Okay so I recently uploaded a podcast about my latest theory in regards to lucid dreaming and astral projection. In a previous blog I wrote on how I think they are essentially the same, but thought that the approach was different. Anyway, as I like to keep an open mind throughout this journey and with that said – my thoughts have changed about this subject.
I can’t remember but in a recent blog or podcast I mentioned that there are three factors in which I believe that will affect your experience:
- how conscious are you?
- are you a point of light or do you have a fully formed astral body?
- where are you on the astral?
After further research and looking at this clairvoyantly, I think that I am missing another factor:
- Are you in a dream?
Regardless of lucid dreaming or astral projection, I have always thought you were out of body, but now I do see more of a difference between these two and that is the last factor – are you in a dream?
What I think is that when you are leaving your body to go dream, you generate a dream through intention which then forms into a mental image picture and then once you are out onto the astral it manifests into a dream. I think with lucid dreaming, you are simply just aware you are in a dream, but perhaps not fully conscious that you are in a dream ON the astral. So of course this goes back to the first factor.
I imagine though the experience of being in a dream on the astral vs just being out on the astral is a different experience. The interesting thing here is that while you are in a lucid dream, what if you just dissolve the dream and end up on the astral? Some people report using lucid dreams to go back to their body during sleep paralysis then relaunch into the astral. I have also heard of someone being in a lucid dream and just ending or dissolving the dream to just be out on the astral.
Anyway, these are my latest thoughts on these subjects. I will continue to keep an open mind throughout this journey as i gain more experience, do more research and look at it all clairvoyantly.
