My meditation is of the Tibetian variety. It starts with falling asleep focused on a 'seed'. At one point, one 'wakes' during sleep...becomes 'aware' and is simply a hanging ball of luminous awareness/light. This is only one state in a progression, and while there is no reflection or feeling or even sense of self at the time, upon 'waking' it brings a heightened awareness of being 'in the now'.

Harlan, can you tell more?
Do you visualize a white A at your solar plexus?
Also what does "seed" mean (in this context)?

A seed can be anything, really. I have found the sanskrit letter for space (white A) to be personally significant...but any idea or image can be reduced to a seed. The seed acts as a tight focus for entry...like knocking on a door.

I'm new to this, but from the little experience I have in this I would suggest that you not pursue dream yoga without a firm foundation...perhaps in normal meditation.

I have an interest in tibetan dream yoga because I just have to do something before sleep. I am always thinking of something before sleep. So I wanted to spend that time better. Since it isn`t considered a good thing to fall asleep during most meditations I was searching for something that could be done that way - tibetan dream yoga.

So far I only tried it for a litlle while, my dreams became more vivid and it was easier to remember them during those few days.
Why do you suggest that I not pursue it?

Because it is meant to be part of a larger spiritual path.
