Well I have a few problems.
When I attempt to Astral project I first do some deep relaxation/ meditation techniques, and they relax me just fine. I then go through my astral project techniques (from a few different books) and I will get so far as to the point to where it sounds like wind rushing by my ears and I feel "blurred".
The problem is it wont go past that. Ive tried concentrating more/less, deeper relaxing, a relaxation "helper" .
Nothing seems to get me over the hump.
Now I will say that I have inadvertently astral projected twice before while studying self hypnosis.

I have been driving myself crazy with this. I know I have projected before on accident, but I can't project from a trance state to save my life. I feel like I get very close, but my body is too awake. Alternatively, I will feel close and then fall asleep
I will usually start with a chakra meditation, I use a brain wave program for noise (AP program). I feel myself really relax, I see the lights on my eyelids, and I go deeper into falling asleep but not quite. It is at this point I feel vibrations, and I begin to hear very audible words (only single words every few minutes at first). This started as hearing a word and then being woken up a little trying to remember what it was. I couldn't remember them at first. Now I hear them as more directional... like "up"...or "further", then this progressed into hearing "Look up" or "Sink further". When I am at the point of feeling like I could try to "roll over" I can't seem to disconnect the astral body from my physical body. I am stuck. Hmf.
I still think hearing the voice is incredible, and for that I am thankful. I just can't figure how to "go further". The words are not within the brain wave music either, trust me I've listened to it wide awake! I consulted the Astralpedia on here and pinpointed my problem down to tactile imaging as far as I can tell.
I have had many OBE's and a couple of NDE in my life...unfortunately all were in much younger years and I had plenty of ahem...psychedelic assistance.
Edited to add: I also take antidepressants, could this interfere?edit on 5-10-2011 by ValentineWiggin because: What can I say, I'm a perfectionist.

I think that the antidepressants might very well be interfering. I am guessing that they are stimulative to a certain extent? This could be making it harder to relax and let go of your physical body. I am not going to advice coming off your medication obviously.. I am no doctor.
