26  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Astral projection.for someone who has Aphantasia (cannot visualise anything) on: September 23, 2018, 10:07:19
Relatively recently, I read, and liked, "Seeing With the Mind's Eye - The History, Techniques and Uses of Visualisation" by Mike Samuels, MD and Nancy Samuels, published 1975. Being older you might find it on the internet in pdf format.

I think that you could get something useful from that.
27  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / "I Have Seen It Tomorrow" by Iris Krst - Review by Bob Peterson on: September 23, 2018, 06:05:43
http://obeoutlook.blogspot.com/2018/08/review-i-have-seen-it-tomorrow-by-iris.html

I just read Bob's review of this book. I like his book reviews.

Probably that's why I felled compelled to make a post to express my disappointed by the narrow-mindedness he showed in this case (obviously in my opinion). Actually his review enticed me to read the book, so I'll try to get it.

Some of the ideas presented in the book, and discounted by Bob, correspond to my experiences. Others don't. But that is to be expected.

Bob seems very reluctant to accept that others can experience things differently than he does, or other well know obe-ers did, or science accepts. That was unexpected.

For me the exit technique is not about getting out of body. It's about confirming I am already out of body. ...

Very good point!
29  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What is the light at the end of the tunnel experience? on: September 20, 2018, 08:02:06
When a person dies and goes through the tunnel, it sounds like their going to a higher plane.  It's like this worm hole opens up for them and after they go through it, it disappears again.   I've heard that the light at the end of the tunnel is the light from that higher plane.  Does anybody ever go through a tunnel when going to a lower plane?  

I guess if you raise your vibration you can shift to the next higher up plane. And if you lower your vibration you can shift to the next lower plane.  But if you want to shift through multiple planes at a time, a worm hole or tunnel opens up for you.  At least if your shifting to a higher plane.  Does that sound about right?

I remember reading in a book one time that in today day and age people often pass through a tunnel when they die.  But apparently in other times and cultures they didn't see themselves going through a tunnel.  Instead they saw themselves crossing over a bridge or perhaps taking a boat from one place to another.  Could it be that the tunnel and these other images are just images we see when we shift through planes to a higher plane?

Why don't you try to experience it your self (through obe, regression, self-hypnosis, etc.)? We can't rationalize answers to questions about non-physical?

Higher/lower, wormhole, tunnel, vibration, ... all are just examples of personal beliefs.

It's like birth. It is also experienced by those who regress to the womb, then progress through birth.
31  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: how to die on: September 16, 2018, 05:06:35
Yes definitely. How can I use self hypnosis for inducing altered states of consciousness. Can you give me some pointers. As I have severe ocd, so trying meditation is really hard on me.

Here there are two google searches that open a lot of possibilities. Browse through them, then ask here (or on other forums) if you have questions. All it takes is to start, then you can ask your higher self while in trance. The more neutral are your expectations, the more accurate information you'll get.

Hi,

Can anyone guide me on how to die to this world (without actually dying) and become spiritual?
How to forsake the physical and embrace the spiritual?

Thanks,
Sarah

You're probably asking about how to focus your mind on other planes of existence, while still alive on this Earth. Depending on what you want, you can try any of the many altered states of consciousness experiences. I recommend self hypnosis.
33  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: OBE compared to NDE on: September 14, 2018, 04:31:41
When people experience NDEs it seems as if they experience the physical as if remote viewing themselves ie, “I heard what the Drs. said to each other and them pronouncing me dead” etc. which i believe is refered to as the real time zone. None of my OBEs have occured it the rtz- although many are very similar, i clearly realize the experience is within me vs. me floating out of my body in the physical. Even Monroe spoke about “pinching” a woman friend of his to prove he was OBEing in the rtz-but again, my experiences are clearly not the rtz. . Although most of Monroes experiences were clearly not in the rtz. So I am curious if NDEs actually occur in the rtz or if they simply appear to because of the similarities just as OBEs do? At times i have wondered if obes and ndes were one in the same given many people label ndes as actually happening in the rtz and label obes as “only lucid dreaming” and not the same as an nde in the rtz. Im curious if there is literature on people who have experienced an nde and also experienced obes for their opinions. I only ask this because i spoke with a person who said NDE’ers actually float out of their body ala a ghost and OBEers are simply having lucid dreams. I couldnt guide this person to any literature of people who have experienced both who state they are one in the same.

OBE, NDE, and other altered states of consciousness are similar phenomena. They have different names because they have some particularities, but their commonalities are more important than their differences. Both OBEs and NDEs, as they are reported, can happen in rtz, or on another plane. The distinction isn't that important because it is a matter of focusing on a range or another of the continuous consciousness dimension. The LD / OBE distinction isn't important for the same reason.

All starts with what "mind" is, and where it is.
34  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Re: how to see beyond the veil on: September 14, 2018, 04:09:24
A quick search yielded this:

Beyond the veil in the unknown state of being after death; the phrase is originally a figurative reference to the veil which in the Jewish Temple separated the main body of the Temple from the tabernacle, and derives particularly from Tyndale's translation of the Bible.

This kind of explains what the OP is looking for on this and the other thread she started.

Although meditation (wet or dry) is generally recommended, I believe that, information wise, you can achieve much faster results with self hypnosis.

There are many-many different opinions about what there is after death, some expressed by honest people, some peddled for money, most parroted by well-meaning ignorant people. So, it is very difficult to sift the good from the bad information available in written, oral, or electronic form. That's why I recommend, to anybody who asks for sources of information, to try to get it first hand by turning inwards (hypnosis or meditation, no drugs), going deep, and there asking questions, and being open for answers, careful not to distort the answers with personal beliefs, emotions, or expectations.

You are already showing troll behaviour of someone who I dont like.

If you had clicked on the link you'd be able to quickly see what the subliminal messages are:

For example: http://www.brainsync.com/audio-store/subliminals/astral-travel.html

And yes, you can drive perfectly fine on some of her tapes

You seem to lack manners, so I'll avoid replying to you.

Be careful with this.  Rumor has it they have magnetic machines that can trap your astral body keeping you there and making your physical body  go into a coma

I dislike the idea of subliminal messages. I can't trust an unknown person to plug an unknown something into my subconscious. At the minimum they should give you a written transcript of the subliminal message. And ... you shouldn't listen to such tapes while driving !!!
39  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Chicken or the Egg on: September 10, 2018, 02:01:58
Hi

I think humans when they experience something that they do not understand, they call it as fake. It's their way of finding comfort or a meaning to something they don't understand. If you don't understand something, then it must not be real. I don't judge these people's believe..to each their own.

I personally think that you can't use the word "Real" and compare it to what we experience in the afterlife. You are trying to put a word on something that we know as "real" from the pshyical world to the non physical.


I think the chicken was a animale that grew and developed over time. Then eventually it turned into a chicken that produced a egg..LOL


Nightmares and fear.. I think are related. I would say fear and nightmares are inter twined. If you have a nightmare..it can trigger fear. If you goto bed and have fear..it can trigger a nightmare.


Bliss or Orgasm... Hmmm... It's the same thing. All Your questions of who came first..are questions that you can flip around. Your questions are part of life that everyone thinks yet we have no answer to it. That is what makes life wonderfull.. Not knowing the answers to life's questions makes you live life.


When I goto the Ehreal I never thought about questioning if it was real or not. It did not matter to me. What I experience to me is my experience and if I think it is real or not..does not matter. I have been out in the Ethreal and seen things, the Astral and if it is just a illusion created from my mind that I am projected into.. Hey..I am not complaining..It's wonderfull.



The egg was first because the higher level spark happens in the egg, not in the chicken.

The fear was first because the thought is the spark that creates the thought form.

Bliss is a condition of the mind, it actually has no relation to orgasm. What one experiences in that case isn't bliss, but a feeling caused by the act.
40  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Chicken or the Egg on: September 10, 2018, 01:55:37
Wow, I've read a few older posts tonight and even considered posting on them but changed my mind and thought I'd go fresh.

I'm honestly a little baffled by some of the thoughts I come across, not just here but other places as well. Since when did we decide the world is fake? I keep reading statements like - It's all subjective or we create our own reality or there are no negs, it's all in your thoughts.

Say again? I'm not blowing off what others say I'm just can't seem to quite get on the same page.

My first very strange experience did not happen because I thought about it or had any preconceived ideas. I was 3 years old and innocent as a babe in the woods. Whatever that was it came from somewhere but not me.

My first nightmare did not arrive because I was afraid. If anything I still didn't even know that kind of fear. It was the event itself that taught me to fear what I later learned to term nightmares. Those mares did not exist in my inner world.

So much has happened and out of all of it absolutely nothing has brought me to the conclusion that this world/reality or whatever you want to call it is a matrix or just a created 'belief system'. Note I am not saying our beliefs do not color our experiences for certainly they do. I am saying that regardless of where I came from, of what pieces of me might be floating endlessly through time and space THIS me is here now and I did not create this although I may have agreed to help fill in some of the pages in the universal coloring book.

So which came first
The nightmare or the fear
The bliss or the orgasm
The chicken or the egg

You can't be serious ... Smiley

When you have a dream, do you know you're dreaming? (obviously, excepting the "lucid dreams")

You know that our perceptions may be wrong.

By the way:
These came first
- The nightmare or the fear
- The bliss or the orgasm
- The chicken or the egg

It seems that there is a lot of misinformation about what's "up there". My suggestion, that I follow too, is to find out for yourself. Don't trust, but also don't blame others. Turn inside, go deep, ask, be open for answers, don't filter them through your expectations, beliefs, emotions!

There are honest people who distribute misinformation.
42  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: August 28, 2018, 10:21:18
...  I began relaxing into the water for my Phase/soak session. I did a quick progressive relaxation tech, to relieve some nagging shoulder issues I had, then kind of lost myself in thought for a few minutes. ...

I read today a paragraph that reminded me of your phase/soak method:

Itzhak Bentov was a mechanical engineer, inventor, author and mystic and explorer of cosmic consciousness.

He was able to combine his curious mind with a courageous soul to explore the unknown realms of cosmic consciousness with just wit and humor as his luggage. His plan was to publish some of his work as a comic strip instead of a cosmic trip! Bentov had two ways to prepare himself for his “trips,” which were not drug-induced.

Initially, like Archimedes, he used the “wet method” of soaking in a bathtub full of hot water, going into a “twilight zone” to get flashes or ideas that he scribbled down on a notepad. Later he favored the “drier method” of meditation and relaxed concentration. He wrote:

“I could attain remote reality by simply visualizing myself to be there, and there I was…”

Time targeted projection are quite inaccurate. I suggest event targeted projection. Define simply and clearly the event you're looking for.
44  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Overlap of opinions with Penn Jillette (and other atheists) on: August 20, 2018, 06:40:39
...

Only a hypocrite would claim that he has the defintive answer to the mysteries of what happens after death, a monopoly on truth, so to speak. Also, I actually used to believe the same thing as Penn did, until I did come across evidence to suggest otherwise (although my first OOBE is hardly "solid" evidence by scientific standards). Now I am sure there is something more than meets the eye. Yet I have no idea what that really is. And anyone who claimed any different would actually have had to die, then be resurrected and remember everything. And I am not talking about NDEs, I am actually talking about being "completely on the other side." Now, that might be the case for those who claim to remember their past lives, but to say that anyone has the definitive answer to it all would raise some eyebrows even here on Astral Pulse, I am sure.

...

Any thoughts? smiley

Good to be back again, btw.  grin

Probably you didn't mean it the way I read it ... The fact that you don't know something, doesn't entitle you to believe that nobody knows it, or that it can't be known.

We may also use different definitions for some of the words you wrote: atheist, hypocrite, scientific, ...

Penn Jillette seems to be an entertainer. He lives from making people paying attention to him.
45  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: New Experience, would like your opinions on: August 20, 2018, 01:49:42

 Somehow there are lot of entities trying to scare us so we get back to our bodies. They are known as astral vampires, they have the ability to scare people [they will represent whatever causes you fear, it could be a gray [ufo/alien]] while dream paralysis, the astral vampires are the cause 95% of people can't do a conscious OBEs.

As far as I know, those are thought forms created by ourselves. We give them "life" and power. We shouldn't ...
46  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: New Experience, would like your opinions on: August 19, 2018, 13:20:19
During nightmares, the way to escape is by closing your eyes and forcefully opening them.

Experiments showed that while in a lucid dream, your dream eye movements are duplicated by your physical eye movements. In this way the lucid dreaming subject could signal to a physical observer who is watching the subject's physical eyes.

You have to "see" through your closed eyes, in your obes.

While in the non-physical, your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs create though forms. That's why you have to adopt an attitude of "mild curiosity" (as Frank Kepple used to recommend) if you want to explore the non-physical reality with minimal interference from you.

In the non-physical, when you try to go through a wall, if you believe you can you will go through it, but if you believe you can't you won't.

You can try giving yourself commands, as Buhlman recommends, but you'll have to believe they'll happen.

Another suggestion is to prime the process by imagining something visually, like on a big screen, then step into it.
47  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Your most interesting time difference experience? on: August 14, 2018, 13:55:58
When I was young, maybe 12 years old, I experienced a complete past life of around 30 years, living around the year 1800, there were lot of wagon horses, I had a nice home, family and friends.

 I suddenly wake up and felt so confused that I can't recognize my own brother for 10 minutes and asked him several times where I was, I experience my first panic attack, I try hard not going crazy, slowly I recover my memory and forgot all the past life.
How did you differentiate between a past life, and a dream? For a 12 years old, it must've been perplexing to completely experience an adult's life.

Well my body thinks I need sugary stuff and it works since decades lol. But it can be addictive and causing bad choices indeed.

Just people need to ask one thing from themselves. Where the human race fits into the food chain on this planet? Not mentioning accidental or stupid deaths by stronger animals lol. The human body is not really similar to any other animals by look and accuracy. It was designed, right? Right Cheesy

1. Looks are deceiving

2. The reason rodents are used as models in medical testing is that their genetic, biological and behavior characteristics closely resemble those of humans, and many symptoms of human conditions can be replicated in mice and rats

3. A sugary diet will sicken you badly, even if you take your sugar only from organic fruits.

4. Definitely a diet lacking the nutrients the human body needs isn't healthy, and will yield bad heath.

5. It would be nice to have the answers to all our questions, but we have to concentrate, in my opinion, on the practical ones: Why am I here now; what am I supposed to try to accomplish during my life? Why are humans here now; what are humans supposed to try to accomplish during their lives?

49  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Short exit inside a dream on: August 12, 2018, 11:43:07
So, I haven't had any projections for quite a few months, but I have been trying to focus more on it to get back on track(if that would help). I wrote about waking up and paying more attention in my "headspace" recently and it paid of a little.

I was today in a dream similar to this reality but my bed was on the other side of the room and I was  sleeping 180 degrees  towards the other direction. I found myself in my headspace and felt there might be a chance to exit. With some willpower I rolled onto the floor. I couldn't see. I felt my way to the leg of my bed and grabbed it, felt as expected. I then thought about going somewhere as I didn't see anything but gray thick fog possibly(I should just have believed in my sight instead). I then proceeded to my staircase as my thoughts didn't take me anywhere directly, but they weren't very clear either on where I wanted to go. I then was woken up before I made it further down into the house.

William Buhlman recommends that in such situations to command / ask / wish / expect: "clarity now!", and "awareness now!"
50  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: August 12, 2018, 07:04:22
In my last couple of daily Phase/soak sessions, I have perceived the Park in different ways.

 A few days ago while targeting it, I found the bridge to be very rickety and run down. When I saw the Park, I saw that the area was different. It was the same Park, but it seemed like it lost it's grooming. Tall grass completely blocked out much of it. It looked like no one had attended this area for years. I saw the benches were still there though. They also looked run down and ragged.

 So, I went to the task of "Caretaker" and began to clean it up. I knew for some reason that I had to use somewhat of a "physical ruleset" to make the changes. So, I began with a simple lawnmower and watched as other crews joined in the mass clean-up. It took awhile to do, but we got it back to the way I was used to seeing it. I figured this to be some kind of test and when I finally ended the session, I found that the water in my bath was bordering on luke warm. I must have been in that "projection" for over a hour. I enjoyed it though.

 In today's session, I found the bridge to be the challenge. I began walking across it and found that the further I got, the weaker it got, until there was no boards at all and I felt like I was walking on air. I normally experience my Phase sessions as a simple point of consciousness with no need for a physical vessel. But for some reason, it's not that way when I target the "Park". Why? I have no idea. When I walk, I feel each step and the motion of walking as well. As a point of consciousness, the sense of movement is much more smooth and fluid.

Maybe those changes are reflections of your subconscious being recently touched by negative emotions, caused by events in your life.
