I want participants for an Astral Projection Expt.
Edit: An updated blog post with everything you need to know. Do not read the “Why” if you plan to participate, it will spoil it.
1) Being comfortable with being very high on mary jane is used, so if that isn’t an option, you must be willing to deprive yourself of sleep to a point of being very tired (maybe 3-4 hours post bedtime).
2) You need to, at some level, enjoy electronic music, with a strong bass. This there is little exception and if this is altered its no longer my experiment, but would still be interesting.
What you’re going to do:
•Smoke a great deal of weed to a point you consider to be very high.
•Get relaxed in bed, shut off all the lights, preferably at night so there is little light.
•Have an MP3 player handy with some quality headphones.
•Play songs in shuffle from these two albums:
Infected mushroom – Converting Vegetarians
Infected mushroom – Viscious Delicious
It MUST be these two albums. It is better if you haven’t heard them EVER before.
When you are comfortable and relaxed, turn on the music, shut your eyes, and zone out to only the music.
Turn it to a comfortable level, not too loud, but so you can hear every beat and sound easily. As the song progresses, slowly increase the volume! The music should reach a point where it is the only possible thing to focus on – not painfully loud, but loud beyond anything else.
My hypothesis; You WILL astral project. You will find yourself in space, or some void where your body is stretching and contorting and dancing with incredibleness.
Notes: I want these albums first because I need to understand something of these.
I do not doubt that other music can easily induce the same effects, but I want to make sure of something with these.
If anyone is up for this challenge, please post here. I need participants!
I’ve done it a hundred times and its an absolutely fantastic unbelievable experience for me.
I tried it after smoking about 5 hits off a bong and 5 hits from a pipe. Needless to say I was real high.
So I tried to get comfortable, I started listening to both albums. However at first all I wanted to do was move to the music. But after some what concentrating on the music I felt a weird kind of head sensation, not quite sure how to explain it. And I had a hard time concentrating on specifically the music, my mind kept on wandering toward odd subjects and memories.
I think I might have been a little bit too high for it.
I’ll try it again soon with a smaller amount of smoking.
@ijesuschrist I’m gonna do this tonight. I wont be high. But im gonna be exhausted. which is good, right? I dont smoke weed regularly enough to fit this in high sometime in the near future. Everyone here seemed to have this cool experience, and i can be super relaxed totally sober so hopefully i’ll get something!! I want to try it before you post about the second part. So i guess ima post this comment, then not check highexistence until tomorrow morning/far later in tonight. Are you gonna start a new thread for the second part? I’m really intrigued as to what is happening!!!
@sahtea, Save the song “Vicious Delicious” till at least 3 or 4.
You will orgasm in your head and reality will become secondary to your experience.
@francina, I won’t make a new post until I’m satisfied. I’m not satisfied yet. And actually I still won’t give out my intentions in part 2, part 2 will just be a follow up… the project still has a ways to go.
@ijesuschrist, I couldn’t get into it at all. I did have an interesting experience the other night. I was in that sort of state as if you were day dreaming, but it happens to me just before I fall asleep. It’s like a state in between consciousness and unconsciousness. I sometimes slip into this state if I’m extremely tired, but haven’t quite learned to manipulate it completely. It may possibly be the beginning of lucid dreaming, I’m unsure. I had this ‘dream’ that I was in line waiting for this boy I felt strongly for. I was to order food for the two of us and wasn’t exactly sure what to order. There was a guy infront of me, the lady at the register insisted I cut infront of him that he didn’t know what he wanted. Then I reassured her I was just as unsure myself as to what I wished to order. She was recommending things to me and all the sudden I felt this onset of being stoned, but I hadn’t smoked. Then everything became hazy and I stumbled backwards into the wall and I faded out of consciousness with everyone rushing around me. I feel like it signified how I feel my life is out of control. The funny part is that I had another mini ‘dream’ that my mother called and told me she couldn’t afford anything anymore and we were going to have to give up the more luxury things. I tried to act as if I wasn’t happy, but inside I just felt this feeling of content wash over me. It was just weird how vivid these ‘dreams’ were. Sorry, if this is too off subject, but I thought you might find it interesting.
Great idea. I ironically, have done this before while listening to infected mushroom – classical mushroom. Subconsciously I would imagine astral thoughts. The music just sounds like it’s taking you throughout space and the universe.
Holy shit dude. Just did this now, sober but up like 4 hours later than usual.
I listened to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5pzKKMa3iU this because my laptop is at home and as such so too is my itunes.
forewarning, i wish i hadn’t read everyone elses’ experiences first. im not too sure whether i’ve had mine because i was expecting them or becuase they were real. anyway.
it started like i was really manipulable. like water. just floating slowly stretching lengthwise and then shrinking a bit again. i felt like i wasn’t really confined by anything but i was still my being. just floaty.
this energy began under my skin though. it thrumed through me, not vibrating but a cold sensation i guess. like each of my muscles had been in a cold shower but i had just hopped out. so it was cold but warm at the same time.
Um it then kinda got orgasmic hahahahaha. idk if you want me to go in depth into this. but basically, all my muscles started tensing without me realising. i feel this tightness down through my chestbone and through my core as a sensation tingles out in a radiating fashion. so that was like 12 minutes into the youtube video. and it was fucking amazing, the feeling. it was like joy and happiness and realisation and awareness all at once. there was this fantastic sequence where it was like waves of pulses with pulses going straight through it too. idk if you’ve ever seen a picture of wavelengths of light but thats how i imagine it when im listening hahah im weirddddd. but that was like my maximum ecstacy, that build up and then just cut loose. I just sound like im describing an orgasm hahahahahahhahaha,
and then holy fuck like 15:00 or something that creepy fucking bell started tolling in the background and the music got all tense and dark and i started freaking out in my head like it was some night graveyard scary scene in a movie. ugh wtf it still has my pulse racing. i got so scared. immediately sat up and pulled off my earphones. i didn’t want to hear anymore. so i stopped around then!!
and i’d just like to say thank you for introducing me to these guys! they are so brilliant! i cant even put into words how eye opening this was. you probably dont want me to get any more indepthy because this probs sn’t making a bunch of sense coz its late and im a wee bit wired and still trying to make heads or tails out of these feelings right now! i think ima do this again one day soon. maybees report back. maybes not. i dunno. but im worried that i only felt what i felt because i had read it over the past couple days.
ANYWAY. hope this aids you in whatever way possible!
I’ve tried this two times now. Both times I have been:very high, sleepy, laying down. I figured my earbuds would have to do, but I might try to borrow some Sennhes from friend next time. Anyways, about half-way through the first song, I felt an intense sensation coming from between my brows. I can’t remember anything that can compare to the unique feeling, almost as if someone was holding his finger there. It was a light, warm press and although it didn’t feel like a headache, it did feel as though it was a sensation from under my skin.
i can`t astral project because i`ve been wandering ever deeper into the Jungian swamp consciously.
@ijesuschrist, Me and my friend did this and were talking to each other as we experienced it. I was seeing a future alien race of cyborgs that were calling me to open up a rip in time-space so that they could interact with us and give us their knowledge. My friend said that he was seeing robot creatures in the room and everything was pulling toward a higher consciousness. We smoked a bowl each of pineapple express mixed with blue vortex.
@francina, Oh yeah I know what you mean… I get waves of euphoria through the body. Theres been times where my jaw drops and my eyes water and I feel like I can’t possibly get any higher, and then it DOES and I’m like exploding in every inch of my body.
@kkainoa, interesting, but not very eventful hmm?
Alright. I will wait for @tamedlion, response and go onto part 2.
@ijesuschrist, I’m still really high… lol. Trying to find the balancing point so that I can see through third eye and normal two eyes at the same time while sober. But yea I felt like I was in a time machine and I was living through everyone’s memories at the exact same time. Then we listened to lateralus by tool and the lights went out as soon as it started, all the power went out, then a bunch of shit just fell on the floor.
@ijesuschrist, Actually, there was another thing that stood out. I began to see nondescript objects in my vision, which seemed to be coming toward me (or vice versa). It looked like the animation in this video beginning at 8:30 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c64Aia4XE1Y
However, I wasn’t able to stay fully awake and aware for more than three songs. It was still interestingly unique, though.
@edwardbernays, Yeah I had the same thing happen, I could clearly see it though, and it got closer once I started thinking about it. Its almost like its the representation of any internal fears you have in your psyche. If you face it it gets more intense, but finally goes away.
@ltwild3, ya man that presence was really trippy for me, so I guess I ignored it. I used to see ghosts/spirts/energies in my old house fairly frequently but this presence was a bit different. I liked your description of ‘internal fears you have in your psyche’. Next time I do this I will try my hardest to face it but thats pretty crazy it started getting closer once you started thinking about it.
