If you guys would like to read more about this, go into the "Astral Travel, and my Technique", and do a "phasing" search in (this topic)... there is a lot of info that I hadn't remembered.

Alij, check out "Anvil's"(bLu3 de 3n3rgy is the alias, now) post #4463 on page 289.  It stood out to me, and feel it's pertinent to your last post.

Thank you I did check this out. And this is something I have read and tried before...although I always feel its just stuff Im making up in my head-tho I DO want to tell about an experience with meditating.

I wont go through how long before I got to this point or anything though I did read a few books explaining you may begin or feel you are just making stuff up but to just go with it because at somepoint you really wont be making it up.....Now...

Once when I was trying I used a youtube video audio to help-it was basically a voice walking you through breathing and relaxing and up to a point in meditating then the rest was up to you.

It walked you up to a point where you go into the woods to an open medow or open area and then was to turn to see your guide......in my mind, or meditating this is what I saw....

I saw myself walk through an opening in the woods, that closed after I entered. I walked down this limited light path with trees around me till I came to an open area with bright white light shinning through, water in the center, almost like a spring or a hot sring (without the steem) I can't make out all the spirits, or beings I saw-but it was like they were all around this water, facing me. Maybe....7 or so? a handful at least there were many and its was like I was just amazed at so many there I couldn't pin point any certain one. (I do feel like I saw this older lady, one of which who resembled either my great aunt or great grandmother, and they were twins too....with a man Im asuming whom they were married to in this life before they past) There was a rock, big enough to stand on for one person at the front of this water in the center.

When I turned to see my supposed guide, I saw this cat like woman dressed in white-it made me think egyption style clothes. She had a cat ears at the top, curly hair, and her eyes stayed closed-like just a line BUT she smiled the whole time. She walked to water and moved her hand over it. As if signaling for me to come to the water and look. There was no words at all spoken durring this, as if all was mental for me. I walked over and leaned to look at the water and saw what I thought was my reflection. But this woman I saw, had my (natural hair color, and eye color) with a blue veil over her face. Her expressions matched mine like a mirror. I didn't think I just looked and was in kind of an awe state. I stood up and looked at this cat like woman who was still smiling with her eyes closed.

I dont remember if she walked off or what, but another woman appeared. Much like what I saw in the water reflection. Long hair, straight-with a veil..almost like a genie outfit (from I dream of genie) or a belly dancer. She had pants, and it was either pink or red-not blue like my reflection. She had so much energy, so much life. I could tell she was smiling even through her veil. Her eyes told me. She jumped on this rock, in front of me and mid point in front of all the other spirits behind her around the water.

She this motion....with her arms.....this energy of some sort...or light or something came from her as if comming to me. Then she jumped-my eyes followed her. She jumped in a tree and I had to turn my back to the water to see her. My attention was just on her. She bent down, knealing almost and just looked at me-and Im sure smiling to. I got this emidiate sense or feeling that she was saying "Even when you don't see me, I'm still here with you always." then jumped off into the woods deeper. She was so fast it was like just swipes of light or color then I didn't see her anymore.

I looked at the catlike woman once more, still smiling with her eyes closed and saw all the spirits. Some were looking at me, some were having conversations with each other (tho again I never heard any audio thorugh all this, I could just tell) I dont remember how I left but I remember when I was done, I had tears. It felt so great....

I had friends who knew my brother, who had been doing meditation years before me and more into AP and so much other stuff and simply looked at me and said ":You and your brother both are such visual people" I havn't had a meditation like that sinse.

After and even now when I think on it I wonder if I was just 'making it up' or sorta day dreaming and not really in a meditating state (tho while I was doing this i had no thought about sitting, or about anything...my mind..my everything was into these images I was seeing as if I was really there) I don't know what to make of it.

The woman who jumped intriqued me the most..so did the cat like woman....but Ive had some people say you dont have guides unless you are a medium or something and others say everyone has one and some have more then one....I just feel so confused over this. I would greatly much some insite or opinions from others over this. What does anyone else think on this?

so....any comments? Was it just a dream?

Over the last six months I've kind of learned, for me anyway, that there's no such thing as "just a dream"
There's always a message thats often obscured by fanciful imagry or ludicrous actions that our 3-d minds don't compute. The way I figure it, we are walking talking commodore 64 computers on a dos operating system. (old style pc) But when we dream and often enter 4th or 5th dimentional worlds the required operating system we are running there is Windows 5000, and as such the programs we're being run though are interpreted as dream-like dribble by our commodore 64 minds when we wakeup. Sometimes dreams stand out as important, sometimes not.. The ones that are being backed up or supported by emotions are very important imo.

I also have this fear(which i know fear will keep from doing so)-after reading about how there are so many beings, spirits, ghosts, etc I'm just afraid that as soon as I leave my body I'll see something...like smething will be waiting for me to attack me. Not my physical body, but my astral self.
I can safely say the beings I've seen havn't seemed unfriendly, actually they've seemed either benign or supportive, but I've not been able to conciously AP yet.. Have a good read though this thread.. Lot's of people have these same fears, and Ironically it seems that the fear it's self manefests these beings. Trying to AP if you are a fearfull person is probably a bad mistake.. I would try and conquer your fear first.. The way I figure it, thoughts become things in the borderlands/hypnogagic and astral, so, if you think your going to be attacked by a giant purple people eater then the chances are good that you will.

yeah Ive had visions when I begin (or fear creaps in) of a white looking face, a man or being of some sort that attempts to scare me, either screaming in my face or chasing me or something with this....aweful look. BUT one time I kept thinking about it, I quit trying to AP and think i slept into medidation of some sort-I started thinking that whatever would try to scare me is not actually bad or evil...or even I would talk to it or ask questions and later it would be nice to me. As if it started out evil or cruel or wanting to scare only to stop to me and become more of a friend level who talks to me and such then I eventually become more secure with. Just someting thats happened, but haven't experienced a true AP yet that I can recall so ...until then lol

•Hold on to your hat!! With practice and a little luck at first, what happens next might blow you away. Your body is going to start vibrating. It feels like a mild electric shock running through your body. It's not painful, but at first it can startle you. You will also begin to hear a massivly Loud noise. It will sound like a jet engine or a water fall. It could have a buzzing quality to it or a wooshing helicopter like sound. These are your exit signs.






Hey this happened to me before and I thought it was the strangest thing. I didnt have the vibrations but I did hear the very loud sound and felt crackling coming out of my head. It was like fireworks coming out of my head.. this happened in the bay area the thankgiving before last so a little over a year ago. This was right after I had a two week stretch of phychic dreams.. this is the first time I looked at this thread.. I had questions so why didnt I look here first? Ding dong... lol ok but thanks!  I have a longer story about vibrations, vertigo, and rattling in my head in my waking life that lasted for almost two years... this was before I ever tried to astral travel and I came across a book about it and started reading it and tried it but it never worked. But I always tried before I went to sleep and end up just sleeping. I never ended up reading the whole book or following any suggestions and just tried to jump out of my body, or like dance out actually. It was still fun even though it didnt work. But yeah the crackling noises and light shooting out of my head was very strange and I didnt want to tell anybody because I thought they would think I was crazy... now I see its normal! Im gonna try again.. thanks. :)

Hmmmmmm, this is difficult..
I think we're running the risk of carrying the same subject over two threads.. lol..

I guess though, from a Metaphysical sense, one's Ego should be identified and understood, & through identification and understanding comes the power to eliminate or control. Not sure about dissolution because that would create a gap for subtle ego to creep in..

That false humbleness.. lol, Yeah, I think I can relate to that too. I'd call it the subtle ego, the worse kind.. It portrays a false sense of self that thinks it comes from the true self but it's a product of self desire.. (at least that's how I perceive it) :lol: My subtle Ego is a know it all..

Loved blue's perspective on Ego btw, made a hell of a lot of sense and my Ego went "woo hoo!" because it confirmed I'm on the right track or mind-space with this thing..

False humbleness is inevitable because as soon as you identify yourself as humble you are no longer humble. You have to check yourself and start from scratch... if we were truly humble we couldn't even talk about it, but we must because its imporant. Fail/fail... now you can be humble again.. lol

Can being super duper tired increase chances of Astral Projection? Because When I'm tired my mind relaxed. And I even heard talking from my ears and cars when I tried it this afternoon.

Plus I live out the way and a large forest is behind my house.. And you can never hear cars where I live.

Yes I have found when i am completely exhausted and about to fall asleep is when i experience the Vibration stage of Astral Projection a lot of the time. And then that Electric Shock wakes me up :cry:  if im not trying to do it Naturally cause it startles you. Which then ruins me Separating from my Physical Body.

Ok so I have experienced one true asral projection ive mentioned it several times on this site but not on this thread.. I was fully awake and transported out of my body into deep space. I was accompanied by a guide who did not appear to be an angel. I cannot say for certain if he was human but I was not so concentrated on him but rather what he was showing me in space... I was fully aware of where my body was the whole time... now I have a question... I have had other experiences of "visions" (also occuring while wide awake) where I did not seperate from my body but rather I was transported into the spirit realm.. I was in my same body there was no seperation... are these similar in nature or completely different? To me they seem different..

  • This is the story of how I died.

Posted 21 January 2013 - 05:26 AM

I have been having off and on weird dreams lately. The weirdest one was my grandmother calling me in my dream. I picked up the phone and said "Hey gram, how are ya" she said "I don't have long to talk, can you tell (my nephew/her great grandson) something for me?

At this point I say "Sure" and my husband walks in the room and asks who I am talking to. I shrug and say "oh its just gram" then it dawns on me in the dream that she is dead. "Gram, aren't you dead?" I say.

"Yes, of course I am, now tell (grandson) that I am very proud of him because of the two fennel seeds."

Then she hung up and I realized the phone I was holding was one of those with a spiral cord connecting it to the phone base, and it wasn't plugged in. So I was just standing there holding a red phone dangling a cord.

--

At this point I semi woke enough to wonder what the heck she could possibly mean and I had some vibrations. One of the other times I have had vibrations, it was when my dead cat tried to tell me something in a dream and I woke up and drowsily contemplated it for a few minutes.

I have no idea what that means. Apparently I can only have vibrations after dreaming I talk to the dead lol.

Hey Spectral..
I had two very similar dreams last week followed by vribrations at waking..
Just wondering, was the feel of this dream any different from your other more normalish dreams?

Reason why I ask was the two dreams I had weren't normal dreams. There was a different feel about them..

id like to say you were very clearly hearing your spirit guide, and she was very clearly giving you instructions. they will always say things literally and matter of fact like. but if you are aware of your spirit guide, and this was not he or she, then i would say it's possible another secondary guide, or a past loved one, or simply a spirit you came into contact with. did you see a light source of any kind? possibly while mediating? sometimes the answer wont come to you until long after...so dont think about it too much, it'll come and you'll be like "thats what she meant!!!"

Here's an odd one that I can't make any sense of. Hope someone can point me in the right direction with this.
Last night I was teetering about the hypoganic state and getting flash glimpses of this and that for near 15 minutes..
Then out of the blue I got a very clear Clairaudient voice that said "Turn the light off Professor T"
It wasn't my inner voice. This voice was telling me what to do in a matter-of-factly or advisory way.
She sounded female, Etheral...
I was in the dark, so there was no light on to turn off?

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

so as far as projecting goes, ive still only succeeded twice. But i must say, quite amazing! i had sort of a question about the Chakra's though, i know if you can open them up and allign them all, your chances of AP are higher. So for me, i kind of just visualixe each one opening, and projecting a pure white light up and outward from each. I dont know if this atually alligns or open them, so thats my question...does it matter how we do it, so long as we "believe" we're doing it?

i layed down surring the day and tried projecting, after about an hour i started to vibrate and sink like, and then i just "poof" darted up and slammed into my celing, the bounced along the tile floor, until i made it outside, and i shot "{flew" straight up into the stars, and within a blink of the eye, i was with the person id meant to see and visit with. it didnt last as long as id like, and i wish i knew what i did exactly right that i was successful, becasue i havent been since. so the chakras, just wondering if theres a special way to open and align them, or visualizing and believing it are enough.

I think you are right, it was information given to me by a Spirit for sure.. The whole etheral voice and matter of fact delivery of "Turn the light off (Then my real name)" in hindsight, was from a source beyond my higher self.  This message was given to me on the 13th december. I thought that it might have been a cryptic way of telling me to have a rest, go to sleep, so I took a few days holiday from meditating.. as it was, this wasn't the case..

I think you are bang on with this..

The Answer came to me on the 20th of December. It's kind of raw and very personal.. But my Father passed away in Hospital a little over a week after the Spirit had told me to "Turn the light off".. So, Okay, Background.. When Mum died a few years ago an important gesture or ceremony for me was to open the Windows to allow her sprit to escape. I couldn't do that with Dad because he was in HDU which mean't the windows were unopenable.. So as it was a few minutes after he passed I felt the need to let him go, let him escape.. The answer came as I noticed the headlamp which had been left on since he'd arrived the day before was still turned on.. So I turned the light off.. Vwalla... That's what she meant..

This is my current interpretation to the event anyway.. There's another few hidden messages here as well that I'm still working through.. One being the importance of ceremony and gestures.. Another being intention..

Edited to add: You know, re-reading this post, the words don't seem to give the event much justice.. It was a powerful thing to light off..
