When listening to Anahata Nada, sound of OM, it's easy to move into Astral plane. The Vedas describe meditating on a feather, very light and taking the whole body and imagine as weightless as a feather. Take all your physical body, all emotional and mental thoughts, and put them inside the Anahata Nada, become light as a feather. Through the psychic eye, you become invisible. Astral projection (or astral travel) is an interpretation of out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of an "astral body" separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it. Astral projection or travel denotes the astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the astral plane. The Isra and Mi'raj, are the two parts of a Night Journey that, according to Islamic tradition, the Islamic prophet Muhammad took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. A brief sketch of the story is in sura 17 Al-Isra of the Quran, and other details come from the Hadith, supplemental writings about the life of Muhammad. In the journey, Muhammad travels on the steed Buraq to "the farthest mosque" where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven where he speaks to God, who gives Muhammad instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayer. It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah (b. Umar) that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was taken for the Night journey, he was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha, which is situated on the sixth heaven... Then he took me to heaven. Gabriel then asked the (gate of heaven) to be opened and he was asked who he was. He replied: Gabriel. He was again asked: Who is with you? He (Gabriel) said: Muhammad. It was said: Has he been sent for? Gabriel replied: He has indeed been sent for. And (the door of the heaven) was opened for us and lo! we saw Adam. He welcomed me and prayed for my good. According to classical, medieval and renaissance Hermeticism, Neoplatonism, and later Theosophist and Rosicrucian thought, the astral body is an intermediate body of light linking the rational soul to the physical body while the astral plane is an intermediate world of light between Heaven and Earth, composed of the spheres of the planets and stars. These astral spheres were held to be populated by angels, demons and spirits. Some of the form of astral projections I encountered: Sexual astral encounters I had with my soulmate. Both of us psychic for a number of years, and astral love through projections opened up our intuition to a new height. We also do healing through Soul, appear in each other's dimensions, provide protection, talk to each other all day and make love. One of the most strongest practice, when you do it with a loved one, in my case, Soulmate astral projection. Brahmananda and Sivananda are also known to appear to His followers when initiated. Initiation is a pure form of devotion, or Bhakti yoga, i.e. selfless service. By accepting the guru in Mind, Heart and Soul as Self teacher, the guru starts to provide guidance and intuition. The gurus appear to many people at once when invoked, even after their death. According to Brahmananda: "I will be able to help more people when I die than when I was alive." Many people in the ashram receive his daily guidance, in my case spontaneous guidance when needed. Not just that, I hear him cracking jokes on my childhood and cursing me in the most loving manner all day. This is another form of astral projection. The pitfalls of astral projections, i.e. akashic records access is unwanted sounds and unreal projections. What we encountered through the astral love is 'other' deities intrusion and harnessing on our weaknesses. The astral plane is full of Angels, Demons and Spirits. 9 out of 10 beings on earth are invisible. Through the astral plane they come into our subconscious. The solution for handling these voices is: Ignore the unwanted voices, go into meditation and come back to your practice in a day or two. The more the light, the more the darkness. Darkness gets attracted by light, so in the astral plane, it's important to be mindful. Dark forces are usually feeding on our reaction. By ignoring them, a gap is created in their thoughts. Prayer is the most important factor in astral travelling. Strong prayer provides a barrier between us and the unseen. Whether it's fallen angels, demons or Spirits, all believe in God. Astral travelling also opens gates to our past life karma. Sometimes, there could be Spirits, Demons and Angels from our past lives, still having vivid memory of us. In astral plane, or akashic records, everything opens up. Be mindful of their guidance. Listen carefully. Don't react, rather sort through all the facts. Don't take any emotional decisions. The intuition could be wrong, based on who it's coming from in the astral plane. Dark Souls like to pretend they are somebody else. Use Time as a tool to decide whether the intuition is correct. Don't take any harsh decisions for your loved ones.
