Instant astral projection through narrative writing bilocation

Some more tips to try-- 

just like when in a lucid sleeping dream we rub our hands to stabilise the dream.  Try rubbing your physical hands, or even your daydream hands, (or even both 😋) this should increase the visuals and ground you. ( ok scratch that. You rub the hands together of the dream body you wish to be grounded in. But it wouldn't be a bad experiment to go back and forth between the two... for science!  Or try rubbing your physical hands first to remember the feeling, and then do it with the daydream hands for a stronger grounding.)

Then, if you try the scribbling during the trip, try this :   have your dream self yell out. Maybe something like "clarity now!" if the dream is fading.  (same thing we do in sleeping lucid dream).  But here's the trick, scribble harder and wildly as you are yelling in the dream. This will intensify the intentions and create a feedback loop between the dreamer and dream. For more ideas, look up what to yell out in lucid dreams. (i swear it's a thing 😋)

@Shunyata well I still don't understand the concept of past or future lives besides the dream of them... so sure!! So for example, send yourself through a time tunnel with the intention of perceiving a past life. If anything doesn't come up, like a location for you to visit, then send yourself to a museum filled with artifacts of a previous life. Walk around and observe what you find. 

At the end of the day, whether or not the 'past life regression' is successful or accurate, it's fun and you will still receive lots of inner guidance, which I assume is what you are seeking 😊

Thank you for all the tips!

I'll look at a video or two tomorrow morning and then try it out again...I hadn't thought of rubbing my hands together as a stabilizing method, so I think that will help. I'll keep in mind the automatic scribbly writing method and With what I wrote earlier, the marble in my hand came by accident and just happened to help me stabilize.

What you said about keeping a mind palace, that sounds very interesting, I've never tried creating one but I do want to re visit some of my more common dream locations. (and your treehouse mind palace place, sounds very cool btw (: ) I think that visualizing it while awake would increase the chances of visiting it during sleep, so this is definitely something worthwhile to tap into I think.  Last night one tiny aspect of the daydream visualization I wrote down earlier came up into my dream, the little white butterfly, the butterfly was a faerie I was trying to save in my dream. 

I was thinking today, why is it so easy for me to imagine things effortlessly while reading a book? Because with reading, I can totally imagine with my eyes open at the same time...and I think it's because I don't need to cram in every little visual detail while reading, I think. Sure the visualization will be a lot more vivid and less abstract than reading a story, but with reading the experience feels very grounded, and it can feel real even though it doesn't look real. 

Theres a childhood favorite book of mine that I've read dozens of times, where I have all the corridors and the rooms of the house memorized in my head...and when I re-read that book this year, I realized that the book hardly described the house at all. So I think it's interesting, that after so many times reading it, that the shapes of the house really did solidify in my head.

@seeking_brilliance I'd be eager to hear whether coming up with your best ideas is an active process for you; much more about talking it out, drawing out mind maps... Or whether you're like me and they miraculously arise from within. It feels like having a sudden epiphany... And I find it closely related to giving myself to the Universe. Ime, the best ideas appear in surrender. Visualization gets so much more vivid in surrender. Surrender is trust, surrender is king.

The streets were white the other day, and I surrendered myself to the walk, the snowfall. Pure magic I tell ya. A miraculous vision whispered to me from within, and it slashed my throat, and it pierced my heart, and I have no option but to humbly take credit for it in JBE2.

I visited there last night. Felt like returning home. I hung out for a while in my hanging meditation pod (hammock). Putting down the pen, I closed my eyes and joined bodies with the dream body, and I was there in the hammock with my library on the left and large windows and balcony on my right. It was cool. 

I'm very happy you had the white butterfly appear in a vivid dream. I call that dream incubation, and is the primary function of the videos I made. (the secondary function of them is that they are fully immersive Astral vacations)

Try a video or vladimírs book! In my videos, as long as you can understand and accept the computer voice I had to use, everything is there for you to relax and journey to another world.  We actually go to the balcony of my tree house at the end of "lucid flying"

So for me I guess it's both. I'm definitely a mental masturbater. I'll admit that, but I also feel like I live a full and enriched life so I don't demonise it. I do like to talk things out, but in doing so, it's like a spring of insights bubbles up within. The talking and obsessive words kind of coax that spring out of the depths.   I keep telling myself that one day I'll buckle down and sit in stillness and then I'll see which quality of insights arise then. 

I do agree about surrender. For example,  the lucid daydreams I'm presenting get so much more fun and interesting when I surrender to the story and let it flow through. I guess I also trained myself to switch between active writing and surrender writing, on demand. I don't know if i( as Justin) will ever be the type that surrenders to silence, it remains to be dreamed 😂.   Although last night I did go to my mind palace, hopped up into my meditation hammock, and attempted to meditate there, it was nice.  I think I may pursue that angle for a while.

One good thing about the synthetic voice is that it keeps you hanging on the words because you have to actively listen to her to catch everything. But I promise I sought out the best free, most natural sounding synthetic voice and spent long hours manipulating it into a pleasantly customised voice.  Plus, I prefer female voices for this kind of thing, and I'm male. Also I don't like my voice, it's not soothing and I have a strong southern USA accent.

@Myioko @Hulia @abrakamowse Ok here's what I feel is a well rounded example of what we can do with this and were we can take it.

TDLR: In this session, I start with the grounding technique and then go and visit my mind palace. While in the mind palace I practice psychic reading and channel a message for Actualized.org... which, ta-da, happens to ALSO apply to myself. How convenient.¬¬  @SirVladimir stirred up an inquiry for myself that I've been chewing on, so I ask Sam about it.  The writing styles varies from guided visualization to journaling to just whatever,  and some literature dialogue thrown in for good measure.  I also interact more with the physical body, showcasing what I mean by bilocation.  
***************************************************


Reclining in bed, I lift up and through the ceiling, and am now over the cul-de-sac. I can see the houses and 90 acre park beyond. I fly towards it and keep flying until I see Lake Alfred. There it is, so I decide to dive bomb straight down towards it, faster and faster like a bullet-- and it draws ever closer. Splash, I break the surface and head straight down through the murky waters, down, down, until I'm in Earth, and I shoot further all the way to the center of Earth's crust. I arrive in my grounding house. (looks like a generic hobbit hole, pale yellow walls) I forgot my silver cord, so I send an astral hand up to get it. Here in the bed I see the hand, like "Thing" from Adam's family. It extracts the cord from my navel and disappears with it. The cord hangs over me and straight down through the floor.

     Now back in my grounding house, I walk down the corridor to the scarlet door on the end, with the words 'grounding room' on the door. Inside is a cavernous room with ambient lighting around the stalagmites. In the center of the room is the OM tuning fork, which I know to be rooted in the center of the Earth. I wrap my cord around the two prongs and tie it off.

    For the remainder of this dream, it will absorb negative energies and patterns, and send them down into the Mother Earth for purification. I can feel it pulling stuck energy from my body.  I am fully grounded into heart center.

    So now I  crouch down and then shoot off, straight up through the domed ceiling and the tunnel which leads straight back up to Sky. Before  I know it, I'm already above the houses. I want to visit the tree loft. I have been thinking about replanting the giant tree into the 90 acre park, but haven't picked a location yet. So instead, I create a portal in the sky and fly through it. It's pitch black on the other side, and after flying through for a little while, it was like flying through nothing. If I was flying at all. For all I knew I could be frozen there in superman position.

    So I yelled out-- SEND ME TO THE TREE LOFT!  And suddenly a skyline appears. I fly towards it and now I can see the giant tree growing nearer and nearer. Its like a big oak or something. There's a crystal pendant  hanging around my neck that I bought years ago, and I put it back on today. I decided I wanted to store Sam and the tree loft in it, so I'll do a ritual soon to complete that. I mean, of course it doesn’t really mean anything but the ritual will put a spell on my mind that whenever I touch the crystal, I'll instantly be more connected to Sam and the mind palace. Whatever works right? ;)

I land upon the balcony facing the huge windows. There's a wooden thud as I land and I can feel the pressure on my soles. I walk to the door on the left and enter.

    The loft is before me. It's carved out of the top of the giant trunk. On the other side, the entire back wall is the library, and I walk across the loft to the rows of bookshelves on the other side. The hanging mediation pod is in the center of the room, and it swings when I bump my elbow against it. There is a large fireplace in on the back wall, surrounded by rows of bookshelves, with a gentle fire.
     "I choose the book titled "MESSAGES FOR ACTUALIZED.ORG MEMBERS""  I'll go to the pod and practice. I walk to it and climb in. It glows with a soft blue ambient light, popping up somewhere from under the cushion. The book pages glow so I can easily read. I flip to the first page. Printed as the title, is says again "Messages for Actualized.org"

Here is what I read: (went into my version of automatic writing, or in other words I listen for a string of words, not knowing what the next word will be and just write them as the come. This is how I do much of channeling)

It will take two years to formulate a gestation of periods. In other words, Listen! Stop arguing and listen!

(Me) we don't listen enough.

The book: it's not a doing, it’s a love letting. Receiving.

I'm laying in bed here thinking this sounds like Sam. While I was, I saw him pop up out of the book in my hands in the pod. Going back to the pod, I rub my dream hands together. I take the book. Sam is inside the book, like an illustration.

(Me) Sam, why do you think we don't listen enough? (I ask this twice more, and get an answer I didn’t like, and it didn't feel like Sam was connecting. ) I ask if he wants out of the book. "Ok yes of course Sam can come out and into the pod with me. Hey sam."

    "Hey, thanks. Finally, yeesh."

     "Sorry I was just trying something creative. I should have asked. Ok now, Sam, why don't I listen?"

     "You just need to find the arrow." (this is what I kept hearing when I didn't like the answer, because its something that commonly comes up when I surrender to receiving the words.)

     "Ok, what does that mean, you keep saying it."

     "It means don't wait for the answer, seek it. How hard is it to teach yourself to listen? Yeesh."

     "Sam, I notice you are being silly. Yeah yeah. So how about this? I'll turn out the light and we'll sit in the pod together, and I'll listen. I'll listen for whatever. For you. For me. For the wind, whatever."

(so I do this)

(insight ahead!) 

.....Ok, laying there, many times I realized I wasn't listening. I was on one train of though after another, and I had to keep reminding myself to be in the pod with Sam and just listen. Then I realized… listening isn't something I do… listening is all I'm doing. I'm only ever listening. Its just what I'm listening to is the problem. If I listen to thoughts, then I'm on another train. If I listen to silence, (or perhaps music) then the train passes by. (or there's not even a train)

Ok, going back in…

(...) 

....Well I still wasn't great at listening to silence but I did hear the following phrases, as if coming from someone else--

"we stole bicycles"

"Chris is a dog"

Also, Sam and I laid side by side in the Huckleberry position, touching elbows to feed each other energy. He said something--oh-- I asked what is surrender, and he said its when you dance in the moment. Then when I repeated that to myself to remember, he interjected at the end with "and sing". And I guess its true… that is more my flavor of surrender. Not that I'd dance in public of course! (i did  last year at a party and it was very liberating) 

Ok, I’m ready to end the dream, and ask Sam to come up and hang out with me for a while.  He says he'll be around and fades away. I climb out of the pod, and look around the loft once more. Then I make a portal and zip through it. I am now back in one body, and when I'm finished writing this I'll rub my hands together to ground myself in this place.  Goodnight.

@seeking_brilliance I tried your fairy kingdom with the mushrooms houses. I liked the story! It´s very easy to imagine everything (especially a small house with a round table in the living room and the flowers on it - I know the scenery!). The flow is perfect. But!

I have my problems with the king! The first thing I imagined was a white horse with the wings. But then it didn´t match to what the voice told me about the king. I tried my best to imagine a human being as a king and the only one I could imagine is this moron. So clearly as if I´ve painted him myself.

My collective ukrainian subconsciousness refuses to provide me with a positive image of a king. The kings have never been our heros, rather our enemies. I don´t want to ask him for anything. I don´t even want to go into his palast. Everything resists in me.

@Hulia thanks, I'm glad you liked it! The white horse with wings (pegasus) is what's flying animated across the constellations on his robes. To me the king looks alot like the old forest versions of Santa Claus. 

He's a very friendly king, I promise. Just wants what's best for you 😊 and of course he's not a human king, he's a fairy king. They're alot nicer.

Then he shouldn´t be in a palace but in a forest. Forest is ok. A forest covered with snow is more than ok. It´s extraordinary beautiful.

@SirVladimir

Something manifested on Facebook today that (imo) perfectly sums up what you said. (even though it doesn't use the word surrender)  My comments to add is that I am not peaceful, I am peace. I do not surrender, I am surrender. That's really all I can do, but the obstacles come from what I'm surrendering to. Many many times I'm surrendering to thought. To the speeding trains demanding attention. And then, sometimes.... 

******************

 

From a Bowl of Saki, January 12, by Hazrat Inayat Khan 


"... It is useless to discuss the peace of the world. What is necessary just now is to create peace in ourselves that we, ourselves, become examples of love, harmony and peace. That is the only way of saving the world and ourselves.

Peace is independently felt within oneself. It is not dependent upon the outer sensation. It is something that belongs to one, something that is one's own self. ... Peace is not a knowledge, peace is not a power, peace is not a happiness, but peace is all these. And besides, peace is productive of happiness. 

Peace inspires one with knowledge of the seen and unseen, and in peace is to be found the divine Presence. It is not the excited one who conquers in this continual battle of life. It is the peaceful one who tolerates all, who forgives all, who understands all, who assimilates all things. The one who lacks peace, with all his possessions, the property of this earth or quality of mind, is poor even with both. He has not got that wealth which may be called divine and without which man's life is useless. For true life is in peace, a life which will not be robbed by death.

The secret of mysticism, the mystery of philosophy, all is to be attained after the attainment of peace. You cannot refuse to recognize the divine in a person who is a person of peace. It is not the talkative, it is not the argumentative one, who proves to be wise. He may have intellect, worldly wisdom, and yet may not have pure intelligence, which is real wisdom. 

True wisdom is to be found in the peaceful, for peacefulness is the sign of wisdom. It is the peaceful one who is observant. It is peace that gives him the power to observe keenly. It is the peaceful one, therefore, who can conceive, for peace helps him to conceive. It is the peaceful who can contemplate; one who has no peace cannot contemplate properly. Therefore, all things pertaining to spiritual progress in life depend upon peace.

And now the question is what makes one lack peace? The answer is, love of sensation. A person who is always seeking to experience life in movement, in activity, in whatever form, wants more and more of that experience. In the end he becomes dependent upon the life which is outside, and so he loses in the end his peace, the peace which is his real self. 

When a person says about someone, 'That person has lost his soul,' the soul is not lost; the soul has lost its peace. Absorption in the outer life, every moment of the day and night, thinking and worrying and working and fighting, struggling along, in the end robs one of one's soul. Even if one gains as the price of that fighting something which is outside oneself, someone who is a greater fighter still will snatch it from our grasp one day.

... the first thing is to seek the kingdom of God within ourselves, ... there is our peace. As soon as we have found that, we have found our support, we have found our self. And in spite of all the activity and movement on the surface, we shall be able to keep that peace undisturbed if only we hold it fast by becoming conscious of it.~ Inayat Kahn
