ok, I have decided to put myself out there a little bit, in hopes that someone can learn from this. Or that someone who is more advanced can teach people with similar problems how to hone in on the techniques for better magick work. I really do not intend for this to be a long blog. So I apologize before hand.
My intent: to astral project on command and learn how to set the dials for a charted pathworking system. Or build an astral vechicular transportation if you will.
I start out with a yoga routine. I memorized the positions in a book. Every exercise from start to finish is little over an hour. (dont ask what book, I memorized the positions and passed to book on)
I usually do about thirty minutes to an hour worth of these exercises daily. After a few asanas my inner chatter stops as the strain from my body keeps me focused on my breath. In some asanas it has become that please stop this isnt comfortable feeling, to ignoring that and eventually finding comfort in the position.
Once in done with yoga I find a comfortable asana to start energy work. Most of this is breathing exercises mixed with robert bruce techniques from Astral Dynamics. In the height of that, I do a tetrahedron exercise that has replaced the middle pillar ritual.
From there Im pretty tranced out, my thoughts do not chatter, I am aware. Trance states for me is pretty euphoric. I get that feeling like the onset of taking E or a drop of acid.
Then I try to get out! By any means necessary. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. Here is where I do the rope trick, sense of falling, staring at mandalas,the usual. Since I have been on this forum, I started walking around my house while in trance. I enjoy the work very much, I just want to progress further. I have done this general outline almost everyday for a year. Something seems wrong, like Im not maximizing on the benefits of potential results.
At this point I can successfully open my temple and do whatever work I have laid out with decent success. Its not like where I want it. For instance my results seem to be kinda low grade.
In other words: I just want to know how to project out of my body on command, go where I want. And be able to physically manifest an entity everytime during solo work.
There are quite a lot of ideas that interest me that I may post as different topics once I can get a good foundation of results. For example time travel, how cool would it be to have the ability to teach yourself how to go see your favorite band that no longer tours? Or to be able to find an astral book that is so exotic from anything you have ever seen. I hear about people doing this, but I am pretty close to finding out for myself how close I can get
anyone have any experience in this that they would care to share? Techniques, examples, cool stories?
