Is Astral Projection really really dangerous?

Some people say its extremely dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. I don’t see how it is, since you can never die just from dreaming, after all that’s what it is.

  1. That is ok if you are dreaming about it, but people who speak of Astral Projection do not define is as something you just dream. In that sense, seeing it as an evoked spiritual experience, if you can’t manage it you can be in great trouble.

  2. While “away,” you could stop breathing, and instead of waking normally when one stops breathing while asleep, you could stay asleep and not wake up and consequently die. So you should have a watcher with you when traveling.

  3. Nope. It’s perfectly safe. I know this because, since it isn’t actually possible it’s not likely to bring any harm upon you.

  4. It resembles a dream in every way and the perception of this experience is deeply influenced by the subconscious mind. Not the unconscious. There is no unconscious. Just like there is no unlight, no unparticle, unenergy, or unexistence. But there is an UnCola.
    Jung’s work on the unconscious is widely excepted as scientific fact. I’m not sure you understand what it really is, rather you are just thinking in a very simple framework pertaining to the term “un”.
    There may indeed exist “unparticles” as you put it.
    While still not proven (soon to be by LHC @ CERN) supersymmetry is a symmetry that relates elementary particles of one spin to another “shadow” particle that differs by half a unit of spin and are known as superpartners. In other words, in a supersymmetric theory, for every type of boson there exists a corresponding type of shadow fermion, and Viceversa. I think these shadow particles are now dubbed “sparticles”.
    There is also a theoretical particle with negative mass called a tachyon.
    For quite some time I too did not accepted psychology as a science.
    Yet once you do, you logically have to include Jung.
    His models do work. And models are all we have – even in physics.
    Jung is the founder of Analytical Psychology which is the foundation for how we have come to understand how we function. Our understanding of extroversion and introversion and the four functions of the psyche are prerequisites to understanding human behavior. The Myers-Briggs Typology Indicator (MBTI) was inspired by Jung’s models.
    No, astral projection isn’t dangerous~
    Everyone does it every night, but, aren’t conscious of it.
    It’s a matter of graininess.
    At one time, people believed that everything in the world consisted of fire, water, earth and air (or something similar).
    On the face of it, this is not incorrect, it’s just a very broad generalization. As our measurements got more precise, and bodies of knowledge grew, understanding became more complex.
    The same is true with Jung and Freud. They were pioneers in psychology, there is no doubt about that, but we are moving beyond their models rapidly.
    I like Antonio Dimassio, he is incredibly insightful. Especially his book, “Descartes’ Error.” I’ve heard “Looking for Spinoza” is good too, but haven’t gotten around to reading it.
    I’d also check out Ken Wilber.
