Taking Control of Your Meditation in the Hypnogogic State
As newbie meditators, most of us learn to observe and interpret the colors, symbols and images swirling about in our heads.

It is in the hypnogogic state, the one between wakefulness and sleep that your power to control your meditations is fully realized.
While in the hypnogogic state, many experiences can be explored. You may decide to solve a problem, return to a pleasant place from the past or follow a fantasy.

Those who have mastered this state quickly fill up their dream journals with meditative and nocturnal wanderings.
