Many people may fear astral travel. Astral travel can reveal truths about yourself that you may fervently wish to avoid. Astral travel can expose you to dangers you may be attracted to, dangers you can always avoid or turn to your advantage. A better understanding of these dangers often helps.
About Astral Travel, Part 2, Safe Journeys
You always project your desires to learn more about yourself and the worlds around you into your astral travels. Every question you ask sends an astral emissary of yourself out into the cosmos to find an answer.
Contrary to popular belief, you may have more than one astral body at any given time. Your conscious awareness may be limited to focusing on only a single astral projection at a time, but you may have many simultaneous astral projections working entirely beyond the limits of your conscious awareness.
There are no limits to how many astral projections you can create or maintain at any time.
Many authorities on astral projection describe a cord that ties your astral form to your physical body. Some may warn that you must never allow this cord to be cut. In our experience, it is impossible to cut this cord in any manner that will bring you any irreparable harm.
The reason many authorities warn not to cut this cord is that they do not understand the full scope of astral travel; they focus on a single astral mission to the exclusion of all others. They may mistakenly believe they are projecting their souls out of their bodies, and that they may lose their souls if this cord is cut.
There is no risk of losing your soul.
Astral projection does not project your soul out of your body. Instead, astral projection sends a clone of your soul beyond the limits of your physical body. This clone of your soul remains in contact with you at all times. This contact between your incarnate soul and your astral clones may often be visualized as a gold or silver cord, or strand of light.
Everything happening to any of your astral emissaries will ordinarily be directly and immediately communicated back to you, instantaneously. You may update your astral clones with new instructions at any time. Any communications from your astral bodies are typically stored as memories deep in your non-consciousness where they will not disturb you until you are ready to look for them. Your soul always remains in your body to receive and record your astral journey experiences.
There is no danger that your soul may be lost during an astral journey.
In those instances where a person appears to have possibly permanently departed their body, they are simply choosing to become so involved in their astral life that they have chosen, of their own free will, to ignore their physical life.
You can never, ever be trapped away from your body against your own free will.
Nonetheless, there are places that are so fascinating to explore, places that you may be so powerfully attracted to, places that may keep you so deeply pre-occupied, that you ignore your physical welfare at your very peril. In some cases, a deep psychic wound may motivate you to remain in astral because the pain of your wound does not bother you so much there.
In the absence of your will to live, you may appear to become possessed by another spirit while you travel in astral. These seemingly unfamiliar spirits that manifest in your body when you have abandoned it always have spiritual contracts with you that will typically require them to help preserve you from harm as best they may until you are ready to return.
These other spirits may be parts of you that have been repressed or suppressed by your cognitive processes of denial. They may be aspects of yourself that you may have deliberately or unconsciously neglected because they are associated with traumatic events in your life that you are trying to avoid healing because it hurts too much to approach them in order to help yourself to heal.
Sometimes the spiritual entities that act as your guardians while you appear to be out of your body are nearly indistinguishable from yourself; they may appear to be indistinguishable to your family, friends, or other people. Sometimes they may seem to be indistinguishable from you as you regard yourself as well.
Your guardians may often seem to be you in all regards; the key difference being that a guardian form of yourself may often be a part of you that is more spiritually evolved than other parts of you. In your more highly evolved spiritual forms you are typically much better able to cope with those things in your life that may sometimes befuddle you or enmire you in pointless pain.
At other times, these entities may be your spirit guides, your angels, or your demons.
Typically, it is the potential appearance of your personal demons that has made so many cultures and people afraid of astral travel. Demons are not evil beings; however, demons are often very frightening; they may sometimes be considered to cause harm.
Your demons can do no actual harm that is not a part of your personal will. God permits you to do harm, because you have been given His most precious gift of all, your free will.
If a demon appears to cause any harm, it is important to remember that your demon is always serving you. If you are upset by any harm manifested by your demons, then you must take responsibility to understand what has motivated you to cause harm; you must heal yourself so that you are no longer motivated to cause such harm.
On occasion, the entities that manifest in your body when you have abandoned it to focus more intensely upon your astral travels may be entities that seem to be entirely foreign to yourself. They may be other people, such as powerful sorcerers, they may be shadow parts of your friends or family members. Sometimes, they may appear to be alien, inhuman entities who have asked your permission to enter into a contract with you to use your body in your absence to allow them to explore our Earthly realms and all of the conditions of being human.
Any alien spirits that animate your body in your absence seek to understand humanity better in order to learn how to communicate with us more effectively.
Many cases of UFO 'abductions' are really a sort of exchange school program where aliens trade places with you, allowing you to explore their worlds in their bodies while you reciprocally allow them the benefit of exploring your worlds in your bodies.
Most such close encounters are very beneficial to astral travelers. During the course of our lives, we often become obsessed with various fears that can cause physical ailments or perpetuate faulty cognitive processes that may cripple us in various ways. When an alien visits Earth in your body, they may often find and temporarily heal your cognitive errors or physical ailments.
When you return from astral experiences of living as aliens, you may often return with alien cognitive processes, including your kinesthetic perceptions of your body, which may not work well in Earthly contexts. Your behavior may seem unusual to others as a result, and on rare occasions, your behavior may put you at risk.
For instance, you may have returned from a world where everyone flies and you may still feel as if you have wings. You may mistakenly believe you can fly. You were able to fly in the alien world you visited in the form of a native alien, but it is inadvisable to try to do so on Earth unless you only try to fly from the ground up. One common error is to try to fly by leaping off a tall building. In this manner, you may mistakenly put yourself in peril as a result of astral traveling.
It is important to remember that you can always return home to your physical body from any of your astral travels. Observing a few simple precautions may help.
Avoid becoming distracted by your astral travels in dangerous situations for your physical body such as when having an argument, driving a car, or using sharp tools.
Focus on what you most love about your life daily, those things that most motivate you to live your life well in this world. Make plans with your families and friends that you sincerely intend to keep.
Learn your own heart well, any hidden motives to hurt yourself may sometimes be exacerbated by astral travel or may motivate you to avoid returning.
Many things can help make astral travel seem safer for those inexperienced with consciously directing their astral journeys.
Experiment, Enjoy, Evolve!
Cherish your dreams, they are reflections of your astral travels.
