Hi guys! Can anyone help with the below? I do regular reality checks, and get lucid very often.
Here is my experience from earlier today..
This one was amazing. Was very tired anyway, and was able to create a dream whilst trying to go to sleep, and entered the dream, thinking it was real life. It was actually a girl who I haven't met yet, but have been introduced to online,and had juat been speaking to her on messenger service.
I don't realise I'm dreaming, but I check my watch, and realise that yippee, actually I am dreaming, and manage to leave my sleeping body, walk to one of the walls in the house, and then try and put my band through it. Of course I could, and then continued my lucid travels . I love jumping through walls or Windows or off massive cliffs, as I know there's no risk.
I was able to spin around a lot, and maintain lucidity for quite some time, but did lose it a few times, but was able to easily slip back into the same setting each time.
My focus here was to see an ex girlfriend, and have find her. I was having trouble with character creation. I tried a few techniques, like saying to myself, OK she is next door, I will go there and see her.... But was unable to generate her... Until later when I briefly did, I was basically just really concentrating on believing that I was able to. I jumped through the kitchen window, and ran down the garden, whwre I believed I could find her waiting for me. As I was running down the garden, I realised it was dark, (I am not fully in control of the dreamscape clearly, but maybe it helped me form a brief image of her....and I did see her, briefly, laying down with a hat on, where I thought she would be. But then her face turned to someone elses... And I sort of moved my attentions elsewhere.
At this point, I started to be more aware that I was probably more awake thst asleep, and was experiencing sleep paralysis, and false awakenings, constantly checking my watch and it showing completely random times (my most common reality check)
.... I have had this many many time,the lucidity, but never with the sleep paralysis state aswell, and then have been able to turn this into an OBE.(I used the imagining pulling my self up with an imaginary rope, I've read this is a common method) ... I have to say, it felt like the most powerful feeling. I was able to imagine lifting myself out of my body, and decided to melt through the ceiling into the room above. I did this a few times and have found it to be extremely pleasurable feeling,which is very hard to describe..
What happened here, and how can I improve character generation, and turn sleep paralysis more, into that amazing lofting,lifting, levitating type feeling. Is it really just about embracing the paralysis and letting yourself go? As that can be Scary,but I know it's not dangerous ... Does anyone have any ideas on the above map??
Thank you all!!
