Hello all, after almost a year of being dormant here, I've finally returned. Smiley
Four days ago, I finally projected again, only this time, it was completely accidental. (I wasn't intending to project that early in the morning, but here we are, lol)

And like my last projection a year ago (yep, it's been that long) I triggered it inside a dream. Only this time, it was upon waking up that it happened. I'll give a brief history of my successful (or semi-successful) attempts at going fully aware in the astral plane.

So, my first ever projection, back when I started getting really good at it, was triggered in a dream when I saw a sign on a wall, inside a dream, about "how to exit" and it had the word OBE on the bottom. that word alone triggered my first one. After getting visual clarity, I was hyper-aware for the first time, and at that point, I tried passing through the roof, and failing that, I dived through the flyscreen of the sliding door towards the kitchen. Then, i was flying around for a good 10 minutes. At some point, I tried visiting a long-lost friend, and came to a strange house. This was the point where I turned back and woke up by returning to my bedroom.

The second one only lasted about 3 minutes (I think it was 3 anyway) and initially started with my vision blacked out. Also, oddly, I didn't really hear the metallic roar I get in my ears when I start to separate from body this time. When i could finally see, I was around one of the couldersacks behind my house, and I decided to try flying down the road. I also attempted to fly faster, and ended up flying backwards into the ground. This was when i got up again, and started flying again. I again attempted, this time to teleport, to this long-lost friend of mine... and got blinded by a sheet of clouds, and I found myself back in my room, unable to wake up properly. I then used all my effort to "slap" myself awake for real with my etheric arm. (It did look like an odd white blur across my vision before my physical eyes snapped open)

The last projection I remember before four days ago was one night where instead of starting in my room, I got a real "exploding head' feeling, and found myself running down this odd street and for a while, i was randomly running everywhere in several weird places, including an odd version of my house that had black walls instead of a lilac color, and jet-black floor tiles. That was one of my last true attempts before I pretty much lost both the ability to project, along with my motivation. (school at the time was starting to get real stressful at times then)

After that, for a good year, I simply couldn't do it, I'd sort of lost the ability to meditate for long periods of time as well. And I decided finally about six months ago that maybe I should leave it off for a while. This I did, although I knew sometime that I would return later.

And I guess four days ago marks my official return now. Smiley How it happened though I think is quite possibly linked to wanting the ability to search for someone and know how they're doing. And oddly, trying to do so... triggers it if I fall asleep.

What happened beforehand is that I again had a dream of this friend of mine (This was the first time in a while that I had gotten such a dream, apart from a real vivid one a day ago, again the first I had in a while) of which ended with me waking up a bit earlier than i normally do these days. (This is despite going to bed at 12:30 AM the night before, BTW) And for some reason, I wanted, subconsciously, to search for her again. While attempting to do so, I fell asleep. Next thing I know, I'm being driven home by my mother, when I thought of separating from my body. I did so, and flew real fast up into the clouds from the car. I then dive-bombed afterwards, and found myself in some sort of room. (it kind of looked like my dining room, complete with the table and everything)

This is where it gets interesting; it was shortly after landing in this room that I started to wake up. Started to... for some crazy reason, upon waking up, I suddenly 'teleported' to the clouds again, ready to sky-dive at something like 700kph. As soon as i hit max-speed... I suddenly blacked out, and that familiar metallic roar hit my ears, for the first time in months! I initially thought this was a false start again, until I decided to sit up. Oddly, I couldn't really see, and... i had the odd feeling of sitting up, but lying down at the same time, kind of as if I was "floating in place" while sitting up. At this point, my visions just noise. Then it hit me; I was out of body, sitting up and blinded by a black curtain of noise! Smiley

Then trust my eyes flicking open briefly to break it... cheesy when I suddenly got an odd distorted view of my bedroom window, (this was because my physical eyes flicked open while out of body) I floated back into a lying-down position (that's what it felt like anyway) and lay there as my etheric body slowly pulsated in place... then I woke up, somewhat more alert than normal. I then smiled when i realised what happened, and started my day.

And with my return to this forum, I introduce my unusual method that I'm going to hopefully work on with each opportunity I get.
I call it the "DDOS attack + skydiving" technique.
And here's how it goes; for this to work at a good efficiency, I recommend sleeping for about four to five hours before. Maybe set an alarm, or something. Once you've woken up, get up and do something. I find just getting up and going to the toilet or getting a mid-night snack, anything that can partially wake up the rest of your mind, works. Then, head back to bed.

Now here comes the crucial detail; the idea now is to focus your attention on something that can introduce a whole load of noise into your short-term memory, kind of like DDOSing a server by flooding it with packets. "searching" for something can work, as it did for me, or you can try to solve a huge calculation, or even try remembering back as far as you can. Whatever it is, keep doing it, and work on filling your short-term memory up with it; the idea is to fill up your mind with as much noise as possible.

This is the point where you'll probably drift off to sleep while doing it. Don't try to stay awake, as doing this will keep you up, the idea is to fall asleep while the short-term memory is full of noise from what you were doing earlier. This will probably result in a premature awakening halfway through a dream. As you're waking up, if you feel that the process of waking up's real slow, immediately use a visual exit technique. I really recommend imagining flying up real high and dive-bombing, as the sensation of doing so will stall the waking up process and hopefully fire off the vibrations and/or other exit signposts. If by this point, you're out, congrats, you did it. Smiley

Anyway, as of today, I'm getting back in the game. Feel free to comment on this. I hope to keep this updated as frequently as possible. Smiley

Interesting technique, I am willing to try it. It seems like the key variation here is the churning of the memory. I have had success with similar techniques before but I don't really understand why this works. What is the connection between the memory noise and becoming aware in the dream?

You're almost spot on. Wink I actually got astral awareness upon waking up.

I think it worked that time because the way the memory noise filling works is that the brain somehow recalls that noise upon awakening, and if it's the right stimulus to trigger a projection, it either does so, or leaves a window where you alone can do a visual technique. (It's far easier to do so as well, as you're directly inside a void of sorts at such a point)

Anyway, if there's any interesting results, feel free to post them here, I don't mind. Smiley Can definitely help others.

I use the same technique but with counting backwards from the number 200 while drifting back to the "trance state". I've never been able to pass the number 100 in my reverse counting as I usually lose my consciousness then find my self fully aware in an OBE or a LD.

Welp, there's a number-based way of doing it. Smiley I haven't tried counting before though, maybe tonight I'll give it a go.

The real factor I think is the sleep you get beforehand due to the slightly unstable mental state you're in from waking up prematurely. Not sure if such a technique would work through deep meditation, I'd have to experiment a bit. (That means finding time of which can be scarce at times, lol)

I have found that 'counting' is one of the best ways for me to concentrate and focus. It is a basic component in my projection sequence. Also the odds of success go way up when I project after 5 hours of sleep. The 'sleep factor' is also crucial. I must have had plenty of sleep for several days prior to attempting a projection, otherwise I quickly fall asleep with the relaxation steps. Things like business travel or having a newborn or toddlers in the house also derail the sleep patterns and reduce my odds of success.

I agree, I use counting quite a bit as well. Usually 1-300 (But many times I don't actually get to 300, I click out before it). But sometimes I like to mix it up and do 1-50 and back to 0 for a couple of cycles. It is a great "time consumer" as you await a transition to occur. I have a problem concentrating my breathing. So counting seems to distract that thought.

Since I didn't apply the early alarm (yet, I'll trigger it properly again one day) I didn't get far last night, but I found that counting from 200 to 0 (and also imagining an astral power meter going up with each number) completely disarmed my normally active mind, and basically charged my focus while keeping my body completely inert. I'm definitely going to use this in more experiments when more opportunities arise to focus the mind, then shift it out of body as I'm falling asleep.
