I saw it in the movie Insidious. But, it really got me thinking.
I mean, the theory sounds kinda legit. One could probably really get lost when they are experiencing an OBE.
I’ve wanted to know more about it for a long time, just was never sure what to ask or who.
So, is astral projection dangerous?
Are you really on another realm? What’s it called?
And can you get lost there?
You can’t get stuck thats what your silver cord is for
I can lucid dream, I have been practicing for about 5-6 months now, And i almost have it down pat, Although they are similar (OBE’s and Lucid dreams)
I found it virtually impossible to get lost,
Because if anything bugged you, Frightened you, or you didnt believe was real, Sucked you right back in your body.
It is a quite amazing thing to do,
It is endless what you can do, Although it does take ALOT of practice and you cant do it always,
The possibilities are endless. And the saying ‘Anything is possible’ is actually true.
Whether itd be to shapeshift, Fly, Be the king of the world. This can all happen.
The minute you believe you cant fly, Bang dream over.
Your mind has to be set free, And to have it opened up to any possibilities.
In my recent Lucid dreams and OBEs.
AVOID MIRRORS at all costs.
It can turn into a distorted figure and frighten you, You can be stuck in your dream getting tormented. For as long as your brain can handle usually 3 seconds in real life. 10 minites in dream time.
Just learn to change it into something.
Like my face and body had a demon standing becide me with a knife. i quickly believed The demon in the mirror was my best friend and Bam all happy again.
Sorry about the story, I just find lucid dreams alot easier
A sleeping body would have to be moved without waking and placed in a location unknown to the sleeper.
Actually that would be pretty funny. Playing a trick on a boob that doesn’t know a dream when they have one.
**So, is astral projection dangerous?
-Astral projection is not dangerous at all. Humans naturally astral project every night, which are also called dreams. However, on the astral plane, there are places you should avoid. Just as in this world there are places you should avoid. You will know when you are in the wrong place because you will literally feel it.
But I promise you that you won’t come across these negative places when you first learn to astral project. You will be safe 🙂
**Are you really on another realm? What’s it called?
-There are many other realms. As stated in the Quran and Bible there are 7 planes.
Physical (we are here now), Astral, Mental, Buddhic, Atman, Anupadaka, and Adi…. then the source (God).
Each plane is harder to get to and requires more ability to concentrate. Spirituality is also a factor.
**And can you get lost there?
-No, it isn’t possible to get lost. All you need to do is think of a place you are familiar with, ask for guidance, or think of your own body. You will be back safe.
Many people believe astral projection is dangerous due to the fact that your astral body (and essentially, soul) is vulnerable to be a host for demonic entities that might be around in the astral relm.
When you leave your body and astral travel, you can go as far as your front yard to Mars, apparently. The place you go doesn’t really have a certain name. It’s just, anywhere, everywhere and beyond pretty much. Some call it the “astral relm”.
There have been instances where people got lost, and it took them a while to get back to their body, but you can not go into a coma or die. You are connected by a silver cord to your body, that cord will only break when you die, not when you have an OBE. It would take a heart attack or something for that to happen, which is extremely unlikely. The worst that could occur is a headache due to lack of oxygen, because the heart rate and breathing slows down a bit when your body is in an astral traveling state.
It only takes a thought to get back to your body. This video explains the whole thing very well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmIJ9LD7yE8
Hope that helps! 🙂
I can answer these for you since I had many experiences with this…..
It’s not normally dangerous, because your spirit is in charge and knows what to do, and when to come back into your body. Although it is the closes thing perhaps to death, it’s basically the same thing that happens to your spirit in a sense when you died. It’s can become dangerous only for those whom try and control where their spirits goes and staying out of the body to long, I do know of one person that died, the book writer from the 15th Century Thomas Kempis a priest whom wrote the book imitation of Christ. He was known for astral traveling and coming back into his body, he say he wants to try an go to heaven to visit and come back. Well he was out of his body to long, and when the people found him, they thought he was dead, so they buried him alive, thinking he was dead. Then they heard of this astral travel- out of body that he does, and they dug his body back up to find out that he did come back into his body, but they didn’t dig him up fast enough and he died in his box. Because his hands were in the praying position, and when they dug him back up, they found one of his hands in his mouth…..because when he came back into his body he perhaps didn’t know where he was because it was dark in the box, he perhaps thought he was dead, and he put his hand in his mouth to bite to see if this was true to see if he had feelings.
This is a true story that I heard from a priest I know.
Your spirit when it does travel will take excursions on it’s own and come back, but if you can control it, you may be out of body as long as three days, why in some countries they believe in this and will not bury you until three or four days later. Not many people have enough experiences to know enough how to control where they travel to.
So basically it’s not dangerous….I have astral traveled once and met a spirit woman, and at the time I didn’t know who she was and why we hugged one another. But now I do know who she is and her name, since she came to me and made herself known, We knew one another from a past life. Anyways it’s a long story, and she came many times to me, in and out of body. I had to astral project one night because the demon spirit came back, and I astral projected and went after him, my spirit knew what to do, I grabbed, threw and held him to the floor, and call out for help, and the spirit woman named Erica came to my aid and helped me to get rid of him, and he never did come back to harass me and my son.
I am always very aware when out of my body almost the same as when I am in my body, for me it happens when I am asleep, and in the few ways that it can happen to people, in those ways that it happens is always when your breathing slows down in return slows down your heart rate, and releases your spirit. That happen to me one time and many spirits came for me, perhaps I did die for a few seconds because they came to guide me thinking I was dead, but I went back into my body and came back…..there is a few more stages of astral projection than people know about, I have experienced these different stages.
Hope this helps:)
I’ve seen that and wondered the same thing, so I looked it up. You cannot get lost while in an OBE, one website said that there is a connection from your spirit to your actual body…a connection almost like a silver power cord that keeps you tied to your body. And no it is not dangerous. When in an OBE, you can visit any time period, era, destination or another dimension if you wanted to. Always you can always go back to your body, its YOUR body. Yes astral projection is real, but the drama in the movie Insidious is just writing. No, you cant get lost…it just made for a good movie. So there is nothing to fear. My mother is a psychic and told me she wouldnt let me do OBEs if they were dangerous. But she lets me.
