So much for your hate of typing, lol. Thank you for putting in the effort though. I had never noticed the 'try and do'  with hypnotist but you are indeed right about that. I admire Baro-San very much for sticking to his guns. I've been rooting for his ideas to take hold as personally I find hypnotism very useful to ap.

Also looking forward to Volgerle's work.

Thanks for sticking with us.

. 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

Your welcome Nameless!  smiley

 Like I said, I found there are already some things that are techniques and a actual Hypnotist's techniques have in common. Just looking at their basic induction programs is enough to show you that.

We didn't have a script, per se. We were just highly motivated and told to go out and make a friend. Our boss actually won the formula and the rights to it in a "fight bet". He was a fight promoter himself, from Denmark. His "gift" was the gift of "motivation". But his ruthless, aggressive style came from what he learned and lived in the "fight game". He was very intelligent though and if you had good sales, you couldn't find a nicer guy. But if you missed your quotas he showed his Mr, Hyde side.

Yes you are correct. The use of a "past tense" mindset while creating affirmations is very powerful. To the subconscious it sounds more like a "command" then a request.

I am really looking forward to your post and new thread here on the Void. I enjoyed the way you integrated your screen into a set of blinds with a picture/scene on them, that gave you more or less of the picture, depending how much you opened or closed it.
 In my thread here, I have stated often that a little "spontaneity" goes a long way there while attempting to access and also to deepen a shift in consciousness. Once in a while I will just mentally reach in front of me and open up the curtains. I don't need to look for the curtains. All I need to do is go through the mental action and know the curtain is already there.

 In today's Phase/soak session I worked once again on depth and also deepening my experience.

 I climbed into my tub of water, closed my eyes and worked through my Doorway steps. I started with a very brief progressive relaxation. Then moved to a bit of disassociation. Followed up with some quick 6 PT directional focus and now I was primed. I could sense a small amount of depth. It was a bit deeper then just a flat canvas. I then mentally shot the basketball in my hand into the darkness before my eyes. I didn't look for the basketball in my hands, I knew it was already there. So, thought = action was already in play.

 My first attempt didn't' yield much in the visual sense. So, I repeated it a few more times. Now I could really sense depth. At first I could see the net that the ball was going into and soon I could see 5 nets and balls flying all over the place, lol. It was getting a bit much, so I aborted that focus and refocused on just the darkness itself.

 What seems like a few minutes later, I saw a ball coming through the depth. It wasn't a basketball. It just looked like an ordinary round ball. It came right up to me and soon was in my hands. I felt it actually in my hands, which thought was strange at this part in my session. I could feel the weight of the ball. For some reason, on some level I got a prompt to roll it back into the darkness and just observe. This wasn't a verbal prompt, as in a voice that could be heard. Instead it was more of a telepathic voice giving a thought. So, I obliged.

 I watched as the ball rolled out of my location and into the darkness. I then decided to follow it. I didn't question where it was going. All I did was observed it from a distance. Observing from a distance is akin to what I do during one of my "pace car" scenarios. (I speak quite a bit about my pace car visuals throughout my Doorway thread here). Basically what it is entails is focusing on a object in motion, normally kick started from my focus on the Forward direction in my 6 pt directional focus. Sometimes it could be a horse ahead of me or a Rollercoaster car, Rocket, all kinds of things can work as a pace car. I never purposely or should I say consciously create these. They just appear and when they do, I follow and observe them. At first I am normally in back of them, but then I get closer and closer until I am actually riding them, like the Horse or the Rollercoaster. That's when the shift is already a success and now I just enjoying what's next.

 I don't want to "front load here", but it led to a really interesting adventure. It definitely created the depth I was looking for. But not only the depth, it also became the sole focus or should I say the new focus of that journey.

 Exercises like this are easy to do. You just need to leave your analytical/thinking mindset behind for a minute and got just experience it all. You can start with any visual. A motion based one is usually the best if you wish to "follow" it into the NP. If or when the visual disappears/fades, reign it back in. If you don't like where it's going, abort and start over again. No harm, no foul. The only one "judging" you is "YOU".

 My experience above kind of reminded me of something I experienced when I was first new to this practice. I seemed to have a few Guides that were very good on teaching me how to navigate my new NP surroundings. I was using the name "Lionheart" here on the Pulse at that time.

Thank you for your kind words Plume!  smiley Sometimes I think I am just talking to myself here!  undecided  shocked

 I post all this here to teach others, but I am also looking for other people that share in these kind of experiencers and have a passion for experimenting anew. I figured a Forum based on Astral Projection would talk about just that "Astral Projection", but I was unfortunately sorely wrong. Still I come back here to teach, whomever wishes to learn.

Im reading your posts. grin In fact I wanted to comment on your post the other day about hypnotism. I had never heard of how they utilize  the word TRY as a failure. I've always enjoyed Star Wars and first thing I thought of while reading your post was a quote from Yoda, "Do or do not, there is no try" shocked How a movie character understand this and I didn't.  huh lol Sadly, "trying" pretty much sums up 2018 for me. "Doing" will be the focus in 2019.

 Today's Phase soak session was another really bizarre, yet interesting one.

 I got in my tub of water, closed my eyes, relaxed for a moment, just enjoying the warmth of the water (in Minnesota we try to soak up heat any way we can, lol. Winters are long here), then I did my Doorway steps and began just noticing the darkness before my eyes.

 About 5 minutes later, (it's hard to judge time with your eyes closed), I began to sense movement forward. I wasn't consciously initiating this motion. It just began spontaneously, so, I went with the flow. At this point in my session, I have already dispatched of the need for physical form, I am just a point of consciousness. You can access that "form" though if it becomes necessary, as you will see later in my write up here.

 The forward motion began to speed up, but once in a while, I passed some kind of brief light or marker. I kind of perceived it like what happens when driving down a dark highway at nighttime. There are mile markers and other things that you pass by that you aren't fully consciously aware of. After while, they feel like "blips".

 The movement began to speed up, but the strange thing was, the "blips" (I will call them), began to slow down. Meaning the timing between intervals seemed to getting longer and longer. I stayed with this for a while, until I finally noticed that this I was at the "depth" that I wished to fulfill my intended goal.

 My goal was to make initial contact with .....  Part of that contract was keeping some things quiet until instructed otherwise. Hence my not saying to whom I wished contact with.

 So, I began mentally saying what I wished to say. I guess in some way, I was making some kind of "mental contract". But, I guess that wasn't enough because just then a piece of paper and pen revealed itself in front of me. That's when I put 2 + 2 together and realized that indeed some kind of "contract" was being formed. So, I began writing my part and when I was done, I signed it.

 At this point I wondered how I was going to "send" message. My hands then began forming a paper airplane out of the contract and when it was made, picked it up and tossed it forward into the darkness. This was very strange, because my mindset was that of point of consciousness that didn't need "hands" or any form. When I was writing the contract, folding it into a airplane and sending it, I didn't feel any tactile sensation at all. It didn't even "feel" like me doing it. I was in "observer mode" at that point. I watched as the plane flew forward. I didn't follow it though. To do that would have likely jumpstarted a new adventure and I was content with this one already as it was. A small flash of light appeared in the center of the darkness, the plane entered it and both were gone.

 I then returned my focus back to the just the darkness there, so I could work on some new Crystal Amplifier designs. I have some 1 inch - inch and half Quartz Crystal points that I want to incorporate into small Bonsai style tree designs. These will be the lowest priced pieces I have made yet. But I find that I really do need pieces of all different prices. I saw a new deign that I will make later tonight. If I can make what I saw, it should come out pretty good. Fingers crossed, lol!  smiley

 Now I just have to be aware in my LDs and my Phase sessions for an answer to my intent. I know it will come sooner or later. That's the way things seem to work there. You put your intent out and stay consciously aware for the answer or the result that follows.

 Here's to many successful "do(s)" or better yet, dids!  smiley  smiley  smiley

I was finally able to get some success with a set of lucid dreams the other night. Circumstances that aided my success seem a bit hilarious to me. I was feeling, shall we say, a bit full in the tummy from the weekend. Monday was a birthday for family member where I stuffed myself even more. So my stomach was working overtime during my normal bedtime and kept me from my typical deep sleep I must have. A couple hours into this uncomfortable light sleep I decide to do some simple counting along with a mantra after every count of ten. I fell asleep at some point, but during a dream, this guy comes up and says "Maybe you're dreaming," and I did a nose pinch reality check and I was still breathing! Boom, lucid. I was sooooo fricken pumped in my dream I was practically yelling to the guy THANK YOU and gave him a huge high five! It didn't last long, but each time I woke up, I kept still and fell into another dream being lucid. I had maybe 4 total little lucids and they got stranger and stranger  shocked wow! I was getting concerned I was forgetting earlier parts, so I stopped it all to write down what I could remember.  smiley

To me its hilarious that it was being so full that night that it actually kept me from going into deep sleep like normal. LOL  huh Not sure I want to replicate that scenario. Once I get lucid, I need to work on settling down and following my plan. I don't feel very conscious, so I still act out sort of like my dream self does (automatic). Onward with the doing.
