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’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.
@snaysler, I think the term astral projection is a bit stupid in itself. This is better suited for the term Astral Projection in literal terms, where what you are talking about is more of an OBE. I would make the claim the term itself is misleading, and better fitting for this experiment…
@ijesuschrist, Duuuuude. I am currently sitting up in my bed having to type this. I could only handle 5 minutes. That was easily the most intense thing I’ve ever experienced.
It started of with me seeing the music in forms, it was waves and then there were shapes, all going to the music. The waves and shapes then startling hurtling toward me forming a tunnel…and then I started to travel through the tunnel and it felt like I left my body. It was such a feeling of joy but I was overwhelmed and had to stop. Is this what was meant to happen. Freaking out a little right now. I’ve never tried anything like this, I only very recently started meditating.
@ijesuschrist, I tried this again whilst not particularly high or tired, and whilst it wasn’t as intense as last time I was still getting…I don’t really know how to describe it…waves of joy I guess. It’s fucking amazing. I just wanted to say thanks. Seriously, you’ve opened me up to a whole new world.
@ijesuschrist, Yeah, I enjoyed it, a lot, until the fear interfered.
And since I’m going to try again I’ll download some Shpongle, maybe the other albums of Infected Mushroom and some of other songs mentioned in this thread. Do you have any other suggestion for the music?
Gotta move to your part 2 ;)
@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!!!
@ijesuschrist, i’m in. I’ve actually listened to quite a bit of infected mushroom high lying on my bed and can’t say that i’ve had astral projections. but since this time that will be my intention i’m sure that will change.
I tried this last night.
I’m in a dorm so I just made myself stay awake until I was pretty tired, about 2 or 3 hours past my usual bedtime. Used my phone to look up the “Converting Vegetarians” full album on youtube and laid down in my bed.
Started zoning out. Felt uneasiness at I think it was the second song cause it was such an unfamiliar noise, but settled down after a few seconds.
Eventually I felt almost like my inner body or whatever you want to call it started coming out and I felt like by face was refracting around. Like, if you looked at a person who was under water and the surface waves messed with their face, mine felt like that. I don’t feel like it came fully out, but I can describe it as almost being pulled by a magnet. Like my inner body was coming out of my face about 1 or 2 inches. It didn’t last very long but it was a cool experience, I only did it for about 20 minutes. Might try it again tonight.
@frustratedpanda, a deprivation tank + music is my dream… I’ve always wanted to do it. Without would be just as interesting, but different.
@emily, That wasn’t my intention, if you;d all like to try it go for it. My true intentions I will wait to share till I get some results.
@zhaetur, Fall asleep while high listening to some very intense trance? I doubt it.
@beardlike, Please do!! Report back your experiences.
@totempole, I don’t know how to share music in a non-complicated way… if you have any idea, you can msg me, or just get a torrent and look them up (OR, for the sake of infected mushroom’s glory – buy them, they are well worth it.)
Guys please, if you;’ve never listened to them before, don’t do it before you do the experiment. The best results are when you do not expect the song’s progression. You can skim through a few to get a feel for whats going to be heard, but don’t ruin it for yourself
@siantastic, Really glad this is going good for you. This is only part 1 of my experiment / project…
Part 2 will hopefully reveal my real intentions with this. Since you are a girl you already addressed an important point I wanted to look into :)
@ijesuschrist, I tried this out last night. I stayed up a couple hours later than usual and smoked two bowls. When I was laying down with my headphones on, but before playing the music, I heard a voice calling me. It was a deep voice calling my name, distant but in an urgent tone and almost angry. My heart was beating very rapidly, and something felt like it was actually trying to leave through my chest. At this point I became very afraid and tried to hold on to reality. When I do this again I’ll try talking to the voice and letting myself escape my body.
I’ve tried lying down in my friends basement (it’s a dark room with a nice 5.1 surroundsound) WITHOUT BEING HIGH and without being tired. I guess I kinda had a slight case of astral projection or at least trip. I were listening to “Heavyweight” which is also found one of the two albums. The “projection” started like a thought or picture in my head and as the song was playing it grew very VERY vivid. Here’s what happened:
I started out by flying through space.
I ended up on a red desert planet, where a group of tanks were raging war against a huge triangle with a mouth.
Then my feeling of dimensions (space) went crazy and it felt like there were several miles from my eyes to my eyelids, as if I were looking out from deeeeep within my own brain.
Then I was hurled into the kingdom of death where a sick and starving woman was sitting on a pile of bodies looking at a ray of light from the top of the pit.
Then everything went black and suddenly, colours started appearing and disappearing.
At last demons were circling around me, laughing at me.
This was a very creepy experience. I felt strange for a couple of days after that. Just after finishing the song, it felt the things I had seen was reality and reality was just something I was imagining. You should make sure you have some guts before trying it while actually being high.
