The BIG meditation as a LD Aid topic
PostPosted: Thu 03 Nov, 2005  Reply with quote

I could not get anyone else to respond to my desires to have a BIG meditation topic made - as it is a practice that would boost the effectiveness of techniques such as WILD, and pretty much any other technique used to become lucid - so I thought I'd make one of my own, whether it becomes a legit 'BIG topic' sticky, or not.

Anyway, this is the thread where you can learn ALL about meditation, post your experiences in times of utter relaxation and concentration or your experiences in APs or LDs that were induced somehow by your meditation, receive help or advice from fellow meditators, ask any questions about meditating, share you most rewarding and most effective meditation techniques and discoveries with others, and share your very own unique methods of meditation with the rest of us!


(NOTE: I post this in 'The Quest for Lucidity' board because I believe - err, know - that meditation can be very helpful in preparing the mind for many of the LD inducing techniques, and may even induce lucid dreams in itself. It also can help with DR. Aside from that, meditation can benefit any one person by further clarifying their mind and relaxing them during the day. Thanks for listening)

i agree - meditation is a great way to still the mind, and thus extend both the length and clarity of one's travels in lucid dreams.

if you've ever got so excited about simply being in a lucid dream, that you simply wake up, you're bound to recognise the value meditation might have for you.

I have a meditation tape that I used to do as part of the WBTB method during the summer. It was conveniently 45 minutes long, so I would sleep 4 or 5 hours, do the tape and then go back to bed for some pretty darn good results. However, quite a few nightmares were also the result. I usually don't have nightmares when I don't meditate. I guess those are just parts of my dweller in the threshold (or dark side) coming out.

That's all I have to contribute.

hehe, i have a way, i've read it somewhere(i think it's good to combine with crystals)
here's what i did while meditating with my crystal(amethyst?):
1: i lie down on my back with the crystal(did i mention it should be flat(-ish)?) with the flat(-ish) side on your forehead(3rd eye) and imagine a trashcan
2: throw in all your thoughts and worries
3: close the lid and kick it away(if you want to) or just make it dissapear
4: now move your attention to the crystal
5: after a few seconds/minutes you might start to feel something strange on your forehead, just keep paying attention to it
well, that's just about it, the first time i did it it kept me busy for half an hour tho it seemed like 1-2 minutes

That sounds cool, does it have to be an amethist?

Well, there are lots of meditations. What type did you really have in mind, if any?


Also, I was wondering, where would you get one of these crystals, and how expensive are they? Oh, and how big would they have to be?

somebody said crystals? :D

I buy mine mostly on ebay ^^

we also have a crystal topic here

for meditating clear quartz and amethyst are good, but you can meditate with any crystal/stone; it depends on what you want to do. Crystals each have their own unique energies that work on different levels. In the crystal topic are some links to sites with more explanation about the different kinds of crystals.

I don't like to think of Zazen as meditation for reasons I'd not like to get into (again) but yes, I tried is a few times. It's not the stuff for me, though. I have a link to a site all about Zazen, though.

Link, well, adress tis HERE! Well, down there VVVVVV.

Hope that helps, if you haven't already read everything the internet has to offer about it, Steve.

I haven't read a lot of returns about meditation induced lucid dreams. On a buddhist sangha forum, there was only one people who have had a lucid dream. He asked what it was to the others, who couldn't answer.

I've read that site already (I think it was Fadem who posted it) but thanks CZChilla. I think this method takes a lot of practice, but it sounds good so i'll keep trying it (unless someone knows of a better method).
