So I decided to post a few of my dreams here. These dreams are all non-lucid. I think I’ll continue posting a selection of my dreams and hopefully I’ll see a progression as I become increasingly aware in my dreams and are able to start doing some of the dreamwork I’m interested in.
EDIT: decided to make this thread into a regular dream journal
There are people in caskets sealed with magic and containing spells that will light them on fire after a certain number of days. We need to figure out how to save these people without prematurely setting off the traps. There is a number of the days left next to their caskets. One person who looks like Neo from the Matrix is trapped underneath a lake. Me and another member of my group creep down to such the magical barrier trapping him, he shakes his head and when our fingers contact the barrier we receive an electric shock. Meanwhile there is a woman with black hair who is in love with the leader of our group. Whenever he is in her presence she gets really nervous. One time he poked her in the back with a pencil eraser to get her to move out of the way and she got so nervous she spilled coffee down the front of her shirt. At the end of the dream she was following us to the caskets which we were going to investigate again.
In a large performance hall, there is quite a crowd there. They are putting on an adaption of a Russian novel set to dance. The first scene two chubby men in ridiculously tall powdered wigs dancing while a third more stockily built man dances with them. He is approached by a bear with a wine bottle. I’m given to understand this is a drinking scene. Anyways the woman sitting next to me is getting up and down, walking in front of me, and telling everyone how excited she is to see this play. She apologizes to me if she is causing a disturbance, I tell her it’s okay, I can understand how exciting it is to be watching, Sometime during the play a suspended speaker swings slowly into the part of the crowd where I am sitting. It sets off some wires above our heads and starts a large fire. We debate whether we should evacuate as the fire grows. I do. Eventually the fire gets really big and everyone evacuates. Someone manages to put it out though and people return to their seats. After that a friend of mine approaches me. He wants to introduce me to someone. He’s trying to matchmake. He says he can introduce me to a princess, or a Romani friend of his who lives on an island in a lake. He says that St Dennis is visiting her- the Romani lady- right now. I get really excited about this, exclaiming again and again “I can see Saint Dennis?! I can see Saint Dennis?!” He smiles at me whimsically, knowing I’m not interested in his Romani friend, but seeing St. Dennis.
Adventures on the Sea Floor
Visiting the sea floor in a large submersible with a group of others When we get to the bottom and settle down I exclaim “Here we are again, I love it every time!” I am shushed by the others. When we make it to the bottom we are attacked by a large sea creature. “What is it?” One of the passengers asks. “A giant squid!” I reply. The squid doesn’t do any damage thankfully and when we make it to the bottom our powers shuts off momentarily while we switch to another generator. When the lights come back on, the squid is nowhere to be seen and seems to have forgotten about us. We start exploring the sea floor. There is a forest of trees with red fruit on them. They looks like regular trees, but underwater of course. A narration says something about Australians deforesting these trees from their continent and something about New Guinea. There is a display on the windows that you can pull up that will provide you information on things you are seeing, but it looks like a reflection on the window rather than a digital overlay. One of the passengers is using it before I wake up.
Strange place with an Alice in Wonderland atmosphere. A teapot is throwing a child into the air- but sometimes it’s a woman and not a child. Another woman who appears to be a friend of mine enters the scene. She is dressed in black green and red harlequin silks. She’s upset because a party she was supposed to throw was usurped by another woman dressed similarly in black leggings with stiff black ballerina like skirts. We go to this woman and her compatriots. For some reason we bring food with us- broccoli. When we tell them what the issue is they decide to settle it with a fight. They move their food off the table and I take our food and put it on a plastic chair for protection. Then the fight begins. The woman who usurped our friend’s position dances around singing about making it rain while our friend dances around too singing about avoiding the rain. The other woman then sings about being surprised our friend is avoiding the rain. The scene stops mid battle though, and the dream jumps to an Amazon page where you can buy the video of the first half of the battle, the second half to be released at a later date.
Crying over a Cake
We’re at my brother’s family’s house. I’m with my parents. Suddenly we discover that people we don’t know are coming over. My parents are upset set with this, they don’t like being invited to parties where they don’t know all the people who are attending. We decide to go with it however. Turns out we’re all going to be serving members of this family who are coming over- we’ll be their own personal waiters. Two of them are vegans, one just doesn’t drink milk or eat dairy. I’m serving that person. So I guess the people come over… though I don’t ever recall seeing them. There’s a cake my dad takes to set on the table but he either bumps into the door frame with the cake or somehow fumbles it and it falls on the ground all ruined. He then gets really upset and in the living room and starts crying. At some point he transitioned into my nephew, my brother’s son, so now it’s my nephew in the living room crying and being all upset. He says something about “Wanting to sail the ocean in the Atlantic”. I go to him to comfort him and we lie on an ottoman on our backs together. I say “You know if you want to sail the Atlantic, I have family members who have a boat.” The ottoman starts moving gently just as if we are on a boat. I’m not sure what’s causing this motion, in the dream I think it’s my nephew who pushing and pulling the ottoman with his foot. I say something like “hear the waves, and the cry of the gulls flying above, the feel of the sun on your face, the smell of the salt air…” My nephew is cheered up a lot by all this. Someone calls him and he goes over to them but not before promising to continue our discussion when he gets back.
