33. Astral Beings and Wildlife
The astral dimension contains a wide variety of nonphysical
energetic life forms, whose intelligence level varies enormously.
The vast majority of each type appear to have their own agendas,
like to keep to themselves, and in general do not like being
bothered or interfered with. Not counting high-level beings like
demigods, angels, and spirit masters, they range from friendly, to
occasionally helpful, to playful, to neutral, to mischievous, to
malicious, to downright nasty and evil.
These beings appear in a
wide variety of illusory forms. Some of the less-intelligent types
seem animalistic and predatory by nature, much like the animal and
insect wildlife found in the physical dimension: I call these last
astral wildlife. Although these all appear to come from somewhere in
or near the astral dimension, many are capable of operating in the
real-time zone. And some of these, unfortunately, delight in
tormenting projectors, especially new ones.
In a way, the astral dimension can be likened to the ocean - given
the fluid nature of its many internal environments, you can find
absolutely anything there: fish, shellfish, octopi, dolphins,
whales, sharks, barracuda, sea snakes, crabs, shrimp, jellyfish,
turtles, seals, and penguins, etc., etc. Some ocean wildlife is
friendly; some is harmless; some is harmful only when disturbed,
annoyed, or hungry; some can be unintentionally harmful; and others
are downright dangerous all the time. There are also many travelers,
some even from far-off lands, found sailing, flying, or swimming
Although many parts of the astral planes appear to be full of life,
it is fairly rare to meet up with interested beings while traveling
there. But it does happen occasionally. Just about every astral
plane and realm has some kind of local inhabitants. These life forms
often live in specific areas or realms, and often seem quite unaware
of any reality or dimensional level other than their own. They are
often amazed when they meet an astral traveler. Other types seem to
be well aware of other dimensions, but most seem to have little
patience with projectors and tend to ignore them.
In a way, approaching astral beings you do not know is very much
like approaching strangers in the physical dimension. Most strangers
ignore other people, even when politely asked directions or
questions. Strangers will, at best, give cursory answers as they
hurry away while actively trying to ignore you. Astral beings, too,
don't seem to enjoy getting involved with the affairs of strangers,
usually having much more important things to do with their time.
While projecting, you'll also occasionally meet up with other
projectors like yourself, but most of these will not even be aware
they are projecting. Projectors' awareness and memories of their
physical existence, of who and what they are, vary greatly. Many
seem to be sleepwalking or dreaming, or are just going along with
the flow of life and events in an astral realm as if they were a
part of it and actually lived there. They are often quite surprised
when it is pointed out to them that they can fly, etc.
I suspect this variability in awareness and memory is caused by many
factors, such as energetic development and activity, the amount of
energy flowing into the projected double from its physical/etheric
body, and whether a projector has made a conscious exit and has
retained awareness afterward. The conscious exit out of the body
seems to cause a much greater flow of energy into the projected
double than is usually available to sleep projectors. It is also
possible that the unbroken continuance of awareness provided by a
conscious-exit projection removes much of the dreamlike qualities
associated with existing in other dimensions.
The most important thing to realize about any beings you might come
across in the astral dimension is that they are not all dream beings
or creations of your own subconscious mind. Intelligent or
otherwise, they usually have their own life, meaning, and purpose,
whatever that might be. They are, in most cases, not mere
decorations to be toyed with or used by any passing astral traveler.
And yet, some astral beings will converse with and even actively
encourage astral travelers, especially if projectors are courteous
and sincere. Like attracts like in the astral planes; if you are
friendly and sincere, you are far more likely to meet beings who are
also friendly and sincere.
The best conduct and safety rule is to keep to yourself, be polite,
and mind your own business unless approached or invited to do
otherwise. And - always be ready to move quickly away if anything
strange or threatening happens, or if you feel uncomfortable in any
Only very rarely will projectors come across advanced spiritual
beings, and even more rarely will they encounter angels. In my
opinion, angels are a race of highly advanced spiritual beings. They
most definitely exist. I have seen angels many times, in OBEs and
visions, as well as with my bare eyes on a few rare and precious
occasions. They are impossible to track down or find intentionally
during an OBE.
They are especially rare in the real-time zone and
the low- to midastral planes. You occasionally come across them
accidentally, especially in the high-astral and mental dimension.
Angels, and other advanced spiritual beings, seem to make themselves
visible only when they have a very good reason for doing so. They
are definitely not the type to stop and chat in passing.
Angels and advanced spirit beings, unlike most astral inhabitants,
do not appear limited to any particular plane or dimension level.
They have the ability, I believe, to manifest in any level, even in
the real-time zone and the physical dimension. They have the ability
to enfold lesser beings in their energy and temporarily transport
them into other dimensional levels. In this way, they will often be
seen helping the spirits of deceased people to manifest temporarily
in the real-time zone, or even to help them appear visibly in the
physical dimension itself. This kind of thing always has very good
reasons behind it, although those reasons may not be apparent at the
Typically, a spirit manifestation like this will begin with a strong
buildup of energy in the room, accompanied by many silver motes and
tiny sparkles of light. A tangible aura of power and presence
spreads throughout the room and the atmosphere becomes electric. A
narrow, vertical shaft of brilliant-silver light then appears and
quickly expands, as if curtains of light were being drawn apart just
wide enough for a person to walk through. A huge gush of
brilliant-silver light, along with a tangible feeling of power,
excitement, and love spills through this parting in the dimensional
veil. The visiting deceased spirit then simply walks through this
opening and stands just inside the room, bathed and held within this
pool of light.
At this time, if you have the sight and you look further back into
the light behind the deceased spirit, you will usually see at least
one advanced spirit being or angel standing there, as if patiently
waiting a dozen or so feet behind the spirit visitor.
relative or friend of the visiting spirit will also often be seen
standing just behind and to the side of the spirit visitor, often
holding a hand or resting a hand on a shoulder.
Whenever projectors consciously exit their bodies, especially new
projectors, there is always a small chance they may find themselves
in the middle of some kind of extraordinary ceremony. These are
incredibly exciting and powerful events. They are usually very
nonthreatening, although they may cause some anxiety simply because
of their unusual and powerful nature. These are rare, though, and
catch most projectors totally by surprise.
Perhaps this kind of event takes place to mark a significant
milestone in a projector's spiritual development and life's path.
The projector may be totally unaware of the significance of this
first conscious-exit projection, but the higher spirit beings mark
it as an occasion that warrants ceremony. Often a projector appears
to experience internal changes during these ceremonies. This type of
event can have a considerable effect on a projector's belief system
and future life path.
I am not suggesting that new projectors should expect anything like
this to happen to them, as usually nothing will. And, if nothing
does happen, please be thankful for the peace and quiet and use this
time to get your astral sea legs, so to speak.
On the other hand, it
pays to be prepared for the unexpected at all times ... just in case
something extraordinary really does happen.
It is possible, while out of body, to contact advanced beings in the
astral planes, but this is far more difficult than most people
imagine. Just because projectors can get out of their bodies and
stumble about the astral planes does not mean they have instant
access to advanced spirit beings or guides.
For high-level contact to be made at all-in or out of body - it
seems that there must be a genuine need for advice or help. High
contact does not always work even then. I suspect this is because
the need must be important enough to warrant such intervention.
Wanting general advice on life, or having a bucketload of questions,
does not seem to fit this bill.
Advanced spirit beings rarely contact or allow themselves to be
contacted by humans. Contact will be made when they think it is
warranted - when they think the time is right.
Many in our modem world feel directionless, lost, spiritually
starved, isolated, and deprived. They naturally yearn for contact
with advanced spirit beings to show them the way. They think that if
they could only get out of their bodies they could visit these
higher beings, or demand an audience, but this just doesn't work. If
an advanced being needs to contact someone, it does so. Nothing that
person could do would be able to miss or block this contact. People
do not need to be out of body, nor psychic nor developed in any way
whatsoever for high contact to occur.
High-level contact will occasionally happen during a projection, and
I have learned a few projection-related ways of helping this along.
Projecting consciously out of body and into the astral planes will
often, in itself, precipitate some level of contact with advanced
spirit beings. I have found, though, that making any kind of high
contact is best thought of as a long-term goal, something to be
looked forward to, patiently, while making the most of your life in
the best way you can; no one can do any better than that.
way to cultivate high-level contact, and to speed this moment along
a little, is through regular, meaningful spiritual service and
development, complemented by energetic and psychic development, in
that particularorder of priority and effort.
There are, however, a
few projection-related ways that could encourage high-level contact.
Sending Out a Request
Form a strong intention and hold it in mind every night while
falling asleep, especially before making a projection attempt.
Visualize and voice this intention, this request, daily through
prayers and meditations, or through simple thoughts during quiet
moments of each day. Keep this request in the back of your mind
during the day, and fall asleep with this on your mind.
make your request known on higher levels.
Symptoms of high contact
may appear through dreams and lucid dreams, and not through
Immediately after each real-time exit, move at least twenty feet
away from your physical body and stop. Stand quietly for a moment
and reverently state your request for high contact, speaking aloud
Then, leave your house and fix your eyes on the stars
above. If it is cloudy, fly above them, or fly into orbit if it's
daylight. Pick out the brightest star you can see, or a group of
stars that appeals to you, and while holding your request strongly
in mind, project toward them at hyperspeed.
Feel yourself moving toward the target and feel it moving toward
This will cause a dimensional shift into the astral planes and
will, hopefully, transport you to a higher-than-normal level, where
you will have more chance of finding the contact you desire.
Asking for Directions
Astral travelers often come across intelligent astral beings, and
some will be kind and helpful. They may not have the answers the
traveler seeks, but some will proffer advice or give directions, if
approached with respect and asked nicely. Some astral beings often
seem a bit out of place when you find them, just sitting or standing
about looking very unimportant. They seem to delight in tricking
projectors and testing out their true nature and intention.
They may appear as a small child, an old beggar, or even an animal
of some kind. They may appear as a beautiful young man or woman,
often scantily clad and with a sexually provocative demeanor. This
last is a severe test, as projectors must control not only their
thoughts, but also their primal instincts and urges.
These beings can be very hard to spot, appearing as absolutely
anything, and will usually pick something a projector would least
expect. If approached in just the right way, they will often be
found to be far more than what they appear to be. Some are only too
pleased to give advice and directions, although this will often be a
bit on the cryptic side. They may not, as I said, have the answers
the projector seeks, but will often point them in the right
direction, which is a very good start indeed.
Alternatively, advanced spirit beings often appear as something more
easily recognizable. They will thus often appear in a more
traditional and acceptable guise, such as a wise man or woman, often
in a form taken from the mind of the projector. Many people today
believe they have a spirit guide of a particular appearance and
An advanced spirit being will sometimes take on this guise to
make a planned contact.
The Priest and the Curse - Experience
A good example of high-level contact came about recently when I had
a serious problem. I had been studying the dynamics of psychic
attack, and had allowed a fairly strong attack to continue on my
person for a little too long before attempting to break away from
it. I was observing the methods and tactics used by the perpetrator,
and by the entities involved, and was experimenting with wards and
countermeasures. It had been ongoing, on and off, for several
The attack was complex, but my biggest problems were exhaustion and
stress. I had found a significant energy blockage in my right hip,
which had appeared sometime during the course of the attack. This
was draining me of energy and causing a lot of pain. I was in a real
mess and could feel myself getting steadily weaker.
I could not even
balance myself well enough to meditate properly, especially at
night. To tell the truth I was getting a bit worried by the mess I'd
gotten myself into. The experiment had seemed like a good idea at
the time, but I would not recommend this kind of thing to the
fainthearted. On a brighter note, I learned a great deal from all of
this, which added significantly to my knowledge of these matters.
After a great deal of effort, I finally managed to project, albeit
somewhat weakly, out of my body. I immediately formed a strong
request for help and projected to the stars, aiming for the
brightest star in the Southern Cross. My vision blurred and I
experienced a brief tunnel-of-light effect as the dimensional shift
took me, before it cleared and solidified. I found myself in a
candlelit room with rough stone walls and floor.
Twenty feet or so
in front of me sat a being, in appearance a small, thin old priest
well into his eighties. He was wearing a full-length white cotton
robe with a plain rope belt tied at the waist, A white skullcap
covered the back of his balding gray head, his hair cut very short
around this. For all his apparent age, his face seemed young and
soft and his eyes sparkled with wisdom, strength, and gentle
kindness. Across his lap lay a wide sash, white with gold knotted
tassels and edging, with a beautiful gold crucifix emblazoned on it.
Around his neck hung a simple gold chain holding a small gold
crucifix. I was standing outside a wide circle of candles
surrounding him. I stepped up to the circle and introduced myself,
feeling a tangible sensation of love and raw power emanating from
this insignificant-looking being. The priest looked up at me, his
eyes twinkling with amusement as he nodded a pleasant greeting.
beckoned me to come closer and I sat facing him, cross-legged on the
floor as he was.
I told him my whole story and of the trouble I was in. He listened
quietly, eyes half-closed, occasionally asking pertinent questions
and steering my discourse. I found him very easy to talk to, and
love and respect for him blossomed within me. After I was done
talking, the priest sat for a while with his eyes closed then began
speaking quietly, offering advice and generally clearing the air
about the whole situation. I learned a great deal from this
conversation and listened intently. His knowledge and wisdom in
these matters astounded me. Never before had I met anyone, living or
otherwise, with whom I could talk on this level.
At one point, as the priest began talking about my right hip, he
moved his hands and beckoned me toward him. I felt myself gripped in
a powerful force. I was rolled onto my side and drawn to lie
horizontally in front of the priest, facing him, floating just off
the floor, suddenly finding myself naked. The priest moved his small
hands over my body and finally laid them on my hip. My hip joint
moved and felt like it was being turned inside out. This did not
hurt but felt rather uncomfortable.
The priest moved his hands slowly back and a murky-dark, roughly
shoebox-shaped object, shot through with dull-reddish and orange
lumps and grisly black lines floated out of my hip.
He pulled this
away from my skin slightly and showed me angry red and black cords
extending like sticky strings into my hip, groin, and upper thigh.
It was an ugly-looking thing and felt like it was attached to my
nerves in those areas. When the priest moved his hands under it, I
could feel nerves tugging and twanging uncomfortably, deep inside my
He smiled with interest and said:
"Goodness, I have not seen one of
these in ages. Most of them wear off after a few years, but one like
this can last for generations".
"What is it?" I asked.
"A curse, most likely from a witch", he decreed, "and a powerful one
at that. I would say you've had this for a very long time. You will
remember how you got it one day", he said, stopping what he was
doing for a moment and looking deep into my eyes. "And then you must
come back and see me again. Luckily, being so old, it's in a greatly
weakened state, although still quite active. It seems to have been
altered many times, and is now working in a way it was not designed
for. This has probably come about through the many attacks you have
suffered during your earthly life, especially this current one.
"You have powerful enemies, Robert. Curses like this affect the
atmosphere around a person, causing false attractions and repulsions
in them, and in the people around them, something like a bad luck
charm, only much worse. The energetic fields emanating from this
device cause disruptions in the currents of universal law; much as a
steel object can interfere with the accuracy of a magnetic compass.
"Curses like this are not of your world. They are usually designed
to have a particular negative effect. This is most likely the reason
why the source of your current attack was attracted to you in the
first place, and why she has been able to cause you so much trouble.
I'll see what I can do with it".
With that, the priest reverently lifted and laid the wide sash over
He then closed his eyes and began speaking softly in a
tongue I did not understand, although it sounded a bit like Latin. A
brilliant-white light then spouted from his hands and bored deep
inside me, all around and through the strange thing on my hip. I
felt nerves twanging and pricking and then a tickling, almost
erotic, feeling flooded through my groin as the thing brightened
suddenly and then faded. It changed visibly, filling with
sparkling-white motes of light, then dissolved back inside my body.
"Robert, please listen to me very carefully. Mine is the magic that
binds and releases. I cannot harm, remove, or destroy this thing for
you. It is alive in its own special way and I cannot kill it for
you. I can only bind it in such a way that its effects on you will
be reduced to a more tolerable level. Only you can remove this, but
first you must remember how you got it, who gave it to you, and,
most importantly, why they would do such a terrible thing".
It felt like a great weight had been lifted off me and my hip felt
tender and a little numb. The numbness spread and soon became an
intense buzzing. The priest's face slowly faded as the stone room
disappeared and my own room materialized around me. I slid down and
gently swam back into my body.
I came wide awake to find my right
hip and thigh really were numb and buzzing, so I took a limping walk
around the house (raiding the fridge in passing) until it settled
down to a more comfortable level, I returned to bed an hour later
and soon fell peacefully asleep, voicing my thanks in prayer to the
wonderful being I had just met.
After being under attack for so long, night after night after night,
the peace and quiet and lack of activity in my room was tangible,
like a healing balm to me. I awoke the next morning greatly
refreshed, with no cramps or pain at all and my hip felt a whole lot
better. The aftermath of this experience was that I grew quickly
stronger and the debilitating effects of the psychic attack reduced
As soon as I was strong enough, with a few more good
nights' sleep under my belt, I broke the connection and threw off
the attack completely.
Thought Form or Nonphysical Life-Form?
There is a popular argument, regularly put today, that all
negative-type nonphysical entities are simply thought forms, created
and propagated spontaneously or deliberately by the fears, thoughts,
and fantasies of mankind. These are generally considered
manifestations of the darker side of the collective consciousness of
mankind, given form in the lower astral subplanes over an extended
period of time. These are also thought of as something like
independent, self-motivated thought forms.
I believe that this is a simplistic way of accepting the obvious
existence of nonphysical beings, as simple thought forms. It avoids
the uncomfortable issues raised by the possibility that some
negative life forms may have different origins and be completely
independent. This last possibility upsets many people's framework of
how the universe works.
Entertaining this possibility seems to foster belief-system
confusion, discomfort, and insecurity in many people. This also
generates a feeling of helplessness when confronted by something
they actively wish to discount and disbelieve in. The majority of
people, I have found, do not like to believe in or talk about the
existence of devils and demons, demonic realms, and other nasties
that might go bump in the night.
Similarly, many people disbelieve there may be any other intelligent
life form in the universe: All UFO sightings are explainable as
natural phenomena or weather balloons. Accepting the possibility of
intelligent alien life forms, possibly with a higher level of
intelligence and technology than our own, fosters deep-seated
belief-system confusion, discomfort, and insecurity - simply through
the many issues this possibility raises.
There is a fine distinction, I believe, between real nonphysical
life forms from another dimension, and simple thought forms. Many
nonphysical life forms, while generally classified today as mindless
thought forms, seem to originate from other dimensions entirely,
possibly even from dimensions parallel to our own. The distinction
between these types, thought forms or independent beings, is
basically one of intelligence. Their limitations of intelligence are
shown by their ability to think, adapt, and innovate.
by nature, are mental creations, and exhibit only the behavioral
traits or intelligence programmed into them during their creation.
They have no innate natural intelligence with which to think, adapt,
and innovate when faced with new and intellectually challenging
True nonphysical life forms, on the other hand, would logically have
some level of natural intelligence, and would therefore be capable
of some adaptation and innovation. The level of flexibility and
originality exhibited would, obviously, be set by their level of
intelligence. This would make classification through the observation
of their reactions to stimulus at least feasible.
If all negative entities are thought forms, then logically so are
all positive entities, including all advanced spirit beings, spirit
guides, and angels. And it cannot be said that our universe-living
physical beings as well as nonphysical beings - contains only
positive manifestations of consciousness. In my life and
explorations I have found distinct similarities between the physical
dimension and nonphysical dimensions like the astral. Each contains
both positive and negative aspects, and many subtle gradients in
This whole argument does not appear to have any reasonable solution.
Neither type can be captured, examined, dissected, and properly
classified, or even accurately traced back to its origins, in
anything resembling a reliable scientific way. This leaves
observation, experience, and reasoning as the only tools with which
to form any kind of opinion. It becomes a bit of a moot point when
you have to deal with astral wildlife and other nonphysical beings
of any type on a firsthand basis.
I will, therefore, continue to
expound on this subject as I see it, according to my own
observations, experience, and reasoning.
Lower Subplane Wildlife
The most troublesome types of astral wildlife appear to come from
the notorious lower astral subplanes that contain the darker and
more negative aspects of the astral planes. These can be likened to
parallel shadows of the more positively oriented parts of the astral
planes. While still a part of the astral planes, technically
speaking, they are a distinctly separate aspect or part of it,
containing all the darker qualities. Another way of looking at this
is to consider this to be the night side of the astral planes.
Low astral wildlife normally seem capable of operating only in
dimensions similar to or lower than their dimension of origin.
This is reasonable, based on the energetic limitations set by their
nature and dimensional level of origin. Some of these beings do seem
capable of operating in the real-time zone. (The real-time zone can
be thought of as being fairly neutral territory, dimensionally
All lower types, regardless of classification or origin, appear to
be predatory loners showing varying degrees of strength,
intelligence, and ability. Negative beings exhibit a cold and almost
insectlike nature. Higher feelings like love, compassion, and mercy
are totally alien to them. This does not, however, mean they are
evil; it just means they have no higher feelings. A garden spider
has no higher feelings; it is not evil for killing and eating a
beautiful butterfly. It is a spider and acts according to its
nature; spiders feed on insects to survive.
In my experience, negative types do not work well together,
regardless of possible shared origins. They usually appear to be
quite aggressive and combative toward each other, which results in a
distinct pecking order whenever they are found together. Astral
wildlife may sometimes be forced to work together, temporarily,
through circumstances where they have a common interest or need.
Astral wildlife can manifest in an enormous variety of illusory and
changeable forms. Regular favorites are ugly grinning monkeys,
gargoyles, and harpy forms. Some seem to prefer a more traditional
horned-demon look, while others go for a more contemporary
appearance. These latter forms are possibly modeled on horror movies
and TV shows, or even from the modem nightmares of mankind.
The size and appearance of an entity, as seen by a projector, or
with real-time or astral sight, gives no fair indication of its
actual strength and intelligence. Many small and weak entities seem
to delight in looking big and dangerous, much as an animal will
fluff up its fur during a confrontation to make itself seem bigger.
Stronger and more intelligent entities do not seem to bother
overmuch with pretense and may even use their original form - if
they have one, that is. I have seen entities the size of polar bears
run screaming when "BOO!" is said to them. I have also seen others
the size and appearance of large rats with which I would not
interfere by choice.
Many entities seem to choose a form taken from the mind of a
projector (which indicates some degree of telepathic ability) and
use it to generate the maximum possible level of fear. This is a
very good reason for projectors to keep their minds clear and mask
their true feelings when they encounter or are forced to deal with
The weaker and by far the most common types of astral wildlife,
those responsible for the majority of elemental and dweller-type
scare attacks (see chapter 34) seem to have little power of their
own. These are fairly weak, timid creatures and their appearance is
always a greatly exaggerated illusion. They generally avoid direct
encounters with projectors, and usually beat a hasty retreat
whenever approached by a projector with a firm or confrontational
attitude. Most negative entities dislike direct attention and
actively avoid being seen.
Some types of astral wildlife seem attracted to, and possibly even
feed on, the energetic vibrations generated and broadcast by overly
fearful projectors. Continued fear and timidity on the part of a
projector seems to make astral wildlife more aggressive.
intimidating behavior is, however, always without direct attack.
This indicates they are not capable of mounting a direct attack on a
projector, and my experience supports this. Increased and continuing
fear on the part of a projector will often attract others of the
same type, thus increasing their numbers and making things generally
worse for a projector. Still, the appearance of these types is quite
The vast majority of astral wildlife do not, I believe, have the
power to directly injure a projector, but caution is always advised
in these matters. It is commonly thought that nonphysical entities
of any type are completely harmless to projectors, and are only
capable of scaring them. While this is generally true, as with the
elemental and dweller types discussed later in this book (see
chapter 34), there are exceptions. Real-time, astral, and all higher
bodies are virtually invulnerable, and definitely cannot be
destroyed or killed.
But it is possible to suffer energetic damage
and weakness through intense or prolonged attack by the stronger and
more intelligent types of nonphysical entities.
Cases of this are extremely rare, but if the energetic substance of
a projected double became damaged, this damage could reflect back
into its physical body. In this case, the physical body could
experience unusual tiredness. Even more rarely, swellings, rashes,
and strange marks could also appear on the physical body. These are
much like the swellings, watery blisters, and rashes that are an
occasional side effect of energetic development work (see chapter
13), especially during the early stages when energetic pathways are
being cleared and conditioned. All these symptoms heal unusually
quickly, often disappearing within just a few hours. The energy body
heals and restores itself very quickly if its substance is disturbed
or damaged in any way.
Any significant attack causing energy substance loss in the
projected double has a fail-safe side effect. It causes the
immediate abortion of that projection as a reflex action.
is a delicately balanced process involving a constant two-way
energetic-cum-telepathic exchange between the physical body and its
projected double. It does not take much to interfere with this
process and cause it to abort, resulting in the immediate return of
the projected double to the safety of its physical body.
Please keep in mind here that attacks, and especially attacks
causing actual energetic damage or substance loss, are rare in the
extreme and not something to overly worry about. The risk is roughly
equivalent to a recreational swimmer being seriously injured by
dangerous marine life. For the average swimmer, injuries are fairly
rare events, with the biggest danger being nothing more than an
occasional jellyfish sting.
Professionals and deep-sea divers,
however, spend a great deal more time in unexplored and untamed
ocean depths, and thus face a slightly greater risk of harm than do
recreational swimmers. This also applies to frequent projectors,
especially those with a natural propensity for the more occult and
metaphysical aspects of out-of-body exploration. Lastly, this also
applies to the more experienced projectors who actively help people
suffering from psychic attacks and other such entity-related
To the best of my knowledge, if projectors mind their own business,
stay calm, use common sense, and project away if they ever find
themselves in a bad situation, they have very little to worry about.
Out of all the thousands of projection-related case histories I have
been consulted on, I have only come across a very small handful of
situations where really troublesome astral wildlife were involved.
In the majority of these cases, once this situation was confronted
with a braver and more positive attitude, the problem entities,
whether real or imagined, simply vanished.
