The Beginning of My 3rd Month with Thme

I would blog on the beginning of my 3rd month but I cannot for the life of me remember a damn thing!!!

I know I did the meditation. I KNOW I did. All the signs show it but I CANNOT REMEMBER A THING. WTF!!!

I also have some vague recollection of some astral work but the details are VERY fuzzy. Since I am not accustommed to the whole astral thing, I am also not entirely sure it was astral. It's not like the mundane dream forgetfullness or the feeling like you left the iron on. Its more like the feeling of well, "fuzziness", non-clarity...

Remember to always re-unite your astral body with your body, even if you're not sure if you get astral. Crowley stresses this and suggests that an untended astral body can go wanderin' all on it's lonesome and get into trouble. I have no idea if this is true or not, but it was sufficient to freak me out and make me always re-unite.

I also assume you're keeping a journal? One problem with memory is that you might not be accustomed to remembering information gained in an altered state of consciousness. This is a pretty common problem, and is illustrated by the example of med students taking speed to cram for exams, and not remembering anything sober the next day. The information was stored in an altered state of consciousness, and thus only accessible again in that state of consciousness. One might suggest banishing, dropping into a light trance, and then trying to recall whatever you can again and putting it down to paper. Over time the transition will get easier, and you'll find that you actually switch in and out of various altered states of consciousness in daily life, and thus can make of them at any time needed!

Good reads, and good luck remembering! (My authentication word is "hawris"... which reminds me of houris - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houri )

"I would blog on the beginning of my third month" is perhaps the answer to the question, "Why can't I remember a thing?"

There are some things that are simply too personal to blog about, and the spirits won't allow it.
