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.

Astral Projection: Vibrational State

Leave a comment Standard

Well, it happened again! I reached the vibrational state. Again for those that do not know what this is all about, it is a state in which you enter prior to having an out of body experience. I have been practicing dream recall and and astral projection for just over a month now and finally – I am making progress.

I woke up around 3AM this morning and decided to make an attempt at astral projection.  I tried a different sleeping position and it seemed to work because it has was the furthest I ever got with sleep paralysis. I will stop here. I can hear everyone thinking – why the fuck would you want to get into sleep paralysis, that sounds scary. Haha! Well, when you first start to do it, it is a little scary to be honest, but after a while you start to get used to it.

Anyway, this was the furthest I have went with putting my body to sleep. It felt very different this time, like I could really feel my body tightening up and really losing control of my body. It took me a while just to get my breathing down and then I became more calm.  After being in this state for a while, I decided to stop. I didn’t like the position I was in and I didn’t feel like it was progressing so I just stopped. So – I went to sleep.

I started to have a dream where I was at an RV Park with my wife. For some reason I was holding a mail box, like the entire mailbox – pole and box together. I thought it would be smart to put it in the truck and then drive to our spot. When I went around the corner our truck was no longer there. I found this odd. Once that happened as I was trying to walk forward I began floating. Bam! I ended up back in my physical body with a loud sound in my head and then the vibrations hit me. I felt like I was on my way to leaving, but then everything stopped. I was sad, but again still excited because I am making progress.

With finally hitting this stage, I feel better. For a while there I felt like I was never going to get anywhere. Now I imagine it will take some time to get past this vibrational state and finally project!

Astral Projection: My Progress…

Leave a comment Standard

For the past month I have been doing the following; recording my dreams, doing reality checks and practicing astral projection. It has been a rollercoaster ride to say the least. Once I started keeping a dream log my ability to recall dreams started to turn back on. Sure there were a few mornings I could not remember, but for most of the month I had no issues.

I have also been doing reality checks which is simply asking yourself, “am I dreaming?” Normally I just try to put my hand through my other hand to prove to myself that I am not currently dreaming. The idea is that if I do this more often in my waking reality then it may also occur in my dream reality. In my dream reality I should be able to put my hand through my other hand. If that were to happen then I would be able to become lucid in the dream.

My biggest frustration with this process has been attempting astral projection. This is what I am really going after and have been failing to do for an entire month. I have been learning to put my body to sleep, so that I could continue on with the other stages of astral projection. I am able to go into some degree of sleep paralysis, but sometimes I am never sure if fully made it. Learning this at first is scary because once this process hits your chest area and throat it gets weird. At first I felt panic, like maybe I was going to die, but over time I became more comfortable with the process.

Despite getting comfortable it get can very discouraging to attempt astral projection. There is a lot of time and energy that goes into it. There have been many road blocks that I have been facing such as fear, finding a good sleeping position, being in the unknown, feeling the various sensations, etc.

Last night I tried listening to a different youtube video on binaural beats. I have listened to other videos in the past and they seem to work, but never one hundred percent. So, I decided to try this new one and the same thing happened – nothing. So, I went to sleep as usual. I have been getting used to failure so it doesn’t make me as irritated. Anyway, I eventually wake up a few hours later and something strange happened. I was in sleep paralysis to some degree, felt weird sensations in my nose and face and then it felt as if someone was behind me pushing me into the center of my brain. Once that happened a blue outline lit up around me and I started to hear this intense high pitched sound which then was accompanied by these vibrations. It was finally happening. I reached the vibrational stage – the stage where you actually feel yourself vibrating with intensity. The vibrations were growing and I started to see a teal dot light up in front of me. I felt like I was going to blast out of my body at any second… but then it stopped. Nothing happened. I was sad, but also super excited that I finally reached this stage. I thought maybe in the past I had reached it, but now I know this was the first time. To be honest though, years ago I remember living in Chicago and I woke up one night in bed and i felt like i was being electrocuted. I wonder if I was having similar experience.

Anyway, for those that are new to this topic, reaching the vibrational stage is important because you usually experience that right before you project. This is huge for me. I can’t wait to continue improving my dream recall and working on projection.

Something that occurred to me recently was that I truly have the spirit of an adventurer, not only as a traveler, but as an out of body traveler. I know I will breakthrough and achieve this. This is something that I have been wanting to do since 2006. It is finally all coming back to me and I am ready! Until next time…

Psychic School or Cult?

Leave a comment Standard

I know some people have thought it, because I certainly felt the energy over the years. As I have become more comfortable telling people that I went to a psychic school, I’m sure people think it is pretty strange and unusual. And to be honest, it is very different, but I learned more at the psychic school I went to the than the high school I went to.

If you are learning how to see mental image pictures, wave your hands around other people to “heal” them and “read” energy then you must be crazy dude. From an outside perspective, I get it. It’s weird and that is fine, because I am weird, but I love myself. I am okay with my weird.

This blog isn’t to try to prove being psychic is real. I think with anything in life, you have to follow your truth regardless how many people disapprove of it. What I got out of going to a psychic school was turning my abilities back on – such as feeling energy, hearing, seeing and knowing energy. I think people who are not into this could relate to feeling energy or feeling “vibes” but anything beyond that, I seem to lose people.

I focused on clairvoyance, the ability to see yourself, others and the world with clarity. Sounds terrible right? With clairvoyance you can start to see colors, symbols and mental image pictures. When I meditate, I work with colors and mental image pictures quite a lot. Because of clairvoyance I was able to discover so much about myself including who I am and what my dreams are. So there you have it, it must have been a cult… (lol)

I am confident about who I am, what my dreams are and the direction I am heading in my life. Don’t get me wrong, in no way am I perfect or have everything absolutely figured out, but how many people do you know who can answer those questions with certainty?

Being psychic isn’t about guessing the number you are thinking, predicting the future or any of that dumb shit you see on TV. It’s how you perceive energy. It is about your intuition. It is about your creativity. All the things that most traditional schools take a shit on.

Yes I am psychic; I can feel energy, hear energy, see energy and know energy. No… I was not in a cult. I went to a psychic school where I learned about myself in a way that most people will never. I learned to heal myself, respect myself and see my self worth. I am sensitive, creative and very intuitive. I love who I am and I love this crazy ass life I’m living.

Waking Up…

Leave a comment Standard

I’ve been keeping a dream log for almost 2 weeks now. It is helping me remember my dreams more. I have been doing visual meditation including work on my astral body and attempted a few astral projections, but have failed. I am getting better at putting my body to sleep. I felt as though I have had two experiences where I was starting to enter the vibrational stage of astral projection, but can’t seem to make any more progress. I haven’t been doing this too long so I need to remind myself to be patient. Putting your body to sleep can be a task on it’s own.

 It is weird to think that we have been living and traveling in a RV for almost 7 months. We have traveled across the entire country. This would be the second time I have achieved this in my life. The first time was by car though and it only took me 1.5 weeks. Traveling is a dream of mine. I imagine I will do it for a long time. Will it always be in a RV? For exploring the U.S. – yes, but going abroad obviously not. There are many countries Heather and I want to visit, but we are still not sure how we want to go about it. 

I miss Tucson. I loved the energy there; warm weather, mountains, the bike path, the city…. A few days before we left I went for a bike ride and forgot how much I loved to bike. Yuma, AZ is similar to Tucson. The weather is good, there are mountains, but it is definitely not the same. I imagine while we are here we will most likely rent an ATV to ride in the desert, visit San Diego, maybe visit Phoenix, AZ, go hiking, etc. It is nice knowing we are not going to freeze our asses off this winter – haha. I am not a fan of the cold. There is one thing that I am having a conflict with and that is I have always loved the ocean, but… I don’t like humidity. Living in the desert for the first time in my life, I have come to really enjoy the warm and dry climate. I am falling more in love with mountains. This is one aspect of traveling that I love – you continue learning, learning more about the Earth, learning more about yourself. 

What I am, well – remembering, is that I love to dream. I love to dream and then go do it. This journey on the road is exactly that. It is by far not a perfect experience. There are things I did not anticipate or expect, but that is life. But I am starting to remember my passion for sleeping dreams. I have an overwhelming excitement and drive in regards to lucid dreaming and astral projection. I love the process of spiritually waking up. I can’t wait to have my first projection. I will definitely share it once it happens. I also look forward to seeing how this whole process affects my creativity and waking life. To be greatly excited to wake up to a wonderful life and to be excited to fall asleep and dream – this is a continuous goal.

If you could paint your life, what would it look like? If you could paint your sleeping dreams, what would they look like? What colors would you use? That prison you may find yourself in doesn’t have to remain… Could you not just paint a new picture and replace it with the old… and like a seed in the earth, would you experience such growth? Would you smile at the magic you have always had? Would you then begin to wake up? Would you then realize, all that you need, maybe it is already inside of you, waiting to be unleashed…

Learning Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

I started to do a very extensive healing on myself. One that I would only normally do for clients that were long distance. When I did this, experienced a very vivid dream. And that is where it all started… Well, actually it all started back in 2006…

When i started to get into spirituality, the first thing I wanted to do was to astral project. I didn’t have any success, but I did start taking meditation classes at a psychic school. From there I entered a year long clairvoyant training and then went on to do more spiritual trainings. Over the course of my entire life, I have had three lucid dreams. 

  1. I was in my late teens, living at my parents and I fell asleep in my room.  I woke up in my dream and came to realize I could control my dream, so I decided to manifest a Rammstein Concert right in front of me. And…. that is exactly what happened. The dream didn’t last long though.
  2. I was living in Chicago, probably in my early 20’s and fell asleep in my apartment. I woke up in my parents house and it was dark. I noticed my glowing arms and then looked at the wall. I thought to myself, let’s see what happens if I put my hand through the wall. I started to put my hand through the wall and it felt very dense. At that point I got scared and woke up in my bed in Chicago.
  3. The last lucid dream I had happened in Chicago. I was at a friends house sleeping on the floor. I woke up in my dream and it was pitch black all around. I noticed light below me and shifted my attention there. I looked down and started to recognize my two friends sitting in the living room. I then noticed my physical body sleeping on the floor. I got scared and woke up.

Despite having an affinity for dreaming, for many years I went without keeping a dream journal or sometimes not even remembering my dreams. But that is all changing now. I have been keeping a dream journal for at least a week now and have attempted to Astral Project numerous times. I have failed every time, but I am making progress. It is this process of letting go of fear and dropping expectations. Essentially, I get comfortable in bed and consciously start to put my body to sleep while keeping my mind awake. It is the most bizarre experience I’ve had in a long time. What starts to happen is my legs and arms start to lose feeling and go numb. Then this numb feeling climbs up to my chest and that is when my heart rate picks up and I feel like i might die. I tried a few more times and finally moved beyond this. Another weird thing is when your lips, tongue and throat start going numb. This is also a very uncomfortable stage to work through. You have to keep yourself propped up just enough so saliva will just fall down your throat so you don’t have the urge to swallow. Once you try to move, it slows down and even reverses this whole process of putting your body to sleep. 

There are a few stages that follow putting your body to sleep that I have not gotten to yet, but once I do I will write a blog about it. I am really excited about this. I am just going to keep going until I have my first astral projection. I imagine from that point things will get a little easier. I really wonder how succeeding at this will affect me as a creator. I feel as though I could really enhance my creativity. 

Anyway that is what I have been up to lately. My wife and I are leaving Tucson, AZ and will be heading to southern California for the winter. Until next time…

Sixth Layer

Leave a comment Standard

Do you feel your purpose burning in your heart?
Won’t you sing your heart out?
Won’t you speak your mind?
Won’t you release control?
Won’t you ditch perfection and be real?
All the plans in the world won’t compare to the moment
The stars crave the Earth
These dreams are not dead
I have endless words that I’d hope would hit home
I want to move to the energy
I want to destroy limitation
I want to feel the waves rolling inside of me

Do you crave an experience like I do?
Chain after chain, let’s break free
Think back to when you saw the sixth layer
When you saw the dream
When you lit up like a star
And said this is what I shall become
The journey to this picture
The agony and heartache 
Let it fly out like nobody is listening 
Let the whole world hear you scream
The dream inside will come alive
Live it so you can smile when you die
To feel satisfied, to know you were really alive
