Tonight infollowed a guided meditation on YT. Visualizing my front door, walking through it into a crystal lake, becoming the lake, reflecting to the stars, creating an astral body etc...

During this meditation I quickly fell into one of the nicest sleep paralysis experiences I have ever had. Im very good at keeping conscious awareness these days and don't ever find myself falling asleep. In fact I think my mental awareness is almost too sharp/aware.

At the point of creating my astral body from the stars I visualized crackling and pure energy. It was quite nice. At this point I felt really energized. Unfortunately as the guide was telling me to rise up through my body laying in bed, I noticed a bright whiteness taking over and as it got brights it was simply my eyes just opening under their own accord. Now my eyes were open and I was still in a SP state. I closed them, my focus went to my physical body and it was all pretty much toast. I woke up in a deep sweat, and 50 minutes went really fast.

I imagine this could be some sort of test/natural response. Im very grateful for the sensations I did feel and the overall experience was extremely pleasant.

Not sure what I'm missing, other than practice. I keep waiting for my visualization to become my primary focus, but it just doesn't seem to happen. PS. I am practicing at night because it is not going to happen having a new born at 4 am and I don't have an issue getting to a mind awake body asleep state (this usually takes me very little time to accomplish). Time seems to simply allow my body to fall further and further asleep.

Any input is always appreciated and TIA.

I take it that the "creating my astral body from the stars I visualized crackling and pure energy" and the "Guide" that you mentioned was still part of the walkthrough, as of a part of the program you were listening to. If that is the case, the "Mindfold" or any other blindfold I told you about in the other thread of yours here, would help you immensely.

 I used it and still use it today because I want to know that without a shadow of a doubt that any light I may see is like from another Realm. I could only be 100% sure of that if I knew that I had blocked out any form of light from getting into my eyes before I began the session itself.

 Congratulations though, It sounds like you were basically teetering on the doorstep, per se. I would stay with that visualization practice/walkthrough that you have found. It sounds like it is working.

 You learn to "allow" your visualization to become your primary focus when you stop looking back at your body to see what it's doing and instead keep your focus on the visualizations you are creating. Even a "sneak peek" is enough to set you back to the beginning again.

 Another great visualization practice is to just focus on seeing a blade grass. Then the rock that is beside the blade of grass. Now slowly allow your peripheral focus to begin to see other things around you. You will start to see things happening on their own. Things just appearing and disappearing. Stay with the focus. Just passively observe as this new World begins to appear. Soon you will merge with it and become one in the scene.

 Another great focus tech is to start with your "Happy Place". It could be a real place here in this Realm or some imaginary place. Go there and see what you can see. At first it's hard to hold your focus there for long periods of time. But the longer you hold it there, the longer you are keeping it away from here.

 Focusing on a simple flame will do it for me now. Just watching the flame dancing will always start some kind of great experience. I used to use the same idea with a Child's toy spinning top. I saw Leonardo DiCaprio use one in the movie "Inception" and I thought that was brilliant. I used that visual quite a bit and still do occasionally use it today. I like to switch things up often and keep this practice always feeling fresh.

 This does get better with practice though. But for now except this a positive experience and know that you are currently moving forward to achieving your goal.  smiley

just recently I just got engulfed 100% into my visualization, when normally its about 10%, I actually felt the coldness of my window, as I thought I could phase thru it, but couldn't, but i'm not sure what it means though to be like that if its a form of projecting or something different, but since you seem to find some meaningfulness to wanting that exact experience I'll let you tell me. also it didn't happen  until I heard my body snore a couple of times, and it was very short cause of my excitement, I guess Ap and that have that in common that you can't be too exciting.

After years of use my Mindfold fell apart. So I purchased a different Eye Mask with a bit more comfort. I found that Velcro on the Mindfold to be a bit uncomfortable.

 This is my new one. Cheap price with comfort and strength. Washable too.  smiley
