Quote from: Phildan1 on November 04, 2017, 14:42:36That's very good experience - relatively. I guess if we tend to practice in bed, it always ends up with unsuccessful attempts, relative to our sleeps there. I guess maybe my problem is partly in this issue too.If you release any emotions in the NP it will be highly fueled in a loop. I experienced this too many times. If I start to be angry because somebody "there" doesn't answer me the first time, I start to be angry and I just start to feel the immense buildup on that same emotion, which is crazy. I experienced sadness too, I was just crying in tears in a big school room, which was represented with pictures of "dead" japanese soldiers from a war thing (I'm European). We need to control it in both worlds unfortunatelly. I guess you had this problem, you were emphatic from the feeling and couldn't stop that.On one hand it is pretty cool that your own dad is interested in something, which the majority is not a little bit, not even our parents ordinarily, but for the second hand it only made my job much harder when I did a big dig for anything which I could find through the web because people are lieing in everything OR they desinformate you to the high with religious concepts. It only makes problems and blocks. I wish I never learnt that much crap at the first place about this.Oh too bad and sad he passed away RIP. Sorry I was reading it through while I was writing paragraph to paragraph.He is fine I guess in the transition area or in Focus 3 already, you shouldn't be nervous is he ok I guess. It is interesting that your "guide" took you to this scene to show you this. I guess this is rare to get the precognition about such kind of life situations but people do get it as so called dreams which are also NP travels.One thing is sure, if we force it, it won't happen. It starts to be worse in our life. If he was familiar with AP, it means that he is way ahead of the average humans in my opinion.
Quote from: Lumaza on November 08, 2017, 17:39:00 My condolences on your Father's recent passing/transition, APApprentice! It seems like this practice in general has given you a chance to change your focus. Keep with it and you will find your "answers"!
Quote from: APApprentice on November 09, 2017, 20:28:59Thanks Lumaza, really appreciate it.
QuoteHave you ever had that "drunk sensation" when out of body?
Quote from: Lumaza on November 09, 2017, 23:29:36 Your welcome! I have had that sensation before myself and many people do report moving "sluggish" as if in slow motion upon their immediate exit. Szaxx, here, says that's when you need to get further away from your physical body. The more distance you put between you as consciousness and your sleeping physical body, the easier motion seems to be. I had one time when I was 14 years old. I had just helped my Father unload a 18 wheeler transport truck at his work, that was loaded with Chlorine bottles. There must have been over 100 cases, but we did it all. That night, I awoke, became aware, that I was on the ground, on the carpet in my bedroom, crawling. I tried to scream for help, but no one came. I didn't realize until years later that that was actually a spontaneous OBE. When it had happened, all my Family was home, so if I was screaming here in the physical, it would have went noticed. But no one knew what had happened. I put the pieces together years later when I learned the actual meaning and symptoms of a actual spontaneous OBE. All I could do at the time was crawl. I had no idea what was happening. My body was so overtired from unloading all those cases and I guess that was the "trigger" for that spontaneous OBE experience. "Overexertion" is known to create spontaneous OBEs. I like the confidence you have. That will bring you more experiences. A trick I learned about many things I intend to achieve in life is to talk in "past tense", like I have already succeeded. Positive reassurance goes a long way as well!
Quote from: APApprentice on November 12, 2017, 10:29:12Thanks for the tip Lumaza. Tell me what is your projection success rate?
QuoteHad a very unusual OBE. My attempt wasn't successful the other day btw. Anyway last night I halfheartedly tried to project, got really relaxed and felt a few waves of vibrations. Decided to call it a night as my girlfriend sleeps like she's possessed lol kicking and hitting me at the worst times(usually when I'm close). So I lay on my left side and proceed to fall asleep. As sleep began to slowly overtake me I said to myself « generally when we're tired we fall asleep before the paralysis stage, which goes unnoticed. Why can't we program our minds to wake up when that chemical is released so that we can AP » it was a form of inner dialogue. So I fall asleep. Next thing you know, I become conscious. I feel this strangely pleasant sexual arousal. Kinda intimate but it's part of the experience. So I go with the flow, letting myself go not knowing what to expect. My understanding is that I woke up at some random part of the vibrational stage.
QuoteSylvan from Phase Evolution talks about « having a plan » for when you get out. My plan was to say an affirmation such as « take me outside ». . It's crazy how you remember everything when you're out. So I️ say « take me outside » but nothing happened so I️ took matters into my own hands. I️ jumped over the bed through the wall and then found myself violently slammed back into my body. I️ get out again and this time I️ remember what William Bulhman said « don't say it like a wimp, gotta have intent behind it ». So I️ say as loud as I️ can « TAKE ME OUTSIDE NOW « . I️ find myself downstairs in front of my balcony which is on the 2nd floor. I️ look around outside and see this cat. (Many cats in my apartment complex) the cat comes towards me and attacks me. I️ then say to the cat « go away cat. A struggle ensues, I'm wiggling my Astral leg trying to get it off. Then I'm like « f.ck this » I️ fly into my room in an effort to ditch the cat. Upon entering I️ notice something peculiar; my bed has no box spring, mattress was on the ground. Stood there for a second thinking about that. I️ then get in bed and suddenly recall a video where someone said that it's possible « to pull someone's Astral body out ». So I️ grab my girlfriend by the neck and attempt to yank out her astral body. It comes out and dissolves into thin air. Not really understanding what had just happened I️ say to her « babe are you there, are you in the astral » ( I'm still in my Astral body) and she says (from her physical body) « stop leave me alone » . I️ immediately returned to my body and sat up.
QuoteMixed feelings about this type of exit. I actually enjoy the vibrations/whirlwind/portal etc.. Has this ever happened to you?
Quote from: EscapeVelocity on November 13, 2017, 21:10:29APApprentice-My condolences, as well.The only idea I wish to add to the excellent conversation you are having with Lumaza is this:It is a common idea, and one that I also experienced, that our early OBEs are somehow 'powered' by the sacral or root chakra; the entire 'chakra theory' being something you either wish to consider or not. This promotes a very strong and noticeable sexual arousal in the physical body and that energy often carries over into our early Non-Physical experiences. Do not try to shut it down or turn it off; just recognize that it is there and likely providing the initial energetic impetus but also 'coloring' your NP experience to some degree. You figure out a way to manage it.Eventually, according to theory (and my personal experience) the energetic impulse for your OBEs evolves into other chakras, typically the Heart or Solar Plexus chakra, and once that becomes your power center, you begin to notice an issue with heartbeat and breathing...again, this is all normal. Disruptive, but normal.Good work.
Quote from: Lumaza on November 13, 2017, 15:01:34 I am about 75% from SP paralysis, OBE in the real sense of the term. Sometimes I get the symptoms of a approaching OBE, but then nothing. I think this is when I am returning from one, instead of actually beginning one though. My Phase session are almost always successful. The only thing that hinders them is extreme pain or some environmental occurrence, such as someone or something in the physical disturbing my concentration. Some people call that "sexual arousal" a form of Kundalini awakening. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini I have experienced so many weird things during SP episodes. For the longest time and still once in awhile now, I was feeling the sensation of having my ankles grabbed, then yanked, dragged down my hallway and out my patio window. Other times, it was more of a sexual sensations and still others it felt like some kind of "anal probing", lol. That one is really weird. I can understand how this can get confused with a Alien probing encounter. One time, I was dragged out by my ankles and pulled upside down to my bedroom ceiling, then spun like a top through my roof. I kept with that one until it became to much, then I "clicked out". Some famous authors of AP say that we click out when the encounter becomes to much for us to bear. Some kind of "system overload". I have read may books, PDFs and listened to many of the authors and speakers of Astral Projection. William Bulman is very good. He knows what he is talking about. He is talking from years of "his" own experiences. I listened to all of Sylvan's videos on the YouTube Phase Evolution channel and find that he (Sylvan) is still in the "learning" process himself. In my opinion, some of what he says is bad advise. He also parrots many of the other authors of AP and this causes "contradictions" in his teachings. Not every AP author takes the same approach to Astral Projection. He was/is a member of this Forum too. I explained that maybe he should learn more himself, before he teaches. He didn't agree. He hasn't been back since. I like that he is trying though. Lately his videos have been getting better, more informative. So do I. They are much more unique. Awaking instantly "ultra aware", hearing the "whirr" of the gentle Astral winds and feeling the pulsating energy sensations, the buzz, passively observing it as it all works to a "climax" and becomes constant, then just finding yourself there is a such a incredible experience. Sometimes, the first visual I get is akin to what you would call "tunnel vision". I wrote a thread years ago under my old name "Lionheart", that explained more about this. I had one of those experiences a few weeks ago. http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/tunnel_vision-t44765.0.html I have never attempted to "pull" another out of their body though, nor will I. I don't agree with that one. They can learn AP themselves. If they don't, it's not meant to be. That's my take on that.
Quote from: APApprentice on November 18, 2017, 12:33:00Do you find that consciousness diminishes the longer you're out? Or does it become sharper? How would you define being conscious in the astral?
QuoteThis is what I'm wondering; when we have a « to do list » and we exit and immediately begin accomplishing things on said list, are we conscious or is it simply a case of preprogrammed thoughts? For me, I do the things I set out to do when I'm out but I also carry out actions that are not conscious. I'll just do something without really thinking before doing.
QuoteI presume you've already passed your fear tests lol because had I been grabbed by my ankles , I would've opted out lol. Have you wholeheartedly embraced the idea that no harm can come to you? Lol Sometimes I'm tempted to to ask for help but the thought of feeling another being's hands on me creeps me out lol. Hopefully one day I'll become totally fearless like you
Quote from: Lumaza on November 20, 2017, 16:34:33Not necessarily diminishes. It just gets hard to keep your focus. This is why "click outs" occur. Sometimes you get in too deep and totally lose your "conscious" awareness on the scenario at hand. Other times we tend to click out too when the scenario creates a kind of "system overload" on us. Too much info, too intense, something creates a "shut down". Yes, intended target of destination is a must. You are now in a realm where thought = action is instantaneous. So now, you have to also learn how to control that "thinking" there. No, I still gets "fear tests". It really does help your awareness level though and yes, you have to trust. But that trust came through the notion that I have been experiencing this being touched thing, since I was a little boy. It used to terrify me and I immediately yanked the blankets over my head. But the more it happened, the more I realized that I always returned "unscathed" and by that understanding I developed "trust".
