I've suspected for a while that when I wake at night and adjust my sleeping position it sometimes involves no physical movement and I'm projecting NP.

Last night I finally confirmed that something is going on there by catching myself twice while waking, standing up instead of rolling over. Both times I was non physical. Maybe the usual rolling over part is physical but standing up is a large enough movement that I move separately from my sluggish physical body and cause a NP projection.

On the first occurrence last night my physical eyes may have been open, as has happened like this a few times, as I stood up feeling the living room rug under me as I took a few steps without my visual view changing perspective. I ignored it and gave myself a moment to adjust, standing there. I felt something in my hand and dropped it, but then I thought maybe it was something that would prove useful shortly and that I had in my hand for a reason (Huh), so I snatched it back up. I considered how I might blink and activate my NP vision without becoming too aware of my physical eyes. I blinked carefully but it didn't work. Finally I was happy to see a scene open up around me, as it meant my NP vision was activating. I began to lose awareness as I went into dream mode, running around finding big elephant like creatures but not any humans.

I woke again and stood up again NP, the same as before, with my physical vision seemingly activated as before. This time, however, I became aware of my breath and my awareness went physical.

So overall I'm happy that I confirmed what I suspected about it being a NP opportunity. Hopefully I will keep remembering to try standing up when I wake.

I'm a little unsure about how to avoid slipping into idiot dream mode. I'm so enthused about something happening that I dive right into it instead of... I don't know, just staying still and observing its meaning or stopping to ask for guidance or something.

Sleepy Hollow from Sleepy Hollow Tongue?


Sure, I guess that's me!


An update on this topic - Last night I heard a couple odd sounds, woke up, heard my breathing for a second in that weird way that sounds like someone else breathing in my ear, but then it stopped as it normally does and I'm just lying there awake. But I figured, sure, what the hell, as a matter of practice I'll go ahead and get up and see if I'm really awake like I try to practice when I remember. So I don't stand all the way up, but I sit up and confirm I feel physically awake. I lie back down to go to sleep and try again.

A couple hours later or so I wake up. I quickly realize what happened. This feels different than when I woke up earlier. I was dreaming before! Crap! I should have done my buzzing feeling test and I would have known right away I was asleep. Instead I didn't do any test. It was more like, "Yep,  I'm physically sitting up. Definitely awake That's good enough. I'll go back to sleep."

One thing I also remember was while sitting up briefly I also had some awareness of my body lying asleep, which was a bit of a tipoff, but I didn't give it enough significance.

It's strange how these things make sense once I'm awake, but when I'm asleep and lucid I don't have all my faculties and can't figure these things out even though I should be able to. Maybe eventually my awareness will improve and more of "me" will be there lucid so these things will be more obvious?
