Just when I thought that I have reached a pretty high level of knowing about the basics of the multiverse and the layers of the spirit, I had an unusual desire yesterday that I didn't know existed at all. At least I've never had it.

Yesterday I was at a Greek festival and the music, and the dancing was so captivating that all of a sudden, I strong desire ran through my mind and body that I wanted to know what it is to be Greek and to grow up with this culture. I wanted to be one. Then in the next minute, I realized that I wanted to feel the core of ALL cultures in the world, to feel what it is to have grown up and been a part of every nation of the world. But the interesting thing is that I wanted to feel and know this all at once. Right at this minute I wanted to be enriched with the feeling of being a part of every culture in the world. I wanted to be EVERYONE all at once and feel the richness of their feelings and knowledge. I thought this desire was unusual, and I started examining it. Then 5 minutes later it went even further. I wanted to be not only everyone from Earth, but everyone from all planets, all beings. I basically wanted to experience what the essence of God is experiencing by feeling being ALL THAT Is all at once. To be aware at this very moment of all of its expressions. This desire had subsided since this morning, but yesterday I felt that my mind was expanding so fast and I wanted to get more and more and more of every bit of knowledge and positive emotions available in the multiverse.

Thanks P.  smiley

Yes, I wasn't ready for it to end... And I have questions about it all... Seeing the white bed sheets with the skeleton, feeling the breath as literally transporting my awareness to different realities and time... And the spider, which was quite magnificent- I understand spiders have a negative connotation but I did not feel that to be the case. And really curious, who is the girl incorrectly calling my name? I know it was directed at me, but it wasn't my name.

I'd like to explore with the breath and go deeper...

Yes! I just replied to your other post just now! I'm definitely going to do this with consistency every night. Thank you for the advice LB! I think it will help to bring in the feeling of motion. I've been doing the counting method with the breath, but I end up passing out and not counting very high at all. I've done this type of counting method before too. Might not be my thing.

I have done a method of imagining myself trying to handstand before (this was in a hypnogogic state without really realizing I was doing this) and every time I tried it the reality around me got more real until I popped into the scenery. Really trippy. So yeah, Ill definitely start doing this. Thanks!

Those hypnogogic experiences are really cool and super trippy. I enjoy reading your experience and was surprised at how well you described the experience. I had the same thought after my last hypnogogic experience. I wish I kept it going!! Haha. All part of the journey.

I'm going to do this! I've been doing the count method with the breath with poor results so it might not be my thing.

I've done this one in the past, but not strictly and repetitively every single night. I also prefer doing techniques as I am falling asleep as waking up in the middle of the night isn't always predictable or practical. But I still get up in the middle of the night regardless a few times per week so I'll do the technique here too.

I'll post my AP's the next time I have one! It's been awhile.

i had a really cool hypnagogic experience after trying to go back to sleep... i'm in the room i'm in now.... laying on my back and my head resting to the right. i dont yet make the distinction i am already out of my body, as i am preoccupied with the in-between sensations. i know i'm out of body because my vantage point is not on the mattress i'm sleeping on but on the floor beside it. my eyes are half-opened and i see a silver and black spider as large as my face resting along my mattress. i try not to disturb it, it's gently moving. i notice a little brown around the black. i begin to feel the weight associated with sleep paralysis. i breathe deep and hear my breath...the weight from this sends me further.... each breath is like the most rewarding therapeutic sensations running along my spine. at this point i still don't realize i'm out of body. i begin to hear chatter like over a radio. i hear the name putin. i return my awareness to my breath, feeling as if i'm going even deeper. i again look through eyes half opened and realize i am in my bedroom but it is all white. there are translucent cobwebs- conceptual framing and bright white light all over and white sheets and mattress for my bed. there's a skeleton in my bed. i believe i am in the past, and for some reason i tell my self... "not yet" like i'm in the wrong time era. it's as if the breath is shifting planes and time. i then hear a woman try to say my name, except she says "erin" and she says it very clearly to me. "close" is what i say knowing my name is actually eric. i immediately wonder who is calling me. all of this is happening in an instant and i break the spell by trying to go out of body from here, again not realizing i am already out of body. by the initial "push" (trying to push my astral body out mistaking it for the physical body) the awareness returns back to my physical body, the weight slowly disappears and i open my eyes realizing i am now correctly on my mattress above the ground.

darn, i wonder... because i was starting to realizing some things while in this state... had i not tried to project- how much further could i have taken it?

Hi all, I am posting again the easiest technique and least time consuming for me to AP. If you want, give it a try, and if you don't success fast, give it a few weeks of consistent proactive as you fall asleep each night. But it HAS to be done AS you are falling asleep. This point is the most important.

Upon falling asleep, imagine that your bed is a swing and start swaying from side to side mentally. Feel the motion and let yourself fall asleep with these inner motions. If you want, you can add visualizing that you are in a hammock on the beach of a tropical island, or on a pirate ship, an elvish boat, a swing in the sly, etc, whatever gives you joy.  If you nap during the day, this technique will produce even greater results, because during day naps we sleep lightly and our brain is more likely to remain aware while our body is asleep, but with that inner motion, upon falling asleep, your inner body is awake due to the activity and most likely you will feel the spinning sensation that can lead to AP. When you start feeling that spinning sensation and you are aware that in fact your body and part of your brain are asleep, just think that you are standing next to the door. That will teleport you out. The same technique is extremely effective if you wake up briefly during the night and start falling back asleep. if you can manage to not pass out immediately but to start swaying from side to side mentally even just for one minute, the chance of AP is very high.

Is there a regime that works best for AP experiences? I've heard that not eating too late is important and I've heard some people claim that light meals mainly of veggies later in the day can support LDs or APs. I've heard that eating heavy meals just before bed can cause nightmares, but I honestly can't remember the last nightmare I've had personally so I'm not sure how valid that theory is.

I can only speak for myself, as everyone is different and responds to triggers like food, rest, drugs, alcohol differently. I have noticed that when my brain works at an optimal level, meaning eating less carbs and calories and stopping eating 4 hours before sleep, works best for me to increase the level of translation my b rain can produce upon waking up (dream recall, becoming lucid during dreams, being awaken in the middle of the night in sleep paralysis and vibration state). When I stop this healthy run (usually during winter holidays), I become sluggish, more fatigued, less brain sharpness, and that really reflects on my ability to remain aware during sleep.

I want you to try something. Upon falling asleep, imagine that your bed is a swing and sway from side to side mentally. feel the motion and let yourself fall asleep with these inner motions. if you nap during the day, this technique will produce even greater results, because during day naps we sleep lightly and our brain is more likely to remain aware while our body is asleep, but with that inner motion, upon falling asleep, your inner body is awake due to the activity and most likely you will feel the spinning sensation that can lead to AP when you start feeling that spinning sensation and you are aware that in fact your body and part of your brain are asleep, just think that you are standing next to the door.

Interesting! I didn't know about those benefits from the 48hr fast. 1000% human growth hormone is an impressive stat. Thanks for the info!

I think the reason why many different diets work for most people in the beginning is because most real diets (if you follow them properly) usually agree with eliminating sugar and junk and moving towards real, whole foods. Anything in a package most likely has all sorts of crap in it.

But I'm not perfect either, I'm following a "closer to normal" Brazilian diet right now. I rarely drink pop or snack on junk food and I've cut back huge on drinking (once every 2 or 3 weeks or so). But at least having awareness of this information and balancing yourself. I like having moderation so if I start feeling like I'm slipping, I have strict periods where I dive into a specific regimen that I know will work for my body.
