Hello all. I'm new here, and this is my first post. I'm very glad to have found this forum, and am eager to share the account of my first conscious AP a few weeks ago. I welcome and will appreciate all comments and feedback of any sort.

Sometime before dawn on 12/1/15, I laid down on my back and affirmed my intent to travel out of my body, to remember the experience, and to be aided in this process by any beings who could help. There were no vibrations present, so I began to will the vibrations, and then began to feel them in my hands. After a moment, I willed the vibrations to spread and increase, and felt them cycling through my body, though not nearly as intensely as I had felt them during previous attempts that had at first seemed more promising yet had yielded no results. But then, as had often happened during previous attempts, I began to feel sleepy and decided to abandon the attempt and surrender to sleep, and turned over onto my right side and promptly lost consciousness. I’m not sure exactly how much time had passed before I woke to feeling the vibrations again, but I found my body engulfed by them, accompanied by a loud “whooshing” sound in my ears. Before I could even ascertain what was happening, I suddenly heard a “pop” that was almost like a note or "ping" sound, accompanied by a simultaneous all-encompassing “whoosh” of “air” and felt myself rocketing forward out of my body with great force. Utilizing the momentum of my ejection, I instinctively moved upward in order to not be sucked back into my body. As I moved upward, I felt so light and so pleasantly sensitive, the fringes of my second body tingling with the tickle of the air, and felt an indescribable freedom like I’ve never (consciously) known, as if I were escaping from a form that is, in all actuality, a prison. I moved back down toward the floor in front of my bed and instinctively prayed to Yahuveh and Yahushua for protection (but not out of fear, just as a calm and joyous precaution of some sort). That’s when I noticed that everything was a fuzzy, faded black. I immediately willed my vision and saw the windows in front of the bed, and the light of early morning, and the treetops. Everything looked just as it does when seen with my physical eyes, except that the colors were almost/slightly monochromatic. Upon seeing, I was elated because, for some reason, activating my vision was an additional/greater confirmation that I had succeeded in leaving my physical body. But inherent in knowing that I had left my body was the actual thought of my body itself, and upon thinking of my body I immediately I attempted to halt all thoughts about my body because I instinctively knew that this would cause me to be drawn back into it, but it was too late, and I was sucked back in from behind. Without any lapse in awareness, I found myself back in the physical, and still on my right side, remembering that I’d fallen asleep that way, feeling overjoyed not just to have had an OBE, but to have exited the physical while on my side, as I’d heard that it was easier to achieve release while lying on one’s back. I would have been grateful for just that relatively brief OBE alone, but then, the vibrations having still been present upon my return, I heard the ping-pop and was out again, rising up blind as before. I willed my vision again, and again saw the scenery beyond my bedroom windows. At this point I lost conscious awareness of the experience (i.e. I cannot remember what happened next and don't remember returning to my body) and "woke up" later as if from regular sleep.

Upon waking I felt many things. First, I was more grateful for this experience than I have ever been for anything in my life (I am still overwhelmed with gratefulness and often spend long periods thanking the Universe and my Higher Self and my Guides for the grace and generosity that allowed for this experience, which amounts to a mantra of thousands of repeated "thank you"s; I suspect/speculate that someone/something else initiated my projection for me, as – like I mentioned above – I had given up and gone to sleep, the vibrations stilling the moment I moved). Secondly, I felt guilty – both because I felt as if I had "cheated", as I had not been trying as hard or as often as possible, and because I know that others have tried harder and more often than me with no success. I did not experience any confirmation of the existance of consciousness existing apart from the physical, because I needed no such confirmation, as I already percieved the existance of my soul as a fact. I did, however, find confirmation of the writings of Robert Monroe, such as that vision is not always or immediately automatic, and that in the "second state" thought does not precede action, as my action and intent were one, my will and my doings synced and synonymous in such a way that at first seemed baffling and conceptually wonderous upon reflection but, upon further reflection, now seems "normal" and "natural" compared to the thought-action paradigm of the physical, which, by contrast, seems crude, unnatural, and equally baffling. I am also charmed by my seeming omniscience in the out-of-body state, as I seemed to automaticaly know what to do, as I apparently experienced the totality of my Self for the first time since I began this current incarnation.

Welcome to the Pulse Whirlwind!

Thank you for that excellent description of your first conscious OBE!

Reading the first part of your experience, I actually had doubts about its veracity; it was simply too good and too exact...almost like it was collected from a series of published earlier works on the subject.

Reading the rest, I realized the genuine quality and integrity of what you were describing and I must say, you have written one of the best summaries of a first experience, including qualities and nuances of the experience that either escape most people or are nearly impossible to put into words.

Wonderfully done and thank you for that.

The feeling of gratefulness afterward was very strong for me, as well. The assistance from outside ourselves is pretty strongly suggested.

The relationship of thought/action/result is unquestionably demonstrated in ways that stretch our understanding.

Consciousness being a separate thing is obviously in demonstration. Such a cool and wonderful realization.

The "seeming omniscience" is quite apparent and eye-opening at the time, but is only a taste of what is to come...I don't think I have even gotten past the appetizers at this point, much less onto the entree...

Wonderful experience, thanks for sharing!

EscapeVelocity, thank you so much for the genuinely warm welcome smiley

I, too, found my experience to be disturbingly "cookie cutter" and even cliché – certainly not as colorful or unique (or bizarre) as other accounts that I've read here. Had I not been just as conscious – no, more conscious – than I am in my waking life, I might have wrote it off as a dream based on my research. But luckily I trust my own perceptions and I know that it was indeed real. Thank you for your kind words and sincere compliments. I'm honestly just delighted that you took the time to read my post! grin

In regards to outside assistance, I intuit that I recieved it because it was percieved by Someone that if I were not given that boost that I would have eventually given up. Now, though, I have a validating experience to further motivate my practice. I can't believe that I'm so blessed! I've still not absorbed the impact of what has happened and I feel as if I never will. How can I? Even if I never achieve another OBE, I will forever treasure and savor the precious one I've had.

Hello Whirlwind and Welcome to the Astral Pulse!

 I wanted to reply about that quote of yours above because I think you are underestimating the power of intent. The moment you picked up any book on Astral Projection, as you did with Robert Monroe's book or went to any Astral Travel related forum, you have just created a strong intent to consciously "shift". Many people report their first conscious projection coming after just simply hearing a video or like in your case picking up a book on Astral travel with the intent to not only project, but to also learn everything they can about this new "skill/Art".

 As EV said above you masterfully described in full detail what a first experience can actually be and usually is for most people. Although most people are so bewildered by the experience that they tend to lose control so fast that they really can't explain what just happened to them. Then they usually just write it off as some kind of weird dream and go on with their lives as usual.

 I experienced "outside" help as well. But only after I had my initial experience on my own. Mine came in the form of my deceased brother in law and he helped me to learn and understand how to navigate through these new realms and how important it was to passively observe everything I was seeing and soak it all in.

 Now that you have seen what can be I am sure you hunger for more. The next lesson will be to learn to be able to ground yourself in the scenario you find yourself in. Robert's books are excellent and I am sure they will help you to excel in this!

 Thank You for sharing. It's always good to hear another member's successes, especially someone new to this practice and here's to many more!  smiley

Hi Lumaza! Thank you for your reply smiley

You're so very right. I subconsciously knew the truth of what you say about the powerful role that my intent played (and is playing) in this shift in awareness, but your insight has drawn this understanding to the surface. And yes, I do hunger for more, to the extent that I'm perceiving this Space-time illusion as more illusory than ever, with an ever-growing sense that I will not directly perceive reality – or the reality of my self – until my next OBE.

Thank you for your wisdom, guidence, and encouragement. May you and all of your endeavors be blessed!!!
