First of all let's understand what Astral Projection really means. By doing this we can see that the numerous misconceptions that make people
fear astral projection are only based on the lack of knowledge of what it really is. By means of a concentration excercise which allows oneself to consciously enter the astral.
The astral refers to the place, plane, or dimension in which our dreams take place. The astral in and of itself however, is an objective place. If we
had no dreams we would objectively see the astral, and what it really contains.
When we fall asleep we enter the astral, but unfortunately most of us do so unconsciously. We simply project our subconscious (fantasies, daydreams
etc...) into the astral. Since the astral dimension is subconsciouslly affected by thought, any thought you have will affect its matter, or better
yet, how you perceive it. These subconscious projections, or dreams, cloud our perception of the astral and we completely lose ourselves in them.
An astral projection then, is a conscious and objective experience in the astral, opposed to an unconscious and subjective one which we call a
An astral projection can be achieved in two ways:
By realizing that one is dreaming and choosing to dissolve the dream, thereby beginning an astral projection.
The second way of achieving an astral projection lets us verify that the only thing stopping us from astral projecting at night is our subconscious.
By directly experiencing the shift between a dream and an objective astral projection we realize that during the night, whether dreaming or not,
we're out of our body, and that astral projection only allows us to be conscious of that fact. Since this is the only difference between a dream and
an astral projection (unconscious or conscious), we can clearly see that astral projection does not have any risk, only advantages:
Greater awareness of reality.
Personal verification of our immortality.
An increased desire for answers.
Obtaining personal answers.
Increased respect for life.
Increase in knowledge and wisdom.
Knowing instead of believing.
Increased inner peace.
Increased zest for living
Of course there's no reason to simply believe what I'm saying and accept it as fact,and you don't have to! Anyone can directly experience the shift
between a dream and an astral projection. Every night our astral body leaves our physical one and travels the astral dimension. It is our choice if we
want to do so unconsciously (dreams), or consciously (astral projection).
