 Chapter 5: Conscious Dreaming--How to Connect with Your Multidimensional Self

The Illusion of Being Disconnected

"You have not understood the great give-and-take that exists between waking and dream experience. You have been taught to believe in the existence of an artificial barrier between the two that does not in fact exist. By suggesting before sleep that solutions to problems be given you, you automatically begin to utilize your dream knowledge to a greater extent, and to open the doors to your own greater creativity".—Seth


Seth is one of the sources that has been very helpful when figuring out the dream state and how to consciously connect to it. The reader may think that Conscious Dreaming is nothing new, and perhaps you are not even interested in digging into it. I would say, not only is it extremely interesting once we’ve got the hang of it, but it’s also a necessary step in becoming multidimensional.

I once told you that we ought to be happy that we have our channeled sources, as long as we can figure out what is helpful and what is not. If there is something they are helpful with, they’re to provide us with material on dreaming—what it is and how to use it. Still, there is more we need to know than to just read channeled material.

The Seth Material is often very helpful in many ways, but it was channeled in the 60s through the early 80s, and he used the knowledge of the mass consciousness up through that time period to give us information about ourselves. By that time, we still had to figure out what kind of trap we’re sitting in—therefore, Seth is only occasionally mentioning that we are controlled by dark forces, although it happens that he does mention it. Bashar is much more recent, as is the RA Material . Bashar, a Social Memory Complex (SMC)[1], or Collective Consciousness, as it’s called as well, consisting of Grays, who claim to be us humans in the future, say like so many other sources that we live in a dream, and that dream is all that there is. If we think in these terms, it’s basically easier to understand our Earthly existence because as Bashar says: “ When you ‘wake up’ to your higher self, the act of waking up in physical reality is in many ways the act of a portion of yourself going back to sleep.”[2]

This statement has a lot of merit to it. How can we distinguish between what is reality and what is dream? So why, then, do we prefer one reality instead of another? After all, once we’ve woken up from a dream, we find ourselves in the position we were in when we fell asleep, and we think we are back to real life.

From what I can see, there are two reasons for this. First, it’s been imprinted in our DNA (or perhaps some strands have been turned off) that we can’t stay connected with the dream world through our Conscious Mind except when our physical bodies are at rest, or very tired. Second, we are led to believe that the 3-D world is real and all other worlds are not. We humans have had that so deeply imprinted in our consciousness that many of us even think that we are the human body. Living in such a delusion that we, as a mass consciousness, truly believe that the physical world is the only valid reality certainly makes it solid, doesn’t it? No one else needs to keep it solid because like Bashar says, we create a new universe every nano-second, more or less. To keep the illusion going, we need to constantly renew the imprint, so every nano-second of our day we create a new universe, which is a copy of the old one, except for the probable changes that happened in the last nano-second. Thus, we get the illusion of movement, and this is the definition of the Multiverse. If you create a new universe when you wake up in the morning and continue creating new ones throughout the day, the one you’re creating at 9:00 p.m. is going to be slightly different from the one you created in the morning because you experienced things during the day. Therefore, your neighbors created a new universe, which means that their Multiverse looks slightly different from yours. Since you were not with your neighbors during the day, you didn’t experience the same things that they did. Even if you would have been with them every second of the day, you interpret every change in the Multiverse your own way, although you and the neighbors were both there. Hence, your Multiverses would still be slightly different. The bottom line is that we are so sure that the 3-D version of the universe is real that we recreate it every moment of our lives in order to prove to ourselves that it is real. If you stopped creating it, it would cease to exist for you.

The dream state (Theta State, c.a. 4-8 c/s) is much more fluid, and because we haven’t been trained that the Theta State is the more accurate reality, we still experience it as non-linear, and as long as we are not interfering with what is happening there, it has its own life. Still, as I mentioned earlier, the Theta State sorts out probabilities as one of its task, and your next day in 3-D after a night’s dreaming will happen according to the probability that was chosen in the dream state. The Conscious Mind was part of creating the probabilities, but because of the illusion of disconnection between what we consider the waking world and the dream world, we do not remember what happened in the dream state. We may wake up in the morning and remember parts of the last dream, or if we’re lucky, we remember most of the last dream, but if we don’t tell anybody or write it down, the Conscious Mind will forget it because the two minds are not connected.

How to Prepare Yourself and Your Environment for Conscious Dreaming


Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world for Conscious Dreaming—or at least, most of us don’t. I am aware that most of us need to go to work and perhaps even work long hours—therefore, our days are scheduled. It’s not like we can take naps whenever we want to and eat whenever we want to either. However, let me start by creating the perfect setup for the best results for Conscious Dreaming, and let’s begin with eating habits. You may notice, as I go on here, that it’s quite hard for you to be able to follow these guidelines, and it may discourage you, but don’t let it. After I’m done, I’m going to adjust it so that it can fit everybody, regardless of how busy our lives are. I still need to write the ideal scene because there probably are some people who can accomplish at least the majority of the criteria, and they need to know what to do. In addition, we are all in a process of change, so before we know, we may be in a beneficial situation that supports this ideal scene. All we can do is our best. It will work out.

The majority of people have scheduled jobs, whether it’s dayshift or nightshift, so we probably eat breakfast, rush to work, and maybe have a snack and then a complete lunch. Another snack in the afternoon will hold us until dinner. For some people, that will suffice—whereas, others have a last snack before bedtime. Then we sleep between 6-8 hours and a new day begins. If we don’t get enough sleep during the week, we try to catch up during the weekend, and we may sleep up to 10-12 hours each day.

We talked about food and diets in a previous chapter, but we need to touch on it here as well. The above kind of schedule is very unhealthy. The ideal is to skip heavy meals and instead eat less and snack during the day as necessary. The most important is not whether we are vegetarians, vegans, or meat eaters, but more of how we eat and where the food comes from, as we discussed earlier. Therefore, we need to make sure we eat small meals and don’t overwhelm the system in such a way that we feel unnaturally full and out of energy. Once we stop old, bad habits and start applying these new principles, our bodies will automatically feel so much better.

A last thing well worth mentioning when it comes to creating a healthy body is the importance of some substances. The body needs Vitamin D to function properly, as well as magnesia and iodine. In the wintertime when you’re not out in the sun, make sure to get some extra Vitamin D3. If you lack any of these three items, your body is not going to work properly and you can get quite ill.

Then we come to sleep cycles. Seth mentions that letting the body lying in a horizontal position without being active for 8 hours or more is not good for the muscles. It’s much better to sleep a few hours, then get up and do something, even if it’s in the middle of the night, and have a light snack. After that, back into bed again. All together, the body needs around 6-8 hours of sleep, but in segments of let’s say two periods of 3-3 ½ hours each. This will benefit our health—it will also make it easier for us to remember our dreams.

Now, as I said—this is the ideal in a perfect world. However, with all the toxins in our bodies and our lifestyles in general, we need more sleep than is normal for the bod to extract those toxins during sleep. Therefore, we may actually need 8-9 hours (for many people) to feel fairly rested. Therefore, it’s become a vicious cycle of sorts.

Now, I’m going to suggest one more thing that may not be possible for everybody to do—nevertheless, it is extremely helpful. Set the alarm for approximately three hours after you go to bed (if you normally fall asleep fairly quickly), and when you wake up to the alarm, immediately write down 5-6 words that summarize what you remember from your dream at the wake-up stage. Then get out of bed, eat a snack and do something that only takes a moment or two. Go back to bed and set the alarm for another three hours ahead. Repeat the cycle, and go for another 2 ½ hours of sleep or so. If you are in a position of being able to do this, you will notice after a few weeks’ repetition that you will have an easier and easier time remembering your dreams. Not only that, but when you wake yourself up in the middle of REM sleep, you are also in your deepest dream state for the night, and this is the only way to remember those deep, significant dreams. Sooner or later, we may all want to do this experiment—at least for some time—and perhaps delegate them to weekends when we are off work.

Another thing to consider is the early morning hours. This time, just before the dawn, is highly creative hours for a human being, and unfortunately, these are the hours when most people sleep. It would be beneficial (and I mention it here for those who are interested) to somehow be able to use these hours being awake and do something creative. When I wrote the WPP (2011-2013) as well as now when I am writing this book, I have done approximately 90% of my research and writing early in the morning (2:00 a.m.-6:00 a.m.). I started doing this out of necessity because I have a regular 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. job, and the evenings after work I always spend with family. The only chance for me to write is, therefore, in the very early morning. In the beginning, I thought that it was a sacrifice I had to make, but I quickly noticed that during these hours I am 2-3 times more creative than when I write during the day (which sometimes happens on the weekend). People may ask themselves why this is, and I’m sure there are many reasons for it, but the main reason is the absolute silence. Not only my own family is asleep, but so is the neighborhood. Most people are in the astral, minding their own business there, and leaving a lot of free energy for me to use. Thus, I can easily get into a higher state of consciousness without feeling other people’s thoughts coming in as distractions. Hence, I get a lot more done, and the result of my writing is much better. Now I don’t want to change my schedule even if I had the chance to. This is just something to consider, as I know I’m not the only one feeling this way. I know other authors who feel the same and have a somewhat similar schedule. Others get inspired by the idea and want to test it.

The next consideration is, how do we decorate our bedroom, and is it important? Yes, it is! In fact, it can be the main thing that determines whether you will succeed in your Conscious Dreaming exercises or not. The number one most important thing to remember: NO ELECTRONICS IN THE BEDROOM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! Any electronics will interfere with your own electromagnetic field and will halt, and may even stop, your evolvement in general. This is a concern even when we’re awake and spend so much time on computers, cell phones, and are subjected to other electronic devices, but it’s even more important when we sleep. Therefore, if you need an alarm clock, buy an old-fashioned one that you need to wind up, and throw your electronic clock in the garbage. This is imperative even if you are not at all interested in practicing Conscious Dreaming. This also applies to heating blankets, so make an extra round through the room to make sure there are no hidden electronics placed somewhere that you normally don’t think of.

Next is how you decorate your bedroom. Make sure it is aesthetically set up—perhaps with some pretty, aromatic flowers that you love (which will also help oxygenize your space), and nice pictures or paintings on the walls. In addition, consider having the walls painted in a light color or high vibration—i.e. a color that makes you feel good. All in all, decorate your bedroom so that you feel you can’t wait to enter it. The bedroom is your sanctuary and the most important room in your house or your apartment. Finally, put a notepad and a pen on your bedside table.

Step #1: Learn How to Recall Your Dreams


Remember that recalling dreams is not meant to be a chore, but something fun and interesting that you can do every night without having it interfere with your sleep cycle, and if so—minimally.

There are three major steps in the process of becoming a Conscious Dreamer:

1.     Learn How to Recall Your Dreams.

2.    Learn How to Be Aware That You’re Dreaming.

3.    Learn How to Consciously Interact with Your Dreams (become a Conscious Dreamer).

First, a little background is necessary. In the ancient past, shamans were experts in contacting the dream state, which they knew was a part of The Other World—the Goddess Universe (yes, they knew that the universe is feminine in nature, and the early shamans were always women). This has since then, in a watered-down form, been transferred down through the generations and used particularly by psychics over the millennia—some of them hired by the Kings and Queens of the world to predict the future for the Royal Families, while they despised psychics in public and often hunted them down. They were basically afraid of them—especially if they were women because they still knew back then that women, in general, have more psychic powers than men have. These days, we say that women are more intuitive than men, but it’s the same thing. We all know about the Catholic witch-hunts in the Dark Ages, where the vast majority of witches who were burned at the stake were women. The Church has always been afraid of women.

It was not until in the 1970s that Conscious Dreaming was scientifically verified (or Lucid Dreaming, as it was called then—a term that’s still used sometimes) and linked to REM. At least since then, but evidently earlier than that, the military has been involved in dreaming research. They wanted the dreamer to communicate with the real world from dreamscape by learning how to control their REM[3] The Military Industrial Complex (MIC) wanted to know how it could use dreaming in warfare and in finding out what the enemy was up to because it knew that people had Out of Body Experiences (OOBE) while they were dreaming. This was also when quite a few OT III[4] Scientologists started working with the CIA, showing the Letter Agency how to Remote View. Famous OT III Scientologists who joined the CIA were Ingo Swann[5] and Hal Puthoff[6]. Remote Viewing is basically the same thing as entering Theta State consciously by leaving your body at will and going to other places. This was particularly useful for the military when they wanted to spy on the Soviets during the Cold War, although the Soviets had sophisticated Remote Viewers (RVs) as well. Other things Remote Viewing (RV) has been used for is to explore the moon (Ingo Swann[7]), but also other places in space, I’m sure, that the public has never been told about.

Now, let us start from the beginning. Hopefully, you now have your bedroom decorated the way you want it, a notepad and a working pen on the bedside table, and no electronics in the room! Depending on your schedule and how your life is set up, your conditions may differ slightly. To make it easy in the beginning, let’s start with setting the alarm right in the middle of your sleep cycle. Let’s say if you sleep 8 hours, set the alarm for 4 hours after you go to bed. People normally start dreaming 30-90 minutes after they go to sleep, but I doubt you want to break your sleeping hours into 2 hours sequences and then force yourself to wake up—our sleep is much too precious for that. Then write a title at the top of the notepad: “Step #1: Remembering my Dreams.” When the alarm goes off, train yourself to immediately recall what you were dreaming about, turn off the alarm as fast as you can, and write down your dream on the notepad. End it with the date and time you woke up. How much of your dreams are you supposed to write down? If you are lucky and recall most of the dream, it may take a while to write it all down, and by then you are fully awake, unable to go back to sleep. This is of course is not what we want. Some, such as the Pleiadians, say that all you need to write down is 3-6 words, while others say at least a few sentences or paragraphs. I would say that you learn with time how much you need to write down. I suggest you start with anything from a couple of sentences to a paragraph. Normally, the remainder of the dream comes back to mind once you’ve read the note in the morning or the next day. I would also suggest you start this practice the night before you’re off work, so that if it makes you unusually tired to do it this way, you’ll have time to find a better setup and can hopefully take a nap or two the day after in order to catch up.

Once you’ve written the partial dream down, have a snack and go to the restroom. Then go back to sleep again after setting the alarm to the time when you normally get up in the morning (this routine is probably nothing new to many people—more people than we think have tried this sometime in their life). When the alarm goes off the last time, repeat the steps from the first time—i.e. turn off the alarm, think intensely about the dream, and write down what you remember in about one paragraph.

When you have time, go through your notes and start with your first dream. Do you remember it by reading your notes? Does the dream come back to you? Often, more and more of the dream comes back the more you think about it. Work on recalling as much as you can, including the feelings you had when you were dreaming. What did you see? Who was present? Did you know them? What did you hear? Any particular smells? Any weight in the dream? Anything you can recall is useful. Once you’re done with your first dream, then go to the next and repeat the same recall pattern. Then leave it at that for the day.

What about if you can’t recall any dream when you wake up to the first alarm, or the second? No big deal—it will happen to many people. Just repeat the same pattern at least a couple more nights to see if you start remembering. If you still wake up every time with no dreams in mind, you probably need to change the alarm to go off at another time. Start with setting it an hour earlier—i.e. three hours after you go to sleep, and then set the next alarm to the time when you usually get up and see how that goes. If it still doesn’t do the trick after a night or two, play around with it some more because, eventually, you will hit the perfect time when you wake up from a dream.

Another thing that can happen is that you wake up before the alarm goes off. Then it’s easier to forget that you were supposed to remember something, and the dream you may have had disappears before you get a chance to catch it. Or, you simply wake up in between dreams and don’t recall anything. Therefore, let’s say you wake up ½ hour before the first alarm, do your best to immediately recall any dream you woke up from and write it down. Remember to write the date and what time of the night it is. It will help you when you go back perhaps months later in your notes because you may want to know when you dreamed what, and the time of the night will help you figure out when your dreams are most intense.

Once you develop a habit of doing this and it works for you, you may think it’s interesting and fun (or you’ll think it’s boring—both could happen, of course), but at the same time, you need a break from this every now and then so you can wake up naturally in the middle of the night without an alarm, or sleep the whole night, if necessary. Hence, I would suggest that you do this training every night the first 3-4 nights and then give yourself a couple of night’s uninterrupted sleep, and then start all over again. Once you’re getting skilled at writing down your dreams, you can basically decide for yourself when you want to train and not.

I haven’t mentioned anything about interpreting your dreams, and that’s just because it’s not part of this particular training. However, it doesn’t hurt to add that to it as well, but only if you want to—it’s not required for this particular training, and I will not go into dream interpretation here. There are good books on it for those who are interested, and I’m sure you can find good articles on the Internet too.

When you have quite a few pages of partial dreams written down in your notepad, go back to the earliest ones to see if you still remember them when you read your notes. Then take dreams at random in your notes to see if you remember those as well. If you still remember them, it’s excellent! If you don’t, or you only remember a few, you may want to start writing down more details about your dreams from thereon. Then, after a couple of weeks, go back again to where you started adding more text to see if you remember them better now. If not, you may want to add a little more. At one point, you should be able to find out exactly how much you need to write down to remember the dreams, even after days, weeks, or months have gone by.

Continue with this part of the training for a month or two before you continue with the next step, “Being Aware That You’re Dreaming.” You need to be skilled first in remembering your dreams, and you also need to go back and forth in your notepad every now and then—at least 3-4 days a week to make sure you still recall at least most of the dreams you’ve written down. I want to stress here, however, that it’s not necessary to remember the whole dreams in order to succeed with this. What is important is to be able to let your conscious mind connect with your subconscious mind easily by being able to bring up the subconscious to the conscious mind at will, which you do when you go back in your notes and review what you’ve written down. When we continue with the next step, we are basically going to do the opposite—letting the conscious mind be aware that it’s present in the subconscious mind.

Last, before we go on with the next step, I want to mention another way of remembering your dreams, which you can apply if you think that’s easier, or you can, of course, do both. When you wake up, instead of instantly writing down the dream, you can speak it aloud (if you sleep alone, that is, or I’m sure you’ll wake your partner up). This way, your dream, which exists in your subconscious mind, automatically is transferred up to the conscious mind, exactly as it should in this experiment. Then, you might have an easier time writing it down and don’t have the stress of trying to get the most important parts down before the dream fades away from your memory.

Step #2: Learn How to Be Aware of That You Are Dreaming


Some people, while doing Step #1, will notice sometime during the process that they are aware that it’s just a dream and are therefore a little bit ahead of the game, which is great. However, most people need some more training before they realize that what they’re experiencing is what we call a dream while the dream is still going on. Besides, even you who were able to realize this at times during Step #1, you probably need to practice some more in order to be skilled at it.

Now, before we start this new step, let’s draw a line beneath the last dream you wrote down and write a new title under it: “Step #2: Being Aware That I’m Dreaming.” Then set everything up the same way you did when doing Step #1 and set the alarm clock at times you’ve figured out gives the best results. Then go to sleep.

This step is a little trickier, and this is the reason why we first need to be skilled in doing Step #1. One good thing to do every night before you fall asleep is to decide and tell yourself something to the effect that “tonight I will remember that I’m dreaming.” This sometimes helps. Then, in the beginning and before you get used to having conscious dreams like this—one or all of the following steps will help you get started:

1.     If you are one of these people who have an easy time going back to sleep after the alarm goes off in the middle of the night, use two alarm clocks. Set one to go off after 3 hours and the other after 8 hours (or whatever schedule you noticed worked in Step #1). When the first alarm goes off, turn it off, and lay your head back on the pillow. Be sure you remember your dream as usual, but instead of writing it down right away, let it linger and realize that your own personality, your conscious mind, is part of the dream, and you are actually just dreaming. Let the dream continue as it may without interrupting it—just observe what is happening, while you’re still half-awake and half-asleep. After a while, hopefully before you go back to sleep, write down your dream in the same fashion as in Step #1, but add, cognition or just cog, which means you were aware that you were dreaming.

2.    The night before you have days off work, sleep a little less so that you are tired when you wake up in the morning. Then go on with your day until you feel the urge to take a nap, or take a nap when you think you will be able to dose off. When you’re taking naps, it’s a little easier to get into the realization that you’re dreaming. However, you may want to state to yourself before you nap that you will be able to understand during the dream that you are dreaming. Then when you’re almost sleeping you will be in a state between being awake and asleep. Here is where you want to take command. As soon as you start dreaming, think to yourself that this is a dream and you are the observer. To check if you’re dreaming (it’s sometimes hard to determine), see if you can find something in the dream where there is something written—a piece of paper, text on someone’s t-shirt, or whatever it may be. Read the text, then look away, and then look at the text again. Does it read the same, or is it different? If it’s different, you’re dreaming.

3.      Sometimes it happens that for some reason we are sleep deprived and we may be watching a movie, or reading a book, and while the show goes on or we are reading from the book, we fall asleep in the middle of it and start dreaming. Although the dream wouldn’t make any sense if it happened in our daily life, it somehow seems to fit perfectly into what we were reading or watching on the TV screen. However, after a while, we realize that this doesn’t make sense and we wake up, sometimes with a jerk. When we come to the stage where it doesn’t make sense, instead of waking ourselves up, we can take advantage of the situation and continue dreaming while thinking “this is just a dream” and again be an observer.

Therefore, try any or all of the above to see if they work for you. If not, the best way to get started is to have two alarm clocks. Make sure you state to yourself every evening just before you fall asleep that you are going to be an observer in the dream, and you will be aware of it. It may not work right away and needs some practice before it actually starts happening, but don’t give up. Eventually, you will find a way that works for you.

When the first alarm clock rings, turn it off, and without being concerned about whether you will go back to sleep or not and, perhaps, not being able to write your dream down, concentrate on your dream and let it continue where you left off and make sure you tell yourself that you’re only dreaming, and then observe the dream. After a while, you will go back to sleep, and perhaps, you will not even remember in the morning that you had this experience, but that’s okay. If this is the only thing that seems to be working for you, just continue doing it until you break through. When you do break through, one of two events will occur:

1.     You suddenly get this huge realization that you’re only dreaming and you get so excited that you’re actually waking up.

2.    You remain calm and will be able to continue observing what is going on. If number 1 is happening, you will need to practice so that you can go into the number 2 state instead. The trick is to be able to have this going for a while. Then, tell yourself that you want to wake up, and you will wake up. Immediately write down the dream and cog, meaning that you knew you were dreaming.

Sometimes it happens that no matter how hard people try, they can’t get into the state where they realize it’s a dream. If so, more practice needs to be done in Step #1. I would suggest that if this is the case, just continue with Step #1 until you have your realization of being in a dream is happening to you there, and you never need to go to Step #2. Don’t worry if this takes a while—normally and eventually, you’ll be able to come to the realization.

If you think this takes too long and you just want to give up, just go back to using one alarm clock and set it on the time when you usually get up, and just write down your dreams whenever they occur. If you choose to eventually do this, it will of course take longer before you reach the goal, but on the other hand, there is no time limit. Hopefully, you will not get to the point where you want to give up. For many people, this whole practice is not too hard to accomplish.

Step #3: Learn How to Consciously Interact with Your Dreams (Become a Conscious Dreamer)


This step is quite similar to Step #2. You are now somewhat familiar with being consciously in your dream and observing what is going on. I know that in Step #2, some of the readers already started interacting with their dreams, and that is perfectly fine. I never told people to interact because I wanted to let everybody just get the feeling for being present in the dream and observe what is going on. Not everybody has experienced this before.

Therefore, the setup again will be the same as before with two alarm clocks. When the first one goes off, turn it off, and slowly go back to half dream state and half-waking state. When you think that you are the observer, start interacting with the dream. Go and talk to one of the characters—perhaps someone you don’t know and ask them where you’ve met before. “Are you from another lifetime?” “Are you an old, lost friend?” Try to remember what the reply is. Watch the plot in the dream (if there is one) and participate on a conscious level. Be one of the characters. Have fun. If the dream is non-linear and doesn’t make any sense at all, flow with it and do something out of the ordinary that fits into the dream. If you want to, you can change the dream to your liking. When you get the chance, maybe you want to go visit the stars. Tell yourself that now you want to take advantage of what you have learned in the dream state earlier and leave the Grid and the Quarantine behind and explore space and different worlds out there, although you intend to return to your body, fully conscious of what you have experienced.

When you’re this advanced and can move around in your dream, you usually have no problems waking up at will. You tell yourself that now the dream is over for this time, and you are going to wake up and remember it all. Therefore, you open your eyes and start writing down as much as you need from your dream to remember it the day after. Then you can either go to the restroom or have a snack and then go back to sleep again.

Usually you get the feel for whether you need to keep having two alarm clocks or not. When you get to a certain point, you notice that when you start dreaming sometime during the night, your conscious mind is there, ready to participate. You live your dream and then you wake up whenever you think that you’re done—no clock needed! However, never be disappointed if you can’t interact with every single dream you have—that’s normally not possible—at least not until we get skilled. Just go with the flow and when you think that you can interact, do it. Practice and you will be able to do it more and more often, and you will notice that your interaction becomes more and more advanced, and suddenly you find yourself controlling the entire dream.

Be careful to treat the dream participants with respect because you are most probably also in someone else’s dream where you want to be treated well—remember that the dream world is more real, in fact, than the world you live in while awake, and it affects more people and events than the everyday life does.

Also, in the beginning, it may happen that you get so excited finding out all these things you can do while you’re asleep that you accidentally wake up just because of your excitement and you need to start all over again. This is common, and when it happens, decide to be calmer next time, as usual, knowing that if you’re not, you’re going to wake up again. What you can do, practically while in the dream, is to first ground yourself. Until you are comfortable with being conscious in your dream, just be the spectator—sit in a corner or away from the dream and touch the ground or watch your fingers while you’re moving them. This will ground you into the dream. Remember that it’s not just the dream body, or the light-body—you are the whole dream world!

The next thing to practice once you think that you are getting quite skilled at interacting with your dreams is to consciously plan your next day while in dreamscape. Recall what you’re doing in the waking world during the day and create something exciting for the day to come. Then see if it happens (or something similar enough). When you start being able to affect your day after from Dreamland, make your predictions more advanced—for example, plan for a whole week or decide to heal a relationship that went bad. However, we need to be careful so we don’t interfere with other people’s free will. It’s okay to heal relationships as long as you are healing them from your end, but let the other people do it from their end. Usually, when you are healing your own part in those relationships, the other people automatically are beginning to work on theirs, or it just magically resolves all together.

Another thing you can do is to help someone to self-help. Let’s say there is a person whom you see suffering for one reason or another, and you want to assist, although you don’t know what to do. You have exhausted all your options in the everyday life without interfering with that other person’s free will, and still he or she doesn’t know how to come to terms with the situation. I mentioned something similar in the WPP and suggested that before you go to sleep, you decide that during the night you and the other person are going to work on this problem and come to a solution. This advice was given without having gone into Conscious Dreaming yet and was therefore fully valid. The reader who followed the advice would be working on it in dream state, but would probably not remember upon awakening. I told the reader at that time that it doesn’t matter if you remember or not—it still happened! I also said that it could take a few nights to handle the situation, so it is advisable to repeat setting the goal for the night a few evenings in a row to make sure the situation is taken care of.

I am giving the same advice now. Just before you fall asleep, set a goal for the night, and tell yourself that you are going to work with this person in dream state in order to help resolve the situation—however, this time you are going to be aware of it and in your dream consciously interact with this person. You will notice that he or she will be more capable of coming up with solutions in a dream state than when awake because the Conscious Mind is setting up too many barriers for itself, trying to justify why the situation occurred in the first place. The Conscious Mind has learned to become proud and stubborn and usually doesn’t want to be wrong. Therefore, we can trick the Conscious Mind in our dream state into thinking that it was the Conscious Mind coming up with the solution. Sounds funny, right? However, doesn’t it sound just like the Ego? You have unlimited potentials in your dream state and once you’re an expert in participating in your dreams, you can shape your 3-D life more or less however you want. Still, this doesn’t mean you won’t run into obstacles in the 3-D world because you will. By operating from your dream state to plan your 3-D day, you take the game to a whole new level, but you also meet new barriers that you haven’t previously encountered, and when this happens, know that you have actually raised your vibration. Although you can’t leave 3-D reality just by controlling your dream state because there are other factors involved, such as disagreeing with the negative and controlling forces, you can accomplish a lot on your journey toward a Splitting of the Worlds just by managing Conscious Dreaming.

You are in your Avatar when you are dreaming—therefore, you can also nano-travel in your dream. All you need to do is to think yourself somewhere and you’ll be there. Everything in the universe is just a thought away. When you realize this and are able to do this in dreamscape, you will understand exactly what I was talking about in my papers when I said that star beings nano-travel between stars—they don’t use 3-D spaceships, unless they are on a 3-D level of consciousness.

There are a lot of other things you can do in dreamscape as well. For example, if you want to change dreamscape and have another dream, one common technique is to spin around in your dream, and when you get too excited and believe you are in danger of waking up, you can rub your hands together—this is something that has proven to be useful[8]. You can also train yourself to, hopefully, shed some of your phobias—for example, if you’re afraid of heights, you can climb a mountain in your dream, knowing that the worst thing that could happen is that you fall. In 3-D life, you would fall to your death, but the worst thing that would happen in your dream would be that you wake up.

Another thing that has been useful is healing of ailments of different kinds. Visualization in dream state of the body part that’s injured or sick and the intention to heal it in the dream has shown to be quite effective at times. I am not trying to practice medicine without a license—I am merely relaying to the reader what has been working for some people in tests. When you visualize that your body part is being healed, regardless of how it is done in the dream, your immune system starts working on it in 3-D, and the dreamer has experienced a great relief from his or her injury/ illness and, at times, even had it cured! Therefore, this is something you can play around with when you get to this point.

In Conscious Dreaming, you can stay in your mind and basically create your own Avatars, whom you send to nano-travel in the dream, following your directions from a visualized position above the dream. Thus, you can imitate how it is when your Oversoul is sending out Avatars on missions everywhere in the universe—you who read this book is one of them. I strongly advise the reader to do this with Conscious Dreaming because it’s something you will be training yourself to do in the waking state later. Besides, it’s a whole lot of fun!

Here is another very fun practice! If you have a partner, a friend, or somebody you know well, whom you can practice Conscious Dreaming with, you can suggest that the next night you do something together called Mutual Dreaming. Just as the term indicates, it means that the two of you decide to meet in a dream state. Understanding how the Subconscious Mind works, it shouldn’t matter whether the two of you go to sleep at the same time or not as long as you both are determined to meet in the dream. Even if you go to bed at 9:00 p.m. and your partner doesn’t go to bed until 11:30 p.m., time is either simultaneous or different in dreamscape, so you will meet the other person even if he or she hasn’t gone to bed yet. However, just for simplicity, try to go to bed at approximately the same time, even if you live at different locations, and have fun. Then, the day after, compare your dreams. If only one of you remembers it, tell some of it to the other to see if he or she starts remembering, and if so, let the other person fill in. Otherwise, just tell the whole dream from your perspective.

However, what can you do in a dream? In other words, what is morally and ethically appropriate? For example, can you have sex in a dream? It’s, of course, your own judgment that will decide that, but from a moral perspective, are you married? If so, what kind of agreements do you have with your partner in 3-D? Would it hurt your spouse if you told him or her? Therefore, I wouldn’t do it in a Conscious Dream because that means you need to withhold the incident from your spouse, and withholds are not healthy for the relationship. The same thing applies if it’s the other way around—if you are single and you have sex with your neighbor’s wife in your dream, it’s still not a moral thing to do. You may think that she is not a Conscious Dreamer and will not remember the dream, and even if she does, she will think it’s only a dream. Nevertheless, it’s still not morally correct. You did something to her in the dream state that she might never have done with you in 3-D—therefore, I would suggest against it. Now, how about if you have sex with a stranger in your dream—a stranger who is not married, or maybe you want to have sex with someone you have a crush on, yet haven’t had sex with? In the latter example, I would still suggest against it (I know, I’m hopeless!) because, obviously, you haven’t had sex with this person in 3-D for a reason—the other person may not be ready, or he or she might not want to ever go that far. Thus, having sex in dreamscape would be manipulative and could affect that person’s decision in 3-D, having no clue that it’s because of what you did in your dream (I am aware that what I just said may probably plant some immoral ideas in some people’s minds, unfortunately ). Therefore, what about this stranger? OK, I would say that if both of you seem okay with it in the dream, go for it. Remember, all these suggestions are just my own views on this, and you need to follow your own moral and ethical codes. Just remember that your dreams are powerful and often affect your 3-D life, so have fun, but also be careful with what you’re doing in the dream state. Even the stranger you had sex with could somehow get into your life at a later time, or maybe not, but you never know. A much safer and better idea is to meet with a partner in 3-D and discuss meeting in dream state and having sex there if both of you agree. This would be a wonderful metaphysical experience to add to your 3-D experiences!

Yes, there are a lot of fun things we can do with Conscious Dreaming, and I want you to have as many wonderful experiences as possible. It’s actually the best practice we can get to prepare ourselves to become truly multidimensional because once we master the Dream World, we have a much easier time learning how to master 3-D and how to have multidimensional experiences here as well.

Shamans—or those who deserve calling themselves shamans—can do all this that we have been discussing in this chapter, with one addition—they can do it while they are awake! Shamans have been on this planet for millions of years—some of them have been humans and others have been extraterrestrials. Of course, shamanism was brought down to Earth from the stars, and the first shamans were females because they were the ones who had this shamanic power. Men had (and have) it, too, but not to the same extent—our genetic setup is not the same as that of a female. Women have more Fire than men do—therefore, women have an easier time connecting with the multidimensional existence, which basically is what I’ve been calling the 96%, the KHAA, the VOID, the Spirit Universe, or the Goddess Universe. There have been males as well who have been real shamans, but they are fewer. This doesn’t mean that men can’t become multidimensional—it means that females have the real power to connect with their multidimensional selves. Nevertheless, how can we men become multidimensional? Well, don’t be concerned because there is a way, and what is needed is acceptance of a certain fact—something that requires a change in belief systems—again! I prepared the reader for this in “The Second Level of Learning,” and soon it’s going to come to fruition. We males need to bring up the feminine side of ourselves! I’m going to discuss this as a part of the next chapter, but I want you to already get a feel for this. What does it mean? Does it mean that we males are all of a sudden going to become very feminine in our appearance, dressing and acting as females? No, of course not. All men, whether they want to admit it or not, have a feminine side to them, just as women have a male side to themselves. What we men need to do is to find the feminine side inside ourselves and develop that energy to balance the dominant male energy and the character that we usually picture ourselves with. There are many males out there who know exactly what I’m taking about right now, and they have already developed a lot of this in themselves, and the world around them can’t tell the difference, except maybe one—these men are more compassionate, are better listeners, and are more willing to express emotions than those who hang on to a polarized male dominant personality.

Now, have fun developing your Conscious Dreaming skills! I won’t add any exercises at the end of this chapter because the exercises are already well explained in the chapter itself. Instead, we’ll go directly to the next section, which will teach us to go inside ourselves, just like we did when in dream state. However, this time, inspired by shamans, we are going to do it while we are awake.

[1] The terms Social Memory Complex and Collective Consciousness refer to future societies where an intelligent race is working similar to a “beehive” society, where they say they are serving the One Creator (God) and have reached a stage in their development where the species think and act as a collective. Most channeled entities, Seth exempted, are Social Memory Complexes (SMC). They claim they are working on becoming One with the Creator and merge with “Him”. Very rarely are the channeled entities talking about the Creator as a Divine Feminine.

[4] OT III means Operating Thetan Level III in Scientology (founded by L. Ron Hubbard in 1952). An OT III Completion of the “old kind” (when the Church of Scientology was taken over in a coup in 1982, almost everything that was working was altered by the new management) could easily bi-locate in his or her mind and instantly think himself or herself to another place in space/time to see what was going on there. Scientology never called this Remote Viewing (and still doesn’t), but instead called it “Thetan Operating Exterior to the Body”, where Thetan is the Scientology term for soul.
