Here's my thoughts on the issue:
Firstly I believe (based on repeated experience) that SP can be quite alarming and overwhelming, but on the flip side it can be quite close to
OOBE's, lucid dreaming and such.
My advice: Study lucid dreaming as opposed to SP, SP can be alarmingly disjointed, suffocating and very unnatural feeling and not even in a rebellious
masochistic experience type of way either, it just feels like you're living a nightmare for a few moments and then have disturbed sleep.
If you must know how to go about it, I suggest a lack of sleep, caffeine, stress and mild intoxicants such as alcohol and such, plenty of rich food
before sleeping and possibly whilst suffering from a cold.
But, if you wish to experience something much more wonderful and insightful, ignore the above advice, get plenty of good sleep and try and focus on
the point you slip between consciousness and unconsciousness, meditate on this - and an even better tip, if you wish to have some deep and powerful
dreams, I suggest waking up in the morning, pottering about for ten minutes, have a sip of water or something and then go back to sleep.
The break in the sleep cycle is temporary but enough to carry you over to a dream-like state once you go back to sleep and thus increases your chances
of having a conscious lucid dream based on the fact that your brain was alert for a few moments but now seeks the solace of sleep.
Trust me it works.
Forget SP, try lucid dreaming. I've had some wonderful dreams.
