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 🙂

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!

Psychic School or Cult?

Leave a comment Standard

I know some people have thought it, because I certainly felt the energy over the years. As I have become more comfortable telling people that I went to a psychic school, I’m sure people think it is pretty strange and unusual. And to be honest, it is very different, but I learned more at the psychic school I went to the than the high school I went to.

If you are learning how to see mental image pictures, wave your hands around other people to “heal” them and “read” energy then you must be crazy dude. From an outside perspective, I get it. It’s weird and that is fine, because I am weird, but I love myself. I am okay with my weird.

This blog isn’t to try to prove being psychic is real. I think with anything in life, you have to follow your truth regardless how many people disapprove of it. What I got out of going to a psychic school was turning my abilities back on – such as feeling energy, hearing, seeing and knowing energy. I think people who are not into this could relate to feeling energy or feeling “vibes” but anything beyond that, I seem to lose people.

I focused on clairvoyance, the ability to see yourself, others and the world with clarity. Sounds terrible right? With clairvoyance you can start to see colors, symbols and mental image pictures. When I meditate, I work with colors and mental image pictures quite a lot. Because of clairvoyance I was able to discover so much about myself including who I am and what my dreams are. So there you have it, it must have been a cult… (lol)

I am confident about who I am, what my dreams are and the direction I am heading in my life. Don’t get me wrong, in no way am I perfect or have everything absolutely figured out, but how many people do you know who can answer those questions with certainty?

Being psychic isn’t about guessing the number you are thinking, predicting the future or any of that dumb shit you see on TV. It’s how you perceive energy. It is about your intuition. It is about your creativity. All the things that most traditional schools take a shit on.

Yes I am psychic; I can feel energy, hear energy, see energy and know energy. No… I was not in a cult. I went to a psychic school where I learned about myself in a way that most people will never. I learned to heal myself, respect myself and see my self worth. I am sensitive, creative and very intuitive. I love who I am and I love this crazy ass life I’m living.

Traveling & Making Money Online

Leave a comment Standard

Most people tend to full-time RV when they are retired. Not us. What really helped propel us into this new life style is our passion for adventure and of course selling our dog walking business. No we are not rich, not even close. Hell, we don’t even have a savings. Yes, we have a new business, but we only make a little money from that. Some months for Souls Gone Wild are really good and others are not. That is just the truth at the moment. What allows us to keep on moving are our other jobs. 

My wife and I both teach English online. Heather teaches Chinese children through the platform called VIPKID. I teach on Cambly which allows me to meet people from all around the world. To boil it down, I basically get paid to talk and listen. It is simple and I love it. I log online and wait for incoming calls. Most people want to just talk and some want to go over specific English lessons. When I am not taking a call, I try to relax, edit our youtube videos or work on a blog. What is great about our jobs is that we are both self employed. We can create our own work schedule which works really well when we have travel or adventure days. While these jobs provide a lot of freedom and we enjoy them, they are still jobs. They keep us on the road, but eventually we would love for our youtube channel and blog to take off. 

I was really hoping for a smooth transition from our dog walking business to teaching yoga & meditation. It has not been that easy. We have had some awesome months and some difficult months. But, we are still here… in the middle of a desert – haha! We love traveling and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than where we are now. I love traveling full-time. I love the fact that this winter we are not going to have to just deal with the cold. As a matter of fact, we will be in southern California where I greatly look forward to riding four-wheelers out in the sand dunes. Fuck yeah!

The goal is to keep traveling and teaching English, yoga and meditation. We don’t really have a “plan” and that is what is such a relief. We are really learning as we go. With that, I have to ask – what are you current goals? What are you currently learning in life?

Moving Day

Leave a comment Standard

Today is moving day. I’m always conflicted about moving because a part of me is excited and another part of me gets stressed out – haha. Actually today we are not moving very far. We will still be residing just outside of Chicago. We have already seen our new campground and t is really nice, but the only thing I am not looking froward to is how close all the RVs are to one another. At our current camp site we have a lot of space – it’s nice! One really cool thing though is that at the new RV park we will be just a few feet from a small lake. I love being near water, so that makes me happy. Being at our new campground will make things easier for us because we can walk to the yoga studio we teach at. We are also closer to grocery stores and gas stations. 

We have two months left in Illinois. After that we will continue heading west. We know Missouri is our next stop, but after that we don’t know. Most likely we will end up in the southwest to avoid the cold weather during fall / winter. Although I have seen parts of the Grand Canyon, exploring the southwest will be pretty much a new experience for me. 

Speaking of new experiences, yesterday we went to a car show yesterday which was fun. Got to meet a lot of cool people. The did a cruise around the town so I was able to get some good footage of it. Today is the second day of the show, but because we have to pack up and move, I’m not sure how much of the show we will even be able to see. I posted just a few pictures on our facebook page and will be posting the video soon from yesterday so go ahead and check out YouTube channel in the next few days.

Full Moon Yoga

Leave a comment Standard

Last night we had the full moon yoga event that the Gypsy Haven. Heather did a great job teaching and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. We got to see shooting stars while doing yoga and eventually saw the full moon rising at the end of the class. Doing yoga outdoors is a very different experience, but I really like it and almost prefer it!

The Gypsy Haven is a store in Elgin, IL that has the following; Witchcraft and Wiccan Supplies, New Age, Pagan, Metaphysical, Spiritual Products and Gifts! The owners are really cool and they also have an online store:

http://www.onlinewiccansupplies.com

Yesterday was full of yoga and meditation. I taught a clairvoyant class over the phone to student on deprogramming the second chakra. We worked on clearing out programming that just doesn’t belong there anymore and replaced it with his energy and information. That is something we do for all the major chakras in the Language of Spirit Training.

I like going to the Gypsy Haven because people get what I do. I don’t feel judged which is a relief. The more classes and events we do, the more excited I get. I really love what we do and can’t wait to see how this journey continues to unfold. 

We will be moving to a new campground soon, but will still reside in the outskirts of Chicago. As long as the event doesn’t get cancelled I will most likely be filming a car show this weekend and will post a video and / or pictures on our facebook page. Go like our page now to follow our journey!
