Dream 985

'Lightsaber Pen Distraction'
Date: 25 May 2019
Day 21 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Partially successful Dream Incubation Dream (yey!)

Scene 1: A Garden - Dusk
I was in an outside area and it was dusk. Standing in a bed of flowers, rotating slowly, was a girl I am aware of from social media - XR. I was aware DL (who knows this person) was dating her - this was a recent relationship.

Scene 2: A 'Medical Practice' - Night(?)
I think it was night. I was in an interior which was very dark. I cannot recall anything about the space, other than one small area where there was a dentist's chair and some medical equipment - this was in the middle (front) area of the room - which was quite large and had shelves/dividing walls. The door to the room was directly behind this area - there were some counters too. The space seemed to be quite crowded. DL was seated in the dentist's chair and had a 'seatbelt' or strap holding him in. He was wearing a navy business suit. He was hyperventilating and having a panic attack because he was going to undergo some medical treatment/procedure. There were 2 male doctors present, who I became aware of - they seemed dressed more like businessmen - rich and in smart casual clothing, with confident attitudes and Cockney accents. They were medium build, middle aged white men, and were laughing and joking with each other in a way I thought was unprofessional and made me think they might be gangsters. I knew I had to distract DL so that he could have the medical treatment. I realised the best way to do this would be to show him a new item I had - it was a pen and I was going to demonstrate how it worked. It was designed in space. I took out the pen which looked like a regular blue biro. I pressed a 'button' on the side and the pen ignited with a lazer light - a lightsaber. The blade of the lightsaber was blue. In the dream, I thought it was cool that space technology meant now pens were also lightsabers. Lightsabers were known to me to relate to Star Wars in the dream. DL was distracted and I shut off the pen and put it in my pocket and left. In the hallway, which reminded me of a taxi office, with a service window/hatch and beige walls, was a TV suspended up on the wall, near the ceiling. It was showing a TV show (red velvet curtains were seen - host holding microphone? Seemed like a chat-show?) which was explaining how lightsaber pens were being used to distract patients and victims so that they would be operated on - legitimately and professionally, or criminally. I thought this was my idea and wondered how the news/media found out about my tactic and broadcast it to the public. I felt smug too, because it was a 'genius' idea. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream.



Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 21 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below). I would classify this as a partial success, as there was an extremely clear and obvious Star Wars reference, and a recognition of this within the dream itself, but the dream was not necessarily a Star Wars aventure, as it did not take place within the Star Wars universe - it took place in the 'real world' where everyone was aware that Star Wars is a fictional movie franchise. We had just learned how to make realistic lightsaber technology and applied it to pens. I want a more active. fantastical, exciting dream, actually set in the Star Wars universe
  • On the day of this dream, PB, a friend who I know from prison visits, had posted photographs on Facebook of her new flowerbeds
  • I had been watching a Youtube video busting myths surrounding space - one of them was that NASA had invented a pen that could work in space conditions
  • DL is actually phobic of injections/blood tests so I have gone to the doctors to distract him when he has to have this done, so that he does not faint

Lucid Dream Phenomena: Telepathic Boyfriend?

Recently, I experienced a weird, inexplicable lucid dream-related phenomenon. One of my Youtube subscribers/viewers asked a question about my boyfriend AJR and his ability to lucid dream. I asked AJR about lucid dreaming during a telephone call and the resultant conversation led to this phenomenal lucid dream-related experience. AJR and I are both sceptics/cynics who do not believe in ESP, telepathy of psychic experiences - nothing paranormal or supernatural. However, this experience made me reevaluate whether my boyfriend and I have a telepathic/psychic connection. I am not going to narrate the experience in this post - I have imbedded my Youtube video below, for you to check out! I have also included some other relevant Blog posts and Youtube videos relating to my unique relationship with AJR. I hope you enjoy!

Dream 984

'Love Island'
Date: 24 May 2019
Day 20 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown (Domestic?) Interior - Time Unknown
I have forgotten the majority of this dream as I was disturbed upon waking and did not record it in time before my dream memories faded. 

I was in an unknown interior, which I perceived to be a house, although not one I recall from real life. AJR was present with me. He said something about Love Island

There was some task I was supposed to complete, which was making me feel stressed (unrecalled). 

Scene 2: My 'Dream Town' - Day
I was then in a location which I recognised as being a town I have referred to as my 'Dream Town' (see Additional Notes, below). I knew I had been there before and had a sense of familiarity. I saw a number of Tudor-style houses along an urban street. It was daytime, but I knew dusk was approaching. I was waiting for AJR to join me at the location, which was on the street. I was not sure what our plans were, but I got bored waiting and entered one of the houses. I did not need to knock on the front door - it was unlocked. Inside, it was not actually a domestic house, but a secondhand book shop. Everything was a sandy brown colour (the wooden shelves were light brown and all the books were sandy brown and very dusty). I did not browse the shop, I just stood staring at the floor to ceiling shelves which were stacked with thousands of books. I was aware that it was Carnival Day in this town. My Stepdad entered the secondhand bookshop. We started a conversation, but I cannot recall what was discussed. I was aware I had to get to the 'frozen food store' (see Dream 84, discussed below) which in this dream I knew to be named 'Country Freezer Foods' before it closed. I did not want to walk to the store because I had to walk across a number of grassy hills to get there and it would take me a long time.

I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 20 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below)
  • I have not done a dedicated post about my 'Dream Town', but I have undertaken a 14 Day Dream Incubation Experiment - The 'Dream Town Dream' which explains the basic concept of the 'Dream Town' and lists some earlier dreams where this dream location appears. You can also use the 'labels' at the bottom of the post to navigate to all dreams tagged as relating to my 'Dream Town'
  • The day before this dream, I had a telephone conversation with AJR's mum HT about my love of secondhand bookshops. She mentioned the town of Sudbury, which is relatively close to where AJR's family live. Weirdly, in my dreams of my 'Dream Town', there is often reference to the town being called 'Sudsbury'. A search of this Blog, using the keyword 'Sudsbury' revealed the following results: Dream 84 (20 September 2012) - this dream involved crabs (this is relevant to a phenomenal 'telepathic' experience with AJR, which I will post about shortly, with an accompanying Youtube video); a prosecutor; and working in a pub (which is another topic I was discussing with AJR's mum); Dream 92 (12 November 2012); an article on Dream Deja-Vu & Dream Precognition; and an article on Dreaming & False Memory Syndrome
  • Note that in Dream 84 - the first 'Dream Town' dream where 'Sudsbury' is referenced, there is reference to the frozen food warehouse and everything  being 'brown or sepia toned' in part of the dream - remember, I have not re-read or familiarise myself with any of these referenced 'historical dreams' until after I experienced the current one, and began some research during the recording process
  • AJR currently works in a library

Dream 983

'Party Favours'
Date: 22 May 2019
Day 18 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown (Domestic?) Interior - Time Unknown
I was in an unknown interior, which I perceived to be a home, although not one I recall from real life. I was walking around the ground floor of the house, which had a number of dark corners and hallways, with blank white walls. One of my family members - it may have been my Mum or my Nan - were present and I had a short (unrecalled) conversation with them. The overwhelming feeling of this dream was having responsibility or a duty which felt stressful and I wanted to avoid. I felt anxious. At some point in the dream I realised that I was supposed to be preparing party gift bags for a party I was planning. I had the job of selecting items for the party gift bags. I suddenly had the 'good' idea of putting a single (faux) diamond stud earring in the bag, and realised this would be very successful. I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 18 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below)
  • On the day of this dream AJR and I had been discussing our plans for when he is released from prison - he said that he did not want a large party immediately upon his return home
  • I own faux diamond stud earrings

Dream 982

'Job Interview'
Date: 20 May 2019
Day 16 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown Interior - Time Unknown
I cannot recall this dream particularly well. I was standing up at the start of the dream and I had a piece of paper in my hand. I think there was writing on the paper, but cannot remember anything else. 

I then sat at a long, polished wooden table, in between my Mum and her friend, CC. Another (unknown) dream character entered the room, which appeared to be empty other than the wooden table. The dream character was a young white male - in his 20s - ordinary looking. I cannot recall any other details. I was aware that this was a job interview and I wondered why I was allowed to be present, because I was not part of the interviewing panel. I felt like I was an intruder, but no-one was asking me to leave. I cannot recall what questions my Mum and CC asked the interviewee/candidate.

Dream 981

'Antiques Shopping'
Date: 17 May 2019
Day 13 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Antique Shop/Hotel - Time Unknown
I was in an antique shop - which might have been a bric-a-brac store as it looked quite messy, dusty and dishevelled. I was eating a vanilla ice cream cone, while an older white female dream character with grey hair showed me a large decorative vase, as if she was trying to sell it to me. I cannot recall what was said. An old white male dream character, who also worked in the antique shop, went over to a piano and began to play, but I cannot recall what he performed or whether he was any good at playing the piano. I then realised that the antique shop was also a hotel and the female dream character was CC, a former good friend of my Mums. There was some reference to RR (someone I went to high school with) and her father (who is married to my cousin HM's paternal aunt). I cannot recall the context. 

There was some reference to Pewdiepie (Felix Kjellberg), although I cannot recall if he actually appeared in the dream or was simply referenced. I cannot recall the context of this element of the dream.

Scene 2: My Bathroom, Norwich - Time Unknown
I was then in my bathroom in my flat - staring at the bath, which was filled with dead white flowers. I wondered who would clean these up.

I cannot recall anything else about this dream - I know I have forgotten a lot of detail because I remembered more immediately upon waking, but did not record the dream immediately. More details may resurface, as is often the case when I initially have strong dream recall. If I remember anything else, I will record it below.

Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 13 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below)
  • On the day of this dream I had been eating ice cream
  • On the day of this dream I had been watching Pewdiepie on Youtube and had recently been discussing him. Appearance-wise, he sometimes reminds me of AJR as they have similar colouring/complexion and to some extent, face shape
  • On the day of this dream, a male Instagram follower/friend (due to fact I have had previous conversations with him online) told me he wanted to learn the piano so he could play for me
  • On the day of this dream I read an online post (on a Facebook group) about an American woman who called the police because 2 young girls stole 2 tulips she had received on Mother's Day - the post was ridiculing her for her pettiness

Dream 980

'White Bikini Weight Loss'
Date: 15 May 2019
Day 11 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: A Ship - Day
I was on a ship which was all made of wood - like a very traditional old pirate ship. I was on the top deck, but there was still some kind of ceiling. I could see the sea stretching out around the ship, meaning we were sailing. 

I was wearing a white bikini. There were 2 middle-aged white male dream characters - sailors wearing traditional sailor suits (white and navy). They were weighing me. I was aware I had lost a significant amount of weight and was in good shape. 

Scene 2: The Field Outside my Flat at University, Norwich - Day
I was then on the field outside my flat on my university campus, running down the slight slope toward the path. I was chasing a rabbit (the campus is known for having a huge wild rabbit population). I became aware that I have had a previous number of dreams about this location - in the dream, I thought: 'this location often features in my dreams' - although I did not become lucid (consciously aware that I was currently dreaming). 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream. 

Additional Notes:

Dream 979

'Drama!'
Date: 13 May 2019
Day 9 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown Interior - Time Unknown
This was more of a series of dream fragments, rather than a cohesive and well-recalled dream narrative. I have forgotten a lot of the detail, as unfortunately I did not record the dream immediately upon waking. 

All action appeared to take place within an interior, which seemed to be dark blue - or it had a dim blue light. I cannot recall. I cannot remember any other scene. 

My Nan was a dream character and there was some unrecalled dialogue with her. She was wearing a white jumper. My Uncle GC was either referred to or was present temporarily in the dream.

I was then sitting at a long table with my cousin CAJ. I knew I was working in my student welfare job and I had to go and perform a welfare check on a male student. We were both writing something on pieces of paper. I remember seeing that I was using a blue felt tip pen and my writing was much larger than usual. In the dream I was annoyed that I hadn't been writing neatly. I then thought that events (as they were happening in the dream) were strongly connected to the current James Charles drama/scandal, although it is not clear how I knew/why I thought this. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream. 

Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 9 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below)
  • The James Charles drama/scandal has been all over the media recently and I have watched a large number of Youtube videos about it/him

Dream 978

'Stepdad in a Chair'
Date: 11 May 2019
Day 7 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown Domestic Interior - Day
My former dog Kelli, an Alsation (from when I lived at home with my parents in Pine Grove, Sheringham) was running in front of me down a long, brightly lit corridor. I was in my family home, but it was not one I recognise from real life. I was with a friend - a female dream character, who I cannot recall to describe. The impression was that I was my teenager - or at least, younger - self. My Mum said that my Stepdad was not at home and would be out at work. I am not sure if I actually saw my Mum, I think she was leaving for work herself, and was calling out to me from downstairs. My friend and I then wandered around the house, entering what was a lounge. We were shocked to find my Stepdad slouched in an armchair. My Stepdad did not resemble his real life appearance. He was a bit younger (not much), had the same, dark hair (but much more, as he is balding and has it shaved down to a minimum in real life), had a deep sun tan, was skinny and was wearing a white vest. I am not sure if I registered how different he looked in the dream. My Stepdad started a conversation with my friend and I, but I cannot recall what was said. I remember thinking the room was very dark because the curtains were drawn. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream. 

Additional Notes:

Dream 977

'Plans to See A Band Play Live'
Date: 10 May 2019
Day 5 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: A Seaside Location (A Pier?) - Day
It was a sunny day and I was in some kind of kiosk (or small marquee?) at the seaside (I am not sure whereabouts exactly, as I only saw the interior of the kiosk/marquee and do not recall any specific details about my location) - I think I was on the end of a pier because I did see that the floor was made on wooden boards, which reminded me of this. I was with NN and we were looking at a poster on the wall/side of the marquee which was advertising a live performance by an (unrecalled) band, which had 4 male musicians in it. NN pointed at the poster and said we should go and see the band. I agreed, even though I was not very enthusiastic about the prospect. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

Additional Notes:
  • This is Day 5 of my current Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure (click on this title link to read my introductory post and see my accompanying Youtube video, below)
  • I am currently planning on making a Youtube video which involves a pier - I may make a Blog post about this too, as it is an interesting, unexplained phenomenon, also involving lucid dreaming and my boyfriend, AJR
  • A couple of days ago, while on a bus travelling to see AJR on a prison visit, I was listening to a track on Youtube by a band I have not often listened to - I remember thinking NN had been to see this band live (The Coral)


Dream 976

'Surprising Exam Results'
Date: 8 May 2019
Day 3 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown Interior - Day
I was in a room, which I believe might have been an educational institution - present were a number of dream characters, some of which I think were fellow pupils from my high school. I recall RR and JF being present. There was also a teacher - an older white female dream character, with grey hair which was tied back from her face. She was handing out exam result transcripts. When I received mine, I realised I had passed the majority of my exams, but my results were lower than expected. In fact, my exam results were lower than my peers' (which surprised me as these dream characters were not academically successful, whereas I have always been). I wondered if I would be able to go on and study for another course with my low exam results. I was somewhat worried. I cannot recall what else happened in this scene, but I feel like I have forgotten some of the details.

Scene 2: My Nan's Back Garden, Sheringham - Day
I was then standing behind the shed in my Nan's back garden - alone. I realised I was able to apply for a PhD in English Literature - I even had the idea for my thesis (I cannot recall what it was, but I remember feeling excited about it). I then realised the course was an undergraduate degree, not a PhD. I knew I already have an undergraduate English (and History of Art) degree, but knew I was able to do another degree in this area, as long as it was only focused on English Literature. I felt relieved to know what I was going to do next with my life. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

Additional Notes:

Dream 975

'Adopted Twins'
Date: 7 May 2019
Day 2 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Partially Successful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: My University (Undergraduate Law Seminar) - Day
I was coming to work in my job as an Associate Tutor, teaching Law at my university. It was a revision seminar (these being the work I am currently doing in real life). My academic supervisor, who is also head of Criminal Law (the class I am teaching in the dream and real life) had provided the class with a large amount of cannabis, which we were permitted to smoke in class, in order to 'open our minds'. This was very exciting to me. I entered the classroom and saw the cannabis on the table which my students were sitting around. One male student (not a particular student I recognise from real life, but I do recall in the dream he had mid-brown hair and was white, approximately 18 years old) was handing out the huge buds of cannabis and I hoped there would be some left for me. 

Scene 2: My Nan's Living Room, Sheringham - Day
There was some kind of scene in my Nan's living room, where I was laying on the sofa with a boy I know, who 'dated' my friend AK - his name is EW. EW was wearing neon green tracksuit bottoms and a white vest. Suddenly I became aware that there was a white blanket over top of us. EW adopted a position where he was above me, but not touching, still in a horizontal position. I became aware he was holding a large green dildo, which he was putting down the waistband of his tracksuit bottoms. This confused me. 

Scene 3: My Bedroom, Norwich - Time Unknown
I was then sitting in my bedroom with NM, my manager in the legal firm where I am working as a prison lawyer. There was something I thought I had done wrong, but I wasn't quite sure what. NM then told me that I would be responsible for a new case, which was in the field of Family Law. It was my duty to go and get newborn twins - a brother and sister, and remove them from their home and take them to a place of safety. In the dream, I was aware that this was very similar to the plotline involving Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars, although I did not consciously link this to my current Dream Incubation Experiment - it was more like my dream self accepted events as reality, but noticed the similarity to the fictional Star Wars story. I agreed with NM that I would do this task, but wondered why I was being asked to do it. I looked to the space under my desk and saw a pile of legal files/documents, which were coloured in a light buff brown. I was aware these were the case papers relating to the twins. 

I was then introduced to a woman, 'Donna' who was standing in my room with us, but at the same time as it looking like my bedroom, it also appeared to be outside, with Donna standing behind a concessions stand. I can only recall that Donna was in her 30s, white, brown hair and average build. She was wearing a red and white striped apron over a business suit. NM said: 'Donna will teach you how to do the Magistrates Court'. Donna handed me a small white piece of paper and I was aware that she had 'learned a trick' which helped her win every case in the Magistrates Court. I knew NM preferred Donna to me and felt jealous. 

Scene 4: A Family Home - Time Unknown
I was then in a family home, which I believed to be the house where the twins were. Someone - an unrecalled dream character who I am not sure if I actually saw, or just heard from behind me - was telling me I had to take action. Inside the house were some children - I recall there were at least 3 - and recall seeing there was a son and daughter in the family. I am not sure of the gender of the other child. I was sanding in the living room of the house, which was very ornately decorated, with expensive, artistic objects and antiques/heirlooms. I cannot describe it better than that, although at one point, the room reminded me of my Nan's second downstairs reception room. I was talking to the little girl, who was about 4 years old. She was black and dressed in a fancy party dress. She demonstrated playing the violin and I thought she was very talented for her young age. I then realised that I was not in the house where the twins lived. The children's parents entered the room - at first they were middle aged white lesbians - then they became a black heterosexual couple, who were dressed as barristers, which made me aware they worked in the legal profession. I spoke to the parents, but cannot recall what was said. I also spoke to the family - now with grandparents or elder relatives - out on the street - this being a suburban residential street, later after I left the house. It was dusk and we were standing under a streetlight. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

'Broken Mobile Phone'
Date: 6 May 2019
Day 1 of Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure 
Status: Unsuccessful Dream Incubation Dream

Scene 1: An Unknown Domestic Interior - Day
I was in an unknown domestic interior - which in the dream, was my home. It was not a house I recognise from real life, but it was a very normal, ordinary house. There were 2 dream characters present - my Mum and her (formerly) very good friend, AB. In the dream, my mobile phone was broken beyond repair - in particular the phone screen was badly cracked so that the glass was falling out. I was sitting on the floor of the lounge, holding my phone. I crawled on my hands and knees over to where AB was sitting on a red sofa. I showed her my broken phone, but I cannot recall what was said. I was the standing in a hallway - in the doorway, looking into a hall, which made me aware that this was a one-storey house, as the bedrooms led off from this hall. My Mum was standing there. I cannot recall what was said here either, but I remember thinking it was very dark in the hallway considering it was daytime.

Dream Incubation Experiment - A Star Wars Adventure

To celebrate the relaunch of my Youtube channel (and this Blog), I am conducting a new Dream Incubation Experiment which I will document on both platforms for my viewers/readers. I hope you will follow along with me and try it for yourselves!

Quite simply, dream incubation is the concept of prospectively choosing what you want to dream about and then training your mind to make your chosen dream happen. It is often referred to as 'planting the seed' of a dream in your mind.

In the spirit of updating and streamlining my content, and to make my tutorials/experiments easier to follow, I am simplifying my Dream Incubation Technique. I have been practicing dream incubation since my early childhood, when I first became interested in dreamwork. I was always fascinated and excited by the idea of choosing the theme or subject matter of my dreams. 

In previous Dream Incubation Experiments, I attempted to combine dream incubation and lucid dreaming. I think this unnecessarily complicated what should be a relatively easy aspect of dreamwork. For this reason, my new Dream Incubation Experiment will focus solely on the objective of incubating a chosen dream theme successfully. If lucidity occurs during my Dream Incubation Experiment, this is an added bonus! 

My chosen Dream Incubation Theme is - A Star Wars Adventure.

I will purely concentrate on incubating a Star Wars dream - I am not going to be prescriptive or specific here. The first day of this Dream Incubation Experiment is today - Monday 6 May 2019.


Methodology:


  • Every night, before sleep, I will use a mantra - 'I will have a Star Wars dream and remember it when I wake up'. I will recite this repeatedly in my mind as I am laying in bed, falling asleep. This will focus my intention on dreaming about Star Wars.
  • I will periodically and regularly think about Star Wars throughout the waking day and try and expose myself to as much Star Wars-related content as possible - this is relatively easy for me as I follow a lot of Star Wars-related media online.
  • I will use two cues/prompts - a written reminder (which will be read each night before sleep and will be kept under my pillow) and a small, metal replica of the Death Star (which will be kept in  visible spot beside my bed) - see below for an image of my Dream Incubation Experiment cues/prompts.
  • Every day upon waking I will reflect on my dream memories and then record/interpret and analyse each dream, both on this Blog and in regular Youtube video uploads.

    Dream 973

    'Working for Two Law Firms'
    Date: 5 May 2019
    Scene 1: A Law Firm - Day
    I was working in the criminal defence/prison law firm I am working with in real life (I work from home on a consultancy basis rather than being based in an office). I think I was in the law firm offices in the dream, although I am sure that the other workers (dream characters) were people I worked with when I last worked in a criminal defence law firm (around 2008ish maybe). I do not recall much other than walking around the office, which I think had a royal blue carpet. I remember seeing a number of filing cabinets and piles of paperwork and that the office seemed very untidy and dimly lit with a number of corners and separating walls sectioning off the one big room. It did not resemble any office I recall from real life.

    I had been offered another job in a second criminal defence law firm, which meant I would be working in two law firms at once. I decided to take on the second job as well. I knew I had a lot of work commitments and was not sure how I would balance them, but I felt positive that I would be earning a decent income doing something I really love. I cannot recall anything else about this dream, as it was more of a dream fragment than a full dream.

    * When I first met AJR I was working in criminal defence and prison law, and I always mourned the loss of that particular job as I loved it so much. I always wanted to return to criminal and prison law, and I know that when AJR and I started dating, this was something he wanted me to do too, as we discussed my future career at length. I then miraculously got offered a job working for a firm (with a name which matches AJR's real last name!) working in this area. This means AJR is able to help me grow my client base from within prison and I know he loves telling people that he is dating a prison lawyer. AJR is himself a qualified prison lawyer and we plan to open up our own legal aid practice in the future. I feel like my life has come full circle, but in a very positive way! This dream may be an indication that I am currently feeling overworked generally.

    Dreams 965 - 972

    Dream 965
    'Bleeding from Bodily Orifices'
    Date: 3 April 2019
    Scene 1: An Unknown Interior - Time Unknown
    I was with other dream characters, many of who I cannot recall, other than my Mum, who I had a conversation with. I was in an unknown interior, which may have been a house, although I did not recognise it from real life. I went to use the bathroom, and was shocked and horrified to find that when I finished peeing and looked into the toilet, there were a number of long, thin, red snakes - which were still alive and writhing in the toilet water/urine. I was very scared, knowing that I must have some terrible disease or condition. I left the bathroom/toilet area to find my Mum and tell her about the snakes, which I believed had come from my urethra or vagina (I was not certain). I found my Mum, and at this point became aware that I was bleeding heavily from all of my bodily orifices, specifically, my vagina, eyes, nose, ears and mouth. I was terrified and unsure as to what was happening to me. My Mum did not seem concerned at all. I was asking if she could take me to the hospital, but she told me that she would not and I would have to deal with the bleeding. The blood flow was heavily and I was panicking. I saw myself in the third-person perspective approach a mirror in a dimly lit room, which appeared to be a nightclub toilet - not necessarily the same toilet I had been in earlier. In third-person perspective, I saw myself lean towards the wall-length mirror, mounted above a row of sinks (this is why I thought it looked like a nightclub or public toilet). I opened my mouth to inspect my teeth, which were still bleeding heavily, so that the blood was pouring down my chin onto my chest. I looked vaguely like I do in real life, but also somewhat different, although I cannot say what was different, other than subtle arrangement of my facial features. I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

    Dream 966
    'Cheating with a Blonde'
    Date: 7 April 2019
    Scene 1: An Unknown Domestic Interior (my Nan's House, Sheringham?) - Day
    I was in an unknown interior, which resembled my Nan's house in Sheringham to some extent, but I am not sure where I was as there were a number of differences in how the interior looked. I cannot remember a lot of detail about this dream upon waking, but I did recall one scene in particular. I was walking into a room, to find my boyfriend, AJR, who was free from prison. We had been dating and were still in a committed, monogamous relationship. However, I was aware that he was being 'stalked' by a young blonde woman (white, long straight blonde hair, tall, slim build). This woman was in the room as I entered - it seemed to be a bedroom, as later I realised there was a white bed as well as an armchair in the room. There was some conversation between me and the blonde woman, which was not friendly - I recall telling her to leave AJR alone as he was my boyfriend and she did not know him. The woman was adamant that she wanted to befriend AJR, and I was becoming angry with her as well as jealous and insecure. She felt very much like a threat to my relationship.

    Some other action occurred in the dream, I think. I then remember having a conversation with AJR about his blonde stalker. He promised me that he was not interested in her and loved me. We were in a different part of the interior (or another location) at this time, as I recall walking back into the room I had originally been in at the start of the dream. The blonde woman was sitting in the armchair. I remember that she was wearing blue jeans and lots of woven bracelets on her wrists. She was crying hysterically. AJR entered the room and he came over to comfort the blonde woman, by sitting on her lap and stroking her hair. I was infuriated by this and told AJR to get up and leave the woman alone. However, AJR began to passionately kiss the woman in front of me. I cannot recall anything else about this dream. 

    * In real life AJR was trapped into a 'friendship' with a blonde woman, LP, who was delusional and fixated on having a relationship with him. She is not attractive like the younger woman depicted in this dream, and AJR was trying to untangle himself from her influence, as she was a very toxic person he became (platonically) involved with for various reasons. He is now no longer in contact with her and she has made various attempts at damaging him in revenge, despite the fact she is an abusive, cruel and obnoxious individual. There was another blonde female, who may have been referenced in this dream, but she is not an issue in our current lives and therefore, I believe the female dream character reflected LP.

    Dream 967
    'Lost in Prison'
    Date: 16 April 2019
    Scene 1: A Prison - Day
    I cannot recall a lot of the details about this dream. I do remember that I was always in the prison and there were other dream characters present, who are known to me in real life, although I cannot specifically remember who. My Mum may have been present. I was looking for AJR, who was serving in this prison. For some reason (perhaps I was there for work?) I was allowed to go onto the wings where the cells are. I was certain AJR was with another woman (a prison officer?) and cheating on me, which made me desperate to locate him. Myself and the dream characters I was with had been given free reign of the prison, which most most certainly would not be possible in real life. I was on an upper floor, which had a large glass wall, allowing me to look down onto a lower landing, which was were the cells were. The upper floor was a big empty room, with these glass walls, which gave it the appearance of being an observation gallery. Prisoners were not allowed in this area. I was looking down at the landing with the cells, trying to spot AJR. This was impossible, as I could only really see the tops of the prisoners' heads and grey regulation tracksuits, meaning AJR did not stand out at all. I was shouting his name, but I am not sure if any of the prisoners were able to hear me. I was moaning to my accompanying dream characters about my inability to find AJR. I was aware the prisoners were getting ready to have dinner. 

    * The day before this dream I had been at HMP W (where AJR is currently serving), for work (I am a prison lawyer again). My Parole Board hearing had been very long, and as I was being escorted out of the prison afterwards, I had to pass by the exercise yard. It was around 16:00 hours and the prisoners were out in the exercise yard as I walked past. I was hoping I might spot AJR (this would have been weird and awkward, given I was at work and probably unable to make contact with my boyfriend in this way, without irritating the prison officers in the vicinity. I could not see AJR amongst all the other prisoners and did not want to stare too much as I walked past. I did hear one prisoner shout out: 'There's your girlfriend!' although AJR says he did not hear this and was not sure if it was directed at him/me when I subsequently told him. However, one prisoner (who had previously seen AJR and I on a prison visit) had recognised me and later told AJR he had seen me dressed in formally in a business suit, mistakenly assuming I worked within the actual prison. 



    Dream 968
    'Count Dooku's Horseriding Cats'
    Date: 19 April 2019
    Scene 1: An Unknown Interior - Time Unknown
    I was in an unknown interior and there was a ginger cat (or perhaps cats?) present. One of the cats was really big - about the size of a labrador dog, and very fat. The cat jumped into my lap, while I was sitting in the corner of a room, on the floor. I hugged it. 

    ED2 appeared in the dream. I am not sure of the context of him appearing and cannot recall specific details.

    I was then in another area of an interior location. It was dimly lit and had a row of chairs facing a counter with a glass/plastic screen. Behind the chairs was a big, wall-length window which gave the location the appearance of a waiting room - perhaps an airport departure lounge. I sat on one of the chairs and found that I was sitting next to Count Dooku (Darth Tyranus) from Star Wars (Christopher Lee - 1922 - 2015) - he was definitely Count Dooku and not the actor Christopher Lee, as he was dressed as the character and I was aware within the dream. I began talking to Count Dooku and the conversation was friendly. Suddenly, a small horse (or pony?) walked into the waiting room area. There was a ginger cat sat on the back of the horse. It was a different cat from the one I had been cuddling/stroking earlier in the dream - this was clear to me. Count Dooku told me that the cat on horseback belonged to him. I cannot recall anything else about this dream.

    * The day before this dream ED2 had randomly changed the theme of our inbox conversation to a 'watermelon' theme, although he did not write anything in a message. I have not chatted to him in some time, so this 'interaction' appeared odd. Around the time of this dream, I had been discussing the character of Count Dooku with my friend DL while we were stroking rescue ponies which live in a field near my home. 


    Dream 969
    'Small Round Biting Witch'
    Date: 22 April 2019
    Scene 1: An Unknown Domestic Interior - Night
    I was in a very dark domestic interior - it was night. At one point, I was looking out of the window of the lounge, and could see across to the other side of the street, where standing in the shadows outside a normal-looking house opposite was my friend DL. I was aware DL was attempting to send a small, round witch to come and attack me. I was terrified and wanted to do whatever I could to stop the witch being sent to me. 

    I ended up being sat in a dining chair in the lounge, which also appeared to be a kitchen and resembled the old student house I lived in while I was at the University of York from 2002 - 2004. The witch was sent to me. It was about th size of a football and completely spherical - it appeared to just be a head, with a wide open mouth of razor sharp teeth. It could float or bounce up in order to reach me. It closely resembled the Langoliers from Stephen King's The Langoliers (1995), other than it had eyes. The witch floated/bounced up to my lap, and I was able to do something to delay it from biting me (which I knew was the intention). I was able to 'control' what happened, although not in the sense of this being a lucid dream (it was not, it was a normal, non-lucid dream) - more like I could control events within the dream, as if this was possible in real life. I found myself standing in the doorway of the dream, talking to an (unrecalled) dream character, who I knew in the dream. I knew that the attack by the witch was inevitable, so although I could control events in the dream, I was aware this was temporary and the attack had to happen at some point. I therefore decided to let it happen, and try my best to withstand the pain. I convinced myself that this was 'a game' which I had to beat. I sat back down in the chair. The witch again floated/bounced up and locked it's teeth into my left hand. There was a sharp pain, but I remember thinking it wasn't as painful as I anticipated, and I was able to bear it. The witch attack wasn't as bad as I had feared. DL was smug about this, as if he had 'won'. I cannot recall what else happened in this dream.

    * On the day of this dream I had been participating in an online (Facebook group) discussion about Stephen King and his past drug addiction/alcoholism. I have previously discussed The Langoliers with DL, quite some time ago.


    Dream 970
    'Twin Daughters - Peach & Unnamed'
    Date: 28 April 2019
    Scene 1:An Unknown Exterior - Day
    It was daytime and I was outside in a suburban area with AJR. We were walking on a pavement, alongside some regular looking houses. It was a sunny day. AJR and I had to go to a hospital (I cannot recall actually going to the hospital in the dream) to go and collect our newborn twin daughters. In the dream, these were our biological twins which I had given birth too, although in the dream it did not appear that I had actually just given birth. The dream appeared to skip to a scene where AJR and I had already collected the twins. We were walking in the suburban residential area, trying to decide upon names for our daughters. I suggested 'Peach' for one of them, and then struggled to find another name which matched with this. AJR could not think of a name for the second twin either, and we were frustrated. I cannot recall much of the dream content, but as I was waking from the dream I began to envisage a square object, which was sort of like a small velvet box - but also confusing, for a reason I am unable to articulate. Looking at this 'box' which opened up in a weird way which would not be possible in real life (sort of like a 'puzzle box' from the movie Hellraiser (1987)) gave me the idea that the second twin could be named 'Pearl'. I woke up with this thought in my mind. 

    * AJR had mentioned that he would like us to have twins, but preferably twin sons. Around the time of this dream I had been watching a Youtube video from Jenna Marbles, documenting her new rescue dog ('Bunny'), and attempts to find a suitable name for her. Jenna and her partner Julien already have 3 dogs, one of whom is named 'Peach' (this being the other female dog). 

    Dream 971
    'Stretching Disease'
    Date: 29 April 2019
    Scene 1:An Unknown Exterior - Day
    It was daytime and I was in an unknown exterior location - it seemed as if it was near a dock - I am not sure if I saw the water, or just assumed it was there. Something about the area reminded me of Lowestoft in Suffolk and also Southbank in London (the way it looked before it was renovated) - there was a lot of concrete and some areas where you would pass through tunnels/underpasses made of concrete (see below images of Southbank for reference). I was wandering around, somewhat aimlessly, as if I was waiting for something, but I am not sure what.

    Scene 2: A Dilapidated Interior - Day
    I then found myself in an interior, which was like a dilapidated 'trap house' - or perhaps even a large shed. It looked partially built - or falling apart and very dirty/messy. I cannot recall what specific items were in this location, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The walls were a dirty white/beige and I remember seeing a lot of black graffiti (it seemed like black spray painted tags, nothing especially creative or skilled) on the walls. I was with two male dream characters - I may have known them in the dream, but I do not know who they represent in real life. I am unable to describe one of them, because I cannot remember what he looked like. The one I did remember was tall and slim with dark hair, wearing a dirty white T-shirt, which made me think he was unclean. His hair was very messy. I was talking to the two males and I was informed - or was somehow aware (cannot remember) that the tall, slim dark-haired male was a farmer and suffered from a 'stretching disease' which made his neck and arms stretch to dangerous lengths at certain times. He was stressed because he knew his neck was going to stretch again soon and this was a medical hazard which could kill him. He reached his hands up above his head and was able to touch the ceiling, which indicated to me that the stretching was about to begin. I felt sorry for him. I then became aware that there was a bat in the corner of the room, in the area where the walls meet the ceiling. The bat looked a bit like a cartoon bat, rather than a realistic one. It showed me it's fanged teeth and said (or I 'heard'): 'Johnny Depp is a waste of your time'. In the dream I knew that this meant that I should not waste my time meeting Johnny Depp as he was not of interest to me, so I should forget about him. While in the dream, I 'recalled' a previous dream that I had experienced in real life, involving a sex scene with Johnny Depp. This was a lucid dream - Dream 332 - 'The One Where I Have Sex With Johnny Depp (Lucid Dream)' (17 December 2014). However, within this dream, I mistakenly 'remembered' the Johnny Depp dream wrongly, mixing it up with two separate dreams I have had when experimenting with nicotine patches (I will link these posts below). I cannot recall what else happened in this dream.

    * On the day of this dream I had seen a debate on Facebook which stated that white male celebrities are more likely to avoid sanctions or repercussions for abusive behaviour - Johnny Depp was referenced by the person posting this opinion. In this dream, I recalled previously experiencing a sex dream with Johnny Depp, but conflated the events of that dream with dreams which took place during a 'Nicotine Patch Dream Experiment' - these were lucid dreams, and both involved aliens of some kind. Interestingly, upon researching those dreams (by clicking the links contained in the Nicotine Patch Dream Experiment post), I noted that one dream refers to 'peach' - which is pertinent considering my recent dream, Dream 971 - 'Twin Daughters - Peach & Unnamed'. See Dream 340 - 'Alien Faces & Peach Cakes' (24 December 2014) and Dream 341 - 'Aliens, Rape & Kim Kardashian' (27 December 2014). Note that all of these dreams occurred around the same time, which may account for why my subconscious conflated them as one dream. These dreams feature Tanya Burr (her attempts to break into acting and movement away from a Youtube career; and her recent separation from her husband) and Kim Kardashian (the fact she is expecting her fourth child via a second surrogate; and her plans to undertake the California Bar and work as a criminal lawyer, which is my profession) - I had read news/media stories about both of these female celebrities on the day of this dream (although I would not have made this connection had I not just read these old dreams today, for the purposes of making this post). I had also discussed baking with AJR - and baking (peach cake) was a theme of Dream 340. Weirdly, while looking at my blog comments, I noticed that on 23 April 2019, a reader had commented on Dream 332 - 'The One Where I Have Sex With Johnny Depp (Lucid Dream)' quite randomly (I am not sure how they came across this old dream as I was unable to tell from analytics for that date). I was not aware of this comment on the old dream, as I had not accessed my blog in quite some time at this point (as evidenced in my absence from posting!)



    Dream 972
    'Ring Shaming in a New Flat'
    Date: 4 May 2019
    Scene 1: An Unknown Domestic Interior - Time Unknown
    I was in a large flat, which appeared to be student accommodation on my university campus, although it did not resemble any that actually exists in real life. There were a number of dream characters present - I cannot specifically recall, but it appeared that they might be former classmates from my high school in Sheringham, as NH was present and I think some other females were too. It seemed as if a party was occurring. I walked around the flat. It was very clean and new looking and was decorated entirely in white. The main room had a seating area near to some floor to ceiling windows at the far end. The main part of the room was a fully fitted kitchen with a central breakfast bar/counter. A hallway led off from this kitchen, and this was where the bedroom(s) were. I looked into one bedroom and saw dream characters were present there. 

    I went to the seating area where I found a number of dream characters and 'Madge Bishop' from Neighbours, as played by Anne Charleston. She was holding two engagement rings - one which was an emerald surrounded by diamonds and other virtually identical, but with a central sapphire. She was mocking these rings, claiming them to be 'cheap' and poor quality. I saw a close-up of these rings and believed one of them (the sapphire one) to belong to my aunt, VF. I then 'remembered' that in real life I was due to move accommodation at university (I get free accommodation due to my voluntary work in student welfare, and in real life have been trying to work out where I will move to, my intention being to live alone). I realised this new apartment would be the ultimate flat to move into, given the luxury kitchen and fact I could bring my washing machine. I then realised the flat already had a washing machine and this made me happy. I cannot recall anything else about this dream, other that at some point I had noticed the screen of my mobile phone was badly scratched and the cracks in the glass were worsening. meaning I was unable to use my phone.

    * Stress of having to change accommodation and lose my conveniences played a part in this dream. On the day of this dream I saw two relevant Facebook posts - one from a friend who posted a photograph of her new washing machine; and another in a group which was criticising people who shamed low-cost engagement rings. When I was a child, my aunt VF did have a diamond and sapphire engagement ring from her former husband (HM's father, RC), which was passed to me via my Mum. I am not sure where the reference to Madge/Anne Charleson comes from. Shortly before this dream I dropped my mobile phone and noticed a small scratch at the bottom of the screen.
