OMG, Richard, what happened to salyavin? He used to sound pretty even tempered and reasonable. Now he's saying vile stuff to you. And using the c word! Jeez... What is it that obscures your view of reality Share? Even if you randomly read only 1% of Willy's posts you'll know he is a pointless troll whose only "purpose" here is to annoy people. How mature do you think that is? This why he hasn't gone to play on Jim's site, because he's got nothing to say that isn't deliberately aggravating to someone, so who would want him? Unless Jim is playing a "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" game, he isn't going to want 300 dumb and predictable posts littering the place up every week. So we're stuck with him until someone starts a "say nothing as many times as you like" site. 10 years he's been doing it. At least! The longer he stays as the only troll here the stupider he is going to look, so he's welcome to waste his life nagging at me, it bothers me not one jot. From: "'Richard J. Williams' punditster@...

Apparently MMY dropped using this technique himself for some reason, but I found it quite enjoyable. People usually think thoughts just before going to sleep but quite often they are just random thinking without any direction. Until I was taught the "Night Technique" by Satyanand, I used another technique that I developed myself - you simply think of something positive to look forward to the next day and then slip into sleep. It works too, but not as well. There is something about the directed sound vibration than is a subtle relaxing feeling with the bija mantra - Laya Yoga while you sleep. > From: "'Richard J.

At least I assume it was a lucid-dream experience - I suppose one could have a normal dream which included the false thought that one was lucid when in fact one wasn't (if you can follow that explanation). What's more, I woke up (for real), mused about the dream for a minute, then fell asleep again and immediately went back into the same dream landscape in the same self-conscious, lucid state. Now I'd heard that when in a lucid dream you can alter the "dreamscape" to suit yourself. So you might find it amusing to flip over into being a Zero pilot on a kamikaze mission and diving into the Golden Dome in Fairfield. Whatever floats your boat. Anyway, though I was lucidly self-aware that I was indeed dreaming I couldn't change the story narration unfolding before me so just left the dream to run its course while absorbing the novel experience. My question is: is there some trick to getting the dream to change to suit your whim or is it a case of practice makes perfect? Or maybe most lucid dreams are like mine? Or maybe my will power is feeble compared with my imaginative power and others have a more dominant will? > The trick is to practice a Laya Yoga technique we learned from Satyanand: When you are ready for sleep you just sit up in bed and then let your bija mantra rest at the heart chakra for a few minutes. That way, the subtle currents from your Istadevata will permeate your entire being while you sleep. For example, my Istadevata is Saraswati, the Goddess of Learning, so by resting the bija portion of her mantra at the heart chakra, my intelligence will grow by leaps and bounds, right while I'm sleeping. Then, when you awaken in the morning you will feel refreshed and full of energy and knowledge. It's that simple! > Anyone had a similar experience? > Yes. A lucid dream is a dream in which the sleeper is aware that he or she is dreaming. From what I've read, the phenomenon of lucid dreaming has been well established by scientific research, so its existence is well established.
