You did talk about guides and tests, and now it is only my subconscious Sad I'm a bit disappointed
But indeed, I was able to see my mind modulate some part of my experience

I will train myself to trigger these mini-dreams more often and try to remember to become lucid. I have read I'm mean to "jump/penetrate" the scene, to project directly into it.

My main goal is to understand the how and why the life and existence

Hi Jaja ... welcome to the forum!

You have already created a great start for yourself (e.g., diary, regular practicing, progression). A diary or journal is especially important from my own experience ... and so is regular meditation.

In regards to out of body experiences, I am going to suggest reading William Buhlman. He has a web site with lots of free stuff on it, and he focuses very well upon the out of body experience. Here are some links:

www.astralinfo.org (main site)

www.astralinfo.org/astral-projection-methods/ (techniques) ** start here **

www.astralinfo.org/effective-mindset/ (exploration mindset)

After reading Buhlman's 2nd book, I had my first experience within 40 days of practicing each day. That was over two years ago. However, probably my most important experience to date was meeting my guidance in an early OBE. This really changed things for me.

I will note that "phasing" and "out of body experiences" are often perceived differently by the traveler. Buhlman speaks mostly about the latter. And, I have noticed that phasing is more frequently discussed here at the AP forum. Phasing from a state of wakefulness is a very refined skill, however it is not a necessity. Learning to exit or project from your sleeping physical body is perfectly fine! It is what most of us do.

If you look around the forum here ... note the "blue stickies" ... these are posts that have been highlighted intentionally by the forum moderators. They are filled with common answers to FAQ's. A good place to start if you hungry for information or answers.

There are many skilled and experienced travelers here (and of course ... lots of newbies). I am sure that others will eventually chime in here. Thanks for introducing yourself.

Maybe once or twice a month these days.  All spontaneous.

I don't actively practice anymore.  I prefer to focus my time on my spiritual growth and becoming a better person.

Which does have the happy side effect of causing those spontaneous projections to occur more often than not.  Smiley

Hi there,

I registered a month ago, now it is about time to tell you more about myself and my experiences that brought me here.

I'm a 45 year old female. English is not my native language by the way.

About 3 years ago I started a dream diary and soon I picked up the ambition to get a lucid dream. A few weeks later there it was, I was standing next to my bed fully conscious, from there I ended up in my first lucid dream.
Since then lucid dreaming became an important part of my life. I have a few lucid dreams each month, they are very precious to me.

Also, on 4 different nights, next to having a lucid dream, I had the experience of finding myself some distance above my bed, rocking like in a hammock or moving otherwise. These were very short experiences, they had the same self-conscious feel as a lucid dream, but there was no sight and there was no dream, this was just me in my bedroom.
The last 2 of these experiences were on successive nights last month. I was very excited, I felt maybe this was the beginning of a new 'chapter' of developing OBE's or the like. I registered here and started reading in Astral Dynamics.

Nothing noteworthy happened since then. Untill last night. Last night (after a natural WBTB) I found myself walking in my house, I noticed a light was dimly on, I was sure I had turned it off before returning to bed, the light dimmed even more, this made me realize I was asleep. I walked on in my house, everything was very real, I touched things like I am used to to stabilize a lucid dream. Some time later I woke up. Then I had two more of these 'dreams', where I realized this was strange me roaming the house at night and I conscious/ lucid walked in my familiar surroundings. I woke up after each.

I can not imagine myself projecting from the waking state (for now). But I do feel there might be new possibilities for me in the sleeping state. I want to share my experiences here on the forum. I hope somebody might recognize them and maybe have some feedback or advise (for instance about developing OBE like skills in the dream state)
Thanks for reading  smiley

My main way is to pop out of body (sort of to the star center, witness) while drinking coffee, sitting around or whatever and observe feelings. I can do that every 2 hrs. so theoretically, out about 8 times per day. i have no idea what other people do though, i just learned it one day.

With regard to your dreams and even these brief 'dreamlets' that occur in and around hypnogogia, any significance can really only be determined by you. Most of this material is pulled from your subconscious.

I will point out that these episodes are showing you Dream Triggers, opportunities to become lucid and turn a dream into a Lucid Dream.

HTH

I will add that paying attention to our LDs, both to the overall context and to the particulars can give us great insight into our own individual personalities and issues that need work...sometimes it can become a bit uncomfortable. On top of all that are the really fun opportunities for self-expression...

An interesting video that I found in a page of a "Mutual Dream Experiment" of the Web Site of Dr Rory Mac Sweeney, where he has a talk with Mr Robert Waggoner.

www.wakeupinyourdreams.com Author Robert Waggoner and philosopher Rory Mac Sweeney discuss the nature of reality, with a penetrating view into the elusive state of non dualistic awareness. Both offer insight into the world of lucid dreaming and ponder the notion of being able to connect with other people in the dream world. Your comments and questions are welcomed...

Another interesting one of his videos.

YUP!  That's another possibility.  Smiley

Good job thinking outside the box!
ONLY within the confines of the human experience filter.  Outside that filter, no, it doesn't exist.

I would say this is not true if we look at the case of people like Eben Alexander where his brain was in total shutdown there would be no connection to the body at all because he was in a coma. And yet he had a very rich experience far beyond anything that is physically possible.
If he was in a Coma, then he wasn't dead.  AND he's still alive now... so he was never FINALLY, IRREVERSIBLY dead.  Right?  Right.  Smiley

Science LITERALLY can not answer the question "when does final, irreversible death occur?".  We just simply do not know.
Do a bit of research on the subject and you'll quickly find that science doesn't know when the "FINAL" death actually happens.
It's exactly the same with "dreaming"... science can't answer the question of "what is dreaming?" or "what is it's function?".

So yes... there isn't a person alive today who has been *DEAD* with that complete, final disconnect from their physical body.
