I'd also like to know which it is.

Can't be Astral Dynamics anymore because most posts there have nothing to do with AP/OBE.

The problem with FB pages is that whatever you comment there will appear on all of your friends's walls. I don't want my friend to read that. I haven't found how this can be blocked though because pages are usually public.
I'm not sure but can't you create a second page from your private one, e.g. as an artist pseudonym and post as this identity then? So one could always take on a nick like we do here, too?
53  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Astral Projection on Social Media Seems Alive and Well On Facebook. on: March 01, 2019, 03:41:55
Yes. We already found this out in that thread. It is the reasons why 'traditional' forums of pre-FB and pre-Smartphone type Web 1.0 or 2.0 like this one have declined.

We're a dinosaur, practically extinct.  wink cry

I wish you strength for the challenging time you are going through and send you and your husband energy.

55  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Souly for Retrievals! on: February 22, 2019, 13:05:14
Wow, EV, that was a cool experience with Lifeline.  smiley

I myself start or resume the process of retrievals myself now and I had my first one with drowned children recently although it was a bit more 'bizarre' for me.

I wish I could also attend a seminar at the TMI, but it is too costly and too far away for me.

I see violet during meditation sometimes and also when I was in a healing situation from another healer, then the violet dots or clouds moved from up to down or left to right. So yes, it possibly is also about healing.

Wish Lumaza, our retrieval expert and thread starter, was still here and comment but it seems he has again taken a longer time-out?
56  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Is astral projection / obe the same thing as lucid dreaming? on: February 20, 2019, 22:50:10
LD is more the way you get there, namely by already being in a D.

Projection for me also means induction (direct or indirect from half-sleep).

Still I remember getting lucid is always somehow in the more (private) 'dream zone' (as Kurt Leland calls it) which would be F2 according to Kepple.

OBE/AP can get you anywhere probably from F1-F4 if you are capable (although F1 might not be the actual F1 but a kind of etheric layer of the physical then).

Just from my gathered experience but I feel this fits also the accounts of many others.
57  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Astral Projection possibility question on Quora on: February 20, 2019, 21:52:20
These question-answer sites are full of materialist 'skeptics' who actually have to always butt in on EVERYthing, mostly about things they don't know anything about. I also noted this about other topics on these kind of sites.

Those 'skeptics' love writing their opinion over and over again (another example: Wackypedia). It makes them feel secure. So they can finally believe it. If it is written down then it must be true (which makes them ironically very similar to the scripture-dependent religionists).

Maybe it also alludes to you being a starseed who is indeed from somewhere else before experience-wise and you 'came here' a (long) while ago (eons or a few lifetimes) to help Earth and help (be?) the guardian. Sothat Atlas dude could be a metaphor. I think many of us projectors are 'starseed' and therefore we see this world as just one of many in different ways (dimensional but also in the physical universe) and that is why we also love the art of projection (also as a kind of escapism sometimes).
59  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Taken to Unkniown Constellation on: January 30, 2019, 23:10:33
I actually find space experiences least exciting. Maybe because I don't like darkness. Sometimes, I just start shooting up, passing the upper atmosphere and I start panicking as earth starts to disappear. I guess it's just my human character's fears.
As one who has passed quite some time in The Void I like the darkness (although it is never fully dark there).
Your detail about the red dot over Florida guiding you down also intrigued me as it reminds me of an experience of mine where I was shown the location of a past life (Southern France) also from above on a globe/map. Seems a kind of normal mode for the non-physical to use red dots for this.
60  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Taken to Unkniown Constellation on: January 30, 2019, 18:50:29
Fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

I so far only got into space seeing Earth from above and diving down again but never any further (as far as I remember it). I wish I'd also see some other systems and planets one day via AP.

61  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Re: Placebo Effect on: January 26, 2019, 15:35:29
I still wonder when they will change the term for what it really is: "mind/energy healing".

But in their internal logic and dogma they could never do this because in their world-view these things don't exist. But the Placebo effect which is the same thing with a different name does. What a joke.

62  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: talking before sleeping working or coincidence? on: January 23, 2019, 23:37:41
It is generally maintained by many that speaking affirmations aloud (instead of just thinking them in your mind) does help to reinforce them and make them more effective. We have no certain statistics on it but many have made this experience that it helps.
63  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Explorations in Consciousness Website Closed on: January 18, 2019, 17:39:33
The one thing constant about our reality and life in general is that it changes.  Smiley
Things wax and wane as time goes by.

Teaching projection to little children should come along with the concepts and ideas of spirituality and meditation.
Everyone should not only learn to meditate, but we, as a society should meditate daily.  Finding time to be quiet with your own mind is paramount to learning to be with society.
True. Children should be taught meditation, that would help the world to bring about a 'shift' and more peace, since the effects on our collective consciousness are already proven. AP and 'other stuff' might then also come with it for some of them (later) but it is not necessary to happen for everyone.
64  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Explorations in Consciousness Website Closed on: January 15, 2019, 22:54:42
The vanishing of  the EIC forum and the temporary blackouts of the Astral Pulse was one of the reasons I had created the 'backup' forum last year in November. I thought maybe we and any aspiring new and true projectors needed a new home. Still I will start it soon anyway, just because I created it in the first place.

(Again: Patience please for the few who already registered waiting for approvals through the anti-spam process, still need some more time before I start, have a lot of other things going on in my life right NOW, so I'm a bit dizzy now  shocked . Of course anyone from here will be heartily invited to join then and I will also invite some people I know myself maybe from AstralDynamics, RT/Transients and maybe even Campbell's MBT then).

AstralDynamics for me is also practially no more since the AP related posts are almost non-existing and the Transients/Roundtable forum which I like a lot for other reasons is no OBE/AP forum at all, despite the fact that it has subforum, but it does not deserve this name. Me and Laron (who is the owner actually and a really cool guy) are the only OBErs / astral projectors over there.

I also see the advantage of the Pulse in the google search entry. I have checked out my options for the outofbodyboards and it is difficult to get a free forum on googlesearch yourself since you don't 'own' the website and so cannot register it. That's a huge disadvantage.

I agree that forum and discussion culture has gone down with the childish 'texting / blog comment' style of facebook and twitter and similar Social Media, it is just not the same as any detailed forum discussion. It is sad to know that many of the young and very young internet users will never get to know this option. And may never seek it thus.

I assume that is our short attention span and short-lived click attraction society and times we live in now.

This is true for everyone else here, of course. You can register if you like. Forum might start soon.
66  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: THE VOID on: January 13, 2019, 21:09:58
I havent read the entire void post but went to the website it is posted in. Great new website. Hope it generates traffic. Looks like you put alot of work into it! Registered!
Thanks. Please be patient. It still takes a while until the forum opens and registries til then will be accepted and forum discussions can start. You registry is noted and in the queue. Thanks for registering and the nice words. I will keep you posted on the forum development and you'll get the 'go' message as soon as it started.  cool
67  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / THE VOID on: January 07, 2019, 00:15:23
I was asked by Lumaza to put a copy of my long post or 'kind of' article on the Void here on the Pulse. Problem is though with formatting issues that made just paste+copy not good enough (quotes, pics, formats, links all would have to be adjusted or reuploaded) and it is also very long. The reformatting problem combined with the length issue is also the reason I did not even post it on my own little OBE-blog ( yet.

So that's why me and Lumaza agreed that I just add the link and it can of course be discussed and commented on here in this thread then. I put the table of contents here, so you can see the structure.

Maybe it is not perfect English language (as you know I'm not a native speaker) but I was tired and short of time for doing more proof-reading. So I decided it is good enough. I also wanted to finish this before the new year started.

Here's the contents table copied from there:



Part I - Introduction & Definitions
Part II - Authors, Experts, Researchers & Teachers
Part III - Internet Forums & Articles (Astral Projectors)
Part IV - My Personal Void Research
Part V - Conclusions & Outlook

I wrote it in a thread as 5 posts on my soon-to-opened (or not ...) OBE-Forum which I had created and built just days before during October and November last year. This spontaneous forum was meant to serve as a 'backup forum' because as some you know the EIC forum vanished last year and the Astral Pulse was also 'offline' quite a long while.

So I thought one cannot be sure if the Pulse might not return one day either after all and so I started my own thing to find a new alternative 'home' for aspiring and experienced APers. It's a cloud based forum though because I am not an IT specialist and did not want to pay any money. (At least in future or for the time being it's a provisional backup, but it might open soon anyway, let's see how it goes, if I am in the mood to give it a try.)

Without further ado, here is the link.

As is also stressed in the article's introduction, the corroboration via multiple sources / witnesses / authors was my goal. I think I accomplished it.

Maybe if you decide to have a read then do it in installments, bit by bit or chapter by chapter, since it might take time. It is long and it also contains a certain degree of repetitiveness due to the corroboration aspect. So it also can be boring. Even more due to the 'bare' or 'dry' content which is more 'basic' since we might go to the basics of reality itself, at least that's what I think.

Also looking forward to Volgerle's work.
Soon, maybe tomorrow, Sunday is a good day, I'm now short of time again. Saturday night life waiting.  wink evil grin
69  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: The Doorway on: January 05, 2019, 22:17:25
. When I was younger I had sales training. This training was for "direct" sales, as in door to door sales. At the time, the people teaching you were basically "slave drivers". Door to door sales was and I guess still is very high pressure and the methods of the teachers were very ruthless as well. We made our projected "quotas" for the day in morning meeting. You either reached them at the end of the day or didn't. You never used the word "try". It was greatly frowned upon and would always end up with you getting chastised by a superior in the company.
Reminds me of what I did for over 4 years but just in the office as a telephone sales agent instead of outside canvassing from door to door. Yet, it is practically the same, just on the phone, calling number after number (yes, it sucks!). Indeed then you are taught that you have to eliminate any softening, polite or subjunctive/conditional speech out of your language, such as 'could' 'would' 'might' 'maybe' 'perhaps' or similar. You always say 'this product helps you to...' or 'will help you...' but never 'maybe if you would try it then it could help you ...'.  cheesy
Same with affirmations. Always do, never 'want' or 'intend to' or 'would like' or whatever. Also never 'ask' for it, just 'command' it or even better: state that you already have/are it. The best affirmation is thus always and still 'I am... now' (e.g. out-of-body-now). Or 'I do' instead of 'I'd like to do, I'd wish ...' or whatever.
This is when I noticed/perceived, that I wasn't moving forward towards these scenes, like I do in my 6 pt directional focus. They/the objects or scene were moving towards me.
When I use my 6pt directional technique while in the 3d Void or when trying to reach the Void, I will feel the motion in whatever direction is focused on. Example: the focus on Forward, will normally have me feeling like I am moving forward, like on a Rollercoaster or some driving simulation. I will experience the accompanying visuals as well. For a Rollercoaster, I may see the tracks ahead and feel as the track swerve and turn. Focus on backwards, up, down, right, left, will have their corresponding visuals and motion feelings/responses as well.
With this focus though, There was no feeling of moving towards something. There was no feeling of motion at all, except for the motion of me being perfectly still, as everything came at me.
This is my typcial Void experience. That is why I also called the (Akashic) Void the Akashic Screen sometimes. Yes, there is motion but you can always choose if you move or your surroundings come to you. It is a 3D and interactive screen for sure, but normally I do not move and the Void moves instead or the colours or pictures it shows me. It is maybe the focus I have which is normally not on myself or my body but on what is shown/presented to me. That is why the 'action' is on the other side and I am just putting out my intent or query and 'wait'.
One of the best examples is my card validation I did form the Void. First I saw the right card from afar. I demanded to see it from near to identify it. The card then 'floated' through the dark Void and moved towards me, not the other way round, and so I could read it.  smiley

Toto unveiling the curtain exposing the trickster magician ('god') and his machinery.

Same as we in the atral can do with many so-called negs or fear-related beings or events.

Pull back the curtain, show no fear and reveal what is really 'behind' them.

You can share experiences to demonstrate or exemplify something. This is when I do it. Otherwise it is in my view more service-to-ego. Also if it gets too 'fantastical' - although it might have been taken place - people might think you are a storyteller or just want to show off. There are quite a few out there on other boards or websites (not here) and we always need discernment.

I indeed have a blog (but hardly use it) and had a kind of OBE-journal on a forum (AD) but I discontinued it in 2016. When I started it I then had used it more for myself to discuss and digest the experiences. My discussion section was therefore sometimes longer than the section with the experience described. And also I could draw some use from discussing it with other experiencers who wrote comments or comparisons. That was fine. Sometimes when you are new at this you need sharing and discussing your own stuff and what 'happens to you'. I feel this need no more. Also since my experiences have gone down somehow, of course.

Tom Campbell is another example of s.o. not sharing his experiences for the do-it-yourself reason. I like that approach. But I also like Ziewe for his books somehow although they are not as helpful for learners.

I am grateful to Will Buhlman because it was his first book and his techniques that helped me on the path of OBE induction in 2009.
