      Post The Creation of a New Lucid Technique: Closed Eye Hallucination while awake.

      *This 1st post is an intro and informational post. My other posts, after this one, will be the actual experiment itself. You do not have read this to check out my progress*

      To start it off, I will first say this:This is a closed experiment. I am not asking for participants. I am simply recording my experience, results and conclusion here as to show the progress of what can possibly be the next big thing.
      That being said, If you would like to do the experiment yourself, feel free. Just please don't post your results/experience on this thread. Also, please refrain from posting comments like "I will try this".

      Good day. Basically, I am experimenting with using closed eye hallucination (also known as Closed eye visuals or CEV for short) To induce a lucid dream. CEV or closed eye hallucination is being able to hallucinate with your eyes closed. Not with your mind's eye, but an actual hallucination. I originally got my motivation from Mylynes. His thread is the following: Advanced Vision Control Tutorial
      It basically talks about how he developed himself to the point of seeing Controlled hallucinations with his eyes open. That being said, he stated out that he first began with seeing closed eye hallucination. While it is not required, it's probably be best to read his thread. along with being informative, it is also extremely entertaining, interesting and awe-aspiring.



      Information on what exactly is closed eye hallucination can be better sought here:Closed-Eye hallucination
      I will briefly talk about the different levels.

      Level 1 CEV: This is the most common visual. Everyone is able to achieve with just a few minutes (if not a few seconds) of concentration. What you see, or began to realize, is that you aren't seeing just black when you close your eyes (even if you are in an environment which is so dark, no light would be able to pass through your eyelids). You begin to see... something. Mylynes states that you begin to see tiny dots.

      Level 2 CEV: this is also pretty common. You start to see slight color in this level. not distinct but vague changes in darkness and lightness.

      Level 3 CEV: This level is fairly uncommon for the average monkey, but pretty common for lucid dreamers. specifically, those who work with WILDs. This is basically the tunnel vision. Here there are lots of movement. You can see movement in level 2, however, it is ever so slight. Here, it is more pronounced. along with tunnel vision, you can also experience patterns.

      Level 4:Here you can start to see objects and shapes. This is, pretty much where I want to get to. on the wiki, it states that you need to be in a deep trance to achieve this, but Mylynes has achieved this with simple concentration, fully conscious. I will do the same for this experiment. After, I get to level for CEV (To the point where I can hallucinate, with my eyes closed, objects and shapes), I will practice using this as a transitioning into a lucid dream. So it's a form of WILD

      But here's the difference (and Im will Bold the following, to emphasize):
      This will be done while conscious. I will be become proficient at hallucinating with my eyes closed while fully conscious. When I succeed, I will make this technique so that you can achieve lucidity at any point of the day. Whether you want to lucid dream right when you go to sleep, or while your taking a nap. And this will be done by being able to hallucinate (With your eyes closed) to the point of actually seeing what you imagine. Of course, as of now, I am only working with visuals. once I become proficient at visual hallucination, the rest of the senses should come easily(and if not, I will make a technique on the other senses as well)

      With That I feel the need to give a sort of disclaimer, if you will. I will underline this to give another form of emphasis:

      This technique will open a doorway to your mind. This experiment induces a full blown hallucination (even though it's with your eyes closed). From here, the possibilities are endless. Mylynes, the fellow who inspired me, can now hallucinate with his eyes open. He can now alter all his senses. He can see, eat, taste, feel, and hear whatever he wants and it will manifest to his reality (of course, it can only be experienced by him). He can override any senses, like pain, for example. He even played with the idea of having a HUD, which is like how in video games, there are icons that show things like health, stamina, and things like that.
      This can also have a negative effect, if you believe it will. If you become scared quite easily, or if you are really wary all the time, you might hallucinate things that you did not ask for. I will leave exactly what you will hallucinate to your imagination, however, it can be as bad as you might think. But I am telling you this right now: that everything depends how much confidence you have in yourself, and how much you are willing to step out of your comfort zone. During this experiment, I'm going to expect to see some freaky stuff, but I know I'm always going to be in control. The only way to lose control is by fearing what you see.
      So again, think about how far you want to open your mind up. While I am currently working with only full blown closed eye hallucinations, this can be a gateway to so much more. This, depending on who you are, can develop into a good or bad thing.


      The experiment

      I will post my progress and every attempt on here. Since I'm currently on summer vacation, I will have a lot of free time. and therefore, you'll see a lot of progress and attempts. It took Mylynes about 15 years to get to the point where he is now, but he states that it can take only a few months to get really good at this. The reason why it took him years is because he would never actively practice with it. it kind of developed on it's own for him. I plan on becoming advance extremely fast. Surely, in less then a month.

      Well that's about all. here are some links to interesting topics related to this:

      (Advanced Vision Control Tutorial) This guy (Mylynes) was my original inspiration. He gives a decent tutorial on how to achieve this, but I plan on refining and advancing this technique once I become good at it. There are lot of interesting conversations in that thread (however it is really long, if you want to read every post), so if you have the time, check it out.

      (Amadeus' Exodus: A Tale of Tulpa) This is related more on the Topic of Tulpa's, but the ability that I'm talking about is similar to what he achieved. He is proof that this experiment can be achieved in less than 15 years. it took this guy only 1 year (and this is with hallucinations with his eyes open).

      (ACTUALLY USEFUL TIER: http://www.navaching.com/hawkeen/micro.html http://www.d - Pastebin.com) I haven't actually read this one yet, but it seems to look like it has useful information.


      Well thats all, folks. One of the reason why I'm doing this is because I see so little people working on this for real. there are people (example, those on Mylynes thread) who say they will try it, but you never hear from them again. Thats why I am making a thread on this and recording my progress. hopefully you'll hear back from me constantly, until the point where I actually achieve this. By then, I will be working on a technique to get you guys started on achieving this too! (if willing).

      Equipments: I am working with an equipment right now to help with seeing CEV (closed eye hallucination/ closed eye visuals). It is a contoured sleeping mask. That is basically a mask that allows you to freely open or close your eyes, and still retain a dark visual, blocking light from the outside environment. I got mine from Target, but any contoured mask should be fine. I found one on amazon for those who cant find one in stores near you: Macks Dreamweaver Contoured Sleep Mask (Pack of 2): Health & Personal Care.

      It's not necessary to use a contoured eye mask. I find it better because I have the option to either close my eyes and open it, and would still have no light from the outside enter my eyes. Also, I find it better to see images with my eyes open (using the contoured mask). I get sleepy and lose focus with my eyes closed. Just a bad habit I guess. Once I become proficient with my eyes opened (technically still considered closed eye because of the sleeping mask blocking all light) I will work with eyes closed. also, make sure, if you do get the mask, you find a way to block all light from entering inside the mask, without putting any pressure on your eyes. Light would sometimes enter through the bottom part of the mask, because of how my nose is structured, so I but a dark headband right under the mask to block the light out. be creative and modify the mask to block any light out.

      Progress: Right, I am able to get all the to Level 3, hallucinations. That is basically movement and color. That being said, the only color I see is dark sea blue and some other slight variation like purple (all extremely dark). Movement can be intense. I get tunnel vision, where it seems like I'm going in a tunnel. an idea of what I mean can be found here: Tunnel like visuals. This is all done while fully conscious. I am also able to control the visuals (to very little extent).

      experiment Right now I'm planning on shortening the time it takes me to get from level 1 visuals to level 3. as of now, it takes about 20-30 minutes. By tomorrow, I will get it to take no more than 2 minutes. One way is by just getting to level 3 (how always do) and as soon as I get there, take off my blindfold. I'll do that over and over until I become fast enough where I don't have to wait to long to get to level 3 hallucinations

      Progress: As I thought, I was able to decrease the time in which I reached the tunnel vision hallucination (in other words, the level 3 CEV). As soon as I was clearly able to identify the hallucination, I stopped the timer and wrote down how long it took me. I also factored in the time it took me to put on my blindfold, and take it off. Lastly, I waited about 15-20 minutes between the times I've made the attempt. That is to make sure that I was on a fairly clean slate the next time around. I've recorded my attempts:

      Time for transitioning from level 1 to level 3

      Attempt 1

      Time before achieving level 3 CEV (TIME): 13 minutes 8 seconds


      Attempt 2

      TIME: 7 minutes 3 seconds

      difference from prior time (difference): -6 minutes 5 seconds


      Attempt 3

      Time: 6 minutes 50 seconds

      difference: -13 seconds

      Final thoughts: I noticed, from the first attempt, that I was able to decrease the time from the getco. while I did not keep track for all the attempts prior to this, the time it took to reach level 3 hallucination felt as if it took about 20-30 minutes before. This could mean that just having the intention to reach a certain point can greatly decrease the time it takes transitioning.
      As shown above, the time it took me to get to level 3 decreased by almost half. For the first attempt, I didn't really attempt to do anything. I just observed and let my eyes do whatever (like I usually do), until I got to level 3. for the second attempt, I tried to actively create level 3 hallucination, after getting to level 2 hallucination. by the 3rd attempt, I realize that I was able to achieve level 2 hallucination almost immediately it took no more than 2 minutes. I also initiated the level 3 hallucination myself, from level 2. I was able to start movement and transition into level 3 by thinking about it.

      Right now it takes about 7 minutes to transition into level 3, and I am now able to see some form of color almost immediately after I put on the blindfold. I will make more attempts tomorrow.

      The goal is to reach level 3 in under 3 minutes. once I do this, I will then move on to the next goal of being able to control the images, or patterns that I see.

      Time for transitioning from level 1 to level 3

      Attempt 4

      TIME: 14 minutes 13 seconds

      difference (from previous attempt): +8 minute 37 seconds


      Attempt 5

      TIME: 5 minutes 46 seconds

      difference: -8 minutes 27 seconds


      Attempt 6

      TIME: 3 minutes 15 seconds

      difference: -2 minutes 30 seconds


      Final thoughts: It looks like, based on the information so far, the time it takes me to see level 3 hallucination (hypnagogic hallucination) is always over 10 minutes the very first time I make an attempt on a new day. It sort of seems like my mind is warming up, and thus, the reason why the time is prolonged the first time around (on a new day). I'm going to attempt to eliminate the apparent "warm-up" phase.

      The 5th and 6th attempt took less time then all of the attempts yesterday. I now got the time to roughly 3 minutes 15 seconds by the 6th attempt. I feel that is possible to get even lower, so I will see if I can decrease the time even more.

      ///my vision\\\

      I can seriously see myself getting really good at this. Once I'm able to see and control objects, shapes, and the environment with my eyes closed, I have several goals in hand. One of them, which is obvious, is to induce a lucid dreaming. I can see this future technique becoming both popular, and infamous. Popular because, if you are able to get the hang of it (which would just take practice), this technique would have a 100% success rate (or near 100). Another reason why I can see it getting popular is because you would have an opportunity to practice this technique in the day and night time (a time where you aren't sleepy). This gives the practitioner to practice all day, if he/she pleases, without unnecessarily losing hours of sleep.

      I believe it will also become infamous, because you are inducing REAL LIFE HALLUCINATION. If just anyone tries this without being prepared, they can possibly give themselves a fright.They can even start developing the technique even when they don't want to, giving themselves open eye hallucination (which will probably be more freaky than closed eye). I will test, and experiment with myself with those kinks, making it so that the possible negative affect is decreased, but as I said in the intro, you are opening a door to your mind. Do this with confidence, and you'll have nothing to worry about. Do this with fear, and you'll have everything to worry about. Lastly, if you want to do this, but are worried that you might not be able to control the hallucination, this technique will not be for you. It's only for those who are sure they can control themselves and what they see.

      Progress

      I noticed something very very interesting. I am now able to see level 2 hallucinations almost instantly. It'll take no more than 30 seconds to begin seeing clear contrast of black and white in my field of vision. I am also able to manipulate it very very very slightly. not enough so its consistent.

      I don't see any other clear, distinct colors besides black and white, but once I decrease the time it takes to get to level 3 CEV, I will start working with changing colors. either that or with movement. What I see when I'm in level 2 is kind of like blobs that are fleeting.

      Neat Trick

      There is a trick I do that is extremely interesting, and helps me into slipping into level 3 quite easily: that is moving my hand over my eyes. let me remind you that I'm wearing a really good contoured eye mask. This mask blocks out all light from outside, leaving the inside completely black. So one time, when I got a bit bored of waiting for level 3 (this was before I started documenting my trials), I just decided waving my hand over my eyes. this caused the very slight visuals I was seeing to become more erratic than before. it moved as it would if you were outside with the sun out & blazing, with your eyes closed, and someone waves their hands over your eyes. In that scenario, you can tell they did it, because some of the sun's light is able to penetrate through your eyelids and to your eyes, so when they put there hands over your eye, they were blocking the sunlight from reaching your eyelids, and therefore your eyes.
      When using an eye mask, I'm sure that no outside light is entering my eyes. So when I waved my hands over my eyes, I was surprised to see movement as I would if I were outside with my eyes closed while the sun's out. It did that because I expected it to. So I tried to cause the same movement without my hand, but it was difficult. at first, I got no results (and I started wondering if there were any light entering my eyes). But then I was able to do it. While the affect wasn't as strong as physically putting my hand over my eyes, it was still distinguishable, nonetheless.

      To conclude, I'm planning on probably using this trick as a way for beginners to get good (when I make a guide about it in the future)

      Time for transitioning from level 1 to level 3


      Attempt 7

      TIME: 6 minute 30 seconds
      difference: +3 minute 25 seconds


      Final thoughts: I now know for a fact that it is possible to decrease the time it takes me to transition from level 1 to level 3. With that, I will stop recording my speed, at least for now. I've decreased the time so I wont get bored waiting for level 3 to occur. For each attempt, I immediately stopped the experiment once I transitioned to level 3 CEV. I wasn't able to play with that level since I started the attempt. So now I'm going to work with color and movement. I will try to change the patterns and color I see during level 3 CEV. From there, it is very possible that I might slip into level 4 CEV (which is seeing actual objects, shapes, and even faces). If that were to occur, I will terminate that current attempt and post the results here. That being said, I am only working with color and movement. I see myself becoming proficient in at least one of them by tonight, or early morning tomorrow.

      * As a side note, I made sure to label the actual progression of the experiment with the date and time on the top left corner. Any other post that I post are just thoughts and comments that I have. If you just want to keep track with the experiment itself, only read the posts with the date on the top left.*

      The Summer Time

      I have soooo much time. I realized this, while doing this experiment. Because of that, I am advancing on this experiment quite smoothly (and also posting a lot). By the speed I'm going, I wouldn't e surprised if I am able to become quite advance (or very good) in about a week or 2. If that's happen, I know that I would be able to make a guide/technique that will enable others to achieve closed eye hallucination way faster than me, since it will be more constructive. Right now I'm experimenting.

      I am glad with all the free time I have, but realize that this technique might not be good for those who are busy. I also realized the skill development phase will be the longest and most time consuming part, however after you are able to get past that phase, every thing else should go by fast. You should be able to enter lucid dreaming quite fast after you become good at this technique.

      So to conclude, if you are able to put a good amount of time every day for about a week or 2, you should be able to become really good with lucid dreaming from that point on (without all the time). A good amount would probably be about 2-3 hours a day. This is all theory so far. I might find a way to speed up the process. I might end up becoming really good in less than a week. We'll see how things go.

      Thumbs up

      Monday July 14 2014 (4:46 pm)

      Attempts for color/movement

      Attempt 1

      While I was not able to change the color, I was able to affect the movement to some degree. I began losing conscious and getting sleepy, so i ended the experiment and took off the blindfold.


      Attempt 2
      I got some pretty interesting results here.
      This attempt lasted about an hour. For the I stayed at level 3 CEV for most of the whole attempt. during that time, I had no control of the colors I saw. While I was able to exert some movement, the colors stayed either black, white, or dark dark blue. I decided to put the color control on hold for that session and work with shapes. during that time, the tunnel hallucination came and seized, on and off several times. after while I decided to try and create an outline of a middle finger. during that time, I started to lose consciousness, but when I caught myself and regained focus, I saw the middle finger outline clear on my field of vision. it was covering up most of my field of vision. It started disappearing once I began focusing on it.
      Nothing happened until the end of this attempt. I decided to end the attempt because of what happen:I started to see a shape. In other words, I reached level 4 CEV. What I saw, at first was like a light brown boulder that had lots of rough edges. Relatively speaking, it looked like it was the size of a head. I started imagining a face, and the face appeared on the boulder. the eyes and the smiling mouth was now on the boulder. The boulder was the only shape that was there, and everything else were just level 3 background visuals. I ended the attempt right after seeing this to record it here.

      Final thoughts: While I was not able to control the colors at all, I succeed in moving the patterns and creating a level 4 hallucination! This was a good day. I do not consider the middle finger I saw a level 4 CEV because it was fleeting. it disintegrated right when I paid some attention to it.

      Practicing with this experiment has increased my focus. I began to lose consciousness about 3 or 4 times, and I was able to catch myself before it happened. Usually, I wouldn't be able to know that I lost consciousness until after I woke up and realized that I fell asleep. Not only could I tell that I was beginning to fall asleep, I stopped it mid way, and regained full focus and consciousness.

      Now on to the real success. The level 4 hallucination. It seemed so clear compared to the blurry waves and pattern in level 3. I stopped the hallucination and took off my blindfold after playing with the face for a while, but I could have gone further and experimented even further had I not ended it. Ironically, I found that it was much easier to control the hallucination in level 4 CEV compared to level 3 CEV. I simply thought of adding a face to the boulder, and it started manifesting.

      Because of this, for my next attempt (which I will attempt tomorrow), I will not worry on changing colors until I reach level 4 CEV. I will also get myself to reach level 4 several times tomorrow. As of now, it takes me about an hour to get to level 4, which is too long for me. I will work on decreasing the time, as I did with the level 3 hallucination.

      Attempt 3

      I dozed off. I did not have any real results that differed from attempt 1 yesterday. I will try again, but at a different angle.

      Progress

      I realized something very important. This experiment isn't about finding a trick to reach level 4 hallucination. this technique is simply about practice practice practice until your able to create level 4 CEV just as your able to raise your hand up. Right now, I'm basically practicing to move a muscle I've never had control over before.

      I've had an interesting experience. I decided to put on my blind fold right after I woke up this morning. Of course, I ended up dozing off, but when I woke up, I heard this ringing sound. I was able to focus on the ringing sound, and even control it. What I was doing felt like I was condensing the sound to one point of my brain. I was able to induce a lucid dream that way.

      We should talk some time. We are basically at the same place with this the technique and both are working on the exact same thing.

      Simple technique to WILD easily!

      It will be more effective if we put out heads together to try and figure it out.

      And as a tip. If you want to control touch and feeling, look into how the body vibrates when people try to wild.....yet they never actually move. If you can have this happen to you.....try to control it then reproduce it.

      Wonderful. Believe it or not, I've actually saw your thread too before I thought of making this thread. I was planning on putting your thread here as a link, but forgot where you posted it on. Anyways, I'd love to work with you together. Do you want to talk on the chat sometime? It'll be much faster that way.

      I see. I was planning on working with sight first, but I know exactly what you mean. I would always reach the vibratory state after about an hour of meditation. Thing with me is, after that , I would get nervous and my heart start beating fast, ejecting out of that state.

      update

      I've discovered a technique that helps increase the tome it take to get from level 1 to level 3. I've found this out, with the help of glexiar while he was giving me some advice: technique is to first look at the darkness (which isn't just darkness) as if you were going stargazing. Try pointing out the little dots as if they were constellations. Soon after, begin to try to impose a picture being made by the constellation. After some time (about 1-2 minutes) of that, I started seeing level 3 cev. While I was able to get to that level faster from other attempts, It wasn't as comsistant as this technique. Cudos to glexier!

      Thumbs up

      Thursday July 24 2014 (12:11). 11 days since the start of this experiment

      progress

      I made another breakthrough in the experiment. During level 3 CEV, I was able to create the outline image of a 2d finger pointing either left or right. I was able to create this finger from the waves of pattern during lever 3 CEV. This was not level 4 CEV. I was still not able to maintain the finger for more than 3 or 4 seconds. However, I'd call it the half way point between 3 and 4.

      Final thoughts
      Just as a sidenote, I've been practicing since my last post, however I didn't feel the results, by itself, were profound enough to post about. I will share them all, however, cumulatively:
      -I've notice that my eyes gets irritated when I take my eye mask right off. I now slowly reintroduce my eyes back to light.
      - my eyes have became more sensitive to light, in general. I will sometimes have to squint to look at the sky. This is not permanent, and eyes start to adjust within a day.
      -the main reasons for most of my downfalls for some of the attempts I make were because of my bed. I simply could not focus for that long without getting sleepy. As a remedy, I put up my tent on the floor and experimented in there. I did not become sleepy at all. You do not have to lay in a tent. Just be somewhere where you don't automatically associate with sleeping.
      - motivation is key. I find my self sometimes losing motivation. As a remedy, I play music and imagine the possibilities of what this ability will open for me. I do this as a prep before I actually make an attempt, to pump me up. Sometimes, I would even leave the music on.

      Hey guys. Another resource I will make available is one by glexiar. He is doing something very similar to what I am. He has had
      All his lucid dreams by this similar technique:Simple technique to WILD easily!

      Check it out, and pm him for advice. He's, from last time I messaged him, is able to hallucinate eyes very clearly and face fairly clearly. He is also able to transition into dreams by visualizing a door way that will lead him into his dreams.

      Along with the outlining of a 2d pointing finger, I was also able to make a jet black bird.I could not see features of the bird, such as the eyes, but I could see its wings

      I decided to try out this technique during wbtb, and I was not disappointed. A little, freaked out, yes, but not disappointed. This experience made me reanylyze and form a resolve on what I'm getting myself into: hallucinations!
      So I wake up at around 3:40 and stay up until 4:15. I pit my mask on and attempt to hallucinate. During this time, I hear my cat crying. Soon after I here my door creek open. While this was not a hallucination, it did freak me out a bit. I knew I shut my door.
      Getting back to experiment, I found myself in a lucid dream. I was in my room. I knew it was a dream just by how it felt. I plugged my nose just to make sure. I was not able to leave the room so I decided to wake myself up.

      final thoughts

      While I did not experience any "scary" hallucinations, I would have if I was a bit better with the technique.it makes me stress the importance of fearlessness, or at least courage to move foward.

      I'll keep this one short. Everything's been pretty steady. I'mworking with using what I know into inducing lucid dreams during naps

      Update

      Excuse the hiatus of this forum. The reason was that I decided not to post every time I practice with this technique, but instead only when I feel like some of my advancements are worth posting.

      Anyways, I got some news. I figured out that it's so much easier to first start out this practice of hallucinating while in a altered state of consciousness. In the long run, I will be able to hallucinate without getting to this altered state but for now, that is what works.

      Anyways, here's what happened: so I tulpa force with my tulpa, Menna. I do this in my wonderland. I do this until I am in an altered state, which feels like not being fully conscious. From there, I am able to create glimpses of visuals but can't hold it. I will work with that.
      Kaizen, Rageki and Makke like this.

      I am also practicing AVC and I have reached somewhere between 2-3. I get a lot of movement and can even control it and make blobby shapes, but I don't get tunnel vision so often, although I am sure I could if I tried. Anyways, I have a bit of information that might help with your experiment. I noticed that closed-eye-hallucinations are very much more pronounced after a good cardio workout. I biked 3 miles at an average speed of about 15-20 mph and when I got back there were many different colors and shapes dancing around in my eyes (closed). A short (or long if you are in pretty good shape) and intense workout really calms the mind and appears to boost AVC for a small amount of time.
