Cool LD Shineling, I'd watch that show grin

Last night I had one of those super lucid dreams. I was myself but at the same time I was my dreamer self. I can see that they are different - there’s the small me and the big super dreamer me. They are both I but my dreamer knows crazy things about the universe. Things my little me finds hard to understand. Both sides are the self but they are like two modes to my soul.

Interesting, do you remember everything that the super dreamer experienced after waking up ? I've had something similar happen where I get this moment of clarity about a subject, where it all makes sense and seems so logical, but after waking up that part of the dream is completely blanked out.

Wow shocked this is one of those things I will only be convinced of by experiencing it first hand, and if it ever happens it's gonna get send off to a lab for analysis, just to convince myself it's real.

Thanks for the explanations, that totally clears it up, lol.

But no, really thanks, guess I'm just too old figure this stuff out. How is it working out for you?

Casey, I saw it on paypal but then they started mentioning wallets and my head exploded.

To put it simply, all I'm doing is buying low and selling high, with the goal of accumulating Bitcoin. With Bitcoin, which is the crypto with the highest market capitalization, I'm holding for long periods of time trying to catch the big moves. Then I use a small percentage of my account to actively trade alts, which are more volatile, big risk and potential big reward.

So far it's working out good, took some big losses the first year, but have recovered nicely and are steadily growing my account.

Bob you just used about 6 terms I have no idea of the meaning.

Oops grin sorry about that..

A spot trade is a non leveraged trade of an asset, for immediate delivery. BTC is the ticker for Bitcoin. Alts = alternative cryptocurrencies, all cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin. Swing trading is when holding an asset for a period of a few days to several weeks. Scalping is very short-term trading, buying and selling intraday, sometimes only holding for minutes.
31  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Crypto! on: July 17, 2021, 03:20:20
Been in crypto since mid 2017, spot trading BTC on high timeframe and using alts for scalping/swing trades.

Been kinda blocked since mid June where I failed a fear test I guess, breathing stopped mid shift and I kept trying to take one last breath, so that ended that.

Only had a handful strange LD's since then, got bit by a talking dog in one, lol. Another nightmarish one ended with me calling out for my mother, then 2 rows of mothers appeared in mid air, they all seemed familiar but the right one wasn't there, only after calling her by name did she appear floating above me, so weird..

Wow that's creepy, I would be a little worried too. If you live in an apartment and happen to talk in your sleep or vocalized the scream, someone could have heard you and is messing with you. Other then that I have no suggestions.

I've heard "thousands of voices" one time right before entering the vibrational state, they were very high pitched, and sounded angry. So I'm a bit curious as to how the voices you heard sounded.

I myself welcome it. It's a sign that the shift is occurring. All I have to do is put up with a few moments of uncomfortableness, but the reward for that patience is well worth it.

 I guess you have never had a experience where you awaken in full SP and find your legs being raised. Then you are completely upside down being spun through the ceiling in your room like some kind of spinning top. ... 

Nope, never had anything happen while in SP, sounds wild.

Quote
or you stare into a candle, close your eyes and soon a vibration begins that is so wild, it's like being in the middle of Earthquake, with sounds so loud that you could swear a Helicopter was about to land on your roof. Yes, that's pretty extreme, but it can happen, I know that through first hand experience!   shocked

Like being in the middle of a earthquake with extremely loud rumble roaring sound, that I have experienced and loved it. But it didn't come on out of nowhere full blast, it was a gradual build up over a few seconds.

But when it's like someone sneaks up behind you put a gun on each side of your head and fire, that's not for me. And I don't see how it would be possible not to react to something like that.

This latest experience seems to fit with another step forward in your progress, at least IMO. It reads very similar to the “exploding head syndrome”. It does catch you unaware and somehow unprepared for its’ intensity, I experienced it a couple times early on, I think Lumaza reported it early on, and I’ve noticed it in others’ early reporting. Maybe it has to do with some chakra or energy reconfigurations that need to take place, but I think it is a clear signpost of your continued progress.

Trust it and continue on.

Good to know, I'm hoping it was a one time occurrence.

Your conclusion sounds just about spot on to me. Great job and love reading about your progress.

Thanks Nameless smiley

It could be that it ended so you could bring a conscious recall of your experience back with you. Had you had entered the School, you might have forgotten everything that occurred. I have had to abort adventures earlier then I wished as well due to that fact. This is part of the balancing act we always speak of here.

Hmmm.. Could be, Hadn't thought of it that way.

210616 (trying to fall asleep)
Maybe I've been overdoing it lately, because when going to sleep I automatically went into "phase mode" tonight. Had a bunch of click out's(or rather managed to fall asleep) guessing combined amounting to around 1½ hour of sleep, at one point gave up annoyed I couldn't fall asleep so got up and drank some water, still tired so went back to bed.

And then it finally happened smiley, went from awake to the NPR without any gaps, the body just kind of faded away and there I was, IN the darkness. Forward motion, went through a couple of white rotating triangle outlines, the background went to a deeper black, speed increased a lot and I flew along a trail of stars in a spiral path around them. At first it was a little to much going so fast, got that sinking feeling like on a roller coaster, gave into it and relaxed and the feeling went away. It lasted about 15 seconds then landed on a incline path up a hill on a meadow, walked up the hill to the top where there were a small flock of tiny sheep, the size of cats. Petted the cat-sheep for a while then noticed some mushrooms in the grass that looked a bit like liberty caps, was tempted to eat some but decided not to. Walked down the other side of the hill, and to my disappointment saw a ordinary brick building that looked out of place, walked around it and found myself in a city. Going down a street surrounded by young adults with backpacks on, someone calling my name but couldn't figure out where it was coming from, at some point noticed I also had a backpack on. Got to a big staircase leading into a a school of some sort I'm guessing, but didn't follow the others into the school because I wanted to go explore, only got a small distance away from the staircase before waking up.

I'm thinking it ended because I didn't follow the "script" and wanted to go do my own thing, oh well, maybe next time I'll be lucid enough to remember to go where the experience takes me.

I think it's because it comes on spontaneously and ever so quickly too.

Spot on IMO!

If only there had been some kind of lead in, a feeling that something was about to happen, anything! Then I might have had a chance to relax through it. But this was completely out of the blue.

Do you remember back in the 80's when "Subliminal Advertising" was running wild? Skulls and crossbones, naked ladies in the ice cubes of alcohol related adds. It took awhile, but that got banned. So did alcohol ads in magazines. They tried the same thing on TV as well.

Too "young" to remember that smiley

Quote
They put blips in commercials that were so fast, one frame or so, that your conscious mind didn't register them. But you "subconscious" did.

This I do remember.

Did a bit of googling and found this https://www.businessinsider.com/subliminal-ads-2011-5?r=US&IR=T apparently the single frame stunt goes all the way back to 1957.

210615 (phasing practice)
Focus on (top and center of head) going inward away from the eyes to the mental screen, but without "placing" anything on it, when I do this it feels like there is a pressure build up in the head and the hypnagogic imagery doesn't make me move focus back to the eyes so easily, so I was "chasing" that feeling. Clicked out, turned to my other side and continued, clicked out again, saw some pretty black and white geometric hypnopompic imagery after waking up, didn't move and continued to focus inward.

After some time, out of nowhere a fast loud deep WOOOOOOP sound, felt like both ears popped simultaneously and the feeling of going to a single point, or like I disappeared somehow. Immediately sat up in the bed very fast, felt rattled and had cold sweat, heavy/tired feeling in the head for about a half hour afterwards.

Didn't much care for this one, it felt very physical and like something wrong was happening. There was no choice to abort, more like a fight or flight response. But still can't help wonder what it might have led to..

Congratulations on your progress! I get the sense that you are realizing your own progression over the last year, it seems slow at times, but as I read back over your experiences within this thread I can definitely see it. You are now smoothing out the process of phasing with your relaxation and rundown routines. But it's not just there that the progress is apparent. Small aspects of each experience are shifting/changing and your focus is tightening and your overall awareness is increasing.
Thanks EV!

Yes, the progress is there, however slow. Keeping a log(and the journal on here) have really helped me stick with it and realize my progress. For instance, I've noticed that my progress/successes come in groups with "dead" periods in-between, so now I kinda know what to expect and don't get discouraged so easily. Also nice to see the frequency of experiences (slowly) increase.

Quote
The gaps and click-outs as your awareness shifts into and out of these states are good signs, don't fight this; higher level teaching is likely taking place; adjustments. It feels a bit frustrating but it is actually a very good thing.

That's reassuring, never thought of it that way.

Quote
Your last experience I think was a very important step into a next higher level of learning called a 'Simulation'. These are tightly-controlled and managed areas in the NP of personal instruction which involve your personal characteristics within them, but I have noticed some general aspects such as the giant warehouse that you get lost in. The warehouse is what you interpret as the boundaries or demarcation of the Simulation's specific environment and your sensing this should be a clue to future experiences; this won't be the last one. They will build in complexity and challenge. In this one you were to address an audience without understanding the material. You apparently did this well and a celebration ensued. The celebration was sincere but also offered another lesson, the flying and the shrinking- both demonstrations of abilities only available to you in the NP. That was another success. The cute girl at the end was possibly a sexual challenge that is thrown at most of us from time to time, another small test or "pop quiz", lol! The "Boss" was possibly a guide in charge of the Simulation. Take some time to reflect on the consistency of the theme or story narrative that was presented and how this is now different from prior experiences. This is a time when things get really fun and challenging, good job!

Oh man, I have failed a lot of "pop quizzes", lol. Kidding aside, I really appreciate your input, you have given me lots to think about!

We tend to do that in this practice. One step forward, two steps back! Until one day it hits us. That's why Tom Campbell says "it is us that needs to get out of the way and allow the natural shift to occur". Every time we use a technique it teaches us a bit more each time on ways to do just that.

Very true! I've changed my approach now to starting with noticing, then after getting relaxed and the patterns/colors start to appear I do a rundown. Have "switched" to the NP a few times now, but every time I've woken up soon after I become aware I'm dreaming. There also seems to be a little gap where I lose consciousness.

210605 (semi-lucid dream)
Woke up in the middle of the night, tried phasing but fell back asleep and had a lucid dream.

In a big factory of some kind everything looked old and worn down, there were many rooms and levels and I kept getting lost. Got approached by The boss and told I had to give a presentation/sales pitch, told him I was new and had no idea what was going on but he was like, you'll do fine no problem, don't remember the presentation but apparently I did good and there was a celebration in the cafeteria. Flew around the cafeteria for a little bit, back at the table I was sitting at they expressed approval of my flying, suddenly the guy sitting opposite to me shrunk down to about an inch and flew around the table. Asked him how he did that, told me he used a drug and showed me some white crystalline powder, he gave me a little to try for free (the first one is always free, lol), smoked it with a pipe handed to me by another guy and we had some fun flying while miniaturized. Back at the table again he told me something about numbers, the number 3 had to be written double size of other numbers/letters and they didn't call it three, but some strange name I can't remember. Bought a fistful of the powder for 150 which was a lifetime supply according to the guy, not a bad deal, lol.

The rest is a bit hazy. The factory started to fall apart, standing on a giant platform up high that started to plummet to the ground, but right before it hit the ground it reversed and went back up. The boss who was responsible for it falling apart tried to escape in what looked like a helicopter, I flew after him and dragged it back down grin, and he got caught. Had a long conversation/flirted with with a cute girl (always cute girls in the NP for some reason).

260513 (phasing practice - micro semi-LD)
Lying down in bed headphones on listening to some relaxing nature sounds.

Entered a dream state/semi-lucid dream. A entrance/door, inside a pyramid ? Me down in a gully up to my neck. A guy and girl in front of the door, everything sand colored. Throwing a couple pebbles past the guy to get his attention, he was looking through some kind of apparatus/glasses, jumping around waving hands/peace signs, girl next to him sees me, end.

Back to noticing/looking into the darkness, but the entrance/doorway remained in front of my eyes, tried zooming/going into the doorway, instead of me moving towards it, part of it came flying towards me right up in my face then faded away. Looked/focused at the remaining part trying to keep it there as long as possible and maybe get back to the dream state, it faded away after about 30 seconds, then I ended the session.

Then it hit me, is this what phasing is, going into a lucid dream from a wake state ? Is that "all" there is to it ?

Up until now I have been focusing on getting the imagery/patterns to appear when noticing, and getting past the "overload". Have I been going about this all wrong, is that just a biproduct of going into the dream/np state and not really a goal in itself ? lol I think I may have overcomplicate things (going about it kinda backwards) grin
48  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: How hard/narrow of focus do you use for the visuals when noticing/phasing? on: May 26, 2021, 08:50:59
Nice to meet you too! I'm curious to hear more about how your practice has progressed. We seem to be having a lot of similar symptoms. Feeling like you're on the cusp of something just for it to never lead anywhere, or the visuals that never morph further, or the physical sensations that never do anything are all too familiar to me. You say it stopped working, did something else happen? Have you navigated around it at all?

A quick rundown of my progress so far:

In the beginning the classic method of mind awake body asleep worked, and lead to the vibrations and
projection. Basically just lying completely still while trying to keep the mind blank(meditating) for hours at a time, usually while listening to some binaural beats (this one has worked for me, it's pretty raw and may not be everyone's cup of tea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgdVfILNJb8). Had limited visuals at this point, mostly dark purple. Only got to the vibrations from a wake state one time though, would "always" click out/fall asleep and then wake up in the vibrational state.

After the above stopped working, I had a few LD's/OBE's here and there without trying, but sadly the
vibrations appears to have stopped.

For a period of time I then experienced partial sleep paralysis(numb body), pressure on top of the head and at the nasal bridge when trying to project. And as you say 'Feeling like you're on the cusp of something just for it to never lead anywhere'.

Then the visuals really started to appear and the dark purple began being replaced with white and bright
purple/pink. At first tiny dots like distant stars and later cool looking patterns like white plasma floating
around, or a black area floating across with this Mandelbrot looking stuff in white/bright purple on the
trailing edge (also seen a big friendly wolf face staring at me quite a few times lol, no idea what that's
about). From there I began getting "overloads" or "exploding head" as Lu has mentioned. I my case it starts with small white flashes in the peripheral, eventually everything turns white and I either get "knocked out" of the meditative state or click out(this went on for a month or two, almost gave up hope of getting past it). The feeling of this "overload" is really intensive, to me it feels like your about to pass out. Recently I've managed to get past it on two occasions while staying conscious, the first time leading to the void I guess (a calm, silent blackness with a little 3d feeling to it, but not in it nor just looking at it), second time to golden yellow visuals. But then in my session this morning I got to the everything turns white part but no overload this time, I wonder what's next..

Once again, another excellent focus technique. Motion based visualization is very effective. Do you ever feel a "etheric tug" to one side or another? If you do, you would love my technique that I made in this thread here. It really taught me quite a bit and helped me learn to navigate my NPR destinations. I wrote this under my prior name "Lionheart" that I used years ago here. A lot of it came as a result of Robert Bruce's NEW technique. Learning how to manipulate that "etheric energy" was very useful.
http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/how_exactly_do_you_perform_the_phantom_wiggle_method-t44583.0.html

"etheric tug" is a rarity for me, used a rocking technique (like being on a swing or hammock) in the past many years ago but didn't stick with it for long. I'll give your technique from the link a go.

BTW tried the waving hand thing from the thread you linked to, talk about getting strange sensations in the hands lol grin I will have to play around with that some more.
