Around 10 years ago I started practicing astral projection. I got to the stage where, I had the vibrations, even sat out of my body looking at a bright light but was too tired and went back to sleep, though most time I would wake up with sleep paralysis, that I was too scared, thinking it was demonic, so I stopped trying out of fear.

So I am back and have been meditating, trying different techniques, and ZILCH!!!! my body feels nothing, not even my soul sinking in and out of body NOTHING.... What could be the reason? I making the same effect as I used too, even though now I am mentally less demanded / expectations, more mellow?

I was wonder if it was because back then I was a virgin, pure minded, compared to now me being an adult and less pure. I used to try the monroe technique. I have tried waking up early hours, focused still nothing, even my body naturally has started waking up  by it'self in middle of night for me to practice.


Any reason why I might have hit a wall?

Anxiety about your purity could be blocking your progress. If you start to look within through meditation, focus on progressing as far inward as possible eventually your contact with your body will lessen. Focus on finding God by going within then you will have good help to reach your goal.

Had an interesting dream last night, this has. I was in my bedroom and the landlord came around and started renovating, changing my bedroom door as I was in bed, the drawers looked totally different. Then everything turned black as I was laying in the bed (in the dream), my body  started vibrating violently, and loud vibrations in my ears. At this point I figured out what was going on, so I decided to roll out of my body, room was now pitch black from the one in my dream before, and I flew out of the window but into a place where everything had vivid colours and was super blurred almost like it was one of those  photograph that were photo-shopped to look like a painting.


Even though it was just a dream, the projection, vibrations, noise felt like what it normally feels like. I happy cause it shows my body still remembers what to do. I just have to translate it into real life. I think me coming back on here is helping my subconscious.

What I've noticed in my journeys is that if I try one technique for too long, I become desensitized to it. However, if I switch techniques now and then I find that I have many more successes.

For instance, I really enjoy listening to TMI's Gateway meditation, because the intermittent talking wakes me up enough if I've fallen asleep to focus and then drift out of my body. But, if I listen to this same meditation for 5 nights straight, by the 5th night I simply go to sleep and don't wake up until the session is over, if not several hours after it ends.

I would also encourage you to think positively about your journey. Bluefire hit the nail on the head - Worries, fear, and everyday stress can severely hinder you if you dwell on it too much. I had a really stressful 6 months about a year ago and I only had 1 or 2 OOBEs, even though I was trying really hard to have them.

You're also correct about your subconscious - the more you think about AP and OOBEs throughout your waking day, and the more things you read, the more your subconscious will be aware of what the conscious you wants.

Hope this helps....Good luck!!

Yes, it seems to me your dry spell could be coming to an end with your renewed focus.  This was in fact a lucid dream type OBE with a full vibrational state included.  Take one step at at time in your learning process and be patient with yourself.  Your only limitations are self-created (ie in reference to any anxiety about purity which couldn't be a reason other than what comes from your own thoughts about it, since no other female here who is APing is likely thus) but you do need to maintain your intent and desire in order to experience.   

Best of luck

That's just it... it wasn't "just a dream".  Nothing is "just a dream".
People really need to take that word "dream" and just completely lose it... it gets people so utterly and completely stuck.

What you experienced was a projection.  Grats.  There's nothing wrong with you.  There never was.  Smiley

LOL, Are you serious?  Wow, cause I have had a few of these in dreams. I really wish, I could have a conscious one, as I feel the need to verify it. It's strange that just coming to this forum triggers them.

Yup, I'm serious.  Smiley

Too many people ignore great experiences because it doesn't fit into what they *THINK* a projection is supposed to be. 
Anytime you're experiencing a reality which isn't this physical reality and you're consciously aware... then you're projecting.  Smiley

We're good like that.  Wink

Hi as explained preconceptions can have a detrimental effect on your astral attempts and labeling experiences negatively will only hinder your progress, even though you're progress isn't what you'd like.

Depending on what where you read info on how to progress will give you different experiences. For me I mostly project after waking up in the middle of the night, been awake for a while and finally nod of back to sleep. It's at this point im aware of my astral vehicle or whatever u want to call it and project.

10 years ago you started this, well for me persistence is the key. Changing techniques can help and even discussing ap or being on here can trigger an event.

I mention 10 years because I first started projecting or being aware of what was happening was when I was a teenager, now in my 40s and last night was possibly the 2nd and 3rd time I've projected in 10 months. You can go very long periods with no success.

I repeat to myself daily of what ill think to myself once in the astral, I say "awareness clarity and energy or ACE and after last night's experience this is something that helped me focus.

After being awake for a while I drifted off. Soon I Was aware of mild vibrations and stepped out of my physical body. I walked through my bedroom door and then everything just faded.

I was very aware of what was happening but didn't say my ACE until my next attempt not long after on the same night. Again I became aware and stepped out of my body walked straight through my door all the time saying awareness clarity energy now, saying this was automatically done as I say this in the RTZ daily.  I walked down stairs with the intension of going outside through my front door, at This point things faded.

So 2 in 1 night when I had nothing for nearly 1 year. . Be persistent and u will achieve your goal, and get rid of labelling as all these none physical experiences are all the same, in the same realm. .

Good luck

Perception is everything, because you think you see it, does it mean its true?
