      Yeah I have read it, but it was a long time ago.

      In the process of reading your link, and it's really good. Are there more like this (written), I usually prefer reading this sort of thing as opposed to listening.

      As for the guy I mentioned some posts ago (the one who used his body as a channel for the 'source'), here's a link with loads of his stuff. You can also find more stuff by searching his name too: Paul Solomon.
      The Paul Solomon Source Readings Archives

      Bear in mind that some of these 'lectures' were actually a reading given for somebody specifically, but still doesn't take away any wisdom it may have for you

      Edit: Found a website on Neville Goddard's text archive! Probably the same one you found. http://www.realneville.com/text_archive_pdf.htm

      Also an additional one for the guy I mentioned above:
      http://www.paulsolomon.com/readings.html

      Going to be fun reading all of this stuff!

      Heyo!

      I've been continuing in the practice, I just didn't have much new to add this past month. Still here is a list of things I have been doing.

      Mind Practices:
      -Mantra Alarm Clock (passive): Set my alarm clock to wake me up with my mantra which is "Have heart", a call to my consciousness to believe even when I can't see it.
      -Dream jewelry (passive): A bracelet that says 'Dreams Come True' as a reminder through the day to keep my mind aligned with dream consciousness. On the other arm is a dream catcher bracelet for the same purpose.
      -Conversation: Conversing in depth with friends about dream reality
      -Reading: I bought some books including one by Neville Goddard and read through them the past month
      -Room Decoration (passive): I bought some inspirational posters and decorations that remind me to keep strong with the dream path. One wall decal I got makes it look like there is a hole in my wall leading to the universe, very surreal feeling.
      -Wish Jar (passive): any time I come home with change in my pocket I throw it in a wish jar. Make a wish, throw it into the jar. When the jar is full I'll bring it to a bank or something and these wish coins will be scattered around the world.
      -Cellphone background (passive): A background that reminds me to dream waking life consciously
      -Brainstorm: I am always developing stronger ways to condition my mind for dream consciousness, I also contemplate dream reality in depth in my free time


      What I am doing here is saturating my psyche with dream consciousness, the hypothesis is it will override waking consciousness. The genius of the passive methods is that they stay in the background as constant reminders keeping your mind in check as you go about your day.

      Hey!

      That sounds great! Love the wish jar idea and can just imagine how awesome it must look the decor leading to the universe

      I've been reading a lot of Neville Goddard's stuff and really gotta say thank you for showing me his stuff. I'm getting more and more used to just using my imagination for things and accepting that they'll come true and they have!

      So I've be trying to actively do that more and also am back to writing some short stories everyday just to inspire my dreams and things like that. Lots of small details of things I've been writing about appear in my dreams and waking life too. Lost a little focus lately but it's all good. Just gotta focus on that feeling of wonder and curiosity some more to keep me motivated.

      And I'm still playing about with the idea of retaining sexual energy. Been doing some yoga regularly too which helps. I'll try to maintain this creative energy for about a month or so and see how things feel and notice any differences.

      In general have been much more aware so it definitely feels like I am creating my own reality. Life is amazing haha!

      Nice all around Rodrodrod,

      And I can't help but agree! Life truly is a beautiful thing, more than I've ever known.

      My laziness has hindered me from maintaining Da Shit method, but I just realized that you are exercising your skill of prophecy by doing so.

      Hey Rodrodrod, as per ur question on the flash card thread post 52 here shows the difference between passive and active techniques (tekks). Passive tekks will allow u to go abkut your day doing dreamwork without actively trying. If you install many passive tekks in your daily life you will end up thinking from the dream mindset more often. It becomes a habit. Manifesting is a habit. We manifest what we habitually think.

      Sometimes there will be a random spike of high belief and insight, that is what being lucid is but rather than depend on a random spike of insight it is best to raise your baseline level of lucidity through persisting in lucid habits of thought. Passive tekks are actually my favorite and currently I have 15 diff tekks I do on a daily basis without trying. I will post later with more ideas of ways to implement passive dreaming of reality.

      Yeah I see, I was just thinking in terms of why certain things happen whilst others don't. It seems to be almost random at times. For example, today I was in university at a clinic which had 3 patients booked for the afternoon. As someone asked this I answered but they understood that there were 2 patients booked. So then we cleared things out but almost 10 mins later one of the patients cancelled so indeed there were now 2. Do you see what I mean? I had no desire for or against this happening yet it happened. But I agree that the passive techniques reinforce the habit and is always good to do them. I guess I am trying to work out the mechanics. But yes, please post more ideas if you have them, or you can even send me a pm. Always keen on hearing them!

      Cheers

      There is the idea that the universe is deterministic. In two ways. One if I play around with the position of the sun say move it back a few hundred miles people would freeze to death. If I move it a few hundred miles closer people would die from extreme heat. Sorry to be so morbid but everything is just the way it needs to be for a planet, solar system or universe to function. Scientists know and have said many times if you fiddle with the fundamentals of the universe it always has detrimental consequences. I think this deterministic idea trickles all the way down to our day to day lives in that what was meant to happen is going to happen. I think the creative aspect and in the realms of plausibility is the idea of multi universes. If scientist prove they exist beyond mathematical theory ( which I think they will) you would not need to create anything you just pick a universe that matches what you desire. In my humble opinion- namaste

      Will do a little later RodRodRod, give me some time to think on that as that is an interesting phenomena. Initial thoughts are that it may be related to synchronicity and how synchronicity works.

      Namaste, can you give a little more elaboration on what you mean? What sparked that thought?

      I think there's definitely a sense of the universe being deterministic but also that it's a paradox. So what was meant to happen will happen because it's a part of one of the possibilities. Like you cannot have something that is not possible as a possibility of happening, to happen. So in a way it will always happen as it's meant to since it's a possibility. Yet I think there are various possibilities which we can affect and alter the choices in our lives but it will still go in a certain path. So we should be able to choose the pathway or "universe" that matches our desire. Interesting to think about for sure.

      Yeah synchronicity does seem to be a factor. I was thinking also since we each have our own manifestations going on that co-exist, so the expectation of the other person influenced the outcome, but this doesn't explain every scenario so I think synchronicity does that better.

      Ya, still I understand what you are saying and synchroicity doesnt explain it fully either. It seems like you are asking why some events manifest when there is very little to no focus/attention/will behind it. That is a very good question. It actually sounds like there may be a force in play that we are overlooking. A force that is stronger than effort. Something that allows an idea to break past the threshold of thought into reality with absolute ease...

      I've been thinking that all of these daily habits and practices are very effective in getting us focused on a goal for manifestation but ultimately the determining factor for it all is AWARENESS which there are varying levels of. It feels almost impossible for us to maintain a high level of awareness all the time and I wonder why. It feels like it has a lot to do with willpower but then also affected by everything from diet, energy, stress, etc. I've often heard that a true master is conscious of every action and movement in terms of purpose which is fascinating but sounds exausting.

      Now from lucid dreaming practice this doesn't seem to work by only doing exercises like reality checks. I guess I don't know what I am getting to here. Feels like it's almost like we need to do it in order to do it if that makes sense. I also think that we are very limited in the awareness we do have. Since we don't really know the bigger picture it makes it harder to be aware, like we may know it theoretically rather than experientially. If we knew how it truly felt to be all there is, all there ever was, and all there ever will be for example, then we'd be easily able to create things, get out of our bodies at will, etc. But then it would almost be pointless as the whole point seems to be for us to remember how to do all these things hah!

      Just thinking out loud but if anyone wants to add or comment...

      This is true, awareness is important. That said, awareness tends to our habits. What do we have a habit of being aware of? That births our reality. Habit exercises remove the burden of constant CONSCIOUS awarensess. After pushing to build a habit it now becomes a constant UNCONSCIOUS awareness. No effort needed, it is an engine that is always on. That is the theory behind the practice.

      That said the mind can wander aimlessly even in our best efforts to remain focused. It's almost like consciousness is Super-ADD and this is whether we 'dream' or are 'awake'. We think the story makes perfect sense only because we are easily distracted and prone to assuming normalcy. We might think: Oh, I'm with my friends from highschool and we're on a rocket ship with Van Halen? What a normal cool day! Anyway, I hope there's food I'm hungry. Or maybe we could think: Oh, I walked through that wall? What a weak wall! I better fix it though, maybe my ex girlfriend who just showed up out of no-where might help me.


      Think about it though, if we didnt have issues with the mind wandering, everyone would be able to lucid dream easily 100% of the time. It would be as easy as holding the minds focus on the dreams of choice as we drift to sleep. (Not that we need to sleep to lucid dream)((Also maybe it really is that easy and we are just deluding ourselves into thinking its not LOL))

      Honestly, I dont have a solution to your question, yet it is a wonderful question. Maybe the answer lies in what DOES capture our attention for extended periods and how? For example:

      Stories
      Movies
      Videogames
      Beauty
      Tasks
      Etc...

      When thinking about it like this, we may be able to find something that will allow us to anchor our attention in the correct spot with enough persistence and fortitude to make shockwaves of dream-change in reality.

      I see, I guess as long as you are aware that you are unconsciously aware, if that makes sense. Because often enough when a habit is formed we then tend to overlook it so it goes back to being on autopilot.

      I think that one of the problems we have is the way our society is built, the way the system works, also as a result of the increase in technology, laws, etc. There is too much distractions, stress and we get lost in the theater of life. We are probably still in the process of adapting to this, but there is a definite disconnect in our society with the important aspects of life and nature.

      Maybe it should be as easy as easily lucid 100% of the time, but then people wouldn't appreciate it as much, so in that sense I am thankful for knowing what it's like to not be lucid all the time so that when I do I am somewhat appreciative. But thinking about those examples you gave me and from my own interest and experience, I see that a common factor in those experiences is the sense of loss of perception of time which is something we are not so aware of in our day to day as we are stuck with the illusion of time always rushing off whereas if we were still hunters and gatherers we wouldn't have the same sense of urgency. Maybe I'm wrong of course. But yeah, think when we lose the perception or need for time it is easier for us to access the past and future as it is all happening simultaneously.

      Another thing that perhaps includes this habitual practices is to be habitually creating everything. Since the more we do it the easier it should be to do it. That's one thing I'm trying to incorporate into my life is just to always be imagining things I would like to see manifested whenever,wherever. So forming the habit of frequent creation would definitely be helpful as it would automatically make you aware in a way, since we are always in the process of unconscious creation.

      Society, the laws, the system. Not to worry, that is just us in confusion with ourself. We are one.

      Also we are always creating, i think, even as unaware of it as we may be.


      As for time, that is a good mystery that ties in well. Every moment of experience is non-local, meaning a 'moment' has no place or time where it exists.

      A moment is like an idea. In a moment is the idea that 'this' moment happened before it and 'that' moment happened after it. In a moment is the idea of sensations of sounds and touch. In a moment is the sensation of time passing too. The sensation of time passing does not mean time is passing though. It is an impression, and a convincing one at that. Still, having a strong impression that time is passing does not mean that is what is actually happening.

      Its a fascinating thing, please let me know if that made sense

      Yeah but the confusion means we are not feeling one with ourselves, even though we may know it theoretically we don't know it experientially, otherwise the world certainly wouldn't be in the state that it is. But I do think we are on the brink of a shift in consciousness. But it's not something that interrupts manifestation anyways.

      Yeah I agree, I think the same, I only meant that maybe the habit of constantly exercising CONSCIOUS creation in our minds all the time would be a beneficial habit as you've pointed out about habits. In this way we would be more aware in a way since the habit is for us to be creating things consciously. And the more we create consciously, the easier it becomes for us to create consciously as we would be aware of things as they are manifested. Don't know how feasible this is though. So maybe there is a reason why we are unconsciously creating and how even in our lucid dreams we can alter the dream but we aren't necessarily creating every aspect of it.

      I think I get what you mean. How every moment has these aspects that make up the moment but they are not necessarily true since we are limited with our senses and perception. There are certainly too many variables that we are unaware of or simply don't understand working to create each of these moments. But still I think we are able to access these moments that are in the "past" or the "future" when we are truly in the now and just being. Things like precognitive dreams, premonition, instinct are moments when this is happening for example. Or when looking back at memories, we can alter our perception of that "memory" and even change how we feel towards them, and in a way creating a new moment in the present and "future".

      I think another key aspect that ties in well is how we feel about things. I honestly feel that our emotions are the surest way for us to understand what is going on and for creation. I just think we are not sensitive enough, yet. Like in dreams, we can just know what things mean and the intention behind it if we are AWARE enough. It all goes back to Awareness in my mind, and being truly aware also has to do with being in the now fully.

      Heyyyooo!

      Morning,

      You bring up a really good point about the current state of things. Its almost like a Godlike amnesia. I've wondered if this state we are in is the result of some kind of ancient war we've forgotten. Or maybe this amnesia was self induced for a reason that has more magnitude than we currently understand. Another possibility is that we go through cycles of high awareness and low awareness or 'awake' and 'asleep' as the eons go by and this is just another sleep cycle. Its a fun idea to toy with because you are right. Being the God we are, what's up with the resistance to manifest? Sometimes I even daydream about what kind of memories I could have forgotten from eons ago when we lived liberated in paradise, a land outside of time where a part of us may still consciously reside.

      Also, yes good point on awareness. With awareness, often the word gets mentioned as if awareness is a passive thing. As if we are aware of something that already exists here and now.

      Another way of viewing awareness is actively. This could be considered Creative Awareness. Where we create a thing into being by being aware of it.

      I havent thought too in depth on that idea, passive vs. active awareness. It seems though that being great at active awareness is a path to instant manifestation, if it is understood experientially that is.

      I think it's all a part of the "plan" you know. Like you say, self induced. Also like you say, it's all a cycle, as we can see this quite easily when everything has cycles and a duality to it. It explains why people have different levels of awareness and are at different stages of spiritual/personal growth; in order for it to work we need to have the unaware person just as much as the aware. Otherwise like we've said above, there would be no point if we already knew everything and didn't have a reset system, it's all a part of the fun. The Journey. It can be a frustrating journey at times but it sure is good since I don't believe anything really matters, and we will all reach the "end" anyways, only to start again haha. And this process goes on infinitely for all levels, just depends on how much you zoom into it. Just as quick as we take a breath and release it universes are being created and destroyed... But yeah, What is up with the resistance to manifest! We are probably too unevolved in the whole cycle, like children we don't know how to use our bodies and mind to it's optimum. But we'll get there

      hmm interesting distinction of awareness, it seems to almost be an on and off kind of thing that once it reaches a threshold you know it and even if you forget it has already been created due to that awareness. I wonder if there is a limit to how much awareness we can have, as we are certainly limited by the body, but otherwise, in dreams we can certainly feel seemingly impossible things, or with the use of certain substances, meditation, etc. Need to experiment more with this in lucid dreams. Transcend!

      Well, Creative Awareness is very cool. It is the idea that things exist because of our awareness of them. So, if we have an untrained awareness then you are habitually aware of whatever you are used to being aware of. Then your reality is born from that.

      What if you could increase the amount of time you are aware of great things? Would this effect what reality you experience? Considering that reality is a field of awareness, my thoughts are that being more selective about what we are aware of will impact our reality.

      The strength of awareness translates into level of realness. For example a rich and wealthy man has a strong awareness of wealth and riches and a very low awareness of poverty.

      Even what we experience this very moment is the same. The only reason we believe we are experiencing this moment, is because of how convincingly strong our awareness of this moment is. We are not convinced we are flying in a blimp with the queen of england because our awareness of that idea is comparatively weak.

      This is just an idea on consciousness and hopefully I am communicating it well. I have been practicing saturating my awareness with specific concepts and it does seem to work. What I see as a result is synchronicities so far where thoughts I have been thinking seem to burst foreward into experience. Very cool. Keeping tenaciously consistent should magnify the results.


      As far as what you speak of on zooming in, this forum post seems to mirror that idea well:

      Yeah seems to be that way. Synchronicity is an example of it, which I had been thinking about for some time on how to describe it's existence and your wording and explanation fits perfectly for it. Synchronicities are only possible with our awareness of it (of both the first event and the second event that connects with it).

      I think this is a great idea. I've had some similar thoughts which I then tried to implement into my life by minimising activities that are not necessarily creative or productive and take that time to learn useful skills and such but eventually I lost focus and fell back to the same pattern, but I also noticed how that pattern is somewhat reduced and even then there is a pattern in itself of becoming aware of being too low in awareness of creative and productive activities (hope that made sense). Simply put, we have ups and downs in awareness but even when we have low awareness we eventually become aware of being too low in awareness. So in that sense it doesn't really matter that much as we will still be progressing.

      Yeah this is very true. You can often see the opposite when a poor man keeps on complaing about being poor, thus increasing his awareness of being poor. That's why I try not to complain about anything, and be thankful and if I want it changed then I can work towards that by focusing on it. That's why life is good. It gives you everything you desire all you need to do is focus your intention on it.

      I love to see the world like it's a dream and that as soon as I close a door,whatever was behind it ceases to exist until it is opened again and I can never be 100% sure that it will be the same place again. I suppose most veteran dreamers do this often. It really opens up your life to manifestation when you can feel and know that anything can happen.

      You did an excellent job at communicating it. Cool thread, exactly what I meant with the zooming but way more beuatifully put

      Hey, I like this thread, it's a lot liky my own thoughts on the matter.
      I find my mind very strange, so I do like experimenting with it. I am experimenting with Law of Attraction and many other things

      It's getting better, although still not quite there, I am still unhappy, although it's getting better as I am getting better. For the past few days, using a new technique I was able to "reprogram" my subconsciousness effectively. I can now tell myself to remember things or to get new habits, and most of the time it works. Definitely will continue that, finally I can focus on things I am doing.

      Among other things, I "programmed" thoughts like "I decide I want new X or Y" wherever I felt I need something. But I am broke so I was not expecting that I will.. well that I will be able to go the store tomorrow and buy those things Today I had completely random opportunity that let me earn a few pounds, just like that, with almost zero effort. Coincidence ? Trust me, I've learned over the past few months that coincidences are pretty much non-existent (when it comes to important things). It's all attracted or manifested, however you want to put it. I manifested those new things in 2 days, Lol. I will literally go and buy them tomorrow even though technically I could live without them, I think it's a good way to show appreciation to the universe, hehe.

      Another very weird thing that has happened recently, I was wearing glasses for almost 3 years. I was. Yeah. A week ago I stopped, just like that. I felt weird at a party where I was the only one in a large crowd wearing glasses... next day I woke up, decided not to put them on. I haven't since and I never think about them. But I did have an actual eyesight problem...so what's up ? I have no idea. I just don't experience any problems from not wearing them - not just that but my eyesight is actually improving. I can read from the distance I couldn't before, and I will never wear glasses again. I'll just say I had a laser surgery when people ask, Lol. Easier to explain than manifestation of self-healing

      But it comes with a cost. I experience something I'd call derealisation episodes where my imagination does feel more real than the world :/ this gets me very depressed because it feels like I am trapped here in the boring physical reality... I think I might be, if the soul is real then I am reincarnated here but it's not all I am, so you could say I am indeed trapped here. Good news is, I found the way to ground myself so I am actually focused on what I am doing and I'm enjoying the physical reality more, though it still feels... like I don't belong here.

      I have manifested many things in my life. One thing I have manifested was an unhappy love... although I've seen it differently now I realised I manifested that whole event. I miss my friends from my country (studying abroad atm) and so I meet a guy called the same as my 2 best friends who also happens to come from my home town (40 000 citizens, what are the odds, right ?). It goes further, it's a ridiculous chain of events that leads me where I need to be and I love it.

      Yet I am still unhappy. Guess why ? Because I have manifested this unhappiness. How fast can I fix that situation ? Pretty damn fast I think
      Healing my eyes, attracting money and a new way to earn money (a job of a sort), becoming the confident person I always wanted to be, finally being able to focus and use my intellect (lack of focus was my curse for years). Also I don't have OCD any more, that thing crippled me for years, haha.

      And yet I am still unhappy. I think it is time to change that. I give myself a week. I manifested RIDICULOUS things in the past 2 weeks. I have a hard time deciding between a bunch of new friends, getting into a professional project that will likely jumpstart my career, fixing my eyesight, (partially) repairing my financial situation, becoming so much more confident, ability to re-program my subconsciousness, huge increase in my cognition (I think it comes from greater focus) ... I'm not sure which one is the weirdest xD especially given the synchronicities that accompany it all, one random event leading to another just like that.

      And yet I can still sometimes get into a gloomy and depressed mood. One more thing to manifest I think I'll write myself another "manifestations" list. This is what jumpstarted it all, I wrote it and every day I was simply updating the list with notes on thing that were going towards that direction. That note grew to unreal proportions, Lol.

      So even though I can feel down sometimes, you DO create your own experience. At least I do, but I don't believe I am so different from everyone else.
      Peace

      Why are you still reading ? Go MANIFEST your life !

      Nice man! Glad you enjoyed the thread and that you shared some of your own experiences. I'd be very interested in hearing more about how you go about with your 'reprogramming'.

      It's only natural that we lose awareness and may feel down from time to time, I can feel it when it happens to me and I'm suddenly propelled to act on it since I know that it's all a matter of choice. We can be in control if we want. And once you know this it's really easy to change the way you feel.

      I think we all have time's in our lives where we feel out of place, or like we don't belong here. I think it's completely fine to at times enjoy your imagination more than waking life. Since it's all experience, just like our dreams. It's about balance you see. But again this will always be a matter of perspective and there are always 2 ways we can see things. To feel unhappy will only manifest more unhappiness, and also it's quite easy to fall into the idea that we are not there yet, and if only we can have this or that, but the truth is that we are there! Like I keep saying, It all comes down to awareness, and being in the now. Just be thankful and the universe will reflect it back. This short life of ours is only temporary anyways - Life is change.

      I like your idea of the list, sounds like it can be very helpful to maintain a focus and as a basis of seeing what is actually being manifested or not.

      Thanks for the answer I like talking about these things, very few people I know irl want to discuss them
      Today I've realised I can't be emotional... when I get emotional I manifest bad things :/ I tend to experience very strong emotions often, which is good but it can lead to well, more negative emotions. I just realised I've been emotional over a certain event in my life and now I see what I have been afraid of manifest, but it's okay, I feel like I am only learning how to use it.
      What is different about me, I don't know exactly, but I know I am different because I meet people who think like me (well, 2 people so far that I know of) and they describe the same stuff I am going through, nobody else get it when I try to explain. My subcounsciousness is actively listening, so to speak, and I think that is why it's all happening so suddenly and why the reactions are so strong. I think that is a double-edged sword that I couldn't handle most of my life. But it can be a blessing

      Today I was teased with the worst kind of tease...by a person I consider my friend although I realise all he does is putting me down. If he did that a week, surely two weeks ago I think I'd break. But every day I handle my emotions better and this was an excellent test of that - all that happened was my heart started going faster, thats all. About my friend, well - I think he needs to start seeing me in a different light because it's a very toxic relation we're having. It's odd because I realise he cares about me but also he needs someone he can feel superior about... I think the worst nightmare regarding me is me becoming succesful so he can no longer boost his ego. Makes me sad because as bizarre as this relation sounds we know each other for 7 years and had A LOT of good time together. But some things do need to change between us.

      Oh yeah - I have realised the technique I am using for the past few days that granted me the ability to focus (after being unable to for years) and this way to reprogram my consciousness is in fact described on these forums (should be somewhere).
      It's ADA - All Day Awaraness. It's very similar to it, I've read about it years ago when I was far more into Lucid Dreaming, the technique I "developed" for myself is very similar to ADA though I was unaware of it at the time (randomly recalled it yesterday). So if anyone feels like trying I'd suggest reading about it or asking me via pm because I am always happy to help people.

      From the dream perspective your friend is you
      You tease your self
      Dream your sorrows
      Dream your joy
      Would you get angry at your own shadow?
      Would your reflection in the mirror respond to a stern talking to?
      Maybe. After all, anything is possible.

      If we want our reflection to smile: we smile
      If we want our shadow to dance: we dance
      If we want reality to bend: ?

      Hm.. is it all easier said than done
      Or..
      Is it really that easy..

      Just a few minutes ago, this happened to me:

      I was not exactly dozing in chair, not asleep but you know.... open eyes and feeling like I'm heavy and tired... Yet my mind was concentrated on staying awake. I observed my consciousness state... and at some point I felt some kind of change. I took a hold of that state. And I observed the feelings.
      I looked on my laps, and then I had something like idea, but without thoughts. Idea like feeling and head of my wife appeared on my lap. I saw her to great detail, sleeping. The detail of hair, skin... was very high. And I moved my hand to touch her hair, to pet them- I was fascinated I didn't felt her hair. Yet hair moved away from my hand. And then as I moved my hand, it moved into her head. And I saw my hand inside her head, her head was at the same time solid like and transparent, so I saw also my legs bellow that head. I blinked my eyes, the vision didn't vanish. I felt like I could do more. I moved my hand above head to where her neck and torso should be and it appeared there. Without clothes. Again in great detail. I moved my hand above it just to touch the surface- I didn't felt it. My concentration slipped as I was about to create lower part of body and my wife vanished. I was with my hand above place, where she slept in this vision(dream?)
      This was truly merged dream(or created vision) and waking state. During whole time of this experience I was sustaining different state of mind. It felt funny in my head. I feel it even now a little, but it is receding away fast. Nothing erotic was in this vision, the state of consciousness wouldn't allow such distraction. During whole experience I knew that it was not normal, and I was in full control. Sort of. I wouldn't be able, probably, to do something different, something that feeling/intuition made me to do... But at the same time I wanted to do exactly what it led me to do.

      That's a really interesting experience. I gotta say that this inbetween state is a very powerful state as I've experienced a couple of times when I was a bit sleep deprived. Once I was just sitting on the bus almost dozing off when I look outside the window and see a person going to cross the street and then got hit by a car. I blinked in shock only to realise that it never happened and that there was no person or car there at the moment. It was so vivid though that you couldn't tell the difference. And also how at times when I was sleep deprived I could just shut my eyes and immediately see a completely different place and people and everything. Much like 'Tomorrow Land'

      So there's definitely something in those states that may help with manifestation in waking life since the brain can't distinguish what is "real" or "imagined" and the imagination is sort of running freely. Would be interesting to know what makes those states. I know that our brain frequency changes when we dream for example.
