OK that’s great but what is AstroProjection? Well according to the encyclopedia it is an esoteric interpretation of any form of out-of-body experience (OOBE) that assumes the existence of an "Astral body" separate from the physical body and able to Travel outside of the physical body. Astral Projection Astral Travel symbolizes the Astral body leaving the physical body to Travel in the Astral plane.
In some religions this is spiritual practice that can involve Travel to higher levels of consciousness called Astral planes. This is commonly described as any sense of one’s Astral body Traveling outside of their physical body to obtain a higher spiritual learning.
Now let us take a look at some of the history of Astral Travel and beliefs of some of the people that practices it.
According to classical, medieval, renaissance Neo-Platonist, later Theosophist and Rosicrucian philosophy, the Astral body is an intermediate body of light that links the soul to the physical body, and the Astral plane is an intermediate world of light amid Heaven and Earth composed of the spheres of the planets and stars. These Astral spheres were held to be occupied by angels, demons and spirits.
There are comparable concepts of "soul" Travel ancient Egypt and a variety of other religious traditions, for example ancient Egyptian teachings shows the soul as having the ability to hover outside the physical body in the ka, or subtle body. A widespread belief is that the subtle body is attached to the physical body by the means of a psychic silver cord.
Even Christian religions recognize Astral Projection, but it is a prohibited practice for Roman Catholics because the soul; holds all reason, thought, memories, emotion, attitudes, and beliefs; leaves the physical body during the dreaming state and becomes agnostic indifferent toward The Holy Trinity and is left with no protection.
A human soul, when detached from the physical body, during a dreaming state, is without the protection of Jesus Christ, and very vulnerable to molestation by evil demons.
Well don’t that beat all, I would of thought that the sold unencumbered by the physical man (the physical body) would have been impervious to evil, and sins of the physical man. Well that is a subject for whole different discussion.
As you can see the idea of Astral Projection has been around a long time and it is still alive today. Many eastern as well as new age religions practices meditation and have reported having Out Of Body Experiences (OOBE).
Hey this sounds great I would like to get out of my physical body sometimes maybe I would get some relief from my rheumatism. All joking aside many physics, and eastern as well as new age spiritualist believe that Astral Travel can help you obtain enlightenment or a higher spiritual awareness and we could all use a little help in that department. But the question still remains is Astral Travel real or just another form of lucid dreaming.
During a lucid dream you have the sensation of being out of your body not unlike an Out of Body Experience, you can fly, Traveling to other plants. You can do just about anything you want. So is there any difference between Astral Projection and lucid dreaming? Many people, even Astral Travelers, say that there is no difference between the two; while others are of the opinion that they are two unique experiences
The reason they are different is that with Astral Travel you get into the Astral Plane direct out your physical body. When you have a Lucid Dream, you have merely 'missed' the initial Projection.
Astral Travelers, say the difference arises typically because of the framework you are entering from. If you project from the waking state, you may encounter some difficulties because of restrictive thoughts carried with you which don't apply to the Astral realm, and require some practice to adjust to the new environment. On the other hand, in a Lucid Dream, having accustomed to the expansiveness of the dream state, you can sometimes have the opposite problem, finding it hard to retain a conscious focus, and thus 'losing lucidity'. With practice of course, both of these will be overcome.
In conclusion if you ever had a lucid dream you recognize that the experience is not unlike that described as Astral Travel and in reality lucid dreaming might be an undeveloped form of Astral Travel and all you require is a little discipline and some focus and you too can be an Astral Traveler.

I had a strong suicidal tendency after I suffered a tragic car accident when I was 15 years old and the friend who was next to me in the car died instantly. When I was 23 years old and I was pregnant, my 18 year old cousin and my mother in law died in the same week, and after that I became so depressed, insecure and nervous that I started studying the meaning of dreams looking for psychotherapy.
Fortunately I found the solution by learning how to translate my dreams according to the scientific method of dream interpretation discovered by Carl Jung, because my suicidal tendency became even stronger then.
I continued Jung's research and even though I didn't imagine I could learn so much, after deciphering the meaning of many dream symbols that he could not explain, I understood the dream messages much better than him, and it was then that my difficult mission began.
I discovered the wild side of the human brain that provokes craziness to our human conscience. Craziness is what pushes the human being towards committing suicide.
A person who can logically think and who has human sensitivity will never commit suicide, because when you commit suicide you kill all the people that care for you and you spread your despair to the entire of humanity. You ruin everything… This is a very cruel action, not only against yourself but against your family, your friends and your community.
If you commit suicide you reveal to us that you despise everyone, you don't care about anything… You simply abandon everyone that depends on you, because you are a coward who cannot solve the problems of your life.
Since I became an expert on dream interpretation according to the scientific method I started curing many people that lived near me, entirely free of charge, offering them human support as a nun. They were desperate people that had many suicidal thoughts.
I even helped the husband of a woman who committed suicide, because her brother was my patient. Her brother and his son were abandoned by his wife, who left with another man. I knew her brother because his mother had a store near mine, so I started helping him overcome his depression and anger after being betrayed, translating his dreams. He was the weak one of the family, while his sister seemed to be very strong.
Translating her husband's dreams, which were all about her, I could understand what had happened to her and why she came to the point of committing suicide. The process is always the same.
Here are the basic steps that lead someone to come to the point of committing suicide:
- First of all they suffer in their lives as victims of other people's cruelty.
- Then the anti-conscience, their wild and evil, primitive conscience, starts sending them many absurd ideas and feelings, taking advantage of their revolt because they were injured by others.
- As they follow the absurd suggestions of the anti-conscience they make many mistakes in life, and in the end they see themselves imprisoned in a labyrinth of problems that have no solution.
- The anti-conscience starts then sending them many suicidal thoughts, besides depression and fear.
- They completely lose their human conscience, which was destroyed by the absurdity that invaded it. They cannot control their behavior anymore, which means that their primitive side dominates them completely, and they are not responsible for their actions. This is when they commit suicide, without caring about anyone or anything.
I'm glad because you cared about something, since you were looking for ways to commit suicide, and you haven't committed it yet. If you were already totally crazy, you would simply have jumped from the top floor of your building like this woman did, while indifferently passed near her baby who was in the living room to go to the terrace, and jump.
If you don't have the courage to commit suicide, this is a very good sign. This means that your human conscience is still alive, and you still have human feelings. You can understand what your suicidal attempt would mean to everyone…
Don't do that. Never commit suicide. Read my articles, which provide you free psychotherapy, and learn how to understand the free psychotherapy of the unconscious mind in your own dreams with my lessons.
Here you see how Dream Interpretation can help you understand and overcome even the most Difficult problems in you life. While Dream Interpretation is not a replacement for professional philological help it is a way to better understand the problems in your life.

Dream recall is simply the capability of remembering your dreams. Good dream recall is frequently described as the first step towards lucid dreaming. Improved recall increases awareness of dreams in general; with limited dream recall, any lucid dreams you have can be forgotten completely.To improve dream recall, most people keep a dream journal, writing down any dreams remembered as soon as the dreamer awakens. The purchases of a digital audio recorder can also be very helpful. This will allow the dreamer to record their dreams as quickly as possible as there is a strong tendency to forget what one has dreamed. For best recall, the waking dreamer should keep eyes closed while trying to remember their dream. Describing your dream as if you are still in it can help the writer to recall the events of their dream more accurately Dream recall can also be improved by remaining still after waking up. This may have something to do with REM atonia (the condition of REM sleep in which the motor neurons are not stimulated and thus the body's muscles do not move). Likewise, the dreamer may be able to recall certain events of their dream by testing different sleeping positions. Another easy technique to help improve dream recall is to repeat to yourself (in thoughts or out loud) "I will remember my dreams," before falling asleep.

Below are some dreams of people who describe their lucid dreams. These lucid dreams are from a book called Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. & Howard Rheingold.
Case Examples of Lucid Dreams
1. I realized I was dreaming. I raised my arms and began to rise (actually I was being lifted). I rose through the black sky that blended into indigo, to deep purple, to lavender, to white, then to very bright light. All the time I was lifted there was the most beautiful music I have ever heard. It seemed like voices rather than instruments. There are no words to describe the joy I felt. I was very gently lowered back to earth. I had the feeling that I had come to a turning point in my life and I had chosen the right path. The dream, the joy I experienced, was kind of a reward, or so I felt. It was a long, slow slide back to wakefulness with music echoing in my ears. The euphoria lasted several days; the memory forever. (A.F., Bay City, Michigan).
2. I was standing in a field in an open area when my wife pointed in the direction of the sunset. I looked at it and thought, "How odd; I've never seen colors like that before." Then it dawned on me: "I must be dreaming!" Never had I experienced such clarity and perception - the colors were so beautiful and the sense of freedom so exhilarating that I started racing through this beautiful golden wheat field waving my hands in the air and yelling at the top of my voice, "I'm dreaming! I'm dreaming!" Suddenly, I started to lose the dream; it must have been the excitement. I instantly woke up. As it dawned on me what had just happened, I woke up my wife and said, "I did it! I did it!" I was conscious within the dream state and I'll never be the same. Funny, isn't it? How a taste of it can affect one like that. It's the freedom, I guess; we see that we are truly in control of our own universe. (D.W., Elk River, Minnesota).
3. One night I was dreaming of standing on a gentle hill, looking out over the tops of maples, alders, and other trees. The leaves of the maples were bright red and rustling in the wind. The grass at my feet was lush and vividly green. All the colors about me were more saturated than I have ever seen.
Perhaps the awareness that the colors were "brighter than they should be" shocked me into realizing that I was in a dream, and that what lay about me was not "real." I remember saying to myself, "If this was a dream, "I should be able to fly in the air." I tested my hunch and was enormously pleased that I could effortlessly, and fly anywhere I wanted. I skimmed over the tops of the trees and sailed many miles over new territory. I flew upward, far above the landscape, and hovered in the air currents like an eagle.
When I awoke I felt as if the experience of flying had energized me. I felt a sense of well-being that seemed directly related to the experience of being in a lucid dream, of taking control of the flying. (J.B., Everett, Washington).
As you can see from the above, lucid dreams can offer the dreamer more fun than he or she usually has when entering a normal dream state. How many dreams have you had when you woke up and gone through the day totally unaware of what dreams you have had? To me, and to many others, it would be interesting to see what types of dreams we have in the moment of dreaming and remembering with vivid clarity, what we've dreamt the night before.

- A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes that he or she is dreaming.
- A wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state with no apparent lapse in consciousness.
- A mnemonic-initiated lucid dream (MILD) can happen when the dreamer intentionally affirms to himself or herself that he or she will become lucid during the upcoming sleep. Reaching lucidity can sometimes occur due to dream-signs or spontaneously upon remembrance.
I know that many of you would like to learn more about lucid dreaming so in the up and coming weeks we will be posting new articles concerning this fascinating dream mode. I hope that that you will find this new information informative and that you will keep returning for the latest updates.
If you want to learn about the meaning of dreams then you need to start with the basics. There are plenty of places that you can look up the rules of interpreting dreams, but in this article we'll be looking at a few of the more common types of dreams that people have and what they could potentially mean. While there are an infinite amount of possible dreams there are usually a relatively small amount of different parts that make up these dreams so basic dream interpretation starts with learning the fundamentals.
Dreams about teeth are a very common type and are often recurring. Most of the teeth dreams that people have are to do with the teeth falling out or just crumbling away to nothing which can be a distressing experience, but what does it mean? There isn't just one meaning, but some people believe it is showing that a person is unhappy with their personal appearance and what other people think of you . Another interpretation is that the teeth might be a fear of being embarrassed In other words this dream might be caused by being anxious about something.
While not as common as teeth dreams, naked dreams still affect a lot of people. Often the dreamer is in a place such as work or on a street and going about their everyday business only to suddenly realize that they are completely naked. This is often interpreted being because the dreamer feels vulnerable or ashamed of something they have done. This is because in the dream the clothes act as a sort of barrier behind which you can hide behind, but when you are feeling vulnerable the clothes disappear. A naked dream might also mean that you are being caught out unexpectedly.
these are one of the more enjoyable dreams to have and can be an amazing experience. Flying dreams are part of a section of dreams called lucid dreams that happen when you know that you are dreaming but are still asleep. Usually a flying dream is interpreted as the dreamer knowing that they are able to cope with the situation that they are in at the moment and feeling good about things. It is also sometimes interpreted as gaining a new perspective on something.
When you lucid dream you are basically dreaming, but are aware that you are dreaming. When you are having a lucid dream, it is not unusual to have some power over the dream. Just about anything from being able to fly or making objects or people appears to fly. It is as if you are able to be the director of your own movie. Lucid dreams have been proven to exist, and there are many books and articles you can find about having lucid dreams.
As you can see, there are usually many different interpretations of a dream and which one is correct comes down to the person, the dream itself and also the situation that the person is currently in. Basic dream interpretation starts with being able to identify the important features of a dream.
