...and I died humiliated, but apparently I deserved it  :|

Heh, kind of exciting actually, but I finally met someone in the NP (Jennifer) and this was a wild projection for me.  It was actually pretty long too, felt like 2 hours and I was worried (rightfully so) that I wouldn't be able to remember everything, but the actual time was closer to 45 minutes; I wbtb at 4 and got up at 5.

Anywhoo.. The setting is a party of some kind and then we are in the old west at a shooting range and lots of talking, but what stood out to me the most and what I recall clearly is a conversation about who I used to be.  She was explaining to me and then I kind of saw through my (Indian me) eyes what she was explaining my last moments of life I think.  I am in a hospital, 1960's (i think it was 68', but that detail is fuzzy to me now   :-() and I'm surrounded by family and neighbors.  Apparently, my wife found out about my mistress and on my death bed told everyone what I had been doing and shamed me in front of everyone!

I then went back to normal me and was amazed to find this out and then more talking and looking around marveling at this experience and even the place I am in, a very nice very white house which seems to be in some future setting.  So awesome, just thought I would share it with everyone, oh and for the record in this life, I just have one wife and no mistresses  :-P
I've been reading on LD forums that a popular thing to do is to talk with their subconscious.  In essence talking with yourself or another aspect of "the self", much like another aspect of our "high-selves".  Even though most LD'rs don't believe in AP they essentially do the same things, but this is not something I have read much on these forums.  I wonder if instead of talking with your guides asking for help to AP or whatever, maybe just communicate with your subconscious to help speed along process, of course this would be easiest to some degree within a LD.

Welcome to Dreams! / the Third Option!
January 31, 2014, 08:56:13
OK, so I had this awesome dream where I an my wife are Russian spies deep undercover in the U.S. (I believe this is somehow related to the show the Amerikans).

Long story short, at the end of the dream we meet the FBI agent's wife and she is crying that she just separated from her husband and as my wife and I are walking away she turns to her and says I would choose "the Third Option".

That part stood out to me when I woke up, so I went to look it up to see what if anything the Third Option is..  GET THIS!!  The Third Option is a book about a CIA agent and it gets better!  The Third Option is a kind of marriage counseling course couple take when they are having issues! 

Keep in mind that I have never heard of either of these two things until this dream as far as I know, so some Astral force is talking to me  :wink:

That totally blew my mind, mind you no issues for my marriage, so who knows maybe I am supposed to write down this dream for some of you readers  :-D  the universe works in mysterious ways  :-P

Anyways, I thought that was the coolest thing that has ever happened to me since I have started writing my dreams down!
tldr version; 

1) Any advice on controlling direction of motion?
2) Do people we conjure up always act lifeless?
3) How can you tell if you are projecting when everything feels so normal?

Heh, didn't mean for this post to be so long.


Last night I was attempting a WILD and it worked out, I soon after about 20 minutes I fell into a dream, but knew it was a dream right away.  As I came to this realization I popped out of the dream and stayed motionless on my couch and dream scene was gone and soon thing cool things started.  First, I heard a buzz wiz past my ear (this is a first for me) and I thought awesome, great sign, then along came the vibrations, so far so good.. 

Now the weird, the vibrations ended and I thought I missed my window to exit, but turns out I was in and didn't know it.  I tried exit techniques anyways, first I tried floating out, nothing, then I tried just thinking of my front door as that worked before, but still nothing.  The weird part was I assumed since nothing worked I was just awake at that point and a little bummed and then I heard someone in my house behind me, but then I realized there can't be anyone here they would see me and freak out (thinking it was someone broke into my house).  At that point I knew I was in and I just needed to get out of the couch somehow.  Since nothing worked I just sat up, worked! 

The problem I have now and why I'm writing this post is to ask for some advice for next time.  I got up and since I knew I was in I just floated around, walking didn't even occur to me, but I think I should have made the attempt anyways, because I was not able to control any movement.  I floated upstairs to check on my wife and kids, they were fine watching TV and reading (although in real life they were sleeping) and I knew it wasn't truly RTZ just my interpretation of events.  As I floated into the room I kept flying past outside the house so I had to redirect my motion back into the room and then I popped out again on the other side of the room. 

I eventually ended up downstairs into someone else's kitchen.  I still am not able to control my floating, but I am able to at least suggest a direction to move in, I realize my real problem was stopping so I float in a circle in this kitchen and I reach down to the floor and grab onto it to stop moving.  Kind of funny actually, but it worked.  I try calling out clarity now a few times and I got no change and I am starting to feel I am losing it and about to wake up.  At this point I try sticking my hands through the floor of the kitchen, my left hand goes in easy but my right hand stops.  I force it anyways and it goes in.  I am still losing it so I think ok lets try something new, I feel around and I can feel the rocks and gravel under the concrete and I think ok lets do something cool before I wake up and I think lets pull up Angelina Jolie (don't know why her, just first thing that popped in my head at the time) from this kitchen floor.  Bam! I grab her pinky finger and pull her up, I over did it a bit because when I pulled her up she was too big so I shrunk her down a bit.  Not expecting much but thought it was cool that I could do it, I at least wanted her to at least react to what I just did, even knowing it was just my imagination to materialize her.  The person I pulled up was just as groggy as I was and then I woke up.
I had a pretty long dream last night, about 1,000 words worth that I could remember, but the cool thing about it was something about the dream.  In the dream I was in Bangkok visiting a friend who lives there (not real life friend, just a dream character). 

Anyways, and I know this is small and doesn't really mean anything, but I thought it was cool.. The cars in the dream are driving on the left side of the road rather then the right side as I am used to seeing.  I didn't even know they drove on the left side until I looked it up after coming to this realization about my dream. 

Also, this is my first dream of dreaming of a futuristic event, the cars in my dream where future looking small and NO Wheels, they kind of remind me of elongated egg shaped vehicles!  Heh, not a big thing, just something else that caught my eye about the dream.
I know it doesn't always happen, maybe in a few cases, but not really for beginners like me..  I wonder why it's the case that we just can't do it, even if we hit the sign posts, or like mine in particular, I can get the vibrations easy just before going to bed, but never launch; funny too because when I get up early to attempt I then fall back to sleep easily (but that is another forum post).

Is this just a mental block we have as a beginner or is there more to it then I realize atm?
I practice daily attempting to AP/LD (Same thing just different approaches) etc and I'm not always successful (three times now), but every once in a while I notice some cool things while meditating. 

First one that stand out to me was I was meditating just quieting my mind not expecting anything to happen, just routine meditation and I must have dozed off for a second or two or something, but I was driving my car and another car speeds up behind me and verse into my lane and I hit him and I popped out of that 1.5 second scene in my head.  It seemed so real, but now that I look back at it, it was something preparing me for something else, I later that week had my first consciously aware AP (if I'm saying that right, I'm still learning the lingo).

The next one was last night I was meditating and my family was asleep, I'm a day sleeper, so I have the house to myself at night.  While meditating I was trying to have another AP, but nothing really was happening, or so I thought.  About an hour into it I was getting ready to get up do other things, but before I did I felt and heard my oldest son (5) standing next to me (just seemed like he was really there) and he was calling my as he usually does when he wakes up.  I thought for sure it was him right next to me, I opened my eyes to see if he was alright and he wasn't there!  I thought, no way!  First thing I thought was he was dreaming and saw me on the couch and came up to me.  Maybe I was not exactly in an AP experience, but I was probably closer then I thought I was or both in and not in?
I got into my designated spot to practice my AP (couch), so I meditate and do my mantra, after an hour I start to feel the vibrations, strongest I have felt yet and I continue to breath and recite my mantra and accept the vibrations as a good sign.

Now, once the vibrations start to wane, I start thinking of my front door and bam, I'm there!  I turn around to see my front door I'm on the outside I see it propped open, it wasn't in the physical just in the non-physical.  The first thing I remember to do was to fly, I forgot to do my other reality checks, but flying seemed good enough at the time.  Bam I'm flying and I'm controlling most of the flight, hard to fly the direction I want to sometimes.  Then I think I want to see my friends house who lives two states away, I fly directly and instantly to their house.

Everything went as I wanted, different locations as I wanted, awareness now when I needed it.  Now, I don't know if it was an OBE/AP or a really strong lucid dream!  At first I thought AP because of the strong vibrations, but I have heard of people who LD also experience to some extend the vibration state.  LD and AP are essentially the same just on different plains of existence from what I understand and now I don't know what I had. 

I suppose it doesn't matter since working on one improves the other and the two are my immediate goals, but again from my point of view it would be helpful to know which I had as a reference.

Tanks for any insight you might have on my issue!
.. I have been writing my dreams down for the past four weeks now, with the intent to write down my AP experiences when I start having them.  I have been reading through them and I have started to see a constant in a lot of my dreams.  Most dreams there will be someone with me, close by on either side just out of my field of view, but I know he/she is there and in some dreams they are telling me something pertaining to the dream.  I don't directly interact with them and I suppose this is why I haven't look at their face.

Anyways, I read somewhere on this forum that we should look for patterns in our dreams for clues to let us know we are dreaming; I assume this qualifies?

As I don't read others dream journals I am wondering if everyone has this experience or is it just me, I'd be curious to know?

Like a lot of people in the western cultures I was until recently totally oblivious to the entirety of this forums topic(s), until a few weeks ago that is.

I have been practicing lucid dreaming for about three years, off an on, so on that front I am somewhat familiar.  I mainly wanted to explore lucid dreaming so I could fly like Neo in the Matrix!  My other area of interest was UFO/Aliens and remote viewing.

Now here is where my current story begins.. I was watching a video of people being able to summon UFOs, Steven Greer being one of those people.  All these people had one thing in common for there success, they did some form of meditation.  I thought hey, why not try it and see what happens.  So for about a week I started to practice meditation daily, I figured whether it worked or not the meditation would be a good thing to do, since I already did Yoga'ish exercise and they are supposed to be awesome paired together.

Anyhow, just last week, I was doing my regular meditation routine and I found myself staring at myself, like it was real, more real then my lucid dreams.  It kind of freaked me out and I popped back into my body, but I wrote it off as if I had fallen asleep for a second.  After reading around the internet, I found out I had an OBE induced by the meditation and then I found out about the Astral Projection.  I'm hooked and have started the process of learning how to do it and explore the Astral Plane.

So, I'm new and I know there is a lot more to learn and its a long road to travel, but I'm ready!  In the mean time is there a reading list of recommended materials to pick up?
