Quote from: LightBeam on September 11, 2023, 21:32:18I just wanted to provide an additional input from my own experiences. I am most successful when I do any visualization/motion techniques right as I am falling asleep at night, for at least 10 min.
Quote from: Xanth on September 12, 2023, 09:05:13I'm curious, when you're doing your visualization/motion techniques are you lying down or sitting up?
Quote from: LightBeam on September 12, 2023, 09:20:14Laying down in my favorite sleeping position, because I want the last thoughts of being somewhere else to be in my mind when I drift off. I have tried doing visualization during the day or longer before falling asleep and it does not work. For me this technique has to merge with falling asleep without interruptions of waking up or moving before the first phase of deep sleep. The visualization has to overlap by a bit with going into Delta. But to prevent falling asleep too quickly before you have a chance to visualize for at least 10 min I would suggest to go to bed 30 min before you get too sleepy. TV should not be on, phone should be put away, etc. NO disruptions between the ending of the technique and falling asleep.
Quote from: Xanth on August 29, 2023, 16:20:53Feel the materials, the strands as you pull on them. Feel the pressure of the rope in your hand and the weight of your body lifting up off whatever surface you're on. You need to convince your conscious mind that this is REALLY happening
Quote from: Kree on November 23, 2023, 12:38:50What exactly is the mechanism that initiates the transition here?
QuoteIf you could simplify the technique as much as possible, what would it look like? With the rope technique there's the sight, feel of rope, pulling sensation, and sense of movement. Now, I'm pretty sure you could do without most of these🤔, but people still only really talk of the rope technique rather than any sort of simplified technique. I don't get what's special about it? It seems to have just about the lowest success rate of all techniques from what I've read, and I think that's because it's so complicated and costs so much mental energy just to do it correctly. It's like trying to drift off while doing mental math.
QuoteI can't be sure, but ime techniques with just one or two focus points work best, unless you're really sleepy and need more stimulation.
QuoteAlso Xanth I wanted to know if you're still sticking to your noticing and rundown techniques, or if you've found anything else?
QuoteHave you experimented with Frank's technique of simply "going up"? Something I've noticed is that all these technique (e.g. noticing/rundown/frank's/tinnitus+blackness) somehow stimulate the third eye, through feeling the location or activating it through visualization. Is this something you've thought about or noticed?
