What I noticed was that I was just kind of riding along on the edge, right at the transition point. Normally you just pass through that point fairly quickly, but it was like just hanging out right there. you can just play around there, and move in and out fairly easily. A slight bit of intention can make the shift, it's like the control is much finer. But the really amazing part was how awake I still felt the entire time while going from dream to awake and back to dream again.

This time was a distinctively different level of awareness, very unique feel to it, although the dreams didn't have much depth. I think that's also because I got in a bit on the late side after almost 8 hours of sleep. I've read that they are suppose to peak at 1 hour, but that's not correct for me. Think it would be better to take them at 0300 instead of 0400 because it takes 2-3 hours for me to get to the right state. This is the second time that's happened so next time I will start earlier.
Peter wrote:Your control must be good as you still need a reasonable level of ability to extend the dreams and to come in and out with intent.
I was working on the in and out control which is course much easier with G and C because of the extended slow transition. It gives you the chance to spend more time practicing that because you are just hanging out on the edge. Still haven't been able to extend the time on these yet but I still think that's partially because of not getting in earlier. Will try again in around a week.
