Lucid Reading and Reality Shifts
I had an odd thing happen to me last month. As soon as it happened, I knew what it was, though, before that, I had no clue it was even a thing that was possible.
I am talking about lucid reading. It only happened one time and lasted all of two or three seconds, but it was enough of a shock to my system to register up there with a 5.7 earthquake. I took notice.
I was reading a good book. It was a time travel horse doctor pioneer story. The time travel bit might have been more important than I thought at the time.
I canít say everybody reading this piece has ever had a lucid dream or done a past life regression, but this was sort of like that. This was a past life regression viewed through the eyes of another person, the writer of the story. In fact, I was so thrilled with the book as I read it that I looked up information about the author, Elizabeth Woolsey, on the internet. I also felt a kinship with her that was inexplicable. It did not bother me. There have been a few times in my life when that has happened with other people, and I just chalk it up to something along the lines of, ďI must have known her in another time and place.Ē That is just another fun part of being a psychic. It happens.
Elizabeth Woolsey is a horse veterinarian in real life, and this figures into most of her stories, at least the three that Iíve read so far. Yes, I have been enjoying the stories that much. If you have Kindle Unlimited at Amazon, you can pretty much borrow all of the books Elizabeth has written. And, yes, writers who write and have their books listed on Kindle Unlimited also get paid for however many pages their readers end up reading. Itís something like .0043Ę per page. There is probably more to that particular story than I have reported just now, but itís also something to consider when you are a writer like myself and are looking to self-publish. They said on Google that people could earn more from their KENPC, which stands for Kindle edition normalized page count, than they do from all other forms of their books sold on the Amazon platform.
What happened is that as I was reading, I morphed into the story. I was there. I was a part of it. It became my own reality. No, I had not been drinking, nor was I doing drugs. It all just became very real.
Why I compared it to Lucid dreaming is that it also felt like that. Lucid dreaming is a dream that suddenly becomes real, and as you are dreaming, you know you are dreaming. In this state of mind, you can actually direct the course of your dream so that if there is something threatening going on, you can have a tsunami sweep all the bad guys away. Or you can fly. Or you can speak a foreign language.
With a past life regression, you are in a similar state of mind, and your focus is infinite. You actually feel the wind on your face and see the pyramids, people talk to you, and you can feel heat and temperature changes, you can see torchlight dancing and reflecting on the walls, and you can see a son you had over 100 years ago. Itís a reality shift that does not normally occur to folks in their everyday lives. At least, it never did to me before I turned the corner and opened to my psychic nature some 35 years ago.
This time the shift to my reality happened while I was reading, and I was very, very surprised by the experience.
I donít know how it happened, and I have not been able to replicate the experience since then. However, I find myself paying attention now to things I normally donít pay much attention to. Perhaps that was the idea. As I breathe, I become aware of how fresh the air smells. I listen to people talking from my study window, the everyday noises they make, hammering, talking, gardeners at work, and children playing. I find myself closing my eyes and reaching out for that otherworldly reality, that expanded psychic reality I sometimes take for granted.
When you create a new habit, it can sometimes take about three weeks for the whole process to become second nature. My intention is to, once again, take my psychic spidey senses to a higher level. Itís only going to help with the writing that I do. Maybe doing something like that for yourself could help with the things you do in your life.
Here is a quick way to do a past life or a childhood regression. Youíre going to go into a self-hypnotic state. Know that you are safe. Know that you can easily come out of it if an emergency presents itself. Know that you will always be able to return to the here and now at the end of it or even before it is over if you wish.
Before I start, I state my intention. I always do it silently in my head, but you can voice it aloud or write it out too. I say something along the lines of, ďI am going to do a past life regression. I know I will be safe. Please take me to whatever it is that I need to see.Ē The words are the same if you are doing a childhood regression.
Get into a peaceful state of mind. Promise yourself that you and your inner self will be safe. In fact, keep a pad of paper and a pencil or pen handy to jot the stuff down that wants to pull you away from the meditative state of mind. That will happen. In the beginning, it happens to everybody. Buy milk. Reconcile the checkbook. Check the tire pressure.
Anything and everything will crop up. Write down one word, milk, tires, or checkbook. Just one word, and youíll remember the whole thought after you are done with the regression. This is actually a good idea to do when you are meditating because the same sort of thing happens. Itís also when the thought of not having a chocolate cookie begins to cloud my thinking. It's just distractions. Donít get angry at yourself. Just try it again. Itís like learning how to walk. It never happened the first time you tried. You had to fall down a bit first, but you never gave up.
Close your eyes and gently sink again. I like to visualize myself going down a ladder slowly. Rung by rung. I also imagine myself sinking into a delightful body of water or just melting like the Wicked Witch of the West did when Dorothy threw mop water on her.
The next thing I do is remember what I was doing ten minutes before I sat down to meditate or do a regression. I might have been sitting here at my computer writing. Reading. Washing the dishes. Eating breakfast. Whatever. Just remember what it was briefly; you donít need a photographic memory. You donít have to remember every single detail. Just whatever it was you were doing a few minutes ago.
Next, remember what you were doing when you woke up this morning.
Next, remember what you did last night when you went to bed. Picture yourself taking your eyeglasses off and pulling the sheet over you.
Remember what you had for dinner last night. Wasnít it hot dogs?
Remember what you were doing two weeks ago. If itís hard to remember something like that, then remember the last time you were at the dentist or the last time you did laundry. Picture yourself folding socks or driving to work.
The idea is to keep moving back in time and picturing the circumstances where you were. This is the same as for a childhood and a past life regression. Gradually, go back in time. For me, pinning the memories to events and to the places Iíve lived at are easier to do. Because I went to so many schools in childhood, I just pick a grade at random and remember something about it. Like, in the 8th grade, I lived in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. I remember the hills. I remember the trees. I remember walking to school. These things you are remembering do not have to be actual memories, they are snapshots in time that surface for you to place yourself in a backward continuum.
So, you just keep going back in time until you canít remember anymore. Calmly, you say, ďTake me back to what I need to look at.Ē In the case of a childhood regression it will be something that happened in your lifetime. In the case of a past life regression, itís going to be in another lifetime.
And when you say, ďTake me back to where I need to beĒ thatís when you wait patiently. The first time you do this, it might not work; then again, it might work just fine.
The process of entering a meditative calm mind takes a bit of getting used to. Is this good for just meditating, my inner self was keeping me safe and getting me the hell out of Dodge quickly. He also said I should continue to try doing the regressions. He also said to remember that everybody has happy moments in their lives. He said the death scenes were full of drama and emotion and attracted attention. On my journeys, I was drawn to them. He said to keep in mind and remember the happier moments because everybody has them.
So, I took his advice, and my regressions became very interesting.
Itís sort of like when you first learn to drive. The person behind the wheel, for the first time in their life, canít spend their time looking out of the windows as the scenery rolls by. Thatís when you inadvertently steer towards what you are looking at, and before you know it, youíve crashed the car into somebodyís mailbox. With experience, the driving becomes safer.
So, lucid reading, lucid dreaming, and deliberate regressions, whether childhood or past life, are all somehow tied together.
Who knows? Maybe I will finally be able to read something in a lucid dream or in a meditative state. Iíll certainly tell you about it if I am ever able to learn how to do that. mediating or for doing past life or childhood regressions? No, this discipling of your attention creates a stronger focus for you that will enable you to apply yourself to all sorts of things like learning languages, cooking, or creating spreadsheets in Excel.
I can remember the first time I started doing past life regressions, I had not perfected the idea of a calm mind. I was also afraid of death at the time. I mean, who isnít afraid to die? But the scenes I saw were those of me dying. I did not like it. Because I was channeling at the time, I asked my guide what was going on. He explained to me that because I was new to the idea of past life regressions and of me.
