126  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: new to astral projecting on: August 21, 2016, 07:18:26
Welcome to the Pulse Astral MoNK!

I will add to the very good advice that both Phildan1 and Nameless have given you. Your first priority is to remember your experiences, whatever they may be: dreams, lucid dreams, OBEs or whatever.

You can and must increase your ability to remember these Non-Physical experiences. The first and most simple thing to do is to work on re-programming your mind, which simply means adding some basic commands over a few days or weeks, reinforcing the desire to "remember" your experiences.

Every night, before you go to sleep, you should repeat a phrase that you have decided upon. Repeat it three times a night; write it down several times during the day for a week or two. Something like:

"I want to remember my dreams and out of body experiences. Every night I remember my experiences."

"I give myself permission to have and to remember my dreams and out of body experiences."

Say it out loud, repeat it mentally. Hear it, "feel" it, mean it. This is an aspect of the "intent" Nameless mentioned; Intent is a supremely important concept in NP experience and this is one of the first applications of it.

Your mind, your subconscious, is like a semi-organic computer and it really does respond to simple programming instructions. It may take a week or more, but you will see results.

The next step is to make sure that you start recording your experiences, no matter how incomplete, in a Dream Journal; this will further reinforce your  subconscious desire to remember your NP experiences.

Once you have some progress with remembering, this should give you some initiative to explore some of the Techniques that are described within the high-lighted blue "stickies" at the top of the first three Boards; they are informative and well worth your time.

If this is a recurring theme then I think it is a pretty straight-forward communication between your Higher Self/Teacher/Guide and your subconscious Self. You are being asked if you are ready for some new learning to begin; I'm guessing it's likely learning about the NP side of Reality. You have even recognized the "push" to enter the school but you have some resistance. Is the resistance PR-based, such as daily life, work, family, etc.? Or are there some beliefs or thinking that are possibly holding you back?

You already have a good idea of your level of awareness and control within a LD, you know how to operate within the environment. The teaching and testing will likely consist of being introduced into situations (Simulations) which will challenge you on many and differing levels. If you look back on some of your more prominent LDs, you may find some of this testing already happening including the school and school bus motifs.

Much of what I have read and experienced points to the idea that whether it's a NP teacher or your higher self, at some point we are asked to make a definite decision and declaration that we wish to begin learning.
 
Kurt Leland has an article that gives good perspective on this type of learning.

128  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: Lucid Dreaming In Reverse: Dream Persona Possession on: August 05, 2016, 10:36:25
This is a great topic to have pulled forward Nameless, thank you!

There are several very good insights within the responses and they invite some lengthy consideration.

I made a post regarding this a couple years ago, if I can only figure how to copy it here. In the meantime:

The most simple delineation of these two mind-states is to me the difference between the Physical Reality (PR) mind-state and the Non-Physical (NPR) mind-state. Or the two Personalities, as Szaxx has suggested.

Leo makes the excellent observation that the initial NPR mind-state is somewhat "primitive". I agree but will add that with further experience and understanding, a new form of awareness emerges, deepens and evolves.

Cainem provides the suggestion that these two mind-states/Personalities may merge at some point; I lean in this direction at the present time, allowing for a necessary dexterity to remain aware of both.

Continued Non-Physical (NPR) experiences demonstrate that we need to learn new senses, sensibilities, modalities for learning these new NPR environments. Initially, we just try to understand these new senses within our current PR modalities: see, hear, feel, taste, smell...the NPR forces us to find new descriptions, new definitions; how do we define 360 degree vision? Zero gravity? Moving through solid material, bi-location awareness or single-point awareness?

Nameless, you are beginning to question the differences between LDs and OBEs and APs and the varying degrees of knowledge and experience they each can afford you...that is a keen insight...there is good stuff within each, but this realization invites a new level of differentiation of these experiences. Fun stuff! And the sandbox only gets bigger! grin

With the OBE/AP experience...are we being asked to abandon the PR experience for the NPR experience? Or is it an adaptation, an assimilation of the two...and possibly experiences even beyond that...?

For anyone intrigued by the exploration of the relationship of music, frequency and consciousness, I can suggest an oddly attractive UK film about an alternate reality world with somewhat varied physics from ours; it's a romance with a couple good twists in it and a unique adventure.

By coincidence, it is simply called Frequencies.

I have tried asking for a meeting with my Guide/Higher Self but received very little that is recognizable; it seems that I am to be kept in the dark for awhile; but I do know there is activity; my experiences speak to that.

I share your sense of frustration and slight anger...it seems that this is part of the learning...

Szaxx is wonderful at touching on some of the points that awaken our memories of our energetic reality.

As long as you actively seek new experiences, you will be given them; so don't stop expecting them.

I look forward to your sharing your further adventures.
131  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Everything You Could Ever Want To Know About SLEEP PARALYSIS on: July 26, 2016, 10:19:26
Nameless,
What seems to me as evident from your active presence here and the quality and knowledge of your posts, is that something has been awakened within you. The fact of this awakening is apparently being "announced" to you in a variety of ways.

Whether it is an awakening from your Higher Self, your subconscious, your Teacher/Guardian (s) or some alien intelligence, this is knowledge that you need to work out for yourself.

The fact that it is happening for you is pretty apparent to those of us who have already experienced it to varying degrees.

The SP alien stuff is pretty raw...I've been there...just go with your gut, your intuition like you are doing...you sound like you are keeping it well in balance and finding the proper perspective.

I get frustrated the same way...but they are not playing games and they will NOT spell it out for you (or me  grin)...it is a series of teachings that come through in very symbolic and personal terms...at least during this period.

Share what you are comfortable with, because it does help others; and ask or PM anything of greater concern.

This is an interesting gem to pull out of the past Nameless; you are doing your research. I had a slightly similar Southern Baptist/otherwise agnostic influence growing up; and yes, no one to share any of this with, bounce ideas off... lol.

This awakens an old memory of motivating/affecting others as a child; not quite to Szaxx's degree but noticeable nonetheless; I also had an equivalency issue with demonstrating the effect. It was a childhood "phase"... grin
133  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Affirmations on: July 16, 2016, 10:38:06
I have recommended the use of affirmations many times. It is not just for beginners but also more experienced projectors when we slow down in our experiences.

Affirmations serve to re-program our internal computer; they communicate simple wishes or instructions to our inner/Higher Self.

They clarify, they instruct...they are very basic programming.

They don't always work (there may be another process at work), but when they do it seems almost stupidly simple...all you have to do is MAKE THE REQUEST of your inner/Higher/whatever Self...

Keep them short and simple...talking to your subconscious/inner self is like talking to your dog...you don't lecture your dog (because he just tilts his head and stares at you funny-like and ignores you anyway)...you just give simple commands. Present-tense, no negatives.

My thinking also includes the idea that early on our resistance to having an OBE may reflect a natural self-defense mechanism. In this case, we should try an affirmation that asks permission and agreement from our inner/Higher Self to move beyond this defense mechanism. This could involve variations on the theme and may require some time to allow for integration of the OBE idea and acceptance.

Affirmations, in the form of encouraging words, certainly cannot hurt the process. Fairly inexpensive, as well.

True contentment can be realized within any of these experiences or none at all; it is acceptance of the experience itself and nothing further expected nor needed.

I can skydive in the morning, go fishing in the afternoon and watch the sunset in the evening...each invites contentment in its own way; the challenge is to realize that.

Not always, but many times...I get it.

Yes- All these "downloads" are leading us somewhere; otherwise, we would have not experienced them or noted them. I don't have any more understanding than that I have had them and the fact that at the moment I received them, the knowledge that they were somehow very significant.

I have come to trust that that recognition is all that is required at the present moment. When I need to know more, I will be shown more...

All I can do presently is to remain open to more...

These experiences may also speak to the phenomenon of crop circles and the idea that they are communicating to us on very subconscious levels.

These events can also be looked upon as new experiences that are understood within new personal paradigms that will open and develop as our NP senses within a new area of the Non-Physical open and are realized.

Just like our first NP experiences challenge our sensory expectations, we are confused at first, but then we learn to incorporate the new sensory modality...

The downloads indeed remain somewhat mysterious.

You're welcome Nameless.

I came here in 2008, not quite sure what to share or what to expect, but overall the experience has been incredibly rewarding.

Whatever league you are in, you can find it here, and helpful people to move even deeper. Plus, you will find the opportunity to help others with their experiences.

It is a great forum...so I hope you decide to stay awhile.  smiley

Along with Nameless's good observation, I would add that it might also be that your Higher/Inner Self has decided that it is time to communicate some ideas to you.

Be open, be receptive, be thankful...any uptick in LD activity is always a good thing!

Hopefully, you will find more acceptance and understanding here; though, that's not to say we are entirely free of some of the idiocy that roams the internet.

There are good subjects to search and this can begin with the dark blue sticky threads at the top of most boards.

If your bent is towards Remote Viewing, then Bluefirephoenix's posts may be of especial interest.

140  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Re: Shadow person??? on: July 03, 2016, 09:11:44
Experiences such as this one, where you recognize that you are either in Sleep Paralysis or a similar condition which results from being partially-focused within both the Physical and the Non-Physical, can lead to mis-interpretation. This is a very easy trap to fall into, in the early stages of OBE awareness.

In this condition, with partial focus and awareness that you are still within proximity of your physical body, the energetic conditions are somewhat magnified, causing events such as the one you described. Keep in mind that under such conditions, the impressions of your subconscious are manifested quite readily and some very real-seeming and bizarre creations can and will occur. Thus, the classic "shadow entity"; every culture describes it in its own terms. This is a classic form of Sleep Paralysis phenomenon.

It may have been your sister projecting, and maybe even some overlay you impressed upon it, but I give that the lesser probability; more likely just SP hypnogogics which can be remarkably complex and subtle. This should give you some insight into how complex and powerful your subconscious can materialize within your experience; but also understand that this is a localized phenomenon that diminishes entirely as you move away from your physical body (5-10 meters) when you do achieve an energetic exit.

If you experience more of these episodes, you will become accustomed to them. The key is to remain calm, refuse any fear, react with equanimity and just observe how things unfold. It is mostly a kind of static but can also be a form used to test your fear response and maturity. The details you will come to understand, are almost always dredged from your personal subconscious, so you can look for common, repeating elements.

It is problematic and difficult to translate at times, but an experience nonetheless, so be sure to record it in your notes; it may prove helpful later.

The value of these experiences are not always immediately apparent, and may only become evident weeks, months or years later.

This is still a good sign of improvement. Well done!
141  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Trying obe4u techniques on: June 10, 2016, 06:42:16
An increase in lucid dreams is a good sign that your intent to have NP experiences is now involving your subconscious/inner/higher self and you are now getting some environments to work within.

The trick to working within these environments and extending the LD is to "go with the flow"...that is, go along with the dream thread as it is presented and don't get distracted by small inconsistencies that will catch your attention. This can be frustrating for awhile as you figure out what keeps a LD running versus what kicks you out. You want 100 percent control and your effort to gain more lucidity may work for awhile, but eventually you are expected to stay within the LD theme and learn what is being presented there.

This is where you really start to learn how important it is that your sense of "feel" has to develop, both within a situation or with regard to even very small things...and frankly, a lot of trial and error will likely occur.

One thing is when an object catches your attention and you focus in closely on it...and the object begins to waver visually for a second or three...this is a sign that you are heading off course and should re-focus back to the general theme of the LD.

This is just one suggestion and a hint of the necessary differences that are required to develop between the Physical mindset and the Non-Physical mindset.

142  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: Presenting a question for a Dream simulation? on: May 19, 2016, 09:34:32
Okay,
So you have a good range of experiences where you have experienced a variety of these SP-related and early exit phenomena. Weird things can and will occur from time to time and you will gradually come to accept them simply as a range of effects that can be encountered.

Don't make the mistake of getting overwhelmed by or too-focused on any one of these variations, most of the difficulty is your attempt to perceive/interpret what is happening...and quite honestly, it is all too easy to come to wrong conclusions. So just be open to it all, write down what you experience, and be ready to change your initial interpretations as time passes and your experiences increase; your interpretations will change over time.

I know the "aaahh come on really" feeling quite well when it comes to this experience repeating time after time. I can't explain it except that it may be a natural, instinctive reaction that sometimes we can bypass it and other times we have to deal with it.

From the totality of what you have described, I would say that you are doing just fine, so don't worry about it. Just understand it for what it is. This is part of the early, somewhat disorienting experiences most of us are prone to have. Be confident in your safety and your ability.
143  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: Presenting a question for a Dream simulation? on: May 19, 2016, 06:11:55
Phalanx,
Your added descriptions are now making for a more complete picture of what is going on. I think you are experiencing many of the various effects of Sleep Paralysis and there is a Sticky in the first Board that is required reading for most beginning projectors.

One of my first conscious OBEs also involved vibrations and the propellor sound (a helicopter, in my case).

In your case, you might not have felt the physical paralysis that is normally the key indicator of SP, but that happens to varying degrees for different people; I have had it both ways many times.

SP can involve a broad range of hallucinatory effects- auditory, visual, tactile, emotional... The incredible FEAR that can generate is unmistakable and you will eventually learn that there is an energetic power behind the FEAR which is a signature that you can use to recognize what is going on and respond appropriately.

The response is always to calm yourself and refuse the FEAR. Be calm and just observe, nothing can harm you. It can frighten the crap out of you if you let it, but that's about it. This is a battle that is won or lost within a few seconds at most; you don't get much time to realize that you are in SP and you must immediately exercise control over your emotions.

This is a state or condition that apparently exists at a point where you are IN-BETWEEN the Physical and the Non-Physical Realities and the proximity of your consciousness to your physical body causes these effects and their intensity. It has been likened to a feedback effect as if you left your electric guitar leaning against it's amplifier with the volume turned high.

If you can exit the physical body and move away 15 to 30 feet, the effect diminishes and disappears completely. This also is dependent on the percentage of your awareness that transfers versus what remains behind.

Like Lumaza pointed out, this can be thought of as a test or challenge, to see if you are ready to move into these new realms. I also think it is somewhat a natural phenomenon; it still happens for me at times, even though I have dealt with it long ago and moved on.

I also think that all the material you are hearing/seeing/feeling is pulled from your personal subconscious memories; that is partly why it can be SO effective at throwing you off course; it is literally, personally-designed for you.

You are not the first person to report that when you called for your personal Saviors' protection, the entity simply laughed at you. This is your subconscious telling you that you can't hide from it. It is a tough moment!

You can try a question, but usually the response is gibberish or simply your subconscious toying with you (I wonder if Carl Jung ever had the opportunity?). Embracing the entity with a feeling of Pure Unconditional Love is usually the best answer, so LightBeam may have asked you the best question...
144  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: Presenting a question for a Dream simulation? on: May 14, 2016, 02:55:53
Bloodshadow, you make a particularly excellent insight about the Non-Physical in that the question arises -How much of what I read/listen to from various authors changes or shapes my beliefs and therefore my experiences in the NP?

The answer is that yes, it can and does; especially in the NP environment which is variably reactive to your thoughts and emotions.

So, finding an author whose perspective you can identify/resonate with can be very important. That's why I think it is good to gather many perspectives keeping in mind they will differ, but they are essentially describing the same thing.

Given enough personal experience, you begin to build your own "translation table" as Leland refers to his.

Phalanx,

I am glad that you found this excellent Leland article on Simulations. I found it very helpful in distinguishing certain issues that I was facing at the time in my LDs. I don't pretend to have every answer for why a LD abruptly ends, but I have found that there can be very subtle reasons that were not apparent to me at first.

 This is my current thinking: A LD can end immediately as your lucidity spikes up, you realize that you are aware and that spike of excitement takes awakens you. That is teaching you about controlling your emotions. The next subtle distinction, I realized after reading some of Leland's articles: You may have a perfectly valid question that you want an answer to, but the LD has already been designed to take you in another direction; and if you resist the lesson being offered...again, the simulation is ended. In fact, the simulation may have been set up to answer your question in a way you don't initially recognize. They don't want to just give you a verbal/telepathic answer, they want to give you a symbolic challenge that will do many things at once: Give you a physical/emotional/mental challenge that will allow you to answer your own question and with deeper understanding and value. Plus, they get to observe you in how you react and handle the challenge, to see what your natural abilities and strengths are.

Here are a couple of my Phasings and LDs from a couple years ago along with some excellent insights that were very helpful.
In the first one, I phased initially and had the clear intent to experience whatever was the next lesson I should have, provided by whatever guidance I was encountering; nothing more specific than that.

http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_projection_experiences/back_to_school-t44211.0.html

In this one, several months later, I had a definite intent to phase and visit somebody but was perceptive enough to recognize that my guide had something else in mind and so I didn't resist.

Sure.
146  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Trying to AP through LD. Help... on: May 11, 2016, 10:20:31
#1 The barrier effect - There is likely no single bit of information or insight that someone else can (or should) provide that will allow you to move beyond this point...this is an insight that is uniquely significant to you and for you alone to realize ...otherwise it will not have the proper importance or value to you. We can give some hints, some indicator of the direction to take, but beyond that we know to stay silent.

#2 Monroe's map of the Astral...I think your outlook on this is correct...take it as a "provisional belief", one that is good for current exploration but also open to re-definition as our knowledge increases...

Physical Reality....leads to Personal Astral Reality (Personal Dream Zone)...leads to/blends with the Collective Astral Reality/Afterlife Zone...which leads to the lower and upper Mental Planes...and so on, if you follow the Theosophical line of thought...(I don't pretend to know except that my own experience seems to have led at least into the lower Mental Planes)

The personal Astral is your own individual dreaming area: you have your personal learning experiences here, but you are segregated in that your uncontrollable emotions are kept away from the "collective areas" until you learn proper control.

This is just ONE of many ways to label our experiences here...choose your own labeling system as you move along. This is the way I see it at the present time, a provisional belief, and as my information changes, my categorization may change as well...

As for where you may find your "guides"...I guess that depends on a few things...I have looked for and called for mine, but I have had no response. It has been suggested to me by someone who I admit knows MUCH more than I know, that guidance may not be necessary at my level, that "they" prefer to observe how well I perform on my own, as it were. I did have one experience where I was obviously attended by another entity into and through an exciting experience (Fieldtrip) and another time when someone accompanied me during a visit to my recently deceased father. Other than that, I have been on my own or they have remained in the background.

As such, I'm not sure there is a "guide zone" to speak of. Some people can simply call out for them...that hasn't worked for me. The concept of "Intent" is very important nonetheless, and this can make all the difference at the right time. wink

Personally, I am thinking that guidance can come at any time, wherever you are... but they leave you on your own until you absolutely need them. In a sense, it is a perfect teaching system, brutal but fair and  astonishingly effective.

As Szaxx told me once and "they" told me once...you are never given a task that is beyond your abilities. It may push you right to your personal breaking point, but it won't be any more beyond what you are capable of.

#3 You are at a point I was a few years ago...I wondered if any guides were listening, did they care?

They DO care, they are watching for how you respond, the quality of your response. "They" may consist of otherworldly guides; they may also be one or more aspects of your Higher Self(s)...

Just know that this is an especially lonely time that many of us are going through, those of us searching for a higher, deeper truth. Keep the faith.

You are being watched and assisted and strengthened...that much even I have become aware of...

#4 Yes Kurt Leland  -If I could recommend one book, it is The MultiDimensional Human.

147  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Trying to AP through LD. Help... on: May 09, 2016, 11:16:46
Phalanx,

The "barrier effect" that you are encountering is a purely personal experience that YOU have to figure out. Many of the other experienced explorers here have gone through the same process, and often their individual experiences contain similar difficulties that you are going through; they will vary from person to person, in degree and duration. It is just not all entirely explainable from a single, general perspective.

Early on, our experiences all fall into readily identifiable categories...and some easy, helpful advice can be given. But at a certain point, a persons' individual experiences move to a point where advice is difficult to give, where your description is SO important that an experienced member might say, "yes, I experienced that, and this is what worked for me right here..."

I understand your usage of the Monroe Focus level terminology, and as much as I would agree, I also disagree on a couple points...It doesn't matter.

In a simplified form, you are looking to realize your experiences within the Collective Astral Consciousness...and I am going to tell you that you may not be quite ready for that; I am still not there completely myself, although I have had a few bites at the apple...I still can't guarantee when I get there and when I don't...this is a tough realization.

The area that you ARE still dealing with is the Personal Astral, or your particular dream dimension, your personal dream space. This is still a fully functional, very valid place for your development; as a matter of fact, you can't avoid it. This is where Lelands' ideas of "simulations" begin, and I CAN testify to that. Until you advance here, you won't go anywhere else, IMO...

 The Monroe Focus levels are great and maybe within the context of going to the  TMI Lab and being within that group energy they can get you to these various levels consistently; but the truth is that very few people actually experience the whole range of possibilities. It's not to say that a trip to TMI isn't valuable; it's just that you may not get all that you expect the first time around, and that is a big understanding that needs to take place.

What I offered in my first answer to you is still valid; you might add something about asking for guidance or moving into the higher levels...it never hurts to ask...so long as you do it with respect for who you are talking to...

A good question. I would be interested as well.

I haven't read a book on the traditional forms of meditation in many years, so someone else may have better recommendations. Any of the classic forms are beneficial- pure silence, pure emptiness, oneness, wholeness, passive, active, etc.

However, if your intended goal is to utilize meditation to assist in achieving an OBE, then I would suggest the active forms of meditation/visualization that are offered in a book such as Kurt Leland's, The Multidimensional Human.

If I had to throw away all my other books, it would be to keep this one. It provides a workable system which identifies and explains the Non-Physical senses that need to be understood and developed, and gives practical meditation/visualization exercises to develop these senses. These are not just theory; I can say that they work from my own experience and that his writings encompass more of what I have dealt with- the good, the bad, the ugly and the difficult...better than any of the hundred other books I have read. It doesn't pretend to be the "be all, end all, final say" on NP experience, in fact he is the first to say that this is just a provisional working system...my point being that it works...

I wish that I had this book forty years ago; I know that I shall still be referring to it twenty years from now, should I live that long, Lol...

Phalanx,

There is nothing here that you need to fix, in fact this shows that what you are doing is working to some degree. By using the methods you described you have re-programmed your inner computer and that software re-write is showing up in your dreams by dreaming about becoming lucid. This is a confirmation that your work is paying off.

One way that I look at this process is that this re-programming initiates an internal dialog with our many "selves": our conscious self, our sub-conscious self, our higher/spiritual self, etc. We don't just tell these selves that we have decided to start having OBEs; instead we make the request, ask permission, give permission...an internal, silent discussion then begins and how long this takes will vary from person to person.

In your case Phalanx, I would suggest including one or two simple affirmations to be used daily for a couple weeks. Write them down and repeat them 3 times every night or at different times of the day.

Something like-

"I ask permission of my inner/higher self to have conscious out of body experiences."

"I recognize when I am dreaming and become fully conscious within my dreams."

Quite often our learning in the Non-Physical requires these little half-steps to get to our destination.

You are doing fine. The fun should begin soon. wink
