Is it time to conclude the current experiment (and maybe start another?


That's okay by me too, but I 'll have one more try. Is it a large flock of flamingo's? Where a part is sitting, or walking and a part flying? All in different directions?

Greetings all. I 'revived' this oldish thread to post an alert about the API experiment. The group over at astralviewers ( www.astralviewers.com ) is starting up an experiment to visit Astral Pulse Island. So I thought that Now might be the time to renew our own efforts to visit API. That way it might be possible to cross check results with any successful projectors from astral viewers and, maybe, get some type of verification.
This would only include either travelling OOB, phasing or remote viewing API. No physical locations or computer generated images would be involved.
Anyone interested?! If so please reply here.
btw I will make my first attempt tonight.

Regards  cool

Cross-Forum-Experiment!

Now THAT'S awesome!

I added a post to my website regarding API as well: http://unlimitedboundaries.ca/2011/01/07/astral-pulse-island/

Hopefully that gets more involvement.

My coming practice sessions are going to revolve around API, I believe.  Smiley

Xanth and moondreamer. Good luck to both of you. The more people that participate the more likely it is that someone will succeed at visiting API.  See you both there!

I have been to API many times, in my visualizations. grin I'd love to go there and will also try again, but since I haven't had an OBE for a long time, sad , not a big chance.
But I won't give up.

Greetings everyone.
I wanted to inform everybody here that a member of the Astral Viewers website DID have a successful OBE/AP to API the other night!
The user name of that person is Summerlander. You can read about his OBE at www.astralviewers.com in either the OBE/AP Experiences Forum or in Summerlanders Journal in the Journals section.
And btw I am still attempting to go to API OOB but as yet have had no success. (I did have another OBE recently and that will be posted in the Out of Body Experiences Forum in a day or two.)
So a friendly reminder that if you Do have an OBE and are wondering what to do while OOB then make an attempt to reach API  smiley

Thanks for that, grey! Much appreciated! I was actually going to post my experience here. Well, here it is... grin

01/02/2011:

I was tired around 12.45am so I went to bed and fell asleep shortly after that. An unknown number rang Stacey’s mobile and I woke up. I got up, walked out of the bedroom and looked at the clock in the hallway. It was almost 3.10am and I felt primed for an OOBE. I used the toilet and went back to the bedroom. My mouth was a bit dry and I had heartburn so I took two indigestion tablets and drank some water. I stretched my limbs, rubbed my cold skin and took deep breaths before going back to bed around 4am. I lay on my back, closed my eyes, and tensed all possible muscles at the same for about half a minute before relaxing. Then I said to myself that the experience would be a positive one before I did my breathing exercises which usually help me to progressively relax.

As I felt my body getting heavier I resumed normal breathing and didn't even focus on it. I started to focus on an imagined version of the lamp in my room. I could almost see it after a while. The intrusive thoughts came many times and every time I saw that I got 'lost', I'd bring my focus back to the imagined object. Eventually, the intrusive thoughts were becoming more vivid, more life-like. I could see strange faces, places and even weird owl-faced humanoids looking at me at one point. This hypnagogic imagery captivated me and I forgot all about the imagined object. Before I pushed it all away, I remember being in a strange state for a few seconds where I saw objects that would have been familiar and made sense in the normal state of consciousness but, at that time, they didn't. I was ‘seeing’ them from a different perspective. On the other hand, that could have been some sort of lapse in logic which could have resulted from my disassociation efforts. It really is hard to describe but what I do know is that once I phased away from that perception, I sort of looked at those objects again and I thought "oh...so that is what they are" and it turned out to be furniture in a strange room.

Suddenly darkness came and I could feel my physical body laying in bed and yet I was somewhat removed from it. I heard rumbling noises and experienced strong vibrations. They felt like mobile phone vibrations or as though electricity was flowing through the body and the voltage was gradually getting higher and higher to the point where it felt like something drilling into my spine. This almost hurt but I just let it happen. The vibrational state got so strong that I perceived my 'subtle self' becoming detached from a 'dead physical weight' as though all that vibrating kerfuffle had caused them to desynchronise. It was like I was shifting away from the body axis sideways on a pivotal point and when it felt like I had reached a 45° angle, I made a conscious effort to roll over and out.

Once I was out I was partially blind. I had a kaleidoscopic or fragmented vision of being in my dark bedroom and saw the light coming from the hallway. The bedroom door was ajar as I had left it before going to bed. I went to the hallway and mentally demanded that my vision be improved. It only improved slightly and the meta-reality that appeared to surround me shimmered as though I was seeing it through hot air. I looked at the mirror and it was absolutely non-reflective. I decided to run towards it and plunge into the darkness in order to go somewhere else. I remember feeling as though I had legs and feet stomping on a hard floor before reaching the mirror. Soon, I was shifting at high speed through the dark void. I was happy with the speed and the fact that I was actually going somewhere. But then I remembered that I hadn't actually wished to go anywhere. This annoyed me while I was gliding through that darkness. I started to think of several people I could visit but couldn't make up my mind. This indecision caused me to reflect on many thoughts. I thought of many friends I could visit and started to get visual glimpses of them looking at me with smiling faces and telling me that I could do it without actually saying it.

Eventually I saw light ahead and ended up in a random place. The room was large and I felt like I was in a museum at night. Light was coming from somewhere but I couldn't quite make out where from. Vision was pristine and objects and structures around me were highly defined and yet I couldn't identify any. I came out of that room and found myself at the top of a huge stairwell. I looked down and the height was unbelievable. The size of the overly wide steps made me feel miniscule and, as I began to descend, it felt like the number of steps was infinite and I would never reach the source of light that I could clearly see coming from below. I went round the well as I went downwards in an apparent spiral making me chase the light for ages. I don't know why I couldn't go any faster or just be there. Finally, at ground level, I came to an opening where I found a beach under a clear night sky. The sea was reflecting some kind of silver light but there was no moon and the stars seemed too far away. The sand had patches of grass and I could see the dark silhouettes of what looked like palm trees in the background. As I looked away from the beach and the sea, a massive pyramid cropped into view.

I wished to be inside the pyramid and teleported to what looked like a cross between the inside of a lighthouse and a workshop. There was a man there who wore glasses and a white tunic and he was fiddling with machinery on a table. He didn't notice me and I approached him to take a closer look at what he was doing. He suddenly raised what looked like prisms in his hands and he looked at them as though he was pleased and in awe of them at the same time. He never acknowledged my presence. I thought he looked like Frank Kepple, a man who is well known in the “astral projection” communities online for having simplified Robert Monroe’s focus model of reality. I wondered if it was him. I then found myself somewhere else which looked like a temple and I met other characters. This is where it gets vague. I know that a lot more happened but by that time the experience turned into a stubborn dream hell-bent on pushing me towards unconsciousness. The memory of its details escape me now.

It's funny how I remember the stuff that happened before so well because it is as though my long-term memory is better than my short-term memory when OOBEs turn into dreams. I woke up feeling cold and thought about the experience for a while before going back to sleep. This is a possible random visit to the Astral Pulse Island which is why I also posted the story in the link below in a slightly different manner:

Summerlander, Hallo !
Yeah, no problem and I hope you like it here at AP and stay here a long time.
The API experiment has alternating periods of interest/activity and no activity. Unfortunately it is currently a period of little interest/activity. In fact you are probably the only person to have visited API in any way (OBE/AP, phase, remote view, etc) in nearly half a year. Maybe your recent success will inspire others to try. Anyway I am still keen to do it and will post any experiences IF I am able to get there.
