Title: 6 Common Myths and Misconceptions About Astral Projection
Post by: Whirlwind on April 21, 2016, 09:40:46
This is a post for beginners, by a beginner. Most of what I've learned has come from this forum, and the highly experienced Travelers here who selflessly dedicate their time to teaching others. Thank you to the members who have long ago mastered this practice yet who stick around to work as the hands of the Universe to spread their knowledge and wisdom. If I have misunderstood anything or concluded wrong, please correct me!


1. People Who Astrally Project Have Learned to Leave Their Bodies

Perhaps the biggest misconception, even among astral projectors themselves, is that learning to AP is the practice of attempting to leave one's body. The truth is that dreams take place in alternate realities and different dimensions. To get to those places, your consciousness must travel. For it to travel, it needs a vehicle. We don't remember most of these travels. The snippets of them we do sometimes remember are usually vague, fleeting, conceptually distorted. This so-called astral projection is simply a practice of remaining conscious as that journey begins, thereby remembering it clearly; it is not the natural process that changes, but the skill of remembering it.

2. Dreams are Just Organic Illusions Manufactured By the Brain

REM sleep is the scientific observation of brain activity during, but it is not an observation or explanation of the phenomenon. Dreams are not merely a product of the mind. These interdimensional travels do not take place in the regular physical world, though. That's a RTZ OBE (Real Time OBE), but they both involve one leaving one's body, and this happens naturally; sometimes you sleep in your astral body with it floating just above your physical body. Sometimes it gets up and invisibly moves about here in the physical world. Sometimes it phases into other dimensions. Sometimes one is aware and in conscious control, and other times one is not.

3. Astral Projection is Unnatural

Astral projection is a naturally evolved ability. Human beings are curious animals. And, like all curious animals, they learn things. Sometimes they learn how to remember things. Everyone is already having adventures and explorations and relationships of which they're unaware; we have another life a double life, if I may and our duel existence is a linear continuum by which we have a dual set of memories and skill sets. Strengthening the natural ability for lucidity and memory is no more unnatural than strengthening one's concentration or intent or any other skill, mental, spiritual, or physical.


4. You Are Vulnerable to Possession When You AP

The common misconception that one's body may be "stolen" or "possessed" by some discarnate entity while one is APing is based on the aforementioned misconception, that astral projectors have learned to leave their bodies. The physical body is not an empty shell while one is APing. That is, rather, the description of a corpse. A living person "out" in their astral body is just as connected to their physical body as when not having an OBE. Think of the astral cord as merely an extension cord. The physical and astral bodies are always separate, even when aligned. There's no difference when the astral "double" pops out of the physical. So we are no more vulnerable to attack while APing than during our waking life.

5. Negative Entities Are to Be Feared

I broke my fear barrier concerning so-called "negs" some time ago. Not through courage, but by knowledge. I've learned how much more powerful human souls are than these pesky little shadows. I know for a fact that there is nothing "out there" that can hurt us. The weird thing about it all turns out to be that the only power that these natural, antimatter based animals have to affect anyone or anything is to scare people...the reason being that this is merely their natural way of hunting their food, because they eat fear. They are harmless pests: annoying, gross, but not dangerous. No one has actually ever been harmed by one in any way, physically, mentally, or spiritually. So take a deep breath and relax. They don't even exist for me anymore because I used Love on them once the way one might spray for roaches.

6. OBEs, AP, LDs, Remote Viewing, and Conscious Projection Are Inherently Very Different Things Involving Radically Different Processes

This misunderstanding may have arisen due to the vastly different ways, methods, and degrees by which these sorts of things happen. Though categories may be helpful sometimes, in truth astral projection, OBEs, Lucid Dreaming, remote viewing, and conscious projection all fall under the umbrella of the same phenomenon. Such as with meditation; many techniques and many states. Both the physical realm and the Wider Reality are illusory projections within the Void (fuzzy 3D darkness), the only thing that really exists. Our environments change around us, but (our) awareness, First Child of the Void, is our one constant.

Great post. Especially the part about the negs: Using love on negs like bug spray on cockroaches. So true.

There is actually proof that there is something going on. Precognition studies are sometimes done with dreams and AP type techniques. The results are that there is unexplainable accuracy in predicting events. In applied precognition groups  use both ERV,  projection and dreaming to make predictions.  Actually ERV covers anything the Monroe institute taught while Bob Monroe was still alive. Thats where it originated from.

Proof of AP and precognition all at once...facinating, Bluefirephoenix!
