I had the opportunity for a late morning nap Nov. 13th with the hopes of sleep paralysis(I get it almost always during a late morning nap) since I’ve been experimenting with astral projection lately (no luck yet).
After falling asleep on my back, I hit the jackpot. As I was laying there I tried my absolute hardest to will my consciousness (or astral body, haven’t experienced it just yet) out from behind my eyes in the pineal gland area. I started to see a bright soft white light, thought that it was happening, and I slipped into an instant lucid dream.
I was on top of a very high mountain that had a light coat of snow on everything. I walked to the edge of the cliff to look down, but noticed some small doll figures of different Egyptian gods (Ra, Thoth, Anubis, and I think Horus) by some rocks to my right. Once I noticed Thoth (Egyptian god of wisdom and knowledge), I instantly thought about how I’ve been waiting for my next lucid experience to speak with him. So, I decided to give it a try (my first lucid dream summoning).
I looked to my left where there was a clearing, and as I did, just with the thought of summoning him, he was already there. A giant, black, almost fat Buddha version of the bird god.
(It was as almost we were communicating with thought, because everything would happen automatically as I thought it, and I have never been able to control the setting of my lucid dream, only interact with it as of yet)
I approached and decided to ask for guidance on astral projection; how to leave the body to be more specific. I sat in a typical meditation style, which I felt he wanted me to do. He then said in a very deep manly voice, “The first step to leaving your body is to bring focus to your eyes.”
As he spoke this, I closed my eyes (now back in sleep paralysis), and brought attention to my eyes. After a moment, I opened them again (now back in the dream state), but Thoth was gone and I was alone.
I approached the cliff again, this time I looked down and it was so deep that my vision couldn’t see through to the bottom. After peering down, I looked to the right to a funny rock formation. It was shaped just like a diving board, I knew that was its purpose.
I thought about using it as a launching pad for flying, but felt apprehensive for some reason. I decided to just go for it anyway, and as I did so….I woke up 🙁
Probably not, but could this have been a lower level astral projection? The way my thoughts were being carried out instantly has never happened at this level before. I’ve seen the bright light before in a past SP experience, but nothing happened and I woke up.
Neat stuff we can do with our minds.
