Emma Asked: The dangers of Astral Projection? How to know if you’ve encountered a demon?
Ok so, I've only astral projected once, when I was thirteen ( I am now 14) & it was the weirdest thing that had ever happened to me. I'd fallen asleep on the couch, woken up & suddenly felt these weird, electrical currents or "vibrations" that were starting at my head an gong the length of my body. I tried to call out to tell my mom ( she was in the kitchen, me the living room ) but I could only manage a weak whisper. Suddenly, it was like I was falling, or blacking out, & I had this weird, light sensation. Then all of a sudden I was walking down the what the people in my neighbourhood called the "river road" because it lined the river. It was winter , as it was also winter in "real" life , or the life my physical body was living any ways. It was very clear, crystal clear. I could even see fog from my "breathing" It was beautiful, too. Then I came back to my physical body, & the vibrating sensations had stopped for a moment… the t.v was on, and I thought maybe the t.v was causing me to have a seizure ( my mom has grand mal seizures, I'd thought for a moment that I'd inherited them or something) I reached for the remote, my arm jerked or something, and the remote crashed to the floor. My mom heard it and called out from the kitchen, I said it was OK, I'd just knocked the remote. I managed to turn the t.v. off, and then all of a sudden, I started to feel the vibrations again. ( & this was with NO concentrating or trying to feel them again) I think I'd broken out in goosebumps..I could feel my hair rising anyways. And then I became consciously aware that if I wanted to, I could make myself go back to that winter place. You know that static that appears when you rub/press on your eyes? Well, all of a sudden, that was all that I could see ( & I hadn't rubbed/pressed on my eyes) suddenly, I was falling down this black , well shaped thing. & then I was back on the road. I fell somehow, against a broken wire fence. OK, you know the tasmanian devil from bugs bunny, how fast and blurred he is when he's in one of his tornado rages?Well, from down the road, there was this blur of hands and the colour red speeding down the road at an impossible speed. When it stopped in front of me, it was this guy wearing a red sweater & a yellow scarf, who amazingly looked JUST like this guy from my school who I'd always found hot. He was smiling & offering me a hand to help me up. He was talking as well, but I can no longer remember what he was saying.
& then suddenly, I was back in my physical body & was able to get up and tell my mom what had happened. She said that the guy could've been a bad spirit, trying to take me from my physical body. I just wondered if there was any way to know if he was a demon or bad entity, & what the other dangers of astral projection were.
Not sure what astral projection is but if your worried with encountering demons, it doesnt sound good. Only God can help with not having a demon possess your body. I pray you turn from whatever this is.
The person who was from your school offering you some help up would most likely be a good or bad entity, aghost, but not a demon. Demons are much more…dark and evil. They don't look like a normal person as far as I know. But…there is the possibility he was astral projecting at the same time you were…but then again, I may be wrong.
I've done astral projection, with the help of a guide and on my own.There are dangers involved, but they have nothing to do with demons.The dangers are entirely physical and psychological.
The astral plane is very real, but it's a state of mind and not an actual place.You don't leave your body to get there, you enter your own mind.It goes on in many religions and societies, from the kung fu priests to hindu guys to the aboriginal people of North America and Australia, but most of them agree that it's not paranormal or supernatural.To them, it's as normal as breathing or sleeping.While I've never tried this, many people claim you can communicate with others without physically speaking.
The physical dangers are obvious:Dehydration, falling over, or getting hit by a bus if you choose to meditate in the middle of a street.The psychological dangers are that you can become temporarily stuck there, or unintentionally visualize something truly frightening that damages your psyche.
In the vast history of astral travel, not one person has ever been able to prove that they left their body and went to other locations – even though many agreed to try under laboratory conditions.But that's not what the original astral travelers say it's all about, so maybe some people just took the idea out of context.
