I had a dream that there was another war, literally, WWIII. It was all the same countries from WWII but it was the Commonwealth and most of Europe against the US. It was absolutely terrifying because Canada(which is my home) was being bombed day in and day out.
I can't remember most of the dream, but it was so odd and interesting and terrifying at the same time.
Last night I had a dream where I was all the way across town and needed to get a burrito at this very specific burrito place. So as I was going over to the burrito place, suddenly I became Spider-Man and was swinging from building to building until I landed on this corporate business building where I eavesdropped on the CEOs and other senior workers settling on some sort of deal. But then as they made to leave the office room, I became Peter Parker and skateboarded away like I'm surfing in the ocean. The once I exit the building, I'm skateboarding off to the burrito place.
Here's my reply to a similar thread a while back, I must have posted it about 4 times now I hate doing that so sorry if anyone has already seen it:I used to have these amazing lucid dreams as a child, I used to visit this floating garden land in the sky which was basically a massive rough circle of earth, topped with loads of flowers and in the middle was a huge lake with ducks, creatures and huge waterfalls coming off the sides as well as one bench by itself.
But there was also a land below this which consisted of floating islands in a vast endless sea. Each island had different people and places that did different things and in my mind I could say "yeah I wanna go there!!" or "Nah I didnt like that place" and I could make anything happen within this world.
I could even close my eyes and force myself to wake up if I ended up on one of the scary islands. I used to love this dream, but unfortunately as I got older I seem to have lost the ability to lucid dream and instead I just sleep really deeply and it's been a long time since ive had one of my awesome abstract dreams, or rather since ive remembered having it as far as I understand how dreams work.
Id love to draw that world though....or make a series based on it.
hmmm :3 i had a dream that it was the end of the world and my gym class was taken to this weird kindergarten toy wear house. and so my gym teacher (. . . .:3) had set up games and stuff for us to do. i was just hangin around in the corner and this guy my friend likes (who's a bit of an ass) kept trying to touch me and stuff so i was all "NO!" and all of a sudden there was like this menu for a video game and it said "this dream is going nowhere important or of your liking. click 'Continue' to keep going nowhere, or click 'New path' to change your dream." and so i supose i clicked new path because all of a sudden my teacher was in lurve with me and was holding me and everything but nodody seemed to notice. and then i was getting really agitated because my arms were uncomfortable. so i let go and then all of a sudden i was running with my friend down this path in the woods. it was real sunny out and we weren't allowed to turn back. we stoped to catch our breath and then i felt all of these centipedes are crawling down my back. and i tunr to my friend and go "ariana, take 'em off!" and she just stood there. so i woke up half dreamy about the first half and disgusted with the second. ugghhh i could still feel 'em.
Absolute nutter of a dream last night -- my laptop was ruined by a waterfall of blue toilet water, like Tidy Bowl cleaner, but the water came up from a vent in the floor.
Big beard John Lennon and me got into a fight on an airplane.
and he punched my balls.
This is reeeally long, I know, but it's the most extensive lucid dream I've ever had in my life and it still amazes me to this day that I was able to remember it all. I apologize for the grammar.
"I am staying with my cousins in a hotel downtown, it is late at night and we are ready to go to bed, I look at my cell phone as I enter to hotel room, I have a ton of messages from people responding to a call that I sent out but I don’t want to bother with those right now, the hotel room is two-stories, on the bottom level, it is just a bedroom with a big bed but soon we discover that there’s nothing separating the room from the lobby and people are constantly walking through the room to get somewhere, my cousin and I decide to go upstairs, there is a room upstairs that looks exactly like my bedroom, we are talking, my cousin turns into a person I know from school for a while, he has a pad of paper and is asking me questions about myself to get to know me, I talk about myself being very self-aware and self-conscious and how those things define me as a person, then I get to talking about dreams, I glance at my hand, my fingers are weird, it is like they are constantly moving, they are impossible to count, I get a slight prick of awareness that I am dreaming, I walk swiftly to the bathroom to get some more light, I flick the light switch but it doesn’t work, I realize that I am dreaming, [LUCIDITY], I get really excited and the dream begins to fade, I spin around for a second then remember that touching the surroundings helps ground you in your dream, I crouch down and touch the carpet with my left hand and the wall with my right, this pulls me back into the dream, my eyes are opened really wide, I turn to my cousin and start asking him questions but he isn’t very interesting, I step back into the center of the room and try to think of something to do, I try to stick my finger through my hand, but it doesn’t work for some reason [probably because I don’t believe that it will work], I then jump up and float in mid-air, it feels so good, I am being pulled up slightly just by thinking about it, I let myself down and leave the room, I go out to the top of the stairs, I am thinking “I just have to believe that I can fly” then I think “I can fly,” I jump and float down the stairs, downstairs, in between the hotel room and the lobby, there is a girl standing with a group of girls, she is really pretty, I grab her gently by the shoulders and stop her from leaving, I say “Wait, wait, wait, don’t leave”, her friends pull us apart, they are angry at me for some reason, they walk away, I say goodbye, I walk through the lobby a little bit and I see a man in a black suit and bowling hat, I decide that I’m going to try to control his mind, I tell him to walk to a certain place that I point to, I repeat the command several times, but he doesn’t obey me, I keep assuring myself that I am in control but the dream is so realistic that I can’t convince myself, at a couple of points in the dream, I think that I might actually be in real life, I walk out of double doors into the dark street, it is a huge city with buildings towering over me, it is beginning to rain, it is still night time, I decide I want to fly, I jump up into the air and float, I test things out, I flap my arms and that seems to propel me upward a little bit, I wave my legs like I’m swimming and that moves me a little faster, I lean forward and extend my arms, this propels me forward, I lean back and it stops me, I straighten my body completely like I am diving into a pool and look up and this propels me upward very fast, I shoot into the sky above the city but below the clouds, I make myself stop moving up and I just float there, thousands of feet above the city, I am sort of afraid of falling and I wonder if I will start to fall when I stop moving up but I don’t, after hovering there for a while, I quickly glide back down to the ground like I am on a free-fall, I slow down right before I reach the ground and gently touch down, I am outside of the city a little bit now, it is raining harder, I tell myself that I can make it stop raining, I try but it continues to rain, I try harder, I say “It’s sunny, stop raining,” I hear on a distant radio, the weather forecast say “clear sunny skies are ahead in the forecast,” but I don’t see any immediate results, I am on a road next to a field and a house, I walk over near the house and I see a girl, I talk to her, I lead her inside the nearby house, we are going to climb up into a bed that is in the wall, she lifts the white door to the bed and it is filthy inside, it is like the inside of an old refrigerator, right then, her mom comes down the hall and asks what’s going on, [Lucidity is fading slightly now], I try to explain but she breaks us up and to be honest, at this point, I don’t really want to see the girl anymore, I walk with the mom outside, she mentions her other daughters and I quickly ask where they are, she says that they are around, she asks if I have a cell phone, I pull mine out and she says that she’ll call me if she sees any of them, [on my cell phone where it normally says “Are you dreaming?” it just has my number], I thank her and leave, it has stopped raining, I jump or float up to a ledge on a building and I watch people walk by on the streets below, I am desperately trying to think of something to do and hold onto my lucidity, I think that the dream has gone on so long that I’ll probably forget some of it, I think about Spider-Man and I try shooting webs out of my wrists, it works, I shoot the webs at random people walking by and drag them around, I jump down from the building and go into a department store, I am walking down the brightly lit hallway of the store when I wake up."
My dreams fade away so quickly. :( If I ever want to remember them I have to take notes or try to memorize them before it's too late. They are more random, and sometimes absurd, than fantastic and colorful.
And yesterday I was taking a nap and had a dream (coincidentally, I was thinking about posting a thread about it - but too late :P).
I dreamed I was in an old large library... and I was sitting in a waiting room, waiting for a job interview. There were other people there as well, of every age, waiting for the same interview.
There was a girl, seeming to be in her early teens, who kept cheerfully talking about herself.. the books she liked to read and the art she made. She was handing everyone papers with her drawings, but they were very childish, like stick people, you know? But the people kept making stunned comments about how talented she was. They kept talking, then they started discussing about individualism. They reached the consensus that it was bad, because it made people too withdrawn and into themselves, keeping them oblivious to the world, and thus less experienced. Then, I said something contrary, something in the lines of "people with no sense of individualism don't have a good sense of themselves", to which all of them looked at me with contempt. And.. that was it. o_O
I have the weirdest short dreams when I'm half asleep. There was one time I was on the subway, in the verge of falling asleep, and I dreamed a little cartoon man was outside my window making train-like noises and screaming at me... he looked like the man in "The Scream" picture.
One time, when I was taking a nap on my lunch break at work, I dreamed my coworker (who's a short, petite woman) was running after me with a big katana and screaming "heeeeyyaaaa!". xD hahaha
I also remember dreaming that I was having a philosophical conversation with some supernatural beings... and right this one which seems to be the coolest, I can't remember well. :(
I have a lot of dreams that are recurring - like my tooth falling out, or I am in my pajamas and went to school dressed like that, and everybody is staring at me, but only then do I realize that I am not properly dressed, or I have too much too study and tomorrow is an oral exam day (we had those in highschool), and I just set my mind on reading the textbook. When I usually dream about holding a small female child, someone from my family or I gets usually sick that day or very soon, it is always like that despite the fact that I actually like small female children, but how much coincidental can it get - always I get sick or someone I love gets sick.
Warning = these are disturbing and if you are easily disturbed do not read.
I had three dreams that I will remember as long as I am alive: strange and absurd.
1) I am alone in a snow desert - a flat field of some kind where there is absolutely nothing just whiteness of couple of inches of snow that completely covers the ground. There are no signs, and there are no people. I am lost and seeking some kind of a road sign, but then I find a very narrow orange road, but wait is not a usual road although it leads somewhere and even curves as small pathways do sometimes, but it is made of human roasted flesh neatly packed to make that pathway, and I can see arms, bones, and legs. I needed a lot of reassurance to sleep alone after this dream. I think I was 12 or 13 when I dreamed it.
2) I do not have a transport, and a shiny black horse-drawn Victorian type of a carriage stops by. The horses are also black and shiny. Then, somebody’s hand opens a door, I enter the carriage, which is creepily decorated with red velvet upholstery, and there is a figure of a man dressed in a Victorian suit, and he also has some kind of long black cloak that completely covers him. He is quiet and I am quiet, but I want to get out because I realize this man is a devil. Most of the dream, I am seeking a way to escape, but at the end the carriage stops, and I get out.
3) I am sleeping, but I think I am awake, there is a complete darkness in my dream, there is nothing except a voice which is not a female or male voice and does not have any emotion in it. It is telling me that some religious event is not true and that it is God (the voice), but I do not believe it, and I am feeling very scared because now voice is next to my ear, and I can feel it. But there is a lot of emptiness about it. I am having trouble to get awake, because some strange force is holding me down, I want to scream, but I cannot. Then I actually awake, and I am still feeling that same force is holding me down from moving; I am scared out of my mind. Now, I am shaking and not moving or calling someone to help me because I am terrified. I get a feeling that this is not a natural voice, and I pray. After I prayed, I felt a lot better. For some time, I thought that something intruded in my sleep. I was wondering about whether such experience is some kind of sleep paralysis, but at 3 am at night when I was actually already asleep for 4 hours? I never experienced it again. I had it when I first started reading Bible, I was around 24 years old.
I used to have a lot of sleep paralysis experiences before falling into sleep when I was younger 19-21. I felt something did not allow me to move, or I am floating, or some kind of strange energy is flowing though my body, tut never these expereinces happened in the middle of the night when I am already asleep for quite some time.
