What Do You Think About Astral Projection?
Do you think it is possible or do you feel that it could be the mind playing tricks?
I have done it, but choose not to do it at this time. so yes it's more than possible, it was like a life goal. but once u attain a life goal, you don't necessary have to keep doing something you are successful at. The mind will play tricks on you at the lower levels of astral travel. what you have to do is go to the higher levels where higher thought is active. then you can avoid having to figure out if it's real or not. you just know it is real.
That's interesting indeed. It was via Lobsang Rampa's books that I first got to know about astral travel. Thank you very much, LaughingRain, for your very interesting comments! You should write an article about your experiences and personal views.
thank u Quicksand for both the question and your answer to me. actually I am an author on the subject and have published a book. Lobsang is interesting too.
Hi again LaughingRain, are all five senses alert during such a "trip?"
how did you astral project? did it come natural for you? why did you choose not to do it now?
I believe it is possible and have come close to achieving it. I haven't been practicing for a while but it is something I would like to give another shot. I have friends who are of the opinion that it is the mind playing tricks and do not judge them for it. It is what they choose to believe in.
Sure, but I guess the involvement of the mind also should be given some consideration. Thanks for your response. I appreciate it very much!
the prob inherent in astral projection is one of individual interpretation; in meeting another out there. is it the tail or the trunk of the elephant one examines? both are the elephant but ea insists they are correct.
I've had an experience however brief ... not something I would want to experience on a regular basis.
I think that it is totally possible. There have been too many folks that claim to have mastered the skill for them all to be foolish. I think that it takes a tremendous amount of concentration and discipline, as well as the true willingness to let the mind escape from the human collective concepts of reality and how to perceive it. I guess that one would also have to start thinking about the definition of reality and the purpose of this type of meditation. I would wager that when some folks claim that they see ghosts or demons while trying to have an out of body experience, they are really delving far enough into their own subconscious to be seeing what they need to see about themselves, rather than actually floating around in the outside world. There must also be some thought given to the fact that when you leave your body, you will not be looking through the translators of your eyes. Viewing the world through pure perception, as energy, will probably be very different. All of the pictures of people floating above themselves with a little cord of energy attaching themselves to their body may be accurate yet not totally complete in preparing one for what the experience truly entails. I agree with LaughingRain as far as the "you'll know it when you do it" concept.
you're right Scott that it's not the physical eyes that will see in this dimension. when I was out once, I noticed I had no eyes but could see in front, back and sides simultaneously, and since I became disoriented I focused frontwise. thankx!
What is the title of your book? I've read a few things on a.p. but have never put in the appropriate amount of work to actually achieve it. Maybe it's time to give it a serious attempt.
first book is Road Signs. 2nd book will be better called Soul Retrievals. 2nd book not out yet! thanks! can send a preview if you want.
Hi Scott, thanks for your views. You mean "seeing ghosts and demons" is actually a representation of one's own sub-level thoughts?
Astral projection is like your car ejecting you and using you to see and experience the world around you.
From my experience nothing is projected. I merely get out of my body and leave it behind, just as a driver gets out of their car.
With the humility, faith and love that Jesus talked about, it should become easier and easier to do this.
The US military called this sort of thing "remote viewing." They said it didn't work, but one retired general hinted that this is just a cover story. In Scientology we used to do this sort of thing a lot, but then upper management got to crazy and I left (c1986).
God created us in His image and likeness and He is not Homo sapiens. That should explain it for you.
I always thought it was an advanced form of dreaming where you "see" what you already know or have heard of. The mind playing the role of a cartoonist illustrates descriptions and definitions that you have heard of or read somewhere. Lone77*, thanks!
I like the ejection analogy. got a laff from that. I like the advanced form of dreaming also, where perhaps another part of the total being is remembering something it forgot in dream form. also a place to get shocked or have belief system crash.
