I find that if I use computers before going to bed, I don't sleep as well and I have less REM sleep. Sad

About 4 AM in the morning after about 45 minutes of active meditation, relaxation and 'exit' techniques and after experiencing the pre out of body vibrations and the accompanying shift of awareness only to have my logical and critical mind hanging me up.
      So I decided to roll over onto my side and use the natural going to sleep mechanism to trigger the out of body/astral travel reflex. It worked amazingly! The vibrations started again and I shifted my legs downwards like the night before. I remember hanging there for a few seconds in the darkness, like I was hanging over a cliff nearly. So after I figured out I was stuck, I slide out completely and drifted down for a short time. It felt quite comfortable, a warm sinking feeling into the pitch darkness. I then waited for a scene to Appear. A few objects and scenes appeared in this blackness until suddenly....!
         I was in a large building full of cheerful colors and a happy atmosphere. The room was full of children's toys, a playground and other like fun activities and things. Off to the right there were a few kids happily playing Smiley Then I did what I had thought about the night before. I knelt down and said, "I humbly ask for the assistance and guidance of my guides."

Immediately, from a nearby room, came two children. One was a girl the other a boy. One of them said to something along these lines to me, " follow us now if you like and watch the passing of a soul from a dying child". On a side note, maybe this was a orphanage and the child had been sick? Anyhow I immediately followed the two children as they ran quite fast out the exit. I ran behind and was quite winded until I reminded myself that I wasn't in my body and wasn't restricted with its limitations. I moved faster then. Outside the building we were traveling for a time along a  cement footpath with a roof over the top. Those twins were so fast so I started doing massive kangaroo jumps, flying between jumps.  One of the twins looked up with a amused chuckle.

We came to a park where the infant was swathed up and sickly. A group of people surrounded the child. The twins and I joined the circle sitting cross legged. There were two old guys there sitting in the circle smoking pipes.

The events that followed next are a little unfortunate as I think I messed up what would have been an interesting experience. There was an middle aged lady next to me with grey shoulder length  hair. She asks me where I was from and what I was doing here. I struggled to find the right answers and then she says, "Oh, you're a traveler". I tell her more or less that I'm here to experience and understand spiritual questions and answers. She scoffs at me and laughs harshly saying something along the lines of, "oh, you're with that group". I was confused and put off and this, I guess, made me lose control and the scene faded and I woke up.

Breathing, while out of body, never entered my mind in my experiences until I added a reality check in for dream consciousness. Then a short time later I did the reality check in my dreams, breathing through my pinched nose.

A noble goal, indeed.  Unfortunately, to "map" the "inner planes" seems to be quite the impossible task as I doubt you'll find many people who agree with your particular map.
In that same breath, I also understand the need to dig out the material that has been poorly understood... to which, in my opinion, is MOST of it.

People look at the non-physical in entirely the wrong perspective, and as a result, our understanding (or lack thereof) of the non-physical is sorely inadequate.  This goes for the average non-physical adventurer as much as it does for most of the scientific community.

Otherwhere has a lot of after-death zone material in it too -great stuff!  What did you think of The Unanswered Question?  Like it?  Love it?

Yeah, I could probably read MH over and over for the rest of my life and still just scratch the surface!

I read the Unanswered Question (along with Otherwhere, and Multidimensional Human). 

In this book Kurt Leland explores the afterlife,  crossreferencing three main ancient works- the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the works of Emanuel Swedenborg, the christian mystic, and comparing them to modern NDE reports and puts them in the framework of his own experiences and system.
I consider it to be a scholarly work, in that he does what others haven't, and is to compare the buddhist and egyptian works, and if you have ever read any work on the Egyptian book of the Dead you know how obscure and frankly, subjective it is.  He gives the excellent historical account about how the (Egyptian) 'books' came to be one book today and how they were translated and interpreted.
He also takes his experiences and describes them in  terms of the works discussed, which I found fascinating.  Many other people who read the books preferred the parts where he goes into his personal experiences, which of course are always fascinating, but my favorite parts were the descriptions of the ancient works, and how he reconciles all of them from the point of view of a projector.
I give it two thumbs up, it's (so far) my favorite of Kurt's books.

To add - it seems to me that Leland's mission and contract here in this lifetime is to help map the inner planes, and also to dig out of the woodwork some of the material on this that has been lost, fallen to disuse, or poorly understood. Thus he devotes a great deal of time rooting out and republishing the theosophy writings of earlier writings.

Actually all of Kurt's books except Multidimensional Human are out of print.  He does realize that getting the earlier ones issued in eBook is a good idea, but so far he hasn't gotten to it.  I 'believe' he is working on another book, but have no idea when it will come out.

I think I have read MH three times now.  There are lots of theosophy links from his website as well.  Plus there are logs of some of his travels on his site. www.kurtleland.com

Multidimensional Human is available from Amazon. I was able to get a copy of Unanswered Question but have not put the bucks out for a second hand copy of "Otherwhere".  I'm hoping it will come out in eBook someday. 

Otherwhere is more or less his early astral travels, and Unanswered Question, written later, is his journeys to the after-death zone. 

Update - I found another post on Kurt here: http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_book_reviews/kurt_leland_books_amp_astral_projection_log-t33199.0.html

To reply, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look to the right - in the blue bar there is a 'reply' button.

I read the Frank posts back when I first found this site.  I should probably read them again -I feel like I forget what I read these days as soon as I put the book down!  I'm gettin' old!  Oh well, I think what I need to hear sinks in somehow and rewires my brain in mysterious ways lol!

soarin12: - Hey - great to find another who has appreciated MH and Otherwhere.  I am in the process of reading the pdf "Frank's Posts" and am really enjoying it.  Much of it reminds me of Lelands travels, ie the discovery/labeling of various zones, meeting 'scamps', etc. Of course they each have their own labels for things, but I can see the similarities and I'm only on page 45.  His posts end up being a good summary of so much I have read elsewhere, but he is in fact in the process of discovering it for himself first hand.  

BluefirePhoenix - Thanks of the added info.  I am prepared to read ALL of the 'Frank's Posts' pdf (which is over 1000 pages) so I trust I will eventually get a good understanding of the phasing and scrying.  I will look for that post on obstacles though because I'm seemingly coming up against a few.  LOL.   I have learned sooo much so far from 'Frank's Posts' and am putting into practice (or intend to) what I am reading.  It's great stuff, and so very practical.  I'm kind of a left brainer too... so his sense of reasoning things out really appeals to me.

AND I am originally from Nova Scotia.... well.. let me re-phrase that.  Once from NS always from NS - so it's really where I call home.   I was married to a Caper once (from Sydney Mines).  Where are you?

Can someone tell me how to 'reply' here.  I see 'Quote', but no reply button.  It it meant that we should use the quote button instead.  It's the only way I was able to respond here .....I just deleted the quoted part.
