Alright, this will be the last thing I post in here tonight - I have a wiki to get finished up, and some ritual work to get onto later, and I need to get to bed before midnight (4 hours off)
In my evocation last night, after hopelessly trying to communicate with Eriesh’taetohl, I finished it up with a courteous “thank you” and said, “for some reason you’re either not talking to me tonight, or I’m just not hearing you, but either way - would you mind relaying the answers to my questions throughout the day via inspiration, or random articles, or in my dreams?”
And with that I thanked him again and dismissed him.
Well, one of my last questions was, “Is there an exercise, something I’m not aware of -something I’m missing - that will help me advance more in my astral travels?”
And today, I got my answer. So clearly, it was unmistakable. Something I had never considered before. I knew that one of my problems was getting out, and STAYING out. I do get the occasional complete exit wherein I can fly around the world, go find a master and have some exchange, or spy on a friend at their home. However, I have a literal book’s worth of experiences where I got out - maybe a few feet away - and popped right back in. And the final answer - the exercise that can get you out and keep you out - even if you’re only semi-tranced and not in a full blown state of paralysis or gnostic state. And it is an exercise that you can do to train your “muscles” that keeps you out of your body when you want out.
It’s the muscle that counters the snap-back effect - that can literally pull you right out should you choose - at any given moment.
Not only this, but - this is the EXACT same spiritual “muscle” that can hold you in any state or any level of consciousness for any given amount of time. Build it, perfect your control over it, and you’ve got a pretty useful tool at your disposal.
Oh AZAZEL! The answer I’ve been looking for for a LONG time!
Now, at first appearance, this may not seem it to you, but stick with me here, and I’ll explain all.
I have become quite familiar with several of my internal organs. I am a believer that being able to sense any organ, what it’s doing, what it feels like when it’s doing whatever it does, and gaining a minimum amount of conscious control over your internal organs has a plethora of benefits to be had. For some time now, I would concentrate the “seat” of my consciousness into these different organs, and through much struggle, I have found that I can influence some, and actually feel many of them. All it takes is time and practice.
But I missed something - a crucial part to this exercise - a knowledge about how this works and what areas OF the exercise to work on for full control of the transmigration of your energies and ethereal bodies.
This is, not just putting your mind there, but putting your “mind” there, so completely that you aren’t aware of anything else going on inside your body EXCEPT where the seat of your consciousness is … AND THEN … holding it there WITHOUT any flickering back and forth.
This is a fully conscious exercise that you can do that quite literally strengthens your ability to jump, move, exit, merge, anything and anywhere with and by the very center of your consciousness.
I know, I know … this may very well be something that many of you are already aware of, but I am just so excited to have discovered this that I have to share it with even just one person who may not have known this
The exercise is thus - and the skills are in this order to master. If you can’t get the first one, simply work on just that step until you have mastered it.
Concentrate on any area of the body, so long as it is not the “snap-back” area (aka, the head).
Put your all into it. Sense the skin, the tissues, the entire area of whatever you choose. If it has bone, sense the bone. Become so intimately connected with it, that you can sense everything about it.
Translocate your mind there so well that all you are aware of IS that area of your body. This should be so well executed that you literally aren’t even aware of the sensory input of they eyes. You should become that body part - even if you can get it for just a split second, this step has been mastered.
And finally, the part that really tares and strengthens this spiritual muscle - take step 3 to the point to where you can maintain this full transmigration of your consciousness to that part of your body for several minutes without getting “snapped back” into your head.
Now - this just seems like one of those things that maybe I totally missed and everyone else knows. So if it is, again, I apologize. If it’s not, then the hope that this gets into the hands of those who can use it has been fulfilled.
The muscle - the will - the control - the technique … whatever you want to call it, THIS is how to, with full consciousness, (meaning no specific state of “traditional trance” required) strengthen the “anti-snapback mechanism” that so often plagues us with teasing astral projection experiences.
THANK YOU Eriesh’taetohl!!!
I have no doubt this was his work. I asked - and the very next day, I get an indisputable answer while reading some Rawn Clark, (I know, I know - god help me, I’m actually reading that dust cover’s work).
It was an epiphany that took my breath away - literally - it came through with such clarity, that it might have well been the exact explanation I just wrote out.
Well - time to get on with the work-filled night
