When you first start out in the world of shifting, it can be a little overwhelming, especially with all of the information and different methods floating around in various communities.

If you’ve been around the shifting community for a while, you’ve probably heard of the starfish position, which is required for the Raven method of shifting realities.

So, what’s the starfish position, and how you can use it to shift to your desired reality?

Let’s dive right in.

What is the Starfish Position for Shifting?

So, the starfish position is where you lie down and position your arms and legs exactly like a star.

Though you are not required to lie with your arms and legs like a star, you must ensure that your limbs do not touch! Your arms can even be raised above your head.

Also, you can’t move after or during your method while being in a starfish position.

Essentially, shifting disconnects you from this reality. Moving would hinder this process because your goal is to separate your subconscious from this reality.

Consider shifting as if you were trying to light a candle; moving the lighter away from the wick of the candle will not cause it to light. You must take your time.

That is why it is critical to be completely comfortable before proceeding with shifting! Here’s how to meditate for shifting realities.

So… Why the Starfish Position and not Something Else?

As uncomfortable as it may be, the starfish position is simply better for disconnecting.

Laying on your back with your limbs apart is far more effective than lying on your side or stomach.

For me, the starfish position is the closest I can get to that floating or meditation state that I strive for. It significantly reduces your contact with the physical aspects of your Current Reality.

As someone who enjoys but rarely has dreams, I used the Raven method the first time I tried shifting (I fell asleep- lol) and had 3+ dreams that night.

I believe it simply helps our minds in becoming less aware of the CR we’re stuck in for the majority of the day because you can’t feel your current body touching.

But, as with everything in life, it’s all trial and error.

You have to give it a try to see if it’s working for you.

How to Make the Starfish Position More Comfortable?

Many people that try shifting in the starfish position have trouble staying in it for too long.

You might lose feeling in your legs and just have a strong desire to move them, which can be frustrating, especially when you are close to shifting. Does anyone else experience this?

There are a few ways you can make the starfish position more comfortable for you:

  1. You can try raising your hands above your head to speed up sleep paralysis faster.
  2. You can raise your legs and help your spine by placing a pillow under them.
  3. You can drink chamomile tea. (this can help you relax)
  4. You can relax your body by meditating before bed!

If you try all of these things and you still find yourself feeling uncomfortable, you can always try a different shifting method.

Remember, methods are just tools that can help us shift to our desired reality; they are not required in any way.
