176  Integral Philosophy / Welcome to Integral Philosophy! / worship on: December 08, 2002, 02:14:42
Hi all, long time no visit for me, exams getting in the way again.

On the topic of worship, what if we throw in the concept ( insert usual my opinion only disclaimer) that God in the sense  of the entity, not true divine energy (Ain Soph if you swing that way), is a creation of man, not the creator. Just like every other god in history, God (note capital) started life as a thought form, and God became a god due to its thought form being worshiped to such an extent. Perhaps God's partial conformity as an entity to a divine archetype - or a divine blue print that has to exist grants the entity divine energy. But who can really tell? So perhaps we make our god's, just like a magical thought form but on a much bigger scale. It could be argued that God made a lot of big stuff happen before it became mass worshiped, but you have to look at the reliability of the source of this information. Worship makes something we made stronger, but why is it so popular? Not trying to ruffle any feathers just offer another opinion.

best regards

David

Hi Lysear

I just wanted to add that it is a very healthy thing to question your belief system, strive to never be trapped by the fear that can come with challenging your foundations of belief. As we grow from childhood we need to buy bigger cloths due to our growing bodies, as we enhance our perceptions we might need to restructure our beliefs to give us a bit more room to breath as well… yep aint nothing like sound good rambling!

To answer bluntly yes you can http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/images/icon_Smile.gif" border=0>

For me the way I see other people changed as I became more sensitive (not that Im claiming to be a fantastic all singin all dancing aura guy-still learning too), I guess to put it in a nut shell I would say that my expectations of people changed but my ability to apreciate them increased.

180  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / chest pains? what? on: September 15, 2002, 08:40:59
Hi Tisha

I would certainly see a doctor even if it hasnt happened since. There are a few causes of chest pian and none of them is much good! The fact that it happened when you were rested is a perhaps real plus because Angina and MI (the worst things) would be more likely to rear there head at a time when you were active (increased blood presure).

I recently found out I have a heart condition and Im fit and 18, so it can happen to anyone. I dont mean to scare you I just want to make sure you do see a doctor.

I used to play at Brownsplains because it was about 10mins from my home, but they closed down about 3 years or so ago. Now I play (but not often) at a place called NPF (national piantball fields) in Blacksoil near ipswich, its fantastic there, they have some awsome fields. My social club at work was talking about going some time in the future and anyone is invited, if it goes ahead Ill be sure to send you a personal message just in case you feel like going!

183  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Why Not Just Shield??? on: September 11, 2002, 23:26:09
Hi everyone

Thanks for the feedback on my question.

"You do not need to "maintain" a shield all of the time, plug it into kether (God), there is always energy there, and that is the vibration you are looking for. (I think, anyway)."  Ides315

Thanks mate that is absoulutly brilllant advice! Such a logical and simple thing I had not even considered! With all of the Middle Pillar work Ive been doing lately this should be easier than ever.

Something I find very interesting that a few of us have touched on,  is programing shields to do fairly complex things. As mentioned in responce to my earlier question there is no reason that i cant program a shield to allow full access to certain people or certain incomming emotional interaction.

Regarding vibratory rates, I imagine that you would want a high vibratory rate because most negs exist on lower ones. Is it as simple as this?

One thing I have tried before is rather than using a normal shield as such is considering my aura itself to be a sacred space that can not be crossed by negativity. I see the whole aura as the brightest white and use a self affirmation such as "This is my sacred light that may not be crossed by that which intends to harm me. This is my holy space". I guess its the same thing as shielding with a different twist, its actually a rather invigorating to do this, it leaves you feeling like you you have just done a session of energy work. I think it would work well after the LBRP if you were in a heavy situation where you were doing a lot of protection work.  

Anways once again thanks for the feedback

best regards

David

Yes I absoulutly have to agree that Skirmish is the most exciting game around. In Austrailia you need a shooters licence to own a paintball gun (they are in the same category as a .22!) Ive got the licence because Im into target shooting but I dont have the $ to take it up. I dont know how much it costs in the USA but over here the equipment is just so expensive, I can spend a day on the range with my centerfires and spend half as much! (but since I got a .308 there is about the same amount of brusing http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/images/icon_Smile_blackeye.gif" border=0> hehe). Maybe once I graduate and get my job as a paramedic (fingers crossed!) Ill have the money to buy the gear and join a team.

185  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Why Not Just Shield??? on: September 11, 2002, 00:11:46
Hi all

The way I see it I put a lot of effort into my development and I dont want my time or energy taxed by getting into fights I dont have to. Or worse outright losing a fight with a powerful neg and being damaged from it. Yes a human aware of what they really are is something to be reckond with, but there is no positive to being attacked other than the potential for the satisfaction of lessor emotions.

I also have a question on shielding, I was going to start a new thread on shieldind methods but here will do.

Ok the method Winged Wolf mentions and the suit of light method ect, all create a shield around the body. What Im curious about is the protection of the aura and if it is covered by such a method. I have read many times  that thought forms exist inside the aura, I am curious if a shield that covers the skin will keep out forms that attack the aura, or only negs and people who try to attach directly to the energy body or an energy center.

Perhaps constructing an egg or sphere of light about say 7ft in diameter (or across in the case of the egg - an egg's more to the shape of the aura) would be sure to block out all forms of nasty more effectively? I have an efective shielding method using a sphere but some good points have been raised in the favour of a permanent shield. My only concern is that some of the methods of sealing the aura I have will make you hard to identify with if used for any extended period of time (as anothers aura can not share with yours - a normal part of being near someone). This can potentially break up relationships and lose friends because people dont feel they know you anymore. If a permanent sheild has the same effect than that is a serious negative to consider.

If anyone has any ideas I would be greatful

David

Hi ya people

I also practice the MPR and and LBRP and I would agree that these rituals are extreamly potent methods of development. But id like to add for people new to the rituals that they can have negative psychological side effects if you are not aware of the risks and prepared to manage them if they arise. A common trait of GD practicioners is a fantastic ego. When energy is raised from the crown to the lower extremities it can seemingly have this effect over time. Although the MPR is not ment to be working with chakras it has the same effect as developing the crown chakra before the base. In other words it works in the opposite direction to traditional yoga development. An egotistical mind is likely to be detrimental to high level development. But if your aware of this you can manage it if you notice ourself leaning in that direction.

"If I didnt own this gun the King of England could just walk in here and start pushin you around!...Do you want that!?" Homer Simpson

In Australia we have very strict gun laws (but not as bad as Englands), we can own Bolt action longarms if we attend a gun club or work on a property and we can own a handgun of any capasity but it can only be used on a range (not on private property). Not many people know it but our handgun owners also are checked out by ASIO our inteligence agency. Using a firearm for self defence is against the law period. We have had a number of trials where a gun owner who sticks to the rules has shot an armed intruder in their own home who was warned, all have been found guilty. This is so wrong it makes me angry.

Since the tightening of our gun laws and our 'buy back' scheme where the government gave people unsatisfactory amounts of money for their semi autos, firearm related death has increased and the number of roberies with firearms has increased dramatically. With the exception of some domestic violence killings and suicides, these crimes have been commited with illegal (restricted type of weapon or not registered) firearms buy unlicenced people. Government stastics outright show this and our prime minister will not comment. The reality is a lot of guns fetched a higher price on the black market than they did when given to the government. Often twice as much. Guns are here to stay and the only people these new laws affect are law abiding citizens. Criminals dont care about the law by definition, so where is the logic in creating blanket  laws for everyone aimed at criminals! There are more guns on the street than ever.

I own several long arms, I am a very sucessful target shooter and I absolutly cant get enough of shooting. I love the fact that all people, men, women,young, old, fit and unfit can compete on an equal basis. To be very good requires an extream degree of mental disipline, no other sport comes close to what is required, well maybe archery!. Like motor racing a lot of people find it satisfying to finely tune an instrument and try and work as one with it. And I must say I also dig the loud noises and the destruction when the steal plate I hit at 500m gets smacked off its stand. Its really fun! People say all sorts of verbal diorea about those who enjoy shooting having self esteam issues and the need to feel they have power over other people. Yes they do exist but they are few and they are very much shunned by the shooting community. The reality is shooting is simply fun and challenging.

The way I see it I am a peaceful law abiding person. If I get satisfaction from the safe sporting use of a firearm than I should have that right. There is no taking the guns off those who use them for evil, so why deprive me of what I enjoy.

Hi all

I recomend that anyone interested in the evil that resides in man do a web search on Freuds 'Thanatos'. The theory is that inside the subconscious mind exists two polarities the eros and the thanatos. The eros consists of survival urges such as eat, mate ect. The thanatos is the evil component of the mind, it contains urges to harm yourself, kill, rape and tourture ect.

Man is never black and white, every holy man still has an active thanatos, like everything in nature the mind strives to maintain equalibrium or atleast has the capasity to do so.  Anyone who desides to live a life of pure good is adapting their mind (superego) to not acknowledge the thanatos. The fact that people who are involved in energy work and meditation experience such strong urges or guidences by the thanatos is perhaps because they are more attuned to their subconscious mind in general, just an idea.

Hi ya Distant Bell

Ive lived in Brisbane Australia my whole life and frankly Im quite happy to live here the rest of my  life! The weather is fantastic in comparision to most of Australia and the world for that matter. It can get pretty hot in summer but since we have some of the worlds best beaches cooling off can be very enjoyable. Actually Im steriotyping just for the fun of it, while we do have wonderful beaches I havnt visited on for a long time (while we have a huge surf culture lots of people never even visit them).

Yes Australia has the most dangerous snakes and spiders in the world, but in reality unless your home is near bushland or you go bushwalking you wont see any snakes, and as for spiders I have never been bitten by a nasty one. I was bitten once by a huntsman but they are harmless, most people have never been bitten by anything. If you are living near any of the major universities in Brisbane I doubt you would ever see a dangerous animal (your in a city not bushland!).  

There are only three major univesities in Brisbane and they all have plenty of money and they are very much in competition. They are Griffith, QUT and UQ, there are some other smaller uni's aswell but these are the major ones and they are all world class.

I know I sound like a travel brocure but Brissy really is a fantastic place to live! Im sure Mobius will back me up!

HI people

Tisha: I dont see colour in the aura all that consistently yet (only if Im very relaxed and even then its only hints of colour) so Im not sure about that but an all white aura is considered by many to be the perfect aura, so lots of white is always good! Actually you would need a more detailed description of the colours involved and their position in the aura to make any sence of it.

That trick with the hand is a good one! You will find that you can even get most non spiritual people to see the etheric around the hand to some extent. Be careful however, my best friend Natalie has a very christian mother who attempts to raise her as one, although Nat has always taken a lot of interest in the occult and metephysical things I do she has never really had an in your face demonstration that it is real before. I showed her how to do it on the train about a week ago and now she is a very conflicted person. She is glad that she has proof now but the fear of being punished by god is still embedded in her mind. She is now slowly letting go of her fearful and rigid  ideas and evolving spiritually. Or at least putting herself in a position to do so. So I guess in the end it was quite a gift to give her, well she seems to think so.

As a matter of interest she approached her mother (the fanatical christian)about auras, she herself sees them in church at times but she believes is is the holy ghost.

Hi Stryfe

There is only one type of person who dosent have an aura, dead people. Your 'friend' is full of ****. Even the most evil people have an aura, yes it might be dark and speckeled with crimson but hey its still there. It is the soul. Some peoples auras are harder to feel and see than others but they are still there. Tell them to stop scaring you with their uneducated skill lacking babble.

It is possible to make your aura less noticable, you can do it by just visualising it being clouded with smoke and beliving that you wont be noticed (great for when the teacher is picking someone to do something!) but I dont think you can make it fully vanish, well if you did I think it would be pretty neat but Ive never heard of it.

So sure maybe there is something out of the ordinary about you that makes you hard to read, maybe its something you will see as being possitive or negative, but you most certainly have an aura ok http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/images/icon_Smile.gif" border=0>

Well done Mate!

What you say about focus is the same for me too. I see auras normally without having to relax my eye muscles so they are just a normal part of vision now, but if I relax my eye muscles when looking at the aura of a tree it goes less bright and extends out heaps. I imagine by relaxing the muscles we are seeing a more refined layer of the aura. Can you see the aura around people yet? I actually saw it around people before trees.

Hi Windameir

Well as I have mentioned in previous posts Im no wiz bang all singin all dancin auric sight guy but I do see them so Ill help the best I can. I dont see colour all that often but thats getting to be a little more frequent for me.

Ok when I look at a tree it looks a little different than a person, the etheric layer which is the layer nearest the physical body when seen around a personl extends out a few centemeters depending on your ability and the energy of the person, and has a fairly distinct outer edge that allows it to be seen seperate from the rest of the aura. I imagine if you saw auras in colour the outer edge of the etheric would be even more obvious. The etheric layer is the most dense auric layer and thus is the easiest to see and the closest to the body.

But when I look at a tree there is just a big bright band of light around its branches. While the first say...20 - 30cm are somewhat brighter then the rest of the aura there does not seem to be such a distinct etheric band. It just continues out unbroken for the meter or so I can see it. So to really simplify what is rather hard to try and discribe well what I see is just a big bright area of light around the branches. Simple as this, if you see a glowing around the branches well your seeing the aura and with practice you will see a lot more of it. When I think back when I first saw the aura around trees I only saw a band that extended about 5cm or so.  

I hope this helps you out, if you post what you are seeing maybe we could work it out for you easier, if Ive been off track of what you wanted answered please say so and ask any questions you have. Maybe someone with more experience might be able to answer if I cant http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/images/icon_Smile.gif" border=0>

I dont buy it
1. It reaks of just being a scam
2. The easiest way is not always the best way.

It seems if you have not prepared your own energy body and soul for Kundalini raising through a lot of meditative and energy work it either wont happen or you get bitten on the arse. If you are not ready then you will go insane and or die - assuming it works. Some do it early and not only live but learn to deal with it, but they write books about how hard it was and how stupid they were. .IMO if you are not ready then keep up the work until you are, even if it takes 15 years. Id rather have a nice consistantly growing energy body then a fantastic one in a mental ward or spirit relm.

I might sound like a conservative wet towel but it does not seem clever to raise it before you are ready.

Thanks for going to all that effort mate! Very interesting reading, Im actually going into Brisbane (nearest city) this Sunday where the largest Occult/Metaphysical book store in the southern hemisphere is. Im mainly going in to cause sceans and general public mayhem with my partner in crime/soulmate Natalie but Im deffinately going to spulrge some money at the book shop. PSD is the main item on the shoping list but you have inspired me to learn more about Chi and Ki.

A close friend of mine is very highly graded in Buducan Kubodo ("hard" martial art). The highest graded in Australia actually, anyways when he has the money he flys to Japan to train at the head school run bu the grand master Hatsumi. There are some awsome feats of energy used there. Practically everyone in the room is capable of seeing Aura's. Hatsumi is beyond human, when facing him in training he changes the atmosphere of the room from compleatly plesant to a feeling of terror. And thats only  the general feeling of the room, if you are his training opponent you feel like you are in a genuin life or death situation - and you are going to lose. People when against him often drop to the floor after being stabbed by weapons that are not there. And these peaple are not energy weaklings by themselves.  When I have full colour auric sight Id love to go there, there would be some spectacular sights to see!

I think you and I have one thing deffinately in common, we both have to get back into our martial arts!

Hi Xanaxjj

As Astralmaster has said there is a lot of literature on this and if you look through Roberts articles attached to the main page Im sure you will find something.

But give you a simple answer, yes the activities you listed will make you stand out more to nasties, but if you are of a sound state of mind it is very unlikely anything serious will happen to you. Its like being struck by lightning, eaten by a shark ect. Infact being worrid about such things is more likely to draw them to you then anything else. So na, unless you are prone to psychic attact or nasty entity related things, or you suffer serious depression I would not be  too concerned.

To attract unwanted human based attack you first have to motivate a person to devote a lot of time and energy to harming you. And unless you are fearful negs will pretty much leave you alone. The human being is a powerful creature. But while the odds of a shark eating you might be slim a person would be stupid to forget there are sharks in the ocaen, lots of them. Hope this helps, if not please say so.

regards

David
