Daytime in a very vivid yet hazy environment, I find myself in a small playing field where there
are some soccer goal posts set up with an unfamiliar characterless goalkeeper stood in front
guarding the goal. I am practicing taking shots at the goal and am attempting to kick the ball in
such a way as to make it swerve in the air.
One of my shots hits the top of the crossbar and momentarily bounces back out from the goal, as the
ball hits the ground I will it with the power of my thoughts to bounce back into the goal mouth to
score a goal, which it does.
I continue to practice taking shots with one of the kicks sending the ball drifting off wildly up
into the air and up over a grassy embankment and fence into what looks like a graveyard. I realise
that my younger sister has been stood behind me watching me taking shots at the goal and when she
sees the ball land in the cemetery she tells me that she doesn’t want to go and retrieve it as she
I don’t feel at all afraid so I climb up the grass embankment and clamber over the fence into the
graveyard which now looks more like an orchard with many apple trees. I see the ball which looks
more like a small beach ball with red and silver Celtic like markings on its surface, the ball is
wedged in a tree so go over to retrieve it.
I climb the tree to get the ball and see that there is an unfamiliar man sat quietly in the
branches, he watches me silently with a smile on his face as I get my ball and then climb back down
out of the tree.
As I walk back to the playing field where the goal, goalkeeper and my sister are I see that I am
being shadowed by a stern looking nun who walks parallel with me to my left some distance away.
Thoughts: Frustratingly I just haven’t had the time to spend writing up my dreams as much as I would have liked to hence the ones below are very brief, saying that even from their brief descriptions they are still quite obvious with recurring symbolism such as relieving oneself in Dream 1 being linked to the drainage in Dream 3 and the theme of tiredness as shown in Dream 4. The football part of the above dream was something of a half hearted attempt at trying to become lucid I think, although I didn’t have total lucid control I did feel as if I was trying to control of influence the football by making it swerve in the direction I wanted it to go.
Dream 1: The long wee – A dream in which I am in a toilet taking an unusually long wee, an unfamiliar dream character stands over my shoulder chatting as I relieve myself. I feel an incredible amount of relief and happiness at being able to go to the toilet like this.
Dream 2: The Coca-Cola magnate – A dream about a Victorian Coca-Cola magnate in some sort of alternate reality. The mogul’s factory is up the top of a steep hill, in pursuit of wealth and monopolising of the Cola market the man neglects his family in a terrible way.
Dream 3: Drainage in the barn – Daytime in a huge barn and a labourer something like a cross between a farmer and a plumber helps me to install some drainage pipes into the floor of the immense hanger.
Dream 4: Roses on the pillow – In an expansive and billowing heavenly white curtained environment I come across a serene and tranquil bedroom. Upon the pillow of the freshly made bed are laid some beautiful deep rich orange coloured roses, the scene is welcoming and I feel invited by an unseen presence to lay down upon the bed and fall asleep.

It is daytime and I find myself walking around a very large wild field on a hill, it looks like a part of the land at my great grandmother’s house where she had an orchard with apple trees. I walk through the long tufts of grass with my wife silently and just in one another’s company, the atmosphere of stillness and silence is just like that of an empty church.
Suddenly from out of a small copse of trees in the distance up on the hill I see a large bird of prey swoop down and land very close to my wife on the branch of a small tree. I look very lucidly at the bird and am chilled to the core to see that it is actually some kind of harpy with a quasi human monkey like face but which still retains the eerie flat faced gaze of an owl.
My wife leans forward to take a closer look at the monstrous chimera but I warn her not to get her face too close to that of the nightmarish bird as it would be sure to claw and peck at her face cruelly. I pull my wife away from the chilling creature and continue to traipse through the tangle of long grass which weighs heavy on my feet, as I walk I’m horrified to see the bloody disembodied tennis ball sized heads of tiny miniature lions strewn around the orchard.
It would appear that the tiny dwarf lions who lived in the orchard have been attacked by a flock of these harpies who spitefully bite and snip the lions heads off with their beaks just for the pleasure of it.
Thoughts: The amount of dreams and waking life incidents regarding birds has been quite uncanny for
me just lately, it reminds me of a similarly eerie childhood experience that involved an owl too.
Dream 1: Cats & kittens – Daytime and I find myself walking to buy some kind of grains of wheat from
a fish & chip shop, the grains are served moist rolled up in a newspaper much like chips would be. I
walk with a woman to the hot snack shop that would appear to be part my wife and part my younger
sister. After visiting and lucidly sitting in at the fish & chip shop an unfamiliar dream friend gives us a lift
back to my Nan’s house in her little white car, the car is quite sporty and unusual in appearance with
many innovative and unorthodox features, apparently this lady’s father owns a garage and is able to do
any repairs that need doing on her car, it seems like the perfect arrangement. We finally arrive at my
Nan’s house and as the lady says goodbye she hands us some little kittens to keep. I go into my Nan’s
kitchen and take a seat at the table besides my great uncle, he explains to me that he has had to
change a component on his car to do with fuel flow and his car is still not working after having replaced
the part twice, he is really angry and uses the ‘F’ word which really shocks me as he’s not like that at all
in waking (in the dream the shock of this detail seemed to jolt some lucidity into me) he looks at me as
if the problem is some how my fault. I notice that the kittens we were given have started to pester my
Nan and hurt her legs, she falls or rather slides off her chair and becomes hysterical and immobile on
the floor so I try to lift her back onto the chair. I decide to take the kittens outside so they won’t be a
nuisance, I spend a while playing with the kittens but soon notice another larger fully grown grey cat
spitefully mauling one of the much smaller kittens in a bush, I go over to intervene and separate them
and to stop the larger cat from bullying the much smaller one.
Dream 2: Aerial views – Daytime and I go to a supermarket with my wife I’m told to wait inside near
the entrance and not to enter so that is what I do, as I wait for a long time whilst my wife does her
shopping I see a familiar sister-in-law make her way over to a check out to join the queue. The sister-
in-law sees me and acknowledges me with a smile and a wink, I suddenly feel very self conscious as
this smile and wink seemed to convey something more than just recognition of a family member. After
the shopping my wife and I go back home (part dream home, part familiar) where we have heated
discussion about how an aerial should be fitted or installed which will be linked to a television set that
my wife plans to watch whilst she does some exercises in a gym like room (this doesn’t reflect any
waking life drama or room). We can’t see eye to eye about how to install the aerial but the crux of my
argument seems to be that the co-ax (I used this term distinctly in reference to co-axial cable, this
shortening may have been significant as I used it a number of times within the dream) is that the cable
should be uninterrupted and one long piece whereas my wife seems to think that it will be fine to use
many pieces of cable all linked together with many small male and female sockets and fittings. Another
dispute starts to take place about a strange kind of Artex like plaster work which covers the walls in
messy swirls in the room where my wife plans to do her exercises, I touch the wall and huge chunks of
the faux finish comes away in my hands revealing the rough masonry beneath, this causes a bit of a
row. A further matter crops up concerning what looks like an unusual set of glass table wear which is
displayed on a shelf, one of the unusual globe shaped pieces of glass has a red stain or mark in it and
my wife thinks that we have been misled with the item and wants to take it back for a refund or
replacement, the strange items looks a little like the kind of thing which might be used in a chemistry
laboratory. We get into a car with me as the passenger and head off to the glass factory to take the
soiled item back, at some point we head down a steep hill which leads into a tunnel, this descent is
accompanied by an ominous feeling.
