[quote=“thinktank123, post:12, topic:3461”][quote=“SinisterShadow, post:4, topic:3461”][quote=“The Firestorm, post:1, topic:3461”]I would like a balance of the spirit teaching me how to myself, and automatically helping/forcing me out?
I prefer more angelic spirits than demonic or in neither category at all.
I once woke up to a dark figure in my hallway trying to suck me out of my body but at the time i was too scared and I had no idea what it was.
A spirit with a seal/sigil is preferred.[/quote]
holy crap I could not astral project until I started working with him, he is amazing. I will tell you I woke up almost spinning in mid air. It was terrifying I could barely take it. Will work with him again to get better.[/quote]
Where can I find Bathin’s sigil?[/quote]
I find it very odd that magicians are often unable to astral project at will, let alone not even be able to do it spontaneously from a sleep state. I have zero magick skills, but projection came easy for me–at least up to a certain point. I had success after 8 weeks. I didn’t practice any techniques–I just continually thought about it and told myself every night that I would astral project and then one night I did.
After the initial experience, it is WAY easier to learn how to do a projection from full consciousness because you know what to look for and what to expect. Without having done it, it is almost impossible to accurately explain what it is really like, but once you experience it for yourself, willed projections come much more naturally.
I still have a ton of problems with it though–almost certainly due to an energy deficit, but this is my fault, as I have never done any energy work. The fact that I usually only sleep 3-5 hours a night, and often not at all, probably doesn’t help matters. I can only project from a conscious state occasionally–usually I fail, but I have found that when I am completely determined–when my will to do so is unbreakable–those are the times I always succeed. It is really only when my will is weak that I fail.
Of course, I have many more spontaneous projections than ones from conscious state, where I awake in the perfect state for projection and just roll my way out.
Bro, I think I would go nuts trying for 6 years–probably would have given up by then. Even in my current state, I often find myself wanting a spirit to help me gain more mastery over it. I would think in your case that spirit assistance is certainly warranted. 6 freakin’ years? Screw that–get a spirit to help you.
