1  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Spirits asking me for help? on: September 17, 2017, 18:19:28
It's been a while since my last post, but I felt like I should share an experience I just had. I was taking a nap with my baby brother, when I began to astral project. I got the usual experiences, but once I knew I was out of body, something strange started happening. Where my baby brother was, a little girl around the same age or maybe a little older, was crying. I felt no negative energy from her, and she began to talk to me. I can't remember what she was saying, but I knew she needed help. Skeptical, I actually went my back to my physical body and woke up, only to find that my brother was still sound asleep. I managed to instantly go back to where I was at, but this time, she was not alone. There was this other presence that I'm pretty sure was a spirit guide. I wasn't able to see them, but they guided me to where the little girl was talking about. They took me to the pre school where my high school adjoins it. It was like I was taken to the past, given that there were kids and parents running around there. My guide pointed out a spirit I needed to interrogate. I began to ask them questions about what they knew, but they instantly became resistant and didn't want to answer a thing. I became aggressive, and this spirit became even more aggressive, shifting their face attempting to scare me. It didn't work, and I attempted everything I could to find out more about them. My guide told me that there was nothing more I could do at the moment. I ended up going to this house that seemed pretty run down, and the little girl was there too. This time, she seemed frightened, and kept informing me that there was someone coming that she didn't want to be around. Before I could ask more, I was whisked away to an unfamiliar spot next to a highway. I was then confronted by about 3 or 4 other spirits, all asking if I could help them. Before I could reply, I actually witnessed someone being assaulted and possibly murdered. This is when I woke up. There has been no reports of murders or disappreances in my town, since it's a very small town. I'm not sure why they're asking me for help, but this is the first time this has happened.
2  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Elemental Magic Books? on: July 16, 2017, 05:10:11
After my last post, I've been doing extensive research on magic. I have somewhat of a photographic memory so I'm a very quick learner, but I still have a very long ways to go. I'm hoping that some of you may have a good recommendation for a book about Elemental Magic? And while I'm here, does anyone know any good books about all the different kinds of magic? Some could say that googling it would be easier, but I really don't like to rely on the internet with all the information. I feel like books are a more reliable source of info.

Thank you for all the information. And thank you, Lumaza, for the great book recommendation, I'm buying it as soon as I can smiley
4  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Entering other people's dreams. on: July 12, 2017, 05:11:54
I remember reading somewhere that while having an AP, you are able to enter the dreams or send them suggestive thoughts. Now I've only had 2 years of experience, and have only recently began to AP, so I know there's so much to learn. I know that basically everything is possible in the astral realm, but I was wondering if you could do what I stated above so they could possibly remember when they wake up. Also, is it possible to make another AP while they're sleeping? I also read somewhere that you have to have that person's permission. I'm curious because in my attempts to astral project, I've felt a loving and kind presence trying to get me out, as if they want to help me. I don't know if it's another astral traveller or maybe a spirit guide, but it got me wondering if I could do the same to others.

I would like to thank everyone that has left helpful advice on my other posts because honestly, their advice helped me finally achieve an AP. I know I post frequently, but I'm a very curious person and basically crave knowledge. I figured asking more experienced people would be helpful. Thank you for taking time to read my post
5  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / New to magic, need help please on: July 10, 2017, 07:04:51
Hello everyone, I'm looking for some help. All my life I've heard about magic and it's uses, but I'm still curious. To start things off, I live in a small town which is very Christian based, about 95% of all residents attend the many churches around here. All of my family are Christians, given my one Buddhist grandma that has taught me so much in my spiritual journey. Being in a Christian community, everything is absolutely biased against anything that isn't Christian, so talking about my beliefs is very hard, even my best friend puts me down and tries to disprove me when I try to talk about how I see things. My mother is also very superstitious and finds anything to do with spirituality considered demonic (I blame television.) I've learnt about white magic and black magic, and know the differences. But media always slanders anything of that sort so every time I see a pentagram, I instantly think of bad things. But there's something that draws me to white magic and how it works, like something from beyond is magnetically pulling me towards the practices of white magic. Outside of my small town is a small shop dedicated to all things spiritual and magical, and is where I've gotten all my teachings. The shop owner is literally my mentor, and always suggests the perfect books. He has plenty of books about magic along with many crystals and talismans. I plan on asking him for a book about magic, but being 17 I still live with my mother and if I'm found with a book of that sort I'll be forced to get rid of it, but I'm moving out soon so I'll pursue it immediately. But I would like to learn a few things before I dive in.
1. Is there a way to overcome the fear of ridicule from the Christian community and the weirdness felt from seeing a pentagram?
2. Do all spells always work? Do they take intense practice like astral projection and other practices?
3.Are voodoo dolls considered black magic? I've been interested because there's this girl at my school that I've been in love with for years and we were almost together at one point but my best friend liked her too and sabotaged the entire thing, but at times she does show some interest in me and I was hoping in increasing the chances of her being attracted again.
4.Can you attract negative entities during spells or rituals? I'm very empathic to the spiritual world and can sense energies and entities very well. I just don't want to attempt something and it affect my whole family. I have a little brother that I see as my son and I don't want anything to harm him.
Im sorry for the extremely large post but I always have a lot on my mind and many questions about absolutely everything. Any and all answers are very much appreciated!
6  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / First OBE! on: July 02, 2017, 19:52:48
So after a few days of practice, I finally had my first OBE. I had no intent of having it, but it was amazing nonetheless. It started out when I decided to take a nap after I didn't get much sleep the night before. When I fell asleep, I opened my eyes to see that I was in some sort of Chinese gazebo. I knew that I was projecting, so I instantly made myself float upwards. It was successful, so I began to float upward while still on my back. The more I floated, the more my legs began to go more upwards than the rest of my body. I chose to let myself fly freely, and I found myself floating around. I noticed my surroundings and it seemed to be some sort of Chinese gathering place, being surrounded by a small building with Chinese decorations. Everyone was having a good time, like they were in a park. I floated around, also enjoying myself. I looked at my hands, and my hands looked very strange. I tried to control them but they were wiggling around like they had a mind of their own. My vision was blurry looking at them, so I demanded clarity, and I began to feel intense vibrations. After a while, the vibrations got really intense and I woke up back into my physical body. I was extremely pleased with what happened. I'd like to thank everyone who gave me great advice on what to do on my previous posts.
7  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Strange but great experience after failed OBE on: June 30, 2017, 10:33:07
So after my last post, I decided to take the advice from the people that thankfully replied with great advice. I was closer to projecting fully this time, but it ended with failure. I wasn't too upset, because I know it just means I need more practice. But what I find weird is that the past two nights, I've actually been feeling pain in my attempts. The night before, the pain was in my chest as if though it felt like a clenched fist. After 4 hours of trying, I gave up and woke up to find that I had a dull throbbing in my head. Now just a bit ago, I tried it again, but this time there was an uncomfortable pain in both my legs. I called upon my spirit guides and angels for help and protection this time. During this experience, I felt as if though there was light filled presence walking next to me, and I could feel as if though hands were on the back of my astral body, trying to helpfully push me up. I could also feel light touches on my physical body which I've been very familiar with my entire life, so I didn't panic.  The pain in my legs was too much, and a calming sensation made me think "Just wait till tomorrow, you can practice tomorrow." Now this is where my experience gets stranger. 

After waking, I realized that 3 hours had passed by. I was extremely hyperaware of everything around me. I'm used to this, and I know it's a normal feeling but this one is different. I could hear the lights flicker and dogs barking from the other side of town. This was a more intense feeling than I've ever had before. After using the bathroom, I headed back to the living room where I originally attempted to AP (keep in mind that all the lights are off in the house besides the light from my TV) and as soon as I walked in there, a ball of light flew in front of me and then slightly towards me and then disappeared. I thought that I should have felt startled, but I surprisingly didn't. I felt calm and more reassured about everything. Now the only time I've ever saw any spiritual beings on the physical plane was when I was 5-6 years old and a dark entity plagued my family. I know now that kids are more sensitive to seeing stuff like that so for years I hadn't seen anything like that at all, besides the usual feeling a presence,light touches on my body, light breezes. But after my failed OBE I feel like I'm filled with compassion and a love for everything, especially after seeing that ball of light. My senses are back to normal at the moment, but as I type this, I can still feel that very light-filled and compassionate presence that I felt before, as if though it's happy that I feel more safe and secure and that I'm sharing my experience to others that will understand. Now I know this forum is filled with very skilled people so maybe I can get an explanation to what might have happened or what I felt?
8  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Im a bit stuck on: June 29, 2017, 18:42:33
Hello, I'm new to this forum (thanks Xanth for approving me) and I was hoping I could get some advice. I've been practicing meditation and astral projecting for over a year now and I'm having some trouble. When I first started, I would attempt to astral project, but with it always ending in failure. The closest I've gotten was with me leaving my body a few times, but only to force myself back into my body. This was mostly because it felt like something malevolent was trying to actually drag me out. The first time, my mind was flooded with images of me being stuck in some sort of labyrinth while being pursued by two entries I couldn't quite see, and then I began to astral project. I could feel the same presence while I was leaving my body as if though it couldn't wait to get me out of there, so I forced myself back. The second time, I felt like I was being drug out by my feet and was floating toward my closest (I was a bit creeped out by it at the time) and I could feel something I didn't like waiting for me there so I retreated back to my body. Another time I felt like something small but heavy, like an angry dog,  jump on my astral body as I was about to leave and it began to growl at me. After all these experiences, I quit trying to astral project and just focused on meditation. After a good long while, I realized that all these negative experiences I've had must have been from my fear of what I would see on the other side. After I realized this (I had awakened my third eye prior to this realization) I would sometimes realize I was lucid dreaming and try to astral project, but would barely be able to get out of my body. But back to the problem at hand.

For two months I've been attempting an OBE, but I've only gotten very close. I can feel myself getting closer, but it's like I'm stuck. I attempt it when I'm a bit tired, but it can be hard since I'm only a senior in high school with 3 very loud younger brothers, which I decide to put on headphones and listen to binaural beats which helps greatly. Since I've been meditating for almost 2 years now, I can quickly get myself into a relaxed state and begin to feel sleep paralysis or either get into a very deep relaxed state. I get to the point where I can induce vibrations, but this is where I experience problems. I get to a point where I can actually feel my astral body separated from my physical one, but it's like Im stuck. I attempt to use different methods like seeing myself walking around, the rope method, attempting to roll out, all of that. I can begin to feel the vibrations and try to focus on them, and they can get pretty intense. But no matter how hard I focus, the images seem to fade away and so do the vibrations. I can attempt it over and over again, but its always like I'm in my astral body that's stuck in my physical. Also, whenever the vibrations start, my physical body behind to tense up, such as my abdomen and chest,  and I have to make myself relax. Also, I find my eyes trying to involuntary open,or they twitch like crazy.  The only times I've ever been able to leave my body is when I'm just about to accidentally fall asleep or if I bring myself out during a lucid dream. I've overcome my fear of anything I might see, and I haven't felt anything bad or malevolent after leaving my body, so I must've done that part right. Am I focusing too hard? Am I getting too excited when I feel the vibrations? I know that when you try to force yourself to astral project that it's usually unsuccessful, and I'm not sure that's my problem. I know this is probably insanely long, but since I have yet to have a full OBE, I'm hoping to get some advice from an experienced traveller.
