1  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Progress on: November 19, 2021, 22:40:42
This morning I did the "moving left" technique, or whatever you'd call it.  I completely left the physical in under 5 minutes.  I thought I was in my room but couldn't really see anything, I may have seen glimpses of my room but it wasn't clear.  I wonder if this was the void, a LD, or what.  I heard loud buzzing in this state, which I assumed was binaural beats from my headphones, but only afterwards did I remember I had no headphones on or anything.  I also heard a very loud voice of a man talking about astral projection, I completely ignored what he was saying as I just found it annoying, lol.

The most annoying thing, though, was that I felt I couldn't do anything from this state.  I tried to move but I couldn't tell if I was going anywhere.  I kept trying to swim with my non-physical arms, but nothing happened.  Moving left more also seemed to not have much effect.  The arms felt very real, and definitely non-physical, so that's something.  Maybe I should've climbed a rope or something.  The experience lasted only a few minutes, but when I came back my sense of time was off.  It felt like I was gone for at least an hour.


My memory's a bit patchy, but what might've triggered this was biting my teeth together in a weird way (not sure if physically or not as I can't replicate the exact teeth-contact sensation).  I let the teeth touch → rolled over (again not sure if physically or not) → felt myself moving left → saw a slight flash and then.. → separation into the buzzing NP environment.





Side note:
I am a bit surprised I achieved this without meditating, as Tom Campbell would have you believe deep meditation / point-consciousness is paramount.  I didn't meditate, I still had physical focus prior to separation, I didn't go through sleep paralysis, I didn't do any relaxation at all, I didn't do any visualisation, yet I still phased into the NP without any effort smiley
I'll add, in previous attempts I'd often get rapid heard beat when I felt "close", yet this time I just felt a little hot, and that's it.

I am glad you asked that question. I don't use elaborate techniques anymore. Nowadays, I ride the directional focus as far it wants to take me. Meaning, that a simple focus on a forward direction or and direction is normally all it takes to end up some where else. It doesn't take long at all either. This the result or should I say, the reward, for the last 10 years of almost daily practice that I did and still do today.

 Constantly using different kinds of focus targets leads to many different experiences. That is why it is good to explore in every way, shape or form that you can!  smiley

I'm wondering now, have you noticed any benefits to doing energy raising (e.g. New Energy Ways)?

LOL. "He", "Lionheart", is me! That was a name I first used years ago here on the Astral Pulse.  wink

I had suspected this but was confused for a while.  Always wondered where he went, as I've been here since 2012.

and it really does work! It teaches you how to "hold" your focus for a extended period of time. Even though you are focused on a "physical bodily" action, it is your "etheric body" that is having all of those sensations. I used what I learned from the Phantom Wiggle and various other proven techniques to create my Doorway thread. I started the Doorway thread with simple focus targets like Geometric shapes and color. But soon I implemented the 6 pt directional focus into it. I still use that today. Like they say, "if it's not broken. don't fix it"!  smiley

With your etheric body so loose, do you even need such elaborate techniques?  I would think a simple falling/rising sensation should be enough, or something like what Frank used to do.

Thank you for the fill in Nameless!  smiley

 I have talked about the Vehram system and how I utilize it in my Doorway thread. You can also find some great info utilizing a six point focus here in this thread.
http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/how_exactly_do_you_perform_the_phantom_wiggle_method-t44583.0.html

 I have searched the internet for any updates or info on the Vehram system and have not found very much. I found more info and conversation about it doing a search on this very Forum here, the Astral Pulse. Use the search engine on the top right hand of the page here using the search title "Vehram system". Do your search from the home page though. Otherwise your search will only give results from the sub-forum you are currently in. I know most people know that. I am not so adept on the computer, so I have to find things out the hard way, but "trial and error". A lot of "error" though, lol!  grin


Ohh I remember this thread, just reread it all.  Damn, I forgot about those Lionheart posts.  He basically says to just spend more time in the NP while awake by creating tug-of-war sensations in all 6 directions from the body.  And that this will make any attempts much more successful.  Can't believe I stopped doing this.  But now I see even less reason to read the entire "Vehram System" book as I feel I now know all there is too it, lol.  Thanks for linking this, I'm now motivated again.


(btw, how I usually search the site is I google:  site:astralpulse.com "vehram" points
More readable than with in-site search, but idk if it gets as many results.)

Hi Kree,

Here on the pulse there are a couple good threads discussing the Vehram System.
Here: http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/the_doorway-t46013.0.html

And here: (there may be more) http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_obe_discussions/vehram_energy_system_offers_validation_for_oobes-t29898.0.html

Also try an internet search. Highlight this -> Vehram System and right click with your mouse and click internet search. Hope this helps.

Lumaza asked to me to give you these links. He's a little indisposed right now but will be back when he can. I know he would love to discuss this with you.

Good to hear.
I've looked online but could find little.
6  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Can someone explain Vehram to me? on: October 23, 2021, 21:57:15
I had the pdf a year ago but lost it. I've been interested in the rope technique but the Vehram system seems to be a more advanced version of the same "tug to get out" concept. I wouldn't be surprised if the underlying mechanism behind the techniques is the exact same.

I've read the "Vehram is brilliant" thread but it wasn't very helpful. iirc there are 6 points— I'm assuming for every direction you can move in—and for an OBE you need to pull on at least one of them.

What else is there to this? Can this be used on its own to "phase" from an awake state, or is it solely an "exit method" requiring trance/body-loosening/hypnagogia?
7  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Sitting vs lying on: October 09, 2021, 02:12:21
I'm considering learning to sleep while sitting. Sitting seems to be the best position for meditation, but OBEs need complete relaxation, which is harder to achieve when sitting.  If I get used to sleeping sitting, maybe I'll have the perfect OBE position.

Does anyone do this or have any thoughts?

So..

Step 1: Do the mental rundown technique.



That's it?
9  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: A New Perspective on: July 06, 2021, 09:49:55
As the topic states, this is a "New" perspective. We all know that there are endless probabilities and possibilities in the multiverse. Our line of reality also has endless probabilities in which every possible event is a reality. That equation automatically makes everything a reality that exists in some form in the multiverse. For this guy, this is HIS reality, and on a personal level and by believing in such he will experience like life events in his own life. His dreams and NP/afterlife experiences may also be influenced by this belief.
I think that we see reality in very unique personal ways. What is the mass truth through the eyes of the mass consciousness now in this Earth and this probable reality, I can not say. I see it through my own eyes, and if my beliefs tend to be more positive and optimistic, this is how I will perceive the world, no matter what the masses see or what each individual person sees. I will see in each person the light and not the darkness, and so I will attract good people in my life. Those who fear and tend not to trust, will attract like events and people. AS much as we want to know the truth from a larger perspective, we must understand that reality is formed by all of us on individual and mass level. Again, everything and anything exists in this multiverse, no question. The question is, what do we want to focus on at this time. Because everything does exist, the good, the bad and the ugly. We can start looking for the bad and the ugly in order to fight and save the world. And we do to some extend on a subconscious and conscious level, but being consumed within this war, will never let us see the good side. These realities can NEVER have the balance we always search for. Because this is the design done on purpose, done by the very inhabitants of these realities, and these who want to focus on the war have wanted to be in one, so let them fight and learn. Those who want to live in bliss and love even here, only if they focus, will find predominantly love and bliss.

We KNOW the system, but we can lift ourselves ABOVE the system. Do you know what I mean.

This is the kind of content I expect from the forum, lol Smiley
Nicely put (though paragraphs would be nice).

Your point on infinite valid possibilities is an important one, but I was more referring to "understanding" reality, rather than just having a feel for its nature.  E.g. Hitler was just as good as [insert random saint here], he was God/Love/Consciousness just the same as anyone else, but at the same time we also know he was worse.  Sure, it's all a matter of perspective, but some perspectives are superior to others (in a subjectively objective way).

It's important not to let abstract spiritual ideas confuse our understanding like this, imo.  Some people will not see the nuances and believe you're telling them Hitler was a saint, or that AI, the internet, technology, 5G towers, etc. are the work of Lucifer, lol.  Yes, all views are valid, but there's more to it than that.

I was just listening to a guy, Tim Alberino, on youtube. Yes he has a book and yes there is a plug for the book in the vid. Just skip past and listen.

He makes sense to me and very well may be cracking the code, so to speak.

Lucifer’s desire to destroy humanity, men and women made in the image of God, is hard for us to fathom. But throughout history, he’s tried to destroy everything God called good. Tim Alberino’s research on the genetic hybrids of Genesis 6 led directly to the catastrophic flood of Noah and the near destruction of the entire human race. His hatred of mankind continues to this day through transhumanism, artificial intelligence, and the destruction of man’s DNA.

Nope.  Zero chance this guy has any valuable information to offer.  I'd put this below even F tier.
Looking like Tom Campbell, alone, just isn't enough to appear credible these days..


The guy doesn't even know what he's talking about.  Not only is he a belief-trapped stage Blue, he's also taking the bible literally.

He even demonizes transhumanism & AI..  WHAT?!

Can't believe I'm seeing this type of content on this forum.
11  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / The Gateway Experience vs Binaural Beats? on: June 04, 2021, 22:34:41
I've had TGE for some years now, but have only really tried the F10 track.  Gave up on it after hearing "you are now in focus 10" a hundred times.

The weird thing about TGE is, iirc, many of the tracks don't even go into theta.  So would seem less effective than just a theta BB track.  And I also hear that most of the tracks don't even provide a technique.  So I'm wondering what value is there to these tracks, for someone who just wants to phase?

I've also got a laxman light and sound machine, but can't really tell if it's any better than just a BB track.
12  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: What makes you believe in AP/OBEs? on: September 25, 2020, 04:07:44
Was gonna basically say what GrumpyRab did.  The argument I always make to materialists is:
Your 5 senses can ONLY ever be experienced by your brain.  Even if you were looking at and feeling an object that's in the physical, you'd still only be experiencing what your brain tells you.  You can NEVER experience the physical no matter what.  You can only experience your brain.  How much can you trust the brain? Well, how hard is it to fool? Take some acid, and the brain tells you different things about your reality.  Cure someone's depression, and they'll describe reality in a very different way too. 

That much is basic logic that every materialist should already understand. 

Now, since you are "in the brain", and can't ever be in the physical, would the physical exist? Would you ever be able to tell? No.  You'd have to disconnect from all your brain's signals to do that, and at that point you're definitely not in a materialist's idea of a physical.  So, even if the physical existed, throughout all of human history no person would've ever experienced it.  It's inaccessible, and therefore has no purpose and couldn't exist.

(iirc, accord to Elon Musk, Neuralink (with basic functionality) is <5 years away.  When every sense can be replaced artificially, maybe then people will start to realize this.)

Understanding reality's non-physical nature, the very question of "but how do you know OBEs aren't just hallucinations of the brain?" seems absurd and childish.  If this is still not making sense, just think about how a game works.  Does the game world actually need to exist, in and of itself? Of course not.



I didn't really need to write all that to answer your question, but it might clear up others you're likely to have.  To more directly answer your question, there IS, what I consider "definitive proof".  From the man, himself:

13  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Re: Slicing Brain in Half with Energy? on: December 02, 2019, 19:52:37
Sometimes the energy feels really mild.
When that happens to me, I just do NEW, A few minutes of breathing in energy with hands and feet makes me really feel it. I can then just will the energy up. The important thing with feeling the flow for me is to feel the body as stationary, and letting the energy go up like steam or, alternatively, like a fast flow, making sure to feel it being sucked up by the base and moving through the inside of the abdomen, chest, neck and head and stimulated the brain differently.
Oh and stimulate the hands and feet using mental tactile imaging first, makes a huge difference. Also, tai chi movements and just focusing on feeling with the hands. Lastly, hyperventilation breathing, really makes them tingle.
the energy seems to be higher with a approaching full moon.
Totally agree on the weather. That's interesting to me Lumaza regarding the full moon. I had always thought I would feel that way and I think sometimes I do but what seems to affect me most is damp weather. And when the barometric pressure drops there's always something to tap into. Can you tell a difference in the energy with the full moon, like does the energy feel lighter/heavier?
Since the body is mostly water, the moon should have some noticeable effect. Haven't paid attention this is myself yet.

Nameless have you ever attempted Vessen Hopkin's "Vehram technique"? It is really energy oriented. In that thread Vessen describes what is actually occurring using his teachings and knowledge of Physics. It gets pretty deep in Scientific lingo/terminology as well. Szaxx had some good questions for him. It seemed his field of study was right up Szaxx's alley as well.
http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_out_of_body_experiences/the_vehram_system_is_truly_brilliant-t29333.0.html
I found this basic intro to his Vehram Array while doing a google search. It looks like it's a Ad. At least that's the way it is set up. But he isn't selling anything there. It's more explanatory than anything.
https://www.learning-mind.com/quantum-physics-consciousness/
I just had a look at this book. One line says "You must be in the hypnagogic state to access the Vehram System". What a turn-off lol. It's basically a WBTB technique that requires you to focus on the exhales and enter SP before you even do the technique. The way I see it, might as well just do the rope technique or roll out if already in SP, would save time not having to read an entire book..

Anyway, I'll mention that I've started noticing more interesting things. Whenever I go to sleep, eyes open or closed, I see a blue cloud floating around, it usually turns into a flying bat or a dragon. Also see a very brief orange flash. Very random. The strangest thing, however, is that yesterday I could feel cool air coming from the groin, I kept checking it and it felt real, cool air coming out of nowhere. Then I noticed what felt like my hair being stroked (which I'm kind of used to by now since starting every work) and I could feel the cool air coming out of there too!

It kind of feels like the only obstacle to phasing is neck / lower head tension. Right now doing physical neck relaxation techniques, and trying to find a good position to put my neck in.
14  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Slicing Brain in Half with Energy? on: November 28, 2019, 19:11:46
So I've been experimenting with ways of flowing energy. Tying the breath with energy (as with 'NEW') felt limiting, so I've been flowing it up or down through the major chakras, with or without a loop. These all feel fine – except for some lingering feet/head pulling sensations – it's when I flow two streams of energy in opposite directions when something weird happens. The first time I tried it, I had a stream going down the back of my body and another one up the front, I then focused them on the brain only. Within seconds of intensifying this, I saw a sudden bright flash in my closed eyes; my body felt very grounded and tingly, and nothing came of it. The same day I did it again and saw another bright flash of light. I'm assuming this is some kind of symptom of entering a mild trance, but it's interesting as I wasn't even that relaxed and could bring it on extremely fast. It's the same effect I get from doing the Merkaba technique. I'll also mention that slicing the brain either front/back or left/right causes a unique, uncomfortable feeling, like the brain is strained or something. Thoughts?
15  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Biphasic and polyphasic sleep patterns on: June 01, 2019, 01:39:37
I used to do it. Really great for productivity, mood and energy. Also sleep inertia is less of a problem. For it to be worth it though you need to be able to fall asleep fast.
16  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: What do you focus on with the noticing technique? on: December 10, 2018, 04:43:54
So how far are you getting? What is it you "expect" to see? What problems are you still having. I am perplexed here. You say you have tried everything  that we all propose to you, yet you don't tell us what the results were. Once again, I have to think that the problem isn't with the method or the techniques. It seems the problem is with your ability to actually release your control. You do it every night while you go to sleep. You just need to learn how to stay consciously aware to obtain that conscious shift.

 That "intent" IS your technique.

You're right, my main issue is most likely the inability to release control, yes, I do it every night when I go to sleep but I have difficulty with even that, I usually fall asleep after I get tired from trying dozens of sleeping positions, I usually end up sleeping on my front probably due to it being easier to breathe, it might make sense to use this position for phasing but I've always found it harder for some reason and so have most other people I've read about. Sitting might be another option. On my front I kind of automatically ping pmr with my attention occasionally even if it is just by thinking and feeling like I'm thinking in my physical body's head. In most other positions I get distracted by the discomfort.

I never really thought about intent being the technique, I always assumed just getting absorbed into any technique will at some point result in that becoming the prominent reality. It does make sense that aligning the intent with the technique will have better results.

"I begin to focus on simple candle flame. I can see it, now it fades, so I bring it back. I can see it again and it fades. The more I bring it back, the stronger the visual is. Now that flame is beginning to morph into a Fireplace setting. I am not consciously directing this. I am just "passively observing" it and "allowing" it the freedom to go in whatever direction it wants. At that point, I have absolutely 0 focus on my "physical body". My entire focus is on whatever I am experiencing there. I have already shifted."

So just imagining a flame and if it disappears bringing it back, not doing anything else? That's kind of a different approach to something like the doorway technique which requires a bit of thought. Might have to try this.

You're falling into the trap of "real vs illusion"... that kind of thinking is going to set you back many years.
Suffice to say through using the technique you're already using, you have direct access to the whole of consciousness. 

WHAT you experience is objective.  The only thing created "by your mind" is HOW you experience it. 

I know that it's ok to start off with an illusion and that there is value in illusion type experiences, but what I meant was that when I make an attempt I don't get to the stage where that place feels as real as here, I can see things if I make a conscious effort but I can't just turn my NP head and see what's there, I can only kind of RV whatever I want to see, and I'm the one providing the data. I can spend an hour in a visualization but it still feels only slightly more intense than what I'd get if I'd visualize right now with my eyes open.
17  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: What do you focus on with the noticing technique? on: December 06, 2018, 22:13:44
There are several things you can do.

You can pay more attention to the music, forget the visuals. Let it take you where it will.

You can focus on the visuals. Allow the visuals to flow freely till you find something to latch onto then follow it.

Also you can just let that conversation flow. You may find yourself having a very interesting conversation with 'other'.

Focusing on music would be a really easy technique, though that and the random visual technique seem like advanced techniques as they seem to require extreme alertness when done at night and a lot of curiosity when done during the day.

You're actually doing just fine.  The daydreaming is what you want.  That's the beginning.
It's not really "daydreaming"... it's hypnogogic imagery.  Each time you delve into the imagery increases the chances of you staying there.

That *IS* phasing.

In order to get "deeper", each time you "day dream" you need to move your focus further and further from this physical reality.  Remove all aspects of what binds you here (your physical senses).  Smiley
Haha!  You don't even realize what you're doing.  Smiley
That's a mental rundown... the rundown doesn't have to be visual, it can be a simple conversation. 
Have you ever read anything from Bruce Moen?  He's now passed on permanently to the non-physical (just last year), but that is EXACTLY how he projected.  He had conversations with "people" in his head.  He would start off making up the entire conversation himself, then eventually, he would begin to notice that the conversations were taking on a life of their own.  It *IS*, in its very essence, a mental rundown.  At the point when the conversation took on a life of its own, he just went with it... he allowed it to take him where ever it wanted to take him.

The conversation rundown sounds interesting, I tried it one night but it made my mind so overly active that I had serious issue falling asleep afterward, maybe if i'm deep enough I can see it working but the intellectual thought required has so far only made it harder to focus on the NP, thinking just feels like a physical thing to me, makes me feel here, maybe getting used to thinking with eyes closed will help with that. I've also started watching Bruce Moen's talks, will see if he has anything educational to say.

I guess that is technically phasing, but that kind of phasing is not the goal, I want to be able to visit places other than the ones created by my mind.

Your initial post here is basically almost everything that I experienced when I was "newer" here as well.

 I first had the "eye strains". Then it was the eyes automatically "feeling" like they were opening. To fix the eye opening problem, I used a blindfold. The one I use now is great. I sue it when I sleep at night too. I fixed the straining eye problem, but learning how to "passively observe" things.

 I flitted around in visuals as well. I was mentally jumping around constantly, that is, until I learned the importance of "passively observing" and allowing things to manifest before me. I could lock onto a visual and soon join the scenario or I could just wait until a full in my face scenario was already in paly. To jump start that process, I used a mental focus on what I consider my "Happy Place". Mine is a tropical Island paradise with large beaches and all kinds of interesting things to explore. But yes, sometimes it would take hours and could be quite boring. That's when I learned how to utilize a active mind while the natural process of shifting occurred. You can find out more about that in this Sticky here:
 http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/the_doorway-t46013.0.html
 The techniques in that thread have really evolved. I recently have learned the importance of "defocusing" immediately after I close my eyes. This makes the shift almost instantaneous. This revelation came to me after years of daily practice.

I forgot about my eye problem, I think I fixed it by just not even trying to keep them closed, if they're opening I don't pay attention.
I guess a location to focus on would help with consistency of the visuals and staying alert but in the past it's been just so mentally straining and my mind would still want to do something more interesting, maybe if I make it a really happy place, the desire to stay in the visuals would be there.
I've tried the doorway technique many times as it makes so much sense, I should probably keep trying it but I think I'll focus on some of the others suggested here for now.
It's interesting what you say about defocusing, it's what I usually do as it's easier than focusing, I can do it immediately even with eyes open.

The advice given so far is very possibly relevant to what is obstructing you. There may be another aspect to the situation, and this reflects on the subtlety and quality of our individual experiences.

You may need to define your ‘Intent’ more clearly. What exactly do you want to do once you are out?

You are getting visuals and audios and mental wandering; you may actually be on the edge of, or in the black 3D Void...and it sounds like you are close to a projection/phasing...kind of hovering at the edge...so what is left as a requirement? That might possibly be the quality of Intent.

Before you begin each experiment, do you have a destination in mind? A person, place or thing? An idea of some sort, a process you wish to understand? A person you wish to visit? A place you wish to travel to? A lesson or event you wish to experience? To wander your bedroom, your apartment, your house or the local neighborhood? To go flying or to travel underwater or to fly to the stars? To meet a Guide or have greater contact with your higher self? To learn the next best lesson available to yourself?

For many of us (myself included), this progression of each OBE experience strongly requires an ‘Intent’, whatever form that may take; it needs some form of definition and declaration/expression. Wanting to have a fun adventure, just wanting to freely explore...these are all valid...just be mature about your choices, be honest and express your desire...your Intent...and what you get will reflect the innermost you.

So, explore that idea and find a way to incorporate it into your practice. It can only help and it may give you access to far greater insights that will be of benefit as you progress.

Before you start the journey, you must have in mind a destination. You have to have a valid reason for going there.

For now I just want to develop the ability, so I sometimes intend to be above my building, though I do forget about that intent when I start on some technique.
I could intend to go to the place I'm visualizing, though the reason would be just for practice.
18  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / What do you focus on with the noticing technique? on: December 02, 2018, 01:04:05
I have some issues with phasing.
I can either, focus my eyes on the blackness or defocus and concentrate on my mind's eye's visuals.

Focusing on the blackness almost strains my eyes but lets me see some detailed visuals and helps stay alert. Eventually, I get tired and defocus, this causes me to daydream. Sure, daydreaming is also a phasing technique, but I can never go deep enough no matter what, also, the visuals keep randomly changing and I'm also hearing music nonstop so I'm not very immersed in anything. Every single time what happens is I spend an hour on the technique, get vivid visuals, get bored and start having a conversation with myself in my mind to stimulate myself.

I'm not really sure what to do to make the NP the most interesting place for my attention to go to.

I have found that you don't need a "quiet mind" at all to project. My techniques rely on utilizing that monkey mind to your advantage. So much so that I want you to lose yourself in thought!

That sure sounds too easy to work, I mean I'm always lost in thought, while meditating I forget I'm meditating and end up thinking about random stuff, I don't see how these thoughts could end in a projection. For example I may be thinking about posting a reply to you, how could I get so deep into my reply formulation that I project?!

Due to being very unfocused and bad at meditation I have lots of random ideas and thoughts which is often beneficial for me. Being good at meditation would likely result in having a quieter mind with fewer thoughts. Some people say it's good some say it's bad for creativity.
Anyone notice any difference since improving at meditation?

Might try this as I just found it for free.  Though I don't see how it could help with conscious projection. The only times I've had success were when I was obsessed with ap and it staying in my subconsciousness made LDs possible so this should work like that.

I'd imagine it would help for the same reasons that not eating sugar would help. Here's an explanation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e082jsIe0Ak

Ah, so your mind gets bored easy. Then the traditional meditation is not suitable for you. In that case imagine that you are hovering above your body for a while and then go up through the roof and imagine flying above your neighborhood. Since you are familiar with your neighborhood, try to visualize it and observe it. Feel the motion of flying. This by itself is an AP technique. When done for 20 minutes while falling asleep before bed and then let yourself fall asleep as you are experiencing the motion and visualization. In three, four weeks of doing that every night, you will eventually start getting awaken by vibrations in the middle of your sleep phase, you will become very aware, only your body will be fully asleep, so you can freely get out and explore the non-physical.


I am not good at prolonged meditation because my mind gets bored as well and if I am too awake I can never project fully, and so do many people. So many people coming to this forum say the same thing over and over. Why am I meditation for hours and for months and I cant AP. Well, because there are only a hand full of individuals who can fully AP out of meditative state. The more achievable thing is through actual AP technique, one of them explained above. But it must be done WHILE you are falling asleep and hold the visualization and motion going for at least 20 minutes. So, maybe you can try AP technique instead of traditional meditation.

So I guess your answer to my title question is phasing. I really like the sound of this technique as it should keep my mind engaged and maybe not strain it too much as I'm visualizing where I've already been unlike most visualization methods. Will try it just as you described. Thanks.

As someone who gets bored easily, have you been able to learn to phase whenever you want despite not being good to meditate deeply?

If you get relaxed enough, your breathing will slow down significantly to a point where you wont notice it any more. Don't focus on physical body activities. Imagine lifting up a few inches above your body being in the nonphysical. Imagine that you are just consciousness, a ball of energy submerged into the deep levels of higher vibratory levels. I would focus on a specific question that you may be searching for an answer. Then you may experience flickers, noises, visions that are related to your question. I think this is a good start.

But what can my mind grab onto to stay there? I mean, if I'm watching a movie, the story, visuals, script keep my mind engaged and therefore focused. If I'm imagining I'm above my head, my mind will soon look for a way to stimulate itself, with this technique, what is there to that would make my mind want to stay there?

I found this great statement on meditation just now and wanted to share it here:

So it's possible to be in a meditative state while doing anything, but can the intellect be active while trying to phase? Just had this thought today, I think this may be the biggest problem for me. I can be focusing on the breath but I feel like I do this from an intellectual level and the focus is weak because of this. Is the goal of meditation to be able to switch off the intellect? If that's the case would focusing on emotion or something 'being level' be more effective?
