Mostly I am in an urban setting, not necessarily where I live now, although often I think it is local in the dream, but it will look different than in reality (huh?). I am usually quite active in my dreams, running effortlessly up and down steep hills and outdoor stairways and often flying, sometimes with feet just barely off the ground. The urban settings are sometimes quite magical looking -- like they may be in some European country, and are frequently very colorful. I do dream in color. Narrow little alleys, outdoor marketplaces, interesting old buildings. The people themselves are shadowy and I don't know them.

I dunno. All kinds of stuff. Lets see... last night, I know I had some dreams that I was into, but can't really remember what they were about. I have a lot of dreams where I am floating around my house, my parents house I grew up in, or my grandpas house. I see people and things happening. Goofy.

I dream that I am in some other State other than Colorado or just some dream about something new and different happening in my life

Well, I do not remember my dreams very often. But when I do, they are doozies. For example, shortly after Sharon and I got divorced I had this bizarre dream about Grant. In the dream, he was a baby again but he was the size he was when Sharon and I split up. He was asking me when Sharon and I would get back together and I had told him that wasn't going to happen. He started crying, but the tears didn't run down his face, instead they pooled around his eyes until it looked like he was wearing a transparent, pool-blue colored domino mask. I woke up sweating and trembling from that one

Gee, FG, that sounds like astral projection.

Hard to say. It varies. I remember driving a purple Corvette the other night. Most dreams are forgotten soon after waking.

One dream I'll never forget. I was laying in an open grave, the sky was red with a full moon, and there were wolves around the edge of the grave looking down on me. My wife woke me up because I was howling out loud.

Astral Projection. I do that frequently.

Being in school trying to find my classroom is a common dream, even though I'm 52 years old.
New Star Trek or Quantum Leap episodes.

Cities and weird architecture, musicians (most recently the Rolling Stones) and on one occasion, a barfing tiki.

I have tried to do it a number of times. I usually end up with an experience that scares the $#!? out of me and give up on it.

usually something sexual.

I always dream about other places. I have a lot of recurring dreams and even though I know Ive been there before, I never realise it was in a previous dream. I only know Im in a dream when elevators appear.

I dream about going back to work where I used to work like 10 years ago. But, it's different and I don't fit in and it's stressful.
Other things too, but I forget 95% of my dreams.

I never try to dream about anything. I've never really had a dream scare me, either. Well, that I remember. Maybe I should get one of those dream catcher gigs.

Different things. I can't usually remember. One recent one was about work.

Actually astral projection need not take place only in dreams, though it is common for it to do so. I have also tried to engage in lucid dreaming a number of times, with results very similar to my astral projection experiments.

As well as the dream catcher, you might want to try certain herbs available online such as zachatechichi (perfectly legal, BTW). Also according to shamanistic lore, a pouch of mugwort (avaiable at any herb store) under your pillow aids in dreaming. Also, tea made with mugwort is very relaxing and helps if you have trouble sleeping.

I found some tricks to causing lucid dreaming and also manipulating the direction dreams take. It's pretty fun.

Like what? I might be interested in trying again sometime. It usually scares hell out of me, but I may not be ready yet to stop trying altogether.

One is to 'test' your perceptions regularly while awake... like flipping light switches, looking at the clock, checking for dreamlike abnormalities. Even though you know for a fact you are awake and not dreaming, remembering to do this will eventually bleed over to your dream life and you will think to do it while dreaming. Something won't be right then, and you will know it is a dream.

Another thing is to consciously think about lucid dreaming, sometimes thinking about knowing you are dreaming.' If you do that long enough eventually you'll have a lucid dream. The book I was reading even suggested that since I was reading about it, it would be more likely to happen.

There are also ways to control lucid dreams without waking yourself up. It is to expect things to happen rather than consciously try to will them to happen. I "expected" to see Bob Dylan in my dream once, and I walked into another room and he was in there.

Dreams are generally based on expectations. That's why some people have nightmares and other people don't.

Thank you. Generally when I set out to practice lucid dreaming, I start by keeping a dream log, a notebook by the bedside. On waking I note down whether or not I dreamed and if I did, write down a summary of it. Within a couple of days, I start dreaming more frequently and vividly. The scary aspect starts when I become aware that I am dreaming in the dream, and begin trying to control it. At this point it seems a struggle ensues. I will have to try the "expecting" trick. That seems to offer a way through without the struggle.
(reply to cprasky) posted 24-Feb-2011 1:18pm  
Deliberate control involves a part of your brain that triggers waking. You can wake yourself up by thinking too hard. Expecting is just humming along, being passive about it. You 'just know' someone will be by shortly with your cheeseburger...

Hah - I think reading these comments, and especially yours, helped me to have a lucid dream last night. I was with this guy and put on a Cajun music CD. I started to dance with him, then realized I don't dance. But then realized that this was a dream and I could dance if I wanted to, so did.

Beautiful Asian women wearing white silk blouses with nothing underneath, and for some reason we are in a library in Beijing and I am asking for the section regarding "how to make grilled cheese sandwiches" and she has no idea what I'm saying either because she doesn't speak English or there is no cheese in this country.

Houses. Always houses. Several different recurring houses for my entire life. I think there are about seven of them. It's hard to count houses over 34 years' worth of dreams.

Toilets with little or no privacy... Sometimes very dirty. Not lately though... I haven't had a toilet dream in a while but I had read once that it reflected the need to have some time alone. I guess being a widow now gives me plenty of time...

The other day, I dreamed that I was in theatre when I suddenly gave birth to a premature baby before I went back to watching the operation. After a bit, I decided I should probably know the sex of my baby but when I looked at it (a girl) I realised that she needed an incubator, so I wrapped her in cardboard and walked all over the hospital (and a made up university campus) searching for someone who could prvide one. I got quite invested in the search!

The other day I dreamed about myself going on a tour around the world, and all the way round was a rainbow, the coach flew onto the rainbow and slided down it, we got an ice-cream on the way back, it was such an enjoyable dream, I also dreamed about going on a rollercoaster and my dog jumped off it. But why would I bring a dog on a rollercoaster i thought. Hope you enjoyed reading:)

Last night, I dreamed that I was at a research station and nuclear war was coming. There was a bunker on the station, and I knew that it would be enough to protect us from at least the initial blast. We realised the bombs were going to start falling soon, so two of us got inside the bunker but the rest of the research team were further away. As the bombs were imminent, I turned to my friend and told her that it was too late and that we couldn't open the door to let anyone else in. But then the others came, and I could hear them outside the door even as the bombs were falling. So I opened the door. I hoped that there would be enough time to get them inside, but instead they were swept in by a wave of black-grey foam, the product of the bombs. And I knew it was too late for all of us.

I have such happy dreams wry smile

Lately - outside, streets, strip malls I have never seen before, cities. I took a nap today and had a dream about an L shaped strip mall with a pretty decorated corner face. It was green and tan, and the face was shaped like a triangle.
