I took a nap this afternoon, after getting off the phone with another sorcerer and advising her to take time to review the basics of dreaming attention while lucid, which is exactly what I did. I figured I should take my own advice if I'm going to be giving it out, so I looked at my hands then away and back at them until they were totally normal and in focus, then I looked over at a group of children which gave off a strong inorganic vibe, and slowly walked over to them. I had no intention of engaging them as I wanted to see if their presence just automatically interfered with sober focus on honing my dreaming attention, and it did. The kids were playing around trying to look human, but it took me a second to figure out what was wrong with the picture, and then I realized that they were all cyclops, the cutest cyclops you ever saw, but freakish nevertheless. When I was standing next to them I also realized that their energy was a bit off from the usual type of IB's we deal with, so I started moving away from them, at which point they started biting me softly. I thought to myself, "screw this," and made myself wake up. Conclusion, don't mess with IB's if you are trying to do dreaming exercises to solidify your attention, they are a distraction. Only mess with them when you are going to their world to absorb the energy, but if the IB's feel "wrong" somehow, that is because they are, so get away from them. Our local inorganic beings feel very magical and weird, but in a good way, it is something your body just knows.
