Quote from: Lighthouse4 on June 28, 2020, 18:46:05Thanks, Lumaza. Sounds like I'm on the right path. I am a "rule follower" and like Nameless said, I feel like I need to do "every thing just so" and imagine that if I do, it will all start falling into place. I guess our experiences can be as unique as we are. Your shower experience, for example--I've never heard anything like that before. I'm sure there are so many wild experiences people go through as they make their way into this new and fascinating NP world.
QuoteI'm also journaling my dreams which is helping me remember more of them.
QuoteNight before last, I did my usual practice but this time I chose to create an image in my mind (flying over the ocean...one of my favs) and try to... is it called WILD? Anyway, I went straight into a lucid dream flying over the ocean. Ah! Just loved it...but short lived. I fell into a dream, still pretty vivid but forgot I was dreaming. But get this... (so I'm in my bed asleep) I dreamed that I was chatting with a friend and said, "Let's go back to sleep...I'm gonna try to AP." I fall asleep on the couch and then AP and walk about the house. Then my AP turns into a dream and then I wake up (in my dream). And then I wake up for real. LOL So, while in bed sleeping, I dreamed that I fell asleep on the couch, APd and then dreamed and then woke up. Hope that's not too confusing. The whole thing reminded me of the movie, Inception (I assume you know it) which was what I had talked about the day before this dream within a dream thingie. Strong subconscious. Sheesh.
Quote from: Lumaza on June 28, 2020, 21:04:28 Your welcome, like we said, you are doing fine! Journaling is a great idea. So is using affirmations before you close your eyes to go to sleep. Use affirmations that are "already done or happening", like "I am consciously aware in my sleep, knowing I am sleeping. I remember my experiences when I awaken for the day". You will find that repeated use of nightly affirmations will lead to repeated LDs and OBEs. That sounds like a LD that turned into a "false awakening", then back into a LD again. Those really catch you off guard, lol! Speaking of the movie Inception, I began to use the same focus target that Leonardo used, his "spinning top toy". I use it as a focus in my Phase sessions though. I will imagine it and hold that imagery, then just observe as it morphs into something else. When it does, I continue to passively observe it with a air of curiosity. Soon a whole vivid scenario will begin to appear. I observe that until I am now fully immersed in the scene, then I react. I use the focus of a simple candle flame in the same way. Motion based sports work great as well. I find the target needs to be something that has motion.
Quote from: Nameless on June 30, 2020, 12:04:32I have to agree with everything Lumaza said in his previous post and will emphasize that motion helps. The motion can be a object, an activity or your body in motion. I think motion ties in with action, that's the one thing that seems to be a requirement for creating anything. That might not make a lot of sense right now but it will in time. I'll add that when you are journaling be sure and capture not just the scene but the smells, physical sensations, sounds, colors. Anything that sticks out to you.And YEP, that whole dream within a dream within an awakening thing... Bazar, crazy, wonderful, puzzling <- notice how 3 of those words have zzz's in them, lol.
