I just wanted to take a brief moment to introduce myself. I have been visiting Astral Pulse for almost a month now, and I decided to register over the weekend. I am a new traveler, and I began learning about OBE’s about 2 to 3 months ago (reading primarily 2 William Buhlman books). I have had a couple of OBE’s already, and I look forward to continuing my exploration with others here.

Hi and welcome to the Pulse.
Now you can ask questions on anything of interest rather than reading alone lol

Thx L-man!

After some research, I started with Secret of the Soul. It's my favorite so far, as I was encouraged that it consistently pointed back to spirituality as the reason to pursue OBE. My original intention when pursuing OBE's was to expand my spiritual practice. I also read 'Adventures'. Buhlman is very good.

I recently bought Robert Bruce's first edition AD book on Amazon, but I am not impressed with it. That may be because it is an e-book and there is no Table of Contents - you just have to read through the book from start to finish. I may keep it as a reference. I am a bit disappointed that he scares people a bit in regards to the negative aspects of the non-physical. Explanations from Buhlman (and many others) make much more sense to me (e.g., that it is a reflection of own fears, that entities are simply unevolved).

I like California (but it's not cheap, especially the water now). Yeah, the weather is excellent. However, after cutting back on our water use, the front yard has already started dying, and I have collected nearly 2,000 gallons of rain water this season for our garden (e.g., so we can keep it). Currently, there are some trade offs. And there are some things that we are finally catching up with Canada on, like healthcare for everyone.

Thx again for saying "hi"!

Hi fellow traveler,

This site is better than the internet itself if you ask me. wink
Lots of good kind people here for what little i've read.  tongue
I'm sure you will find what you are looking for.

I'll steal 8mins from your time to say hi to everyone too, I had not read about that. LOL
Good to be here.

Greetings from Venezuela.

The water situation in California definitely is pretty dire. Those reservoirs are tapped out. It will be interesting to see the course things take in the next 5 years over there. I am sure you know that farming accounts for 85% of that water use, so regulations on the residents of California can barely have an effect at all. What really needs to be done, is that certain luxury crops, like pistachios and almonds need to be severely cutback. Tree-nut crops consume a much greater percentage of the water than most produce, and need to be reduced in the interest of saving the staple produce farmers.

I am also aware that the government is aware what kind of civil unrest significantly higher water rationing and expenses will have on that region.

Hopefully they can get that huge de-sal plant (and honestly, 40 like it) up and running!

And I am glad you are finding the Pulse useful so far! It can be a great resource, if you leverage it well!

Venezuela is an interesting place too... I knew a Venezuelan dude who was deaf... strangest / most awesome accent ever. I hope Maduro is working out better for you all than Chavez (I know, not very hard, but I am still a bit worried). I have heard too many bad Chavez stories. Here's to hoping that all stays in the past!

Hi @RVX .. take 10 or 15 minutes if you want  smiley

Yeah, that's the great thing about the Internet - we get to connect with individuals from all over the world. I think that currently it is the singular vehicle that is bringing a little bit of 'oneness' to this physical realm. I am glad you took your 8 minutes. I have met few people from Venezuela.

Hey @Stillwater .. thanks for the greeting

Yes, everything you said about our water problem is true. Near where I live (maybe 20 miles) they are already considering a desalinization plant. I think that one will happen, however out near Malibu (which is about 60 miles and they want to make a really big one), it will probably not happen because of people's attitudes. Things tend to happen regionally in California.

I am still learning about 'Pulse'. I have recently stepped aside from OBE practice while I absorb some of the old content here (from a few years ago). I find myself agreeing with a lot of what Frank Kepple said, but at the same time, I find that 'Pulse' is riddled with rather poor or bad information about the Monroe Institute and Robert Monroe. Personally, I have found TMI very helpful, so when someone is negative about TMI, I practice detachment and step back. It creates a 'stop and start' process for me.

Greetings to you, fellow Californian!
I need to figure out what to say for my own introduction. I'm not very good at these things.
