A few nights ago, I had the first lucid dream I've had since I was a kid. This was a real shock to me, especially considering just how dull and lifeless my dreams are now (or how bad my "dream memory" has gotten?) compared to the intensely vivid dreams of my youth. This particular dream just came out of nowhere. I immediately tried to control my dream by summoning someone, and I was partially successful before I woke up suddenly.

Ever since, I've been trying to have more lucid dreams. I've read up a bit on different sites related to the topic and have started keeping a dream journal. But a lot of the information I've seen out there has been somewhat generalized or vague. Since it seems a lot of people here have lucid dreams and can control them, I thought I'd ask for more specific advice here. Any particular sleeping/eating habits I should be going for to trigger these kinds of dreams?

The picture of Nurse Tewi is absolutely related if I can get this lucid dreaming thing to work.

1.So this one dream I had I was on one of the moons of Jupiter. It's the one with the surface of ice and an ocean beneath it. So I'm in the ocean beneath the ice, I can't see my own body so I don't know what I look like, but I'm moving through the water. It's very, very, very dark. There is a lot of movement around me, and a faint noise. A creature with a very slim body like an eel comes at me and I manage to dodge, the creature is fast however, and turns on a dime. I wished that I could evolve a drill and burrow through the ice to the surface to escape, except I just wished the idea in my head i didnt say all those words. So I have my drill now and get to the surface. It's very windy and just as dark. There are hundreds of pixel sized stars in the background. And a 200x200 ball that is the sun. there are creatures rolling around on the surface, being knocked by the wind. an eagle like thing swoops at me, i idea wish again but for wings and claws. i fly up and drive my claws into its back. its warm, and very gooey. like fresh taffy. its blood is a deep purple.

2. the oh-so-common "my teeth fell out" dream. in the dream i wake up from sleeping and head to my bathroom. i'm going to brush my teeth and I open my mouth to inspect my teeth (irl i have a cavity forming so i check on it 1st thing) all my teeth look like graham crackers that have been dipped in milk. they are learning side to side, brown, and crumbly looking. i get scared seeing it. i push my teeth with my tongue and my front teeth crumble off half way and fall out of my mouth. thudding into the sink. i start crying and rubbing my arm in my mouth and getting all the graham crackers out.

3. i dreamed i was in an outside setting. a park sort of thing. im on a bench with other people and other benches with more people. about 5 rows with 2 benches each we are facing a hill, no one is moving or talking. the sun is setting so the sky is changing color. one half is darker than the other. there is a loud noise like metal twisting and a tank fall from the top of the hill and lands on most of the people. i run over the benches and sit by the corner of the hill. (the hill is a pretty sharp "L") the tank rolls by. i hear screaming and shouting, the sky is filled with smoke. bottom half glowing red and yellow. i crawl under one of the benches and there's a pillow i use to hide myself with. the ground is now a wooden floor and the bench a bed. i hear the door kick open and soldier comes inPost too long.

Pic unrelated, but seriously, I feel like this might be a dream FRAGMENT or something, But I remembered this an typed it down before I could forget it.

in this dream, I am a little black haired girl in a kimono (was only able to tell due to a nearby mirror) standing before
two caskets with two men who looked like feudal lords inside. everyone looks releived for some reason,
then a man comes up to me and hands me a paintbrush and says "go ahead, turn a nighting gale into a phoenix".
so i hesitantly step forward and place the brush on an altar betweeen the caskets and light it on fire, the flames from the brush look like a beautiful bird and everyone applauds me.
then a middle aged woman in a kimono rushes upstairs and yells at me
"what do you think you're doing up here, Kanai?!". The man who gave me the brush pats the
woman on the shoulder and said "Its okay, shes seen Zeus now". to which she replied with
"Oh…Okay". The dream ended with the man turning to me and smiling as he told me
"Okay, little kanai, you can go play now"

I'm seriously weirded out by this dream because it made no sense to me, Do you have any ideas, /yume/?

Lol, if only, I'm being dead serious about this dream though, I had it again the other night and I'm seriously wondering what the hell its about ;/


Maybe it was telling you to be more creative in your life? Maybe the burning paintbrush shows you that you have potential to be a great artist, or that fire art is your true calling.

Maybe, the little black haired girl is your persona, the mantle with which you will be known by with the rest of the world.

As for the rest of your dream, I have no idea.


Or its just a random weird dream caused by watching too much anime.


it makes sense, I doodle from time to time, but I feel like I can be so much better than I am right now.

Oddly enough, I haven't watched much anime as of late, I've been reading more than anything (No, not manga)


I'm thinking the dream represents the death of a conflict between two warring aspects of your psyche. There's definitely a thread of both aging and renewal— perhaps there is something within classical tradition that appeals to you.

What are the colors in your dreams? Show me your color palette of a recent dream, recurring dream, etc.

Any one else have those dreams where they are talking to a girl/guy that you want to date? Not a person in real life, but a person in your dreams.

Well I just had one of those dreams, and they always suck after wards what with waking up realizing its not real.
Heres the insult to injury though, I swear, that dream was real. I remember the entire dream from beginning to end in perfect detail. I remember what I said, I remember what she said, I remember what I was going to say to ask her out, I remember where we were, and for the most part, the dream was a perfect mimic of real life.

Oh did I mention she was amazingly hot?

Thanks /yume/ for listening to my rant, i'mma go cry now that I almost got to 1st base with my subconscious.


Sob I guess I have these a lot.
And it sucks because you know it'll never happen in real life, and feels more real.


>> 296 Whats even worse is that I could tell we were beginning to form a relationship. We were going to start getting somewhere. ;_;


Not sure if I had a dream like this specifically, but it certainly rings a bell.

I've had dreams about an IRL person a lot though, although they were never about datig, lol.

Last night I had a dream where me and some people from my class went to this camp ground. It was winter and the snow was as high as the tree tops. My friend had a baby (Not in real life) and she put the baby on a tree branch and left to get fire wood. I brought my laptop so i could play Broken Bottles and the screen went black. I put it by the baby and the baby cooed and the word "hello" went on the screen. I typed in "Who is this?" and It said "Your Name is Lenore." and I typed in "Yes. Who is this?" and the conversation went on for a long time and I learned I was Satan of nightmares. I make people have nightmares. It told me the power I had and I went on a killing spree using my mind to make peoples heads explode. Giving them Nightmares.


>>190 "Uh huh…..tell me more as I slowly back away into this van and buy a ticket to Mexico."


Even that won't save you from the explosive nightmares.

Odd dream, OP. What exactly did you do that night?

Who has a Dream Blog?
Sawlogs is a really good one

3 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I don't have a dream blog, but I do occasionally post about them on my tumblr.
Yes I know, look at that faggot for using tumblr, etc.


I have a day log, but i definitely should have a dream log… thank you for reminding me about this.

those of you that keep it private: is it because you want to keep all your dreams private from people or would you ever be willing to share? are you willing to share?


File: 1319545246449.jpg (197.42 KB, 1241x780, 1280914369986.jpg)

I used to share my dreams with my friends on livejournal, now I keep them private.

I guess it's because my dreams began to reflect my personal issues and frustrations more clearly and I want to keep that shit to myself. They used to be more abstract and fantastic, and though they are still like that often enough, my personal life has become pretty fucked up over the past couple years and my dreams reflect that more now. No one else needs to know what's going on inside my head these days.

Also hardly any of them shared their dreams with me or had anything to say about mine except "wow that's awesome/weird/scary lol", so fuck 'em.



I have to agree with this statement as to why I'd prefer to keep mine private.


I have various dream entries scattered about on paper and text files. I've been meaning to centralize everything into a dream log, either in physical or digital form.

As for sharing, I only tell one person my dreams, and they've always listened.

Hey /yume/, I have a question.

When you record your dreams, do you put the date of the night you had the dream or the date of the following morning?
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


the date of the day i wake up, as my sleep most often happens past into that day or in that day entirely.
just makes sense to have the date being the endtime to me


Current date & time, obviously


I write down the date when I have the first dream of the night. The next entries until the next date are the times that I woke up to record the dreams. For example:

5:09 Dream of girl. Fragments, airport.

6:40 On rooftop, take plunge. Fly into sunset.

16:30 (afternoon nap) WILD dream. Met family


Seems obvious to me. What way do you go about it exactly?


I put the day it is as I record it. I go to bed at 10:30 but all my dreams most likely occur after midnight, so technically it was that day anyway, ya know?


I record it with the date of the morning after.
It's more of a habit of putting the date of the current day as I am are writing my dream.
I don't put the time, although I will mention it if I fell asleep at an unusual time, like a nap or accidentally dosed off.

Last night I had dreams about a friend of mine and I told her about it. She asked me a very good question.

I've never seen many of her tattoos, but shes told me about them; I just cant remember if I did.

So /yume/, for those of you with tattoos, are they on you in your dreams?

Also in my original post I meant to post this with it but it didn't upload it, this is the symbol I have on my hand.


Going to try this one more time if it doesn't work, oh well.

I'm not sure how you feel about using a Sharpie.

Thicker, darker lines are easier to see again the skin at night. If you have some kind of electronic device that glows use it (IE desktop tower in stand-by mode = blinky power source.)


counter to the dark problem:
… are you ever in your dreams, in a place where you will not know what is on your hand if you look?
No matter the lighting situation I've always been able to see animate objects with clarity, or even, known it was dark/difficult to see but still was able to see it anyway (I dont really know how to explain this better than that).
The purpose of the image on your hand is not to legitimately check if it's there while awake but to notice a difference when you check it in your dreams.
Even looking at your hand, while not seeing the symbol but knowing what the symbol looks like, when you are awake, reinforces the habit of checking whether it's real or not… so as long as you can always see your hand in your dream, regardless of lighting, the purpose is fulfilled.

Does anyone actually not see their hands when they put them to their face or whatnot in their dreams?
now im very curious.


>>209 When I looked at my hand it was more of a situation where I was half asleep, half awake. So I suppose it was like my dreams were projecting themselves onto reality.

Also, my body for some reason has never changed in my dreams, teeth never fallen out, things have never been out of place. Then again I can't ever "feel" my body inside dreams except a few specific times. My dreams have never centered around me though, more often than not I'm not even myself in my dreams.

Whenever I look at my hand while awake I repeat this mantra while looking at it "If it looks like this I'm awake, if it looks different I'm dreaming." It serves as a good reality check too.
