I had leveraged a new technique which serves as a portal, and let the new scene manifest without any direction on my part. I found myself hovering over my body. The scene was not consistent with the present as I was sleeping the opposite way on the couch
I can relate to this. I have found for myself,in most instances, that the similarity to my waking environment is directly related to the intensity,clarity and stability of my 'dream body'.
If there is a close match it is often weak visually and my dream body actions can even be like that of a drunk. The clarity and environment are subject to improvement and change as the 'distance' increases.On certain instances I have sat up/pulled out into a matching environment only to slam into a force, like a solid glass wall. (almost painful) This has resulted in waking.
On the other end of things:Some of my conclusions to OBEs result from an attempt to change environments by jumping up through a ceiling;only to be 'caught' instead by my body. One of the most interesting times,I was caught in a vortex-mini tornado that spun me around the exact likeness of my bedroom as if my body was sucking me in.
My point is that I personally find close matches to the physical to be volitile. This could be just some mental barrier as well.I am still exploring this,but there seems to be a huge random component from the 'self's' perspective. For me,stability,clarity and novel content increase with the dissimilarity of the physical. I almost prefer to OBE from a dream in progress,which has alot of overlap with Lucid Dreams. ( I believe the difference is only in the timing.)
