I'm interested in physics and I'm going to be a philosopher when I'm older.
I had my awakening and realized that we are all one and we all go back to the eternal being or "God" when we pass..
but I don't know where to start on my spiritual journey... I've been trying to astral project but I never get past the vibration stage... I also smoke marijuana., will this help any..?
Like with meditation or something.
I've been experimenting with psychedelics and learning more about myself and the material world. as in like atoms and things the eye can't see...
I'm sorry if I didn't post this in the right spot. I just really need a starting path or an idea or something..
What do I need to do to align my chakras..? How can I be better at projection..? How can I make my trips better and learn more..?Any help is appreciated.
From what I know any mind altering factors that allow one to 'escape' reality will actually knock the soul down the spiritual path. The reason being that we were given this reality to 'work' with ... to go through stuff to train ourselves and to ascent on levels of higher and higher unconditional love and compassion.
When we 'chose' to escape reality we chose the 'easy' path which leads nowhere.
When we chose to work with what life deals us with then every small thing that we conquer, every little thing that we get ahead with - helps our souls.
About where to start - we are so fortunate to be living in a wonderful and amazing era where there are so many opportunities for one's spiritual ascent.
However if you are like myself and many in this Forum including Adrian
you may like to study everything you get your hands on, experience a lot of forms and paths... yet follow nothing in terms of organized institution then you chose the path of freedom and own responsibility.
I would not even start to list all I have been through
and from each I took what my soul needed.
However there are a few major highlights
- Books by Emmet Fox - he is no longer in this plane yet the light he left behind still shines brightly - he was my first master so to speak http://emmetfox.net/
- as having a strong Christian background it helped me integrate a lot of what I already had
- then Adrian's
plethora of books - so many of them not sure even I read them all
- the Kybalion
- Alchemy - check the author Dennis William Hauck
- Kabbalah - this particular site which is the original Kabbalah http://www.kabbalah.info/
- so called new age especially Gregg Braden, Wayne Dyer, Abraham (Esther and Jerry Hicks), see the movie What The Bleep - if you like physics you will find in there a lot of authors - our friend Explorer is actually going to start the Maharishi University
- A Course in Miracles - http://acim.org/Lessons/index.html
- Tao Te Ching, Hua Hu Ching
... just a few to start - and this would mean your main daily focus to be reading/study/ introspection/ realizations / reflections / through own life - because at the end of the day this is what spiritual evolution is: KNOWING YOURSELF - when you do that you start to see the fabric of the Universe.
If you read Adrian's book and newsletters also you will learn that Astral Projection and all of that will 'help' with you realizing there is something greater than this physical world, however will never bring you the desired evolution. That can only be achieved through own work and relentless effort and above all LOVE for the spirit for understanding God, Source.
In Kabbalah they say there are 2 paths - the path of suffering or the path of Kabbalah (Kabbalah means to receive light - so every time you study with all your heart spiritual matters you receive light and your consciousness expands
This Forum is a treasure of shared knowledge - all you need to do is a search. Also Adrian's website has tons of articles. Have you read his book?
i ve actually been going through a similar realization as you. As for astral proj/OBE you should check out Adrians brainwave entrainment tracks which do help with this. Any kind of drug only makes it more difficult to be in control of ones consciousness and should be avoided as much as possible. You should also get his book which i believe gives methods to your inqueries.
Love peace light!
Yes dear friend those are valuable tools - any chakra stimulating music and sounds helps.
All love and blessings
