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’d like to visit someplace like that. It seems very surreal, while my dreams are usually very ordinary and reflect my own experiences and emotions. My dreams that are more distant from waking life feel more childlike, but in a good way.

I’m curious to what you learn in lecture in that school. You seem lucid enough, is it anything coherent?

As the OP, I was looking for a way to make my own. There’s no place I can really call home in my dreams. I found your story very interesting, though. I’ve valued dreams long before I knew about Yume Nikki and would be happy to hear more from you if you’d like to share.

Not as bad as it sounds, but to be fair it usually turns into a nightmare about being lost

>>2549
Who knows, maybe it'll happen eventually. My dreams always used to be related to my waking life when I was younger, but they've become kind of their own little world now.

In the dreams I'm usually wandering the halls instead of attending any classes, but I can remember some things about the classrooms. Some of them have basic kindergarten/preschool level stuff, like posters of the alphabet & numbers up on the walls (which is strange, considering it's definitely not an elementary school). Most just have diagrams, stickmen and such. Nothing coherent that I can remember.



Also, here's a picture of my old school, to give yall sort of an idea of what the one I dream about is like. The one in my dreams is based off the real building, but way, way taller, and darker in color. Like if the one in the picture just extended endlessly into the sky. I guess it's kind of how I always viewed the school, grim and intimidating.

Gonna add one more thing I forgot last time, which is the auditorium. It's always been one of my favorite parts of the dream. Sometimes a staircase will take me to this certain hallway. It has big arched windows at the end showing a red sky. The hall itself is made of dark reddish-brown bricks, with a carpet going down the middle that's the same color as the sky. Towards the center of the hall, there's 2 doorways: one leading to a room that always has a book fair going on inside of it, and the other leading to the auditorium. It's more of a giant opera-style concert hall than an auditorium, really. Same dark bricks as the outside of it, with red carpeting and seats. It's got cream colored paneling on the walls. It's kind of like stripes, going back and forth between brick and paneling. The room itself is a large square, with one of the sides having a stage, and the other sides having ground level and overhanging seating areas. I don't know if I'm describing it good, but it's so pretty. I love going there.

I see this figure in my dreams. Out of the corner of my eye, he looks like a man wearing a rain coat. When I've gotten a good look at him, he's actually a floating raincoat with some sort of strange light shining from where the head would be. On the surface of the light is the face of a man in his 30s or 40s. He's clean shaven with light green or bluish eyes & a 1000-yard stare, thin lips on a mouth in a constant neutral expression, with thin, light-brown eyebrows. The face kind of "floats" on the light, sliding slightly from place to place as it moves like the puck in air hockey. The light behind the face is kind of a bluish, greenish hue but mostly white.

Sorry in advance for MS paint but it was the best I could do. He doesn't have any hands, feet or legs, but has a shadow. I have a very specific recurring dream where I'm maybe 8 or at most 10, walking in a wooded area that looks like an area near my old home. A little girl with dark brown hair is with me. We pass a cactus with a large fruit and then spot the creature. I tell her to get down, but it hovers menacingly, looking for us. I don't know why I keep having the dream. The girl is wearing a pink or red white polkadot dress and sandals. I'm in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers. She's short, maybe younger, and seems familiar but I can't identify who. It happen years apart, and don't doesn't correlate to anything like stress or life events. The earliest was when I was a teen. I'm not normally skittish. It will take this specific form and always ends with me waking up in a cold sweat w/ intense fear. Sometimes he will "hijack" other dreams by appearing in a crowd of people or just out of no where. In darkness, he's easy to miss, especially in rain but sometimes he appears in broad daylight, as is the case in the recurring dream, which feels lucid, almost like a memory.

WTF? Can anybody help me figure it out? Has anybody seen a similar figure before? Is there a rational explanation?

 No.2567

I've got no insights of my own on this. Googling reoccurring ominous figure in dream is the only thing I think you can do to figure it out. Maybe try talking to him next time?

My favourtie dreams are mostly, where I am alone. One time, I was waiting to catch a bus, that arrives in about ~5 hours in an empty city. I just walked around, found a train station with a street fighter arcade, played it a bit and just explored afterwards a bit more. Even the whole town looked very dreary I never felt so calm.
The other time, I was just walking a some farm roads at dawn, where I lived nearby. Somewhere I walked invisbile stairs and stopped to just sit in the air and watch the landscape. I feeled a soft, cold air on my skin.

I don't have many dreams like that, since my fucking ADHD mind can't stop to put some random shit all over the place.

When I'm lucid, it's usually quiet. I don't meet anyone unless I'm looking for someone. Most places, even suburbs and cities, seem completely vacant. I wonder if that's what I really want.

In one dream, I was in a small town somewhere in Italy. It was nice, but I wanted to be by myself, so I hitched a bus and rode it out into the countryside. I hopped off and sat down on a cliff by the road, and looked down at the fields below. It was one of the most serene dreams I've ever had, the countryside of Italy is beautiful. I try to go back there when I dream and see where my mind takes me.

Do any of you write/draw/do whatever other work while still asleep or in that in between phase when you’re technically awake but your mind isn’t?

It’s pretty rare, but I sometimes will have a sudden urge to write while being half asleep or wake up just to write something and fall asleep again right away. It usually happens when I dream or think of something that I want to remember or tell someone. Unfortunately I never last long enough to write something actually useful, and sometimes the things I write are so incoherent that I have to accept whatever I meant is lost.

Even half asleep I still know I must be fast and concise because I may fall back asleep any time and lose what I wanted to write down. Most times I still remember writing it after waking up, but there have been times I woke up with a notebook to my side, or my cellphone with a note app or a message app open, or find random things written by me that I have no recollection of noting them down. It’s like lucid dreaming but you’re writing in the real world.

I’ve lost most of these notes during the years, but I’ll post two that I still have. I don’t know their context and don’t remember why I wrote them. They’re stupid but I like reading them because they were written in a state of dream logic and it feels like someone else’s thoughts.

“A family photo that a group of people find out they all have the same one. In the picture, the mother and the father are the same, only the child is different in every photo, and the three are always in the same position with the same background behind.”

“I remember when I was a child, sometimes I found my grandma sleeping on my bed. But I understood why she wouldn’t want to sleep in hers. I too wouldn’t want to sleep on the place where I died.”

That sounds really cool. I understand that your notes make you nervous, but having such detailed dreams and being able to remember them well enough to jot them down are pretty awesome skills.
I don’t think there is much reason to be so bothered by them. I always see all this stuff as the mind trying to entertain itself while we’re “disconnected”, so the brain just comes up with what knows it will catch your attention. If there is any reason to be bothered by these things, I did have a grandmother that passed away when I was a kid, so the last note I wrote in >>2528 is going to make me freaking lose sleep.

Do you have notes that you can share, transcribing them here or posting a photo?

Here's a transcription of the dream journal I took on March 17th of this year:

>I'm in North Carolina, at a home I don't recognize. Apparently it belongs to my grandparents, but I've never seen it, and it looks like the interior of a steamboat.


>I go to a Home Depot (carrying a pillow for some reason) with (mysterious man, looks like Danny Glover) and find a notebook that looks similar to mine. It has all of my writings in it. I try to explain that this is my notebook, and start crying and losing my mind. My legs are also very tired and I seem rooted in place. In the notebook are drawings I've made in real life as well as ones I don't think I've ever made. Some appear to be made by someone else as well.


>The mysterious man also talked to several other people in the store about height and skin color, they didn't seem to mind and even laughed along with him.


That's the unedited transcription. In pic related, I wrote some additional notes, and tried as best I could to replicate the handwriting I saw in the notebook because it was not my own. I also sketched the symbol I saw, and after doing more research I found out that it is a Celtic Cross, a religious symbol that has been adopted by the Alt-Right. I also wrote down that I had seen a drawing of an axe with a heart-shaped pommel, but I didn't sketch it after I woke up and I've forgotten what it looked like.

I've been trying to induce lucid dreaming for a while now, and I've looked up a lot of methods on doing so. Tried the WBTB method, but I always end up in terrifying nightmares that I can't wake out of and have little control over. Seems like I can't lucid dream when I want to, and I rarely get it when I'm not trying.

Has anyone else experienced this sort of problem? If so, are there any ways to get around this and induce calm dreams?

Pic unrelated

 No.2535

If you're lucid, I'd say it's a success. Dream control is an aspect that comes with time and practice, especially if you're inexperienced. I'm honestly not so great at it either, with only a few dream powers on my list, but I'm sure you will be able to get it.

Keep in mind that WBTB doesn't train awareness at all, and that there are different levels of lucidity. If you're finding that you have trouble with autonomy or remembering accomplish goals, I would work on DILD techniques that work for you, such as RCs or ADA.
Building good awareness with DILD techniques will be helpful anyway.

About the nightmares, I think it would be helpful to have a different perspective on the fear that you feel. I've found that the intense terror that I feel during lucid nightmares is actually independent of my consciousness. It comes from the dream itself. If you can find a way to separate yourself from the emotion, maybe there is a way forward. Often, confronting or even embracing the horror can be effective, but this is something you will have to try for yourself. I'm sorry that the best advice I can give you on this is from personal experience, as that can be quite variable, especially with dreams.

Best of luck. There's still a lot more for you to see.

hey acronym fuck, could you maybe drop a glossary in here?

>>2536

DILD- Dream Induced Lucid Dreaming. Basic stuff. You dream, then you realize you are dreaming, become lucid. Compare to wake induced lucid dreaming where there is no lapse in consciousness. This is a pretty blanket term, covering several induction methods.

RC- Reality check. A common induction method that involves repeatedly checking throughout the day if one is dreaming. A common one is examining the hand for the correct number of fingers or trying to push a finger through the palm of your hand. This is done in the hopes that the dreamer will repeat this action while dreaming and become lucid.

ADA- All day awareness. Technique that attempts to attain lucidity by increasing general sensory awareness rather than doing direct checks. Pretty straightforward.

WBTB- Wake back to bed. Waking up at some time in the middle of the night before going back to sleep. The short period of wakefulness can increase awareness in the dream or allow you to pursue more direct tactics.

 No.2538

>>2537
Thanks for the advice! Generally I'm not very self-conscious while I'm awake, which makes it hard to become conscious while I'm asleep. I'll try to remember to use those methods.

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.

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.

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?

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.

 No.1596

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.

 No.1613

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.

 No.2504

>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.
>"flight"
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.
>timestop
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.
