76  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: July 07, 2017, 23:06:21
 I just finished my afternoon Phase session and it was "awesome". I will get to that in a bit.

 Right now I want to say the message that I was told right of the bat was. "I am being Guided to doing this". I am being taught to teach you". Take that how you wish. I don't believe in coincidences, never have. I believe if you are reading this there is a good reason for that, just like the reason I am writing all of this is.

 Last night I had 2 spontaneous OBEs. I label these OBEs because I actually had a "exit sign/symptom" (you can read more on Exit symptoms in this thread:

 I went to sleep and made my mental affirmation to see what I need to see and learn what I need to learn, just like I do every night. Many times I will become Lucid in a Dream. This night though, I thought I was asleep, but then I felt a strong movement forward. This motion was of moving forward in front of my feet. Normally my spontaneous OBEs begin in full Sleep Paralysis, then I feel my ankles/legs touched and lifted. But this night there was only motion. Soon a small "portal" of some sort showed up and I was looking down a tunnel or pipe of some kind. The images at the end of the tunnel were very small. It was like viewing from the opposite side of a pair of Binoculars or Telescope. I wrote about it in a recent here too:;msg367060#msg367060
 After my first OBE, I soon felt motion again and found myself somewhere else again. Not much recall on this one though. I think there was a lesson to it though and that I will share in a minute.

 So, back to today's Phase session. I laid back in the water and began some simple ping ponging. This is when the message came about being Guided. I listened and was also told that I need to get a bit more specific on body positions. I wasn't told in plain words, the messages come through more as very strong thoughts and impulses. They immediately consume my entire thought process. Once I have received one, I can continue back to what I was doing before, that being my "ping pong" directional focus.

 I immediately noticed something that could confuse people. When standing, front and back is simply in front of you and behind you. So the motion moving forwards or backwards is easy to get. Up and down is now rising and falling, but you are rising above your head and falling below your feet. Right/left is simply to the left or to the right of you.
 But, lying down, it will change and confuse you. Forward and backward is now in front of your feet and above your head. Up/down is still rising and falling, but now you are rising above your stomach and falling under it. Left/right stays the same. This is very important to say because it may cause you to "overthink" things.

 Even though forward is in front of your feet, your accompanying visual is still the motion of moving forward. Example: racing forward on Rollercoaster.

 In my Phase session today I explored the "Pace/Pilot car" scenario a bit more. I began with the forward/backwards. I found that for this session forward seemed to feel right. So I stayed with that. I messed around with a Rollercoaster visual, then some driving, using a "pace/pilot car" about 10 feet in front of me. For some reason I decided to change it to skiing. So I had a guy ski in front of me (pace car) and it was very cool. The snow was flying, it was beautiful. He was taking sharp curves and then all of a sudden he hit a "mogul". I felt the bump. He then hit another one and another one. He then hit a huge one that sent him flying. So I did too. That was awesome.

 I then changed it over to a Motorcycle scenario. Again there was the speed, the curves etc., but this time he hit a actual ramp and once again, the flying occurred.
 This immediately reminded me back to when I was new myself to conscious shifting. I was listening to a tape program by Steve G. Jones that used the mental visual and feel of moon walking, whereas there is 0 gravity. At first you begin with a simple step. Then another and another. but the step takes longer and you seem to move quite a bit further, because of the 0 gravity. Soon you take a bit of a leap and that feels great, so much so that you take a huge jump and find yourself floating or flying in that area. By now, if you stayed with the visual and in that scenario long enough, you have already encountered your conscious shift. Just don't think back to your physical body or your session will immediately cease. This is when you create a intent or go to your Happy Place and go explore.

 My OBE last night helped me because I experienced the forward motion as being in front of my feet. When you visualize forward, you don't need to see your feet though, lol. I was just showed the importance in relaying this message to people.
 Thank You!  smiley

 Yodad, the ping ponging is a mental exercise. But it also creates a real tactile feeling. Although that tactical feeling is Etheric, at first it will still create a physical response. Example, Focus on your finger. Now focus on moving your "etheric" finger up or down. You will likely twitch or move your physical one as well. that is a automatic response/stimuli coming from your brain.
 My exercise help you shut down that automatic physical response while still being able to feel movement, but now it is on a etheric level.

 The ping ponging feeling occurs from the simple action of focusing on different points across from each other. This creates a etheric pull. Example. up/down, left/right or forward backward. Think of these points as surrounding your body, about a foot away. It doesn't matter where you are practicing this. In bed doesn't mean that by focusing on the point under you that you will find yourself on the floor. In the etheric, the floor isn't there. Just know that.
 When I first started my practice I became aware of where I was. I would have a hard time because I would think a focus on under would put me under my bed, lol or a focus on the ceiling would leave me up there. But I soon got past that because it was the direction that was important, not the location. Example, when focusing on your moving your etheric finger, you may think, wait a second my hand is on the chair, how can I move it down. That would become a mental obstacle to you. But if you realized that chair wasn't there period, the obstacle is gone. So now it's easy to move your finger down, because it won't hit anything. Change your mindset, you change your reality.

 When you begin bouncing your focus between 2 opposite directions it does create a "virtual" pull. Part 2 "enhancing" makes that pull stronger and more apparent.

 Greetings Duality and Welcome to the Astral Pulse!  smiley

 I didn't post in your first thread here yesterday because I saw that the replies you received were all spot on.

 I know what it is like to lay there all night waiting. It's actually quite tiring and the next day you feel out of it. It happened to me as well. But that was when I trying to force something to occur.

 Ways to rectify it. Start with a simple one, don't attempt to have a conscious shift while in bed. At least for now that is. You have programmed yourself all your life that bed is for sleep.
 Now to the sleep paralysis subject. SLEEP PARALYSIS IN NOT NECESSARY FOR A SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS. I put that in large letters, because for some reason people seem to be targeting that instead of the real target which is achieving a conscious shift.

 So you are lying down. Maybe you do a bit of progressive relaxation to help you let go. You then focus on your breathing. But now you are n ultra aware mode, just awaiting the first "sign post/exit symptom". But one doesn't show up or at least one that you "expect" doesn't show up. So, you need to lose expectations.
 Now you are just lying there focusing on your breath and awaiting the show to begin. You have cleared your mind. But now what is happening? Most likely nothing, other then you are just staring into the darkness before our eyes.
 Now is when you should make a intent. Do you have a "Happy Place"? If you don't mentally create one. Use that as your launch pad. Do something constructive and fun, not just boringly lying there awaiting the show. Use some kind of motion based technique. What do you like, skiing, oaring, swimming. Do that motion "Etherically". Don't move your physical arms or body though. Maybe go mentally walk around your home. There is so many things you can do other than focusing on your physical breathing that are proactive. Focusing on your breath is still focusing on the physical You need to bypass that at some point during your practice and go beyond the breath.
 You can find some more ideas in my Doorway thread here. Every "Sticky" on the Astral Pulse has something in it you can use. The stickies are written by people that have achieved success many times with undergoing a shift in consciousness. The Stickies are the threads in BOLD BLUE LETTERS found in the Sub-Forums here and are very informative.
79  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Quick "Astral Related" Question. on: July 07, 2017, 19:53:04
You just can't beat consciously entering a dream environment without having fallen asleep.
Agreed. The Tibetan's really hit on something extraordinary with their Tibetan Dream Yoga.

 Last night I had two spontaneous OBEs. I label them an OBE simply because they were accompanied by an actual exit symptom. It was very strange because I actually thought I had already fell asleep. I wasn't attempting to do anything. The next thing I felt was movement forward, that gradually sped up. Then I went into tunnel vison, whereas I was seeing some kind of scene, like I was looking through a toilet paper roll. The scene/people at the end of the tunnel were very small at first. It was like I was looking through the wrong end of a pair of Binoculars or a Telescope.  

 This time, I opened my eyes or what I thought was my physical eyes and the whole scene became a normal sized view. There was people sitting around a dining room table. I thought it might have been my Family, but soon saw it wasn't. We chatted for awhile and unfortunately soon after that, I "clicked out" and the next thing I knew, I was becoming consciously aware again.  The forward motion was occurring again. This time, I found myself in a completely different place.
 I knew I had my "sleep mask" on, so I knew that anything I was seeing, wasn't here in this realm. If I opened my physical eyes, I would have just seen plain darkness.

 I have written about this "tunnel"/toilet paper roll view experience before here on the Astral Pulse, under my former name here Lionheart. It seems to occur from/during spontaneous OBEs.
80  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Need help for second OBE on: July 07, 2017, 04:47:41
After having no succes with this methode, decided to try to get in sleep paralysis by WBTB at night after sleeping for 4h.
I always fall in sleep after doing the proces.
Also I try doing it in the day ,after relaxation trying to get  sleep paralysis, still no succes.
Welcome to the Astral Pulse!  smiley

 I copied your quote above because I saw your initial goal has changed. In the beginning you wanted to have a OBE and you did. Now you want to get into sleep paralysis, which not everyone will experience every time they attempt to project and some people don't' get at all.  It is not a necessity when you undergo a "shift in consciousness".

 Your technique sounds good. Progressive relaxation into breath work but then what? You say you empty your mind, then what happens. Maybe a vibration or some kind of quick hypnagogic image? Then your mind kicks in and the excitement of the journey begins. ...and then it is done as quick as it started. It wasn't like your first OBE. It likely won't be that way again either.
 My first attempted consciously aware OBE came after watching a video on "candle staring". After staring at the candle, I closed my eyes and saw the imprint still there. I focused on that for as long as I could. A gentle wind soon turned into the sound of Helicopter landing on my roof. A very light little body tingle turned into a rocking and rolling earthquake. None of my experiences afterwards were that extreme, not even close. Except for one that I had spontaneously whereas I did awake in full SP and felt myself being lifted by my ankles up to my ceiling, then spun through my ceiling like a cork screw. It was rather intense.

 So what I am saying is that your experiences will change and be different then before. Sometimes you also seem too aware awaiting for the OBE to occur. Your excitement becomes your enemy here. You need to set the stage per say, but also have a intent of what you want to do once you do achieve the conscious shift.

 You can then use some proactive methods, like climbing a ladder/wall, swimming, oaring, whatever it is you like that contains motion.
 Check out my 6pt focus that can be found in the Doorway thread here. It should give you some good constructive ideas.;msg367052#new

 If you did this once, you can do it again. Sometimes that second time can be more trying then the first. Your practice, patience and perseverance will see it through. You will find that sometimes you need to tweak your method a bit as well. I have many ways to get into a good NP focus. I change it up all the time to keep it fresh and interesting.

 Hopefully this helped in some way! Good luck!  smiley

  When I first read it I thought maybe this was some sort of learning simulation for doing soul retrievals.  Or, perhaps it really was. 
I thought that too. If I was going to teach someone to do a "Retrieval", one of the best ways would be to use a emotional attachment as a training mechanism. Therefore you instantly want to help the person/people in need because you know them on some level. It would mean more to you at the time and thus cause you to react.

 After while, it just becomes a part of who you are, at the being level. You help because you know you can and for that you get called on to undergo them. You have to control your emotions in a Retrieval though. Emotions get in the way of rational thought at the time.
82  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Enhancing the 6 pt Focus on: July 07, 2017, 00:23:31
  If you are new to this Forum, try the 6 pt focus technique. I will guarantee that just the simple "ping ponging" of directions, which by the way can be done anytime almost anywhere, will indeed lead to some kind of experience for you. This doesn't take years of practice to achieve. Something will happen and maybe that initial sneak peek into something out of your current mindset with create enough curiosity to be asking for more.

 Use a journal to log your progress. Journal after every session. That way, you can follow your progress with this practice in general.

 Today I wish to focus more on the "enhancing" of the pull. But first I just wanted to add another thing that I found was important in this practice. That is time or place. Yes, using the same time schedule, which can be difficult because of life itself or using a place or special chair etc., will also help with the mental conditioning.
 William Buhlman, a famous Astral Projection Author, states that he uses his couch for his practice and that his consciousness is so used to it, that sitting on it period anytime begins the "shifting" process itself.
 A good friend of mine on another Forum, brought up the idea of her purchasing a "bean bag" chair just for this practice itself. Being the entire practice in general, not just the 6 pt focus.

 When I was first new to this I had to learn lessons the hard way, as do most of us. I would hear you should do this or that and totally ignore it thinking it's unnecessary. One of those lessons occurred while ignoring the "never try to AP in bed". After my initial OBE that came following a "Candle burning" technique, instead of using a chair, I started practicing in bed. The problem wasn't me going to sleep while attempting the "Mind Awake/Body Asleep" focus, it was with now trying to go sleep in bed at all. Somehow, I ruined my inner programming that we all have that says "Bed is for sleeping". When I laid down to go sleep, I automatically began Phasing and sometimes it lasted for hours. I couldn't turn it off. So, be careful what you wish for, lol.  
 I did get passed that stage. It took finding a happy balance between the 2 of them. But it caused many sleepless nights just the same.
 Getting back to the mind awake/body asleep technique. This is one of the most used techniques that is mentioned and still used today, by many of the famous Authors of Astral Projection. In it, you basically stay aware while allowing your body to fall asleep. This can be a very time consuming practice. When I first began using it, it took anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and half to hit that mark. This 6 pt focus that I am sharing here, if anything, will consume all that time doing something fun and adventurous, instead of just staring into the darkness and waiting and waiting and waiting.

 Now to the Enhancing.

 To begin with we are going to work on some tricks to kick start the feeling of motion into gear.

 This first part will serve two purposes.  First, it will exercise and kind of loosen up your muscles, thus helping you to relax. The second thing it will help with, is making the last thing before you close your eyes a tactile sensation itself.

 So, stand up. Give yourself about 6 feet clearing all around you. Now with your eyes open. Walk forward 3 feet, then backwards 6 feet. Walk forward 6 ft, then backwards 6 ft.  Feel the sensation, ending back in the middle where you started again. Once in the middle (without turning your body), you are going to move 3 feet to the left and then 6 feet to the right, then 6 ft to the left, 6 ft right for 3 cycles, finally returning to the middle again.

 Now do the same process with your eyes closed. When you are finished, open them and we go to step 2.

 Put your hands on your hip and bend forward, then bend backwards for 3 cycles, finally ending straight up again.  Now do the same with left and right, for 3 cycles. Lastly, reach up, extending your toes as high as you can, then crouch down as far as you can, for 3 cycles.
 Repeat that with your eyes closed, then sit down, lay down whatever you prefer.
 Now, if you actually did this entire exercise, you are confirming and committing on a deeper level your intent and your consciousness has received that message. That is what ritual is all about. A gauge of your intent. How bad do you want this?

 Close your eyes and begin a bit of ping ponging of for a minute or two. Feel the tug o war. Feel the uniqueness of each direction.
 We are going to slow the speed down on the ping ponging now and we are going to synchronize it with our breathing. The synchronizing with the breathing is very good to enhance the strength of the pull and overall tactile sensation of each direction.
 Start with your focus on the up/down, a breathe in breath will be rising/up, a breathe down a falling/floating down feeling. Do this for 3 cycles. Next we move to the frontwards and backwards and do the same thing for 3 cycles. Breathe in, in this case is backwards. Breathe out is forwards. Next do it to left/right. I am left handed so I usually do breathe into the left, right is out. But that doesn't really matter here. You can choose whatever one feels comfortable to you. Slowing down the breath will enhance the tactile sensation.

 By now the feeling of motion should be going strong. Now we go even further. This is where it gets fun.
 We will begin with associating the direction with common things we already experience in this life.
 Front, will be some kind of driving, flying simulation. You could use the visual of driving a vehicle. This is something common to most of today. See the road ahead and follow where it leads or fly overtop of the trees, waters, buildings, whatever you can visualize works. Now that "etheric" tactile sensation should be really good.
  A Roller coaster ride is very good with the forward tactile focus as well. I find it generally harder to prolong though because a Rollercoaster ride is normally very short. But it is extremely intense. So does the visual of a spinning vortex or portal.

 A friend of mind on another Forum said she had a hard time with the driving visual because she kept loosing her tactile focus to focusing more on the poles, trees and homes that she was passing by. I figure that's a good thing. It shows how deep her focus was to the scene she had created as it was. In that case I say, abort the 6 pt focus and follow where "this" new occurrence is leading you. After all, a focus outside of you physical body is what we are trying to achieve.
 Other people have reported to me that the had a hard time with it also because they would getting "swayed" into something else. Not one of them said they had problems with the motion or visuals themselves. Their problems occurred while already visualizing itself.
 When I first got into this practice I was met by a "Guide". That guide came in the form of my deceased brother in law. He taught me "depth perception" and basically how to navigate the "Otherworlds". He also taught me how important it was to learn to "passively observe" and to learn to "allow".
 I would be attempting a Phase session and then all of a sudden a Horse or car, plane, rocket etc. would come into my visual screen, but I would always be behind it, watching it. Soon I would end riding it or in it, as of the car, plane. But for some reason my visuals began with some sort of "Pace Car" or vehicle. I don't know it this happens with others here too, but I experienced it myself.
 Okay, back to the 6 pt enhancing.
 So, forward was easy. Backwards, do everything from your forward simulation in reverse. Drive in reverse, fly in reverse, go through that spinning vortex backwards. I find it very intense and hard to hold a backwards focus. The tactile feeling is immediate though.

 Next to up/down. We can use up as climbing, a balloon rising, Rocket simulation, flying, all kinds of things. Elevator ride, there is plenty or visuals that we mentally associate with almost every direction. As I said, backwards seems to be the challenge for me.
 What goes up must come down. So for down we can use floating down to Earth from your up focus. Moving down the wall. Diving into the water. Going down on a Elevator. Once again this is very easy to associate with.

 Now to side to side. The best ones I find for this is rolling waves. Swinging in a hammock is good too. Basically any kind of swinging effect would suffice, even a simple visual of a Pendulum swinging side to side to side.

 Don't worry if you can't see these things or visualize them yet. Just know they are there and sooner then later they will be there.

 You don't have to do the 6 points/direction every time. I personally like to stick with one direction for a entire session, sometimes many sessions, just to acclimate myself fully into associations with that direction itself.
 If anytime during my attempts something else begins to occur or take shape, I fully allow the next thing to bloom and I immediately abort my initial 6 pt focus. That is our goal anyways. Like I said above, if anything, this 6 pt technique will totally consume your entire focus, thus giving time for the "shift" to occur itself. Many times you will just find yourself "there" and once there, it's time to explore your new surroundings.

 Practice this for the next week and I will be back with more.

Alien mind!?

Are we talking about philosophically alien entities, something born and native to the non physical, or the spirits of extra terrestrials from other planets in ours or similar universes.
Either or. Take your pick.
 To fully understand a Human's mind, you need to be Human as well. So, why wouldn't it work the other way around?
84  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: World Is A Simulation on: July 05, 2017, 05:20:23
If that comment is pointed anywhere towards me, I am only too impressed and offended at the same time, my friend. wink
Lol. You know better then that. That last comment was in response to Thaomas's post. I even quoted it before I replied!  smiley

The 'logic' isn't always apparent at first. We also need to add in a mix of feeling and intuition...and give it time to percolate.

 That is what Science lacks. They (the Scientific community) won't allow their logical brains to except anything else. Even if they were shown the truth, it would be beyond their comprehension and for that ridiculed as false. Tesla and others have tried and look where that got them! 
85  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: World Is A Simulation on: July 04, 2017, 23:40:19
I am happy to be proved wrong though. How can we understand the logic behind this stuff?
You can't. The only ones that can understand an Alien's mind is another Alien themselves.  grin

 There is many things the Human mindset cannot comprehend. Our answers based on current "Science first" has proven to be broken logic. In another 100 years, what I am saying will be agreed on, because in a hundred years, we will also have a different mindset.

  I appreciate all the work you did in amassing all the research for this. You basically named almost every Author there is on Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming, which in the end is all the same thing, "a shift in consciousness" . That is quite a lot of work in itself.  smiley

 I have read your book and it is very good up to the point of all the rubbish about "Predators". If you would take some good advice, I would leave that part out. It seems "you" need to handle your own fears first, before you attempt to teach other people how to handle theirs.

Can't remember the details but a shopkeeper (I think) said 'what's that smell' while looking at me walking over. This was said neutrally and not nastily. I asked what she thought it (I) smelled of and she replied...


I mean, really?!!!!
I find that these "out of the blue" comments and happenings aid us with our Dream recall. They certainly do catch our attention and stay in our minds. Perhaps this will lead to you remembering more about your Dream later today.

 The other day while in a OBE, a attractive young lady, walked up to a table I was sitting at and began rubbing against me. I questioned why, she replied "to help me gain awareness". It worked too. I was becoming too involved in the scenario, getting too deeply immersed in it, at the time and my conscious awareness was beginning to wane.
89  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: World Is A Simulation on: July 02, 2017, 21:36:33
* Instances of entities may appear. If there are trillions of entities, a program can simply use instances of one model or a class to create those trillions. This saves enormous amount of memory and computing but the result is that all those trillions of entities are exact clones. We have electrons, protons and all such entities here, that are identical in every way.
Some of these Entities could also be the computer's "repair crew". I have always believed we are being "micromanaged". If that is true, then I am sure there is some "hands on" tweaking needed from time to time. Computer programs do have their flaws from time to time.
 People report seeing "nuts and bolts" ships, but also some of these Entities that just seem to just appear and disappear, as if they are walking through a dimensional portal of some kind.

 What I love about this practice of Astral Projection is that we are learning what "They" already know or should I say "relearning" what we already know too. Yet they are "Masters" at their craft. We are learning how to traverse other realities and the multiverse like they do and on some level they are the ones guiding us to do that.

 From time to time I see things in people's posts that show me that they are being led to something greater. At the time they don't see it themselves. By "observing" here and other Astral related Forums, I can see who they are. I just wished they would see it earlier themselves. Then we could start combining our efforts and be able to discover and learn so much more.
 One day perhaps!  smiley

92  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: June 30, 2017, 23:43:36
 This morning I awoke, used the bathroom then went back to bed. I laid down on my back, which I rarely do (I am a side and stomach sleeper). I then preformed a "mental ping-ponging" motion. targeting left and right.  The ping ponging tactile feeling morphed into more of a full body rotation. I wanted to say here, that if your simple ping ponging tactile technique turns into any other kind of "tactile" feeling, go with that new feeling. Do not change it. Only start again with the ping ponging if you lose the feeling period.
 I accompanied it with counting to 200. Once I hit 200, I turned onto my side to sleep some more.

 Almost immediately I become aware of a strong warping forward. There was no climbing out of the body and I didn't feel any vibrations either. When my sight kicked in I saw I was flying into some kind of city. People were walking around and I went up to the first one that I saw there, a man and asked "Do you know where MJ is?". He said no. I thought about that and wondered why I asked that.  huh
 I then went around talking to and asking other people questions. Some answered, some didn't.
 After awhile of checking out the City and talking to the locals there, I went into a Café/Coffee Shop, sat down and just observed everyone around me. A young lady, probably 18-20 years of age came up, sat beside me and began rubbing on me. I looked at her and asked "Why are you doing that". She looked at me and said "to help you become more aware". It definitely did that, lol. Before that my awareness seemed to be fading.

 Sometimes when deep in a experience you will find that your awareness will fade quickly. That's because you have totally succumbed to or became a part of the scenario at hand. You need to keep a balance between knowing your asleep/consciously projecting right now or while "there", without totally becoming a part of scenario at hand. When you do learn to balance the 2 of them, you will find yourself in much longer experiences as well. At least consciously aware that is.
 This was much different then my usual LDs. I knew right away it was a OBE. In my LDs, I become aware in the middle of a full blown scenario that is in full blossom. I also see it first from a 3rd person point of view. In this recent experience I was in 1st person mode all the way. The thing that makes me classify it as a OBE is that I became aware of a actual exit from my physical body. In LDs I don't. Mind you they are all still "non physical/local states of consciousness" though. That's my way of defining whether it was a OBE or not. LDs are more like Phase session. The difference being you are completely consciously aware in a Phase session from beginning to end, just like a OBE. But a Phase session for me is not "normally" accompanied by any actual "exit symptoms". Once in awhile I do get exit symptoms while Phasing though.

 On another note. Recently a good friend of mine asked me why this is important to people and to me as well. I said because I have been shown that learning this will aid with coming changes. One of those changes being our/your own "final" transition from here to there (physical death).
 When that time comes, while others stand in line asleep, you will be fully awake and aware!  wink

Your first experience sounds really intense. Yikes.  shocked
Yes, that was a rather intense way of waking someone up!  rolleyes tongue

... albeit not in the way I was expecting (no surprises there then).
It never is, lol! I don't "expect" anymore. I just experience!  smiley

 My first intended consciously aware experience came after using the "candle staring" technique.

 I sat down and watched the flame for about 15 minutes. I then blew it out, closed my eyes and saw the imprint in my "screen" there. It faded after about 10 seconds. So I brought it back. That game of fade in/fade out went on for awhile until I noticed a vibration. There was also a strange sound like wind. It didn't take long until I felt I was in a actual Earthquake and the sound was so loud I could swear of Helicopter was landing on my roof, lol. I was hooked though! I couldn't wait to do it again!  smiley
 It was scary, but awesome at the same time.

 That definitely doesn't sound like a "failed OBE experience" to me. You got something positive out it. There was no "failure" there!  smiley cool

Congratulations Selski!  smiley
Last night I didn't quite reach full awareness, but knew something was going on. I remembered that the swinging was a potential effect of the ping-pong technique...and also recalled that I wasn't supposed to be in a 'screen' just yet. So like a numpty, I closed my eyes and waited for a shape to appear. The trouble is I opened my eyes back into the dream and got totally confused. Obviously lucidity was low and within a few seconds I'd lost it completely.

Another very small, but encouraging, experience. It's taught me that I must practise lucidity - that is the key to all these experiences.
Not only that, but I think it is teaching you not to "overthink" things to.

 I used the ping ponging upon awakening this morning to great success this morning as well.  cool

 I did find that if you try it tomorrow, you should switch up the directions. One thing I have found personally in this practice is that you do need to switch things up almost daily. I have many techniques that I find work. But the same one won't work for me repeatedly on a daily basis. Hence the need to switch things up.
 It's almost like the consciousness gets acclimated to whatever your normal technique is and for that reason, it bypasses the consciously aware part of the experience.   undecided huh

 Hello Scrispy and Welcome to the Astral Pulse!  smiley

 Good advise by the Lady above me ^

I haven't heard of Steve Jones - shall I look him up or not bother, lol.

 Don't bother. His info was good when I needed it. You are wayyy past that. The only thing of his I still use is his Binaural Beat MP3 that came with the program. it is one of the best I have ever used. It's funny they gave me a duplicate program to give to someone that wanted to use it too. I tried to give it away free to my friends that showed a bit of interest. But no one wanted it. That pretty well showed me that there "interest", was just a kind way of "humoring me".

Is your first experience here at the Pulse? I'd like to read it if you can find a link.
This is one of my first under my old name Lionheart here. I had officially joined sometime in 2011. But because my name Lionheart is no longer valid here, it took me awhile of going back in the Astral Pulse "abyss" to find any of my earlier posts.  I thought I had a message in the "Member's Forum" as well. But I couldn't find it. My post on Oct 9th 2012 pretty well explains my "NP" awakening.

I think my best purchase would be the earplugs. I use wax ones made by Quies and wear them every night (along with an eyemask). I've got a Really Old pair of headphones and may consider Bose if/when these bust. I'm reluctant to replace them if they still do the job. I also looked into light/sound machines back in the day but never got round to actually hitting 'buy'. If yours is sitting around gathering dust, chuck it my way!  wink Your illness sounds horrendous (I've just looked it up) and must be problematic when practising...well, when living day-to-day also. Where's the hug emoticon? ((hug))
It's kind of strange preparing for bed like that. I do my nightly ritual/mental intents, put my Sleep Mask on, insert the earplugs and I am off. No interruptions, until MJ squirms, which she does often, lol.
 My best LDs come when she has already gotten up out of bed to start the day. I go to sleep very late. Most nights around 2-4 am. I am a "night owl". I love the darkness, 3D or not!  cool

 It's funny how once in awhile the "ping pong" motion I am creating, all of a sudden becomes accompanied by the visual of a actual ball ping ponging back and forth. Sometimes with the table as well.

Works this way for me as well.
For me as well.

 Catmeow, I like your terminology "locked /into"!  cool The words "here we go again" themselves show anticipation and on some level even though we try to control our excitement, it sometimes still leaks through, thus killing the moment. 

 I find that is very important for me to keep the fact that I am in any experience, as a "afterthought". It doesn't matter whether it be through a LD/Phase or OBE session. I experience it first now, then question it later. This had led to some much longer experiences as well.

 When I first started becoming consciously aware in my Dreams first, I would I altered the whole scenario, what others would call, leaving the Dream to Astral Project. (At the time, I didn't think they were the same thing. That was due to some bad advise from some of the LD/Astral Projection books I had read)) But those experiences were very short. I wanted to be able to stay there longer, so I needed to adapt to what was occurring. I experimented with it and saw that becoming too lucid or aware of the fact that I was Dreaming or experiencing in a OBE/Phase session would kill that session. Thoughts like "Here we go were very detrimental to my practice. But I have to admit, even though I know better, I still catch myself once in awhile doing that still today. I will be patiently awaiting "the show" to begin and when it does the thought "here we go" comes into my mind and like Bugs Bunny says, "that's all folks", at least for that current session/simulation.  tongue

 It's kind of like you need to disengage the Human aspect of yourself or at the least, temporarily disengage the physical mindset itself.

. (Lumaza- you will appreciate this!)
I enjoyed everything about your adventure my friend!  cool Welcome back. Oh, and "Welcome back"!  smiley

 it seems like you created the "perfect storm". The fact that you were already tired to begin with, the "sleeping pill" that you took, plus the anticipation of your upcoming trip itself, created the perfect "Trifecta".

 I think the spontaneous visual shower experience is one of the most intense and shocking experience a person can have. You aren't attempting to do anything AP related. You suddenly close your eyes and a whole new World is just there. It stuns you. But once you gain your composure, you just observe it further.
 I have had many more experiences in my bathtub/shower now. Many of them have been initiated by me, as I use my bathtub now for my Phase/soak session. But before that, they were completely spontaneous and incredibly vivid right off the bat. Actually that's why this is so shocking. With Phasing or a OBE attempt it takes a while until a visual occurs. Normally it just fades in, then fades back out. But with this weird spontaneous shower thing, the area or World you are walking into is a complete, fully vivid scenario, instantly upon closing your eyes, just as it is in this physical realm here.
 Could water be some kind of "amplifier"? Water does have it's own frequency and so do we. You can't deny that water has a instant "calming effect".
