Dream Journal Entry June 11th, 2014

Dream 1: Hotel with Brother

This is a nice long dream where I am with my brother, we are staying in a nice hotel. The lobby has a large fountain in the center. My brother and I go to some restaurant and dinner and drinks, we are catching up on old times. I tell him work is good, that my daughter is growing up fast. He tells me about his family. There is a bit of a memory lapse but I do recall driving back and forth to the hotel and going up to the room a couple of time.

Dream 2: Father’s House

This dream has even more amnesia, all I can remember is that I am at my Dad’s place with my daughter and we a visiting.

Dream 3: The Big Toad

This dream is likely linked to dream 2, but due to the amnesia it’s hard to know where the break point was. There’s more clarity in this one as I am at a pond and there are some children playing. There are turtles swimming in the water. I see this really large bull-frog and catch it. The thing is the size of a large cat, fat and heavy. I put it down on the ground and the children are all amazed by it. My daughter is there, she loves the frog and wants to keep it as a pet. I tell her he’s a wild animal and we have to let him go.

It was some great dream exaggeration on the frog. The turtles however were fairly tiny, likely fit in the palm of my hand.

Dream 4: Guitar Tuning

I am at a coffee shop in Penticton known as Fibonacci’s. I have my guitar there with someone else who is tuning his guitar. We tune our guitars together. The dream was very clear on sound and also the guitar tuner on the guitar would indicate red/green as we tuned up the systems. He told me he bought his guitar for a steal of a price, $150.00. He thought mine was nicer but then suspected I paid a fortune for mine. We had some Red plastic cups with beer in them. While we were tuning someone had set down a cup near mine.

I ended up grabbing that cup and drinking from it, it had the sharp needle tip from a surgical needle at the bottom. I suspected who ever used it was doing heroin and was disgusted at taking a drink from the cup. It ruined my evening and I got up, packed up my guitar and left.

Dream 5: Star Wars

This is a very fun Star Wars inspired dream where I am a Jedi equipped with lightsaber and force powers like force jump. I am with Yoda and we are infiltrating this dark sithlord’s fortress. We force jump over a wall, and abuse the force to leap up onto a ledge with a open window. Yoda and I split up and I am walking stealthy. There are creatures that are large, almost as if they are made of stone skin with magma veins and dressed in clothing you would expect from the Star Wars Universe.

I end up making the wrong turn down a corridor and come face-to-face with the Sith we are to kill. He’s a bad ass looking dude over 9 feet tall probably 4 foot wide shoulders and not very happy to see me. He does something so quick, I cannot respond the next thing I know, I am dead.

But the dream resets like a game loading from a save point. I am back force jumping with Yoda and this time I am aware of what will happen next so I plan my next stratigy accordingly once we breach the building. This time, I take more effort in hiding in dark corners, waiting for people to pass. I use the force to move objects against a wall to create a noise distraction to get through to the next corridor.

I’m close to where the person was in the first attempt, so I move down a flight of stairs knowing he will pass by soon. The dream starts to morph a bit as this person finds me hiding under the stairs near a concrete wall and shugs it off. I wait for a while to see if he sounds an alarm and nothing happens. Soon some normal human looking people join me and the dream shifts so that it’s now an underpass with a fire.

There are two heavy set ladies who each have poisonous snakes for pets. They are talking about how best to care for them. One does something strange by holding the snakes head and blowing on it’s mouth to get it to open up and show it’s fangs. This also causes the snake to start to shapeshift and morph. It turns into a cross between a cat and a dog with two sharp snake fangs along with other large canine/cat teeth.

The thing hisses at me and tries to bite me. The lady tries to encourage me that the snake won’t bite and that I am safe. I have to use my hand the deflect its attempts while I ask her if it’s poisonous. She tells me it’s deadly if bitten. The stupid thing keeps trying to get a bite, but I control the side of it’s face with an open palm pressed against the base of it’s jaw. Finally, I push it forward then soccor kick the thing and the lady is all upset that I kicked her pet like a soccor ball.

I leave to go find this person I am supposed to assassinate, and the stairs revert the path back inside a building. However, this time it’s a large theater at the end of the corridor with large wooden doors closed as people are watching. I walk along the hall confused as to where this person could be and why the world was now so different. The hall opened up to a lobby.

There were some people wearing masks and wearing tuxedos, smoking on long black cigarette holders with a white tip where the smoke was placed. They had on white gloves and looked down on me as I walked past. I end up deciding to use the bathroom and walk through the lobby until I find one. I wake up shortly after that and make notes in my journal regarding these dreams.

Second Sleep Dreams.

It was 7:00am after my summaries were written and the alarm was set for 8:00am. I decide to see if I can have a lucid dream as second sleeps often present a good opportunity for success.

Dream 6: BBQ

As I fall asleep, I watch the dream form around me. It starts off like a translucent hologram before it pops into a full simulation. I am with my friend Todd and he is having a BBQ. He has some steak that he’s grilling and we are drinking beer. I lose lucidity when the dream hits and although very vivid and real in how it’s simulated, the dream reality locks me in to thinking that I am really there at my friends place.

We are talking about projects we are working on and I tell him that I’ve been working very hard at being conscious during sleep. That I am tired of being locked in to waking life knowing there is just so much more reality to be had during sleep. He tells me that it’s a big waste of time and pointless. I argue that it’s actually the most important thing I can be doing because dreaming yeilds so much new experiences and fun events that it only adds content to my life. I tell him that maybe he has too much negativity and his attitude prevents him from enjoying the rich creative content that dreaming provides. Why not just have extra reality when you sleep.

He doesn’t buy it and decides we need to drink more beer. While he cooks the steak I pound back a beer then another. We have steak and drink more beer and talk about world events and politics. Time passes, more beer is consumed and I am starting to get drunk. Towards the end of the dream, I am completely smashed and don’t want to drive my car. I think also that I have to go to work but then realize that I am dreaming and that the effects of alcohol will instantly pass when I wake up, and there will be no hang-over or adverse side effects. This makes me happy so I drink even more beer not concerning myself with the negative effects of alcohol.

Dream 7: Work Party

The dream shifts and I am at a party with my work continuing the drinking, this time it’s rum and coke. My boss is there and many people from work. I realize that I have to go home because I needed to freshen up. I drive home, have a shower. There is this woman there visiting my mom. She is elated that she has beaten cancer and tells us how happy she is with her new lease on life.

I invite her to come with me to the party. She’s not sure if she want to go. Instead, she ends up kissing me. We end up lying down cuddling. She lies partly on top of me and I stroke my hand along her back. I can feel the silky smooth skin on her back, everything feels very real. She has alot of realism including body heat and again had this not been a dream, it would easily pass as a normal day in waking reality in terms of resolution and detail.

After a while of being together, I tell her I have to go back to the party as people were expecting me there. She decides to come and we drive back to the party. People were wondering where I left too. My boss was happy I was back and buys me a drink. I walk around the party socializing and having fun. This woman is at my side the whole time.

Dream 8: More Jedi Adventures

The dream shifts back into the Jedi game world which is fun. Suddenly I am back having force powers and a red lightsaber this time. Instead of being stealthy, I have the lightsaber out and I am attacking these shadow like figures cutting them down as I move to the same downstairs area of the last dream. I see myself in a full length mirror, I look like Darth Maul wearing all black with horns on my head and face colored in black and red. I stop and look at myself, it looks really cool.

I flip the lightsaber around and it falls on the ground, feeling stupid and clumsy for dropping it I pick it back up. There is a shelf full of items and I start to loot the shelf. It’s very much like a video-game except in first-person virtual dream reality. My inventory fills up and I am unable to loot more items from the shelf. There is a woman there (likely the woman in this dream) and she is scared of how I look and runs away.

I walk back up the stairs and see the corpses of these shadow people that I previously hacked down. I leave the building and the dream shifts into another one.

Dream 9: Psychic Investigator

I go to a parking lot where I have a rusty old truck, it’s brown with rust and paint spots warn out. I have to drive to go meet this psychic investigator who wants to examine some items that I had apparently altered using dream control. I have a briefcase full of these items.

When I arrive to the meeting place there is another lady there who also has the same ability. We are comparing notes on how we are doing these strange things such as changing objects in dreams which later effects the same objects in waking life (in this case… still the dream).

My items all have symbols an marks etched into their surfaces. The investigator examines a cup that has been altered and is fascinated by the way the marks have impacted the glass. He wants to examine them under an electron microscope and I sign a waver allowing him to take these items and preform some experiments on them.
