Hello, I just thought I'll drop in and let you know how much good your advices has been to me.

Yesterday, after half an hour of meditating and relaxation, I thought it was time to try for the first time. It was exactly 8:30 in the morning, and since I didn't have school, I guessed it was the perfect time. After 3 or 5 minutes of laying down, I started feeling a tightness in my muscles and several Electric jolts snapped on my skin. For sometime, I couldn't actully feel my hand, it was like it wasn't there anymore. I decided it was time to stop since I felt that it is better to start slowly, so I finished my session and recorded everything in details in a small dairy that I consacred for Astral Travelling alone.

That is all, I am going to try again tonight. Your advices has been very helpful, thank you :)

Just want to share what happened about a 2 hours ago... At 3 PM local time I decided to take a nap....
With the thought as you suggested to just relax and take it as a practice session which may get me closer to achieving the first projection....


So while i progressed with the relaxation and reached a phase where i was only aware of the energy body and minimal background noises etc, I decided to just try out the technique that involves a "Switch in awareness" from my physical body to a point outside my body.. I visualised myself about 2 feet away in the same posture.. on the same bed... with the thought that once i fall asleep my consciousness would switch to the new position assumed by the astral body... However, i kept switching thoughts between being in front of the door of my room and to the position 2 feet away from the physical body.... While doing so i felt vibrations twice... after they died down i didnt know if i was out or not... Not wanting to lose the trance after the first vibrations died down  id dint want to open my eyes knowing that such an action was not necessary given that the astral body`s eyes are always open... I hence ruled out a succesful projection.... I continued for a while and when i got the vibrations again ( of milder intensity ) i decided to just get up... In doing so the session ended because i moved my physical body....


I then decided to lie in for a bit before getting about my work again... I assumed a comfortable postion and fell into a light sleep and started to have a dream... I then realised it was a dream and came back to what i thought was the real world... I then remembered a text that said the sleep-wake transition was a good time to project.... Knowing this i decided to just roll out of my bed... I experienced something really different... At that moment i thought it was a real projection... Once i rolled out, I really couldnt see anything... I then used my hands ( astral/dream.. dont know which) to just rub my face a bit after which I could see stuff clearly.... BUT... I didnt see myself on the floor... Didnt see any silver cord... My bed looked very different... My house wasnt the same though it did look similar to the real world house that i live in ( for some reason i broke the law of not stepping out on the first projection )..... I flew around a bit with little control and then woke up in the real world thanks to the phone ringing...



The above is what I`m convinced is a lucid dream at least... I probably just dreamt of having a projection... But the sensation of separation from the physical body was something i havent felt ever even in a dream... Probably my mental projection of what a projection would be like...


So... Just thought I`d share this with you in the hope that you could guide me further...


Thanks
Good job!!!!! Sounds like progress. Yes I like to be awake when I separate.... But that does not mean you did not project. It's like learning to walk. Astral spaces in real time is more like a shadow/mirror world of this one. Remember out of body you are not seeing things with your eyes. There is not light stimulating your brain, nor are you touching with your hands or hearing with your ears. It takes a while to understand your environments without really using your bilogical senses. Your awareness is your only sense. and there are some increadible things you can do when you finally understand this.

Oh, I have never seen that cord. But I have certainly felt the body connection. It's no fun to be out of body when a five year old jumps on you. It's like instant vertigo and being flung across the room.

Keep it up... You are on the verge of a breakthrough.

Ok, I'm having really bad problems with sleep atm. Like I can crash straight away several times a day.

Last night I got all comfortable focused on what I use to think of as galaxies (I use to love watching them behind my eyes when I was a child)it only lasted about 40 secs before my brain unleashed the days events and I crashed for the night.

Today I just lied down and I actually focused on my galaxies for a few minutes then drifted quietly off to sleep at least my brain shut off for a while lol.

Another question so if you get to the vibrating state and lift up are you awake, asleep or in-between? Also does your body automatically always pull your essence back before waking or are you meant to head back yourself?
You can do it either way. Only a few times did I actually go back and get back in my body, then I realized I don't have to.

Your body is asleep but your mind is awake. When you cone back from a successful journey it does not feel like waking up. It just feels like you opened your eyes.

Tia, are you using presleep or morning methods. It sounds like you are not. If you are attempting to do this at night without presleep you are going to have trouble. You should be trying early in the morning after your mind is rested.

Thanks so much...

Have you actually seen yourself when you project?? Can you see yourself?? I kinda have it in my head that when i get out and look at my own physical body its a sign that i`ve succeeded in a conscious projection and not a lucid dream about projecting....

Considering my previous post what is your opinion?? Was i right about the lucid dreaming or do you feel i might have had a conscious projection...??


Thanks again... I really appreciate you taking time off to speak to us and motivate us...

Yes I have. But at first I didn't. I wasn't sure if I was projecting or dreaming either. So I went to my bed. Nothing was there. But as I looked at it, I could sort of see an impression then I sort of materialized right there. After that I could see myself. This is like my problem with walls. As you start to understand your mind, you are going to find out that sponsoring thoughts are stronger and more real than the other thoughts that they lead to.

By purposely looking for yourself as a check the sponsoring thought is actually one of disbelif. Remember in these places we are no longer in physical reality. Thoughts are very powerful. Now, I am not going to tell you the fluffy excuse of you have to beleive... Indeed this will have the opposite effect.  Instead cultivate a purely observational and indifferent state of mind. This is why people that spontaneously project often see themselves. They are simply trying to understand without prejudgments so their expectations are pure... Or rather non existant.

Another thing you will learn is that concousness is a continuum. Eventhough we experience traveling during AP as movement it's actually an expansion of awareness. Internal and external separation is an illusion.  Anvil would be much better at explaining this than me. I still need the visuals and Human sensations.

Do lucid dreaming VS AP.  How do you tell? one it's all on the continuum of awareness, but dreams are almost always scenerio driven. Normal Dreaming is your minds way of keeping your awareness busy because it's impossible for it to be truely Unconcous. If things are happening to you characters and story's will occur. Usually AP... Nothing is happening unless you make it happen. Just like physical reality. For the most part with some exceptions you can just sit down on your sofa.  That dosn't mean that your mind didn't travel during dreaming though.

Consider your awareness ( you) a one dimentional point. It can get wraped up in the processes of your brain, physical reality, or it can slip into the substrate dimentions and zing to any part of reality in an instant.

I don't mean to be cryptic but often often the things we learn do not have language equvlents.

I kinda get what you`re trying to say... Will try just being an observer... For a start...
I guess you`re also trying to say that a lot of answers come via experiencing things first hand..??
So... yeah will work on it...

I dont think the perceptions during the lucid dream/projection were what is actually described by people who consciously project as hightened though...It was kind of dream like... Maybe there`s a lot on my mind right now that could cloud my perceptions/sensations on that plane?? Caught up too much in the various stressors of day to day activities..

I`m starting to understand things a little more clearly now.. Thanks
Will let you know my progress as it goes on...

Hello everyone, good information on the techniques being used they've worked great for me in the past. I have some questions..

My whole life Iíve experienced sleep paralysis so Iím comfortable enough to discern this from actually lucid dreaming. Regarding my perceptions and preconceived ideas at the time,  from my own personal  experience at that time when I was first messing around with astral travel I hadnít found that many sources so I didnít have much to go on.. so not to many pre conceived ideaís. I was researching how the military was using remote viewers since they conducted a lot of research and money toward this, which gave it some validity for me.

I started practicing, one night I was just starring at my body, the next night I wanted to try and separate from my body and try to read something on my desk, (to prove to myself if this was accurate or If I was just dreaming..)  The next night when I finally successfully separated from my body I was going up, stoked on the fact that it was actually working, then an entity (archon?) confronted me (appearing as if it came from a different realmÖdimension..i donít know or from behind a veil, a lot like the classic  powell peralta logo). Maybe this entity could be considered one of those Astral Vampires?

Well after that encounter I just started reading a lot trying to figure out what this thing was, I came to the conclusion that it was an archon by the descriptions Iíve read. It looked a lot like LAM, the entity that Aleister Crowley encountered but skinnier with a smaller forehead.

For the past two years Iíve been researching occult material so I feel a little more comfortable practicing, so I started again. However recently Iíve been running into difficulty separating from my body, I lie stuck in sleep paralysis. One night I awoke in sleep paralysis mode (I was sleeping on my stomach) and was viewing my body where I then came under attack I guess you could sayÖ pretty much was getting molested Ö so currently Iím just wondering why that happened, what was doing it,and how I can prevent this.

As for the previous encounter, this is the best explanation for what i saw concerning the Archons.


"The Archons may be regarded as progeny of Sophia, but not in the same sense as species born and sustained in Gaia's womb, the terrestrial biosphere. In fact, they are called Archons (from the Greek archai, "primordial, first, antecedent in time") because they arise in the planetary system before Earth was formed into a habitat for life. Sophia's unilateral Dreaming produced a power surge from the cosmic center, and the Goddess, shooting forth like a torrential current, impacted the inert fields of primordial matter in an unusual way. Gnostic texts use the term "aborted fetus" to describe the results of this impact..

A veil exists between the world above, and the realms that are below; and shadow came into being beneath the veil. Some of the shadow became matter, and was projected apart. And what Sophia created became a product in the matter, like an aborted fetus.
(The Hypostasis of the Archons, 94: 5 - 15)  "
Anyone know anything in depth about these archons?

I don't know much about that lore... There Is as much material like that as there are cultures.  I do know that many including myself have experienced a similar entity. The phenomenon has been labeled the guardian. It's as much of a reflection of anxiety and lak of confidence as it may be an attacker because you may be weekend by those things. I have my own theories, but those that experience it ( and it's not everyone). The solution has two parts. 1) set a trap for it after it attacks. Pretend to sleep but really be in a position to Jump out of body and attack it furiously. It will come back while you are pretending to be asleep. Then fight with it furiously and try to pinn it somhow. You will succeed.

2) during your Next journey or right after, go looking for it on purpose, you be the hunter. When you find it. Stomp it out of existence. When you come back from this a huge weight will be lifted. You will feel all anxiety leave you forever.

Personally I think it's either 1) a mifestation of fear itself 2) a guiding spirit that challenges you to the point of action and sets you on a process to rid yourself of fear. An initiation off sorts.

Trust me I was shocked to find out that I was not the only one who went through these exact sequences before gaining knowledge out there.

Good luck

Let me know how I can help.

Right this is a good one to discuss. I have followed the discussion between yourself and Seeker, but wanted to track back to this part to offer my perspective.

First of all i want to say don't convince yourself of anything just yet. Hopefully this comes out in a way which makes sense and if not, please do say so as this can get complex and quite long.

It is not uncommon to project and perceive your everyday surroundings as a slightly distorted version of what you 'know' as being structured in 3d reality - 3d is what we call the physical plane.

One of the greatest eye openers for me was learning how things structurally exist and 'share space' in other dimensions. We may assume and expect that once we are comfortable with accepting 'multi dimensions' that everything is an exact replica, rigidly stamped upon every dimensional layer and space between, but it is not the case. When we experience distortion of our surroundings, is a sign of a couple of things.

1. External reasons:-

  • Dimensional layers overlapping in that particular spot. Everything energetically speaking is always vibrating, layers do shift around and dimensions are not all on the same level or 'quality' - lower/higher.  When i am aware of this happening I call it criss crossing. It's like experiencing 2 places say on earth, 2 places that in 3d have 150 miles or 6000 miles distance between them, but become criss crossed for whatever and so become aligned within the same 'space'. Meaning when you are projected or just sensitive enough you may be able to perceive this criss cross. This also ties into the subject of portals and vortexs which are naturally centred around the earth. And this also explains i feel some kinds of hauntings and ET experiences people have.
  • Time. Time is a subject on it's own right for the astral projector, but sometimes overlaps and distortions are time line related and once you get your head around time as energetic flow, it can affect areas on a local level. Past, present, future, time and distance does not serve to the same rules they do in 3d. Time and distance is completely irrelevant. For instance for a period of time every time i projected and was aware of my local area I saw how an existing building which i knew inside out was now looking completely different. It was rebuilt, refurbished and extended in size. And it was not a one off to see this. It had extra rooms and floors and stairwell. A year or so later it was announced the existing building was to be extended and refurbished. And the work was carried out to completion. So, what i was seeing was how structurally it had changed energetically on the astral level before it was physically altered at another time.  

2. Internal reasons:-

  • Your own perceptions. Sometimes perceptions can be 'off' skewered or just not able to comprehend the reality of what is there, making things appear in away which only you can interpret and if there is not a sufficient true way to interpret (lack of experience) then what i call your "nonsense filter" is triggered to fill in the gaps. This being your ego and where belief systems/societal programming is attached. Not to go off topic but this is why you will come across the good advice time and time again of working through your issues, fear issues and putting ego aside.  The more you can shed and empty of your "nonsense filter" the less influence it has on you and the less influence other things can have on you. What you see is relative to what you understand and this grows as you develop and experience more. It is why the same entity may appear to one person as a demon but to someone with no nonsense filter influencing, they simply see another being and will have a clearer picture of the beings intentions.
  • Level of consciousness. It would be wrong to ignore this part at this stage but won't be something you have to worry about at the moment. I wrote briefly in my second post about this also. Just like with the concept of mulit dimensions, ie astral levels/realms, we our selves are multi dimensional beings as far as our different levels of consciousness goes. We can use astral projection to explore the higher aspects of our consciousness and true being - "higher self"  - to me that is the true goal of astral projection.
  • However our ego consciousness and what seeker describes as our 'animal mind' can be a level of consciousness which if engaged will affect profoundly the level of astral experience.

1. your running with your most primitive set of filters and blinkers on at this level. so how you perceive your environment, entities, things will alter.
2. if this is the level of consciousness you are holding and energetically being (most people are in ego-consciousness constantly in their day to day being and never shift) then your astral experiences will reflect this. Again this is why the good advice of dealing with any major emotional issues is well heeded.

Anyway back to the next point:-

Quote

Probably my mental projection of what a projection would be like...

Mental projection still counts as astral projection. Projection is projection whether one is awake or in a sleep state. Conscious projection is projection with the intention to consciously project in real time, again either mentally or full body. Mental projection is less work, takes less energy and allows one to project while awake/multi tasking etc. Just something to consider.

Also I feel while reading your details that while I didn't leave my body, well I've never looked back when I use to meditate a lot I would go to speak to spirits etc in different areas I would often get the light feeling etc. Is there a connection in the fact if you can meditate and like I said it's been a while the Astral travel may be easier?

Also thanks for putting this up Anvil, it's always been a topic I wasn't sure of but I am forever getting picked on for saying I've had contact with yowies so I've really been a hyprocrite. :unsure:  :mellow:  


Yes if you have the experience of speaking to spirits/guides and meditating, then you are essentially mentally projecting when doing that. You should find using the same technique easy to mentally project to astral travel somewhere or full body project if you desire.

Yes the "animal mind". I recently faced this full force, sort of on purpose Afterwards I searched for like experiences and I found when the buhdda faced and over came the demon hords of Mara it was a very similar experience.

Our tendency to guess the lion in the moving grass is  our biggest challenge. I feel after the above incident, I have finally shed it.  Now my inner voice is louder, and I'm starting to be able to connect with a few guides without full body projection. Though it's very rudimentary...

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Just thought I should add on to the FAQ section of this post

Q: Do I HAVE to be at home laying down to project?
A: Not in the least, some people like myself can project in full motion like say while im walking I can project. (yes I do stop walking, and the lights are on but nobody is home.)

Q: Does it hurt?
A: Depends.

Q: What does it hurting depend on?
A: Every person projects in different ways, having different side effects, and for different lengths of time. If projection would hurt for you, only you could tell.

Q: Im of a certain faith that might consider this witch craft or devils work is it?
A: Absolutely not. This is simply your soul traveling outside of your body much the same as it would if you were to go to heaven. How else did you think you would get there?

Q: I have no spiritual connection, can I project?
A: Believe it or not, if you're alive you can project. It has nothing to do with spirituality and everything to do with knowing your soul, and allowing it to travel freely.

Q: Is it true that projection can last for long periods of time?
A: Projection can last as long as you can handle it, how long exactly that is.. Well only you will know.

Q: Is projection as hard as it seems?
A: No. Projection is 100 times harder than it seems, but once you manage to do it, it starts getting easier.

Q: How many times have you projected and where did you learn to project?
A: I've projected thousands of times, and i'm a 5th generation "shaman" or "witch doctor" we have knowledge we pass down from one to the next and thus even a relatively young "shaman" like myself can be just as well-versed on certain subjects as someone 3 times his age.

Q: Does projection really take you places?
A: At first, I didn't go anywhere but a few feet away. Now I can go to countries i've never visited and tell you how they smell, how there food tastes, and how there accent sounds.

For right now thats all I can come up with that I can contribute to the Q&A. If i think of more i'll go ahead and add on.

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.

One night I awoke in sleep paralysis mode (I was sleeping on my stomach) and was viewing my body where I then came under attack I guess you could sayÖ pretty much was getting molested Ö so currently Iím just wondering why that happened, what was doing it,and how I can prevent this.

As for the previous encounter, this is the best explanation for what i saw concerning the Archons.


I respect what Seeker says about the guardian encounter and know for myself that we really do get tested and that involves being roughed up. So we learn to stand on our feet, and assert ourselves correctly and not fearfully or negatively.

Sometimes however situations happen and something gets through and well like anything that's what you're prepared for.

When paralysis is attempted/involved in a form which I know is more than just classic SP (I have my own way of knowing because my sensory perception of my energy body/field/space is good) that i will confront whatever is intentionally attacking my energy body/field, as i know when it's a breached line so to speak.

If however i see something there watching, I will try and communicate and determine what's happening. I go into higher self for sorting through these things and know that not everything just because it gives presence to our awareness, poses a threat.

All i can say is we are always kept on our toes and it's what we learn and how we respond that really matters. We still gain from every experience the unpleasant ones too.
