I just thought that I would share my experience with the people who are having a hard time projecting, in hopes it will accelerate their progress.  A lot of my progress came from practically attaching myself at the hip to Lumaza and him steering me in the right direction.  I followed his advice as best I could and got really good results.  

First off he had me read!  Note that I have been projecting sporadically for awhile now... maybe 3 years.  But during this time I asked many questions on this forum without even really reading the stickies here.  Recently I did and this gave me a TON of information I needed plus answered some questions that I may have potentially asked if I hadn't.  I will also reread some of these because as my experience progresses I get more out of them and may understand them better.  There were specific ones he directed me towards but since then I have read more of them as well.  They are stickies for a reason.  

Another thing he and others stress A LOT is affirmations.  At first I did this by using the ones other people came up with.  Now I have made my own because they just didn't strike home with me and I like mine better.  They are worded with words that I would typically use, thus I'm not saying an affirmation that doesn't strike deep within my soul.  And to be honest, my affirmations are usually a conversation with myself that takes one minute or up to five minutes.  When I feel I have gotten the points across to my subconscious I move on.  

Lumaza mentioned in some of his posts how he liked Binaural Beats and Isochronic tones.  Well, I now too have began REALLY liking these.  They help me melt away and forget about my body.  And this is of course the point!  Heh.  He has mentioned a ton of different references for these.  One I like that he mentioned was Paul Collier.  I have consistently had good results with many of my OBEs with a specific track by him.  I mean why fix it if it isn't broke.

Another thing that just screams in this forum is to give things a chance.  If you try something once it most likely will not work.  You have to give things some time.  I have read this numerous times on the forums.  

Don't be shy.  Hehe.  I do believe that the forums are very important, however I also think it is important to find someone you can talk to via pm or whatever if you have specific questions.  Especially if you want to see if what they did works for you.  Some people really do want YOU to succeed.  They get satisfaction out of helping people.

There was much more advice that he and MANY others gave me.  I kept what worked and added my own touch.  I find myself happy with the results so far. One of the things that I do is similar to what Monroe did.  I keep a journal of my experience.  In this journal I not only include the experience itself but also the preparation for it.  Here is an example and I break everything down in hopes I can find the pattern of what is working and what is not (remember, the OBE's you had a year or 2 ago you most likely will not remember what you did prior to them so I believe this is important!)  

TIME/LOCATION12:30 Slept in living room next to my son but by myself.  
WHAT I ATE OR DRANKEmpty stomach.  Little water/no caffeine.  
BINAURAL BEATSListening to BB Paul Cullier
RELAXATION TECHNIQUESystematically put body to sleep by relaxing(hands, arms, feet, legs, torso, neck), moved on to making body parts heavy but fell asleep.
MISELLANEOUSWas I tired/or awake?  Did I nap that day?  If so, when.  Practically anything I can think of that I might deem as important to me.

Right now I keep a journal of my OBE's and what I did prior to them.  After I note all the circumstances I go on and journal the actual experience.  I am honestly thinking about keeping tract of unsuccessful attempts and what I did on those days as well to further help my understanding.

The relaxation technique I found below has REALLY helped me.  http://shadowdance.org/toteg/trance.html  I like the systematic procedure of it all.  As you do it more and more you will get to the state of total body relaxation and or numbness faster.  I believe this is an important step to newcomers.  There are many ways to go about it, but atleast this is a detailed technique that you can take what works for you and leave the rest.

I also worked on imagery a lot.  Lumaza has a Doorway technique. There are Non Physical awareness techniques that are important.  By doing some of these and other techniques he and others have mentioned you begin to be able to actually leave this reality through your imagination.  http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/the_doorway-t46013.0.html
http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/how_exactly_do_you_perform_the_phantom_wiggle_method-t44583.0.html

Ultimately your success is determined by your ability to keep yourself accountable and to do what you need to do to figure this out all out.  Think of it like this.  YOU are a doctor and YOU need to diagnose what works for YOU.  Your condition is YOU CAN'T AP!  Doctors try many things on patients and keep NOTES for many reasons.  With progress in regards to OBE/AP it is really nice to know what works and what doesn't work.  If your like me you will forget details if you don't write things down.  If you go away from this for a week you might not remember what was going on last week.  Everyone is different.  If you are a patient with an unknown condition and the doctor isn't able to systematically eliminate things he probably isn't getting any closer to the solution either.  THIS I believe is MUCH like that.  This is how you learn what works and what doesn't.  Diagnose yourself.

This is just a bit of what I felt I NEEDED to share with the forum.  And note that MANY people helped me, A LOT!  Too many names to mention.  However, Lumaza directly helped me via pm and who I sort of consider as my AP therapist.  Hehe.   Please feel free to add anything that you would have considered being a game changer in you success to AP.  Thanks!

 Thank You Enigmatik!  smiley

 I am glad I could help. But just remember it was "you" that did the work. I just gave you a possible foundation and showed you some building blocks.
