Astral Projection and the Nature of Reality by John Magnus

Astral Projection by John Magnus is all about the topic of having an “out of body experience” also known as an OBE or astral projection. If this is something you are interested in trying out or if you just want to know more about this topic, read my review and then go check the book out for yourself.

Book Description

” Go farther than ever before in your journeys to other realities.

Astral Projection and the Nature of Reality goes beyond preconceived notions about how to get out of the body and then back in, as well as the dimensions to which the out-of-body adventurer can travel.

Magnus starts with a brief history of astral projection and then guides the reader through a step-by-step course for reliable projection. He explains how, once out-of-body, we create our own astral world, and he offers techniques for understanding our mind and the nature of reality.

Magnus offers detailed exercises and proven techniques for:

  • reliably exiting your body
  • confronting the basic fears that can hold you back
  • taking advantage of psychic side effects
  • taming your mind
  • navigating a world in which you have the ultimate power to create
  • integrating the lessons you learn from OBEs into your everyday reality
  • replenishing your energy…and much more.

Plus, incisive journal entries of his many out-of-body adventures will convince you that it can be done and give you the inspiration to go farther than you ever thought possible.

My Thoughts

Astral Projection is not a book that you will likely read in a night (or even in a week). It is setup so that you can try out the techniques used to prepare to have an OBE and then actually have one. Most of these you would try at night before bed, so it limits how quickly you’d read through the book if doing one each night. You could of course read ahead without doing the exercises though.

Magnus does a worthy job explaining what this is all about and how if you are interested and dedicated can do this too. It may not be an easy or fast road to actually astral projecting, but it could be worth it to explore. Think of it as dreaming, but being in control and maybe actually learning something while sleeping.

The journal entries shared in the book are the author’s own experiences with OBEs are sometimes fun, always interesting, and sometimes quite strange. The astral world is quite different, and learning more about it (even if you may not be so quick to believe in it all) is fascinating.

I tried a few of the techniques featured in the book. Unfortunately, I don’t think I had an OBE. If I did, I don’t remember and it turned into just another dream (which according to Magnus is a part of the astral world too). I’ll keep trying though and hopefully I’ll remember it if I have one soon.

I recommend this book to everyone who wants to explore a new dimension right in the comfort of their own bed and also of course enjoy this type of “New Age” reading.
