Hi everyone! I go by Joey, or feel free to call me by my handle Cheesy.

It's been ages since I joined a community, especially on a subject I am obsessed with.

About me; I have always had a sense of the non-physical, and I had many paranormal experiences as a child all-through until my early 20s.

Sadly, in my late teens and early 20's, I began ignoring these experiences as most other people would shun or question what I experience. It's been nearly 15 years since then. At the time I couldn't explain the phenomenons of; seeing shadow people, physical items in reflections but not elsewhere, and an acute 6th sense that randomly occurs at times (sometimes flashes of the future, but it often is a bright white right before random disruption (sound or someone surprising me) happens.

I mention this because it was only recently (2 weeks ago) that I came across a random YouTube video that explained how AP techniques (was initially looking for lucid dreaming). The methods mentioned in the videos sounded strikingly similar to how I used to sleep growing up without knowing, except back then, I had no intent except for continuing a dream from where I left off from waking up.

Circling back to now, it seems like a lost skill. Since coming across that AP video, I've been relentlessly obsessed with AP and have been trying to do it with no avail. I plan to keep a journal of my journey since it helps me recollect focus and continue to pursue.

Anyways, thanks again for accepting me. I still have a lot to learn, I still cannot AP after trying the techniques. I believe I've gotten close a couple of times but haven't been able to actually make it happen. Reading about Frank Kipple's research has helped me focus and I feel a burning desire to learn how to AP and do my own research. This has also been getting me excited to go to sleep/wake up early each morning as well, something that hasn't happened since my teen years. Day by day, I feel like I'm getting closer to doing AP, but this is way tougher than what people say.

The more I try, the more I feel like I'm closer to finding something that I've lost that was once vital for me. I think my most significant pain point is that I rarely imagine with my eyes closed (99% of my imagination is with eyes open), so imagining movement is for me. People say 'you'll know' when you AP for the first time, but I haven't had that moment yet.

It sounds crazy, but I've dozens of images/experiences that I recall before I had 'real memories' (~age 2-3) that happened at some point in my life (mainly until the teens) and I have this feeling that can only be described as an inner voice that says 'don't forget'. But I don't know what I am supposed to remember, the only thing I do know is that the feeling in the back of my head is telling me that I'm close to finding it. I probably have way more questions than anyone has time to read, but for now I'll focus on learning to AP first.

Sorry if this post feels rushed, I shouldn't spend too much time here. But I'd rather do this compared to browsing social media or video games. There isn't much time left for me in this realm.

Welcome to the Pulse!

You can find some great ideas, theory and techniques in the blue ‘sticky’ sections at the top of each Board. The key to starting this and finding success seems to be that you have to immerse yourself in it for awhile, read about it, meditate and give yourself permission to do it. Then walk away from it for a week or two. For many of us, this is when a breakthrough happens, usually in an unexpected way, during a nap, middle of the night, a particularly lucid dream, etc.

So dig into it, study hard...but don’t get over-occupied or stressed about it. Trust that it will happen and unfold for you in its own unique way, time and place.

And feel free to ask questions. Have fun!
