I've been doing a lot of suggested reading and thinking lately after receiving some awesome insight and advice here on the forum.

One of the major ideas that I was told was to incorporate my AP experiences into my waking life. It got me thinking about how AP can change or enhance a person's life.

Personally, I went from believing that our time here was finite to understanding that there is more than just that which can be scientifically proven currently.

I've started to feel what the "energy body" is, and my experiences have helped me understand that your outlook can directly affect your life experiences.

What about you guys? How has AP personally changed your lives?

"How has AP personally changed my life?"

You may not realize it but you have asked a very very loaded question.

AP has changed my life in much the same way as stepping on a rusty nail. It has made me more cautious, more observant and more aware of my surroundings.
Remember, You came here to this physical earth to experience it in its physical form. NPR will always be there.

I must say, as a person who experienced this since I was child, it has never been a surprise to me, but rather something that has accompanied me my entire life. I remember at six years old finding myself out of my body in my room and just saying "Oh, well! It seems like I'm out of my body" like the most normal thing in the world, it's like I've brought this built-in knowledge that all human beings are capable of doing this. I just knew I had to keep it a secret, I didn't think it was a good idea to talk about this.

For me AP is like holding a magic key to an infinite, new and unexplored world. Truly knowing that we are more than a physical body, in such a materialistic world that only wants our time and money, is a breath of fresh air. Knowing that the world doesn't end here, working eight hours and paying taxes and that's all. Rather, we are invited to be part of a wonderful and huge multiverse, to discover our true essence and find our own path. Feeling closer to "Home" although we never left it, it is just an illusion. AP and LD also stimulate the imagination and creative force, definitely. Especially for creators. And also, we never lose the sense of fun and adventure, you never know what is going to happen! Knowing that the answers we always wanted to know are always available, and the healing experiences... I have infinite gratitude!

AP has made my life broader and spiritually rich, there is not a day where I do not keep all this in mind. Just thinking about the infinite forms of physical and spiritual life that exist, worlds, dimensions, states of consciousness beyond human understanding, etc.  fills me with great emotion. And above all to know that I can be part of all this.

It helped me discover myself from many points of view. To understand existence and to understand the choices all points of consciousness make. To feel myself expanded far beyond what my conscious mind sees. To see my life challenges as opportunities to grow. To be in constant state of content and at the same time to be surprised by many new adventures.

 I would say that it "confirmed" that I am more than my physical body! Once that happened, everything changed. The way I saw things, emotions, the way I thought things were, the way I interacted with life in general! It increased my awareness of my nighttime travels and even increased awareness in every aspect of both my physical and non-physical existence.

 It also led to a whole new "occupation". What I learn all the time in my travels, has led to the creations of all kinds of unique copper wire designs and other Art. It has really opened "channels" of all kinds. It has taught me to "trust" and to open up to all kinds of "messages" that are available.

Gosh, I don't know. It's hard to fathom. I suppose in one sense I am not as monetarily ambitious as others. Though I don't know if I can accredit that to my spiritual awakening or not. Since a child I was always, always fond of my dreams. I'd have rather spent my time there actually. I had a spontaneous OBE with eyes wide open in the backseat of my dads car by cloud gazing. It was a most beautiful and surreal sensation.

Also, not as typical- but perhaps still in the realm of OBE... Astral scents and phantom touches. And things made manifest only to disappear. But something I shared in a separate post- whatever is responsible for waking me up to this phenomenon doesn't seem to have the same sense of urgency as the little me attached to this body and personality. There's still so much more to discover... And I don't seem in any particular rush. It seems as I get older, the denser I've become- or, I have to work harder to feel that same sense of dispassion and detachment.

But I never feel so far away from the sense of Love and Wonder. I think it's quite possible I came here to bring harmony to my dense self by wedding the material and spiritual.

And I do not necessarily equate a lack of interest in worldly things as a sign of spirituality. Even a strong desire to make lots of money and bring about a famed existence is a spiritual journey.

I should have died twice now. And I haven't. I'm not testing my fate, just stating some facts. And it seems my contact experience has kind of taken a pause. The next leg of this life seems to be really geared towards stability and seeking a mate. Guess I am in the thick of regular old Earthly existence. LOL.

It is always really a magical thing when they happen, OBE's- hypnagogic moments, sudden insight and realization, non-ordinary states of consciousness... I think these things have changed me in a way that allows me to wear my heart on my sleeve... To embrace my humanness and keep a hopeful attitude towards it all. I may have developed the same without the AP... But I am certainly glad someone out there kept me in this beautiful realm of truth, beauty and goodness- of mystery and discovery... Of the deeper meanings towards life. I suppose APs, like so many other things, have humbled me. Have given me some breathing room to be me and not feel crazy or obsessive. And I am still plenty crazy. But perhaps this ability to cultivate awareness has taken root. That's likely *it. The way AP has enhanced my life. 

... *IT anchors me to the wonders and mystery of communication with God. Really there is such a deep sense of love and intrigue there, I sometimes feel drunk from ecstasy. What an amazing experience we are fortunate/blessed to have.

In one sense, AP has been the single, defining aspect of my life. I didn't start out thinking that way, but it still played out in that sense.

My early OB experiences were around the ages of 5 and 6, and they took on a sense of primacy for me; they were so striking and immediate upon my awareness. I tried explaining this difficulty in young consciousness to my parents but was met with indifference and disregard.

Honestly, it was my very strict Christian grandmother, who used to supply my brother and me with the monthly candy bars and comic books when we would visit...my brother always got the latest and coolest Marvel comix...Iron Man, Avengers and X-Men...I always got the lesser grade Donald Duck and Archie & Jughead comix...I was SO jealous...lol...I finally asked her for a better choice of comix...she responded in a totally unexpected way, by delivering to me a candy bar and a Dr. Strange comic...which introduced to me the idea, and visual of Dr. Strange sitting in meditation and leaving his body in ectoplasmic form...keeping in mind, I am about 10 at this time...that was SO fascinating to me!

Since then, AP has been a constant concept, an idea worthy of exploration...it is now an idea fifty years on that I have been exploring...it has confirmed for me ideas that are beyond the realization of my parents, grandparents, my siblings...these are subjects I cannot even talk about with them...they nearly almost have no comprehension...it is sad; but it is what it is...we keep on searching
