I almost had a WILD (wake induced lucid dream) last night, I got in bed trying my lazy version of Lost Truth’s tips on increasing your chance(s) of lucid dreaming, and so I kept repeating in my mind: that I will see my hands in a dream and will realize that I am dreaming and that I will realize that I am dreaming.
At some point I started feeling my body starting to go to sleep but I was still conscious, I started to feel an almost vibration-like feeling as my body probably began to paralyze, and once I realized this I was going to try to make this a WILD.
But this process feels pretty weird so I accidentally broke the process when I failed to ride this process into a WILD because it just felt too weird, and I started to move before my body could completely paralyze itself.
I then decided to try again but I probably just went to sleep normally, who knows, maybe something interesting happened that I can not remember.
I know that I had one or more dreams but I forgot them when I woke up to use the bathroom, and I went back to sleep and I had the dreams below.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the night, and I was in a hotel room with all of my family except for my brother CC and his family.
Most of us were in bed but most of us were not sleep, my mom was watching television from her bed, and my brothers KD and TD were doing something that I can not remember and they were making too much noise so the front desk called us to let us know that someone had complained about the noise.
I told my brothers KD and TD to be quiet, and then my mom had the television too loud so I asked her to please turn down the television but she did not so a receptionist from the front desk knocked on our door.
So I answered the door, the receptionist was my aunt SE to my surprise and something about her made her seem younger, and she walked into the room to check on something in the bathroom and she gave us some advice on avoiding noise complaints.
There was possibly a little girl and several baby pets of some kind (maybe kittens or puppies or something like that) that followed her, I briefly talked to my aunt SE, and then after she was finished checking the bathroom we said goodbye but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I was riding in an automobile with someone who was driving, maybe a man with light-color skin with brown hair who maybe seemed somewhat businessman-like.
We were driving through a slightly fictional version of the city of D taking a route through the neighborhoods near CS Bank on our way to the road in front of it to make a left turn, and the man driving was talking to me.
The man saw a woman he knew who had several young daughters who were slightly different ages and they were very young kids following her in a line as they walked along the side of the road, the daughters were wearing traditional probably Middle Eastern and Islamic-style clothing so they were wearing hijabs and clothing that covered the rest of their bodies, and they were wearing bright summer colors.
They looked so cute and happy walking in a line wearing those outfits, I had never seen anyone wearing clothing like this in the city of D, and so it was especially interesting to see little kids wearing outfits like this.
The man mentioned something about the woman and maybe feeling sorry for her about something that I can not remember, and I remember feeling a bit sorry for them because they would probably face discrimination for how they dress and for possibly being followers of Islam.
I personally thought that it was interesting and cute and nice to see people wearing something different, but I knew that some people in the city of D would have negative reactions to this.
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that I was inside a building that was partly like a store with a small circular bar in the middle that served food and drinks, and the only worker at this bar was an old man with gray and / or white hair with long ancient maybe Asian-style facial hair wearing maybe traditional Asian-style (maybe Japanese) clothing.
I was on an aisle looking at some shelves when a man walked over to me and he started talking to me in English with an accent that I did not recognize, as he talked I tried to figure out what kind of accent he had, and he seemed a bit like a cunning rogue-type person who probably made money in various ways (like being a tour guide / bodyguard, selling information, et cetera, and maybe some illegal activities).
It seemed that he would be on the lookout for tourists and visitors to this city, he would probably start a conversation with them, and then try to get a job and / or something else to get whatever he wants at the time.
Another man walked over to talk to him at some point, and they both spoke in an unknown language with each other and English.
I tried to figure out what language they were speaking but they were speaking too low, too fast, and they were talking in a way where they would stop after only saying a few words before switching to English and back like they were trying to make it hard for anyone to figure out what they were saying or even what language they were speaking.
The only words or words that I could hear was something that I heard the rogue-like man say several times that sounded like maybe mi niño or minino but I am not sure, and so I wondered if they were speaking Spanish when they would switch to the other language.
After their conversation the rogue-like man walked me to the bar, he seemed to be one of the regulars and some of the other regulars were there who seemed to have different jobs (one may have been a bounty hunter, another just seemed to like to drink a lot and hang out there, and I can not remember most of the others), and we sat down and they all started talking.
While they were talking a muscular male centaur with light-color skin with long maybe yellow / brown hair with no shirt who slightly reminded me of Fabio Lanzoni galloped over with two attractive women with long hair frozen to his arms (they were alive and okay), he was the ladies man among the regulars and how they were acting it seemed like maybe some kind of sex thing gone wrong, and so he galloped to the bar to hang out until the ice thaws out.
The other regulars joked about this and the old man who worked at the bar served us food and drinks, the old man did not really say much or anything but I remember him smiling like he was possibly planning something, and all the regulars started to eat and drink and have a good time.
I assume that maybe the old man drugged our food and / or drinks because I lost consciousness, and when I woke up the building was destroyed (maybe burned down) and most or all of the regulars were dead but I was alive and the old man was alive.
We seemed to be in the middle-of-no-where in an area that seemed ancient like where a mead hall would be (maybe this was partly a mead hall-like place) or an ancient Japanese village or something like that, and then there was a scene of the villagers having a funeral or something.
The dream jumped in time and there was a new building there now, they rebuilt the building, and the villagers had an opening ceremony.
I remember the old man smiling and looking happy about having a new building and something about his smile made me feel that he probably was behind the fire and the death of the regulars, I wondered if he had drugged us and set the building on fire trying to make it look like an accident and tragedy so that the villagers would build him a new building and feel sorry for him, but I woke up before I could investigate this or anything.
