Whats your technique for remembering dreams better? The technique that i have been using for a couple of years now is i say "I will remember my Dreams" 5 times before i go to bed. It works pretty good but i am open to new techniques because i only seem to remember bits and pieces of dreams not the full thing.

I dont have a technique. Meditation helps. Remembering my dreams more throughly is simply a result of my awakening

Infant in this subject

Background: belief in higher power, not the conventional god, as I feel they've taken the bible way too literal. Slightly aware of certain touchy subjects such as- anunnaki and their history. Greys, Pleiadians and the messages from the alien from andromeda. Just to kind of get a feel of the kind of person I am.

Where to begin....
Started looking into astral projection probably a week ago after a friend of mine turned me on to it. Felt as if I had some kind of calling and when he was describing it, i could picture myself flying through space with the silver chord, just stars, nothing really to landmark where in space or which dimension/reality my mind automatically chose to fly through.

At the same time I began looking into spirit guides and meditation everyday since then, I have tried contacting them, asking to meet, asking to see them. This past Sunday I was at work as I open a store by myself so I have about 2-3 hours of alone time and I kind of went on auto-pilot and I'm not sure as to what happened but I remember consciously saying that I believe they're with me to help me and I got this overwhelming feeling of almost euphoria/strong chills and my eyes teared to the point I could run them down my face. That evening I spent probably 2 hours meditating/listening to binaural beats to try to AP since I had asked my guides if we could meet on the planes/if they could help me to project, every time I asked I would get chills. (I actually get chills almost anytime I think of spirits. Sometimes my eyes tear up, sometimes they don't, but ALMOST always I chill.) if anyone could explain this to me I would greatly appreciate.

The research I have done and the information I've absorbed has been extremely intriguing as it has basically given reasoning to literally everything I do in my free time, unknowingly. Ex. I unknowingly practice spatial awareness techniques when I'm not active in a conversation. (I'm a strong introvert, so I generally do not speak unless I have something of extreme value to the topic at hand.) or if I'm eating in public, I will try to see my table/me/whoever is with me from 3rd person, I will basically see myself eating while I'm watching myself from across the room. I will also, if there is a window, look at the place i am in from across the street and let every car that pass by obstruct my view as if I was actually standing there. The little things like that.

Now onto AP and my attempts.

I have so many questions but I will start out with just a few.

1. I have never felt any vibrations. But I can usually feel my head/lower limbs being heavy and my upper torso feel like its arching my back. I get sensations of my head turning/arm/legs moving when they're not. Sometimes I feel as if my body as a whole is spinning like a top/rocking like im in a boat. But never any vibrations so I never intentionally try to exit. What should I try? I feel like since the floating sensation is the most common I should stick to it?

2. Tuesday night of this week I tried again. (I try every night, and will begin trying mornings as I've read many people are too tired at night...) well Tuesday was the most interesting I have experienced. I was laying in bed, listening to a guided AP and I remember probably 20-30min in it was telling me I was a cloud and I felt as if I was a cloud. Weightless, just floating but it was still dark, I don't feel like I was seeing through my 3rd but I just imagined I was wrapped up in clouds and I could see the white whisping around me. Shortly after that I remember blanking and calling to my guides to show me past lifes/show themselves/help in projection. I kept repeating all these questions over and over and I began getting random images, the first which I'm not sure as it was extremely unclear and kept moving around, not allowing me to focus. But I do remember it was either 3 beings, 1 in front the other 2 half behind and kind of resting on its shoulders, only showing half of their bodies. This quickly changed to a single entity centered in my nueral discharges and was almost like a blank face that changed to the "no rage face meme" with a slight smirk, at first I felt a little uneasy and asked my guides to help and quickly pushed that image away and then pictures of color started showing, the only one I can vividly recall was 3 men of royalty at almost some kind of colonial battle or war. I knew they were royalty because they had the triangular hats and were on the horses at the front. After that I can't remember anything and even though I slept for around 9 hours the next day I was more tired that usual.

I'm not sure what i experienced, but from what I read It wasn't an OBE, since the common denominator is that you will KNOW that you were out of your body.

Any insight to this is extremely appreciative.

It's sounds like you are absorbing information well with an open mind, I'd say keep it up, you are doing fine.

"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. "

I am trying. Along with random meditation throughout the day to stimulate the pineal. I remember I would have to focus intently with no distractions on it to feel any kind of warm/tingly sensation, after only a week of conscious meditation I can stimulate it in the middle of a conversation. Sometimes it feels like my head has blocks on it, but I'm fully conscious of it even while engaging in conversation. Is this similar to the dual consciousness?

One more question:

When I'm fully trying to relax, it's almost as if my eyelids start to retract and bring me back to physical awareness? Is this normal, do you have any ideas of how to stop it?

Let your eyelids remain partially open. Let them find their own relaxed position.

when i first started reading this thread last night, i had no idea what astral projection was, and i just got a bad vibe after reading it in general. I woke up this morning with a completely different attitude. i woke up early and even attempted to try it. there is still a part of me thats like this is such a bad idea but i cant find a reason that it is a bad idea i guess you could say. did anyone else feel like this before they attempted astral projection? i want to try it im just big on listening to my gut instinct and i feel good about trying and then i dont so im a bit at war with myself at the moment.

That is common windy. It is a good idea to be cautious about anything that you are going into that is unfamiliar. Your gut is indeed there to keep you safe, so it should be listened to, yet it is also an animal instinct so it must be managed. The other places are the very definitions of the unknown and the human animal has a very good reason to fear the unknown so your anima plays a large part in your gut reactions. It also must be understood and tames. One of the more enlightening products of this practice is that you learn how to conquer many many fears a. That doesn't mean your anima goes away. It is as intelligent as you are. I still have fears that i cannot control. Mostly surrounding worry for my children. But that's what the human experience is about. Without the duality life would not be interesting. I can assure its perfectly safe to engage in this. Your only risk is a few sleepless nights and some huge WTF moments when you experience something so incredible that you cannot even put it to words.

As promised some relatively interesting progress!

Started the dream journal as suggested on every other page. Began to remember my dreams better for the past few days. Normally don't remember many dreams as I never put too much thought into them. Found a couple patterns in them, hopefully ill be able to become more conscious in them and turn lucid.

Anyways last nights is the most interesting, meditated before sleep, was having difficulty turning off the chatter and couldn't sleep if my life depended on it. Only got a few hours but when I woke up to turn off/snooze alarm still 90% asleep, I remembered having a short little episode pertaining to my work (theme of recent dreams) and skipping back and forth to this ODD library. I have been trying to contact/set up a meeting with spirit guides for the past week. Anyways, when the dream would switch to the library which resided in some old clock tower, there was this short little man, probably 5'5", gray/white hair, black rimmed glasses, resembled woody allen almost, super nice, all I remember him saying is something along the lines of, "It's been awhile since we met"/"I haven't seen this in awhile," while he was holding a painting. (Tried drawing the picture in my dream journal, had no idea what it was)At that point I woke back up. Continued with my day. A friend of mine and I had agreed to go to this guided meditation class, or what we thought, turned out being more about Buddhism and dharma. During the meditation part however is where things get interesting. I notice this black and white almost as if a spotlight was in the center of my vision but not as clear as a spotlight more faded, but in the white circle was what appeared to be a man sitting in an office chair rocking back and forth while spinning, he had no face, it was a silhouette yet I could just tell they were smiling at me.  at one point my right ear popped, sounded inside my head, but thought it was just my friend getting comfortable next to me, as well as ive had terrible ear problems on the right, had 4 sets of tubes when i was a baby, then it happened on the left side. THEN the black silhouette appeared full size in my face, could only see his black silhouette of a face down to top of shoulder, all while in the background it was as if a paper copier laser was going back and forth across my vision with bright light.

Also, the picture that the librarian was holding was actually on the cover of the meditation class I went to. Happened to be the 8 fold paths, with the white lotus not just being in the center but extended its leaves between each path of the wheel.

Still no OBE, but I feel like everything is happening as it is supposed to and im just patiently waiting for the time we meet in a higher plane, either way, interesting none the less.

Is it true that you can spy others person in real time during astral projection?
If not what does Astral world look like?

You cant spy Voodoo but you can see. The difference is intention. Being out of body you tend to manifest sponsoring intentions. Spying on someone really is an act of fear and aggression. Even if you are just curious. This will be mirrored back upon you because you will manifest the fear and aggression. Now you can see plenty of people incidentally or you can go to them if your intentions are to heal or comfort. You must make sure your true intentions are in line with what you want to accomplish. If you are not totally true with yourself your higher self will be.

It looks like many thing. 3d looks just like this world other places can only be experienced through metaphor because you have no reference for them.

At what point do you folks experience the vibrations? From the techniques I have noted that they are suppose to be present once the body has been sufficiently relaxed and the mind kept still for a certain period of time. I believe not ever experiencing the vibration state has been the main barrier to my success.

Yes you have it about right. I have been able to creat near instant vibrations before, but my mind has to in the right spot. Are you trying the morning methods?
