826  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Techniques for "waking up in a dream" on: February 03, 2016, 00:42:03
  These are all great suggestions. To add one more to them I would say to make sure that you "specify" the DTs (Dream Triggers) while you are logging your Dreams into your journal.

 I always log what I recall from my Dream(s). Then at the bottom of the entry I list all the DTs that were found within it or them. This really helps you to be fully aware of them the next time you find them in a Dream.

 But here's the thing though, this is where "balance" has to come into play otherwise you ill get too excited and the adventure will end then and there. You have to learn how "passively observe" you are in a Dream, but not that realization completely take over. It's very hard to do at first, but just like everything else in this practice in general, it gets easier as well.
827  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Overcoming incubus mode on: February 03, 2016, 00:26:50
I have noticed a pattern in my astral projections where almost every time I gain dream control I immediately use it to manifest dream sex. It is never much fun, I have read that astral sex can be amazing, but this is usually some kind of weak emulation without much real sensation.

I have come to feel like these inclinations are somehow holding me back from doing something more significant in my dream time. Any ideas on how to proceed?
Hey Thaomas.  On Sept 14th 2013 I made this post in the "Masturbation/Incubi and Succubi" thread while using my "old name" there. http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_psychic_and_paranormal/masturbationincubi_and_sucubi-t466.25.html

 The first step to overcoming and confronting this problem is realizing there is a problem to begin with. I went through this stage as well whereas "lust" was controlling my actions once I became consciously aware in a Dream or actually even a OBE from a SP episode would lead to lust as well. I found it strange because I am not a lustful person in "real" life here. But, I also saw it as a step forward. It really helped me to learn control over not only myself but also some of my "other realm" environments as well.

 Many times things that we deem as negative are actually really a blessing in disguise. The "other realms" and this physical realm as well, have some strange ways of teaching us important lessons in life in general.

 Hello Prinzesth89 and Welcome!  smiley

 It's always great to see another fellow traveler!

 In the beginning it is "very quick", almost like you are being shown a "sneak peek" or "Trailer" on what's to come. But you will learn how to navigate this new "area" and when you do you will find that your staying power will grow exponentially.

 Hello Substituteapple.

 What you have explained and described is what we here call "Phasing" You have learned how to shift your awareness to "another". That is the definition of Phasing in a nutshell!  wink

 ...and yes, many of us practice this here. Check out this thread here. The thread is loaded with other great info on "shifting" your awareness as well.
 http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/how_exactly_do_you_perform_the_phantom_wiggle_method-t44583.0.html

 Here is another thread that is found in the "Welcome to the Astral FAQ" subforum that describes Phasing in it's entirety.

 Hello Piper and Welcome!

 As Suzy said, your technique sounds great. Stay the course with it. Keep a journal of your progress no matter how small you think a new happening is, it's all known as a step in the right direction.

 This Forum here is loaded with all kinds of great info to help you experience the "other realms" consciously aware. Whether that be due to Phasing (which is known as a shift while consciously aware), a OBE (out of body experience, whereas you feel you are exiting your physical vessel) or a Lucid Dream (whereas you become consciously aware from a Dream state). They are all considered "non ordinary states of consciousness".

 Here is a sub Forum with some great Stickies to help you understand more. They are the threads in BOLD BLUE LETTER. Actually the Stickies in every Sub Forum here on the Astral Pulse are very good.
 http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness-b30.0/

 Lastly here is link to a thread that will show you not only how normal those "Signposts" that you experienced were, but also some more possible things that you may or may not experience in the future. Just remember though, you must handle your fear and that only way I know how to do that is by confronting it head on.

831  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Is this real? or are we fooling ourselves. on: January 30, 2016, 11:59:28
I have more examples that are proof enough to me that there is definately something to this and more than a dream per say.  It almost feels as if we are more real in an AP than in this world.  Our senses here seem so dumbed down as if they are so limited.  But when in AP they are fully accessible without restriction.  Sight isn't limited to what is in front of you.  Communication there doesn't seem to use words.. it's more automatic.  Almost like things are just known.  Telepathy.  Travel here is so limited as well.  But when there you just need think and you can go whereever.  I am still working on this part because I'm so conditioned in thinking you need to walk, use a car, plane, etc... 

Maybe the earth is just somewhere we go because it is unique.  It gives us more of a challenge.  There seem to be so many restrictions.  It's almost like a video game in that sense.  Maybe we come here because we are bored of being tapped into the relative ease on the other side.  I don't think I would be so into learning more and more about AP if I didn't think there was something to it.  It's too bad people don't have more knowledge about this sort of thing.  And too bad people get so scared of it and want to avoid it.  I just feel blessed to know that I'm not alone in this.
Excellent post Enigmatic!  smiley I especially enjoyed the quotes above.

 Once you learn how to navigate in the other realms you really get to see how incredible it is. 360 vision, telepathy, thought = action instantaneously, travel at the blink of an eye. We really get to see how many restrictions we do have in this current reality here on Earth in these physical vessels that we find ourselves occupying.

 As you say, "if only everyone could see this for themselves". Well someday they will. When they are ready to see, it will always be there to show them.  wink

 
832  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 30, 2016, 01:04:27
And the main purpose I'm here is to learn how to project, not because it is going to make me a better person, or give me a one up on everyone else, or bring me closer to the source, but because it's exciting and I want to feel good!
Perhaps "it has been decided" that I'm ready to explore outside the physical but I'm not aware of that. I don't feel special.
This isn't about "one upping anyone" If anything it actually teaches you how to control and tame your ego. There is no feeling special involve here. Like I said it's like learning anything else in life. Does a Guitarist feel special, do they feel they are better then everyone else? No they put in the effort, intent and focus to learn and now they and can play. Non ordinary states of consciousness are the same way. But what you learn will definitely change your mindset and view on what is and what isn't. It opens you up to a new way of thinking and that's why I believe that not everyone is ready to experience this at this moment in their current reality. It could change many things, your relationships with people in general, your occupation, all kinds of things. I and many others have seen this first hand.
833  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 29, 2016, 23:59:04
That's not what I'm trying to communicate. I don't really understand anything. That's why I've stopped telling people how I think they should spiritually progress.
That's good, you should never "tell" anyone how they should Spiritual progress. That's for them to learn themselves. That's why we came to this realm in this "physical form" in the first place.

Quote
But there's nowhere to go. No one can take anyone anywhere.
You are the one that takes yourself there. This is why we Astral Project. On some level it has been decided that we are ready to see and experience more than just this "physical realm". That we are ready to see "outside the box". That's what a shift in consciousness entails.

 I have said that everyone can learn how to create that shift, but it doesn't mean they will actually be successful with it. Many come to this Forum, they read what they can, try it a few times, fail, then quit. Others come here and use practice, patience and in the end they do persevere. It's not the "flavor of the day" to them. They realize this is a "lifetime" experience. They know there is no rush and that when they put in the work and effort, they will reap the rewards. But that's the same with anything in life that you truly put your intent and focus on.

835  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Slipping in and out of lucidity and control on: January 28, 2016, 20:55:03
I had my third Lucid dream last night. When I realized I was lucid I immediately started to look at textures on walls. I felt like that helped focus me. Then I would try and do things.
Trying to fly, I would just slowly lift up. Or I could jump from a building and come down gently but I could not control it fully.
I have no control over my environment.
Then something strange, I seemed to slip out of lucidity, and within the dream, I was trying to get back into lucidity, with onlookers commenting on what I was trying to do!

I'm excited because I feel like this is the beginning of things for me. I read what Lumaza said in the Tom Campbell thread:
 

Guess everyone walks they're own path with this stuff and for me it seems lucid dreaming is the beginning.

Anyhow, is there some techniques for more control other than just staring at walls? A direction I can go in?
Excellent Bluebird.  smiley You are learning how to ground yourself and navigate in these new realms. You should be excited. When  just beginning, most people will just notice they are Lucid. Then their excitement immediately ends their travels or adventure. But we see the same things with people when they first notice they are out of body or when they have their first conscious AP due to Phasing. It normally takes a while before they can control their emotions enough to learn how to either passively observe or as you have done "ground" yourself to the scenario at hand. You are doing great. Keep doing what you are doing!

 My 2011 3 night adventures involved night terrors, SP and LDs. I kind of got bombarded by a bit of everything during those episodes. But they didn't become regular events right away. That's where the "progression" that I was speaking about comes in.

 You are right though. Each one of does "walk our own path".

 You can practice being non physical on a daily basis. This helps you to learn control when you finally find yourself "there".

 Here's some links that will help you with that. Mind you, these are my own way, like you said above, "we walk our own paths". So, you can use these as guidelines, but try to "tweak" them or find a way that you are comfortable with yourself.

836  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 28, 2016, 20:01:47
 The last and rather important progression that I really notice is the difference that I have when I just close my eyes compared to what it is used to be like. Now it seems when I simply close my eyes that my attachment to my physical body is immediately gone and the sense of just "being" is automatic.

 It's really hard to explain that concept, other then the constant "entrainment" has shown me that the shift really is a simple "closing of the eyes" away. I'm sure many of you here understand what I mean about difference you may notice now when you just close your eyes to what it used to be like. No longer is there the mental chatter. Now it's just you are instantly focused elsewhere. Even the darkness there looks and feels different now. There is a immediate calming and serenity to be felt.  But it"s a thing that could get easily overlooked. I never really realized that until I was making a list of all the things I wanted to write about in a thread on "progression".

I'm trying to find as much insight as I can possibly can about it, what it wants, and why it wants it.
Hello my first thought was this is job for "Ghost Busters"!  grin

 But on a serious note, have you tried communicating with it? If not, then you should. Possibly it is showing itself to you because it feels you could help it in some way.

 To communicate with it, close you eyes and do a meditation with the intent to open a line of communication with it. Tell it that you know it's story and want to help in whatever way you can. Show no fear and it won't show violence. Use love and understanding instead. Then just await it's response. Perhaps nobody has ever attempted to help it before and it is angry because of that. It is obvious that it wishes to get our attention.

Tom doesn't seem to interact much on facebook these days.  I don't think I've seen an actual post from him in a very long time now.
Thank You, I didn't know that. Last I had heard a couple of years ago when I was on Facebook, Tom was very active.  

Quote
As for your question, I obviously can't answer for Tom... but...
In that video link I posted, one of the first things he talks about is the "intellectual" level vs the "being" level.  I know you understand the two concepts very well.  
Perhaps this is just some part of projection that is known to you on the intellectual level, yet hasn't made it entirely to your being level?
I have listened to that recent video 2 times now. 2 and half hours of a video really isn't a lot to me. I normally listen to 3-4 hours of  radio talk shows, like Coast to Coast or Midnight in the Desert at night now.
 The way I understood what he was saying about the "intellectual level" and the "being" levels were that these levels are experienced in further progression with this skill in general. First we go in with our current "mindset", we can call that the "intellectual", always needing to know why and how, then after awhile we kind of progress or evolve into the next level or next mindset of just allowing and "being. There seems to be all kinds of progressions that we will experience with "non ordinary states of consciousness", as Stanislav Grof would put it.

Quote
I can apply a bit of logic to this... the fact you experience projecting both ways (with separation and without), it reinforces the idea that the separation isn't required or you (or anyone really) would never be able to phase like we do.
Hmm, that is rather vague though. I enjoy Phasing. I had a period due to my "ailment" that made it almost impossible to do. I say almost impossible, because I learned where there is a will there is a way and I just had to find that "new way". But in the meantime my Lucid Dreams began to ramp up. I saw this as another form of progression. First there was the my 3 night experience back in 2011. That created the curiosity to learn more. Then came Phasing, then came me becoming aware of my Dreams, then came me becoming lucid in those Dreams and learning how to navigate those areas. Next came awakening in full SP and spontaneously exiting the body. I have experienced OBEs throughout my whole life, but I became aware only of the actual separation in the past when I was young and that scared me like nothing else. I didn't have any memory recall of where it led to. Now in one each of these "modes" of exploration I found all kinds of progressions as well. Soon I am going to be creating a actual thread on all of this. But at the time I am dealing with a very trying circumstance. My beloved is very sick and it's consuming all of my thoughts and energy right now.  

Quote
Do you only get the separation sensations when you awake in SP?  
Yes. When I first began to learn about Astral Projection, I put a lot of time and effort into attempting to physically exit my body. I had a couple of close calls, whereas I became aware of my room and things with my eyes closed. But I soon tired of that technique. Frank's posts really helped me to understand that I didn't need to exit anything, so did Tom's videos. I soon moved on to Phasing and never looked back.

 Like I said all of a sudden I would find myself awake as SP was just beginning. I then observed the entire cycle. I hear the Astral winds approaching, get the vibrations, then they stop and my legs begin to rise. The next thing I know I am rocketing down my hallway and out my patio window. Like I have said in the past here, my bedroom has windows in it, so I don't know why I keep going out of my room, down my hallway then out my patio window. I do not have any conscious intent while doing this, other then to observe what is occurring. I have no expectations, I just lie there and allow what's going to happen to happen. But, there is different "realm" per say, awaiting me on the other side of my patio window.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

 One last thing, the end of Tom's recent video from the link above has to do with a question and answer period. I would suggest that especially people new to Astral Projection listen to this part if you don't have the "time" to listen to the whole thing. It begins at 1:50:30.
839  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 27, 2016, 09:22:06
 Thank You for that link Xanth. I enjoy listening to all of Tom's videos.

 We have corresponded back and forth in the last 4 years, but when I asked this question, I never received any reply. I asked him "Why would I still experience a "full separation" while allowing Sleep Paralysis to peak, when I have already learned and practice successfully often the technique of Phasing. I used to completely buy in to his theories on non physical exploration and through Phasing I found I wasn't separating from anything. But then I started having and still do have what appears to be full OBEs, with the actual real feeling of a physical separation.

 That is the reason I have my doubts. I practice Phasing often, actually to the point of just being able to close my eyes sometimes and being "there". So I can't see why I still have to experience full body separations. During those I do not and I want to make sure this is understood, I never intend to go anywhere nor do I attempt to exit at all. I just awaken in SP and see it through. Then I feel separation occurring on it's own. He constantly states that people don't "need to or have to" separate anything. Then why am I still experiencing a separation?

 I wish I had Facebook so I could actually ask him there myself. But I had Facebook in the past and have no interest in opening up a account there again.

I remember when I was five years old, waking up one morning and seeing my mother working in the kitchen from the bed, but when I tried to stand up I realized that I'm actually sinking into the bed and inside of it, I could see the screws, metal rods and all. I was very afraid and then I woke up in my body, only to think it was a scary dream but when I saw my mother in the exact same position I knew it was not a dream.
Many people report having spontaneous OBEs as children, myself included.

 Hello Josh and Welcome!  smiley

 What you experienced is know as "exit symptoms" otherwise known as "signposts". They are completely normal and a sign that you are on the right track per say. Not everyone experiences them though and you yourself may find that next time, you don't experience them either or possibly they may be different then they were this time. This is also normal to this practice in general.

 Here is a link to a thread here that discusses this further: http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_out_of_body_experiences/exit_symptomssignposts-t46206.0.html

 When these occur, just passively observe them and stay the course. Once you get past them you will see that jumping all of these "hurdles" is well worth it and you will find that you have opened yourself up to a incredible new "reality"!
842  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Seeing People on: January 25, 2016, 09:52:10
That understanding hit home a little better when I started seeing people that weren't in my home, and people who didn't even exist in my everyday world.
..actually after many many experiences I have seen the same thing. I found myself in other homes that weren't mine, surrounded by a number of people I didn't know, in occupations and situations that I really knew nothing about. These circumstances all helped me come to the conclusion that I was experiencing a life or many lives in "parallel dimensions".

 All of this came through a gradual progression though. First came the conscious APs. Then came sporadic OBEs that normally were accompanied by Sleep Paralysis. Next came awakening after some kind of "information download" that only used only "symbols", none of which I could understand at least on my immediate conscious level. I can only say they are some kind of "Cuneiform". I have searched every form of Cuneiform known to man throughout History and nothing matches them. There are some that are close though. Next came night after night of LDs, whereas I witnessed different levels of progression in those as well. I began logging them and found many patterns were found in them. These repeated LDs are still occurring today. I have no idea what the next level of progression could or will actually be, but I am eagerly awaiting it to occur.

I think that's the problem I have with people like Tom Campbell or William Buhlman standing up and proclaiming the way. It tends to make people question the validity of their own experience.
I don't think you get as much out of your experience when you think it is "wrong" and someone else has the correct way to experience...if only you could experience things like that...
But see that's why Tom's book is called "My Big Toe". It's his own personal conclusions. He states often that "you" have to come to your own. He sees nothing wrong with being skeptical. All he does is describes and explains everything from what "he" has personally experienced. William seems to have more of a direct approach though.  But as I said, I respect what they have to say and definitely approve of their videos. I use their teachings and videos often as a "reference" links for new members here. Especially Tom's talks on fear, which is something that "must" be confronted to be able to "allow" a shift in consciousness to occur.

Quote
On the other hand, I think teachers are important and its not the message of the teacher I have a problem with, it the way people interpret the message, judge the message, then proclaim the importance of the message.

Everything is a teacher and everything has a message, and no one thing has any significance over another. It is happening and that is all.
I have listened to some other Authors that state it's basically their way or the highway. One that comes to mind is Dr. Bruce Goldberg. I have personally heard him say on a radio station state that his was "the only way". I didn't like that at all.

 I like to help to teach how to attain the "shift". There are many ways to do it. People can use my techniques or any other techniques from others to start with, but soon they will adapt to what works for them. You can find a number of them here on the Astral pulse in the "stickies" section of the sub forums. What you experience there is for "you" yourself to experience. This is the reason that I don't share my own adventures here. If I do, I normally use them as "examples" of what could be.

So recently I've been a bit inactive with "all this stuff" since I've traveled across to World to study and get a new experience, but today for some reason I started trying to make an energy ball with my hand for some reason.. Well I sat there for 10-15 minutes until it became very strong and both hands starting pulsating in a perfect rythm very visibly and it felt like there was a very strong energy between the hands keeping them apart but Close. Then all of a sudden I started seing a transparent Shell a bit around where I imagined and felt the energy ball I made!? It looked a bit like heat you can see on the roads in the summer but it was frozen in it's position? So I started filling the ball with hopes and stuff and then let it go.. Any thoughts? Im not really sure what I was doing or what I actually did or didn't do..
"Focused will and intent". You gotta love it!  smiley

 Many times I begin with a simple imagery of a "child's spinning top". I got that idea from Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie Inception. But soon the "spinning top" will morph into something else and I "allow" it to continue and just sit back and observe it. This can actually lead into a full blown projection/shift if you immerse yourself deep enough into it.

 I enjoy making energy balls as well though. That's actually the way I first introduce etheric energy movement to someone that wants to understand more about a shift in consciousness. Energy manipulation is very easy to do.
846  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 24, 2016, 00:19:25
In fact you don't need experiences at all. This is the state if is-ness.
That is why we need this "filter". We came here to experience and learn from those experiences. Could you imagine everyone and everything here being in the state of constant "is-ness". That's not why we incarnate in any one of the many realms we could find ourselves in.

 The state of "is-ness" that one will find themselves in would be the opportunity to finally assess all that was learned and experienced as the previous incarnated body.
 
847  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Tom Campbell on: January 24, 2016, 00:12:35
This is fascinating! I always thought whatever state of awareness I would be in, I would always feel the me...or the personality of me, underneath it all.
Well how then, did you know you were you?
When reading through my post above the thought came to my mind that I wonder if this is what is actually responsible for "possession". Could it be that a person from another reality is in conscious control of another person in another reality. I became I was me I guess because I was aware of being in a another body period. That's kind of hard to explain. But the people I saw, the place I was living, things like that were always different. Many times I found myself in life and death predicaments that this other me had gotten me into and it seemed like I was becoming aware at a very crucial time in the scenario.

Quote
And another epiphany I had when reading your post, is that, this sate of is-ness that is so rare, is our core experience while inhabiting an insect? After all, an ant body is not much of a vessel.

Could it be that an anthill is just a million enlightened souls digging in the dirt?
I think the ant in this case would also have this "filter", otherwise it wouldn't be able to have it's "ant" life experience. But I don't remember ever being an ant, so I really can't answer that question, lol.

Then by all means, worry about it. Do something about it. Perhaps in some years you will come to believe something else and worry about that. So your life becomes worrying, searching, and doing. Sounds like your not alone. Sounds like me!
That should say "Don't worry about it, instead do something about it". There is no need to worry. Your life is all about experiencing and reacting to said experiences. The way you react shows whether or not you received the true message from the experience or not.

 Some hear about Astral Projection and think "wow this would be cool to do". They put a weekend of work into it, see no results and move on to the next "flavor of the day". Others awaken to it and see it for all it can offer. They learn everything they can about and apply the time and effort that it takes to be successful with it and still others will go for the "full Monty". They will attempt to delve as deep as they can. They will learn how to be somewhat proficient in navigating the new realms they find themselves in. They will engage in grounding techniques to lengthen their own "other realm" experiences. They may even go as far as reaching out to teach others as many people on the Astral Pulse do. It all has to do with your current mindset and if you are willing and ready to "allow" this new way of thinking into your reality or not. Once you do though you open yourself up to extraordinary adventures. This is and always has been a personal Journey. This is the reason that we get so many different perceptions on what is "really" occurring from so many different people. A Scientist views it through the eyes of a Scientist. A Guru from the eyes of a Guru and so on. Robert Monroe perceived it in "frequencies". But his occupation involved frequencies and the understanding of them. Tom Campbell being a Physicist saw it through the eyes of a Physicist.

The core is your very existence itself. It has to be consciously aware or it can't exist. For the sense of individuality, a state of awareness unconnected to anything has to be accepted.
Szaxx your entire post was very good, as usual!  smiley

 I have come to a conclusion and this is my own personal opinion or understanding that what we experience seems to come through whatever vessel we find ourselves in at the moment. I think every one of these vessels has a mind that acts as a filter and that consciousness itself has to penetrate this filter as well. Once it does, it gets whatever programming/teachings that you have experienced during your lifetime here. But the fact that you are in essence pure consciousness itself is one of the things that this "filter" blocks. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to experience anything the way that you do here. You need to have some form of "amnesia" to be able to experience anything anew.

 I have become aware in my Dreams many times whereas in whatever one of the many Universes, aka Multiverses" I have found myself in, the personality that I had was completely different from my personality here. That would show me that my "mental conditioning" or let's say the way I was brought up or whatever I learned in that existence had to do completely with the way my "current" personality in that existence actually was. I know that sounds confusing, but like I said, this is what I have personally experienced myself and perhaps because I have written it here, some others people might understand this concept and have also experienced this as well.

 This only comes though when I am conscious of being in a "vessel" and it shows through the predicaments that I find myself in when I first become consciously aware in my Dreams. It also shows in where I live, the people I find myself surrounded by and all kinds of things. All of these circumstances being completely different from my current life in this reality.

 Then there comes the times when I become aware I am when I am just a singular point of consciousness. In these there is no need for a personality, because there is no actual "vessel" as in physical body of any form being used. The "core" as Szaxx put it doesn't show the characteristics of an incarnate body. It just "is". When you find yourself aware as this, you can't explain it in Human terms, because you aren't experiencing a Human or physical reality anymore. You don't really even find yourself in a place per say. You just "are". Terms like "is" and "just are" may not help people understand this further, but they are the only words that I can find that really explain it.  

 So I think our "filter" or mind per say, works just like a computer. We have seen computers being upgraded through the years, but we have also been witnessing that "upgrade" in the Human equation as well. Why does a insect not show the intelligence of a Human? It all has to do with the size and capability of the filter/computer and what their current "vessel" will be physically able to do. Are they conscious as well? Does every living thing have consciousness or is it more like is every either living or thing period consciousness itself? These things we will never know until one day we find ourselves again devoid of any kind of "vessel" and just "are" once more. I find it very difficult to stay in that mode through conscious projecting, lucid dreaming, OBEs, whatever form of shifting is being currently experienced at the moment for any length of time. But once you do experience even briefly, you know you just experienced something incredibly awesome and pretty well impossible to explain. We can only use "adjectives" to describe it.

 I don't think it's being experienced via NDEs though. I think the person that is having the NDE is still too close to their current physical live and it's mindset and conditioning, as in beliefs and things like that, to be able to experience what it's like to just "be" again. Sometimes their current mental conditioning and mindset in general follows them for a quite awhile before they finally "allow" a new mindset to take it's place. But with other people like Monks, Yogi's, etc that have been mentally conditioned to release the physical mindset, the transition to just "being" is easier to achieve. This is why I agree whole heartedly with William Buhlman's approach. Mentally condition yourself now so when the time comes you are prepared and can be able to "navigate" through what comes next.

Hi all, this morning I could feel I was traveling out of my body.   I was going fast and I was traveling for a while.   I thought I have to get out of my body and of course it wrecked it.   When I woke up I realised that I was already out of my body.   This happened about five times.   Was I being pulled out of my body or did my inner self decided to go out traveling.    Perhaps no one can give an answer as no one may know.   I used to think that my inner self comes out of my body by itself.   Now I am not sure.
Hey Suzy. It sounds like you became consciously aware just at the point that you were already exiting/shifting. The "warp speed" exit has been talked about here on the Astral Pulse before. It seems like you are sky rocketing upwards or forwards at a supersonic speed. Sometimes you can even see lights flashing by akin to what you may see when the Starship Enterprise goes into warp drive. Gene Roddenberry must have had his own consciously aware OBEs/shifts as well. His visual interpretations are done so well in all of his movies.
