I was walking down the road I lived in as a child. I was with a friend, not sure of his identity, but I was comfortable with him. We were smoking a joint and it actually worked, but he threw it on the ground and it sizzled as he stepped on it. I was sure there was a bit left but said nothing. Then overhead two pterodactyls flew past in formation. They were huge and moved fast. I said "those are real. you can tell they are real because they are flying, you can dress elephants up as mammoths and cows as aurochs but you can't mess like that with flying animals."
The pterodactyls swooped down and landed in the field behind my childhood home. We carried on walking away.
Most of my recent dreams have been extremely short and vague, and usually hard to remember. These are just a few that might be noteworthy...
Feb 25-26, 2019: "Getting My Car Fixed"
I had been in a car accident and went to the body shop where it was being worked on. When I went inside, they had a small restaurant/bar/lounge area near the waiting room and it was sort of a party atmosphere. There was also an Asian market that sold Chinese Coca Cola but I didn't have enough cash to buy it.
A young woman was there that I don't recognize from real life (mid-30's, attractive, full-figured, short brown hair), and she seemed to like me. I said something nice to her and she kissed my hand sweetly. (I actually woke up "missing" this young lady and thought of her throughout the day!)
Feb 27-28, 2019: "Magic Map"
I had a world map that when you drew something like a body of land on it, it would actually change the planet's geography.
Mar 4-5, 2019: "Creepy Lion Dude/Luke Perry"
The TV was showing an anthropomorphic fetishism (I think that's the correct term) club where people go to see humans who look like animals. I'm not sure if they were people in makeup or androids, but they were kinda creepy. One demonic-looking Lion/Man said that he spoke in the 'seven branches of Latin".
I went on Wikipedia to read how Luke Perry died and it said that he had stepped on a stingray or something in the water and had a fatal reaction to it.
I haven't been remembering my dreams much lately. Which is odd because I just came off phenibut and the last time I did that, I had the most vivid dreams of my life pretty much, for quite a while. I do have some galantamine, which I've used before to dream really vividly. But it basically works similarly to how a nicotine patch will give you strong dreams, because it's related to nicotine. It makes you sleep really lightly and wake up often. I also have some entada rheedi seeds (African dream seeds). I haven't experimented with them but once yet, I keep forgetting about them.
Last night I dreamt I owned a horse. She was a big horse, a dapple grey shire and I loved her and she loved me. The love I felt was overwhelming, you know that full on heart bursting with joy love. Not much happened in the dream, I rode her around, she was a little headstrong, jumping walls that I wasn't happy about jumping, and she jumped into a pool and swam with me on her back.
We were galloping around narrow deserted city streets, and through alleyways I could hear her horseshoes banging on the cobbles, sparks were coming off them and the clatter was echoing off the walls. I was not nervous about this breakneck gallop, although I had not encouraged it at all, I could feel her muscles moving underneath me and feel her mighty heart beating.
She had yellow ribbons I realised that I had plaited into her mane earlier, they were flowing in the breeze. We came to a river and I jumped off, took the bridle off her and she went and stood in the shallows and had a drink, while I watched.
Again I could feel my heart swell with a deep love for her.
I have never owned a horse and only sat on the back of one once.
Hey everyone! My computer's been down for over a week and I have a buttload of crazy dreams to post. I'm only on my friend's internet for a minute tonight but hopefully tomorrow I can start posting some. Stay tuned and thanks for keeping the thread alive...
Okay my friends, I finally got my computer back up and running so let's see if I can finally get caught up on these (I'm so far behind that I'm only posting the interesting ones)...
March 17-18, 2019: "Chased Through Target's Parking Lot/Michael Jackson 7-11"
I was in the lobby of a Target department store and went on a computer that they had opened to the public. A bunch of porn pop-ups came on the screen and there was a young boy behind me, so I quickly unplugged and shut it down so that he wouldn't see it.
Two big Sugg Knight-looking security guards came over and accused me of downloading porn on the store's computer. I tried reasoning with them but they didn't want to listen, so I took off running into the parking lot.
I couldn't find my car so I kept trying to exit the parking lot on foot, but no matter where I went I seemed to end up back in the same spot. In the meantime there were horrible scenes of hookers getting shot by pimps, people being beaten up and all kinds of terrible things going on around me.
I finally found my way to a 7-11 that specialized in Michael Jackson-themed ice cream cakes. They depicted him in all the different stages of his life. All that I wanted was a basic sundae, which I finally found covered in mango and some other fruit. The guy behind the counter said that it was $17, and I asked him how a scoop of ice cream could cost so much.
March 19-20, 2019: "Lucid Flying And An Alien Plague"
I was leaving the local mall and saw that my pockets had somehow ended up full of Benadryl pills. They were encased in containers that looked like those Tide laundry pods. I didn't want to be falsely accused of stealing them so I found a restroom and buried them in the garbage.
I went out to the parking lot and kept seeing what I thought was my car, but every time that I got close it morphed into someone else's. This is when I realized that I was dreaming, and of course, began to fly over the highway that runs alongside of the mall. The scenery looked very colorful and modern, sort of like Las Vegas at night.
Some young black women in a car were cheering me on, so I briefly merged into the car with them and began making out with the one driving! She was worried about crashing but I said, "Don't worry, it's only a dream.". I said my goodbyes and took off for the sky once again.
I noticed that objects like cars and billboards had begun to grow this half rust/half moss-looking material on them, which was supposedly caused by some type of virus or bacteria from outer space. I started to worry that it was real, and my lucidity faded.
March 20-21, 2019: "Vomit Art And A Beheaded Friend" (GROSS ALERT!)
A young woman and three male friends were making some type of "graffiti" by vomiting all over outdoor structures and smearing it around! I was watching them do it outside of a 7-11 and we all got ordered to leave by a female manager.
Later I was at some bar with an old childhood friend and he was becoming very drunk and obnoxious. First he insulted me about not making more of myself career-wise, then he started a fistfight with one of the patrons by saying that the guy's feet smelled! They went outside and when the guy came back in, he threw my buddy's decapitated head at me!!!
There was also a really graphic part with prostitutes performing disgusting sex acts, but I'll just leave that to your imaginations!
Same Night: "Shower Caddy Animal"
I went to take a shower and had two small bottles of shampoo and/or conditioner named "Simon" and "Garfunkel"! The shower caddy was designed to look like a black or dark gray cat, which I thought was cute. Then I reached for the shampoo and the "caddy kitty" turned out to be some rabid animal that turned around and hissed at me!
(The next dreams are long and I need to get off the computer, so I'll have to continue when I get a chance...)
I had to laugh when I woke up from this first one...
March 21-22, 2019: "Married To A Meth Addict"
This young blond woman and I decided to get married, so I performed a symbolic-type wedding by building a small Chinese-style altar with a mini pagoda, dragons and such. I wasn't sure if it was a valid ceremony but she believed that it was.
Later I walked in on her snorting and/or smoking from a huge bag of crystal methamphetamine. I voiced my displeasure and she went out into the back yard. She was acting crazy in front of my mom, who asked her what was wrong.
I stood behind my new wifey and emphatically mouthed to my mom, "She's TWEEEAKING."!
March 22-23, 2019: "Scenes From A Department Store"
I was working a 9-5 shift at some department store and realized at 4:30 that I still hadn't taken my lunch break. A redheaded male manager with a large beard yelled at me for waiting too long and told me to clock out right away.
When I swiped my badge, the readout said that I had committed a felony by supposedly giving some customer a $1.23 discount on a cell phone! I was terrified of getting arrested and/or fired, but the managers didn't seem to think that it would be a problem.
I didn't have anything to eat so I spent my lunch hour browsing around the store. I found a large Elvis Costello CD boxed set on sale for only $6.98, so I put one on hold for when I got paid. Some rude lady customer wanted me to help her find sewing needles and got angry when I told her that I was on my break.
I don't remember a lot at the moment but the past 2 nights I have had amazing dreams, so vivid, long-lasting, and adventurous. 2 nights ago I dreamed that me and my brother and friend were in my parents' house and discovered that the basement had a sub-basement. We found treasure in it, and then found another sub-basement. This continued to the 5th sub-basement which was like a cavern, with a huge 100+ foot ceiling and exits to the outside where I saw that we were near the top of a MASSIVE structure that extended down beyond seeing. It was so fucking cool.
Then last night I had another dream, I have been doing a million things since I woke up so I can't remember much now but I do remember my girl and I were starting to have sex when I woke up, and it was as vivid and realistic as real life.
Hmm I wish I remembered more about that dream because the rest of it was some cool adventure too.
Differences in my habits are that I started taking mucuna pruriens extract (L-dopa) as well as L-threonine and CBD throughout the day (smoked, sometimes with a bit of THC added but mostly CBD). Part of it may be a lot less THC consumed, but I am sleeping so well and having really vivid dreams. Not to mention I feel really happy and good and well as motivated and energetic throughout the day. I hope it continues.
I've had a lot of dreams the past three nights, going through withdrawals and sleeping maybe 3 hours a night.
They've all been variations on nightmares. All very complex, some recurring, and always containing a short portion where I find myself becoming sexually involved with a beautiful girl, only for my wife to show up at the last second and stop me in some fashion, and then the nightmarish/disturbing parts resume.
I have no idea what to make of it. Perhaps I have a subconscious desire for extra marital sexual intimacy. But I really haven't the slightest idea how to address that if it's the case.
I dreamt that I was living in an apartment with my parents (I think), and my cat had run off. I was concerned because it had been snowing. The remainder of the dream I was in different places outside trying to find my cat but I kept finding other cats that looked like mine but weren't.
I wonder why I can't have a good dream once in a while.
I have a theory that depression carries over into dreams. What do y'all think?
Yeah, our worst fears always find their way into dreams. My sleep has been fragmented lately and last night's dream is the first that I remember in any detail...
April 15-16, 2019: "Scenes From The 1920'S"
(I must watch too many old Jimmy Cagney movies!)
I found myself back in the 1920's or early 30's, in the home of a rich married couple with one or two young daughters. Most of the furniture and décor was pretty close to that period, and I think that part of it was in black & white. The husband had mob ties and ordered to have his wife killed for some reason.
From there it went through a series of "scenes" where she would alternately be in the room, or dead, or missing, or in the middle of some horrible ordeal. In one she asked me to help raise her blimp up to help it get off the ground. As it floated over a 1920's New York City skyline, it suddenly burst into flames like the Hindenburg!
I was horrified and ran back to their house. The husband asked me about her and I tried to show him a photograph of the disaster without his little girls seeing it. I suddenly remembered that he *wanted* her to disappear and wondered if he had orchestrated the whole "accident" and, without my knowledge, used me as his accomplice.
In another "scene", I was told that she had been committed to a tuberculosis sanatorium like they had back then. In another one, time had passed and he had married another woman. In yet another one, I walked in on two big mafia legbreaker/hitman dudes beating some guy up.
They had two old upright pianos that were very different; One looked pretty standard but the other one was encased in silver and looked sort of like a large Moog-type synthesizer from the 1970's, which looked utterly futuristic in this 1920's setting.
It takes practice. Personally the more I write down dreams right after I wake up, the better at remembering details I am. Also lighter sleep makes dreams MUCH more memorable. I go through stages usually. I rarely remember mine as well as dreamflyer does but sometimes I will for a couple of weeks. If I go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time every day I get stronger dreams, and if I wake up in the early morning and doze back off, that's when I have really vivid dreams.
