Response to dreamwalker's question about stopping abductions. It won't fit as a comment.
I can explain what I do as it's actually quite simple, but rather than some technique to be shared it is just a combination of abilities I've gained over the years.
I've noticed that before an abduction is about to happen I get "someone" peering into my mind or paying attention to me with focus. I sense this in the astral. I simply close that connection between us willfully. It takes being able to have astral awareness while sleeping which comes with meditation and astral travel experience - which is probably just as stressful as an abduction (with some of the influences you need to deal with there)! ;)
One time I was sleeping on the couch as my wife had a bad cold and cough. I had an abduction attempt that night and it got pretty far before I stopped it. I wrote it out so I'll just copy that here:
*** copied from previously posted information - written by me and about my own experience ***
Background: I've been abducted several times in my life; the first time at age 10, most recently at age 27 (I'm 43 now). There were at least 3 times between those two abductions which I only remember small bits of, and numerous failed attempts since age 27. I've shared the significant abduction story on [another website] and also shared it many times as a group leader for abduction and paranormal incident counseling - which I am qualified to do, with a Master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology.
Last night's experience began like this: I was asleep on the couch (my wife's got a horrible cough this week). I was suddenly aware that the patio, which can be partially seen from the couch, was glowing bright green. Often times the abductions involve a green orb of light which enters the room first. I wasn't dreaming - I'll explain how I know this further on. I was then somehow seeing the patio as though I were outside, but I was floating at about 7 feet high. Although the shapes of things looked generally like the patio they had a much different feel to them - bright green energy lighting everything up, the trellis looked made of stone somehow, instead of wood. I could see the table and propane heater but I didn't know what the heater was - only be aware of the shape.
I tried to stop the abduction at this point and tried to take control of my body. I was able to get my feet on the ground but couldn't keep my balance at all - it took all I had mentally to stay on the ground and I kept falling to the right. I think something may have been holding my left arm but I didn't see the being or get a feel for what it looked like.
I broke free and it seemed like I was drugged and floating. I kept trying to move forward, which I did several feet, enough to get a different view of the table and heater - still not knowing what the heater was. I started to turn back to look behind me and everything went black. Next thing I knew I woke up in a state of paralysis lying on the couch, unable to move anything. I'm a very advanced meditator and learned how to get out of paralysis as a young child so I quickly brought myself back into my body and fully woke up. I sat up, then stood up and went to the window. I looked outside for any signs of the event but nothing was evident.
******* Here's my take on what happened *******
First off - I am WELL aware of sleep apnia, sleep paralysis, lowered oxygen levels in the brain, and all the other things people sometimes blame these types of events on. It is part of my career to know these things.
I mentioned about knowing I wasn't dreaming, here's why: I nearly became a Buddhist monk, in the Vajrayana tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. I lived as a monk for several years and have done many varied dream awareness exercises. I have also been able to lucid dream at will since about age 5, can astral travel at will, and can change dreams or wake up at will. Not sure why this has been part of my life but it's just who I am. I KNOW I was not dreaming.
I feel that these abductions happen at the astral level of awareness. They often happen at night because our astral and dream self is basically floating free and most of us have no defenses against some"one" accessing our mind. Although most people think our individual consciousness can only stay within our "self" this is not true, according to numerous philosophical and religious traditions, as well as the personal experience of anyone who has had an NDE or OBE or who can astral travel, including Reiki healers, etc.
When our consciousness is outside our body, it mentally creates a working body, just like a dream body when you're dreaming. I believe this is the part of me that was attempting to walk while on the patio.
I've learned to block abduction attempts usually as soon as the green orb enters the room or if some"one" tunes into me. This event last night was the closest to an actual abduction I've had since the age 27 event. These have never been a negative thing for me and I've seen the blackness of space from an alien craft so I honestly feel a bit blessed for the experiences.
If you're curious about the actual abduction details (age 27 event) please check my threads; I don't want to post it other than there - U2U me if you can't find it.
One other thought - I've been doing a lot of distance healing (I'm a Reiki Master) in the last few days and think that may be why I was "selected" or noticed this time around. Been at least 4-5 months since the last attempt.
I'm happy to answer any questions on this, and happy to hear your experiences as well.

I've heard of other times where people got abducted and the beings expected to be remembered! Very interesting :)
