Getting Closer to Projecting?

I took a nap this afternoon and while I was laying in bed getting ready to fall asleep, I imagined myself in an elevator that was quickly going up. I must have started falling asleep because it seemed at one point that I was looking outside of my eyelids, even though they were closed. I could see my chest of drawers through closed eyelids. At another point, my hands were tingling. I do not know if these are phenomena and experiences experienced during the pre-projection phase, but I hope so. I've only read about 35 pages of the book and we haven't even got into how to project, yet, so it could be that simply my intentions are assisting me.

Even though your eyes are closed, your third eye is opening and taking you to another dimension of your Soul. It's surreal, but wonderful.

This sounds very interesting. I don't know much about the topic but I'll definitely follow your progress and see what this stuff is all about.
Good luck!

Alexys, It is surreal! Even though I haven't projected yet, just seeing through closed eyes if even for a brief moment was exciting to experience. Right now I'm practicing at different times of the day to put my awareness in a place outside my body, such as a foot beyond my right cheek. It started off with me putting my awareness in my chest, as opposed to my analytical head.

Brian, I've never projected before, yet, but I know there is more to sleep than just dreaming. It all started when I had my first lucid dream. That was proof that there was more!

Did you consciously try to have a lucid dream, or was there some kind of technique you were following? I've never tried but I've always found lucid dreaming fascinating.

The first time I had a lucid dream, I had been utilizing the reality check method. Throughout the day I looked at my watch to make sure the numbers looked normal. (You need a digital watch for this to work.) In the year 2000, I had a dream where I looked at my watch. The numbers looked funny, and that is how I knew I was in a dream. I was walking down a hall and there were various doors. I got a little too excited, though, and too much excitement can cause the lucidity to end. I'll post my first lucid dream on the blog so you can read about it.
