Hi friends,

I recently read 'Seth Speaks' and absolutely loved it!

Immediately I am attracted to the idea of biphasic sleep patterns and I feel like this is something that's been calling at me for a while for a few reasons...

1.) I wake almost every hour anyway  evil
2.) Getting all my rest in one go always results in my body aching throughout the day.

I also like the idea of increased productivity, more energy, and potential health benefits.

My question is, has anyone here experimented with biphasic or polyphasic sleep patterns?

If so how did you find it?

And did you feel like it helped with your NP expansion and recall?

Looking these sleep patterns up now. I have no idea what these are so obviously have no input. Surely someone has experience with this.

I did search through the archives first and didn't find too much but I know there are people here who have at least read the books.

In saying that, with the old 9 - 5 work week, I can imagine it's not something everyone has the flexibility for.

I am not sure if this is what I experience, but I give suggestions to myself most nights before falling asleep that I will remain aware and I will wake up a few times to trigger AP opportunities. This is the fastest way for me to achieve APs frequently without spending time to do any techniques. A few strong suggestions right before dosing off really work for me. I automatically briefly wake up during the night and because I gave suggestions to my body and mind, they really obey. When I wake up for example to turn, I wake up a little more, not just turn and pass our ride away, but I purposely wake myself more, so I can trigger AP upon falling back asleep. This is the perfect time for APs with more awareness. Because of my suggestions, my first thought after I wake up is AP. Then I start position myself top fall back to sleep and I start repeating a few times, I remain aware as a fall asleep. At the same time I start imagining that my bed starts swaying back and forth. That inner motion sensation helps a lot raising inner energies and triggering vibrations. Then I let myself fall asleep and upon my brainwaves diminishing, I experience sleep paralysis. From there refocusing is extremely easy and you end up wide awake in the non-physical.

But as you can see everything starts with affirmations and suggestions before bed. When I first started with the affirmations, it took about a week for them to work. So, it is critical for anyone who tries this method to NOT give up after a few days of no results. This is how the energies in this reality work. It takes TIME for manifestation. And even though we may think nothing is working because we don't see immediate results, the energies start to change ride away behind the scenes. The most important things for success with non-physical experiences is patience and perseverance. If one starts jumping from technique to technique frequently before waiting for the energies to develop and manifest, then nothing will be achieved.

Going off topic, but I think this is extremely important: Affirmations and suggestions work not only for achieving the above, but in every area of our lives. When we wake up every morning, what are our thoughts, do we anticipate something difficult, a hard day at work, annoying people around us, conflicts. If yes, this is what we will attract. We are giving suggestions to the energies that flow within us and around us how to create that day and the energies obey of course. If we wake up with a smile and thoughts about exciting things in store for us, then with this very thought, we are triggering a chain of events corresponding with it. Believe that nothing is impossible. Even if by logic according to our current conditions we may think there is no way something to change, but the truth is that it will if our thoughts change. The change will not be immediate if we have had negative thoughts for a long time and it will take time for the energies to change. Again, we need to be patient and KNOW that the energies are changing behind the scene and when charged with enough of the positivity, then the positive events will start appearing in our lives.

  ALLO ,
Routine will also set a pattern that your body will register and automaticaly will respond to the hard work you have set up when repeated in so many times. My experiences now are,  if I go back to bed in the morning on Saturday I will always have some lucidity and even more interesting experience with lots of recalls just because I actually set this routine for many years and with intention to dedicate the Saturday for that kind of practice. Just perfect Even with no effort now all by default ...kinda cool...really , and a confirmation that it is all about what you set yourself to do will bear fruits.

Hi friends,

I recently read 'Seth Speaks' and absolutely loved it!

1.) I wake almost every hour anyway  evil
2.) Getting all my rest in one go always results in my body aching throughout the day.

My question is, has anyone here experimented with biphasic or polyphasic sleep patterns?

If so how did you find it?

And did you feel like it helped with your NP expansion and recall?

I have recently listened to the audio book ‘Seth Speaks’ and also enjoyed it.  I will likely listen to it again at some point but it is very long.  As for the biphasic and polyphasic sleep patterns I personally have never tried this and I think I would have a very hard time with it.  Mostly because of my regular work schedule (9 to 5 as you stated) but also the way our society is set up.  Stores for shopping/groceries, restaurants etc. are generally open days and evenings.  If you were trying to have a sleep during the evening and than being awake during the night you would be limited to what you could do.  Okay…guilty…Online shopping and Amazon delivers a lot of things to my front doorstep but just doing things like shovelling snow in the winter or cutting the lawn in the summer are things I prefer to do during daylight hours.  I find there are just not a lot of daylight hours available to do things like this when I come home from work.  Obviously this all depends on where you live as well!  Maybe someday when I retire I could give this sleep pattern a try but for now I need my 8 hour sleep cycle!   cheesy

I wasnt aware there was terminology for sleep patterns and I had a similar idea. I plan to purchase a home “float tank” in the future and I plan on doing different, shorter sleep pattern tests inside the float tank. I was thinking of doing like 3-4 hour long naps inside the float tank to see how that would affect obe activity etc. Otherwise.....I would use the tank for every day meditation purposes. Thanks!

Steve Pavlina's biphasic and polyphasic sleep experiments:


This was awesome, thank you!

And thanks guys for all your replies.

As far as OBEs go, for me, I often find myself very drowsy within the non-physical and my awareness usually drops away pretty quickly...

I also find myself rushing a lot... like if I stop moving I might "ping back".

This kind of limits my ability to explore because I am always too busy trying to maintain awareness to simply calm down and go with it.

So I decided to just give the whole biphasic sleep thing a try. As I said, I wasn't enjoying a full nights rest anymore so felt the timing was right.

I think my routine has been a lot less intense than Steve Pavlina's just because he was experimenting with just 20 minutes of sleep per every 4 hours.

Anyway, 1 week in and here is what I have found so far with the biphasic sleeping pattern.

1.) I sleep 4 hours at night and 1 hour during the day... In the beginning, I planned for my daily naps to be a little longer but it seems that one hour is all my body will permit me.

2.) Actually, the sleep durations are fine now... I was a little tired in the first few days but adjusted quickly and I have noticed my sleep blocks feel a lot longer than they actually are. I have woken up a few times (especially in the night) thinking that I must have overslept only to find it's only been a few hours. The same goes for my day nap, it always feels like more than an hour now (I guess this is due to reaching REM quicker).

3.) Productivity has been amazing. I am working from home at the moment and I am loving how much work I get done while the rest of my household sleeps. Around 3 am seems to offer peak levels of energy and inspiration. It's currently 4:35 am here in New Zealand and it's absolute bliss. I am sitting under my window... the sky is still dark and it's raining... Being that I am a young mother of 2 I don't often get this kind of peace so it would be accurate to say that I feel an increased sense of gratitude.

4.) Speaking of parenting, my son commented that I have been more patient lately which was nice. 

5.) Dreams have been much more vivid and insightful although this didn't start happening until about 4 days in. In the past week, I have had only 1 OBE but still early days and technically although I feel adjusted, I am still in the adjustment phase.

6.) I have actually lost weight which was unexpected. I felt I hadn't been eating very healthy in the last week and was almost certain that it was going to bite me on the butt but surprisingly, I stepped on the scales the other day and I had actually lost weight, not gained! Could just be a coincidence but I will wait and see...  grin grin

I don't know much about other people's experiences with sleep patterns but back in the day there was a stretch of a few years when I slept only 5 hours  6 nights a week. No daytime naps and I have to say during that time I had boundless amounts of energy and functioned very well.

I didn't think about it at the time but back then on Saturdays I would take a nap bc I figured I needed it after catching only 5 hrs throughout the rest of the week. I LOVED those Saturday naps. Oh, not for the sleep but for the vivid NP and lucid dreams I would have.

You've got me thinking of trying that or something like what you are doing again. The energy was so incredible and so my diet then too so that may have played a role as well. Matter of fact I'm sure it did.

On your point 3 above I totally relate to that time of day when all is quiet and the world is so peaceful.

Don't you love when your kids compliment you and you didn't even know they noticed. smiley

I used to do it. Really great for productivity, mood and energy. Also sleep inertia is less of a problem. For it to be worth it though you need to be able to fall asleep fast.
