To me the EIC Forum was kind of a advanced "Astral Pulse" Forum. I always wanted to have deeper conversations here and many times I attempted to jump start them. But as usual, they just disappeared into the Astral Pulse "Abyss". I guess people don't practice here like they use to. Must have more important things to do now. Many of the one's that I still I talk to that used to be avid practitioners have found themselves blocked for some reason. I see these blocks as being caused by other things bombarding their focus these days. I truly see that for some reason there is a designed effort by someone/some faction to actually stop people from looking within. Instead they want to be and control your entire world/reality.

 I find that focusing on simple shapes and colors creates spontaneous "mental associations" that can quickly become your new target of focus. The same occurs with simple directions like "Forward, Backwards, Left, Right and Up and Down". All those lead to the tactile feeling of motion as well.
 You need to practice it often though, so that it all becomes "second nature" to you.

I hear you Lumaza. I guess everyone either reaches that place where they want to really explore or not. I sometimes see signs of people detaching from their devices or trying to at least so even that 'flavor of the day' I think one day will no longer hold their attention. Wonder what will be next.

I kind of get it though, I was that way about taking pictures once. Then one day my kids told me just put down the camera and walk away. Haha, I did and found I much prefer truly experiencing their laughter and joy to having a few (too many) photos. I now rarely even think of my camera.

I'm actually glad you are back from the fair, been missing your interaction round here. Relax a while and catch up, talk later.

Hugs
Just the same, it was a great thread though. It had some very good replies in it!  smiley Things that really do have "relevance", especially now.

This is very interesting Kodemaster. I do wonder where you are at now with this.
Lol, I know you are trying to get conversations going again Nameless, but Kodemaster hasn't logged on since 2011 . On the other threads that you just recently replied to, "Visionquest, the name of the person that made that thread, hasn't been active since 2004 and "Melody" isn't even a member here anymore .

 You can see this by looking at their profile and what the date is beside the "Last Active" prompt.

Hi Plume, nice to see you here. You go and have fun, that's what it's all about lol.
For everyone else, you should see the masterpieces of art Plume creates, they're awe inspiring.
I second that Szaxx. Plume's "Masterpieces" are indeed "awe inspiring"!  shocked cool grin

grin still around... today is Saturday and yes it’s my nap in the morning and yes again all the symptoms were there  embarassed but I think I started to move out and felt frustrated that I could not see clearly, so I said clarity a few time. That brought me back right away  undecided a bit disappointed but thats ok. I had no intention  to do anything, had  good dreams after.
Anyway ... should be back next Saturday. 

See you ......
Hey Plume, you are doing great!  cool smiley Keep on keeping on!  wink
82  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Help: What's the best way to have great imagination/visualization skills? on: September 10, 2018, 06:02:56
Can someone please tell me a technique or a book or something?
Superman, you likely know what I am going to say, but I will say it anyway. I find that the two most powerful visual targets are simple geometric shapes and color. I used them in the beginning steps of my "Doorway" thread, before I began altering it to different techniques.
 http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/the_doorway-t46013.0.html
 
 What I enjoyed so much about focusing on simple colors and geometric shapes is that they "always" created some kind of mental trigger or visual. If I stayed with the image, it would soon morph into something anew. If I stayed with that scenario, I got to watch that evolve as well and then suddenly, I wasn't conscious of my physical body anymore and felt like I was "elsewhere". Hence, Astral projection 101!  grin
83  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Permanent Astral Topics! / Re: Articles on projection on: September 10, 2018, 05:55:04
Now if I could just get to that state of consciousness  sad
Just remember to be "passive" with your awareness. It's like a balancing act. Too aware, you awaken for real. Too "into it", you fall deeper and lose your conscious awareness of what it occurring.

 Passively observing is like being in the middle of a "see -saw". You need to find that sweet spot where absolute balance is, then you need to maintain it for a short period of time, unabated.
84  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: September 10, 2018, 05:49:03
I read today a paragraph that reminded me of your phase/soak method:

Itzhak Bentov was a mechanical engineer, inventor, author and mystic and explorer of cosmic consciousness.

He was able to combine his curious mind with a courageous soul to explore the unknown realms of cosmic consciousness with just wit and humor as his luggage. His plan was to publish some of his work as a comic strip instead of a cosmic trip! Bentov had two ways to prepare himself for his “trips,” which were not drug-induced.

Initially, like Archimedes, he used the “wet method” of soaking in a bathtub full of hot water, going into a “twilight zone” to get flashes or ideas that he scribbled down on a notepad. Later he favored the “drier method” of meditation and relaxed concentration. He wrote:

“I could attain remote reality by simply visualizing myself to be there, and there I was…”

Thank you for the share Baro-san!  cool smiley

 I have only been back a few days, from my State Fair vendor gig. I did immediately attempt to get some info on "Itzhak". First I looked for your tube videos and found this one here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReZt1YcFehQ

 Unfortunately, I was so tired, I only made it through about 15 mins of it before I found I had went to sleep. His part is very good. The lady after him, seems to be what lulled me to sleep. Her voice seems to be very relaxing, lol. Itzhak was hard to understand at first. So, I had to really focus on what he was saying. He likes to use graphs though. Those were interesting.

THIS is a wonderful topic and conversation for anyone who missed it or like a refresher.

As to the original topic my answer is no I don't. I have often had a mind split which is a phenomenal thing to have happen and very difficult to explain as words just aint enough. There are times when I can easily project with zero effort, it just happens and as has been said it is a very 'comfortable' feeling, there is no contention with this at all. But that particular energy does not always seem to be available. Where that energy comes from and how it's generated is currently beyond my understanding, I just accept it when it's available.

I know this though, if that particular energy were available 24/7 I doubt I would ever sleep. Way to fascinating!!

Thank you to all participants in this discussion and to the OP for starting it. Love
There seems to be a lot of "rehashing" of old topics here. It's like the way Hollywood just keeps remaking the same movie over and over again. Is there nothing new in the world of Astral Projection? I say "no".

 I just finished 12 days of vending at our State Fair, like I do every year and I have to say, focus is dead. People are so hooked to their phones and social media that they can't enjoy what they are doing and where they are doing it, at that moment in time.

 I can't tell you how many times while demonstrating the items that we sell, that someone put their phone, without asking, just so they could video what I was doing. We sell hand carved croaking frogs and various animal/musical instruments, that MJ and I design. We have been vendors there for 16 years now and every year I see that the ability to focus on one thing alone, is getting worse.

 I have spoken to others that teach AP as well and they are finding the same thing. There are many more interested in this practice, which is good. Unfortunately many also latch on because it's the "flavor of the day" or they think it might be cool to "try it". Unfortunately, their lack of "sustained" focus and general "staying" power, leads to their failure.

It’s a kind of re-orientation test, a quick one, to see if you recognize where you are; and if you are successful, as you were, then it is ended.

Tests, quests and challenges! Not only do we face them here in the physical, but they are also the chosen form of training and teaching in the NP as well.

Sammie, I send my condolences as well. For the last few weeks our circle here also has been involved in life's trials and tribulations.
88  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: August 12, 2018, 12:45:36
 Since my targeting of this Park scenario seems to create some very vivid experiences lately, I wanted to share today's as well,

 I began relaxing into the water for my Phase/soak session. I did a quick progressive relaxation tech, to relieve some nagging shoulder issues I had, then kind of lost myself in thought for a few minutes.

 When I snapped out of that, I began to target the Park. Tis time, the bridge was a paved cement one. There were two lanes and a yellow road divider. On the right hand side was a "pedestrian" bridge crossing area. This area was screened/fenced in and there were a number of people walking in this area. They all seemed like "Zombies" though. It wasn't there actually physical look, it was the lack of emotion or any kind of facial response, conversation, etc.

 It was a long walk. Once I finally got across the bridge, I saw a very vibrant full of life park scene. The people that were walking on the bridge were now involved in some kind of fun activity in this park. There was people throwing Frisbee's. a few enjoying a group volley with a volleyball. There was people swinging, chatting with others, happiness everywhere. Once in awhile, I saw a small group of people just materialize, like they had walked in through some kind of invisible Portal. They would then walk up to a person in the Park, talk with them, hugging etc. for a bit, then would turn around and walk back to the walkway and everyone in the party would then disappear into this invisible void again. I watched this for awhile and kind of understood it as the family members of a transitioned soul, coming for them.

 There also seemed to be some kind of "Counsellors" or some kind of control team there. They were the ones sitting on the park benches and only got up when needed. I saw a few of the people that made it across the bridge, lose their mind, freak out and go into a panic. That's when the Counselors or what I saw as the "Recovery Team" move into action. I observed this for quite a while, then returned my focus back to my physical self and ended the session.

 Today in the park, everyone I saw had a Human physical form. I didn't see any "Others", I like to call them, as in alien forms.

 I have been questioned by people here via PMs, how I keep such a lock on and how I can keep a scene going for such a long period of time. Many people that experience Astral projections, tell how it is such a brief experience. My answer is always "Become a good observer". Just watch everything for now. You don't need to control everything all the time. Most of these areas aren't centered around just you. You also need to learn to control your fears, your ego, your lust and any other "vanities" you have. That's quite a load right there. At the moment though, you are just "there" observing.
89  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: August 12, 2018, 12:22:25
Maybe those changes are reflections of your subconscious being recently touched by negative emotions, caused by events in your life.
That could be. But though I was concerned, I still understand the reason for the recent calamity that hit our lives here. That understanding is what tames any negative emotions.

First time I quote myself here, lol.  grin

 I wanted to add to this that maybe someone that has a Facebook account can "friend" him and give him a invite to stop by once in awhile. I know he is on that thing. He is also active in one of the Astral related "groups" that they have there.
91  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: August 11, 2018, 13:13:11
 In my last couple of daily Phase/soak sessions, I have perceived the Park in different ways.

 A few days ago while targeting it, I found the bridge to be very rickety and run down. When I saw the Park, I saw that the area was different. It was the same Park, but it seemed like it lost it's grooming. Tall grass completely blocked out much of it. It looked like no one had attended this area for years. I saw the benches were still there though. They also looked run down and ragged.

 So, I went to the task of "Caretaker" and began to clean it up. I knew for some reason that I had to use somewhat of a "physical ruleset" to make the changes. So, I began with a simple lawnmower and watched as other crews joined in the mass clean-up. It took awhile to do, but we got it back to the way I was used to seeing it. I figured this to be some kind of test and when I finally ended the session, I found that the water in my bath was bordering on luke warm. I must have been in that "projection" for over a hour. I enjoyed it though.

 In today's session, I found the bridge to be the challenge. I began walking across it and found that the further I got, the weaker it got, until there was no boards at all and I felt like I was walking on air. I normally experience my Phase sessions as a simple point of consciousness with no need for a physical vessel. But for some reason, it's not that way when I target the "Park". Why? I have no idea. When I walk, I feel each step and the motion of walking as well. As a point of consciousness, the sense of movement is much more smooth and fluid.

 Casey, I started to follow you when I saw that in a way, your Journey was mirroring mine. I had my "Awakening" back in 2011 after a really bizarre 3 day event and have never looked back since. It changed me in many ways.

 I have been searching for people anywhere I can that understand what I and many others have been through. There have been a few people here on the Astral Pulse and other people like Whitley Strieber, that describe it to a "T".
97  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Re: Activating the Capacity for Using Crystals as Communication Devices on: August 11, 2018, 07:04:23
 I work with Crystals and their unique "energies" as well, but in a different way from you Casey.

 Mine is using them to create what I call "Crystal Amplifiers". Mine are used more as focus targets. Once a person owns one of my pieces, I have a "link" to aiding them if needed. ...but, it is the Crystals I use that basically choose the design I create. I see those designs in a daily Phase/soak that I do. I then exit the tub and write down what I saw and attempt to create it at nighttime.

 Casey, I have followed you through the years on via your posts on Forums, (still do today) and your tube channels. Even years ago when you were videoing while living/staying in your car. That was a few years back.
  I don't do Facebook and I am not a youtube member either. So, I haven't had the means to comment on them. But I see that we both share that special kind of "Otherworld contact".

smiley Allo Sammie,
I have to post here and say , well just say hi  grin  and say how interesting this thread is  rolleyes I have a thing about wings and feathers, could be why I notice your bird experience. I am also curious about the position of wings and their meaning. I am a sculptor and feather is what I specialize now. If you ever find any information on the reason for the position of wings have, let me know. I tried but no success yet.
I just registered here this week and need to write some intro soon but my dilemma is how to post photos, I will be really sad if I can’t do this.
Also the formation of the birds in a circle would be very meaningful and where you felt your position is.
Talk later more on birds subjects if you like.
I love having conversations with like mind people , I use to be on the EIC and it vanishes for reason that are understandable ,  I am just getting over it but boy oh boy , I can’t believe how attached I was. Lucky me I have some friends here rescuing me from being suddenly propelled in the void and finding an other place to interact with explorers.
See you ...  wink
