Easy Methods of Astral Projection

Disciple: Master, how many planets does our solar system have?

Samael Aun Weor: There are thirteen planets, which are Earth, one; Mercury, two; Venus, three; Sun, four; Mars, five; Jupiter, six; Saturn, seven; Uranus, eight; Neptune, nine; Pluto, ten; Vulcan, eleven; Persephone, twelve; Clarion, thirteen. There are thirteen planets, thirteen worlds; that is why we speak of the thirteen heavens of Anahuac. The thirteen heavens were known in the great Tenochtitlan.

Disciple: What cultural level is the Aryan root race going to reach, compared to the Lemurian and Atlantis root races, for example?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, I wish we had even reached the upper level of the Atlanteans or the Lemurians. Actually, our beloved Aryan race is indeed the most degenerate of all races.

Disciple: Of the five root races?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, of the five root races that there have been, the most degenerate has been this one.

Disciple: The Aryan root race?

Samael Aun Weor: It is the current one, it is the fifth root race, which is ours. We are Aryans. And our Aryan root race has never had a more marvelous civilization than the Atlanteans had; or has never had a civilization like that of the Lemurians. So, this is the most barbaric root race, the most degenerate.

Disciple: Master, why have you never traveled outside the earth world?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, with this physical body outside planet earth, no; but outside the physical body, because there are other ways to travel.

Disciple: Excuse my question, how is it that you have reached such a wide capacity about the knowledge of other worlds? Your life, your community, your way of living?

Samael Aun Weor: That is why I tell you: I have not traveled with the physical body, but I have traveled with the astral body. Because the astral body is a wonderful organism, and when one learns to projected it from within the great sympathetic nervous system, one can use it to travel to other planets, consciously and positively.

With that vehicle I can travel to any other planet in the solar system. And I am allowed to travel throughout the galaxy; but it is only possible for me to reach the central sun Sirius. With the astral body I have tried to pass beyond Sirius, but they have not allowed me; whenever I try, they make me go back to Sirius. Sirius is the capital of our galaxy; around the sun Sirius revolves the entire milky way. I know Sirius...

And if you learned, let's say, to travel outside the physical body, you would be convinced of how extraordinary that is. Outside the physical body one can, with an astral body, travel to any planet in the starry space.

Disciple: Is Sirius the sun that illuminates us?

Samael Aun Weor: Sirius is the capital of this galaxy.

Disciple: The capital of the Milky Way?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, the Milky Way, which has many billions of worlds; but Sirius is a gigantic, voluminous world; it is nothing less than the center of gravity of the entire galaxy. Just think how big Sirius will have to be the center of gravity of an entire galaxy.

It is a "monster" of space, and around Sirius revolves a moon five thousand times denser than lead. That moon is huge, thousands of times bigger than the earth... five thousand times denser than lead.

From the central sun Sirius come radiations that reach all the supra-heavens of the galaxy, and from that moon so black, so dense, that revolves around Sirius, come radiations that are assimilated by all the infra-infernos of this great galaxy, from the Milky Way.

Disciple: Are these astral voyages always made, carried out or achieved out when the physical body is in relaxation?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, astral travel is done when the physical body sleeps, but you have to know how to leave the physical body at will. If you pay a little attention, you can learn, right? There are methods to project the astral body.

One of them is, for example, to observe (for a certain time), the transition state between wakefulness and sleep. If one dedicates oneself to observing that transition state, one discovers the "escape door". One has to do it for a while. When one knows that "escape door", one can get out at will by using that "door".

For the effect, you will have to relax your body well: arms, legs, the whole body in general well relaxed, so that no muscle remains in tension. Then, you will have to pronounce a mantra ("mantra" is an Asian term, rather oriental, which indicates or is synonymous with "magic word"). For example, the word “Faraon” is used for astral unfolding; but you have to divide that word into three syllables: fa-ra-on. One meditates on that word during the moment when the body is relaxed and falling asleep at will.

And then, very gently, first of all you have to get your legs out, get them out of your bed. Then, in doing so, one must not identify oneself with the physical body, rather one should feel oneself being all spirit, vaporous, not identifying with the physical body. Of course, when one takes out the legs, be sure that one takes out the astral legs; these actually come out of the body and remain on the floor.

Then sit up gently, but in doing so one must feel oneself to be spirit. And then stand up, but in doing so, feel like a spirit; and then look to see what was left on the bed. When you look, you will see the body there, lying on the bed. Many are scared by the experiment, they get scared and...

Disciple: Does one see the body lying down, asleep, relaxed?

Samael Aun Weor: One sees it in the form that has left it. If you left it lying down, you see it lying down. If you get out of a car and then look from the outside to see what is left on the street, in the "road" of the street, well, the car. Likewise, if you get out of the body and then look to see what was left on the bed, you will see your body; that's clear.

Already being out of the body, then one can manage to travel wherever one wants. One can even levitate in the atmosphere and go to any other planet in the solar system... This experiment is interesting...

Disciple: That is done mentally, without considering speed or time, right? That is, you lose track of time and space, right?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, this is not a mental journey. The mental voyage is different, no! I am not talking about mental travel, but about astral projection. Astral body projection is a very interesting journey.

All this that I have explained to you: the technique that allows one to do what is called “projection”, that is, to leave the body at will, is simple; but what I am saying must be interpreted, let's say, with facts, not mentally, but with facts: if I tell you that you have to take your astral legs out of your physicality, then you have to take them out; If I tell you to sit, then you have to sit, and if I tell you to stand, then you have to do that.

Disciple: It's like someone who is going to learn to drive a car: one needs to get in and drive it in order to know...

Samael Aun Weor: That is clear: do it with facts, with facts!...

Disciple: It is preferable that the physical body is not disturbed in those moments?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, it is preferable. Because if when you are doing the experiment (and it turns out that you have a wife), and your wife at that moment comes and grabs your hand or throws your arm on you like that, well, of course, being in the middle of the experiment, you instantly return to your physical body.

So, then, husband and wife, should lie down, well, one on one side of the bed and the other on the other side, to be able to do the experiment. Otherwise, how would the experiment be done?

Disciple: Can they both travel together, at the same time?

Samael Aun Weor: That is done when you are already practical. For example, my wife and I: when we want to go out, we go out; we can go out together, go anywhere in the world, or in the universe. And if we have been talking about what we have seen and heard, we can come slowly; when returning to the body after making a trip, we can come talking through space and enter each one inside our body, and here, in flesh and blood, we continue the talk without any interruption. But that is when one is already practical, right? You have to take practice...

Disciple: How many times have you done it?

Samael Aun Weor: Huh? Well, that's normal, like the onion for you or the potato, or the vegetable soup, which is so tasty. For us that is normal; between us we don't even comment on that anymore; that is as common as onions for you, or garlic...

Disciple: Master, but there is no risk of staying up above?

Samael Aun Weor: What? "Shuffle them for me more slowly"...

Disciple: Risk of not returning into your physical body...

Samael Aun Weor: Instead, staying over there, on the other side? Well, that is serious!, you know? That is already a cemetery issue...

Disciple: Master, once I was practicing, before I was reading your book... ...I concentrated so much that I managed to get out... ...because I saw myself, I saw my body, I saw myself... body… yet it scared me..., it was about when that movie came on, "the exorcist"...

Samael Aun Weor: Well, you know what? This is how all you earthlings are!

Disciple: But that scared me, because I saw myself, but I said to myself: “I might be dreaming”. But I was aware that I was sleeping...

Samael Aun Weor: This is how the earthling psyche is one hundred percent! Like that man from Puerto Rico: he sent radio waves everywhere, saying that he wanted to meet aliens, for them to visit him. Then, it so happened that one of those many days, he heard noises on the roof of the radio station. He went up the stairs to see what was going on: and he saw a huge cosmic ship there, on a steel tripod and some aliens heading towards him, then scared he ran, screaming, all over the street! So, this how the earthlings are! So, all earthlings are like that!

Disciple: I was afraid because I had no notions of astral projection; I didn't know... ...nonetheless, I made it, I made it...

Samael Aun Weor: With faculties, you have, faculties, but with the psyche of an earthling. Why did astral projection not hurt me?

Disciple: By the time I get to where you are right now...

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, it's easy, getting out of the body is easy!

Disciple: Me, because of not having notions of astral projection. I thought that... ...the bodies...

Samael Aun Weor: It's so easy! All you have to do is wait for the transition between wakefulness and sleep to come; to be "checking", "checking" there that state of transition. When one begins to have dreams and things typical of dreams, then, gently, lower your legs, sit gently, feeling you are a spirit, stand up and then look again, and if you see the body in bed, it is sign that it is already in the astral. All you have to do is go out the door, and if you want to float in space, you can float, and go to another planet of the infinite, etc.

Disciple: Can you ask a special person, to help you?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, what more help can we get than the help of our Father who is in secret? One must ask one’s Father, who is in secret, to take him where he best suits...

Disciple: And is the sun where the pleasure of... ... is really perceived?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, it depends on the person. There are people who are not excited about anything.

Disciple: Do you satisfy their enthusiasm, their curiosity, their... ...?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, this is more divine than a material journey...

Disciple: ...

Samael Aun Weor: can float on the waters of the sea; one can sink if you want to sink; one submerges in the waters and feels a delicious pleasure. Walking on through the bottom of the ocean, how many wonders are there? One can recreate contemplating so many wonders at the bottom of an ocean of Venus, or of Sirius. The doors of the infinite are clear, are opened to one, the pleasure is extraordinary; that happiness has no limits or shores.

Disciple: Nice, really?

Samael Aun Weor: Well yes...

Disciple: That knowledge that you want in that Sun is..., how is that knowledge captured? Well, you know... well how do I go to such a place... How do you know where it is?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, simply, because there is a telepathic sense that allows one to fully orient oneself.

Disciple: But how does telepathy say to one...?

Samael Aun Weor: Here [physically] one has to orient oneself with a simple compass, and if it fails, "one lost one’s way." But, outside the physical body, there is a telepathic sense that allows one to orient oneself with mathematical exactness, which never fails one. So, traveling outside the physical body, well, is something delectable...

Disciple: One really has more knowledge of things than one thinks one has, right?

Samael Aun Weor: It is that within us there are wonders, but wonders that have to be known; one has to investigate oneself to know them. It is well worth it, then, to learn to leave the body at will because everyone leaves the body, but asleep, dreaming. The interesting thing is to go out at will.

Disciple: So, when people are dreaming, are they really living things?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, but they are, let's say, unconscious...

Disciple: Exactly!... ...right?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, there they are unconscious, dreaming. The interesting thing is to take advantage of the moment of transition between wakefulness and sleep to leave the physical body at will, that is what is interesting: to leave at will!

One can also find, outside the physical body, the relatives who have died a long time ago, their relatives, friends, brothers, etc., and one finds them there retentive; one can talk with them and everything, all those people live. Because those deceased, it turns out that they are more alive than oneself, and when one asks them, "Well, but didn't you die so long ago?"

"No, I'm not dead, I'm alive. Why do you say that I died? I'm alive, don't you see me?" And there is nothing left for one but to shut up. What else? They are very alive! And one who believed them so dead, and they are alive...

Disciple: So there, the body dies and... It's just a costume change, isn't it? Because the dead have a body like this...

Samael Aun Weor: Well, that's the... ...let's say like the shroud there...

Disciple: one took off the dress, the clothes...

Samael Aun Weor: ...the "little outfit" that one leaves behind, that's the least important thing. What is more important is the psyche, what one carries inside...

Well, by the way, a very interesting case happened to us here now, in the patriarchal seat. It turns out that a younger gnostic brother (who was a missionary, by the way) took to walking a tightrope. He climbed onto the roof of the patriarchal seat; then he decided to hang down to get through a window (he did pirouettes, there as a tightrope walker); he trusted a lot in a brick that was there and he stood on the brick (below was the patio), and the brick, well, had to break, how was it going to hold; that logical with the weight of him. He went down. 

Fortunately, he did not disincarnate instantly, because it would have created a problem for all of us. He managed to call the red cross; he gave... ...his full statement to the authorities; He talked about his flip-flops, how the brick had failed him and how he had gone down...

Fortunately, thank God! If not, they would have investigated all of us... ...well, conclusion: well, we've already managed to get out of the whole problem; we woke him right there in a hall of the institution. Then we made a human chain around the corpse to help him (the disembodied soul).

However, something unusual happened in the chain: a gnostic sister who was there began to shake. I said: "Well, this is turning really serious"...

Suddenly, we realized that the disembodied soul of the deceased had gotten into the body of that gnostic sister... ...and the little brother’s soul didn't want to get out…

He told us:, "O Samael!" he addressed me, "Death, how terrible is death! I am in the hands of Proserpina," he said, "the queen Coatlicue, the queen of hell and death! Help me Samael!"

I told him, "Man, why are you afraid of death? You don't have to fear death, if that's natural."

Then he began to recite mantras...

I told him, "But who are you exorcising, man? There is no need for that. You already left the body" I told him, "thus, don't be afraid..."

He said, "I want to return quickly in a new body!"

"Yes, you will be given a new body, but you have to be patient, wait a bit. Fear not..."

He said, "I want you to take me to Egypt!"

I told him, "Well, brother I'm going to take you to Egypt." And certainly, I asked my inner god to take care of taking him to Egypt, and he did. Then, we took advantage of that moment when he arrived in Egypt and prostrated himself before the sphinx of the desert, so, we took advantage of it to wake up, as soon as possible, that little gnostic sister, we poured water on her face, we exorcised her, we shook her, she came to herself, the little sister was well and free already from the disembodied soul...

We had the lid of the coffin open and put the sword over the head of the physical body of the deceased, ordering him not to bother, to leave the people alone. The vibration passed through the silver cord, reached that disembodied soul and everything, and no more problems arose...

Disciple: And do you know where he came back?

Samael Aun Weor: He still hasn't returned. He is asking for a body, but God knows that he will have to wait a little bit, because it turns out that he himself is responsible for losing his body. He took to doing the ropewalker, he got into playing the ropewalker and behold that was the outcome. That thing about getting up on the roof, letting yourself be lowered down there to get into a room through a window, and fifty thousand things like that... Later they told me that that little brother had that habit: he was always a tightrope walker, right? Until finally he disincarnated, because doing the "monkey business" ..., he did like the "monkey acrobatics". A problem...

Now yes, my friends, I say goodbye, because it is time to go to rest. what time is it?

Disciple: 11: 25 p.m....

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, here this lady is beginning to reconcile her sweet sleep.
