The universe, beautifully vast beyond our limited comprehension, has placed us squarely in a physical reality that is just as sublime. Over the past 200 years, the massive growth in the discoveries of science, overflowing our minds with information, has ultimately forced upon all of humanity a new state of being. For many of us, this new consensus reality is one where the mysteries of life are reaffirmed. It’s become hard to believe any person or scientist, given the overwhelming presence of so much verifiable evidence, could possibly deny that we consciously live within the context of a larger multidimensional reality than cannot be fully understood. The intuitive truth and profound implications of this statement would seem to be self-evident. Our intuition in this matter cannot be easily overruled because the conclusions of almost all scientific investigations are universal; the more we come to know, the more we realize what we don’t know. Apparently, the mystery of life continues to thrive.
By incorporating the inherent mystery of existence into a “new state of being”, we should undoubtedly be aware of and act on much more than we do. It’s undeniable that increasing population has produced more evidence that planet Earth is susceptible to our presence, feeling quite fragile. Why shouldn’t we always act responsibly to uphold the Earth that sustains us by respecting her and all life? Also, if we acknowledge that we live in a larger reality that includes a universe teaming with life, why shouldn’t we be able to connect and communicate with other beings out there?
Of course, these concepts are not anything new. With very few exceptions, native people have been trying to get rest of the world to adopt this wisdom for a LONG TIME. We can at least appreciate that through this unwavering effort we have all been blessed by The Great Creator spirit. Also, among the valued teachings brought to us by all native peoples is the paramount importance of embracing the presence of spirit, which is everywhere and in everything. Having a connection to spirit would seem to be essential in being able to connect and communicate with the multitude of universal beings in the cosmos. Keeping this principle in mind, that you always stand in the light of spirit, will aid you in learning useful methods for connecting with the other beings in the universe.
What follows is an example of my own methods used to connect with spirit and subsequently to other beings in the universe. Please consider that you can utilize whatever techniques you want, reshaping them with your own ideas, forging a unique path. What I present here is only one example of how to approach venturing into the non-physical. Please consider that you should conduct all non-physical activities with great respect and responsibility for yourself and all other life forms, human in origin or not. Later in this discussion, I will list a few guiding principles for behavior in the non-physical. Please read through this article completely before trying any techniques presented.
To initiate an excursion into the non-physical, I always begin by defining my mission. Sometimes, I go out for myself or others to gather information, ask questions, seek answers, etc. Other times, I’m working to heal or support myself or someone else, perhaps seeking spiritual information about a situation. Learning what the underlying non-physical source of a condition is exceptionally valuable. It’s best to establish at least one mission objective that’s clearly planned so the universe (and you) can set the best conditions to achieve good results. Once you’ve established a solid starting point, you can always improvise and change the plan. Being non-specific in your mission is an option, but I always feel an objective helps me to focus my intentions. Next, set the physical conditions for your adventure.
A side note: statistical research has shown a correlation between the overhead presence of the center of the Milky Way galaxy and the accuracy of a Remote Viewing (RV) sessions. Simply, when the center of the Milky Way is overhead, people get better RV results. Since RV is another form of non-physical out of body work, I’ve taken heed of this information and found it to be most useful. Since the center of the Milky Way galaxy sits at approximately 25º Sagittarius, you might want to have that position in the Tropical Zodiac overhead somewhere during your work (i.e. anywhere in the physical sky above you).
The primary objective of our efforts is to achieve a “Working Meditative State” with the body and consciousness. It’s critical to understand that the more relaxed our bodies are, the more capable we become of projecting our consciousness (with intent) outward into the universe. All “out of body” methods involve some form of projecting awareness outside of the physical body, partially leaving behind physical reality. From your personal beliefs or experience, anything that helps you safely develop this state of consciousness is likely good to pursue.
Now, consider that we will remain somewhat alert to our physical surroundings, knowing what’s going on in the environment, but allow waking conscious awareness to greatly subside. Conducting a session at night time can be best as distractions are minimized, but working during the daylight is certainly possible, especially with greater experience. Prior to starting a session, be sure to go to the bathroom and/or drink some water (especially if your thirsty), but avoiding food intake is a good idea. Sometimes I start lying in a bed on my back, a pillow under my knees, or I’m sitting comfortably on a couch, wearing sun shades if there are any distracting lights in the room.
Begin by relaxing the body. Eyes closed, focus on breathing deeply to help release physical reality and awareness; breathe in through the nose, pausing briefly, and out though the mouth with perched lips, creating some resistance to outward breath. The objective ratio is 5:2:7, or count to 5 breathing in through the nose, rest for 2, breathe out through the mouth for 7, then rest for 2 before starting again. In three to four deep breath cycles, you can shift the mind away from the physical, allowing any conscious thoughts to subside and feeling free from cerebral mind chatter. If the mind babble pops in, with eyes still closed, look ahead of you into an empty, quite space, focusing on the darkness, continuing the deep breathing through a few more cycles.
Now, and eventually with some automatic movement, raise your hands in front of your face with the thumbs and index fingers touching each other to create a triangle shaped form. While continuing the rhythmic breathing pattern, inhale and then exhale by blowing through the center of the triangle made with both hands. Visualize producing a ring of air, like a doughnut shaped smoke ring, slowly billowing into space. In separate cycles, blow three times through the triangle, visualizing three air rings expanding in a line above or in front of you. The next part is fun.
Using a technique employed by many in Astral Projection, visualize your consciousness loosening its attachment to the physical body, allowing the lightness of your awareness to gently rise above your position. Now, looking with your minds eye into the three concentric air rings, starting head first, your awareness or astral body will gently “peel away” from the psychical body, allowing it to rise up and away, heading into the three concentric air rings you created. Remember, you can visualize your astral body as having the same human shape or pattern and of any size, large or small. It’s important to remember that with the astral body and awareness goes your “mind’s eye” perspective, you can see into the other planes or dimensions of existence.
As you rise up and the astral body passes through the three air rings, each ring will represent transitional layers that progressively separate you from physical reality. Think of them like bubble rings your astral body must pass through, each bubble membrane acting as a portal to higher levels of the non-physical. The last ring (the first one you created), exits in a space in a higher dimension of the non-physical. From here, it’s possible for you to venture to any location in the universe by “traveling” there with your Astral Body.
From this point, it’s like we’ve started the car, backed out of the driveway, put it in gear, and are ready to press on the gas pedal to begin our journey to other places. What comes next is quite diverse and absolutely different for everybody. In the next article, I’ll discuss some of my personal non-physical experiences to give you a better idea of what’s possible in the other dimensions. For now, let’s explore some important principles that should be applied in all interactions and work we perform in the non-physical.
Your astral body’s capability is shaped by your capacity to imagine what can be done, which is almost limitless. However, please remember that in the spirit realms, you actually represent through your actions not only yourself, but ALL OF US. Maintaining a consistent HIGH MORAL-ETHICAL-SPIRITUAL STANDARD in all interactions in the non-physical is vital. Here are a few guiding principles to consider:
- Let love be your guide and consider your spiritual radiance as an inspiration to all beings, human and non-human. Do no harm.
- Treat others as you would wish to be treated, with the same amount of respect and consideration you desire.
- Transformation is always preferred over confrontation. Seek a higher consciousness solution to a challenge that will reflect your spiritual wisdom.
- The universe can provide almost all the information you seek. Identifying value, validity or truth is possible by simply accessing the feelings of your inner being or soul. Utilize critical thinking.
- To get assistance, you must ask for it. Your guides and other beings generally operate on this principle. Yet, you should question an unsolicited offer of assistance from any being.
- There are many non-physical entities who are willing to help you, and a few who can deceive. In all your interactions, engage fully your mechanisms of discernment.
- You ALWAYS have the right and duty to protect and defend yourself in the non-physical. But, be warned, what comes to you can be a consequence of what you project or what you need most to learn.
Lastly, in the astral body state, you might consider that each choice you make has a consequence, yet every situation can be viewed as an opportunity to learn, which is the greatest gift of source. Evolving information and the resulting choices we make could become detrimental or challenging to a mission, but if you keep asking questions, you should be able to determine a viable solution.
Also, your choices are tied to your understanding of “what you are” and “what you can do” in the non-physical. Consider that whatever you take with you as a known pattern you’ve experienced in the PHYSICAL might entail limitations in the NON-PHYSICAL. For instance, if you visualize or conceive yourself as having the abilities of a known comic book character, such as Spiderman, then you could likely have all the powers, but also the limitations, of that superhero. Modification of abilities is of course possible, but wording of your intentions must be done wisely. You can think of yourself in almost any form, but in all your actions, be mindfully responsible to yourself and all the other beings you encounter out there in the universe.
Remember, your own personal experiences are intimately linked to those of others. We are all the same underneath and here on a mission to grow spiritually together through our physical life experiences. The ultimate objective of humanity is to support the expansion of consciousness in the universe. In all our endeavors, astrology is a valuable tool that can help you to understand parts of physical existence that might otherwise remain veiled in the obscurity of the non-physical.
