What a great story, Nameless! These experiences and realizations are truly priceless. Same goes for me. When I discovered so may people being interested in these topics, I felt even more empowered, the power of the collective consciousness if you will. That was about 20 years ago, when I joined the original William Buhlman forum. Unfortunately, there were too many trolls causing trouble and the forum was closed. Then I found the Pulse packed with such a great information and members support.

Nameless,

Sorry, but this is a little late…Welcome to the Pulse!  HaHa!  I didn’t realize you have been a member here for such a short time.  Sounds like you have had a lifetime of experiences already especially with all the Beings you have met.  Not your first Rodeo…or shall I say Galaxy Quest.

I have lurked around this site for awhile before I finally joined about 4 1/2 years ago.  I certainly haven’t had the tour of the Galaxy yet but I am consistently adding notches to my travel belt mostly within this past year. 

Many thanks to you and all the great members here!

This is more observations.

I find that I cannot hold on to it. It just slips right through my hands and it seems so fast because there is so much interesting. The astral is a marvelous place that for me has so much to do with the individual. Like for example, I found a new part of myself when I started Aping. He’s like my dreamer and he is me just on another soul level. He knows the astral intimately and is always taking me to new places in this deep story which is the soul. It’s very interesting to me finding out that I am part of this never ending story which is life and astral.

I find myself asking questions like what if the stories are true and we can escape reality by slipping into the crack that goes to the astral? Sounds like a great adventure.  smiley

Wow, it's been over five years now. I will tell you all, old and new, that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I came looking for one specific answer and wound up finding answers to many questions I didn't even know how to articulate.

Sometimes I feel like the song "A Day Late and A Dollar Short
' was written for me but should have been titled "A Few Decades Late with a Hole in My Pocket". grin

So I thought it might be interesting to update this after reading my thoughts back then. So what exactly have I learned in the 5+ years of friendships here on the Pulse. I've learned that I truly not alone. I've always felt that way but wondered if I would ever be proven right as seldom did I ever run into anyone with these interests beyond just a mild curiosity.

It's funny to me that pretty much my entire life 'you are not alone' has been my mantra. It's the thing I've always told people when they were most especially struggling at the bottom of the pool. I can't even say why I have always felt that way just that I have. Maybe it was just a mantra I pick up in self-defense when I myself felt lost. But time goes by and one day you realize you have all the proof you will ever need.

So what has changed for me personally since joining? One, I'm a whole lot less anxious about life in general. My fears have completely evaporated and that is huge as I thought I had already dealt with them. Turns out there is always still a little crud hiding somewhere. Who knows there still might be a little but it's okay, I have my handy-dandy ultra-dimensional toothbrush handy. With a little astral toothpaste anything can be cleaned and whitened. smiley

I've met the most interesting people here and the most interesting 'others' through my interactions it's really mind boggling.

I've met
Horse Heads (lol)
Mantis
Tall Greys
Short Greys
Reptilians'
Tall Blondes
Terrestrial Blondes
Human Extraterrestrials
and others I don't even know how to describe like
Cow People
Stick People that remind me of trees
Elementals
and probably some I missed.

It's been an adventure yall. With so many more to come. So THANK YOU ALL. HUGS!!!

It's more than that, Perspective! **Artemis is strongly associated with deer**

Hey GR,
Weird coincidence happened to me yesterday. I didn’t think anything of it until I put the pieces together this morning…

I was driving home last night and about a quarter way home “the art of dreaming” audio book just finished up so I started the Faerie Realm book. I remember when I was finishing Castinada’s book because I was turning a corner onto another country road. Once I started the next book probably about 2 minutes into the book on the same road I saw 2 deer running away around some corn fields.

Now I know I live in Ontario Canada (and I know the stereotypes around that lol), but I honestly haven’t seen deer here in probably about 10 years. And I’ve been going down this same road to my job for almost a year now. I’ve seen them when I crossed the border into the US about 3-4 years ago, but not in Ontario.

Just thought it is interesting as a book on nature spirits just started and I see 2 deer running…

Hope you enjoy that little story. It shocked me haha!

To me there is no failure of any kind the way characters perceive it. I "see" and "sense" at every waking moment the entire multiverse's living pulse, magnificence and power, and I see myself as a part of every point of consciousness there is. Of course as a character, I go through momentums of pain, disappointment, as this is natural while limited, but I bounce back very quickly and my default mode remains as incredible happiness and joy. I wish everyone can reach this realization.

That's a good read.

Yes agreed. With that absence of a sense of failure our resistance to what is drops away. The need to go towards experience switches to allowing experience to come to you.

I like your line about the 'living pulse'. That felt sense of awareness that is often in the background of experience can start to make its way to the foreground of experience so much so it becomes the dominant experience in a world of objects.

I think the human experiences you mention like pain or disappointment help cement the true reality by providing a contrasting backdrop. The subtlety of being can be overlooked without the presence of contrasting values.

And in so doing happiness starts to arise. A happiness without cause. That's the best kind.

And that's all we ever truly desired in the first place.

Very true, floriferous! I have been experiencing the happiness without a reason for many years now. Initially I thought that my brain must be producing excessive amounts of dopamine naturally (I have never used drugs or alcohol to enhance mood), but then I realized that this happiness is a result of my understanding of the multiverse and the purpose of existence, the nature of the soul and the oneness. That knowing gives me comfort and peace. To me there is no failure of any kind the way characters perceive it. I "see" and "sense" at every waking moment the entire multiverse's living pulse, magnificence and power, and I see myself as a part of every point of consciousness there is. Of course as a character, I go through momentums of pain, disappointment, as this is natural while limited, but I bounce back very quickly and my default mode remains as incredible happiness and joy. I wish everyone can reach this realization.

Reframing thoughts can click in new ways, so...

In this moment you are witnessing the field of experience and this experience is made up of thinking, sensing, and perceiving. No objects. Just a simple flow of experiencing.

When mind arises it claims personal ownership of a small fraction of this experience and labels it me and labels everything else not me. In so doing it creates a subject/object relationship where there isn't one. The whole field of experience was only always ever you.

So instead of one seamless experience that you, the presence of awareness is witnessing, what we now have is awareness seemingly contracting down into a narrow focus and thinking itself to be a limited physical subject surrounded by a world of external objects.

And then we go - off into the world trying to find our self like a fish in the ocean in search of water.

Every appearance is an appearance of yourself. There is nothing new to find. It doesn't require any doing or going anywhere or finding anything.  It only requires you to see through the misperception by exploring your direct experience right now. As you do so, the walls of misperception slowly start to crumble. And in so doing happiness starts to arise. A happiness without cause. That's the best kind.

And that's all we ever truly desired in the first place.

Perspective: you're welcome! You may also want to try connecting with nature spirits. This book on communicating with nature spirits and elements may be interesting for you:

https://www.amazon.com/Enchantment-Faerie-Realm-Communicate-Elementals/dp/0875420028

Also, the book, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (by psychoanalyst and storyteller Clarissa Pinkola Estes) may help you connect with your inner wild Artemis (it's honestly a good read for all genders!)

Thank you for the recommendations. I’ll definitely check these books out. They are on Audible too. Bonus!
