The OP probably isn't still around but I'll throw in my two cents anyway.

All serious esoteric systems or mystery schools ultimately teach the same thing:  what you have "inside" you determines what you experience "outside" of you.  So, as within, so without, or more commonly expressed as "as above, so below."  This is what Hinduism gets to, esoteric sects of Buddhism, various European schools of esotericism, Kabbalah, Hawaiian Huna, etc.  They all have different ways of talking about and take different amounts of time to zoom in on this idea, but it's what they all get at.

This is the basis of all real "magic," though I've read books like Kraig's "Modern Magick" that dance all around this basic truth without ever coming to fully grasp it.  So these people will teach you things like rituals and spells.  Rituals and spells will only work to the extent that they change your own experience of reality, and they really aren't necessary if you can change your consciousness without needing rituals or ceremonies or spells.  For some people though they're good for doing this and that's fine, what difference does it make?

Everyone is a "magician" and most people don't even realize it.  The contents of your consciousness determine what appears to be "outside" of you.  "In reality" nothing is inside or outside of you.  They are two sides of the same coin, or more accurately they are both one side and all sides of the same coin simultaneously: the only side this "coin" actually has.  Inside and outisde are united.  They only seem to be separate, and this is part of the big illusion of living in a physical body.  But when you realize that they are united then you can generally see how people create positive lives for themselves, create misery for themselves, or grasp more firmly the mystery that they live in.

If you want to move in a positive direction, fill your consciousness with things that seem positive to you, however you define positive to be.  If you worry all the time you'll only find more things to worry about, because that's all that will be on your mind and will be all that you look for.  If you want to bring a spiritual mystery into your life, find things that seem mysterious to you, and fill your consciousness with those and incorporate them into the way you live.  When you do these things, first it changes how you see things and what it's like "inside" of you.  Then the "outside" universe sees this coming out of you and responds to reflect it accordingly.  It's a lot like a feedback loop.

Welcome back.  Smiley  I'm not from Ukraine but I have a friend who is from Kharkov and now is studying in Moscow.

I hear it's very beautiful over that way.

I just wanted to point out quickly that ANY "magick" caster worth their salt wouldn't DARE call themselves a "Warlock".
Don't listen to Hollywood... they're a bunch of idiots trying to make money off stuff.

In gaelic, the word "warlock" is loosely translated to mean "oathbreaker".  Basically... liar.

Do you really want to call yourself that?
NOBODY serious in Magick would call themselves that.

I got possibly the furthest I've ever been on my first attempt of the week 2 nights ago. Unfortunately I was unable to write about it yesterday so my memory may be a little foggy by now.

An account as best I can recall
I awoke after a little over 2 sleep cycles. As usual I lay face up, as Robert Bruce recommends, and tried to relax as much as possible. Vibrations and a background din came on straight away. Within no more than 2 minutes I seemed to lose awareness of my body and there was a feeling of moving through a tunnel, which I've never had so strongly before. Once I came out, IIRC, my body felt different (perhaps now it was my energy body I was feeling) and I noticed I could separate from the physical more easily. I then tried to do so using the rope technique, but never got out.

Tweaks made to the method I use
  • Following justin35ll's excellent advice, I tried to avoid becoming aware of my surroundings upon waking up.
  • I kept my handheld alarm in bed with me just within reach so I wouldn't have to reach into the drawer of my bedside locker for it when it goes off (I find the ticking a little irritating).

I'll make another attempt this week with these tweaks and try to jot down my memories of it ASAP. Then I'll review both attempts and see if I can improve my general approach/method or if it's simply a matter of gaining more experience.

Thank you justin35ll!

I have that happen sometimes my physical heart reacts to the energy being raised especially if it's a strong surge.  In this there is no normal it depends on whats happening and it's all subjective in nature. The continued deeping focus needs to continue unwavering.

Thanks for answers, I don't have any of those luxuries such as a heart monitor or someone that can check my pulse while I'm APing to check if it's my physical heart or not. I guess I have to just continue and not stop doing it, because I think I was close to actually doing it...

And as always try not to have fears.

I've researched a little by myself on the rapid heart beats, and it seem to be quite a common symptom, because one is opening the heart chakra so say.

Hello, the Astral Pulse. Today I think I managed to get closest I've been to AP! What happened is that it started with the small "ringing" in my ears, then after maybe 5 min. I started to feel some very strange vibrations in my legs, but here's what I think went wrong. Is it normal that your heartbeat suddenly raise/gets stronger? When I started to feel the heartbeats raise/getting stronger I tried to calm it down, but then I became so concentrated on calming down my heart that I felt like I went out of this trance state where you feel you will disappear or go backwards into yourself or be able to "ascend" (Something like that feeling). I also think I felt one time that it felt like something (almost like something liquid) was pushing my left hand. I think I also felt a twitch too.

I decided I had to wait a little more, after I "snapped out" of it, I now suddenly feel a little cold and my adrenaline is high and a little stiff/slow too (maybe it's the cold). My hands (especially the bottom section of the fingertips) feels really sensitive.


Edit:  It could be that my heart chakra was opening or that I was about to project through my heart chakra, because it felt like it happen instantaneously or something of that sort and my mind felt kind of ready, maybe I got a little surprised, but I don't think I've ever experienced such heartbeats from being "surprised". After I "snapped out" of it, I seem to remember that my heartbeats got back to normal pretty fast and I didn't feel any pain as I remember

hi all, Little_One,

a warlock lives abundance and insight
the magical practice can be reduced to knowing whether or not it lives well, if you are initiated

 for example: choosing to manifest your perfect lover would be as ok as you are "new", because lovers like it spontaneous

you really need to know how things work to be a warlock, or anyone else for that matter

you have aimed for the centre of the haystack when you posted this, but you might shoot an "arrow" to manifest wants.. aim for the target where you are both in the right, and furthering yourself
thats what a warlock did

well i have tried to tell you what a warlock is , maybe just keep at it with abundance and insight?
