  1. Hello again. Long time no see. I write to communicate you that my experiments with opening the portal to Equestria have finally turned out to be successful, multiple times already! So I decided to write a detailed report from these experiments in a couple of subsequent posts in this thread, so that you could follow my footsteps and go to Equestria on your own too The ingredients To begin with, here are the techniques I combined to make it possible: As I once wrote in this post, Equestria is not a physical place one could physically go to – it's a "mental space", created by collective imagination of the creators of the show and people watching it. So the only way to get there is on the mental plane. And that's where I decided to create my portal. Next, since I am a long-time lucid dreamer, I decided to use my dreams for my advantage, since my skills of controlling my dreams are pretty developed. I already did stuff like flying, walking through walls, shape-shifting, gender-bending, throwing fireballs around, or controlling the weather, so I thought that these skills may help me with this goal. Third, I needed to employ the Magic of Friendship ;> So after skimming through the tulpa thread, I decided to summon Twilight Sparkle into my mindscape and ask her for some help with this ordeal. I've done that already with great scientists from the past to ask them some questions or channel their knowledge, even with fictional characters, so I thought it might be a good idea to try that with ponies as well After summoning her, I introduced myself, explained what I want to achieve, and in return, I offered her the access to my personal mind palace – a place which I created in my mind to store there everything I know as mental images (a technique I learnt from Sherlock ). When she entered my mind palace and saw all those documents and notes with non-pony knowledge I gathered there through years, she was flabbergasted, and she said that she will do whatever she can to help me if I allow her to read through all of that. We agreed upon a "spell" (a special unique phrase) I will be using to summon her and send her away every time I'll need (you know, a failsafe spell – a must when you deal with tulpas, so that they won't take over your body or something ;J ), and she promised to help me and appear in my dreams to awake my consciousness, so that we could both teleport to Equestria. (She said there's a spell Princess Luna showed her which can help us with that.) First few unsuccessful attempts The first few attempts didn't quite go well Although I had some dreams in which I saw ponies on TV screens or paintings (as I do in real life), I didn't meet them "in person" (or should I say "in pony"? ). I also once found myself playing a video game with 3D Rarity running around through corridors in some castle and collecting gemstones. Quite fun to play if you ask me, but it wasn't exactly what I was after. The closest encounter I had was when in one dream I suddenly shrunk into my carpet which then turned into the Everfree Forest, and I think I saw Pinkie Pie jumping around somewhere far away into the woods, but I didn't meet her. After waking up from those dreams, I was summoning Twilight Sparkle again and asking her how it went, and she seemed to be upset too that it doesn't seem to work very well She even tried the Luna spell at me once, connecting to my "third eye" (the place on the forehead where Unicorns have their horns) with a shining "silver cord" of Magic, but it didn't work too. Twilight said that Luna's spell seems to be harder to perform than she thought, and she felt bad that she's been using my mind palace but she couldn't "pay" me back for that Until one lucky night... ;> The first success Skipping to August 24th, 2016 – the first successful attempt. I was walking in my dream, minding my own business, when suddenly I noticed something strange: my surroundings started to look a bit "cartoonish", as if I was in a 3D video game with cel shading. I thought to myself: "Wait a minute... something is not right here...could it be?... that I'm in a... YES! THIS IS A DREAM!" And right away I remembered about my plan, so I started calling Twilight Sparkle as loud as I can. I walked outside the cartoon version of my house, and then I saw her! It was Twilight Sparkle! She was standing right in front of me, about 5 meters, with her wings spread out, and grinning She looked very realistic (well, as much as a cartoon pony can look realistic ) and alive. And I couldn't believe my eyes. She didn't say a word. It wasn't necessary. She was just standing there, staring at me and grinning. And I could tell how much excited and proud she was that our experiment has finally worked. Heck, I was excited as hell too! Still not saying anything, she gave me a sign with her head to come over to her, and encouraging me to sit on her back :q I was a bit surprised and worried if she's strong enough to carry me on her back. I'm rather skinny, but who knows how much weight a pony can bear on its back :q But when she gave me that "Oh come on! Just jump in already!" look, I sat on her back. She spread her wings and the next moment I realized, we've already been in the air Dang! Those Alicorn wings surely are strong! I looked around and I noticed that we're in the sky, surrounded with clouds. Then we flew over a huge rainbow (but not Dash ;J ). And when we flew to the other side of it, the clouds become less thick, so I looked down, and I noticed some beautiful green meadows, a couple of trees here and there, and some little buildings. I asked Twilight if this is Ponyville, and she nodded. Wow! I'm flying over Ponyville, on Twilight Sparkle's back! It's like every Brony's dream come true I've seen little colourful ponies walking around down there, busy with their lives. And their funky village houses. Suddenly I heard some flutter on my side, so I looked there and I saw... Rainbow Dash She was flying side by side with us, and pointing her hoof up, signalling us to fly higher. So we did. I found ourselves in between of some weird cloud formation, which resembled some structures. I realized we're flying through Cloudsdale! I saw some Pegasi flying around, and some rainbow waterfalls. And then we flew through something that looked like a tunnel, or a bridge above our heads. I looked up, and when the "ceiling" ended, I saw a giant wall made of clouds, with some pipes sticking out from it. I realized that this is the Rainbow Factory :q But suddenly I lost my balance. Apparently I leaned too much to my rear and I fell from Twilight's back I was falling down quite fast, observing Cloudsdale becoming smaller and smaller above me, and then I woke up. It took me a while to come to terms with myself and gather my thoughts. I felt excited, and energized YAY! IT FINALLY HAPPENED! I VISITED EQUESTRIA AND MET THE PONIES! To be continued... (in the next post)
  2. So I have started a 2 week trial of a Lucid Dreaming technique commonly referred to as WILD. Lucid Dreaming is when you're dreaming normally, but you know your dreaming and exhibit a certain amount of control over it. I have not had a successful Lucid dream as of me typing this, but that's why I'm trying out WILD for 2 weeks to see how well it works, and also to practice the technique. WILD is an acronym, which stands for Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming. This basically entails keeping your mind slightly awake but restful enough so that your subconscious thinks you are asleep. This is actually an important survival tactic, and the subconscious will actually check if the mind is conscious before it starts to perform a shutdown. The goal here is to get into a dream and remain awake as it's forming. This differs from other techniques where you achieve lucidity after the dream has formed. Here, you should be able to see it forming in front of you. Now that we have that out of the way, onto last night's attempt. TL;DR My Attempt Failed I did make progress however! I did feel my body falling asleep, reached a point where my thoughts stopped making sense, and had brief moments of hypnogogia (a pattern of colours or shapes that some people see before a dream fully forms). However I kept getting pulled out of complete sleep time and time again, either because my position was uncomfortable, or because a pool of saliva was forming on my pillow, and I just had to ignore that because I was supposed to be asleep. Not only that my parents always have the TV up way too damn loud, so eventually I got up. It was actually really hard to move my body. This is evidence that my body was in fact close to a full shut down. I told them to turn it down, and tried again, but alas, I fell asleep then and I was so tired I forgot to actually stay aware. I did look at the clock before this and 3 hours had passed since the start of this attempt. It most certainly did not feel like that at all. This also shows a part of my mind was prepared for sleep. This was most certainly progress, but mistakes were made. But this is why I'm doing this for 2 weeks. I didn't expect a complete success on the first attempt. I'm learning, I haven't done this before. It's a weird new feeling, feeling yourself prepare for sleep like that. I am running on slightly less sleep, due to not getting into deep sleep when I should've, and it's a Monday so that's not excellent. I'll manage, I think. It's not that bad, just feels like I'm maybe an hour short on sleep? Anyways, I'll post tonight's attempt tomorrow. Maybe I'll have more success this time around.
  3. Searched and didn't find any threads about this so I decided to make one myself. I have never tried or found a way to lucid dream during my life so far, but am very curious about it. Haven't tried it mostly because I have this small fear that I would go insane or mentally ruin myself. But have anypony on this forum lucid dreamt before? And if so, what did it feel like and how did things go? And if not, do you know how to lucid dream but just haven't tried it for yourself? Also, what is everyponys opinion on it? If you have any interesting facts or rumors about lucid dreaming then don't hesitate to post it
  4. Just wondering because I want to go to equestria by doing this. I've never lucid dreamed before, but it looks fun.
  5. So I've been into lucid dreaming for a few weeks now, and I've been getting a lot more recently. However, this one is probably the longest (but not weirdest, I might post that one another day) one I've had. Sorry for the boring wall of text; I can't shorten this or it won't make sense. So basically, I was waiting for a tram/streetcar/trolley, or however you say it, at a station with my family and a friend. The train arrived and we got on, however my friend didn't and started running along the platform to get on when it set off. For some reason we weren't the slightest bit concerned and waved goodbye out the window. The train went on to a mountain road, in the middle of a 4-lane highway. The scenery looked amazing, and out of nowhere I just realised I was dreaming. The ride was really nice and smooth, and the scenery was great. The train was going quite fast down the road, and I could feel the speed. Then, I remembered reading on the internet that if you rub your hands together in a lucid dream it starts becoming more vivid. I did this, but nothing was happening except that I could hear voices saying "What are you doing?", "Are you crazy!?" and "Stop!". I had no idea why, but then I could feel myself getting sucked out of the dream. Now I'm lying down, but I don't know whether its on my back or my front. I can't move at all, so I figured I was in sleep paralysis. Basically, by rubbing my hands, I woke myself up prematurely. Now here comes the crazy part: I saw what looked like a huge blue pillar with a yellow star on it in the middle of my room. I thought to myself "I know that in sleep paralysis you can see strange figures, but I didn't know you could see whole static structures!". It looked like some sort of symbol though, because beams of light were coming off it as if it were the baby Jesus. Nothing was happening and I got bored, so I started to wake myself up by shaking my eyes and wiggling my toes to break out of paralysis. I woke up and I found out everything: The pillar and star was actually a picture on my pillow, so I was lying on my side. The beams of light was early morning light shining through the bottom of my curtains. I was probably dreaming about mountains because I went to the Rockies in BC not that long ago, and I went with my friend, too. I cannot explain the train because I have not been on any mode of public transport except for a plane for a long time. Share some of your weird dreams, lucid or not. If it has to do with ponies, even better! I really want to have a pony dream
  6. To anyone brave enough to read this, you have my thanks. I guess there are 2 parts to this odd little story; the first is about work, the second about dreaming (or my failure to do so). So, the work part. It's a night job where I stock groceries and other goods for a dept. store, mostly pop, water and juice. You get a lot fewer people shopping at night, which is part of why it appealed to me. It's not a soul-crushing ordeal (like my last job, that's another story), but it's still a job, and that limits the amount of time I can be home watching ponies. Plus there still are the other workers to deal with, and some of them can be jerks who clearly have never had ponies in their lives. But I had a solution for this. A few days ago, my Rainbow Dash wristband came in the mail! It looks just like this... ...and it's perfect. ("You may have seen these before if you've heard of the 808 Bronies in Hawaii. They were the first to have any," says the seller.) It has her cutie mark on both sides and is sturdy enough that I can wear it anywhere--to bed, in the shower......and even to work! So that's what I did, I wore it to work last night--with short sleeves so everyone could see. It may not seem like a big deal but it is to me because I'm really shy in person and I'm not one to display my interests. But no one really noticed or said anything. Every time the drudgery of sorting 30 different kinds of juice started to get to me, I would look at my wrist and I felt so much better. I think I got a lot more done that night than usual. My Little Pony has already made my life better. I can watch it online, I've got the wrist, a shirt, some blind bag figures, the calendar, and I've got the S1 DVD pre-ordered for December. I've got ponies on the brain these days. But just one thing is missing to make me a real hardcore brony...I've never dreamed about them. I can't dream about the ponies. I've heard of that lucid dreaming stuff you can do and it seems pretty awesome...but I can't do it. I tried several years ago and it never worked out. I sort of tried it again when I took a nap today. Told myself "okay, I'm going to dream about ponies." Did I dream about ponies? Nope. I dreamed about driving a semi-truck and wrecking it on Highway 52, then not being able to reach my grandparents on the phone. No ponies whatsoever. (Unless, heaven forbid, I was transporting ponies.) I wonder what I'm doing wrong... But that's it for my nonsensical blog post. Make of it what you will. If you have willingly dreamed about My Little Pony, please give me some advice!
