yea sure, sorry i must have missed that one when i was answering the posts
I say astral projection because OOBE takes place in the astral layer, and it is a real time projection which is slightly different from an Astral
Projection. Everything appears the same way as in the physical plane, except it is malleable and can be changed. As soon as you project your mind
changes your surroundings. Its my understanding that the astral plane is actually not there in any particular shape until someone steps in to the
observer seat( i will cover this is part 2 of the guide). SO when i say it can be changed by the mind, i literally mean that you have control over it
to a certain extent.
Now this brings up the question that's often asked, HOW is this different from a dream, and how do i know that it is real time?
The answer is simple, one must not create while projecting to have a true OOBE. Its easier said than done, since the mind is always trying to create.
Until one masters the creative forces within their mind, it is very difficult to have a true OOBE, so this is classified as Astral Projection(i like
to call it partial real time). During astral projection your mind creates the experience, but at the same time you are not creating everything. As you
get to different planes it become nearly as hard to create as on the physical plane. The astral plane is a very clever mix of reality and dream, while
those above the astral are pure and set in stone and are very difficult to manipulate ( and follow their own rules).
Some people are able to naturally have real time OOBE's while others are able to do it after some practice.......then again it begs the question...
what is reality.....???
My next post will cover these questions and how to better control your mind, and how it then becomes possible to travel beyond this time into
I hope that cleared things up for you slightly, i kinda feel like it may have dug the rabbit hole deeper. I can only speak from my experiences, and
the astral planes appear slightly different to everyone. This is how ive interpreted events, and lead me to these conclusions. I encourage everyone to
try to seek out their own answers.
