Can anyone reccomend an active LJ community or other  serious online discussion forum about past lives which is actually active - researching, examining soul purpose, etc. Open to discussion about both human and non-human lives :D 

The LJ comms which I have found and online forums, all seem to be dead. :(

I watch a lot of horror/thriller movies so this may have sparked many of my dreams. I love lucid dreaming, a place where my imagination goes wild.

I'd like to share this....

This dream is titled: Awoken Thirst

I had a dream that I was a demi-god who woke up from his slumber (yes, I was a male). The smell of human scent woke me up. I was very tall and muscular with long flowing hair, my entire eye was black with no life to them. I had thick eyeliner on like one of those mythical Egyptian gods. I went to a huge shiney rock that showed my reflection. My skin was made of onyx nothing can cut through me, yet it was smooth to the touch and flexible. I looked closer and there were some diamond shards in my eyes, I carefully took them out one by one and tossed it away as if it were nothing. But I'm sure those diamond shards cost kazillions. To me, in the dream, money was nothing because I was immortal. I've experienced everything already and nothing was more meaningful to me than to drain blood from a human. Fresh blood was what I craved for...............

Yesterday and today for the first time I tried to astral project consciously.
Unfortunately both times I got too distracted by outside noises to continue but..

Yesterday I reached a stage where my body was paralyzed, but I could still hear. Should I have been in an even deeper trance state than this? I couldn't move my arms or legs willingly, but that eventually passed when someone came downstairs and I "woke" up.

Also both times I listened to binaural beats the whole time I was trying it, is this bad or not? :/

Thanks.

Can anybody tell me if what I had today was a lucid dream? Because I would like to have them again.

Throughout my whole dream, I saw everything from my point of view, even when it was someon else telling me their story- I saw it as though I were him. Anyway, these are just the possibly lucid parts of my dream. They both involved my crushes.

I passed by one guy I liked and he came up to me and asked me to hang out with him. I said "I want to be with you, but I can see you're busy." I remember I acted in controland confident, knowing I'm making him want me. He asked me to wait for his thing to be over. That's when I said "that's why I love dreams, you can say and do whatever you want to, and whatever you want to happen happens." I know I said this because in my dream my crush actually liked me back, and I said something with so much confidence, like I probably never would say in real life.

I passed by this other guy I liked later on. I think we were flirting and then I just held my hand out. I know I did this with confidence, and I knew he would take my hand. And just like that we were walking and holding hands. I remember thinking- 'I wish relationships could be this simple in real life'.

So if I know I said things like "I love dreams because..." and "I wish this would happen in real life", does this mean I know I was dreaming and controlling m actions in my dream?

Vampires Today: The Truth About Modern Vampirism (Academic Book) [Jun. 6th, 2009|05:15 pm]
Astral and Lucid Dreamers

houseava

If you're interested in the Vampirism & Energy Work Research Study (VEWRS/AVEWRS), sanguinarian and/or psychic vampirism, or the vampire community in general you will want to purchase a copy of this book.  There hasn't been anything quite like this published before... a very different kind of text/approach than that of Ramsland, Guiley, Guinn, and others.

The academic and sociological significance of this work can't be underscored enough.  Laycock offers a sweeping scholarly examination of the vampire community and the process of self-identification as a vampire.  He counters many of the negative stereotypes of the vampire community and posits thought-provoking arguments regarding ontological diversity.  I strongly encourage everyone to obtain a copy of this book and link to it as a resource for vampirism and the vampire community.

Inside Cover: 

Vampires are not just the stuff of folklore and fiction. This book explores the modern world of vampirism in all its variety.

Around the globe, untold numbers of people are identifying as "vampires" and following the ways of "vampirism."  But what does it mean to be a vampire?  Is vampirism a religion? Is it a fantasy? Is it a medical condition?  Based upon extensive interviews with members of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance and others within vampire communities throughout the United States, Vampires Today looks at the many expressions of vampirism.

In the past two decades, modern vampirism has come under increased study, yet most scholarship has portrayed the vampire community as a cultural phenomenon or, at worst, as a religious cult. Having interviewed many vampires across the country, both "lifestylers" and "real," even those "reluctants" who try not to be vampires, Laycock argues that today's vampires are best understood as an identity group and that vampirism has caused a profound change in how individuals choose to define themselves. As vampires come "out of the closet," either as followers of a "religion" or "lifestyle" or as people biologically distinct from other humans, their confrontation with mainstream society will raise questions about the definition of "normal" and what it means to be human.

In this book, readers will meet "lifestyle vampires," who adopt a culture and a gothic ascetic associated with the vampires of art and legend.  They will be introduced to "real" vampires, who feel that they must actually consume blood and/or psychic energy for their well being.  They will hear from members of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance, and they will learn about the Order of the Vampyre, the Ordo Strigoi Vii, and the Temple of the Vampire.

There is no doubt that anyone who reads this book will find the details of real vampire life--including vampire role-playing games, grimoires, "vampyre" balls, vampire houses like House Sahjaza and House Kheperu, the vampire "caste" system, and other details--utterly fascinating.

Additional Notes:  The author holds a Masters of Divinity from Harvard University, a recipient of a grant from the Pluralism Project, and currently enrolled in the Division of Religious and Theological Studies at Boston University where he's working on his PhD.  He has presented on the topic of vampirism at the American Academy of Religion Conference in San Diego where he argued that "vampirism" should not be classified as a new religious movement (NRM) and to faculty at the University of Michigan and other institutional bodies on the sociological and emergent scientific aspects of vampirism.  He will be delivering a paper on Otherkin in August (2009) at the Association for the Sociology of Religion's annual conference in San Francisco, CA.  Laycock is well versed in the structure of the vampire community, has interviewed many individuals from diverse paths, and attended multiple gatherings.

Ephemeral Mists "Moon Ritual" [Feb. 20th, 2009|11:19 pm]
Astral and Lucid Dreamers
yogagirlie


Ephemeral Mists is a new musical project by composer Brett Branning (also the composer for The synthetic dream foundation & Abandoned Toys). "Moon Ritual" is the debut cd, out now on Mythical records.

The sound of the project is best described as downtempo ambient new age music mixed with ethnic world musics in the vein of "Karma" era Delerium, Amethystium, and Dead Can Dance. Its really a an incredibly beautiful creation to be used as yoga music or Reiki music. and I sincerely recommend it to anyone into newage music styles. I'm looking forward to further releases by this project.

hemisync [Dec. 8th, 2008|04:43 am]
Astral and Lucid Dreamers
catlips
i listened to an mp3 from hemisync tonight, one for insomnia/deep sleep and one was for i think lucid dreaming/astral projection.

http://www.hemi-sync.com/store/home.php

i downloaded it to see if it would help me sleep, i don't know if i believe that an mp3 alone can cause you to have lucid dreams or go out of body. anyway it did something weird, not what i wanted though (i just want to get some good quality rest and maybe have some neat dreams)

-kept starting to drift off while listening to it and hearing someone calling my name from the window, felt briefly paralyzed then could move then it would happen again, this happened a few times
-i've had this one happen before and i'm not sure what it is exactly, what do you think: i started to physically roll over in bed but instead felt like i was doing it in total slow-motion and it felt like a lot of the obes i've had, including the slight feeling of adrenaline/panic, then i startled awake and was in the exact same position as before
-was half-asleep and felt the covers being slowly pulled off of me, well at least something was tugging them, i kept muttering "stop" but it was coming out like i had marbles in my mouth and i couldn't move to pull them back, then realized it was paralysis and managed to breathe deep and relax and fall back asleep,
-dreamt that i was floating in the sky and visiting a place where i was talking to actual psychic-types on a phone line. in the dream i called an exboyfriend afterward and he told me they were fairies. felt very real
-really disturbing attached dream about a guy i used to know, comign over late at night and harassing me

there have been times in my life when none of this would be at all out of the ordinary, but i haven't had any odd activity in months.

anyway i woke up a few minutes ago and looked at the clock thinking i'd probably been at this stuff for hours, no it's been about one and a half. i'm a little nervous to fall back asleep and i don't think i'm goign to try this type of mp3 again, but you might be interested, since it definitely did something.

thanks for reading!

Luciferian Psychic Returns to the Air Waves With Joshua P. Warren on 'Speaking of Strange' Radio [Dec. 4th, 2008|10:21 pm]
Astral and Lucid Dreamers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Luciferian Psychic Returns to the Air Waves With Joshua P. Warren on 'Speaking of Strange' Radio


Luciferian Psychic Returns to the Air Waves With Joshua P. Warren on 'Speaking of Strange' Radio

Airs This Saturday Night from 10-11pm ET on AM 570 WWNC

 Asheville, NC, December 6, 2008 10-11p.m. EST -Joshua P. Warren on Speaking of Strange Radio interviews world renowned psychic and remote viewer Aaron C. Hanson who explains a dynamic collective change in human consciousness toward accepting an ultimate realization, a world spiritual socialist government, and the promised one of Persia who shall soon rule and unite the world.

From a Luciferian perspective, the UFO phenomenon will at last be explained as it relates to impending human extinction, existence, exodus, and permanence.

How does the paranormal experience of today relate to the impending world reorganization toward Al Mahdi, Persia's Caliphate, and a one world government?

"There shall be signs and wonders in our skies upon his time of world unification."

-A.C.H., Luciferian psychic, prophet, spiritual projectionist, and remote viewer.

ABOUT Speaking of Strange - Speaking of Strange is a Saturday night radio show hosted by Joshua P. Warren.  It airs locally from Asheville, NC radio station AM570 WWNC every Saturday night from 8-11 pm EST, and worldwide on the web at http://www.wwnc.com/main.html

ABOUT Aaron C. Hanson - Aaron is the psychic and remote viewer who was featured on the In Search Of TV Documentary remake that aired in 2002 in the episode on Psychic Spies .  Aaron demonstrated that he could precisely locate a person at a remote location using only his remote viewing skills. He has been featured on such television shows as "SOS" of TV Asahi in Japan, mainstream radio broadcasts such as Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell, George Noory, and others. He was filmed in a major motion picture "Suspect Zero" where he also served as technical assistant. Since then he has done multiple internet radio broadcasts, and keeps a popular blog on his Myspace page www.myspace.com/hearananda where he occasionally reveals winning lottery numbers for specific areas of the world. His latest lottery success was posted on November 5th, 2008 for the state of Illinois marking his first in a series of postings leading up to the release of his book "Lottery and Survival…" for January 2009. Aaron predicted 666 as this number and in fact, that was the winning number!

Aaron has a long history of paranormal experience and his latest research using modified electronic camera sensors utilizing right angled mirrors and other proprietary devices is being developed to further capture the spiritual essence or that beyond what is experienced by normal states of awareness. Aaron's spiritual projection imagery is in a class outside of anything known today. Many of his images reveal the dead either in passing and/ or from another realm that has yet to be fully understood.

If it involves relevance, mystery, and fantastic controversy, Aaron has the "it" and is as always deep within it all. This fascinating man has been described by many as a strange genius, wildly eccentric, inexhaustibly soulful, and enigmatic.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aaron, is now being booked for interviews. If you are interested in interviewing, Aaron, please contact him by sending an email to propheticlight@gmail.com.

Strange Occurence Last Night [Nov. 4th, 2008|11:03 am]
Astral and Lucid Dreamers

monsterofmud
[mood |calmcalm]
[music |Wolf Parade]

Last night I went to sleep with my headphones in, and soon after I was asleep a short pig-headed being wearing a long white cloak-jacket decorated with rainbow design accents came strolling purposefully into the room towards me, never breaking stride as he jumped onto the foot of the bed and continued to where I lay in the middle. He was wearing headphones himself, and immediately grabbed my MP3 player, demanding that he “share” (take) some of my MP3s. “Free MP3s..I want to share what you have”.

As I started to struggle against his forcefulness, I began to awake. However as I started to come to I was acutely aware of a whirlpool sensation in the center of my body, as if a great rainbow-coloured energy was swirling very strongly from within my stomach, and I could also feel my axis of orientation changing, so that as it felt I had been lying at a 45 degree angle with my feet running through the bed, I now started to be pulled back to a horizontal position matching my body, and I sensed the pig being was caught up in the whirlpool, being sucked inside my center.

After taking a variety of vitamins and drinking plenty of water I’d gone to bed extra early, with a vaporizer running nearby, as I felt very weak and knew I needed more rest than usual. I haven’t been sick in at least six years, but after first waking up this morning feeling great, I now have a throbbing and stinging sensation in my left ear that lets me know I have an earache and need to go to the doctor within the hour. I don’t know if the sickness is related to this astral incident or not, but found the entire thing very mystifying. Has anyone else had a similar experience, or know what the meaning of any of this is? Thanks in advance!
