Relaxation Tech
PostPosted: Fri 17 Aug, 2007  Reply with quote

Okay, some days ago I asked my subconsciousness to help me with my lucid dreaming. What I got was an awesome way to relax =D

Here's the deal:
Imagine you're swimming in the middle of an ocean, and all you can see is a small sand island about 50 meters away from you (Must be big enough for you to lay there). Feel the way it's harder to move around in the water, and your body moving. Swim to the island and just relax in the sand.

Then bury yourself down in the sand. Feel the sand on your skin. And make sure you use time. Just feel that the sand is over you, and that you're buried. You'll soon be ready to enter the hypnagogic phase smile

You'll probably get a HUGE urge to move! This is your body checking whether you're awake or not. If you don't react, your body will most likely fall asleep, but your mind will stay awake.

Here you can experiment with WILD, VILD or whatever you feel like.

Just felt like this was something worth sharing, because I know how hard just relaxing properly is for some wink

It worked really well... until I reached the shore and lost focus sadblauw . I felt really heavy and relaxed and if it hadn't been for my loss of focus, it probably would've worked. Great technique! rechterduim omhoog met knipoog

Definitely trying again tonight! wink

Hmm ... You could try focusing your whole concentration to a single point, like that buzzing sound in your ears. Then just watch what happens turn3

Read this. If this can't get you to sleep, nothing can =P Just make sure you don't just fall asleep right away, and wake up the next morning like "what happened?".

Maybe you should do some cardio throughout the day, to ensure that you'll be pretty tired turn3
