Anyone believe in this? Recently I've been reading about it and I gotta say I'm sold. I've been practicing, but no luck except weird body feelings. They say it can take awhile. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it means to leave your physical body and travel the astral plane as a short definition. Hendrix used to practice it and he really believed it worked so I've been trying.

This has nothing to do with drugs, thank you. As a matter of fact, being on drugs totally ruins the whole thing.

Wait...

Astral plane?
Projection
Body?
Travel?

There's a few things here I'm not familiar with.

i disagree, some drugs, such as salvia and DMT have led me to the most intense of astral projections

I've had OBE's on drugs before, but I suck at meditation type stuff so I doubt I could do it. I do believe it's real in the sense that our minds could create that experience and thus make it a reality for the individual, the human mind is so amazing , I never underestimate its capabilities. However, I don't think you actually leave your body physically or anything, that's absurd.
Don't need a gun to blow your mind.

i think if you can convince yourself well enough -and you've been dropping acid- then yeah sure you can have an out of body experice (which is what we're talking about right?) I don't think you can REALLY experience a life outside of your own body though....

Uhm, because in all the books I've read and on websites, the guys who say they've done it say drugs will ruin it. I've had OBE on drugs, but not the kind you can get with this.

I heard that if you take rat poison while playing in traffic blindfolded really helps achieving astral projection. And by astral projection I mean increasing the world's average IQ points.

Perhaps they've just ruined their brains so much through drug use that it comes naturally?

Yea, you can't count on having a good conversation here. Always have to have someone coming in with ignorant remarks. Astral Projection has nothing to do with drugs, its more of a religious thing. But I guess you guys wouldn't understand. Most of Hendrix's songs, by the way, came from his OBEs.

"Definitions of ignorant on the Web:

* uneducated in general; lacking knowledge or sophistication; "an ignorant man""

Good luck with your astral projection, you don't even know basic english.

Fixed that for you.

Basically, anything with 'crystal' in the title should be avoided.

I mean seriously, on that site it's talking about subtle bodies, chakras, auras and Theosophy.

If that didn't set your bull**** detectors off, perhaps this excerpt from that site will:

"Each "body" has its own aura and set of chakras, and corresponds to a particular plane of existence, as the individualisation so to speak of that plane. Thus the astral body is made up of the substance or matter of the astral plane, just as the physical body is made up of the elements of the physical plane, and so on with all the bodies."


wut, seriously, just wut.


EDIT:

More ****e:

"In truth this energy field not only goes around you, but moves within your body as well. It is not just the outside of your body that is made of electromagnetic energies, every part of your and everything your experience in third dimension.

Auras vibrate to different color, sound and light frequencies. The color spectrum varies with one's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states.

...

When people have done healing work together - or shared any physical contact - they will share a common auric field for a period of time as they have just merged their electromagnetic energies.

...

Auras can be seen physically, or sensed psychically, or both.

To practice seeing auras - have the subject stand in front of a white background and look to the side of their body - either side is fine.

Daylight is often the best light as the sun's rays are full spectrum.

If you watch the person for a minute, you will see their electromagnetic energies as sort of wavy lines of energies. This looks a lot like the energy you see when you are watching an airplane taking off in a movie. "

My brother's friend's uncle tried astral projection while on dmt and apparently pushed a satellite while flying through space and the next morning he saw on the news that a satellite was mysteriously pushed out of orbit, now all my brother's friends are starting to believe in this stuff and it's creeping me out.

So yes, using drugs make it a lot easier to visualize it, and saying that it's a religious thing doesn't help you either, it's a common held opinion in the neurology community that people that truly believe in religion do so because they're a few wires short of a full circuit and that site you posted is just a great example of a bunch of these people getting together and pooling their stupidity.

Quote by captain Trips
I can do it but I think it's just lucid dreaming


I was gonna say, I'm pretty sure this is like lucid daydreaming, I don't think that two people could meet each other on the astral plane and communicate, to me it's just not feasible.
#32
Astral projection = lucid dreaming where you're convinced you're awake rather than being aware that you're dreaming.

Take a look at the phenomena attributed to both, there's a lot of similarities. Essentially, astral projection is lucid dreaming for people who tend to believe in stupid ****.

Quote by Bassman86
What the hell is the Astral Projection?


It's a group and a philosophy aimed at and practiced by retards. I'd explain it to you but it'll be like lying down on the traintracks and waiting for a train full of fucking stupid to hit you at full speed.

Burden of proof my friend.

Regardless they are claiming that people give off visible electromagnetic auras. Well yes, people give of thermal energy. No auras there, just simply hot bodies radiating. This radiation doesn't change with physical, emotional or mental states, only temperature.

Claim disproved.

It's absolute BS, unsupported bu evidence and contradicted by our current understanding of everything.

I have tried a few times. I usually just get the feeling of slowly spreading out like when you pour syrup on a pancake then I start feeling like I'm floating 1-2 feet above my (physical) body. I few days ago I did get a few random images flash by (mountains, waterfall, my living room, ect...) I have never been able to get farther than that. The images were sort of like in a dream, but still distinctly different. It's not really something you can describe. I don't believe that my "astral body" is actually traveling away from my "physical body," but it does feel really cool and I am extremely relaxed after doing it so I think it's worth it.
