LD4all Quest 81 [December]: The Spirit of Giving VII
Author: pasQuale; Adapted by Rhewin

Each month, on LD4all Lucid Dreamers Unite we have a new Quest to explore your LD's in a fun way.

The Spirit of Giving VII
Has it really been another year? For me, it's been one of change and excitement. I hope all of you have enjoyed 2012 as well, but it's not quite over yet. There's still a tradition we on LD4all hold dear, and it's one we'd like to extend to you.

Holiday music fills the air, buildings are lit up brightly with colorful lights and in homes around the world Christmas trees are spreading a little extra holiday spirit. It's also the time of year when we get together with our family and friends and exchange gifts to show our love for one another. The same is true with our family here on LD4all.

Since 2006 we've been exchanging present with each other in our dreams and this year the tradition lives on. In your dreams, find another dreamer and give them a present. Maybe it's someone from LD4all, a RL loved one or just a dream character you're fond of. Don't celebrate Christmas? Not a problem, just give a gift from the heart and celebrate in your own way.

This can be done in a regular lucid dream, but maybe you want to go a little further and attempt a shared dream. For some extra fun, team up with other dreamers on LD4all and have a little in-dream gift exchange with your friends. Who knows, maybe they'll have a little something for you too?

Have fun, and don't forget the gift wrapping!

To complete this Quest and earn your wings

  • Become lucid wink
  • Give a gift to your buddy or to someone you want to give a gift to.
  • Note: The gift must be wrapped so the receiver has to open it.
  • bonus: receive a gift back from your buddy
  • Post your dream in this topic (a link to your DJ is allowed but you have to post in this topic that you have succeeded)


Please be very clear if you feel you have completed the Quest or want to try again - pasQuale will only give wings if you feel you have been succesfull in completing the Quest, the wings are a reward for yourself.

pasQuale will give everyone who earned it their wings at the end of this Quest, so please be patient


Bonus Option: (not required to earn wings, but much more fun!)

What could be better than just giving a gift to another dreamer? Why, having a gift exchange, of course! Of course giving is better than receiving, but receiving sure feels nice tounge2 .

Find someone to share your gift with here on the forum (you can do this through PM or chat). Announce your partner here on the Quest topic so we know who's with who. After that, find your buddy in a lucid dream and give your gift. Then, receive your present from your friend. The point is for an exchange, so to do the bonus option you will need to do both parts. However, it doesn't have to all be done in one dream.

It is perfectly fine if you receive your gift in a non-lucid dream, but the dream you actually give your present in should be an LD. (This is a lucid dreaming Quest after all )

Giftshopping in your dream world:
  • Reach out in your pocket/bag and know your gift is inside.
  • Enter a shop and get something you like, have it gift wrapped..
  • Summon or materialize the gift you want to give.
  • Shout: "please let the perfect gift for [name] appear"
  • Expect the gift to be there when you turn around. Then (of course), turn around.


Finding the receiver
Note:You need to personally give the gift yourself. No sending it by mail or messenger!
  • Enter an elevator and press the button with the name of your buddy to get there.
  • Stand in front of a door. Know that behind the door you will find your buddy. Open the door and go inside.
  • Summon your buddy. Call out his/her name.
  • Ask someone in your dream to take you to the one you want to give your present to.
  • You could also set up a meeting place, in that case use any of the above methods (or your own method) to travel to the meeting place.


Preparations/Incubation
Before going to sleep or while doing your LD incubation technique (WILD/WBTB/MILD, etc):

  • Set your mind for this Quest
  • Decide what you will do to find your gift, decide who you will give it to (if you haven't teamed up with a buddy) Do you already know what you will give or will it be a surprise gift? How will you find the gift receiver?


Post your attempts, whether you feel you succeeded or not, in this topic smile

Be sure to announce who you have teamed up with in the topic!

Last but not least: have fun everyone! :D

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Joyous Kwanza! Have a wonderful Winter Solstice! Best wishes to all!




Current LD goal(s): Defeat Xander in our lucid duel!

I came real close the other night. I have a hard time getting DCs into my LDs, but I finally had a couple in my LD. I reached into a drawer to pull out a gift, but there was nothing there. However, I could feel an invisible square object in my hands. I tried to give it to the DC, but every time the invisible square got close, my arms would stop and I couldn't give the square to the DC. I gave up, but I was so close. Actually, come to think of it, invisible wrapping paper would be pretty cool. nervous


Current LD goal(s): Have a LD every night; Have longer and more vivid dreams

I did not succeed in this quest because the recipient did not open the gift, but I got very close!

I am walking down the hallway in my parents' house when I realize I am dreaming, without any particular lucidity trigger. I turn back to the living room where I find my mom and dad sitting on the couch. I remark how wonderful it is to be in a lucid dream, having not had one in a long time, and monologue about the vividness and perfection of this living room dream scene. Then I remember having read about this quest so I give it a try. "I have a gift for you," I tell them, and try to decide how I will create it, keeping in mind that it must be wrapped. I focus very intensely on my hands and try to will the gift's creation. The first attempt fails, but on trying again' I manage to conduct a blue electricity between my hands. The product of this blue energy is a small gift about the size of my palm. It resembles a small brick of tea wrapped in white paper, which I gave to a friend this year in waking life. I hand the gift over to them, but I don-t remember which of the two takes it.

I ask them, "Do you have something for me?" I see that they are getting distracted by something going on in the hallway and I see that my lucidity and the dream itself are fading. I try to will their attention and a gift from them, telling them I will spin around and then be back. Spinning puts me into another dream and I instantly lose lucidity, only remembering this dream at the end of the night.

Well I have no idea if it works or not ^^

I was already in a LD for around 15 minutes fighting a group of people and finally a dragon, but to reach the dragon I walked with my female lieutenant through an empty wedding room. Then I just thought "Oh I also have a quest to do!" So I decided to stop to offer a gift to my lieutenant. So I looked for a gift in my pocket and found a wedding ring, which I decided to offer her. The lieutenant then morphed into my girlfriend and I offer her the ring. But then I thought it was not okay cause the gift had to be wrapped. So I ran in the wedding room to find something to wrap it. I finally found nothing so I took a bip empty yogurt pot and I closed the top with a slab that I found on the floor... And then with the ring inside I gave my awesome gift to my girlfriend saying "Do you want to marry me" she quickly took it and I went out of the room to kill the dragon

Should be. I m waiting for the new one, as I guess I won't receive anything in this one...

I assume there are less people than earlyer answering this topic, this may be why they don't do it every month this year...

Completed the task. I became lucid, found some ribbon and wrapped it around what I think was a pencil, but may have actually been scissors. Either way, I wrapped the object with the ribbon and gave it to a DC. They were super excited to receive a pencil (not really). lach1
