It would seem I do not experience as much gravity to the Earth as some, or perhaps even most other OBErs.. While they work to set down awareness of the physical, in order to stabilize themselves in other environments without ‘snapping back’, I must maintain full conscious awareness of both—or even more environments simultaneously in order to accomplish the same.
Looking in on it from where I am now in time, the process of entering into this makes more sense. The picture is more complete. Years prior to a more total shift in consciousness I began bringing through the idea.. Speaking of it (somewhat ephemerally), penciling (somewhat remedially) images and graphs, teaching it in class while not even truly knowing -or knowing why.
Four years ago, in the summer of 2009 I was roused from my sleep near the 2am hour by a clear, distinct, male voice. By the time I am fully aware of what is happening the voice very simply, authoritatively booms “DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT THE PHYSICAL BODY SYSTEM.” To whom the voice is booming I do not know, although a good many are in this moment discernibly present. These words echo through me still, as though an instant has not passed since.
Lucid dreaming is defined in various ways by various people –I find it beneficial to take all these in collectively, in order to see what could be understood as the current collective [planetary] growth curve and how the concept has accurate expressions that are both broad and narrow; on the narrow end it generally denotes what is modernly called “the personal field”; a private rather than public area of consciousness. A personal, rather than shared experience territory.
In my first lucid dreams I feel sheer delight—no more—in the first three I wake up in there and, immeasurable joy bursting forth immediately squeal “I’m dreaming!”—throwing my arms out and falling back into the space behind me; I then shift straight back into physical awareness. When in this way I begin realizing that “waking up” is waking up to the fact that I am dreaming I never laughed so hard. I mean, after all the seriousness (seriously) what could be more funny.
When I was first awakened to the Wider Reality, the first related phenomena I noticed in my normal state of being is that I immediately could not use my brain in the same way as before. There was a decided feeling to the area where it perceptually rests, and to my awareness, but behind this there seemed to be nothing. There was no data, what previously I would have called “my memory”. I no longer had the same access to it as before. This phenomena, although felt more acutely in the beginning because it was so new continues to this day.
In regard to expansion of consciousness—shifts into additional consciousness space, going “out of body”, the following, for a period of time will generally be found helpful while you are:
1. Moving through fears
2. Clarifying your questions and coming into direct contact with your inner self
3. Integrating and finding avenues of expression for your experiences
