The question of prerequisites for astral travel often arises in the minds of the people interested to learn this precious skill. “What is necessary? Can someone like me learn it? How long does it take?” etc. etc. These are just some of the many questions, but the criteria for it is often time neglected. Everybody is convinced that they can learn it if they apply sufficient effort. And this is true to an extent – it is definitely possible to experience the sensations of astral projection, or even full conscious split of the astral body from the physical, and perhaps even seeing what is out there in the lower astral plane. This is possible for more or less everyone who develops the ability of concentration and relaxation up to a certain point. However, to go beyond these initial stages, there is criteria that needs to be met.
When I started with serious training to learn how to astral travel I was in my early 20’s, and it always amazed me the amount of people who were in the age group 13-20 years of age who also wanted to learn it, yet the immature goals that they had was obviously keeping them away from reaching the astral plane, and yet they complained over and over why it is not happening to them; some of the most popular of such goals being astral sex, spying on others, fighting etc. Continue reading
When a seeker is serious about finding the truth about reality and existence, they will eventually encounter negative entities in the astral plane. Negative entities, also known as negs, are spirits that decided to follow the dark path, which involves strengthening and increasing negative inner aspects, such as anger, lust, pride, envy etc. The more they advance within this dark path, the more bestial they become, both internally and in their appearance, until eventually they turn into demons.
Many people these days have astral experiences, but most of them unfortunately do not know the potentials of it and are not aware that they can get some amazing answers about life, death and countless other mysteries. Many of them are also just not interested in it and are using the astral to indulge in their mundane desires. However, there are seekers who genuinely yearn for knowledge and they are the ones which, if they persist for long enough, will eventually be noticed by negative entities. Negs main weapon is scaring seekers so that their experience ends without achieving anything concrete. Continue reading
There are many myths about astral travel and astral projection which I have encountered. All of them mention some sort of “danger” of astral travel, which makes poor seekers weary as to whether they should continue with the spiritual search or not. What I’ve noticed is that most of the misinformation comes from people who don’t have any substantial astral experience. There are also people who deliberately spread misleading information, while knowing that what they spread is misleading. Such people do not want others to search for the truth for various reasons. Often they are just jealous that someone actually has enough courage to search for the important answers of life. Continue reading
Astral travel, the ability to travel outside of the physical body, is an amazing thing to experience and develop. It is said that every person experience this at least once in a lifetime. It seems it is very common for children to experience it, some of them even frequently. Unfortunately, this natural ability for children is lost as we get older. The reason for this is that as children we still do not have all the layers of psychological energies which develop and/or become active as we grow up. Those energies are the multiple inner subjective states, and also the formation of the personality with its conditioned behavioral patterns which then cloud our perception even more. I don’t remember having a conscious out of body experience as a child, but I do know that my dreams were extremely vivid and meaningful. Continue reading
