"Twilight of Consciousness" by publisher and author Robert E. Zucker, examines the dream state and how to achieve astral projection using simple, easy to follow, techniques.
Have you ever suddenly awakened from a vivid dream with an incredibly strong feeling that only a few moments ago you were involved in some bizarre activity in some distant land?
In a moments flash, you become transported from some strange place into a surprised wakefulness. Sometimes, these vague images still remain for a few moments, leaving you a bit perplexed and mystified. Many people just pass it off as a dream.
Or, was it a dream?
When we are in the midst of a night’s sleep, we experience a state of consciousness that still defies scientific explanation. A montage of images, sounds, vague memories and sensations appear out of the depths of our brains. While we are dreaming, we hardly ever think about the things we’re doing and seeing in this strange world within our minds.
We become completely engrossed in acting out a kaleidoscope of situations and fail to realize we are in a different place than in the working world. A dozen elephants could be roller backwards down a freeway and this scene may not even phase the unaware dreamer.
The dream would be less likely remembered after waking. The Astral becomes lost in a dream. We visit the Astral every night while asleep and remember our experiences as dreams after we awake.
Most of us, unfortunately, are swept across the Astral Plane unaware of anything between falling asleep and waking up.
The Astral becomes a nighttime fantasy clouded over by the veils of sleep and quickly slips away from consciousness. As soon as the morning alarm jolts us into wakefulness the rushing of thoughts and concerns for the coming day turn an evening of bizarre adventures into a confused, often fragmented, series of hazy memories.
Waking, resting, sleeping and dreaming are different phases of consciousness.
Conscious dreaming, or lucid dreaming, is still another “world” that we can become aware while having a dream A vivid, or lucid awakening, will enable you to taste and apple you pluck from a tree or you might reach out and touch a wall and feel the plaster or brick against your fingers. Maybe you can even see your fingers move through the wall.
The magical energy to create year own world is consciously at your fingertips. As you prepare for sleep, you should lie comfortably on your back.
Take a few, slow deep breaths to clear how your clogged mind. Inhale. Hold in your breath. Then slowly exhale. Feel relaxed and more rested. Breath inward and release the vital energy that maintains your body.
Let all of the troubles plaguing you from the waking world pass from your mind. Dismiss the thoughts that come rushing that upon you. Enjoy these few moments of peace and serenity as you retire. Let yourself sail away inside of the solitude of your mind.
While you are laying on your back, calm and rested, the monotony of the silence and darkness around you will soon begin to dull your mind. You will feel drowsy and desire sleep. You will become less aware of your surroundings and your body and mind slips into sleep.
The bed, pillow and sheets will no longer seem to exist. The world around you will begin to fade from interest.
Let it happen.
