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.

Premonitions

Leave a comment Standard

I had an interesting dream this morning. It was the last dream that I could recall. It wasn’t a lucid dream, but it ended up being a premonition. The dream was of me simply seeing a screen and I was on a Skype call with a woman with dark hair. Suddenly, the call got disconnected and then I woke up from the dream. Well, I did not think anything of it, however, once I started my job (teaching English online) I received a call from a woman with long dark hair. Similar to the one in my dream. Well, after a few minutes, the call got disconnected and it immediately reminded me of my dream.

I love working in this space. I have a great affinity for it and I feel as though I am just at the very beginning. It feels similar to when I was first learning clairvoyance. I’m a dreamer, but I always thought of it in a way of someone who just aims for their dreams. I didn’t fully realize that I would get this interested in lucid dreaming and astral projection – but I love it. There is just so much to learn and explore. This is something I am very passionate about and look forward to mastering.

Lately I have been dreaming about lucid dreaming, spirituality and astral projection. In one of my recent dreams it was a dream character that indirectly tipped me off that I was dreaming. He did not just come out and say, “Andrew – you’re dreaming,” but it was the topic of spirituality that caused me to do a reality check in the dream. I then became lucid in that particular dream, however, it doesn’t always work. I’ve had many dreams recently where there are these conversations around dreaming, but I don’t wake up fully in the dream.

I find the different types of dreams very fascinating. Some dreams I feel like I am just watching a movie and others I feel as though I am an active character in some sort of plot. Some dreams are more vivd than others and some dreams I even have some small degree of control. Then of course – the lucid dreams. I’m still working on being able to have them more often and to be able to stabilize them. This is process though. I am on journey and it is a lot of fun 🙂

Are you dreaming?

Being Present

Leave a comment Standard

All my spiritual training has been about being in the body, being present. That is where the magic is at and I absolutely love experiencing it. I’ve been spending a lot of time learning about lucid dreaming and astral projection and what I am beginning to see and realize is that the more you can be present in your waking life, the more you can be present in a dream or out of body.

I know all sorts of visual techniques and energy work that help with being present, but I am trying something new and that is simply just sitting in meditation for 30 minutes and focusing on my breath. By focusing on your breath, you are more likely to be in present time. And by focusing only on my breath it seems easier to not have a million thoughts racing through my head. I am going to try to do this different and simple exercise in the morning and evening. The idea is that when you mediate in the morning, you are reconnecting with your body and setting the tone for you day. When you meditate at night you are ending your day and setting the tone for your dreams.

I love those moments where suddenly everything syncs up and you find yourself centered. You have that “ah ha” moment where you realize – I’m present! It’s a very joyful feeling. You feel as though nothing else matters in that moment, but what you are seeing and experiencing. Time actually seems to go out the window. You simply have showed up and connected with your body more deeply.

Just as I am typing this I realize that the moment I had yesterday, where I realized I was in the moment, it feels very similar to when you wake up in a dream and realize that you are dreaming. They are both very exciting and joyful experiences.

Whether or not you are interested in lucid dreaming or astral projection, being present in your waking life is really a blessing. It beats dwelling on the past and worry about the future. All the bullshit just fades away.

Spiritual Perspective on the Stages of Sleep

Leave a comment Standard

Today I did a free reading for someone who won via this blog on lucid dreaming and astral projection. After doing this reading I feel as though I have done enough readings and personal meditation to get a good idea of the spiritual perspective on the stages of sleep.

I’m not going to go into the scientific side of the stages of sleep simply because that information is easily accessible via the web, however, what you won’t find typically is the perspective that I am going to share.

NREM Stage 1: when I look at this stage clairvoyantly for others, what I see is someone simply getting comfortable and relaxed in bed. I also see the astral body becoming stimulated.

NREM Stage 2: in stage two I see the astral body lift out of the physical body and hovers just above. I also tend to see imagery appear just in front of the face of the astral body. 

NREM Stage 3: in the third stage I typically see two things; 1) the individuals astral body remains hovering above their physical body or 2) they are unconsciously gliding throughout what some would call the real time zone or what I would simply call it – the first level the astral. It is a lower level of the astral that mostly resembles the physical world. If people are not floating above their physical body, I see people floating throughout their house, moving through walls and sometimes doing activities they might do in their day to day. 

REM: Once someone hits this stage, what I see is that the pineal gland of the physical body stimulates and then the pineal gland in the astral body lights up and then imagery appears out in front of the astral body face. From here the astral body moves to a specific   area of the astral and based off the image that is in front of them dictates the dream that forms around them.

If someone were to wake up in a dream and knew they were dreaming while in the dream – that is lucid dreaming. From there you can go on to have greater control of the dream. One thing interesting about this though is that I have had dreams where I had some level of control but I did not know I was dreaming.

This information is based off of readings I have done for others and personal meditation.   This is what I have seen consistently in most people, but I have seen some exceptions to this.

Find Your Freedom,

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!

5 Months of Dream Journaling: Dreaming about Lucid Dreaming

Leave a comment Standard

Okay, so I have been keeping a dream journal for officially five months now. Wow! I am really happy I have been staying committed to this because I went from not remembering my dreams to now remembering numerous dreams each morning. Occasionally I wake up from sleep and don’t remember any of my dreams, but for the most part I am always remembering.

One thing I am beginning to notice is that I am starting to understand my dreams more, not all of them, but some. I can recall a dream and then understand what that dream is about and how it pertains to my waking life. As of lately, I am having conversations with other dream characters about lucid dreaming and astral projection. You would think that if I am having these conversations that I would become lucid after them, but in the past few nights – that has not been the case.

What I am learning is that this is a process; remembering your dreams, having vivid dreams, lucid dreams, having more consistent lucid dreams, sustaining the lucid dreams, etc. I am at a point where I can have lucid dreams, but just not as consistent or as long as I would like them to be. It is going to take time, but I am okay with that. I am enjoying the ride.

It’s fun waking up in the morning and realizing that I am making progress. Sure there are some mornings where I feel like I am stuck or going backwards, but I have realized when that happens it is usually because of stress or I am about to make a breakthrough in my dream space. It is funny because when I have a lucid dream, it is usually when I least expect it. When I am the most frustrated and just feel like I am ready to give up (which I won’t) that is usually when the lucid dream occurs. It is strange, but that has been my experience so far.

I love the inward journey. I believe that is really how you create change. By looking within and validating your truth, the negativity starts to fade away. With lucid dreaming, there is so much to explore. My excitement is through the roof!

Where are you at with your practice these days?
