Astral Projection / Out-of-Body Experience

What is Astral Projection?

Astral Projection is the separation of the consciousness from the vehicles of manifestation (or bodies), produced by changes in the frequencies of vibration or energy of these vehicles. As we are able to project every night, astral projection is a natural process inherent to all human beings.

How does it occur?

Our bodies have different structures and densities. During the day (when we are awake) these bodies remain embedded, one within another, like Russian dolls. However, when we fall asleep, there is a natural energetic ease that predisposes the Psychosoma (or Astral Body, which is a duplicate of the physical body but more subtle) to break free and move away.

Why does it occur?

The physical body needs to revitalize every night, and the Psychosoma is its energetic battery; the farther away it is from the physical body, the better it recharges the energy. When the Psychosoma returns, it revitalizes the physical body.

You might ask yourself, “What is the source of energy?”

Where is the energy?

The energy of the universe – also called the “Immanent Energy” – is the source of the energy of the Psychosoma. It is a neutral, unprocessed energy that is absorbed and transferred to the physical body by the Psychosoma.

  1. "Split mind"

    Some projectors claim that the consciousness makes a copy of itself at the time of projection, so that the original consciousness stays with the physical body and the copy follows te psychosoma into other dimensions.

    Couldn't it rather be that the projector simply has the ability to sense (identify) the physical body AND the projected psychosoma at the same time?

    Does anyone have experiences with that?

  2. Consciousness cannot copy him/herself, but can make copies (simulacra) of his/her energosoma. Consciousness is always inside the mentalsoma. The mentalsoma can be isolated (mentalsoma projection), within the psychosoma (psychosoma projection) or within the physical body and attached to the psychosoma (ordinary physical waking state). Therefore, I agree with your second question, which explains the first one well. I think that this experience is relatively common. For example, when a person is projected in its psychosoma and thinks that he or she is inside the body and hears their own breathing or snoring. Normally, in that situation, the person thinks that the noise is coming from someone else.

    There is also the concept of double consciousness, which usually occurs when the person is taking off from or returning to their body. For a few brief seconds during those transitional moments, the person can sometimes have the experience of seeming to perceive reality from both places at the same time. This appears to a function of instability during the transition to and from the projected state, however, rather than being evidence for any actual splitting of the consciousness. That is, when taking off the consciousness may take a few seconds to stabilize fully within the psychosoma only and, likewise on the return, the consciousness may start to re-enter the physical body while the psychosoma is still largely projected.
