What sorts of places do you go? In the last few dreams I've had, the settings have always been very large, indoor, multipurpose complexes. One of them was a hospital, dormitory, collection agency, real estate agency, disco, and many bathrooms all in one building.

If I am not in wide open spaces, wandering, exploring, or following a path, I tend to be in schools, or school settings. Sometimes houses that I have lived in during my past.

Cars, or other forms of transit between two places, are often settings for some of my dreams.

I have a list of dreamscapes that I always seem to visit every time I have NDs. I'm trying to map them out the best I can and it's going surprisingly well. I'll list a few of the ones I see a lot below.

There's an island up on a bunch of high cliffs. It's really fun to jump on the rocks here and bounce to the top. The beach here seems to have a ton of people, but the occasional sea monster tends to wash up on shore and terrorize them.... eek2

There's this waterpark out in the middle of nowhere that I always visit during summer or on vacation. My mind heavily connects it with taking a break. There's nothing around it for miles and it's really small, but the rollercoaster is rediculously large (goes around the whole park) and is reall, really fun to ride. grin

And there's a prison that I have never failed to visit once a year, right before school starts. I always manage to escape from it the last chance I get, but it gets harder every year. Wonder if they'll execute me when I graduate or something. overspannen

I have a lot more, but there's no way I can post them all. As dor my LD, they almost always start or somehow end up teleporting me to my house, so they all take place at home.

All my dreamscapes are just stupidly random. Most dreams I remember having have been set outdoors, in educational related places most of the time. In the odd special dreams though I've been in a cinema, a marcial arts training hall, and even a random house on a sunny day! smile

(The last one I mentioned was the setting for one of my not-so-often lucid dreams)

I havn't actually thought about this, but many of my dream have taken place in a forest and next to a lake/ocean.

I'd say about 50% are forest dreams, 10% city dreams and 20% water dreams and 20% other random places.

There have also been times when I've gone from forest setting to water setting. Like getting on a boat or swimming. Once into the water, land usualy dissapears and leaves me in the middle of the big blue.

I should write this down as a dreamsign.

For me all of them so far have been in twisted and often radically altered versions of places i have been to or settings im familiar with in some way or another, lets think...

Dystopian wastelands (love em and always read books on that and such)

Normal places like rivers or sports fields that have been warped in some way like terraces that descend down a cliff nearby or the river breaking its banks and still flowing with the force of a raging torrent over thin grass with only a millimetre of water

And houses of course.

Cant wait to start building my own dreamscapes..

...also wouldnt this belong in Lucid Adventures?

I quite often find myself in places I always call "buildings". For instance, like warehouses, or "bases", like in videogames. Places where nobody lives, and many people visit. Like workplaces. Funny, because I don't work, never have. And it's not so often in school, although sometimes it is.
I have many corridors in my dreams, I guess because I am usually moving around alot.

Ofcourse, I often find myself nearby my home or in it. My favourite dreams are when I'm someplace new and stange.

I've never been at home but quite a few times I've been at school.
Otherwise it's usually some random outdoor location...

I'm usually at my grandparents' house. It's become a dreamsign for me. I like dreams where I'm in a place I've never been before. Not only do they make me lucid, I like exploring.

The by far most occurring place in my dreams is my parents' house and the area around it. I moved completely away from it 6 years ago, and see it around twice a month, but it still takes up most of my dreams. The next places on the list are the mall where i work, my grandmother's apartment, my sister's area and then my own apartment!

Sometimes, those places are distorted in ways that are the same in several dreams. There is for example:

-a river and a bridge close to my old school
-a hotel by the sea next to my parents' house (usually to my great frustration)
-rock slides and floods between the small town and the house
-several layers of railway lines to cross before the war memorial

I still haven't noticed these distortions in any other area than around my parents' house!



Current LD goal(s): To bring back a song
