Alpha Brain for Lucid Dreaming: Day 2

Leave a comment Standard

Okay So it has been over 4.5 months since I have been practicing lucid dreaming & astral projection and it has been a very exciting and frustrating ride. The nights you have great vivid dreams, experience the vibrations or have a lucid dream are great, but then there are those mornings you wake up and have no result except maybe just remembering your dreams. To be honest, just remembering your dreams isn’t all that bad, I guess I just need to manage my expectations right?

Back in February I was thinking about experimenting with a supplement for my dreams and I came across alpha brain. I have heard of it before on Joe rogans podcast but never knew that it could help with lucid dreams. So I went out and bought it. I experimented with it for about two days and did not have a positive experience. I experienced a lot of brain fog the next day I woke up which really bummed me out especially since Alpha Brain is not very cheap.

Anyway, fast forward to April and I have decided to give Alpha brain a second chance. I recall having some sinus issues around the same time I originally tried it, so perhaps it was a fluke.

So, I took just one pill (not the recommended 2) last night around 6PM. The reason I took it so late was because I read a blog about someone who was experiencing lucid dreams when taking this 3-5 hours before going to sleep. I thought I would do the same. Not long after taking the pill I noticed being more alert and having more mental energy. When it was time to go to sleep I did not have any issues, however, I did have a slight problem going back to sleep when waking up in the middle of the night. I did not have any lucid dreams last night, but my dream recall was greatly improved. It’s funny because in one of my dreams I was even talking with a dream character about alpha brain. At one point in one of my dreams I even started doing telekinesis which is something that is common for me. So for this morning I have not experienced any brain fog!

I plan on taking one pill 4-5 hours before going to sleep until I run out. I will write a blog each morning describing my results. So feel free to subscribe to the blog to find out more about my experiences with Alpha Brain.

Why I want to have OOBE’s…

Leave a comment Standard

Out of body experiences. Why? Well, because I have to. I have to. The moment I got into spirituality I wanted to astral project. I tried once and failed back in 2006 or 2007 and eventually found a psychic school where I focused on meditation, clairvoyance and energy healing. This school though was all about being IN the body. Sure there was some discussion and classes in regards to the astral, but most of the classes and trainings were about being present and in your physical body.  It is exactly what I needed at that time in my life and I will continue to use what I learned there the rest of my life. It is also helping me in my process of learning to lucid dream & have OOBE’s.

Some may wonder why someone would even want to do this. Lately, I have wondered the same for myself. Why do I want to do this? It feels the same when I signed up for my first clairvoyant training. I didn’t really know what I was getting into, but I knew I had to do it. This is just something I have to do. There is so much to explore, so much to learn and that is what excites me. I have used my clairvoyance and saw many mental image pictures about astral projection, but only have had a few out of body experiences. I want to do more than just see it, I want to experience it and that is what I am set out to do.

Here is a current list of things I would like to experience out of the body:

  1. I have already had an OOBE and saw my physical body, but I would like to experience this again.
  2. I want to meditate out of body. I want to know what it feels like running energy, getting grounded and using psychic abilities.
  3. I want to explore the planet and the rest of the universe.
  4. I want to gain a better understanding of my soul totality.
  5. I want to gain a better understanding of the astral.
  6. I want to learn the difference between lucid dreaming and astral projection.
  7. I want to visit my akashic records and explore it.
  8. I want to go to my threshold, the place where we go in between life-times.
  9. I want to explore more of my past-lives.
  10. I want to go back in time on the planet and I want to go into the future.
  11. I want to communicate with other beings on the astral.
  12. I want to continue to heal myself.
  13. I want to conquer certain fears I hold onto.
  14. I want to practice playing musical instruments while on the astral.
  15. I want to enhance my creativity.

I could probably think of more but this is a good list to start off with. I have many goals and many things I would like to experience, but I know this is a process. It is going to take some time just figuring the best method for me to have OOBE’s and then it may take some time to have them more frequently and for longer periods of time. I am 3.5 months into my journey of learning lucid dreaming and astral projection and I am stoked. There are times it can be incredibly frustrating but this is just one of those things I can’t let go. This practice really teaches you patience and commitment. Years ago I probably wouldn’t have been ready for this, but now… I am.

3 Months of Dream Journaling

Leave a comment Standard

I have been dream journaling for three months now and it has really helped with my ability to remember my dreams. One might ask, why do you even want to remember your dreams? Well, my main intention for it is to have lucid dreams. What are lucid dreams you ask? It’s a good question because most people do not know what a lucid dream is. It is when you know you are dreaming while you are in a dream. Essentially you wake up in your dream. Pretty cool right?  So, how does dream journaling help with lucid dreaming?

Prior to recording my dreams, I usually did not remember any of my dreams upon awakening. After three months of dream journaling though, now I can remember at least 1-6 dreams per 7-9 hours of sleep. Having a dream journal helps with shining a light on your dream space. Most people don’t think they even dream at night because they can’t remember. If you start recording dreams, you will start to increase your dream recall ability. This helps with bringing awareness to your dream space and having awareness in this particular aspect of your life is exactly what lucid dreaming is all about.

Dreams can be very bizarre, yet as strange as they can be, we don’t question them. Well, what if you did start to question them? What if you asked yourself, “am I dreaming?” Two things could happen, you could somehow convince yourself that everything is normal and carry on as normal or you may realize that of course, it just a dream. That is when you begin having a lucid dream. From that point on you have the potential of controlling your dream.

For most, lucid dreaming seems to be uncommon. Most people I have talked to about it don’t know what it is and never had the experience. To my surprise though I have come across a few people that lucid dream a few times a month or even a few times a week. I personally had one lucid dream when I was younger which was spontaneous. Just recently during my three months of dream journaling and practice, I have had one solid lucid dream. So it seems dream journaling isn’t necessary to lucid dream, but it can certainly help.

For me this is a process of waking up. I love clarity. I love to be aware. I love to know my truth. My journey with clairvoyance has helped me greatly with this in the past. It is also helping me with my journey in lucid dreaming & astral projection. I am very excited with this next part of my spiritual journey. I have a lot of goals with achieving out of body experiences and having lucid dreams and I can’t wait to share that with others. I am also eager to see how this will impact me as a creator; with my writing, filming, music and more.

Are you dreaming?

My First Intentional Lucid Dream

Leave a comment Standard

Finally! I had my first intentional lucid dream and I say intentional because I have had a spontaneous lucid dream before.

Okay, so this whole experience was rather ironic because todays blog was actually going to be about my frustrations with lucid dreaming and how I have to stay focused and committed. Luckily and to my surprise, this is a very different blog.

I waited for my wife to go start work, which is not very far away (she teaches english online in our RV). I have been using my wifes work alarm as a reminder to do the WBTB method (wake back to bed) and then use the MILD technique which entails dream affirmations. I kicked the pets out of the bedroom so I wouldn’t have any distractions as our cat loves to walk on top of me and wake me up.

So, I started with the dream affirmations such as, “I’m going to lucid dream,” or “I will wake up in my next dream…” But that is when things went downhill. My mind became very awake, to the point it was too difficult to fall asleep. Then my cat started scratching and body slamming the door. Suddenly I felt myself getting hungry. All I could think about was how I was frustrated with trying lucid dreaming and astral projection techniques. I thought about how my dream recall seemed to be weakening. I thought about how I could remember more details the week before. I thought what was the point? Why was I meditating? Why I was I putting so much energy into something that wasn’t providing any results. I was frustrated. I almost just got up to start my day early. I thought about my first cup of coffee. But I was still tired. So I turned to my side and just closed my eyes and drifted off.

I had a dream where I was in a house which was actually being used as a set for a TV show. I was in a room where they were not filming and was waiting there with one other person who happened to be dressed up in some strange costume. We got to talking and were joking around about how we were at the bottom of the totem pole regarding our status in the acting world. The dream ended.

A new dream began. It is still blurry to me but what I remember was I was outside with a few people. I mainly remember my wife and some other guy. Something happened that scared everyone and we all became on high alert. I ran down a hill to my wife and this guy who were next to a structure that looked kind of like a fifth wheel RV. I looked down at the ground and saw a weapon on the ground. I wanted a weapon, but this particular one did not seem like it would be useful, so I left it and continued down the hill to investigate. What I remember next is me at the bottom of the hill turning around to look up the hill and that is when I saw that everyone was gone. The guy was gone, my wife not there and that structure disappeared. It was an empty hill. And that is when it hit me. I AM DREAMING. It is one of the coolest feelings to have that run through your head. My mind felt so clear in that moment. Immediately after I told myself REMAIN CALM… and so i did. I didn’t feel scared or anxious. I started having thoughts about using my psychic abilities, like to use my clairvoyance or to get myself grounded, but I thought I should just explore because I didn’t want the dream to end. I got up on the ledge and pulled myself up and started walking up another part of the hill. As I was walking though, I heard someone behind me say hello. I immediately didn’t like the energy of the voice. I didn’t like the tone. I turned around and didn’t see anyone, but there were a lot trees in the way. What I did see was an owl in a tree. I sensed it was the owl that was trying to talk to me. So, I used telekinesis to pull the bird out of the tree and had it right in front of me, but then I woke up. Haha. The dream was short, just like the spontaneous lucid dream that I had when I was younger, but finally – I did it!

I was so frustrated. I wasn’t going to throw in the towel, but I was definitely going to write about how irritated I was and try to remind myself to stay on track. It’s funny, it seems when you are about to give up or just kind of let go or stop trying so hard, things seem to fall in place.

Anyway, I am super excited. I can’t wait to have more lucid dreams (hopefully longer dreams) and share them with you 🙂

Astral Projection: Vibrational State

Leave a comment Standard

Well, it happened again! I reached the vibrational state. Again for those that do not know what this is all about, it is a state in which you enter prior to having an out of body experience. I have been practicing dream recall and and astral projection for just over a month now and finally – I am making progress.

I woke up around 3AM this morning and decided to make an attempt at astral projection.  I tried a different sleeping position and it seemed to work because it has was the furthest I ever got with sleep paralysis. I will stop here. I can hear everyone thinking – why the fuck would you want to get into sleep paralysis, that sounds scary. Haha! Well, when you first start to do it, it is a little scary to be honest, but after a while you start to get used to it.

Anyway, this was the furthest I have went with putting my body to sleep. It felt very different this time, like I could really feel my body tightening up and really losing control of my body. It took me a while just to get my breathing down and then I became more calm.  After being in this state for a while, I decided to stop. I didn’t like the position I was in and I didn’t feel like it was progressing so I just stopped. So – I went to sleep.

I started to have a dream where I was at an RV Park with my wife. For some reason I was holding a mail box, like the entire mailbox – pole and box together. I thought it would be smart to put it in the truck and then drive to our spot. When I went around the corner our truck was no longer there. I found this odd. Once that happened as I was trying to walk forward I began floating. Bam! I ended up back in my physical body with a loud sound in my head and then the vibrations hit me. I felt like I was on my way to leaving, but then everything stopped. I was sad, but again still excited because I am making progress.

With finally hitting this stage, I feel better. For a while there I felt like I was never going to get anywhere. Now I imagine it will take some time to get past this vibrational state and finally project!

Astral Projection: My Progress…

Leave a comment Standard

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…

Learning Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

I started to do a very extensive healing on myself. One that I would only normally do for clients that were long distance. When I did this, experienced a very vivid dream. And that is where it all started… Well, actually it all started back in 2006…

When i started to get into spirituality, the first thing I wanted to do was to astral project. I didn’t have any success, but I did start taking meditation classes at a psychic school. From there I entered a year long clairvoyant training and then went on to do more spiritual trainings. Over the course of my entire life, I have had three lucid dreams. 

  1. I was in my late teens, living at my parents and I fell asleep in my room.  I woke up in my dream and came to realize I could control my dream, so I decided to manifest a Rammstein Concert right in front of me. And…. that is exactly what happened. The dream didn’t last long though.
  2. I was living in Chicago, probably in my early 20’s and fell asleep in my apartment. I woke up in my parents house and it was dark. I noticed my glowing arms and then looked at the wall. I thought to myself, let’s see what happens if I put my hand through the wall. I started to put my hand through the wall and it felt very dense. At that point I got scared and woke up in my bed in Chicago.
  3. The last lucid dream I had happened in Chicago. I was at a friends house sleeping on the floor. I woke up in my dream and it was pitch black all around. I noticed light below me and shifted my attention there. I looked down and started to recognize my two friends sitting in the living room. I then noticed my physical body sleeping on the floor. I got scared and woke up.

Despite having an affinity for dreaming, for many years I went without keeping a dream journal or sometimes not even remembering my dreams. But that is all changing now. I have been keeping a dream journal for at least a week now and have attempted to Astral Project numerous times. I have failed every time, but I am making progress. It is this process of letting go of fear and dropping expectations. Essentially, I get comfortable in bed and consciously start to put my body to sleep while keeping my mind awake. It is the most bizarre experience I’ve had in a long time. What starts to happen is my legs and arms start to lose feeling and go numb. Then this numb feeling climbs up to my chest and that is when my heart rate picks up and I feel like i might die. I tried a few more times and finally moved beyond this. Another weird thing is when your lips, tongue and throat start going numb. This is also a very uncomfortable stage to work through. You have to keep yourself propped up just enough so saliva will just fall down your throat so you don’t have the urge to swallow. Once you try to move, it slows down and even reverses this whole process of putting your body to sleep. 

There are a few stages that follow putting your body to sleep that I have not gotten to yet, but once I do I will write a blog about it. I am really excited about this. I am just going to keep going until I have my first astral projection. I imagine from that point things will get a little easier. I really wonder how succeeding at this will affect me as a creator. I feel as though I could really enhance my creativity. 

Anyway that is what I have been up to lately. My wife and I are leaving Tucson, AZ and will be heading to southern California for the winter. Until next time…
