Lucid Intent? Yes Lucid Technique: MILD
This dream has been viewed 4210 times.Daytime and I find myself walking through the countryside near to my childhood hometown. From within the dream this countryside also happens to be Kenya (dream logic).
I am accompanied by a small group of unfamiliar people who are out on some kind of adventure safari challenge. We are being led by some kind of tall lean wise guiding African tribal man who is taking us to visit each of the challenges, these tasks have a feel of the ‘Labours of Hercules’ about them.
We are taken to a snow capped mountain where two of the men from our group compete with one another to ski and snowboard down the mountain the quickest. The younger snowboarder immediately fails by falling over and comes tumbling down the mountainside. The other dapper gent who has a rather rugged poker face swiftly skis down the mountain without a hitch.
I’m very impressed by the way the older man skied down the mountain and wish to try it for myself, I ask the tall guide if I can try that but he says “No” adding that I have to stay down at the base of the mountain and replace the broken window of our small touring mini-bus.
Additional Comments:Thoughts: This dream might be linked to my reflections of my past and also about childhood and adulthood, the changing of the windscreen might suggest that I perhaps need to deal with my perspectives or ways of seeing before I am able to cope with the big challenges as represented by the mountain?
Dream 1: Sceptic in the library – Daytime and the rock group Pink Floyd have released a record which I feel I simply must buy in fact everyone in this particular dream construct seems impelled to go out and buy this record. I eventually manage to locate a copy of the record which has a slightly psychedelic front cover reminiscent to those of another band called the Moody Blues, I purchase the record and then head off to an unfamiliar library. I meet many people at the library who seem to share a common interest with me we all lay down on the floor and get into sleeping bags just as the psychic sceptic James Randi enters the library to give some kind of lecture on library tickets.
Dream 2: The dead sunflower – I am at my Nan’s house in her sitting room my Nan holds some kind of pot or dish which I am placing dead flowers and stems into the ambiance is sombre but also amicable. I pick up the very large head of a dead dried sunflower and go to place it into the pot. I have the urge to break the sunflower head in half and in doing so I release a cloud of green mould spores. My Nan looks at me with a kind of ‘hey ho’ expression and a shrug and a smile as if to say it’s just the way of life.
Dream 3: The cinema at work – Daytime and I find myself at a place which feels like my work but which looks a bit like a past 6th form college I went to, I walk down into a large hall or auditorium where I see some familiar work colleagues all milling about not far from where I can see a huge cinema screen. I can also see some workmen laying down some new floor tiles inside the auditorium the job looks laborious and like quite hard work. The work colleagues look very excited at the prospect of the cinemas first showing, everyone tells me that it will be Star Wars which will be the first showing. When the French colleagues say the words “Star Wars” I find the accent and pronunciation very sweet but surprisingly when I say the words “Star Wars” I also say it with a French accent which surprises me quite a lot.
