How do you make a certain person appear?
PostPosted: Thu 28 Oct, 2010  Reply with quote

Hey

Long time no visit. However, I've been having a few LD's last days, although I never succeed in making a person appear.

Most of the time in the dream I close my eyes, imagine the person I'm thinking about to be standing in front of me, and then open my eyes, but there's always no one there. Does anyone have any tips?

Aside from the standard issue "really believe and expect it to happen" advice, maybe you could try a few tricks or workarounds.

You could ask for a certain person to be behind a door you're about to open, or you could grab a picture of the person you want to see out of your pocket and then jump into it.

I second the door thing, that's how I usually do it. I think it has something to do with letting your brain believe it a little more because it seems more physically possible - you're not making them appear, they're already there and you're just finding them.

That said, it doesn't always work perfectly for me. The best success I've had involves a combination of the door thing and yelling their name really loud as I can, like I'm calling them. Sometimes I try to be really explicit about it, like, "Hey, (insert name here), I'm gonna open this door and you're going to be on the other side, okay?"

This is a slightly different approach, but its been working for me over the last few days. Before you sleep, imagine seeing them in your dream, and repeat a mantra to yourself, eg "I will see *** *** tonight"
Then in thoery before you even get lucid the person should be in your dreams. This is very affective for me in controlling anything i want in my dreams, i suggest you give it a go smile

:D Oh, This was one of my favorite things to do back in the day when I was always crazy in love with a different guy every month.

Well this is what always worked for me. At night, as long as the moon was out, I would look up at the moon and silently and slowly I would say, 3 times:

"I See the Moon and the Moon Sees Me,
and the Moon Sees Somebody I want to See!"

(As I say this, I concentrate on the person.)

Then I would go to bed, and in my lucid dream, let's say I'm outside, I would just say, "I'm going to find you (name) in there!" and I would go around the corner, or in a door or whatever and there they would be!

Well, when something doesn't work IWL, you just look for another method. Try and think up something that would work for you (something you believe that would) and use it in your next dream! Examples include calling him on the phone, pretending he's coming over at your house for some reason, having him walk in from behind, etc. wink

just a few more:
- call them on the phone and ask them to come to you really quick!
- call out their name until they answer and then follow the voice
- ask a DC when X is going to get there
- ask a DC where X is

when i get good at LD control, im gonna materialise a big wooden wardrobe, and whoever i want to appear will step out of that lol
or maybe have them drop in more literally -

"hey wheres matt damon?"
(sound of far away scream that gets closer really fast as poor old Mr Damon drops outta the sky and faceplants on the tarmac in front of me)
"well i wanted jam on my toast but thats just.... ikky...." neutral

LOL



Current LD goal(s): to have one??

this reminded me of a "Self Hypnosis to Awaken You Psychic Abilities" tape that I used to listen to..
After getting into a deep hypnosis, I would visualize being in a room that has a stage with a curtain and a filing cabinet and something else I forgot.
Well I was to 'know' that who ever I wanted, dead, alive, known, or unknown will materialize behind the curtain right when I want it to happen. Then I can push the curtain aside and speak with them, interact with them....
The filing cabinet: What ever I wanted to know, there would be the file in there, I can pull it out and read it. (Akashic records)

So you have to make yourself that room, get familiar with your room, because you master it...
I think the room is to symbolize your subconscious at your command.

My technique is to pop up into the air and levitate tryfly, then say out loud "please take me to Blah". I get gently pulled along as if there's some sort of current (like in a river), taking me to that person. It's a nice ride! After a minute or so, the force will deposit me near the person or outside the building they're hiding in.
hide

In any case, this works pretty well for me.

How can you close and open your eyes in a dream, that woke me twice =\ As for what I do for making a character appear is pretending there is a place they are always at and go there or that they are waiting for me by the store or something nearby, depending on the suroundings. (I only did it once.)
