Most significant experience in 2yrs

January 15th, 2012

Hi There,

I’ll set the preceeding events because i believe they contributed significantly to me having this experience..

On Friday afternoon i was fairly tired at work and my Children and Mrs were out at the kids Nana’s house.. I got home about 6pm, showered and thought i might again use this as a chance to project.

I lied down to ready for projection and started with muscle relaxation. Once i found my body relaxed i thought to meditate for a bit but it wasn’t long before i was asleep.

An alarm i had set woke me at 8:05pm but the kids and mrs weren’t home (not unusual on Nana visits and I wasn’t concerned at all).. i thought i’d skip dinner and go back to bed..

The Mrs work me up a bit after 11pm on coming home.. we stayed up together for about 1 hr after which i couldn’t go back to sleep cause i’d nearly had 5hrs sleep already.. I watched some of a tv series i had on the computer and went to bed about 1:30am knowing that sleeping 5hrs and having been awake for 2.5 hrs would give me a good chance to project in the morning..

I had quite some trouble relaxing and being able to go back to sleep. At one stage I nearly got back out of bed again until i was more sleepy though while still in bed i felt a shift of relaxation in my energy and stayed in bed..

Experience starts

I become consciously aware but all i can see is blackness.. I remember that i may be in a projection experience but am having difficulties with my astral vision.. I work on this by attempting to open my astral eyes to see.. Difficulties persist.. I have the feeling that i am in a dream within a dream..

Although I can’t see, i can feel walls and objects and as i feel my way around in the dark i notice some light appearing.. I continue into the light and it opened up in a scene…

Here i have a scene where i’m at my parents farm in the daytime.. That scene goes for a while and then i’m feeling the darkness decending again.. again i feel my way out of the darkness to another scene or work on my astral eyesight by attempting to open my eyelids.. This was the most significant astral type experience i’ve had in more than 2yrs.. Through this experience i was in a scene.. left the scene.. felt myself return to my body or close to my body at times and worked my way into another scene again about 5-7 times.. In one of the later ones i went to my Dad and he was laying on a bed quite unwell. He has heart problems and i was asking him if he was going to die soon.. While with him i was very aware of what was happening and thought about shifting to Late Dec 2012 or January 2013 as that is a goal i remind myself of should i get to have enough awareness of the astral process.. Though i stop this idea as i believe it is more important to stay with my father and go along with what is currently happening… It didn’t feel like he was going to die real soon but it did feel like he is currently suffering in his body..

At one time i feel into the astral landscape around me (current house scene) and wonder about my physical body and where it is located.. I feel the whole scene shift and becomes more closely aligned with Real Time Physical Reality.. I wonder if i am now closer to the RTZ?

In another later scene i find myself at a kids park in a nighttime scene.. it’s a fairly happy scene.. It is here i still have vivid memories of all the experiences and places i have visited thus far and begin to feel like prolonging this astral experience of going in and out of scenes is likely to come to an end..

I remember Robert Bruce’s advice to keep experiences short in order to improve recall.. I shorten this scene and it comes to an end..

End of Experience

Unfortunately instead of getting up to write down the experiences in full detail i decide i feel too tired and go back to sleep.

If i had of gotten up and wrote it down i’m sure i would have had a more vivid recall of the experience. As it stands though i still had a fair memory of the experience but in less detail and can still (in waking life) feel the memory of what it was like finding my way in the darkness and returning to or close to my physical body and re-projecting..

I’d like to ensure in the future i would get up and record these experiences upon waking instead of returning to sleep to improve recall..

Thx,

Dean

Return to Lucidity

January 14th, 2012

I’m not sure why but i hadn’t even had a lucid dream in months, and i’m also not sure if it’s the new growth i’m going through or was the start of the new year approaching but for the past 3-4 weeks at least I’ve been really feeling to get back into more lucid dreaming and astral travel practice..

I’ve increased my meditation practice and returned to keeping a journal of anything dreamlike i can remember..

I think the combination of this and my desire led me to have my first lucid dream in months.

Sunday 8/1/12 -

  • i woke at 7:00am
  • Meditated until 7:32am and straight back to bed with the intention of projecting. Got some good hypnogogic imagery and scenes appearing but nothing i was able to enter into
  • After 20min i give up and roll over to rest, not sure if i’ll just rest and get up soon after, or will go back to sleep.

Dream begins

I find myself at my work. A few things are quite off.. without too much detail i kind of let the “offness” go for a bit but eventually i realise i’m dreaming. I wonder to myself where i physically am. Because from memory i had given up on projection/lucid dreaming and had gotten up out of bed.. But i was dreaming.. Was i asleep at my work? How is this working for me to be in this dream? Where am i physically?

Almost like a reflex as soon as i confirm to myself that I AM dreaming I float into the air and am able to fly.

I look for something more interesting to do than be at work.

I leave the immediate area and go out the back.. I watch a scenario there for about 10sec but decide to move further along.

It is a nighttime scene. I look in the distance and across some water there is a Casino and some big bright flashing lights. Kind of seems interesting but don’t fancy i’ll find much with real depth over there. Instead i see a boat chugging down the river to the left and decide to fly and land on it. My first flying attempt fails and i fall back to the warf/ground after 10metres or so, but i know if i aim for the boat and try again i will make it.

I fly and almost overshoot my mark but as i get close to landing on the boat it adjusts (slows & speeds) for me so that i can land on it. I land! As coming close to landing i notice the boat was now circular in shape and reminds me of a small UFO floating on the water. As i landed i notice most of the crew were small toys. Toy people with varying appearances about 15cm tall. Sitting near one of the walls of the ship was my 5yr old son. He seemed quite inward and a bit saddened, he did talk to me but the scene began to break down and i woke up in bed on my side..

End of Dream

The time was 8:52am

I had probably been asleep 1hr and the dream felt to go for about 2-3min after being lucid and about 3-5min before being lucid.

Since having this dream i wondered about the part with my son and wondered if he needs some more help from me with his emotional direction… I think this could be true..

Cat’s Consciousness Projected into my dream

April 24th, 2011

I’m not 100% sure on this one, but it was an interesting one to think about anyway. This experience happened 3 weeks ago. I dreamed that the index finger on my left hand, was nicked. The small cut got bigger and bigger and eventually that finger was barely holding on by skin. I started trying to find someone to get me to the Emergency Room, because I knew that I had only a few hours to get there or else they couldn’t put the finger back on. In this dream, my husband was busy in the upstairs bathroom and couldn’t take me to the emergency room, so I decided that I’d just do without that finger.

I woke up wondering what the significance of the dream was, and decided that maybe it meant that small annoyances, if I let them bother me, would become bigger and bigger issues.

My husband went upstairs, and I heard him yell. Our cat in the middle of the night had tried to jump to the bathroom window, and the window slammed shut on her left paw. We ended up having to take her for a visit to the vet, and had her leg splinted. She’s doing pretty well now. Hopefully in a week or so the splint will come off.

I found this dream interesting since my dream involved my left hand, a visit to the ER and our upstairs bathroom. I think the cat projected her consciousness into my dream to try to get me to wake up so we’d find her. If it wasn’t intentional on her part, I at least think the connection we feel to our animals, comes through when they’re hurt.

Meditation Produces Spinning / Falling Sensation

May 4th, 2010

My new meditation schedule is twice a day and I am hoping to see some results. Hopefully by writing about results will help to solidify their reality and as always give me data to look back on after my brain has long forgotten.

I went to bed around 10:30 PM last night and meditated in a seated position for about 15 minutes, became tired, switched to a laying position and fell asleep.

I woke up around 5:50 AM feeling tired. I got up and went to the restroom and came back to bed and I seemed to be less tired after getting up and walking for a few minutes. I put on my headphones and started listening to Brain Sync – Brain Massage and began to meditate by running the mantra ah-lum-baa-dee-dum – ah-lum-bar-dee-dum through my head. The goal was and is always to eliminate thoughts, and I know this intellectually, however knowing and doing (or should I say not doing) are two different things.

The Brain Sync track starts off with background binaural beats, soothing music and a river and then as the track progresses the music gets softer and softer until it’s completely gone, leaving only the sound of water.  The meditation technique and this track seemed to work well together. The music got softer and so did the complexity of my mantra until all that was left was the sound of flowing water and a faint remnant of my mantra, as if my mind became something separate from me.  A few moments later I let the mantra go and latched onto my breathing which was getting more and more shallow. When thoughts found their way in I simply observed them and went back to focusing on breathing.

Before long I noticed that my awareness was slipping away and I had to keep that from happening by quickly directing my focus back to breathing. Every time I would come back to breathing I would have a spinning falling sensation and a faint tingling throughout my body. Each time I would pull my awareness back the sensations would get stronger. I would have just let myself fallen asleep if it had not been for several meetings at work this morning. Normally, at this stage if fall asleep, I will hit strong vibrations and have a full blown OOBE.

I finally called it quits  at 7:15 AM to prepare for meetings.
