1  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Can someone recommend a good meditation video? on: April 09, 2015, 06:21:03
OK so I want to send a friend of mine some good and short meditation videos. I only have one so far, but I want more. Do any of you have any links to a video that is short and sweet about the personal benefits of meditation?

Thanks.

Does anyone know where I can find this video at? Or even where it's located in a long video?
3  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: My search for Frank Kepple. on: April 08, 2015, 03:43:39
I've read Franks posts after he pasted away. I tend to think that you likely just missed his death information somewhere out there, but that doesn't mean that he never existed. There would be no reason for him to fake his name on here unless he was previously in trouble with the law, in which case who cares, he still provided valuable information for us about astral projection.
4  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Demystifying the out of body experience book question? on: April 08, 2015, 02:58:32
Xanth are you saying there is no truth in what he is saying?
5  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Demystifying the out of body experience book question? on: April 08, 2015, 01:53:59
For instance he gives different names for the different types of bodies.

Here is a list of words you have probably heard before.

Soma: Physical body
Energosoma or Holochakra: Energetic body or Etheric body
Psychosoma: Emotional or astral body
Mentalsoma: Intellectual body

Then there are the different dimensions.

Physical dimension
Tropospheric or crustal extraphysical dimensions
Proper extraphysical dimensions
Mental dimensions

I don't feel like typing out the definition for those but you get the idea. If you want a definition I will give it to you.

6  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Demystifying the out of body experience book question? on: April 08, 2015, 00:57:22
So I got the book from the library today called Demystifying the out of body experience by Luis Minero and I couldn't help but to notice that they take the out of body experience to a whole new level with detailed definitions of out of body and consciousness things.

Now I know that Xanth doesn't like these types of definitions. Or am I wrong that these definitions do apply to consciousness.

Anybody think these specific definitions are unnecessary? Then there is the work of Waldo Vieira which talks about this even more so I am sure. Personally I think these definitions of consciousness phenomena are very much needed for this seemingly nebulous topic.

Thanks lonewolf and Szaxx. Luckily I am already pretty proficient at meditating. I did end up giving up for a while since I did this post. But that is normal for me as I tend to do that with almost everything I get into. But I always come back to what I was doing. And that is the most important thing. I will try to astral project again today.

I noticed that I could practice meditation and quit for a while then get back into it and almost pick up right where I left off at, so I am assuming that astral projection is the same way for me.

Other than that I tend to believe that belief will only take one so far. The main thing is just doing the exercises.

In any event I will continue my astral projection practice. I did notice that after practicing astral projection for a while that I did get into a deep lucid dream state with vibrations like I never felt before. So I am hoping I can get that same type of effect through practice again.

Sometimes a cake is just a cake.
What's that suppose to mean?
9  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Nightmare, then a false awakening, then vibrations. on: March 25, 2015, 22:29:49
So last night I had a nightmare that someone killed someone else, I saw the dead body, then the killer was holding the body walking with it. I was right next to this mad man and I was scared to death. Then I eventually made it to my door at home. And there was someone there that I thought was out to kill me. The fear in this nightmare was strong. Then I got a false awakening. I could feel my body, and see a silhouette of some windows to my left which aren't there in real life. I thought I had woken up. In reality I was only partially awake. But the interesting thing is that I felt vibrations like I never felt them before. It might have been sleep paralysis too since there was no connection to my waking physical body. If that is the case this would be the first time I ever got sleep paralysis. I was like in a deep realm where the vibrations were occurring. I was just too tired to try a method to get out of body. Though I was lucid enough to remember astral projection. Then I woke up. This is the first time I think I have ever felt vibrations like that. I hope it happens again.

The only thing I have done differently recently besides practicing astral projection was walking. Not sure if that had anything to do with it. I have been sedentary for quite a long time until recently.

Later on I dreamt that I was really sad about how much I messed up in my life, but I had hope for the future.

That's interesting. So if you die during an OBE, you wake up here?

Wonder what happens to those at home in the astral/afterlife if they get killed? Any ideas? Shipped to some other setting?  grin


(Sorry, but if I ask stupid questions, it's because I need to.)
Well within Buddhism they believe that you go to another dimension either higher or lower based on your karma.
11  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Do you want or plan on reincarnating here to the physical again? on: March 16, 2015, 22:38:02
Personally I love my life, though it wasn't always like that, but for the most part I have always loved my self and my life with the good and the bad. If I do reincarnate I would have to feel like it is worth it. Like I don't want to come back for some lame reason, in a messed up life. I will only come back if there is a good chance of overcoming. I know that I am an old soul that has not fulfilled my life's mission unfortunately. But I am still young and plan on making the best of the rest of my time here.

Whether the "astral" is benign or not is entirely up to you.
I believe this is partially true as we are co-creators, and some beings will try to take advantage of you being a co-creator, even if you may not deserve it. There does seem to be a bit of luck involved, just like in the physical.
13  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Are there gangs in the astral? on: March 15, 2015, 06:13:26
In the Astral, I've found, to my experiences only, that when I try to punch someone, something outside of my counscius Will does not allow me, and I always end up finding there is another way.

But regarding pain, I've been stabbed, pierced by thousand needles, limbs weared down to un-use. Have had my legs crushed, half my body paralized, felt the taste of blood running from my face with my mouth. So yes, it all hurts intensely, but it seems that pain just doesnt carry out long enough, and after a while with legs crushed and half of your body pierced, i've only felt numbness, i've too, died slowly there. only to woke up here. lol

I've run into some gangs. but I tend to get away from the seemingly bad ones.
It's experiences like this that make me realize that the astral isn't totally benign all the time.
14  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Do you want or plan on reincarnating here to the physical again? on: March 15, 2015, 01:26:27
So do you want or plan on reincarnating here to the physical again? Is it worth it to you?

Here in this video ABB talks about beings in the afterlife that come across as perceived savors and Gods which trick us into reincarnating into dense matter, when they clearly don't have to. Yet in order for them to ultimately learn they end up coming here over and over until they learn deep down inside of their being what is wrong and right.

Thanks for all of the replies here guys. Cool had some interesting experiences.

Peace.
16  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Are there gangs in the astral? on: March 14, 2015, 11:12:02
Thanks to all you for chiming in.

Think about non-physical experiences like this...

Everything regarding your physical reality experience is, pretty much, the only way you can perceive an experience.  Another way to put it is that you have a preconceived notion of what "experience" is like.  It's physical.  It's what you've been experiencing all your life.  Very rarely do people experience something *different* from this physical reality, because you can't experience something non-physically that you haven't already experienced before in some way, shape or form.  Your experiences are interpreted and formed based upon your previous experiences. 

So the more experiences you have, the greater the pool for your future experiences to be derived from.

If you've experienced "gangs", it's now part of the pool of experience for which your future experiences can be derived from.  So you'll experience something non-physically, and it could pull that "experience" as part of the interpretation of what you're currently experiencing.

Does that make sense?  LoL
So if I gather all that I know about the astral what you and everyone else is saying is that I might run into gangs in the astral if that is what I have dealt with in my past experience but that in general I shouldn't worry about it. But if I get punched it the face, it will feel like a real punch. LOL

And in general there are much more good spirits and gangs/organizations that are good and want to help out people like me than anyone that would want to hurt me.

Did I hit the nail on the head?
17  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Are there gangs in the astral? on: March 13, 2015, 09:07:38
So I asked a question sometime ago about what it would feel like if one got into a fist fight in the astral what it would feel like. And I was told that it would feel like a real fight.

Now knowing there are gangs here in the physical one would think that there would be also gangs in the astral. Groups that ban together to offer protection. What have you astral projectors found about this? Are there gangs in the astral and what do they have to offer?

Thanks.
18  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: A good side of effect of practicing astral projection. on: March 11, 2015, 07:36:48
Thanks for typing all that out. I still likely reread what you have written and keep practicing until I get it or have more questions. So again thanks.
19  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Spiritual Awakening Confusion on: March 11, 2015, 07:33:42
If you feel like you need emotional support by talking to people about spirituality there is a really good website to meet other people of the same beliefs in your area called www.meetup.com check it out and type the interests that you like the most and find local people just like yourself that are on the spiritual path.

benhey-man I practice astral projection, meditate everyday, do visualizations and I also eat meat since I know that that is how our genetics has evolved us. Our genetics says we do best with some meat since our ancestors ate meat. I also plan on do some stand up comedy even. So IMO the spiritual path and a worldly life style aren't mutually exclusive. Meaning there is nothing wrong with mixing them. Though if you insist on eating no meat. Make sure you also eat things to replenish the nutrients in meat you normally can't get in a vegetarian diet. Like vitamin B12. Supplement or not it doesn't really matter.

Other than that I too have struggled through the years to keep a spiritual practice with me. But I still keep coming back since I know that it is really good for me to continue this path.

Peace.
21  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: A good side of efect of practing astral projection. on: March 11, 2015, 02:20:12
I got another question Soki. Where do you feel like you close your inner eye's? I think I was only able to moderately close my inner eye's when I focused really hard on my third eye and especially my crow chakra, while also squinting my eye's. Though I did get pretty deep, I still have a ways to go until I can get where you were at.

I have thoughts about using very small amounts of marijuana in order to help me get into my body. IDK if I will actually do that. Regardless if I will do that or not I still have a lot of work ahead of me.
22  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: A good side of efect of practing astral projection. on: March 10, 2015, 22:28:36
First of all thanks for writing that out. It helps a bit to understand how to do this. I am eager to try it out. Though I suppose I shouldn't get my hopes up too high.

Once you did it once, stabilise your new inner position, take the time to get used to being that deep, and when you can maintain it without coming back up to the middle of your head, make the action of closing your inner eyes again.........
Can you explain this more, about coming back up to the middle of your head?
23  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: A good side of efect of practing astral projection. on: March 10, 2015, 06:18:33
I'll reread it and see if there are some parts I would like to be translated. It might take me a while. Other than that I know kind of what your talking about with moving you consciousness around your body. Though I haven't gotten that far. Since most of my consciousness is still mind based. Meaning I haven't been able to clearly stabilize my consciousness in my body yet. I do remember once I was lacking sleep and I went to meditate my energetic arms got really really big. I could feel them expand. From what I read the astral body does this every night in order to absorb cosmic energy. That is why some people don't use beds with springs since supposedly the springs prevent the astral body from fully expanding.

I know of a spiritual master named Xan that can feel into her heart. The heart actually has a magnetic field of 10 feet or so. And she can feel into her heart space. That is what I want to eventually be able to do.
24  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: A good side of efect of practing astral projection. on: March 09, 2015, 23:16:49
That link is a really good one. Though I wish it was in English. I had to use google translate to read it and I still had trouble here and there reading it. Other than that I really liked the article. The part of him talking about using internal music to guild oneself inward reminds me of inner sound current meditation.
