You are relaxed, but not too relaxed, dressed comfortably, and in a space that is quiet, safe, and conducive to dreamwalking. Prior to this point, you have answered the three main questions that go along with any dreamwalk: who you are dreamwalking to, why you are dreamwalking, and what landscape you plan to use. Now all you have to do is get started.

Although most people will most certainly work from their beds, you may want to consider sitting in a chair for this method of dreamwalking. A straight-backed chair that has enough padding to be comfortable is ideal. Sit with your back straight, head erect and facing forward, feet flat on the ground, and your hands held palms-down on the tops of your legs. This is called the Egyptian position, and if you can call to mind the many images of pharaohs sitting oh-so-properly upon their thrones, you'll have an idea of why. I can't say that I prefer this position for this method of dreamwalking, although I have used it with success. Perhaps the greatest benefit of this position comes to those who have trouble staying awake during their journeys through the borderlands of sleep. Sitting upright in the chair has the added benefit of waking you up if your head drops forward in sleep.

Although there is some danger of falling asleep, I prefer to lay down, even when dreamwalking from the hypnagogic state. If you have set your dreaming chamber up in some room other than your bedroom, consider investing in a futon mattress or at least a yoga mat to stretch out on the floor. Comfort is important, although with this technique you don't want to get so comfortable that you simply fall asleep. Your body temperature will drop as you slip into the dreamstate, so consider covering yourself with a blanket or at the very least keeping a blanket handy. One of the benefits of using the hypnagogic state to dreamwalk is that you can pull yourself out of things fairly easily, adjust your physical surroundings, and then return almost immediately to the dreamspace.
