What?

"So, this is what the majority think"

Please allow me... I disagree.

The largest Christian Denomination in the World, by far, is Roman Catholic -- and if you said something like that among them they would NOT "have called a pastor to expel satan out of me"... not at all.

Then there are the Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Anglican, ... etc. -- None of which would respond in that manner.

What you are describing is more typical of a Southern Baptist type church and the many spinoffs of that genre. They are a definite MINORITY. We are talking about 1.7 billion or more orthodox Christians versus a few hundred million of the free wheeling bible thumpin' variety.



2 Largest [Christian] denominational families and denominations

    2.1 Catholicism - 1.2 billion
    2.2 Protestantism - 800 million
    2.3 Eastern Orthodoxy - 225300 million
    2.4 Oriental Orthodoxy - 86 million
    2.5 Anglicanism - 85 million
    2.6 Restorationism and Nontrinitarianism - 4248 million
    2.7 Church of the East - 0.6 million


I would say that about half the Protestant Christians would NOT react the way you described. Not the Methodists, not the Lutherans, and certainly not the Episcopal. My Lutheran Grandmother was where we kids got our first Ouija board to play with.


1. Southern Baptist Convention: 16.2 million members
2. The United Methodist Church: 7.8 million members
3. The Church of God in Christ: 5.5 million members
4. National Baptist Convention: 5.0 million members
5. Evangelical Lutheran Church, U.S.A.: 4.5 million members
6. National Baptist Convention of America: 3.5 million members
7. Assemblies of God: 2.9 million members
8. Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.): 2.8 million members
9. African Methodist Episcopal Church: 2.5 million members
10. National Missionary Baptist Convention of America: 2.5 million members
11. The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS): 2.3 million members
12. The Episcopal Church: 2.0 million members
13. Churches of Christ: 1.6 million members
14. Pentecostal Assemblies of the World: 1.5 million members
15. The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church: 1.4 million members

I'm talking about the typical American christian church goers. I dont know under which category they fall but they are millions. Bottom line, religion is limiting in many ways and I see it all around me.

Well, I have a lot of Christian friends, I have attended bible studies and church services so what they believe is that you can get to heaven ONLY through Jesus. They dont believe there are ghosts. They believe any supernatural stuff are from the devil. During one bible study a few years ago one of the ladies was talking and she said something about the new age , AP and all that garbage that young people believe in and how the Christianity needs to fight these evil teachings and everyone agreed. I did not say anything, because if I told them that I could AP and have been to heaven, they would have called a pastor to expel satan out of me LOL. So, this is what the majority think. There are of course more open minded individuals among all religions, scientists, atheists, etc who are interested in all that and talk about it. But the majority of them dont.

I started performing mass healing meditation when I was a child, without even knowing that this was called meditation. It started when I heard about a little boy in England terminally ill, that he wanted to receive many post cards and get a Guinness record before he dies. I remember thinking how cruel this life is and how unfair it was that he got sick. Every night before bed I would close my eyes and mentally send him energy attacking his brain tumor. I don't know if I helped in any way. I did not read anything on the news. Back then we only relied on newspapers of course. It was hard to track any new information.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Shergold

OMG, guys, look what I found. The boy is alive. I never looked for information about him, because my healing attempts happened 3 decades ago and were forgotten. Now that it was brought back with this topic, I decided to search. I only remembered his first name Craig. He actually received 350 million post cards and entered the Guinness record. One of these cards is mine Smiley. His tumor did not disappear by a supernatural force like I was trying, but rather the collective consciousness of these millions of people wishing him to get well created the circumstances for a wealthy person to hear about him, take him to the states and have an operation performed, which was successful. Either way, I am so emotional right now and so happy, because when I was 9 or 10, I had a connection with this boy by trying to help him. There is even a movie based on his story and I am going to watch it.

I don't know the method behind this but I'm free.  smiley How will I know?
[/quote]

Thanks for your willingness to help, Nameless! Smiley You don't have to do anything, just be open in general to spread positive energy to the world.  I am just experimenting with meditation sessions where I direct positive energy on a global level. I will try to connect with people I know want to help on a higher level and connect all our energies for more strength. You may not feel anything that depends on your sensitivity. You may experience dreams with symbols according on how your subconsciousness may interpret your involvement. If I have an AP, I will try to do this during, because then I will have visuals and everything, so it will be more interesting.
131  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Validation: The Sweetest Thing on: August 11, 2016, 04:05:10
Lately I and some other members I have talked to on this and other Forums have been having very disturbing and challenging Dream scenarios. The problem is that theme seems to linger into the following day and is responsible for your current mood then as well. A positive adventure, like a Retrieval or Heroic scenario can create a day bliss upon awakening. A negative adventure, a day of depression.

 It's almost like the "collective conscious" is in a state of disarray at the moment.  undecided This has been occurring for over a month now and some I speak to are even saying that they feel like they have been totally blocked from using any form by of "shifting in consciousness" method period. Something is amiss.  huh

Thanks for this reminder, Lumaza. I have been having nightmares for a while. which I couldn't explain until you mentioned that. Now I know I am not the only one and my nightmares are not about my personal life. I was beginning to wonder what is it that I need to learn because these dreams are very disturbing. My APs are quite the opposite, when I have awareness. I'll give you two examples of my dreams. They actually started after I did one very deep session about trying to remove negative energy from our world. The next night I was dreaming that I saw a huge wave of water very high, maybe a sky scraper high coming from the distance. Everyone started running and my and a bunch of people went inside a house waiting scared for the wave to hit at any time. I did not have awareness, but I remember closing my eyes and saying to myself "it will be over in a few minutes. I will die and pass into the other world".  I was trying not be scared, but the fear of drowning was pretty big. The wave came and knocked the walls of the house, but we survived. Then we saw another huge wave coming again. This repeated several times.
The other dream was when a huge snake, and I mean huge, like a train, manifested and I had to fight it. So, my conclusion is that the magnitude and the size of these obstacles represent my battle with the global world problems, not my personal. They are too big for me to fight on my own. I need to perhabs mentally connect with other people and gather all our energies together. I will be summoning all of you here during my sessions. Let me know if you get any abnormal dreams as a result. Don't worry, I am not an energy vampire LOL.
132  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Validation: The Sweetest Thing on: August 08, 2016, 04:22:44
Hi All,
I know since I've been here I have so far not really talked much about my own experiences in any depth. I think it's time I did because like the title says, validation is a sweet thing.

A few years back I was shown how to help people by infusing them with soothing energy and shielding them from whatever stressful thing was creating problems. (Please forgive my terminology if I get any of it wrong.) Since then I have practiced and have had some hits that I could validate. Funny how sometimes these lessons can come from the 'other side' as well as 'this' side.

The last few nights I have been using this energy and shield to improve the mood in my own home. Life has been pretty darn stressful lately. Today, out of the blue, my husband says he had a dream last night. He is one of those people that has maybe partially remembered one or two dreams from his entire life. He says he never even dreamed as a kid. He and I are polar opposites in that regard. But last night he dreamed I was curled up to him providing him soothing comfort. (Mind you this was out there on the mental plane somewhere, not in physical reality). He said it was the most peaceful thing and he slept like a baby. My heart is very happy right now. My kids have not said anything but I've been working on them as well and I can see their moods lightening.

In truth my husbands attitude/mood has been much improved the last 3 days. But the dream he had was my validation as he knows absolutely nothing about what I've been doing, this forum or, well, any of this.

I'm posting this to show others that there truly is no limit to what you are capable of if you are willing to help others. The bigger lesson here is that you do not have to go searching far and wide for those you can help. Those close to home need us just as much. It's like feeding starving kids in far away lands while a neighborhood child goes hungry.

Hugs All and thanks for sharing your world.




Great job, Nameless! I started performing mass healing meditation when I was a child, without even knowing that this was called meditation. It started when I heard about a little boy in England terminally ill, that he wanted to receive many post cards and get a Guinness record before he dies. I remember thinking how cruel this life is and how unfair it was that he got sick. Every night before bed I would close my eyes and mentally send him energy attacking his brain tumor. I don't know if I helped in any way. I did not read anything on the news. Back then we only relied on newspapers of course. It was hard to track any new information. For a long time I would also focus on entire hospitals to do mass healing. I was hoping to hear from the news that a miracle happened in such and such hospital and all patients got healed. I never did, but I hope at least they detected some comfort from me. To this day I still send blast energy waves around the world to comfort those who suffer. My empathy is very strong and many times I would just cry for others pain. For my own family, I receive validations every time things get out of balance. Thankfully, things have been going extremely well for me and my family. Many big achievements for all of us, which makes me happy. But I do focus on the world as a whole, because I would like to see it start improving soon, althought times are difficult and it seems like we are going downhill. I hope that people like us with collective energy will turn things around and influence somehow the way the global energy flows at the moment.

Music in movies is made just for this this purpose. Every musical score in a movie is used to create "emotion".
 
 Here is a composer that is a "Master" at his craft. Each song creates not only a memory, but also the emotion you felt in the movie when you heard it. It is also a great video to just lie back and "notice" to.
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYa3DLEKS6E

I listen to soundtracks everyday while I work. Such a great escape. They really do create powerful emotions and make your day exciting. I love the ones from the epic movies. Of course The Lord of the Rings is my all time favorite.

RM, please.....Total bovine excrement.............there is no stuck souls, and I know for fact lies, and more lies, and fakers wanting to belong. There is no places, no people there, anyone says they helped people get to other side are full of chit. Maybe a dream or something, cause I been to RM and there is nothing there, but people to scam you out your money............Sorry, you may be able to obe from teachings, but everything else is total BS, and I will confront anyone that claims different.

This guy really pisses me off, he may of had an OBE, but the rest is bull, or dream worlds created. For one no one talks about the most obvious feature when you OBE and can see the "real" world, or how they just somehow never had to learn how to move around, never scared of leaving body and can never actually help you, besides say goto RM place, hoping it would work for you, plus your thousands of dollars -_-  It just not like something you can just do automatically, because you read a book.

At best RM created a "world" that more and more people believe in, but I can assure you it is not a reality. It like going to heaven if you a Christian, and then later you find out it BS, cause it was all created by the human minds that believe in it. Human minds can create "levels" this guy created a fantasy and people followed, making it "real" on some level. If that, more probably people read that crap making your "dreams" make that real, not OBE.....and I will challenge anyone to a meeting place. Been to CP, NY and no-one nothing, and to his institute.....smh


Well, I hope that if one day you need help (here or there, no difference) that someone will be kind enough to help you, like most of us here provide help for others. Consciousness on all levels interact all the time.
135  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Need your help on: July 25, 2016, 01:40:31
I think the concept of free will needs to be looked at from a higher perspective. I tend to believe that our spirits create certain set of circumstances and events through which the character they wish to experience need to go through during its life span in certain realities. By creating obstacles, the free will of the personality may be limited. For example, there was a study done on prisoners. Their brains were scanned and examined and the scientists had found that most of them has much smaller amygdala, which is linked to the feeling of empathy and decision making. So, being born with underdeveloped brain, will cause certain behavior, which is linked to this disability. Does that mean the spirit itself thinks this way. I don't think so, but it needed to experience these limitations and create a character that will behave this way. Everything is for the purpose of experiencing different scenarios and learning from the combination of all possibilities. So, bottom line, I think free will exists in a higher level, but it is limited within the different personalities.
136  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: What Are Dreams? on: July 18, 2016, 08:15:22
Dreams take place in the non-physical reality, in the area of your immediate thought forms (including beliefs, current state of mind, emotions, something you have experienced during the day, etc)
There is raw energy everywhere, whether we can see it (observe) here in the physical or not. Remember that all dimensions are interconnected, as you as a spirit exist simultaneously in many places as different characters. As physical characters we are limited to perceive all that, however connections with higher selves, other characters are still in effect. One character can draw knowledge from another and so on. Also, all spirits can interact with one another here in this level or simultaneously in other. All the above contributes to what we dream about. Sometimes it can be a test, sometimes it can be an interaction with another spirit, sometimes it can be simply a manifestation of your thoughts according to your daily activities. Remember that any thought shapes a form at this very moment just outside of our physical perception, however, it becomes a part of your visible or invisible reality. And as soon as your physical senses are surpressed (during sleep), you are automatically tuned into your immediate non-physical surroundings which you create with every single thought, emotion and belief all the time.
During dreams you don't have much awareness to a point where you can take control, that's why often scenarious in dreams take shapes in forms of symbols, because this is how your mind interprets certain things. Now, when you bring your awareness with you when you tune in, then you can take control and explore farther from your immediate subconscious thoughts area.

139  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Will my situation change? on: July 13, 2016, 22:53:42
First, let me clear up something about projections. When you re-focus, you will be able to go as far as your thoughts, beliefs and current state of mind stretches. And I am not talking about distance as we perceive it here. I am talking about environment, circumstances and experiences according to your own thoughts and emotions. Even if you receive answers, you still need to act upon here in order to manifest. In the physical you can think as hard as you want to, but if you don't take actions, nothing will change. We are here with limitations for a reason, in order to make realizations for ourselves.

Who says there is only heaven and hell? AP experiences prove that this is not the case. The journey in any realities continues, and it is always ever-changing, strongly influenced by your learning progress, beliefs and expectations. There is no one set destination after this life here ends. Religious beliefs are very limited and in many cases false.

Lucid Dream - A dream in which we realise we are dreaming but still follow the scenario


Just to clarify, you dont have to follow the scenario. I never do. The moment I realize I am dreaming, I take full control. That's why it's very important to train ourselves to gain awareness and take control when we get the opportunity. That's why I do not distinguish LDs from APs.
Now regular dreams, I do, although I know they take place in the non-physical, in most cases they are a combination between thoughts from the previous day, fears, beliefs, etc. My dreams dont make sense most of the time and I do not pay attention to them. experiences with awareness though are very different to me. That's why I do distinguish dreams from APs. That's why we have this forum here, to teach how to gain awareness. Otherwise there will be no need of any teachings because everyone dreams.

So, luffy, you can answer your own question, just by knowing did you have awareness or not. If you did, then this was AP/LD, if not then this was a dream. Again, all three taking place in the non-physical. Sometimes dreams give us clues though, so do not underestimate them.

Arent these called Lucid Dreams?
Or are they AP's?

There is no difference between LD and AP. In my case this did not start from a dream. It started with vibrational full conscious refocus.
146  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Astral Projecting inside a book/story on: May 15, 2016, 04:41:12
Yes, Narnia and Harry Potter. Absolutely amazing experiences. I interacted with the characters and I felt like a part of these worlds. Here is an old post from me on the forum.

''The first time I projected there was way before I read the Deathly Hallows part I, or before I had seen the movie. I had no idea the story would take such a dark turn. And usually we experience the astral according to our expectations, however, I did not intend to project there at all, I was just taken, and secondly, I found myself in a forest area with Harry and Hermione, I remember seeing a tent and we were planning on how to find something. There was heaviness in the air, a really dark feeling,  but at the same time I was sooooo thrilled to had ended up there, because I was totally aware that my physical body is asleep, and at the same time I had teleported into this fictional world. I felt a part of it and despite the darkness of that particular scene, I felt in a mids of a great adventure. The feeling was unbelievable. Then after a while when the movie came  -Deathly Hallows part 1 (I read the book after I saw the movie) and I saw them in the forest with the tent trying to figure out how to find the horcruxes, I was like OMG, what the hell LOL. I think my AP took place even before the author had written that part of the book."
147  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Are there spirit guides on the astral plane? on: May 14, 2016, 08:27:03
Here is an old post of mine on this forum from May 17th 2014. I was replying to someone, but I thought it is relevant to your question.

"Through retrievals, I myself have assisted and helped many spirits. So, in these cases I was I and they were themselves. I was not a temporary part of their creation. In many cases they did not even ask for help. I was taken by some unknown forces during APs and dropped in a situation where another entity was experiencing a difficult situation. Sometimes they could see me, other times I realized that they had no idea anyone was there at all. So, yes, we interact with many spirits all the time in many levels. Even here in the physical when you help someone, you are acting as a guide. Same thing out there. You don't necessarily have to have the so called guardian angels, or very highly evolved beings. It could be anyone with good intentions.
I do agree that our own thoughts and intentions  crate and manifest all the time, but we also interact all the time whether we realize it or not with other spirits. Otherwise it would be a very lonely existence (here and everywhere in the multiverse) if we did not. Ultimately at the highest realm we are pure consciousness and are one, but we always experience individuality as the part of the soul expansion in many other levels including the physical realms, and while we experience these existences we do appear different and need to interact with one another to learn.
I have also had communicated with many entities who appeared that were helping me. One very interesting interaction was with a butterfly with a tiny human body and a woman's face. It was definitely not a part of my imagination or creation. It was a different entity. I had a false awakening one morning, and I realized I was perceiving the astral, when I opened my eyes, still in bed, just as you would normally wake up. My room was absolutely the same, but on the window it was that creature butterfly. I got startled and she said "Don't be afraid" then I stretched my hand, she flew and landed on my fingers. Then I saw her up close. She sort of whispered to me, and said "There are many invisible things around you, but humans don't posses the senses to perceive them. I have been with you for a long time". Then I woke up in the physical."

149  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Different ways to manifest in Lucid Dreams and real life. on: April 25, 2016, 06:12:44
First, to analyse all this you need to look at much bigger picture than just feelings manifesting into your life. It's not that simple.
1. Why have we entered this limiting reality?
 - To learn through challenges in order to gain knowledge, realization of creative powers, understanding oneness, understanding the forces of the universe, understand what causes progress and what causes destruction and regression.
 - Yes, we have ups and downs here, but we learn a lot more from downs than from ups. We have to come to terms with this fact in order to handle our downs better and realize what is the actual lesson from each challenge. That way this challenge will not reoccur.
 - This live span here as physical characters is just temporary. The only purpose is learning. We set up each life before we enter according to our needs. We don't realize it while we are at character, but if we understand this concept, all fears that we can not achieve everything we want in this live will disappear. Our true state is not in a physical character, but in our true state there is no limit of our achievements.

We exist in multiple dimensions at all time, and while your thoughts of being a pilot seem just thoughts here, they are creating a reality at that same time and your spirit there is in fact a pilot. So, in a sense you ARE what you think and what you feel, although you can not perceive it here. If at that time , you suddenly refocus in that reality, you will find yourself in an airplane in the air. And it is REAL. It is a matter of where your awareness is focused. These outside of our physical perception events activate our feelings because they are real. If we believe they are real, then manifestation into this reality is very possible. It maybe not in the same exact way, but along these lines, something of this sort may manifest. However, fears that it may not manifest create the biggest barriers. These beliefs are natural to our physical characters, because we see everyday limitations and we are programmed to think with limitations. I'm afraid that we can not reprogram this, but the best we can do is to be ok with the possibility of not manifesting and just learn as much as we can from this life. Once you become ok with that, then you automatically release that fear barrier. I have found from experience that once I stop caring about things if they will work out the way I want, they suddenly appear in my life.

So, stop forcing thoughts and stop being afraid of your "bad" feelings. How to do this? Don't take life here too seriously to a point where you think that this is everything and it will be a failure if you dont achieve certain things during this lifetime. You have endless life times to experience various things. Just relax and focus on what are your lessons here. Learn them well and do not be afraid.

Do not stop dreaming though. Always dream big, but with no fears that they may not manifest here. They do become a reality just outside of your spectrum every time you think and feel.
