how long do you meditate, and how often? also, what method do you use in order to have these experiences? I used to meditate every day for a few years, then stopped. it was vipassana method by following my breath, with eyes closed next to a candle. now I got back into it, and meditate almost every night with a Samatha method staring at a candle's flame.

I remember when I was stuck when I first started to have OBEs. once I started trying the 'roll out' method, it was super easy from then on. rolling out was THE easiest method to leave my body. but now... IT STOPPED WORKING! it is probably the HARDEST method now. The rope technique, which was the hardest, is now the easiest, but it doesn't work most times, so it still is hard.

here is what happens. Vibrations come > I am in my body looking at the ceiling > right away I could see through my physical eyes and with my astral ones into the astral world. Things look different. I could even lift my astral arms up slowly and move them around; sometimes fast just like I would in the physical world. But I am stuck within my physical body. it's almost as if I am in a sleep paralysis mode, but 1) I could move my arms, and 2) I could wake up anytime. Rolling out doesn't work. It's almost as if I am glued to my body. I even tried levitating last time. Nothing. I just feel the bed beneath my back. Maybe it's because I have fear. I don't know. the only thing I could do is visualize levitating, visualize the rope technique, visualize, but it doesn't work. I feel like I need to literally do something with my astral body in order to project, but I am stuck.

I also have a theory that my spirit guides want me to master leaving my body, which I haven't yet. I think many times they yanked me out, so it wasn't me doing it. And many times when I leave my body by rolling out, I am only conscious of my OBEs around 30%, not like being in a physical body. Maybe once I really learn how to leave my body thoroughly, my consciousness in OBEs will go up, or even be 100%? anybody ever had that experience? because dreamy OBEs suck, and at some point I lose awareness and start dreaming.

takin a nap after I come from work works the best. Something about sleeping during a day makes my body automatically wake up within 3 hours. and after that I can't sleep again for a while. this only happens during the day at around 6 or 7pm... I'd wake up around 9 or 10 by default. If I were to go to sleep at night, that would be a different story...

I'm glad that resonated with you Loosh!

You are going through some of the same experiences and have instinctively come up with the best 'shadow people' responses by simply commanding them to dismiss themselves. Beautifully done!

The UFO/alien imagery strikes me as an archetype that your subconscious is using to get your attention, to get you lucid, a Dream Trigger. There may be more of a connection but only you can determine that; but don't get too carried away with this.

The 'hat men' and 'shadow people' that you encounter in SP are entirely normal, figments of your subconscious to literally spook you. This is a Fear Test; you will get them from time to time and in many forms. Further Tests involve the sexual urge, patience, frustration, anger, problem-solving...etc. Just 'notice' them, stay calm and ignore them and they will lose any power they may have. Go with the flow. Your instinct to move away from your physical is exactly right until you decide how to stay and fight this fight (which is to NOT fight at all).

No one is watching you sleep or messing with your dreams...except maybe some Guide(s).

The earlier posts and theories you discussed that I was referring to involved Tulpas and thoughtforms. You recognized that the people you encountered were not your mother and brother. They were likely thoughtforms, and the "We consume souls while humans sleep" sounds to me like a classic line churned out by your subconscious, again a Fear Test. A good one! That would get my attention too! You had a brief bout of fear but rebounded with the love-energy protection command and this ended the experience.

JMO but the reason you had the dream, awoke in a False Awakening, and faced various fear episodes was all a learning experience. And you did well, you passed!

Someone gave you a Lesson.




Oh that is gold. Thank you!

When I first started projecting, I had no body.  I was a single point of consciousness.  Then I went on the forums for the first time, and realized that most people who are new to AP have a body when they project.  I decided I was missing out and that I wanted a body too.  That thought and desire was all it took, and the next time I projected, I had a body.  After several months of experiencing that, I decided to go back to formless again. (I do both now)

I'm fairly sure the reason I started out bodiless is because the spiritual beliefs I was raised with were that when one leaves the physical, they will have no form.  It was a very strong notion in my mind.

You get whatever you think out there.

Waking up like that takes a lot of instant willpower to fight off the urge just to roll over and go back to sleep.

Have you tried affirmations?

Set your alarm across the room so you have to get up to turn it off; then stay up for twenty minutes or more.

Hi,
Over last week one of the days I awoke consciously in the middle of my sleep between three and four times. I was too tired / didn't focus on the techniques within those wake ups. Does anybody have any tips on how to wake up consciously in the middle of sleep like the book (the phase from obe4u) says? Do I just need to have a strong intention?

Thanks.
