Astral Projection is one of those things that most people would love to do. Who would not like to be able to detach from the physical body and travel to distant places, discover amazing worlds and learn the answers to many of the questions that they might have. Indeed the Out of Body Experience allows you to know that there is more to you than the physical body. It can expand your creativity and conscious awareness, and it can even lessen the fear of death. Unfortunately many become highly disappointed when they try technique after technique without any positive results. It is not surprising then that most think that Out of Body Experiences are very difficult to achieve. Certainly, after participating in arduous physical and mental Out of Body techniques that rely on trying to maintain postures that make your body ache, chants that make your throat sore, or highly boring meditative routines that are only successful at making you fall asleep, people can't be blamed for thinking that Astral Travel is impossible. The thing is though that Out of Body Experiences are part of our natural heritage as human being, and as such they are within the realm of possibility for all of us. In this book you will not be asked to wake up in your dreams even though you are never really told how to consistently achieve this difficult task. You won't be asked to set your alarm to wake in the middle of the night, and keep some odd sleeping schedule that is only successful at wrecking a good night's sleep. This book will not demand that you feel the energy vibrations within your body and project these vibrations outside of yourself, without ever mentioning that such energy work can take a long time to master. The techniques in this book are easy, natural, and can be done by anyone. They are easy to implement because they use the natural tendencies of human consciousness, they work with the natural flow of consciousness instead of against it. In this book you will find out how to: -Quickly and easily initiate Out of Body travel -Consciously participate in Astral Travel and Lucid Dreaming -Create and solidify an Astral/Double body -Develop Energetic Containment so that you can travel anywhere you want safely You will also learn about: -The different worlds that you can access in the Out of Body state -The type of beings that you can encounter -Ways to deal with and overcome the limitations of the ego/self

All life is a continuous movement forward in all possible directions of development. It seems that the topic of this book globally and ideally fits into this rule because it can lead us to a completely different level of existence. It is especially worthwhile to immediately understand that in this book you will not find mysticism and esotericism. This book is only about the practice and what can be proved to any adequate person, based solely on a sober mind and a more scientific approach than on unexplained facts. The book is designed for a pragmatist and a person far from miracles. Naturally, a person with esoteric interests will see here a different view of things, which are usually given a completely different explanation. Only now he will receive real practice, far from the usual theories and extremely subjective experiences.This phenomenon itself has many applications in life, of which you first learn only from this book. In it, I tried to describe as broadly and fully as possible the entire spectrum of all kinds of things related to this phenomenon. It would seem to someone that, with an undeniable opportunity, this is difficult to learn. This is far from the case. In fact, it is simple if you know what, how and when to do, about which, by the way, almost a third of this book.At its core, "out-of-body" sensations are far more overwhelming than you can even imagine. Leaving there, you take away all the sensations with you and only remember that you exist here. These experiences are also and even more real than those that are now in front of your eyes, that is, there is a clear feeling of full presence in real events, which nothing else can give at the moment. This phenomenon is so vivid in all respects, so real in essence and so limitless that I can only worry about the fact that my meagre language and experience of expressing thoughts were not enough to convey the scale of the phenomenon. Whatever opinion you have after reading this book, it certainly will not correspond to the knowledge and understanding that I would like to convey, and which correspond to reality. Everything is much more serious.

Throughout history, people have reported spiritual experiences that we now identify as out-of-body experiences or OBEs. In recent times, modern researchers like Robert Monroe have pioneered the scientific study and practice of OBEs. Increasingly, people are remembering spontaneous OBEs, especially from early childhood. Also, OBEs are a typical feature of near-death experiences and have been described as beautiful, painless, and ecstatic. This is the comprehensive manual for inducing out of body experiences and managing the experience. Peterson not only explores the stages of his own development, but also concludes each chapter with a specific exercise that takes you to the next level. From wiggling out of your body for the first time (the author did a back flip his first time) to traveling through other realms and dealing with your "encounters,", this is one of the most practical, step-by-step guides to OBEs available. He clearly demonstrates how this consciousness-expanding experience is accessible to anyone willing to make the leap into the great beyond. This is the ultimate manual on how to leave home alone....

Have ever an Astral Projection took place on your body? Would you like to experience this type of separation between body and spirit? Also called Astral Travel, the expression Astral projection refers to an "Out of Body Experience" (also called OBE) during which the astral body leaves the physical body and travels to the "astral plane". It can occur naturally, as part of the sleep process, or it can be performed through lucid dreaming or deep meditation. Basically, the concept of astral projection hinges on the belief that there is something called an "astral plane," and that it is one of the seven planes of being, and humans generally live on the material plane. The mythicized "astral plane" is considered to be the home of not only souls finding their way to their their next life or final resting place, but also angels and spirits that are more than human. Astral projection is the personal gateway into the realms of the consciousness exploration. Would you like to bring more serenity, open-mindedness and intuition to your life thanks to the Third Eye? When your Third Eye is open, you'll experience clear insight, open-mindedness, intellectual balance, and a strong connection to your intuition or inner wisdom. However, if your third eye is blocked or constricted, you'll struggle with narrow-mindedness, overthinking, insomnia, suffocating beliefs, lack of purpose, depression, and an inability to connect with your Soul. But what actually is the Third Eye? The pineal gland, is a pea-sized gland shaped like a pine cone, located in the vertebrate brain near the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Also known as the third eye, it is a revered tool of seers and mystics and considered to be the organ of supreme universal connection. Through an open and vibrant third eye, the highest source of ethereal energy may enter. Your third eye is your gateway to the divine realm. A list of the benefits and abilities the Third Eye brings include clarity, concentration, perspicuity, bliss, intuition, decisiveness and insight. The third eye has been also linked to lucid dreaming, astral projection, quality of sleep, enhanced imagination and aura viewing. By the time you will read the book you'll learn: opening the Third Eye for the first time: experiences and how to use it the nine steps that you need to do to increase your clairvoyance power ten fascinating facts about the Pineal gland tips to develop and strengthen your psychic awareness lowering stress levels and anxiety how to take off remaining conscious and remembering your astral experience prepare your mind and body for the experience meditation and hypnosis being out of the body for the first time (what you could find) best Astral Projection techniques ...and much more! ...and much more!

The greatest human problem is that we are all born in the condemned cell. Money and medical science can extend the human lifespan significantly — perhaps up to one thousand years via cloning and cryogenics — but in the end, when the last medical miracle has been exhausted, Death still waits patiently for us. In Death: The Final Mystery, Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe take their investigative skills to those last moments of life and beyond, exploring such puzzling topics as near-death and out-of-body experiences, reincarnation theories, hypno-regression, and automatic writing and other phenomena of the séance room. Evidence is drawn from trance mediums, the writings of mystics, and clear, hard facts reported by reliable eyewitnesses.

Consciousness is undoubtedly one of the last remaining scientific mysteries and hence one of the greatest contemporary scientific challenges. How does the brain's activity result in the rich phenomenology that characterizes our waking life? Are animals conscious? Why did consciousness evolve? How does science proceed to answer such questions? Can we define what consciousness is? Can we measure it? Can we use experimental results to further our understanding of disorders of consciousness, such as those seen in schizophrenia, delirium, or altered states of consciousness? These questions are at the heart of contemporary research in the domain. Answering them requires a fundamentally interdisciplinary approach that engages not only philosophers, but also neuroscientists and psychologists in a joint effort to develop novel approaches that reflect both the stunning recent advances in imaging methods as well as the continuing refinement of our concepts of consciousness. In this light, the Oxford Companion to Consciousness is the most complete authoritative survey of contemporary research on consciousness. Five years in the making and including over 250 concise entries written by leaders in the field, the volume covers both fundamental knowledge as well as more recent advances in this rapidly changing domain. Structured as an easy-to-use dictionary and extensively cross-referenced, the Companion offers contributions from philosophy of mind to neuroscience, from experimental psychology to clinical findings, so reflecting the profoundly interdisciplinary nature of the domain. Particular care has been taken to ensure that each of the entries is accessible to the general reader and that the overall volume represents a comprehensive snapshot of the contemporary study of consciousness. The result is a unique compendium that will prove indispensable to anyone interested in consciousness, from beginning students wishing to clarify a concept to professional consciousness researchers looking for the best characterization of a particular phenomenon.

My Big TOE, written by a nuclear physicist in the language of contemporary Western culture, unifies science and philosophy, physics and metaphysics, mind and matter, purpose and meaning, the normal and the paranormal. The entirety of human experience (mind, body, and spirit) including both our objective and subjective worlds, are brought together under one seamless scientific understanding. If you have a logical, open, and inquisitive mind - an attitude of scientific pragmatism that appreciates the elegance of fundamental truth and the thrill of breakthrough - you will enjoy this journey of personal and scientific discovery. Based upon careful scientific research and logical deduction, this is a book for all who have an interest in the nature of the reality in which they exist. My Big TOE is not only about scientific theory, function, process, and discovery - but also speaks to each individual reader about their innate capabilities. Readers will learn to appreciate that their human potential stretches far beyond the limitations of the physical universe. This trilogy delivers the next major scientific conceptual breakthrough since relativity and quantum mechanics raised scientific eyebrows in the first half of the twentieth century. No catch, no megalomania, no hypothetical wackiness, no goofy beliefs, no unusual assumptions - just straightforward science that better describes the totality of our experience and provides a wealth of practical results and new understanding that can be applied personally and professionally by scientists and nonscientists alike. This is the real thing. My Big TOE is about life, purpose, personal significance, physics, evolution, and the reason why. The acronym "TOE" is a standard term in the physics community that stands for "Theory Of Everything." Such a theory has been the "Holy Grail" of physicists for more than fifty years. My Big TOE delivers the solution to that scientific quest at the layman's level with precision and clarity. This book is an adventure into the overlapping worlds of science, philosophy, and metaphysics. It is tightly analytical and logical as all good works of science and philosophy should be, while at the same time down to earth, easily understandable, and full of good humor. No leaps of faith or beliefs of any sort are required to get to where these books will take you. Campbell did not put the "My" in My Big TOE to flaunt pride of authorship. Nor does the "My" indicate any lack of generality or applicability to others. The "My" was added to be a constant reminder to you that this reality model cannot serve as your personal Big TOE until it is based upon your personal experience. On the other hand, personal or subjective experience is only one piece of the reality puzzle. In the objective physical world of traditional science, My Big TOE delivers a comprehensive model of reality that subsumes modern science, describes our objective material reality, and is universally applicable. Contemporary physics is shown to be a special case of a more general set of basic principles.Physics is in the business of modeling reality. General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and currently String Theory have all unsuccessfully tried to produce an overarching model of our objective reality. In the physics community, these one-theory-explains-all reality models are called TOEs. This particular TOE is Big because it successfully integrates metaphysics and physics into a single unified big-picture view of our larger reality. The My Big TOE trilogy provides a rational, logically consistent Theory Of Everything, develops the required new paradigms to support that theory, constructs a solid scientific foundation for future explorations to be built upon, and explains the interfaces and connections between newly derived knowledge and the existing database of scientific and personal experience. It subsumes physics, redeems philosophy, and explains many objective as well as subjective phenomena. Within My Big TOE, the physical universe and consciousness are fully integrated into a single scientific, tightly logical exposition that encompasses the subjective as well as the objective, the normal as well as the paranormal, the whole of your experience body, mind, and spirit. The My Big TOE reality model will help you understand your life, your purpose, all of the reality you experience, how that reality works, and how you might interact most profitably with it.The author, in addition to his ongoing career in a traditional hard science, spent almost thirty years carefully researching altered states of consciousness both in and out of formal laboratory settings. With one foot in the world of physics and the other firmly planted in the scientific exploration of consciousness, Campbell is in a unique position to accomplish the synthesis required to bring all the disparate pieces of science together into a coherent scientific whole. My Big TOE is the result of this unusual dual career in both physics and parapsychology. Most readers find these books to be non-technical, lively, full of humor and good fun, as well as personally challenging and enlightening. The My Big TOE trilogy is hard hitting, personal, controversial, and full of new ways of viewing familiar things. It will make you laugh, wince, and reconsider what you thought you knew about almost everything. This book is guaranteed to annoy, anger, and offend some, as well as illuminate and emancipate others. It will turn your personal reality upside down and inside out as it unites mind, body, and spirit in one overarching scientific model. Our objective physical reality is shown to be just one piece of the larger puzzle of existence. This reality model provides a sound theoretical basis for understanding many of the scientific, technical, and philosophical enigmas that have been nagging at the minds of scientists and scholars for decades. Even more importantly, My Big TOE provides the scientific basis for finally answering many of the most unfathomable and pressing personal questions that have challenged human understanding since time immemorial since men and women first stared into a starlit sky and wondered who and why they were. After reading My Big TOE, one will understand both the universal and the personal (subjective) nature of consciousness, reality, and Big TOEs. One will learn to appreciate the fact that the larger reality extends beyond objective causality, beyond the reach of purely intellectual effort, into the personal subjective mind of each individual. The concepts in this book will initiate, and be the catalyst for, serious scientific and philosophical discussions in the fields of psychology, physics, philosophy, mathematics, evolution, and biology, as well as religion, theology, metaphysics, ontology, epistemology, and cosmology. The author chooses to first publish these ground breaking concepts in a trade publication rather than a technical journal because of their potential importance to every individual, and because the nature of the material (like Darwins theory of evolution, for example) requires broad explanations spanning multiple academic disciplines. Because this material must develop entirely new scientific and reality paradigms, it requires a substantial intellectual and logical presentation to shed light upon the limitations of normal culturally habituated patterns of thought a goal that cannot be reached both quickly and effectively. This journey will take you to the beginning of time. It will dive deeply into the human heart as well as probe the limits of the human mind. My Big TOE will redefine the significance of you, and provide new meaning to your existence. It will help you realize and optimize your potential as well as provide you with a wholly new, fully integrated, scientific understanding of both your inside and outside world. My Big TOE, written by a scientist from a Western technological viewp

By establishing a dialogue in which the meditative practices of Buddhism and Christianity speak to the theories of modern philosophy and science, B. Alan Wallace reveals the theoretical similarities underlying these disparate disciplines and their unified approach to making sense of the objective world. Wallace begins by exploring the relationship between Christian and Buddhist meditative practices. He outlines a sequence of meditations the reader can undertake, showing that, though Buddhism and Christianity differ in their belief systems, their methods of cognitive inquiry provide similar insight into the nature and origins of consciousness. From this convergence Wallace then connects the approaches of contemporary cognitive science, quantum mechanics, and the philosophy of the mind. He links Buddhist and Christian views to the provocative philosophical theories of Hilary Putnam, Charles Taylor, and Bas van Fraassen, and he seamlessly incorporates the work of such physicists as Anton Zeilinger, John Wheeler, and Stephen Hawking. Combining a concrete analysis of conceptions of consciousness with a guide to cultivating mindfulness and profound contemplative practice, Wallace takes the scientific and intellectual mapping of the mind in exciting new directions.
