So far for me, the cards are hard to read too, and are nothing like the actual one.
I'm glad I'm not the only one!

It's childish perhaps, but fun because it is very real and there are no consequences. I'm always amazed by the sound of it.
I completely understand where you are coming from. I have smashed plates against walls too! LOL! It's amazing. It may seem trivial but it's fun. These experiences are often realistic. I think only a few times there was no sound or it seemed a bit delayed, but, the majority of times, everything went as though it happened in the real world. Awesome!
HAGART wrote:You also use the word 'foul' to mean ending the dream. Or is there more to it? I never heard that term before.
A foul is an undesired exit from a lucid dream (aka phase state). I adopted this terminology from Michael Raduga's School of Out-of-Body Travel. When I record my experiences I tend to just say "the phase" or "phase state" as an umbrella term (instead of, "I had an OOBE, WILD, DILD etc.)
I try to follow what the EDMAR acronym, which I came up with, stands for:
1-Enter; 2-Deepen; 3-Manage/maintain; 4-Action (plan); 5-Re-enter the phase (in case of a foul)
One must aim to stay in the state for as long as possible and a foul does not mean it's the end. Try to re-enter the lucid dream world until you exhaust this option. The minute you start feeling the bed beneath you, "separate" immediately! Don't even think. Just get up! You can always check afterwards whether you are standing in the real world or the phase.

I can't help, but feel there is meaning in dreams and the card may reveal something. I examined the card itself and I think I cracked the code!
It's a secret recipe for spicy burritos!
Thanks for cracking that! It makes sense now. I think it was a warning to go easy on spicy food. I should have taken heed of that. Now I have haemorrhoids.
