Astral TravelWritten by Robert Bruce Baird
ASTRAL TRAVEL: - Why would I put something so natural and real in a mystery segment? Although everyone travels astrally few are conscious of where they go or what happens when they are asleep. The waking consciousness seems a jealous protector of its domain and wishes to give little credit to our dream state. Yet, there are systems of belief that know what our soul learns in sleep to be as important as when we are awake.
Conscious dreaming may have an element of positive thinking and visualization or prayer (wishful thinking) that pure astral travel does not. Some purists will say that OOBEs or 'Out of Body Experiences' are only astral events. It is possible for others to take you with them on their 'travels' and adept I mentioned in relation to mountain-climbing Sutra did that with me. I met Blue Harary at Psychical Research Foundation in Durham North Carolina many years before he wrote his book on subject. He had a black cat in his room when I saw him doing his research with them. I have found this helpful myself. Whether that is a 'familiar' or a guide and sometimes even known as an ally is also just words. What might work is what should matter.
As part of process to conscious dreaming and decreeing it is good to think of everything you did during day before you go to sleep. As you do this you should think of what you would like to
Ghosts vs. Demons: Real or CoincidenceWritten by Gloria Young
As a ghost hunter and paranormal investigator, I have had my share of experiences with ghosts. I have also had my share of people asking me how I know it was a ghost that made those experiences happen. My response goes something like, 'when I get my hair pulled, my shirt pulled or I get pushed and, when turning around there is no one there, itís hard for me to say that itís not a ghost. When performing an investigation, I know where other members of group are and realization that I was touched by something that no longer exists as a part of this world, becomes very profound to me. It took an extreme amount of energy for that ghost to perform that action and he/she picked me to do it to. I feel very honored. It is not often that one is chosen for such an honor.
As I am able to discuss effects of dealing with a ghost, I think it is proper at this point to discuss possibilities of demons. First, let me make it very clear that in over ten years of performing investigations in buildings, graveyards and homes I have never come across anything evil or malevolent. I am not saying that there isnít anything like that out in this world but it is not something that I have ever come across.
Personally, I donít believe that such things exist. I also donít believe that these things have anything to do with religion or God. You cannot demand them to go away in name of Lord. The Lord didnít make them. How can you expect Lord to take them away? Religion has nothing to do with any of these things.
Demonologists cannot take away things that are evil. Taking word for what it is and means Ė demon is obvious in that it is something not from this world but Ėology is ďthe study ofĒ, therefore, demonologist stands for someone who studies demons. The word doesnít stand for remover of demons. I have a difficult time understanding, let alone believing that someoneÖa human being can take away something that is made from evil. Standing in middle of a room with a cross that has probably been blessed does not make evil leave. It does make person performing this ritual and person who lives in house feel much better but it serves no other purpose.
