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.

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…
