I want participants for an Astral Projection Expt.
@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.
@edwardbernays, Yeah I had to start over because it got to be too much. I sat there before starting again, and reassured my self that whatever it was, It was a part of me in the end. Then I asked if I should really be that scared of myself, and it was pretty easy to face the second time.
@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.
@adamj, So… did you even listen to the music? Im confused..?
Its ok to read it if you’ve done part 1.
Pary 3 will be my actual intentions here, and are what I don’t want to give out.
@ijesuschrist, I did listen to Infected Mushroom briefly, maybe half a song. I’m not a big fan of electronic music though so I couldn’t let myself really get into it.
@adamj, oh. lol so you just got high and you heard someone talking to you?
Thats pretty heavy!
@ijesuschrist, Haha pretty much. I think I was just trippin myself out in anticipation of astral projection.
That sounds great I am going to give it a try but the weed I usually get is mid at best. Can’t wait – thanks for the info. I’ve wanted to AP all my life.
Please once you’ve done this go on to part 2:
It doesn’t ruin part 1 at all if you want to read it before partaking.
After 1 month (january 1st-ish) I will explain the meaning behind this post – why I actually made this. (Has nothing to do with astral projection).
@ijesuschrist, so that did crazy things to my mind. Put me in some familiar, far out places. I felt like I saw a face that was watching me?
However, I listened to Converting Vegetarians, and stopped and slept before it was finished.
I was very tired and really high. I’m gonna do it again less tired. Some serious creep feelings. I’d like to break through them.
@tamedlion, so you are at least the 3rd person with these “watching” presences.
Can honestly say I’ve NEVER had that, and was not my intention at all, but interesting to see it none the less.
I’m TOTALLY on for it!!
@ijesuschrist, I’m down to do this, I’ve done some very limited Astral Projection, maybe this will build a better and more magnificent experience :) Ill get back to yuh!
Are you looking at a specific genre or something with a certain beat, tempo, pitch- or is the spasmodic techno the general premise?
Im going to join in on this! This would definitely be possible after all my finals are done lol.
@omallen, These 2 albums are specific for the experiment.
To officially be part of the experiment you should do this artist; infected mushroom, however if you want to try others run it by me.
But really, many artists in this scenario will bring about profound experiences. You can try them out – but it won’t be very related to my SPECIFIC purposes of the experiment.
@omallen, no, are you planning on damiana without marijuana?
IF its just damiana for sleep deprivation its fine, but I would expect it to be even less intense than just straight sleep deprivation, due to its relaxing feel – it may conflict with the music :P
I should also mention that I’ve been attempting to lucid dream for several years now without any success. The closest I’ve become is a state of full body paralysis. Of which I’ve attained only once. I’ve tried all sorts of methods; WILD, MILD, etc. etc. but nothing seems to work for me. So obviously when you mention smoking weed and listening to psy-trance as a method, I got pretty excited.
I also have some left over mushrooms.. Perhaps I’ll consume a few grams and try it as an alternative to the weed. Or both :)
Lastly, I have to thank you for introducing me to Infected Mushroom. I downloaded their discography and have been listening to them non-stop since. Pretty epic tunes.
@alanwatts, “And I fell asleep”
LOL how anti-climactic hahaha.
good luck. Mushrooms with infected mushroom would be, well, appropriate. I can honestly say I’ve never done that, and almost scared how far out I’d go doing that heh.
good luck though, let me know whats up.
@ijesuschrist, I don’t mean to be rude, but this is kind of bullshit :p
Getting super stoned and meditating to some chill beats can certainly have you finding yourself in a headspace that is a vast aberration from the norm, however this is certainly not astral projection.
I have astral projected successfully twice in my life after a lot of effort, and I would say from both my research and my personal experience, that astral projection requires sobriety, and lack of dynamic auditory perceptions (ambient noise and certain meditation tracks are fine). The idea is the detach yourself from sensory perception of the external, so that your mind creates its own. Any loud music would keep you completely anchored, making nearly impossible to get to the deep meditative state of consciousness required to leave your body.
That said, I’m definitely going to try this anyway, because as I said above, it sounds like it would still be quite a unique headspace…also looking to try the isolation take one day.
@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, Im going to attempt this tomorrow night, will post results later :)
Ok. Will do this tomorrow if I find the songs. I am wayyyy to tired right now.
