The lucidity in this dream was a bit pathetic, but the kool thing is that in the day a person, John Jr. (check out his blog here), had commented on my second lucid dreaming post. He mentioned being able to make people in his dream disappear. I had never tried that before and thought that I would like to. That very same night I gained lucidity, remembered about his post and thought to try and make someone disappear. While it was a failed attempt, I did at least have the recall to make the attempt. I’m very happy about the quick turn around time.
I had last seen the clock at 4:20am. When I awoke from this dream it was 4:40. (I wake up way too much throughout the night)
There was a children’s book being read online and for some reason my brother-in-law wanted me to look at the book. We were watching the video together. During the reading he said the pages were dirty and stained with something. I recognized the book as something I had read before. It was a book with lots of characters. In waking life I do not actually know this book. We were sitting in the backyard of the house (it was not an accurate depiction). The computer was on a desk outside and we were looking at the video of the children’s book. A man came walking down the dirt path behind us and I waved to him. He wanted my brother-in-law’s attention. He had some questions for him about some technical stuff. Then the dream shifted.
All the sudden there was some non-human entity attacking. This thing inhabited people and animals and then shot strings or webs out of the people at other people to attack them. I remember running to the front of the house. To the main street. In my mind there was this collective consensus of isolating the victims that had been possessed by this non-human entity. If it was not close enough to any other people than it wouldn’t be able to find a new host and would die. That was the theory. Once I entered the street my perspective shifted. I no longer existed and instead was watching a detective who was now the main character of the story.
Then there were those weird web things shooting out of a car. I didn’t understand. I thought it had to come from an alive source. We were all wrong. The entity thing could possess anything. The car shot the webs out of the steering wheel at the driver. The webs completely covered her in a cocoon. She was shaking and suffocating. The detective went to her and tried to save her. Tried to pull the webs off so she could breathe. But the detective couldn’t get to her fast enough and the woman died. After she died she turned into a zombie. I noticed 2 other people were trapped in a cocoon web thing together. They died too and then also turned into zombies. The weird entity thing then had mind control over these zombies.
The dream switches back to first person and the zombies are after me. There are 4 of them. I have some kind of stick or something and I’m trying to hit them and knock them out. They keep falling down, but then getting back up. They are moving slow like regular zombies. I take note of this in the dream. But for some reason in the dream I think, why won’t these damn zombies stay down? (of course they never actually do in the movies unless you stab them in the brain). I am trying to run away from them and my body is moving slow. I can’t run. I think, ugh, this always happens to me in my dreams. I’m always trying to go fast and I can’t. Why is it it happening now? Then I start to wonder why the zombies aren’t acting like normal zombies. Then I think, what do I mean, normal zombies? Zombies aren’t real. Why the heck are there zombies right now? Then I realize it’s a dream.
Of course, gut reaction, I fly away from the zombies. But one of the zombies flies after me. A woman zombie. She starts talking to me and harrassing me. I try to fly away faster, but she’s always right next to me. I can’t get away. Then I remembered, oh yea, John Jr. said he makes people in his dream disappear. I can make her disappear. I looked at the zombie and said “Get out of my dream, Poof”. (I actually said poof. He mentioned how when things disappeared they would go ‘poof’ so for some reason I said this in my dream). She didn’t disappear. She teased me and laughed at me for my failed attempt. My vision started slipping. Everything was turning grey and going in and out of focus. I didn’t realize I was waking up and didn’t remember to stabalize the dream. I tried again and shouted, “Get out of my dream! Poof!” She was still there. She taunted me some more. Laughing at my inability. My vision was getting worse. It felt like I was spinning. I felt dizzy. Everything was gray. I could hear the zombie, but not see her. I tried again to make it disappear though, “You go away! Poof!” I failed again. I wondered if I was having such a hard time making it disappear because I couldn’t see it. Then everything went black, back to grey, black, grey, black, grey. Everything was kind of shaking. It was a very rocky transition. Throughout this I was thinking, this is a different kind of waking up than normal. And then I was awake.
Analysis – after 3 lucid dreams, in all of them I immediately started flying. In 2 of them someone else could fly as well. In all 3 of them I was annoyed by the things that weren’t in my control and kept popping up.
I had a separate dream later in the night that also contained some weird non-human entity. This one though was more like a benevolent spirit or angel or something. It’s interesting to me when all my dreams throughout the night contain similar themes.
Anyone else have that experience of the same theme showing its face all night throughout your dreams?
