I’ve just rented a brick apartment down south. I’m satisfied I’ll be nearby Mom and Dad and able to take care of them (forgetting that IRL Mom has passed away). I have a remarkable OBE dream where I sit up in bed, put my legs over the side, and stand up right out of my body. This keeps happening over and over again, but I don’t notice that the bedroom is completely unfamiliar to me (until after I wake up). I walk through a few walls during the OBEs. A very powerful

An electronic voice whines, “Here are the best chocolates you’ve ever tasted, there’s one for everyone.” (shift) I go into a fantastic, cohesive dream in which I’m passing through all kinds of things, included walls and metallic busts of famous people’s heads. There’s no resistance whatsoever as I zip right through many materials. (another shift) I hear the words, “casda sanda,” which I somehow understand to mean is “the sound

I’m lucid in a dream, standing before a mirror, and I suddenly get an idea in my head that if you roll your eyes around in a dream that something amazing will happen. I try it… …but I only wake up. Falling back asleep right into another lucid dream, I wonder if I can make my dreams more cohesive, for this one is not. There’s sand stretched out before me, but I can see the individual grains are just sort of like blobs that someone drew with a pencil. I focus on

I’m in a dream where all the dream characters are calling me names and even striking me. I don’t want to descend to their level, but I finally get defensive and start yelling back at them. This causes them to double their attacks. Exasperated, I fly away from them at a very high speed. But I can’t stop flying, and I don’t slow down either. Aware that I’m dreaming, I’m surprised that my dreaming mind is still producing detailed scenery, even though I can onl

kind of a gross "Deep Space Nine" dream

Thursday, May 12 2016

I was in an operating room on Deep Space Nine, the star station on the Star Trek spinoff of the same name. On the show, there were some people who had a parasitic mole-like creature inside of them called a "symbiont." In the dream, I was watching them purposely implant a symbiont inside of a person: I probably shouldn't have illustrated it here, because it's gross, but I've tried to recreate what I saw that made me recoil and instantly wake up.

Saturday, May 7 2016

I'm lucid in a dream and suddenly get the idea to pass through as many walls as I can. My premise is that the more walls I slide through, the more likely I'll be to pass into another dimension. The setting is a large, primitively-built house; but as I start passing through its walls, the rooms begin to change. Finally I pass through one wall and see this: It looks like I'm speeding along so fast that everything passing by me is a blur. I turn my head and do see another wall, t

lovers' lane

Thursday, December 24 2015

Thursday, December 24, 2015 6:31 AM Going down a river…we get to a vortex where the water is moving powerfully like a giant cylinder. It looks dangerous, but I step into it anyway. The force isn't that strong. There are parasitic centipede-worms, though, and I worry they'll burrow into the skin of my feet. Then I notice dozens of jumper cables corroded in the water with rusted pliers locked onto the clips. They're flapping around in the maelstrom. I pick one up and look

Wednesday, August 26 2015

I'm watching a movie in my dream. It's about mannequins that come to life at night when everyone's asleep; although it's not exactly like this Twilight Zone episode, "After Hours": It's more like the mannequins have a very strict social order and they're never seen moving around by human beings. (I can't remember too much of it after this point.) They're charged with helping humans out, but completely anonymously. They're actually a little

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

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
