I have a very strong feeling, this woman was either in a coma currently still here on Earth or was somehow Dreaming or something. I don't feel like this woman was Retrieved for a after life purpose. I feel that for some reason that giant cabinet stood for a entrance back to a Physical life. At least this is what resonate in me, doesn't make sense, but a gut feeling tells me I am right.
I also realised that maybe we should define the framework of 'retrieval' a bit broader. It could also mean helping living people who are stuck in a life situation or seriously sick people (so it's also healing, in a way). I've had a 'retrieval' experience with a former childhood buddy about whom I found out later he's not dead yet but that he is chronically ill, he also lost a lot of weight and that was exactly how I saw him in the helping experience without knowing this before and it was confirmed later (= a little validation if you will).

I agree with this statement Volgerie. I just couldn't fathom the thought at first that this person could be still alive in this Retrieval. I had never experienced one like that before. But, now that I have, it has broadened my horizons on the term Retrievals.

The spider and the shrouded members surrounding me were likely some kind of fear test.

 I haven't tried to Phase for about a month. For that matter, the whole thing could have been a test. Just to see if I still attained by ability to keep focus, no matter what was going on. You really have to be fully aware to do a Retrieval, you need to keep thinking on your toes. You never really experience the same thing twice, so you have to be quick witted. They can be very challenging at times.

 Thank you for sharing!  smiley

This topic will be just for Retrievals. I haven't had the chance to read Bruce Moen's or the Monroe Institutes's information on them. I started having them last year purely by coincidence and we know there is no such thing as coincidence. Nothing makes you feel better inside then experiencing one of these. I have now, including today had 10 of these. One of them I am convinced was to retrieve me. We would love to hear your adventures with this as well. I will start with an incedible one I had today.
 Upon awakening this morning, I went to the bathroom, got a drink of water, then went back to bed. I put out the intent to do a retrieval. So, I closed my eyes and started telling myself over and over again "let's do a retrieval". I just laid there noticing the blackness before my eyes, the blackness then went to the 3D stage and the next thing I knew a dark land mass started to take shape. It was a gloomy area, the land was pure black and in front of me there were pools of red water/lava. I thought it was water or goo because I didn't see or sense heat or smoke coming from them. I walked for a couple of feet, then came across one pool that had an upside down doll in the center of it. I waded through the red goo and got to doll. The doll's head was under the red goo, but the body was coming out, so I pulled the legs and freed it. I then realized this was my task and it was going to be a tough one. I could feel the abuse, the pain that this soul had in it. There was no facial features on the doll at all. No mouth, hair, nose, ears, no clothing, it was totally bare. I stared at the doll and a thought came to my mind, the next thing I know I am in a little girl's room with the doll. I hand the doll to the little girl. She hugs it right away. I sat down with the little girl we will call her Shelly. We decided to rebuild this doll, so we gave her hair first, then beautiful blue eyes with long eyelashes, a nose, ears, then we put a mouth on her and tried to get it to smile, but it wasn't ready for that yet. So, we settled on a slit for the mouth and gave her some cute dimples. Now I am a male, 48 years of age, so this was really difficult for me. Not to the fact of helping, but knowing what to do. The next thing we did is to decide what kind of clothing she would have. Of course Shelly picked a pink tutu with ribbons in her hair. Once we were done with the doll, we created a table, for tea paraties, a giant doll house with all the fixings.
 Shelly loved her new friend, she brushed her hair all the time, had tea parties, slept with her, she treated her like gold. I needed to intensify this effect, so I created scenes where little boys came in and well boys will be boys, so they wanted to mess with her doll, but Shelly would have nothing to do with that. She defended her new friend like an armored guard.
 Finally after what seemed to be months, the doll started to change. First was the eyes, life all of a sudden appeared in them. Then it was the feet, then the legs, body, arms, hands. A twinkle of the nose happened, the ears wiggled, then came the mouth. The slit finally turned into a smile. She then looked at us and said her name was Janice. and it was time to go.
 She then jumped on my back, said good bye to Shelly and we were off. I saw that we were about to land on the "Island", I call it this because this is where all of my Retrievals seem to end up. As usual, people were standing in the streets, as if we were a "parade float" and clapping, We were traversing the path to salvation, I call this walk. The huge white cathedral looking building was just ahead of us. The "Welcoming Committee", I call them, came out see us. We climbed up the stairs to them, they then took hold of Janice's hands and started to walk through the doorway, I think this is some kind of portal. Janice broke free of them, ran back to me and gave me a big hug. Then it was over.
 I want to reiterate again, there is no feeling in this world as good as you feel when you help someone in the Astral or Wider Reality. Today I am floating on cloud nine. My heart feels like it has grown.
 On this site we learn to experience the wider reality. It is time that we try to go further. There are so many lost souls to be found over there. We need more of us to learn how to do this and I feel that learning this is as easy as creating an intent to do it. I do not share a lot of my Phasing sessions here, I have been told that I can help people to experience it, but that what I see is for me, it's personal. But I am allowed to share all the Retrievals I like with all. I would love to hear yours.
 Thank you!

Wow, Lion.
That experience sounds quite profound. Very beautiful and changing. You weren't creeped out by the doll at first? You must be brave.
 I came upon your story, from the shadow beings thread. It is interesting that you saw these hooded figures before having this experience. I wonder what they really are. Smiley
But well done. That was a very nice thing you did.

 Like I said, I think the Spider and shrouded/hooded entities were kind of a "Welcome back to Phasing" fear test. Just to see how I reacted and if I was ready to move on.

 The Doll in that one Retrieval was freaky and took me by surprise. But I realized I was in an area where almost anything goes per say. I try to prepare myself ahead of time to witness anything that shows itself, but not to react to it too much as that would end the scenario.

 This technique here helps with that immensely:  http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/practice_but_practice_what-t39372.0.html

 You stay with whatever vision shows itself to you, no matter how strange it is. You ALLOW it to develop and then let your curiosity boost your awareness!  smiley

The comment on some of the people being 'helped' could still be alive just reminded me of an experience while cycling to work
I posted an experience recently where I helped several young people into a safe location from a derelict abode where they were trying to survive. The place was made from streets that I knew just jumbled up somewhat.
In this experience one young girl in particular did most of the communicating.
I saw her waiting outside the local school gates one morning last week. An absolute double. She looked at me and smiled the same smile I saw in the experience. It caught me by surprise. I smiled back very tempted to see if she was named Olivia. I didn't though, the smile was enough.
Very strange...

I feel that the Cathedral Island may be of my design, the first place I ever arrived when learning to travel was a beautiful beach scene. I used this as my "Safe Zone" or "Launching Pad" whenever I attempted to AP. But, I never had seen the Cathedral Building there or even the "parade route" that I am constantly walking down that leads to the Cathedral Building.
 I don't really know that much about Monroe's Focus 27. I read Frank Kepple's Focus Levels and prefer those.
 The "Retrievers" are always the same, dressed completely in white. Sometimes depending on the severity of the person they will have a stretcher to aide someone having problems walking. This happened during a war scene retrieval I had before.
 Yes, it is always the same once the person climbs on my back, I see the Island from above. I am flying towards it.
 This is my War Retrieval from July 4/2011
 I just finished an afternoon session. I guess I have passed my school stage for now, since I haven't seen anything recently that resembled my school anymore. I thought I would post my new experience here. This was the most incredible thing I have seen or done in the Astral.
 I started my session as normal, just kind of phasing and observing. I imagined seeing beautiful fireworks in the sky, since we are getting close to the 4th of July here in the United States and fireworks are everywhere. I was weird though because due to my ailment I have not gone to see the fireworks live for about 10 or 12 years. They were incredibly vivid. So, I started seeing beautiful colors exploding everywhere, the next thing i knew I was in the middle of a war zone. There were cannons shooting everywhere, bullets flying. I looked over to my right and there was a young man, he was badly wounded and bleeding. I went to him immediately and told him he didn't need to be here. I told him there was a place where there is total peace. I then threw him on my shoulders and flew away. The next thing I know we are in front of this beautiful white building (cathedral like), I walk up a number of steps, but it is tiring. I then remember I can fly, so I fly up to the top of the stairs. There is a platform there, suddenly a number of people converge from inside that building, (I take it they are nurses, they are all dressed in white). They take him off my shoulders and put him on a stretcher, then he is gone.
 Now I am not a soldier and do not like war. This man had to be in his early 20's. He was thin, blonde short curly hair. The thing that was really strange was, I could actually feel a tear going down my face in the physical when I saw him lying there against that rock. After this entire scene played out, I went back to the war zone and disabled a couple of tanks by tying their turrets into nice big bows. This whole scene seemed like I had been there for hours. When I came back to the physical I realized I was only gone 1 hour.
 I know there is a reason that all of us are waking up to the Astral World now. I don't believe in coincidence. I also know that everyone travels in their sleep. But, I believe the people that have been chosen to do this awake is for a reason a bigger purpose. I am not an incredibly spiritual person, but I do believe everything happens for a reason. Whatever it may be, I am honored to be one with this ability.




I think I have seen this cathedral!!!!! Tall white steeple in design. The inside is dark with lots of stained glass. I also recall seeing an alter in the middle of the room. Smiley This was something I saw wayyyyyy back when I jest started practicing.

It seems like I have programed my consciousness somehow, maybe even by an accident, to be so attuned to the astral once I exit, that sometimes I question if I have died, because I don't return for a long time no matted what extremes I may encounter LOL
Ive thought I might have died before during AP especially when I had one in hospital! LOL

I have also been in the position where I decided I wasn't coming back, but I was told to and made to LOL

I have yet to do a retrieval but its definitely something I'm open to in the future.  One of my very first experience in the astral may have been a retrieval.  I found myself out of my body and met with two guides by my bed. One of the guide began telling about an third entity approaching my room.  It was an orb circling my room. I was told it was a man that had committed suicide.  At that point I was ready to jam! lol  I had wonder why this orb was there and why the guides there also.

 I have been keeping many of my Retrieval scenarios to myself for quite a while now, but this one is the most bizarre and involves an entire community or perhaps another civilization. I haven't quite figured it out yet.

 It happened last weekend while I was staying a Motel, while away doing a Renaissance Faire.

 I awoke and found myself with 100% conscious awareness in a Lucid Dream. I have had many Retrievals from a waking consciousness awareness, while Phasing, but my most unique ones seem to come from awaking in a Dream.

 In this one I was a visitor to a unique civilization that was being rules by a powerful King. He was a ruthless King to boot. He constantly set his people up with all kinds of challenges, knowing they would fail. That was basically his form of entertainment.

 I could see that the body I was using at the time was incredibly huge, as in muscular, almost Herculean.

This King had a huge machine that everyone knew about. This machine was a test of sorts, but if anyone could dismantle this machine, then it would free everyone on the planet from this oppressor's grip. He built it with many levels, almost layers of tests.

 Many people tried to dismantle it, but failed, to this King's liking. The layers challenged a person in every way you could challenge someone. But, all the people that attempted never even put a dent into the machine. Once an attempt stopped, the machine would restore itself to the very beginning again and the person that attempted to destroy it, would like either perish or live their lives with the failure of not being able to do it.

 I came into this area and made many friends. These were great fun loving people.

 One day, I bore witness to this King's lust for disorder and destruction. It was in some kind of Casino or gaming room and he was having people lashed with barbed wire for his entertainment. I couldn't believe it, he forced the people of his community to witness this as well.

 He traveled all over his planet and just played with people and their lives, emotions etc.

 Well, what I saw in that casino sickened me. Then the next day he was performing public torture sessions in the cities or town's square. One thing I found is it was really hard for me to discern just how big this place was. Was it a town, a community, a city a plant? It was huge and it had a large population, that's all I could tell for sure.

 After witnessing days and days of this torture I said I have seen enough and decided to act.

 I immediately went to the machine and began to dismantle it. The machine or metal box looked to be about 10 ft high by 8 ft wide. I figured it can't be that hard to destroy. So I began taking pieces of sheet metal off  of it in layers. For every layer I took off, two more mysteriously replaced it. This went on for hours and I still didn't even make a dent in it.

 A small group of people was beginning to take notice and surrounded me. I kept to the task though. Hours later I started to see that for each layer I took off, only one would grow back. I could see also that the King had spotters watching  me and my very small progress.

 A few of the people watching would go periodically and grab me some food and drinks. But I stayed at the task at hand.

 Finally after what seemed like two days of constant struggle dismantling the machine I finally came to the point where I could take a layer off and nothing replaced it.

 I also noticed that the crowd had grown much larger now. People seemed to be showing more emotion and faith that maybe, just maybe someone could finally break through the barriers.

 Now, I finally got to the core of the machine. This is when the challenge changed from physical muscle abilities to mental tests.

 A screen had opened up on the machines face and I was challenged with word problems, math problems etc. Now, I am not the most intelligent person around and these problems were a bit more than I could solve myself. But one by one, different members of the crowd would approach me and help me solve the problems. They could do this because these problems had something to do with their current profession in the King's kingdom.

 We went through this for a couple of days. Now the crowd was enormous, every time we solved another problem or equation, they roared with applause.

 Finally we got through this level of challenges, then I got to find the next level of the machine. This level had to do with emotion.

 The King was now there and he seemed to be enjoying this all. He had an army of men there as well.

 His men grabbed 5 of the spectators and put a gun to their heads. The King then asked me if I wish to go any further. If I did, that meant  that these 5 people would be poisoned with a lethal poison and that I had 2 hours to find the antidote. I agreed and his men poisoned the 5 people, I then set the cure.

 I returned back about a while later with the cure. I had to go hunting a deadly animal barehanded, kill it and then extract the antidote. I definitely was not enjoying this part of the challenge, but I need to help these people at all costs.

 Then I woke up. All day long this problem plagued me. Could I do this any longer? Did I want to back into this scene again? I knew that this King's thirst for torture was high. But what was he going to do next?

 Well, that night, I awoke in the same scenario, luckily I was close to where I had left off. I did have to replay a bit of what I did, but I knew how to handle it, because I lived it the day before.

 His thirst for torture was savage and he kept using innocent members of the crowd as his targets. But, I found that I now immediately awaken for real, once I have completed one task.

 This began 4 nights ago and now I am on my 3rd night of challenges.

 I will see it through. Reading this you are liking saying. Why don't you just kill the King or end it in another way, since thought = action.

 My answer is because I have to "play the game" per say as it's supposed to. I have tried to just end it quickly and found myself back in it immediately again.

 This shows me there a rules. I just don't know how far I can go. This King will stop at nothing to keep me from freeing these people.

 I have a feeling that Szaxx and a few of the other members here have been challenged similar to this as well.

 Szaxx you have told me in the past to wait until you finally begin doing Retrievals on large groups. Well I am now there and am seeing that this is indeed a whole new level.

 Thank You.

You're welcome,
Things progress far more than this too. I'll not spoil the fun too much.
This one sounds typical. You've so many things to do and get in rhe correct order too. Nothing can be missed or you will not get past the set challenge.
The poison test is so familiar, you had 2 hours. Imagine if they were young children and only 1 hour, these get more intense and the odds are stacked against you.
I can wager a large sum that time is so precious a commodity, you don't have enough and this plays on your mind too. A distraction we live with in this physical so we can work with it readily.
You have attained the trust of the people. That is an absolutely massive advantage. You will not see it and I can't interfere with the quest. It will come exactly when you need it. Youll understand later if not already clear.
The king, show no bad feelings, understand his actions as an illness. Anything negative is doubled, you've took the machine to pieces with some doubt, not good as you found out. As you continued irrespective of the apparent actions resulting from your attempt to dismantle it. Your mindset changed. Remember the change, its so subtle, use this as the king can't see it in you.
The kings intimidation failed as you took the distraction of barehand combat, the poison was to work on your mind. Think very carefully on your physical reality. You were supposed to fail with the tactile action.
If you stop this you'll also stop some aspect of self. Carry on and win.
I can't get involved yet, it's your battle.

They are a different kettle of fish. These do awaken something in you that you never knew was there. Its the juniors playground at present by the way. The seniors is another level totally, don't worry though, this transformation is far harder for one reason. Unfortunately you have to work it out.

Congrats for getting this  far successfully.

 I had a feeling you would understand what I was talking about.

 Just hearing your opinion and advice makes a difference.

 I can see this adventure/quest is going to take a long time before it comes to a finale.

 Last night I was shown bit and pieces of the challenge ahead. I was not taking on the machine in a physical sense.

 I was shown how it came to be and watched as others failed the task.

 But I shall see it through!  wink

Lionheart: Thanks for sharing this latest experience. I've never seen anything quite like this. I have experienced some powerful and crafty astral entities holding back large groups of energy fragments (personalities) from returning Home by convincing them that they are already in "Heaven." Some of them are powerful enough to essentially trap me for several days. Best of luck breaking through and helping out the natives.

 I posted this in a recent LD thread created by Lightbeam and felt it suited this thread as well.

 I have found out myself lately that Retrievals are not necessarily achieved completely in one night.

 When I first started having them, they were solved quickly. One night's LD or one Phase Session was all it took.

 Now I am experiencing them, but it takes several nights to "fix" or "find" a solution to said problem.

 I am currently on night 12 of a very challenging one myself.

 At first I had to bear witness to the entire problem. After viewing it for days on end, I was then ALLOWED to interact with it.

 I am patient, so I will do what I must to see this through.

 The more you learn, the more you find you are being challenged even further.

 Hmm, that sounds just like it is in this Physical Reality as well. Figure that, lol!  grin

Was this the start of a retrieval ?

So iv never done one before, But I'm SUPER keen and iv been reading a lot about them on here lately so its fresh in my mind.

Ill try not to go into too much detail  tongue

This morning i was attempting to have an Obee, As soon as i gave up and rolled over it appeared i had just phased to a large one story old type house.

There was a huge long room at the end of the house with around 15 beds set all the way along with french door like windows to outside all the way along it,
I strolled down past the beds and veered left and found another hallway with some large rooms set off to the sides, I instantly got pulled towards the one on the right and had the knowing this is the room i need to enter to start my voyage on my retrieval.

I also had another instant thought like message and it said to me "Only enter this room once" ...? This really intrigued me now and i just NEW this is where i needed to go, So in i went cautiously at the start as it was very cluttered filled with bookshelf's and old tables and trinkets (This room especially, But the entire house had a very vintage old cottage style to it).

As i walked further into the room i noticed a small figure standing of an old lady but it looked to be a fake stuffed life size doll, As i got within a few feet it awoke and i was shown her true identity, She suddenly turned very real and walked to her desk.

She was a witch.. I found this funny but kept going with it, She was a very small lady with your text book witch like appearance, She said welcome, And i said hi how are you? She didn't really reply she was very limited to her words.. It was kind of strange. But anyways i had to pay her so i gave her an Australian 5 dollar note, She excepted and gave me 3 token like chips, They almost looked like poker chips.

I said thank you and have a nice day, She replied you must go and pointed but wasn't rude about it, Just limited to her wording again, I understood and gave her the thumbs up cheesy

I walked out the room and went down the hallway and had a knowing that i needed to ask "Take me to where i need to go" to start this voyage.

I was about to say it but i just wanted to have quick look in a few other rooms as this place was really cool! There was so much vintage stuff everywhere!

I went in to a small room it was very vibrant and had some indoor plants and cool paintings and lamp shades, I started to read all the writing on this one Japanese scroll like thing hanging on the wall, It was all so interesting and was VERY clear and focused, I was having a blast! Hah grin

But i new i should probably go and start this retrieval that i was meant to be doing, Well this is the slight knowing i had, Im pretty certain i was about to set off to help someone but suddenly i lost my grip on the reality and woke up .. Sad

I was bummed! But i managed to get back but appeared in a new room but new i was still in the same house, I felt i had to get back to the witch so i asked "Take me back to the witches room". (This was cool) I started to float up and went only just through the ceiling and into a void i guess you would call it full of electricity like photons.. ? It was all buzzing and looked like dense electric strikes but they were blue, Very strange never experienced this in the astral.

Almost looked like a game of some sort where you would die then it would put all the photons back together and phase you back to life somewhere, It then moved me slightly over to the right i could see the top of the room i just left in my peripheral.

I smoothly floated down ever so nicely and i was just outside the witches room whom gave me the tokens, I watched her from the outside with someone else but had the knowing not to enter the room as i was told before only to enter once. I felt i should just enjoy this experience anyways and cruised around a few other rooms but it didn't last too much longer and woke up again.

So. Im guessing this was going to be a retrieval ? Is this how it can start ?

Im pretty devastated that i didn't get to pursue it or that i didn't do it straight away, But exited that maybe ill get to start from where i left next time..? Or have i missed the boat..?

Iv been having trouble to hold onto my Obee's lately.. I REALLY need help grounding myself when there, They always end way too quick Sad

Cheers for reading.

 It sounds like the onset of a Retrieval.

 But even if it wasn't, it's still a fantastic NPR experience.

 You have the right intent, so favorable results will follow.

 When I first had mine, I didn't even know it was Retrieval or for that fact, I didn't even know what a Retrieval was.

 I was just in my learning mode and that's one of the things I was taught.

 Mind you, I still haven't left that "learning mode" yet. I see anew almost every time I Phase or LD.

Was this the start of a retrieval ?

So iv never done one before, But I'm SUPER keen and iv been reading a lot about them on here lately so its fresh in my mind.

This is how it started for me. I read about the retrievals that others had and was a bit envious to be honest. The idea of helping someone like this just instantly resonated with me and I wanted to help.

I'm inclined to believe that this probably was the start of a retrieval. Not because of anything in particular but more so because our intuition during OOBE are exceptional. So I would trust your gut feeling. On the other hand, we can be completely misled even in the presence of a guide if they believe there is a more valuable lesson.

Some retrievals can take many experiences to figure out while others can be done almost instantly. I believe we are chosen specifically for what we can personally bring to the table. Someone else may have done hundreds of retrievals yet they may not have the particular insight that you have to offer and therefore you may be more properly suited.

Don't waste time feeling devastated. Like our resident retriever expert Szaxx always says, "Failure is not an option." If this truly is a retrieval, you will return and get the job done. It can be difficult for others to figure this out for you since you were the one chosen to get it done based on what you have to offer. But please share more with us. Success is elating and I'm a junkie for these!

I have never yet experienced a retrieval in 30 years. it's not a problem.. I just can't take part in these threads and feel a little left out.  cheesy

My true function in this evades me... yet I am happy nonetheless grin

I have never met someone whom I love and has past that wasn't just a thought form of mine. One of my best friends died about two years ago and many people rumored that it was suicide. At the time I believed this was very damning and I was consumed for months with trying to contact him but to no avail.

I think there are several reasons why I never did reach him, a couple being that he may not have wanted me to and another is that I may have had the wrong intentions but I don't feel this is so with some others that I wanted to reach.

The experience that you wrote about when you saw your mother was one of the most touching since I am a mama's boy.

Another experience that I have always wanted but have yet to have is a meeting with God/Source/Creator.

We don't always get what we want but if we try, sometimes we get what we need. Thank You Mr. Jagger.

Thanks Lion Smiley

@ its_all_bad - I was the same very envious of others doing retrievals, Mainly as you say i really want to help people, And what a fun way to go about it!

Plus there would be nothing worse than being stuck somewhere! Whether in the NPR or in our physical reality, I would hope that someone would help me so i want to help the others!

I too believe it was the start of a retrieval, Like you say the intuition side let me no, I new what was about to happen.

Love that about the NP, The knowing is ever so great!

Whether it be a lesson or a retrieval I'm ready and cant wait to get stuck in, As fun as roaming around in the NPR is i REALLY would rather help, Learn, And Grow from my experiences.

Thanks for the kind words people, I no ill be back soon and ill be sure to share my experiences Smiley

Was this the start of a retrieval ?

So iv never done one before, But I'm SUPER keen and iv been reading a lot about them on here lately so its fresh in my mind.

Ill try not to go into too much detail  tongue

This morning i was attempting to have an Obee, As soon as i gave up and rolled over it appeared i had just phased to a large one story old type house.

There was a huge long room at the end of the house with around 15 beds set all the way along with french door like windows to outside all the way along it,
I strolled down past the beds and veered left and found another hallway with some large rooms set off to the sides, I instantly got pulled towards the one on the right and had the knowing this is the room i need to enter to start my voyage on my retrieval.

I also had another instant thought like message and it said to me "Only enter this room once" ...? This really intrigued me now and i just NEW this is where i needed to go, So in i went cautiously at the start as it was very cluttered filled with bookshelf's and old tables and trinkets (This room especially, But the entire house had a very vintage old cottage style to it).

As i walked further into the room i noticed a small figure standing of an old lady but it looked to be a fake stuffed life size doll, As i got within a few feet it awoke and i was shown her true identity, She suddenly turned very real and walked to her desk.

She was a witch.. I found this funny but kept going with it, She was a very small lady with your text book witch like appearance, She said welcome, And i said hi how are you? She didn't really reply she was very limited to her words.. It was kind of strange. But anyways i had to pay her so i gave her an Australian 5 dollar note, She excepted and gave me 3 token like chips, They almost looked like poker chips.

I said thank you and have a nice day, She replied you must go and pointed but wasn't rude about it, Just limited to her wording again, I understood and gave her the thumbs up cheesy

I walked out the room and went down the hallway and had a knowing that i needed to ask "Take me to where i need to go" to start this voyage.

I was about to say it but i just wanted to have quick look in a few other rooms as this place was really cool! There was so much vintage stuff everywhere!

I went in to a small room it was very vibrant and had some indoor plants and cool paintings and lamp shades, I started to read all the writing on this one Japanese scroll like thing hanging on the wall, It was all so interesting and was VERY clear and focused, I was having a blast! Hah grin

But i new i should probably go and start this retrieval that i was meant to be doing, Well this is the slight knowing i had, Im pretty certain i was about to set off to help someone but suddenly i lost my grip on the reality and woke up .. Sad

I was bummed! But i managed to get back but appeared in a new room but new i was still in the same house, I felt i had to get back to the witch so i asked "Take me back to the witches room". (This was cool) I started to float up and went only just through the ceiling and into a void i guess you would call it full of electricity like photons.. ? It was all buzzing and looked like dense electric strikes but they were blue, Very strange never experienced this in the astral.

Almost looked like a game of some sort where you would die then it would put all the photons back together and phase you back to life somewhere, It then moved me slightly over to the right i could see the top of the room i just left in my peripheral.

You actually left the room going into the others. The distractions are massive in number as you found out. This could have been a retrieval easily but you failed the second test. The .
Distractions will make you fail and you fell for it unfortunately. The first test was not to enter the room again. You did this with flying colours. That is important. You will get another chance and more tests of your dedication will be provided. Be ready for them, the scene will be very different and you may not even recognise it.
It appears the guidelines are based on your ability to not drop out in any way. Be dedicated to the cause and you'll be successful.
Tricky tests will start the experience. These are normal.

Its so obvious to me now you point them out! Dam! I don't like failing.. I new i should of taken off straight away, But the place i appeared to set off from had obviously been staged in a way to intrigue and distract me and see how much i really wanted to do the retrieval.

I will be more on the ball next time and keep to the task in hand, Not letting anything get in my way!

Iv got what it takes guides, Lets try again tonight hey!  smiley
