The countryside was lush, sparkling with a plum blue serene from the early morning sunrise.

Atop the highest of the Vilorian Mountains, the city of Astral stood silent against the ringing of

silver trumpets from the north highlands. The travelers crossing the last of the mountains rocky

crossings took in the scene from under the fruits of a Bombaly tree, standing colossal at one

hundred meters in height. Petty fruits the size of a child’s fist lay strewn about under its

goliath canopy, dripping with ruby red nectar. The morning wind was crisp and slightly harsh, a

sign to all that the winter seasons were coming with quickness. The trail leading up to the city

was a four day expedition from the coast, and it had been a taxing journey for all in company.

From where he lingered on the edge of the vast mountain Cyril looked down upon the Port of

Themme, twenty leagues off. The brilliant light of the day lit up the ocean and surrounded all

with a dazzling view of the great maritime reefs that stretched as far as the eye could see. The

vastness of the blue ocean always seemed to enlighten Cyril when it stared up at him from the

deep, and like always, he treasured the view for a fleeting moment. But with great beauty

comes great sorrow, and at that moment the reality of the daunting mission he was on got the

better of him, turning his gaze southwards to his…...

Operational Definitions

...when an individual is staring at you or he is not staring at you. However, some evidences have proves this claim. However, there are still arguments on what aspect results to the effect. One of the major factors that can prove this claim is real practices (Sheldrake, 1994). 5. Dreams often seem as real as waking experiences because humans are composed of two bodies: a physical body and an astral body. When we dream, our astral body leaves the physical body and travels to the astral plane where the dream actually takes place. [Rampa, T. L. (1990). You forever (York Beach, ME: Samuel Weiser.] Globally, scientists have argued over the years about this claim. According to Freud, it is impossible to analyze dream because there are several stages that occur in sleep before people dream. This claim is inefficient because it has insufficient evidence to prove that human being have two bodies. In addition, the author of this claim did not prove the astral body. Therefore, this argument should have evidences that are real in order to prove the claim and the existence of the astral body (Rampa, 1990). 6. Food kept inside a structure with the shape of Cheops’s pyramid stays fresher longer than food kept outside the structure. The pyramid must serve as a lens that focuses some sort of cosmic energy onto the food. [Toth, M., Nielson, G. (1985). Pyramid power (Rochester, VT: Destiny Books.] More than a few scientists have come up with this......

...las doctrinas que suponen determinados lugares para el cielo, el purgatorio, el infierno, el limbo o sus análogos según las diversas religiones exotéricas. No admite semejantes lugares como tales lugares, pero reconoce el virtual fundamento de las enseñanzas respecto a ellos. En este volumen no trataremos de los innumerables planos de existencia manifestados en el universo, sino que nos contraeremos a considerar los planos peculiares del mundo astral en que residen las almas desencarnadas que vivieron en la tierra, y al que suele llamársele el "mundo espiritual" de la humanidad. Veremos que hay muchos planos y subplanos de existencia en el vastísimo mundo astral, así denominado en distinción del mundo físico que le es inmediatamente inferior en la escala vibratoria. Cada plano y subplano tiene sus peculiares características y fenómenos, según iremos viendo en el transcurso de nuestra exposición. Sin embargo, las mismas leyes y principios generales rigen en todos ellos. Pero antes de pasar a la consideración del mundo astral insistamos una vez más en el concepto de "plano" a fin de que no haya duda acerca de su significación. Al hablar del "ascenso" de un plano inferior a otro superior, o del "descenso" de uno superior a otro inferior, no damos a entender que se haya de "subir" o "bajar" como por una escalera, ni tampoco que se haya de pasar de una superficie a otra de diferente nivel, y aun resulta inexacto el conocido símbolo de surgir del fondo a la superficie......

The fight broke out between Hercules and the centaurs. Chiron took no part in the fight but, was accidentally wounded by Hercules. As an immortal, Chiron could not die but lived in terrible pain. Chiron then chose to trade his life for the release of Prometheus. * Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets * Astral Projection (leaving the physical body and travelling to another location or reality) Potter: “They don’t need the car” said Ron impatiently. “They know how to Apparate! You know, just vanish and reappear at home!” Astral Projection is the movement of the astral body outside the physical body while it sleeps. In astral projection, the conscious mind leaves the physical body and moves into the astral body, which in turn travels through the astral plain. The 2 difficult keys to astral project(a)”the will-less-will concept”(b)”the focus on letting body sleep and keeping the mind awake” * Curses thrown can backfire when it does, it comes right back against the witch or wizard who threw it in the first place.

Ancient Art

...The faces display smiles females were to be alluring. Possibly the mother of the gods this pillar figurine was created in large numbers in the kingdom of Judah (metmuseum.org, 2008). The Plaque or Nude Goddess Standing on Crescent was created from gold leaf over a carving of a sturdier sculpture. The Plaque was created to be e a charm for a necklace. She too is a large curvy woman her arms are bent but out to her sides as if to say she is fertile and ready to have a family. The hips are wide and curvy and the breasts are directly above the navel. Large hips and breast also represent fertility she also is wearing the headdress of the Egyptian fertility goddess Hathor. She is found in this piece standing in a crescent shape revealing her astral nature (louvre.fr, 2008). Both pieces depict goddesses dealing with family they are very similar in nature though the styles are significantly different. Gods and goddesses during the ancient times were viewed differently by each era. Some felt that beauty was held in looks while others felt that beauty was held in the eyes or feeling. The female shapes however are very similar with the large breasts and wide hips. Wide hips tend to be a sign of fertility even in modern times. Both pieces also depict large eyes and an inviting smile. Mothers must be warm and the wide eyes could show a caring nature. The Plaque wears a headdress and her arms are held up as if inviting love or she may have been holding something when originally......

Sleep Paralysis

...some sort of occult practices such as, tarot card readings, Ouija boards and channeling or meditation. There are many other ways that can open doors to these nightmares, some of them in which the person had no control of. For instance, it can be generational, if ones parents or grandparents have been involved in heavy occult rituals. This could be a father who has been initiated into the high Masonic arts, because of this, many people can experience sleep paralysis at an early age during childhood. During sleep paralysis, some people experience what is called astral projection or leaving the body. Although to the victim this may seem like he or she is doing this, but in fact it is the entity that is responsible. The entity itself is of a spiritual nature, which takes over your spiritual being, giving you the illusion that you are projecting yourself out of your physical body. Some people, who experience this astral projection, will inform others to relax and enjoy the experience. This is not good advice, because this type of behavior can lead to more spiritual attacks. Today, most medical doctors try to explain this phenomenon, by claiming that sleep paralysis is just the human body trying to protect itself from acting out your dreams. After falling into REM sleep the brain triggers nerves and muscles to shut down, giving you the feeling of being paralyzed. On the other hand, doctors cannot explain why everyone who experiences this all has similar reports of dark,......

Mystical Experience

...to the spiritual realm through nature. I walk against the wind’s current, arms out to my side, and I can feel reality slipping. Wet. Everything is wet. Sam keeps reassuring me that nothing is wet – it is all in my head. My skin is moist, and I can feel it drizzling inside the tent, although it is not even raining. All of my senses are on high alert and yet I feel on top the world when usually I would be having an anxiety attack. All of my burdens are lifted; the only thing I can feel is the electricity under my skin buzzing throughout my whole body, and a feeling in my chest to which what I would assume Christians associate to their encounters with God. I have connected with my God. My spiritual mind is on a completely different astral plane, and I hear the universe whispering to me its secrets through the brisk breeze blowing through my hair and the waxing moon illuminating the earth as if it were high definition. Psychedelic mushrooms are something that I will be definitely be doing again. The trip lasts for about four hours, and we stayed up until the next day. Coming down off shrooms is instant; I just suddenly stopped hallucinating as much. Gravity is an unbearable weight and my body is metal. It is time for bed, and all I can think about is what kind of adventure am I going to go on next time!...

...other shore you notice, that most of the island is dominated by a mighty dark castle. Before you now are the magical lands of Manala. The gates are open and you may freely explore the chambers and dungeons of the castle or the surrounding landscapes, but when you hear the bell sounding, you will know that it is time to return to the world you came from. (Keep a long break here and let the participants explore the place for themselves.) You slowly begin to feel how your astral body is drawn to your own world. When you feel that you are ready, you can return to the beach where the ferry-boat is waiting for you. Slowly begin to leave these lands and return to the world of the living, across the black river and through the forest. Leave this world behind for now, but know that you are going to return again later. (Signal the end of the meditation.) You have now returned to the temple. Your physical body is asleep, but you are gradually getting more aware of it and of the world that surrounds you. Feel how your astral body is melting together with your physical body, in perfect union. Take a few deep breaths and slowly begin to move your limbs. Whenever you feel ready, you may open your eyes.
