Isaywhaat,

A seemingly odd question (and maybe a little personal) but are you quite depressed in your life at the moment? This question is related to you struggling to feel fully conscious.

I think it's good you document carefully your routine when you get up. I find doing this really helps you isolate why some days it works and doesn't. For example I discovered in my own routine if I got up and let my mind drift onto topics for even a few minutes of the day ahead before meditating this would affect my mental state a lot during compared with if I just focused on my intent for the meditation as soon as I got up and up to lying back down again.

No idea but on a side note if it is photographic memory I know for sure you wouldn't make a good remote viewer. Only people who can't do it with any reliability.

I think the 'Help!' in the title was a little unnecessary. Perhaps save it for if the devil knocks on your astral door.

The book Projectiology by Waldo Viera has hundreds of methods. It's over 1000 pages

Perhaps the children need retrieving first. Maybe then there would be no fear for it to feed off. It doesn't really sound like a place the children should be even if it wasn't there.

At the moment I don't think it has any effect on the science community if you provide even the most infallible evidence. They will just decide your methodology was flawed or you are a hoaxer.

I also don't think it matters who does the experiment. You see noted scientists try to investigate this stuff and as soon as they find out for themselves that it is real they lose all credibility in the scientific community and they just become another woo woo crackpot.

**n00bie alert.**

Visualization question, are we supposed to not move our eyes at all while doing visualization? That can be a challenge.

How do you then get your body asleep while keeping the mind awake? I figured you were supposed to try to get tired enough that your body then goes to sleep, while you some how get your mind to stay awake. I either eventually fall asleep, or stay awake for an hour or more and finally just give up!!

I personally think you are over complicating something that really doesn't need to be. After all is not the point of meditation to relinquish thought and the logical left brain. You're giving it fodder. Now you've brought attention to your eyes it has become an issue. If you just let go and not consider it then it isn't a problem.

I keep reiterating in my posts that most peoples problems on here are their mindset and the mental foundations are not properly in place because they hear about some awesome new method guaranteed to work then get annoyed when it doesn't. I'm not saying you in particular. Rather a recurring trend I notice on here.
33  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Need Some Advice... on: February 09, 2015, 17:07:22
I picked up that you said you need 'serious advice' on this. Taking this stuff too seriously will only inhibit your progress. How can you relax if you're serious? This process needs to be fun. Be child like about it, play. Beating yourself up about failure is a downward spiral. Perhaps just let go a little bit

Don't pay too much attention to what you assume is focus 10 (mind-awake-body-asleep) based on what you've read. Everyone experiences it differently. I know people who have full awareness of their body in focus 10 and are getting so much information they have to sit up and write just to make sure they get it all (all the while in focus 10).

Over on Bruce Moens Afterlife Knowledge forum is a woman called Vicky. She wrote a book documenting her spontaneous PK experiences which is really interesting. If I remember rightly when she has her child she passes on some of her abilities.

It's called Persephones journey by Vicky short. A very personal book that is a good read

Might sound corny but a lot of people melt fear with love. Maybe worth doing some heart centric meditations that open your heart space. Or perhaps hemi-sync gateway wave I track called release and recharge aimed at removing fears and the emotions associated with such fears.
36  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Why Astral Projections Feel “More Real” Than Physical Waking Life on: January 29, 2015, 13:30:57
Nice thread. I like to look at it this way...

There is only one thing you can say definitively about you own reality, "I am having an experience in the present moment." That is the only thing you can't argue with but you can only say it about yourself (am I wrong? Can anyone think of another?) Every other facet is debatable. For example, I don't know that anyone else truely exists. They may be my imagination as with everything else . After all, what we perceive is just electrical signals interpreted by a brain (apparently). So truly all a person can say is I am having an experience in the present moment. What that experience is I don't know.

So based on this logic reality can only be where our awareness is focused in the present moment. Whether that be watching tv, visiting the akashic records or tripping balls on magic mushrooms. All of these are having an experience in the present moment. That is where your consciousness is focused in the present. So that is real. That is reality.

Also like to quote frank Demarco who said if something effects change in me is that reality? Makes pretty much everything reality

38  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Any way to change your unique method of APing? on: January 23, 2015, 16:48:34
There are teachers following and guiding your progress...that possibility takes some getting used to.


What I find more and more is that I may go into a meditation with one method planned but I make the shift via a method that I don't think came from me but rather a helper (in the form of intuition). For example I would never have thought exiting would occur by mentally moving by non-physical hands upwards. That's it. No other part of my body. When that came to me I just did it without analysing and it worked. Similarly the notion to simply imagine falling backwards from a standing position came in an insight which no way would I logically before an exercise think yeah im gonna try that...I think it could work well.

So I think there is this constant evolution of methods you adopt with maybe a nudge from the other side.
39  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Meeting strange man everytime I have sleep paraysis/obe on: January 20, 2015, 02:21:39
First house I moved into with some college mates, we had a friendly young lady of a ghost from the 19th century watching over and protecting the house. Coolest place I ever lived just by the ambience she provided.

I'll have to write up that story sometime...

At TMI there is one room which has an entity residing in it. Seems to like some people more than others. I spent 2 weeks in the room on my own but didn't realize at the time. Woke up in the night and something was next to me in bed with its arm over me (like it was spooning me). Turns out it quite liked me (evidently) but it has been reputed to punch some people during exercises.
40  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Meeting strange man everytime I have sleep paraysis/obe on: January 19, 2015, 23:30:38
Of late I've noticed a man who waits in the hall by my bedroom. I'm ashamed to say when I first noticed him fear must have kicked in at the sight of an unknown entity in my house and i shouted. He ran into the toilet to hide from me. I then acknowledged my overreaction and realised he was more scared of me.

The following few times I saw him he was terrified of me and I have been slowly trying to show him I just want to help him. It's slow going. I have his name but he is reticent to give much else up. My intuition tell me he needs retrieving but this isn't a grab and drop in 27 run but rather something that requires a more thoughtful approach.

Parts of my house are over five hundred years old so there's a good chance he was a former resident. A while back I was lying in bed aware of a Victorian maid standing over me saying I needed more blankets as it was cold and nurturing me so there is definitely some history still present in the property.
41  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: astral speeding--where are the breaks? on: January 08, 2015, 14:45:29
As soon as I fall asleep I get A horrible buzzing in my head and I am sucked so fast out of my body that I think I am going to go so far that I wont get back.

Referred to as a cannonball exit Smiley
42  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Anyone been to Focus 27? on: December 14, 2014, 04:45:11
I think perhaps you've read too many stories about what you should experience in these states. Although Bob Monroe went OoB he never did it with hemi-sync so you can't really look at Bobs experiences for comparison (you shouldn't do that with anyone really).

You seem to have got hung up on this notion that to experience something you must have no body awareness. This is not strictly necessary with hemi-sync. Many people have wonderful experiences while the whole time being aware of their bodies.

A while back I wrote a post about a website of a guy who does simple meditation exercises that really help get your mindset correct for consciousness exploring. No body replied to the post so I assume it wasn't to people's taste or they are alll spiritual masters already. I personally think you would benefit a lot from it simply because a lot of what you just wrote resonates with how I was a while back. Somewhere along the line through a combination of reading too many anecdotal accounts and my own failures I got stuck in a cycle of focusing too much on the body because I was trying too hard not to focus on it.

Look for my post called 'My two cents'. I really recommend the exercises the guy called Peter Russell does. Whenever I have dry spells and get frustrated I go back to his exercises because it puts me back in the right mental frame set to do this
43  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Monroe Gateway Experience question on Focus 10 on: December 09, 2014, 12:44:44
I totally get where you're coming from. Just take it with a pinch of salt though. My recollection of that article places emphasis on losing all body sensations in 10. I know a number of TMI facilitators who refer to focus 10 as mind awake/body 'relaxed' now because not everyone needs full loss of bodily sensations to start exploring.

In fact they tell you you can move around in these states because they are not that delicate.
44  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Past Life Experience: 8/12/14 on: December 09, 2014, 02:30:47
I'm always intrigued by crystals and their properties. You seem to resonate particularly with this one with some interesting experiences. Can you tell me more about the crystal? All I know is it comes North Carolina.
45  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Monroe Gateway Experience question on Focus 10 on: December 06, 2014, 18:00:27
Any thought during an exercise like "am I there yet" is only going to work against you. People experience focus 10 in many different ways and you may experience varying degrees of it. You can be in focus 10 while walking around just like you can be in it with no sensation of your physical body.

I would personally forget anything you've ever read on the subject and just trust the hemi-sync and your own experiences. If you keep reading up on how people experience you will only compare and when you don't experience what others do you will get disappointed.

Personally I would say forget everything. Just let go and trust the experience. Only my opinion though.

If I could go back to the start of my spiritual path the one thing I would do differently is not to read anecdotal evidence of people's experiences. Sure it can act as mental saturation and may even bring about a few spontaneous OBEs but it will definitely create expectation in you that you may not meet. This is wholly detrimental to your progress. Am I there yet? Shouldn't I be experiencing this? That person did? Why can't i?

Let go
46  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Strange Night for the whole family .. on: December 05, 2014, 13:24:21
If I can offer another concept for you to consider...

Have you done any Shamanic work? As I was reading your story my first thought was of spiritual emergence. Initially kundalini with the references to spontaneous energy surges but then that normally starts at the root chakra. When you mentioned demons and the horns etc.. I started to think possibly a spiritual emergency of the shamanic variety.

When I was training to be a meditation facilitator I read The concept of spiritual emergency by Christina and Stanislav Grof. I quote..."the core experience of the shamanic journey is a profound encounter with death and the subsequent rebirth. Initiatory dreams and visions include a descent into the underworld under the guidance of demons and ancestral spirits and exposure to unimaginable tortures..."

Not very nice you might think. The article goes on to talk of ascent to the higher regions as the second part if the journey. You go from death to rebirth

But just to be clear - this is ultimately supposed to be a positive experience just like how kundalini rising can be unpleasant initially but ultimately rewarding. Were the songs you heard of a tribal/shamanic nature?

If this resonates with how you perceived your experience I can always forward you the article

Obviously this is just one possibly among many

48  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Anyone been to Focus 27? on: December 03, 2014, 18:40:39
While it's important for people to experience reality personally before forming conclusions... I would just like to say that my entire beef (now) with the Focus models we have is that experience is personal and you simply can't have another person's experience.  This knowledge (which as far as I'm concerned, is FACT) kinda blows a huge hole in any Focus model... or any model that anyone comes up with, including my own.

For myself, the Focus models were a great help in providing me with a "guide"... it's just important to realize that a guide isn't rule, and the guide, in this case, doesn't really exist either.  I've since moved past needing them since they simply don't fit what I have experienced in the non-physical.

The moral of the story here is don't get hung up on labels.  Eventually, you need to progress past using other people's labels... or you will just get yourself stuck.

And you are exactly right. They serve as an anchor point to help you initially to reach certain states. They are the training wheels until you are ready to explore more
49  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Anyone been to Focus 27? on: December 03, 2014, 14:22:11
I can talk of focus 27. I've attended both Lifeline and Exploration 27 courses at TMI.

Some interesting comments in this thread. I talk only from my own experiences..27 seems both objective and subjective in nature as in people tend to experience very similar things with just minor differences (maybe based on their individual beliefs). For example someone may see the library as a huge Roman style building while others perceive it as as a modern all glass affair. For me it's the former.

27 is seen as the rest and recovery area for people (not just humans) after physical incarnation. Soarin makes an interesting comment about the hospital. At X27 you spend a lot of times exploring the healing and regeneration center where you may find people who still cling on to their physical ailments after they pass because it affected them so strongly. That's just one e.g. though. I often to take my pets and family members there who have been ill (those who are still alive, that is.

The park is what is commonly associated with focus 27. Personally, I have never experienced it. I have been to the healing center and the library but for some reason not the park (I put this down to having listened to the Going Home series a lot early in my experiences. In it Bob frontloads you as you get to 27 by telling you what the park looks like. I've never responded well to frontloading).

I think 27 is an important place to become familiar with especially in regard to our own deaths. In the Lifeline program you are encouraged to create you own special place in 27. This is seen as an anchor to help you get there.

Also it serves as a place to bring retrieved souls. I have a number of my former pets at my special place (We had one of cats called Blackie put down over the weekend and prior to it I agreed with one of my other cats, called Kippy, who passed over several years ago who resides in 27 to pick him up and bring him back to 27. On the morning after Blackie passed I was a little depressed to meditate and go look but just thinking about it I got a very clear visual scene appear in which Blackie was sitting next to Kippy staring at me. Interestingly he looked vital and his fur was fresher like a young cat. This gave me peace of mind. I hope to see him soon when I next go up to 27).

However, I think most importantly it is an anchor for when you die so you don;'t get stuck yourself. You can set your intent for your special place so you don't get stuck in 23 or maybe the BST.

Someone asked about where 27 in regard to etheric, mental planes etc.. From my experience it is not as high as the mental planes but just fringing it. If you take the Starlines programs at TMI this deals with focus 34-49 which is more about the mental planes. I've done a few exercises in focus 34 but I don't think I was ready for them yet. All in good time I suppose.
50  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: need serious answer on: December 01, 2014, 15:03:52
I would personally watch this Bill Buhlmans talk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlZNmwCD1pA


For me the content of what you talk about doesn't matter. The fact is it's a belief (and now a fear) not a personal known. Bill says we have to systemically remove all of our beliefs because they are almost all flawed. Even our most fundamental beliefs (that we are physical human beings). You have to go and find out for yourself but not through the filters of your beliefs. You have to purge as many of your beliefs as possible. A belief is nothing but a box that restrains and confines your experience (in the physical and non-physical).

I realise this is quite a task to undertake but I now try and filter everything I take in on a daily basis and take nothing as fact unless I personally experience it without the filters of belief.

One quick anecdote from when I first started out - I remember reading lots of stuff about the dweller on the threshold, the old hag etc.. I embraced these beliefs and predictably when I managed to get OoB I would invariably have an aggressive entity in the room with me. When I read further about beliefs and fears affecting your experiences I never experienced anything like that again.
