How to Astral Project, or enter the Sub-conscious Realm of the Imagination
The 20th Century psychologist Carl Jung believed the unconscious minds of all beings were connected and that they contained all of the imagery of history, prehistory, of myths and legends. It was further his belief that the contents of the subconscious minds formed the basis for man's psyche, and were therefore archetypal. Previously, the map of the subconscious had been drawn up by the grandfather of psychology Dr. Sigmund Freud, in the latter half of the 19th Century. He warned of the dangers resulting from close interaction with the subconscious mind, due to the fact that it contained all of mankind's irrational impulses. This opinion is contested by the writings of William Blake, who referred to the Unconscious as the Imagination, and invited people to dive in.
Television subjugates the imagination. Without the use of this imagination - in the fullest sense of that word - the average person loses faith in themselves and in reality, as doubts and fears crowd the mind. TV does not destroy the imagination, such a thing is impossible. It can only suppress it making people forget that they ever had its use.
Sigmund Freud's belief that the subconscious mind was somehow dangerous was a great influenced on his nephew Edward Bernays. Bernays was responsible for trying to limit people's interaction with their subconscious to try to engender a more cohesive society, in the United States. He has in the long run been criticised for creating passive, consumerist slaves. Whatever the case, Bernay's would have, no doubt, approved as television as a medium for stifling the imagination, and therefore control mankind's 'irrational' creative urges.
2. Next, imagine that the line is actually a metal girder raised five ft above the ground and supported at either end. Now walk this in the same way.
3. Raise it 10 ft above the ground and walk it. At this point you should begin to notice a slight difference in the speed at which the ground moves relative to the girder. This is an effect that only your subconscious mind would include.
4a. Raise it to a height of 15 ft. and repeat.
4b. Continue raising the bar (by a factor of 10 ft.) until you feel ready to move onto the next step.
5. Next imagine a skyscraper made of iron girders. This skyscraper is still under construction. You take the elevator to the 50th floor.
6. Now you can walk around this environment. Pay attention to the foremen shouting orders to the workers. Watch from above as workmen weld the i-beams together.
7. Walk along a beam, and before you get to the end turn around and walk back the other way.
8. Jump off a beam and land on the next floor down.
9. Jump off the building and fly around the city.
From my own experience, I needed only to do the exercise the one time, and then after the rest period, I was able to instantly access the Subconscious Realm of the Imagination. There I met my power animal, my guide to the Astral Plane. It was a giant falcon, or Thunderbird. It flew me to the ocean at the Edge of the World. There I saw a number of jagged rocks jutting up from the water. On the largest of these was a building, resembling a public toilet from the Georgian Era. Its concrete walls were badly eroded and the sea was breaking in. I dismounted and entered into the gloomy corridor. Among the detritus of cracked mortar, I saw rats turned to stone. Their little paws broken off at the wrist. There was no doubt about it, this was the lair of Medusa and her Gorgon sisters.
