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

Someone delivers plants to our office — I’ve been demoted to an office job on Memorial Drive in the Cambridge area in a rundown building. The plants come with candles and gauzy curtains for our windows. As I’m getting ready to leave I notice the curtains have caught on fire. Already, I can feel smoky air going in my lungs. I tell someone and find a fire extinguisher, but by now the flames are big on my desk. Nevertheless, we put it out and run outside. I tell him we were in d

I have magical powers (forgotten). I’m driving and am in kind of denial that I’m losing them. We end up in the river, but it’s still working enough that I tell the passengers how about if I do “something magical RIGHT NOW to save us,” which I do … but it just barely hoists the car out of the river. (wake up, record, fall back to sleep) I heal someone who has atrophied limbs by putting my hands on his arms. They swell up with new muscle tissue. Dr. D____ a

A dream about a dream-character guy named T___ who I’m interested in. But the dream devolved to about how I’m doing all these things to drive him away that I’m not even aware of. Finally, I begin to see what I’m doing wrong and try to change them, and then things start to go better. The dream oddly ends up with he and I and some other guy in a three-way relationship, which I’m not happy about (IRL I’d be VERY unhappy with that kind of arrangement).  T

  My mother’s in the hospital (IRL she passed away in 2007). I tell her that she’s suffering from “volume overload” (also called CHF), and that we have to start an IV line to drain some of the excess fluid away. Dad is there. We can see the fluid overload in her face, because it’s puffy. She’s bewildered and afraid and I try to comfort her with a hug (precognitive: a patient I took care of today -- Monday -- had this same problem and her face showed the

Monday, June 4 2012

I figure out a new technique to put myself back into a dream. I make my eyes pass in front of just one word or one object at a time that’s appearing in my mind’s eye, and it works. Three times I try this I go into long dreams, one of which had flying in it. The dreams were so long I can only remember the parts around when I woke up. One time I end up with an old co-worker and his wife in their living room, and they kick me out, saying I’m invading the privacy of their house w

Some guy went to gay bars before he killed someone. He threw a man over a balcony and killed him, but then he didn’t remember it, even though he remembered hurting two other people (precognitive: someone fell off a 25-foot cliff in my town today – I’ll find out more about the story in tomorrow’s paper). (wake up, record, fall back to sleep) I’m flying through valleys and realize that there is no way to achieve personal change except when friends tell you off. Be
