Title: shineling’s APs
Post by: shineling on July 07, 2019, 05:04:20
I hope it’s ok if I start my own thread. I have so many APs that it wouldn’t do to start a single thread for each one I want to share.

Well ok, I’m 44 years old this year and I’m finally at the point in my APing where I can AP whenever I want. That’s to say, if I feel like going out I can always get out of my body without problems. This has been about a 25 year journey for me because I started reading about astral projection when I was around 18. It’s so cool to be at this point and be able to explore and experiment.

My best advice on how to do it is to watch yourself falling asleep. The more you do it the more easy it gets. You’ll begin to feel heavy and then misty as the lights slowly dim in your brain. The trick is to keep watching yourself fall asleep. Otherwise, there comes a point where lucidity will just stop and you veer off into the void.

So while you’re watching yourself fall asleep stay aware of the threshold for exiting. At some point you’ll know you are enough asleep to exit. It’s good to be patient and relax instead of forcing it. Forcing it can sometimes be painful and you’ll just end up with a headache.

I do all kinds of things when I AP. Just today I took a nap and had an AP. My bed is right next to a wall so I usually roll out of my body and exit through the wall instead of my front door. It’s easier that way. Once outside I floated above the neighborhood and could see all the houses from about 100 feet in the air. My guide took over then and I started flying down the street faster and faster. It was dusky yet I could see every house and trees in prestine detail. Sometimes I like to do everything myself and choose exactly which direction to go... but sometimes I let the guiding force take me away.
I eventually made it to the city proper and like most of my APs it was a completely new location. Usually my APs start at my house where everything is familiar and things gradually change into new vistas that are completely different. I saw a beautiful grand church approaching as I gently raced toward it. It had arches and towers and steeples and was completely detailed. That’s where the guiding force gently put me down right in front of the big wooden doors. I opened the door and went inside.

The first thing I noticed was the smell. I could smell incense and candles burning. It’s rare for me to see open flame but sure enough the anteroom was full of purple candles and smoke from incense holders. When I looked into the church I could see lots of benches and the inconography was intense. Above were pictures of Jesus and Bhuddha and some Indian gods too I think. They where so detailed and beautiful I thought that this place had to be more than a dream. There’s no way my imagination was this good.

I woke up a little after that with that incense smell still lingering in my nostrils. That’s was just today though. I won’t post all my APs here, just the good ones and the most exciting. Sometimes I learn a big lesson from an AP... I’ll try to share those too.

Thanks for reading and please also share with me your techniques, APs, any advice or whatever...  :-)

Heya!  I'll sticky this one for you.
As long as it's updated, it can stay stickied.  :)

I look forward to reading about your AP experiences!  I'm sure the sense of smell just amplifies the experience and makes everything else that much more vivid in detail!

Thanks Xanth, very kind of you!  :-D

Hey, T-Man, yep I know taste works too but I only smell things rarely. It’s not the most pronounced sense in my travels but I know it’s possible.

I had a pretty interesting AP last night. Sometimes I exit my body and sometimes I’m pulled to a certain location. This time I was pulled and I appeared down a long tunnel. There where people here walking down the tunnel and some where on this conveyor belt like at airports. We were walking down the tunnel. I was lucid and felt like something amazing was waiting for me down this path. I got on the conveyor belt and let it take me down the tunnel. I remember seeing a father with his two small children and they where holding hands. Lots of people where there all going in the same direction.

Then the tunnel ended at a black mist. People where going into it and disappearing. Finally it was my turn and I went into darkness.

The next thing I felt was speed. I was being propelled at an incredible rate. And I didn’t have a body anymore. A small star came into view and it grew and grew until it was huge light before me. I could see little lights going toward it and being absorbed but at the last second my path veered off in another direction. I was propelled toward the darkness again - the big star disappeared.

The next thing I knew I had a body again and I was stepping unto solid ground. The first thing I saw was a sign in English that said “Welcome to Alpha Pine”. The place reminded me of a mall actually. I walked around and there where stores and even fast food places. I was so curious about what astral fast food was like so I went into this fast food joint that had a hamburger on its sign and some weird name. I went in and there where a few customers but no place to make a line to get food. I saw an employee and asked him how to get some food. He walked me over to this contraption pushed a button and out came a hamburger wrapped in paper. I said thank you and went out the doors which led outside.

I saw mountains and lots of pine trees. The air was so fresh and I could hear ravens calling to each other. I saw some flying. Well, at this point I really wanted to try my hamburger so I unwrapped it and took a bite. It tasted like a hamburger and it was yummy but the texture was so different. Not like normal but fluffier like it was half made of air. It sorta satisfied me but I think physical food is way better than astral food.

I kept walking and made it to the entrance of the mall... it said Alpha Pine Mall. Then I woke up! Strange one!

These are interesting Shineling. I love learning that someone has reached that point where they 'know' they can ap and so they just do it. So I would like to ask a question.

What is your AP goal now?

Title: Re: shineling’s APs
Post by: shineling on July 11, 2019, 08:23:21
Hey Nameless, thanks, and here are some thoughts...

When I first started APing I was surprised at the amount of darkness or outright black in the astral. Indeed, I think as physical beings we live on a plane where the Light doesn’t shine all that brightly. Sometimes when I exit, I’ll go outside around 4am and it is literally pitch black. I can see this would be a turn off for someone beginning to AP. It sure was to me. And there are shadow beings floating in that darkness sometimes. I have found they are harmless however...

But as my practice progressed I had fewer and fewer “Black night” experiences. I still get them though where my street is so dark and lonely it’s very scary. Now, sometimes, the lights will be on in some of the houses. Or there are humans dancing the streets or instead of pitch black it’s morning come or early twilight with the sky in all pretty colors.

So for me, right now, my goal is to increase my Light level. Being a physical being bordering dark astral planes I think in this I will not be completely succesful... but I’d like to see more Light in my APs. I’ve been to some planes that where utterly beautiful. Gardens or neighborhoods that you could immediately tell where on this side of the Light, And I guess, I’d like to avoid that scary pitch darkness as much as possible.

I think a lot of people think APing means gardens of light and heaven-like environments (and they are out there) but I think we are also meant to experience the darkness and within that experience make choices as to who and what we want to become. I also think that we as humans we are naturally protected by a guardian force that wishes us to seek the Light. But I also think the same guardian force wants to familiarize us with darkness as a teacher exposes his pupil to all subjects, not just the pretty ones. For me, the experience of the Guardian has been like a tourist guide, exposing me to all that is out there. How else can we grow?

This universe is made up of both the Light and the Darkness. There’s so much out there... I think it’s a mistake to expect that we will always end up in the Light. So like I said, I’m making my personal mission to strive for more Light and Love in my life and of course in my out of body experiences.

Title: Re: shineling’s APs
Post by: shineling on July 13, 2019, 12:26:12
This was one of the best APs I've ever had.

I come to the point and I ask myself what is the point of astral projecting? It's always the same stuff... some strange experience, some far away adventure, cool sights and sounds, strange beings. So what else?

This time I went out my side wall and I went straight UP as far and as long as I could!

I wanted to get to Heaven. To really see the LIGHT!

I turned on my hand jets and just kept on going and going straight up and up and up.

I went through so many layers and worlds full of strange beings and lands. It was almost grotesque how many different stuff is out there. And how absolutely HUGE this Universe is.

There was this pretty place with spheres of metal that floated and resonated. I sat there on a deserted hill and watched them go by - taking a breather.

Then I remember I landed inside a tunnel. It was full of children hurrying around and in fear.

I rested at another place full of fog. Hills where everywhere with abandoned ruins and strange writing on the rocks.

On my way up I also remember passing huge galaxies and nebulas. They where a little dark... not like regular galaxies we view with a telescope. I heard a voice tell me that the reason they were half dimmed was because I was viewing them from a great height. All the suns put together would look like a dark blemish as viewed from Heaven.
As I went up I encountered a flow that went opposite me... downward. The Negative Power. I pushed so hard against it. Everytime I weakened it was there waiting to pull me back down to the trenches from where I came.

There where many types of powerful astral beings who played tricks on me and tested me. I mean big GIANT astral entities. One of them took my shoes! The tests where over in a matter of seconds because I was so adimant in reaching the Light. One test... they fondeled me with a beautiful naked child. I heard a big deep voice say "Let's see how he reacts to flesh." I just kept on saying LIGHT! and I kept going higher and higher.

At one point I finally had a taste of the Light. It was so beautiful. I deep tunnel opened in front of me and it was pure Light. But it was gone so soon. I had to engage my hand jets on overdrive to just keep going.

I went to sleep 12 am, projected immediately and got back at 2 am. I was out there for 2 hours!

Thanks for reading all my crazy AP experiences.

Last night was weird...

There’s three modes of dreaming for me. There is dreaming asleep, that’s usually what most dreams are for most people. There is dreaming lucidly, that’s dreaming awake. And there is what I call dreaming the Dreamer, where you and your dreamer are not different but One. Last night I dreamed with my Dreamer.

When I’m lucid and I’m dreaming the Dreamer I am a different person. This person has confidence, he’s super smart, very handsome, and very skillful. It’s like lucidity but you are lucid as this new person with new memories and new skills. The dreamer in us is always our best selves. He is humorous, light sided, and always ready to do a good deed.

Well last night I was my Dreamer and I went down “the  Well”. It all started by me exiting my body and going through the wall. Outside was this girl dressed in a lavender dress with loose skirts. She was pretty and told me to get in the Jeep which was parked next to my house and was red and white. She said that we were going to the Well so I could learn it. She also said she was sent by the Collaborators. This is a group of entities that have helped me before. The first time I met them they did an amazing healing on me.

We started driving and soon we were out of my neighborhood and into a dense forest road. The trees looked purple and blue and it was on the dark side. We came upon a large stone building and got out of the Jeep by a gate that went out back. I followed my friend behind the small castle looking building toward a huge hole in the ground. There stood the Well. It was large with a diameter of perhaps 4 meters and looking down it looked deep with no water immediately discernible. That’s when my friend did something to me and I became my Dreamer.

It’s difficult to say what we did but me and this girl went down this Well and she showed me things. I was lucid in the astral not as a normal person but as this super me. I had access to all my astral knowledge and I used it to do mysterious things inside and down this well. Being back to my normal self I cannot recall exactly what we did but I remember a silence so quiet that it was deafening. Whatever this place was, it was not part of everyday life and it was special. From the intense quiet rose a song of silence yet I could hear it with my extended senses. It was audible but not with my ears but with my feeling. We went deeper and deeper down the Well. At this point I can’t remember what else it was I discovered. I think those memories belong to my Dreamer only and are part of the other. The other part that I remember was visual like seeing a ring of fractals all around me.

Told ya... it was a weird night.   :-)

Your experiences sound very cool and intriguing!  Being that you are able to AP at will do you find yourself getting bored or do you look forward to them?  I’m just wondering if you feel that you learn anything from your experiences or are they just adventures for you?  I have only experienced a few spontaneous OBE’s but am dedicated to learning more about my spiritual side however or wherever that takes me.  A few nights ago I was in a Lucid dream where at one point I was given a artificial hand attached to a stick and was told to put it against my heart.  As I cupped the artificial hand with my hand against my chest I felt vibrations and saw energy/sparks and than my whole body was vibrating.  I was starting to wake up and tried to initiate an OBE but I just ended up falling asleep and went directly into a False Awakening dream.  Hopefully next time I will be able to do the exit!

Hey T-Man... yeah I love APing. The only time it gets boring is when I have regular asleep dreams. That’s when I go to sleep and I’m not that lucid. It feels like watching someone else dream. I really enjoy the lucid state because it opens up all kinds of possibilities. And I am an explorer by nature... so I’m always exploring and it never gets old although maybe I’ve become used to certain aspects of the AP. Still, it’s like a big project that one is always working on and it always seems to change and grow over time with new knowledge.
That is an interesting experience T-Man... sounds like you were being guided by the guardian force. You'll encounter it as a force that takes care of you or teaches you things in the astral. Keep at it and try to watch yourself falling asleep. That's how i learned. Be vigilant and slowly sink into sleep.

Last night was interesting...

I went to sleep and between wakefulness and falling asleep I heard these little Faery voices chatting. They sounded mischievous and really a little scary. One thing about astral projecting I think is that you invite a lot of stuff to come in. I really don't know what to do about that aspect of OOBEing besides clear my room and put up wards.


After I heard these little pip-squeak voices chatting to each other besides my bed I immediately astral projected to see what they where.

On the floor was this little ping-pong ball of astral energy. When I approached it, it moved away.

I quickly nabbed it in my hands from the floor and took a closer look.

The little voices were apparenlty coming from inside this ball. They were apparently upset. I could hear them talking to each other like they were in trouble. The ball in my hands was buzzing and vibrating.

They sounded so Faery like little woodsen creatures. They were probably out to play. They just happened to be playing in my room!

I grabbed the ball and went outside. I made a good distance between my house and put it on the grass. Immediately it started rolling away with little laughs and squeaks. I heard a few ridicules in my directions before it vanished from sight.

I hope they don't come back though!

Reading AP experiences are so interesting, yet so frustrating for me wanting these experiences lol. Anywho, 25, bravo for keeping at it! 8-)

Well ok, I’m 44 years old this year and I’m finally at the point in my APing where I can AP whenever I want. That’s to say, if I feel like going out I can always get out of my body without problems. This has been about a 25 year journey for me because I started reading about astral projection when I was around 18. It’s so cool to be at this point and be able to explore and experiment.

The trick is to keep watching yourself fall asleep. Otherwise, there comes a point where lucidity will just stop and you veer off into the void.

Your suggestion is straightforward, but I hope you don't mind a few more questions. 25 years is a long road so I would think there's more to share regarding the practice.

Before bed, are you doing anything else, like meditation? Mantras?

Nowadays the typical suggestion is to make these attempts after about 4-6 hours of sleep when rem sleep increases (this is called WBTB wake back to bed). Get the deep sleep out of the way, then try. However, it sounds like you do this right when you go to bed at night?

With the advice you give of watching ourselves as we fall asleep, do you have any other tips? Are you really just watching? No internal dialogue or what I call an "anchor"  to aide you mind from falling asleep (examples include repeating a mantra, counting, or imagining a scene)?

Well... I think it’s very simple to just watch yourself. But the letting go is tougher. You have to retain a tiny piece of awareness awake... kinda sorta hide in this little piece of lucidity. And if you can carry it after most of your brain is asleep you can come forward then and slip out. I also think there is a sticky membrane that at first glues our astral and physical bodies together. You have to loosen up this membrane over time so you can quickly exit. You just roll out without any problems eventually. I think you can advance to the level of possibly projecting your astral body to the physical reality. So you could project like Luke Did in the last Star Wars or project like Don Juan did in the Castaneda books. I think it was called the double or dreamer self. You could project it physically and it was achieved through astral projection and dreaming.

It is indeed a "balancing act". But, it's achievable. The more you experience it, the deeper your "own" control over and during the experience, will be.
 I say it like the band 38 Special says it, "hold on loosely, but don't let go"!  8-) Once you learn to do this, you will find many "Doorways" opening in front of you!

 I enjoyed reading your experiences Shineling!  8-) I won't try to dissect them though. Only "you" know or will soon learn their true meaning!  :wink:

Post by: shineling on July 26, 2019, 17:33:42
Thanks Lumaza. I think some APs are prone to translation because we are dreamers and we dream things. There is a huge astral world though which dreamers and people populate and co-create.

Last night I went to a not so good place. You could immediately tell it was a real place because the experience was so solidly lucid. I appeared on a vast plane like a flat desert. I saw some rude building up ahead. They weren’t pretty, built strictly for function. Inside these building were rooms full of children. The place stank of human slobbery. The kids were wearing rags and packed into many small rooms. Most rooms had some kind of small television hung up on the wall.

I don’t know who these kids were but there were tons. As I left the building a saw one adult walking toward me. She was just as dirty. She freaked me out so I wasn’t going to talk to her. As she walked passed me she spoke and said, “Hello Death.”

I guess she didn’t see many of my kind here wherever kids are kept in slums like they’ve been thrown away. It also felt like my guiding force was showing me something of the “real world”.

There’s all kinds of places like that... I call them the badlands. Thankfully there are wonderful beautiful places which we can attain. It has to do with being a good person and showing your soul to God... so you can form a relationship with the Universe. Whatever that force is we’re a part of it and we need to foster a relationship that will guarantee a good there after.

I became lucid in the middle of a dream. Me and two regulars of my circle where being carted through a lush forest at night on three plush bean bags. They are just two friends I made in the astral and we go on adventures together. I don’t really know them in real life but they seemed to be real people under the scrutiny of lucidly. So we hang out sometimes... I’ll call them Bill and Ted.

The bean bags carried us through the night forest into a cool looking elephant park! It was made of stone with deep ancient carvings. We got out of the bean bags and checked out the park. The elephants were friendly and a little one ran around with us. So cute... We got on the bean bags and continued on. The bean bags deposited us on the steps of a monestary and we checked that out.

It was a white washed building made of stone and it was dark and quiet except in every room there are lots of candles on. But there is not a soul around.

We hiked down a path into town and there was a deathly still in the streets except for this huge cathedral where light was shining through. We entered and there was this huge dance going on with loud music. The music couldn’t not be heard until we opened the door.

I guess this is where I go into the dream because I remember really enjoying myself. Wish those memories were clearer but they fade in the light of day.

I was lucid again for one more moment. It was the inside of that large cathedral but dark now and full of beds. Everyone had gone to sleep. Me and my friends said goodbye and then we found our beds.

I exited my body and since I fell asleep on my couch, I exited through the front door. The street was dark and I immediately looked to see which houses had their lights turned on. This means I can go in there and explore. But none of the houses looked like my neighborhood... and as I walked down the street toward some lights I started seeing these huge heads above me. It was as if behind the houses there where lots of giraffes and their necks sorta made an arch over the street. But the giant giraffes over the street had the most alien and amazing faces. It was so real... I could see every detail of these animal things watching me walk down the street and I wondered what power it was that could be so artful.

Well tonight was a breakthrough... I finally got the knack of total freedom of freedom and freedom of creation. At one point I got hungry and me and a group of people made dinner by just imagining different dishes and pointing to a spot on the table. It tasted wonderful too. Not like my previous astral food.

I got to watch the movies at this theater with a few people and we weren’t just watching the movie we were creating it from our very own enhanced imaginations. They would add something and then I would add something and it appeared right on the screen. And things started reacting to each other until we were all laughing in our seats! Astral has some great tv.

I had sex with three hot babes and it was good fun sex that lasted quite awhile and didn’t make me wake up. I climaxed just fine this time (it’s tough for boys in the astral) but this time it worked. When I woke I saw I had had a nightly emission. Oh well...

I could fly and jump 100 feet at a time and the architecture of the buildings were so beautiful, whitewashed, and clean. Everyone I met was super friendly and in a happy mood. I was doing things I never have before, creating a world out of nothing and sharing the world that had already been created by others. It was a beautiful AP. This is what it’s all about and I can’t wait to see that world with those special astral eyes that makes everything so sharp and colorful.

Btw, I had just finished watching a documentary of the Tibetan Book of the Dead when I drifted asleep. It may have sparked something, lol.

If it's the one I am thinking of, it was quite good!  :-o

Hey Lumaza, yeah I think it’s like the only decent video on the topic. They actually show monks reading the bardo teachings to the dead. Here is some of it on YouTube... (

I was just thinking that APing is a really good way of preparing for the afterlife. They say life is so short so we should enjoy it. But the next life is long so we should prepare for it. So I wonder if the AP experience is in any way similar to the after life or what is beyond death?

From what I’ve heard, the Masters say that the afterlife is very similar to dreaming. But I wonder if that is really true. I hope it is.

I’ve seen and talked to my father who is dead these past 5 years. He seems in a happy mood and the last time I was with him we laughed together. The next time I see him I want to ask him questions like what was death like and of course if he’s doing ok. I hope he can answer those questions because that would point to an awakened mind point of view.

I was watching a documentary on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and what seems at the core of the teachings is that we want to recognize our awake minds once we’ve passed. It’s a source of peace and knowledge, our awake minds. To recognize our awake minds is enough to liberate our souls from confusion.  It’s the truth of our souls that shines forth in so much Light. Well I’d definitely like to see that. But what got my attention was that this awake state is very much like the lucid state in APing. By recognizing that we are lucid we untimately achieve freedom because recognizing that we are awake is recognizing our own godhood. We don’t just recognize that we have magic... we are that magic. We are not just part of the Universe... we are the same Universe dreaming itself.

Hmmmmmm.....  :-)

Yes, that's the one!  :-)

That's what William Buhlman and some other noted authors of AP teach.
 A few weeks back I heard a Radio interview with a man named Father Nathan Castle. He teaches people on "death's door" to actually prepare for their "afterlife party". He has them make a list of whom they wish to attend it. I really enjoyed his take on all of this.  8-) He uses the teachings of the Monks and their idea of a Bardo state, in his talks, as well.

 Here is one of his recent interviews on this topic. It's not the one I listened to on Midnight in the Desert a month or so ago.

Thanks for the links Lumaza! I checked them out and they where good. Learned a thing or two... thanks again.

After a few nights of restless sleep and forboding dreams I finally had a joyous astral projection.

I looked around my room. It was quiet and homey. I quickly went out my wall and sprung into the air. I noticed that I was lighter than usual - almost as if something or someone was helping me float.

It was another beautiful night. The stars where out and they sparkled from above making the dark night gleam with a light all its own. I headed down the street floating on a cushion of air. I saw some people in their car driving my way and I heard their thoughts as the car passed under me.

"Look Mama, a flying boy!"

"That's amazing," commented the Father.

"That's one of God's children honey."

"Am I a God's children?"

The Mother laughed and said, "Of course you are darling. Someday we'll all get to fly like that."

I was a little startled. Everyone flies in their dreams... unless they don't know they are dreaming. The people in that car did not know they where asleep and in the astral. They were half-aware.

 I headed North toward Canada. I picked up an incredible speed and traveled through valleys and neighborhoods full of green bushy trees and nestled little houses with their porch lights on. At one point I got tired and felt like landing.

I smoothly touched down on a stretch of road in some neighborhood in some city in some state. There where a few people there to greet me - a group of boys playing ball in the evening twilight.

"Wow! Where did you come from?" one of the boys asked. I felt like Superman just coming down from the sky.

"I'm from down South in Florida. Where am I now?" I asked.

"You're in Wisconsin!" one of the older boys said.

Winconsin? I sure had made the trip North alright!

They where very excited about my aerial acrobatics and wanted to try it themselves. They weren't very good at it though. They couldn't fly at all. Someone offered me a helmet and said I should use it in case I fell down out of the sky. I put on the helmet and
it felt really good on my head.

They wanted to take me into their house. I knew they where dreaming and not in complete awareness but I played along. They took me into their building where they wanted me to "watch some TV with them". Oh oh! The earmarks of a phantom trap! I quickly made my exit through a window which made them very mad. "Come back here you bastard!"

I continued flying North. I saw beautiful pastures, and lakes with little islands. There was an island full of beautiful girls in bikinis who made me want to stop. They where having a party with a bon-fire and I could hear the music blasting.

Near shore's edge I spotted a lonesome girl. She was just standing there looking out unto the lake. I landed right next to her. She jumped in surprise. I smiled and she smiled back. I slowly put my arm around her shoulder and leaned in for a kiss. She leaned in as well and our lips touched.

And then I woke up!

What a pleasent and joyful AP. It was just what I had needed.

Last night I became lucid on a strange plane. There was some kind of regime going on this plane and there where soldiers walking the streets. Things looked organized but there were the start of dilapidated buildings and there was some refuse in the streets.

I saw a circus on one corner and a small mob was buying tickets trying to get in. The people were dressed in tacky worn clothes. I jumped the fence and went into the circus. I entered a tent where a few acrobats were practicing. I watched for awhile and then someone came over to me. It was one of the acrobats. He had a big mustache. “You shouldn’t be here. You’re in the wrong place. If you come with me I can get you out.” He seemed earnest so I followed.

We went behind the tent into another tent that was dark and full of boxes. In one dark corner was a small tunnel in the corner. “Follow me,” said the man and he got on all fours and went in. I followed. At the other end was a makeshift gang plank in mid air. All around was black but I could see that it was a bridge leading upward in thin wooden planks.

I finally made it to the other side and had to squueze through this silky tunnel at the end. What met my eyes stunned me. It was a garden eden of some sort. There were green hills that went on forever and small groves of trees dotted the land. The sun was out and the sky was that pure astral blue. The man had turned into some kind of minotaur but he looked badass with horns. The Minotaur said, “Stay here.” And then he was gone, back into the tunnel.

I wanted to share one tip that has really helped me in the AP process. That tip is that I save my sexual energy. I think this more than anything has helped me improve my successes in astral projecting.

I didn’t “get it” for like a 6 months. I stopped jerking off so much... maybe 1 time every week to 10 days. After I started doing this I started projecting on a regular basis and having many more lucid dreams. It does take a measure of discipline of course but I save it for my APs because sometimes sex can happen. That’s ok as long as it happens in the astral. I look forward to my sexual encounters in the astral so I save my sexual energy down here on Earth.

Like I said, it took me awhile to notice the benefits but I totally believe that saving sexual energy as much as possible can really help humans project more often and lucidly.

I found the same thing- That saving sexual energy promoted my NP experiences early on. Just my guess but that may have to do with the higher energy requirements that etheric and early astral experiences require; it gets easier as you go along.

shineling, one insight you may discover is that the discipline required to conserve your sexual energy on the Physical Plane is also required in how you handle your activities on the Etheric and Astral Planes, in order to advance or make progress. Fear is the first emotion to bring under control; then the sexual impulse must be controlled; without learning to do so limits the experiences available to you.

An interesting aspect of the NP is that many answers can be freely given; the difficulty is that you must put them into practice. Only then does one truly learn and know.

Post by: shineling on August 24, 2019, 00:09:54
Thanks for that... I think sex gets transcended by older more experienced beings. I think it’s part of the natural cycle of our lives as universal beings not just humans. Young souls probably have more sex than older souls. Sex itself can be trancendental but I think it obscures the higher and finer mysteries.

If someone asked me to choose between sex and the higher mysteries I’d choose the higher mysteries. But given the option, I’d like to experience both. That’s why I think it’s part of everyone’s cycle. That’s what beings do.... they grow and evolve.

I exited my body in one smooth motion by rolling out towards the left and then through the wall. Everything looked normal and it was a dark night. I headed towards my back yard. Instead of the fence that is usually there separating my neighbor’s yard, there were lots of trees like a forest and a small dirt path leading into it.

My two cats were there too. I don’t know if I was dreaming them or if they were also APing. In the real world they were on my bed next to me asleep. They where playing and chasing each other. They started running down the path and so I followed.

The forest got deeper and deeper and then we made it to a clearing where the forest opened up. There was a nice bluish light surrounding everything so that instead of a scary dark forest, it felt homey and welcoming. There was a small pond there which was fed by a small gurgling river on the right. Toward the left was a hill where the land rose in a series of tiers. The tiers were connected by small stairs which where made of stone.

My two kitties disappeared and I looked around a little concerned. I spent awhile looking for them until in a lucid moment I realized and remembered I was APing. I figured they where alright and went up some stairs to the third tier of the hill. There was a gazebo there with benches and I sat down and just relaxed for awhile. My view wandered around my surroundings and I spied several people who were sitting on benches too above and below me.

Suddenly a group of girls came walking toward me. They where talking and very animated. One girl had short blond hair and was dressed in a nice little one piece with a very short skirt exposing her beautiful white legs. This was the girl that stopped and looked at me. “You have such nice hair,” she said to me. “How do you get it to shine like that?” This came as a surprise to me so I just said what popped into my head. “I just wash it.” She went on about my hair some more, lol, and then she took my hand. The other girls had gone and she sat down next to me and we held hands. I cuddled her hand and rubbed it a little and it felt really good.

I woke up a little after that and felt really happy. Sometimes all you need is for someone to hold your hand.  :-)

I haven’t been APing lately... just a little here and there. But last night I decided to AP on purpose again. I got in my bean bag and got into my blanket and fell asleep. I watched myself falling asleep and I was tired so it was easy. At some point I fell asleep and dreamed that I’d go outside and take a look to see how things would be when I APed. Isn’t that super weird? I dreamed about APing or something!

Anyway, I woke up some and this time I counciously APed. I got out of my bean bag in my astral body and went outside the front door. The first thing I saw were stars.

The sky was littered with some of the brightest stars I’d ever seen. The street was really dark but not black and the darkness felt thrilling. I looked down the street for any lights but there were none... except one. Far down the street was a lit bulb on a building like a church. I engaged my speeder-bike move and was there in a matter of seconds.

I was in front of the building and cars where going by in the street. I think I saw a jazzed up cop car. It was cool looking. I went into the building. At the desk was an old man with a little hat. I think he was like a security guard or something. Anyway, we introduced ourselves and went on to talk about APing and dreams. In the end I think I was talking to a fully conscious entity who understood me and had concepts pertaining to his own individualized experience. I just don’t think he knew he was asleep. Maybe it was like two dreamers meeting... except I knew I was dreaming. Or maybe he was a phantom.. he obviously had some kind of life but I am stuck not knowing who these people are that populate my dreams and APs.

I’ve been having great APs lately. Here is one from a few days ago.

I exited my body and slipped through my bedroom wall. I was outside and it was just dawning. Some of the neighborhood porch lights where still on so I picked the nearest house with a light and opened the door. Inside was a dark tunnel that went on a few meters toward an archway where I could see blue sky. I went down the tunnel and came out the other side.

I saw kids everywhere. Mostly teenagers around sixteen years of age. Everyone was playing. Some where playing volleyball and soccer or rocking on swings or running or just in groups talking. It was a huge playground! Around the playground where two story houses in all colors. A group of young guys came toward me and we started talking.

Something was happening to my vision... it was hard to keep focused. “What’s wrong?” said one of the boys. “It’s my eyes, I can’t see.” The boy grabbed me by the bridge of the nose near my eyes and did something and suddenly I could see again. “Thanks, that’s better,” I said. “Come with us, there’s a healer in one of the houses. They’ll take a look at you.” I agreed and followed the leader to this pointy two story house.

We went into the house but there was a line to see the healer. I could feel myself waking up and I was antsy to see the healer because I knew I didn’t have enough time to wait. Suddenly I was lifted into the air, floated up the stairs and into the healer’s room. There where many people inside. It was a pretty big room and it was carpeted with soft white carpet. I heard a voice say, “Ok now, everyone lay down on the floor. Now close your eyes and try to go to sleep.”

I was gently dropped on a clear spot on the floor and I lay down. Around me I could see many young boys and girls doing the same. The lights dimmed and I closed my eyes and was still. The healing was about to begin.

I was a little afraid. Like going to the doctor. Some really depressing things that are going on in my life right now came to the forefront of my mind. Before I knew it, I was crying like a baby. I was so sad. Then... then... I felt something crazy! Imagine being hit in the face with water from a hose on high. That’s what it felt like. But it wasn’t ordinary water. It was happy water because as I was drenched with water I got so happy!

I started laughing out loud and the hose continued to water me all over my body. I laughed so hard! I was full of joy! And that’s how I woke up... laughing my butt off in bed. It lasted the entire day. It felt like I was joyous and free all day and had this little glow in my heart.

Whatever that magic water was, it certainly did the trick. I don’t think I’ve ever been that happy and laughed so hard. I wonder where that water comes from and who is in charge of dispersing it. It was a healing session after all.  :lol: :-P

Title: Re: shineling’s APs
Post by: shineling on September 26, 2019, 01:24:55
This AP scared me a little because it was on the intense side. It all started in a dream I was having. I felt a slight breeze tickle my face and I snapped into full lucidity! Snap!

I was with friends and they were all excited - a storm was coming. A serious storm. An Awareness Storm. The information was percolating through my network of friends and we were all getting ready. We just wouldn’t be lucid, we would be super lucid!

I don’t exactly know how the information was spreading, but all my family and friends were congregating. We would take shelter at this building we all knew and usually take shelter in. I seemed to have access to a new vast knowledge about my astral life and could see how me and all my friends were connected to each other. A sort of astral network or community.

I found myself walking down a street with a group of my closest friends toward the building were we would take shelter. I was extra-lucidly aware of everything and had access to all my astral memories. The wind had picked up considerably and I could hear a low ominous moaning coming from the sky. It was dark and flashes of lighting were shooting down. Someone started screaming, “Run! Run! Run!”

We just made it to the building when the storm hit. Everyone found a room and hunkered down. The thing about an awareness storm is that it super-charges one’s awareness. It can make someone extremely uncomfortable. Some see it as a chance to explore their awareness but there’s always a chance of loosing control and going crazy.

Outside the storm began screaming! As every screech came, my awareness would peak into a climax, and I had access to the deepest depths of my consciousness. I kneeled down in a corner and put my head between my knees. It was painful and totally disconcerting. Every time the storm would screech I kept getting more and more awareness. It was painful in that way. Too much awareness! Too much lucidity! Ahhhh!

Then someone was holding my hand. I looked up and it was my best-friend’s sister. We hardly knew each other in real-life, but under the effects of the storm I could remember an ancient history together. Lifetimes and lifetimes together. In many of them we had been married. Another storm screech went by and then she was in my arms and we held each other for dear life. Thanks to my super-charged awareness I could feel every part of her as we clung to one another. In essence we became one being.

The storm continued outside but we found relief in each other. Instead of the uncomfortable pain of too much consciousness we began looking forward to the storm surges. We would climax together and could feel infinity and eternity between us. It had absolutely nothing to do with sex. It felt like I had found my soul mate... someone who knew me and fit together with me perfectly. At this point any awareness of sex was obsolete. It was Love but love so pure and untainted by any carnal awareness. I have never felt anything like it in this current life. It was deep man... At one point we started conversing mind to mind and it was so blissful and intoxicating to share one mind.

I don’t know how long we were lost in each other but the storm eventually blew off and me and all my friends “woke up”.

Now, as I write this I realize that we are beings who live in two realities. One is our waking life but the other is our astral life and both are just as valid. It’s in all our lucid experiences but also in all those we can’t remember. We still have so much to discover about ourselves and this universe which we are a part of.

I’ve been having some crazy APs lately. Some are worth sharing...

I was at this place that looked like Mars. I was on top of this tall tall cliff and I was just sitting there on it’s edge. The drop off must have been a mile deep. And there was this low and lonely moan of the wind. It was such a weird and lonely place but it was beautiful.

Then I had one were after I exited my body, outside was this swirling hole with energy spiraling inward. Something told me it was a “fox hole” and it could take you wherever you wanted. So I jumped in. I appeared in this beautiful neighborhood. The houses looked super modern. There where trees surrounding each house and there where canals of water between the houses (some of them). The design was beautiful in simplicity. I saw two people approaching on a sidewalk and realized they where wearing cat suits. They looked super cute these kitty suits. I went up to the nearest house and I saw my last name on the mailbox. There was also a number on the mailbox, it was 4463. I didn’t want to go in so I checked out one of the canals. It ran straight between the houses and it wasn’t exactly water. It was this golden color and it looked filmy and thick and lusterly. It was beautiful golden amber color. I wanted to touch it but that’s the moment I woke up.

One more... I became lucid at this place high up in the sky. I was inside the building and there was a huge wide opening that led to a docking bay. There where a couple ships docked but the sky was so so so blue. I could have started at it forever. Anyway, some guy comes up to me and scans me with this device. He reads the scanner and asks me to come with him. So I follow him into this other area with lab equipment. This guy shows the scanner to the lab technician. “My my! A 68 particle!” The techs now, take a sample from my skin real fast and puts it under a microscope. It was a next level microscope it was flashing something fierce. This cute girl, one of the lab techies I guess, stars making eyes with me and smiles. The next part is weird too... I guess they invite me to set up my own project bench and start my own project. I realize it’s just a bunch of advanced humans setting up cool astral projects in the astral.

I’ll try to keep this thread updated from time to time and let you know how I’m doing. Peace...

One thing about APing is that sometimes you bump into things - or things bump into you.

I fell asleep and exited... but it wasn’t my room I exited into. It was a beautiful room in the sky. The room was in a tower and it opened up to the sky. Curtains of silk flew from the columns with a steady breeze.

Suddenly, the bed starts shacking and drops right down into the earth. A trip straight to hell. At the bottom is this green skinned being who looks like he’s getting out of this black ooze.

Anyway, he morphs to a handsome human and introduces himself as the Devil.

He showed me things... his harem... from which he offered me my pick of beautiful babes. Then he showed me three movies he was obviously proud of. Him and his retinue seemed excited about those movies. Then we went drinking... in Hell. He was obviously talented in the world of the astral but I doubt he was really Satan. Lol... I hope not anyway. Peace...

The Light has a great way to be happy, which is perfectly truthful and honest. The Dark has a great way of knowing who to be, and to become. In any such case as love being lost, souls naturally do incline toward one or the other. The question is, who is wrong? Nobody.

Hence, the no-need policy with impossible others.

I do think it's a great idea to astral travel around the suburb you live in - in fact I tried this myself. I rolled out (never exitted that way before) and through the mirror on my left and flew up into the cloudy sky about 1km, then soared across to an island off the coast. On the island is a lighthouse, white. I scried it and the energy in responded to the thought/word "great." Then I was back in my body.

This journey taught me that my flying skills are intact also that where I live is not so scary and drab. Although it was cloudy, fun was presumed (forever in fact). I did not really know that I felt this way before, about the suburb I live in. Cool.

Sharing another one:

I pulled myself up the rope and flew fast toward and into the Sun. I was in the center of the Sun, like a starjump, arms and legs apart, when a stamp or brand kicked me out of the Sun. I did not check to find out if there was something written on my backside. I simply returned to my body in the real world. This experience took 3 minutes.

Hey guys, thanks for responding. Well... if the Devil has come for me, I don’t think he’s the devil that everyone thinks. The real devil comes deep rooted in nature... a sort of godhead. If he showed up I think as an ally I might consider it...

I like flying too. I fly more than I did before and they are sometimes guided. I went up and up and up one time and found innumerable worlds on top of each other. It just went on and on.

But I’ve enjoyed exploring my neighborhood a lot. I’ve been outside my house in darkness at 3 am out of body and it’s something else. It’s a world between realities and it blows my mind everytime. I started going into other houses. None is ever locked. They just open and the crazy worlds they that each leads to. Each one a fantastic adventure. I stay away from the really dark houses because they are scary. So mostly I just do the ones with porch lights on. It’s almost an invitation because it’s not really your neighborhood... it’s your quantum reflection of your neighborhood... and that belongs personally to you... part of your quantum signature. Anyway, it’s always out there... just get out of your body and you’re there!

Last night I traveled to the farthest reaches of my known universe visiting alien worlds I never knew existed. It started like any normal AP. I flew around free as a bird looking for anything interesting. Well last night I found it. I came upon this laughing little girl. She seemed so strange and half there almost. I approached this being because it was new to my experience and wanted to find out what she or it was. Just a little laughing ghost girl dressed in strange Japanese tights it seemed. She just happened to be a scout from a galaxy far far away.

As soon as I touched her I was transported a million dimensions away. I ended up in a world inconceivable from mine. This world was perhaps millions of years ahead of us. They had astral technology and guided my astral body into a docking bay while I could hear a read-out of my body's abilities, "three raptures, two blades, and 309 maneuvers". What where they talkin about?

I could see part of their astral technology as it held my astral body like a spider with millions of fibers of silk. It didn't seem so strange to me that other advanced civilizations would have astral airports and astral worlds on top of their physical worlds. I could see thousands of other souls coming into the airport, being grabbed by these silky pads, and being guided into the terminal. It was so beautiful. I wondered what kind of transformation a civilization must undergo to be able to grasp such concepts as astral technology. Not just that... a whole astral reality based on their physical reality with rules and laws of its own. Wow I thought.

I was set loose upon this alien world. When I asked one of the airport employees why I was being let go into their astral society he said, "Just part of professionalism." These guys had an open door policy for tourists.

I saw a LOT of weird crap. I saw plants that walked around with little briefcases making errands in this large city. I saw strange looking people, some tall, some short, with all kinds of weird looks. Some looked like blue kitty-cats, some looked like pink koala bears. I passed a pet shop and saw a little girl (I think) playing with a bunch of tribble-like creatures. I held one and it purred in my hand. It was a wonderful sensation. I entered a park with huge fruit trees and asked a park employee if I could take a fruit from the tree. "Sure," he said, "it's just part of professionalism." I bit into it and it was the most tasty astral meal to date. I got to watch some of their television on some screens they had outside. It was AMAZING! I have never seen such eye-candy in my life. I just stared at it for the longest time. The commercials where the absolute best!

Anyway... I've never had an AP like this one. It was out there man. I can't believe there are places like that.

I’ve been staying mostly in lately and just catching up on sleep. But last night I decided to exit... so I drifted off and when I felt the time was right I exited. As I was exiting though I felt a tremendous pull on my astral body and halfway out I was ripped from my physical body. This dark force took me away into an immense black void. I started praying for someone or something to get me out...

Then I saw like a bright dust appear. As it spread beneath me I could suddenly tell they where the lights of a wooden village. Then there was a hill and a sky and I landed. It seemed to be twilight and I was at the bottom of a large foresty hill. Below me I could see a beautiful little town with smoke chiminies going in the evening sky. I saw someone approaching... it was a man in a robe coming down the hill on a small dirt path. He looked Asian and wise. He stopped before me and I addressed him. “Are you a Master?” I asked hopeful I had stumbled unto a wizened being. “No,” he said, “just out for a walk.” He then proceeded down the hill toward the village. I followed...

I lost sight of the man but came upon a few people as I neared the village. They where sitting in a circle with a bowl in the middle. They called out to me to join them and I took a seat in the circle. Then, one of the girls reached into the pot in the middle and pulled out a small figurine of a dolphin. She threw it into the air and it exploded into a zillion particles. Next thing I know there are real live dolphins swimming around us yipping and yapping happy as can be. Everyone started laughing until they went away. We went through like 3 more figurines before I woke up. One was an octopus where octopuses appeared. Then there were sea horses and then sea stars. It was an interesting AP even though it started kinda bad...  :-)

your AP's are super interesting. your last one with the dolphins is so cool too. sounds like you
may have been in a place where they kinda knew maybe you were just "popping in" :)

I been to restaurants over there or almost like little bars... nicest people ever... I think they knew i was kinda from earth and they had no part of earth and knew i was learning. we were all drinking sodas hanging out and then went flying. so these people knew how it worked in the non physical... sometimes i have gone to worlds and walk through a wall and people look at me like i am insane. i accidentally went into this guys house once in the astrals because i lost track of where i was going... passed through too many places.... and i asked him for information on the world i was in. he looked at me like i just broke into his home and then i floated upward and i thought his mouth was gonna hit the floor. it shocked me he didn't understand he could do that over there.

i seen fire trucks just like here and big malls... it blew me away but in the non physical depending where you go there seems to be lots of tvs just like here... people watch movies and eat over there together.... how bad can the afterlife be?!?

Hey Mars, thanks for sharing!

I know what you mean about astral people... sometimes they seem like they know all about Eartly life and sometimes they are profoundly ignorant. I went to this astral plane and was talking to these guys and I asked them what planet I was on. “What’s a planet?” they said. I tried to explain about planets and how they revolve around stars. They had no idea what I was talking about and they thought I was crazy. Lol.

Then some astral people do know about Earth. One time I was with this group and they where asking me all kinds of questions about Earth. “Do you smoke?” “No, I gave it up,” I said. “It is a disgusting habit.” Or one time I was in a hospital of the newly deceased and this girl was crying and saying, “I’m gonna miss my life. I wish I could watch Being Human one more time.” (Which is a movie I found out with Robin Williams. Wierd huh?

I’ve also seen a lot of tv screens myself. Even devices like iPads and cell phones but astral versions where you get your email zapped straight into your brain. I guess technology might be a universal thing. Yeah, after APing for years I am very hopeful about the afterlife. I’m trying to accumulate all the good karma I can get so I end up on a nice astral plane.

Anyway, thanks for responding... see you out there.  :-)

I had a neat lucid dream I thought I’d share. I became lucid as I was walking down a forest trail. Then I saw a grove of giant sequoia trees and looked up into their giant branches. It was so familiar to me and that’s when I knew I had been here many times in my travels. It was like a big recollection... “Oh! The Grove!”

There where people there too that came out of the forest to greet me. I didn’t just know them, I remembered having spent years with them here in “the Grove”. This had been my home for a long time... maybe even before I had been born. There where many people who presented themselves to me and amazingly I knew most of their names. We played a little game where one by one someone came forward and it was my job to remember their name. Everytime i remembered correctly they would all clap and holler.

The Grove was like an astral park where souls would come replenish themselves. There was Eugene... our leader who took care of us and the Grove. We all took care of our beautiful forest. And there was a river where spirits would wade in to heal themselves. It was our job to guide the souls through the Grove (and the river) and make sure everyone was taken care of.

I met this special girl there that was instantly recognizable to me. I have never seen this person in real life but yet in the astral I remembered a long history of friendship between us. She came up to me at one point and said, “Do you remember me? We share a deep connection.” And it was true... I totally felt for this girl and remembered her name.

We all gathered together and Eugene led us into the river. It was quite beautiful. I felt replenished. Then they all put on a show under the Grove with aerial acrobatics. There was a small audience of souls that had come to be healed and we all ah and oohed.

I woke up feeling like I had recovered a piece of my astral history. I hope I get to go back there again. I can’t wait to see it again and have that Home feeling one more time.  :-)

Thanks Lumaza! I’ll try to post the good APs. Unfortunately, sometimes I have negative APs... and they aren’t very pleasant. I guess it’s just the nature of the universe... I’ll try to keep it on the light side.

Speaking of light side... I just took a nap and I APed. Here is something worth sharing I think.

I’ve been so sad lately. My kitty got run over a few days ago. Anyway, I exited my body and saw my dead kitty Jaxy on the couch! I was so happy to see him. He looked healthy and alive and as I petted him he started purring like usual. The cool thing was I also saw my other cat who is currently napping. I’ve suspected for a long time that cats are expert APers. Well, we had ourselves a little reunion my two kitties and me and it made me happy. I’ve been missing my kitty so much since he left us. This made it better.

I used to have a tabby and when he died I saw him in my APs for months after. Maybe they hang around for awhile.... they sorta transition over gradually... maybe.

Always enjoy reading your AP’s!  Sorry to hear about your kitty.  Always tough loosing a member of the family.  I had my cat from when he was only about 6 weeks old but had to put him down last year.  He was a couple months shy of 20 years!

I just wanted to comment about seeing your kitty during your AP.  A few years ago while my cat was still alive I had been napping on the sofa and my cat was also sleeping nearby in the living room.  I had a spontaneous OBE (RTZ) and I saw my cat walking around as well even though I knew he was sleeping.  I believe they AP all the time and probably explains why they sleep so much!

Keep up the great posts!

Regarding those awful things known as cats...

I’m definitely a dog guy...yet my neighbor rescued a boy and girl cat this last summer. The girl apparently found a home and the weather turned cold for the boy...who continually trotted into my yard to say hello and insinuate himself into my life.

So now he sleeps on my couch, intelligent little creature and perfectly behaved...

So, yeah, I get a bit of what Shine and T are talking about...when it comes to these feline complications...

Thanks T-Man and EscapeVelocity!  :-P

I know what you mean T-Man... it's like a family member passed away. Totally hurts. That's super interesting that you saw your cat in the astral too. Sure explains what they are doing for 14 hours a day! lol.

Hey Escape... I like dogs too. I like cats too though. I'm not sure if dogs AP. I'm sure they do but I've never seen one being I'm a cat owner. Let us know if you catch your dog going through walls or something.  :-P You don't find this ball of fur cute?  :-D I know what you mean tho... cats get into trouble a lot more than dogs.

And then it’s like astral people fall into these cliks and groups. Everyone starts to get together and I think that’s how astral structures appear - like astral cities and whole planes manifesting to the song of 100,000 people. They are magical places like Fantasia and if you stick in it long enough you become part of it. These can be good healthy astral planes or hellish realms that our natural karma will take us into.

I’ve been to some “cliks”... like there was this one of astral people trying to help but they got it all wrong and just made things more difficult. Or one where there were only girls, 26 girls, and they balanced themselves with two men only. These two dudes where awesome. And then, there are civilizations... where billions of souls live. Astral civilizations... just think about that!  :-)

There’s been three attempts now at astral entities trying to teach me “astral television”. First, you need the actual construct of the astral tv. Then you can join your spirit to it and let it develop. Well, last night I actually sat down to see what it was all about. I’d been resisting it because I didn’t really want to share myself but I figured they where doing it too. So, I sat down  watched an astral show with a few people.

It was a story about how we were all afraid of each other but that in the end we were all the same. The story developed from all people watching it. It was beautiful seeing us dream together and come to some unified understanding of ourselves.

So astral tv wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be... but I still don’t want to do it so often. I like the astral tv where I am alone the best. I think we all do... it reminds me of Brave  New World where Alphas would get together to meditate and dream on Soma. It was done once in awhile but not often.

Still, it was beautiful...

Last night, I sneaked out of body and slipped through my wall outside. In the grass was this egg that was shining. I was greatly curious so I picked it up. Something crazy happened however. I was sucked right inside the egg. Inside I saw amazing things.

It was better than astral tv. It was like an iPad egg with virtual apps and games. It was connected straight to my consciousness so I could pick which apps and games to play just by thinking about them.

They had all kinds of stuff! They had social apps that where like channels where people could hang out. They where like mini astral planes that led to other mini astral planes. But some weren’t so small. Some where big planes like central hubs where a lot of traffic moved. These where like gateways to many other places.

But my iPad egg also had other apps. I launched the Astral Massage app and was taken into a place where there where beautiful soft shapes that my mind just glided into and it moved and rocked my being to ecstasy.

I played this crazy app... I think it was a game. I was on a boat and Orca whales are coming out of the mountains and splashing into the sea. One moves close and I start riding the whale as it zooms and zags at breakneck speed.

I launched out of the egg and pocketed it for further analysis! :) I hope I get APs like that again.

I’m still APing, just a little different lately. My exiting strategy has gotten easier for me for some reason. Instead of having to creep out of my body like a sheath, I just go to sleep and when I’m tranced enough, I just get out of bed. There’s no more physical body that I have to crawl out of. This makes my APs much easier but I really wonder what happened to that pesky physical body. What I think is happening is that I’m exiting on a higher plane... a plane where the physical body is no longer on the radar.

Some of my APs reflect this theory because before when I used to go outside it was pitch black out there. Kinda scary if you ask me... but that’s how it used to be for me for a long time. I APed a few nights ago and went outside and it was really beautiful. There was snow on the ground (I live in Florida) and all the houses in my neighborhood were charming log cabins. There where pine trees everywhere and they had Christmas lights on them. It was such a cheerful neighborhood and it was lightly snowing and it was quiet except for the small hush of falling snow.

Then I had another AP worth mentioning where after I exited - or now - when I woke up in the astral  - I went outside and it was dawning a beautiful spring morning. There was a car coming down the street and it stopped right in front of my house. The passenger door popped open as if by magic and the car honked twice. So I get into the car and close the door and the car takes off - driving itself! I was freaked out at first but the “driver” was a good driver because the car managed to steer around curbs just fine. I could see the driving wheel turn all by itself. It was super neato! Anyway, I just sat back and enjoyed the ride and pretended God was at the wheel. I saw all kind of charming neighborhoods and then we got on the highway and God was going real fast! We get off at one point and make it to a dirt road somewhere out in the boonies. Finally we stop at this gorgeous view with mountains that looked like a calendar picture from Montana. It was real pretty.

I’ll try to keep the thread updated... just real busy lately. Take care. :)

Those are great experiences shineling! And you recognize that the experiences have shifted to a higher level! The shift from ‘pitch black’ to ‘Spring morning’ is just too obvious to ignore...what a great recognition when it happens! I felt like throwing a party when it happened for me!

Riding in the car with all the recognitions you had, strikes me as very symbolic and clearly shows you are allowing your Higher Self to take charge, and on a subconscious level you are recognizing and authorizing it. Very impressive! I look forward to the incoming experiences!

Thanks Nameless, yeah... I’m pretty happy on my current evolution but I still have lingering negativity that creeps up from time to time. I’m working on it and trying to reach for the Light as much as possible.

Thanks Escape Velocity, I didn’t really think about it that way until now. Now that I do, however, it makes complete sense! Especially the self driving car. It was a silver SUV btw, a current model.  :-D Thanks for the heads up.  :-)

I woke up in the astral and went outside my house. Outside was the beach, literally. I didn’t even have to walk... it was more of a glide. I floated about a foot off the ground and just flew where I wanted. This AP was one that let me experience what it would permanently feel to live in the astral - it lasted so long. First, I explored the beach and got lost in viewing all the people and phenomena. It seems I could float on water as well and that was fun. It seemed to be a twilight setting. At one point I went under a bridge and something got my immediate attention. It was like a sense of smell. And I smelled evil. The closer I got to land there, the more it stank and I could see hungry beings who were already trying to lure me further down to an astral hell. I quickly got out of there.

I traveled and traveled. I found some friends to hang out with and we hung out at this small ranch they had on a hill. It was nice talking in the astral and being around families again. Someone then asked me if I had gone to my Laying of the Rocks. I asked what that was... apparently it was the astral version of a trip to Mecca. But in this case it was a journey or pilgrimage to see GOD.

I was instantly interested so I went with my new friend and he dropped me off at the right plane. There was a field of rocks there and I was told to pick up the same number of rocks as I had serious questions for God. So in my case I picked two and put them in a sack. There must of been thousands of souls on their Laying of the Rocks.

We all started walking and walking and the more we made it into the inside plane I started to have second thoughts. The atmosphere had grown very serious. Not like a happy “let’s go visit God” trip but a serious “Do I really want to mess around with God?” feeling. The closer we came to God the more this sense of serious power oozed from the very air. It was ominous.

I just got in line and followed everyone forward. Suddenly everything started shaking. Someone was explaining that it was normal to get rid of the rocks God thought where deemed petty or unnecessary. Remember, each rock represented a real serious question we wanted to see God about. Well, both my rocks disappeared. I guess they where not that serious to bother real God with. Some people, very few, were only left with one rock.

The size and raw power of God was making itself very plain. At this point we were told we could go forward and seek our fates or turn back. Most of the people who wanted to see God turned back... and I was one of them. My astral body understood that this was a power not to play around with. Love and joy and the beautiful lighted planes would do fine. I didn’t  really need to confront God himself about my little life. Because really, I have nothing to complain about.

I flew back to my new friends and shared my experience. Apparently they had had a similar one. Like I said, apparently mostly everyone turns back from really meeting God.

I woke up and knew I immediately I had to get this down. I had a new experience of God - a new aspect of Him - and he was terrifying. That raw power that just makes you want to run away. I was sorry God took my rocks but I understand that I’m one of the lucky ones. There are people out there with serious problems and maybe that’s what a God can do for them. I was surprised God was not a man but a huge infinite entity with infinite power. He was in this AP anyway.

There was one part I left out and will share... everyone gets a new name after the pilgrimage. It’s actually considered a middle name. I still remember mine and it was written on a stone we all got after the decision to stop or go on. It was my full name but it had an extra middle name. I think I should keep it to myself.

Anyway, it was a big night and it taught me a lot about traveling and existing for hours lucidly in the astral. But mostly it taught me not to complain too much about my little problems. Amen.

I'm a 3d artist... here is one I made tonight.


Last night I APed twice. I was set on finding some companionship. The first time out I found a beautiful girl but woke up before I could close the deal.
I watched some tv and then tried again. The moon was out and full. It was so darn pretty. I flew over the rooftops. After visiting a nice lighted house I found a girl inside who was very willing. And this time I definitely closed the deal. Astral Love and Sex is so darn excellent sometimes. Much better than the real thing. When it works it's like the ultimate magic. I think it's one of my favorite things about APing... that being astral girls.  :-) Sometimes I talk to them afterwards and try to get some information... this particular girl was dreaming and some Power hooked us up!  :-o What is that power that hooks up hot lovers in the night? hehe

Well, mostly lately I’ve been APing and hooking up. There is a lot to learn if you want to have a good sexual experience in the astral especially for boys. It’s tough to complete an engagement and have a good climax if you haven’t trained yourself for it.

I’ve also been learning about dreams and astral phenomena. They are two different things as I have come to realize. For the longest time I didn’t know if the astral was a real place. Sometimes I thought it was all some kind of lucid dream. However, as I see it now... the astral environment is a real place but we are dreamers and can manipulate the environment there. This also goes for the people.  There are real people but they bring their dreams with them so sometimes they are disguised. You really never know who you’re talking to. You can also project to the physical waking world and that’s where you’re invisible to everyone.

Man, there is so much to learn and I’ve barely scratched the surface. On a positive note, I’m getting real good at flying around and floating. I think negative energy makes you heavy so I’m glad I’m finally “shedding those extra pounds”.

Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be done with this sexual phase soon... but like I said there is so much to learn and I want to be good at it because the rewards are pretty amazing.

Until later. :)

Last night I had a real nice AP. It started with me getting out of body and walking out my front door. Even though it was 3 am in the real world, outside it was more like evening and it was a beautiful day. I felt like walking so I followed my sidewalk to a beautiful park. Everything was so green and there was a refreshing breeze which is rare. There where lots of people there enjoying the park. I sat on a swing set and just took it all in.

But it was getting kind of late. These two Boy Scouts came around and said the park was closing. Everyone was making their way to the entrance. I followed the crowd and started walking picking a path at random. I passed some kind of university, and the Boy Scouts headquarters which was odd. I passed a water park where I spent some time too. Then I found a movie theater with like 20 new movies showing. The posters where dazzling and I went in and watched part of a movie. It was about a girl and a boy on a hill and they where saying goodbye for the last time. The colors where absolutely brilliant and the screen was huge.

After awhile I seemed to forget I was APing and just wanted to go home. But I couldn’t find my way. I asked directions from two more Boy Scouts and they gave me a ride in their cool car. We picked up some fast food which was free on the way. Then they dropped me off at my astral home. Things finally started to look familiar. I went in and woke up.

Now here is the strange part... after waking up in the morning I make some coffee and go say good morning to my Mom. She’s up and going through some of my childhood photos. She says, “Look hun, this is when you where little.” She hands me a photo of me as a Boy Scout. Whoa! I felt like I was still dreaming. In fact maybe I didn’t make it back all the way to waking on that last one. Anyway, definitely kinda deja vu.

I know this is a bit late to the discussion, but I wanted to touch on the above.  In my opinion, it was never really there to begin with.  Remember, all of this is an illusion and your physical body is all part of it.
You're just realizing that you are not your physical body.  You may have understood this on the Intellectual level... but now you're starting to understand this on the Being level.  You've experienced being aware without your physical body so often that you're probably thinking a lot less "physical" these days and it's beginning to have a further impact upon your growth.   :)

A few things to report from last night. I found a new way of exiting... I fell asleep and when I was ready to exit well, I just opened my eyes and I was outside my house. I didn’t need to exit my body, or get out of bed, I just sorta translocated. I’m gonna try it again tonight if I can.

Anyway, as soon as I was outside I took a look around my neighborhood. It was nighttime and the regular houses had been replaced by row and row of bars and restaurants. It was a festive atmosphere and I could hear some tune playing in the air.

What I did next was sort of explore. I went all the way down the street to where the road meets the main avenue. As soon as I got there, there where no lights, no activity, a dead zone. It felt like all the life was gone. It was so eerie. I was kinda spooked seeing that empty street. I went back to where the bars were having their party and I went inside one. There where some people at the bar and the tables. I sat down on a stool and started talking to this dude who offered me a cigarette. This was my second astral cigarette and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Much more real and tasty than a real cigarette.

I woke up soon after that.

Just a quick one... very rarely does "easy" make you any progress. 
That's part and parcel for why this physical reality (and ones like it) lends itself to being a "consciousness growth fast tracker" in spiritual pursuits.  :)

Post by: shineling on March 19, 2020, 17:20:48
Huge AP this time - a real game changer. It made clear a lot of things that have been dogging me for a long time.

I APed and exited my house. Outside it was nighttime and I was a bit disappointed because it was that pitch darkness encroaching again. What is this dark darkness? What is its nature? I actually think it’s an astral plane that borders the physical. It’s so easy to get into because it’s so close. So a lot of new APers will exit there.

Anyway, this is what happened last night... I stood there outside my house just looking at that scary darkness and I started walking down the street looking for some kind of light. In the darkness I saw something move. It was a shadow being. It was wreathed in blackness and darker than the surroundings. It was following me. I stepped up my pace and that’s when I saw another shadow being and another coming from the sides. I stopped and stood my ground - I prepared to fight.

I felt this vile and raw aggression come for me and that’s when it happened. It started in my feet... this glow of pure light entered from my foot chakras and made its way up my legs to my spine to my head. It kept pouring into me this Light until my hands where charged with it and I felt robust with energy.

All this time, the shadows had just stood there staring at me but when I stomped my foot with my new power they startled and two of them ran off. The last one kept it’s cool but took a few steps back.

At the top of my lungs I yelled at it. “Leave me alone!!!” It croaked something I barely understood... something like, “It doesn’t belong to you.” Then it ran off into the creepy darkness.

Anyway, I woke up right after that. But I have never had a reaction like that. My energy body just reacted and what bloomed inside me was this pure light. It was so good to feel and I’m so relieved that I have these defenses at hand just in case it happens again.

What a night!

Why would you need defenses against something that is harmless? In a previous post I believe you referred to these shadow entities as harmless. Did  their energy signatures change over time?

I hope I am not coming across as being critical, I really enjoy reading about your experiences, it was just something I noticed that seems like a contradiction.

Title: Re: shineling’s APs
Post by: shineling on April 20, 2020, 16:39:50
Not sure really... my body just reacted. It was involuntary. My astral body. Maybe it sensed that they where a danger. Maybe they are harmless... they just needed to stay away from me. Sometimes there are different types of shadow people. Some can be harmless and some go the way of the vampire. Anyway... I sure wish they would leave me alone.

Not much going on except more astral television. I've sat with several groups of astral entities and watched a show. In the show we're all characters and we're all playing parts. Kinda like co-video (no relation). It's fascinating seeing it all play out and how the story evolves from everyone's imagination. But it's not really imagination it's like from a person's dream essence. Somehow the upper dreamer takes over and gives you a show. It's totally cool this astral video thing... especially in groups.

Also, lately I have been having dreams of operating on people who are sick. I go into these trenches or transy dream where I am fixing people from the inside. It feels like the Light but it's kinda raw and in your face sorta fixing everything. Kinda like a plastic reality but not exactly plastic... it's like quanta reality. I'm having a lot of strange things come in. I don't know if its because of the times or what but definitely a change in the wind of my astral.

Post by: shineling on April 26, 2020, 19:13:22
I think there’s a pattern beyond normal reality that is indeed having an effect. All reality is One and something is intersecting right now. You can catch glimpses of this pattern when you are in the astral sometimes when you are lucid enough.

I had an astral dream the night my cat got run over. These advanced angels or something came down from a spaceship and told me very rough times where ahead and to prepare for some kind of long term hardships. I did not really think too much of it until lately.

Then there are the numbers kicking in with synchronicity. You’ll see special numbers at coincidental times and realize there’s a pattern. I’ve been working on the numbers here: (

One last thing to report which is super neat is that I’ve been seeing a lot of my Dad in the astral and he’s been dead 5 years. He is always happy and comforting so that’s been the best part of astral travel lately.

I’m having these APs were I’m moving from place to place. This is achieved through some kind of highway network through the astral. It gets very crowded sometimes with all kinds of people moving through the astral.

I’ve seen highways that are full of super modern cars going at break neck speed and it’s so astrally that you can tell it’s real. I’ve also been in tunnels with people moving on foot. There are all kinds I guess. It’s just like a street network but in the astral.

Post by: shineling on May 04, 2020, 11:39:07
About an hour ago I woke up from a nice AP. I got out of body and off my bed and decided this time to explore my home and not go outside. The funny thing, after some exploring, is that my house in the astral was a luxurious house. It had three levels and my backyard was huge. And I could change things just by squeezing my fist. Things would transform into whatever I wanted and I seemed to have quite an imagination in the astral.

The backyard was full of neighbors having a bbq. I went out and joined them. We started talking but they all wanted to come in my house and check it out. So in they came against my wishes. Up the stairs and into my room where they lay down on the bed and fell asleep. Well, I woke them up and asked them to leave but they complained that my house was the best and they didn’t want to go home. I offered to show them how to transform their own houses... so off we went to their house. There where like three of them, two boys and a girl.

It took about half an hour per house... in a few ways it was an exhausting AP. We found a trapped ghost in one house - the girl’s - where a little girl lived in her closet. She didn’t speak and we couldn’t make her leave so we gave her some pillows and a blanket and left her be. We continued to make their houses really beautiful and luxurious over the next hours

After we were done with their houses which they did a great job on I came back to my house to find it in it’s regal state. There was an elevator in the lobby which didn’t used to be there so I took it to my third floor room and got into bed and went to sleep in my astral bed. Ahhhh, a job well done.

I think I slept for another hour dreaming about huge rooms with nebulas and galaxies in them.

The End.

Hope you liked that one.  :-)

I had an interesting experience last night. I was sort of meditating in my large bean bag and I must of fallen asleep. I then became lucid and knew I was in the astral. I sorta lifted my upper body and then noticed that gravity was very low and drifted up and up into a black sky. It was expansive and I had a crystal clarity of this immense room I drifted up into.

There where voices in that silence that got more pronounced until I could hear thousands of voices talking over each other.  Then voices became so numerous they became a white hum that had form and feeling. And then that ocean of awareness touched me on my left foot and sort of attached itself to my foot chakra. It was a weird feeling but very pleasant. Extremely pleasant actually. It felt like my foot was being massaged from the inside by the whole world.

I woke up and my foot was still humming with energy. It lasted like 20 minutes and then it faded. But for awhile there it felt like... like... I had a hook-up to the cosmic internet and it plugged right into my foot. My foot was full of this amazing holy energy and awareness. I don’t even have the words to describe this feeling but it hummed and just as it was affecting me, I could also affect it. It felt like someone had put a piece of pure Love right up my foot. So weird!

Last night I had a lucid AP about my deceased father. We were at the family farm which is his favorite place to be and where he retired. We were sitting on the porch looking out toward the forested ravine where the orange groves are. I was totally lucid and here was my chance to talk to him finally.

I asked him if he knew he had died? And he said that of course he remembered his death. He went on to say that he had passed some kind of judgement or review of his life before he had been allowed to come here at the “farm”. He said that he was definitely not dead in the sense of nonexistance - that he had awareness and that he was learning how to exist in this new reality.

I really hope that this AP was not just a dream I dreamed to console myself that my father was not really dead. But now more than ever I think maybe he really is out there at the farm, drinking his beers and tending his orange groves.  :-) so I hope so anyway.

Wow,. This is a really really great thread... and this last entry made me wanna cry for just a moment,. I really can’t wait to meet some of my passed loved ones.

Thank you for posting such beautiful journeys,. I wanna be able to stay out longer, I get kind of excited and get ahead of myself instead of tying myself to the scenery by researching the surroundings, like is recommended,.

I’ve only just jumped to the last page of entries still have to go back and read this thread from the very beginning to get caught up.

There are several regulars here that I would love to read their journals or memorable AP’s this is the first I’ve stumbled across,. After I’ve had my fill with this thread, any recommendations of others threads on AP experience stories?

That was beautiful Shineling. I hope that at least in part this episode has given you some closure on your father. <Hugs you>

Hey, thanks for visiting my thread and thank you for the kind words!

Well, I’m pretty much self taught but when I was first getting started I did read all of Robert Monroe’s books about APing and OOBE. That’s where I first learned about the “roll-out” technique and I still use it sometimes to this day. When you lay down, get ready to sleep, and when you’re ready, you just sort of roll-out of your body to one side. The way I learned APing was by taking naps during the daytime. It’s more likely then that you’ll reach that zone where you are half-asleep and half-awake. That’s the trick... you have to be a little lucid before sleep catches up with you and then you just roll out.

Well, thanks again for visiting! Good luck to both of you on your journeys!  :-)

A few nights ago I found myself in Dharmaville... There was space above and below. It was quiet and peaceful... and poignant. This sense of poignancy led my own mind to create fantastical realms full of people and voices. I wondered if this was abomination the kind often spoken of in Dune or the brunt of all my mind's maras. It all seemed to stem from a claustrophobic mind which I slowly took a hold of and talked it down to a whisper. Then the Dharma was beheld in full and it was a comforting kind of space, welcoming and honest where none of my mind could be hidden.

I got to explore the blackness a little more... mostly I just was tired of fearing it so when I next saw it I just started walking down the street into the dark.  What I saw in the darkness was that it got darker but at the same time it came with a great clarity that it was Empty because it needed to be so clear. The darkness was dark not because of evil or negative emotion ... it was dark because reality was so clear and  sane.

Then also lately I’ve been having APs of group parties with these cool people I meet. Sometimes it feels like I’ve known them before. We drink, we smoke, and cigs and alcohol feel even better in the astral. I wonder if there’s health consequences in the astral... but I think not.

That 3D darkness has teachings as well. I love just basking in it. It's so peaceful and tranquil. A great place to ponder and many times your ponderings will be answered in some way, shape or form.

 You need to rid yourself of the brainwashing throughout your life that the "darkness" is evil.

Thanks Lumaza. Yeah... there is something very peaceful about the darkness but it still scares me a little. What I liked was that it’s a very calming place which brings a strong stability and sane frame of mind. Since there’s nothing going on in the darkness except itself, it’s easy to remain in the moment and be yourself - your true self.

Cya around.  :-)

It is always encouraging for there to be those who are in the very active phase of the process of awakening ( and going out  - a lot ).

Thank you for keeping this blog, Shineling, it brings back such a fond energy and memory.
