    It's true that I also want to organize these ideas and practices but at the same time like you've said they overlap which I recognize but sometimes it does help to have these respectively categorized.

    Sincerely,

    Woah.. when I've drifted from my body (although I'm always just in my own room), I see from the ceiling, right in the corner of the room. I can't move from that position though and usually just panic and wake up safe and sound in my body again.

    Sorry for the little derail then. I got excited.

    Not addressed to me but i'd like to address it.

    I suppose my guides are more pragmatic. They show me a hammer and say all hammers are alike so why make them different. Then hand me a ball-ping hammer and say now remove that nail! You can try and try and perhaps beat it out of whatever it's in but the fact is the ball-ping is not made to remove the nail. Then they hand me a simple claw hammer and tell me to drive a spike into the pavement. Again, the claw hammer can do it after much wasted time and effort but then tell my the heavy mallet has a name and purpose and that is what it was designed for. Then give me a heavy mallet and tell me to drive the finishing nail knowing I will destroy the delicate piece of wood the finishing nail is supposed to go into because I should use a setting tool and a smaller hammer.

    Tools have names and functions / purposes. Just because someone may use them in a manner they were not intended or not have proper training to use them is not really a reasonable excuse to say it's ok. Does it matter? To the novice probably not. In part because they will never be a master of that skill or craft. To the master or one who seeks to master a craft or skill then yes it matters. Yes many skills overlap or have similarities to other skills but just because they have similarities does not make them the same nor even close enough that one can simply presume that it works for one so it will work for something else. It's bad enough when it comes to that presumption with language alone much less a skill set and the demonstration / application of said skills.

    Not occultish but consider I was stationed in Scotland for a few years. Saw quite a few things, learnt quite a few terms and concepts. Went to the other side of Scotland and used those same terms and names and got looked at like I was an idiot. Told basically oh that's how the back-wards people say it or think it's done. Then went down to England and discovered they were sure all of Scotland was whacked and both groups were wrong about how they were doing some skill set and procedures. Of course being an American and going home they were quite certain both groups were doing it wrong and told me how it should be done. Did it matter? Sure did to each of those groups and to their heritage and identity and knowledge of things. Mattered to me in that I knew I needed to be broader based in who I was speaking to and how it pertained to them and how they related to that concept if I wished to speak to them about it. Then figure all of those groups at least spoke some variation of English though words might have differing meanings or usages unlike interjecting a foreign language into such as Japanese, Spanish, etc.

    But then I admit I came in at a different age in the pagan / occult community and blanket terminology didn't suit us, we preferred to use as many descriptive words and terms as possible to understand and define what we we're doing and seeing.

    Just a curiosity question but did you happen to notice what point your eyes or focus had been fixed upon? Just my own observation and from speaking to other's but it seems I find a lot of times it seem's the first place I realize I am at is the point where my focus was fixed. Sort of where I stared is where I arrive. Yet if I do a color regression or relaxation type thing then I find I float up and out or fall down into the floor. I know initially I used to sort of freak out and jerk and i'd be right back in my body though many times i'd also be sort of sick as well as if such a rushed return caused a disorientation sensation and sickness like an air sickness. Sort of like you get when your in a car and you go over a series of bumps and your stomach sort of hangs for a moment before falling back in place.
