Quote from: Lumaza on April 07, 2016, 20:07:35Another example of this, the exploding head syndrome. This one was always occurring with me just before a exit and stopped me dead in my tracks. I would be relaxed, I did my Mantras or counting then vibrations kicked in. But all of a sudden a rush of energy built in my head and I felt like it was literally going to explode.
Quote from: Nameless on October 05, 2016, 22:04:51Lumaza and you too Szaxx and anyone else with an opinion, about that whole exploding head thing. Are we sure this is just another exit sign? I ask because I'm little iffy on whether there might be more there. The other night I had a huge one and decided to just see what if anything I could do with it. I 'felt' around up there with my senses while it was going on and when I pressed (with my senses) the pressure got extremely intense. I could hold it but only for a second or two. I could move it around a bit and moved it down to my heart area. It felt really good there but when I released my hold it would immediately move back into my head. Moving it around it felt very much like the vibrations only much denser.Thoughts?
Quote from: Nameless on October 05, 2016, 22:24:53Haha, figures! I lost any fear I had of this a while back. I absolutely never experienced any exit symptoms till recently. I do think they are just a way to re-awaken what I've been ignoring. When I got it to my chest it really made my chest feel looser but it gave me a whopping headache.
Quote from: Lumaza on October 05, 2016, 22:29:37 I see this as a way to keep me feeling "empathy" for those here that are just beginning this practice or those that come here after just experiencing their first terrorizing bout of SP.
Quote from: LightBeam on October 06, 2016, 00:15:10This just happened to me this morning. I rarely get scared anymore of SP, but I dont know what happened this time. I was awoken as I was sleeping on my side by loud voices. The voices were very clear and they sounded like professors were presenting lectures during a scientific conferee. I was about to think of a place and refocus completely, but then a thought popped in my head that some ghost is behind me and will start lifting my blanket. After the fear built up, I tried to wake myself up but I couldn't. Then I thought to myself, wait, you know better, just think of a place. But despite this, my other part felt I should wake up and protect my physical body LOL. So, eventually I did, but that is not typical of me. I laughed in the morning.

Quote from: EscapeVelocity on October 11, 2016, 04:42:50Lumaza- just reading your thread here led me this morning to deviate from my ongoing morning dream and to recognize the ebb and flow of my consciousness as I became increasingly aware of both my dream and the fact of my normal waking process.
QuoteBut as I neared the 'surface' of full waking, I was able to recognize and re-submerge myself back into the depths of the dream and let the dream continue. I was thinking about what you had said about dream recognition in this or another thread and that became a conscious operative thought at this point.
QuoteIn this experience, I was able to watch the dream progress and not interfere with it, watch my awareness nearly break the surface of 'full' consciousness and then let it slide back down into the waiting dream 'current', like simply allowing my awareness to flow down a stream...hence my wonderment at the song, "Row, row, row your boat..." I did this like six or seven times before I finally came completely awake...all the time thinking about your post! lol It is so sad, but early this morning I had the grasp of some of the subtle features that allowed me to manipulate and re-direct my dream back to where I wanted it. I even had thoughts of how I would later describe this...and yet, within a few minutes it began to fade...and within an hour it was gone... Writing this out provokes another question: How many of us experience dreams in groups of two or three at a time? I am saying that I will have a sequence of three or more dream storylines going on throughout the night. Sometimes, they are all resolved by morning; sometimes not. Anyone?
QuoteThere is SO much subtle stuff that I wish I could remember or convey from this morning...but of course, I had to get up and go to work...
Quote from: ThaomasOfGrey on October 11, 2016, 07:58:45I know what you are talking about when it comes to the awareness. If you raise it too much it often ends the experience.
Quote from: Nameless on October 11, 2016, 14:30:01Trust is the big issue, you need to trust yourself. <-- That's for the newbies. I think more experienced APers know this.
QuoteI have read tons of responses here about the eyes opening. Now sometimes that might be a problem but not always. As for me, if my eyes insist on opening I let them, however I keep my focus on what I am seeing when they are closed and do not focus on the room I'm in. I've found that whatever I am seeing with my closed I will continue to see with them open. Just wanted to put that out there as it might help some who are having issues with this.
Quote from: Szaxx on October 11, 2016, 14:33:24Maintaining that focus within the dream state and not waking is a challenge. I played with this ages ago and found you can stay embedded if you replay the experience in order to recall it. You wake with full recall and it fades almost as soon as you wake. Later in the day something triggers the memory and once again you have full recall. It does mean your awareness has to be on target for recall or you miss it. A game of patience indeed. Any thought of the body or waking kills it although it is very similar to staying in the 3D zone respect to thoughts.
