There is a website under development about astral projection. So far there is a trailer and the possibility to sign up to informational updates and to follow the developers on Facebook and Twitter.

Here is the website and  below is the trailer (nice to see in highest quality).

At one point in my life I was very depressed. It went so far that the thoughts that were the most calming for me were the thoughts of suicide. I wasn’t near committing suicide though.

I went to therapy and it was soon established that my self-esteem was low. I was recommended certain books that were supposed to increase the self-esteem if one did the practices in them.

I remember reading a comment for one of the books, where a woman told how life changing the book was for her. I started wondering how much it could change your life. That I would stop being depressed was to me at the time just a dream, something I theoretically thought that I could achieve, but it really just seemed like it in theory, that in reality it wouldn’t happen.

I started thinking, wondering how much one can change inside. How much change could one do to the experience of life?

Today I thought of how real the “techniques” and practices of Gnosis are. I’ve had ideas of the things explained in these teachings, but to experience it is really something else. These techniques really do work and I think I can’t even begin to imagine the potential that they hold. With practice I will experience it.

I remember the first time I consciously left my physical body to enter the so-called first of the nine heavens (astral). What an experience! I thought that I could do it, but here it also felt like “only theoretically, not in reality”. There I was, walking/flying consciously in another dimension. Another reality. When I read the book of self-esteem, I would never have imagined that I would do that. In this western society, how many people get taught that? Perhaps later, but then they might be convinced of it being nonsense.

Of course many who find these teachings at first will not know “the realness” of it. To experience things are really what matters; the theory is in itself worthless. It is only good in order to know what to do to get the experiences. I think many know of the old Gnostics, of “those who knew”, but few imagine that the techniques and practices to get Gnosis (knowledge through direct personal experience) are available today and that they indeed work. No matter how many people giving first hand accounts of what they have experienced, it only gets real for the individual when it is experienced personally.

I like this quote from Belsebuub:

Look, this is for ordinary people, it’s about a person self-realizing. Forget all the nonsense about becoming a spiritual figure, it’s about you and the person next to you self-realizing and being liberated from the processes of matter and nature. Self-realized people are not like the caricatures of spiritual figures that religions and fantasy has made them out to be, consciousness is neutral, and the personality remains, so you’ll appear to be the same superficially, as your personality won’t change, but you will feel very different and will perceive the world in a new way. I wish there was a strong group of self-realized individuals, such intelligent people could do so much for the world.

As I mentioned in my previous post, you are said to be able to call upon a spiritual being in the astral plane. These can teach you things to help you on your work upon yourself for example. Examples of spiritual beings that I have heard that you can call on in the astral plane is: Yeshua Ben Pandira (Jesus), Buddha, Samael Aun Weor, Rabolu, Belsebuub, etc. It needs to be individuals who have a spiritual part incarnated within them which is called the Master or Atman. This part is incarnated at the end of the first mountain, and it has its own unique name. The given examples above are the names of the Masters of the individuals.

Though as this is taught to be possible to do, you are also said to likely bump into sinister beings who will try to mislead you from the path. These teachings explain how to transform yourself into a spiritual being and every spiritual being that exists is said to have done this work, have transformed themselves into beings of light. The sinister beings are also said to have made themselves into the way they are, have transformed themselves into beings of darkness. And when you call on a Master in the astral, the sinister beings are said to sometimes come to you, trying to pretend that they are the Master and try to mislead you. I have heard stories of this and people say that sometimes it is very obvious, like the sinister being is trying to look like the Master, but fails so hard to do so. Anyway, there are recitations that one can do which are said to get rid of any sinister being. This can be used to get rid of them and also to check whether or not you are encountering a spiritual being or if it is a sinister being. As sinister beings are said to disappear when doing these recitations, the spiritual beings do not.

One recitation is called Jupiter, and you use it by placing your left hand over your solar plexus and use your right hand to shape it like a gun. So the little finger and the ring finger is closed while the middle finger and the index finger is pointing straight out, and the thumb is also straight up. So this forms the hand in the shape of a gun. You then, pointing the thumb upwards and your middle and index fingers towards the sinister being, while holding your left hand on your solar plexus, say:

In the Name of Jupiter,
Father of Gods,
I conjure you,
Te Vigos Cosilim.

Here Belsebuub says it: http://www.belsebuub.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Belsebuub_Teachings_Jupiter_recitation.mp3

You say this three times in order for full effect, and it “should” disappear after those three times, if not earlier.

The newest edition I have seen of it though is:

In the Name of Jupiter,
Father of Deities,
I expel you,
Te Vigos Cosilim.

But they probably both work just fine.

Another recitation which is not said to require anything with your hands or anything, is called Bellilin. This has a melody to it though, so you will need to listen to it here: http://www.belsebuub.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Belsebuub_Teachings_Bellilin_recitation.mp3

Here is the text:

Bellilin Bellilin Bellilin,
Amphora of salvation,
I would like to be next to you,
Materialism has no strength next to me,
Bellilin Bellilin Bellilin.

All of that is repeated three times as well for full effect. Bellilin is explained as a kind of divine astral wind which blows negativity away.

There is a page where people have shared their astral experiences with Belsebuub. You can find them here: http://www.belsebuubcommunity.com/share-an-experience-youve-had-with-belsebuub/

I have had dreams where I have felt love while being taught by someone several times, where I interpreted the individual as Belsebuub most of those times. In one interesting dream I had where I was speaking with Belsebuub, there was something very odd in that dream which I later checked in a general dream symbol guide. And the odd thing in the dream, according to that guide, would mean that it was an individual walking the path which was spreading the teaching. In the dream I was taught about awareness, how to get it right (this is only the part that I remember) and it was very much what I needed to apply in daily life to get awareness working, and it worked.

Although the three key components are said to be essential for walking the esoteric path to enlightenment, there are other things which are highlighted as important too. One of these things is out-of-body experiences, particularly astral experiences. I will in this post explain information about it and share some own experiences.

As mentioned in a previous post, the seven dimensions are explained as the following:

1. Length
2. Width
3. Height
4. Time
5. Eternity
6. Causal
7. Spirit

This does not mean that there are only seven “levels” of existences in the universe though. The fifth dimension for example, here called eternity, can be divided into two main planes: the astral plane and the mental plane.

When we go to sleep we go into the astral plane. Usually, most people are not conscious of it though. If you have been practicing awareness, observing your various egos, you might have seen how much they keep you asleep, unaware of reality. They cause you to dream, to live in your own self-created fantasies. The same way you are dreaming in the astral plane, but there the dreams materialize and they become “real” to you and since you are not in the physical world, it is more difficult to wake up (become aware) in the astral plane.

There are two ways of having conscious astral experiences. One is to project directly there. This is called astral projection. Belsebuub has a whole book regarding astral travel and dreams (which is being worked on to be released as a free downloadable eBook soon), but I will explain the essentials for projecting to the astral plane. First we need to be deeply relaxed. This is important, since we need this in order for our physical body to fall asleep. We lie down comfortably, relaxing all of our muscles one by one, taking time to deeply relax our body. When we are deeply relaxed in our entire body, we concentrate our minds upon ONE thing. If we fall asleep when we have our minds concentrated, we are conscious in the astral. We can then experience our astral body splitting from the physical body and we can leave the bed and explore the astral plane.

Leaving BodyAnother way to have conscious astral experiences is to become aware when you already are in the astral plane. In order to increase the chances of this happening, we need to be more aware in our daily life here in the physical world. The more aware you are here, the more aware you will be in the astral plane. Then you will see that even though you are not fully conscious there, your dreams may become more vivid. And you will also increase the chances of waking up. Another thing that will also increase the chances, which is very much tied together with awareness, is to regularly question if you are in the physical or in the astral plane. There are different ways of checking this. One way is to pull your finger, as in the astral it is said to stretch when you do this. Another way is to jump and see if you can float or fly (it is possible in the astral plane). You can also remember how you got to the place you are now or if anything strange has happened. It is important however to genuinely question the reality, because if we are not questioning it genuinely here, we might do the same in the astral plane. We can question it without truly question it and keep thinking that we are in the physical world. Also the reality checks might not work. For example, if you pull your finger expecting it NOT to stretch, it is very possible that is does not stretch.

Even though exploring the astral plane is not a key component for walking the path, it is said to be very important, since we through it can explore life after death and other workings of reality, meet with spiritual beings and be given teachings from them and also from our own Being, and many, many other things. This will be very helpful for the work upon ourselves. Both when it comes to the will of going against the egos and also when it comes to doing it right. Through it we can gain faith (which we gain through direct experiences, this is not to confuse with belief) which will help us pushing forward in this work.

The first time I astral projected I had had quite a few astral experiences, mostly short ones, where I had woken up in the astral plane. But I thought that I would share my first astral projection.

I was in bed, concentrating, trying to project to the astral plane. I experienced vibrations in my entire body and also hearing it in my ears. This was the process of the astral body splitting and when I had split, I stood up in the room in which I was lying. It was dark and I think that I tried to turn on the lights, but in vain. I got out from my room and went up the stairs. I saw my dog and I bent down (he is not very high) to “say hello”. He was not very calm though, either he was excited or he was nervous. I decided to leave him alone. I went into another room in which I could see my mother, but she did not seem to see me. She seemed pretty unconscious. Then I thought that I would see if I could see something there which I could later check here in the physical. So I saw a letter which had a signature on it on the bottom left of the paper.

After that, I thought I would see if I could get a teaching from my divine Mother. I asked to be shown something and took a jump (which I had read that one could do) and I slowly started floating into another room. I did not control where I was floating. However after a while of floating in that room towards a wall (in the astral you “should” be able to go through objects such as walls) I woke up.

I checked in the physical world if I could see that letter with the signature on it. I could. In the astral, the letter was just lying there by itself. In the physical it was inside an envelope which I had to open to see the signature. But the astral plane is said to be outside of time for example, so things are not said to always look exactly as it does here in the physical. Things which are now moved might be seen there as not moved, for example.

This experience was very inspiring to me and gave me strength to keep going with these explorations. I have had more experiences after this one. I have also projected to the astral, exploring it, returned to my body after a while, and straight away projected back to the astral by concentrating my mind without moving. I have done this for up to 10 times in a row. I stopped because I felt like going up, but I could probably have kept doing it more. You do not need to have any “special inborn ability” to go consciously into the astral plane. I had never had these experiences nor had I ever had anything “special” or “mystical” about me. I just did the exercises that were written in Belsebuub’s book and then I managaged to do it. They are really simple ones.
