|[mod edit]Moved from the Quest forum to the Beyond Dreaming forum. This forum is dedicated to dream yogas, etc.[/mod edit]
This technique is described at http://www.totse.com/en/fringe/dreams_auras_astral_projection/yogadrm.html
"Thinking that thou art thyself the deity Vajra-Yogini,
visualize in the throat psychic-center the syllable AH, red of
colour and vividly radiant, as being the real embodiment of Divine
Speech. (Midway between the heart psychic-center and that of the
throat, in a space about four inches long, a tube-like psychic-
organ is said to exist. If the vital force be quiescent within it,
sleep ensues; and if the vital-force be in motion within it, dreams
occur. Hence the visualization chiefly concerns the throat
(10) By mentally concentrating on the radiance of the AH, and
recognizing every phenomenal thing to be in essence like forms
reflected in a mirror, which, though apparent, have no real
existence of themselves, one comprehendeth the dream."
I have questions about this technique, ever since reading TWOLD. I dont understand exactly how im supposed to visualize he syllable AH. Do i literally visualize the letters in red on my chest? also how do you visualize the syllable on your throat? If anyone could clarify this id appreciate it.

|The Ah syllabe is like this in Tibetan.
But as tibetan people understand it's a bit difficult to visualize for occidental people, they say you can visualize a "normal" A instead.
I suppose you have to imagine it as it was on your throat or in your throat, but it's just a supposition.
|Do i literally visualize the letters in red on my chest?
Why on your chest? In the excerpt you gave, it's said: "visualize in the throat psychic-center the syllable AH".
