Hi Lee, welcome. Looking forward to reading about your experiences.

Think of your body as a car with you in the driver's seat. You are the driver not the car. If you crash the car you will no longer need to put oil in the engine, water in the radiator or air in the tires. You can walk, find a different form of transportation or buy another car, the choice is yours. Without your body you don't need lungs.

Intense, You had quite the experience, maybe you will learn more in time. I just did a google search on the images - luddite. I saw some more images and they set off bells for me. Going to do some simple research and see if I can figure out why.

Oh wow, I envy you. I haven't heard astral music in forever. I think perhaps gifted artists sometimes channel music whether they know it or not. Love Yanni.

Very well said Xanth. I don't feel a need to add anything. Perfect.

I actually never heard sound either or I didn't used to. It was all telepathic or transmitted differently to sound but there definitely was no sound ever for me till I realized this.

It's actually quite funny now. I was in the middle of an np/lucid dream and my mentor was talking. I was totally getting everything he was saying but I guess that is the first time I realized the lips weren't really moving and there was absolutely no sound, just a perception of sound.

After that I thought about it a bit and later just asked for sound before going to bed or as I went to bed. Foolish me, I thought if I could actually hear the words being spoken I would have a quote or two to remember. Nope, doesn't work that way but my ears have certainly been opened.

The only exception for me was also the music. I described it one time as sounding like the conscious of the entire universe was singing in harmoney or something like that. THAT sound I clearly heard in my head and with my ears. Used to wake to every morning when I was a kid.
108  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Not wanting to come back and feeling bad on: December 19, 2016, 07:57:59
I guess anything is possible but it would be impossible to address this without talking to the people you refer to for further clarification of what they actually meant.

So just to answer you, a guide is not necessary. You can learn on your own and you will always return safe and sound. Perhaps changed or bearing new views or questions about existence but you will return unharmed.
109  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: how close am I? on: December 14, 2016, 23:09:54
You are very close, you already know this. Next time you do this relax into it and just let it happen. Ask you 'inner guide' to help, you don't even need to know who that is just trust your feelings.
110  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: What I think about consciousness in relation to this reality. on: December 14, 2016, 09:50:35
Hi Wi11iam, I don't have anything to add here as at this moment in time my own thoughts and ideas are all over the place. But I do want you to know how much I am getting out of this conversation between you and ST. Thank you.
111  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: No astral sight on: December 13, 2016, 19:55:13
Before you attempt projection do you have a clear intent? If you have a goal stating it before hand and asking for help with that will help. If you are trying to project and that is your only goal that could account for your lack of sight.
112  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Child Mind = Quiet Mind + Discerning Mind = Lucid Dreaming Mind on: December 08, 2016, 21:15:41
This is really well thought out. I totally agree with having a child-like mindset. There is one thing I would add to this. Children actually spend their days living, that is moving, being in the here and now physical, engaged and I think all that engagement gives them a boost in the NP as in a lucid state there is always something for the child mind to work with.

Lack of physical engagement doesn't leave much for an adult to work with. I'm not saying adults aren't active but that they have a more laid back seen it done it attitude.
113  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Anxiety? New awareness? on: November 30, 2016, 19:42:03
That was quite an experience seeing your daughter. I call this remote viewing but others may have different thoughts. Premonitions, remote viewing and visions are all wonderful talents, I posses those too to varying degrees depending on what is going on in my own life. Use that gift, don't be afraid of it.

As to the conspiracy theories I think it best to take those with a few grains of salt. After all it wouldn't be very beneficial to wipe out most of humanity. Who would be left to do the dirty work and the heavy lifting? I've heard/read a lot about the 'one world government', most of it on the conspiracy side. Gee, really? That's my response because honestly shouldn't we be one world and shouldn't our governments pull together to make this one big diverse world rather a bunch of little countries all fighting over who's the boss. People don't like change but change is gonna happen, it always does.

I like what Szaxx wrote to you. I would add that there are also "inner or non-physical" influences. Some have pointed to these as past lives or the soul, but my sense is that the non-physical energies influencing us are much more complex than what we traditionally accept as a "soul". This is why I have accepted the nomenclature of "complex being". Frank DeMarco's books (Rita's World I and II) discuss this.

Recently (last Monday) guidance gave me a response to a question (a frustration) that I had ... I was talking rather boldly to them as I sensed that I was being laughed at or made fun of (which I guess is to be expected when I get out of alignment ... as I was) ... but the metaphor that they gave me was that 'I am the captain of my own mystery ship'. I loved this ... because there is always an element of mystery ... in us ... in our collective group dynamics ... in the Universe.

Finally, I can offer an affirmation or balm for your questioning and 'problem focus' on this thread ... "The better I feel the more allow" ... so look for things that make you feel good. If this thread makes you feel good, then you are already on your way.  grin

Religion is man-made ... it is a "physically manifested" creation. However, it certainly is awkward and confusing that religion is often man's attempt to focus what is referred to here as "non-physical". This makes the discussion about religion rather prickly, and this is why beliefs often become "gooey glue" with us getting stuck in a particular thought or thought pattern.

Complex definitely describes us. I actually like that you were being bold with your guidance. I do that as well though not often. Maybe not often enough. I'm trying to have a more positive outlook as lately I've been really feeling negative vibes.

Love that quote Lumaza, it fits beautifully. smiley

As to the religion, I definitely do not want a religious discussion. I think we are all past that mostly. What I am looking for though is that I do not think religion is the problem or ever has been sooo... what is the problem that created this symptom.  In other words what is it about this physical form that makes any of us past or present believe we need these beliefs (whatever they are) in the first place.

Where does that need come from? It's okay if no one wants to touch this. I've no idea what more I could add myself. Just my thoughts spinning.
117  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Nameless Thoughts, Discussions and Ramblings on: November 21, 2016, 20:27:11
And... this all leads to my next eye-opening thought (at least for me).

Religion (old or new) is NOT the problem - It is the SYMPTOM. So how do we identify and treat the problem?
118  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Nameless Thoughts, Discussions and Ramblings on: November 21, 2016, 20:24:10
I was interested in your reply ST. You are helping me clarify my own thoughts and how I communicate those. We are trapped by our own beliefs not by the system itself. Seems the entire physical human race suffers from a serious lack of self-esteem. Self-knowledge is there but it is shut out due to our physical form.

The mental experiences can be amazing as well as confusing. It's hard to imagine being an emotion from the physical world viewpoint yet it's part of the mental environments that sits naturally in place.
You may not have to 'get out' but you certainly need to 'get in' to comprehend the basics of the mental and the more involved you reach the depth becomes inaccessible as our minds are not ready for this.

Yes. it is confusing and once again I find myself on a slow climb uphill as this is the area that currently draws me. Unlike the RTZ experiences in the mental I am as completely there as I am here. There is no separation more like an extension. Thank you for this Szaxx.

Congratulations Sam, you had an awesome experience proving that patience and practice do pay off. Remember what you learned and keep doing that. Seems like you finally were able to internalize one of the keys to success and that is trusting yourself. smiley
121  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Nameless Thoughts, Discussions and Ramblings on: November 20, 2016, 22:09:05
I don't think we can escape having a belief system. What matters is what those beliefs are. Even the 'others' have beliefs. Moving societies through those systems is progress however small.
122  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Nameless Thoughts, Discussions and Ramblings on: November 20, 2016, 22:00:35
Phil, now you're talking about the other side to this coin and that is where those of us who 'know' have our work cut out for us. It's like a sieve with tiny tiny holes where only a few can escape but the more that wiggle through the more will be able to as the holes get stretched bigger and bigger.

Now is probably the first time in human history since the coming of set belief systems that people are finally beginning to let go of those belief systems and allow themselves to just be. It's a start.

I'll be interested in ST's reply to this.
123  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Nameless Thoughts, Discussions and Ramblings on: November 20, 2016, 21:49:00
I just cant get enough of experiencing different adventures no matter where I am. I am beginning to think that my brain is producing way too much dopamine, because most of the time I am in a bubbly state of happiness and joy. For the record, I do not use any drugs natural or synthetic. I am against brain function altering substances. But that's another issue.
Anyway, I noticed that this state of heightened excitement about existence, exploration and adventures started with the AP experiences. When I realized that there are absolutely no limits to existence, a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I felt completely free and powerful. And it wasn't just faith, it was evidence from first hand experiences. That's why I value every experience I have at any level. Since then, actually my excitement about living here has increased.
There are many definitions of what mental state is. If you are referring to the "highest heaven", yes, it would be nice...if you can get there Smiley. But I think, if I stay too long where there is nothing else to learn, I may get bored. Maybe that's my human nature speaking, the need to explore more and more and more just for the thrill of seeing new things. If you wish, wherever you are, you can stop and experience stillness and bliss, rest, and then hit the road again. It's a matter of what makes each of us happy.

LightBeam that is lovely. Although I was not referring to the 'highest heaven' I understand what you are saying about human nature and that need to keep growing, learning, experiencing. Knowing this life as we generally 'know it' is not all there is is certainly an awesome gift to realize.

  Most people understand the term OBE as being "only" a out of body experience. They think of Phasing as "day Dreaming" and we already know what they think Dreaming is. So, their initial goal is to actually have a OBE in the true sense of the term.  Their first experience with projection may have come through a SP experience or they might have just all of a sudden become consciously aware while sleeping that they were already out of their body and now they want to learn how to repeat it consciously again.

Sometimes it's hard to remember that not everyone has had these experiences so when they suddenly do of course they would/might be left wanting to know more. Thanks for the reality check. I forget sometimes not everyone has lived with this pretty much forever.

It used to take me anywhere from a hour-hour and half to have a OBE, whereas I found myself in the RTZ. When I spontaneously awoke in SP, I had to not only gain my bearings quite quickly, but also to control my fears and realize exactly what was going on. I don't care who you are, when you first awaken in full SP, it is quite a shock to the system. Sure, you soon realize what is happening and why. But the initial shock is still there.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Those changing vibes can wreak havoc on everything you thought you knew. Thank you Lumaza for your input, I love how you bring me down to earth (so to speak).

I will "ramble" that out of body experiences are not why we are here. Being more non-physical is not the goal. The goal is to temporarily be physical - as an extension of the broader, non-physical part of ourselves. Then we "croak" and we are completely non-physical, which is then more purposeful, because we are slightly different than before we came here.

I like Frank DeMarco's recently discovered term for this. We are "complex beings".

I would hold forth that if someone is interested (e.g., desire) in projection or OBE's, then that can be one of the purposes or reasons that they are here - to explore their multi-dimensionality from a physical perspective. However, the primary reason to be here is not to redeem, to learn, etc. It is most simply to enjoy the expansion of consciousness into physical reality. I do think that many in the OBE community overlook these points.

I understand what you are saying about levels (e.g., focuses) but that is all conceptual for me. When it comes to levels beyond the astral, I cannot speak from conscious experience. So, I am leaving your primary question to someone like Szaxx, EV, Lumaza and others with that experience.

Thank you ST, your input is always so spot-on and valuable. What you have said here does resonate in my own thoughts as well. Living in the here and now I feel is the true challenge. I think you may have hit on the crux of this whole thought for me, that is that learning to do what we already know how to do from a physical reality could certainly be a part of the fascination.

Thank you for that.
