Thanks for the kind words.  I certainly don't have AP'ing advice for anyone but I can help out with computer advice.   smiley


I edited my pic of how to post an image.  I added a 2nd example to make it easier to read.  I did have to delete my Web Browser History/Cookies though before the picture refreshed on the original posting.  I will just add it here again so it will be available.

You can certainly just put a link into your message but not everyone will click on the link to view it.  Some people just like to see the image immediately!  You know...instant gratification!  smiley

Very sorry to hear about your Mom.  Speaking from experience it is always hard loosing a parent.  All I can say is that with time things will get better.  I like to think of it as being a new beginning for her journey.  I think that as an APíer you know without any doubt that you will see her again. 

My condolences to you and your family.

You cannot just upload pics to this forum.  You have to post them elsewhere and than enter the link to them in the Ďupload Ď process.  For example, my internet service provider provides me a personal account where I can store pics.  I than enter the link to those pics when I am trying to Ďupload Ď a photo to this forum.  Hope that helps.

Thanks all,

Maybe Iím breaking free of old habits.  Hopefully Iím moving on to the next level!

Hello all!

Just thought I would check in.  I havenít posted in awhile but I still come here daily.  Havenít had much to post.  The most recent experience Iíve had was having two LDís in one night.  Not usual for me but the interesting thing was they were the same LD.  I havenít had a LD in some time and before I went to bed I had a strong intent to have one and I wanted to learn something from it.  So, I had the first LD and awoke and wrote it down.  I little later in the night I had the same LD again but I was able to make changes in the dream as the same scenario unfolded. 
I have also been recording my dreams for the past year and half and have been learning things about myself and trying to make improvements.   Within this past week I had a dream and was told that I would be working with different people now.  It seems that maybe the types of dreams have changed now.  Not quite sure how to describe it but they just seem different than the usual ones Iíve had.  Still need to figure out the theme.
Last night I saw a dinosaur trying to escape a fenced off area like in Jurassic Park.  I than became the dinosaur.  Not sure where that one came from.
12  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: The FLOAT Experience on: January 03, 2018, 03:42:02

Sounds like a cool experience in the float tank.  That would be great to have one of those at home to jump into and meditate everyday!  If you were to use it on a regular basis you probably would end up with the visuals.  Maybe you were just expecting too much on your first attempt and ended up putting a self imposed block on yourself.  From reading your previous experiences I know that you are determined to meet with your higher self.  Maybe another self imposed block.  You already know yourself better than anyone and maybe you should just accept whatever experiences come your way.  At some point you may be given that opportunity but for now maybe there are just other things you need to experience first.  You mention that your higher self must know the condition of your life but I do have one piece of advice for you.  As tough as things seem to be at times in your life just remember that you donít do things because they are easyÖyou do things because they are hard!

Cheers!  smiley

(Dont mean to be intrusive, I am just deciding to become more active on the forums so this topic permeates my thoughts on a regular basis, I am trying not to fall into old habbits and put this by the wayside again)

Best wishes to you,  with every person who succeeds and documents or shares the ball keeps rolling. 

Intrusive...Not at all!  I enjoy everyone's comments, insights and new perspectives on anything I post from novice to experienced members.  Sometimes people point out things I may have missed or glossed over during an experience that helps me go back and re-evaluate the experience.

Observing (without emotion) is certainly a good strategy.

But to achieve sth maybe try to give a command showing your strong intent instead of asking question.

Instead of 'can you help me with this?' just say 'help me with this'.

There's nothing bad about being a bit of a boss in the non-physical.

I believe my intent had been answered.  I wanted to be shown the next thing I needed to learn and that lesson was provided even though I didn't get it until after.  I will certainly think about how I phrase things in the future with my intent!

The first thing I learned, via a Guide/Mentor, (this being my deceased Brother-in law) was the value and importance of "passively observing". You will always know when it's time to give that "commanded" prompt to the scenario.

I find that 'passively observing' is a lot more difficult than I expected!  This is something that I am working on.  During a meditation session a couple of nights ago I went from the black behind my eyelids to a full colour image so fast that it startled me and I got too excited.  So definitely need to work on the passively observing.

HaHa!  Thanks for the 5 stars! I have great teachers!  grin
16  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: Hemi-Sync Holiday Sale on: November 13, 2017, 19:53:11

They have recently updated and overhauled their website.  I think it may depend on how your accessing the website.  I find that the site doesn't work well with my iPad and iPhone.  I have attached a pic of the website from my computer.  The Promo Code is: 20OFF

I enjoy listening to Hemi-Sync products.  I have bought many of them and as I said I have bought the Gateway series.  I find they help me relax and focus and some titles have more of an effect on me than others.  The Gateway Series has also helped me but I think they will resonate with each individual differently.  There is no Magic Bullet that I have found that will give you a NPR experience.  I believe you will only get out what you put in.  I have recently been trying to learn how to phase.  I have done lots of reading here, have gotten great advice from members here and I have also asked my guides for help while listening to a Hemi-Sync title.  I clicked out while listening and had a very short dream that gave me my answer.  I was shown that I was on the right path but I just needed to keep working on it.   smiley

17  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Hemi-Sync Holiday Sale on: November 12, 2017, 23:05:18
Hemi-Sync holiday sale is now on at:

If anyone has been wanting to buy the Gateway Series or any other Hemi-Sync title now is a great time to buy.  You can use their promo code they provide on their homepage and save 20% at checkout until Dec. 31.  This is how I bought my Gateway set last year.  I bought myself the digital downloads and was able to start listening almost immediately.  You can buy either the digital downloads or CD set.

Anyways, just wanted to share this for anyone who may be interested.
18  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: The Discovery - Movie on: October 31, 2017, 14:03:26

I agree, it was a bad movie!  They kind of glossed over the whole 'Discovery'. I watched it because of the subject matter.


Don't worry, things pick up in 'Discovery 3 - The Search for the Afterlife'!

19  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / The Discovery - Movie on: October 31, 2017, 02:27:45
I watched a movie on Netflix on the weekend called ĎThe Discoveryí - Science Fiction/Romance with Robert Redford and Jason Segel.  It hasnít gotten great reviews but I thought it fit in very well with this forum.  It is about a man who has a scientific discovery of the Afterlife resulting in the deaths of millions of people who decide to cross over.  It deals with a death of someone who ends up stuck in an emotional loop and ultimately the retrieval of that person.  It was rather a slow movie but I thought it was worth it because of the subject matter and the fact that people are producing these kinds of movies which in turn gets more people talking about it.
20  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: October 21, 2017, 06:30:51

Thanks for all your feedback!  I appreciate the time you spend responding to my posts.  I will make some adjustments to my technique and keep on trying.  I will head back to door #1.  Was that the green door or the orange door?  cheesy

I'll keep you posted if I manage to go further than I have.

21  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: October 21, 2017, 00:26:01

Just for clarification I have been trying the phasing technique and my intent was not on the RTZ exit.  I think I have just been confused in this thread.  You have mentioned earlier in this thread about rowing a boat, swinging back and forth in a hammock, ping pong effect in your 6 pt focus, etc.  I think these examples have confused me about the phasing technique.  I will give up on my motion focus and will have to start over and go back to the basics. 

Thanks for pointing out where I am going wrong with my techniques.  smiley
22  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: October 20, 2017, 01:46:12

Thanks for your response.  I donít typically use my bed for any practice sessions.  On occasion I will lie down on the sofa and listen to a Hemi-sync title but this is usually when Iím tired and just want to relax.  Maybe I shouldnít do that at all.  When I do intend to practice I am usually sitting on the sofa and listening to my Hemi-Sync.   I donít have a comfortable chair like a Lazy Boy recliner but it is on my ĎTo Buy Listí for this exact purpose.  Other than an OBE I had a couple of decades ago I have only experienced one full body separation OBE which happened a year ago and this happened while I was napping on the sofa.  I was dreaming I was in the water and it felt like something was grabbing my leg.  It was when I realized it was a pillow on the sofa that was touching my leg that I separated from my body.  I have never experienced or shall I say been aware of sleep paralysis and this one time is the only time I have ever felt vibrations go thru my body.  I know these arenít necessarily required to haven an OBE.  I have never experienced LDís before until I came to this site last year.  Since then I have experienced many of them.  So, progress is being made.
As for the technique I use while practicing, I have been working on the Phasing/Noticing approach.  I have read thru this thread multiple times trying different techniques.  I am usually trying some sort of motion technique such as being on a swing, or paddling a canoe.  Sometimes I try to imagine myself already out of the body.  I will see my body sitting in a chair in the middle of the room and my awareness will be on the outside of the room say 15-20 feet from my body and I will start moving and circling my body in the chair.  I will than try to speed that motion up.  I have had varied success with the motion techniques.  Like I said previously, I get to the imagery but either fall asleep or get snapped back to the Physical. 
Lately, I have been trying to really open myself up to my community of guidance and to feel the connections to them as well as my intuition.  Prior to this I had a Lucid Dream whereby I got to meet about 20 of them at a reception that they held for me.  I was amazed at how many people were there.  I got to talk to a couple of them but I was told that most did not want to interact with me because it would spoil things for me down the road.  Your experience you had with the parrot telling you to stop using your eyes was similar to a very recent dream I had where I was told in my dream and I quote: ďÖis what shuts down your experiences!í.  For the life of me I donít remember what was said.  I guess I am not really listening to my guidance! LOL!  It really isnít hard to fill in the blanks but if there is something in particular I wish I would figure it out.
I will keep at the techniques and I will really try to let go.  If I hit those speed bumps like snapping back I will continue to just relax and head back from where I came.  If I fall asleep than thereís nothing wrong with getting a little extra zzzís!
23  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: October 18, 2017, 02:05:25

I finally got to see your artwork.  Wow!  You and MJ are very talented.  Those dragons are amazing and the crystals and trees are so cool!  Wished I lived closer to come and see them in person.  Personally, I think you guys should be starting a website and selling them online as well. 

Back to the topic, I seem to be stuck.  I can get to the point where I am seeing imagery but I either snap back to the physical or I fall asleep.  Just not sure how to avoid those two scenarios.  Other times I will feel rapid movement and for some reason I canít just go with it.  Whenever I get the falling sensation my body jerks back to wakefulness.  My last one happened a few nights ago as I was sitting on the sofa listening to a Hemi-Sync title.  I felt very rapid movement backwards like the feeling you get if you were riding on a train and sitting so you were looking towards the caboose and watching the landscape go by in reverse.  My body just seems to tense up and itís all over!  sad
24  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: My Theory About False Awakenings on: September 28, 2017, 03:48:12
I have had a few false awakenings and have found them confusing and intriguing.  I had another one last night.  A false awakening is just another dream and dreams are meant to provide us with learning opportunities.  Does this mean that this type of dream is providing me with the opportunity to develop or increase my self awareness?  Is it testing my NP self to see if I can recognize my environment/surroundings?  With my false awakening last night everything seemed and felt very ĎRealí but this only lasted a very short time like maybe 15-20 seconds when something must have been off in the dream and I became lucid.  I donít recall what made me become Lucid but hopefully my NP awareness is learning to recognize my environment.  Once I became Lucid I awoke in the physical.  Seemed like a lost opportunity for a Lucid dream adventure but maybe I learned what I needed to!
25  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: I was finally able to bring a song back from a dream- You can listen to it here! on: August 25, 2017, 03:06:00
I hear songs in dreams very often. And almost everytime, I remember thinking how great they were at the time, but I can't remember them!

This is one thing I have not experienced yet.  I have never recalled hearing a song in a dream.  I hope that with a strong intent I will be able to hear one soon!
