Definition. Fragmented projection: that projection which is produced through the gradual exteriorization, part by part, of each one of the specific areas of the humanoid form of one's own psychosoma (non-physical body).
Synonymy: Partial disconnection or discoincidence (non-alignment); parceled unfolding; partial unfolding; semi-unfastening; fractional projection; incipient projection; parceled projection; partial projection; peripheral projection; segmented projection; semi-unfolding; semi-unfastening; semi-projection.
Types. The semi-projection of a counterpart of one's human body can be of an arm, leg, arms and legs at the same time, trunk and head and, more rarely, the head (para-head) only. Shortly after a complete projection this, as well as other phenomena, can occur, including: extraphysical elongation and sudden interiorization with possible physical repercussion.
Third. A partial projection can give the intraphysical consciousness (physical person) the sensation of possessing a third hand (para-hand); a third arm (para-arm); a third leg (para-leg); or four arms; etc.
Lucidity. A semi-projection can be conscious or, rather, provoked through a decided act of will, and unconscious, when occurring spontaneously. The veteran projector can almost always clearly perceive or later identify the spontaneous unconscious projection.
Mini-cord. The principal driving agent of the semi-projection is the silver cord. This suggests that the departure of this energetic appendage of the human body can also occur for diverse areas or segments, thus providing a mini-silver cord for an arm. leg, etc.
Technique. After you complete the preliminary pre-projective steps, especially those of physical and mental self-relaxation, close your eyelids and concentrate your attention on a segment or part of your human body: your left leg, for example. When you think of your left leg, wish decisively that the extraphysical left leg quickly leave upwardly from its coincidence with the vehicles of manifestation.
Right. Concentrate on your left extraphysical leg until you feel that it has dislocated upwards. Next, concentrate on your right extraphysical leg. wishing to move it out of coincidence with the vehicles as well.
Body. Little by little, go over the whole body in this manner, decisively wishing that the extraphysical segments quickly leave the state of coincidence with their physical counterparts, under your willful command.
Persistence. Do not try to speed up the process. Use patience and persistence. This can require various attempts before you obtain the disconnection of the first segment. If you are successful with fractionated projection you are ready to project your consciousness utilizing the entire psychosoma in the extraphysical plane.
Head. The semi-projection of only the head of the psychosoma presents characteristic signals, especially of a mental nature, which allow one to clearly distinguish the psychosomal projection from a projection utilizing the mentalsoma. For a great number of projectors, the extraphysical head of the psychosoma (para-head) is the ultimate part to leave the coincidence of the vehicles.
Mediums. Developed mediums present the greatest predisposition toward semiprojections, possibly due to the looseness of the holochakra (energetic body) and the natural predisposition to the percussive signals of projectability including physical torpidity/numbness, alienation, disappearance, ballooning, dizziness, etc.
Intoxication. Sometimes, semi-dislocation occurs spontaneously due to natural energetic obstruction, or energetic clogging of an organic area, in the abdominal area when, for example, the umbilicochakra and splenochakra become blocked through the intoxicating effects of intestinal constipation.
Seated. The partial conscious projection, semi-projection, or hemi-projection (half of the physical body) of only the para-arms, trunk from the waist up, and para-head outward from the physical body constitutes a seated consciential projection. Not rarely, this extraphysical position imposes the immediate return of the consciousness to the condition of complete recoincidence (reconnection) with the vehicles of manifestation.
Psychopathology. Besides the partial projection, which constitutes a normal and frequent paraphysiological phenomenon in the experiences of veteran lucid consciousness projectors, there is also the occurrence of hallucinations, as in the case of phantom arms, extra, or supernumerary (as it is referred to in Psychopathology), occurring more frequently with epileptic or migraine patients. This occurrence is very different than the partial projection.
Notice. Semi-projection, which represents the partial exteriorization of the psychosoma, should not be confused with semiconscious projection, which is based on the discontinuity in the lucidity of the projected consciousness. Nor should it be confused with the condition of waking discoincidence (non-alignment)
Extraphysical: non-physical. Usually referred to as “astral”.
Psychosoma: non-physical or extraphysical body (aka: astral body)
Mentalsoma: mental body
Interiorization: return to the physical body
