Astral Projection

lazy afternoon

May 4, 2004 Tuesday

Europe - Day 4 / Geneva, Switzerland

Astral projection
While sleeping, I had a sleep paralysis...a trigger for out-of-body experience. I was well aware of this, considering my dismal failures in the past. For the first time, I felt myself hovering close to the ceiling. But it was pitch black. I couldn't see anything. I spun myself like a top and seemed to be unable to leave the room. I then gradually returned back to my body and continued my sleep. I didn't bother to wake up. However, the experience was still vivid even in the morning when I woke up. As vivid as it was, I could not ascertain if it was indeed an out of body experience or just a dream. I'll never know unless I have means to measure it my usual deck of cards that I can use for verification. This is a good sign. The last sleep paralysis I had, I struggled hard to separate but could not. The intense struggle was what woke me up.

I woke up at 2pm, obviously still having a 6-hour jet lag. The body felt different. I didn't even bother leaving the hotel room. I just finished my curriculum vitae , resume and the blurb for the LoneRider posting. I've decided to just be lazy this day.

I was invited to join Ginny, Kishore and Eibe for dinner at this Chinese restaurant. Eibe was buying. It was a pleasant conversation touching off on human rights, art and global affairs. According to Ginny, they represent (together with Joe and Milune), the hardcore group of the committee.

Returning back to the hotel after dinner, Ginny and I talked again about stuff...anting-anting, love of country (which I still find abstract), etc. It's close to 3am again and it's time to go to sleep.

3 Steps to Lucid Dreaming

Websites about Lucid Dreaming

  1. lucidology 101 - a website devoted to astral travel through lucid dreaming with focus on Exit techniques
Astral Projection Tips
  1. do it early morning like 5am when the Seratonin is high instead of at night when you are tired and likely to fall into normal sleep
  2. do not attempt to Exit during the vibration phase. Stay relaxed and let it settle down. When it gets quiet, that's the time to induce the Exit
  3. OOBE is likely to happen if you sleep in your normal position - it doesn't have to be on your back. You can sleep on your side
  4. keep the room completely dark and quiet
  5. meditate for about 10 minutes before going to bed. This relaxes the body and mind and allows better sleep
  6. while going to sleep, visualize the environment you want to be in...see the colors, feel the texture, smell the air. Or, read your dream journal and relive your previous night's dream. Tell your mind this is not real and that you are already in a lucid dream. Give yourself permission to live your fantasies - fly, stay under water, etc. As you fall into sleep, keep saying that you will have a lucid dream.
  7. set up an alarm around 4am. Wake up and do some work for about 20 minutes and go back to sleep. This return to sleep hastens lucid dreaming.
