Hey everyone.. I'd appreciate any tips, or suggestions.. I'll try and make a brief overview of my progress.
I've been trying to ap for about 2 months. I've had two spontaneous, one with bad vision, the second was good vision but
it was short. That was over a month ago, both were early morning, the first had no exit sensations, but re-entry sensation. The second
I heard a buzzing (like a bee flying near my ear), then like a soft pop and I was out. I also had re-entry sensations
Currently, my MO is
1. Get comfortable and start relaxing.
2. Focus on breathing. Start by stacking breath counts.. e.g. inhale 1 second, exhale 1 second, inhale 2 seconds, exhale 2 seconds.. all
the way to 10, then back down to 1.
3. By this time I'm very relaxed, and in a good trance. Sometimes I may snore.. (that was the wildest thing hearing myself snore fully conscious!!! LOL. It caught me totally off guard.). So I'll start a mantra like.. exhale "relax", inhale "float" which will start mini vibrations kicking in. I'll think "float" because I learned in my first obe, thought is everything. I thought "stand" and I moved to standing position. I thought, "am I floating?" (as in above my body), and I felt myself lifting up through the ceiling!
4. This is where it gets tricky for me. I've been trying different exit techniques. The rope doesn't really work for me. Trying to turn is good, I get really heavy vibrations, and feel like I'm going to pop out. But then I notice I start to tense up and have to focus on relaxing again... essentially starting back over. I've tried horizontal spinning (trying to move from head to foot where belly button is center axis),
which is ok, but don't seem to get far. Just now I felt like I was on the verge.. I made up(?) an exit method where I visualize ropes coming from the ceiling, and when I exhale I think "pull", as if to pull my body out.. and it felt like I was on the way out! I even started to get a tingling sensation on my chest (like an exit sensation I got from my spontaneous).
Some other related notes: When I have to relax again after a failed attempt, a heavy relaxed sensation in my mind occurs. If I follow it
I feel like I'm going to sleep, or that a huge headache is coming on but one never does, then a I "emerge" into a more awake type of consciousness. As if I took a nap and woke up. My eyes fill with brightness, and I want to open my eyes,sometimes I do slightly by accident.
What's weird, the brightness is brighter than the light in the room. Almost as if a light bulb is in front of my face.
Lately feel shifting like I'm in an earthquake or waterbed, and internal movement I guess you could say..
I feel like I'm getting real good at getting to a good state, last night I laid down and within a couple minutes I had a hypno jerk!!
appreciate any thoughts!
