Threw lots of practice and trying new techniques have found a way to stimulate a part of the brain that either lets one leave your body or gives the imprestion of it. The occiput node on the brain is stimulated when slight pressure is put while by putting ones hand behind your head while sleeping. Also a very uncomfortable way to stimulate this is to sit in a rigid chair with a greater pressure to the mid part of the back. My experiences have included being aware and able to recocgnize myself as asleep but in a dream state, manipulate what would be called astral hands and movements in earlier stages of this i didnt have much control either a sensation of floating or swimming and seeing surroundings in a hazy view. Later experiments allowed me to materialize astral objects and use them I.E a bic lighter, pencil and be able to look into a mirror and change shape of face albiet a fuzzy view still lingers but not as bad as in the beggining. On a rare occasion noticed a figure fleeing when i woke myself up to end my session don't know what that was but maybe someone here can shed light to that. Sometimes find it hard to "jump" back in feel myself trying to move fingers or neck only with great struggle and eventually get moving again. Lately when sleep comes it takes me to locations that ive never seen before here on earth i would suppose its earth but get the impression that something important is there. One location was a beautifull blue hallway with many doors and strange signs above them in the colors brown, pink, yellow, white. A bluish light fills the hallway and the walls, doors everything is a blue color except the signs. Last location was what seemed to be a museum type room with lots of what appeared to be machines with a dull metal color to them. Got the impression that these were machines made for war but the design was out of this world, think maybe something like the The movie Terminator but they looked very old and the one that sticks out is a machine that looks like a small submarine maybe 12 feet long but rounded at the top with many holes in it like some type of huge salt shaker. Anyone that has any experience in this please add to this and let me know what you think.

Ive had similar lucid dreams. Before going to be I tell myself "I'm going to sleep, yet stay conscious " 9 times out of 10 it doesn't work.. but when it does, my experiences are amazing. Its funny you mentioned location because it just dawned on me that I'm always in non-earthly locations, or better yet very abstract types. I've been to a very advanced city and a shimmering oasis.

Before going to sleep, TELL yourself you will be conscious and aware. get ready for the ride/s of your (dream) life.

I might try these suggestions, I didn't know about this point mid-back, I wonder if we could get more specific info?

I also have virtually mastered a technique for lucid dreaming. I call it the old fart's enlarged prostate method.

Seriously. When a lot of us guys get older, the prostate can give you trouble. What happens most often, is that you need to get up once or twice in the night to go to the bathroom.

What this leads to is your subconscious getting your attention in the dream-state, to wake you up, before you have an accident in your bed. The interesting thing is that the small bit of pressure from your bladder is enough physical discomfort to raise you to complete lucidity, without necessarily waking you up completely.

Generally, someone with this "issue" might find themselves dreaming about trying to find a bathroom. Because it's happened enough times, you get to a point where you recognize that you are dreaming. Actually, it doesn't seem to take "long" for me to realize I'm dreaming when this happens, the trick is to simply recognize it, and then use old-fashioned will-power to ignore the small discomfort.

It's at that point that you can really take off in the dream, with complete control. Whether true out-of-body experiences happen, hard to say, but this gets me to the launching pad, so-to-speak.

No, it doesn't last all that long, but in a dream-state, it can seem like plenty, since time has such little meaning when you are in that zone.

The bonus is that when I finally get up, and take care of business, I can usually fall back asleep fast enough, and enjoy good recall on even my regular dreams in the morning.

So, all this leads me to think that the key is having some "physical" pressure, perhaps very much like what the OP is saying via pressure points on the neck or back. Maybe it doesn't matter so much where this outside pressure comes from, but it serves to "connect" you just enough to the waking-state, to achieve lucidity.

Anyway, works for me.

Dude, that is one looooong sentence. Try using paragraphs. Much easier reading.
I'm sure you are being taught this in school.
You teachers would be disappointed.

great idea on helping achieving a lucid state, i search in sleep and in the awake world, i think we live 2 different realitys and gaining more control over both of them with knowledge is the way to understand who or what we are.

My last experience was as if I was looking through a never-ending portal, and in each scene was a moment from the past, as if I was travelling backwards in time. In terms of the technique, I often remember that I have had the most vivid dreams and recollections of astral travel when I was laying on my back, and when my neck was tilted slightly upward by a high pillow. In terms of meditiative techniques, I remember one from the "Book of Secrets" that was translated by the mystic "Osho" - he mentions a technique for remembering dreams that involved focusing your energy on the third eye, or energy channel to the mind/imagination, and imagine breathing in energy from that location, until it filters down into the heart. It is supposed to store enough light within your imagination to allow you to materialse consciousness into the dreamspace.
