If you can consider the luxury of a heavily taxed pack of cigarettes and own your own vehicle, you aren't poor. For a $500 investment and about 4 hours per week of extra work, you can create your own aquaponic setup at home and produce 80% of the food you need to eat. Humans follow a linear progression of income gains over the course of their lifetime because they are creatures of habit. If you never invest in the means of production, you will never increase your income by more than a handful of percentage points with each passing year. If your income doesn't grow by at least 3% per year, you are losing the game by any objective measurement. In reality, your income should grow by at least 12% per year, if not 40% or 500% if you're lucky. Those who live in a capitalist country and refuse to participate as capitalists are pissing away the greatest opportunity humankind has ever known. Capitalism is literally the operation of your freedom in actuality. If you aren't playing the game, you might as well live in a despotic nation. Life for you is no different from slaves in a fascist country.

I read alot of threads on lucid and astral. And here we have a person, able to bend space and time, reach Higher Self or Guide and start brainstorming why they're here, and learn abilities they can use in the real world. Most do other things.
This is the jackpot in manifesting. Feel really happy about things and manifest them here, from there. With Spirit and Source, and maybe if a person's goal is discovering who they are and their loving essence and that they came in with real goals to polish up and shine love and reach people or do things, then they're going to be envisioning what is in partnership with Source.
I understand what you are saying to a degree. I just failed to see how they claimed to be poor and could not buy bigmacs and you said that astal projection would help? I am not saying it would not but I feel this may be more of a real world problem than a spiritual endeavour. please explain how you feel your advice may help the OP.
