How would i go about doing this?
I have always felt this sort of spirituality surrounding me,
I'd rather sit at home and meditate or paint a picture than go out to a party.
Then sit at home and meditate/paint.
Everyone has a different way to do it, just have to keep trying things until you find something that works for you. For me at least, I find it easier to work energy when I'm listening to metal, lol.
[quote:1a4ozz67]Anyway, there are a few specific things i'd like to know also.
In what ways does my depression affect my energy flow?[/quote:1a4ozz67]
For me, it kind of shuts it down when I'm in my depressive cycle. I can sometimes break through but it's pretty draining on me. Just pay attention to how your energy reacts to those feelings.
[quote:1a4ozz67]Does taking anti-depressants mess with anything of that area?[/quote:1a4ozz67]
Again, it totally depends on you. Some people say that they completely kill your energy and such, but I was on them and never noticed anything different.
[quote:1a4ozz67]Any advice about how to lucid dream or astral travel?[/quote:1a4ozz67]
For lucid dreaming I would recommend keeping a dream journal and also doing reality checks during the day to see if you're dreaming. Astral travel is a bit more difficult for me. The only times I've done it have been in lucid dream states. Once you lucid dream more often, the projection should come naturally from there until you get a feel for it, and there is a definite feeling associated with it, so you'll know when it happens.
