Got out twice this morning! Almost a third, which would have been a record for me
I set my alarm for 5 hrs, went back to bed after 10 min. As I was falling asleep, I felt the phase coming on and then all of a sudden I was in it, standing on the beach, fully aware! This has never happened b4. I used to read about this on another site, I think it's a wild(wake induced ld). So my goal was to cut my hand like Michael challenged me. There were no scissors on the beach and I failed at conjuring up a pair, so i started biting my hand. I did not feel a thing! It was like my hand was a ghost. Then I lost it.
I stayed still and cycled a couple techniques and the vibes came. I strained the brain, made them stronger and then I was standing in my room. I checked myself out in the mirror, which was pretty accurate. I found a pencil and was about to stab my hand, but I fouled.
After these two short phases, I am now only going to concentrate on deepening and maintaining! This is where I am weak and need to focus.
