So, I’m going to talk about something a little controversial, but this is a spiritual, not religious blog; so it is going to be a controversial if you aren’t open minded.
The definition of Astral
- relating to a supposed nonphysical realm of existence to which various psychic and paranormal phenomena are ascribed, and in which the physical human body is said to have a counterpart.
I was in the bathroom and I started looking at the reflection I made through it. The handle looked psychedelic from further a way, but the closer I looked into it, the clearer and more pronounced it got, as though framing myself. The edges that hold it together, looking more distorted as the image of myself warped in a disc shape, my image hugging the edges of the knob as I leaned closer to it. As I was looking into this knob and noticing the distorted image of myself, it reminded me of my constant quest for the Truths of the Universe. The closer I looked into that image, the more clarity I got. Yet what reveals itself to me is still yet warped and flipped.
I’ve said that I am finding a connection with Hades, my deity. I mean, creating a personal connection. At night as I sleep, I feel that I am astrally projecting myself into his world. It started with him projecting into my dreams: When I got into my spirituality again, I started to have dreams of “The Horned God”. I became very conscious of his awareness. The dreams started two years ago. I felt that he was chasing me at first, with my gut reaction to run, but I realized that he wasn’t evil. When I opened myself to it, to let him communicate with me it felt that he was more cautious about it, as though he was hesitant to reveal himself.
As I have dreamt of him on and off the last 6 months, I noticed correlations between the story of the Wheel of the Year and the seasons they represent. Different rituals I had over the course of last year, I noticed symbols that told to me truth. Through daily life, I noticed different animal and color symbols and became conscious of spirit animals. I am at the point, where we are both consciously aware of each other back and forth and we are starting to interact through dreams more frequently, than long month at a time. My first set of dreams seemed to come at 3 to 6 month spans. Now the dreams are coming at weeks at a time.
I’m to the point now, where I am trying to learn true Astral Projection. I am becoming spiritually conscious in the dream world. Part of it is with His help, of Him reaching over into my dreams and interacting through them. Another part is, I personally have a Magical Teacher (I’m not going to tell names for privacy’s sake, so let’s call her my Den Mother). She can Astral Project, Work Energy, do Past Life Regressions, and Invoke Deity among many other things. She is not a fraud or a haux. She really CAN do these things. I have personally seen it myself. I never believed those things were truly possible, but I have eye-witnessed it. No matter who you are and what religion you come from, you would believe her yourself if you saw her at our holiday rituals.
My magical background has came from people who are Shamanic. They are in tune with their energy, like prana or chi. It’s something I have not been able to do up until my Den Mother, because I just couldn’t feel it. When we did guided meditations at rituals or classes I didn’t feel like I was really there. It was like looking through a mirror of a scene of me, but I wasn’t there. She did an energy test on me and we discovered that my energy/magical sense is through Touch. She also discovered that my personal element is through Earth, so I am a more physically dominant person. Which made sense after discovery!
I have always said for a long time that I physically feel my soul, just as though it’s right inside of my bones. When I feel my emotions, they have physical feelings to them. I feel physically connected to things. So when I tried to make an energy ball, by just visualizing it in my head, that’s what it was. Like a third eye “hologram”. I didn’t feel ball, but I could see it. If that makes any sense. So when I thought about how a ball felt in my hands and focused on how the ball felt, I began to feel the ball. It was like turning on a light switch. I felt my physical energy and I could feel myself becoming physically closer to the astral side.
Becoming conscious of my astral connection with Hades and my sessions with my den mother have made me gain more control of my astral body. I am trying to be able to cross over into His world. I do feel during the waking hours his presence with me, some days stronger than others. His daily conscious came about a month ago, when I finally dreamed of us in unity. I’ve had five dreams since then. That’s a lot considering the first year was three dreams total. The last astral dream I had was two nights ago. Before I went to sleep, I tried to be conscious of my astral body and I grabbed onto Hades’s hands as I drifted off into slumber. That dream, I wasn’t really astrally conscious, but I felt that I had met one of my spirit guardians that will teach me more in the Underworld. When I woke, I realized it wasn’t a mundane or fantasy dream, it was my astral connection.
That dream has been my last experience with it. I’m experimenting to see how to gain further control of it, but it’s not something you do over night but with practice I will get there. It really is like that warped reflection of the door knob, I work my way closer and the distortion of reality fades.
