Hypnagogic Hallucinations

Postby SnorlaxDreamer » 19 Jul 2013 12:09

I have a question, some more advanced people could answer. I read an article on Rebekka's many methods of becoming lucid. I eventually found a rather calming method (the phrasing in your head "100. I will become lucid. 99. I will become lucid. 98. I will become lucid... and so forth). Due to me being a latenighter, my brain was rather sleep deprivated, and I was more than ready to go to sleep. I put myself to bed on my back - and my arms onto my stomach - as I started to count.

As I reached the numbers around 75, I felt a wierd sensation stream over me. I felt like I was in a state between far far away, and still in my bedroom. I've never felt such a feeling before going to sleep. Suddenly, my eyes started to flick rapidly. They started to kind-of shake violently. Some of my muscle groups of my whole body started to jolt as well. I felt as if my bed was shaking, and I heard some odd sounds in the meanwhile. Due to my extremely racing hardbeat, and the adrenaline rushing through my body, I eventually moved my feet and woke myself up. The hypnagogic hallucinations faded in almost an instant. From there, I was unable to do such trick again. I did also see formations of colors on my eyelids, and tried to create a dreamscape.

Now I want to know; How far were I to becoming lucid, and what should I do if something like that happens again. Will I just simply pop into a dream if it keeps on going, or should I really try to imagine my dream? And if I am unable to, then what?

I've read that it might be a spontaneous OBE, and if I can control and pulsate the vibrations; there are no turning back. It will eventually lead to OBE. But it might be something else. I want some answers from someone having had the same experience as me, or someone who knows what that was! :-D
