Ha ha,  No way do I use anything so crude. You can get seriously injured that way, lol
 If you meditate in this position first, with the intention of not moving as if your life depended on it, you can stay in this or any position until you fall asleep and for a while after.
There must be other ways of doing this, I know of a few tribes in Africa that sleep in the bush by holding their heads above ground with one arm. Its a means to an end.
Im sure more here know of the effects of sleep position. Personally I'm trying to find out how many others gain the effect of a bad dream and the ratio respecting nightmares.
 It's been tested years ago and there's more in this site than last time by many orders of magnitude.

Hi,
 'Excellent', he said while rolling the ends of his moustache with wax. You must come  for the excitement, it's sure to begin. 'You will soon see the light and beyond that ......'. He explodes into laughter, earpiercing with a shrill tone that even the castle foundations were made afraid. 'There's going to be another victim to my plan'. His grey bushy hair  and large stareing eyes filled the moment with an uncanny madness. His victim asked
'Am I going to die'? Again the shrill cry emenating from him ended with him saying slowly in one word 'Yes'......
 A snippet of what you can expect from this. It changes from normal to a kind of madness but this madness sticks. Things are almost as they should be, but there's a twist. A previous post in this thread had a comment on there being water on the floor, a twist, if a thought of drowning came about then being trapped and the water level rising may ensue. Nice way to go.
 When it gets good there's a feeling with it, it's hard to describe, an atmosphere or ambience but its quite lucid and you remember it.
It may take a while for things to be in 'alignment', you'll know when this is.
Ivr tried to post a reply in a manner that you would not expect. At first you may of thought 'w t f ' but its only a twist from that expected.
Have fun.
 Have success.

This works on many but not all participants.

I must be one of those that it does not 'work' on. The described position and routine is how I normally fall asleep every night. I generally do not have nightmares.

The last nightmare I recall having was about 50 years ago.

But I don't get it...? Why would anyone want to induce a nightmare? Why not induce a pleasant dream?

Hi,
 You are the first person to ask that question. When you're learning to face your fears it's usually rather unpleasant. It's also a way into lucid dreams. To have a pleasant dream, follow the previous but tuck your chin to your chest not stretched upward. I've tried this on many with various results. Those (20 %) or so in the past had bad dreams a few had a nightmare where they couldn't wake from it easily. It's during this time you become aware of the dream and can control things within.  As you're in a stressed situation your conscious mind wakes and once you realise this it opens the door to 'get out'. As so many here are almost getting out, this may help somewhat. It obviously works for me every time regarding bad dreams and when they take that nasty twist you either wake or carry on.
There are a few who adopt this position naturally and they seem ok with it.
We are all certainly different.

Hi
 In some respects it is. Its that much more powerful on your emotions. The added bonus is you get some control , which if you use to exit the dream you're in the 'zone of quietude'.
I tried a different position last night where, lay on my back with my knees raised almost in the sitting position. My head was halfway, looking forward. The dream never appeared, just the usual myriad of sounds, lights and thoughts. The most unexpected thing was that I had total awareness and was leaving my body, travelling through the house walls in a direction totally different to the usual. As this direction was bemusing it caused the wrong thought and back I went. Slowly and calmly too.
I'm trying this one again and  will let you know if its similar.

Oh My, LOL! Surprise surprise, I forget where I came across this nugget it was a long time ago. But there is some evidence to suggest sleeping on your back can induce nightmares. But it isn't so much sleeping on your back as it is putting pressure at the base of your skull. It's got to do with blood flow and circulation. I have no recall where I came across this but it does indeed work.

I remember discussing it years ago with a totally non-astral type group. So it seems if you have a somewhat hard or stiff pillow behind your neck when you go to sleep that works. If not a rolled up towel. Just a little pressure is all you need, too much you will likely wind up with a headache. For that particular group (most of them tried it as a joke) only a few said it didn't work and all of them were side sleepers so wound up rolling onto their sides before sleep.

 It still works today, I fell asleep on a harder than normal surface with a thin pillow and woke up after mybody started dissolving. Wierd stuff, I was in the nightmare position so turned over and fell asleep without the wierdness surfacing.
Pressure on the base of the neck, interesting. Pressure on the high side of my head has brought on vibrations if no lower neck support is present.
The body is indeed strange.
