When someone who has learned something in particular and is trying to help others experience that particular something, it helps to point out all the obstacles, pitfalls, mistakes, and just about anything else that might stand in the way of success. Astral Projection is that particular something that we will discuss, as well as those things that deprive others of experiencing the Astral Plane.
Little known things like Pepper, which can keep you rooted in the body, can actually prevent someone from Astral Projecting. Even those who are experienced in astral projection and can do so at will may not be aware of some of these practical but unnecessary limits.
These limitations are just everyday things that in themselves are not bad at all. Knowledge is the key.”in knowledge“They can be used to your advantage. Many are known to impede access to the inner planes, while others can be more obscure. That’s all the more reason to collect them all here to serve as a resource of references to talk about.
After all, astral projection is quite difficult. Knowing what things to avoid will save us all our hard work.
So here are the ten things to avoid when trying astral projection.
number one and probably the most important is FEAR, as the bible says “Fear is failure and the forerunner of failure, therefore courage is a virtue”. & “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.” If you have any fear, even those that you are not aware of, they will prevent you from leaving your body. Fear is the root of most evils with which man finds trouble.
so number two which is very important to know and equally challenging, Magnetism. There are electromagnetic currents and energy fields everywhere. In fact, if you are in or near a large city, the chances of finding a place without an electromagnetic energy field are high. Telephone cables and power lines expel a large amount of current.
This is also another reason why serious students are led to stay as far away from the thoughts of man as possible. Far in the desert or desert, mountains that have you. Places like these are often the cleanest and most suitable environment for homework.
These are heavy in nature and can have the effect of keeping it where it is and leaving no trace as to why. Although if one is creative and skilled, these ‘currents‘of energy can be harnessed and/or used to great advantage. The important thing is to learn about them and find their direction and measure of power.
Number Three it is food and drink. There are certain foods that are not desirable for astral travel and others that are. It is up to the individual to learn their own astral allergies, so to speak. Everyone is unique in this, however, there are some standards that work pretty well for most people.
Things like pepper, spices, hot sauces, spicy foods, and peppers tend to connect the spirit to the body. Alcohol is known to be (to quote an obscure old guru) “the mestruum for the astral plane” and should not be drunk for at least a month beforehand.
number four not preparing properly. In short, avoid being careless. A bad job can have terrible consequences. This should be taken literally as well as figuratively. In both directions and in all directions. You should be in good health, have had adequate sleep, rest, exercise, be well fed with healthy foods.
Mentally clean and organized, with all stress-related issues reduced as much as possible. It should be understood that the direction in which you sleep is also important. It wouldn’t hurt to have kept a good journal or dream journal as a means of keeping your dreams in order.
Number five It may sound strange, but it is true that unreliable expectations can prevent a real astral projection. Listening too much to what other people tell you about what you will experience can and often will deny you any real experience.
Get away from all Image and Facade of society. An evil in which the world spends too much time is Vanity. It will do you good not to flatter your mind so much as to dilute the observance of the truth because of your pride.
So there you have it. It was a bit longer than anticipated, but these are five of the ten things to avoid when attempting astral projection.
