For the past month I have been doing the following; recording my dreams, doing reality checks and practicing astral projection. It has been a rollercoaster ride to say the least. Once I started keeping a dream log my ability to recall dreams started to turn back on. Sure there were a few mornings I could not remember, but for most of the month I had no issues.
I have also been doing reality checks which is simply asking yourself, “am I dreaming?” Normally I just try to put my hand through my other hand to prove to myself that I am not currently dreaming. The idea is that if I do this more often in my waking reality then it may also occur in my dream reality. In my dream reality I should be able to put my hand through my other hand. If that were to happen then I would be able to become lucid in the dream.
My biggest frustration with this process has been attempting astral projection. This is what I am really going after and have been failing to do for an entire month. I have been learning to put my body to sleep, so that I could continue on with the other stages of astral projection. I am able to go into some degree of sleep paralysis, but sometimes I am never sure if fully made it. Learning this at first is scary because once this process hits your chest area and throat it gets weird. At first I felt panic, like maybe I was going to die, but over time I became more comfortable with the process.
Despite getting comfortable it get can very discouraging to attempt astral projection. There is a lot of time and energy that goes into it. There have been many road blocks that I have been facing such as fear, finding a good sleeping position, being in the unknown, feeling the various sensations, etc.
Last night I tried listening to a different youtube video on binaural beats. I have listened to other videos in the past and they seem to work, but never one hundred percent. So, I decided to try this new one and the same thing happened – nothing. So, I went to sleep as usual. I have been getting used to failure so it doesn’t make me as irritated. Anyway, I eventually wake up a few hours later and something strange happened. I was in sleep paralysis to some degree, felt weird sensations in my nose and face and then it felt as if someone was behind me pushing me into the center of my brain. Once that happened a blue outline lit up around me and I started to hear this intense high pitched sound which then was accompanied by these vibrations. It was finally happening. I reached the vibrational stage – the stage where you actually feel yourself vibrating with intensity. The vibrations were growing and I started to see a teal dot light up in front of me. I felt like I was going to blast out of my body at any second… but then it stopped. Nothing happened. I was sad, but also super excited that I finally reached this stage. I thought maybe in the past I had reached it, but now I know this was the first time. To be honest though, years ago I remember living in Chicago and I woke up one night in bed and i felt like i was being electrocuted. I wonder if I was having similar experience.
Anyway, for those that are new to this topic, reaching the vibrational stage is important because you usually experience that right before you project. This is huge for me. I can’t wait to continue improving my dream recall and working on projection.
Something that occurred to me recently was that I truly have the spirit of an adventurer, not only as a traveler, but as an out of body traveler. I know I will breakthrough and achieve this. This is something that I have been wanting to do since 2006. It is finally all coming back to me and I am ready! Until next time…
