Read though your topic... Looks like it was a pretty good discussion. Thanks for sharing.

Good to see, i was not the only one who thought to start a post on it LOL!!

Almost all movies that show astral projection some glorified form of astral projection, like the movie version of it. I like some of them because they are funny or entertaining, not not because they are like real life astral projection.

Here are the ones that I am most familiar with.

Ace Ventura: When nature calls.

I agree, I have seen it in Hollywood as well but this one seemed to actually explain in some detail. The Ace Ventura and Beverly Hills Ninja it almost making more of a joke of the whole process I found.

have you seen Dr. Strange.

This is just a short clip of it, it continues on more in the movie.

Might be worth watching a portion of the movie?

i am new so i may be totalu out to lunch but just wanted to get others thoughts.

Has anyone ever watched the new Dr. Strange? I have always enjoyed MARVEL comics and movies but was never really in to Dr. Strange.

Anyways; myself, the wife, and my two kids sat down to watch it the other night.

This was a really great movie and I think there is some good information if the script/story directly related to AP, which is pretty much his whole super power.

It starting getting my 8 year old son asking allot of question in regards to AP'ing. I need to watch it again as I believe there is more information I can get from this movie.

If you have seen it please let me know your thoughts on the movie. If you have not seen it... it may be worth a watch?

Your first experience as stated the black and the buzzing.

Sounds like it would have equated to being in what I have heard referred to as "The Black Void". Did you get the feeling that the Blackness went on forever?

In other words, if you are in your bedroom; it is pitch black, you are aware that you have four walls, that make up that room. You have a feeling of how large the room is, correct?

In the "Black Void" you feel as if you are somewhere completely different and the blackness seems to go on indefinitely. Did you notice a change in thought pattern of such? 

I fond that once in this state my thoughts / mind seemed to be extremely clear and precise. Any tiredness / fuzziness in my mind was instantaneously GONE once in the void state. I have been in this state 3 times now and I really enjoy it. There are lots of answers there; you can look deep inside "yourself", if that makes sense?

Next time just be in the moment and accept what is happening as truth, it is a great place to be... you will enjoy it.

He dose have great videos and is extremely positive. I have been following him for about 6 months now.
He has helped explain a few things for me so far.

Tanks for sharing for others to see.

Are there any other good you tube channels on AP that you would recommend? The community on YouTube seem fairly small at this point still.

SCHMUSTIN-

Okay, so being a dad with two kids probably rules out the potential benefits of a quiet afternoon nap, lol.

As an aside, are you keeping a dream journal of roughly a weekly nature?...this helps to keep your NP mind concentrated on the goal.

The WBTB technique may require some modification and is still prone to some randomness: How long you sleep and how long you stay up afterward and what level of activity you maintain...those kinds of things. I find that when I set an alarm after 3 or 4 hours, that I need to be awake for at least 45 minutes to an hour, otherwise I too easily sink back into deep sleep (this may also involve REM cycles and positioning/timing so I just cannot absolutely say). Also the level of activity after the initial sleep period is important: it should be what I call 'mildly active'...don't do weightlifting and don't go for a midnight jog...fold some clothes, putter around the house and then read a book for thirty minutes...keep it relatively mild...then go back to bed and observe yourself as you slide back into sleep; there you may find an opportunity. If the exit sensations appear then just 'allow and follow'.

Intent is likely the most important concept we can discuss here. Szaxx can project within a few minutes of silence and concentration while sitting in his car during a lunch break...jeez... That is the ability to disassociate and INTENT. I can project whenever I happen to recognize that special set of circumstances (relaxation/tiredness/disconnection) happens for me. Middle of the night/early morning/naptime... I can't make that moment happen (yet) like Szaxx can, but I damn sure recognize when it occurs...and I take advantage of it. And a big part of that is recognizing when to apply your Intent. It is like being a sniper and taking the shot when you have it.

You already have an understanding of, or a relationship to Intent. It is involved within every decision and action you take in Physical Reality. It's just that your awareness of Intent is more present at some times than at other times. Some ad guru for Nike summed it up in a beautifully simplistic immortal line- JUST DO IT!

That phrase applies to both Physical Reality and Non-Physical Reality.

The discussion of Intent is one for a whole separate thread...a lot of people I would like to hear chime in on that one...

Intent has levels of intensity...it signifies a degree of determination, willingness...it reaches towards absoluteness.

How far would you risk yourself to rescue me from a raging flood? You barely know me. How about your children? Two different degrees of 'Intent' at work here...not the emotion (although that is a component), not the rational thinking (could I die in the process?)...if it is your kids, you just DO IT...that is one essence of Intent...

With regard to OBE practice, do you make a nightly practice of affirmations to experience and remember your dreams/OBES? Do you write down bits of memories and dreams every morning? Do you remind yourself during the day to be aware and to remember your nighttime excursions? (this is a general advice to everyone,lol)

In the Non-Physical Realms, 'Intent' takes on an even greater importance. It is literally your sole means of motivation/locomotion. If you have no idea of where to go, or whom to see...then you stall out...you go no farther.

Even with 'some' intent...if it is half-assed and weak...you get bumped out. Your Intent has to be strong and clear.

And then again, even if your Intent is strong and clear...if it is mis-directed, then it is practically worthless...as in my Back to School adventure.



EV,

Thank you for the post. Very informative & brought a few question I had into the light!
35  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Making Progress / New sensation? on: March 05, 2017, 19:47:18
One Logic Question For Someone Who Has Children/Kids Under His/Her Care: żAre You Ready And Willing To Die And Leave Your Children If For Some Reason Something Happens While In A Lucid Dream /Astral Projection /Out Of The Body Experience /OBE? (Physical Death is something that is to be Accepted as a Reality in Life as well as a Possibility while performing Altered States of Consciousness, as it is necessary to be able to Take the Risks of Accessing those UNKNOWN places/locations/worlds/realms and interacting with UNKNOWN persons/beings in UNKNOWN situations).

Is physical death a real risk/possibility while OOB? I have never heard of this?
36  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Making Progress / New sensation? on: March 04, 2017, 20:55:02
You are welcome,

Simply laying down and doing a relaxation/meditation or exit technique is good for exploring the possible range of exit sensations and exercising your mind and energy body...but, it has a low success rate of actual exit/transition for the majority of us, myself included. That's not to say it can't be done but natural talent or years of practice may figure in. My point is that a combination of techniques may be helpful.

A few questions-

1- Have you tried a WakeBackToBed technique? Like setting an alarm for three or four hours into your normal sleep cycle, being mildly active for an hour, then laying back down and trying for separation as you fall back to sleep? If you are not successful at a separation and fall asleep, often you can be rewarded with a second wake-up or a lucid dream which gives you a different opportunity at a NPR experience.

2- Or, you can do a similar WBTB tech and wake up a couple hours before your normal daily waking time.

3- Daytime naps can produce wildly unexpected and wondrous things.

You certainly have demonstrated that you have the proper 'Intent' to have an OBE/Phasing; I am just wondering if, like a loaded and cocked gun, you have it pointed in the right direction. Difficulty in making progress at this point can be particularly frustrating; each of us seems to get stuck initially by different but very small things. You are getting a good variety of exit signs and symptoms, energy body sensations, etc. So my next questions become timing and Intent.

4- Regarding 'Intent', it can be as simple as asking for permission to do this and giving yourself permission to do this. Do you lay down to sleep every night and consciously make a mental statement to yourself and to the Universe that you wish to have an OBE? That you understand that it is safe? That you are asking for guidance and assistance in this endeavor? This is a very important step for at least a few reasons. You will find that functioning successfully in the NPR depends heavily on an understanding of the importance and use of Intent.

5- Intent is everything; timing is a close second...

EV,

In response, to your questions...

1) No i have not tried the WBTB. Do people see good results for this. Possible I should try this tonite? I will post tomorrow on how it went.

2) I will try waking up 2 to 3 hours after I go to bed. As in question 1 above.

3) I have tried daytime naps a couple times but with work and two kids this can be a real challenge LOL. Feel I need to mention that the 2 or 3 times I tried the day time OOB I did not have much results. I don't think I was tired enough.

I do believe/feel I am making progress; as I am laying there I do remind myself what I want to accomplish and that fear of the unknowing is turned in to minor excitement at this point for me. I feel that the universe is going to guide me as far as i need ot go and that when I am ready to experience more, i will. If that makes sence?

4) Yes, I believe I do this. When I am laying there I am more of asking the universe for guidance; to help me through the process. There has been occasions where I have ask and it felt like someone/thing has said OK you are ready for the next step. Other times it felt as if I had gone far enough and it was time to wake up.

5) Would you mind going into intent and timing a bit more. I believe I know what you are talking about but... I don't know, what I don't know, right?
37  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Making Progress / New sensation? on: March 03, 2017, 16:02:30
What Nameless said is particularly true- that current phenomena are a bit new and unpredictable...many of us seem to be encountering new and varied experiences lately.

SCHMUSTIN,  your set of sensations is well described in Lumaza's thread on Symptoms and Signposts, in this same forum...it is a good variety indicating proximity to an exit. You need to simply allow the direction to develop and "go with the flow"...this also includes some testing on "fear" and "doubt"...do you hesitate or do you allow the process to continue?...it can get especially tricky and subtle during these times...nobody can give you a straight answer on what to do in this; this is an individual thing that you must work out for yourself. The "stretching" sensations are always a good thing, let them continue...don't disallow any sensation.

The rational thought blockage is a good sign that your consciousness is realizing that it needs to re-map itself in a way, like a re-write of a personal computer program. A consciousness crossroads, a Y in the road...which way will you choose? Rational thought reaches an abrupt end...what are you left with? What is your "feel" of the situation? A big part of the Non-Physical is your "feel" of it...incorporating that "feel" becomes part of your new consciousness paradigm...

I will add this- it is not a re-write of your Physical World Reality and life; rather it is an indication to look differently at your Non-Physical World and how you are going to approach it. It is like walking into a store where there is a first set of automatic doors and a second set of automatic doors and an air conditioning system that blows air upon your entrance to equalize the pressure and minimize the temperature loss within the store entrance. It is a temperature change and an air pressure change...all very suddenly...our first entrances to the NP can often feel like this; a little disconcerting.

It may not feel like progress at the moment, but trust me, it is...keep plowing ahead.

Fun, right?lol

EV

EV,

Thank you for the reply, they are always appreciated!

In response to your question "...do you hesitate or do you allow the process to continue?"
I find that when the sensations first start coming on, I really have to focus on not paying allot of attention to them; and observing them with a mild curiosity. I am getting better at just letting the process continue, I do realize that.

I do notice that if I focus on them I seem to go backwards in to progression a step or two. But, I am able to quickly bring the sensation back and re-focus.

in my original post when i saw unable to form thoughts it did cause some fear and doubt. It was interesting tho... it was not stopping the process. The fear/doubt grew and I decided it was time to "wake up".

On a side note.... I have tried many ways of keeping my mind occupied; funny enough (the simplest trick) I realized the other night was, that just counting forward for me work awesome. it gives me a feeling of moving ahead, as if each increase in numerical counting forward bring me ahead in my purpose.

Just wanted to throw that in. LOL!
38  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Making Progress / New sensation? on: March 03, 2017, 15:30:00
I don't know but it seems there have been others having some odd things going on as well. Seems perhaps we are pushing some sort of boundary. I've been exp some strange things too but don't know what's going on.

Nameless, that is very interesting that numerous people are starting to go through different stages that are "new" to most.

Wonder what we as a human race are being told / directed to??
Interesting is it not?
39  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Making Progress / New sensation? on: March 02, 2017, 18:06:58
Hey guys and gals,

last night I laid down to AP and had a range of sensations...

- Vibrations (All different kinds). Started as soon as I laid down!
- Felt like my whole body was being stretched like an elastic band.
- Felt like my head being pushed to one side.
- Pulsing static in my ears.
- Extreme pressure in my head.
- weird thoughts that made no sense at all.

Then a new one that scared me and I had to "wake up". I was finding it impossible to form thoughts in my "head". I knew what I wanted to think about, but could not "think it"!

Best way to explain it is, say you want to tell you loved one "I Love You". You can just vocalize it and say it. You can also "Think It", in your head to your self.

Now I knew what I wanted to "Think" while laying there. but I could not actually think it?

Almost like I could not form the thoughts? Is was a little jarring and I had to get up after what felt like a minute or two.

On top of that the whole process took 11 minutes which was really quick for me.

Any thoughts on what was going on with my thought process? I have never had it happen before?

Just came across this post; I have been struggling for about 3 months not to have another OBE since my last partial separation.

This hit the nail on the head as to what you explain, not to do. I am excited to try this out tonight and tomorrow morning.

Hope all works out and I can get out!!

Nope.  But the software this forum runs on is extremely old at this point and adding anything new could be a tipping point to total ruination.  Smiley

So we don't want to touch anything.  hehe

Ha ha ha... that is totally understandable!

If i may say.... having the ability to access this form through Tapatalk would be a great feature.

Have any talks come of this?
45  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Do negative emotions take a major role in AP? on: January 20, 2017, 20:18:22
Any emotion you have is a good emotions, you are feeling them for a reason.

Weather it is happy, sad, angry. You need to accept  the feeling and move on. There is no such thing as a BAD emotion.

They are your emotions and part of natural human existence.

I find that if I am having a "less desirable" emotion I will still try and project. 9 times out of 10 after I lay down, within 10 to 15 min the relaxation takes over an I feel great.
46  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Internal Pressure?? on: January 20, 2017, 19:52:11
Well, it's kind of funny... because most people are on the right track, they just tend to convince themselves otherwise.  Smiley

I think you hit the "nail on the head" with that post.

I find I am usually questioning "did that feeling I got really happen or was my mind playing tricks on me".

Something to work on I suppose.
47  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Internal Pressure?? on: January 19, 2017, 22:47:50
It's normal AND it was real.  You experienced it, so it's real.

It's just part of the normal process of pushing your conscious away from this physical reality.

Xanth, Thank you for your reply. your comments are always appreciated.

As someone who is new to this; it is sometimes nice to hear from more experienced people that you are on the right track.
48  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Internal Pressure?? on: January 19, 2017, 19:23:16
Bump.

Anyone??
49  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Internal Pressure?? on: January 18, 2017, 02:52:22
Hello Fellow AP'ers,

I was working in APing last night but it was late and I didn't expect it to go anywhere.

After about 30 - 45 min; I could feel this fairly strong pressure that seemed to build in my whole head. It then seemed to also start to move down to my shoulders and into my right and left arm.

Is this normal or was I to tired and just my mind playing tricks on me?
50  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Questions About Roll Out Method on: January 10, 2017, 23:38:28
I've Astral Projected a few times, but have only been successful using the target method (will post method soon) and affirmations. They tend to be hit or miss and have taken anywhere between 20 minutes to 4 hours to exit. Nowadays I get stuck at the vibrational stage  sad

I am able to totally relax my body and reach vibrational stage pretty easily. However, I have not been able to perform a physical exit like roll out, sit up...etc

I have tried to roll out but each time I did I physically rolled. So I had a few questions on the method:

Do I need to reach SP to do roll out or can I roll out without SP?

If not, do the vibrations have to be a certain intensity?

And how exactly do I roll out using my astral body without using my physical body?

Please note.. I have limited experience and will give you my thought and finding. Another experienced member should be able to provide more detail.

There is no need to experience SP. You can project without experiencing this. As long as you "THINK", you can.

The two times I have had partial separations, I was in the vibration stage.
One time they were a lower frequency, but still fairly strong and the other it felt like they were almost maxed out.

In both partial exits I heard a click; almost like I had cracked a knuckle or my neck. I didn't actually do it, that is just the best description of the sound I heard, non physically. 

As I heard the "CLICK". The first time my NP head seemed to fall out of my physical and I was stuck in my pillow LOL. I stayed there for a little and could not get any farther and decided to re-join my physical. the second time i was able to get my head up and my right leg. Once again could not get any farther and re-joined to my physical.

Just mu $0.02... hope it helps a little.
