Wonderful World of Dreams

I have a great interest in dreaming and believe it can play a really important role in our waking lives. On the path to lucid dreaming (a truly fascinating topic) I must first actively complete a dream diary. This entails scribbling down notes as soon as I wake up from each and every dream, even if it’s 4 in the morning.

Fearing possible libel suits, I shall not be posting the entries online this time around. However, you can still read the posts from the diary I created 3-years ago on my old blog. Reading back these posts, I can practically remember them as vividly as if they were aged memories from my waking life.

Here are some examples of the wonderful and often just plain weird entries:

Attacking Rats:

I was walking home, going past Edward’s house. I looked up into the trees and saw what I believed to be rats, although they looked more like beavers with a menacing open mouth. One of them lunged from the tree and quickly ran up to me and bit into my trainers. I noticed that I was wearing no socks but instead had a sock in my hand which was full of something. I then hit the creature with the sock and woke up.

Fruit market on another world:

I had somehow been given a special telescope with the ability to see great distances, seeing planets with great detail. I however needed to be in the sea to use the telescope. I ran around in a computer game fashion trying to find a big red circle checkpoint. I found a boat docked by a wooden pier with two people manning it. I joked around with one guy then got in a boat and haggled with the woman owner who I believe was Australian and who had a really bad attitude.Next, I remember looking through the telescope randomly at a star. As I focused, I actually found myself gliding towards where I was focusing until I was actually physically present there. The sky was rapidly moving and dark blue in colour. The beach was made up of layers of fruit, many exotic (I can remember Pineapple) although I recall no smell. I then was firmly landed in between a row of fruit where a woman was sorting through the fruit like a librarian.I then had a vision of three other woman entering the planet through a lift, and I had the feeling that they had the intention of bringing me back to Earth. I grabbed the lady (who I noticed had a tattoo underneath her belly button) and decided to use the lift myself.

Update: For those who’ve told me that they don’t dream, or cannot recall them, check out this guide to remembering your dreams.
