...I think that these exercises created some sort of energy that attract astral forms. One night I woke up and saw this thick rope strung from my window sill to the door. at the moment i knew what it was. I made the mistake of touching this animal or thing and felt a jolt like electricity. I was definitely awake I immediately felt very sick and had chills all over my body.
"... He struck gently on my chest above the heart.
My body became immovably rooted; breath was drawn out of my lungs as if by some huge magnet. Soul and mind instantly lost their physical bondage, and streamed out like a fluid piercing light from my every pore. The flesh was as though dead, yet in my intense awareness I knew that never before had I been fully alive. My sense of identity was no longer narrowly confined to a body, but embraced the circumambient atoms. People on distant streets seemed to be moving gently over my own remote periphery. The roots of plants and trees appeared through a dim transparency of the soil; I discerned the inward flow of their sap.
The whole vicinity lay bare before me. My ordinary frontal vision was now changed to a vast spherical sight, simultaneously all-perceptive. Through the back of my head I saw men strolling far down Rai Ghat Road, and noticed also a white cow who was leisurely approaching. When she reached the space in front of the open ashram gate, I observed her with my two physical eyes. As she passed by, behind the brick wall, I saw her clearly still.
All objects within my panoramic gaze trembled and vibrated like quick motion pictures. My body, Master's, the pillared courtyard, the furniture and floor, the trees and sunshine, occasionally became violently agitated, until all melted into a luminescent sea; even as sugar crystals, thrown into a glass of water, dissolve after being shaken. The unifying light alternated with materializations of form, the metamorphoses revealing the law of cause and effect in creation.
An oceanic joy broke upon calm endless shores of my soul. The Spirit of God, I realized, is exhaustless Bliss; His body is countless tissues of light. A swelling glory within me began to envelop towns, continents, the earth, solar and stellar systems, tenuous nebulae, and floating universes. The entire cosmos, gently luminous, like a city seen afar at night, glimmered within the infinitude of my being. The sharply etched global outlines faded somewhat at the farthest edges; there I could see a mellow radiance, ever-undiminished. It was indescribably subtle; the planetary pictures were formed of a grosser light.
The divine dispersion of rays poured from an Eternal Source, blazing into galaxies, transfigured with ineffable auras. Again and again I saw the creative beams condense into constellations, then resolve into sheets of transparent flame. By rhythmic reversion, sextillion worlds passed into diaphanous luster; fire became firmament.
I cognized the center of the empyrean as a point of intuitive perception in my heart. Irradiating splendor issued from my nucleus to every part of the universal structure. Blissful amrita, the nectar of immortality, pulsed through me with a quicksilverlike fluidity. The creative voice of God I heard resounding as Aum, the vibration of the Cosmic Motor.
Suddenly the breath returned to my lungs. With a disappointment almost unbearable, I realized that my infinite immensity was lost. Once more I was limited to the humiliating cage of a body, not easily accommodative to the Spirit. Like a prodigal child, I had run away from my macrocosmic home and imprisoned myself in a narrow microcosm.
My guru was standing motionless before me. ..."

I have a question for some who are more experienced with this sort of thing...
When I stopped experimenting with astral projection, I started to sense an evil presence anytime I was alone, especially at night. I had a constant sense of being watched and even felt like I could tell from where in the room I was being watched. Darkness became my enemy and I even hated seeing my own reflection because I felt as though I'd see something behind me. It's like I was surrounded by something ominous.
I finally was able to get past those feelings but it took the better part of a year. I still visualize strange things at times.
The main issue I still have is that I have trouble sleeping on my back. After 20-30 minutes of laying on my back, I feel anxious like something bad is about to happen to me and I have to roll over. If I do manage to fall asleep on my back, I often wake up feeling like I just narrowly missed being attacked by something.
I've experienced sleep paralysis before and I'm familiar with the physiological effects but this seems different.

Meditation is a way to the astral world, I am still shocked to find out that such worlds exist, it just takes practice to transcend, very dangerous also if you ask me.
There are many posts on the side effect of opening such a chanel, when I meditate I do it for getting health benefits, I don't go too deep, anything in excess in this world will make you ill, anything, food, medicine, even vitamins taken in a larger quantity can cause intoxication. and why not this stuff too.
I noticed some of the side effects are.
Lack of sleep.
Unable to function into this world.
....and many other smaller things.

I discovered a technique that allows me to magically look for text on various websites.
This is another Copy & Paste job that has been posted already - word by word - on 24 different other websites.
You Sir, are a moron, it's as simple as that.

I am now skeptical with what happened to this guy, I may try his approach next..I did the meditating and chanting thoh for the three days, I did get a headache, but that was all. I am not able to see auras still, or hear voices or see anything out of the ordinary. I am calling that one a scam. I will try what this kid did and go from there. I did ground myself before I started the chanting, I learned how to properly ground myself back in 2002 when I started looking into most of this stuff.
So I am not sure what else to say, but I feel fine, and I didn't see spiders last night or anything at all. So not sure what to make of all of this!?

i found a very real technique that will increase your spiritual perception by a thousand fold. I won't tell anybody what it is or where I learned it because Some may attract very evil entities and possibly destroy themselves over it.
The level of perception was incredible. But was not worth being bothered by these entities.
