Basically we're each going to take a part of one of our dreams and mash it together into one big story. Ex: I'll take the landscape from one of my dreams and then the next person will take something from their dreams and that will be the next part of the story. If we wake up because of death, being scared, mind rape, ect. We start a new one.

Here we go.

This is a catch-all thread for miscellaneous dreams.

Drop your dreams that don't fit anywhere else in /yume/ here. They can be any type of dream about anything; lucid dreams, moody dreams, crazy dreams, fetish dreams, even trips/hallucinations, ANYTHING that doesn't need its own thread, post it here.

This way /yume/ won't be cluttered up with threads that never get responded to, and it'll be way easier and simpler for people to post their dreams since they won't have to start a new thread every single time; I want to hear more dreams from all of you and I encourage you to post them here no matter how short they are, and no matter how insignificant you think they are.

I think of myself as someone who's totally not spiritual, very sceptical of the supernatural, so it feels dumb to ask but… has anyone tried dream-related tricks? I suppose I'm asking for actual magic. Like has anyone tried contacting someone else through dreams? How did it turn out? Have you attempted to use dreams for any other effect in real life? Asking because I have a friend who has nothing but mundane dreams about real life or 'in underwear in public' scenarios that make them feel anxious/self-conscious, but mine are basically an isekai fan's wet dream/god-mode sandbox and I want this to rub off on them. I tried to arrange us to go to sleep at the same time and we would try to 'call' each other but our NEET body clocks are never synched.
I suppose it's not possible otherwise it would be a known phenomenon in human history.

Just last night I revisited the same place twice for the first time. I was walking around in a very dark place, I think I could see pillars and ruined buildings around me, but not much else, when it suddenly opened up to a shallow marsh underneath a moonlit sky that I had seen only a couple of nights before.

I've always wanted a place like YN's Nexus, though. There are dream characters that I've had some painful goodbyes with who I'd like to see again. By now I've probably forgotten most of them, as this was long before I started keeping a journal. I'm hopeless at dream incubation though, my dreams are just so random.

Do you guys have persistent realms? Places you like to go back to? If so, how do you do it?

I keep going back to this hilly landscape dream. You can read about it at >>2517 . I don’t think it’s a dream hub for me, despit how frequent it is, but if i can somehow control myself while imside, I might just be able to find something.


FUCK, so many typos. keyboard a shit, phonefagging at the moment. G-g-g—GOMENASAI!


So even when lucid, you have no control over your body? Though if you manage to move around more freely, I’d try talking to someone, as DCs can sometimes have interesting or meaningful things to say about a dream.


Well, it’s moreso I can move freely, but my movementsstill speed up against my will. Attempting to negate the effect by dream abilities just flat out doesn’t work. It always ends with me jumping too high and falling to the ground.


I've found that sleeping after you've woken up (and possibly repeating this process) can lead to you being in the same place.
Just last night I dreamed of a small, cobble-stone paved town in which I went down a manhole into a large underground lake. In the middle of the lake was a ladder leading down further to a sort of wild-west town. I woke up, went back to sleep, and I was back in the cobblestone-paved town, except I decided to enter a restaurant. From there I went up a staircase and found two girls standing motionless in a dark room who, aside from having discolorations, looked a lot like me.

Does anyone else have exploding head syndrome? It started actually when I was first attempting lucid dreaming a few months back. It's a scary as hell wake up, sometimes it hurts my head.

I've had a couple of EHS attacks before falling asleep. Twice was someone screaming in my ear, once, a trumpet blast, and once, a chainsaw revving. Each time it was incredibly loud, and left me with headaches and insomnia due to fear.


File: 1380908359797.gif (367.85 KB, 320x180, EHS.gif)

Anyone know how to prevent this? Many times I try to have a WILD it sounds like a jet is taking off in the room or going full throttle on a snowmobile. It only lasts for a few seconds but it's painfully loud and there are bright flashes, often a feeling of falling through a tunnel of light or static. My heart races full speed and it usually wakes me up into a panic attack or causes the lucid dream to only last a few seconds. I've become avoidant of using the WILD technique.


The closest thing I've had was the sense that something like a massive bowling ball was coming at my head, and this was at the end of sleep. There was the ominous, fearful feeling with it, and some noise, but it wasn't loud, and it was more like being attacked than exploding.


That's kinda the same what happens to me every time I start to dream lucid. It's like a firery explosion inside of my heart which is giving me extreme panic while it blows me up into awakeness.


I've actually had EHS iterations I've been thankful for, because they were during a class I was close to dozing off in.

A recent dream I had.

So there is this person who is living in our house (IRL) and she has a son. In my dream, the son died in some freak accident. We had the funeral and everything. Then a few days later, he was standing in our front hallway. We all thought he was a ghost, but it turns out his mom did black magic on him. When he dies, she can use a strand of his hair to resurrect him. I thought "Okay, But hopefully he won't die again soon

But he kept dying almost every other day! Finally, everybody was put through such emotional torment, that i screamed "I can't take this anymore!" to wake me up.

When I woke up, I found that I was Physically, Mentally, and emotionally exhausted. I just kinda sat there, with my eyes wide awake. I haven't been able to look at the kid with out getting emotional about the dream.

Has anybody else had any dreams that have put a toll on them?

It was the Jeepers Creeper, but a little less humanoid. Nothing especially imaginative.
That movie scared the shit out of me when I first saw it.

The baby bouncing part was literally like a cartoon, lol.
It also was the moment I knew SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG while dreaming, because I sensed or knew or whatever that the baby was basically getting smashed and bones were breaking and so on.

It looked stupid and it felt awful.

The part that scared me the most and still makes me worrisome is "You will never see your mother and father again"

I still get really sad when I think about that part.


I had a range of very morbid and goreful dreams a couple of months ago. Here's the one I remember best:

I'm on the rooftop of a very big castle and a strange black shadow-being with yellow eyes and strong armor flew above me. It streched out his hand and forced me to obey to his commands or else he'll kill me. I agreed willingfully. He gave me one single knife with a short blade and said I should kill everyone who was standing outside the castle with this knife.
I ran outside the castle and there was a giant crowd of people circling it. The shadow-being controlled their minds so they all walked slowly to me without showing any kind of resistance. I took my knife and vigorously cutted and killed every single person that walked towards me and created a bloodbath on my way. I felt nothing at all, I did it like a robot. After there were only like 10 people left there was one little girl, begging for me to stop and I just lifted her up with one arm, made some extra cuts on her arms and legs to torture her and then threw her away like a piece of trash. After I finished killing everyone, I woke up.

I never did any harm to any kind person in my entire life, especially children. I don't have a clue where all these dreams (There were a lot of other dreams like that too) come from. I woke up completely exhausted and filled with guilt and self-loathing.

I don’t know what significance this dream has, maybe some dream connoisseurs can tell me, I guess.
Anyways, tangent aside, let me cut to the chase.
There’s this reoccurring dream I’ve been having since I was a kid.
I can’t pin down exactly when it started, I think it started when I was about 13. At first, it was omce, and then not again for about a year at a time. Then, it was about once every other month or so. Now it’s been happening almost once a week and it’s starting to concern me.
Every time it’s the exact same setting, starting the same way. The only thing that differs is my actions, which ultimately lead to the same conclusion.

Here’s what happens:
I wake up in a field, under a sizable tree. The time of day differs, but its usually morning/evening. The treeline is far in the distance, the subtle hills rolling through the landscape. There’s mountains far on the horizon ahead, and 2 train tracks run parallel through the clearing.

Then, I get up. No matter how long I try to stay down, I always get up.
As I walk, I’m slightly faster than usual. Similarly, I jump a little higher, too.
But I slowly get faster and faster. No matter how hard I try to slow down, I nearly break into a sprint every time I move. Each time I jump, I jump higher and higher. Eventually I start jumping higher and faster than would ever be possible. It gets harder to withstand the landing of each jump. And eventually, I jump too high, soaring into the air.
Then I fall, speeding towards the ground with no way to stop.
And when I hit the ground, I wake up, usually with a start, sweating a little. The adrenaline of being so close to death lingers.
You’d think I’d become desensitized to the experience if it happens this often, but…

I know some of you have them. Describe them here.

I can fly, or more accurately, 'float'. Basically, when I'm lucid dreaming, the ability to float is controlled my my mind like I'm flexing a muscle or something, and I can 'pull' myself up as if the ceiling is magnetic. If I 'pull' too hard, I slam into the ceiling and bounce off of it, so I have to kind of balance it out, pull hard enough to keep me suspended in the air but not so hard that I hit the ceiling. The hardest part is moving forward, I either swim in the air or kind of 'latch on' to something in the distance to pull myself towards it, but again, I have to make sure I don't pull to hard or else I'll slam into it. Sometimes I just float forward and balance myself to keep from touching the floor or ceiling. Flying in dreams is difficult to master but it's really fun once you get the hang of it.

Has anyone ever used their super powers for accomplishing something in your dream? I used to race across my dream-modified house.


I'm powerless in my dreams 99% of the time, but last night I had a cool ability to teleport to some preset locations, plus a skill similar to the Mark and Recall combo in Morrowind (memorize a location and teleport back to it, respectively). I did not even notice these powers, I used them liberally and withought thought, instinctively, as though they were my natural abilities. But thinking back to it, that was pretty cool.

That was a pretty unusual dream. I was running in the park and through my town on a warm summer day, and people were laughing at me as I passed because I was wearing pyjama pants, a thick winter jacket and a plaid, and was running barefoot. Strangely, I did not mind at all (I normally would). I accepted being an oddity and continued doing what I love doing (running is the best). I teleported around a bit to run through some of the nicer parts of the town. I was not lucid - I hardly ever am in my dreams - so I guess I subconsciously feel more in control of my life in general.


Last night I had a dream where I could fly. I distinctly remember thinking 'how is this possible, is this a dream?', yet not actually realizing that it was. When I woke up later I felt kind of stupid for not becoming lucid but getting sucked into the dream and really believing I could fly.

When flying in dreams it tends to be some form of floating that requires concentration and effort. Actual flying (over a landscape like a bird/plane) usually isn't me doing it, but me being taken along for a ride by another entity.


>wake up power
Usually I have a "wake up" power, if things are getting too much I reject it and stop sleeping. I don't have to be fully lucid, many times I'm not. Sometimes it's as easy as wondering when play time is over, other times (usually in nightmares) I'll have to wish for 'reality' to fuck off so hard I'll eject myself waking life.
It's more like… I'm a balloon. Or there's a balloon in my torso. I'd be positioned like a cat that's being picked up, slightly on all fours because the 'float node' in my waist would fuck up my center of gravity. Controlling my movement is pretty much like OP's version of flight. I feel better using it indoors or around structures because drifting off into the sky into infinity is scary.
Exactly what it is. No gimmicks, no limit, pure timestop. It's the scariest, invasive thing when something breaks free when I didn't allow that. I've never taken people with me so it's only been me and the monsters. Sometimes I just have to flex my hand but other times I pause by opening TESV's console.
Other stuff that's not strictly 'dreaming':
>Abusing the "wake up" power to go right back to sleep, 'rerolling' for a better dream
>Choosing what to dream by thinking about it as I drift off. E.G, chuuni-level 'daydream' in bed, fall asleep and get a whole dream about shooting beams at kaiju or whatever.

I tend to “decay” my dreams.
My presence tends to slowly cause reality to deteriorate at times, and weapons seem to cut through the fabric of reality itself.
The one problem is that I almost never go lucid, and when I do i don’t stay lucid. This is because for some stupid reason I’m still bound by dream logic when I’m lucid, so I just go back to conforming to the plot.

Does anyone have any dreams they remember distinctly from their childhood?

OP had a dream where he traveled the world collecting really messed up and scary versions of Pokemon.

This is a good thread

Once I had a dream about watching tv all day. Yeah… All the surreal stuff would be happening on the screen, but I could always look around and see I was really on the couch and safe in "reality". Nothing in the room was distorted or off, just the things on the tv

I wanted to post in this thread for the longest time so I'm going to do it now. Dreams are my greatest artistic inspiration for many years so I would love to share.

The earliest dream I can remember involved me playing with wooden toys in my aunt's house, the roof then flies away revealing a firey red earth vortex sky with meteors & volcanoes shooting out everywhere. This is unusual to me since I almost never see my aunt even back then. Another extremely early dream of mine involved a white staircase in a very ghostly, barren room with lighting similar to the picture attached to this post.

Some other distinct ones included me surfing on telephone wires only to fall down at what looked like the entrance to a maze made of hedges, a visible green monster is slowly approaching me & I can't move, it doesn't walk far at all before the dream ends thankfully. Last one I'll share involved me exploring a blood forest outside my house & the moon was replaced with a red face, it might sound like a nightmare, but it was soothing to me.


How do you utilize those dreams artistically?


They directly or significantly help inspire everything from animations, music, writing, painting, really anything I do.


i had this dream about a statue of cid the sloth after i saw ice age for the first time. it was in a run-down mall, and my mom was taking me to the garden store that was part of it. idk what malls are like for yall's areas, but where i grew up there was a mall with lots of sculptures everywhere, which i think is where my kid brain got the concept. anyways, this cid statue comes to life and beats my mom to death with a coffee mug while i have to sit back and watch, and that was the point where i woke up.

still probably the weirdest dream i ever had and it literally caused me to have a fear of sloths. i even had a panic attack at the zoo when i was around 9-10 because there was a sloth exhibit. everyone laughs at me for it cause the fuckers still creep me out

Hello, /yume/.

I seem to have been having a reccuring theme in my dreams, which is they almost always happen under ground.
Not a specific location underground, but just below the surface.
For example, underground military bunker, underground storage facility, underground floors of my former school(which dont exist),
underground mall floors, long wide underground concrete corridors, and a few more which i cant currently recall.

What does this mean? Why underground?


File: 1519676040449.png (106.82 KB, 700x988, chara.png)

Dreams are often influenced by your real life surroundings. You've probably watched/played/read/saw something containing an underground building recently. Or you just live in a basement.

It could also be some association of yours.
To give an example, in one period of my life I would constantly draw a particular cartoon character because of her nice and simple design.
In a dream totally unrelated to this, I was a stalker that, in the dream's narrative, kept numerous sketches of the woman he was obsessed with. As a detective came and uncovered the creepy sketchbook, my mind understood the "female that I draw a lot" part and filled it with drawings of the aforementioned character, replacing the woman from the story (who was of a different appearance, at that). So maybe the underground replaces something of your own by association?

File: 1487401657470.jpg (8.79 KB, 250x250, 1345340356536.jpg)


It's a subject that fascinated me in Junji Ito's short manga story "long dream," and something I've read a lot of interesting stories online about, but I had never really experienced it until about a year ago, after a long time of experimenting and trying to force one to happen to me. The story in this paste is a record of that dream I posted to another forum. It was extremely vivid and frankly scary as fuck and made me abandon my attempts. Have you ever had a long dream? Or maybe one that was fragmented and you kept going back to after waking up?

Get therapy.


>These notes are so disgustingly detailed and familiar that I refuse to share them. The subconscious is a nightmare within itself.

As much as you don't want to, could you possibly post something from it? I find it really fascinating.


I think I had one tonight where I kept waking up into dreams. I only remember bits and pieces, but I woke up and went to my bathroom and was really afraid. I think I spent like 10 minutes looking in the mirror and pinching myself to make sure I still wasn't dreaming. I'm still not sure honestly. Everything has that "haze" that dreams have.


>Or maybe one that was fragmented and you kept going back to after waking up?
Definitely had one of these, but I don't remember anything of it.


Not really, but I had this one time where I was in sort of a boss fight and every time I died, I'd get booted out of the dream due to the sudden fear of dying (because it felt real)
Luckily, though, I was sleeping in such a position that the sun wasn't shining in my eyes, so I could force myself back and retry the exact same battle but with more knowledge

I had a dream where it involved a same universe as Yume Nikki.

I was in a blue path surrounded with green trees, with the floor being similar to that of blue chunks of unknown substances, I walked in it, and saw Madotsuki, I touched her, ended up in the spawn, I saw her skin changed to bleach white, I touched her again and saw a broken Madotsuki with messed up limbs, and had a face like Monoko, It was so disturbing, it WOKE ME UP.

And this is a true dream.


Just remember; it will always get worse.
