Hah, now I feel like I have a better understanding of why I was having such amazing sleeps. A short while ago, about a week, I had 6 or 7 lucid dreams in a row, but I never remember waking up from any of them, almost like they fluently transitioned one to the next. I can recall nearly every detail about them, but still prefer not to tell anybody my experiences. Since then, nearly every night I have had a handful of these dreams and I feel extremely well rested and, for lack of a better word, peaceful.
I can attribute the majority of these changes to meditation. I started meditating every single night and every single day since about 2 years ago. If I ever had the urge to meditate, I simply acted on it, where ever I was. One of the best spots I've found, is in the shower, because of the white noise that helps me focus. The water falling on my head eliminates the distracting thoughts I have. I don't pretend to know what I'm talking about, but if I had to compare it to something, it would be the sound waves you have talked about in the last episodes.
Every time any of this happens, it immediately becomes the best experience of my day. It lightens my mood, and in general, I just have an AWESOME day.
In my belief, another thing that derives from the astral plane, is the sense of deja vu. Recently while playing a new game of mine, everything suddenly clicked into place and I had an extraordinary sense of deja vu from this one picture. I had seen the image before, I recognized it, and I new what was going to happen the rest of that day because of it.
This is probably the longest review I have ever written on Newgrounds, but I thought it would be enlightening to share, not for anybody reading but for myself as well. The author, Jordan, will probably never read this, but it's a fun experience to imagine that he will.
As another little surprising thing, the first time I ever meditated, was to that song. Fireflies. There was just something about it that clicked in me, and I had to try it. Refreshing surprise, thank you.
