sleep paralysis?

Monday, June 29 2015

I become conscious while lying face-down, almost suffocated by the pillow my head is on. I try to turn my head to the side, but discover that I can't move my head. I can't move the rest of my body, either.  In the dream, I'm a fifty-ish Asian woman wearing a bright pastel blue dress and I have black, coiffed hair. It doesn't occur to me that this is not who I am in real life. In fact, I feel like I AM this woman completely--it's not even in the back of my mind that I&

recurring dream: regressing to childhood religion

Technique: Other
Monday, May 25 2015

This dream is recurring more than I think it should. It starts out where a group of dream friends and I are watching a horror movie where the devil is "infecting" the characters with some terrible kind of a destructive state of mind. However, as the dream progresses, we become the characters in the movie and are running for our lives. At one point we're even driving down a mountain road in the dark, but the road keeps breaking up. At some trailer complex, we run into the tr

A fish with trumpet-shaped ear lobes swims by.   There's some kind of voice-over of how the ear lobes evolved.

Saturday, May 9 2015

In a dream in which I'm flying through the woods with other people, I finally realize this can't be real life and I'm in a dream. I say to the group I'm flying with, "Let's go to Oz!" We land on the path (NOT a yellow brick road) and a very happy but sickly looking young girl says to me, "Please sign your name on my wrist, I want an autograph!" She's absolutely beaming as I try to write my name in red pen on her wrist. I'm troubled, though, by t

I'm trying to fall asleep in an uncomfortable position on my left side, but I can feel my heart pounding against the mattress. Amazinglingly enough, I start to feel myself go out of body, starting with my right astral hand moving back and forth in the air, while my physical right hand remains against my side. What I don't notice is that the setting has changed. I'm sleeping in the same position in the living room of the house we lived in when I was in first and second grade. It wa

moving in slow motion (illus.)

Wednesday, April 29 2015

We're playing soccer in a field at night. Everyone is really good at it except for me (that's true in real life, too, I suck at sports). What I don't realize is that the reason I feel like I'm moving in slow motion and can't play right is because I'm dreaming.  The ball lands right in front of me and I make a pitiful attempt to kick it. But even as I'm struggling to just draw my foot back for the kick, someone else rushes in and steals it. This makes me feel v

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

Monday, July 22 2013

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
