MONROE TECHNIQUES FOR ASTRAL PROJECTION

One of the chief barriers people learning to project face is fear.  Many are afraid that they may die, or be harmed in some way as a result of their projection. Once you can counteract this fear you can begin trying to project.  


Step one:

Relax the body. According to Monroe, “the ability to relax is the first prerequisite, perhaps even the first step itself” to having an OBE. (out of body experience) This includes both physical and mental relaxation. Monroe does not suggest a method of attaining this relaxation, although Progressive Muscle relaxation, coupled with deep breathing exercises (inhale 1, exhale 2, inhale 3…. until 50 or 100) are known to work well.


Step two:

Enter the state bordering sleep.  This is known as the hypnagogic state. Once again, Monroe doesn’t recommend any method of doing this.  One way is to hold your forearm up, while keeping your upper arm on the bed, or ground. As you start to fall asleep, your arm will fall, and you will awaken again.  With practice, you can learn to control the Hypnagogic state without using your arm.  Another method is to concentrate on an object.  When other images start to enter your thoughts, you have entered the Hypnagogic state.  Passively watch these images.  This will also help you maintain this state of near-sleep. Monroe calls this Condition A.


Step three:

Deepen this state. Begin to clear your mind.  observe your field of vision through your closed eyes.  Do nothing more for a while. Simply look through your closed eyelids at the blackness in front of you.  After a while, you may notice light patterns.  These are simply neural discharges.  They have no specific effect.  Ignore them.  When they cease, one has entered what Monroe calls Condition B.  From here, one must enter an even deeper state of relaxation which Monroe calls Condition C– a state of such relaxation that you lose all awareness of the body and sensory stimulation.  You are almost in a void in which your only source of stimulation will be your own thoughts.  The ideal state for leaving your body is Condition D.  This is Condition C when it is voluntarily induced from a rested and refreshed condition and is not the effect of normal fatigue.  To achieve Condition D, Monroe suggests that you practice entering it in the morning or after a short nap.


Step Four:

Enter a state of Vibration. This is the most important part of the technique, and also the most vague.  Many projectors have noted these vibrations at the onset of projection.  They can be experienced as a mild tingling, or as is electricity is being shot through the body.  /their cause is a mystery.  It may be the astral body trying to leave the physical one.  For entering the vibrational state, he offers the following directions:

1. Remove all jewelry or other items that might be touching your skin.

2. Darken the room so that no light can be seen through your eyelids, but do not shut out all light.

3. Lie down with your body along a north-south axis, with your head pointed toward magnetic north.

4. Loosen all clothing, but keep covered so that you are slightly warmer than might normally be comfortable.

5. Be sure you are in a location where, and at a time when, there will be absolutely no noise to disturb you.

6. Enter a state of relaxation

7. Give yourself the mental suggestion that you will remember all that occurs during the upcoming session that will be beneficial to your well-being. Repeat this five times.

8. Proceed to breathe through your half-open mouth.

9. As you breath, concentrate on the void in front of you.

10. Select a point a foot away from your forehead, then change your point of mental reference to six feet.

11. Turn the point 90 degrees upward by drawing an imaginary line parallel to your body axis up and above your head.  Focus there and reach out for the vibrations at that point and bring them back into your body.

Even if you don’t know what these vibrations are, you will know when you have achieved contact with them.


Step five:

Learn to control the vibrational state.  Practice controlling them by mentally pushing them into your head, down to your toes, making them surge throughout your entire body, and producing vibrational waves from head to foot.  To produce this wave effect, concentrate of the vibrations and mentally push a wave out of your head and guide it down your body. Practice this until you can induce these waves on command.  Once you have control of the vibrational state, you are ready to leave the body.


Step six:

Begin with a partial separation.  The key here is thought control.  Keep your mind firmly focused on the idea of leaving the body. Do not let it wander. Stray thought might cause you to lose control of the state.

Now, having entered the vibrational state, begin exploring the OBE by releasing a hand or a foot of the “second body”.  Monroe suggests that you extend a limb until it comes in contact with a familiar object, such as a wall near your bed.  Then push it through the object. Return the limb by placing it back into coincidence with the physical one, decrease the vibrational rate, and then terminate the experiment.  Lie quietly until you have fully returned to normal. This exercise will prepare you for full separation.


Step seven:

Dissociate yourself from the body. Monroe suggests two methods for this.  One method is to lift out of the body.  To do this, think about getting lighter and lighter after entering this vibrational state.  Think about how nice it would be to float upward.  Keep this thought in mind at all costs and let no extraneous thoughts interrupt it. An OBE will occur naturally at this point.

Another method is the “Rotation method” or “roll-out” technique.  When you have achieved the vibrational state, try to roll over as if you were turning over in bed.  /do not attempt to roll over physically.  Try to twist your body from the top and virtually roll over into your second body right out of your physical self.  At this point, you will be out of the body but next to it.  Think of floating upward, and you should find yourself floating above the body.  Monroe suggests you begin with the lift-out method, but argues that both are equally efficacious.

Amortentia

Young!Sirius Black x Reader (Maruader’s Era)

Summary: You and Sirius and paired up to do an assignment on the strongest love potion in the world.

Warnings: None :)

A/N: Sorry for the lack of updates! I’ve been super busy and I ran out of ideas for stories. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy!

Requests are open! Send in your ideas!

You look up from your book and scowl at the obnoxiously loud, infamous Marauders as they sit down for Potions. Trying to ignore them, you try to focus on the recipe for a Pepperup potion, but a loud whistle brings you from your thoughts.

You glare at the shaggy, black haired boy with a giant grin and a wink behind you.

Out of all four of the pranksters, you absolutely could not stand Sirius Black. His overwhelming arrogance, loud behavior, and cruel bullying drove you absolutely insane (though, you couldn’t say he wasn’t easy on the eyes…).

You simply turn back around and ignore him as Slughorn walks in to begin the lesson.

“Welcome, everyone! As you all know, the middle of the term is fast approaching. Lucky for you, I’ve decided to assign a partnered group project.”

Before the class can rejoice, Slughorn interrupts. “Hey, now. Before we get excited, I’ve already chosen the partners.”

Slughorn seems to ignore the resonating groan of annoyance from the class. “Each group will be assigned a particularly difficult potion they must brew along with an essay on its ingredients and effects. This will be due in two weeks.”

Grabbing a piece of parchment with several names scribbled on it, Slughorn begins to read off partners.

You begin to feel nervous many names that aren’t yours or Sirius’s pass.

“Y/N L/N and Sirius Black. You will get Amortentia.”

You feel your heart absolutely sink. Not only did you get the laziest, most obnoxious partner, but you also got assigned a love potion–a very strong love potion.

You hesitantly turn around and see Sirius beaming back at you and waving. This was going to be a very, very difficult project.


Potions passes by dreadfully slow after that. You can’t even focus on studying the recipe for a Shrinking Solution. All you can think about is dreadful thoughts about your oh so wonderful partner.

Does he even know what a potion is? you curiously think as you watch him try to decipher aconite from lavender. 

As you watch him, though, you notice how his long, black locks frame his face gently, how when he smiles, his nose crinkles a little….

You snap yourself out of your trance. 

Hell no. I do not like Sirius Black, never.

With that thought, you rip your eyes away from his figure and continue to focus.


“Hey, L/N!” a loud, unfortunately familiar voice calls after you. 

You put a fake smile on. “Yes, Siirus?” You can’t help but breath in his strong scent of cologne.

“So, Amortentia huh?” he wiggles his eyebrows suggestively. 

You frown. “Honestly, I could care less what we have to brew. This potion takes at least a week to brew, so we better get started.”

You can tell he’s about to protest. “And, I am not doing this on my own, Black.”

He groans. “Fine. Tomorrow morning in the dungeons then?”

“Sounds good.”


After following the precise instructions on the recipe and spending hours studying the ingredients and their effects, you and Sirius were almost completely done with your project.

“I think it’s ready”, you call out, noticing the potion turn pearly in color.

“Thank Merlin”, Sirius mutters, heading over to look at the progress. His dark eyes look exhausted, yet, radiant as they take in the sight of the pretty liquid.

You never though spending hours with Sirius Black would be this enjoyable. While annoying at times, he was still amazingly funny and kind, always cheering you up and making you laugh.

But, you reminded yourself, Sirius was a ladies’ man. He would lose interest in you the second your project was turned in.

Your train of thought is interrupted when a strong smell of Sirius’s cologne invades your senses. You look over at him, confused. Did he put more on while you were thinking…?

Then you notice the scent is laced with the smell of a log fire burning and the smell of sweet peppermint and grass.

You let out a tiny gasp. This is what Sirius smells like.

He notices the scent immediately as well, looking over at you with wide eyes. “L/N… What do you smell?”

You flush red immediately and your throat closes up. 

Sirius ignores your lack of answer. “Because…. Because I can smell these flowers, lavender I think, and I swear to Merlin its like the soap you use.”

You can’t breathe, like the air has been punched out of your lungs. Sirius moves closer to you, taking deep lungfuls of air.

“Y/N”, he says and you shiver. He’s never truly said your first name. 

“Y/N, what do you smell?”

You don’t notice how close he is until you feel his warm breath on your face. Softly, you mutter your answer.

“You.”

Your answer seems to snap a cord lose in Sirius and he quickly lunges forward and molds his lips to yours.

He’s surprisingly sweet and soft, and its like you can’t get enough of him. Sirius’s hands dangle in your hair softly as he continues to move his lips against yours gently.

Who knew a boring potions project would end up like this?


Extra Ending~

“I told you it would work!”

“Shut up, you idiot!”

Nearby, James Potter and Remus Lupin watch yours and Sirius’s tender moment unfold.

“Well, I told you that they both had feelings for each other, didn’t I?” James brags, huffing out his chest.

“It was my idea to change the potion they had to brew”, Remus butts in.

They both watch one of their best friend’s happy moment. Remus smiles as he looks at James. “All they needed was a little push.”

I dont know if you're aware, but there's this other similar game yo yours called my candy love and they're releasing a sequel where they got rid of 4 out of 5 of the main love interests for the continuation. I'm a big fan of SE and I was wondering if you were going to do something similar, if you do a sequel :(

Hey Anon, 

I have to admit that I’m surprised to receive this so soon considering this topic is barely 2 days old in the My Candy Love fandom. 

First off, you don’t have to worry about this anytime soon, Sweet Elite is planned to go on for years. So, relax :)

Furthermore, when Sweet Elite does finish, and that will be after at least 50 chapters, then we will make sure that all of you will have a satisfying, well-written ending with your chosen LI. There are no sequels planned for now. The current ending of Sweet Elite, including the epilogue, pretty much wraps up everything about your Scholar’s adventures and relationships.

If we DO end up making a sequel, we won’t make you break up with your LI. We won’t pick and choose the fan-favorite LIs for spin offs. We won’t give massive time gaps between the sequel and the main. That is something I can promise you. 

If you read @chinomiko’s latest post explaining the situation, you’ll find that what she says makes a lot of sense. She works for a business. She has deadlines. She needs to make her bosses happy. It’s normal and I don’t think you should be upset at her for that, she’s probably doing the best she can considering her restrictions. The Sweet Elite Staff does not approve of any kind of harassement towards her and the rest of the team.

The difference between Sweet Elite and My Candy Love however is that the MCL staff works for Beemoov, a company. They don’t have the full control on all operations. By contrast, I’m the owner of the company that owns Sweet Elite. I can basically do whatever I want within the limits of the doable. 

For now, Sweet Elite’s production is going to be much more flexible than what you are used to with other online otome games. It’s up to you to try out Sweet Elite and figure out whether our format will be good for you.

Our demo comes out in less than a week too! So it won’t be too long of a wait :)

Thank you for your interest!

A Banner for Yuzu – Making Of

We put out a call for fan messages to print onto one big banner for Yuzuru when his withdrawal from the NHK Trophy was announced on Nov 10, 2017. In the following five days, we were floored and honored by the outpour of support. A total of 830 messages from all over the world came through to us, and this little banner grew from the initially planned 2x1m, to 2.4x1.2m, and then finally, triple that, to 7.2x1.2m.

The banner was delivered safely to the Cricket Club in Toronto on Dec 5, 2017.

We stand by you, Yuzu. 平昌へ!



Details, details…

ゆづ、もっともっと強く / Yuzu, be stronger and stronger
(Left panel: Chopin, galaxy)

自分らしく / in your own way
(Center panel: SEIMEI)

幸せを。/ attain happiness.
(Right panel: Warm and happy blooms)


The project was on such a large scale, and carried the thoughts of so many of us, there was little time to spare and little space to mess up. Thankfully, with such lovely people in the team and kind help from friends and within the fandom, it all came together in 25 days with little setback.

So much gratitude for the people who helped spread the word. Nymphea who wrote a post for us on her blog, @faviolaxd(Yuzuru Hanyu Latinoamérica) who spread the word to Spanish-speaking fans, the awesome fans who brought the message to weibo, and many more who retweeted, reposted, told their friends… without whom, surely, such an outpour of support would have been impossible!

12.20 coda

Max’s eyes get this predatory gleam in them when he looks down into the Impala. Big guns; they’ve always impressed people. It’s a look Dean recognizes in his own face, the same youth-bright passion for really cool shit. He can’t help smirking a bit as he watches Max lean over the trunk.

“So. Bartender’s number, huh?” Dean says.

Max smirks too, still drinking in the Impala’s arsenal in all her splendor. “Oh yeah. Got a date tonight, in fact. Wouldn’t mind showing him the backseat of this baby,” he purrs.

Dean blinks. “Him?”

Max straightens, frowns at him. “Uh, yeah,” he scoffs. “Problem?”

Dean shakes his head, so fast that the world tips on its side for a minute. “Just making conversation,” he coughs.

Max still looks kind of hesitant, though. He takes a step back from Dean and ducks his head to inspect the rims.

Dean watches the back of his head as he does. Young guy, sister that loves him and sticks with him, a mother he adores and doesn’t have to worry about so much. A hot dude bartender’s number.

Dean swallows past a sudden lump in his throat.

This is everything I could have had.
