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?

the Importance of Dreaming

Comments 2 Standard

I have the opportunity to speak to people from all around the world almost everyday. At some point in my conversations I always like to ask – what are your dreams? Some people will tell me what they are and others say they don’t have any dreams… I don’t buy it. I think we all have dreams, small or big, I think we all have them, but might not be aware of them. Some people think they don’t have dreams when they sleep. Well actually, you are most likely having numerous dreams throughout the night, but again, you may just not remember. 

I have an obsession with dreams; day dreams, sleeping dreams and the dreams in which you pursue in your life. I think a lot of people may believe that day dreaming is just a natural phenomena that occurs, but has no use whatsoever. I disagree. Day Dreaming for me is a way in which I generate new ideas that aide in my creative process. What about sleeping dreams? What if you could wake up in your dreams and know you are dreaming, while in the dream? Some call this dream yoga and others may call this lucid dreaming. It is actually scientifically proven. Aside from having fun, some say lucid dreaming can be used to heal yourself and to work on new skills. I am still new to lucid dreaming so the fun part I fully understand, however, I have not had enough experiences to use lucid dreams for healing and personal growth. I kind of get it though… What if you were having a nightmare in your sleep and suddenly realized it was simply a bad dream you were having? Once you become aware, then you can change what is happening. You can end the nightmare. For those who experience recurring nightmares, this would be huge. You can apply this to regular life too. Perhaps you are unhappy, I mean very unhappy. Maybe it has to do with a certain aspect of your life. What if what you were doing had nothing to do with your truth? What if you were just living someone else’s expectation? After a while that could certainly start to feel like a nightmare. Now what if you start to realize that and start to make changes? What if you start to move in a new direction, a direction of authenticity? Perhaps now you are seeing the similarities with sleeping dreams & dreams  your pursue…

Some people say they don’t have dreams for this life. I disagree. It can be simple, small or a massive dream – but it is there, waiting for you to wake up to it. For some reason it seems we are led to believe that because we don’t remember our dreams (while asleep or for your life) then we just don’t have any. And sometimes for those that do have an awareness of the dream they want to pursue feel as though it isn’t a real possibility. I disagree. 

I have been learning how to lucid dream for over two months now and it is not easy. I have been pursuing my dreams since I was about twenty-three. Again, it is not easy. I think they are important though. I think they are the reasons we are here. Dreams are highly desired experiences we crave. Your purpose? Well perhaps it has to do with the WHY you want to have these particular experiences? What will you learn from these experiences? How might you share your wisdom with the world? 

Dream on.

Latest thoughts on Lucid Dreaming vs Astral Projection

Comment 1 Standard

Okay so I recently uploaded a podcast about my latest theory in regards to lucid dreaming and astral projection. In a previous blog I wrote on how I think they are essentially the same, but thought that the approach was different. Anyway, as I like to keep an open mind throughout this journey and with that said – my thoughts have changed about this subject. 

I can’t remember but in a recent blog or podcast I mentioned that there are three factors in which I believe that will affect your experience:

  1. how conscious are you?
  2. are you a point of light or do you have a fully formed astral body?
  3. where are you on the astral?

After further research and looking at this clairvoyantly, I think that I am missing another factor:

  1. Are you in a dream?

Regardless of lucid dreaming or astral projection, I have always thought you were out of body, but now I do see more of a difference between these two and that is the last factor – are you in a dream? 

What I think is that when you are leaving your body to go dream, you generate a dream through intention which then forms into a mental image picture and then once you are out onto the astral it manifests into a dream. I think with lucid dreaming, you are simply just aware you are in a dream, but perhaps not fully conscious that you are in a dream ON the astral. So of course this goes back to the first factor. 

I imagine though the experience of being in a dream on the astral vs just being out on the astral is a different experience. The interesting thing here is that while you are in a lucid dream, what if you just dissolve the dream and end up on the astral? Some people report using lucid dreams to go back to their body during sleep paralysis then relaunch into the astral. I have also heard of someone being in a lucid dream and just ending or dissolving the dream to just be out on the astral. 

Anyway, these are my latest thoughts on these subjects. I will continue to keep an open mind throughout this journey as i gain more experience, do more research and look at it all clairvoyantly.

Lucid Dreaming vs Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

Before I get started I just want to make it clear that I am not a seasoned lucid dreamer. With that said this is simply coming from the perspective of a clairvoyant and someone who has only had a few out of body experiences. 

I remember watching two different youtube videos on how you can project from a lucid dream and after hearing the explanation I was little confused because to me it sounds like they are in an out of body state that they are just calling a “lucid dream” and then with intention going back to their physical body while already in an optimal state for projection and then actually project into the astral. Now from what I hear it can be easier to project from a lucid dream than going through sleep paralysis to get to a point of projection. That part makes sense to me because it has not been easy getting through sleep paralysis.

After watching these videos and doing some looking myself (as a clairvoyant) it seems to me that lucid dreaming and astral projection are simply the same expect the how you got there was different. In a lucid dream, you typically go to sleep and are unconscious. Something then happens in the dream and you become lucid and aware. With astral projection you are conscious through the entire experience of leaving your physical body. 

I watched a youtube video recently and the guy was explaining what he thought was the difference between lucid dreams and astral projection. What he said made sense to me. He went on to say how they are all the same, however the main “difference” between them all is how aware you are out of the body. Perhaps it just the level of lucidity is what makes us create different categories. Because when I look it clairvoyantly, they all look the same –  you are out of your physical body and are in the astral. 

People talk about their different experiences when in a lucid dream vs a projection. My theory is that, again, how lucid are you? My other question is, where are you on the astral? How does that affect your “experience?” Do any of these factors cause people to think they are experiencing some other form of a dream experience? I don’t know… Also something to consider is this: are you a point of light out in the astral? Or do you have control over a fully developed astral body? 

What does it mean to be a point of light out in the astral? To me it simply means you the “being”, you the “soul” are out of your physical body with no form, no energetic body. Wait, don’t we all have astral bodies? Well, we all have the ability to generate one, but our experiences both in the body and out of the body can affect our ability to create an astral body and the general form our our dream body. This is why exercise and meditation can be so important. When you exercise you get your energy in movement. If you can move energy throughout the energy system in the physical body, then you can create an astral body much easier. You can also run energy in mediation. You can cycle your own energy throughout your energy system while meditating. I think mediation and exercise directly affect our ability to recall dreams, the overall development of your dream body and can help with having better overall sleep. 

So, to me lucid dreaming and astral projection are the same. I think with both you are just out of your body, but perhaps with a different level of awareness. I also think that if you are just a spec of light vs in control of a dream body will greatly affect the experience. And how developed is your astral body? Certain days might be different. You could be missing an astral leg. Do you have an energy blockage in your actual physical leg? How does affect your dream experience? 

There are so many factors, but I think it is all the same essentially. Keep in mind this is just a theory. I still have a lot of learning to do. Perhaps I will confirm this with having more out of body experiences or perhaps when I have more OBEs I will change my mind.

What are your thoughts?

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!

Waking Up…

Leave a comment Standard

I’ve been keeping a dream log for almost 2 weeks now. It is helping me remember my dreams more. I have been doing visual meditation including work on my astral body and attempted a few astral projections, but have failed. I am getting better at putting my body to sleep. I felt as though I have had two experiences where I was starting to enter the vibrational stage of astral projection, but can’t seem to make any more progress. I haven’t been doing this too long so I need to remind myself to be patient. Putting your body to sleep can be a task on it’s own.

 It is weird to think that we have been living and traveling in a RV for almost 7 months. We have traveled across the entire country. This would be the second time I have achieved this in my life. The first time was by car though and it only took me 1.5 weeks. Traveling is a dream of mine. I imagine I will do it for a long time. Will it always be in a RV? For exploring the U.S. – yes, but going abroad obviously not. There are many countries Heather and I want to visit, but we are still not sure how we want to go about it. 

I miss Tucson. I loved the energy there; warm weather, mountains, the bike path, the city…. A few days before we left I went for a bike ride and forgot how much I loved to bike. Yuma, AZ is similar to Tucson. The weather is good, there are mountains, but it is definitely not the same. I imagine while we are here we will most likely rent an ATV to ride in the desert, visit San Diego, maybe visit Phoenix, AZ, go hiking, etc. It is nice knowing we are not going to freeze our asses off this winter – haha. I am not a fan of the cold. There is one thing that I am having a conflict with and that is I have always loved the ocean, but… I don’t like humidity. Living in the desert for the first time in my life, I have come to really enjoy the warm and dry climate. I am falling more in love with mountains. This is one aspect of traveling that I love – you continue learning, learning more about the Earth, learning more about yourself. 

What I am, well – remembering, is that I love to dream. I love to dream and then go do it. This journey on the road is exactly that. It is by far not a perfect experience. There are things I did not anticipate or expect, but that is life. But I am starting to remember my passion for sleeping dreams. I have an overwhelming excitement and drive in regards to lucid dreaming and astral projection. I love the process of spiritually waking up. I can’t wait to have my first projection. I will definitely share it once it happens. I also look forward to seeing how this whole process affects my creativity and waking life. To be greatly excited to wake up to a wonderful life and to be excited to fall asleep and dream – this is a continuous goal.

If you could paint your life, what would it look like? If you could paint your sleeping dreams, what would they look like? What colors would you use? That prison you may find yourself in doesn’t have to remain… Could you not just paint a new picture and replace it with the old… and like a seed in the earth, would you experience such growth? Would you smile at the magic you have always had? Would you then begin to wake up? Would you then realize, all that you need, maybe it is already inside of you, waiting to be unleashed…

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…
