1  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Focusing On Exit Techniques on: Yesterday at 05:19:58
Thank you for the suggestions.

Question Baro-san - If you focus on feeling yourself in a certain place, isn't more likely you would fall into a dream state?   Reason why I'm asking is I have projected before and found myself fully conscious - almost like I am when I am awake.

Problem is - I've been trying to get back to that for awhile w/o any success.  That is why I've been trying to get suggestions as to what to concentrate on in order to keep the mind awake or at least fall into a lucid dream and work from there.

You have to keep a high level of awareness until your body fell asleep. Focusing away from your body, forgetting about it, facilitates that. The rollover, rope, and over imaginary moving techniques work after your physical body already fell asleep. Relaxation aids falling asleep, but keeps you focused on your body, and reduces your level of awareness.

There are many small steps that performed in the right succession can help, like focusing on your frontal lobe and top of your head, with or without pointing your eyes up, stimulates activity in those areas of your brain, so if after a minute of that you just relax top down, without thinking about your body, you detach your mind from your body.

Then, if you focus on something away from your body, either in the present, or in the past, or in the future, an activity that doesn't produce an excitement of your body (e.g. sexual), you keep your awareness, because you're interested in what you're thinking about, and your body falls asleep, unobserved.

This is also the basis of hypnotic regression.

Once your mind detaches from your physical body, you can focus it anywhere in time and space. It doesn't have to be a deep trance.

You can focus on wherever you want to project. Imagine already being there, feeling yourself being there, doing whatever you intend to be doing there. Let your physical body fall asleep by forgetting about it.

Probably more than ever, we live times in which willingly and unwillingly we hear /read random peoples' opinions; too many of them.

We can't really do much about changing others; it's only up to us to pick and choose and ignore. We don't have to react to everything others say / write.

Obviously, each human being lives in their own reality. This is why honest people sincerely see things differently.

We should focus on what we're individually doing, and creating, and stop blaming others for our inconveniences, stop passing judgment over things we don't understand, and take responsibility for what we, each one, are doing and saying.
4  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Re: Please help me on: June 17, 2018, 14:17:07
Before I begin, I want to explain something.  I suffer from high-functioning autism.  Because of this, my mind is very "black or white" about things.  Alot of the time when I ask people about these things, they dont understand about how I really really need the EXACT thing I'm asking for and not some kind of "the answer is already inside you" kind of answer.  Those kinds of answers just dont compute to me because of the way my mind works.

Anyway, there is a question that I really want to ask my "higher self".  The best way to do this seems to be using a brainwave entrainment device to tap into my 8th chakra.  However, I am very OCD over the fact that my mind might slip and that I might not ask the question correctly or something like that.  I seem to remember reading stuff about magick and writing down wishes and putting them in special boxes or something like that.  I really want to find some way to use an entrainment device to tap into my 8th chakra and have it automatically know that its supposed to answer the question that's in the box.

To ask questions to my "higher self" I use self-hypnosis to get in a light trance. In that state I'm fully conscious. I formulate a clear and concise question, and immediately the answer pops into my mind. I don't hear a voice. The answer is downloaded into my mind, and now it is there. The answer is always very clear, concise, direct, and sometimes surprising. When I don't get an answer immediately, I don't wait for it longer. I am careful to not distort the information I get with my expectations, emotions, beliefs. Most of the times the answer pops into my mind before I fully formulate the question in words. It is like my intended question is perceived directly from where it forms, before I'm fully aware of it.

Most clinical trials that 'evaluate' alternative healing methods seem not even worth the paper they are written on.

Moreover, the prelmininary assumptions are faulty because every holistic procedure is indidivual, this cannot be mirrored adequately in mass trials in clinics, for the most part at least.

It is pretended that alternative medicine should work like the mass so-called 'science-based' (what a laugh) mainstream pharma medicine, but it does not. Give a cure for the same 'disease' but it already fails since dis-eases are differently categorized in alternative medicine from the start. So there is not even a common basis to go from mostly.

And most (not all, but most) double or triple placebo trials are biased since on most 'evaluation' panels there's as a majority of pharma operatives as staff on. And they are not impartial. Never were.

And then there's the elephant in the room ... the hated placebo effect that should not even exist in the first place in the worldview of mainstream medicine. It is a mind healing effect more or less, dependent on or in part independent of the method administered, that is true. But in general it can be said that for the mainstreeam it should better not exist either ... I could go on here, but better let go now.

Peace.  cool

Good point! Placebo points to the healing / maligning power of our thoughts and beliefs.

Acupuncture is an odd thing, in that it works, but only slightly.

The placebo component seems to account for 80% of the effectiveness in clinical trials.

For instance, a person with no knowledge of acupuncture, who uses needles at random, is 80% as effective as a person well trained, the trials indicate.

But if it is providing people with results, and not doing harm, then great.

------------------------

I agree with you in general though. There are many forms of treatments that are better on the whole than western pharmaceuticals. It comes down to powerful lobbying by the drug companies that shut out other valid treatments. We are just now getting over the blacklisting of marijuana as a powerful treatment for a number of illnesses, in some cases over and above the most effective pharmaceuticals.

This reminds of the stories that a monkey, a parrot, etc. throwing a dart beat a plethora of weathered investors at picking stocks. Still, I've never heard of anybody betting their money on monkeys' darts ... Smiley

I'm not that sure that the human evolution is the intelligence evolution in the way I understand you believe. All we have are hypotheses, and history repeatedly proved wrong many highly credible hypotheses.

I don't believe that we are here, humans walking the Earth, to improve our intelligence (IQ).

I've keep coming across references to Seth but so far haven't really taken an in depth look at any of the material. However I am interested in where this goes so will try it.

Sammie, nice to hear someone else mention machine noises inside their head. This is not something I've experienced often but a time or two I've heard such beeps or 'noises'.

This is a free pdf version of Jane Roberts' "Seth - Quotes and exercises". It is 249 pages, and includes quotes from all /most Seth books.

Seth’s concept of “True Dreams from the Gates of Horn,”

excerpts of Seth ESP Classes

There is something that I would like you to do. During the week, before you sleep, tell yourself, if you want to, that you will have a true dream that will come from the Gates of Horn. Now that is an ancient suggestion given by the Egyptians. The Gates of Horn.

I do not want to tell you what it means yet, simply to ask you to give yourselves the suggestion – those of you who want to – a true dream that will help harmonize the portions of your being. Now that is part of the suggestion. Ask for a true dream that comes from the Gates of Horn, that will help harmonize the portions of your being.

Now such dreams will help you recognize some of your beliefs and will charge your being with energy. The class is quickening. I am giving you assignments. Some of you will follow them, and some will not. But the means will be here for those of you to follow who want to badly enough – I should say, goodly enough – but those of you who are willing to take the time and the energy, those assignments that you have not as yet discussed in class are important.

I did find SOMETHING that could be what I was looking for.  I wasnt meditating when it came to me but it did seem to strike me alot faster than things usually do. 

To get a proper answer you have to have access to your subconscious, in an altered state of consciousness. Otherwise, it's likely that the answer is given by your hopes and fears, and it's unreliable.

While in such a state, as you ask your question, the answer will pop up in your mind. Be sure to ask a clear question, and not to rationalize the answer! If you don't get an answer immediately, don't wait longer. Reformulate your question, and ask again.
12  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: I have proof that GOD cannot be black!!! on: May 25, 2018, 10:29:48
I'm pretty literal, so here's my two cents for what it's worth.  I just can't resist.

For the people who believe in God --> "God" would be a spirit, so I seriously doubt he even has skin.  He would be a being of light.

However " the man Jesus" was an Arab.  Neither black nor white.  Nearly everyone in that area has black hair and a black beard with brown skin...   shocked  I have always thought it funny he has been depicted as a blonde.

Can't resist either ... Smiley

Your 2 cents are worth nil: one is ridiculous, the other is incorrect.
13  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: OBE 's stopped!? on: May 21, 2018, 07:35:58
Hi everyone,

I used to AP regularly, probably 3 or 4 times a month spontaneously mostly,

but about 3 years ago they just stopped, and I am ok with that because the experiences I had changed my life.

however lately  I have been missing it, alot

Has this happened to anyone else? I 'm sure it probably has but is there a remedy ? , to get back on the horse

so to speak,
Thanks


Maybe it's that you entered a new phase of your growth, when you have to learn and experience new things, to get beyond having astral projections for entertainment.
14  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Astral Technology on: May 15, 2018, 02:56:38
I believe you don't need such devices in a thought responsive environment. Neither time, nor space, seem to exist over there.
15  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: Don't feel connected on: May 07, 2018, 06:15:58
Hi, ever since I started "waking up" in 2012 I have noticed how everything stops making sense to me. I have come to the point/been at a point where I no longer feel connected
to this life on earth. It is like I see so clearly things others don't and yet I am here living a 3d dimensional life feeling like im somewhere else in my mind. It is hard to explain but have been this
way for years now and it feels very strange. I feel as if I no longer really have a good reason to be here, even though I most certainly have no big problem with it.. It is like watching a movie knowing it
is actually a movie whereas the other actors forgot it was a movie at all.

My question is: do you know why you came here, on Earth? Have you already accomplished your goal for this coming? if not, your current aloofness is counterproductive, and you should overcome it.

I honestly think they have that wrong. I can't explain it but I feel the science just is not quite right on this subject. Kind of the way I felt when they first started putting so much faith in carbon dating.

To quote NoY (see above): "that (yours) is a very intelligent perspective"

18  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: Rife Machines on: April 21, 2018, 02:54:03
I'm just reading one of Frank Kinslow's books about "quantum entrainment". He advocated using "pure awareness" for healing, and addressing almost every aspect of your life. You can find some of his workshops on youtube.
19  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: A Practical Breakdown On How To Astral Project on: April 20, 2018, 03:11:46
How often do you project this way? What's your success rate?
20  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: Visualization on: April 09, 2018, 11:44:12

It depends what you want to use visualisation for.

For things like obe's and affirmations, is better to live whatever your intention is, than to imagine that you look at it, like watching on a mental screen. And it is essential to be in an appropriate state of consciousness.
21  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Guide access? on: April 09, 2018, 02:51:39
To those who have successfully accessed a guide could you expand on precisely how you did so while ob.  etc. Thank you.

If you want to "access a guide" in order to ask questions, for knowledge or guidance, then, while obe-ing, just ask whatever you want to know. You'll instantly have the answer in your head, and / or you'll see a succession of images that illustrate the answer. Try to keep a state of neutral expectation, and not to affect the information with your interpretation.

Occasionally, you may see a personification of a guide, but that personification is only for your benefit, to accommodate your belief in physical forms. 
22  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: The Event - Mass Awakening - Dimensional Transcendence on: April 03, 2018, 02:31:26
I've never understood all this "dimension" talk...

It is just people's attempts to name the "beyond 3D". Nomenclature matters less.

I believe that honest people have widely different psychic experiences because of their differences in their beliefs.
23  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Astral projection, is going inward, not outward, so.... ? on: April 02, 2018, 02:59:56
The physical is 3D (three dimensional). Projecting into non-physical implies focusing into another range of the consciousness, which is another, non 3D, dimension.

People use the term inward, related to projecting, just because outward is associated with the 3D space. However far outward you go, you're still in 3D.

Imagine living into a 2D world (x,y), and projecting in space (z). How would you describe it to your 2D people? Left, right? You don't have words like above, or below.
24  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: The Event - Mass Awakening - Dimensional Transcendence on: April 01, 2018, 08:36:33
Lots of us are talking about it. It has been predicted to happen, some say it already has happened. This idea is a global mindset shift, a domino effect triggered by a particular event. We are talking about a radical change unlike anything in our recorded history. We might gain highly psychic powers and the ability to more freely manipulate reality. Earth could move to the "5th dimension" as we are to believe other cultures have before us.

Is any of this real? Some people claim to already have moved over to 5d. What might the event be, how would it work? Start your speculation engines  evil

Let's see ... tomorrow's April 1st!
25  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: HemiSync insanely expensive, only option? on: April 01, 2018, 04:50:33
Hi everybody,

 So Just looking around and there are maybe binaural beats on youtube, iphone apps, and other mp3s around.  And then there is Hemisync. Why is Hemisync crazy expensive? If people here have had experience with binaural beats from many sources including Hemisync, is there an actual tangible difference?  (Mainly talking about the gateway Experience one.)  Have you tried a phone app with great binaural beats that you recommend?
 
Lastly do you feel that binaural beats benefit your meditation sessions and OBE attempts ?

I didn't find binaural beats beneficial in any way.

I have the whole Hemisync set. I browsed only the first 6 discs, and tried several times the first 2 or 3 sessions. I was very enthusiastic about the Hemisync, but I found it waaaaay too slow.

In my current opinion there are better ways. You can achieve the same trance levels, much faster, with other self hypnosis scripts. Also, the whole Monroe's level structure is too constraining, and tainted by his own beliefs.

Everybody should taint their perceptions only with their own beliefs  smiley  smiley
