Astral Projection with Alison Wylie
The Higher Self in Astral Projection
In this week’s article I would like to talk about contacting our higher self when out-of-body. William Buhlman describes our higher self “as the essence of consciousness existing beyond the mind and the ego personalities of man; our center point that exists beyond all density, duality, beliefs, and separation.”
‘Contacting’ is probably the wrong word to use as our hs is always around whether we realise it or not, we are constantly sent messages throughout our lives, if we use our intuition we can access them, they are not written in red across the sky but are subtle, like whispers from the beyond. Our higher self knows who we are, the lessons we need to learn and how we can help other people. For this reason I often place my trust in the higher me when I am travelling in the astral or other planes to optimize my spiritual growth.
When we have out-of-body experiences, when we travel in the astral realms or higher planes, to maximize the experience we should always have an intention set in our minds of what we want to do. Of course, sometimes an element of spontaneity can be a breath of fresh air but well, when you give the reigns to your hs there is always the element of surprise, you have no idea where you will go or what you will do.
If I am having an experience and I haven’t set an intention, or I did but have forgotten it, as sometimes happens, I say to my higher self ‘take me where I need to be’. Now if you use this method be prepared, it usually involves me suddenly being dragged off somewhere and can be rather disconcerting when you feel that you are being moved along by an unseen force. It can appear as if you have been taken up by an astral wind, in fact there has been a lot written on the subject of ‘astral winds’. This is an excerpt from ‘Astral Dynamics’ by Robert Bruce,
“The astral wind is not an uncommon event. It has been experienced and discussed by many other frequent projectors. In ‘The Projection of the Astral Body’, Muldoon and Carrington call this phenomenon “Super-Conscious Projection”, and describe it as caused by a higher intelligence, forcibly taking the projector to a higher dimensional level for obscure reasons. Muldoon mentions one such experience of his own, where he landed in a house and saw strangers whom he claims to have met in the flesh several months later.”
Robert Bruce isn’t convinced that these astral wind experiences are deliberate high-level contact but believes that they may be a natural cause. However, being taken somewhere by my hs certainly feels similar to how these winds have been described.
I do feel I should issue a warning here; your hs will indeed take you where you need to be and would never place you in any situation that you are not capable of dealing with but unless you are stressed and need a time out flying over blue seas and green valleys, don’t think it will be easy. I have used this method many times and each time has been different, sometimes they are learning situations, other times I am taken where I can help people and on rare occasions I have been taken to the very depth of my being to face some buried fear or emotion that needed to be let go. The latter are the most intense, as facing who we truly are on a very deep level can take you through a few negative emotions, but in the end these experiences have always been the most rewarding and I have become stronger because of them. I trust my hs and know that I will never be taken anywhere that is out-of-my depth.
You can also experience your hs by saying ‘Higher Self now’ while out of body as William Buhlman recommends, and of course, you don’t have to wait to have an OBE, to connect as Buhlman also writes:
“Connecting to your higher self provides a powerful way to awaken to your life’s purpose. It provides you with a constant knowing that will transcend the mind.”
Opening the channel to your hs will enhance your life, you will find many wonderful meditations on internet, choose one that you relate to and find some time every day to hang out with the inner you. Connect with your higher self and let the adventures begin.
Around the year 2000 I had my first out-of-body experience, it was the first of thousands, and the beginning of an incredible journey into self. Taking the inner path is not always easy and I had a lot of intense experiences confronting many parts of myself which I never imagined existed.
Through my out-of-body experiences I have experienced how we are so much more than we could ever conceive with our human brains. I have understood on a very deep level how everything and everyone is connected and now I wish to help people connect to who they truly are.
I have met people on the other side who have died full of regrets for not having lived fully while on Earth, for not having given all of themselves but instead getting lost in the drama and 'busyness' of physical life. I wish to help people balance their lives and really start to live, to live life consciously. I am a podcaster and run three podcasts, the Astral Projection Podcast, the Connecting the Bits Podcast plus an Italian podcast named Mente Corpo Spirito such is my desire to reach the world with my message.
