Imagining myself swaying or spinning is something I'll experiment with. LightBeam also mentioned it in the other thread Lumaza linked to above. I have a vague memory of spinning sensations, and I sometimes wake up dizzy. I wonder if focusing on that will help me to be ok with letting go.

One thing I get 100% of the time when lucid is a feeling like a soft, warm vibration everywhere on my body. I don't notice it unless I check for it, but when I do it's always there.

I've experienced several of those other things without making much sense of them. A feeling of touching or a breeze, voices, images, knocks. Not much came of it most of the time, but it was passing things as I slept. Probably multiple times almost every night these things startle me awake, particularly sounds and faces.

I kind of wonder how often I wake at night and roll to my side, or scratch myself or whatever, without actually moving physically.

I'm just curios over this thought but would it be possible to trick myself into a AP by sort of mentally feeling as though I am feeling symptoms that normally lead to astral projections (if that makes sense), for example some people recall that they feel as though they are floating and so I could try feeling as though I was floating thus this would make it easier to get into an AP   huh huh huh huh
Imagining a floating feather, falling leaf, a balloon rising, plane increasing altitude, etc. ... all of these have one thing in common and that's that your focus is on them instead of your physical body. Which is what conscious AP entails.

 So yes, if that works for you the better!  wink

 Hello theduke and Welcome!

 What you are experiencing is what's known as a "signpost". They are things that may occur during a non physical shift in focus and it's hard to believe right now but these are perfectly natural to projection.

 Take a look at this thread and you will see what I mean:

 There are a ton of great threads and posts to read here on the Astral Pulse Forums. I would start out with the Stickies in any of the Sub forums here.
 This Sub forum has some great ones:

 The same could be said when you are just lying down contemplating things like let's say making a new thread or answering another question posted by another member here or it could be an important revelation you have come to. You have the answer, it sounds great in your mind. You walk out to your computer to type it and it's gone, lol, or you go to write down whatever the "revelation" was and it's gone. You have drawn a blank. I just blame it on my age though!  grin

 The same can be said with Dream recall though. You awaken in the morning just after having an incredible Dream adventure. You are thinking about it and it's meaning. You go to pull out the Dream journal and you draw a blank. That entire adventure or message of that adventure is all of a sudden gone.

Simply put, yes, that is how you utilize a Visualization exercise or a Rundown or a specific exercise such as the Noticing exercise; with each one you are trying a variety of visualizations or just waiting to see what 'exit' symptoms present themselves and then working with those.

There are many exercises you can try on the first few boards here.

Excellent description of this type of experience Kzaal! I've never quite been able to put it into words, but you have it well described. I have had it for several years now and think of it as a purely mental progression, a different type of experience to Astral, but still part of the NP.

You observe this untranslated, yet distinct progression of thoughts and it is like just as you reach the final thought, they all dissolve into the background; like a house of cards, that final card causes them all to crumble. Like Szaxx says, I have managed to reconstruct them somehow instinctively up to a point, but yes, it feels random and so out of order that I get nothing out of that; so far. And it does sometimes stir an emotion somehow/someway...great point Szaxx!

And yes, I get the temptation to interrupt the process early on and try to write something down, but I know that it will ruin the entire experience; so, I finally filed it away as a subconscious or superconscious mental exercise that needs to just happen on its own; when the time is right for my participation then maybe I will be more involved.

Great topic Kzaal.

Irritating isnt it?
You can ponder over an issue while awake for hours and the jigsaw doesn't get many pieces added. You drift off into deep thought and lots of things start to fit nicely. You then almost work it all out and this stirrs an emotion. Instantly you wake and the whole thought process with its answers fades away the same as waking from a dream.
No retrieval seems possible. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! you cry internally.
Stop there, its in your subconscious and it is retrievable.
Work it again slowly and the pieces appear. Not all of them and not in any order, note them and look at the whole picture.
If you're building something mentally wirh this thought process and lose it. Actually build the something, the memories do return out of nowhere at times.
Yeah, frustration needs to be put away. Easier said than done.

Worst part is that I've tried so many times, I've been having these train of thoughts almost for a year now and even tho (like when you just forgot you had to do something important) I try to go back in my steps and everything. Even calmly without much thoughts about it, it completely vanishes.
I tried changing the subject, sometimes it's totally random thoughts that generate that train of thought. Sometime it happens twice a night and as soon as I stand up to pick up a notepad it's already gone.
It's even more annoying since I know it's always something about the astral or the spiritual realm. It almost feels like it's something either I shouldn't know or that my consciousness doesn't want me to know. How annoying...
And it's always something that looks amazing and a perfect thought...

I'd need to interrupt it before it reach the peak and try to note it as fast as I can but I never know when it's gonna be the right one.
Sometimes you just think about stupid stuff and it's not worth writing down at all. But this one seems to be someway stupid then it evolves into something incredible and BAM! It's gone again.

Thanks for your insightful breakdown that adds to the process I recognized at work here. Also, the click out/click in may be more accurate to describe my transitions where I lack some memory; in these I would call them fade outs/fade ins.

I assume that by 'consistent inconsistency' you are referring to my NP mindset and an issue of controlling my frustration/irritation/temper in the NP. It's interesting because this problem isn't characteristic of me in the Physical; I'm considered pretty calm, patient and slow to anger. Maybe in the NP any tendencies like these become so magnified because they still reflect an underlying anger, fear, negativity of thought in the Physical.
So, I have been doing some work on purging negativity and being more accepting of the life situation and my place within it. This experience seems very connected to some purging/crown chakra/connecting to Source work I had recently been doing.

I highlighted the irritation/annoyances in the dream because early on I recognized their purpose, to give me opportunities to exercise emotional control and stay with the flow. I am pretty confident this was the most important theme of the dream. I thought I did this fairly well actually, not becoming so frustrated that the simulation was terminated, but actually ratcheting back down my irritation. The final set of test modules, I finally decided to break with the given rules and solve the problem in my own way. I had some irritation but I thought I successfully shifted that into a confidence of how I demonstrated the solutions. I know this area still needs some work, because it is so easy to throw me off in the very beginning.
Then again, maybe I'm not seeing everything there is to see here.
