A few days ago I read something that ringed true. We cannot force AP, we can only create the conditions for it to happen even though it won't always happen.So following this advice, I've been trying to do so. Last night I woke up at almost 2am, trying to AP while figuring I couldn't even sleep. I tried, but my head was getting heavier. To which I figured after almost 3 hours I had a migraine. So I got up and drank some migraine pill. When I went to get some water and use the bathroom I saw my sister on the couch. "What are you doing there?" to which she answered, "There is a mouse in my room." So I went back to be, and realized how heartless of me to leave her there while I had two beds in my room. So I got up and told her that she could sleep in my room and she said ok but she will go later as she was on the phone.
I went back to bed and I was almost falling asleep after my migraine started to dissipate. I think I just fell asleep, and then my sister came in to sleep, which was great in triggering my AP experience. So it was win win. She didn't get to sleep on couch, and I got to AP. lol
It started with the vibrations, not as strong as before, it was rather quick actually compared to last time. Like 2 sets of different vibrations. First the one right after my body falls asleep and then a pause and a sudden one like going higher, I guess this is where the vibration change takes place. Also I didn't noticed any sound this time, not until later when I was waking up where I could hear my own brainwaves, kind of like the ones you hear on the brainwaves audio programs.
In any-case, I was now on the floor and I needed to control it since I wasn't. I was actually falling on the ground. I assumed control and flew. Again I tried to fly to NL. I tried this time to command myself to just appear there while I was above the sky. Then it was foggy and dark so I remember I have to ask for clarity. "Clarity!" And the fog started to dissipate, and something started to appear. At first I thought it was a castle, but later it took shape and it was the top of a ship. I ended up in these kind of small islands, like the Pacific's but on the northern waters, as it was cold and a bit snow-ish.
It was a pirate port. Something really small, made out of shipwreck, but where they exchanged goods. They saw me, so I knew it wasn't a physical place. I ask them how I could fly to NL, and they told me I couldn't, but to the south-west I could swim to Saint Martin. This don't make sense now as that is the tropic, and they were in a cold place. Maybe it was my mind manipulating the temperature as I expected it to be cold in NL. So maybe I didn't got to far from where I live. In any case, this don't matter as it wasn't a physical place. It wasn't however, a very high plane either. I wasn't scare, it was just, not nice.
I decided to swim then if I couldn't fly. I guess it being lower plane made it harder for me to fly. I jumped into the water remembering I can't swim, but that it didn't matter as I was in another plane I could do whatever I wanted. One of the pirates ask me if it isn't cold. I told him kind of laughing "it doesn't matter, I 'm not in my psychical body anyway." I heard another pirate saying "oh, so she's a traveler". Then the first pirated answered me with a smile, "well, you are brave." Another hint that I was in a lower realm. I saw they had boxes full of old clothing they were going to deliver somewhere.
I waved them good bye and started to swim. The waves were BIG but nothing you couldn't really swim. Yet, the water was something weird. I could hear the sea so beautifully I didn't cared the water was brown. It was very mud-like, but it wasn't mud, or dirty, it was just dark water. (Again, lower realm?) I didn't liked dark water as I'm scared of not seeing animals that could get me. I passed through a door to another portion of the sea which was enclosed. And then the next one, I didn't dare go further as I thought I might get lost. I turned back, and saw someone also swimming in that direction, so I decided to follow. But by this time, I remembered how AP is brief at first and I have like a clock ticking to do what I want. And that time was up, I was slowly coming back to my body, the waves of that brown sea still sounding clearly in my ear as if I slept by the sea. And with it I could hear my brainwaves.
When I woke up I was satisfied I could AP again but not so much as I couldn't do much. I figured I did learn some control though. Remaining conscious enough to ask for clarity and teleport. Even though the teleporting wasn't so good. I think it has to do that if I'm in another plane that not the psychical, there is no way I will end up in the actual place I want. So maybe next time I should just ask for guidance and go to higher realms and do something else. :)
I tried to AP again seeing that I was still numb. So I almost did, but instead, I lingered around my room, kind of in and out of the body. I could see my sister fighting about the mouse and hear my parents in the kitchen and light like it was daylight. But I managed to open one eye to pick and my sister was sleeping and it was still night and there was no one in the kitchen. So I knew I was half dreaming and took advantage of it instead of panicking like the last time it happened. I end up falling asleep and dreaming, but FULLY lucid dreaming. I didn't went again to the AP but I did managed to create a full lucid dream, which was fun, although didn't do much useful but fly and impress those in the dream XD until they created some sort of invasion in my house to which I was like, BLEGH! And went out and started to wake up little by little.
So, this was success number two. And some lessons were learned. :)
1. Can't force AP. Need to let it happen with the appropriate conditions.
2. The lower realms are harder to fly due to the density I guess. And there's no need to be afraid if you are confident enough.
3. The sound of the open sea is wonderful. (ok not a lesson but still! XD)
4. Even if I can't AP I can lucid dream.
5. I need to ask to go to higher realms instead of focusing on the earthly one as it might lead to lower realms.
6. I learned to as for control and clarity.
