In the past, Xanth here had his own "IRC" Channel. I don't know if it's still active, but I used to use it occasionally a few years back.

 I personally don't own a cell-phone. Never had any need for it. My home computer suits me fine!  smiley
I *BELIEVE* it's still active, kind of...
It was mostly manned by Noy and a few others, but I haven't been in there in well over a year now.
I was gonna remove the link from my website actually soon.  I was actually going to re-brand my website soon to use a new url I've had for a while now.

We see what we "need" to see when we "need" to see it. But, when we close ourselves to "other", other is no longer shown to us.
Yes, for the most part I can agree with that.  Smiley

My point is that I derive most of what I know from my own personal experiences. 

Like, if someone tells me something... yet I've personally experienced something which directly contradicts that, then you're going to have a SEVERELY hard time trying to convince me otherwise.  This is where most of what I talk about here comes from.  So many people on these types of forums share pseudo-knowledge, meaning it's just stuff they read in a book or online and it's not from their own personal experience.

I value personal experience over anything anyone tells me any day.  Although, I do want to point out that that doesn't mean I don't listen to what others say, ESPECIALLY when it comes from their own personal experience.

Does that make sense?

ROFL Thanks Nameless.  Smiley

I also meant to add that I don't believe for a second that the bit of consciousness which is in your glass right now stays as "yours".
I don't believe that when the consciousness which is me will still be portioned off for another go around.

The implication of this is that, yes, once you die, that bit of water which is you ceases to exist as a separate, individual... it returns to the whole.  This is the illusion of existing.
Most people fear this kind of thought because they don't want to cease to exist.  Well, you don't REALLY cease to exist... you just become part of the whole again.

I then read his reviews on his website and saw that he was very strong in his beliefs and was not even the slightest bit open to changing them. After seeing that, I was glad we never met!
That's pretty much how I read him as well.  Very closed.
Don't get me wrong, he's a nice guy, but yeah, very closed in his thinking.

Can't blame him really for that though, he's experienced so much... in a sense, I'm very closed too based upon the experiences I've had.   LoL
107  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Growing, evolving, graduating to higher planes and reincarnating on: September 27, 2018, 21:12:08
Kurt Leland says that we are growing and evolving spiritually. I guess this is the purpose of life.  He said people who have been astral projecting for a long time, over time graduate from one body and plane to the next.  Just as he did and as Robert Monroe did throughout his three books.  And as we go to higher and higher planes we get closer and closer to returning to Source/God. 

So does anybody know how we grow spiritual so that we can rise to the next body and plane?  What is required of us?  Is the requirement different for each plane?  And how does reincarnation factor in to all of this? 
What you have to understand is that we humans are very organized people... we love to place things in hierarchies, mostly to assist our egos.
Suffice to say there isn't such neatly made hierarchy to the non-physical. 

There aren't higher or lower "planes".  Consciousness just "is".  It's the epitome of "being"...

Robert Monroe didn't evolve to different bodies and planes.  That's a belief based ideology.  He just became better at exploring the randomness of consciousness.

I can't answer your question in the context you ask it, because consciousness simply doesn't work like that.  What you CAN do, however, is just better your little bit of consciousness by becoming a better, kinder, more loving person.  THAT is how you grow and you can do that 110% entirely in this physical reality.

As for Reincarnation, I don't believe reincarnation works as most people think it does. 
I think of all of life as a tub full of lukewarm water (go with it for a second. Wink). 
Your glass which holds your consciousness scoops some water out of the tub. 
Now as you go through life and you (hopefully) spiritually grow and become a better person, the water in your glass heats up.
Then one day when your physical body dies, the water is poured back into the tub adding the heat (spiritual growth) to that of the entire tub... either increasing the spirituality of that tub or reducing it, depending upon the kind of life you lead.  Reincarnation comes when another glass takes some more water out of that tub for a new "life", it could grab some of the water which comprised your life.  Who knows once your water is merged back in.

That's my poorly described view of reincarnation.  Smiley
108  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: How could ALL dreams be OBEs? on: September 24, 2018, 10:29:30
Consider this statement for a moment then: You're *NEVER* in a body.

Daydreams are as much a projection as any dream is, or any physical reality experience is.

It's ALL a projection.  Everything you know is a projection.h

Life isn't "but a dream..."

Life is a projection.  Any life.  All life.  Just projection of consciousness.
109  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Has your life improved from Astral Projection? on: September 24, 2018, 10:10:37
I have learned to not fear death.
I have learned that we are consciousness and we will return to consciousness.
I have learned to stop searching for the "astral" as we are always "astral".  There's no escaping that.
110  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming made super easy!! on: September 21, 2018, 20:50:32
You do see the irony in this statement given you are the head honcho of the worlds most renowned AP site.......right?
HAHA  Head honcho.  Smiley

And yes, I do realize the irony in the statement.
But I've also learned quite a bit since I began this journey and the more I learned and the more I experienced, the more I found I needed to focus my attention *HERE* in this physical reality.

I continue to teach people to project in hopes that they too figure this out one day.  Actually, I know they will realize this eventually.

I'm also not saying there isn't value in Projection, I'm just saying that those who focus exclusively on Projection completely miss the point of why they're experiencing this physical reality in the first place.  Smiley

I resonate a lot with Xanths comments. I originally got into OBEs for purely superficial reasons. It sounded fun. Spiritual materialism got the better of me. But with experience comes a greater understanding of the self and the greater whole we are a part of. I am more in touch with my own divinity. I try to live from a heart centered place. I now go to a metaphysical church and say grace over meals(things I never thought I would do). I know I create my reality and being in a positive, loving, high vibration is paramount to getting the things I desire.

For me it's all part of it. And OBEs are a part of it too but but a small part. I am grateful they helped open my eyes but I no longer feel the need to go gunning after them either. Whenever I go on a TMI retreat, the programs aren't about getting away from the physical.  They are about, first exploring your inner self then taking what you learn and incorporating it to live a fuller life

I am more intuitive and get information from a higher source without the need to go out of body. Sure I still enjoy them when they occur spontaneously in my meditations but they aren't my focus. So, yes I resonate with Xanths comments
Sometimes I wish we could "like" posts on this forum.  Smiley
You'd get a big fat juicy LIKE from me Flori.  Wink
111  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: If you have an amputated limb and astral projected please read!!! on: September 19, 2018, 21:03:52
I have a cousin that died by a large bomb in Iraq, nothing left of him, and I want to know if he still lives on in the astral. I think the best way to answer that is to see if someone who had an amputated limb still has that limb in the astral. So please if you can honestly answer this question I would appreciate it. Either way if he lives on as a full embodied being in the afterlife or is a part of the cosmic dust once again. I just want to know the truth. Thanks.
Your cousin exists as anyone else who has died exists... they're part of consciousness and have returned to consciousness.

When he was born, his consciousness was scooped out of the ocean... his little bit of water in that glass was then poured back into the ocean when he passed.
112  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming made super easy!! on: September 19, 2018, 21:00:44
Isnt it ironic that we come into our bodies just so we can spend our entire lives trying to get it out of it??!!!   cheesy
Actually, this is why I don't actively work towards projection any longer.

You're here, in this physical reality FOR A REASON.  It's to learn to Love.
Inevitably you WILL return to consciousness, you can't stop that... so why work so hard to go back there?

Use your time here more effectively by learning to become closer to Love... instead of trying to escape from the physical.
113  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming made super easy!! on: September 15, 2018, 03:57:33
But I thought its not a complete OBE until your fully out of your body and walking (or flying) around.
I thought in the dream state you merely hover a few centimeters above your body.

Or do I have that wrong??
It's all just labels.  I've always said that people need to lose the labels... but that's not fully helpful either.
It's probably more important to just "loosen" your labels a bit.  Loosen the definitions you hold onto.

For me... we're NEVER *in* a body.  There is no body.  There's only consciousness.
This physical reality is as much a "projection" as any dream or obe people have.  

Being "fully out of body" or "hovering centimeters above your body" are all just beliefs people have held due to the, mostly, misinterpretation of the data/information they've received.
But don't get me wrong here, I can't prove this stuff anymore than anyone else can.  Only direct, personal experience can prove this stuff *TO YOURSELF*.

The problem today is that people hold onto these labels so tightly that they make it impossible for themselves to look beyond them.  If it doesn't fit in a neatly labeled box, they ignore it.

Feeling the need to experience stepping out your body for an obe is a physical world hang up. We as humans learn that to get somewhere we have to experience movement because the laws of time and space dictate this. These laws dont exist in the non physical so you dont need to follow them. Once you have more and more obes the need to experience a visceral separation dissipates.
Very nicely put.

And hi!  Long time no see. Smiley
114  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / Re: how to die on: September 14, 2018, 20:54:37
You're probably asking about how to focus your mind on other planes of existence, while still alive on this Earth. Depending on what you want, you can try any of the many altered states of consciousness experiences. I recommend self hypnosis.
I don't really care to posit a guess on a question so vaguely expressed.  LoL

116  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming made super easy!! on: September 14, 2018, 20:52:04
So these were LDs where you suddenly became conscious while you were already dreaming vs. an obe where you consciously step into it?
There's no difference between those "types" of experience you list above. 
A "LD where you suddenly become conscious while you were already dreaming"... IS an OBE.  Smiley
117  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: OBE compared to NDE on: September 14, 2018, 20:50:21
Remember, we call it a "NEAR DEATH" Experience... you're not dead. 
You're still very much alive.  Just because your heart stops beating, doesn't mean you're dead.

We, as humans, still are very much mystified over what "death" is and when it's a COMPLETE event in which you can no longer "come back".
So with that said, your physical senses should still be fully activated. 

I view a NDE as no different from any other kind of projection.

Hi,

Can anyone guide me on how to die to this world (without actually dying) and become spiritual?
How to forsake the physical and embrace the spiritual?

Thanks,
Sarah
What exactly are you asking?

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know how to see beyond the veil? Can anyone recommend good books on that?

Thanks,
Sarah

After posting yesterday, this morning I caught myself waking up and kept my body still in same position with eyes closed. I was able to feel vibrations start to surge a little but go away. A good sign its possible now. Just hate that I flop around like a fish in the early morning.  rolleyes
http://www.unlimitedboundaries.ca/2010/09/26/phasing-method-dont-open-your-eyes-when-you-wake/

Give that a read.  Smiley

Hi

If you catch yourself waking up... The moment has passed to have a obe. Even if you got vibes..Your chance of a obe is ..pretty much gone.. Why because you don't have the  conciouness to fuel it. Your conciouness is now focused on being  awake. You should do this during the night. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Flopping around like a fish is .. ya ..it's not all that good. Shows me that you have long passed the s/p stage..  You need that stage to obe. No fish flopping.  Your goal is to fall asleep without knowing that You did. The mind will.. respond. I keep telling people if you want to obe..don't try.  LOL

Sorry I don't mean to be negative.. Just want you to succed.


Lucid.
Actually, you're still good... so long as you don't open your eyes or move.  I usually can only catch myself waking while already coming out of a non-physical experience.  I'll be in the experience and begin to feel myself waking up, at which point the "shift" happens.  Once that happens, if you stay perfectly still and keep your eyes closed you'll quickly shift back into the experience.  There are times where I'd done this 6 or 7 times in a row over the course of an hour.  The best part is that I always shifted directly back into the same experience I was having before.

It's been 13 years since I wrote those articles, phew how time has flown. I have had many experiences since then. I applaud the owners of this site for keeping it up all this time. I sincerely astral pulse will be here for many years to come. It is kind of sad to see that activity isn't what it used to be here. Has interest in the subject waned? To date the two most important events in my life are the birth of my daughter, and when I discovered the out of body state.
The "forum" community has probably dropped off a bit, but the interest is still seemingly there in the global community.
We're still here and going strong though.  Smiley
124  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Going into area 51 via akashic records on: August 27, 2018, 11:11:01
The "akashic records" isn't quite what most people believe it to be.

The records are simply part of consciousness.  YOU are part of consciousness.... as such you already have direct access to this field of knowledge.

You just have to learn to listen.
125  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: What happened. on: August 26, 2018, 07:34:56
Sorry about this post. It turned out to just be a minor neg. I dispelled it very soon after.

I realize this is a very old post, but I want to clear things up.
Actually, what you realized was that there was really nothing there at all... the "dispelling" simply makes it real TO YOU.
