I have always wanted to project astrally at will, ever since a child. Yet now as an adult and seeing in Sameal Aun Weor's writings how important it is for the purpose of getting master-taught classes in the fourth dimension, I am all the more concerned that I have not been able to astrally project yet. One explanation for this difficulty which I am aware Samael has provided us is that people who have been developing their minds have more trouble projecting at will. This bit of information is not that comforting to me. My dear friends, before I knew that there was anything higher than the mind, I was so intent on developing mine as much as I possibly can. So... Problem thereof.
The method most often asserted by our master Samael, as far as I understand it, is that one is to get up physically out of bed just on the brink of falling asleep and to jump up, hoping to float if projection has been achieved. The other method I am aware of from our master is the prayer at the brink of falling asleep, "To the little heaven, Philip, to the little heaven", if I recall this line from it correctly.
I have a big problem of going out like a light as soon as I lay down to sleep. The borderline or twilight period between waning wakefulness and the coming of sleep is so short for me that it is really nonexistent. That in-between period of time is truly without any duration for me, I pass instantly from awake to asleep.
I am looking for a solution to be able to astrally project at will, please. Help.
I have heard on some radio show discussion, to which I do not know if I can give credibility until I check with the Gnostic teachers here, that it is possible somehow for one person to "take another person by the hand, astrally". Those were the words that were used to describe it. Can I entertain any hope in being helped in this way to learn to astrally project at will, please? Can I perhaps receive such kind of direct help from someone more advanced if I were to attend a Gnostic retreat, perhaps, with this intention of mine being pre-announced and understood as being pre-intended for the particular retreat to which I would go?
(I am not very moneyed and so I would have to gather money for the rest of the year to be able to go to the nearest Gnostic retreat in the next calendar year, and I believe the nearest location would be in Nebraska, whereby I live in Chicago. )
It would be so comforting and hopeful for me to know if I can be helped by someone in some way that would lead to success in this. Again, please help.
Thank you so much for reading. Thank you for this forum existing. And thank you in advance in anticipation of your reply.
