Chakra Technique (very effective!)
PostPosted: Thu 10 Feb, 2011  Reply with quote

Hey guys

Last night was a great night for me. Had around 7 LD s all by using the chakra technique. So how does it work?

From Wikibooks: Using Chakra ("third eye") meditation is a one way to achieve WILDs. Basically, one has to focus solely on his third eye and breathing to achieve a lucid dream. This is a technique over 5000 years old, taught to Parvati by Shiva.

Although, last night I never intended to WILD.. I thought I was too lazy so I just decided to repeat a mantra over and over again every time I woke up while falling asleep. the mantra was "I will know I'm dreaming". Now a strange thing happened.. Once I was close to falling asleep, I immediately started to focus on my third eye (look upwards at your third eye with your eyes closed) and when I did this, everything would spin really fast like a WILD and I would enter a dream immediately. I achieved 7 LD s this way .. simply every time I woke up I just did the whole thing again. by 8 am I wasn't able because I just wasn't tired enough to keep doing MILD. But basically I've been waking.. and LD ing since 1 am.

Anyways, hope someone here gives it a try! smile

Interesting!

I had a someway similar experience: I didn't think about third eye, but I had several LD in the same night, each one started with a feeling of vibrations and shakes.

Just a question: what do you mean with "look upwards at your third eye with your eyes closed"? Do I have just to look upwards? Or should I also think about this "third eye", visualize it?

Close your eyes. Using your index finger, touch the spot just above the area between your physical eyes. This is the location of your third eye. Now while keeping your eyes closed, try to look upward and to that area above your physical eyes.. and focus on that area.. that's your third eye chakra. You can visualize that chakra but personally I did not do any visualization. I just had my eyes looking up into that spot and repeated the mantra. You might feel dizzy for a while and it might seem a bit hard to stay that way because your eyes will be twitching.. you just need to hold it for a moment and after a while the twitching will stop and you'll be able to stay that way.

Hmm...It seems to me like the looking up at this so called "third eye" is a way of keeping conscious awareness and basically doing WILD. I guess?

mm not exactly. But if it works for you in that way than cool. There is a way though of inducing WILD while focusing on your third eye.. but it's not because you're keeping conscious awareness.. it's because you will induce HI pretty easily without having to undergo the previous relaxation stages in WILD technique.

Could you please give me your definition of what you think the third eye is. I'm curious. How does this induce HI pretty easily?

I tried this last night. It felt like my head was on fire, and I didn't get to sleep for about an hour. But I will try tonight; maybe it won't be so bad.

The third eye chakra, located in the center of the forehead, is a chakra centered mainly around creativity, imagination, and (if I'm not mistaken,) mental connection. Interestingly enough, the pineal gland of the brain, special due to being the only gland in the brain that is singular, and between the halves. Partly due to its nature being intertwined with creative and original minds, it is also said to be linked to dreaming very strongly, and since HH is dreams forming, this may be why people feel it has a connection to the odd sensation.

Of course, this is only relevant should you believe in chakras. Otherwise, you're just staring at the top of the bridge of your nose.



Current LD goal(s): Visit that ball of plasma in the sky. Yup, the Sun.

Sure. The third eye isn't simply a place in your forehead someone decided to invent like some people might think. In our physical body it's the Pineal Gland. It's basically a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It is also known that this gland produces melatonin, which is a hormone that affects the wake/sleep pattern. So as you can see. The third eye doesn't really only have a methaphysical connotation, but also a scientific one.

Now, in metaphysics. The pineal gland's location deep in the brain has a lot of importance. It is associated with the sixth chakra, which links to increased psychic awareness as consciousness ascends. This gland (third eye) controls the various bio-rhythms of the body, and when it awakens it is generally associated with a very deep pressure on the head. Specifically on the base of the brain.

Now.. about the HI. With a proper focus on the third eye, (generally achieved through meditation). We experience clear hypnagogic images pretty much identical to the ones we receive when we are performing WILD. Therefore, it is through the same process of HI that we enter an LD, just like in WILD.

How does focusing on this third eye/pineal gland, or maybe focusing on it during meditation give you rewards? What practices might you do to 'activate' your pineal gland more? ^^

Thank you for the post LucidHvn...The Chakra Technique worked for me today when I attempted WILD thumbs ...

Although I must add that I'm pretty good at WILD and usually make a successful attempt whenever I find time for an afternoon nap...Nonetheless, using the chakra method seemed a bit more easier to me..So, thanks again...

Its funny that just 2 weeks before I tried this same meditation but got extremely annoyed because of the buzz and headache...That time I couldn't make out that it could be easily used for WILD Having faced such anomalous behavior for meditation I switched back to my previous technique...



Current LD goal(s): Deep conversation with a dream figure...
