Well they call it astral projection based on the theory that our soul or consciousness, spark of essence goes somewhere else while we sleep. How often
do you go to bed and wake up with no worries or a problem solved?
They look at the astral or similar planes as being a different or higher frequency.. that is they exist parallel to this world but its a matter of
tuning into it like you would a radio.
So yes, SLEEP mode, I would consider to be something like this.. the consciousness goes somewhere else to learn, but actually i dont even look at it
like that.. if you play on the theory of infinite parellels... I look at the whole universe as one consciousness, and ourselves have multiple facets,
multiple realities and that the only thing that defines us, or our individual being is awareness.. the awareness of a state of consciousness. Right
now my awareness if focused on this human named steve (me).. and so that defines my identity for the time being.
When we dream I just think the awareness goes elsewhere since we aren't often aware of our body during a sleep cycle.. it goes elsewhere.. I have had
short naps where I was aware of my body, it was surreal, just felt like a deep trance but then I snapped out of it and lost my short term memory/
sense of time.
I think when we project its a matter of putting that awareness elsewhere, through alternate realities, they have different physics, different
energies, different many things.. you could look at it like a group dream like the "waking" world (I use quotations because it seems we are the most
asleep here).. where multiple energies ( or souls) manifest the realm.. the illusion, the game, the matrix etc.. whereas in a dream, there still lies
consciousness "external" from the individual self but it is of the self. I don't believe there is anything external it's just a matter of mmm..
reference? Energies exist interweaved. It's a human (or lower vibratory) mindset to separate and disassociate them. But please I must add; take this
as opinion not dictation of personal dogma
).. And so anyways..it seems dreaming is more like you're in control, you have the most influence,
you're orchestrating the realm, you're the "leader", and the realm has the restrictions only you place on it.
We could go on and talk about psychic abilities and theorize: "well.. if it is a dream and we can do anything.. why can't I fly right now?" and I
would say perhaps its a matter of realization, an awakening.. you could say we don't truly believe we can do it and so we are slowed down by this
dimensional energy barrier multiple energy sources have created and are maintaining, though not inescapable.
Am I rambling?
You dream state, your waking state, all that matters in my oppinion is that you are aware of it. Projecting from my own experience and cross
referencing other people's experiences, it seems the general consensus is you are part of a plane like this earth one, that have fluctuating sets of
rules depending where you are, or levels of energy allowance.
This paralysis state is like the in between stage, the interface from one energy form of consciousness (a soul pattern) to another energy form (body
pattern).. gaining awareness of this state can allow you explore multiple experiences.
Generally I have also found while projecting I might get some dream bleed through, especially if I end up back in my body.. I would think and it would
create, i would be literally in my own world, whereas while projecting it might as well be the same as I am here, typing. It just feels so different,
so vibrant, so lighter.
The black entities you speak of tend to dwell in lower density planes I would think.. and if you take in consideration that thought manifests, in a
realm of more energy allowance, less resistance, a higher frequency, the thought manifests quicker in a time
perspective so either A. You
created that entity, or B. You lured it in. Or C. Other factors and so on, etc.
I don't know if that was a mouthfull of words for you that you already resonate with, or if I really answered your questions.
I trust my subconscious to set me in the right direction, the right babbling tangent.
Let me know if you have questions or such.
Thanks for posting.
