Had to write down my dreams again in the PM as I didn’t have time to log all of them in the morning. It’s actually very time consuming to keep an active dream journal. I’m not really writing it for myself, rather for those interested in just seeing what type of dream experiences present themselves and how I try to work through the drama and experiences. Dreams really are a type of story telling, like midnight movies when you sleep. I had a lot more to write down in the morning so what I can only offer is what I remember before I go to bed tonight.
Dream 1: Party at Peters
In this dream, I am walking late at night on a road. There is a group of people walking past me, a nice mixture of guys and girls. Some are carrying cases of beer. I say Hi as they pass by and towards the end of the group there is a person there named Peter who tells me he is having a party and wanted me to come hang out.
I agree and walk with the group to his house. When in side, I sit in the kitchen at the kitchen table and have a beer. Peter wants to have my phone number so he passes me his cell phone. It’s not a full screen smart phone, rather it’s a QWERTY keyboard phone, slim like and the buttons are very small. I could see all the letters and numbers clearly. The LED screen was very small, but still readable. I told him it was really time for an upgrade because this phone is so out dated. It was hard trying to enter in my phone number to his contact list. Took me a while to get it right with the small key pad but finally I managed and passed it back to him.
I asked him if he’s still going to the Gym and he told me about 1 hour every day. I thought I really need to get back to the gym because I’m certainly not making that time with how busy I’ve been.
Dream 2: Chocolates
In this dream, I am obsessing about chocolate and am going room to room in a house looking for chocolate stashes in each person bedrooms. It’s like I am a child again and in one room, the bed has drawers at the base. I open it and find some but try to just sneak little pieces as to not alert the person of my chocolate thievery. Have to admit, I’ve eaten far better dream chocolate. One that I ate had some fruit-jelly filling in it and I admit although I seemed to like it in the dream, I wouldn’t like it in real life at all.
Some of the chocolates were clearly Christmas chocolate as I ate a small solid chocolate Santa clause at one point.
Dream 3: Movie theater
There is this two level movie-theater that I am at. For some reason, and I think it’s Britney Spears or some other famous blond pop-star. She is trying to see if she can collect movie posters. We go up stairs and start looking for some, after a while of searching I find where a bunch are stored. They are all rolled up with elastic bands holding them together. She unrolls a few and loves what she sees.
There is a young girl who is happy to see this singer, and she has a small Barbie doll and a mermaid doll. Britney and her sit down and start to play. They seem really happy and content. I leave them with a stack of posters and have to go to the washroom. To get to the washroom, I have to walk pass an Usher who wants my ticket for the movie. I don’t have one for whatever reasons but explain to the person I am just using the washroom and he lets me thought the checkpoint.
The washroom has a person standing in the stall, I wait for them to leave and for some reason, I cannot close the stall door because it’s to wide and the stall itself is two narrow which I do find weird but obviously not enough to cause a reality-check.
Dream 4: Calm Ocean Crazy Thoughts
This was a very metaphorical dream, what made it interesting is that the dream presented a type of 2D overlay view of information. The idea behind the dream was communication between two entities through dreams. The dream tried to convey that communication was like ripples in an ocean, and the more chaotic a persons mind and thoughts were, the more interference would ripple out towards the other participant.
It showed that a clear mind calm and focused would be able to communicate far better than a mind afflicted with too much noise. The animation in the dream would show a sphere as the target of the communication and between the target was a very smooth surface that would bubble or show jagged waves carrying inforation between these two points.
What made the dream even more interesting is that in the 2D view, it had a series of flow-charts illustrating different psychological issues due to different neural trypamine responses. The flow chart would list a trypamine, then branch into different effects of various intensities and those would branch of into different behaviours and responses. Depending on a persons tolerance, they would have a much less psychotic response than more sensative people.
I could follow a path and it would connect to various types of warped dream content, a person full of fear and hallucinating very psychotic thought or a person under this influence being very clam and serine. I liked how the dream created these visual metaphors and doubt any of it has any merit in reality but still, was very technical, very detailed and interesting to observe the information.
Dream 5: Stranger in the House
This was one of the more random kind of dreams where a stranger wanders into your house uninvited. What started off as me standing in a driveway, this strange person walks up the driveway into my home (not my real home in real-life just some dream drama home). Seeing that he is just going inside I call out to him asking him who he is and what business he has going into the house.
He didn’t really have a reply other then he looked at me and just walked in the house. I run up the driveway and confront him inside the house. I tell him that he has to leave, that he’s not welcome in my home. But he tells me he wants to search all the rooms and he’s looking for someone. I tell him I’d search the rooms but he has to wait outside.
He tries to push me aside then I start to threaten him, I tell him if he doesn’t leave I will be force to make him leave and I start standing my ground. I warn him that I’ll use any force necessary to protect my home. He grabs my hand, so I lock his arm and hyper-extend it and he cries out. He grabs his arm and is very upset with me, now he’s leaving.
I feel bad having to do that but it could have been worse for him ( or at least I thought ). I was worried for my family and was trying to temper my response based on how he was reacting. When he leaves, he changes to an older man and now has a son. He complains that they can’t find his son’s shoes but doesn’t want to deal with me so they both walk off.
Dream 6: Lucid Dream
This was more of a semi-lucid dream. What I mean is that I knew full well I was dreaming, made a successful reality-check but the dream drama still managed to advert my intention away from what my dream goal was. How the dream did it was two other people started to claim that they were lucid dreaming also which perked my attention (a clever distraction really). Apparently they were both friends and both very excited about knowing they were in a dream.
Then one friend ended up wandering off and the other turned to me for help to find him. I told him don’t try to look around for this person in the dream setting rather calm down and feel where this person is within himself. I follow my advice and find his friend by scanning for his identity. I grab the person by the arm and we kind of do a fast blink or teleport to his friends location.
Reunited I told them it’s better to hold on to an arm or hand just to keep stable and not get lost in the dream. We stood on some yard overlooking a city, there was beautiful trees, houses, nicely kept lawns. The sky was blue. The person we found turned to me, with tears in his eyes. “Thank-you for helping me become lucid, this is the most incredible experience. I cannot believe this is real. That we can even do this. It’s amazing.” he’s very grateful and that makes me feel good.
“Dreams are amazing, you do this everynight. Everyone does and look at what they are missing out on if they don’t participate in their dreams.” and I point at the beautiful scenery. “It might not be our physical reality, but you cannot tell the difference once your are here.”.
They just stand there in awe of the dream. I don’t last too much longer because it’s time to wake up.
