Hello all

Let's kick this one into touch again, shall we?

Firstly - here are the various ways to get there...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.  OBE Projection

This can be via an RTZ OBE (Real Time Zone).  The way I would suggest getting to the Island from the RTZ is via a door/window or creating a doorway with your fingers (if you can't find one).  As you go through the door, state your intention to be on the Island when you get through.  This should work, although I did find recently that I needed to go through two doors before the first environment changed.

2.  Astral Projection

If you find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings, then it could be termed that you have landed in the astral, by-passing the RTZ.  Again, to get to the Island use the methods as outlined in 1.

3.  Lucid Dream

From a lucid dream, follow the same steps as before.  The door/window is not absolute - if you fancy flying through a portal/dimension, then this should work too - I think the more important factor is to state your intention.

4.  Dream

If you find yourself on an Island, this might trigger lucidity - however if you dream of a visit to an Island (even if it is a non-lucid dream), it's worth adding your experience.

5.  Meditation

However you choose to meditate - if you visualize/visit an Island with a great big pyramid in the middle of it - let us know!  smiley

6.  Imagination

I tend to do something that I call 'focused daydreaming' which is similar to Bruce Moen's 'focused attention'.  My method is to sit quietly and relax, but I don't have to go deep.  Earplugs and eyemask are helpful, but not vital.

Mentally, I will imagine myself at the Island and let the scenario unfold.  I control it to a point.  This is the crux.  If you drift, you may find all sorts of 'nonsense' things happening, such as huge pink bunny rabbit hopping over to meet you.  This is akin to the more silly dreamy aspects of a dream, and you will want to avoid them.  If this happens, gently remove the bunnies and continue where you were. 

However, you may find that you are walking along towards the pyramid and someone will appear in your field of vision to the left.  This may have not been in "your script".  This is where you will want to keep alert and see what happens, whilst still having that small element of control, in case it gets silly again.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Of all the above methods, the best to use (imo) is Imagination because you are practically guaranteed to reach the Island.  For all those doubting the power of imagination - try it out.  Write everything down, your emotions, the colours you saw, the clothes you/others wore and so on.  Then add it to this thread and who knows - we may find that some of our posts are very similar.  What's there to lose?  wink

Now for the date.

Seems obvious to me - Wednesday 31st October 2007.  Anytime during that day.  Don't worry about time differences - it doesn't seem to matter.

Any questions, feel free to ask.  Good luck everyone - I'll surely be there using my imagination, but I promise to leave my broomstick behind!!  tongue

The next visit will be sometime in November - at a date to be confirmed.

Selski, thanks for the list of tips.

I think that I tend towards the imagination, phasing, meditation method.   smiley

I missed your post for Oct, so I'll check in for Nov.

thanks.

Selski -
I've tried meditating on API surrounded by a huge swirling energy vortex (portal/stargate). Unfortunately I have yet to astral project or RTZ OBE to the island. huh
A couple of times I did have some interesting visuals while meditating-- like a large opening in one side of the pyramid about 2/3 of the way up.

BTW where do you consider Astral Pulse Island to be located?
Is this a Belief System Territory (albeit a very small one)?

Eh, Greytraveller,

while waiting for Selski's reply,

your question reminds me of a post by Kiwibonga with an interesting diagram relating to theory about the location of API

http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_experiences/what_does_the_astral_plane_look_like-t25249.0.html;msg212172#msg212172

I asked if he was interested in publishing the diagram in finished graphics, but no reply.

I like the simplicity and makes sense to me for some reason.

Hi all

Ooooh, I've never thought about where it is.  It's just "out there".  grin

 I like Kiwibonga's concepts and generally agree with them. The one comment that I need to make is this. There is a difference beween ideating (thinking) and creating (making.) IMHO too much importance is put on simply 'thinking' about something while out of body. Yes it is possible to think thought forms into being. But that really is not creating anything that is lasting or important.
In my 'model' there are 10 separate and distinct "states of consciousness". they are -
sleep without dreams,
sleep with dreams,
false awakenings,
normal 'everyday waking' consciousness,
hypnangogia (includes meditation, trance and psi),
lucidity,
psychedelia,
out of body,
magickal
and Nirvana/Godhead/Samadhi.

The ability to correctly perceive reality increases with each successive state of consciousness. In effect each state of consciusness transcends those before and, in turn, is transcended by those 'above' it. The best visual I can offer is concentric globes inside each other. Of course that is a 3 dimensional visualization of a 4 + dimensional concept, but trust that you get the idea.
Hope this was not confusing or too off topic.

Managed to do a long and deep meditation on Astral Pulse Island last night. Here are some visuals and impressions that I picked up --
- a loading dock or storage area of some kind.
- a young man in a uniform like a bellhop or waiter or usher.
- waves of extreme heat. The heat waves were really strong and had a lot of energy behind them.

Also I sensed some confusion about the location itself. This may be explained by the fact that I drew up my own plans for API that included a large library and a spacious park. Of course these were never included in the final 'construct' of API but maybe my subconscious was playing tricks on me.
In any event my hypnagogic state was at times very deep and the visuals were quite clear. Are any of these visuals familiar to anyone???

Are you sure enough people are interested in API? I mean, once I'm finally able to get out of body, getting to the island is in my top 3 list of things to do. But it doesn't seem to me that a lot of other people feel that way. Hey, I hope I'm wrong though. I love the idea of a place where projectors from all over the world can meet up anytime they want. lol, brings to mind that other post about this website being a cult.

WE SHOULD GET UNIFORMS!!!

...uh, sorry. Random moment of excitement.

Seriously though. API t-shirts, anyone?

I think it's better to focus on the idea of the API rather than a specific location. Seeings how it is non-existent in a physical reality, and it's hard to give directions in the astral ("Sub-level 1 then take a left... no your other left!").

No I'm not sure at all. 

I don't know whether it's a lack of interest, or people are afraid to use their imagination and feel that they have to have a traditional OBE to get there.

Either way, I don't think it's worth my while to continue.  If anyone wants to do something privately, perhaps a small group of us attempting to meet, then let me know.  We can arrange it via PMs.

I'll give everyone two weeks from now to contact me via PM if you are interested.  It doesn't have to be the Island either - we could arrange to meet at any recognised landmark.

:-/ As soon as I can start succesfully APing, I'll love to get a group to meet up there. This website has been a huge help to me, and I'd love to give something back to it.

Hi,

When refering to this archive, on the subject of F27 places, including posts by Ginny, Adrian, and Frank, they discuss the creation of personal locations that remain intact in the astral, can be built, modified, and a place that others can visit.

http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/focusing_attention_within_and_my_f27_place-t2595.0.html;msg16924#msg16924

Is API a personal location aready established by someone and a place to meet?

Or is the idea, as mentioned in the API thead, that the location will be created by many people thinking concurrently about this place?

A place where people with compatable vibrations can build and add to the location, and return to review the effort?

 - Greytraveller,
Thanks for describing your 10 states of consciousness.
Do you include phasing and RTZ experiences in the OBE state?
Cheers.......

I believe it's the latter. It's one thing to create your own personal space, but then how do others enter that space? When was the last successful attempt where at least two people visited the API similtaneously?

Finally got around to watching the 3d animation masterpiece directed by Otomo Katsuhiro, with the very unassuming tile, STEAMBOY.

A retro-future sci-fi visualization of 19th century England with spectacular graphic recreations of Manchester and London..

The point I'm getting to is that the project took 7 years to accomplish.

The API project can easily go on for 20 years.

I think that people who expect to just switch the channel, or click the load button to be instantly entertained will be instantly bored with the effort and just say , "oh, I thought "everyone" forgot about it."

Has anyone here seen documentation of a similar effort?  If so, it might help save trying to reinvent the wheel.

Yes, I would include both the RTZ and Phasing as "sublevels" of the Out of Body state of consciousness.
"Sublevels" is not really a good description but I hope you get my idea here. An example would be the Hypnogogic state of consciousness where "sublevels" include meditation, trance, hypnosis and subliminal autosuggestion (amoung others).
