I don't have any scientific goodies to share...just my own .02, whatever it's worth.
My 'dreaming' life is one that is continually evolving with my own personal intention as well as that of Spirit, and I've had OBE's, also. I
pretty much only have what they call 'lucid dreams' but in a few of those I have actually had literal impact upon events. So just saying, I've had
some experience with this kind of thing.
If I am able to lie still upon waking....that is, not waking up with the desperate need to go to the john, I can hover in that borderland place
between 'here' and 'there'...this results in one of two things happening. I either am able to contemplate what's been going on over 'there' and
make it more cemented in my memory as well as relate it to mundane personal current events...or else I somehow 'receive' significant information in
symbolic picture-images, that I do not believe I would otherwise be able to apprehend in the conventional manner.
I have never kept a dream journal although once in a while I wish I had that kind of dedication if only for the sake of having dates recorded for
later inspection and comparison. But for the most part, I have had no problem remembering events and situations from my 'dreaming' if I was able to
capture them, so to speak, in the way I described. But you have to lie still and even in the very same position in which you awaken...I don't even
open my eyes...as long as I keep my eyes closed, I can stay in that in-between place indefinitely and have actually loitered in that region for up to
an hour many times.
I think that this region or borderland is like a link between the two states of consciousness and therefore seems to me to be necessary to unite these
two awareness/being-ness-es/minds into one mind/awareness from which information and intelligence from either side can be accessed and applied on
either side, at will. I say this because also I have gotten to a consistent state of awareness while 'dreaming' in which I am fully cognizant and
clear about the details of my ordinary waking world and even bring up such details in dream conversations...that is, it is like I am not a awake
person sometimes and a sleeping/dreaming person at other times but just one person who is sometimes here and sometimes there but neither one being
more or less real than the other, as far as my conscious awareness.
That is not to say that I live in dream-land...and in fact, it seems like this has brought greater clarity and level-headed-ness to my ordinary waking
