Honesty, its kind of hard to actually say you will really die from the silver chord being cut.  Its pretty rare if at all people see each other on the astral plane, and to say... have a battle trying to cut the chord its really difficult to discern if the other will actually die.  Basically you will have to will yourself to die, but that would have to effect you on your physical body.  Mysterious deaths dont happen that often and to try and figure out if it was caused by such a thing probably will never be found. Being long winded for nothing I suppose, but I'm trying to say nothing to worry about it.

Advice - dont be frusterated ^_^ .

When you do get frusterated go ahead and take a break.  Just keep practicing and not be hard on yourself.  I'm sure there are plenty of posts about visualization, so if you havent tried out the search here give it a go.

Edit- changed original post... post lost its purpose.

So...  rolleyes blah blah blah.
5  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / 3rd chakra bothering me on: June 14, 2008, 03:30:01
Blaaaah blaaaah - deleted my original post.  I was venting... i suppose.

So instead...
Why is it that your feelings are usually located at the solar plexus.  I.e gut feelings.
In relationships when your worried about losing someone(discomfort in the gut) or even desiring someone (butterflys in the stomach).
-Not strictly about relationships, however more along the lines of strong emotions - which you can define yourself.
What do those feelings mean? Do they really have to do with the 3rd chakra? How does this influence your life - i.e the way you act or even how you attract something towards you?
Have any story about how these feelings shaped something in your life for better or worse?

Personally, when I feel anything intense in my gut I have deep thoughts about the situation - i.e deep thoughts about being a friend.  What all that means.  What people mean and what it means to feel/be connected to them.  Why we choose certain people. How it has shaped our lives.  The beauty of expressing emotions and ideas to people so they may understand ourselves, because they care on some level about who/what we are.  If you think about it we see hundreds of random people and out of all them we have chosen each other.  How amazing all those formless people(to us) simply disappear, but as friends inside we have said "I like you...I dont want you to disappear, become a part of me".  Its interesting to see how we have created thoughts about these people and developed emotions. I honestly cried over the beauty of meeting some people.
- - -
A heavily watered down verson of what I experienced.  What I felt at the time was intense.  I could'av been overacting...still I'd have it no other way its just how it happened.

Try to add more than just the looks of a guitar.  Try adding the hardness of the body, a smell, ect... Its not really about seeing it from your eyes.  You basically see it from your 3rd eye.  When you add all these other things to it your more focused on it, in such a way that its almost real.  I'm not sure if my advice is actually valid, but give it a shot  tongue .

I can certainly see how money works as such a tool.   cheesy  Money is a pretty good spell on its own too.
8  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / magical instruments on: April 10, 2008, 14:33:50
 Just wondering about a few things...

What is the purpose of having something like a wand or staff, if the ability magic is in you.  Does it assist in preforming magic? How so?

Since, these are just normal objects with the belief that they are magical, does it make it reasonable to use any object as a instrument - sword, pencil, banana peels?

How do you know what materials to use in your wands or staffs? Is it even nessesary to have certain components?

I read the book too and definately touched my emotions.
Would you recommend the movie? I didn't know there was one.

Depends on the test, which I'm sure your just taking the standard drug test(probably a urine test)
.
This is straight from erowid.org -
"Single use will be detectable for 1-6 days."

It can stay in your system for over 12 hours, you wont be high the entire time, but you will have after effects(like being tired).  Drinking water will help get it out of your system, since it was only once i dont see anything else you'd need.

13  World Cultures, Traditions and Religions / Welcome to World Cultures, Traditions and Religions! / Re: project: Contemporary World Religions on: February 15, 2008, 22:47:12
I edited my first post, so it actually makes sense.
14  World Cultures, Traditions and Religions / Welcome to World Cultures, Traditions and Religions! / project: Contemporary World Religions on: February 14, 2008, 14:18:14
 I'm doing a project for my world religion class and it can be anything you can think of, like writing a poem, creating a dance, making a short film out a story, ect.. just has to do with religion.
I want to do my project on magic, so heres some examples of what my project can be about -

- The christian view on magic - or
-  ____(insert religion) view on magic -
- How black and white magic is mentioned in the Vedas(sacred texts) from Hinduism -
- The mention of magic in multiple sacred texts from different religions -
- ect...
 For my project I am supposed to use the major world religions that we go over in class, but that isnt my concern right now.

So what I would like from anyone here is to direct me to any information of magic and religion having to do anything with each other, books, sites, ect... There really isnt a limit of what you can send me. I'm just hoping you guys can broaden my ideas through more information.

Try using less of them, or just buy some cheap magnets that are weak?

I'm pretty any sea salt, although I think celtic sea salt is healthy or something... like more nutrients?
I've heard fridge magnets work.

19  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Re: electrokinesis on: December 10, 2007, 17:29:34
 What are you able to do with electrokinesis?

I have a wireless mouse that runs out of batteries fairly quick or atleast quick for a mouse.  I kind wondered if electrokinesis can extend battery life or even replace batteries all together.  When I thought of it the mouse starting working fine for a few seconds, but I'll explore this more. 

 Since you have reached a point where you can see results will you try a test yourself?

I'm interested to here anything, even if you think it was a coincident.
20  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: Eating Habits effecting Spirituality on: December 04, 2007, 04:15:05
 I think what he may mean is that being a vegetarian you can end up being deficient in a certain vitamin or mineral(as well as other diets).  My cousin went vegetarian for awhile and ended up being deficient in Iron(IDA). This is a reason to have a balanced diet, just be sure you get what your body needs.
21  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: Eating Habits effecting Spirituality on: December 03, 2007, 20:09:59
As long as you have a balanced diet. cool

If you think food will effect your spirtuality then maybe learn more about food and get a deeper understanding overall, then try to see how the two go together.  A simple example-
If you eat easily digestable foods then you will probably be able to meditate easier and longer.
or-
Eating healthier may give you more energy overall and maybe help you to be able to astral project easier, see aruas, or whatever.

I'm not saying those examples are true, but just be aware of things like that.

Don't forget to drink alot of water.
22  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Re: The validity of Magic on: November 30, 2007, 15:44:57
I wouldn't mind trying to give this a go.  I'll just say what I think magic is and anything I think might have been a case of "magic".

  To me magic is making what you want happen and that can be pretty much anything, however I do believe that you can't break the laws of the universe, but you can make it seem so. Being a wizard means to be a creator of reality.
  I think something connected to magic is changing the way you look at life. I have a friend that thinks god and satan "speak" to him, though not audiable but by "showing" him things, just everday things but with some message in it(details aren't important). I have actually experienced a few messages with him and the only way I could understand is if he points it out.
  He says he also hears messages in music, but they are different from god/satan messages(universe speaking).  I personally experienced one recently and 'saw' it.
I said "I have to go"
    *he just finished picking a random song as i finish my line*
Then few seconds later... bam the lyrics go "you don't have to go".
I went home anyways ignoring it... as I get home I realize I dont have my key and I'm wating there for like an hour until my dad returns.  I felt strange ignoring it, the universe was speaking to me... 
So how does that relate to 'magic'? Well, songs (particularly rap/ r and b) are like his way of hearing from the universe, actually I think the term is "medium" and messages/answers are spoken thru music to him, as for me only when I'm with him I notice this.
 Here is an example of a spell- My brother told me about this and I'm pretty sure its from the book called 'Conversations with God'.
Its called the "I want" spell and its negative. When you say you want something your spell has been cast, so that is what you get a 'I want'. Want is the absence of something.  Personally think about this a see how it effects you, maybe start changing 'I want' into being thankful for what you have " I am thankful for having enough food today" or " I am happy that I have enough money today".  Since many people here are for having astral projections, lucid dreams and all that, change the 'I want' to I'll have a 'insert' tonight.  In matter of fact when I was telling a friend about this, he told me " when you told me I'll have a lucid dream I did"(he was having a hard time going lucid and I was trying to help him out).

There are lots of books on magic, like the one I have said earlier Conversations with God, but another one is called The Four Agreements and I'll list them here-
Be Impeccable With Your Word , Donít Take Anything Personally ,Donít Make Assumptions  and Always Do Your Best . If your not interested in getting the book some people have written reviews on it and you can get a better understanding that way. A book doesnt have to be specifically about "magic" it just has to do with how you can shape your reality and as I said "Being a wizard means to be a creator of reality".

Pretty random I guess  cheesy but w.e.

24  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: "mind awake body asleep" technique experiences on: November 11, 2007, 19:48:54
I have felt that lifting sensation in my legs before and it 'peeled' the rest of my 'body' out and I had a projection, but I didn't feel vibrations(I don't think its always necessary).

So, what you experienced was close to a projection.
