Thank you for the Vids I think I needed the inspiration to move me forward, I really loved the Shaman healing vid at the end. I also had to watch the
Ayahuasca one too, I have always loved the mystery behind the shamans it's truly fascinating.
Anyway after watching the videos last night I got myself off to bed, though it would be a good time to induce a lucid dream. I have some IPod Tracks
(I-Dozer) sort of thing and I usually play them as I lay on my back, well last night away I went put the headphones on relaxed and watched myself
drift into sleep. I don’t really remember what happened but I sort of jolted again, this time I leaned over turned my IPod off and pushed it off
the side of the bed (didn’t want to move too much) I then rolled back over so I was lay on my back again, seems when I lay on my back I get better
I remember trying to visualize a dream or a scene I could drift into and I almost had it, the scene was out of a game I have been playing. I could
make out the slight detail even color, as soon as I tried to focus more on the scene it seemed to fade. I did this two or three times with not much
luck; however actually drifting into something other than a black void is the first for me. I just need to learn how to keep the awareness without
bringing my attention back to my sleeping mind. I suppose its just practice really along with intention but is there anything (e.g. exercises) I
could do to work keeping that awareness.
I think I forgot pretty much everything after that until I woke up around 9am, I set my alarm hoping I would catch the REM part of sleep. Must have
been slightly off time but I did remember something when I went back to sleep.
I was on a stairwell in some Victorian mansion/hotel, I remember my father saying something to me and I took it the wrong way. We were both at the
top of the stair well at the time, after my little temper tantrum I ran 2 or 3 flights down these stairs and proceeded to walk through this huge solid
wood door, it led to a room in total darkness. I shut the door behind me and reached for the light, just as I reached for the light I saw this white
figure behind me I was certain it was a ghost my heart was racing and I completely froze, I then felt this thing pulling me towards it until I went
through it. Everything went white and the next thing I woke up in bed feeling really cold with my heart still racing.
So all in all it was brilliant progress for me last night and I think inducing a lucid dream is 100% the way to go for me, but as I said I just need
some form of exercise to work on keeping my awareness as I drift over into sleep.
PS: This may be a long shot, but talking of Shamans I once saw a YouTube radio interview with this guy who went to the Amazon and tried Ayahuasca. He
talks about his experiences and other '___' experiments, there is one experiment with '___' where all the test students had the same out of body
experience, in this OOBE they all went onboard this Alien craft, the amazing thig was none of them spoke to each other beforehand about their
experiences, yet they all saw the same thing. I have been trying to locate that interview for some time, it may have been Coast to Coast but I’m
not too sure, if anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
