Akasha: The underlying energetic medium, the ether, that permeates
Akashic: From, of, or related to Akasha.
Akashic Pulse: The cosmic outpouring of The Source, during an
Akashic Pulse Episode. Also see: Akasha, Akashic Pulse Episode,
Akashic Records, Astral Wind, Consciousness Seeds, The Source.
Akashic Pulse Episode: A regular cosmic interdimensional event, the
frequency of which is unknown at this time. It begins with the
Astral Wind collecting the projected doubles of all conscious beings
in the universe, including those of sleepers, and transporting them
to the highest dimensional level for adjustment by the Source,
according to Karmic law. This event ends when the Akashic Pulse
returns everyone back to their physical bodies, all then containing
new or updated consciousness seeds. Also see: Akasha, Akashic Pulse,
Akashic Records, Astral Wind, Karma, Karmic Law, The Source,
Akashic Records: An infinite, never-ending, interdimensional,
energetic echo field, containing perpetual echo's generated by each
and every act of consciousness, in energetic form. Levels of The
Akashic Records can be accessed and perceived (viewed) in various
ways during an OBE, with the most common being the traditional
"library" scenario. While The Akashic Records are generally
considered to be a structured esoteric repository of all knowledge,
they are (according to the author) a natural, life-related,
interdimensional phenomenon, an energetic medium that can be
"accessed" and "perceived" in an "apparently" structured way. i.e.,
as containing detailed records of all past events; plus future
probabilities generated by these, that can be perceived as
"viewable" events. Past and future events can even be experienced
"first-hand" during an
OBE, with the projector entering a
record/vision and becoming an invisible spectator. Also see: Akasha,
Akashic Pulse Episode, Akashic Records, Astral Wind, Consciousness
Seeds, Karma, Karmic Law, The Source, Universal Law.
Angle of Perception: In the context of this book, meaning the way in
which a projector perceives the out-of-body environment during an
OBE, with this being particularly affected by their energetic makeup
at the time. Also see: Energetic Makeup.
Astral Body: The energetic vehicle (or projected double) used to
travel within the astral planes. Also see: Real-Time Body.
Astral Feedback: Telepathic feedback between the physical/etheric
body and its projected double. Also see: Complications Of
Consciousness, Energetic Conflicts, Mind-Split, Mind-Split Effects.
Astral Momentum: The tendency of the projected double to continue
moving after the mental/awareness action used to cause its movement
it has ceased. Also see: Awareness Momentum.
Astral Noise: A harmless but often disturbing phenomenon. This is
best described as being an auditory hallucination, where a projector
hears loud noises and even voices around them, during the prelude to
an OBE exit. Also see: Astral Sight, Astral Wildlife, Dweller On The
Astral-Plane Entrance Structure: A perception-based entrance
structure, through which the internal parts of an astral plane can
be entered. There are three main types: tube-type, plane-type and
the tunnel of light. Which type is perceived by a projector during
an OBE, is greatly affected by their energetic makeup at the time of
their projection. Also see: Angle Of Perception, Astral-Plane
Surface Skin, Energetic Makeup.
Astral Planes: The structured part of the astral dimension, which is
reputedly divided into seven distinct levels (commonly called astral
planes) with each of these containing many sub-levels and parts.
Also see: Astral-Plane Entrance Structure, Astral Realms and
Kingdoms, Astral Sub-Planes.
Astral-Plane Surface Skin: The surface skin of an astral plane. This
is an infinite, two dimensional, grid-lined structure. Its surface
is divided into neat squares, with each square having a base color
and an elaborate centerpiece pattern, repeated endlessly in every
other square. Also see: Angle Of Perception, Astral Plane Entrance
Structure, Astral Planes, Energetic Makeup.
Astral Projection: An OBE, where the projector enters and operates
within the astral dimension, or astral planes. Also see: Astral
Planes, OBE, Real-Time Projection.
Astral Realms and Kingdoms: Distinct internal parts of the astral
planes, with each having a set environment and theme. Varying
greatly in size, from that of a small country village to an entire
world or larger, these are sometimes inhabited by astral beings of
Astral Sight: The visual sensory ability of the projected double
during an OBE. Also used to describe an ability of the physical body
to see into the astral dimension; which is a type of clairvoyance.
This ability is often experienced by projectors during the prelude
to an OBE, or during projection attempts where no actual exit is
achieved. Also see: Astral Noise.
Astral Sub-Planes: Internal levels and parts contained within a
single astral plane.
Astral Wildlife: Any energetic being or inhabitant of the lower
astral planes, having a low order of intelligence. These beings are
harmless to projectors, although many types have a mischievous,
animalistic or negative disposition. Their power is limited to
inducing fear in projectors, through various types of illusion,
trickery and deception. Although best thought of as a rarity, these
beings are occasionally found in the real time zone - mainly during
the night, as they seem to avoid daylight.
Astral Wind: A phenomenon occasionally experienced by frequent
projectors, where a strong wind-like force blows the projector up
through the dimensional spectrum to The Great Center. Also see:
Akashic Pulse, Akashic Pulse Episode, The Source.
Awareness Hands: Focal points of bodily awareness, used to
manipulate and stimulate the etheric body and its energy centers.
Also used for trance and OBE exit techniques. Also see: Mobile
Bodily Awareness, Tactile Imaging.
Awareness Momentum: The nature of a bodily awareness action to
continue on its own accord for some time after the deliberate
awareness action that caused it has been ceased. Also see: Astral
Momentum, Awareness Hands.
Awareness Resistance Factor: The resistance that is felt when
Awareness Hands are moved too rapidly through the substance of the
energy body. Also see: Awareness Hands, Bounce Action.
Bioenergetic: A construction based on "Energetic" relating in
particular to energetic (energy) functions and manifestations of the
human energy body that affect, are affected by, or are related to
the biological functions of the physical body: I.E., raising energy
causes energy movement that is felt as a physical sensation,
resulting from "Bioenergetic" stimulation of nerve endings within
the physical body. Also, Bioenergetic conflicts, Bioenergetic
stimulation, Bioenergetic development, et cetera. Also see:
Energetic, Energetically, Pure-Energetic, Energy-Movement
Body Awareness: The sense of physical body awareness, the tactile
sense of touch and feel, and the awareness of space occupied by the
physical body. Also see: Awareness Hands, Mobile Body Awareness,
Bounce Action: Where a point of body awareness is moved rapidly
through the physical/etheric body to cause widespread stimulation in
the etheric body. Also see: Awareness Resistance Factor.
Breath Awareness: Similar to an old Zen technique, where the
breathing action is focused upon. Breath Awareness is used to empty
the mind and hold it clear for extended periods of time, for
meditation, trance work and astral projection.
Brow Center: A primary energy center (or major Chakra) situated in
the brow, between the eyes. Also called The Third Eye. Also see:
Chakras, Primary Energy Centers.
Buffer Zone: An in-between area, or zone, dividing two distinct
Chakras: Eastern term, also called Psychic Center, Energy Center, or
Primary Energy Center.
Cobwebs: An irritating, tickling, sometimes slightly-stinging,
energy-movement sensation, that feels like cobwebs or tiny insects
are touching the surface of the skin. Often felt during the trance
state, this is most commonly felt in the facial area, although it
can occur anywhere on the physical body. This is caused by energy
movement through and over the skin of the physical body, which can
over-stimulate nerves in the skin, causing mild irritation. Also
see: Energy-Movement Sensations, Vibrations.
Complications Of Consciousness: Complications and conflicts caused
by a nonphysical spirit incarnating in a biological being. Also see:
Astral Feedback, Energetic Conflicts, Mind-Split, Mind-Split
Consciousness Seeds: Influential droplets of energy, or seeds,
deposited into the physical/etheric body after an Akashic Pulse
Episode. These set the relative strengths and weaknesses of the
complex attractions and repulsions, that govern the actions of
Universal Law, as set by Karmic Law. Also see: Akashic Pulse,
Akashic Pulse Episode, Akashic Records, Astral Wind.
Deja-Vu: A type of precognitive experience, a feeling of inner
knowing, of having seen, done or experienced something before an
actual event. This phenomenon is (according to the author) a common
side-effect of Akashic Pulse Episodes. Also see: Akashic Pulse
Dream: Dreaming is an internal mental process of the physical body,
that normally occurs after it has fallen asleep. While the author
classifies dreaming as an internal mental process, dreams take place
in another set of dimensions, dream dimensions, which are no less
real than any other dimension, i.e., The Astral Dimension. Lucid
Dreams also take place in dream dimensions.
Duality: The sensation of realizing you are existing in two separate
bodies, the physical body and its projected double, during an OBE.
Duality is caused by the mind-split effect, and is usually only
realized when perceptions are received from both bodies
simultaneously. For example, you project and begin operating at a
remote location from your physical body, but you are still aware of
some sensory input, usually sounds and tactile senses, coming from
your physical body. The center of consciousness will also often
flicker back and forth, between the physical and its projected
double during an OBE. Also see: Mind-Split, Mind-Split Effects,
Dweller On The Threshold: A harmless but disturbing (often
frightening) manifestation, where a projector is confronted by a
dark, threatening being, immediately after they exit their physical
body during an OBE. Also see: Astral Noise, Astral Wildlife,
Elementals: Harmless beings with little power and very low
intelligence. Often having a monkey-like appearance and mischievous
nature, these beings seem to delight in frightening and tormenting
novice projectors, through trickery and illusion, especially during
their first few conscious exit projections. Also see: Astral Noise,
Astral Wildlife, Dweller On The Threshold.
Energetic: Extensively used throughout this book. With no viable
option the dictionary meaning of this word is "bent" to cover energy
(Energetic) manifestation of the human energy body, and of its
various subtle bodies, including its projected double: i.e.,
Energetic value, Energetic activity, Energetic aspect, Energetic
function, et cetera. Also see: Energetically, Bioenergetic,
Pure-Energetic, Etheric Body.
Energetically: An extension of "Energetic", relating to any type of
energetic (energy) manifestation, sensation, affect or effect: i.e.,
Energetically speaking, Energetically sound, Energetically based,
Energetically sensed, Energetically experienced, et cetera. Also
see: Energetic, Bioenergetic, Pure-Energetic.
Energetic Angle of Perception: See: Angle of perception.
Energetic Conflicts: In the context of this book, meaning any
energetic, empathic or telepathic conflicts between the
physical/etheric body, and its projected double. Also meaning the
energetic conflicts caused by the presence of awake consciousness,
during a fully conscious OBE exit. Energetic conflicts are
responsible for heavy exit sensations, e.g., rapid heartbeat, heavy
vibrations, throbbing, pressure and adrenalin-like body rushes,
often experienced by novice projectors during early OBEs. Also see:
Astral Feedback, Complications Of Consciousness, Exit Sensations.
Energetic Makeup: The energetic quality, value and relative strength
of a projected double. This is strongly affected by the active
configuration of the primary energy centers (or major chakras)
during an OBE. This sets the capabilities of a projected double. It
also limits its level of operations to dimensional levels in tune
with its energetic value at that time. Also see: Angle Of
Energy Body: See Etheric body.
Energy-Movement Sensations: As energy is generated, transformed,
accumulated, and moved about the physical/etheric body, nerves
within the physical body often become over-stimulated. This causes a
variety of tingling, buzzing, throbbing, pulsing and fluttering
sensations, often felt as sweeping through the physical body in
waves, or as whole body adrenalin-like rushes. Also see:
Bioenergetic, Cobwebs, Vibrations.
Etheric Body: The subtle body most closely associated with and
enmeshed within the physical body. Also often called the energy
body, etheric sheath, vitality sheath, vitality body, or perispirit.
The etheric body can also be said to be the essential glue-like
substance, that binds an incarnating spirit to the flesh of their
physical body. Parts of the etheric body can be seen with
clairvoyance (or auric sight) as extending an inch or so out from
the physical body, as a band of pale-blue or off-white mist. Also
see: Energetic, Etheric Matter.
Etheric Matter: The nonphysical energetic substance of the energy
body (or etheric body). This can be caused to exist in a variety of
different forms, and is best thought of as being something similar
to ectoplasm, but is generally invisible to the naked eye. This can
be seen with clairvoyance or auric sight, and will also often
inexplicably appear on photographs, as pale, indistinct, cloudlike
shapes and figures. Also see: Etheric Body, Thought Forms.
Etheric/Real-Time Double: The base-level energetic vehicle (or
subtle body) generated during a Near Death Experience (NDE), after
the physical body has become temporarily deceased. Also the state of
existence experienced immediately after physical body death; which
is usually within the real time zone. Also see: Etheric Body, NDE,
Real-Time Body, Real-Time Zone.
Exit: In the context of this book, often meaning "The Exit" of the
projectable double, as it leaves the confines of its physical body
during an OBE or astral projection.
Exit Sensations: The often heavy energy-movement sensations,
experienced during the exit phase of an OBE, e.g., rapid heartbeat,
vibrations and pressure. Heavy exit sensations are often experienced
by novice projectors during early projections. These always
gradually ease, as experience and development are gained by a
projector. Also see: Cobwebs, Energetic Conflicts, Energy-Movement
Flicker Technique: A technique designed by the author, to help
overcome OBE memory-loss problems. An OBE reentry technique, where
consciousness is allowed to flicker between the sleep/awake state at
a predetermined time. A brief window is thereby artificially
created, by the flickering state, through which OBE memories can be
downloaded into accessible levels of memory. Also See: Memory
Download, Shadow Memory.
The Great Center: Top level of dimensional spectrum. Also see: The
Inner-Body Projection: The internal transfer of waking consciousness
into the Etheric Body, as the trance state is entered. This also
occurs while falling asleep. Also see: Trance State.
Internal Dialogue: Surface mind chatter caused by random thoughts,
also called monkey mind. Also See: Surface Mind.
Karma: In the author's opinion, Karma is what is referred to as Sin
in the Holy Bible. Karma is the accumulated influential force
generated by all past acts of consciousness, positive and negative,
of good and bad deeds. Through Karma, a spirit is enabled to obtain
the real life experiences it requires to progress spiritually
(through living experience), via multiple incarnations into the
physical dimension. Karma allows a spirit to maintain a healthy
spiritual balance, life after life, and helps avoid the possibility
of soul corruption. Karma is not a process of reward and punishment.
Karma provides spiritual harmony through a process of enforced
spiritual balance. Also see: Karmic Law, Universal Law.
Karmic Law: For every act of consciousness performed by an
individual, an equal and opposite reaction is generated, which is
eventually inflicted upon them in turn by Karmic Law. This is aptly
expressed by the popular sayings: "What goes around comes around" or
"as you sow so shall ye reap". Also see: Karma, Universal Law.
Koala: A Koala is a small, herbivorous, tree dwelling, bear-like,
pouched mammal, found on the island continent of sunny Australia;
commonly called a Koala Bear.
Kundalini: Kundalini is the traditional Eastern name for what is
called: "the master circuit" within this book. Kundalini is the
strongest of all human bioenergetic circuits - the ultimate
bioenergetic expression of being. When this is fully activated (when
Kundalini rises), a powerful, internal, snakelike energy movement is
felt, often accompanied by a painful burning sensation. This
"snakelike" force is felt as uncoiling three-and-a-half turns inside
the physical body, in an upward and clockwise direction: hence the
Eastern term often used to describe this profound energetic
phenomenon: "The Serpent of Fire".
Lucid Dream: When a dreamer becomes aware, or wakes up inside a
dream, they are said to be "lucid dreaming".
Lucid Dream Projection: A technique whereby a W.I.L.D. or
Wake-Induced Lucid Dream, can be achieved as an alternative to a
full OBE exit.
Memory Download: In the context of this book, meaning the
downloading of OBE memories into conscious and recallable memory
storage levels, of the physical/etheric body/mind. Failed memory
downloading occurs when OBE memories are downloaded into
subconscious and unconscious levels of memory. This is the primary
cause of the vast majority of failed OBEs. Without the memory of it,
an OBE did not take place; not according to the conscious mind and
its recallable memories, after a failed memory download, or failed
OBE. Also see: Shadow Memory.
Metaphorical Imagery: Within the context of this book, this term
particularly applies to live action visions and OBE vision
experiences, viewed or experienced first-hand during an OBE. These
contain layered metaphorical symbols and symbolic actions, full of
hidden meaning, often disguised as apparently real life scenes,
during visions and out-of-body vision experiences.
Mind-Split: The splitting of consciousness into two identical parts,
that occurs during any type of OBE. The mind-split occurs at the
beginning of any OBE, prior to the exit of the projected double out
of its physical counterpart. There are two bodies during an OBE (one
physical and one subtle or energetic - projected double). Two minds
(one physical and one energetic) therefore exist. Each of these
function independently for the duration of an OBE, until reentry
occurs where they reintegrate, becoming one mind again. Also see:
Mind-Split Effects: In particular, the effects the mind-split has
upon OBE memory recall. The commonly felt sensations of dual
existence, that of existing in more than one place at the same time,
during an OBE. Also meaning the telepathic, energetic and empathic
interactions and conflicts, that occur between the physical
body/mind and its projected body/mind. Also see: Astral Feedback,
Complications Of Consciousness, Energetic Conflicts, Memory
Mobile Body Awareness (MBA): The ability to move and focus body
awareness at different locations, on or within the physical body.
Also see: Awareness Hands, Body Awareness, Tactile Imaging.
Near-Death Experience (NDE): Where a person temporarily dies and
experiences a powerful OBE, until they are resuscitated. Also see:
Out-of-Body Experience (OBE): Where consciousness is perceived as
existing and operating outside of its physical body. Also called OOBE, projection, or astral projection.
Physical/Etheric body: Combined physical and etheric bodies. In
particular, where these are experiencing the trance state, where the
etheric body has become active and expanded slightly. Also applies
to the physical/etheric body during an OBE, after the projected
double has already parted. See also: Etheric Body, Inner-Body
projection, Mind-Split, Trance State.
Primary Energy Centers: The major bioenergetic organs, or energetic
transformers, of the energy body. Also see: Chakras.
Projectable Double: Internally generated real time double, prior to
its projection out of its physical/etheric body; where it then
becomes the projected double.
Projected Double: The energetic vehicle (or subtle body) housing a
functioning, energetic copy of a projector's mind and memories,
outside of their physical body during any type of OBE.
Projection Mechanism: The energetic mechanism that generates and
then ejects the projectable double, outside the bounds of its
physical body, during the OBE or projection exit. Also see: Exit,
Projection Reflex: When the projection mechanism gets to a certain
stage, the energetic point of no return is reached. The ejection of
the projectable double outside the bounds of its physical body, then
becomes a reflex action. An OBE cannot be aborted once the
projection reflex has been triggered. Also see: Projected Double,
Pure-Energetic: A construction based on "Energetic" relating in
particular to high-level energetic (energy) functions and
manifestations, of the human energy body, that do not specifically
apply to its physical body. For example, the higher energetic
(energy) functions of the energy body and its primary energy centers
(major chakras) cause psychic abilities. A psychic ability is thus a
Pure-Energetic function, or Pure Energy manifestation, of the human
energy body. However, Pure-Energetic manifestations will often cause
Bioenergetic sensations, felt as physical sensations, i.e., the
typical throbbing and buzzing emanating from active primary energy
centers (major chakras). Pure-Energetic can also refer to energetic
functions and manifestations of subtle bodies above the human energy
body, i.e., the astral body. Also see: Bioenergetic, Energetic,
Energetically, Etheric Body, Primary Energy Centers.
Real-Time Body: The subtle body (or energetic vehicle) that houses a
projector's reflection of consciousness, mind and memory during an
OBE, and holds it close to the physical dimension in the Real-Time
Zone. Also see: Real-Time Projection, Real-Time Zone.
Real-Time Projection: An OBE, where a projector exists in a direct
reflection of reality, where they have the perception of being an
invisible person in the real world, observing real life events as
they happen. Also see: Real-Time Body, Real-Time Zone.
Real-Time Sight: Similar to Astral Sight, but where the projector
sees into the real time zone around them. Also related to
clairvoyance, this ability is often experienced during the prelude
to an OBE, or during a projection attempt where no exit is achieved.
This is often mistaken for normal optical sight, but where the
projector is seeing through their closed eyelids and bed covers.
Also see: Astral Sight.
Real-Time Zone: The closest nonphysical dimensional area to the
physical universe. A buffer zone separating the physical universe
from the astral dimension proper. The real time zone is neither in
the astral dimension, nor in the physical dimension. It is a
nonphysical dimensional environment that contains a direct
reflection of reality, as reality happens, i.e., in a real time
frame. Also see: Real-Time Body, Real-Time Projection.
Reality Fluctuations: Fluctuations in the out-of-body environment,
changing what is perceived as being real or normal at that time,
into something that is known to be false or inaccurate.
Reentry: When the projected double returns to and reenters its
physical counterpart at the end of any type of OBE. Also see:
Reintegration: The automatic energetic process, whereby the
projected double is reintegrated with its physical/etheric body.
Also see: Reentry.
Remote Eye: A mind-split effect. This phenomenon is a type of OBE,
but where the projector remains partially awake and ambulatory. A
weak version of the mind split occurs, and type of a low-powered OBE
happens. The OBE side of this type of experience is perceived by the
partially awake physical body of the projector, as a vivid
mind's-eye vision of an OBE in progress, from the projected double's
perspective, but where no actual OBE exit has been noticed. Also
see: Duality, Complications Of Consciousness, Duality, Mind-Split,
Rope: A OBE projection exit technique, using Awareness Hands to
climb an imaginary Rope. Also see: Awareness Hands, Tactile
Secondary Energy Centers: Minor energy centers (minor Chakras) that
support the primary energy centers. Also see: Chakras, Primary
Shadow Memory: Any dream or OBE experience memory, gained by any
subtle or dream or projected body while it is separated, or while it
perceives itself to be separated, from its physical body. Also see:
Silver Cord: The energetic, telepathic, empathic linkage that
connects the physical body to its projected double. This is often
seen as a sparkling Silver Cord, extending away from the projected
double during an OBE. This is usually only seen when it is
deliberately looked for. The site of attachment on the projected
double varies, according to its energetic makeup at the time of
projection. Also see: Energetic Makeup.
Sleep Projection: Natural sleep projection occurs whenever a person
sleeps. The projected double is projected outside the physical body
during sleep, often floating just above it and mimicking the
sleeping position of its physical body. Alternatively, a sleep
projector may travel the astral planes for some time before falling
asleep. Also see: Akashic Pulse Episode, Astral Wind.
The Source: The Supreme Being. The central creative consciousness of
the physical universe. The Source is the original spark of
consciousness that creates and maintains the universe, and all that
lies and lives within it. Also see: The Great Center.
Storage Centers: In the context of this book, these are called the
sub-navel, sub-heart and sub-brow energy storage centers. These are
the major energy storage areas of the energy body, with each storing
a different type of energy.
Strobe Effect: When a primary energy centre accumulates a critical
charge of energy, it strobes powerfully. When the brow centre (or
brow chakra) strobes, it causes a brilliant flash of silver-white
light to be seen in the mind's eye, and a feeling of very-light
concussion to be felt, in the whole facial area.
Surface Mind: The most commonly used part of the human mind, that
can be said to hold the short-term working memory. Used for light
thinking and internal mental speech, it spontaneously generates a
constant stream of random thoughts and impressions. This part of the
mind is responsible for the ceaseless internal mental dialogue found
within an untrained or unfocused mind. Also see: Internal Dialogue.
Tactile Imaging (T.I.): The active use of focused body awareness, to
manipulate and stimulate the energy body, to raise energy into it
and stimulate its energy centers. T.I. is also used for projection
techniques. Also see: Awareness Hands, Mobile Body Awareness.
Tertiary Energy Centers: Tiny, pore-like energy centers found all
over the body, like the pores of the skin. These are heavily
concentrated in several areas, e.g., palms of hands, soles of feet,
mouth and genitals. These exchange energy with the environment, and
energetically support the functions of the larger secondary and
primary energy centers. Also see: Chakras, Primary Energy Centers,
Secondary Energy Centers, Storage Centers.
Third Eye: See, Brow Center.
Thought Forms: Energetic objects, thought creations, created by a
sustained thought or act of consciousness, and then existing for a
limited time in the out-of-body environment. Thought forms are best
considered as being composed of structured Etheric Matter. Thought
forms can take any shape: human, animal or inanimate object.
Reputedly, they can be programmed to react to stimuli, to perform
independent actions, and even to take on a limited kind of
pseudoconsciousness of their own. The length of time a thought form
can exist, depends largely upon the strength and duration of the
thought used to create and maintain it. Also see: Etheric Matter.
Torso Energy Rush: The adrenalin-like energetic body rush, felt by
the physical body as rushing upwards through its legs and torso, as
its projected double begins to exit or reenter it. Also see:
Energy-Movement Sensations, Exit, Projection Mechanism, Projection
Trance State: The altered state of being entered when the physical
body falls asleep, while the mind stays wide awake. The trance state
has many levels and uses, with each level being related to a level
of sleep. Altered states of consciousness are attained, by staying
awake and varying the level and focus of the trance state.
Light Trance: Similar to the Alpha trance state.
Full Trance: Similar to the Theta trance state.
Deep Trance: Similar to the Delta trance state.
Trigger Word or Phrase: A descriptive word or short phrase used
during the reentry phase of an OBE, to help strengthen OBE memory
recall. Also see: Memory Download, Reentry, Reintegration, Shadow
Universal Law: The incredibly complex set of attractions and
repulsions and conditional influences, that emanates from every
conscious being. Like may attract like and opposites may often
attract, but only as set by karmic law. Also see: Akashic Pulse
Episode, Consciousness Seeds, Deja vu, Karma, Karmic Law.
Vibrations: In the context of this book, meaning strong, usually
whole-body, energy-movement sensation, that are felt as vibrations
in the physical body. This is associated with the internal
generation of the projectable double, at the start of an OBE. Also
see: Energetic Conflicts, Energy-Movement Sensations, Exit,
Virtual Reality Projection (VRP): V.R.P. is a technique whereby a
custom made astral realm can be created and then entered.
Wake Induced Lucid Dream. (W.I.L.D.): A term coined by S. LaBerge
(see bibliography). A deliberately induced lucid dream, from a
deeply relaxed but awake state, where there has been no discernible
break in consciousness. A W.I.L.D. dreamer enters a dreamscape
directly from the full waking state. Although technically a lucid
dream, this is possibly the most powerful type of OBE possible. Also
see: Dream, Lucid Dream, Lucid Dream Projection.
Waking Paralysis: Also called sleep paralysis. Disassociation
between the physical body and its mind, often causing total physical
paralysis to occur. In the author's opinion, this is a powerful
mind-split effect caused by OBE. The mind literally wakes up inside
its disassociated, paralyzed physical body while a powerful OBE is
still in full progress. Also see: Complications Of Consciousness,
Mind-Split, Mind-Split Effects.
