then dawns on me that they may have adapted to the formaldahyde and that maybe water will kill them?


Fish Mating

I'm swimming in a large pool underwater. There are two flounder. The smaller male is trying to mount and mate with the female, but she's being uncooperative. I have a mental telepathy connection with the male fish. He's telling me how it's important for there species that he procreate and wonders if I can help? In the dialogue he also lets me know that his penis will drop off after mating  O_O

He mounts the female again and I gently hold them against the sandy floor so she can't escape. He finishes his task and I let them go. The males penis breaks off and floats the top. But it's clear that he is very happy to have been given a chance for his genetic information to carry on.


Sleestak

I go upstairs and enter my daughters room. I hear sleestak hissing (Land of the Lost). Sure enough, there are 3 sleestak waiting for me behind the door. I find this amusing as opposed to scary. I push them aside and get my duaghters attention. I tell her to come upstairs and into her room. She does. The Sleestak jump out at her next. For some reason, she's not at all scared of them either. Her reaction is the same. She's rather amused by the whole thing.

Well you promised "bizarre".  I'd really love to see what a psychoanalyst would make of that one :D
I want to laugh.  But I can't help thinking there's something really very serious going on.  Oh, OK.  :chuckle:
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical March 11, 2009, 06:39:47 PM
I pondered the question of what the Fish mating dream means. This is a tough one.

Is my wife uncooperative sexually? Well, sometimes ... aren't they all?

What about spreading genetic info? Well I have a daughter. I've spread my genes and I'm really content with one. So I'm not sure where that came from.

Why have the penis break off when he's done? The only parallel I can think of is the common scenario of couples who have a great sex life at first, but once the ring is on the finger, the penis is only useful for spreading genes, and that is a short lived requirement as well.

It's also interesting that the prior dream involved fish too.

IDK. Maybe MsTechnical simply needs to give me some more  ??? I think that's the conclusion here.

Hyper lucid. BW entrainment before bed, G/C at 3:00 am. Quite a few more lucids that I know occured, but I don't remember all the details.


Trying To Meet Up With S

I have a series of vibrations and figure I'm dreaming when they're done. I get off the couch and feel a little sluggish, a sure sign I'm dreaming. I make my way to pick up my magic wand and leave the house. My goal is to find S and see if he has any of those freaky white flower petals. I get to the driveway and hear him coming up the road. It's dark and I only see his sillouette. I call out to him but he diverges to the neighbors yard. By the time I get there he's no where to be seen. I do the next best thing. I take a running leap into
the air and have a nice flying experience. After a few minutes of soaring over the neighborhood  I wake.


Floor Gymnastics

More vibrations. I get up sure I'm dreaming. I exit the house and make my way to the road to look for S. I don't see anyone. I feel compelled to do to flips on the street. I run and jump on my hands and flip myself back onto my legs. That was easy. I then repeat but do some more sophisticated multiple flips including a few at a diagnonal angle. Who the hell knew I was a gymnast in a previous life. I keep doing this down the road and  wake a little too soon.


Tree Trimmers Attack

I'm in my bedroom on the second floor when I see a truck trailoring some tree trimming equipment. It's running through my backyard. How did they even get in there? The yard is fenced in. They're travelling at a high rate of speed and will crash through the west fence any moment. I run downstairs and out the front door. The yard is all ripped up, but mostly on the neighbors side. I somehow realize I'm dreaming. I'm very relieved but I've had enough of this dream. I wake.


Weird Restaurant Experience

I'm in a booth at a restaurant. Steve H from work brings my food over. It's a plate of pot stickers in a dark sauce and a glass of milk with a straw. I ask if that's really milk, wondering why he would serve this to me. He gives me a blank look. I take a sip through the straw. I look back up and Steve H has turned into Andy Richter from Conan Obrien (years ago). I look at him and again he has a very blank stair. Oh, I'm dreaming. This realization is short lived and I wake again.


Human Faced Dog

I'm in the den and look out the back window. There's a dog or person crouched stairing into our house. Oh, it's more like a dog with a persons face? This doesn't strike me as unreasonable yet. I run out and give chase. I chase it around the back yard several times. It makes it's way to the water spicket and I leap like a cat and jump 50 feet to intercept it. The leap makes me realize I'm dreaming. In the heat of the chase, he seems to have slipped away however. I wake.

Off the cuff lucid in my first REM cycle.


Flying Through the House

I'm at my parents old house in NY. I take the dog out at night to pee. We head to the back area by the old swing set. I see a skunk to the south perimeter and walk my dog in the other direction hoping she won't see her. For some reason I'm compelled to remove her from her leash and simply hold onto her collar. She finishes and we jog back to the house.

When we return to the house I walk to the kitchen and start floating off the floor. I find this odd and purposely hover in mid air. Oh ... dreaming! I feel very light and decide to flap and fly through the house. I pull off this task just fine, but in the process of moving through all that solid material I lose my visual acuity. I'm now floating upwards, not able to see very much. The sensation is pleasant but it sucks that I can't see anything. I wake after about 1 minute.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical March 17, 2009, 11:55:35 AM

Maybe S Knows How to Get to Our Rock?

I have two strong waves of vibrations. When I get up I'm quite convinced I'm dreaming. I head directly outside and start calling for my friend S. I figure I'll ask him if there's a more direct way for us to travel 900 miles and get to our old party rock. I get to the street and start calling out. "S, where are you?". He yells out from my left hand side. I see him sitting up against a tree outside of J's house. As I approach, I marval at how well my dreamspace has created this DC. He looks exactly like S.

I walk up and offer the pertinent question. "S, I've been trying to get to the rock from this starting point and I'm having problems, do you know a better way to get there?". He thinks about this for a moment then offers a long winded gibberish answer, something in relation to 25,000 years ago (or maybe in the future). Great, a DC dullard. I get disappointed and  then wake.


Wind Flying

More vibrations. When I get up the clock says 3:54 which I know has already come and gone. Definately dreaming. I make my way to the library and slip on the hard wood floors. When I do, I feel an invisible force pulling me backwards into the kitchen. I fight it at first but to no avail. I realize this is all in my mind and should be able to control it. As soon as I make this affirmation, the force relents. I get up and go outside.

I'm gratified that it's early morning out and VERY windy. Cool, S no, wind flying yes! I leap in the air and start flying. It's kinda like swimming in big rolling waves at Jones Beach on southern Long Island. You just go with the flow. If you fight the wind, you'll lose. The flying is effortless and I just get pushed around for a few minutes, providing some minimal direction with my arms and body position. So cool. I wake.


Springy Tree Limb

More vibrations. I get up and the clock says 6:34, which is reasonable. I need more confirmation. I go to the kitchen and the stove has an old fashioned clock with arms on it. That's not there IRL. Dreaming. I head outside. I see a car pass our house and rise up and down passing the mailbox. I investigate. Someone has installed a speed bump over night?? I do my walk/crawl thing, sort of running like a big cat. I head up the street. I decide to do some more flying and choose a superman style. This goes moderatly well, but I need to resort to flapping to get decent altitude. After some flying I head over to a tree limb to rest.

I grab the tree limb and hang for a bit. I'm pretty high up and wonder if I should just fall for the hell of it. I'm hesitant to do this however. The tree limb is very large but it starts to soften and bend over with my weight. It becomes rather springy, almost elastic. I use my body weight to try to get some up/down momentum on the branch with the intention of hitting the ground and jumping up. The jump along with the springy action of the limb might propel me into the air? I work on this task but  wake before pulling it off.

When I meet up with S he always seemes to speak in ridles. I don't doubt there's some significance to the 25,000 year reference. When I asked him what to call my lucid dream device a few months back he offered "3-D". I thought that was crap, until I realized what he was really suggesting  :)

DrTechnical, just out of curiosity.. A lot of your lucids seem to start off with the vibrations, and begin more or less where you were sleeping. Is this the technique you mentioned to me a while back?

I get similar dreams, but instead of vibrations I have a weird floating feeling. And I usually go right outside and try to fly and stuff. Those last few dreams, I can almost picture exactly what that was like.

The part with the branch was cool. But that wind flying sounds incredible!

Hmmm... 25000 years is almost the precession period of earth.. Maybe you should try spinning, like some do here, to get to your rock. :chuckle:

Hi Mu. Didn't see your response previously. Yes, that vibrations thing is what we discussed previously. I think it can be one of two things. A transition period, or a transition simulation once I'm already dreaming - sort of like PJ's "I'm already Dreaming" write-up.

Sometimes I'll get a floating sensation during the transition as well. If that's how it manifests for you, that's all you really need to know.

Maybe it was that discussion that G based dreams are "fantastical".


Weird FA Sequence

I'm lying in bed, listening to a squirrel on the roof hoping it doesn't start chewing through roof tiles. I feel myself getting close to dozing when I become aware again. My wife is next to me and on her cell phone. She says "you want who? J". She hangs up for some reason. Odd that we would get a call at like 4 am? I lie in bed for a few more minutes and get the sense I may be dreaming. I decide to look at the bedroom clock. Sure enough it's all fogged out. Dreaming!

I have a little trouble getting out from under the blanket but manage. I head downstairs, open the door and head out. I make my way to the street. I'm getting ready to jump in the air when I realize my leg hurts. At this time, I hear my cell phone ringing very loudly from the garage area. I figure it's ringing for real and that sound has penetrated my dream space. I hope it doesn't wake me. I try to relax and ignore it. But wake (FA).

I roll over and ask my wife if that was my cell phone. She confirms. I ask who was on the phone before. She says my dad. I hop out of bed concerned. "Why didn't you tell me earlier, maybe something bad happened to my mom?". I go down and I have a VM. I don't bother retreiving it and simply dial dad. Sure enough he's up and answers. He explains that he had another intenstinal bleeding episode and required surgery. I ask the important questions of how he is and what's the prognosis. At this time, I think I see someone trying to break into one of the windows. Then he vanishes.

I head to the kitchen and continue the discussion. Then there's someone at the bay windows. I try to open them but can't remember how? I manage and drop the phone. I pick it up, trying to discuss my dad's situation and considering what my best weapon is. I don't tell me dad what's going on since I don't want him to think he's not getting my undivided attention. I grab a survival knife and head to the window. I wake for real.


The Rock, Almost.

I find myself in our old house in NY. I realize I'm dreaming. I head out and jump into the air. My flying goes poorly and I only make it a few houses north. But that's progress. The dream is nice and stable and I walk northbound a few more houses to get to the cliff overlooking the water. It's early morning and very windy. The water is full of white caps. I walk down and realize there are many people up and about already. I decide to ignore them and focus on the rock.

I make good progress and think about how real this all is. How it's a virtual projection or alternative dimension that the brain can tune into. I think about device names  ;). The rock is within view. No one is there. I figure I'll get there and start yelling for S. Maybe that will work. I make it to within 50 feet of the rock ... and wake   :mad:  Oh well, that's as close as I have come yet.


Giant Ice Cream Cone Induced Lucid

It's evening and I have just been released from a long prison sentence. I have little money and need a cab home. I walk into the heart of a city and flag one down. At some point another passenger enters the car.

We converge to my old house and the other passenger starts eating an ice cream cone. Sort of like the type you would buy at a supermarket and squared off at the top. He instructs the driver to go to his house and we pass mine. We get dropped off. Since I'm close to the water anyway, I decide to walk down the stairs and hit the beach. I look west and one of the larger boulders are exposed with the low tide. There is a giant 15 foot ice cream cone sitting on top of it. I head that way.

Weird, what a huge cone? I walk for another 10 seconds before the obvious hits me. Dreaming! I realize I have a cone in my hand too. I walk to the rock but the 15 footer has disappeared. I get there and I'm at a loss as to what to do. The previous passenger had followed. I decide to smash the cone into the rock and grind it in thinking this will amuse the DC. I briefly think about swimming. Swimming there at low tide was not feasible due to the rocks, but in a dream it might be fine? I weigh the pros/cons  but wake.

Wind Flying and a Bad Surprise

I'm trying to LD when I get a sense I've just awoken again. I toss and turn violently once or twice and settle in. But I feel a bit odd. I realize I might be dreaming? I sit up and look at the clock which is hard to make out. I try to get up but the blanket is wrapped around my foot. Now I'm surely dreaming! I relax and take my time uncoupling from the blanket. I head straight to the door as it was pretty windy last night.

I have that walking through an unstable dream feeling, like it's not 100% stable yet. I open the door and jog out to the front yard. I leap in the air, kick and flap. I get a little height but it's a lot of work. The dream is becoming more stable and I see a tall building a series of trees to the north. I "pull" myself over to them using only my mind. This works quite well. I then pull myself upwards and get some fantastic height. I get so high I can see the sunrise to the east. The scene itself has changed though, this is no longer my neighborhood. I slowly drift down, pondering the usual question of what dreams are and whether or not there's something to those multi-dimensional theories. As I approach the ground I see two DC's. I call out to them to get their attention and freak them out with my flight. They notice but are not impressed or concerned.

When I get to the ground there's a short cliff and a building to my left. I walk over and let myself drop to the cliffs bottom. The building is built into the cliff and the basement is now at what I perceive as ground level. It looks like a school. I enter. A man walks by and I give him an acknowldeging glance and brief hello. I keep it to myself that he's not real  ;). I decide to find a girl. I had just passed a men's room and the ladies room is nearby no doubt. I see a room that is glassed in that appears like a dental training area. There are numerous chairs, dentists and patients. I find the ladies room and enter.

There are only two stalls and both doors appear open. I hear someone peeing. I wonder how hot she is? My subconscious rarely lets me down. I let her finish and walk over. I peer into the stall ... it's a little girl, perhaps 4-5 years old  :oops:.  She doesn't seem to care I just peered in. I back out the way I came. That was weird. I soon wake.

Extended Transition + Uncooperative Wife  :sad1:

The G is kicking in and I'm getting some really intense HI. First I'm at the top of a cliff looking down into a pond. It is crystal clear and appears 50-100 feet deep. Next I'm in the water. I purposely imagine swimming through it to stabilize the dream. It is cool and light (unlike salt water). The dream is almost there but I lose it. Next I'm engaged in sexual activity with some woman in my bed. She's blond with short hair. Again, the dream is not quite stable. I enter her and we do it missionary with my arms hooking her legs up. The dream is almost stable but again I lose it.

I wake (FA) and find a pair of legs on my chest just like the previous scene. I roll off the couch realizing that I'm obviously still dreaming. The legs are no where to be found. I decide to see what's going on upstairs ... I have a specific scenario in mind. When I climb the stairs however, all I hear is snoring. I get to the bedroom and wake my snoring wife. I yank down her pants and start stratching her from butt all the way down to her feet which she likes. After a minute of this, I part her legs and give her a little oral. She jumps up in surprise and starts complaining. Uh ... "I thought you would like it?". "You know, this is a dream - in fact it's my lucid dream and you could be a little more cooperative". She scoffs at this idea and I'm not in the mood for an arguement. I leave and head downstairs to plan B.

I exit the house and fly to the top of the roof for a better view. I'm looking to see if I can materialize my target beach. However, once I get up there the scene changes and I lose lucidity. I'm now sitting on a small brick wall at the corner of our old intermediate school. I'm watching cars pull up to pick up the kids. I wake.


Mid Air Acrobatics

I'm walking back to my house in the evening. I look down and my watch shows 5:00 am. I instantly realize I'm dreaming. I'm ready to fly back up to the roof for another go at beach spotting. When I fly up however it's so effortless that I forgo the roof idea and just fly straight up hundreds of feet. The higher I fly, the brighter it becomes. I eventually have to squint because the sun is now incredibly bright in the clear blue skies.

While my view is not great behind mostly closed eyes, my control of the flight is excellent. I start doing all kinds of acrobatics (flips, spins, etc ...). I do this for a minute or so before waking (FA).

I'm now in a bathroom in my parents old NY house. I reflect on how cool the flight was. I'm a little disoriented, almost like coming out of a brief hallucinagenic experience. My dog comes to the door and I suspect she needs to go out. We head to the back door and I let her out. She bolts toward the path in the woods, then comes full circle and appears to be chasing one of her friends we rarely see (a grey dog). Then I notice a german shepard, and finally a deer. The deer has what appears to be a fawn in her mouth, but I'm concerned it might be my dog. I get upset and put on my shoes to investigate. As I walk in the back I realize I'm at the NY house and hence dreaming. I consider flying north to get to the beach but I'm again distracted by another event. There is a small fire starting in the woods on the perimeter of the yard. I walk over to investigate. I realize I have a dream mask on and pull it off of me (?). Now there are two fires and they are spreading. I lose lucidity with all these distractions. I decide to bat the fire with a towel that has conveniently shown up in my hands. This works very well on the 2nd fire and I make my way to the first, but wake.

My Target Beach - Surreal

I wake, not sure how long I've been sleeping. I look to the clock which shows 5:44. I look down to the NT which shows minutes left as 4%. 4 minutes would have been reasonable, 4% not. Dreaming!

I sit up and the clock now shows as blank, a nice convenient verification. I get up and walk to my usual space/time portal (wall next to the TV). I find the speaker has already been moved out of the way. I kneel down and place my hands on the wall. I haven't done this in a while and can't make quick progress. I place my hands a little higher and massage the wall trying to soften it. I imagine my target beach on the other side. The wall softens and I push through.

As is often the case, I find myself in a black void. I stand and start to walk. I find it hard to walk and intuitively decide to turn and walk backwards which is more effective. I turn again and suddenly the scene opens up in front of me. It's the ramp to my beach and I see my rock about 300 feet ahead, though it's position is about 50 feet too far to the west. A very dramatic song starts playing in my head. I think it's an old Moody Blues song. But the scene itself is very surreal. It looks more like I've been embedded into a video game. I soar down the ramp which is at about a 20 degree angle. By the time I've looked up again the scene is different. The jetty which is actually several hundred yards west is right in front of me and I nearly crash into it. The jetty is also too far up the beach and it's completely exposed since it appears to be low tide. I use my legs to bounce of it and continue my flight to the location my rock should be.

There are scattered boulders and rock formations, but I can't find my specific rock. I wake.

The walking backwards in the void seems like a great idea.  You say that was intuitive. . . have you ever done that before?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical March 29, 2009, 02:04:36 PM
walking backwards? No, not in a dream per say, but definately in real life. You have a little more power walking backwards like that, when you're out and about in a hurricane. And yes, I should have been dead about 20 times over.

Up at 3 for WBTB +G. Dozed on the couch till 4:35 (weird dreams but no lucids)


Let's Try the Wall Thing Again

I have a series of vibrations and ride them out. When they stop I'm convinced I'm dreaming. I open my eyes and notice the pillows of the couch. They look so real ... the color and especially the texture and imperfections. I almost want to think it's NOT a dream. I get up and head to the wall. I kneel and move the speaker out of my way. I place both hands on the wall and massage it hoping to soften the wall. Again, the wall seems so real (the slight coolness and texture to the paint). The wall softens and I push my way through.

Once in the wall, I'm again in a black, jello-like void with occasional light shimmers. I plan to do exactly what I did last time and perfect it. I turn, walk backwards for a bit, and then turn again imagining my target beach upon turning. Unfortunately, this time it doesn't work. I turn and there's nothing different. I ponder this for a moment. What to do? Just then, a scene starts to form to my right. I feel stuck in this void and can't move well and I don't actually integrate into the scene. I'm more an observer.

The scene itself is looking into a large apartment or hotel room. It has enormous windows and looks out to a beach scene. The room must be on a cliff based on the relative position of the water. The feel of the room and look of the beach and boats leads me to believe it's a scene on the mediteranean, perhaps Italy? I take in the scene for a bit and then wake (FA).

I look at the VCR clock and it says 4:35. How can that be? I look at the kitchen clock and it says 3:15? That's even odder as I know I watched some Jay Leno when I got up at 3? I look to the VCR again and it says 3:15 now  ???. Oh ... duh! Still dreaming.

I notice the light is on in my wifes office. I walk over. There's someone in the 1st floor bathroom but I ignore it. My wife is at her desk which is on the wrong wall (west wall). I walk over and drop my pants hoping for a little attention. She's not immediately into it. I eventually coax her into playing though. Then she really gets into it. Somehow her lucid techniques always seem a little more ambitious than IRL. At one point she stops, looks at me and says "sometimes guys like it when they get their balls licked" - apparently asking for my interest level. Uh ... OK, go ahead  ;)  I wake soon after.

 A very lucid and near lucid evening


Rare 1st REM cycle Lucid

I find myself in the backyard and begin to fly. This clues me into tha fact that it's a dream of course. I make my way toward the front of the house doing various acrobatic maneuvers. After flying a few hundred feet or so with lot's of flips, hair pin turn etc ... I wake.  I find myself on the couch and my wife has on Oprah.  O_O What the F happened to Oprah's hair  ???


Really Should Have Figured it Out

This dream was also early in my sleep cycle ... I'm outside talking to various people. We're all overlooking a large meadow. It would be wonderful to fly over. I mention to various people I run into that in a lucid dream, you could run/leap and fly over the meadow. Everyone seems skeptical. Then I intuitively know that a woman who is in ear shot of my conversations is also a lucid dreamer and we give each other an acknowledging glance. I walk over and tell her that they all think I'm crazy. She sympothizes. I wake.


Intermediate Task - Light Bulb  (CES Induced)

I leave my magic wand and a light bulb out on the countertop and do some CES, reviewing my intentions, etc. The dream:

I am in a house I don't recognize and decide to drop a match on the floor. I exit the house. Some time passes and I come back to this house, though it now seems much more like my present day home. I figure it's probably on fire by this point? I enter and my mom is there. There are flames and a glare coming from the room to the rear. The house is now exactly like my present home. I investigate since I'm quite upset my home is on fire. On entering the room, the fire is only a small one coming from the fire place (which we never really use). I ask my mom when it was started and she says yesterday. This all immediately strikes me as unreasonable and I realize I'm dreaming.

I go back to the kitchen and grab my wand and light bulb. The first thing I try is holding the bulb in my left hand and raking the tip of the wand across my left arm from shoulder to hand trying to push my bio energy into the bulb to slowly light it ... nothing. Then I try simply waving the wand above the bulb and imaging it slowly lighting ... again nothing. I get frustrated and decide to exit the house. My manuevering is lightning fast - where did that come from? I exit with my wand and bulb still in hand.

I decide to walk backwards up the driveway for reasons unknown. Then I see the light bulb light up. Oh .. it's because I'm approaching the lampost. No, that's not it. Not directly. As I get in closer and closer proximity to the lampost, the light bulb lights up brighter and brighter, like it's somehow catching the light particulars and amplifying them. This is different than the lamposts affect on the rest of my body and clothes. Hmmm, maybe my wand did place some kind of weird spell? I realize that my wand is now a small wiffleball bat. I toss the bat and the bulb on the ground and move one.

I decide to look for a woman. I pick an arbitrary house and figure maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. I choose one, enter the door and go up the stairs as it's a weird split level design. When I get to the main floor there's a small dog growling at me. I ignore it. But the dog gets the home owners attention - a guy of about 25. He says "oh, you must be looking for "X" " (I forget X's name now?). Then in comes X. She's in her early 20's and totally hot. She says "Oh hi Mr K" (I'm immediately thinking Mister? Well she certainly isn't viewing me as a sex toy  :sad1:). She goes on to explain that she has to pick up some make-up samples for work and doesn't really have time for me right now. I've had enough of this scene and decide to move on.

I exit and head outside. I take a running start and leap in the air. But the view in front of me has changed to a tall piece of drywall and ceiling. I fly through the ceiling experiencing the sensations of flying through this solid object. I slow and use my legs to push some, but it's very thick. I wake - to the sound of loud footsteps in the room above.

Really Should Have Figured it Out
Do you usually figure this kind of thing out? I mean, if DCs are talking about dreams and stuff?

IRL I often think about how cool some place would be to fly over lucid.. How could you possibly explain that to someone? :chuckle:

Usual G/C dose but wo/ Theanine. Not as stable or satisfying as usual. Lots of sexually related lucids and non-lucids


Who's in K's Office?

I am drinking some coffee and in the process of spilling it over the edge of the cup and onto myself. I'm in the library and I realize it's the middle of the night. I also realize the light is on in K's office. Oh ... dreaming.

By the time I get to her office, the light is off but there is a figure I can roughly make out, sitting on her chair. I whip it out and nudge my way over. But all I'm met with is chair. Hmmm. I decide to go upstairs. K is in bed and I pull down my pants and underwear, but have trouble removing either completely. I give up and hop in bed. We play for a few moments but  I wake.


Weird Trance Induced Lucid

I have several non-lucids where I get vibrations by staring at an object. I belive I'm awake at this point and decide to stare at an imperfection on the wall. I get strong vibrations which eventually end. I realize I'm dreaming and probably were all along.

I have some trouble getting about but manage to make my way upstairs for round two. Upon going up the stairs I hear the unmistakable sound of K's AC powered vibrator (yeah, like how many of you ladies don't own one of those? I would have a collection if I was a woman  ;) ). Oh, she's getting herself ready  :). I make my way upstairs, pull her out of bed, bend her over the nightstand etc ...


Trance Induced Lucid #2

Kinda the same thing. I focus on a point on the floor, get vibrations due to the trance like state and realize I'm dreaming (and probably was for some time - i.e. INRALD). Everything seems so real, even the clocks are synchronous and reasonable. But I have a little trouble moving which further convinces me of my state. I head upstairs for round 3.

I hop in bed and rouse my wife. This gets weird  O_O. I enter her from behind while we're still on our sides. It's dark and I can't see well. But I soon realize that her torso has sort of twisted around 180 degress  ???. I pull out and put her on her stomach and enter her from behind (if you know what I mean  :angel:). Usually she's into this in my lucids, this time not. She does nothing but complain and it gets distracting. I wake.

Trying to Write Some Music (CES Induced)

I do a WBTB and make sure to leave out my wand and my 7 string Ibanez by the kitchen counter top - should I become lucid in the house. The plan is to retrieve the guitar and see what I come up with.

The Dream:

I'm lying on the couch and I vaguely hear some music. No - it's a radio and it's mostly static and voices. Very faint. I take this all for granted. I sit up and see the radio laying on the floor, it's one of our old panasonic "boxes" from many years ago. I lie back down. Then it hits me (more due to the sounds than the radio itself) - dreaming!

I get very excited to try my new task. I look up to the VCR clock as a sanity check and it shows "16". Definately dreaming. I go over to the countertop and nightlight area and sure enough my guitar is sitting propped up against the counter and garbage can. The first thing I notice though is the strap is missing. I fish around for the pick I left on the counter top. It's there but hard to pick up for some odd reason. I also realize it's not the purple pick I left out but one of my old "Sam Ash" picks from the mid 80's" I finally manage. I prop the guitar up on my leg while still standing and try to play (in a bug rush). This is cumbersome. I try to relax and head back to the couch. I sit on the edge and try to get comfortable.

I'm very nervous about wakinig up and anxious to write. Why hadn't I tried this before? A riff comes to mind and I work out the rough details. Not something I would be immediately inclined to come up with. A little Diamond Darrel inspired I think (Pantera). I wake.

Back to RL:

I think about the riff a little. I grab my guitar and verify to fret positions of the notes (in the dream they were off by one fret - based on the pitch I remember). Much like I always do, I take the core inspired idea and re-work it some. Interesting. I might have to continue writing this piece in my dreams. I've always had the theory that most creative works are already sitting in your subconscious. They just need the proper tools to release them.

It has been said that the greatest of composers and song writers are but translators, tapped in to something bigger at a thin point in the veil.

I know that my best material has come from I don't know where.  The ones that require effort and work are never as good as the ones that just "arrive".

Let's hear it!  ;-D

Careful what you ask for MB. How's your love of stoner thrash metal rating nowdays? Actually I plan to work on it some (in both my real and dreamspace) and maybe post it as my advanced task solution.


Last night I had a 2 hour unplanned WBTB (just very restless). I fell asleep on the 3 am repeat of Leno where he had on Spinal Tap. The Dream:


Spinal Tap on TV

I'm on the couch trying to doze when I hear Spinal Tap playing "Hell Hole". At first, it's a cheesy scene with them doing an accoustic version but the set looks like a 70's game show. I note that Nigel is singing which isn't correct, David sang that song. The scene changes to a dark stage. It's blurred out and I try to fix the scene. I wonder if it's the TV. I change the channel one up and it's the same scene. Oh ... dreaming!

I get up quite amazed how real everything feels. I make my way to the door for ultimate confirmation that I'm dreaming. Can I make it warm out? Sure enough I exit and I'm greated by a nice balmy evening. It's also very windy. I follow my instincts and jump in the air. I flap and easily gain altitude to climb slightly higher than all the neighborhood trees. I see a branch which looks like a nice parking spot. I also give some consideration to the basic task of the month. I hold onto the branch and easily float in mid air. I'm quite comfortable and just considering my options. For some reason  I wake prematurely.

2 lucids, one better than the other and 1 bizarre nightmare


Trying to Write Some Music #1

I am trying to sleep having affirmed my intention to get lucid in the house and grab my guitar. I find myself dozing off and feel like I'm on my stomach on top of a woman who is naked, in fact we both are. I am not fully aware at this point and start instincively grinding against her. Then I notice a reflection of the TV in the window next to the couch. I consider that a dreamsign even though that window isn't even there IRL and that in and of itself doesn't hit me. I have a floating then falling sensation and realize I must have fully entered the dream.

I sit up and look at the VCR clock and it's blank. Definately dreaming. I get up but as soon as I reach the floor and struck with terrible paralysis. I struggle to move but can't. My dog walks over to investigate and I swat her away. I struggle which is probably the exact wrong thing to do. I get pissed, as this early WILD paralysis hasn't happened to me in a while. I wake.


Trying to Write Some Music #2

I wake fromo the previous dream and sit still. Sure enough I feel vibrations and pull off a DEILD. I'm back on the couch. Usually the paralysis issue is only on my first WILD and sure enough, I can sit up, check the clock, and get up freely. I go over to othe kitchen counter and grab my guitar and pick. I sit back down on the couch and start working on my new piece.

I work through the first sequence of riffs I already have and the next moevement hits me immediately, without any real need to think about it or work out the fingering. I play around with this new idea some. I'm very comfortable and getting somewhat lost in my creativity. I think to myself that it will be fun to transition from this little projected creative state back to the real world where I'm sleeping on my RHS. Before long I do just that.

I review the new riff in my mind and grab my guitar for real. As before, the frettings were off by one whole note relative to the pitch I remember, but I'm able to find it easily enough and lock the idea into my mind.


Weird Epic Nightmare

I'm in my yard when the girl from the house behind yells over to my wife. They are both in princess outfits (the girl and my wife) complete with tierras. The girl points out some traffic cones in her yard. My wife walks over to me and tells me that the girl wants us to know that the cones are their property. I jokingly tell my wife to go back to the girl and tell her I'll be coming back for my cones tonight.

There's a guy finishing up some work at my house. It's 6:00 om and just about dinner time but I'm considering doing some brown paint touch-ups to the porch. Scene change ...   I'm in a recreation center of a church. There are multi-level wood stands (like at a baseball field) in a tall room. I am supposed to paint them. I then realize they are stained not painted. I find this to be a relief as I don't need to do the work, but then realize that the stain can use some touch ups as well. I notice a few people on the stands and they ask me a question , as if I have some authority and interest in the church functions. I do my best to fake an answer and I get ignored. They start talking over me. The lead guy seems intent to carry through on this elaborate plan to raise money for the church. Scene change ...

I'm on a large bus with the same people from the previous scene. We're going northbound on the road next to the motorola campus. I plan to meet my wife at my old apartment since the house is being worked on. I wonder what she'll do about our dog? My wife is not keen on having the dog in her BMW. I hope she doesn't leave the dog behind. I climb over some seats and people as there is no aisle and tell the driver to turn left and stop at my old apartment. Scene change ...

We are now on a busy street in NYC. The bus driver is tailgating a bicyclist. The car in front of the bike stops short and I see the bus ram into the bicycle rider and crash him - I see the entire scene unfold. The driver instinctively (and haphazardly) backs up 5 feet without even checking who is behind us. We all jump out. The bike is crushed but the driver is gone? We then realize he's under the car. A bunch of guys decide to rotate the car to expose the victim. I am too lazy to help and decide it's pointless as he's obviously dead. They expose the victim. He is face down in a pool of blood. He is not moving.

There are a number of police cars cruising the parallel street and I run over to try to flag one down. By the time I get there the police car parade has stopped. But I see a fire dept and run over. When I get there I can't figure out what door to use. The adjacent business is a porn shop and most of the doors lead to the adult store. I finally find the right door and climb a stair well. There are two unmarked doors. I go up another flight, same thing. This repeats one more time. Is this the right place? I study the pattern of tile on the floor. It's very old style New York City. It's very warm and steamy in the building. I think about what would have happened if I'd followed in my fathers foot steps and became a NYC police officer. It's a pleasant enough enviroment, this building. I feel very much at home here.

Finally a fireman in more formal dress uniform comes out and I ask if anyone called in the event yet? He says no but will check. We head downstairs. I tell him I'll run to the scene and see if police and paramedics are there yet. I run avoiding a few cars and see the police on the scene. I give him a thumbs up to confirm and he nods.

When I get there the cars have been removed and police are searching the area with dogs, presumably for signs of drugs. The body is covered with a blanket, he's obviously dead. The police are busy interviewing people and writing reports. As I make my way toward the dead guy, he rises up and the white blanket falls. His face has no flesh, it's just a skull and he has long blond straggly hair. He gets up and heads my way. I'm his focus and he is clearly pissed off at me for some reason. I wake.

IDK. I'll need to do this a lot more before formng an opinion. My first crack at this was a CES night. Last night was G/C. Last night was a better experience but probably because I was less anxious, having done the basic task of finidng a guitar and writing some music previously.

It's an interesting dream task. My whole perspective is slightly altered in my dreamspace and this seems to have its advantages in terms of creativity. I must thank whoever came up w/ the advanced task of the month.

RSILD (Rock Star Induced Lucid Dream) - CES Induced

I'm in a small diner, with one corridor and booths on each side. I feel like I need to leave and do so. I exit and walk a few feet to the right when it feels like I really need to get back. I'm a little confused. I approach the diner once again and out comes another patron. It's Tom Petty (more like a guy who looks like Phil Specter but has Tom Petty's hair). He gives me a big hello like he knows me well (even uses my name). I do my best to fake a big hello back.

Once in the diner again, I wonder how Petty knows me? Maybe we met in college via my old roomate TJ? As I walk along the corridor the booths on each side leave very little room to walk and the ceiling is low. Everything is kind of scrunched in. I get all the way to the back. I ponder the Petty thing some more before it finally hits me ... dreaming!

Making my way out the front door seems like too much trouble. I see some swinging doors to the kitchen and choose that route. I only have the basic task left and decide to find a tree to climb. A brief entry into the kitchen finds another door and I use it to exit the building.  The dream feels very real and very stable. I spot a tree and make my way over. The first limbs are about 7 feet up and I'm inclined to jump, but it all feels so real that I become a little concerned about missing. I get closer and realize it's a poor climbing tree. The limbs are thin and too dense. also, the tree is right next to a post that supports power lines. One of the power lines terminates into the post itself (like a poor grounding attempt). I make one attempt to grab a branch and find my way up but this tree is just too problematic to climb. I give up and move on.

I walk along a hillside. It's a very pleasant day - I ponder how real it all feels. I see a number of large trees ahead. None of these are good climbing trees either. They have thick branches but they start too high up and each tree only has a few branches. One tree catches my eye however as it has a thick horizontal branch about 20 feet up which would make for a good seat.

I make my way over to that tree and remind myself it's only a dream. I fly up to the branch and have seat. I take in the scene some. It's very reminiscent of Locust Valley NY, not far from where I grew up. I sit there another minute appreciating the scene before I wake.

G/C night. Working on the dream PSI experiment. Massive trouble getting back to sleep. I was pondering what card was left on the counter and had a feeling it was the 3 of clubs. Eventually I fall asleep and have 1 DEILD.


Dream PSI G/C #1

I wake from a pleasant dream where A and I are at mom and dad's old home iin Bayville. I peak from my eyes and notice the sun is up. I close them again and lie still. Shortly thereafter, I feel vibrations and transition back to my dreamspace. I open my eyes and as expected I'm on my dream couch.

I have a little trouble moving and roll over onto the floor. My upper body is fine, but my legs are not responding. In fact, my feet seem stuck together. I have one goal, get to the counter and flip the card. I start pulling myself across the floor with my arms. I have about 15 feet to go. I get a little concerned I'll wake and try to ignore that concern, focusing more on traversing the necessary path. I get to the counter.

At this point, I'm somehow able to stand. I look at the spot where the card was left and a black guitar pick is in it's place (a leftover from last weekends task  :?). I flip the pick figuring a number might be on the bottom, to no avail. I notice a pile of miscellaneous junk to the left. There are many playing cards. Some are face up. Others are down, but the design implies they are from a different deck entirely. I then see one face down card from the desired deck. I'm expecting clubs, 2-5.

I pull the card and flip it. 8 of clubs ???. I ponder the meaning of this and wake.


I go over to the counter and flip the card. 2 of clubs. I was thinking 3 intuitively and pulled an 8 of the proper suite. Should I have taken the 3rd root of 8 to arrive at the right answer? I'm screwed if my brain is going to make it that tough. My next try will be a CES induced attempt.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical April 18, 2009, 09:58:56 AM
Dream PSI experiment #2 (CES Induced)

I'm sitting on the couch looking at two playing cards. One is a 10 of clubs and looks quite normal. The other appears to be a three, but it has black hearts as a suite. This second card also appears to be cropped incorrectly as the line of three large hearts in the middle looks fine, there are small hearts at the two corners, but there is no room for the actual number three.

I sense there is something wrong here and realize they are from different decks. I flip them. The 10 is from the deck I am most familiar with. The three has a backing which is simply blank. I study this another moment or two before it hits me. This is not a reasonable card, it's impossible and I must be dreaming. I wake rather automatically.


************

I head to the counter and pull the playing card I left behind, rather expecting a 3. I get a 5. OK - a miss. I then think about this a little more and realize there was no "3" on the bad playing card I drew, but there WERE 5 black hearts. Did my subconscious pick up on the number 5 and use that mechanism to convey the info?

Playing cards are obviosly a bad choice. They are simply too complex. I will be modifying the experimental definintion.

Dream PSI #3 (CES Induced)

I am trying to get back to sleep but my mind is very restless. I try counting and visualizing numbers backwards, from 100 down to steady my mind. By the time I get to 90 I feel myself entering sleep. I have a very blissful disorientation, vibrations and an odd visual of streaks of light going left to right and back in an arc, almost like a rainbow. When the vibrations stop, I am sure I'm dreaming.

I get up and get my footing. The dream is not 100% stable yet. I head to the counter and easily find my Zener card. I put the night-light on (which only provides minimal brightness) and flip the card. I can't see it that well and head to the night-light by the sink instead.

The card itself is not one of the standard cards. It looks like an integral sign (as in calculus). It is spinning like the needle of a compass. Its rotation is clockwise and it's stopping at about 5-6 discreet and equally distanced points along the perimeter it's tracing. I make the obvious conclusion. It looks the most like the wavy lines. I figure I'll keep going with the dream and do a little flying. But I wake prematurely.

***************

I head to the counter, let some anticipation build and flip the real card. Star.

Should I have thought about this more? Was that one line spinning and hitting five equally spaced points along a circle really indicative of tracing out the points of a star? Star was not the obvious choice, but clearly a better one had I thought about this more.

Dream PSI #4 (CES Induced)

I find myself shuffling a small stack of Zener cards in the kitchen. When I look down to pick the top card and place it on the counter top, I notice that I actually have a full deck of playing cards and most of them are face up. The two top cards are both the ace of hearts. The top one is upright and the second card is upside down. I realize this is no good and walk over to the kitchen table to re-shuffle, etc ...

I realize that my wife is up and all the lights are on in the den. Why is she up? Doesn't she know I plan to LD? I walk over toward the den to chase her upstairs. In doing so however there is a bit of a scene change. The lights are now off and I instinctively make my way over to the kitchen counter again. I notice one zener card out and my magic wand. However, my wand has been pushed over a few feet. Who moved it? I have no idea but find this peculiar. I move it back where it belongs. I also notice that the nightlight is quite dim and looks more like a black light. Am I dreaming?

I try to hover in mid air and almost pull it off. But I sink back to the floor. I flap to try gain bouyancy that way. But my flapping propels me across the floor instead. I zoom across the floor like it's make of ice. OK, definately dreaming. But I wake.

*****************************************

Well I never pulled a card, but I realized the clear message was two hearts, flipped around 180 degrees from one another. Is that a:


circle

plus sign

square

star

3 parallel wavy lines

Dream PSI - Gamma 1

I feel myself drifting off and I'm pretty sure I've transitioned. I sit up and note the clock on the VCR. It's washed out and unreadable. Definately dreaming. Like all G/C induced first WILDs, it's not that stable yet and I struggle to make my way around. I eventually get to the kitchen counter. The second card from the left seems very appealing, like this is the one I should pull. I do. I'm still having some vision problems and squint to make out the circle. I make a mental note.

At this point, my body gets very light. In fact, my feet start floating off the ground. I just go with it. A force pulls my feet up and I slowly flip upside down. I start to rise, and pass through the kitchen roof and out into the night sky. I keep floating up further and further. My sight is lousy, but the sensations are very real and very blissful. I wake after a minute or so.

********************

I proceed to have about 2-3 FA's where I think I've woken and pull the circle to verify the card ID was correct. When I eventually wake for real, I pull a star. Miss.


Bar Pick-up

I'm at some random bar talking to a guy. I realize I'm dreaming because I'm simply out of place here. I look around. This dream is very stable and I look around enjoying the detail of the scene and the richness of the different DC's and their appearances. There are quite a few nice looking woman and instinct kicks in. I start walking around to find one. I note one girl who seems strikingly familiar. I can't place her (and still can't now). But I know her somehow. She has on a black dress and has short black hair. Very pretty face and eyes. I walk over and disturb her conversation with several other ladies. I take her by the hand and tell her "I have something to tell you". She complies.

We walk around. I'm looking for a little privacy. I see what appears to be a closet. I hope it's a door to a room and open it. Sure enough, it's a small room. I do the obvious. I pull down my pants and underwear. She looks very surprised. I do some quick thinking and tell her "well, you kinda owe me a favor". She says, "well, I guess so" (or words to that effect) and smiles. Even though she's incredibly cute, I notice that she has really small teeth when she smiles. Who cares  :D. She services me for a minute or so until  I wake.


Basic Task - Tree Climb

I have a series of vibrations. I get up and the TV is on playing the tonight show and the time shows around 2:00 am. These are both impossible, I'm clearly dreaming. Again, it's a little unstable. I head outside for the basic task. As soon as I leave the door, I imagine the dream to be more cohesive and imagine the time to be daytime. This works very well and clears things up. I walk over to our huge austrian pine. I need to walk around it once or twice as there are not many good starting points for the climb.

I eventually find a branch low enough to jump up to, grab with my right hand and swing myself up, using my left hand to grab a wider branch. As I start traversing to tree I notice two things. First, how realistic the pine needles and bark feel. Second, some of the thin branches are very strong and some of the thick ones are not supporting me well. I also notice the sun as it's now very strong. The warmth is a welcome relief from our lousy weather. I climb another branch or two.

I then grab one branch with both hands. I'm pulling myself up when I realize it's going to give. I don't really care since it's only a dream. Sure enough, it cracks and we both fall. The point of the break lands directly into the ground. I'm unharmed. I flap and start flying upwards, and leave the tree behind. I soon wake.

Day 2 of an ADR cycle (hadn't used it in quite some time)


Finding S at the Rock
 
I am at our old Plainview, NY house. It's a family gathering of some kind and we are all outside on the driveway where there are two tables set up. I am not in a social mood and feel uncomfortable for some reason. I sit at the table which is empty. My brother is there as well and he and I are present day age. My father is kidding about how he's never going to see his kids leave for good. I gather that both B and I are out of work and must have moved back in with dad. I start thinking up a rationalization such as "well you wouldn't want to see me throw away my money to rent would you" but never offer it up. I take some offense to the conversation and leave for my bedroom.

When I get there I look at my computer and decide to pull-up e-mail. I have several messages from Moonbeam and an update from SStride. I decide to read them later and hop into bed for a nap.

I find myself in our next house which was in Bayville, NY. I am with my daughter and she is making a party for me. I'm walking through the Laundry room with a styrofoam cup of crispy white noodles (the kind that come with Mongolian Beef). I am asking my daughter where the party will be and taking large amounts of noodles and shoving them down when I realize I'm in the Bayville house with A and hence dreaming. I'm not sure what to do yet? I see some fruit in a basket at the usual place. I ask her if I can bring an apple to the party. She agrees. I walk over and the pears look better so I grab one. I rinse it and cut it in half. I'm a little nervous about waking but remind myself that my ADR lucids are usually very long and stable. Then it hits me ... why am I wasting my time with fruit? I tell A that I need to get to the rock and excuse myself. She follows anyway which I figure is fine.

I leave through the laundry room door, take a half pear in one big bite, put the other half in my back pocket (yeah, I don't know?) and start running. I make a split second decision ... jog on the ground or fly? I head left and fly. After running 150 feet or so I leap in the air and flap. The sky is crystal clear and it's early morning. As soon as I get about 50 feet in the air, I can see the shoreline. The water is unusually clear as well. I realize a nice slow but steady pace toward the rock. I'm several nundred feet in the air at this point. I think about that song I heard last time on route to the rock in a previous lucid and it starts up in my mind again. Well that's weird, what the significance? I'm now over the water which is unusually low. It's an absolutely beautiful flying experience. So peaceful. I see a jetty that is not there IRL. I keep going. I reduce my altitude some.

Then I see it. My rock - there's no doubt. I reduce my altitude some more until I'm flying about 5 feet off the ground. I'm still "swimming" through the air. I feel very confident I can make it this time. As I'm about to hit it, I see someone coming from the corner of my right eye. At the last minute I realize it's S! I basically crash into him, give him a hug and yell "Scott, it's me!". I wake (FA).

I'm at a beach sitting with S. I ask him if he remembers the dream? I want to know if we connected in some sense? He doesn't. I'm surprised because that crash landing at the end certainly would have startled him and woke him up out of his own dream? He asks me if I got all those e-mails today and if I know what happened? I tell him I haven't read them yet. He explains that EA died last night of a coke overdose. I feel bad but not too bad. "Coke? Boy you need to do a lot of that to die on it". There's a small kid there with a toy that has little characters. He seems to want to play with me so I comply. He has a specific way he plays, but I go on to explain that sometimes it's fun if you make up different rules. He watches the way I play but is not too pleased. I wake for real.

Dream PSI - Gamma 2 (CES Induced)

I had been doing some BW entrainment and find myself on the couch without my NeuroTrek on. Weird, I don't remember taking it off? Then I realize that even though I'm not wearing it, I feel a pulsating at my ears. Oh - I'm clearly dreaming while wearing it. OK. I get up and head to the kitchen counter. I then realize I'm wearing the NT again. I pull it with me and get over to my Zener cards. The card which is 2nd from the right looks most appealing. I sense it might be a circle and that's what I expect. Sure enough, I pull a circle. I think about this for a moment or two before  waking.

***********************

NOTE: I woke and found wavy lines for real. But I really did this wrong. By imagining a circle I influenced the dream and that's what popped up. I need to let the dream decide to to show, NOT me influence the dream.



Dream PSI - Gamma 3 + Some Cool Flying and Swimming (CES Induced)

I'm on the couch and feel the need to create a Holloween costume of some kind. I decide to paint my face some kind of scary pattern. I start looking around for A's play make-up. I look in a box and find another NT. I grab it. It looks correct except the display is toward the bottom instead of the top. OK- definately dreaming.

I head to the counter and pull the same positioned card (after a re-shuffle last time). As before, I kind of goof up the experiment by imagining a cross and that's exactly what I got. The dream is still nice and stable and I head to the front door. I briefly consider waking my dream wife for sex, but choose not to. I exit. I get a good run going and leap in the air. I turn left and start flying west bound. I pass several houses and admire how well replicated they are in my dreamspace. I decide to fly to the small lake by us. I approach it and swoop under some tree limbs and enter the lake area.

At a distance I see a large sailing ship, more like something from the 1500's. How cool! I head that way. However, by concentrating more on the flight and what's below me, by the time I look up again it's just a small motor boat. When I eventually reach that area I decend and enter the water. I continue a swimming motion and try to reach the boat which is parking at a marine store. The store itself seems to sell some basic provisions, gas and fishing stuff. I briefly think about how nice it is to have a tackle shop near our house, then have to remind myself that it's just a dream. A family departs from the boat. They either don't see me or don't care - but they totally ignore me.

After they leave I study their boat. I don't recognize the engine make but it's 88 HP, which is an odd engine size. I think about what to do next? Maybe I should get out of the water, steal their boat and go for a joy ride? Yes - that's a good idea. But I wake at this point.

********************

As before, I really goofed this experiment. But for the record, I pulled a square for real.

Well time will tell how well it works for everyone else. Without double checking my notes, I have only missed a few times in about 45 attempts. This rate of success is consistent with galantamine for me. However, there are pros/cons.

Galantamine clearly has a short term and perhaps long term tolerance effect. It also has the potential to cause insomnia. BUt ... sometimes I get crazy lucid (i.e. 3-5 lucids).

CES typically gives me one, perhaps two lucids, no insomnia and better cognitive recovery. Also I really don't think there is a tolerance issue here.

Hey, cool experiments!  This is fascinating.
I'm impressed you even remember to do it every night.  Here's an idea:  If you can't help thinking what it is before looking at it, maybe the card is not what it appears to be.  Maybe keep turning the card over until it changes?
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical April 27, 2009, 09:26:38 AM
@ LB:  Yeah, I don't want to sound like I'm pushing techniques on anyone. That's not the point. But it's hard to imagine being really into LDing and not leveraging some of the technology out there. I don't have many lucids without some help.

@Mu:  That's a good idea, flipping the card over several times. I think I'll quickly get to the point where I can review the 5 possibilities, blank my mind and then flip one. The only practical concern is getting a symbol which does not clearly match one of the 5. Then I need to map it as best I can.

What are Zener cards?

And you're not pushing it on anyone, but everyone dabbles in lots of stuff to see what works best for them, that's natural.

What are Zener cards?


See my post from 4/22/09 in my DJ. Zener cards are often used in PSI experiments ( tests to investigate clairvoyance, telepathy, etc ...). I am working on a dream precognition experiment that is described in detail in the "Deep Dreaming" folder. It's just getting started. Nothing noteable to report yet.

5 days between G/C uses. Only a modest response.


Lemmy Can't Dance

I'm in what appears to be a lecture hall with multiple rows of tables at progressively higher locations. I am seated at a table and there is a concrete support structure through the table to my immediate left. I am leaning my head against it and resting on a pillow.

Motorhead is playing a set. Lemmy is without his bass, but he is taking up the singing task. There are two guitar players and a drummer backing him. At some point I realize I'm dreaming but it's somewhat low level. I just choose to enjoy the show. I notice that Lemmy is trying to do some odd little acid dance, but it's very awkward and something he shouldn't have tried. I think to myself that he should put his bass back on. I wake.


Progressively Higher Trees

I wake (FA) and look at the clock. It's 6:28 and it's light out. I'm disappointed that I only had one lousy lucid. I take the dog outside and walk toward the back yard. I walk all the way to the end and then turn and head back to the house. I realize I only have socks on but  they are not soaked with dew. Isn't that odd? I wonder if I'm dreaming? I run toward the center cut out and leap and flap ... up I go!. Yep, dreaming.

I start a nice steady backstroke and quickly gain altitude. The scene has changed and it's dark again. But I can adequately see the trees I am rising above and passing over. Every time I get well above a line of tall trees, I rise higher and fly west bound, and again I'm confronted with a new and taller line of trees. This pattern of approaching and passing a line of trees continues a few times. I keep getting higher and higher but can't seem to leave the ground based scenery.

At one point I pass a tree which has brilliant orange leaves. They are so bright they look like they're on fire. At another point I pass a tree with beautiful burgandy leaves. After a few minutes of flying  I wake.

Skolax's Task 1 (non-lucid)

I get pulled into a court room situation. The scene is literally a shade of black and white which is unusual for me, and it it old fashioned in appearance, much like the set of the movie “To Kill A Mockingbird”. My old colleague from work is the prosecuting attorney and I get the sense that my appearance here is something of a set-up to frame the defendant. I look over to a picture I drew that is supposedly a sketch of the perpetrator. It looks exactly like the defendant. I look back and forth at the picture and defendant in an obvious manner to insure he gets nervous about my appearance.  The judge calls me to the stand and tells me to put my left hand on the bible and raise my right hand. He is distracted by my daughter who is also in attendance and starts talking about how cute she is. When he finishes praising her, we do the swearing in and I try to sit. However, the railings around the witness seat are so close together that I cannot fit into the space provided. Instead, I sit on top of the rails off to the left a little. I wake.

I hadn't solved the problem consciously, nor did a find a guru to solve it - but upon waking from the dream I reflected on the problem definition (just to insure I still had it memorized) and immediately solved the problem. Clearly, my sub-conscious took this on as background task between the time I read the question to the time I woke up at ~ 2:00 am.


NYC Disaster

I find myself at my mid-west based home, when I hear a radio report about a plane about to crash in our vicinity. I yell to me family to gather in the house. I then see the plane appraching. It's a medium sized jet and it's going to crash about 3 houses to our left. We run into the basement and brace for impact. A minute goes by and we never hear it which seems impossible.

There is a scene change. My father and I are the lone people on a bridge spanning Brooklyn to Manhattan. It's a draw bridge and the two ends are coming up to let some ship traffic through. I hold on tight to a support column while this is all happening so as to not to lose my footing and fall 100 feet down to the water.

I notice that the empire state building has smoke billowing from it. It's a pretty major fire. From our vantage point, we can also see what appears to be the main skyscraper of the new World Trade Center complex. The people of Manhattan are very panicked and I get the sense that both the new WTC skyscraper and the empire state building are in grave danger.

No, I'm sick as an friggin' dog. I had to write up Skolax's task anyway, so I cut and pasted it here too. Plus who knows, maybe there will be a fire at the empire state building. That was a very odd dream.

Lousy Flying (CES Induced)

I feel some slow rolling vibrational waves. I am pretty sure I'm drifting off into my dreamscape. When they stop, I got up quite convinced I'm dreaming.

My ability to recall my true tasks is unusually poor. I think to myself that I need to find my guitar and write some music. I head upstairs when I notice a radio on in my wife's office. She's not there. For some reason I change my mind completely and decide to head outside while the dream is still nice and stable.

I leave the house, run and leap in the air. I start flapping. I gain some altitude and stabilize. I flap again and get a little higher. However, I'm having tremendous problems gaining any decent altitude. This is pretty unusual.

I finally decide to head over to a tree to take a rest. There's a woman on the ground and she yells up to me that I should grab the thin branch I'm approaching. I do. But in grabbing this branch, it softens up and becomes more “vine like”. My weight is too much for it to bear and I fall against the tree and remain hanging from the vine. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I decide to simply fall. At this point I believe the dream goes on but I lose lucidity.


Odd Psychadelic Dream

I am in a room I don't recognize. A video is playing. The music sounds like the band Yes, but it has a more contemporary feel and sound - musically very complex and intense though. I grab a guitar and start playing along. The lead guitar player is doing a lot of playing over the vocal harmonies. But it's in good taste and I take my best stab at mimicking his playing and style.

I look to the window and realize I can see my reflection quite well. I have my Ibanez JEM on but the headstock is very long and angled downward. It also has a very ornate design on it. As I continue to watch myself play in the reflection of the mirror the scene changes. I still hear the music, but I'm in a blackened void. It's just darkness, no apparent walls, ceiling or floor. Cubes start appearing at random locations. They start small, expand out in a uniform manner and then contract back and disappear. They vary in size from 1 cubic foot to perhaps 1 cubic yard. At times there is one cube. At other times there are many. They are all very pastel and brilliantly colored ... red's, yellows, purples, etc ... I start traversing this void but it's not under my own power (i.e. - I'm not walking but rather floating through it). The dream continues but that's all I remember.

Zener Hit + Other Problem Solving (CES Induced)

I had removed the NT and was trying to fall back to sleep. I was hoping for a WILD as I had left out my Zener cards and needed to get an answer from my "guru" wife. After some time, I finally felt some vibrations and just relaxed and rode them out. When they stopped, I got off the couch quite convinced I was dreaming.

The VCR clock showed 4:51 which was reasonable, but I was not fooled - definately dreaming. I walk over to the kitchen counter where I left my cards and problem statement. The counter is a mess. The five cards and written problem statement are out, but so is my NT and a calculator. The NT is still on but I choose to ignore it. The calculator is playing a song. This is noteable but I ignore that as well. I look over to the problem statement to review it and/or see if there is an answer. The paper is very difficult to read. I will have to rely on K. Instead, I flip the right most Zener card and see the following symbol:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/59bf5653-ee0b-4d06-b441-87afca09f2ba.png)

I mentally note it and move on.

I make may way to K's office expecting her to be there. Sure enough, I hear a radio and the light is on. However, she is nowhere to be found. I head upstairs and start calling for her ... "honey, are you around?". I make my way to the bedroom and find her. She's standing next to the highboy dresser. I try to get the question out but I have trouble wording it correctly. I then realize it's not even K, but someone else. This woman looks very eastern European (hair style, and a heavy frame). I try to get the question out two more times but it's such a complex statement that I fail miserably. I take a different route. I ask "did you get a chance to read the question?". She gives me a very short "yes" response and shakes her head. I ask her what the answer is but she doesn't seem to know or she's unwilling to offer it.

This seems counterproductive so I do the obvious. I walk her over to the bed, bend her over so her torso is resting on the bed and pull down her pants. She's not that ready so I try to get a little spit going but my mouth is too dry. I tell her to wait and retrieve the lube from the nightstand. I get a generous amount going and enter her from behind while we are both still standing. I tell her that maybe she can think about the answer to the question while we're doing it?

Before long, I kind of push her higher up on the bed so that I'm still standing on the floor but she is fully supported on the bed. She puts her legs up over my shoulders, even though I'm still giving it to her from behind, as though her knees are totally double jointed. This strikes me as very odd. We continue like this for a while and I finally wake.

******************************

I walk over to the counter. The noted symbol predominantly has elements of only two cards. Star  (one triangular leg + a circle which is sort of like the pentagonal core) and Square (kind of a half square). I pick Square as the more logical choice and get ready to turn over the card. I visualize Square. But before flipping the card, I have an overwhelming gut feeling that it's really Star - and I'm quite convinced that's what I will see. Sure enough it's a star.

I added a little nicotine to the mix last night. That always yields music emanating from weird things (calculators, unseen objects, my head etc ...)

Actually, I was thinking that if you read this DJ entry you would have some kind of comment related to the new sex position I invented last night. I call it "reverse bunny ears"  :D. But of course I need a woman with double jointed knees, which I suspect is a hard find  :P

There is a weird fine line for me w/ G now. 5 days was too little between uses last time. This time was 6 days and I had a huge response, but mostly fantasy stuff (uh ... sex).  Maybe it was the two nights CES Sat and Sun mornings which was an effective pre-cursor? Don't know.


Another Zener Card Pull

I have a prolonged series of vibrations. When they stop I got up quite convinced I've transitioned. I go over to the cards and decide to pull the middle one. At the last minute I imagine square, and that's exactly what I see. I get mad that I probably goofed the experiment again. It's hard not to influence the result. I decide to go in the back yard for some good flying. I'm very excited. I exit the house and admire how real everything is, especially the shape and texture of the everygreen bush right outside the porch door. I get over excited ... should I fly south or north? I make a decision to go north and rush to the front of the house but  wake.


Being Watched

I am at a conference of some kind and decide to hit the bar. I order some bourbon on ice and await my drink. The whole seen strikes me as too disjoint and I realize I'm dreaming. My immediate instinct is to find a gal. I see a worker who is dressed in a waitress uniform and she's helping someone else. I walk over, take her hand and lead her away.

I find a ladies bathroom and we enter it. There's another sub-room through a door that leads to a private office workers space. The office is more executive in nature. I close that door behind us. I drop my pants expecting some oral. My DC complies. But to my surprise the office worker is sitting in her chair working away. This is a weird experiece at first because the other DC starts to watch without saying anything. But before long, it's kind of a turn on. Probably too much so because I wake.


Nice Garden

I'm in the front of what I believe to be my house, though it looks nothing like my RL house. I am admiring the gardening effort. Everything has filled in nicely and the design and upkeep is beautiful. I hear my wife working in the background and I'm proud of her work. I notice one browned out low lying evergreen but replacing one bush is no big deal.

My wife walks over and to my surprise she is someone else entirely, and very hot. I realize I'm dreaming. I walk her over to the garage for some privacy. We start doing it up against the car. We eventually make our way to the floor, with her on her stomach. I'm not sure what comes over me, but I start nibbling on her right ear lobe and blurt out "what would you do if you had another woman's p**** in your face right now  >:D?

Let's just say the dream totally degrades from here, but in a very hot and intense way   :angel:.


More Zener Stuff - But Important

I have a FA and go over to my Zener Cards to pull the middle card and confirm the square (though I am not confident about it. I flip the card and it's blank. I'm initially confused but then realize I'm still dreaming. I flip it again and see the following:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/e942479b-23f1-4448-90ce-23908a418b0d.png)

I note this as sort of a non-uniform octagon but with some corner jutting off of it. I conclude that the previous square + this shape is most like a plus sign. I continue on.

I leave the house, do some mediocre superman style flying and ultimately fly up to one of our neighbors houses looking for some more sex. I perch at the second floor window which is open. Everything in the room is a shade of blue and it appears to be a nursery. No one is around. I fly some more and finally  wake.


Bad Surprise?

Another FA and Zener card pull to a blank card. I realize I'm dreaming but realize I'm satisfied with the cross answer and don't need to pull any more. I leave through the back door. It's very dark and I decide to fly hoping it will clear up and become bright. That's exactly what it does. I fly around the yard some but it's very laborous. I decide to land on a fence which is not there IRL.

An Indian guy walks over to me and then a woman who has a very authorititive look. They both seem very pissed at me. I realize it's a dream and think to myself that these DC's can go F-themselves if they don't like what I'm doing. They get right up to the fence and gesture for me to come down. I do. I then proceed to punch the woman in the face (yes, this is slighly embarassing as I write). My hand hurts badly, so when I punch the guy in the face it's with a little less force. I continue on. They relent.

The scene to the south is now a beach and I wander over. A third pissed DC is heading this way. By now, there is a commotion as I seemed to have garnered everyone's attention (maybe 15-20 DC's saw the incident). This third pissed DC is older, but has a really nice body. I try a different approach. I take her by the hand and we walk into a shed (large outhouse?). I put her up against the wall and enter her from behind. She seems cool with this and is no longer mad at me. We do this for a while when she surprises me. We decouple, and she drops to her knees and simply uses her hand. But it's really good and a nice surprise. I start cumming. About 3/4 into it I get really nervous that I will soil myself IRL and wake.

Sure enough, I feel a big wet spot in my pants. I reach down to confirm. I think to myself - oh crap! Then I wake for real ( :D just a FA thank goodness).

I walk over to the counter pretty confident I will see a cross, and that is what I pull.

I'll Bet Enik Has the Answer

I am watching Land of the Lost. The father has rushed off to Eniks cave because Will and Holly are in trouble. He finds Enik and asks for his help. At this point, I am somewhat absorbed into the scene and seem to have taken the place of the father. I am several feet in front of Enik. He is very upset and quite adament in his response. He tells me:

"There is no choice, they must change the polarity of the anti-matter"

For about one second, I realize I'm dreaming but wake quickly thereafter.

I lie in bed and lock that answer in but it's not immediately obvious what the hell it means. I sleep for a few more hours, wake again and the metaphor is quite clear to me. This is the oddest dream incubation I've had in quite some time.

I did a search on Enik and found a cool T-shirt that said:

Zener Miss + My Guru Wife  (CES Induced)

I am at a gym and I'm trying to find the 105 dumbell for some one armed rows. I finally find an even larger one. It's 110 pounds and formed with discreet plates (unlike the solid 105). It is precariously perched on the rack, sitting sideways. I squat, lift it up with two hands and place it on the floor. I wake (maybe FA??).

I keep my eyes closed and relax. I feel vibrations and a transition into my dream space. I get up pretty sure I'm dreaming. I sanity check the VCR clock and the right most numbers are washed out. Definately dreaming.

I head to the counter. I have trouble moving and need to pull myself along the wall and handle of the stove. But I'm determined and make it. I pull the card second to the left and see:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/54836a94-b82b-477b-86dd-2fdc70181658.png)

I note this as most like a square. I'm satisfied that I did not pre-influence the pick and chose the right shape interpretation. I head upstairs.

I enter the MBR and turn on the closet and overhead light to rouse my wife. Only the closet lights works. She is just waking. I walk over and ask her the question. It's a long question but I get it out easily enough. She thinks about it for a micro-second and responds:

"you should knock off the 3"

I'm confused? "What do you mean by that?? I should knock off the 3?"  But I wake.

****************************************

I pull the card and it's a circle. I have a gut feeling that if I missed I didn't miss by much. I pull the card to the left and it's the square. But a miss is a miss.

: DrTechnical May 08, 2009, 08:09:11 AM
I mentioned to my wife what the advanced task of the month was. I predicted I would see ghosts or souls. She predicted a Kleidascope effect. We were both right and then some ...


May Advanced Task

I am dreaming about walking the dog. It's morning and I figure if I hurry up I can get back home and try to LD again. I realize there is some major construction going on. The storm sewer lines are being replaced and some new thin PVC piping is being laid in it's place. It seems odd they would do this since the job was recently done and with the more standard wide concrete piping. I briefly think I might be dreaming. I wake (maybe a FA).

I stay still and have a series of vibrations culminating in a floating off and returning to my body sensation. I rotate off the couch and head to the kitchen certain I'm dreaming, but I wake again (FA?).

Same thing. I lie perfectly still and experience vibrations. After 10 seconds I float counter clockwise off myself and get sucked back into my body. I get up and head to the kitchen counter. I had left a pair of microwaved sun glasses on the kitchen counter before going back to bed. My goal is to use them to see in the microwave frequency range. Sure enough they are sitting where I left them. I grab them and head to the front door. As is often the case for a first WILD of the evening however, my vision becomes obscured - almost like my eye lids are now closed. I feel my way around and head to the front door. I open it. Even though my vision is obscured, I'm confronted with bright light indicating it must be daytime. I head out and start walking toward the street. I try to see through my eye lids to recover vision. This works quite well. Within seconds the scene forms. My front yard looks exactly as expected.

I then remember the glasses. I put them on. Since the lenses are not very wide, they don't completely cover my eyes. So around the outside perimeter of the lense I still see my yard. But through the microwave prepped lenses I see a totally different scene. It's like looking into outer space, but there are two other distinguishing features. There are streaks of vibrating light. The streaks run horizontal and are oscillating up/down. They fill a good portion of the total view. I also see small ghost like images. These are undefined in shape, but there are many of them and they are slowly spinning around me in a very wide arc. I recognize them as manifestations of life energy which has mapped into this spectrum. This is not to say they are ghosts or spirits, but rather life force which maps to a being in our plane. It looks pretty close to this, but the white specks are slowly spinning around me as if floating through a viscous oil:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/d8e27c54-25d1-4d9d-83c9-84ec7cd72438.png)

I put my hands up up against the glasses and cup them around the lenses so as to block out the visible spectrum view. This only has the effect of blackening out my visual perimeter. After another 10 seconds or so, my brain adjusts to seeing in this frequency range (or the glasses give out to a degree) and I now see my front yard through the glasses again. However, everything is more pastel in color. The purples are brilliant, the yellows are unearthly in tone. I start walking around. I begin to slowly hop around as if walking on the moon. Two bushes catch my eye. They are not there IRL. I cruise over and realize they are obviously alive. One moves his arm and seems to gesture to the other to look over my way. I briefly consider asking a question of one of them but somehow it seems inappropriate. They both have arms and head shapes. One is a purple tone, the other a greenish yellow. They seem to be watching me and interested in what I will do, just like I'm interested in their presence and significance. I choose to leave them be and not upset them:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/9ce31733-9121-420b-a729-0eabb6e1dd91.png)

I continue to cruise the yard doing a slow moon walk. The colors are so unusual - not wrong - but enhanced ... like a bluer than blue sky. It's hard to explain. I see some hills next door which are not there IRL and figure I will investigate. I start making my way over but the dream becomes unstable. I wake.

Trying to do my part on the great lucid weekend  :).


Out of Control Bus (CES Induced)

My wife and I are on a school bus and we are pulling into the lot at the Bally's where we met. The driver is turning too wide and at the last minutecuts the wheel very hard. This over correction seems to break the wheel and sends the bus an uncontrolled 360 degree spin. We finally hit the building but not hard. When the bus stops, the driver is hard at work trying to re-start the bus and assume some control. But then the bus starts rolling backwards toward the street. I realize the roof of the bus is gone and that this is all impossible. Dreaming!

I realize we all need to brace for impact since we can't see the traffic coming from the east yet. Who knows what we will hit? As we roll closer to the street, I realize there are no cars coming but a big steel pole which helps divide the sides of the street. I put my arm around my wife because she seems frightened. She is very rigid and it's hard to get my arm around her. Before hitting the pole, the entire bus takes off from the ground and starts flying horizontally into the air. I enjoy the flight for a few moments before waking.


House Confusion (CES Induced^2)

I am in what appears to be the basement of our old Plainview house though I don't consciously realize it at the time. I am looking at a circuit design that SStride has put together. It's much neater than I imagined it. There is a note about 6 representing something on the old proto, and I notice a neat housing of knobs to control various settings. Then it hits me. I'm NOT in possesion of this circuit. Dreaming!

I head upstairs and expect the garage of the old plainview house (like it was IRL). I open the basement door and enter our Bayville home. This doesn't hit me at first and I instinctively head to the counter to find some zener cards. I pick the left most one. It looks like a long straight line, but then morphs into a shape like an ice cream bar (even with the red outer shell dripped and dried onto a portion of the stick). I note this and move on. It still hasn't fully struck me that I'm not in out present day home. I exit the house and leap in the air for some flying - but where to fly to? I think about flying through the next door neighbors window and finding Mrs A. Maybe kick Mr A's ass if he gets in the way  :o. But I can't get momentum. I leap from the ground againi and try to fly better this time but wake.

NOTE: I didn't bother pulling a RL Zener card because the locations where wrong.


Guru Task 9

I am sitting on my couch looking at the zener cards. There are 7 in total including one which is a picture of a violin. Wait? I have 5 zener cards ... Dreaming!

I don't want to miss my chance to ask my question so I head upstairs and find my wife. On my way up the stairs my daughter somehow finds herself on my shoulders and it becomes difficult to progress. She seems to want to halt my progress. But I persist and seemingly surprise her. I head to the MBR and my wife is reading in bed. I ask her the question and clairify that the letters might not be jumbled, but rather represent something else. She agrees and ponders the question but doesn't have an immediate response. My daughter is getting heavy at this point and I shake her off and she abruptly drops to the ground. I would be worried if this was real since she hit pretty hard. But my dream daughter seems fine.

My wife is out of bed at this point and has on a shirt and panties. She's thinking and facing the bed. I reach over and start yanking her panties down. She grabs my crotch and pushes me away. I guess she's too busy with the letters puzzle? Well if she has the answer she would have coughed it up by now. I give up and head out.

I decide to pass through a wall. I step precariously about the stairwell, place my hands on the east wall adjacent to it and try to open a portal. I do OK and before long I'm in the wall. As is often the case, I feel like a heavy gelatanous blanket of matter is over me, as I try to push it away and progress through this void. There are lots of shimmery lights and odd psychadelic effects going on in here. I think I wake before ever finding my way out - have a FA - but didn't catch it as such.

Yeah Matt Lauer, Time warps. What's so f'in crazy about time warps?

Actually I saw this a few weeks ago. My daughter watches Land of the Lost on DVD and she didn't understand why everyone was different. I did my best to explain.

We're looking forward to it  :)

Bird Seed (CES Induced)

I'm on the couch sleeping when I hear my cell phone from the library. It's faint but definately ringing. I think to myself that people shouldn't be calling me at 5:00 am and I get a little miffed. My mom walks downstairs, grabs the phone and brings it over to me. I notice that she's gotten shorter and fatter. She looks much more like my grandma used to. By the time she hands me the phone, it has stopped ringing.

I get off the couch and decide to flip the phone open to see who it was or perhaps retrieve a message. However what she brings over is not my phone but my NT. Although the NT now has a feature where it can flip open like a cell phone. I tell mom that this is the wrong device.

She starts to become very concerned about her morning schedule and seems to think that my interview is somehow going to complicate things. She keeps talking about 10:00 am and I remind her that the discussion is at 1:00 so it shouldn't impact her at all. She seems to accept this.

I notice that the NT has a panel missing and I can see into it. It looks like it has two hidden internal jacks. They look like the old style mouse ports that where cylindrical. I also notice several pieces of bird seed stuck inside. I flip the NT and gently shake it. A few pieces of seed come out. Then more ... soon it's pouring out quite heavily and I am catching it in my left hand over the garbage. Then it finally hits me. Dreaming!

I excuse myself and head out the front door. The dream feels incredibly real but I get concerned about waking. I open the door and there is snow outside, as if I needed further confirmation. I walk a few steps and jump in the air, flapping a little. Sure enough, I hover and then lift off some. The flight is not great however because I keep thinking about how real the dream feels. I hover over to the house and try to kick off to get momentum but wake before accomplishing that.

: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical May 13, 2009, 09:06:34 AM
9 days since my last G/C and 5 since my last N/H use. My cholinergic system was well rested. G/C last night  - I had about 50 minutes of non stop lucids. probably 9-10 WILDS, DEILDS and FA's. Most were short. A few were more memorable.

Falling ... and Zener Pull

I wake from a brief lucid and lie very still. I suddenly have a falling feeling. It catches me off guard but it's not frightening. I finally slow and turn over. I open my eyes convinced I'm dreaming. I make my way to the kitchen counter. It's a little hard to move as the dream is not stable yet. I grab onto the refrigerator handle to pull myself along and begin to float off the ground.

I somehow regain gravity, pull myself to the counter and try to look around. My vision is also obscured at this point. I feel around pick the right most card. I squint and can see just barely. I have a  strong hunch it's squiggly lines. I pull it and that is what I see, though the lines are white and faded instead of red. I soon wake.

********************

Hours later when I finally checked the RL right most card, it was a cross. Miss.


Unexpected Threesome

I have a FA and recognize it as such. I get up and head to the kitchen. A woman walks in, in a rather non-chalant manner. I recognize her as D (not even sure the last name, friend of a friend of my wife). I take advantage of the situation and lead her upstairs. We hop in bed with my wife and proceed to have a very intense and somewhat freaky threesome. Fully edited here   :angel:


Humming Bird Flying

Another DEILD if I recall. I make my way outside. My vision is a little foggy so I jump in the air. Flying usually helps and it does again this time. I can get to a point in altitude, but always converge to a hover. I somehow realize I can again kick of the air and resume my vertical flight. Everytime I hover, I get to a tree top and admire the view. Everytime I kick off I somehow find a higher tree and again converge to the trees top to enjoy the scene from that vantage point. It's a little like a humming bird flying from flower to flower. It's weird how I can't break the ground scenery of the trees no matter how high I fly. I wake.


Awards Ceremony

I'm at a gathering of some kind where people are slowly entering a large room with tables. I get the sense it's an awards ceremony and there are numerous people from work dating back to my 3Com days. I get up, walk around and hear an announcement about taking seats. There are so many people standing that I take a seat at the nearest table rather than going back to my friends. I look around and don't recognize anyone I'm seated with.

Just then, I realize that Kathy Griffin is seated at my table. Oh ... dreaming. I get up again and lead Kathy away by the hand. We find a private room. I guess I can have her entertain me with jokes? Instead, I drop my pants and gesture her to service me a little. She readily complies   :angel: I soon wake.


Lot's of non-lucids follow including the following:


Hostage Situation

I am in a gym on some fold out bleachers. There are quite a few people there, maybe 20. We are being held hostage by some guy with a machine gun. There's a scene change. We are now in a hallway. I start talking to the guy and try to gain some sympathy - with the real intent of making him drop his guard so I can swat the gun from his hand. I talk about how I always was decent to him in the past, and how I have a daughter to raise, etc ...   I never get my chance.

There's a scene change. It's a scene on a college quad. People are outside sitting on blankets. I walk by the guy who was once holding us hostage though that event is somehow over. I don't fully comprehend the discontinuity here. I see he has three stake knives but they are on the ground. I tackle him and prevent him from grabbing the knives. We struggle. I call for help and hardly get a rise from anyone, let alone actual help. He reaches for his pocket and pulls a black plastic bag. He tells me he has a big surprise. I figure it's poison, or acid or something quite dangerous. I step it up. I wrestle him to the ground. I have him on his back and I'm sitting on his stomach. I start pounding away at his face. 30 seconds later his head is caved in. It's nothing but gooey brain matter. The college security guys FINALLY come. I get up and hold up his dead body for security to see. I don't feel remorsefull as this guy was dangerous.

4:30 am Lawn Mower

I'm sitting in the family room looking at some Zener cards I have drawn with a blue pen. They are just shapes, none of them are colored in. I am confused why I would have made a rectangle because it seems too similar to the square. I can't figure this out. I then hear a lawn mower. I realize it's not even dawn and some ass is mowing their lawn. It then strikes me that this is a fairly common dream sign and I must be dreaming.
 
I look outside and notice about 4-5 kids running past the side of the house and into the back yard. They are not well defined shapes, rather more ghostly looking. I quickly run outside via a sliding glass door which is not there IRL.  I yell for them to come back in a threatening tone. I feel the dream becoming unstable though. I kneel down and touch the ground to get some tactile sensation going to stabilize things. This seems to help. With the kids gone, I figure I'll head to the front and see what's going on there.  However I wake.


Zener Pull + More Bad Flying

I wake and lie perfectly still. I feel vibrations and have a DEILD back into my dreamspace. I get off the couch and head to the kitchen counter. I decide to pull the middle card and at the last moment have a hunch it's a circle. I pull the Star, and it resembles the actual card quite perfectly. I make a mental note and carry on.

My mom walks by. She's wearing a robe which is open, bra and panties. I find this all quite odd and uncomfortable. I feel compelled to head upstairs to verify she's now in bed with Dad so I can go about my business without interference (they don't live in my house BTW). When I get up to my MBR, I see dad in bed with my daughter. They are both sleeping and dad has on pajama bottoms which look my daughters ballerina pants. This is all too weird. I leave the house.

Once I leave the house, the scene is very realistic. In fact, I start questioning whether or not I'm still dreaming, which is silly considering the previous events. I decide to do some flying. I see a tree which resembles the tree we had in our front yard in NY. I leap in the air and flap. I get a hover and a little translation but nothing special. I struggle to do better  and wake. Not sure why my flying is so lame lately  ???

*************************

Hours later, I finally woke and pulled the RL zener card in the middle and it was the squigly lines.

Trying to Get Some Life Guidance

I am walking up the stairwell and realize that the experience is off. It's that "dreaming" feeling and I recognize it as such. I continue up stairs. I'll probably wake the wife for some LD sex. I start pulling my pants and underwear down when I realize she was last in bed with our daughter. I am sure there will be too much continuity between the past RL scene and this dream scene so I forgo waking her. I head back downstairs.

Of course at this point I'm having trouble yanking my pants back up and they are stuck halfway up my back side. I exit the house and finally manage to get fuly redressed. My eye sight is quite fogged over and I decide to try to see through my lids which clears up the problem. I walk to the curb. It's evening and I see a jogger headed this way. I try to intercept him. But as he jogs by he sort of dematerializes and swooshes past me leaving not a trace.

I see our neighbor J. I walk over and tell him I'm looking for a wise person for some life advice. Maybe even a much older version of myself who might have solved this problem already. J does a fair job of listening but doesn't have any practical advice on where to find such a person. I soon wake.

Great idea to get some advise.  Those DC's that don't tell you anything are probably best ignored to give you time to find one who actually can give you the gift of knowledge.  Create it happening.  Being open and willing is the most important part.

Odd Bourbon Bottle

I'm in the kitchen putting the bourbon back on the top shelf. I hear something clanking around inside. I realize the pouring spout has fallen off and landed in the bottle. But it's weirder than that. There is an invisible layer about 2/3 the way up, inside the bottle that prevents the spout from falling to the bottom. This strikes me as very odd, but not impossible per say. I give up and put the bottle away.

Some other events transpire (which I forget). Next I know, I'm at the kitchen table and I'm wearing a condom. It's not put on very well and about one inch of slack is hanging off of me. I'm "entertaining myself" a little, when I realize how strange this scene is. It hits me instantly ... dreaming.

What to do? Under the circumstances, I can't seem to think of anything better to do, than continue doing exactly what I had been doing. I get close to finishing but  wake before that happens.


Confusing Zener Card Sequence

I have a serious of vibrations and wait till they end. I get up and can tell right away that I've transitioned. I excitedly walk over to the kitchen counter and pull the card 2nd to the left. It's a very busy card with lots of small writing. I see a bunch of characters on the bottom "+++++++++++++++++" and decide it must mean the cross. OK. I make my way out to the front and continue to look at the card. I realize there are other valid zener characters as well, which makes this card very confusing.

I exit the front door and decide to find a dream guide for advice. I notice the light is on in the bathroom next door and I can easily see in. No way that B is my dream guide so I continue. When I get to the street it's barren. The dream becomes unstable so I rub my hands together and that helps. Since there is no one here, I choose to fly. I get nice altitude very quickly and before I know it there is nothing but sky all around me. But in seeing a continuous grey sky all around me, I lose the cohesiveness of the dream scene and start to lose my visuals in general. I soon wake (FA).

There is a light on nearby and it's very annoying. I close my eyes and wait for vibrations to kick in. They do and I get up. This time I go to the counter and the card I pulled previously is still flipped over. This time I pull the right most card. Again, there is lots of writing on the card but one very clear and distinguishing character ... a Star, colored in, in black. OK. Off to the street.

I exit and see some large fallen branches adjacent to the crab apple tree. I wonder what has happened here but lose the dream again and wake (another FA).

I go to the counter to confirm the Star. All cards are face down as I expected. I pull the right most card and see two parallel lines? That's not even a valid card? I pull the card second from the left. Two parallel lines. Then the next card to the right. Two parallel llines? Oh ... still dreaming.

I excitedly make my way to the street again, glad that I have yet another attempt to find a guide/guru type. But I  finally wake for real.

************************************

The right most card turned out to be the circle. So this was a miss.

This time I get up

Lucidus Interuptus (no supps, 1st REM cycle)

I'm lying in bed when I feel a wave of vibrations. I wait for them to stop and sit up. I hear an interview going on  over the radio. It sounds like Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath is being interviewed, but I choose not to pay much attention. I look over to the clock and notice that the alarm indicator light is flipping back and forth between red and blue in color. Definately dreaming.

I feel the need to exit this room and turn 180 degrees into the adjacent room. Something is not quite right but I can't place it. I wake (My wife climbs into bed IRL and wakes me. I didn't identify it at the time, but I was in the old Plainview house from childhood).


Quantum Realities

After much difficulty falling asleep, I feel a wave of vibrations. I ride it out and wait for them to end. I get the sense I'm on the living room couch and feel disoriented (probably a result of sleeping on my LHS which is rare for me). When I do sit up I'm actually right were I should be, the den couch. Sasha is up and doing her multiple turn and reposition thing. It all seems very real and it's unusual for her to do this at the beginning of a lucid, but I'm not confused by this and still sure I'm dreaming. I sanity check the clock. It says 5 something. This is very reasonable too, until the 5 flashes to a 4 before my very eyes.

I head over to the counter to pull a zener card. I have the cards layed out in a triangular fashion to distinguish this trial from the others. I pull the middle card without any premonition or influence as to what it might be. It's the circle card, and it looks perfectly real - no odd features.

I head out the door at this point to see where the dream takes me. I make my way to the street and briefly see a figure to the east, but then it disappears. I yell out "does anyone want to discuss the possible connection between quantum physics and dreams? No response. I then offer "How about advice, is there anyone who might have some decent life advice for me? Still nothing. In a last ditch effort to get something going I offer "Does anyone want to fuck? Still nothing. A truck comes this way and nearly side swipes me. I move away at the last moment.

I decide to walk the neighborhood for a bit. Rather than walk though I do my hand stand/spring/flip method and make my way to the next yard north. I'm feeling a little stuck and I somehow throw what appears to be a copy of me, off of myself. This is rather hard to explain ... but suddenly I can move quite freely. I crawl up to the house so as to not be seen. However, B is looking out the window and clearly sees me. I try to play it cool. I crawl up three wood stairs, stand and attempt to ring the door bell. But before I can, the door opens and his wife invites me in. B offers his hand and tells me that he's happy I was able to join them in their home. We shake. I have a seat.

At this point, I'm at the dining room table. His wife is at the table to my left, B is standing more or less next to me at my left, there's a 3rd DC off in the corner behind us and one final woman at the other head of the table oppositie me. She seems the most engaging and thoughful based on the look on her face. She's a little younger than B and his wife, perhaps 60 - very nicely dressed and made up.

I start telling them that there's a question on my miind that relates to dreams. I go into a dissertation about how "in the real world" (I use my hands to highlight this room and every thing in it - as if to convince the DC's that I consider them to be part of my real world) "we have senses which help us form the scene we perceive around us, etc ...." I then talk about how the brain becomes active during REM but we're basically devoid of sensory input. I explain how quantum physics seems to suggest that space and time are non-linear. My dissertation is pretty elegant actually and the DC oppositie me listens with excitement on her face as if she knows where this is going. She then blurts out:

"When I dream, it's like I step through a doorway to somewhere else entirely"

Exactly! I get very excited by her comment and talk about the theory of parallel universes and how every possible outcome of an event can spawn a different quantum reality. I get too excited though and wake at this point.

*******************

I get up and anxiously pull the card and it's the cross (which is what I thought it might be prior to falling asleep, and of course the circle was right next to it)

Final Gamma Trial

I crack my eyes open and realize the den light is on. I don't remember leaving it in that state? Oh ... I must be dreaming. I sit up with some difficulty, a sure sign it's a dream. I take my time, relax and make my way to the counter. I grab the card second to left and note a circle (just a heavy black outline, no red filler). With that task easily done, I decide to go outside and see if I can find a DC, preferably a copy of myself.

I feel my way to the door as it is quite dark. I open it and close the door behind me without locking it (just in case). I start walking around. I call out "J are you there" are few times. Nothing. It's dark and very quiet. No DC's at all. Usually I'm fine without DC's but I consider this all very frustrating ... where are they when you need one? I see one minivan travelling north on school, but they don't see me.

At some point I intuitively sit and use my hands to pull myself along the road. It's like I'm sitting on a sled on top of ice. I can easily pull myself and pick up decent speed. I head toward the house across the way. I'm on a collision course with the garage door which is fine. I figure maybe I'll enter the house and chat with my neighbor. Upon hitting the door though, I get the same effect I get when pushing through a space/time portal ... a stretchy gelatin like effect. When I get to the other side, I have a vague view of a new scene. I'm on my back and I'm looking up into a grey sky. There are 1950's style split level houses surrounding me. The scene is not stable and I try to let it just stabilize. But I wake.

**********************

The actual card 2nd to the left was the cross. Another miss.


Some Fun Tree Climbing.

I find myself walking in my house but something doesn't feel right. Am I dreaming? I head outside for the usual sanity check. I jump in the air and flap. I get some hover but nothing great. But yes, surely dreaming. My goal is to find a copy of myself. Flying was going a little rough, but I notice a tree outside our bedroom window which is not there IRL. I decide to climb it to peer through the bedroom window.

The climbing experience is fun. Mostly using my hands to pull myself up. Some of the branches are very dry and cracking but I don't care since I'm in no danger. I get to a point where a branch leads directly to the bedroom window. IRL, this would be extraordinarily precarious. But I don't care. I slowly walk along it, using a branch above it for a little balance with my hands. However, I wake before getting to the end.


Just Another Feels Like a Dream - Lucid

Like the title says, I am trying to fall asleep but get the sense I might be dreaming. I get up and realize my eyes are stuck shut. I know how to fix this. I head outside and simply try to see through the lids. As soon as I exit, my eye sight resolves itself pretty quick. First I can see through the lids, more or less. Then I can open my eyes properly.

I start to make my way toward the street when I hear a loud Bang! I wake (must have been a RL noise?).

This was an odd enough non-lucid to capture in my DJ. Take it as a weird premonition, or more likely that my subconscious is telling me to ignore parental advice  ???

It was also really weird how each scene change sort of went backwards in time.


Another Nuclear Disaster Related Dream

I am in NYC not far from the south street seaport. People are starting to franticly make there way north to get away from the sea port. It's been divluged that Al Qaeda has set-up a nuclear device somewhere nearby and has threatened to detonate it at any time now. I wonder to myself if they have the technolgy for a full blown controlled nuclear explosion. Maybe it's just a dirty bomb? I wonder how far I need to be in order to not be affected by the latter event?

Scene change ...

I am a diver working for the NYC police department. The city has somehow intercepted info about the possibility of a nuclear device by the sea port. I suit up and enter the water. I have a very poweful flashlight that somehow helps me to see quite far into the murky waters around the city. There is an aircraft carrier docked at the seaport. This whole operation has a very secretive feel to it.

Scene change ...

I'm at a beach and I'm hanging out with some friends. I exchange a bottle of Orangina for a divers mask. It doesn't fit very well and I think to myself there must be a better way to design these things.

Scene change ...

I'm at our Bayville home. The nuclear threat is big news. Mom and Dad are in the bathroom. We are all planning to go into the city to see a movie. I knock on the door and remind them of the possible disaster. They seem very unconcerned. They want to go into the city anyway, even thought the bomb is due to go off at 5:00 pm.

I think about this and it seems pointless to be head strong and ignore the obvious consequences of going into the city. I decide not to go and tell them they may take my brother, but not me.

Another backwards dream, like Burned up had.

I'm reminded of what a DC told me a while back ... "time hasn't been flowing properly for you for quite a while now"  or words to that effect.

Disclaimer:   A tried a new combo last night. Nothing I hadn't tried before individually. But the combined effect was quite strong. Very fantastical ... which for me translates to odd things and adult content. This was a weird dream. I was certainly lucid the whole time, even though it might not sound that way.


A Purse?

I find myself in the bathroom walking toward the door. I realize the last thing I was doing was reviewing lucid goals and I did NOT go to the bathroom. I must be dreaming? I head downstairs for some confirmation. By the time I get to the kitchen to check the clock I can hardly see at all. I realize my eye lids are glued shut and hence I must be dreaming. I feel my way to the front door and exit the house.

I try to see through my eye lids which I've perfected pretty well. I can now see and for some reason feel compelled to crawl around like an animal. I head to the east most trees and bushes and crawl around from a small animals perspective. After a minute of this I get up and head to the street.

I see a woman depart from the #201 house on the street. She's rather plain looking and walking a small dog. I briefly consider visiting B again since the conversation I last had in his house was interesting. But I choose instead to see what the woman is up to. There is a long white rope which seems like super long bed sheet rolled up into a rope. It extends several hundred feet from her house to where I am. I use it to pull myslef over to that direction. I don't really question why this rope is here or how unusual this is.

When I intercept the woman, I try to take her by the hand as if to suggest we need to find a private place to fool around a little. She tells me to leave her alone and that she's not interested. I notice that her beige pants are see through, as are her panties. This is not by chance and I realize she's just playing hard to get. I pull her to the floor and yank down her pants. As I suspected, she really is into it, as she lubes up her fingers with some spit and applies it to an "alternative location"  O_O. I enter her from behind. Before long, there's a lot of grunting and her affirmations of "that feels so good" over and over again.

After a few minutes of intense sex like this, I tell her we should get on the couch and change positions. I don't even realize that we were previously outside and now in some house? We decouple and she gets up. The next thing I know, I look down and have the embarrasing realization that I'm having sex with a purse? This I DO realize as weird and not good. I also realize there are several DC's in the room though no one seems to care about my odd indiscretions. I get up, lose the purse and head to the bathroom to finish my business.

I start thinking to myself that this dream has been going on for a long time. I try to finish up and only get to a point where I'm close. I start thinking too much about the fact that I might wake soon, and what if I make a mess, etc ...  Before long I wake.

Weird dream night. Off the cuff lucid at 2:45 prior to WBTB. G/C at WBTB ... second lucid at ~4:20, third much later around 7:30.


I Simply Have No Explaination For This Dream  ???

I'm at what appears to be Mos Eisley's space port from Star Wars. Some storm troopers come running up to the Millenium Falcon and I run onto the ship. We quickly close the hatch and blast our way out much like in the movie. Next I know, I am holding onto a donut shaped space ship about 4 feet in diameter. I hitch a ride with the ship, leave the space port and fly into space.

We are chased by several slow ships. We try to escape but it's hard to evade their fire. We fly back into the atmosphere of the planet and toward a wooded area. I get the sene we are being followed by Darth Vader. Apparently, I believe I am Ben Kenobi and that Vader can sense me. This puts us all into grave danger. I hop off the ship and fly through the air and past some trees to a clearing.

I am now flying over a mansion and a really nice pool. It's evening and there are a few people lounging in the pool. I say to myself "this is the type of scene I would expect in a dream" at which point it finally hits me. Dreaming. I enter the pool as well. Next I realize, I am totally naked in the pool even though everyone else has a suite on. I feel very self conscious about this,  lose lucidity and try to time an escape from the pool. I don't get a chance. But I do find a pair of pants and quickly try to get them on before anyone notices. However, they have a pair of tight bicycle shorts in them as well and I struggle to get the pants on. This causes a bit of a scene and it garners unwanted attention. I wake.


Zener Card + A Surprise

I feel a series of vibrations but don't believe I've transitioned. I look a the clock and it shows 4:17 which is reasonable. Another more powerful series of vibrations follow and I believe I have transitioned. I get up trying to force the clock to show 5 something. Instead, it shows 1 something and it's flashing on/off. I slowy get up and make my way toward the kitchen.

I think to myself how real my little lucid dream quantum reality feels. The space between the chairs is tight and I get my feet trapped. I gently fall to the ground and untrap my feet. I get back up. I head to the counter and decide to pull the right most of three cards. Interestingly, the 2 discarded cards and their too but not lined up with the 3 experiment cards. I pull the card:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/a5e63b0a-d10a-48fc-b4d6-82f73ab167b2.png)

It's a slightly titled and very small square in the corner of the card.

I make my way toward the straircase to see if I hear anything interesting. I hear my wife in the bathroom and decide to investigate. She's finishing up and stands with her pants still at her ankle. I quickly drop and remove my pants and she gets the point. I get behind her and start grinding against her a little. She's very warm back there  :?. I'm just taking my time, trying to get aroused. Next I know, she turns around, and pushes me to the floor sort of gesturing that I should sit. Oh ... she wants to get on top? Instead, she straddles my face (hard to mis- interpret that request). OK ... I start working her orally.This goes on for a few minutes. She is very worked up and totally into more, more than would be expected IRL. Finally, she's had enough and gets on top of me. We go at it that way for a bit. But it's very intense, almost frantic at times. I then look up and notice that the scene has changed. It's a different bathroom with a window to the left and a second vanity where I would expect the tub to be. I then realize I'm no longer with my wife. Whoever it is, she's a little more full figured but her head is next to mine so I can't figure out who it is. I just go with it for a while longer and finally  wake.

**************************

When I approach the cards, I get the strong sense that the small square is more indicative of the small square component off any of the corners of the cross. I believe the dream message was cross. I pull the card and that's what it is. I also have the sense that the next two cards are star and square and that is correct as well.



Bad Interview

I have a non physical third person view of a scene. In the scene, I'm sitting at a conference table with Candy Finnegan from A&E's Intervention. She is interviewing me for a position. I hear her mumble to herself "what do I do with this guy" as if to suggest I may be over qualified for the position. She starts talking to me. Rather than discuss details of my experience she nit picks about my resume format. She mentions that they also have me on file as "Antonio". She further mentions that the background picture on the resume is a poor choice (rather than a solid white or beige, it appears to be a forest scene picture). I (the dream me I am viewing) get pissed and excuse myself to use the rest room.

There's a scene change. I am with my daughter and watching a scene where the dream me is now sitting in a large sudan. I realize I'm watching myself and hence dreaming. The dream me is now wearing a white T-shirt and is really pissed about the way the interview went and I'm having a moment, though I can't quite make out what I'm saying. My daughter tells me she sees me (the other me) when I was really young. In fact, the dream me looks exactly like I do NOW (I have a new facial hair config going on). I then explain to her that that's uncle T sitting in the car with me. I then notice my cousin J and explain that to her as well. I don't bother exlaining to her that both of those people died as a direct result of life style issues. I wake.

I heard a rumor once that you own a NeuroTrek. Any validity to that theory?

These weren't even CES induced by the way. Just plain old G - tride and true.

Scot Stride and I have focused a significant amount of time and energy on this project thus far. He and I are focusing or planning to focus on synergistic deliverables. But everything takes time. Especially when it comes to valid scientific research.

But I assure you it's a work in progress.

No supps or anything last night, just an unplanned 1.5 hr WBTB (just a little sleepless).


Stuck on a Highway

I'm along a stretch of highway which reminds me of the Long Island Expressway east bound just after the Koskiosko bridge (sp?). The highway is elevated but the pitch appears greater than it is IRL. I stop and get out of my car. There are a line of cars behind me but no one is passing me. I try to walk in front of the car but get stuck. I try to move but have a great deal of trouble doing so. Oh ... dreaming. I look around and there are a few cars and people along the highway to my front view but everything behind me has vanished.

For reasons unknown, I feel compelled to slide down the highway going backwards. The pitch is maybe 35-45 degrees - it just seems like the natural thing to do. I just sort of sit on the air and use my arms to backstroke through the air and begin a slow slide backwards down the HW. I call out to some DC's to "check this out". They only seem mildly interested. After sliding for 30 seconds or so I wake.

RCing for Basic Task + Uncooperative Shower Door

I am lying on the couch and sense I might be dreaming. I sit up and look at the VCR clock which is hard to make out. I get up and do a more formal RC and realize it's just a fogged out blur. Definately dreaming.

I get up and make my way to kitchen counter. I pull the left most card and it's a Star (I still am having trouble blanking my mind, star was the first on my mental list and it appears I influenced things again). I next make my way to the shower to try to pass through the glass/mirrored shower door and hopefully shift time. My intent is to pass through the door as if to "enter the shower" and imagine exiting the shower on the way through and re-entering the house at a time shifted location.

I place my hands on the glass and try to soften it. The problem, which I did NOT anticipate is that by pushing on the glass, the door is giving too much and feels like it's going to pop off it's track. I'm still 99% sure I'm dreaming, but still - the notion of accidently destroying my shower door concerns me. I give up and head to one of the LR windows. Same deal though. It gives way like it's being pushed past the frame which is a very disturbing feeling, and not in line with the nature of the challenge.

I ponder what to do here, but  soon wake.

****************************************

The actual card left out in that position was the square.


Dad's Camaro

I look toward the west and see our detached garage (even though it's east bound IRL). The side door is open and my car is not there. However, there's another car in place of K's car. I concentrate on this for a moment and realize it's Dad's bright red convertible 1989 Camaro. What the hell is that car doing there? Oh ... dreaming. But the realization is short lived. I wake.


Inadverent Time Shift

Again, I am on the couch and the sun is coming up. I get the sense I may be dreaming. The clock is reasonable so I decide to head outside. I first notice a project next door where they are installing a paver based patio. That's an odd thing to do as the landlord doesn't seem to care much about the place? I head to the garage door as sort of a continuation of the previous dream ... perhaps I'll use it as a portal. But instead I decide to open it to see if the Camaro is still there. Instead, I notice that little sparks fly between the portion of the lock on the door frame and the bolt mechanism on the door. I close the door and the same thing happens - more sparks. I am amused and perplexed by this. I somehow don't catch this as an obvious dream sign. I give up on trying to understand what is happening here.

Instead, I head to the back yard and decide to fly as a RC. I start running which is a pleasant feeling - and leap in the air and start to flap. Sure enough, I get a slight hover, followed by some decent altitude. Next I know, a huge gust of wind comes along and I get blown around the yard, back and forth like I'm on a roller coaster.

I eventually get plopped down on top of the shed, near a well known dream space/portal. When I look down again, I'm no longer in my yard or even on the shed, I'm on top of a tall house. I think about jumping to the ground but I'm somewhat freaked out by the height. Instead, another gust of wind grabs me and gently places me on the ground. I had such a cool ride and I have a big smile on my face. For some reason I wonder if the sleeping/physical me is smiling too, as unlikely as that should be.

I notice that I'm in a quiet town, by a bunch of small businesses. I consider finding a glass window to pass through as that task is still on my mind - maybe do a little time shifting in the process? The dream starts to feel a little unstable so I rub my hands and concentrate on that feeling to re-stabilize it. I then see a bar/restuarant. I head that way to investigate. The bar is quite busy and I figure maybe I can find a gal. I see one really attractive DC but she's too hard to get to. I find another, but upon checking out the back view, decide to take a pass. I then notice a girl who reminds me of someone ... can't place it. I realize she's checking me out. I take a pass anyway. I start to leave the bar when I notice that it has a small gift shop where they seem to sell nothing but JB Whisky. I take a pass on the JB as well. I'm leaving the establishment when I see my old friend Z. Again, there are many people between him and I, and I can't get to him. But I do notice that he looks exactly the same as last I saw him which was about 20 years ago. The only change is a small chin beard to go with the mustache.

When I eventually leave the building I decide to get back home. I figure if I fly back into the direction from which I came, I can probably re-pass through the space/time portal. I leap in the air and start flying in that direction. I start to lose altitude and I reach for a tree branch. I pull myself along the branch in a desperate attempt to continue on, but wake.

Upon waking, the obvious hit me. This WAS my time shift task. Duh. Z hadn't aged a day in 20 years. Lucky him  :P

New Sex Position  :o

I have a prolonged series of vibrations and wait them out. When I get up I feel slightly disoriented and I'm sure I'm dreaming. I head to the kitchen counter to pull a Zener card. I first notice that that is a whole bunch of other junk that I did not previously lay out. Lot's of cards, coins and dice. I specifically notice one die which shows "1". I try to pull the right most Zener card and feel a force pulling me backwards. I resist it and quickly grab the card. It's basically blank, but has a small "2" in one corner and another small character in another corner which I can't quite make out. I put the card back and continue.

I head to the stairwell figuring I can get a little something upstairs, perhaps. The arched doorway to the stairs is blocked however and only a small space exists to pass through. I try to push my way through but it is too small. I notice that the blockage is a door like structure that seems to be pertruding from the side of the arched doorway, as if it slides in and out of the wall. I simply pull the blockage to the right and insert it back into the wall - problem solved.

I head upstairs and hear some moaning. This could mean anything  ???. I enter the bedroom and it seems it's just my wife taking care of herself. I hop in bed. She's on her side. Rather than enter her from behind as if to do some spooning, I somehow get the idea of pulling her more toward her back, entering her and then pulling her up on me so I'm on my back. So the end result is me on my back, with her laying sideways on me, with me holding her upper leg way in the air  :?. I genuinely have no idea where I came up with that or why I chose it ... but not bad  :angel:. After a minute or two of this  I wake.


Mystery DC

I am trying to get back to sleep when I get some strong HI. In the pre-dream scene, I'm in the kitchen and see a woman I recognize. I can't quite place the face but she's familiar. Before long, I find myself on the floor with her and we are kissing very passionately. By this time, the dream is fully formed and I'm embedded in it. After about a minute of kissing, she disappears. I notice I'm holding 5 zener cards in my hand. I drop them and head upstairs to see if I can find this mystery DC again.

I enter the bedroom, but only my wife is there. She's wearing only panties and is stomach down on the bed. I take this as a sign she might be a little interested. But in trying to interact with her, she is very lifeless. I'm a little confused by this and soon wake.


College

I'm outside having a conversation w/ J from the gym. He's asking me some stuff about my old job and boss. I pick up a handful of blue snow and make a small snowball. Blue snow in June ... dreaming! I get up and walk around some. The scene reminds me of our old college quad. It's dark but I can make out the main academic building. I walk for a while and see a line of trees. They lead to another large field and building. I get on my hands and knees and seruptitiously crawl under the trees to get a view of the next scene. Secrecy and stealth seems to be very important for some reason. I spot a building that looks like the old library, but it has a red roof. I find that curious. I wake.

***********************

When I finally wake after this dream sequence, I get up and head to the counter. I figure the "2" + the additional character is an indicator of "3". The cards had 3, 4 or 5 elements to them (3 wavy lines, cross "+", 5 pointed star). I then remember the die which caught my attention and showed "1". I take this to mean +1 and figure the card which mapped to "4" is the best choice. I grab the card and it's the cross as expected.

I missed last night on 978 mg EGCG and 200 uG Hup-A. I guess there really is something to that theory about needing Nicotine w/ Hup-A.

One interesting PSI dream though. I had put out three card (squigly lines, cross and star). Randomized them and figured I would pick the left most one.

No lucids. However, on reflecting on my dreams in the morning, I tried to surmise if there were any dream elements which matched any of those shapes. I could only think of one case. In that dream, there was a tall thin tree which snaked up past the power lines and continued to run higher and higher in a squigly pattern.

When I woke, I pulled the left most card, and sure enough - it was the squigly lines card.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical June 15, 2009, 10:36:54 AM
Long time since G/C (about a week). Lot's of lucid dreaming but I'm sure I lost some of it as well ...


Zener Cards and Trying To Get w/ the Neighbor

I get the distinct feeling that I'm dreaming, even though it feels like I haven't fallen asleep yet. I stand and I have a floating feeling - which confirms my suspicions. I go over to the cards and like the last time have a feeling of being pulled back into the TV room. I grab the stove, and pull myself toward the cards and try to relax in order for this annoying pulling thing to stop. I pull the middle card and it's hard to make out. Kind of a circle with a lightly filled in middle and small filled in circle in the middle. I figure this is closest to the cross among the 3 cards on the counter (it's certainly not squigly lines or star).

I head outside and jump in the air. I quickly gain altitude and do a little flying, though I have a hard time getting much higher than tree height. I decide to land by the neighbors house - one of the ones I fooled around with a few lucids ago. I walk to the sliding glass door and see her watching TV on the couch. She has a blue blanket over her body and doesn't seem to notice me. However, when I try to open the door I realize my legs are not really working and I can't even get to the door. It's like they are very weak and unable to get me close enough to slide the door open. I wake.



Cards and Neighbor, Second Try

I believe I have woken and head to the counter to pull the middle card to confirm its identity. I comes up blank on both sides. So does the left card and they are both larger than the right most card.  ??? - oh ... still dreaming.

I head out for a little more flying and as before decide to finally land at my neighbors house. This time I can enter without issue, but I find her rather lifeless on the couch. She is conscious and aware but somewhat zombie like. I try to make the best of it. I drop my pants and prop her up a little to see if I can get her interested. No dice. Then I realize her face is all distorted. I wake.


Shower Sex

I'm at some random gym and notice T who routinely works out at my gym. At about this time I realize I'm dreaming. There are a few hispanic guys who seem to be staff workers and they are talking about smoking some pot after work. I inquire if I can join, but they indicate it's not for a few hours. I don't push the issue.

I have a FA. I get up and go to the counter and again pull the middle card and see only blank faces. I realize I'm still dreaming and also realize there is sound coming from the upstairs shower. Hmmm, maybe it's T, that would be cool  ;). I hear the shower running and enter the bathroom, expecting to see T sitting on the toilet. There is no one on the toilet but the shower curtain is drawn. Maybe T is in the shower? I pull the curtain, but it's my wife instead (I think). She has her face very close to the shower spout. I hop in and enter her from behind. Things get very intense. I never do get a look at her face (I think it was my wife  :angel:). I wake.



********************

When I finally go the the RL counter and cards, the middle card is in fact squigly lines, so this was a clear miss. With that said though, the cross was the right most card which was the only card not distorted ini the second dream. Don't know. It's hard to put these miscellaneous pieces of info together on a reliable basis.

More success with the EGCG/Nicotine combo.


Big Cat Attack

I wake from a non-lucid and lie perfectly still, focusing my mental energy at my third eye. Before long, I have a series of vibrations. When they end I get up. I'm not certain whether I'm dreaming or awake? Everything is unusually real feeling.

I pass the edge of the couch and get stuck between the couch and lamp - a new common occurance in my lucids. Dreaming! I pick up the lamp and move it out of my way. I head to the counter to grab a Zener card. As before, there are the three face down cards I left out, and a bunch of other miscellaneous crap (beads, small toys, etc ...). I grab the right most card and see 1 squigly line. I move on. I stop at the stairwell to listen for any activity upstairs (maybe L is in bed messing around with my wife?). But nothing. Instead I head outside. Upon closing the doors I realize that the storm door had been dislodged from its top hinge and the storm window is loose. I remove it and put it gently aside. I then look to the street and see a large cat headed this way. It's about the size of a house cat but looks more like a bobcat. I fly over to the edge of the property.

By the time I land, the small bobcat has turned into a full grown tiger and it attacks me. It bites my arm and pulls me to the ground. I make a split second decision to relent and give up, rather than fight. The tiger is satisfied with this and moves on. My arm stings a little but no major wound or blood. I then see a really attractive woman at the corner. She has long blond straight hair. She head south on school. I try to catch up to her but she is walking too quick. I wake before catching her.


Some Mediocre Flying

Same as before. A non-lucid into a DEILD. I get up and step into A's silver wire basket and get my right foot caught in it. I try my best to detach it but can't seem to get a wire ring off of my ankle. I give up and move on.

The lights are on in the LR and K's office and some music is playing. I figure she must be around somewhere and maybe we can fool around a little. Or perhaps I can try the "invading your wifes dream" task. Regardless, I look around and she is no where to be found. I give up and head out. I jump in the air and flap. I get about as high as the trees but no higher. In fact, I'm struggling to have reasonable control of my flight. I see a huge tree and branch that looks like a good perching spot. I fly toward it as if I'm swimming through the air. But wake before reaching it.

***************************************

When I head to the RL counter, I am certain I will find the squigly lines card. I pull the right most card and that is in fact what I get.

Cool on nailing the card!

That "swimming through the air" thing seems like such a ubiquitous experience.  Those common themes always make me go "hmmmmm."

When I know I'm dreaming, flying or anything else should be effortless.  Sometimes it is - but often it isn't.

I was screaming and kicking, and suddenly I realized I wasn't getting hurt, or that I was dying.

So I became lucid. I snapped my fingers, and broke both their necks instantly. And shoved them off me.

Zener Pull + Portal

I have a prolonged series of vibrations. When I get up, I notice the numbers on the VCR are jumbled about. Dreaming! I walk over to the counter and flip on the light which some how was turned off. I arbitrarily pull the middle card and see two sets of squigly lines. They are offset by about 60-70 degrees relative to one another. My immediate reaction is the obvious - squigly lines.

I make my way to the wall and move the speaker out of the way. I kneel, place my hands on the wall and push through. I am trying to get to our old NY house. Instead, I found myself in a room reminiscent of our upstairs bathroom. I am hovering in mid air and I'm upside down (looking up). I leave this room and fly through a large house of unknown origin. After about 1 minute of flying  I wake.


Into Orbit

I get the sense I'm still awake and sit-up to do a time check. I realize the clock is washed out and that is an obvious DS. I get up and leave the house through the front door. I try to leap in the air but can't get any momentum. I feel very weak and tired. I continue To jog along the street doing a kind of hopping moon walk thing. I am waiting to get a good angle to push with. I get into a good crouch and ith all my force push up with my legs and flap. I quickly gain fantastic altitude. Before long I have left behind any discernable view of the ground and I realize I'm in space. I look around but get over excited and  wake.

**************************

At around this time I get up the check the RL middle card. I realize squigly lines is too obvious. I have seen something like this before. The angle is similar to the angle between the points of a star. I figure star is the less obvious but better choice. That's what it is!

Who's Sleeping in My Bed?

I wake and realize I'm in an unknown bed with someone next to me. I'm not sure who it is or where I am. I realize I'm still dreaming. I get up and walk around. The person has short hair and it's not immediately obvious who this is? I take a closer look and sure enough, it's a woman and she's quite cute.

I start playing with her right breast and nipple to wake her. She does and she sits up. We start kissing passionately. I pull back and offer a suave "uh, maybe you can suck my cock a little". She responds back with the even more direct "maybe you can eat my pussy then fuck me". Uh ... OK  :angel:. We have some really good LD sex.


Pee Everywhere

I am at the refrigerator and I'm placing a plate of food back into it. I then realize I had been pissing myself and somoe got in the plate which is now in the fridge. Next I know, there is pee everywhere ... on the floor, on the fridge shelf, more falling behind the shelf to the back wall, etc ...  How could I have let this happen? I then realize I'm dreaming. I'm relieved and  wake.


Weird S&M Dream

On a bit of a dry spell. I actually lost most of this dream. G/C night. Kinda low level.

Sarcastic DC

I'm in the back yard standing in a giant pile of leaves. I notice what appears to be two creatures under the leaves. I can't see them but I can see the leaves on top of the pile move as they burrow. I figure they are very large ground hogs. I then hear them speaking english, but forget the actual dialog. I brush away the leaves to get a better view but every time I do that more leaves rush in from the sides to take their place. I panic a little because I don't know what is under them any more. I then realize I'm dreaming.

For some reason, I decide to stand on my hands. I start walking around the yard in this way. I flip back up onto my legs. I then try to conjure my NY beach by literally changing the dream scene. This almost works as the scene begins to form around me. But then it falls apart and turns into a different scene. I'm now in an office of a sky scraper. Again, for reasons unknown, I flip onto my hands, hand walk to the wall and start to pass through it. I am momentarily suspended in mid air a few dozen stories above ground level. I can't seem to fully escape the wall though and walk back in. I return to my legs.

I leap in the air and start flying through different cooridors of the office. I see a cute girl and fly over. But by the time I get to her desk I realize she ain't so great looking and I say out loud "nah, I don't want to fuck you". She looks up and replies in her most possible sarcastic tone "oh no, I'm soooo disappointed".

I continue flying around, kicking my legs like I had on swimming fins on my feet. I approach the front desk. to the left is a cafeteria. I start to hear Black Sabbath's Iron Man. I vear toward the cafeteria and  ...

Low level lucid, no supps.


Hey, I'm Woman!

I am looking in a mirror and I'm totally naked. at roughly this time I realize I'm a woman and I'm dreaming. I do the obvious, I start playing with myself  ;). I do this for about a minute in front of the mirror. It feels good and it's on odd sort of turn on to watch myself.

I then walk over to a nightstand expecting to find some tools. I find a small "pocket rocket" type vibrator and a larger ball/wand/AC type vibrator. The latter of the two kind a scares me a bit. I take the smaller one and experiment a little more. It feels really good, and for lack of a better description, kind of electric and tingly.

That's all I remember.

Bizarre Lucid of the Month

I am in a huge tunnel with some other guy. We are both floating in it like we're in space, or perhaps floating in a thick gelatenous material. In an instant, the scene and everthing in it (except me) get sucked out of one side of the tunnel, and with an instantaneous swoosh, a new scene gets pushed into it.

In this new scene, there are small space ships floating and seemingly without power, and a number of people. The guy who is once again now next to me looks over and says "you realize those people died a long time ago, right?". I start to make my way toward one side of the tunnel and ultimately find a room. I join a woman at a conference table. There are several other people there are they are questioning the woman and I. They want to know if we are sure we want to become the leaders of the city. At this point I wake (FA).

I wake on a couch and think to myself that the level of daylight is correct. It doesn't really dawn on me that the scene is incorrect. The scene appears to be a melding of two apartments I used to live in, with some additional features. I suspect I might be dreaming and decide I should pull a zener card just in case. I walk over to the console in front of the kitchen to retrieve my zener cards. I pull the one to the left and it looks like two rectangles overlapping, but offset by about 5 - 10 degrees (instead of the 90 degrees which would form a valid symbol of the cross). I notice that the symbols are reflecting a lot of light like they might be a hologram so I vary the position back and forth to see if the symbol changes. Sure enough, it forms a cross if I move it to a certain angle. I am satisfied the symbol is a cross.

Next I know, the apartment comes under attack. There are huge explosions to the far side. They sound like a combination of bombs and fireworks. Additionally, large shells start to penetrate the walls and ceiling. They don't explode, but they do punch holes everywhere. By now, I know I'm dreaming, so I simply take a little cover (instinctively) and enjoy the show. Scene change.

I am now outside. It's early morning and no one else is around. I walk over to a structure about my height (maybe a van or a mobile concession stand of some kind. I ponder what to do next  ... but wake for real.


********************

An hour and a half later, I get up and pull  the left most zener card quite convinced that it will be a cross, and that is what I get (though this particular experiment is not exactly in the usual framework, as the dream did not include my RL kitchen counter)

Hi Dr,

You seem to be correct on the cards you pull alot now! Well done, most impressive!

SD???
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical June 30, 2009, 12:07:13 PM
The trick with the cards is to let the dream dictate the result. If I pull a card in my dreamspace with a predisposed hunch what it will be ... that's what I get (and it may be wrong of course). I'm actually 5 hits in my last 7 runs. 3 cards should produce a random hit rate of 33%.

I can PM you on what SD is.

6 nights between G/C uses. Bad night, mostly just insomnia  :mad:


Flying w/ A

I'm on the couch trying to sleep (I must have been dreaming it). My daughter A comes down. I barely here her. I decide to pretend I'm sleeping so she will leave me be. She comes over to check me out. I am on the cusp of WILDing havinig some mild vibrations and loss of awareness. When it stops, I'm fairly sure I'm dreaming and A is still there. I get up and ask her if she wants to go flying. She seems interested. I walk away from the couch and she grabs my feet and somehow has the stength to pull me down. I try to break free but can't.  I undo her grip from omy ankles and again encourage her to follow. She does. When we get to the front door I repeat that we're going to fly like in Peter Pan.

We exit and I look for a good jumping spot. I try to show her what to do with an exagerated deep knee bend and jump in the air. I immediately shoot up about 50 feet and do a hover in mid air. I yell for her to try the same thing but she seems hesitant. She does yell something up to me like "daddy, you're so high up". I wake (FA) - followed by a similar sequence with my wife coming down and my trying to ignore her this time.


Weird Tree Climbing

I wake, but when I sit up I feel disoriented. I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming, in part because I can't get a good focus on anything. I head outside. Upon exitting, there is a large flat bed tow truck with a brang new black Mustang on the bed. The car is reving it's engine. I jump in the air and try to fly. The flight is mediocre and I barely make it to the front Austrian pine.

I grab the tree and pause. I then start climbing a vine to get to the top figuring that might be cool. I make my way about 10 feet before the vine starts to give and I grab a branch instead. I start climbing some more. But then the remaining portion of the main vertical branch starts to rotate horizontally as I grab more branches kind of like it's on a swivel relative to the lower portion. I figure it might be best to simply jump froom the tree at this point and try to fly again. I do, but wake.

Unplanned 4 hour WBTB (damn insomnia). But it did buy me a lucid.


More Random DC Sex

I am in a mall and I'm kicking a large frisbee around. I kick it, walk up to it again and repeat several times. I notice Al Sharpton giving what appears to be an impromtu speech. He is talking about how african americans are still repressed and how Obama is going to make sure that wealth becomes more evenly distributed by a number of programs being designed. I pass Al and move on.

I continue kicking the frisbee when I again come up to Sharpton, a second time. Ah ... glitch in the matrix ... I'm dreaming!

I start walking around and the only thing which comes to mind is to find a hot DC. I don't have to wait long. She's walking past me and I grab her hand to walk her to a private area. She resists. I explain to her that this is a dream and we can do whatever we want. She is still hesitent. I then suggest we find some privacy but I say it with a lot more conviction, like I know she's going to say yes. This of course works perfectly.

We enter what appears to be a bank. I walk her around for about a minute or so before finding a small conference room. We enter and start going at it. I get rather caught up in the whole thing and don't realize there's soon a scene change. Next I know, she's riding me faced the opposite way and we're on top of a 3 story building with her facing a crowd of onlookers.

C from the gym walks up to the edge of the building. Apparently he doesn't want to say "the cops are coming" as that is too blatant a tip off but does yell up that "they will be here any minute". We decouple and I start running away, having somewhat lost lucidity at this point. I wake.

: DrTechnical July 07, 2009, 08:31:07 AM
4 days between G/C uses. Pretty good response. Lot's of vibrations with missed transitions before eventually getting there. 3 mg Melatonin at bedtime.


Flying Over A Future Cityscape

I have yet another series of vibrations. This one is mild but I get the sense I've transitioned. I get up and it feels like I'm moving through a very thick atmosphere. When I look into the kitchen and see the night-lite disabled, I have additional confirmation that I'm dreaming. I head over to the Zener cards and put the night-lite and main light on. The latter doesn't work at all. The night-lite is more florescent than IRL and does a poor job of providing light. I can just barely make out two cards - the third one appears to be missing. I flip the left one and the picture is not stable. It looks like a square, but one or two sides of the square randomly appear and disappear in no apparent order. I note the square shape and move on.

I leave the house. Feeling a little adventurous, I decide to try something different. I yell out "OK aliens, I know your here somewhere, show yourselves". I repeat that basic message a few times, continuously turning in cirlces so they don't sneak up on me. But nothing. I give up and decide to do some flying. I leap in the air and get a pretty nice flight going. At first, I am on my back and the scene is a little washed out. But the details recover and the scene is soon crystal clear. By the time I flip back onto my stomach, the scene below me has changed. I am flying over a beautifully architected city. More toward the east is the older portion of the city which looks like a modern day NY or Chicago, given the style off the buildings. More toward the west is a scene which looks more like a future city one might see in a Sci Fi movie. The buildings are made of what appears to be stainless steel. The details and overall architecture of the buildings are amazing. Even more to the west, I realize that the city boarders an ocean. There's a strip of beach and the waves are coming in quite rough. From this altitude, the beach goers are only small specks. I turn and decide to head toward the water. I'm so happy that I've been treated to such a clear and interesting scene. I figure I will head toward the water and nose dive into it. I pull that off quite easily and go head first into the water. I feel the water engulf me. I wake (FA).

I need to pee so I figure I'll get up. I note the time as 4:50 something which seems reasonable. I make my way to the bathroom and realize that the walls have been altered and the bathroom is not accessible anymore. Furthermore, there is old fashioned wall paper over the walls. Dreaming. I again head to the counter to pull one of three Zener cards (since the last attempt only showed two). When I get there, the kitchen floor also has a bad old fashioned flower pattern to it as does the counter top and Zener cards themselves. I flip the right most one and see:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/81eafe0e-3dd9-4b18-b69e-64e9940e49a8.png)

I figure this is more like the star (if you put them together) than the squigly lines, though it's a judgment call. I continue.

I head outside and walk around some. Again, the atmoshpere is thick and I am having a little trouble getting around. Eventually I leap in the air to do a little flying. Once about 100 feet up, I hear some people below. I realize they are in a van right beneath me. I yell down "hey, do you guys see me up here?". They look around but don't. I decend and decide to land on their roof and bounce off it to further freak them out some. They get out. They are both big, heavy set gang member types and they don't look pleased. I play it cool and say "hey, do you guys want me to teach you how to hover in mid air like this?". They don't seem interested in my trick, but don't seem mad anymore either. We have a seat on the curb, and one of the guys starts talking about his dog. I wake (FA).

There are a number of books in my dogs way on the couch so I move them over. I hear someone come down but I don't recognize the sound of their motion. It turns out it's my brother. He says "oh, you're sleeping down here? I wanted the couch". We start wrestling over it. I wake for real.

**********************

When I pull the right most card, it is in fact the star. But even more interesting, I basically had the sequence correct. The left card was the square based one (cross), the right was star and the middle was squigly lines, which influenced the dream message in the second pull but to a lesser degree than the real card. Here's the real life sequence:

Rowdy Teenagers

I have several near WILD transitions. Eventually I start entering a dream where I am crawling into a hole in the pillows of the couch. It hits me that this is impossible and I must be dreaming. I sit up and realize the dream is not quite stable yet. I relax and get better physical control. I float over to the kitchen counter to pull a Zener card. I goof this up though as I anticipate the squigly lines card before pulling the right most card. The remaining cards R to L are cross and star. I move on and head outside.

When I get outside it's totally pitch black. I can see very little. I hop into the air and flap and start to get some decent altitude. As usual, the higher I get, the clearer the scene becomes and I enjoy a nice view of the neighborhood from about 100 ft in the air. Before long however, I somehow turn around to see the ground converge on me and I'm once again at ground level. I don't recognize the scene and figure I will explore a little. I approach a house that has two huge bushes in front of it (each is about 15 feet wide). I hear what sounds like 2-3 drunk teenagers approaching from the far end of the street. Something comes over me and I get the urge to just start some trouble with them. Maybe it's because they are disturbing the otherwise peaceful silence. I hide behind one of the bushes so as to sneak up on them.

When they get a little closer however, I realize it's a small gang of drunk teenagers, maybe 10-12 kids. I start to question whether I can handle a dozen rowdy teenagers, even if this is just a dream. I get a little concerned, and in my undecided state the dream looses cohesion  ... I wake.

********************************

I feel like this run was somewhat botched, but it's worthy to note that the sequence I saw was completely wrong relative to the RL cards.


Lucid Fragment

I'm in the kitchen and realize there is nothing to eat. My parents are visiting so I decide to do some cooking. I note the outdoor temperature as 72 degrees, pleasant. I go to the fridge and grab a steak and head outside. Dad is smoking (which he gave up years ago) and when I get to the porch I realize it's very cold, perhaps 30 or so. Dad's smoking and the temperature immediately make me realize I'm dreaming  ... but I wake just as fast.

: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical July 16, 2009, 03:21:48 PM
Hey LB.

Yeah, I get the whole omnipotent thing. My more fantasy type lucids usually give me improved powers. My more realistic lucids (which this one was) make me question what I really can or can't pull off.

Why so much lucid sex? Uh ... you're a bit younger, right? Let's just say that when you're middle aged and you've been with the same person for over a decade and she really isn't interested any more, you need to get creative. LDing is my creative outlet for that problem. It's that, or cheat. I don't consider cheating a practical or appropriate option. Of course I've heard people say that lucid sex is cheating. I don't agree.

6 nights between G/C uses + 3mg melatonin at bedtime. The first 4 lucids were completely contiguous and lasted about 30 minutes.


Zener Pull + Some Flying

I have a weird "drifting off" and falling feeling. I am totally aware, but suspect I'm already dreaming. I try to sit up and sure enough my ability to move around is compromised. I liken it to having drank about a bottle of booze. I fall on the floor and try to get up with no success. I wait it out for a moment and try again. I somehow manage to pull myself to the counter and pull a card. My sight is screwed up too and I have to widen my eyes to make out the card. It's a cross, slightly distorted and shoved into one far corner of the card.

I feel a little more capable at this point and head outside. I leap in the air to do a little flying. Perhaps go to Chicago and fly to the top of the Sears tower? I practice pulling myself to a location at a distance and imagine a thrust coming from my feet. Both of those visualizations help. But I lose the dream a little early. I wake.


Trying to Get 2 Girls to Get It On

I lie still and soon get a wave of vibrations. I let it stop and sure enough, when I sit up the VCR clock is blanked and the nightlite is malfunctioning. Dreaming. I figure I'll resume my flying goal and practice.

I head outside. I'm about to leave the door open a crack when our dog tries to follow. I don't want any unknown complications so I close it to insure she doesn't escape. I leap in the air, and do some more flying practice, heading generally east toward Chicago.

I then see two woman, one of whom appears to be in a bikini. I get distracted ::). I swoop down and intercept them, trying to do a nice hover in mid air right before I land to further get their attention. It turns out that neither are in bikini's but they are both reasonably cute. I head over to the first girl and start chatting a bit. I then ask "would you be into eating your friends pussy a little while I watched?". She's not too receptive. This goes on for a bit. Without even asking the 2nd girl I change my strategy. Have you ever been with another woman? How about she goes down on you while I watch? This goes no better. I continue trying to convince them they should get naked and fool around, but to no avail. I wake.


Sewer Void

I wake and lie perfectly still. Vibrations kick in and I transition. I head to the kitchen wall and try to pass through. I have my target beach in mind. But I have so much trouble getting through (not having done this in a while) that I get distracted. When I do manage to open a hole, I step on it to expand it and enter, then I find myself in a weird black/empty void. My only sensory info is a weird dripping sound like I'm in a sewer. I get a little pissed I wasted a lucid. I wake.


At the Gym, Chasing L - then some Cheryl Hines Twins

Same. Lie still and re-enter via a DEILD. I now decide to try the wall of the TV room. I move the snack tray and speaker, kneel and try to soften and push through the wall. It's easier this time, but same result. Stuck in the black void of the wall. I lose lucidity and find myself in a new scene.

I'm at an unfamiliar gym. I'm watching an older guy work out with his three teenage sons. They are all really weak, workinig with like 15 lb dumbells. I consider it a little lame. I then look over and see L from our local gym. She has on greyish tight pants, and a very sheer light red sports bra/top. The top is so sheer I can see her rather large aereola's. It hits me ... dreaming again. My first instinct is to get with L. But she is gone now. I figure she can't be far. I start walking around. The gym is huge. I make my way down a corridor and find what appears to be a bathroom door. It turns out to be the guys bathroom. I backout and try to find the ladies room. However, I get to the end of the hall and it dead ends, no ladies room. I turn around and try to find some other rooms, and figure she might be back in the main area by now. The gym is a weird maze of halls and offshoot small workout rooms. Eventually I see what looks like a school gymnasium, given its size. There are four woman far away, and each has a red top. I figure that's my best shot. I fly over to investigate.

When I get there, L is no where to be found. but one woman does catch my attention. She's standing and doing some stretching. She has on a bad 80's gym outfit complete with a head band. But she has a nice body and her perky boobs are showing from the side of her shirt. She sits down and I sit next to her. I realize she looks like a young Cheryl Hines, and her twin sister is there as well. How nice. I start hitting on them but they're not too receptive. I then say ... "you know, this is only a dream and we can do whatever we want, no one cares". They acknowledge their awareness that it's a dream. I continue ... "you know, it's not like I'm horrible looking, plus I'm really fit". I flex my left arm and give them a side shot. This catches to left most Cheryl's attention. She says "OK, I'm interested". We get up and take a walk to find some privacy.

We walk around but can't find a good spot. Eventually, we enter what appears to be a workshop. It's dirty and messy with shelves and tools all over the place. I'm thinking to myself I can bend her over a shelf. Just when I turn to get her into position, she's gone. I guess she was looking for a more romantic enviroment  O_O. I'm thinking to myself that maybe I should just jerk off, as this is getting too tough. At this point a guy in a business suit walks in and I drop my cock from my hand and try to look casual. He passes by. I leave the room wondering if I should just wake myself at this point. I wake without trying.


LG From The Gym

I find myself in another random gym I spot LG who is friends w/ my wife. I realize it's an unknown scene and that I dreaming again. LG is very attractive though we have never really gotten along well. She looks real hot though, in a cute bright blue gym outfit. I walk over and take her by the hand. She seems interested. We find a small bathroom. This time I'm not so subtle. I bend her over the sink, and pull her pants down to her knees. She seems totally cool with this and I warm her up with a finger. I soon enter her from behind. We're both enjoying the sex (who knew she was secretly into me) and this goes on for a minute or two before  I either wake, or lose lucidity - I forget which.


*****************************************

I finally get to the counter and pull the right most card but it's squigly lines. Miss.

Zener Pull + Guest in our Bed


I exit a rather uneventful non-lucid, something about being in school. I lie still and get a nice wave of vibrations. When they end I sit up and do my usual VCR clock RC. It's blank and I'm sure I'm dreaming. I have a little trouble getting off the couch, but just relax and manage fine. When I get to the counter, there are a whole bunch of items scattered about, and each of the 3 Zener cards has a small handle on it. I pull the left most card and see a nicely formed cross symbol. But as I look some more, it morphs into the following:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/3df071d0-07b0-4256-8b63-5de86370df05.png)

So now it's like three little crosses jutting out from another structure. I question whether the three is a reference to the three squigly lines card? Just then, my feet rise off the ground and I start floating. My feet then kick out from under me very fast and float backwards toward the ceiling.  I wake (FA).

I'm pretty pissed that the dream was so short. I hear some scratching in the ceiling, like a mouse is above me (I have now realized this is a weird and recurrent DS). I go to the counter and pull the left card. It's the cross. But then I look again and it's a square. This confuses me since I didn't even leave the square out? Does the four sides of the square represent the four elements of the cross (again, more confusion here). I exit the kitchen and soon realize my eye sight is a bit off. I return to the kitchen and it hits me. Am I still dreaming? I try a mid air hover and succeed. Yep - still dreaming.

Leave the house or stay? I decide to go to the stairwell as I wanted to see if I could conjure something interesting upstairs. Sure enough, I hear some subtle moaning. I head up, and when I get to the bedroom, my wife is in bed with LG. She's on top and she's reaching below and behind with a vibrator, working her friend (wow, that was easy). I get anxious of course and start removing my pants and underwear. I reach into the nightstand for some lube. By the time I look in bed again, LG is gone and it's just my wife playing with herself. I hop in and we start fooling around, but it ends a little early. I wake.

*****************************************

When I pull the cards, I figure the left card must certainly be the cross and that the middle card must be squigly lines (hence the "three" influence). I pull them in that order, and the anticipated sequence is exactly correct (cross, squigly lines, star).

Hey man, if you can find a NT, I will share the details of my work under NDA. I have a US patent application filed, but I decided not to publish, which gives better control over what I will share and when.

Moonbeam and Clairity were both able to find used NT's on the market. They were pretty persistent. That's the trick. I've also looked but not as often, and like you didn't find any.

I am considering doing some work on a simple op amp based ckt that would be driven by a wav file player (e.g. PC). But it's not the highest priority for me right now. I have a few other messes to fix, like finding a job in this crap economy.

So I would suggest working to find a used NT. The typically go for about $400.00 used.

I am considering doing some work on a simple op amp based ckt that would be driven by a wav file player (e.g. PC). But it's not the highest priority for me right now. I have a few other messes to fix, like finding a job in this crap economy.

So I would suggest working to find a used NT. The typically go for about $400.00 used.

I cannot find a used one, most of the ones I find are posts 45875480975 years old. But I will keep looking. Perhaps when you have time you can see if there are other devices available that can do the same. I just can't afford the $700, i can find the new ones easy...

I don't think there are any other commercial devices which excercise the frequency range of interest. This question has come up many times of course.


Like I said, with some persistence, I bet you can find one used at a decent price. Should that person have two they're trying to unload, let me know - I'm in on one.

What's Growing on my Leg

I'm in the bathroom and notice a mole on my leg. It's sore and I take a closer look. I notice that it's all irregular in shape, crusty around the edges and raw in the middle. It's also emitting a light puss discharge. I look away momentarily and look at the mole again. It is now a huge deformity. Adjacent to the main deformity I notice a human ear growing off my leg. The ear is perfectly formed. There is also a hearing aid with the electronic part embedded into my theigh. WTF? I look at this for a while and even look in the mirror a few feet away to view this from afar. I can't quite figure it out?

I leave the bathroom and enter what appears to be the hallway of our old NY based house, though I don't catch it as such. It finally dawns on me as I get to the front door and exit, that perhaps I'm dreaming. By instinct, I jump in the air and flap. Sure enough I get a nice hover, then do a little flying back and forth in front of the house. I then remember my goals, not even realizing they are not possible because I'm not at my present house.

I re-enter and go to the kitchen counter. There are 3 cards and I flip the middle one. It's a wedge shaped and slightly curved rectangle. I flip the card to the left, basically the same thing. This confuses me. I didn't leave out a rectangle or square? I decide to head to the bedroom to see what I can conjure up there. I pass the TV room. It's now late night and my mom is sleeping on the couch. She stirs when I pass which distrupts my intentions. I ask her what she plans to do, so I can modify my plans accordingly. She tells me she's heading upstairs to go to sleep. I wake.

****************************************

This might have been interesting had I pulled all three cards in the dream. I didn't bother guessing the real card because the circumstances did not fit the model. But the middle card was squigly lines. I wonder if the right card was identical to the others, which would have added up to the three squigly lines card which was the real life middle card I pulled upon waking?

Interplanetary Travel

I get pushed into a cargo hold of what I know to be a space ship. I have no idea where I'm going, but I'm certain the destination is VERY far away. I lie down and get comfortable, since I appear to be a prisoner and I'm not going anywhere.

There are stacks of boxes along the wall. Each box is a unique color. The boxes are stacked about 4-5 high and they tile the entire wall. After a while, I notice that each box slowly comes to life. A face begins to form on the outer portion of the box. Each face starts to look around to see who or what else is there. After each box comes to life, the boxes slowly take turns insulting one another. I don't remember the exact dialogue, but it's more like playful insults.

My dog comes over to me and curls up along my legs for warmth. I wake (or otherwise lose the dream).

Brief off the cuff lucid. Only relevant because I seem to have lived elsewhere and was working,


Hovering Mail Truck

I'm driving along a narrow road in an old fashioned town. I feel like it's very urgent that I continue on quickly and get to work. I get to the town's main area and prepare to make a left at what must be the only light in town. Just before making the turn I notice two vehicles hovering in mid air. One is a mail truck, the other a car. It appears the postman stopped to hand deliver some letters to whoever was in the car. This strikes me as a "possible" dream sign.

I turn and continue driving. I need further verification. I look at the clock on the dash and it says 12:45. I look again and there is a long jumble of numbers. I look back and forth a couple times and it teeters between a reasonable time and some random numbers. Well ... definately dreaming.

It's a weird dream though. I still feel like it's very urgent to get to work, and what if I'm wrong and I'm not dreaming? Also, it's not obvious how I might leverage this dream scene. I'm driving along this narrow country road. There's nothing around me but some fields and hills. I just take in the scene and appreciate how real it all feels, and finally  wake.

Confusing Dream Info

I wake briefly and realize it's getting pretty late. I'm tired and turn over. Unexpectedly, I get an immediate series of vibrations and ride them out till they stop maybe 30 seconds later. I get up and based on my movement which feels more like a dream, I realize I've transitioned. I head to the kitchen counter.

I make a conscious effort not to bias the card picture and randomly pull the middle card. My finger is half over it but I see what appears to be the bottom of a cross. I walk to the front and take another look at this card, I realize there is much more going on:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/14928a35-ad98-45ac-b23a-85a1092ce7a1.png)

It's basically a star like the card, then a cross and star which don't have the red filler color. I briefly think about how to interpret this? I first thought I saw a cross. There are two stars and only the star is filled in. There are three symbols, does this mean 3 = squigly lines. Logic overload :sad1:. I simply memorize the pattern and leave the house.

I decide to try to find an attractive DC. I head west and realize it's too early, no one is up yet. I look east and there is an attractive DC about 500 feet up the road. However, the wind is blowing E to W rather strongly and it doesn't appear worth my time to fight it right now. I continue west. Eventually, I get to a house where people appear to be partying and perhaps still up from the previous night. There is what appears to be a room which is a cross between and indoor/outdoor 3 season porch type room and a kitchen (with an island). There are a few guys and one attractive gal. Again, I don't feel like fighting the guys to get to the girl, that would be nothing but distracting.

I continue and find myself sliding down a steep incline. When it stops, I am inside a buildinig. There is a cutout to a lower level and I can only see a little ways in. The cutout is too small for me to go through. There are several people in this lower room and I figure it's worth exploring. However, there is a structural piece of the wall in my way. I decide to try to move it. I get on my back and put my feet on the wall to push it open. At about this time I wake (the dog was barking at the lawn spraying service across the way).

************************

Honestly, this info seemed really indeterminate. I guess star was the right choice, but cross was close. I can't say I felt strongly about either. The sequence wound up being:

squigly lines, star, cross

I am going to attempt this combo in 2 days. Only I think my patch is at 7 mg, and theanine at 300 mg. I did 8 mg G with 600 mg Ginseng this morning. WHAT A FAILURE.

Yeah, I've been meaning to check out the book.

Usually, the basic Hup-A/N combo works well for me. But I've been going a little heavy on AcH impacting supps lately, so I didn't get my usual result. In fact, I'm sure the Hup-A had more or less worn off at that point, and the N was probably responsible for the WILD.

Flying Over a College

I'm in what appears to be a mall. There are many small stores and lots of people milling about. It strikes me that I can't remember anything about my recent past, like this scene had just manifested. I immediately realize I'm dreaming.

There is an exit and I feel that leaving the mall might yield a more interesting experience. Upon leaving, the scene takes on one that is much more reminiscent of a medium sized college. Again, lots of people roaming about. I'm not in a social mood per say and jump in the air, flapping a little. I gain enough altitude to get about building height (a few stories) and begin to soar across the campus. I don't have much intention or any specific goal. I just enjoy the flight for another minute or two before waking.

Odd night. Dozed from 9 - 11:30 on the couch. Got wide awake again. 3 mg melatonin at 12:30. Asleep around 1:30. Several lucids from ~3-5 (three in total, already forgotten one).


Who Cares if Dad is Right There

I find myself in the front yard and somehow realize it's a dream. I see a number of people about 4 houses to the east. I head that way. I do this moon walk jumpy thing the whole way over.

When I get there, the house is on a hill and the driveway is on about a 70 degree angle, far too steep for a car to climb. I scale the driveway and get to the house. There are two people there. One 50ish woman. She looks really good for her age. She's wearing nothing more than panties and has a really huge chest. And ... my dad.

I think about what to do here for a moment. My usual instinct would be to walk away, since trying to get it on with a DC in front of my dad is weird at best. But I take it as a personal challenge to ignore his precense. I drop my pants and sit on the driveway expecting the woman to walk over. Sure enough, she does and gives me some nice oral for a minute or so before I wake.


Finally - A Conversation About Lucidity Makes Me Lucid

I'm on the phone on a conference call. It's with our old team in India. We somehow get on the conversation of lucid dreaming. I'm explaining to them what is is, figuring that at least one of these guys must know something about it. After all, LDing is more common in the east in general.

At some point during the conversation. I realize I'm dreaming. I walk around the room a little and just take in the scene - not really sure where to go with this. I wake.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical July 31, 2009, 08:10:22 AM
G/C night. The first dream must have went 30 min or so and actually represented the ramp up in G/C levels, since I woke out of that first lucid about 47 min after taking those supps.


Treasure Hunt at the Rock

My alarm goes off. I realize it's dawn and I jump out of bed to shut the alarm. Immediately, I realize that I'm in our old NY house and the room config is wrong. I hit the button on the clock but it only serves to reduce the volume. I don't care, and give up. I head downstairs quite excited that I'm here and wondering what the dream will hold. I make my way past the kitchen counter and realize there are 3 Zener cards sitting there. Well, this is the wrong experiment really, but worth trying. I pull the left card and it's 3 vertical symbols (cross, squigly line, junk character). Squigly line jumps out at me. I pull the middle card and it's a nice clean cross. I pull the right card ... junk characters plus about 3/4 of a nice star character. OK - seems like squigly line, cross, star. I decide to go upstairs to see if I can conjure a hot DC in bed. I somehow get the idea I can do this if I head to the MBR. When I get there, it's just mom and dad sleeping. No dice. I head back down.

I leave through the front door and see a really beautiful metallic blue convertible Camaro on the driveway. I get the urge to take it for a spin. I wonder if it will work or malfunction in my dream? Well it's worth trying. I go back into the kitchen to find the basket with the car keys. When I do, it's not clear which keys are for the Camaro? Then I hear my dad coming down. I put the keys away and notice a book with lots of old fashioned car pictures. I check it out briefly until my dad comes down. I decide to grab a chair and bring it outside. He asks about this and I casually tell him "oh, I'm going to sit outside". This diversion satisfies him. I start walking north bound.

In reality, I'm again trying to find an attractive DC. But it's too early and no one is up. I wander to the cliff overlooking the LI sound. It's still pretty dark, but the flood lights from the backyards of various houses is lighting up the beach wonderfully. It's a very low tide and the water is crystal clear (more like winter time when the algea dies off). I can see to the bottom of the sand bar and have a great view of the two jetties. Rather than walk down the cliff, I decide to be ambitious and jump right off. I immediately get an effortless hover going. It's so beautiful flying over this early morning scene. Then my obvious goal hits me ... I must get to the party rock and rendevous with my friend S.

I start flying backstroke style toward the east. I have a few hundred yard journey. The trip however takes forever. Eventually, I descend into the water and now I'm doing a real backstroke. I also have on a life vest which is odd, since I', a pretty good swimmer IRL. I have a lot of concern about crashing into some of the high jagged rocks which stick out at low tide, but I continue. Eventually, I realize I've overshot the rock by about 100 feet. I swim back and head to shore.

The rock is a little higher up the beach than IRL. Also, it looks exactly correct but is spun around 180 degrees. I get to the low end and see the oddest thing. There are little designs on the rock made by what appears to be "light brite" pegs (you would need to be about >= 40 to know what the hell that is  ;) ). Interestingly, two of the patterns are arrows, one on top of the other and both point right to left (west bound). A message from S? I get the sense that maybe he has left a present buried to the left of the rock. I get very excited and start digging. Knowing S, I'm pretty sure what I'll find. I dig for a minute then see a bright light from the corner of my left eye. It becomes annoying and I eventually wake (my right eye was exposed to the TV that had been left on and the segment was very bright).

************************

I get up and flip the cards. I had the pattern exactly wrong, It was (star, cross, squigly lines). I go back to sleep. Then it hits me ...duh. Could the rock that was flipped the wrong way, and the arrows pointing right to left have indicated that the message was not L -> R but R -> L. It seems too obvious now. I got the sequence and missed the directional message. I actually feel like this was a hit.


Bringing Back a Dream Item?

Long winded non lucid segment about trying to find a bathroom -> Eventually I find myself in a parking garage. I exit my car and realize I left my wallet and keys on the back seat. Crap! There are three guys there who seem like they want to start trouble. I instinctively reach through the glass and grab my stuff. Oh ... lucid. I ignore the guys, put my wallet in my pocket and head to the stair well. I climb down two flight of stairs anxious to see what I'll find. I enter a door and find myself in what appears to be a conference hall. It's quite fancy and there are little tables scattered about with breakfast foods. I see a table and decide to ask the guy servicing it for an espresso. But my mouth is very dry and I have a hard time getting the words out. He asks me to repeat and I don't bother. I carry on.

I then realize that the key ring which is around my finger is getting very tight. I try to get it off but can't. It's really hurting at this point and totally cutting off my circulation. I try some more and  wake (FA).

I look at my finger and realize that my old copper wedding band (I found as a kid) is tightly around my finger. My actual wedding band is around the opposite finger and both are tight. Did I manage to bring something out of my dreamspace back with me? Then it hits me. Oh ... still dreaming, just a FA. I get up and head to the Zener cards. I pull the right most card and see:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/a30e9769-3c42-44f7-8123-159a631890e2.png)

where the horizontal and vertical pairs are moving in/out so that sometimes the vertical lines are the big ones and vice versa. Then a picture starts to form on the card. I watch it quite mesmerized. Eventually, I remember my next goal. Get to othe moon. I head to the TV room wall, move the speaker and try to open a space time portal to the moon. I just start when I finally lose the dream and  wake.

**************************************************

I was really quite confident I would pull a cross. Turns out it was squigly lines. Weird. But there was a level of indirection here. It was a FA based on a previous lucid sequence. Anyway - Miss.

Generally bad sleep last night with lots of unpleasant non-lucids. But restlessness did buy me one brief lucid:


On the Desk

I'm in my old room in NY. There's a woman sitting on the desk, hanging over it just enough for us to be having sex. It's very intense and goes on for a while. I wake (FA).

As soon as I sit up, I realize what just happened and of course realize I'm dreaming. The woman in question is still there so I of course start up with her again. But as I enter her, she begins to lose cohesion, slowly turning into nothing more than air. The dream falls apart almost as quick. I wake.

G/C night. 5 days between uses. Pretty good response.


Zener Card Pull + Walking Through Grass

I have a prolonged series of vibrations. When they stop I'm, convinced I've transitioned. I immediately make my way to the counter. I have some trouble walking but get unstuck and make it to the counter. The night lite has malfunctioned and it's quite dark. I pull the right most card and hold it more toward the window where there's a trace of light. It's the squigly lines card, and it looks just like IRL. Satisfied, I move to my next task.

I go to the TV room and move the speaker away to get at the wall. I also notice to additional pairs of speakers and realize they are from mom/dad's stereo from around 1970 (Lafayette speakers). I place my hand on the wall to try to open a portal to the moon. However, there is a tarp on the wall and when I place my hands on it, I realize the sheetrock has been cut away. I have no sturdy backdrop here and hence the plan is aborted. I wake (FA).

I head over to the cards to check the right card. I flip it and it's blank. I flip it a few more times and realize the card is truely blank. Then I realize there's a page with some Dora stuff on it (my daughters). Oh duh ... still dreaming. I decide to head out to do some flying. I exit and leave the door open. It's pitch black, I can see nothing. I feel my way and the oddest thing happens. I feel grass everywhere. It feels like short grass but it's everywhere I touch (torso level). Within a minute, my eyes adjust and everything is back to normal.  I see a guy walking in the street but ignore him. My dog runs out and starts barking. At first I think she's barking at me thinking I'm an intruder, but it turns out she chases the guy. I wish her luck.

I jump in the air and flap. I get mediocre height. I then realize that my shirt is buttoned at the wrist and the sleeves are too short. This is inhibiting my arm motion and making flight difficult. I manage to leap again and do a few flips just for fun. I finally wake for real.

******************************************

I get up and pull the R card. It is in fact squigly lines, running horizontal just like in the dream.


Grandma's Weird Eyebrows

I'm lying on the couch and get the sense that I may be dreaming. I walk over to the VCR and the numbers are washed out. Dreaming. I head to the counter to do another Zener card experiment. The night lite is illuminating the area fine this time. I pull the left card and it's a square. But I didn't leave out a square card? Then before my eyes, it reconfigures to a star, though not a very symmetric one. So is square to map to the cross? Or is the transformation to star more correct? Time to move on.

I decide to use the mirrored shower door in the 1st floor bath for a portal this time, trying to combine the moon and adv tasks. When I get in the bathroom there's a dripping sounds. I tighten the faucet and it stops. I turn on the lights. They work but the light is very dim. I place my hands on the door and try to soften and push through. But the door has too much play in it and it feels like my pressure is going to knock it off its track. I give up. I do notice however that the shower door is steamed up. It dawns on me that a naked woman could be in there :angel:. I open it, but the shower is empty.

Upon leaving the bathroom, I unexpectedly bump into my deceased grandmother T. She seems quite happy but she's done something really bizarre to her eye brows. They are upturned on the outer sides. I consider asking why she did this, then consider asking her if she knows she's a DC. I keep my mouth shut and decide to hold these questions. She tells me that she might go car shopping today. I tell her that she should help herself to some coffee and something to eat. She seems to think this is a good idea.

I leave my grandmother and head upstairs. I entertain the thought of waking my dream wife for sex, but last I was in bed, our daughter was there too, so I'm sure she will still be there. I go to the music room, pull the couch off the wall and try the space time portal thing one final time. I soften the wall and push in imagining the moon on the other side. When I finally make my way through the gelatanous material, I break through a skin like membrane and find myself floating in space. Just blackness and stars. Not what I was hoping for, but pretty damn cool.  I wake about a minute later.

***************************************

I'm torn between cross or star. I pull the left card and it's squigly lines again. FA's scenarios seem to lead to less reliable experimental results here.

I am certain things will change for the better re: a job shortly.  The main thing is to keep trying and not give up.  If you keep trying passionately then a job is inevitable I would say - whatever you give your attention to you usually get in my experience.  

I have been in long job searches myself in the past and they always come along. The danger is giving up one application from acceptance.  I knew a guy who sent 550 CVs and Covering letters for Job Applications until he finally got a job.

In the mean time enjoy your freedom ;) as there is less time for reading, painting and dreaming once your back in the rat race!

: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 05, 2009, 11:09:52 AM
Thanks Namaste. Oh, things will get resolved one way or the other. There are many layers of issues here. Our lousy economy, the rate at which high tech jobs have been sucked from our country, and the nitch I've worked my way into. I've held a pretty lofty managers position for 5 years now. I think that once you're at that level, no one wants to see you go down a rung a take a worker bee position - though I would be thrilled to do so. But looking for such a position means relocation, which seems to have its own challenges (companies prefer not to relocate people due to cost and waiting time, plus as one HR person said to me - 75% of the people who say they can relocate, turn down the job when offered because they have second thoughts). Well, those are the basic layers anyway.

Haha, interesting. I'm curious as to what her explanation would have been if you asked her what she had done to her eyebrows. Though perhaps the knowledge that she was simply a dream character would have been too much for her ;)

I soften the wall and push in imagining the moon on the other side. When I finally make my way through the gelatanous material, I break through a skin like membrane and find myself floating in space. Just blackness and stars. Not what I was hoping for, but pretty damn cool.
Amazing! And hey, you almost got there~

Do you really have a Music room in real life?? How wonderful!! Something i always wished for..

I'm also job searching at the moment.. more time for lucid dreaming.
I hope you find something suitable soon, keep it up!

Oh yes. My wife has a seperate room for herself which she uses as her office. I have a seperate room which I use to house a stereo and all of my guitars, amps, 4-track etc ...

wahah :D you appeared unexpectedly in my non-lucid dream!

I'm hanging around some large rocks on the grounds and a lady comes up to chat, she mentions something about a couple attending zen retreat only they have their own cabin somewhere. She mentions the name DrTechnical and a ladies name (i think) starting with S. My attention perks up. I ask her to repeat that name as i wasnt sure i heard her right. She said it again and i became excited that a forum user might be here.
Its time for Kinin (walking meditation) in the meditation room, as i'm doing the slow walk, i hear 3 people approaching the building, i just have to look over to see who it is. Its the couple! I try to get a good look at DrTechnical through the dirty window. Only being able to see his head if i stand on tip toe, i see he looks much younger than the photo perhaps in his late 20's with lighter hair, a little slimmer.. 
The window turns into a bus window and now i am on a school trip watching the country scenery go by. I turn around and notice the usual high school people on the bus....

2:40  EGCG/SD

4:34  wake, no dream recall
4:41  wake from WILD


Complications

I begin to feel very disoriented, like I'm drifting off. I get a brief visual of lying on a couch in an office. I realize I'm close to dreaming and try to stick with it. I get a nice series of vibrations, with the usual feeling that my body is rocking back and forth. As they taper, I sit up and find myself on my dream couch in the TV room. I do a sanity check vs. the VCR clock and it appears to say 1:17 though it is hard to focus on. Clearly dreaming.

I make my way straight to the Zener cards as that had been my prime intention. I flip the right card and see what immediately strikes me as the squigly lines card. But on closer inspection it looks more like:


(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/19bcbaa6-fdf2-4ef9-a213-eab6e49b8090.png)

I try to memorize this pattern as best I can. I move on.

I take a brief wwalk over to the kitchen table and get stuck against something. I realize I'm wearing a bathrobe and it's caught, perhaps on a chair. I shed the robe and continue. I figure the moon task in in order. The dream feels nice and stable and I'm optimistic about this next task. I re-enter the TV room and briefly startle my dog. I head to the usual space/time portal wall.

Like last time however, there is lot's of unusual stuff in the way. The lafayette speaker is not only in the way, it's hanging froom a nail on the wall. It has a see through cover and I notice it has 4 small speakers. There is some other junk hanging as well. There is also a box next to my RL Klipcsh speaker which I move right away. I then realize I'm chewing on some gum and it's very annoying. I remove it and stick it on the speaker, unconcerned about the mess. I realize I have some more gum stuck between my upper right teeth. I take the old gum, stick it back in my mouth and use it to pull the residual stuck gum off and onto the main gum blob. Well that actually worked pretty well  :). I continue moving crap out of the way  but wake.

******************************

I pull the R card and it's squigly lines. I nice neat hit. I also pull the remaining cards R->L (cross and star). I head back to the couch to try to dream some more. It strikes me that the 4 lines I saw in the S-lines card may have been influenced by the adjacent cross card with it's association to "4".

6 days between G/C usage. Medium response, mediocre cognitive ability. Tons of weird non-lucids.


Can You Even Smoke Broccoli?

I'm in a room with a few people including GF from high school. He asks if I'd been into smoking a little weed. I say yes and he leaves for a few minutes. When he returns he drops a small manilla envelope on a desk. He goes about his business. I figure it's for me to decide what if anything to do with it.

I walk over and peak into the envelope. It's some nice green bud with little red hairs. This is going to be pretty good. I proceed to smell it. Hmmm, no smell at all. That's weird. I grab the envelope and go to the adjacent room looking for a smoking device. When  I enter this room, it's nothing but white light, kind of like how heaven is sometimes depicted on TV.

I realize I'm dreaming. It's all very surreal. I squeeze the envelope open and spill the contents out onto my hand. It's no longer some nice green bud, it's several small pieces of broccoli. Am I supposed to smoke this? How can I, I don't even have anything to smoke it with? I wake (actually, I think the dream changed and I lost lucidity.


Zener Cards and a Little Flying

I wake and lie still. Sure enough, some vibrations kick in and I wait for them to subside. When they do, I have a hard time swinging off the couch. I walk to the kitchen counter. I am looking for a little more confirmation that I'm dreaming, when I get stuck in mid walk. I relax and pull out of the stuck point, fully convinced I'm dreaming. I see the three cards.

I pull the middle one and it's a square. It doesn't even hit me that this is an invalid card. When I angle the card differently, it becomes the star shape. I notice that the card is like a hologram. I can teeter between the square and star quite predictably depending on the angle of view. I flip the right card and see a nice perfect star. I figure the left card must be squigly lines. By now however, I notice many small puzzle pieces scattered about and the left card is a small white puzzle piece. I flip it and it's just some junk imagery. I'm satisfied and head outside to fly.

I trip and get momentarily stuck on the floor. I relax, get up and continue. I leave the porch, run and flap. I get nice height right away. I just do some flying in the yard. Some backstroke flying, and some superman style stuff. The view below is obscured because it is so dark, but it feels good. I soon wake.

****************************************

One hit and one miss. It still didn't strike me due to groggyness, that square is not valid. I expected square and star. I saw squigly lines and star.



Another New Sex Position

I am lying on the couch trying to sleep. I hear some noise consistent with my wife being in the kitchen. I realize I may be dreaming. I get up to check it out. When I get there, she is no where to be found, but I am sure I must be dreaming. I figure I will go find her.

5 days between G/C uses. Very mentally restless during WBTB. Only slept about 15 minutes (post supps) but managed two lucids.


Can't Get Fully Undressed

I start to get some good pre-WILD imagery forming around me. Next I know, I am more or less embedded into a scene reminiscent of a classroom. There's a teacher at the head of the class and several students leaving. As I am patiently waiting for the dream to stabilize, the remaining people depart, and I'm the only one left.

The dream is finally stable. I notice a door leading to a back room. It seems to be important so I open the door and enter. It's a small bathroom, more like a bathroom to a house, rather than a bathroom to a school or other commercial building. The shower is running and someone is inside :). I'm sure it's a woman and I'm sure she'll be a hottie. I start getting undressed. I have quite a bit on. I manage to remove my shoes, socks, pants and underwear. The underwear is tough to get around my feet but I finally manage. Only the shirt is left.

I realize however, that the shirt is tighter than IRL, and it's a little sweaty, especially on the back. I try every possible way to get it off (pull over the head, pull it over inside out, etc ...). No dice. It's totally stuck. Well I am naked from the waist down. I figure that's enough, though not optimal for shower sex. I give it one more try, and wrestle with the shirt once more. The dream breaks up and I wake.


Zener Pull + Flight Into Space

I wake from the previous lucid and lie still. I start to feel vibrations. At roughly this time, I hear my daughter crying upstairs, like she had a bad dream and left her room to hop in mom/dad's bed. The vibrations last for a while, and it's unclear if this is a FA (my daughter's crying is part of the dream), a DEILD (her crying got superimposed into the dream), or I woke and subsequently started dreaming all these events.

Regardless, the vibrations stop and there is quite the commotion going on. A is crying and I hear both of them heading downstairs. I get up and head to the counter. The cards are trailing away (left most near, right most furthest) and the night lite is off. However, there's a night lite on over the stove which is not there IRL. I pull the left card and bring it over to the stove. It's the cross. But again, there is a hologram effect going on, where if I move the card a little, I will see a cross, or a hybrid cross/star. Satisfied, I leave the house and avoid the commotion heading my way.

I go out the porch door and there is a constellation which catches my eye, very low on the horizon. The cluster of stars is very bright and tightly packed, and I don't recognize it. I look for the moon but don't see it. I decide to leap in the air to get some height over the trees and have a look around. I can only get about 100 feet up though. Frustrated, I tell myself this is all in my mind and I can do whatever I want. I envision myself shooting up into the air and heading toward the moon. This is exactly what happens. There is a bright full moon ahead of me and I am shooting into space at a high rate of speed. My arms are angled slightly away from the side of my body as if to induce better aerodynamics. The sensation is wonderful as I zip through space. But I realize the moon is not getting any closer and I'm not sure what to do about this  ???.  I soon wake.

***********************************

I head to the counter pretty darn sure the L card will be a cross. It is. I go back to the couch and review the dream. Then it hits me that the middle card must be star due to the confused hologram message, and of course the R one would be squigly lines. I get up again and pull the remaining cards and that is exactly what I see.

CES induced.  A few Zener card experiments included here, but both were subsequent to FA's, and I will be tracking these differently (see Dream PSI experiment thread).


Zener Pull - FA

I fall asleep with the NT on and start dreaming ...  I'm at a mall on a second level when I notice some guy at a kiosk trying to get attention for his products. He starts a loud conversation with everyone walking by and most people are not interested. He sees me and gestures for me to come down to ground level. There's a very attractive woman outside a store near me, and the guy on the ground explains that if I review and even buy one of his products, that this woman will be very impressed. I wake (FA).

I realize I've worn the NT long enough and remove it. I still feel it pulsing on my ears even though the electrodes are now in my hands. I let go completely, and still feel a pulsing effect. Ah .... dreaming! I get up and make my way to the countertop. My foot momentarily gets stuck in a pillow on the floor but I manage to pull it out. When I get to the counter, I flip the right most card. The shape is a cross - solid black in color, perfectly well defined, and the background is white as expected. Altering the angle of the card yeilds a slight distortion to the lower portion of the cross. I carry on.

I make my way to the front door to do some flying but the dream feels very unstable. I panic a little, and in my haste, I wake.

***************************************

I realize the FA probably screwed up the PSI info. I walk over pretty sure I should not expect a cross. I pull the RL card and it's squigly lines.



Oh Yeah, I Need to Get Hit By a car

I'm on a huge starship docked at a space port. There are many smaller ships flying about. I notice two ships in formation. Each is a two man vessel and the eye catching feature is the "face" on the front of the ship. Each ship has a row of lights running horizontal on the lower front portion of the ship, and each guy is also lit up in an orange glow - collectively this gives the appearance of a face at the front of the ship. I notice a medium sized vessel break away from the croud of ships and jump to warp speed, disappearing in front of my eyes. I envy their situation. They get to go on a cool adventure while I have to sit by and be captain of a ship docked at space port, doing nothing. I wake (FA).

I realize I've just woken but find myself up and about at the kitchen table. It doesn't strike me as odd yet. I walk over to the cards and flip the left one. It's 5 parallel straight lines, one red and the rest black. I decide to flip the remaining cards since the first one was so atypical. I see the middle card as a star and the right one as 7-8 randomly placed small circles. I realize this is very odd and then it hits me. Dreaming.

I head out to fly, noting that it's early morning and the sun is already up. I leap in the air and flap. I get about half as high as the surrounding trees when I realize I can't get any heigher. The dream feels wonderfully real, but I'm stuck for more height. I see a branch and fly over, figuring I can climb the tree. I reach the branch and it quickly brakes off in my hand. It's pretty big though and a thought hits me. I will fly down, ram it into the ground and push off it with all my strength - sort of like a modifed pole vault. I do this, but the branch goes way deeper into the ground than expected and throws me off. I hit the ground and head to the street.

I start running east and try to pick up speed. I then realize a car is approaching from behind. I stop, turn and notice he is trying to avoid me. at the last second I leap in front of the car expecting it to go through me. He jams on the breaks and hits me. It doesn't hurt per say, but it's very forceful. I get pissed that he ruined my plans and instinctively lift the car from its bumber and flip the whole car front over back and it lands upside down and on an angle. I run and leap in the air again.

I am enjoying my flight but can't get decent altitude. Again, I think about how real the dream feels. I then see an enormous tree. It has a trunk that must be 8-10 feet wide, and it's maybe 300 feet tall. I decend to the base and decide to climb it to the top, with the intention of jumping off at that height. I start climbing. The sensations are very real, but the tree itself is very unusual. It has a dirty brownish moss covering the branches. I have only made my way up 20 feet or so when one of the branches gives and I do a back flip to the ground. I try to spring board off the ground, hit another branch on the way back up and repeat the back flip/spring board action trying to get some thrust. But I wake.

************************

Same deal. The FA probably invalidates the experiement, but ... The parallel lines are most like squigly lines. This turns out to be correct. But the remaining sequence is cross, star, not vice versa.

6 days between G/C uses. One very stable lucid, but low level mentally. Lots of non lucids.


Low Level Lucids = Instinctual Behavior = Sex

(some sequence of non lucid dreaming) ... I find myself on the couch and the young asst mgr from our gym is next to me. I ask him to walk over to the Zener cards and to flip the left card. I'm groggy and having trouble talking. He walks over. I ask him if he sees a star, cross or squigly lines. He tells me star. I'm satisfied. I lie back down for a while. Then I decide to see what the card is myself. I'm about half lucid at this point but still confused. I flip the card and it's a star but it's filled in with different pastel shades, apparently from a pencil. Mostly greens and pinks. I flip the next card and it's a star with about ten points and again, shaded in pastel tones. Wait .... I don't own these cards. Dreaming.

I'm lucid but it's not super high level. None of my goals come to mind. Instictively I decide to leave the house. It's dark but I find the door and leave. It's way too dark to see anything and I'm waiting for my night vision to kick in. It starts to adjust when my dog escapes, barks and runs straight across the street. I see another dog there and hope there's not going to be a big fight. At about this time my neighbor across the street opens his garage, pulls out fast with screeching tires, and drives away. My dog isn't getting into any major trouble and I move on.

I decide to find a gal. I see T leaving his house with their kid and presumably J is still at home. I think about it briefly but decide against. I find myself having some difficulty moving and somehow come up with a new walking pattern. It's kind of like shuffling across the street on my butt while using my arms to row backwards. I come across one woman and say high but she totally blows me off. There's a party on the corner house but I don't know those people well and I continue.

I keep walking/rowing and I come across a huge tented party. The tent is about 100 X 200 and it appears to be a wedding. I enter and look around. I see a table of woman and one catches my eye. She gorgeous, with a shapely green dress, nice curves and long flowing blond hair. I hold out my hand and ask if I can speak with her in private. She takes my hand and readily agrees. We walk around a find a little closet like area in this tented structure.

LOL at the "nosy question". I figured it was going to be a performance anxiety question ... whose answer is no - only due to over use.

I've had a few orgasms within lucid dreams. They felt very real, and yes no mess. But I'm pretty sure the mess is possible, if you woke in the middle of the dream orgasm.

To a large degree it's a mental block. I can play amateur psycologist a throw a few theories out there. I would like to get better at that. But in general, dream stability is more of a challenge for me, than getting lucid of accomplishing a difficut goal.

So much to accomplish, so little time.

Flying in Space w/ K

I'm with my wife and we are both sitting outside a space ship. I don't recall if we are wearing space suits per say. We see two space shuttles and we look at each other sort of acknowledging that it would be cool to float over to these. We try and get some nice space flying going, but neither of us make it to either space shuttle. Scene change.

I'm now at our old NY house in the backyard. My brother is there and I'm jumping on the ground and shooting way high into the air. On about the 3rd jump, I realize that the perspective and sensation I get when doing this is exactly what I experience in my lucids. I realize I'm dreaming. It's rather low level, but I proceed to jump as high as possible a few times. I get maybe 500 feet into the air with each jump. I fly horizontally for a bit, but there's another scene change and I lose lucidity.
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 26, 2009, 10:16:56 AM
This was one of the most bizarre lucid experiences. FA after FA after FA. Day two of a low calorie/low carb cycle. Maybe that was it?


Can't Tune Back Into my Own Quantum Reality  O_O

I'm in a house I don't recognize. It's the middle of the night and my dad comes down to do some chores. I start to get the sense I may be dreaming. I am near a kitchen and decide to fabricate some zener cards on the counter as sort of a RT. I try and succeed. I flip the middle card and it's a square, which is not a valid card that I left out IRL. I'm now convinced I'm dreaming. I walk around some trying to figure out what to do, but there's a scene change.

I find myself in a new house and I'm still lucid. I instinctively make my way to some stairs and head down. I touch my fingers to my palms and then to my pants for some tactile sensation and stability. I leave the house and finally realize where I am. I'm at Granma/Grampa's old Bayside house. I exit, run and jump in the air. I tell myself that flying will be easy this time and visualize a strong take off. This works great and I start to zoom around the neighborhood. I notice a building with an interesting roof and nearby trees. I fly over and hover to check it out. I wake (FA).

I head over to the zener cards and pull the left one (even though this is not the correct experiemental framework). It's an invalid shape and I immediately recognize this is a FA. What to do? I decide to go upstairs for some sex. I first imagine K in bed with her vibrator. Upon heading upstairs, I can hear her playing with herself. That worked fine. Then I imagine L in bed with her (why not!). That I can't pull off. When I get there, it's just her and her toy. I hang over the side of the bed and she works me orally while continuing with her own activities. After a while I wake (FA).

Basically the same as the previous case up to the oral stuff. This goes on for a while and I can't seem to get off, even though the dream is nice and stable. I decide to try to finish up myself. Just then, a midget with grey dreadlocks appears. She seems to want to get in on things as well. I'm just trying to relieve myself any way possible and see her precense as a major complication. I wake (FA).

Again, pretty much the same as the first FA (bad zener card, head upstairs). The lights are on in the bathroom and I figure K may be in the shower. Instead, some hispanic guy is at the sink. I briefly acknowledge his precence and head to the bedroom. We have some sex (EDIT: Hay Caramba ... sounds like I did the hispanic guy. Not so - visited the wife again) but it doesn't last too long. I wake (FA).

Same deal. I'm convinced I've really woken, but pull a bad Zener card and realize I'm still dreaming. Why the fuck can't I tune back into my own reality? This is starting to annoy me. I make the best of it. This time I head upstairs and imagine K in the shower. I get there, she's where I expected and we have some shower sex  :angel:. I wake (FA).

Same deal. I'm convinced I've finally woken. I head to the kitchen and find three cut out coupons where the Zener cards were left out. My wife is there, as well as some small boy, in place of my daughter. I'm not interested in this scene and head upstairs. As if I needed further confirmation that it's a dream, the head of the stairs is unusually close together and I need to squeeze through. I decide to fly out of one of the windows. When I get to A's room, there's a scene change and it looks like our old Plainview house. But it gets weirder. There are numerous police cars (Ford, unmarked types) in front of the house and I get the sense that they have come for me. I panic. I open the window and the top half comes off completely. I'm getting ready to make my exit, when I FINALLY wake for real.

**************************

Since the Zener experiement was so far out from the desired framework, I didn't include this experiemnt the results.

@MB: You always make me laugh. Yeah, I'm not sure if she even qualified as a midget. She was about 18 inches tall, maybe 24. What the hell would we even do?

@LB: The cops? Don't know. I did watch Matrix Re-loaded a few days back. Maybe I just felt like I didn't belong in this world anymore, and the agents realized it as well  O_O

G/C night. A few decent lucids and lots of weird/freaky non-lucids


Another Try for the Moon + a Bad Surprise

I am lying on the couch trying to sleep when I hear some faint music and voices like a TV was left on. I'm sure that was not the case and realize I'm dreaming. I get up and head to the cards. I pull the middle one and it's the number one. I pull the right card, same. I figure the left card is the number one as well and sure enough it is.  1 1 1. Not sure what to make of this? I carry on.

I exit the house and it's quite dark. It's still muggy with a slight rain. I try to leap in the air but I realize I'm wearing a bathrobe and it's inhibiting my arm flapping. I never wear bathrobes? I loosen it and leap again. This time I start to pull away fromo the earth very nicely. I flap more and continue looking up for the moon, which is unfortunately obscured by all the cloud cover. I eventually break the clouds and my eyes adjust. But there isn't anything more than nightime all around. I continue to rise.

Before long, I start to hear some music. The scene above me has a weird tappering effect like I'm in a slowly shrinking tunnel. The music is reminiscent of new age meditation type music. It's pleasant. I then see the most beautiful effect in the air. It's like a circle, with many perforations, and beams of blue light are randomly shooting from the perforations a few at a time, in sync w/ the music. The overall look is almost crystaline in nature and some of the beams are converging my way:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/9209bc58-93ec-4828-be35-5d064839a1d9.png)

(OK, that pic hardly does it justice). I enjoy this for what seems to be forever but is probably about 30 seconds or so. I start decending and there's a scene change, which leaves me back in my house.

I bump into a youger version of my brother. I tell him to just wait here, since I can't imagine anything cool to do with him at the spur of the moment. I head upstairs hoping to find K.

As I make my way upstairs, I notice two sets of feet sticking out from the bed. FINALLY, I've managed to conjure our little cutsie friend L from the gym again. I enter all excited. Then I realize it's K and some other guy, and they're sleeping. The guy is very hairy and reminds me of Louie CK. This is not good. What to do? Instinct kicks in and I wind up and throw the hardest possible overhand right cross into his face  ... and wake.


Zener Pull + Another Try w/ K

I move briefly but manage to overwise lie still. Some nice vibrations kick in and I transition. I get up and head to the zener cards. I pull the middle one and have trouble seeing the shape. I turn the nitelite on and it's basically a cross shape, with one of the four pieces missing. I decide to just head upstairs and see what's going on up there now.

I use my now famous "listen for the vibrator trick". This works brilliantly again. I find K up, under the sheets playing with herself. I pull down my pants and underwear and hop in. I get myself aroused and feel around. She's still got her panties on so I anxiously yank them down. She helps. I figure I'll work in a finger to see if she's ready. I do and this just drives her into a frenzy and she comes really hard. Unfortunatley, I wake.


**************************

I finally head to the counter. I pull the middle card and it's squigly lines. A miss relative to the best info I received from the 2nd lucid. Then it hits me. Maybe I misinterpreted all together:

(http://mortalmist.com/forum/dreamsketcher/uploads/1256c749-d3e9-43bb-9675-09fd06a589a0.png)

Also that plus sign only had three pieces. I think I goofed on interpretation here.

i want to fly that high tooooo... :puppydogeyes: and reach the moon. i'm yet to reach above the cloud line, that would be wonderful!
Only a few last tries for the moon, good luck!
: Re: DrTech's Technical Ecstasy
: DrTechnical August 28, 2009, 12:45:29 PM
Yeah, one or two more tries for the moon. I'll try a space time portal through the wall next. I think that stands a better chance.

Next months meeting place is a gimme, as long as the poll continues the way its looking  :).

CES + N7. Kinda low level lucid considering the combo. Some limited progress on conjuring house guests.


Trying to Facilitate the September Meeting Place

After dozing a bit and finishing a CES session, I roll over and try to fall back to sleep. No vibrations .... but instead some shimmery light waves of HI. I feel like I've transitioned back to my dreamspace. I get up for some confirmation. My first thought is to try the front door. I walk over but in the process I lose my sight, it just kinda fogs over. OK, definately dreaming. I feel for the front door. I find the handle and open it. I just relax and try to see through what feels like closed eyes. I manage to pull that off as well. The light outside the door is on, like I left it. But no one is there. I decide to head to the back but wake (FA).

I really don't have much of a clue that I'm still dreaming at this point. I try to doze back off when I get a vague visualization of a ghost like figure from the corner of my eye. It's a woman and she leans over to show me a bag of pot  O_O. It's in a small sandwich bag and it's maybe a little shy of an 1/8th. But more than enough for a dream party. I roll over to great my guest. But as quickly as she appears, she vanishes. I try the same procedure as before.

I head to the front door. I notice however that the scene in the kitchen is different. I had left out my shuffled zener cards and a bottle of rum on the kitchen counter. The rum is gone and the NT is sitting there in its place. I pull the right card and it is a nicely formed star, though the red fill color is a little dark. Somehow I forget to follow through on checking the front door. I turn and head out the door leading to the porch. My dog follows and runs ahead, exiting the porch. As soon as I get outside, I start yelling to see who might be there, realizing that I will sound insane if I'm not really dreaming.

Moonbeam ... PJ ... Walms ... Iadr ... is anyone there? The only response is my dog barking and running up to me. I start to head toward the shed. For reasons unknown, I get on my hands and knees, to sort of sneak up on it. As I get closer, I realize that the shed has a small light on it, and an overhang on the roof line. It looks more like a small house than a shed. As I get closer, I realize it IS a very small house. The lights are on inside and there are clearly two rooms. The front is reddish stained wood like IRL, but the south side is some goofy tan aluminum siding - doesn't match the front at all.

I somehow lose sight of the goal to pull someone from the portal and decide to run and fly, perhaps thinking that would get the attention of someone looking for the place. I flap a few times and the air to my side is very thick. I gain altitude and climb 100 feet or so. I then just drift through the air in a nice leisurely fashion. I see some big fire works from the chicago skyline, and wonder why the hell anyone would be shooting fireworks at this time? Who's up to see them anyway? I wake.


************************

Wake time: 4:38 CST.

I pull the right card and it's squigly lines. FA based miss.

oh ... this is a loaded task. It's only interesting in the sense of what will happen when I try to find guests. I'm lucid via WILDS and FA's all the time, you know that.

One day I'm going to goof and do weird shit while I'm not really dreaming. It's not a question of if, rather when.

My next strategy is to listen for the door knocker expecting to hear it and finding someone there. I think I can pull that off. A little more conviction at the shed portal would help too.

G/C. 6 nights between uses. I found my G experiecnes to be lower level than they used to be, but very stable.


A Young/Thin Monica Lewinsky

I am trying to sleep, head facing south and the light from the TV is bothering me. I don't have the motivation to shut it off but turn my face deeper into the pillow to shield my eyes some. I wake (FA).

I'm back in my normal position, unaware I am still dreaming. My dog repositions next to me several times and I find it annoying because she is taking up too much space on the couch. I notice a digital watch wth no band. I get the weird idea that I can use the backlight feature to see guests out front should anyone arrive. I start to realize I might be dreaming. I get up and head to the zener cards. The nite light is malfunctioning and only emitting a slight glow. Definately dreaming. I pull the left card and hold it under the light. The picture is moving some, but it's a 6 pointed star. I move on.

I get to the front door and exit the house. Immediately, I hear what sounds like several teenagers in the street, and I can vaguely see a car parked on the side. I have a little troubling walking and have to sway side ways a bit to progress toward the steet. I realize the voices are female so I call out "Moonbeam? Alex Lou? either of you out there?". By the time I get to the street however, they are gone. I do see another woman heading this way walking eastbound. Her pace is very quick and I need to lounge toward her to get her attention. I miss and she passes. I blurt out the first thing which comes to mind ... "You wanna fuck?". She turns, comtemplates the question for a moment and heads back my way.

The woman is nicely dressed, with jeans and a black blazer. She has shoulder length straight black hair that wraps around the shape of her head with a part lightly on the right side. Very cute. I realize she looks like Monica Lewinsky but thinner than I remembered her.
************************

I pull the RL left card but it's squigly lines, Another FA based miss.


Mall Heist

I am at a health store buying some protein bars and powder. I have trouble finding the card to scan and apologize to the clerk for being so confused. I exit and find myself looking out to a mall. A cop is chasing some guy, gun drawn and threatening to shoot. The cop chases the thief into mall as several people yell out "shoot". I walk over as my car was parked right there. Several people leave the mall due to the commotion including my wife and daughter. They didn't realize I was shopping, nor did I realize they were. I figure they will get it once they see my vitamin shop bags. We start walking away froom the mall. At some point I realize my mouth is very dry, and A has a small cup of ice cream. She offers me a spoon and I readily accept it. I realize I'm dreaming.I enjoy the taste and smoothness of the ice cream, and appreciate my dream daughter helping me out. I take one more spoon and she gets a little anxiouos, like I'm taking too much. I just enjoy her company for another minute. I start to wake and feel some very strong vibrations. I think to myself that I'm "tuning back into my own quatum reality".  I wake (actually a scene change).

I find myself at the lake not far from my house. My dog is with me but without her leash. I find some vine and wrap it through her collar and we walk toward home. I start to get the sense I may be dreaming. As we get to my house, there's an evergreen out front (not there IRL) with some red and yellow portions. I look away and tell myself that when I look again, it will have even more red and yellow. It does ... and I realize I'm dreaming again. We walk into the backyard. As if I needed more confirmation, there is a dead dog splayed out by the garage, and my dog ignores it. I run into the back, leap and fly superman style for about 50 feet. I try again with the same result. I realize my boots are too heavy and weighing me down. I take them off, disregarding the snow and ice in the yard (??). I run, leap and flap. This time I do fine. I get about 100 feet and backstroke through the air. In time though, the scene fades and all that is left is a bright light in front of me. I then pass into an apartment building, and continue floating through the air. I float over to the kitchen and it seems like I have been here many times before. I try to escape throgh the ceilinig but I can't get through.

I realize the layout of the apt is like my grandparents place, and I find the stairs to ground level. I exit and find myself in what appears to be a quaint european village. I marvel at the complexity of the scene. I see a woman outside a shop and yell over to her several times. I finally get her attention. I ask her where we are and she responds "New England, West Virgina to be precise". I explain to her that West Virginia is not in New England but she goes into a long winded story explaining that her info is historically correct. I don't bother arguing. i continue walking through the village but eventually get tired and wonder when I will wake. This prompts a rather quick exit from my dreamspace.

: DrTechnical September 05, 2009, 09:14:03 AM
I figured I would try to focus on conjuring one particular person. I chose Moonbeam since I have a good sense of what she looks like as well as a vague recollection of her voice.

CES induced.


Hey, That's Not MB  O_O

I'm up and about in the TV room, and there are a bunch of my wifes portapockets scattered about. I move them out of the way. I realize there's an old Judas Priest song on and somehow equate that as a cue to try too lucid dream, (even though I am already dreaming, just not lucid). I get back on the couch, roll to my R side and  try to place my awareness toward my 3rd eye to induce a WILD. I get a wave of vibrations. When they stop, I can tell I'm dreaming and I'm quite aware.

I make a quick diversion to the zener cards and pull the left one. The nite light is off and I can barely make it out, but it's a small square. I look again and it says "angel" in soft scripty letters. A reference to my daughter perhaps? I give up and head outside, closing the door before my dog escapes.

I leave the porch and head to the shed. Even though it's been cool at night, I am able to conjure a nice stuffy/warm evening. My dog or one like it runs toward me from the back yard and passes by. I get to the shed when I hear some rustling of trees and leaves way in the backyard. I try to call out "Moonbeam"? but my mouth is very dry and I can hardly get it out. I then notice someone or something coming out of the trees. I distinctly hear MB's voice, though I can't make out what she's saying. Then from the trees a figure emerges ... it's ... a camel, and it looks a little pissed. I should be more freightened but I'm not.

I regain my voice and instinctively rely on searching the portal area and calling for her there, even though she seems to be to my south west (probably a mistake). I hear her voice again and my attention is diverted to that direction. By this time, the camel has morphed into a small giraffe. I walk up the the giraffe. I can feel the dream losiing cohesion, and I need to make a last ditch effort. I walk right up to the giraffe, but in a non-threatening way and bump my nose into hers. I say "and what do you have to offer", hoping to elicit a human/english response. I get nothing but a confused giraffe starring back at me. I wake.

My lucids have been a little less predictable lately, but that's a welcome change.

I think the reference to my daughter "angel(ina)" + the fact that I took her to the zoo about two weeks ago lead to the giraffe DC. My daughter wanted to see the giraffe's the most - and the zoo had a nice exhibit with adults and a number of juvenille's. She really liked it.

There's a small zoo in the NW Pheonix burbs where my folks live now. They have a big platform that the giraffe's walk up to and you can feed them. Their tongues are blueish if I recall. My little one loves that.

CES + ~ 8mg Nicotine patch. Unusually strong response, perhaps because I've been doing more CES lately. These lucids all got progressively better as time went on.

Conjuring MM members into my yard is turning into a tougher task than I thought.


Paralysis

I am dreaming about being in a room with a bunch of comedians practicing their material on each other. I start to realize I'm dreaming but don't take any action. I wake. I get pissed that I didn't really do anything about this. I relax and slowly drift off. When I feel like I've transitioned again, I sit up and find myself on my couch.

It's hard to sit up so I'm sure I'm dreaming. The VCR clock is just 3 horizontal lines like when power goes out. Since this could have been a FA I ignore the zener cards and head outside. But I'm really struggling to get around. I drag myself (literally) across the porch and out the rear door. It's totally dark and I'm close to paralyzed. I hear a car door close by the garage. Guests? I try to say something but can't. I do my best to make my way over but wake. (mouth was super dry from mouth breathing. I resolve that problem and go back to sleep).


Guests? Try #2

Again, I wake from a brief nearly lucid dream and lie still. I get lots of HI and feel myself transition. I get up and I'm on the couch but things feel way more stable. Again, I head outside. It's still very dark and I can see very little. My dog barks like she she's something or someone. I yell out "Moonbeam? Seeker? PJ?". I wait for a response but it never comes.

I walk around a bit but decide to head out front to see if I can conjure that previous car. When I make it to the garage area, there is no car. The dream is losing cohesion and I decide to head to the front door to find someone. I do my best to imagine a figure waiting at the door. When I get there, there is a ghostly figure of a woman. She doesn't see me yet. I quickly blurt out "Moonbeam!" (I use her real name here). I wake.


Guests? Try #3

Same thing. I lie still and let myself drift off when remaining consciously aware. I get up from the couch. I head outside one more time. I just walk around and scope things out. It's very quite and still dark. I decide to jump in the air and fly for a bit. I get a nice overhand swimming motion going as I "swim" through the air at high speed. The wind on my face feels incredibly real. I decide to fly over to the front yard and land on the street where people would park.

When I get there, no one is around. But I realize it's usually easy to find people along the street somewhere. as soon as I think this, I see many people exiting several cars about 5 houses over. They are headed my way. I intercept them and start scoping these DC's out. No one I recognize. One says "can I help you". I say "oh, I'm just looking for some people I know. What are your names?". One girl refers to herself and a friend as "Emily and Mellisa (or maybe it was Marilyn).  I wake.


Zener Cards + Flying + Some Adult Stuff  :angel:

I find myself on the couch and hear my wife and daughter come down. I realize it's too early for them to come for breakfast and that I'm dreaming again. I realize the dream is incredibly vivid and stable and decide to take advantage of it for the visitor task. I ignore my dream family and head to the front. I notice my zener cards out, I decide to pull one since this is NOT a FA scenario. The right most card is askew so I pick that one - it's a nicely shaped and colored cross. I note it and head out.

I try to conjure a car in front of the garage. I'm pretty convinced I will find it ... but nothing. I leap in the air and flap. As soon as I do this, the light becomes several levels more intense, and it's suddenly morning. I fly around the neighborhood for a few minutes. At one point, I randomly bump into a tall evergreen and it swipes my bare feet. It feels very real and kinda interesting. I purposely do this a few more times with several other trees and bushes. I land.

I then see an attractive DC a house or two over. I fly over to her and in my haste, sort of tackle her. We're lying on someones front lawn at this point ... and just start going at it.



*************************

With the non-FA scenario, and the out of place card, I am very convinced I will pull the cross in RL. I walk over and that's exactly what I get.

@MB:  Well I'm trying anyway. I think I'm going to let the dog loose in my next lucid and let her find the guests.

My 1000th post. Weird Sex Lucid + Finding My First Car  :)


Weird Sex Lucid

I am in my home mid afternoon. The door rings and I walk over and find two teenagers. I realize I'm dreaming and it feels a little unstable like a WILD, though vivid. I open the door and notice the guy is realy skinny. I instinctively grab the guy by the shirt and toss him into the house and close the door. I walk over to the girl and we start making out  :angel:. It feels very real and she seems into it. We walk away to find some privacy. The best we can do is the garage. I lean her over the trunk of a car and yank her shorts down. I try to be my underwear down as well but they are incredibly tight and won't come off. I try pulling from the front, from the back, sucking in my stomach, no dice. Eventually I get them dowm to crotch level which is enough. I start doing the girl from behind. We're both enjoying it when I realize the scene has changed. I'm still doing her from behind, but we are on the couch in the TV room.

We continue when I realize my wife is there too. She's reading the paper. She gets up and walks over to us. She starts reading about a great vacation place in Europe that I need to take her to. Now I have a double problem, explaining to my wife why I'm screwing some miscellaneous DC on the couch, and why I have no interest in going to Europe. I just continue - but with the distraction we have somehow changed positions. We are both facing each other and on our side. It leaves little room for thrusting, more of a grinding thing.

I try to finish but wake (FA). It's dark and the clock says 7:11. I figure I must have fallen asleep after dinner and WILDed? But my pants are still at my ankles? Why is that? I wake for real.


My Old Dodge Charger

I'm in the parking lot of "house of schezwan". I somehow realize I'm dreaming. I vaguely remember accidently taking a few melatonin w/ my G/C by accident and figure it will keep the dream very stable (actually, the M thing was a previouso non-lucid). I am walking around when it dawns on me that I might be able to find my 1976 dodge charger here? I start looking. I find some cool cars including a mint condition GTO, but it's on a pedastil about 6 feet in the air. I'm about ready to give up when I see a pretty cool late 70's Monte Carlo. I figure it will have a big engine and is worth taking for a spin. I walk over. To my surprise, right next to it, is my old Dodge Charger:

(http://www.tar.hu/retrocars/dodge_charger_1976.jpg)

The car I see is exactly like my old one, black with a dented right front fender. I'm thrilled that I pulled this one off  :boogie:. I walk around, open the door and get into the back. I then wonder why the hell I got into the back. There is also a small tire hanging from the roof over the drivers chair? When I get out, the tire is now just some bunched up seat belt which I fix. The seat is way up front, so I adjust it to allow for a driver. I get into the front and close the door. Man were doors heavier back then. The interior color is slightly lighter than I remember it. I hope the key is there, and sure enough it is. I then remember the advanced task of the month. Cool, I wasn't even trying. I start the engine and it's unusually quite. I reach for the brake so I can put it into gear. I can't find it. I just pull the gear shift over to drive and start coasting. I'm now maneuvering through the lot, just coasting along. But where are the brake and accelerator? I think "what would Iadr do?". I try to visualize the car going faster. It doesn't really help. I push my leg down even further, hoping they are down there somewhere. I wake, and find myself extending my right leg.

WWYD if you were screwing some guy in front of Tom, or if you were driving your very first car wo/ a brake or accelerator. I will tell you from experience that both are a challenge.

This was a crazy ass dream ...


Fighting Sleestak + Trip to the Moon

I'm in a forrest with Marshall and Will from Land of the Lost. We are being pursued by Sleestak. We continue running and see a large orange half moon tent, with bold letttering on the side. We somehow intuitively know that the other humans have been found as well and we can't seek refuge here. Marshall and will jump off a cliff. The cliff is at a 70 degree angle and is covered with trees and bushes. They gently glide down. I figure I can do the same. I fall gently but deep into some vegitation. I continue falling, enter a hole in the earth and eventually fall past some horizontal copper piping and into an underground building. I'm all alone.

I hear a commotion down the hall. Enik is there and he is discussing that fact that the prisoners have Altrusion Grace. I then see some green Sleestak directing a number of children down the hall.  It's clear they need to be rescued. I find some more adults and we take our chance. The children are now alone in a large room and we run over to guide them out. The Sleestak see us from about 100 feet away and start firing their cross bows. Small sticks gently fall to the ground in our general direction. We don't seem to be in danger.

When we get out of the underground building, we find ourselves back on the mountainside, running away. Two more adults pull the same trick that Marshall and Will did. They jump off the cliff and fly down the mountainside. I follow and do the same. This time however, I realize I'm flying and hence dreaming. I enjoy the flight over the heavily vegitated cliff. When I reach the ground, I jump off it and back into the sky. I follow this pattern of softly landing on the ground, jumping and coasting through the air several times, just enjoying the beautiful scene. It's almost like a Costa Rican moutainside and rain forrest, but without the rain.

I'm getting some very powerful thrusts off the ground and it dawns on me that I might be able to make one massive push and break earths gravity. I hit the ground, squat and push with everything I have. I quickly shoot up and away from the ground, and finally the Earth. I quickly see the Earth disappear and I converge to the moon. When I get there, I get stuck in a VERY low orbit. I'm slowly circling the moon, about 300 feet off the ground. I look around and it's all quite real looking, with craters and so forth. I try to figure out how to land on the moon itself, but soon wake.

4 nights between G/C uses. Gave it a try 3 hours into my sleep cycle. Actually had some vibrations again.


Lame Zener Attempt

I have several opportunities to drift into my dream space during some head/neck vibrations. I succeed on one try and stand. I find that my feet are trapped by the pillow and couch cushion I had left on the floor. I try to reach down, pick them up and throw them aside. But I can't, I'm stuck. I also lose my balance in the process and fall to the ground. I'm not moving well, and decide to just crawl over to othe kitchen counter. I make it, reach up and feel for the cards. I grab the right most one.

By now however, my eye sight has fogged over too and I can't see a damn thing. This dream is going downhill fast. I try and succeed in seeing through what feels like closed eyelids. The card itself is meaningless. It has some instructions about feeding the dog scribbled on it. I give up and decide to go to the front door to see if I have any dream guests. I wake before getting there.


Bike Ride at 70 mph

I'm at a military training camp of some kind. I have an automatic rifle and I'm firing upon a large gate, along with several other gunners. I see someone through a slit on the other side of the gate firing back. It's amazing no one is getting hit since I am aiming right for the slit. The guy on the other side of the slit opens the gate and walks over to us. I continue firing right at him. No hit, no kill. I realize it's BVC from college. We chat briefly and he notices I'm out of ammo. I gestures to a pack I have on the floor with more clips. I load one and toss the pack on my back.

We are now in a room at the camp. It's clearly military in nature, but I'm somehow unclear about why I would be there. I start to think I'm here for training for my new job. I think to myself that the training better be brief, since I don't get paid by the hour, but rather the job. I sit at a table with a few other people. There's a woman there going on about how horny she is and how she realy needs some. I start thinking to myself that I can help her with that problem  :angel:. I decide to listen to the story and see if I can find an in. Just then, there is an alarm. No one seems to know what it is. I run outside and see a plane going down. It appears to be an experimental jet fighter. I crashes in a parking lot about 100 yards away, slowly skidding to a halt. A military bus intercepts it immediately and it's corded off. Several military police give me a dirty look like I shouldn't even be witnessing this. I go back inside.

We are offered dinner at this point and told we can leave anytime. I'm not interested in the pasta and sauce meal beinng served so I leave, having learned that the job training doesn't start till late Oct. I see a bicycle upon leaving the building. There is still a lot of stress in the air with the plane crash and I want to get away as quick as possible I hop on the bike and make a run for it. It's an old style 10 speed racing bike with thin wheels and the funky old style 10 speed handles. I'm not used to the handles anymore and find them cumbersome. The gears needs some adjusting and the shift by the pedal is grindinig against the chain a little. But it's functional.  I soon find myself driving through a small city, more like the peripheral burbs of a city.

There are many hills and I soon find that all the streets are brick paved. At about this time, I realize I'm dreaming, just based on the weird sequence of events. I pick up speed and go downhill. I brake at the intersection and get the desired effect, slowing for any traffic that might be headed from the cross road. I realize that all the ensuing streets seem to be downhill as well. I decide to use this to my advantage. I pick up as much speed as possible. I throw caution to the wind realizing nothing bad can happen anyway. I'm soon zipping along at what feels like 50, then 60, then perhaps 70 mph. The road soon levels out, but I finid that by positioning my body in different ways, I can maintain my top speed just fine. I swerve to avoid a few DC's  I soon wake.

I'm trying to get back to a nice steady state. I've been lucid every other day this month. Things are slowly settling in around me and I have more time to focus on dreaming which is good.

Per your comments in PJ's thread, I'm still waiting to find you two there. Give me a time and date, and I'll make sure I do my part  :). I have goodies  :paranoid:

Day 3 ADR + CES. Very good response, but hard time remembering some of the micro details of conversations, names, etc ...


Zener Pull Plus Finding Seeker, Almost ...

I am trying to doze on the couch when I get the sense my father is hunched over me watching me try to sleep. I roll over to peak but no one is there. It's hard to move and I realize I might have slipped into a dream. I soon have some vibrations, wait till they're done and try to get up. It's tough but I swing over and off the couch. I'm sure I'm dreaming.

I first head to the Zener cards. I pull the left most one and it's a square. I'm disappointed that square is not even a valid symbol. But on further inspection at a different angle, the corners disappear and it now looks like a cross. I decide to extract more info and pull the right card. It's also a square that turns into a cross. So clearly cross is the message and the first card I pulled was the left one. Moving on.

I head outside and purposely let our dog out as well. I am hoping she can find some visitors for me. She runs straight to the shed. As I am walking that way I get the strong urge to fly. I hop in the air and do some shallow flying toward my barking dog. I yell out "hey, is anyway there?". I get several responses. One is female though I don't know the voice. The other appears to be Seeker, though he is using his RL first name. I yell over to him several times and he responds but I can't quite place where he is. There are too many trees and bushes and he seems to be having trouble making it to the yard. I fly toward the voice but can't locate him. I soon wake.

****************

I pull the RL left card and it's a cross.


Patrick Swayze's Pissed at my Dog

I'm on the couch when I realize that Patrick Swayze has walked over, picked up my dog and removed her from the couch. Apparently he wants a spot and she was in his way. My dog is struggling to get out of his arms. I get up and push him away, very pissed that he would F with my dog. I go back on the couch and my dog is free. I then realize Patrick has hopped on the couch and he has layed his feet across my chest. I'm even more pissed this time. I also start to realize it may be a dream. For verification, I get up, grab one of his feet and turn it 360 degrees. I then quickly twist it another 180 degrees and hear a pop. He doesn't flinch though. OK - dreaming.

I head outside and start yelling to see if anyone can hear me. I walk over to the portal by the shed, fully expecting someone to be there. I see a figure emerge. It's a woman but I don't recognize her. I try to ask her a few questions like her name, and whether she is part of Mortal Mist. I don't get anything concrete. We start heading to the front yard. She goes off on some useless tangent and I try to change the subject. I offer something like "never mind that, let's talk about this hot little body you have" - putting my arm around her in the process. We walk to the garage. She spots a wheel barrel, leans over it and drops her pants. We start having sex.

After a while, I get too caught up in the sex thing and the scene has changed. I'm now having sex with my wife in what appears to be a 70's style finished basement. There are no windows and there's bad 70's wall panelling. Someone knocks on the door and my wife jumps up to answer it. She says we have to stop now. When I ask why, she gives some totally lame explaination. I'm really pissed, even though I know it's just a dream. I punch to door for effect. Then I punch it again. I wake.


More Strangers at the Portal

I on the couch trying to sleep. I decide to do a time check. The clock is faded and says 1:17 which is way too early. I get up and head to the cards. The left one is stilll flipped over from the previous RL check. I decide to try one more. I pull the middle card and it's an unfilled circle. I then realize the circle symbol is on both sides of the card. I figure that circle is more like star than squigly lines. I continue.

I head outside and againi yell to get the attention of anyone in ear shot. Another figure emerges from the portal, again a woman. She offers her name (which I forget now) and knows nothing of MM. I tire of the conversation and decide to carry on. When I turn to the back I realize it's become daytime. I leap in the air for some flying. For some reason though, I have trouble getting more than maybe 10 feet in the air. I try to pull myself mentally toward some high trees but it doesn't really work. My trying too hard becomes a distraction  and I wake.

I pull the middle card and it's a star.

Wandering around in the woods.  Interesting, but that is EXACTLY what I was doing the evening of 9/16 IRL.  Wandering around the woods in the dark yelling for my lost doggie.   :'(

I was worried though that a pack of Coyotes was all I going to attract.  Everytime I heard something, I wondered...Scruffy?,  a Squirrel?, or something about to rip my throat out.  

I've not made it to the BBQ yet.  Did have a wonderfully long and vivid LD this morning though.  Unfortunately, I wasted it ALL on flying, about 30 minutes worth.  I love flying.   (Say, anyone have a good flying smiley I can load?)

Coyotes won't bother you. Unless you stumble upon a mom with her cubs. Then they get really defensive. I learned that from experience. I backed off.

Hope you found your dog.

Hup-A/N. Pretty lame response. CO detector going off at 6:00 am due to a dying battery didn't help any  :mad:


Super Obvious Dream Sign

I'm up very early in the morning. I'm making some oatmeal, and thinking about my morning workout. I'm doing some calf raises to loosen them up. I'm not really in the mood to do calves and shoulders and start thinking about doing a few more raises and going back to bed .. perhaps doing shoulders later. My mom comes down and tells me that A can't sleep wo/ her night lite. I tell her I just bought new bulbs and that they are on top of the nightstand. I tell her this a few times, concerned that she doesn't now where to look.

I then realize we have a few guests. A guy, and a cute girl. The girl has short, slightly punky blond hair. I'm wondering what these people are doing in my house, but otherwise accept it. I then look across the street and notice a truck pull up to the neighbors house across the street. I look away then look back to the truck. It is now just a flat bed truck, and there are mannequins on the truck. Each mannequin looks like the female guest I have, and each is dressed in a really sexy nighty.

At this point, I just want to go back to sleep. I start telling my guests that they need to find someplace to sleep or otherwise be quite. I'll be sleeping on the couch. Just then, my mom comes down again. I get distracted for a moment. When I look again, the guy is in his underwear. My mom is totally naked. Her head is normal, but is bodies skin color is very dark. I look down and notice that she has what appears to be a penis. I bend down, and grab it to verify. Yep, mom has a penis  O_O. Crap! I've been dreaming all this time.

I'm so pissed at myself for not catching this sooner. I have no interest in these DC's and head straight for the backyard. I start to lose the dream. When I exit the house, I jump in the air to try to stabilize the scene and colors. It doesn't help. I start zig-zaging around in a black void and soon  wake.

CES induced. Lately, I just seem to slip into dreams with this technique and have what PJ denoted as "INRALD's".


Trying to Create a "Landmark"

I'm on the couch trying to doze, when I realize I don't feel quite right. I try to move and it's very difficult. I'm sure I'm dreaming. I swing off the couch and head to the porch. The dream is not very stable and I begin to lose it. I rub my hands together vigorously and that helps to some degree. I exit the porch and look around. I don't see anyone.

I then remember my promise to MB to create something noticable in the backyard so she can spot it. I crouch down and leap in the air. a few powerful flaps with my arms and I'm propelled several hundred feet in the air. My intent is to just hover a bit on the off chance another dreamer can spot me. I start to glide downwards but in a wide circular pattern that has me losing very little altitude per unit time. It's wonderfully relaxing. I wake by the time I get about half way back to the ground.


Office Maze + Cute Secretaires

Again, I find myself on the couch but pretty certain I've transitioned. The dream is not very stable and I get up and start touching things on route to the front door. By the time I've exited things are more clear and stable. I walk to the street looking for some activity. I see nothing. I get an urge (more common in my non-lucids) to get on all fours and run through the street like an animal. I do this for a minute or so until I see a car coming my way. I get up on my legs and get ready to intercept it. At the last moment I run into it, but only enough to have a collision with my arm. I'm expecting a heavy or painful impact. Instead, my arm just passes through the car like it's made of nothing - an absolute illusion.

I continue walking down the road when the dream becomes unstable. I start to lose it, but another scene start to materialize. I use my sense of touch to stabilize the new scene. I'm in an office building in a big room. There is a team of movers organizing some furniture and boxes. Each mover is an exact replica of the next. Each guy is bald, same face, with a decent physique and white tank top. There seems like nothing to be gained by hanging out here, so I exit the room and find the hallway.

The hallway is very sterile. White walls and bland, super clean dark carpeting. I try to find something interesting, but the hall seems to be an ongoing maze leading to no where. Finally, I spot a windowed office. I enter it and find 4 very hot DC's. Two are at rear or side of a big desk. Two are sitting on chairs around the periphery of the desk. I don't bother wasting any time here. I pick the most attractive gal, who is one of the girls sitting in front of the desk. I help her out of her pants and panties. I lift her onto the desk so she's seated but just hanging off the edge. We start doing it. The other girl behind me starts playing with my butt. I'm too caught up to really notice what the other two girls are doing at this point ... watching I suppose? I don't really care. This goes on for a minute or so before  I wake.

G/C night

Still Searching For Guests

I wake from a prolonged non-lucid. I lie still and focus my mental attention at my 3rd eye. I get some weak vibrations. Eventually, I can get them to oscillate consitently and feel myself rise from and fall back into my body. I get up and inspect the VCR time. It simply says "1". Dreaming.

I quickly head to the back door and exit. I forget to bring my dog though. When I get outside, it's pitch black and I get on hands and feet and crawl around some, feeling for landmarks like the edge of the patio. Within a minute, my eyes adjust and I can see OK. I get back up and walk around. I yell out "is anyone there"? But no response. I make my way over toward the shed. It's now very light out and I see a bunny. I remember my dream earlier where I heard MB's voice and ultimately saw a giraffe. Maybe the bunny represents MB in some sense? It doesn't seem frightened of me as it heads my way.

I walk closer to the bunny and say "Moonbeam, is that you?". This catches the bunny off guard and it hops away, which I suppose makes more sense than the bunny warming up to me. I'm now at a loss for what to do. I see my neighbor who lives SE of me. He's out and about doing some light chores. I never liked them too much and get the urge to start some trouble with this DC. But I choose against it. The dream de-stabilizes and  I wake.


Zener Pull + Some Cool Flying and Swimming

I wake from the previous lucid and I'm mindful enough to lie perfectly still. I soon get a series of vibrations, though not super powerful. I sit up, somewhat unclear if i've transitioned or not. I check the VCR clock which simply shows "6". That answers the question.

I'm a little less impulsive this time, and rememer to do the Zener card experiment. I walk over and pull the middle card. What I see is hard to describe. Imagine the star shape was made of play-doh, and someone were to use their hand to squash it and smear it clockwise a bit. That's what I see. A twisted and distorted star. I'm satisfied and continue.

I make my way to the front door and exit. It's very dark, and I again use my hands to feel for landmarks, like the edge of the euonomous bed. By the time I hit the street, it's sufficiently light to see. I get the urge to run and fly. I start running east. I see the moon, but I did that already. I get some speed and decide to jump when I see powerlines in my way. At the last moment I jump straight up the avoid the lines. I get about 20 feet in the air and level out on my back. I do some backstrokes to head west. But I get unusually good speed doing this. I pick up the pace and I'm soon zipping through the air at a good clip. I'm headed toward the lake.

Our lake has a run off from the main lake which is about 500 feet long and only about 2 feet deep. This is what I'm heading toward, the shallow portion. I over  shoot it then circle back around. I'm getting tired from pumping my arms and I can't maintain flight any longer. I fly over this shallow portion for another 20 feet or so, thinking that a swim would be nice, but realizing it just isn't deep enough. I wish I had a boat!

I let myself glide into the water. I get the last minute idea to land on my outstretched legs. Maybe I can float on my legs as if I were canoeing. This actually works perfectly. I'm now floating on my legs, gently paddling north bound. It's very peaceful, a nice early morning scene. I wonder if I can get to the deep water? Within another minute or so however, the dream destabilizes and I wake (FA).

I get up to check the cards. I quickly notice the left and middle cards turned over already. Cross, Star. This totally confuses me. Did someone F with the cards? Was I sleep walking? I then somehow imagine my dad came down and messed them up - how embarassing - he wouldn't understand this experiment at all (nor does he live with us). I'm totally baffled. I wake for real.

Well I've come to realize I may not find any guests at my house this month, while they are dreaming as well. Too bad.

But of course if you surprise me a year from now, that will make it even more interesting.

As far as the zener card thing, yes my results are way above chance. But as you well know, I've built this entire experiment around what I can do quite naturally, find myself lucid in my house. Did you happen to see the two most recent posts I made in my "Dream PSI Experiement" thread. This is all no coincidence. It's much like when I started to get lucid using CES. At first, I thought I was getting lucky. Now I'm like 58 for 62 tries. That's as good as G for me. LDing is so ripe for further discovery, which is why I'm having so much fun.

Another Zener Card Success + Some Very High Flying

I am trying to get back to sleep when I realize I might have already drifted off. I am very good at identifying that subtle perceptual difference. I sit up and notice the clock is malfunctioning. I also take in the scene. It is unusually real and stable. I marvel at how close everything seems to reality. I get up and head to the zener cards.

I have to fight a mild pulling sensation which seems to want to pull me back into the TV room. When I get to the cards, I choose the L card at the last moment. It has two horizontal squigly lines on it. The card choice is quite clear and I carry on.

When I get to the front door, I realize I should have imagined someone standing outside or perhaps a car in front of the garage. I didn't imagine either of these apriori and neither is there. But my dog starts barking and is very upset over something. I exit and leave her inside so as to not scare any guests. Turns out no one is there. I jog along the driveway to the street. I wonder to myself why I like to run so much in my lucids? I then hear something from a few hundred feet away over a loud speaker. It has something to do with "logging into your account now". I wonder where this is coming from? Did I leave a TV on IRL and the audio is bleeding into the dream?

I again feel a backwards pulling feeling. I crouch down and shoot up into the air in the direction of the pull. I get immediate altitude, perhaps 200-300 feet. The scene is more rural than I would have expected. The trees tend to obsure most of the ground level landmarks. I hover for a while taking in the scene and soon  wake.

********************************

I get up to pull the card. I get a sense of star (gut feeling) but I'm sure the squigly lines LD message is correct. I turn the L card and it's squigly lines - though running vertical. I turn the adjacent (middle) card and it's star.


Random House Guests

I wake from a rather prolonged non-lucid. I feel like it may have been a FA. I sit up and notice the clock is again blanked out. I head to the front. This time I am mindful to expect a guest at the door or perhaps the garage. I open the door and no one is there. But in fact, there is a car of people who just pulled into the driveway and parked in front of the garage. They are all talking to one another and exiting the car and don't notice me at first. When they do, the one woman is the only one who seems interested in me. The 3 guys just head to the front door.

I ask the woman what her name is and whether she's from MM. She only responds with "my name is Vegas". She doesn't acknowledge the MM question at all. I make a lame excuse about needing to show her something in the backyard. I take her by the hand and we head back there. We start fooling around a little and then she gives me some oral.

By now, the 3 guys come back this way. She and I are both startled and she stops. I then gesture to her to continue, since I seem to be over doing it in front of a crowd  :). I think everyone is caught off guard by the situation though. I soon wake.

Long unplanned WBTB + off the cuff lucid.


Showing Off in Front of the Class

I am at my old college in front of what was the geology building. I am admiring some new brick paver work that I don't recall. It's very tasteful and I admire the picturesque view.

At some point I have a large ball in my hand (about 20" wide) and I lean on it. I start to float. I slowly make my way into an adjacent building which seems less familiar. I find the main lecture hall and enter. The room has rows of seats that get progressively higher. I again lean on the ball (with my chest) and start to float. I finally realize I'm dreaming. What to do here? I figure I'll just show off a little. I float toward the ceiling. When I get there, I change hand positions on the ball so that I'm now hanging from the ball. I zoom left and right a little and everyone is quite interested in this and probably wondering how I'm doing it. I wake (FA).

I'm still kinda half lucid. I realize there is a can of club soda open and half consumed. I pick it up and drink it. It's warm but helps with my dry throat. I realize this can doesn't even exist in my house and that I'm definately still dreaming. I'm very thristy and finish the club soda and  soon wake.

G/C - 8 days from prev use. A little sleepless, but plenty of lucid time - probably forgot a good chunk of the experiences already.


Trying for the Pumpkin Patch

I find myself awake on the couch thinking I may be dreaming. I walk to the kitchen. For some reason I think to lie on the floor and try to float horizontally. This works, more or less. Definately dreaming. I wake (FA).

I quickly realize I'm still dreaming, just by the feel of things. I walk over to the Zener cards. I pull the R one. It's a fuzzed out lower case t with a dot on top? What the hell does that mean? I pull the middle card and it's squigly lines oriented vertically. I then realize there are two other cards to the right but not lined up. I touch the left card and it's very thin, not like the others. I'm a little confused by this all. I give up and head to the front door.

I exit and start feeling around. It's super dark. I figure I'll try to conjure a pumpkin patch next door. I trip over my own feet and have trouble getting up. It's too damn dark. I try to brighten the scene by imagining the sun coming up. This works very well. The sun is soon over the western horizen and it's daylight and very colorful out. I continue next door.

I see what appears to be a garden and large vines. I suppose that's where the pumkins are. But it's very bright and not at all "Halloween-ish". I decide to try to find my neighbor instead, since she was eyeing me bigtime when I was cutting the lawn a few weeks back  :o. I wlak behind the house. It looks nothing like the RL house. Very large, brickfaced wall. I hear someone using the door and exiting. It's two female DC's though neither looks like my neighbor. Hmmmm, one to play with and one to watch. I start dropping my pants. They sort of acknowldge me and get the intent, but continue walking in the yard. I realize my pants are on way to tight and have trouble getting them off. I wake.

*******************************************

I pull all the cards. I'm only confident about the middle one. It is in fact S-lines. The right one turned out to be cross which makes sense I guess. This was a hit for the one good mapping and FA based (maybe that's why things were so fowled up message wise).


Driving Really Fast

I'm in my Jeep dring south on Maple. I get the sense I may be dreaming. I use a little simple logic. The last thing I was doing was trying to sleep. OK - definately dreaming. I get reckless. I step on the gas and turn onto the adjacent road without bothering to look for oncoming traffic. I gun it, pushing the pedal to the floor.

Now of course my V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee is no sports car. It picks up speed but not much. I cruise through the intersection, swirve to avoid a car going to slow, and whip down the street some more. By the time I hit 60-70 mph, I wake (FA).

I get up and notice that the front door is open and a draft is coming in. Was I sleep walking previously? I don't think so. I head to the counter to see if the Zener cards are there. My daughters blocks are there instead. I must still be dreaming. I head upstairs to see what K is doing. Our daughter was in bed with us earlier, but I can probably  fix that. I head to our room and only find my wife. I drop my pants and hop in looking for a little action.

K is up for it, but wants a lot of foreplay first. Scratching, back-rubbing and so forth. You've got to be kidding? I try to wiggle a finger in but get rejected. I try to get her to sit up on me so she can at least work me manually while I scratch her a bit. No dice. This is way to much trouble. I can get this IRL. I wake.


College Gymnasium

I find myself in what appears to be a huge college gym. I girl walks by and catches my eye. She seems very familiar. I start to follow her. At about this time I realize I'm dreaming, just due to the scene discontinuity from where I know I am in reality.

I enter the main gym with hardwood floors. She enters a small room and closes the door. I imagine this room being a small break room. When I enter, that's exactly what it is. She is at the counter fixing some food. I put my arms around her she knows I'm there. I work off her pants and panties. I haven't even seen her face yet. I help her onto the floor. I work my pants off as well and get aroused. I make a last minute decision to aim a little higher  >:D. She's thrown off guard by this but not unreceptive. We start going at it very intensely.

The whole thing lasts for a good ten minutes or so. Multiple positions etc ... When I finally turn her over, she's much cuter and thinner than I expected. I can't get off to save my life though. I wake.

Change of Seasons Chest Cold Induced Lucid Dream (CoSCCILD) - i.e. I was constantly waking up all damn night.


Flying in Bayville Again

I'm in a house (my present day one if I recall) and somehow realize I'm dreaming. I decide to head outside to explore. When I open the door, the scene changes to the view outside our old house in NY. I instinctively jump and flap. I get about 20 feet in the air and start to fall. I bounce off the roof, kicking with everything I have and shoot westbound, gaining a little altitude again.

I get some nice momentum going but finally land on the ground again in Vista Court. I am about to try for some more flight when I see someone heading this way with their dog. I somehow think that flapping would be weird or embarrasing, so I choose to do a flip and try to spring off my hands instead. It doesn't work.

I non-chalantly walk past the guy and his dog, holding out my hand for the dog to greet me. They pass and I leap in the air one more time. I start flying around the neighborhood again. Since I'm travelling due west, I figure the jetty would be a nice target. But  I wake (or otherwise lose lucidity) before getting there.

Still a little sick and sleeping like crap. Did wake at 4:00 am and lock the goal of taking A for a flight.


Trying to Incubate the Intermediate Task

I find myself walking North bound on School St. It's a beautifully warm and sunny day. Instinctively I leap in the air, and quickly become lucid as a result. The flight is effortless. No flapping or kicking. I'm just using my mind to pull myself to various landmarks ahead and higher than me.

I lose altitude and land. I realize A is behind me, but the lucid is not super high level and I don't think to encourage her to try. I again run and jump with outstretched arms and glide up and into the trees. I do this one more time before losing  the dream and/or lucidity.

You don't appreciate how good you feel until you get really sick and your body is compromised. I'm pretty much back to normal now. So much better.

G/C after 4 day break. Interesting that I finally had a WILD again.


Back to the Jetty

I am having various hynagogic flashes and images and I figure I'm close. Rather than force it I just relax. Next I know, I find myself in full form climbing the stairs of our basement in the old NY house. I immediately recognize the scene and exit to the first floor.

I head outside and find the expected scene. I get the urge to fly toward the big jetty again. I take a running start and jump, quickly gaining altitude. I don't get extraordinarily high, but I do manage to get a nice glide going. I quickly get to my destination.

When I get there, the jetty has been extended toward the shore so that it's protecting a portion of the sea wall about 100 feet long. I land. I realize I have no shoes on, which really sucks given the terrain. I'm walking over some small pebbles, snails, muscles, etc ... I'm just taking my time, since it hurts in a very realistic sort of way. I get toward the end of the jetty when the swooshing sound of waves hitting the rocks and shore ceases. I find that odd. Why can't I hear anymore? The scene fades and I lose the dream.


Another Crack at the Intermediate Task

I'm on the couch trying to sleep again. But I realize I might already be dreaming. I sit up with some difficulty and try to view the VCR clock. It's blanked out and I'm certainly dreaming. I get the urge to see who's upstairs in bed  :angel:. I have someone in mind.

When I get there, my wife is up and she's complaining about some business complications she's having. I suggest to her that we fool around a little. All I can get from her is her foot against my crotch in a semi-playful sort of way. It isn't doing it for me though. I give up and go for plan B - flying w/ my daughter A.

I head to A's room but the house layout has changed. When I get to what would have been her room, there is an old man in bed. He looks very ill and is being attended to by a DC who I presume is his wife. She's also old and frail, and only about 2 feet tall. I ask them if the've seen my daughter but they haven't. I head downstairs. The stairs are more like my mother in laws house, as the layout of this home keeps changing. By the time I exit the house completely, I have again found myself outside our old NY house. Weird!

I figure I've got a shot at conjuring A and call out for her. I proceed to check the sides of the house but nothing. Rather than beat this to death, I figure I'll fly over to the old party rock. I jump and get a great deal of altitude right away. It's enough to get a great view of the long Island sound. It's windy and the water is very choppy. Instinctively, I start flying more like a seagull, arms outstretched, just hovering and gliding in the air with very little effort. The scene is so beautiful that I'm content to do this for a minute or two before finally waking.

G/C, 5 days since last use.


Flying with A  :)

I have a strong series of vibrations. When they stop I am sure I'm dreaming. I get up and head to the Zener cards. It's dark and the nightlite seems busted. I can't see a thing. I go to plan B.

I head to the front door and notice the bathroom light on upstairs. I yell "A, come on down, I'm going to take you flying around the neighborhood now ...". I repeat that basic message a few times. Finally I hear footsteps and it's my daughter. She comes down the stairs wearing a yellow one piece night suite. She is younger than IRL, perhaps 2ish. I take her by the hand and we head outside.

At first, I get over excited and we run to the adjacent yard. Then I realize that I haven't explained anything yet. I tell her to watch as I release her hand, flap and hover in mid air some. She seems to get the idea. It dawns on me though that it's a lot to expect for her to accomplish this straight off. Instead, I pick her up and hold her against my right chest. I tell her to hold on tight. I start kicking my legs in a powerful manner. We start to rise. We get about 20-30 feet in the air when I figure out how to do a few light manuevers, some dips and what not. She loves it. She's giggling, and holding on while we try a few different things. This lasts another minute or so before waking.


Restaurant Crashers (Literally)

I'm in a large van. I get the sense that everyone in the van is a superhero of some kind. The driver then morphs into a person with a dogs head. I'm not sure what superhero I am or what I can morph into. I fell a little confused.

We are driving through a crowded city and pull up to a store. Someone is dropped off. We continue. We then smash right into a restaurant and continue driving through the dining room area. It hits me that I'm dreaming. We exit, find another restaurant and do the same. At one point, the van side swipes a table that rams a guy into the wall, leaving an indentation of his body. I am totally amused by all this but not in control of anything per say. I wake.


Maybe I Picked the Wrong Girl?

I get the sense that I'm dreaming. I get up and notice the blanked out  VCR clock. I head to the zener cards. I turn on the nightlite but it's glowing only modestly. I feel for the right card. I can't make it out. There is something glowing on the fridge and I hold the card up to it. The glowing area is half a cross and it makes the card look like it contains the other half. Hmmm, cross. But that's a weird sign, the way the card only has half the message. I pull the left card and hold it to the light. This card is clearly squigly lines but two small sets of lines with white space in the middle. I am satisfied and continue.

I head out and get a running start. I jump when I hit the road and imagine myself soarinig higher and higher. It works wonderfully. I then spin and do a leisurely backstroke through the air. I fly north for a minute or so and then descend. When I do, it's daytime and I'm am in a neighborhood reminiscent of Brooklyn with some old brownstone buildings. There's a block party going on and many people are lounging around. I see two very attractive women and head over. One has enormous boobs and I focus
