Astral Projection: Just a Mind Trip
The idea that humans can leave their bodies during dream states is an ancient one. Countless people — from New Agers to shamen around the world to 19th-century occult philosopher Madame Blavatsky — believe that it is possible to commune with cosmic intelligence through visions and vivid dreams experienced during astral projection, also known as out-of-body experiences.
Surveys suggest that between 8 and 20 percent of people claim to have had something like an out-of-body experience at some point in their lives — a sensation of the consciousness, spirit, or "astral body" leaving the physical body. While most experiences occur during sleep or under hypnosis, some people claim to do it while merely relaxing. According to one popular theory, the astral body remains connected through a metaphorical silver cord (akin to an umbilical cord) that tethers the roaming consciousness to the physical body.
Though practiced for millennia, these days astral travel can be big business; a man named Mark Pritchard (who goes by the more evocative moniker V.M. Beelzebub) offers an online course and book on how to learn astral travel in eight weeks. As he explains, "the Astral is one of two planes on the fifth dimension; it is where dreams occur, where mystical teachings are given and where the deceased go.... you can meet spiritual beings in the Astral, discover secret knowledge, learn about yourself, see where your spiritual obstacles and inner defects are, learn hidden wisdom about death, the process of awakening, get premonitions of the future, receive guidance, discover the purpose of life, discover what happens with death, and much more.... it is something that really happens to you. You actually find yourself in another dimension, existing outside the physical world. You will be able to fly, go through walls and objects, meet people and travel to distant places. It is a profound experience."
