Have you ever had a dream so vivid, that you could remember the colours, the sounds, the conversations, objects and landscapes in astonishing detail?
Perhaps you awoke confused and disoriented about whether you were awake in reality or still asleep in the dream?
Do you ever find yourself drifting just on the edge of neither being fully awake nor falling completely asleep and suddenly you are startled awake and aware by your whole body seemingly jumping or experiencing an unconscious jolting back Into awareness?
Some say, that sudden jolt is your soul attempting to separate itself from your body to travel and explore other planes… other worlds… places we would otherwise never know existed in our woken state.
Have you ever heard of Astral Projection?
“Astral projection (or astral travel), is a term used in esotericism to describe an intentional out-of-body experience that assumes the existence of a soul called an “astral body” that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe.”
“The expression “astral projection” came to be used in two different ways. For the Golden Dawn and some Theosophists it retained the classical and medieval philosophers’ meaning of journeying to other worlds, heavens, hells, the astrological spheres and other imaginal landscapes, but outside these circles the term was increasingly applied to non-physical travel around the physical world.“
“Though this usage continues to be widespread, the term, “etheric travel”, used by some later Theosophists, offers a useful distinction. Some experients say they visit different times and/or places: “etheric”, then, is used to represent the sense of being “out of the body” in the physical world, whereas “astral” may connote some alteration in time-perception. Robert Monroe describes the former type of projection as “Locale I” or the “Here-Now”, involving people and places that actually exist: Robert Bruce calls it the “Real Time Zone” (RTZ) and describes it as the non-physical dimension-level closest to the physical. This etheric body is usually, though not always, invisible but is often perceived by the experient as connected to the physical body during separation by a “silver cord”. Some link “falling” dreams with projection.”
“According to Max Heindel, the etheric “double” serves as a medium between the astral and physical realms. In his system the ether, also called prana, is the “vital force” that empowers the physical forms to change. From his descriptions it can be inferred that, to him, when one views the physical during an out-of-body experience, one is not technically “in” the astral realm at all.“
“Other experiments may describe a domain that has no parallel to any known physical setting. Environments may be populated or unpopulated, artificial, natural or abstract, and the experience may be beatific, horrific or neutral. A common Theosophical belief is that one may access a compendium of mystical knowledge called the Akashic records. In many accounts the experiencer correlates the astral world with the world of dreams. Some even report seeing other dreamers enacting dream scenarios unaware of their wider environment.“
“The astral environment may also be divided into levels or sub-planes by theorists, but there are many different views in various traditions concerning the overall structure of the astral planes: they may include heavens and hells and other after-death spheres, transcendent environments, or other less-easily characterized states.”
At the Haven we are both extremely intrigued and impossibly undecided about our own etheric and astral travel. However, we can definitely sum up everything above on the subject in one word: Fascinating!
Therefore, we invite you to join us as we explore the possibilities of astral travel— could it be that the vivid dreams we have been having can be explained by our actual presence among other worldly planes?!
