Oooooooooooooooooooh!!  DON'T DO IT!!

23andme is about to give access of their entire genetic database to the pharmaceutical industry.

https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/xwkaz3/23andme-sold-access-to-your-dna-library-to-big-pharma-but-you-can-opt-out

Not a chance in hell I'd ever do one of these genetic tests.  You couldn't pay me enough.

I have head that eckencar is a cult .  Some free public wifi will block torrent and porn sites .  This is the first time I have heard any wifi blocking  a cult site .
I take my car over to a Toyota place for oil changes, and their public wifi blocks the Astral Pulse... cause we're pure evil here.  Smiley

Michael Raduga's indirect techniques are all about catching yourself right as you wake up.
I like how you say "Michael Raduga's indirect techniques"... like he invented them or something.
Michael Raduga is a fraud.  He doesn't even believe projection is something real.  So meh.  You'll forgive me if I toss him and his book into the trash bin. Wink

Anyone had any experiences when doing this? any progress when fasting? some people say it helps a lot for some reason but I am not sure why.
I've never found any conclusive evidence regarding fasting and astral projection.

Wow, this is synchronicity!

I was looking at clouds the other day and thinking it'd be a great idea to take pictures of the random clouds I see and posting them on a website.
Just to see if what I see in them is what others see too.  hehe

I can understand, it's getting harder and harder to run a forum these days.
I'm actually thinking of removing the one from my own website, since nobody comes by anymore anyway.  LoL  *le cry*  Smiley

I haven't actually made a new post on my website in over a year now.  Bleh.  So hard to find the time these days.

I tried to get on the site earlier and a message said “astralpulse has been blocked by the server” or whatever because AP was a “cult.” Wtf was that Xanth!??
I just don't like you.  Wink  grin  evil
Kidding.  Smiley

I dunno.  The software the Pulse runs on is extremely old and kind of testy... sometimes I feel like it has a mind of its own.

I'm still trying to understand how "cult" comes into you being blocked though.  LOL  Wink
36  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What's more important: practicing phasing or meditation? on: August 02, 2018, 20:49:02
So it's possible to be in a meditative state while doing anything, but can the intellect be active while trying to phase? Just had this thought today, I think this may be the biggest problem for me. I can be focusing on the breath but I feel like I do this from an intellectual level and the focus is weak because of this. Is the goal of meditation to be able to switch off the intellect? If that's the case would focusing on emotion or something 'being level' be more effective?
HAHA!  I can tell by this statement that you're extremely left brained... just like myself.
Yes, doing all this from your intellectual side isn't really the best.  I wouldn't say it's your BIGGEST problem, but it is a problem.
It really depends on the form of meditation you've chose.  For example, if you're doing a mental rundown, then shutting down your intellectual side completely might not be a good idea as you need to be able to intellectually interpret the feedback from the rundown, BUT you do want to allow yourself, to a certain extent, get lost within the rundown.  So it's kind of a mental balancing act you're attempting.
The Noticing Exercise might be a bit more attuned to you.  It all comes down to finding a technique or a focus which works for your best method of learning.
37  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What's more important: practicing phasing or meditation? on: August 01, 2018, 06:06:38
I found this great statement on meditation just now and wanted to share it here:

Quote
"Learning to meditate is in some ways analogous to learning how to drive a car. You have to start in an empty parking lot where everything is simple, and there is no pressures on you. Formal practice in stillness, such as sitting meditation, is analogous to the empty parking lot. Over time, however, you internalize the skills of driving and are able to drive on a quiet country road. Formal practice in motion, such as walking meditation, is the quiet country road. Eventually, driving becomes second nature. It requires little thinking or effort. You simply get in the car and driving happens. / At some point, you can attend to the business of life and still be in a meditatitve state just like you can listen to the radio while driving on a freeway at rush hour.

So, as your meditation gets deeper, you're able to achieve more and more profound states of concentration and tranquility. As it gets broader, you are able to maintain those states throughout more and more challenging and complex activities of life."

There is a lot of misinformation about sugar, and especially about fructose. This is on one side due to health providers' incompetence, on the other side due to peoples' weakness for  what feels good for the moment, and also due to food industry's pandering to customers.

If you dig a little into the sugar's effect on health, you'll find out that it is the root cause of all degenerative diseases. Among the sugars, fructose is the worst because it isn't broken down as the regular sugar is. Hence, eating more than 1-2 servings of fruits a day is unhealthy.
Correct.  It's broken down by your Liver... hence, it's a POISON for your body. 
When I use something to sweeten or bake with, I use corn sugar which is 100% glucose instead of the 50/50 glucose/fructose which normal sugar is.
The sugar I use, while still sugar and still isn't healthy for you... it's just a bit better for you than regular sugar as your body can fully metabolize it and use it directly as energy which your cells require.  Table sugar has fructose, which is what is killing our species.

My experience is that there is no specific brainwave requirement in order to project. 
The trigger can happen at any point from Alpha and lower.

When I spontaneously project from meditation, I can assure you that I'm not very deep at all.
41  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What's more important: practicing phasing or meditation? on: July 27, 2018, 21:06:22
What would be the most efficient/fastest way of getting to that point? Could i just meditate for multiple hours every day or would I get diminishing returns beyond 30 minute sessions? If it's like learning to play the piano then short and frequent sessions especially before and after sleep would be best due to the resulting neurological adaptations. I really want to get good at this and would want to spend whole days meditating but it often feels like a waste of time as I spend less than 1% of the time actually meditating due to forgetting that I'm meditating and getting distracted from being restless/uncomfortable. I know it took you like 10 years, I'm not far off that, but haven't made any real progress. To keep going I think I need to feel some kind of progress but I've never felt an improvement so it's a bit demotivating.
Just set some time aside each day.
I have a routine I do in the morning... I get up, shower, sit in bed and meditate for 10 - 15 minutes.
That's really all it takes.  I think the more the merrier, but then I really do ENJOY meditation.

I could meditate hours on end and not bat an eye, while someone else who might not really truly enjoy the experience yet (it can take time to learn to enjoy it) might not be able to sit still for 30 minutes, let alone 2 hours.

Whatever you do, just stick with it.  There's really no way to do this "fast".  Smiley
42  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What's more important: practicing phasing or meditation? on: July 25, 2018, 20:41:03
There are lots of expert meditators who have never phased so practicing phasing techniques must be important, and most people who are good at phasing are also good at meditating. So what's more important to develop well: the meditation or the phasing ability? I guess if you become a good meditator then phasing wouldn't take long to learn but can practicing a phasing technique alone be enough to get ok at phasing?
Meditation.  By a long shot.

Learning to meditate is like building yourself a super strong foundation from where you can begin to have all these other metaphysical experiences.
It's essentially your launchpad.  I'd go as far as you will NEVER learn to phase without having a strong base in meditation, because you are REQUIRED to meditate towards the goal of phasing/projecting.

46  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Will Ayahuasca trigger the ability to have astral/OBE experiences? on: June 25, 2018, 03:11:54
Nope, at least not directly. 

Ayahuasca simply opens your consciousness to what you don't usually consciously have access to about yourself.  It's a means of self-questioning to find answers.

The answers you find could lead to something like that.  Probably not though.

In the end, you are already consciousness.  You already project.  You're, literally, not missing anything by being able to consciously project.  You come from consciousness and one day you'll return to consciousness.  Don't be in such a rush to return.

There are, as you put it, people, family and all the rest that you have physically here.  Be THERE for them.  THAT is the point of this physical reality.  Not to escape it by projecting. 
Love the people you can now, while you can.  Smiley
47  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: What's the process of your body falling asleep supposed to feel like? on: June 15, 2018, 11:40:13
(Don't say vibrations, I don't get vibrations.)

I've been meaning to ask this for a while, but every time I've tried to relax and not move a muscle for about an hour, I start to physically feel like I do in the morning, mainly needing a glass of water and caffeine to perk myself up. Sometimes I also feel colder than I do when I'm a little more awake. When I don't swallow for about 10-20 minutes the feeling is 'worse' in that for a few seconds swallowing feels like sandpaper. Is this feeling due to my body falling asleep? Or is it just dry?

I just want to know how close I am to experiencing Body Asleep; Mind Awake.
Good, cause it's not vibrations.

Have you read those stories where people describe a heavy blanket being pulled over their body and their body becoming really heavy?  And/or they feel something heavy sitting on their chest (look up the old hag syndrome)?  THAT the process of your body falling asleep. 

Essentially, the MA/BA (mind awake/body asleep) point is one of sleep paralysis, but the process I mention above is the actual process of your body falling asleep.  Most people freak out when the begin to experience it because they've NEVER actually experienced it before.  Smiley

I hope that helps!
48  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: Meditation on: June 15, 2018, 11:37:28
I have meditated a lot. I am curious as to why I never seem to be able to exit through meditation, relaxing, letting go or just not thinking. I can easily get to a dream stage or at least receive a few random images at times. I can fall asleep temporarily just to get back to focus. I usually completely tune out from my surroundings after a while but still not, not even when I wake back up in my mind during this. Only times I usually project is when waking up from deep sleep during night-time. Anyone more experienced who has any idea why this is so? All I got to do is find myself waking up from deep sleep and then I can exit but not during the day and light sleep, relaxation or meditation...
'
You're searching for the pinnacle of projecting... it's NOT EASY.  Essentially, everything you've been raised and trained to believe goes 110% against it.
Consider this: if it was easy, more people would be doing it.  Smiley

I'm certainly no expert on this, but it's more than just all of those many concepts...

I'll list everything NOT required:  relaxing... letting go... not thinking... those things, in ALL instances aren't required.  It's a misconception which most people continue.
Those things just make projecting "easier"... they don't CAUSE it or aren't directly linked to doing it.

It's about finding a fine balance between falling asleep and remaining consciously aware.  You need to keep walking that tightrope until you find the correct mix "FOR YOU".  That's the trick... and that's why nobody can really help you with it.  You need to find that correct mix which works just for you.   If you find you keep falling asleep, then work on finding something to keep your mind stimulated.  If you find you're not projecting, then you're too stimulated and then you need to find something to continue pushing your awareness away from the physical.

Trial and error.  Most people quit well before this point though.  Keep up the good work!

Yes, they do have answers.  Maybe you just dont understand what I'm trying to do very well.  And my "left brain" is already done working out all the bugs, so all that's left to do is let the left side relax because it knows everything is going to be taken care of.  That will keep it from working against me.
Actually, I know what you want to do better than you do...

Good luck.
