I've been to Westeros, beyond the Wall of GOT, and loads of other places, some even modern day and on Earth.

Barristan Selmy, Jamie Lannister, Crowley are just a few of the loads of characters I have walked alongside of at some point in my travels.

Very cool. Are you talking about Crowley from Supernatural? I'm gonna hope I don't bump into him in an OBE anytime soon  cheesy
Although I'll take a ride in Dean's Chevy Impala If I get the chance ^__^

Out of curiosity, what method/approach do you use to obe?

Peer into that darkness deeper and you shall see much more!  smiley

 There's a whole new reality just waiting behind that darkness. The trick is, you have to show how much you want to see it. You do this by maintaining your focus and reigning in any fears you have, that might sideline your current experience. Just a "thought" is all there is between success or failure now.  wink

great post, gonna be re-reading this before I attempt in a few hours. Must remember to 'prove myself'.
Still trying to get the hang of the Bedeekin style SP induction, posts like yours and szaxx's here are
exactly why I'm always dropping by this forum.

Edit: and as for TC's question, I personally just experience strong vibrations and then pop out, no spooky sounds and such so far and definitely no sense of being unable to move. Different for everyone it seems? Smiley

Wow, very interesting topic, would love to hear other peoples experiences as well. Since the day
I first heard about AP I've had similar locations set as goals.
Examples would be: The Iron Throne, High Hrothgar, Tatooine, Konoha, Hyrule, Rivendell
I was hoping I might even land my own Astral Travel show on the Discovery Channel ;p

Unfortunately, I haven't left my neighborhood yet, there's way too much cool stuff going on around here.

Hey,

Thanks for the suggestions. I've read one Peterson book but can't find any free ones online, as mentioned.
Interested in reading more of his work though.

Similar opinion here in relation to Castaneda's books, reading the first book and picking out insightful pages I can relate
to and then applying them to astral projection and meditation as oppose to the hallucinogenic stuff.
Real or not, I'm not too bothered. The wisdom found in the series and the sense of adventure derived from the possibility
that it Just Might have all happened is enough for me to keep reading, at least for now Smiley


 Any more suggestions are welcome, still searching!

Thanks, checking out some of his stuff out now.
In the mean time I bought some Carlos Castenada books, I think he used hallucinogenics a lot but still, should be
some decent stories / incite in there especially in regards to inter-dimensional travel and the like.

8  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: A show with Astral Projection as the focus! on: October 06, 2013, 22:55:49
Looks good, now to find a decent torrent  undecided
6 years old so might have to buy the series? or maybe stream.
Interesting though, thanks

 grin Hi

Just finished the Monroe trilogy and I'm now looking for more of the same kind of astral literature that's easy going and talks more about the adventures of the author as oppose to 'how to OBE' and 'this is how the universe works'.
Trying to avoid heavy reading like My big TOE for eg despite how could those books are.

Currently browsing this Book Reviews forum to death but if anyone has anything they've read that I could look into that'd be cool  cool

Thanks,
Ellis

High hopes are good. Expectations are not.

Calm mind with no expectations pays dividends.

The years of trying have beaten down my expectations some-what tbh  cheesy.
But nonetheless very wise words. I'll remember them

I'll finish by randomly dropping a very awesome song entitled, 'High Hope'     smiley

In regards to mindfulness one of the most inspiring things for me is 'The peaceful warrior' by Dan Millman, a film/book I've seen mentioned around here a few times. The film is crammed with inthenowisms.

Often times when I decided I'd be spending most of the day attempting to stay in the present, I'd eat breakfast and totally forget all about it for at least 5 hours  cheesy To remedy this I started setting up an alarm that would make a short ring every 20 minutes and that wouldn't need snoozing. Eventually I'm guessing I won't need it and I'll remember to stay present at various times during the day.

It's a long road back to living

Wicked, thanks for the replies guys (including chopstickfox, who's post disappeared  tongue )
It helps to get everything straight before spending weeks/months on a method.

The night after I wrote this the vibrations hit me about 8 minutes in. Had a confusing 5 second OBE before clicking out.
It's good progress though so far and I've got high hopes for the next week or so.

Hey  grin
I've been re-reading the 'Bedeekins method' post over on Xanths site for a couple of weeks and despite past success I've decided to not Method-hop until I get this one down. I have a couple of questions if that's cool:

1. You mention sleeping in the evening, sadly I can't fit a nap into my day until 1.30am onwards how good would you say the following set up is for getting in that 'groggy state' that's perfect for sp induction: Sleep at 3.30 till 4.30am--awake for 30min--lay down to induce at 5 (I find it easy to practice SP when its day light, keeps the creepy demon folk away  wink )

2. Would it be unwise for one to hit up some Skyrim during the post nap wake up? On the one hand I've heard staring at a monitor hampers LD/AP chances during WBTB and on the other hand I feel so crappy when I wake up after 1 hour of sleep that reading or meditation seem like a bit of bummer  :/

3. Are there any specific mental practices I could take up in the day time in relation to this method that might increase my chances?

Thanks

yeah his videos are great, I remember him deleting some good ones in the past that i found helpful too.

Despite using affirmations I still can't seem to end up aware during the 'micro wakes' without the use of
WBTB or alarms. Guess I'll use those to form the habit then hope for the best  cheesy

17  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Daily success and the importance of REM? on: June 24, 2013, 10:47:26
Greetings members of the Pulse  grin Not logged in for a while, very busy atm.

I've been OBEing consistently with the following method this week and have a quick question:

1. Used Audacity to create a 4 second alarm sound for my mobile. (does not require me to turn it off)
2. Wait for the alarm to wake me up in the early hours of the morning.
3. Remain still and calm immediately on waking.
4. Separate from body after 10+ seconds. 


Bearing in mind the above method, how important are sleep cycles?
The reason I ask is because sometimes the alarms wake me up and I get the desired results, sometimes I simply sleep through them.
My initial thoughts were that the alarms that go off when I'm in REM work perfectly and the NREM don't.

However, I don't particularly want to believe this, it seems limiting.
If some folks here at the pulse can close their eyes and project on a whim, shouldn't it be possible to wake up at any point in the night and project?

Any thoughts/input would be much appreciated.

A good day to return to the forum then I guess.

Congratulations Xanth!  cheesy

this reminds me this quote:  "we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. " - Bill Hicks

Learning to be mindful every minute of the day, fully experiencing and enjoying every moment of life in the correct state of mind
that's the big challenge.  smiley

I'll have to pass on a zombie apocalypse, in the UK we barely have any guns.
We'd have to take a hands-on approach and my cardio is really not cut out for that  rolleyes

When people say "find a job you love, that way it never gets boring", I'm pretty sure they're talking about your job  cheesy
 Sounds very fun indeed.
Couple that with your 4000+ OBEs and it sounds like you're living it large. xD
22  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: This put a huge smile on my face!!! on: February 14, 2013, 21:01:43

Sweet baby jesus! Incredible!
I take it you also work in a similar area Bedeekin? What does your job entail?

All cool stuff  cool
25  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Alarm clock method worked! on: February 14, 2013, 20:21:14
I've got a questions though - is it sufficient just to wake up turn of the alarm and try to doze off again or I must get up and  move a bit?Cuz I am unable to replicate the results although i am always waking up some 10 minutes before the  4 am alarm

oooh, great question Simo, I'm also wondering the same thing.

Since I've started staying in bed when I wake up for WBTB I've not been getting results. So far it seems getting up and being active
is important. But what else can we do to get the best out of our Wake back to bed stuff?
I've heard people say not to eat and get some sun if its out when you get up but most of the time these outside factors
don't have as much bearing on OBEs as some people 'think'.

I also keep sleeping through alarms so I'm gona pump up the damn volume tonight, I'm such a lazy invalid  tongue


EDIT: Great post by Its_all_bad, answers most of my questions, thanks
