      Is there any bad effect like energy imbalance in doing Throat visualization technique ?

      Every time when i use this technique, i become lucid within half hour. But i fear if it make any energy imbalance in my chakras or energy body. Is there anyone who use throat visualization regularly or know about this topic?

      Hey Anvish, I have read about the throat visualization technique in Andrew Holecek's Dream Yoga: Illuminating Your Life Through Lucid Dreaming and the Tibetan Yogas of Sleep. and I've come across it elsewhere too. Nowhere have I found any information suggesting that it could cause any kind of energy imbalance in any way. I think the main idea with throat visualization - at least for lucid dreaming - is to help train your mind to be able to focus in such a way as to diminish discursive thought and increase visualization abilities. In Holecek's book, it also suggests that you use a mantra-like anchor as you are attempting to fall asleep. The example he uses is "Tonight I will recognize my dreams to be dreams." Maybe others have different opinions, but I wouldn't worry about affecting your energy in a negative way while doing this type of visualization. I hope this helps in some way. Good luck!

      Also, that's awesome that you become lucid within half and hour using this technique! Reading that makes me want to give it some work. Do you combine throat visualization with WBTB, or when do you usually perform it?

      Wow Zelcrow, your knowledge seems to be almost endless! Are there any books on lucid dreaming you haven't read?

      The only thing I want to add is, a mantra should always be set in present tense, not future, and should be strictly positive, never use any negative terms like Won't or Not. I know yours isn't negative - just wanted to throw that one in there too for anybody reading who might not know this already. But if you use future tense the mind doesn't see it as something you're doing right now, but always as something you will be doing in the future, so it isn't as effective. So more like "I recognize my dreams to be dreams". Just a tip.

      Thank you very much, Darkmatters! I have spent a good bit of time reading about LDing so far, but I still feel like there's a lot more to learn. Where I feel I'm lacking most is experience, but I am working on that.

      Phrasing intention in the present tense really makes sense as you explain and Skipper1100 wrote in his personal MILD method thread. I'm going to start incorporating that into my mantras. It seems like almost every place I've read about it mantras are phrased in the future tense, though why that is never is explained.

      This does bring to mind another thought on mantras that I'd like to hear others' opinions on, but it's a bit tangential to this thread so I might make a new one for it.

      zelcrow i had LDs using throat visualization with and without wtbtb. i have tried it in the initial stage of sleep (in NON REM period) as well as after 4 and half hours of sleep. In both case i got 90% success. most of my LDs are achieved using this technique. i am asking about the side effect is because , when i use this technique that day i feel more centered and very alert. That means the technique is not just causing some Psychological effects but also some energy changes. Thats why i fear, if it make any energy imabalance .
