Hunting Down Spirit

I recall it well, my first tome of Astral Projection Knowledge. "Astral Projection for Beginners" by an, Edain McCoy, I believe. Hehehe... good times.

You know, one those blue and yellow "beginner" books you see any time you go to the New Age section of a book store? I would not put that stupid thing down. I was in my sophomore year at the time, I believe. And while I should have been busy studying or doing the work I was given, I was diving into the book, and getting in trouble all the while. I became quite adept at hiding it, or stowing it away quickly when a teacher walked by. Or anyone for that matter. At the time and in a community that close minded, it would have outcasted me even further from anyone. (During those days that was a big deal to me, for whatever reason.)

For a long time, all I did was read that book, and peoples stories online. I was often alone. G's interests were quite ephemeral. That's just how he was. Plus, he went to a different school. So I read my book and investigated this tantalizing phenomenon. I did not want to get too close to belief, but I could absolutely not let it go. I recall my main interests with astral projection:

1- Spirit guides. Oh man, what is it about the idea of a denizen of another world who watches your growth and is there to help you that is so awe inspiring. Whats more, the things these beings were alleged to assist with what they can tell you about you. Why did it interest me so to know about myself?

2- The Akashic records. Supposedly a storehouse of all the information in the universe including past lives and a souls specific information. This was the first time I was exposed to an idea like past lives and reincarnation. My mind was being blown. Whats more, what secrets could this mystical library hold..?

3- Seeing what existed outside of the physical universe. This statement doesn't necessarily make sense, for if something "exists" it is part of the universe so there couldn't be anything... outside... but outside of the confines of the physical plane other planes it could be witnessed... supposedly. Now that set my mind awhirl...

So there was only one thing to do then, get more books, and start trying it myself!
