Read an Excerpt
This small collection of writings offers practical guidance from the ancient, universal knowledge of awakening in the internal worlds, otherwise known as dream yoga, lucid dreaming, Astral projection, Astral travel, or out-of-body experiences (OBEs). The purpose of this book is to empower you with the understanding and skills necessary to acquire your own direct experience of the worlds that exist beyond three-dimensional matter. As such, this is a teaching of Gnosis, a Greek word which refers to knowledge that one acquires through one's own experience, as opposed to knowledge we have heard or been told. "Gnosis” is the name of a timeless and universal teaching that has been present in many times and places around the world, appearing with different names and faces, but always teaching the exact science to awaken the consciousness.
This book offers the essential instructions so that anyone, anywhere, regardless of any distinctions, may enter into their own direct knowledge of the living realities that surround us, yet remain inaccessible to the physical senses.
Although interest in this subject is growing, there are many people who have been frustrated in their attempts to have their own personal experience of the internal worlds. Reading books or attending seminars usually leaves the seeker with more questions, doubts, and contradictions. To those persons, we offer the following quote:
"We have given many clues in order to consciously travel with the Astral Body, so thousands of students have learned to travel in their Astral Body. However, we have seen in practice that those people who cannot quiet the mind, not even for an instant, who are accustomed to hopping from school to school, from lodge to lodge, always inquiring, always preoccupied, are not able to consciously Astral travel.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Aquarian Message
Therefore, understand that this is a scientific, practical, and rigorous effort of working with the consciousness. Information is only useful when it is utilized in the right way. We need Right Effort.
The average person faces two tremendous obstacles when investgating the nature of dreaming and out-of-body experiences: 1) a lack of effective methods, and 2) their own mind.
With this book in hand, you have conquered the first step: here you will find a series of exercises whose potency has been confirmed by thousands of students. These are not mere theories: they are scientific formulae that lead to exact results.
