My life.

Leave a comment Standard

34, lying on the couch, feeling like I’m 23
11 years passed and I still have the same dream
Somewhere up in the sky, floating above me
An image burning bright, I can so clearly see
One that I’m struggling to pull to the ground
All I’ve got is silence, I can’t make a wave, I can’t make a sound
It’s strange to be happy but still inside somewhere there is a frown
The halls are narrow, these halls are dark
My god it would be a miracle if somehow I could create a spark
There hasn’t been a fire here in years
Just dark colored walls plastered with my fears
A boy inside, his screams are sincere
The man I am, struggles to hear
What will it take to wake up and let it all out?
Have you ever sat around wondering about all the talent that you have
And why it’s packed away collecting dust, it makes you blue, it makes you mad
Some days you paint it black and others you feel the light
But what’s going to make it alright?
I guess I got more battles, because this war here is called my life.

Six Months of learning Lucid Dreaming

Comments 2 Standard

Okay so it has officially been six months of learning lucid dreaming and astral projection. I find it so interesting how this all started from just having one vivid dream. Anyway, I thought this would be good to write about so I can reflect on what I have achieved so far and also to let others know that the art of lucid dreaming is a skill that takes time to learn.

Although my dream recall ability has gotten better over time, it does fluctuate due to stress and running into energy blocks within yourself. I have been consistent with dream journaling and consider it a very important aspect of learning how to lucid dream. I personally believe it would be a mistake not to dream journal.

I had my first lucid experience when I was probably about 18 years old, but I had no idea what lucid dreaming was then. When I actually discovered lucid dreaming and started to practice it took me almost 2.5 months to have my first lucid dream. I’m sure there are people who have gotten quicker results and perhaps some people who have taken much longer. Everyone is different.

I started practicing 11/15/18 and here is a log of my lucid dreams & OOBE’s:

1/25/19 – My first intentional lucid dream

1/27/19 – I had a sequence of very short lucid dreams where I was becoming lucid and quickly losing lucidity. Most of my lucid dreams are short, but these were VERY short. 

2/14/19: I woke up and saw hypnopompic imagery and it felt as though I was going to go straight into a lucid dream, but quickly decided to roll out of my body. I got out but felt so heavy and everything seemed dark. That is when I convinced myself I physically fell out of bed. I then crawled back in bed and then just woke up to realize it was an out of body experience. 

3/11/19: – First time doing a reality check in a lucid dream

3/30/19 – First lucid dream where I experienced flying.

4/27/19: First Lucid dream where I tried telling other dream characters that it was a dream.

5/9/19: First time I turned a nightmare into a lucid dream. I also performed the nose reality check for the first time in this lucid dream. 

I’ve had many more types of experiences throughout these past six months; dreams about lucid dreaming and astral projection, regular dream of having astral projection experiences, lower level lucidity in dreams where I experienced myself floating throughout the dream due to seeing my reflection, experiencing the vibrational stage, partial sleep paralysis, etc.

I’m happy with my results, but I have long way to go. I want to improve my dream recall, increase my rate of lucid dreams and be able to stabilize and have more vivid lucid dreams. This will all take time and that is okay. I am just going to continue dream journaling, doing reality checks and meditating.

I have also been experimenting with various supplements simply out of curiosity. I have no intention as of now to use any of these supplements on a regular basis. This is more for the sake of experimenting to see what kind fo results I get. I have tried Alpha Brain which really helped with dream recall and having a few vivid dreams. I have tried tea with valerian in it and I have gotten lucid from that, although I don’t know if that was simply a coincidence or not though. I’m also experimenting with Choline and 5-HTP. There are more supplements I do want to try, but will try them later.

Aside from dream journaling, reality checks and meditation, I have noticed (clairvoyantly) that getting enough sun exposure and doing cardio can also help with having more lucid dreams.

Anyway, I am just going to keep reporting my experiences and perhaps after another six months I will do a full year report on lucid dreaming & astral projection.

Alpha Brain for Lucid Dreaming: Day 13

Leave a comment Standard

Okay, so I had a wild experience last night. I took two alpha brain pills around 6PM and went to sleep a little after 9PM. I experimented with something new last night which is called a ramp timer. I used a YouTube video that was about 3 hours in length and the first 60 minutes is just silence. After the first hour there are beeping sounds that occur every 5 minutes. The idea is that this is to help you induce a lucid dream or astral projection. So, I thought I would give it a try.

Okay, so I was having a dream where I was in a hotel room lying in bed. In this dream I was also doing the ramp timer experiment. I was lying there, heard a sound go off and I started projecting out of my body. I only lifted a foot or so out of my body and then returned. I changed my sleeping position, tried going back to sleep and awaited the next sound to go off five minutes later. Eventually I thought to myself that it was taking too long and once I had that thought I launched out of my bed and started flying in the sky. I felt like was going very fast and I was surprised how long it was lasting because normally my previous experiences end quickly.

I’m not going to go into the entire dream experience, but at one point in my dream I was able to manifest a dream character, but the person that appeared was not who I was expecting, so I guess I was not specific enough. The interesting thing about this whole experience is that it was all a DREAM. In this dream I felt like I was having a real astral projection, but it was not. It wasn’t even a lucid dream because I didn’t have that moment in the dream where I was like, “Oh! I AM DREAMING!” But I did have a good degree of control in the dream. This explains some dreams that I have had in the past where I was not having a full on lucid dream but I was able to control aspects of the dream.

When I was waking up on my real bed I realized oh it wasn’t a real astral projection it was just a dream. It is kind of cool though because the feeling of projecting in the dream felt so real. I think it can almost help me prepare for future astral projections. So, with the combination of alpha brain, the ramp timer, meditation, reality checks and binaural beats – I have been able to have some pretty cool dream experiences. I have three more days left of experimenting with Alpha Brain. If I have any more experiences I will report back!

Alpha Brain for Lucid Dreaming: 1 week

Leave a comment Standard

Okay, so I have been taking Alpha Brain for about 1 week now. I have been experimenting with different times and how many pills I take (1-2). My dream recall has been very good and very early this morning was my first vivid dream while taking this supplement.  I have been keeping a dream journal now for almost 5 months and after typing in my journal I have come to realize that this mornings journal entry has been the longest one yet.

It is hard to tell whether or not this is just part of my natural progression of dreaming and dream recall or it is the supplement doing its work. I have a feeling it is both. I’m not sure what other peoples experiences are, but aside from the experiencing good dream recall immediately, it has taken one full week to have a really vivid dream. My vivid dream though was more like a vivid nightmare, which is unusual for me because in the past 5 months I can only recall having like one nightmare. I don’t think it had anything to do with the supplement but more to do with some of the stress I have felt in the past few days.

My nightmare though wasn’t a typical nightmare. It started off normal, then turned into a nightmare and then ended on a positive and surprising note. In the past if I had a nightmare, the whole thing was just bad. So this one was very different. This is also my first dreaming experience in the past 5 months where after I woke up and started writing down the dream, I had an epiphany. I actually understood the dream and I think that is because it was a very full dream and I could recall it mostly from start to finish. Most of my dreams are just very strange and don’t make much sense or at least the meaning isn’t very clear to me. This nightmare / dream was very different in that regard.

I don’t know how many pills i have left, but I will just continue taking them and report back what I notice. I still meditate and do reality checks daily to help to have a higher chance of having a lucid dream, so we shall see…

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.

Flying in a Lucid Dream

Leave a comment Standard

I’ve had dreams in the past where I found myself levitating and floating around, but I don’t recall a dream where I was flying. Just recently though I had a very short lucid dream that involved flying. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Okay so I was asleep but my wife was still up teaching. When she came to bed, she woke me up unintentionally. Once I was awake I had difficulty going back to sleep. I tossed and turned and at some point I finally fell asleep. I recall having a dream where I was in the house that I grew up in. I was in the main living room and it was dark, except for some light coming from a closed door that leads to the kitchen. I knew my father was in there and I could hear him listening to once of my youtube videos. I decided not to enter the room. Suddenly, I find myself at the end of my parents driveway. It is snowing quite heavily and the snow flakes are very big. I thought to myself – is this how dreams begin? In other words I was curious about how I ended up in a different place so quickly. I start to walk down the driveway and I have this thought that maybe I am dreaming, but I doubt it. To my surprise though I realize I am dreaming. Immediately, I start to fly down the driveway with great ease. It is so effortless. While flying I have the thought that I will start to lose consciousness. Fade to black.

It was a very short lucid dream, but I learned two things from this: 1) For someone who is new to lucid dreaming, it may be best to avoid things like flying and telekinesis. For me, these things seem to come natural, but generate too much excitement that it wakes me up so quickly from the lucid dream. 2) The way I became lucid was from questioning how I ended up in a new scene so quickly. So, asking yourself during the day, “how did I get here?” – is a great reality check.

It is exciting to have a lucid dream, but it is frustrating that it doesn’t last so long. I realize though that I am new to this and it will take some time to get grounded in this practice. Once I can remain calm and composed, perhaps then I can have longer lucid dreams.

With that said, are you dreaming?

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.

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew
