Saying hi and how to be more motivated after waking up?

Post by peterwilli » Mon Mar 18, 2019 7:24 pm

Hi there,

I'm Peter, and I found out about the phase a while ago. I've had natural lucid dreams and out of body experiences for a long time. As a kid, I would often exit my body, and I got scared, tried to grab my toys but my hands went straight through them. I never really panicked, but always thought it was a way my parents would make sure I would fall asleep and not get distracted and play with my toys.
This kept going on all the way in puberty. After that, it stopped for almost 10 years. I still lucid dreamt from time to time.

I guess the reason why it stopped was that real life became too good. Later on, I grew curious again. The reasons for that were because I more and more started to doubt reality as it is. What really happened when I was a kid?
I tried many methods for lucid dreaming or astral projection but none seem to work. Then someone introduced me to the phase. At first, I was like: "What?! Waking up after a few hours and then just go back to sleep? That can't possibly work!". Well, guess what, it did! And at once!

I can talk for hours about the first experience but I don't want to make it too long, and you are all familiar with the phase as it is :) The way I learned first about the phase is with the "exit your body in 3 days" videos, as the ebook was a bit too difficult for me to go through.

But after a couple of successful attempts, I decided to buy the latest ebook, and am reading that one now! It's so cool to see that so many people seem to have similar experiences. When I was a kid we barely just had internet and there was no way of knowing if there were others sharing the same experiences.
So that's the quick intro :D I'm glad to be here.

Now to my question, lately I have been having issues in entering the phase - mainly a motivational issue. I'm going to bed thinking I'm really going to do it. I'm setting my alarm after 5 hours of sleep (12:00 to 05:00) (it seems the best time for me after a couple of tries). But once I wake up I'm like: "meh, it's too much effort to get out of bed", and I skip the whole phase.
I also took a break for a while so I could catch up sleep in case I was sleep deprived of trying too often, but none of it works. I also have to add that in real life I had some things going on that took more of my energy than usual.

I'm gonna try again tonight and really hope to be motivated enough :D

In my case, to stay motivated consist to have a real "target", a powerful challenge or a real reason to enter in the phase. The "goal" and what you want to get after the experience is very important.

Thanks, I managed to enter again after having a clear target. It's the first time in a week last night!

Hi Peter, I have been away from this forum for quite a while. Life got in the way. I now have much more time on my hands. I feel your pain. I tend to do the same as you ...meh! however, I am determined to succeed once again. Elenwe has a good point...motivation. I recently met someone in the phase and want to meet up with them again, so that is my motivation. Reading everyone's experiences may help as well . Stay active in this forum as well. Just keep reading about OBEs and the Phase. I tend to have many different interests, but have made up my mind to concentrate on the Phase for now. Look forward to hearing about your trips. I have a few posts about mine if you care to read. My daughter used to be here as well, her name is Luna, she has had some good experiences as well.
