Lumaza you bring another question to mind. Is it a male predisposition that causes male apers to think in terms of rescue?
Good question. Another would be, is it the a female predisposition that causes them to think in terms of being the "victim"?

 My upbringing taught me that you protect or help, no matter what sex you are. It is a part of you. Not a expectation on you.

 After posting in a another thread here on the Astral Pulse Forums, I went to do my Phase/soak session. I wanted to post this in that other thread as well, because parts of it are relevant to the discussion there, but I hate typing and I know this post here might get a bit lengthy right now, lol.
 Here's a link to that thread though: http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_projection_experiences/question_would_it_be_possible_to_astral_project_into_a_a_novels_story-t47346.0.html;msg368386#new

Now to today's Phase/soak session. I had been prodded here and "elsewhere" to go a bit more into my "healing modality". So here it is.
 After I lay back in the tub, I close my eyes and begin a Mantra, kind of mental song I use. Some of you may know it. It dates back thousands of years. It uses the words "Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung".

 I have used that Mantra for years now, to help MJ, my beloved, with her higher self's permission now and myself. MJ was diagnosed with terminal Cancer back in 2015. She had 2 forms of Cancer, totally independent of each other. One was Stage 3 Colon Cancer. The other was Stage 4B Endometrial Cancer. She was given 8 months to live after the Surgery and even if she did undergo Chemo. According to them "nothing" would help. I asked the Doctor if he believed in "miracles". He was too closed minded to answer that. She didn't do the Chemo.
 I told MJ she had a decision to make, do you want to stay or go? Thankfully she chose to stay. She began reading Spiritual books, quit smoking and completely changed her outlook on life. I had great friends here on the Astral Pulse and elsewhere that sent their positive thoughts and well wishes as well. I Thank them greatly for that. 2 years later and MJ's Cancer level is at that of a healthy person. Everyone has some level of Cancer in them. It's just not active at the moment.

 During that time I was being blocked from any type of NP activity. This was her decision to make, not mine. "They" knew that I would do anything in my power to change the circumstances. I mentioned above "her higher self's permission", because I found that not everyone wants to heal on "all" levels. Many times there is a good reason for their affliction. When I created my Recovery Wire Wrap Tree design, I did it not to amplify the Recovery itself, but to Amplify the growth that comes with said Recovery. In my design I have half the tree wilting away and the other half growing strong. The new portion of the tree is a completely different design from the wilted. The wilted/broken part is that of a Oak like style tree. The healthy portion is that of a "Bonsai" style tree showing "Spirit". Thus, the message, new growth through Recovery.

 Myself I have lived with Chronic Pain due to Degenerative Disc Disease and worsened by Trigeminal Neuralgia, both that I am beating right now "pill free".

 So, I start with that Mantra for a few minutes. This is normally met with some kind of visual. When I first started using this, I would mentally see a image of rushing water. This water would then pour into whoever at the time I was trying to help, MJ or I. When the target was myself. I actually felt the tactile sensations of the rush of water flowing through me. I have to thank Robert Bruce's NEW for that. It really taught me how to use direct etherical body focus and showed me ways to defer my pain as well.
 I have used the above Mantra for quite a while now and lately and for the last 3 weeks when I use it on myself as the target, I am met with the visual of a team of "Nanobytes" that is rafting down a river and then they all enter through my head. Earlier on, the first team had the hats, yes, actual hats that you would see a explorer in an expedition wearing. For the last week, the hat changed to a construction helmet. I actually feel them enter me as well. I feel their destination as well and was told awhile ago "that they will exit naturally when they are done". The weird thing is, when I focus on MJ, with her higher self's permission, I still see the gushing water itself flowing through and cleansing her. The "Nanobyte" team" visual only shows up when I am the target.
 So, that's my healing modality. Today though, I felt the rushing water flowing me, but this time I was met with the visual of me in the bathtub and there was black blood or something coming through my pores. The mass of black only stayed in the water for a minute, because almost immediately the water itself transformed that mass back into beautiful blue healing waters.
 This all takes a lot longer to type, then the actual experience is. It seems like this is some lengthy process, but the whole Mantra/visual thing only lasts for a few minutes.

 Now, to the reason I initially wanted post this in that other thread link above. After I did my healing focus, I changed back to some creative visualization, this time with that of just shooting webs from my wrists, just like Spider-Man does. Thank You for that Volgerle. (If you read that other link, you will see why I thanked Volgerle).
 So, I just started shooting webbing into the darkness. After awhile of this visual, a building in front of me came into focus. I shot my webbing at it and immediately felt the motion and got the visual of swinging forward. This was cool. I continued swinging from building to whatever was after that building. I then found myself on a flat rooftop and who is beside me, Spider-Man himself. I turned and spoke to him. He spoke back. I decided to find out who he really was, in my current simulation, so I began asking him things I was curious about. We spoke for awhile, then I ended the session.

 Afterwards I thought about it some more and realized the shooting web focus was similar to a target or should I say action of focus that I used years ago. As usual this one began spontaneously at first, then I explored it further. This one had to do with the tossing or launching of an anchor.

Once I was spiderman, jumping around between skyscraper walls of a big city, shooting out my net from my wrists, swinging and then making summersaults, and later hanging head-down with my net into a yard.

Here's Mr Leland on the Human Culture Zone:

I know what you mean, "Hero" dreams are quite prevalent in many of my LD's. Sometimes it's hard to tell if it was "Retrieval "scenario" or not.

 Thanks for the share of that link Volgerle.  smiley A walk down memory lane. Everyone needs a bit "rehashing" once in awhile. I have read much of Kurt's material. It's good to have a "re-fresher course" once in awhile.  wink

It should be possible do basically anything you imagine - that is the fundamental limitation. It has always been a goal of mine to enjoy some favorite fictional works as a participate or virtual reality observer.

On the other hand I have never read or heard about someone having the level of control to actually carry out an authentic and consistent experience like that.
Yes, imagination will get you there. But once there, the story would take on a life of it's own. I can't tell you how many times I have become aware in some kind of "cartoon" environment.
 It would be hard to, next to impossible to continue the written narrative of that story, because you wouldn't be able to control the other characters. Those character would likely have the characteristics of the book narrative, but the "plot" would soon change.

 I have become aware in LDs that I was in some kind of TV episode or movie environment, like "Friends". The characters were all the same, but the plot wasn't one that I had ever seen on the show. I wasn't embodied in one of those actors though. I was still me or at least I "thought" I was still me.

 When I was younger, it was often a "wrestling ring". My father was good friends with one of those TV wrestlers, so we often got tickets and went to some events. I would become aware in a LD that I was in the ring with one of the greats. I wasn't myself though. I was normally some "fantasy" superstar wrestler as well. But, I could control "my own" actions there.

Bummer about the Kasina, if you had the option to return the Laxman instead would you have still done away with the Kasina? I would love to try one before buying but its a pretty obscure technology in New Zealand, I don't think there is a place you can try them. I may have to take a leap of faith.
Yes. I preferred the Laxman. Better programs, better "goggles" and it had a "open eye option", even though I never used that way.

What is the key to beating the hypnic jerk? My experience has always been that once the jerk occurs I am awake and back to the body. If I try to ignore and sink back in, sometimes I would have sequences of jerks and waking up rather than ever getting past it so to speak. The times that I have projected consciously there was no jerk at all, due to wake and back to bed priming possibly.
I very rarely get the Hypnic Jerk when in a Phase session and if I do, I basically ignore it and keep moving on.

 I don't get it at night while sleeping. When I get SP, it normally begins with the gentle Astral winds and a mild body pulse, until both become constant, then I'm out. I would surmise though that the Hypnic Jerk is what people experience while nodding off while driving. I have had it like that before. Thankfully the jerk occurred and made me realize what was happening.

 To beat it, you have to stay completely consciously aware. It only occurs when we are on the brink of losing our awareness. If you are attempting to Astral Travel, you can't lose that conscious awareness. Perhaps it works as a fail safe. It does while driving.

 I have been getting PMs and emails asking me what is the importance of visualization in Phasing. So, after contemplating that further myself in my own Phase/soak session, I want to go into it further.

 I have been a member here since 201i. I used the name "Lionheart" in the past. For all but one year since, I have actively been involved in my own non physical adventures and explorations. I had a hiatus for about a year due to a physical ailment I had, that made it next to impossible to continue. But I overcame that. I don't take any pills, no Percocet anymore for pain, I even stopped taking my Gabopentin for my Trigeminal Neuralgia. I came to the conclusion that if I could make myself sick, then I can also make myself better. That mindset became reality.

 When I first began this practice, I used Frank's noticing. I had already been through months of the "climbing out of the body" techniques and didn't find that that technique was for me. So, after reading Frank's excellent primer in full, I learned and studied what I could on Phasing.

 When I did a Phase session, I always logged my results afterwards. Many times I came across the same thing. I would begin with some of Robert Bruce's NEW, (New Energy Ways). I would then do a bit of progressive relaxation, then I was ready for whatever came next and would begin noticing in the darkness before my closed eyes. This is when I would begin seeing Hypnagogic imagery. At first , the images came as flashes and orbs. Then color and shape seemed to arise. Next fractals and patterns, many times basic Geometric shapes. By now, about 45 minutes has passed and after about another 15-30 minutes, I found myself deep in the 3D darkness. But because I was new, I had to experience all the "signposts and exit symptoms" that most new people do. That meant that staying in that noticing focus for a hour to an hour and 15 minutes was quite a challenge in itself. I had to jump many hurdles, like salivating/swallowing, eyes feeling like they are opening, deafening sounds, violent vibrations, etc. You name it, I experienced it, lol.

 I looked at my Journals and I could see the same "pattern" playing out almost every time. Now it was my goal to shorten the time it took to get into the zone. So, I began playing with "creative imagery", imagination. I started with "motion based" imagery, like shooting a basketball, rowing a boat, playing ping pong, etc. This seemed to work okay. I could get a brief image, but then it disappeared as quickly as it came. If I could locked onto it, it always became a "in my face" full blown scenario. But still, it took up to an hour to do. I kept experimenting though. I used the focus on a child's spinning to quite a bit too. It had color, motion and for some reason, it didn't take long before it did something unexpected.

 Then I bought a Light/Sound machine. The machine created colors in fractals. These images came through the use of color and blinking lights. The machine also had Binaural Beats and musical accompaniment. So a program like Earth, let's say, would have the singing of birds, sounds of the outdoors and even a monkey scream that catches you off guard. The colors would be mainly browns and greens. This entire program would be based on giving you the mental associations of being outdoors. It worked very good too. But then the 20 minute-30 minute program ended and just left you in the dark. The program did what it said, but after the program was finished you were still left with work to do. I tested it on others around me, Family and friends and they found the same as well. But I also noticed that the program had somehow changed the person listening to it. Afterwards they got up and felt like a million bucks. They felt relaxed, rested and they also told me that they felt "frozen" while using the machine. I had felt that often too.
 I then wrote my own program for my light/sound machine. This time, eliminating the sound, but just using white as my color and the frequency of the flashes. I created it to bring the "user" into Theta state as quick as I could. Most of that program stayed in the Delta and Theta wavelength, so it created a very deep meditative state.

 Those light/sound machines are tools. They can help you get to the proper mental frequency, but you still have to do the work, per se. I wanted to find a way to emulate the effect of a light/sound machine, without actually using one. So, I began doing deeper personal research with visualization and imagery.

 I found that I could speed up the Hypnagogic imagery process of flashing lights, by just trying to focus on a starry night sky. Colors were simple and I found that all colors have their own mental associations. The color red, could be an apple, orange, the sun or an orange, etc.. I then began working with basic geometric shapes. Now, I noticed that this constant brain entrainment was beginning to pay off. It was taking much less time than it did before to get into the 3D zone, where the real fun begins. I also noticed that while focusing on shapes, for some reason "doors" of all shapes and sizes would appear. This led me to creating the "Doorway thread".

 At first people may find or opine that this daily exercise is a waste of time. It depends, what do you want to achieve? Do you want to experience a thrill ride, do you want to learn to do some inner "soul searching"? Do you want to go there just to learn what there is to learn and see what there is to see? What's your own personal reason for learning to AP? To succeed with any goal in life there is always some kind of "sacrifice" or learning curve. I hear many today say they want to learn, but don't have the time to do daily practice. Thankfully Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Hendrix and many of the greats didn't think that way. Yes it takes time, which means commitment. What it all comes down to is how bad do you want it and what are you willing to do to achieve it?

 I don't force it. You can't force it or pressure yourself. That's counterproductive. You must learn what works for you. If you can't visualize, (every one can, it's just once again they try to immediately do it and force it), then try using a different sense. I find motion based visualizations to be great. Using simple directions up/down, left/right, forward and backwards also creates almost instant "mental associations". Many of those associations involve shape/form and even tactile etheric sensations. You can't force them though. You need to just create the simple focus on whatever direction you wish and "allow" whatever is going to happen to happen. You need to go into this as a "new exploration". You can't overthink it. Don't question what you are seeing or why. For now, just go experience it. There is plenty of time to question it later. Keep a log on your progress. You will start seeing patterns that help you further along down you pathway as well!  smiley
 
 I have successfully mentored many throughout the years, either on Forums, via email/PMs and live in person too. Many of them found what they were looking for and no longer need the assistance. Some found too much of what they thought they were looking for and aborted and few others couldn't make it past the "fear test", no matter how badly they told they wanted to.
 I tell them all the same thing. I will help you learn "get there", but once there, you are on your own. They do succeed because they do put the time and sacrifice into it. They go into it with he right mindset and because of that, they are rewarded for their efforts.
 Still once in a while today they will tell me how things are going in their practice and life in general. Many of them have changed in ways though. That happens when you choose to open "Pandora's Box".
9  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: New Challenge: Focus on: December 11, 2017, 03:39:51
is this challenge being done with eyes open or closed? How are you keeping track of the time? Or is it just an educated guess?
Eyes closed. You could use a clock/timer to time your entire session. But you will find at first that it is very easy to judge how long you have held your focus on one single thing. A few seconds seems like a challenge in itself. After awhile, it doesn't matter how long it takes, because you will already be "there".
 The entire challenge is meant to increase your focus ability in general and the length you can hold it "steady" on one object or thought.

 The video link I posted was to have you focus on it, of course eyes open, for the duration of the video there. But, afterwards, if you have really been focusing deeply on the video and only the video, you will find that parts of that video are going to be "imprinted" in your closed eye screen, the darkness before your closed eyes. You may visualize it or you may just feel the tactile sensation of the motions you just watched. But something of note will occur.

True, I have always meant to get into light and sound machines, thanks for reminding me Lumaza. Might look into getting one for Christmas this year, I like the sound of the Kasina machine.
I owned a Kasina. I found it over-rated. I returned it and just used my Laxman. My Laxman I bought myself. The Kasina was a Christmas gift.
 I posted that because there are many places, like Spas, etc. in Europe that you go and try a session with one of either the PandoraStar, the Lucia and nowadays even the Laxman. I would try one first before you purchase one. Not everyone is good with bright lights like that and it can cause complications.

The theta state sounds a bit like "the void". It sticks out to me that you mentioned the physical jolt as beta waves start to form. I often get physical jolts when trying conscious projections. I wonder if that can be explained by a sudden emergence of beta waves as a response to exit symptoms or realizing that a dream transition is occurring or has just occurred.
It is the "theta" state. When you are in the 3D void, or when you have reached that level of consciousness, there is no bodily focus at all. A way to check how deep you are is to go back to that primer, that you used, for a minute and do some quick thought "thought=action". You will see the images appear immediately clear as day. If you speed up those thoughts, you can be viewing it like a "slide show".

 The "hypnic Jerk" is what you experience when you choose to consciously aware watch your sleep process. It is one of the signposts of a change in your current state of frequency. I saw it firsthand very quickly when I put my Laxman on my friends and Family. After a couple of minutes, they started showing sign of "hypnic_jerk". That's why I say that I believe light/sound stimulation cause DMT to be released from the Pineal Gland. When my test subjects were finished the session, they got up like they get up from a long slumber. At first they were dazy, in a fog, but then they felt incredibly refreshed, as in ready to start the day.

 Here's a link to more on Hypnic-Jerks.

 I just completed my daily Phase/soak session and in it the idea of " mental associations" reiterated it's importance. Before anyone attempts to Phase, it's a good idea to "prime the pump". You do that by taking a few minutes of just running through some mental pictures of basic geometric shapes and colors. Add some quick directional point focus to that and you are good to go. You don't have to spend long on each. But it will definitely prime the pump and not "front-load" you.

 I personally find the focus on the motion up and backwards will create the strongest tactile sensations. The left/right makes me feel like I am "tilting" one way or the other. I tend to not do the down focus often. I guess my lifetime programming here in the physical has me associating down with dismal and more of a sense of dread, akin to some form of Hell. I have tried to change that. But it takes awhile to "unlearn" all that garbage that has been programmed into us for such a long time.  tongue

Sweet post Madmagus. I have done a bit of research into the way brain waves affect these states too, it's a topic I want to learn more about.

Perhaps you would be willing to share your interpretation of a classic Theta meditation experience and what it is like.

I have had meditation sessions where time seems to fly by in a semi-blank mind state that can easily span 1-2 hours. Is this what a theta experience is like?
Thaomas, If you really want to learn more about the "Theta experience", you should check out Todd Acamesis's new device, "the PandoraStar". It has been getting great reviews from the Astral community.
 Another good one is the Lucia Light Machine.
 Both are being used quite a bit in Europe. Not so much here in the US though.
 
 I used a Light/Sound machine in the past and found it very easy to get into the zone. I felt it actually triggered the release of DMT almost immediately. Every person I tried my own Laxman that on, that doesn't consciously intend to project or has ever attempted to, had experienced something unusual. Most felt like they were immersed in the scene and also that they felt it hard to move, like SP was kicking in.
 The PandoraStar has been nicknamed the "DMT Machine". 

 The PandaStar and Lucia are way more powerful than the Laxman. But they are easy to find in the UK as well.

14  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: William Buhlman interview with Phase Evolution Youtube on: December 08, 2017, 21:14:14
Direct / indirect classification might have its origins in Raduga's classification of phasing methods. Direct is phasing from the waking state, while indirect is phasing immediately after you woke, but haven't moved yet.

Lucid dreaming is a completely different approach.
I call any process that you are completely consciously aware during the process, direct. Lucid Dreaming would be the "indirect" way, because you are waking up to it, becoming aware after the fact.

 If you do the WBTB and lose your consciousness, click out and click back in, that's considered LDing in my books. If you attempt the WBTB and stay conscious all the way, experiencing the exit symptoms, signposts, etc., then that's a direct approach. It's pretty simple to classify.

 Although, either way, direct or indirect still leads to a "non physical/non local" state of consciousness.

 ...and yes, I definitely agree that not every "can" do it. Some people just can't let go of the physical. They can't jump the "fear test" hurdle. I have mentored many people and that was always their biggest hurdle, even though on the outside, they wanted it so badly.
15  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: William Buhlman interview with Phase Evolution Youtube on: December 08, 2017, 21:01:26
I like listening and reading Buhlman. I had my first obe after I just finished reading his first book. Although somehow he doesn't seem to say something particularly different than others, he gives you confidence and comfort that it's doable. I also like his no-nonsense attitude. Even the fact that he doesn't shy from acknowledging that he can't have more than 1 obe per 10 days on average, and has longer no-obe spells, shows he's a great guy.
I like listening to and reading William as well. He really does have "no nonsense" approach and he shows his passion in his words.

 The only guy I found that showed more passion towards his practice, is Dr. Albert Taylor. Not a well known name in most Astral Travel circles. I listened to him on Coast to Coast AM. George Noory was starting in with some of his "fear porn", I call it, stating the evils and dangers of Astral Projection. Albert said "no, just no". He said, he has never experienced anything even close to what George was saying. George than spoke about good and evil or there. Once again, Albert said "no", not that he has seen and he has had thousands of NP experiences.
 Albert worked for NASA in the past as well. So he really had to watch his "p's and q's" when talking to his peers about his experiences.

I have been trying out the focus challenge for a couple of weeks now. I think my longest run was around fifty five seconds. I learned that length of the run may not be important though, better twenty second runs have resulted in exit symptoms. The best runs seemed to involve a combination of a nearly forgotten background activity (the counting), and flow state engagement with a particular thought pattern or visualization.

Difficulties encountered include sudden and dramatic exit symptoms. From nothing to roller coaster style, so shocking that there is no chance to think. Inability to get into the flow or hold the focus is another problem. I am coming to understand this one might be significantly influenced by chemical imbalances in the brain.
If you are having exit symptoms that severe, then I would say you need to see them through. A "Rainbow" awaits on the other side of the Tidal Wave.  wink
 During my first intended conscious OBE, I could swear a Helicopter was going to land on my home and that there was a Earthquake occurring as well. If I didn't see it through, I wouldn't be here typing this right now. Fear tests are a major hurdle that are extremely important to overcome.

 It's all still progress though. Baby steps at first!  smiley

I scanned through the pdf of Frank's posts recently and I believe at some points he mentioned being able to hold some level of NP awareness whilst also being awake in the physical. I think he mentions doing so in the presence of some other Astral Pulse forum members, if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure with strong belief and correct attention, all manner of wonderful things can be achieved with our consciousness.
Dual awareness. Hard to maintain, but definitely achievable!  smiley

Interesting interview done recently, about 4 weeks ago with William Buhlman.  I think my favorite part is the interviewer does a good job of asking practical OBE questions and keeping the interview on topic.  It was interesting to hear William say in the first 10 minutes he usually has an OBE only about once every 10 days.  It is also interesting at the end William says he doesn't really know anyone that has success with direct methods and he doesn't even "waste people's time with direct techniques".  Do you all agree direct techniques are a waste of time?
Hmm, William said that. That surprises me. That would be like saying the Monroe Institute and it's programs are a waste of time as well.

 I don't agree it's a waste of time. I enjoy being fully conscious while Phasing. LDs can be difficult because you need to become consciously aware in them. Many times you will find yourself in situations/Simulations akin to what we have here in this physical realm. You will be involved in whatever scenario you are in, thinking it's "this" physical realm and you are reacting  accordingly to it, then you abruptly wake up and lose it all or at some point in the experience you realize, through various DTs (Dream Triggers), that you are indeed in another place, while your physical body is sleeping.

 My goal is to be able to shift my consciousness at will. I spoke to Tom Campbell about this years ago and he said that goal is attainable and that the NP is only simple shift away. The problem is, we need to learn to get out of the way and allow that shift to take place. This comes from the result of practice, patience and perseverance.

 Astralm, people that have a problem with instantly visualizing can actually learn ways to help that new skill along.

 My very first successful OBE totally consciously aware came after watching a video on "Candle Burning". After the 15 minutes of staring at the candle in the video, with the lights out, so there were no distractions, I was left with the "imprint" of that candle in my mind's eye. The same imprint process can come after looking at your computer screen at night in the darkness, then closing your eyes. When I do that, I am normally  left with the lit frame of the screen as a imprint and I can hold my focus on that for awhile, until it too morphs anew.

 The same can be said for that video link to a "primer", that I posted on above. I will guarantee you that if you watch that video at night, with the lights off and no distractions, that immediately after you do, you will see "something" when you immediately close your eyes afterwards.

 I have very vivid LDs almost nightly. I attribute them to the daily exercises that I do during my waking hours. That and my nightly affirmation. I have used almost the same affirmation nightly, no matter if I am home in my own bed or staying in a Motel while on the road at my shows. This affirmation goes like this.
 "By my act of will I release my focus over my physical body. Please take me to your desired destination. SHOW ME, what I need to "SEE". TEACH ME, what I need to LEARN. I am consciously aware knowing my physical body is sleeping and I learn from and enjoy my experiences. I also will have full recall when I awaken."
 The capitalized words above I mentally envision. I used to say "consciously aware in my Dreams". But I dropped the word Dream from that equation. I realize at the time, I am in some "Otherwhere".

Sadhguru  When you reach for a cup or flick off a light switch, you have to track your energy (metaphorically if you like) as it flows through your arm.  This directs your intent and attention, and truly puts you in the moment, puts you in the action so to speak.  Just casually watching the Now doesn't get you there.  Full involvement with the process of motion, the moment-to-moment accomplishment of intention, is required.  Thanks for the post.
You can also "etherically" reach for that cup or flick that light switch off and you will still feel the energy as if flows through your "etheric" arm. Get used to that kind of "disassociation" from the physical body and you will find it much easier to maneuver in the "non physical", when you find yourself there.

 Excellent post!  cool

 This shows the importance of daily practice. The results of daily practice indeed is "brain entrainment". The more you entrain your mind to access these frequency levels, the more we get used to that "state of consciousness" itself. That was always the goal of Binaural Beats and Isochronic tones as well. It's just the Binaural Beats and Iso tones are "tools" that help you reach/access those states, even though you can do it on your own through your own hard work.

 The problem these days seems to be that people don't have the time to meditate. I listen to Radio talk shows and almost every guest now mentions the problem with teaching things like this these days is that people lack the effort to do the work. It is a "Now" generation and things like Astral Projection/Meditation, etc., are not things you learn overnight. Dr. Eben Alexander said in a interview last week, that I listened to, that people nowadays want results "yesterday". They want to access the "other realms" as easily as they do their phone and we all know here, that it doesn't work that way. Another man I greatly respect, Sadhguru, says the same thing. I have listened to quite a few of his video seminars over the last year and agree with almost everything he says. He, like most of the famous Authors of Meditation, Non Local States of Consciousness, etc., is having a serious problem lately relaying his message.

Lumaza I just started reading Astral Pulse and I want to thank you for your posts which are excellent, inspirational and make me think about a lot of new things.

The problem I have right now is whenever I close my eyes and visualize I get frustrated that whatever I visualize seems dim and far in the background. Like the blackness behind my eyes is masking the visual that I can sense is there. Do you have any tips for increasing powers of visualization? When I read other people's posts it seems like they can get more impressive visuals quite easily and I think this is holding me back from phasing from the waking state.

Thanks.
 
Thank You Octave for your kind words!  smiley

 Don't get discouraged. Like they say, "Rome wasn't built in day".

 The first time I tried to "purposely" visualize I found it hard as well. But then I got a hunger pang and immediately thought of "pizza". The image of pizza immediately followed that thought and I found that visualizing isn't hard at all, lol. It was when I was trying to stress it though.

 When you close your eyes and think of something simple like a ball or apple, it will appear slowly, as a faded image at first and perfectly flat, as if you are looking at a picture in a book. But as your "non physical" focus deepens, so does the dimensional aspects and visuals of that ball or apple. You will find it wants to change/morph into something else as well. Now, you can either passively observe this new scene and allow it freedom to commence or you can change your focus back to you original object. Both do the same thing though, because both of them have taken you away from your immediate "physical focus".

 Picture your kitchen. What did you do today? Any of those things immediately trigger a visual of some kind. My focus techniques and challenges teach you to hone onto and prolong those visuals. The same happens with focusing on 6 directions, up/down, left/right and forwards/backwards. Each of those directions and movements creates a automatic association in your mind. That association normally comes with a visual or sometimes more of a tactile sensation. Through my daily exercises, I experience both the visual and the "etheric" sensations of the movement. I have  been doing my exercises for about 5 years now. So, they are "entrained" in me. All my exercises work towards "brain entrainment".

Great post!  I love it.  It might be a possible idea to work this into a monthly series where the challenge changes each month and then comes back around again so you can see x number of months down the road how you have progressed.

You make a great point about losing the pulse, I love the way in which you phrased that statement.  Honestly I believe it is just a winter season for consciousness exploration as a whole, at least in the society of which I am a part (Western).  This does not surprise me as there was a clear 'fall' period the last few years after the 'Summer' period that was the late 90's through late 2000's.  I however strongly feel we are primed to start climbing out of 'winter' and into 'spring' though and am exited to see what this new 'summer' will bring.
Thank You Astralm!  smiley

 I agree. The problem seems to be that people here, especially on this Forum think that something like this is unnecessary and a waste of time.

 I hope it is just the "Winter season" effect here and that a new "Spring" will rise. But at the moment, I have my doubts.

 One of the first focus targets I ever used was that of a child's toy "spinning top", akin to what is seen being used in the movie "Inception". I didn't use it to gauge which reality I was in, like Leonardo did in the Movie. I used it because it was a great focus target period. It was easy to picture, had motion and you never knew when it was going stop and topple over. I like focus targets with movement and find them more interesting to keep focus on.

 So, anyone that is still wants to try this, we will put our focus on a simple spinning top toy. The color doesn't matter. Just simply visualize a spinning top. When it fades, bring it back. If it alters in it's design or path, allow it the freedom and passively observe it.

 Like I said above, I find this focus target very easy to use. You can search the words "spinning top" in the search engine here and will find many posts of mine wherein I am talking about using it for some kind of "Launchpad". You don't have to use just one Launchpad. You can have many of them. Sometimes you feel like using this one, another time that one. It's good to have options.

 When I began using this Focus, I saw the spinning top of more of a picture on a screen. It took awhile until it took on more of a 3D look to it. It didn't take long for it to morph into something new though. I think my first time, it morphed into a "Ballerina", which was completely unexpected. But, it has led to many interesting adventures.

 I have always had something for spirals and Pyramids. They show up quite a bit in my daily Phase/soak sessions. The spirals have led to my new venture with making Crystal Amplifiers.
 This entire venture began when I spontaneously began Channeling some deceased Artist. I was a Salesman for many years. I was even employed by other companies to come in and train their people. When it came to Art, the only face I could draw would probably look like a "emoji", lol. I was a visionary though. I could see some great designs, but could never manifest them. Until a few months back, that is. All of our Elemental Dragons and the concept of them were based on my visions. Mj, my better half is the "Artist Extraordinaire" of our Ma and Pa Company.

 I was in a Phase soak session and suddenly found myself surrounded by beautiful Wire Art. Most were in the shape of Trees. I have seen some in the past at Art shows, but never gave it a second thought. These weren't necessarily ordinary trees though. These were made with purpose. I was told how I always have the intent to help, be a Invisible Helper" in the other realms and this is why I undergo Retrievals there, but that making these new Wire wrap tree designs, would be a way of making a difference in the physical as well. I would go into it with the intent in my mind, while making these designs, that the sole purpose was to "amplify" people's "positive" thoughts, wishes and desires. By doing that I will be a somewhat invisible helper here too. So, I agreed and began to learn what I could in the daily Phase Sessions that followed. My designs are changing almost daily now. Recently I did a really cool design, that while making it, I basically zoned out for the 7 hours that it took to create it. I was amazed and am still amazed by the daily "happy accidents" I have that lead to some new design.
 Before I make one, I close my eyes and meditate, allowing the creative energy to flow. I don't know who I am Channeling, names aren't important there. Titles and roles seem to be the norm there. But I give Thanks everyday to whoever it is that has decided to aid me in this Journey.
 Here's a website I am using for my pictures. The tree I spoke above right now, I labelled the "Tesla Coil Crystal Amplifier". The spirals are created with a in take and a outtake. It took about 6 hours of twisting just those coils. That time is very meditative though. I normally make these between 9:00 pm-4:00 am. I am a night owl and I love the peace and quiet. It's also known as the "Psychic quiet time".

Things that changed before/during this time:
I eat lots more of fruit.
Drink only water.
Eat less.
Meditate more regularly
Been in sun and nature more
Tried being thankful for stuff
It sounds like you are becoming more "conscientious" of everything. That's comes with the "heightened sense of awareness", that this practice creates.
 You not ownly become more aware of your physical body (earthly vessel), but you become aware of "everything" around you much more and you care about what you see.  smiley

 We just had a question on this a few days ago. Nameless mentioned that sometimes it seems to come in "waves".
25  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: A story to tell, a question to ask on: November 24, 2017, 00:16:46
 Hello Chris and welcome to the Astral Pulse!  smiley
 
 It seems like you are experiencing a "heightened" sense of awareness. This sometimes happens to experiencers of non physical exploration. You notice the colors seem brighter and more vivid and if you concentrate long enough, you seem to be able to see "reality" fluctuations, that most aren't aware of. I can't tell you this is completely normal, for many people don't experience this, even those that do experience the NP consciously aware. But I can say, you are not alone in this either.  wink

 As for the SP (sleep paralysis) experiences. When you find yourself in that state, stay calm and passively observe it all. There is no harm there. You will have to control your conscious thoughts though, because at that moment, you are in a "zone", whereas thought = action is instantaneous. If you think you are being pinned down by some kind of Demonic force, then a Demonic force you will see.

 I'm not a Moderator here, but at the time, many of them are busy with other things. So, I will give them a hand and tell you in advance that this is a Family Forum and because of that we try to keep the tone/language at a civil pace, at a minimum. Even "assinuating" (#) crass/bad language is not permitted here.
