I was at a beach resort, in some random apartments that looked like apartments that I had lived in as a child. Immediately, I know I am dreaming but I want to go along with the dream story line so I let the dream take its course. Aliens were revealed to the world and the population was split. Half of the world welcomed the aliens and the other half figured armageddon. There were groups along the beach that were letting off red balloons in a symbol of welcome to the red lights that blinked across the atmosphere (aliens) but the people who let off the balloons were actually involved in a mass suicide pact and all died.
I was trying to get ready for a party that my friend D was throwing at his mansion (which was sometimes my mansion in other dreams with my time traveling elevator and library) and I couldn’t decide between earrings and other jewelry. I had a pair of red ruby studs, gold leafs that dangled, gold branches, gold claws, arrows, geode studs, and random diamonds. My necklaces were not as varied as my earrings and in the end I chose some stupid hipster outfit and a pair of nikes. As I was getting ready though, I had about a million different notions to buy a bus ticket going anywhere but where I was. But for some reason involving one of my sisters and my mom, I had insufficient funds.
On the beach, I saw my childhood friend T! Where we sort of ended up having a purely physical affair. It was fun, we made a lot of jokes and fucked around a lot. In the meantime, I also met this girl who looked like Shelly from Hemlock Grove playing in a garden, but she was an alien. We were kinda friends. Anyway, I’m trying to get ready for this party and I’m with another one of my sisters on the couch and there was an alien on the balcony. They looked just like us, but it was a disguise. It was a man, and my sister screamed but I was paralyzed. She runs and I end up talking to the alien who was kind and very wise. I pestered him about the Doctor, but his answers were vague. Then he gave me a name of his people and wrote it out on paper for me, the symbols were interesting at the time, but I can only remember one, which meant a child of the stars and it was a square with a star in the center.
At the time, D was just like, FUCK IT, and brought the party to my apartment. So everyone was partying and it made me slightly nervous because I didn’t want anyone to start a conflict with the aliens. So the aliens leave, the party dies down, and Dallas asks me to come over. I end up trying to drive a car with the Shelley/Alien and it doesn’t work out so I call my mom and she says she’ll take me, and D is trying to pick me up because I thought I needed a ride so it was a shit show getting there. And eventually we get to my mother’s boyfriend’s house which is literally 2 doors down from D’s mansion.
So I hop over there and everyone is partying in the pool and it’s kind of a nice hoity toity pool party. D looks like half D and half Roger from American Dad, with a really pretty yellow sun bonnet/hat and a tall glass of something in his hands while he’s sitting in a pool floaty.
I’m trying to get him to come upstairs with me to my time traveling elevator and to the library but he’s being a butt. I meet and speak with a very old Asian woman who is extremely funny and awesome, so I tell her about my secret elevator and try to take her with me to see it. But as we go up the stairs and into the hallway, my elevator isn’t there, it’s just plaster. I am understandably upset.
The old woman leaves.
D comes to me very angry that I tried to show the old woman my elevator. We begin arguing and I don’t remember the exact things that were said. But before I wake up, he tells me that he’s met me three times before in my past lives and each time I’ve made the same mistake.
I lucid dream often, but I don’t understand why or what any of it means. This is probably just my imagination and filtering of thoughts/memories through my unconscious… But is something else happening? Sometimes, I dream I am in a spirit world with ugly creatures and malevolent forces that I somehow always make myself confront, through epic fights (sometimes on mountain tops and other strange dramatic locations), or by simply flying away as I know how to do while dreaming.
I feel very alone with these dreams as no one else I speak to about them understands lucid dreaming at all. Is it all scientific and simple? Or should I be afraid?

Subject: Real-Life Affects Lucid Dream
This is one of the more peculiar dreams of mine; I have never had a dream above limited lucidity. When I want something to happen, it doesn’t, but if something clicks at the back of my mind, my imagination swirls and it happens. I don’t know why I get lucid dreams as I am not very self conscious most the time. I did not intend to get the dreams. I just get them without trying, so I guess I’m pretty lucky.
The dream started out semi-lucid right off the bat. It was the middle of the day, and I was in my school, fifth period social studies. I realized something peculiar was happening. (I didn’t intend to have a lucid dream)For instance, the room was a lot more colorless, odorless, and featureless. The fish tank was missing, as well as all the posters on the wall and projects. That was when I realized I was in a dream, and suddenly I was back at my house at night. I must’ve been reading too much of those WWII books recently, because there were uniformed men at our door.
Suddenly, my senses improved and I heard a voice, “Report immediately or we will be force to comply with orders.” By now, I was fully aware of my sleepiness, cool air, and fabrics of my sheets. This was my first lucid dream in which a real threat has been displayed, so instead of doing what I would do in an unconscious dream, like just stumbling along into captivity, I did what I would do in real life. I made a run for it, smashing through the living room window and sprinting across the streets, which was heaving and cracking and the clouds were red. But like I said, even in a lucid dream, my mind won’t allow things that don’t make sense in real life, or at least things in my control.
I stopped to catch my breath and fell onto the garden floor next to our local library. The garden was less realistic, without any bugs, or imperfections in the plants design. The soil felt moist and I actually fell into another sleep. This one was of waking up into my room, muttering something and feeling relived that it was over. But of course I was wrong. I lie down in my bed, falling asleep again. (In case you haven’t noticed, I fall through many layers during my dreams, since in real life I’m always tired.)
Now I was in a meadow. I don’t remember what happened here, but it was the place where I realized I had fallen too far. A huge screeching sound happened and I woke up in my ‘room’ again. There was a slimy red slug on my forehead, and soon it formed many others which began sliding down my neck. I must’ve lost some consciousness, since I started walking around. I remember stumbling outside, and hearing another screeching sound that brought me back to reality. I willed myself to wake up, and it worked like it usually does. Now I was back in the mound of soil. From here, I lost a lot of consciousness, being shipped into a dome, seeing some nasty human dissections, and being lead down to a building.
Then I fell into blackness for a period of time I don’t remember until hearing a strum, but at that point I didn’t know it was my own alarm, just something in my dream. In the room I was a again, the sound of my alarm fading away, when I became fully lucid and aware of the red emergency button that I was imagining from a alien invasion movie at the back of my head. I leaned over and pressed it, like the main character Chris had done, and the room spun into chaos with people running all over the place. I think I saw some familiar faces, but then I woke up. That’s when I understood the screeching sounds of my door, the alarm, and the wet beads of sweat that had trickled down my neck…I hate it when things in real life affect the dream world. Two things that would make the dreams better:
1: Nothing from real life interfering with deeper layers of dreaming
2: Being able to control things…complete lucidity

I was swimming in either a lake or an ocean or not sure but I had been under water for an abnormally amount of time. Knowing that humans can’t breathe underwater, I realized that I was dreaming. So I kept fucking around in the ocean just swimming and stuff but then an alligator bit my leg. He was dragging me down to the ocean floor but I gave myself super strength and ripped his head right of his body. Then I woke up.

Subject: My mind blew
The very first time I had a lucid dream I was about 10 years old it started with me walking down a street in my neighborhood at night where I never hung out. I asked myself how I got there and noticed that there were no parked cars anywhere. I realized I was sleeping and walked into the street, my left arm lifted on its own instinct and a web flew out of my veins. In an instant I was spider man but it was really hard to web sling so I kept hitting into the buildings. About a minute of zipping from building to building I woke up.

Subject: Anime Game Show
Okay, first let me tell you that this wasn’t like any lucid dream I have seen on the Internet. I wasn’t in the dream, but I had control of all the characters in the dream. The Characters were all anime and in a game show in the middle of the woods. I was controlling all characters to do all sorts of weird things in the game show. The dream ended with a weird avatar sex scene. I guess that is all.

Subject: Bike Riding Samurai Bear
I have been trying to achieve consistent lucidity for a while now and this is one of the better dreams in my journal. It began when I was at a cabin in the woods, with a long, curvy driveway. I realized I had superhuman powers in the beginning of the dream (such as telekinesis and super speed). All of a sudden, a ninja and a bear riding a bike and wielding a freaking samurai sword come out of no where and started chasing me down the driveway. I run with super speed all the while ducking under sword swings from the bear and the ninja.
After running down the driveway, I reach another building. I go in and escape the bear and ninja. My buddy Gerg was in the building, which turned out to be a bar, and was sitting at a table. After conversing with the dream version of my friend, I exited through the double doors in the front of the building, only to be greeted by Mad Max-esque bandits with catapult throwing crushed up cars. They began to fire the cars at me, but I caught them with my mind and threw them back at the bandits. They exploded on contact, and after throwing cars with my mind, I realized I was truly dreaming. I then jumped into the sky and started flying (my favorite lucid activity). Unfortunately I woke up soon after.

Subject: 2D and 3D
This was a very low level of lucidity, but a very interesting dream! As soon as it started I just realized I was in a dream, not really sure why. The dream was like a computer screen, there was a window for a game, and 3 options. Like I said, in the dream even though I knew I was dreaming, it seemed completely normal for my life to be a screen. The options were 2D, 3D, and Real Life. I wanted to do something, but the dream was in 2D mode.
I couldn’t really control anything, just make a blurry character form in the window. I thought maybe 3D would be better, and it was but after a few minutes it went back to 2D. After about 10 minutes I finally became a bit more lucid and realized I should be in real life, and not a game. So I fell backwards through a wall with the intention that when I came out it would look like real life. When I did come out, it was in this room with a girl leaning against the wall. I floated around exploring the room and a hallway that went from it. After I got to a bend in the hallway, it got really bright and I woke up.
