Remembering real-life stuff in dreams is tricky. I think it's because parts of the memory system in your brain aren't functioning properly. I have lucid dream 'bucket list', but very often I forget what I'm supposed to do, even when there are direct opportunities and clues in the dream. For instance, I want to play chess against the devil - really I'm curious in a kind of scientific way if that would work. Then I met him in a lucid dream, but I just tried to kill him with a death touch - he wouldn't die! (Imagine my surprise lol.) After I woke up I realized right away that I was supposed to play him at chess. (although, to be fair, I was distracted by chasing cuties too.)>>9577
Yeah, the waking up thing can be a real problem! Or a personal one for me is just being stuck in a black void. I'm just floating there, conscious and dreaming, but there is absolutely nothing around me - happens very often and is sooo annoying and dull!
Recently I did have another fairly good one. I'm in some kind of a courtyard and I become lucid, and I have an axe. I go into wooden shed, but there is nothing there. I turn around, and there is a large gateway, with a two women, one sitting on each side. I pick the one nearest me. She's about 40 and somewhat attractive. She lies on the floor (because I want her to) and I chop her a bit with the axe. I remember seeing the flesh over her ribs open up - very realistic. Then I fuck her. TBH is was a pretty dull dream, and with retrospect, I should have probably just gone through the gateway instead of 'forcing' things so much. After all, doors in dreams are there for a reason!
The one with the crocodile is a good example (one of my best)
I'm in a large open town square of some kind, ornate, maybe gothic carved stone buildings are on all sides. In the middle is a grass covered hill, filling most of the square. I'm realise I'm dreaming and decide to fly to the top of the hill to get a good look around. It's a beautiful sunny day. At the top I take a moment to collect myself, and engage more fully with the dream (pro tip - engaging your senses with the dream fully helps to stop it fading). I reach down and feel the grass between my fingers - it feels totally real. I try to remain level headed, If I get over exPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
