1  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: About Prayer on: Yesterday at 03:51:28
If you pray, what would you pray on or about? I would pray for a million dollars.

If you pray, when would you pray? At my bed side at night, and my night light on.

If you pray, what are your expectations when you pray? I expect Zeus to make my lotto balls fall into place.

OK seriously. I don't pray any more. But if I do it would be more of a universalist prayer. That is more like a poem or an affirmation than praying to a guy with a beard up in the sky.

So you're just there.... forever.

It's seems quite impossible to imagine anything like it. From what I've heard, it's supposed to be a blissful state. Let's hope it is
Well that is when you merge with your source after death then yes you could be there forever I suppose. Or what would feel like forever, since time doesn't exist there. But chances are you would end up in a place where your spirit would interact with other consciousnesses after death. And yes the heart of our source is bliss too. Once you enter heart of your source you become bliss. Or as you would say dpk38 the atman merges with Brahman.  grin

I also had a very similar experience when I was mentally ill for about a month suffering from depersonalizatin disorder. And during this time I feel asleep on the couch and I woke up cold. And it was as if everything was new to me. Almost like a whole new self was taking the place of my old self. But it didn't feel like I was another person. It just felt like a new consciousness deeper inside of me had to take over from there and get a grip on who I was and where I was. Luckily I got some help and got better but I still remember what happened then.

Also I have doubts that just because someone doesn't remember who they were that that was a walk in. This can be explained by a condition known as amnesia.

There was a guy that committed suicide and there was a Buddhist monk that astral projected and was there when he died and the Buddhist got permission to enter his body, so he did. And after entering his body he got better and even wrote some books about it. I don't remember what the books where called. I found it on a torrent site some years ago.

Also there is a similar story of a guy that did the same thing though he wasn't a Buddhist monk.

Makes me wonder if someone could enter a body of someone that is projecting and take over. It may be possible but hard.

Yeah Bluefirephoenix is right on this. Your the one creating these experiences. You have to let go and stop giving it attention.

I don't think you'll find many people here that believe in any particular religion, only personal experience is the best teacher here. Belief alone is enough to make someone who is very experienced in meditation to get trapped in beliefs/expectations, that is my understanding at least. I believe in Jesus but for me to get too much into it I know ultimately causes me to confine myself to one perspective. Perhaps this is more true for Christians in general than Hindus but you get the idea. BTW I did read that link. I found it interesting but still not sure if I could fully dive in with the whole belief system behind it. Do you have a particular question?

Does someone else want to chime in?

Even if it does end, what the hell is this so called "end"? What's after that?
Assuming your talking about the end of the universe as we know it then there would be nothing but pure consciousness, infinite space, and infinite nothingness. There would be no creation. No subject and no object. Words really fail to describe such a state.

I'm glad you found a solution Nameless.  grin

Where you never an outcast or bullied at school?
9  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Lucid Dream School on: August 07, 2016, 07:02:08
I'm trying to figure out why this bugs me and hoping something will click.
Do you have unforgiveness in your heart? This is a big one that I think many look over.
10  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Lucid Dream School on: August 07, 2016, 05:55:37
I grew up in a fundamentalist christian home. I am no longer a typical christian by any stretch of the imagination but while I was a young christian my dad taught us that every dream was from God. And that we should pay attention to our dreams. Well I've written down quite a few of my dreams. And I can that it was a very long recurring theme throughout my life to be going to school or be at school in my dreams. Especially grammar school. Though usually not running at school. Though I have only had a small amount of dreams running. Personally I only find meaningful dream to be from the spiritual. They are the types of dreams where you know that you know that this was from your higher self/God/Source whatever you call it. I've only had like one or two dreams that I am sure they were from a higher power. Those are my thoughts.
11  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Thoughts on a christian astral projection/OBE? on: August 07, 2016, 05:36:28
The for me answer to all religious OBE/AP/Phasing or even NDE experience is simple:

BST = Belief System Territory

Read Robert Monroe.  wink
Yeah I agree Belief Systems Territory is much more universal concept for these types of experiences than Christianity itself. And I've read some of Robert Monroe.
12  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Thoughts on a christian astral projection/OBE? on: August 06, 2016, 22:47:19
Also I would like to add this. I know my previous post comes across as preachy. Know that I do not profess to be a Christian, I simply refuse to treat those who are with disdain as they matter as much as anyone else. To me God is that same essence that some call The Source or their Higher Self.  smiley
No that's fine I agree.
13  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Thoughts on a christian astral projection/OBE? on: August 06, 2016, 22:19:52
He is definitely right about one thing - Forgive. To hold onto and keep forgiveness from another condemns both.
I agree with everything, but the last thing you said caught my attention. OK let's say I fully forgive someone, are you saying that if they are still effected and unforgiving of me that it could hold me down?
14  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Thoughts on a christian astral projection/OBE? on: August 06, 2016, 19:30:28
Also note that if I get some good replies I will direct my friend that posted this on facebook to this thread here.

I wonder what you all think of this video. I know years ago I would love a video like this. I use to watch stuff like this and I believed it so much. Note I find it interesting that when he left his body there was a bluish tint, kind of like the astral. I actually use to read books by Mary K Baxter, which is the same thing he was reading up on, she is really extreme. Supposedly Jesus took her out of her body and showed her hell and heaven.


Thoughts please?
16  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: How do you pick your close freinds? on: August 05, 2016, 02:41:01
Plasma i agree with your second part of post but i think the difference between learning from others and learning by your mistakes have different impacts on you, so for example : Don't fear sleep paralysis it's just your mind and you get sleep paralysis but still fear covers you, you had knowledge that there is nothing to be afraid of but it still happens but when you take over fear by your own experiences the impact form this is larger then impact form just basic knowledge about sleep paralysis

I gave some made in china exampel but hope i still cleared a little bit what i wanted to say :d
Yeah I agree both are important.

BTW I posted this here since I like to get an idea of what spiritual people think.
17  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: How do you pick your close freinds? on: August 03, 2016, 17:18:06
You ask a lot of non Astral related questions here.  huh

 I think you need to get out and "live" a little. Sorry if you find that harsh, but it's the truth. Looking back at your more recent threads, they seem to all be questions that pertain to why we are put here in this life to experience in the first place. You are meant to learn by "YOUR" experience, not by everyone elses.

 It seems like you are taking shortcuts here. You can only get so much from other people's opinions. Life is about experiencing. Good, bad, ugly, they are all experiences. You can't avoid the bad and ugly, that's where your true lessons lie.

 You make friends, not all the time is it going to be "peaches and cream". But learn you from it.

 If someone does you wrong, you are twice as leery the next time around. Unless of course you like life to "slap" you in the head many times before you can actually see the meaning. Some people have to be taught the same thing repeatedly until they finally understand the reason behind things.

 Sorry again, I was "channeling" you there and I guess this is what you needed to hear on some level.

 Good Luck!  smiley
Two things. One damn I think you might have read me very well there. I've been a very hard learner in the past. Repeating the same mistakes over and over. Now though I don't do that. At least I don't think I do. Now I am a pretty fast learner once I mess up.

Also I agree with the part about experiencing. But I find that I learn much faster learning from others. But obviously learning from first hand experience is better and leaves a more lasting impression. But both types of learning are good. I love to research and analyze things so.

watch out for sinners though; in my experience most people will "try something" at some point you just need to be wise.
What do you mean by that? Give an example.
19  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: How do you pick your close freinds? on: July 31, 2016, 21:59:41
I lost all of my friends which I got not just from childhood but but from high school and after it. Some of them were 10-15 years friendships. I tried to fight for them to get them back but you can't. Some connections did brake suddenly out of nowhere. After I got on this path I later realized that maybe our friends are like guides in the NP. While they have or you have a task with him/her/them, you are together and after that they are on their own.
I had a really good friend, who turned out to be suddenly a father with two little girls, and our connection after one year just gone suddenly. A really good guy for being a friend.
Other friendships were just pulling-pushing like, I tried to make connections stronger but always the other side was the weaker and others are just stayed on their path. Ok to tell the truth most of them were too boring after a little while and somehow our paths are just going in the opposite direction.
I had another friend for example, with whom we were together, playing PC games, having fun, or just taking hours, going here and there, for about 10 years and he's just started to be hugely egoistic! I couldn't believe it and I couldn't stay with him for a friendship anymore. It was like a joke, like a hidden force made his path to a totally different direction.

My best guess today is that our friends are there for a certain time and after that maybe they are off and continuing their journey to elsewhere. You can't fight for them because it is like you are too different now or they are. Of course there is a factor there that your friendship was some kind of exploding one.
Strong issue could be if you are the one who are trying to make your connection better and the other one is like in a bubble and not even recognize your role in that. Energy vampires could be like that lol. I had some too.
I also thought for years that maybe the disconnections were my problem but I couldn't find any issue on my side. Simply they are on their own way now and you can't turn them around anymore.
Thanks for that informative reply. Hum I wonder what others experiences are? Like how common is that to loose all of your friends like that? I know my mom and dad lost their friends. But they were fundamentalist Christians.

Anyway since I am an introvert I think the best way to find new friends is through and find others with similar interests that want to grow together.

On the karma level I don't feel too bad for him since he is a player and cheats on women, never committing. Some of his ex's even turned lesbian because of his actions. He was a good guy to me though up until that one time when he misunderstood what I said and took it the wrong way. Anyway this is just really been on my mind.
21  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / How do you pick your close freinds? on: July 31, 2016, 20:45:09
Hi everyone I recently lost a guy good friend of mine I had for about a year. We were good friends. I think it's caused both of us a lot of stress. Nothing too bad yet though. I am wondering how do you's pick your close friends, not acquaintances? What are some disqualifiers and what are some qualifiers?
22  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Crazy idea to AP? on: July 29, 2016, 02:30:20
Your still on here. Ha The idea of flying keeps you coming back. LOL I'll still let you know once I take a psychedelic. Wink
23  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: What are the top most damaging things for the soul? on: July 28, 2016, 03:45:45
Now the even bigger question is who is the arbiter of these mess ups? Is it our higher self, enlightened masters, guides? Who decides what kind of life you live next according to your works?

24  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Can we have a better format for PMs here at the astral pulse? on: July 27, 2016, 21:47:05
Hi I was wondering if we could have a better format for PMs? The current way it's set up it doesn't allow one to follow the conversation very well through multiple PMs. Eg a better format would be like an email format, where one can start a new thread/PM and keep all the PMs of that topic and person in one place. Right now it's just scattered between inbox and outbox. I've wanted to go back multiple times to read through my PMs but it's hard to follow a topic since my reply their reply are scattered and are not in chronological order. Thoughts?
25  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: I feel so limited on this dimension on: July 27, 2016, 20:17:44
The irony being that "meditating", by itself, will never lead to enlightenment, however, meditating "here" is no different than meditating "there"... in the end, meditation is a unique experience for YOUR OWN consciousness and has nothing to do with "where" you are.  It's an exercise in connecting with "the self".

The reason why this physical life on Earth is vastly superior for spiritual growth compared to any other non-physical reality is BECAUSE of those limitations.  They provide you with constraints against which you have to make choices and interact with others.  Those choices and interactions are where the vast majority of your spiritual growth comes from.  You can make choices and interact with others in the non-physical as well, but you then lack those "limitations" which makes all the difference.
Like I said I just read that you can't reach enlightenment in the afterlife. Who knows how true that really is. Perhaps you can reach enlightenment without coming here, but then you become ignorant of how things really work in the grand scheme of things, IDK. There is a lot of mystery in the spiritual path, which makes it very humbling.
