Transcript of Astral Projection

An out of body experience Astral Projection Defined by Wikipedia The Basics Astral Projection Today What is the percentage of people who
have had a possible OBE without knowing so? Fast forward to today, and you’ll realize similar experiences continue to be reported. The Dalai Lama has said that “consciousness can be trained to leave the physical body”. Studies have suggested that up to 5% of Americans have experienced some form of astral projection. And scientific journals have documented experiments where participants can be induced into an out of body experience. Questions Astral Projection Astral Projection can be defined as Astral Travel.
Astral Projection (or astral travel) is an interpretation of out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of an "astral body" separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it. Astral projection or travel denotes the astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the astral plane. The idea of astral travel is rooted back to common worldwide religious accounts of the afterlife in which the consciousness' or soul's journey is described in such terms as an out-of body experience, wherein the spiritual traveller leaves the physical body and travels in his/her subtle body (or dreambody or astral body) into ‘higher’ realms What do the ancient Hindus, medieval civilizations, countless modern-day scientists and spiritual leaders have in common? They’ve all extensively documented the theory of astral projection, or out-of-body experiences (OBE)—the theory that it’s possible for a person to leave the physical body, and experience something beyond the physical realm. Astral Projection This theory extends across the history of human civilization, touching virtually every corner of the globe—from the above-mentioned civilizations to Inuit, Amazonian and Japanese cultures. Various chapters in the Bible directly reference astral projection. The Yoga Vasistha, an ancient Hindu text, repeatedly speaks of leaving the confines of the physical body. In ancient Chinese scripture, the great Daoist sage Han Xiang Zi was said to have projected his consciousness into a room of people, as he lay fast asleep next door. Today, countless people across the world claim they are able to use this phenomenon for a variety of purposes. Some say it gives them spiritual clarity, some use it to enhance their intuition, some to gain a deeper understanding of the people and circumstances surrounding them, and some even to experience hyper-realistic dreams that allow them to project their consciousness to any location in the world.The key to experiencing astral projection for yourself is to learn to see beyond the physical. Astral projection operates on the belief that all living beings possess an astral body. Spiritual Connection The astral body is said to be connected to the physical body through the umbilicus (your belly button) along what is known as the silver cord—and it is this astral body that you must learn to control. Once you do, imagine the possibilities. Imagine being able to effectively part from your body and travel to another world where time, space, gravity and many other “laws” that exist in the 3rd dimension can no longer limit you. Imagine being able to tap into a sea of infinite wisdom, and use it to both elevate your spirituality, and your physical experience in tandem. It is believed astral projection can give you sensations, emotions, intuition and knowledge that you’d never otherwise have access to—and that’s why many call it the ultimate spiritual experience. What is used to promote or make Astral Projection come easy to beginners? If you could have an OBE where would you want your Astral body to go first?
