Then it hit me, is this what phasing is, going into a lucid dream from a wake state ? Is that "all" there is to it ?
That makes you question what a Lucid Dream really is. When I had my severe bout with Trigeminal Neuralgia, it only really hurt when I closed my eyes. This taught me how to either learn how to lose my physical focus, using my physical eyes, as soon as possible or suffer the consequences, which in this case was stabbing electric like pain and jolts from my left temple down to my jaw. But, it also led to what they call Tibetan Dream Yoga, which is staying aware during the natural cycles of sleep, all the way into the NPRs. It gave me a whole new scope on what I have been calling Dreams all my life. Because of that, I have omitted the word Dream from my nightly affirmations. I changed it with the word "sleep", as in "I am consciously aware I am asleep, knowing I am sleeping".

We tend to do that in this practice. One step forward, two steps back! Until one day it hits us. That's why Tom Campbell says "it is us that needs to get out of the way and allow the natural shift to occur". Every time we use a technique it teaches us a bit more each time on ways to do just that.

210605 (semi-lucid dream)
Woke up in the middle of the night, tried phasing but fell back asleep and had a lucid dream.

In a big factory of some kind everything looked old and worn down, there were many rooms and levels and I kept getting lost. Got approached by The boss and told I had to give a presentation/sales pitch, told him I was new and had no idea what was going on but he was like, you'll do fine no problem, don't remember the presentation but apparently I did good and there was a celebration in the cafeteria. Flew around the cafeteria for a little bit, back at the table I was sitting at they expressed approval of my flying, suddenly the guy sitting opposite to me shrunk down to about an inch and flew around the table. Asked him how he did that, told me he used a drug and showed me some white crystalline powder, he gave me a little to try for free (the first one is always free, lol), smoked it with a pipe handed to me by another guy and we had some fun flying while miniaturized. Back at the table again he told me something about numbers, the number 3 had to be written double size of other numbers/letters and they didn't call it three, but some strange name I can't remember. Bought a fistful of the powder for 150 which was a lifetime supply according to the guy, not a bad deal, lol.

The rest is a bit hazy. The factory started to fall apart, standing on a giant platform up high that started to plummet to the ground, but right before it hit the ground it reversed and went back up. The boss who was responsible for it falling apart tried to escape in what looked like a helicopter, I flew after him and dragged it back down grin, and he got caught. Had a long conversation/flirted with with a cute girl (always cute girls in the NP for some reason).

Very true! I've changed my approach now to starting with noticing, then after getting relaxed and the patterns/colors start to appear I do a rundown. Have "switched" to the NP a few times now, but every time I've woken up soon after I become aware I'm dreaming. There also seems to be a little gap where I lose consciousness.

Bob-

Congratulations on your progress! I get the sense that you are realizing your own progression over the last year, it seems slow at times, but as I read back over your experiences within this thread I can definitely see it. You are now smoothing out the process of phasing with your relaxation and rundown routines. But it's not just there that the progress is apparent. Small aspects of each experience are shifting/changing and your focus is tightening and your overall awareness is increasing.

The gaps and click-outs as your awareness shifts into and out of these states are good signs, don't fight this; higher level teaching is likely taking place; adjustments. It feels a bit frustrating but it is actually a very good thing.

Your last experience I think was a very important step into a next higher level of learning called a 'Simulation'. These are tightly-controlled and managed areas in the NP of personal instruction which involve your personal characteristics within them, but I have noticed some general aspects such as the giant warehouse that you get lost in. The warehouse is what you interpret as the boundaries or demarcation of the Simulation's specific environment and your sensing this should be a clue to future experiences; this won't be the last one. They will build in complexity and challenge. In this one you were to address an audience without understanding the material. You apparently did this well and a celebration ensued. The celebration was sincere but also offered another lesson, the flying and the shrinking- both demonstrations of abilities only available to you in the NP. That was another success. The cute girl at the end was possibly a sexual challenge that is thrown at most of us from time to time, another small test or "pop quiz", lol! The "Boss" was possibly a guide in charge of the Simulation. Take some time to reflect on the consistency of the theme or story narrative that was presented and how this is now different from prior experiences. This is a time when things get really fun and challenging, good job!

Kurt Leland introduced the idea of Simulations. Here is a link to his explanation that you will now find interesting and useful.

Thanks EV!

Yes, the progress is there, however slow. Keeping a log(and the journal on here) have really helped me stick with it and realize my progress. For instance, I've noticed that my progress/successes come in groups with "dead" periods in-between, so now I kinda know what to expect and don't get discouraged so easily. Also nice to see the frequency of experiences (slowly) increase.

That's reassuring, never thought of it that way.

Oh man, I have failed a lot of "pop quizzes", lol. Kidding aside, I really appreciate your input, you have given me lots to think about!

Great article, really interesting. I definitely will have to reread it further down the line to let everything sink in.

 Like EV so eloquently said "these are teachable moments, but can only be taught at a personal level". We here on the Astral Pulse will help a person get there. There are plenty of techniques here on the Pulse that people could use as "blueprints" to tweak to a more personal nature. But there are many things a person has to experience and find out for themselves.

 We could talk about a lot of this stuff until we were blue in the face. Yet, it only really makes sense to a person once they are currently experiencing. Examples of this: Go back to a Astral related source book, video, etc, that you read or listened to in the beginning of your NPR journeys. Now, the words seem to make more sense.

 ...and I second EV, "Congratulations" are in order here!   smiley cool

Thanks LU! smiley

Yep, should have gone back and reread some of Frank's posts sooner, could probably have saved me a little time, live and learn..

210615 (phasing practice)
Focus on (top and center of head) going inward away from the eyes to the mental screen, but without "placing" anything on it, when I do this it feels like there is a pressure build up in the head and the hypnagogic imagery doesn't make me move focus back to the eyes so easily, so I was "chasing" that feeling. Clicked out, turned to my other side and continued, clicked out again, saw some pretty black and white geometric hypnopompic imagery after waking up, didn't move and continued to focus inward.

After some time, out of nowhere a fast loud deep WOOOOOOP sound, felt like both ears popped simultaneously and the feeling of going to a single point, or like I disappeared somehow. Immediately sat up in the bed very fast, felt rattled and had cold sweat, heavy/tired feeling in the head for about a half hour afterwards.

Didn't much care for this one, it felt very physical and like something wrong was happening. There was no choice to abort, more like a fight or flight response. But still can't help wonder what it might have led to..

It never ceases to amaze me how we can be so "mentally prepared" for the experience, yet, when it actually happens, it still takes us by surprise. I have kicked myself many times for finding myself in a fear test and then I fail it. I know better, yet it still gets me from time to time. I think it's because it comes on spontaneously and ever so quickly too. You find yourself just becoming consciously aware and things are spiraling out of control all around you. The "flight response" seems to be automatic in some scenarios. I see it as our "default mode".
