Although keys can be symbolic, I think in this case it was just the same old stuff I tend to keep in my pockets when awake and it was what I subconsciously expected. However I didn't examine them further. I knew immediately that they were ones I don't recognize and there were about 5 of them on one key ring. Perhaps if I examined them and asked myself what does this one open, how about this one... it would have been more meaningful.

Or I may have simply assumed this one is for the front door, this one is for the mail box, this one is for the car.... Sometimes my lucid dreams are very mundane without much meaning at all, and I try not to attribute meaning to them and perhaps that is why there is no meaning. Because I wasn't looking for meaning.

However, if I reached in my pocket and felt a sharp pain and then pulled out a snake that had just bitten me.... that would certainly have some meaning for me to ponder. But in this case, I think I was just being a boring lucid dreamer and the things in my pockets were average, everyday, mundane things.

Now that I have thought about it more, what I should have done was kept searching. After all the usual expected stuff was pulled out, who know what I would have found. Pockets in a dream are bottomless and I should have just kept going. There is always next time. And if I remember to do this again I'll post what I find or even if find nothing at all. This needs it's own topic, not because the other suggestions are unimportant, but because this is going off tangent, and if I ever do this again I will create it, but not 'till then.

I used to think the mundane things in my dreams, those every day life things were meaningless but over time Ive come to see that those are very often symbolic for me too. Its taken me years of studying my dreams to see that.

Now that I have thought about it more, what I should have done was kept searching. After all the usual expected stuff was pulled out, who know what I would have found. Pockets in a dream are bottomless and I should have just kept going.


Thanks.. that is good thinking. I would be far more interesting to pull unexpected stuff out. I like the idea of someone giving this subject its own thread.

"Whats in your dream pockets?".

- I have a lot of things on mine which Im too scared to do in real life or just dont have the chance to. eg Firewalking, sky diving from a plane, ride a lion.
- I have a lot of quest goals too.. find a unicorn, find the end of the rainbow to find the lepracorn and his pot of Gold :D (Dream quests can be so fun!! The idea being dont just manifest the things immediately before you but have the thought you need to look for them like do a quest to find them).
- Then I have go back in time quests.. eg prehistoric, ancient greece, ancient egypt.

As a child I loved Enid Blytons Books.. The Folk of the Faraway tree where there was a lands which changed at the top of a magic tree. So one of my dream goals is to find a seed for a "jack-in-the-beanstalk, plant the seed and then grow the beanstalk but at the top of mine will be lands which change... different land at the top each time I dream. I wonder what my mind will come up with when I do that dream challenge (I love fantasy stuff)

Now, my list is getting bigger and bigger. At least for one year I don't have to worry what to do in my LDs and I can always repeat my favorites.
Thank you very much.

@taniaaust1
Study what you are wearing from head to toe.

Observe your clothing in enough dreams to work out if your subconsciousness has its own favourite clothing it likes to dress you in?
(I really like this idea, one big reason, You can do this in all your LDs, this would just take 2 minutes, and after that I would make a list of my clothes in LDs)

Walk on Water
This would be really fun.

I just thought up another LD challenge which I think could have some interesting outcomes.

Go and visit a LD zoo and see if there are any strange animals there. I know in my non lucid dreams I get a lot of very strange animals coming into them, so I wonder if I went and visited my LD zoo if that would be full of weird animals. (I dont tend to get animals usually coming into my LDs).

Shrink yourself to an atom, and experience the wonder of the chemistry world and atomic interactions and feel the electrical charging between you and other atoms. This idea is a whole new dream-life on its own.
Dream inside a dream inside another dream- Inception style.
Create a planet with a civilization inhabiting it, either consciously or unconsciously and see what they are doing/planning to do.

I would highly recommend swimming underwater for anyone who hasn't experienced that yet.

Don't forget that doing ordinary things in dreams can be quite enjoyable. A few I've enjoyed are: tasting a cup of coffee, being hugged by a dream guide, grabbing tree branches (I do this quite often especially as I'm levitating up through the trees), bleeding (a little gory), hiking on a trail in the wilderness, sitting a table with a few DCs just enjoying the one-way conversation, picking up dirt, picking up gravel, picking up just about anything and feeling it, the list goes on and on.

umm thanks. That made me think that I'd love to experience the ease of swinging throu trees like monkeys do or like Tarzan on vines.
...........

Ive also added "Hyjack a DC" on my list of things I want to do after reading one of lucidintheskys experiences where she forced a DC to speak to her after threatening to make it do something it didnt want to do. Im going to force my wont talk to me DCs to speak to me too :D
