Astral Projection – The Self has no Boundaries

astral-travel Heard of that term before? After a conversation with a friend on tarot cards, interpretation of dreams and one’s subconscious mind, I was quite curious on finding out what it was all about and the research was a bit startling. If you interested in finding more about it, please continue reading.

You’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night with a jolt or an involuntary jerk, well, this is the astral body returning to the physical body. Astral Projection is basically an out of the body experience, OBE as its called. When a person sleeps in the night, your astral body (soul or consciousness) separates from your physical body.

Astral Projection

As unusual it may sound, it actually happens to every one of us when we fall asleep. Its like when the physical mind is asleep, the subconscious takes over. That means, everybody does it, but they just don’t remember it. This is because the ego hasn’t put in the effort to recall it.

Same is the case with dreams, if they are viewed as unimportant by you, then you won’t remember them. Usually your dreams are in the beginning of the sleep cycle, and those dreams are nothing more than an accumulation of the events and thoughts during the day. If you wake up in the morning and remember your dream real well, it is usually an astral body experience.

Everyone is actually born with this ability to leave the body and go some place else, some place where they always wanted to go. So your physical body just rests without any harm.

Its not like near-death experience

One might wonder whether astral projection is the same as having a near-death experience. That’s not true. In a death experience a person leaves the body for the final time, but when you astral project you decide where you want to go, and you are there, right away. You are controlling yourself with your subconscious thoughts. You must learn to allow the subconscious to take over, and not let the physical mind control you.

An astral experience

Many a times this can be achieved through drugs, especially LSD which helps you disconnect from your body and frees your mind. But some people do have bad trips, that’s because they don’t know how to handle an experience like that and they end up in the lower astral. One can have a full control of what you are doing and that is possible if one is free from distractions.

So have you ever had a paranormal experience?
