Hi Wendy long time no hear!


Went to Italy two years ago, Venice is romantic . Rome is awsome . but Vinci Terra is faboulus. and my best experience was visiting. Capri, climbing the hill to the castle built by the decrepid emperor Tiberius, who took baths with children satisfying him orally. The view is really awsome, the climb very taxing. Very noteworthy are stops along the way, of the daily railroad pass are Pompeii, and the relics. Again requires hardy stamina and a strong stomach.

Being awake.. at this time of the morning :icon-rolleyes: got a sore back from doing.. nothing in particular, so hoping it wears off later in the morning so that I can get things I need to do done.

A tea, perhaps :-k

Tell us more. Are you leaving your body? Where are you going? Who are you meeting? What are you learning?

(not interested in the spinach melts; just the AP) :wink:

I theorize that if you completely leave your body your body would thus die.

I send my mental energy out, then when things are finished,
the mental energy goes back into my body.

A few months ago Revamp started seeing auras, like physically literally seeing them.
One thing we do often is check on our higher and middle self.
So, that is what im learning and doing.
I try to improve my energy.


OK, thanks. I just wanted to know what you meant by 'astral-planing via meditation'.

If you think you may die when you leave your physical body, then best not to try it. Leaving your body does feel like dying and can be terrifying. I wouldn't suggest it to anyone who isn't psychologically stable or has a weak heart. Just before you detach, it can feel like your heart is about to explode then suddenly... snap... you've consciousness has dislocated... you hear your heart thumping and your frantic breathing underneath you as you lift several inches above your body. You're in another dimension.

I used to make a conscious effort to look at my physical body before going anywhere. I thought that would terrify me but strangely, it gave me comfort knowing the body was still there... still breathing... still alive...

I'd love to try AP again after all those decades. My outlook has changed from when I was a teenager so it would be fantastic to see how that plays out in the subtler worlds. Unfortunately, I don't even have time to post on ILP anymore let alone take on something else so it will have to wait. :(

Eat street food from local vendors. Take a short amount of time snapping pics of tourist shit and then start drinking and walk off away from the tourist areas and find the real people who live there. Go with the flow and don't be afraid that you're going to be victimized. Americans have a tendency to view the rest of the world as a lot more dangerous than it is. If you can make it in Detroit, or New Orleans, or Birmingham, or the Bronx then you can make it anywhere. Do a lot of research before you go and watch YouTube videos of locals doing local shit. Don't visit Europe as if it's a theme park for photo ops of old buildings. Get down in it and learn the smell of the city and see what it's like to really be there. Good luck.

The best traveller guides on the planet ieo.. their Apps and Vids will probably be the most helpful in planning outings and their websites full of info on the cities you are planning to visit.

When you haven't sat down at a drum kit in thirteen years, this is what happens. This shit ain't like riding a bike, yo. You get rusty unless you're schooled and got everything commited to memory... or intermediate and KEEP practicing. I'm neither... but I can get it back if I buy one of these electronic jobs, I think.

When you try to hold a beat and link up with the other guy who, like yourself has no intention of buying anything and pisses all the staff off by playing the instruments, fails to fall in with you... at which point you say 'wtf dude', and forget about trying.
