Well, it sounds fascinating. Thanks for the info Summerlander. I've been LDing fairly regularly ( naturally)most of my life, and managed some control of situations and dreamscapes, but never realized, until very recently, how much more there could be. I'm still quite a novice though. I will search out the other book by Raguga as well.
Looking forward to yours! :)

It's always fascinating when we're dealing with consciousness and the realm of the mind. :-)

Laberge talks about all forms of induction but it is Raduga that stresses the importance of multiple re-entries. He says a foul (undesired exit from the phase state) does not have to be the end of the experience.


Re-entries are something Ive been working on for the past few months. I managed one of those successfully last night and at times have done up to 4-5 reentries into the same dream (after drop outs).
........

Im currently having about 3 spontanous LDs per fortnight. (I dont do reality checking). Unfortunately thou my LDs currently are being frustratingly short often not leaving me time to do my challenges (hence my often need to reenter). Last nights on the reentry.. I only got walking 3 steps before I dropped out again without warning. oh well.. the bright side is at least Im getting a lot of reentry practice.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

That's right, tania. It's very easy to foul. All it can take is for someone to think about the physical body to trigger a return. It is also important to perform protraction techniques during the experience - the most effective ones tend to rely on sensory amplification. When you're not doing this, focus on carrying out a planned mission.

By the way, I'm only coming from Raduga's school of out-of-body travel, guys, I understand if you are used to doing things in a slightly different way.

I may advocate re-entry into the phase (LDs/OOBEs), and it's really good practice because if a DILD collapses you can always re-enter using the separation technique, but I don't always practice what I preach...

For instance, this morning I made my kids breakfast and went back to bed for a quick nap before taking the to school. I lay in bed next to my wife and was not even thinking about lucid dreaming. After a lapse in consciousness I came to and heard what sounded like my eldest son coming in the room and complaining about something but could not make out what he was saying...

Of course, this was a bogus event concocted purely in the mind and I soon realised that because it was so unlike my son. So, I got up and looked at me and my wife in bed. The bedding was white instead of blue and when I looked at my hands and arms they were transparent. I floated over the bed and was amazed by the three-dimensionality of this bedroom environment. I had no plan so I decided to focus on flying out of the house. I enjoyed flying over roofs and treetops under a clear blue sky and landed to inspect the front garden of a house. I jingled some chimes hanging on the side of the house and then remembered that I still had to take the kids to school. My desire to return was sufficient to make me immediately wake up in bed...

In this case, re-entering would not be ideal. If this had happened at the weekend, then it would have been a different story. I guess it's a matter of getting our priorities right.

Once a month :( But this week I discovered SSILD and it got me a lucid dream(possibly 2 but I don't remember) on my first try.
Roxas: Did you have fun chatting with the ghosts?
Sora: You shouldn't call them "ghosts". Sure something seemed a little off but I'm sure they're still my friends
