Okay, I have been unable to project. I have been trying for rather a long time. A year or so. Now I do have one question since I am still new to many of the concepts of the action. Originally I would just mediate on projecting. And I usually meditate before I go to sleep.
Now my question. In most of the things that I have read many people some what warn of not trying to project before you go to sleep when you are first starting out.
Why is that?
I know one of the things Mr. Bruce says, (I think if I remember correctly) was that it is better when begining to try during the day when you are fully awake. Mostly because it is daylight outside.
So are there any other reasons?
If not would this apply to me since I sleep during the day and am awake at night. So if I was to try and go outside during the day I would have to do it before I sleep.
Also, I have gotten to the point of vibrations only a couple of times. The last was several months ago and I have not been able to bring it back. Any suggestions?
"If you see the wrong way sign you had better rethink your course."
Believe me when I say that you should not take what you read in books *too* literally. You should use the basic principles and develop your own way.
For example, just recently I have made *major* developments in my projection abilities. Despite having had hundreds of Astral experiences, I never knew what "chakras" were. People on this BBS were kind enough to point me in the direction of some basic information that I found *very* helpful.
Now, to me, a "chakra" sounds like some kind of potatoe crisp. But from the information I received, I managed to realise the importance of understanding the basic principles involved and the basic workings. From which, I developed a new set of terms that, as an ex-engineer, I can positively relate to.
Now, if someone were to ask me what I am doing, I'd reply, "I'm connecting my sense of conscious awareness to my Remote-Projection Interface".
You see, when someone talks to me about a "crown chakra" it means nothing. I instantly imagine it's something the Queen would wear on an off-day.
But thinking about a "remote-projection interface" says everything
to me. Because I can relate to it. Plus, it feels doubly exciting just knowing that I've got one... to the extent that, tomorrow morning, I cannot wait to activate it again.
The problem being, I feel, that years ago, in whatever land or language that term evolved in, the term: "chakra" probably gave those people exactly the same
sense of excitement that I feel today when I think of activating my "remote-projection interface".
Not only that, I discovered that I have a "remote visual interface" too. That I am finding I can activate SO easily. But when people would talk of "brow chakra" all I'd imagine was some potatoe crisp stuck in my hair.
So please realise that it can be *very* beneficial to work all the basics out in your own terms.
