Could be entirely unrelated, but how long is your hair, and where does it lie? I say this because at times my medium-length hair can brush into the region of my eye-lash, and cause an irritated twitch if I don't notice it happening. It sounds plausible that something similar may happen to you. But then there are many other possibilities too.

4 ceremonies in 2 weeks... that sounds a bit intense for a person with no prior experience more than likely, considering how intense one experience may be under the right conditions.

Some have called him a coward for taking his own life,

There are statements that he was likely on prescription "selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor" (SSRI drugs). Those types of substances can trigger some radically impulsive episodes in people, and are often noted for causing depressed, non-suicidal people to convert into depressed, suicidal people. When you take a catalogue of all the recent mass-shooters and suicides, a startling percentage have SSRI's somewhere in the mix. Not saying he bore no-responsibility, but those substances can really throw a person a nasty curveball more often than not.

(Note, this is not medical advice to anyone, just my feeling on that class of drugs).

I see you were able to login  wink

Pretty damn variable actually. Most of my recent experiences have been extended from lucid dreams, as I am going to bed exhausted and need the sleep. Typical ones will last maybe 10-20 minutes. But they can get MUCH longer. There seems to come a time when the perception of how long has passed in the experience doesn't match up with how much time passed in the physical world. I have had experiences that seem to last literal weeks. One that I had this year found me in a sort of "school" environment, wondering if I had become trapped there, or if I was perhaps actually dead. Usually you can get back if you want... but it is a big world out there, and lots of things happen out of the norm.

Unfortunately /or fortunately there is no galaxy

That's interesting, I don't think I have heard that one yet.

Would you care to explain why you say this? It is sort of a big claim to make in matter-of-factly way without going any further, afterall.

Do you feel there is an earth? I mean that quite seriously.

UFO's are not Aliens or smth, UFOs are Ex-Humans - Gods of the past, ei - Vishnu, Shiva, Zeus, etc.

I think it is a little difficult to say that with such final authority. This world is a pretty big place, and may admit of several kinds of life or beings interacting with this world. They don't just have to be one thing... It is entirely possible that humans have been engaging with extra-dimensional beings as well as beings inhabiting physical space in our galaxy with us.

A professional first post. Some very good information.

To me this is sort of a question of reference to doctrine, because it is very difficult for a person to answer such a question with only ration or empiricism, although Rainbow's third point makes sense enough to me.
10  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: What is your favorite book about Astral Projection? on: August 03, 2014, 05:21:32
Yeah, clearly asked many times lol, but no big deal.

Some of the better authors include Robert Monroe, Thomas Campbell, William Buhlman, Charles Tart, and Robert Bruce.

Each of them has their own paradigm; if you had those 5 in a room (unfortunately no longer possible), they might agree 60-70% of the time.

Monroe's super-famous trilogy is his most famous work I am aware of; Campbell is most known for the "My Big Toe" book, and Bruce is best known for "Astral Dynamics".

Charles Tart is more of a parapsychology researcher, and he has written a few good books explaining his own worldview and his reasons for rejecting materialism after experimental results, but he focuses very heavily on projections, having been a peer to Monroe (as was Campbell).

Bulhman I am less familiar with, only having read a couple of his books, but he is recommended by many here.

I best relate to Thomas Campbell's work, but he is not the best author to read if you are more interested in methods; I remember Bulhman standing out in that regard.
11  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Celestial Beings on: August 03, 2014, 03:38:20
No, not offensive, maybe just a little narrowly defined- the only named entities are those that fit into Abrahamic traditions. When people see non-corporeal beings, they usually tend to relate them to whatever religion or worldview they ascribe to, so the language they use to describe what they perceive sort of depends on the person and their cultural context.

I am sort of like a lot of others here... the beings I have interacted with are often creations of my own mind, but those that don't seem to be I have difficulty labeling. They are other minds... that is the best I think I can do. Some of them are very warm and inviting, and others are a bit more netural... perhaps because I don't have what it takes to meaningfully interact with them in whatever method they are acclimated to; I guess I would compare it to meeting the attendant at a hotel desk when you yourself are a butterfly; the worker is good-natured and helpful, but not much she can say to a butterfly, lol.
12  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: can you have your sexual fantasies play out in the astral? on: July 27, 2014, 01:41:34
It's as good a goal to pursue as most really. Nothing wrong in it. I wouldn't fixate on it, but the thing in itself isn't a bad thing.

I think there is a tendency for people to associate sexuality of any kind with lack of control. If non-physical sexuality means loss of control for you, then caution is advised. If it doesn't, then I don't see the harm in it.

Sexuality often implies something different in non-physical context though... the more intimate experiences tend to be those where the participants share experiences or memories. By living the other entity's life for a little while, you share something beyond intimate... it is like you have taken a step toward becoming the same entity. That is union of a high order!

I thought he had just dropped off the boards and not been heard from for a while. But has it been confirmed that he passed some time ago?

In the strictest sense, no, it has not been confirmed that Frank is dead. No one here has seen his death certificate, or has spoken to his family to confirm it. It is a long-standing Pulse mystery. There are strong reasons to think so though. For instance, the last months of Frank's posting, he spoke of very nasty health problems.

I'm still new to this, so would someone mind explaining exactly what this is? I know how channeling works, so I assume that's what this is?

Mostly, it does sound like channeling. Blue is using a device whereby stray radio signals and distortions are picked up, and the theory is that a dis-incarnate entity may take these random signals and assemble them into a speech pattern. Blue then asks a question, and interprets the signal chatter that follows. You can sort of make out the responses, and sort of not- it takes a lot of manipulation with audio programs, and even then, she relies on clairaudience techniques to hear clarifications to some of the statements in her head. So yes, channeling is a good description of the claim being advanced here.

Not too be cynical or anything, but when is Frank going to tell us something that we don't know through simple common sense?

In the next session, Frank is gonna tell us who had Kennedy killed, just wait!

I do know what you mean though, lol. As a consequence of the structure of all of this, I cannot necessarily accept it at face value. But then messages like these might be simple for a reason. The mistakes we all make in life are simple enough, and the answers often are too.

A nice message, and effort greatly appreciated, as always!
15  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Is helping our place? on: July 21, 2014, 17:48:27
I can't help wondering, if through mistakes and roughhood we learn, then is it not our place to help asist or heal others? Does that rob them of their personal expiriences/lessons?
If then, what should we do?
What's your input?

I think this is one of those times when you can't really speak in absolutes. There are many degrees and shades to this issue.

For instance, if it were totally counterproductive in all ways to help others, does that mean hospitals and doctors should all cease to be? For that matter, doesn't that mean that families should basically dissolve? That parents should leave their newborns outside after the first day?

Clearly all of those people and roles have a place, and there are very good reasons to help others at many times.

So I see it more as a judgement call, than a question of whether it was always good or always bad, because it isn't that simple. It is about balance.

I never thought of them being capable of entering this world.
Interesting concept.

The contemporary idea is that they are a shade of a person's own psyche... that is why it is said to be like electing to develop a disassociative personality disorder... the theory being at a certain point of acclimation to the practice, the person may forget the tulpa is merely a concept, and interact with it as an external being.

But this is sort of a pop-cultural idea. I have never encountered a person that had actually happened to.

I have heard vague hearsay that the practice (tulpa generation) can lead to psychotic episodes if pursued too intensely.

Not sure if there is any truth to that, but be sure to take care in it all, and perhaps consider abandoning it if you find it leaving you with adverse effects.

Nothing yet that was said. I just wanted to put that in there in case anyone wanted to post here claiming that other universes didn't exist. I know there's a few of those people on this forum.

Ahhh, ok. I think we do have a few people who embrace materialism on the forum, but even those people would probably be a little silly to discount the possibility of other universes as theories like the "Multiverse" purport there to be ( the semantic language issue I brought up aside).

NP Focus, SP, F 23, F 27, BST

Non-physical focus, sleep paralysis, focus-23 (one of the marker states of consciousness in Robert Monroe's system), focus-27 (same system), Belief-system-territory (non-physical environment built by a person with strong pre-conceptions of what non-physical life is like)

Any others?  wink

They are sort of massively-recurrent jargon terms for non-initiates to speak to one another with.

Facts don't cease to exist just because people ignore them.

I don't think I understand the context of this statement. Which fact being ignored in particular did you mean?
24  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Re: There are other universes on: July 14, 2014, 13:44:37
A friend once got cross with me for suggesting there might be other "universes", because the word itself was defined as the totality of existence, and it really only made sense for there to be one totality of existence (by this understanding, the term "multiverse" would be an oxymoron). But that is just semantics that arises from scientists naming something not known to be the universe thusly, perhaps quite prematurely.

I am not certain whether the number is actually infinite or not (who knows or can say for sure), but all indications are that not only is the reality we occupy vast beyond imagining, but that there are unknowably many other realities out there. So I guess that is infinity as far as mere human conception is concerned, as humans aren't equipped to internalize the idea of 1 followed by a billion zeroes, as it may turn out to be.
