Midlife Crisis: the Gateway to your TRUTH?

Leave a comment Standard

I was talking to a student on Cambly (a platform where I teach english) and the topic of the “Mid-Life Crisis” came up. What I was noticing was the weight of the external expectations hindering his ability to really believe in himself and his dreams. This is something that I have struggled with and see many others have difficulties with. There comes a point in your life where you are going to have to make a decision – do you put all your energy into the expectations (usually from parents, society, etc) and play it safe? Or do you choose your dream and risk disappointing those around you? And trust me, ignoring this is very much a choice – one that will bite you in the ass later in life, wether it is the “mid-life crisis” or the regret felt when confronting death. 

I remember this student asking me well what if you choose your dream and fail? That’s a great question. Because it is a real possibility you could simply just fail and never achieve your dream, right? This is my greatest fear. This fear goes beyond any of my other fears. It goes beyond public speaking and performing. The thought of not achieving major dreams in my life would crush me. 

I’m bit of radical individual though. I don’t do life like most. My dreams are everything to me, they always have been. I’m not the type of person where I give myself only 5 years to achieve my dream then I just move on and do what everyone else wants me to do. I’m the type of guy that will spend my entire life pursuing a dream. If I don’t achieve it then I can make my departure knowing I gave it my all. I would rather that than playing it safe. 

Here is what I think though. If you start believing in yourself, can visualize your dream clearly and are putting the time and energy to grow towards your dream – then I think you have a good shot. The key is patience. We need to give our dream time to manifest. If it takes five years great, but what if it needs ten or fifteen years? Would you be willing to have that level of commitment? 

The mid-life crisis is when the lie or the expectation of who you are and / or what you are supposed to do in life begins to fall apart. The lie can no longer live on. It feels like a fucking nightmare and that is because it is. You are stuck in someone else’s picture, someone else’s energy. The key when dealing with a mid-life crisis is perspective. When a lie is falling apart, that means something new is just around the corner. What is underneath the lie? What is around the corner? What would your new journey look like?

Sure I know, who really wants to start over in life? Especially in older age, right? I have started over many times and yes I am only in my early 30’s, but people have started late in life and went on to achieve great things. If you have not noticed, I am very passionate about dreams. I love hearing about peoples dreams and I love seeing people achieve their dreams. It’s awesome. I want to inspire others to go after their dreams. I believe in the human spirit and believe in dreams. Dreams are important. It is the food for the soul. It is the food for YOU. 

I have so much ground to cover, but traveling is one of my dreams. That is what I am doing right now and before that, it was a small business. I can’t tell you how many times I have failed or fucked up. Too many times to count. The path to your version of success is absolutely messy. It isn’t perfect. All I know at this point is that I will continue to grow toward my other dreams that I have.

Sure, avoiding a mid life crisis would be nice to avoid, but if it happens, perhaps it could be viewed not just as a terrible event in your life, but as a gateway to your TRUTH.

Lucid Dreaming vs Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

Before I get started I just want to make it clear that I am not a seasoned lucid dreamer. With that said this is simply coming from the perspective of a clairvoyant and someone who has only had a few out of body experiences. 

I remember watching two different youtube videos on how you can project from a lucid dream and after hearing the explanation I was little confused because to me it sounds like they are in an out of body state that they are just calling a “lucid dream” and then with intention going back to their physical body while already in an optimal state for projection and then actually project into the astral. Now from what I hear it can be easier to project from a lucid dream than going through sleep paralysis to get to a point of projection. That part makes sense to me because it has not been easy getting through sleep paralysis.

After watching these videos and doing some looking myself (as a clairvoyant) it seems to me that lucid dreaming and astral projection are simply the same expect the how you got there was different. In a lucid dream, you typically go to sleep and are unconscious. Something then happens in the dream and you become lucid and aware. With astral projection you are conscious through the entire experience of leaving your physical body. 

I watched a youtube video recently and the guy was explaining what he thought was the difference between lucid dreams and astral projection. What he said made sense to me. He went on to say how they are all the same, however the main “difference” between them all is how aware you are out of the body. Perhaps it just the level of lucidity is what makes us create different categories. Because when I look it clairvoyantly, they all look the same –  you are out of your physical body and are in the astral. 

People talk about their different experiences when in a lucid dream vs a projection. My theory is that, again, how lucid are you? My other question is, where are you on the astral? How does that affect your “experience?” Do any of these factors cause people to think they are experiencing some other form of a dream experience? I don’t know… Also something to consider is this: are you a point of light out in the astral? Or do you have control over a fully developed astral body? 

What does it mean to be a point of light out in the astral? To me it simply means you the “being”, you the “soul” are out of your physical body with no form, no energetic body. Wait, don’t we all have astral bodies? Well, we all have the ability to generate one, but our experiences both in the body and out of the body can affect our ability to create an astral body and the general form our our dream body. This is why exercise and meditation can be so important. When you exercise you get your energy in movement. If you can move energy throughout the energy system in the physical body, then you can create an astral body much easier. You can also run energy in mediation. You can cycle your own energy throughout your energy system while meditating. I think mediation and exercise directly affect our ability to recall dreams, the overall development of your dream body and can help with having better overall sleep. 

So, to me lucid dreaming and astral projection are the same. I think with both you are just out of your body, but perhaps with a different level of awareness. I also think that if you are just a spec of light vs in control of a dream body will greatly affect the experience. And how developed is your astral body? Certain days might be different. You could be missing an astral leg. Do you have an energy blockage in your actual physical leg? How does affect your dream experience? 

There are so many factors, but I think it is all the same essentially. Keep in mind this is just a theory. I still have a lot of learning to do. Perhaps I will confirm this with having more out of body experiences or perhaps when I have more OBEs I will change my mind.

What are your thoughts?

Telekinesis in Dreams

Leave a comment Standard

For 1.5 months I have been spending more time doing energy work and mediation to improve dream recall, lucid dreaming and astral projection. I have been recording my dreams every morning and it has helped greatly with remembering. I have had a few unique experiences during this time period:

  1. Sleep Paralysis – I have attempted a direct method of astral projection a few times which involves putting your body to sleep and keeping your mind awake. I have not  had success, but I have made progress with it. It is certainly a strange experience feeling yourself loose control.
  2. Returning to Waking Reality – I had an experience where I woke up and instead of moving around, I remained still and immediately though of astral projection. I attempted and failed though.
  3. Vibrational State? – I have attempted numerous times to reach this state, but always failed. Apparently you have this experience right before projecting. The strange thing is that I had a dream in which I started to notice discrepancies in the dream and then I started floating. Once this happened I exited the dream and then I felt like someone was shoving me into my physical body and it moved my attention right into the center of my brain. I immediately felt vibrations and heard a  loud noise in my head. I also saw some light flashing in front of me. It was very brief but this happened twice in one week.
  4. Dreaming about Astral Projection? – I had a dream recently about finally projecting partially out of my body. What I saw was dark space with green lights and it felt like   there was a lot of movement. When I woke up in the morning I remembered this and couldn’t tell if that happened or if it was just a dream. I’m pretty certain it was just a dream.
  5. Telekinesis in Dreams – I’ve had a fascination with telekinesis for a very long time. Last night in my dreams I ended up in my parents house at night. I noticed my reflection in a silver plate. After that I started doing telekinesis by opening and closing a door without touching it. I then proceeded to float or levitate the remainder of the dream.

With all of the experiences I have had and my ability to recall my dreams, in my opinion I am doing pretty well so far. I definitely get frustrated, but usually when I do a few days after something tends to happen…

Do you have lucid dreams or astral projection? Are they the same thing essentially?
