Hi NL smiley. Come to think of it, the times I've fallen asleep watching movies I haven't noticed it effecting the dreams either. TBH I've always thought of mantras as being a little woo woo and have never used them, but didn't know just listening to them was a thing. Do you have any links to mantras in particular you would recommend for a newbie, or to some you have had good experience with ?

Thanks LU, yeah this one did have a little guided/simulation feel to it, but considering how long it's been since my last
experience I'm happy with it. Was also surprised by how long it lasted, caught myself thinking 'this is probably going to end
soon' many times.

Didn't mention it but I clicked out 3-4 times while the podcast was on, to this day I've yet to stay awake through one. Also
noticed that I regularly dream about what they talk about while asleep, click out have a mini dream about something totally
unrelated to anything, rewind the podcast to the last thing I remember and continue to listen and sure enough there is the
thing I just dreamed about. So now I've made a little python program that waits 20 minutes and then plays a short message every couple of minutes prompting me to do a reality check, haven't really used it yet but I'm hoping it'll work. smiley

220731
Lying down listening to the latest Mysterious Universe podcast, the episode ended and I turned on the other side and continued trying to project. At one point I thought I had woken up but it felt different somehow so I tried standing up slowly hoping to get "out", after standing up I was still not sure if I was awake or not so tried flying up and it worked.

Flew up through the house then decided to go back down inside, inside again I got confused because everything was different, eventually figured out I had gone down into the wrong house so flew out onto the street.

Walking down the street somehow turned into walking inside a big mall. After trying to float and push my hands through stuff and failing to do so I got the feeling of being stuck there physically and started to panic a little, don't recall how I did
it or if it just happened but I separated from the body I was in, kinda weird seeing "me"/the body walking away like nothing happened, after that I could fly and go through stuff again.

Got approached by a girl that wanted to go to dinner with me, we ended up drinking coffee at a café with a bunch of her
girlfriends. Kept loosing my phone and finding the wrong phone in my pocket, very frustrating.

Walking around the mall suddenly a big wall of water came crashing towards the panoramic glass wall of the mall, held out my hand and pushed the water back wizard style, lol, a group of people joined in and we got the water pushed away, this happened a couple of times.

Saw a girl flying a floor up to talk to an older woman sitting at a table, flew after her and asked how she was able to do
that, the older woman said it's because she is dead and I was too, told them about AP and NP and that I was lying home in bed and certainly not dead, then corrected myself and said I won't know for sure until I wake up or not. Walked around the mall with the girl, she gave me one amazing kiss, at one point suddenly she had a kid with her and for some reason she told me not to look directly in his eyes.

Saw a guitar store and got all excited by the thought of playing without physical limitations, but of course they were closing so that was a no go, oh well I'm sure I'll get the chance eventually.

220421 (two short NPE's with conscious exit)
Been on a little break from trying to project, have kept up with meditating regularly tho. But now I'm back at it, and managed to get two conscious exits last night.

1.
Slight vibration/buzzing, flying at high speed through the darkness past white narrow sections. After ~10 seconds landed on one of the sections, a wide incline street. Everything had a white bluish glow to it and it looked kinda artificial and very
clean, the people walking around were pretty big 7-8 feet tall. Was in a sitting position, tried to get up and walk but was
locked in place, took me a while to get free of what turned out to be a blue and yellow cube with rounded corners that was hovering above the ground. On top of it were 2 switches and a dial, each switch turned on an IC engine, had a bit of a laugh at the contraption (funny what the mind comes up with at times). Walked down some stairs to a more natural looking area (dirt ground, grass and trees) where there were a group of people, could hear explosions in the distance. A guy that looked to be in charge was talking on a cellphone, after he was done with the call I asked him where I was and if it was safe to be there. Apparently they were fighting some rebels/terrorists but was told it was safe to be there, while talking with him I noticed a guy near by with the head of a dog and another guy with a big head and massive square teeth, woke up.

2.
Again flying through darkness past white narrow sections, but this time there were also periods in total darkness with big
jumps/increase in speed. Found myself by a golf course, a guy approached me and asked if I wanted to play. Spend what felt like hours waiting for him to be done with the guy before me to get some golf clubs, while waiting I talked/played with a kid and his mother, never got the clubs. Some guy gave me a vape pen to try, it had the most amazing coffee flavour. Ended with me trying to get out of a industrial area, there was a big gate activated by a pressure plate that trucks would drive over to open. Tried standing on the plate to open the gate, but as soon as I got of the plate the gate would close, after a while I noticed a walkway right besides the gate, woke up going down the walkway.

That sounds like you were in the fade in/fade out stage of the process. As EV said, this is where you are just beginning to match the frequency of a new reality or dimension. It often will begin as ghostly imagery, but soon will develop into a full blown Being or even a whole scenario. That's if you "allow" it to. How do you do that? You just passively observe until it is time to react. No questions, no rushing, just simply observing and allowing what is going to happen to happen.

Yes, this was in the fade out stage. I'll work on passively observing it when it happens.

Quote
Yes, quite a bit. At first I questioned it as my eyes or mind playing tricks on me. But now, since it has occurred so often, I just smile and say "Hello"!  smiley

Hey Bob, I'm enjoying the conversation. Yes I have encountered the peripheral beings many times and they often begin as orbs. With observations they can in time begin to appear as themselves. Matching frequency and all that. Like Lu stated, just say hello. That's what I do.

There are so many unobserved things in the empty space around us it is probably a good thing we can't 'see' them all the time. I don't think they 'see' us all the time either which is likely good for them as well. But we can sometimes cross the line and synchronize our energies and make new friends.

Good job Bob.

Good to know, I'll say hi to "them" if it happens again smiley. NL, I agree that our limited perception of the world around us is a good thing, it would probably be to much for the brain to handle if we had a wider range of observation IMO.

Thanks for the input guys, I appreciate it!

This was "only" short hypnopompic imagery, most after clicking out; a few after longer periods of sleep. I haven't yet been
able to hold on to these and turn them into something more, at most they last around a half-minute. But I'll keep it in mind and try to look through it the next time it happens.

Lu, the glowing white orbs you mentioned made me remember seeing this while being fully awake. It happened about 2 months after I started trying to project, and went on for about a week. They were always in my peripheral view and would disappear when I tried to get a better look at them, I dismissed it as just my mind playing tricks on me, but one time I could have sworn it was right there in the room with me. Has anyone else encountered this ?

EV, if it wasn't for the Astral Pulse I would probably have given up by now, it's by far the best site I have found on the
subject. Also seeing a lot of synchronicities on here, many times after having a dream or a thought about NP, I've come on here and then there just happen to be a new post related to it, blows my mind sometimes.

Thanks for sharing smiley thought I was going crazy for a second there, LOL. Always good to see others have had similar experiences.

It started with the TV fuzz that got really pixelled. I could see, hear, and feel the texture of the static. It got really chunky too.

This perfectly lines up with what I saw, it started with small 'pixels' then changed into bigger squares. What freaked me out a little was how artificial it looked with clean lines, 90-degree angles and the sharp contrast between the black and white.

Been getting some new hypnopompic imagery in the last week or so.

Whole FOV filled with static, like on a old CRT TV with no signal, but with bigger pixels. Looked very digital and for some reason it made me feel uncomfortable.

A white light starting in upper left, getting brighter and brighter and bigger and bigger. It was as if the dynamic range had somehow gotten greatly expanded, the intensity of the light just kept increasing. It became to much so opened my eyes, took a few seconds for my vision to return to normal.

Whole FOV flashing between black and white (strobe light effect).

Solid light purple color on left side.

Vibrating head, felt like it was expanding and contracting at around 7Hz, felt a little nauseous.

Lying down listening to a podcast and practicing letting go, and let my mind do it's thing without trying to focus on anything in particular other then being aware. Resulted in a short LD, after click out.

Outdoor on a sunny day beside the ocean, 10 or so one-piece wooden picnic table benches scattered around with people sitting at everyone of them, and a small kiosk nearby. Walked over to a table sat down and played around with putting my hand through the table, just to make sure I was in the NP and to see if anyone would notice it, but no one did. Said to the guy sitting next to me 'you know this is my dream right ?', he didn't believe me so I asked him if I would be able to put my hand through the table if it wasn't and demonstrated it to him. No big reaction from any of the people looking so showed them I could fly as well but still nothing, I guess they were just npc's. Slowly woke up while going over to the kiosk to get a refreshment and thinking about what to do next.

And, if you see the image on the card every day when you close your eyes (how long has that been going on??)

Been seeing it since 2-3 months ago, when it started I thought there could be something wrong with my eyes so I did a quick search and found this https://www.microserenity.com/spiritual-eye.html . Haven't seen the five-pointed star in the center, but at times there is a round field there of tiny white dots. I also do get the tingling between the eyebrows that's mentioned there, although to me it's more of a pressure/pulsing sensation. Anyway, I figured it could be something like that or some part of it, at least it's something other meditators have experienced and not something to worry about.
12  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Re: Practicing reading tarot cards? on: October 22, 2021, 14:51:05
I have actually been thinking about rearranging furniture and changing my usual projection/meditation spot, just to mix things up a bit and see if it has any impact. But been procrastinating and haven't gotten around to it. I'm gonna take your reading as a sign and get my lazy butt in gear and get it done smiley

Really like the card BTW, I see that image daily when closing my eyes. A deep black circle in the center with a white edge, not as sharp as on the card, but remove the bright white outline from 3 to 1 o'clock and it's pretty much spot on!

Thanks for the reading!
13  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Dream Melodies and Relaxation/Focussing Techniques on: October 21, 2021, 14:47:30
I've only heard music once, it happened a couple of months ago after clicking out while trying to phase and having a non-lucid mini dream, the hypnopompia was accompanied by the most beautiful classical orchestral type music, it only lasted 15 sec or so and faded away with the hypnopompic imagery.

Lately I've started to recognize when it's a good time to meditate instead of doing it at a set time, I would describe that state as the body feeling a bit tired/sluggish but without being tired as in needing sleep, while the mind is sort of drifting. But if you only have one specific time of day to meditate and mental stress from work, then I would suggest using some binaural beats, I personally like the theta range (4-7 Hz). After physical exercise IMO is a bit of a double edged sword, in that it can leave you totally fired up with a natural high or slightly spent and relaxed. Maybe try a nice long relaxing hot shower..

And welcome aboard smiley

211022 (Lying down listening to the latest video from DTTV Documentaries)
Dreaming. On the couch listening to the above, a little kid coming into the house running around screaming, grabbed him and walked him out of the house, then being attacked by 3 guys.

Kept having false awakenings and strong vibrations accompanied by very loud painful high pitch noise while going in and out of sleep paralysis. Hitting myself in the forehead with my palm to stay "awake" and not go back into sleep paralysis, was sure I was awake looked at my hands and touching stuff and it all seemed real. Tried flying and it worked, thought I was flying in real life, lol.

After flying around for a while I realize I'm dreaming and not in my own house anymore. It looked like something out of lord of the rings, with little dwarfs here and there. Getting attacked by a guy in a black leather duster, flew away from him
through the house and hid thinking I could surprise attack him from behind, coming around a corner somewhere up high (the attic perhaps) and there he was standing right in front of me. He came at me with a sword, picked up a sword from a nearby knight in armor statue and killed the guy, and just for good measure took a shiny war hammer (martel de fer) from the inside of his open coat and plunged the spiky end into his heart.

Did some more flying and noticed that if I pointed my palms forward I could increase speed.

Standing in a big open room a 10 feet monster appeared across the room out of nowhere, he sent a knife at me via psychokinesis or magic, held up my hand and stopped it mid air, a little battle of wills/mind power and I managed to send it back into him. But it didn't have any effect on the big dude, materialized another knife and hit him again, still no effect. He then attacked me with ice balls/rays, so logically I thought 'hey fire beats ice' so proceeded to fly around him spraying him with fire out of my mouth, like some kind of dragon grin. He fell to the ground but was still alive, held his mouth open and breathed cold into him and that finally did him in.

Materialized a knife again just for the heck of it (playing around with my newfound power), sent it up into the ceiling
without looking and down fell this dwarf looking guy, looked up and the ceiling was full of people lying on cross beams
looking down, a couple of guys came and moved the dwarf away.

Met a cute girl, we started kissing but at some point she stopped and told me she had a fiancé, she then got swarmed by a bunch of girls. One of them pulled me aside into another room where there was a naked baby and a monkey lying in wood drawers, they both had both male and female genitalia. She then took the you know what and made them reproduce with themselves, I was shocked by what I was seeing, she put the drawers into a cabinet and they instantly started growing, that was to weird for me so I got out of there.

Found myself in a bar (still in the same building) and noticed this amazing looking fairy like bartender with a white glow
around her, she flew up to a floating table and started to clear it, I flew after her and asked her how she was able to fly
when none of the other people here could, of cause I can fly I'm a bartender she responded and flew back down. I stayed up there and thought about ordering a drink and immediately another bartender showed up asking what I would like, asked for a cocktail with whiskey and tequila but she had no idea what that was, so asked if I could sample some of the liquor they had. Sitting at a table back down at the ground waiting for the samples, this guy that felt like a brother that had been with me for most of the time just kept talking and talking, like he was a broken robot, gave him a little slap to make him snap out of it but he just kept talking. Next thing I know he's lying on the floor in some kind of box, I closed one part over his head and another part over the rest of his body, a couple of dwarfs pushed the box aside and it turned into the lower part of a table, while this is going on some guy next to me is doing running commentary like his recording the events, I remember him saying 'and then he had to put him away until a time when ... and he can be brought back again'. I felt so bad for having to lock him up that I started crying uncontrollably while my teeth was chattering like crazy, and then I woke up.

Not quite sure what to make of this one huh

Funny you should mention the flow. Been working on getting into the flow state/zone a little each day the last couple of
weeks. Dusted off my old guitar and been playing stuff I know by heart, where I can just sit down close my eyes and play
without thinking of anything, and when doing regular stuff around the house by only keeping focus on what I'm doing.

LU
Ain't that the truth! These days I'm happy with any kind of experience and view anything slightly new as progress. But I
gotta admit this one step forward two steps back is starting to get on my nerves.

Was trying to phase but it didn't happen, I got close a couple of times and the feeling of getting sucked in was there but
couldn't let go. instead it turned into a great meditation session that lasted a little over an hour. After ending it I had this euphoric feeling. Been a bit frustrated lately with not being able to project and with the way the world is going, that's all melted away now and I'm left with a feeling of everything is going to be ok, and a renewed faith in being able to learn to phase when the time is right. I've experienced something similar a few times before, but this was on a whole different level smiley

Cool LD Shineling, I'd watch that show grin

Last night I had one of those super lucid dreams. I was myself but at the same time I was my dreamer self. I can see that they are different - there’s the small me and the big super dreamer me. They are both I but my dreamer knows crazy things about the universe. Things my little me finds hard to understand. Both sides are the self but they are like two modes to my soul.

Interesting, do you remember everything that the super dreamer experienced after waking up ? I've had something similar happen where I get this moment of clarity about a subject, where it all makes sense and seems so logical, but after waking up that part of the dream is completely blanked out.
