Hello,

I have admired this site from a visitors point of view since August now and I love everything I have read thus far, not only is the material here entertaining and inspiring, everyone seems positive and helpful. It seems like the members here really care about each other and their spiritual growth.

I had my first Astral Projection OOBE in September. I tried some of Buhlman's techniques. Specifically the thirty minute meditation for thirty days one. I tried to meditate around the same time each day and used affirmations and visualization techniques during meditation times. I woke up things within me that I thought were only possible with drugs. But my first OOBE experience did not happen until I was sleeping around 20 days in the 30 day meditation. I caught myself dreaming which used to be almost never for me now I lucid dream a few times a week. Anyways I gave the command "awareness now"once I realized I was dreaming and dream quickly vaporized and I awoke in SP. Wow, was that some scary excrement. I did the roll out technique and was shocked that it actually worked, shocked and very very frightened. I heard strange noises, it sounded like a child screaming and adults talking right outside my house. I also felt like something was watching me and couldn't see anything. So after a few seconds out I freaked out and returned to my body, but I remained in SP for what seemed like forever.

After a few more experiences like this one I've decided to stop for a while until I work through that fear. My motivation for wanting to project is for the thrill of it and I wish to get in touch with my higher self.

 Hello and Welcome to the Astral Pulse, Justintime!  smiley

 I have been listening to William Buhlman on Youtube.com quite a bit lately and really enjoy his non nonsense approach to AP. I enjoy hearing many Authors take on Astral projection. Some I agree with, some seem to have the concept right, but then they tend to go into "left field" and start bringing Religion and Fear scenarios into it. It's funny, most people that seem to fight Demons in the NPR (Non Physical Realms/Reality), are the same people that feel the need to pray for some kind of light protection or go to the Astral looking for God.

 I am happy to hear that you were successful and here's to many more!  smiley

 Good Luck and Safe Travels!  smiley

Hi and welcome to the Pulse.
Those initial fears do need conquering, after that it's far easier. Keep trying, you'll soon get the hang of it.

Good Ol' SP. It never fails to scare the bejeezus out of us. Except for Szaxx, he has never experienced SP.

The upside is that once you realize you are in that state, you CAN end the terror immediately and enjoy the free ticket to an OOBE.

Thank you for your responses Lionheart, Szaxx, and Astralzombie, it's very cool indeed to hear back from you three first, as I feel like I know you already from reading your posts the past few months. I'm ready to get back to meditating with the purpose of preparing myself for more OOBE/Projections now. The fear I experienced from being out of my body for even a few seconds was so intense and so irrational it's hard to put in words. I even felt like once I got back in my body and into paralysis that I would snap out of my body again.

For some reason I just wasn't expecting to be scared of being out of body, and it could have been because I went straight from a lucid dream to being out of my body. I've also had an experience where I was flying in the dream state recognized it, said awareness now repeatedly and I was outside my house floating out of my body. I was definitely not ready for this either and jolted back into my body. So I'm going to try it again but in the early morning, on the weekends. I'll let you guys know if I have any luck. Thanks again for everything you all have been doing to contribute to this website. It's a golden resource for me and many many others I'm sure.

I wouldn't call the fear irrational because we  are in a state of ultra awareness and our belief systems and cultural conditioning tells our rational mind that what is happening isn't possible. It was instinctive for me.

Of course not everyone is raised in the same belief systems thus they aren't taught that this stuff is impossible so they wouldn't freak out and some welcome it.

It made me question everything that I believed in and ultimately has shaped me more in the last 14 years than anything else.

10 p.m. milkshakes are doing more to shape me now though. grin

Yeah, I know what you mean as I was also quite surprised when the roll out method worked the first time. Too bad it doesn't work Every time though.
