Good experiment, I kind of off an on have been working with this. I will tell you my experiences, I know the monks practise something similar.
When going to bed, I'll try and hold on to my conciousness, usually when I fall to sleep I don't notice it, but I will wake up, with a feeling of
"what the hell was that"... whatever happened, I did not expect it, and I guess a bit of fear from inexperience took over, and caused me to wake up
with my heart beating.
Other times I successfully followed the transition..a bit anyway... you could say there was like 15 minutes of missing time, but I started dreaming
right aware, or rather.. was aware that I was dreaming, I think i was lucid all night... i remember learning SO much and being upset that I would
forget it all as the night went on.. (I was aware of my dreamstate all night.)
Other times when I wake up, my head will be swimming and its like dreams want to keep playing out.. if I'm tired enough, what I will do is close my
eyes, and try and let the concepts come in my mind, the "random thoughts".. I hold on to these and at one point there is a bit of confusion, you
could call it that... but these ideas in your mind transition and become more and more real until you realise your standing in them, and you know your
not awake anymore.. another way to lucid dream..
If i wake up in this state... i'll try and go back to sleep and tell myself "i want sleep paralysis"... and sometimes I get it, this is how I
I've waken up before, keeping my eyes half open and am still watching a dream play out but I know i'm awake too..
One time I tried a technique where I focussed on my heart and pulse when I went to sleep.. it was an astral projection technique... i woke up with
sleep paralysis and I felt a big spinning sphere in my chest, the width of my torso, spinning so fast, it was too much for me to handle, I didn't
know what to do with this, I think my solution was to just go back to sleep.
I'm trying to develope this transition phase you speak of and kind of get to that point of full time conscious awareness if I choose to... or at
least witness the transition, I have no doubt that it is something incredible like I've been told.
