I need to make some distinctions that will be helpful for me as I describe my experiences and I don't know that anyone else here on DV uses them, but I will.
I often speak of waking life as being a dream, and its just a more concrete dream, and I don't want to confuse my mind, so I will speak of the physical plane and the astral plane. And they are BOTH dream worlds. Thus my astral body AB, or physical body PB.
The time of an afternoon nap seems to be the best for me to experience the AP. Hopefully when I get better at it, the mind will transfer and become lucid in the AP at night.
I used a yoga nidra guided meditation this afternoon, fell asleep for most of it, but then stayed laying down after it was over and I was aware that it was over. The next thing I remember is that my DH and I are sitting face to face and he has on large reflective blue glasses. But they are not entirely opaque because I can still see his eyes. He is reading a guided meditation to me. At one point I open my AB eyes and notice that there is a reflection in his glasses of the baby moving at our feet. IRL we do not have a baby, and babies or toddlers are a dream sign for me.
I comment to my DH that the baby is awake and rolling around now because I can see the baby in his glasses.
I reach up with my AB arm and try to open my eyes a bit more because they feel very heavy. For some reason as I am telling this dream, it doesn't sound like much, but I remember during the dream that I knew I was working on the AP. Its just not that clear to me now.
I woke up, or maybe the scene just changed - I don't remember. I was laying down in a different direction than my bed is IRL. But it was still on the floor. I was stroking my chin very gently and I guess it must have been my AB. I thought, "I should move very carefully and gently so I don't wake myself up. The chin stroking seems to be really effective at making the full body vibrations that I need to have to AT (Astral travel)."
I heard people walking around or making little noises and again I thought, "I hope it doesn't wake up my body. I want to stay asleep here for a bit." Then I thought to myself, "I will practice and try to get my AB out of bed. And the first thing I will do is go out the window and fly around." In this AP, the window was on my right. I was unable to move more than just my AB arm and fingers stroking my chin. I couldn't get my eyes open, roll over or anything else.
Unfortunately IRL I had an alarm set and it went off, so I didn't have more time to practice moving my AB.
When I was able to assess my surroundings, I was only stroking my chin with my AB, and I was entirely alone with no other people around making any noise.
I don't even know if I can call these little occasions of progress a LD, since I still am only able to just lay there in the AP and not do anything yet but move an arm. Maybe for me it will truly be like a baby IRL who has to learn how to control each body part before even being able to roll over, crawl or stand up.
