We sometimes observe that some people believe that the study of Projectiology only refers to out-of-body experiences or astral projections (also known as astral travel). Nevertheless, the reality is that there are a series of phenomena which are related to the out-of-body experience which are also areas of study in Projectiology.
The reason for giving more priority to the study of conscious projections is the importance that it holds. Of all the paranormal phenomena, the out-of-body experience is the most advanced and the one which allows for more personal growth, justifying all the time invested in its investigation. Nevertheless, the other events are also interesting and have many positive consequences. When we train ourselves to control and extend our projections, we are automatically developing the capacity to perceive and manage these other phenomena, which are derived, in one way or another, from the projections. Let us cite some of these phenomena of subjective character, starting with clairvoyance.
Clairvoyance: It is the visual perception an individual captures from a more subtle reality than the physical dimension. A person with developed clairvoyance has the capacity to see persons, situations or objects which are not of the physical nature. The most common types of clairvoyant activities are: when a person sees, on a normal day, while totally awake, consciousnesses which have passed through the physical death; when one sees energies or auras around a certain person or object; or when extraphysical images are perceived while falling asleep.
Clairaudience: This phenomenon occurs when an individual has the capacity to hear sounds pertinent to other dimensions. They sometimes hear someone in moments of silence and tranquility, or sometimes noises are heard which are not physical. It can be possible for someone to hear their own extraphysical helper when getting ready for sleep.
Waking state nonalignment: There is a sensation when we are slightly detached from the physical body which is characterized by a temporary loss of concentration on the physical universe, slowed reflexes, the person sometimes feels as if walking on clouds, and others. This state is called waking state nonalignment. Many times, people perceive this as soon as they wake up in the morning, but they are not totally attached to their physical body. This is a state which can be controlled and it is common among conscious projectors.
Cosmic consciousness: This is a state of expansion of the consciousness, where there is an increase in lucidity beyond the normal for the individual. One feels connected with the whole universe in a state of deep peace. This has been studied at length throughout history and has been called many things such as samadhi, satori, nirvana, ecstasy, cosmoconsciousness, illumination, and others.
Projective catalepsy: This is a common phenomenon which occurs while one is leaving or returning to the physical body during sleep. The most common description is the feeling of paralysis, without the ability to move, even while awake. This is a benign and natural phenomenon which could be taken advantage of in order to leave the body.
Intuition: It is the ability characterized by the capture of ideas without the normal process of rational thought. The most important thing about intuition is for one to maintain discernment in order to judge the level of information received. The most advantageous type of intuition is the one we have outside our physical body, since in this condition, we are able to absorb more advanced, subtle, and positive ideas.
Psychometry: This phenomenon has been studied extensively by scientists from many different countries. Psychometry is the capacity, which more sensitive human beings possess, that enables them to read a record of information which is implanted in an object through the energies that this object has. For example, a person with sufficient psychometric powers can take an object, such as a watch from some unknown person, and start to describe the owner of the watch, only through the contact of the physical object.
Retrocognition: This is the capacity one has of recuperating one’s integral memory, the memories of past lives and the periods between lives. We will not go into detail here, since we have a whole chapter dedicated to explaining this phenomenon which is of interests to so many these days.
Precognition: This is the condition in which the individual has an insight into situations which are about to happen in the future. There are dreams which are precognitary; in other words, during the dream, the person has a vision of something that will happen. This could also occur while one is awake, and more importantly, it occurs in a more advanced state when one is outside the physical body. It is important to clarify that nothing is 100% established. Everything can be changed. The situation is that some things have a larger probability of happening, while others are less probable and in consequence, easier to change.
Déjà vu: A very common phenomenon. déjà vu, or already seen, is when a person goes to a place, for example, for the first time and has the certainty, a while later, of knowing it or of having been there before. This phenomenon occurs primarily due to conscious projections or out-of-body experiences which the person had, but does not remember. Many times one sees things out of the body and only remembers them when physically seen later on. Nevertheless, there is a type of mental stress that gives the person the impression of having lived through certain situations that occur. It is important to clarify that the phenomenon of déjà vu has nothing to do with these cases of stress. The real déjà vu is a different type of perception from this last one and it is less common.
The most important and interesting thing to observe is that these perceptions, when they are well understood, bring the person a sense of wisdom greater than usual, along with a sensation of confidence and well-being. The person will utilize much more what is called the sixth sense. Everything should happen in a tranquil and controlled manner, with the individual in plain control of his lucidity and mental clarity.
If someone has perceptions of this type and does not know how to control them – feeling anger towards them – the person should definitely inform itself with the proper information, in order to be more knowledgeable on the topic and be at equilibrium with its extrasensory perceptions.
