Welcome

Allow me to introduce myself.

I am a 35-year-old, 5' 11'', medium build, Caucasian male. I am married, two kids, and I live in a mid-sized home in the suburbs. I have spent the past decade working in IT; that's right, computer stuff! Unless you have actually done IT work for years, it is probably difficult to imagine how unfulfilling, and meaningless it can be,  but hell, as it turns out, that is what my brain is good at and as it also turns out, wives and kids like to eat occasionally. Who knew?  :)

I imagine, like many of you, my Monday through Friday looks like a series of paper dolls; each day, just like the last, but increasingly less interesting. I often catch myself daydreaming of adventure or living for the weekends when I can spend hours playing games with my family or just working in the yard, pulling weeds, pruning my raspberries, while listening to my favorites podcasts.

Now at this point, if you are still coherent,  I can guess what you are thinking:
"Hey! Who gave this guy a blog and shouldn't there be some sort of rule against flaunting a life so monotonous, that watching paint dry is starting to sound like an enticing alternative"?
Well, I have some good news for you, my friend.  This blog is not about my life per se, it is not about the latest trends in the fascinating world of server hardware.  It is not even about pruning raspberries. No, this blog is about my secret obsession. A secret so deep, and so dark, and so secret, that it can only be trusted to the anonymity of the internet.

So, here goes...

My name is Mike and I am a phase-a-holic.

  1. Mike: Thanks for putting this up. I am a retired IT EE type person who has become aware of all this (Monroe Moen Big TOE Etc.) over the last few years. I enjoy your videos. Given the observations of Kurzweil about exponential growth of technology, and the insights of Joshua Cooper Ramo, I have to wonder if a widespread acceptance of our true nature is part of our evolution. We seem to be very blocked by our acceptance of our place in time in this experience. When I read Monroe's comment that: "the earth life experience is addictive" it led to a new understanding. What will happen if a large part of current society understands our true nature and there is a sudden acceptance by the rest of society? I am a lifelong libertarian because of the Non-Aggression Principle.
    Would society adopt that as the right way to live if it suddenly understood our true nature? Thanks again. I look forward to your videos.

  2. Thanks for your comment. I have been facinated by Monroe's encounters with people who are addicted to the life experience. I can honestly say I don't think I would be. I am too excited to see the possibilities of what is next. It will be interesting to see what we evolve into in the years to come.

  4. Hey Mike. I had NO IDEA you were into this stuff! I've projected a few times in my 41 yrs but it's been a long while since. Anyway, I was doing some YouTube searching on AP, LDs, OBEs, etc. and came across a VERY familiar face! LOL

    Hope all is well man. I've subbed to your YT and will be watching your stuff.

    1. Hey man!

      So nuts that someone I actually know from real life found my channel. :)
      I try to keep it quiet because I am well aware that people will think I am crazy. Hell, I would have thought it was crazy until I experienced it myself. Now in case you can't tell, I have become a bit obsessed. I have had over 60 OBEs over the past 3.5 years and still feel like I am missing something because it still relies on luck more than I would like. Anyhow, great to hear from you. Hope life is good at GWF. I am loving life working for Cherry Creek Schools. Very different than the corporate world. More time for stuff like this.

      Good to hear from you.

  5. =) Life at GWF is never the same as it was just 2 years prior. New management... new ideas... same 'ol chaos. I have to admit, I get a little jealous when I see folks able to leave for greener pastures. My turn is coming soon I'm sure. I've been getting an itch to sell my suburb home (Highlands Ranch) and use that money to buy a small lot of land up in the high country to build an earthship and live TRULY free/off grid where I can spend more time doing actual good and meditating/etc. I know, big dreams - but I'll get there.

    I remember my first projection back in my AirForce days. It was a Saturday afternoon and I had been partying by the pool at my apt complex with many friends. I needed a break to try and tame my buzz so I went back to my apt. I fell asleep watching the Jerry Springer show, only I didn't know I fell asleep until I got off the couch to get some water and saw myself sleeping on the couch! WHAT???? I instantly knew I was aware and in control so I did what anyone would do in that situation... I walked right through my apt door and flew around looking at all my friends by the pool. I then decided to try and race some of the traffic on the main street and ran like The Flash up and down the road several times. That's pretty much what got me started. Over the years, I've read and researched only to have the experience 3-4 more times. I tend to lucid dream more than astral project - it's just easier for me.

    I hear ya about keeping low key man. If the folks at work knew everything I was into, who knows what they would think of me! lol

    I only commented here using my real Google account for those reasons. My active Google account ( Mystic Rider ) would probably get me the wrong kind of attention. ;) I subbed with that account as well.

    Peace.

    1. That would be awesome! I would love to have some land to farm and grow an orchard, and spend more time meditating, and what not. One day. :) Cool experience. Thanks for sharing it! Definitely keep in touch from time to time if you would. I wish I knew you were into this stuff back when I was at GWF. Would have been cool to have someone to talk about it all with.

  6. Hello Mike and everyone else.

    I just wanted to thank you for being so open about your experiences. I have been reading and studying this field of metaphysics for nearly 20 years, to be honest its been more academic for me than practical, not through lack of enthusiasm, purely because of heavy work commitments and nowadays family life. I have all of RM's books and also have quite a few others, Wlliam Buhlman, sylvan muldoon, the list goes on.. Itsfunny but if you read similar subjects such as NDE or remote viewing etc, the domains these books reference are all one in the same in my opinion, just a different perspective of the same phases if that makes sense. Personally I haven't attempted to Project or disconnect,however you'd like to term it, in a long time, mostly due to not having the necessary time and space to be consistent with attempts. I do have the Gateway cd's, the closest I came to actual departure of physical was early onset vibration, I lucid dream very easily, its kinda shadowy and heavy, things aren't clear, kinda like being drunk. I stumbled upon your YT channel whilst watching a TM interview with Nancy McM.
    I must say, you come across as probably the most genuine and un-contrived speaker on the subject since Monroe himself in my own opinion. You have a natural aptitude for communication and this shows in your videos. I am going to start giving myself the time to get back into this field of study again now. Lets hope i'm more successful this time!

    Once again thank you for sharing your experiences.

    Have a great day and I look forward to more of your exploits and sharing what little I may have to offer.

    Kev. UK.

    1. Thanks very much. I appreciate your kind words. I too have experienced the dark drunk stumble about feeling. Ha ha. I actually talk about that in a few videos. Welcome. It is always great to meet people with a strong connection to this practice that has turned into such a large part of my life.
