VII1bULEO2016 Prison and guinea pigs

 

I’m in some sort of prison. It’s outside, it’s night-time. Three prisoners are made by the guards to make beautiful weapons (e.g. swords) and other things out of lego bricks, but they don’t look anything like lego, they’re incredibly ornate, heavy, and beautiful, like jade, marble, and other similar materials. My friend in the prison has a pet hamster and I’m really worried for them that the guards will see it and punish them. But my friend doesn’t even bother to hide the hamster, they’re really blasé about it. When the guards come over, however, they’re distracted by the cute cuddly bear I’ve made friends with. It’s like a bear cub, but bigger, maybe a teenage bear, very cute and friendly and I cuddle it, rolling around on the floor with it. There are also guinea pigs and other animals around, maybe hedgehogs and/or rabbits, which also distract the guards. One of the guinea pigs licks my hands and then bites it, but not hard enough to break the skin.

 

VII1bMCAS2018 The tiny pig that shat the lemon

 

Well in the dream lots of things happened: I moved house, I was looking after a number of different animals- and one of the animals I was looking after was a very tiny pig. And once we’d moved house the tiny pig was being really difficult- it hadn’t been difficult before it had really been quite friendly- and I remember I was carrying it around upstairs and it was scratching away and biting my hand and I was so annoyed with the pig! I was trying to calm it down and getting really frustrated anyway… until finally it ate this whole lemon and then the pig got really ill- the pig was so small and the lemon was really large for the pig and the pig was just so unwell and I thought I’d killed it and I told my mum... Anyway I carried on trying to look after it, I’m wondering why it’s so ill- and I’ve forgotten about the lemon by this point, that it ate the lemon whole, I just think I need to take it to the vets, and then it suddenly poos out the entire lemon whole. And I realise that the whole time, its whole body must have been taken up the lemon- no wonder it was so ill! 

 

VII1bMCAT2018 Snakes inside cats

 

I was home and my mum was cooking inside, and I went outside and I saw this, at the end of the garden, it was this snake- a big snake sitting on a small tree (I think it was a quince tree). I went back in and looked at the cat, and it had a snake inside it- the snake had taken the cat somehow. When I went back outside the snake was sitting in a big glass bowl on the window sill. And I thought maybe I should tell my mum about the snake. So I went in and told my mum, she said maybe we should call someone. I didn’t know how to tell her that the snake was also in the cat so I just told her to look at the cat- and she looked at it but she couldn’t see it. So then I said somehow trying not to panic her that the snake is inside the cat and then she could see it and suddenly the snake jumped up onto my mums face and crawled away, so we started throwing things at the cat- things like shoes. 

VII1bUCAT2018 Penguin clouds

 

I was shoplifting, I think it was Waitrose, by the sea, I got a salami and micemeat. When I got out the shop the sky was so beautiful- kind of like a blue, turquoise. Somehow there were like these clouds and the clouds looked like birds flying, and they were actually moving like birds and started shifting into birds and slowly transformed into flying penguins. They flew around and landed nearby me and started following me. And I started running, and they chased after me, but in a sort of funny way. 

VII1bEHEP2008 Sheep snowballs

 

Two sheep and two snowballs jumping over the wall of a field.

 

VII1bNTOM2015 Horses lying entwined 

 

Two horses lying entwined, their shoes badly need changing and this has made their legs and hooves misshapen. 

 

VII1bETRE2018 High Definition 

 

It was a very remote beautiful island, but more like a desert. It was like a beautiful high definition Pixar animation. David Attenborough was narrating. There were all these beautiful and strange animals. There was this pink octopus with huge eyes- really cute- and a weird dinosaur with a huge beak and shell skin. I was a character in what was like a film: we went on missions to different islands. There was love, loss, cake... it’s a bit hazy. The dream ended talking to my cousin, we talked about environmentalism and feminism and she explained her passion and that’s why she wanted to make contracts.

VII3bEKAT1979 Ghostly sheep

 

I am on a day out with my family (mum, dad, sister, brother). We drive to a forest, get out of the car and walk into the forest. At some point, I look around and all my family has disappeared. The forest is suddenly eerily quiet. I turn back towards the nearest tree. A ghostly sheep appears directly from the tree trunk. I am immobilised at this point, although I can usually think as well as feel abject fear. I usually would wake up at this point. 

VII1bUAND? Heart-shaped dog 

 

I was on a spaceship except it seemed more like a plane than a spaceship, except it was stationary and I was asking how long it had been stationary and whether we were actually moving or how long we hadn’t been moving and then the next thing I knew I was cradling this very small dog and I had it in my hand and it was kind of heart shaped and I had to hold it to keep it alive. 

 

VII2bMREG2012 Cat sex

 

I awoke and began writing down my previous lucid dream. My cat from my childhood walks in. I couldn’t believe it- I was still dreaming! But it seemed so real. My cat jumped on my lap and I tried recalling its name (Socrates). Then I look up and see a 4 foot tall cat man standing at the door- black fur, green bow tie, walking stick- waiting for me to give it the nod in. It looks like the cat from the film ‘Master and Margarita’. I let it in and it shakes my hand and I say, truthfully, ‘I’m a bit scared’, because its SO REAL AND SO BIZARRE AND I’M SO LUCID… it says ‘me too, but in an erotic way’. After an awkward pause, I asked ‘wanna have sex?’ I couldn’t help it (LD’ing makes one horny). I awoke as I reached orgasm. 

VII1bEYAE2018 Sorting fish

 

I dreamed of sorting fish, the dead ones from the live ones. I was in a murky pond that was killing the fish. I discussed the song ‘Life is a Cabaret’ with my friend. 

VII8bM?? Tortoise-shell life

 

This is actually a series of recurring dreams with themes that overlap that I’ve had for the past 8 years when I adopted two cats called Picasso and Van Gogh in real life who were tortoise-shell cats. And after I adopted them I started having dreams that everything in my house was tortoise-shell patterned: so I had a tortoise-shell rugs, and tortoise-shell duvets.. um, since then the recurring dream has developed into me dreaming that I have a house full of tortoise-shell cats and I have to get the fake ones out and just keep my ones. I have no sympathy for these intruder cats but in real life I would be quite happy to have another cat in the house. 

VII1bNFEA? (angry?) lobsters

 

Utterly surrounded by hundreds of (I think angry) lobsters snapping away at me (I think lobsters are nice in real life and would not angrily snap at me, or anyone).

VII1bE?2018 Would you rather meet a big bear?

 

I had a dream where  from a distance I saw a really big bear in a tree, but when I got closer I realised it was actually thousands of tiny bears! Which was not a good thing as they started chasing me. Later on in the dream I saw a friend and told him and he asked: “would you rather meet a big bear or thousands of tiny bears?”

 

VII1bN?? Vinny the police cat

 

In the dream Emily did some research into Vinny’s past owners and found out that Vinny used to be a police cat… Um, and did police cat work, and now we have a song about it it goes like this:

 

Vinny the police cat dudududududu

Vinny the police cat dudududududu

Fighting crime, saving grannies

Vinny the police cat dudududududu

VII1bMWLA2018 Kangaroo spider

I had just moved into a new house and there were diggers outside the back door, removing dirt that was left over from construction. Then a kangaroo came up to the diggers and jumped around... up the digger's arm and onto its tiny roof. No-one seemed to care. Then the kangaroo got closer to the door and hung upside-down from a thread of silk like a kangaroo-sized spider. I was afraid of it breaking the door and coming inside, but it just stayed outside.

VII8bMHAM? Flying monkeys

I had a recurring dream that I was kidnapped by the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz, and I would never return home.

VII1bE?2018 

 

By the sea, in a classic car. Completely full of green turtles. I asked- why? 

VII1bENAN2018 On point unicorns

 

My dreams are always on point!  

My dream was I saw a unicorn sitting there and she said that you can have a ride across the country. I said “yes!”. It had a flower headband with roses and rainbow dreadlocks. We road across the whole country. But there was a man who wanted to steal her and we had to try and get her back…

VII1bM?2018 The tiny orange kitten

 

I was looking after a tiny orange kitten, a girl. I think my family had just started owning her. Our other 2 (real life) cats live outside but in the dream the kitten had to be kept inside because she was so small and needed looking after. I accidentally let the kitten out of the house and I forgot to check on her. When I remembered to check on her outside, a sickly looking for snatched her up in their mouth and I was really sad and guilty because I thought the kitten was going to get eaten and it was my fault. I let the kitten out. But I chased after the fox and hit it and managed to get it away from the kitten! At that point in the dream I didn’t know where the kitten was but later someone came, holding her. I had a sense that the kitten was a specific one I know in real life. In the end of the dream the kitten was living outside with our other cats and was also black and white.

VII1bERAY2017 

 

We were swimming and we discovered a white seal on a rock. The seal gave me a pearl……

VII1bHBAC2016 Wingbeats

 

I am (in the dream) in my bed on the top floor of a two-floor flat above a pub. In this section, I am watching myself. I hear my housemate Niko calling to me from his room downstairs, asking me to come down. I go down the stairs and the corridor to his room - everything is realistic, as it actually was in our flat. I go into Niko's room, it's looks as usual but seems very colourful. His walls are red and my pyjamas are blue and patterned - all the real colours, but it seems much brighter than usual.

There is a black and white Canada goose on the floor by Niko's bed. The goose and I look at each other.

Then, I am in a totally colourless landscape - thick snow as far as I can see, and a sky the same colour as the snow so you can barely tell where the horizon is. Everything is it's real colours, and everything is monochrome. Now my POV is from my own eyes. The only colour I can see are the cuffs of a jacket (brown) on my wrists, and my hands. 

Ahead of me there is a wide, tall forest, of black straight trees with no leaves, like birches in winter. They form a large, very organised, line on the horizon, all straight lines.. I can see there is a path leading into the forest as I walk towards the trees. But it angles away from me towards the right, in a straight line.

There is no sound - not that I'm deaf, but it's like no sound exists.

Then I hear a sound like branches snapping underfoot. I look up and see a black and white Canada goose flying overheard from my left to my right. It's wingbeats are making the sound. The one goose is followed by a huge flock of them, all of them doing the same thing. There are no sounds you would expect from this scene, only the massive, deafening sound of hundreds of wings making the sound of breaking branches. 

I stare at them, and then I wake up.

VII3bUTRE2018 Dead Whale

 

I find a dead whale in a tunnel. But when I look close it opens its eyes. Shocked at finding it alive I want to drag it into the sea. I go to get my parents to help me but when I get back to the whale someone has taken it to the meat factory. 

VII3bEHIT2017 Squirrel boss 

 

It was in the forest and I got lost. I met a squirrel with a round spiral piece on its head- it was colourful. The squirrel that appeared in front of me was the boss. The other ones were watching me from behind the boss. It was like they were taking me as a slave. They were cute but I felt that they were quite strong.
