Level 9. If you’ve stayed with us so far you are comfortably within the fringe areas of belief systems. Level 9 introduces us to the beliefs in UFO abduction (their not just here for sightseeing), the ability for consciousness to leave the body and travel (because airfare isn’t getting cheaper) and superpower ability (I always wanted X-ray vision, although it’s not appropriate to tell you why here).Astral project is an interesting belief that warrants further discussion here. Lower level WooWoos might argue that consciousness is the product of our brains. Higher level WooWoos would tend to agree that we are not our brains or even our thinking. Within each human being lies another manifestation. Some call it “spirit.” Others say “soul.” In order to accept astral projection, one must subscribe to a separation of spirit and body because in astral projection, the spirit is capable of leaving its bodily host to explore the world looking for a good time.The most popular occurrence of “astral projection” is when the body momentarily dies. Reports of seeing the operating table or the scene of the accident are common. In rare occasions, some have claimed to have mastered a formula or technique and can leave their bodies at will. This is more common from East Asian Yogis and Buddhist monks sharing information gained from astral projection experiences.
