Since no one replied... I'm gonna start it Smiley
Keep in mind that I am still trying to get out (it's been a yr now).

I start by laying down in my bed on my back.  I look at the ceiling for about 10 minutes.  I concentrate on the radom thoughts that are coming in my head.  After 10 minutes, I close my eyes and I get all thoughts out of my head.  i imagine my self falling in the dark.  I keep falling and falling.  eventualy the vibes hit and I imagine my self grabbing a rope on top of my bed and pulling....

So yeah, I use the rope technique to get out.

Entering the astral from a dream:

Most people don't realise this, but it takes several years of practice (for most people) to enter the astral straight through meditation (sometimes referred to as a "Fully Conscious Projection".) Instead, most people's projections are pulled from a dream (because you need to be relaxed to the point of sleep to have one). That is why I have posted the following technique in the Astral FAQ:

I have had some good success recently with a combination of techniques.  I start with basic relaxation.  I do some concentration on my breathing.  I then try to feel that on my in breath I am expanding to fill the room and on my out breath I am shrinking to nothing.  After doing this for a while I will enter F10.  At this point I try to look straight up or straight down with my third eye, when I get a sense that I am projecting some sort of ray of awareness I move it up and down, left and right until one of the directions gives me solid exit sensations, eventually its like I pick up a radio signal to trigger projection with my antenna and I forget about my body and BAM I dissolve into F2.

The best thing that works for me is to simply lie down, get the mind as clear as possible and then breath and mentally count like this...

breath in......count
exale slowly
breath in......count
exale slowly
...

and continue counting like this:
1 to 10 back to 2
2 to 10 back to 3
3 to 10 back to 4
4 to 10 back to 5
5 to 10 back to 6
6 to 10 back to 7
7 to 10 back to 8
8 to 10 back to 9
9 to 10 back to 9
9 to 10 back to 8
8 to 10 back to 7
7 to 10 back to 6
6 to 10 back to 5
5 to 10 back to 4
4 to 10 back to 3
3 to 10 back to 2
2 to 10 back to 1

over and over as long as it takes  to get your mind so tired that it cant even think anymore, and when this happens just sit there and experience the "Now" and any quirky vibrations that may come of it.

practice this on a semi-regular basis and soon you will become more sensitive to the largely ignored strangeness you will come to know well Smiley enjoy!

not sure where I read it but I used something that was very useful last night.  I wrote a C on my right index finger and every time I would wake up or think to look at it I would.  I had 3 obes last night.  It worked so well I think I will do it tonight as well.

All of my projections started during afternoon naps. I'm not sure why. My theory is that there is a short window of opportunity between waking and sleeping in which you can make an exit. This window seems prolonged during naps.

Generally, when I make my exits, I've entering a state of quasi-dreaming, but haven't quite lost contact with my senses. I can still hear and feel my environment. If I'm still aware, I focus on synchronizing my escape with my breathing. As my chest rises, my astral body does as well. When my chest falls, my astral body maintains altitude. My astral body continues to rise with each inhalation. Gradually, a sense of warmth and weightlessness develops.  After several moments, my exit is complete. That's when I bumble/float around like a drunk idiot, get too excited, and wake up.

It usually takes me about 5mins or less to put myself under the hypnogogic state to leave when I'm very relaxed. I've been able to time track this along with one time with video recording.

I'll wake up physically and back to bed, a trip to the bathroom during the night or setting the alarm clock to go off. I've found also naps are good place to start where the body needs to reset but the mind is definitely active at that time.

But during the initiation process I'll feel myself reaching or rolling off the bed and onto the floor. Sometimes, I will imagine this or I will awake in the hypnogogic state.

Hope this helps..

well it's my first post here ...
I knew about astral projection 2 years ago and it's really interesting me but I don't know why, it seems like I'm not really motivated to AP (...?!)
I sometimes spend weeks trying to Astral Project every night and suddenly it feels like i'm "tired of it" (indeed I get very strong feelings when I try to do it!! I don't have these method problems, you know, like when you spend 15 minutes trying to AP but you don't know how)( I'm ABLE to astral project , I'm sure of it, but I don't have the patience)

... And about this post:
I don't know if I use the rope technique to AP, but it's something like this: I lay in my bed, (I never make relaxation exercises because I fall asleep!)
I close my eyes and try to get the same feeling that when I'm in an elevator, without visualising anything

I wonder if this can give some results?

It's really near to the rope technique. I tried to change the rope technique into something more familiar to me (I never climbed any rope, in my whole life)

Teal'c,

Welcome to AP and its good to see that you've questions..Smiley Hopefully, I can offer some suggestions.

What you need to do is trick your body and your awareness. The best method I can suggest and will take some practice and patience is to set your alarm clock a good couple hours before you awake for the day.

Set the alarm clock to go off every 15 minutes for 1-2hours. This is the part that you'll have to be disciplined in and have patience. Its easy to just say "screw it" and turn off the alarm clock completely and go back to bed. During the 15min periods, while you fall back to sleep, imagine yourself like a log spinning around. What usually happens is that your lower physical consciousness transfers to your higher awareness causing the vibrations to occur.

There will be no mistake not knowing when the vibrations will hit. Just try to be as relaxed that you can and not to get excited. Since you are still rolling in circles, imagine your whole body rolling right out of the bed and onto the floor. Sometimes, this can be tricky and concerning because its questionable will the physical body truly land on the floor or the astral. Still there's that uncertainty, but time and time again I've had no problems with this.

Once you are on the floor and out of body - try to open your eyes slowly to get acclimated to the world around you. Take everything in baby steps and stay within the boundaries of your home or close to outside if you can. You'll crawl at first but after time it will become running for you and then flying.

Everyone has their own technique and not one is wrong - what works for some doesn't mean it will work for you. read as much that you can, exercise daily with talking to people in this forum, study different authors, and have fun....

Hope this helps

hi this is a method i use in my daily life not only in what i call step one of a obe

it is to clearer your mind by mentally writing everything in your mind then mentally erase all those things you wrote  

i found it a vary hard method to learn because i am not the best one to come up with good training methods  but this is great for making your self forget something some one told you than just not doing what they asked if you are mad at them  cheesy  but that is off the subject

any way's if some one has something i could put this in effect with as in add to this to some other method to  achieve a projection that would be great

Hey - that's good.  And if you wanted to be really thorough, you could literally write down on a piece of paper everything that is on your mind.  And then erase it all, or tear it into lots of little pieces and chuck it in the bin.

Hmmm, on the other hand, that might be too effective.  You could end up forgetting whole swathes of stuff...

make sure that you shred the paper that you write everything down, otherwise you wouldn't want mental identity theft..Smiley

but I do like what you suggest. it is good to write what you are thinking, it does allow one to let out the thoughts, worries, cares and organize them.

i think the act of throwing it away is symbolic. starting a new, getting a fresh lease on starting over again..

I've never actually gotten out yet, but i came close a few times.

i have a clock in my room that ticks pretty slow, so i keep my breathing going at the same pace as the clock.  i visualize myself lifting up from my body with my body still laying there.  then i keep saying in my head "i am slowly lifting out of my body"

hasn't gotten me out yet, almost though.

I havent managed to get out yet either, but heres what it try: I lay down in bed on my back with palms facing up along side of my body. I breathe in for 5 seconds, hold it for 3 and exhale for 5. In through nose, out through mouth. I then on the inhale imagine im on a ladder, but dont move down the ladder until i get to the exhale, when i go down approx. 5 steps. i keep doing this and keep my eyes open just over the coveres a tiny bit, then it seems weird to try and close my eyes, because they feel resistent. I feel a tiny bit numb, but most of the time hardly anything happens. After a while of doing that i imagine a rope at my chest and i imagine me climbing up the rope in the same blackness that i imagined the ladder to be. After a while i stop, because nothing happens apart from i seem to twitch and move a bit while im climbing the ladder.

That sounds like a lot of work with the ladder but if it gets you out and there are results cool, go for it!

Either way you look at it, this boils down to mental/physical work. You have to kinda of let the process happen naturally with a mental carefree attitude.

Xiaolin,

Everyone is different in their technique's and methods. To me that approach seems to be way out there. I understand the principles and objective, but never in my life I've tried using the rope technique. To some, my approach of using the trance state might sound complex, challenging to summon and difficult.

If I were you, read up on all the different methods, techniques and feel them out for yourself. What ever is comfortable to you and that results are positive, stick with that plan and develope it. Try a different technique each week and see what works and what doesn't. A lot of this is trial and error until you're in the clique.
