I'm getting out of my body and I know I'm in a dream. It's in some church. While excited to be finally having an OBE dream again, I'm thinking this isn't as good as moving around my body in real life, instead it’s a little futile because I'm just in a dream landscape that isn't real. This makes me try to think of a way to make my dream affect real life. (wake up, record, fall back asleep) I'm playing an extremely elaborate role-playing game that’s on a virtual reality set. I witnes

The family grew up with and I head into the area where the Kennedy family is having a party, but we’re diverted around that. Beyond that, we’re find our bikes and begin riding. But there’s a motorbike without a driver going by itself. I wonder how that’s possible … is it a Google bike? But it doesn’t make me lucid. (wake up, record, fall back to sleep) I’m pulling a dog through a strong current, while sitting on a motorcycle that’s completely

A dream in which I’ve suffered some kind of brain damage and can’t remember huge chunks of my life. But then it gets better, I start remembering (this was a long dream so I’ve forgotten many details). Mom is there and she shows me some of my old paintings, which I remember (however they were dream memory paintings and weren’t familiar to me once I woke up). My dream journal that I kept on paper for years is in there, too. But I don’t want anyone to see THAT, becau

A very scary dream where there’s a child serial killer that they’re trying to find, and the case is unsolved. But then I’m working with the police and I seem to be able to see into the killer’s mind, and it’s very clear that there’s a part of his mind that he’s usually not aware of at all, the killer part. I’m kind of amazed at the psychology of how this works, and wake up, startled and wondering if that’s how insanity in general works. I

This could be a technique for enhancing dreams, although it’s only worked for me one night. I fell asleep in the living room, but when I woke up a couple of hours later I was really thirsty from snoring because I slept on my back and I didn’t remember any dreams. So I went back to sleep in my bedroom. I find myself in an argument with D, an acquaintance, telling him to slow down. He’s driving like a maniac and keeps pressing the gas pedal harder, even though we’re off

I don’t recognize that I’m in a strange house and bed, in fact it completely feels like my own. My astral leg passes right through my blanket and I realize I’m about to have an OBE. Carefully I roll out of bed onto the floor, the rest of my body passing right through the blanket. I get up and walk through “my” door into the hallway. The walls have carpet on them, which again (dream) memory tells me is correct. I then pass through the door to the outside where it

I’m living at home with Mom and Dad and I don’t want to move out. I feel a sense of security being there that I’m afraid I won’t have when I go out on my own (that was very true years ago when I first got my own apartment). I realize that I still haven’t learned to branch out socially from my immediate family (this is still true, in large part, in real life for me). I think about dating, and how I really should start trying to do it again. (wake up, record, fall

I’m at the B___ Church from the 1970s. I’m looking for forgiveness for all the stupid things I’ve done in my life, but the strange thing is that the quest is not even religious in any way. I just want to FORGET the things and move on with my life. It’s like just about forgetting. I realize there are still things in Mom and Dad’s possession, though, that I want to throw away for the same reason—reminders of stupid things I did long ago. I wake up.

Tuesday, June 11 2013

I keep realizing in some (forgotten) dream setting that I haven’t quite figured out how to be happy. (shift) I’m trimming a roof with a saw, and it’s easy. I feel an emotion and it’s been so long, it takes me a moment to identify it. I’ve known it before, too, but it’s been many years. It’s happy self-confidence. It’s going along with what I’m doing in the dream, which is trimming the roof with a skil saw to create a gable—with gre

I’m in Europe looking at D___ College, settling into my new room. (wake up, record, fall back to sleep) We’re at a store. I realize I’m cured of my anosmia, because my symptom of not being able to smell has gone away. (wake up, record, fall back to sleep) An end-time scenario where we’re collecting very specific information about how to find the exact places where we need to go to go to heaven. I’m lying in the bed while the others are plotting out on a map th
