Dreams are a way for the subconscious mind to express itself.  Writing down or keeping a journal of your dreams immediately upon waking is a great way to sort through the symbols and messages that come to you in this manner.  There are different types of dreams and by recording these dreams is becomes possible to evaluate the significance they hold.  While a few dreams may be precognitive (foretelling of a future event),  many are indicative of personal desires, and still others are symbolic messages of problems we need to resolve with our conscious emotions.

Astral Travel

  Astral travel, or astral projection,  is an occurrence that may seem like a dream, but it is what is happening when the persons consciousness leaves the body during sleep or deep meditation.  This is one way that our own spirit may choose to meet with passed loved ones or with our spirit guides. Usually when this takes place, people aren't even aware they are astral traveling - all they know is that when they wake up after having a visit such as this is that it "seemed so real."  This experience is more common than is generally recognized.  Most frequently adults will recall, or children will tell of, dreams in which they were flying.  Oftentimes they mention "flying" through their homes or over their hometowns.  

Bilocation is also a form of astral projection.  In bilocating a person is able to project their consciousness to another location.  They are able to hear, see, and even speak using their 'astral body.'  All the while being able to function consciously from within their physical body as well.   Remote viewing is a related type of astral projection.  (More on astral projection).

Out-of-Body Experience (O.B.E.) is similar to astral travel, but the spirit body will actually separate from the physical body.  When this occurs there is sometimes a "POP" sound that is heard at the moment of separation.  O.B.E. can occur during sleep state, meditation, or it may be intentionally induced.  This phenomenon is oftentimes connected to near-death experiences (N.D.E.), in which people report witnessing their physical body and it's environment from a point outside of it.


**Please note that we do NOT recommend experimenting with trying to induce O.B.E.

"The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens into that primeval comic night that was soul long before there was a conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach."
