Part of my personal technique involves staying awake while drifting into sleep.  Sometimes on the verge of sleep I will have strange experiences that jar me back awake. This can happen up to half a dozen times in an evening.

I have not had the ones you describe. Usually I have a muscle spasm, once I heard a HUGE explosion of sound, like an atomic bomb (I imagine) going off somewhere, there might have been other things but those two come to mind. I had always figured that since my intent was to stay awake, that either my subconscious or my guides were providing a mechanism to help train me to stay awake into sleep. I usually appreciate the help.

Yours sound more like exit symptoms though I haven't heard of ear popping exactly.

Hi,

just wanted to say that I also hear the popping sound (in my right ear) and those spasms sound familiar too... My legs've been cramping a lot lately, making it hard to relax. Usually I feel energy rising up my legs right after lying down, thus causing those really intense sensations.

Hi there,

The past few nights, I have been noticing some pretty weird sensations as I fall asleep.  I guess meditation has been training my mind to remain alert and feel them.  

Right on the brink of sleep, when I'm just about to pass out, it feels like the ears kinda pop, like if you were to hold your nose and exhale, and it also feels like the body gets a surge of energy and the heartbeat basically stops for a brief bit.

It's been pretty jarring and I pulled myself back awake several times after experiencing it.

Does anyone else notice this?  Is this the projection reflex kicking in?

Thanks,
Justin
