Edgar Cayce spoke in detail of the possibility for your Conscious Mind to leave your body, as your etheric double, and visit other locations and time experiences, both on the planet and off the planet. Can this actually be done and has anyone truly experienced this phenomena? The answer is YES! The great yogis teach that with meditation, concentrating on Chakra balancing, and directing your energies, anyone can have this experience at will.

This experience has various terms, such as soul travel, astral travel, out-of-body experience and working with your etheric double. Don't confuse these terms with the near-death experience, as they are NOT the same.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead as well as the Tibetian Book of the Dead, describe an individuals "ka", "Chi" or spirit energy, which can separate from its physical body and be directed elsewhere. The Bible has at least one reference to astral travel in II Corinthians 12:2-5. St. Paul actually used the phrase out of bod y, in describing a man he once knew.

"I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago. (Whether he was in the body or out, I cannot tell. God knoweth:) such as one caught up in the third heaven.

And I knew such a man (whether in the body or out, I cannot tell. God knoweth:).

How that he was caught up into Paradise and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Of such a man I will glory, for he is truly close to God. Yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.

In the late 1880's the Theosophical Society, led by the renowned spiritualist Madame Blavatsky, claimed to regularly have out-of-body experiences. America's most celebrated prophet, Edgar Cacye, also routinely entered into a trance state where his astral body could span both time and space. He learned information instantaneously, from ancient Egypt, Atlantis, as well as in present time, by diagnosing people's ailments from several thousand miles away.

This is an art I have mastered over the years. All I need is the name of the person, their location and birth date, and amazing information will come through the ethers into my mind. There is also revealed time events, years they will take place, as well as the location of our dearly departed loved ones on the Other Side. One can communicate with parents, children and loved ones on the Other Side. At one time I was giving a reading to a woman in Australia, while I was living in New York City. I suddenly asked her how she liked her new golden retriever dog, which she had purchased in August of 1998. There was NO WAY that information could have been learned beforehand, as we were both strangers. To her shock, she acknowledged purchasing a golden retriever last August and wondered how I knew? I also "felt" it was a female. The dog's etheric self came to visit me for a petting. It was great!

Astral projection can be mastered by two individuals simultaneously. It is certain that this phenomena exists within identical twins, who have a higher vibration between each other as they have the same DNA and cell structure. (I am one of two sets of identical twins in my family!) A couple who live a long distance apart can visit each other, through the mind or while on the phone or computer, and embrace each other, which both are fully aware of what is going on. There was a time I was thinking of a lover early one Sunday morning, and wanted to know where he was. As I began to meditate on his energies, instantly I knew he was on an airplane coming home from Montreal, Canada. I was a real pest to him for a few minutes on the astral plain, and asked through telepathy, for him to give me a call when the plane landed. This was around 8:00 am and the call came in at 12:30 pm. He told me he knew I was thinking of him because suddenly he felt warm all over, and then the stewardess' face became mine to him. Strange? Not at all!

You can use your astral energies to find a new lover or Soulmate. As a matter of fact, these energies can be used for many types of manifestation. (Read my Creating Miracles article) You can enjoy a dual life, one with the husband or wife you are married to, and another with Michelle Pfieffer or any other one you may choose on the Astral plain. However, this may not be too healthy for you. I believe these energies should be used with discernment.

One can learn the art of astral projection through meditation and study. This is part of what I teach at my spiritual retreats. We can travel together as a group, or one can travel individually to have their own experience. You can journey to other localities, enter the body of animals to see how this feels and to gain a better understanding of life, as well as sending a strong healing energy to other humans. (Never try to put your energies inside another human being, but rather wrap them in the white light of universal love and the green light of healing energies, so they can absorb these energies as needed.)When using the cassette guided meditation, Chakras for your Body, you will open up and balance your energy fields to begin this wonderful experience.

Astral Travel for Beginners

* Sit down in a comfortable chair with both feel flat on the floor, uncrossed.

* The room should be semi-dark, telephone unhooked, warm and comfortable. Make sure you will not be disturbed, as this could cause you physical harm.

* Take several deep breaths, eight to sixteen. Then allow yourself to become relaxed and return to normal, rhymatic breathing.

* Begin to concentrate on your Solar Plexus, and feel your etheric self begin to depart from within you.

* Start thinking of your desire to travel astrally, focusing on the location and time/year you wish to travel to.

* Remain quiet, confident that you will allow your other self to leave your body. Trust in your Higher Self and your Guides, who may accompany you.

* Then, begin your inner dialogue with your Etheric Self. "I choose to leave my body now and to travel to my desired destination. I am ready to leave my body. My Astral Self is ready to travel. I desire to leave this room NOW!"

* Wait several minutes, then begin the dialogue again. Do this for at least an hour, unless you begin to feel the movement. At that time, begin to concentrate on the experience without fear.

* If you are successful, your body will begin to vibrate and you will find yourself free of it, attached only by the silver cord. You can rise yourself up and look down upon your body, safely sitting in the chair. Now you are able to travel to any place, era or planet you choose, at will, through using your telepathic thoughts. (This is a good technique to help with body pain.)

* Remember, you will come back to your body instantly if there is fear, or if you declare it while traveling. Do not be frightened. You will always be able to return to your body. You will never get lost in space.

* If you are unable to disengage your etheric self from your body after a few tries, practice the Chakra Meditation tape daily for seven days, then go for a brisk walk before the out-of-body meditation. Reflect on the spiritual progress that you have made thus far, and on how many of your inner perceptions have changed. Love yourself! Trust the process. Continue to remain optimistic about your future astral travel trip. Return from the walk and begin the exercise again.

* Doing this exercise with three or more people will help the energies become stronger.

* If you are unsuccessful, continue trying each day, and be sure to keep a journal of your experiences. Watch how your psychic energies will open up for you.
