 Great Job DevilDog and Welcome.

 My advise, keep doing what you are doing.

 Don't rely totally on LD's especially when you are already getting great results already as it is.
 
 I disagree with Thaomas on this one. I see LD's as more of a "effect" of a successful OBE. A successful OBE opens you to a new awareness. That new awareness will be felt in all aspects of your life. Waking or dreaming. You will just seem to notice more in general. Hence the increased LD's.

 Projecting consciously is hard. Repeating it is even harder. But just because something is hard, doesn't mean it can't be achieved. When I hear someone advise another to rely on LDs instead of going the harder route, I see that as a "cop out". This is hard for a reason. You have lived all your life, so far, thinking that you were just your physical body and that nothing lies beyond that. Now, spontaneously or otherwise, your eyes have been open to a new truth. One that words alone couldn't prepare you for. That new revelation should be the result of hard work and determination.

 Learn to "strengthen" your focus. Right now I am going over to post in my "Doorway" thread, where I teach people how to do just that. What you focus on is up to you. This entire practice is based on releasing your physical based reality focus and turning it to "other". What you experience in "other" is up to you. I have many methods to get you to that "Doorway", but after that, your on your own.

 Every successful technique that you read is all about learning to direct and maintain a "NPR" (non physical reality) focus. Binaural Beats is a great focus tool. My techniques go much further, but can also be used along with a Binaural Beat or Isochronic Tone track.

 Good Luck!

Thanks for your insightful response. Itís true that I have a real fear, and Iím cognizant of it, of being killed in a violent manner, such as a gun shot to the head.   I didnít draw a parallel between said fear and the nightmarish figure I encountered. As I have somewhat frequent episodes of sleep paralysis, the lesson I drew from this was, although Iím afraid, I can take control of the situation and rise above my fears in any given situation.
No worries. Maybe it would pay dividends to consider why you are afraid of being killed. I am afraid of dying in this physical life before the mission is completed so to speak. There are things to learn prior to the next stage. It is good to experience rising above, I think this will have a lasting impact, even if you continue to have these kinds of dreams for a while longer.

Typically when I wake up paralyzed, Iím fully aware of whatís happening. Not being able to move doesnít generate any fear, itís the very intense feeling of not being alone. Instinctively you want to turn around to reassure yourself but you canít move. You lay there helplessly sensing imminent danger. With this somewhat successful experience under my belt, Iím better equipped to deal with this type of situation going forward.
The way you described this reminds of a page from the manga Stardust Crusaders. Studies show that humans know when they are being watched a high percentage of the time. No one can explain exactly how this works but it could be a psi phenomenon. Perhaps the feeling of not being alone is an extension of this property applied to consciousness that doesn't necessarily have a physical body here.

At the same time though I am reminded of the fear of separation, that imminent danger or death feeling that causes us to pull back from early projection attempts.

I will share an experience I had on a drug induced trip. It was an encounter your deep rooted fears style event. I was deep and felt paralyzed. I had a feeling that something bad was happening with my partner but I was powerless to help. It revealed an incredible fear of loss, I was pretty desperate but had no control. When these feelings reached a climax I experienced a resignation of what I could control and a letting go of fear.

The moment this happened I woke up and experienced a physical purge, vomiting with nothing to throw up. Dry heaving with a deep guttural sound that I had never experienced before. The reason I recounted this experience is to point out the struggle against what you cannot control and the eventual resignation I experienced. Why do you think it is so uncomfortable to be intimidated by the presence of this entity? Perhaps another fear of death test.

So why isn't there nothing? Nothing might actually be unstable. It might be under direct risk of spontaneously differentiating itself into opposites, in an act of un-directed creation.

Sounds like a plausible mechanic. The sun we are trying to touch is the root of causality. I think most people can contend with the logic that reality systems can have a true casual beginning if they exist as a nested system.

Suppose that the highest conceptual level that exists for us is primordial consciousness, and it can exist spontaneously through opposites. For me this infers that conscious existence is potentially infinite because the spontaneity needs no cause and thus has unlimited time and existence on its hands.

I find infinite existence to be unsatisfactory - it undermines my sense of purpose. There is still parts left unanswered though, what is the medium? All of the reality systems we know about have a medium. A quantum vacuum seems like a real medium. The spontaneous primordial consciousness has a medium that we arbitrarily label the source.

Its Matryoshka dolls all the way up and all the way down trying to grapple with this.

So I will just talk about the physical universe for a moment, because the meta-universe is outside of what is easily known, but it is probable that a lot of the rules that seem to hold here may also describe the larger picture.

There is this age-old question in philosophy of cosmology..."Why is there something rather than nothing?" Seems like there could just as easily have not been a universe, right? Also, why this particular universe? Why not any number of other ones (And don't bring in multiverse theory here, because that doesn't solve the problem of why THIS particular universe is the universe it is, and not another universe)? It seems there is something deeply arbitrary here. Either... this universe had to exist, and exist exactly as it does, because it was necessary for that to be the case, or else it was a contingent thing- it could have been this universe, or it could have been a slightly different universe... and that is a dense issue.

The question of, "why this particular universe" is pretty hard, but the question of "why this universe, and not nothing?" is a bit easier I think.

There are hints to answer that question in cosmological science and particle-physics. For instance, it is strongly hypothesized that the sum of all energy in the universe is zero. That is... when you add up all the energy in every vector, and all the gravity and matter and such, it all adds up to nothing. That is exhibit one.

Exhibit 2, is that particles and sub-particles will spontaneously come into being, and have been observed doing so. When the local energy in the quantum vacuum is too high in a particular spot, a pair of particles is made, one positive, one negative, opposite spins. Energy coalesces into matter by becoming a pair of balanced opposites.

There is this rule called the "conservation of mass", which states that the mass you have at the start of the event is the mass you have at the end. This is not exactly true, as we know that mass can be created and destroyed using energy as a currency. The rule which does hold is the conservation of energy... energy is not created or destroyed.... except this may not be true either. It may well be that energy is created in the same way mass is... by differentiation into opposites. Potential (non-being) becomes being with a zero sum.

So why isn't there nothing? Nothing might actually be unstable. It might be under direct risk of spontaneously differentiating itself into opposites, in an act of un-directed creation.

As for my fear of dying violently , Iím going to have to overcome it so that, as you put it, my core being response changes. Going to work on that. The beauty of this site resides in the fact that that people such as yourself can offer different interpretations and a multitude of ways of looking at things.

What you experienced here is possibly just a core being lesson. I get these almost every day. You are put in a scenario that may not occur all that frequently in physical reality, such as a confrontation with an entity that causes a fear response. You react violently towards that entity, and thus the lesson is revealed that you hold some fears, perhaps of being physically threatened, and that your default is to feel hostility towards these threats.

For years I would experience threatening entities in dream experiences and very often I would physically fight with them, truly a pointless struggle in these dreams but a persistent scenario. The reason I had this experience is that I was afraid of humans attacking me in real life, I saw it everywhere I went in normal life. A response encoded into my core being due to years of physical threats and abuse living in a violent society.

Over time this illusion has slowly been dispelled. I no longer fight with entities in my dreams. I rarely feel afraid of people I see in real life. The core being response has changed. This is the lesson you are experiencing.

Where does the lesson come from? I don't really know, but I suspect the scenario could be a form of telepathic communication from another entity.

I think that both models are probably valid in isolation as somewhat separate systems that don't need to be reconciled into a consistent reality view such as the apparent consistency of this reality.

I suspect the reality model you get in the non-physical is some hybrid between what you expect and what you require. In a thriving metaphysical cosmos with access to concepts like the akashic record, if you can imagine it, it may well be a real system out there. Just imagining it might even be enough to make it real even if it wasn't pre-existing.

One interesting aspect though is the idea of retrievals for the lost vs automatic hand holding for those that die. I always found the idea a bit strange that dead people would be hanging out in fantasy scenarios waiting to be rescued and we need to be enlisted for this job. It is as if there is a lack of manpower to reach these entities, but that seems bizarre. One aware unit of consciousness should be able to concurrently visit every human that has ever lived and solve this issue in a few minutes.

It is possibly an issue of force - those that want to remain stuck get to be and those that have the will to move on automatically get put into the educational zone. Volunteers are required to take it upon themselves to go and help the stuck people. Its anyone's guess as to why mass enlistment doesn't work in this hypothetical.

What made you think the entity was dark? Just because it was in your house?
