Spiritual Protection in the Astral Plane (Part II)

Shakti, the Divine MotherTwo very effective recitation techniques to dispell negtivity  are called Bellilin and Jupiter. Performing Jupiter recitation in the astral should be done in the following way: place the palm of your left hand on the solar plexus area, and point your right hand towards a spirit you want to dispell. Fingers of your right hand should be in a form of a gun, i.e. thumb up, middle and index finger outstreched. Then say out loud and with strenght:

In the name of Jupiter, father of gods, I dispel you, Te Vigos Cosilim!

The reason your left hand should be on your solar plexus is to protect yourself from possible interference by the spirit. Solar plexus is a sensitive area and it is there where they usually hit. Sometimes I would feel a pain in that area after attack, when returning back to my body, but it goes away quickly.

Bellilin is a little different than Jupiter as it entails singing. It can be done each time before doing a practice to clear a room of negativity. You do it out loud every time, but if for whatever reason you cannot, then do it mentally. After that you can do a circle of protection around your room so that nothing of a lower nature can enter in. You can also use it to dispell a neg (or a group of them) in the astral. Unlike Jupiter, you don’t have to point your hand at anyone specific. Just singing Bellilin will affect all of them. In my experience Bellilin has proven even stronger than Jupiter. The recitation goes like this:

Bellilin, Bellilin, Bellilin,

Amphora of salvation,

I would like to be next to you,

Materialism has no strength next to me,

Bellilin, Bellilin, Bellilin.

Here is how you sing it. You repeat it three times.

You can also perform both of these recitations in the physical world upon a person who acts negatively.  They won’t be as efficient because physical body serves as a shield. In the astral there is no such shield, and if a spirit is negative it will work on them. However the effect can still be significant and some have said that they still managed to clear away negativity from a person upon whom they performed the recitations.

One important thing to mention is, if you ever find yourself in a situation with a neg, it’s always better to re-locate yourself and not waste any time on them. Because the astral has less dimensional laws than our world, it is possbile to teleport where you want to go.  One of the techniques for teleporting while in the astral involves visualizing a location and feeling it around yourself. You can at first experiment how that works with locations that are very familiar to you and which you won’t have any problem visualizing. The key aspect of this technique is to FEEL yourself in a location you want to teleport to. Protective recitations are great if you are not good in quickly changing locations.

The Circle of Protection

Another very useful thing is the circle of protection. It is done by asking your own Divine Father, which is the main aspect of your Being/Spiritual Self, to order your elemental intercessor (another aspect of your Being) to draw a magical circle of protection around your room so that negative entities cannot enter. You make this petition to your Father out loud (or mentally if you cannot out loud) three times. Then you imagine a small sphere of light (representing your elemental intercessor) making a circle around your room three times. As the sphere moves it leaves a circle of light behind it. You should imagine it going from left to right. Thank the Father once you complete your circle of protection.

This circle is very effective and it prevents those of very low energy to enter it. One time when I woke up within the astral in my room, I heard someone trying to open a door but it couldn’t due to the circle. You can also do it, together with Bellilin, each time you go to sleep so that you protect yourself during the night.

Lastly, enjoy the astral. Don’t let negs get you back to your body by triggering your emotions. There are beautiful places in the astral, and negs are usually in the lower levels of the astral. Once you learn how to move up to higher astral levels you can easily avoid them altogether. Also remember that they cannot harm you, they may try to trick into thinking that they can, but they cannot. Your astral body cannot be harmed. Their main weapon is scaring you back to your body.

Fanatical worship

“Ananda said to the Buddha: “I think there has never been a teacher as great as you, nor will there ever be one as great in the future.”

The Buddha asked: “Have you known all the awakened ones, the buddhas of the past?”

“No, Honored One.”

“And are you able to know all the buddhas of the future?”

“No, Honored One.”

“Then I suppose you do know this awakened one’s mind completely?”

“No, Honored One, I do not even know your mind completely.”

“Then how can you make such a bold statement? It is better to talk what you know than to speculate foolishly.”

– Majjhima Nikaya

There are many  such examples around the world. People seeing there guru/savior/god  as the most developed person that ever existed.  Usually, such blinding viewpoint can hinder a person to get to a knowledge of reality and truth, because they are locking themselves in a very limiting mindset that is ruled by illusion.

Myths about astral travel

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.

What is sad is that such lies, myths and misinformation can have a detrimental effect on a person who has only just started questioning things and gathering information on astral travel and spirituality in general. Such “newbies” are an easy target because they have no experience of non-physical realities so they are easy to mislead and become diverted from their goal, making them believe that it’s better to drop this entire non-physical venture and to return to the comfort zone of mundane life.

I will mention here some of the myths about astral projection which I have encountered so far, and will explain briefly about each:

The “silver cord” can be cut and you can get lost while far away from the physical body.

This is a classic one. No, it cannot happen. The “silver cord” is a connection between your physical and astral body. It is cut only at the moment of your physical death. That connection can stretch to infinity. You cannot get lost or get stranded from your body. Each time you experience a heightened emotion like fear, elation, anger etc., you return back to the body. Because of this time limit of astral experience, there is the problem of acquiring substantial knowledge. Another way to return back is simply by intending to return.

One needs to be a vegetarian in order to astral project.

I’ve heard a lot of comments about various prerequisites for astral projection, one of them being the above mentioned. This is false. You don’t have to be a vegetarian in order to astral project. Eating quality food is definitely important and beneficial, but it’s not a requirement for astral travel, even though it may yield beneficial, long term results in this field. Generally, the only thing needed for astral projection is to be concentrated on one thing at the moment your physical body falls asleep.

You can astral project only during spring and summer.

This is false too. There are no seasonal restrictions related to astral travel. We actually astral travel every night we go to sleep (unconsciously), and we do that regardless of the seasons.

You can get possessed.

That’s completely untrue. There is a special connection between you and your physical body which makes it impossible for anyone to possess it. Also, astral beings do not really go around looking for other people’s bodies – not even negative entities. Possession is only possible if you deliberately invite an entity into your body and consciously allowing them to use it. That’s a form of channeling, and personally I wouldn’t recommend it.

You could die..

False! Your astral body cannot be destroyed, nor can you (the consciousness/soul) be destroyed. You can, for example, have your leg bitten by a sea creature, but it will be replaced by a new one. Astral body is of totally different substance than the physical body and astral plane has different laws than the physical dimension. In the astral you can fly through hot objects (like the sun) or you can pass through walls etc. without being even slightly harmed.

Astral projection is anti-religious/satanic, and if you do it you will end up in hell.

Religious dogmas and conditionings have left a big psychological imprint on people’s personalities, making them feel fearful to even thought about any other form of spirituality that is outside of orthodox religious thinking. If you want to get to the answers about life and realities beyond this mundane life, you will have to be brave enough to question things, regardless of if you are religious person or not.

Being open for knowledge is a prerequisite for receiving it. As a matter of fact, astral travel is directly and/or indirectly mentioned in many sacred texts, such as Mahabharata, Bible, Nag Hamadi scriptures and many others. Also, all sacred texts describe the process to spiritual awakening, which in a major way consists of destroying inferior inner energies such as fear, anger, jealousy, lust etc., and by doing that you are increasing your consciousness which is trapped within those energies. Increased consciousness further results in spontaneous astral projections and waking up within dreams. The person then eventually stops dreaming altogether and is conscious the entire time their physical body is asleep. Therefore as you can logically deduct, astral travel is a completely natural ability and it occurs spontaneously in the process of spiritual awakening.

So these were just some of the many myths that exist. I may update this post with some more myths. Just bear in mind that nothing can happen to you on your astral travels, you can only gain much.

Potentials of Astral Travel

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.

There are several terms related to astral travel. I will start with astral projection, which is commonly known as projection of our astral body (with our consciousness inside it) out of the physical body and into the 5th dimension, also known as the astral plane. Once out of the physical body in this conscious manner, we can explore this higher dimension, which is referred to as the astral travel.

The astral plane has many levels, separated from one another by their vibrational frequency. All of these levels occupy the same space, just as all dimensions occupy the same space. So for example, our three dimensional world is actually occupying the same space as the 5th dimension. The reason why we don’t see the 5th dimension is because we are on a lower frequency vibration. When we are outside of our physical body and in our astral bodies, we are automatically in the 5th dimension because the frequency of our astral body corresponds to the frequency of the astral plane. There are also higher types of spiritual bodies with which we can travel higher up, like the mental and causal bodies.

Our astral body is part of our spiritual make up; it’s a body which we can use and which we do use every night when we go to sleep. Each night when we fall asleep, our consciousness leaves the physical body and enters the lower astral levels where the dreamers from all around the planet go every night. The subconscious projects images in front of dreamers minds and they see it as a 3D reality. However, it’s not really a 3D reality but a mask of hallucinations projected by our subconscious. If we would become aware that we are dreaming, this mask would dissolve and we would see the reality of the astral world. The difference between usual falling asleep and astral projection is in being conscious/unconscious at the moment when the astral body is detaching from the physical.

The process of astral projection is very simple. One basically needs to lie down in a comfortable position and thoroughly relax the body, which is followed by concentration on one single thing, like for example a heartbeat, third eye, breathing etc. If one manages to maintain concentration at the time when the physical body falls asleep, then one will astral project because that is the moment when astral body detaches from the physical body. The astral and physical body are connected by the so-called silver cord, so there is no need to worry that you will not be able to find your way back. As we always get back after unconsciously venturing the astral world every night, so too we get back when we are out there consciously.

The astral body, as well as our consciousness/soul in it, is indestructible. Physical laws do not apply to it because the astral world has different dimensional laws. You cannot be harmed by falling on the ground from a great height or by flying through the sun etc. The astral world has much fewer laws than the physical world, and because of that we can fly, we can pass the solid objects, we can teleport and much more. Besides, we (the consciousness/soul) are immortal.

The potentials of the astral world are great, some even say “infinite”. You can travel to wherever you wish. You can explore far away places on Earth, our solar system and beyond. It’s a spiritual ability, so it is best to use it for spiritual purposes and ones own spiritual progress. It’s sad to see how many people are keen to use it to fulfill their own selfish desires, such as spying on people, having astral sex, creating ones own fantasy world etc. It is much better to use it to discover your own spiritual purpose, to know why you are here on Earth, where were you before you were born, and where you are going after your physical body dies. You can talk to beings of light, visit sacred temples and advanced extraterrestrial cities and receiving knowledge about things you have never dreamt of. To use it for the purpose of  spiritual awakening is the most productive use of it. You can be guided in this manner by Higher beings who want that you liberate your potential and get to know the Truth about Life.

Esoteric retreat centre in Scotland

(EDIT: This retreat centre is now closed. I will post if there will be more events in Scotland organized by the same group). I haven’t been on many spiritual retreats, but each time I attended I always gained a great deal of learning. Mostly this learning is related to knowledge of some of my psychological processes and subconscious states.  In general, spiritual retreats are a great way to meet like minded people, start new friendships, get practical insights on practices such as astral projection, meditation etc., and most importantly to gain knowledge about oneself.

Esoteric retreat centre in Scotland is located in Edinburgh’s country side. I have been there around a year ago and have received many benefits by making that journey to Scotland.  The centre is located in an old castle which is being transformed into truly sacred place. There are several rooms dedicated to practices, with the main one on the ground level. A lounge room has a fireplace, and a very nice view on the garden.

It feels like each of those rooms and passageways are charged with superior type of energy. I remember on the first night when we did an astral practice I felt genuine happiness due to high energy of that room. The main meditation room is particularly uplifting room which I find can be of a great help to achieve mystical and meditational states of consciousness. Inspiring spiritual art and nice incense scents are also a big part of the centre.

As the centre is located in the countryside there is a lot of natural areas where retreat attendees can go for walks or just sit outside and enjoy the present moment. Lounge room is a great place to relax, to read some spiritual text or to have some nice dialogues. Overall this description does not do it justice because the retreat centre is a place that can only be properly valued when personally experienced. It’s a spiritual sanctuary that can give strength, learning, understanding and mystical experiences to everyone searching for spiritual change.

Retreats are being held there almost every month. They are free of charge – including food and accommodation. Donations are welcome so that many more people can experience the value of such retreats.

Life changing benefits of Belzebuub’s teachings (part 1 – Background)

My interest in spirituality started when I was talking to someone about one of my childhood experience. The person told me that he knows of some other people that experienced the same thing. Even though what I experienced that time wasn’t related to out of body experience, the person told me that I could find out about what I saw by travelling out of body, the process commonly known as astral projection. I will never forget my reaction when I heard that something like this is possible. I was shocked, but in a very joyful way. It was like someone gave me the key for something that I longed for for a long time, but without really knowing thus far that I had the longing for that key.

I asked him many things about the astral, I wanted to know as much as possible. He told me that it is a dimension where one can get answers that are unavailable in this physical world. Soon afterwards he gave me a thin book about the subject, containing mostly brief history of astral projection and some techniques on how to achieve it. I was very excited about it, and decided to give it a go. However, in the same time I started to get pulled more and more into pleasures of mundane life. I was around 16 at the time and was keen to do popular things like going to parties and bars. My interest in mundane activities started to intensify from that point onwards so I put astral projection to a side.

When I was 17 I heard about Carlos Castaneda and his books. He was anthropologist that went to Mexico to study about an effects of some psychotropic plants. However, his initial study intention was replaced when he met a shaman that started teaching him about deeper and multidimensional side of life. I enjoyed his books even though I didn’t really understand them very much, but nevertheless they were making me aware of spiritual side of life, amidst the sea of mundane pleasures in which I was entrapped at the time.

When I was 18 I discovered a new book called Adventures Beyond the Body by William Buhlman. I was very happy when I borrowed it in a local library. I remember it was Friday, and usually I was very addicted to going out on Weekends, but as I started reading this book I didn’t cared much about going out that night. I ended up reading entire book in one go. The book was a compilation of the experiences of the writer and through it I became aware of many new potentials of travelling out of body. However, I was still very much addicted to socialization, social gatherings and parties, and many things that goes with it. I graduated high school at that age, and soon afterwards I moved to a new city to continue my studies, which in my eyes meant new opportunities for social gatherings, beyond restrictions of my parents.

About one year after that, a friend visited me where I lived during my studies, and conversation moved in a spiritual direction. We talked about spiritual things and astral projection. We decided that together we will investigate about astral projection and how to astral project. It was after that talk that my yearning for unknown got ignited again. I started gathering information about OBE’s (out of body experiences). Among many things I came across at that time, I found Robert Bruce works to be practical so I started applying some of his techniques. I remember one of such event, it was summer afternoon. I decided I will do “the rope technique”. This technique consist of imaging climbing an imaginary rope with imaginary hands. Some 15 minutes after I started having vibrational sensations in my body. Fear took over so I stopped the practice. I was aware of those sensations and that they are a natural part of the process of astral projection, but I was surprised that this started to happen so fast.

Around that time I found a website called Mysticweb. The website offered free courses on astral projection to which I gladly enrolled. It also had a nice chatroom which I often visited. I enjoyed the course and the chat very much, and people there were nice. The course  was very practical and simple, explaing in a step by step way how to astral project and use time out of body wisely. I found out that this website is also offering two other courses which deal with self-discovery and spiritual journey. The author of all the courses was spiritual teacher called Belzebuub.

I enrolled to self-discovery course but I didn’t really practiced the techniques.  I had an obstacle that was preventing me from starting a journey of self-discovery. I was also still addicted to social gatherings. About a year after that I managed to overcome the obstacle that was preventing me from delving into self-discovery. Immediately I stopped with all serious addictions that I had and I enrolled to the third course that Mysticweb (which then changed name to Gnosticweb) was offering. It was the course called Esoteric Wisdom and it was a practical course on starting ones own spiritual journey. From that point onward started a new chapter in my life.
