I used to work with him and I discovered he was doing something very harmful to people of which I reported (to stop him) and he started targeting me from then on. He's the type of person that if he get's offended once he'll never leave you alone. I'm sure he's doing the same thing to other people as well because it's his nature.

I know his type and people like that enjoy intimidation mostly because they are good at it. This does not however mean that he fully understands and may have no clue at all what he is doing on a non-physical level. But YOU do and you have given him the power to intimidate you both non-physically as well as physically.

You say he is after your secrets. You can foil (confuse and defuse) him by giving him exactly what he wants. Become an open book, just fill your self/book with so much information he'll never decipher it. Think about that and how you can accomplish it. I wish you success both with this and with your project.

Hi Sammie, I don't know how it is with anyone else but when I see the tunnel it gives me two options. I can either observe to see what comes through and presents itself or I can go through the tunnel till I get to the other side. Usually there will be one image or movement that will capture my attention and I focus on only that image ignoring anything else. When the images fade follow them.

"Your physical body is and should be the only thing going to sleep"

Yes, but when it comes to actually achieving this state isn't there a synchronicity between mind and body going to sleep? For example if my mind goes to sleep, my body doesn't stay awake for 40 minutes afterwards. If I stop my mind from going to sleep, it takes my body 40 minutes to go to sleep perhaps. If I become aware after falling asleep I am able to astral project.

If you are actively trying to project from a conscious state then this seems to be the idea. Basically this is about trance or meditation where 'sleep' is not the goal at all.

Quote
It therefore seems logical that putting the mind to sleep also puts the body to sleep. From there if you could restore your awareness immediately after falling asleep you could project. In this context focus to keep your mind awake is counter productive, you want to lower your awareness to the borderline, try to cross over and come back?

This is how I usually project. I fall asleep with the intent to become aware as I start dreaming. Once aware anything is possible such as simply observing the dream, interacting with the dream OR projecting elsewhere. I prefer this as it's simple and effective.

There are pluses and minuses to both and every once in a while either can happen out of the blue without any attempt. (And those are the best)

  I will say something else to people as a small warning. Be careful what you wish for. I practiced many a night to stay conscious into my dreams. I finally got what I wished for, but it was at the expense of completely destroying my regular lay down, close my eyes and fall asleep routine. Instead I would lie down, close my eyes and not be able to turn off for hours on end. It took quite a while to learn how to turn on and off the Tibetan Dream Yoga. For awhile it was automatic.

 I also found this with wanting to remember "all" of my nightly dreams. Once again, I got what I wanted, but at the expense of waking up after every single dream for nights on end. That got to be very exhausting.

I can back this up as I had to learn how to turn it all off to get a decent night's sleep. You don't want that, at least not long term.

I'm totally loving this thread catsmeow. I don't need validation anymore but still love reading them simply to know how it is with others. And just because 9 pages is so pitilin little (cheesy) I'll add one of my own.

I was in middle school when I jumped out of body and went home to see what mom was up to. She was hanging clothes on the line and she suddenly jumped and hollered. The teacher called my name so I jumped back in but kept checking on mom because she was sick. She was throwing up.

When I got home I ran to her room, she was in bed burning up with fever. Dad came home from work to rush her to the ER. I told him to tell the doctor she had been bitten by a spider. By that time mom was completely out of it so dad told the doctor what I said. Sure enough she had been bitten.

Mom asked me a few days later how I had known. I told her she knew and she laughed and said yes, she had a feeling.

Thank you Lamaza. I really appreciate you taking the time to chime in here. I know many do use these tools and much else besides. I have a few myself. Mine are old school bought back in the day and there is no mention anywhere on any of them about astral projection and such. Guess I'm dense because it took me this long to tie the two together. But when I did it was mind expanding and many pieces of the puzzle just fell into place.

You have directed me to a few videos and I will readily admit that some I watched, some I've already seen and some I have not watched yet. Just don't ask which ones are which, but I got something out of each one.

Yep, there are those that just want a magic pill or quick fix. That's the reason some of my responses are light. I figure if I give them just enough so they know it's attainable if they are serious they'll do some digging on their own and find their own path.

repeating suggestions to myself at night even without practice usually result in the dream fulfilling the suggestion or close to it. I try to keep the suggestion short so It's easier to repeat.
That's good funfire. Short simply suggestions is all that's needed. Also sticking to a single intent rather than aiming for doing everything at once. smiley

That's really WILD!

It sounds like a good method for a chronically sleep deprived society... as long as one can muster very strong and clear intent.

That's what I keep seeing. People posting how they come home from work or whatever and spend hours depriving themselves of a decent night's sleep and driving themselves crazy trying to accomplish something that is quite natural. The only difference between conscious and non-conscious projectors is awareness.

For heaven's sake (that's just an expression so don't go all bible on me). Just go to sleep with a conscious intent to project and remember your experiences. If it helps and falls within a persons belief structure - pray or meditate but still - go to sleep KNOWING it will work.

It still might take a few tries but it is lot less stressful.
486  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Why am i always falling asleep when i try to astral project? on: September 09, 2016, 02:34:05
It's usually a matter of focus.  If you lose your focus, your consciousness will drift off to normal sleep.

Exactly! But then you will wake up in a lucid dream without all that worrying about doing it right. Works for me and I don't spend hours trying to stay awake while falling asleep.

True Plasma, one size doesn't fit all. I'm sure many have used these but I don't see anyone using the terms when talking about techniques. I think they should as they are common terms and (I think) more basically understood.

title. every time i try to astral project i somehow fall asleep. anyone know how can i avoid falling asleep?

Old question but still worth answers.

Perhaps you are avoiding the very path you need to take to successfully project. We are not all the same and many of us project through lucid dreaming. Can't have a lucid dream, if you don't fall asleep. State your intent and go to sleep, it should happen naturally - sooner or later.
489  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Why Don't Projectors Make Use of... on: September 09, 2016, 01:37:37
I see a lot of helpful advice here but I am most curious as to why people aren't making use of techniques that are already tried and true. I'm talking about hypnosis and subliminal messaging. Both can be very effective at training the mind.

After all when people are reaching for that trance or meditative state they are essentially putting themselves in that perfect state for suggestion.

Simple suggestions like;
I am lucid when I dream
I project out of body easily
I am brave when I project

Could really make a difference for those struggling and experts alike.

For those who respond better to commands from authority these might work;
You are lucid when you dream
You project out of body easily
You are brave when you project

These should be the same or very similar to the same statements you make when you are laying trying to project and pull yourself out anyway. The difference being that with trance/hypnosis you are putting the statement in your subconscious where you will actually be when you project anyway.

So my suggestion is why don't projectors make use of hypnosis/subliminal messaging.
I think a discussion about this could be enlightening.

The vibrations seem to be one indicator that you are either starting to project or waking up. You can control this if you want by either relaxing back into your projection while remaining lucid or not OR you can notice the 'buzz' and wake up. It might take some practice but it is my thought that this happens 'normally' while we are fully asleep without being conscious.
491  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Oxidization levels affecting astral projection on: September 08, 2016, 00:17:10
I'm not even close to being vegan and yet I have no trouble projecting. A couple of years ago I was deathly ill and lived in the astral more than the physical for nearly two weeks.

I don't really know the science behind any of this so I tend to just look at the results. Since projecting is literally letting go of your physical form I really don't think your physical forms health or lack of is of any consequence.
492  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: September 07, 2016, 06:25:56
This is great Lumaza and should definitely help people AP. Lately my favorite way to AP is to imagine someone hugging me as we float in darkness. This way there isn't even a need to visually imagine anything. We just float there and I think how nice it is to just feel safe, warm, comforted. It usually only takes a few minutes for a scene to present itself and off I go.

But sometimes I just go to sleep which also works beautifully most of time. I'll just become aware already there. Like you I don't really try to control the scene. I tend to operate within whatever seems to be the guidelines that are in place. I find this to be far more interesting. Like for example, if I need to fly I WILL fly. I don't need to do anything. On the other hand if I try to fly when the scene doesn't call for it it's a failure.

I sometimes think trying to control a projection is why so many people have so much trouble.

Monday, September 5,  2016

Met a very impatient man. Apparently a natural calamity had left a number of people without homes. A local hotel had put them up for a night or two till they could make other arrangements. He was raising a fuss over not having decent beds and housekeeping not seeing to their needs. The hotel had put his family in a loft space and given them enough covers to make pallets on the floor.

He had not fully grasped the situation and basically was showing his butt and being very selfish. Calming him down by pointing how hard the hotel and staff were working to provide shelter and food (without profit) to large number of homeless people didn't take long.

I was going to suggest he and his family pitch in and help others less fortunate but I was pulled away to do some reading.

"This was a very long time ago..." As I was reading I could hear the book character actually saying the words. There were a couple of words that seemed like non-sense. One was liminery. I think that's right but never heard that word before.

Merriam-Webster says; French - Define liminary: placed at the beginning (as of a book) : introductory, preliminary..

How you know that we are here to experience love?

First I want to say for English not being your native language you are doing really well and I admire you for that.

As to your question I honestly do not know that we are here to experience just love. I do feel our time here is all about experience but if love is the only thing we strive for then how are we ever to understand those who don't have it. I think it's much bigger than all that.

We need to know not only love but fear, anguish, self-loathing, hatred, sadness - all of that. There is a time or likely will be a time when understanding any of the emotions might become a vital tool for any of us if it hasn't already.
497  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral World on: September 03, 2016, 05:24:14
We just so happen to be grid locked in this reality for reasons we will understand sooner or later down the line. The physical and non physical are just labels we throw on to tell apart our grid locked reality from the many others.

A reality is only as real as the value you give to it.

This deserves repeating!! Whoop! smiley

It's funny LightBeam how I used to always want all the answers and I wanted them right now and yesterday if possible. Now, it's the trip I enjoy. I'm still the same ol' me, always will be, eager, asinine, stubborn, stupid, brilliant, you name it. Now I just use those as tools. The only change has really only been one of perception. You're right about the excitement never going away. I like that. Guess we are both rather content.
499  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: Becoming profoundly content with ones self on: September 03, 2016, 04:45:25
I can see how being content could lead someone to feeling this way. That is IF you are thinking that being content means you have all you want and have no desire to continue or improve. But what if; you have come to accept yourself completely as you are with all your perfections and all your flaws? What if you have come to terms with how to best use your perfections and your flaws to continue on and achieve even greater? Would not that also be contentment?

Being content not that you have done your best but that your best is yet to come?

Take away my memories and all my perceptions and you might possibly leave in a perfect state of bliss.
500  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral World on: September 03, 2016, 03:48:49
There are infinite permutations of underlying data sources with different rule sets that we call "physical" but the rules don't make the reality, perception does.

We are in agreement. This is exactly what I meant. Both are real. But in the astral my body can not follow. In the physical it can. Different set of rules. Perception is all we really have and 'it' can go anywhere even if we can't physically see all the colors.

Imagine a rainbow through a crabs eyes = mind explosion.
